The  sun shined  hot, the  wheelbarrow  competition  was fierce.and  the back to  back stage  entertainmet  was enjoyod  by all.  JlK-l lollllStKII.  photo  PERC plan presented  Tlie first step to he taken in establishing area-wide recreation  facilities on tlie Sunshine Coast is  the creation of a single parks and  recreation commission comprised of members selected from  the region's four governing bodies and possibly the public sector,  according to PERC (Professional  Environmental Recreational  Consultants) spokesman John  Forsdick.  Speaking at a June 27 Parks  and Recreation Committee meeting, Forsdick said co-operation  between the various governing  bodies would be the only way to  ensure the success of the proposed IS year plan commissioned hy the SCRD.  He told the gathered politicians that, in forming the commission, it would be necessary lo  put aside their own interests as  politicians and look beyond their  own jurisdictions "...for the  greater public good."  The proposed commission  could be implemented in a number of different ways, according  to Forsdick, including being  granted an "almost legislative  role", in which it would represent all Parks and Recreation  Services on the Coast to the extent of hiring staff, and taking responsibility for delivering recreation services.  In another scenario, Forsdick  said the commission would only  supply advice and direction in  the area of parks and recreation,  with the ultimate say coming  from the Regional District.  Gibsons' Mayor Eric Small expressed concern that, in the pro  cess ol creating a Parks and  Recreation commission, his  Town anil the other municipalities would lose at least a part of  the control they presently enjoy  over the quality of parks maintenance within their respective  boundaries.  "At the moment we (the Town  of Gibsons) establish a budget as  to how much we are going to  spend mi parks in the coming  year," said Small, "We, presumably, wouldn't have lhat authority  in future years if il was the  Recreation Commission that was  establishing the overall budget."  Forsdick responded that all the  municipalities in question could,  through recommendations to the  new commission, Indicate how  much they would like lo see allotted for the maintenance of  their respective parks and facilities. He also noted lhat the municipalities would not be bound  to stay within the Commission if  not satisfied with its results.  Forsdick noted thai one of the  ideas key to the creation of a  parks and recreation commission  would be to establish a consistency of parks' maintenance for  all of the Coast. He said that  I'ERC prepared its report based  on the assumption that it's belter  for everyone to have an equal  level of service rather than have  any of the parks in a given municipality suffer for a year because  of budgetary constraints.  SCRD Director Jim Gurney  was not enthusiastic about the  broad scope of recreational activities and facilities for which the  proposed commission would be  responsible.  He felt the commission would  he expected to do too much and  predicted failure for the concept  of a recreation commission if, in  the end, it was to serve as an all  encompassing parks and recreation overseer.  "I think there is room for a co-ordinating body," noted Gurney,  "...but if you go beyond that you  reach a dead end."  Gurney also voiced concern  about what he perceived as a  possible loss of autonomy for the  various municipalities.  ,- "I think what you will have as  a result of this is a loss of ownership of the various facilities in the  various communities...a loss of  self determination,...and a loss of  individual representation." he  said.  Eric Small suggested lhat, in  order to provide a belter understanding of all the implications of  a parks and recreation commission, and how best to proceed  sample terms of reference be  with the recommendation, some  obtained.  Parks and Recreation  Committee chairman Jeremy  Frith, saying more time was  needed to analyze the PERC report and reflect on the implications of a regional parks and  recreation commission, suggested  the concept he discussed at  greater length at the next summit  meeting of the four local governments.  Olson brothers in sand trap  CHECK OUT OUR FANTAS11C  LIFESTYLE GUIDE  ^    , INSIDE THE PAPEH  Time has run out for the  Olson Druthers to retain their  status as the sole developing  group of the proposed Sechelt  (iolf and Country Club.  "The approval in principle  given by Council to Olson  Brothers Development Inc has  lapsed," read Sechelt mayor  Nancy MacLarty from a  prepared statement last  Wednesday, "as all conditions  have not been met by the  deadline of June 30, 1991."  The statement went on to  "reaffirm" council's commitment  to the development of the golf  course in Sechelt.  Dy June JO Olson brothers  were, according to a council  stipulation, to liave come up  with 100 per cent of the money  needed, or $2,675 million, to  proceed with the building of a  golf and country club on land  leased from the municipality of  Sechelt. While this is a task the  developers claim to have accomplished, they have yet to  provide any 'concrete' evidence  the money is in hand.  "The Olsons have told us  (council) that they have enough  (money)," MacLarty explained,  "but we haven't seen anything in  writing."  MacLarty said the municipality was still waiting for a  promised visit from an Olson  Brothers' lawyer who Is to  provide the necessary written  proof.  Council held an in-camera  meeting last Wednesday to  discuss the Olson Brothers  situation but the final result is  that the developers will now  have to compete with others for  the right to provide Sechelt with  a golf and country club.  "They aren't out of the  picture," MacLarty said later.  "And they may still end up  doing the development, but  now there's going to be. some  competition.'  MacLarty said the option to  develop tlie coutse would now  be re-tendered and expressions  of    interest    from    oilier  developers would he sought.  Acting administrator for the  municipality Art Lew summed  up the feeling of council saying,  "I think what we are looking for  is a solid developer to come in  and develop the golf course. It  would include rental payments  to the District of Sechelt that  would he free and clear funds  lo the District to be used as the  council wishes."  Continued on page 2  MacLarty  predicts  post office  closures  Sechelt Council will send a  letter to Canada Post supporting  the concept of a better mail  delivery system for the  municipality hut. in the same  letter, will ask that the local  post office not he shut down  The improved delivery  service council voted to support  is for more permanent  'community box' structures to  replace the existing 'green  boxes' presently found along  coastal highways.  Council was informed of a  Canada Post plan to replace tlie  existing green boxes at a recent  in-camera meeting with Canada  Post representatives  "The new community will lie  addressed according to the  street address ol the people  receiving the mail," explained  Mayor Nancy MacLarty at last  week's Sechell Council meeting  "They'll be well lit and have a  roof on them," she said  Alderman Bob Wilson added  that Canada Post lias indicated  the possibility of exchanging the  green boxes for the community  boxes sometime in I9')2. He  said the new boxes had capacities ranging from nine to 6(10  and lhal. as an added benefit,  Canada Post would keep the  area around Ihem free of snow  in the winter.  However, according to  Nancy MacLarty, there was a  down side lo the in-camera  meeting with the postal  corporation  "It does look as though we  may not have a post oflice,"  acknowledged MacLarty,  She told Ihe Coasl News that,  while she fully expected Canada  Post to deny the statement, she  was convinced by tlie meeting  with representatives from the  federal institution thai the post  offices in Sechell and (Iihsons  would close afier the present  post masters retire or leave  "The feeling we got (from the  meeting), was thai small town  post offices are on the way out,"  she said "They aren't seen as  profitable."  The post master for the  Sechelt Post Office Helen  Wigard, however, doesn't  believe the offices will he  closing "The people at Canada  Host deny that this is an issue,"  she said "They've jusl replaced  both post masters (in (Iihsons  and Sechelt) In the lasl year and  a half Thai would have been a  perfect time to close them (the  post offices) if they were going  to"  lliina Beiks, spokesman for  Canada I'ost in Vancouver, told  the Coast News there are  'absolutely no plans' to close  either the Sechelt or the (iihsons  post offices She echoed the  point of Helen Wigard lhal new  post masters had been recently  hired for the two offices,  "There is an assessment of  locations done anyiime a  postmaster retires, transfers, or  whatever.'' said Beiks, "lun that  is lo determine the best way to  provide service lor a community "Ihere is no hint lhat  either of those two offices will  he closing."  Fireworks over  Trail Bay  Residents pause on a Canada  Day evening to watch  Sechelt Celebration Days  wind down with an  impressive fireworks  display. Joel Johnstone  photo  mm  -' .-��'->������>- Coast News, July 8, 1991  JFEEDBACK  We at the Coast  News know how  easy it is to take the  beauty that  surrounds for  granted, so we  decided to ask a few  visitors to the Coast  ..."what do you  think of the  Sunshine Coast so  far?"  BARBARA       AND       DEL  DAUPOSON  Just retired Del and Barbara  have been travelling in their  motor home since February and  have been on the Coast for a  week.  "I lived in Sechelt from 1954-  59   and   1   have   very   fond  memories of the Sunshine Coast,"  said Barbara, adding "It's still  gorgeous!"  "I've been up here four or five  times," noted Del. "We come to  visit Barbara's brother and his  family who live in West Sechelt.  It's a terrific area."  There has been unbelievable  growth since the 50's!" exclaimed Barbara. "It's not at all  like it used to be."  BILL AND LaFERNE EITHER  AND GRANDSON DUSTIN  "Wc hail from Port Alberni,"  said Bill as he, wife LaFerne and  grandson Dustin (who lives on  the Coast) left Davis Bay beach  after a visit last Thursday.  "It's the second time we've  been up here. It's really nice,"  allowed LaFerne.  "It's beautiful country and if it  wasn't so damned expensive in  terms of houses and property  we'd move here when I retire."  ��� 3  DAVID I OSIER/SHARON  MADDEN  The Coast News discovered  this travelling couple Irom  Mackenzie, DC breakfasting at  the provincial campgrounds ill  Roberts Creek.  "Yes, this is the first time  we've been here on the Coast",  smiled Sharon, adding "I really  love il!"  "Il's very relaxing", said  David, "and dial's just what we  came here for. We've both got  really hectic jobs!"  <^mm^^aia)jmJL^^m"  ��� __r__f-   *     ___�� '.  s -^������f  iyi      ..r'&mXwQ  siXWKt*^.  JACK AND MARGE GRAFF  Neighbours of Harold and Pat  back in Beaverton, the Graffs  were busy getting their boat in  order, preparing to head out  from Ihe Porpoise Bay provincial  campgrounds when the Coast  News caught up with the  couples.  "We've visited Vancouver  Island, hut never the Sunshine  Coasl", said Marge.  "We had heard a lot about  your area," added Jack. "It's certainly living up to its name. This  sunshine is fabulous!"  DAVID BERRY  A resident of Edmonton,  David was exploring the ('oast  with his teenage children. Cara  and Ryan.  "We're spending three weeks  tenting it", said David. "We got  some great weather! And as for  the Sunshine Coast, what I find  amazing is that it's as peaceful  and quiet as it is - given how  close you are to Vancouver."  HAROLD AND PAT HEWITT  With their sailboat in tow,  Harold and Pat recently arrived  on the Coast from Beaverton,  Oregon, a small community outside Portland.  "We came and camped here  about 10 years ago," Pat recalled,  "and we found the Coast to be a  very attractive place to vacation."  Grinned Harold "We eat in  your restaurants and spend our  money!"  CATHY, DAVE, HELEN (4) AND  PETER(2)YOUNG  This Young family were from  Calgary, and had been camping  on the Coast for several days  when interviewed by the Coast  News.  "We're planning on heading  north at some point," said Dave.  "But if we love it a lot, we might  stay in this area for two weeks."  "It really is quite beautiful,"  Cathy commented, glancing  around at their campsite. "It  seems so very quiet."  Asked what she thought of the  Sunshine Coast so far, four year  old Helen thought for a moment:  "I like the trees. 1 like the  branches. That's about it."  Mayor Blain passes away  A former mayor of (Iihsons,  and an intensely enthusiastic  golfer, Lome Barr Blain died  Sunday, lun 30 at 10 in the  morning. His daughter Florence  was at his bedside when he  passed away. Sons Norman and  Tom had kept vigil in his hospital room during the last two  weeks of his life.  "It was a long illness," said  his wife, Amy, "and now he is  released from pain. In all the  months the illness wore him  down, he never once complained."  Lome grew up in Vancouver  where be was born in 1913. He  and Amy were married ill 1937  in Christ Church Cathedral,  Vancouver.  "We had our 54th anniver  sary this year. He was a wonderful, caring husband," Amy  said.  Lome's brother. Ken, and sisr  ter, Evelyn predeceased him.  Two sons of Lome and Amy  died some years ago in acci  dents. "It was very hard to deal  wilh that," Lome once said.  "We have lived here and left  and returned many times since  our first time working at Port  Mellon in 1937," Amy said. "We  lived in a tent and had to leave1,  when the mill closed."  "Since our fifth time back  we've lived here for tlie past 25  years." In his work years, Lome  was a life insurance salesman in  Nelson and here, furniture store  operator with his brother Ken  in Kimherley, and in the latter  years with BC Ferries on the island and at Langdale as terminal  manager  When he retired at 63, Lome  gave golf his full time attention.  "He sustained a severe neck injury before his retirement and I  and Ills secretary persuaded him  to retire when he did."  Lome had told some of us  Continued on page 20.  Gibsons Library gets grant  An additional bonus incentive grant of $1 per capita has  been awarded to the Gibsons  and District Library.by the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs,  Recreation and Culture.  This brings the grant to $2.90  per capita ,for a total of  $17,855., an increase of over  $6000 from last year.  Librarian Myma Short told the  Coast News the grant will bring  the yearly budget for the library  to $67,855-  The new grant is for the purchase of books, while the  remaining $50,000 from the  Regional District is for operating  expenses.  Short said 1986 census figures, generally considered to be  inaccurate in light of obvious  population growth on the Coast,  are used to determine grant  totals  The bonus incentive grant  came as the result of a referendum held two years ago which  showed strong support for the  library from users in Areas E and  F.  Short said there has been a 9%  increase in circulation during the  past year, making the (iihsons  library the second most used library in the province in the  Public Library Association  cateory.  Short also said inter-library  loans and a photocopier are now  features of service at the library.  With an urgent need for more  space, a committee is presently  investigating options for expansion. Users are asked to fill in a  questionnaire available at the library which will give the  committee the information they  need for expansion plans.  Thanks from the Coast News  Hey Frank! Our thanks and gratitude to yourself and the  gang over at Peninsula Transport for so graciously supplying  us with a flatbed and driver (Yo, Ted, you were great!)  during the Celebration Days Parade. We couldn't have done  it without you!  Jan Michael, Kathleen and the rest of the Coast News family.  Olson brother-  continued from page 1.  The concern in awarding the  contract for a Sechelt golf  course seems to be that the  residents of the community  don't end up subsidizing a  losing proposition. The fear is  that, if Olson Brothers were  allowed to go ahead without  the required capital, it would  somehow fall to council to  pickup the shortfall.  "We want the golf course,"  states MacLarty, "but not at the  expense of the taxpayers.  Multi-purpose  park planned  in Roberts Creek  by Rote Nicholson  An outdoor recreation park  on Block 1313 came a bit closer  to reality last week with the  formation of a task force lo get  the project underway.

Additional members will be  appointed from the Town of  Gibsons, the Elphinstone  Electors' Association, the  Equestrian Society, the Forest  Service and the Ministry of  Crown Lands and Parks.  The new group will function  as a committee of the Economic  Development Commission  (EDC), and Economic  Development Officer Bill Moore  will be the project coordinator.  The hundred acre parcel of  Crown Laud heing considered  for the park is a short distance  above Highway 1(11 just past  the cemetery in Roberts Creek.  Earlier this year a subcommittee of the Outdoor  Recreation Committee explored  several options for the new  park. Originally sparked by the  Sunshine Coast Equestrian Club,  the concept gradually grew to  encompass other recreational  interests.  Subcommittee members Lisa  Williamson, Jeremy Frith and  Chris Kindt visited the Campbell  Valley Regional Park in Langley,  and picked up several ideas  which would be useful in planning a similar park on the  Sunshine Coast.  The group reported that the  Langley park, in addition to  providing trails, show areas and  other facilities for equestrians,  also has areas set aside for  camping, hiking and picnics, as  well as an arena for agriculture  shows.  An action plan presented to  the EDC last week recommended preliminary planning  begin this month and set a target  date of the fall of 1992 for beginning the development of the  park.  What's wrong with  It has to be admitted that the  grass around the place where I  live had got pretty high. Not as  high as an elephant's eye  perhaps, but high. Not just a let-  alone lawn, it had attained  status as a mini-meadow. Hip  high in some places that you  might ordinarily think of as  lawn.  It waved in the wind. It had  dandelions and buttercups and  little white flowers waving  along wid) It. Butterflies  fluttered above it in the  mornings as the birds bestirred  themselves. Dragonilies later  and finches and all the rest.  Small movements in the grasses  hinted at mice and other small  codenizens of the prairies.  Looking out over it, of  course, enclosed In an ordinary  building lot circled by more  dramatically civilized lots, it  was not too sentimental to think  that this was a little bit of what  we had all come out for- our  fathers or whatever- nature in  the raw as they used to say.  This was not, of course, how  our neighbours thought about  it. I don't think anyone ever said  a word about it, but it was clear  of course from all around that  they knew where the delicate  dandelion seeds floating daily  over their grimly nurtured  footage came from. There were  unmistakable looks etc. It was  not possible to cany on, not  carrying on.  So last Sunday an ironic  sport friend appeared with a  scythe. A large gas mower  followed. Everyone assembled  for a drink. Something had been  accomplished.  The mini-meadow had  become a lawn. Granted a  rougher, more paddock-like  lawn than any of its neighbours,  but you would have to say a  lawn. People had a beer and  looked out agreeably on it.  Nothing moved that I could see.  It had been a simple matter  of sloth with us, that we had  not kept our grass cut. We were  certainly making no statement.  But you can wonder, really,  how it came about - this passion  for snipping all grass In sight  down lo the nearest thing lo a  billiards table. And keeping it  that way. Year after year,  generation after generation.  Because, of course, we have  these pictures of Victorian and  Queen Anne and Stuart gardens,  and Fontainhlcau and all that.  Vast expanses of the stuff and all  immaculately clipped.  Go back only to the well  known garden dwellers of the  last century - Wordsworth,  Coleridge, Fitzgerald, Leigh  Hunt... These fellows  practically lived in gardens, and  they were always having their  pictures painted, or drawn or  sketched. Did you ever see a  picture of Wordsworth cutting  his lawn?  When we come to the  camera it is just the same. The  early photographers were  immensely keen and whirled  about taking everyone doing  everything. The pictures are  preserved, god knows. There  are endless pictures of H.G.  Wells with a croquet mallet  (and a glass), but not one I have  seen of H.G. with a mowing  machine.  It's the same with all die rest.  There they are lolling about on  IN A NUTSHELL  S. Nutter  the grass, clipping roses it may  be, digging in the borders,  pitching stuff into the compost,  but not one is paying the least  attention to the grass.  Initially, one supposes, with  the great manorial sweeps of  grass, the answer would have  had to be sheep;and indeed  there are little bunches of sheep  to be seen in some almost  architectural paintings. There  were popular paintings not so  long ago of little flocks of sheep  making their way through  villages and towns. What would  they be doing there with all Uie  grazing outside? Aliha!  I would have no objection to  surrendering mini-meadows to  rounds of sheep, complete with  shepherd, (preferably in smock  and with a proper collie). It  would make the week-ends  Immeasurably more peaceful,  Increase the supply of lamb's  kidneys In butcher shops, and  have any number of advantages.  I suppose though, when we  came down to it in Gibsons, we  would have to consider the  ferry traffic.  ���-MMM  ____���  ________  _____ Coast News, July 8, 1991  3.  A noisy plea for silence  The lime has come to outlaw  machinery. Or, at least, to place  severe time limits on its use.  This admittedly irrational  and wildly Utopian answer to  many people's prayers  (assuming they can be heard  over the noise), came to me  quite suddenly and rudely while  fishing.  Not quite fishing, actually. I  had just nonchalantly trundled  across Halfmoon Bay, from the  floating herring bar cum bait  stand to Etta Point, in search of  a singular arrangement. I am in  the midst of cutting a disgustingly duplicitous deal with  some Rock Cod amigos of mine.  The deal is that I catch a salmon  introduced to my hook by the  Cod Squad, and ihey live to  catch hell from some finny  tribal elder who lectures them  on selling out a kindred species.  The arrangement made, 1  journey African Queen style up  a nearby narrows to file down  my trebles and perforin the last  rites over half a dozen sacrificial  herring. Eventually I come upon  a secluded lagoon of such tranquility that, within seconds. I  am lying prone out on deck, a  natural nirvana within my ken.  I am transported to some  funky primeval jungle, or as  close as one cam come while  ultimately anchored in 1991.  And as we grope towards to  21st century like so many  parched souls in search of some  mystical spiritual water hole, I  have fallen through into a world  of purely natural sounds and silences.  Natural and manmade  sounds used to dominate the  airwaves, but no more and not  for longer than I care to contemplate. Tlie Machine Age  which we have scarce begun to  appreciate, since we are too  caught up in it to understand  the nature of the beast, is synonymous with "noise". Not all  sounds are noise, I grant you,  but most of the sounds we agree  to he noise emanates from machines, and that's more noise  than any central nervous system  can tolerate without regret.  So there I am, I ranked hack  to Eden by this eerie little lagoon, watching as an  Antediluvian sea serpent wearing a "BE PATIENT: HUMANS  WILL RUST OUr surfaces, her  scales glistening in the placid  waters. And despite her 30 or  40 tonnes of sinuous bulk, the  sounds she emits are music to  my grateful ear.. Crazily  enough, the silence is still here,  cradling the serpent's whoosh!  and I revel in contradictory  worlds simultaneously.  Suddenly I am intruded upon  most painfully by the coughing  yowl of a power saw. Tlie machine's audio teeth tore into the  gossamer fabric of :.iy preter-  naturally natural moment, only  to be followed by the hammering of nails.  Remorselessly plunged back  into man-on-deck-of-boat-on-  Halfmoon Bay-1991, the fust  thing I notice is that I have  drifted within 30 feet of the Key  Largo, a sleek cruiser of the  moneyed class.  What's left of my mind is at  the moment in traction, a consequence of the wrenching reality adjustment perpetrated by  the klaxon song of the saw. I  begin free associating wildly.  Key Largo. Classic gangster  thriller. Edward G. and  Humphrey B. Hurricane, the  Florida Keys. Lauren Bacall's  cigarette fingers, a cigar-smoking  bathrobe. But what have these  images got to do with...Now?  Tlie noise, me bucko, the  noise The saw, die hammer,  my outboard motor (which always sounds pleasing to me),  your cars, her hair dryer, his  airplane, their 100,000-watt dog  whistles and car alanns - The  Noise. Key Largo was a terrifically noisy movie given that,  mostly, for 100 minutes, a  bunch of desperate characters  shout at each other virtually  nonstop. Made, I think, in the  1930's, the film has proven  eerily prophetic with regard to  the planetary problem of noise  pollution.  Frankly, we're all of us  yelling and janimering at each  other, frantic to be heard over  the fantastic din drumming between our inner ear bones.  Mass advertising, Big Brother  with a game show grin, is really  all aboul who can scream the  loudest and longest for attention. Generally, each of us has  to raise our voices to make ourselves heard over omnipresent  MACNOPOLL. Machine Noise  Pollution. Step right up. folks!  MACNOPOLL is a nifty, vibrational stimulant which kills  slowly, and features a witches'  brew of potent symptoms, physical, psychological, and emotional. It's free, it's a little some-  FROM THE HIP  J.M. Sherman  thing' on the house, courtesy of  Progress, that all-purpose deity  without which tlie Machine Age  might have died before its first  lube job.  Almost forgot. The argument  that "human noise" is at leasl as  big a problem as MACNOPOLL  falls on deaf ears in these quarters The human has a voice  which can offend, the machine  is almost invariably offensive.  Oh yeah, the sound of the  hammer echoing in my lagoon  didn'l bother or offend me in  the slightest because the hammer too, in ils own way, has a  voice. In fact, it sounded to me  son ol like on giant clam rapping at the shell of another or  my sea serpent hutting her head  against a Douglas fir.  Slihlih... there she goes  again.  1  m'         ajfc  *"�����            ���,  ���a***                   '$  __.__*  ��� A _______                     ___________  -   M        ^���aa^l              M  Ed Hill of Gibsons with close friend Roy Vickers.

I had  wandered in there, as was my  regular wont then, looking for  someone congenial to quaff a  few tankards with. "Hey, Pete"  said an unfamiliar voice.  1 turned to see a small  becapped, bearded man, I didn't  know from Ada. Curious, I sat  down at his table. It turned out  that artist/actor, Frank Lewis, a  mutual friend, had described  me to him and told him to look  me up if he ever came to  (iihsons. Joe Austin and I  became fast friends from that  point on.  Joe had arrived on the  Sunshine Coast to become a  permanent member of the  Beachcombers' cast. Ironically  enough, Marc Strange and his  then-wife Susan, the originators  of the highly-successful series,  had had Joe in mind for the lead  when they first conceived it.  Mother Corp however, had her  usual way and the initial  concept was radically altered.  Tlie series was changed from a  drama to a comedy and other  actors were brought in lo play  the leads. Commercially, this  may have been an astute move  but it left Joe Austin out in the  cold.  Finally, when another  character actor died, Marc  Strange was able to write his  old friend into the script. Joe,  with his consummate  professionalism - his utter  believahility, added much to the  series over the ensuing years.  Don Williams, who directed  the show for several seasons,  once summed up Joe's  contribution, "Joe Austin has an  amazing face," he said. "He  exudes honesty and reality. The  man is invaluable to any project  he undertakes."  Shortly after Joe was  contracted to play the role of  ihe grandfather in the  Beachcombers, be and his  wife, Virginia moved to  (iihsons, purchased a house on  Seaview Road and became  permanent members of the  community. They added a great  deal to the flavour and character  of the town  Joe Austin offscreen was very  much like the people he  portrayed as an actor: kind,  funny and completely without  pretense. He could floor you  sometimes with his upfront  statements - but he was never  mean He simply spoke the  truth. I can remember sitting in  the pub on many occasions,  hoping to hell he'd show up.  Then he'd make his way  carefully down the stairs with  his stick and his cap and the day  would become worthwhile.  We'd sometimes talk for hours  about show biz, sports, old  friends, the world, the weather  and the rising price of booze -  anything that came into our  heads. It was a glad  camaraderie.  That camaraderie persisted  for a good long time. At one  point, Joe devised a scheme to  sell my poetry to the schools.  He came over to my house  several times with a recording  engineer and got me to tape all  the things 1 had ever written that  were even marginally worth  preserving. Alas, nothing at all  came of his endeavor - but Joe's  kindly intent was there.  I remember well, Joe Austin's  70th birthday party. It was held  above the Lucky Dollar Store  and all our rowdy friends were  there - not to mention our  various ladies It was a riotous,  generally happy bash where the  Continued on page 20.  to the Queen, has been retained  as the artistic advisor fur the new  northwest wing of the  Vancouver airport.

Tlie incredibly successful fundraising and educational campaign of the  Sunshine Coast Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a  glowing example of communily cooperation at its Ik-si  On the other hand, at least as many projects have heen sabotaged hy in-fighting, personality conflicts and power plays..  The acquisition and revitalization of the Women's Institute Hall  in (iihsons is a most unfortunate example of myopic  fragmentation.  Five years ago, the (iihsons Landing Theatre Project (GLTP),  spearheaded by such nationally respected people as Kai Purdy, set  out to build a vision of a first class theatre in (iihsons, with the  potential lo support a semi-professional theatre company. Experts  were consulted about the feasibility of such an endeavour, and  solidly endorsed it as having great potential  A professional fund raiser was hired, and through his efforts a  good start was made, with the project reaching third place on a  list funding targets for the National Arts Council All they needed  was continuation of municipal and provincial support  Just about lhat time, the Heritage Sociely decided they had a  better idea They approached the School Dislricl and asked that  the Women's Institute Hall he relumed to the community , to he  restored as a heritage building, community cenlre and theatre  The proponents of this plan had a much broader base of support, the history huffs liked the idea of having the old hall restored; the community desperately needed (and still needs) a centre in which to hold activities from pottery to dancing; and the  theatre aspect was less ambitious.  Detractors had always maintained that (iihsons and surrounding area could not support the GLTP. vision. Nobody believed it  could support two theatres.  (iihsons council, as was iheir nature al the time, wobbled  about supporting the GLTP until the project lost credibility with  Ottawa (due to lack of municipal support) There has been no  recovery from that devastating blow.  The group established themselves as the "No Name Theatre  Company" and preforms out of Roberts Creek Hall  Now, the Heritage Society appears to have been swallowed up  by the Driftwood players (separate from the No Name group),  and its hoard of directors is dominated by recent recruits whose  primary interest is in that theatre group.  Although the money received from the provincial government  for restoring the Women's Institute Hall is locked into that purpose, no other heritage projects are getting any attention from the  group. Pioneer Days and the Fall Fair have been taken over by individuals, having been ignored hy the society,  Permanent seating is now an integral part of the building plan.  with the basement being designated for slorage. a green room and  a space for the potters All other community groups and anyone  who thought their might be a revival of community dances may  as well look elsewhere  So, any hopes of developing (iihsons as a 'West Coast Stratford'  are virtually down the drain, at least for this century The Heritage  Society is too busy building a 'community theatre' to be concerned about old fashioned things We will end up with a little  community theatre competing with another little community  theatre, thereby diminishing the talent and energy available to  both. And (iihsons still doesn't have a community hall.  Let's hope somebody's getting what they want out of this  No complaint  Well, it's summer and the tourists, travellers, and seasonal  residents are here among us again.  And, once again, grumbles of discontent can be heard emanating from an insignificant minority of Coasters These disaffected folk mutter imprecations about "summer complaints"  who. apparently, have come here intending to ravage the landscape, take the best seats in the restaurants, and catch the few  remaining coho.  What nonsense! Check out the dumpsters at Davis hay during  the winter, for example, and then blame tourists for trashing the  Coast during the summer. This antisocial attitude smacks of  rank provincialism and hardly reflects the basic friendliness and  friendly tolerance for those sojourning amongst us.  If there are specific, legitimate complaints to be made, so he  it. But blanket indictments and stereotyping are unfair and  counter-productive.  lust inside the eastern border  of Manitoba we pass a sign  which Informs us that we are at  the longitudinal centre of  Canada Ninety-eighty degrees  and 36 minutes of longitude  marks Uie hallway point from  the wesi coast of our setting out,  to tlie east coast of our  destination  II we seem to be crossing  Canada at a rate just slightly  faster than the covered wagons  of the early nineteenth century,  thai is because there are so  many people In the crossing.

Rosemary then was  pregnant with their first child,  born in Whitehorse in June of  that year Today there are four  grown children, all of Ihem  with us at the cabin they helped  to build, on this weekend of  Canada's 12.Ill birthday.  Then we argued the affairs of  die world - Farid slyly reminds  me of my touching and  Nostalgia on  Canada's birthday  MUSINGS  John Burnside  misplaced faith in Prime  Minister Harold Wilson of the  U.K. We played badminton,  rode horses, caught fish and  i played chess.  Wc took up our friendship,  as is the way of true friends, as  though it were just last week  that we were together. Fish have  been caught in the teeming  waters of Lake of the Woods  and the renewed chess rivalry  stands al two-two.  When we left BC the  grievances of Canadian truckers  were much in the news.  Somewhere near the Manitoba-  Ontario border there is a road  freighter pulled up near the  highway Tlie sign on it says  baldly 'Rig For Sale' and it  underscores a commonality of  concerns which plague  Canadians on the eve of the  country's 124th birthday.  A social worker in Saskatoon  confides that cutbacks in Child  Protection Services in all three  prairie provinces have them on  the verge of disaster. Disaster  has already struck in Alberta,  followed hy hasty field hlrings  in the wake of disastrous  publicity for the government.  The 'downsizing' begins again,  however, as soon as the  publicity dies away.  In Manitoba and  .Saskatchewan the governments  are decentralizing - moving  government services from the  capital to the rural hinterlands.  It is generally seen as a sop to  the rural voters on which both  governments depend, rather  than a bona fide attempt to  improve services.  Everywhere there is cynicism  about government and an alarm  for the country's future.  In Winnipeg there is greal  concern about development  being allowed around the lake,  which provides the city's  principal source of drinking  water. The situation is the more  complex because Shoal Lake is  in Ontario though it supplies  water to Manitoba and we have  the classic Canadian dilemma of  conflicting jurisdictions  An excellent columnist in the  Winnipeg Free Press, Frances  Russell, writes her concerns  about the Free Trade  Agreement. She quotes, on the  heels of a plant closure in  southern Manitoba, a score card  kept hy the Council of  Canadians on the effects of free  trade:  "Net job losses (in Canada),  over i 15,000; a decline in the  overall Cross Domestic Product;  an increase in foreign takeovers  of Canadian companies; an  increase of nearly 100 per cent  in permanent plant closures in  Ontario alone; textile  manufacturing down 30 per  cent; clothing manufacturing  down hy 18 per cent; steel  manufacturing down by almost  30 per cent; in 1990, 656  trucking companies closed, up  to 7. per cent in one year; 16  straight defeats and just one  extraordinary win for Canada in  trade disputes with the United  Slates; foreign ownership of the  oil and gas industry up from 34  per cent to 43 per cent."  The chairman of the Council  of Canadians, Maude Barlow,  states: "All the statistics show  that the world as a whole is  becoming poorer. We are seeing  a last grab of the wealthy of the  world to keep wealth for  themselves as die poverty  spreads. The Third World is no  longer a geographic place. Third  World conditions exist in the  inner cities of the United States  where the infant death rate  rivals anywhere in Asia, Africa,  and Latin America."  So we play chess, Dr. Sharif  and 1, in a cabin on the Lake of  the Woods. Like most  Canadians, I suspect, we find it  more comfortable here in the  centre of Canada 124 years after  Confederation to look back  with nostalgia, easier than it is  to look forward with hope.  LETTERS  Who suffers from  cutbacks?  Editor's Note: Since this letter was written, former  Gibsons Mayor Lome Blain  passed away. Our heartfelt  sympathies go out to his  family.  Minister of Health  Brace Strachan,  Parliament Buildings,  Victoria, BC  Few of us stop to consider  the problems most people face  when it comes time to die. Even  fewer deal with the reality of  that pre death period which  separates good health from the  funeral home.  Over the past year, I've had a  chance to see our health care  system at work. My father, former Gibsons Mayor Lome Blain,  lies here in front of me, just  hours or days away from death  from cancer. This time last year  he began suffering the pain and  embarrassment that comes with  serious illness.  Our first contact with the system came when the Sunshine  Coast Home Support workers  began their visits. They did a  tremendous job making Dad's  traumatic early stages at home  somewhat easier. This tough  transition period was followed  by a move to St. Mary's Hospital  in Sechelt, several more weeks  at the (iihsons Kiwanis Care  Home, and ended with a final  move back to St. Mary's  Palliative Care Room for the  terminally ill where Dad now  lies.  Along with the tremendous  care he received from all the  professionals, hospice volunteers (people who counsel the  terminally ill and their families)  as well as family friends, provided much needed support.  I belabour the long and relatively difficult description of  Dad's final days for two reasons.  First, on behalf of both Dad and  Mom, I wanted to express our  sincere and deepest gratitude to  all those professionals, volunteers and kind friends who have  provided their loving support  over the past difficult months.  Second, again on behalf of  my parents, I wanted to express  my deepest concern for what I  have seen during our dealings  with BC's health care system.  The system's strength is its people - both the professionals and  the volunteers.  The system's weakness is its  apparent erosion  As deficits continue to frustrate governments at all levels,  dollars become more precious  Having seen the suffering and  degradation which hovers just  beyond the circle of our health  care system. I now realize there  is one group of people who are  incapable of crying out when  budgets are slashed  The old and infirm comprise  one of the sectors of the community which, though tending  to lie the quietest, has the most  to lose in the budgetary battles  being mobilized  Therefore my plea to you.  the Minister of Health, is on  their behalf Staff and budget  cuts al hospitals, like St Mary's,  across BC are being made with  little or no clear plan as to how  to deal with the result.  My question is this - why are  beds and staff being cut off and  limited well below growth-  demand needs at these local  hospitals when there is already  a lack of care-home facilities  sufficient to serve present needs?  If people requiring such services  are turned away from care  homes due to insufficient  resources and then refused entry  into hospitals for the same  reason, where should they go?  It appears that our family is  one of the last to benefit from  what historically has been a  good system.  If budgets have to he cut, do  those people least able to defend themselves have to suffer  die result?  Norm Blain  Void between  parents and  teachers  Editor:  In regards to concerns expressed in last week's paper hy  Susan Murray, one could admit  that she validates a school of  thought presently in vogue.  However, these stated facts are  very apparently nol voiced by  all.  As in any profession there  are those who are truly dedicated, but others who gain a  sense of power from control  over their subjects.  The teaching profession employs people who have educational expertise, yet they are not  the parents, though some do  have children in school. Over  the years a void has been created in parent and teacher relationships. This is partly due to  the simplification of roles.  It is apparent that, for some  reason, teachers (in many cases)  have assumed the role of  "parenting". Of course this has  been achieved simply by achieving university degrees.  I would suggest that more  parent-teacher interaction could  solve this enabling both parents  and teachers to maintain their  separate functions.  This might alleviate Ms  Murray's "teacher hashing concents".  Vesta Braincrd  Support is  still needed  Editor:  The following is an update  regarding the chemical treatments done by BC Hydro and  the aerial spraying of herbicides  in Doristan area in August.  I know that BC Hydro feels  that this treatment (carbo paste)  was done in areas considered to  be small, out of the way on the  Sunshine Coast. In fact, it was  an issue of greater concern to  the residents, because of other  methods used by forestry like  aerial spraying and blanket  spraying from one end of the  Sunshine Coast to the other.  My concerns are about the  use of chemical application.  This year Terminal Forest  Products will apply an aerial  herbicide spray In the Doristan  area near Egmont commencing  in August. So, in fact, after last  year's public meeting about  spraying in the area, it has not  stopped.  Wc need your support when  we meet with John Clark from  Terminal Forest Products on  July 11, 7 pm at Egmont  Community Hall.  I know this is a difficult time  of year to be bringing this to  your attention, but if you can't  make it, please write a letter on  your views to: Terminal Forest  Products Ltd., 12180 Mitchell  Road, Richmond, BC V6V 1M8,  Attn: John Clark.  Wc need lots of support, as  numbers seem to be important.  Marleen Daniel  MORE LETTERS ON  PAGE 5  CTHE SUNSHINE.  oasv  L  Tl-a-i--toC-����~ News to-(-ty owned  and pubU-ad on to S-nahlrie Coest.

People keep saying "Canada,  the 51st state" and "Mexico, the  52nd state." It is true that our  one-way "free" trade agreement,  and our US frigate on Canada  Day, show the swelling of US  dominance.  But statehood is not that easy  to get. Alaska fought hard for it.  Hawaii's career is much like  Canada's: it was an independent  country with its own king, rich  in resources, strategically located. It got the quiet campaign  to make il appear Hawaiians  wanted close lies with the US. It  got the "free trade" agreements.  It went broke and was inevitably annexed But it took 61  years before Hawaii was reluctantly allowed in as a slate.  Like Hawaii, we're likely to  be a 1 IS territory for years, not a  state. We'll have no vote in the  government that runs us. The  only antidote I can see right  now is a method successful in  other countries. An "electoral  coalition" between the  (otherwise widely differing)  NDP and Liberals, who would  have to agree on one point only:  throwing out "free" trade.  It's the rank and file of these  two opposition parties who  need to ask seriously about the  idea. They'll have to face their  deep-seated disgust with each  other. 1 think leaders in both  groups know a one-shot cooperation is workable without  changing the parties' basic platforms. But they need signals  from their members.  If we can't put "country" before "parly" by the next federal  election, then we lose our country, and parties become meaningless  Billy Griffith  Beware catalogue  quakery  Editor:  The snake oil salesmen are  still with us Yesterday I received a pamphlet entitled  "Medicinal Plant Guide: Plants  and My Health", which came  with the rest of the flyers the  Post Office delivers.  The back of this pamphlet  blares in big print: WARNING:  AVOID LOSING WEIGHT TOO  QUICKLY!  I can do that.  Under that was: PREVENT  EXCESSIVE SEXUALITY!  This has the ring of "lock up  your wives and daughters - the  navy has shore leave". Or perhaps these words might he the  first part of a bumper sticker.  You can fill in the second part  yourself. Say, "Spay or neuter  your pets" or "Watch the CBC".  And under that is a quotation  from a Dr. Alfred Taylor of the  University of Austin, which has  die flavour of something which  has been translated into several  languages and then back again:  "Plants freely offer us more  new associations than what all  the chemists of the world could  never synthesized in a thousand  years of efforts."  Talk to your plant today. Tell  it you're grateful. Pray that It  continues to be on your side.  Don't ever let it witch "Day of  die Triffids".  The claims of this company  are scary. I'm not trying to  knock natural remedies, just irresponsibility.  Never mind the aphrodisiacs,  which the company calls  aphrodisiacs without pussyfooting around. We've all seen magazine ads which refer to revitalization and new-found energy  (frequently illustrated with  middle-aged people leering at  each other). This outfit calls a  spade a spade. As an added  benefit, their aphrodisiac preparation, y-eleutherococcus, Is also  good for chilblains.  This company, which operates out of a Toronto box number, offers cures for diabetes,  high blood pressure, depression, lupus, migraine  headaches, colitis, and almost  every other ailment known to  mankind. It's all there - treatment for white hair, baldness,  and the heartbreak of psoriasis.  Since I'm in good health, I  suppose I can laugh. Rut if 1 was  ill and frightened, or if I had a  problem I felt was too  embarrassing to mention to my  doctor...  Desperate people often resort  to desperate measures, and I  wonder if some people might  reject or discontinue legitimate  medical treatment in favour of  hope.  This isn't cheap hope, mind  you, even though GST isn't mentioned on the order form. (Docs  Canada Post know what it's distributing?)  We've all seen the disclaimers which come with  usual ads for weight loss or  whatever, the ones which say  "Before starting any new diet  regimen, consult your family  physician". In other words, if  you try our treatment without  medical advice and later decide  to sue, you're SOL  Nothing, not that you could  find them if something went  wrong.  The entire gist of this pamphlet is that plants are natural  and therefore beneficial. "(Take  your nice Devil's Claw,  grandpa, it's good for your  rheumatism )  I haven't the knowledge to  say that any of these plant capsules will do harm. 1 suspect  that if nothing else, they'll make  buyers lose weight in the pock-  etbook.  I am definitely bothered by  the claims for a preparation  which is stated to be for  "vomiting during pregnancy"  Having had four children, I have  some expertise in this regard  The early pregnancy pukies take  place during birth defect time. If  the problem is acute or continues, something may be going on  which requires medical attention. We do not endanger our  unborn by ingesting unknown  substances. Or ourselves, for  dial matter.  E.M. Goldman  Remain  upstanding  Editor:  Re: "Old enough to know  better" by E. Goldman, Coast  News, June 29 edition.  The writer states, "Children  who are frequent riders, seem  unaware that they should give  up their scats to the elderly". It  seems to me public transit users  would be safer if young children were kept seated instead of  heing buffetted up and down  die narrow aisles.  I believe most parents have  suggested their children offer  their seats to needy passengers  (not just the elderly). I would  he very proud if my children  chose to be considerate.  However, after reading, "If  they're old enough to ride the  bus alone, they should be old  enough to stand", I can't help  but sincerely hope that you, E.

JM-N UHMMa, IM-JM1  As the Pitch 'n' Putt awaits  fourth and final reading by the  Regional District in tlie application for rezoning, it appears the  final plans are different enough  Irom the plans presented at die  public hearing to create major  dissatisfaction among its neighbours. Almost two months after  the public hearing and right before the Regional Hoard's third  reading, the Highways  Department decreed the present  entrance to the property unsuitable for safely reasons.  Highway recommendations  are to use Porter Road as the entrance, an undeveloped, designated road on the southern end  of the property. Porter Road is  now a band of timber stretching  from Maskel Road across Joe  Smith Creek to Joe Road.  When the plans were being  presented (o the public on April  __, a question of whether  Porter Road would be used was  asked. The response was. no.  die plans are to use the existing  driveway, and so they were at  that time.  The questioner registered his  objections to any development  of Porter Road, hut no further  discussion ensued as this did  not seem an issue at that time.  Although the Pitch 'tl' Pun  plans to develop only as much  of Porter Road as required for a  driveway to minimize disturbance, traffic would be channelled further down Maskell  Road and a buffer between  neighbours would he eliminated. Water users on Joe Smith  Creek balk at tlie thought of a  new road approaching the  creek making its extension over  the creek (o Joe Road easier (o  imagine.  Rose Nicholson pholo.  Neighbours are calling for  public input on tlie issue. They  want another public meeting  with Highways represented, before (he final reading on rezoning,  UUMY NOTES  Witli such limited space, tlie  library is drowning in donated  books and can use only a few.  So, witli great regret, the staff  requests no more donations unless the books are very up to  date and in perfect condition.  There is a new facility being  offered to teenagers on the  Sunshine Coast. It is the Davis  Ray Teen Drop-In Centre. The  building is now open from 5 to  11 pm, Tuesdays to Fridays.

"Il's purpose," Jack Reynolds,  president of Brock House, says,  "i.s to create greater public  awareness of the important contributions senior citizens are  making to our society, to recognize their accomplishments and  record them in the history of  our province."  All seniors from across BC  are encouraged to participate.  Previous recipients have come  from communities such as Port  Edward, Hazelton and  Rossland. Each nominee's accomplishments are permanently  recorded and become a valued  part of the society's archives.  Nominators are encouraged to  resubmit and update entries  from previous years.  Hong Kong Bank of Canada  joins as a new co-sponsor and  will provide a cash award of  $10,000 as well as assistance  with the awards program.  "We are proud to become a  co-sponsor of this prestigious  award which recognizes the  outstanding contributions BC's  seniors make to society," says  Maurice Mourton, executive  vice-president, Hong Kong Bank  of Canada. "We encourage all  residents across the province to  consider nominating those seniors in iheir community whose  actions have made a positive difference."  The recipient of the 1991  award will be chosen by an  eight-member selection committee whose decision is final.

One's spirit  soared as the vibrations of those  notes greeted Ihe eardrums reminding me of electric guitarist  John McLaughlin's energy.  When these two played ii  was nothing bul communion.  MacLeod's bagpipes are capable  of a galloping tempo with  Bourne's guitar racing to keep  up. Grinning and swaying, the  bass player wove these Iwo together into a fine fabric of jazz-  rock and country-blues flair.  The pavilion was great  acoustically, and the evening  was warm and splendid with  the near full moon casting a  magical romantic glow on Ihe  Rockwood gardens. But this  group makes body and soul  dance. With no dance floor and  limited evening hours, ihe pavilion put unfortunate limits on  Ihe experience.

Ian  McGlynn  Friday,  July 12th  & Saturday,  July 13th  Village Restaurant  Whenever a restaurant changes hands, its regulars experience a mixture of concern and hope in anticipation of whatever changes might occur in food quality and/or service.  Happily, under new owner Maria, the Village Restaurant in  Sechelt has only improved. On our recent dinner safari we  were most pleased with the dishes we bagged.  The deep-fried zucchini was a pure delight Lightly-coated  and crackling crisp, the hefty chunks of this garden stalwart  were bursting with juice and tasted freshly picked.  The veal parmigiano, so often a leaden slab in many establishments, was a small miracle of culinary understatement The  meat was tender and flavourful, the mozzarella perfectly  melted, and the tomato sauce full-bodied, picante, and robust  The kalamari curls were crunchy, the chopped onions sprinkled above deck providing just the right contrast in taste.  My Greek salad, a generous mountain of chopped onions,  celery, tomatoes, and cucumber (and whole Greek olives) was  crowned with feta cheese crumbs and the Village's special oil  and vinegar-based dressing.

Unfortunately the  first of the major blows to our  local side occurred in Ihe fust  five minutes of the second half;  Dill Henderson went down and  out with a knee injury. The rest  of the game was a frustrating  struggle and the Rustlers scored  26 points to our zero. Darn!!  Ah well, notch one to experience. The next match was lo  be played, get this, at 11 am.

For Infor-iation  calli 8.6-929.  or 885-7259  FINANCIAL  TIPS  Negotiate leases carefully  ���f-haikn-  There's nol too much to a  business premises lease, is  there? Jusl agree on a price, sign  on il, and the deed is done,  right? This line of thinking is  precisely how people gel inlo  ���rouble. Negotiating such a lease  is complex, and if you don't address major concerns such as  rem hike ceilings and subletting  options, you could find yourself  in an undesirable contract.  Make sure you understand  all ihe terms in the document  and that no important provisions have been omitted. You  should seek professional advice  from your chartered accountant,  especially where lengthy lease  documents are Involved. This  advice will cost money, but il  will be like insurance - you'll  have the peace of mind of  knowing you're protected.  Leases vary widely and the  following are a few points you  should consider when drafting  the contract:  ��� Computation of the renl. Rent  can he quoted per square foot  net, per square foot net net or  even net net net. This simply  refers to the practice of charging  a basic rent, plus additional  costs such as common-area expenses.  Some landlords charge a basic rent or a percentage of sales,  whichever is greater, or a basic  rent plus a percentage of sales.  Don't forget to take into account  whether the definition of "sales'  includes GST collected.  Compute the total costs of each  method carefully.  Ensure that contract terms  are clearly defined. For example, the method of calculating  common-area expenses (or occupancy costs) should be  spelled oul. Don't take anything  fur granted.  ��� It is advisable to negotiate a  ceiling on yearly increases to  basic rent and to other charges.  This prevents future disputes  over unforeseen price hikes.  ��� Agree on a provision to allow  the lease to be assigned to a  new occupant. Tills allows you  the option of moving or subletting part of the premises  ��� Draw up a provision thai protects you and your business in  Ihe event your landlord decides  to renovate the building and  must relocate you.  ��� Do noi purchase any more  tenants' legal liability insurance  than required. Some landlords  will ask for up to two and a half  times Ihe average coverage.  Consult your insurer before  agreeing lo any such provision.  ��� The length of your lease is  very important. The actual term  you select should be based on  your assessment of the location's  present and future potential.  Keep in mind thai should you  require a bank loan, ihe term of  the loan will he matched to the  term of your lease. Such  favourable factors as a good  term matched with reasonable  rent increases Ihe value of your  business, making it more attractive should you ever wish to sell  it.  Of course, a renewal option  may be available but then you  are more vulnerable lo rent increases.  ��� Don't think lhat landlords, especially large ones, won't negotiate. Landlords must he flexible  otherwise Ihey could lose potentially good tenants.  So he extremely cautious  when negotiating your business  premises lease. Dad judgements  could result in negative legal  and financial consequences. It is  well worth your while lo seek  the professional advice of your  chartered accountant, lawyer or  insurance agent. In some cases,  you may also wish to consult an  architect or engineer.  The botiom-line is, rarely is  anything as simple as it may appear. And a business premises  lease is no exception.

K2II IA-  As many as 250 American  war objectors may have settled  on the Sunshine Coast during  the Vietnam War.  The American government  may not be looking for them  any longer, but a university history researcher is.  Stephen Drcwer has taken up  where the FBI left off.  The University of BC (UIIC)  history graduate student is researching the lives and attitudes  of Ihe men - and women - who  left Ihe United Slates for Canada  because of the Vietnam War.  Brewer wants the objectors  to fill out a short questionnaire  for him, on which they will be  quizzed about their attitudes at  the time of their immigration,  their altitudes today and whal  they have done in Canada since  coming north  The questionnaires - available from Brewer at (257 West  15th Avenue, Vancouver, V6R  5A7 - can he Idled oul anonymously, he says, and shouldn't  lake more ili.iu 10 minutes to  complete,  "Mass immigration to Canada  hy Americans objecting lo the  war in Vietnam is virtually an  unstudied field." the UBC researcher says  "We know it happened, hut  we don't know, for certain,  bow many war objectors there  were, or why they really came  "My research to dale shows  the number of war objectors is  much smaller than is commonly  assumed: less than 30,000 of  Ihe   125,000 Americans who  immigrated to Canada between  1965 and 1975 can be counted  as war objectors."  Perhaps surprisingly, he says,  almost half of those war objectors were women, a group he is  especially interested in surveying.  He stresses that he is not just  looking for draft evaders or military deserters: "A war objector,"  Brewer says, "is virtually any  American who came to Canada  because of the Vietnam War,  whether they were fleeing criminal prosecution in the US or  not."  Study of the group is vital, be  adds  "Next to the mass exodus of  the United Empire Loyalists following the American insurrection of 1776, Vietnam war objectors represent perhaps the  largest politically-motivated  mass migration into Canada in  our country's history.  "Il's possible, just possible,  lhat American war objectors  will lurn out to he every bit as  important to Canada in the  coming decades as the Loyalists  were two centuries ago"  That's why it's important to  begin studying the war objectors now, while their memories  are still relatively fresh, Brewer  says.  Brewer, a candidate for a  Master's degree in (aiiailian history at UBC, expects to complete his research this summer,  and li > finish his report on his  findings in the 1991-92 academic year  Rotary sponsors exchange student  Tlte Rotary Club of Gibsons is hosting an exchange with a  Belgian student for one year, August 1991 to July 1992. The  young lady, Veronique Sohet, will be attending Elphinstone  Secondary School for the 1991/92 academic year. Ms Sohet is  18 years old and lives in Bjittice, Belgium  The Rotary Club of Gibsons would appreciate hearing from  any family interested in "hosting" Veronique for a three-month  period. They are hoping to have four families in the Gibsons  area act as hosts for the periods Angust/Sepiernber/Octobcr,  November/December/January, February/March/April and  May/June/July.  This is tlie first exchange tlie Rotary Club has heen involved  in and they hope it will lead to further outgoing and incoming  exchanges. Students presently in Grade 9 or It), who may be interested in a future exchange, should contact tlte Rotary Club for  further information on how to apply.
