Array C. V8V ,x<  The Sunshine  ��8.8  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25'per copy on news stands     August 8,1988       Volume 42       Issue 32  The Magrath sisters, Meg (Fran Burnside, left), Lenny (Arline Collins, centre), and Babe (Christabel Watson), celebrate Lenny's 30th  birthday in the Driftwood Players' production of Crimes of the  Heart. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play was the first of this year's  Summer Play Parade lineup (see review page 13).   ��� Vern Etlloti photo  Gibsons Council thinks twice  Development debate is shelved  All eyes were on Rob Buchan  on Wednesday, as he read this  prepared statement in Gibsons  Council chambers:  "1 have presented a recommendation to you as approving  officer which to dare, you have  nol seen fit (o adopt. Vou have  before you a motion which is  nol only inappropriate, but illegal."  The motion in question,  made last week by Alderman  Lilian Kunstler al Gibsons  Committee of Ihe Whole  meeting, was to accepl a road  system for Ihe planned 'Ocean-  mount' subdivision as originally  drawn by developer John  Kavanagh.  Buchan said Ihe motion is illegal because 'acceplance implies, al the very least,  approval'. He has not fully supported the plan, and said, "It's  not within council's prerogative  to approve a subdivision, nor to  direct its approving officer to  \  approve a subdivision."  Buchan, who lold the Coasl  News he thought Ihe mistake  was made inadvertently, drafted  his statement after speaking lasl  week with municipal solicitor  Chris Murty. "He confirmed  whal I was already aware of,"  Buchan lold the Coast News.  Al Gibsons Council's July 12  Commitlee of the Whole  meeting, Buchan recommended  thai a right of way to Stewart  Road be maintained as a future  alternate route to upper Gibsons. This is in direct conflict  wilh ihe developer's plan to  eliminale the Stewart Road extension. The planner and the  developer also disagreed on the  shape of a connecting road.  Buchan also felt thai the  Oceanmount plan would result  in an alliance between the  Oceaiimounl properly and an  adjoining lot that would  devalue Ihe property of Gibsons  resident, Mr. Zueff.  "The approving officer must  be given assurance thai Mr.  Zueff will not be adversely affected by Ihe applicant proposal," said Buchan. "If Ihis  assurance is not forthcoming,  then Ihe recommendations of  the officer's report of July 12  must stand."  Mayor Strom said she  understood that 'an agreement  has been reached between the  developer and Mr. Zueff and  lhat Ihe property owner had not  contacted Buchan because he  thoughl ihe planner was on  holidays.  Buchan said the municipality  musl receive word that the properly owner either favours the  applicant's plan, or has reached  an agreement with the Ocean-  mount people, to 'clearly  remove from us any question  lhat we have misled the properly owner'.  Alderman John Reynolds  said, "It's nol my intention to  go against the planner, but to  take his advice on iwo points,  and lake his advice on the third  and disagree wilh it. I recommend we leave (Slewarl Road)  oul of It, as it's a political decision."'  "1 don't think this is Ihe position to gel inlo a political argument with our planner," offered Alderman Norm Peterson.  Reynolds' new motion lo accepl two-thirds of Buchan's  recommendation (the Stewart  Road issue being excluded) died  on the floor, lacking any support from council members.  Council finally decided lo  shelve the entire debate unlil Ihe  implications of Reynolds' motion can be studied, on the  grounds lhal the procedure  should have been initialed in Ihe  beginning,  "I'm sorry lhat thai wasn't  done," said Mayor Strom.  Stricken children give  a lesson in living  By Bruce Grierson  Try as 1 might, I can't seem  to gel it. I can'l learn Ameslan,  (he inlernalional hand-sign  language for the deaf. But  15-ycar-old Sherry Heinrichs  won't lei me quit. She waits and  watches, nods encouragement  as I try lo form my fingers inlo  letters, my letters into words.  I'm stuck. She watches. I can'l  go on. Sherry leans toward me  over Ihe camp lable. Then with  a suddenly wizened face, she  cups a hand behind her car and  says, "speak up, sonny, I can'l  hear you!"  The girl has an unselllingly  keen sense of humor. She also  has Hystiocytosis X, a rare  form of cancer that has claimed  her hearing, but nol her enthusiasm for life.  Sherry is one of 78 kids at  Camp Goodtimes, an annual  camp held in Roberts Creek for  kids wilh a history of cancer.  From all parts of British Columbia and Alberta, ihey have  come to Camp Byng, io cook-  out and converse, do crafts,  sports, and just hang out enjoying each other's company.  This camp is one of eight  across the country sponsored by  the Canadian Cancer Society.  But in several respects, Camp  Goodtimes is unique. For one  thing, all its staff - from the kitchen help lo the junior  counsellors to the directors - are  volunleers. For another, it is the  only camp of its kind that  doesn't allow parents lo attend.  This policy, explains director  and Toronto grad student Donna McCallum, has grown from  the belief lhal even ihe best-  intcnlioned of parents may be  overproleclive of children with  cancer.  "The difference between  these and other kids," she says,  "is that because of their illness,  they've been coddled. Being  away from lhat for awhile helps  make the kids more independent, and bolsters their self-  esteem. Perhaps most refreshing about Camp Goodtimes,"  she says, "is that it offers  something invaluable lo cancer  patients: a chance to spend time  in a completely non-judgmenlal  milieu.  "The camp helps them escape  the stigma of being branded a  cancer patient," says McCallum. "They can open up  and talk in Ihis environment,  where they mighl not in a school  setting. These kids are very accepting of each other. No one  quesiions any other's  disability."  Especial aboul Camp Good-  limes is its body of dedicated  volunteers. On staff is a permanent doctor, (and two oncologists permanently on-call al  Vancouver Children's  Hospilal), ihree nurses, and 28  counsellors, for a leader lo  camper ralio of under three lo  one.  Fifteen-year-old Roxanne  Wiseman, a junior counsellor al  Camp Goodtimes, says all the  volunteers have in common 'a  lot of patience and tolerance'.  McCallum adds (hat maturity  and responsibility are typically  found in uncommon measure  among the staff, many of whom  are only a few years older than  the campers. Most of the  counsellors are hoping for  careers in medicine or nursing,  or a branch of social services.  Bul ultimately, it's the love of  kids lhat drives the staff, encouraging kids to test their  wings early and often.  "It's important to remember  that behind a child with cancer  is a child lhal has normal  developmental needs," says  Brenda Eng, an oncology nurse  al Vancouver Children's Hospital. The altitude brings oul the  best in the kids: the determination of Erin Hewitl lo climb oul  of her wheelchair and walk lo  Ihe couch for Ihe first lime in  months, ihe patience of Sherry  Heinrichs lo leach a new skill,  and Ihe almost uniformly  positive attitude of the campers,  evidence of what Eng calls  'human resiliency, the tenacity  of living'.  I let the car idle lor a moment  in Ihe parking lot. Everyone is  dancing in the Camp Byng  courtyard, counsellors and kids,  launching a plume of dust into  the darkening sky. I can see  Sherry Heinrichs moving to the  rhythm of a Michael Jackson  song, feeling the beal in her  partner's touch, in the thrum  and pulse of the foresl floor.  And I Ihink of whal Brenda  Eng told me earlier, when we  talked, "...from these kids you  learn aboul life. Aboul taking  life one day at a time. Aboul  appreciating the things we take  for granted,"  To SCRD  Historic society j  gives money back  The Sunshine Coast Maritime  Historical Society (SCMHS) has  declined the immediate offer of  a $500 grant from the Sunshine  Coast Regional District, so that  the money may instead be used  lo help fund Crimestoppers.  Society President Joe  Belanger said his group decided  to ask ihe Regional District to  hold back the grant money  when il learned, from a story in  the Coast News, that there was  no money in the SCRD's  Grants-in-aid Fund to help  Crimestoppers.  Belanger, who said his group  made Ihe decision as a contribution to the community, asked  Ihe Regional Dislrict to defer  the money until the next  disbursement period.  The   SCRD   originally  granted the money in May to  ihe SCMHS for its proposed  Captain Vancouver Garden in  King's Lynn, England, commemorating the inaugural  voyage of Captain George Vancouver; but ihe project is still in  its early stages.  "Since we haven't yet received specifications on the garden,  we thought there was no sense  in tying up that money unnecessarily," said Belanger.  SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor, who said the Regional  District had not given up completely on finding funding for  Crimestoppers, admitted the  SCMHS decision was welcome  news.  "We were all in favour of  supporting Crimestoppers, and  we were wondering where we  were going to get the money,"  said Connor. "That solved our  problem right there."  Two charged in  Creek shooting  Two men have been arrested in connection with the July 23  shooting incident in Roberts Creek, following an anonymous  lip lo Crimestoppers.  Frank Leitner, 29, of Gibsons, has been charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault, and will appear in  Sechelt Provincial Court August 23.  Jerry Dean Puckett, 26, of Sechelt, has been charged with  aggravated assault, and will appear in court August 16.  Vancouver flights  Tyee Air will soon offer three flights daily, harbour-to-  harbour from Gibsons to downtown Vancouver. The service  will be available for $25 per flight.

Held annually on the  Coast since 1984, the camp is for children with a history of cancer  (see story'this page). ��� BnxxGifcnoii photo  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945 Coast News, August 8,1988  Comment  r  Park support  Despite the worthwhile questions raised by aldermanic  candidate Haig Maxwell concerning the purchase by Gibsons of a waterfront lot for parkland, the bulk of letters  received and a columnist's opinion this week would seem  to indicate that the purchase is generally approved by the  public, who, as the payers of the bill, are also the final arbiters.  The concern we have lies with the haste with which the  malter was undertaken. Was it necessary? Could it have  been delayed until the public expressed approval.  Our observation of local government leads us to the  conviction that much thai is done in haste is later regretted. Let us hope that Ihis is not such a case.  As a taxpayer in Gibsons, however, the writer would  note somewhat dryly lo Area E resident Maryanne West  thai her wholehearted support of the purchase would be  more impressive if she and olher rural area residents were  sharing the cosl.  There is no shortage of advice from Areas E and F  aboul how Gibsons should spend its money and howls of  outrage If Ihey are asked to contribute,  Sechelt style  Strange procedures at Sechelt Council are nothing new,  but il may be instructive to contemplate briefly the latest  library discussion.  A referendum is sought; Mayor Koch worries aboul  costs and asserts the support for the library is generous.  Certainly debatable.  Aldermen don't appear to know how much support is  given. Mayor Koch deflects the discussion to a meeting  between himself and Captain Art McPhee. Alderman  Craig is mentioned bul is ill and may not participate.  The question was should Sechelt vote on the matter and  the council of Sechell can't even vole to let the people  decide. Mayor Koch calls Ihe shots again and we worry  that his reaction has more to do wilh his antipathy towards  Ihe SCRD than his concern about good libraries.  5 YEARS AGO  Gibsons resident Ben Lepage completes a 5,400 mile  bicycle trip across Canada in 66 days to raise money for  the United Teenage Federation of NWT, an organization  started to help teenagers in Yellowknife, a community  where crime and teenage pregnancies are a serious problem.  The Gibsons Legion attracted nearly 300 people to support Operation Solidarity at a rally sponsored by the Sunshine Coast Joint Council of Local Unions and the  Unemployment Action Centre.  The long-unfulfilled dream of a marina at Gibsons Harbour will become a reality with the announcement that the  federal government commitment to the project is now confirmed.  The B.C. Assessment Authority office in Sechelt will  close because of Iheir operating budget being out by  $1,000,000, but all 15 employees will be given the opportunity of transferring to jobs in other areas off the coast.  10 YEARS AGO  John McDermott did nol break the record of nine hours  and 20 minutes for the swim between Nanaimo and  Sechelt, but he gave a triumphant shout as he emerged  from the water at 11:20 pm on Saturday night, after 14  hours and 20 minutes in the water.  15 YEARS AGO  The 1973 Sea Cavalcade, now history, surpassed all  previous cavalcades, from the opening war of pirate ships,  a knockout in itself, to the final trophy presentations Sunday night.  20 YEARS AGO  It was a great day for Pender Harbour when the Garden  Bay whale station of the Vancouver Public Aquarium was  opened. The official opening Thursday afternoon was performed by Honourable Jack Davis, new federal minister of  fisheries and forestry. Paul St. Pierre, MP for Coast-  Chilcotin had the honour of naming the three whales now  penned at the whaling station.  25 YEARS AGO  A memo from Wilson Creek notes that local fishing is  improving and to substantiate the claim the memo added:  Charlie Brookman landed a 62 pound skate, fishing off the  Wilson Creek wharf.  30 YEARS AGO  Youthful Billy Peterson, while swimming at the  municipal dock recently, noticed one lad in difficulty at the  deep end. He promptly dived in and helped him to safe territory.  35 YEARS AGO  Mr. Frank Gibson, from Gabriola Island, grandson of  George Gibson, who originally settled here on the coast  and founded the present Gibsons Landing, has been spending a few days visiting here, and staying at the Ridgeway  Motel.  40 YEARS AGO  The Board of Governors of the Pender Harbour Hospital  Society wish to announce that the official opening of the  new staff residence at St. Mary's Hospital, Pender Harbour, will be held on Augusi 21 at 7 pm.

For those of us who believe  council's first priorily should be  to provide a high quality environment for those who live  here, rather than being an instrument for those who would  exploit the area's resources for  personal gain, this change of  direction is welcome indeed.  Paradoxically, providing firsl  for the quality of life for Gibso-  nians will inevitably attract  others lo the communily.  I fail to understand this cry of  anguish lhal the marina will be  cut off from Ihe commercial  area. Il can't be any further  away lhan it is now!  Imagine what condominiums  would do for lhal area, aparl  from making us look like a  second-rale Wesl Vancouver.  Nothing to attract people lo the  lower village, just anolher street  with houses. Worse still, an extended 'commercial corridor'.  We've already two or more of  everything and who needs more  of the same? Business premises,  while necessary, rarely enhance  ihe attractiveness of a community.  Now lei's painl oul ihe con-  dos and the bush covering the  Corlell property and see il  transformed by green lawns and  shade trees, flowers and benches to rest a while, maybe even  an old-fashioned bandstand for  outdoor concerts. A perfect  complement to the proposed  theatre complex, and gracious  living in Gibsons.  Imagine coming into Gibsons  by boal, lying up al the marina,  and wandering into lown along  grassy pathways surrounded by  flowers and irees Instead of a  noisy, traffic-filled street.  After supper returning to sit  and enjoy the vista of sea and  mountains while wailing for  curtain lime. How nice for  residents and visitors alike to be  able to meel in pleasant surroundings to discuss the play or  relax before going home. The  transformation needn't cost a  greal deal of money, I'm sure  volunleer labour and materials  arc available, nor does it need  an expensive or complicated  layout. Just ask for creative  ideas. It's somelhing which  could revive that feeling of community and belonging which has  been losl as the village grew in  recent decades.  The business fraternity need  to remember lhal their raison  d'etre is to serve ihe needs of the  community, nol that the community exists to keep them in  business!  Also, the residents are their  bread and butter, visitors provide the icing on the cake. We  all like icing on our cake, but ii  doesn't make good staple fare  over the long run.  ll lakes courage lo go forward from the conventional  wisdom, that growth for  growth's sake is the ultimate  good. Someone must have an  ear to the ground and have  heard the upsurge of concern  aboul where our Mad Hatter's  tea parly lifestyle is headed; thai  if we don't soon begin lo see  ourselves as trustees of this  world's resources, rather than  just users, there'll be little lefl  for our children and grandchildren to inherit.  Congratulations Gibsons, I  see the park as a declaration of  faith in a future for our young  people; lhat Gibsons will continue to be a earing, gracious  community ralher than one  which slacks people, filing  cabinet style.  I'll gladly join a work crew  when it's needed!  Cavalcade's explosive tradition  by Bruce Grierson  It is indeed a curious thing, a  tradition to slrike fear in the  hearts of men caughl wit,h their  barques down unattended in  Gibsons harbour on cavalcade  weekend.  On Friday, July 22, the  beachcombers blew up a boat,  and the masses cheered. Many  felt it was Ihe mosl impressive  effort in recent memory, a  brazen exhibition of raw  destruction which made  beachcombers special effects  man John Sleep quite proud.  Sleep sel up ihe slunt, and he  lold ihe Coast News last week  exactly whal was involved.  The boat, he explained, was  culled from the Burrard Civic  Marina in Vancouver where ils  owner, ihree years behind in his  moorage payments, had abandoned it. The beachcombers  towed it lo Gibsons and wenl to  work on it, draining ils maw,  stapling plywood over the holes  in its side, giving it a coal of  painl.  Several days before Ihe opening of Cavalcade, Sleep and Co.  filled the hull with concrete, so  that as soon as the sides were  consumed by flame, the boal  would sink. They loaded four  garbage bags full of 25 gallons  of gas. They set the charge, six  one-pound gunpowder bombs,  arranged inside for maximum  effect.  "One was set to blow (he  roof off," says Sleep, "and the  olher five lo send gasoline into  ihe air."  The boat was anchored in the  harbour wilh sleel cable because  "the fire would burn Ihrough a  rope, and Ihen the boat would  be drifting aflame and could sel  fire lo the wharf." A wire was  run from Ihe charges lo a jet  boat moored 250 feet upwind.  And then, as a police boat and  ihe local lifeboat society kept  harbour cruisers al a safe  distance, ihe charge was  detonated.  The peculiar custom began at  the firsl Sea Cavalcade in 1971,  conceived as a festival on a buccaneer theme. The first boat to  go up was a Gambier Island  one-master be-decked with cannons and black sails, and named  the Moira Mam after then  cavalcade committee member  Moira Clement.  In following years, the pirate  idea was forgotten, but the  event remained and was carried  off withoul incident until 1979.  That was the year the job was  given lo a local resident who  blasted rock for a living. As he  had never destroyed a boal in  ihe pasl, the project was  somewhat of an experiment.  "I remember standing on the  government wharf watching ihe  boal," recalls beachcomber  assistant designer David Croal.  "One minute il was in Ihe bay,  and the next minute it was  gone."  The blast blew oul most of  Ihe windows in Lower Gibsons,  and was fell as far away as  Sechelt's St. Mary's Hospital.  "That", says Sleep, "was Ihe  only year he did it."  It May Take The Rest OS My Life  In a nutshell  It may lake the rest of my life  to decipher one fled yesterday  to wring the true meaning from even one hour  of the million incomprehensible moments  clicking like busy grasshoppers in Ihe brain.  The song a lyrical sentence makes  can only confuse and obscure  ihe real then ihe frayed memory fumbles  ihe lighl in the eyes of losl women  Ihe pain of touching the touching of pain.  Whal was, was more lhan we remember  some subtle trickery has smeared the memories  like greasy fingers on windows  save for Ihe few we rub for comforl  like cats  each olher  or Aladdin's lamps. Peler Trower  Encompassing cult of backgammon  by S. Nutter  Remember a Christmas 10  years or so ago when the stores  were full of backgammon sels?  There were $7.50 ones, middle  sized ones, and ones you could  play ping-pong on. There were  (ravelling ones in ivory and  crocodile and ones designed as  centerpiece furniture. They were  out-selling everything and soon  il seemed lhat everyone must  have one.  But everyone was not as it  turned out, playing backgammon, and that year was ihe end  of it as a universal craze, ll remains though, of course, a  famous and ancient tactical and  slashing game, holding ils interest on the track record of  time as long as chess if not  longer.  In the Year of the Trend, a  whole shelf of books of instruction sold madly. One of the best  had a picture of Ihe Master on  the cover, giving us a tigerish  grin over his board and looking  a cross between the Godfather  and the most feared swordsman  of Europe. The book was called  Backgammon for Blood.  It's one of ihe world's top  gambling games - in Monte  Carlo, on special cruise ships, in  Texas, Vegas, etc. Eli Culbcrt-  son, the old bridge master,  played a 37-hour game on some  cruise ship in the Caribbean.  It's unlikely lhat folk exchanging backgammon sels on  that Yule had ambitions for  sweeping Texas or Monte  Carlo, but it's a good family  board game, lively, boisterous  even.  A man I knew failed to carry  his wife with him into the game.  I called. She mel me with pursed  lips and pointed to the floor.  Hell? I listened: sure enough a  distant rattle and thump. They  were by the furnace under a  bare bulb. God knows how long  they had been there.  I introduced the game to a  friend, semi-retired. Semi-  retired people, in this business  anyway, maintain the appearance of being retired while  being al the same lime continuously plotting. Easy enough  with mosl of the day's needs:  walking the dog, looking al the  paper, gardening, watching TV.  It's in talk wilh friends lhal  some friction can develop. The  solution is a running game. The  man comes in: you whip out  the cards. He slicks in a comment, and it's quite OK if he  gets no reply for al least five  minutes.  My friend's game was Gin  and il had begun lo pall.  Backgammon I thoughl just a  change of pallern, bul he look  to it like a salmon io the right  bait.  I lived on a river in Ontario,  between Fergus and Elora, and  he three miles upstream. It gol  that he would arrive at my place  before dawn. Others in the  house were nol early risers. We  would take the set and lip-toe  oul onto the deck, over the  river. We were high enough to  clear the morning mists, but  often we would Hip lo see who  would face the rising sun.  And the game would go on as  ihe day progressed about us.  People gol up and bi ought us  food and drink. There was a  phone on ihe deck and he would  arrange for someone else lo lake  his mother lo (he doctor, etc.  When it was dinner at his  place Ihere'd be a sel-up ready  in a corner by the fir . When we  toned up at nighl it was with  recognition thai we needed  some shut-eye before the dawn.  This of course is obsessive,  you might say, but conversation, al our pace, went on; and  the others at least knew where  the hell we were.  We were still playing the  game when my friend moved  wiih his wife to Dallas. Looking  anything bul a rancher, he got  the righl boots and the hat and  joined (he best Texas backgammon club he could find. 1 spoke  lo him six months later and he  was holding his own. Coast News, August 8,1988  tr  Letters to the Editor  Truman innocent in Hiroshima bombing  Editor:  I would like to comment on  the letter from Isabel Ralph  concerning the Hiroshima  disaster.  The 'bomb' had been in the  making for many years, with  scientific collaboration by Britain and other allies. Up to  the time of Roosevelt's death,  Harry Truman did not know  anything about it beyond the  fact thai something very expensive and secret was in Ihe works.  His decision to use the bomb  was based on the projection of a  half million soldiers dead and a  million injured if the war was  continued right into Japan.  If Isabel Ralph had been an  infantryman facing the Japanese she might have taken a more  realistic view of things. Truman  simply did what Roosevelt and  the other leaders had been planning to do for years, that is, to  end the war and stop the  massacre.  To be fair, the Peace Committee people should investigate  a little further and ask  themselves a few questions.  Find out about the millions of  people the Japanese massacred,  men, women and children, in  their occupation of Manchuria.  The numbers are staggering,  even when compared with the  80,000 killed in Hiroshima.  What if the Germans had gotten  the bomb first? They were  working on it, and only allied  pounding of their research and  development site retarded it.  As for Mr. Churchill being  appalled, this is sheer fantasy.  Please read Churchill's  Triumph and Tragedy, chapter  19.  Ms. Ralph and many olher  well-meaning people have fallen  under the spell of the socialist  inspired anti-American movement. A little more historical  accuracy and a little less emotional anti-Americanism would  make them more plausible.  Ron Huggins  Sechelt, B.C.

How dare Mr. Long say lhal  the Socreds are committed lo  services for seniors? He has supported Vander Zalm and the  government in introducing user  fees for services seniors need  more lhan any other segment of  the population. They have increased fees for long term care  and dispensing fees for prescriptions have been introduced.  Shelter Aid For Elderly Renters  (SAFER) has nol been increased  since 1982 and there is a definite  lack of homemaker services,  forcing seniors who can't  manage without help, into long  term care facilities.  What is Dueck's long term  strategy for seniors that Mr.  Long refers to? More privatization?  A great many of the programs that Mr. Long refers to  are programs that the NDP introduced 15 years ago, programs lhat the Socreds have  watered down by not increasing  benefits along with ihe rise in  the cost of living. And surely  Mr. Long should be aware that  some of the programs that he  mentioned are federal programs  and no credit lo the Socreds.  Dueck has promised that  every senior, married or single,  will have a minimum of $150 a  month disposable income. To  date this promise has not been  kept.  We ask that the government  expand and improve support  services to seniors. We, in the  New Democratic Parly, will  continue to demand that the  government deal fairly with  B.C.'s 360,000 seniors.

Escalation in development  activity resulted in my attendance latterly in Sechell a scant  two days per week - during  which it has been barely possi  ble al the best of times (o main-  lain a comprehensive response  to the needs of almost five thou-  sant people on such a part-time  basis.

However, in review of these last  two hectic years, I find that I  have made a great many friends  In the District of Sechell: you all  know who you are, and you  have my lasting gratitude for  your understanding, and for  your support in difficult times.

The paper birds requiring  20 folds each to complele, were  created by coast residents to  mark the anniversary of the  dropping of Ihe first atomic  bomb al Hiroshima on Auiuisl  6, 1945.  The oldest hands lo fold a  crane were Ihose of 89 year old  Marlene Williams of Shorncliffe, while Ihe youngest hands  were ihose of the many children  al lairs and olher summer  events on the coasl ihis summer.  Crane folding originated in  Japan, where a legend says if  you fold a thousand cranes Ihey  will protect you from illness.  After the bomb was dropped  on Hiroshima, sympathizers  from all over Japan began sending thousands of paper cranes  lo friends and strangers in  hospitals. One 12 year old victim, Sadaho Sasaki, folded 964  cranes before she died. Grieving  friends added ihe missing cranes  afler her dealh,  The children of Hiroshima  realized lhat the death of  Sadaho symbolized the dealh of  all ihe children killed by the  bomb and Ihey crusaded to  have children from all over  Japan save iheir allowances lo  erect a slaluc in Peace Park.

From another perspective  Question of Free Trade  Coast News, August 8,1988  by Peter Prurigos  No matter what position one  takes regarding the Mulroney  government's free trade agreement with Washington, it is  generally held that such a deal  will, for better or worse, have a  deep and lasting impact on  Canada. As such, it behooves us  to think long and carefully  about the effects of 'free' trade  before we rush into it.  I have little expertise in the  field of economics and therefore I am not in a position to  make any definitive statements  one way or another.  I am still, however, suspicious of the trade pact for a  number of reasons. These sorts  of issues need to be considered  before we become committed to  a treaty which may harm  Canada over the long term. So,  although 1 don't have any  answers, I think that it is  necessary to ask some questions.  One concern stems from historical experience. In Open  Veins of Latin America, Eduar-  do Galeano describes how Britain and later the United States  dominated the recent economic  and political development of  Latin America. These industrialized, capitalist powers,  (among others), insisted on free  trade relations.  The result was that Latin  America provided cheap labour  and raw materials to the industrialized world, while they  had to import expensive manufactured goods. The domestic  economies were not able to  compete with the larger and  stronger economies of the  developed countries. The poverty of most Latin Americans  made it very difficult for local  industries to develop, partly  because people did not have  enough money to create an adequate domestic market.  The same situation seems to  have been the case in pre-  revolutionary China. The  western nations forced what  they called an 'open door'  policy on China, a policy based  on 'free trade'. The poverty,  misery, and hunger that were  regular features of Chinese life  only disappeared when the  Chinese reclaimed their sovereignty in 1949. The current  system, as totalitarian as it is,  has at least allowed China to  provide the basics for its enormous population.  Finally, the Japanese 'economic miracle' was based on a  strong dose of protectionism,  especially towards the US. Just  listen to the Reagan regime as it  attacks Japan and demands that  trade barriers towards US  business be lowered. The  Japanese seem to feel that even  their dynamic economy would  suffer from too much free  trade.  The question for Canada is  whether free trade will really  benefit the majority, or will we  eventually be reduced to the  status of a Third World country.  Gibsons residents opposed to the Canada-US Free Trade Agreement provided literature and information on the subject last  weekend at Sunnycrest Mall. ���Vem Etlioti photo  Gardening notes  by Marguerite, 886-9527  The hot summer days and  sprinkling regulations makes  our gardens show some stress,  which gives importance to the  watering method of placing the  sprinkler on low.  This will wet the soil io a  depth of six inches or more and  apply waler more directly to the  plant roots more effectively  lhan overhead sprinkling, which  allows water to evaporate rapidly and can spread disease.  Fall cabbage plants, kale,  cauliflower, brussel sprouts and  sprouting broccoli, can still be  planted, bul spinach refuses to  germinate in soil temperatures  of 85 degrees. Cool conditions  can be simulated by soaking the  seed for a few hours, then placing ii, between damp paper  towels, in the refrigerator for  several days. Now the seed may  be planted.  A similar method can be used  with carrot seed. Soak the seed,  as the spinach seed, but then put  into a plastic bag, keep ihem  out of the refrigerator. When  Ihe first three or four sprout,  carefully sow all the seed, then  water well.  Some gardeners may be interested to know lhal the Richmond Garden Club Horticultural Show is being held at ihe  Richmond Ice Arena on Salurday, Augusi 13 from 1 lo 5 pm  and Sunday, Augusi 14 from 10  am to 5 pm.

At the August 3 Sechelt  Council meeting the Library  Committee requested that council consider including a Regional  Library Function referendum  on its November election ballot  list.  Alderman MacLarty pointed  out, in agreement with the  SCRD, that, "Because of all the  villages and municipalities taking part in it (the Library Function), we would have a greater  amount of money."  Mayor Koch disagreed, saying, "1 think we're funding our  library quite well. 1 think we can  pay as we go. It's been our experience that this sort of thing  has been very expensive."  A group of representatives  from Gibsons and Sechelt  libraries and Roberts Creek and  Pender Harbour reading centres  will meet on August 23 to  discuss a taxation rate and a  five-year budget, but so far the  group has not decided how to  allot money acquired from taxes  lo each of the libraries and  reading centres.  Mayor Koch ended the  discussion by calling for a  meeting with Alderman Craig,  Library Committee head, and  Art McPhee, Sechelt Library  Board Chairman.

SEAMOUNT FOODS  now has  Snappi Fries!  Bernice Hanchar is delighted at the addition of a revolutionary new  'Snappi Fries' machine at Seamount Foods.  "In addition to grocery products, our store provides a wide selection  of services ranging from a car wash to fast foods plus a video selection  with a good number of rotating titles," said Bernice.  "So far our fast food counter has included hot dogs, coffee, slush  machine, and malt ice cream, with our specialty being sandwiches  made at the counter per customer request using fresh ingredients.  "Only one product was really missing - FKENCH FRIES - with their big  appeal to the fast food consumer. However, the traditional way of cooking french fries requiring ventilation and additional staff was out of the  question because additional space was required and there would be too  much smoke.  "The 'Snappi Fries' system has been the answer for us. It provides a  high quality of McDonald type french fries ready in a couple of minutes  just by pressing a button. There is no need for ventilation. Our  customers love them! They say the flavour's great and they're not at all  greasy!  "We will soon be serving onion rings and chicken nuggets as well."

This year is no exception and  the trip has been planned for  August 31. The bus will leave  the Royal Bank in Sechelt at  7:20 am in time for the 8:30  boal.  The return trip is planned for  the 5:30 sailing out of  Horseshoe Bay. Reservations  are recommended.  Previous trips to the P.N.E.  have been popular with resultant disappointments when early reservations have not been  made. Assurance of your booking can be had by phoning May  Widman at 885-5200. Don'l  delay!  GARAGE SALE  By the time this column  shows up in print, the gianl  seniors' garage sale will be past  history. Judging by the response  for donations the sale should  certainly be a resounding success.  In the last couple of days our  old hall has taken on the ap  pearance of a second-hand  department store. There are  very few ilems that can be named that are not represented in  the donations that have arrived  at our hall for the big event.  Our committee and volunteer  members have been working  long hours sorting, cleaning and  pricing. Without the generosity  of the donors, and the enthusiasm of our volunteers,  there could not be a sale.  Who knows? If this one is the  success the committee hopes it  will be, maybe we'll have a  repeat performance in the fall  some time. At this stage of the  game - just maybe!  PICNIC  This will be the last reminder  in the Coast News of our annual  seniors picnic at Porpoise Bay  Provincial Park on August 11 at  11 am. If you need a ride, please  be at the hall at 10:30 for a car  pool.  The phoning committee has  been actively contacting as  many members as possible with  regard to food for the lunch.

Guild holds  Ruby Lake feast  The 14th Canadian Baden  Powell (BP) Guild had another  successful barbecue at the Ruby  Lake chalet of Len and Pal Mitchell on July 28.  It was disappointing lo pick  the only dull day in a week of  sunshine, but there was nothing  dull about the activities of the  group, or the skill of Bill  Tierney and the men assisting  manning the barbecue grill, or  the marvelous assortment of  delicous salads supplied by the  ladies. Swimming, shuffleboard  and horseshoes made the time  pass all too quickly.  The Mitchells were presented  wilh an unusual rhododendron  shrub for their lovely garden in  appreciation of Iheir generosity  in  allowing  Ihe  use  of  this  delightful lakeside setting.  Ron Seale, on behalf of the  Cancer Society, thanked the.  Guild for preparing a special  chicken barbecue dinner for  Camp Goodtimes, who were  spending two weeks al Camp  Byng. The 70 children and 50  counsellors were a happy, spontaneous and inspiring group in  their bright red Camp Good-  limes t-shirts.  We (the BP Guild) were very  aware that they enjoyed our efforts by their smiles and cheers.  Evelyn Harrison, Ihe organizer  of Ihe dinner, expressed our  feelings when she lold ihem we  loved doing it for Ihem, and  loved their spirit and enthusiasm.

Mention of this incident is  also directed' at those of you  who donate to the Bargain Barn  by leaving items outside the  door when the store is closed,  because goods left outside are  often stolen or damaged by the  elements.  The Bargain Barn, a tiny  building, is presently overstocked and cannot hold any more  items until September 30, so  please hold on to your donations until then.  A special sale will be held at  our local thrift store on August  II and 13, and summer clothing  will be sold for give-away  prices.  You can help make some  space at the Bargain Barn by  delivering surplus stock to Vancouver to be donated to mentally handicapped people.  Help running the store is  always needed, and Muriel  Cameron (883-2609) or Ruth  Kobus (883-9603) would love to  hear from you if you can spare  a couple of hours for a good  cause.  The Bargain Barn is operated  by volunteers and all goods for  sale are donated. All proceeds  fund improvements to equipment and services at the Pender  Harbour and District Health  Clinic.  BIBLE SCHOOL  The Pender Harbour  Pentecostal Church 'Vacation  Bible School' will be held on  August 15-19 from 9:30 to  11!40 am for children from two  years old to those at the Grade 2  level.

NO MOTORS  In case you missed it  elsewhere in the Coast News,  motor boats (or boats with  motors) are not allowed on  Hotel Lake.  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  The beaches along Halfmoon  Bay have been alive with holiday makers and local folks enjoying swimming or just laying  around on these glorious summer days. Most of you will have  noticed how the water temperature can change so rapidly.  One day it will be beautiful,  then next morning the water is  so cold that one can hardly bear  it. So we just have to try it for  ourselves and not take anyone's  word for it. But it has been the  best swimming summer for a  long time and it's good to see so  many enjoying it.  A large picnic group were enthralled with Cooper's Green  last Saturday when they  gathered for an annual picnic  hosted by West Sechell residents  Ray and Darlene Schmidt. As  the pig roasted on the spit  Darlene remarked, "This place  is ihe best kepi secret on the  coast, it's wonderful!"  The horseshoe pilch was in  use all day and ihe beach was  enjoyed by the group of around  75 guests, some of whom came  from Vancouver and Quesnel.  A special guest was Japanese  student, Junko, who came wiih  her hostess Barbara Jackson.  Remember that the green is  available to the whole coast and  il only takes a phone call to the  regional board office lo make  the necessary arrangements.  GRACE  There is not much in the way  of an update on Grace Rutherford's condition except that she  is still in intensive care at Lions  Gate Hospital, therefore no  cards or flowers are allowed at  this time. I know that all our  thoughts and good vibes are going in Grace's direction for her  complete and speedy recovery.  FIRE CALL  The Halfmoon Bay Volun-'  teer Fire Department were called out last week to control a  brush fire in the Curran Road  area which reached within ten  feet of a residence. The fire  could have started from a beach  fire, so pl-ase be extra careful  that your fire is out completely  as the brush is so tinder dry.  MURMURINGS  There has been much reaction  to the mention in last week's  column of the suggestion having  been made to close Fisherman's  Road to the launching ramp.  The general consensus is that  'they can't do that', but  remember when we were  similarly assured that there was  no way the Redrooffs Trail  could be closed. Look what  happened on that one. So it's to  the advantage of us all to be  aware of even the remote  possibility existing. Thanks for  the many phone calls on this  matter.  -PEN DIVE  LTD.

The parking lol ai Skookum-  ehuck Narrows Provincial Park  lias been full, wilh addilional  vehicles parked all over the  place. One day there was a  record crowd of over 300.  Visilors were attracted because  favourable tides came al the  same time as the holiday  weekend.  There have been a number of  beautiful yachts visiting, loo, at  the Egmonl Marina and the  Government Dock. One was  from Hawaii. We also had a  visiting naval vessel. II had  come from Quadra Island wilh  a load of sea Cadets. They were  busy replenishing their slock of  goodies al Bathgate's Store  when wc were there.

To work on farm salmon antibodies  UBC researchers set  by Myrtle Winchester  UBC researchers are embarking on a Iwo-year investigation  lo determine if antibodies used  on farm salmon pose any threat  to consumers, and they hope the  results of Iheir sludy will  become a framework for future  Canadian guidelines in ihe industry.  Researchers will firsl al tempi  lo develop an accurate method  of delecting antibiotic residues  in the fish, ihen try to establish  an ideal 'wash-out period' or  amount of time between discontinuation of treatment and  harvesting.  Most local fish farmers use a  42-day wash-oul period, Ihe  same one used by Scandinavian,  Japanese and American aqua-  cuiluralisls, but UBC researchers are unsure of how lhal  time was established as a standard and want to do a definite  sludy.  B.C. fish farmers approached  UBC for suggestions on how to  administer penicillin to their  slock because ihe drug is very  effective in the treatment of  bacterial kidney disease.  This request led to Ihe current  sludy, funded by the B.C.  Science Council, B.C. Dcparl-  ment of Agriculture and the  Federal Department of Fisheries  and Oceans.  Said Aquarius Seafarms Ltd.  veterinarian,   Kim   Klottens,  "we'd love to use penicillin, but  the fish won't eal it. It has a  really bitter taste."  Sulfa drugs and tetracyaline  are the most common antibiotics used on farm fish, and will  be ihe focus of the research,  although the potential allergic  sensitivity to these drugs is considerably less lhan lhat of  penicillin.

Park  upgrading  sought  by Bruce Grierson  Sechelt Council has promised  to look inlo upgrading the  sports facilities al Hackett Park,  lollowing a request to council of  a minor football coach.  Gary Groenke, who coaches  Ihe pee-wee team in the Sunshine Coast Minor Football  league, asked for council's aid  in refurbishing the pavilion and  improving the grounds where  the learns play ball.  "We'd like a new building  there, bin perhaps a renovation  of the building would be more  economical," said Groenke.  The Sechell resident also suggested thai the grass be watered  regularly, exterior photocell  lighls be replaced, and a sleel  door be installed to discourage  vandalism, A meeling area and  change facilities would also be  welcomed, Groenke said.  Sechell Public Works Committee chairman Len Herder  said council is aware of the problems on ihe site, and has been  discussing ways to remedy  Ihem.  "Mosl of Ihe things you have  broughl up have been covered  in our own minds," said  Herder.  Mayor Hud Koch said lhal  among the plans discussed have  been to widen the building by  len feel, to build a new concession area, and lo lurn Ihe old  concession inlo an equipmenl  storage area.

Osborne had machined a  handsome brass cannon in miniature for Spilsbury, "to announce the arrival of his  (Spilsbury's) radio repair boal  al any and all docks on his  route."  Spilsbury became exasperated  by the lengthy cautionary advice  from Osborne aboul overloading the cannon with black  powder. "She may explode on  you..."  One day he retaliated by letting off three sticks of dynamite  ou the beach below Osborne's  place, rattling windows and selling off thunderous echoes in  the enclosed bay.  When Osborne staggered  amazed out of his cabin,  Spilsbury shouted, "See, the  cannon came to no harm," as  he pointed to the shiny brass  miniature sitting unharmed on  the beach.  Osborne never did discover  the hoax. But, do read his  priceless account for yourself.  Practical jokes can quite ingeniously prick the ballooning  vanity of the pompous.  The Trickster in some Indian  legends led the bear lo sit on the  edge of Ihe hole in the ice with  his tail in the water. Owen  Wister's Virginian, the original  cowboy hero, led his enemy to  copy his frying up a panful of  frogs' legs (obscene in the beef-  eating west) and then exposed  the enemy's foolishness.  A school teacher who had  time for pranks devised an official looking form purporting  to come from the school  superintendent, a form which  he slipped inlo the school's mail  system.  1 he form required each vice-  principal lo record the number  of Hies buzzing in classroom  windows on each Friday. Vice-  principals, finding a lease of administrative life and purpose,  Badgered classroom teachers to  count and report.  The superintendent, in his  general blur of thought, came to  believe that he had initiated ihe  form and insisted it continue.  He even inserted it in his report  lo the board. The board did nol  question the reason for such a  reporl. The prankster unfortunately, dared nol share his  secrel with any colleague.  Then there are the classics  like Ihe donation box left in  some public place with the sign  'please help'. Many a coin was  dropped into the box by  passersby.  From B.C.'s gold rush days  comes the prank of the nugget-  bearing jackpine. An oldlimer  salts a few nuggets at the bases  of branches high in Ihe tree.  Greenhorns are gathered on  some pretext to watch the  oldlimer clamber into his tree  and saw off (he salted branches  to expose Ihe nuggets. For a fee,  each greenhorn is assigned a  plot of trees.  "Saw off every branch from  the top down so's you won't  miss a nugget. The trees have  picked them up on iheir way out  of the ground." And Ihe  oldlimer   leaves   the  counlry.  *��� A to be cleared  SAVE up to 60%  JEWELLERY 30% OFF  \     Selected.

The oldtime preacher's young  son who glued together the two  pages of the Bible where his  father intended to take his text.  The next Sunday the father  began to read to his congregation, "Noah look unto himself  a wife...(flips pages)...and the  length thereof was 300 cubits,  the breadth 50 cubits, and the  height 30..."  The preacher read it three  limes, paused to wipe his spectacles then said, "Brethren, I've  been reading the Bible for 50  years and I cannol recall this  passage. Bul il confirms my  faith in the Lord's  work...Noah's wife was indeed  fearfully and wonderfully  made."  Nol amusing? Be comforted,  the preparing of a practical joke  lakes far more effort than most  of us care to pul out.

To one side of this, a jumble of broken cribbing indicated  some long defunct mining  operation. Far above us, just  below the lip of the bowl, a  wrecked car clung surreally to  Ihe sleep bank, whether by  design or accident we couldn't  decide. The road ended al a  functioning hydro-electric plant  thai bore no hydro decals or  other identifying marks. This  appeared to be Walden North's  private power source but a rock  wall behind it barred any further progress. Thwarted again,  we headed back to Lillooel.  Yvonne slopped briefly at the  RCMP office to find out where  Walden North actually was. Wc  had been on the right track but  had jusi missed the proper access road. It lay slightly further  up the highway not far beyond  the point where we had lirsl  searched.  We had a long journey ahead  of us Ihe following day, but first  we decided to have one more  slab al penetrating Walden  North. This lime we found the  right driveway and headed  down it. At the bottom of Ihe  road sal a'gatekeeper's house  and ihe formidable gate we had  read aboul. Framed by two  great concrete pillars, lopped  with lamp standards, it dared  unauthorized entry.  August 21.  New books from Harbour Publishing  A guide to off-road travel  A large man in work gear  materialized from behind the  gatehouse. He was affable  enough and answered our questions readily. Evidently, he had  done mosl of the original construction work on the facility  for Vernon Pick and had now  formed a partnership with the  new owner. When we broached  the possibility of our venturing  beyond the gates however, the  big man was not forthcoming.  "Pat, ihe new owner really  doesn't want any visitors until  we get the renovations  finished," he told us firmly.  So lhal was il for Walden  Norlh.  Back in Lillooel we checked  out of ihe hotel, had breakfast  and headed north into the  Hridge River counlry. Our main  goal was to track down  whatever vestiges remained of  Minto, the once-thriving mining  community now slumbering  under Ihe waters of man-made  Carpenter Lake. We had undertaken a similar quest last year  when we tracked down drowned  Renala in the Kootenays, but  this was a different town and  differenl territory.  The highway twisted up from  the valley and along ihe steep  canyon of Ihe Yalacom River,  loaded logging trucks challenged us al regular intervals. The  scenery was spectacular, bul we  frequently skirled Ihe edges of  nail-biting dropoffs. There were  many blind comers and at one  point a huge crumbling hole  where half Ihe country seemed  to be sliding away inlo the canyon. Eventually, we began to  descend from these giddy  heights and the road turned up  the narrow throat of the Bridge  River watercourse, where a once  mighty flood has been reduced  to a fitful trickle.  Before long we arrived at the  cause of Ihe Bridge River's  diminishment, the Terzaghi  Dam. It was named after Karl  Terzaghi, the Austrian soil  scientist who oversaw its  building in the latter 1950's. The  junction to Seton Portage  veered off to the lefl across the  dam top at Ihis point. Originally, Yvonne and I had planned to  visit this historic spot too, but  were dissuaded by negative  reports about the road. We kept  to Ihe righl and headed off up  Carpenter Lake.

Thai's why Vancouver  author and oil-road enthusiast  Mark Bostwick has written The  Four-Wheeler's Companion, a  tieJn bul comprehensive guide  io exploring the back-country  ol ll.C.'s southwest coast by car  or ii tick.  In his 170-page guide-book,  Bostwick has outlined 59 routes  within a lew hours drive oi  Vancouver, and divided I hem  -into eight geographic sections.  Most arc illustrated with access  maps or photos of inlcrcsi  points, and all begin wiih directions on how lo gel there.  Ihe mosl interesting and  ultimately practical pan of each  route summary is Bostwick's  own 'degree ol difficulty'  rating. Theeasiesl routes, usually day-trips down well-marked  logging roads,are assigned a  number of 1 or 2, while ihe  more 'expeditional' routes  receive higher numbers. I or example, Similkameen's Friday  Creek rales a 6, which, says the  legend, means, "Difficult and  perhaps dangerous lo ihe vehicle. This is ihe realm of burnt  clinches, denied skid plates,  scratched lenders...somebody  will gel stuck,..carry extra gas,  extra food, and a lool box.  Don'l go alone."  Inlormalion is ihe traveller's  mosl valuable tool, and  Bostwick has truly gone ihe extra mile lo provide ii. Aller-  nalive exits, proximity io gas  siations and campgrounds, and  seasonal and weather considerations are supplied.  The hook also includes iwo  sections Ihe green four-wheeler  will find indispensible. The first,  a guide lo choosing your vehicle  and accessories, is as informative as any trade magazine  with ihe advantage of objectivity. (Bostwick won't try to sell  you on anything you don't need  lo have a safe and enjoyable  outing). The second deals wiih  how to drive. How lo negotiate  boulders by 'rock crawling',  how io ford a rushing creek  without finding yourself and  your Toyola floaling  downstream.  Besl of all, The Four-  Wheeler's Companion is a good  brisk read, for Bostwell is deli  with ihe language and displays  an endearing sense of humour.  Al root, The Four-Wheeler's  Companion is aboul courting  new experience and aboul expanding ohe's limits. It's also  about the best investment any  off-road enthusiast is likely lo  make.

In his clear, straight-forward  writing, Hadeler leads Ihe  reader lo a simple bul adequate  understanding of ihe basic  philosophy and principles  behind this ancient system of  healing. Shiatsu is offered as an  easily-learned technique of applying finger pressure along the  same palhways of energy that  are used in acupuncture, to aid  the body in healing itself and to  maintain heallh and a sense of  well being.  Bui ihis is more than a basic  lexibook on health maintenance. It is writlcn for couples,  and Shiatsu is offered as a gill  of intimacy which Iwo people  can bestow on each other as  they take turns focusing on, and  being sensitive lo, each olher.  The graphics which accompany ihe description of each"  meridian (pathway of energy)  are uncomplicated by excessive  detail, while ihe accompanying  text describes the parts of the  body allecled, Iheir functions  from bolh eastern and weslern  medical perspectives, and the  effect lhal shialsu has on each  pari of ihe system.  Hadeler has sludied 'energetic healing systems' all over  the world, and has sludied  biology, physiology, anatomy  and organic chemistry at  western universities. In Shiatsu  For Two he has presented his  extensive knowledge in a demystified way that any beginner  can understand and, wilh a liltle  work at memorizing the various  meridians, can use.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning play was the first of this year's Summer Play Parade double-bill (see story this page). -Vern ESIotl photo  Summer Play Parade  Crimes of the Heart  pleases local audiences  By Bruce Grierson  The Summer Play Parade  began an auspicious run last  week at Gibsons Elementary  School, as the Driftwood  Players presented Crimes of the  Heart, Beth Henley's vivid and  compassionate tale of love and  loss in the American deep  south.  The Pulitzer Prize-winning  play fcalure three sisters, the  Magraths, who come together  on the occasion of a personal  crisis lo find their lives in disarray, two because they have indulged iheir passions, the third  because she has not. But it's the  very adversity each has encountered that forges a great  bond bclvveen them, and makes  ihis play - for all ils undercurrents of death and desolation  -ultimately uplifting.  The piece sinks or sails on the  strength of the irjterplay between the three women, and as  such it's a difficult and risky  piece of theatre for a communily group lo take on. To its  credit, the local ensemble rose  lo the challenge with long hours  of preparalion and some very  inspired acting.  Arline Collins, whose  southern drawl was consistent  and convincing, gave a solid  performance as dispirited eldest  sisler Lenny, while Fran Burnside was engaging as devil-may-  care middle sisler, Meg. But  most striking of all was the  work of newcomer Christabel  Watson, who absolulely shone  as Babe, the youngest sister  whose attempted murder of her  husband has brought Ihe three  together in the Mississippi  house. Watson showed incredible range as Ihe flighty,  vulnerable young belle in the  role - arguably (he mosl difficult  of the three - for which Sissy  Spacek won an Academy  Award.  In supporting roles, David  Morgan was dapper and dependable (called in late he had only  two weeks to rehearse) as hotshot attorney Barnette Lloyd,  and   John   Burnside   played  Cable  Eleven  Thurs.

Rhonda Ribordy was hilarious as the corrosive  cousin Chick, blustering about  the stage in high dudgeon and  spandex pants.  Remarkable about the performance was the play's length  -well over three hours in three  acts. More remarkable was lhat  Ihe entire audience stayed  aboard until the end, charmed  by character revealed in actions  as simple as mixing lemonade  and dealing cards, and ihe exchange of energy between Ihe  three actresses.  It's the firsl year Driftwood  has hired a professional director  for its Play Parade, and Ihe  decision clearly paid dividends.  The steady directorial hand of  Vancouver-based Ted Price was  nearly always evident - in the  rhythm of the dialogue, ihe  strict attention lo detail (Ihe  light in the fridge actually worked), and the deft use of the  physical space, as actors  covered the stage as gracefully  as figure-skaters aboul a rink,  each action growing logically  from ils precedent.  All told, it was a very i  run of a very good play, and if  Its reception here last week is  any indication, those who missed il will gel a second chance in  ihe near future.  Pinter next  at Play  Parade  Tonight marks the last performance of Crimes of the  Heart, by Beth Henley, at Gibsons Elementary School Gym, 8  pm. The Fourth Summer Play  Parade will continue next week  on Tuesday, August 16, when  Harold Pinter's Betrayal begins  a five-night run.  Where Crimes of the Heart  examines the lives of the  Magrath family through a  24-hour microcosm, Betrayal  spans almost 10 years in the  lives of Emma (Nesl Lewis), her  husband Robert (Paul Murphy)  and his besl friend Jerry (John  Morris). Time fascinates Pinter;  in Betrayal he shapes il io lead  us from the present lime back,  peeling away layers of the story  until we are left al the firsl moment of...bul that would give il  away.  Emma, Robert and Jerry  have build a tower of betrayals  lo hold up iheir lives; it's a  sophisticated comedy of errors  with the audience as voyeur to  Ihe secrets of these private lives.  Betrayal runs from August 16  to 20 at the Gibsons Elementary  School Gym. Doors open at  7:30 pm, the show begins at 8  pm sharp and there will be no  admittance after that time.

It's always good lo slarl off with the salad  bar which offers a good selection of fresh veggies, then head  into the main course where Gibb, the genial owner is on hand  to carve the delicious roast beef and ham of your choice. Try  the barbecued ribs, they are scrumptious loo. Help yourself  to mashed potatoes, peas and carrots, and if you are like my  husband and I you will go for lots of Ihe good brown gravy.  A pause for a cup of coffee is in order a! this poinl while this  ample meal gets time to settle prior lo tackling the choice  desserts, which, on this occasion gave a choice between, or  both if you wished, a rich and thoroughly decadent cherry trifle and a delicious chocolate torte. We sampled a taste of each  and were glad we did.  We noticed a fair amount of visiting families enjoying the  hospitality as well as folks from Sechell and Halmoon Bay.  The atmosphere is friendly and unpretentious, a delightful  spot at which to treat the whole family to a dining out experience. Gracious hostess Liz, was on hand to greet her  regular customers and give a warm friendly welcome to her  visitors, while two attentive waitresses tended our every need.

On  the  backhand  ground-  stroke   in   lennis,   try   to  remember Iwo key elements,  ihe shoulder lurn and Ihe weight  transfer.  If you lake the racquet back  early, with your elbow close to  your body, you will be able to  turn your shoulders so that they  are sideways lo the nel. Also, as  you hit ihe stroke, transfer your  weight onto your forward fool.  If bolh of these things are  done, you'll be hitting  backhands with much more  pace.

"> Rhythms of Life  Reflection on the window in time  by Penny Fuller  Almost a year ago, on  August 16 and 17, 1987, we experienced the 'Harmonic Convergence' (or Harmonic Convulsion as a friend of mine calls  it). In his book, The Mayan  Factor, Jose Arguelles described  this two-day period as 'window  in time' which would bring the  earth into a five-year period  of polarization and purification, which in turn would lead  through several major evolutionary stages, culminating in a  transformation of life on earth  as we know it.  In spite of some rather  adolescent derision expressed by  the media, it is apparent that far  more than the 144,000 hoped  for participated in meditation  and celebrations of love for this  earth. All over Ihe world, in  groups large and small, people  rose lo greel the dawn and focus,  on the wonder of Ihis planet.  Did it make a difference? Was  the Harmonic Convergence just  a world-wide love fesl and crafl  fair?  1 don'l have statistics of  events on a global basis. It  seems that there has been an  acceleration of major events in  political and religious arenas.  Bui I believe (hat most people  will see the mosl obvious effects  of Ihis time in Iheir own per  sonal lives, where rapid and  emotionally revolutionary  changes have been happening  on an internal level.  Throughoul 1988 there has  been an emphasis, as represented by the positions of  Uranus and Saturn, on the  struggle wilhin each of us lo express our individuality within  the confines of the restrictions  placed on us by olhers. That  spark of genius, that gift of our  true selves thai we can offer the  world has been pushing ils way  into our awareness where it runs  smack into a wall of 'thou shall  nots'.  This internal polarization is  an important issue for each of  us to resolve and balance in  preparation for new stages of  personal growth which will be  essenlial in contributing to the  resnlution of worldwide conflict. It's nol easy, to quote  Arguelles, "When ihe l.ighl  hits, the Dark gels lough." The  challenges that you are facing  now may be some of the most  difficult you will ever resolve.  There arc, possibly, key limes  for finding the answers that you  need inside yourself.  Last winler I was handed a  printed sheet which claimed that  pari of the posl-convergence  process involved intense energy  influxes al specific times beginning on February 15 and occurring   every   ihree   months  Tennis event  August 19, 20 and 21 are the  dales for Ihe Annual Sea  Cavalcade Tennis Tournament.

It  was recommended that long  periods of meditation on those  dates would be beneficial.  There was no source given for  this informa'ion and I received  il from a friend, who got ii from  a friend, who received il in ihe  mail. Needless lo say, I filed ii  away as an interesting curiousity  and watched. It did seem to me  thai there was an increase in  emotional   turmoil   on   and  around February 15. On May  15, 1 decided lo consciously  work wilh it, and believe that  there was a significant increase  in inner clarity.  The next date, if the information is accurate, of intense  energy influx is August 15.1 can  only suggest that you try for  yourself some prolonged meditation and see if it aids you in  finding Ihe inner balance that  you need.  =Unity comes firsts  Uniting mankind can't wait until our other problems arc solved.  In fact OUt problem* arc getting worse because our world has become one country and its problems can only be solved by the uniied  will of all its peoples.  Over a century ago. Baha'u'llah, the ('(.under ol the Baha'i Faith  said: "The well-being of mankind, its peace and security are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established."  The teachings Baha'u'llah has brought from (loJ in this age show  the way to unity foi all mankind.   As wc in the Baha'i community  try to put them into practice, we are finding that there are no shortcuts, unity comes first.

Cliff  Some people have the idea  lhal church is a dry and boring  religious ceremony; bul this  amusing incident happened in a  Fraser Valley church one Sunday morning.  An elderly lady was driven lo  distraction because her husband  was forever falling asleep and  snoring   loudly   during   Ihe  pastor's sermons. She dutifully  asked the pastor for his advice  how io solve Ihis puzzle. Jokingly, the pastor suggested that  she wrap up some I.imburger  cheese in a plastic bag nexl Sunday, and bring ii io church in  her purse. The next lime thai  her husband falls asleep he advised her to wave ihe cheese  under his nose.  She complied willingly, and  nexl Sunday, true to form, her  husband proceeded lo nod off  and begin snoring during the  sermon. She quickly unwrapped  the Limburger cheese and waved il under his nose. Almost immediately the good man blurted  out, "Edith, how many times  have 1 told you to keep your  smelly feel off of my pillow!"  Solomon, the writer of Pro  verbs, tells us that laughter does  us good like a medicine. I feel  thai ihe Lord never intended  ihai His house become a place  where dry, lifeless, religious  ceremonies take place. His intense desire is lhat our lives and  times in church should be filled  wiih joyful praise in worship,  and an excitement at hearing the  pastor make God's Word relevant to 1988.

W Candidate returns to council  Maxwell adamant on park issue  Guess Where  this week's Guess Where appears for a second time and carries a  MO prize. Send your entries to reach the Coasl News, Box 460, Gib-  10ns, B.C., by Saturday this week. Last week's winner was Sonja  Morrison, Box 2.131, Sechell, who correctly identified the sculpture  ul the Arts Cenlre in Sechell.  by Bruce Grierson  Gibsons aldermanic candidate, Haig Maxwell, came oul  of the gallery on Tuesday for  round Iwo of his lussle wiih  council on its recent bylaw approval to create a walerfronl  park across from ihe old Gibsons Fireball.  Maxwell repealed (he fear he  expressed lasl week - that financing lor Ihe park has nol been  secured - bul spenl mosl of his  time ai ihe microphone arguing  thai Ihe money could be spenl in  olher ways.  "I really Ihink ihis council is  nol addressing ihe needs of (he  communily," said Maxwell.  "It's my view lhat a park is noi  a high priorily hem. We have  youlh groups hanging around in  from of Truffles; we have no  rec centre for them; we have  old-age pensioners lhal don't  like lo see lax increases; we have  the people who say, 'I want my  sidewalks, roads and lights fixed'."  Maxwell also repeated lasl  week's arguement lhal the park  will steal commercially  developable real estate and  potential lax money.  To this, Mayor Slrom  replied, "I have never ever  heard of a park interfering with  the development of commercial  property."  The mayor added that  everyone she spoke to aboul ihe  issue is 'extremely happy lhat  council has laken the initiative',  and said that the plot should be  prelected, as il represents the  lasl chunk of unspoiled land on>  the Gibsons littoral.  "Once that piece of land is  gone, we will have buildings all  along the walerlronl and no  view from the road."  Maxwell said thai, lo see ihe  waler, "you jusi have lo walk to  either of the two parks on ihe  corner."  "They're nol parks," replied  Strom. "As you know yourself,  one is a graveyard."  Maxwell, who said lhal he  fell ihe electorate would determine if council is making Ihe  right choice, said, "It's unfortunate thai the two proponents  of the project aren't seeking reelection."  Alderman   Norm   Peterson  said lhal he fell ihe park will indeed serve the community's  greatest needs, and Ihe wisdom  of ihe purchase will be borne  oul in ihe long run.  "We have given something  back io Ihe lown." he said,  "and I Ihink the townspeople  will back the purchase of that  properly as the only visual thing  we'll ever have a chance to own  in this lown."
