 Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  88.8  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast 25' per copy on news stands      March 7,1988        Volume 42 Issue 10  A number 'at risk'  Welfare of youth  causes concern  t'ub Scouts from all over the Sunshine Coast gathered lust weekend  and in spite of the rain maintained a high level of energetic en  thusiasm, Here some are shown in u rela) race where participants  must place objects in a scries of cups. ���Ken Collins photo  Lowest per capita in province  Libraries starved for funding  "We simply can't slay open  with only volunteers running It,  It's jusi nol possible," Gibsons  Librarian Pain Feichtner told a  joint meeting of library boards  and municipal representatives  last week. The meeling had been  arranged lo clarify exactly what  needs lo be done by governmenl  officials to permit Sunshine  Coasl libraries and reading centres access lo more funding,  The Regional Dislricl has  stated their willingness io  establish a library function  under Ihe regional board which  would allow ihem lo sel a  budget for funding libraries and  make Ihem eligible to receive a  larger provincial grant lor  books which would be divided  amongst the centres,  But the Sunshine Coasl  Regional Dislricl (SCRD) won't  do anything until il is approached by Gibsons and Sechell  Councils wilh a clear statement  of whal ihey wanl and iheir in-  lenlion of participating.  "The SCRD is nol going lo  Initiate anything," Larry Jar-  dine lold Ihe meeting. "We  have been accused of trying lo  lake ihings over and we won't  be accused of trying lo lake over  the library function."  The route lhal needs to be  laken, from the SCRD's poinl  of view he explained, is that the  municipalities and library  boards will have lo conic lo  some agreement of what their  relationship is going to be. The  libraries can choose lo remain  societies and go lor grams from  the municipalities, or become  municipal libraries and present  a clear outline lo the SCRD of  whal they need lo have done.  An McPhee from the Sechell  library board summed il up,  "The bottom line is, how much  responsibility are ihe  municipalities prepared to accept for Ihe libraries? Thai's'  whal Ihe SCRD needs lo  know."  Each library and reading centre gave a reporl on their cur-  rcnl situation and needs. Bolh  Sechell and Gibsons described  severe space restrictions, bul  iheir mosl pressing need is adequately paid staff. The libraries  arc staffed mainly by  volunteers.  Gibsons representatives said  ihey could gel by, io slarl with,  on a fulltime clerk working 25  hours per week and a junior  clerk for Ihe same amount of  lime, bul staled firmly lhal they  should be working lo be open al  leasl thirty hours per week lo  meel Ihe public demand and  thai would require a third  tulliinie staff member.  The slory from Ihe Sechell  library was much the same.  Their representative said that  the current employee works 15  hours per week, and her hours  need lo be extended to 17.5  hours per week, with a second  staff member for the same  length of lime.  Please turn lo page 19  The School Board is seriously  concerned for the welfare of  teenagers on the Sunshine  Coasl. Al a press conference  lasl Friday, Chairman Maureen  Clayton outlined ihe results of  an analysis conducted by principals and counsellors of the  three high schools in the  Dislricl.  The analysis revealed thai a  significant number of students  in ihe district's secondary  schools are believed by school  personnel io be "al risk". The  term "al risk" describes a condilion which brings students to  a stale of crisis. The levels of  sludenl crisis range from mild  lo severe. Students may be in a  state of unremitting crisis or  move sporadically in and oul of  crisis as iheir circumstances  change. Bul the fad remains  lhal loo many students in the  secondary schools of ihis  dislricl encounter personal and  social problems which  delibilalc, diminish ihe quality  of iheir lives, and reduce, often  drastically, iheir capacity lo  leam.  The causes of student crises  are familiar io all teachers and  io mosi members of ihe public.  They include: depression and  social maladjustment which, if  left untreated, can lead io  suicidal tendencies; child abuse  in all ils forms, and parental  neglect; drug and alcohol abuse,  bolh in ihe family and practised  by the students themselves; extreme distress which develops in  families where ihere is divorce  or separation, death or inadequate   parenting;   teenage  pregnancies (seven in [he first  half of ihis year in ihis dislricl);  problems wilh law enforcement  agencies.  Clayton went on to say that  although many of ihe problems  originate outside Ihe schools,  ihe effects are fell within the  school selling, making il difficult or impossible for students  io learn or live normal lives.  "The Board" said Claylon  "will be seeking help from all  the recognized agencies, bul Ihis  is a community problem and we  are looking for help and cooperation from all members of  ihe community",  Asked whether ihe problem  was worse on Ihe Sunshine  Coasl, Claylon replied, "No. It  seems io be happening  everywhere. It's just lhat this is  a very close-knil community  and we care. People know each  olher on the Coasl so il makes  Ihe problem a personal one."  Discussing ihe possible causes  of ihe problem, Brian Butcher,  Principal of Chatelech Secondary School said, "1 have never  been in a community where  ihere was less for young people  lo do. This is an adult oriented  community."  District Superintendent Art  Holmes suggesled lhal il was  undoubtedly a sign of ihe limes.  Economic pressures, fear of  nuclear war and concern over  pollution all create an atmosphere of fear lhal permeates  Ihe whole society and creates  the pressures that produce the  problems lhal we are dealing  with.  Please turn to page 19  Residents object  Bluff sewer debate boils on  The bluff sewer controversy  livened up Gibsons council  meeling Tuesday and cable TV  viewers gol a good chance lo see  democracy in act ion.  It was question and answer  period and bluff resident Mr.  Lasuta was there again in the  gallery wilh a contingent of  residents opposed io extending  the sewer lo the bluff. The main  Objection is thai many people  have gone lo greal expense lo  install private sewage treatment  systems lhal are effective and  liicy do nol wanl lo pay more  for sewage disposal ihey do nol  feel Ihey need.  TO lop il off, properly  owners, many of whom reside  off Ihe coasl, have been con-  (acted ami asked lo respond if  ihey oppose Ihe planned extension,  Thai is nol fair says Insula.  "Unanswered letters should  be considered spoiled ballots,"  he lold council, alter being informed by Town Administrator  Lorraine Goddard lhal only Iwo  Idlers were received expressing  approval of the plan.  Each properly owner has a  vole, or in the case of a jointly  owned properly, ihe majority of  the owners of lhal properly  decide in which direction a  single vole is cast. Bul ihe voles  are nol all equal. The slrenglh  . of each vole is measured by the  assessed value of Ihe properly.  According lo Goddard there  has been legitimate opposition  registered from owners of 29 of  ihe 59 lots involved representing  $728,800 of Ihe lotal of  $1,513,600 parcel value.  "The opposing petition and  letters are," she Muted in a  reporl lo council, "insufficient  to   prevent   Ihe   work   being  undertaken as a local improvement,"  Bul Lasuta is nol sure lhal  people know whal Ihey are gelling inlo for costs: Al a previous  council meeling he questioned  Ihe estimated costs. Prior lo Ihis  meeting he actually contacted  l he engineers.  "They gave me a lol of facts.  $225,000 will probably lake care  of il," he conceded. "Bin ii  doesn't, lake inlo consideration  hookup.  "A normal hookup is around  $6(X) bul we arc nol lalking  aboul a normal hookup," lie  said and went on lo state he  believed ii would be more like  $4,800 on the bluff.  Lasuta's proposal, supported  by Alderman John Reynolds,  was io allow his participation in  formulating an information lei-  $1 million spent  Road stopped by  lack of right of way  ler dial included installation,  hookup, and pumping. This Idler, if compatible with council,  would Ihen go oul lo all properly owners allecled.  "Any Idler must be considered by all members of council," said Mayor Diane Slrom.  "And, Mr. Lasuta," she added before calling Ihe question  session lo an end, "there is no  problem with you meeting wilh  us, as ihere is no problem wilh  anyone meeling with us."  Redrooffs fire  The Dombrowski residence on Redrooffs Road was completely demolished by lire on Sunday morning al 10:00 am  when the occupanl was al church. Firemen arrived promptly  bin were nol able lo save the structure.  Reporter swears  MLA Larry Guno's name is as ii appears here and not as ii  was reported in Ihis paper's article on the NDP fact finding  leam investigating Aquaculture. The reporter responsible has  sworn lo mend his ways.  Two arrested  On March 5. 1988 al approximately 2:30 am, Gibsons  RCMP were notified of a break-in al the Village Slore in  lower Gibsons in ihe earl) hours of Saturday morning.  Police arrived within minutes and with assistance from a  member of the general public were directed towards a possible suspect.  Police arrested iwo men from Vancouver as ihey attempted  io flee in a boal near ihe Governmenl Wharf.  The iwo have been charged wilh break, enter and theft and  will appear in Sechell Provincial Court ou April 5.  "The Social Credil policy on  highway construction proves  iheir Inability 10 manage Ihe  public money effectively."  Ihose were ihe opening remarks  made by B.C. Liberal Leader  Gordon Wilson as he addressed  community members ai a ques-  lion and answer session following a public meeting in Sechell,  B.C. Ihis week.  Wilson was citing the currenl  posilion of ihe Highways  Ministry with regard lo ihe now  abandoned seclion of Highway  101 north of Sechelt,  "Whal we have is a million  dollar road lo nowhere" he said  referring lo Ihe million dollars  of lax money recently spent on  ihe upgrading of Highway 101.  Wilson weiil on lo say lhal  Ihe million dollars from Ihe  Capital Maintenance Programme had been approved  prior lo Ihe righl of way being  secured.  "Now (hey have lo negotiate  Ihe land purchase afler already  starting Ihe project. There is Ut  ile wonder lhal ihe land owner  is holding oul. Allci all,  wouldn't you if you know lhal  ihe Highways Ministry had  ahead) speni a million dollars  righl up io your doorsiep."  The B.C. l Iberal I eader said  in a Intel sialcnicnl lhal in a  telephone conversation he had  had wilh Mi. Bob Hilton,  Deputy Ministry of Highways,  Mr. Flltton confirmed that ibis  regrettably was common practice in ihe Highways Ministry  and in fad is also Ihe case on a  major project near Parksville  on Vancouver Island, as well as  phase Iwo of Ihe Coquihalla  Highway.  Wilson restated Ihe need lo  gel highway construction back  on irack immediately and said  lhal il was lime he invited ihe  media lo conic and "sec for  themselves" how our lax dollars  are being spent,  Wilson will call a press conference on Ihe Highway 101 siie  ai 9 am on Wednesday morning, March 9.

How can we justify ihis continuing disgrace? At a time  when teachers and school trustees arc lamenting the lack of  facilities for the young among us, how can we continue 10  underfund our libraries to such a disgraceful degree?  Thai we have libraries al all is due only 10 the self-  sacrifice of volunteers we have been taking for grained for  years ami whose pleas lor help we systematically ignore.  I hree or four years ago Gibsons quadrupled ils annual  library gram ami was still al lhal lime well below every  oilier municipality in ihe province in ihe support of its  library.  Gibsons lost ihai distinction when Sechell restructured  from a village of SIX) to a distrlcl municipality of close io  5,lXX) bul did nol significant!) add lo Ihe funds available lo  ils library,  Can our politicians be persuaded to drop their personal  feuds and foi gel their personal megaprojects long enough  io vole a respectable amount of money io fund our  libraries? Do Ihe people of the Sunshine Coasl really care  so little aboul the availability of books?  Too busy  to think  And while we are thinking critically, how about our  million dollar road io nowhere? That il should be common  practice to start building highways before acquiring the  necessary land is mind-boggling.  Whal this province needs is lo elect a governmenl wilh  sonic competence and sonic common sense regardless of  ils political hue. Ihe waste and Incompetence which is  commonplace is outrageous and we continue to battle  away aboul philosophic illusions.  Nero al least was Irving lo make music while Rome  burnt. We're jusi loo busy arguing lo ihink.  5 YEARS AGO  "We are going to honour our commitment for a late  nighl lerry sailing in the summer schedule," said B.C.  Feriies Chairman Slu Hodgson in Gibsons last week.  Hodgson was on the Sunshine Coasl al Ihe request ol  Ihe regional Transportation Committee.  The aquacullure conference sponsored by the  Economic Development Commission and held last week  at Ihe regional board offices in Sechell reflected the  growing interest locally in Ihe aquaculture business, as  14 oyster farmers, 12 salmon farmers and two commercial fishermen from Ihe local area and Vancouver Island  discussed the progress in their operations, and the problems facing the young industry.  10 YEARS AGO  Reported sightings ol UFOs have been identified as  ISOs. The Identified Standing Objects, sighted around  Ihe Granthams area, first reported as UFOs are apparently Ihe headlights ol standing train engines on the B.C.  Railway track lo Squamish.  15 YEARS AGO  Vandalism is becoming so serious lhal Gibsons'  mayor Waller Peleison and the aldermen will seek advice  Irom the Gibsons Detachment ol Ihe RCMP. Bolh Ihe  mayor and aldermen regarded Ihe situation as serious  with many home, church and school windows having  been broken recently.  20 YEARS AGO  Too many unlicenced  dogs are roaming Gibsons  streets menacing citizens, children and small dogs which  they are attacking and killing.  A whale captured in Pender Harbour was photographed lasl week.  25 YEARS AGO  Chief Charles Craigan was re-elected chief ol Sechell  Band council and a fourth member was added lo the  councillors because ol a population increase. The band  is allotted one councillor lor each 100 in the band. Presenl population is 437.  30 YEARS AGO  Mr. Henry Smood, building contractor from Porl Alber-  ni, and owner ol the sleek $15,000 Navion aircraft standing mud-splattered but otherwise undamaged on the  liny emergency airstrip al Wilson Creek, was thankful indeed lo have found a haven in his time ol Irouble and  praised the municipalities for their foresight in having  developed a much needed airfield In Ihis localion.  35 YEARS AGO  Al Roberls Creek last Friday evening, a near capacity  audience gathered in the community hall to hear the programme presented by the Roberls Creek Siring Orchestra, under the able direction of Miss Margaret Macln-  tyre.  40 YEARS AGO  The modern logger is now equipped wilh powersaws  and sleel helmets, a condsiderable improvemenl over the  old spring board, axe and crosscut saw equipment.

Nexl week he returns to El  Salvador, with Honduras added  to ihe itinerary, and he will be  spending Iwo weeks looking inlo the refugee camps.  In an interview with the  Coasl News lasl week, he talked  aboul ihe situation in Central  America, whal he saw ihere and  whal he e.xpecls from his upcoming trip.  C.N.: Why FT Salvador particularly? Why nol Nicaragua'.' i  SKELLY: The 24th of March  is the anniversary of Ihe  assassination of Oscar Ramaro,  so there's probably going lo be  a major public demonstration in  San Salvador. Every lime  they've done It, Ihe army's  broken il up and killed a bunch  of people. It's going to be interesting to sec, alter a couple of  years. You know ihey claim it's  moving forward toward a more  democratic process.  The oilier thing is that the  elections are going to go on. All  Ihe mayors of the major communities will be elected as well  as the legislators, so dial's going  to be interesting to see how lhal  goes down.  C.N.: You're going lo be arriving there al a very explosive  lime, withoul a fleet of bodyguards. Doesn't that concern  you?  SKELLY: I ihink that what  would happen lo you is you  could gel caught in a bad situation accidently. When 1 left on  the last trip, I had no idea what  was happening, I was on the  ground in Mexico City and then  il started to conic together a liltle more clearly.  Ii turned out fine, There were  a lol of precautions, When we  niei with ihe socialist parly  down there, they ran you down  through a whole series of  buildings and long hallways.  And al every turn, you were  frisked. They've jusi been this  route so many times thai  everybody who went into thai  room had been frisked Iwo or  three limes.  And for example, the people  are extremely cautious, even  aboul talking lo you.  C.N.: Is Ihis something new?  I don'l remember the NDP in  Ihe past becoming so personally  involved in international investigations?  SKELLY: Il just makes me  so goddamned angry lhal ihey  can do lhal. You know ... jusi  ... ihey killed 65,000, literally  murdered 65,000 people. And  lhal doesn't count Ihe deaths  from the civil war. Just round  you up, torture you, mutilate  you and kill you - kids, adults,  men, women, you know,  everyone, jusi because ihey  ihink you'd probably vole  wrong if there was an election,  II just is outrageous.  And Canada has laken such a  rotten position on ihis, because  of our proximity lo Ihe United  States. The budgei in place  from 1986 - Salvadoreans put in  aboul   $580,000,000  Americans pul in over  $600,000,000. They pay for the  army, pay lor all Ihe guns, ammunitions, infraslructure,  equipment, airplanes ...  everything. And by proxy Ihey  paid for Ihe death squads.  They never complain aboul  il. They've had two major kill-  ings of Americans, ihe nuns in  1980 who were killed. They  were kidnapped, raped and  murdered. Edith Ford was one  of ihem. And she has a brolher  in New York. He's been working for seven years to try and  gel...Ihey know exactly who did  it...to gel some kind of court  proceeding on it. He's been  totally unsuccessful.  And the olher one was Iwo  employees of the American  Agrarian Reform Workers,  who were working with the  Agrarian Reform Commission  down ihere. 1 hree people walk  inlo the reslauranl in the  Sheraton Hold there and use  (heir machine guns. And Ihey  all walk oul like Ihere was jusi  nothing to it. They know exactly who did lhal and they've  never been broughl lo justice  either, because ihe governmenl  jusi says 'drop dead'.  C.N.: What are you planning  on doing with ihe information,  whal you see and learn, alter  your irip?  SKELLY: Whai we're contemplating actually is a meeting  in every area. We'd like lo do  some publicity on the thing.  This aVca is really active in terms  of Central American issues and  agencies.  We're doing a fair amount  with ihe Nicaraguan Embassy in  Ottawa, trying to make sure  thai Nicaragua's been completely cul off from export credit by-  Canada.  There's been son of the silent  hand of Ihe American governmenl  encouraging Canada lo  participate in a blockade.  C.N.: Nicaragua has been cul  off from export to Canada?  SKELLY: Yeah, by the E.x-  porl Development Commission.  There's a lot of interesting  things thai go on Ihere. Like  Nicaragua, once cut oui of the  American markets, really  started to target areas in  Canada's basic exports; beef,  coffee, sugar and so on.  Mexico, which is massively in  debl to us. who will never repay  the debt, is given all sons of export developmeni credit. Bul  Nicaragua has a very small debl  that existed with Ihe Samosa  governmenl, so Samosa ran up  the debt with us, then raided the  treasury and ran off lo  Paraguay. The new regime can-  nol gel export credit wilh us  even though Ihere is a small c.x-  isiing debt. Il is likely those  kinds of things have been pul in  place by the Americans.  We cannol purchase products  in the United States, a Canadian  company, and then trans-ship it  io Nicaragua. We have an  agreement with the Americans  that we will not aid the  Nicaraguans by purchasing and  transmitting through ihe  blockade.  C.N.: What's Ihe NDP  foreign policy on Cenlial  America?  SKELLY: h's very supportive. You know.,.human rights,  1 guess you'd find thai generally  things like foreign aid would be  dependent on performance, Ihe  move towards democratization',  and human rights, thai type of  thing.  There'd be a lot more outspoken criticism of what's going  on down there and attempts to  tie into the peace process.  Skelly will be returning to  Canada on March 24th.  On the road with Ian Tyson  by Stephen Hubert  Since first coming to Canada  from Hawaii in 1976, I have  heard much aboul Canadian  folk hero Ian Tyson. In par-  lieular I was alerted aboul the  classic Tyson composition  'Summer Wages', which captures a bittersweet taste of  Pacific northwest life.  It was many years later when  I first heard the song and shortly after that when I discovered  his then newly released album  'Old Corrals and Sagebrush'.  These firsl encounters with  the man's music gave me a clear  indication lhat this was an  unusual artist whose work I  should look into. The style and  texture of the music on 'Old  Corrals...' distinguished it from  other, more commercial country music recordings in thai  there was a definite 'Western'  edge to the material and also in  that the musicianship and performances on the record were  unusually creative.  By the time Tyson's second  Columbia Records release in the  series, titled simply, 'Ian  Tyson', was in my possession  the following year, I was a true  fan. Still today, I am stunned by  the creativity of some of the  work on this second album.  Working oul of a very traditional sense of Western music,  he slays true to these rools while  creating a sound that is at once  progressive and contemporary.  It is this quality which, for me,  marks this man as one of the  truly credible artists of our lime.  Il is the task of an artist (in any  field) to show us something of  the lime we are living in as that  time relates to the larger scheme  of filings, to give us lhal feeling  of iranscendence.  Ian Tyson's art shows us the  passing herds of buffalo and  hard working buckaroos againsl  a backdrop of whistling winds,  rustling sagebrush and a changing world where nothing will be  as it was,  Last year, when the third  album in this series, 'Cowboy-  ography' was released, I was  immedialcly struck by the  maturity of the song writing and  the freshness of the production.  It was clear to me that Tyson  was settling in to what he  wanted to be doing.  When the opportunity to join  his band for an up-coming  American tour dropped into my  lap this past September, I saw it  as an opportunity lo explore the  man and his music more closely.  If Ian Tyson lakes anything  seriously, il is his life as a  cowboy.  He maintains a tidy ranch in  southern Alberta where he  raises and trains culling horses.  This pasl fall one of his horses  (nickname, 'Blghead') won the  non-pro Futurity in BC and the  Canadian challenge at the  Calgary Stampede in Alberta.  Ian, of course, was ihe trainer  and rider al bolh events. (Cutting horses are specially bred lo  select certain cows oul of a herd  and 'cut' them free; unique intelligence and skills arc required).  It is Tyson's genuine interest  in this life and his remarkable  talent as an artist which combine lo give us songs capturing  the realism of the western  lifestyle.  In Montana, as a particular  example, one of the songs from  'Cowboyography' is being  heralded as ihe state song. Entitled 'The Gift', the selection  outlines the life of artist Charles  M. Russell against a suggestion  that 'The Lord' chose Charlie  Russell to mark the passing of  the west.  hi anolher song from the new  album, filled 'Fifty Years Ago'  dan's favourite), the artist uses  a  real  life  brothel  in   Elko,  I believe Ian Tyson has  chosen his place in history  carefully, He has.refused the  glitter of Nashville and stuck  with ihe integrity his lifestyle as  a working cowboy demands,  From whai I heard I believe his  besl work in music is yet to  come, fhings seem lo be going  his way after 25 years in this  business. Maybe ihe price we  have io pay lor an arlisl of Ihis  stature is thai we have lo accept  a man who may be a little more  callous publicly lhan his art  would indicate. And so the  story goes.  ''Aml I've kept right on a gain'  But I drink before I ride  That bottle brings me courage  I believe I'm damn near out of  pride  I think I'd get me a factory job  If you 'd help me make my stand  Hetty, leave your lights on  dariin'  I'm gonna make it if lean..."  "Old Cheyenne"  from "Cowboyography"  (copyright Ian Tyson)  Please turn to page 19 Coast News, March 7,1988  Fundraiser found to be outrageous  Editor:  I was outraged to learn that  local organizers raised funds for  our high school hero by selling  tickets to an evening of entertainment that included naked  women wrestling on stage!  What could they have been  thinking of? Everyone knows  the really big money is in  kinkier stuff. If this many male  pillars of our community paid  twenty dollars to see naked  women wrestling, how much  would they pay to see something  more unusual? (Rev. Swaggert  paid $50 US to watch pornographic acts.)  Obviously there is a top end  to this. No one would give a  plugged nickel to see the truly  taboo - sex education in high  school.  But to give credit where it's  due, the organizers wisely  refrained from looking for support dollars from the women of  our area, guessing correctly that  few would give to a sport where  two boys bash each other about  the head (presumably thinking  that part of the anatomy either  least sensitive or likely to be  damaged).  My niece, also in Tony's  class, is on the provincial  volleyball team. I'm positive  there are plenty of women here  that would pay big bucks to see  a man scrub out a toilet bowl.  But perhaps that would be in  poor taste.  Mara Beinarovics,  Pharmacist  Gibsons  4, UNDERWATER  C       SPECIALISTS  ���4 24 hr. Services  Operations Centrally Located  diving services ltd.

Our health care service and  the value of human life in our  community of Sechelt and area  is being undermined and sadly  neglected by the ferry service  and now the Air Ambulance  Service by the Health Ministry  and the powers that be.  We find this most disturbing  that the service is no longer  available to him or any other  citizens in need when time is of  the essence.

Seniors pensions are not  uniform from province to province in Canada which causes  financial hardship.  Mary Hamar  Joan's  message  Editor:  Although my friend, Joan  Warn, is beginning to feel like  her old self again, she is concerned because she has not yet  been able to say her personal  thanks to many of her late husband, Jack's, and her own,  friends.  Joan is off to spend a little  time with her sister and in the  interim, before her return, she  has asked me to express her  gratitude to those who have in  lieu of flowers, so generously  supported Jack's special interests.  We wish Joan a peaceful and  regenerating visit and will shortly welcome her home to Gibsons.

It will still take place at Chatelech Secondary School, commencing at  7:00 p.m.  Between March 15th and May 1st, the School Board has the opportunity to completely review the original budget which has to be submitted by March 15th. The  budget can be reduced but it cannot be increased. Therefore, even though the  original budget has already been submitted to the Ministry of Education, there is  still a meaningful opportunity for public discussion and Input re budget priorities,  budget levels and tax rates. The budget Is not irrevocably set until the May 1st  resubmission.  The Board had originally Intended to do this before the original budget even went  to the Ministry, but the massive revisions in the fiscal framework, which were only  provided to school boards on March 1st, meant that the Board will still be going  through its budgeting process right up until the submission deadline.  Putting back the meeting until April 14th will give the Board ample opportunity to  pre-circulate budget Information and statistics prior to the public meeting.  R.

For those of you who are not  entirely familiar with the  Regional Council, it is the vehicle by which the three branches  on the Sunshine Coast get  together semi-annually (April  and October) to compare notes  and activities, and to discuss  problems or situations which  are a common factor of the  branches. Our concerns, if any,  are then presented to the provincial body for whatever action  is necessary by the chairperson.  These meetings are usually informative. It is hoped that a  good representation of our  membership will plan to attend  and learn more about the inner  working of our "sister branches" as well as our own.  Lunch will be served upon arrival of the participants from  Madeira Park and Sechelt, by  the ladies of the hosting Powell  River branch. Past experience  suggests catching the 10:30 am  ferry out of Earls Cove and  returning on either the 3:30 pm  or 5:30 pm out of Saltery Bay.  Cars will likelv be pooled and  all our members are eligible to  attend, if they wish.  To assist ihe Powell River  ladies who will cater the lunch,  all those planning lo attend  should phone either Adele de  Lange at 885-2545 or Mike  Timms at 885-9249, at least a  week before departure.

Breakaway  offers solutions  by Rose Nicholson  "1 am an alcoholic and a  drug addict." These words  from a Sunshine Coast teenager  brought home Ihe reality of the  alcohol and drug abuse problem  that exists in our local communities. At a recent meeting at  Chatelech High School, Principal Brian Butcher said "We  have a serious problem. Let's  not waste time talking about  what caused it. Let's deal with  it."  The meeling had been called  to discuss the Breakaway Drug  Abuse Program. BDAS is a  non-profit organization made  up of young people and adults  whose lives have become unmanageable due lo the effects of  substance abuse. It is a spiritually based, though nol religious,  program built on twelve steps to  recovery.  Guests al Ihe meeting were an  Abbotsford couple whose son  became an alcoholic at twelve  and a half, a counsellor who  described herself as a recovered  bul not cured addicl and two  teenagers who described what it  was like to live in ihe bizarre  world of Ihe alcoholic/addict.  For over an hour and a half  more lhan 30 Sunshine Coasl  adults listened lo these people  talk about Ihe reality of the problem.  The Abbotsford father recounted their experiences. "We  were an average family. I'm a  high school teacher and I'm  supposed lo know aboul kids,  bul when my son began lo drink  and use drugs, nothing in my  training or experience was any  help. We tried Toughlove and  AA but they didn't work." He  went on to describe Ihe agonizing years of trying to live with a  son who was never sober, the lying, ihe stealing, the nighis  when they never slept more lhan  two hours, always fearfully  listening for the wail of an ambulance or police siren, the  times when their son disappeared for four or five days al a  time, and finally that parents'  nightmare, the lime when their  son landed in jail.  Al eighteen a doctor told,  Iheir son that he had Ihe liver of  a 50 year old man who had been  drinking for several years. If he  continued as he was doing, he  mighl have about two and a  half years left.  The mother described herself  as a 'professional mother'. "All  1 ever wanted was to be a good  mother. My identity was lied io  the success of my kids. I  devoted myself to my family.  When these things started to  happen I lost my sense of self-  worth." She described how she  gradually withdrew from life.  She stopped seeing friends, she  seldom went out, she cried for  days at a time.  "Nobody believed us. We  talked to doctors, social  workers, psychiatrists,  counsellors and the police. They  all said our son couldn't be an  alcoholic. He was too young"  The pressure of dealing with  the situation resulted in a  gradual deterioration of the  family unit. Nerves frayed raw  by the tension caused frequent  quarrels. Health suffered. Their  teenage daughter over-  compensated by becoming compulsively neat, driving herself to  excell at school and frequently  locking herself in her room.  This went on for a year, a year  which she cannot remember.  The teenage boy talked about  ihe relief that alcohol and drugs  offered from the pressures of  adolescence. "My family life  was good. My parents never  abused or beat me or anything  like that. I was a Grade A student but I was always unsure of  myself. I was on the honour  role, but I don't remember a  whole year. I lied to everyone,  especially myself. When I got  high it was great. All my feelings were wiped out. I had  friends and we seemed to be  close. I wasn't afraid. I didn't  believe I had a problem. It  wasn't till my marks slipped in  Grade 12 that I began to realize  that something was wrong."  A teenage girl talked about  getting pregnant at fifteen and  dropping out of school.  The counsellor explained why  recovered addicts make good  counsellors. "Nobody else  knows what it is like. We know  that we have a disease for which  there is no known cure. There is  something in the chemical  makeup of our bodies that will  always react to alcohol or  drugs. Our choices are total  abstention or early death." She  went on to say that the problem  has three components, physical,  mental and spiritual, and all  must be considered.  In response to a question  from the audience about AA,  the counsellor replied, "AA is  for adults. 1 went to a meeling  once and it was boring. They  were talking about lost jobs,  divorces and skid row. 1  couldn't relate. Breakaway is  based on AA, bul adapled lo  leens."  Breakaway also offers group  discussion and counselling lo  parents. Il is free to all participants, but parents are urged,  though not required, to contribute to the support of iheir  local cenlre.

NEST LEWIS  ;m by Item, We do more for you in providing Quality & Friendly Service Coast News, March 7,1988  LEISURE  Pncjes From A Lite Loy  Countryside Concerts  Viola proves  its worth  In Jo Hammond  I have often found ii a problem to come to grips with tlit  viola us a solo instrument, pro-  bably because there arc very lew  works written for solo viola,  tnd also because there are lew  excellent viola players around.  Ki\ka Golani is not only cv  rellent, she satisfies all of the  demands I would plaee on a  viola player and leaves me  wondering why there weren't  more solo works written for  thai instrumenl in Ihe classical  aid romantic eras.  At the Twilighi Theatre last  Sunday. February 28, Rivka  Golani, viola and Kum-Sing  I ee, piano, gave a joint recital  beginning with Apres In Reve,  which was originally written b>  Fauve as a song. This was an excellent opening, which sel the  lone for the resl of the concert,  showing the viola's warm,  relaxing, mellifluous tones  which were wonderfully  brought oul amidst Miss  Golani's beautiful phrasing.  Ii was seductive playing and I  was totally won over. Kuni-Sinj;  Lee's subtle but sonorous accompaniment on the nine fool  Baldwin added lo Ihe effect and  we were left wauling more.  Ihe romantic mood continued with the only group ol  piano solos. The oil heard  Bach' Hess Jesu, Joy Of Man's  Desiring was refreshingly played  with more rubalo lhan I have  lieard before.  The iwo oilier pieces were a  Brahms Intermezzo, and a  Giopin Nocturne which I par-  icularly enjoyed in spile of a  lack of tone in pari of the piano  range. Mr. lee plays with  economy of movement and nev-  ���r wastes a note,  Ihe Brahms Sonata Op. 120  wilh ils sunny opening, broughl  ihe artists logelher again very  successfully, wilh a subtle mix  of delicate interwoven phrases,  each partner yielding lo Ihe  olher in places and later on  combining lo produce some rich  sounds.  While on the subject of partnering wiih a pianist, I would  have preferred ihe violisi io  have slood in die curve of Ihe  piano, as would a singer. Bul  pel haps ihere were reasons...  The Schubert 'Arpeggione'  Sonata which followed intermission, was to me, a revelation. 1 have heard il many limes  on Ihe cello, lo ils delrimeni,  and I now feel lhal Ihe viola is  ihe ideal instrument for Ihis  piece today II combines bolh  rich sonority with ihe lightness  needed and Miss Golani utilized  ihese characteristics fully. Both  players gave a very refreshing  interpretation, and one I won't  forget,  The primed program ended  wilh two Hungarian dances by  Brahms, which couldn't have  been played beller. There were  two encores, one a lively vir-  luosiic polka by Mussorgsky,  and then the well known lilting  I ii'hslied by Kreisler.  Alter the concert, ihe artists  admired ihe accoustics of Ihe  hall, and lold me lhal Ihey particularly enjoyed playing lo such  a warm and receptive audience,  (clapping between movemenls  of Ihe Brahms didn't bother  ihem). Apparently al limes Ihey  have played lo some prelty cool  customers, although I couldn't  see how anyone who loved  music could fail lo be affected  by such a performance.  A superb aflernoon.

S7.00 at B & D Sports. Sunnycrest Mall  or phone M5-7243 or MS-3851  by Peter Trower  Interviewing Mancuso was an  experience in itself. He is an extremely intense character with  wide-ranging interests and opinions. His talk is highly charged  and vivid. We had agreed on a  non-chronological approach  and the conversation skipped  back and forth through time. It  was fascinating stuff but  sometimes Nick got so far off  on tangents that I was obliged  lo politely prod him back on  track. By the time we finished  the initial session, I had almost  two hours of excellent material.  Barbara wanted lo eat so we  headed for an Italian restaurant  on Robson Street, picking up  Yvonne (who was doing research al the public library),  along the way. During the meal,  Nick invited us bolh lo the  Stingray sel Ihe following Monday lo see how the show was put  logelher.  Monday rolled around.  Yvonne's daughler, Sandi, who  leaches drama, was in lown al  Ihe lime, so we took her along  too.  The shoot was taking place  on an obscure North Vancouver  back road just above Capilano  College. The sel was shut down  for lunch when we arrived. I  was amazed by the size of the  crew. There were seven or eight  large vehicles and at least 60  people. It looked more like Ihe  set of a major film lhan a TV  series. Cannell Productions obviously didn't pinch pennies.  One of Ihe crew members  directed us lo Ihe slar trailer  where Nick and Barbara were  grabbing a bit of privacy between lakes. Nick was taking a  nap so we chatted wilh Barbara  until he woke up. He seemed  happy lo see us and wanted lo  continue ihe interview. I clicked  on the recorder and we got inlo  some of the more esoteric  aspects of film making.  Soon, Ihe director banged on  ihe door and announced lhat  Ihey were just about ready to  roll again. Nick changed into  the black jeans and black  leather jacket of his Stingray  character. He wanted to keep  talking so I followed him and  Barbara lo Ihe makeup truck  and we continued our conversation unlil il was time lo go.  We followed Nick and Ihe  others along a private driveway  lo ihe set, an old homesiead  ihey had rented for the purpose.  This particular script involved  feuding pol farmers in northern  California and I was amazed lo  see whal appeared lo be a clump  of very healthy looking marijuana plants. On closer examination, however, they proved to be only realistic plastic  replicas.  Baroque  last in  concert  series  The Taflemusik Baroque Orchestra concludes Countryside  Concerts' 1987/1988 at the  Twilight Thealre Sunday,  March 13. The concert starts at  2 pm, and tickets are still  available. Call 886-2513 for  details or purchase at the door  from 1:30 pm on concert day.  Among Ihe selections will be  an oboe concerto by Handel, a  concerto for Iwo violins by  Vivaldi, and a cantata by Bach.  The music is performed on instruments of the period, and the  orchestra features harpsichord,  ten stringed instruments, and an  oboe and baritone singer as  soloists.  At the Regensberg festival of  early music last year,  Taflemusik drew ecstatic  notices. "A new level of baroque interpretation," wrote  Robert Strobl in Altc Musik  Aktuell, July/August 1987.  "What a world class  orchestra."  "Taflemusik makes entirely  new discoveries in the music,"  wrote Jan Jacoby in Politiken  (Copenhagen) June 19, 1987.  "Superb."  c ii9j'  /)<ii��n  886-2425  The cameras and props were  already set up. Nick and the  other players began blocking  oul a crucial scene. Barbara  (playing a country singer whose  father was involved with the pol  growers) had been kidnapped  by them and the enigmatic  Stingray has come to her rescue.  Nick, totally into the role now,  radiated cool menace as the  mysterious trouble shooter.  They moved through numerous  versions of the same scene, trying out different bits of business  lo heighten the suspense. There  was a brief altercation between  Nick and the stunt coordinator.  Periodic rain hampered the proceedings. Go-fers provided umbrellas for the actors till the  showers lei up. After a couple  of hours, the director decided  ihey had enough good film in  Ihe cameras lo edit down inlo a  finished print.  The weather didn't show  much sign of improving and  since I had more lhan enough  tape on Nick for a solid article,  Yvonne, Sandi and myself  elected to head for home at this  point.  Back in Gibsons 1 broke  down the tapes and began to  rough out a story. Then, quite  unexpectedly, the Stingray  series was cancelled. This ralher  pul the kibosh on the whole  operation since 1 had planned lo  use the show as a focal point.  The factor of timeliness had  suddenly evaporated. Disappointedly, I consigned Ihe project to the back burner and went  on to other matters.  Recently, I dug the Mancuso  material out again. Most of  Nick's comments, excepting the  Stingray references, had not  dated in Ihe slightest. They  painl an honest picture of a  working actor's life and times,  studded with trenchant anecdotes about many key people in  the business. I decided lo recrafl  and update the piece with a  suitable postscript and I present  it here for the first time.  ,     To be conlinued...  63 RAMBLERS  #1% Sptekl Gutsts  MARCH 12  9- 1  Roberts Creek Hall  $6 in advance   $7 at door  Tickets at Seaview Market & Coast News, Sechelt  ��� no minors please ���  Volunteer Action Centre 885-5881  Custom Framing  SALE  ���Ends Mar. 19  All Materials  In Stock  - Needlework Stretching  - Oval or Circle Mats  cut to size  - Dry Mounting  Show Pieces  ���Oafwf f .Ma...     280 Gower Pt.

He awaits the arrival of two of  his women from the past to  discover what life has been like  for the fifteen years of his seclusion.  It is exciting to see the Driftwood Players take on such  challenging material and even  more so to see them bring it off  with such success.  Much credit must go to  Director Jay Pomfret for this  splendid addition io the  theatrical memories of the Sunshine Coasl. Last year Pomfret  made his directorial debul with  the highly appreciated production of Bus Stop and he added  lo his laurels with this production. His fresh directorial  energy and perspective is a considerable enrichment to the  cultural life of Ihe Coast.  He was aided immeasurably  in his efforts by the quite splendid work of newcomer Ken Sal-  mond as the aged and irascible  eccentric. The pari of Henry  Hackamore is the kind of role  lhal positively demands a tour  i de force performance if the actor   is   not   going   to   fall  'desperately short and Salmond  'gave a suslained and convincing  performance   notable   for   its  consistent high quality and exquisite sense of comic liming.  Well done, indeed, sir.  Pomfrel himself played the  menacing bodyguard Raul and  assured us lhat his two-year  absence from ihe stage has done  nothing lo diminish his com-  mandingly physical stage  presence.  Alice AJbrechl and newcomer  Alison Macpherson did nobly as  Ihe ladies called from ihe past  and together gave the second act  one of Ihe best second act openings 1 have ever seen.  And oh what a dimension of  magic and delight does live  music bring! The Sunshine  Coast is rich and alive with  musical talent and the contribution made by the talented group  who supported the cast and  director of Seduced was the  splendid icing on a memorable  cake.  Special kudos must go to the  construction crew who once  again wrestled thousands of  pounds of risers and chairs into  place to make a brief theatrical  space. No one who hasn't actually lugged ihe makings into  place in one or olher of Ihe  Coast's halls can appreciate just  how much work is involved. Il  is an awesome and a daunting  lask and [hat people do it for  performance after performance  speaks volumes for their community spirit.  The large crowds who saw  one of the performances will  agree with me, who saw it twice,  thai this is a production which  must be staged again, perhaps  as part of the Summer Play  Parade if nol before. Hats off  to the director and cast. You set  yourself a considerable  challenge and pulled il off with  elan.

Coast News, March 7,1988  Letters to the Editor  Late French Immersion still seen possible  Editor:  Since Ihe successful establishment of the Early French Immersion Program at Gibsons  and Sechelt in September 1986,  there has been an increased  awareness and understanding of  Ihe advantages and importance  of such a program. The second  year of the program saw an increase in Ihe Grade one enrollment compared to the previous  year. Once parents could see Ihe  program was in place and successful, Ihey showed iheir in-  leresl and commitment with increased support,  Many parents of Grade 3, 4  and 5 students now wish lhal  the French Immersion Program  had been initiated 3 years earlier  in ihis school dislricl so lhal  Iheir children could have  entered the program in Grade I.  If you are one of ihese parents,  ii is still nol too late for your  child to enter the French Im  mersion Program in ihis school  district.  If you are a parent of a Grade  5 student [his year, this is the  crucial lime for you and your  child lo show your support for  the implementation of the Lale  French Immercison Program  lor September 1988.  A letter from each child, and  iheir parents, stating their  strong desire for, and commitment lo, a Late French Immersion Program al Gibsons School  in September 1988, is needed.  We can then request ihe issue be  placed on Ihe agenda for further  discussion al the School Board  Meeling on Tuesday, March 22,  al ihe Board Office in Gibsons.  The decision lo do anolher  survey to verify interest in a  Late Immersion Program in  September 1988, was only  defeated by Ihe narrow margin  of four to three againsl. Elected  officials do lake note and res-  Drug workshop  Editor:  Would you please inform  your readers of the following  workshop we are sponsoring.  Kids and Drugs. Facts - the  Gallup Youth Omnibus Study  done by ihe Canadian Gallup  Poll in' 1982 found thai ihe  average age for firsl use of  alcohol is 12 years; ihe average  age for firsl use of marijuana is  14 years; 81 per cent of 12 to 19  year olds have tried alcohol, one  in 10 of Ihese persons have had  problems related lo its use.  We are all concerned about  alcohol and drug use at some  point in our lives. We may  wonder 'Is my child using  drugs? How can I tell? Can I do  anything to prevent Ihis from  happening in my home?' Often  we feel helpless lo find answers  lo Ihese questions, Ihey seem so  complex. Pan of feeling better  aboul something is to learn  aboul il, lo become informed,  lo sorl through ihe issue and lo  get involved.  Continuing Education is  presenting a workshop entitled  'Kids and Drugs' which will  cover such lopics as drug use information, physical effects of  drugs, communicaling wilh  your child, developing personal  responsibility: an approach lo  discipline.  The workshop will be presented by David Coverdale, a  substance abuse counsellor and  pareni support group facilitator  who has many years experience  working wilh families.  The workshop is Friday,  March 18, 7:00 to 9:00 pm and  Saturday, March 19,9:00 am lo  4:00 pm al Ihe Dislricl Resource  Cenlre, Gibsons. Cost is $35 for  iwo days. Enrollment is limited.

Libraries starved for funding  Conlinued from page I  Margaret Long, (he area  representative of the BC  Library Trusiees Association  was presenl with additional information and food for  thought. She lold the meeting  lhat ihe provincial government  has a funding formula in place  which provides libraries  organized into a regional  system, through one office, a  tolal of $8.50 per sq. mile served.  < Unfortunately, there is currently a restriction in place  which makes this available only  to those systems which have a  join! population base of 75,(XXJ  or more. The geographical  layout of this area makes thai  an impossibility, she pointed  out.  On a more positive note, the  provincial government has  recently established a task force  lo look into Ihe needs of rural  ���libraries and Ihey have not yet  broughl in iheir final recommendations, Although ihe lask  force's interim report did not  include a recommendation for  change which would permit Ihis  area lo access the provincial  funds, she suggested lhal  political pressure could be  broughl, before ihe final reporl  is submitted, to have the  Library Aci changed. A provision could be made within the  funding criteria which would  allow Ihis area lo qualify.  Harold I ong was contacted  by Ihe Coast News lor his eom-  menls on Ihe situation. He explained lhal he was nol aware of  Ihe task force on libraries or  Iheir interim reporl, but suggested lhal if the libraries would  send him ihe information that  he needs, he would take up ihe  tiglil wilh Ihe Minisler of  Tourism, Recreation and  Culture who is responsible for  Library Services.  In ihe meantime, Aldermen  Mike Shanks of Sechell and  Gerry Dixon of Gibsons will be  taking the issue lo their respective councils. Ihe libraries have  made il clem lhal ihey cannot  continue to operate without improvements   in   ihe   funding  situation. The SCRD has staled  emphatically thai the  municipalities need to be a pari  of any library function that is  established on a regional basis.  To date, Ihe irack record of  the Iwo councils has been bad  enough Io cause Alderman  Mike Shanks to blush when the  statistics were read out at the  meeting. Sechell shows the  lowest per capita funding level  by any municipality in the province. In 1986 Sechell subsidized ihe library ai a rale of $2.55  per capita wilh a population  base of 1100. With restructuring, the population jumped to  5000 and ihe per capita rate  dropped dramatically.  Gibsons' record is only slightly belter, funding their library at  approximately $3.00 per capita.  Neither rale is very impressive  when compared to Fort Nelson  which pays $20.41 per capita, or  even Hazellon, al ihe lower end  of Ihe scale, which contributes  $6.88 per capita.  On the road with Tyson  Continued from page 1  The success of 'Cowboyography' is due, in large part, lo  the production and musical  skills of a young man from Edmonton, Adrian Chornowol.  Adrian produced and arranged  ihe music on the album, and  was Ihe bandleader for the tour.  I had never heard him play outside the context of Tyson's  music, unlil one night al ihe Bir-  Chmere in Alexandria, Virginia,  when Ian needed a break io rest  his voice and asked Adrian lo  do a solo on ihe grand piano the  club had provided for our show.  His solo was stunning, and Ihe  next nighl Tyson featured him  and we all left the stage.  Chornowol and Tyson met  while working on the Edmonton based 'Sun Country' television shows, and the meeting has  proved lo be a propitious one in  the light of the success of this  album.  Currently, the two are collaborating on projects for Ihe  Calgary Olympics. One is a  song being produced at the request of one of Ihe event's sponsors, a Tyson composition called 'On The Mounlainlop',  which could turn into a monster  single if il is released to the  public. Tyson is also re-  recording   the   classic   'Four  Strong Winds' for ihe Olympics  and ii may turn up on a new  album.  Whatever direction Ian Tyson lakes with his music, it is  clear thai he has found a place  in Canadian history and has  given the world a glimpse of the  ways of ihe wild west through  his modern-day balladeering.

Originally, Elphie's manager  John Kavanagh, applied for  expanded sealing, which Ihey  could have if the parking was  available.  The council gave their approval on the understanding  that Ihere was sufficient parking. Pan of ihai understanding  was that, because of Ihe mulli-  ple use of the complex, ihere  could be shared use of the parking. Daytime businesses, such as  a planned denial clinic could  share Iheir parking al nighl with  Elphie's. There are provisions in  the lown bylaws for this type of  arrangement.  Then the landlords,  represented by .lohn DeKleer,  showed up and lold council thai  Elphie's did nol have sufficient  parking because ihey were in  conlrol of parking and Elphie's  had all Ihey were allowed.

Custance maintains lhal no,  decision lias been made yet,  about the location of the consolidated offices.  Gordon Wilson, Leader of  the British Columbia liberal  Parly and Sunshine Coast resident, has expressed serious concern met Ihe reporls lhal Ihe  Powell River and Sechell Foresl  Dislricl will be merged, In a  press release Wilson said thai he  will request finest Minisler  David Parker lo provide  statistical evidence lo illustrate  thai this action will mean beller  foresl managemeni.  "There is no demonstrable  evidence lo suggest thai ihis  move will do anything oilier  than reduce Ihe number of  employees," said Wilson. "I  am really concerned aboul Ihe  lack of access that local  residents will now have to senior  Forestry personnel."  Wilson suggested lhal the loss  of B.C. Telephone, downsizing  of B.C. Hydro, Ihe move lo  Vancouvei of Ihe B.C. Assess-  ineni Authority, the potential  loss of highway maintenance to  Noil h Vancouver through  privatization are all signs thai  the government's commitmeni  I0 decentralization and local access to governmenl is nothing  mine than a farce.  Wilson is expected lo seek  clarification ol ihe long lerm  managemeni plan in a meeling  lhal he will be requesting with  Ihe Minisier of Forests and  I anils.

We are sorry bin due to manpower shortage and requirements for personnel to  help manage Ihe herring fishery,  ihis office will temporarily be  closed. In case of emergency  call Gibsons or Sechell RCMP  or in Vancouver 754-0235 or  Victoria I-800-663-9453."  In olher words, while the herring  run  is  on,   ihere  is  no  fisheries officer on the Sunshine  Coasl. The Coast News contacted MP Ray Skelly, who has  brought the problem lo the al-  tenlion of fisheries Minisler  Tom Siddon, but at press lime  Siddon had nol responded lo his  inquiries.  "It's totally insane," Skelly  said in an Interview. "You have  one of the largest home pons  for ihe commercial fisheries on  the Coasl, major sports fishing,  a major aquaculture industry.  There oughl to be a major  dislricl office in here just to  look afler that stuff."
