 SSSSv. * i  Wtj-iW " Publish*  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25'per copy on news stands May 7,1990    Volume 44   Issue 19  Sechelt's taxes  below average  working  chemical  cedure.  at the time the fire started in the work area and they quickly put out the flames with dry  extinguishers. The fire department was immediately on the scene for a cool-down pro-  ���Jef f Carpenter photo  While the tax rate in Sechelt  Municipal District continues to  go up, it also remains almost 25  per cent lower than the provincial average, and more than 30  per cent lower than the average  for communities of a comparable size.  The budget adopted by  Sechelt council on May 2  reflects a 20 per cent increase in  residential taxes from 4.50 mils  to 5.40 mils. The provincial  average is 7.21 mils.  Mayor Tom Meredith told  reporters that he had taken  eight communities of comparable size and their average  1989 rate came out to 7.97 mils.  The communities he used were:  Mackenzie, Parksville, Tumbler  Ridge, Smithers, Ladysmith,  Port Hardy, Sparwood and  Merritt.  The highest rate increase in  the Sechelt budget hits light industry, with a 45.45 per cent increase from 11 mils to 16 mils,  still well under the provincial  average of 20.23 mils.  Meredith expressed  dissatisfaction with the provincial government's grant formulae for municipalities.  Although the province recently  announced   that   municipal  grants would be increasing by  18 per cent, through the calculation formulae Sechelt's grant  was only increased by eight per  cent.  "I think we got shafted," he  told reporters. "We've let them  know but there's nothing we  can do."  A major portion of the increase will be spent on administering the business of a  growing municipality. Salaries  have been increased, the  building inspector has had his  hours increased from part-time  to full time, a technical assistant  has been hired and a Director of  Finance, and the municipal  engineer has had his time increased.  The revenues from the growing population will not be  received this year. According to  Meredith,   "It's   unfortunate  that the assessment office is so  far behind that much of the  land thai was built on in 1989  will still be assessed as  undeveloped."  The population of Sechelt, ho  estimates, is now 6500.  Included in the budget is  $9490 on grants to community  health services including: th.  Home Support Society, Com  munity Services, the Association for the Handicapped and  the Breakaway Society.  The Festival of the Written  e��Jls, the Chamber of Commerce and Travel Sunshine  Coast receive the largest portions of grants from the  Municipal District. With nine  other recipients the total grants  come to $26,750.  The total budget for 1990  comes to $2,863,916, which includes a $47,570 surplus.  Council calls special meeting  on Qospel Rock by-law  A special council meeting has  been called for Tuesday, May 8,  in order that Gibsons Council  can deal with Rezoning By-Law  555-28 (Gospel Rock) before Ihe  regularly scheduled council  meeting of May 15.  The rezoning by-law was  tabled at the May 1 council  meeting with a motion by  Alderman Lilian Kunstler and  seconded by Alderman Jerry  Dixon.  The Coast News telephoned  Town Planner Rob Buchan on  Friday afternoon to substantiate  the rumour circulating around  Gibsons that a special council  meeting to deal with By-Law  555-28 had indeed been called.  He said "yes", because Ihe  motion to table the by-law on  May 1 had not specified the  May 15 council meeting but only 'the next council meeting'.  According to Buchan, council plans to meet first on May 8  at 7:30 for the special budget  meeting and then for the regular  Planning Committee meeting at  8 pm. That committee meeting  will then be interrupted at 8:30  to allow council to vote on the  Gospel Rock rezoning.  In her motion on May I,  Kunstler said: "I would like to  see Alderman Reynolds here."  She was referring to the absence  of Reynolds because of health  reasons at both that evening's  council meeting and the public  hearing the night before.  "...I feel there are some  things aboul which I'm nol  clear and I would like a chance  to go over it. I would like this  tabled."  Mayor Diane Strom advised  council to "make sure they have  a chance to go over everything"  and that "this be on the next  agenda of council so a decision  can be made one way or  another."  Clerk-Administrator Lorraine Goddard asked the Mayor  if the by-law was tabled to a  specific date and Kunstler then  added: "May I say I would like  it to be tabled until next council  meeting."  Buchan told the Coast News  he had advised council to advertise this special meeting but apparently the town decided  against this because it felt it  might set a precedent for all  other special council meetings in  the future.  newspapers about the meeting.  Earlier in the week, Town  Planner Rob Buchan told council eighteen-and-a-half acres of  the area known as Gospel Rock  was designated parkland by the  property's owners, Valentine  Lands Corporation. This  designation depends on rezoning from R4 to Rl and subdivision of the remaining 70 acres  on the upper plateau going  through.  This offer includes the majority of the slope area above  Gower Point Road as well as  the waterfront and the portion  previously designated an 'eagle  sanctuary'.  The rezoning By-law 555-28  was not given third reading,  however, in spite of this new offer because council needed some  time lo peruse all the new information, said Alderman Lilian  Kunstler and she moved the bylaw be tabled until the May 15  council meeting.  Because of a conflict of interest, Alderman Ken Collins  took no part in council's dealings with Gospel Rock last week  and removed himself from the  table during discussion on the  matter. Collins is contracted to  Valentine Lands Corporation's  representative Hayden Killam at  Secret Cove Marina.  In his Planner's Report,  Buchan also advised council the  town had received the Restrictive Covenant to be registered  under Section 2I5(I)(C) of the  Land Title Act by Letter of  Undertaking from the applicant's solicitor.  This Restrictive Covenant  details, besides the parkland  designation, two other specific  points recommended by him,  Buchan said:  a. The average lot size for the  lots to be developed on the  balance of block seven in the  event of a successful rezoning  shall be 929 square metres  (10,000 square feet);  b. The minimum side yard  setback requirement for all  dwellings on lots in the subdivision of the balance of block  seven shall be 3.048 metres (10  feet).  According to Buchan, the latter restriction ensures the  separation of dwelling units will  be twice that which is normally  required in-the requested Rl ���>  zoning.  "In my opinion, the extensive  amount of parkland potentially  obtainable through this rezoning, in tandem with the larger  than average Rl lot size, reflects  the spirit and philosophy of the  Gibsons Official Community  Plan," he said, adding:  "The many other aspects of  valid concern raised by the  public at the several public hearings on this matter can more appropriately and legally be addressed through the eventual  subdivision process and 1 am  already on record on several oc-  Jfions that as your approving  officer, I shall be exercising fuS  vigijance in the surveillance of  this project, particularly in the  design stages.  "During this period I certainly intend to enlist the input of  the Ministry of Transportation  and Highways, the Minister of  Environment and, as previously  indicated, the public, at a public  hearing to be convened prior to  my signing of any final plan of  subdivision."  "We've come a long way,"  Buchan later told the Coast  News.  Mammography unit for St. Mary's  Fund drive has quick end  by Rose Nicholson  Three days after the beginning of a fundraising campaign  to raise over $100,000 for the  new mammography machine at  St. Mary's Hospital the new  equipment was fully paid for.  At a presentation ceremony  on May 3 at the hospital, donations totaling $37,000 from  several local organizations appeared to leave a sizeable  balance yet to be raised by the  army of volunteer canvassers  who had gathered to kick off  the campaign.  But an unexpected announcement from MLA Harold Long  that the Ministry of Health  would pick up the lab for ihe  balance took everyone by surprise.  The $37,000 raised locally  represents $25,000 from the six  branches of the Ladies' Auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital;  $3000 from the Sechelt Legion  (Branch 140); $2000 from the  Ladies Auxiliary to the Sechelt  Legion; $2000 from the Legion  Poppy Fund; $2500 from the  Roberts Creek Legion; $650  from the Hospital Employees  Union; as well as many donations from private individuals.  The total cost of the equipment is $105,536 and the  Ministry cheque for $79,152  represents 75 per cent of that  amount.  "I was embarrassed when I  heard about how much you  people were contributing to this  campaign," said Long, "so I  took it up with the people at the  Ministry of Health and I'm very  pleased to be able to make the  announcement of this funding  today."  The new machine will mean  that the 12 to 15 thousand  mammograms ordered by doctors each year for women on the  Sunshine Coasl will now be  done at St. Mary's instead of at  hospitals on the Lower  Mainland.  Administrator Ted Wright  stressed that the local service  will be for diagnostic purposes  and will be done only on a doctor's referral. Doctors recommend thai every women over  forty have a screening mammogram and this can be done al  several clinics around the province.  Screening will not be done  here, but any woman who  suspects any problem, or who  has a family history of cancer is  urged to see her family doctor  for a referral.  The three part unit, already  housed in its own corner of the  X-ray department of the  hospital, is fully self-contained.  The films are developed immediately, enabling doctors to  make the quick diagnosis so important in the treatment of  cancer.  Dr. Mclver, radiologist at St.  Mary's told the Coast News that  the new equipment is among the  best available. He stressed that The risk factor, according to  radiation   is   negligible,   pro- statistics, would be equivalent  viding a high safety margin for <o driving 40 to 50 kilometres in  both patients and technicians.  MLA Harold Long, shown here with St. Mary's Hospital Aux-  iliary member Vivian Tepoorten announces a provincial grant of  $75,152 to augment local donations of $37,000 for a new mammography machine at St. Mary's. Within three days of the fund  raising campaign the machine was paid for. -Rom Nkkobo* photo  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  ���-*���*���**"*"*-"**���" ���t.<-,n-e.^-Hia.i.^ilmmt<m,��l><,l>��,!  fl -latili Coast News, May 7,1990  Self-help?  Economic development can be a tricky business.  There are subtle distinctions between cultivating an atmosphere in which businesses can flourish and creating  an indispensable government support system.  One of the major industries on the Sunshine Coast is  tourism. This appears to be flourishing, in spite of a  variety of government-prompted task forces, committees and associations which have, over the years, taken  on the cause of promoting and marketing tourism on  the Sunshine Coast.  The good health of this industry becomes apparent to  most observers at about this time each year, as more  people flock to this Coast than can be handled by our  highways, campgrounds and accommodations.  It is therefore confusing to see Sechelt's 1990 budget  in which a total of $15,000 is allotted for tourism promotion through the Chamber of Commerce and Travel Sunshine Coast with a further $1000 tossed into the pot for an  unspecified source.  Travel Sunshine Coast is the tourism marketing  group which has been on the verge of financial collapse  due, in a large part, to the non-participation of tourism  operators. The Chamber of Commerce is primarily  composed of merchants who reap profits from the  tourist trade.  If Mayor Meredith's estimates of the current population of Sechelt are correct at 6500, that means every  man, woman and child is contributing approximately  $2.46 toward tourism services, marketing and promo-  'tjon.  We echo Alderman Kolibas' statement "I think the  merchants should do more for tourism." So should the  tourist operators.  Apology  The Coast News, and the undersigned personally,  apologizes to those residents of Pender Harbour who  were recently offended by a report on the annual general  meeting of the Pender Harbour Credit Union which appeared in these pages.  The article slipped past our scrutiny at a time of  editorial transition. It was not meant to give offence but  did so.  We will be suggesting to the young writer that this  beautiful world has still much that is monstrous in  greed, stupidity and injustice which are fit subjects on  which aspiring writers can sharpen their satiric fangs.  Most assuredly volunteer community groups are not be  so abused.  Again, our apologies for this, I think, uncharacteristic lapse from good taste.  ��� John Burnside  ���      <5 YEARS AGO  Captain William York "Billy" Higgs of Gibsons, has  been awarded the 1984 Halert C.

"Sometimes we take things  more slowly than some people  think we should but there's a  reason for it," said Mayor  Diane Strom.  She was commenting on a  remark made by Alderman  Lilian Kunstler in regard to the  dragging pace adopted by the  town in dealing with both the  Sunshine Coast Marine History  Society's Discovery Project and  the Downtown Revitalization  proposal.  The slow pace, the mayor  said, is important to determine  "what effects they (the projects)  will have on the commiT"'"  "'  A little later in the  when Kunstler moved to.1  third reading of the i  sial and emotive Gospel Ro  rezoning by-law, Strom stafetj  sharply that she definitely  wanted the by-law on the next  council meeting agenda "so a  decision can be made one way  or another."  Now, which of the above  proposals will have the greatest  impact on this community and  therefore merits a slow,  deliberated, and cautious examination by council before any  decision is made?  Is it a two-year boat building  project wrapped up with every  safeguard in the book; a change  in parking from angle to 90  degree, a lower speed limit and  a traffic island; or a 150-house  subdivision planned for one of  the best-loved, environmentally  sensitive areas on the Coast?  I think if council is going to  drag its heels, it should do so on  the Gospel Rock rezoning bylaw because the number of improprieties over the months  leading up to this point of the  by-law having been given second reading is quite  remarkable, even for Gibsons.  Last year we had the restructuring debacle, this year it's the  Gospel Rock by-law. Both  issues illustrate a rampant insen-  sitivity to the concerns of this  community on the part of council.  Firstly, there's the fact  Hayden Killam suddenly circumvented the town planner  with his rezoning by-law application and took it straight to  council instead. In his original  dealings with Killam, Rob  Buchan was following the  guidelines council had originally  laid out for him and had forewarned the developer about the  likelihood of public concern  over any proposed subdivision  of Gospel Rock.  At the April 30 Public Hearing, Killam, himself, stood up  and addressed this alleged two-  step around the planner. He  said he had been following the  points recommended by Buchan  but, after a meeting in the late  fall with the Mayor and Clerk  Administrator Lorraine Goddard, he had been advised by  them it was a rezoning applica  tion, not one for subdivision,  and therefore he should bring it  straight to council and not  worry about the careful steps  Buchan had advised.  When asked for their remarks  on this meeting the next night,  the mayor, appeared not to  remember what meeting- this  was and Goddard suggested  perhaps Killam had  "misunderstood something I  said."  It appears as if it was quite  the misunderstanding because  Killam was confident enough to  advertise his subdivision before  the by-law even.came before  council.  Also on April 30, Killam  answered the question: 'How  long has Ken Collins been  working for you,?'  "Fourteen days," he said.  That means Collins began  working at Secret Cove Marina  on April 16 and voted the next  night to recall for reconsideration Killam's rezoning by-law  after its defeat on April 3.  There is nothing in the  Municipal Act to define conflict  of interest but there are definitely ethics and rules of being an  alderman. Using your vote on  council to benefit your  employer, or as Collins would  have it, the person contracting  you, is probably as blatantly irresponsible as you can get.  Collins should have removed  himself from dealing with the  issue before he voted or the mo  tion should now be considered  invalid.  The April 30 public hearing  was attended by only two  aldermen and no formal record  of the lengthy discussions was  taken (the town's tape deck is  broken). Why?  The information the public  had to consider prior to the  hearing was vague and lacked  any significant facts and figures  to substantiate the developer's  claims in regard to the proposed  subdivision. It was also  significantly different to that offered in a handout.  The development of Gospel  Rock should be seen as a precedent, and guidelines for this and  any other future development  should be implemented now to  establish that fact. Before any  rezoning proceeds, there should  be an environmental study done  to determine what effects the  subdivision will have on this  sensitive piece of land.  Vague assurances the  developer "will preserve as best  possible the unique environmental features of the  property", is not good enough.  Neither is the vague 'fact' that  traffic will increase only IS per  cent. Who says IS per cent and  why? etc. etc. etc.  Coast resident Patricia Bald-'  win, a town planner in Vancouver for IS years, called this  rezoning by-law application "a  comedy of errors". Unfortunately, after the damage is done, it  won't be so funny.  Round the Coffee Pot  The challenge of tomorrow  by Caryl Worden  Earth Day 1990 has come and  gone in a flurry of green. That  the environment is The Cause of  the '90s is undisputed. Even  American television put aside its  ratings contest to present a two-  hour, star studded extravaganza  with casts from all networks appearing. When celebrities such  as Jack Lemmon, Bill Cosby  and Jane fonda get involved,  the public pays attention. What  congressional representative is  going to refuse a meeting with  Meryl Streep to discuss the  dangers of crop spraying?  Each of us can and must  make changes to preserve the  planet. Numerous books have  come out in the last year to  point us in the right direction,  offering simple solutions that  are effective without forcing  major lifestyle changes. But,  just as individuals in the industrialized nations begin to  take responsibility and reduce  their pollutive ways, people in  the developing world are stepping onto the waste cycle, which  has not been a way of life for  them.  A year ago I was at the end of  a six-month trek in South  America. The trip was an eye  opener when it came to consumerism. People in the Third  World aren't garbage creators;  not because they're environmentally enlightened, but  because they haven't had the  luxury of waste. Recycling or  reusing is a basic necessity of  survival.  In food markets and stores  you have no choice between  paper or plastic grocery bags.  You either bring your own bag  or risk juggling a week's worth  of produce in your arms. Vinyl  or cloth shopping bags are standard accessories for all income  levels.  Cardboard and paper are  hoarded. In Sucre, the capital  of Bolivia, we decided to ship  home some crafts we'd bought.  In this city of 80,000, it took us  a day and a half to find a vendor willing to sell us a cardboard carton. Newspapers are  shared by numerous readers,  then used repeatedly to wrap  Bottles are another valuable  commodity. To buy a large bottle of soda costs about a  quarter, if you drank it on the  premises. For take out, it cost a  dollar or more, with your  money refunded when you  returned the bottle. At bus and  train stations, vendors would  pour drinks into small plastic  bags (which were reused of  course), and stick a straw  through the open end. One of  the most appreciated gifts to  beggars was some pop or juice,  with the assurance that the bottle was also theirs to refund.  Throughout South America,  public transit has developed into  an art. Privately owned vehicles  are the exception rather than the  rule. Buses and trains are  always at double normal capacity, with people three and four to  a seat, filling the aisle, the doorways, and often hanging onto  luggage racks atop the vehicle.  Trucks were also a normal  travel mode, ranging from  large, cattle trucks to the  smallest pickup. And usually it  was standing room only to fit  the maximum number of people. Almost every car was a taxi,  and while you could pay for the  luxury of riding alone, it was  more common to share it with  four or five others in a shared  fare. Not just for across-town  rides, either, but for trips of  several hours between towns.  The only landfill we saw on  our trip was on the high slopes  of the city of La Paz in Bolivia.  And the way people were comb  ing the hillside, I doubt that  anything   reusable  was   left,  behind. i  But plastics, pesticides and  other First World trash is accumulating in South America.  Not in landfills, however, but in  the markets. AU those products  which are no longer salable here,  get dumped in Third World  laps. In the public markets are'  stall after stall of plastic goods-  rack after rack of polyester  shirts and dated slogan t-shirts;  and shelf after shelf of shoes,:  blister-packed toys and useless  gadgets.  Human nature being what it.  is,   these  previously  non-  wasteful nations get caught up  in the North American disease;  of  consumerism.   As   the  resulting   packaging   debris  builds, one wonders how they,-'  will cope with disposal. And a��:*  our technology provides more,  energy efficient vehicles and ap-''  pliances, our laws change to ban \  any number of toxic substances I  and  public  demand  forces j  manufacturers  to offer environmentally  acceptable  products, where will all those  unwanted  goods  end  up?^  Another trip to South American:  m five or 10 years may answers  that question.

Indeed, it is attracting interest all over North  America. Three or four ungraded years, during which spectacular development is known  to occur if properly nurtured,  will produce a new generation  of thinking, caring, creative, industrious young people. It is  that great!  Unfortunately,   any  parent  who assumes that this vibrant,  innovative   program   will  translate   spontaneously   and  smoothly into French, complete  with resource books, guides and  fully  trained   Francophone  teachers, is absolutely mistaken.  In  my  view,  every  child  j    should be able to experience  \    these primary years in English,  ���I    a sound basis for lifelong learn-  ���V   ing skills. If, during some of his  formal learning years, the child  elects to be instructed in a  language other than English,  that child's life will be enriched.  Language is learned at home,  at   the   parents'   knees.  Authorities warn that English  speaking families who expect  their children to be perfectly bilingual through school immersion programs are doomed to  disappointment. That is a cold,  hard fact of life.  The ill-informed missionary  zeal of intelligent persons passionately demanding that their  little children be immediately  immersed in French on entering  school is a sociological  phenomenon unique in the  history of education. Such  hysteria feeds on itself. Group  thinkers become entrenched,  immune to reason and  bewildered into a state of  disfunction, thanks to a vocal  and dedicated Immersion Clique.  We are fortunate to have, in  this district, one of the most  creative and dynamic superintendent in the provinces.  Little did he think when he  came here to help us that he  would be immersed in a soap  serial starring a group of fanatic  Early French Immersion fans  and a wishy-washy Board.  Unable to get on with the  tasks set for him in his job  description, is he ever tempted  to peruse the classified ads for  another district? He must be utterly fru .trated.  As a ratepayer in this district,  and one with more than a casual  interest in educational excellence, I ask the lobbyists to  analyse what you have achieved. Partly through your efforts,  the Board is committed to a  strong French program in our  schools.  However, not satisfied with  this, in your unrelenting pursuit  of a specific French program,  you have made a mockery of  the democratic process and  demoralized the very Board that  is trying to achieve the same  long term goal you claim for  yourselves.  You are guilty of generating  tension and stress among your  own children, in your families,  in your neighbourhoods. Your  negative persistence has appalled the entire community.  Education is never a win-lose  affair. Education is growth.  In this affair, not only the  children are invited to grow.  Education in this district is in  the hands of our elected Board  and Superintendent. Try to  believe with me that under their  care, your children will bloom  and grow, learn all sorts of  wonderful and useful things,  become as bilingual as they  choose to be, and ultimately  graduate well prepared for life  and living. I will close with a  thought for EFI's.  Quelqu'un disait d'un  homme tres personnel: il  brulerait votre maison pour se  faire cuire deux oeufs.

Naemnal Ule ol Car  TELEPHONE: MM11t  F��X: MM12t  TOLL FREE:    t-MM63-2051  The high cost of war  Editor:  Several months ago, the  Coast News published a letter 1  wrote in which I referred to  "tens of thousands" where I  should have written "hundreds  of thousands".  The subject was the activities  of the Gibsons Mayor's Task  Force on Drug Abuse.  The paragraph should have  read 'To brand as criminals  hundreds of thousands  (300,000) of Canadian youths  otherwise leading normal lives,  by virtue of their experimental  or recreational marijuana use  presents a fundamental problem  in a society founded on principles of justice and respect for  the law'.  I hope we all learn something  valuable about drugs and their  presence in our lives during  Drug Awareness Week.  However, more important  than the health risks of drug use  to individuals and society is the  devastating impact that the attempt to enforce a prohibition  of certain drugs has on the law.  This is terminal cancer. Be  aware! The selective criminalization of certain drugs is  radically contradictory and  hypocritical and thus commands much disrespect rather  than respect.  Health and Welfare Canada  reports thousands of deaths annually, directly attributable to  the abuse of alcohol and tobacco but the Justice Department  seeks the arrest and prosecution  of users of cannabis, a drug to  which no deaths are directly attributed.

I feel that the  member's opinions will be  economically biased. Health  matters are for doctors to determine, and the debate continues.  The Canadian Medical Association has long held the position that the present laws  against marijuana are a greater  threat than use of the drug. 1  think all drug use should be depenalized.  1 wish the RCMP would  make themselves aware of the  serious long and short term effects of the administration of  justice being brought into  disrepute, and support a change  in the law.

Art Giesbrecht  Special Events Director  Trade Show Organizer  Objects  Editor:  I object strenuously to the  write up of the Pender Harbour  Credit Union annual meeting.  Perhaps at some tables the  'wine was flowing' and there  was some giddiness. To indicate  that the meeting was a party is a  disservice to the hard working  people at the Credit Union.  Also to imply that Joan  Willcock is anything but competent is an insult.  Joan probably thought she  was among friends when she  made her comment.  I would guess that Diane's  plea did not reach the correspondent.  It was also too bad that he  did not see fit to mention the  tribute to my dear Gib who gave  so much to the Credit Union.

"It was better than the  PNE," said Art Biesbrecht.  coordinator of the trade show, a  comment that was echoed by  others.  "It was a real success for the  Chamber of Commerce, for  businesses and for public participants."  More than 1200 people attended last Friday and Saturday  as approximately 50 exhibitors  displayed their wares in the Gibsons Curling Rink. In addition  to the displays there was a food  and drink concession stand, and  free prize draws.  During the show the displays  were judged for appearance and  other categories. The judges  decided on the three prize winn-  ing exhibitors and two  Honourable Mentions.  Twigs, a business which sells  dried floral arrangements, won  first prize, with Dolphin Alarms  and Showpiece Gallery and  Custom Framing winning second and third, respectively.  Art Glass, Country Cottage and  Devries' Floor Covering received Honourable Mentions.  Janice Carter of Twigs was  "surprised and very happy" to  win first prize.

Cindy Buis, owner of  Showpiece Gallery and Custom  Framing, said the "public was  surprised and satisfied with the  quality of the displays." Buis  added the trade show was "good  exposure for merchants."  With all the glowing words of  praise, the inevitable question is  asked. What about next year?  Will there be another trade  show in 1991?  Definitely, say the organizers.  "The trade show is definitely  something that will be an annual event," said Giesbrecht.  Shirley Watson of Dolphin  Alarms said "next year the  show will be even bigger."  There may even be a covered  tent in the parking lot to house  our exhibitors, as the curling  rink ran out of space for displays, Watson said.  "The trade show left a whole  lot of people with a positive  feeling about Gibsons and its  business people," Giesbrecht  said.  Howe Sound  dumping  Dredged spoil from Vancouver Harbour that is dumped  in Thornborough Channel is  carefully tested for contaminants.  In a letter to the Sunshine  Coast Environmental Task  Force Hal Nelson, head of  Ocean Dumping Control of Environment Canada, stresses that  several federal and provincial  environmental agencies are consulted before permits are  granted for dumping.  Nelson went on to say that  studies have shown that "the  environmental impact of ocean  disposal upon the water column  is short-term and minimal; that  most of the contaminants contained in dredged materials tend  to remain bound in the  sediments and are not available  for uptake by marine life; and  that the greatest impact of  ocean disposal is physical  smothering which is localized in  the immediate area of the dump  site and short term in nature."  Nelson's letter went on to say  that on February 5, a load of  waste was dumped in Thornborough Channel where  "natural or background levels  of cadmium" are about 1.0  ppm (parts per million).  Although this level of cadmium  poses no threat to marine life or  human health due to consumption of marine life our department will not approve future  dumps in Howe Sound of Vancouver Harbour sediments."  "Don't they know that this  stuff is residual?" commented  Jeremy Frith. "It never goes  away."

Coast News, May 7,1990  by Ellen Frith  The April 30 Public Hearing  in Gibsons, the third such  meeting in connection' with the  Gospel Rock rezoning, was attended by well over ISO people  but only Aldermen Kunstler and  Alderman Jerry Dixon, who  chaired the meeting, and the  Town Planner were there from  the town. Apparently Alderman  John Reynolds was incapacitated with a bad back and  Mayor Diane Strom was out of  town. Alderman Collins was  also absent.  Many of the people present at  the meeting, which continued  until 11 pm with a large number  of participants standing around  the council chambers because of  the lack of seating, appeared to  feel the developer had failed to  satisfactorily address the community's main concerns including those of density, access,  drainage, environmental impact  and parkland.  Prior to the meeting, Killam  and his lawyer Michael Welsh,  distributed a handout listing '10  of ihe major questions and their  answers' as well as a rough site  plan of the development but  many at the meeting criticized  these answers as being vague  and unsubstantiated.  Alderman Dixon asked at the  outset of the meeting to hear  from anyone who felt positive  about the proposed development and got a few replies.  Tim Payne, for example,  who said he had a business in  Area E and lived in Area F told  the meeting: "A lot here just  want to stop things. Let people  develop their own private property."  The vast majority of those attending the meeting however,  felt concerned the town was being pushed to rezone the property too quickly.  There are always going to be  developers, Doug Roy said, and  development is "going to happen". Consequently, he added,  "They (the town) don't have to  rush it."  Patricia Baldwin, a resident  of Gower Point Road, and a  principal in the Vancouver company of Coopers & Lybrand  dealing with real estate and  strategic land planning spoke at  some length to the meeting.  She said it was difficult to  assess the rezoning application  and the subdivision proposal  because "the whole process has  been overwhelmed with improprieties.  "Gospel Rock is an area of  great concern to the community," said Baldwin pointing out  that in similar situations  elsewhere, a developer wishing  rezoning for such a sensitive  property would present a 50 to  60 page report with substantiated facts and figures.  "The developer has not  shown a significant understanding of those concerns," she  later told the Coast News.  Baldwin views this particular  rezoning as precendent setting  in this area which is bound to  become another bedroom community for Vancouver. Therefore, she said, it is extremely important to have good guidelines'*  for any potential development  in order to accommodate both  future growth and the quality of  life now existing on the Sunshine Coast.

"The whole process should be  thrown out and begun again."  In the April 30 handout, the  area surrounding the eagle tree  was no longer designated 'an  eagle sanctuary' but rather, was  included in the offered  parkland.  The original proposal of a  sanctuary contingent on eagles  nesting in the area was dropped  because "a lot of people took a  cynical view of this", Welsh  said, adding: "We have,  therefore, decided to deed the  whole area to the town (6.54  acres)."  The offer of 18 and a half  acres came the next day.  The subdivision's main accesses were shown in the handout as slated for Rosamund  Street, Chaster Road and  Gower Point Road in Area E  but Area E Director Jim  Gurney told the public hearing  the SCRD was opposed to such  a move.  "The Planning Committee  recommended the SCRD take  the position that it most  strenuously opposes the access  to the Gospel Rock Development from any street or road in  Electoral Area E with the possible exception that Chaster Road  could be used as a secondary access if and only if Chaster Road  is upgraded to a major road  standard of construction and  King Road is paved and opened  directly to Highway 101,"  Gurney said.  "Nobody is totally against  development of the area," he  added, saying a full development plan should be prepared  before anything is decided.  "The developer is not giving  you anything that he wouldn't  have done anyway," he told the  aldermen.

Rob Buchan  MUNICIPAL PLANNER & APPROVINQ OFFICER  CI  PA       |  Georcje    m    Gibsons  Care home's 10th anniversary  by George Cooper  The Kiwanis Village Care  Home auxiliary marked its  tenth anniversary at tea at the  Home on April 28.  The auxiliary, first organized  February 20, 1980, was  registered as a society in May of  that year - their objective to aid  and comfort those who reside in  Care Home.  And they have aided the  Home and the residents there in  many a worthy project and  brought comfort to those who  reside there through their  visiting and by remembering  birthdays with flowers and  cards sent to residents in  hospital.  The auxiliary has, over the  years, provided the Home with  a residents' kitchen, with personal emergency response  systems, with patio furniture  and (by concerted and intense  effort) the Home's minibus.  The minibus project was  headed by Amy Blain when she  was president. She persuaded  the community to donate, and a  successful campaign raised the  money to a happy conclusion.  Amy, by the way, along with  Lettie Dawson organized the  first Scouts and Cubs in this end  of the peninsula.  At the anniversary tea, corsages were presented to former  auxiliary presidents Amy Blain,  Marg Wheeler, and Rosemary  Fay, and to the present president, Marnie Qually. The auxiliary received a card which had  been made by some of the  residents and presented by Emily Hunt.  A sing-along with residents  and members of the auxiliary  was led by Pauline Webber ac  companied by Jean Clarke at  the piano.  The centre piece at the table  was a gift of the Sunshine Coast  Kiwanis club. Guests enjoyed  tea and sandwiches prepared  and served by the auxiliary aided by Care Home staff.  HERITAGE SOCIETY  The Gibsons Landing  Heritage Society held a well-  attended coffee and dessert party and sale of home-baking  April 21 in the Anglican church  hall in Gibsons, one of its fund-  raising projects for the restoration of former Women's Institute Hall which in recent  years has been the school  district maintenance shop.  Last February 24 one hundred attended their wine and  cheese party. The Society's next  event is a dinner and theatre  evening June 10 at the Omega  when Driftwood Players will  provide the theatre; two short  plays and a monologue. Watch  for further announcements.  A Canada Employment and  Immigration grant has provided  the Heritage Society with two  employees, and the Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum with one, for  a period of 26 weeks. Clint  Davy and Heather (Reid)  Horsnell are busy with Heritage  Society projects; Bee Jackson  works at the museum and maintains visiting hours for the  public.

"We expect more than 350 of  our students to participate in  this project as our contribution  towards cleaning up our community's environment," states  Sheila Hanna, spokesperson for  Gibsons Elementary School.  "The students will also be involved in sorting the garbage,  and certain items such as cans  and bottles will be collected for  recycling."  Pitch-In Week takes place  across the province and in other  parts of Canada during the  week of May 7 to 13, 1990 and  hundreds of thousands of  volunteers are expected to participate. Projects undertaken  range from cleaning up  neighbourhoods, parks and  wilderness areas to promoting  recycling and the need for  Canadians to reduce the  amount of waste which they  produce. More than 2.3 million  Canadians participated in Pith-  In Week in 1989.  "Keeping the environment  clean is most important. Our  cleanup will help to impress on  our students the amount of  waste which is disposed of improperly or mismanaged,"  states Mrs. Hanna, adding  "even though cleaning up is im  portant, educating people to  reduce, re-use, recycle and properly manage the remainder is  most important."  !'���) I0*^   M RAW III KR\ I'ANCAKI  '.'    , 111(1  \M \s I  WE ARE FEATURING A COMPLETE  HOME COOKED TURKEY DINNER  with nil the trimmings 6t delicious desserts!  5 P.M.

Sechelt Municipal District  Engineering and Operational  Services Committee was told by  their engineering department at  the May 3rd meeting. Engineer  Derek Ashford told the committee it would cost "millions of  dollars" to construct right now.  In a letter to Mrs. Biggers,  Ashford explained, "I believe  that your request notes a very  valid concern for pedestrian and  cyclist safety alongside an  arterial road that at times accommodates very heavy ferry  generated traffic. Although  Highway 101 is a provincial  highway the cost of sidewalks  alongside are 100 per cent  municipal cost."  Mike Shanks suggested a letter be drafted to the Ministry of  Highways asking that in future,  during any road construction on  that stretch, they give consideration to including a wide  shoulder as they have in parts of  the regional district.  Alderman Bob Wilson added  that costs might be reduced considerably if Highways, the  Sechelt Indian Government  Distict and Sechelt all cooperated in the development.  The bottom line, however,  was put forth by Bob Graham,  "We're all sympathetic to the  idea, but there's no cash."  In his letter to Biggers,  Ashford explained the lack of  money within the current  budget for such a project but  added, "This project will  therefore be reconsidered by  council at the time of the 1991  budget deliberations.

Peter has been  gardening intensively for many  years, and for the last IS or so  he has been testing his method  of weed control and harmony  with the bane of every gardener,  the slug.  His method is pretty basic  and simple. Every type of  gardener can use it. You do not  have to be an expert. Peter has  ���written a rather long and intensive paper on the subject of  mulching. If this method has  worked for Peter, it should  work for everyone else.  Neighbours who couldn't believe his huge weed-free garden  have often acknowledged it as  the "best they'd ever seen".  Mulching is the placement of  organic materials on the surface  of the soil where plants of any  kind are growing. The 'Permanent Mulch System' known as  'Permaculture', involves year  round covering of the garden,  mulch that is never dug in and  seldom removed. This creates a  weed-free environment and  eliminates the digging and turning of the garden soil.  Peter has 30 reasons for practicing permanent year round  mulching, but here are a few:  elminates hoeing, prevents  crusting, and even protects  against cats (to some extent).  Mulching does, however,  have a few problems. They are:  promotes and harbours slugs,  the soil under the mulch warms  up slower in the spring, some  hot weather crops may be slowed down by the cooler soil,  robins and wind can fling mulch  over seedlings.  There are solutions to all of  these drawbacks, though. Keep  the mulch wet, cover exposed  soil with plastic, delay mulching  until seedlings become established, but best of all "don't worry  about it".  These are some steps you can  take to try Peter's sawdust  mulch method: pull back any  mulch already present to expose  trie soil fOr two to six indite   '  along the row; scratch in at this  point organic fertilizers, or  sprinkle on after planting; make  planting furrows a little deeper  than normal; add sawdust and  sow seed in the furrow right in  the sawdust; cover the seeds and  mulch along each row.  As the seedlings come up so  too will some weeds. At this  point it is crucial to weed and  then lay down another layer of  mulch on top of the first.  When plants are three to four  inches high, use a somewhat  coarser material such as grass  clippings, hay or straw. A side  dressing of fertilizer such as  manure, seaweed, compost,  anything organic should be put  down now. Water well.  Try it ��� you'll like it, unless  you're like me and get some sort  of wierd satisfaction from pulling out those weeds.

Abuse In BC  The drugs and alcohol abuse  problem is greater in British  Columbia than in the rest of  Canada. Some statistics to think  about:  - British Columbia has the  highest per capita consumption  of alcohol in Canada.  - Approximately 300,000 people in British Columbia are  emstolks Hunting  & Fishing Supplies  ���      885*4090 . .  t*\    ���  Remington  Ruger  Winchester  RCBS  Colt  Daiwa  Berkley  Caddis  Eagle Claw  5649 Twado St.,  Sechelt ,  (Green Gables  Building)  alcoholics or have a serious problem with alcohol.  - British Columbia has the  highest rate of heroin offences  in the country.  - British Columbia has the second highest rate of marijuana  offences in the country.  - British Columbia has the  third highest rate of cocaine offences.  - In 1980, close to 500 people  in BC died from cirrhosis of the  liver.  - Between 70 per cent and 80  per cent of males serving time in  BC penal institutions were  under the influence of alcohol  at the time they committed their  crime, or alcohol was a contributing factor.  - Over half of all domestic  violence in British Columbia is  alcohol-related.  The cost to all British Columbians for policing and court  costs, and prisons and treatment centres are staggering. In  1987, it cost the British Columbia health care and social service  system over half a billion dollars  to deal with problems related  directly to alcohol abuse.  The figure probably runs  even higher, because many of  the ongoing health problems  caused by excessive or prolonged use of alcohol and drugs are  commonly diagnosed as an illness such as heart disease, high  blood pressure, pneumonia,  and many mental illness.  People who abuse drugs or  alcohol miss work three to Ave  times more than non-users. This  means higher premiums on  benefits plans, costs to  employers for overtime and  substitute workers, lowered  production capacity, and  general inefficiency.  Drinking or taking drugs on  the job can result in serious accidents, damaged equipment,  higher injury compensation,  and worse.  The greatest cost may be the  terrible toll abuse takes on  human lives. The pain and suffering of those whose lives are  affected by an abuser can never  be measured.  Immediate family members  (especially children) are easily  subjected to the misery caused  by someone who abuses drugs  or alcohol. The emotional scars  that come from living in a home  with an abuser usually last a  lifetime. And children of  abusers are at great risk of  becoming abusers themselves.  Sechelt  Scenario  by Margaret Watt, MSJ364  On Saturday, April 28, the  all-girl team from Sechelt  Elementary entered the finals of  Olympics of the Mind in Vancouver. They placed second in  the Spontaneous Problem, an  event where the young ones had  only a few minutes to solve a  problem.  They then went on to win a  special trophy with their Structures in Harmony. Each year  only five of these trophies are  awarded. The girls were praised  for their creativity and risk-  taking abilities in putting  together the structure.  This involved deciding to  dismantle the structure with  barely minutes to go, and starting the whole thing over. Congratulations girls, we're proud  of you!  I should mention that three  teams from Roberts Creek also  entered the finals. They placed  second in Spontaneous Humour  and third in Style.

The increasing number of  can parking along Ocean Ave.  is causing Sechelt Municipal  District Council some concern  for the safety of children in the  area. Many people are parking  illegally during baseball games  at Hackett Park and Sechelt  Elementary School, leaving lit-  .   tie room for traffic.  Additionally,   council   has  ' concerns about safety hazards  created by the dropping off and  picking up of children just  . before .and after school. The  visibility is poor, Alderman  Joyce Kolibas pointed out at a  committee meeting, held May  3rd.  Various alternatives were  discussed, including bringing in  a towing company to enforce  the no parking regulations.  Alderman Bob Wilson  pointed out that the daytime  problem may be addressed  soon, when the school district is  required to come up with plans  for on-site parking for the  school. The discussion, he said,  "...is timely", and suggested  that engineer Derek Ashford  delay making specific recommendations until the school  district's intentions are made  clear.

Some of you may remember  a task force that toured our province last year comprised  primarily of representatives  from government ministries  who visited 21 communities  throughout BC. To our annoyance the Sunshine Coast was  not included in those visits. The  task force was receiving submissions from various seniors and  interested organizations to compile a report on issues of concern to seniors.  On behalf of our branch our  then-president, Mike Timms,  asked me to submit a rough  draft of a presentation to be  made at the nearest Task Force  meeting, which was held in Burnaby. In due course the document was finalized and  presented to the Task Force, but  unfortunately, due to a time element at the meeting, our  representative was unable to  discuss the contents of the submission with the members.  This week the Task Force  report in all its splendor has arrived in the mail with  acknowledgement of our input.

The first section is entitled  "The Road To The Future"  and stresses the concerns of  seniors province-wide along the  following lines:  1. Preservation of the personal independence of seniors.  2. Foster informal helping  networks for seniors.  3. Favour community-based  services for seniors  4. Respect the productive  capacities of seniors  5. Ensure that seniors have  easy access to programs and services  6. Accommodate the needs of  seniors with "general" programs where appropriate  7. Provide for consultation  with seniors.  The second section of the  brochure deals with the immediate concerns of seniors  province-wide under the following headings: Health &  "Wellness, Financial ' Security,  Choice in housing, Transportation access, Personal security  and social and personal fulfillment.  The task force has recommended specific approaches  that government can take, as  circumstances permit, to address the identified concerns.  They take a positive and optimistic view of British Columbia's ability to create a better  age for seniors subject, of  course, to available funding,  but they also specify that minor  adjustments to certain programs may be implemented at  minimum cost.

Symptoms of Alcoholism  Mcoholistn is characterized  by a number of symptoms  which, lor the most part, occur  in tt progressive sequence. Each  alcoholic has his or her unique  history, yet the path from occasional social drinking to late  stage alcoholism presents a  remarkably predictable pattern  of symptoms.  When reading the symptoms  listed below, there may be  several thai don't seem to apply  lo your drinking history or your  lamily member's. Likewise  there may be some symptoms  ih.it you see occurring in a dif-  fereni order, Look at the overall  pattern of symptoms before  deciding if they are relevant.  Ii takes ctwrage lo honestly  examine one's life. Take your  time, Ihe road to recovery  begins with acknowledging that  a problem exists.  hi the following list "he" has  he-en used interchangeably with  ���she" as alcoholism does not  discriminate on the basis of sex.  1. Increased "relief" drink-  Itig, Increasingly the person is  di 'liking for the expected effects  il alcohol: eg. relief from tendon or boredom.  2. Increased tolerance. For  example, lie now requires more  alcohol lo get the same "high".  .1. Blackouts. This is alcohol  induced amnesia, not passing  out. Here the individual may  not be able to recall what he  ..liel hi how lie got home.  4. Met'itkini! drinks. Hiding  bottles and privately mixing the  sireingci drinks for himself are  examples,  5. Urgency In get that first  think; uiilping drinks.  (i. feelings of guilt and/or  emli!irrii.vMtii'iii. Having heard  the concerns and complaints  from his lamily, he avoids  listening lo anything that calls  attention to ihe drinking  behaviour. He may also be em-  i'.iiiasscd as he is aware he is  drinking more often and getting  more intoxicated.  7. Preoccupation wilh alcohol. She is planning for more  drinking occasions. "Party"  means ill inking.  K. Loss of control. She does  not scent able to slop drinking  whin others do. She went to a  dinner  with  no  intention  of  drinking heavily and finds  herself drunk. A physical  dependence on alcohol may be  present in the steady drinker.  For the binge drinker, the compulsion to get drunk turns the  social drinking occasion into a  full bender.  9. Alibis or rationalizations  for drinking.  10. Extravagant behaviour.  To compensate for real or imagined shortcomings, he may  buy his wife flowers or the kids  may get extra spending money.  Meanwhile the rent may not be  paid and other bills may be accumulating.  11. Increased aggression and  irritability. As with the extravagant behaviour, it can be  unpredictable.  12. Periods of abstinence or  "going on Ihe wagon". He has  decided to quit drinking for a  while, perhaps to orove that he  really isn't alcoh jlic. This may  occur at a period o persistent  or deep remorse.  13. Change of drinking pal-  tern. For example, the rye  drinker vows to drink only  vodka.  14. Increased alcohol centred  behaviour. She hides her bottles, avoids her non-drinking  friends and loses interest in the  activities she used to enjoy.  15. Increased isolation. He is  drinking alone. Even in the pub,  he looks isolated.  16. Intense self pity.  "Telephonitis" may develop.  17. Geographic escape. Some  alcoholics change jobs or move  to another town in a vain attempt to escape the many problems that are building.  18. Unreasonable resentments. He finds flaws in  everything. He is very bitter and  blames everyone else for his  drinking.  19. Family breakdown  and/or problems on Ihe job.  The non-alcoholic spouse has  taken over duties that the  alcoholic can no longer be  trusted with, eg. banking,  childcare. Separation is now  seriously considered. The  deteriorating work performance  is leading to possible firing.  20. Deteriorating health. He  is eating and sleeping poorly.  Overall health is a problem. He  may now be willing to seek  medical help, but nol for his  alcoholism. He may also be  abusing other drugs.  21. Morning drinks. Tremors  may be present.  22. Lengthy intoxications.  Previously his benders may  have been from two to four  days. Now the benders may go  on for weeks and sometimes  months.  23. Obsession with drinking.  Securing supply and getting intoxicated is now the individual's  first priority even though there  is a decrease in pleasure. In  desperation, he may drink  anything if his usual alcoholic  beverages aren't available.  24. Lowering of standards.  Her dependency on alcohol is so  great she will beg, borrow, lie or  steal to protect her habit. Personal standards of hygiene and  attire are ignored. She now  drinks, and/or sleeps, with people who previously were  thought to be below her status.  25. Loss of tolerance. He  now shows signs of drunkenness  ,  after   drinking   amounts   of  alcohol significantly lower than  the amounts he used to drink.  26. Tremors. Previous tremors were temporarily controlled  by drinking alcohol. Now the  shakes are more pronounced  and alcohol gives little relief.  27. Indefinable fears. She has  indefinable or imagined fears.  She is simply afraid.  28. Insanity or death. This is  the end result of unchecked progressive alcoholism. Alcohol  related psychosis is caused by ,j  brain damage. Alcoholics are at  high risk for early death because  of disease (eg. cirrhosis, cancer)  and dangers inherent in their  lifestyle (eg. auto accidents,  violent crime, house fires and  suicide).  This progression of symptoms can be interrupted at  anytime by what we call a "moment of truth". Here the  alcoholic has reached a point  where the pain or guilt has finally sounded a personal alarm. He  no longer believes his phoney  denials. He admits he is  alcoholic and is willing to accept  help.  r  The Responsibility issues.

Alcoholism presents a progression of remarkably predictable and almost universal  symptoms and behaviours.  Many of the symptoms revolve  around the concept of denial.  Much of the alcoholic's energy  is invested in denying the facts  and consequences of the  alcoholic's drinking.  As alcoholism progresses, the  alcoholic becomes more and  more preoccupied with drinking. Alcohol takes on a high  priority in life. The alcoholic  wants to protect the supply,  fight off any threats to drinking  and defend against the guilt and  pain that have been a struggle to  avoid. Friends and family may  have served to help cushion the  alcoholic from consequences of  drinking (eg. covering at work)  and this too serves to protect or  deny the alcoholism.  When we say an alcoholic is  "deep in denial" we do not  mean that the alcoholic has  simply been lying. Rather, an  alcoholic can evade, minimize,  obscure, distract and confuse  the facts of drinking in ways  that are so pervasive and  automatic as to suggest they  could not have all been acts of  premeditated deception. This is  not to excuse the alcoholic. And  indeed alcoholics do consciously  lie at times. The point is that the  concept of alcoholic denial  refers to the many ways  alcoholics avoid facing the  severity of the situation. Denial  is an essential part of  alcoholism. Denial allows the  progressive deterioration to  continue.  While alcoholics do not have  a monopoly on denial, they are  experts. The following are some  of the most common techniques  of denial.  1. Simple Denial. This is  straightforward lying. "No  (hie), I had nothing to drink,  Officer."  2. Ralionallzations/Excuses.  Blaming. One or more people  may be targets of blame. "If  only so and so wouldn't do such  and such, 1 wouldn't drink so  much."  Inlellectualization. Some  alcoholics have very elaborate  or well articulated reasons.  "I've read that alcohol dilates  the capillaries of the brain  allowing freer thought."  Minimizing. The alcoholic  admits drinking but not how  much. The car door that was  smashed "really only has a tiny  scratch."  Self-Pity. "I deserve a drink.  If you had gone through what 1  have, you would realize that  drinking is the least of my prob-  ems."  3. Distractions.  Comparisons. "Oh Yeah!  Well you drink too!" "If you  think I am bad, you should see  John, he drinks like a fish."  Humour. Some alcoholics  laugh it off and we often laugh  with them. It is hard to seriously  address a problem if we are  distracted by comedy.  Changing the topic. The  alcoholic may ask how you are,  or how the team played this  season, etc.  4. Smoke screens.  Hostility. The alcoholic may  respond to any discussion of  drinking with such anger and intimidation (physical or verbal)  that the confronter becomes  jumbled, scared and learns to  avoid that topic.

Mark Brunke will look at when helping  doesn't help. Family and friends are often at their wits' end  when trying to help someone who is chemically dependent.  Often people get stuck feeling that it is their responsibility to  get the person sober, and in the course of trying, they suffer  in terms of self-esteem, energy, money and love. This promises to be a very informative workshop, exploring ways to  lovingly detach.  Location: Marine Room, 7:30 PM, Tuesday, May 8.  ILLICIT STREET DRUGS  Sgt. Jim Simpson of the RCMP Drug Awareness Squad will  present 2 seminars. The first one will be to the high school  students at Elphinstone, the second one will be to professionals and concerned  individuals. Many drugs have changed over the years. This  workshop will deal with illegal street drugs, their  physiological and sociological effects.  Locations: Elphinstone Cafeteria, 1:15 PM and the Marine  Room, 7:30 PM. Both workshops are on Wednesday, May 9.  DECISION MAKING  In this workshop, Chris Wilson (sponsored by Finning Tractor) will speak to the Grade 8, 9, and 10 students of  Elphinstone on the topic of 'Positive Self Image'. When faced with difficult decisions a positive self image helps lead  students in the direction they want to go, hopefully resisting  peer pressure.  Location: Elphinstone Gymnasium, 1:15 PM  Wednesday, May 9.  FETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROME  Sharon Petzold, the Gibsons Public Health Nurse, will address the Grade 11 and 12 students of Elphinstone on the  damage that occurs to the fetus when alcohol is consumed  during pregnancy.

Understanding Alcoholic Denial  Continued from page 14  Playing Dumb. Here the  alcoholic plays out a tedious  series of questions and bland  responses. The confronter may  give up, thinking, "Oh well, he  doesn't even know what I am  talking about".  "MM. This is one of the most  tiring techniques. The alcoholic  will ask for times, dates, locations, collaborating witnesses,  etc. The alcoholic will try to  turn a simple confrontation into  a legal trial of evidence.  5. Compliance.  Agreeing. Alcoholics may  agree with everything you say  just to shut you up. Inside they  may mutter to themselves and  carry on drinking.  Empty Promises. Recovery  does not rely on promises, it is  built on commitment.  On the Wagon. The alcoholic  may agree to stay dry for a fixed  period of time to prove a point  or cite previous dry periods as  proof there is no problem.  How should I respond to  these forms of denial?  Here are some rules of  thumb, if you want to give  someone feedback about their  drinking, keep it simple. State  the facts, avoid any judgmental  words or attitudes and do not  get drawn into argument. If you  feel intimidated by the alcoholic  (eg. they are hostile) you can  preface any comments with a  polite, "Would you like to hear  what I see happening..could  you hear me out?"  That is no guarantee the  alcoholic wouldn't blow up, but  it helps to get the alcoholic to  own some responsibility for  dialogue. Stay on topic. Do not  get pulled into distractions. The  alcoholic will likely feel very  defensive and may act as though  you are putting the alcoholic  down. Again, if you state your  observations in a factual, yet  caring way, it will help the  alcoholic to see that the drink-''  ing not the personality is the  topic.  Avoid the word alcoholism.  People still have tunnel vision  and overreact to the word.  Where you may end up using  the word, don't push it at the  start.  Is It possible for someone to  be alcoholic and not have any  denial?  Yes, this is possible, but not  probable. There are alcoholics  who are quite up front about  their drinking. They seem to be  realistic about the consequences  of their drinking yet declare that  they have no desire to quit. This  type of alcoholic is rare. Often  this is a compliant alcoholic  who is trying to fool himsfclf  and the world that he has owned up to reality, made his choice  to drink and therefore it is okay  to deteriorate with eyes open.  Cynicism can be seen as a  form of denial. This is different  from pessimism, as the cynical  alcoholic outright rejects any  point or reason for change.  Recovery begins when the  alcoholic has a moment of truth  and at least cares. When the  alcoholic's denial system collapses there is a renewed sense  of possibility. The alcoholic can  then make a commitment, rather than an empty promise, to  sobriety. By not getting pulled  into the alcoholic's system of  denial we are helping the  alcoholic towards recovery.

The meeting was informed by  Chairman Billy Griffith that,  although the expansion is still in  the conceptual stage, the Pender  Harbour and District Health  Society (PHDHS) has already  received $15,000 in private  donations.  MLA Harold Long confirmed that the PHDHS is eligible to  apply for an $80,000 'GO BC'  grant which Long promised to  'dog through'.  The departure of dentist Dr.  Kingsbury was discussed briefly  and Griffith assured the  meeting that no one wanted Dr.  Kingsbury to go but differences  about how the dental wing of  the clinic should operate were  not resolvable.  The discussion of clinic expansion foresaw private and  corporate donations of  $100,000 with the outstanding  balance of perhaps $150,000 going to referendum. The meeting  was told that taxes on a  $100,000 home would go up $15  the first year and $9 per year for  an additional II years to  finance the expansion.  A plaque will be erected with  the names of all individuals who  make charitable donations to  the expansion project. The list  will include the names of two  youngsters, aged five and six  years, who have already jointly  contributed $5 to the cause.  __    Wtm'ie itamtmd'ie u  __  aAUUe**'*, ��ay 't^mOon  at EXTRAS on  SATURDAY, May 12  Outdoor tables with many  unique handcrafted items  ��� or ���  Make your own gift from  our great selection of beads.

Coast News, May 7,1990  Job search difficulties  by Caryl Worden  Finding a job can be difficult,  even with post-secondary training and years of work experience as a back up. For those  with a mental handicap, learning disability, language barrier  or a lifetime of hardships, getting employment can be a distant dream.  But those people now have an  opportunity locally to get training and work experience  through a program offered by  the Sunshine Coast Employment Development Society  (SCEDS). The 40-week Vocational Training Program  teaches basic life skills such as  grooming, communication,  time management, and all the  do's and don'ts of job searching  from preparing a resume to  handling an interview. In the  program's second phase, participants choose one of three  work training areas - landscape  maintenance, housekeeping or  food services - which includes  both classroom and hands-on  learning. In the final section,  students get 12 weeks of job  placement.  This is geared for people who  face significant barriers to  employment," explained program manager Carol Gregson.  The need for such a program  was identified two years ago by  the Sunshine Coast Association  for the Handicapped (SCAH).  A proposal to Capilano College  got the ball rolling and additional funding has come  through Canada Employment.  Previously such training was  only available on the Lower  Mainland which made it unattainable for many SCAH  clients. "Having to deal with  schedules, ferries and the stress  of going off coast is difficult for  most of us, and unmanageable  for those people who needed  this training," said Gregson. Of  the 25 similar projects in the  Lower Mainland, the Sunshine  Coast program is the first rural  one.  Gregson, who was hired in  November to implement the  program locally, has worked extensively in vocational training  including a government program in the recreational field  with the Inuit of the Northwest  Territories.  The first program class has  nine participants. Four  being trained in landscape  maintenance which includes  learning the basics of lawn and  garden care with on-the-job experience at places such as  Rockwood Gardens, Milore  Nursery and the Kirkland Centre.  The housekeeping program  includes training in health care  institutions as well as in the  hospitality industry. The five  women in the current session  have worked at St. Mary's  Hospital, the Kirkland Centre,  and Rockwood.  Gregson said that at least 36  other potential participants  have been identified for the program, but that each session is  limited to 12 students. "The  program is strictly geared to the  individual," Gregson explained.  "Each student learns at a dif-  Nanoose Bay  submarine  NUKES OR NO NUKES?  Thursday night the Los  Angeles Class Submarine, the  "La Jolla", arrived at Nanoose  Bay and shortly after was  visited by Nanoose Conversion  Campaign representatives who  approached the sub by rubber  dinghy and said something to  the effect of, "Either tell us  you're not carrying nuclear  weapons or go away."  The submarine personnel remained silent, but a security  team soon showed up to chase  away the dinghy and its crew.  The assumption is that the La  Jolla is carrying Tomahawk  nuclear cruise missies.  ferent rate, that's why it's important to properly match an  employer with a trainee."  Prior to job placements,  employers are given a workshop  on working with the special  needs students and Gregson said  that community response has  been supportive.  "This really is a community  based program," she said.  "Not only regarding the placement, but also in the training."  "Because of the tourism industry here on the Coast,  housekeeping and food services  were identified as good areas to  provide employment," Gregson  said. "And the retirement community here makes landscaping  an appropriate area."  She explained that each year  the project will be evaluated,  with the possibility of adding  new training areas. An advisory  board is being formed, to be  made   up   of  representatives  from education, special needs  groups, government and local  business.  Anyone interested in finding  out student eligibility requirements, or employers in  terested in the job training and  placement should contact Carol  Gregson at SunCoast Vocational Program, 885-2308 or  drop in to the offices at 5674  Teredo Street in Sechelt.

That represents about  $1 per person on the whole  Coast, and the increase in individual taxes will be something  like dimes and quarters. But it  will make a big difference to the  individual artists in terms of  enabling them to do what they  do."  Wilson went on to explain  that the money would be controlled by the regional district,  with arts groups submitting  their budgets for the board's approval.  "It's not just a blank cheque  for individual artists," he said.  "The e\rts Liaison Committee  will be making recommendation  for expenditures to the Finance  Committee of the regional  district.

MARTIN'S SHELU  11557 School Road, & Gower Pt.|  ���886-2572  f  Calls on federal government  SCRD calls again for  nuclear-free Sound  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District has called upon the  federal government to declare  Nanoose Bay and Georgia Strait  a nuclear weapons free zone and  to establish a nuclear emergency  plan to protect Sunshine Coast  residents.  The unanimous resolution  comes after visits to Nanoose by  two US nuclear submarines in  February and a resulting petition to the district organized by  the Sunshine Coast Peace Committee.  The resolution notes that an  accident or fire aboard a  nuclear-powered or nuclear  armed vessel at Nanoose Bay  'could threaten the lives and  health of thousands' on the  Sunshine Coast and 'cost  billions of dollars for which  there is no legal liability'.  It states that until nuclear  reactors and weapons are banned from BC, the federal government should 'establish a nuclear  emergency plan in co-operation  with the...district's Provincial  Emergency Program which will  include a radiation monitoring  system for the safety and well-  being of all Sunshine Coast  residents'.  This is the second local  government body that has  recently called for federal cooperation in emergency planning at Nanoose. Last October,  Parksville council asked the  Department of National  Defence for its emergency plan,  but has so far had no response.  Nanoose Conversion Campaign (NCC) spokesperson  Laurie MacBride noted that the  long-awaited emergency plan,  which Commander Dan McVi-  car pledged last December to  make public "in the New  Year", is still not forthcoming.  "First they said 'a couple of  months', then 'June', and now  they're talking about 'maybe'  releasing it in the fall", said  MacBride. "But even if they do,  it won't include local residents,  the plan will only cover  CFMETR personnel and will  end at the base gates."  NCC is pleased with the Sunshine Coast resolution and is  calling on the regional district of  Nanaimo to take a similar initiative.  "Local residents are at risk  each time a nuclear vessel comes  to Nanoose," said MacBride.  According to information  released by Greenpeace, at least  17 nuclear vessels that have  been at Nanoose have had accidents elsewhere. MacBride  said that while emergency planning is needed, it's not a real  answer.  "We must prevent accidents  altogether by banning these  vessels form our waters," she  said, adding that "Local  governments will need to lead  the way - it's obvious Ihe federal  government is not about to  act."

More than a TV Store    fcoo. s:oo  Home Electronics  Sales & Service  SUNSHINE COAST TV LTD.  5674 Cowrie St., Sechelt 885-9816  Not long after this, another  movie offer comes in. This one  is from the critically acclaimed  director, Stanley Kubrick and  promises a class A production,  possibly with Kirk Douglas in  the lead role. This sounds like a  decent proposition.  Kubrick, riding on the  strength of films like Paths oi  Glory and presently working on  Spartacus, is definitely a class  act. Wilson signs the contract.  Kubrick takes out a 20 year option on his story. A heartening  amount of money rolls into the  Wilson coffers.  Television beckons. The CBC  has recently introduced a new  show called Front Page  Challenge. Herb Wilson is picked as a mystery guest and appears on the national network.  One of the panelists, then as  now, is Pierre Berton, still a  journalist but just embarking  on a highly successful career as  the author of best selling  historical books. Berton arranges to do a story on Wilson  for Macleans magazine.  The two get together and the  project gets underway. Then  Berton, always an indefatigable  researcher, uncovers the old  scandal at Kingston Prison. The  homosexual implications repel  him. He abandons the story and  moves on to other matters.  Herb Wilson, sensing the  reason, is mildly shattered.  The deal with Stanley  Kubrick also begins to run  awry. Kubrick having written  an initial script himself, passes  the job on to two other screen  writers. None of them can come  up with a satisfactory ending.  Eventually, the director writes  Wilson, suggesting they climax  the film with a spectacular  breakout from San Quentin in  which the safecracker is killed.  Herb Wilson bristles at the  very idea. The facts must be  followed in this regard. He  refuses to be fictionalized into  his grave. He writes Stanley  Kubrick accordingly. The project is shelved and the film is  never made.  Interest in Wilson begins to  fade again. The Signet pocket  book, never widely distributed  in Canada, goes out of print.  Obscurity closes in again.  Wilson begins to write a series  of columns for the Courtenay  newspaper, mostly concerned  with crime prevention. In a  short format, his flowery mannerisms are less pronounced.  The columns are well received.  In 1959 Herb Wilson elects to  write a column about the  relative ease of shoplifting. To  illustrate his point, he actually  goes to a Courtenay store and  lifts a few items. Unfortunately,  he is caught red-handed and  charged with minor theft.  It is raw meat Tor the journalists. 'King of the Safecrackers' lowers his sights', ring  the headlines, '$16,000,000 thief  caught pilfering groceries'.  Wilson appears in court  before a hard-line magistrate.  "Wilson," he booms, "were it  not for your age, 1 would give  you a jail term. You arc hereby  assessed a $10 fine."  Herb Wilson is mortally embarrassed by the scornful  publicity. It is time to soldier  on. He and Amelia sell the  Courtenay cottage and move  back to the mainland, this time  settling in the tiny village of  Horseshoe Bay.  Wilson's legend is faltering  and he has been humiliated to  boot. He determines to reestablish himself.  He cajoles Amelia into painting a series of lurid canvasses,  based on his prison experiences.  She complies readily.  When the paintings are completed, the Wilsons open a  gallery, augmented by the work  of several other local artists. But  the main focus is on Wilson  himself, every inch the 'King of  the Safecrackers' again.  The strange art gallery attracts customers but draws the  wrath of many local residents.  About this time Herb Wilson  and Amelia have a serious falling out. She packs up her gear  and leaves him.  Herb Wilson is left with the  contested gallery on his hands.  He decides to move the operation into Vancouver, charge admission and change the whole  nature of the enterprise.  To be continued...

Rhythms  of Life  The old devil moon  by Penny Fuller  This bevy of beautiful "unmarried daughters" chinned a near-capacity opening night crowd as  well as the swashbucklers in Lyn Vernon's "Pirates of Penzance". ���rm BumMe photo  At the Twilight  Spirited Pirates of Penzance  delights opening night crowd  by John Burnside  The Sunshine Coast Music  Society's production of The  Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert  and Sullivan opened an eight-  day run at the Twilight Theatre  on Friday night, May 4, and the  first night audience, near  capacity, obviously delighted in  the rollicking good humour and  energetic presentation of the  piece.  Gilbert and Sullivan have  given us here a tender-hearted  group of pirates, a timidly  resolute body of policemen, a  bevy of lovely and unmarried  daughters belonging to the 'very  model of a modern major  general'. The whole revolves  around a true blue hero with a  highly developed sense of duty  which sees him now a pirate and  now a scourge of pirates as his  vision of his duty switches with  circumstance.  The Sunshine Coast Music  Society has sent this cheerful  melange swirling around the  modified stage of the Twilight  Theatre with a quite splendid  mixture of good singing, fine  orchestral music, and  sometimes quite outstanding  choreography.  Truly exceptional in the role  of the romantic female lead is  Arline Collins. Ms Collins'  trained and beautiful voice  dances like a demented butterfly  and her winsome and charming  stage presence radiates with  energy and wit.  Other performers of note are  Joel Bornstein as the Pirate  King on this night, alternating  in the role in successive performances with Bob Zornes. Bornstein swashbuckled cheerfully as  the leader of the tender-hearted  pirates.  David Dykstra was a handsome and tuneful Frederic, the  duty-haunted herq, and Bill  Walkey had some absolutely  delightful moments as the Major General.  The ensemble playing of the  pirates, the policemen, and the  young ladies is delightfully effective and energetic and director Edo Boersma, conductor  Lyn   Vernon,   and   choreo  grapher Karen Boothroyd have  served their enthusiastic players  very well indeed.  i Much thanks are due, also, to  the self-effacing but indispensable members of the orchestra.  But thanks above all to Lyn  Vernon who in the past few  years has been the spearhead of  remarkably effective productions of Jesus Christ, Superstar,  Fiddler on the Roof, and now  The Pirates of Penzance. Three  very different experiences of the  musical theatre united by the  professionalism Ms Vernon  coaxes from her largely amateur  associates and the delight which  they have brought the audiences.  The Pirates of Penzance will  play Tuesday through Saturday  evenings and Sunday matinees  until Sunday, May 13. Do  yourself a favour. Don't miss it.  ������������������ ��������  That old devil moon - it gets  blamed off and on for just  about everything from  headaches to earthquakes. It's  'common knowledge' that full  moons are particularily bad.  Police stations and hospitals go  crazy under full moons, it's  said.  Like a lot of things that are  'common knowledge' there is  some truth in this but it has  been exagerated quite a bit.  Our bodies are about 70 per  cent liquid. Apart from the  blood, there's brain fluid and  endocrinal fluid and so on. If  you want to understand the effect the moon is having on people, watch the ocean tides.  During full moons and new  moons you see the most extreme  tides. At some times of the year  this doesn't amount to much.  At other times the tides go way  out and come in quite high. October/November and May/-  June seem to be the most extreme tides.  Corresponding to those tides  are the full moons in Scorpio  and Taurus, often considered to  be very intense times.  That time of year is once  more upon us. On May 9  around noon the sun is in  Taurus, the moon is Scorpio  and we have the Scorpio full  moon.  The few days preceeding that  are liable to be a little crazy.  Emotions seem to become  stronger during this time, which  gives you an opportunity to  look at stuff that you or those  close to have have been trying to  ignore.  However, don't judge the  severity of the issues by the intensity of this time. This is a  mood, it will pass. The danger is  always that things will be blown  out of proportion and serious  damage done where none was  necessary.  This is not a good time to  fight. It is, however, a great  time for therapy if you can slide  it in, all sorts of interesting  aspects may come out.  The Scorpio full moon has a  bad reputation for violence,  again just a reflection of the in  tensity, so it's probably not a  good time to be wandering the  downtown streets of any  metropolitan centre.  This particular full moon occurs at approximately the same  degree of Scorpio that Pluto is  sitting right now, adding a  greater than usual pressure on  many people.  x*>    Royal Canadian Legion 140  *  ffiX                        SECHELT  ��  W   STEAK SUPPER $6.00  6 pm to 8 pm  Every Friday night in May starling May  4  Dancing starts at 8 pm 'til midnight  Members & Guests Welcome  Channel 119  TUESDAY, MAY 8  7 PM  Talk to Your Local  Government  Maureen Clayton returns this  month to host our program that  allows viewers to talk to  members of their local governments.  8 PM  Mammography at St. Maiy's  Hospital  Join Dianne Evans and her  guests in a discussion on the  new Mammography machine at  St. Mary's Hospital in Sechelt.  8:30 PM  Discussion for Forestry Week  Stan Dixon hosts this open  line program for Forestry Week  taped last Thursday.

"Nothing, dear, why do you ask?"  "You take me to a Greek restaurant overlooking the  ocean, we're served meals with exotic names, did you get a  raise?"  "Don't worry," he said.

They tasted  Italian, nibbled on seafood and steaks and sampled traditional Greek dishes.  Afterwards we walked along the beach. A beautiful end  to a romantic evening.

As of May 3 the following  teams have played.  The Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper team is starting to make  some good plays at home base  and Stuart Chester and Kevin  Skelcher continue to lead in the  hitting department. Chris Rot-  tluff is also hitting the ball well.  This week the Elson Glass  team had one game postponed  due to rain and the other game  postponed due to darkness.  These games will be completed  in the near future.  The PetroCan team had  Ryan Swanson making two  double plays and hit two triples  this week.  Blue Waves' team saw  Amanda continue to catch those  pop flies and an excellent play  from Michal to Quinn to put  out a runner going home.  There was no report from the  coach of the Prontos team.  In Thursday's game the  Omega team came from behind  to defeat Prontos. A good solid  team effort.

Jim  Buntain sdffed his tee shot on  #3 for the K.P., and Bill Jack  did the same on the sixth hole.  The Monday mixed Twilite  was won by Jim Menzies and  Cathy McQuitty, playing alternate shots from best ball for a  snappy low gross 46.  Hard on their heels was the  team of the Prez., George  Longham and the custodian of  our dough, Pat Mitchell... Low  net was won by Sylvia Thirlwell  and Ben Dlin, and second by  Shirley Dumma and Bill  Lawrenuk. Jim Menzies and  Sylvia Thirlwell (there are those  names again), K.P.'d the third  and sixth holes respectively, and  Dutch and Hazel gathered in the  Wooden Trophy.  After braving a chilling rain  last Tuesday, the team of Jim  Menzies and Bill Cameron  strode to the winners' circle  amid cries of "sandbagger",  and demands for an investigation of their handicaps, after  posting a net 66.  George Langham and Willi  Marcowski, who were also  viewed with some suspicion,  were one shot off at 67, while  the old firefighter, Wilf Crowe  and his partner Roy LaFave  came in at 69.

Starting at 1 pm and ending  at 5:30 pm, darts flew through  the air...every point putting  cash in the society's bank account.  "Celebrity Teams" were:  Sgt. Ed Hill and the RCMP  team, local Rotary and Kinsmen  Cubs, and two teams from the  Queens Cross Pub in North  Vancouver.  Cash contributors received  were from: Gibsons Building  Supplies, Fiedler Brothers Con  tracting, Stenners Auto Marine  Electric, Harding and Son Shell  Oil, Langdale Wrecks (BC  Ferry Workers), Omega  Restaurant, Elphie's Cabaret,  Queens Cross Pub - North Vancouver, Gilligans Pub - Sechelt,  Cedars Pub - with special mention to Bob Mahar.  The Enhancement Society  was more than pleased with the  large sum raised and future  events are already in the works.  The 1990 Miss Gibsons  Pageant was officially launched  at brunch on Sunday, April 29.  It was held at the new Cedar's  Inn. The 12 young contestants  and their parents spent a pleasant hour with their sponsors  and the pageant committee.  The official judges were introduced by Chairman Bob  Hyams who urged the young  ladies to enjoy the next few  months and to take advantage  of the opportunities that this  pageant offers each one. The  1989 Royalty spoke confirming  the chairman's remarks and  Crack RCMP Dart Team: (from left) Sgt. Ed Hill and wife Joy,  Constable Dale Qulnton, and "Sam". ���Steve Poole photo  Kite-flying display  by Lee Taylor  The Sunshine Coast is in for a  treat. On Sunday, May 13 at 1  pm at Davis Bay Beach, veteran  stunt kite wizards Ray Bethell  and Rob Reilly will be flying  dual line kites.  Ray has just returned from  Hawkes Bay, New Zealand  where he joined other international kite fliers for a four day  festival which brought out  50,000 people.  Roy and Ray have been flying together for years and will  make you 'ooh' and 'ahhh' at  their ability. Maybe you've seen  them at the Children's Festival  or Vanier Park or Ambleside.  My first experience was at  Vanier Park where I saw them  flying four kites each. Together  they danced around the sky,  eight kites in formation, swerving, climbing, wheeling, making  me envious.  They set their kites down for  a deserved rest and I went over  to say hi and thank them for an  excellent show. The kites are  hand built from rip-stop nylon  and fiberglass rods.  Had 1 ever flown a dual line  Delta? No.  Would you like to try? Oh,  you bet!  Ray quickly launched a single  Delta about five feet wide and  thrust the two handles into my  sweating hands.  He simply said, "keep the  lines even."  The kite lifted like the old  tissue paper box I remembered  from way back when.  I thought "this is easy," and  watched the kite. I've done it.  Alright.  Ray said, "Now let's see  what you can do. Pull on the  right line firmly."  I did and the kite started to  dive to earth.  "Keep holding the right  line."  The kite arched right back up  in a circle and then another and  another. Whoa! I let in on the  right and the kite settled back  into its gentle place like a cloud.  "Now pull on the left line  and untwist the lines. Oops,  once too many, now right one  loop."  Next we tried to run the kite  about a foot off the ground  from right to left and back and  forth. 1 had the kite about six  feet off the ground but this was  the right idea.  And then to land, away to the  left come back to the right, pull  up on the nose and take a step  forward. The kite set down on  its tail - a move called an eagle  landing. Mine looked more like  an Aardvark squat but it was  down and in one piece. And I  was hooked.  Now it's your turn. Come  and see these guys fly!

It is with some sense  of relief thai we witness this  phenomenon, and it is appropriate to remember Rachel  Carson's dire predictions in  Silent Spring.  In that vanguard book of environmental awareness, Carson  ( warned of Ihe day when Ihe  birds would not return, and the  spring would be silent of bird-  song. We have moved forward  from the dark days of the 50's  and 60's when the ravages of  DDT first became apparent, but  population studies of migrant  birds still indicate declining  numbers. One paramount cause  is environmental degradation  and deforestation in the birds'  tropical wintering quarters.  Notable sightings recently  were a flock of 1000 Snow  Geese heading northward to  their breeding grounds on  Wrangell Island in Siberia.  On April 22 the first ever  springtime records of Lapland  Longspurs occurred in our area.  Single males in their showy  breeding plumage were seen at  Mission Point and in Porpoise  Bay.  Arnold Skei, who was recently living in northern Norway, ie.  Lapland, was elated to see this  species again thousands of miles  away from their namesake  homeland. Are birds bred in  Canada's northern tundras?  The first half of May will  bring another dozen species  back to our area, with only a  few late species still to arrive.  Watch and listen for Yellow,  Wilson's and McGillivray's  Warblers, Western Tanagcr (the  only member of Ihis tropical  family in our area) and flycatchers such as Western Wood.  PeeWee and Olive-sided Flycatcher.  This latter bird is well known  for its distinctive calls which  sound amazingly like "Quick,  three beers" and arc most appropriate on a hot afternoon.  Our winter resident ducks will  steadily diminish as they retreat  to their breeding grounds on Interior freshwater lakes.  For information or lo report  interesting sightings call Tony  Greenfield at 885-7869 (days) or  885-5539 (evenings).  Good birding!

Is resolution  and compromise an impossibility in our society today? Have  we forgotten consideration and  deference?  Kids painting T-shirts:  "Don't Let it Croak", "Let it  Croak"; "It's hate literature!"  Threats of suing!...The kids are  really getting into this one! The  parents - another matter!  We have so many "hot"  issues right now! There has to  be a better way to deal with  them!  Whatever "opinions" I may  have had on "world and local  events" is taking a very big back  seat right now. More importantly, 1 need to believe that resolutions are possible. I need to see  the "howness" of resolution,  and believe me, so do the kids.  Once hostility and conflict  become the means to resolve  anything, the initial "goodness"  or "ethics" of the issue is completely destroyed!  "Win/win" would be terrific, but what about compromise, where neither party  gets it all, but a middle ground  is reached, or (dare we even suggest this) giving in; accepting the  loss gracefully and moving on.  A friend mentioned the Law of  Compensating Factors; if I  don't win this time, I'll win the  next. I liked it! Giving in...but  who goes first!  I don't know the answer, but  1 do know we have to begin to  work and play together, and  we're sure not doing it! It's obviously easier to read about  than to practice in real life. And  yet, we know better!  I agree that we need to use all  our strength to "change the  world" and maybe we are the  turning point generation, but  not the way we are presently going about it! What is wrong  with us that issues have become  more important than our  "brothers"! And with that,  where are we going with all of  this? Sometimes it looks as  though the environment will  survive us - doesn't it!  Dana Sheehan  Background to charges  */S  Editor:  I'd like to bring the community up to date from my  perspective on the 19 charges  brought against HSPP and offer some discussion.  The 19 charges against HSPP  stemmed from a five day unexpected visit to the pulp mill by  government officials May 27 to  31, 1989.  The counts originate from  each day the mill "did deposit  deleterious substances, to wit:  pulp mill effluent in water frequented by fish; did introduce  or cause or allow waste to be introduced into the environment;  introduced...effluent in excess  of the 30 per cent permitted toxicity; and for two days introduced waste temperature of 35  degrees Celsius." There is plenty  of will, or intention in the above  general wording.  I observed the sequence  below. HSPP hadn't heard  anything about the outcome of  the government's investigation  of May 1989 until the counts  were laid April 10, 1990.  During the week preceding  April 10 in the BC legislature,  Ihe  government  came  under  prolonged fire from the opposition over failure to enforce pulp  mill regulations, the issue triggered by recent spills at Wood-  fiber and the chlorine dioxide  spill at Port Mellon.  This method of 'smoking gun  from the political backrooms'  way of regulating simply isn't  fair to people, and unresponsive  to the long term solutions required for the dawning of this  new era.  In my view new and dramatic  legislation is required so the cost  of monitoring industrial pollution is not borne by the taxpayer  and an environmental insurance  fund should be established to  pay compensation.  Well designed legislation  could provide an incentive for  industry   to   develop     en  vironmentally sensitive solutions, long before it becomes  this socially tiring, discordant  situation we have today.  As for my work place, a new  Pollution Alert Procedure has  been started, and has the priority and structure of a safety investigation. Over the past year  I've seen dramatic changes in  operational practices for running the old mill cleaner, due to  today's metamorphic social  pressures.  1 wish to see, in the future,  imaginative legislation respond  to this new era, not reliant simply on words, and 'will'.

(Not available to commercial  advertiser*)  1. The proposal does not ask  that all of Mount Richardson be  dedicated to wilderness but only  a small fraction. It covers largely the part of the mountain visible from Sechelt. It has only a  small volume of merchantable  timber. The part of the mountain covered by the proposal is  mainly the same portion of the  mountain that the FAC agrees  should be preserved.  2. The claim of Canadian  Forest Products' Fred Gazely  that the success of the proposal  would involve enormous economic losses is so incorrect that  we suspect it must be based on a  total misreading of the proposal. Virtually all of the productive sites that he refers to fall  outside of the proposed  wilderness area.  3. We are not asking that the  Forest Service 'waive' its  guidelines in order to accept our  proposal. The proposal is completely consistent wilh the  definition of wilderness in the  Forestry's Wilderness Management Policy - which requires  that the area in question be at  least 1000 hectares and retain its  natural character with only  minor, and in the long run, un-  noliceable human impact.  You have only to look at the  mountain from Sechelt (what  you can see is basically what we  are arguing for) to see thai this  requirement is met.  4. Lastly, the paper suggests  that the Forestry Advisory  Committee will not give support  for the proposal, but FAC has  not rejected or made any final  decision on this proposal.  We would certainly nol expect FAC to make such a decision without inviting us lo address our position on the proposal.  Gerry Kirk, President  Tuwanek Ratepayers Assoc.

Fortunately there are a few people who perform rather than  preach. Dave Chance is an example.  In a recent story about fish  habitat enhancement near our  mill, Mr. Chance was quoted as  saying: "...(he) has seen an incredible change in the  company's attitude toward the  environment in those years..."  (since starting work at the mill  in 1962).  I would like to add that the  reputation of a company equals  the sum of the reputations of its  employees. A few of us are able  to authorize expenditures but it  is an employee such as Dave  who dons gumboots and uses  his knowledge and dedication to  ensure that the money is wisely  spent, thus ensuring that more  money will follow.

On August 21 last year,  Marian appeared in provincial  court in Sechelt on charges of  theft that was the result of a log  salvage dispute with Dino  Demarnie. Marian was found  guilty and fined by Judge  Shirley Giroday.  However, Marian appealed  the decision, maintaining that a  27-foot fir log he salvaged from  a West Sechelt beach was not  tied up. The log was valued at  about $160 for the salvager.  Demarnie had claimed that he  had first salvaged the log and  temporarily secured it to  another log that was on the  beach.  As a witness for Demarnie at  the original trial, Audrey Merrill who lives in the salvage area,  testified that she had seen  Demarnie secure the log. "A  day or two" later she also saw  Marian remove the same log.  In the Appeal's Reasons for  Judgment, Judge Hardinge  said: "...on a reading of the  whole of the evidence there is a  significant shortfall in what I  will call its persuasive effect..."  "I am satisfied that the  evidence in this case, with the  greatest respect to the learned  trial judge, was such that it  would be dangerous to convict  the Appellant (Marian) on the.  basis of it."  In the trial, Judge Giroday  made her decision on the basis  of the Merrill testimony. But  when asked in cross examination if the log was still tied up  when Marian took it, Merrill  had said: "To be truthful, I saw  a yellow rope, which is what  was tied and it was over the log.  Whether it was tied or not I  don't know."  Judge Hardinge felt that  Merrill's uncertainty of whether  it was still secured to the beach  log was not given enough weight  by the trial judge.  "It was a possiblity at least or  inference that could have been  drawn that what she (Merrill)  reported seeing, namely the log  tied to the tree, was what she expected to see because of the fact  she had seen the log tied there,"  said Judge Hardinge.  Sechelt  Council  In a report to council on the  Tourism Action Committee,  Alderman Doug Reid outlined a  proposal put forward by the  Economic Development Commission (EDC). Their suggestion was to incorporate all  tourism activities under one coordinating body.  However the Action Committee would prefer to see two  bodies handling things, Reid  said. Their counter-proposal is  to have the EDC handle  research and development,  while Travel Sunshine Coast  would expand their operations  to include visitor information,  marketing and promotion, coordination of events, fundraising and other such functions.  The action plan, he said, "is  extremely significant for  tourism on the Sunshine Coast  and will bring back the $10,000  from Powell River."  The Powell River Chamber  of Commerce has stated their  intention of withdrawing  $10,000 in funding for Travel  Sunshine Coast.  Alderman Joyce Kolibas  questioned whether there could  be duplicate funding requests  from Travel Sunshine Coast  and the Chamber of Commerce  for tourist functions. Reid  acknowedged there might be  some confusion initially.  "I just want to stress that I  think the merchants should do  more for tourism," she stated.  Later in the meeting, Alderman Mike Shanks apologized to  council for any "embarassment  or discomfort" experienced by  aldermen by the press announcement regarding Block 7  development plans which was  released last week.  "Normally committees report  to council before going to the  papers." Kolibas pointed out.  Shanks agreed, but pointed  out that the Block 7 Building  Committee was set up to get  things moving. Council, he  said, had already agreed with  the concept.  He told council the committee hopes to hear from the  British Columbia Building Corporation regarding negotiations  on Phase Two of the plan.  "Although that is not a  necessary inference it is one  which I respectfully think the  learned trial judge ought to  have taken into consideration in  determining how much importance, if any, to attach to Mrs.  Merrill's later evidence in cross  examination that she did not  know whether the log was tied  or not," he continued.  In a transcript of the original  trial, Judge Giroday stated:  "Looking at all the evidence  and I look also at Mr. Marian's  attitude in the stand, I find that  1 am satisfied to the necessary  standard, which is beyond a  reasonable doubt, that the log  in question was tied up to the  cottonwood tree at the time Mr.  Marian removed it."  The Appeal Court Judge also  noted that extra care should  have been given to the defence's  evidence since Marian was not  represented by a lawyer.  "That cast an onus on the  trial judge, which is not normally required to be borne by a trial  judge, to look at the evidence  very closely indeed to ensure  that she did not overlook or fail  to give full or take into account  sufficiently any evidence which  might tend to support the Appellant's proposition that so far  as he was concerned the log was  not tied up when he removed  it."  Hardinge referred to  Marian's testimony to the police  and the evidence given at the  trial on his own behalf.  "The learned trial judge does  not seem to have taken that fact  into consideration at all in her  reasons for judgment," Hardinge said.  In an interview on Friday  with the Coast News, Marian  said he was pleased with the Appeal Court's decision.  "This time I finally feel that I  got a hearing," said Marian. "It  was all a draining emotional experience. 1 had my life intervened with in a major way for  basically going about my  business in a legal way."  Marian added that he had a  lawyer represent him this time  because he realized that winning  an  appeal  can   be  difficult.
