 The Sunshine  J-KISLATIVEUBRARV  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  Published on the Sunshine Coast    25* per copy on news stands        February 11,1991     Volume 45      Issue 6  Gospel Rock purchase?  SCRD seeks support from Gibsons  Registered Nurse Sherry Kelly, left, runs the Planned Parenthood  clinic in Lower Gibsons with the help of volunteer Correen Bjorn-  son. ��� Joel Johnstone photo  by Rose Nicholson  A request from the Regional  District for "an expression of  interest and support for the acquisition���of one or more of  the properties owned by Valentine Lands, better known as the  Gospel Rock property, as a  regional park" was treated with  caution by Gibsons Council.  "Our official position is laid  out in our Official Community  Plan (OCP)," said Mayor Eric  Small. "It would be difficult to  take any formal position other  than that at the moment...  "This is a touchy issue. It has  been in and out of the court  several times, we must do things  very precisely.... We have to be  careful we do not back  ourselves into a corner."  Planner Rob Buchan pointed  out that "although the OCP  states that while it is to the community's interests to obtain the  maximum amount of land area  for public use, ...a portion of  the land (Blocks 6 and 7) is  suitable for development purposes. ... An expression of support could be counter to the  OCP."  In a lengthy discussion of the  implications of the word 'support', aldermen carefully attempted to outline the kind of  support they were willing to  give.  "Support or no support,"  pointed out Alderman Ed  Steeves, "we have no control  over who buys land within our  jurisdiction. If the Regional  District wishes to purchase that  land, the only jurisdiction we  have is when they want to  develop it."  "As I understand it," explained Small, "in order to put  the money together to purchase  this land, the Regional District  would be depending on money  from GO grants which would  not be available unless they (the  Regional District) were fully  supported by the Town of Gibsons."  "If the Regional District was  able to get the money  together,"   added   Alderman  Margaret Morrison, "and make  an offer to the owner of the  land, ���wouldn't that be great?  Why shouldn't we do  everything to promote such an  intent?"  Aldermen decided that they  were unwilling to commit the  town to any financial assistance  for the plan, but had "no objection to the proposed purchase  of Block 6 and 7 by the SCRD  and would entertain an application for rezoning to park on a  portion of the land."  Year 2000 forum  outlines school's program  Birth control clinic open  by Stuart Burnside  Although there may well be  those who would not make the  organization welcome, Planned  Parenthood has arrived on the  Sunshine Coast. Quietly, and  with no fanfare, the Sunshine  Coast Planned Parenthood  Clinic (SCPPC) opened its  doors four months ago in  Lower Gibsons (al the Coast-  Garibaldi Health Centre) to  provide area residents with information and assistance for  preventing and dealing with unwanted pregnancies.  Asked about the SCPPC's  philosophy, Clinic Supervisor  Sherry Kelly said, "We advocate informed decision making," which comes about, added Kelly, "through educating  clinic clients on the various  forms of birth control  available."  Kelly said the clinic's services  were available to anyone,  regardless of age or sex, and  that parental consent 'was not a  necessity. When asked about  the possibility of very young  clients seeking assistance from  the SCPPC, Kelly said, "We do  our best to make sure that those  seeking information about birth  control (if sexually active) are  sexually active of their own free  will." She noted that if clients  are young, sexually active  teenagers then it may be more  important that their lives not be  affected by an unplanned  pregnancy.  Kelly, herself a parent, said  that there are times when she  has to hold her parental feelings  in check (due to the youth-  fulness of a client), but the clinic  is not supposed to dictate  morality. "It's just to provide  information, education, and  alternatives to pregnancy."  Kelly is quick 10 slate that  providing abortions is not a  function of the SCPPC. She  noted that much of the controversy over Planned Parenthood stems from the perceived  association with American  Planned Parenthood clinics,  many of which do provide on-  site abortion services.  All clinics, according to Kelly, belong to an umbrella  organization, but clinic philosophies differ greatly from  country to country, province to  province, and even clinic to  clinic. While Canadian clinics  may recommend abortions in  special instances, not one practises the procedure on site.  As for the staffing of the  SCPPC, Kelly assured the  Coast News that, while  "volunteers are the backbone of  the clinic" there is always a  medical doctor and a registered  nurse on duty during clinic  hours; 7 to 9 pm, Thursday  evenings.  According lo Kelly, the clinic  is funded entirely through dona  tions and annual memberships  (the government stopped its  funding in 1984). She said the  annual membership of $10 was  a sign of support for the concept of Planned Parenthood as  well as support for local  facilities; $8 out of every annual  membership goes toward local  facilities.  Kelly said that she would like  to see Planned Parenthood  facilities expanded on the Coast  to include Sechelt and Pender  Harbour, but there isn't���al  present���enough funding. She  is also planning to extend the  hours of the present facility in  Gibsons (to meet an ever growing demand), but this, too, is  dependent on additional funding.  The clinic phone number is  885-7770, and Kelly pointed out  that, although the clinic is housed in the Coast-Garibaldi  Health Centre, that is the extent  of their mutual involvement.  by Joel Johnstone  What will the world be like  ten years from now and what  educational tools will students  need to survive beyond the year  2000?  These are but two of the  questions parents were asked to  consider as part of the School  District's Year 2000 Forum held  at Chatelech Secondary School  last Wednesday.  The crowd of parents and  teachers numbering well over  200 were regaled by a "recital"  from Trustee Maureen Clayton,  Administrator Clifford Smith  and Elphinstone teacher/-  counsellor Bill Forst.  They were urged to think of  the changes the world has gone  through in their lifetime, the  Ibersonal challenges they had  been called upon to face.  On that note, those in attendance were assigned to one of  four workshops, whereupon  teacher-facilitators began  discussion on the Intermediate  Year 2000 Program. This innovative project from the  Ministry of Education will alter  how students are taught, what  they are taught, and will place  more emphasis on individual  needs of students in hopes of  promoting a disposition  towards lifelong learning.  The Intermediate Program  Manual which all schools now  have contains "more questions  than answers", said facilitator  Mike Metcalfe at the workshop  attended by the Coast News.  While the manual is available  for public perusal, it is participation in the development of  the program itself that is being  emphasized.  "It is our hope that answers  are something we'll develop  cooperatively," Metcalfe said  optimistically.  Teaching strategies are being  worked out through Parent Advisory Councils (PAC's) in each  teaching community as set up  for the Primary Program in  1990. Through PAC's and  larger District Forums, such as  this one, and by the participation in questionnaires in the  manual and the polling of  parents throughout the district,  decisions will be arrived at as to  just how the Intermediate Program  will  come  into  being.  These decisions will evolve  through the accumulated input  of parents, students, district  staff, teachers and administrators.  Some teachers expressed concerns that time was not being  adequately created for teachers  to "workshop" in the same  fashion as parents. In fact,  some parents, though finding  the workshops "encouraging"  and "a great idea" also found  the time given over to them to  be brief.  "We were just getting into it  and the evening came to an  end...that's too bad," said one  of the few men in attendance.  There was a general consensus, though, that participation  in setting up a teaching program  aimed at the emotional, social,  physical, intellectual, aesthetic  and artistic development of  students is the right direction to  take education in what will be  an information and technology-  dominant era.  Marcorp mall closer  by Rose Nicholson  Gibsons Council has conditionally approved the extension  of the town's boundaries to include the Marcorp development. The matter will now be  forwarded to Ministry of  Municipal Affairs where it is expected that an internal referral  process will ultimately lead to  provincial acceptance.  At the February 5 Council  meeting, Planner Rob Buchan  recommended that aldermen  approve Marcorp's application  "on a conditional basis."  Council approved the conditions recommended by Buchan  which would require that the  water supply for the project be  supplied   from  the   Regional  District via the existing six inch  water main on Payne Road, or,  if Gibsons' water supply was used, Marcorp would be financially responsible for its upgrading.  Municipal engineers would  have to be assured that there  would be sufficient capacity in  the town's sewage and sanitary  facilities. Also required would  be an upgrade of the intersection of Highway 101 and  Pratt/Payne Road, on a 50-50  cost sharing basis between the  Ministry of Highways and the  town, with Marcorp paying the  town's share.  Marcorp will be limited lo  one access from their property  to the highway; and they will be  expected to provide a letter indemnifying the town from any  liability incurred if "subsequent  research dictates that the  Municipality should not proceed with the consummation of  the boundary extension."  Marcorp representative Mary  Lynn Nicodemus told aldermen  her company was satisfied with  the conditions laid down by  Council. She went on to say that  among the many advantages the  project would bring to the town  would be the 45000 man hours  il would take to complete the  building project, wilh most of  the work going to local crews.  When completed, the development is expected to provide 200  permanent and part-time jobs  from 30 small businesses.  Real hard news  An anonymous Coast News reporter (being unwilling to  admit she was negligent enough to leave her car lights on),  was rescued by two gallant members of the Sechelt Volunteer  Fire Department last week.  It was a stormy, dreary Sunday and with no help in sight,  these two good Samaritans appeared magically out of the  mist and rain.  A jump start was quickly and effectively administered lo  the seemingly terminal 12-volt, and the reporter went on her  way rejoicing. Many thanks guys!  "Calypso night"  The Gibsons Yacht Club will hold a fund-raising buffet  and dance on Saturday, February 16 at the Gibsons Motor  Inn. The theme will be "Calypso Night" and, appropriately,  will feature a steel band, Caribbean cuisine and dress.  The "Happy Hour" will run from 7 to 9 pm, with Ihe buffet following from 8 to 10 pm. The remainder of the evening  will be devoted to dancing���Ihe Limbo predominating,  natch!

We  think this is a smashing idea, albeit one a little tardy in germinating. Nevertheless we hope that somehow this project  can be realized, given the demonstrated love and affection  so many coast residents have for "the rock"���to say  nothing of ihe sensitive ecological nature of the area.  There are three crucial questions involved here. Will  developer Hayden Killam even consider selling the property���and al what asking price? Apparently no one had gotten around to asking him at this point. Second, can the  SCRD afford to purchase the land on its own? Apparently  not. Which brings us to ihe last question. Is it possible for  the SCRD, in co-operative concert with other interested  parties, to band together and make this enterprise more  than just wishful thinking?  The answer is yes. It can be done. But it will take an  enormous effort expended over a relatively short period of  time. Mr. Killam bought the land for purposes of development and one could nol expect him to sit on it on the off  chance lhat he might realize a fair profit while looking like  something akin to a hero in the bargain.  So wc urge all concerned parties to press on with this  cause with all due speed, co-operation, and a minimum of  rhetoric, parochialism and soul-searching. It's a great idea  whose time is come���and going.  Thumbs up?  There arc those huddling in the crow's nest of the B.C.  ship of siate, watching the unruly seas of economic  dislocation and recession, plaintively bleating that our province is "recession-proof."  Well, Bob Dylan once observed that you don't need a  weatherman to know which way the wind blows.  The sign of the times we're referring lo, one available to  the economics slide rule set and ordinary Joe alike, is the  startling increase in ihe number of hitchhikers to be found  thumbing it up and down Ihe coast.  For the most pan, people hitchhike due to the lack of a  car, the inability to come up with the coin needed to repair  a car, insufficient funds to insure a car, and even the want  of a fin or a sawbuck for a few litres of gas.  Few hitchhike for the sheer adventure of it anymore. So  aside from slopping to offer a ride 10 some deserving soul  when the liming is right, one might give a thought to the  fact that each and every hitchhiker is a living, breathing  rebuke to those of the political Limousine Class who claim  as ihey tool along in recession-proof comfort:  "You've never had it so good!"  -from our files ���  We Remember When  S YEARS AGO  The eventual logging of the southwest face of Mount  Elphinstone came under the scrutiny of Gibsons' planner Rob Buchan who is concerned that increased run off  due to logging upslope could endanger the proposed  Gibsons bypass.  The slopes are now re-grown with valuable second  growth fir which will be close to 100 years old by the  time it is logged.  10 YEARS AGO  "This building Is a tribute to the council and the town  of Sechelt," said Mayor Bud Koch, pictured in the Coast  News at the official opening of the new Municipal Mall  on the occasion of Sechelt's 25th anniversary.  Stuart Lefeaux, Parks consultant to the Sunshine  Coast Regional District, presented the completed  Regional Parks Study to the regional board last Thursday night and warned the board: "If you're going to  leave any heritage for your children, you have to move  now because it's going crazy."  20 YEARS AGO  Under the new presidency of Larry Labonte the Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce offered their  support to organizations involved in combatting the  drug menace in this area.  30 YEARS AGO  A house built In 1912 by the founder of Gibsons Landing, George Gibson, situated next to the Coast News  office, was put to the torch on advice from council for  the practice of fireflghting by local volunteer firemen.  40 YEARS AGO  Port Mellon, a pulp and paper manufacturing town  complete with plant, has been sold to Canadian Forest  Products. BC Bridge and Dredging Company Ltd. are  now renovating and preparing the plant for operation  and the opening Is set for May.  More than B0 lots owned by Union Steamship Company will be turned back to acreage according to a company spokesman. Stretching out from the Sechelt  Tearoom to Norm Burley's property, the reversion will  cancel out the area known as Teredo Street.  The Sunshine  mm mm  Pubii.h.d by GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Canada: 1 Y..r US; e Monlha 130; Foreign 1 Year 140  Office    Anne Thomsen  Dee Grant  Like Butch and Sundance  Nine months ago almost to  the day, I caught sight of this  squiggly finger of coastline called the Sunshine Coast for the  first time, and for reasons only  partially available to my conscious processes, now seems the  right moment to reflect briefly*  on what has gone since.  I was elated and petrified  ���often simultaneously���as  Denise and I trekked north  from LA in our two-car caravan  cum kcnnel-on-wheels. After 20  years hunkered down at  Ground Zero of a megalopolis,  1 was in the midst of up-rooting  and relocating to a place whose  total population was smaller  than our community of North  Hollywood which, itself, was  scarcely a raisin in the pudding  sprawl called Lotus Land by the  cynical.  To compound my existential  terror, I was committing my  foreseeable future to a place, an  environs upon which I had  never set eyes���not even via a  post card. Denise had spent  roughly eight hours sussing out  the Coast on her own, and so I  was in the position Butch and  Sundance found themselves  when, shaking in their boots  atop that cliff with the posse  thundering up from behind,  they had nothing to draw on but  faith.  They jumped and so did I. It  was probably harder for them  than it was for me. Denise and I  have been saddle partners long  enough to pretty much intuit  what we'll both like or be turned off by, while Butch and the  Kid had barely sorted out their  living arrangements with  (Catherine Ross by the time they  were cut down in that hail of  bullets.  So when Denny told me how  beautiful, how damn near  perfect the Coast was, I had no  trouble believing her. When she  said she knew���somehow,  don't ask���that I'd be okay  with the biblical rations of rain  the area was (arguably) blessed  with, I wobbled slightly, but  believed. And when she swore  that our second major purchase  upon moving to the Coast  would be a boat���I jumped off  that internal precipice and  straight into the most delightful  and disconcerting phase of  culture shock I'd experienced  since first moving to Los  Angeles from Toronto back in  '69.  What many people seem not  to appreciate is that culture  shock can be���and usually  is���both positive and negative,  with the polarities often being  wickedly intermixed. The  'locals' motion appears quaintly  slowed to an amble, something  that brings a smile of appreciation to the soul of the citified  newcomer. That is, until he or  she feels the old addictive tug of  the artificially over-stimulated  urban adrenaline asserting itself  and suddenly rendering the neat  old dude putting along in front  of you���an obstacle. A frustration.  It is claimed that babies and  cubs of all species are wrought  so unspeakably adorable to help  ensure their survival and well-  being. The wonder and magnetism of the very young is a  very serious form of protection.  And the young inevitably pay  the price, but hopefully not until they've gained their sea legs.  The same seems to hold true  for the particular kind of  culture shock I, and I would imagine others, have experienced  subsequent to moving to this  most alluring, captivating in-  terpenetration of land and  water.  It is a euphoria plain and  simple���if, indeed, there is such  a beast���which grips one upon  arrival on the Sunshine Coast.  A euphoria which temporarily  blinds one to many realities  which must ultimately become  apparent, that is unless one has  come here only for a brief sojourn.  This euphoria is not solely induced by the ambience of the  Coast, by the cornucopia of  Nature's treats for the senses, or  the still amazingly rural pace of  many of the resident folk. No,  this euphoria is also compounded of one's own personal  dreams, imaginings, expectations, and needs.  I needed to believe that I  would somehow cast off and  leave behind me in Los Angeles  those aspects of myself I didn't  especially care for; strip down  and stroll in to the promised  land of Gibsons, Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay, Pender Harbour,  Egmont and points even further  north naked as a jaybird and  cleansed to the point where I  was again a small child drinking  in the wonder.  But not having to make a living. Not having to wrestle with  those nasty, irascible Jan  Michael Shermans who seemed  to disappear completely the moment I set foot on the ferry,  scrambled to the upper deck,  and promptly was seized by the  most inexplicable desire to jump  up onto the rail, spread my  arms, and launch myself  straight out.  Just like Butch and Sundance.  How do I love thee?  ��  How do I love thee? let me count the ways,  I love thee to the depth and breadth and height  My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight  For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.  I love thee to the level of every day's  Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.  I love thee freely, as men strive for right;  I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.  I love thee with the passion put to use  In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.  I love thee with a love I seemed to lose  With my lost saints���I love thee with the breath.  Smiles, tears, of all my life!���and, if God choose,  I shall but love thee better after death.  Elizabeth Barrett Browning  In A Nutshell  Smooth talking specialist  by S. Nutter  The other day on the radio I  heard my first 'Speech Pathologist'. This was not the same  as hearing one's first corncrake  or rosy breasted til, but it  registered.  I guess I had heard the term  before but had supposed that  this type of specialist would be  caught up with concerns about  stutterers or people struck  dumb with traumas or whatever. Not so this speech  pathologist. He was all caught  up with concerns about politics.  He did make it clear, mind  you, that he was non-partisan.  A non-partisan political enthusiast. A bird that is of quite a  different feather. All this came  clear, sort of, when he talked of  politics as being cut up into two  parts: 'content' and 'presentation'.  This 'content' he spoke of in  a quite denigrating way I  thought, and indeed he referred  to it as little as he could  manage. He came out in fact  with a Harper's Magazine type  statistic, saying that he had  heard from 'L.A.* (Los Angeles  is apparently a center of speech  pathology) that in North  America today 'content' is less  than 20 per cent of politics and  'presentation' is all the rest. He  was obviously quite happy with  this idea.  What he does obviously, with  all his professional lore, is coach  aspiring, and indeed, leading  politicians in precisely how to  make out with the 80 per cent of  politics which is untrammelled,  it seems, by any problem of  'content'.  A happy man, you might expect, if you come to think of it.  You don't have to write the  speeches, just tell these lads how  to enunciate, how to breathe in  an apparently natural manner,  how to know where is camera  two, how to project that gleam  in the eye at the right moment,  how not to wave their arms as if  they were drowning etc.  Nice, clean, 'professional'  type stuff right? Nothing to do  with the script (the so-called  'content'). That's only 20 per  cent after all. Keep your  shoulders straight but not stiff.  Work every morning at your  mirror to get an intelligent look  in your eye.  This particular expert I  heard, a jovial chap, was on  early morning CBC radio. I had  it on as usual as background for  starting up a new day, and so  missed his name and any particular reason he may have had  for being on. However, it was  the morning after our Premier  had delivered his well publicized  'State of the Province' address,  followed by a 45 minute  'meeting with the Press'.  I had been, not just  dismayed, but really absolutely  appalled by this performance,  both on the part of our Premier,  but also by our Press. I expect  that anyone who reads this page  will   have  seen  this  almost  ultimate gaucherie. Really, is it  possible not to feel ashamed?  When it trickled through to  me that this jolly guru type I  was half listening to on the  radio was in fact talking about  this disaster of the night before,  I got the impression that he was  some kind of a mentor of our  Premier, and possibly of other  leading politicians of different  stripes.  He was being asked how he  would 'mark' the Premier on  his performance, and the implication was strong that he  would do this as a teacher to a  student. How would he mark  him then on rhetoric and  general professional presentation flim-flammery?  Well he received, you see,  very good marks, and the Press  too; which just goes to show  you, or me at any rate, that between certain professionals and  this particular layman there exists a probably unbridgeable  rift.  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper  %iii^^0gr  mm Coast News, February 11,1991  ^LettetL. to* ttu, CdJtot Nobodv's Per,ect  Reasoned case made for passenger ferry  Editor:  I've been distressed, over the  last few months, at the loud  voices of our local politicians,  raised in opposition to a  passenger-only ferry service  from the Sunshine Coast to  Vancouver.  An argument that I frequently hear is that "people want to  take their cars". Well, no doubt  they do.  As a regular commuter, I  often find myself looking for  some excuse to take my car. We  all like the comfort and convenience of our own vehicles.  However, one of the major environmental and economic problems of the Lower Mainland is  that there are too many cars on  the roads there.  It won't help solve any of the  Lower Mainland's problems if,  as demanded by many Coast  politicians, we have an  augmented car ferry service that  dumps even more cars onto the  overcrowded streets of the  Lower Mainland.  People of the Sunshine Coast  are obviously concerned about  our environment. The few  recycling facilities that exist are  heavily used. Any attempt by  public agencies or industries to  use pesticides or other potentially obnoxious chemicals is  resisted to the full. Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper is constantly  scrutinized by the public to  make sure it is meeting its environmental responsibilities.  We agonize over the need for  clear-cut logging, even though  many of our friends and  neighbours depend on logging  for their livelihoods. All this is  probably as it should be.  I find it very hard to believe  politicians' claims that these  same people would refuse to use  a passenger-only ferry, and that  they demand the right to take  even more polluting, space-  hogging vehicles into the Lower  Mainland.  Obviously, there are concerns  to be met. More planning is  needed. Where should a passenger ferry land on the Sunshine  Coast? I'd like to see it near my  place, in Langdale. Others  would probably like to see it  farther up the Coast. In fact  though, why couldn't it have a  couple of terminals? Couldn't  there be a morning commuter  run that picks people up  somewhere in the Sechelt area,  makes a stop in the Gibsons-  Langdale area and then heads  for Bowen Island?  I wonder also if a commuter  ferry couldn't make a couple of  stops in Burrard Inlet. Perhaps  there could be one at the North  Shore Seabus terminal and one  at   the   downtown   terminal.  Public transportation from the  Seabus terminals is pretty good.  Certainly commuters like myself, who normally catch a bus  in Horseshoe Bay, would be no  worse off catching one from a  Seabus terminal.  Then it, or course, the issue  of cost.  Terminals would have to be  built or modified, and I find it  hard to believe that the service  could operate without subsidy.  But why not subsidy? The car  ferries are heavily subsidized.  BC Ferries is about to spend  what I can only assume will be  hundreds of thousands of  dollars to build more parking in  Horseshoe Bay. The fares we  pay for buses from Horseshoe  Bay to Vancouver don't even  cover half the actual cost of  running them. Those of us who  drive our cars from Horseshoe  Bay get an invisible subsidy  through road maintenance  costs, costs of policing the  highways, medical costs incurred through pollution-related illnesses, and on and on.  Perhaps some of these subsidies would be more efficiently  spent on a passenger ferry.  We'll always need the car  ferry. I take a car across myself,  more frequently than I should.  I'd take my car a lot less,  though, if there was a good  passenger ferry service.  Peter A. Ronning  Editor:  1 would like to express my  disappointment upon reading  the January 28 issue Coast  News. Enclosed in a box on  your cover page is a very nice  picture of our new paper  machine along with one of our  employees. However, the article  which falls beneath, and appears inside the same box, has  absolutely nothing to do with  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper.  This mill does not do "open  pit burning". However, to a  reader who is unfamiliar with  our organization it would appear that we are and have been  Doing double-burn  for some time "open pit burning". Normally these two articles appearing on the same  page would not be a problem,  but when they are presented in  this manner it is extremely  misleading to the public.  Clarification of the association noted above should be  made in your next publication.  D.J. Stuart  Mill Manager  Howe Sound Pulp  and Paper Ltd.  Editor's Note: An unfortunate  error  in  layout  led   to  the  misleading juxtaposition. Please  accept our apologies.  Not proud to be Canadian  Editor:  I'm not proud to be a Canadian at this moment in history. I  believe that our government's  decision in committing our  armed forces to an aggressive  role in the present Gulf crisis  was wrong. But, I am proud to  have chosen as my home a community that supports a  newspaper like the Coast News.  In publishing the letters from  Mac Richardson, C.F. Beeman,  and Robert S. Rodvik, as well  as the report from the peace  committee in Jordan, you are  providing a vehicle for those of  us who challenge "news" from  US media sources.  I respect the opinions of  readers like Mr. Hovestad who  decry the invasion of Kuwait  with the accompanying human  rights violations. But I ask, why  Kuwait, if il is nol because oil  interests are at stake? Why was  Shame on war protesters  there no aggressive move from  the US when Indonesia invaded  East Timor or when China annexed Tibet? When have wc  ever had a report from ihe US  media about the Nicaraguan  babies who died because the US  government slopped the shipment of pans for medical equipment in Nicaraguan hospitals?  This is a conflict lhal can  make ihe most lofty of idealists  cynical.  Shirley Hall  Editor:  This is the second time I've  read in the Pender Harbour column of the Coast News that it's  a good time now to burn the  brush you have in your yard.  This person must be living a  hundred years back, when the  houses were very far apart and  no one would notice the smoke.  In recent years, great effort is  being put forth to keep  pollutants out of the air���for  people's own good.  When a beautiful spring day  comes, why spoil it with smoke?  You can do other things with  the brush. I believe that those  people who make brush fires  want to choke and kill their  neighbours. Is that you?  ViTyner  Editor:  Re: Letter, January 21,  "Satan is laughing." What utter  nonsense, from a teacher yet.  The US, Canada and other  countries held talks with Saddam. All failed, he is a Hitler,  look what he did to his own Iraqi Kurds, he gassed villages of  children and babies.  Now we have crowds of people, crawling out of the woodwork, under the guise of peace,  they are causing riots, blocking  traffic and camping in Government buildings. What they are  really doing is selling  newspapers. Our Canadians in  the Gulf are reading this, so  much for your support.  I was angry with a remark  that Canada's involvement in  this war will tarnish Canada's  image as peacemakers. I  wouldn't say that with the FLQ  crisis, the Oka crisis and the bad  blood in Quebec re: separation,  that Canada is a peace loving  nation.  I would say use all the hours  of peace marching, get off the  streets and do something  positive. We have street kids,  homeless, drug and alcohol problems that need volunteers.  Put the media hype on the  back shelf and proudly support  our forces in the Gulf. Shame  on you thai don't.

Torrential  warm rains have melted the  snow and both are now competing in a great flowing race to  the sea. The power is evident by  the sound of the roar. The  waters in areas have grabbed for  the land, washing leaves and  needles along and seeking to expose roots clinging for dear life.  This is common weather here in  the winter.  News from a neighbour up  creek, has made me aware of an  individual running a skidder  through Joe Smith Creek (and  two other creekbeds close by) in  his zeal to clearcut the trees on  his 10 acre parcel. Since there  are no regulations locally for  logging on private property, our  watersheds are extremely  vulnerable to abuse. Not only  are creeks being physically  deformed but gas, hydraulic  fluid, and oil spills further compromise water purity.  There are currently 22 water  license holders on Joe Smith  Creek, enough to qualify it to  be designated a community  watershed. Doing so adds  strength to efforts to protect it.  If you are drawing water from a  creek, it is extremely important  at this time to register for a  water license at the local  government office.  The watersheds around  Flume, Clough and Wilson  creeks are scheduled to be clear-  cut this spring. Maps of the  cutblocks will be on display at  the Roberts Creek Library until  Tuesday, February 12. The  group Forest Watch will be  discussing alternatives to clear-  cutting at the meeting Wednesday, February 13, at 8 pm, at  the Hall. A horse logger is  scheduled to speak.

The eighties saw people announcing their affections in  newspaper ads. Something like  the gents of the 15th century,  who drew names and wore the  lady's name on his clothing on  St. Valentine's Day.  Back in the pre-Christian  Roman times, a sort of pagan  love lottery took place. On the  festival of Lupercalia, an urn  was set up in the village square  where the young maidens dropped their names, printed on parchment, into the urn. The  Roman swains drew out a name  and the resulting match called  for a year of dating. This was  done on February 15.  The town fathers decided to  tone down the revels, and the  Christians moved the feast day  to February 14, a day on which  a bishop named Valentine was  beheaded in 270 AD. The urn  remained, much like the early  grade school box in which we  dropped our valentine cards.  Does all of this mean that we  can lose our heads on February  14 like the good Bishop?  The first paper valentine has  been traced to 16th century  England while the first printed  valentine seems to have been the  frontispiece of The Valentine  Writer, a book of verses printed  in 1669 to help the tongue-tied  phrase their declarations of  love.  In the 1700's, another book  of verse for the love smitten was  printed, entitled "The Young  Man's Valentine Writer" and it  was followed a few years later  by a book for young ladies.  Homemade cards of the  1700's were real works of art,  painted, pin-pricked, lacy cut-  work with hand-lettered flowery  sentiments in verse.  The commercial valentines  came into being about 1800 with  hand-painted copper plates,  wood cuts, then lithographs and  some with ornate frames.  In the 1840's, a young college  student from Worcester,  Massachusetts, received a lacy  paper valentine from England.  Esther Howland was so impressed that she decided to  create her own cards. She opened a plant in her home town  where she and her assistants  pasted hearts, flowers and  doves on embossed blanks she  imported from Germany. She  has the title of Mother of the  Greeting Card Industry.  The frilly cards were replaced  with mechanical cards made in  Germany and these were quite  popular around the turn of the  century.  Today's traditions lean more  toward chocolate, with the newly rediscovered aphrodisiacal  charms or colorful spring  flowers as declarations of love  and friendship.  The greeting card industry  should thank Esther Howland  for starting an industry that has  the biggest sales on St. Valentine's Day.  Knock on a heart���send a  valentine to a friend!  There is one thing we have to  get serious about, and that is  Crafts! There is nothing chiseled in stone that says a woman  should be crafts chairwoman  ���chairman���chairperson. An  accommodation could be made  by having a man chair this position and then there could be two  co-chairs���one for the women's  end, and a man for the carpentry side. Anything that meets  the need. There has to be someone in charge, the keeper of  the keys, or we won't be having  crafts any more. This is one task  where you can get on the job  training.  On Wednesday, February 13,  Powell River Seniors' Branch  will be our guests for lunch and  the Regional Meeting. Our  regular meeting will be  February  21,   with  a  guest  speaker from Hospice.

His outstanding photographs of hummingbirds were featured in the  Beautiful British Columbia  magazine last year. Mr.  Hagenlund will speak about and  show slides of hummingbirds  and other wonders of nature on  the Sunshine Coast.  Bring your coffee mug and  enjoy some of Edith's cookies!  Ideas will be welcomed about a  proposed bird watching field  day that the Sechelt Marsh  Society would like to hold in  Pender Harbour. Folks can also  bring old blankets, towels,  sleeping bags, etc. This would  be useful for the Wildlife  Rehabilitation Centre in Halfmoon Bay. There, the sick and  injured wildlife are rescued,  cared for and released.  MUSIC SOCIETY  The next event sponsored by  the Pender Harbour Music  Society is "Words and Music",  an evening at the music school  located in Madeira Park. In the  candlelight atmosphere, pop  standards will be played by the  Les Fowler Trio, along with  new poetry written by some of  our local poets.  This year, reading their own  poetry will be Melissa Charbon-  neau, first-time reader Betty  Scott, and some poets that you  already know, Colleen Fielder,  Theresa Kishkan and Jay Hamburger. These evenings have  proven to be a great hit. Tickets  will be available soon at Miss  Sunny's in Madeira Park. Purchase price will be $5 and $6.  "Words and Music" begins at  7:30 pm, February 22. For more  information, please phone Colleen Fielder, 883-2174.  HYDRAULIC DERRICK?  If you would like to voice  your opinion either way, this  petition is posted outside the  wharfinger office and the  Fisheries and Oceans office in  Madeira Park. The petition  reads as follows: Harbour users  of Madeira Park public dock,  High school confidential  by Chris Jackson  Well, what is going on at  Chatelech anyway? Those kids  must be doing something, bul  what? Well, let's all find out  what goes on at the top of that  very steep hill that looks over  Sechelt like an Eagle.  For starters, on January 29,  the Grade 8 elective rotations  went into full effect. If you were  in Metalwork you would change  to Foods and Nutrition. If you  were already in Foods and  Nutrition, you would change to  Keyboarding; or if you were in  Keyboarding, you would  change to Metalwork.  On February 12, there will be  a Valentine's Video Dance in  our gym. Tickets are $5 each  and we are allowed to bring "invites", but certain rules apply.  Dances are always on a school  night to prevent alcohol and  drug related accidents; the Vice-  | Principal, Jim McGowan, sear  ches every individual for alcohol  and drugs to prevent any problems.  This past weekend, the Senior  Boys Basketball team travelled  to Barrier in the interior of BC  to participate in the Barrier  Cougar Classic Tournament.  Despite their losses they gained  a great deal of valuable experience. In their second game,  they battled for fourth place  and were narrowly defeated by  two points. Congratulations to  the team members and their  coach, Ms Mahlman, for winning the most sportsmanlike  award!  On February 1 and 2, Coach  Fox and the wrestling team  travelled to Vancouver Island to  the Port Alberni invitational  meet. The students placed very  well and are to be congratulated  on their fine performances. Out  of over 400 participants, Alex  Albrecht came fifth in his  weight   category,   Darren  Caldwell sixth, and Gresham  Smith seventh. Coach Fox commended the team members for  their excellent participation  both on and off the mats.  The Chatelech Ski Club is going to Whistler for three days in  March. They leave on Tuesday,  March 5, and will be staying  two nights at the Fireside  Lodge, returning the following  Thursday. The students will  take lessons in the morning and  have the afternoon to ski with  each other.  your input is requested. Are you  in favour of an electric  hydraulic derrick to be operated  at a moderate user cost with a  key-lock system for regular harbour users with other user participation? The estimated total  cost of this project is $17,000,  amortized over 20 years. Please  fill in the information below.  There is a spot on the petition  for your name and CFV  number also.  POOL NEWS  February 11 to 15, you can  dance for heart,���raise funds  and enjoy a healthy heart doing  fitness all week at the Pender  Harbour Aquatic and Fitness  Centre.

Special two for the price  of one and that same evening a  fitness blitz will start from 6:30  to 8 pm. Have a super time!  AS THE TIDE CHANGES  Last week, Pender Harbour  received three and a half inches  of rain. We can always be  thankful it wasn't snow!  A reminder that Larry Barnes  will be performing on Saturday,  February 16, at the Legion  Branch 112. Come one, come  all to a super St. Valentine's  Dance.  Until next week, be good to  yourself.  Pender Harbour  Teen Centre  by Stuart  Pender Harbour needs help  locating facilities for a teen centre in the Madeira Park-Garden  Bay area. The teen centre, long  recognized as a need by teens,  parents and concerned citizens,  would provide a recreational/social atmosphere supported in a drug and alcohol  free environment.  In June of 1990, in an effort  to establish the idea as worthy,  the Parents' Group of Pender  Harbour Secondary School applied to the provincial government for a grant of $7000. The  grant was approved and a committee was formed through the  Pender Harbour Secondary  School (PHSS) to ascertain the  needs and interests of Pender  Harbour teens.  According to PHSS Principal  Dave Watt, the committee  surveyed his school and, besides  almost 100 per cent student enthusiasm for the project, found  that "food and music" topped  the list of teen interests.  Also making the list were arcade games and pool tables,  dart boards etc. The variety of  equipment and furnishings for  the facility would require that  the facility be designated for the  centre on a flexible, full-time  basis. The nights it would actually be used by teens,  however, would probably be  Friday and Saturday.  Marg Gooldrup, one of the  driving forces and spokesman  for the project says, "All the  leads we've had so far on  suitable locations have been  dead ends." She said the "last  resort possibility" was using the  school until a better location  could be found, but the  teenagers didn't like the idea of  spending their free time at  school.  Gooldrup said she hoped and  expected that the funding for  the centre would come from the  community once the centre was  established and proved itself  successful. She mentioned that  the agency that had originally  provided the $7000 grant had  since been dissolved, but was  optimistic that once the teen  centre was "up and running",  additional government money,  from another source, could  easily be found.  Ideas for the teen centre can  be relayed to Marg Gooldrup in  the evenings at 883-2567.

First, the mountains  are very steep, and second,  there has been a LOT of clear-  cut logging on their slopes.  Forest industry officials can try,  until they're blue in the face, to  tell us that clearcut logging  poses little or no threat to the  environment, but all I have to  do is look out my window to see  two brand new landslides,  created during last week's  downpours, directly below  clearcut areas.  When the logging company  began logging above our place,  we had our chance to speak out  and, dumbly, said nothing.  After all, for more than a  decade, we have earned our living replanting these areas; at the  time it seemed hypocritical to us  to stand up and denounce the  logging. We know the logging  company has a ten year plan to  extend the bare belt all along the  east side of the inlet to join up  with the Killam Bay cutblock.  (Egmonsters may or may not  be aware of the fact that the  land logged in Killam Bay was  given over to the logging company in exchange for some deal  over Expo lands.) We have been  told by an employee of the logging company that the creek we  draw our domestic water from  has a class D priority, ie; none  at all. Who are we, the only  residents along the way, to try  and alter the course of big  business?  The person in charge of all  this logging directly above us  politely visited us one day to let  us know that "they" would  "try" to keep our water supply  free of debris, but that they  would definitely be logging right  through the creek. Period. If we  had any other questions or  problems we were to feel free to  contact him at his office, etc.  etc.  Over the last few years, for  two months every spring and  fall, we have had the helicopter  team required to haul the logs  off the perilously steep mountains working practically on our  doorstep. Seven days a week,  from dawn until dusk, we had  one large helicopter, one small  helicopter, a sidewinder, a crew  boat and assorted other  machinery, all competing with  each other to make an enormous amount of noise.  Folks would drop by just to  view this spectacle. We were  assured that the helicopters  would not be flown directly  over us so instead they buzzed  all around us, occasionally passing by right in front of our windows.  Last fall, by some miracle,  the logging company was  unable to get around to the  work above us, so we have been  able to enjoy a whole year of  peace and quiet.

I'll tell him how the run-off in  our creek last fall was so bad it  was like a mud volcano erupting. Huge logs were hurled  down into the inlet like  toothpicks. Then 1 can point to  the two new gashes in the  mountainside and ask him if we  can expect our insignificant  home to be buried soon. Or  maybe one night we will accidentally run our boat into the  anchored boom sticks they leave  lurking, year round, directly in  the path to our dock.  Either way, it's a sorry situation, so while I'm writing to my  MP to tell him what I think, I'll  be sure to include my thoughts  on the current logging practices  going on here, right in our own  backyard. It's too late for us to  get any action out of it but, in  some tiny way, it might affect  future decisions and that alone  is worth the effort.  On a more festive note, St.  Valentine's Day is this week, so  for anyone prone to forgetting  important dates (this includes  you, dear husband) this Thursday is February 14. Unfortunately, we are without a social  convenor at this time so there  will not be a Valentine's Tea. Is  there anyone out there up to the  task for a St. Patrick's Day  Tea?  If you like to shoot pool, the  Backeddy Pub is where you  should be headed on Sundays.  All day, the pool table is free of  charge, so pop in and check out  the competition.

IO-30-4pm   I  Book Drop in Trail Bay Mall  ���mn  GIBSONS  Hug-a-bears big hit with kids  by George Cooper, 8864520  When the policeman attends  some distressful occurrence, he  may find a child who is painfully uneasy or frightened. A  fire in the home, perhaps, or an  accident where someone he  knows lies injured, or a quarrel  and or upset in the home.  Something that has left the child  in shock.  In the past few months every  police car on the Sunshine  Coast has carried something  that can be given the child to  help ease his distress. That  something is a teddy bear he can  clutch to bring him some real  comfort.  These soft "Hug-a-bears"  are provided by the Telephone  Pioneers, who are retired or active BC Tel employees, who  send them out to RCMP  detachments which wish to par-  ticipate. The Telephone  Pioneers make these Hug-a-  bears at sewing bees or purchase  Ihem if need be when the demand is great.  Gibsons RCMP have had occasion to make use of these cuddly teddy bears, and in Sechelt,  Corporal Armet tells me, "Fortunately we haven't used one so  far. I hasten to emphasize 'fortunately' because we're glad  when such events don't happen.  Occurrences that are frightening  for the children are few and far  between, we always hope."  Rita Petrescu of the Sunshine  Coast RCMP Victim Witness  Services told us, "The Hug-a-  bears have proved useful not  only to the police, but also for  use when children, who have to  go to court in abuse cases, are  interviewed. The prosecutor can  often put the child at ease by  asking the child to tell the bear  all about it."  SURPRISE PARTY  A birthday celebration will be  held for a gentleman who resided in Gibsons for 45 years, from  1930 to 1975, and for 38 of  those years was high school  principal and teacher.  Resident of Victoria for the  past 15 years, A.S. Stan  Trueman will be remembered  with respect by the many who  were his students and by former  colleagues who are among his  friends who still live here.  Stan's eighty-eighth will be  held at St. Bart's Hall in Gibsons on Saturday March 2,  from 1:00 to 5:00 pm.  "For all those who have some  recollections to share, we plan  to have a time for this starting  at two o'clock," said Elliott  Trueman, Stan's youngest son.  "Anyone with an anecdote or  two will certainly be welcome to  speak."  Please   call   Elliott   or  Katharine Trueman at  88S-2282, preferably in the  evenings, to let them know if  you plan to attend this surprise  for Stan Trueman.  WEDDING ANNIVERSARY  Friends and family honoured  Mel and Donna Jay of  Langdale at a surprise dinner  party at the home of Wilma Sim  on the occasion of their twenty-  fifth wedding anniversary.  The 24 guests who came to  wish them well included their  two sons, Paul and Alan from  Vancouver Island; Donna's  parents, George and Bunty Derbyshire; Rose and Carol Jay  from Vancouver; and Ken and  Clyde Morrison and their wives  from Victoria.  Mel and Donna have resided  in Langdale for the last 25 years  and for the past 37 years Mel  has been employed at the  Andy's Bay Log Sorting  grounds.  A young man whose mother  lives here and who spent his early school years here has a  prestigious record of awards in  competitive rowing, and last  year became a key member of  the national Rowing Team.  Steve Frisch looks forward to  the 1992 Olympics in Spain, and  meanwhile must devote most of  his time to training and competing in world events to ensure  his standing as a team member.  Steve seeks support in this  quest for an Olympic gold in  rowing in 1992. Your support,  tax deductible, will aid a local  youth to represent Canada.

If any  one of the cast and staff had  any feeling of uncertainty, none  was evident to the attentive audience on opening night last  Wednesday.  Steel Magnolias, a symbolic  title, draws us in to the lives of  six women who give strength,  one to the other to survive dull  husbands and everyday irritations to bring, in the end, the  corn Ion and understanding to  one of their group in her time of  trial, and to ease her searing  anger at life's injustices.  But the women accept their  roles in life and respond each in  her own way���wistful, morose,  anxious, or suffused in religious  faith.  When they meet in the hairdresser's shop, the air becomes  charged, the repartee stings, but  beneath it all lie understanding  and respect for each other.  Karen Bruce, Truvy in the  play, sustains a bright  cheeriness throughout that the  part requires. She subtly conveys her character's hope that  some day her husband will show  her some affection, even a little  attention.  Melanie LeBlanc, the  youngster in the cast, quite ably  conveys the timidity of the  character Annelle, and  Anncllc's sincere but fumbling  reassuring of the mother,  M'Lynn, of the after life she  believes in.  The ill-fated daughter,  Shelby, comes very much alive  in Christabel Watson's portrayal. Shelby's reaching out for  her mother's understanding and  love, her inner struggles over  having a child and her buoyant  hope that all will turn out well,  are clearly etched in Christabel's  representation of the character.  The characters Clairee and  Ouiser, caricatures though they  are, provide Bella Burnett and  Nest Lewis the opportunity to  use their stage skills for those  hilarious moments of acid and  blunt jibes. And that splendid  bit of pantomime by  Nest���dragged into view by her  character's ill-trained dog���is  the perfect entrance for the curmudgeonly character.  Where more of the underlying tension between mother and  daughter would have, earlier  on, added to the drama in the  play's story, Dianne Evans, as  the mother M'Lynn, proved  that unnecessary when she gave  her scintillating rendition or  M'l.ynn's anguish and anger  over her loss. Dianne caught  perfectly the bitter resentment  the overly  protective mother  felt, and gave a memorable performance.  To director Ted Price, and  producer Pam Feichtner, and  the host of volunteer workers  behind the scenes, our compliments. The brightly detailed  set, the lighting, and the good  old WI hall all combined to set  off a jewel of a play. Encore!  You might, by the way, view  the videotape just to see how the  play tells more by implication  than the film does in spelling  out the detail.  Two weeks left! Get tickets  early. It's worth seeing twice.  tt  ������p  ���pp  Roberts Creek Legloft  Branch 21*  '"�� ttiendly country Laetaf  OUR PRICES HAVE  P  X/fffatfih^  SPECIAL  New York Steak  & Tigerv �� Prawns  $^295  *s>  _\\       \\ .,�������""  Tha Bait Chlekan Valua  mmmmV * You'll E.tr Com* Back For' ���  PUP main (1^35733^  TUES.

Saga of society Red McDermott  by Peter Trower  Red McDermott knew literally hundreds of loggers during  his days in the woods. A few of  them stand out in his memory.  "The best rigger 1 ever saw was  a guy named Rod Pattenburger.  There are others better known  than him but technically and  every other way, he was tops.  Most oldtimers who worked  with him will tell you the same  thing. He was a whiz up a spar-  tree. He came to a sad end however���finished up in a mental  institution. I got him his last job  when no one else would hire  him. It was mainly due to  booze���he was a real bad  alcoholic and it must have  damaged his brain.  "The wharf and railcar dump  at Aero Camp were built by an  old bridge builder with no  engineering experience. Unfortunately his name escapes me  but he put the thing together  almost singlehanded and it  stood up for donkey's years. It  would have taken a troop of  engineers from UBC longer to  survey the damn thing than it  took that old guy to build it. He  just had natural talent.  "Then I knew a guy named  John Benson. He was a Norwegian���very handsome man a  few years older than me. He  was the best donkey mover I  ever saw. He once moved a  machine over a mile in one day.  Anyone else couldn't have got it  half that far. But Benson had a  very tortured inner life. He used  to go on these suicidal binges in  Vancouver���drink himself right  to the thin edge. He'd come  back to camp with his face  swollen up like a pumpkin and  all the veins sticking out���a real  mess. Cod knows what might  have become of him if he'd kept  it up. But his story had a happy  ending. A girl he'd known in  Norway came out to Canada.  They'd been corresponding for  years. Anyhow, they got married and pretty much straightened his life out."  Despite the isolated lifestyle,  Red recalls that there were very  few instances of homosexuality  in the woods. "In over 20 years  in the camps, most of which  were spent in remote places like  Cumshewa Inlet where men  stayed for many months, 1 only  heard about two cases of  homosexual behaviour. There  were certainly some gay loggers  working in the woods but they  kept their feeling to themselves.  It was sort of unwritten law.  That brings up another thing I  learned very early in the  camps���you treat a man as you  find him. It's stuck with me all  my life. Whatever you might be  in town���a thief, a drug-addict  or whatever���in the bush, you  were just another logger. Theft  around the bunkhouses was just  about unknown. I can only  remember one case where a guy  named Blackie Cosford took  Jarvis at Arts Centre  The Arts Centre is pleased to  welcome Don Jarvis to the Sunshine Coast with an exhibition  of his paintings opening  Wednesday, February 13, and  continuing until Saturday.  March 9. The work in this show  has been selected from the  period from the early fifties to  the present, spanning most of  his career and covering important stages in the development  of this internationally recognized artist. Don Jarvis moved to  Sechelt a year ago and is painting full-time in his large home  studio.  Born in Vancouver in 1923,  he graduated from the Vancouver School of Art in 1948.  He studied with Hans Hoffman  in New York, and taught at the  Vancouver   School  of  Art.  Many Sunshine Coast artists  remember him as an inspiring  teacher.  Everyone is invited to attend  a reception for Don Jarvis at the  Arts Centre, 2 pm, Saturday,  February 16. Come out and  greet an artist with a lifetime of  experience and a genuine interest in the work of other artists.  Don Jarvis will also give a  slide lecture about his work and  career at 7 pm, Wednesday,  February 27. There is no admission fee, but a donation to help  cover expenses is always appreciated.  Thanks are due to Xisa  Huang of Bau-Xi Gallery in  Vancouver for cooperation and  assistance in collective work for  this exhibition.  Arts Centre hours are 11 to 4,  Wednesday to Saturday, and 1  to 4 pm on Sunday.  Writers' Forge  The Suncoast Writers' Forge will be having a special event  on Wednesday, February 13, at Rockwood Centre, Sechelt.  The winners of the Writing Contest for publication in the  magazine 'Suncoaster 1991' will be announced that evening.  This la always an exciting evening, so don't mln it.  Everyone will be made welcome. Time is 7:30 pm.  some Union money but that  kind of thing was very rare. A  guy might steal you blind in the  city but he'd never rob anyone  in camp. Blackie was an exception to the rule���a real bad actor."  Around the mid-Sixties,  Society Red took stock of  himself. He realized he had  begun to tire of the footloose  existence of an itinerant logger���the hard knocks and the  bad weather. Accordingly, he  emigrated to England and went  to work for the London Post  Office, a job he retains to this  day. But he thoroughly enjoyed  his recent visit and the chance to  hash over the past with other  sidehill veterans���to relive the  days of wooden spar-trees when  the high-rigger was king.

CAFE PIERROT  Hunger wasn't the initial motivation behind a recent visit to the Cafe Pierrot, it  was merely a convenient place to meet a companion for lunch. However, upon  opening the door of this quaint, Parisian style bistro, the wafting aroma of  homecooking awakened my appetite.  Positioning myself at a corner table with my back to a large picture window, I was  warmed by a rare February sun. Classical music played softly over the quiet hush of  a nearby conversation, enhancing the tranquil atmosphere.  A perusal of the menu indicated why many people find Cafe Pierrot 'unique'.  There are homemade quiches, burgers, pastas, soups, sandwiches and salads, all of  which are freshly prepared daily.  In addition to the regular menu, the restaurant's many and varied daily specials  were prominently displayed on a blackboard. I opted for the soup and sandwich  special which immediately caught my eye. This combination was cream of zucchini  soup accompanied by a tuna sandwich on fresh homemade dark rye.  After an unsuccessful 20 minute wait for the appearance of my dining companion  1 had to order. My tastebuds could hold out no longer. The cheerful waitress soon  presented me with the most delectable repast I've enjoyed in a long while.  After finishing the meal and enjoying a fresh mug of steaming coffee, my overdue  friend arrived in a state of great haste. "A forgotten appointment," she explained.  Since 1 was on the verge of leaving, my late dale decided to experiment with Cafe  Pierrot's take-out service. The experiment proved successful. She ordered shrimp  and asparagus quiche, garden fresh salad (with Cafe Pierrot's own special house  dressing) and a large oatmeal-coconut cookie with chocolate drizzles. She, too,  found her meal excellent.  FAMILY DINING  Andy'* Restaurant- Lunch and dinner specials every day. Closed Mondays.

Hawks' Shane Joe scored the  game winner while short-  handed jiiidwaythrough  the  third period. Ryan Paul notched the other goal on a nice effort. Todd Brown was sparkling  in the nets for the Hawks.  Fred Hanson replied with the  lone goal for Wakefield.  Fifth place Gilligans Flyers  beat Wakefield 5-2 in their  quest for a play-off berth in the  lop four. Billy Stockwell(2) with  a pair led Gilligans while Randy  Benner, Gord Clayton, and  Kob Stockwell also scored.  Defenseman Brian Poulson  replied with both of  Wakefield's goals.  The fourth place Buccaneers  got by the Creek by a score of  5-3. Rob Metcalfe led the Bucs  with a pair while Kerry Baker,  Dave Shindle, and Randy Mar-  leau also scored.

Full contact hockey hits Coast  The Sechell Hawks battled back from a two goal deficit lo win out over the Gibsons Kings in the  struggle for second place in Ihe Men's Commercial League last Thursday. -Joel Johnstone photo  by Joel Johnstone  Full contact hockey is coming  to the Sechell Arena, Sunday,  February 17, as the newly formed Men's Commercial League  Allstars take on the Royal City  League Squamish Cyclones.  Organizer Tom Poulton says  the exhibition style game is a  forerunner to what he hopes  will become a once-a-month  event featuring other teams  from the RC League and Men's  Commercial League. (MCL)  President Bob Young says two  more games against Powell  River and Seattle are possible  before season's end.  But Young points out this  doesn't mean full contact is  coming back to the MCL.  "To go back to full contact  we'd lose too many players.  We've had serious injuries with  non-contact."  But Poulton says he is getting  interest from about 20 players  who want to play. "It's going to  be hard hitting too, like senior  double-A, which is like junior  hockey but the guys are a little  bigger. We should be able to  compete with them. I'm getting  good interest from the players  here."  Young, however, sounds  uncertain as to how much full  contact the players will be able  to take.  "It'll be good for our  guys...it'11 get it out of their  systems," he says, noting that  the higher, harder calibre of  play is quite different from the  popular non-hitting speed of the  MCL.  The majority of players in the  RCL are ex-junior class players.  Both Young and Poulton  agree the hitting aspect of the  game is generally a big crowd  draw. Although Young says  "I'm going to be there," he  adds, "I hope nobody gets hurt  and there's no fighting. These  guys still represent the commercial league."  Poulton is looking forward to  the crowd draw and sees the exhibition game as a good exercise  in hockey for those who want to  play.  "I'd like to get the whole coast  to come but the arena is too  small," adding that if response  is good from both players and  community, he'd like to see  once-a-month games next  season.

The strategy of curling  by Hairy Turner  An important dement of the  game of curling is the strategy.  Much of curling is largely a  gam* of mental skill in combination with the physical skills.  It takes the mastery of both to  completely master the game.  There are two basic curling  strategies, a draw game or a  knockout game. The knockout  or takeout strategy refers to a  defensive style of game where  the object is to remove any opposition stones that come into  play. If your players are accurate and seldom miss the  broom, this is a safe and  unrisky style of play. Played at  its skillful best, it clean out all  opposition stones and leaves  only your stones in the house at  the moment of your choosing.  If a knockout team establishes a  lead, the philosophy then  follows that you keep a clean  house for the rest of the game  thus ensuring your win. It is a  very successful style of play for  the player who has honed  his/her physical skills to a keen  edge.  The other style of play is the  draw game. The draw game is  conducted by establishing some  guards in front of the house  (rings) and then coming around  those guards with stones into  the rings. Playing the draw  game is risky and causes big  scores to be rung up by either  team since the guards established by one team can just as easily  be used by the other.  This style of game is usually  used by the inexperienced curler  or the player with lesser physical  skills, as it evens the playing  field, so to speak. Experienced  teams avoid the draw game in  the early ends, but for the  novice curler it is also the time  when an advantage can be gained. In the early ends, some  guessing is going on by both  skip* as to weight and ice. It it  at this time that an inexperienced team can get some rocks and  an early lead which the more experienced team may have trouble getting hack.  Choice of the draw game or  the takeout game is up to the individual skip and team. Make  your choice according to the  skills of your curlers and use  their individual strengths as  much as possible. Tailor your  game to maximize the strengths  of your curlers and avoid their  weaknesses. The opposition will  be trying to do the same while  trying to exploit your  weaknesses.  BONSPIEL  The Firemen-Polke Bonspiel  took place this past weekend.  Thanks to the organizers' efforts, there was a large number  of people out and we hope they  all had a good time. Seven people showed an interest in curling  on a regular basis next year.  Strikes and spares  CLASSIC:  Bev Dmmbole.  SsstVeelltllsi  Jule.te.udre.ull  Wilier Kohuch  TUES.

Peace and pollution  The Sunshine Coast Peace  Committee and the Sunshine  Coast Watershed Alliance are  inviting everyone to attend a  special meeting, tonight,  February 11 at 7:30 pm in the  Roberts Creek School Library.  There will be a slide show  presentation on the environmental degradation of the  Strait of Georgia and what can  be done to remedy the situation.  Gabriola Island resident  Laurie McBride, co-founder of  the Save Oeorgia Strait  Alliance, will be the guest  speaker. She will report on the  200-mile sailing inquiry conducted by the Alliance this summer around communities  situated along the Strait.  Following the inquiry, 120  kayakers and canoeists crossed  the Strait from Nanaimo to  Sechelt in a marathon to raise  public  awareness  regarding  pollution in the local ecosystem.  Last summer's Save Georgia  Strait Alliance activities  culminated in a very successful  environmental fair on Sechelt  Band Lands at Trail Bay.  Presently, each minute, over  one million gallons of toxic  waste from municipal sewage,  storm drains, pulp mills and  other industries pour into the  tide-locked basin of the Strait.  Later this month, a conference  for community leaders and activists, environmentalists,  academics, workers, union  representatives and concerned  citizens will be held in  Nanaimo. The agenda will be  geared to determine strategies  and models for setting up a  public water quality board.  Anyone wishing more information and registration forms  for the State of the Strait Conference may call 885-7143.  119-536  23545*  217-443  165467  217413  Town Hall Meeting  The tint Sechelt Town Hal Meeting will be held March 11  at 7:30 pm al Rockwood Centre.

The open house was intended  to give the public an  "overview" of the present state  of the wild coho salmon  populations of the Georgia  Strait. It focused on issues including destruction of the  coho's natural spawning  grounds and problems of overfishing, to present and proposed  programs to save the fish  "before it's too late."  Over-fishing is the largest  problem facing coho salmon. A  government estimate contends  that "In the last 14 years, 80 per  cent of adult coho were caught  and killed. This is 10 per cent  too high to maintain survival of  most stocks."  Troll net fishing accounts for  the highest catch of adult coho  in and around Georgia Strait. In  the last five years, according to  a government document, this  form of commercial fishing  resulted h the depletion of yearly coho stocks to the tune of 2  million fish. During the same  time period, sport fishing by  residents and visitors to BC accounted for approximately  700,000 fish per annum.  Decreases in wild coho stocks  have also occurred through increases in BC's population and  subsequent destruction of traditional coho spawning grounds.  Many coastal streams, once  utilized solely by salmon, are  now the sites of subdivisions,  SALES e\ INSTALLATION  ��� Commercial & Residential*  ��� Carpet & Resilient Flooring*  ........

The long-term results of such  breeding patterns would be a  "reduction of the gene pool required to maintain healthy  stocks." It makes existing  stocks more vulnerable to  Hooding, pollution and disease  outbreaks.  The upbeat portion of the  open house was the focus on  what is being done, or attempted, to improve the salmon  situation. Enhancement projects have been implemented  that could, according to Ken  Wilson, "improve coho stocks  dramatically."  A Department of Fisheries  document reveals that the scope  of the enhancement projects  ranges from the continual introduction of hatchery stock into the system (40 per cent of the  annual catch in Georgia Strait is  made up of Canadian hatchery  fish), to habitat and harvesting  management.  According to Wilson, "Coho  hatcheries in BC vary from  small community projects run  by special interest groups, to  large hatcheries run by the  government. From these, approximately 7 million coho fry  were released in 1989. This compares with about 800,000 released in 1974."  Wilson added, however, that  the goal is not to replace existing  coho stocks with hatchery fish,  but to improve the survival rate  of wild fish. That is where  habitat and harvesting management come into play.  The long term strategies for  habitat management include improvements to existing spawning grounds, such as managing  water flow, adding gravel,  cleaning up industrial areas,  and, in some cases, creating artificial habitat.  With harvesting management  the goals would include reduced  seasons for sport and commercial fishing, closing entire areas  to fishing, gear restrictions, and  size and/or quota limits.  Wilson said that, while some  'fishermen would resent the  management programs, they  were absolutely necessary to ensure wild coho survival.  One of the main ironies of the  situation, as cited at the open  house, is that, if the coho  populations of spawning  streams continues to drop, it  will become increasingly difficult to convince the various  government bodies that the  dwindling number of fish in a  given stream warrant protection.  1 REMEMBER:  If you're going to  gamble with your  SEPTIC TANK  a flush  is better  than a  full house.

For example a person who  stipulates "no children" as a  condition ot rental would be in  violation ol the Family Status and  the Human Rights Acts. The  landlord who places the advertisement and the newspaper  which publishes it would both be  in contravention of the legislation  and could have a complaint tiled  against them. The Coast News  will therefore not accept such  discriminatory ads. TFN  Roberts Creek Hall avail.,  dances, parties, weddings,  equipment rental.

Ovsftr   .'afflri Coast News, February 11,1991  21.  In local schools this week  Positive African image promoted  by Joel Johnstone  A positive image of development in Africa is being  presented in the classrooms of  Elphinstone, Chatelech and  Pender Harbour this week,  thanks to the United Nations  Association of Canada  (UNAC).  Margaret Manifold, coordinator of UNAC's Africa  2000 High School Participation  Program, will be touring the  Social Studies 10 classes Monday, Tuesday, and Wednisday,  as she works her way up to  Powell River.  The program's emphasis is on  how students can get involved at  home���or through organizations such as Canada World  Youth or Canadian Crossroads  International, said Ms  Manifold. "It makes them more  aware and in touch with the  subject," she added, as opposed  to what she calls the negative  image of Africa conveyed  through the mainstream media.  "All we get to see are the bad  things, so we like to emphasize  the good things there too. We  haven't seen (here) how Zimbabwe is now producing enough  food to export some. There's a  lot of left and right dictatorships we hear about, but there is  a big move in places like Zam  bia and Namibia towards  democracy. In Kenya there's a  greenbelt movement to re-forest  abandoned land which was  formed entirely by women in  Nairobi, Kenya.  Manifold taught Social  Studies in Botswana in  Southern Africa for close to two  years and her experience there  gave her a deep appreciation for  aid programs designed to help  people create the means to being  more productive for themselves.  But, in light of the financial  cost of Canada's commitment  to the Persian Gulf War, she  sees funding from Canada  towards these programs to be in  trouble. Canada currently contributes four per cent of its gross  national product revenues  towards foreign aid through the  Canadian International  Development Agency. "Most  industrialized countries contribute seven per cent and  Canada is lagging behind...  we're just concerned the budget  will get cut again," she said in a  telephone interview last Thursday.  The United Nations  Association of Canada was  formed along with the United  Nations in 1946, to involve ordinary citizens in UN issues and  programs. But Manifold says  UNAC doesn't always concur  with UN decisions. Recently,  the UNAC national office made  clear its opposition to the war  initiative taken, claiming that all  possible steps were not taken  prior to the conflict.  St. Mary's gets smoke out  Following the swelling national and North American  trend, St. Mary's Hospital has  announced that, as of February  14, all areas within the hospital  walls will be entirely "nonsmoking".  The decision was taken by the  hospital's Board of Directors on  the recommendation of the  medical staff, and with the  strong support of most  employees, Hospital Administrator Ted Wright told the  Coast News.  For some years, smoking in  the hospital has been restricted  to the lounges for patients, and  the cafeteria for staff. From  February 14, all smokers will  have to retire to approved outdoor areas.  There's one exception to the  rule: smoking residents���not  visitors or staff���of Totem  Lodge, the long-term care facility, can continue to smoke in  their smoking lounge, "because  that is their home," said  Wright.  "The reason for the change,"  concluded the administrator,  "is that it is healthier for  everyone concerned that there  be no tobacco smoke within the  hospital. Also, the hospital is  conscious of its role as leader of  health care on the coast."  The Town of Gibsons has  also recently passed a "No  Smoking Bylaw", number 622,  which restricts people's smoking  in public places to designated  areas, and in some instances,  does not permit it at all.  Establishments besides St.  Mary's Hospital which have  recently declared themselves to  be totally non-smoking areas include Sunnycrest Mall, the  Creekhouse Restaurant and the  Blue Heron Restaurant.

The historic house was built  by Gibsons' pioneer Doctor Inglis and was frequented by J.S.  Woodsworth, founder of the  CCF (now NDP) party. There is  considerable interest in preserving the house as a heritage  building.  In other matters dealt with at  the February 5 council meeting,  aldermen heard a presentation  by Vene Parnell on the activities  of Travel Sunshine Coast.  Parnell described the extensive tourism marketing campaign that has been carried on  by the organization in the last  live years and asked that Council contribute $6000 to their  1991 budget. The matter was  referred to the Finance Committee.  Gibsons will be adding its  voice to those of other members  of the Federation of Canadian  Municipalities  to  protest  the  "dramatic hike in fees paid by  municipalities to license police,  ambulances and fire protection  services."  Recently the $25 fee was increased to almost $500. "We  should fire off a letter of protest  at these massive tax increases,"  declared Alderman Margaret  Morrison.  In a discussion of a request  for funds by Sunshine Coast  Breakaway, the teen and family  drug and alcohol recovery program, Mayor Small told  aldermen that his research on  the local program had convinced him of the reliability and effectiveness of the group.  He said that in his talks with  the high school principal, the  RCMP and youth worker Jim  Doyle, "they all speak highly  and are supportive of this  organization, in spite of its  checkered past.  "They ail assure me that this  group is doing good things for  the town and there is a very  definite need for it.  "My purpose in giving you  this information is that we not  dismiss it out of hand. My heart  tells me that we should support  this group."  Alderman Morrison supported the Mayor's position. "I  feel that trying to do something  about this situation...is one of  the more worthwhile things we  might be doing," she said. "I  read all the glowing accounts of  the Breakaway in  Penticton.  One of the names that caught  my eye ...was Jeannie Lamb. I  know that woman. She's a most  responsible, sensible woman.  She's on the Okanagan Board  of Health and the Penticton  Council."  It was agreed that a representative from Breakaway would  be invited to give a presentation  to Council on the group's plans.

Local NDP catches election fever  by Jan Michael Sherman  It was billed innocently  enough as a potluck din-  ner-with-guest-speaker. But the  NDP affair held last Saturday  evening in Sechelt turned out to  be something of a political  "roast"���with Bruce Woods-  worth, Howard White, and  MLA Darlene Marzari functioning as human flame  throwers.  The first "victim" to be singed was Premier William  Zalm, with Woodsworth doing  the honours. Talking about  Vancouver-Point Grey  MLA���and guest speaker���  Darlene Marzari, the son of  CCF Party founder J.S.  Woodsworth said, "She (Marzari) had a toy store which I  believe she sold when she was  elected���not wanting a Fantasy  Gardens on her hands!"  Greenecourt Hall rocked with  appreciative laughter and applause as the full complement of  Sunshine Coast NDP officials  and party supporters tucked into a smorgasbord of homecooked food and plain-spoken  political rhetoric.  "Vander Zalm forgot to  cancel $70,000 worth of phone  hook-ups ordered for the fall  election which he had to call  off!", chuckled Howard White,  NDP candidate for the Mackenzie riding. "You know, legally  the Socreds can stretch it out  (the calling of an election) until  January 15, 1992���which is five  years from Vander Zalm's  swearing in���before they call in  the military!"  More laughter. This particular crowd doesn't appear to  be in much need of warming up,  but in politics certain rituals are  obligatory, and White is obviously enjoying himself. After  a sly dig at Liberal Leader Gordon Wilson over what some  regarded as a premature media  ad buy last fall (when it appeared Premier Vander Zalm  was about to call an election),  White lavishes praise on NDP  Leader Audrey McLaughlin,  then  introduces Ms Marzari.  A self-described "street-  fighter", Mazari wastes no time  getting down to the nitty gritty.  "We've been swimming in  lies for the last few weeks", she  says in pointed reference to the  Gulf war. "No matter where  you stand...these so-called  'hardened troops' are just  kids...The credibility gap has  never been wider..."  Mazari pauses for effect. "So  it is with provincial politics."  Suddenly she's grinning, asked  about the Premier's televised  speech of the night before. "I  asked a friend 'Did you watch it  last night?' He said 'Naw���1  watched it last year.' "  Her perceived plight of the  province was the centerpiece of  Ms Mazari's address, and here  her toughness was more than  matched by an obviously deep-  rooted compassion.  "(There's) a long-term plan  here of 'low-wage BC, a low-  wage economy...Our socioeconomic climate shows a thinning of the middleclass. It's a  plan! To bring in outside companies to set up here���lured by  cheap wages. But this is not our  dream..."  Now she's targeting the state  of higher education in BC. "If  we want to even achieve (so  much as) the Canadian average  in post-secondary school education, we would need to add  24,000 students to our system.  That's a whole university..."  Mazari smiles sadly at the image: "We don't spend enough  on our own kids." >  After hammering home the  NDP theme of "Plan! Priorize!  Include!", Mazari briefly, but  passionately, notes the need  she���and others���perceive for a  "Ministry for Women."  "Women are earning 63 cents  on the���male���dollar!," she  cries. "This means women need  to be subsidized...By the public  sector...Welfare...We keep  women in a subservient  economic position." An ironic  smile: "WHY do we need a  Ministry for Women...?"  Then it's an apparently impulsive prediction���one which  evokes a roar from the partisan  crowd.  "It's the NDP in '91! Har-  court is re-elected for a second  term! Then a third term!"  Mazari grins delightedly out at  the grassroots throng she's  counting on to make this rosy  NDP future possible. "Fifteen  years from now it'll be Premier  Mike Harcourt talking to Prime  Minister Audrey McLaughlin!"  Sechelt revitalizes  At the February 6 meeting of the Sechelt Council, members  gave support���in principle���to a recommendation from the  Downtown Revitalization Committee (DRC). The recommendation called for the removal and re-routing of telephone  and hydro lines along Cowrie Street and the installation of  decorative lighting.  The recommendation would encourage the involvement of  merchants and store owners with the DRC to develop a "cost  sharing plan" to finance the proposal.
