Siddon announces gas pipeline  by John Burnside  Oceans and Fisheries Minister Tom Siddon arrived in Sechelt last  Friday onboard a Thunderbird Air plane piloted by Rod Clayard.  On hand to greet him were Myrtle Prioux, Avona Clayton, Don  and Joan Gallop, and Lori Dixon. -Vera Elliott photo  The Minister of Oceans and  Fisheries in the Federal Cabinet,  the Honourable Tom Siddon  flew into Sechelt last Friday  with a pre-election good news  announcement that caused  alarmed concern in one segment  of the Sunshine Coast.  The cabinet minister was announcing an agreement in principle reached between the  governments of Canada and  British Columbia to build the  long-awaited natural gas  pipeline from Coquitlam to  Vancouver Island via  Squamish, Woodfibre, Port  Mellon, Sechelt, then by way of  Texada Island to Courtenay.  The map of the proposed  route, below, shows a branch or  spur line from Texada Island to  Powell River but there is no  such branch line shown from  Port Mellon to Gibsons.  Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce President D'Arcy Burk was present  at the hastily called press conference last Friday and was  quick to question the lack of a  connection to Gibsons.  His announcement of an agreement in principle on the proposed natural gas pipeline to Vancouver  Island caused some concern for Gibsons Chamber of Commerce President D'Arcy Burk (left) pictured  here with the Minister and Gibsons Town Planner Rob Buchan (see adjacent story).       ���Vera Elliott photo  Port Mellon development  Hughes outlines project  by John Burnside  President of Howe Sound  Pulp Bill Hughes took time out  from a hectic schedule to bring  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce up to date on the  changes taking place at Port  Mellon. Hughes spoke to the  Chamber at a dinner meeting  held at Andy's Restaurant in  Gibsons last week.  Hughes began his address by  reminding Chamber members  thai he was no stranger to the  Gibsons and District Chamber,  having been a member while he  was Ihe manager of Canadian  Forest Products' Port Mellon  mill from the mid-70's to Ihe  early 80's. He then outlined  how the amalgamation of the  Port Mellon facilities into a  joint venture enterprise between  Oji Paper Company of Japan  and Canfor came about, how  the new company, Howe Sound  Pulp, proposed to deal with environmental problems, and  what impact on the communities of the Sunshine Coast  could be expected.  ��� Hughes sketched briefly the  improvements that had been  made in the Port Mellon mill  between 1973 and 1983.  "We were bringing an old  facility up to date where and  when we could, but a lot of little  decisions do not add up to a big  decision," the Howe Sound  Pulp president told the  Chamber members.  "Then, beginning in  1983,  the strength of the Japanese yen  began to make joint ventures  with the Japanese an economic  feasibility."  Hughes outlined for the  Chamber members some of the  proposals which Canfor received for joint venture activities in  the mid-80's, none of which  seemed exactly to fit the company's needs.  "Then Oji Paper Company  of Japan approached us. They  operate the largest newsprint  mill in the world in Japan. They  proposed coming in with us in  an integrated pulp and  newsprint mill and it seemed a  most attractive possibility."  According to Hughes, the  negotiations with Oji began in  August, 1987, with technical,  legal and environmental committees being struck. Hughes  himself served on the technical  committee.  What came out of the  negotiations was a 50/50 partnership split with Canfor providing the facilities at Port  Mellon plus the West Coast  Cellulose operation on the  Fraser River and Oji putting up  cash.  "What we have right now,"  said Hughes, "is a situation in  which we have no debt and $300  million in the bank."  Hughes told the meeting that  it was planned that there would  be a 1000 ton daily market kraft  mill and a 630 ton daily  newsprint mill on the site with  the  possibility  of  a  second  newsprint mill if the market  conditions warranted it.  "A recent change calls for the  installation of two turbo  generators capable of generating 80 megawatts of power.  B.C. Hydro's attitude has  changed and they will now buy  surplus power that we cannot  use. The additional $95 million  for the generators boosts the  total cost of the projeel to $910  million.  The president of Howe  Sound Pulp stressed the  seriousness wilh which ihe new  company was addressing environmental concerns in its  plans.  "Every technology which can  modify the impact of the operation on the environment has  been included in this projeel,"  said Hughes. "In response to  enlightened and informed environmental concerns, things  have changed a great deal in our  industry in the past 10 years."  Hughes noted that the  Swedes were setting the pace in  modifying the effects of pulp  and paper mills in the environment and that the management  of Howe Sound Pulp was keeping in touch on a regular basis  with the very latest modifications which would ease the impact on the environment, citing  steps which reduce the formations of dioxins in the bleaching  process.  He also observed that most  informed   environmentalists,  Please turn to page 4  "According to the map attached to the statement of principles," said Burk, "the proposed line bypasses the Town of  Gibsons and surrounding  district. What is planned for the  southern portion of the Sunshine Coast?"  The Minister of Fisheries and  Oceans replied that Gibsons  would be supplied by a branch  line which would be built by  private enterprise 'when the demand warranted'.  "Does that mean 10 or 15  years down the road?" asked  Burk.  "Probably," replied Siddon.  "It looks to me as though  Gibsons is the only municipality  on the entire line which is being  bypassed," said Burk.  "I don't know about that,"  replied the cabinet minister.  Later, in conversation with  the Coast News, the president  of the Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce expressed serious concern about the  lack of a connection for Gibsons and district.  "The economic development  of the Gibsons area is dead if we  aren't connected to that line,"  said Burk. "They're talking of  building it by 1990 and if  Sechelt has natural gas and Gibsons does not it will have the  same effect as when a highway  bypasses a town site by 10 or 15  miles. All light or secondary industry, all shopping centres, all  large residential developments  will be attracted to the best  energy source."  The Coast News contacted  Progressive   Conservative  -Mbhel Rabu, candidate for this  /iding   in   the   forthcoming  federal election.  Rabu expressed regret that a  transportation mix-up had  prevented him from accompanying Minister Siddon on his  visit to the Sunshine Coast.  In Egmont  "It is my understanding,"  said the PC candidate, "that the  pipeline is to service all communities on the Sunshine Coast.  A representative of West Coast  Transmission has assured me  that branch lines will be built as  soon as possible to serve all  communities. It is in the company's best interests to develop  as large a market as possible as  soon as possible."  The Progressive Conservation candidate said that he  would be 'extremely surprised'  if he was unable to convince  West Coast Transmission that a  connector line to Gibsons and  district particularly since, as was  pointed out by the Coast News,  almost two-thirds of the  population   of   the   Sunshine  Coast live south and east of  Sechelt.  "I promise you that I will  keep in touch on this," said  Rabu. "In the meantime the  Chamber of Commerce and the  municipality and perhaps the  regional district should provide  me with as many details  about the number of households affected if Gibsons and  District is not connected. It will  be needed ammunition in my  representations to West Coast  Transmission."  Burk, who also served on the  Gibsons Economic Strategy  Committee, said that he had  asked that the entire next  meeting of the committee would  be given over to the question of  the natural gas pipeline link-up.  CAMPBELL  RIVER  MA  Prompt volunteers  control firespread  Last Monday in Egmont a  fire destroyed the home of  prawn fisherman Steve  Leander, only a few months  after he purchased it and only a  couple of weeks after he and  Patty Reid moved all of their  belongings into it.  The fire was caused by an explosion of tar about 1:30 pm,  that dripped into a burning  woodstove while Leander was  repairing the roof by the  stovepipe, and then the insured  house burned to the ground in  less than an hour.  Although four pumps were  obtained, none worked well  enough to supply an effective  quanitity  of water from the  saltwater source down the steep  bank from the house, so the efforts of the over 30 local  workers and residents who  quickly rallied to fight the fire  were in vain.  Egmont does not have a fire  department and the small community on the Sechelt Inlet near  the Jervis Inlet junction is well  beyond the jurisdiction of the  Pender Harbour Fire Protection  District.  The Department of Forestry  had a helicopter at the scene,  concerned that the fire might  spread into the nearby dry  forest, but the woods and a  nearby house, which Leander  and several other men hosed  down  throughout  the  blaze,  were not damaged.  There were no serious injuries in the fire, and while the  flames still burned in the rubble  that once was a house, residents  gathered under the smoke in  front of the Egmont Post Office  to organize assistance for  Leander and Reid,  demonstrating the big heart of a  small community.  A benefit potluck dinner will  be held at 6 pm on October I at  the Egmont Community Hall,  and both Betty Silvey of Egmont, and Bathgate's Store are  accepting donations for the couple.  Steve Leander ruefully surveys the ruins of his home destroyed in a recent fire in Egmont (see story  ibove). -Myrtle Winchester photo  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945 Coast News, September 26,1988  Comment  Tourist viewpoint  There is nothing in the letter with which we lead off this  week on Page 3, folks, that all of us who live here don't  know already but we recommend it to your attention  nonetheless.  The gentleman from Winnipeg who wrote it marshalled  briefly and cogently as well as we have ever seen it done the  evidences of disgraceful neglect that the Sunshine Coast  suffers at the hands of the provincial government.  Surely, with a government which extols the virtues of  tourism, no area in Canada of equal beauty and tourist  potential has been treated over the years so abysmally.  Read it and weep.  Met again, sir!  When Bill Hughes was the manager of Port Mellon a  few years back he, with clarity and precision, took issue  from the conservative stance with a certain local  newspaper editor of alleged radical bent.  It did one's heart good last Thursday to hear Mr.  Hughes extol the virtues of Sweden as a competitor in  marketing and a leader in environmental research. Credit  to ihe Social Democrats at last, Mr. Hughes?  5 YEARS AGO  Powell River environmentalists urge the Forest Use  Liaison Committee to press for the use of non-chemical  alternatives in forest management.  Regional Board Chairman Lorraine Goddard responded  to criticisms of the Doug Roy house-numbering system  made by planner Jim Johnstone at a recent planning  meeting by saying that if, as Johnstone insisted, the Board  was making a mistake in implementing the Roy system, it  was their right to do so.  Citing pressure of work, Barry Boulton resigns as the  chairman of the Gibsons Centennial Committee.  The Sechelt Indian Band raises two totem poles carved by master carver Arnold Jones in front of their new  Community Hall.  10 YEARS AGO  Local wrist wrestlers Craig Norris, Harry Kammerle,  Pierre Berdahl and Jim Peers distinguished themselves  at the International Arm Wrestling Invitational In Richmond recently. The local competitors won every division  they entered.  The Native Studies Environmental Studies project,  the first of its kind in the province, Is now in full operation with 10 white students from Grades 9,10 and 11 living at Deserted Bay in Jervis Inlet with two instructors.  15 YEARS AGO  Three hundred people attend a public meeting to  discuss re-bullding the burnt-out Elphinstone Secondary School. The discussion centres around whether It  should be replaced with one school or two with a second school possibly In Sechelt, Selma Park or Roberts  Creek.  Carl Bobart has moved to the Sunshine Coast to  become district manager of Coast Cablevision, replacing John Thomas who has been promoted and moved to  Delta.  20 YEARS AGO  A message from Queen Elizabeth Is received by  Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce on the occasion of its 21st anniversary.  Coast-Chilcotin MP Paul St. Pierre has introduced a  bill calling for absentee voting in federal elections to  enable voters to register a vote at a polling station while  away from home.  25 YEARS AGO  Gibsons new Twilight Theatre, designed by award-  winning architect Arthur Erickson, opens amid the skirl  of bagpipes with 100 visitors from as far away as Vancouver on hand to enjoy the initial screenings.  Governmental approval has been received by St.  Mary's Hospital Society for the conduction of a new  Hospital in Sechelt, architectural plans for which are  already completed.  30 YEARS AGO  Telephone conversations are now beamed between  Vancouver and Gibsons by a new VHF radio-telephone  system which went into operation this week. Landlines  connect the Gibsons radio terminal with other communities on the Sunshine Coast.  Mrs. Ada Dawe is elected historian of the Sechelt PTA  and assigned a new project - to compile a history of the  PTA.  35 YEARS AGO  Three Gibsons Commissioners met with George  Hopkins of Sechelt Motor Transport to consider the  possible location of a bus stop In Gibsons.  Harry Winn Is presented with an inscribed scroll at a  gala occasion which Instituted a Good Citizen of the  Year Award in Gibsons.  40 YEARS AGO  Union Steamships has announced that, effective immediately, passenger service to this area will be reduced to one trip per week, with a northbound trip on  Fridays.

ITLMkSTHE  SAME...  Maryanne's Viewpoint  Time to define 'progress'  We are talking about progress. I think we need to  redefine what we mean. Progress has meant to take all the  benefits of technology with little or no consideration for the  environment; that bigger is better, bigger highways, bigger  parking lots, bigger cars, bigger  shopping malls, bigger supermarkets with more and more  food wrapped in non-degrade-  able plastic, more out of season  fruit and vegetables, etc.  Progress has meant a con-,  sumed society which, when it  doesn't actively promote waste  on a grand scale, most certainly  tolerates it. A society which  believes that out of sight is 014  of mind and the devil take the  hindmost.  Nature abhors waste and over  the millenia has evolved many  sophisicated ways of dealing  with it; with microbes and  bacteria, fungi, maggots or  beetles, with symbiotic relationships, carefully balanced food  chains, and plants which recycle  unwanted gases, to name just a  few. Nature has wonderfully efficient cleansing systems, but  they can be overloaded.  In the past we've worked on  the Mad Hatter's Tea Party  whereby when we dirtied an  area we just move over and  bury our man-made toxic substances, but such sloppy  housekeeping is catching up  with us.  There was a news clip during  the summer which stayed in my  mind because it seemed  analogous to our environmental  situation.  It was during the Gulf War  and a small Iranian gunboat  ordered a Norwegian tanker to  stop. You could almost hear the  snort of derision as the  Norwegian captain explained  there was no way he could stop  his huge tanker on demand, it  would take a number of  nautical miles before it would  stop.  The world is like that tanker  isn't it? It's going to take us  time to change our attitudes,  our values and our priorities.  Meanwhile we're already past  the stage of being warned by a  small gunboat, those warnings  were paid some lip service but  generally ignored and now the  environment begins to exert  more pressure on us to change  or be changed.  That is the. power to change  our lives dramatically has been  shown this summer, drought in  some areas, torrential rain in  others, tornadoes creating  havoc around the globe. We live  in a fool's paradise if we think  this cannot or will not affect us.  This is where we need to redefine "progress". It is going to  have to mean planting two trees  or more for every one we cut  down. I read somewhere recently how many trees are needed to  recycle the gases from one car.  Progress is restocking our  rivers with salmon, making and  enforcing strict anti-pollution  laws on industry. Progress is  protecting all available  farmland.  Progress is re-cycling everything we can. Progress is tertiary sewage treatment plants.  Progress is the more efficient  use of energy, public transport  systems to discourage the use of  private cars to city centres. Pro  gress is an awareness of our impact on the environment upon  which we ultimately depend for  our survival.  The Sunshine Coast could  progress in recycling. We had  that opportunity because of the  foresight of our Regional Board  directors but we were too lazy  and self centred to make it  have been on the leading edge of      work. We'd better try again.  The Sun Rising  Busy old fool, unruly sun,  Why dost thou thus,  Through windows and through curtains call on us?  Must to thy motions lovers' seasons run?  Saucy, pedantic wretch, go chide  Late schoolboys and sour prentices,  Go tell court-huntsmen that the king will ride.  Call country ants to harvest offices;  Love, all alike, no seasons knows, nor clime,  Nor hours, days, months, which are the rags of time.  Thy beams so reverend and strong  Why shouldst thou think?  I could eclipse and cloud them with a wink  But that I would not lose her sight so long:  If her eyes have not blinded thine.  Look, and tomorrow late tell me.  Whether both th' India., of spice and mine  Be where thou left'st them, or lie here with me.  Ask for those kings whom thou saw'st yesterday,  And thou shall hear, all here in one bed lay.  She's all states, and all princes I;  Nothing else is.  Princes do but play us; compar'd to this,  All honor's mimic, all wealth alchemy.  Thou sun art half as happy as we,  In that the world's contracted thus;  Thine age asks ease, and since thy duties be  To warm the world, that's done in warming us.  Shine here to us, and thou art everywhere;  This bed thy center is, these walls thy sphere.  John Donne  In a nutshell  A non-imaginative writer?  by S. Nutter  Sometimes when talking  about or with writers, a name  will come up and someone will  say he is not an imaginative  writer. That is, this fellow is  strictly limited to the facts. He  has to go there and write it as it  is and that is the whole of his  scope. This we need of course  and its all very admirable, but  somehow I can get a bit of a  twinge.  Probably I'm thinking of my  old friend, Alekko Lilius.  Alekko was a Finnish writer,  well known to the Finns and to  readers of Argosy and other  magazines in the 20's, 30's and  40's. When I met him in Brock-  ville, Ontario, he was in front of  a fire with a bandaged foot up  on a hassock. He was bald,  black-bearded, fat, 60 and had  gout.  He had written a book called  I Lived With Chinese Pirates  and had pictures to prove it  (Terry and the Pirates was taken  from this book). Later he  discovered little tree-dwelling  people in the Philiipines, crossed the Kalahari in a Ford with  his daughter and a lion cub, lived in witches' kraals and etc. He  had to go there and write it as it  was. He was not possibly, he  always said, an imaginative  writer.  Somehow it got that we were  teamed up on a travelling  assignment, doing radio stories  for the International Service of  the CBC, on immigrants to  Canada from Eastern Europe  (Alekko knew the languages)  who were making their way. It  was '48 and these were being  beamed across the Iron Curtain  to give them a whiff of the opportunities rampant in our  golden land.  Alekko had driven the first  car into Lapland, an old Stutz  which of course he just wheeled  up over the muskeg, but it gave  him the thought that he was a  great international automobil-  ist. In fact he was a terrible  driver and I did most of that.  He sat beside, with an intent  and expert look, head cocked,  listening for knocks in the  engine. There were knocks in  the engine. This was a '39 Ford.  Another wrinkle was that  Alekko required, no doubt for  ritual reasons, an amount of  aquavit, the Finnish drink, as  the sun went down. Vou  couldn't get aquavit in Canada  at that time, so the trunk of the  car contained some gallons of  whisky blanc (alcohol), and  Alekko had been to an  'apothecary' in Montreal before  we left and got some vials of aged caraway seed oil, So  wherever we were, al however  dismal a motel, there'd be the  diurnal mixing of the two and  the sundown quaff.  In this way we came to Sudbury and took a cabin on Lake  MacFarlane (the lake reminded  him of Finland). He was immobilized again with gout, but  the extensive Finnish community, to whom he was a celebrity,  gave him all possible aid. They  looked up immigrants for him  and drove them out to be interviewed. I don't think I ever saw  any of these interviewees. I  would be off in the car chasing  my own leads and often, when I  came back, he would have  already finished typing his  story.  It was like this one day when  I came back from seeing a  Polish professor in a lumber  camp. Alekko was already mixing the brew. He handed me the  latest and I started to read.  He had become interested in  an island off in the lake, it said,  and I could see the island. There  was a rowboal on our shore  (there was). He had rowed oul  lo Ihe island. As he came closer  he became aware of an odd  ululation on the air. As he came  closer to the island he identified  the sound. It was the hooting of  hundreds of owls.  He rowed along, came to a  dock, went up a windy path,  and found a house. Two  women came out on the stoop.  "Hello", said one, "would you  like to buy a pair of owls?"  They were two old ladies from  Riga who had started an owl  farm. Most of their customers  were farmers who wanted to  keep down the mice in their  barns.  I gave Alekko a long look.  He carried on sipping his  aquavit and gazing serenely out  over the lake. By God, I  thought, I'll take the boat, go  out, and see if I see any owls.  He poured me an aquavit and  handed it over. Oh well, I  thought, oh well...  So maybe there's an owl farm  out there in the lake and maybe  not. At all events, Alekko, so  far as I know, all his days carried on unequivocally as a non-  imaginative writer.

Thanks alsc  Sunshine Coast through tourist's eye  Dear Sir,  I and my family were recent  visitors to B.C. We drove the  circle route, Vancouver, Sunshine Coast, Victoria, Vancouver. While the scenery was  very beautiful especially for a  Prairie dweller, travel was a  nightmare. We had over a four  wait for the ferry at Horseshoe  Bay in the sweltering heat. We  couldn't leave our car for fear  of losing our place in the lineup.  Why in heaven's name has  the B.C. government reduced  the Sunshine Coasl ferry service  from every hour, when I lasl  visited B.C., to once every two  hours, especially when the  popularity   of   the   Sunshine  Coast has improved dramatically?  The Langdale ferry terminal  was another disaster. Four lanes  of heavy traffic off the ferry  was herded into a single line in  the terminal and then into a  controlled intersection joining  logging traffic from Port  Mellon. It took us half an hour  just to get out of the terminal  and the ferry was delayed in the  pileup.  The Langdale terminal is a  disgrace. B.C. can afford better.  Then there was the so called  Coast Highway, a winding  country road with no shoulders  and no passing places. 1 am told  that this Highway No. 101 is the  only road on the Coast for the  very heavy tourist traffic, the  traffic of the rapidly growing  resident population and the  growing logging traffic. It is a  very scenic route but one can  hardly enjoy the scenery travelling at a crawl behind a monster  logging truck with 50 other cars  behind.  Highway 101 should be  designated the scenic route and  a new 4 lane highway built from  the ferry terminal at least to  Sechelt. I have to say that in my  two trips on the Coquihalla  Highway 1 saw far less traffic  than on Highway No. 101.  Lastly, I am puzzled by the  very heavy charges on the Sun  shine Coast ferry. Surelv the  Sunshine Coast is on the  mainland and has no road to  the south. In other provinces  mainland ferries are always free  if there is no alternative road.  These ferries are considered part  of the highway system. The  Sunshine Coast is not an island,  il is on the mainland. Pensioners like myself and I'm sure  residents must find these  charges very onerous.  The rest of our trip was  delightful and we hope that if  and when we visit B.C. again,  Ihese tourist disasters will have  been corrected.  Peler and Anne Hinchey  Winnipeg, Manitoba  Editor:  On Sunday, September 18,  forty-five people braved the  wind and the rain to participate  in the Sechelt Terry Fox Run.  Though the number of participants was low, the effort  they made lo raise money for  cancer research was impressive!  A total of over $1400 will go  toward this special cause as a  result of the Sechelt run.  1 wish to thank Shop-Easy  for donating the juice, and Sechelt Supermarket for the  oranges.  A number of people assisted  in the organization and the  operation of the run, they include Alice Stephen, George  and Janet Richey, and Lee  Brown, as well as my grade six  class at West Sechelt School for  the signs.

Dear Mr. Mulroney:  Where are the Conservatives?  Is anybody out there? Do they  know there's still life after  Quebec and Ontario? Do any of  them care that Canada Post is  still closing the rural post offices  and destroying our identities?  Do you care?  Mr. Turner and Mr. Broad-  benl   have   both   stated,   in  writing, they have no intention  of carrying on this practice of  rural post office bashing being  perpetrated by Canada Post.  Was the 'stick it in your left  ear' comment emanating from  your office, in answer to our  petitions, meant to be considered your official communique?  Does this latest 'epistle to the  plebians' arriving in the mail  from Mr. Landers of Canada  Post and sent at taxpayers' ex  pense, sound just a wee bit frantic to you? Are we, the rural  residents, getting our message  across? Does he, maybe, begin  to realize it is really very difficult to walk over a Canadian?  Might it not become even more  difficult when the person doing  the walking has a salary in the  range of $175,000 to $205,000  with a possible bonus of 25 percent? From stamps?  You may think with an election coming, that rural Cana  dians are all lied up in knots  worrying about the 'accord'  level at Meech Lake, or whether  the Americans will get anything  lo drink down there, like water,  but the votes are really hanging  right in there, Mr. Mulroney,  snuggled up to the Canadian  flags that are flying over our  small rural post offices.  I just thought you would all  like to know where to find  them.  Aline Journeay  Little Fort, B.C.  MORTGAGE UPDATE  Sept. ZZ 6 mo.  1yr.

'Tools for Peace' is a national  organization which collects  material goods to help Nicaragua counter the devastating effects of Reagan's Contra war  and the U.S. economic embargo.  Donations to the organization made in memory of Jack  Warn were matched and a cheque for $400 was .sent to the  'Tools for Peace' office in Vancouver.  It was decided that a fiesta  similar to those held in past  years at Roberts Creek Hall  should be planned again this  year. To make ihe event a family affair, it was suggested that  the Chilean children who danced recently at the Arts Centre  could be presented along with a  Latin dance band for later in the  evening.  The boal project, the Fishermen's Union (UFAW) sponsored construction of a fishing  vessel to be sent to Nicaragua, is  nearing completion and there  was consensus thai $300 should  be sent to help outfit the diesel  engine.  The plight of the 'disappeared'   in   Guatemala,   over  40,000 in recent years, can be  affected with strong international focus on these human  rights violations.

The  demonstration staged at the  Festival of Written Arts described on page one was merely an  annoyance.  The incident described later  (fish farm garbage) is a very  serious matter. Any floating  garbage poses a grave threat to  mariners and demonstrates a  blatant disregard for our environment.  I would urge all users of the  ocean and the foreshore to  refrain from dumping their  refuse on the world's doorstep.  This message is to all boaters,  loggers, fishermen and salmon  farmers.

Bul now somehow, the district wants the provincial  government to give MacBlo  some of our land so the dislrict  can give some of Cliff Gilker's  gift lo ihe people, to the golf  course.

I've only been here Ihree  years and it took me two to find  where Rat Portage Hill is. But  this article by Penny Fuller raised some questions in my mind.  First is Mrs. Gilker still with  us and if so has anyone seen fit  to ask her opinion?  Next is, who owns this golf  course and last, have I the only  mind that finds this trade  strange and lopsided?  There are some confusing  things happening under this  Social Credit government, so I  suppose a land trade could take  place without an exchange of  deeds.  Please tell me I'm wrong,  John.

"Once again, the Swedes are  setting the pace in this area,"  Hughes told the Chamber  piembers.  ��� Finally, the Howe Sound  Pulp president addressed questions of impact on the local  business community and cautioned Chamber members that,  while there would assuredly be  such an impact, it had undoubtedly been overstated in  some quarters. He noted that  most construction workers were  middle-aged men with families  who would return to Vancouver  every Thursday night and return  to the Coast on Sunday night.  "They will be working four  long days and, like most of us,  after dinner and having read the  paper they will be more likely to  get an early night than anything  else."  He said that any investment  decisions made by the local  business community based on  the expansion of the mill at Port  Mellon should be made with  caution.  In a question and answer  period after his address, Hughes  said that he was somewhat  skeptical about the natural gas  pipeline to Vancouver Island.  "Quite frankly we think it is  more political lhan economic.  We believe that the construction  costs are understated and the  projected demand is overstated.  They are going to have to amortize the costs of the pipeline and  while they may not hammer  residential or commercial  customers we feel lhat they are  likely to hammer industrial  users like ourselves. We'll have  to know what it's going to cost  us before we commit to its use."  In closing Hughes noted,,as  he had earlier In Sechelt, that  one of the changes which had  come to the Gibsons and  District Chamber of Commerce  since he was a member was the  high profile of woman members  which had not been the case 10  years ago.  Sechelt Chamber's  first fall meeting  The September general meeting of the Sechelt and District  Chamber of Commerce will be a luncheon meeting, to be  held at the Pebbles Restaurant on Tuesday, September 27.

Lorraine Goddard  COLLECTOR  Community airs concerns  by Jeanie Parker, 885-2163  Last Wednesday's Community Association meeting was informal but full of discussion,  ranging from the predicament  of the Preschool to the ever-  present propane tanks.  The Rainbow Preschool is in  a crisis situation. Their rent is  going up and they don't have  enough kids enrolled to pay the  teacher. They're looking for  new premises that will accommodate fifteen children at a  time and they need three and  four vear olds. Phone Allison  Payne at 885-5363.  the Provincial Government  now has the land for the tank  farm but doesn't seem to be doing anything for It, The  Association will send a letter to  the Ministry and urges  everybody to write M.L.A.  Harold Long asking for the  removal of the propane tanks  from the Roberts Creek wharf.  The proposed Golf Club expansion into part of Cliff Gilker  Park drew a lot of concern,  despite assurances that nothing  would happen withoul public  hearings. It was felt that the information being given to the  public aboul the negotiations  was inadequate and a factfinding committee was formed  to meet with Regional Board  Parks Chairman Stan Dixon  and report on their investigation  to an Association meeting in  October.  There have been several complaints aboul the on-going problem of drivers speeding down  the hill lo the Roberts Creek  Wharf. Anolher letter-writing  campaign was recommended.  Anyone concerned about the  danger should report it to the  RCMP and/or the Highways  Department.  Members of the community  were reminded of the impact  that a restructuring of Gibsons  to include the Port Mellon mill  would have on their taxes.  It was hoped that the bicycle  path being constructed from  Hall Road to the Provincial  Campsite would be a catalyst to  extend it from one end of the  Coast to the other.  And the Roberts Creek  library has received quite a shot  in the arm. After much correspondence the Provincial  Government has finally  recognized that there are considerably more than 600 people  living in Roberts Creek. The annual grant to the Library based  on population has been more  than quadrupled to over $5,000.  AUXILIARY NEWS  The last meeting of the  Roberts Creek Auxiliary was  followed by an informal luncheon to bid farewell and good  luck to Nick and Olive Nicolson  who are moving to the Fraser  Valley.

OCR LOSS  Long-time Roberts Creek  resident Ruth Marsh is leaving  Sechelt  rezoning  opposed  by Rose Nicholson  A move to rezone a six acre  parcel of land in West Sechelt  from single family lots lo multi-  family/trailer park use ran into  stiff opposition at a public hearing in Sechelt last Saturday.  The property, which lies between Mason Road and Wakefield Road and next to West  Sechelt Elementary' School, was  originally zoned for trailer  parks, and was changed to  single family designation when  the area was incorporated into  the district of Sechelt in 1986.  Area residents see the plan endangering the lifestyle of the  area and reducing property  values.  The present owners. Chuck  and Peggy Ayres, had a trailer  park on the property in the early  '70's and many members of the  audience testified to the well-  kept and quiet nature of the  park when the Ayres ran it.  However, the property changed  hands at least twice after thai  and conditions deteriorated  seriously.  The Ayres have been forced  to repossess the property and  claim that their proposed redevelopment will duplicate the  well-kept conditions that existed  before.  Residents claim that there is  no guarantee that the Ayres will  be able to run the proposed  park indefinitely and fear the  return to the previous unsatisfactory conditions.  Mrs. Christian, who has lived  close by for ten years, said lhat  after the Ayres left there was a  continuous problem with dogs,  noise and garbage. Paul Toy-  nebee, owner of the "Corner  Cupboard" declared, "We have  no righl to discriminate against  trailer park residents. A  development like that would be  an asset to this area."  Bob Adams of Wakefield  Road drew applause when he  stated, "I'm against downgrading of zoning. We bought  Please turn to page 13  us at the end of the month for  Larksville.

Sad, if true, but it was a great  sendoff!  by Shirley Hall, 883-1154  One of the frustrations I've  encountered in writing this column these past few months is  that sometimes ihere is nothing  to reporl. If Ihere are items of  gossip they're of the unprintable  type! However, this week that is  noi the problem since a great  deal has happened. Unfortunately, a number of items are  of ihe bad news category.  First of all, I'm sorry that  Dolly Wallace's sister, Dot  Silvey's mother, Agnes An-  dreulonis, died. Our sympathy  goes oul lo Dolly, Dot and the  rest of the family.  Secondly, there have been  two serious accidents. In the  first of these, a local driver ran  into a hydro pole and suffered a  broken nose. 1 didn't see the car  but it must have substained considerable damage because the  pole was broken. It is now  splinted together.  In the second accident, a  yoting motorcyclist ran off the  road and across Vi and Gene  Berntzen's lawn and down their  embankment. He was able to  walk away but required forty-  five stitches to his face. He  scared the life oul of Vi, who  thought he'd been killed.  Vi says, there was no helmet  in evidence. How these young  drivers can risk scrambling their  brains for the sake of feeling the  wind in their hair and showing  iheir independence is beyond  me.  Thirdly, Edna Howitt's car  has been stolen. She drove it  down to her son Greg's at Ruby  Lake where he was going to do  some repairs. Edna wailed to  get her car back and Greg  waited lo receive it. Apparently  it was stolen sometime between  when Edna delivered il and  Greg got home. There are  reports that it's been towed to  the Chevron station after being  ditched.  Last, but certainly not least,  ihere was a house fire in Egmont. The house belonging to  Steve Leander and Palti Reid  caught fire when Sieve was tarring the roof and was a total loss.  Luckily there was insurance but  Patti, Steve, and Steve's four  year old lost all their posessions.  A fund was started at once to  meet their immediate needs and  donations can be lefl with Betty  Silvey or at Bathgate's store.  It should be mentioned that,  when the fire look control, it  was obvious that Ihe house  couldn't be saved bul Doug  Silvey's house nexl door was in  danger. Over thirty people  responded to the emergency  with crews and/or pumps from  Aquarius and Egmont fish  plants, Bathgate's, Gordondale  Logging, Lafarge Cement, and  Egmonl Marina. All the locals  around at the time pitched in to  help also.  Egmont is the kind of community that rallies around when  help is needed. As soon as possible a special meeting of the Egmont Community Club executive was held. They decided  to hold a benefit potluck dinner  for Steve and Patti. It will be in  the community hall at 6:00 pm  on Saturday, October 1st. Admission is by donation to ihe  fund and, of course, food for  the dinner. Please make a note  of Ihis date and try to support  this event.  Now I'd like to report on  some of the happier news. First  of all, the report to me is that  the Egmont School reunion was  a great success and everyone  had a wonderful time. I hear  that people came from as far  away as Texas. I wasn't in attendance, not being one of the  "old school" crowd, so Iris  Griffith is submitting a separate  report for you in this paper.  However, I did attend the tea  held on Sunday under the  auspices of the Community  Club and ably convened by Vi  and Dolly. Despite the weather,  and it was a miserable cold  rainy day after a beautiful  Saturday, there was a wonderful turn-out and everyone seemed to be having a marvelous  time. The tea was beautifully  presented and the tables were  full of people reminiscing about  old times. One of ihese was  Phyllis Theriault, nee Dorman,  who, at age seventeen, spent her  first year teaching in Egmont.  She's now planning her retirement.  Last of all, have you noticed  all the parking thai the Martin's  have put in around Bathgate's  store? Talk about the new  broom, etc! II sure is an improvement.  This is my last week for  writing the Egmont News this  year. Other commitments prevent me continuing and Ann  Cook can't take over the column.

Rural residents are among  blind and sight-impaired people  on the mailing list of the John  Milton Society for the Blind.  'JMS' cassette tapes travel the  Rural Routes and a letter to the  Sociely recently read, "I played  (the tape) over Ihe phone to two  friends. The lape was then loaned to a friend who has the same  eye trouble as I have."  A recent cassette tape produced by the John Milton  Society for the Blind in Canada  brought the following response:  "A beautiful, beautiful tape.  Good music, good thoughls. I  have put some of this into  braille for myself, so I can use it  (to share with others)."  Besides cassetles, 'JMS' provides a bi-monthly large-print  magazine, a quarterly magazine  in braille, and a casselte  magazine as well as the services  of a lending library to the blind  and visually-impaired people.  All materials are free-upon-  requesl. Donations for 'JMS'  arc lax deductible. For more in  formation on the 'JMS' write to  202-40 St. Clair Avenue East,  Toronto, Ontario M4T IM9.

I only mention this because  on October 1, the Volunteer Action Centre is holding their Fall  Fair in Sechelt Elementary  school.  Even if you can't bring  yourselves to think about  Christmas and gift buying righl  now, with the leaves barely  lurncd to red and gold in the  trees, you may still wanl to  make a point of laking in the  fair. There will be arts and  crafts galore. There will also be  music and good food available.  GREENECOURT  I have been told lhal the new  addition to Greenecourt will be  officially   opened,   with   ap  propriate pomp and ceremony,  sometime in mid-October.  *M Clovelly Acres Tiffany,  Full Canadian Saanen  CS11974, won Grand Champion Saanen Doe and Best Udder in the Saanen class on  September 2 at Ihe PNE Dairy  Goat Show.

No-fault accident  by Jean Robinson, 885-2954  Gremlins attacked my column last week and so the accident to Nawin Philawan read  like it was his fault. That was  not my intention as I did not  know if anyone was at fault.  Sorry Nawin.  The gentleman who was the  car driver phoned lo say that his  sleepness nights and recurring  thoughts of what could have  happened are leaving him mentally devastated. Nawin has  recovered enough to return to  school.  The car driver involved, although held blameless, may  take years to recover. His plea is  lo be extra cautious when you  see children on that highway.  BRIDGE AT THE HAIX  Bridge starts at 1 pm on Oclober 14, at the Wilson Creek  Hall, 5123 Davis Bay Road. Everyone is welcome. There are  facilities for 8 to 10 tables this  year. Lei's see more men out.  Games continue on the second and fourth Fridays of each  month until March.  DINNER AND DANCE  On October 15, a Polluck  Dinner and Dance will start the  Fall Season of the Davis  Bay/Wilson Creek Community  Association.  The party is to honor those  people who have worked so  hard to complete the building  extension.  This is for members of the  Communily Association only  and others especially invited.  Also it is by invitation only, and  any member can obtain theirs  free by phoning me at the  number at the top of the column. Invitations are numbered  because there is a door prize.  WATER OUZEL  There were a pair of "Water  Ouzel" or "Dippers" that frequent the mouth of Chapman  Creek. These normally solitary  slate coloured birds can be seen  dipping up and down and searching for food in the fast  rushing water.  1 have seen water ouzel in  Porpoise Bay Park on several  occasions while walking up  beside Angus Creek around  salmon run time. However, by  pausing on the Chapman Creek  bridge on a morning, water  ouzels can be observed there as  well.  These little birds walk on the  bottom of streams in their  search for food.

Organizer Debbie Amaral  would like to thank everyone  who made the event such a great  success; the grades 11 and 12  PRSS students and parents who  supervised the run, the supporters who gave so generously,  and the kids who made the run.  PARENTS NIGHT  School bus owner/operator  Larry Curtis will be present at a  "parents night" meeting at the  Pender Harbour Senior Secondary on October 5 at 7:30 pm to  explain the current bus schedule  and answer questions about the  system.  All parents are invited to this  meeting, the first of the year,  and refreshments will be provided.  SENIOR'S NEWS  All Pender Harbour seniors  are invited to attend a general  meeting at Branch 80 of the  Senior Citizens Association at  7:30 pm on October 3 at the  Legion Hall.  Sechelt Seniors  On regional counci  by Larry Grafton  For those of our members  who may not be familiar with  this aspect of the workings of  our Senior's branches, our Sunshine Coast Regional Council  meets every six months to compare notes and to discuss  mutual benefits and problems.  The three branches concerned  are Powell River, Pender Harbour and our own Branch 69.  The meetings are held on a  revolving basis at each branch  location, and on October 12,  the host branch will be Pender  Harbour.  Normally, lunch is served  prior lo the meeting in order to  accommodate the Powell River  group which is governed by a  ferry schedule.  Members are encouraged to  participate in these meetings  and provide input of suggestions or problems.  John Miller is Chairman of  the Regional Council. Results  and recommendations of the  gathering will be conveyed to  the Executive of our Provincial  Branch by John, who is a  member of the Provincial Executive.  In this manner, any major  concerns of the Provincial Body  ���and whatever action is deemed  .necessary is acted upon.  If you are able to attend, you  should call John Miller at  885-7792 after 5 pm in order  that the catering for lunch can  be arranged with the host  branch.  POT LUCK SUPPER  Unfortunately I was unable  to attend the Pot Luck Supper  on September 17 in our hall, but  I am told it was a resounding  success with some sixty odd  members in attendance.  I am told also that some comment has been made that entertainment should have ben provided. This, of course, brings  up the situation where the instigator of the suggestion should  volunleer his or her services to  arrange some after dinner entertainment at future pot luck suppers (and I'm sure there will be  more in the future.)  Hindsight is great! Entertainment after dinner seems a good  idea. Any volunteers?  69ERS  On September 29 at 7 pm  your 69ers will again have the  pleasure of singing a few songs  for the residents at Shorncliffe.  You can bet there will be some  of the old-time favourites on the  program.  Members of the group should  be aware of the change of date  for our performance at Lynn  Manor in North Vancouver.  Our engagement is now  scheduled for 2 pm on October  19.  LATE BULLETINS  A Senior's bus tour to  Whistler Mountain has been arranged to leave the Royal Bank  at 7:20 am on October 5. Your  cost is $14.00 for the bus.  Phone May Widman at  885-5200 for reservations.  Senior's Bridge games will  start in our hall on October 15.

How  you look, what you say, and  how you say it add.up to produce an image.  Provincial Liberal Leader,  Gordon Wilson, was in Sechelt  and presented a new 'look'.  He's replaced his college professor image with a modified  MLA spiffiness.  Congrats, Gordon, for keeping the suit low key - blue  pinstripes would be inappropriate for the occasion and  cords would have been too  casual.  Political figures have expert  help in how to present an image  to the public, an image that will  bring them votes.  Ed Broadbent, Federal NDP  Leader, had a major overhaul a  few years back so he would look  more like a prime minister than  an NDP party leader.  Our prime minister ranks  amongst the world's best dressed men - that's only a part of  your image, however.  Here are a few pointers that  will put you in charge of the image you present to the world.  DRESS EFFECTIVELY.  Use sharp lines and details to  show how sharp you are. Or  select soft fabrics, colours, and  styles for effective communication. Be sure your garments  speak the same language you  do.  SAY WHAT YOU WANT  TO SAY CONCISELY. When  it's important that you have  your say, practice being precise  -think of it as a 30 second television spot.  BE APPROPRIATE. Speak  and dress like the people you are  with. Use 'buzz words' only  when in the company of those  'in the know'. Keep your  'serious' clothes for serious occasions (work, visits to your  banker, interviews). Wear your  sweats when you plan to.  BE AUTHENTIC. When  you look, speak, and feel the  part, you appear authentic to  your 'audience'. Do you think  Jim Bakker can pull off the  clean-living look?  fyMvit PtVujU,  Regular & Small Sizes  Just for you  ��� FASHIONS ��� YARN ��� FABRICS  ^\_Gibsons Landing    OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK   886-2470  George    in    Gibsons  Community attitude  is what's needed  by George Cooper, 886-8520  Although the skateboard  bowl on Park Road is used frequently by the youngsters, the  bowl itself and the adjacent  washroom has been abused, if  not frequently, then too often  for the community to tolerate.  The RCMP report mischief  done to the doors, dividers, and  paper holders of the washroom  on four occasions, usually at  night. Should this become the  way for other midnight prowlers to prove their prowess the  facilities there in Brothers  Park are indeed at hazard.  A spokeman for the  Skateboard Bowl committee  says, "Don't blame the bowl  for ihis behavior. We know of  bullying there by older youth  who seem to have nothing else  to do. The same thing has happened al Armours Beach in the  summer. There is a problem for  ihe whole community to face up  io."  Some years ago a washroom  at Georgia Beach built by a service club became the target of  youth who, bold in darkness  and then eventually at noon  breaks, steadily smashed  everything but the cement  blocks of the walls. This  brought no public outcry or  even a murmur of protest.  It would seem, this youthful  exuberance relieved their exasperations. But it exaspertaed  the public and the club that  built the facility. The response?  A shrug.  How can this eagerness to  cause damage be halted?  By fortifying the washroom  with steel doors at $1500  apiece? By more RCMP  patrols? Supervision by parents  of the community?  Whether the bullying and the  damage are associated can only  be guessed at. The young ones,  however, must be secure from  harassment while they play.  There is at present no firm community attitude in this regard.  An attitude certainly needs to  be taken that brooks no wanton  destroying of property nor of  the intimidating of young  children by older ruffians. An  idle hope perhaps?  GUESTS FROM  SOUTH AFRICA  Linda and Clifford Smith of  Anchor Road, Sechelt, have  had as their guests Clifford's  parents who now live in retirement in Durban, Natal.  Clifford's father, who says he  has always been called Jack,  retired in 1970 from a career of  teaching and education administration that took him to  tropical islands and to territories  in Africa.  Jack Smith attended Bristol  Grammar School. "It dates  back to Henry VIII. In 1932 I  attended the celebration of the  school's four hundredth anniversary.'"  Then in the University of  Bristol he took an honours  degree in the Classics (Latin and  Greek). "Then an interview for  a position on the staff of the  Royal College, a grammar or  secondary school, in Mauritius  came on my birthday. I felt it  was a good omen and it was."  From Mauritius, where Jack  met and married Renee, known  since childhood as Batcha (Little Girl), they went to Fiji.  There Jack was prinicpal of a  secondary boarding school that  enrolled native students from  many South Pacific islands as  far away as Papua, New  Guinea.  Later, postings to Africa  followed. The first to Nyasa-  land Protectorate which became  Malawi about 1963. "I became  ihe education officer or consultant to the new minister of  education after independence.  But only to advise when she  asked about the development of  secondary schools."  Jack Smith was then posted  to Bechuanaland Protectorate  to become in turn an education  advisor when the region became  the independent republic of  Botswana.  After retirement from the  colonial   service,   the   Smiths  went to South Africa intending  to visit for six months. But the  University of Durban offered  him part-time lecturing in Latin  and Greek and, except for a  short stay in Vernon in 1983,  the Smiths have remained in  Durban since.  "We have thought to settle in  Vernon but we found we had  lived in the tropics far too long  to make the change comfortably."  "The Sunshine Coast has so  many beautiful aspects, some of  the grandest scenery we've seen  in our wide travels," said Jack.  "We do see South Africa  from a perspective quite different from the one the news  gives here.  MISCELLANEOUS  Branch 109, Gibsons Legion,  now has two mobility carts for  use where most needed in our  community. The three-wheeled  carts are battery operated and  good for using in buildings or  on sidewalks.  There are also available at the  Branch walkers, crutches, and  non-motor wheelchairs. Inquire  at the Legion or call the service  officer, Al Boyes at 886-7798.

The mold is destroyed  when ihe casting is removed and  hand finished, so each piece is  'one-of-a-kind.  by Peter Trower  We headed back lo the farmhouse around midnight and I  climbed the creaky stairs to  Jack's studio. Stretched out on  his couch surrounded by that  magical apparatus, it was impossible not to Ihink about The  Hags. 1 imagined them prowling  formlessly about beyond the  walls, intent on God only knew  what sinister mischief. I tried to  envision I hem.  The Indians always avoided this  island. They knew there i.  more to darkness here than  meets the e_\e.  The flans creep grim through  ihe thickets, hissing like  winds.  They move through walls and  windows, easy as smoke  They fish for souls in the hours  foreign to lighl  They are pieces of darkness  going for more lhan Ihe  throat.  They are ancient things gone  wily with time and damnation  They seek to pull us inlo the  dead trees and down  They were here before men.  They will be here when men  have departed.  The Indians knew and have  always avoided this island.  I ended up scaring the hell  oul of myself bul Jack's barrier  held firm and finally, 1 slept.  (From the perspective of two  decades later, I don'l remember  whether I really thought The  Hags existed. All I know is  sleeping under a Tibetan  wizard's horn in the studio of a  man whose middle name was  Merlin, in a spooky old house  with the nighl wind ghosting  through the eaves, ii certainly  wasn't hard to suspend disbelief.)  John Daly would be pleased  by Rose Nicolson  Book reviewers are supposed  to be detached and critical, bul I  found il impossible io maintain  that atliluttde about "Fishing  With John" by Edith Iglauer  Daly. Many of the people in the  book were friends of mine for  over twenty years, and reading  it was like a reunion for me.  When Edith Daly talks about  my old Danish neighbor Chris  Sondrup, il evokes vivid  memories of his liny cabin per  ched on the hill, surrounded by  a triumphant splash of lupines,  poppies and roses tucked in  amongst the salal. I can almost  hear Chris's gentle voice, with  his Danish accent and slight  stutter and what life was like on  Ihe coast when he first arrived  as a boy in the twenties.

When she describes John's  troller, the "Morekelp", with  its complicated rigging, tiny oil  stove, compact bunks, Gardner  engine, neat rows of shiny brass  fishing spoons and many coloured "hoochies", you can  almost smell the special fish  boat smell which is a combination of diesel oil, fish and sea  water.  She describes utterly silent  nights in snug anchorages where  stars are reflected in the water;  tense hours running down  Hecate Straits in rough weather;  the closed-in world of fog,  where the only reality is within  the perimeter of the stretched  out poles and their dragging  fishing lines.  Some of Iglauer's descriptions provoke outright laughter.  Her dismay when she stumbles  on the strange fisherman's  superstition of the dire consequences of opening a can of  milk upside down remind me  that, many years later, I still  check to see which way is up  when 1 open a can of Pacific  milk.  John Daly was a man who  challenged all conventional  ideas; who divided people into  those he gave fish to and those  he didn't; who wrote long,  thought-provoking letters to  friends, M.P.'s and public  figures in his own brand of picturesque shorthand; who carried on a lifelong love affair  with the sea; who passionately  loved sunrises.  His wife not only loved him,  but learned to love his world.  He would have been very  satisfied with "Fishing with  John."  LAST WEEK  WAHHAB  Psychic Readings  Life Counsellor  886-9747  The next day Jack, Mary and  I went for a leisurely stroll along  the nearby roads and trails.  Jack didn't mention The Hags  again but the talk was by no  means mundane. He pointed  out a hollow where he had  found some curious uniden-  tifable bones. He also told me  of a derelict cabin in a remote  corner of the island where there  was a bible on a table. The  house was falling apart but the  bible remained like new, as  though immune to dust, weather and all the attendant ravages  of time. Even in broad daylight,  the inexplicable never seemed  far away on Texada in those  days.  Late that afternoon Jack and  I set out lo meet the mysterious  Magnus, Mary electing to stay  home. We picked up John Kelly  and proceeded lo a house on a  windy headland at the northern  extremities of Vananda. Magnus was a Dane, a white haired  distinguished looking man of  about 60. His speech was slow,  slightly accented and very sure.  He had a definite presence.  We sat down in the living  room. It was totally lined with  wall to ceiling bookcases, filled  with books of every description,  from arcane philosophy and  mysticism lo science fiction.  Magnus' reading tastes were  about as eclectic as you could  get. Our host seemed to have  been expecting us. There were  two bottles of aquavit and four  glasses on the coffee lable. It  appeared to be part of some  long-established ritual.  Magnus was very interested  in the book lhat Jack and I were  doing. He had already read the  manuscript, seen the illustrations and wanted a copy as soon  as it came off the press. I promised to send him one.  The talk veered off in other  directions, with Magnus carrying the bulk of the conversation. 1 began to see whai Jack  meant. Magnus was awesomely  well-informed on almost every  subject that came up. His fund  of knowledge verged on omniscience. There were moments  when he seemed lo be reading  our minds. It was unsettling and  yel Ihere was nothing in Ihe  least menacing aboul Magnus.  He just seemed to know more  lhan lie should, or could.  ...lo be continued  WHAT'S NEW  ���*e  3fe  in DINING OUT  on the  Sunshine  Coast?  =cs=  3rr  33=  arc  Z_X_e__  3H  j* GIBSONS LEGION *"*�������  ggv  mm Fri., Sept. 30 & Sat., Oct. 1  Join us for a couple of great evenings with  ENCORE  A liltle of everything, including old favourites  We have the LIVE Music  Call 886-2411  for a dinner reservation  "   ace  ace  Members & Guests Welcome  as  __r__z  ac  -arrr  ��  For all your  Satellite Needs  Call MOONHAKER  ELECTRONICS  883-8103  Uiua La  cedArs  PI  ���This Weekend*  it's  MEXICAN WEEKEND  don't miss it!  ���Entertainment-  CUEfiUO BROS.

Rhythms of Life  Libra has gift of timing  by Penny Fuller  It seems that so many important things depend on timing,  being in the right place at the  right time, moving on an instinct that changes the course of  your life, just at the right time.  ; Think about the people who  chose   not   to   leave  on   the  Titanic.  When it comes to a sense of  . timing, people with a strong  Libran aspect in their birth  chart   have   an   innate   gift,  ��� especially those with their Sun  ��� in Libra (September 23 - October 23). This has been called  the sign of the generals. Now  I've always had a hard time with  that. On an oveall basis, Libra  denotes harmony, and  beauty, human relationships  and creativity. How does a warmonger fit in with that?  i    A lot of it comes down to us-  : ihg the strengths inherent in that  sign. If you are in harmony with  the world and yourself, you  develop an instinct for the  rhythms of your time and place.  The Libran tendency to see both  sides of an issue can be  developed into an ability to anticipate others' reactions and  possible actions, making Libran  people potentially brilliant  strategists. How you choose to  use those abilities is a matter of  individual choice.  There is no strength that does  not have a weakness built into  it, nor a weakness that lacks  some kind of strength. Those of  you born with Sun in Libra can  most likely see both sides of  each character trait within  yourself and you need to choose  how you're going to manifest  that part of yourself.  If you choose to draw on the  strength of the strategist, you  can smooth a lot of paths in  your life; the balance that you  need to maintain in doing that is  to avoid at the same time,  manipulating people.  This is tricky, but stick with  me. If you use your talent for  anticipating others' actions and  reactions, and use that  knowledge to choose your best  course of action, then that's not  manipulating them. That's  simply using your ability to  enhance your life.  If, on the other hand, you use  those instincts to change your  behaviour in order to cause someone else to act or react in the  way   that   you   want,   that's  manipulation and not healthy.  People know when they're being manipulated and, whether  or not there's anything concrete  that they can point to, they'll  feel resentment towards the  manipulator and it will come  out in various unpleasant ways.  Use your intuition to make  the best possible decisions for  yourself, to take control of your  own life, with a healthy respect  for others' rights to choose their  own paths.

"We  missed the boat on that a couple  of years ago," said Mayor Bud  Koch. "We considered it when  it was up for sale, but we didn't  have the money. It could still be  done if the residents of the area  were willing to have an increase  Iri taxes for the next twenty  ^ears or so."  A plan by St. John's  Anglican Church in Davis Bay  to relocate to two lots on Sim-  pfcins Road was generally more  acceptable to residents of that  area. The move would  necessitate rezoning to Public  afid Industrial use. Residents  hid some concern over the  possibility of problems with increased traffic in the vicinity  arid urged that a buffer zone of  tfees be retained.

The reason I say this is that the season is rapidly drawing to  a close and there won't be too many more weekends in the  fall when you can share this special treat with a loved one.  An early evening reservation ensures that you can still enjoy the tranquility of the scenery followed by a beautiful  sunset.  We two indulged in such an evening and my husband  started with an appetizer which was a plate of luscious prawns  Brochette on a bed of rice with sweet peppers. Needless to  say, I tried a taste of this treat and found it quite delicious.  For main course I chose boneless chicken breast stuffed  with ham and chedder cheese with a mushroom sauce. It was  served with potato Duchesse, mashed potato swirled and baked brown on top, shredded cabbage, and cauliflower  smothered in a delicious cheese sauce. I wish mine could turn  out like that!  My 'Lord and Master' chose a New York steak which came  exactly as he had requested - medium rare. This too was served with the potato Duchesse and vegetables, a special addition being the Butter Maitre D' which, when spread over the  hot steak, gives an aromatic flavour.  After a suitable interval giving time for digestion of this  totally adequate fare, we weakened and managed to find  space for dessert. No need to describe the New York  cheesecake served with strawberries and strawberry sauce.  The very name says it all.  It was interesting to note Lord Jim's selection of special  coffees with such items as Silly Coffee - will have to try that  next time. As well as the usual Spanish and Irish there is  Monte Cristo and After 8. It would be fun to spend an evening trying them all out, providing one didn't have to drive  home.

They practise  twice a week at the Cedar  Grove Elementary School to  prepare for the upcoming  season. Due to the limited sporting activities in this area for  teenagers, the formation of the  club is giving these 12 girls an  opportunity to represent Gibsons throughout the province in  volleyball.  During the 1987/88 season  the girfe raised money by raffles, odd jobs, and operating  booths at local community  functions. With this money they  bought uniforms, paid their  way to the Provincial Tournament held in Victoria, and had  some funds to help with the expense   of  summer  volleyball  Police  GIBSONS RCMP  While he was attempting to  avoid a car entering the Port  Mellon Highway from Elphinstone Road in Granthams, a  Sechelt motorcyclist, aged 29,  was thrown from his machine.

Pender debates rollerskating  RENO  Nov. 26 to Dec. 3, 1988  $219  Includes:  Two Sightseeing Trips  Wine and Cheese Party  Medical Coverage  Phone 886-3504  O.A.P.O. 38  Residents are urged to attend  the next meeting of the Pender  Harbour Community Club to  resolve a disagreement over  continuation of roller skating in  the community hall, an issue  shelved at the last meeting.  Volunteer-supervised roller  skating was held in the hall  from mid-February to mid-May  and the club purchased rental  equipment, as well as gaining 60  new members in the club who  attended the twice-weekly  recreational activity.  Skating was intended to  resume next month, but opposition at the last meeting has  postponed the starting date and  intends to prevent its resuming,  claiming that roller skating will  do more damage to the oak  floor and incur more janitorial  expense than the club can afford.  Supporters of roller skating  say that income generated from  the increased use of the hall will  more than compensate for extra  expenses, and that other community club activities such as  swap meets cause as much  deterioration of the floor and  janitorial expense.  The Community Club offered the only roller skating  facility on the Sunshine Coast,  and a number of Pender harbour residents purchased their  own skates, assuming that the  community hall would continue  to be available for their use.  Community Club president  Hans Schroeder, in favour of  continuing roller skating, feels  that the controversy demonstrates the result of comm-  munity apathy concerning the  club.  "The hall belongs to all of  Pender Harbour, and ownership requires input. Without input there is no ownership. The  operation of the hall is the  responsibility of all the people  of Pender Harbour, not just the -  executive."  Attendance at Community  Club meetings is typically a  small fraction of the membership, and in this situation a majority vote can be established by  a very few people.  "People would be wise to  come to meetings regularly, so  other things like this don't get  out of hand. It's democracy in  action," said Schroeder.  Membership to your community Club is $3 or $5 for a  family, and a petition supporting roller skating at the hall has  been placed at the Oak Tree  Market.

It  "was when the Doukhobor sect  who called themselves the Sons  of Freedom (Svobodniki) accused the orthodox Doukhobors of  becoming loo materialistic, of  worshipping their worldly  possessions instead of worshipping God and, above all, sending iheir children to school.  They began holding protest  marches in the nude in public  places bul Ihe police hosed them  down wiih cold waler. After  that ihey began selling fire lo  schools and making crude  bombs and blowing up power  poles. On one of these expeditions two young men blew  ihemselves up bv mistake.  . In 1924 the CI'.

Everybody in  .thai car was killed. One  passenger could be Identified,  Jtmly by the print of his thumb  'which was found dangling from  In branch of a Iree. Somebody,  ���apparently, had smuggled a  Jbomb into Peter Verigan's luggage.  , Ihe fanatics among ihem  lonlimieii IO burn schools and  lomb power lines. Simma Holt,  It woman who spoke Russian  fluently, was a reporter for a  Vancouver newspaper al lhal  iiine. (I tiler she was elected as a  liberal M.P. in Ottawa), She  wenl to ihe kootenays, interviewed ihe Sons of Freedom  and wrote a book, Terror in Ihe  NiMH' III' find.  , Today we have terrorism used as a form of protest all over  Ihe world. It is a eerliiin kind of  Sra/y bigot who (hinks he can,  by placing a strategic bomb in  ihe path of some opponent, Influence public opinion. Bombs  cannol discriminate and always  kill innocent bystanders. The  I.R.A. in Northern Ireland has  achieved only disgraceful  notoriety and must realize that  ballots, not bombs, will overcome injustice there.  Recently, however, there lias  Keen a terrorist acl which has  caused many to rejoice.  Somebody placed a bomb in Ihe  plane carrying I he brutal  military dictator of Pakistan,  General Zia ul-Haq and a  number of his army brass. Also  on board was Ihe U.S. Ambassador Arnold Raphel and a  U.S. Brigadier General. Despite  his abominable reputation,  General Zia was highly valued  hy ihe U.S. as an ally againsl  ihe Soviets in Afghanistan.  Nobody survived ihe plane  crash and nobody has been  /identified as ihe smuggler of ihe  , .bomb.  ',.-    11 was II years ago lhal Zia  ;,- iil-Haq overthrew the democratic jjcally-elected President Zulfikar  " Ali Bhutto by a military coup.  Ali Bhutto was hanged and his  (inly child, daughler  Benazir,  left   lo   lead   ihe   democratic  cause.  ; Zia's reign of terror reads like  a nightmare. The old unjust  pattern prevailed, the rich land  owners gelling richer and the  Itior gelling poorer. Anybody  who complained was given a  Hogging. In Newsweek there is a  colour photograph of one of  these rituals. A man is held bent  over the back of a chair in a  public place and beaten wilh a  stick. His while shin over his  back and thighs is soaked wilh  blood. There were also public  executions.  A recent copy of Ihe Man  chester   Guardian   Weekly  devotes a two page spread lo the  situation in Pakistan. Zia was  given a splendid funeral and his  death has been mourned by  George Bush, George Shult/,  Jeane Kirkpalrick and Margaret  Thatcher. But in Pakistan's  greal cities, Ihere were large  demonstrations of joy.  Zia's successor, President  Ishaq Khan, has promised there  may be free elections held in  November. If so, Bcna/ir Bhul-  to's chances of winning are very  good. Concerning the ordeal of  Zia's rule, she told a reporter,  "I and my family and also my  friends always lived in the  shadow of death."  Now that most of the army  leaders were killed in Ihe plane  crash, the danger of military intervention during ihe election is  diminished. Bul anolher silent  danger exists. Pakistan is the  cenlre of an enormous trade in  heroin which supplies most of  the drug for the western market.  The millionaires who conduct il  have formed a mafia of iheir  own and interfere in the con-  duel of governing bodies.  Despite all Ihis, Bcna/ir Bhutto will stand for election. She  will campaign upon the promise  her father had made lo break  ihe power of the greal land  owners in the agricultural provinces and improve the lives of  Ihe poor.  Whal conlinues to pu//le me  is how ihe U.S. can slill claim to  be ihe bulwark of democracy  while supporting every filthy  military dictator in the weslern  world. Whal colossal hypocrisy.

VON IVO  Dear Sir,  Congratulations to lhal  group of leachers (and others?)  AND lo Ihe School Board  Trustees for responding so productively to the challenge inherent in bringing the concept  of global education' to the'  classroom in a practicable way!!  Global Education has as its  foundalion the ideal that Peace  is possible. Peace as an absence  of war certainly bul also and  necessarily, peace in its broadest  societal sense. We cannot have  one without the other.  On the globe today it requires  courage to believe that mankind  can live in peace, ll is great to  see School Dislrict 46  demonstrating that courage and  having the determination to  develop curriculae which it  believes will help make peace  possible.  Bringing the Guide to it's  final draft niust have, be^n IrL.  exhausting experience, but also:  exhilarating when the potential  for ihe future is contemplated.

Regionalization which has  cost the lax payers of this province millions of dollars.  Yes, Vander Zalm may blame  the media for all of his-problems bul il was not the media,  but Vander Zalm and his caucus  thai decided to introduce  repressive legislation and  whoever comes out on top of  the power struggle they have all  been part of the decisions, scandals and the laughing stock that  our government has become  right across Canada. They are  all part of the government that  is gradually destroying British  Columbia and the lifestyle thai  we have worked for and come  lo expect.

Nikki says the recently-  opened centre, "is partially a  dream come true," then explains that her whole dream is  one of a full-fledged performing  arts centre, including facilities  for dance and theatre as well as  music.  She applied for arts grants  and other kinds of funding to  develop her dream, but all her  requests were refused. Most  people would have given up, but  Nikki's dedication and optimism weren't quashed.  "I just went ahead and did  whatever I could on my own,"  she says in a modest, melodic  voice, standing behind the  counter in her bright, spacious  music centre, surrounded by an  array of traditional and hi-tech  musical instruments from  kazoos to Korg synthesizers.  "Every time I broke a string  or lost a pick," she says,  relating her decision to go into  business, "I had to go to Vancouver. 1 decided there was a  music store needed here.  "You don't like to connect  the dollar bill with what you  love to do," Nikki says, frowning now, trying not to apologize  for charging a fee for her  teaching, but trying to come to  terms with charging is  something she's done for years  for free.  "Teaching is the backbone of  the business," Nikki says. "The  money I make teaching goes  back into the store."  The Strings and Things Music  Centre has four studios  available for individual instruction in piano, violin, guitar,  bass, drums, flute, saxophone,  and vocals.

"Guitar was the 'in thing' 40  years ago," Nikki laughs, enjoying the way traditions outlast  fads.  "I grew up with calypso,,  with the Latin rhythms. It really  is something that comes from  the soul."  Nikki was raised in the West  Indies and remembers lhat her  professional involvement with  music began there, with a radio  spot when she was nine years  old.  "Funnily enough," she says,  "the new music is leaning  towards it (Latin), and I like it a  lot because I grew up with it."  Nikki doesn't see a generation gap where music is con-  concerned, saying, "If it  weren't for the teenagers, I'd  have stayed in the 1940's, the  swing era, with the music that  was popular when I was  young."  She sees the big band sound  as one that's experiencing a  revival of ��� sorts, a renewed  popularity, and notes Pender  Harbour's Harbour Lights big  band for their success and  growth.  After Nikki's family moved  to Holland she and her sister  sang in a popular all-female  quartet.  "That group fed us during  the war years, literally," Nikki  says, describing how the quartet  often performed in exchange  for food which was rationed  and unavailable for any price.  In Canada Nikki spent six  years with the CBC doing a  weekly program and guest appearances on other shows as  part of a female group called  The Weber Trio and The Wanderers.  The trio has also appeared on  television, including a spot  where they were cast as the Andrew's Sisters.  "All through my life I've  been involved in music," Nikki  says, "I've done it in bits and  drabs; sometimes I've let it lie,  but it's always been my main  thing."  Her favourite part of her  musical life is organizing and instructing choral .groups,  especially young people's  groups.  "When they come in we get  together and do crazy things  -pop stuff - and we have a lot of  fun."  Nikki Weber's background  and expertise in music could  make her a lofty, if not unapproachable, local celebrity, but  she refuses to let anyone feel intimidated by her history and  talent.  She smiles warmly and openly and says about her passion,  her life, her music, "I feel good  about it.  '"Who knows," she adds,  "maybe someday we'll have a  building with facilities for  dance, and music, and theatre.  Maybe before I kick the bucket  I may see that. Who knows?"

John Pass is the winner of the  Canadian Poetry Contest, and  lives on Sakinaw Lake. The  closest place the Toronto-based  editor doing ihe telephone interview could comfortably identify  was Vancouver.  Even to Sunshine Coast  residents, Sakinaw Lake is  remote, but, for John and his  wife Theresa Kishkan (also a  poet), its solitude and closeness  to nature fulfills a need for  hands-on living that nourishes  their creativity and provides a  wonderland environmenl for  iheir Ihree children.  John has taught both English  and Drama at Capilano College  and several lower mainland high  schools, and he's written poetry  for more lhan twenty years  now, since he attended the  University of British Columbia.  "Poetry is so practical. All  you have to carry around is a  notebook and a pencil, and  poetry is closer to my personality," John says, comparing il lo  theatre or film-making. "It's  more thoughtful and alwiys accurate."  If 1 wanled a particular leaf  for a particular image, I'd have  to manufacture lhat leaf  because I can't find it in the  world," he says, explaining the  limitations in film.  "A picture is worth a thousand words' is entirely false.  Language is a very efficient  means of communication; it's  so efficient and absolutely  precise."  John currently teaches  English at Capilano College,  mainly composition skills as  part of an Adult Basic Education program.  "ll keeps me honest," he  smiles, "and it's nice doing  something entirely separate  (from poetry) and down to  earth."  John and Teresa gol down to  earlh six years ago, moving inlo  a tent on their eight-acre properly, and have since con-  si rttctcd a large, bright home  and a small, bright prim shop  thai houses a 1987 Chandler  and Price letter press, the  mechanical component of Iheir  business, High Ground Press.  "It's a strongmen press,"  John says affectionately,  describing the machine lhal, in  its century of existence, has produced a newspaper in Hazcllon  amd once was part of an experiment by a creative thinker who  envisioned a water-power  modification that left the classic  machine seized with rust on the  back of Ihe creek.  It was rescued, lovingly  restored, discovered by John,  and now softly thunks and performs in a smooth, well-oiled  way al the hands of ils present  owner, pushing inked letters into the highest quality acid-free  paper, one sheet at a time.  High Ground Press is currently producing a series of  limited-edition poetry broadsheets by twelve Canadian poets  for collectors and subscribers,  and John is pleased with the  results, noting that learning the  craft of using a press was a difficult undertaking with liltle instruction available.  John  Pass  is a craftsman,  whether he's building a house,  operating an antique press, or  writing poetry, which he does  on a circa-1920 Underwood  typewriter.  "You need concentration for  poetry," he says, "but it comes  in bursts. I'm thinking aboul  tilings all the time, but  sometimes there's a couple of  weeks between times that I  wrile. You need to pay homage  lo Ihe inspiration."  The success of John's entry in  the Canadian Poetry Contest  was unplanned; in fact he  hadn't entered a competition in  years.  His winning poem, Aclaeon,  was read only once before last  week's contest finals in Toron-  Robinson-English  double ring nuptials  to, al the Harbour Jazz and  Poetry Evening held at the  Pender Harbour School of  Music last spring.  The poem revolves around  ihe Greek myth of a hunter who  surprises a goddess bathing  nude in a stream, who in turn  iransforms him into a slag that  is later killed by Actaeon's hunting comrades.  The Canadian Poetry Contest  benefits the Canada-India  Village Aid (CIVA) and top entries will be published in ihe anthology, "The Dry Wells of India", possibly by Harbour  Publishing Company.  John's eighth and lasl book  of poems, "An Arbitrary Dictionary," was published in 1984  by Coach House Press, and he  has been published in virtually  every BC literary magazine.  r  Wearing a wedding dress  made by one of her  bridesmaids, Debbie Robinson  was married to David English In  a double-ring ceremony on  Saturday, August 20 in St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church,  Gibsons.  The bride is the daughter of  Doug and Arlene Baird, and the  groom is the son of Charles and  Denise English, all of Gibsons.  The bride entered ihe church  on the arm of her brother,  John, who wore his Air Force  uniform and she carried a bouquet of while stephanotis and  red roses.  Her white satin dress, made  by Susan Brandys, featured an  overlay of lace with an applique  of beads and sequins below the  heart-shaped neckline. The  dress had a string of pearls  around the waist and a two-  foot-long train.  Maid of honour was Melody  Sullivan of North Bay,  Ontario., Bridesmaids were  Susan Brandys and the bride's  sister, Nancy Robinson. Flower  girls were Dcanna Hudson and  Michelle Robinson, nieces of  the bride.  The attendants wore lavender  satin dresses and Juliet caps  trimmed with tulle and mauve  roses lhal matched iheir bouquets.  Several of the dresses were  sewn by Ihe bride.  Best man was Rudy Kern and  pianist was Tony English,  brother of the groom. Guests,  including many from out of  lown, were ushered by Mark  and Peter English, brothers of  the groom. The marriage  ceremony was conducted by-  Rev. John E. Robinson.  Godfrey Robinson, uncle of  the bride, was master of  ceremonies for the reception in  the new church hall. Following  a honeymoon in Hawaii, ihe  Englishes will live in Burnaby.  David is a helicopter engineer  and Debbie will enroll in the  medical records program at  BCIT.

Strait weapons testing challenged  The Nanoose Conversion  Campaign (NCC) believes it  may have found a way to stop  naval weapons testing in  Georgia Strait without its  members having to be arrested.  While the DND has, for  years, ordered civilian boats out  of the test range, it now appears  that the Navy may have no legal  control over who uses the area.  And while the military may not  be able to bar public use, they  appear to not be prepared to  test weapons when other vessels  are there.  "The events of the past week  open up a whole new terrain for  us in terms of strategy," said  NCC spokesperson Norm Abbey. "This means that people  who have always opposed the  military use of the area but  haven't been ready to risk arrest  can now get directly involved.  We see a real chance of stopping  the testing and reclaiming the  area for peaceful purposes."  Last week activists outwaited  a U.S. nuclear attack submarine, the USS La Jolla,  which had come to Nanoose to  use the test range. Early  Wednesday morning, NCC  members were in Nanoose Bay  aboard two sailboats, planning  to enter the range to disrupt  weapons testing, but the sub  never left the wharf. Thursday  the waiting game appeared to be  continuing, until the sub finally  left the area.  "It appears thai our plan to  be out there and visible was  enough to keep the sub off the  range," said Brian Mills of  NCC. "On a three day visil to  Nanoose, they were only able lo  lest the firsl day, before we had  our boats ready." DND officials admit that the testing can  be dangerous and that they do  not fire torpedoes until the  range is clear of other boats.  Official responses to the protest varied. While Lt. Cdr.  Michael Dunn of the Canadian  Forces Maritime Experimental  and Test Ranges (CFMETR) at  Nanoose had said prior to the  protest, "They'll simply be  removed" (Nanaimo Times,  September 8), other DND officials appeared much less  assured.  Pacific region Canadian  Forces spokesperson Maj.  Robin Alford said he did not  know if someone could be  charged if they purposely ignored the military's advisory  notice to leave, and that "we  can't fence (the area) off, can  we?"  (Times-Colonist, September 7).  CFB Esquimalt base information officer Lt. Mike Ferland  said Ihe notice does not imply  Ihere is legal prohibition from  people being in a certain place,  merely that "it's a maritime  notice that it is not a prudent  place to be". He admitted lhat  military ships using the range  are presently spending half their  lime waiting for non-authorized  ships to be cleared from the  area. (Times-Colonist,  September 7).  NCC and Greenpeace had  previously obtained a lawyer's  opinion lhal the military had no  legal righl to close off the range,  but the visit of the l.a Jolla had  been the first opportunity for  activists lo test the issue.  NCC plans to continue putting boats on the tesl range  should there be more nuclear-  capable vessels coming to  Nanoose, and the group hopes  they can significantly disrupt       Abbey, "but a significant one.  testing schedules. It   looks  like  a  nuclear-free  "This is a first step," said       Georgia Strait is within sight."

Highways meets  privatizing snag  by Penny Fuller  Approximately a year ago the  provincial governmenl announced its intention of privatizing the highways  maintenance department, and  shortly afterwards an employee  of the highways department and  Iwo individuals from the industry approached the highways  employees on the Sunshine  Coast to form a company which  would take over highways  maintenance in litis area.  Many employees in this area  decided it was a good idea, or at  least "the lesser of two evils."  In an interview with the Coast  News last week, a worker from  ihe Gibsons highway department said that, "Nobody likes  the idea of privatization, but  we're fighting for our jobs. We  want to stay on the Sunshine  Coast, this is our home. And  this seems to be the best way to  do it."  The concept, which was certainly accepted by about 26  workers, was that they would  come up with 51 percent of the  capital needed to invest in the  company, and in return would  own 51 percent of the shares'  controlling interest. It looked  like a sure thing. The government had agreed in principal  with their offer and all was pro-  ceding towards finalization of  the deal when six workers from  Powell River decided to back  out lasl week.  With the loss of six investors,  Gibsons workers are afraid that  the contract will be put out to  bid, and they'll lose their chance  to run their own company.  But according to Rod Frue,  who has been organizing the  employee's group the deal isn't  dead yet. The Powell  River/Texada Island workers,  he explained, wanted more time  to think aboul their investment.  The new terminology which was  just negotiated in the BC  Government Employee's Union  (BCGEU) contract may go a  long way in convincing them to  lake a risk.  BCGEU zone representative,  Hans Penner agrees. He told the  Coast News that, "the new terminology will really expedite the  movement of employees to  private companies."  Employees whose jobs are  privatized have a range of options. They may choose to stay  with the government service and  choose a job at a comparable  pay rate in their geographic  area.  But as Penner points out, on  the Sunshine Coast those jobs  just don't exist, and throughout  the province all highways  maintenance jobs will be with  private contractors.  They may also elect to receive  job training to find new suitable  jobs within . their geographic  region, an option that again is  not very viable on the Sunshine  Coast, as government jobs are  few and quite specialized. Or  they can choose to become part  of an employee group which applies for the government contract for this area.  In the contract just  negotiated, BCGEU has  managed to include an element  of job security for those who go  with a private contractor, for a  total of three years, in addition,  if the contractor fails to get a  renewal on his contract, the  former government employees  will have more than one year  where they can bid back into the  government service.  Frue will be meeting with  representatives from Victoria  today to let them know whether  or not the employees group is  still a contender for the contract  or whether they should put out  a request for proposals from the  public.  Meanwhile, Hans Penner is  unhappy with the whole situation. "The employees are  caught between a rock and a  hard place," he said. He also  pointed out that the new  language in the BCGEU contract allows the government to  privatize any department.  Webb graduates  At ihe Spring 1988 examination session, Margaret Webb of  Sechelt completed requirements  for her A.R.C.T. (Associate of  the Royal Conservatory of  Toronto) degree with a first  class honour mark in Harmony  and Counterpoint 5.  MARGARET WEBB  Margaret prepared for the  most demanding part of the ex  amination, her Performer's  Practical which she passed with  honours in January 1986. Since  then she has been studying Advanced Analysis and Counterpoint with Joseph Berarducci in  North Vancouver.  Margaret began piano lessons  when she was 11 and continued  until she graduated from  Elphinstone Secondary in 1956,  then she moved to Vancouver.  Upon returning to Sechelt,  while raising a family and continuing to work, she resumed her  lessons.  In November Margaret, with  her husband John, will travel to  Toronto to attend the Convocation to receive her diploma at  the university.  Margaret is the fourth student from the coast to achieve  this honour, preceeded over the  years by Anne Lang, Mae Freer  and Dianne McDonald.  This will be a perfect way for  Margaret to celebrate her fiftieth birthday, truly the thrill of  a lifetime.
