 Barrett blasts BCRIC  bv John Burnside  NDP Leader Dave  Association, during  Barrett is pictured in conversation with Doris Puller, Past President of the Sunshine Coast Teachers'  Barrett's recent visit to the Sunshine Coast.  NDP leader Davie Barrett was at his witty, slashing best during  a visit to the Sunshine Coast last week. Barren was the featured  speaker at a fund-raising dinner in the Roberts Creek Community  Hall last Friday which saw the old hall tilled lo capacity with the  party faithful.  Also present and featured as warm-up speakers were federal  MP for this riding Ray Skelly and provincial Ml.A Don  Lockstead.  Barrett drew a prolonged standing ovation at the conclusion of  his speech which saw him concentrate on the British Columbia  Resources Investment Corporation, its recent acquisition of  Kaiser Coal, and thc recent dispute over energy between the  Western provincial governments ami its implications for the  future of Canada.  "BCRIC is Bill Bennett's child hut now he's denying paternity,"  said Barrett. "As soon as it has messy diapers he runs awaj from  ,t."  Ihe NDP leader charged thai Premier Bennett had told ihe  people of British Columbia to participate iu the purchase ol  BCRIC shares. "It was a unique opportunity," said Barrett,  "Never before have people been offered ihe opportunity to bin  something they already owned."  "Bill Bennett told you lhat you would find oul how the slock  market worked, another rare opportunity. And you lune. Ile gave  us Kaiser Bill and now you know all aboul the difference between  herrings and sharks. It's Baimun. Bailey and Bennett. There's a  sucker born every minute and Bill Bennett is oul lo prove it."  Barrett charged that everyone who bought shares in BCRIC al  the.premier's invitation had losi monej as a result. "Ihe little  people believed their premier. Many of them borrowed money at  today's exorbitant interest rates to buy BCRIC shares but despite  thc optimistic forecast of Premier Bennett ihe shares are slill  selling on the stock market at $6.25 per share.  According to Barrett the big winner in the purchase ol Kaiser  Coal by the BCRIC was the president of Kaiser Coal. Edgar  Kaiser.  "Kaiser bought the coal, our coal, a few years ago lor S55  million. Today Kaiser is walking away wilh hall a billion dollars  and he gets to buy haek Kaiser Oil lor SI 5 million despite the fact  that no one knows what it is truly worth."  Barrett charged that people who used their savings lo hu\  BCRIC shares had been 'used in a very cheap way'. He said lhal  the purchase of Kaiser Coal by BCRIC had created only Iwo new  jobs in the province. "Ilclliwell gets kicked upstairs at SI 25.111)11 a  year for creating the mess and Bruce Howe gels hired at twice the  price to clean up the mess."  "I'm nol going to talk tonight aboul ihe Duty I ricks business or  Grade's linger or any other pan of her anatomy." said Barrett.  "bin this is a government which is slea/y and BCRIC is the prime  example."  Barrett pointed oui lo an appreciative audience that ihe NDP  had bought ihe companies which comprised the original holdings  of BCRIC'to save jobs'. "In six years the companies were worth  ten times what we paid for them then Bennett gels rid "I them.  Why'.' Why is it that we sell the money makers and leave the  taxpayers to continue to support the money-losing companies  bought hy the Socreds'.' Why don't we sell B.C. Rail and B.<  Hydro and keep the companies that are making money'.'"  "We have losi a beautiful opportunity to put thc BCRIC money  to work for this province." charged Barren, "and instead we have  watched a hall a billion dollars leave the economy of this province  and head south into the United Stales."  ������������i m mWummMtgkwm��;:>_i'i*A__ai-  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  25c per copy on news stands  Delivered to every address on the Coast  November 11, 1980  Volume 34, Number 45  saeF.MUA^tsMwe.'ia  Millions of dollars lost to Canada  NDP leader rips energy record  by John Burnside  NDP leader Davie Barrett devoted a major portion of his  speech to thc party's fund-raising dinner last Friday lo the  Canadian energy crisis.  "I have come to the conclusion," said Barrett, "that the oil and  gas in this country was not planted in the ground by Texaco, Shell  or Esso. I know how difficult it is to come to this conclusion. I've  watched the NHL on television. I watch Canadian football on  television. I've seen the advertisfng'the oil companies put on."  Barrett referred to a specific Esso advertisement which showed  the dedicated men of Imperial Oil preparing to drill in Canada.  "They're screwing a big hole in the back of Canada," said Barrett.  "It's thc most honest advertising I've ever seen."  Barrett was withering in his criticism of Premier Peter  Lougheed of Alberta and B.C.'s Premier Bennett. "It's Edgar  Bergen in Alberta and Charlie McCarthy in B.C.," said Barrett.  "Edgar says leave the oil companies alone and Charlie says 'Me  too, mc too'".  "Don't get the idea that Lougheed and Bennett are fighting for  the citizens of Western Canada. They're fighting for the oil  companies." charged Barrett.  The NDP leader said thc 45% of the oil profits at present go to  Alberta; 45% go to the oil companies; and 10% to Canada. "The  Liberals are suggesting that Alberta's share should be43%; the oil  companies should get 43%; and Canada should get 23%i. 1 say why  not 45% to Alberta and Canada and 10% to the oil companies?"  "We still pay 75% of the costs of exploration and the oil  companies get the oil," said Barrett.  Barrett took particular issue with a spokesman for the oil  companies who recently charged in a radio interview that the  present federal moves on energy were analogous to Hitler's  confiscation of Jewish property during the I930's. "This is a  particularly obscene analogy," said Barrett. "Do some historical  research and find out who financed Hitler in the first place, lt was  thc 'Seven Sisters' the big oil companies and Texaco in particular.  Never have there been greater supporters of fascist regimes than  the international oil companies," said Barrett.  Barrett asserted that the fnuch publicized federal deficit could  be cancelled this year if the deferred taxes allowed the oil  companies were collected. He pointed out that Petrocan had been  brought into being when the oil cartels diverted oil destined for  Canada to the United States twenty-four months ago. "Thc oil  cartel is not a responsible group." charged Barrett. "They hold  allegiance to no flag or country. Their only motivation is greed."  Closer lo thc energy scene at home, Barrett pointed out that  when thc NDP came lo power in 1972 B.C. was exporting natural  gas to thc United States for 31 cents per thousand cubic feet.  "When we wanted to raise the prices thc federal Liberals and the  provincial Socreds said our American friends should not pay  more. Today they are paying $4.70 per thousand cubic feet but  only because Mexico forced up thc price for us."  Barrett related an anecdote about an exchange between  himself as premier and Don Macdonald, then Liberal Energy  Minister. "We wanted SI.00 per thousand cubic feet and  Macdonald went down to Washington, D.C. and made a speech  in which he called such a price increase savage. I demanded a  public hearing. Two weeks before the public hearing he sent mc a  wire saying wc could charge 99 cents. I sent back another wire to  Macdonald which read 'A penny for your thoughts'".  Barrett pointed out thai the price for Canada's natural gas  under Premier Bennett had risen ohly'from $2.16 to S.2.32 per  thousand cubic feet between 1976 and 1979. "Then the Mexican  Ambassador made a speech in Edmonton pointing out that  during thai period because of the pricing policy on natural gas  Canada had losi SHOO million and B.C. had lost $250 million in  revenue.  "I'm a little tired about all this talk about fighting Ottawa," said  Barrett. "The Liberals say they want 50% Canadian ownership of  oil in ten years. I say why not 100%) in 36 months. It is not a  mistake for us to make money from our own resources."  Barrett told the meeting that after he used thc profits from  increased natural gas prices to buy a portion of Westcoast  Transmission he was asked by an American banker in New York  "Where did you learn to buy American companies with the profits  from your resources?" "1 told him I'd grown up in a country where  thc Americans had been doing exactly that all mv life." said the  NDP leader.   "  Barrett pointed oul that the NDP had expropriated no  companies during their years in power. "Wc did not expropriate,  nationalize or seize. The companies we bought were bought by  revenues from our natural resources. The only company  expropriated in B.C. was expropriated by W.A.C. Bennett���B.C.  Electric."  He agreed wiih a questioner at the end ofthe meeting that the  deferred taxes owed by Ihe oil companies could well be used as a  down payment for their purchase.  "When wc talked about charging more for our resources the  Socreds said it was socialism and dangerous. Now they are in  power it is called a tax-gathering agency and they are fighting  Ottawa to protect it. When we talked about public health  insurance it was socialized medicine and dangerous. Now it's  Medicare and everyone is in favour of it. I say if it is good enough  for medicine il is good enough for Ihe oil companies."  The NDP leader said thai if Bill Bennett was serious about his  confrontation with Ottawa he should let the people of B.C. speak  in a general election.  "I am confident what thc result would be. This is the worst  government this province has ever had. Bill Bennett is not in  trouble politically because of Bill Bennett. He is in 1 rouble because  the people of this province are starting to think. And I offer Bill  Bennett my assistance as a social worker so that he can start to  think too."  Two seek school board seat  The only school board election this year is for the scat as Sechelt  representative on thc School Board of School District #46. Bcnoil  LePage is presenting himself as a candidate for the seat which will  also be contested by Warren McKibbin.  LePage is seeking to become a school trustee on a platform of  increased rights for teenagers, roller-skating within the school  system and a more lenient policy in the schools for such things as  school dances, crosswalks, music over the public address system, a  crises centre for teenagers, and improved counselling to impress  upon teenagers the importance of acquiring a Grade Twelve  education.  McKibbin gives as his reason for running the fact that trustee  Maureen Clayton has retired and he feels that the village of  Sechelt deserves someone on the board with a strong voice.  "I've been deeply involved in the past," said McKibbin, "and  now I feel I must continue my involvement."  The Sechelt chartered accountant said that he was vitally  concerned about whether or not Chatelech was going to expand  smoothly inlo a full Junior-Senior Secondary School.  "I believe that this can happen without adversely affecting the  quality of education anywhere on the Sunshine Coast."  McKibbin told the Coast News that he was interested in  promoting as high a quality of education as possible throughout  the district at every educational level.  "1 feel there is no doubt that Sechelt children have had difficulty  in getting involved at Elphinstone socially, academically and  athletically because of the busing situation that they face."  McKibbin sees a good academic level as being possible in both  Chatelech and Elphinstone with social and athletic aspects ofthe  schools benefiting from a healthy, positive rivalry.  "Since we moved up to Sechelt we have been very happy with  the quality of education offered and would like to see that high  level maintained."  Voting in the election for school trustee will take place in  Sechelt Municipal Hall between thc hours of 8:00 am. and 8:00  pm.  The Navy League were out doing their bit last week selling poppies to raise money for the disabled veterans.  Gibsons busy  vote scene  The busiest place on the Sunshine Coast this Saturday is almost  certain to be the (iibsons Municipal Hall. Four candidates are  contesting two aldermanic seats on (iibsons council, made vacant  by the retirement of Alderman Stuart K. Metcalfe and Dick  Fitchett.

Simple common sense  Something overdue is happening to  Dave Barrett. He is becoming respectable.  The leader of the provincial NDP has  long been acknowledged by all but the  most narrow-minded of bigots as one of  the most attractive political figures in  Canada. Quite simply, Barrett is a  political performer of a quality which has  just about become as extinct as the dodo  bird. The man is a master of public  address. Were he not a politician he could  make a comfortable living as a first class  stand up comedian.  It is the opinion here that Barrett is  also Anally getting recognition as being a  man with something remarkably pertinent to say. When he talks about the  Canadian energy policy these days he  really isn't saying anything he hasn't  said before but things are changing in  this country of ours.  When Exxon a couple of years ago  diverted a shipment of oil from Canada  in November to satisfy some customers  south of the line it seemed to snap the  Canadian public into some awareness  that their lifeline supply of winter fuel  was most vulnerable. It made the public  and their government, both, aware  at last that the multi-national oil companies were not just decent old buddies  who'd never let Canada down but a  grasping and indifferent profit mechanism that could and did ignore Canada's  needs the first time it suited them to do  so.  Petrocan was born as a result of that  incident and it says here that Joe Clark's  insistence on dismembering Petrocan had  as much to do with his election defeat as  did John Crosby's budget.  The other day there was a radio  newsreporter who interviewed some  Canadians in Edmonton, of all places,  about why they were flocking to the  newly opened Petrocan retail gasoline  outlets. To a man those interviewed said  that they thought it was a damn good  idea to keep as much of the profits of the  oil industry in this country as possible.  It has always been true, of course, but  Canada and Canadians always have  seemed to have so much of everything  that no one seemed to care that control of  the priceless resources the country contained was being given away hand over  fist and had been for a couple of generations.  Slow as it has been, the realization has  finally come to Canadians that it is folly in  the extreme to allow billions of dollars in  revenues from a Canadian resource to be  bled out of the country by multi-national  companies which in a time of scarcity and  approaching winter won't even reciprocate with a scheduled delivery of badly  needed fuel.  So, when Dave the entertainer hit his  stride the other night he was saying  things which would previously have been  regarded with disapproval by the vast  majority of his countrymen as being  unfriendly or dangerously radical. Suddenly, thanks to the magic of changing  times and circumstances, Dave Barrett's  call for control by Canadians of their own  resources in an uncertain world begins  to appear as simple common sense -  which, of course, is what it has always  been.  from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  Sechelt council stated that the  village had no intention of changing its  municipal status and requested that a  "dissolution clause" in the airport  agreement requested by Gibsons  council, which would provide for total  ownership of the airport to revert to  Gibsons should Sechelt "cease to be",  be removed from the agreement. In a  letter to Transport Canada Sechelt  council denied rumours that the village  was planning a change in status and  stated that the clause was unnecessary  and in bad taste.  Construction began on the new Port  Mellon Industries Credit Union Building in lower Gibsons.  TEN YEARS AGO  Sechelt council announced that  since the Municipal Office was at last  completely paid for, council was  considering an extension of the  building which would bring Provincial  offices, courts, and Ihe municipal  offices under one rool  Ken Watson sells his Ken's Lucky  Dollar store in the village of Gibsons to  W D. Edney who will shortly settle in  Gibsons with his wife Joyce, son  Graham, and daughter Julia.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  Sechelt was considering a move to  expand its municipal boundaries from  the western end of West Sechelt to the  Girl Guide Camp at Wilson Creek.  Wesl Sechelt, however, was reported  to be reconsidering the amalgamation  proposal and backing away from a  merger with the village.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  A Gibsons and Area Ratepayers  Association meeting devoted most ol  Ihe evening to a discussion of the  problems of garbage collection and  disposal in unorganized areas. Barrie  MacDonald. sanitarian for the area.  outlined various systems of pickup and  disposal in use in other areas. It was  revealed that a canyon near Langdale  Creek was being used as an unauthorized dump by some residents, with a  possible harmful effect on the creek  water. Residents were also concerned  about the possibility of an increase in  the rat population if large centralized  dumps were established.  TWENTY FIVE YEARS AGO  Heavy rainfalls on the coast nearly  wiped the Clowholm Power Plant. The  rampaging waters and high winds,  which undermined the switch yard and  tipped transformers against one  another, also knocked down several  large trees in Roberts Creek and  caused widespread power outages.  Emergency crews from Nanaimo had  to be flown in to help rescue the plant,  while swollen rivers knocked out  bridges, notably at Mission Creek,  Hastings Creek, and Roberts Creek,  bringing traffic on the coast to a  standstill.  Gibsons  newly completed  Public  Library announced two weeks of "open  house" events to enable residents to  become familiar with the new facilities.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  The Coast News noted the passing  of Garfield Edwards, whodiedsuddenly while on a visit to friends at Porpoise  Bay. For some years Edwards and his  brother operated a "boat-store", the  popular M.V. Pappy, along the coast,  earning Edwards the nickname of "the  travelling storekeeper".  Coast News editorials pointed out  that if James Sinclair, MP for the area,  wished to follow through on his  promise to build more wharves, docks,  jetties and small boat harbours along  the coast, he would be adivsed to use  his own money, do the work himself,  and work nights. The editorial supported Fisheries Minister Ron Mayhew,  who recently recommer dr:d that fast  ferries over short wate; links and a  system of good highways connected to  ferry terminals would be a better  answer to transportation difficulties on  the coast.  THIRTY FIVE YEARS AGO  The Coast News noted that the  Sechelt Improvement Association was  rapidly growing into an influential  body in the community, pressing for  road improvements and extended  water service. The executive of the  Association was calling for all those  eligible for membership to give the  society every support.  A prototype model of the newly  invented power chain saw was demonstrated locally at Halfmoon Bay.  Port Mellon Highway under construction. A road along West Howe Sound to link  Longview, Seaside. Port Mellon, and Hillside with the Straight of Georgia system  had been dreamed and talked about from years past. Every election cycle seemed to  produce renewed interest in the project until, so it was said, one could make the trip  on survey stakes. In 1950. following acquisition ofthe pulp mill by Canadian Forest  Products, work was at length begun on an actual road���not along thc waterfront.  as initially visualized, hut farther up thc mountainside. Un August 15, 1952.  contractor Hill Brandon took photographer Gordon Rallentine in thc first vehicle  to travel the entire roadbed. Gordon brought back a pictorial record ofthe historic  journey. Ihis scene shows one of Bill's bulldozer operators carefully covering the  Hillside water line, w hich powered the entire gravel plant. In the background can be  seen thc logging road, still in use today, up the McNair Valley. The Port Mellon  Highway was opened to public use in 1953.

Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  ��^  George Matthews  It's a grey and dreary  month, November, made the  more so by reason of the fact  that the months which follow  hold out the promise of  nothing better.  It's bad enough here on the  Sunshine Coast as the leaves  fall and the autumn with them  into a bedraggled greyness. It  was worse in the Yukon  where I spent three years a  long time ago. November in  Dawson City is truly the  month of the dead. The  temperature hits forty below,  with significant improvement  months away. Forty below and  worse to come for months.  Along with the plummeting  temperatures the light is  fading dramatically. Already  by November the cheerful  newcomers, young teachers  and nurses who arrive in  August and September oohing  and aahing their delight at  the beauty of the place, are  beginning to show the first  signs of cabin fever. The  parties grow more desperately giddy and relentlessly  frequent. It's the first time  folk who have the most  trouble. If you stay for even  a second year you learn to  pace yourself. It's a long, cold,  dark winter and madness lies  the way pointed by all-night  parties and much drinking.  Many who come with fresh,  young enthusiasm into the  north limp off as soon as their  contractual obligations are  met and sometimes before,  convinced that sanity and the  northern dark are irreconcilably opposed.  It is a softer climate here on  the Sunshine Coast and  November, nor any month,  cannot keep us huddled  indoors. Then, too, the isolation is not a factor, Van  couver and the bright lights  is always available if we need  a change of venue. In Dawson  City you are a couple of  thousand miles from anything  that is truly different and the  northerner's need for fresh  faces can be gauged by the  immense distances they are  prepared to travel in the  middle of winter for curling  bonspiels or anything else that  is happening.  Still, when the rains of  November begin to fall, particularly after an October  as poignantly beautiful as the  one we have just enjoyed,  the greyness of winter closes  in and joyfulness, or a reason  for it, is hard to find.  What's to be done with  November then? The solution,  I think, is one that the be-  seiged newcomers in Dawson  City instinctively turn to and I  don't mean a frenzied and  continuous round of parties.  The solution is other people,  not an excessive socialization  but rather the contemplation  of good friends. Like the  watery shafts of sunlight that  once in a while break briefly  through the November clouds,  the consideration of friends is  a comfort and a joy.  For myself, I feel that I have  been most fortunate in my  days and years in that I have  known a goodly number of  people whose very existence  lends a warmth and a cheerfulness to the greyest and  most forlorn of November  days.  May I suggest, then, as an  antidote for November when  the lowering clouds and  pouring rain depress our  spirits and curtail our activities, that we give thought to  those who have stood beside  us   in   difficult  days.   Loyal  friends who stand beside one  in the sunshine and the rain  are never plentiful, which is  why they are so valuable.  A toast then, in the grey  days, to friends absent and  present who have endured  with us the sunshine and the  rain. Life has nothing sweeter  or more important to offer  than friendships which have  stood the test of time or  provided shelter in the stormy  day. To good, true friends,  then. Bless them all.  *****  As I stumble through my  bemused days I am frequently  struck with flashes of what  seems to be clarity on occasion. Often they are just  little tag ends of thought  or questions that occur. 1  thought I might share a few  of these with you if and when  they occur. Let's call them  odds and musends:  MUSENDS:  Innocence is ever renewable,  being   largely   a   matter   of  attitude.  **���  Dire Prediction: Death comes  suddenly and from the left.  ��*���  Darley to Pursewarden:  Who's who?  *�����  Fantasies,    like   butterflies,  must be handled gently lest  their delicate fabrics tear.  ��� *���  I saw a lady today who bent  and picked up a bedraggled  pink carnation from the  November pavement and put  it on a low and nearby wall so  that it might for a short  while longer delight the  passersby.  by George Matthews  I'm a great one for writing  letters to prominent people,  especially politicians. The  volume of letters I have  composed for the purpose of  communicating with persons  of power would make the  manuscript of War and Peace  diminish to the status of  shallow doodling.  The problem is that I never  mail these correspondences.  Sometimes I don't have a  stamp and the letter lies on  my nightstand until the  recipient has either died or  been defeated in some long  forgotten election. Sometimes  I mistakenly toss the missive  in the trash can or use it to  start the fire. Mostly however,  I have recognized that my  letters of political advice were  not intended for the addressee  but for expunging my own  compulsions.  My latest effort was penned  24 hours after the American  election and was addressed to  the President Elect. It reads:  Dear Mr. Reagan,  Congratulations on the  stunning victory you and your  party have won. I concede to  the fact that your upset and its  extent have left me amazed,  shocked and dumbfounded,  but please do not allow my  surprise to detract in any way  from the completeness of your  exaltations of victory.  It is not, sir, that I have  any great misapprehensions  concerning your ability to  grace that most esteemed  office. It is rather, Governor,  that I would never have  guessed it. I think Mr. Truman best expressed my  feelings regarding your sound  whipping of the Democrats  when he stated, upon the  death of President Roosevelt  and his ascendency to the  Presidency, that he felt,  "as though the sun, the moon  and all the stars had fallen  on me".  (I mean no disrespect,  sir, in using the words of a  Democrat, Mr. Truman, in  this context and have indeed  noted in yourself an inclination towards quoting the  former and present members  of that political party),  I only seek to find the  words, Mr. President-Elect,  to   express   my   amazement  Please turn to Page Sixteen.

"Gabrielle" Coast News, November 11. 1980  This situation has definitely gotten out of hand  Letters to the Editor  Sunday shopping supported  Editor:  The owners of Ken's Lucky  Dollar Store are to be commended for organizing their  business so that those who  wish to lay in fresh provisions  for the coming week may do so  in their available time.  Many people on the Peninsula and the surrounding  areas  are  self-employed   in  small business and cannot  take the time during the week  to do their weekly grocery  shopping for fresh supplies.  As long as I can remember  there has always been a  grocery store open on Sunday  in the villages along the Coast  to serve transient people and  others whose only day off is  Vote "yes" on Referendum  Sunday when they are self-  employed.  There always will be a large  boating population, both commercial and pleasure, and  every rural village, it seems to  me, needs an outlet for  these people on the waterfront.  Yours very truly,  W.Y. Higgs  Editor:  I am writing to urge people  to get ot and vole YES on the  Specified Area Recreation  Facilities Assistance Referendum. This is for Areas E and F  on Nov. 15. 1980.  1 feel this is the right  approach to achieving good  recreation services within easy  reach of the public in our area.  By uniting areas E, Fand the  Village of Gibsons in this way  wc can all benefit from and be  proud of the improved facilities. With a ceiling of 75';; of  thc funds going to the pool, we  can be assured our parks will  receive   the   upgrading   and  developing they so badly need.

I'd like to thank Mr. Westwurld Sound for putting a stop  to using chauvinistic methods  in his advertisements. I must  say I agree with the other  two ladies who wrote letters  to the Editor to complain.  If I was not such a fan of  Mr. Westwurld, I'd say he  was a "chauvinistic pig".  But I think he's learned his  lesson ladies. He's been living  on his own for three years now  and was getting a little out of  hand.

Don  Black, the super, decides to  shut thc trackloadcr down as it  needs some major monkey-  wrenching. Justin Carver, the  engineer stays with the machine  to work on repairs. Cecil  Jimmy, the chaser, and mysell  are sent over to thc steel-tower.  When Cecil Jimmy, who is on  the chubby side, learns we are  expected to set-chokers, he  elects to be laid-off until our  machine is mobile again. 1 go  out on the rigging. Hell, it's my  second home and my rate will  slay the same.  The spartrec stands like a  yellow chimney at the far  deadend of a lower road. They  are yarding a large hall-setting  and the lines reach out twelve-  hundred feet across one ofthe  steeper pitches of the bowl. It is  a straight forward highlead setup.

Ericson, the engineer and  Davis, the grapple-operator are  unremarkable men in their  middle-years. Ihe final crew-  member is old Casey Dunlap,  the chaser.  Casey is '(Jrandaddy lough'  to me from the start. When I  first saw him on the camp boat  that ferries us to work in the  morning. I wondered what his  job could be. He's squat as a  fir-stump with a jowly boyfaee  that laughs often but he's  patently no spring-chicken. I'd  figured him for a roadman or  maybe a mechanic. I was  amazed to learn he was working thc steelspar landing. This  job, over the years, has become  one of the most-gruelling in the  woods. One man is now  required to do the work of  several - bucking, limbing and  stamping logs in addition to  unhooking chokers. It calls for  stamina'and speed. Yet here is  Casey at 67, still tackling that  boy's-labour and holding his  own.

We've hooked on to an  enormous cedar at the back-  end and it's lloundering across  the ruined hill toward the tree.  Its weight has dragged it far  below the road-line toward the  bottom of the valley. The  donkey shudders and snorts as  il winds the great butt-log in.  The mainline'* a dead-taut  silver bowstring. Suddenly  there's a subliminal Hash across  our vision; a great elangingand  banging from the tower-unit.  The cedar takes off like a crazy  thing, bouncing, tumbling 500  feet down thc slope; slamming  to rest in a slash-strewn hole.  I've seen mainlines break  before but seldom so dramatically. The cable must have  snapped at thc very top of thc  spar. "Dying Christ!" says  someone "did you sec that bitch  go?" We stand gazing im-  potently for a minute, adjusting  to it.  "Later for this noise!" decides Gerry Manson. "Someone else can straighten out that  bloody jackpot!" He grabs his  gutcan and heads for the  landing. Thc rest of us trail in  after him. That's some mess to  untangle all right. I'm half-  tempted to quit myself but I'm  still in hock from last winter.  Don Black is already at the  tree when we get there, staring  about in unconcealed dismay.  "Can't figure it out" he declares  "that goddamn line only had a  few month's wear on it!"  "Just like everything else  these days" snorts grizzled  Casey. "Don't last worth a  shit!"  Black's troubles are just  beginning. Manson announces  that he's quitting and the rest of  the rigging crew who are  cronies of his, follow suit. They  remain impervious to the  super's pleas and climb aboard  the crummy. Davis, thc grap-  plcman drives them down to  camp. "Don't make loggers  worth a goddamn no more  either!" Casey growls disgustedly.  Black seems to have gone  into a momentary state of  shock over it all. He's a dark,  even-featured man in his mid-  forties, a former shovel-operator with little gut logging  experience. But he's a pleasant-  enough guy to work for and I  can sympathize with his dilemma. He pulls himself together. "Listen, Casey" he says,  "I hate to ask but figure you can  take over hooking here till 1  hunt up some more men?"  "Sure, I'll do her for that  long," he agrees gruffly. "First  off we'd better try and get that  sonolawhore unscrambled."  'He unhooks the strawline, I  grab a chain and we angle down  the hill to where the turn has  rolled. About 600 feet of  mainline lies strewn untidily  across thc slash and coiled in  random loops around thc  runaway log. The cedar is lying  against a big conky fir stump  with thc butt-rigging underneath and the choker pulled  tighter lhan a tug-of-war rope.  Casey, wheezing a bit, sits  down on a hemlock chunk,  lights a cigarette and looks the  situation over. He shakes his  head. "Ain't seen a better  screw-up than that in a long  time!"  It's a thorny proposition.  Finally, by using the haulbaek  line, wc manage to roll the log  sufficiently to unhook the  jammed choker. Then we chain  the broken end ofthe mainand  pull it into the tree. By this time  its close to 4:30. "Enough crap  for one day! says Casey. "Let's  go to hell home. I need a beer."  To be continued.

Astrology  Bill Murray as a country dub groundskeeper in the Orion-Warner Brother!  comedy "Caddyshack"  At the Twilight  The wildly successful comedy Animal House inevitably  spawned a host of imitations,  but until C.aililyshiii-k, none  could sustain the consistently  high level of low comedy  preferred by the original. Not  surprisingly, Catlilyshack was  written by Saturday Night  Live alumnus Brian Doyle-  Murray and Animal House  creators Harold Ramis and  Doug Kenney.  What Animal House did to  fraternities, Cutliksltark does  to country clubs. "Bushwood"  is a stylish, WASP-infested golf  club inhabited by snooty  businessmen, lazy caddies,  elusive gophers and a deranged  groundskeeper whose war with  a particularly pernicious gopher results in the course being  booby-trapped with plastic  explosives shaped like squirrels  and rabbits.  The groundskeeper is played  by Bill M urray and the club pro  by Chevy Chase, both Saturday Night Live alumni, and  though somewhat thin on  plot, like its predecessor,  Caddyshack is a non-stop  barrage of broad comedy  punctuated by sharp one-liners  from Rodney Dangerfield.who  plays a loudmouth millionaire.  Caddyshack plays at the Twilight Theatre from Wednesday  November 12 to Saturday  November 15.  Soldier of Orange, playing  at the Twilight from Sunday  November 16 to Tuesday  November 18, is an excellent  study of people under pressure  and oppression. It focuses on  the fate of a group of Dutch  students and their gradual  coming to grips with the loss of  their liberty, their illusions and  the grim reality of the invasion  and occupation of their country.  In the Low Countries, where  many nations were unable to  openly resist the Nazi invasion,  and where the question of  allegiance was complicated by  families having branches in  Germany, partisan feeling and  the moral dilemma of resistance collaboration or neutrality were particulary acute.  Soldier of Orungi', however,  avoids getting mired in brooding existential angst. Director  Paul Verhoeven has obviously  kept Hollywood in mind and  produced an excellent action  film as well.

NOV. 22. 9.30 a.m. -12:30 p.m. Off the  shelf  Rare Indian art show  Coast News, November 11, 1980  by John Moore  The development of highly  portable cameras has had a  profound effect on the recording of human experience,  providing us with a means of  capturing the immediacy of  experiences that were formerly left to the imaginations of  writers and graphic artists to  recreate.  When the recording eye of  the camera was first turned  on the battlefields of the  world, the images it captured  produced stunned shock in the  viewer. Artists in the past,  with a few notable exceptions  like Goya and Leonardo Da  Vinci, have tended to concentrate on the heroic rather  than the horrific aspects of  war. Likewise, oral and  written accounts, many of  which have attempted to  convey the horrors of war,  have always been suspected of  a certain poetic license.  The camera, however, captured the muddy and bloody  reality of war with an undeniable and terrifying clarity.  It suddenly became difficult  to reconcile the propaganda  of glory with the empty  shellshocked faces and  sprawled faceless bodies on  the film.  The problem with books of  war photographs is that the  individual images begin to  lose their impact, when  collected, through repetition.  Even death and destruction  becomes commonplace when  presented without contrast.  The effect of contrast is  what gives photographer Ken  Bell's book Not in Vain its  extraordinary power. Ken Bell  is a professional photographer  who, during the war, served in  the Film and Photo Section  of the Canadian Army. Not In  Vain is essentially a photographic history of the Canadian Army's part in the  liberation of Northern Europe  during World War II. Published in 1973 by the University of Toronto Press,  Not In Vain presents side-by-  side photographs of parts of  Northern Europe in a "Before  and After" format.  The colour photographs of  pleasant green countryside  and clean modern cities throw  the stark black and white  wartime shots into sharp  relief. In many instances,  Bell has tried to approximate  not only the general location  but the actual angle and  positioning of surviving landmarks in photographs taken  twenty-five years after the  original.  Bell is obviously well aware  of the value of contrast.  In 1953 he published Curtln  Call, a similar volume of  pictures which illustrated the  changes wrought by man and  nature in the interval of five  years since VE Day. Of Not In  Vain Bell himself says, "To  some it will recall their own  experiences, and to others,  I hope, it will say something  of the nature and significance  of the last war in Europe.''  As to the nature of war, Not  In Vain records an unparallel-  led panorama of destruction  and waste on a continental  scale. The significance of  any war is an inexhaustible  subject for old soldiers and  historians, but it is sufficient  to say that Bell's two photographs ofthe beach at Dieppe,  where thousands of Canadians  died in the disastrous 1942  Dieppe Raid, speak volumes.  On the left, a g rim black and  white of the beach littered  with smoking machinery and  Canadian dead; on the right,  the same beach, deserted but  for a pair of lovers embracing  obliviously on the spotless  pebbled shore.  The juxtaposition of these  two photographs is charged  with a disturbing ambivalence. More than a reminder  that the freedom of one  generation is bought with the  blood of another, it is a  portrait of ourselves as a  species, poised precariously  between our own proclivities  for love and hate, miraculous  creation and awesome destruction. It's something to  think about this week. All  for now.  Book Look  bv Murrie Redman  Madame Benoit's World of Food, McGraw-Hill Rycrson, Oct.  1980, $17.95  Canadian Bread Book by J.M. Gill. McGraw-Hill Rverson. Oct.  1980. paper SI2.95  Shark: Sea Food of the Future by Eddy llovey, McGraw-Hill  Ryerson, 1980, $9.95 binder.  Three cook hooks just off the presses offer the seasoned cook a  little shot-in-the-pot. For the man or woman who has everything,  including a fully stocked kitchen, these three might be good gift  ideas.  The Canadian cook, Madame Benoit, brings a World of Food  in her book. As she travels the world, she picks up recipes which  arc modern renditions of traditional fare. Also in metric, thc  recipes can add variety to the gourmet's diet while enriching his  knowledge of a particular country's cuisine.  Benoit's amusing accounts telling how. where and why she  acquired these delights are as pleasurable as her collection.  With so many homes going back lo baking their own bread, the  Canadian Bread Book is a useful item. There are festive breads,  sour doughs and pastry twists; braids, buns and herb breads. Few  arc missing. The beginner will enjoy the background material and  primary methods of bread making. The experienced will revel in  the variety ol this just-bread book. Again, helpfully, all recipes are  given in bolh regular and metric. From starters to Stollcn, from  pumpernickel lo Design-Your-Own bread, they arc all to be found  in this illustrated paperbound delight.  Man cats shark. A very unusual cook book, is Shark: Sea Food  of the Future. At the hack of this fascinating collection of shark  recipes is a section showing the many kinds of shark from the  While down to thc Dogfish. While we convert our little coastal  shark lo fertilizer, many countries use them as their diet staple.  Norway is the top shark-food producer. Their market expands  each year in Europe. Californians, loo, arc picking up on the  shark as food. The Russians and Ihe Japanese already appreciate  shark meal.  The book informs readers that 32 percent of a shark serving is  protein, while carbohydrates arc found only as a trace,and fat is  non-existent. The latter is stored only in the liver. However  nutritionally sound, shark must be carefully handled and  prepared. Freshly caught, it should be skinned, gutted and cooked  within twenty-four hours. If bought in a markel, il should be  odorless and when Ihe flesh is depressed, it should spring back.  Fresh shark is best soaked in milk or a brine solution to remove  ammonia. Because there are no bones, cuts arc easy.  The recipes, not in metric, sound delicious, but it will take taste  tesls for most of us spoiled by salmon and delicate bottom fish to  try it. At any rale ihe book is thought-provoking for theconserver  gourmand.  Women's Program film  For ten days, between  November 24th and December  4th, 1980, B.C. Native artists  and craftsmen will be exhibiting their work in the  Robson Square Media Centre.

Included in the event will be  collections of rare art and  artifacts assembled from the  Kwakiutl and Centennial Museums. Private collections,  of objects rarely seen in the  Lower Mainland will also be  on display.  From Ottawa, the Department of Indian Affairs is  sending its newly completed  exhibit, Traditions and  Change to the show. This  exhibit features the work of  aspiring young native artists  from across Canada, as well as  that ofthe giants of Indian art,  Bill Reid, Norval Morrisseau,  Daphne Odjig, Alex Janvier  and Allen Sapp, Traditions  and Change is complemented  by two video-tape machines  which run continuous programs on art and programs.  Accompanying the Ottawa  exhibit will be a collection of  films on Indian art and life,  specially gathered for this  show. These films will be  running continuously in the  Media Centre Cinema and are  free to the public. Bill Reid's  Legends of the Salmon People  is one of 21 films to be shown.  the B.C. Native Arts and  Values Exhibition will feature  the performing arts as well.  In addition to short noontime  dances, there will be a Native  Indian Dance Festival in the  evenings at the Media Centre  Cinema, admission $1.50.  Tickets are available at Wilp's  Tsak Gallery, 3626 West 4th  Avenue and Heritage House  Gallery, Royal Centre. By  presenting these ancient and  sacred dances in a theatre  setting, it is hoped that  their special impact on an  audience can be ensured.  For example, the 'Ksan will  be presenting "The Breath of  our Grandfathers". Performed in Edmonton this August,  the Edmonton Journal commented "it takes a rare group  of people to share like that  and what the 'Ksan shared  was incomparable. The costumes were breathtaking, the  dances rousing, and the songs  and music intriguing".  The 'Ksan will also be providing a special display of  native food, to complement  their   new   book   Gathering  Thursday November 13th  7:30 p.m. Next in the series,  of interest to both men and  women, is the N.F.B. documentary No Life for a Woman  which is a half hour film about  the lives of women in single  industry resource towns.  The companies who plan  and build these "instant"  towns, generally prefer to hire  married men, yet they do little  to provide for the families  of these men. The human toll  is great.  No Life for a Woman is a  portrait of the kind of life  most women live in these  outlying towns.  This film documents the  importance of taking into  account the needs and perspectives of the women who  take care of the home life  in these communities, when  planning them,  A variety of women talk of  their hopes and of the daily  fight against the atmosphere  which threatens to engulf  them: boredom and depression. They deal with this in  ways that suit their temperament - with humour - with  anger and with near despair.  They have organized a  weekly drop-in so that women  may meet one another, a  daycare centre for children  and a women's centre, help  them to deal with mutual and  individual problems.  By their actions women are  pin-pointing    the    problems  they all suffer from and  they are offering solutions  which are relevant to all  other women living in isolated  towns - indeed to women  anywhere.  After the film there will be  discussion. Men are encouraged to attend.  No Life for a Woman  will be shown Thursday,  November 13th, 7:30 p.m.  Roberts Creek Elementary  School Library.

Plans are now in place for  the annual Christmas parties  at Welcome Beach Community Hall sponsored by the  Welcome Beach Community  Association. As in previous  years there will be two evenings in order that everyone  can attend, Friday, December  12 is family night for those  who do not care to dance  to the music of Paul Hansen.  Both evenings will start with  Happy Hour from six till  seven, dinner being served  at seven. Price is seven dollars  per ticket. These may be  obtained by calling either of  the following numbers: Grace  Rutherford at 885-9672, Connie Hobbs at 885-5071, Eileen  Hansen at 885-2951 or yours  truly at 885-2418. Members  should order their tickets  before November 28th, as  after that date the tickets  will be sold to non-members  who wish to attend. The  deadline for ticket sales will  be December 5, so it would be  a good idea to get your orders  in early for one of these  evenings of good fellowship  and fun.  There will also be a party  in the Hall at New Year  which will start at around  9 p.m. Cover charge for this is  only two dollars and this is  a great place to bring in the  New Year. More on this  later.  At a recent meeting of the  Board of the Welcome Beach  Community Ass'n. it was  decided that Life Memberships to the Association be  presented to a couple who  have contributed much time  and energy throughout the  past years for the benefit  of the community. Keith and  Olive Comyn were really  delighted to receive this  recognition. There was also a  special word of praise for  Flo Hill who had so efficiently  organized the Oktoberfest and  is at the present time deeply  involved in the arrangements  for the Bingo Night which will  be on November 14. Hope to  see a full house for this one.  Price is one dollar a card and  there will be coffee and  goodies to follow. Film night  this month will be November  27 at 7:30 and will be about  the Orient - Japan and India.  Friends In hospital.

It was good to see that  BCTV has taken up our  cause in the struggle for the  retention of our precious  rights to public use of beach  areas. Just goes to show that  if enough of us get off our  butts and protest the handing  over of these areas to private  individuals we may get something done about it. It's not  too late to save things, but it  does make you think when you  listen to an interview with our  Minister of Parks and Housing  and hear him state that he  "doesn't know anything about  it". Who in the heck does  then?  A good friend passes.  We were all saddened at the  death on November 5th of  Alice Burdett of Redrooffs  Road. Alice had been a hard  working and much loved  member of our Halfmoon Bay  Hospital Auxiliary since she  moved here about ten years  ago, and she will be sorely  missed. She is survived by  one son in Vancouver and a  daughter, Eunice Keeler of  Welcome Woods, as well as  five grandchildren. There will  be a memorial service at the  Devlin Funeral Home in  Gibsons on Wednesday, November 12 at 3:30 p.m. Our  deepest sympathy is extended  to the family.  A great big thank you.  The members of the Halfmoon Bay Hospital Auxiliary  would like to extend a great  big thank you to the many  people who supported their  November Bazaar despite the  terrible weather, with a  special word of appreciation to  those of you who are not  members of our auxiliary but  who brought along contributions. It was just great, so  thanks again.  Local  weather  What a soaker I In this wet  week we've already had more  rain, 10.27 cm, than the total  for October and exceeded last  November's total rainfall.  Tuesday, however, was  notable in reaching a record  temperature for November of  18C, beating the previous  November record of 17 also  recorded on November 4 in  1975.  ������>  |fc^:  %$&&&.   71  _����������  .if'   ,  .   .---'-'   "T^--"'  ___^^_i_U  ft"'  jl:  *&���_   ...

Evening sports at the hall  by Paulette Collins  The regular monthly meeting of the Port Mellon Community Association was held  on November 3. At a meeting  held shortly before the regular  meeting, between executive  members and the teens, the  teens decided on what they  would like for their drop-in  centre. The ideas they presented were very well received; no big problems.  We hope that this will encourage them to get better  and more frequent use of the  hall.  A discussion was held about  the library board and seven  persons volunteered their time  with Kay Belanger staying on  from last year. They agreed  to meet the next morning to  decide upon office positions.  This week we hope to get  every one involved with  evening sports. Monday evening at 8 p.m. will be volleyball.  Tuesday evening from 6 p.m. -  7 p.m. will be organized  games for children aged 5 to  12. Then the teens will  have their time. On Wednesday evening at 8 p.m. will be  floor hockey. If there are any  other indoor sports anyone  would like to have or to  organize, please call the  Sports Director, Bill Ahrens.  We briefly discussed the  annual children's Christmas  party. The only decision made  at this time was the date  of December 14. If you have  any ideas on this project,  please phone one ofthe executive or bring them with you to  the next regular monthly  meeting to be held on December 1.  The draw for prizes from the  teens' raffle will be held on  December 1 at the regular  monthly meeting of the  Community Association.  At the meeting held on  November 4 the library board  decided upon these officers.  Paulette Collins - chairperson;  Penny Whiting - secretary;  Diane Winn - treasurer.  Other members of the library  board are Gil Prentiss, Kay  Belanger, Barb Linciz and  Inge Hanson. We hope to  be purchasing new books very  soon. The library is open  each Thursday from 3 p.m. 'til  5 p.m. for the children. A  story time will be from 3:30  p.m. - 4 p.m. It is very important that children be read  to so that their own reading  will improve. We hope that all  the kids will attend as it  should be fun.  We will open the library this  week on sports nights to see  if we can get time preferences  Ejimonl !\ews  for the adults. If you have any  special book or books written  by a particular author we will  keep this in mind when we  order our new supply this  month.

This is a  really neat organisation which  the town has boasted for about  three years. The society's  logo is "If you live in Egmont,  you are automatically a  member unless you choose  otherwise."  Through this organization  you, the taxpayers and members of the community, have  access to the school and its  facilities in the evenings and  on weekends whether you  have kids in school or not.  Some of the activities the  elders and teenagers have  enjoyed have included movies,  closed video tape sessions  (we are just finishing a  complete snowing of Shogun  sans commercials) and a very  successful and long-standing  Monday night batik session,  often referred to as "Ladies  night out in Egmont".  Wednesday's meeting covered a number of topics  beginning with the forming  of a playground and equipment committee which will try  to build something more  modern, "adventure playground" type of stuff, the  likes of which can be seen in  Davis Bay. Field trips for the  school children were discussed, gravel pits and salmon  enhancement. The school just  visited Mr. Jenkinson in  Saltery Bay, the public proprietor of a dog salmon  ranch. Trips to the Planetarium and booming grounds  were also discussed. Locally,  perhaps Goliath Bay and  Argus could provide guided  tours for the kids.  Crafts people, tradesmen  and artists were considered  for possible resource people to  give demonstrations at the  school. We have access to  a complete darkroom and in all  probability will form a photography club. Allah was praised for the existence of Karin  Hoemburg who will help us  in any way in the Continuing  Education Department.  First aid courses have been  considered for years; we now  have two highly qualified first  aid men, Ian Vaughn and John  Seabrook. Last year the  Komuri family donated $300  to the community club following an extensive search for  Fuzzy Komuri who drowned  in the Skookumchuk. It was  suggested by Iris and Ian  that this money be used to  purchase a hypothermia re-  suscitator which is the safest  way to treat a person suffering  from hypothermia.  Special thanks to superintendent John Denley for  helping out the school society  and his continued support.  Today celebrates the launching of the Free Spirit,  Edie Graydon's new house  boat.

Coast News, November 117 1980  Kohcrts (reel  BLEVE film on November 19  by Jemle Norton 886-9609  "If circumstances permit,  Do  Not  Fight  The   Fin."  That is the advice in the case  of a propane tank fire given by  "BLEVE", a series of slides  accompanying a manual on  firefighting techniques published as a result of an incident at Kingman, Arizona,  in 1973.  A faulty valve on a 20,000  gallon tank car being unloaded  at a tank farm needed only a  blow from an aluminum  wrench to spark a fire that was  out of control by the time  firemen could get there. The  heat weakened the metal of  the tank, rupturing it and  allowing the liquid gas to  escape as vapour, which  mixed with the air and ignited  into a fireball that engulfed  the tank and surrounding  area. (That's called a BLEVE -  boiling liquid and expanding  vapour explosion).  The manual advises allowing a 3000 foot hazard  area around the burning tank  and the use of unmanned  equipment. The strategy is  to let the propane burn and  concentrate on keeping the  metal cool. The material  also advises approach from  the sides of the container.  One end of the Kingman tank  was propelled 1200 feet by the  explosion.  But that's not feasible in  the case of the propane tanks  on the Roberts Creek wharf.  There's no access to sides  except from the water. A  sprinkler system along the  sides of the tanks would be  in order but that would be as  expensive as relocating the  tanks.  Which is what the "Concerned Citizens of Roberts  Creek" want - the removal of  the tanks from the mouth of,  the Creek. They consider the  tanks a hazard and an eyesore,  interfering with public use of  the wharf.  The recently adopted Roberts Creek Settlement Plan  says that Canadian Propane's  lease should not be renewed.  Roberts Creekers want to  make sure that those guidelines are adhered to as the  lease is negotiated with a  j government body other than  the local Regional Board.  They're met with the  argument that the Roberts  Creek wharf is the best place  for the tanks. That's where  there's the least risk. But why  should there be any risk at  all? There are lots of places on  the Coast away from habitation but with both water  and land access. Or they could  be put in an industrial area  with proper precautions and  surveillance.  The petitions for the removal of the tanks are receiving a good response but  many more signatures are  needed to emphasize the  strong feeling about the issue.  Copies are available at the  Store and Post Office if you  haven't already signed.  And if you're still unconvinced or want more  information, come to the Community Association meeting  next Wednesday, November  19, at the Community Hall.  The film "BLEVE" will be  shown and it should prove a  dramatic demonstration of the  potential hazard in the middle  of our community.  Bottle drive.  Don't forget to have your  bottles ready on Saturday  when the Roberts Creek  Elementary sports club comes  to pick them up. They'll be  driving around from about  10:30 until 1:30. If you won't  be home you can drop them  off at the School on Friday  or call 886-8548 for pick up.  Legion Bazaar.

On Saturday, November 1,  18 runners went to the crosscountry races at Swanguard  Stadium. Sean Whelan came  3rd, Kelly Scott 5th, Sean  Longman and Christine Koop  8th, and Mark Vrezyl 9th.  The Boys soccer team'  played well when they hosted  the Burdett team from North  Vancouver but the visitors  made better use of their  scoring opportunities and left  with a 5 to 3 victory. The girl's  soccer team served a nice  lunch after the game.  In other soccer games, the  Boys beat Sechelt at Roberts  Creek 5-0, Langdale at Roberts Creek 7-0 and Langdale  at Langdale 7-0. Sean Whelan  scored 3 goals in the last  game.  The Girls tied Langdale  1-1 and the Tiger Tots beat  Davis Bay 3-1. A 2-0 game  against Cedar Grove had to  be terminated because of  adult interference.  Tyler Pearl covered himself  in mud and glory playing for  the Tiger Tots in the tournament in Gibsons last week.  Roberts Creek won two of four  games and all the players  deserve commendation for  sticking it out in the mud  bath.  And eighty athletes were  treated to an excellent lunch  in the library by their moms  last Tuesday.  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 'ctcrs discovers  Kleindale cemetery.

One such occurrence happened about two years ago.  Out ofthe blue, a government  man came to my house and  informed me I was the owner  of the Kleindale Cemetery.  You can imagine my surprise!  I knew we had a cemetery  next to the property owned  by my husband and myself.  We were under the assumption it was being cared for by  a society. It had been donated  by the previous owner of the  Yinler Harbour news  Casino Night at the Harbour  by Doris Edwardson  Casino night.

During the year  money raised from the different activities was returned  to the Community in many  different ways. A few of the  donations that were made  during the year were as  follows:  Local Student Bursary $100.  Fire Department for Hallowe'en $100. C.A.R.E. $120.  Swimming Pool $500. Sea  Scouts $300. Aid to Local Fire  Victims $300. Community  Picnic $250. Pager for Ambulance Crew $285. These are  but a few of the donations  made by the Pender Harbour  Lions Club, along with $3000  invested in the Community  Park. The Lions also received  a Summer employment grant  of about $10,000 which provided employment in the park  for students in the summer  season. With an increasing  membership, it is hoped that  the fiscal year 1980-81 will be  even more successful and that  increased contributions can be  made to the community.

My immediate reaction was  not good, in fact I was downright hysterical I I mean, who  needs a cemetery to take care  of. Why couldn't they force  me to take over an oil well  in Texas, or even a salt mine  in Siberia? I would at least  have some exciting conversation once in a while.  Who wants to bring up the  subject of graveyards during  social engagements? Casually  mentioning how many burials  happened last month, My  sense of humour would be  seriously questioned.  My talks with the government in Victoria brought no  results, I was stuck with  it. So a few weeks ago, I was  very pleased to hear the  S.C.R. District are going to  take care of it. The graveyard  at present is full and will be  closed to future burials.  Access is and always will be  available through the usual  road.  According to the Cemeteries Division in Victoria,  there are very few private  graveyards left in B.C. Ours  happened to be one of them,  My thanks go to Joe Harrison  for helping solve the situation.  Pender Harbour Lions Club  Casino Night  Saturday Nouember 15th  7:30 pm.

Some of the items are well below cost, therefore will be  strictly limited. We would ask our customers to please respect  the "limit" signs.  As we look back over those ten years it is with the  realization that time is fleeting. Where have the years gone?  And yet in those 10 years much has happened, not only in the  growth and development of family and our business, but in  the whole community.  When Joyce and I cam here with Julia and Graham, Julia  was still in High School, and Graham had just graduated the  previous school year. Now both are adults, with families of  their own and making an important contribution.  Graham soon became Produce Manager with a high degree  of success, as is generally known. His aim is always to find  ways by which he can sell for less, but above all to have a  superior quality product. I've heard him tell his staff, "If you  wouldn't buy it yourself, don't have it out there!"  Liz, much like her mother for determination and hard work,  and also a Scorpio, has assumed the important role ot  Grocery Management, as well as an overall supervisory role. I  leave all the hiring of staff to her and so she must get the credit  for the nice, considerate and helpful staff in our store. We  believe firmly in the principle that if people are well treated  they respond in kind to others.  - K  Keith has tit into various roles in our operation, having  gained experience in all departments, and now is taking a  meat cutting course. As Mr. Fixit, he looks after many of the  maintenance and technical aspects of our operation���  although I should add that Graham does, too.  There is little, if anything, that the larger supermarkets can  outdo us on, and that includes price! It is indeed the many  extra features and services that we inject into our operation  that makes our store so popular. Those who are attracted to  large markets for bigness sake will miss this difference which  includes a genuine warmth and appreciation shown by all to  our customers.  How long we can sustain this type of endeavour, one which  has given us a strong bond of family relationship and  experience���is, of course, unknown. So far, at least, we've  kept pace with change, and presented the public with an  excellent marketplace.  But it hasn't been without sacrifice. Every dollar earned  over the past 10 years has gone back into the business, so the  growth has been at the expense of personal and family  income. I say this so that people will come to realize ever more  that the private businessman, in the retail trade particularly,  suffers as much as anyone from the inroads of inflation.  It has, at any rate, been of great satisfaction to us to see how  we have grown as people, and as a business along with'the  community in which we live.

His reply. "Man if you gotta  ask you'll never git to know"  might be a facetious response  to a Minister of Education who  travels Ihe province asking  what people want of education.  Most ol us would like our  children lo acquire some  obvious and traditional skills,  such as the ability to read well  and to do arithmetic computations accurately. We want our  children to learn how and  where to find needed information. We want our children  io be able to study lor mastery  and lo be able to write tests and  examinations without trauma.  We want our children to learn  how to fill out forms and make  applications. We want our  children to learn to communicate effectively in conversation,  in willing, and through the  various media available to  them. Wc would like them to be  able to do this in several  languages, nol thc least of  which would be English and  French.  Then we would like the  school to present a vital health  program to our children. Wc  would like them to know the  parts and function of the  human body, including reproduction, nutrition, growth,  genetics, aging, the various ills  that beset the human frame,  and what science can do and  cannot yet do to help us live in  glowing good health. By the  end of junior high, we would  like every hoy and girl to have  both knowledge concerning  and experience in caring for  pre-school children. Society  should demand day-care centres attached to the junior high  schools, and the assignment of  student helpers under expert  supervision.  Early on. before the age of  drop-out. wc would like our  children to learn all they can  about the world of work, the  plus and minus of labour  organization, various ways of  handling worker-management  relations, the importance of  workers' compensation, accident insurance, life insurance,  pensions, and minimum wage  legislation. Secondary students, who are notoriously  casual about school attendance, must be convinced that  absenteeism on the job is not  tolerated. In addition to job  survival of a very general  nature, every adolescent needs  to learn the use of leisure lime,  that mixed blessing that has  been handed to mankind by  machines and technology.  Ihere is life beyond the telc-  \ isiiin screen, and little in front  ol il.  Wc would like our older  children to gain a world  perspective, to help them  grapple with the problems of  trade, war and peace, and whal  is meant by the "emerging  nations", Some stark facts  might generate thought about  thc space ship earth and our  place mi it.

In contrast, USSR  uses 3957, China 726,and India  176. Our children do not know  very much about thc world at  all.  But other nations know  about us. our rich natural  resources, our potential for  development. What are the  older children learning about  the ownership of these natural  resources wc so glibly call  "ours"'.' Arc they being made  aware of the vast range of jobs,  ranging from labouring to  directing, in mining, forestry,  fishing, agriculture, entertainment, tourism, public service,  fine arts?  Our schools arc still organized around the old disciplines  which have been around for a  long time. Language arts, the  "new" mathematics, social  studies and science courses  have been written and rewritten, revised to the point where  the total fare being fed to our  B.C. school children is the most  horrendous mish-mash of trivia ever devised by a civilized  people to equip its youth to  take their places in the world of  tomorrow.  Our secondary schools still  operate on the principle that  prestigious academic work  must be presented to every  pupil in order that everyone has  had the opportunity to try to  make university. In missionary  zeal they exhort and expound,  letting drop those pupils who  cannot "hack it", and arranging  for inferior intellects inferior  graduation programs, leaving  further training to some benevolent employer if and when a  job comes up. The desperately  low self-esteem of those labelled non-academic is ihe burden  laid on them by our strange  system.  Every secondary school  produces annually a small  number of graduates who are  serious minded, skilled, willing  to learn, eager and anxious to  take their places in society.  Statistics prove that the best  predicator of schol success is  the student's home, actually,  his father's education. Under  these circumstances secondary  schools cannot really take  credit for their top scholars,  some of whom may be successful in spite of their school.  The Minister of Education  found some discontent in thc  north and central parts of the  province. What might the  message be from the Sunshine  Coast'.'  Bob Finn from the apprenticeship section of the Ministry of Labour addresses students at  Elphinstone High School.  The Education Side-show  by Don Lockstead  Students visit  Mt. St. Helens  by Jull MacFarlane  and Lori Jovlck  "Well, where is it?" Someone questioned from behind  us. Mt. St. Helens rested  quietly ahead of us within  the grey raining clouds.  We couldn't see the mountain  which we travelled miles to  see, but we studied materials  that made our trip to Mt. St.  Helens in Washington worth  our while.  We caught the first ferry  in the morning on September  21, 1980. As tired as we were  (from it being a Saturday  morning) we were all quite  excited. We met a bus load of  students at Capilano College  in Vancouver and soon we  were on the main freeway to  the United States.  Our first stop, besides  our stops to garages and  restaurants, was where we  saw films and pictures of  Mt. St. Helens during its  eruptions. We saw samples of  her ash which she spread  miles across Washington and  reaching other states. After  our visit we all climbed back in  our 20-seater school bus  and headed for the campground. Before we crashed out  we stayed up for a while  standing by the campfire  with a friendly drink (of  Pepsi).  Mr. Hethey, our geography  teacher, pulled out our tent  pegs to get us up at 7:00 a.m.  to go up the road to the  mountain. On our way up the  mountain we stopped at  Toddle River to see just how  much it had been destroyed.  The river, in width, was cut  in half by the mud flow.  Trees on the bank showed  mud marks and told us how  high the mud reached. The  sides of the road were piled  with mud about ten feet  high. But the most interesting  sights on the trip were the  few unfortunate homes that  were mainly covered with  mud. Houses were crushed  and others were buried by the'  liquid mud that travelled down  the mountain from the eruption.  Bridges and a logging camp  were totally destroyed by  the mountain's actions. When  we reached the red zone area  and after we had taken pictures and filmed the sites, we  headed back home.  Conscious of the government's poor reputation in  relation to the delivery of all  services to people, the education minister is trying to  improve his public relations  image.  Most British Columbians  have seen large newspaper  ads advertising Education  Minister Brian Smith's travelling road show. Judging by  the response, British Columbians indeed have concerns  about the quality of education  in the province.  For the lack of any other  meaningful input into the process, British Columbians have  turned out in large numbers  hoping to influence the course  of education policy.  It is a pity that things have  gotten to a state where  appearing at a mass gathering  in front of the minister is the  only way to influence the  quality of education in our  schools. Our school system is  set up in such a way that local  school boards, reflecting the  needs and aspirations of individual communities, would  provide community guidance  over the schools. Unfortunately, things have not  worked out this way.  School boards, like other  authorities, have been drafted  against their will by the Social  Credit government in its  efforts to redirect provincial  government finances away  from prividing services to  people. The school boards  have become involuntary soldiers in the battle of the  Social Credit government to  retain more of the taxpayers'  money in Victoria.  In recent years local school  boards have found less and  less flexibility within their  budgets   to   offer   enriched  THE FIRE PLACE  WOOD HEATING CENTRE!

They have been forced into  increasingly tough negotiations with their staff, in order  to meet provincial government  guidelines.  The needs of handicapped  children and particularly gifted children have gone largely  unmet. The ministry of human  resources has provided little  in the way of back-up services.  That is why so many  British Columbians find there  is no alternative but to go  cap in hand to the minister  at a mass public meeting in  order to voice their concerns.  Meanwhile, the minister's  travels have not been without  their difficulties.  In Kelowna, the minister  was scheduled to address a  meeting of grade 12 students  of the Springvalley Secondary  School. When a Springvalley  staff member picked up the  minister an hour before his  12:30 p.m. engagement, the  minister's only question was,  "What's for lunch?"  The embarrassed staff  member knew nothing about  lunch and advised the minister  of his 12:30 p.m. appointment.  When the minister arrived  at the school, he checked  the school cafeteria, which  was vacant at the time, and  stalked out of the school  offering no explanation to the  students or to the staff.  He then went to a local  restaurant.  Needless to say, Springvalley students and staff  were surprised by the minister's behaviour.  During the recent cabinet  tour of northern British  Columbia, the Social Credit  entourage arrived in Vanderhoof at the CN railway station.  Education    Minister    Brian  Smith immediately declared a  holiday for the crowd of about  300 school children gathered  on the platform. Mr. Smith  announced that school children who turn out on other  stops on the B.C. cabinet tour  will probably also receive a  holiday.  The fact that schools should  be interrupted to celebrate  the arrival of Mr. Smith and  his cabinet colleagues says  more about their political  priorities than their commitment to education.  The fact that Mr. Smith  would undertake a public  relations tour rather than deal  with the real problems in his  ministry says as much as need  be said about his approach  to the portfolio.  ��  SUNSHINE  KITCHENS  FINE CABINETS  886-9411 Gibsons  CARPET, TILE & SHEET VINYL  Box 1092 Sechelt, B.C.

Prices expire Nov. 15. 1980  Sunnycrest Mall  886-8010 12  Coast News, November 11, 1980  Watching the weather  Maryanne's  viewpoint  by Maryanne Wesl  On October 1st the Gower  Point weather station entered  its twentieth year of keeping  daily records.  Having grown up in Port  Mellon it wasn't surprising  that the children took an active  interest in the weather, in  particular rainfall. Port Mel-  Ion's annual precipitation is  double that of Gibsons.  When Fran was in Grade 6  she wrote the Department of  Transport under whose wing  neather records were then  kept, asking if she could be a  weather recorder. There was  already a weather station in  Gibsons kept by Dick Kennett  who lived on Nrth Road and it  wasn't department policy to  allow two stations so close  together. But bureaucracy was  perhaps more flexible in those  days and an exception was  made to encourage the interests of an 11-year-old.  Fran was given a rain gauge  and an official record book.  She checked the rain gauge  twice every day at 8 a.m. and  6 p.m. keeping the record in  duplicate and sending one  c-opy to the Department on the  first day of each month.  In the fall of 1963 younger  sister Christa took over the  records when Fran went away  to school and I took over from  her in 1968. We still keep  twice daily records, which are  sent monthly to the Department of the Environment  and because forecasting has  more sophisticated equipment  out totals are needed more  quickly than the mail can get  them there - so we phone them  in immediately after the  month ends at 8:00 a.m. oil  the first.  In the summer of 1964 we  bought a maximum and  minimum thermometer for our  own interest as the Department wouldn't stretch to more  than a rain gauge for a subsidiary station.  Although the two stations  were little more than two  miles apart, the recorded  temperatures and rainfall  were distinctly different, due  to differences in altitude and  exposure. Our rainfall was  usually less and, sheltered  from the north and east  with a southerly exposure,  temperatures were usually  higher, especially overnight  lows, except when there was  a brisk westerly wind blowing.  In January 1971 after Dick  Kennett left Gibsons his  official status and thermometers were transferred to us  and in September 1978 we got  our metric equipment.  Records of this sort become  more interesting as the years  go by and you can begin to  recognize emerging patterns.  The annual rainfall in this  area has wide variations  ranging from the driest year  of 1970 with 40 inches (let's go  back to inches for comparisons, they're easier to deal  with than thousands of millimetres!) to the wettest year of  l%8 with 66'/i inches. The  average runs around 53  inches.  Up to a couple of years ago  it did seem as though some  pattern was discernable, over-  average years were followed  by an under-average one and  those   very  dry  years  by  a  very wet one. The sort of  adjustment one would expect  from Nature. Between 1962  and 1975 there were six years  with less than average rainfall, only three of those with  less than 50 inches. But in the  last four years the weather  patterns have changed, with  the four consecutive years  failing to reach even 50  inches, leaving us some 22  inches short of even the  average. An unprecedented  situation in the previous 14  years.  Maybe we're in for a series  of wetter than average years  to make up or if the present  trend of four inches per week  keeps up, maybe we're going  to catch up before the end of  this year! To date, the November record stands at  almost 11 inches in 1975, with  just two other years reaching  over 10 inches. Seven inches  is the average for the month.  December, however, is the  wettest month usually with  1972 holding the record for  any month, almost 13 inches.  That, you will remember,  was the year we nearly  washed out at Christmas,  receiving four inches in 36  hours. In an area where the  population depends upon the  water supply, the annual precipitation and the level of the  water table, which also depends on the annual snowfall  on the mountains which acts  as a reservoir and has also  been considerably less in  recent years, are very important matters.  So at least we should  welcome, even though we  don't hope for, a wet winter  which will put the record  straight and put us back in  the black on our rainfall  account.  Canada must  develop economy  MP  by Kay Skelly  Comox-Powell River  In thc sixties and seventies  there was an outcry against the  increasing foreign control of  the Canadian economy. The  Watkins Report of I96S and  the Gray Report of 1972  documented how control of  our economy was falling further into foreign hands. In  response, the federal government passed the Foreign Investment Review Act (F1RA)  and began reviewing any  foreign purchases of Canadian  businesses.  Nearly a decade later it is  clearly necessary to strengthen  FIR A which is far from  adequate as almost every  takeover bid is approved.  Petrocan, the Saskatchewan  government's control of potash, and the former B.C.  government purchase of Canadian Cellulose are examples  of good economic ventures  where the control remains in or  returns to Canadian hands.  Canadian investment abroad  has not received the attention  that foreign takeovers have.  The figures are startling: in  1971 Canadian investment  abroad was S6.5 billion: in 1978  the figure had climbed to SI4  billion. No one knows whether  this outflow of Candian dollars  has helped Canada. In some  eases, companies will argue  that they have been able to  expand as a result of investing  outside Canada, but it has also  been pointed out that Canadians lose out in jobs and in  development.  In orderto bring some public  debate on this issue and to get  the government to see how this  kind of investment helps Canada. New Democrat Jim  Fulton has introduced a bill in  Parliament on the exportation  of Canadian capital funds. Thc  bill could amend existing  I IRA legislation and set up a  procedure whereby Canadian  capital investments outside of  Canada would be reviewed to  see il they are of benefit to  Canada.  Each request over a given  amount, sav $500,000 would be  lev ievved tn sec what affects the  outflow ol Canadian money  would have on the economy. A  review would look at jobs  created as opposed to those  lost, as well as expansion and  technological development  that should have taken place in  Canada. This review process  should not be difficult. In 1974.  two-thirds of outgoing investment was done by 16 corporations.  Canada must develop its  own economy. Many countries  smaller than ours have strong  internal economies. In many  ways Canada still has an  immature economy. We should  use our resources to put it in a  strong domestic position before sending our money elsewhere.

At the Arts Centre  Zapotec and Mayan weaving  from Mexico and Guatemala  The upcoming exhibit at  the Sunshine Coast Arts  Centre in Sechelt, November  18 - November 28, is one not  to be missed. Titled Zapotec  and Mayan Weaving - A  Collection from Mexico and  Guatemala, this dazzling display will give further evidence  of the Arts Centre's continuing efforts to provide the  Sunshine Coast with a wide  variety of interesting and  informative exhibits pertaining to the arts, both here and  abroad.  The main body of the show  takes us into the magical  world of weaving and embroidery from the states of  Oaxaca,   Chiapas   and   the  Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico,  and the mountain country  of north-west Guatemala.  Items on show will include  blankets, rugs, shawls, hammocks, huipils (women's  blouses), men's shirts, ponchos, belts, string bags and  expanding the common notion  of weaving there will also be a  variety of woven baskets.  Collectors ofthe pieces have  noted how different areas and  villages have their own characteristic patterns and designs. Supplementing the  show will be ceramic figures,  photographs, drawings and  maps, all dealing with the  same geographical areas and  cultures.    Brilliant    colours,  ancient motifs and the impact  of a Mexican marketplace  will give yet another dimension to the Arts Centre and  cheer us up during what  can be a drab month outside.  It is significant and encouraging to note that this  show is being produced  locally, all of the items being  acquired by people from the  Sunshine Coast during their  one or more journeys to Mexico and Central America. This  and exhibits like Everywheres  of a month ago give a local  viewpoint taking inn a broad  range of subjects.  Thanks must go to King  Anderson and Bronia Robins  for the concept and organi  zation of the exhibit and  thanks also to the contributors  Samuel Dill, Vicki Dobbyn,  Peter and Sandy Quinn,  Louise Roper and Lief Peder-  sen. Opening night is Monday  October 17, 8:00 - 10:00 p.m.  and everyone is welcome.  Complementing this exhibition will be a special event on  Saturday November 22, Mexico Night. Participants will  bring a Mexican meal for a pot  luck dinner at 7:30 p.m. Later  there will be a slide show of  Mexico and Guatemala. Admission for the evening is  $1.00.

I he major difficulty with a  faith in the supernatural is that  n can. and frequently does,  appear to the observer to be a  blind and desperate action on  ihe pan of ihe believer.  I hose who regard faith in  ihis light find it difficult, it nol  impossible, io entertain a  siiong and self-fulfilling faith  which leeds. nurtures, ami  satisfies the intellect.  For this reason, main find it  difficult to embrace faith as a  property ol their Iocs unless  I hey have had some mining,  mystical experience first.  Main others, however, embrace their faith first, and then.  as they mature in faith, they  begin lo perceive proofs of the  validity oi ihe faith they  espouse.  I his is ihe kind of faith,  which, to quote Hebrews again,  gave the early believers in (iod  faith to conquer kingdoms,  enforce justice, receive promises, slop the mouths of lions,  quench raging Hies, escape the  edge of ihe sword, win strength  out of weakness, become  mighty in war. and put foreign  armies to flight (vss. 33,34).  Ii is also the kind of faith  which enabled Christians nl the  early church to suffer mocking  and scourging, chains and  imprisonment, stonings, beatings, unarmed combat against  lions or gladiators, the torture  of Ihe Inquisition, and martyrdom.  The men and women suffered all these atrocities without lear, many limes going in  their death singing hymns and  smiling with anticipation of  going in meet their Maker.  rheycontinued in iheir faith,  even though they did not see  their reward on this earth,  going In death wnh the promise  of faith as iheir sword and  buckler, never Filtering in their  faith to the end.  Unwavering faith of this  magnitude is not reserved for  thc Christian religion, either,  although il has been abundantly recorded in the Bible  and in other faith-histories of  the Judaeo-Christian faith.  Men and women from any  race, creed or colour who find  this enriching power in their  lives, find themselves living in  the "assurance of things hoped  for, the conviction of things not  seen," and growing in assurance and conviction daily.  And faith like this is not old-  fashioned, nor is it a prerogative of any group, society  or race!

He should know. In 1968. he  created the world-renowned  Club of Rome, bringing together I00 of the best brains in  the world to ponder its future.  Their computer projections of  population growth, energy  shortages, famines and  droughts were called pessimistic at the time, but in the  last decade have come repeatedly- and frighteningly ���  I rue.  Looking back at the 70's, thc  founder of the Club of Rome  challenges anyone to show any  major area of human affairs  where things arc going better  than they were ten years ago.  Looking ahead, he sees  increased problems. The  world's population will rise to  about 6.5 billion by thc end of  Ihe century, straining still  further the planet's declining  resources. The economy, generally, will decline. The risk of  nuclear war will increase, as  stockpiles grow and more  nations develop nuclear capabilities. And as forests are cut  down, oceans polluted, and  deserts expand, the earth's  ability to sustain life will he  reduced.  Little wonder the The Toronto Star noted: "The world  begins more and more to  resemble a ricocheting bullet  careening from disaster to  disaster..."   Another  analogy  seems equally apt. The world  resembles a drunk, hitting rock  bottom, staggering from one  booze fix to another, fixes that  provide temporary relief but  fail to improve anything.  Alcoholics Anonymous has  a remarkable record of enabling hopeless addicts to  remake their shattered lives.  One of their principles is that  no alcoholic can be helped until  they admit that things are out  of control, and until they learn  The two pictures above graphically shim thc change that can come over a stream during this rainy  period.

Wc suspect that our world  I continue to ricochet along,  out of control, as long as  nations and leaders continue to  believe that they as humans are  still in command.

While my attempts  at an alternate life style have  been gratifying, not all my  endeavours have been successful, at least on the firsl try. If 1  was a vegetarian my problems  would be almost solved. Our  garden grows great varieties of  veggies and fruits, but I find  that 1 also like a little meal, fish  and in particular eggs once in a  while. I can still remember Ihe  thick steaks and the egg nogs  made with fresh eggs and whole  cream, of my youth. At lhal  time I thoughl we were poor  because while I suffered with  homemade bread and roast  beef sandwiches for school  lunches, my more sophisticated  mates from the town dined on  good old McGavin's cotton  with sandwich spread. I hid my  lunch away in shame for  months until I found someone  naive enough to trade and  allow me to be one of the  crowd. On our weekly night to  town I rushed to the New Look  Cafe and ordered canned  spaghetti on toast. It tasted like  ambrosia after being subjected  to all those healthy veggies and  juicy steaks.  My tastes have changed since  those misguided days. I now  appreciate the succulence of  home raised chickens and  fresh gathered eggs, although I  still haven't developed the taste  for steak.  The first winter on Ihe island  1 got busy and built a chicken  house. I won't go into the  mistakes I made in the construction but alter four winters  it still staunchly squats on the  point braving any Squamish  wind that threatens to blow it  over. Our island is lucky to be  devoid of rats, mice and  racoons, bul il is home for the  most fierce of chicken predators, the mink. 1 was warned  by the now late Mr. Corkum  that no matter how careful a  person was. someone would  eventually leave thc chicken  house door open and the mink  would finish off the brood.  Secure in my ability to close  a door I ordered six chickens  that arrived in April. By July  thc eggs were prolific and we  were enjoying omleltes of every  variety. One weekend some  friends brought out to ihe  island the original mean little  kid for a visit. 1 showed him thc  chickens and stressed the fact  that we must always lock the  door or the mean old mink  would cal thc nice chickens. I  should have noticed the gleam  in his eye, for the next morning  when I went to gather the eggs  there were only a few leathers  wafting out the open door.  After two more attempts at  the chicken business, I found a  lot of information pertaining In  the habits of minks. If they  can't gel the birds out of the  enclosure you find them all  piled near his escape hole wilh  their heads severed. Minks can  get through very small openings and even alter the chickens  are gone, will continue to  inspect the roost. Ihis can be  proved by the mink droppings  that you will find in thc spot  thai chickens were caught,  probably a measure the mink  uses to grow more dinner for  himself. He is strictly an  organic gardener.  On my fourth attempt to  raise chickens. 1 was really  prepared. We re-inforced the  chicken house inside and out  with wire mesh. I got a rooster  named. Precious who was the  meanest bird in town. He  attacked anyone and everything that gol into the pen  including mc. Then to top off  my protective measures I got a  dog. Not an ordinary dog. but a  pure bred German Shepherd  with papers to prove she was a  good guard dog. The chickens  and the island would all benefit  by her presence. The ferocious  guard dog swam away to Keats  to play with the kids in the park  every time we weren't looking.  One day when she had no one  to play with, she played with  the chickens. Trouble was. she  played a mile too rough and  they all had a lew places  missing and I was forced to  : finish them off on the chopping  block.  Phis year 1 am crossing my  lingers. Il's November and I've  gathered over .350 eggs at an  approximate cost of 65 cents a  dozen. The eggs arc so big they  don't lil ina normal egg carton.  Every night I personally put  every chicken in a mink-proof  cage lil morning. 1 will wait till  spring belore buying another  roosler. I his time I'm hoping  Im a more friendly one who  will just slick in entertaining  Ihe chickens.  Ihe mink is slill here subsisting on a diet of crabs and  oysters like he is meant to. li  has been suggested by some  thai we Irap the mink and  recover our losses by selling Ihe  fur. bin we rarely kill any  animal  we  won't eat.  I  read  somewhere that "If everyone  ate everything that they killed,  there would be an end to wars."  It's probably a true saying  except in New Guinea.  Does anyone have any good  recipes for coffee substitutes? 1  have cut the coffee habit and  while Poslumisagood replacement, I have heard stories that  it can be made easily from  grains. Please write to me in  care of this paper and I will try  them all and pass along the  successes to you. It's good to no  longer be at the mercy of the  coffee grower in Brazil or  wherever. I have tried herb teas  and enjoy them but its nice to  have something hearty in the  mornings.  Powersaw course  With the increasing prices  on fuels, more and more  families heat their houses with  wood. Continuing Education  has received numerous calls  from homeowners asking for a  course on power saw maintenance. "I just can't understand why it does not work  properly; it was expensive  enough", is a usual comment.  Marv Volen is an experienced operator of chain saws,  having worked many years as  a taller. He will introduce  participants to the noble art  of chain saw maintenance and  give hints on safe operation  procedures when it comes to  falling trees.  This short course will take  place on November 20 and 27,  Thursdays 7:00 to 9:30 p.m.  in the Elphinstone Autoshop.  The fee is $8.00 and pre-  registration is necessary as  the class if limited to IS  participants. Students are  advised to bring their own  chain saw if they possess one.  For registration please call  886-2495 in the evening or  Continuing Education 885-  3512.  by John Shaske BSc (Pharm)  Artists rrom all over the Sunshine Coast got together to trade  unused materials and pick up on the bargains at the Arts Centre's  Swap and Sell on Saturday.  Warts:a common  viral infection  Remember when you were  preparing for your first date  and noticed a little bump  developing on your hand?  You guessed it, a wart.  Warts are the most common  viral infection of the skin.  They are most common in  children and young adults  appearing on the exposed  areas of the fingers, hands,  face and soles of the feet.  They spread by contact.  Incubation is usually about 3-4  months. Continued irritation  hastens thc growth of the  wart.  Over half the cases of warts  will clear up without any  special treatment in two  years. However because of  cosmetic reasons most warts  are treated.  The most commonly used  products contain acid (sali-  cvlic, lactic) in a collodion  base. (Compound W�� or  Duoflim�� ). The collodion  traps moisture on the wart  allowing   for   greater   pene  tration of the acid. Caution  must be used as collodions are  extremely flammable.  An alternative product is  salicylic acid on a plaster.  The plaster is simply cut to  the shape of the wart and  applied to the affected area.  Before applying these products the affected area should  be soaked for five minutes  in hot water, then dried with a  clean towel. A thin layer of  vaseline should be placed  around the affected area to  protect the normal tissue  from being damaged by the  acid.  A physician should be  consulted if:  1) The person has peripheral  circulatory disease, or diabetes.  2) Bleeding from the wart.  3) Presence of infection  around the wart.  4) Warts in the perianal or  genital area.  5) Where self-treatment after  two weeks does not result  in improvement.

I trust you will  believe me, sir, when I say  that I do not so much find your  success discomforting for the  future of the world or your  own honoured notion, but only  that it left me with the uncomfortable opinion that I  have become so totally out of  touch with the rest of my  fellow men that I do not  personally know of any person  who would have considered  voting for you.  Again, I mean no disrespect  and only implore you to be  patient enough to pursue  my explanation of this apparently outrageous and discourteous remark. The source  of my ingenuous response to  your election lies not in your  character,   sir,   but   in   my  inability to understand the  forces which shaped your  success. This, as I am sure you  will understand, is more an  indictment of my political  sensitivity than of your leadership of what has become the  political mainstream.  How could I have been so  stupid as to not recognize  that your society (and mine)  has been hungering, and  indeed aching, for a simpler  view ofthe world? How could I  fail to see that your neighbours, and no doubt mine,  have moved on to a world of  basic, Christian dogma, to a  world of simple ethical standards, to a world of belief in  the values ofthe past, while I,  and the narrow band of  citizens with whom I surround  myself, have remained mired  and rooted in the values of  justice, love, hope, equality  and care?  I know the answer to these  questions. I have allowed  myself, consumed by the  confidence of the assumption  of righteousness, to ignore  the signs of discontent of  those who desire to move on to  the Utopia of fundamental  Christian faith, to opposing  abortions, to opposing equal  rights for women, to opposing  welfare and to ignoring the  frustrations of the dispossessed. My sadness and disappointment lies not in your  success sir, but in my inability  to see the handwriting on the  wall.  I do nol mean to detract  from the greatness of your  conquest    when    I    suggest  that the victory is not so much  yours as a victory for the  forces that made you what you  are and, even more distantly,  made them what they are.  I feel you will be a good  President. I do not believe in  the values you preach as I am  still saddled with the values of  liberal democracy, but I see  in you a healthy thing, a  re-evaluation of the role of the  President. I believe you have  arrived at where you are  by being willing to accept  advice, by being wise enough  to allow other, wiser, minds to  write your script (pardon the  allusion to the silver screen).  In this, perhaps we have hope  that you will be benign in  your new role.  Again, in all humility, 1  offer my most heartfelt congratulations.  Yours, etc.  **^HP '-i^-^^^'  Skelly on Constitution  fNot in bed with Liberals'  MP Ray Skelly of this riding was forthright in comments he  made to an NDP fund-raising dinner last week about thc  constitutional crisis in Canada and the attitude of the Liberal  government.  Denying forcefully that the 'NDP was in bed with the Liberals'  as had been maintained by some sections of thc national media.  Skelly categorized the present federal government as a 'terrible  government'.  "Their consciousness stops entirely in Central Canada. They  never get their minds out here at all," he said.  Marina funds  Gibsons council voted unanimously Tuesday night to advise  Mr. Parkinson of the Federal Department of Fisheries and  Oceans that council is prepared to raise thc required funds  associated with the Gibsons Marina project on confirmation of  having been included within the 1981-1982 Federal Budget.  Mayor Goddard made special mention of the motion which  arose from an October 13 meeting of the Finance Ccimmilte  chaired by Alderman Trainor.  We inadvertently misinformed our readers last  week when we wrote that the  vacancies on Gibsons council  were occasioned by the  retirement of Aldermen Metcalfe and Labonte.  While Alderman Stuart  Metcalfe is, in fact, retiring,  Larry Labonte will continue to  serve.

Gibsons. B.C.  688-681 fl 886-8141  Tracing thc constitutional crisis from its inception earlier this  year Skelly said that originally the group of premiers couldn't  agree on anything.  "Then when they became aware of the War Measures  philosophy of the Prime Minister they did reach a consensus on a  few items."  According to Skelly. this fragile consensus was'sandbagged' by  the Prime Minister's demand for centralized control of the  Canadian economy.  Skelly said that the NDP caucus had supported Trudeau's  proposal because 'the document had much of NDP policy'. Thc  MP said that when Trudeau agreed to the amendment which  called for decentralized control of resources he removed thc main  NDP objection.  'There are some other things we hope to have included at thc  Committee stage." said Skelly. "Principally we need some changes  which will take care of some of the needs and aspirations of native  people as well as some provision for an equality of women clause."  Skelly said that while the NDP had given qualified support to  Trudeau's repatriation proposals they were deeply concerned  aboul the use by the Liberals of public funds to manipulate the  media.  lie also expressed himself as being appalled by the 'cynical  liberal use of closure in the debate'. Skelly said the arbitrary  deadline imposed hy Prime Minister Trudeau made impossible  input from concerned groups throughout the country.  "There simply isn't time to get material together before  December 9," said Skelly.  Skelly pointed out that the Hank Act had been underdiscussion  for four and a half years which indicated how unreasonable was  Trudeau's haste on the constitution.  "Our optimism towards the document is waning," said the  Member of Parliament. "If Trudeau was willing to work in good  faith we were prepared to be optimistic but his high-handedness  has put Canada in the ludicrous position of asking Britain to  approve a document which has the support of only one federal  party and none of the provinces."  "We are not in bed with the Liberals," concluded Skelly. "We  arc totally opposed lo ihe Liberal use of closure and are generally  appalled hy the undemocratic actions of this government."

Four running in Trust election  Saturday November 25 is voting day for the election of two  Islands Trust representatives for Gambier, Keats, Anvil and  Thormanby Islands.  Four candidates, Edmunds (Ed) Drummond, Dorothy Ann  Rogers. Edward (Ted) Smyth, and Helen Negropontc are seeking  election to the two Trustee positions vacated by retiring Trustees  Elspeth Armstrong and Beverley Baxter.  Running mates Ed Drummond and Ann Rogers have stated  that they are committed to the objectives of the Islands Trust Act,  specifically the preservation and protection of the unique  amenities and environment ofthe islands. Both see the possibility  of an open pit copper-molybdenum mine on Gambier Island as  the single most important issue in this election.  Both Drummond and Rogers support the Islands Trust  position of unequivocal opposition to the establishment of an  open pit mine on Gambier Island and also to any exploration for  mineral deposits on all trust islands. Both were active last week  lobbying against the mine at the Social Credit Party Convention  held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Vancouver.  Both Drummond and Rogers are active members of thc  Community Association and both support the Community Plan  and the By-laws as approved by the islanders. Ed Drummond is a  summer resident of Gambier Island, has owned property in thc  Fircom area for 15 years, and is an active member and past-  president of the Gambier Island Property Owner's Association  (Fircom area). Drummond is also a Director of the Gambier  Island Preservation Society. Ann Rogers is a part-time resident of  Gambier Island where her family has owned property for 30 years.  Both state that they believe in seeking islanders opinions on issues  of concern to property owners, working with the islands'  community associations, and co-operating with the government  to provide convenient ferry service for the islanders.  Current trustees Elspeth Armstrong and Beverly Baxter have  indicated they support Ed Drummond and Ann Rogers as  candidates in this election.  Contesting the election is the team of Helen Negropontc and  Edward (Ted) Smyth. Helen Negropontc is a long time resident of  New Brighton on Gambier Island and has served a previous two  year term as Islands Trustee (1977-1978). Ted Smyth, a  descendant of the family who pioneered Gambier Harbour and  were instrumental in getting the first wharf there, is a spring and  summer resident of Gambier Harbour who winters on the  Sunshine Coast, having recently moved here from Victoria.  "We are aware of the local needs and issues of Gambier and are  sure this applies to Keats and the other islands as well," Smyth  says, "These islands, we feel, can he served by trustees who are on  thc spot."  Smyth does not agree that the possibility of an open pii mine of  Gambier is the single most important issue facing the islands.  "Due to the low grade of the ore samples, there may never be a  mine on Gambier Island," Smyth says, "I hope this is the case, as 1.-  am not altogether in favour of this proposed mine."  Smyth describes the question of the mine as "a blown up affair"  and says "I don't think it's the biggest problem."  Smyth says he foresees few problems for the islands as long as  there is no great influx of people moving on to them. Smyth and  Helen Negropontc promise to "strive to maintain the character of  the islands", "to preserve the environment yet endeavour to  provide the essentials for permanent residents, summer residents  and visitors" and both are "keenly interested in the future and  orderly development of the islands."  Polls will be open from 8 am. to 8 pm. on Saturday November  15, at thc Legion Hall. Gambier Harbour, on Gambier Island and  at Langdale Elementary School at Langdale. An Advance Poll  will be held on Thursday November 13, from 11 am. to 6 pm. at  Please turn to page 25  Fisheries and Oceans Minister Romeo LeBlanc has  announced a fisheries management package for the  west coast salmon resource  following meetings yesterday  with the Salmonid Enhancement Board and his Advisory  Committee on west coast  fisheries.  Mr. LeBlanc said that the  decisions were influenced by  the recent Pearse-Doueet  study, the Sol Sinclair study  on licensing, many representations from the Ashing  industry and extensive work  carried out by Pacific region  officials.  The Minister announced  that at the outset he wanted to  state his re-commitment to the  salmonid enhancement program and that he would be  requesting funding to proceed  with planning activity for the  next phase ofthe program.  "However, although the  salmonid enhancement program has contributed greatly  to the numbers of fish harvested in recent years, it alone  will not solve the difficulties  of the west coast salmon  industry," said Mr. LeBlanc.  Of primary concern at  present is the well-being of  the wild or native stocks - the  foundation of the resource.  To protect juvenile chinook  and coho salmon, spot closures to both commercial and  recreational fishermen will  be imposed in 1981.  Also planned for 1981 is a      i  two-area troll license scheme   ^^  Barrett's short stuff  On the present coalition provincial government:  The   Liberals  jumped   into  bed   with   the   Socreds;   the  Conservatives jumped into bed w'th the Socreds; then they all  pulled the covers up over themselves and to this day no one knows  who's feeling the effects.

On Ray Skelly:  Skelly is one of the brightest young M.P.'s ever elected from  B.C.  On Don Lockstead:  Lockstead is a good NDP man bul that doesn't stop him from  workingjust as hard for people of a different political persuasion.  He is the model of what an ML A should be.

Four running in Trust election  Saturday November 25 is voting day for the election of two  Islands Trust representatives for Gambier, Keats, Anvil and  Thormanby Islands.  Four candidates, Edmunds (Ed) Drummond, Dorothy Ann  Rogers. Edward (Ted) Smyth, and Helen Negroponte are seeking  election to the two Trustee positions vacated by retiring Trustees  Elspeth Armstrong and Beverley Baxter.  Running mates Ed Drummond and Ann Rogers have stated  that they are committed to the objectives ofthe Islands Trust Act,  specifically the preservation and protection of the unique  amenities and environment ofthe islands. Both see the possibility  of an open pit copper-molybdenum mine on Gambier Island as  the single most important issue in this election.  Both Drummond and Rogers support the Islands Trust  position of unequivocal opposition to the establishment of an  open pit mine on Gambier Island and also to any exploration for  mineral deposits on all trust islands. Both were active last week  lobbying against the mine at the Social Credit Party Convention  held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Vancouver.  Both Drummond and Rogers are active members of the  Community Association and both support the Community Plan  and the By-laws as approved by the islanders. Ed Drummond is a  summer resident of Gambier Island, has owned property in the  Fircom area for 15 years, and is an active member and past-  president of the Gambier Island Property Owner's Association  (Fircom area). Drummond is also a Director of the Gambier  Island Preservation Society. Ann Rogers is a part-time resident of  Gambier Island where her family has owned property for 30 years.  Both state that they believe in seeking islanders opinions on issues  of concern to property owners, working with the islands'  community associations, and co-operating with the government  to provide convenient ferry service for the islanders.  Current trustees Elspeth Armstrong and Beverly Baxter have  indicated they support Ed  Drummond and Ann Rogers as  candidates in this election.  Contesting the election is the team of Helen Negroponte and  Edward (Ted) Smyth. Helen Negropontc is a long time resident of  New Brighton on Gambier Island and has served a previous two  year term as Islands Trustee (1977-1978). Ted Smyth, a  descendant of the family who pioneered Gambier Harbour and  were instrumental in getting thc first wharf there, is a spring and  summer resident of Gambier Harbour who winters on the  Sunshine Coast, having recently moved here from Victoria.  "We arc aware of the local needs and issues of Gambier and are  sure this applies to Keats and the other islands as well," Smyth  says, "These islands, we feel, can be served by trustees who are on  the spot."  Smyth does not agree that the possibility of an open pit mine of  Gambier is the single most important issue facing the islands.  "Due to the low grade of the ore samples, there may nevcrbe a  mine on Gambier Island," Smyth says, "I hope this is the case, 4s!C;  am not altogether in favour of this proposed mine."  Smyth describes the question of thc mine as "a blown up affair"  and says "1 don't think it's the biggest problem."  Smyth says he foresees few problems for the islands as long as  there is no great influx of people moving on to them. Smyth and  Helen Negroponte promise to "strive to maintain the character of  the islands", "to preserve the environment yet endeavour to  provide the essentials for permanent residents, summer residents  and visitors" and both are "keenly interested in the futuie and  orderly development of the islands."  Polls will be open from 8 am. to 8 pm. on Saturday November  15, at the Legion Hall, Gambier Harbour, on Gambier Island and  at Langdale Elementary School at Langdale.

Mr. LeBlanc said that the  decisions were influenced by  the recent Pearse-Doucet  study, the Sol Sinclair study  on licensing, many representations from the fishing  Industry and extensive work  carried out by Pacific region  officials.  The Minister announced  that at the outset he wanted to  state his re-commitment to the  salmonid enhancement program and that he would be  requesting funding to proceed  with planning activity for the  next phase ofthe program,  "However, although the  salmonid enhancement program has contributed greatly  to the numbers of fish harvested in recent years, it alone  will not solve the difficulties  of the west coast salmon  industry," said Mr, LeBlanc.  Of primary concern at  present is the well-being of  the wild or native stocks - the  foundation of the resource.  To protect juvenile chinook  and coho salmon, spot closures to both commercial and  recreational fishermen will  be imposed in 1981.  Also planned for 1981 is a      l  two-area troll license scheme    ^^  designed to reduce salmon  fishing in the Gulf of Georgia.  In that year, troll gear vessels  will have to either fish in the  Gulf or outside it. This scheme  will be assessed at the end of  1981 to determine its effectiveness.

During a scramble at the G.T.'s goalmouth, the defencemen  had no intention of leaving it up to their goalie. They rushed in, knocked thc attackers aside, and  covered their netminder. Saturday's game between the G.T.'s and Sunshine Motors ended in a 3-3  lie.  Knee injuries  Knee injuries are probably  the greatest cause of ending of a  sports career. Immediately  after trauma many athletes are  allowed to return into action  simply because there is no  immediate swelling. Haemar-  throsis (bleeding into a joint)  can occur over a period of  hours and is an indication of  serious joint injury.  Joint effusion as a result of a  sprain of one of thc many knee  ligaments can take from 4 to 12  hours to appear. The result is a  knee that is "watery" to the  touch. Before swelling or effusion occur the knee can be  tested lor instability in side-to-  side motion and back-to-front  motion.  First Aid:  When the knee is first injured  thc main aim is to prevent  further damage from occuring.  Thus: I. Compress it with a  tensor bandage. 2. Apply ice  (IS minutes at a time). 3. Keep  the leg elevated and supported.  4. If thc knee hurts - Stay off it.  Medical Aid:  I. See a physician to confirm  the diagnosis, to get an x-ray.  etc.  2.  Get  referred  to a  physiotherapist.  Rehabilitation:  A physiotherapist will have  modalities  and  techiques to  initially help reduce pain,  spasm and swelling. After the  acute stage, the aims of rehabilitation lie mainly with the  athlete in following a program  to regain muscle strength and  joint mobility.  At home the applications of  cold and compression combined with elevation should  continue frequently. Use isometric quads exercises in  supine, prone or side lying to  maintain muscle tone.  In the semi-acute stage, use  contrast bathing with hot and  cold towels (I minute hot, I  minute cold for 20-30 minutes).  follow thc 10-15 minutes cold  compress and frequent static  contractions and straight leg  raises during the day.  After swelling has started to  subside, use heat alone, e.g. hot  towels for 20-30 minutes followed by 10-15 minutes of cold  compresses. Gradually increase  the exercise program, keeping  swelling under control when  necessary.  Exercises include static contractions, straight leg raising,  swimming, isotonic quads,  cycling, step-ups to increasing  heights, half-squats, easy jogging, balance board, etc.  Check your progress with  your doctor or physiotherapist.

A business may find if necessary to be  open, because of its location, the class  or kind of trade it caters to and/or the  needs of its customers.  4.

If  housewives, or shift workers find it  more convenient to shop on Sundays  or Holidays, they should not be  prevented from doing so by legislation.  Protect vour Clull Liberties  VOTE VES  This advertisement placed   on behalf of  The Gibsons Chamber of Commerce mmm  Carefree gardening  by Sandy Loam  November may be a bleak  month but those optomistic  look-aheaders will be yarding  out weeds and packing the  nether, less frequently used  areas of their gardens with a  new allotment of spring bulbs  for further drifts of future  colour. This is not the big deal  it is made out to be. You don't  have to plant all your new buys  at once. Just plunk in your  trowel making quite a deep  hole and drop in the bulb.  Presto! Spring flowers!  Try not to plant them in  rows. Where you see a space  toss in a grouping to cluster  your colours and bulb types.  Check thc bulb packages or the  back of the plant shop bin to  make sure you place thc taller  bulbs behind the dwarf and the  little snowdrops and crocus in  thc foreground. Actually for  snowdrops and crocus you can  claw up entire sections between  plants and garden edge and just  roll thc little bulbs in sweeps  covering them over with a few  inches of soil, lt is always sad to  hear some beginner in the  mysteries of gardening attempting to buy tulips and daffs in  the spring because she hasn't  realized that they must be  planted in the fall.  Toss grass clippings and  leaves around your roses and  tender plants (that's mulching)  to keep them warm and snug  over the winter. Rip out  exhausted annuals such as  petunias and marigolds and  toss them on your compost.  Leave the Marguerites as they  will make good cut flowers  until Christmas and they have  been known to winter over if  things stay mild. Leave the  edges to poke at whenever we  have a sunny day throughout  the winter but yank out the  fatter weeds and grass chunks.  This can all be done daily bit by  bit without it ever becoming a  mammoth chore.  If you have an irritating  hollow in your lawn where the  mower skips and you are  forever trying to scrunch it  down to get at the grass, cut an  X in the turf with your half-  round edger and lift it back,  toss in a few shovels of soil, flip  back the turf and tramp it  down. I have had awfully good  luck this year with replacing  and re-contouring turf in  various nonconforming spots. I  only want the lawns as a lead up  to the flower gardens so if I  don't like a line or a contour I  just alter it. If you can drag out  the reluctant friends to whom  you've promised cuttings and  perennials now is a good time  for lifting and splitting and  sharing. If the friends are  planted before the tube on a  Sunday afternoon leave them  there and set the goodies aside  in your holding garden. In  November only the die-hard  gardeners are still puttering.  I have just returned from an  extended summer and heat  wave in California where  people are still setting out the  things we arc throwing on the  compost. The entire coast line  of Oregon and California is one  giant lazy gardener's paradise,  a rockery whose mainstay is  wild pink and green ice plant!  Acres and acres of pink sprinkled with creeping beach  primroses. Every ditch and  road edge is filled with seaside  daisies (which look very like  our Michelmas daisy but a  different leaf and dwarf, they  must be first cousins). All along  the freeways right through San  Francisco and down to glorious Big Sur these low growing  lovely plants intermingle.  Neither Hydro nor Highways leave any five o'clock  stubble when clearing. In areas  where they have cleared brush  they have plowed and uprooted  and sewn a very fine moss or  creeping fescue or something  which makes thc banks look  like velvet, putting greens. It  must be a bitmorcexpensivcto  start but it precludes thc  necessity of annual re-cutting  and the ugliness this leaves  behind. Our trees and woodlands are so lovely how 1 wish  the road edges could stay pretty  without their annual mauling.  Most freeway areas have  automatic sprinkling systems  which we have from above.  A Reminder: Get those  spring bulbs in but take your  time and enjoy it. Post Script:  Would the lady who called  about the blue lace Hydrangea  in Sechelt please call again?  When will I stop using the  backs of envelopes to take  notes? I think it's my form of  recycling. I can't bear to see all  that blank paper to in thc fire.  HAPI'Y GARDENING.  Reflections  Of derelicts and winos  Coast News, November 11, 1980  19  byVemGletbrocht  I've long been fascinated by  derelicts, winos, down-and-  outers, call them what you  will. It's not that I visit Skid  Road regularly to watch the  unhappy denizens on their  futile daily rounds, or stop the  car when I see shabby men  hunting for beer bottles in the  ditches. No, it's simply that  seeing these people invariably  causes me to speculate about  their earlier lives, about the  happier days they must have  known before they fell from  respectability. There's probably a touch of smugness  and condescension in my  curiosity, as if the "bums"  'were freak acts in a circus.  In one of the towns I called  home I often observed three  citizens walking the streets,  by the hour it seemed. I exchanged a few words with two  of them but never got to know  them. They didn't belong to  the Chamber of Commerce or  one of the service clubs or  any of the other organizations  in the town and I had no  occasion to interview them for  a news story. Yet when I  remember my years in that  town, I often think of these  three men, Old Joe, The  Soldier and "Whiskey" Bill.  Is your wife insured ?  Your wife should have life insurance for pretty  well the same reasons you do. And for some  reasons that are all her own.  Get in touch and let's talk  it over.  Gaoff Hodgkinaon,  Box 957,  Gibaona, B.C.  ���86-8018  Mutual Life of Canada  Parking concerns  Sechelt council  Sechell Council arc concerned about future parking difficulties  in the village. At their regular meeting held last week council  discussed the situalion in light of thc fact that space within the  village boundaries is already at a premium and the water table  close to the surface precludes underground parking in the village.  Among potential trouble spots is the development on Teredo  Square. Council members said that, while there are only 62  parking spaces in the entire area, the Forest Service will have 82  employees next year and the whole third floor ofthe building is  not yet in use.  The Sunshine Coast Credit Union has only eleven spaces but  already has fourteen employees. The Bank of Montreal only has  four or five spaces but has between 18 and 20 employees.  An exception to the general picture is the Trail Bay Shopping  Mall which has, with an eye to the future, provided more than fifty  parking spots in addition to its present requirements.  Despite this fact Mayor Bud Koch told council that Dick  Clayton, owner of Shop-Easy and Trail Bay Mall had told him  that he would be willing to contribute to a fund possibly to be  raised by business men to buy land for a parking area in the  village.  Woodburners  encouraged  Some very good news was  outlined on October 28th by  Finance Minister Allan  MacEachan on the oil conversion program for homeowners. Outlined is a plan to  convert homeowners using oil  heat to natural gas, electricity  or other energy,  Wayne Rourke, Regional  Licensee for Fisher Stoves,.  one of the nation's largest  wood stove manufacturers,  confirmed today that "other  energy includes wood stoves  that are CSA or ULC certified". Rourke said, "The  Federal Government will accept wood stoves in the program that by design will save  more than 50% of their  present   oil   heating   bill".  Old Joe  How wearily you tottered down the street, Old Joe,  ashen-faced, cheeks like putty,  cadging handouts in a boozy voice.  Remember how you slumped against the door of my old Chev  when I gave you a lift one day, and how you  clutched your sweaty cap with the three good fingers  of your right hand?  You almost fell out of the car  when I stopped at your cabin by the creek,  you sad old derelict.  What made you happy in the night  or pushed you out of bed at sunrise,  you doomed, brave trooper?  Soldier  Standing ramrod straight at the corner of Wallace and Park,  he glared with fierce eyes like the Ancient Mariner and  thumped his temples and muttered angry words  that no one understood.  "Shellshock from the war," the townsfolk murmured,  edging past his spectral figure.  His fit over, he stroked his dirty gray beard,  straightened his packsack, laden with romances from the  library,  and strode away, as if marching into battle.  Whiskey BUI  Legends grew around him, this scruffy, weasel-faced man,  the one they called "Whiskey" Bill.  Lived under a bridge, folks claimed,  once killed a logger in a brawl,  ate roasted squirrels like "Boo" Radley of Mockingbird  fame.  He teamed up with Old Joe and The Soldier,  this satyr with ferret eyes,  in endless boozing forays around town.  Silent, wary, leering with an evil yellow grin,  strolling with a rolling sailor's gait -  Joseph Conrad would have loved him.  EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE  THE WARMTH  AND SECURITY  OF A TEDDY BEAR.

Both the Elphinstone Aero  Club members, mostly private  pilots and Tyee Air Services,  our local airline, have been  involved in such incidents and  the one problem has been in  communicating between the  aircraft and the ground  search,   or   marine   units.  This problem has now been  overcome with the provision  by P.E.P. of a portable  VHF-AM radio which can talk  directly to the aircraft, (on  122.9 Mhi, for the benefit of  fliers) and which will be part  of the equipment of any search  unit, land or marine, which  may be having aircraft cooperation.

R.R. #1, Halfmoon Bay 20  Coast News, November 11, 1980  "Cougar Brown's" advice  Carl's  corner  In search of a career  by Carl Chrismas  That first September morning on Cecil Mountain dawned  cold and clear and our little,  unlined cabin was as frigid as  the grave. 1 reached from my  sleeping bag to the chromed-  bell draft control of the  airtight heater and it began to  tinkle its merry tune as the  fir bark I had stuffed it with  the night before began to  ignite.  While waiting for the cabin  to warm I thought of the  dreams that had filled my  night; of climbing that spar  tree; of falling from the top  as my rope parted for some  strange reason; of slipping  while scrambling over the  guylines to thread the pass-  rope through its little block  at the top.  My only experience with  height had been to climb  the tall roofs of Vancouver  houses to mount umbrella  aerials. To climb and work  in the rigging of a 120 foot  fspar tree was another ball  of wax.  My greatest fear was that I  would chicken out at the last  minute and destroy a dream  that had been instilled in my  mind by my old logger friend,  Rat Portage John - to become  a high rigger.  To fail and become relegated to the ranks of a  ground-bound rigging man or  some other unglamorous job.  Oh, the ignominy of it all 1  Hells fire I There was no use  laying here stewing about  something that I was determined was never going to  happen. I thought of my new  friend Percy Brown and his  confident assurances that if  we took one step at a time,  made every move count,  that old machine would do the  job, the rigging would last  the show and we could make  a buck.  I leapt out of bed, charged  by the excitement of a new  challenge, impatient to  scratch a new track up that  rocky sidehill and attack that  spar as though it were the  last barrier standing between  me and the rest of my life. I  dressed hurriedly and devoured a hearty breakfast.  Brown arrived a short time  later and we planned our day.  Bert was off to the Giovando's  in Ladysmith and then to  Nanaimo. We wouldn't see  him for the rest ofthe day.  Percy and I were to work our  way up the hill with the log  truck to get the road opened  and passable.  It was late afternoon by the  time we reached the spar tree  and too late to start on other  chonft. But it was not too late  to drag the belt and spurs  down from its peg on the  yarder; for Brown to, check  the needle-like point&of the  spurs, the condition of the  steel-cored climbing rope and  for me to buckle them on for  size.  Brown was not a climber  but he knew what had to be  done. It had been his job as  hooktender to attach guylines,  shackles and blocks to the  passline and send them up the  tree for the rigger to put in  place.  He showed me how to throw  the long climbing rope around  the tree and catch the end;  to insert the end through the  eye fastened to the side of the  belt and tie the 'cat's-paw'  or riggers knot that could be  tightened or loosened to  adjust to the girth ofthe tree.  We still had half an hour of  daylight so there was time to  get in a little practice. Brown  told me about men who had  no trouble climbing up at their  first try but had climbed too  high before starting back  down. Even a cat does not  come back down a tree as  gracefully as they climb up.  A human being has the same  problem. Without the passline  of a rigged tree or another  climber with a set of gear it  can be quite a chore to unfreeze a man and get him  back down, short of falling the  tree.  "Best thing to do", growled  Brown, "Is to walk about ten  feet up, then come on back  down. Do that a couple of  times until you are about  thirty feet up. If you're  going to be a climber you'll  know by then. You'll be just as  scared at thirty feet as at a  hundred. Start climbin 'I"  That first ten feet almost  wore me out. That bark and  wood was so hard and dry I  had to drive my spur in to  make it stick. Or so I thought.  "No, no," scolded Brown.  "Just drag your foot against  the tree and let the spur find  its way into the wood. Your  weight will push it in  enough."  He was right ��� almost!  A couple of times a spur would  catch a high point of bark and  slab off. This would drop me.  The first time it scared me  spitless and left my knees  snaking for awhile. But after  skinning my nose and a couple  of knuckles I soon learned.  I walked up and down that  tree until dark and by that  time I was up to at least thirty  feet.  By now it was almost dark  so the ground was barely  visible, But by this time I was  quite confident.  Untying from the tree and  stepping back, I crowed,  "Nothing to 'er, eh Perse?"  "Don't get too cocky. You  ain 't been to the top yet I"  I nodded in agreement but  felt a bit deflated by his  remark. Was there something  I was not aware of yet? Was I  going to chicken out up the  tree?  That evening at supper,  after Bert had arrived with the  bullblock and rigging, I  bragged a bit about my  practice.  "Don't get too brave. You  have to untie and climb over  them guylines tomorrow 1''  I thought about that through  another restless, dream-filled  nightl  To be continued  Burning leaves helps  control Dogwood disease  Rake up and destroy fallen  dogwood leaves to help control  dogwood leaf blotch.  That's the advice from the  B.C. Ministry of Agriculture  and Food for Lower Mainland  and Vancouver Island gardeners who have seen signs of  the fungus disease on their  dogwood trees this past  summer.  The most noticeable symptom of the disease is large,  wedge-shaped, brown blotches at the edges of leaves.  Tiny black dots are often  visible in the blotches. Infected leaves drop prematurely.  Dogwood leaf blotch generally appears from late May to  early June, but can occur  at other times ofthe year. It is  most severe when there is a lot  of rain during spring and  summer. Other years, the  disease is not particularly destructive  The ministry's plant clinics  in Cloverdale and Victoria  have had numerous inquiries  regarding the problem this  year. Clinic technicians say  the leaf blotch has affected  dogwoods in Washington state  and further south, but is  probably new to British  Columbia.  ��� jiiiiiii.**"******" *H  The students at the figure skating classes at the Sechelt Arena may  not be up to this standard vet. hut they are coming along nicely.

Halfmoon Bay Auxiliary  The Auxiliary held their  monthly meeting on November 4th, just two days  after the bazaar and it was  with a great deal of satisfaction that President Mary  Murray reported on a very  successful endeavour. The  affair was a great success  despite the fact that prior to  the opening everyone was  filled with gloom because it  really was a dreadful day  weatherwise. However, good  old Halfmoon Bay came  through and turned out to give  their support to our efforts.  President Mary expressed her  appreciation for all the help  she had received, with a  particular word of thanks to  the many people from other  auxiliaries who also brought  along donations for our  bazaar.  There is one member who  always deserves a really good  pat on the back and to whom  a big hand was given. This is  of course our good friend  Eva Lyons who never fails to  have a lineup waiting to hear  what the future holds in store  in their tea leaves. Thanks,  Eva I  As this was the meeting  for the nominations of Officers  for the coming year, the  President vacated the chair  for Past President Geri Smith  to conduct the nominations.  The officers elected were:  President Mary Murray; Vice  President Alison Steele; Secretary Olive Comyn and  Treasurer Jean Scott. Heads  of committees are as follows:  Thrift Shop Chairman is  Evelyn Shellshear assisted by  Connie Hobbs and Carmen  Grassie, Gift Shop Chairman  is Dorothy Stacey, Social  convenors are Jean Mercer  and Irene Mercer, while  publicity will be handled  by Ruth Forrester.  Following the elections,  business continued with Maty  Macdonald requesting help  for the November birthday  party at the Extended Care  unit which will be hosted  by our Auxiliary on Wednesday, November 19th at 2:30  p.m. Any members who can  give a couple of hours of their  time to come along and help  make this a happy day for the  patients will be more than  welcome.  Members were reminded  ofthe Sechelt Auxiliary bazaar  which will be at the Senior  Citizen Hall in Sechelt on November 8th from two 'til  four.  Arrangements were also  made for our Christmas party  which will be held at the  Welcome Beach Community  Hall on Monday, December  1st. This will be a catered-to  turkey dinner, the price is  seven dollars each and we  hope to see all our members  with their husbands or friends  there. Happy Hour will be  from six 'til seven when  dinner will be served. In order  that we can arrange for the  number planning to attend,  reservations will have to be  made prior to November  24th and may be done by  calling either Mary Murray or  Grace Rutherford before that  date.  Following the business part  of the meeting, a guest  speaker, Stella Morrow, was  welcomed. Stella represents  the Co-ordinating Council on  the board of St. Mary's  Hospital and had been invited  to attend the meeting to  explain the functions of the  auxiliaries and to answer the  many questions which the  members were asking. She  gave a most comprehensive  account of the purposes and  goals of the auxiliaries  Following the meeting,  refreshments were served  and a mini raffle was held, the  winner being our Guest of  Honour Stella Morrow.  Don't forget that Gibsons  Auxiliary will be holding  their "aloha" Luncheon on  November 14th, nor the fact  that UNICEF cards are now on  sale at the Gift Shop in the  hospital lobby.

Continued from Page Two.  a drunken doctor? Davis at  least had his day in court!  I never noticed him berating a  drunken doctor when the  Indian Band was trying to  get ��� help to replace him.  They had to go to the federal  government to get action. Mr.  D. you should know that you  - can't sue or charge anyone  with a degree. Even a poor  dumb slob such as I can see  why you were charged.  Mr. Bennett, when you  were on T.V. with Bleeding  Heart Bannerman you made a  statement about everyone  having basic rights (this was  in the context of Human rights  in our constitution being  patriated). Mr. B. I wish to  give you some Instances  where you could be called a  liar. I had four doctors all  checking my heart and telling  me it was in perfect condition.  A short time later all four were  proven to be bold-faced  liars when I had a vicious  heart attack due to the front  artery being 80% plugged  and a clot hitting it. Not one of  them had brains enough to  send me for a stress test so  I could have had surgery  before the attack. The most  arrogant   of  the   four   had  ��� the gall to say he didn't send  ���people for stress tests until  they had chest pains. I suggest a 12 year old child would  question the wisdom of giving  a stress test in the middle  : of a  heart  attack.  Human  " rights Mr. B. - that's a crock  I of male bovine manure. Had  I kicked the bucket these same  doctors would have been paid.  Lay   Charges?   No   way I  \ Sue? For what? Mr. Davis can  ; tell you about trying to lay  charges or sue anyone with a  damned degree. When I see  ��� what people with a degree  : get away with I am damned  ��� thankful to be just a poor  j dumbslobl  Mr. B. a short time after I  moved to Sechelt I tried to get  my farm zoning (assessment)  - on this property (I had 40  - acres in Delta before). I dealt  with two arrogant  ignorant  : bastards who would listen to  .'nothing.   The   portly   one's  main claim to fame was that  the drug store hasn't been  v* built that he couldn't ride,  ;ywhile the little one's main  : $laim to fame was the size of  ; ttye chip on his shoulder. I  ' would   guess   the   size   at  2x$x8 ft. When I got nowhere  I   wrote   to  your   so-called  (then) Municipal Affairs Minister Mr. Hugh Curtis. Is that  guy for real Mr. B? He wrote  i back that there was no sign of  farmingl Are 14 horses a sign  I of  apartment   living?   Your  : brother's (or at least I was told  ' by the driver he was) Com-  ; pany hauled them up here. Is  ; he suggesting your brother is  a liar? I have my cancelled  cheque for $300.00 plus his  bill marked paid. To top this  off I had use of the 40 acres in  Delta plus I rented 20 acres up  here plus my seven acres  here. I baled enough hay to  qualify me over and over plus  all the other qualifications.  Now Mr. B. do you expect me  or anyone else to have confidence in a character like that  as our Finance Minister?  You talk about Human rights  Mr. B. I guess he's scared of  the assessors up here is he?  I am getting more satisfied  by the minute with being just  a poor dumb slob.  Now Mr. B. your water  rights Branch, your fisheries,  and your Environment Branch  of water rights are a bunch of  dinks with degrees and you  yap on about rights. A dipstick  with a P.H.D. in psychology  was given permission by them  and the federal fisheries to  hire a cat and send it onto  another man's property, to  remove this other man's  topsoil (In the Agricultural  Land Reaerve yet) and fill in a  creek. The dipstick almost  ended up with a high squeaky  voice I Mr. Bennett why were  there no charges laid against  your engineers and the  Federal fisheries? Also your  own fisheries? If I could  refresh your memory this is  the same sort of way W.W.II  started. Does being a dink  with a degree permit you to  take the law into your own  hands? I think you are going to  get that shoved down your  throat yet, Mr. B.  To carry on Mr. B. all that  good topsoil was washed into  Davis Bay by flooding. Now  we get into the classical  "Dink with a degree dance".  All of a sudden your boys  are all pointing to each other  in panic. They resemble a  dozen cats all using the same  litter box, they can't cover  their own offerings without  uncovering   someone   elses.  Next a new family move in  next to the dipstick with a  P.H.D. and they inherit all  this mess which your boys  perpetrated. We got many  heavy rains and the restrictions which your boys  allowed the dipstick to put in  caused flooding on the Allen's  property and washed half his  lower field into Davis Bay.  Your boys put the bill at  $10,000 expecting the Allen's  to pay. You should see some of  the correspondence from your  boys Mr. B��� it would make  you throw up. Why can't  people charge Frere Pierre's  fishy storm troopers? They lay  charges against any and all.  They are as phoney as a $4 bill  too, trying to tell people they  can't put culverts in because  fish won't go through them.  Then why have the fish in  both Husdon and Wilson  Creek been going through one  under Highway 101 for years?  Now the stew thickens, Mr.  B. The dipstick applied for an  irrigation permit after all his  shenanigans and got it - no  problem. I applied for one and  have gotten nothing but  crap from your boys. I have  had the last threat from these  jokers Mr. Bennett. The next  threat, whether verbal, implied, written or in any other  mode will be shoved where  the sun doesn't shine, word by  word. I have met all the  qualifications to the letter and  have done everything asked.  Next the Regional District,  that loquacious, lovable bunch  of sweet rascals decided to put  a water line through this  troubled area. They claim, and  I repeat Mr. B., claim to have  gotten permission of fisheries  and all your bureaucratic  boys to cross Wilson and  Husdon Creek.  You have to see the abortion  of a bridge crossing on the  Husdon Creek to believe it.  As they were putting it in  they unleashed an enormous  amount of dirt into the creek  and my water supply, plugging my lines, drains and  burning out a part of my  washer.  If the Federal dinks gave  them permission then why  can't we lay charges against  them?  There is a few tons of dirt  waiting for the next heavy rain  to wash into the creek destroying my neighbours' entrance driveway and plugging  my lines and washer again.  Mr. Bennett - I laughed at  one of your government  members getting uptight a-  bout the Klu Klux Klan.  After all, you have the C.C.C.  in your bureaucracies. The  Klu Klux Klan hides their  cowardice and bigotry behind  bed sheets, while your C.C.C.  hides their little brains from  the Truth with white handkerchiefs. Oh yes - C.C.C.  stands for Clueless Clucks  Clan and I think they are  far mote dangerous than the  K.K.K.inB.C.  Mr. Williams handling of  the hopheads vs. farmers  mushroom war leaves much to  be desired. I was always  under the impression the  AG had to be a lawyer. Good  Lord - a chilling thought just  struck me, maybe he b a  lawyer.  Mr. B., I suggest someone  get up here and straighten  tiiis mess out before the really  heavy rains hit and Mr. Allen  loses the rest of his lower  farm, there are three farms  now in danger of the heavy  rains. If you don't get someone to kick a few bureaucratic  asses you are going to be  embarrassed a little more.  That is not a threat, it la a  promise.  What human rights were  you referring to anyway,  Mr.B?  I need the Farm Zoning to  augment my $201.00 per  month disability pension and  I most certainly qualify or do  you let the C.C.C. change the  qualifications at their leisure?  For another example of  Human Rights, Mr. B., your  Liquor Inspectors put the  legal onus of responsibility  on the shoulders of the Bar  Staff on duty in service  clubs regardless of how many  times the "General" tries to  bend or twist the rules - (Just  a teensy bit mind you.) Of  course. Why don't these  inspectors come later at night  incognito of course. It would  be worth it for the entertainment value of watching  the "General" in full uniform,  coat tails and medals flying,  as he charges around in ever  receding circles, and you know  they might learn something.

(Rocky) Mountain  Contributors thanked  Elves Club hampers  Editor:  Once again on behalf of the  Elves Club 1 am asking for help  so that we are able to take a  little bit of happiness to the  needy families ofthe Peninsula.  Last year there were 128  hampers delivered in time for  Christmas and it was due to  many of you that we were able  to do this so would like to take  this opportunity to say many  thanks for that and do hope  that we will be able to count on  you all again this year.  The Club runs on membership dues (one penny a day plus  one can of food per month), the  rest is donations from some  great people. All help in the  Elves Club is on a volunteer  basis so therefore all monies are  used for the good. Should you  require any more information  please feel free to call.  All donations should have a  complete mailing address so  that you get your receipt for  income tax purposes.  Sincerely,  Kathleen Belanger  (Secretary)  884-5324  Editor:  We would like at this time to  extend to everyone who  helped the Terry Fox Run for  Cancer by their donations  and to all who worked for it in  various ways, our warm  thanks for their support.  This support sprang from the  spontaneous admiration of a  multitude of people for the  magnificent effort made by  Terry Fox. The people of the  Sunshine Coast responded  generously through donations  sent by mail, given in collection boxes on business  premises and a number of  personal fund raising projects.  We would like to thank in  particular all the banks and  credit unions, Wakefield Inn  and the Halfmoon Bay Store  for money received through  collection boxes; Elphinstone  Secondary School for special  fund raising events; Mr. R.  Kushner of Egmont, Billy Dall  of Sechelt, and in Madeira  Park Michelle and Cherie  Cochet and Mona Gibson, for  their personal efforts; and  Ken's Lucky Dollar Store for  funds raised there; and also  donors of gifts received  through The Press. Other  substantial donations were  went directly to Vancouver,  but our local Committee has  no record of these at this time.  In all, to date, a total of  $7,139 has been received  on the Sunshine Coast for the  Terry Fox Fund. All of it will  be used to further cancer  research. Receipts for known  donations will be mailed  shortly.  In addition to gifts for the  Terry Fox Fund the Cancer  Society has also through the  past . year received other  donations and support from  Vmtip  Joob*  886-291*  Gibsons  Sandwiches  made to order.

I expect you will  be pleased to accept my appeal  regarding oversea pen pals for  our students.  I am a student of English  course in a noted university in  Seoul, Korea. My english  course class has about 57  students of both sexes. 1 am  eagerly seeking foreign students who would like to  correspond with our students.  There are also many Korean  students who want to exchange  letters and friendship with  American peoples, and they  frequently request me to let  them have foreign pen friends  since 1 have been to U.S.A. in  the year of 1979.  I've noticed this would help  not only their english and  emotional life, but also expand  their knowledge of foreign  lands. This would also promote  world wide friendship and  mutual relationship as well as  serving as a true foundation of  world peace.  I feel it is necessary to  publish this simple wish among  the peoples of the world,  therefore, I courteously request  you to run this letter in a corner  of your valuable paper.  The only information I need  of a student is his or hers' name,  address, sex, age, hobbies and  picture if possible.  1 expect to~..receJneimany  letters  from  yotttvtjjSSftl^s  wishing to correspond wiih our *  students.

Poisoning oar power Una.  There's a public meeting  ut the Regional Board offices  at 3:30 this Thursday to see if  the locals are against spraying  on the power line.  It appears to me that we  have gone this route before  and the answer was an  overwhelming 'NO' we don't  want any chemicals dumped  onto our watershed. It would  appear that once the public  has said 'No', the powers that  be wait for a year or so, then  ask the same question again,  hoping that people will get  fed up and not show up at  the    meeting.    When    this  happens, the powers (in this  case a very apt term, as it  applies to hydro) say that  there is public apathy and  then go ahead and get permission to spray. Don't Let  This Happen.  As a little aside for the folks  who attended a similar meeting two years ago in the same  Regional Board offices on the  same topic.  The fine people defending  the use of the chemicals in  that meeting were chemists  from Dow Chemical - who  make the herbicides - and  B.C. Hydro, who want to  apply it.  Perhaps some of you will  remember one of the Hydro's  experts at the meeting,  vegetation manager Peter  Mosby. Last Friday Mosby  and three other Hydro employees were charged with  attempting to mislead the  administration ofthe Pesticide  Control Act.

Remembrance Days Past and present On the  Ramblin&s  of a  Seafood  by Dee Cee  i Perhaps it would be as well  to make it clear right from the  start that this will be neither an  eulogy of this day nor for the  reasons that we have to remember it. War, no matter how  one looks at it, is a rotten, dirty  business and 1 have no intention of glorifying it nor  attempting to justify something  that has behind its motivation  the mad dreams of power-  hungry individuals, aided and  abetted by the insatiable greed  of the manufacturers of armaments. It is coincidental that  this effort to set down some of  my thoughts will appear (God  willing and assuming all the  little wheels and cogs are  working in the production of a  newspaper) on the llth of  November, as is the fact that I  was a somewhat .unwilling  participant in the holocaust  known as the Second World  War 1939-1945.  1 was fortunate in being one  of the thousands who made it  through those years of horror  and, for me, there were three V.  Days���V.E. Day which I  "celebrated" in a hospital bed  near London, England, V.J.  Day on the outskirts of Celle,  Germany (approximately 11  miles from Belsen Concentration Camp) and the most  anticipated V. Day of them all,  I 8th February 1946, when at  long last 1 turned in my  ' uniform and accoutrements at  Jericho Beach and became a  slightly bewildered civilian  prepared, or unprepared, to  take my place in a "peaceful"  world and attempt to pick up  the threads where I had left off.  Some day I hope to give an  account and it will not, I hope,  be lengthy of what happened  during those intervening years,  but at the moment I will  confine myself to a few random  thoughts and impressions that  came to me when 1 was  attending the 1979 ceremonies.  at the Cenotaph in Gibsons.  It was a glorious day wea-  therwise  with  a  sunny  and  cloudless  sky  but  with  a  decided nip in the air. As the  I events got underway I remem-  ��� ber so well looking south to the  ! mountains and remarking how  ! beautiful they were with their  light dusting of snow. When the  flag was lowered and the two  minute silence began it was  quiet but not completely so, a  (lock of crows were quarelling  noisily inaclumpof aldersjiear  ��� by   while one could hear the  steady hum oftrafficasthecars  and trucks sped up and down  on Highway 101. Their drivers  j were either unaware or un-  ; caring what time it was or,  J possibly,  not  even  knowing  I that the date was November  llth and what that day signified. In the distance could be  heard the voices of children at  play and I remember thinking  , and appreciating that in our  little   corner   of   the   world  everything appeared normal, lt  was a day such as any other.  However also came the thought  of how if things had gone badly  and we had lost the war and  Hitler had become the master  of not only his master race but  of the world, would we have  been   standing  there  paying  respects lo our fallen comrades? Would wc have had cars  to drive and, more important,  would our children, if we had  been permitted to have any  other than Aryan, be at play or  would their voices have been  forever stilled?  Fleetingly as my thoughts  ' raced  on   I  could not help  remembering the many contradictions of a world at war.

Well-meaning  people saving razor blades and  toothpaste tubes in England  whole-heartedly and sincerely  believing they were aiding the  war effort and, in contrast,  along the hot and dusty roads  of North Africa, or for that  matter any battleground, thousands and thousands oftons of  bent and twisted metal in thc  form of burned out trucks and  tanks, field artillery of all  shapes and sizes discarded and  useless and here and there the  gaunt remains of what had  once been a bridge.  I thought of the early days  and the raucous and ribald  songs we sang in the canteen at  Toronto Manning Pool when  we were mere fledglings in the  RCAF. Then a spell at No. 4  Wireless School at Guelph,  Ontario and, the "good times"  over, the sleet and the sludge of  the quagmire known as Debert,  Nova Scotia for our pre-  embarkation training and  when that day arrived how I,  half drunk on Gordon's gin,  marched with the hundreds of  others in the early dawn  through the streets of Halifax  to board the Empress of Japan.  With the crowds waving and  cheering and led by a pipe  band, for the first time in my  life I felt like a hero instead of a  heel. Maybe it was the gin but it  was a glorious moment and I  shall never forget it. It never  once occurred to me that  perhaps it was the last time 1  would walk on Canadian soil-  that I quite possibly would  become one of the casualties of  war. All 1 knew was what 1 felt  and experienced at the moment  and to hell with the future. My  country was at war and damn  it, right or wrong, I was part of  it and now there was no  retracing of steps. I had come  too far to back out now and for  better or worse 1 had to see it  through to the bitter end.

The bedlam and  confusion of running an airmen's mess at Tholthorpe  feeding 1200 men and how, in  order to retain even a semblance of sanity, I retreated to  the banks of the River Ouse on  my afternoons and evenings off  duty. How with a borrowed  rod, line and hook I vainly tried  to catch a "whopper" to show  off to the W AAFs in our mess  hall but, failing dismally, had  to settle for some squirming,  slippery eels with which l  chased and terrorized the  squealing girls until the Duly  Officer came in and the fun was  brought to a sudden end.  I thought of the night when,  still with Bomber Command  but now at Middleton St.  George, the German Intruder  planes followed our bombers  back to base and not only  blasted our hangars and airstip  but, coming out of their drive,  stitched the roof of the mess  hall with tracer bullets and how  Pat (a former governess and  tutor for the children of a titled  family in Scotland and now a  Corporal in the WAAF) and I  crawled into the coal cellar and  huddled there till the raid was  over and the all-clear given.

The war years were  past and gone, Remembrance  Day was over for another year  but, as 1 slowly walked away,  there was still a thought left to  perplex me.  If a war between nations can  be settled and an armistice  signed at a table to end  hostilities, why in the name of  all that's holy cannot an  agreement be made at the same  table that would prevent a war  happening in the first place? If  we can find an affirmative  answer to that question the  haunting spectre of death and  destruction will be removed.  We can still remember but  those war years will not have  been wasted and our comrades'  sacrifices will not have been in  shire after my  return from    vain.  Referendum on  recreation  While all three returning candidates for the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board are being returned by acclamation this fall,  regional voters in Areas E and F do have an important  referendum in their areas.  At stake is the future contributions of these districts, both of  which abut the village of Gibsons, towards the recreational  facilities which residents of the regions utilize and enjoy.  Last week, both regional directors for Areas E and F, Jim  Gurney and David Hunter respectively, urged a yes vote  Voting on the Recreation Facilities Assistance referendum will  take place at Cedar Grove Elementary School in Area E and at  Langdale Elementary School in Area F at the usual voting time of  between 8:00 am. and 8:00 pm.  by Chak-Chak  Last week I mentioned that  dulse is available in Gibsons  and because I believe that  seaweed should have ��� place  in our diet I am going to give  you some more very interesting facts about this product.  More people to-day are  becoming aware ofthe need to  provide nutritious food for  their family in the most  natural way possible. Seaweed  can be a very important item  in providing those very important minerals and trace  elements needed to maintain  a healthy body,  The following information  is printed on the cartons of  Platter  dulse at the Gibsons  Market.  Hairy Gieene'i  'Health In a box brand Dulse'  Dried in the sun (not artificially). Natural health food  from the sea (no preservatives  added). Packed by Harry  Greene, North Head, Grand  Manan, N.B.  Dulse contains the following:-  Protein 25.3%  Carbohydrate 44.2%  Fat 3.8%  Mineral Salts 26.7%  Sodium 0.47%  Potassium 7.11%  Calcium 2.5%  Iodine 0.008%  Magnesium 0.22%  Copper 0.026%      Coast News, November 11, 1980  23  Zinc 0.0041%  Nickel 0.0072%  Cobalt 0.000013%  Fluorine 0.0015%  Molybdenum 0.000031 %  Small amounts of Chromium  Strontium, Titanium'  Vanadium Silica about 0.6%  A very impressive list indeed.  This kind of seaweed  is  available in bulk at Gibsons  Fish  Market  and  in  small  plastic packets at Gibsons  Variety Foods on Gower  Point Road.  The British Columbia  government is now getting  involved with the production  of seaweed on this coast  through the experimental  work being carried out by Dr.  Ron Foreman and his staff  at the Bamfield Marine  Station, on the west coast  at the seaward end of Alberni  Canal.  In order to introduce dulse  to your family, try placing it  in small dish on the coffee  table  with  or  in   place  of  potato   chips,   peanuts   etc.  Another way to get people  to eat dulse is to use it as a  condiment. Separate the dulse  leaves and place them on a  tray or in a paper bag and  place in a warm dry place.  An oven with very low heat  and the door open is O.K.  but you must not let it overheat or you will spoil it.  When the dulse is crispy  dry, break it into small pieces  and put it in a small bowl  with a sugar spoon that can be  used to sprinkle it over salads  or into soup instead of using  the salt shaker.

VON 3A0  Speed Reading Course  to be taught on  Sunshine Coast  Vancouver Reading Centre  has completed arrangements  to conduct their famous  Speed Reading Program to a  limited number of qualified  students here on the Sunshine  Coast.  This course can teach an  average person to read five to  seven times faster (1,000 to  2,000 words per minute) and  stresses greatly improved  comprehension.  As well as speed and understanding, the course greatly  improves a person's ability to  concentrate and develops  much better test taking and  study habit skills. For instance, average graduates  can read small novels in 45  minutes or less, even huge  books like "Shogun", "Rich  Man, Poor Man", "Exodus"  etc., can be read in just a few  hours. Textbooks and technical material can be ab  sorbed much more effectively and in half the time.  This is a must for business  people and a necessity for  students.  The Course requires that  you attend only one class per  week. Each class is 2V> hours  long. You attend for 5 short  weeks only. At the end of the  classroom course (5 weeks)  an additional Home Study  Program on cassette tape  will be given every student,  so they can continue to review  and improve their skills. The  main benefit is that the  student will never slow back  down and as a matter of fact,  can continue to improve  indefinitely to whatever level  of success they desire; even  5,000 words per minute in  some cases.  The instructor, who will  commute from Vancouver  has over 14 years experience  in dynamic reading and study  skills.  First Lesson  Free  The school offers the opportunity for interested parties  tn attend the 1st lesson with  no obligation to enroll or any  charge whatsoever. At this  first lesson each person will  learn their present speed and  comprehension and personal  potential for this training.  Also the course will be explained in complete detail  along with much advice on  how to improve immediately.  Some will double or even  triple their speed at this 1st  lesson.  If you decide to continue the  complete course, you will find  the tuition is less than 1/3 the  cost of similar programs.  The course is available to  the general public (above age  14 please).  Due to the tremendous  problem of commuting from  Vancouver, this Free Speed  Reading lesson will be available on the Sunshine Coast  One  Time Only  this Saturday, November 15,  at 9:15 am. (sharp) in Room  114, Chatelech Junior Secondary School, Sechelt, B.C.  (Open to all ages and educational levels above age 14).  There is no charge or  obligation in attending but be  prepared to enroll, if you  should decide to take the rest  of the course.  Please only serious-minded  potential students in attendance.  No one will be admitted  past 9:20 am.���so please be  prompt.

Introducing MLA Don Lockstead, Ms. Fullerreminsced about  campaigning for Lockstead in his first campaign against Isobel  Dawson eight years ago. "Ms. Dawson was a formidable  opponent but Don carried the day and he has carried thc years,"  said Ms. Fuller.  Paying tribute to Lockstead as 'warm, open, and hardworking', Fuller said that thc MLA was doing an excellent job in  Victoria.  Speaking briefly to introduce party leader Dave Barrett,  Lockstead, thc NDP transportation critic in Victoria, told the  meeting that every ferry he had travelled on the day had  overloads.  "I'm again promising improved ferry services," said Lockstead.  "Let's plan for growth and tourist services. Let's work with the  municipalities and the regional districts. Let's do it right."  Sechelt moves on  amalgamation  Alderman Charles Lee presented Sechelt Council with a Notice  of Motion to proceed with the proposed amalgamation of the  village of Sechelt with Area C at last week's council meeting.  "We would take in the portion of Area C from the Girl Guide  camp to Salmon Inlet," said Lee in presenting a map of the  proposed amalgamation area to council.  "We should be getting the Deputy Minister in on this now," said  Lee, "with the referendum going before the people by the year-end  of 1981 or earlier."  Council passed a resolution requesting the Department of  Municipal Affairs to review the amalgamation of Area C and the  village of Sechelt, along with all assistance that the ministry could  supply Sechelt in the matter.  A comment from Alderman Brian Stelck to the effect that  ministry officials could not reveal contents of private  conversations with Alderman Lee drew a strong rebuke from Lee  who said that he had not had private conversations with the  ministry. Lee said that his conversations in Victoria had been  undertaken at the behest of the mayor of Sechelt and had been  official conversations.  Cheekeye-Dunsmuir  vegetation meeting  Directors of the Sunshine Coast Regional District will meet  with B.C. Hydro representatives at 3:30 pm. this Thursday in the  regional board offices in Sechelt to discuss methods of vegetation  management along the right-of-way of the proposed Cheekeye-  Dunsmuir power-line.  The use of herbicides is likely to be a major issue in the  discussions and those who have objected to the line itself plan to  scrutinize the talks closely.  Egmont resident Iris Griffiths, recently arrested when she  refused to move out of the path of a bulldozer working on the  right-of-way on Texada Island, told the Coast News that a  meeting of the Cheekeye-Dunsmuir Alliance will be announced  immediately following the regional board discussions.

In the background is resident Ray Mountain.  In local creeks  Salmon runs threatened  by John Hlnd-Smlth  It seems we owe the chum  salmon an apology. Since last  year at this time when we  "air lifted" some of these so-  called lazy fish into the upper  part of Wilson Creek there has  been a great deal of debate on  the merits, or lack of same, of  the acrobatic abilities of the  chum as opposed to the coho.  Never again will the lowly  dog or chum salmon have to  put with the criticism that they  are too lazy to jump up waterfalls and fish-ladders in order  to reach a spawning area of  their choice.  I am fairly sure but not  completely convinced that the  guys who have put quite a bit  of time and effort into fixing  up the fish ladder on Wilson  Creek recently, cannot claim  responsibility for the run of  fish that went up the creek this  last week. Both chums and  coho took advantage of the  heavy rainfall of the past few  days but the thing that intrigues me is that chums in the  upper reaches of Wilson Creek  seem to be virtually unheard  of. I have not spoken to  anyone who has seen them up  there before. A resident who  has lived close by the creek  for nearly twenty years and  who has kept a fairly close  watch on it only recalls  having seen steelhead, coho  and trout. Up to now chums  have been conspicuous by  their absence.  This situation cannot be  passed over lightly. It seems  state one of two things. One,  that people living on the creek  have not been very observant  over the past twenty years,  and I must admit that I have  been keeping a pretty close  watch on it for the last five  years, and surely one would  think that someone would  have seen the fish if they had  been there over that period of  time.  The only other conclusion  seems to be that this particular run of chums did not  read the rule book that says  they must return to their  place of birth, to spawn and  die. We have had the odd fish  turn up that didn't belong,  like the steelhead that was  caught in Chapman Creek last  year that had been tagged in  Veddef or Capilano and the  ���chum we picked up last year in  Wilson Creek that came from  Think  Christmas!  <$L MBllff  886 2818  Wv have .1 myriad  of Great Gift  Giving Ide.is  Capilano hatchery, but these  are the exceptions. To get a  whole run of fish doing the  same thing seems odd to say  the least and it will be interesting to hear if the fisheries  people have an explanation.  By the time this is in print it'  is hoped that there are some  signs posted on Wilson  Creek warning people against  harming the fish in any way  and informing them of the  penalties that can be imposed.  It is too bad that such actions  are necessary but people,  and not just children, have  been seen throwing rocks at  the fish and there was a report  of some young fellows having  been seen with some fish  eggs in a plastic bag and  carrying a fishing rod. As it is  almost impossible to reach  either the Conservation Officer or the Fisheries Officer in  Pender Harbour, anyone seeing this kind of violation  should report it to the RCMP.  Perhaps if a case was taken to  court people might just think  twice about breaking the law.  While on the subject of  creeks, I think the deplorable  state of the bridge crossing  Husdon Creek leading to the  old Tyson property off Tyson  Road should be brought to  the attention of someone in  authority. Since the last heavy  rainfall big holes have appeared in the road bed which  go right down to the creek.  Apart from being a potential  hazard to little children who  may fall in, the road bed  material is going down into  the creek and plugging up the  waterway, causing the water  to back up above the bridge. A  large crack has now appeared  running the length of the so-  called bridge and it looks as  though a complete collapse is  imminent.  Apart from a new bridge  there seems to be no solution  to this one but if the collapse  takes place it could do a great  deal of harm to the creek and  the fish and also to the water  systems of anyone living  below that point on the creek.  Some of us were watching the  coho in the creek up Blower  Road yesterday, the 6th, when  the water suddenly changed  from sparkling clear to a  horrible brown muddy colour.  The fish were there one  minute and gone the next.  We never did see them again.  It turned out that the Regional  Board was trying to fix the  aforementioned bridge and in  doing so had released a whole  lot of sand and gravel into the  creek. We spoke to the fellows  doing the job and pointed out  what was happening but I  don't think they were even  aware that the coho were  there. A major collapse at this  time could have disastrous  repercussions on the creek.  The feeling of frustration  when something like this  occurs and there is no one to  whom it can be reported is  enough to drive .one up the  wall. The ironic thing is that  this- is probably the best run  of coho that there has been in  Husdon Creek for years and  then something like this has to  happen. All we can hope for  now is that the fish have not  spawned yet and that they will  come back after the water has  cleared up.  We should make it clear  here that we are not blaming  the local enforcement officers  for not being available when  required. They can only be in  one place at once. When they  knew about it they took action  immediately. The fault lies  with the Federal and Provincial Governments who  seem to have put these very  important services, the protection of our resources and  the environment, into the  lowest priority category that  can be found and reduced the  manpower down to the minimum.  As I write this I understand  that half the bridge did  collapse last night and that a  temporary one is to be put in  this week-end, I guess there  has to be a disaster before  anything is done these days.  A sad testimony to man's so-  called intelligence.  Sechelt  youth  dies  A fatal motor vehicle  accident was reported in  Sechelt on November 2nd.  Dead is 16-year old Jody Clark  of Sechelt.  Clark was riding a motor  cycle which was in a collision  with a pickup at the intersection of the Hydro access  road behind the forestry  building and Highway 101.  The investigation is continuing.  Cpl. Wade of the Sechelt  police said, "The investigation to date indicates that  there would be no fault or  blame against the driver of the  pickup."  Industrial site paving!

"In addition," said Mr.  LeBlanc, "the moratorium on  the conversion of special,  Indian salmon vessel licenses  will remain in effect." This  new policy will protect the  traditional involvement of  Indians in the salmon fishery.  Due to the overwhelming  need to reduce fleet capacity  in the west coast commercial  fishing industry a buy-back  program similar to the one  which operated in 1970-73 will  be re-established when hinds  are available.  The Minister stated that  due to the poor fishing year in  1980, and the absence of  necessary legislation, a plan to  introduce a landings charge on  commercially-caught salmon  will be delayed, A scheme will  be readied for implementation  in 1982 in the hope that 1981  will bring higher salmon  catches and better prices than  this year.  "To ensure that the Department is able to take all steps  necessary for the rebuilding of  threatened stocks, Pacific  region will be provided with  additional resources for biological and research programs. However, our goals  will not be met by improved  biological capability alone.  Under the Fisheries Act,  the Parliament of Canada has  placed within the power of  the Minister of Fisheries the  right to suspend fishing  privileges and to forfeit gear  and catch. These are extraordinary powers which, when  used with discretion, can  serve as powerful deterrents.  These and other surveillance  and enforcement tools are a  cornerstone for equal fishing  opportunity and henceforth  they will be applied to the  full," said Mr. LeBlanc.  "Recognizing that sound law  and good policy cannot be  supported without strong enforcement capability, I am  seeking additional resources  for this purpose."  The Minister stated that  while the preceding package  should alleviate some serious  salmon   stock   management  problems, it must be seen as  an initial step only. He added,  "If these actions do not  rebuild stocks to the desired  degree, other more stringent  actions will follow."  r  Chimney  Cleaning  & Maintenance  Phone 886-8187  ^  ELECTROHOMB  Sales & Service  SUNSHINE COAST T.V.  885-9816  VLASSIFIFBADS  Come  The Only Way To Go!

Condensation problems arise because air can hold only a limited amount of  water vapour, an amount that varies with temperature, cold air being able to hold less  water than warm air.  When air at a given temperature contains all the water vapour it can hold, it is  said to have a relative humidity of 100 per cent. If it contains only half the water vapour  it can hold at that temperature, then the relative humidity is 50 per cent. If the  temperature cRcinges, bul no water vapour is added or removed, then the relative  humidity will also change and will increase as the temperature falls. The relative  humidity will continue to rise with the falling temperature until the dew point is  reached, lhat is, the temperature at which the relative humidity becomes 100 per cent  (dew point temperature). Any further decrease in temperature will force some of the  vapour lo condense as water, (when the temperature is above freezing), or as frost  fwhen the temperature is below freezing). Air cooled by contact with cold surfaces  such as windows will therefore deposit some of its water vapour on the glass or the  metal sash whenever it has more water vapour than it can hold at its new  temperature. This surface condensation is an indication of excessive water vapour in  the air.  Basically there are two types of problems resulting from the moisture in the air;  those from surface condensation on the interior of the building components, such as  walls, windows, ceilings or floors, and those from concealed condensation within the  building assembly, such as exterior wall cavities and attics. The major factors  contributing to the amount of moisture in the two problem areas, surface or  concealed, are different. Interior surface condensation is caused by high humidity in  the building and can occur even if it is well built. Concealed condensation on the other  hand is caused mainly by the movement of moist air into the building envelope. Water  vapour is also able to diffuse through the materials which make up the building  envelope, but this is generally not as important as air leakage.  PRACTICAL STEPS TO CONTROL SURFACE CONDENSATION  Here are the steps you should take to reduce surface condensation in your  home.  1. If the furnace is equipped with a humidifier or if you operate a separate humidifier,  turn it oft until the amount of condensation is reduced.  2. Crawl spaces under the home should have the floor covered with a watertight  membrane.  3. Use the kitchen exhaust fan while cooking pots are emitting steam.  4. Make certain the clothes dryer is vented to the exterior and not into your home,  the basement or crawl space. Avoid hanging wet clothes inside the house; they  contribute a substantial amount of moisture to the air.  5. The bathroom can be a troublesome area. If the bathroom door is closed during  and after the use of a bath or shower, the excess humidity can be dispersed by:  (a) using a bathroom exhaust fan to the exterior.  (b) using the furnace circulating fan if there is a return air register in the bathroom.  (c) opening the bathroom window until the room is cleared.  If these suggestions are not effective, the bathroom door should be left open after  completion of the bath or shower, and the circulating fan on the furnace run  continuously until the excess humidity is reduced.  6. Leave radiator pans empty until humidity decreases.  7. Install storm windows and storm doors.  8. The free circulation of air is important. Leave drapes open as much as possible so  the air can circulate freely over the windows or put your furnace on circulating fan  for a few hours each day.  9. If necessary you can open your window to reduce localized condensation.  10. Do not leave basement windows open during hot humid weather.  11. Caulk the perimeter of doors and windows to reduce air leakage.  PRACTICAL STEPS TO REDUCE CONCEALED CONDENSATION  1. Ensure that vents in the attic and basement crawl spaces are open and free from  obstruction. In extremely cold regions it may be necessary to have vents that can  be closed during cold dry periods.  2. Seal all holes in the air barrier, i.e. attic hatches, over interior partitions, and  around chimneys, plumbing stacks, and electrical wiring.  3. Increase the attic ventilation.  4. Consult with local specialists.
