BRIEFS  Traffic accident claims life  Thirty-four year old Martin Carmen of Redrooffs Road was  killed in a one vehicle accident, just off Redrooffs Road near  Sargeants Day on Wednesday afternoon. RCMP are investigating  the Incident.  Sechelt man missing  A West Sechelt resident went missing on East Trail Island last  Thursday morning, prompting a search by RCMP, Coast Guard,  and rescue personnel. Helicopters were called in to help locate  the man but he had not been found as of deadline Friday.  Airport improvements announced  Lyall Hanson, Minister of Transportation and Highways, and  MLA Harold Long, announced last week, a contribution of up to  $168,000 to the District of Sechelt for Improvements to the  Sechelt Municipal Airport. Funding will be provided through  the provincial Air Transport Assistance Program (ATAP).  "This contribution will help the District with the cost of fencing the airport property to reduce the risk of wildlife Intrusions  on the runway,: said Hanson. "Sechelt also intends to carry out  an airport development plan for the facility, which serves the  (iihsons - Sechelt area of the Sunshine Coast," said Long.  British Columbia's Air Transport assistance Program provides  financial help to community airport operators, with the objective of Improving air access to all areas of the province.

A growing number of permit applications for development and  foreshore tenures, and a lack of information on possible environmental impacts of the various development proposals, has given urgency to the new study.

Phase two will be the development of a planning framework based on the planning information and public input  Committee member Diana  Davidson advocated that the  scope of the study and the  makeup of the committee  should be expanded.  "The Ministry of Forests, and  perhaps other Ministries too,  have had a strangle hold on this  committee," she said, suggesting  that the committee include  more members of the public.  District Forester Harry  Mountain cautioned against involving too many special interest groups which, he said,  "...could slow the process  down.  "I don't think our Ministry  would be willing to participate  under those conditions."  In order to achieve public  input in the most effective way,  committee chairman Gordon  Wilson suggested letters go out  to all groups and organizations,  inviting ihem to nominate  members.  It was also suggested lhal,  because the major areas of the  sludy included islands, the entire islands he studied, rather  than only the 2(H) metre strip  along the shore, as was the case  in die Sechell Inlet study.  "If this committee is not going  to be utterly irrelevant a year  from now, and particularly Five  years from now," concluded  Davidson, "it should lie taking a  look at the entire thing in terms  of the catch words (sustainable  development) which are discussed in the Round Table. We  need a different frame of reference so we are looking at this  fragile area not simply for the  way it can be used now, but  also In the future.  The real questions are: How  do those areas fit into the future? What do people and government agencies want for the  future? How can the various interests be addressed so there can  still he sustainable development?  This (the Sechelt Inlet study)  Is essentially a document on the  basis of what Is.

The board's objective is lo  break even. Without making  these adjustments', the hospital  would be facing a deficit of  $250,000.  "We ask everyone to cooperate with us hy using the hospital's services only when necessary," the board chairman said,  "that way we can be sure the  people most needing help can  gel it quickly."  Hospital staff were stunned  by the news because of the sudden action, most did not yet  know how the action would affect diem.

Revitalization moves ahead  Members of the Sunshine Coast Amateur Radio Society held  their annual field day last week. Rose Nicholson photo.  Sechelt Council has reaffirmed its commitment to proceed with the 'first st.igc' of downtown revitalization for  the village core (a project now referred lo as 'Cowrie  Street Beautification' (CSB).

President of the BC  Association ol optometrists.  Concerned with previous reports of eye injuries to large  numbers of eclipse-watchers,  Dr llissonnelte added that sunglasses, exposed film, welder's  goggles, and even "eclipse  glasses" using mylar sheets, are  not always suitable protection  against the sun's ultra-violet radiation  "The safest way for the public  to view an eclipse is on television," he stressed "Besides, this  way people can safely observe  the total eclipse, broadcast from  Mexico, in all its beauty.

'A similar service was provided in Nanaimo last summer  when the marathon went from  there to here."

Sharing  accommodations  Writers, artists, actors, musicians, - that sort of riff-raff-  have probably the widest experience of sharing living space  with other folk with whom they  are neither related nor romantically involved. Just for  convenience.  Usually such an arrangement  it comes about for economic  reasons.

It was a two-storey  place with fire places and a sun  deck, but it was what you could  call run-down. We put on a remarkably vigorous renovation  act, really.  We tore out a wall, exposed  a staircase, cleaned up a skylight, painted it all and buffed  the kitchen. With a fire crackling in our chimney we looked  out on Moor and Yonge, the  center of Toronto,.  But we had no kind of domestic organization whatever.  We had thought that inasmuch  as we were such reasonable fellows, everything would just go  creaming along, right?.  Not so. of course. We knew  food had to be handled, and we  had a box for receipts At the  end of the week we would  glumly sort these out and come  to a rough exchange.  IN A NUTSHELL  S. Nutter  Drink, though, was another  matter. None of us were what  you'd call toppers in a serious  way. bin there were friends  who'd drop round and they'd  drop round for drinks. Some of  them would be Tommy's  friends, some Milan's some  mine.  We had a hook behind the  bar to start widi, you see, and  all you did was jot down the  drinks consumed. Well, that  didn't go. We tried a cash thing  and that didn't work. We ended  with the rather shameful bit of  everyone having his own bottle  with his name on it. A bit pitiful, considering there were six  pubs within a block and a half  of the place. Mainly die thing  was to keep die place from being a mecca for party-goers. We  were centrally located and we  had no "Domestic General" as it  were to pacify and order the  troops. People dropped in in  groups and brought their musical instruments and were there  in the morning sometimes.  Ah. the joys of some kinds of  ibari-C  V Stress yourself out on me!

Stress is an anxiety-laden  cultural buzz word which has  liecn coming on strong for  years, calculated lo freak us out  for the nol particularly original  purpose of creating profit  through systemic paranoia. Most  adults are concerned about  stress lo some degree, save for  the dead! And, according to  stress pioneer Dr. Hans Selye,  complete freedom from stress is  death.  Stress is unavoidable and  organically necessary. Some  forms are downright  pleasurable. The word "stress"  means different things to  different people. Defining stress  is extremely difficult, which has  made it easier for corrupt  cultural shamans, working the  power-ofSuggestion side of die  street, to encourage us to  believe that all stress is negative.  That damn near every physical  symptom Is Ihe work of dirty,  nasty, implacable, unbeatable,  marrow-suckin', no favourites-  playin' stress  Horse pucky popsicles! It's  things like thai Stress! > Meier,  the rip-off stress books (The  Stress Management of Cuticles',  'Surviving Sexual Stress'), and  the pervasive, insinuating  influence of half-truths repeated  with authority thai does the  damage. Misinformation  Induces anxiety and paranoia in  people brainwashed inlo blind  acceptance of expert opinion.  All, but we are privy to the  dirty little secret of stress, which  is how much of it we cook up  within ourselves, how much of  die negative stress in our stress  stash is self-inflicted. Selye  emphasizes that mental  tensions, frustrations, insecurity,  and aimlessness "...are among  the most dangerous stressors'.  The chill factor here should  emanate from one's  contemplation of how the  above causes of stress apply to  you personally. The rcknowned  Canadian scientist enumerates  the various conditions directly  caused by stress, which include  heart attacks, peptic ulcers, and  uiihappiness.  According to Selye, most of  us equally dislike a lack of stress  and an excess of it. So each ol  us must engage in some self-  analysis in hopes of determining  those particular stress levels at  which we feel most  comfortable. You may enjoy the  stress that comes wilh riding a  roller coaster, yet run screaming  with stress after only a few  minutes spent on the back ward  of a psychiatric hospital.  Freud concluded that,  bottom line, the hallmark of a  healthy being is ihe ability to  love and to work. In Selye's  consideration of stress, the  efficacy of work is also  paramount.  "Your principal aim should  he not to avoid work, but to  find ihe kind of occupation  which, for you, is play. The best  way to avoid harmful stress is to  select an environment (wife,  husband, lover, friends, boss)  which is in line with your  innate preferences - to find an  activity which you like and  res|>ect."  I intend to delve deeper into  ���he miasma of stress in a later  column, hopefully to explode a  few myths and maybe delang  the beast a bit.  Hut first things first. After  logging a little more sea time  aboard the 'TRANQUIL EYES",  I've got a return match with a  mechanical monster that eats  quarters and spits out a dime's  worth of death and distortion  with every play.

Susan Murrav  Glue traps  inhumane  Editor:  I am disappointed to see a  local (iihsons store continues to  sell rodent glue mips despite the  fact that these arc inhumane and  are condemned by humane societies  While the glue traps' packaging literature may suggest the  victims die swiftly, often the animal's ordeal lasts for hours or  days It is suggested the trap be  folded and thrown in the  garbage - how long does the  mouse suffer before death releases it? Mired in glue, hair and  flesh may be torn from the animal's body Nasal passages,  mouth, eyes, ears become glued  shut - rlie animal may suffocate.  Starve or die from thirst.  Live traps, used in conjunction with mouse-proofing your  home (by plugging rodent entrances with steel wool and  keeping food in glass or metal  containers) are humane and  very effective in eliminating rodent problems.  On the subject of glue traps. I  would also caution anyone using the bright orange coloured  fly trap, which is a three-sided  stick)' cardboard lube A hummingbird, no doubt attracted by  the bright colour, was recently  brought to me. as a wildlife re-  habilitator, having been found  stuck to the paper The little  bird lost all of the feathers on  her back, her tail and a few-  wing feathers Gradually she recovered from her ordeal, her  feathers grew in and she was  successfully released a few days  ago However, the next hummingbird caught in this way  may not be so lucky  Lastly, as we are in the middle of nesting season, protect  our wildlife by refraining from  cutting trees, shrubs, etc until  Autumn and thus give the birds  a chance lo raise their young  safely and undisturbed.

Goldman  Distorted display  of humanity  Editor  The government that, year after year, cuts back on health  and education wants to give us  the Year 2000 program. This  program, 1 am told, has been  Uled and failed in the UK, New  Zealand, Australia and  California. A_ is typical with our  government, they see something  that looks good on paper, spend  millions of dollars on information and advertising, then hand  it over to someone else to implement.  How can a government that  continually takes money out of  a program, expect our educators to implement that very  same program, knowing that it  can only work if twice the  number of teachers and almost  as many new classrooms are invested in?  It also calls for competition  to be taken out of the schools,  so that each child can work at  their own pace. Now this is  great if your child is highly self-  motivated and someone tells the  rest of the world that competition is no longer acceptable. I  personally believe that healthy  competition helps to show one's  potential.  I find myself wondering if  there is not some hidden agenda  to move us back to the early  1900's, when there was no  middle class. The working class  was down-trodden and illiterate  and only the rich could afford a  good education.  Somewhere along the road,  we seem to have lost sight of the  important role that education  and educators play in the future  of, not only our children, but of  our society and indeed our nation. You need only look  around you to know of the fear  in the USA at losing yet another  generation to ignorance and  poverty and also easily see the  prosperity of nations that make  the health and education of its  children a priority.  I know millions are spent on  these programs, so I can only assume that cither it isn't enough  or it's poor money management  that creates these problems.  As Canadians we have sat  quietly by while our children,  the greatest of our natural resources, are being sadly failed  by our society.  Someone once said that we  get the government we deserve  for we are the government. If  that be the case then we had  better start talking loud enough  to be heard beyond our living  rooms and demand that the education and well-being of our  children become a priority.  Joan Disney  It's time to  talk loudly  Editors note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication.  Dear Mr. Smith, Superintendent  School District #46  This letter is regarding the  1991 yearbook for Elphinstone  Secondary School in Gibsons.  We find many of the pictures  and write-ups inappropriate. We  feel that this yearbook could not  have been edited by anyone that  is knowledgeable and in authority.  If the artwork and pictures  depicted in this book are any  indication of die type of future  adult being educated at  Elphinstone Secondary School,  then I fear we are in desperate  trouble. Nearly all of the "Art" in  this book shows anger, darkness and desperation. Many of  the personal quotes speak of  sex, violence and drugs.  It appears to us that these  "Art Students1' are being guided  by someone with questionable  interests. To allow such a distorted and garbled display of  humanity as a keepsake is sad  indeed.  Dave & Beth Dillson  Summer reading fun  Again this year the British  Columbia Library Association,  in cooperation with the Gibsons  and District Public Library, is  sponsoring a province-wide  summer reading program for  young people.  Summer reading programs  encourage children to read for  fun and to maintain reading  skills during the summer  months. Studies have shown  that library reading programs  are helpful in preventing loss of  reading skills during school vacation.  beginning July 2, children  can pick up reading booklets at  die Library.

Rob Buchan  Municipal Planner and Approving Officer  Hug a tree...   f  and a  trE-MMk  In last week's Time magazine there is an essay entitled  "Saving Nature, But Only for  Man", and If the blood pressure  of most environmentalists isn't  already high, then this piece  will definitely send it up.  Principally the writer, Charles  Krauthammer, who tends to be  evocative on most subjects, ar  gucs that non-sentimental envi-  ronmentallsm (ie: the "sane"  kind) is founded on Protagoras'  maxim thai "Man is the measure  of all things."  "Nature is our ward," he  writes. "It is not our master. It is  to be respected and even cultivated. Put it is a man's world.  And when man has to choose  between his well-being and that  of nature, nature will have to  accommodate."  In other words, man has  dominion over this earth If the  Arctic cariliou or the spotted  owl stand in the way of our  prosperity, it's too bad for them.  They are environmental  "luxuries" as opposed to environmental "necessities".  The entire essay is so contrary to my fundamental beliefs  as a nonspeciesist person - so-  called - that I had almost passed  out by die end of it. it took a  day to recover. Then I reread  the essay and almost passed out  again. If sane environmenialisni  is entirely anthropocentric, give  me a strait jacket.  But Krauthammer does make  a point worth considering and  that is: "...the only kind of envi-  ronnietualisni that will win universal public support, begins by  unashamedly declaring that nature is here to serve man."  This is a belief already entrenched in llie.ludeo Christian  religion and since it is hard  enough to ask people to sacrifice in the name of other human  beings, never mind for the good  of oilier creatures, perhaps it is  a principle we should follow to  save what is left of the forests of  the Sunshine Coast.  I'm not heing facetious lie-  cause, unlike one man I knew  who spent thousands of dollars  on saving animals while refusing to part with one penny for  human charities, in my love of  Mother Nature I am not misanthropic. We humans are, after  all, just a part of the whole. But  because my cultural background hardly reflects a deep  spirituality for nature, I sometimes fear I sentimentalize issues  when a more common sense attitude might have greater benefit.  For example: if we lived as  the indigenous people once did  on the Coast, carefully harvesting trees, nature could serve us  in that respect for a long lime to  come. But we don't, and little  remains of the original forests. It  would be nice to save every tree  that is left, hut then whal happens to the forestry workers?  A logger lives on my street.  He has a large sign outside his  house which reads, "This family  supported by timber dollars",  and a "Hug a Logger" sticker on  his truck. At our end of the  block, we advertise "Another  Voice for the Stein" and sport T-  sbirts decrying clear-cutting.  Before last week, the twain  glared suspiciously at each other  across Ihe road.

IHALFMOON HAPPENINGS!  -.R-ftFen-e-r,MB.2<:?6  It will be no time al all until  the Halfmoon Bay Country Fair  is upon us. All the committers  are busily planning the many  events scheduled to take place,  starting with the car rally on  Friday, July 12. Remember that  advanced registration is required hy calling Eunice at 885-  5180.  Salurday is tlie morning for  the kids' fishing derby from  8:30 to 11 am and you should  register for this (always happy  and popular) event. The D&J  Store sponsors this and do a fantastic job of making it a day for  the children to remember. They  give out hot dogs and drinks as  well as all sorts of little prizes so  that no child has to go away  empty handed. Tlie kids catch  some weird and wonderful sea  creatures and it is always fun to  watch them react when  awarded a prize for the  strangest fish, as well as for the  biggest, etc. Make sure you take  your little one along to that  event.  You should also be starting  to prepare for the various contests at the fair. The baking contest is also open to children up  to age 11 for cookies and from  12 to 19 for cakes.  The pie contesl is for the  adults with a request that ihere  be no cream pies or fillings. I  guess these don't fare too well  in the sunshine. Yes, there will  lie sunshine on the days of the  Country Fair!  There will be several contests  which are open to all ages, such  as the smile contest, various categories of teddy bears, horseshoe contests, volleyball contest,  and this year there will even be  bocci. Lots of fun and games for  the kids, such as races and an  Imagination Centre.  For adults there is bingo,  beer garden, arts and crafts  booths, and don't forget to buy  your ticket for the 50-50 raffle.  On the Saturday afternoon at  1 pm there will be a special  Invitational Tea for those in the  area who have contributed to  the Country Fair over the last 25  years This special occasion pays '  tribute to the fact that this is the  last 25th anniversary of the  Halfmoon Day Country Fair.  Don't forget to take the family along to the Family Dinner  on Saturday, July 11 where you  will be served a delicious baron  of beef with beef dip, salads and  dessert at a cost of $6 for adults  and $3 for children. Serving  starts at 5:30 pm and you are  asked to bring along your own  utensils and plates. It saves a  whole lot of washing up for the  good people of the Halfmoon  Day Recreation Association who  work ahrd at presenting this  meal.  Yours truly will be really  sorry to miss this year's fair for  the first time in 18 years. We are  off on a visit to Bonnie Scotland  to visit with family and do some  sightseeing at some of our old  haunts. We leave on July 11 for  three weeks and I will miss the  fun of taking pictures at the fair,  but there will be other photographers from the Coast News  covering the whole affair.  If, during my absence, there  are items you would like to  have published in the Halfmoon  Day column you could either  phone the information to the  Coast News office at 885-3930  or hand the copy in at the  Sechelt office on Cowrie Street,  remembering that Wednesday is  the deadline.  It was with much sadness  that we learned of the death of  young Martin Carmen this  week. Martin was a son of  Floyd Carmen, well known in  the music field in our area.  Our heartfelt sympathy to the  Carmen family on this tragic-  loss. Martin was only 3 - years  of age.

Feeding on  mushrooms of all sorts, these  mammals not only spread the  fungal spores but actually increase a spore's survival rate by  processing it within their digestive tracts.  Tlie deer mouse is known to  survive a slash burn, hiding in  its twisted tunnels where oxygen is trapped until it is safe to  emerge above ground. Upon  emerging, this rodent begins uie  process of reinoculating tlie soil  with beneficial bacteria and  fungal spores.  because much of its environment and food source  (mushrooms) have been destroyed by clearcutting, it seeks  the edges of the clearcut. Here,  along with chipmunks and  squirrels, the rodents make  short trips into the cut area in-  noculating young trees with the  spores necessary for life.  Trees around the edge of a  clearcut grow better, and that  just happens to be the distance  these small mammals travel at  night.  The flying squirrel feeds on  mushrooms, so it requires large  amounts of woody debris on  the forest floor to survive. The  main food source for the northern spotted owl is the flying  squirrel. Cougars, marten and  coyotes also snack on them.  And so goes tlie food chain.  The rotation concept in  forestry practice is an economic  concept we've adopted from  Germany and has nothing to do  with biology or ecology. The  forests of Germany are silent  forests. There are no birds  singing. All wood debris down  to small twigs goes up the  German chimney leaving nothing to support the bottom of the  food chain.  Change, however, in any society moves at glacial speed.  We're all doing the best we  know how, so let us he gentle  with one another.

This is done in the interest of  keeping people off social assistance and to help those receiving assistance enter or re-enter  the job market as productive  individuals capable of shouldering their share of what are usually regarded as "societal responsibilities" i.e., paying taxes.  To find out how these programs work and what beneficial  effect they might have on a  community, the Coast News  talked with Carmen Starhuck,  vocation counsellor for the  Ministry of Social Services and  the woman in charge of the  Coast's Employment Plus  Program.  Employment Plus is, according to Starhuck, "essentially an  on-the-job training program."  She says the goal of  Employment Plus is not simply  to find jobs for those reliant on  social assistance, but to match  employers with likely - if untrained - employees, in the hope  of getting those employees settled in die working world and  trained In a trade or occupation  suited to them.  "Ideally, our clients will find  permanent employment with  the company that trains them,"  she said.  Starhuck told the Coast  News that contracts between  her ministry and participating  businesses usually mn from two  to six months, but added that  those contracts could he extended.  "We can subsidize a wage for  up to a year," she said, "after that  Ihey (the clients) are pretty well  on their own.  "We assume thai tlie longer  our clients are subsidized, the  better chance they have of becoming good and appreciated  employees, and staying on Willi  the company after their contract  is up."  Starhuck admits there are  occasionally problems when  clients first enter the job market.  "If a person has been on income assistance, part of the initial job training could be simply  to make sure they are on time  and show up every day."  Starhuck attributes this to the  demoralizing effects of having to  rely on social assistance, saying,  "Most of our clients are single  mothers or single men, very few  are two parent families. A lot of  times they lack self-confidence  or self-esteem, but that can  change quickly with a good  work experience."  Starbuck said any kind of  business is allowed to apply for  the subsidized help, "as long as  the cmployei doesn't have the  client doing Improvements to  their own home. We're pretty  flexible and open to almost any  suggestion."  When asked if the Employment Plus program saved  die government money over the  usual social assistance costs,  Starhuck said, "Not in the short  term."  The cost of subsidizing an  employee is approximately equivalent to their usual welfare  payments but, in the long term,  "Employment Plus has, through  training and  ment, been very successful at  getting clients off social assistance altogether and into the  mainstream."  Starbuck mentioned that,  while Employment Plus was  only started in I98H, it has  grown greatly every year, not is  it a seasonal thing. Employment  Plus goes on year round - barring budget cuts - and interested  employers are invited to apply  for subsidized help at any time."  Credit card  facts  and figures  There were an estimated 51  million credit cards in circulation in Canada in 1990, or 2.6  cards for every adult Canadian  over the age of 18. Of those,  more than 23 million were Visa  and MasterCard, 20 million  were cards issued by the large  department stores and three million were gasoline cards. Other  cards, such as American Express  and enRoute, and cards issued  by small financial institutions  and retail stores, constituted the  remainder of credit cards or  charge cards in circulation.  The total number of Visa and  MasterCards more than doubled  from 1980 to 1990 - from 10  million to 23 million. In the last  three years, nearly six million  new Visa and MasterCards were  issued.

The  history  of  money  Provided by Neil Scribner,  Dislricl Manager, Bank off  Montreal  The first Roman coins appeared sometime before 300  IIC. What distinguished the  Romans from the earlier coin  makers of the city states of the  eastern Mediterranean was that  they ultimately created an empire that stretched across  Europe, North Africa and the  Middle East. Iheir law ran from  Ilritain to the Red Sea; from  Portugal to southern Russia.  Trade ran freely under the protection of this law.  Roman mints were established all over the empire. In  these mints exact silver and  bronze copies of Roman silver  coins, the denarii, were produced. ()ld coinages all hut disappeared. The benefits to trade  were enormous. '  The influence of the Romans  is still with us.  They set up a mint in London  shortly aller the conquest of  Ilritain. The sign for the modern  liritish pound, the .fc, derives  from this time and represents  tlie Latin word libra, which designated a pound of silver. Tlie  same Latin word gives the  Italians and the Turks their lire  of today.  Tlie break-up of the Roman  Empire brought economic confusion. Trade was disrupted and  transactions in money became  limited. Under the feudal system  that emerged, most people lived  in small, self-contained rural  communities. Darter returned  and wilh il, payment for services in kind, that is, with goods  produced within the community.

As  a result, gold became a more  popular medium of exchange  among the merchants of Europe  - an appealing alternative to silver. But silver coinage was  never to be endangered by gold.

"I was horn and raised in  Winnipeg, but I come from a  Southern baptist background.  "My grandfather was one of  the first slaves to travel the underground railway to Canada.  And the kind of music I loved -  tlie blues - was considered the  Devil's music!"  Ilowen's rich, purling laughter cascaded like hot molasses.  Growing up black in  Winnipeg in the 50'S was difficult, Dowen remembers,"... especially if you were thinking  about getting into music, as I  was. There was no support system for black music at the time."  Trained as a classical pianist  as a youngster, the seductive  blandishments of the blues and  other subversive forms of musical expression found their way  irretrievably into Gail Ilowen's  consciousness  Dy 20, she was part of an all-  female ensemble known as The  Feminine Touch'.  "Wc travelled with the Guess  Who and spent nine months on  the road doing clubs", Dowen  recalled.  Within a couple of years ihe  group disbanded.  "I went back to Winnipeg  and tried to work the nine-to-  five trip. I only lasted a year"  (iiving in to her calling, Gail  joined a group called Coloured  Rain ("We were heavily into  Joplin and Airplane stuff*) and  relocated to Edmonton.

great gigs!"
Today the singer makes her
home in Vancouver, producing
music shows to supplement her
earnings as a song stylist.
"Il's impossible lo survive as a
singer without a record," Dowen
notes forthrightly Now in her
mid-.O's, she's had plenty of
time to accept and transcend
certain once-painful realities
Describing her style as very
eclectic ("I hack phrase like a
jazz singer, but scream like
Joplin"), Dowen immediately
makes it known that she
"...hates labels, anyway. It limits
tlie music, and the appreciation
of it hy others."

Arts Beat
Wildlife Show
The Arts Centre's Annual
Summer Invitational Show this
year is "Wildlife Conventions
and Extensions of a Genre"
Wildlife art, as a genre, has its
roots in the Romanticism of the
19th century, when increasing
urbanization and more widely
available education and literacy
encouraged ihe idealization of
the natural world in the arts.
Wilh their variety of form and
habit, animals are convenient
visual symbols upon which we
project human values, altitudes,
relationships and goals.
Artists consciously employ
animals to present their own
ideas, casting ihem in allegorical
roles or using them as direct
metaphors in social or topical
As members of society all
artists are influenced hy
tradition, but their personality
determines whether ihey work
to confirm the prevailing
conventional values or are reactive to them, denying or questioning the transmitted standards.
Most artists partake to some
extent of both aims modifying
what Ihey have inherited to suit
their own purposes.
This exhibition includes high
realism, sculpture, and a variety
of oilier means to the artists
The show runs from
Wednesday, July .< to Sunday,
August ..

This session was followed by tests and the results  are as follows:  Genevieve Gelinas passed  her 1st Figure and Lee-Ann Sheel  passed her 3rd Figure.  In the Dance category at the  Preliminary level: Laura Weston  passed the Dutch Waltz and the  Canasta; Ashley Nanson passed  tlie Dally Dines.  In Senior Silver Dance: Lee-  Ann Sheel, passed the Kilian  Dance, and her Senior Silver  Freeskate; Brittany Decker attained part 2 of the Senior Silver  Freeskate.  In mid-May, three girls from  the Sunshine Coast Figure  Skating club attended the Delta  Sun-Cod Competition in  Richmond. These girls all skated  well against top competition  and can he proud of their efforts.  Lee-Ann Sheel, of (iihsons  came 13th in Figures and 9th in  Freeskate, which gave her a 9th  place finish over all.  At Ihe Preliminary level, Lissy  Darney, of West Sechell, placed  7th and Ashley Nanson, from  Halfmoon Bay, placed 10th.  The Sunshine Coast Figure  Skating Club will be holding its!  registration for the 91/92 season  on the weekends of September.  6 11 and September 20/21 at'  Trail Bay Mall, Sechelt. Our 20  week skating season will begin  on October 7 and end on March  13.  This year, before our regular  season, something new and exciting will be offered to our  more advanced skaters. For a  two week period, beginning  September 23, we hope to  schedule a Fall Skating School,  intended to give upper level  skaters, a head start on the season. Please watch for more on  registration and the Fall School  in late August.  Men's softball to be settled  The mens' softball season is  in the final weeks of the regular  schedule and there's still a lot to  settle.  In Division One, Cedars Pub  stumbled slightly in their quest  for first place over all. After losing their only game of the year,  they were tied 5-5 by Freds' in a  great seesaw game. They got  back on track through, by  squeaking one out over Ron's  Contracting then shutting out  Wildwlnd.  Trail Bay Sports kept hot on  Cedars' heels by beating  Wakefield 4-3 to avenge an earlier 4-3 loss to that same team.  Trail Bay and Cedars meet  once again Tuesday, July 9 in a  game that could decide first  place.  Wakefield is solidly in third  place despite the loss and will  probably finish there.  Wildwind Logging has  picked a had time to go into a  slump and will have to pick it  up to retain a playoff spot.  Fred's Autobody is playing  much better ball, of late, and is  holding onto the final playoff  spot.  Warriors are also making a  late charge, playing their best  ball of tlie season when it  I counts.        | ' Weldwood continues to  struggle and is now playing for  pride. In Division Two, Roberts  Creek stayed out in front, winning over Brewers and  Wildwind. They also kept  within Baysides' reach hy losing  to BA Blacktop.  Bayside also went 2 and 1,  missing a chance to gain ground  on the Creek by dropping a  tight 5-4 game to Fred's  Autobody.  I1A Blacktop closed in on  Bayside with three straight wins.  Gilligans stayed in the playoff  hunt despite dropping three  straight, but will have to turn it  around if they plan on any postseason action.  Brewers and Ron's contract-'  ing have both played well lately  hut arc unlikely to see any playoff action.  Focus  on  Fishing reports have varied from slow to very good.  Springs are still being taken all over the coast. However,  it seems people ate taking them all at once, or working  very hard. Pender Harbour has reported the most  consistent springs (10-20 lb.) . A lot of dogfish in the  middle.  Cohos up to 8 lbs. are starting to show. We've heard of  more caught in the last two days than in the last two  months. (But both of these figures don't reach double  digits).

Kay, who is stepping down from the office of  treasurer after some 21 years of  service to the society (17 of  which have heen on the  Sunshine Coast) was the Impetus behind tlie founding of the  Sunshine Coast Unit in 1979  and has been an active officeholder since.  Kay Hatcher receives a certificate of recognition from  the Canadian Cancer Society  for her 21 years of volunteer  work with the society.  Connie Hobhs, President,  expressed tlie group's appreciation to Kay for her faithful and  energetic service and gave her a  lovely corsage.  Kevin Webster, of the district  office, also thanked Kay, and  gave her a silver 20-year pin and  a Certificate of Appreciation  from  the  President  of the  Hug a tree  continued from page 5.  tricably bound up. Well, in this  case, the trees and Ihe men and  women who harvest them are  hound up together. We cannot  save all the trees but with a new  forest management program we  can save some of die trees and  therefore some of the jobs ten  years down the road.  And while a new method of  harvesting the trees might not  maximize profits, il might save  our community from tlie fate of  becoming a sleeping place for  Vancouver commuters by leaving a local working population  with something to do.  I will probably always be a  sentimental environmentalist  wanting to save nature for its  own sake and not fust out's but  at this point whatever argument  saves some of the remaining  forests Is all right witli me.  Hug a tree...and a logger.  order your  Iced tea  and  crystal light  drink mixes  Society, A. Rubin, which read,  "To Kay Hatcher: In grateful  recognition of services of behalf  of the Society to aid in its fight  against cancer,"   Kay will remain as an honoured member of the unit and  will continue her very active  service as a volunteer at Totem  Lodge.  Camp Byng gets face-lift  Tlie Boy Scouts of Canada Vancouver/Coast Region has received  approval of a $43,73} GO BC award to help upgrade facilities at  Camp Byng on the Sunshine Coast, MLA Harold Long has  announced.

Due 10 lack of transportation il  was necessary for ihem 10 hire a  boal at Pender Harbour.

Seeing one man very ill and being  lold lhat the other was steeping,  he at once suspected gas. He hurried inlo the cabin and found the  man unconscious, though still  breathing,  Mr. Funnel being a heavy man,  Ihey had some trouble gelling him  oul. When after considerable time  lie did not regain consciousness it  was thought wise to make all possible haste back to the doctor and  Ihe hospital al Pender Harbour.

The volume of sales in 1990 was $48  billion compared to $8 billion  ill 1980.  From I98S to 1990, the  number of merchant outlets in  Canada accepting Visa or  MasterCard Increased by SO per  cent, to over 750,000.  The collective outstanding  balance owed hy consumers on  credit cards lopped $13 billion  at the end of 1990, or $712 for  every adult over 18 in Canada.  Not all of this balance represents interest hearing debt. On  average, roughly half of consumers pay their balance within  the allotted grace period and  thus do not accrue any interest.  The accumulated outstanding  balance on Visa and MasterCards is niore than $10 billion.  Tills constitutes more than a  sixfold increase over 1977. The  outstanding balance on retail  cards is three billion dollars.  The average sale per transaction charged to Visa and  MasterCards increased from just  under $10 in 1980 to almost  $70 in 1990. Much or this increase was due to price inflation  over the period.  Approximately half of the  volume of sales of major department stores is charged to  their ill-house credit cards.  The current interest rate on  conventional consumer loans  ranges between 13 per cent and  IS per cent for amounts less  than $3000 and between 14  and 17 per cent for amounts  over $3000. ,  Information from  Consumer ami Corporate  Affairs Canada.
