 Jo  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY 81.1  PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  lools financing questioned  by John Moore  A disagreement over the School Board's application for  regional board funding for the gymnasium to be built in  conjunction with the new Davis Bay Elementary School resulted  in Area C Director Charles Lee's resignation from the Joint Use of  School Facilities Committee at the regional board meeting last  Thursday evening.  "1 cannot sit on what I cannot condone," Lee said, having  tendered his resignation. Board Chairman Ed Nicholson received  no reply to his request for another Director to replace Director  Lee on the Committee , and acknowledged a remark by another  Director that "the committee may not be in existence much  longer."  Lee's resignation from the Joint Use of School Facilities  Committee came during the board meeting later in the evening  when the board received and discussed the minutes of the Joint  Use of School Facilities Committee meeting held two days  previously on Tuesday May 13.  Director Lee had pointed out, at a regional board meeting held  last month, that a letter received by the board at that meeting from  School Supcrintcndant John Denley lent itself to the  interpretation that the School Board was under the impression  that joint use funding would be available for the Davis Bay and  West Sechelt schools.  "In fact, no provision has been made for Joint Use funding for  thc next two years," Lee stated at that meeting. It was  recommended lhat clarification of the letter's meaning be sought  from Mr. Dcnlcy's office.  Clarification came at the May 13 meeting of the Joint Use of  School Facilities Committee, where a recommendation by  Director Lee that no funds be spent in 1981 was defeated and a  recommendation passed "that Davis Bay School be given the  priority for Joint Use funds in 1981 because the addition at  another time" (referring to the enlargement ofthe gymnasium for  joint commuinity-school use) "would be far more costly." At that  meeting School Board Secretary-Treasurer Mills pressed for a  speedy decision from the regional board, so that the architect  might receive instructions as soon as possible.  "There goes our new building in Sechelt down the tube," Area F  Director David Hunter interjected when the committee's  recommendation was read at Thursday's board meeting. He was  referring to the proposed $300,000 office building, to be used  jointly by the Village of Sechelt and the regional board, that is still  being considered by the board.  "The Joint Facility office building shouldn't be mixed up with  the Joint Use of Schools, Director Joe Harrison said, "They are  two separate issues."  These things are tied together," Director Hunter replied, "the  money has to come from somewhere. We have indicated in three  motions of this board to the Village of Sechelt that we are in on the  Joint Office Facility. The Village has now sold its present  quarters. We understood that joint use monies would not be  required by the School Board until after these schools were built  and had grown."  Area E Director Jim Gurney once again expressed doubts  about the need for a Joint Office Facility building and his  sentiments were echoed by Director Harry Almond.  "Just make sure people know what it is you're taking away from  them," Almond said, "You're taking away recreational facilities to  build a bloody office building nobody wants."  At the Joint Use of Schools Committee meeting on the 13th,  School Board Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills read extracts from  the committee's two previous meetings indicating that the  committee has tentatively recommended joint use funding for  schools to be built at Davis Bay and West Sechelt. At the board  meeting Thursday night Mills addressed the whole board,  pointing out that under the master agreement recreation is a  priority for joint use funds and that school facilities provide a  focal point for recreational activities on the coast.  Those earlier meetings were illegal," Director Hunter stated,  The wrong people attended those meetings. I was on the Joint  Use of Schools Committee at the time and I wasn't invited. The  Chairman ofthe Joint Facility Committee was invited instead. I  told you we'd get into trouble with these names. Even the  newspapers can't keep them straight."  Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills said, "We always had the right  people at the meetings."  Board Chairman Ed Nicholson pointed out that since the  minutes of those meetings were accepted by the board, they are  legally pan of the board's records.  "I was remiss if I allowed the School Board to believe that  monies would be forthcoming," Director Lee told the board and  Mr. Mills, "I chose the advise the committee at the last meeting  that no joint use funds would be available because, in my view, the  public are paying a hidden extra school tax via joint use funds. I  am not in favour of Joint Use of Schools or Joint Office use until  such time as I can see, from my in-depth study of our finances,  whether or not we have the money." At that point, Director Lee  tendered his resignation from the Joint Use of Schools  Committee and addressed Chairman Ed Nicholson on the subject  of the Finance Committee, of which Lee is Chairman.  "Mr. Chairman, Do you or do you not have confidence in the  Chairman of your Finance Committee?"  "Absolutely," Nicholson replied.  Area A Director Joe Harrison pointed out that joint use  funding of recreation was introduced without public referendum.  "We've been avoiding the problem by using Joint Use Funding  to fund recreation and it should go to a public vote," Harrison  said. Director Ed Nicholson agreed that the quetion of  recreational funding should go to a referendum.  The School Board's application for Joint Use Funds was'  referred to the next meeting of the Finance Committee. The  meeting will be held on May 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the regional board  offices in Sechelt. The meeting will be open to the public.  School Board Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills was less than  optimistic about the referral to the Finance Committee.  "I think it's unfortunate that the board has chosen to call a halt  now," Mills said, "because, as I explained, Davis Bay and West  Sechelt are the last two major projects for which funding would be  required. Over the years we've established Joint Use facilities  from one end of the coast to the other. With the completion ofthe  Davis Bay and West Sechlelt facilities every community would  have had such facilities and Joint Use of Schools costs would have  dropped dramatically. But it's their money and they have to  decide how to spend it."  Interviewed later by the Coast News, Director and Finance  Chairman Charles Lee reiterated his position.  Tm not against Joint Use of Schools funding," Lee explained,  "but I am opposed to the public being taxed without its consent,  particularly when we had a 27% increase in direct taxation this  year. We have already contributed a quarter of a million dollars to  school buildings and I have yet to see any figures indicating the use  of those facilities by the community. I know the School Board says  the figures are available, but when you come wilh your hand out  for money, you should come armed with facts and figures to  support your request. At the committee meeting one of the  representatives from the School Board tried to intimidate me by  asking me what the people of my area would think of Ihis dec: ;ion.  I know this isn't going to be popular decision, but I've been  unpopular before. The same representative referred to $100,000 as  a "minimal" amount of money. In fact, its one tenth ofthe regional  budget and a third of our three mill funds."  (Director Lee states his position more fully in a letter to the  editor in this week's Coast News.)  Director Lee said it is unlikely that his in-depth study of the  regional board finances will be complete before the May 22  Finance Committee meeting.  "I'll be able to give them educated guesses and that's about  all," Lee said.

May 20. 1980  Volume 34, Number 20  Petition Regional Board  Lee Bay developers appear  The Sna ney mo Tribal Dancers from Nanaimo were some of the stars at the Heritage Day at Sechelt  Elementary School last week. It started out as traditional dancing, but soon the audience were participating.  Oldest B.C. May Day  Pender May Day memories warm  One of the best parades in  recent memory, absolutely  perfect weather, and what was  perhaps a record turnout  greeted Pender Harbour's  34th consecutive May Day on  Saturday, May 17.  School trustee Al Loyd told  the record turnout in his  remarks before the official  ceremonies that the Pender  May Day was the oldest  consecutive May Celebration  in the province of British  Columbia.  A feature of this year's  celebration was the presence  on the greeting platform of  many of the May Queens who  had been crowned in Pender  Harbour in the past. The first  of die May Queens present  was Mis. Nancy Brown (nee  Reid) who was ^mwned Queen  ofthe May in 1949.  An organizer of the pageant  told the Coast News that it was  hoped that the first May  Queen of all, Mrs. Gladys  Crocker (nee Harris) would be  invited next year to visit from  the Cariboo.  In his opening remarks, Al  Loyd reminisced of earlier  May Day celebrations. In the  early  days   the  children   of  Pender Harbour went to  four different schools, Lloyd  said. "There were four one-  room schools: one at Irvines  Landing, one at Kleindale,  one at Hassans (earlier Don-  nellys), and one at Silver  Sands. The schoolchildren  sold tickets and everyone who  bought one could vote for the  May Queen of his or her  choice. I remember one grandfather who was so convinced  that his daughter should be  the May Queen that he spent  several hundred dollars making sure she won," said Lloyd.  "Every girl should have such  a grandfather."  Lloyd paid tribute to one of  the early teachers still resident in the Harbour, Constance Harper who taught for  many years at the Kleindale  school. "I hope Mrs. Harper is  here today, bless her," said  Lloyd.  Lloyd and Madeira Park  principal Vern Wishlove  shared the master of ceremonies' duties as the Queens  and attendants were introduced. Queen of the May for  this year, replacing Queen  Michelle Murray, was Sandy  Barnes.   Queen   Sandy   will  reign until May Day, 1981.  Lots of winners were declared in the judging of the  parade. Madeira Park Legion  took the trophy for the  best local float. The best  commercial float was judged  to be that entered by Roosen-  dal Farms. The best noncommercial float was that  entered by the Ambulance  Service of Madeira Park and  the newly formed Suncoast  Players had their float judged  best in a special category.  Developers of the Lee Bay  subdivision addressed the  Planning Committee of the  regional board Thursday evening on the controversial  subject of the development  park dedication.  The Pender Harbour Ratepayers Association has declared its opposition to the  proposed dedication and requested that the well-known  local landmark of Daniel  Point, included in the subdivision,' be dedicated as a  public park in its stead.  Gordon Hall, speaking on  behalf of developers, Stan  Anderson, Frank Jorgensen,  Warren McKibbin, Terry Rod-  way and himself, produced a  map of the Pender Harbour  area indicating points of  public access to water.  "We feel that Pender  Harbour isn't suffering from  any lack of water access,"  Hall said, "We have all the  permits for the subdivision,  water, sewer, etc. and we  are prepared to make our  whole park dedication immediately. What we want to  do is get on with this subdivision,"  When Hall finished speaking, the board meeting was  addressed by C.F. Williams  of Lee Road, who has spoken  to the board on a previous  occasion in support of the  proposal for a park at Daniel  Point.  "I'm not against this subdivision," Williams said, "I  look forward to having some of  these gentlemen for neighbours. However, once again, I  repeat our request that Daniel  Point be set aside as a public  park."  Williams produced and  turned over to the board a  petition containing seventy  signatures endorsing this request.  Area A Director Joe Harrison suggested that the developers meet with citizens'  groups and a Regional Planner  to work out a compromise.  After the meeting Pender  Harbour Ratepayers Association Secretary Howard  White told the Coast News,  "We're a little upset about the  way the developers of this  subdivision were allowed to  address the board. They were  not on the official agenda  and we were not informed  that they would be appearing  until it was too late for us  to get our petitions in and  form a delegation. We were  able to get Mr. Williams  from the Area Planning  Committee to come down at  the last minute, but we have a  lot of petitions out in circulation and we could have  produced many more signatures."  "We feel that this is a very  poor way for the board to d'.  business on such an important  issue, " White went on to say,  "and I object to Ed Nicholson's characterization of the  movement in support of the  Daniel Point Park as the work  of a special Interest group.  If he were to hold a referendum on this question up here  he.'d find 85-90% suppon  for the idea of a public par':  at Daniel Point."  See Page 9 for  Tourist and  Hospitality Guide  Creek Settlement  Plan approved  Finance relief  Provincial Finance Minister  Hugh Curtis announced last  Thursday that the government  would purchase the entire $62.7  bond issue by the Municipal  Finance Authority of B.C.  This government purchase  will save the M.F.A. approximately $500,000 in issue costs,  a savings that will be passed on  to the boards and municipalities, as well as enabling  these bodies to reduce their  high-interest bank debts.  As previously reported in the  Coast News, this type of  financing, which saves the  government going to the money markets of the east and  abroad twice a year to raise  funds, was urged by representatives Charles Lee of the  S.C.R.D. and Derek Humphries of West Vancouver.  Flare confusion  Both Art McPhee of the  Provincial Emergency Program and the Gibsons RCMP  received numerous calls about  distress flares over Keats  Island Saturday evening.  The flares were seen at  11 p.m. McPhee found  that they were from the  HMCS   Yukon   which   was  touring between Bowen Island  and Keats with the Lieutenant  Governor H.P. Bell-Irving on  board.  The navy habitually fire off  any flares when the shelf life  is close to expiring. Some  confusion arose because the  appropriate agencies were not  informed  The Roberts Creek Settlement Plan passed Third Reading and was adopted as policy  by the S.C.R.D. at last Thursday's Regional Board meeting.  Changes suggested at the  final public meeting on the  plan, held March 3rd, as well as  changes requested by the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs  were incorporated before the  plan was given Third Reading.  The plan will now be forwarded  to Victoria for provincial  government approval.  Objections were raised initially by Area F Director David  Hunter, who pointed out that  the section of the plan containing the residents' stated  opposition to the present  location of the large propane  supply tanks in Roberts Creek  could result in a threat to  propane supplies on ihe coast.  "If this plan is adopted, it  becomes the policy of this  board," Hunter said, "And if  those tanks are removed there  will be no more propane fuel in  this region."  Hunter stated thai P.E.P.  Co-ordinator Art McPhee had  made a study of the whole coast  and determined that the propane tanks, which must be  accessible from both the sea  and by road, presently occupy  the most feasible site for their  location.  The adoption of this plan  does not mean thc propane  tanks will be removed," Chairman Ed Nicholson pointed out,  "The plan is being adopted  as policy by this board. That  section of the plan is intended  as an expression of the residents' objection in principle lo  the location ofthe tanks. If they  feel that the tanks constitute a  danger lo their corimunity,  they could not in all cc lsciencc  do other vise than point it oul."  At the vote, Director Hunter  voted with the other Directors  to accept the plan.  The Safety Bear visited Gibsons Elementary School on  Friday to answer questions on the rules of the road.  This week he will be in Sechelt talking with the school  children.  ��&��att-i>'> ��� ������  |For 35 years the most widely  ead Sunshine Coast newspaper!! 2.

Christmas  Lyn Fabio  Sonia Trudel  Advertising Department:  Allan Crane  Fran Berger  May delights  The blessed month of May was kind  again this year to the annual festive days  in Sechelt and Pender Harbour and from  all accounts the citizenry was out in  good number to celebrate the Spring,  Ihe weather, and their good fortune  in living where they do.  One trait which seems to be on the  increase is the tendency for participation  in the local festive days from the different  communities  on  the  Sunshine   Coast.  In Pender Harbour the Elphinstone Band  was prominent and at the Timber Days  Parade the Port Mellon firemen took  one of the lop prizes.  This is a trend which we hope will  continue. There's a lot to be said for  these sunny meetings with one's neighbours with the cares of the workaday  world set to one side and we hope that in  years to come more people will take the  opportunity to visit back and forth  at these light-hearted times.  Joint Use questioned  A few weeks ago we congratulated  Director Charles Lee, with whom we have  not always seen eye to eye, on the initiative shown by him and West Vancouver  Mayor Derek Humphries in recommending at a recent meeting of the Muricipal  Finance Authority that municipalities  and regional boards be allowed to borrow, at preferred interest rates, from the  surplus of tax money piled up in Victoria.  The saving from such borrowing over  borrowing on the international money  markets is considerable and word now  comes that the recommendation has been  accepted and again congratulations  would seem to be in order for the often  controversial regional director.  Director Lee's latest initiative in  questioning the apportionment of regional board money for the construction of  school facilities which will theoretically  benefit the community, and perhaps  already has in Pender Harbour, for  example, where the first Joint Use  Facility has just been completed, is a  more troublesome matter.  On the one hand, it is obvious that  considerable value can accrue to the  communities ofthe Sunshine Coast under  the program. The area is still woefully  lacking in recreational facilities, particularly for the young, and the Regional  Board money has made improvements  possible.  On the other hand, Director Lee's  charge that such apportionment of  Regional tax money amounts to a hidden  school tax must be considered carefully.  We have been critical of both the mushroom growth of the educational budget,  which we feel is top heavy in administrative costs, and of the tendency of  the present provincial government to  shift more and more of the tax burden  to local taxpayers while they accumulate  their vaunted surpluses. It may be that  Director Lee is right and that in approving such financial endeavours as the  Joint Use program, the provincial government has found yet another way to  diminish its contribution at local expense.  In addition, the School Board has  something of a reputation for heavy-  handed control of any building over which  it has the nominal control. The Women's  Institute Building in Gibsons was sold  to the School Board for the sum of  $1.00 and is now used for a maintenance  shop. In return it was agreed that there  would be community use of school  facilities. This did not prevent the schools  being locked up like fortresses in the  early seventies with member^ pf, the  public expected to show forelock-tugging  gratitude for their use. ?  Perhaps it would be better, as Secretary-Treasurer-Roy Mills argues, if the  Joint Use program could go forward  unchallenged for the next two years  until the bulk ofthe facility improvement  has been done. It may also, however,  be time for the people of the Sunshine  Coast to face the issue of recreational  need squarely and vote to apportion  money to that end.  ..from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  The Irish Rovers, in town as special  guest stars on The Beachcombers, will  give a concert on Gibsons Wharf on  Monday, June 2.

In fact the matter is  carefully in hand and I can  report that I ran a quarter of a  mile last night, which was  Friday. It was all down hill  from Highway 101 to Lowej-  Road in Robert's Creek by way'  of Largo Road but was a'  quarter of a mile of running  which was unpremeditated  and enjoyed and who knows  what it may yet lead to.  1 have been asked in  various quarters, however,  what happened to the 'perfect  pups' and since, yesterday, I  delivered the last of the little  charmers to its new home in  Roberts Creek this may be an  appropriate time to close the  chapter.  We discovered three  weeks after their birth under  the house that they were ten in  number. Five were black and  white like their border collie  mother, five were a light tan in  colour. Three of each colour  were males, two of each  colour, naturally, females.  One black and white male was  short haired like his father and  one tan male was longer  haired, like his mother.  The short haired black and  white pup to my surprise was  the first one taken. He seemed  to my eye to be the least  attractive of the ten but he  won the heart of the first little  girl who came to see them and  was the first to go. Once they  started to go they went unbelievably quickly. They went  to Gibsons and they went to  Sechelt and they went to  Roberts Creek.  The last one claimed was  a lovely little bitch, light  golden with the white head,  neck and chest markings of  the collie. She was also the  first one claimed three claimants wanted and then couldn't  take before fellow-worker  John Moore, who had gruffly  insisted there would be no  dogs for him, weakened before the subtle pressures of his  lady and the little golden lady  became little Nell. First  Sunday morning after the  transfer he came to work and  growled at me: "I've been up  since seven o'clock, playing  puppy games," and yesterday  he was seen entering the  office with his camera in his  teeth so it is apparent that the  training of the dog is well in  hand in that establishment,  don't you think?  Because I have dogs and  because 1 have written about  them there are those who feel  I must be some sort of expert,  which I am not, but I have  been around dogs for many  years and it has occurred to  me that there may be some  observations I can make which  would be of aid to the first-  time dog owners.  In the first place, as  witness Moore and his camera, there should be some  attempt made by the dog  owner to think like a dog, to  understand the animal. The  wild model is that of the wolf  and I think it helps to realize  that to the dog the family that  he lives with is his wolf pack.  This doesn't mean that mum  and dad and the kids must all  undertake the chasing of  rabbits, this for Moore's  benefit, but rather that the  wolf pack is a structured and  integrated social group with  very definite rules and your  puppy is going to expect to  learn the rules of the group.  There are those who feel that  nothing but equal treatment  should be afforded and it is  sure that if he can your pup  will want to share your bed  with you, or your bedroom, or  the couch, or whatever he can  get away with. It is not un-  kindness to deny him these  an.', in fact, he or she will do  perti-rtly well with his own  place -mtside the home altogether.  What a dog needs is food  and exercise, these it must  have. An unexercised dog will  always find trouble. Apart  from food and exercise there  must be some clearly defined  rules of conduct. I find it absolutely unacceptable to walk  around personally tied to a  leash but this means that my  dogs must come when I call  them and must walk at my  MMMMNMM  heel in situations where such  is required for safety or social  decency.  I would recommend for  the beginning dog-owner that  the obedience classes which  are held locally periodically  are well worth attending, if  there are children involved in  the exercise of bringing up  puppy they too would benefit  from taking the obedience  course with their pet.  Basically the animal  wants to know the rules, it  wants to please but it behooves the owner to have a  clear idea what is deemed to  be acceptable behaviour and  then set about the business of  finding out through reading,  there are helpful books in pet  stores, or through obedience  training classes how to set  about the business of conveying the desired behaviour  patterns to the dog.  One thing is sure: there  are few more enjoyable experiences than the ownership  of a good dog and few more  frustrating than owning a dog  which is not adequately  trained.  I've always found that  gentle firmness is the best  approach. I would not want a  dog which was continually  cowering in submission. I like  them sprightly and full of fun.  Neither do I have the patience  to deal with a dog which is forever in danger of getting itself  killed. They can be prevented  from chasing cars or bicycles  or people and must be. If not,  they should be humanely and  promptly disposed of.  Pack some doggie biscuits in your pocket and  always reward obedience and  consistently oppose disobedience. Good luck to all puppy  owners.  President Carter has been  labelled an ineffective decision maker not only by his  political enemies but by his  friends as well. It is interesting to note however that it is  precisely on those issues that  the President has refused to  make a decision that he has  been most successful. In that  fact lies an important lesson  for us all: don't be afraid to  have the courage to leave  things alone.  Several months back, Carter  vowed to devote the greater  part of his energy to getting  the American hostages in Iran  released. He got busy making  decisions left and right. He  sent ambassadors here and  navies there. He made speeches, issued threats, begged,  pleaded, warned and fumed,  all to no avail. What he did  manage to do was get people  so worked up that the American public is frustrated to the  point of near hysteria. When  asked by an interviewer what  the American government  should do about the hostages,  one young American said they  should bomb the Iranians.  What he actually said was  "Nuke 'em till they glow". I  suspect he was expressing the  sentiments of a great part of  the population.  The point here is, of course,  that by making a whole series  of decisions concerning the  hostages, Carter has only  managed to elevate the issue  to one upon which the American public has staked its  pride, patriotism and sense of  self-esteem.  The Cuban refugee problem  is another issue where too  many decisions have hurt the  President. A few weeks ago he  decided that the United States  would welcome Cuban Refugees.

I pause with razor poised, scowling derision  Al the mirrored man whose beard needs my attention,  And once more ask him why  He still stands ready, with a boy's presumption,  To court the queen in her high silk pavilion.  Robert Graves  40,000th had arrived in  Florida he quickly made  another decision - they could  come only after being interviewed by American immigration officials.  Ironically, President Castro,  who sits in his office in  Havana making no decisions  whatever is reaping the  benefits of ridding his country  of all kinds of undesirables at  n time of great potential  unemployment resulting from  the sugar crop failure.  * - :���  The one issue in which  President Carter has been  successful is in the Primary  election campaign. For the  past six months he has dbne  nothing at all. He has diligently and deliberately avoided  making any decisions about  campaigning and by doing so  he has pretty well wrappedup  the nomination. Given his  track record, if he had made  any decisions concerning the  election campaign, Edward  Kennedy would be on his way  to the White House.  Take a look for a moment at  what the truly successful  political leaders have been  doing this year. What did the  Ayatollah do when he #as  asked to resolve the hostage  problem? He hopped on a  plane and went to the city of  Qum and refused to make any  decisions at all. When he was  asked to put the hostages  under the protection of the  Iranian government, he went  into the hospital to have ah  operation. And who has Who  over a barrel? Is it Carter the  decision maker or Khomeni  the calm and detached pro-  crastinator?  Castro's success, as Was  pointed out, has also come  largely as a result of his stoic  refusal to make decisions.  When Cubans flocked to the  Peruvian Embassy he shrugged; when boats from  Florida arrived in Cuba he  smiled; when Carter told him  the refugees had to be screened by immigration officers He  just sat back and lit another  cigar.  It's a sad thing that indecision has fallen into such  disrepute. When given., a  choice between equally V*-  pleasant alternatives, mcijt  people just can't resist deciding on one of them. The  world would be a whole let  safer place if we didn't place  such a high value on tlje  ability to make a decision, but  I wonder if anyone will ri-  member when the next election rolls around that 1480 was  the year of the success of ndij-  decision. Letters to the Editor  Lee explains his opposition  Editor:  It matters not, who wriggles  and obfuscates, the 1980  S.C.R.D. budget "bottom  line" was a 27% increase in  direct taxation, as far as my  research goes the worst in  B,C.  .Unlike federal and provincial budgeting we cannot  uke deficit budgets, I am  decerned that this tremendous hike did not contain a  single grant to worthy causes,  such as youth, fitness, or constrictive policies to broaden  rather than raise the tax base.  I am determined to find some  answers.  The school board was infuriated that I refused to give  any undertaking to provide  them with more joint use  funds until such time as I  proved we could afford it. This  prompted thinly veiled intimidation, and sneering remarks  as to the "minimal amount"  of $100,000 from thine and  mine pockets, probably a  normal response noting this  amount as roughly one hundredth of the school budget but  it happens to be one tenth of  the regional budget, and one  third of our three mill funding.  A smart device making it  unnecessary to get public  permission to spend certain  funds.  The funding ofthe joint use  has never been before the  public, and  it should have  been. Only five, including the  S.C.R.D., of the twenty nine  regional boards operate joint  use of schools. So far we have  contributed about a quarter of  a million dollars directly to  school building, the rationale  being "we will build a bigger  gym, or whatever in order that  adults and children can use  them". The Minister of Education must bust his sides  laughing, socking it to us  whilst patting the provincial  two hundred and fifty million  surplus. I have listened to  platitudes about the "best use  of public money" until I could  throw up. The questions are  pertinent, does the public  have any spare money, and if  so do they wish to blow it to  underwrite the Victoria  surplus?  Another couple of kicks in  the head for the citizens, when  they have submitted to involuntary financial surgery, do  they get any relief? No  damned way, they pay for the  use of the gym or whatever,  for maintenance in perpetuity.  The position that all fundings  come from the same source is  an obfuscated crock. They are  very selective, in this case  aimed at the local taxpayers.  Those who don't pay taxes  don't get off either. It is  loaded into local goods and  services as a commercial  must.  1 repeat what  I  said at  Regional Board: - I object to  joint use of schools funding  and 1 object to joint office  funding until such time as my  in-depth financial study is  completed and found to be  practical by the finance  committee.  Quite a heady week, for the  people of the S.C.R.D. The  Board Chairman Ed Nicholson  set the A.V.I.M. to rights as to  the place in the sun of the  Regional District. The finance  chairman in company with  Mayor Derrick Humphries of  West Vancouver having pressed the municipal finance  authority learns that the  Provincial Government has for  the first time agreed to buy  out the entire sixty two million  dollar regional board bond  issue, a saving of a half a  million dollars issue costs and  a reduction in bank debts and  individual tax savings. Justifying Chairman Ed's declaration  of confidence in his finance  chairman. Kinda sorry Ed is  going away.  I recommend the school  boards press for direct funding if they have a justifiable  case of necessity, and thus  avoid the mendicant attitudes  currently displayed. It can be  done. The Provincial Government can be leaned on.  Charles Lee  Regional Director Area"C"  Heartwarming in the midst of crisis  Editor:  To prove that the world is  not all that bad to live in, here  is a little story that may have  been overlooked.  .It took place in London,  England, at the time of the  hostage taking episode at the  Iranian Embassy. Not a very  good location to have been in  at the time and hardly the sort  of place one would expect to  find a story which, to some  people anyway, shows that  despite all the violence that  we hear about these days,  human beings are not all that  bad after all,  Next door to the Iranian  Embassy there is another  house having a window loose  on the ground floor. The house  was occupied by the police at  the time of the hostage taking  and the window box was home  for a duck sitting on a clutch of  eggs. During the occupation  the duck was fed bread and  milk and a foam mattress was  placed underneath the nest in  case the eggs were displaced  at the time of the explosion.  Mrs. duck flew away to  Kensington Park which is  close by, when the explosion  took    place    but    returned  immediately afterwards and  continued her egg sitting vigil.  The B.B.C., the British  equivalent of our CBC zoomed  in on the nest with their  cameras during the siege to  show our duck heroine snug as  a bug in a rug on her nest,  quite unconcerned about the  crazy antics of homo sapiens.  The hatching out of the eggs  and how the young birds will  get to the lake in Kensington  Park may be material for a  sequel to this story.  John Hind Smith  Salvation Army defended  Editor:  >, Re your correspondent Dee  Cee and his long tirade  against the Salvation Army -  1 would like to refute a few of  .his remarks.  . First let me say that I have  no connections with, and have  never had any dealings with  the above organization. The  information I have comes  from people I know and trust.  ������.In the first world war my  brother could never speak  highly enough of the S.A.  When other so-called charitable organizations expected to  be paid for every little service  rendered, the Salvation Army  met the soldiers whenever  they came out of the trenches,  wet, cold and miserable, and  gave them hot coffee, (he  didn't say "coloured water")  and FREE food.  . In the second world war, my  nephew seconded his remarks  with the greatest enthusiasm,  fie had nothing but the  highest praise for the S.A. and  the work they did for the  troops.  Mr. Dee Cee mentions  three men whom he claims  think the same way he does.  To none of them I give much  credence.  Bernard Shaw was a man  given to making outrageous  statements, generally with his  tongue in his cheek for the  express purpose of annoying  people. Jack London was an  alcoholic and a man of questionable character. The third  man who worked on the Ripple  Rock affair is apparently  also an alcoholic.  The S.A. have a great  repugnaii.v for alcohol and  surrounded as they are by  an   endless   procession   of  drunks, junkies and free  loaders, it would not be  surprising if occasionally they  get a little impatient.  I am sorry for Dee Cee and  his experiences, real or  imaginary but undoubtedly  exaggerated. If the purpose  of his article was to denigrate  the Salvation Army, it defeated its purpose because of  the spite  and  venom  that  dripped from every word.  He would have been more  successful if he had stated  his grievances in milder  language and given some  credit to the very real good  done by the much maligned  Salvation Army.  Yours truly  (Miss) Margaret Mclntyre  Coast News thanked  Editor:  I just want to say thanks for  letting us come in and look  around. I had lots of fun.

Thought you also might like to  read it. Maybe this is already  well known but not lo me.  Taken from "The Kingdom  Digest" April 1980  "The 'refined', the 'rich', the  professional 'do-nothing', the  'distiller of quintessence' desire  only the peculiar, and sensational, Ihe eccentric, thc  scandalous in today's art. And  I, myself, since the advent of  cubism, have fed these fellows  what they wanted and satisfied  these critics with all the  ridiculous ideas that have  passed through my head. Thc  less they understood, the more  they admired me! .. Today, as  you know, I am celebrated, I  am rich. But when I am alone, I  do not have the effrontery to  consider myself an artist at all,  not in the grand meaning of the  word.... I am only a public  clown, a mountebank. I have  understood my time and exploited the imbecility, the  vanity, the greed of my contemporaries. It is a bitter  confession, this confession of  mine, more painful than it may  seem. But, at least, and at last,  it does have the merit of being  honest.  Picasso"  Sent from Mrs. G.E. Webb  Glassford Press Ltd. is  pleased to announce the appoint'  men! of Allan J.

'In the latter half of the Forties,  (here were al least two dozen of  ithcm working in the B.C.  Woods. The majority were  veterans and their common  disability limited them to this  single job. Denied the latitude  of opportunity open to more-  forlunate men, they tried  harder. As a result, they gained  thc reputation of being the best  and most conscientious signalmen in the business. Van-  couvcr artist Dave Kydd. in his  youth, was a member of this  select group.  I >nve was born in the In-  tcrioi hut moved lo Vancouver  wiih Ins lamily when he was  live veals old.

He was forced lo lake  the sort of starvalion-wage  work that nobody else wanted.  1947 found him running a small  switchboard in a rundown  office-building for 18 dollars a  week.  Several of Dave's friends  were now working in the  logging-camps and one of  l hem, concerned over his low  spirits, suggested that they hire  out to the Woods together.  "Ah, they'd never lake mc"said  Dave morosely.

"Just keep your  hand in your pocket and let me  do the talking." The proceded  to the Carrall Street hiring-  agencies and studied the blackboards where available jobs  were posted. There seemed to  be no openings in the whistle-  punk (or signalman) category  but a chaser was needed to  unhook logs on a slack-line  machine at Copper Canyon.  The agent seemed most anxious  to fill this position and Dave's  partner agreed to go out to the  Vancouver Island camp providing his friend were also hired  as a spare signalman. The agent  went along wilh il. Partners  generally stayed longer and he  got paid by the man anyhow.  Copper Canyon in the latter  Forties, was a big locomotive  show employing several hundred men. It was Dave Kydd's  maiden camp. He was assigned  initially to the bull-gang, a  group of about ten men. Their  task was to rig-up spartrees  ahead of the yarding-crews  with the aid of a mobile  donkey-engine that rode on the  railroad tracks and was called a  goat. The work was frequently  strenuous but Dave threw his  back into it along with the rest,  pulling endless strawline to  position the thicker cables;  manhandling the heavy straps  and blocks. The gang-boss was  a gruff-spoken old cuss and a  bit of a tyrant. But he proved  sympathetic to the game kid  with the gimpy arm and soon  assigned him to easier work.  One of his chief tasks was to  carry buckets of railroad-  spikes out to the guyline-  stumps where they were used to  secure the spartree's bracing  cables.  GRAN-E-THON  MAY 25th  2:00 P.M.

Dave remembers one incident vividly. "There was this  guy on the crew they called  Whiskeyjack. I guess it was  around the third day. We'djust  got through raising a tree with a  gin-pole for lift and the guy-  lines were all spiked. We were  finished with the pole and the  hooktender wanted it down  so he sent Whiskyjack to fall  the damn thing. I guess he  didn't know much about falling. The bloody tree went  backwards on him and toppled  in towards the spar. I was about  three-quarters ofthe way out to  one of the guy-stumps to pick  up leftover spikes and the old  hooker was close by me,  looking things over. Goddamn  gin-pole hit the spar, the butt  rolled and it came sliding down  the guyline right for us. All you  could see was smoke and  brilliant red powder. The  hooker hollered out: "Dive!"  and we damn well dived. The  tree slid right down the guy and  shattered against the stump.  Guess it was my first close  shave. After that, Whiskyjack's  name was "Wrong-way Corri-  gan!"  Dave's stay on the bull-gang  was brief. A punk on one of the  yarding-crews was fired for  blowing a wrong whistle and  nearly killing his hook-tender.  Dave was sent to take the  careless signalman's place. It  was a cold-deck machine 1000  feet or so from the trackside.  Here the logs were stacked in a  huge pile and later swung in by  means of a skyline to the  loading spar.   To be continued  HIE  MBtBi  lAliniili(iin ,s  ��   Astrology  At the Twilight  The comedy film The Jerk  will continue at the Twilight  Theatre for another three days  this week. The comedy,  starring Steve Martin, will  be shown till Friday, May 23.  The second film of the week  The Fog, is a straightforward  ghost story in the tradition of  Edgar Allan Poe or H.P.  Lovecraft. Director John Carpenter has portrayed the  citizens ofthe California resort  town of Antonio Bay, led by  Kathy Williams (Janet Leigh),  who are planning great things  for the community's centennial. An old salt, however,  named Captain Machen tells  an ominous tale of a century-  old shipwreck and the pre  dicted return of the ghosts  of vengeance-seeking sailors.  The town's Episcopal  priest, played by Hal Hol-  brook, discovers a diary  which shows that the honoured founders of Antonio Bay  were thieves and murderers.  Sure enough, when the fog  rolls in people begin to die  at the hands of wet and  shadowy creatures.  Beside the performances of  Holbrook and Leigh, the film  has a strong central performance from Adrienne Bsrbeau  as the owner-operator of the  local radio station. The Fog  will be shown at the local  cinema Saturday through  Tuesday, May 24-27.  Vernon concert scheduled  for this weekend  by Susan Elek  Whenever Lyn Vernon gives  a concert on the Sunshine  Coast, it is an event of great  excitement, friends and fans  turning out in droves to hear  the local gal who "made  good". On Sun. May 25 at  8:00 p.m. in the Elphinstone  Gymnasium Lyn will be featured as soloist in the 9th  Countryside Concert of the  year, accompanied by Bruce  OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK  Vernon on guitar, and myself  on the piano.  When Lyn and I talked  about our program many  months ago, I confessed to  having a fairly severe case of a  somewhat uncommon disease,  "Classical Musicitus". But  she, without flinching, hauled  out of her library of music,  everything from Rogers and  Hammerstein to Carlo Menotti  With a sprinkling of Benjamin  Britten and Gordon Lightfoot  in between.  Happily, our program has  turned out to be a treat in  many ways, my favourites  being the Wagner Song Cycle  "Wesendonk Lieder" set to  some very beautiful poems by  Mathilde Wesendonk.  There will surely be a few  spine-tingling moments a-  mong these works. And then  there are the old favourites  "Summertime", by Gershwin  and "Old Man River",  "classics" in their own right,  plus several other more popular selections, which will be  accompanied by Bruce.  Lyn's background is, by  now, familiar to most of you,  but for those new to the Coast,  Lyn's far-reaching experiences include roles with the  Canadian Opera Co. the  Vahcoittir Opera Association,  the'English National Opera,  the Edmonton Opera Co., the  Australian Opera Co. and  appearances at the National  Arts Centre in Ottawa, the  Guelph Spring Festival, Oper-  nhaus Zurich, the Grand  Theatre de Geneve, the Oper-  nhaus Berne and the Teatro  Massimo in Palermo. Most  recently, Lyn was invited to  sing at the opening of the  newly formed Saskatoon Opera Co. Lyn is currently a  Sunshine Coast resident and  teaches voice in Gibsons.

Vehicle parking  will be provided at both the  launching area in Trail Bay and  its counterpart at the head of  Porpoise Bay.  885-9666    SWaKSOlTS  L & H Swanson Ltd.  sand, oravei  Dump TnicHt  885-5333  Box 172,  Sechelt, B.C.  VON 3A0 Coast News, May 20, 1980  Off the shelf  by John Moore  ,, Those of you who got a kick  out of the grouchy grouse who  had a starring role in last  week's "Wildlife Corner"  might want to get out your  binoculars and keep your eyes  peeled for an even rarer type,  the Pinnacle Grouse. The  Pinnacle Grouse is invariably  found circling the top of a hill,  and it flys in one direction  only. It does this because it  only has one wing. The colour  of its plumage varies according to the season and the condition of the observer.  While you're at it, you  might spot a specimen of the  Goofus Bird; you'll recognize  it because it flies backwards  and builds its nest upside  down. Since you're looking at  the trees anyway, you might  even see a rare Upland Trout.  These unusual fish nest in  trees and are excellent fliers,  if a wee bit scared of water. If  you see any of these beasties,  call Ian Corrance. (I'll be out  walking my dog, a thoroughbred Axehandle Hound. It has  a head like a hatchet and a  body like an axe-handle, not  surprising since it lives on a  diet of pure axehandles.)  Like the birds and fish  above, the Axehandle Hound  is an imaginary animal of the  North American backwoods,  part of the Bunyanesque folklore of loggers and river-boat  men, and only a chapter in  The Book of Imaginary  Beings, a magical tour  through the world's imaginary  flora and fauna conducted by  the Argentine writer, Jorge  Luis Borges. (Penguin 1974  $1.25)  Borges'odd little book is by  ho means a complete catalogue of the world's nonexistent animals and other  beings. It's an eccentric work,  arranged more or less alphabetically, beginning with A  Bao A Qu, the spiritual beast  (hat inhabits the Tower of  Victory in Chitor, Malaya, and  ending with Zaratan, the Arab  version of Leviathan, the great  whale whose back appears to  sailors as an alluring island,  then sinks beneath the waves  and drowns them after they've  landed.  In between, you encounter  .not only some of the more  common garden variety classical and oriental monsters,  griffins, satyrs, fauns, manti-  .;cores, the Minotaur and  -hydra etc., but a good many of  the rarer unreal beings as  well. An ancient Chinese  .superstition, we are told, concerns the world of mirrors and  .its inhabitants. Once the world  of mirrors and this world were  not cut off from one another as  they are now; you could come  and go through the mirror as  in Carroll's Through The  Looking Glass. But one night  the mirror people invaded this  world and only the magic  powers of the Yellow Emperor  drove them back through the  mirrors. There he imprisoned  them, forcing them to slavishly mimic the actions of anyone  who comes to the mirror. But  little by little, the story goes,  they will begin to revolt, and  one day they will break  through the glass prison and  invade the world again. In  some versions of the tale, the  sound of weapons clashing  will be heard from deep in thc  mirrors before the invasion  begins.  Borges is widely and unpredictably read, which makes  for interesting reading because he's done all the dirty  work, plodding through  weighty and largely boring  volumes to pick out the pearls.  The Book of Imaginary' Beings  reminds us that a child's imaginary pets and playmates  aren't so strange after all,  compared to our fantasies.  For something a little more  conventional but just as entertaining, you could try T.H.  White's translation of a 12th.  Century Mediaeval Bestiary,  called simply The Bestiary. In  its time, this was a serious  scholarly catalogue of all the  animals believed to exist, or to  have existed, in the world.  Most of the animals, birds and  fish described are, in fact, real  or at least are garbled descriptions of real animals.  But, scattered at random  among the real beasts are the  Griffin, the Unicorn, Sirens,  Satyrs, the Basilisk and the  Dragon. Profusely footnoted  and illustrated with line  drawings based on the original  illuminated illustrations, the  book is a mine of bizarre  information; fact, hearsay,  and outright fable. Centaurs,  for instance, are said to exist,  as creatures in which the  nature of men and horses are  mixed, but a footnote states  that another authority has refuted this, pointing out that  the life-span of men and  horses differs, so that a  man-horse would find one end  of him dying of old age while  the other was in its prime.  The Unicorn, and the  method of capturing one of  these rare beasts, is described  as follows: "He is a very small  animal like a kid, excessively  swift, with one horn in the  middle of his forehead and no  hunter can catch him. But he  can be trapped by the following strategem... A virgin girl  is led to where he lurks, and  there she is sent off by herself  into the wood. He soon leaps  into her lap when he sees her,  and embraces her, and hence  he gets caught."  The Unicorn, for all his  diminutive size.fights with  elephants and conquers them  by wounding them in the  belly. In his love of purity, he  is compared to Christ, for the  The Bestiary is more than a  work of natural history. It is a  moral compendium as well,  each animal symbolizing some  virtue or vice and serving as a  teaching model for the reader.  The Bestiary hearkens back to  a time when science and  religion were not adversaries  seeking to discredit one  another. Ironically, just as  science appeared to have won  thc day and began to suffer  from inter-disciplinary conflicts, astrophysics and metaphysics have begun to creep  tentatively back toward one  another with gestures of reconciliation.  You may have noticed that I  failed to mention the most  interesting fabulous beastie of  them all; Draco the Dragon,  the Worm, the Great Serpent;  the fire-breathing, maiden-  munching, gold-hoarding  emblem of the Archfiend  himself. Last year a number of  large format books were published, almost simultaneously  on this subject. I' m in the  process of wading through  them all to compare them in a  series of reviews. (By the way,  if you see a Dragon, don't  contact Ian or me. Call the  White Tower Mediaeval Society. They'll know what to do  with it.) All for now.  Chamber  meets  The Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce will  hold a most important general  meeting on Wednesday, May  21.  Outgoing President Ante  Pettersen urges a good attendance since the main business  of the meeting will be the  election of the executive for  the Chamber of Commerce  for the coming year.  Also on the agenda are brief  reports from the President,  from Pamela Ryan on the  Gibsons Grand Prix cycle race,  from Jon McRae on the  Dogfish Derby, and from  Gary Puckett on the Sea  Cavalcade.  The meeting will be held at  8:00 p.m. at the Gibsons  Legion Hall.  Here is one of the reasons that the playing fields in Gibsons are not always as they  should be. On Tuesday evening the bleachers at Brothers Park were pulled down and  the field was torn up by a vehicle (one week after construction). For more details see  the police news.  Carefree gardening  by Sandy Loam  With so many sundecks,  atriums, and terraces now in  evidence, containers, tubs,  planter pots and old fashioned  window boxes are taking over  from flower gardens in many  areas. The advantages accruing to this type of gardening  are fewer weeds, easier  cultivating, less stooping, no  slugs and more concentrated  fertilizing. Your garden can be  filled with low maintenance  shrubs and all the colour can  be contained by the planters.  If a plant gets doggy or stops  blooming it can be shoved into  a corner and easily replaced  by another more successful  pot. These are really portable  gardens with the always  flowering planters placed near  where most of the reading,  loafing and entertaining is  done. The disadvantages are  the constant watering and  fertilizing required by root  bound plants. Don't go away  for a few weeks without  lending your garden to a good  friend or neighbour.  You can easily make your  own tub, non-portable, any  size, by knocking four boards  together into a rectangle or  square, staining them, toss  them on the cement and fill  with soil. A good mixture for  tubs is '/i garden loam, the  rest made up of equal parts  sand, peat moss and manure  or whatever you can lay your  hands on made more useful  with weekly doses of fish  fertilizer.  I have seen almost every  thing grown in tubs but for  sheer gaiety I find myself  sticking to 2 or 3 Geraniums  (pink or mauve, salmon and  crimson mixed with deep blue  trailing Lobelia or sometimes  Schizanthus. In other gardens  I have admired more definite  colour schemes such as red  and white petunias or purple  and white pansics. Dripping  Nepeta is lovely for hanging  baskets (must be watered  every day) and expensive,  exotic begonias or charming  Impatiens, for shaded areas.  For my own garden I prefer  both colours and plants to run  rampant and I am inclined to  accommodate the borders to  the plants rather than the  more logical, other way  around.  Pansies are looking particularly plump and delicious  this year with their sunny little  pussy cat faces and magnificent range of colours.  Please   remember   to   keep  picking up your pansics as  well as your sweet peas. Thc  more you pick the more you  will have. Sweet Peas and  Pansies give you that once in a  while chance to be a real  sport. Everywhere you go you  can arrive with a lovely  bouquet for your friend or  hostess, lonely sick person in  hospital or elderly shut-in...  clutching your fragrant little  bunch of flowers and smiling,  you can be someone else's ray  of sunshine. Really it is a good  idea to pluck the deaders from  all your plants. You want the  plant energy to go to producing more flowers rather  than ripening and nourishing  seeds.  Last week 1 found annuals  and Geraniums to be less  expensive at Caseys Country  Garden in Sechelt but shrubs  were less at Quality Farm in  Gibsons so pay yer nickle and  take yer chance.

Maybe because  we no longer call the village  Gibson's Landing we lose  sight of the obvious implication that someone named  Gibson made landfall here and  so are not curious about the  circumstances.  It seems to me that a  community which loses touch  with its roots, loses its birthright, ils real identity, its  sense of iiself and Its sense of  direction.  As May 24 is the 94th anniversary of the landing of the  Gibson "Mayflower" this  seems a good time to re-tell  Ihe story.  George William Gibson was  born in Lincoln, England in  1829. When he retired from a  career in the Royal Navy with  thc rank of lieutenant his  home was In Ontario with his  wife Charlotte, two sons and  six daughters. Free of the  routine ol navy life he apparently now relished thc opportunity lo branch out for  himself and fulfil a long  pent-up need for his own  land. So instead of spending  his retirement years with  a little fishing, gardening  maybe and recounting his  naval exploits around the  pot-bellied stove in the general store to while away  the winter, he brought his  family west in 1885 to the  infant settlement soon to  become Vancouver and the  challenge of carving a new life  out ofthe bush.  Vancouver at that time was  still a dream in the  minds  of Mr. Van Home, General  Manager of the CPR and Mr.  Alexander Hamilton the Land  Commissioner for same company. Now  that it had been  decided lo bring the railway  terminal to the little village  of Granville, which comprised  a row of whitewashed buildings along the shoreline of  Burrard Inlet and a hinterland  of a few blocks of swamp and  forest debris, blackberries and  frogs,  these  two had plans  for a city five miles wide and  2   miles   deep,   which   Van  Home determined should be  named Vancouver.  George Gibson found work  at the Hastings sawmill  and began a search for land  on which to settle. You'd  have thought the winds of  change blowing around Burrard Inlet were exciting  enough. but apparently  George Gibson was looking  for a place of his own away  from the burgeoning city.  Early in 1886, as the process  of incorporation for the new  city was begun, George and  his sons George Jr. and  rtalph wen! lo Nanaimo where  ihey bought $30.00 worth of  lumber from J.W. Bell and  built a sloop, the "Swamp  Angel" in which they proposed to explore the inner  coast of Vancouver Island.  Returning from an expedition to Oyster Bay near  Ladysmith in May 1886, the  tiny craft was caught in a  storm and the strong south  easterly winds blew them  across the Strait to the west  ern entrance of Howe Sound.  They found the sheltered bay  in the lee of Keats Island and  stayed overnight. Next morning they crossed to look at  the little bay behind the  headland and decided that far  from being an ill wind, they  had found what they were  looking for.  If, in your minds eye you  see a sheltered bay with a  forest of giant trees clothing  the hill and standing trunk to  trunk along the shore, a  natural idyl untouched by  man, it wasn't quite like that.  Lumber was in great demand  in the fledgling communities  and loggers from the sawmill  at Moodyville on the north  shore were already ranging far  afield in their search for  accessible timber and a skid  road terminating in a chute  near the present wharf ran  as far back through the bush  as Payne Creek.  Il was before the time of  Crown grants and land could  be obtained without deposit,  though settlers were expected  to show $500 improvements  over a period of years.  On that May 24th morning  in 1886 George Gibson drove  a stake into the ground  pre-empting District lot 686,  some 160 acres stretching  roughly from Winn Road to  Gibson Creek and inland to  North Road. George Jr.  laid claim to Lot 685 from  Winn Road south, and Ralph  decided on Pasley Island,  between Barfleur and Colling-  wood Channels.  George Gibson proceeded  to build a house, bringing  the lumber from Vancouver  sometimes a few boards  at a time by row boat, coming  up Saturday and returning  Sunday. The early settlers  thought nothing of rowing  to Vancouver and would  probably be horrified at the  fuss we make about ferries.  Before the year was out the  family moved in, bringing  their furniture on a scow  towed by the tug "Etta  White".  If you want to know more  about the founding families,  the Chamberlins, Fletchers,  Glassfords, Hopkins, Petersons,  Soames,   Winegardens  and many others, "The  Gibson's Landing Story"  by Lester R. Peterson has  recently been reprinted in  paperback.  So when the City of Vancouver celebrates its first 100  years since incorporation  Gibson's will also celebrate  the 100th anniversary of the  arrival of its founding fathers  in the "Swamp Angel".  Is it too soon to begin  thinking of ways in which  we can honour the courage,  vision and energy of those  first settlers, a celebration  which will enhance the pride  and self-respect which is the  backbone of a happy, flourishing community'  Egmont News  Shayne Davis, Museum Assistant Ian Stewart  and teacher Marta MacKown filming "A Trip Through  Time" at the Elphinstone Pioneer Museum.  Museum worth visit  by John Moore  Anytime is a good time lo  visit thc niphinstone Pioneer  Museum in Gibsons, but this  week is particularly appropriate. This coming Saturday,  May 24, is the 94th Anniversary  of the morning George Gibson  and his two sons, Ralph and  George Jr., sailed into the bay.  They had spent the night in the  shelter of Keats Island, driven  to the mouth of Howe Sound  by a south-east wind blowing in  Georgia Strait, and in the  morning they crossed the  channel and entered the Harbour that would bear the family  name.  Exhibits at the Museum  range from a property stake  bearing the carved name of  George Gibson, (possibly one  of thc original stakes), numerous relics ofthe early logging  operations that supported the  settlers, pioneer household  items and furniture, to an old-  fashioned trolling skiff built by  Roberts Creek author Hubert  Evans, a native racing canoe,  fine examples of the fading art  of native basketwork and a  collection of stone tools that  has been praised by visiting  archeologists.  One of the Museum's finest  collections is of historic photographs of the area. The cataloguing of this collection has  just recently been completed.  Sets of slide copies of the  photographs have also been  prepared for the School District's Resou.ce Centre, which  not only gives students and  teachers easy access to the  material, but insures that the  photographs will not be lost  should anything ever accidentally happen to the originals.  "I'm glad we were able to do  thc cataloguing of the photographs," said Dave Helem,  Coordinator of Educational  Resources at the Resource  Center and now newly-elected  President of the Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum Society, "and  having a second copy at the  Resouce Centre is nice too, just  in case."  Helem replaces outgoing  President Sheila Kitson and  looks forward to a challenging  term in his new office.  "It's going to be an interesting period for the Museum,"  Helem says. "Ian Stewart, who  works at the Museum, has  some good ideas and is very  enthusiastic. We're looking at  expanding the Museum's quarters, because we want to display  as many of the items as  possible, but that's only in the  initial planning stage right now  and depends on what the  Village is going to do. Right  now we're concerned about  getting more showcases lo  display the smaller items,  improving the arrangement of  the exhibits and lighting them  better."  The Museum had considered  holding an open house and  serving refreshments on the  24th, but decided not to  because the date conflicts with  the Sunshine Coast Arts Council's Inter-Action Auction  being held that afternoon at  Elphinstone Secondary School.  The Museum is open, however,  Monday through Saturday,  from 8:30 a.m. to Noon and  1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.  While I visited the Museum,  teacher Marta MacKown and  Grade 11 Social Studies students from Elphinstone were on  hand taping a program to be  called "A Trip Through Time".  The program, a video-tour of  the plphinstone Pioneer Museum conducted by students  Kevan Van Velzen and Shayne  Davis, will be shown on Coast  Cable Ten this Wednesday at  6:30 in the Gibsons area, if it's  ready. If not, Ms. MacKown  says Coast Ten may broadcast  some of the interviews with  long-time residents of the  community taped last year and  "A Trip Through Time" will be  shown the following Wednesday at the same time.  by Jon Van Arsdell  Long time residents Gene  and Vi Bernzten, who live  smack dab in the middle of our  thriving community, held a  family reunion last weekend.

No,  these are deeper wounds  which will be with me as long  as I draw breath and, perhaps  it is as well that such is the  case as that way I will never  forget and it will be a constant  reminder to me not only of  how foolish 1 was and always  have been, but act as a deterrent to make certain I don't in  some weak moment repeat the  mistakes by asking for a  replay of those events.  If I have learned nothing  it is the fact that, unwilling as  we may be to admit it, life  seems to follow a certain  pattern in spite of ourselves  and what we may try to do to  disrupt or change our fate,  be it for good or bad. I certainly have no faith in astrology - I think it is so much  hokum second only to religion,  but I do have to admit in my  own particular case that one  would imagine a good deal of  what happened to be appeared  to be as if it was all prearranged and I, a bewildered  actor on the stage of life, unwilling, unrehearsed and unaware even of what the play  was all about or why I was  there.  I think it would make  dismal reading indeed were I  to attempt to chronicle a day  by day, week be week recital  of how I lived, or rather existed, during the bitterly cold  months of January, February  and March, but one thing I  would like to point out,  although it was a grim struggle, I did exist and I proved  to myself that even if I was  lacking in willpower I possessed an unbelievable, st-  ubborness that stood me in  good stead not only then but  on subsequent occasions when  the going got tough. I could on  any occasion and at any time  have put an end to my suffering by wiring home for my return fare to England or asking  my parents for money to tide  me over but, as I have remarked, I was too stubborn to  do that and, although I had  little to be proud of, I still  could not bring myself to  admit to them I had once  more failed and failed miser-  - ably in making a go of it in this  New Land.

Apparently,  the story goes, an extremely  wealthy Frenchman, a Monsieur Merlin, left all or the  greater part of his estate to the  city on the condition that they  erect a shelter to house and  feed the indigents. It is of  course impossible to determine what this good gentleman had in mind but, as was  to be expected, the unimaginative bureaucracy went ahead  and erected a huge forbidding  red bricked fortress that would  make even the staunchest  hearted pause before entering. I had heard stories of this  hideous edifice and what went  on inside its walls and I was  well aware that it was shunned  as if it housed a leper colony,  but I attributed many of these  stories to the vivid imaginations of the raconteurs or  possibly to their sheer hatred  of any form of authority.  I spent one night there  and I can assure you that once  was enough! After a bone  chilling wait outside in below  freezing temperatures, the  doors were finally opened and  one by one we were admitted  inside. As one entered a long  hall (for a fleeting instant I  thought I was on my way to  the gallows and felt tempted  to turn and bolt outside( one  was told in both French and  English to disrobe ��� take  everything off - and shuffling  Gibsons Public  library  Tuesday  2-4p.m.  Wednesday  2-4p.m.  Thursday 2-4 & 7-9pm.

Now, naked as we came into  the world, we were egged forward (it is a blessing they  hadn't thought of electric  prods in those days) into  another enclosure where two  dour looking men were standing at each side of the entrance holding buckets of soft  soap, dark brown and almost  overpowering with the smell  of strong carbolic. A big dab  was placed on each individual's head and then on into  thc shower stalls where the  water was so bloody hot I  almost screamed when it hit  mc and was only in there long  enough for the soap to melt  and then got to hell out of  there resembling, I am sure,  an overdone lobster. Next a  coarse towel, a quick drying  off, towel into another basket  and on into the receiving room  where a long white nightshirt  was handed each of us and  barefoot into a huge room  where we sat on scrubbed  benches before long bleached  white wood tables on which, at  spaced intervals, were tin  mugs containing cocoa and  one large chunk of sweetish  bread about 3" thick.  On consuming this we  were aroused from our torpor  by the strident noise of a bell  which by its volume almost  shook us off the benches and,  in my particular case being a  newcomer, caused me to gaze  Please turn to Page Thirteen.

One does  not want to gorge oneself in the  middle of the day but sometimes one does want to present  something which makes a  slight change from mugged-up  soup and grilled cheese sandwiches.  So...with the question of oui  or non distracting my mind I  thought I'd give you a recipe  with a French background  which I find makes a splendid  luncheon dish and any leftovers are good munched cold  the next day.  TOURTIERE  Pastry for a two crust pie.  There are of course, many  recipes for perfect pastry. My  "thing" is not to use all  shortening, but to use half  margarine and half shortening  for general purpose pastry.  This gives me a good flaky  crust���but each to his own.  RECFPE OF THE  WEEK  Prepare the pastry for the pie  and put it in the fridge.  In  a  saucepan  place  the  following ingredients:���  1 lb. ground pork  1/4 cup chopped onion  1 chopped leek  1 tablespoon chives  1/4 teaspoon savory  salt & pepper to taste  a pinch of ground cloves  a minute sprinkle of nutmeg  1/4 cup of water  I bay leaf  Simmer the mixture uncovered for about twenty  minutes. Stir occasionally.  Allow the mixture to cool so  that you can remove the bay  leaf and skim off the fat.  Line a 9 in. pie plate with  pastry. Place in the filling then  cover with pastry and seal the  edges. Brush the top of the pie  with milk and make a few slits  on top. Bake at 425 degrees F  for about 25 minutes or until  golden brown.  Serve your Tourtiere with a  green salad���and french dressing���of course!  As a dessert, try strawberries tossed in plain yogurt  with just a sprinkle of sugar to  take off that "edge". Wash  your meal down with a light  wine.  Definitely a meal to which  one would say "Oui".  Nest Lewis  BON APPETI1  Day bv day, Item by item, we do more tor you in  prouiding uariety. quality and friendly serulce.

She is  much improved. The word is that we may be able to bring her home  about Wednesday, May 21, and we look forward to that.  Joyce would like to thank the many well-wishers who have sent  cards, flowers, or a verbal greeting via family members.  We have been together here from morning to night since she was  admitted. I know this sounds maudlin but it's brought on a special  renewal of our love affair, - almost as though we were "getting to  know" each other all over again. For this opportunity, literally forced  upon us, I am grateful.  "GETTING TO KNOW YOU" was a popular song a good while  back. The tune and title flashed through my mind one day recently  as we were holding hands and taling. I got to thinking about our life  together, the ups and downs, the good times and bad, and the  raising of our family to maturity.  I feel it is important that we "Get To Know" one another in our  personal relationships as well as in our jobs and business  relationships. If we don't properly "Get To Know" people, we  frequently make bad judgements about them. How often have we  had to change our first impressions or opinions, too hastily made,  about someone.  SHOP TALK was started for the purpose of having our  friends and patrons "Getting to Know Us" better. At a time when  food prices were rising rapidly (now we're used to it) and various  consumer activist groups were trying to make us out as the villain in  the piece, I felt we had to find a way for the public to get to know us. I  wanted to tell of our services, our policies, our problems, our  products and our aspirations.  PRESCRIPTION SERVICES  Last week we introduced a Pharmaceutical pick-up service to  commence on Thursday, May 22. This is an arrangement we have  concluded with the manager of Gibsons Clinic Pharmacy, Mr. John  Shaske.  Why do we do this? Simply stated, we know that the large walk-in  traffic residing in Lower Gibsons needs a pharmacy. We are not  trying to promote any specific pharmacy, even though our present  arrangement is with Gibsons Clinic Pharmacy.  The legal regulations have been checked and it is determined that  we cannot act as agents. The orders therefore must be placed with a  registered pharmacist and delivered, under his supervision, to the  customer. We cannot act as mediary in any way. Therefore we are  only offering our facilities, free of any financial consideration  whatever.  Mr. Shaske will take your orders up to 1 p.m. Thursday and deliver  them at 5:30 at our store, the same day. He must be met by the  customer at that time. We realize that this is a poor substitute, but il  the service is used it could lead to more frequent deliveries. The '  service could be particularly useful for repeat prescriptions and any  other related health needs.  My real hope is that with consumer support, it may lead to the  establishment of a drugstore in Lower Gibsons.

The proposal by Mr. Giannakos and Mr. Duffy was discussed and turned down  during the April 24th. Public  Utilities Committee meeting,  largely on the strength of Area  E Director Jim Gurney's  recommendation, as Chairman of the Waste Disposal  Committee, that the site  remain available for dumping  in the event of an emergency.  Other board members also  felt that a site nearby, off  Stewart Road near the route of  the proposed Gibsons Bypass, on which work had already been done, should be  used. The board had offered to  lend support to a re-application for use of this site  from the Department of  Highways.  "I have since visited this  site," Director Ed Nicholson  told the board, "and found it  to be completely unsuitable. It  was a long, narrow site, not  ideally suited to this kind of  track to begin with, and since  the original work was done the  whole area has been pretty  badly chewed up by people  driving four wheel drive  vehicles on the site. The way it  looks now, you'd never know  any work had been done  there."  Nicholson went on to  suggest that thc Gibsons  Waste Disposal site might be  able to accommodate such a  track without disturbing the  present dumpsite.  Planner Bill Lindsay pointed  out that only half the land  allocated for the dump site  had actually been cleared, so  room for a track might be  made, and observed that the  motorcycle association could  hold sanctioned meets which  would attract riders and  spectators to the area.  Area A Director Joe Harrison suggested that the board  would have to legally clear  itself  of   any   liability.  "We want to make it very  clear," Director Nicholson  said, "that there is no connection between motocross  racing and motorcycle gangs.  Motocross racing is a growing  competitive sport in which  riders bring their machines to  the track in trucks and trailers  to compete in organized  events. We support this kind  of activity."  Nicholson recommended,  and the board agreed, that a  Regional Planner, accompanied by Director Gurney  and Area F Director David  Hunter visit the site in order to  assess its suitability.

This year's event was arranged  by Terry Connor, who with his  many helpers provided rapid  service.  Powell River Golf Club  arrived bright and early  Sunday morning for the  annual tournament between  the two clubs. Sunshine Coast  managed a win on this first  encounter but I'm sure Powell  River is quite confident they  will turn the tables on our  return match later in the  summer.  The Men's Wednesday  Twilite provided some unique  scoring for their nine hole  game. Each two man team  was provided with a 15' length  of string. Each team was  permitted to use as much  string as would be required to  finish off putts, get out of a  trap, or improve a bad lie in  the rough. When the  string was used up, the team  had to finish the round with  skill only. The winners proved  to be Ken White and Peter  Power with a low net of 52.  The longest drive was hit by  Brian Leekie.  The senior men's Thursday morning match provided a  relaxed low net game, complete with hidden hole prizes.  Bob McKenzie won the low  net with a nice 66. Second was  Dave Hunter with a score of  67.  On Tuesday the ladies  played a Stableford Match.  Betty Laidlaw won the 18 hole  game with 43 points followed  by Leila Comrie with 40  points.

Discussion of the By-law at  Thursday night's meeting was  sparked by a request from  representatives of Porpoise  Enterprises Ltd. to address  the Planning Committee concerning the rescinded first  reading of a By-law that would  place part of District Lot 1558  into an Industrial 3 zone.  Porpoise Enterprises Ltd. is  presently extracting gravel for  use on road beds on the west  half of the site where the company is proposing to develop  some residential lots. The  company is seeking the Industrial 3 designation to  permit further gravel extraction on the east half of the  Director for Area C, where  the extraction is taking place,  Charles Lee has received a  number of complaints from  residents about the existing  operation and had requested  that the Regional Planner  send a "cease and desist"  letter to the property owner.  Regional Planner Bill Lindsay, having conferred with the  regional board's legal advisor,  informed the board that under  the existing by-laws a "stop  work order" might leave the  regional board open to a suit  by the owners for improperly  shutting down their operation.  "Right now anyone can  open up a gravel pit in his  back yard," Director Lee said,  "Do we need another gravel  pit in this area? I see no need  for one. I do see the un;  necessary rape of an unspoiled  piece of beautiful land. I see a  real public commotion building up over this."  As Director for Area C, Lee  recommended that the board  move as quickly as possible to  revise and reprocess the  stalled Soil Removal By-law.  The By-law was held up  because the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs found a proposed levy of a royalty based  on the tonnage of extracted  gravel and payable to the  regional district unacceptable.  A recommendation from the  Technical Planning committee  that the regional board request the Regional Resource  Management Committee of  the E.L.U.C. to undertake a  study to evaluate gravel  resources of the area, as well  as extraction methods and  transportation systems, was  rejected by the board.  "We went through this  seven years ago," Director  Almond said, "We know that  whole mountain is gravel."  Director. Lee pointed out  that supplies of gravel in  already existing pits are sufficient for many years to come.  Lee also pointed out that the  gravel  pits  contribute  very  886-7454  "Vumw tht Qnmm c��Mpy"  tin ��� Cjtif Hi  OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK J  NOTICE BOARD       ���  Sponsored as a Public Service by the Coast News.

Ro  ver  Continued from Page Seven,  wildly around the room for the  nearest exit as I was certain  the building was on fire and,  fire or no fire, my natural inclination was to beat a hurried  retreat even although I don't  imagine I would have got very  far out in the streets in my  bare feet and clothed angel-  like in a white nightgown!  However such was not to be as  we were then ushered into  another even larger room  which turned out to be a dorm-  HARBOUR  T^  itory with rows and rows of  double-decker steel beds, the  kind I was later to occupy  during the war years when, as  a fledgling member of the  R.C.A.F., I was quartered at  the Manning Pool in Toronto.  I spent a restless night.  There must have been a  hundred or more destitute  men in that dormitory and  between snoring, the coughing and wheezing and the  occasional loud report of  expelling gas, it was difficult  not only to get to sleep but to  stay in that condition.

After the war  The History of Egmont  I Uiniml VIII  l>\ Judv (iill  When the Japanese were  forced to leave their stores in  Egmont, I he government department in charge of thc  disposition of alien property  sold the businesses to the  Queen Charlotte Fishing Corn-  pan) which hired a series of  managers to run them. The  first. Shi.u. wis follow .ad by  Jack Parry, who was in turn  succeeded by George Binder.  These  were  the  people who  marked ration cards, collected  meat tokens and kept the  populace supplied as best they  could during thc difficult years  of the war.  Then, when the war was  finally over, when the waiting  and worrying were finished,  when thc last bazaar had been  held with the proceeds earmarked to provide aid to the  soldiers, the boys came home.  One little girl, upon being told  that her uncle had sailed from  Europe on the Queen Eliza-  Trie usual prize of $5.00 will be awarded to the first  person whose name is drawn from the barrel correctly  locating the above.

Last week's winner was Mark  Karpenko of Sechelt who correctly located the  pictured carved statue as being in Jamie Dixon's yard  in Porpoise Bay.  beth, ran to the window lo see if  it were tied up to the float.  Sadly, for her, it was not, but  happily for the community, thc  three who had gone overseas  from Egmont had come safely  back, although Stan Silvey had  been wounded. Ben Griffith  returned to eagerly await the  arrival of his special 'war  booty', his bride. Irene, who  came from England a few  months later.  With the war out of the way,  life could return to normal;  rationing lasted a bit longer,  but was presently something  merely to be remembered.  Queen Charlotte Fishing sold  the two stores to a family  named Warman who in turn  sold out to someone else. Then,  when they decided to leave,  Angus Lutz came on the scene.  Lutz made a good many  improvements to the store on  the beach, instituting self-  service to speed things for his  customers. Union Oil erected  three large tanks on the hill and  put in a pile wharf, leaving Lutz  to provide tnc upkeep on the  adjacent floats.  Imer Beamish, who had  taken over the post office when  the Japanese were no longer  allowed to run it, continued to  act as postmaster. The Marine  Express company ran a weekly  ship, the Jervis Express, bringing mail and supplies. B.C.  Packers and the Western  Fishing Company kept a fish-  scow in the bay by the store.  When a Fisherman's Co-op  was formed in Vancouver,  small groups of fishermen all  up and down the coast joined  the organization in the hopes of  better prices and better deals to  case a life which even in good  times was difficult, with long  and arduous hours of work  needed merely to make a  moderate living. The local  members saw the need for their  own fish-float and began to  discuss ways, means and a  possible location.  The site was finally decided  upon; a part of the property  which Mrs. Points had been  forced to let go during thc  depression to pay back taxes,  was still in government hands.  With seven acres and a foreshore agreement, thc group  soon installed a scow, floats  and a cabin on the shore for the  buyer. LM&N Logging held  rights for some timber in the  area and an agreement was  leached whereby the logging  company, in return for levelling  as much as possible of the Coop land, was permitted to place  some buildings there.  The fisherman's group decided to carry supplies as well  as to buy fish, but it was felt by  many that a Consumer's Co-op  would be better suited to that  purpose than a Fisherman's  Co-op. With a loan from the  latter organization and much  volunteer labour, a small store  was built on the foreshore  above the floats along with  a house for the manager.  Several managers attempted to  run the store but somehow it  never seemed to work out to the  satisfaction of all the shareholders. Eventually, Percy  Crowe-Swords and his wife  Sheilagh were recommended  for the managership and accepted by the group.  Meanwhile, Angus Lutz had  been requesting that the government take over maintenance of the floats at his store  because, as he so rightly stated,  they were used by the general  public. While he was negotiating, the Co-op also peti-  Police news of the week  May 9th: A male adult was  seen entering Campbell's  Variety Store in Gibsons.  Police apprehended the man  and charges will be laid.  May 10: A small green and  grey parrot was lost in Sechelt.  May llth: Two males were  seen stealing beer from the  rear of the Great Canadian  Dough Factory in Gibsons.  The beer was recovered, but  the culprits escaped. A set of  keys were found in Sechelt. A  visitor to the area was  camping on the power line  when he was accosted and  $600 was taken from his  person. Benner's Store in  Sechelt was entered by sawing  through the rear door. An undetermined amount of cash  was taken.  May 13th: During the late  evening a car was driven  across the diamond of the  Brothers Park baseball field.  After driving in circles tearing  up the grounds, a rope was  attached to the vehicle and  around the bleachers which  were then torn out from their  foundations. Paul Abbot appeared in court on the 15th and  pleaded guilty to damage to  public property. Sentencing  has been held over until June  4th., awaiting a pre-sentence  report.  May 15th: The BC Hydro truck  was stolen from the compound  in Sechelt. It was found the  next day on Osprey Street.  May 16th: Sharon Astle of  Port Mellon was taken to  Vancouver General Hospital  suffering from neck injuries  resulting from a single vehicle  accident near the townsite.

The decision was made in  favour of the consumer group  and a large float and pier were  built in Co-op Bay, leaving  Lutz and the Union Oil Company to take care of the  installations on the north side  of the inlet. Shortly thereafter  Home Oil set up its tanks by the  Co-op store.  Since it is a general rule of  business that in a place where  mail comes only once a week, a  store near the post office will do  well on mail day, Crowe-  Swords suggested that the Coop build a small addition to the  store and equip it as a post  office. This suggestion started a  tug-o-war with Lutz at one end  and Crowe-Swords and the Coop at the other. Great screeds  passed from each camp to thc  postal department and back  again with the final outcome  being that thc postal authorities asked Imer Beamish  to move his post office from thc  north shore to the south as they  had been informed that the  majority of the people lived  there.  Mr. Beamish, getting on in  years, did not want tn face the  inlet crossing twice each mail  day in all weather as he had  only a small, open boat, and so  declined. At this point, since  there was no one else to do the  job, Sheilagh Crowe-Swords  agreed to take on the chore.  The post office was thus  opened at thc Co-op store with  a stern admonition from the  authorities to the people of  Egmont that this was positively  the last time their post office  would be moved!  The little, one-room school-  house on William Griffith Sr.'s  property was rapidly becoming  too overcrowded to bear and  there were now two teachers  instead of the customary one,  as the number of students had  increased beyond what could  be managed by a lone teacher.  The one room was divided by a  huge, red stage curtain to  separate primary grades from  elementary, but a more permanent solution was desperately needed. Somehow, a  new school had to be acquired.

Out of curiosity I  asked if it was from drinking a  -;5retiition of Orthene, as he had  siid he would at the public  meeting in the Rod and Gun  Glub. but no, apparently he  hadn't tried the concoction  and was sick for more normal  .*. reasons.  OB   Announcements  A letter came in the mail  from Edith Daly of the Pender  Wildlife Cub. It informed me  that there was going to be a  nature walk on Sunday May  18th. Unfortunately it arrived  on Monday after the paper  was printed, so there was no  way I could give her any  publicity on it.  I'm more than happy to  publicize club events, but  please get them to me as early  as possible, even if it's long  before the date. I'll mark it in  my diary and put it in the  appropriate issue.  The Mill  Canfor at Port Mellon was  up in court last week on  charges of'unlawfully depositing a deleterious substance in water frequented by  fish, Rainy River", and also  on charges of unlawfully  permitting the deposit of the  same. The charges are for incidents on (all 1979) July 10th;  July llth; July 12th; October  26th; November 2nd; November 16th and November  17th. The case was set for trial  on October 29th this year.  Spraying  The Sechelt Forest District  has made application to spray  the Crowston Lake area and  the Skaiakos Point area with  2-4D between June 2nd. and  September 30th. The application of the chemicals is to  clear away unwanted growths  and make way for conifers.

Mind Pollution  If you are anything like me  you have to be careful about  succumbing to that dreaded  disease   teleitis.   The   first  symptons are when, on your  day off, you turn on Jack  Websterrrr and suddenly realize that you have been lobot-  omised through Mr. Dressup  and are now watching the six  o'clock news. How far I have  actually been taken over by  the disease flashed before me  on the Garden Bay Road last  Tuesday. When I'm driving I  have a bad habit of watching  almost everything but the  road. Going around Garden  Bay Lake, this is not recommended practice. I was watching the reflections of the trees  on the lake and suddenly I was  into a sharp corner. Without  thinking I started singing  "Good morning, good muffin  to you." Hardly immortal last  words.  When the Flab An  Fishing everywhere seems  to be spotty. The bluebacks  have mostly moved out although there are still a few  being caught on the outside.  Live bait is still in good supply  and is the most successful  offering.  Sewell's in Horseshoe Bay  reports that when they hit  them, three fish per boat is  common. They're a good size,  weighing in over 12 pounds.  Fish just off the bottom for the  best results.  Both Sewell's and Smitty's  in Gibsons have had boats  coming back from Cotton  Point with good catches.  Morris Green at Irvines  Landing has had the same  type of hit and miss type of a  week. When the springs are  caught, they are a good size.  The most promising places at  the moment are Fenny Point  and the A Frame. There was a  double-header at the latter.  Bob Hudson, a regular from  Vancouver,   hooked   into   a  Coast News, May 20, 1980  Bill McDermid in Sechelt gave me direction to this  hummingbird nest. The picture is life size.  couple   of   springs    simul-   population is in Wood Buffalo  taneously (and landed them),  so the news is not all bad. Ling  fishing appears to be OK, so  maybe after a few years of the  longer winter closure, it'll be  back to what it was when I  first moved up here.  Morris Green at Irvines  Landing called in after this  column was written to say that  the fishing had improved  greatly. The south end of  Lasqueti and Texada had  become the hot spots for both  springs and bluebacks.  Whooping Cranes  A Lear jet has been chartered to fly whooping crane  eggs south on May 26th.

It  consists of 76 birds to date -  the world population is put at  around 119. Members of the  Canadian Wildlife Service  scout the area each year and  pinch an egg from a nest  which has two (usually only  one would survive anyway).  They fly the eggs to Idaho by  helicopter and jet, then substitute them for the eggs of a  sandhill crane, who obligingly  incubates them. The eggs are  transferred from nest to nest  within 24 hours and are in an  incubator during transit.  Through this program, a  colony of 16 birds in now  established near Idaho Falls.  This year's project includes  two innovations. The eggs will  be taken back on two separate  This Siamese fir tree at Wetherby Point in Howe Sound was seen and saved during a  past logging operation.

Lockstead pushes  for gas line  NDP MLA Don Lockstead  met with provincial Energy  Minister Robert McLelland  Friday, May 9, to discuss the  possibility of a natural gas  link for the Sunshine Coast.  "The Minister assured me  that the natural gas pipeline  will be a priority item with the  government" Lockstead told  the Coast News, Lockstead  stressed the point that choice  of routes for the proposed  natural gas pipeline to Vancouver Island is a crucial  factor in obtaining a link to the  Powell River and Sunshine  Coast areas.  "The initial costs of the  northern route will be greater," Lockstead said, "But  overall, the long-term results  in terms of energy saving  and service both to residents  and to industry in this area  have to be considered."  4T39*   Coast Business Directory ^T"]^  I APPLIANCES I  JOHN HIND-SMITH  REFRIGERATIONS MAJOR APPLIANCE SERVICE  Port Mellon lo Pender Harbour  >     Res. 886-9949  SUNCOAST TRUSS LTD.

Photograph by John Burnside  TEN YEARS OF CONDOMINIUM DEVELOPMENT  Between January 1, 1968 and November 30, 1977, a total of 2,340  Condominium projects involving 46,411 units were registered in the province of  British Columbia. Of this number, 15 plans involving 245 units were  subsequently cancelled and 4 plans of 459 units were consolidated into other  plans, for a total of 2,325 projects with 46,166 units completed for occupancy  during a 10 year period.  These are some of the facts uncovered in a major study entitled  CONDOMINIUMS..A Decade of Experience in B.C.commissioned by  the British Columbia Real Estate Association. The study was initially started by  the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, but expanded to the provincial  study when it was taken over by the Provincial body, which felt the Strata title  experience should be investigated throughout all of British Columbia. The  research and documentation was directed and prepared by Professor Stanley  W. Hamilton, Associate Dean of the Faculty of Commerce and Business  Administration at U.B.C., with the assistance of Law professors, Planning  experts, and statistical specialists.  The study shows that there are three specific demand groups within the  condominium market. These are:  (a) young people under 30 years of age, who are apartment condominium  purchasers, buying a unit primarily to establish an equity position in the housing  market.  (b) townhouse purchasers who are predominantly in the 30 - 39 year age  category and more likely to have an average number of children.  (c) Older people over 40, who were apartment purchasers moving from a single  detached dwelling to escape the required upkeep.  The most frequently mentioned reasons for purchasing a condominium in a  multi-unit project rather than a single detached house were price (46%) and the  freedom of exterior upkeep (28%).  The study CONDOMIMUMS..A Decade of Experience in B.C., is  available for viewing by the public in most Lower Mainland public libraries, or is  available for $10.00 each through the B.C.
