 m  v  /���*��� i  m  m  add  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast    25* per copy on news stands November 26,1990   Volume 44   Issue 48  Gospel Rock  Killam said free to blast away  by Jod Johnstone  Developer Hayden KlUam la apparently free to Mow the lop off  Goapd Rock If he so wishes. That la the outcome of four action-  packed days in Gibsons which began with .early morning drilling for  bhsting oa Goapel Rock on November 20; differing legal opinions  from three sets of lawyers, one of thm later rescinded; a stop-work  order from the municipality, later claimed to be inappropriate; and  more hysteria in this moat controversial of municipal concerns.  Hie latest development, so far, In the constandy-breaking story  last week came when the municipal authorities advised the Coast  News that thdr lawyers, McKenzie, Murdy, and McAllister, had  concurred with a letter dated November 23, from Welsh and Gray,  a local law firm representing Killam, that Killam was free to Mast  on his own propeaerty without a petrmlt.  Earlier in the week, the town's lawyers had agreed with a law  Arm, contacted by the Frtends of Gospel Rock, that a permit was  needed before any Masting was done.  When Gibsons retsident Joyce     of the Municipal Act states that:  A work crew hired by developer Hayden Killam drilled 48 of 60 holes in preparation to Mast the top  six feet off Gospel Rock, before the Town of Gibsons served a Slop Work Order which tbcy  withdrew four days later. As of last Friday, 47 of the 41 holes had been refilled by persons  unknown. -Joel Johnalon.; Mow  Dayton noticed two men derailing holes in the top of Gospel  Rock in the eary morning hours  of Tuesday, November 20, the  alarm she sounded began  another chapter in the concerted  efforts to preserve the beloved  landmark which developer  Hayden Killam hopes to transform into a housing tract.  The ensuing outcry led  Friends of Gospel Rock to  mobilize who they could on  such short notice to stand over  proceedings; naturalists and  citizens to gathw and express  their concerns; and the Town of  Gibsons administration to  undergo a fretful six hour  scramble to deal with the crisis,  which culminated in Town  Planner Rob Buchan bringing  the work to a halt with a notice  from his office which, in summary, reads: "I wish to advise  (Killam) that Section 976(lXd)  Land...that is within an area  designated under Section  945(4Xd), shall not be altered  unless the owner first obtains a  development permit..."  Buchan, besieged by enquiries, went out to the site and  confronts Don Fowler of  Thunderbird Drilling and  Blasting and "got the impression they were instructed not to  talk too much."  But Buchan did discover the  60 hole pattern being drilled was  for the purpose of levelling the  top of Gospel Rock with the adjacent roadway with dynamite  on the next day.  Fowler, visibly uncomfortable with the situation told the  Coast News "This is no big  deal." But after the news had  spread, and over a dozen people  converg<ed on the scene (Friends  of Gospel Rock, incoming and  incumbent aldermen, concerned  citizens) the driller admitted this .-���:���';'���  was the reaction he had an- ,"������'  ticipated.  Buchan, back at his office '  pondering the situation, said "1 '  do not know what (Killam's)  plan is. From a point of view  legally, he is within the law and  rights and doesn't need a permit  to blast on private property.  "Killam enquired about  blasting some months ago...I  told him it was a bad public  relations move and that he  nreded a permit." Buchan  pointed out "Subsequent to  that, Killam came in when I  wasn't here and talked to Lorraine Goddard and Ralph Jones  who couldn't consult me."  Town Administrator Goddard said Killam had not asked  her specifically about Gospel  Rock. "What he said to me was  'do I need a permit for blasting'  and I said I didn't know of  such."  Buchan added "I think  Hayden Killam was sincere in  thinking he was within his rights  to go ahead and blast because of  hearing what he wanted to hear  the second time around.  "My initial reaction, yesterday morning.'Buchan claimed,  "was I didn't think we could do  anything about it. I would have  caught it...but when I was hit  cold, I wasn't sure, but I knew  we could do something and  would not allow blasting on  Gospel Rock."  Friends   of   Gospel   Rock  Please tum to page 13  Former SCRD chairman fears for waf rehed  Tetrahedron Wilderness Park sought  by Stuart Burnside  The question of a  Tetrahedron Wilderness area  was raised again at the  November 22 Parks Committee  Meeting, by long time Coast  resident and former SCRD  Chairman, Harry Almond, who  expressed concern for the apparent inaction on the subject.  The issue of a wilderness park  is not to be confused with the  ongoing conflict between the  Tetrahedron Alliance and those  who find their livelihood  harvesting trees. According to  Almond, the park in question  was proposed in 1974 by John  Hind-Smith, before logging in  the area was considered a  setious threat.  Hind-Smith, himself a 30  year resident of the Coast, says  that when he first introduced  the idea in 1974 it was met  favourably by the SCRD serv-  lies  the  in-  ing at the time, but that very little has been done until IS months ago when, spurred by a  perceived logging threat to the  area, John Hind-Smith and  Harry Almond brought the  matter back to the fore.  The area of concern  directly east of the area  Tetrahedron Alliance is  terested in, according to maps  provided by Almond and Hind-  Smith, maps with three different sources but sharing a  common theme.  The first map, an outline of  the original proposal by Hind-  Smith, establishes the boundaries of the park as following  roughly the 3500 foot elevation  line around the Tetrahedron  area, and forming a rough  triangle starting at approximately Tannis Lake, up to Rain  River Lake, down to Panther  Peak, and back to Tannis Lake.  The second map, issued by  the Ministry of Forests, has the  same basic outline as Hind-  Smith's, except that instead of  beginning the triangle at Tannis  Lake, it would begin to the east  of Edwards Lake, itself located  east of the area of concern to  the Tetrahedron Alliance.  The third map, supplied by -  lnterfor, the company doing  most of the logging in the area,  would place the beginning of  the wilderness park triangle  another mile further east to  Chapman Lake.  The main difference between  Forestry's outline and Hind-  Smith's, according to Almond,  stems from Forestry's definition  of a "wilderness" area as one  which must not have any road  access for at least one kilometer.  Almond and Hind-Smith,  acknowledging Forestry's  definition of "wilderness",  believe a compromise could be  reached regarding the boun-  Slams 'Enough is enough' group  Meredith bows out  daries of the proposed  wilderness area, ie. the current  ski and recreation area centred  ..around lakes Tannis, Gilbert,  Edwards, Mayne and Bachelor,  could not be included since they  clearly have existing and maintained access roads.  With regard to the lnterfor  suggestions for a wilderness  park, however, Hind-Smith is  adamant, claiming it cuts too  far into the Chapman Lake  watershed.  The watershed issue is central  to the argument of Almond and  Hind-Smith that prompt action  be taken toward the creation of  the wilderness park. According  to Hind-Smith, he hits a copy of  the report commissioned by the  SCRD and the Ministry of  Forests that states the Chapman  watershed is in "no danger"  from present logging.  Hind-Smith disagrees with  this assertion, saying he has  been in communication with a  knowledgeable source who  states that, although the report  Please turn to page 5  Parking problems  Access and parking at both Sunnycrest Mall and Marcorp  Development Corporation's new shopping cenlre at Highway  101 and Payne Road have come under the scrutiny of the  Ministry of Transportation and Highways (MOTH).  Frank May, representing Ihe new owners of Sunnycrest,  and Gibsons Town Planner Rob Buchan, met with Ray  DeGraff of MOTH and identified some of ihe problems surrounding the proposed expansion to the mall.  Buchan's report to Gibsons Council, November 20,  pointed out the present main entrance to the mall had poor  design, a lack of curbing along the east side of Sunnycrest  Road, and the current misuse of Sunnycrest Road allowance  for private parking purposes.  Mareorp's application for a Variance Development Permit  to reduce parking requirements for Iheir proposed new shopping cenlre has met a negative response from both the town  and MOTH.  Buchan stressed future Gibsons Bypass plans and the  substandard condilion of Payne Road would create problems  under Mareorp's existing proposal.  The Sunshine Coast Regional Dislricl Planning Committee  has agreed with the position of the town and are writing collectively to the Ministry to emphasize Iheir concerns.  by Jan Michael Sherman  At the end of the Sechelt  Council's last regular meeting  (November 21, 1990) before  Mayor-Elect MacLarty and her  new team are sworn in at noon  on December 3, 1990, the ever  irrepressible and unpredictable  Tom Meredith jumped up from  his chair and began handing out  unidentified xerox copies of  something he claimed - jokingly  - would prove he was "right."  The hand-out was a reprint of  a recent Vancouver Sun article  entitled "Why bike paths won't  work." It was an impish parting  dig at those recent candidates  who tried to fashion a telling  issue out of bike paths, walkways, and (even) pedestrian  overpasses in Sechelt.  But His Worship had bigger  fish to fry than just an oblique  comment on the relative merits  of one aspect of the campaign  as he perceived it.  With increasing emotion,  Meredith read from a prepared  statement which he later made  available to the Coasl News.  "For years at election time",  he began, "We have heard the  old adage 'You can't do  anything unless you are  elected���so do and say most  anything to get elected' - and  this still holds true."  The underlying cynicism in  the Mayor's opening words  brought something of a hush to  the already quietly attentive  Rockwood Annex, Significant  looks were discreetly exchanged  among members of the public  gallery, which included Ms  MacLarty and newly-elected  aldermen Peggy Wagner and  Art Whistler.  "I think this past election in  .Sechelt is a pretty good example  of the application of this  adage", Meredith continued.  "When an unidentified group,  changing its name, purports to  support a full slate, without the  agreement of some of the candidates and without their agreement on the total platform, it is  a sorry state of affairs."  (Meredith was referring to Ihe  campaign activities of 'Enough  is Enough' a well-heeled  pressure group who first made  waves in Setchelt when they took  out full page newspaper ads  urging the defeat of the Block  Seven referendum.  "It is of interest to note that  the 'group' finds that Sechelt  has been plagued with fiscal irresponsibility for the past two  years", the mayor declaim^,  his voice rising with ill-disguised  anger, going on to say that  "Three of the six aldermanic  candidate I presume support  this spurious assertion���having  served on Council for those  same past two years."  Meredith paused for a moment, took his attention away  from his written statement and  continued without referring to  it.  "I sincerely believe that the  District of Sechelt has had good  government   these   past   two  Plme tun to page 10  The out-going Meredith Condi Im Sechdt relaxes for posterity.

A Free Zone  with meaning  Not so many weeks ago in this space, we called for the  immediate withdrawal of all Canadian forces from the  Persian Gulf. Apparently not enough of the right people  were listening, although we are heartened by the fan that,  slowly but surely, voices are beginning to be raised with  regard to this pathetic and dangerous misadventure.  But given a Defense Department tender of last week,  time may well be running out on a goodly number of  Canadian servicement and women.  The order, placed in the November 13 edition of the  Government Business Opportunities pmodical invites bids  on 800 "...pouch(es) for human remains, water and rot  resistant...94 inches long by 30 inches wide."  We must conclude that the least popular PM since the  advent of modern polling feels he has nothing to lose by  wasting a goodly number of Canadian lives in the service  of American oil ambitions. John Thompson, a Canadian  military expert (a term fast achieving oxymoronic status),  says that 800 body bags suggests to him that probably a  brigade of (about) 5000 troops might be what (Mulroney)  has in mind as his next move.  Another voice which Canadians seemingly have not  been paying enough heed is that of Mulroney's bellicose  little bulldog of an External Affairs Minister, Joe Clark.  "We are closer to war (now) than we have been since  Korea!" barks the PM's personal two-legged pit bull, and  still Canadians play ostrich in the shifting sands of time  fast running out.  This unconscious ploy of mass denial would be  laughable, were not the possible consequencs so dire.  But it is consistent with the herd instinct that harbingers  of unpleasant realities are ignored until it is too late to act  effectively.  Take the GST. At a time when Ottawa has long since  printed and shipped out to the provinces millions of pamphlets explaining and propagandizing this new miracle tax,  Canadians are just now (and half-heartedly) suiting to  register their disapproval.  To hell with GST-free zones. Let us immediately force  this crippled Prime Minister to declare the Persian Gulf a  "Canadian-Free Zone"���and pull out.  What service!  Far be it from us to tell the new Gibsons Council its  business. It has a plateful of problems to deal with and has  a better chance of rising to the challenge, on paper, than  any council in recent memory.  But really, one area that should be pondered is the  delivery of legal services to the town. The legal experts apparently get an opinion from one source on Gospel Rock  blasting and agree; later they receive an opposing opinion  and again agree. Is this good enough?  ���from our files ���  We Remember When  S Y.EARS AQO  Deputy Minister of Education Jim Carter announced  that Bowen Island would be removed from School Oistrict  46 and Incorporated Into West Vancouver's School District  45.

Meditations on the road behind  Walter Mitty's bastard child  Like most kids desperately in  search of direction, rather than  advice, I spent a good deal of  time observing the verbal and  (most especially) the non-verbal  behaviour of the adults in my  life. If I could somehow apprise  myself of just what these earth-  bound mini-gods were themselves ultimately after, if I could  figure out what personal priority held sway in their hearts, then  perhaps I might stumble across  the key to temporal happiness  and fulfillment.  I learned that, for the most  part, grown-ups talkeed a lot  about meeting their needs, but  spent most of their time and effort in a scramble to satisfy their  In a nutshell  desires. Getting everything they  wanted seemed to take precedence over just about  anything else, including, at  times, their children. (As a kid  I'd always believed that 1 was  what my parents had wanted  most of all, aside from each  other).  In short order, I concluded  tlnft what I hungered- for most  ingife went beyond the satisfaction of needs and desires. My  penultimate goal in life was  simply to do as I pleased. But it  was a goal consistently thwarted  by authority figures of good intention (but bad manners), who  employed every conceivable carrot and stick (mostly sticks, if  memory serves), to convince me  that a life dedicated to doing  what I pleased would only lead  to trouble.  I tried to explain that the prospect of some kind of (manageable) trouble was actively spurring me on, and fazed me nol a  whit. I ached for the trouble  that comes with adventure, exploration, and discovery. It was  the bland stuckness of life lived  too far back from the edge  which frightened me the most.  It took me some 25 years,  however, to understand that  before I could do what I pleased, I had to figure out just what  it was that pleased me in the  first place. This provesd to be a  process more global in scope  than I had anticipated when  first I set out on my quest.  At first, I thought I had only  to determine what I liked, to  know what pleased me. What a  laugh! I' like my German  Shepherd, but when she steals  and devours a 20 pound turkey  about to be served to a dozen  famished pilgrims, I am far  from pleased.  Finding out what I like involves trying absolutely  everything in sight, being disappointed more often than not,  and waiting for that glorious  moment when something unknown being sampled explodes  into my consciousness with the  long sought-after verdict "I  don't just like this���1 positively  love it."  Then comes the waiting  period, during which time the  things that I "love" vie for the  priviledge and the opportunity  to become one of my .acquired  tastes. In my personal hierarchy, acquired tastes are those  things which never grow stale,  never fail to please me, and  never let me down in any way.  But, at some point 1 cannot  recall, I realized that what  pleases me did not, in the last  analysis, equate to doing as I  please. Doing what 1 please  ultimately boils down to having  the wherewithal! to do precisely  what I want, and in my own  good time.  This particular freedom has  proven to be the most slippery  of them all, if only because to  attain it, one must somehow renounce all ambition.  To take this radical step,  however, would be to turn a  blind eye to personal achievement, and a sense of achievement gives much meaning to my  life.  Having thus squared the circle, and having boxed myself in  in the process, I have opted for  the only viable alternative.  I will do what 1 please when I  can afford to, and only hope  that when I am otherwise  engaged, nothing particularly  exciting will turn up.  But my bags and my heart  will be ready to leave at a moment's notice.  (I never dreamed doing what  I pleased would involve so much  compromise).  A little descriptive phrase  by S. Nutter  As I trundle along these days,  reading, listening to radio,  keeping half an eye on TV, bits  and phrases, ideas even surface  from time to time and I jot  them down on a pad of yellow  copy paper. When the pads are  full I riffle through them, picking oul anything that still looks  interesting and throw the pads  away.  The trouble with this go-  along (you could hardly call it a  system) is that you get these  items, intriguing maybe looking, but out of context of  course, and not ascribed to  anybody or anything, which  you simply cannot dredge up  any memory about at all. It's  like people's first names and  telephone numbers carefully  printed out on match folders,  and in the morning who in hell  can that be.  The latest little puzzler of this  sort is a one-liner obviously jotted down hurriedly, in quotation marks, reading in full:  "...looking more and more like  a shepherd who has eaten his  sheep".  Well, it's a good, even arresting descriptive phrase, but I  couldn't for the life of me  remember where il came from,  and it began to dog me a bit.  Obviously here we have a  description of someone, a man I  would think. .Someone else I  would think. A person doesn't  go to his glass in the morning  and have it occur to him that he  is looking more and more like a  shepherd who has eaten his  sheep.  Also this person, call him  Harry, has to be someone he  sees quite a lot of, because of  the 'more and more' aspect. At  some previous time then he  looked just a little like a  shepherd with a yen for shish-  kabob...?  I think if I were an editor I  would pencil out the 'more and  more', leaving us with still a  pretty telling phrase: Looking  like a shepherd who has eaten  his sheep.  But then again, what does a  shepherd who has eaten his  sheep look like really? Obviously not a skinny type, but this has  got to be a matter of expression.  Something more than just a  dribble of mutton fat off the  chin.  Something in the eyes  maybe? A furtive thing? Or a  heavy-lidded complacency with  a gleam of secret satisfaction  (well that will do for the little  baa-baa's). Or is it a totally  stricken look, the ultimate  breach of trust? A kind of  Judas Iscariot? Or is it only apprehension���where can he get  another job? Another  supply...?  Best perhaps we try to think  of someone, somebody we  know who might possibly look  like a shepherd who's eaten his  sheep. Jimmy Swaggert? He has  certainly at least bled his flock,  but there they all still are and  they seem to enjoy what he does  to them.  Some unscrupulous financier  perhaps. This would seem to be  a likely group alright. No question that they gobble up a lot of  sheep, but do they look as if  they do? I think not. These guys  don't really react to eating their  sheep. They seem to think it's  just some kind of professionalism.  Politicians then, the leaders,  elected shepherds of us all. Why  didn't we think of them at the  beginning. But here again is a  problem. I can't think of a one,  Premier, Prime Minister or  President, who has any look  about him of having eaten his  sheep. Rather, when we see  them on the screens these days,  beseiged as they almost always  are with crowds of media, being  battered perhaps with one shrilly repeated minor question  which it is hoped will be embarrassing, the effect is that, more  and more, the sheep are perhaps  eating the shepherds.  Is there no one then? Going  back a bit I think of at least one.  Stalin. Stalin looked exactly like  a shepherd who had eaten his  sheep; and if we go back to the  early footage of his career, we  find that in fact he looked more  and more like a shepherd who'd  eaten his sheep.

This ad was credited to two  of my opponents, Carol Adams  and Maureen Clayton. They  have since disclaimed the ad but  have publicly stated that they  saw and approved of the contents of the ad before its  publication and furthermore  nobody has identified themselves as the author or  originator of the ad.  It is important that the inaccuracies contained in the ad be  corrected as a matter of record:  1. All seven seats in the election for school board were not  challenged by members or supporters of Sunshine Coast  Parents for French (SCPF).  Shirley Hall has publicly denied  any such affiliation or sympathy with SCPF, for example.  2. No member of SCPF has  statesd any intention to reinstate  Early French Immersion (EFI)  in the public schools here. The  program actually serves 13 oer  cent of its school population in  the grades it is present. It has  not been expensive to this  school district ud any child has  been able to enrol, thereby ensuring that it is not "elitist".  3. The court action brought  by petitioners���all parents but  not all SCPF members���has  not cost the taxpayers anything  because the school board has  not yet paid the outrageously  high bill. The bill should be  "taxed" before the district forwards payment.  4. The petitioners have indicated a willingness to attempt  to settle the issue of the process  by which the school board  makes decisions, out of court  thereby avoiding any further  legal fees an appeal would involve. According to the school  board's lawyer from Davis &  Co., the board has refused to  follow this advice given by him.  5. I, Mary Findlay, am not  the president of SCPF. My term  ended in tate April when elections were held and Elaine Peers  became president.  6. Although I officially  changed my name from Mary  Bland to Mary Findlay (my  birth name) some time ago���the  name was not registered on the  voters' list. In order to be a can  didate for school trustee my  name had to be on the voters  list, according to the returning  officer, Malcolm Sluuiks. I  made several inquiries in this  regard and was told repeatedly  that I could not run as Mary  Findlay. So I had all my printed  material completed with the  same name as would appear on  the ballot���Mary Bland.  7.1 ran in .Sechdt because I  was asked to do so. All that is  required are two constituents  from the electoral district to  nominate a candidate. A school  trustee cannot in good conscience favour children of one  area over any others in providing educational opportunities.  My involvement and  background in the school  system stand as a testimonial to  the fact that I am a multi-issue  person with regard to my candidacy for school trustee.  I am sorry for any  misunderstanding that has  arisen over this ad or my candidacy. Thank you for this opportunity to address the public  on this matter.  Mary Findlay  Reader claims BC Tel sell swell  Editor:  The option being offered by  BC Telephone for Sechelt residents to have free access to the  city of Vancouver is a great opportunity, particularly in  today's information driven  world.  Toll free service would allow  students, teachers, researchers  and others to tap into the Vancouver Public Library's extensive research files. New modem  services at the library will be on  line next summer when the toll  free Sechelt service would start.  The toll free service would allow  unfettered access to the University of BC, to some of Canada's  leading hospitals and medical  clinics ��� for example to call a  bedridden friend or to request  information ��� and to the best  entertainment in the province.  You could buy your theatre  tickets, book you hotel room  and notify friends of your visit,  all toll free.  Honestly, the ability to call  Vancouver any time without a  toll would help everyone from  truck mechanics seeking a part  to grandparents wanting to talk  to the children.  Aside from these obvious advantages of a toll free link to  Vancouver is the convenience it  would provide for a great  number  of Sechelt  residents  who are struggling to work via  fax, modem and phone with  Vancouver from their electronic  cottages. These people ��� part  of a dynamic trend ��� nesed not  commute if they can set up their  office right here on the coast  where their paycheques are  spent. A toll free phone link  with the city could be an enormous economic boon to .Sechelt  while reducing ferry traffic.  Vote yes for the toll free service to Vancouver. You lifestyle, your children and your  community will be the better for  it.

Ever since the  re-election of the Conservatives,  Ihe opposition parties have  made the GST an issue of par-  tisan politics of the worst kind.  Should we admire the  courage and wisdom of the opposing parties to be against the  tax? 1 say NO, not unless they  propose a concrete alternative,  whose consequences are as  specifically known and spelled  out as the consequences of the  GST. They are not asking you  to be against the GST���though  their words may falsely seem to  say thai. They are saying���rise  up against the Conservative  Party, support us.

The hypocrisy of this stance is  somewhat amusing. If their  same arguments were applied to  their own field they would find  their medicine cabinets bare.  There is one certainty in the  use of such substances be they  herbicides or drugs, and that is  there never will be definitive  answers on all potential effects.  Most reasonable people will  continue to weigh the benefits  against the known side-effects,  consider the risks, and then act  accordingly.  Such people looking at herbicide use in forestry in BC today, would quickly surmise that  relative to human health, the  operations are obviously  benign.  If the good doctors of St.  Mary's are looking for meaningful issues to address in the  human health field, one would  think it unnecessary for them to  wander sp far afield. May I suggest they start with the pervasive  abuse of prescription drugs.  R.M. Giza  Gibsons  'suckered'?  ments, or what we (the NDP)  might do with our peculiar set  of priorities. Trust us, but don't  trust the PC's.  Don't get carried away with  our past record, we've changed  (HolHo!). Just look how low  we will stoop, jeopardizing the  very institutions of government  in Canada with every trick we  can think of, to save you from  the GST. If we have nothing  specific to offer instead, just  trust us. When we are in power  we will find a way���jusi don't  ask us what it may be. Fighting  the GST, we think, is our best  chance of election next time  around, because none of you  like taxes, right?  So our municipal ballot will  ask the citizens of Gibsons to  join in these partisan politics, by  inviting you to vote against the  tax. And I think it's a disgraceful abuse of our electoral  process.  I offer a parable. A man  stands at a fork in the road. One  fork leads down a path abundantly clear in its hardships and  destination. The other is a complete unknown. Down the other  fork may be quicksand, washouts, overflowing rivers, the  very gates of Hell. A serpent advises the man: "You know  where the first fork goes and  you don't want to go there, do  you? Take the other fork. Trust  me!"

Renaud, left, leaves Curator Jean MuntWI,  right, in charge as David Morgan and Jennifer MacKowan do a Utile out of dais study.  ���Joel JohruloM photo  An exhibit in Sunnycrest Mall  Art students make mark  Elphinstone students are  making their mark on the  graphic arts scene with their  first exhibit last week at Sunnycrest Mall.  The Career Preparation Program, instructor Jude Renaud  has nurtured since starting out  with six Grade 12 students, has  now blossomed into an exhibit  featuring 85 works of art and  photographs. It has the makings  of the first work co-operative  program on the Sunshine Coast  for grade level students.  Five students have sold works  to Sunnycrest shoppers at the  exhibit, which they designed, set  up and conducted with the  blessing of the mall, who  donated the space in the vacant  Knitwits section.  Ii "What happened here," says  Marketing Director for Sunnycrest, Batyah Frerhw, "is that  they asked for a space two  weeks prior to the end of the  month so I offered this space  free of charge."  This is what the students  wanted, Renaud says, and it is  just the beginning of a series of  displays they hope will result in  a permanent home for their  travelling show. The gallery of  visual works' will be at the  Roberts Creek Hall from  November 30 to December 8. It  will then move to the Women's  Institute Hall in Gibsons for a  December IS opening.  The students have received  approval from the Town of  Gibsons to put on a display at  City Hall in Council Chambers.  Renaud adds that both the  Town and the School Board  want the class to put on a  presentation, but she and the  students will hold off until the  new council and board  representatives are in place  before they deal with that prospect.  Meanwhile, Renaud sings the  praises of the dedication being  shown by her class and has been  proud to hear positive responses  and commentary from the exhibit's visitors.  The professionalism they are  displaying in both works and attitudes, have led to students being placed with local businesses  such as E & E Photography.  Photographers June Boe and  Ted Peters have taken students  under wing, and Photoworks in  Trail Bay Mall is holding out  for one of their own too, Re-  nand says.  L     >!

It  will also help fund the purchase  of an Amiga 2000 computer so  that the class can progress into  the computer generated art  field.  One of the first bright lights  to shine is Patricia Hammond,  who was chosen out of a field of  90 submissions by professional  and amateur artists to display  her work at the Sechelt Arts  Centre Juried Arts Show. She  has also been invited to carry on  a display of her works at the  Showpiece Gallery in Gibsons.  The experience that the  young artists are gaining from  the presentation work, will also  be .aided by marketing spwaMU  Fremes stepping into class to  share her knowledge towards  the selling of thdr works.  Renaud hopes the students'  confidence will grow as they  receive more and more feedback  from the community at large.  Fears for  watershed  Continued from Page 1  is thorough and comprehensive,  it draws largely on the existing  information of othetr watersheds in the province that have  litde in common with the Chapman watershed.  Hind-Smith, stating that he  has seen lnterfor maps depicting proposed roads into the  heart of the Chapman watershed, "doesn't understand why no  action has been taken to ensure  this doesn't happen."  He states that all interested  parties (the SCRD, local logging  interests, the Forest Ministry  and the public, represented by  Hind-Smith and Almond) are in  agreement that a Tetrahedron  Wilderness Park is at least a  possibility.  Hind-Smith, himself a  Tetrahedron Alliance member,  has .been unsuccessful in turning  the Alliance's attention away  from the recreational area and  focusing at least some of its  energy on the wilderness park  and the possible harm to the  watershed.  "If the recreational site is  made open to public use before  the wilderness park is established," asserted Hind-Smith,  "there will be litde to stop the  logging interests from moving  into the area of the proposed  wilderness park and, therefore,  the watershed."

Coast News, November 26,1990  community news  RCMP in an emergency  by .George Cooper, M6-M10  Someone witnesses an accident or a misdemeanor and hurries to the police station at night  to report, rings the doorbell. No  answer. Walks away grumbling? Or turns to the telephone a  few feet away at the side of the  street?  If no coins are available, dial  0 and the operator will put the  call through. Within second of  giving the information to the  police dispatcher the officers in  the patrol cars are apprised of  the information and are responding to it.  From a private telephone a  call to 886-2243 will connect  you to the police at any time in  the 24 hours of the day. During  office hours the call is taken by  the staff in the Gibsons RCMP  building and the information  immediately passed to the officers for action.  After hours, dialing 886-2245  puts the caller directly in touch  with the RCMP Telecom-  munication   Centre   in   Van-  COUVCT.  "We bought a line connecting us with Gibsons RCMP,"  the Centre's supervisor, Sandy  Vogstad told us, "which means  the line is open only for calls to  886-2245. After office hours in  Gibsons the clerk there flips a  switch and all calls to that  number come directly to us in  Vancouver. We can immediately radio the patrol cars. All this  within 10 or 15 seconds of  receiving the call."  The Telecommunications  Centre, one of many in the province, serves Sechelt detachment  by a separate direct line. For  short, the Centre is referred to  as '43' by the RCMP here.  "The line is available only for  citizens' calls," Sfuidy emphasize.  AU calls are taped and retained for one month," she continued, "If an officer needs information regarding a motor  vehicle license for example, we  can provide it within seconds."  In a motor vehicle and injury  situation, for instance, '43' can,  besides the officer on patrol,  call the ambulance, tow truck,  fire, and any other agency required.  "In a situation where an  RCMP member needs another  member for back-up, '43' attends to it with no delay at all,"  Constable Jim McDonald told  us. "The old ways with local  dispatchers, sometimes new on  the job, occasionally ted to  some confused situations."  "But no errors with '43'," he  said.

We'll use the telephone to give  the information to the RCMP  members. It is very important,  however, for any following investigation by the police, that  they have the caller's name and  address for future referral."

ELECTION REFLECTIONS  Folks with a sense of rumour  had good pickings in the Gibsons municipal election,, particularly concerning campaign  funds. Let's have open-to-view  lists of donors next time, in  1993.  The voters' total grew to 1849  on election day. Since 998  voted, the percentage voting is  about 55 per cent. Terrific?  H'mmm. Better than usual, yes,  but that leaves 45 per cent that  remained buried like clams in  the mudflats of apathy.  Good to see Joe Horvath a  candidate again for school  board. Joe was on the board for  several years finishing up as  chairman before he resigned in  December, 1975. He had also  been chairman of the Finance  and PR committees.

"We desperately need donations of cash, food, and clean  clothing", Eileen Spencer  stresses, a hopeful catch in her  voice. "But we would also like  to take this opportunity to  thank organizations such as the  Royal Canadian Legion Branch  109, Super Valu, Ken's Lucky  Dollar, Gibsons Building Supplies, Henry's Bakery, local  churches, load stores and���of  course��� many individuals who  have made personal donations."  Ms Spencer feels that part of  the reason the Food Bank has  fallen on hard times���and only  a small part���has to do with its  location. "The steps at Ken's  appear to be too steep for some  folk to navigate", she noted,  adding that "You can reach the  Food Bank and Nifty Thrifty's  by the lane at the back of  Hunter's Gallery."  Spencer hopes to be able to  weather the Christmas/New  Year's period, and then regroup  in the New year. But she can't  do it alone.

Eric Small  MAYOR ELECT  byJaal��Ldflfcm,.M,MMl  Roberts Creek is lucky to  have such a talented, experienced dancer as Denise O'Brien living here. Denise O'Brian has  spent an illustrious career dancing the world over with the Anna Wyman Dance Theatre, a  contemporary dance troupe  from Vancouver. During her 10  year career with Anna Wyman,  Ms O'Brian has danced her way  around Europe several times.  One of the greatest honours  of her career was to be ptf of  the first modern dance company  invited to tour China. This was  in 1980. Ms O'Brian performed  as a soloist to audiences of over  2000, all of them dressed in the  Mao uniform. Her hosts, the  Chinese dancers, would perform in sumptuous costumes  and make-up, only to scrub  their faces and don the  customary plain blue uniform  of the regime afterwards. As an  honoured guest of the Communist Party, the Anna Wyman  Dance Theatre was treated  royally, not only to food, accommodations and all forms of  courtesies, but also with invitations to edanoe theatre.  All Chinese, O'Brian says,  are dancers, and those who  choose to dance professionally  are government supported. The  Chinese dancers are expert  technicians dancing with incredible skill and grace. Ms  O'Brian was in awe when asked  by one of the accomplished  Chinese dancers to teach her.  There were other incredible  sights and adventures in India  and Mexico, but the most  prestigous was the Dance Company's New York debut. To  dance in New York gives a company recognition.

Yet, to dance in New  York is unquestionably a climax  to a damn's career. Denise  O'Brian has seen the bright  lights, thrilled the audiences,  heard the applause. Now she's  here in Roberts Creek to raise a  family and to teach dance.  Although a contemporary  dancer, Ms O'Brian's background was in ballet. In her early years she was a student of  Gwetnyth Lloyd, founder of the  Royal Winnipeg Ballet Company and first lady of dance in  Canada. Later, she travelled to  London for two years of advanced studies at the Royal  Ballet School. In London she  danced in her first film. Nearby  in Germany, she performed as a  classical soloist with the Mainz  Bailer. There were also many  summer sessions at the Banff  School of Fine Arts.  Denise O'Brian is now  teaching ballet, contemporary  dance and creative dance for all  ages. Classes are held in Gibsons and Davis Bay. Call Demise  O'Brian (886-3831) for more information.  FITNESS  The last after-school fitness  session at Roberts Creek  Elementary will be November  22 with classes beginning again  January 8 in the New Year.

I shall not fail you.  MARGARET McCAUGHAN-MORRISON  Motorhomes and Pickup Campers  New .and Used at Wholesale Prices  HAPPY HOLIDAY MOTORHOME       886-9025  RENTALS, SALES ft SERVICE ltd.     888-8481  if  m  |1991 Autoplan Changes  [PREMIUMS  Who pays more?Why?  Based on past experience and  projections, ICBC requires  4.S per cent more premium  income in 1991 - 3 percent to  pay for claims and improved  Autoplan benefits, plus I.S  per cent to offset the impact  of the federal Goods and  Services Tax.  Each year. ICBC  determines which coverages,  territories and vehicle uses  have increased or decreased  in relative claims cosl.  If your premium is changed  more than the average, it is  because of the various factors  which affect insurance rating:  the value, age and use of your  j3j| vehicle, where you live, what  Sit coverage you choose and  where you are on the Claim-  Rated Scale.  Compulsory Coverage  The largest pan of your basic  Autoplan insurance is made  up of liability coverage (to  protect you if claims are  brought against you by  others) and No-Fault Accident coverage. Premiums for  these coverages, including  extended liability, are being  increased, on a province-wide  average, by 4 per cent for  claim-free motorists. As we  mentioned above, depending  upon where you live and the  coverage you choose, the  change in your premium may  differ from the average.  Collision &  Comprehensive  Each year about a third of all  vehicle models are "aged"  and the collision premium is  adjusted lo reflect decreased  value. Collision premium  increases may apply to other  vehicle models.  Comprehensive coverage  premiums are also adjusted to  reflect claims experience,  vehicle value, use and  territory. Sharp increases in  windshield, theft and  vandalism claims have led  ICBC to increase premiums  for Comprehensive coverage  by an average IS percent.  Uninsured Motorist Protection  (UMP) will cost $3 more.  GST Impact  When you buy your Autoplan  insurance you will not pay the  7 per cent GST on your 1991  Autoplan premiums. Financial  transactions of this nature are  exempt.  However, ICBC will be  required to pay the GST on  many goods and services it  purchases.  ANY GOOD  NEWS?  Yes. More and more people  are participating in carpools  and we've made a change thai  will make carpooling an even  better deal. In the past you  could drive a vehicle rated lor  "pleasure only" to and from  work on only 4 days in a  calendar month. We've increased that to 6 days so lhal.  even in the longer months of  the year, four carpool members who own pleasure-rated  vehicles con share the driving  to and from work without  relating their vehicles, as long  as each of them drives to work  not more lhan 6 days in the  calendar month. The change  lo 6 days also applies to some  other vehicle use classes. Ask  your Autoplan agent to be  sure you are ratesd correctly.  Increased Weekly  Benefits  As of January I. 1991  accident victims who qualify  will receive increased  compensation for lost wages.  ICBC is increasing the maximum weekly indemnity from  $200 to $300 provided that,  does nol exceed 75 fter cent of  the victim's gross weekly  income at the time of the  accident. This will apply to all  new claims as well as to all  outstanding claims. Payments  will not be retroactive  but will start at the new  level in January 1991.  Short Term Savings  Prior to January I, 1991 a  surcharge of 5 per cent of the  annual premium has been  charged to people licencing  and insuring their vehicles for  periods of less than 12 months  (short term licence and  insurance). This surcharge has  been reduced to 4 per cent  (minimum $20) to make the  short term option even more  affordable.  WHAT ELSE?  Territories  For insurance rating purposes.  BC is divided into 14  territories. In the past your  Autoplan agent asked where  your vehicle was principally  operated in determining your  premium. Now. for most  vehicles, the territory is  defined as where the vehicle is  "garaged" that is. "primarily  located when nol in use". In  most cases, this would be the  vehicle owner's home  address. This and other  territorial changes have been  made lo accurately reflect  claims experience in different  parts of Ihe Province.  Commercial Rate  Classes  As of January I. 1991. new  value ranges and rale classes  apply to commercial vehicles  lo account lor increases in Ihe  price of new vehicles and  deregulation in the industry.  The dividing line between  lighl and heavy commercial  vehicles is now set ai 5.(XK)  kilograms and operating  distances have been redefined.

Their next exchange, December 3, will lie a ceremonial passing of the Town Key to  mark the beginning of Small's term for the next three years. -Joel Johutoae pinto  by Joel Johnstone  Mayor Diane Strom presided  over her last Town of Gibsons  council meeting last Tuesday  amid the glare of Channel 11  camera lights, news media  faces, a crowd made up of a mix  of council-elects, and incoming  Mayor Eric Small (notepad in  hand), regular attendants for  regular concerns, flushed faces  from the day's fresh developments, and a subdued trio of  aldermen.  The meeting agenda, relevant  reports and minutes laid out for  Alderman Gerry Dixon lay  unruffled in front of his empty  chair.  And regular business began.  A proclamation to declare  December I to 7 official Elves  Club Week in lieu of hard work  and the needy, was read,  followed by adoption of last  meeting's minutes.  A letter recommending  Hayden Killam and the Valentine Lands Corporation look to  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District to resolve their water re-  Yacht Club docks challenged again  by Stuart Burnside  "Procedure was clearly  violated in the first process,"  SCRD Director Gordon Wilson  told Bill Hunsche at the  November 22 meeting of the  SCRD.  Hunsche, a Garden Bay resident, appeared at the meeting to  enlist the SCRD's aid in halting  the approval of a foreshore  lease by the Seattle Yacht Club  (SYC), an organization of  boating enthusiasts who use  Garden Bay as a harbour for  two months of the year.  Wilson's assertions of procedural violation was in  reference to events which occurred in May of this year when,  according to Hunsche, the SYC  made expansions to its existing  docks in Garden eBay by some  30 per cent based upon an application to do so that was never  approved in writing by the .Land  Management Branch.  Hunsche, acting on behalf of  Graham Lewis, who owns the  neighbouring waterfront to the  south of the yacht club, said,  that while the club was ordered  to remove its new floats,  (something the club did comply  with), they were also to move  their main dock toward the  north a distance of 30 to 35 feet,  something they have yet to do.  The 30 to 35 feet in question,  says Hunsche, means the SYC's  main dock is on Lewis' property  and its presence makes access to  Lewis' own floats "awkward  and   possibly  dangerous."  Hunsche went on to say that he  felt he had exhausted all other  avenues of action, from the  Coast Guard to the Ministry of  Crown Lands, and was now  asking the SCRD for help in  stopping the SYC's application  process until they comply with  previous government dictates.  The deadline for objections  to the application, according to  Garden Bay resident Edith Daly, also at the meeting, is  December 7 and when the  SCRD was asked what could be  quests was moved to forward to  the necessary parties involved.  The Planning Committee  meeting of November 13 had no  report or results or recommendations due to the fact it didn't  take place, council choosing instead to leave planning to the  newly elected who take the reins  on December 3.  The West Howe Sound Fire  Protection Committee meeting  of November 5, dealt with a bylaw of which there was no  discussion, extraneous listing of  chapters or sections, pursuant  to's or subsections.  The Sunshine Coast Maritime  Society report read by Town  Administrator Lorraine .Goddard mentioned a four-by-four  foot wall, a trench was excavated, a considerable amount  of water was found, the drain  and backflll left as is.  No motion or recommendation. No motion to carry.  Alderman Lilian Kunstler  read a letter from and about the  Provincial Emergency Program  noting "there must be an area  co-ordinator  in  place."  She  done before that date, Gordon  Wilson said a letter of objection  would be drafted the following  day  When the district members  were asked by Hunsche what, if  anything, could be done by the  SCRD to bring and keep the  SYC into compliance, he was  told by Director Jim Gurney,  that while the area in question  was in fact crown land, it was  possible to have it rezoned and  brought under SCRD jurisdiction.  went on to mention a move  towards allowing Elphinstone  students to be allowed to exhibit  their artwork in council  chambers.  Strom, though in favour,  suggests council leave it to the  incoming new members  Kunstler drew a small round  of applause for her farewell as  she said "Thanks for involve  ment. I know 1 will still be involved for the young people and  others in Gibsons."  Strom followed a few minutes later with "thanks ta the.  aldermrm, staff and especial!;  the citizens of ��� jibsons. I'm sure,  we'll all be around...it's been'a,  wonderful eight years."  To note, only a few steps out  side the realm of calm proceedings took place.  Strom introduced the newly-  elects, all of whom were present.  Alderman John Reynolds cut  short Planner Rob Buchan during his report where Buchan was  attempting to refute claims  made by Maritime Historical  Society member Joe Belanger in  his letters to local newspapers  the previous week.  Reynolds later said, to tie up  some loose ends, "I would like  to deal with a point which has  bothered me over the last two  years," and went on to implement a motion to have the  health unit pay $3.95 a square  foot for their space.  Kunstler noted the next council may have a differing point of  view and led the two to one  defeat with ally Ken Collins.  With passage of some regular  by-laws, to which there was no  argument, and the consensus  that no more meetings would  take place before the passing of  the town key, council adjourned.

A good deal has been accomplished. Among many accomplishments, probably the  single most noteworthy, has  been the establishment of  government on a proper business basis, that has been  fastidiously fiscally responsible."  At about this point, Meredith  appeared to be speaking largely  improvisationaily. His theme  was the importance of maintaining the District's staff in a  way and at a level at which they  (deserved) to be accustomed.  The mayor was quite choked-up  as he reminded his listeners that  "Our (staffing level) amounts to  about one-third of what other  municipalities maintain!" At  this point Meredith appeared to  look dire<ctly at Mayor-elect  MacLarty, as if to make the  point that long before and during   her   campaign   she   has  declared   her   intention   to'  streamline Gty Hall���if elected.  Meredith closed his remarks  with an appreciative nod in the  direction of the Council with  which he had engaged in civic  combat on many occasions.  "I am proud of the Council's '  accomplishments and take this  opportunity to thank each  member for the cooperation  and understanding I have  received. This is not to say we  haven't had differences - and we  have - and many... This is, and  has ban, healthy... Generally  we have reached consensus  without too much difficulty... I  .am most grateful for the loyalty  and support of all members of  staff. It has been a pleasure  working with them."  Then Mayor Tom Meredith  posed for the camera with his  Council at the Coast News' request, and took his colleagues in  camera one last time.

Everyone is welcome,  including the inexperienced.  Call Sherry at 883-2548 for  more information.

Continued from page 1  organizer, Lola Westell, said  they had phoned their own  lawyer, Bob Bauman, who  specializes in the Municipal Act  of BC, and who advised them  there were provisions in place  which could bring the work being done to a standstill. Bauman  then advised the Town of Gibsons lawyers which provisions  might be applied.  Response by Town of Gibsons Administrators and Mayor  Diane Strom as to exactly how  the town came to be advised by  their lawyers (of the MacKenzie  Murdy law firm) are somewhat  conflicting, but Buchan points  out there was either a verbal or  written correspondence between  Bauman and the town's lawyers  which sped up procedures  leading to his serving of a Cease  and Desist Letter of Notice  from his office to the contractor  which brought a halt to the  drilling.  Forty-eight of the 60 holes  had been drilled but, it wasn't  the notice which stopped the  holes at that number. Sue Sleep  and her three year old son, Col-  wyn, sat themselves down too  close to the drill for Fowler to  continue safely and Mrs. Sleep  refused to move.  "I hope to hell Rob Buchan  can do something to stop them  legally," she said, adding that  "Killam thinks the rules tire  there to be bent. I've never done  anything radical for anything in  my life, but I think this is worth  fighting for. I watched them  chip away at North Wales and I  don't want to see that here."  When Fowler walked away  asking if "someone would talk  some sense into her," Sleep  turned to son Colwyn and said  "See, they shut it off. I told you  they would. They're not  stupid."  Dr. Ed Steeves, on the scene  with fellow alderman-elect,  Walter Bradshaw, attempted to  talk with Mrs. Sleep, but she  refused to move until Buchan  had returned to the rock from  his office.  Alderman Lilian Kunstler,  concerned with the amount of  time it was taking to procure a  notice to stop "this Machiavellian scheme," returned to  city hall and some 20 minutes  later returned to where  Katherine McManus and others  awaited Buchan's arrival.  Also on hand were BC Fish  and Wildlife Conservation Off-  ficer Doug Pierce and nature  photographer Sean Vanstrepen,  who were both anxious about  the disturbance the drilling and  possible blasting might cause  the eagles nesting out of Eagle  Ttte. The birds were keeping  their distance and occasionally  flying about erratically prompting Vanstrepen to comment on  Mieerinthe  holidays.  Send the FTD��  Holiday Cheer"  Bouquet.

Another concern^ citizen on  the scene, Tim Turner, said "I  just wish there was the political  will to show this guy times have  changed...this guy (Killam) is  old guard to show the insen-  sitivity he's shown towards  development in this  community."  But what everyone present  was most caught up in was the  guessing game revolving around  Killam's motives for undertaking the blasting of Gospel Rock,  Two days later the Coast  News finally reached the  developer.  Killam said "I think at this  particular time I am not going  to comment," and would not  talk to the press about it. He did  mention "I will just let them  wonder about my motives" and  said he was off to Africa until  the end of January.  "I am not going to get involved at this stage and I'm not going to do anything until I get  back."  Prior to this conversation,  however, the Coast News had  occasion to discuss Mr. Killam's  possible reasons for wanting to  blast Gospel Rock, with his  lawyer, Michael Welsh.  "Basically Mr. Killam intended to improve the view," said  Mr. Welsh, adding that "He  also wanted to (level) the area to  make it easier for the handicapped..."  Welsh further indicated that  Mr. Killam, if and when his  zoning problems were resolved  in his favour, would be blasting  Gospel Rock for homesite purposes, so it made sense to do the  job now.  Welsh's letter of November  23, states: "We are still review  ing the matter of whether the  Official Community Plan does  validly designate the above property in whole or in part as a  development area. Assuming  for argument's sake that it does,  we still fail to see that you have  any right to demand a development permit for the blasting  work our client was undertaking  on Tuesday last.  "...Alteration of land at  Gospel Rock is not within the  purview of (the town's notice)  sections. We therefore take the  position that your "stop work"  directive was made without  lawful authority.  "We understand that your  planner only issued this directive on the order of your administrator, acting on advice of  your solicitors, as the planner  did not himself believe a  development permit was required. Our client advises that  Mr. Buchan had in earlier conversations indicated that a  blasting permit might be  necessary. In fact, no permit is  required so long as properly  licensed blasters are utilized, as  was done."  Determining Killam's motivation was the key reason  Buchan says he delayed serving  the notice, but pointed out that  Friends of Gospel Rock  (FOGR) lawyers were helpful in  expediting legal procedures.  "I think we (the town and  FOGR) were on the same course  and it was just a matter of g^j confta^L  proaching it from different  angles. My whole day from  eight to two was in putting out  this fire." He said he left several  messages and would have liked  to talk to Killam but he couldn't  be found.  At the Town Council meeting  Tuesday evening Buchan showed Killam's lawyers the section  under the Municipal Act under  which the notice was served. He  also thanked the concerned  citizens and members of the  community who had helped  during the morning's crisis.  Buchan notes that, a while  back, when the 18.S acre park  was in mind, a parking lot with  a pathway to the rock had been  considered and the idea of having wheelchair access on a level  Gospel Rock may have been put  in place.  "Had (the blasting) been for  that purpose perhaps it might  have gone to council. Perhaps it  might have ebeen approved. I  don't know. That's why my efforts were to talk to Killam to  find out what he was doing and  why."  Diane Strom said any variance would certainly have to  come before council but "I  can't imagine this council would  give him a permit to blast."  Meanwhile Catherine  McManus, president of FOGR,  claims her organization was instrumental in getting the town  to take action legally.  She feels that if not for  FOGR paying their lawyer to  advise town lawyers to seek a  notice under provisions in the  Municipal Act, "Gospel Rock  would be blown up.  "It was a serious situation  that had to be dealt with immediately," she notes, but insists the town did not give any  indication there was going to be  anything done and that her  organization, while absorbing  the costs incurred to them,  shouldn't be in a position where  they have to watchdog the  development area of Gospel  Rock.  Buchan, called hero on one  hand when serving the notice,  and accused later of being part  of an administration sitting on  its hands over the issue, rebutts  by saying "I was not asleep at  the wheel and most definitely  not sitting on my hands. I don't  want to be viewed as an enemy  of Gospel Rock because that  certainly is not my role."  As of Friday, 47 of the 48  holes drilled had been filled in  by "a person or persons I do  not know or know of," Buchan  to all who supported me  in the recent election for  Area 'E' Director  JIM GURNEY  KIDS  Trail Bay Mall.

Coast News, November 26,1990  Manual brushing  by Marv Volen  The subject of "manual  brushing" in local papers has  caught my eye since I personally, have likely done more of that  kind of work than anyone in  British Columbia.  It might be useful to give you  a little background in the telling  of my story. I don't want to get  the backs up of the environmentalists nor the multinational corporations, but I do believe I can  back up my thwry on reforestation and brush control.  My first adult job was in 1928  when at 12 years old I was a  straw-monkey on a steam  threshing outfit in Saskatchewan. That job consisted of  being responsible for and driving a team of horses and wagon  to supply straw for the steam  engine's fuel.  For the next eight years, I ex-  perienced the drought, dust  storms, depression, army  worms, grasshoppers, jack rabbits, potato bugs, you name it.  To make up for some of that  I came to beautiful British Columbia where my first job took  me to the mile-high town of  Pioneer (a gold mine). There I  was sent down a one mile deep  hole in the rock called a shaft.  After a couple of years at  Pioneer the company sent me to  the west of Vancouver Island,  an isolated gold prospect, mainly because I had an industrial  first aid certificate.  At that camp I had my first  look at a rainforest tree. It was  a yellow cedar, six feet in  diameter at the undercut, and  80 feet to the first limb where  the diameter was still five feet.  This tree became camp  firewood.  An oldtimer remembers  how it was done  Subsequently, I was aboard  the Lady Rose in mid-  November, 1939, in the evening, arriving at the Gibsons  dock.  I wondered what this town  had in store for me. There was  one light visible and that was a  coal oil lantern on the dock.  Little did I know that my first  logging experience would be at  the head of the Bay Cater the  Gibsons Marina) chopping  down alder trees with an axe,  cutting them into 10 and 12 foot  lengths, dragging them with  horses onto the beach, placing  them on dog liner and off to  Hammond Furniture in Vancouver.  I should now introduce you  to some of the early pioneer loggers that influenced my life.  They were the Chamberlin  brothers, Clare, Clarde and  Clay. The ones that influenced  my work were Clarde's sons,  Raymond and Les. Clare's son  was Cecil.  The other pioneer Gibsons  family which influenced my life  was John and Myrtle Hicks and  their daughter Peggy, whom I  married in 1946.  I have often thought how  much better our democracy  would be if, for example, when  choosing a Minister of Forests  we could be practical, forget  politics and choose a very  knowledgeable, practical  gentleman by the name of Les  Chamberlin. At least they did  let him serve Sechelt Forest  District.  My brushing experience  began with my first contract  with BC Tel, while a member of  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department.  Fred Feeny at BC Tel asked  me why I didn't try to get a tree  trimming contract.  I looked at a local line and  gave Fred a price. The North  Vancouver representative came  to meet me. He told me my  price was pretty low and that  they usually pay two or three  times that much, and askesd me  if it was enough. I assured him I  would complete the job.  From then on, for many  years, 1 did all their clearing  from Port Mellon to Pender  Harbour, Keats, Gambier and  some in Powell River.  The telephone lines were, in  many areas, close to the ground  so our crew pulled small saplings out by the root, by the tens  of thousands. It was faster, and  more effective than using the  chain .saw or curved pruning  saw.  For BC Tel we had to be sure  the bottom of the line was  clear���that also helped their  'bottom line'.  Where the saplings were too  large to pull out we made sure  to cut them as close to the  ground as possible (ie., one  inch) and they would seldom  sprout new shoots; but in cases  of larger stumps, a minute  amount of brush killer could be  applied to the individual stump.  Some of the other big  mistakes they make in replanting is waiting a year to replant.  In some areas I know they  have waitrf more than a year  and this gives the competitive  brush and weeds too much of a  head start.  The logger is the one that  should be required to plan and  execute the harvest and the  replanting. Furthermore, forest  land, whether small or large,  private or public, should be  replanted, and we, the people,  should .accept environmental  responsibility���whether it's  flooding Native land in the  north for Alcan, which already  gets its power 25 times cheaper  than we do, or the cleanup of  Expo lands for a couple of examples.  Evct if we don't have much  respect for others, we should  cultivate self respect.  Christmas Fair  The Sunshine Coast Arts  Council's Annual Christmas  Craft Fair runs from 10 am to 4  pm on Saturday, Da-ember 1 at  the Sechelt Indian Band Hall.  This has become a traditional  one-stop shopping place for  many Coasters in the market for  unique, one-of-a-kind items.  Many of the traditional ctafts  media are represented: quilting,  jewellery, pottery, along with  some especially Christmassy  items such as Christmas  crackers (handmade, of course),  wild flower wreaths, beeswax  candles, ornaments and decorations.  Some craftsixople at the fair  have not shown h.ere before and  are selling such things as rustic  twig furniture, handblown glass  and teddy bewrs. Two woodworkers will be showing hand-  turned bowls and wooden boxets  and the Arts Council's Gourmet  Bake Booth (where many stock  up on homemade holiday goodies) will be joined by Gifts From  The Garden, a project of the  Arts Council Garden Committee.  l ._*__   e05-3713j  j Cawla St., Sachalt  '��� Opan Tubs. ��� Sat. 10 - 5  SWIVEL RECLINER  Your choice of colours  REG. <599"  t^_^^^  $29900    .vl '"*��� "i\y  u   ti. \ *���' ;-_f -w ���'*  . many other   ^���E      t. ^     *|      ���     _  NOW  Also, many  styles available  Special order wilh  f additional cost.  /^DEPENDABLE"  AUIO SERVICE  DID VOU KNOW...

The Sunshine  Second Section  Halfmoon Bay taxidermist Dave Marchand concentrates on his  art. ���In MkkMtSktnMu photo  Mandrax awarded  storage contract  by Stuart Burnside  The firm of Mandrax Enterprises Ltd, of Kelowna, BC,  was awarded a $290,000 contract by the SCRD November  22, for the construction of a  new 500,000 gallon water  storage unit.  The new tank, made of  bolted steel and concrete, would  replace the water storage unit  currently supplying Area E, a  wooden reservoir capable of  holding 50,000 gallons of water.  According to SCRD Director  Jeremy Frith, the new tank  would improve water pressure  to houses below it, although  water would still have to be  put.iped to those above, and  would provide a much needed  surplus of water in the event of  drought or fire.  Director Jim Gurney said the  price of the new tank was so  good that the engine��ering firm  of Dayton & Knight, who did  the initial estimates for the  reservoir, should be consulted  regarding the feasibility of a second 500,000 gallon tank, bringing capacity to  1,000,000  Director Frith said that while  at the present time the Town of  Gibsons won't have access to  the water, he is hopeful that the  Gibsons Town Council and the  SCRD can work together in the  creation of a single water  district board that would make  water available to all at a fair  price.  . Gibsons recently spent approximately $12,000 drilling a  well that remains dry.  Stuffing them with style  Taxidermist lives and breathes his art  by Jan Michael Sherman  Tell Dave Marchand to  "Stuff it!" and you'd better be  prepared to pay a good price for  your request.  The 30 year-old native of  Southern Ontario, raised outside of Windsor, is a former  child care worker with a  diploma from Mount Royal  College in Calgary.  But a few years ago, weary of  the politics and wary of Incipient burnout, the quiet-spoken  Marchand cast about for  something to do which was  more compatible with his needs  and his nature.  "Taxidermy has always  fascinated me���it is truly  something I can honestly say I  always wanted to do", Marchand said. He was relaxing in  an overstuffed chair in the tiny,  but cozy, workshop office he  rents in what appears to be a  converted barn on Mintie Road  overlooking Halfmoon Bay.  "The Marchands have been  hunters for a long time", the  Sunshine Coast's only licensed  taxidermist noted, explaining  where his interest in the art  ("It's not a craft���it's considered an art form")  originated. Marchand respectfully set a stuffed owl on the  bench, a piece done by someone  else but brought to him for  repairs by its present owner.  "My dad took me on my first  moose hunt when I was 16, but  I got my first rabbit at about  12." Dave smiled a bit wistfully:  "I got it with a bow and arrow.  The arrow was home-made. 1  used a point from a compass as  the tip."  After working for close to six  years in Calgary with emotionally abused (and substance  abusing) teens, some of whom  still keep in touch with their  former counselor, Marchand  decided to take taxidermy  courses as a hobby.  "I studied with a man in  Calgary named Jim Penn. He's  retired now���sold his business  for a million dollars���but he's a  fifth-generation taxidermist."  Marchand paused momentarily,  eyeing an entirely lifelike coyote  which appeared to be eyeing  him back.  "Jim Penn was considered  one of the best taxidermists in  the world. Once he was commissioned to fly over to India to  mount an elephant!" Marchand  smiled appreciatively, as if he'd  jump the next ferry should some  similar opportunity cross his  path.  "They had to use a crane to  lift the hide", said Marchand,  adding that "The body was  made of hand-carved balsa  wood."  This remark brought Dave to  the subject of authenticity and  realism in his art.  "In the 'old days'���up to  about 30 years ago���materials  and techniques were radically  different. Then the use of  styrofoam for bodies came in,  along with other so-called 'high  tech' stuff like fleshing  machinery and more realistic  prosthetics.  "Faster work and more  realistic specimens is what the  taxidermists were after", Marchand noted. "People doing the  work had arrived at a point  where the> couldn't afford to  practise the art for the fees  clients were willing to pay. Taxidermists had slowly pricesd  themselves out of business, so  things had to change."  Marchand went on to explain  that he could mount, say, a  coyote's head for $400 using the  more modem approaches and  techniques. But should a  natural wildlife museum request  the same thing it would carry a  $7000 fee.  "They want strict authenticity as well as realism. I would be  using the animal's skull, teeth,  tongue, bones, et cetera", Marchand said, "And this entails a  highly  labour-intensive   ap  proach. I enjoy working this  way���using the old taxidermist  ways���but the cost is prohibitive for just about any client  except an institution."  A good taxidermist, once  established, should be able to  earn between $50,000 and  $70,000 a year. "There's between 20 and 30 taxidermists  operating in Calgary", Marchand said, "And most who've  been in business for, say, five  years, are booked solid for two.  Bring them something to mount  and you can expect to wait close  to two years to get it back."  Marchand's plan is to  establish himself on the Sunshine Coast, then offer courses  in taxidermy to private students.  He would also sell the various  exotic taxidermic supplies to  those who studied under him.  Taxidermists must be licensed  by the Fish and Wildlife Department, and stand to have their  license lifted should they work  on certain animals, or animals  who have been illegally killed.  "If anyone brings me  songbirds, birds of prey, or certain sea birds, I have to refuse  to work on them���unless the  person has a permit to mount  from Fish & Wildlife. If someone came in with, say, a  hawk he'd shot���I'd report that  person."  Please turn to page' 21  ^.footprints  TRAIL BAY MAIL  SECHELT 16.

In general appearance it resembles many  other small logging/fishing  communities along the West  Coast. The town boasts most of  the usual amenities, including a  pub.  There is a legend (not included in the travel brochures) concerning Charlotte City's first  pub. It opened for business  shortly after World War II. The  Woods were booming in those  days���the loggers feisty, thirsty  and bushed. At the beginning of  a holiday weekend, they converged on the brand new beer  parlour from several surrounding camps. Things got pretty  lively. When closing time was  announced, the rowdy brush-  apes would have none of it.  They ejected the manager and  the waiters and proceeded to  drink the place dry. The party  went on for several days. It is  not reported whether any  charges were ever laid but the  owner closed up shop then and  there. It was years before  anyone had the nerve to open a  beer parlour in the town again.  Just prior to our visit,  Charlotte City was subjected to  something quite out of keeping  with the average outsider's picture of the rainy Island climate-  a drought. The village has an erratic water system and is largely  dependent on wells and small  creeks. Extremely dry weather  in September depleted these  sources and local residents had  to rely on a water truck running  back and forth from Tarundyl  Creek, several miles away. Recent heavy rains have alleviated  the situation for the moment.  To explore Graham Island,  you follow the Yellowhead  Highway, a good blacktop  road. It turns north at the  Haida village of Skidegate and  hugs the shoreline. The tide is  up on this particular day and  the weather momentarily clement. A jury of cormorants  crowds a wave-washed rock.  Several miles up the highway,  we stop at St. Mary's Spring, a  famous local landmark but easy  to miss unless you keep your  eyes open. It lies above the  highway, watched over by the  wooden statue of a nun-like  figure. We sample the pure  achingly-cold water, fully aware  of the local belief that all who  Channel 11  do so are fated to return to the  Charlottes.  Just past the Spring lies the  small community of T'lell, scattered randomly along the upper  side of the highway. The settlement was founded in I904 by a  legendary pioneer named Mexican Tom. At first glance it  seems to consist of a post-office  and little else, but there is more  to the place than a casual glance  would suggest. It incorporates  three successful working ranches, a couple of lodges and  several small businesses including, rather incongruously,  an electronics shop.  T'lell is also home to the  Island's weekly newspaper, The  Queen Charlottes Observe, a  lively little journal, founded in  I969 and printed in an easy-to-  read magazine-size format.  Edited by local writer, Jeff  King, it is a cheerful, well-  produced publication, full of  local news and gossip. Earlier,  we interviewed Paul Semetz,  reporter-at-large for the  Observetr.  Semetz, an interesting well-  informed young guy, makes his  home in Charlotte City. He is a  relative newcomer to the Islands  but the nature of his job has  given him a very solid handle on  local affairs.  I was surprised to learn that  the Charlottes have no independent governing body but are ad  ministrated from Prince Rupert  as part of the Skeena  District���a fact that rankles  many Islanders.  We discuss the recent  drought. Semetz tells us that a  dowser was brought in and he  has apparently located a large  water pocket about 175 feet  Mow the surface. We also  touch on the Islands' literary  legacy. (Poets Susan Musgrave,  Sean Virgo and J. Michael  Yates all lived and wrote here in  the back-to-the-land days of the  Seventies-)   To be continued...  AEGINA  Photo Gallery  TUESDAY.

Players sparkle In "Living Together"  David Short highsteps a funny walk as Tim Anderson takes a curtain call for the Driftwood Players'  presentation of Alan Ayckbourn's 'Living Together' at the Women's Institute Hall from November  22 through December 1. -Joed Johnstone photo  by George Cooper  Living Together, the Driftwood Players fall presentation,  opened last Thursday to a nearly full house. The audience  responded in joyful laughter to  the hilarious Ayckboum comedy. And the performance was  a crisp interpretation of the  characters the playwright  presents in caricature.  The play burst into life in the  second scene after a seeming  ponderous beginning. There the  rollicking mayhem of this  'friendly' family gathering set  responsive laughter rippling  throughout the remainder of the  play-  Norman, the scamp, the  scapegrace, the rip, was ably  playd by Tim Anderson. Norman's aim in life is the conquest  of the ladies, and by play's end  he has unheroically done just  that. Even his own wife falls a  victim.  Reg, the patient foil to his  wife's withering remarks is  played with quiet assurance by  David Short. Short provides a  hilarious tidbit, a 'worm's turn'  response to his wife's criticisms.  Annie, smoldering in frustration, is winsomely played by  Dianne Evans. David Fraser's  Tom is a suitably naive and  stupid husband.  Neest Lewis' portrayal of the  remote and self-centred wife is a  subtle interpretation of ironic  humour.  Whenever Colleen Elson was  on stage, the action noticeably  sparkled. She brought just the  right touch of venom to her  every utterance, gesture, turn of  head.  This is the first community  play in the Women's Institute  Hall now in the very beginning  stages of its restoration. President Fred Inglis can be  justifiably proud that a dream  now begins to take real form.  ^GIBSONS  *1legion  Branch 109  Andy's Restaurant- Lunch and dinner specials every day. Closed Mondays.

Coast News, November 26,1990  Play ball  Indoors  by Al Robertson   ~ ~  This is a request to all you  ball players that have nothing  better to do than be couch  potatoes on Tuesday nights.  Instead of sitting around watching TV there's the opportunity for stardom on the court at  Elphinstone High School.  There are no Dr. J's or Larry  Birds, just some of the local  lads battling it out. Sometimes  it's intense, sometimes it's sloppy, but it's fun and it's exercise.  However, there's a problem:  We need more players; full  court, five a side, for two hours  is pretty demanding on the  bunch of us.  So if you're interested, it's  every Tuesday, 8 pm to 10 pm  at Elphinstone High.  It costs S3 a session. Come  dressed to play.

It seems  like such a short time, and the  time is especially short when  everyone is having a good time.  Everyone at the bonspiel seemed to be enjoying themselves  and we sure do like to see all  those outside rinks here; but we  don't like them to be so successful!  They took away all the first  prizes this year: First place in  the A event, first in the B event,  first in C and first in D. Coast  teams did very well after that, j  however, taking all the second  place finishes and taking our  share of the third and fourth  places.  Winner of the A event was  the Smith rink from Delta, skipped by Les Smith. They beat  out a very good tesam from our  club skipped by Roger  Hocknell.  Winner of the B event was  the Black rink from Cloverdale  who beat out the team of Ed  Hill from Gibsons.  In C event, another team  from Powell River won the  event again this year. The  Rankin team won out over  Larry Paradon team from the  Gibsons Winter Club. D event  was taken by the Deptuck team  who defeated the Robinson  team.  There are a lot of voluitt��ersI  to be thanked for their work lastl  weefcfend: The ladies who work-"  ed the kitchen and the bar, the  executive and bonspiel committee for thdr excellent organization, the crews who prepared  the ice, the phone committee  members. We want to thank  you all for the hard work and  energy you put in on behalf of  the club. It is through your efforts that the Winter Club has  been such a success for so many  years.  We would also like to thank  those businesses in the community which donated prizets  and trophies. Thanks to the  following sponsors: A event,  Molsons; B event, Cedars Pub;  C event, Swanson's Ready Mix;  D event, Coastal Tires. We sure  do appreciate your support and  your gracious giving over the  years. Without your support,  we would not be able to keep  giving such wonderful prizw to  all the event winners.  A special thank you is again  extended to the Elphinstone  Grads for their help in driving  the curlers home. That is the second year of offering this fine  service and it made such an impression on some of the outside  teams that they are going to go  home and suggest a similar program for some of their own  communities. You are indeed a  fine group and the community  should be proud of you.  Well done. It shows what can  be d<one by a great little comity. It was a great 'spiel and  nnot wait for the next one in  nuary.

The Cedar's sponsored team  played seven garnets in six days  during their week long stay.  Twenty-six teams, from all over  North America, competed in  the tournament.  Pigs become bacon  by Mark  A mixed slow-pitch softball  team comprised of players from  the Cedar's Pub League won a  silver medal in a tournament in  San Jose Delcabo, Mexico.  The team included Jossee  Hovden, Kent Anderson, Grant  Gill, and Joey linger representing the Ball Blasters; Cathy  Grant, Joe Musgrove, and Dave  Patton from the Cedar's; John  Pritchard who plays for A & G  Contracting; Roger Hinks who  is with the Scummbies and Steve  It was a very competitive  tournament with five out of six  gam<es within one run! They  beat Edmonton 7-6 and Calgary  6-5. The game against Delta was  a 5-5 draw and they lost 7-6 and  6-5 against two separate  Calgary teams.  In the thrilling final, the Gibsons area ball players lost a  heartbreaker 11-7 to San Jose,  California. All in all, quite a  respeectable showing for a bunch  of softball enthusiasts from the  Sunshine Coast.  Look out Mexico, November  1991, because there is a rumour  that a couple of other teams are  going to try their luck next year,  and they have hopes of bringing  back a gold medal!  Thai's right gang! The Pigs  are oh so dose to that elusive  'W.  After the last couple of weeks  of play it is truly evident these  fellos are getting the hang of it.  Persistans and patience, also a  lot of good humour, are showing through in the on field performance of the lads in blue.  Coming off a creaming by  the Meralomas side the week  before, the boys came to practise, ready to learn more (as  they did in the game).  They were looking forward to  the week ahead, as they would  be pitted against the youngsters  (mostly their same age) of UBC.  November 3, vs UBC To   Ah; once again overseas and  land out to the Endowment  Lands of higher learning and  knowledge. Could this be an  A-t- day for the Pigs? We'll  seel!  Midway through the game  Ray 'Keg' Dow went down and  Albetrt 'Albert' Bezaire was  happily dragged into replace  'Keg'. Unfortunately what was  to be a promising and hopefully  rewarding day, turned out like  the conditions; wet and slippery. The lads still gave it their  all, and were just short of the  try-line on a few occasions and  missed the scoreboard. UBC 20,  PigsO.  Not (lettered by this mishap,  practise that week was abundantly participated.  November 10, vs Trojans  Home Sweet Home!  Yahoo! The rains of  November are here! You've got  to know the happiness of a Pig  in rain. Crazy or not the match  goes on.  You betcha; up to the Coast  came the Trojans. Plenty of  bodies to spare and excitement  high. This truly was a day in the  __      19.  name of rugby.  As the opening whistle went  off, everyone was already soak-  ed, not to worry about those  monster puddles. We're the  PIGS!!!  While the game wore on,  these were exactly the bodies involved (the forwards).  Back and forth, to and fro,  slippin' and slidin' the game  went, when suddenly a first for  our home boys, penalty kick for  us, YA! We were on the board  first, Trojans 0, Pigs 3.

VON 1V0  Stuffing in style  Continued from page 15  Marchand also refuses to  mount pets���chiefly tats and  dogs���although he has done a  pet parrot, birds falling into a  different category psychologically for Marchand.  "Taxidermists do receive  some off-beat requests", Dave  noted. "Jim Penn once had this  old man show up at his shop  with a real old German  Shepherd on a leash. 'How  much to stuff my dog?', asks  the old man. Not wanting to do  it, but not wanting to hurt the  old man, Jim says '$2000'  thinking the fee will scare the  old guy off."  Marchand reached down to  stroke Duke, his six year old  hunter who'd been monitoring  the interview.  "Well, the next day the old  man showed up again���this  time with his shepherd's dead  body in the trunk of his car.  He'd had the dog put to sleep-  but just couldn't bear to part  with it.  "Jim wits quite astonished.  Still hoping to scare the old boy  off, he says 'I'll have to have 50  per cent down on the work'-and  the old guy calmly writes him a  check  for a thousand.  Jim  wound up mounting the dog on  a styrofoam wolf body."  Earlier, at he, his wife, and  son's temporary A-frame, Dave  had shown me part of his collection of Aboriginal artifacts, a  number of which he had  discovered personally. But his  most incredible And was not a  flint arrowhead or digging tool.  "About two years ago my  brother Steve and I were winter  hunting only 15 miles from  downtown Calgary. We were  tracking through this frozen  bog and saw buffalo skulls and  bones sticking up through the  snow."      ,  The wonder of that moment  is still to be felt from Mar-  chand's tone. "We went back in  the spring and, sure enough, it  was exactly what we'd felt it  was���an ancient aboriginal buffalo hunting area. And it was  immense! About a quarter by a  half-mile in area.  "We reported it to the head  archaeologist for the Eastern  Alberta Slopes and when he  came to inspect the site, it absolutely blew his mind!  Couldn't believe it. Anyway,  eventually we received papers  from the government saying  that the site had been designated  'The Marchand Kill Site.' Kind  of neat to leave your mark in  Alberta, really a singular ex-  perience for me and .Steve."  Since Dave had some work to  do on a thawing, silted bear  carcass, my last question  centered on what would happen  should hunting ultimately be  banned, not a remote possibility  in an era where animal rights  are being championed more and  more successfully.  "Well, first of all it would  skyrocket the prkw of mounts  already in existence. It might  result in a deluge of work as  people hunted right up to the  ban and wanted their trophies  mounted. Taxidermists would  then have to subsist on 'roadside kills'..."  For a moment there was only  the gentle, rhythmic sound of  Duke breathing.  "Eventually", said up-and-  coming taxidermist Dave Marchand quietly, "Eventually the  art would wither away and  die."  But since he doesn't expect  hunting to be banned any time  soon, Dave headed for his  bench and prepared to get on  with his new life on the Coast.  Oink! Oink! Pigs become bacon  Continued from page 19  period, this club is showing major signs of turning the tide.  Midway through the half  there was a tremendous goal-  line stand; time and again the  Trojans banged away at the  line, but ferocious and  tenacious tackling held off a  score. Pressure was released  finally with a boot to touch.  Great effort boys!!  The Trojans' attack mounted  yet another time, relief looked  evident once more, but Mother  Nature intervened. Winning the  ball from the loose play on the  five yard, there was then an attempted out to the backs, the  ball dropped sadly into a swamp  and died. The Trojan flyhalf  coming across scopped up the  pill and over for four points.  Conversion good. Trojans 12,  Pigs 3. Rats, close but no cigar.  Fine effort by all!!  November 17, vs Chilliwack  Coming South on their naval  assault craft, the Chilliwack  RFC made an inter-league visit  this weekend. The weather turned out to be splendiforous, unfortunately the boys in blue  were not. What thoughts were  in the minds of our lads, who  knows?  With hopes of putting that  elusive 'W* on the board; into  the match we gamely went. Size  did not seem to be a factor in  the contest, but spirit played the  major role. Flat as pancakes  were the Pigs and charged as a  rocket were the opposition.  Chilliwack 20, Pigs 4.  Future events: Inter-squad  game November 24; EXB-Lions  at home, December 1.

Editor  Watching television with my  children I was very disturbed by  the number of commerrcials  which flog war toys.  "War toys are all playthings  which .are used to solve conflict,  gain power, or win through  violence, and which aim to  wound or kill". (Swedish Play  Council).  These toys teach children to  accept a militarized world that  praises and awards violence and  pretends that pwple don't suffer in a war. This Christmas  there will be hungry children in  war torn countries all over the  world.  As a parent, remember that  peacemaking begins at home.  "Real" toys help children to  learn new things like riding a  bike or playing on the computer. "Real" toys help  children to play together by  Killam chided  EdHor'i Note: A copy of the  following   was   received   for  An  open  later  to   Hayden  Killam  As a member of this community I find your ongoing and  most recent antics (ie., drilling  on Gospel Rock) both childish  and inappropriate. It is unfortunate that our community  must continue to indulge,  through unfavourable press, an  overindulgent personality. Your  utter disregard for the relationship many people on the Sunshine Coast have developed  with the promontory at Gospel  Rock, is clear evidence of the  boyish arrogance that you  mysteriously And refuge in.  Nobody is questioning the  ownership and status of Gospel  Rock���only the civility, motives  and compassion of its owner.  Grow up Hayden. This  decade has ushered in a new  resolve for community-based  decision making and, like it or  not, you are a member of the  community. Shouldn't you  think about acting like one?

Q: I'm thinking of buying a new car in 1991.  How wiU the proposed GST affect prices?  A: The outgoing Federal Sales Tax (FST) is  now part of the price of new cars. So, while  they will be fully taxed at 7% in 1991,  the expected effect of replacing the FST  with the GST on the average $22,000  mid'size car is a reduction of around $850.  Q: My son has figured out it wiU cost $500 in  lumber to build a dock at our cottage if he  bought it now. How much will that lumber  cost with the proposed GST?  A: You can expect to pay about $512 for  that same amount of lumber for personal  use based solely on the changeover from  the FST to the GST.  Q: I know the proposed GST won't apply to city  bus fares but I take the commuter train to work.  WiU I have to pay GST?  A: No. Daily commuter trains are considered  a municipal transit service, so fores are  exempt from GST.  We're here to answer your questions about how the  GST will affect prices.

For a small community, each  new semi-annual concert  features new faces and new  talents along with the older  standbys. This year featured for  the first time were Mishka  Vavrik, Flor Stegeman,  Maureen Corbin, Margaret  Humm and Brian Arbisson.  Other individual artists peer-  forming included Walter James,  Alice Horsman, Kevin Onclin,  Arline Collins, George Cavalier,  Kevin Cohen, Ronnie Dunn,  Floyd Carmen and Nikki Weber  herself.  Coupled with the group  presentations by the 69ers, The  Barbery Coasters, the Semi-  Tones and Point Blank and the  Rolling Tones, a most impressive and enjoyable musical  evening resulted.  Proceeds of the concert were  a benefit for the new Branch 69  activity centre which is in the  process of re-planning on a  reduced scale for the Trail  Avenue property.  The performance will be  repeated in Gibsons on November 23, with proceeds allocated  to the Gibsons Branch of St.  Mary's Hospital Auxiliary who  have handled ticket sales for the  event.  Larry Grafton  Gibsons questions  Editor:  Is there something wrong in  the state of Gibsons?  How did it happen that officials representing the Town of  Gibsons did nothing to stop it  for three hours while a blasting  crew worked to demolish  Gospel Rock?  Why was it left to citizens to  get a lawyer from Vancouver  before the legal stop work order  was considered and how come it  took staff another two hours  before that stop work order was  delivered on site?  With the lower lookout at  Gospel Rock under a death  sentence, timing was emy-  tiling!  L.J.

Coast News, November 26,1990  One coastal dispatcher  High tech for firemen  by Rm Nichohoe  A new high tech communications system that would allow  calls to all the voluntwr Tire  departments on the Coast to be  handled through one dispatcher  was considered by Regional  District Directors at the  November 8 board meeting.  In a lengthy presentation, Jim  MacDonnell of Motorola de-  Guess Where  The usual prize of $5 will lie awarded to the first correct entry  drawn which locates the above. Send your entries to reach the  Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons by Saturday of this week. Last  week's winner was Lesley Stoochnoff of Roberts Creek who correctly identified the rock at the top of Marlene Road In Roberts  Creek.  McPhee retiree  Sechelt's man In charge of Emergency Preparedness, Art  McPhee, has announced Ids intention to retire as of  December 31,1990 after 15 yean with the towa.  The announcetnen t was made by Alderman Rotwrt Wlbon  daring the regular council meeting November 21. "Art did a  yeoman's Job," the alderman noted in a heart-felt tribute, going on to ask for a letter from Mayor Meredith on behalf of  the council citing McPhee's laudatory work over the years.  Alderman Michael Shanks added to this request one of his  own ��� that McPhee lie awarded with a plaque. Both tributes  were approved unanimously.  Beat evening  Ray Manzarek, seminal keyboardist for The Doors, aad  Beat Pod Michael McOnre, will appear ia concert together  at Vancouver's Commodore on Sunday, December 2,1990 at  la.  Billed aa "...a night of Beat poetry and dance", Manzarek  aad McChire will be presenting an eclectic fusion of poetry  and music similar to shows the two have given sporadically  ovw the part couple of yean.  Entitled "Scratching the Beat Surface", the evening will  also feature the Crazy Fingers Band and the musical juggling  antics of (downs) Txi Whizz and Ross .Barrett.  scribed the advantages of such a  system for directors and  volunteer firemen from all the  fire districts.  The system would integrate  the regular telephone system  with a radio communication  network which would allow  contact via pagers between  firemen and the dispatcher, and  between firemen in different  districts. To do this, MacDonnell recommends that all fire  departments switch to frequency 710 presently used by  Roberts Creek, Halfmoon Bay  and Pender Harbour.  Another feature of the system  would be the logging of all calls,  which would be an advantage in  tracing calls and a help in any  subsequent legal investigative  procedures.  When asked what would happen if there was a power failure  or the phone lines were knocked  out, MacDonnell said that he  would recommend a backup  power source which would  automatically convert the whole  system to a radio operated  mode and keep the communication intact.  MacDonnell estimates that  the bottom line cost of the  system (not including a source  of backup power) would be  $134,000. Directors referred the  matter to the finance committee  for further consideration.  sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssa  \Jhank  to all who supported  me in the election  for Alderman  ��� Town of Gibsons  Walter Bradshaw  t%%0&  DECEMBER  ORGANIZATIONAL MEETING  Wed., Nov. 28, 7:30 - Burke Block  VOLLEYBALL - Tuesdays al Gibsons Elementary Irom  6:30 ��� 8:30 'til Dec. 11  TEEN DROP IN - From 7-11 In the Marine Room  (below tbe library)  Dec.  1 ��� Videos  Dw.
