Joel Johnstone photo  Council passes  pavilion use  ���y Stuart Siirnildt  An issue that lias divided  Sechelt Council for over a  month was decided last  Wednesday and, as a result, July  and August may no longer be  the only months the Rockwood  Centre Pavilion is open for public use.  A motion was passed at the  June 5 Sechelt Council meeting,  making decisions on use of the  pavilion, a function of council.  Tlte motion, made by Mayor  Nancy MacLarty, doesn't actually lift the present July/August  restrictions, but gives the municipality more power in allowing  tlte pavilion's use at times other  than those presently stipulated.  "If this gets us (council) out  of litis impasse and puts us in a  more unanimous state then I'm  for it," said Alderman Doug  Reid.  The same motion created  three technical restrictions to be  adhered to any tir < the pavilion  is used: noise lev. control, off-  site parking arrangements, and  an attendant to ensure and enforce the parking control (the  attendant, according to  MacLarty, is to he supplied by  the group responsible for the  pavilion, the Festival of the  Written Arts).  Alderman Michael Shanks  stated he wanted another condition added to the motion, one  that would require groups interested in using the facility to  give council "adequate notice...enough time to consider  the request." He suggested two  months as an adequate period  of time.  "With all due respect,  Alderman Shanks," responded  MacLarty, "I think two months is  a hit long..." She polled council  and determined that "reasonable  notice" should be given when  requesting the use of the pavil  ion, but that it would be up to  municipal staff to Interpret what  'reasonable notice' meant.  The motion passed six to one  with Shanks the only opposing  vote.  MacLarty followed immediately with a motion allowing  the Celebration Days committee  to use the pavilion on June 28  for a "folk duo" concert to "kick  off" Sechelt's Celebration Days  festivities.  MacLarty reasoned that the  event would be "only two days"  before July (one of the two  months when activities scheduled In the pavilion don't require council approval) and  noted that the event would be  subject to the new "operating  guidelines".  The motion passed five to  two with Alderman Shanks and  Peggy Wagner voting against.

Re-zoning muscle  flexed by council  -y Stuart lurmldi  A former Mr. Vancouver  body builder Is angry over  Sechelt Council's rejection of his  bid to have an area of East  Porpoise Day re-zoned, at least  temporarily, lo accommodate  his health club, an enterprise  that already has him appearing  in municipal court for operating  a business without a licence.  Carry Gow appeared at a  public information meeting June  5 in an attempt to persuade  Sechelt Council to re-zone residential property near the intersection of East Porpoise Day  Road and Barnett from Rural  Zone I (RR-1) to Park,  Recreation and Public Assembly  2 zone (PA-2).  On that property (owned by  his father), Gow has already established and operates what he  terms a "non-profit health and  fitness centre".  "I'm not trying to make  money," Gow told the Coast  News, "It's my hobby. 1 have 60  members and they donate $30 a  month, but that doesn't begin to  pay the expense of operating.  It's just a place where people  who want to work out can, It's  part of a healthy way of life."  At the public information  meeting (held just prior to a  Sechelt Council meeting) Gow,  accompanied by approximately  20 of his club's members, tried  to justify the club's existence by  explaining it as a recreation facility of a kind and quality  found lacking on the Coast. He  said his interest was in health  and sport and that he didn't expect to "get rich" with the facility  However, also on hand were  residents who neighbour the  club. The chief concern expressed by them focused on the  dust raised by traffic going to  and from the facility (the club is  located on the din road entrance of a local gravel operation).  Summing up his response to  the citizens' concerns, Gow  said, "I told them I water the  road near the club, but it's a  Continued on page 11.  Duck race  wrap up  v  -JS-t.    .

Rose Nicholson photo.  by Jan Michael Sherman  In a vote last Wednesday  night which may or may not  have any significant impact on  tlte school board's ultimate decision regarding the disposition  of tlte Madeira Park Elementary  School dilemma, a plurality  (li) of the S9 voting opted for  the "K_3" proposal  If ultimately adopted, this  plan would see tlte embattled  old institution remain open to  accommodate grades  Kindergarten through Grade 3,  with (irades 4 to 7 being reassigned to a separate facility associated with, but not part of,  Pender Harbour Secondary.  When "second choice" votes are  factored In, some 36 parents  and oilier residents at the nearly  three-hour meeting gave the nolo the K-3 option.  "I think it's a good compromise to give Clifford Smith  (school Superintendent) what  he feels is best." said Parent  Advisory Committee President  Joan Disney, alluding to Smith's  preference for some form of  "merged" facility at Pender  Harbour Secondary. "Many of us  have been saying 'No' to the K-  12 option for three years,"  Disney noted, adding, "From  Day One people were saying  'No' - bul we were asked to  look Into It"  tight people ultimately voted  in favour of the controversial solution which would see all of  Madeira Park's elementary students relocated and associated  with the existing Kleindale facility.  During the course of the  meeting - the fifth to be held on  the emotionally divisive issue  according to one parent in attendance - some seven options  were discussed at length. The  purpose of the meeting was to  achieve some sort of consensus  to aid the hoard in its deliberations in their search for an economically and educationally viable solution to the elementary  school problem.  Commented Superintendent  Smith to the Coast News prior  to the meeting, "The board  could impose a decision on the  community, but It's not that  kind of board."  Eric Vanderpoll, a young  fisherman/contractor with  "...two kids about to enter elementary school," rose to say, "I'  see no reason for building a  new school (an option considered a non-starter). I'm loot/ tig  around at a structurally sound  building."  Vanderpoll later told the  Coast News, "I want my children to go to school right here,"  a sentiment echoing that of a  majority of other parents and  residents.  Superintendent Smith concurred, noting, "A lot in this  building is not top quality, but  basically it's safe and sound. It  could last indefinitely."  Parent and NDP candidate  Howard While triggered a ripple of negativity when he  brought up the matter of  "population studies" which he  felt should be done "...if we're  going to he able to make an informed decision." The sense of  the crowd was that they'd  hashed this issue around long  enough and had a strong desire  to choose some concrete direction - now.  Cautioned Chairman Dr.  Terry Amiel "We could wind up  with 60 different options upon  which to vote"  Future Facilities Committee  (FFC) Chairman Gwen Struthers  made a long, defense of the controversial K-12 "Kleindale Plan".  She claimed that its "educational  advantages" (including a full-size  gym, proximity to the golf  course and salmon enhancement program, as well as other  augmented opportunities) made  it the best way to go. Struthers'  remarks were greeted with silence.  The Coast News asked  School Board Chairman  Maureen Clayton what would  happen should the consensus  reached at the meeting be rejected by the board.  "I get lynched?", joked  Clayton, adding seriously, "It's a  real possibility. We have to balance the FFC recommendations  with the (realities) of the ministry - but keep focusing on the  situation here at Madeira Pat-  Elementary." She went on to bitterly indict the short-sightedness  of the government.  Claimed Clayton, "We can't  build for the future! The government does not make funding  for building a priority."  Following the vote tabulation  parent Terry Jacks was more  than satisfied with the outcome:  "It's a good compromise. People  didnt want to close the school,  bulldoze it, and then sell off the  land for something or other." Coast News, June 10,1991  FEEDBACK  Sunday, June  16 is Father's  Day. Hie COAST  NEWS spoke  with six fathers  of all i  walks of life  and posed the  following  question:  ���What is the  best thing --  and the worst -  about being a  father?"  ROD NEEDIIAM  2S year old Rod Needham lias been a father fur all of three months and appears to  be loving the experience. He and partner  Ilecky, 20, live in Dawson Creek and have  been on the Coast visiting relatives in  Pender Harbour and Sechelt Their daughter Kaleiglt was with them the day we interviewed Iter proud dad.  Rod knew Immediately what the best  tiling about being a lather was for him:  "Watching the child grow! She fulfills my  life a lot more " He grinned slowly. "Having  a child also slows you down, makes life  more relaxing"  "The worst thing", said Rod, "is getting up  three Utiles a night"  "Two!", corrected llccky.  Mary-Anne West receives her award from John  Luckctt of Environment Canada.  ,     Joel Johnstone photo.  West receives  recognition  During Environment  week Uune 3-9] the Weather  Service of Environment  Canada recognized the work  of volunteer weather observers across the country.  Maryanne West of Gibsons  was selected to receive an  award because of her long  and exceptional service.  Volunteer weather observers record temperature,  precipitation, and other climatic data twice daily, every  day of the year, and provide  this information monthly to  Environment Canada.  The records from over  2,000 weather observers  across Canada form the  backbone of the national  climate data base.  Environment Canada uses  the Information gathered by  the volunteer observers to respond to requests from planners and decision makers in  the fields of agriculture,  transportation, energy, and  construction  This information is used  to support weather sensitive  economic activities such as  fishing, aviation, mining, and  tourism  Environment Canada honours the work of volunteer  weather observers through a  series of awards for dedicated service. The Morley K.  Thomas award was presented to Mary-Anne West for  operating a station in her  home for 30 years.  Morley K Thomas, a retired cllmatologist, is known  internationally for his studies  into the world's climate.  Precipitation measurements began at Mary-Anne  West's home on October  1961 and were upgraded to  include temperature in 1969.  The long term dedication of  volunteers like Mrs West  play an essential and unique  role in Environment  Canada's highly complex and  technological weather service.  Fatalities-ofTCoast roads  There were two traffic fatalities on (.oastal roads die May 31  weekend, and a pedestrian/vehicle accident on June 6.  Coleen Alexis Fielder, .4, of  Madeira Park was killed when  her vehicle collided with another at the intersection of  Lockyer and Hansen Roads In  Roberts Creek.  An 83 year year old man was  killed while riding a bicycle in  Davis Bay. Walter Donald Paul,  29, has been charged with driving while Impaired.  A male pedestrian was struck  by a vehicle on Reed Road last  Thursday evening.  ERROR CORRECTED  Sechelt song from Bella Bella  In the recent news story about the return of the  Sechelt song, we incorrectly stated the song came from  Bella Cool-  In fact David Gladstone, who brought back the song, Is  from Bella Bella.and belongs to the Heiltstuk band, an  individual group with their own language.  ANTHONY PAGAN  When the Coast News approached Anthony Pagan in a  Sechelt mall and inquired as to  whether he was a father, he  grinned widely and replied "As  of H:55 this morning I am!"  The 23 year old Sandy Hook  resident's wife Monique gave  birth to the couple's first child,  son Tristan (7lbs, Hoz) at St.  Mary's Hospital, but despite his  limited time as a dad, Anthony  was happy to answer our basic  question "Oooh... bringing  someone into this world is the  greatest thing about being a father!"  DAVE WILSON  Dave Wilson is the manager  of the Royal Dank in Sechelt,  and the father of two sons,  seven year old Marc and eleven  year old Tyler.  Dave and Glenda, married  for sixteen years, purposely delayed having children for close  to four years because, as Dave  put it, "We felt that having children is a big decision." The best  thing about being a father "is not  a tough question, really", Wilson  said with a smile. "1 like to see  the kids grow and develop -  hopefully along the right lines."  "Seeing them go the wrong  way is the worst aspect of being  a father", Dave suggested.  ALEX ROSS  78 year old Alex Ross is the  father of two grown children.  His daughter Marlene lives in  Calgary and her son Dan Is Alex  and Cora Ross' only grandchild.  Their son, Wayne, lives not too  far from his parents in Roberts  Creek.  "The best thing about being a  father? Well...! don't know.  Unless it's to be pan of a family."  Alex paused, then added softly  "It's also the closeness - the  closeness to my children."  As for the worst aspect of fatherhood, Ross replied "Don't  know that there's any 'worst  thing' really. As long as they're  doing well, I'm happy."  BOB SCHUMACHER  Retired prospector Bob  Schumacher has been a dad for  26 years, his and wife Barbara's  only child being their daughter  Karen.  As .i man long accustomed to  discerning the genuine article,  Bob Schumacher knew precisely what the best thing about  being a father was for him.  "Love" he responded Immediately, adding "It's a nice feeling  especially If it's mutual."  "Nothing I can think oP was  Bob's reply to the "worst aspect"  of being a father.  Our EarthquakeT-Rponse Plan is ready ^  The Sunshine Coast lies with  in an earthquake high risk area,  and if such an event should occur, volunteers from several  emergency services are prepared  to deal with whatever may happen.  Last week about thirty five  people gathered at Pronto's in  Sechelt to discuss existing services on the Coast and make  sure plans are as complete as  possible.  Jim Johnstone, Acting Area  Coordinator for the local,  Provincial Emergency Program  told the Coast News that headquarters for directing rescue activities in any disaster will be at  the Regional District offices in  Sechelt.  If that location is damaged or  unavailable for any reason,  headquarters will be moved to  Chatelech Secondary School.  Plans are under way to acquire a central dispatch system  which will coordinate the activ  ities of existing services such as  volunteer fire departments and  ambulances, and members of  the local ham radio club are  prepared to provide backup  communication services in the  event of power failures.  The emergency preparedness  plan for the Coast, Initiated in  1984, ties together all these services, and connects them to the  regular emergency plans of the  RCMP and St. Mary's Hospital.  This overall plan ts on computer, and Johnson said that a  new, more sophisticated program, SoftRisk, will soon be Installed. The touch screen technology will make it easy for  those unfamiliar with computers to use the system.  At last week's meeting Lynn  Orstad of the Emergency  Services department of the Re-  Cross outlined the system used  for dealing with disasters. She  provided a checklist of supplies  and emergency equipment  which should be part of each  family's preparedness kit, and  guidelines for action when an  earthquake hits.  Plans for emergency shelter  are being coordinated by Judy  Walls, Francis Konopasek and  Fred Church. Questionnaires  have gone have gone out to  schools, churches and other organizations with suitable facilities for handling large groups of  people and this information will  be added to the computer data  base.  Schools on the Coast have an  action plan for emergencies  with all staff responsible for the  welfare of students and a plan  In place to notify parents of the  situation at school.  Elphinstone teacher Ian  Thompson said each school has  been provided with an emergency kit and a manual of  emergency procedures. School  staff are being given special  training, and the schools will be  prepared to look after children  for up to 72 hours after a disas  ter occurs.  "Our policy is," he said, "that  we will not release students until an authorized person signs  for them.  "Our next project is to try  and get funding so we can put  emergency kits in each classroom."  A demonstration earthquake  early warning system was Installed at Chatelech Secondary  nearly a year ago as a pilot protect by the California manufacturer. It gives students a few  seconds warning before an  earthquake actually hits, giving  them time to find safe spots.  "This school district is way  ahead of a lot of districts," said  Thompson. "We've been asked  to send others our manual as a  guide. It's a pat on the back for  Tim Anderson and the others  responsible for providing the  money. You could say we're on  the cutting edge (for eathquake  preparedness)."  PREPARING FOR AN EMERGENCY  HOME EMERGENCY SUPPLIES  This suggested list consists of items usually available in a home and used regularly. It is designed to help  your family identify and organize them for any emergency. Quantities of emergency supplies should be adequate for at least 72 hours. A two weeks supply of water, food, medicine and other consumable items is  recommended as a minimum reserve.

Larger ferry for  Earl's Cove run  MLA Harold Long has announced a new 85 car ferry to  replace the smaller 50 car vessel  presently on the run from Earls  Cove to Saltery Bay.  The vessel will be launched  on June 21, and is part of BC  Ferry Corporation's upgrading  project  Long also said that new,  larger ferries planned for runs  from Vancouver to the Island  should iree up vessels presently  being used on those runs.  "It's my vision that they could  be used for a double ferry system for the Sunshine Coast," he  said. "I'm going to do my best to  convince BC Ferry Corporation  (to do that)," he said.  ��______w  ���_���_______���  ^^^MAaBaMaaMBafeaa|MaaHHaMaMaaa|feaaaaaaM  ^���MMaa Hooked but good, by gum!  Coast News, June 10,1991  Okay, folks, sit back and get  ready to laugh. I mean, why  not? At eight this morning everyone else was. First Denise,  then Peter and Trudy (our  neighbours and my personal  fishing gurus), then Jan, our sojourning friend from LA (who,  thirsting for local colour had it  inadvertently supplied by me),  and finally the crew at St Mary's  Emergency. My own smiles 'n  chuckles were longest In coming, for reasons about to become as clear as Buddah neath  theBodhi.  Just before eight, the thumb  and middle finger of my left  hand had suddenly - and rudely  -become wedded by two barbs  of a # 10 treble hook I'd been  diligently and (I imagined) carefully tying off with a six-foot  length of leader. Doc Hourigan  would later allow as how they  regularly extracted trebles from  some of the most peculiar  anatomical portions of woebegone, mini-mooching wonders  like me, but that I was the first  to sheepishly wander In doing  the old Gumboot Shuffle in a  double-hooked conditlon.I assured him and his phalanx of  snickering assistants that I hadn't  been out to set any records.  Motoring in from Halfmoon,  Elphie  students  win  ICBC  award  FROM THE HIP  J.M. Sherman  Jan at the wheel since Denise  was too convulsed to drive  safely, I amused myself by considering the kinds of physical  operations I'd be unable to perform should the worst eventuate  and my thumb and middle finger remain locked together for  life You must understand,. 1 am  seriously allergic to pain and  removing the hooks was simply  not an option at that moment.  A grey Nissan death wagon  cut dangerously in front of us  (off-Coast plates, natch) and  searing pain shot through my  left hand as my middle finger  (which has a mind of its own)  tried to shoot up in the univer  sal expression of fellowship and  human understanding. The marauder disappeared in a vapour  trail of sick city energy, whilst  the throbbing in my extremities  harshly reminded me to curb  my antisocial sub-strata, righteous provocations notwithstanding  It was while cataloguing activities I'd be hard-pressed to engage in with my treble-hooked  handicap, the most interesting  simply not suitable for airing in  a family newspaper, the fish  scales suddenly fell from my  eyes as a blinding insight was  hooked by my unconscious  which is always trolling for  such treasures.  To appreciate the pain of  others one must experience that  pain for one's self. As we  cruised past Trout Lake I knew  beyond the shadow of a doubt  what it really meant to be  "hooked." I reached over and  down with my good right hand,  took hold of the foot of leader  hanging from the hooks in my  left and tugged tentatively.  By golly it smarted - and then  some! I now experienced my  thumb and middle finger to  have metamorphosed into a 20-  lb salmon and momentarily  toyed with the idea of giving up  fishing But, not having the nature or spiritual training of a  Jain, I reckoned today is not my  day to attain St Francis of Assist  hood  The way I see it, any finned  invertebrate that winds up on  the end of my line is, quite simply, supposed to be there. Just  as these nasty little treble barbs  are supposed to be deeply cm-  bedded in my thumb and middle finger If tilings weren't  meant to be, they wouldn't  happen, and that goes for the  angler and die angled for.  Hie lesson I take from this  apparently "funny" little experience (eliacun a son gout) is twofold Either I buy pre tied hooks  at 89 cents a pop, wear gloves  and tie my own, or stuff the  sinker down the herring and  fish with that, thus bypassing  the need for hooks entirely.  The other thing I learned Is  that laughter absolutely dissolves fear and anxiety and mitigates panic.  Everyone found my  predicament amusing simply  because they recognized that I  was in no great immediate peril.  Their laughter cut through and  enabled me to see myself from  dieir perspective.  Ha. Ha.  Gibsons by-pass to go ahead  Construction on the Gibsons bypass will resume  shortly according to Lyall Hanson, Minister of Highways, who recently announced funding for several projects on the Coast.  Hanson said $3.3 million has been allocated for the first phase of  the $ 10. million bypass from Langdale to Payne Road, and $50,000.  will be spent on improvements to Rat Portage Hill in Roberts Creek  The long awaited re-routing of the Sechelt section of the highway  from Cowrie Street to Teredo Street will be carried out at a cost of  $635,000, and $1.8 million will be spent on continuing work on  the stretch from Secret Cove to Wood Bay.  MLA Harold Long told the Coast News that contracts for the bypass will be awarded in June and construction is expected to get  under way by July. He was not prepared to say when the project  would be completed, "...but the main thing is to get it started," he  said.

In  other words, do something that  would result in the community  being more aware of an issue,"  , The students chose to get involved with the Lower Gibsons  Merchants Association, and  were asked by the merchants to  make a presentation for the  group's revitalization plans.  They took 55 pictures,  which showed Gibsons as a  student, or possibly a tourist,  would see it, - and the merchants found the different perspective quite thought-provoking.  The students also tackled the  Department of Highways on the  subject of the dangerous intersection at the comer of  Highway 101 and North Road  near the Elementary School.  After talking to several groups,  "...there's now talk of a traffic-  light going in there," said  Hethey.  Grade 12 students went out  on road blocks with the RCMP  during their Counter Attack  program, and did a number of  traffic awareness programs in  the schools, and they went before the ferry forum with photographs showing the traffic  problems experienced during  times of heavy ferry traffic.  "When we sent our entries  in to ICBC," said Hethey, they  were obviously impressed because they gave us one of the  ten top rated gold awards."  Two other Elphl students.  Nicole Qually and David Smith.  are finalists in a poster contest  put on by the Liquor Control  Board.  "The winning poster will be  on display in every liquor store  in the province," said Hethey  In   her  third  year  of  participation, Grade 11  student Michelle Newton  is now president of the  Elphinstone Traffic Safety  program.

The high rises which dot the  skyline are dwarfed by the  North Shore mountains and on  their doorstep, between them  and the mountains, lies one of  the world's most magnificent  parks.  In a province where astonishing beauty and short-sighted  rapacious greed are locked in  perennial combat (with beauty  taking a beating) bow was this  verdant |ewel preserved in the  heart of the city? What heroes or  heroines of vision arranged for  its preservation? Why are there  no statues erected to their  memory? Those who made  Stanley Park possible should be  declared ecological saints  forthwith and their descendants  awarded the keys of city.  From a window far above  the mundane streets, the eye  rises from the solid green mass  ol the nearby park, lingers on  the North Shore mountains and  slips across the waters of  English Hay. blue this morning  and still Seven oceangoing  freighters rest quietly at anchor,  the travails of ocean travel for  the moment behind them. A little earlier, a luxury cruise ship,  gleaming golden in the morning  sun, slipped smoothly towards  Lions (iate Bridge and into this  most blessed of harbours  The denizens of the West  End, and there are many, seem  A bounty  of beauty  MUSINGS  John Burnside  for the most part serenely aware  i Of their good fortune. Though  the area is said to he among the  most densely populated on the  face of the earth, there seems little crime and no anxiety on the  streets at any hour of the day or  night.  They shop for the most part  on Denman Street and to a remarkable degree there is the  easy familiarity and recognition  of village life in this most urban  of settings. They take coffee or  tea at tables on the sidewalk,  stroll the sea walk in their thousands, and radiate the smugness  of people who have arrived exactly where ihey want to be.  Nor, by any means, arc the  variegated thousands of human  kind the only residents of the  place. Virtually tame squirrels  hop about everywhere in the  West End streets A late night  stroll will sometimes see a couple of civet cats ambling amiably down an alleyway A family of raccoons strolls with the  tranquil serenity of the area  through a patch of moonlight at  the edge of park At close quarters and in great numbers the  people and the animals co-exist  in a harmony which should be  a blueprint for the world.  And there Is richness of bird  life, too, which is remarkable.  The lagoon in the park teems  with ducks and geese and  swans and half of the West End  seems to carry bread crumbs for  their feeding in tlte other pocket  from the one in which they  carry the peanuts for the squirrels.  Apart from these serene paddlers, tlte aerial acrobats tumble  and glide among the people  towers Crows and seagulls and  the pigeons all pill on, for the  observer, their own brand of  aerial mastery.  lite closest tiling to trauma  that we have met during this  tranquil lingering by the Pacific  before setting oul across the  continent for a look at Canada,  involves a pair of passionate pigeons.

LETTERS  Don't be fooled  Editor  The BC Forest Alliance is the  public relations brainchild of  Iturson-Marsteller, a damage  control public relations firm  famous for cleaning up after  Dhopal and the Tylenol-cyanide  scare The Alliance is the centerpiece of a mega-buck campaign agaiilst those that want to  see proper management of  forests and a fair return from  public lands for the people of  BC,  Michael Adams, president of  Ihe polling company Emironics,  states that bis company has  found Canadians to be  adamantly in favour of environmental regulation:  "Most Canadians believe the  forest is being over harvested,  that they are harvesting ina|i  proprialely through clearcutting,  and that the forests are not being replaced to ensure there will  lie forests in the future."  Canadians are right. In lit  cutting levels in 1990 were in  per cent over industry Standards  Of attainability, Industrial management has left a fifth of the  province's forest lands, 5.6 million ha., NSR - not sufficiently  restocked.  As Canadians learn more  about the importance of forests  in the biosphere and about the  economic rip off of our resource by the presently configured industry, more pressure  for proper management of  public lands will eventually  build to a tsunami for change.  This is the worst fear of status quo forestry and that is why  they hired lliirson-Marsteller and  that is why the Alliance has so  much money to spend on TV  programs  Don't be fooled Find out for  yourself There are a lot of good  books on forestry today Read  back copies of Forest Planning  Canada or ask people you  know who are informed Take  your place as a concerned citizen and work for a healthy forest industry in forests that really  arc forever.  W R Henderson  Political  correctness  changes daily  Editor:  As J M Sherman alludes to,  being "politically correct" is  somewhat a relative term.  (Coast News, June 3, "Storm  Troopers of the mind")  For instance, CSIS finds it  "politically correct" to maintain  files on/ver I(K) peace activists.  After all, these drug-crazed critters could jeopardize Diemaco  or (ieneral Motors contracts on  International weapons sales, by  creating adverse publicity.  Then there .was that heartwarming Canadian Press report  that claimed Mohammed al-  Mashat, (former Iraqi ambassador to the US) and two others  of his ilk. "were cited for high  treason and cooperating with  the US Central Intelligence  Agency as well as British and  Canadian security agencies." So  al Mashat. facing death, becomes "politically correct* quite  possibly because be rolled-over  to the CIA  So what, then, becomes of  "politically correct" Stormiti'  Norman? Does this mean tha>  the US Airforce witli its pin  point accuracy was aided by in  telligence reports? And why was  al-Mashat's defection and subsequent expedited immigration to  Canada, rather than somewhere  in the US? Could this mean that  Free Trade extends Into the intelligence community, and the  US, not wanting Iraqi death  squads on their doorstep, decided lo ship al Mashat off to the  farm team?  I know I speak for hundreds  of Canadians, when I say I'd  rather have my privacy invaded  by ihe devil we know (CSIS)  than the Mother of all Devils,  the CIA, or for that matter the  US legal attache in (mawa  Hail, Hall the Chief  My memory has been erased  I am now "Politically correct".  Robert Gerow  Gender bias  Editor:  By appointing gender bias  committees, both federal and  provincial governments recognize that female bias does exist  in the Canadian courts. It is ap  parent that we have to nol only  provide support for the victims,  but we also must lobby the  people in positions of power;  one way is to participate in a  letter-writing campaign.

E. Cornish, Secretary  Action Against Court Travesty  Value and service  sought  Editor:  The complaints of local merchants about Coast residents  buying in Vancouver echo those  who decry the growing trend of  cross-border shopping. In fact,  the situation in this area could  he considered a microcosm of  the plight facing Canadian business as a whole. Customers  look for both value and service  from retailers, and are increasingly willing to carry their wallets elsewhere, even to another  country, to receive it.  In the same way that price-  gouging is unwise In a competitive market, businesses who  refuse to service their customers  merely send them to competitors.  On average, a dissatisfied  client rarely complains to the  company - they merely tell IS  to 19 potential customers about  it. On the other hand, there is  no more loyal customer than  someone who has had a problem resolved to their satisfaction.  Most people prefer to shop  locally, and are even willing to  pay a hit more for the convenience But in today's market,  local merchants must improve  their level of service If ihey hope  to remain viable.  Sven Hrindley  Sechelt  A tip for eco-  dummies  Editor:  I note in your June 3 issue  that Neil Clayton of Shop Easy is  reporting trouble with people  mixing up tin and aluminum  cans at the Recycling Depot.  I am one of the dummies that  couldn't tell a tin can from an  aluminum one and was afraid  I'd have to dump my cans in the  regular garbage, until the smart  young man working at the depot offered me this suggestion -  use a magnet, it doesn't grip  aluminum!  Perhaps this tip will assist  others.  Adrienne Gayton  No Leacock for  Sherman  Editor:  In Ihe May 27 Coast News,  Mr Sherman refers to a woman  named Bella Poitrine. He neglects to give credit to the  source of this humourous name  - unfortunate, since this was the  best part of his column.  Belle Poitrine (French slang  meaning "beautiful boohs") was  the heroine of Patrick Dennis'  hook, Little Me. Dennis was  best known as the author of  Auntie Mame, although Little  Me went on to become a fairly  successful Broadway musical after it was adapted for the stage  by Neil Simon.  C'mon, Sherman. You can  make up funny names all by  yourself. In fact, if you try hard  enough, maybe you can even  write a funny column.  On the other hand, perhaps  you're trying too hard.

This Is the first record of a  spotted owl on the Sechelt  Peninsula. As a consequence the  Pender Harbour Wildlife Society  is requesting Claude Richmond,  Minister of Forests, to immediately call a halt to logging for all  time in the old growth forests of  tlie Caren Range where Ihere is  presently only a bare minimum  area of forest to support a simple pair of spotted owls.  I am returning to the forest  tonight to try to locate the rest  of the owls.  Paul II. Jones  Choose to stop  polluting Strait  Editor:  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District, in its long term planning for sewage disposal, ought  to give preference to options  which eliminate the dumping of  effluent offshore. SCRD planners have built up land disposal  strategies into two of the four  options recently presented to  open houses for public discussion. It is up to residents |Secret  Cove to Wilson Creek] to make  their views known  Wc need to start looking toward cleaning up our Georgia  Strait foreshore. In some cases  we have raw sewage pumped  straight into the ocean Some of  the options presented by the  SCRD involve sewage outfalls at  Mission Point, Eureka Point,  Welcome Passage. Secret Cove,  near Wood Bay and so on.  One of the options, the "do  nothing" option, results in  Sunshine Coast "ocean shores  unsuitable for shellfish and water contact" and "high probability for disease originating in  roadside ditches and similar areas."  The SCRD and its planning  staff are to lie commended for  presenting a wide range of op  tions lo choose from. All the information is easily available to  any citizen. Now it is up to us  to respond.  Our family favours land disposal and we have written a letter to the SCRD to encourage  this option. While the Immediate and operating costs may be  higher per user, we believe the  savings to the marine environment will be well worth the extra effort.  Please write lo the SCRD to  indicate your support for the  land disposal of sewage effluent.

Enthusiasm and energy essential!  Larry Westlake  Was it all for  Mutton?  Editor:  Practicing proper forest  management can be a difficult  task even in the best of times.  When the idea of using sheep  for browsing vegetation in forest  plantations was tabled, a lot of  leg work was Initiated by forest  llcencees here on the Sunshine  Coast to ascertain how effective  this process could he.  After months of consultation  and discussion, a regional  biologist with the Ministry of  Environment was unconvinced  that disease transmission to  wildlife populations and  predator attraction of wild  animals to the sheep population  bad been addressed  The situation became  political and went to Victoria  where it was promptly tabled  and the program quickly went  on hold. The government has  gone on record as stating that  the program will go ahead  when a report outlining the use  of sheep on crownlatid has  been determined. The tentative  date for release of this report is  December 31, 1991.  I truly hope that for all of the  work that licencees have done  for this program, it is not losl in  a sea of bureaucratic red tape or"  becomes ballast in some civil  servant file basket. The  government should not have to  rely on the work of a forest  llcencec to do all the  groundwork for a silviculture  program just to have a "rival"  ministry nix it. I hope that once  the December 31 deadline  comes around and the  government Is faced with  making a decision regarding  sound forest management  practice, lhat all the past work  was not for nothing.

Mail at a  snail's pace  People who live on the  Sunshine Coast generally  adapt to a slower paced  lifestyle. If you miss the  ferry you're here for another night, mail your letter  after 3 pm and it won't leave  the Coast 'till the next day,  or two.  But when Dairy Burke, of  Gibsons, sorted through his  mail on June 7, 1991, he had  to come to the conclusion  that there's such a thing as  too laid-back.  Burke received a bill from  a store in .Sechelt, mailed  Dec. 21, 1989. He conceded  that the box number on the  address had a one digit error, but suggested eighteen  months to figure out the  routing was a bit extreme.  Crime Stoppers  Sechelt RCMP req .est public assistance with regards  to a safe located at the Sechelt landfill site. The safe is a  "Sargent A (ireeiileaf' fire safe, beige iu colour, approximately two feet square, the interior consisting of two  shelves.  The safe was locked when found, the lower shelf had  been forcibly accessed through the back. The upper shelf  was found to contain nothing. There is a sticker from  "Fletcher's Lock A Safe" on the door, and no other markings to indicate ownership.  As there have been no thefts of safes on the Sunshine  Coast recently, RCMP are interested in learning If the  safe was dumped by its owner or if it is connected to a  theft from the Lower Mainland.

As future principal of the expanding  school, he says plans are in the making for an upgraded playing field at the school. Joel Johnstone photo.  A marriage exists between all  conifers and fungi, a symbiotic  relationship without which neither could survive. A healthy  Douglas-fir has 30 to -iO species  of fungi attached to its root system at all times These fungi  form a protective mat around  the root lips of the tree increasing the survival rate and efficiency of the root tips, stimulating their growth, and conserving the energy of the tree.  The tree feeds the fungus  sugar as a product of photosynthesis, producing it in its needles and sending It out the rool  tips to enhance the fungal  growth The fungus extends into  the soil collecting water, phosphorus and nitrogen and moving it inlo tlte trees' root tips.  Twenty-one per cent of these  beneficial fungi live in decaying  wood.

It  was in Sunnycrest Mall on  Thursday, June 6 and Saturday  June 8 from III am until 4 pm.  From records kept by our  historian, Helen Raby, we  learned that OAPO #38 was  formed in Gibsons in 1958 by a  small group seeking to better  their position financially and  socially.  At that time the pension for  those over 70 was $55 per  month. The local branch had  the largest membership in the  province, 59 members.  lly 1975 the building of  Harmony Hall became a reality.  Land was leased from the Town  of Gibsons, a pre-fab building  purchased with the aid of government grants, both federal  and provincial.  A group of seniors, all over  70 years of age, proceeded to  put in 4584 hours of work. On  September 22, 1976 the hall  was officially opened, and has  been a beehive of activity ever  since.  Membership is approximately 250. Through the hard  work and dedication of many  members we have been able to  make many contributions to local charities, and have furnished  a room in St. Mary's Hospital.  New members are always  welcome. Looking back over  the years, we received help  from the Kinsmen. Ihe Kiwanis,  the Canadian Legion and the  Lion's Club. The Coast News  has provided publicity, and all  this help is much appreciated.  George Witlinall is currently  president, and he and the executive members are willing in lis  ten to any suggestions for improving our organization.  Come join the fun at  Harmony Hall.

The questionnaires, sent out by the Sechelt Chamber uf  Commerce, requested input from the business community on  tile acceptability of charging additional amounts on business licenses in order to finance a private security patrol of the Sechelt  business district.  Reid said the chamber would be encouraging unresponsive  businesses to communicate.  Helicopters hovering  The Vancouver Helicopter Company is prepared to set up  business at the Sechelt Airport as soon as details are worked out  witli Sechelt Council, according to Alderman Art Whistler.  At the June 5 council meeting, Whistler urged council to discuss the matter that night as the helicopter company had already  received a favourable response from Gibsons, co-owners of the  airport  Because of delays in the meeting, however, discussion on the  subject had to be postponed until a June special council meeting.

SCRD  considers  backcountry  recreation  A public discussion paper  recently released by the Ministry  of Crown Lands on commercial  backcountry recreation on  crown land came In for  considerable discussion at last,  week's Regional District  Planning Committee meeting.  The paper notes increased  public interest in the  recreational potential of  wilderness areas and a growing  trend for commercial  development of a recreation  industry to take advantage of  this.  This developing industry Is  beginning to have a significant  economic impact in the  province, and the Ministry, with  the idea of heading off possible  conflict among land users, has  outlined the issues involved and  is asking for public input.  The government paper  proposes a comprehensive set of  new policies focusing on the  land component of commercial  backcountry recreation, ranging  from protecting public access  and aboriginal interests to the  allocation and management of  Crown land tenures for  commercial use.  .Shawn Reid of the Regional  District Planning Department  has prepared a response to the  paper which outlines local  concerns.  He suggests the important  issues to be considered by local  governments are sustainable  social and economic benefits;  Impact on local services;  potential tax revenue;  understanding of ecological  limits; and contribution to the  diversification of the  community.  To better address these  issues, he proposes a local  review board made up of  representatives from provincial  government agencies, local  government, native and public  Interest groups.  Director Jim Gurney,  commenting on the lack of  planning for public land, moved  the Planning Committee  recommend the adoption of  Reid's report, and that it be  submitted to the Ministry of  Lands.He added a  recommendation for a  comprehensive land use study.  Deadline for public  submissions to the discussion  paper is June 30. A report  summarizing the comments will  be made public and a later  conference will provide an  opportunity for public, Industry  and government organizations  to discuss policy options.

Stuart Burnside photo  The following story was  submitted to the Coast News by  Conservation officer for the  Ministry of the Environment,  Doug Pierce. Il is a list of the  facts surrounding an elk that  was mistakenly killed near  Pender Harbour in November  of 1990. The animal killed was  part of a herd of 23 Roosevelt  Elk transplanted to the Pender  Harbour area over a period of  three years, 1987, '88, and '89.  Mr Pierce's desire to publish  the story is two-fold. First, he  would like the facts of the matter lo be straight for the public  record, and, secondly, he hopes  the story will serve as an example lo hunters, young and old  alike, regarding the responsibility that Is incumbent upon them  whenever Ihey pick up a gun.  On November 24, 1990,  Todd Riley of Coquitlam went  bunting deer near Pender  Harbour and shot a 7(10 pound  bull elk thinking it was a large  deer Upon realizing the animal  lie shot was, in fact, not a deer,  he reported the incident to the  Conservation Office in Sechelt.  lie was charged by the conservation officer and appeared  in court on February 28.  In conn Riley argued that he  did not know there were elk In  the area. He claimed he could  only sec the upper portion of  the animal and assumed it was a  deer He also noted for the  court's benefit that he had  turned himself in to the conservation office as soon as he realized lie had killed the wrong  animal  Crown council Tony Rowley  and conservation officer Doug  Pierce argued lhal Riley should  have held his lire until lie- had a  clear view of whal he was  shooting . saylng.The hunter  must be able lo absolutely identity his target before pulling the  nigger It is not acceptable lo  shoot at an animal, a noise, or a  movement in the hush then  walk over to see what has, in  fact, been shot,  "If the hunter cannot see the  target he must improve his position until it can be clearly  seen. Failure to identify a target  is the major reason people get  shot. If a hunter can't tell a deer  from an elk, a moose from a  horse, or a person from an animal, he or she shouldn't be  hunting"  The judge in the case felt that  Riley did the right thing by turning himself in, but noted that  more care should have been  taken to identify the species of  animal being shot.  Riley was fined $250 and his  right to hunt was suspended for  one year. The elk was confiscated and the meat was given to  a needy family.

Attending from the  Sunshine Coast were Martha  Scales, executive director of the  Sunshine Coast Home Support  Society, which sponsors this  area's Hospice Program; Hob  Scales, consultant and trainer;  Pearl Siddall, hospice volunteer  visitor; Michael Siddall, interested participant.  Scales is also a board member of ihe provincial association.  The keynote speaker and  workshop leader was Dr. David  Freeman, UHC School of Social  Work and a powerful advocate  of working with the family as a  "positive unit for change." He  emphasized the importance of  being a good listener.  "The most precious gift of the  listener is to allow each individual to express their grief,  loss, or fear without the interruptions that usually happen in  a family situation.  " The power of the healer is  in knowing what questions to  ask, questions that the individual is afraid to ask himself.  Shaking people out of their habitual way of thinking is the key  to cure."  Another way of shifting perspective is humour. Carol Ann  Fried, therapist and counsellor.  easing difficult transitions and  even its survival value in overcoming pain and illness.  Other workshops dealt wilh  such topics as rites and rituals in  moments of transition, music  therapy, pain management and  dealing wilh AIDS issues in  small communities.  At the annual general meeting, position statements on euthanasia and living wills were  presented. On euthanasia, the  board took the position that the  role of hospice and palliative  care is to enhance tile quality of  life at the end, not to end it.  Living wills, In which individuals make their wishes  known in advance Willi respect  to future medical treatment to  which they may be subjected  without their knowledge, are  seen to have value, but because  of Iheir potential for abuse were  not recommended to have legal  force in Canada.  A notable trend was the  greater ease and opencss with  which people discuss and treat  issues of death and life-threatening illness. Also evident was an  increase in the number of male  volunteers and young people  amongst the delegates.  Clearly, the fate that all of us  ultimately face is 'coming out of  the closet' concerning death and  dying, with results that can only  be positive for all concerned.  FINANCE vs  FASHION?

An innovative proposal to  generate electricity at the Selma  Park water pumping station In  Sechelt has won approval of a  $}0,000 incentive from BC  Hydro's Power Smart Bonus  Partners program  The project, which will see  the installation of a water turbine power generator to replace  the existing pressure reducing  valve on the water intake,  should realize annual savings of  nearly $20,000 on the Regional  District's electricity bill.  This is exactly the type of  energy saving project that our  Bonus Fanner's program was  designed for," says Hydro's district manager Wayne Turner.

This year,  the whole school is studying the  Howe Sound drainage basin,  and they saw their subject matter first hand as they spent a day  on the water on a 120 foot vessel, "Kona Winds'.  Principal Anne Skelcher told  the Coast News that the school  subjects are all being integrated  into the study of the drainage  basin.  Coordinated by Tim Turner,  and sponsored by Environment  Canada, Fisheries and Oceans  and the Geological Survey of  Canada, the project involves 12  schools and is a prelude to a  multi-disciplinary scientific  workshop which will he held  on Bowen Island this fall.  The luxury yacht, with its  crew of four and about 90 stu  dent and 10 adult passengers,  left Hopkins Landing, then  cruised up the Sound past  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper's  remodelled mill, then on to  NcNab Creek where they were  hosted to a lunch of hot dogs,  ice cream and cake in the cook  house at the Mainland Logging  Division of Canadian Forest  Products.  Logging engineer Gordon  Skertchly explained a logging  operation lo the students, and  they had the opportunity to get  a close look at a logging truck  and see it dump its load into lite  'bull pen'. They watched as  boom men in dozer boats  sorted the logs into separate  species, and learned the different purposes of each type.

In the case of the Regional  District, the incentive, combined with the electrical savings, means that the project will  be paid for within two years.  "We may even find ourselves  purchasing power from the regional district when the pumping station's requirements are  low," concluded Turner.  The Power Smart incentive  will take the form of an interest  free, forgivable loan which will  l>t completely forgiven after the  genrrator has been in service for  three years. Regional District officials now expect die project to  begin in 1992.  Annual savings are estimated  at 225,000 kilowatt hours,  equivalent to the electrical  needs of 23 new Sechelt homes.  one had recently reported seeing smoke coming from the  supposedly dormant Mount  Garibaldi volcano.

"It's like they had it worked  out even before the  (information) meeting," Gow  said the next day, after learning  of council's decision. "It was a  farce."

Pender Harbour and District  Wildlife Society is Issuing a call  to interested groups and individuals to band together and  protect surviving old-growth  forest of Sechelt Peninsula from  being logged, beginning this  summer.  The wildlife society has announced a meeting June 11, to  form an alliance possibly called  "Friends of Caren" after the  Caren Range above Pender  Harbour, where the remnants of  forest stand.  Anyone Is invited who supports the Idea of establishing a  protected area to preserve the  forest, either permanently or until its non-timber values are better recognized and the public  has a say in the decision.  "It's not only wildlife that  will suffer if Terminal Forest  Products is allowed to act on its  cutting permit," says President  Willie Rousseau of the Pender  Wildlife group. "For starters,  there are salmon fishermen,  both commercial and sport, because a lot of stream habitat is  Involved. Half the young fish in  our own volunteer hatchery -  150,000 of them - were wiped  out last winter by silting, and  this summer's clearcutting is going to be above the very same  stream."  "Then there are those who  depend on the local watersheds  for drinking. And those who see  the Caren Range, with its lakes,  plateaus and magnificent views,  as ideal for recreation,"  Rousseau adds. His group has  already submitted a park proposal covering the old growth  forest. "In fact, everyone is affected. That's why we're broadening tills tiling out."  The meeting, which the  Wildlife Society hopes will attract both private citizens and  observers from other associations, is at 730 pm, June 1 at  Lions Park, right off Highway  101, 1/2 km past Pender  Harbour Secondary School.  i! ^  Colour Sale  Monitor      $1495  litizen 200 GX Printer  Free Colour Kit  [$100 Value]  $285  atlas���  OFFICE SOLUTIONS LTD.  5511 Wharf St., Sechelt  Phone 885-4469 Fax 885-4686  In touch with  the Sunshine Coast  Mountain fm Radio  107.5        presents        104.7  <3Tfcc fiumme/i uUusic Camp  AT CHATELECH HIGH SCHOOL |AUQ 6-17)  REGISTRATION FORM  (Dtxllliw-un> 30,19H)  Name:   Address:   Phone #:   Age:   Instrument:   What School do you attend?:   How long have you been playing?:...  -Registration Fee is $10  -Registration is limited to 30 students  -Classes are held Mon. to Fri. in the Band  Room at Chatelech High School  commencing Tuesday, Aug. 6  -For further information contact Chatelech  High School at 885-3216  ���Mail Registration Form to Chatelech High  School, Box 1430, Sechelt.  -Make cheques payable to Mtn.

The British-born  singer/songwriter will appear In concert Saturday night at the  Gibsons curling rink with country singer Patricia Conroy. A fundraiser on behalf of the Sea Cavalcade, the concert is being sponsored  by the Sea Cavalcade, Coast News and Mountain FM.  "I spent the last year doing Hyde intends to present the.  folk festivals. I had gotten tired      Gibsons crowd with a mixed  of the rock thing and I went totally acoustic", Hyde said during  an interview with the Coast  News last Friday. "1 played the  Yellowknife and Calgary folk  festivals and it proved to be very  refreshing for me. It also helped  the songwriting alot." Hyde explained that the words are generally listened to more in folk-  oriented, acoustic material and  this reality resulted in his paying  even more attention to lyrics  than he previously had.  "I've been working back into  a rock bag now and I've proven  to myself that I could do it  acoustically", Hyde said, adding  "I'll be bringing a five-piece band  to Gibsons." The personnel include Hyde on rhythm guitar  and vocals, two back-up guitarists (one of whom doubles  on mandolin), a bass player and  drummer. "I've had these guys  together for about a year - except for a*Jex "A-Train" Boynton  who's been with me for eight  years."  bag, including a few "old  favourites" ("Eyes of a Stranger",  "America Is Sexy", "Dirty  Water"), songs from "Turtle  Island", with about half the selections being newly-minted  Hyde originals.  Although most of the songs  on the new album will be written by Paul, some will be the  result of a collaboration between him and his wife of ten  years, Myriam Nelson. Asked If  he'd come up with a working title for the album, Hyde laughed.  "1 don't come with that until the  last moment - |ust as the ink is  beginning to dry on the album  cover art!"  tile question of people's perception of Hyde as a "socially  conscious" songwriter evoked a  thoughtful response. "I think any  artist worth Ills salt - unless be  or she is halfasleep - have to  write songs that reflect on society. More often than not I've  Implied 'messages' - but I've implied them heavily.

In 1989 Patricia's hit single  "A Thousand Trails" drew the  singer/songwriter to the attention of Warner Records, for  whom she now records. Her  debut album, "Blue a\ngel", was  released last summer and she is  currently in the early stages of  preparing to go back into tlte  studio to cut her second. Last  triday, Ms. Conroy spoke to the  Coast News from Nashville  where she is hard at work writing and gathering material for  her album.  "I came here specifically to  co-write with a number of different songwriters. - one a day  as a matter of fact", she enthused, adding "It would be  wonderful to come out with a  bunch of great songs! That's always the goal. Never settle for  just 'good' songs." She laughs at  this statement, amends it  slightly: "I might have done that  on my first album come to think  of it!"  Her open, effervescent nature  over the phone suggests someone in her late teens and when  Conroy is apprised of this, she  cracks up, says thanks, and allows as how she's in her early  thirties." I am a kid", she says,  adding in a more serious tone  "But, you know, this is a much  tougher business than many  people think. You have to work  really hard - it has to be your  life - just to have a chance."  Conroy mused about how  difficult and fntstrating it can he  for a singer to put together the  right hacking band. "I've got a  super band, hut it took me six  years to put it in place. They are  self-sufficient - they work without me when I'm not touring.  Which is wonderful for all of  us. They call themselves the  Cactus Club when they're gigging on their own."  While in Nashville last March  to showcase at the Bluebird  Cafe ("a famous showcase location"), Conroy met singer Susan  Jacks and the two hit it off. "It  looks like Susan and I might be  writing some songs together",  said Conroy, "She's a terrific  person - very warm -and very  talented."  "Blue Angel", the title song  and third single recently released from her album, is selling  very nicely and it would be fair  to assume that it will be among  the selections essayed by this  tradition-minded country  singer/songwriter come  Saturday night.

Sunshine  folk one  of a kind  Ironically in life, mast terrific  ideas rarely progress beyond  those euphoric moments of  conceptualization.  Happily, however, the notion to produce an album of  homegrown folk songs  recorded by the artists who  wrote them did not get lost in  the creative shuffle of cards  dealt but never played. Now  thanks to a combination of  tenacious vision, talent, and cooperation (plus a miniscule  budget to Inspire ingenuity and  demand sacrifice), the folk at  Gibsons' In Your Ear Records  have literally engineered a first  of a kind.  Entitled "Sunshine Folk", it is  a ten-track cassette, a representative sampler of Coast folk music  talent contained within a professionally-designed package  now for sale at various retail  outlets along the Coast,  "Sunshine Folk" was recently  launched at a party held at the  Inner Ear Studios where the  album was recorded. More than  a hundred folkies of all ages  were on hand for the singular  occasion.  The album was produced by  Michael Lacoste and the artists  involved. "I'm 99% sure this is  the first recording venture of Its  kind on the Sunshine Coast",  Lacoste said a few days following the party. "Especially the  compilation aspect -the fact that  It features a cross-section of  strictly Coast talent on a single  album."  The cassette design by Betty  luksetter (who also created the  "Sunshine Folk" lee shirts) is  clever and arresting conceptually, integrating as it does a yellow and black yin-yang symbol  whose interior dividing line  suggests the contour of a mountain upon which stand several  small trees grouped together.  Three highly stylized yellow  mandolin abstracts play nicely  against the main logo, while  curved keyboards, musical stalls  and notes provide a thematic  counterpoint.  Joining together on this  compilation are John Marian,  China Gomez, Michael Lacoste,  Denise Ulsson, Azulejos, Wesley  Furumoto, Mick Bryant, Dawn  Loverock, Tom Heaton, and  Watersyde, with bassist Randall  Stnylie providing backing on  several cuts.  During a break in the virtually nonstop music at the  "Sunshine Folk" festivities, a local folk-blues type was overheard joking to Betty Inksetter  that In Your Ear".. oughtta consider some kind of follow-up (to  this album)."  Replied Ms. Inksetter, "It's  definitely something we're  thinking about. We're hoping to  produce a live 'Coffeehouse' album before the end of the year."  Aquaintanceship  vs. relationship  Whether you are in the  state of relationship with  another person is not determined by the personal qualities of the other person. It is  not determined by how  much time you spend with  him or her, your ability to  initiate lively, social banter,  your quick wit or your  pleasing public personality.  Whether you are in the state  of relationship or not is determined by your willingness to relate, to be vulnerable, to be fully known by  another.  In other words, being in  relationship with another  requires that you be authentic. It means sharing  thoughts that you're proud  of, and thoughts that you're  ashamed of. It means communicating feelings that yon  like, and that you hate. In  short, it means being who  you are instead of "who you  ain't".

The Work of Love  Joel Brass  Because of the risk being  in a relationship implies,  many of us drift into a state  Of no-relationship wilh the  people around us. A man  and woman can be married  for 2(1 years They may not  however be in a relationship. In fact, they may have  stopped relating 18 years  ago. If the joy, the excitement and the 100 per cent  mutual support have disappeared from the marriage,  it's a sure sign that so has (lie  relationship. Heing married  is easy. All that it requires is  a co-signed legal document.  Heing in a continuous state  of relationship with the person you married requires  much more.  If yon are not in a state of  relationship with the man or  woman in your life, you will  find yourself in one of several categories, possibly 'acquaintanceship'.  You and I have many acquaintances in our lives. We  enjoy acquaintances and  they give us a much needed  sense of belonging to a  larger community. But the  hallmark of an acquaintanceship, and what distinguishes it from a relationship, is that in the former  neither party is willing to be  known. When one person  asks, "How are you?" in an  acquaintanceship, the expected answer is always the  same: "Fine. How are you?"  "Fine thanks" completes the  conversation.  Neither person is willing  lo open up to the other and  tell the truth. There is no  problem with this. Neither  party may want anything  more and often it is just not  appropriate lo say anything  more. Il's just that for too  many of us acquaintanceship  is all that there is.  We can he married for 20  years and be in an acquaintanceship. If so, it means the  couple involved has about as  much intimacy and openness with each other as the  people in the above conversation.  Let's listen in on a husband and wife who are in  acquaintanceship with each:  He: "Hi dear! I'm home"  She: "Oh good, How was  your day?"  He: "Not bad. The boss was  a bit temperamental, though.  How was yours?"  She:  "All right. The kids  acted up some."  Silence.  He: "Good meal, dear. Greal  hamburgers!"  She: "Thanks. What are you  doing tonight?"  He:  "I  think  I'll go play  hockey. How about you?"  She: "Well, if you're playing  hockey, I guess I'll watch  some TV. What time will  you be home?"  He: "11 pm, maybe 11:30  pm. But don't wait up lor  me."

TOR RESERVATIONS PLEASE CALL 885-7p38  Dining  Guide  Your guide to the finest In  A listing of restaurants and pubs  THE COAST CLUB CAFE  When my mother visited recently, I decided to take her to lunch lor a belated Mother's Day treat As I have a 17 monlh old son, il had lo be somewhere we would all be welcome. I decided upon the Coast Club Cale. Located on Wharl Street in Sechelt, the Coasl Club Cale is warm and inviting, with a definite lamily atmosphere. We were seated in the bnght nonsmoking section, at a window table, (highchair and all).  The menu at the Coast Club Cale oilers salads, soups, sandwiches, burgers, and some specialty dishes. My mother (who is on a perpetual diet) opted for the soup of the day (hearty  hamburger) and a Caesar salad. I however, being pregnant and having a huge appetite, ordered the Club House sandwich (served wilh choice ol green salad, fries or pasta salad -I chose  the fries). I  Mom's soup was indeed hearty, with peel, npodles. mushrooms and lots ol other vegetables, in a tomalo base. She enpyed il immensely, commenting on the 'perfect spicing". The generous portion of Caesar salad was served wflh a slice ol homemade wholewheat bread. She complimented the salad, and proceeded lo enjoy it with greal relish - as was evident Oy her silence during lunch.  The clubhouse sandwich, made on the Coast Club Cafel homemade whole wheal Oread, was more lhan generous enough lor my so., and mysel to share. The homemade tries were a  nice change Irom the usual frozen variety lound in most restaurants. I enpyed the sandwich so much, I decided lo order one to lake out lor my husband, who we'd left at home lo mow the  lawn!.  The huge portions left us completely satisfied, and unfortunately we were unable to sample one of Ihe large, temping-looking bran muffins on display. I was surprised to learn that  the total lor our meal (including coffee, a large milk, and Ihe take-out sandwich) was only $21.08. We left, after a pleasant, relaxing lunch, looking forward lo the Mom's next visit, so thai  we might treat ourselves once again at the Coast Club Cale.

The delegates, representing  the views of 40,000 hunters,  anglers and conservationists  province-wide, felt the 1988  change in government policy  which allowed the sale of  Crown foreshore lands as op  posed lo the lease-only system  previously in place, will result  in privale ownership "of the  worst kind".  "The policy of selling off our  valuable Crown foreshore land  areas results In privatization of  the worst kind and could...lead  to private ownership...of our  best recreational foreshore lands  as exists in much of Europe,"  according to the Kamloops and  District Fish and Game  Association, whose members  brought the resolution to the  convention.  Delegates decided that  Crown loreshore lands "should  be retained as common property resources through the practice of lease tenure only, for the  long-term public good."  Tlie government will be petitioned to bring back the pre-  1988 policies so the "selling off  of these priceless public common property resources" ceases.

Joel Johnstone photo  Protecting a deficit  The Minister of Education, Stan Hagen, has denied a  request from District 46 to run a $139,000 deficit for the  remainder of this fiscal year. Secretary Treasurer Tim  Anderson says there is no way the district can avoid running that deficit.  No one on the School Board seems to know where this  confrontation will lead, but Chairman Maureen Clayton  will write another letter to Hagen requesting an interview to discuss the situation. Her last request was declined.  Investing in your  children's future  Jim Gray of Sechelt Is the  Canadian Scholarship Trust  Foundations' enrollment representative for the region stretching from Port Mellon to Pender  Harbour. The Foundation facilitates post-secondary education  by enrolling children in the CST  Plan and providing students  with scholarships.  Attaining a university education is becoming more necessary, and expensive. Post-secondary schooling is an application requirement for a great  number of the workforce's best  positions today and yet the price  lag of that degree is steering students in less costly directions.  That's why an increasing number of parents who want to ensure their child continues his or  her education at a college or  university begin saving early.  One investment option is the  Canadian Scholarship Trust  Plan, the largest and oldest registered education savings plan in  the world.  in the 30 year history of the  non-profit foundation. 1990  was its most successful year. It  enrolled ils greatest number of  children ever, (22,066) paid out  the highest average scholarships  in the registered education savings plan (RESP) industry and  added over $60 million to its  investment portfolio, bringing  the total to over $400 million. It  paid out over $9 million in  scholarships to more than 4000  students last year and awarded  $30,000 In graduate scholarships.  The plan is really designed  for the general population, offering them a reasonable and  secure savings opportunity. The  plan is affordable to low-income, middle-income or even  high-income families. The minimum investment of $9.75 per  month can easily be set aside by  depositing a portion of. or all of  tlte family allowance cheque.  Founded in I960, the sole  purpose of the plan is to assist  parents in planning for their  child's post-secondary education. To reap its benefits, the  only eligibility requirement is  that the child attend some post-  secondary institution. The maximum investment is $ 1500 per  year per child. The limit was set  to discourage investors from using this plan as a tax shelter.  It's a no-risk plan, and scholarships are guaranteed. "It's an  idea that makes so much sense.  and is so basically simple!" enthused Jim Gray. For further information about the foundation.  contact Gray by telephoning  885-3147.  J{rutrtttl.rr ZUliru  5 YEARS AGO  Don Lockstead, MLA of  Mackenzie, denied the NDP  had taken action against the  rush to establish fish farms  on the Sunshine Coast. He  said he was Interested In  getting Ihe government to  bring in comprehensive zone  management procedures lor  . :iastal waters, but nol because the New Democrats  were opposed lo fish (arming.

The  landlord who places the adver  tisement and Ihe newspaper  which publishes it would both be  in contravention ot the legislation  and could have a complaint filed  against them.

BPWC  meets in  Prince  George  The Business and  Professional Women's clubs of  British Columbia and the Yukon  held their 43rd annual provincial conference in Prince  George on May 24, 25 and 26.  Four representatives from the  Sunshine Coast BPWC were in  attendance: Ruth Moore, VP;  Joan Wall, Secretary; and Diane  MacKenzle and Helen Phillips.  A total of 80 businesswomen  responded to the theme of the  conference "our voice Is our  power".  Speaker Lois Boone [NDP  MLA from Prince George] enlarged on the theme by quoting  statistics on the disparity of representation by women In government in BC and Canada.  A workshop on public  speaking by Dawn Miller reinforced the theme that women  must make their voices heard,  not only in business but In  community, provincial and national policies.  Patricia Graham editor at  The Province , spoke of networking and the power of  women supporting other  women in the work force, continuing education and training.  Bursary applications are now  being considered by the  Sunshine Coast (Sechelt Club]  BPWC. These bursaries are for  women entering training or  continuing their education.  Please send applications to Box  887, Sechelt.  The final meeting of the year  of the Sunshine Coast and  Gibsons BPWC Is being held  June II, at the Sunshine Coast  Golf and Country Club. For  more information contact  Myma Harrison at 885-2441.  Beavers at Byng  Camp Byng was a very busy place the weekend of May  31 - June 2 beginning Friday night when 43 local  Beavers and their parents stayed over, engaging In  various activities on Saturday. About 70 Cubs and  Leaders, plus some out of town Beavers replaced them  Saturday night, staying through Sunday.

At council meeting, three applications were given the nod: the Cedar's Slo-pitch tournament,  the Bayside Fastball tournament, and Stenner's Marine Electric  Slo-Pitch tournament. Council may approve six licence days per  year, and a total of five have been approved to date  HERITAGE SOCIETY  Aji attempt by Gwen Robertson, secretary of the Gibsons  Heritage Society, to have council appoint an adivsory committee  to the society failed, last week. Aldermen indicated they wanted  die society to establish any such group themselves.  When Robertson's responses to questioned indicated some  discord within the society, Mayor Small stated, "I don't want to  see council caught in the middle of an internal squabble."  Recycling market  drying up  RCMP contracts extended  Federal Solicitor General Doug Lewis last week announced a one-  year extension of the 1990/91 contract agreements for RCMP police  services between the federal government and all provinces and territories except Ontario and Quebec.  "We had reached an impasse in the negotiations. This extension  will permit us to create a new climate and discuss the issues in a  more positive light," said Mr. Lewis.  The agreements were previously negotiated in 1981 and expired  last March. Current negotiations have focused on how the cost associated with RCMP policing will be shared between the federal government and contracting jurisdictions.  A dwindling market for recycled materials is threatening  recycling depots on die Coast  For some time now It has not  been possible to sell plastics,  and recently a glut on the market has caused Lower Mainland  buyers to refuse all shipments of  green glass. Although one company is still willing to take  white and brown glass, they  will not pay for it.  This leaves only cardboard,  paper, tin and aluminum as revenue products for local depots,  and they need this income to  cover the costs of transporting  the material to Vancouver.  In Gibsons, SCRAPS volunteers acknowledge the donations of money, material and  services from government and  local businesses, but suggest that  with the provincial government  calling for a 50 per cent reduction In solid waste disposal by  the year 2000, it is time government stepped in to fund and  organize a province-wide recycling system.  f__  NEW?  ��� S'NCl   1HJ0-  On thTCoasl  Baby  Bride or bride to be  Have w�� visited YOU ymt?

The FAC had  such a personage in attendance  at the last FAC meeting.  Bob Pope, Appraisal Officer  for the Ministry of Forests, attended the meeting in an attempt to explain and clarify for  the committee the rationale behind the government's assessment of stumpage rates.  Pope said that all stumpage  rates are set from the same  source, a Ministry of Forests  manual. He said the dictates of  the manual apply to every logging outfit in the province.  "We (the Ministry of Forests)  do not negotiate the stumpage  rates," he said. Pope said the  present system for assessing  rates has only been In place  since October of 1987. It replaced the "Rockly system",  which had been used for the  previous fifty years.  The present system, according to Pope, came into being  largely due to outside pressure  from logging interests in the  United States. American loggers  of the Northwest, fearing for  their livelihoods, lobbied  Congress and persuaded the  government of the day that  cheap Canadian lumber represented a threat to that country's  own timber industry.  " The American solution to  that," said Pope, "grew to be a  15 per cent tariff on Canadian  lumber."  The Canadian government  and BC's provincial government  agreed that, by increasing the  stumpage charges within the  country to a point that would  appease the US, the 1$ percent  tariff would remain In Canada  rather than "go Into the pockets  of the Americans."  Pope went on to say the  aMnerlcans were not Inclined to  accept the word of Canadians  and wanted proof of strict,  quarterly controls on the  stumpage rates. He also noted  that, with the change in the  stumpage becoming Imminent,  the Canadian government was  drawn to the idea of having a  new source of Income, derived  from revenue generated from  stumpage fee.  In attempting to organize an  all-encompassing stumpage rate  system, the government stripped  the loopholes out of the timber  industry. By boiling off all the  variable costs and prices of logging,   and   arriving  at   a  "noncompetitive" amount (the  minimum amount of capital that  any size logging company  would need to operate), the  government arrived at a "base"  stumpage rate for every single  logging company in the  province, regardless of size or  method of operation.  After analyzing the past Id  years of logging, the government  dien established "target rates" for  BC; a target rate being an  amount charged for stumpage  that, when adjusted quarterly as  the Americans had insisted,  resulted in a foretold and  guaranteed revenue for the  provincial government.  There are. according to  Pope, two distinct areas of logging in BC, the entire Coast accounting for one of them. Each  area has its own target rate.  Pope told FAC members the  amount realized by the provincial government on an annual  basis was $650,000,000.  "It's a closed system," said  Pope, "Il's income the government can rely on."  One of the main problems  with the present system arises  when loggers see their stumpage  rates go up while the demand  for their product drops. Pope  said this was a hard phenomenon to explain.  Apparently it stems from the  balancing act being done to assure the target goal is met, and  often has little to do wilh the  actual loggers.  The government needs to get  Its pound of flesh," quipped one  of the committee members.  Another concern brought up  at the meeting dealt with the  hardships that could .soon be  facing the entire logging industry if the stumpage system is not  changed In the near future.  It was pointed out that, in  the first five years of the system,  numerous small logging operations have been put out of business though paying the same  stumpage rates as their larger  counterparts. Because of the  government's insistence that the  annual target rate be met, the  companies that continue to survive will be forced to pay an  ever Increasing portion of the  stumpage.  "Just to keep their coffers  full," noted SCRD Director Jim  Gumey. He voiced the opinion  that the stumpage fees were disproportionate, and were, In reality, little more than a form of  taxation.  "There's nothing different between this and how we (SCRD  Directors) levy tax on properties," he said.  CANADIAN  PARTS PLUS  OVER 20 INDEPENDENT PARTS PLUS SUPPLIERS TO SERVE YOU IN B.C.
