 *  IINSID  The Sunshine  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VicUria. B.C. V8V 1X4  SPORTS  Page 15  Published on the Sunshine Coast    25* per copy on news stands        March 4,1991        Volume 45        Issue 9  SERVING THE SUNSHINE COAST SINCE 1945  Seminar  draws fire  of citizens  by Jan Michael Sherman  Responding to a strongly-  worded letter from Coast activist Donna Shugar condemning the character of an upcoming "Forest Land Use  Seminar" and the Regional  Board's involvement in the project, Director Brett McGillivray  commented that, "This is not  an SCRD forum���we don't  charge for our forums."  McGillivray spoke at last  Thursday night's regular SCRD  meeting where Shugar's letter  was discussed. "Industry has  organized and structured this  forum, not us. In light of conflicts coming down (around the  seminar), we should be  cautious...be seen in a neutral  light."  Shugar's letter, however,  states that, "It appears that a  very biased view of forest planning is to be expressed," judging from Ms Shugar's appraisal  of the seminar's speakers list.  Shugar urged that a second  seminar be held in which the  focus would be "the related  concepts of 'wholistic' forestry  and community forestry."  SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor, who sat on the committee  ' vhich formulated the seminar,  noted that, "The Forest Advisory  Committee   promoted  this seminar to bring in some  speakers who would speak  positively...I'm not ashamed to  say we're a part of this...attempt to give answers on  (forestry issues) that have been  raised."  Shugar also took exception to  the fact that a $10 fee is being  charged for the seminar, claiming that she was "offended".  She suggested that while "industry and ministry staff will  "undoubtedly" be compensated for their "day at the  seminar" and have the fee  "covered by their employers",  members of the public (involved  in forest planning) don't have  access to "that kind of  support".  Replying to Shugar's raising  of the issue of a fee, Director  Jim Gurney suggested that, "It  might appease some of the apprehension if it could be worked  out so that it (the seminar)  would be free���should one only  want to attend the seminar."  Gurney's statement was, in  part, alluding to the fact that a  lunch comes with the price of  admission.  Echoing���and amplifying���  Shugar's written remarks was  Doreen Bartley, Corresponding  Secretary of the Elphinstone  Elector's Association. She appeared before the board in what  proved to be an extended exchange and, aside from criticizing and condemning virtually  every aspect of what she  perceived to be the SCRD's in-  volvemnt in the seminar, indulged in a little lecturing of the  politicians.  "I don't know why others  couldn't be invited for rebuttal  purposes," Bartley declared,  adding that she was upset that  the SCRD participated in funding a seminar she viewed as "a  logging industry function."  "Are you prepared to partially pay for a seminar (put on) by  people from the 'other  side'���by those opposed to the  logging of our watersheds?" Ms  Bartley demanded to know.  Several members of the board  assured Bartley that any group  seeking financial support similar to that extended to the  sponsors of the seminar would  be accorded the "very same  treatment". Director Gordon  Wilson, in the only suggestion  made by the board which  Bartley found to her liking,  wondered if perhaps the only  thing that could be done at this  late date was lo, "recommend  to the committe involved that  ticket fees already collected be  refunded, that the lunch be  eliminated, and thai the seminar  be thrown open to all���gratis."  Peggy Connor noted tentatively that, as far as she knew,  the people catering the lunch  had already bought much of the  foodstuffs.  Bartley was further upset  when she learned that tickets for  the event were on sale at the  SCRD for "reasons of convenience". "It looks like the  SCRD is putting it on," she  said, reiterating a theme she'd  struck throughout the discussion.  "It's not our show, but the  impression is that we're running  it," a director was heard to say.  Thursday evening Arch bishop Douglas Hambidge will preside over the last service to be held at  St. Aidens Anglican church in Roberts Creek.  Pictured here, left to right, are Emily Horner, Cassie Jones, Barbara Corbet!, Cynthia Jones,  Marjorie Passmore, Shirley Gurr, and the Reverend Esther North (foreground).  The building will be torn down after the beautiful interior decorations are moved to St. Bar-  tholemew's in Gibsons.  Though some of the lot will be set aside for a future place of worship, the church group will consider during the next year how the neighbourhood might benefit from a community development on  Ihe property. _Jod John���one ���������,���  'News'welcomes Davidson  John Burnside, principal owner of Glassford Press, which  publishes the Sunshine Coast News, has appointed Jim Davidson as  the new publisher of the newspaper as well as Operations Manager of  Glassford Press.  There are three main items on Jim's agenda, the first being the  conversion of the Coast News' production system to a Macintosh  network facility. All ads and editorial copy will eventually be done  on computers.  Davidson is initiating a major redesign of the resilient weekly, by  fully utilizing the capabilities of the "Macs." Finally, and most exciting, will be the launching of a second edition���Coast Life.  A lifestyle-oriented weekly, Coast Life will be delivered on  Thursdays. It will provide comprehensive cultural and sports-related  coverage, in addition to up-to-the-minute news and editorial. Coast  Life will also supply its readers with a wide range of articles and  features.  More information on all these changes will be forthcoming in an  in-depth article which will appear in next week's Coast News.  Health hearing held?  Charges laid  Charges have been laid in  the hit and run accident that  claimed the life of Vera  Elliot, Coast News  photographer, on November  20,1989.  Gibsons resident Roland  Fleischer has been charged  with impaired driving causing death, and failure to remain at the scene of an accident.  A preliminary Mal date  has been set for August 6  and 7.  by Stuart Burnside  The Royal Commission on  Health was in Sechelt, briefly,  Thursday to discuss the health  concerns of Sunshine Coasl  residents.  The commission, after advertising its intent to spend most of  Thursday holding public hearings���to fully review the concerns of Coastal residents���left  town shortly after one o'clock,  leaving many of the would-be  participants waiting outside the  locked doors of Rockwood.  According to a well-placed  source who wishes to remain  anonymous, many of those left  standing outside were elderly  citizens, "some of whom had,  literally, gone to great pains to  attend the public hearings."  When contacted by the Coast  News, Royal Commission  Councillor Paul Williamson  said that, despite the fact that  the commision had sent a conformation   of   its   Sechelt  schedule (Thursday, 9:30 am to  noon and 1:30 to 5 pm) out for  public release on February 15,  the commission felt its job had  been satisfactorily completed by  1 pm.  Williamson said he felt that  everything had been done that  was necessary regarding the  change from the advertised  times. "Perhaps we could have  done more advertising to announce the change in  schedule," he said, "but we  contacted everyone who had  made submissions to the commission to find out if they, in  fact, also wanted to make a verbal address. We based the  length of the hearings on their  responses."  Williamson noted that the  purpose of the hearings was to  discuss only those issues or  topics received by the commission in writing. It was not a  public forum for the voicing of  "random opinions".  However, according to the  February 15 news release received by the Coasl News, "the  general public is encouraged to  attend the hearings." Commission Chairman Judge Peter  Seaton is quoted as saying,  "This is an opportunity for people lo participate in the formation of health care policies."  One of those most put out by  the commission's actions was  Dr. Francis Konopasek of  Sechelt, who himself had sub-  milted a "brief to the Royal  Commission a month ago.  In it, Konopasek expressed  his concern regarding the lack  of medical services provided on  the Sunshine Coast for children.  He cited a "lack of an  ophthalmologist, audiologist,  speech therapist, physiologist,  psychotherapist for children,  and obstetrician."  Konopasek told the Coast  News about a premature baby  born on the Coast that died  shortly after birth, possibly due  Please turn to page 10  is House rescue effort 'bogged down'  by Rose Nicholson  Efforts to save the 'Old Doc  Inglis House' as a heritage  building may have temporarily  bogged down, but members of  the Gibsons Landing Heritage  Society (GLHS) are determined  to find a solution.  "There are lots of options,"  said Dianne Evans, "but we  need to talk to all the  principals."  The Heritage Society is looking for support from Gibsons  Council and have asked that  aldermen form a Heritage Advisory Committee as outlined in  the Municipal Act, using as a  suggested model a similar committee in Victoria. But so far  aldermen have declined to take  an active part in the preservation effort, maintaining that the  Heritage Society is the best  organization to deal with the  issue.  The historic house was built  in 1914 by pioneer Dr. Fred Inglis, who for many years was  the only doctor on the Coast.  Oldtimers remember his forays  on primitive dirt roads, by  horseback, and later by motorcycle and Model T and Model A  Fords, to bring medical help lo  early settlers.  For a time the house was  shared by J.S. Woodsworth,  founder of the CCF Party (now  the NDP), and his family. Bruce  Woodsworth, son of J.S.  Woodsworth, in an article in the  SunCoast Writers' Forge book  Our Sunshine Coast, says, "In  June of 1918 our family joined  the Inglis family to share the  large home...and we children  explored the wilderness and  beaches of Gower Point.  "...for us children,...Gibsons  Landing was a place of magic,"  added Grace Maclnnes (nee  Woodsworth).  "It's a major part of the  history of this town," said  Heritage Society member Phil  Gtulin. "It definitely bears  more than just casual interest."  When the house was recently  put up for sale by its present  owners, many people, par-  ticularly the members of the  Heritage Society, hoped to be  able to officially designate it as  a heritage house and preserve it  for the town.  "Heritage buildings are  things that don't come back,"  said Fred Inglis. "You can  always build another parking  lot. You've got lo get your  priorities straight."  At this point, neither the  town nor the GLHS have the  money to purchase the property. "We have neither the money  behind us, nor a proposal  before us," said Alderman  Margaret Morrison at a recent  council meeting.  Money is available from the  provincial Heritage Trust for  restoration of the building, but  not for purchase of the property. Heritage Society members  feel strongly that the present  owners should be fairly compensated for the property and  recognized for their efforts to  rescue the old home from a state  of disrepair.  "They took it from a state of  total disrepair and brought it  back," said Gaulin. "Of  anyone in the near past, they are  the ones most responsible for its  being in the condition it's in  now."  One of the options suggested  at a meeting of interested parties  last week was to move the house  to Holland Park and use it as a  neighbourhood house. Batyah  Fremes, a member of the Gibsons Neighbourhood Society  Steering Committee, said that  her group would like to see such  a house established in the town.  "There is a great need here for a  place that community groups  could use for a variety of purposes," she said.  But the idea of moving the  house is not acceptable to the  GLHS. "It loses all its heritage  value when you move it," said  Inglis.  "We're trying to come up  with something more concrete.  We'd like to talk with interested  parties���the owners, the prospective developers. Right now  it's hard to sort everything  out."  "There has to be flexibility  and the council has to be supportive of that," added Evans.  "Either you want to save your  heritage or you don't. We need  the town's support."  JJ Coast News, March 4,1991  EDITORIAL ��� OPINION  Fooling ourselves  Four years ago a far-ranging, entirely dispassionate,  study conducted by the Japanese offered a bleak assessment of this country's present status in the world community of nations.  We were, it appeared, a third world nation with a first  world standard of living. We bring this up at this time  not because of any desire to induce an orgy of public  self-flagellation but, partially at least, because the  Japanese study results have gained in credence during  the intervening four years.  For the second time in less than a decade we are hip  deep in a major recession and sinking more with every  passing tick of the Bay Street tape. Michael Wilson's  stiff-upper-bottom-line "bite the bullet" budget-  complete with its transparently nonsensical wage  restraints for prime minister and cabinet  ministers���might be easier to swallow if it cut as deeply  into corporate pockets as it does into public programs.  The great Canadian unwashed is told, with amazingly  cheeky self-serving smugness, that this budget eschews  any rise in the income tax���because people are already  struggling like so many force-fed geese to stomach the  GST. "Thank Goddawa for the GST! Re-elect  Dumrooney For Life!" is, we assume, the slogan we  tumble-governed Canucks should be taking to the  streets with.  But, as a third world country with a first world standard of living, what gives us the unmitigated nerve to  sign up for a round of military polo with more  economically sound players, and blow a billion or two  on our tournament expenses?  Instead of helping bomb Iraq's manufacturing base  back into the stone age, we should be rescuing our own  from a similar era of metaphorical regression and all too  actual neglect.  It is one thing to borrow money to feed, clothe, and  house one's citizens, yet another to fight a war of no  consequence to our own security on the if-come just to  prove a point.  What happened?  As late as last Thursday we spied craft, motoring and  under sail, plying their leisurely way across Halfmoon  Bay, among other locations on the coast. Shirt-sleeved  fishermen lolled in the fickle afternoon sun, more in  touch with the balmy weather than with their bait.  Then that great stage manager of the theatre of life  signalled a scene���and set���change, transforming early  spring back into late winter. Ah, well. All the world's a  stage and we are merely players.  But it would be nice if we had a chance to have the  appropriate costumes in our dressing rooms, ready and  waiting for just such sneaky curtain calls!  -from our files ���  We Remember When  5 YtAHS AUO  Sechelt merchants attended a presentation by consultant Patricia Baldwin on the feasibility of a revitaliza-  tion project for the downtown area.

After eight months on the  Coast, I have been publicly  branded as harbouring a  "drawbridge state of mind."  Because my accuser is steeped  like a tea bag in the culturaUnd  sociological pathology of the  peninsula, I take his insights  and observations more seriously  than most.  "You move here on a Friday  extolling the myriad virtues of  our little strip of rapidly-eroding  rural pleasantness, a smile on  your lips and a song in your  heart."  Right on! That's exactly  where I was at and coming  from���like a brush fire���back  in July of '90. But, steady, he's  not finished.  "Come Sunday, however,  you have decided that life on  your newly-discovered Sunshine  Coast would be perfect if only  no other living soul walking on  two legs was allowed to enter. If  only one could raise the drawbridge and ensure that things  would remain the same in  perpetuity."  If what my shrewd amigo is  saying feels tailormade, so be it.  If what he's diagnosing is the  dreaded DM (Drawbridge Mentality), then I've got it bad but it  sure feels Rood!  WELCOME TO THE SUNSHINE  COAST. TAKE A GOOD LOOK  AROUND. THEN GO HOME!  Now that's a bumper sticker I'd  slap onto the rear of my old  Mazda. In fact, I bet if I had ten  thousand of the suckers run off  tomorrow and sold them for a  looney a piece, I'd sell out in an  hour. Now maybe not everyone  who bought one would actually  put it on their vehicles, not  wanting to come right out and  admit how they felt, but they'd  buy one.  Let me try and put this sub  rosa issue into something  resembling a perspective. Last  May Denise and I spent two  days prowling around the  Coast, sniffin' out every known  waterfront hacienda within our  price range from Gibsons to  Garden Bay. Well, aside from  the sheer bucolic wonder of it  all, neighbours, what supplied  me with the greatest kick in the  head was something I simply  did not see.  Cars. Not traffic���cars. It  takes a certain, incalculable  number of vehicles to constitute  "traffic" and, on those sun-  kissed days in May, there were  so few vehicles traversing the  two-lane   ribbon   of  country  highway  called   101,  that  I  thought for a moment we'd  taken a wrong turn and wound  up entirely in the sticks.  WELCOME TO THE SUNSHINE  COAST. IF VOU CAN READ THIS  YOU'RE TOO CLOSE  FOR OUR COMFORT!  Now, eight months later, I  find myself inventing bumper  stickers as a way of sublimating  my desire to run for dictator  and making it 1000 per cent illegal to enter the Commonwealth of Sunshine Coast  Communities for a momenl  longer than it takes to spend all  one's tourist dinero. As for  emigration, that's easy. As  someone departs this vale of salt  water, wood, and one-traffic-  light towns���another winner of  the "Live On The Sunshine  Coast National Essay Contest"  gets to move in.  Look at it this way. Umpteen  eons ago when our ancestors  were out of the trees but just  barely up on their hind legs, no  apologies were made for shooing excess flies away from the  honey. It wasn't considered  "anti-social" to crack excess  skulls if the inhabitants of those  domes were trying to turn a  perfectly adequate ten-hominid  waterhole into a dried-up  twelve-hominid boneyard.  Where survival is at stake, and  survival can be expressed in  many different permutations,  then sharing must give way lest  everyone, or everything, perish.  Sounds brutal, sounds primitive, and it even strikes me as a  little...extreme. But try this.  People from an urban  waterhole, one fast approaching  Hong Kong density, glance  across Howe Sound and lick  their lifestyle-starved chops at  the Sunshine Coast. They move  here in a slowly-accelerating, inexorable stream for all the same  reasons that those already living  here came in the first place.  KEEP HEADING NORTH.  THE SUNSHINE COAST STARTS  AT POWELL RIVER.  But the more weary urban  nomads���as I was eight long,  long months ago���who pitch  their tents on the Coast, the less  the Coast remains what it was  the day before. The quality of  life that only three years ago  allowed one to virtually stroll  down the center line of the 101  from Earl's Cove to Langdale  now features bumper-to-  bumper piston engine snake  dances and behemoth truck  convoys straight out of Mad  Max.  So I'm a victim of "Drawbridge Mentality (DM)?" Fine  and dandy. You can't find a  cure without a solid diagnosis.  And I'd jolly well better come  up with a cure because, cousin,  what's causin' my ailment ain't  about to dry up and blow away.  I don't relish the infection, but  pretending I'm happy about  what's happening to the Coast  is hardly therapeutic,- either.  WELCOME TO THE  SUNSHINE COAST.  SETTLE DOWN. BE HAPPY.  JUST DON'T TELL ANYONE BACK  HOME WHERE YOU ARE...  In A Nutshell  t i  Law is force", claims Phil  by S. Nutter  Some years ago a young  brother of mine started a course  at Algonquin College in Ottawa  called 'Law for the Layman'.  He had been drawn to Ottawa from Winnipeg in the first  place to be the legal advisor to  the Canadian Pensions Board.  He had been involved with the  fact that the Canadian Legion  at that time had 10 lawyers full-  time to press cases with the Pensions Board and I guess he felt  there was a job there to be done.  This particular brother,  however, is really just not a civil  servant type. Moreover he  found that the pensions board  was composed, at that time, of  superannuated MPs who kept  getting re-elected but were  thought not of the calibre for  any kind of cabinet post. Difficult to imagine perhaps when  you think of some of those who  were.  Rather than just sit back in  their plummy chairs, however,  he found that these perennially  returned old war-horses were  endlessly in and out of his office  with fiddly and fuddly and frequently fancied problems, he  thought;   interrupting   the  smooth flow of business and exerting an intolerable strain on  his patience. And patience I  would say is not this brother's  shining virtue.  Then he got ding'd by a  minister (Judy LaMarsh) in a  widely circulated letter. He had  gone down to her bailiwick  (Niagara) to investigate the fact  that sundry continuing pensioners had been dead for many  years. She wrote a bad-  tempered, 1 would say churlish,  letter laying it down that civil  servants were not to go into the  bailiwicks of ministers of the  Crown without first obtaining  permission. She was quite  wrong of course, and he quite  other exacerbations of the job  and after a while he resigned,  and after a while he resigned.  Being only at the Manitoba  Bar he could not practice in Ontario, but his wife by this time  was superintendent of music for  the school district and loved the  job; and the kids were in high  school, and involved in all kinds  of stuff, and liked that too; he  decided to look for something  to do and stay around for a  while.  Hence the idea for the course  in law for the layman. He had  noticed after all, that many in  government were fuzzy, to say  the least, about the law. He  made a deal with the president  of Algonquin College (one of  the then new community colleges). Phil would provide the  course, and the college would  advertise and provide the space,  and they would split the fees.  The response surprised them  all. So many signed up in the  first couple of weeks that they  had to give him the main theatre  for his lectures, and it stayed  like that for as long as he carried it on. I would be in Ottawa  from time to time in those days  and got in to see an early one of  these performances.  Because performances they  were. The stage held just a large  blackboard on a couple of  easels and a reading stand. On  the dot of the hour Phil would  charge on stage (he's still a bit  of a charger), turn his back on  the company, and write in big  letters on the board the continuing theme of the whole of these  lectures: LAW IS FORCE.  I have to say that this theme  surprised me, and clearly it surprised and puzzled and maybe  even shocked a good number of  his students, even those among  them, and they were a good  many, who belonged to the  RCMP. We get used to going  along with a whole idea that law  is the alternative to force, that  law is in fact our bulwark  against force.  'Law is Force' is of course  true. Not only in the sense that  many of our most cherished  laws were only made possible  through revolutions and wars  over hundreds of years; but in  the sense that any law about  anything (no smoking for example) is an act of imposition  against certain particular  members of the society, and  that is force.  But what has all this to do  with the war in the desert you  ask. Not that much maybe. But  there were certainly voices raised, on the screens and in the  streets, which led you to suppose that there were people out  there, maybe people busily  engaged in devising new laws to  run the land, who really believed that the use of force was not  just something to be avoided,  but actually something unthinkable 'in our time'. And  that would be just plain sentimental. And sentimentality is  bad for the brain.  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper  . Coast News, March 4,1991  LETTERS  Some found meeting a 'spectacle'  Editor:  I am writing to comment on  the meeting held by some concerned Crowe Road residents at  Roberts Creek Hall on Wednesday, February 13. Subsequent  reports listed attendance at approximately 250 who enthusiastically supported the call  to ban clearcut logging on the  slopes of Elphinstone Mountain.  While the majority of those  in attendance were in favour of  the public statement of position  given by Donna Shugar, at least  ,Dnc-lhird of the audience was  made up of residents who do  not agree. In fact, many of us  find such well-rehearsed spectacles very concerning.  Much was made of the lack  of official representation by the  Ministry of Forests. Considering the events leading up to the  meeting, and the fact that they  are continually being protrayed  as evil perpetrators of some  sinister conspiracy against the  environment, it is no wonder  that they declined to set  themselves up as targets for  abuse.  The ministry personnel have  a wide range of responsibilities,  one of which is to create a  forum for public input relating  to forest land management.  They are open for business five  days a week, and receive a lot of  input from a wide range of  "concerned  citizens".   The  public forum, as we witnessed  in Roberts Creek, was set up  only to discredit their efforts.  The issue of clearcut logging  is very important; the economic  future of the Sunshine Coast  will depend heavily on which  route we choose to follow. The  meeting at Roberts Creek Hall  forced the issue to a political  level. Any attempt by a special  interest group to use pressure  tactics to impose their agenda is  an attempt to bypass the  democratic process. There are  many more facts and opinions  to be tabled for public discussion before we decide which is  the best option for all the  residents of the Sunshine Coast.  Gordon Todd  Liberals 'adrift, going nowhere'  Editor:  Pintles and gudgeons?  Anyone with the sea in mind  knows that these little gizmos  secure the tiller or rudder to the  sea boat and, without the tiller,  the boat is in irons, which is  where the Liberal Party finds  itself these past six years.  Since Trudeau left the helm,  we have suffered the likes of a  loser Turner, and now, since the  party always alternates its  leaders between English and  French speaking Canadians, we  look to the unwinning Chretien  with the party deeply divided.  All the headquarters office  does over the past number of  years, is send out pleas for  funds, usually stuffed with a  form letter from some of the old  crew: Senator Molgat of  Manitoba; Herb Gray, the  leader of the opposition until  Chretien gets his seat in Commons; and the most recent  onslaught from the Honourable  Don Johnston who begs for  funds like he plays the piano���  with a flair.  The party is broke and has a  debt of four million plus, a party rudderless, divided and  unable to attract members or  funds. It is an endangered  species.  After 35 years active in the  party, I, like Trudeau, retired at  the acceptable age of 65, and  the onslaught of circular letters  leave me cold. It would be  cheaper indeed to go out and  buy a leader and the debt would  vanish. Even the unwashed  know that given the right man  or woman the funds roll in,  leaving the policy never to be  implement.  Some years ago, shortly after  Turner's so-called  "comeback", they came out  with the "brick" fund. Buy a  brick for the new headquarters  in Ottawa for $100. The said  brick, with your name on it,��  would be trowelled into the  main lobby. This went over like  a ton of bricks, and, in Don  Johnston's recent letter, he  reveals that the names of donors  would be placed in the conference room alongside former  prime ministers as they had lost  control of the building.  Even the casual observer  knows what that means; the  bank has taken over, and one  suspects that is why the party  moguls are out trying to sell  Liberal visa cards with the  Royal Bank donating a portion  of each application to the  Liberal Party.  The sum and substance of all  this is the party is adrift, going  nowhere, no pintles and  gudgeons, rudderless and endangered to the point that I  shall not live long enough to see  see another Liberal government  in Ottawa.  Dick Kennett  Inglis house's value, beauty cited  Editor:  I would like to add my voice  to John Burnside's enlightening  story of the old Inglis House, in  his Musings column. The  historic Value, and yes, beauty  of that old house, that has stood  like a lighthouse in the midst of  our community should not be  demolished, or sold to the  highest bidder. John's bottom  line said it all, "If we let the  treasures of the past slip away  undefended, we will diminish  ourselves more than we know."  The last time I wrote a letter  to the Vancouver Sun, it concerned the proposed demolition  of Christ Church Cathedral.  There was a bitter dispute going  on about its worth; even the  bishop thought that the value of  the land might benefit the  church as a whole.  I'm happy to say that the  people won out, and the church  is still there. That little corner of  the West End of Vancouver had  been saved, with the green lawn,  and timely messages of the  Good Book for all to see. In a  steel, concrete and plastic society we needed that.

During the early 50's, I built a  house on North.Fletcher Road  in Gibsons', and one night after  working hard I became ill. We  didn't have a phone at the time,  and my wife, after taking a  reading of 104 degrees, ran  down to the Inglis house and  got Dr. Hugh Inglis.  It   turned   out   I   had  pneumonia. I have always felt  ne saved my life. If one stops to  think, how many lives did those  Inglis doctors save? And how  many souls did J.S.  Woodsworth save and give  hope to for a future Canada  from a sick society as it was  then known. Is this house with  such a memorable past not  worth restoring to its original  state?

It is good to know that our  services to the community in  general have been recognized in  a practical manner like this.  You can rest assured that the  money will be well spent.  Communication, or perhaps I  should say lack of communication, has been a major problem  since our formation about 10  years ago. The problem remains  but this money will help us to  purchase radios and associated  equipment.  Thanks again.

COLLINS SPEAKS  I had the pleasure of being invited to lunch with The  Honorable Mary Collins on  February 20 at the Coast Plaza  by Stanley Park. I came by this  invitation through DAWN of  B.C. and was seated two places  from the MP at the head table.  She spoke to us as Minister  Responsible for the Status of  Women and the Minister of  State for Seniors. One hundred  and thirty-six million dollars has  been put aside for Canadians to  work together to eliminate  family violence from our society  over a four year period.  The federal strategy will involve six key elements to address these goals: increasing  public awareness about family  violence and changing attitudes;  strengthening the federal legal  framework; providing prevention, protection and treatment  services to Indians on reserves;  strengthening family violence intervention and treatment services, especially for high risk  populations; increasing the  availability of housing for victims; and enchancing national  information exchange and coordination.  The Minister related that in  Canada, the greatest obstacle to  overcome in addressing family  violence continues to be one of  attitude. We can change laws in  a matter of months, but to  change attitudes, values and  behaviour requires years���even  generations.  EASTER SEALS  February seemed like forever,  but March is here and now we  plan for the Easter Sale and Tea  on Saturday, March 23. There  are busy hands at crafts and  those of you that create at  home. There will be an executive meeting at 10 am on  March 5.  all members for this one, and if  you have not yet taken out  membership, you may do so at  the door prior to the meeting. It  is urgent that you attend, as  your vote is required to give  your executive the power to  spend money on renovations to  the kitchen, a need which is long  overdue.  By the way, if your kid just  happened to bring home a  Canadian flag recently, you  should see to it that this flag is  returned from whence it came,  namely, the Welcome Beach  Hall. This flag was not easy to  remove. The guy lines had to be  cut and the pole ascended. This  kind of vandalism is so stupid,  and one wonders if parents have  any idea of what their kids are  up to. Hard earned funds will  have to be used to replace the  flag which was certainly not  cheap.  MANURE SALE  The only annual fund-raising  event undertaken by the Halfmoon Bay Cubs is about to take  place soon. The boys bag and  sell mushroom manure on  Southwood Road from 10 am  until 4 pm on March 16 and 17.  It might be wise to place your  order now by calling Don at  885-5208 to make sure that your  order can be met. At the same  time you will be helping towards  funds for cub camps etc.  Since last week's mention of  the re-location of the  caretaker's quarters at Coopers  Green, many people have been  expressing concern regarding  sewage disposal from both the  quarters and from the toilets at  Coopers Green Hall.  Parks Superintendent Steve  Alexander has assured this columnist that septic tanks are in  place for both buildings, and  that the standards are even  higher than those demanded by  the Health Department. Give  Steve a call at the SCRD and he  can provide all the technical  details.  The best news we've had this  week is that the killing has finally stopped in the Gulf.

The auxiliary operates the showcase of  knitted goods at the clinic, and  also operates the Bargain Barn  in Madeira Park. All their proceeds go to improve facilities at  the clinic. In 1990, a fax  machine and diabetic testing  equipment were installed.  Thousands of dollars have been  spent throughout the years since  the clinic was first built.  With more of the public using  the clinic, the need for equipment grows as does the need for  more members to keep the auxiliary active. There are only  about 10 dedicated members  left to carry the load. A  treasurer is urgently required as  is anyone who could spare a little bit of time towards a great  cause.

It simply  does not compute, especially  after the last few weeks of  balmy, bright sunshine we were  able to enjoy.  1 bet more than a few see-  were sown only to be met by  that big old Arctic front. No  sooner did the full moon drop  into the western horizon than  black clouds of inclement  weather began their march  across the skies of the still sleeping residents of Egmont.  For me, it was a day to  remember. As anyone with even  a minimal amount of hearing  was aware, our resident crew of  treeplanters was being flown in  and out of downtown Egmont  by helicopter. When we flew up  on Thursday morning, it was  still reasonably calm, but, by  afternoon, a good wind was  howling down both Jervis and  Sechelt Inlets.  Strong gusts of wind made it  nearly impossible for the pilot  to get his helicopter in to get us  off the mountain. There were  many tense moments as, three  by three, we were precariously  loaded into a machine literally  being thrown around in the  wind. Thanks to the very competent pilot for delivering us  safely back to home base.  Meanwhile, I'm happy to  report that we have peppered  those hills with plenty of  healthy, hearty young cedar and  fir seedlings which will become  our children's forest.  recuperating now at home, after  her short stay in St. Mary's.

GARRETT  CONSTRUCTION LTD.  P.O. Bo�� 288, Sechelt, BC VON SAO ��� 886-8960  by Fran Burnside  The next time you make an  evening dash to the 'corner  store' for that necessary item  you've just run out of or  forgot to buy, think about  this: what if there were no  local stores. What if you had  to go to Vancouver for  everything you need.  Now admittedly that is an  unlikely scenario. But local  businesses respond to  customer need and utilization.  They grow and increase their  stock and services according to  demand, and conversely they  wither and close when they are  under-used. It's the classic  case of "use 'em or lose 'em".  Local merchants are well  aware of the competition they  face from Vancouver stores  ���and they're more than willing  to meet it head-on if given the  chance. Although ferry and  transportation costs are a local  factor, lower coast overheads  balance the equation and  many local shops are adamant  about the fact that they meet  or  beat   Vancouver   prices.  They'd like you to give them a  chance and see what they've  got to offer before you go into  the  'big smoke'  and  buy.  You'll probably be surprised  at both the prices and the  selection.  The advantages to the consumer of shopping locally go  far beyond the obvious savings  of time, gas and ferry fare.  Local businesses support a  .. wide number of non-business  related community activities.  Think of all the places  where you see or read business  names. Your son's or  daughter's - or your own  -baseball or hockey uniform  has a sponsor's name on the  back, and that sponsor bought  those uniforms.   When your  club has its awards night or  fund-raising raffle, all the  trophies and prizes have been  donated by generous local  business people. Whenever a  non-profit group requires extra funding or assistance,  businesses are the first asked  'ttTmake a contribution, and  most of them could cover their  walls with the hand-lettered  "Appreciation Certificates"  they've received to recognize  their efforts.  Bin getting down to the real  brass tacks, it's in the general  economic health of the Sunshine Coast community that  local  businesses make  their  biggest contribution. They  create jobs. They pay full-  time, year-round wages which  support   local   families   and  enable them to live here. They  provide summer jobs for  students so they can stay home  and earn money to continue  their studies.  And they pay local taxes  and contribute to local services, thus helping to upgrade  the general quality of life for  all of us. The larger the local  tax base, the better the services  we receive, and ihe more of  those "extras" like recreational facilities the community  can afford.  Spending your dollars  where you live is like investing  in yourself. The money comes  back to you in numerous different ways. Local spending  creates what is called "the  multiplier effect", wherein  each dollar does the work of  live or six as it circulates  through the community, being  spent again and again for different products and services,  becoming the vital "cash  flow" which keeps businesses  healthy and growing. The  more cash flow a business has,  ihe more it can increase its  slock and provide wider .selection and service, a side effect  of which is oflcn hiring more  staff, which means more people working and having money  to spend, supporting more  local businesses, which pay  more local  taxes  and  con  tribute more to ihe community, etc., so the circle expands  and the community's  economic health keeps getting  better and better.  Competitive prices are just  one of the advantages of dealing with Ihe shop down the  street. When you want service  or repairs, your local business  is close by, right there when  you need ii. The local service  man can come to you; you  don't have to lake your  washer lo him. And he's your  neighbour. He knows his  reputation rests with what you  tell your - and his-friends  about his work. He can't afford in a small community to  have dissatisfied customers, so  he'll give you service above'  and beyond what you'd get  from an impersonal 'big city'  company as just another  anonymous customer. He  needs and wants you to come  back to him ihe next time, and  he'll give you the kind of work  which will make you do so.  Besides, he wants lo be able to  look you in the eye and get a  smile back the next time he  meets you on the golf course  or al the Scout rally.  Shop locally and support  local businesses. If you want  them to be ihere with what  you need when you need it,  use their services regularly so  you'll have the choice.  7 POUNDS  of  POWER  SupernoteSX-16  40 Meg.

Coast News, March 4,1991  Qas project on target  Planning and construction of  local natural gas distribution  systems are on schedule following B.C. Utilities Commission  approval of an Interim  Operating Agreement between  Centra Gas and 19 Vancouver  Island and Sunshine Coast  municipalities.  The Commission approved  the agreement after a three-day  public hearing in Victoria in  January. Included in the agreement are the terms and conditions under which the company  will construct, operate and  maintain its distribution  facilities in each community.  "The Commission's early approval helps keep our project on  target," said Centra Gas President Robert O'Shaughnessy.  "With the continued cooperation of each municipality we are  confident that our very tight  schedules can be maintained."  During the public hearing,  the municipalities described to  the Commission the impaci thai  the construction program could  have on local administration.  Centra Gas has agreed to  schedule its activities in a manner that will facilitate smooth  approvals.  "We will be working closely  with officials in each community to help them accommodate  the short-term incremental  workload generated by our project."  O'Shaughnessy said the Interim Operating Agreement is a  good document that will provide the base for the Final  Agreement with the municipalities. He said company officials  are immediately beginning work  with each municipality to  develop the final contract.  "We consider this the beginning of a long and strong partnership with each community,"  said O'Shaughnessy.  Centra Gas is spending $200  million to construct its local  distribution systems. The company expects to pay municipalities more than $29 million in  local taxes during the first 10  years of operation.  Although most of his concerns regarding the Interim  Operating Agreement have been  answered, Gibsons' Mayor Eric  Small told the Coast News "I'm  satisfied...that the agreement  cannot now simply be imposed.  If negotiations (between the gas  company and the municipalities) fail, (everything) goes  back to the B.C. Utilities Corn-  Small expressed disappointment that nil municipality will  not be receiving gas service until  September of 1992. "Gibsons  will be the second-last (of the 19  municipalities) to be provided  with gas," Small said, adding  that the company's "excuse"  for this centered around  "...having to bridge several  creeks to get the gas to  Gibsons." Apparently this  obstacle could involve a major  set back in terms of time,  depending on just how quickly  this phase of the operation is  put into action.  Continued from page 1  in part to the lack of an on-duty  obstetrician on the Coast. As it  turned out, an obstetrician had  to be hydrofoiled from  Nanaimo to Davis Bay where  there were also problems docking.  Konopasek said that when he  arrived at Rockwood sometime  before 1:30 pm to answer  queries the commission might  raise about riis submission, he  found that the doors were locked. Managing to locate a commissioner, Dr. Konopasek was  "shocked" to discover that the  commission was "unaware of  his submission".  The doctor later found out,  by contacting commission headquarters, that while his brief  had been  reviewed by staff  Twenty-four students at Gibsons Elementary participated la this year's Heritage Week Photo and  Story Contest. Six entries were chosen and forwarded to Victoria to compete In provincial Judging.  ���Joei JoaniloM photo  researchers, the actual members  of the commission were  unaware of its existence.  As it turned out, Konopasek  wound up driving the commissioner he had located to the airport, "to get a chance to talk to  him about my brief."  The doctor later learned that  his brief would be given to all  members of the commission  and that they would "be in  touch".  Konopasek told the Coast  News that, while speaking to  Victoria, he discovered that of  the 100 or so submissions made  by parties on the Sunshine  Coast, only 12 were discussed  Thursday in Sechelt.  While he was submitting his  brief and working on behalf of  "all the children on the Coast,"  Dr. Konopasek readily notes  that he has three handicapped  children "of my own" and that  this fact has served as a  motivating factor in his efforts.

LETTERS  Nature 'temple' needed  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication.  Dear Peggy Connor and Directors of the Regional District:  As a boy, living in Gibson's  Landing, growing from three to  six years in age, the announcement that the Woodsworth and  Inglis families (total 16) were  going on a picnic to Shepherd's  Rock (later renamed Gospel  Rock) brought joyous shouts.  We anticipated craggy fir trees  with bald eagles perched atop,  fishermen's 'one-lunger' boats  far down below near Salmon  Rock with the occasional seal's  head visible, mysterious red-  barked arbutus trees, granite  rock lookouts, and in the  spring, wild purple violets and  orange tiger lilies.  As a young man teaching  high school in what is now the  School Supply Annex, 1 often  wandered off after school to  find solace from the day's problems, and to return refreshed  ���especially when my circuit included the trails around Gospel  Rock.  Local residents in 1991 badly  need such a beautiful temple for  communicating with nature.  Somewhat brashly, I strongly  recommend that the Regional  District, perhaps with financial  help from the provincial  government, from Gibsons  Council and citizens in general,  take bold steps to purchase the  entire Gospel Rock as a park, to  have as a practical living monument for all people, in perpetuity-  Bruce Woodsworth, P. Eng.  Positive feedback  Editor:  It's always nice to read a  newspaper that employs diverse  columnists such as Messrs.  Burnside and Nutter, an editor  that paraphrases Bob Dylan and  also doesn't devote the better  part of a page to pseudo-news,  such as a winning real estate  agent.  Kudos to y'all.

Editor:  Hyak, acquired from Garden  Bay in 1968, was an ambassador for his species. Approximately 10 million visitors  saw him in his 23 years here,  were touched by his presence  and left with a great awareness  of killer whales.  It can be argued that killer  whales can be seen in the wild.  There is a growing whale watching industry and certainly the  more urbanized our society  becomes the greater is our need  to be in touch with animals. A  vitally practical point is the  sheer number of people needing  education. Can you imagine  close to one million people annually whale watching in Rob-  son Bight, as that is the number  that learn about whales at the  Vancouver Aquarium. There is  no doubt the whales would  leave the area.  The killer whales at the Vancouver Aquarium receive the  very best of care. The 120 tons  of herring, salmon, sole and  pollock they eat annually are of  premium quality. The food is  fished at a particular time of  year and is done so under a  quality control contract to ensure the whales' nutritional  needs. Vitamins a are added  daily. The public presentations  involving the whales are critical  for the whales' stimulation and  exercise.  In 1983 Hyak became very ill.  With three experienced marine  mammal veterinarians, extensive medical and technical support from a local hospital and  Hyak's masters don't  understand reactions  six months of extensive care,  Hyak pulled through. Dr. Dick  Hooper, a St. Paul's Hospital  cardiologist, said, "Few people  in BC received the quality of  medical attention given to Hyak  during his illness." Although  Hyak recovered we were never  able to fully diagnose the  specific area of infection.  In January of this year, when  Hyak again became ill, we  brought all medical and  technical resources to bear.  With our present veterinarian  and our many associates, we  worked on a medical program  for Hyak, now an older whale  with a much reduced immune  system, indicative of all older  animals, including humans.  On Saturday, February 16,  when he suddenly relapsed and  died at 3 pm, it was an extreme  emotional shock to all of us.  We are professionals here  and we knew we had to act  quickly if we were to find the  cause for Hyak's death. His life  had served great purpose and so  too would his death. An immediate post mortem results in  the most accurate and relevant  clinical picture for a  pathologist. We quickly  organized a crane and truck to  remove Hyak's body from the  pool and take it to a barge  where the post mortem would  be performed.  The post mortem started at 9  pm and was completed by 4 am,  Sunday, February 17. During  the post mortem it is necessary  to remove some sections of skin  and blubber to expose the internal organs for examination. We  wanted Hyak to have a burial at  sea with a few of the trainers  present. His body was wrapped  in a canvas sling, enclosing the  pieces that had been removed  for the post mortem. The sling  was tied closed with rope and  weighted. Around noon Sunday  the body was taken to a 200  fathom area of the Strait of  Georgia and put overboard for  a respectful burial.  Some of the portions of skin  and blubber floated free of the  canvas wrapping. As you are  aware,   due   to   a   strong  southeasterly they floated to  shore in Sechelt. Now this  aspect has completely overshadowed everything else. This  was a truly unfortunate circumstance and one which is getting far more attention than is  warranted.  Despite the desperate needs  of some to expose a perceived  "cover up", 1 hope you and  your readers now understand  why the autopsy was performed  immediately and the impeccable  credentials of those involved.  We do not understand the  value of focusing so much attention on the events which occurred in Sechelt over the past  week. In fact, we feel a strong  responsibility to maintain as  much dignity, truth and discretion befitting the loss of an old  friend���especially one who had  touched so many. As a group of  scientists, educators and conservationists we cannot determine  what contribution to our  knowledge of whales is served  by so focusing on some pieces  of blubber on the beach.  K.

Coast News, March 4,1991  Tim Turner carries the word  Howe Sound lectures begin  ��  >  by Rose Nicholson  r For most Sunshine Coast  residents, Howe Sound is that  body of water they half-  consciously sail across when  making their way by ferry to  , and from Horseshoe Bay. If  they notice anything, it is the  ferry's wake, giving little or no  thought to Howe Sound as a living entity.  But Tim Turner has a much  broader concept. He sees Howe  Sound as a complex ecological  system. One with an intricate  underwater terrain of great  depths, shallow ridges, and little  known patterns of tidal currents. And he expands this concept even further to include the  ; whole drainage system of the  watershed that feeds into the  Sound, a huge area that takes in  "the Squamish Valley to beyond  -Whistler.  I In an interview with the  Coast News in his Gibsons  home that overlooks, fittingly  ;enough, Howe Sound, Turner  explains that the area is a typical  representation of southern  coastal BC, with a geological  'framework that includes recent  Volcanic centres and high  Seismic risk, steep slopes, slides  )nd mountain streams. The  ecosystem is affected by communities, pulp mills, a chemical  plant, road and rail links, past  hiining activity, forest  Harvesting and a major port.  And Howe Sound itself supports an important fisheries industry and has significant  recreational potential.  - This fall there will be a major  scientific conference on Bowen  Island to study the area. The  four day conference will be attended by 50 to 60 top scientists  from all across North America,  members of federal and provincial ministries, and industry  representatives who will attempt  to bring together all the information already known about  this area, and identify the areas  that still need to be studied.  Backed by the federal departments of Fisheries and Oceans,  Environment Canada and  Geological Survey Canada, Tim  Turner will be acting as an "advance man" on this project,  presenting to schools and the  public a series of information  Tim Turner previews the underwater model of Howe Sound and  the large scale map of the watershed that he will be using in his  presentations to local audiences. See story.   ���Rote Nicholson photo  lectures in Gibsons and the  other communities in the watershed.  "We are looking at the  natural system and how humans  influence it, and what the future  holds for the humans who live  in this drainage system," said  Turner.  "We're going to have to do  better than we're doing now so  that our future is sustainable, so  that the economic development  within this drainage system is  sustainable.  "The major theme of the  technical conference is, what do  we know, and what do we not  know? Where there are big gaps  in our knowledge, let's develop  some research projects that will  Proposed  SILVICULTURE  PRESCRIPTION  Notice of pre-harvest silviculture prescription, pursuant to Section 3 of the silviculture regulations.

The purpose of the educational  program in the schools is to  heighten the students'  understanding and awareness,  and perhaps that familiarity will  breed a little concern, a heightened sense of responsibility.  They will want to know more,  and that's when the second  phase of the project will happen."  For Turner, an integral part  of this "second phase" would  be an active involvement of  students in research projects  that would add to the body of.  knowledge of Howe Sound and  its watershed. He suggests  things like an 'adopt-a-beach''  program where students would  monitor the living organisms on  the beaches to find out what  changes occur from year to  year. "You couldn't hire a  research consultant at $50,000 a  year to do that, but it would be  a great project for a school.  "Very little environmental.  science information is available  on a local level, and that's what  makes kids excited, when they  can relate to what's going on at  home."

Mar. 9   ��� 10:30 am  Location  South Coast  Ford Sales  Wharf Rti    Sechell  Trans Pacific Auction  [(>i)4i852-3747  At least one school body has  already been sparked by the  magic of Turner's infectious enthusiasm. For the rest of the  school year, students and  teachers at Langdale Elementary will be focusing their attention on a variety of projects  centered around the study of  Howe Sound. He will be giving  his first presentation at that  school on March 5, followed by  one at Gibsons Elementary (on  March 6), Elphinstone Secondary, and a public lecture at  Langdale school on March 12 at  7:30 pm. Following that will be  presentations at over 12 schools  from Horseshoe Bay to  Whistler.  When asked what got him  started on his 'crusade', Turner  talked about his eight years experience as a high school  teacher of earth sciences and  geography but, more significantly, he expressed his ideas  about individual responsibility.  As an avid sea kayaker and  hiker, he saw that, "the writing  on the wall is so legible now. I  want to take this on as my own  involvement, my own way of  assisting in turning our society  around.  "I have a strong belief that  individuals make a difference.  I've had sufficient contact with  individuals who have made a  difference, who have really impressed on me the need to stick  your neck out and not wait till  ihe next guy makes a move. The  idea is to just get started and the  thing will begin to develop a  momentum of its own.  "It's happening everywhere  ���in government, in industry.  Environment Canada is going  forward in ways it never  thought it would, and it's all a  function of individual initiative.  "One of the important things  that needs to come out of this is  the concept of questions.  Science is a loosely held set of  facts that have big holes. What  we're attempting to do is have  people recognize that the experts don't know much, and we  need to know more. Scientific  research is imperative so that we  are clear as to the impact we're  having, and some of the ways in  which we can mitigate that impact. ,,,,  ,  "I don't want this to be just  an isolated event. The question  has to be 'how do we take this  further?'  "That's the biggest challenge  for me."  a BACK!

It seems  that gardening is one of the  growth industries of the decade,  which speaks for itself in this  busy modernistic and computerized age.  It is therapeutic for the mind,  body and soul. It has displays of  Nature's artistic beauty, is productive, can be relaxing, gives  satisfaction, and we are always  learning, no matter what age we  are.  The weather pattern, with  changes in temperature, high  winds and even snow, can cause  damage to trunks, branches and  shrubs and can uproot some of  our trees.  We must begin repairs now to  fend off diseases and insects  which attack the cambium layer  just under the bark, which is  responsible for the protection of  the stems and new growth.  Splints can give stability to  broken limbs, and they will heal  just like our bones.

BLUE HERON INN  As we arrive at the Blue Heron Inn, we decide to ponder a while to enjoy Ihe view of Porpoise  Bay on a lovely early spring evening. Entering the dining room, we are greeted by our charming  hostess, Heather, who has a table by the window reserved for us. There is gentle Moxart music  tastefully playing in the background as we study the menu.  Menu studying here is quite a challenge as each item it so tempting. Fresh from the ocean we are  offered red snapper, Sechelt Inlet Dungeness crab, Atlantic lobster, salmon wilh oriental black  bean sauce, Grilled oysters from local farms, smoked black Alaska cod and tiger prawns and  chicken satay. Those who prefer meat are offered lamb Salisbury, veal Parmesan, chicken, pork  tenderloin and rack of lamb Dijonnaise.  After much consideration my husband decided on the tiger prawns and chicken, while my choice  was the smoked Alaska cod. Neither of us regretted our choices. Our meals started off with  delicious beef, lamb and beef vegetable soup served with a loaf of warm french bread. The tiger  prawns and chicken came with Indonesian rice, lots of spices but nothing harsh or too hot, fresh  carrots, broccoli, cantelope, pineapple, fried bananas, strawberry and a garnish of parsley. My  husband was in complete ecstacy as he tackled this more than ample plate of perfectly cooked fare.  He mumbled his pleasure with each mouthfull.  There was a duet of satisfied mumbling as I sampled the generous serving of the smoked black  Alaska cod which came with new potato and lots of fresh vegetables. The cod was steamed just  right which made the distinctive flavour a truly mouth-watering experience.  By the time we had devoured our main course there was no room for the cheesecake which was  offered for dessert. Maybe next time. There most certainly will be a next time, and several next  times, because we simply must try each and every item on this wonderful menu.

Coast News, March 4,1991  imhtamMi  1FE-LOC  Rolling through the Rockies  by Peter Trower  f Banff, Alberta���with , its  " stately old buildings and  breathtaking mountain setting���has justly been called one  of the most beautiful (Owns in  North America. I remember it  vaguely from a trip through the  Rockies as an English evacuee  in 1940. It has lost none of its  unique charm. Al this point in  lime���over 40 years later���it  seems to have become a major  gathering-ground for members  of the counter-culture. Longhaired types with rucksacks and  guitars are everywhere, thronging the sidewalks in frayed jeans  and jackets. Strident rock music  drifts from cafes. It is like a last  sland of the fading 'Love Generation'.  Perhaps ihis influx of aging  hippies has brought the price  down. In any event, ihey prove  -���Surprisingly reasonable. Wc  Yinrj a decent-enough room in  '.' an old red brick hotel and have  '.' a leisurely supper.  i'  *'  ','���   During the nighl, the murky  clouds disperse. We wake to  And clear skies and sunlight  gilding the snow-crested battlements of the mountains. We  could not have hoped for a  more salubrious day lo make  our northern run through the  Rockies. Exhilarated, we set  out.  Yvonne has told me lo expect  some staggering scenery. I confess I am a bit skeptical. After  all, I've spent a good part of my  life working among mountains.  But nothing has prepared me  for the awesome reality of Ihe  Rockies.  This keypoinl of our trip  begins a bit inauspiciously. We  pass Casllc Mountain���once inaptly named Mount Eisenhower���a ragged fortress-like  massif of bare rock looming to  our right. Il is certainly impressive but not a patch on what  is to come. Wc slop for coffee  beside a small alpine lake���then  push on. Suddenly we turn a  corner and the mountains begin  lo reveal themselves in a succession of mind-boggling marvels.  Impossible Rockies  explode around us  wind-fretted escarpments  buckle up into blue  cloud-flagged primordial  bare benl teeth of the world  snow spit lied  gnaw the blank sky  Each twist of Ihe highway  pits us against fresh vistas  trees slorm up from manless  valleys  lo iliin and fail against  granite  the peaks, the peaks,  the peaks  god thrones���goblin castles  grotesque formations jutting  starkly  like ruins on a dead planet  Only a fool or a blind man  could fail to gasp in their  presence  Ihe mule fact of iheir  vastness  the majesty oflheir  shambling march  Ihey mammoth up  crescendoes of slone  a spectacle beggaring words  as i wo small ant things  scuttle by  drunk on the pure wine  of wonder  I am genuinely spellbound by  the unfolding panorama���as  Yvonne knew full well I would  be. The unbelievable rock sculptures hit me like body blows,  one after another. It is as  though each giddy mountain  scarp is striving to outdo the  one before it. It is so astounding  that both or us are reduced to  helpless���almost hysterical  ���laughter. There is no other  way to react. Some things arc  simply too overpowering for rational response. We make frequent stops to take  photographs.  Spectacle follows spectacle.  We pass an amazing series of  cliffs called the Weeping Wall.  Dozens of waterfalls gush like  copious tears down rocky  cheeks. Bui if the crags are crying they are surely crying for  joy. This is Nature in its wildest  guise, untamed and totally  magnificent.  to be continued...

It was reported  to be a good bonspiel and all the  ladies had a good time. A lot of  teams have signed up for a  return engagement next year.  Congratulations to the club  ladies for all the A event winners. Diane Johnson won the A  and Nora Solinsky came in second. A North Shore team  came in third, but another local  team, the Skytte team, came in  fourth so the locals did really  well in the A event. Well done  girlsl  The B event winners were all  from outside with the Myrah  team taking the honours from  the Slattery rink. C event was  won by the Nahnybida team  who beat out the Metcalfe team.  The consolation round saw the  local Reitze team take third  place.  We would like to extend a  special thanks to Ron Baba who  has prepared such excellent  meals for the ladies' bonspiel  for so many years.  Elaine Tattrie and her ladies  team did a wonderful job of  decorating the club in an old  west theme.  We have a little more strategy  for you this week. When you  are determining a strategy to use  in a game, it is a good idea to  know your opponent. If your  opponent is unknown to you,  then it is best to start conservatively with a knockout style  of play. After a few ends, the  style of your opponent will unfold and you cart judge what is  the best style to use as  coumerplay,  Once you know your opponent's style of play, then it is  possible to counteract. If the  other team likes to play a wide  open game, then use a few  guards since they can't hurt as  long as the opposition is removing them. If they like the come  around game, play your shots  into the house and force them  GIBSONS  LANES  PORTS  Coast News, March 4,1991  15.

Do they  prefer one turn rather than  another, then force them to the  opposite side of the house.  Watch to see how the other  team is judging the ice. If they  are having trouble, then the  come around game is a good  game to play because the other  team will have to follow you  around the guards. There is a  good chance they will wick off a  guard and leave you with a  counter.  During the course of a game,  the type of play will change  many times depending upon the  opposition, how much of the  game has passed, the score and  who has last stone. Knowing  when to change the style of play  often makes the difference between a win and a loss.  886-2086  Gibson's Landing  Slo-Pitch League  ,t\    ll  8:00 pm March 7, 1991  Cedars Pub  'TENTATIVE LEAGUE  STARTS APRIL 15th"  RETIREMENT LIVING  ...

Budget slashed  District #46 suffers  Cluster Cheetah was �� Pharmasave's Grand Opening to  greet all the youngsters at Sunnycrest Mall last weekend.  Joel Johnstone photo  by Stuart Burnside  School District 46 will  undergo a budget slash of  $200,000 according to a financial report presented by  Secretary Treasurer Tim Anderson at last Tuesday's board  meeting.  The loss of funds, according  to Anderson, is a result of a  provincial funding policy-  block funding���implemented in  districts throughout the province as of July 1990. Block  funding, ideally, gives school  districts more control over their  expenditures by provid't.g  $5,800 per student to all  districts, thus allowing them to  decide upon the allocation of  those funds.  "The amount of money in  the block fund is established  each year and is to be doled out  to the various districts according to fluctuations in student  populations," said Anderson,  "with greater amounts being  provided for students with  special needs (blind, handicapped, or non-English speaking)."  Because District 46's student  population has been augmented  unexpectedly by some 50  students this year, the district  assumed it would be compensated with at least $4000 per student ($200,000) and has been  spending as if that were the  case.  However, Vancouver area  school districts have recently experienced a large influx of non-  English speaking students, according to what Anderson was  told by the Ministry of Education, and require a greater share  of the block funding. "The  money had to come from  somewhere," said Anderson,  stating that District 46, along  with 15 other districts, has apparently been chosen to  shoulder the shortfall.  Anderson said that District  46, instead of receiving the expected increase of $200,000,  had its budget cut by that  amount, seven months into the  fiscal year. "We thought we  were whistling Dixie," Anderson told the Coast News, "now  we find we're sucking wind."  In his financial report,  Anderson stated, "My conversations with school finance staff  indicate that there will be no  relief from this block recalculation. Accordingly, measures will  have to be taken to reduce the  impact..."  Anderson told the Coast  News that those measures could  include a reduction in current  staffing as well as cut backs on  less important educational services and functions. "We won't  automatically be handing out  pink slips, but it is a  possibility," said Anderson.  When asked why he felt  District 46 and 15 others had  been cut while areas like the  Howe Sound School District  had been given increases,  Anderson had no response  other than it was due to "some  kind of provincial calculation".  No one at the offices of the  Ministry   of   Education   was  available for comment as of Friday afternoon.  In response to the budget  cuts, the board trustees of  District 46 agreed, in principle;  to Anderson's suggestion that a  letter be sent to the Minister of  Education and MLA Harold  Long, voicing the board's con;  cerns over the re-appropriation  of block funds so late in the  fiscal year.  Marina plan denied  An apHcation by Kamar Development Corporation for a  commercial marina at Porpoise Bay was denied by the SCRD  Planning Committee. The site was considered to be "inappropriate" for the proposed marina for four reasons.  The area was determined lo be environmentally sensitive.  In the words of the committee "It has a 12 designation in the  Sechelt Inlets Coastal Strategy. It la Important for salmon  habitat and for eel grass."  The committee further fell that community wharves should  be encouraged, that the proposed ana for the marina is "too  large", and, finally, that the upland should be developed  first.

An uncle was in the Marines.  I learned about war, standing  beside my father looking at  maps on the dining room table  and listening to news broadcasts  on the big Philco radio.  We went to the movies to see  cartoons, the "March of Time"  newsreels and movies. It was  referred to in that order of  preference for us.  I learned about war from my  mother who had been in nurses  training during WWI and my  sister enlisted in the Cadet  Nurses Corps and took her  training during WWII.  What does a nine year old kid  do for ihe war effort? I had  been in dance class for a  number of years and our school  of dance became an arm of the  USO, so we danced once and  sometimes twice during the  week and went to school tired  the next day.  Material for costumes and  dance shoes weren't exempt  from rationing. The one bad  thing personally for me is  remembering that my shoes  were usually too big or too  small. Rationing allowed us two  pairs of shoes per year. That  was not enough for a growing  child.  I can't look at sweet breads  today without gagging. Flour,  sugar, butter and meat were  also rationed, along with  gasoline. Occasionally a wild  rabbit went in the pot and we all  were introduced to Spam.  No one spoke during a news  broadcast. I learned of war  through the wonderful  magazines of that era���Life,  Look, Colliers, Time, and the  Rockwell paintings shown on  the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. National Geographic  supplied us the maps, and  words like Wake, Guam, Tin-  nian and Saipan, all islands,  became part of a child's  vocabulary.  We bundled paper, tin foil,  flattened tin cans and gathered  scrap metal and took all these to  a pick-up depot. Recycling was  second nature to me. A sharp  comment came my way if there  was paper on the driveway or  lawn. It was my job to see that  that area was kept tidy.  Hearing the clipped tones of  a BBC correspondent from the  Gulf brings back memories of  the war of my childhood.  The time difference is about  the same���the nighttime broadcasts we heard were coming  from a daytime world. A frequent nighttime visitor to our  home was Fritz Mueller. He had  come to our small town in West  Virginia, to escape the tyranny  of Nazi Germany. He left  behind a brother in the SS and a  broken-hearted mother.  Our big Philco radio had  shortwave, so we were able to  hear BBC, Walter Cronkite,  Edward R. Morrow and William L. Shirer in Berlin. Mr.  Mueller translated the German  broadcasts from Berlin.  This time of night was my  bedtime. It was the same then as  of today���this compelling need  to know of mine. We had IS  steps upstairs. Ten and the landing and then five more. Starting the count up, ihe bannister  started on one and went to  eight. I always sat on seven and  put my feet on five. Six had the  squeak and occasionally 1  forgot and put my feet there.  Usually that brought my father  to the steps and I was allowed to  join them around the table.  People who were the enemies  of the Allied Forces were divided into two groups���the good  and bad people of those countries. One of my friends was a  Roman Catholic, so my learning was extended to that religion  and when I learned of what the  Pope was and the Vatican and  they were in Italy, I was sure I  had a way to have the war stopped���the Pope could stop the  war. My parents exchanged  those parent looks that we all  know. A careful explanation  must have been given, but it  didn't change my mind.  Most of our conversations  were predicated on the words,  "After the war..." We had  hope. The pictures of the  devastation from the atomic  bombs were viewed and cried  over. Everyone of my age group  talked about it. We brought our  magazines to school to share  with others and prayers were offered daily.  Prayer was also a part of  education, then. When we  returned to school in the fall of  1945, news had already started  about the concentration camps.  The horror of the camps and  the horror of the atomic bombs  are the things I remember.  When I went to university,  the Korean War had started.  The school was full of WWII  vets and we watched again with  horror. Again, we looked with  hope to a better age that the  peaceful use of atomic energy  would give us. Less smog and  smoke would be visited on the  people of the Ohio Valley.  Shortly before the Persian  Gulf exploded on January 16,  we went to Seattle to visit with  our son so that we could do our  Christmas exchange.  We shopped in Northgate  Mall and there was a silence  there. People were distracted  and pensive looking. My husband parked my chair so I could  have my cappucino and a  middle-aged man started a conversation. I thought this was  unusual, but he obviously need  ed to talk and I listened.  He had a son in the desert  with the forces. 1 asked what he  thought of the situation and his  response was that he thought  Saddam was a worse madman  than Hitler and qualified this by  stating that he had been a child  in the Netherlands during WW  II.  At Mervyn's, we learned that  the bombing had started and  sober exchange went quickly  from one person to another, in  hushed voices.  In the next couple of days  friends dropped in to visit and I  asked, a number of times, if any  of these over thirty types had  any friends or people they knew  of in the Peace marches.  Finally, I was told by one thai  he knew of no one because all  of his friends worked. Many of  these friends had served from  two to four years in the forces  and they discussed their area of  expertise. None believed it  would be a short skirmish.  I felt my parents had handled  well the 'war' and its effects on  me. But, they didn't have the instant news of television, so that  gave them some opportunity to  get their thoughts together.  There was always hope for...  "after the..." and the business  at hand was living day by day.  It does seem that every 40  years or so the world goes mad  and there is a major confrontation. The fact that we are seeing mostly Judeo-Christian people in conflict with Muslims is  frightening. There is a vast difference in our moral codes and  laws. This makes any immediate  peace negotiations almost impossible.  The Muslim code of behavior  of the Islamic Jilhad, that invoking the name of Allah in  battle would grant the warriors  an instant spot in heaven, seems  beyond comprehension. We only see the Iraq citizens who are  in favour of war���those not in  favour are killed.  One of the points I always  tried to get across to my  students in history was that war  was profitable or we wouldn't  have them. In one of the papers  1 saw a notice of the re-release  of the album Peace by John  Lennon. Yoko Ono, son Julian  and their lawyer made the announcement on the day war  started. This was deliberate on  their part. I was angered and  ask, "Is this Peace for profit or  profit for Peace?"

Coast News, rVarch 4,1991  SCRD launches  land use plan  Following a regional district  decision to create a committee  to develop an 'Integrated Land  Use Strategy' for the Sunshine  Coast, Director Gordon Wilson  has prepared a draft of the  terms of reference for such a  committee.  "It must be made clear," said  Wilson, "that direct input from  the community, industry, the  forest service and other government agencies will be required if  we are to be successful in having  these groups 'buy into' the plan.  "The nature of the work that  needs to be done within this  district is greater than the sum  of the many small local issues  that are currently under discussion within such committees as  the Outdoor Recreation Advisory Committee, the Forestry  Advisory Committee, Ihe Integrated Watershed Management Plan and the Local  Resources Utilization Plan.  "This process will develop an  integrated land management  plan for the entire district, with  a view to removing conflict, and  providing an operating strategy  for local industry, so that the  primary goals of watershed  management, and maintenance  of a viable logging industry,  that is sensitive to environmental and residential concerns,  may be achieved."  Wilson suggests that the new  committee be modelled after the  Foreshore Advisory Task Force  and examine land management.

"There is some urgency in  getting this underway," said  Wilson. He went on to say that  he has had enthusiastic response  to this initiative from the community, the ministries and industry. "I thought I might be  stonewalled, but I was delighted  at the positive response."  "This study may well be a  pilot project that could, if successful, be used as a model for  other areas within the  province."  Directors gave enthusiastic  approval to Wilson's plan, paving the way for applications for  funding, which must come,  Wilson emphasized, from a  variety of sources, so that no  one group would be able to  exert undue influence.  "We need to look at the  macrocosm, not just the  microcosm," stressed Wilson.  "We protect the Tetrahedron, then log the hell out of  Lion Lake," Wilson said by  way of illustration.  The motion lent Director  Wilson the authority to approach governments and industry, as well as to seek potential sources of funding.

The activist-oriented crowd,  numbering some 350, heard  other unions���among them the  IWA���call for government action to protect jobs and health  standards (in the long term)  through tougher environmental  legislation enforcement. This  could be accomplished, it was  argued, through recycling pro  grammes and value-added  policies.  The weekend conference was  organized by the Save Georgia  Strait Alliance and attracted  what Roger Lagasse of the Sunshine Coast Watershed Alliance  (SCWA) described as "a gathering of people concerned about  the ecological health of the  Strait of Georgia bio-region."  In a press release issued  following the event, SCWA  pointed out that "With one  million gallons of toxic waste  being poured into the Strait  every minute and 63,000 barrels  of oil spilt annually, there was  no problem arriving at a consensus for action."  The 21 "expert speakers",  panelists and moderators tried  to come to grips with a wide  range of topics related to and  affecting the environmental  health of the Strait.
