Array Ss-r  ��*.��  onsiders Hillside buy  by Rose Nhrholsoe  The Regional District will  consider the purchase of  Hillside Industrial Park from  the Ministry of Crown Lands at  a price tag of $2.3 million.  The newly completed concept  plan for the 470 acre site was  presented to directors at the October 25 meeting of the Sunshine Coast Regional District.  "The Ministry of Crown  Lands has made an offer to sell  Hillside to the Regional  District" said Director Jim  Gurney. "Financial projections  indicate the project will be self  supporting if the purchase is  financed over a period of 10  years.  "Land sales presently in progress would finance the project  for the next two years. Imminent land sales would Finance  this project for a further four  ���ars. The advantage of owning  to expedite  developnicee, u. i project and  provide a greater degree of control and ensure that the benefits  and profits of the project stay  on the Sunshine Coast."  Hillside planning committee  members Maurice Egan, Bill  Moore, Jim Gurney and Dave  Bakewell expect that no tax  money will be spent on the purchase of Hillside.  "It will pay its own way,"  said Egan. "We will borrow the  money for the purchase price  and we should be able to  recover 60 per cent of that  within the first year."  In a unanimous vote, directors agreed to accept the concept plan and lo refer the purchase plan to the Finance and  Planning Committees for further consideration, and to bring  forth a recommendation to the  next board meeting.  "This fits into our 2020 con  cept of diversifying the  economy," said Director Brett  McGillivray. "I'm confident we  will see an employment base at  Hillside that will rival the mill."  "It will keep control on the  Sunshine Coast," added Director Stan Dixon. "It reminds me  of why we got out of the Indian  Act."  Director Jeremy Frith, commenting on the cutbacks of the  Allowable Annual Cuts in the  forest industry, pointed out that  jobs produced at Hillside would  compensate for the loss of jobs  in the woods and "add value to  the timber that is being produced on the Coast."  The concept plan, representing two years of study and  research, was developed by the  .Economic Development Commission (EDC) with a $90,000  grant from the Ministry of  Crown Lands.  Egan, chairman of the EDC,  paid tribute to the work of  Economic Development Officer  Bill Moore as the "architect of  the plan" and called it "a reflection of his thinking and hard  work."  Hillside, one kilometre south  of Port Mellon, has been in the  past the site of logging operations and a now exhausted  gravel pit that was operated by  Construction Aggregates.  One of the first projects  undertaken in the planning for  Hillside was an environmental  impact study. "We thought it  would be a good idea to do that  first," said Egan, "instead of  having to do something about it  after some of the development  was in place."  "We want the site to be clean  before we buy it," added  Moore. "Since the original  study, there has been another  one to determine whether any  contaminants   remain   from  previous users. We found that  there were two drums of PCBs  left behind by Construction Aggregates. They ve safely stored  in an approved building, but at  the moment, there is no place to  disepose of them."  The planning committee has  calculated that Hillside could  ultimately produce 2025 new  jobs with an annual value of $35  million, as we'll as tax revenues  .of SI.3 million. Cost of site servicing will be borne by industry,  who in most cases will purchase  the land.  The property will be  developed in phases, with Phase  One b<ting the sale to Bayside  Sawmills of the site they  presently occupy; a dry kiln; log  sort and storage yard; and  sawmill and wood chipping  operations (which will include  the conversion of waste wood  into hog fuel).  Phase Two will be the sale of  District Lot 1365 to Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper, who  presently hold the lease.  In Phase Three, three five-  acre waterfront lots will be offered for sale as sawmill sites.  Access to these lots will be by  land only, to protect the sensitive foreshore.  Phase Four will see the  development of a marine terminal and fuel depot that will  provide for the relocation of  fuel tanks that are now located  in several residential areas of the  Coast. The terminal would also  provide an alternative to the  present practice of shipping and  receiving hazardous goods on  the ferries and long term plans  call for the development of a  deep sea port.  Phase   Five   will   be   the  development of the small business   park   with   Phase   Six  creating a light industrial area.

The huge gourd's weight is being  kept secret "for conlest reasons". ���Fran Burnside photo  Area A battle shaping up  First shots fired  Incumbent Area 'A' Director, Gordon Wilson, today filed  papers at the Sunshine Coast  Regional District that will allow  him to continue to serve the  people of the Pender Harbour  and Egmont areas.  Wilson admitted that there  were many factors to be weighed in making his decision, particularly in light of the upcoming provincial election, which he  , will be contesting as the Leader  * of the British Columbia Liberal  Party.  "The easier route would have  beet to abandon the projects  currently underway in Area 'A'  and to focus on my provincial  campaign. However, there are  many people in Area 'A' that  have worked tirelessly on a  variety of projects, not the least  of which is the new zoning bylaw. I feel a strong obligation to  see this work completed for the  betterment of the community."  Wilson said that he was deeply touched by the many calls  Knelman probes Coast future  2020 Conference charts Coast changes  by Rose Nicholson  "The future is not what it used to be, because the acceleration of change, the rapidity and  rate at which technological and  social and environmental matters arc changing are such that,  as Marshall MacLtthan said,  'the political leaders are steering  society through the rear view  mirrors'," said Dr. Fred Knelman, speaking at the 2020 Conference last week in Sechelt.  The conference, spearheaded  by Regional Director Brett  McGillivray, was one of the  first phases in a plan to foresee  and manage the changes that  could happen on the Sunshine  Coast in the next 30 years.  In addition to Knelman's  opening speech, an afternoon  panel discussion featured Richard Allen, Chief Economist of  the BC Central Credit Union,  Catherine Berris of Catherine  Berris Associates Inc. (who was  responsible for the recently  completed Sechelt Inlet study),  and Walter Hardwick, Professor of Urban Geography at  UBC.  Knelman, since his graduation from the University of  Toronto in 1943, has garnered  an impressive list of professional credits which include a  PhD from the University of  London; professorships at  McGill University, the University of California and Concordia  University; and Special Advisor  to the State of California on  Energy and the Environment.  He has published several  books and monographs and has  received a long list of awards  from national and international  organizations, with much of his  work centered around issues of  peace, the environment and in-  . ternational cooperation.  Knelman reminded the audience that modern technology  has created the global village,  and "there is no place to hide  any more, even on this beautiful  Sunshine Coast. Pollution does  not recognize national boundaries, the destruction of the  ozone layer affects us all...We  may be dinosaurs of another  kind."  He stressed that long term  sustainability was critical to our  future planning and warned  against eating into the capital of  our natural resources, rather  than living on the interest.  "We need preventive measures. It is important to not  create the problems in the first  place, rather than try to correct  them after they have  happened."  Knelman spoke of the importance of cooperating with  nature's recycling system and  saw things like clean air and  water, the natural growth cycle  of forests and farm lands as the  'capital' of the planet.  "As long as we live off the interest of nature's resources," he  said, "as long as we don't use  up the capital, as long as we  don't interfere with nature's  processes, we can have long  term sustainability.  "We used to think that the  solution to pollution was dilution, that the air and the oceans  would absorb and dilute all the  pollution we poured into them.  But the capacity of the air and  the oceans is finite, and we have  reached the limit of their rapacity to absorb.  "You could do a study on a  community like this one in  terms of resources and plan for  a sustainable future."  Knelman said that such a  study would anticipate problems beforehand and would be  much more effective than trying  to deal with them afterwards.  "It is important to develop for  this community an exercise for  the future."  Knelman cautioned against  the influence of the entrenched  systems that are resistant to  change. "What we have is a  systemic problem, institutions  that are locked into the maximizing of returns, regardless of  cost, on the assumption that air  and water and land are infinite.'  In answer to a question from  a member of the audience,  Knelman said that an increasing  world population was less of a  threat than "the technological  changes that have increase our  capacity to consume."  Commenting further on possibilities of the good life for the  Sunshine Coast, Knelman said,  "A community like this could  decide on the lower threshold  that would provide for all the  basic needs (food, clothing and  shelter), with no limit on the  higher needs (quality, lifestyle,  freedom, cultural develop  ment)." i  Knelman expressed his firm  belief in the power of the individual to effect change in the  community. "Everything we do  has an impact," he declared.  "When we as individuals live  an ethical life, it affects the  global community. If every  single person in Canada were to  say 'I'm going to intervene  wherever I can to right a  Please turn to pane 16  Watershed funding  Minister of Forests Claude Richmond has Informed the  Regional District that funds ait now available to repair the  damage caused by road building by logging interests in the  Chapman/Gray Creek watershed.

"Any lhat know me, know  that I am a worker, not a talker.  There are those that promise to  be strong voices, or promise full  time representation. I choose to  leave the promises at home and  get on with the job."  Wilson's announcement prompted a swift and negative  response from already declared  Area 'A' candidate, Joe Harrison, who expressed surprise  when he first heard reports that  Wilson had decided to run  again,  "I think it is always better to  have a contest for the position",  Harrison said, "But 1 am frankly amazed that Gordon Wilson  Please turn to page IS  School Board  Professor Francis Konopasek and Judy Wilson have  declared themselves as candidates for the School Board.

"Hell no, we won't go; we won't fight for Texaco!"  Thousands of Americans from every walk of life were  out in the streets of Boston, New York, Atlanta. San Francisco and several cities in Ohio 10 days ago.  Protesting the American military presence in the Persian  Gulf.  The same place where a poorly-equipped contingent of  1 SOO Canadian fighting men and women are in place largely, if not entirely, to lend a daub of moral and ethical pancake make-up to George Bush's latest foray into international power politics.  Bush has an enormous amount of personal prestige,  political capital, and sheer macho face on the line in his  Mexican stand-off with Saddam Hussein. Bush steadfastly  refuses to consider any kind of negotiated settlement  although the Russians, to their credit, have been doing  everything within their power to promote one.  Now they are marching in the streets of the United  States, and the echo of the footsteps reverberate with  crystal clarity here in Canada.  For the first time in a long time Americans are actively  protesting a military adventure in which a shot has yet to  be fired, and the reasons they are doing this is obvious.  A lesson has been learned from Vietnam. War is beginning to be perceived to be less and less a romantic undertaking, more and more a (generally) futile exercise of  thwarted political ambition and an anachronistic obsession  with autonomous nation states and artificial boundaries.  "Hell no, we won't go; we won't fight for Texaso!"  In this chant can be divined several essential truths  which we might be wise to tease out and ponder, consider  ing that, as we pointed out in this space some weeks ago,  "When Washington sneezes, Ottawa reaches for the  Kleenex."  These Americans are refusing to fight for the sake of the  corporate state, its holdings and profits and, while this  perception is somewhat simplistic, it holds water both  practically and morally.  These Americans, most certainly the vanguard of a still-  coalescing reaction to Bush's current folly, are voicing  their palpable fear that a conflagration in the Persian Gulf  is growing more probable with each passing moment.  We are in the position to send the kind of symbolic aid  to our southern neighbours the Coast News was indirectly  advocating earlier.  We must withdraw all Canadian forces and material  from the Persian Gulf immediately, declaring that we  made a mistake deploying them in the first place, and  making it clear that much of our reason for changing our  policy in this matter directly stems from the wake-up call  sent by those Americans with enough insight and guts lo  hit the bricks and protest something which might happen���not just another fait accompli.  This newspaper urges Prime Minister Mulroney to visit  Canadian troops in the gulf next month as an add-on to  his trip to Italy and France.  We urge him to stand on the deck of one of our Canadian ships and announce to everyone that Canada is pulling out.  It is entirely possible that this might be all some other  Bush-whacked, reluctant participants have been waiting to  hear.  Imagine, other countries following Canada's lead. It  might start a trend.  -from our files ���  We Remember When  5 YEARS AGO  Peggy Conner Is feted as Sechelt's 1985 Citizen ol the  Year.

Let alone rationalize, justify,  and excuse the slick, corporate-  governmental shell game which  has been perpetrated ope us  poor, benighted, can't-find-the-  fine-print-for-the-moortbeams  Sunshine Coast backwater  bozos.  On the front page of the July  16, 1990 edition of the Coast  News there is a photograph of  Premier Vander Zalm flashing a  Certified Lethal, dazzling  Cheshire grin which any midway spiel artist would keel over  and die for.  Wearing monogrammed cov  eralls and a welder's mask,  Vander Zalm is putting torch to  pipeline section as part of a  massive reception cum midsummer snowjob hosted by  Pacific Coast Energy Corporation (builder and operator of  the Vancouver Island-bound  line), Alberta Energy Company  Ltd., and Inter-City Gas  Utilities (B.C.) Ltd.  At this singular wingding, fittingly fueled by what turned out  to be an excess of political hot  air, that most natural of gases,  Vander Zalm said (with a  special, insider's wink, no  doubt, for the Sunshine Coast's  political attendees) "It's (the  pipeline) a win-win situation for  everyone. We will all benefit  from this for a long time to  come." (One would like to see  the chiropractic bill for all the  crossed-fingers-behind-back injuries that day).  Well, a "win-win" situation  is what it seemed like to a  preponderance of bright and  savvy movers and shakers here  on the Coast. Concrete promises were made to us ���  through them.  Virtually everyone could  count on "Going Gas", with all  the benefits of economy, effi  ciency, and environmental  cleanliness which accompanies  this user-friendly substance. In  fact, at least one local governmental entity began to look  seriously at converting its official vehicles from fossil fuel to  pure, sweet, cheap natural gas.  The Press suggests that  "Perhaps the regional district  believed all the press releases  and glossy brochures put out by  Pacific Coast Energy Corporation...", the clear implication  being that the SCRD (and all us  other poor, gullible slobs who  believed in the promise of gas  for the asking) should have  known better than to take these  assurances at face value!  In other words, if the con job  is nifty-nimble enough, the  sucker has no grounds for complaint.  Hey, maybe The Press is  right. Maybe they're sharper,  more hip than the rest of us and  can smell a hype coming from a  safe distance.  So shame on the SCRD and  everybody else who believed  what was said in those "...press  releases and glossy brochures."  Shame on just plain Coast  folk like Gordon Wilson, who  came out and flatly asserted  that there was not merely a con,  but a breach of contract. Verbal  promises had been made (and  right out in public!) and I imagine the glossy brochures,  press releases, Pipeline Salmon  Dinners, and symbolic Vander  Welds were all just part and  parcel of the bamboozle.  Well, me bucko, those zoot-  suited, uptown slicksters sure  suckered us, eh?  I mean, we allowed these  corporate-politico shaved-dice  specialists to plant their 84-odd  kilometers of pipe beneath our  soil and across 52 creeks, apparently thrashing a few of  them in the process. We helped  them, cleared the way for them  politically and environmentally,  and generally greased the skids  for them and their pipeline.  Why did we do all this for  these natural gasheads? To turn  a quick buck for the Coast? To  demonstrate our innate  neighbourliness? To show our  love of the profit motive? Or  because we're just a bunch of  whacked-out masochists?  Nope. We did it because we  took a lot of highly-placed people in private enterprise and  Please turn lo page 5  In a nutshell  The saga of Scruffy Shaw  by S. Nutter  He was the oldest pilot on  the squadron in Newfoundland through 1942 and  1943 but he was probably the  liveliest and certainly the  scruffiest.  His hat, for example, the  brim crushed down about his  ears, was faded from regulation blue to a quite unique  shade of violet and encrusted  all over with dried sea brine.  From sticking his head out into the spray of course, this was  a flying boat squadron.  Brian ('Scruffy') Shaw  looked younger than he musl  have been (he wore the  Mesopotamian medal from  World War I) but nevertheless  managed to look almost a  double for John Barrymore in  his later years. He had been  flying hither and yon since  WW I, but not with the /Mr  Force.  As we got to know and  value him, stories came out  about flying hooch across the  border from pastures in  Manitoba; or into ostensibly  dry hotels in the mountains; or  out to some gambling ship  tethered off Los Angeles,  which is where he got to know  Barrymore and sure they must  have been a pair.  He carried the Barrymore  character with him. I don't  think he was playing Bar  rymore, aping Barrymore. It  was all quite genuinely Shaw,  down to the Mephistophelian  limp (nothing wrong with the  limbs ��� totally an expression  of the personality).  He was certainly a  refreshing character to have  around, at least for us who  were on his side as it were.  There were others around who  shied away. He could blow the  head right off a stuffy or  boastful type with one  sentence at a hundred paces.  What happened would, I  guess, have to be put down to  his age. It was really, looking  back, a young person's game.  He got noticeably moody we  thought over a period, and  then one night, one particularly grisly AM, he look off with  his rudders locked, a simple  oversight of his own.  He wrestled the lumbering  old Canso, carrying gas for 20  hours, around on ailerons  alone; managed to thump her  back down on the runway, and  took to his bed. For some days  thereafter we ministered to  him in his room.  And it was shortly after this  that he began to have his  dreams. With his usual cackling humour he recounted these  with gusto, to everyone in earshot. It got to be an almost  daily thing, Scruffy's dreams.  Then there got to be just the  one recurring dream and the  seal came into his life.  In this dream he found  himself standing on a rocky  shore of Newfoundland. A  seal would swim up to him out  of the briny. Scruffy would  wade in and clasp this seal to  his bosom. "Let me go, let me  go" the seal would cry. "Not  until you tell me how to get  out of Newfoundland" was  Scruffy's reply. And of course  the seal would tell him what to  do, and of course Brian would  have to follow along and do it.  "It's uncanny" he would say,  "but here I find myself totally  under the control of this seal."  At first it was quite simple  stuff. The seal told him to  grow a beard. You couldn't  have beards in the Air Force.  Scruffy grew a heavy black  moustache, and grew it down  down and around until it  almost met at his chin. When  he began to look like  something out of the Mikado,  the CO told him, rather  abruptly, to take it off.  Then, still following seal  orders, he would arrive every  morning at the CO's office  door; knock, enter, salute; say  "Good Morning Sir"; do  about turn; knock on the inside of the door; and leave.  The CO was a kindly Newfoundlander, chose to ignore  this and it went on for weeks.  There followed a series of  perpetrations which Brian  continued stoutly to blame on  the see' He appeared at a  mess dinner wearing his slippers; got the padre drunk and  cut off half his moustache;  proclaimed himself a communist and turned up at  church parade in a red tie, etc.  Finally though, he put in to  change his name. He had  found out that if you applied  they'd have to do this, and he  wanted it changed from Brian  Shaw to Patrick Shaun.  Thai did it. We all had  masses of files at that time. All  his records would have lo be  changed. His posting came  through within a week, and a  good one too...  Vancouver, there to bask  about and accept deliveries of  new flying boats coming up  from San Diego. He packed  his books and his tea things,  gave me Blanco, his old bull  terrier who'd become the  squadron mascot, and after a  suitable bash took off...  But that was not to be it.  Some irreverent types said the  seal had its revenge. Call it  irony, call it just wayward accident, call it fate, but one  sunny day not long after he arrived he was overseeing an aircraft being pulled up the ramp  at Jericho Beach and the rope  broke. The whole great contraption rolled back, and that  was the end of his story.

Bebb, RPF who has  distinguished himself in an  earlier edition as a proponent of  the use of herbicides in our  forests, who scoffs at our concerns despite the dangers,  despite the alternatives and  despite the widespread public  disapproval of these poisons.  Now, in Mr. Bebb's most recent submission to your paper,  he attacks Steve Cohl, who had  recently written with suggestions for an alternative ap  proach to the practice of  forestry, suggestions which, if  implemented, could give us far  greater hope of 'Forests  Forever', than we have today.  Certainly, the destructive  practices that are standard procedure in the logging industry,  as we know it, are self-limiting  and cannot continue forever.  Writer Bebb suggests that  Mr. Cohl would benefit from  reading a "basic text on the  practice of silviculture", implying that unless one has done this  reading, and believes what has  been written, then one is not fit  to offer suggestions for change.  Mr. Bebb, 'wake up and  smell the coffee'. One simply  has to look at the present state  of affairs in our province's  forests, (indeed, in forests  throughout the world) to see  that there are devastating consequences, both ecological and  Listen to the Inner Voice'  economical, from the practice  of forestry as modelled in your  'basic texts'.  The textbooks of 'experts'  have been challenged and revised throughout the .ages, these  'experts' have been wrong  before, often leaving disastrous  and irreversible results. A true  professional is open to and accepting of new ideas and is  capable of incorporating these  concepts that have merit, into  his or her practice.  Soon, Mr. Bebb, if you are to  remain current with sound  forestry practices, (that is, if my  forests remain for harvest) you  will be asked to read the newest  editions of the 'basic texts', and  I trust that Steve Cohl and other  like-minded people, people who  really do care about our forests,  our world, will have written the  chapters.  Lome Berman  Getting the BC Tel' shaft'  Editor:        ^^^^  They're trying it again! To  'shaft us'���and this time it's our  friendly BC Tel! Just giving us a  chance to vote to triple our  phone rate. Mind now���that's  just for the privilege of phoning  a select number of phone  numbers in Vancouver; not  West Vancouver or North Vancouver, or any number not  listed.  Just who is supposed to  benefit? Most businesses in  Setchelt or Gibsons already have  direct line machines to thdr  wholesalers. I am sure these  operate much cheaper than the  proposed triple hike for  business phons. This is also a  big increase for the smaller  private business person who  makes the occasional call to  Vancouver.  Residence customers, check  your proposed monthly rate increase and multiply this by 12  (months). This should pay for a  lot of extra calls to Vancouver���use them or not! So  whose bills are we to pay?  If we can't buy it in Gibsons  or Sechdt, and they can't gd it  in for us, most of us shop West  or North Vancouver.  Our present phone bill is  already taxed 11 per cent federal  and 6 per cent provincial. This  triple hike will l>e taxe*d .accordingly. Do you ever wondCT  why we are taxed almost double  federal tax on a BC company?  Better smarten up while we  can and be sure to vote NO to  BC Tele-phone on this one!  Concerned Sunshine Coast  Resident.  M.G. Baird  FAC attitudes shocking  Editor:  One of the most fascinating  sources I have found while  gathering information recently,  is an American newsletter called  Inner Voice. It is published by  the Association of Forst Service Employes For Environmental Ethics (AFSEE). It  provids a forum for Forst Service employes who are "frustrated because their resource  ethics conflict with their job"  and who are "afraid to speak  out for what they know is  ecologically   right."  I have talked to and worked  with foresters in BC who are  concerned about current management practices in our province. I think they too, feel it is  risky to speak out publicly. One  forster doubts the effectiveness  of herbicides and has seen plantations lose a year's growth  after being sprayed; another  feels that top priority in forst  management should be given to  silviculture instead of to logging; another is against the use of  herbicides and fully supported  this community's efforts to stop  the spraying of Vision in our  watershed; another is concerned  that graduating forsters and  technicians need to be better  prepared for managing our  future forsts, and has said that  speaking out would mean having to look for a new job.

I want to emphasize that  policies and decisions are made  at the top and that the onus is  on us to bring about changes at  the top. We can do this by expressing our views through letters to political representatives  and local editors, through public debate, and specially at the  ballot box. Ultimately, the fundamental changes that are  necessary in the management of  our forsts will have to come  from us���the voting public.  I leave you with a quote from  a letter to Inner Voice concerning change: "Ultimately, I think  of it all as trying to get someone  to quit smoking.

Frankly, I'm shocked. The  implication made by several  FAC members (indeed, people  who should know better!) is  that those of us who have been  activly protesting the use of Vision by our local forest service  are unaware of the use of Vision  in the agriculture sector or bv  individuals. "Public ignorance?" Hardly.  Using the premise of "thinking globally and acting locally",  I have seen these protest actions  only as a beginning. The fotest  service had a plan to spray herbicides in my community - action was nec��sary and was  taken. One step at a time.  Many of us up on the blocks  work hard to produce organic  food to feed our families. We  shop carefully; we educate our  children about the care we need  to take with our sick (and dying?) planet. The suggestion  that "a lol of people who are  concerned about forest use (of  herbicides) are guilty of much  worse in their own backyards"  is both ludicrous and insulting.  Be assured that the action  taken against herbicide use in  the public sector have been and  will continue to be followed up  in the private sector. Of course,  forestry is not the only guilty  party - and we won't stop there.  Perhaps the FAC should look  into preparing a 'fact sheet' for  its own members on the  knowledge base of the public it  seems to want to sprak for.  Donna Shugar  Student's concerns  Editor's note: The following  was recdved for publication.  Sunshine Coast  Regional District  I am a concerned grade 7  student at Cedar Grove Elementary school. I am concerned for  the safety of my fellow students  I understand that you are  planning to build a fire hall next  door to the school on Chaster  Road. I think that having a fire  hall there would be very dangerous.  There are many young children in the area because there is  an elementary school in the  neighborhood. Before and after  school every weekday, there are  ''���children running all over  Chaster Road. If there happen  ed to be a fire at that time of  day, and the volunteer firemen  came rushing down Chaster  Road towards the fire hall, or  the fire truck came rushing  down the road on its way to a  fire, it is possible that someone  could easily get injured. If you  did go slowly there is a chance  that you wouldn't get to the fire  on time.  I'm sure you think that having a fire hall there would be a  great idea, but you might find  out it isn't and hopefully then it  won't be too Imp  Emily I-eighton  More letters  on page 27  "You can't get better  service anywhere else  LUBE, OIL & FILTER  ,au Ml.**  TUNE-UP  Starts At A  Low Price Of  $59.95  Labour Only 4 Cy��-  E.F.I.

"Because I've lived here for  all these years", the semi-retired  forestry vaeran told the Cottat  News, "I would like to give  something back to my community. Now that I have time, 1  think I could do this as an alderman."  Bradshaw, who has lived and  worked his entire life in BC, is a  member of the Gibsons Lions  Club, and chairman of his  strata council on Farnham  Road.  "I'm. not against planned  development", Bradshaw  notes, "But I want to make sure  the town has the capacity to service the expected new growth  with regards to water, roads,  sewage, and so forth."  The candidate wants to accomplish all this without adding  to the present burden on taxpayers.  "This means", Bradshaw  emphasized, "that we must  have a long-range plan for  future expansion in place���ud  keep it updated as our town  grows."!  MARGARET MORRISON  A newcomer to Gibsons from  the Okanagan Valley, Ms  McCaughan-Morrison is a  former University Administrator and Professor of Business  Law at the University of Alberta. She served as an alderman in  , Peachland for five years and in  1989 published a book on the  BC Municipal Act! her intent in  writing it being "...to provide,  for elected officials and others,  a guide to the complexities of  municipal legislation."  McCaughan-Morrison told  the Coast News that increasing  property taxation "...seems inevitable because of our restricted land base, no industry  and small commercial base."  She went on to note that "The  residential taxpayer shoulders  the lions' share of the cost of  running the town. Boundary expansion may be the answer to  the need to broaden the tax  base."  She claims that lack of water  in Gibsons seems ridiculous and  that steps must be taken to ensure no more shortages. Ms  McCaughan-Morrison also decries the state of Gibsons' road  system, calling for "...appropriate risk management procedures" to deal with municipal  liability.  McCaughan-Morrison expresses concern about "...the  operational structure of Council  and municipal staff", calls cooperation with "...other jurisdictions on the Coast" imperative, sees an "obvious  need" for "...most carefully  planned development...to preserve the delightful village atmosphere in Gibsons", and she  believes there is a strong need  for Council and staff to  "...listen to the people." ���  DR. ED STEEVES  A retired chiropractor and  businessman who moved to the  Sunshine Coast two years ago,  Dr. Steeves boasts an extensive  involvement with municipal  politics, having served eight  years on the Moncton, New  Brunswick, City Council. He  was, among other postings,  Chairman of Public Works and  Engineering Committee, Chairman of Parks and Recreation,  as well as Chairman of Community Seivices Committee.  "The fact that I do not reside  within the confines of the town  limits is not perceived by me as  a detriment", Steeves asserts,  adding that it might be a plus  given that "Decisions...would  be made...with no problem of  conflict of interest or personal  gain in mind." ���  /DEPENDABLE  Did you know...

Mr. Huggins was born and  educated in England, served  with the British and Indian ar  mies during WWII, moved to  Canada in 1948, then spent  most of the ensuing 40 years in  top management at Dow Chemical. In 1981, although still living in the United Kingdom, Mr.  Huggins built a home here in  Gibsons "via overseas telephone." In 1986 he and wife  Shirley became permanent  residents.  "Sound preplanning is essential to facilitate the inevitable  growth of our coastal  facilities", opines Huggins,  "...particularly the much needed improvement of the harbour.  This includes the increased  amount of air traffic, aspects of  the ferry service (ie., daily commuters and goods required by  our merchants), and the fact  that Gibsons is a port town and  we must be prepared for expansion in all areas of our marine  life." ���  KARL HAWKINS  A mine foreman for close to  40 years, H. Karl Hawkins has  lived in Gibsons for five years,  and has served (in a volunteer  capacity) as Fire Chief, Chairman of the Court of Revision,  and on the Hospital Board.  He, too, has met with Eric  Small.  "We discussed many  things in regards to what I  would like to see happening in  Gibsons", Hawkins told the  Coast News, "and I must say I  agree with Mr. Small's platform.  "But if I were to be ekcted",  Hawkins went on to say, "I  would follow up on our water  supply. I understand the present  council is looking into either  bigger pumps���or more  pumps���and also digging a well  in upper Gibsons...That is  where I would like to channel  my concerns.

Local, contractors have  shared in this work as well as in  the clearing of standing timber  along the service road from the  highway. The culvert itself is  552 feet long, just about twice  the distance Ben Johnson ripped through at the Seoul Olympics, and 11 fwt high. Langdale  Creek ripples along at the bottom of this outsize pipe. Covering the culvert is more than  500,000 cubic meters of fill.  A sign at the beginning of the  service road says bluntly in  black on white letters,  "Danger...No trespassing...Excavations."  "And for good reason," said  a BC Highways spokesman.  "There are a number of deep  settling ponds alongside the narrow road. Really no place for  sightseers or youngsters on trail  bikes."  "The green grass on that  stretch of bare slope? Well, we  "Do you know  how much  you're worth?  You should':  'You wouldn't buy a house il  you didn't know the total cost.  And you shouldn't plan your  financial future unless you  know your net worth. It's easy  to figure out. and it's probably  more than you thought. Let me  help you take this lirst step.

Some  of the seeding was done by hand  and a good deal of it blown on  by the special truck."  The bypass from the  Langdale Ferry to Pratt Road is  at present a two phase project,  but it would shorten construction time if the two phases were  completed one right after the  other. That would make it a real  bypass to ease congestion and  noise on North Road and that  traffic circus���the highway near  the mall. If only phase one  alone is done, North Road will  be its busy as ever.  Piles of logs, evergreens as  well as alder, have been scaled  and stamped by the Forest Service ready for sale by bid to  small business.  Let's hope road building can  start in earnest in the spring.  CHIEFLY FOR WOMEN  The Gibsons Business and  Professional Women's Club is  part of a worldwide organization that has member clubs  across Canada and one in  neighbouring Sechelt.  "Any woman employed in  the work place can join,"  Laurella Hay told us. "We meet  once a month at dinner. Our  next meeting is November 5.  For information call Carol Service at 885-9297."  The December meeting is the  Christmas party held jointly  with the Sechelt club.  "Through the efforts of our  Canada-wide organization the  Canada Pension's spousal benefits continue at the death of the  pensioner. Men can take note  that spousal benefits apply to  them, too."  LANGDALE ELEMENTARY  A recent newsletter from the  school tells of a project that uses  waste from snacks and noon  lunches to make compost. The  school has purchased a 'green  cone' that is completely enclosed and rodent resistant, and only needs a once-a-year emptying. Tough scavenging for the  crows!

GIBSONS FILMAKER  Zale Dalen of Marina House  on Marine Drive in Gibsons has  directed a film this past season  in Toronto for a Los Angeles  company about an American  figure skater's career featuring  Vancouver actors Rachel  Crawford and Randy Gardner.  The story is about a little girl  who wanted to skate and did,  enduring the agonizing of training, to become with her partner  the first American figure  skating team in 29 years to win1  the gold in the World Cham- il  pionships.  "We had to age two characters many times in this film  and. we required altogether 12  players, which included doubles  of various ages for the skating  scenes," said Zale. "Quite a  challenge."  The film will be shown November 5 on NBC, "Probably  under the title of Ice Princess,  although we called it On Thin  Ice."  Zale will direct two episodes  of Jump Street in November for  producer John Smith in the  studios next to the Park and  Tilford Gardens.

We believed, as  Premier Vander Zalm told us,  that we were part of "...a win-  win situation." We believed  that most of us would have  natural gas available to us.  The best estimate I've managed to come up with is that  roughly 12,000 people on the  Sunshine Coast will not now be  'eligible'   for   natural   gas  delivery. That's about 60 per  cent of the residents on this  Coast. Maybe 10 years down  the road, as The Press suggests,  we'll all be cookin' with gas, but  that's not saying much considering what was promised.  Oh, by the way. If you liked  the natural gas deal, let me clue  you in on a really sweet scam I'll  be happy to cut you in on.

Only the Sunshine Coast  Slipper Company Ltd. uses one  hundred per cent pure dense  Australian Merino, and even  then we find that due to past  crossing misadventures, only  ninety per cent of the Australian  hides are the high density  Merinos. As part of our quality  control, we carefully inspect and  ���grade the hides in every shipment, selecting the thickest hides  for sole material and using the  poorer low density ten per cent  for seat belt covers, pet rugs, bwr  coolers, hats and other products  not subject to the intense wear of  footwear.  You'll be "soled" on our slippers  The many unique qualities in wool have made  sheepskin popular Ibr  centuries because it long ago  ciinicd a reputation lor Ix'ing  "wai in in winter and rool in summer," an ideal garment material  len llll" winter raid of the mirth,  ihe dampness of coastal climates,  ami ilii' lint days and cold nights  of the' desert.

For  these reasons the rainliirl ol  slurpskin is enjoyed year round  in eliniaiis varying limn the Alt'-  lic to the Sahara.  However, sheepskin's use in  wearing apparel has always ebren  \ limited because of cleaning difficulties. As with any leather,  washing shrepskin normally pro-  'duces a stiff or board-like  material upon drying, as Eskimo  women can testify. But the recent  development of chromium dioxide tanning techniques has  changed all this. Chrome-  tanning, as it is called, breaks the  r<~V  leather tissues down one step further than ordinary tanning processes. This additional fibre  breakdown allows the sheepskin  to retain its suppleness after  washing and drying.  Additional fibre breakdown  lor washability is gained at the  expense (ie: loss) of some  wearability. But this only  becomes a factor where the hide  is exposed to intense wear, such  as on the soles of slippers.  Chrome-tanned sheepskin slippers will quickly wear a hole in  the sole, especially if they get wet  and arc worn wet, unless the sole  is given added protection. For  this reason we laminate the sole  with one eighth inch split suede  cowhide, and we glue, double  stitch, and use extra strength  polyester thread to assemble  these materials together.  These features add five dollars  to the cost of our slippers, but tri;  pie their life. If given 9"  reasonable amount of care and���  worn indoors all day every day,  our slippers will last two years on  hardwood floors and four years  or longer on carpets, depending  on the degree of care received.  Customers will not wear a hole in  the sole, but eventually the wool  will wear off the inside bottom.  And even then if they are washed  and returned, we will replace the  soles for only twenty dollars!  ���  We are often asked why our slippers arc so comfortable and last so  long. The chief reason is because we  use only first grade Australian  Merino sheepskin.  M  ermii is a Spanish  word meaning "community leader" in the  secular sense, or "shepherd" in  the biblical sense. Merino wcxil is  see line lhat it can be woven into a  fabric almost as sheer and  resilient as silk, yet possessing  greater strength and warmth.  Merino sheep originated in  North Africa and are closely intertwined with the development  of western civilizations. Merino  wool enterprises not only founded the corporate insurance industry, but also financed the industrial revolution in England,  and later, in Europe and beyond.  Production of Merino wool, and  anxieties, disputes and wars over  Merino wixil monopolies, rank  second only to (he eternal search  for gold in the evolution of  western civilizations.  The Spanish Moors introduced Merinos from the deserts of  North Africa into Spain and  southern Europe in the twelfth  century, and the Spanish Empire  later introduced Merinos into  South America in the sixtrenth  century. The Dutch, in their  turn trying to become a colonial  superpower like Spain and  England, introduced Merinos into South Africa. Wool price  disputes between the Dutch Boer  ranchers and British wool merchants (who egot the lion's share of  the profits, and were able to enforce this system with British  naval sea power) sowed the seeds  of the Bex-r War.  In 1778, the enter-prizing  British Captain Waterhouse of  HMS Reliance took some of  these South African Merino  sheep to Australia along with a  left?  boatload of prisoners, and started  the huge Merino sheep/penal  labour enterprize in Australia.  This in turn inspired and financed many new things such as the  beginning of Lloyd's of London  and the corporate insurance industry, and thence the British industrial revolution, which in tum  spread world wide. Merinos are  now native to Spain, Portugal,  Australia, New Zealand,  Uruguay, Argentina, South  Africa and China. Spanish and  Australian Merinos are the  purest flocks of today's Merino  sheep populations. Australia's  Merino sheep number nearly  170 million, ninety per cent of  which are pure Merino, or mostly Merino.  Uruguay, Argentina and New  Zealand, on the other hand, had  decided not to 'put all their eggs  in one basket,' and opted for  sheep meat production as well as  wixil pnxluction. New Zealand  has become the world's largest  exporter of lamb meat products.  For the last two hundred years  New Zealand entrepreneurs have  tried to marry the fine wool  characteristics of Merino and the  good meat production qualities  of the coarser breeds by various  cross breedings. They have  achieved partial success in that  some crosses achieve good (but  not great) meat production along  with the fine wool characteristics  of the Merino.  But these crosses never achieve  the full density of the Merino,  even when wool fineness is  delivered. Merinos have twice  the number of hairs per square  inch as all other breeds, including most crosses. Merino  wool is so dense that five pure  Merinos can produce enough  fine wool fibre in only one year to  circumnavigate the earth at the  equator! Merino sheepskin density makes up for the wool's  fineness in long life footwear  wearability.  Most North American woven  wool garments produce the scratchy or itchy feeling experienced  in garments such as Stanfields  underwear because the wool is  from coarser breeds better suited  to the felt and carpet industries.  Merino woven wool makes poor  carpets, but makes first class  'next to the bare skin' woolen  garments and scarves, and only  dense genuine Merino sheepskin  makes state of die art sheepskin  slippers.  In the woolen apparel industry  there are basically only two types  of wool fibres: Merino (fine  wool) and all others (coarse  wcol). Historically, Merino wool  was the privileged wool supply  for only the wealthy and ruling  classes, while the coarser breeds  were delegated by lower price to  the poorer classes. This is  because although Merino sheep  are excellent fine soft wool producers, they are poor meat producers, The overall utility of the  flock is lowered and the cost of  wool production therefore raised  in the poor meat producing  Merino (locks. The poorer  classes were relegated to coarse  wool because the high cost of  wool production was mitigated  by meat utility.  If a Merino sheep was raised  for only the slippers it could produce, the price of a pair of slippers would be comparable to a  mink stole, because the cost of  rearing one animal to pelt size is  about the same. Long ago (and  still true today) sheep became  much valued for their fleece,  milk, meat and hides (in descending order of value). Sheepskin is  the lowest priority of Merino  sheep utility. The Sunshine  Coast Slipper Company uses  only hides from animals which  were originally bred for other  purposes.  CINDERELLA NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD  I," ven though Merinos arc  I    poor    meat    producers  and arc principally raised lor their line wool and not  meat, the enigma is that our pro-  duets lire nevertheless still a byproduct of the meat industry. It  is not in the sheep ranchers' best  interest to "slay the goose that  laid the golden egg" as il were,  bul from time lo time, outside  market and weather circumstances varying from bankruptcies to predation, and from  broken limbs to disease and  drought, often require slaughter  ol some' animals.  For example, this year's  drought in Australia dictates a  nationwide ten percent Merino  Hock reduction. This means lhal  seventeen million more Merinos  will enter the meat market in late  l!)9() Irom Australia alone. In  (lays past these animals would lx'  simply sheared, wool seild, meat  recovered and sold, and the  skins, for the most part, ground  up for pet fuexl or lish lixxl.  Chrome-tanning techniques  mean that the world can now  enjoy thirty-four million more  sheepskin slippers (if it so  desires, and wisely so, wc expect) from hides that otherwise  would go into dog food. As well,  chrometanning technology  means that the rancher will be  able to recover an additional  two to four dollars per animal  that otherwise would be only  forty cents for Fido food or four  cents for fish food, or, all too  often, a total write-off.  We are often asked about  waterproofing our sheepskin products. All our products can be  easily waterproofed by spraying  with silicon. But, when siliconed,  the sheepskin can no longer  'breathe', perspiration becomes a  problem, and comfort is lost. In  this case the customer might as  well buy synthetic fibres for half  the price. For this reason we've  abandoned putting rubber or  neoprene soles on our slippers  because sweating is then induced  on the soles of the feet.  Other manufacturers do make  slurpskin slippers, shix-s, and  lioots with rubber soles, but,  since we specialize in indoor  comfort, we decided to leave the  outdoor footwear market to  oihers, If you must wear our products outdoors, then our snow  paik boot liners or lixise lilting  loc rublx'rs over the sheepskin  slipix'r is the Ix'sl compromise  Ix'twcen long life, cosy comfort,  warmth and slurpskin breath-  ability lo prevent perspiration  discomforts,  If wxks are worn inside our  slurpskin slippers, then perspiration can become a problem in  summertime. If our slippers arc  worn on bare feet, then the non-  itchy, non-sweat, long wear, high  de'iisity cosy comfort of the line  wool Merino can be experienced without cleaning worries,  lhanks to chrome-tanning  technology. And added to the  comfort in summer of bare feet  against line wixil sheepskin will  lx' a more raoling effect when the  slippers are worn loeisely without  sinks.  The Sunshine Coast Slipper  Company Ltd. opted for lambskin in 1991) (as opposed to  slurpskin) because five year's cx-  perience has proven that adull  shirp are Kxi stained on the fur  side for ihe discriminating North  American market and subject to  Ion many innoculations for  various seed marks, disease anel  pest controls, and infections from  barbwire scratches and dingo  dug bites.  Some antibiotic innoculations  weaken the skin tissues and cannot be easily discerned once the  hide is tanned, dyed, and  delivered to us. These hide flaws  and weaknesses can show up by  the customer's toe going through  Ihe front in as litde as only a  month or so of wear. This is  public relations the Sunshine  Coast Slipper Company Ltd.  can do without. We challenge  anyoni- in Ix-al our  quulity and guaranty's at any price.  For this reason  we've stepped up to  first grade lambskin  this year, This is as  good as il gels.  Limbskins are  lilieen .percent  more costly  than sheepskins because  there are so  tew of them,  but ihey have  the advantage's  of filler softer  wool without  stains, intuit u lal ion  weak n esses  and barbwire  inlii in en sears.  Itching for a good night's sleep?  ���- We've got the lamb, ma'aaaaaam!���������M  B  esides slippers, the Sun-  e shine Coast Slipper  Company Ltd. makes a  whole bust of other quality  machine washable lambskin products from hot water Ixittle  covers, car wash mitts and bicycle seat covers to hats, custom car  seat covers, and mattress covers,  Our world renowned 'real  thing' mattress covers anil  wheelchair covers are popular  with those who really wanl In impress the ones they love, and are  virtually a necessity tor the  bedridden, arthritics and others  suffering poor circulation from  dialx'tes. Only genuine sheepskin can keep the heat in without  perspiration. This is accomplished with all our prixlucts, including the mattress covers, by  using hides sheared off to one  inch or twenty-five millimetres  deep, creating a dense 'bristle' effect.  These non-itching fine wool  Merino lambskin bristles are so  dense' thai ihey function to keep  the I ia m I>- up oil the mattress and  thereby allow air to circulate  underneath the body. If low density sheepskins are used, the wool  will matt down and ihis function  is lost, in which case the  customer is Ix'tter oil' purchasing  a wool blanket for one quarter  the price and getting the same  discomfort, ie: sweating because  the air cannot circulate  underneath.  Our .genuine Merino lambskin  skicpcrs are "like sleeping on a  cloud." The imitation Woolrest,  Softslcep, Supersleeper, etc.,  mattress covers are 'imitation' in  lhat even though they use real  sheep's wool, the wool is woven  onto a fabric back. Since the best  loom in the world can only weave  wool one quarter as dense as  Merino lambskin, they are prone  to matt down easily and have to  be constantly fluffed up to main  tain the breathability/comfort  function,  Imitations are half the price of  the real thing, but have only one  quarter the wool. Even with constant maintenance and daily 'fluffing1, they are only a fraction of  the comfort of the real thing. For  these same reasons our bicycle  seat covers and wheelchair covers  are also the 'real thing" and the  Ix'st there is, and arc popular  with those who want maximum  comfort from maximum density  machine washable fine wool  Merino lambskin.  .Ml our prixlucts come with a  no-nonsense money back guarantee. Should a customer be  unhappy with our products for  any reason, money is cheerfully  refunded. Should any stitching  bttome frayed or worn on any of  our products, including (and  especially) slip|)ers, within one  year, simply wash and return the  product for free repair and return  |xistage paid.

Don't be shy should you experience any sort of problem  with our products. Return immediately for free repair, a-  change.or money refunded! Even if Fido can't shake the habit  of munching Merinos, and your  pet pooech chews a hole in the  toe, we will do repairs for a  minimum charge, usually five  to ten dollars. And remember  that we will replace entire soles  after two years, four years, (or  forever) for only twenty dollars  per pair!

About a  quarter to 121 opened the door  to let the dogs out for the night  and was assailed by such a  stench I thought one of the dogs  must have passed wind.  It had that same rotten,  fermented odour but was so  ghastly strong and pervasive I  immediately doubted it could be  produced by one animal. Also it  had an underlying chemical  quality like the stink produced  wheat a propane tank is nearing  empty.  My mouth turned down in a  disgusted grimace. I checked the  front and side doors; it was  there too. I went to bed but felt  uneasy. I sniffed and faintly  detected the foul air seeping into  the house. My exaggerated fears  flashed chemical warfare and  death in our beds.  1 got up for one more whiff  of outside air. Yes, it was really  that bad. In the morning the  rain storm had washed away the  smell and almost the memory.  So, I decided to ask, did anyone  else smell that incredibly offensive odour in the air Tuesday  night?

"Two point three million  dollars is a lot of money," concluded Gurney. "But the value  is much higher than that. This is  not so much a purchase, but is  more of a grant. If it were on  the open market, it wouldn't  last a day."  "We have petroleum storage  all over the Coast," added  Frith.

PENDER PATTER  Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 112, Madeira Park, contributes  a cheque for medical equipment to the Pender Harbour Medical  Clink. ���Ann Cook photo  Senior housing sought  The Area A Seniors Housing  Project Society (SHPS) has  released its latest report through  society spokesman Kenneth  Burroughs of Madeira Park.  "The socirty board met with  the BC Housing Commission  and we came away with some  rather discouraging news,"  Burroughs told the Coast News.  "They told us that money is  tight and approvtri (only) on a  community ne��eds bitsis." The  SHPS was informed that the  commission's 1990 budget has  "...long since been committed"  and that the Seniors' organization will have to prove its need  for subsidized housing by producing a list of qualifying applicants who meet income requirements, etc.  "They told us that two years  processing time, prior to ap  proval, is not uncommon for  projects such as ours," Mr.  Burroughs said, adding that  "Area A population density is  'borderline' insofar as the commission's approval guidelines  are concemesd."  Burroughs noted that the  SHPS Board's "Number one  priority" is to gather as many  applicant names as possible to  establish the Seniors' housing  needs.  "We plan to do this," said  Burroughs, "by interviewing as  many applicants as possible,  and by arranging for a once-a-  week open discussion location  where Seniors housing can be  aired extensively."  All interested parties can contact the SHPS by calling Kenneth Burroughs directly at  883-9968.  YOU PICK  CANNING TOMATOES  25c/lb.

I will continue doing  (my own) business there, hopefully for many years to come.  For the record, the reason for  the closure of the Coast News  office at the Paper Mill is 'ir-  reconsilable differences' between myself and my good  friend John Burnside. I have  not been fired and I have not  quit. J.B. and I are disagreeing  mainly about which of us is  more stubborn.  1 write this with mixed feelings, much like one has in the  dentist's chair before the extraction of a tooth that's been  aching for a long time. I feel  both a sense of loss and a sense  of relief, and I expect a bit of  discomfort (it's hard to say  goodbye).  I intended to name those of  you who have made my job as  Pender Harbour Community  Columnist a pleasure, but  changed my mind because I  might forget someone and that  would be unforgivable. Instead,  I'll thank those of you who took  the time to tell me that you enjoy^ something I'd written or  simply enjoyed reading Pender  Patter each week. I also thank  the critics who were interested  enough in what I wrote to set  me straight. I hope that all of  you will continue to visit me at  the Paper Mill.  With the Coast News no  longer at the Paper Mill,  classified ads will be placed at  AC Building Supplies and  Marina Pharmacy. Photo  reprints can be ordered and  display ads arranged through  the Sechelt or Gibsons offices.  Ann Cook is still the Pender-  Egmont photographer.

The Irish have a  tale about the origin of the jack-  o'-lantern. It seems that a man  called Jack was unable to enter  heaven because of his miserliness. He could not enter hell  because he had played practical  jokes on the devil, so he was  doomed to walk the earth with  his lantern until Judgement  Day.  Whatever   your   favourite  superstition about Hallowe'en,  have a safe one and look out for  the little ones.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEAN  Jean Robinson had a birthday on October 25.1 won't say  which one, but it's a big 'O'. A  family celebration was held in  town on the weekend. Happy  Birthday from everyone in  Davis Bay.  ENVIRONMENT  At the beginning of the  month I decided to do my bit to  help save the environment. I  started to leave the car at home  and take the bus, but because  the last bus going towards Gibsons is 3:30 pm and too early  for me, I walk home if I don't  get a ride.  Now, 1 may be saving the environment, but what am I doing  to my health? Breathing the  fumes of the cars can't be good  for me, not to mention the  physical danger.  If you walk on the side facing  the traffic there isn't much  room to walk, it's very uneven  and slanted. The other side isn't  much better. Now I understand  why Ruth Biggars gets a bee  under her biker's helmet!  I think more of us should  take up the cause and, if we  can't get anything accomplished  now, we can at least get the  planners putting some solutions  into plans for the future.  A seawalk or a bikers path  should be looked at very  seriously. It may be costly, but  there's no alternative that I can  see if we want the world to be  around for our children and  grandchildren.  GOOD CITIZEN  Congratulations to Joyce  Kolibas who was selected its  Sechelt's Good Citizen of 1990  by the Sechelt and District  Chamber of Commerce.

EGMONT NEWS  Egmont buzzing underneath  Child's view of retirement  by Joyece Ostry  A child's view of retirement.  Small children have a view of  life that we have long passed.  Thanks to the person who  handed me this child's view of  retirement.  After Easter break, the  teacher asked her small pupils  how they spent their holiday.  One little boy's reply went like  this:  "We always spend Easter  with Gramma and Grampa.  They used to live up here in a  big brick house, but Grampa  got retarded and they moved to  Florida. They live in a park with  a lot of other retarded people.  They all live in tin huts. They  ride tricycles that are too big for  me. They all go to a building  they call the wrecked hall, but it  is fixed now.  "They all do exercises but not  very well. There is a swimming  pool,   but   I   guess   nobody  teaches them, they just stand  there in the water with their hats  on. My Gramma used to bake  cookies for me, but nobody  cooks there. They all go to  restaurants that are fast and  have discounts.  "When you come into the  park, there is a doll house with a  man sitting in it. He watches all  day so they can't get out  without him seeing them. I  guess everybody forgets who  they are because they all wear  badges with their names on  them. Gramma says that Grampa worked hard all his life to  earn his retardment. I wish they  would move back home, but I  guess the man in the doll house  won't let them out!"

JL  I \PLT2m gREEnr i  i i  V  by Dixie Percy, 883-9206  To the outsider, things might  seem a little low key in Egmont  these days, but underneath that  quiet looking scenery is a  beehive of activity. A closw  look reveals people buzzing  around all over the place with  gardening tools or building supplies. There are projects on the  go everywhere, most noticeably,  at the Community Hall.  Last week, Egmont had 16  visitors from a student exchange  program. The students were  from all over Canada and India.  They spent three days here experiencing life in a small town.  Boy, did they ever!  On one of their days there,  they heleped out by working on  clearing the brush and burning  the old building behind the hall.  It was a busy day with one of  Egmont's biggest work crews  Flying for One Sky at Davis  Bay. -KnlShtridH photo  ever and they did a great job of  clearing and keeping the fire  under control.  The Hallowe'en Bash in Egmont last Saturday night was a  great night for all who made it  out for the festivities. I couldn't  get all the details in time for this  week so watch for them in next  week's column.  RECYCLING  If you're doing some recycling, there are some recyclable  items that the ladies of the Egmont Community Club would  love to see come their way.  Things like buttons or zippers,  pieces of fabric or yarn from  those abandoned knitting projects would be much appreciated. Drop them off at the  hall and they will be put to good  use.  There are some beautiful  Save the Children Fund cards  which used to be available in  Pender Harbour, but now can  be seen and purchased at Bobbie's Shoes in Trail Bay Mall in  Sechelt. The cards feature BC  artists and are printed and  packaged by the Sheltered  Workshop for the mentally  handicapped. For more information call Sylvia Duff at  885-4793.

Coast News, October 29,1990  Wells versus MacLarty Round two  CN: "Vandalism, p��ty crime  and substance abuse are on the  rise. How would you address  this issue?"  W: "One of the things we  need is some kind of an activity  program, so that people have  something else to do besides  hang out at the Shell Station.  With the Catch 16 program  we're trying to get a teen drop-  in centre going. One of the  things 1 stressed was a youth  centre in the community  centre."  M: "I don't believe that  recreation centres are much of a  deterrent to crime. In North  Vancouver they have (some  kind of) activity centre about  every five blocks, but they have  one of the highest crime rates in  BC."  CN: "What kind of creative  revenue-enhancers do you envision for Sechelt? A film festival,  DAVID WELLS  W: "I think some of the artistic things will develop by  themselves. But one of the  things that is needed is places  for people to stay. We shouldn't  invite a whole lot of people here  when there's not enough hotel  rooms for them to stay in. I'm  working to develop the airport,  and that's coming along nicely.  There's a new hangar bring  built, and a flight school from  Nanaimo which will be teaching  people to fly"  M: "I suggested two years  ago that we use the empty Block  7 as a summer-long arts and  crafts fair. That would make  pesople stop, instead of zipping  on through to somewhere else.  We've got to do something  about downtown revitalization.  When Teredo becomes the  highway, I'd like to see part of  Cowrie Street blocked off and  txcome a mall with sidewalk  cafes and things like that. But I  agree, we do need more hotels."  CN: "People come here  because they like the laid back  atmosphere, and how long will  that last if there's too much  development?"  "We have lo give a little.  Things aren't going to  stay the same.  -I*���* Macelarty  M: "We have to give a little.  Things aren't going to stay the  same. If people want to live  with very low taxes and no services, they're going to have to  live further up the peninsula.  Whether we like it or not,  Sechelt is going to grow and  there's not much we can do  about it. What we can do is  have long term planning and  goals so that growth is controlled."  CN: "Sechelt recently refused  the invitation to join the EDC.  Some people advocate one  government for the Coast.  Would you endorse joining the  EDC, and down the line, one  government?"  M: "You're talking about the  ideal. It may happen, but I  don't think so. When I was an  alderman, I tried to get Sechelt  to join the EDC. It was not  passed because of the wording,  but I think that could be worked  out. I think we could have a  regional library too. We have to  have better cooperation with the  Regional District and the Indian  Government District."  CN: "David...one government?"

There is a health plan that is  currently bring advocated right  now for all of the Sunshine  Coast which is similar to what  you're talking about, where all  the health people will be administered by one central body.  That is meeting resistance from  people who feel that they're not  going to get their input, they're  not going to have the ability to  say what they want to do. I  think I agree with Nancy. I'm  not sure if the one government  thing will happen for a while. It  will take some wise people to  understand the benefits that will  be gained."  CN: "Some say the starting  point is to bring about a change  in consciousness on the Coast;  to understand why it would be  good to give up rivalries. Such  as exists between Sechelt and  Gibsons.

W: "I think you might ask  the people in this town before it  was amalgamated into the  district as to whether they appreciate the idea of one government. There are a lot of people  in Selma Park who are quite  unhappy because they feel they  have been left out in left field."  CN: "Do you feel they have a  case? Are they better off or  worse off than before  amalgamation?"  W: "Part of the problem, I  think, there are some groups  here who are self-interested and  want to get their own way. Certainly one thing I will be dead  against is anybody but the coun-1  cil counselling the town. This  business of self-interest groups  going in and saying, i want my  road fixed', 'I want my  sidewalk...'. We'll do as the  people say, as far as I'm concerned, and not what someone  pressures me into going in for."  CN: "Are you suggesting  that grievances which individual  citizens have, shouldn't be considered as anything special?"  W: "No, I said they wouldn't  get priority, just because someone screams louder and the  squeaky wheel gets the grease is  not necessarily the fair way to  be. You have to look at things  and decide where your priorities  are. We'll be doing that, I'm going to set a five year plan..."  CN (to MacLarty): "Do you  have anything to say to that?"  M: "I'd like to see us go  almost to a ward system, that  we make an alderman responsible for a particular area, not the  area he lives in, so that (for instance) Davis Bay/Wilson  Creek should have an alderman  they can go to with their problems. It's 'pass the buck' for a  lot of people, they're told It's  not my problem' and it doesn't  get brought up. I think it would  work very well to have each  alderman responsible for a certain area. Then you could  phone your alderman, and he  would bring your problem to  council. He would meet on a  regular basis with the community associations in his area."  CN (to Wells): "Do you have  anything to add to that?"  W: "1 don't agree with that  idea. If you have some self-  interest group pressuring an  alderman and saying 'if you  don't get this done, you're not  going to get elected again'. I  don't agree with Nancy. She's  saying things aren't getting  done. The problem is, there  have been a lot of things done.  The parks have been fixed up, a  lot of positive things have t_n  done in the last two years in this  town. There's always going to  be disgruntled people who  didn't get what they Weinted,  but I think the majority of the  voters here are quite content  with what was done with this  town. I think this has been a  heck of a good council. Those  people who were in there were  very clever, very smart, very  hard working. I don't think  they did a bad job at all. If there  were really bad things going on,  I think they would have addressed them, and they did."  "/don't think thi,y did  a bad job at all."  -DnMWdb  M: "I didn't say there were  bad things going on. What I'm  saying is, if there were an alderman who was responsible for a  certain area, then that alderman  would make sure 'thA it's  brought to the various committees. One of the big beefs that  taxpayers have is that things  never get acted on. This way the  pan of the community with the  beef would make sure that the  alderman would report at least  to council."  W: "I disagree. I don't have  a lot of people phoning me up  saying 'you're not doing so-  and-so'."  CN: "Might there not be a  loss of continuity given the fact  that all offices are up for grabs  in November?"  M: "That's where your staff  comes in, that's why good staff  is so terribly important. You  can't expetct people who are  really coming in on a volunteer  basis to know everything there  is to know."  W: "Strange that you should  say that when you're talking  about reducing them."  M: "I'm talking about getting good people.'"  W: "Don't you think we  have a good staff?"  M: "No, I don't think all of  the staff is good. There's always  a place where you can  improve."

Harrison was referring to the  fact that Wilson is a nominated  candidate for Powell River-  Sunshine Coast in the next provincial election, as well as leader  of the Provincial Liberal Party.  "Mr. Wilson has been loudly  proclaiming that he expects  local voters to send him off to  Victora as a full-time MLA in  the spring", noted Harrison,  suggesting lhat this "...would  leave Area 'A' without regional  representation only six months  into a thrw year term.  "In essence", charged Harrison, "he would be saying 'I  might not be here, but vote for  me anyway. I find this more  than a little presumptuous."  Harrison added that "Either  this means Mr. Wilson sees nothing wrong with leaving us in  the lurch, or else deep in his  heart he doesn't really believe  what he's been telling us about  his provincial chances."

When I found out  Ihey were sponsoring candidates  I told them 1 didn't want to  have anything io do with it, and  didn't want to lx sponsored,  because I fell we're not into party politics here.  "If they want to endorse someone, that's fine. Endorsation  is a little different from sponsoring. To me, sponsoring  means putting ads in the paper,  getting money and so on, and  that's not right for Setchelt, for a  small municipality. Suspicions  grow, and they think you're in  the developers' pocket .and so  on."  CN: "Were you in any way,  directly or indirectly, offered a  sponsorship?"

M: "The Concerned Citizens'  Association also has a  manifesto, a constitution. We  sent it in to the papers, bul il  was newer published. One of our  points was that we would sponsor all candidates meetings."  CN (to Wells): "Is there  anything you would care to say  about Enough is Enough? Has  anyone offered to sponsor  you?"  W: "I've not been to Iheir  meetings. I informally met one  of the members who told me he  was in their executive. Aside  from that, no one has talked to  me."

Where affordable luxury has become a reality  You'll never believe you're in the heart of  Gibsons when you gaze at the acres of lawn  and trees which surround you. But the  glorious ocean and island views confirm  you're just two blocks off School Road.  Know friends or family who would-  =���Hke to move to the Coast?  Georgia Mirage has been carefully planned  as a unique and affordable adult communily, with the view?, tl$ .landscape and the  r..     ���  amenities  which  make  Coast  living  so  desirable. It didn't happen by accident...  IN THE BEGINNING...  Grorgia Mirage was 10 acres of forest when Art McGinnis  purchased it in 1989. Its Residential I zoning determined the  number of residences which could be built on it, but given its  prime location, Art didn't want to just sub-divide it into lots. It  deserved something spectacular.  ")us" cut it into lots? I couldn't do that," said Art in a recent  interview. "I'm not a 'developer' in that sense. I look at myself  as a creator. Besides, that wouldn't have been good for the  town."  Art's last two projects testify to his desire to incorporate  something unique into his developments. Marina Place in  Gibsons has 42 condominium units built around central, open  green spaces, like a 'village square', and featuring grape arbours, a fountain and pond with goldfish, a putting green and  a social building. Royal Terraces in Sechelt, where Art himself  lives, offers privacy on the waterfront in a central location, and  has a waiting list of would-be purchasers.  An has been involved in all the concept and space planning  for Georgia Mirage. He's spent countless hours developing  the landscape concept in order to take best advantage of the  gorgeous views and natural rolling acreage, and has become  somewhat of a self-taught expert after reading numerous  gardening books and incorporating over 100 different trees  and shrubs into his plan.  The enthusiasm Art feels for Georgia Mirage is reflected in  its design. Small clusters of from three to seven homes, ranging from one to three bedrooms, are each nestled in its own  individually landscaped, low maintenance setting. Almost  four acres of park-like open space provide not only quiet,  privacy and pleasant natural surroundings, but a pitch and  putt golf course with a series of lakes which have been tied in  with the irrigation system and which will be stocks with rainbow trout. The clubhouse has both a morning and an afternoon patio, pool room, media room wilh satellite TV and  bocce ball court, to make it a natural central gathering place.  Another of Art's unique design features is the incorporation  of a huge, 15 foot diameter sundial, surrounded by ponds. "I  may even put a fountain in," adds Art. Through his studies he  has calculated the exact orientation the sundial will require for  it to accurately tell the time at this longtitude and latitude.  Georgia Mirage is a truly unique housing development  which puts human values first and reflects the vision of a man  who takes pride in creating the exceptional. "I wouldn't work  on anything that was dull," Art states matter-of-factly. Georgia  Mirage is anything but.  This Mirage is real!!!'  Forty-eight spacious residences will be  clustered on eight private acres of green space  ��� thoughtfully shaped and carefully groomed. You can walk the kilometre of trails amid  lakes and stream; golf on the pitch and putt  course; play horseshoes or bocce ball with  your neighbours, or challenge your friends to  a game of shuffleboard or pool in the games  room. When your playing is done, the  clubhouse offers a media room with satellite  T.V. as well as lounge and patios for your  relaxation.

"The dam would have  destroyed the livelihood of the  fourth generation of apricot  growers. The electrical authority had calculated that the value  of the dam over a period of SO  years would outweigh the value  of the apricot farming by  billions of dollars.  "But 1 calculate the number  of years it would take for the  apricot crop to exceed the value  of the electricity, and it turned  out to be a couple of thousand  yesus."  Knelman proposed that the  base line of 50 years be scrapped, and a period of 2000 years  be used instead. "I pointed out  that this was a renewable crop,"  he said, "so that 2000 years  later, it would still be producing  apricots. The apricot farmers  chose to Tight on these grounds,  and they won."  Knelman spoke of a similar  experience when he acted for a  Mennonile community north of  Saskatoon. "There were plans  to build a uranium refinery  nearby," he said, "and the  community was opposed to it.  "The company invited all the  community fathers on an all-  expenses-paid tour to Chalk  ���River to show them all the  benefits of such a development.  They spent billions to convince  them.  "I stayed with the Mennonite  priest for the week I was in the  community, and I found out  that the cornerstone of their  religion was the idea that you  don't do something in the present that would jeopardize the  future.  "So when 1 appeared, I asked  the company to guarantee that  none of ** uranium that came  lat would ever be  n .ear weapon, ���  uuse a single lung  'Without that  guatuiitee, you would violate  the basic religion of this community.'  "The panel voted to stop the  plant, It was the first time they  had ever acted on the religious  impact."  "So," concluded Knelman  with a grin, "we have our victories."  Gibsons Council did not  recall the by-laws relevant to the  rezoning of Gospel Rock by last  Monday morning and a writ has  now been served against the  town. Developer Hayden  Killam intends to legally  challenge resolutions made by  council at its September 25  meeting, which defeated the  rezoning by-law and Official  Community Plan amendment  necessary for Killam's proposed  subdivision of his Gospel Rock  lands.  The case will be heard in  chambers in Vancouver on  November 6 at 10 am.  The town is making no public  statements in regard to the case  at this time, and any council  discussions will be in camera to  avoid prejudicing its legal position, Clerk Administrator Lorraine Goddard told the Coast  News.  Council will convene next for  an October 30 Committee-of-  the-Whole meeting.  Killam's lawyer, Michael  Welsh, had intimated an exten-  tion of the October 22, 9 am  deadline, set in his October 17  letter, was possible, but a further letter, faxed to the  municipal offices late on Friday, October 19, stated an ex-  tention was not possible as  Killam did not wish to endanger  his case against the town.  According to Goddard, the  fax arrived too late to allow a  special council meeting to be  called prior to the deadline.  Killam hopes to legally force  the town to reconsider the  rezoning by-law and to call  another public hearing. If he is  successful in his case, the town  will also be liable for any court  costs.  Although council voted to  discharge the restrictive covenant against Blocks 6 and 7 of  the Gospel Rock lands on October 2, a title search by the  town's lawyers shows Killam  has not yet utilized the  withdrawal, Goddard said. The  covenant allegedly assured the  town 18.5 acres of parkland had  the rezoning of the upper  plateau (Block 6) from the present R4 zoning to Rl taken  place.  Killam's plans for the plateau  call for a 150-house subdivision.

The Sunshine  Second Section  2020 Conference assesses the future  Environment the key  An animated panel discussion wis put of the recent 2020 Conference In Sechelt.  -Rom Nkholion photo  Reports to Council  Maritime History Society  meeting with difficulties  The site looks bleak, es,?ecia]-  ly with the winter rains settling  in, and the project is behind  schedule, but in case anybody is  wondering what is happening to  the Sunshine Coast Maritime  History Society's (SCMHS)  Discovery project in Gibsons  waterfront park, here is an update.  The work involved in making  the park area a usable space for  the project began on June 25,  and proceeded well until August  21. In that time the brush was  cleared and burned, the draining trenches were excavated and  a fence was raised for safety  purposes on the property's embankment.  At that point there were  delays which were, unfortunately, beyond the control of the  Society. The drain trenches re-  mained without gravel bed,  drainpipe and back-fill, a situation which remained until  September 4, when ground slippage began to occur. This  necessitated workmen being occupied to keep the trenches  cleared for proper drainage.  On  the weekend  of Sep  tember 22 and 23, a major  ground slip occurred and two  excavators were brought in to  clear the drainways as hand  clearing was no longer enough.  By the end of September no  further delays were contemplated and the requited  drain work was completed but  the delay and added expenditure  of machinery use in September  added up to $20,000.  The Society has been asked  by Gibsons Council to provide  an update on the project's progress every month. ,  by Rose Nicholson  The 2020 Conference held  last week in Sechelt featured a  panel discussion by economist  Richard Allen, environmental  consultant and planner  Catherine Berris, and Walter  Hardwick, professor of urban  geography at UBC. (For a  report on the opening speech by  Dr. Fred Knelman, see page 1.  Opening the discussion on a  positive note, Allen, chief  economist for the BC Central  Credit Union, told the audience  that BC is likely to feel little of  the effects of the recession that  is being experienced by the rest  of Canada because the economy  of the province, to a large degree, is tied to the US, Japan and  the other Pacific Rim countries,  all of whom are in a stable  economic position.  Allen went on to say that  some sectors of the economy,  notably the forest industry  (which is important to the Sunshine Coast), are experiencing a  moderate recession.  "But the forest industry is a  cyclical one," he said. "It's not  the first time it has been in a  down cycle, and it won't be the  last. It's just a natural period of  adjustment."  Allen reported that most of  the other areas of the BC economy are healthy, with tourism,  fishing, mining and housing  starts showing significant  growth.  BC too, he said, is attracting  an important part of the consumer population, retirees from  other parts of the country.  BEST SELLERS  "Who," he quipped, "would  want to retire in Edmonton,  when you could come to BC?"  and he added, as an aside, "I  hope there's no one here from  Edmonton."  On the other side of the  economic coin, Allen warned  that events on the international  scene, such as an oil embargo or  a large scale war, would naturally have serious repercussions  in this country. But even such  events could have their brighter  side, leading to the development  of Canadian oil resources and  the stimulation of Vancouver's  sulphur exports.  In planning for the future,  Allen said that it is impiortant  that BC, including the Sunshine  Coast, get away from the present situation of a resource  dependent economy.  "We need to develop more  manufacturing and other industries that do not create such a  heavy drain on our natural  resources," he cautioned.  He was critical of the GST,  calling it "a plan that was badly  conceived and badly executed,"  and predicted that it would have  a negative effect on the  economy.  Please turn to Page 28  Pipeline right-of-way  being damaged  Pacific Coast Energy Corporation is concerned about the  damage that off-road vehicle enthusiasts are doing to recently  restored Vancouver Island Gas Pipeline right-of-way.  The vehicles are damaging the revegetation and erosion  control work that Pacific Coast Energy has recently completed on the Sunshine Coast. With clearing and work on  stream crossings underway on the Vancouver Island right-of-  way, the potential for more damage in the future Is serious.  Pacific Coast Energy President Harvey Permack said that  the coining rainy season will make the freshly restored right-  of-way especially susceptible to damage. "Off-road and all-  terrain vehicles can rain revegetation attempts and damage  sensitive stream banks. We're appealing to those people who  care about the quality of water in our streams to stay off the  right-of-way until Pacific Coast Energy's restoration efforts  succeed."  A season's growth will add greatly to the right-of-way's  stability. Permack noted that public access to Ihe right-of-  way is restricted, as much of the pipeline route is located on  private property.  'SH'HHij        SECHELT  IpJJJi FIRE PLACE LTD.

We spend the remainder of  the day around the town's central mall, mostly at the  Museum. The curator informs  us that our presence here in the  50's qualifies us as Kitimat  Pioneers and she presents us  with commemorative pins. One  of the most prominent exhibits  is a huge photograph of the  original town council. Yvonne,  as Deputy Muncipal Clerk, is  the only woman in the picture.  "I've become a museum pie*ce,"  she remarks wryly.  Long before we leave Kitimat, it has txgun to rain and  the town, as we depart, looks  very much as it did in the damp  precincts of the past���a northern outpost crammed with  gritty reflections.  It's tomorrow and north  again now, into the country  above Terrace and a strange  area of volcanic .debris tailed  tlte Tsaex Lava Beds. Our way  takes us past the town garbage  dump, euphemistically described as a "sanitary landfill". We  turn in here, hoping to catch a  glimpse of a white Kermodei, a  rare subspeecies of black bear,  found in this vicinity. But we  encounter only human scavengers rooting industriously  through the trash.  Not far txyond the Terrace  dump, the blacktop abruptly  ends and we bounce onto a  gravelly logging road that seems  to deteriorate as we progress. It  is a 'live' road���in addition to  the uneven surfare���we are obliged to dodge loaded logging  trucks at regular intervals.  There are muddy patches and  the new Honda begins to acquire a patina of grime. We  press on through intermittent  drizzle.  Skirting lugubrious Lana  Lake, created by the long ago  eruption, we begin to see random heaps of lichen-covered  slag. Then we break from an,  aisle ot" screening trees and I get  my first teal look at the Tsaex  Lava Beds. They moonscape  out on either side of the road, a  lumpy chaotic desert of black  and bread-mould green. It is a  forbidding area, gangrenous  and strange as though the earth  Ims succumbed to some wasting  disease. Nothing will grow on  the ancient magma except the  lichen. It cloaks the volcanic  debris in unhealthy profusion.  Yvonne stops to take some  pictures and I walk out ova the  lava field. The ground crunches  oddly underfoot. It is like  treading on cinders covered try a  pale green blanket. The  tenacious lichen is gradually  breaking down tlte sterile slag  but it is a tortuously slow pro  cess. In places where streams  have deposited topsoil among  the lava heaps, a few stunted  trees and bushes have begun to  struggle up.  Scientists have estimated the  eruption that formed the beds  occurred around 1750. It changed the geography of the area,  creating new lakes and creeks  and rerouting the Nass River.  Several prehistoric Nishga  villages were wipetd out of existence and the calamity is widely recorded in local Indian lore.  The Nishgas believed that it was  a supernatural punishment for  evil deeds by younger members  of the tribe who had forsaken  the old traditions.  The lava birds were created by  several magma flows. They  cover an area 23 km long and 10  Ion in width. We drive on  through tne bizarre wasteland,  stopping periodically to take  photographs and check out certain striking formations, ragged  walls and hummocks of tortured rock, like the aftermath of  a nuclear war.  ��* Sechelt  /��) Legion  Branch 140  NOW FAMOUS FRIDAY NIGHT  $6.00 STEAK SUPPER  will continue for the month of  November.

During the winter we will  have informal Twilights (.drawing names from a hat).  Do's and don'ts of curling technique  by Harry Turner  This week, I would like to  talk about the positioning of the  throwing arm. The correct positioning of the throwing arm is  crucial for an accurate delivery  of the stone.  The throwing arm must be  extendi to its full length at all  times, without rigidity or tension. The stone is placed just far  enough forward to cause full extension of the arm. The throwing arm must be kept straight  during the entire backswing, yet  without any muscle tension.  Bending the elbow might  cause the rock to swing off line,  thus forcing the stone to reach  the ice late during the forward  motion, creating a balance and  timing problem. Conversely,  over reaching with the throwing  arm will pull the shoulder forward, forcing the opposite  shoulder back so the hips and  trunk may be forced off line.  During the forward motion,  the throwing arm must be ex  tended at a comfortable, easy  reach. Failure to keep the arm  straight during the delivery can  be summed up in one word  -disaster.  By now the seniors league will  be in progress. Seniors curl  Tuesdays and Fridays, if you  are interested in joining them.  November 2, 3 and 4 is the  seniors open bonspiel. All you  seniors, mark that date on your  calendars���it should be a fun  weekend.  We would like to get a juniors  league going, so anyone interested in running a juniors program should get in touch with  Gary Flumerfelt.  Park planned?

'- Chaster Road Firehall meets  School's opposition  Coast News, October 29,1990  23.  Hans to locate a satellite  firehall next to Cedar Grove  School on Chaster Road have  run into opposition from the  Department of Highways and  Regional District Directors are  looking for ways to solve the  problem.  At the October 23 school  board meeting. Area D Director  Jim   Gurney,   explained   the  situation to Trustees. He said  that the distance between the  firehall on North Road and the  area west of Pratt Road make  tlte response time to fires in that  area longer than it should be,  and it has been apparent for  some time that there should be a  satellite firehall in a location  that would give faster access to  that area.  With that in mind, the  Regional District bought a five  acre property next to the school,  with the view to building a  firehall, and also providing a  community use room that the  school and area residents could  use.  But the Department of Highways is opposed to the location  on the grounds that speeding  fire trucks could be a danger to  school children.  Gurney told Trustees that  Chaster Road provides the only  through access to the western  section of that area, and he  pointed out that fire trucks have  to obey the same sixed limits  that apply to everyone else.  Chairman Carol Adams  thanked Gurney for bringing  the issue to the attention of the  board and promised that it  would be discussed and the  Regional District would be informed of the Board's position.  *A*^^^aee*aa  Services  Director  HEATING  CHIMNEY  CLEANING  886-8554  -Cartlflad-  ��� Auto Propans  ��� Appliances  ��� Quality BB.

Leask challenges in Area E  After much consultation with  family, friends, business  associates and residents, Rick  Leask filed papers October 23,  1990, with the returning officer  of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District, to run as their area 'E'  Director.  Three years ago Rick and his  family finally made the move to  Gibsons (his wife's home town).  Having spent nearly 13 years as  a frequent visitor, he recognized  it as a fine place to raise his  family and would like to give  some contribution back to the  area he has chosen to call home.  He is no stranger to business  and management as he has been  involved in business for many  years, including owning a plub-  ing company in Vancouver for  five years, and has ebeen actively  engaged in a successful career in  real estate for the past two and a  half years. Rick is also the past  president of the CN Curling  League in Vancouver (1985-  1988) and has been an active  member of Plumbers Local 170  for the past 12 years.  Among the things that prompted Rick lo work for his  community is the lack of road  maintenance, signs and lighting.  Rick would also be looking into  the zoning of properties to  enhance low cost housing and  increasing the tax base. Rick has  always l>een active in his community and believes that hard  work, an open mind and listening to peoples' needs are mandatory for our elected officials.  Global education update  by Rose Nicholson  The unique Global Education  program developed in School  District 46, has now been in  operation for four years. At the  October 23 school board meeting, teacher Fran Jovick  brought trustees up to date on  recent progress.  Last year the focus was on  environmental literacy and the  students focussed their attention  on events for Earth Day. Five  hundred letters were delivered  to ferry authorities protesting  the use of plastic containers in  ferry cafeterias, an action  which, said ferry authorities,  was largely responsible for the  decision to return to crockery  plates and cups.  Students also organized a tree  planting project at Gibsons  Elementary School, an Environmental Fair at  Roberts  Creek Elementary School.  This year the Global Education program is concentrating  on social literacy which will help  students to develop into socially  responsible adults.  Christmas Seals  Communities across BC share in the $1.35 million goal for  this year's provincial Christmas seal campaign which raises  money for advanced medical research, health education eind  other programs of the British Columbia Lung Association  (BCLA).  For the Sunshine Coast, that translates to a goal of  $13,272, according to local association chairman Clara  Nygren, who adds that another purpose of the traditional  campaign is to increase public awareness of lung health  issues.  Shouldn't  your little blessing  know about  life's big one?  The best thing she can learn about the big world she's  discovering around her, is the wonder of discovering its Creator.  After all, isn't that how we discover ourselves?  Show your spirit. Come back to church.  The Anglican Church  For more information call 684-6306 24.

Editor:  Last week 1 read a letter in  your paper written by Joe Gibson under the inappropriate  heading 'Another view of  Tetrahedron'. He appears to  have travelled up the logging  road as far as Tannis Lake. He  wrote of his observations and  expressed his feelings about  what he saw. I have made this  trip as well but came away with  markedly different thoughts.  I firet went up to the  Tetrahedron Plateau before  there was (to my knowledge)  even a special interest group  such as the Tetrahedron  Alliance, or ,ne group that Mr.  Gibson belongs to. I went with  my two preschool boys and my  wife up what was called Jackson  Brothers Logging Road. We  passed the same second growth  forest as did Mr. Gibson and it  looked remarkably familiar - it  can be seen alongside virtually  every logging road in BC. The  trees are uniformly spaced as he  described it and we found it  somewhat monotonous.  We met no other people and  were simply exploring another  area with no other thoughts  than hoping to have a pleasant  outing. We were, as usual,  somewhat saddened by the clear  cutting but were struck by the  erosion at the higher elevations.  Tannis Lake, at that time,  had not been partially logged  off and we walked from it into  Batchelor Lake. In that short  walk we wwe bowlesd over by  the beauty of the area and were  almost instantaneously hooked  on it as a place to go to.  As a consequence we have  spent many subsequent  weekends there. My five year  old son and I hiked up to the  top of Mount Steele this past  summer, overnighting at the  cabin. We swam in two lakes on  the way back and it was the  highlight of this past year for  both of us. He wants to walk to  the Lake McNair cabin next  summer and so do I.  I got the impression from Mr.  Gibson's letter (hat he has no  further interest in visiting the  area. I can only assume that he  did not go past the clear cut and  into the old growth forest to experience what it has to offer. I  urge him to do so as soon as  possible and maybe then he will  wish he was a member of the  Tetrahedron Alliance and be  more understanding of what it  is trying to protect. This happened to me when I stood on  Mount Steele and one one side  looked down over a moonscape  of a brutally logged area and on  the other side saw the outstanding beauty of the forests  around Chapman and Edwards  Lakes. Then with horror I saw  the malignant track of a logging  road approaching Edwards  Lake. I suddenly felt that I had  to protect this area for me, my  family, and for all those who  find inspiration and pleasure in  such places, which are increasingly hard to find. I have no  reservations about sharing this  area with visitors who are  already travelling considerable  distances, to this unique reyjon.  I do share Mr. Gibson's  disgust with those who litter  such places. I find it easier to  pick up after them than to await  a lifetime for trees to grow back  after being cut down. For this  reason I am opposed to any logging in this world class scenic  area comprises of a high elevation old growth rainforest encompassing a half dozen  pristine lakes. It is a national  treasure in our own backyard.  Thus I don't really feel that  Mr. Gibson did view the  Tetrahedron area which the  Alliance wishes to protect and  his letter should not have been  labelled as such. I would hate to  think that his lettler was an attempt to discourage people  from visiting the area and form  ing their own opinions. The  Tetrahedron Alliance is to my  knowledge the only group  which actively assists people in  seeing this region because of  their confidence that once peeo-  ple experience the Tetrahedron  Plateau they will feel naturally  inclined to want to protect it for  future trips for themselves, their  families and friends, and for  visitors.  If people have to pay for such  tours, guided by commercial  operations, I am sure that they  will feel that it was money well  spent.  Ronald H.

Editor,  I have lived in Sechell 10  years now and my employment  has been primarily in the logging industry. I have also been  involved in the presentation of  one wilderness proposal and,  like most of my co-workers in  the industry, share a great  rtspect for the environment as a  whole. Lately I have become involved in the Tetrahedron  debate as a director of the Integrated Use Coalition (IUQ.  My reason for supporting this  group is simple -1 saw so much  misinformation being presented  to the public by so called "Environmental" groups, that it  nearly sickened me. In 1UC, I  saw a group of citizens  dedicated to providing helpful  and factual input into this and  other land use issues that will  face this province in the years to  come. Our group is dedicated to  presenting as much dependable  information to the public as  possible and then letting them  make up their own minds.  On the other side of the coin I  saw groups like the Tetrahedron  Alliance deliberately misinforming people in order to garner  support for their cause. I do not  mean to imply that all people involved with this group are not  sincere but perhaps are also victims of this dubious information flow from others in the  group, or perhaps they only  hear what they want to hear.  On the watershed argument,  anyone that has had anything to  do with major watersheds will  tell you that water quality cannot be controlled if you let people wander around at will above  the intake. Logging in watersheds has been done successfully by way of careful management and medical monitoring of  work crews. This kind of  monitoring would be all but impossible if the Tetrahedron  Alliance get their way.  Anyone with even a limited  knowledge   of   provincial  SHOP HERE!

YOU D0NT  HAVE TO BE  HAMMERED  TO BE  IMPAIRED-  ONE OF THESE  COULD BE  ENOUGH.  economics in BC knows that  logging is still number one for  revenue production for the province. The classic answer to this  that I have heard time and again  is "Oh, it's only a small area we  are talking about compared to  the total land area available for  integrated use". If you add up  all of these areas that are being  discussed or have already been  allocated for singular use, it  becomes a frightening economic  scenario. I submit that the people that say these things would  be the first ones to scream if  their taxes triple due to decreasing revenues from the primary  resource sectors. Whether they  want to admit it or not, a lot of  the money they spend is  generated by these conventional  methods.  Make no mistake, we are all  for a cleaner environment and  will continue to work towards  that end, but not without  careful regard for the quality of  life and well being of our  friends and neighbours who  have every bit as much stake in  this community and this province as we do. Acting on the  basis of emotion will not best  serve us or the generations that  follow. Whether certain people  on the Sunshine Coast want to  admit it or not, man's  presence here has been of  significant environmental im-'  pact and it will do no good to sit  ' in their wooden houses on their  cleared lots condemning logging  companies, mining companies  or anyone else, until they admit  that they are part of the demand  cycle. They are using a lot of the  products that these industries  produce, but are pretending  that if they could eliminate  "dirty industries" and replace  them with "clean industries"  everything will be all right. /Ml  you need to do is to go  someplace like Florida to see  just how clean the tourist industry is.  Only by working together  with rational concerned community groups, governments  and industry, will we bring  about the positive change that I  know we all want. Misinformation induced public hysteria  over any issue will not help the  community or the province.  Paul V. Tingley  Hell, No!  Editor:  While a lot of Americans are  singing "Hell no, we won't go.  We won't fight for Texaco", it  seems that a lot of Americans  with sons of conscription age  are making plans to send them  out of the country.  While Canada has not been  mentioned, we can take it for  ,,granted that we will get some.  They will be welcomed with  open arms by most Canadians.  L.A.

Send your entite to reach the  Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons by Saturday of this week. Last  week's winner was Melissah Charboneau, PO Box $6, Madeira  Park. BC, Axe 9.  Natural and cultural resources outlined  Drew Carmichael, managet  for the Garibaldi/Sunshine  District, BC Ministry of Parks,  recently released details of a  draft master plan for Sargeant  ���Bay Provincial Park which was  acquired by the provincial  government for park purposes  last spring.  "Since the spring, we have  been reviewing the site's potential development options, installing basic facilities and clearing the beach site for public  use," says Mr. Carmichael.  The Sargeant toy Society, by  invitation of BC Parks, completed a background resource  document for the master planning process in July 1990. The  document outlines the natural  and cultural resources of  Sargeant toy Park, the significant land tenure implications,  outdoor recreation opportunities and the planning issues  that need to be resolved in the  master plan.  The draft master plan has  now been prepared and is  available for public review.  Planning issue's addressed in the  draft master plan include the  rehabilitation of Sargeant Bay's  beach berm and wetland environment, the types of recreation activity suited to the park,  park access from Redrooffs  Road and the provision of overnight camping.  "Draft policies related to all  of these issues are contained in  the provisional plan which has  been prepared by BC Parks,"  adds Carmichael.  The master plan stresses the  importance of Sargeant toy  Provincial Park to residents and  tourists of the Sechell Peninsula.  Resource management initiatives include: protecting the  park land base by acquiring  foreshore and peripheral properties; enhancing the park's  wetland environment for  vegetation and wildlife habitat  by initiating marshland  rehabilitation proprosals.  Visitors services management  initiatives include: providing  safe vehicular and pedestrian  access from Redrooffs Road;  developing picnic sites along the  ���beachfront; providing nature  trails and wildlife viewing opportunities; and providing overnight camping opportunities.  For public viewing, BC Parks  has supplied copies of the draft  plan to both the Sechelt Public  Library and the government  agent's office. Alternately,  copies can be obtained by phoning the BC Parks office in  Squamish (898-3678).  Carmichael invites further  public involvenwnt. "All interested persons are encouraged  to review the plan in preparation for an open house which I  will be hosting on November 8  at Rockwood Centre. The open  house is designed so that people  can drop in anytime .between 3  and 9 pm to reivew the draft  plan, discuss its contents with  BC Parks managers and planners, and leave their comments  and responses to the plan's proposals.  All public comment will be  considered in preparing the Final  master plan. For those unable  to attend the open house, comments may be addressed to: BC  Parks, Sargeant Bay Plan, Box  220, Brackendale, BC VON  I HO.  2020 discusses our future  Continued from Page 17  Allen cautioned against falling into what he called "the  psychology of recession," the  situation where the general  population begins to think in  terms of a recession, and slowly  clamps down on spending. "If  that happens," he said, "I'll  guarantee it, you'll put yourself  into a recession."  Ending on a positive note,  Allen foresees a bright economic future for BC. "We have  a diversified economy, we have  a tremendous advantage in our  position at the gateway to the  Pacific Rim countries.  "We have a stable government, and though some would  argue that point, compared to  countries where they run their  politics at the point of a  gun���we are stable.  "The real challenge we face is  to use what we have now. We  need to diversify our industrial  strength, and to achieve that we  have to plan for it. We have to  get away from the practice of  planning only 'til the next election. We should be planning for  the next 30 years.   "The most important point  in all of this, - we have to protect the fragility of our physical  environment."  Environmental consultant  Catherine Berris also stressed  the importance of planning and  the urgent need to protect  nature's ecosystems.  "There's still so much we  don't know (about natural processes)." she said. "We have to  be very careful in our planning  and maintain flexibility and  respect for the environment."  Berris us��l the example of  the recently completed three  year study of Sechelt Inlet  undertaken by her company  and the Foreshore Advisory  Task Force (FATF) as a model  of the way people from several  different agencies can cooperate  and come up with a workable  planning strategy.  "One of the most important  things about this study was that  it happened at all," she said.  "Most communities have nothing like the FATF. It (the study)  came out of this region itself, it  was completely generated local  ly. In provincial policy, there is  no structure for Coastal planning.  "The planning system is now  in place, so any future problems  can more readily be solved."  Professor Walter Hardwick,  discussing the need for planning  for population growth, agreed  with Berris on the importance  of involving a wide cross section  of the community in the planning process.  Commenting on projected  estimates of population increases, Hardwick suggested  that figures which foresee  growth that is twice, or even  five times the present figure,  could be much too conservative.  "I think it may be reasonable  to say it could increase by 10  times," he said.  Hardwick was basing his conclusion on statistics which show  that the population of BC is increasing at a rate faster than the  rest of Canada, and with the  most rapid growth in North  America.  He agreed with Allen that BC  is becoming a retirement choice  for people from the rest  these people are settling in Victoria, White Rock, the Okanagan and the south eastern  coast of Vancouver Island.  "The next choice is the Sunshine Coast," he added.  Most of the newcomers tend  to be urban-based, in contrast  to those who were attracted to  rural areas 60 and 70 years ago.  The Sunshine Coast, with its  modern facilities and cultural  and social attractions will undoubtedly be the destination of  choice for many.  Hardwick presented what, to  many local residents, may be a  shocking scenario, that as far as  land area is concerned, the  Coast could support a population the size of Vancouver.  ''The people are probably going to come," he cautioned. "It  is important to anticipate them,  and look 30 years ahead, and  set aside now sensitive areas that  you want to preserve. That will  take vision, consensus and bold  leadership on the part of politicians."  A picture ia worth...
