Array XsA-cAtAh-uLjt 0-C-  \J<3\J    fX*f  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast     25' per copy on qews stands  August 2, 1982 Volume 36, Number 31  Because of economy  Marina shelved  Citing projected operating  overruns, lack of provincial grant  assistance, prevailing high interest  rates and the generally poor  economic climate, Gibsons council announced Tuesday its decision to shelve, "...the Marina  Project until such time as the  economy presents a more optimistic outlook..."  Council's decision was based on  an economic update forecast  prepared by Dunwoody and Company which projected overruns  and operating losses for the proposed marina.  In its motion to shelve the project, council "...expressed regret  at the decision, unanimously  agreeing that in view of the cur  rent economic state of the country, the province and the  municipality, it would be foolhardy to proceed at this time".  Council emphasized that  "...this was not an end to the proposed Gibsons Municipal Marina,  but just a responsible realization  of the current economic times".  Subsequent to council's announcement of the decision, Gibsons Mayor Goddard told the  Coast News that the Federal  government project to dredge the  area adjacent to the new Gibsons  breakwater to allow passage of  larger vessels, would be continuing and Federal funds have  already been alloted to this project.  Municipal computers  Gibsons council  shows the way  by Fran Berger  The Village of Gibsons is putting itself on the map by developing a reputation as a forerunner in  the field of Micro-Computer Programming for use by Municipal  governments.  Under a Co-operative Education Programme with the Faculty  of Computer Science at Simon  Fraser University, students worked with Village Administrator  Jack Copland to develop custom  computer programmes specifically suited to the needs of a  municipality such as Gibsons.  Because of the 50-50 salary -sharing basis of the Co-operative  Education Programme, the village  acquired these programmes at a  substantial saving.  Packages dealing with Land  Taxation, Business Licenses, and  Fixed Asset Inventory have all  been developed, and staff is now  working on writing User  Documentation Manuals. The  plan is to make these programmes  available to other government  bodies, and so recover the expense  of developing the original programmes by selling copies of  them.  Much interest in the work being  done in Gibsons was expressed  when Copland and others from  the area presented a panel/workshop seminar on "Micro-  Computer Application in Local  Government" to the Municipal  Officers Association, representing  most B.C. municipalities in early  June. The District of Burnaby was  amazed at the number of things  which could be done with such  mini-computer programmes  which it was unable to do with its  more sophisticated computer  technology.  "This is the way to go, there's  no question about it," declared  Copland. "We're very excited".  A number of other people are  obviously very excited too, judging from the letters of inquiry  which are arriving almost regularly on Copland's desk. Requests  for information about the newly  developed programmes have come  from Tahsis, Armstrong, Port  Alice, Massett in the Queen  Charlottes, the Minister of  Municipal Affairs in Ontario, and  Australia.  Even though the User  Documentation Manual has still  not been completed, one Base  Package has already been sold,  and a second sale is "almost"  completed.

Joining in the birthday celebration were son Gordon and  his wife, Frances; daughter Maureen Zueff and her husband,  Al; sister-in-law Elizabeth Scott and husband, Vern; very  dear friends from Kamloops, Art and Susie Bowers; grandchildren from Golden, Delta, Richmond, Prince Rupert,  North Vancouver and Gibsons; nieces and eight great-  granchildren.  Park proposal studied  In response to.a letter from the Sechelt Indian Band Council  advising of their intent to implement a memorial park in  honour of former councillor and administrator Ted Dixon,  the Sunshine Coast Regional board recommended recently  that Area C director Jon McRae and parks committee chairman Peggy Connor meet with the Band to receive further information on the project.  In the Band's letter of June 30, they indicate that the park  could provide for track and field, soccer, baseball and other  sporting events.

"I'm pretty sure that we would  have accepted either a deferral or  a rollback if we had been assured  lhat it meant saving jobs," said  President Dave Gant of Local  1119 of the CPU. "Without such  assurances   we   could   justify  Federal government employees  has been rejected by the Canadian  Paperworkers Union. Earlier a request by the Pulp and Paper Industrial Relations Bureau that the  CPU accept a deferral of their 13  per cent negotiated increase was  also rejected.  In both cases the union's reason  for rejecting the request of the  pulp industry for deferral or  rollback was the same. No  guarantees could be given that  either a deferral or a rollback  would ensure that mills would  stay open or that layoffs would  not take place.  In a letter dated July 12 to A.C.  Gruntman, Vice-President of the  CPU, D.A. Saunders, Chairman  and Chief Executive Officer of the  Pulp and Paper Industrial Relations Bureau painted a bleak picture for the economy through  1983.  "For companies to survive,"  wrote Saunders, "there must be a  decrease in their outflow of cash.  The only significant controllable  area left where such a decrease is  possible is the payroll. Salaried  people have already made their  contribution through minimum  salary increases, salary  freezes,  and staff reduction, lt is pointless  discussing profit limitations  because there are no profits; nor  will there be any during the  foreseeable future."  In a reply to Saunders dated July 16, Vice-President Gruntman  of the CPU pointed out that the  major reporting companies in the  pulp and paper industries in the  past five years had registered profits ranging between $200 million  and over $400 million. "Where  have all the profits gone?" asked  Gruntman.  Further, the Vice-President of  the CPU pointed out that because  of downtime at mills, pulp  workers at Powell River, Port  Mellon, Port Alberni, and Port  Alice were experiencing reductions in their take home pay ranging from 14 per cent at Powell  River to 32 per cent at Port Alice.  Workers at Port Mellon will lose  18 per cent of their earnings this  year.  . "No doubt there will be additional downtime after Labour  Day. While other mills have not  had as much downtime, most of  them have suffered at least some.  How then can you intimate the  hourly work force has not already  done their share?" asked Gruntman.  President of Local 1119 Dave  Gant told the Coast News lhal the  union had suggested work sharing  to obviate the necessity of the recent lay-offs but that the mill  management had refused to consider the arrangement.  Mill Manager Harry Cargo told  ihe Coasl News that the layoffs  involving thirty people were 'too  small for work sharing to be  worked into such a large staff.  On Gibsons Bluff  Sewer extension  one step closer  by Judith Wilson  Stage One of the Bluff Sewer  Extension moved one step closer  to commencement at a special  meeting of Council on Mondav.  July 19, with the passing of the  Borrowing Authorization By-law  No. 434 through three readings. If  the by-law is approved by the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs  then council will be in a position  to borrow the necessary funds to  begin construction of Stage One  which will service 34 of the 84 lots  on the bluff promontory or 40 per  cent of the ultimate service area.  Mr. J. Copland, Village administrator, in his report to council on the sewer extension estimated that the total cost will  be $250,000 of which the village,  will need to borrow $165,000.  There will be an additional cost of  $30,000 per year for debt amortization and if Victoria will absorb  75 per cent of this additional debt,  which it has the power to do under  the Revenue Sharing Act regulations, then the cost to each  benefitting ratepayer to service  the net debt will be $221.10 per  annum.  In order to apply this charge to  the property owners it will be  necessary to gain the assent of the  electors of the area and the approval of the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs. Mr. Copland  stated that the village will require  guidance from Victoria in determining whether Stage One property owners would be considered the  electors of the area or whether the  entire Bluff area of 84 lots, would  vote on the question.  The village will now forward  the Borrowing Authorization Bylaw and Mr. Copland's Report to  the Ministry of Municipal Affairs  to seek approval of the by-law and  to seek guidance as to the definition of the specified area, so a  referendum vote can be held to  pass the necessary authorizing  referendum by-law.

No useful purpose is served  by choosing sides and hurling brickbats at one side or the  other.  Sadly, however, brickbats are hurled when times are difficult - usually at the union side of the situation. It takes two  to make a quarrel, however, and if industrial harmony is ever  going to be achieved, some attempt at objective enlightenment is going to have to replace the reflex union-bashing  which is the normal response in difficult times.  Much righteous indignation has been muttered and uttered  locally and recently about the intransigence of the pulp  workers in refusing first a deferral of a negotiated increase of  13 per cent and then a rollback to six per cent of that increase.  The union's position should be considered more carefully  than it has, perhaps. Simply, union members have been asked  to make real sacrifices in their earning power without any  guarantees that their sacrifices will in any way alter the course  of future events.  Particularly disquieting is the refusal of the management of  the Port Mellon mill to consider a work-sharing programme  in order to avoid layoffs. Mill Manager Harry Cargo's statement that thirty people being laid off represented too small a  proportion of the workforce for work sharing to be considered, is simply not good enough.  Thirty people by our calculations represent six per cent of  the workforce. Surely, had the position of management been  a little more flexible a method could have been worked out  whereby a six per cent saving in payroll could have been  worked out without thirty families losing their main source of  income.  Thirty layoffs may seem insignificant to Harry Cargo in the  comfort of his cushioned office. For thirty Sunshine Coast  families they mean real hardship.  We have the assurance of the president of Local 1119 that  union members were willing to accept deferrals or rollbacks if  some co-ordinated effort could have been made to save jobs.  The refusal of the mill management to consider means of job-  savings is most regrettable. It speaks of a callous inflexibility  which is one of the major roots of industrial conflict in North  America.  Ground zero  Sometime this month the Trident nuclear submarine, the  most destructive weapon ever devised, will be stationed at  Bangor, Washington, about 100 miles from the Sunshine  Coast.  This fact effectively makes our area a part of ground zero  in any nuclear exchange.  Who says nuclear disarmament is none of our business?  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  ���&,___.____��  FIVE YEARS AGO  A group of about ten  high school students are  presently at work restoring  Seaview Cemetery sponsored by a Canada Manpower programme.

He is a man of the  north-western forests who, since  before the turn of the century, has  been actively engaged in the logging of f of the giant trees that grow  there. He is also an artist with an  axe whose work reflects an awareness of the oneness of man and  nature that the Indians had before  the coming of the white man with  his mechanized appetites.  He is a Canadian whose work  has been celebrated internationally for more than forty years but  who remains largely unknown in  the country of his birth. The film  on Carter's life and work which  was shown at the i\rts Centre in  Sechelt last month is the work of a  native of Los Angeles, herself but  lately to come to an awareness of  the northern forests in which  Carter has lived and worked for  more than ninety years. To filmmaker Abby Sher are we indebted  for providing us with a perspective which enables us to glimpse  the uniqueness and stature of this  largely unknown giant among us.  Most fittingly, Sher's film on  Dudley Carter opens by panning  across the giant mural by Mexican  muralist Diego Rivera which he  painted for the 1939-40 San Francisco World's Fair. The mural  depicts the changing ways in  which man has related to his environment in North America from  Indian times through the coming  of the white man and the Industrial Revolution. A focal point  of that mural is Dudley Carter  who shared the Art in Action  pavillion at the World's Fair with  Rivera. Rivera was obviously intrigued by the paradox of a man  with an axe carving great wooden  sculptures of timeless spirituality  who from his earliest years had  been involved in the white man's  rape of the northern forests. It is  as if Carter had begun personnally  to reverse the flow away from  mysticism towards machines that  Rivera's mural depicted.  Sher's film explores the forces  that went into the shaping of  Carter at the same time as it  follows him through the 'Portland  project'. The Portland project  saw Carter carving three giant  sculptures for display as the centre  piece of a Portland shopping centre, a task he undertook and completed at the age of eighty-eight.  We learn that he began logging  at age six, greasing the skid roads  ahead of the pulling oxen that  laboured to haul the giant trees to  the sea. We learn of his first exposure ��� to Indian art when his  father taught at Alert Bay.  �����  We see him living on the construction site of the Portland  shopping centre, a seemingly frail  but indefatigable figure at work  on giant trees with an axe whilst  around him moves giant  machinery rushing towards the  same deadline as the man with the  axe. We see him first on and last  off the site each day working  steadily and surely, clambering  around his giant trees on improvised timber scaffolding. We  see his mighty works gradually  take shape beneath his persevering  axe.  His work apart, there is absolutely nothing flambuoyant  about Carter. He is matter of fact  and practical and Sher's film is  faithful to its subject. It is  straightforward and unadorned  with unnecessary hyperbole, relying for the bulk of its text on the  factual understatements of the  sculptor himself.  That the work itself, reaching  far back into an older consciousness, is to be erected on the  most modern of artifacts, the  shopping mall, is the same  paradox that fascinated Rivera at  the 1939-40 World's Fair. Despite  the straightforward matter-of-  factness and lack of pretension of  both the subject and the film there  is finally a sense of cosmic fusion  taking place, of worlds intertwining, most assuredly to the enrichment of the modern.  We are indebted to film maker  Abby Sher for this loving, low-  key introduction to a uniquely  remarkable man. It is a film which  deserves to be v.jely distributed  and deeply savoured.  Generally speaking, the most  effective users of newspapers for  the purpose of communicating are  found among business people.  First of all, the need to advertise  a product is essential to the operation of a business and secondly,  the businessman pays for his  advertising and so, naturally, he is  going to insist on the best.  While businessmen are usually  effective users of newspapers,  there are some things they could  do to make their messages even  better.  Nancy Conway, the head of the  ad design department of the Coasl  News recommends a number of  ways to make ads more effective.  Nancy's first piece of advice is to  keep the ad brief, simple and  clean, avoiding too many graphics  or a confusion of photographs.  The message, above all, should be  brief.  Occasionally, an ad representative, when asked to pack a great  deal of information into a fairly  small space, will suggest a larger  ad. This is not just a way to sell  more space, it is mainly a way to,  as Nancy says, "let the ad  breathe", or to avoid a jumble  which readers will tend to skip  over.  Another useful tip to advertisers is to come in and ask for advice or opinions from the person  designing the ad. Ad designers are  there to give advice as well as  build ads. The advertiser who  doesn't take advantage of the advice and input is not getting his  money's worth.  To get back to Nancy's suggestion to simplify ads - when the ad  rep suggests a bigger space, it  might be possible to just cut out  some of the extra words. If this  can be done, the more concise  message can usually be put into  the size of ad the advertiser wants.  Another :jggestion is to be  specific about the product being  advertised. If the product on sale  is pants, be specific about the  kind, i.e. men's pants, wood window frames, frozen shrimp, etc.  A photograph or graphic,  which simply but specifically identifies the business, is a good idea.  Logos can be designed by the  graphics people at the newspaper.  Another way to stretch the ad  dollar and mount an effective ad  campaign, is to plan advertising  needs over a period of a year.  There are two reasons for this.  First, yearly planning allows for  intensive advertising during peak  periods and a "let people know  you're still around" campaign at  slack times. Second, by planning  advertising over a year, significant  savings can be made by taking advantage of volume discounts on  ads.  Finally, one way in which  businessmen can, but don't often,  communicate is to let the  newspaper know of a new or  special event or product that  might be worth writing about. It  doesn't cost anything and can be  an effective way to communicate  with the public. A good example  of this was the story about how  South Coast Ford in Sechelt,  diversified its business earlier this  year by becoming sole Canadian  distributor for a special rear seat  assembly and a variety of auto  components. The story was interesting and it gave South Coast  Ford a little free advertising.  As I said earlier, businessmen  are generally very effective communicators. With a little planning  and energy, however, they could  be getting their message across  even better.  I  Towards a wider perspective  Kenya's stability shaken  by Geoffrey Madoc-Jones  News early Sunday morning of  an attempted coup against the  government of President Daniel  Arap Moi is likely to send shock  waves through political circles in  Africa for two reasons. Primarily  because Kenya has been viewed as  one of the most stable, pro-  Western countries on the continent. The spectre of a group of  Air Force officers taking over  from the successor of Jomo  Kenyatta raises visions of the  nightmare that is Uganda, or the  Civil War in Nigeria or the present  anarchy in Ghana.  The second reason is because  Moi is the chairman of the  Organization of African Unity.  This body will be having a summit  meeting in Tripoli on August 4.  At the present time, it is wracked  with dissension partly on account  of a disagreement as to whether  Polisaro rebels should be entitled  to membership of the Organization and also because of the fact  that the next chairman is likely to  be Libyan leader Colonel Qaddafi.  Kenya gained its independence  from British colonial rule, after a  long and sometimes bloody campaign, in 1963. The leader of the  independence movement Jomo  Kenyatta became President and  the country became a republic on  December 12,1964. Kenyatta was  the leader of the most powerful of  Kenyan tribes, the Kikuyu, and  despite a prosperous economy was  forced to counteract the forces of  tribalism by a centralized constitution.  Initially Kenyatta's rule was  based upon an alliance with the  Luo Tom Mboya, a highly  respected and able trade union  organizer. Mboya was assassinated on July Sth, 1969, and  leadership of the Luo fell to the  more radical Oginga Odinga.  Odinga was the leader of the Kenyan's People Union which was  banned from political life three  months after Mboya's death.  It is the resurgence of a rural  socialist movement, the recent exiling of Odinga and the fear of  tribal fractionism which has led  Moi to use the fairly authoritarian  constitution to move towards a  one party state in Kenya.  University lecturers and  newspaper editors have been arrested or removed. Opposition to,  or criticism of, Moi's policies are  being stiffled. As so often happens when legitimate opposition is  suffocated it emerges in the form  of a coup d'etat. The next few  months in Kenya will be vital. It  seemed to be one country which  was successfully steering a path  between the twin evils of police  state and anarchy.  The Organization of African  Unity, a body established at a  Pan-African conference in Addis  Ababa in 1963 to maintain  solidarity among African States  and to get rid of colonialism, may  be on its last legs. It no longer has  the prestige of the days of  Nkrumah, Nasser and Haile  Selassie. The non attendance of  Moi, the Polisaro dispute and the  contentious leadership of Qaddaf-  fi may be the cause of its final  demise.  Harold Macmillan's "wind of  change" is blowing through  Africa again. Will it be a trade  wind or a tornado?  r ��� ���  \  The Last  Stand  of Magic  Only our dreams are worthwhile ���  the rest Is robot fingers  duly computing  all beauty  Into decimals and dust.

W  r-  ���  ��� Peter Trower  )  aA  ���m  ,__  WLM  mmm Letters to the Editor  A holocaust beyond Lebanon  Coast News, August 2,1982  Editor:  Our ambassador to  Lebanon said it all this  past week when he sadly  commented following  the bombing of our embassy by Israeli bombers:  "...I wonder where the  Israel 1 knew is gone."  He was reacting not only  to the bombing, but to  the suffering and misery  left in the path of the invading Israeli army.  Those of us, Jew and  non-Jew, who rejoiced at  the formation of Israel  are drawing back in horror at the holocaust now  being visited on the  Palestinian and  Lebanese people by that  same nation.  The ancient cities of  Sidon, Tyre and  Nabatieh are already in  ruins and thousands of  lives lost. Now Beirut is  being destroyed by  Israeli bombs and shells,  along with its people and  ancient repositories of  Lebanese and Palestinian cultures.  TV gives the evidence  of this for our eyes, but  our ears are filled with  pro-Israeli commentary.  But now eyewitness accounts are beginning to  get past the Israeli cen  sors revealing what is  happening to the Palestinian and Lebanese people captured and held in  internment camps.  On July 25 a full page  ad appreared in the New  York Times appealing to  its readers to help in obtaining the release of  prisoners in Israeli internment camps. The ad  entitled War Crimes in  Lebanon, gave the  eyewitness testimony of  Dr. Chris Giannou, a  Canadian in charge of  the Sidon hospital, and  several Norwegian doctors who worked with  him. Their statements  gave horrifying detail of  the torture and beatings  to death of captured  Palestinian medical personnel by Israeli military  men. The ad also lists the  names of the "disappeared" - some 100  Palestinian Red Crescent  hospital personnel. It  also charges that  thousands of other people are missing.  The reality of  Lebanon is obvious. The  tank artillerymen and the  bombing pilots are not  Germans, but Israelis;  the guards in the internment camps are not SS  guards, but Israeli  guards. This is not the  holocaust in Europe forty years ago, but the  holocaust in Lebanon in  1982. The victims are not  Jewish, but Palestinians  and Lebanese.  Your editorial on  Menachem Begin is one  of hundreds of ads,  editorials and letters to  the editor that, in a  mounting protest, are  beginning to break  through the pro-Israeli  media in North America.  Parliamentarians and  governments are beginning to speak out in spite  of the powerful pro-  Israel lobby. Those I  have read are saying  essentially: the bombing  and shelling must be  stopped, Israel must  withdraw from  Lebanon, and the  prisoners must be released from Israeli internment camps.  Unless this happens  ���and soon- we may all be  drawn into a holocaust  that reaches far beyond  Lebanon.  Sincerely,  Frank L. Fuller  P.O. Box 657  Gibsons, B.C.  Fundraising projects needed  Editor:  The Rainbow Preschool was approached  by the R.C.A.F. Society  (Coast Festival Society)  with regard to contributing equipment,  supplies, volunteers, and  expertise for the  children's entertainment  during the festival. In exchange, we were to  receive a portion of the  proceeds from the  festival, if any.  Despite the fact there  was no monetary profit  we did profit in other  ways. Materials collected  and constructed for the  festival (panels, signs,  streamers, etc.) can all be  used at the pre-school.  Parent volunteers received experience and training in what they will be  doing at the pre-school,  as required by the Child  Care Facilities Licensing  Board. Finally, the most  valuable asset is the  demonstration of community support for the  pre-school - a key factor  when we are applying for  grants. We also gained  community support  while at the festival judging from the many  positive comments and  praise we received.  We are confident the  R.C.A.F. Society (Coast  Festival Society) did  everything they could to  make the festival profitable. I have never seen  a group of people work  so hard and I have been  involved with cooperatives and other  voluteer activities over  the past ten years. More  important than the hard  work though was the  level of professionalism;  these people have experience and contacts  necessary for a well run  festival.  So what went wrong?  The same thing that happens with many  businesses which open  after consumer surveys  and economic feasibility  studies yet still don't survive. Some decisions  turn out to be wrong  decisions not because  they were poor decisions  but because of hindsight.  Furthermore, there is no  sure way to predict  public , response until  after the fact, as any  politician or businessman knows. Many of the  most profitable enterprises are those which involve the most risk.  When   the  R.C.A.F.  becomes established on  the festival circuit it will  be an excellent way to  raise money for community projects such as  ours. Provincial and  Federal grant money is  increasingly hard to get,  private foundations only  want to contribute when  there is another source of  funds evident. Large  scale fundraising projects involving the whole  community may be the  only way small nonprofit groups such as  ours can survive.  Yours truly,  Valerie J. Silver  Co-Chair  Rainbow Pre-School  Taxi Cab ire  Editor:  I am very angry and  annoyed by the incident  that had occurred today  involving the Gibsons  Village Taxi.  Last night I phoned  the taxi well in advance  and informed the dispatcher that I would like a  taxi for 6:00 a.m. in  order to catch the 6:30  ferry. It was important  for me to get down to the  terminal on time since I  work on the ferry as a  tourist counsellor.  I was out the door at  6:00 a.m. expecting that  the taxi would be at my  doorstep and ready to  take me to my destination. I must have phoned  the taxi company at least  five times when finally  someone answered at  6:20 a.m. The response  that I got was, "Don't  worry, you have 20  minutes to spare."

Get one of equal value at  school he would    surely receive an "F".  Finally the taxi arrived  a few minutes after the  call. Luckily I just made  the ferry since it was a  few minutes late or else I  would have been stranded on shore.  That afternoon I  phoned the taxi company  to report the incident.  When I asked the dispatcher why the taxi wasn't  here on time she replied  that the driver was late  (oh really?)  I rarely take the cabs  but I expect it to be a service that I can rely on  when in need of it. I  mentioned that if I  had known it would be  this late I would have  hitch-hiked (which, by  the way goes against my  morals). 1 told the  woman that I thought  I'd let her know of this  incident so she can pass  the word on to the  drivers to be on time.  Between you and I, according to the tone of  her voice and to the fact  that she nearly hung up  on me, I don't think she,  nor the driver give a  darn.  Yours truly,  S. Somogiji  Further  research  Editors:  Since the Editors are  unable to give me a  specific source for some  material in their "Begin  a dangerous man"  editorial, I have sent  copies of that editorial to  both Time and  Newsweek in New York.  I have requested the exact copies which you say  substantiate your  statements.  Out of simple curiosity  I have also sent copies to  the ambassadors of the  Israeli, Jordanian, Egyptian Lebanese and Syrian  Embassies in Ottawa. I  have requested any  response they might  have. I'll keep you  posted.  Richard Abrams  Gibsons  Dangerous  practice  Editor:  I was looking forward  to a pleasant afternoon  stroll on the Roberts  Creek beach July 28.  Little did I know I was  about to see something  that would "irk" me  enough to phone the  forestry office, fire hall  and local newspaper.  Upon my arrival I saw  a flick of flame about ten  or so feet high shooting  from a burn-off pipe on  the little metal dock.  This, in itself, is a common and probably  necessary procedure but  what got me was that the  fire was unattended.  There should have been a  propane company  employee or member of  the fire department to  keep an eye on it. As it  was, there was a strong  wind and the forests  were again closed down,  due to heat, the day  before.  It would take only a  small spark or floating  piece of paper to ignite  and land on the dry grass  surrounding the propane  tanks. Heaven only  knows what would happen if that went up.  All I ask is that a little  thought be given to a  potentially dangerous  situation. It would be'  cheaper and safer to pay  someone to look after it  than to pay for the clean  up and loss of lives afterwards. I might be over  dramatic but would you  lie on the beach if those  things were burning? In  these inflationary days,  an ounce of prevention is  worth five pounds of  cure!

The  classrooms are all nicely  furnished with new  equipment and the gyms  are completely finished.  Roberts Creek would  have to wait awhile for a  full-size gym by the  Ministry of Education's  requirements and with  further cutbacks there's  no telling when that  would have been. So by  going ahead with limited  school board participation we got a facility  sooner but had to cut  corners.  The Ways and Means  Committee is trying to  make up as many of the  deficiences as possible  with the money raised  over the past four years.  With as much volunteer  help as can be recruited,  we hope to be able to  finish off the downstairs  community use rooms  soon, maybe in time for  use in the Fall by groups'  who have already expressed an interest.  Some people have  already come forward  and offered their help.  But there's lots to be  done with gyproc, electrical wiring, plumbing,  painting, ductwork,  woodwork and carpeting. So, if you can lend a  hand, please let us know;  Marlene Longman at  886-8548 or Jeanie Norton at 886-9609.  BABYSITTER LIST:  Here, at long last, is  the babysitter list.

The money  from future raffles will  go towards it and the  Auxiliary's planning a  dance September 18 with  "Waves", the band that  played at the Legion the  weekend of the Arts  Festival.  ASSOCIATION NOT  ASSOCIATED:  Apparently because  the Arts Festival took the  place of Roberts Creek  Daze this year, some  people thought it was being put on under the  auspices of the Community Association. To  set the record straight,  the Festival was sponsored by an independent  society, not the Hall  Committee or other affiliate of the Association.  RAFFLE WINNERS:  Robert Bruce from  Vancouver bought the  winning ticket in the  Legion Auxiliary's draw  on July 23. He won a $75  voucher from Super-  Valu.  Second prize winner  E. Hood from Gibsons  and third prize winner  P.H. Sheridan from  Roberts Creek also won  grocery vouchers. ��� *-��� V  More Letters  Parking and fireworks  ��� ��� ���  Continued from Page 3  unsuccessfully trying to  persuade some young  fellows from leaving  their truck completely  blocking off Jack's  Lane, I was out in my  yard stamping out small  fires started by some of  the parachuting spent  fireworks.

She had expected great  formality in costumes  along with strict protocol. Instead she was  delighted with the variety  of expression in people's  costumes, from the  Mediaeval Society's armour (equivalent to the  Kimono) to the colourful  choices people made to  express themselves.

Alice McSweeney, the  Director Psychologist in  charge of the Sechelt  Mental Health Centre  since 1973, is taking early retirement as of July  30th this year.  A dinner party in her  honour was held at the  Parthenon Restaurant in  Sechelt on Wednesday,  July 28th; present were  thirty-one people from  agencies her work has  brought her in contact  with.  Originally from New  Westminster, Alice held  an important post in the  USA, working out of  Tacoma,���with flyings  trips to Washington,  D.C.  She chose to return to  B.C. where she became  director for Mental  Health in B.C. Picking  Roberts Creek as their  future retirement home,  husband Jack and  herself are located there.  Dr. Bill Bridge,  Psychiatrist for the Mental Health Centre, said  that only a quarter is  known of what Alice has  done and the concerns  she has had for the  citizens of the Sunshine  Coast. Single-handed,  she has run the Mental  Health Centre with occasional help from Dr.  Bridge, as visiting  psychiatrist, former  secretary Helen Fellowes  and present secretary  Vallia Beauchamp.  Speaking on behalf of  Human    Resources,  Helen Roy said that what  stood out working with  Alice was her  professionalism and integrity.  Diane Read told how  much   the   Garibaldi  Health Unit appreciated  her many talents.  VISITORS FROM  PRINCE RUPERT:  Ed and Hla Nicholson  with son Quinn stopped  for a few days with the  John Denleys of West  Sechelt. Ed was the  former director for Area  "B" Sunshine Coast  Regional District, and  special assistance teacher  for school district no.  46.  Happy with the living  in Prince Rupert, Ed and  heart.  Ilia expect an addition to  their family in  September.  While he has been approached   to   enter  politics up there, he has  no desire to do so.  AFTERNOON TEA:  A fine place to take  your visitors for a quiet  afternoon tea is the  Rockwood Lodge in  Sechelt, open every day  but Sunday from 2 p.m.  to 4 p.m.  Looking straight down  Cowrie Street and over  Sechelt Village from the  tea room the view is interesting.  The service is excellent, provided by  volunteers who each  work about one day a  week; they could use  more help evidently, so if  you feel so inclined, get  in touch with Mrs. Lil  Fraser.  They have a nice selection of tea dainties including delectable  scones. The tea room is a  Sechelt Chamber of  Commerce project to  help keep the familiar  landmark in use.  In another room we  find shades of the old  Whitaker House, arts  and craft work of local  people for sale. Paintings, knitted wear,  needlework, ceramics,  afghans, comforters are  on display.  THIRD BIRTHDAY:  This Friday, August  6th, is the third birthday  of the Sunshine Coast  Arts Centre and time for  the annual summer get-  together for members  and friends. It is a  chance to meet and recap  the events of the last  year. It starts at 5:00  p.m.  Starting at 9:00 p.m.  the same evening is a  documentary about  Marilyn Monroe to be  followed on Saturday by  Bus Stop. Tuesday it will  be Some Like It Hot and  Wednesday, The Misfits.  If you are a Marilyn fan,  this is your opp^'unity  to see her perfoiaai.

Soh. Photo  Elphinstone students  A visit to Newfoundland  by Jillian Morrow &  Greg Jovick  On May 13, at 7:00  a.m. Elphinstone Secondary school's Geography  12 class departed Gibsons. The bus trip to  Vancouver International  Airport was for a  number of students,  somewhat apprehensive  as the cross-Canada trip  represented a first. First  for numerous students  included - travelling outside B.C., east of Toronto, a visit to the  Maritimes, flying at  39,000 feet in a Boeing  747, and as we were on  the midnight flight, the  opportunity to view the  sunrise over Winnipeg as  we flew into daylight.  Toronto, with twelve  hours to use, allowed the  students to visit a  number of landmarks,  specifically the CN  Tower, Eaton's Centre,  and the Ontario Science  Centre. We found the  most efficient transportation system to be the  Toronto Transit System  and in particular the subway, which for nearly all  students was again a  first.  Upon our arrival back  at Toronto's airport at  6:30 p.m. and departure  at 7:00 p.m., the  students had gone  without sleep in most  cases for 36 hours. There  would pass an additional  six hours or 42 in total  before they could finally  be bedded down. The  amusing scenes included  exhausted students catnapping on the subway  or leaning against buildings resting their eyes  and being guided by  those who were still running on reserve energy.  May 15, rain and overcast in St. John's, and as  Andrew Frizzell related  to   another   student  "How can people survive on the rock?" During our stay in St. John's  we from the west would  develop a deep and  sincere respect for the  tenacity of the Newfoundlanders who can  and make no bones  about their past heritage.  They are, beyond a  doubt, sincerely proud  of their ability to adapt  to their surroundings  and accept the meager  gifts of nature.  Secondly, our students  were duly impressed with  the high degree of  academic expectations  which our student-hosts  displayed. As  Elphinstone and our  B.C. educational system  graduates students after  12 years, in Newfoundland, students graduate  after completing only 11  years of formal education. It is also mandatory  for all students to complete two courses referred to as Religious  Studies or R.E. The two  courses are spread over  two years and provide  the student with an  equivalent of our basic  Law 11 course, an introduction to comparable religions, a  values course and a in-  depth course concerning  Newfoundland's history  and culture.  to be continued  by Ruth Forrester  885-2418  SQUARE BAY BASH:  The residents of the  Square Bay area have,  for five years got  together each summer  for a big barbecue for all  the residents of that area  - which apparently must  not be confused with  Brooks Cove. Square  Bay is around the corner  from Brooks Cove. Five  years ago there were  around twenty or so people at this gathering.  Last year there were  seventy-five, and this  year the number had increased to 12S. Truly a  growing area.  The event was held at  the Bradshaw residence  in the form of a pot luck  supper and barbecue,  and a great time was had  by all. There were a couple of special guests this  year from Pretoria in  South Africa. Libbv  FAIR WINNERS:  The winners of the  three and a half mile race  round the perimeter of  Connor Park on the day  of the Halfmoon Bay  Country Fair were: for  the ladies, Carol  Feenstra of Halfmoon  Bay and the male victor  was Roger Langevin of  Tuwanek.  The fair this year was  very successful and  thanks are due to the  committees involved in  getting the whole thing  together with special  mention of Peggy Connor who did a fine job in  MCing for the day.  Thanks are also due to  the merchants and  business groups who  were so generous in  donating prizes for the  various events and raffles. Will mention a few  of these good people:  Teri Peck, Ronnie Dunn,  Ri iv Hooks, Tyee Bait,  ' n-Lyn Catering,  Andcison Realty and Art  Angel. May have missed  out one or two but these  were the only names  given to me. But a heartfelt thanks to one and  all.  One lady who was  greatly missed at the Fair  was our own well known  teacup reading lady Eva  Lyons who is at present  on the sick list. Get well  soon Eva.  Also on the local sick  list is Owen Edmunds  whom we wish a speedy  recovery.  A HUNDRED AND  ONE YEARS:  Mrs. Louise Bardahl,  a well known and greatly  loved lady from this area  - now residing in Calgary  will be celebrating her  hundred and first birthday on August S.  Daughters from  Redrooffs, Hazel Ellis  and Lilain Birk together  with their sister Mildred  Sorenson of Vancouver  are flying off to Calgary  to help their Mum  celebrate the occasion.  Happy Birthday Louise  from all of us on  Redrooffs.  Mare Letters ��� ��� ���  Charge of "presstitution" laid  Editor:  1 have started this  letter, or at least a letter  of similar intent, on  more than one occasion  in the past and never  followed it through to  completion. This time,  however, I feel sufficiently moved by comments in your by-line  column of July 21 to  finally confront the  issue. You have  repeatedly indulged in a  form of playing for the  sympathy of the reader  that I was taught to think  of as "presstitution",  and inasmuch as I have  borne the brunt of these  disparaging remarks I  therefore have the right  to comment on the matter.  It is common practice  between competing  newspapers to harangue  and debunk the competition, it is true. We might  even call this a legitimate  tradition; the editorial  lampoon being as old an  institution as the  newspaper business  itself. In this case  however, your claims are  aimed at a non-  combatant in the local  publishing fracas and I  am not a fair target.  I would appreciate it if  you would, in future,  resist the temptation to  decry the allegedly  "shaky" (your word)  financial position of the  paper at the time you  took it over. In spite of  your piteous protestations to the contrary,  John, the hard facts are  that the Coast News had  never been in a stronger  position economically  than at the time we sold  it to you; a fact that can  be readily confirmed by  the auditors. Actually,  the advertising content  per page was almost embarrassingly high, even  to an advertising  salesman who by all accounts should be less  sensitive to it than most  people, especially  editors.  If you have thus far  failed in your bid to  make the Coast News  both readable and  lucrative   I   can   sym-  Fire response  H.G.

Some  seventy-five dancers  took part in a day of  dancing on the lawn on a  beautiful sunny afternoon of Saturday, July  17. Guests were from the  See-Saw Square Dance  Club of Vancouver and  our lown local Rancho  Ramblers. Caller Harry  Robertson accompanied  by his wife Deanna were  present and Harry did a  fine job calling. Viv  Pallot from Vancouver  also called for several of  the dances.  One couple who usually attend but were unable  to do so this year were  Morris and Peggy  Hemstreet and they were  greatly missed. A pot  luck supper and evening  of fun was much enjoyed  by all.           Coast News, August 2,1982  SECHELT  AUTO CLINIC  Located on Wharf Rd.

Considering the ill-  paying and generally  distasteful nature of the  job, the calibre of the  South Wing staff is surprisingly high. Most of  ihe younger screws seem  pretty decent guys. But  no system is foolproof  and there are certainly  exceptions, A couple of  the older screws fall into  ihis category. They  entered the system when  punishment was the  main function of prisons  and rehabilitation, only  an idle dream. Resenting  the changes and reforms,  ihey pine for sterner  times. Such a man is a  guard called Archie  Stone.  Stone is a stern-faced  man with iron gray hair,  a small, clipped moustache and a ramrod-stiff  carriage. He has worked  as a guard for over 30  years and was recently  transferred here from the  B.C. Pen after being  hauled up on charges of  undue cruelty. He is  known as "Stoneheart"  to the oldtime cons.  They hate his guts to a  man   and   shake  their  Peter  heads or spit when he  passes.  One morning Stone-  heart conscripts Jake,  myself and a couple of  other men and puts us to  work, sorting out a pile  of old equipment in a  remote corner of the  wing. Among these random artifacts is a  racklike table about the  length of a man and  equipped with four  leather straps. It has a  decidedly sinister appearance.  "That's the old  paddling-rack" informs  Stoneheart with a wistful  look. "Damn shame  they don't let us use it  any more. Discipline's  gone all to hell around  here since they stopped  the flogging. That's all  some of those bastards  upstairs understand!"  Jake looks at me; I  look at him and we don't  say a word. I'm just glad  as hell that these are no  longer the bad old days.  Stoneheart must have  been in his glory then.  That afternoon, there  is a spot of unscheduled  excitement in the yard.  Corky Walters, the  badluck burgler who is  facing the Bitch has apparently lost his appeal.  He is to be transferred to  the Penetentiary, the  following day. Corky sits  in the corner of the yard  with a stunned look on  his face. Several cons go  over to offer their condolences. He doesn't appear to hear them.  "Poor bugger" says  Scotty. "They're throwing the bloody key away  on him. That's damn  near as bad as a death  sentence!"  Suddenly Corky rises  to his feet and walks  slowly towards the yard-  screw like a man in a  trance. The guard eyes  him curiously but makes  no move. The guy probably just wants to be let  back inside. He looks as  though he has lost his  last friend. We watch in  sympathy.  About three feet from  the guard, Corky halts.  He looks as though he is  about to say something.  Suddenly, with surprising speed for a man of  his bulk, he snaps out of  his lethargy, lunges and  grabs the bull by the  throat. It takes us all by  surprise.  The two men wrestle  back and forth. I'm  afraid a riot is going to  break out but the gun-  tower screw, his shotgun  cocked, hollers down a  warning to the muttering  and excited cons. Three  other screws burst from  the   building   and   the  Theatre space needed  by Fran Berger  Thanks to the efforts  and generosity of  Ensemble Theatre, the  Roberts Creek Community Hall has had its  electrical outlet system  upgraded from 110 volt  to 220 volt.  Having used the hall  for their "4 x 8" evening  of performances the first  week in July, the Ensemble group has developed  a strong appreciation of  the possibilities of the  hall as a theatre, lt was  limited in the lighting  equipment it could rig,  however, due to the 110  volt connections.

If you have  a fairly large space to offer, please call Selia  Karsten at 885-7388 or  the Coast News at  886-2622.  A second need is for  performance space  where sets and seating  can be left up from one  weekend until the next.

"What style?"  "What age group?"  "Fifteen   to   Eighty-  three?"  "I don't know."  Are you one of those  people who have no idea  who a good guitar player  is? Do you buy George  Benson records and  think he's some new cat  on the jazz scene?  I have heard some  good guitarists. Charlie  Byrd has always (as long  as I can remember) been  good. Lenny Breau was  good before 1 lost track  of him . I guess Chet  Atkins is good. I've  heard he's great.  I have a few favourite  guitarists, but they are  mostly young and are  working in the field of  what has come to be  loosely termed - country  music. Redneck Jazz.  Moo Wave.  I guess one favourite  has to be James Burton,  who is currently touring  and recording with John  Denver, but was with  Elvis in Vegas and Em-  mylou on the road with  Gram Parsons.  Next I guess would be  Clarence White, who I  understand we've lost  along the way, who was  with the Byrds after  McGuinn rebuilt the  show into a country/space group. Eight  Miles High with  Clarence live was a beauty, eh?  Along comes Albert  Lee, from England, and  steps into Emmylou's  band and makes you  think he invented the  style. I enjoyed shaking  his hand and shouid've  thanked him at the time,  but I was busy looking  for Emmylou.  I guess my favourite,  tho' ...hometown boy  that I am...is a guy from  Maryland named Danny  Gatton.  Danny became legendary in the early seventies when the word  started circulating in the  CD. community that  Buchannen wasn't the  best anymore. That was  news, because Roy was  the best.  Not only could Gatton  play the blues, his jazz  and country positions  enabled him to run  circles around Buchannen.  Every time I go to  Washington, D.C. I  make a point of seeing  Danny play. I first heard  him when I was home  from Hawaii in '72 and a  friend of mine, himself  the best young blues  player in the city, insisted that I go meet him.  On this last visit, I took  my wife.  The guy had a five-  piece band with him that  he used to play with in  the sixties. He was just in  for a night after touring  with Roger Miller, and  the guys got together for  the occasion. Two sax  players (brothers), bass  (Steve Wolf, top D.C.  sessionist and soloist)  and drums (gee, it  sounded like five).  After warming up, the  things they were playing  together were so mind-  boggling that my wife  finally said "I'm getting  tire.,.".  After trying to explain  it to her I think I'll just  leave it at that.

The atmosphere and setting  were magical, with the  large parachute and  back-drops on the lower  field providing a balance  with the little town of  crafts and food booths  on the upper.  The entertainment was  very exciting; there were  many beautiful crafts  and delicious foods. The  children's area was a  very popular attraction  with both parents and  children - parents could  leave their kids all day  and not worry; in fact  the only problems were  faced at the end of the  day when it was time to  go home. There were a  lot of "I don't want to  go" cries to be heard.  The First Aid was efficient, and fortunately  not needed for any major catastrophes.  Volunteer participation was very good; we  had a large staff and  most everybody pulled  their weight unstintingly  throughout the two days,  and some both before  and after as well. We  would like to thank the  Volunteer Bureau for its  help in this direction,  and would recommend  its service to anyone  presenting an event  where help is needed.  The response from  people with many years  of experience on the  Festival circuit was very  positive. Some found it  hard to believe that it  was a first time round  for us. It was heartening  to hear such encouragement.  Indeed, our major  regret is that more  members of our own  community were unable  to join us in our  Festivities. Had this not  been the case, then  perhaps we would now  be looking at our books  with black in the columns. As it is, after  tallying up all our expenses, we are looking at  a year of steady fund-  raising to bring us up to  this point. We are attempting to pay all our  outstanding accounts,  but we will need a great  deal of help to do so, as  they are in excess of  $20,0001 We have not  lost heart - rather we are  encouraged, and feel  that we have learned  many invaluable lessons.

Thank  you.  Coast Naturalists  August best  for meteor viewing  by Alison Watt  Have you noticed the  abundance of "shooting  stars" in the last few  weeks? The phenomenon  of shooting stars is actually due to the intersection of the earth, as it orbits the sun, with  meteoroids. Meteors are  small bodies, usually  anywhere from the size  of a grain of sand to that  of a pebble. They are  true members of the  solar system, revolving  around the sun, as the  earth is. As they travel in  their eccentric orbits they  can cross paths with the  earth in its orbit. When  they do so, because they  are travelling faster than  the earth, (which is orbiting the sun at WA  miles per second), the  speed at which they enter  the earth's atmosphere  causes them to burn up.  As we look up we see a  streak of light rapidly  carving a path across the  night sky.  Under good conditions one can see between six and a dozen  meteors every hour on  A tail of two theories  by Bob Hunter  most nights of the year.  Some of these meteors  are sporadic, that is  unrelated to any particular swarm of  meteors. At certain times  of the year the earth  passes through denser  swarms. The swarm  which the earth is passing through now is  known as the Perseid  meteor shower, as it  seems to emanate from  the direction in which we  now see the constellation  Perseus. Perseus is, of  course, the gallant young  man of Greek mythology, who flew to the  lovely princess Andromeda's rescue, on the  winged horse, Pegasus.  This is probably one of  the best known and most  reliable of all annual  showers and has been  recorded for at least 1000  years.  The Perseids begin in  mid-July and persist for  about a month. They  usually reach their maximum on the night of  August 11 -12, when one  can see up to 60 meteors  per hour.  As Story of The Year,  I would nominate the  report out of Boston that  a baby was born with a  /two-inch tail.  The doctors involved  said this was a rare condition, but that it occurred from time to time  because human genes  still contain the information necessary for tail  formation.  A tail, by the way, is  called a "caudal appendage".  The one on the kid in  Boston had hair and  nerves but no bone or  cartilage, lt was covered  "by skin of normal texture and had a soft,  fibrous consistency," according to Associated  Press.  Now get this! The tail  was removed! They cut it  off!  If I was the kid, I'd  sue them and sue them  for a lot.  I'll tell you the truth. I  have suffered from tail  envy all my life. I have  always secretly wished I  had a tail.  I watch the things that  various animals do with  their tails, and I think,  ah drat, why haven't I  got one of those? Unfair!  I'm not entirely kidding, either. Go on,  think about it. There are  a lot of closet tail-enviers  out there, I'm certain,  even if you don't dare  admit it for fear of being  locked away.  The timing of a human  child being born with a  tail couldn't have been  better (always assuming  it's not a hoax).  What with the creationists pitting themselves against the evolutionists on the educational front and the  Christian fundamentalists locked in political  battle   with   orthodox  The Hunter Gallery  will be presenting to  the public the second annual exhibit of works by  the Senior Citizens of the  Adult Day Care Centre  in Gibsons. We are happy to show works of  some new members to  the club as well as our  regular artists.  It is wonderful to see  people with physical  disabilities trying in a  creative way to overcome  them, giving us all a  positive and hopeful attitude towards life. For  others, it is a time in  their lives when they  have more freedom and  are able to experience the  ''WITH THIS COUPON"!  realm of art, discovering  for themselves a new  dimension to life and  passing this joy on to  others.  We hope that you will  come and meet the artists  on Tuesday, August 3. A  tea will be served between 1:30 and 2:30 p.m.  The show will continue  until August 13.  /  scientific thinkers, the timing, indeed, is poetic.  It also ties in rather  nicely with two of the  other great debates of  our time - the animal  rights movement and the  anti-abortion fight.  The doctors involved  with the tailed child in  Boston said that "even  those familiar with  evolution are rarely confronted with the relation  between human beings  and their primitive  ancestors on a daily  basis."  The tail "represents a  striking clinical confrontation with the reality of  evolution", they added.  The argument is that  humans diverged from  our most closely related  tail-bearing ancestors  some 25 million years  ago.  Personally, 1 have had  doubts about the Theory  of Evolution for years,  ever since a friend of  mine who is a  thoroughly-rational professor told me the fossil  record is not only incomplete, it provides  scientific evidence that  tends to refute Darwin,  in essence, evolutionism is a belief system  more than an indisputably proven fact.  You don't have to be in  favour of the Biblical vision of the universe in  order to make that case.  This would have been  a definite public relations victory for the  scientists - the finding of  a tail on a human - if  they hadn't immediately  bungled it by amputating.  Who is to say that a  tail isn't an improvement?  Even if it was just to  hold the space bar down  on my typewriter, freeing a thumb to poke  through the telephone  book, I'm absolutely cer-.  tain I could find ways to  make use of a tail.  At the Arts Centre  Centre celebrates  third birthday  Seniors exhibit art  The Sunshine Coast  /Arts Centre in Sechelt,  which will be celebrating  its third birthday August  6, is pleased to announce  the outstanding success  of the Dudley C. Carter  show which took place  here in July. The work of  this nonegenarian Canadian sculptor attracted  record breaking crowds  to the Centre. Over two  thousand people enjoyed  the works and display of  photographs during the  three week installation.  Five of Carter's larger  ' irks can still be viewed  on the Arts Centre  grounds over the summer.  While the greater  .umber of visitors are  from the Sunshine Coast  and British Columbia,  the guest book indicates  visitors from all across  Canada to Halifax, from  the United States as far  south as New Mexico  and east to New York.  From overseas have  come   visitors   from  Hawaii, Hong Kong,  Australia, England,  Scotland, Sweden,  Finland, Germany, and  Israel.  It is interesting to note  that our tributes this year  to both Dudley Carter  and Hubert Evans, who  reside on the Sunshine  Coast, have been  reported by the Vancouver media. The  tribute to Hubert Evans  was discussed on the  editorial page of the  Toronto Globe and  Mail. The Sunshine  Coast is developing a  reputation for its high  degree of artistic  achievement and  therefore attracting major attention.

Tlje other evening (about IO p.m.) I had to  come down to fhe store tc lock up after a Sea  Cavalcade Committee meeting in our upstairs  hall. Here was Gwen, all by herself, waiting.  From a distance, I have admired this lady's  organizing abilities and the way she has kept  Sea Cavalcade going by getting people to  take charge of the various bits and pieces  that make up SEA CAVALCADE. It's a great  job of organization.  I asked her about her background and  learned that she was a secretary. Also she  was very involved with the Consumer's  Association of Canada.  As a merchant I have seen both the good  and the bad of that association's deeds, and I  have spoken on this issue before. So naturally, we had a bit of a debate.  One area where I feel there is an aggravated amount of product write-off and  loss which must add to the final cost to the  consumer is date-coding on certain products.  Date-coding has to be applied with a certain  amount of judgement and common sense.  Further the date-code is not always accurate,  in that if the product is not properly  refrigerated at all times, as in the case of  dairy products - (eggs, butter, milk and  cheese), the product may spoil BEFORE the  code runs out. If the product is well handled  from beginning to end, in the hands of the  processors, transporters, wholesalers,  retailers and finally the CONSUMERS  themselves, it can last well beyond the code  date.  I Am surprised that'the Dairy Council of  Canada has not come up with a reliable  response, particularly as to cheese.  We have several hundred dollars worth of  cheese of various mixed brands that is out-of-  code. Now there is nothing that can go bad  with old cheese - it simply gets betterl Instead  of waiting any longer for the representatives  of these companies (Kraft Is the worst) to  come around and pick up out-dated cheese, I  am going to put it on sale according to what I  think it Is worth, at from 25% -50% to 75%  off. Come in, look it over, and make your  choice.  Cheese lovers will know what to do with itl  HALL RENTAL: Our hall above Ken's  Lucky Dollar Store is now equipped with  chairs and tables for regular rental. |ust right  for groups of 50 to 100.

Ltd., Vancouver,  through its affiliate  Trailways, for a franchise for scheduled bus  routes on the Sunshine  Coasl.  In ils letter, which  cited current service as  'found to be lacking",  the company offered lo  prpvide "top rate equipment, and expanded  schedule, special services  for the handicapped, and  parcel express al reduced  rates".  Council was not aware  of any specific complaints about current service. Mayor Lorraine  Goddard said she  understood that the present carrier, Maverick  Coach Lines of Vancouver, found there to be  this area, and ran buses  here at a loss. This would  seem to question the  need for a second bus  line.  Alderman Bill Edney  pointed out that according to their letter,  Pacific Northwest Bus  Co. Ltd. is one of the  largest charter, tour and  sightseeing companies in  B.C. "We could benefit  from more tourists on  tours and charters  around here," said  Edney. "It would be  good for the whole community".  Council referred the  matter to Mayor Goddard to discuss with  Sechelt representative  Mayor Bud Koch and the  SCRD director in charge  of transportation, David  Hunter, at the next  Regional Board meeting.  It was not felt that a letter in "strong support"  of the application could  be written at this time.

Students can also utilize  the Learning Assistance  Service to practise rusty  study skills and the  couselling service to plan  for education and work  goals.  Adults must have been  out of school for one  year and be over 17 years  of age to enroll. Interested persons should  contact the Learning  Centre at 885-9310, to be  placed on a preliminary  list. More information  will be available in  August in local papers.  The adult upgrading  B.T.S.D. programme  will likely begin in mid-  September or early October. Manpower sponsorship will be available  for up to 15 students, for  all levels.  Tenders recently let  for watermain upgrading  in Gibsons were discussed at the Gibsons Council Planning meeting on  Wednesday, June 28,  and the successful applicant was the local firm of  H. Wray Contracting.  ���The upgrading construction is lo take place  in four areas: Malian  Road, on the Sunshine  Coast Highway , Wells  Lane and Park Road.  Bids ranged from  $51,239 (H. Wray Contracting) to $101,138.32.  Because of the vast  range in the bids, there  was initially some concern as to whether the H.  Wray bid included all  specifications indicated  in the contract. After  subsequent confirmation  that it did, council was  extremely pleased to  award the contract to  that firm for two  reasons.  "If we can support  local business by hiring  local contractors, 1  believe it is our obligation to do so," staled  Alderman Diane Strom.  The secqnd reason for  feeling Satisfaction "is  that the H. Wray Contracting bid will complete the work below  budget. An allocation of  $60,500 had been set  aside for the watermain  upgrading project. On  the sewer scene this  week, thanks to a letter  from a resident who felt  that he was being unfairly charged, Gibsons  Council has discovered  what may be significant  inequities in sewer user  rates.

He has only one  connection to the sewer  main. He is, however,  paying the same user rate  as if he had five strata title, full-time residential  units, and five times the  rate of many businesses  which use much more  water than he does (ie.  hairdresser, dentist,  etc.).  User rates are charged  to offset the cost of  operating and maintaining the sewer system.  The present cost to most  sewer users is $3.50 per  month, or $42 per annum. Village Administrator Jack  Copland noted that user  rates have not increased  since I974, but an increase may be due to  cover recently escalated  maintenance costs.  After hearing a list of  the different kinds of  users who are all charged  the same rate in spite of  their varying quantities  of input into the sewer  system. Council referred  the matter to the Finance  Committee to study the  possible redefinition of  sewer user categories.  In a further matter of  "housekeeping", Administrator Jack  Copland informed council that letters had been  sent to 12 residents who  still had not connected to  the sewer system in accordance   with   Sewer  Connection By-Law No.  270, 1974.  This by-law states  that, where it is physically possible for a connection to be made with the  sewer system, property  owners are required to  complete that connection  within six months. If  they fail to do so, the  village may tender the  work, and add the  charge to future sewer  taxes.  Two of the property  owners have' sent letters  to council .requesting  that they be exempted  from having to make the  connection, based on  financial considerations.  lt was felt, however,  that it would not be fair  to exempt two owners  when the others had to  connect, and that the bylaw must be upheld, lt  was moved that a second  letter be sent to the property owners in question  advising them that they  must comply with the bylaw as stated in the  registered letter  jously sent to them,  iS village would have  to take action.  On a happier note,  Mayor Goddard pointed  out that the latest report  from the Waste Management Branch included a  letter of praise for Mrs.  Marty Clarke, operator  of the Sewage Treatment  Plant, commending hei  for markedly above-  standard levels of pollution control. Gibsons  can be justifiably proud  of Mrs. Clarke's work.  Island  tenders  called  Tenders have been  called, and will be opened on July 30, for contract to crush, deliver  and stockpile a total of  12,000 tonnes of gravel  to Savary and Keats  Islands, Gibsons Highway District, it was announced July 23 by  Transportation and  Highways Minister Alex  V. Fraser.  On Savary Island  8,000 tonnes of gravel  will be stockpiled. The  remaining 4,000 tonnes  will go to Keats Island.  The materials produced will be used for  maintenance on the  islands' roads over a  three year period.  They will be transported to the islands by  barge.  On Savary Island  stockpile will be on  foreshore unused right-  of-way while on Keats,  stockpile will be on  private property by  prearrangement with the  owner.  Completion of the  contract is to be on or  before September 15.

If you're in the market  for a camera or additional lenses lor your  camera, you might find  litis week's column helpful. Brian Warkman, a  cliniiiKTcial photographer and audio-visual  produce r living in  Garden Ui��y passes alone  shine tips on how to  cnoo.su the camera that  suits your needs and  fjockelbiKik,  ��� Many people are ret ur-  n'inglo lite Polaroid type  cameras today for basic  snapshots. Ifyou like the  idea of seeing your  photographs instantly  and don't mind the hefty  price of the film lhal  iocs along wilh the  privilege, ask your  Camera dealer lo show  jou ihe selection  available. Keep in mind  tboitgh, you may be able  to afford ihe camera, bul  you may find you can't  afford lo use it all that  often because of the high  pfice of the film. Advantages: convenient and  etjsy to use, instant pictures. Disadvantages: expensive film, no negalive  available to make additional prints.  ���For the people who  don't want lo spend a  great deal on a camera  and don'l like to  "fiddle", consider one  of the many kinds of ill)  automatic cameras on  tjie market. With careful  uSe, you can get good  quality snapshots ai a  tjlodesl price. You can  stjll gel the basic "aim  and shoot" type, or ones  with built-in Hashes and  telcpholo lenses. If you  do a lot of swimming or  snorkeling, you can even  gel one lhal can be used  underwater. Advantages: convenient and  easy to use, negatives for  additional prints. Disadvantages: small negalive  size does not make good  prints larger lhan snapshot size.  If you're ready lo lake  photography seriously,  consider one of the many  types of 35mm cameras  on the market. Some arc  as easy to use as "in-  slamatics" ... others  allow you full control  providing for more  creativity. Others are  automatic when you  need to shoot fasl and  simply, wilh ihe ability  lo override the automatic  mode when you want to  be creative.  Probably the least expensive models of 35mm  cameras are ihose with a  fixed lens and  rangefinder viewing.  They're as easy to use as  most 110 cameras but  allow you the versatility  of 35mm format. If you  think you will progress  beyond basic snapshot  shooting, it's worth a little more money to invest  in a more versatile  camera. Advantages:  relatively inexpensive,  versatile 35mm format  facilitates larger prints  from negs if desired, and  35mm slides. Disadvan-  lages: no creative control.  The most popular  cameras today are 35mm  single lens reflex cameras  Marine-industrial  strategy needed  ! by Ray Skelly - MP  I Comox-Powell River  a   t I am currently in the  process of trying to  organize a common  front of industrial labour  and community representatives to band  together and to lobby the  federal and Provincial  governments to immediately implement a  marine-industrial strategy.  I Although the Federal  government promised to  develop a marine-  industrial strategy over  two years ago, nothing  positive has happened.  And since then, over  $1,000,000,000 worth of  ship building contracts  have gone offshore, primarily to Japanese shipbuilders.  . Dome Petroleum  recently announced that  it will require five car-  Tiers for its LNG project  in British Columbia.  >Dome indicated last year  <that it was considering  ���the building of a  Shipyard in B.C. and the  Construction of two carriers in Canada. But with  the support of the  Federal and Provincial  governments, it appears  Dome will build all its  LNO carriers offshore  and there will be no  shipyard built in B.C.  That translates into a  loss of over 12,000 shipbuilding jobs.  Federal Commerce  and Navigation, Canada's third largest merchant fleet, plans to construct four coal carriers  r b your car begging lor  a second chance?

Like ears, every  manufacturer offers a  variety of models, one  sure to suit your tastes  and pocketbook. Here  are some of the features  available and the advantages of them. Brian suggests you decide whal  features you want, then  take a look al the various  brand names available.  Hold ihem...advance  and release ihe shulter lo  get the feel of ihem...see  how the lenses  change...how the film  loads...in other words,  check it out to make sure  you're comfortable with  it before you decide.  When it comes lo  brand names, Brian  pointed out that you gel  your money's worth wiih  any brand. He suggests  you talk it over with your  friends who have  cameras and find oul  how they like theirs...ask  for ihe opinion and  recommendation of ihe  camera dealer, but  whatever brand you  choose, you will be getting a quality camera for  Ihe price, it's strictly personal preference.  If you're thinking  aboul gelling additional  lenses for your camera  and you don't know  whal kind lo gel, Brian  suggests lhat you think  about what kind of  photography you want  to take...analyse whal  situations you find where  your present lens is inadequate and base your  choice on ihis criteria.

Two carriers will  be built in Korea and the  other two in Belgium.  Another 5,000 shipbuilding jobs will be lost  because this contract  went offshore.  Perhaps the worst example of our merchant  fleets going offshore is  CP Ships, Canada's  largest fleet. All CP  ships are registered in  Britain and Hong Kong  and the company maintains offices in Bermuda  and London. CP continues an 82 year old  tradition of staffing its  ships with British officers and employing  foreign crews. If CP  ships employed Canadians, it would mean a  minimum of 1,300 jobs  for Canadian seamen.  These are just three examples of how the lack  of a marine industrial  strategy hurts Canadians. Shipbuilding jobs  and contracts will continue to go offshore  unless we immediately  develop a marine  strategy.  Canada is the only industrial nation in the  world without a marine-  industrial strategy.  Hopefully this common-  front approach will effectively impress upon  the government the  urgency of developing a  policy that will benefit  Canadians instead of  jffshore shipbuilders.  For more information,  please phone the NDP  Constituency Office at  886-7726.  why not nail down  next winter's energy costs?  Fixing up the place this summer?  There'll never be a better time to  plug those costly energy leaks.  Some of these suggestions take  little effort���others a bit more. But  they'll all pay big dividends (in  energy and money) next winter.  Insulation for conservation  What, you still haven't insulated? Here's  something that may change your mind. At  today's energy costs, in an average home,  proper insulation to recommended  standards can pay for itself in less than  five years. Start where the work is  easiest and shows the best return for  your time and money - in the attic. Then  move on to areas like unfinished walls.  Ifyou live in a colder area of the province,  investigate the installation of double- or  triple-glazed windows.  To make it easy for you to act now, the  Canadian Home Insulation Program (CHIP)  will provide a grant of up to $500 and has  been extended to cover homes built before  1971. And, for qualifying Hydro customers,  our Energy Savings and Finance Plan  may provide short-term funding up to $500  at 10% interest.  Sealing the energy leaks  Even ifyou can't go for total insulation  , right now, by sealing all the gaps and cracks  in your home against air leaks you can cut  your heating energy bill by 20 to 30%.  Be sure you seal off holes in walls from  the inside to prevent damage from  trapped moisture.  Inexpensive gaskets, available from  building supply, hardware or department  stores, will seal drafts through electric  outlets.  To seal all openings-doors, windows, letter  slots (and don't forget the pet doors) -  you'll find an appropriate grade of  weatherstripping.  Energy efficient lighting  While you're renovating, cast a cost-critical  eye on your lighting. Today's lluorescent  lamps come in a range of "warmer" colours  and use just p the energy of comparable  wattage incandescents-which they  outlast by 25 to 1! They're ideal for utility  areas like kitchen counters, laundry,  workshop, basement and garage.  Decorating with a light touch  Decorating? Paint yourself a lower light bill.  Light-reflectant colours, such as olT-white  or ivory, not only "open up" small rooms  or rooms without windows-they also  require far less wattage for correct,  comfortable illumination.  The ceiling is the most important reflective  area and should take the lightest shade.  Then the walls: if you're using a dark  or panelled feature wall, oll'set it with light  colours on the other walls-or on cabinets  and counter tops.  Finally the lloors. The lighter your tiles or  carpets in the kitchen, bathroom, utility and  play areas-the lighter your lighting bill.  Tips for stopping drips  These days, hot water costs you about a  cent a gallon. So get set for a sobering  statistic. If a hot water tap is dripping at the  rate of one plurp a second, in a year that's  $20.00 down the drain. Find those  drips and fix Ihem. Fast.

Both occasions evoked  some questions, like how  the fair started and how  long the park has been  here.  When there was talk  of a recreation referendum back in 1977, Director Peter Hoemburg, for  Area "B", suggested to  the Welcome Beach  Community Association  that the Association express its needs to be added to the recreation  package. Cliff Connor  was contacted and asked  to find what was needed  in the area.  Taking a good look  around the area, Cliff  found a good piece of  crown land near the  Welcome Woods area,  District Lot 1623,  suitable for a playing  field.  A petition was circulated asking the  residents if they would  fully support their  representative to obtain  the crown land for  recreation land, namely  western portion of D.L.  1623, approximately 45  acres. Two hundred and  forty-six signed, and  plans proceeded.  Many letters later,  with the help of Ann  Pressley, secretary-  treasurer of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District,  and Mike Phelan, (the  latter still helping), the  Ministry of Parks, Lands  and Housing decided to  let the area have a Crown  Lease for twenty years at  $25.00 the first three  years. Then, before this  lease could be finalized,  the government in its  wisdom changed its mind  and gave the land in an  outright grant to the  regional district, in 1979.  The only condition is a  covenant on the land  that it be used for recreational purposes only.  The SCRD had the  land surveyed by Bob  Allen; Cliff had the area  marked off for the first  project which was to be a  fourteen foot perimeter  path with a path through  the middle. Volunteers  Art Perry and Bob Cocking, who are still working on the park, helped  clear the path for the  surveyors, saving on the  costs.  A federal public works  grant was obtained and  Jack Cawdell as project  manager hired four  helpers; these changed as  the work progressed, as  the fellows left for better  jobs. Jack ended up hiring women who did a  great job and Jack  volunteered many extra  hours.  They cleared the path,  and the wood from the  cut trees was offered to  those who would come  and clear it away.  Several loads were  delivered to senior  citizens.  Then came the time to  clear the 450 foot x 200  foot area for the playing  fields. The Nygard  brothers, Jim and Bob,  offered their logging  equipment for costs of  operating, but fully  donated their time.  The sale of timber  covered operating expenses.  The park was then  ready for volunteers to  pick rocks clear, ready  for planting. M & W  Transport smoothed it  off and did some work  on the road.  The school district  seeder planted and fertilized; there was patchy  growth at first, but grass  grew well in the sandy  soil.  Bob Cocking, Parks  chairman for the Halfmoon Bay Receation  Commission, sent out a  call for volunteers to further the development of  the park.  Four outhouses were  built by fellows doing  community work for the  courts; the cost to the  park - material only.  Vern's Backhoe dug  the holes for the  outhouses and put up the  posts to keep vehicular  traffic off the field.  The Halfmoon Bay  Recreation Commission  held a contest to name  the park; winners were  Susan Perry and  Dorothy Hall, as the  committee picked Connor Park for its name.  The prize money was  donated back to provide  the park sign made by  Jud Wickwire.  The official opening  was attended by Director  Jim Gurney of Area "E"  who is also chairman of  the Sunshine Coast  Regional District and the  one to declare it officially opened. Provincial  Park supervisor for the  Sunshine Coast, Al  Jenkins, represented  Minister of Lands, Parks  and Housing, James  Chabot. MLA Don  Lockstead and Cliff  Connor were also in attendance. As area "B"  director, I was the M.C.  A fitting opening for  an athletic park was the  three-and-a-half mile  trophy run. Margaret  Connor had the privilege  of starting the eleven entries off, three women  and seven men. All but  one finished, and he  dropped out because of a  muscle spasm. The winner of the ladies trophy,  donated by Wendy Mac-  Donald, was Carol  Feenstra, the first man in  was Roger Langevin, to  take the ICG Canadian  Propane Cup.  The Sechelt Legion  Pipe Band looked and  sounded fantastic as they  marched down the field  playing their stirring  Scottish music.  Preceding introduction of dignitaries, Alice  Horseman sang "O  Canada".  The cat judging by  North American judge  Marg Shaler provided  great amusement, plus  giving honour to the cat  entrants.  Children's races,  organized by Pauline  Clarke of the Halfmoon  Bay Recreation Commission, were a big hit.  After the raffle draw,  the Volleyball Tournament was underway,  with four teams competing; Halfmoon Bay  Volunteer Fire Department, Halfmoon Bay  Recreation Commission,  Damp Bay Six and  Brown and Brown. The  Brown and Browns won  the trophy.  A great day for the  community, with over  600 people attending.  The Country Fair  committee is comprised  of five people, Chairman  Peggy Connor,  Treasurer Donna Perry,  Publicity Carol Kozij,  PR man Larry Reardon  and a new addition this  year, Rupert Stoker.  This committee looks  after the publicity, the  arranging of events, collecting prizes, and  whatever else is needed  to get the fair going. This  leaves the members of  the organization free to  look after their own projects to raise money for  their groups. A charge is  made of seven dollars for  space. Monies collected  (the business people of  the area have been very  generous) go towards  managing the fair next  year. Extra money will  be put back into developing the park.  July 23, 1983, is the  date of the next Country  Fair and suggestions and  volunteers will be more  than welcome.  Plan your entry to  help make it an even bigger and better event. A  financial statement will  be issued to the Halfmoon Bay Recreation  Commission and to the  Welcome Beach Community Association for  public perusal.  The Connor Park is a  good example of what a  community can do for  itself to provide recreation. This is a Regional  Park that is being looked  after by community-  minded people, with the  support, when possible,  of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District.  Cliff Connor spent  many hours working1 at  the clearing of the park,  as well as planning, contacting people to make  this park a reality. All  that he really wants from  the public is that the  park be used and supported. He has had his  fun and exercise, now  it's your turn.

He many  intend to devour more  that evening; yet in  public he declines to  speak, smile, or even  look at you. This  phenomenon, the  Puppy-Snub, comes and  goes in individuals. It is  unpredictable save when  a young person wishes a  ride: then it disappears.  To avoid subjecting  yourself to Ihe Puppy-  Snub, follow this simple  rule: In greeting two or  more young adolescents,  't-A-J^t  SUNSHINE COAST  REAL ESTATE  Rose covered home on over  Va acre of land. 2 bedroom  beauty.

Consciously or  not, offspring have an  urge to see their parents  and teachers locked in  combat. The more  outrageous the report  that comes to your ears,  the more important that  you "clam up". If you  must act, do so in a spirit  of cautious enquiry.  Avoid any form of the  phrase "What's the big  idea?" Consider the  following sad example.  Example III:  Parent: "What's the big  idea, telling my kid 'I bet  I can prove your man is a  Sasquatch'?"  Teacher: "All 1 said was  'You'd better get moving, there's a whole gang  at the bus stop!"  Silence   would   have  been much better.

Locomotive  Amateur  Thought  Wild Ox  Mistakes  Debutante (Abbr.)  by Coast CASC  Subsequent to the discredited elections in El  Salvador comes news of  intervention by Hon-  duran forces. On June 27  Honduran troops crossed the border into El  Salvador to back up  6,000 Salvadorean soldiers mounting an offensive against FMLN  forces. Two Honduran  battalions, air lifted by  ten helicopters, landed  near San Fernando in the  Morazan province, the  scene of the action. The  FMLN commander said  that this is not the first  time the Honduran army  has intervened in El  Salvador, but this time  the invasion reached an  unprecedented scale.  The commander also  said that the most serious  implication of the invasion is the regionaliza-  tion of the conflict in all  Central America. It also  is in violation of the UN  resolution calling for no  intervention in the  Salvadorean conflict.  The commander went on  to say, "now we have to  fight Honduran forces  on Honduran soil".  Ruben Zamor, a FDR  representative, considers  this invasion to be an  American plan to stop  the struggle for social  justice in El Salvador.  He claimed that Honduras is taking the role  of the /Xrgentinian advisers who had to leave  El Salvador because of  the Falklands conflict.  Zamora has denounced  the Honduran invasion  at the United Nations.  Canadians can demand the neutrality of  the Honduran government: 1) Send telegrams  to the Embassy of Honduras, 350 Sparks Street,  Suite 403, Ottawa, Ontario KIR 7S8; 2) Send  letters to the editors of  newspapers opposing the  invasion.  An anti-US intervention campaign is also expected to be mounted  October 15 - 31, as a  Canadian part of a  World Front protest.  Other areas of concern  include Guatemala  where since the elections  of March, 1982 alone,  over 3,000 workers and  peasants have been  assassinated. In light of  these ongoing attacks,  the Guatemalan National Committee of  Trade Unions (CNUS) is  seeking international  solidarity from unions  throughout  the  world.  They need support in applying pressure to the  Canadian government  ind the Reagan administration in order to  snd the killings of  workers and peasants in  Guatemala.  In the US, too, a more  subtle form of repression  has been exercised in the  cancelling of the Ed  Asner TV show, "Lou  Grant", for his outspoken support of the democratic movement in El  Salvador. Previous presidents of the Screen Actors' Guild have castigated Asner for his humanitarian proclivities,  including the present  author of US foreign  policy in Latin America.  America.  The next meeting of  the local Central  America Support Committee will be promulgated in a later edition of this newspaper.

Already business failures in B.C. are up nearly 50 per cent over lasl  year while unemployment is at 11.2 per cent,  or 148,000 B.C. residents.  One of the prime victims of this current eco  nomic climate is small  business.  Small businesses are  the backbone of the  economy.. Small  businesses are your corner-store, the barber  shop, or the dry cleaners  down the road. In fact,  small businesses are  represented in every sector of the economy.  There are more lhan  900,000 small businesses  across Canada which  employ four out of len  Canadians outside ihe  public sector.  Small  businesses  are  Church  Services  innovative, community  builders and almost  always 100 per cent  Canadian-owned.  But the country is in a  recession and small  businesses face bankruptcies and the Federal  governmenl seems oblivious lo Ihe problem.  The Government's tight  money policies are  destroying the dreams of  those Canadians who  want to own and operate  their own businesses.  Even the banking community is warning the  government that bankruptcies will continue  unless interest rates come  down.  Unless there is prompt  and positive action,  business failures will  continue at record levels  by J. Wayne Rowe  One might think that  spouses caught up in the  turbulence of a separation would have enough  difficulties to face  without having to contend with the hurdles  placed in their path by  Revenue Canada.  Unfortunately there  are certain pitfalls that  await the unwary who  conclude a matrimonial  settlement without  regard to the tax implications.  One of these potential  hazards is contained in  Section 160 of the Income Tax Act. This section has particular application to the situation  where one spouse (say  the husband) transfers  property to his wife.',"  In these circumstances, Section 160 imposes a joint and several  liability on both the husband and the wife for all  taxes owing by the husband on the date of the  transfer. The wife's  liability, however, would  be limited to the fair  market value of the property transferred.  Thus, if the husband  owed substantial income  tax and was without  funds or more likely had  left the country, the wife  could find herself having  to pay her husband's tax  from the property that  she received by way of  settlement.  While it is difficult to  assess the extent to which  this problem arises, it is  clear from one case  decided in 1979 that  Revenue Canada is  prepared to invoke this  section if necessary.  In that case, the husband, pursuant to the  terms of a marriage contract transferred a family  home to his wife in 1967.  Six year later, in 1973,  the wife was assessed  $15,009 for her  husband's income tax  liability. Although the  amount was eventually  reduced, the wife was  held liable under this  Section 160.  One sure way to avoid  this result is to postpone  any transfers of property  until after the spouses  are divorced as the section applies only to  spouses. However, this  would frequently be impractical due to the  length of time that may  be involved. ���  Another way to protect oneself would be to  require the transferring  spouse to provide proof  of payment of income  tax in the form of the  Revenue Canada assessment notice.  Fortunately, in most  instances spouses usually  have a reasonable idea of  their partner's tax problems, and the problem  can then be dealt with, if  necessary.

Purchase of the truck  will be necessary if the  West Howe Sound Fire  Protection District is to  maintain its present  rating classification. The  result of falling into a  lower rating category  would be the increase of  all fire insurance  premiums in the area.  As the West Howe  Sound Fire Protection  District is administered  by the Village of Gibsons, but is funded by  and serves Gibsons and  Areas E and F, Gibsons  would want to share borrowing for the proposed  $250,000 expenditure  with the outlying areas,  based on population  assessment.  Areas E and F are  under SCRD jurisdiction, and any expenditures would have to be  approved in time to be  included in the 1983  SCRD budget.  Mayor Goddard  pointed out that, accor  ding to SCRD requirements, a referendum would have to be  held no later than  September in order to  work in with the SCRD  budgetary time frame. A  November referendum  would obviously not  meet such requirements.  | CHRISTIAN SCIENCE       Wednesday 8:00 p.m.  SOCIETY SERVICES In United Church  .

If you have a small  rowboat, why not get  them out to do some  fishing? It can help on  the food bill.  Flounders are quite  easy to catch in areas  where there is a sandy  bottom in depths from  25 to SO feet. A rod and  line can be used, but a  hand line is really better.  The boat should be anchored to prevent drifting with tide or wind. If  you do not have a small  anchor, a stone  "killock" is easy to find,  but hard to fasten to the  anchor rope. A heavy  piece of metal or an old  boom chain will do the  trick.  The sporting goods  store should have cotton  trolling line in 75 foot  hanks, a lead sinker (not  less than 2 oz.) and a  packet of bait hooks  (snelled, size 6, 8 or 10).  Cost: $3 to $4, depending on the size of the  sinker.  Wind the line on to a  small board or piece of  driftwood. Cut a pencil-  sized cedar or fir branch  about 24 inches long and  cut two 12 inch pieces  from the end of the line  for leaders and then  fasten the line to the  mid-point of the  spreader stick leaving a  24 inch tail to which the  sinker is fastened. Tie  the small pieces to each  end of the spreader stick  and then attach the hook  leaders to the end of  these lines. Bait the  hooks with sea worms or  small chunks of bait herring.  When fishing the line  is let down till the sinker  hits the bottom and the  line is kept taut by  holding it in your hand.  The bait is kept just off  Flight into fear!  by Carl Chrismas  The other day on a  news report there was an  interesting item aboul a  young man and his  father-in-law who went  for an airplane ride with a  friend. During ihe flight,  the friend turned the consols over lo ihe young  man and promptly died  of a heart attack. The  man had never flown, bul  wilh (he help of another  aircraft and pilot, put up  io help with ihe landing,  the slory had a less tragic  ending.  This true slory has  been ihe stuff and substance of many dreams  and fantasies over the  years, as well as the basis  of plots in best selling  novels and thrilling  movies. My true story is  of Del Pratt, my brother-  in-law who was road  foreman of Rayonier  camp al Mahala River on  the west coast of Vancouver Island, and a  blackout I lived through,  thanks lo ihe quick thinking of Del. li happened  like ihis.  Del, my sister Chris,  and myself had just  finished a large dinner,  preceded by a generous  cocktail, and we were  relaxing in the living  room of their family  quarters. A pickup truck  pulled up in front of the  BEER & WINE  MAKING  SUPPLIES  Hake your own  the cost!  ���^t ''Hil/ii  5o:-:s;3  'tutti***  house and Don Biese,  camp manager, charged  up the stairs and pounded  on the door.  "Del, we need two jack  hammers from Holberg  camp as soon as possible.  You'll have to take the  company boat and leave  about 4 a.m. tomorrow  to make the tide through  the narrows of Holberg  Inlet".  "Hoo, boy. That sure  messes up the day I had  planned for tomorrow,  bul if no one else can  go...well, O.K.!"  lt was at this point that  1 asked the foolish question. "What is the combined weight of the two  hammers?"  "Oh, about 160  pounds", replied Del.  "We've got at least an  hour before dark", I offered, "Why don't we  flip over there right now  and pick them up?"  "Hey! Thai would be  great!" replied Don.  "I'll get on the blower  right now and have them  on the float when you get  there!"  A short time later we  were tied up at the float at  Holberg camp and looking for the jack hammers,  but no one was around  and it soon was apparent  that Don had not been  able to raise them on the  radio. We grabbed the  first pickup we could find  with a key in it and headed up the valley for the  quarry. We found Ihe  hammers, loaded them in  the pickup, and headed in  a rush for the dock. The  sun had gone down and  dusk was already approaching.  After loading the hammers into the bird, one  in ihe baggage compartment and the other  tied down on the rear  passenger seal, we taxied  out and went storming  down the channel, trying  lo lift ihe heavily laden  little amphibian from ihe  water. I had lit climb  in a spiral to reach ihe  1500 feet we would need  lo cross ihe lillle pass  from Holberg Inlet over  lo Quaisino Sound and  the sile of ihe Mahala  lit  Sate  50%   DISCOUNT  on Chandeliers  & Table Lamps  Sale Starts Aug. 1 - 7  River camp. When I  figured we had iwo-lhree  hundred feet lo clear the  trees of the pass, I headed  inlo it, then sal back to  relax and cool off before  landing. It was a hot and  humid July day and we  were both wet from  perspiration.  We were part way  through the pass and 1  could still see the little  island in front of the  camp where we would  have to land. A stiff  westerly was still blowing  in from Ihe open Pacific  so we would have to land  in the lee of l he island and  taxi in to ihe float. We  were going to be later  than legal grounding  lime, but hopefully the  DOT would be none the  wiser, lt was then that it  happened.  Del told me later that  he was gabbing happily  away about the trip and  the advantages of an  airplane in a situation  such as this. He was watching the lights coming  on around camp and  wondering if the boys  had finished their ball  game before dark. Suddenly, he noticed the port  wing begin to sink and  the resultant drag was  beginning to turn the  plane toward the trees.  Alarmed, he turned to me  to wonder what in  h...and the sight that  shocked him into grabbing the controls and pulling the sinking bird away  from the reaching branches of that West Coast  forest was enough to  cause a non-pilot to pick  up his lunch bucket and  step oul the door!  1 was out cold! My  head lay back over the  seat; my mouth was wide  agape; I was chalky white  and looked for all the  world like death cooling  off!  Del had handled planes  in the air occasionally on  his many flights into and  oul of camp over ihe  years, bul had not landed  nor laken off. And a  choppy water landing in  the lee of an island in the  rapidly approaching  darkness didn't give him  much lime to decide what  to do. The firm decision  to land this thing  whatever the consequences, settled him right  down into what he had to  do. Trying to remember  all the motions that he  had observed over the  years of pulling oh flap,  trimming the prop and  elevators as best he knew  how, he aimed that bird  for his final ride into the  narrow gap between the  lied up log booms and the  rocky shore of the island.  He was nol much of a  swimmer and if he. survived the impending  crash, he wattled to be  dose enough lo shore for  thai one lasl chance.  It was at this point that  I began to hear voices.  And swearing. "Wake  up, you son-of-a-biscuit-  eater and fly this gosh-  dashed thing!" Those  were nol quite his exact  words but ihey are a  reasonable facsimile  therof. He was scared  and he didn't mind admitting it.  Thinking I was already  dead, his immediate reaction was most startling  when 1 began to over-ride  his control and then  spoke clearly, "O.K.,  Del. I'll take over now".  I'm sure it was only his  seat belt lhal kepi him in  ihe airplane. And the  sudden siring of profanity that burst from him in  expressing his relief cannot be printed in a familjl  newspaper.  The resl is history. It  took almost two years of  diagnostic procedures to  pinpoint my problem as a  'bundle branch block'  lhal led lo my eventual  grounding. Bul lo ihis  day, Del and I have recurring dreams.

I always had the best  luck during the last hour  before high tide. The  small ones can be cooked  whole after cleaning and  removing the head, the  larger should be filleted.  Most sole that you buy in  the fish shop is actually  flounder, but they seem  to think that it will not  sell if it is called  flounder.  There are many ways  to prepare "sole", the  simplest way is to dip the  fillets in flour or bread  crumbs and give them a  good bath of melted butter or oil and grill or  broil slowly and keep  well basted while it is  cooking. Salt and pepper  before removing from  the grill. Serve with  lemon or lemon butter.  If your young  fishermen do not catch  enough flounder for dinner, why not drop them  off in Gibsons for a  hamburger and show,  after which you talk the  "old man" into a quiet  candlelit meal overlooking Gibsons Harbour at  the Jokers Restaurant.
