Jod Johnstone photo  Legal aid  fees  lowest in  Canada  :       by Cathrlne Fuller  : Legal aid lawyers say they  can no longer afford to provide  services to clients except in the  most urgent cases, and on  March 14 the BC Branch of the  Canadian Bar Association  voted to support the lawyers in  their decision. As of April IS,  the lawyers will withdraw services from "non-urgent" legal  aid cases in protest over  "woefully inadequate" provincial government funding.  "The tariff rate paid to  lawyers in BC is the lowest in  Canada," Lome Paton, Area  Director for legal aid services  explains. "It's in everybody's  interest that the tariff goes up."  . Lawyers cannot be compelled  (o accept legal aid cases, and  many lawyers have simply stopped taking them. Now, with this  job action, only the most urgent  oases are likely to be accepted.  '.

The two-part resolution passed by the Bar Association also  says the legal aid lawyers have  decided to withdraw from cases  "...where ethically permitted"  except for clients in custody and  urgent family cases.  The whole issue becomes an  ethical headache, admits Lome  Paton. "The lawyers aren't  happy about the situation. If  you follow your professional  ethics down the line (and continue to handle legal aid cases)  you're playing right into the  government's hand."  Negotiations to raise the level  of legal aid tariff funding have  been underway with the Attorney General's ministry since  1982. The provincial government assigned a task force to  study the situation and those  Time to spring ahead  It's that time again!

Clearcut  logging  to go ahead  by Rose Nicholson  The deferral of logging on the  Edwards Lake cutblock in the  Tetrahedron plateau will remain  in effect as long as meaningful  progress is being made by the  Local Resource Use Plan talks,  and it is expected that the plan  will be complete by February of  1992, according to an  announcement by District  Forester Barry Mountain at the  March 27 meeting of the Forest  Advisory Committee (FAC).  Mountain also said that an  LRUP interim report would be  available for public information  and input by the end of October  of this year.  "If, in your view, progress is  stalled in February 1992," asked FAC Chairman Tim Clements, "does that mean the  deferral is not in effect any  more?"  "Not necessarily," replied  Mountain. "I'm optimistic. I  feel progress will be made."  Mountain also announced  <'v.t the Mount Elphinstone  LRUP (which lies between  Wilson Creek and Gibsons) will  be reactivated. The plan was put  on hold in 1988 when the Sunshine Coast and Powell River  offices of the Forest Service  were amalgamated.  "There were lots of budget  cuts at that time," said Mountain, "so the resources were not  available.  "By the end of May of this  year the Mount Elphinstone  LRUP will be reviewed by the  Barry Mountain  District Forester  original participating agencies  and will then be presented to the  public for review and input.  "It is our intention to develop  a core Natural Resource Re  search Area in an area still to be  determined within the Mount  Elphinstone LRUP. There will  be a lot of people involved in  that, particularly from the  scientific community, and from  the federal and provincial  governments. Outside of the  core area, operational research  will be conducted in the balance  of the LRUP."  Mountain went on to say that  cutblock number 32654, between Clack and Clough Creeks  in Roberts Creek, currently approved for clearcut harvesting,  will be allowed to proceed.  "The contract was signed  months ago," said Mountain.  "I just wanted to announce  that, in case there's concern  some months down the road  when somebody starts logging  it.  "There has been considerable  public concern (about that  cutblock). We'll be looking very  carefully at the logging plans,  particularly near the streams."  Mountain said that in addition to the clearcut, there will be  some commercial thinning in  the area, probably in 1992.  "The Ministry of Forests and  the Sunshine Coast Forest  District are planning to coordinate a trip for the local small  business logging community to  view first hand commercial  thinning operations in the  Boston Bar area," added  Mountain. It will give them an  opportunity to see the equipment and techniques currently  being used."  School budget deficit may kill jobs  funding recommendations were  made in 1984, but the government failed to follow through  on them.  According to Terry La  Liberte, president of BC Branch  of Ihe Bar Association, criminal  lawyers were donating aboul  $22 million in legal aid services  three or four years ago, and ihe  amount has only increased since  then.  "It is now time to act and bring pressure to bear," he stated.  "Legal aid must be funded at a  level that ensures low-income  people who can't otherwise afford a lawyer are provided adequate legal representation."  As area director it is Paton's  job to sort through the legal aid  applications and decide what  qualifies. The average of 35 applications per month he processes for this area is higher  than the average per capita rate.  However, he concedes, under  the job action definition or  'urgent' classification few of  those cases will qualify.  "I haven't really worked it all  out yet," he admitted. "I'm going to have to talk with the  (legal aid lawyers) association  and get some clear guidelines.  by Stuart Burnside  School district jobs may be  lost in 1992 to combat a projected budget deficit of  $826,000, according to Secretary-Treasurer Tim Anderson.  "The reality is that 85 per cent  of our budget goes to wages,"  he told the Coast News after a  March 26 school board meeting.  Anderson, speaking al the  meeting, said the projected  deficit represents an estimated  $130,000 shortfall for this year  (itself reduced from $256,000  through district cutbacks) combined with $696,000 the district  would need to maintain next  year's spending al current  levels.  The projected shortage of  funds is a direct result of the  amount of money allocated to  the school district by the provincial government under the current block funding arrangement.  Under block funding, money  is set aside for each district  throughout the province���on a  per student basis���with additional funds being appropriated  for "special needs" students  (approximately $1000 extra per  student).  The amount of money in trw  block fund is stationary, so a recent increase in special needs  students in the Vancouver area  resulted in a redistribution of  the fund for the whole province  as of February. This, in turn,  realized for District 46 a loss of  $256,000 well into the 1991  fiscal year.  "It isn't just this district  (that's affected), it's a province-  wide problem," a\nderson told  board trustees. He said, of a  meeting with the assistant depu  ty minister of education, "We  had no success talking about the  block funding..'.He gave us a  rather canned presentation  which essentially said, 'the  government doesn't have any  money.' "  To combat the shortage of  funds, for this year at least, the  school board has undertaken a  hiring freeze, will not hire relief  help unless "absolutely  necessary", and, among other  things, will cease all district funding for swimming programs  and district sports events. This  should reduce this year's deficit  from the projected $256,000 to  the aforementioned $130,000.  For 1992, however, more  drastic measures may be  necessary, people's jobs could  Tim Anderson, Secretary-  Treasurer of School District  46.  be lost. "We've got to have our  budget balanced by the end of  next year," said Anderson.  "Roo Acres North"  set for Creek  An Australian farmer's recent vacation on the Sunshine  Coast could well prove to be the start of a lucrative new  business venture.  Bob "Hopper" Deloof, a third-generation kangaroo  farmer, is presently negotiating the purchase of a 20 acre  parcel of land in upper Roberts Creek. Deloof plans to set up  his "Roo Acres North" in this location.  Deloof, who owns and operates "Roo Acres" in  Toowoomba, Queensland (just west of Brisbane) claims,  "The Sunshine Coasl b Ihe perfect locale for a kangaroo  farm."  Kangaroo meat is considered a delicacy In Australia, fetching up to $15 Canadian per kilogram. In addition to their  meat, kangaroo dung b considered the Ideal manure, due to  its rich, moist consistency.

"But it's not in writing yet,"  said teacher Eleanor Swann.  "We're still keeping our fingers  crossed."  Recently, District Superintendent Clifford Smith and  Secretary Treasurer Tim Anderson had a meeting in Victoria  with the Facilities Branch of the  Ministry of Education.  The Ministry had allotted  $1.2 million for a five classroom  addition to the school, but no  money for renovations to the  old building.  In an interview with the  Coast News, Roberts Creek  parent Ruth Emerson  enumerated some of the problems wilh the old school ���  three furnaces subject to frequent breakdowns, old fashioned and inadequate fluorescent  lighting, many windows of an  outdated type of glass lhat was  nearly opaque, four and a half  portables to house the overflow  of students, too-small office  and staff room, no computer  room, and "lots of other little  things."  "When I came here 14 years  ago we had 140 students," said  Swann. "Now we have 295  students and 30 teachers."  With new residents flocking  to the Roberts Creek area, the  school has been one of the  fastest growing in the district.  "Our enrollment is not going  to fall," said Swann. "Even  with the addition, we will just  be accommodating the children  we have now."  In lengthy discussions between school district administrators, teachers and  parents, it was agreed to push  for funding for renovations as  well as the addition.  In their talks with the  Facilities Branch, Smith and  Anderson were given verbal  assurance lhat funding would  be available by this June for  planning for both renovations  and the addition, followed by  construction funding in 1992.  "It will put us back eight or  nine months in our original  schedule," said Swann. "But  hopefully, by 1993 it will all be  complete."  Ami Moren, left, Caroline Stevenson, right, and Kara Quarry  (not shown) recently attended the Pacific Rim Conference in Vancouver. Joel Johnstone photo  Elphie kids join  Pacific Rim forum  Some time ago, Hethey  himself traveled to several  Pacific Rim countries, but it  was before the present program  was initiated.  "Now they want you to go  over there and really get involved in the culture of the area you  pick. They will set you up in a  small community, and you  literally sleep on the dirt floor."  Hethey gives the ministry  credit for developing an excellent set of resource materials  for teachers to use in their  classes. He also had high priase  for the recent forum.  "It was the first time it's ever  been done. It was well organized, the students were kept busy  from eight in the morning to  nine at night. You don't put in  that kind of lime at school.  "On the Sunshine Coast,  we're right at Ihe top of all the  districts in the province," he  said. "Many of our students are  learning Japanese or Chinese.  Nicky Tentchoff is going to  Japan this summer, Christy  Stoochnoff went last summer,  and Sean Pulchaski also went  for six weeks. We're sending  one student (to Pacific Rim  countries) from each of the high  schools on the Coast every summer."  Hethey also noted that recent  Chatelech graduate Geraldine  O'Keefe was one of 19 BC  students who were awarded  $20,000 scholarships to study in  Japan for a year.  In an interview with the  Coast News about her experiences at (he forum, Amy  Morern said that her discussion  group tackled such difficult  social issues as the relocation of  refugees, the status of women in  Japan, the need to understand  the cultural differences of the  different countries, and a host  of other subjects that affect the  relationship between all the  Pacific Rim countries.  "I learned so much���and it  made me think," she said. "I  realized that everything ties  in���the environment, overpopulation, economics, and the  social and cultural differences.  "But it was a bit frustrating  and depressing. All we discussed were the problems. We needed more time to find some solutions."  But the weekend was not all  hard work. The students saw  the film Blue Planet at Science  World, and attended a banquet,  the performance of a Japanese  ensemble and a demonstration  of taeko drumming.  by Rose Nicholson  Elphinstone teacher Robin  Hethey and his students Amy  Morem, Carolynn Stevenson  and Kara Quarry joined 300  other students and teachers  from all over the province at  BCIT recently to take part in  discussions on issues affecting  the Pacific Rim countries.  The forum, sponsored by the  Ministry of Education and the  Asia Pacific Foundation, in  cooperation with Simon Fraser  University and BCIT, was the  brainchild of Surrey teacher  Bruce Seney.  Seney, who was involved in  writing the ministry's Pacific  Rim resource book that was introduced into classrooms last  fail, said that students weren't  expected to come up with actual  solutions to problems, but the  forum would give them an opportunity to "understand the  complexity of the issues, and  come to realize that simple  answers to complex questions  not only fail to solve some problems, but may actually  perpetuate them."  The students focussed their  attention on such issues as peace  and security, the environment,  economics and social issues,  and heard presentations by experts from SFU, UBC, UVic  and Capilano College.  Panel discussions were  moderated by SFU's Dr. Jan  . Walls, Kevin Evans of CBC,  Crawford Killian of Capilano  College, Isobel Kelley of the  Ministry for Women's Programs and Jim Carney of the  Knowledge Network.  Smaller groups split up for  in-depth discussions on specific  issues, and for the teachers it  was an opportunity to become  familiar with a new teaching  strategy for the Year 2000 curriculum.  The forum was also attended  by principals and teachers from  all across Canada, and in an interview with the Coast News,  Robin Hethey said that conversations with these educators  made him realize that BC is  "miles ahead of the rest of the  country" in developing Pacific  Rim programs in the schools.  "Not only does BC send  students and teachers over  there," he said, "they (the  Ministry of Education) are also  planning to send teachers for in-  service, in-depth training to  South East Asia���Thailand,  Hong Kong, Malaysia and  Singapore."

Row Nicholson photo  In the past two weeks, Conservation Officer Doug Pierce  has received several complaints  of dogs chasing deer.  During the winter and spring,  deer are forced to come close to  civilization in search of food.  Unfortunately, they encounter  unattended dogs. The dogs may  then chase the deer until it is exhausted, then kill it. It is not a  pleasant sight.  Dogs may chase a female  deer to the point where she has  exhausted so much energy that  she aborts her unborn fawn. In  late spring (May) when the  fawns are bom, marauding  dogs may cause the doe to be  separated from her fawn. If the  dogs chase the doe far enough,  she may never find the fawn,  and it will die.  Pierce is warning rural  residents to keep their dogs  under control. The Wildlife Act  makes it unlawful to allow your  dog to pursue deer. A fine of  $100 can be given to the owner  for the first offence. Several dog  owners have already been warned. Conservation officers are  legally permitted to destroy  dogs found harassing wildlife.  Pierce is also reminding  residents not to pick up deer  fawns that appear to be abandoned by their mothers. Usually  the mother is not far away, and  i will return as soon as she feels  there is no danger. '  From Our Files  We Remember When  5 YEARS AQO  The Town of Gibsons  agreed to allow businesses offering bed and  breaklast in all residential  zones.  Sechelt went even further, allowing two units  per house. The Regional  District, however, had no  contingency for bed and  breakfast and in some  residential zones it has  been disallowed altogether.  10 YEARS AGO  Eighty women attended  the conference organized  by the Sunshine Coast  Women's Program at St.  Hilda's Hall in Sechelt last  Friday and Saturday.  Despite a study, funded  and carried out by the  Heritage Conservation  Branch of the Ministry of  the Provincial Secretary  establishing the existence  of more than 30 ar-  cheologlcal sites on the  southern end of Hardy  Island, logging operations  will probably go ahead.  The Inaugural Royal  Hawaiian World Soccer  Crown Tournament was  held in Hawaii from March  23 to 28; Ihe Sechelt  Renegades were a resounding hit at the opening  ceremonies when they  marched onto the field in  their native headdress and  regalia.  15 YEARS AGO  Contract negotiations  between BC Ferries  employees and representatives of the provincial  government came to a  stand still last week after  both union and management agreed that no settlement could be reached  on a number of points. An  anonymous union member said ferry workers  don't want to strike but  the contract proposals  may force a show-down.  25 YEARS AGO  Rising food prices are  not only disturbing  housewives but have food  merchants wondering  when increases will level  off and settle down for a  period.  Gibsons Council decided to defer further consideration of the extension of village boundaries.  They had considered the  possibility of taking in  Reed Road at Grantham's  as far as Henry Road then  along the highway to Pratt  Road and down to the  water line.

Joel Jo-mom photo  Art & Science  at either end  lously with only the very  sharpest of pencils.  And then there you'd be 600  miles out over the Atlantic and  what would you be doing?  You'd be gazing wisely out into  the clouds and thinking, "Hey,  this system is maybe moving  faster than we thought." You'd  be interpolating in all directions  in your head. You'd be some  kind of artist in fact, and with  maybe only a minimum of lines  on the chart.  The question of course as i,  has been for at least 2500 years,  is whether life is more an art or  more a science. We have moved  extraordinarily to the science  side. It shows in everything. It  shows in our writing.  I find it possible to see writing  as a spectrum. At one end, the  far left I think, there is poetry  and at the other end science  writing. I don't mean sci-fi of  course, but the writing of people who think that life is a  science. The country where, if  something is going to happen.it  is going to eventuate.  There are gradations of  course all the way, and if you  have this graph in mind you can  tell often in a couple of  sentences just where this or that  writer falls. And that can tell  you quite a lot.  The question of whether we  think life is more a science or  more an art may be the biggest  question we have on our plate,  and that is saying a lot. Do we  think really that we can explain  everything? Are we going to  press on teaching our children  that everything is dedded and  organized for them? Or are we  going to go back to the ideas  that life is always different, that  children should be brought up  to think for themselves in their  own particular world?  We have gone a long way  with our ideas of life as science.  We even think now that we can  run the country, or the world  perhaps, by counting heads in  polls. Maybe we ought to give  this a little, not necessarily  scientific, thought.  IN A NUTSHELL  S Nutter  A lot of things are talked  about as being 'arts', or in the  same breath almost as being  'sciences'.  Home Economics for example is taught as a science but  homemaking is an art isn't it?  Political Science has been a  popular course at universities  since the thirties. Joe Clark took  it, but politics is an art surely to  God, the an of the possible  right?  The two things, art and  science, are not only different,  they are just about as different  as they can be. On the one hand  you have a total belief that  everything involved can be  measured, or weighed, or otherwise formularized so that if you  can count, or know which button to press, you will get,  always, exactly the right answer,  and that will be it.  On the other hand, you have  the point of view that all this is  pretty well a bunch of buffoonery. "What can we  know?" the artist is likely to be  thinking, though he is not likely  to be saying it much these days.  A case in point, from my experience, was air navigation. In  air navigation you got these exhaustive courses. You knew exactly the extent to which your  very charts were inaccurate.  You knew how the light from  the distant star refracted  through your plexi-dome. You  knew all the little inaccuracies  that lurked in almost all your instruments.

Jod Johnstone photo  Mental health housing critical  by Rose Nicholson  "There's a critical need here  for care families for mental  health patients," said Mary-  Belle Bulmer, director of the  Mental Health Centre. "For the  last year we have been trying to  recruit homes for up to two  people, but so far we have  drawn a blank."  The type of situation that  Bulmer and her staff at the Centre are looking for is a private  home where mentally ill patients  can live relatively independently, but still have the support of  the care family and the backup  of the staff at the Centre.  Such a situation, when it is  available, is very effective, and  much preferred to the old institution type of care that was  common many years ago.  "Funding is available for  this," said Bulmer. "It's not a  way to get rich, but it's certainly  adequate."  Living conditions now for the  people who are battling mental  i��m**�� y  atlas  OFFICE SOLUTIONS LTD.  5511 Wharf St., Sechelt  Phone 6854489 Fax 885-4696  problems often mean living with  relatives, or trying to make it on  their own in substandard shacks  or cottages.  "It can be a very stressful  situation," said Bulmer, "particularly for the families. We try  to provide as much support as  we can, but often we're giving  only band-aid solutions."  Other alternatives that  Bulmer may be forced to look  at are either boarding homes or  semi-independent housing for  groups of three or four people.  Bulmer said those alternatives  are generally not favoured by  either the patients or their  families, because the patients  often become stigmatized in  such situations.  Bulmer makes a careful  distinction between the mentally  handicapped and the mentally  ill. She said that the mentally  handicapped are the responsibility of the Ministry of Social  Services and Housing who do  provide group homes ���  whereas her Ministry (Mental  Health) cares' for those are suffering from mental illnesses like  schizophrenia, manic depression and similar illnesses.  Part of the problem is the  perception on the part of the  public that the mentally il! person is difficult or even violent,  but Bulmer says this is seldom  the case. "Most of the time,"  she said, "these people are very  quiet and gentle. They just need  lots of support."  Bulmer is hoping that better  understanding will induce more  members of the public to open  their homes to these patients. If  this doesn't happen, she may be  forced to send those who  desperately need help to  facilities on the Lower  Mainland, or go the boarding  home or group home route,  "but it's much less desirable,"  she said. "These people  want,and need to be independent.  "We need to find some way  of providing support here. We  need homes, and there needs to  be a public awareness and  knowledge about mental  illness."

This is the  second week in a row I am  writing about food. If we're all  lucky, it will be the last. There's  an obsessional tendency among  dieters (of which 1 am not one,  officially) and other religious  types which impels them to  share the gory details of their  grand passion with absolutely  everyone and in the most  microscopic detail possible.  Fortunately for you, I pretty  much have this annoying and  more than vaguely anti-social  neurotic trait under control for  good. My religion is wildly  idiosyncratic and utterly nontransferable, while the urge to  keep the world abreast of the  moment-to-moment benumbing  minutiae of my personal life  started dying the first time I  realized the world didn't care  doodly squat. Some things die  hard.  Like the craving for carbohydrates, for one. I've never  been much of a protein freak,  and I've never run across a  man, woman or child who had  a weight problem stemming  from an insatiable craving for  vegetables. No, I'm King Car-  bo, lead singer of the Car-  boholics, featurin' Sugarbuzz  Pantry, Hot LaCrosse Buns,  Breadfruit Molasses and the rest  of our glucose-fixated, intermittently glutanous crew.  During the past seven days I  haven't suffered as much as the  tone of this column might suggest, but neither, I should  hasten to add, has il been what  you could call an ant-free picnic. The most important insight  to surface so far (and not for  the first time, if you get my  drift) bubbled up 10 days ago.  I had cubed half an apple and  arranged the bitty bities on a  small plate (small plate equals  less food), then added mini-  mouse niblets of Jalapeno Jack  cheese. I was eating a raw radish  at the time, and had just polished off a carrot. The phone rang.  I slipped the plate into the  fridge, glancing wistfully at the  little flecks of green pepper  embedded in my cheese.  Ten minutes later I realized  that I'd forgotten about my  lunch. I headed for the kitchen.  FROM THE HIP  J.M. Sherman  but never made it that far. I  wasn't hungry. At least I didn't  seem to be hungry. So I checked  out Slurpy, Slappy, Sippy, Sappy, Taster, Licker and  Lew���my Taste Buddies. Only  Lew even bothered to hoist the  "Naw���Forget The Food!"  flag. The other six were curled  up on the tip of my tongue, last  asleep.  I threw a little pink plastic  death wrap over the apple and  cheese, feeling extremely  gratified that PeaU���my Personal Unconscous���hadn't  given up on me. Not that he  ever has, but anyone on a  perilous trek who takes the  guide's well-being for granted  should be condemned to spend  his hereafter in a Hell of his  own choice singing "Fools Rush  In" a cappella, and without  cease.  By availing myself of this in  sight, by acting on it immediately, I have, at least potentially,  rendered myself a great service.  Becoming aware���and remaining aware���of when 1 am  legitimately hungry, and taking  a pass on the food at every other  time, is vital if one desires, as I  do, to come in touch with one's  appestat.  The appestat is a region in the  human brain whose function it  is to adjust appetite. But  without the knowing participation of the conscious entity,  without my playing by the rules  and acting on the feedback provided by my appestat, this  magnificent example of pure  body knowing is as pearl onions  before gourmandish swine.  For those of us who tend to  ignore our appestat, reestablishing good eating habits  (and, just maybe, dropping a  few kilos on the side) is,  curiously enough, a matter of  giving up control rather than attaining it.  Our bodies know what's best  for them and it is the height of  arrogance and folly to believe  that we can, for example, lose  even five pounds permanently  without the approval and  cooperation of our bodies.  Ten days ago my long-  suffering appestat managed lo  climb aboard my runaway  Starch Stage, and I've turned  the reins over to her.  I feel 10 pounds lighter  already.

And, wilh every passing  day, the politicians assure ns that the Department of  Highways is definitely, actually, positively, unreservedly  intending to officially designate Teredo ihe highway of  choice lor those passing through Sechelt, not stopping.

A time of promise  and renewal  Traditionally, and coincidcntally, Easter and Passover  usually wind up being closely aligned, al leasl insofar as  the calendar dates on which the two religious holidays occur.  But these two solemn occasions have more in common,  we believe, than is usually credited.  Passover, or Poach, celebrates the liberation of an ancient people from slavery, specifically the Jews from Egypt  millcnia ago. As such, it is a bittersweet observance, one in  which the suffering of the Jews in captivity is recalled as  vividly as the joy associated wilh iheir emancipation  spearheaded by Moses.  taster, too, has a dual message lor Christian adherents.  Forgetting lor a moment the secular trappings such as  Easter egg hums and parades of singularly commercial  taint, it is instructive to attend to the plight and passion of  Jesus Christ if one would come in touch with the true  meaning of Easter.  Jesus' crucifixion al the hands of the Romans and his  subsequent resurrection, an event as much a matter of  faith as is the parting of the Red Sea, echoes the theme of  suffering and redemption reflected in Ihe rituals of  Passover.  While wishing Sunshine Coast celebrants of Passover  and Easter a memorable holiday charged with promise and  renewal, we would also hope lhat someday a more  ecumenical commingling of both might arise, allowing a  greater sense of shared origins and values to infuse both  venerable religions.  After all, Jesus and Moses were ultimately after the  same things. Liberation of the human spirit, and freedom  from tyrannical oppression.  It was the arrival of the coat  rack, 1 swear, lhat started a  chain of events that bids fair to  sweep all before it. To be fair  about it, I warned all and sundry at the lime lhat the new coat  rack was the thin edge of the  wedge but not even I foresaw  the sweeping changes thai were  to follow in the wake of the coat  rack.  You see, the Coast News office in Gibsons is just aboul as  much of a historic site as il is a  business office. A couple of  years ago a fellow from some  BC Film organization came in  the door. He was looking for  settings for feature films, he explained. He took one look at the  terminal funkiness of our setting and grabbed for his  camera.  "Now," he said, "a newspaper office that still looks like  a newspaper office. Nowadays,  ihey tend to look like dentists'  waiting rooms."  The Beachcombers liked il as  a setting, too, and must have  filmed a dozen episodes here  over the years that the show was  on the air. *-v  But time works its inexorable^  will and certainly as Our  business activities increased and  diversified there was a time  when the little office cum factory was just bursting at the  scams with people and projects.  The old coat rack was an  heirloom which dated from linearly days of Fred and Dorothy  Cruice, I think. It had gradually  surrendered to age and occupied  a corner of the front office  because no one had the time to  think of replacing it.  Earlier this year, Fran decided enough was enough. We  needed a coat rack. The bat-  New coat rack  harbinger  of change  MUSINGS  John Burnside  tcrcd old relic was banished and  in came a brand spanking new  one which in no time at all was  de-crated and speedily assembled. It was the beginning of the  end of an era.  Il was time lo modernize.  Computers were the future and  our expert on them was emphatic that the delicate darlings  could not be subjected lo the  billowing clouds of cigarette  smoke which seemed to me to  be as much a part of the Coast  News as the whales on the  masthead.  "The Coasl News cares,  coughs, and carries on," we  used to joke in the wee small  hours when we worked Ihe long  24-hour shifts on production  day after increasing competition  had just about driven the old  lady from the scene.  So it came to pass in the raw  days of early March lhat we  found ourselves, those lew  dinosaurs still addicted, huddled against the sides of the  building feeling like (he pariahs  that smokers are increasingly  becoming.  If the general decor of the  office was chaos and clutter,  there was never any doubt  about where that condition was  at its most extreme. The corner  of the office which has been my  home away from home for 14  years was chaos incarnate: the  government circulars and agendas and minutes and magazines  and directories had found a  refuge and a haven in a throw  away world. My problem was  lhal I found everything interesting and could throw out  nothing. Years ago the whole  thing got oul of control and it  was as if the piles of stuff were  an extension of a too-cluttered  mind.  I phoned the office one day  recently and was talking to Lite.  She was snuffling and I enquired after her health. "It's  not a cold," she said, "it's the  dust from your corner. We're  putting all your stuff in boxes.  Thai corner is going lo be the  marketing director's."  Yesterday, 1 was asked to  remove the boxes from Ihe office.  "How about I just burn them  unopened," I suggested.  "Can't do lhat, John," said  Jim. "There might be poetry  books in there."  The pictures which hung on  ihe walls were of the Klondike.  They had arrived with an  itinerant reporter and were left  behind when he drifted off. It  seemed natural that the Coast  News would end up with them.  Stuff seemed naturally to flood  in and stay. The pictures are  down off the walls now, and the  business of painting the walls  has begun.  We are going to be as modern  as any newspaper in the province, and our home base is being transformed. Out. go the  cardboard boxes and the burnt-  out publisher editor. In come  the computers, the paint  brushes. Can new carpets and  chintz curtains be far behind?  If, like me, you had a sneaking fondness for the shabby old  office as it was, come down and  sec il quick. Another month and  you won't recognize the place.  As for me, like the old coat  rack, I'll be a fading memory.  The coat rack signalled a new  era and I am thankful to be part  of the old and on my way with  my cardboard boxes which may  or may not contain poetry  books. Tempus fugit.

In  their myopic determination to  have the previous caretaker  overseeing the park, Ihey proceeded in a secretive manner  that has resulted in the following:  A dozen or so fir, cedar and  alder trees were felled including  a growing 275 year old fir that  was most likely the oldest tree in  the park. Ihe last remaining  'heritage' cabin on the sight was  burned down. A most beauliful  section of the very small park  was levelled and an incredible,  eyesore 'mobile home' installed  in its place.  On Friday, March 15, as required by Bylaw 80, i received a  notice informing such and  stating the permit would be considered at the March 28  Regional Board meeting.  On Monday, March 18, the  trailer was installed and il now  appears the occupants (with  whom I have no quarrel) have  moved in. All ihis was done  over a two week period. Apparently at considerable lax-  payer expense.  To date I would have to say  thai in the 10 years I have lived  across from Coopers Green, the  Regional Board has been the  culprit in all the damage, not  vandals! And vandals don't collect taxes.

Being part of the cast for this  new teen TV show, as well as a  person who grew up on the  Coast, I was angered with this  put-down altitude.  Northwood is a very realistic  program about a group of  teenagers. The problems which  the series deal with are those  faced by many teenagers���altitudes and conflicts about  drugs, alcohol and sex.  By seeing these dilemmas  dramatized, viewers may relate  to, and understand that there  are positive solutions to these  problems. I see Northwood giving many options to teens who  are unsure of activities happening around them.  I am very happy to view a  realistic TV show and I am very  proud lo be a Sunshine Coast  resident who has had the  priviledgc lo be a part of Northwood. As for writing to CBC,  please do so and congratulate  Nick Orchard for putting on a  great show for the teens.  K.

J.... ^ je. ���* -r- Coast News, March 30,1991  LETTERS  Roberts Creek General Store has been the hub of "Uptown Roberts Creek" for almost SO years. The  owner, have been participants in the Small Business Management Program and consequently have  renewed Iheir focus of whal Ihey wnnt for the store. Plana Include building a new structure to replace  Ihis building which has aged past the renovation stage. uitriu Fuller photo  Building bricks  for business  by Cathrine Fuller  In 1989 a small survey conducted by the Sunshine Coast  Community Futures Association (SCCFA) indicated small  businesses on the Coast had a  real need for management training, says manager-coordinator  Sharon Sawchuk. Shortly after  the survey was completed,  Sawchuk and a couple of directors travelled to the annual  Community Futures conference  where they heard a presentation  by the Federal Business  Development Bank (FBDB) on  a program which offers a  "whole gamut" of management  training.  On their return, the Community Futures Committee approached the Canada Employment Centre to investigate the  availability of funding for such  a program. Two years later the  Sunshine Coast Business  Management Program commenced.  "That's what we do," explained Sawchuk. "We see  ourselves as a catalyst. There's  enough programs and enough  experts around. We bring  together those who have needs  with those who have the  resources to meet the needs."  The management program,  which began last fall, consists of  30 hours of workshops and  seminars, and 20 hours of  counselling and consultation  with FBDB's project director  Duncan Fraser.  Twenty-five businesses on the  Sunshine Coast are gaining  skills in everything from setting  up a bookkeeping system to  marketing, advertising and  motivating staff.  The program, says Fraser,  "..is really well accepted.  Businesses are using the information and are becoming more  defined and experiencing clarity  in their business." A number  are planning major expansions,  he added.  Each workshop has some  skills to offer each participant,  but one of the major improvements Fraser sees in his  consulting sessions is an improvement of communications  within the businesses.  "As the participants experience   increased   levels   of  communication within the  business, a greater percentage of  ihe personnel's energy is being  focused on developing the  business," he explains.  Lisa Bland, who jointly owns  The Roberts Creek General  Store with husband Ken, and  Kerry and Judy Eldred, agrees  the program has helped their  business to focus. Undecided  Duncan Fraser, Project Director for the Federal Business  Development Bank.  about the direction the General  Store should go, the couples  had listed the store for sale last  fall, just before beginning the  management course.  "We're very thankful wc  found out about the course,"  says Lisa. "We've really got a  sense of direction now, a clear  focus."  The store has been taken off  the market. A new structure is  being built on the property  which will house The Roberts  Creek General Store in the  future, and the old building will  be torn down.  While the average age of the  businesses involved is between  two and four years, according  to Fraser, some older businesses  that are undergoing major expansions have also found the  program to be a great help.  Sechelt Pharmasave has been  in business for IS years, but  owner-operator Jack Northway  signed up for the course to provide his staff with the training  they need, now the store is expanded to almost twice its  former size.  "All the elements of the program make for more successful  business people," says North-  way. "As the employees take on  more responsibilities we need to  up-grade their skills. It takes a  well-trained staff to run the  operation."  Archie the Improver is  another experienced business  that still felt the need for more  management training. Owned  and operated by Archie and  Betty Benzel, the renovation  contractor has been on the  Coast for two and a half years  after operating a similar company in Richmond for many  years.  "We decided it was time to  work smarter, not harder," says  Betty. "When you're a small  business, you're so busy, wearing so many hats, that you don't  take the time to sit back and  look at all the options. You  don't have time to explore up-  to-date business ideas.  "The trouble with a small  business is that you keep thinking you need to work harder."  Much of the training offered  in the program can be applied  immediately with speedy  benefits. Between 60 and 70 per  cent of the businesses needed to  learn how to set up their books,  says Fraser. One of the important things taught was how to  set up a monthly profit analyses.  Without exception, participating businesses were enthusiastic in their endorsement  of the program. Dale Ingram  began Dale's Auto Clinic five  years ago.  "I'm a mechanic by trade,"  he explained, "I didn't have any  management skills.  "It's been an excellent education. Every small business  owner should take a management course. The amount of  knowledge available is phenomenal."  Other businesses may have an  opportunity to take the course  this fall. Sharon Jeske, manager  of the Canada Employment  Centre, said the centre subsidized participation in this year's  program to the tune of $54,000  but it seems to have been money  well spent.  "We think it's a successful  program. Our clients certainly  tell us it is," she confirmed.  Anyone interested in receiving more information on possible future programs should contact Sunshine Coast Community Future at 885-2639.

Your concerned trees  (B.W. Cole)  Local zoning  a 'pretence'  Kdilor's Note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication.  The Honourable Rita Johnston  Minister of Transportation and  Highways  Dear Mrs. Johnston:  It looks to me like your  ministry is driving by high speed  commuter ferry straight  towards a collision with a housing crisis on the Sunshine Coasl.  Don't get me wrong, I consider  your ministry's initiative lo  bring commuter ferries to Ihe  Coast a sound and well-timed  idea.  If we are to salvage what is  left of the Fraser Valley, so that  the influx of people has  something to eat in future years,  we clearly have to start looking  elsewhere for moderate priced  housing. Surely too, riding a  commuter ferry, reading your  newspaper and eating your  doughnut is a far more pleasant  way of commuting lhan grinding your teeth behind the steering wheel driving in from  Langley, Abbotsford or  Chilliwack.  The question is, Mrs.  Johnston, where are all those  people who ride those super  commuter ferries going to live  once they get to Gibsons? Do  you foresee them being stacked  in highrises up School Road?  Because the pressure of  development on Ihe Town of  Gibsons itself is the direct result  of your own ministry's failure  to meet the needs of development in the surrounding district.  There is, of course, a nice  pretence that the Sunshine  Coast Regional District has the  local power to decide on zoning  and subdivisions. But the reality  is that the real decisions of what  goes on in the Regional District  are made in your ministry's offices in Victoria, New  Westminster and Burnaby. Any  businessman, architect, or  developer, who has tried to do  any small development within  (he Regional District, has his  own horror story of his development being strangled by your  ministry, usually with the words  that it simply isn't "policy".  So the people of Gibsons who  have asked that their small town  quality be maintained, arc having it systematically eroded,  simply because developers have  discovered that at least within  the town they can get something  achieved when your ministry  isn't there to constantly strangle  development with its own poor  planning and sitting on its  policy. I know, I have been  there.  There is a solution of course.  A ministry committed to  "Freedom to Move" can easily  give the new migrants, that it's  about to create to the Sunshine  Coast, "Freedom to Live" by  getting out of its own road.  Restructuring of the Town of  Gibsons should be an immediate priority, taking in Area  F, including the Langdale Ferry  Terminal, so that the town can  meet the needs of the new commuters and at the same time  control a low density expansion  around itself. The decisions lor  local development can be made  locally by the Town of Gibsons  itself, for the people it's going  to affect, rather than in  meetings in Victoria or New  Westminster.  J.R.

IGEORGE IN GIBSONS.  by George Cooper, 886-8520  HOME SECURITY  Your home is really secure, is  it?  If reading pamphlets is  somewhat bewildering and not a  satisfactory means of determining the security of your property, a call to this number will bring some assistance. The  number: 885-5554.  That's the telephone number  of the Victim-Witness  /Assistance Program, a program  where volunteers from the community work with the police in  crime prevention.  This service primarily provides support for victims of  crime who are required to be  witnesses in court. The service is  interested, as well, in showing  victims how they may get  restitution, and in helping a victim clean up a mess from vandalism.  And they have a volunteer  member who can assess the  security of your home and make  recommendations for what  could be further done to add to  that security.  Last March 16, the Victim-  Witness servce sponsored an in  formation session on home  security where an RCMP  member, locksmith Guy  Dawkins of Tony's Lock and  Sharpening, and Anderson  Alarm and Answering presented  some displays of locks and  other security methods and encouraged questions from the audience.  One question was the apparent indifference to the sounding of alarm buzzers on  neighbouring houses. Perhaps  the one neighbour who was to  be alert to this alarm was also  away from home, and no one  else in the neighbourhood knew  about it.  This kind of situation  reminds us that the  Neighbourhood Watch program is something for new  neighbourhoods to consider and  act upon. And even in established neighbourhoods, how many  residents have come and how  many gone in the last year or  so?  Engravers are still available at  RCMP offices. How many new  appliances have you recently  obtained? Waste no time  engraving your driver's license  number on each item. Great  quantities of stolen goods are  frequently recovered by the  police; that number can lead to  a quick return of your property.  "Most break-ins occur during  daylight hours," says the  Neighbourhood Watch brochure. "Most break-ins are  committed by persons under the  age of 17."  The brochure goes on to  detail means of ensuring the  security of your residence,  garage and yourself. Getting  over that reluctance that most  of us have about telling a  neighbour of our absence is  likely the first step to a successful Neighbourhood Watch.  Getting to know the neighbours  is, of course, essential to making this work.  A   rampage  of  break-ins  might well be stopped in its  beginnings by alert neighbours  calling the police.

When I first wrote this  column. Elder Abuse was a  topic.  This past weekend while  shopping I saw a "son" about  age 45, with his bevy of  females���mother, wife and  aunt. Every time his mother saw  something she liked and seemed  inclined to buy, he said, "Oh  Mother, you don't need that,"  or "Mother, you don't want to  spend money on that."  Each time he said these things  she would look hurt and confused. After a while she wilted  and ail her sparkle was gone and  she left.  I was disgusted with this  abuser���1 was disgusted with  myself    for    not    saying  something.

Some  people are doing something  about it. 1 walked into Sechelt  last Saturday and saw the Big-  gars out collecting garbage  along their street. And there's  someone doing the same along  Porpoise Bay Road.  There is also a group in Davis  Bay who are going to do the  same  along   the   beach  and.,  highway on Saturday Apr-  weather permitting. If raining it  will be postponed to the next  Saturday. Volunteers are needed. Meet at the pier in Davis  Bay at 10 am. Bring at least one  black garbage bag and plastic  gloves. Everything else will be  supplied.  DUMPSTERS  Two of the dumpsters in  Davis Bay were removed but the  problem remains. Now the problem has been moved to the  Beach Buoy. People are using  their dumpsters and Bubbles  would like to point out that this  is illegal.  If you see anyone leaving  their garbage please report it to  the Beach Buoy or the Regional  District. Paddielocks aren't a  solution as garbage would just  be left on the ground.  Remember there is still one  dumpster at the Davis Bay  beach that can be used. And  there's also the dump!

SUNSHINE SUMMERS  The Sunshine Slimmers say  thanks to everyone who supported their flea market/craft  sale held on March 16. Winners  of the raffle were Eileen Nelson,  W. Larsen and Sylvia  Black well.  by ttm Faattata, WM4II  Teri Dawe makes  national news  1 hope everyone is enjoying a  pleasant happy spring holiday.  Nice weather, but still a bit on  the chilly side as those of you  who have been doing some  garden work have probably  noticed. Still, it's always good  to get out there tilling the soil  and communicating with good  old Mother Nature.  The first reporting of a hummingbird in our area came last  week from Jenny Brooke of  Redrooffs. Thanks Jennifer.  ON THE JOURNAL  I expect that quite a few of  our readers will have watched  Barbara Frum on The Journal  following the 10 o'clock news  recently. It was a pleasant surprise to see Teri Dawe of  Redrooffs on this particular  program about fish farming on  the Sunshine Coast.  There were some very disturbing photo shots of the terrible  methods used to "bury" the  thousands of dead salmon more  or less in our own backyard. It  was really most disgusting, and  seeing the quantity of these  dead fish was a real eye opener  for many of us. Well done Teri  for helping to bring this mess to  the attention of many who were  more or less unaware of what  has been going on over the past  few years.  ENTERTAINMENT  There has been lots of good  entertainment presented for our  enjoyment these past few  weeks. On St. Patrick's  weekend we popped along to  the Backeddy Pub in Egmont  where we thoroughly enjoyed  an evening of music and song  by local folk group Watersyde.  Leader of the group is Tom  Richardson, who throughout  the evening played no less than  six different instruments, the  highlight being the hammer  dulcimer, handmade by Tom.  Comprising the group were  Helen Shaffer, guitar and vocal;  Clay Hepburn on the mountain  banjo, also made by Clay; and  Martin Kiewitz on mandolin.  Margaret Buchanan joined the  group, leading some rousing  foot-stomping sing-alongs. You  will have a chance to hear this  group on April 12 at Wilson  Creek Hall when they will be the  "House Band" at a Watersyde  Folk Club evening with Murray  Evans from Manitoba as guest.  On the same night, March 16,  there was lots of singing and  music at Welcome Beach Hall's  Fun Night, an evening which  was thoroughly enjoyed by all.  For those of you who play  bridge at the hall, please note  that games will continue in  Spril, on the Fridays of the 5th  and 12th.  MORE MUSIC  Last Saturday night we dropped by at the Seniors' Hall in  Sechelt where a packed house  enjoyed Nikki Weber, Floyd  Carmen and George and Marg  Carpenter presenting a program  of Hawaiian music and song.  The audience couldn't get  enough of the greal music  presented by this talented group  and kept asking for more.  Prior to the show a dinner  put on by Len Herder had been  enjoyed. These evenings are  mostly to raise funds for the  new hall which is finally about  to become a reality.  A reminder to all members  and prospective members that  the Halfmoon Bay branch of  the Hospital Auxiliary regular  monthly meeting is on Monday,  April 8 at Welcome Beach Hall,  10 am.

Row Niclioiwn photo  Coast health update  By Rose Nicholson  Twenty-live Grade 5 and 6  students from Davis Bay  Elementary School last week  had an inside look at the way a  weekly newspaper is put  together.  They learned the difference  between a cut-line, a by-line and  a dead-line; a news story and an  editorial; a column and a  feature.  They found out that many  more people work on the paper  besides the editor and the  reporters; that the publisher, the  columnists, the advertising  salespeople, bookkeepers,  receptionists, layout people,  photographers and typesetters  all play equally important roles.  They learned about the tools  of a reporter's trade���pen and  paper or a tape recorder, a  typewriter or a computer, and a  camera. But what is even more  important, they learned that a  reporter must have a lively  curiosity, an objective mind and  the ability to listen.  Sparked by their teacher,  Vanna Anderson, this lively  bunch had a myriad of in  telligent and provocative questions. They wanted to know  who made the decisions on what  to write about.(the editor); how  many members of the public go  to council meetings (depends on  the issue, sometimes not many);  if a reporter's job is an interesting one (most of the time).  They entered into a lively  philosophical discussion on the  responsibilities a newspaper has  to the community���the importance of presenting a balanced  viewpoint; of making sure the  facts are reported accurately; of  ensuring that all parts of the  community are represented.  They found out that if they  wrote a short, concise letter to  the editor, it would be an opportunity to express their own  opinion in print.  And probably most imp  tant of all, the would-be wrii  in the class found out that tl  have probably, (even if tl  didn't know it yet) aire;  started on their future writ  careers, because writing is  craft based on what they ,  learning now about t  language.  They learned that reading  probably the single most imp  tant component of a write  training, that it's an effortli  way to absorb an appreciati  of good writing.  And they'll be learning tt  there's at least 26 ways of telli  the same story, because they  all be writing their own versit  of this one.  Gibsons Office: 494 S.

The space  between the tree planters may be used to set up a row of tables, each space being approximately 3' by 6'.  If you wish to sell your paintings, carvings, handicrafts, pottery or to paint portraits, this is an opportunity to present your work. Our aim is to make this strictly for those who create and perfect their own  craft, NOT FOR THE SALE OF SECOND HAND GOODS.  The idea would be to have several artists participating each Saturday or Sunday throughout the summer to olfer a service to the tourist trade. Because there are costs involved such as licence, insurance and  promotion, there will be a $10 fee (per table/space) for a one day presentation or 6 Saturdays (or Sundays) for $30. The artist would supply his/her own table and decorations.  This event would take place every Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. starting May 4  and finishing in September. We would like to get one of the artists to co-ordinate the arts and crafts  people. If you are interested in becoming involved or would like to co-ordinate this market please call  Mary-Ellen Turner at Just For You (886-2470) or Nancy Carby al Richards (886-2116).  fresh Brewed COFFEE  for your office or  place of business  ���Cotfee brewers supplied  at no charge  ���Weekly coffee delivery  Grear selecrion  ���Coffee ser-ups for meerlngs  Come in to a Friendly Cafe  Relax and Enjoy  ���A superbly satisfying  meal  ���A "famous" Harbour Cafe  home made dessert  ���Great service from people  "   who care  Lucky Dollar  Congratulations  to Martin Payne  our winner of the  10 speed  TORAGO Sportster  bike contest  Jusf for you  IP���CC��C'D  ���     E      S     I     O     N     S  FOR THE LADY  WHO LOVES EARRINGS  OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK  .SHION HOl I ltjl I  Canada Grade A Beef  CHUCK   a  en  STEAKS 1.03  Beef Cross Rib ��� Bone-to ft      M ft  roast * ��.43  Fresh Lean ft     ft ft  ground beef     .

Spssmrrreet by Sunshine (Uieut NDP CAubA ������  by Ruth Forrester  One of the province's most  successful romance authors was  born and raised here on the  Sunshine Coast.  Judy Gill of Redrooffs Road  was raised in Egmont, as, to  quote Judy, an "Egmonster".  She graduated from Pender  Harbour School and later joined the armed forces. It was during this period that Judy met  and married Bob Gill, also a  member of the forces.  While stationed in Germany,  Judy began writing novels,  some of which she submitted to  British publishers. It was extremely difficult at that time lo  be accepted for publication, but  the fact that a couple were put  in print was sufficient encouragement lo carry on and try  again.  When Bob retired from the  service, it was time to settle  down in a permanent home to  raise two daughters.  "There was never any doubt  as to where we would build. It  had to be somewhere on the  Sunshine Coast," said Judy in  an interview with the Coasl  News.  Apparently this was the right  decision, since Judy is now contracted to produce four novels a  year for her publisher. Double-  day's Loveswept line.  Gone are the days when some  people were inclined to "put  down" romance writers, since  the gradual increase in popularity of the genre shows that 40 per  cent of mass market paperbacks  are romance novels. The  publishers are most discriminating and demand high quality workmanship, only accepting  about one in every 1000  manuscripts submitted.  "Obviously this is filling a  need," remarked Judy. "The  biggest thrill of any writer's life  is knowing that so many people  are out there buying your  books, and caring enough to  write of the pleasure received  from them."  Judy has an impressive total  of 22 published novels to her  credit, the latest of which is a  hardcover, Bad Billy Culver,  due to appear in book stores  this month.  Rendezvous Magazine  describes it as "Incredible  reading, and the emotion from  page one is intense. A definite  MUST!"  Success has not gone to  Judy's head. She loves what she  does, and is always willing to  help prospective writers who  seek her advice.

He was a small chipper man  with a tremendous zest for story  telling and a colourful way with  words. Generally he'd drop by  my place with his equally  diminutive wife, on the way  home from their summer cabin  at Ruby Lake and we'd swap  yarns for a couple of hours. I'd  trade him logging stories for  yarns about the Vancouver  waterfront where he worked for  many years. Alec had a droll  sense of humour that enlivened  Channel Eleven  Tuesday, April 2,1991  Elphinstone Student  Productions T.V.

Some two weeks after his  final visit, I was saddened to  hear of his sudden death from a  heart-attack while descending a  trail from the Black Tusk  plateau near Squamish. At 68,  Alec had been granted only  three brief years to enjoy his  retirement after a lifetime of  frequently gruelling dockwork.  I determined at that time to set  down his story, using his own  inimitable  words   wherever  Alec first came to Vancouver  with his family in 1913. They  lived only a mile from the  waterfront and as he said: "I  just naturally gravitated down  there at an early age. There was  sickness in the family and we all  had to pitch in to help balance  the budget.' The Longshoreman's Hall was then located in  an alley, half a block west of  Main. There'd always be a  bunch of us hanging around  outside, looking for casual  work. There's a telephone pole  still standing there today that we  used to lean against. Still got my  initials carved on it. It's a  wonder it never toppled over  from the weight of all those  guys."  The casual men were not  allowed in the hall. They were  obligated to wait outside no  matter how bitter and inclement  the weather. When all the union  men had been picked, the  dispatcher would emerge and  select however many men he  needed for whatever bottom-of-  the-barrci work was left. He  was a pompous self-important  man by the name of Hill. The  men christened him Hill-with-  thc-sermon-on-the-hill because  of his pious leanings and holier-  than-thou voice. The small joke  helped lighten those long and  frequently futile vigils.  Sometimes when the weather  got too miserable, Alec and  some of his more adventuresome colleagues would dare  those forbidden portals to sneak  a fleeting taste of warmth. Their  nemesis was an ex-prison guard  named Monty, a sort of janitor-  commissionaire, whose task was  to prevent such intrusions. They  played cat-and-mouse with this  stern authority figure, ducking  back into the street when they  heard his heavy footsteps on the  basement stairs.  One particularly miserable  day, Alec lingered too long over  the radiator and was startled by  the sound of a gruff voice. He'd  been nabbed fair and square.  But, to his amazement, Monty,  exhibiting a hitherto-  unsuspected streak of humanity, forewent the usual tongue-  lashing followed by expulsion,  and permitted him to stay. It  seemed like a major victory.  Generally however, life was  no bed of roses for the men on  the casual gang. Even when they  were lucky enough to get work,  it was always the worst and the  hardest. Not that any dockwork  was particularly easy; it was a  matter of degree and the  regulars always got first pick.  The casuals were left with the  dregs.  Alec recalls vividly how bitter  those dregs sometimes tasted:  "A number of times I got a job  at the Terminal Dock. It was  called the 'Terrible Dock' in  those days and quite rightly so  because it wasn't like it is today.  All the planking was bad and  even just walking around  without hand-trucks was quite a  feat.  "I remember one job in particular. There was a ship called  the Arizort Mam at the very far  end of the dock. Part of the  ongoing cargo was 750 tons of  salted herring in 200 pound  cases. This had to be trucked by  hand the entire length of the  dock to the ship. It was one of  the worst jobs I ever had in my  life. It was wintertime with  about half an inch of slush on  the planks���which didn't help  matters. Sleet was coming down  and there was an endless procession of men going back and  forth with the hand-trucks. All  you could see were men helping  each other to reload dropped  cases. As a short person, it was  particularly hard for me to  balance that great weight on the  Sechelt'  Public Library'  II      Hour.:" wed,  ' thim.  10 :JOam-apm_  10 I0am.t|*n  III Warn 7pm  PM, l-Spm  Sal.

"I remember many times,  having what seemed like the  start of a stroke. The muscles of  my mouth would start to twitch  from the strain. It was a grim ���  situation.  "To make matters even grimmer, I had nothing for lunch  but two syrup sandwiches���not  very tasty. At suppertime, they  told us to go cat and come back.  I didn't have any money and  didn't know anyone well  enough to ask for a loan so I  just stayed beside the shed while  the rest of them went up to a  cafe on Powell Street. Wc  worked from seven to midnight  and then���believe it or not���we  took another hour off and  worked from one to six in the  morning."  Men were being replaced  every couple of hours but Alec  somehow managed to stick it  out. His fortitude impressed the  foreman who promised to try  and get him on the steady  board.  TobecoaaMKd...

It was Sunday and I longed to travel, but I couldn't afford it and I had to  work on Monday, so I compromised. I hopped the ferry to a little piece of  Japan, the Arigato Sushi Japanese Restaurant in Horseshoe Bay.  My travelling companion had never sampled Japanese cuisine before, so I  advised him to try one of the restaurant's Complete Boat Dinners. His meal included Japanese tea, Miso soup (fish broth with tofu and tofu paste),  Sunamono Salad (vinegared rice noodles topped with ornately arranged  vegetables and fish), rice and a choice of main entrees. The Teriyaki beef and  lobster he chose arrived on a sizzling platter, flanked by stir fried bean sprouts  and vegetables. My friend loved it anfl was so full he barely had room for the  green tea ice cream, an unusual Japanese treat that you simply must try.  A confirmed sushi nut, I started out with a bowl of miso soup and a plate of  gyoza (spicy Japanese fried dumplings) and then dove into a la carte sushi. The  tender pieces of tuna, salmon, red snapper, octopus and uni (sea urchin roe)  topping savory white rice fingers almost melted in my mouth. And the futo  maki roll (crab, Japanese pickle, spinach, cucumber and rice rolled inside a  thin sheet of roasted sea weed) was a medley of tantalizing tastes. A plate of  delicately arranged fruit was the perfect ending to a very filling and fulfilling  meal.  _*V_  FAMILY DINING  Cafe Pierrot- Comfortable atmosphere wkh warm, helpful staff.

With the Hawks a man short,  Cory August scored a big goal  to tie the game at 4-4 going into  the dressing room before the  final period. Trent Dixon got  the go-ahead goal part way  through the third period and the  Hawks never looked back.  Owen Joe had a good night  to lead the Hawks' scorer with  three goals. Ryan Paul and  Ricky August also scored.  Wakefield captain Claude  Charleton replied with a pair of  goals in a losing cause. Brian  Poison and Darren Kohuch also  scored.  It was the Hawks first playoff championship since the  1988-1989 season. Wakefield  was the odds-on favourite to  win because of winning the  league championship so readily  plus winning the play-off championships the last two years in a  row.

Natural horsepower has  right to the road  The Sunshine Coast  Equestrian Club would like to  remind everyone of the rights  and rules regarding horses on  the roads.  Horses have the same rights  on roads as motor vehicles. For  example, at an intersection a car  must yield to a horse on the  car's right. Similarly, if a car is  at a stop sign it cannot proceed  unless the horse has passed by  on the through street.  Use caution around horses.  The impact of a large animal  colliding with a vehicle can easily cause serious injury and  death.  Slow down when meeting or  passing horses. Leave a  reasonable space between your  vehicle and a horse.  Do not pass horses on  bridges. A bridge may cause  even an experienced horse to be  nervous, so please be patient.  Do not pass horses on blind  corners.  Do not honk your horn, yell,  whistle, wave, pound on sides  of cars, swerve onto the  shoulder near a horse, screech  tires, spew gravel, throw things  or do any other action which  might frighten a horse.  A driver can be charged for  driving without due care and attention or driving without  reasonable consideration for  other users of the highway, pursuant to the provisions of the  Motor Vehicle Act.  Do not assume all riders are  competent, or all horses are  used to traffic. As there are bad  drivers, also there are bad  riders. Always be alert in the  vicinity of horses and expect the  unexpected.  Drive defensively. Courtesy is  essential to safety in the saddle  and on the roads. It is important that both riders and drivers  show consideration to all others  using the roads.  Courtesy and consideration  save lives.  lemstalks .Hunting  & Fishing Supplies  -���-      885-4090 .

Dr. BUI Mackie, chair of Ihe Athletics and Recreation Committee  of the BC Medical Association, and daughter Christie, age 11,  demonstrate a recreational ski helmet with recommended safety  features. The BCMA is embarking on a campaign to encourage  skiers to reduce the risk of head injuries by wearing helmets on the  slopes.  Helmets reduce  ski injuries  Head injuries can be.  prevented if skiers wear"  helmets, says the BC Medical  Association (BCMA).  "People are becoming more  accustomed to wearing helmets  while cycling," said Dr. Bill  Mackie, chair of the Athletics  and Recreation Committee of  the BCMA. "Now we want to  emphasize the need to also protect heads on the ski slopes," he  said.  The BCMA has adopted a  policy urging all skiers, especially pre-teens because of their  small size and underdeveloped  musculoskeletal system, to wear  protective head gear.  When buying a helmet, Dr.  Mackie advises skiers to look  for a strong outer shell, sufficient padding, a wide angle  opening, and generous venting.  He also recommends the helmet  be light, colourful and have a  chin strap.  Few statistics are available  about the extent of head injuries  among skiers, he said.  On the rocks  Curling season winds up  by Harry Turner  The rocks have been put  away for another year, the ice  will be coming out and the  building will be put to other  uses for the summer. It is time  to take out your gardening  gloves, your baseball glove or  the dusty old golf clubs. It has  been a good season for  everyone, but the time has come  to hang up the broom, put away  the curling shoes and await  another season to do it all over  again.  As usual, we owe a great deal  to our executive who lake all the  abuse we hand out and do all of  the work. We also need to  thank John McKerracher for  three seasons of hard and  faithful work. He has put in  many hours for the club and we  wish   him   well  in   his  new  endeavours. We hope he will  join us next season as one of the  club members.  We wish to thank Gary  Flumerfelt and his executive for  their long hours of hard work  on our behalf. They have done  a good job and deserve a resounding thank you.  It was very pleasing to see so  many new faces at the start of  this curling season, and  especially to see so many young  people out playing the game. I  made a lot of new friends this  year and 1 wish every one of you  the best until next season.  I don't have the league winners, but 1 do know the playoff  winners, so I will relay these to  you. Remember, all winners are  to be recognized at our windup  party which takes place on the  evening of Saturday, April 6 at  6:30 pm. Tickets are available  from John or Gary. If you  haven't got your ticket yet, you  should, because it is always a  good party.  Playoff winners were: Ladies  A event, the Skytte rink; B the  Chelsburg team, and C the  Reitze team; Mixed A event was  won by the Skytte foursome, B  event was won by the Hocknell  team and C event was won by  the Anderson team; mens' action saw the Turner team take  the A event, the Hill team take  the B event and the Anderson  team the C event.  It is time for me to take some  time off from the column again  and I will start again in late  August or September. By lhat  time our new executive will have  its feet wet and will be ready for  a new season.  I wish everyone the best over  the summer and will see you all  again at the club next winter.  TIDE TABLES  The 20th Annual Vancouver International Marathon takes  place Sunday, May 5, 1991 and will bring more than 1500  runners together for a 42.2 kilometre race through Vancouver  and the North Shore.  The top BC and Canadian finishers will earn trips to  marathons in Japan and Hawaii. To date there are six countries including Japan, Germany, Belgium, Australia and the  US participating in the Vancouver Marathon.  Other events on the marathon weekend include a prerace  carbo party, a 12 kilometre road race, a half marathon, and  community entertainment along the route. The race begins at  7 am with the start and finish at the Plaza of Nations across  from BC Place Stadium.  This year will be the last opportunity to run the existing  challenging route incorporating both the Lions Gate and Second Narrows bridges. A new and permanent route is being  planned beginning in 1992 which will attract both world class  as well as recreational runners.

Gibsons  885-9526  Gibsons' Pigs  triumphant  once more  by John Rainer  and Stuart Frizzel  Going into town the week  after a victory, the Gibsons  Rugby Club was entertaining  thoughts of a winning streak.  Hopes were high!  Playing under beautiful skies  and a solid pitch vs the  Meralomas II side, the Pigs  were ready and eager. From the  opening whistle we knew it was  going to be an uphill battle,  especially looking at their forwards, each man outweighed  ours by more pounds than my  son. HSi  Scrummages were a battle  against the reverse peddle and"-  line-outs were competitive but ,  below 50 per cent win. With all  this to contain, the local swine  gamely perservered. Playing still  with vigor and enthusiasm, the  thoughts of streak abundantly  refreshing thier memories, they  fought hard and were lucky  enough to counter these  behemoths and drive them into  their own territory once or  twice.  Experience still has an edge  on our valiant lads and they  were unfortunate not to score  more often; finishing touch  coming from follow up and second and third phase ball still a  factor.  With this in mind, they never  did say die, and proving that  their conditioning has improved, the fellows continued to  strive forward and, with time  running out, put themselves on  the board with a fine try.  Wayne "Mr. Shape" Sim capped off a great effort by all. The  final score, Meralomas II 22,  Pigs 4. Good effort lads!  On Saturday last the Pigs  again made the journey into  Vancouver for an away game.  The morning skies threatened  rain so the boys were ready for a  static scrum battle.  As we arrived at the Scribes'  park, the clouds broke to give  us some sunshine. Their pitch  was firm which allowed for a  more open running game than  we had expected.  After a tentative start, the  chequered swine acquired an  appetite for that ball. Rucking  was successful and we repeatedly crashed through their line  outs. Also, the backs  demonstrated fine coverage and  ball handling.  In the end our conditioning  sealed a 10-4 victory for Gibsons. This much deserved win  score is a good indication of the  improvement of this young club  with stand out performances  from our Irish import, David  Mahony, Steve Rhodes, Tom  Mulligan and Drew Murphy.  We return to town next week  vs Meralomas I, then finish the  season at home on April 6. We  look forward to your support at  the field and afterward. Come  on down and raise your arm in  salute to a fine, adventurous  new breed of Pig.  A note to all those interested,  and club members: This year's  annual awards banquet will be  held on April 13. A finely  catered event all should participate in, and if you are wanting to attend, please call  ASAP, 886-3384 or 886-8833.  Maybe see you there! Oink!  Oink!

For example a person who  stipulates "no children" as a  condition of rental would be in  violation of the Family Status and  the Human Rights Acts. The  landlord who places the adver  tisement and the newspaper  which publishes it would both be  in contravention ol the legislation  and could have a complaint hied  againsl them.

A Canada Day vision  -Two concerned Chatelech students, Christa Vandeburg (left) and  Jordan Guignard (right), cleaned up the Utter on the path from  : Rockwood Lodge to the school after reading disparaging reports  in the local papers. Sfaart Baraslde photo  On the trash patrol  by Stuart Burnside  ; After reading newspaper  , reports of litter on the path  . leading to Chatelech Secondary,  j two students decided to address  ; the problem themselves. "We  - felt bad when we read it in the  ��� paper," said Grade 9 student  I Christa Vandeburg, "we didn't  : like the way it made our school  'seem."  Last week Christa and Grade  : 10 student Jordan Guignard  ��spent three hours of their Sun-  _ day picking up the garbage  ''. strewn along the path leading  '��� from Rockwood Lodge up to  a the school. In all, the students  collected three large bags of litter, as well as larger items like  an old tire and a Highways  Department street sign.  "There was a whole lot more  than we expected," said Jordan.  The girls say they would like  to get participation from their  fellow students to ensure the  path is kept clean on a regular  basis.  "I would like to see it done  weekly," said Vandeburg, who  is on the school's environment  committee, but she discounts  the idea of providing the area  with additional rubbish bins.  "They'd just get kicked over,"  she said.

The  j community office is funded by  ' provincial dollars to serve and  - promote the volunteer sector.  '. They interview, register and  . help place people in volunteer  .' positions.  ; Additionally, they ' register  ; and help agencies with funding  ��� proposals,   event   consulting,  ��� volunteer management and  a board development.  '. People in the community are  'encouraged to use the large  resource library and encouraged  to drop in for information. In  the last month 84 people dropped by for information and  help.  At this time 310 agencies are  registered and each agency file is  updated regularly by a data processing clerk, Jill West, who  started out as a volunteer a year  ago.  The hours are 9 to 4 Monday  through Friday.

She envisions the day starting  with a flag raising ceremony in  Dougal Park, complete with  RCMP officers in scarlet  uniforms and a choir singing O  Canada. "I think it's time we  stood up and showed some  pride in our country," she  declared.  She suggests that people from  various national. and ethnic  backgrounds could set up  booths and sell national foods  and crafts. National costumes  could be worn, and there might  be performances of national  dances and music.  "It would give these groups  an opportunity to show  everybody where they came  from and what happened in  their homeland," she said.  "I've seen it done in other communities, and it's really impressive."  Burk has already thought of  several groups who might take  part���Scottish country dancers,  the White Tower Society, native  dancers, and people with  Spanish, Mexican, Greek,  Chinese, Japanese, Ukrainian  or Italian backgrounds. "There  may be more," she said. "We'd  like to hear from them.  "We're not leaving ourselves  much lime for this year, but we  could make a small start. It's  the sort of thing that could  develop into an exciting tourist  attraction."  Initial sponsors of the event  will be the Gibsons Chamber of  Commerce, but Burk is looking  for more help and more ideas.  Anyone who would Uke to get  involved can call her at  886-7995 (days), or 886-2533  (evenings).  jfjUKfe  % tf**  Sunshine Coast Regional District  BULLETIN BOARD  Royal Terraces Building. 5477 Wharl Rd  Sechell.

Visa ��� Master Card  Cash ��� Cheque  Lay-Away  Cantor's salmon program  in tenth year  This year Canfor employees,  who in their spare time run a  salmon enhancement program  at McNab Creek, hope to  release 750,000 salmon fry into  the creek.  The project, which has been  in operation now for 10 years,  has a spawning channel and incubation boxes that keep water  at constant temperature and  protect the young fry from  predators, flooding and freezing.  The construction of the  spawning channel was financed  by the Federal Department of  Fisheries and Oceans, and the  project is supervised by DFO's  community advisor Grant Mc-  Bain,  The enhancement has  resulted in a survival rate for the  fry of 90 per cent, compared to  10 per cent in the wild where  salmon eggs are deposited in  nests in the gravel of the stream,  bed.  The site and an access road  for the project was donated by  Canfor. "It's a very positive  project," said Kelly Hatfull,  assistant logging engineer at the  Mainland Logging Division of  Canfor at Port Mellon.  "It has been a good learning  experience, not just for Canfor  people, but for junior forest  wardens and local volunteers.  Everyone has shown a lot of interest."  Eggs for the project are  gathered from the Cheakamus  River near Squamish. The objective of the program is to  build the run to 5000 chums a  year, up from the historical  averages of 1500.  The four year cycle of the fish  will peak in 1992, when the  500,000 fry that were released in  1988 will return to the stream.  Another recent project at  Mainland was the $30,000  upgrade to the fish ladder on  the Rainy River that is used to  help the fish by-pass the dam  that was built on the creek in  .1962.  ' "It's a big improvement over  the old system," said McBain.  "It not only provides better  safety for the volunteers, but  more security for the fish as  well."
