 The Sunshine  LEGISLATOR ilBKAK*  PuilMA'ti nl ��uU(il��i  Victoria, S.C VU7 r 'I  ruuiisneu on the Sunshine Coast    25' per copy on news stands       January 28,1991      Volume 45      Issue 4  Senior Lab Technologist Dave Chance sees the future being built at Howe Sound Pulp and Paper's Port Mellon mill. The  paper machine. Hearing its completion date of April 1, when up and running will produce one of the highest grades of paper to  meet the strict standards of co-partner In the $1 billion-plus expansion, Oji Paper of Japan. The last major part of reconstruction has begun as the oldest section of the mill comes down to make way for an on-site power station which will make the mill  Independent of BC Hydro. j<wi Johnstone photo  Improvements at the mill  by Rose Nicholson  By the end of 1991 or by early  1992, the heavy palls of smoke  that; often hang over Howe  Sound will be a thing of the  past.  Economic Development Officer Bill Moore told members  of the Economic Development  Commission (EDC) that funding is finally in place to undertake measures that will "result  in the elimination of open pit  burning of 115,000 tonnes of  wood waste in the Howe Sound  area. We have expanded our  terms of reference to include  other forms of fibre waste  rhroughauH the Sunshine  Coast."  Funding for the project has  come both from government  and the industries involved.  "We have shortlisted five  consultants," said Moore "and  should make our decision  within four weeks. The terms of  reference for the consultants  have been agreed on. We will be  looking at such things as wood  pellets, wood packaging for  third world countries, firewood  for local users and provincial  campgrounds, and hog fuel  which Port Mellon has agreed  to take.  "We are also looking into the  feasibility of using hog fuel for  our own co-generation plant  (for electrical power). We are  looking at all aspects of using  fibre waste, but our first priori  ty   was   to   eliminate   the  burning."  When asked whether the burning of hog fuel would create  .:twt*stmt smoke problems^,,  Moore explained that the incineration process that is used  generated such high  temperatures that all smoke was  virtually eliminated.  "Nothing is 100 per cent," he  said, "but it's 2000 times better  than what we had before, and it  generates energy. It's a  renewable resource."  Transportation concerns  SCRD demands ferry details  by Stuart Burnside  The SCRD Transportation  Committee met January 24 and  voted to recommend to the  Regional Board that a more  detailed explanation of the proposed commuter ferry system be  demanded of Victoria.  The general feeling of the  committee was crystallized by  Alternate Board Member Harry  Almond when he said he was  "unclear" on the ramifications  of the proposed service; where  the ferry would dock on the  Langdale side, what kind of  parking would be provided, etc.  Speaking at the meeting on  behalf of a still-coalescing  group of existing Langdale-  Horseshoe Bay commuters .was  Roberts Creek resident John  MacDonald. He expressed concern that, in the present stage of  establishing die commuter ferry  the opinions? of those who actually commute���a number he  estimated around 300��� had not  been solicited.  MacDonald said he had tried/  to participate in a pell conducted on the Queen of Oak  Bay, aimed at ascertaining the  needs arid concerns of ferry  travellers. But, in the irate commuter's opinion, the survey was  conducted in a manner that  ''could not possibly have any  relation to the reality of the  situation." MacDonald said he  made every effort to indicate to  the pollster where the regular  commuters, tended to conglomerate, but was largely ignored.  In a later conversation,  transportation chairman Gordon Wilson told the Coast News  the poll was a summer work  project employing college  students and paid for by the  provincial government.  Later MacDonald said it was  not the idea of a new ferry he  took offense to, but rather that  he objected to the supposition  of the government that the  preferred docking point on the  Vancouver side was the Sea Bus  Terminal.  MacDonald estimated that  about half of the existing commuters don't work in the central  downtown area, and would  have to travel back through the  city to arrive at their places of  employment. He pointed out  that many commuters have had  to fashion special work  schedules to accommodate their  place of residence and that this  would be jeopardized by a central Vancouver docking point.  MacDonald said that, while  improved ferry service is always  welcome on the Coast, some  legitimate effort should be  made to ensure its overall practicality.  Also broached at the  transportation meeting was the  subject of regional bike paths,  and, as with the commuter  ferry, Alternate Almond was  less than impressed.  He cited the Roberts Creek  paths, saying they were "largely  ignored by cyclists��� because  they are too hilly and un-  paved���and are in danger of  coming under the sole use of  horseback riders." He also  commented on the lack of appropriate signage identifying the  trails as bicycle oriented.  Transportation chairman  Gordon Wilson concurred with  Almond's observations and  provided some ideas as to how  the entire project could be improved. He recommended a letter be drafted to the BC Ferry  Corporation requesting an area  in Langdale be set aside by the  corporation for the sole use of  cyclists. The area would provide  water, air, and perhaps maps of  the Coast's bike trails.  Wilson pointed out that a  similar area had been set up in  Earl's Cove by one of the store  proprietors there.  Following these suggestions,  Wilson mentioned the possibility of bike-oriented camp sites to  be set up at strategic locations  along the Coast for the benefit  of those who ride long  distances.  It was also recommended that  a letter be drafted to the Department of Highways imploring  (hem to make an effort, in  future road widening projects,  to create shoulders wide enough  lo accommodate cyclists.  Sechelt Alderman Art  Whistler, also at the meeting,  restated Sechelt Council's full  support for the bike path projects, but advised that the  Council had been instructed by  a municipal lawyer, for reasons  of perceived liability, lo refer to  ihe paths not as "bike paths"  but rather as "extended  shoulders along the road."

Thomas flew to Jordan last  weekend along with Vancouver  artist Carl Chaplin on a peace  mission. They had hoped to  bring Chaplin's "art nuko"  paintings lo Ihe attention of  leaders such as King Hussein of  Jordan and Saddam Hussein of  Iraq, in order to encourage  peace efforts, and lo lake a  peace message from Canada to  people in the region.  In a recent phone call,  Thomas described seeing  massive peace actions in Amman, including a huge demonstration of Jordanian, Iraqi and  Palestinian women, and a 55  year old U.S. woman, Ellen  Rosser, who is fasting on the  steps of the U.S. Embassy "until ihe killing stops".  Rosser is surrounded by Jordanian women and children  who are supporting her, and is  on ihe eighth day of her fast.  She has already collapsed once  and was taken to hospital, but  insisted on returning. Thomas  and Chaplin are hoping lo gel  Rosser home lo the U.S. in  order to save her life.  Thomas reporis that while  people seem initially nervous  iboul his and Chaplin's pres  ence as westerners, (he welcome  becomes very warm once they  say they are on a peace mission.  "The ree^tiWi'^ta.sa^I'is  surprise and joy to find out that  there are other westerners who  express sympathy for Palestinians and other oppressed people."  What worries Thomas most  are the ecological consequences  of the Persian Gulf war.  Everywhere in Amman, people  talk of the effects of oil?well  fires. "Environmentalists are  often accused of hysteria, but  I'm convinced we have not been  overstating Ihe case," says  Thomas. He sees ihe need for  an emergency response learn in  the Gulf to start immediate  monitoring of the changes. A  news special aired in Amman  this week featured a clima-  lologist who reported extensive  smoke and ash and predicted a  cloud half the size of the U.S.  and a resulting 20 degree Celsius  drop in temperature.  "Canada is seen here as having adopted a very aggressive  stance," he says, "and people  are asking me, 'Why Canada?'  We have blown our peacekeeping image, and frankly, I'm  embarrassed." According to  news reporis, Canada is currently spending over $90  million/month on the war effort. Thomas believes it is essential that Canadian troops be  withdrawn.

The Socreds' executive board met last week and, according to these worthies, there is no longer a leadership issue  to address or debate. Premier Vander Zalm is the winner  by a knockout���albeit something of a technical one.  In reaction to their party's dissident elements, whose recent attempt to bring about a leadership review failed, a  process which might well have proved salutary regardless  of the outcome, the Socred kingmakers have gone overboard in the opposite direction.  Proclaiming that Vander Zaun's primacy is no longer in  question simply does not make it so. 'Wishful thinking' is  indelibly stamped all over the party's pronunciamento.  The riding association voters, far from unequivocally  endorsing Vander Zalm, made it painfully clear that a  significant majority of the party faithful harbour serious  doubts about their formerly Teflon-clad champion, but  were enough torn by the looming spectre of an NDP win  not to tinker with the top at this time.  The over-riding question, of course, the unknown which  Vander Zalm and his beleagured minions apparently  prefer not to reckon with slraight-on, is whether voters  other than the do-or-diehard will also fail to perceive  Vander Zalm's leadership as an election issue.  We doubt it. Surely that Socred majority which,  without exaggeration, yearned for a leadership review,  were the last voters keen for a change. Those British Columbians of political stripe other than Socred, including  but not limited to the fired-up NDP, are certainly determined to examine Mr. Vander Zalm's political record with  more than usual interest.  His failure to either understand, appreciate, or care  about the nature of conflicts of interest, as evidenced in his  handling of the Fantasy Gardens contretemps, will be  brought to the autopsy table, the better to gain a clearer,  more certain knowledge of who the real William Vander  Zalm is.  And this is only one of a myriad host of issues on which  the premier is rightly perceived to be vulnerable. Environmentalists will not forget nor forgive him for the  John Reynolds fiasco centred as it was on anti-pollution  regulations, while those not identified with any specific  issue will be anxious to learn whether Mr. Vander Zalm is,  indeed, as much his own man as he claims.  But if he is at all concerned about the way he and his  political situation is perceived and evaluated by others, Bill  Vander Zalm's playing it close to his vest���allowing only  his patented optimism and megawatt grin to show.  "I feel so good! I feel like calling an election today!"  was the way he put it last Friday.  If he really feels this way, why doesn't he go ahead and  doit?  -from our files ���  3Ve Remember When  '   S YEARS AGO  A move to reduce development cost charges from the  present $1100 to $430 in an effort to encourage development in the town was tabled.

Dogs on the killing prowl  Bloody tale from Nelson Island  by Ted Woodard  Almost any dog will chase  deer. I had occasion yesterday  to witness two dogs proving  once again that this was so.  They weren't extra large dogs  ��� golden labs. By their tracks,  we saw they had chased a deer  along Mount Daniel trail, and  then trapped her in a bay on the  south side of Garden Bay Lake.  Naturally, she took to the  water. A couple of days earlier,  the ice would have supported  her, or a day later it would have  been gone, but as it was she fell  through the ice 30 feet from  shore. She broke her way out  into the lake, swimming frantically, but ran into heavier ice  and could go no further.  The dogs dashed out on some  snags that were floating on the  surface and got to within a few  feet of her. She kept trying to  swim out, but was stopped by  the ice and she'd turn around  and swim in, but the only way  to shore was past the logs. again, tne taut  When she came close, one dog , wjth the owners.  would  iumn on hfr hnr-lr ��� nn,f --. - - -  would jump on her back ana  bite her head and ears. The  other barked maniacally which  is what finally got our attention!  across the lake.  The doe would swim her tight  circle until the dog rolled off. If  she drew too close to the dogs,  the other dog would bite her.  snoul or whatever it could grab.  We ran the trail and climbed  down the bank. By this time,  dog one was in the water, near!  spent, trying unsuccessfully to  get up on the log. Dog two was  on the log, feet splayed, six feet  from the doe, not moving,  hypothermia.  The doe was wedged into the  root end of the snag, furthest  from shore. She was bleeding  profusely from her snout and  head, shaking violently, and  grinding her teeth so loudly we  could hear her from shore.  I'll never forget that scene. I  believe even seasoned hunters  would have been affected by  such despair ��� not only of the  deer, but of the dogs as well. As  far as the dogs were concerned  they were 'on the hunt', working as a team, employing instincts stored way back in their  tiny   brains.   They   were  successful. They were freezing  to death, but they couldn't stop.  With two or more dogs, the  pack instinct takes hold, and  they become more dangerous to  wildlife.   Especially pregnant  does like this one. Coordinated  hunting begins. Even one dog  can be bad news with newborns  and should be restrained. What  is most important is that you are  out there with your dogs. You  can control them. The dogs we  saw yesterday were completely  unattended, not just for a little  while, but for hours, possibly  most of the time. They've probably chased animals before  and can be expected to do it  again. The fault lies squarely    jpr-  us and blankets for her. We put  a call into the Wildlife Centre in  Halfmoon Bay and they came  up and disinfected the wounds  and brought food and more  blankets.  I wish I could say she made it,  this little doe. She was trying.  She'd struggle to get up, then  fall back exhausted. We wrapped her up and massaged her  trying not to stress her further,  but we knew it was the cold that  would take her before the  wounds she suffered. Her gums  were totally white, her eyes insensitive. Sometime during the  night she struggled a few feet  from where we left her and we  found her collapsed and still in  the morning, her unborn fawn  with her.  I have two reasons for sharing this joyless story. One is obviously to encourage care of  dogs so that not only the dogs,  but the wildlife can survive. The  other is to vent my frustration  at not being able to help a single  member of a wild species.  Legislation tends to deal with  'Wildlife', but when it comes to  helping one mammal or bird  there is nothing set up.  If we could provide financial  and practical support to people  qualified in administering drugs  or sedatives to injured wild  animals, or if there were people  available to give accurate information it would help. Most people naturally want to assist injured animals in any way they  can, but don't know what to do  ��� myself included. I know that  a little knowledge can be a  dangerous thing. Maybe there  are people who have real expertise, resources and ideas. I hope  they can be brought together!  Ted Woodard is a carpenter  and a resident of Nelson Island.  We could have let these 'pets'  drown and been rid of two problem dogs, and given the lack of  concern of the owner, perhaps  we should have, but why should  we have to wrestle with our consciences.  We waded in and dragged out  dog one. Wet now, we walked  the log and got dog two started  on a course for shore. Then we  went for the doe. She was  unresisting as we pushed her  backwards out of the roots and  guided her between the logs  where it was ice free.  Too far gone to get her direction, we swam beside her  through the path she'd broken  when she ran out, broke the last  few feet of ice and hunkered her  up on the shore. Her legs  useless, we massaged her until  we froze up ourselves, then  headed out for dry clothes for  In a nutshell ^^^^^^  Is it Eyeraq or Iraq?

I1^./, From the Beite Midler album 77ie Rose  1 JaR    Dedicated to Nikki Weber in St. Mary's Hospital  by S. Nutter  It is of course as we used to  say a small thing in a big war  but I find myself fussing a bit  about the fact that an increasing  number of us are calling the  country 'Eyeraq', while others  are carrying on calling it Iraq, as  it has always been and as they  call it themselves.  For heavens sake you may  say, what does it matter goddam, and of course in terms of  the war it matters neither jot  nor tittle. However, even in  times of war there's room for  bits of chatter around the coffee  urn (do they have drink in the  messes in Saudi Arabia?); and  since at this time anyway a lot  of what we're getting concerns a  sub-war or squabble between  the Media and the Military,  maybe we can take a minute or  two to take a look at this sub-  phenomenon.  An interesting bit to me is  that, as far as my listening experience goes, this has only been  going on for a matter of two or  three months and already it's  sweeping the airways. How does  this sort of thing come about?  I heard an interview with the  Iraqi ambassador to the U.N.  The U.S. media celebrity persisted throughout with  'Eyeraq', while the ambassador  carried on firmly with 'Iraq'. It  was almost a punitive action in  itself.  Remembering Churchill and  his personal way of snarling  'Nahzzee', we could think that  this new pronunciation was just  a way of getting a hint of  loathing into the name. Certainly you can inject more venom  by drawling 'Eyeraq' than you  can by clipping off 'Iraq'.  But I really don't think that  this is the present cause, and as  evidence 1 point to the spreading misery of 'anteye' used for  and-, and 'semeye' for semi-.  Again, as in 'Eyeraq' these are  relatively new innovations here,  but they have spread like  wildfire (I have heard them  from writers, poets even) and  again we may ask how come?  Through TV of course we  suppose, but how can we see it  beginning? Surely they can't  just spring spontaneously  among large numbers of people  dotted about the continent.  Some up-scale, upwardly  mobile groups perhaps (in  Chicago? or New York?) with a  restive itch to make the  language more 'their own'?  Saying 'anteye' becomes an 'in'  thing?  Withal of course there's the  recognition that fussing with  people's pronunciations may be  just plain silly. The trouble is  that it can introduce a sense of  totteriness at the base of the  language itself. If this kind of  thing is possible, so easy and so  fast, then what heedless and  dire distortions can we look for  at any time in the future?  (I have heard for example  that good old word 'maritime', '  with its robust associations with  'lime' and 'rime', called lately  on the CNN channel  'mariteem', and this came clear-'  ly from the Chicago Commodity Exchange. So far nobody in  Gibsons has tried to say  'mariteem' to me.)  The language spoken is really  not much divisible from the  written word. It's what we think  with and overwhelmingly our  principal link to the past. It  changes over periods of time  with the changing character of  peoples, but quite a lot's involved probably if we're going to  have it just jinxed about by upper echelons of the TV network  biz,  In Canada maybe we need all  the confidence in language we  can muster. No lesser person'  that David Suzuki has pointed  out, in the last but one  paragraph of his autobiography  'Metamorphosis', that in all his  travels about the world to do interviews for his various science  programs, he found the least articulate people to be Canadians.  But enough of this dangerous  minefield of a subject. Best we  got back to the war...  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper <LettetiL tor the. CdJtot  Gulf war a 'sickening spectacle, a tragedy'  Coast News, January 28,1991  Editor:  In my letter (January 14  Coast News) I expressed the  hope that all this preparation  for war would with luck turn  out to be nothing more than a  nightmare. Well, luck was not  with us! We are now involved in  a war that I feel was avoidable  and unnecessary. Oil fields will  be destroyed, thousands of  children, women, old people  and military men will die, nations may be destroyed, the  middle east thrown into political  disarray and hatreds between  peoples developed that may last  longer than mother earth.  What's it all for, greed,  power, the President's ego?  Who knows? I've heard many  different answers, none of  which make much sense or  show any regard for human life.  One thing is for sure, war  doesn't instill one good feeling  in the human body or mind. In  the past few weeks most people  have had the same feelings I've  had, fear, hatred, anger,  dispair, frustration and  helplessness. Not one good feeling!  Fear for where it will all end.  Hatred for the military industrial complex that President  Eisenhower warned us of and  the money making war mong-  erers. Anger at Prime Minister  Mulroney for railroading our  nation into marching lock step  with the Americans to the beat  of the President's drummer.  Frustration at the failure of the  United nations and helplessness  because as individuals there  seems little we can do.  When will the human race  grow up?  When it's all over this war  will be analysed over and over  again. I believe it will become  Veterans rebuked  Editor:  On page 11 of Ihe Coast  News of January 21, under the  heading 'Students Protest For  Peace', I read that eight  veterans of World War II stated  that they had nothing negative  to say about the American led  invasion of Iraq and Canada's  role in it. While I respect their  right to express their opinions  (no one should have more  right), I do take exception to the  possible belief that all veterans  feel this same way.  As a veteran that had active  war participation in Italy and  Europe, I find it hard to believe  that anyone that has actually  been in a war can say that this is  the way that disputes should be  settled. War is a dehumanizing  experience, and the horror of it  has been with me ever since. I  do not believe World War II  was the last moral war, but  when 1 look at the economy of  the U.K. and America, and  compare it to the economy of  Germany and Japan, I  sometimes wonder who actually  won the war!  I know there are many  veterans who feel as I do and 1  do not want to leave the impression on the minds of the young  people of Canada, whom I admire a great deal, that all  veterans share the same view as  the eight in Gibsons.  C.F. Beeman  Clearcutting concerns  Editor:  This is an open letter to  everyone in the community with  concerns about clearcut logging  in our watershed. The Ministry  of Forests' current five year  plan (1990 to 1994) for the  Crown lands in the Sechelt Provincial Forest includes clearcutting several blocks above the  power lines in Roberts Creek  and Wilson Creek���two to  three blocks of approximately  16 hectares are scheduled to be  clearcut each year. The first  block (on Clough Creek above  Grant Road) is going up for  tender in the next several weeks.  Many will recall November 1983  when Clough Creek was the site  of a debris flow slide and  residents of Crow and Orange  Roads were evacuated and nearly lost their homes.  A group of concerned citizens  and neighbours is challenging  this plan by presenting Forestry  with alternative options to clear-  cutting.  You can hear these options  and add your voice to the growing number who are seeking  "clearcut alternatives". Come  to a public meeting at Roberts  Creek Hall, Wednesday,  February 13, at 8 pm. Forestry  officials have been invited to  present their case and to hear  the community's proposal.  Everyone will be given the opportunity to express their feelings and points of view, share  information and ask questions.  Together we can turn this  around. Join us on the 13th.  Donna Shugar  for "Concerned  Crow Readers"  More letters  on page 17  evident that Mr. Bush wanted  this war. I believe the United  Nations will be placed in a position of disrepute after being  politically manipulated in the  back rooms to the point that it  is now a purveyor of war not a  mechanism to avoid war and  promote peace.  The costs will be astronomical, thousands of deaths,  families smashed, billions of  dollars wasted, cities destroyed,  oil fields burned, untold mental  and physical misery inflicted on  people from many nations and  increased hatreds between  peoples of the world.  I ask, why? Wouldn't sanctions and diplomacy have worked given time and at far less  cost?  What we are witnessing is a  massive failure of the human  race to come to terms with dealing with conflict. A shameful  period in human history. A  tragedy of our own creation. A  sickening spectacle of many  leaders who think might is right  and human life is cheap.  Mr. Hussein was wrong in  what he did. But, all we have  now is two wrongs that will  never make a right. Especially  for the people who die and their  families.  i would hope that sooner or  later the common man would  refuse to be used as cannon fodder for the wealthy and the  military egomaniacs. Maybe  one day they will throw a war  and only the wealthy and the  generals will show up. We can  be sure peace will be arranged  promptly under those conditions.  We can only be hopeful that  this war will be analysed to  death by everyone and from this  we will learn that no one wins,  we all lose and we have to find  rational non-violent solutions.  We have no choice but to  find a better way, war is no  longer an option, the risks are  too total in their dimensions.  We must learn that peace is the  only answer. If we don't the  third world war may begin one  day in much the same way as  this one did and we will all be  able to watch the beginning of it  on our TV's. But only until the  lights go out, permanently!  As I said in my last letter, all  sides claim to be working with  God's help. But, surely, if there  is a God he must now weep  upon viewing his human creation!

Rodvlk R r^nW^aaaVH^alTaBBa      ,��� h,* .h�� ���,.,��� ,. .   ^^  by Robert S. Rodvtk  With the onslaught of the war  in the Persian Gulf, one has to  wonder what role is played in  this theatre of horrors by the  world's arms manufacturers?  What percentage of U.S.  foreign policy is mandated by  an industry which has supplied  both sides with these awesome  weapons of destruction, and  which industry has recently suffered the malaise of falling  profits due to the thawing of  US-Soviet relations.  Declining production in the  arms industry and the resulting  layoffs have been anathema to a  score of boardrooms (Raytheon  et al) across the U.S. as a result  of lessening tensions of a European military confrontation. To  what extent did monied directors of arms industries find their  fortunes plummeting in direct  proportion to an evaporating  'Balance of Terror' scenario?  And what of ihe zillions of  high-lech  Star Wars materiel  already gathering dust in endless  storage   facilities   throughout  America? What, after all, is the  point of manufacturing these  'smart-bombs'   and   'cruise'  (love-boat?) missiles and sneaky  'stealths' if the world should  manage to settle its differences  through   negotiation?  Heaven  forbid they should rest in peace!  No indeed, what was obviously needed was a good war.  Both   Panama  and Grenada  were such pitifully insignificant  tests  that  weapons stockpiles  weren't even subject to a scratched surface. Obviously a belter  proving ground would be needed.  Eliminate China though,  even if they did brutally repress  the youthful architects of  democracy at Tiananmin  Square, and have held the Tibetans hostage all these years.  Applying the banner of moral  justification against that  unbelievably populous regime  would simply be too costly���a  war we could never win.  Forget also the moral justification of defending a cry for  freedom in the Baltic���it would  mean fighting an equally powerful super-power and again ihe  magnitude of the battle would  be self-defeating.  No indeed,  what was needed was a good  war; one where moral justification could be reasonably applied and where vast amounts of  munitions could be expended.  That surely would be good for  business. Warehouses could be  emptied,  workers re-hired to  produce yet more and more explosives   and  gun-sights  and  night-vision goggles and all the  high-tech goodies that keep so  many employed in the land of  the free and the home of the  brave.  And what of the weapons  themselves? With names like  Stealth, Wild-Weasel, Wart-  Hog, Cruise and especially  Patriot, these instruments of  death have achieved a video arcade virtuosity, and in the process rallied a generation of  Nintendo junkies to enjoin the  flag-waving hysteria and jump  unwittingly into the fray.  Forget too that the World  Court of Justice condemned US  mining of Nicaragua's harbours  and that the United Nations  General Assembly denounced  the invasion of Panama as a  "flagrant violation of International Law"; for after all, who  could expect a super-power  armed with Stealths and  Patriots to submit to the same  morality il forces on other nations?  Kuwait, we are told, suffered  terrible indignities at the hands  of the Iraquis, and certain  thousands of deaths. It must be  of far less concern to these same  justificationists thai the invasion of Panama resulted in 4000  (mostly civilian) deaths in that  country. And what of little  Nicaragua where a democratically elected government  was systematically destroyed by  years of military and economic  devastation administered by the  same moralists now waging  death and destructon in the Persian Gulf?  Now here surely was a stage  of opportunity. A chance to  employ mercenaries as combatants while still keeping the  flow of munitions apace of  stock dividends. What a boon  to this community of businesses  engaged in the manufacture of  arms. Surely it must have been a  sad day for all those churchgoers when Daniel Ortega allowed a free vote to take place  in his country and the pretensions for war were displaced.  Things must have looked  bleak indeed for the Germans  and the British and the French  and all the nations of western  democracy whose munitions industries make important contributions to their GNP; for  after all, those crumby wars going on in Somalia and Liberia  and all those places where killing is as commonplace as starvation just didn't use enough  high-tech weaponry and poison  gas to keep western plants to  capacity, instead waging war  and death with less costly  Chinese and Argentinian and  South African poor-man's  varieties.  Then along came the invasion  of Kuwait, and never mind that  April Glaspie, US Ambassador  to Iraq, had de-facto suggested  that her country would turn a  blind eye. Never mind too that  for the eight years that Iraq battled with Iran over each other's  spiritual and territorial ambitions, that during those same  eight devastating years, the US  was one of Saddam's chief  death merchants.  No indeed, under the usual  guise of moral justification, the  United States assembled a coalition of western powers to whom  Arabian oil is reason enough to  wage war. And a curse on them  who would suggest that said oil  is, after all, a resource found  under their desert.  Certainly that undeniable fact  has little hearing when it is our  fuel-gluttonous lifestyle being  threatened. Better obviously to  shred in lifeless little pieces a  few hundred thousand A-rabs  (the  dirty  kind)  who  might  possibly restrict this resource,  than to adapt our consumptive  habits in any lessened way.  There are of course, a few good  Arabs, especially those whom  the western powers have installed and whom we continue to  prop up. Mid-East crude, after  all, continues to flow steadily as  the Sheiks and Emirs of those  fiefdoms while-away their  boredom in the gaming halls of  Monte Carlo and London and  where they can cavort with expensive European women while  they assuage their resulting  thirst with the finest alcoholic  beverages���forbidden fruits in  their own restrictive lands.  And so, to this North  American scenario of recession  and lofty interest rates, comes  the fortuitous invasion of Sad  dam of Kuwait���almost heaver  sent some might argue. Hen  then was the perfect theatre iti  which to test all these high-tech  weapons, a real chance to sec  what all the Patriots and  Stealths and Apaches could do.  Hitler, after all, had his Spain  and Maggie had her Falklands.  Nothing like a good war to  deflect those boring images of  the millions sleeping under  bridges and in subway stations  and old wrecks of cars and handy garbage dumpsters.  Instead, give the land of the  free a good war���one where the  enemy has a distinctly criminal  face, then rally all the 18 year-  olds to 'kick-ass'. All these fuzzy faced defenders of liberty  who have so assiduously  devoted their years on this  planet to the analytic study of  the reasons for conflict. These  pups have an obligation after  all, to defend our way of life.

In a report to the  Economic Development Commission, Chairman Maurice  Egan told members that ads had  recently been placed in local and  Vancouver papers for the lease  or sale of property at the park.  He said that letters would  also be sent to the firms who  had previously expressed interest in acquiring sites. A few  requests have already come in  for the concept plans. Egan said  that because of the expense in  preparing the plans, they would  be charging $100 for each copy,  "and it is also an indication that  they are seriously interested."  "The development phase will  go on for another 18 months to  three years," he added, "and  then we will be going on to the  management phase."  "The Coast Guard has completed the feasibility study for  the marine terminal and is moving on to the next phase of  preparing a business plan. It has  not been decided yet whether  they will run the terminal."  Egan said that the purchase  of Hillside by the Regional  District had taken place on  December 28, thereby "saving a  considerable sum in GST."  ROBERTS CREEK  School growth woes  by Janice Leighton, 886-3541  SCHOOL ADDITION  The situation is still the same.  The school has been granted $1  million by the Ministry of  Education to complete an addition. The proposed addition has  been estimated to cost  $1,800,000���some $800,000  over budget.  Letters were sent in  December to MLA Harold  Long and the Minister of  Education, but both letters were  either misplaced or lost. Both  Harold Long and the new  Minister of Education are away  on separate vacations to exotic  places and will not be back until  February. Any decisions from  either of them will be delayed.  Plans for the proposed addition will need to be changed if  the entire $1,800,000 is not  granted. New ideas of creative  ways to add on to the school for  less money are needed now in  case the total sum is not  available. A committee meeting  to discuss creative, money saving ideas will happen soon.  LIBRARY NOTES  Wilh the new library system  books are checked out for three  weeks instead of two. Library  cards are now issued (for a  bargain $3) and must be  presented   when   borrowing  books. Books checked out are  being filed under the due date  instead of a name. So, in order  for the librarian to refresh your  memory as to what and how  many books you have, the due  date is required.  If you're following 'The  Jewel and the Crown' on TV  and now want to read it, the  library has the complete Raj  Quartet by Paul Scott. Also of  interest to TV viewers is a copy  of 'The Ginger Tree'. Winter is  a time for reading. The library  is a good resource.

I've  been picking moth cocoons off  my wool wall hangings and  discovering holes already in my  winter sweaters, hats, and mitts.  For a while moths were flying  everywhere���in the house and  outside. Lately there have been  few moths visible, so I hoped  the invasion had subsided.  Recently, however, I rummaged  through a closet to get a wool  blanket and legions of tiny  mummies were falling off it.  The larvae were just emerging  to ravage the feast of wool  before them. Luckily I  discovered it before the feast  began. So, don't you too be lulled into believing the plague of  moths is behind us. Check those  woollens again.  New group  gives aid  to bereaved  by Rose Nicholson  Loss, of any kind, ���whether  it's the death of a spouse or  other family member, loss of  lifelong friends through relocation, or loss of a job, ���is often  a devastating personal trauma.  Those having this experience  often feel themselves cut off  from a lifestyle or a support  system that has sustained them  for many years. It can bring on  feelings of depression and  loneliness at a time when it  seems there is no one to turn to  for support.  On the Sunshine Coast a support group has recently been  formed to meet this need. 'Lost  and Found' offers those who  are trying to get on their feet  again the opportunity to meet  and talk to others who are having similar experiences.  The group, mainly seniors, is  led by Mary Christmas and  Anne Marie Lasuta, and meets  every other Thursday at the  Health Centre opposite the Post  Office in Sechelt.  "We have found," said  Christmas, "that there are  many people who are experiencing the upheaval of a loss, and  it's not only the loss of a  spouse, though that's usually  the most difficult one.  "It's almost as hard to come  to a new place and suddenly  find yourself without the family  and friends that you've known  all your life. At our first  meeting one woman said she  liked going out for lunch, but  didn't like going alone. There  was someone else in the group  who felt the same way, so they  agreed to go out together."  The new group offers  companionship, confidentiality,  a sympathetic ear, support arid  above all, the opportunity to  socialize. The next meeting will  be on Thursday, January 31  from 2 pm to 4 pm and  everyone is welcome. For mon  information call 885-6101.

It  just tears you apart."  These words in a pamphlet  put out by the Alzheimer Society of Canada pretty well sum up  the situation for the family and  friends of a person who has  Alzheimer's disease. January is  Alzheimer Awareness Month,  and ihe Society has prepared an  information packet to help  those who have to cope with the  illness.  Although identified by the  German neurologist Alois  Alzheimer in 1906, there is still  no known prevention or cure  for the disease. Positive  diagnosis is difficult and is arrived at only through a process  lhal eliminates other similar  dysfunctions of ihe brain. In  fact, some 50 per cent of patients referred to Alzheimers  specialists prove not to have the  illness.  Characterized by loss of  function of specific nerve cells  in ihe brain due to the loss of  the chemical neurotransmitter  acetylcholine (ACh) which is  responsible for memory, the  disease is characterized by  devastating memory loss,  disorientation, impaired judgement, inability to communicate,  and loss of intellectual function.  With no absolute diagnosis  save for an autopsy, the disease  is very difficult to pinpoint in its  early stages, because there are  no outward physical signs of illness. The only indications are  subtle memory lapses for simple  things like names and addresses,  the inability lo remember  answers to questions that were  asked a few minutes ago, difficulty in reading, and so on.  As the disease progresses, a  variety of symptoms may appear���confusion, irritability,  personality and behaviour  changes,���until eventually the  patient is totally incapable of  caring for her/himself.  The burden of caring for an  Alzheimer victim, especially in  ihe early stages, usually falls on  the family, and it can be a  devastating and exhausting experience.  Because the disease  causes such unpredictable  behaviour, the patient cannot  be left alone, so care is a  24-hour-a-day, on-going job.  "I couldn't even get a  homemaker," said one woman  whose husband was ill for six  years. "He wouldn't have a  stranger in the house."  Burnout is a very real problem for those responsible for  the care of an Alzheimer victim.  The physical and emotional  stress can become overwhelming, until finally there comes a  time when the difficult decision  must be made to put the patient  in a care home.  On the Sunshine Coast most  of these people can be accommodated at Shorncliffe or  Totem Lodge. But there are a  few, the 'wanderers', who must  go to an institution that can  provide the security to deal with  one of the most difficult  manifestations of the disease,  the tendency to wander away  and get lost. At the moment,  Please turn to page II  New time for meeting  by lauralee SojB, 885-5212  The monthly meeting of the  Davis Bay/Wilson Creek Community Association is going to  be held on Tuesday afternoon,  February 12, starling at I pm.  This is an experiment so if you  haven't been able to go lo evening meetings, now is your  chance.  The guest this time will be  talking about seniors. Her name  will be forthcoming in the next  column (I misplaced my notes).  It was suggested by someone  that we should have more pot  luck suppers. The Annual  General Meeting is coming up in  March so we may have a pot  luck supper for that. It can be  brought up at the next meeting.  We have asked for a donation of a water heater for the  Scout Hall but never said why.  The Scout Hall is being updated  with the addition of a second  bathroom, its own electricity  and there will be a phone. It is  going to be used by Catch 16 for  a meeting place for youngsters,  probably starling in March.  When open this will be supervised by adults. They are looking  for volunteers.

SOTS GATHERING  Last Saturday night the  Backeddy Pub was bouncing to  the skirl of the pipes when the  Sechelt Legion Pipe Band turned out in full regalia to entertain.  The genial hosts were John  and Margaret Mills, John being  a drummer with the band. Their  daughter Kim, along with little  Kate McRae delighted with their  Highland dancing. Another  pleasing addition to the evening  was the accordian music by  John Morrison, who later surprised many with his skill as a  piper.  This kind of evening was a  first for the Backeddy, and the  support and turnout should give  encouragement for future special evenings.  WELCOME BEACH  It seems like a long time since  the last social event at the hall,  so you will be pleased to note  that plans are underway for a  special event in February.

Spring fever.  There's no tonic like a  beautiful, sunny day in the middle of winter. You can almost  see people's spirits jumping up  and clicking their heels in midair. Perfect strangers strike up  conversations in the street and  everybody smiles. It's like an ad  for the promise of warm  weather to come.  This is the time of year when  gardeners waver back and forth  between being cranky because  they can only play at gardening,  unable 10 really dig their fingers  into the earth yet, and being  ecstatic over the arrival of  another new seed catalogue,  pouring over it like a gambler  studying a racing form.  In their mind's eye they can  already see this year's garden in  full bloom.  And then the fog rolled in  and pulled the blinds down over  Egmont. On the water, compasses and intuitive navigation  were in full use and foghorns  bleated out their single note for  all to hear as boaters appeared  then disappeared through the  thick patches of low lying  cloud.  The nights got colder again as  the skies above all this thickness  were clear and starry and down  below, in places, the roads were  frosty. Fear not. The official arrival of spring is only seven and  a half weeks away, so even if the  groundhog does see its shadow  next week, we'll be there before  vou know it.

Plans were finalized three weeks ago lhal would change  three Sechelt intersections and make Teredo Street the long-  promised "new" Highway 101 for traffic wanting lo bypass  Cowrie and proceed through Sechelt with as little Interference  as possible.  The main focus of the plan would be the intersection of  Wharf and Cowrie Streets, and, as reported by the Coast  News three weeks ago, the cenotaph located at that intersection would remain untouched, with the radius of Ihe approach onto or off of Cowrie Street from Wharf being  decreased to force traffic to slow. The overall effect would be  to make Wharf Street less congested and more conducive to  pedestrian traffic.  Assurances were given by the Ministry of Highways that  most of the work should be finished by March 31, the end of  the fiscal year and deadline for use of the money budgeted by  the provincial government for the project.  Tax review  Two hundred tax exempt properties will have their status  reviewed, it was decided by the Sechelt Council.  Alderman Doug Reid, the council member who originally  made the motion in late December, restated that, while all 200  properties would be reviewed, only 15 or 20 stood to lose their  exempt classification.  Council members are each to provide Ihe names of  qualified individuals from which three members of a review  committee will be chosen.  The review committee will analyze the 200 properties and  recommend to council which should retain their current  classification.  Council said public participation would be welcomed, provided those interested in joining the committee not be affiliated to one of the groups under review.

These tips can help you manage  an unforseen situation.  Emergency Preparedness  Canada has put out some tips to  ensure well-being.  ��� Always keep a battery-  powered radio, flashlight and  spare batteries on hand. In  many emergencies, telephone  lines and power may be the first  thing to go and a radio will be  your only link with the outside  world. (We had electrical  outages during December.)  ��� Make sure that you know  how and where to turn off your  utilities (e.g. gas, water, electricity).  ��� If you use medication or  specialized medical equipment  (e.g. inhalers, eyeglasses, hearing aid batteries, etc.) make sure  you have an extra supply on  hand at all times.  ��� Always keep on hand an  emergency survival kit containing food, sleeping bags, medication, (an updated medications  list���one for the bag and one on  the fridge), first aid kit and bottled water. Rotate food and  water to ensure freshness.  ��� Keep a list of emergency  telephone numbers (e.g. fire,  police, ambulance, poison control, etc.) posted in a prominent  place.  ��� Take a first aid course  either through the Red Cross or  St. John's Ambulance.  ��� If you ever have to evacuate  your home, make sure you have  an evacuation kit containing a  flashlight, radio and batteries,  important papers, identification  and cash, medication, mobility  aids, clothes, sleeping bag and  food.  ��� In an emergency, use the  telephone only if absolutely  necessary.    Chances    are  emergency crews will need all  available lines.  Some time ago St. John's  Ambulance visited many seniors  and handed out papers for you  to list your medication and had  you store these. Please update  these lists.  Drivers, check your license  plate tags to see when they need  to be renewed. At the same  time, check up on your driver's  license to see when it should be  renewed.  At 6 pm, January 26, we saw  a good spaghetti dinner at the  Hall on Mermaid. The spaghetti  was served with a low acid  tomato sauce. There was a good  turn-out and after the dinner  the dining tables came down  and the card tables came up for  some lively action during the  evening. Thank you Patti, John  and all your helpers.  We would like to thank Dr.  Myhill-Jones for his interesting  talk on M.E. that he gave at the  General Meeting on January 17.  Crafts are busy making hang  towels for the kitchen and I saw  an array of bunnies in spring  colours being made for the  Spring Tea. In the section for  the men's crafts, the wood and  glue guns were seen used by  hands busy on bird cages. They  say they need more hands���so  men, come out to crafts.  Oil paintings are covering the  dark boards and they make a  wonderful addition to the hall.  The painters were Tetly White,  Fran Cornwall, John Petula,  Martha Griffiths and I en  Herder.  The hall is shining from the  efforts of housekeeping. The  floors and windows are bright  and clean.  Memberships can be obtained  from Kay McKenzie.  There will be no Bingo oq  February 14 and it resumes orl  February 28.  Virginia Eckdahl has been a  wonderful crafts chairman. She  would like a rest. We need two'  people for crafts chairs.

The letters point out that "the vast majority of your potential customers" reside in the Regional District, and are "less  than happy and greatly concerned that Marcorp Development Corporation has now applied to the Town of Gibsons  for inclusion within the town's boundaries, with the obvious  result that taxes generated by this development would accrue  to the town, instead of to the Regional District."  by George Cooper, 886-8520  "Come out and be heard."  On Tuesday, January 29, in  Elphinstone Secondary Cafeteria at 7:30 pm, the public is invited to express its views on  what is wanted on the Sunshine  Coast by way of facilities and  programs in recreation.  As well, we can hear a report  and recommendations on recreation needs on the Sunshine  Coast. The report sums up what  the consultants have learned  from questionnaires and from  interviews of groups interested  in various aspects of recreation  here on the Coast.  These consultants, a professional group, PERC, have  already presented their illustrated report lo our four  local governments.  This meeting will be a forum  for the final input of the  public's ideas for recreation.  Every form of recreation is to  be considered���indoors, outdoors, sports, crafts, whatever.  All this follows three years of  ground work by a volunteer  association (PALS), a group  which has worked for a concerted effort by our four local  governments to plan for facilities and programs for the  whole of ihe Sunshine Coast.  Need   further  information?  Call Sandy McBride, 885-5717.  CANADIANS IN THE GULF  Not so many of us there at  the Legion Cenotaph a week  ago last Sunday; it was not an  excited protest gathering.  Knowing what is expected of  a soldier, we came out to show  our support of those serving in  the Middle East. Most of us  elder veterans there that day  know the strain that being in action or awaiting action puts  upon the soldier, the sailor, the  airman.  We would not wish that on  anybody at any time.  But, since they have responded willingly to service outside  the country, we want them to  know we understand their feelings, and we hold them in high  regard.  GOLF HONOURS  Last Wednesday evening at  the annual meeting of ihe Sunshine Coast Golf Club, Keith  Wright was made an honorary  member. Keith is now one of  three honorary members of the  club.  Wilma Sim was made an  honorary member some 15  years ago in recognition of her  work in forming the original  group that set out to build the  course. "She pushed us lo put  the vision into practical terms,"  said Roy Taylor,  "and then  kept   us   going   by   her  persistence."  Roy Taylor, who was builder  of the clubhouse, golf instructor, and general manager of the  fledgling club, was himself  made honorary member four  years ago.  Speaking of Keith Wright's  contribution to the club, Roy  said, "Keith provided machinery and wages when we were  clearing the course back in  1967. Supplied gravel too, all as  a donation. Then on opening  day in June, 1969, Keith was a  generous host to the visiting  golfers who came to celebrate  the occasion in our first tournament."  The meeting responded with  a standing ovation for the three  honorary members.  VICTORIA VISIT  George  Matthews, a   one  time teacher in Elphinstone and  in Chatelech, as well as being  for several years editor of the  Coast News, is at present part  of the education ministry's curriculum branch. He told us that  Geoff Madoc-Jones, another  secondary school teacher here  until quite recently, is now an  assistant to the Dean of Education, SFU, and is in regained  good health. His wile, the  former Jennifer Kadota, is now  on staff in Centennial Secondary in Coquitlam.  On the way to his office  George pointed out the offices  of the Victoria Jazz Society,  and told me of the renowned  jazz festival in that city this  April 17 to 21. Result was a  handful of brochures to bring  home; they're available at the  Tourist Information in Pioneer  Park.  Pender wildlife  The Pender Harbour Wildlife Society is holding an Open  House on Sunday, February 3, it the Lions Hall on the  Highway past the Secondary School.  Wildlife officials will be there between 1 pm and 4 pm with  maps and plans. There will be the opportunity to discuss  areas to be studied as additions to the provincial parks in the  area, as well as Ihe goals of the provincial park system.  This meeting will provide ideas for input at the public  meeting to be held in Sechelt by the Ministry of Parks, for  their Parks Plan 90 project.  wpp'  <*mt m  ���..   :��� ���  mESSL  Samuel Simpson  Doctor of Chiropractic  ��� BY APPOINTMENT ONLY   ^k  Wed., Fri.,  m^    9am  Spm  m  Thurs.,  ^S7         Noon  ���Spm  721 Winn Rd., Gibsons  886-3622  Csr.E i- ic a Friendly Cafe  Relax and Enjoy  ���A superbly satisfying  meal  ���A "famous" Harbour Cafe  home made dessert ��-.

In Gibsons, peace activism  has prompted veterans of  World War II and Korea to  make statements of their own  and January 20 members of  Gibsons Legion Branch 109  gathered at their cenotaph to  voice support for troops abroad  and at home.  In a statement from the  Legion to the Minister of National Defence, William  Mcknight, Legion president  Larry Boyd said the Legion  "and other local organizations  gathered together to deplore the  militant activities of so called  Peace demonstrators, intent  upon undermining Canada's  support of the United Nations  to restore peace in the Middle  East...We support Ihe United  Nations decision to avert the  spread of violence by the  Government of Iraq and the  slaughter of innocent people as  a result of their ambition to  control the Arab world."  The position taken by the  Gibsons Branch isn't completely shared by other veterans on  the Sunshine Coast.  Joe Adams of the Madeira  Park Legion Branch 112 says  membership there is similar to  Switzerland���neutral.  "I haven't heard anything  negative in normal conversation  here to stop the war but it's  about a 50-50 proposition  here," Adams said. "The peace  activists don't really understand  the situation though. Nobody  wants to send their mothers,  daughters, sons and fathers into  a conflict. It's not something  you want to do but have to do.  "I'm unsure about the vets  here but most agree you have to  stop an aggressive country like a  Germany (in WWII)."  Branch 109, in Gibsons,  however, are also concerned  with, the statement says, "the  harassment of dependants of  some of the Armed Forces Personnel in Victoria. We urge the  Government of Canada to take  prompt and effective action to  counter such attempts to cause  distress amongst dependants."  A WWII veteran, a member  of the Merchant Marine(s) in  the Pacific Theatre and a resident of the Coast for a number  of years, told the Coast News  that while he supported Canadian Forces in the Gulf, he took  issue wilh some veterans who  ardently support Canada undertaking and offensive role in the  Gulf.  "Most of the men who fight  the wars die."  Members of Branch 109 of the Royal Canadian Legion gathered  January 20, to demonstrate their support for United Nations'  armed forces in the Persian Gull theatre.        -Jwi Johnstone photo  Coast News, January 28,1991  Alzheimer support  it  Continued from page 6  Beacon Hill Lodge in West  Vancouver is the closest place  available that can provide that  service.  Alzheimer Support Groups  can be a lifeline for those who  must cope with the disease.  "Every time 1 had a problem,"  said one member of such a  group, "there was someone  there who had met and dealt  with the same thing."  "It's an opportunity to get  away, if only for an hour, and  talk to someone who knows  what you're going through."  The Alzheimer Society of  Canada recommends that the  family doctor be the first contact when the disease is  suspected. Because early symp  toms are so vague, the patient  and family are often the best  source of information. Later,  tests involving neurologists,  psychiatrists and psychologists  can pinpoint the problem, and a  variety of community services  are available to the patient and  family.  The local Alzheimer Support  Group meets the last Tuesday of  every month alternately at the  Bethel Baptist Church starting  in January and at the Kiwanis  Care Home starting in  February. They have a wide  selection of information for  those who need it, and they can  be contacted through the-  medical clinics in Sechelt and  Gibsons.  Sechelt sewer study  At their January 23 meeting, Sechelt Council voted In  favour of expanding the focus of . sewer line study for West  Sechelt.  The study would look at the feasibility of expanding the  area serviced by "community sewer Him.," as opposed to individual septic systems for each properly.  This would provide service to more homes and, theoretically, lower the cost of overall service.  The only voice of protest cane from Alderman Peggy  Wagner who stated that if a community system fails, it would  likely cost those serviced by it a great deal in both expense and  frustration.  She suggested that before new houses are allowed to be  built, the property be examined to ensure the viability of an  individual system.  ���  tmff:  *  *���  all-'-                                                      '-'iS  LANDING REV1TALIZATION  We're looking for ideas!

Ihe second is the well-  equipped, well-worn carpenter's  belt hanging from the trim waist  of none other than the director  Of the Driftwood Players' upcoming production of "Steel  Maitnolias."  Ted Price's eyes crinkle with  amusement at the writer's less  than firm grasp of the realities  of community theatre and their  budgetary constraints. The  director simply doesn't just...  well...direct. He also does  manual labour!  "Who actually chose 'Steel  Magnolias".' I suppose I did. I  mean, I put forward the play  for consideration, My Stage  Manager Bruce Milkes approached me about doing  another project together last  summer. We were both keen on  the idea���we'd done 'Crimes of  Ihe Heart' and 'The Diviners'  for the Driftwood Players."  Price wriggled about on the  uncomfortable bridge chair  he'd chosen over a large,  upholstered relic because, as he  said with a grin, "It is just a bil  loo throne-like for me."  "Magnolias was written by  an actor���Robert Harling���in  , three weeks. This was after he  . couldn't make il work as a  ; screenplay." The irony of Harl-  | ing's efforts ultimately becom-  ; ing a monster Hollywood hit  ; was not lost on Price, who smil-  ���ed appieciatively.  "It's a nice combination of  TED PRICE  commercial entertainment value  and theatrical substance���and  the rights finally became  available," noted the actor-  director, adding "It's not television for ihe stage���and there's a  force tending to push theatre in  that direction. Safe. Bland...  It's a play about love and  friendship, Ihe importance of  strength within the relationships  of these six women."  Price was enthusiastic rather  than concerned about the differences between the movie and  the stage play, although he  readily admitted that, "I guess  every director considers  people's expectations when  they're dealing with a vehicle  which has been (turned into) a  successful film���you know, will  audiences want only what  they're familiar with?"  $109,000  $ 99,900  $112,900  Contact Ham  TWIN OAKS  DEVELOPMENT CORP.  10%% financing, brand new 1620 sq.  ft. 3 bedroom townhome.

"Surprisingly enough,  even alter seeing the film version, people seem (willing) to let  go and get into the different  world of Ihe stage version quite  easily."  Price is quite pleased with the  cast he has assembled for Ihe  12-performance run. "It's really  unpredictable as to who will  show for auditions. This lime a  large number of women evinced  interest before we announced  the choice of material."  The director is asked why  casting half a dozen roles from  a large pool of hopefuls (a  do/en auditioned for  Magnolias') should prove all  that difficult.  "There's got to be a consis-  tenl level of truthfulness within  the imaginary circumstances in  I.ANIK I.eBI.ANC  the play," proclaimed Price,  slipping unconsciously into a bit  of down-and-diny, authentic  directorial jargon for a moment. "In other words, you  can't cast a 25 year old woman  if the role calls for a six year old  girl���even if you rouge the adult  up good, and slick her in a Barbie outfit! Fantasy, of course, is  a special genre. There's exceptions."  Talk about casting shifted to  the role of Annelle, the teenage  beautician played���obviously  with script alterations���by the  undeniably grown-up Daryl  Hannah. The stage version calls  for a 17 to 18 year old Annelle,  so Ted went shopping for a  youngster.  "I go into the schools a lol lo  recruit. I always know I'll find  one or two with the talent, the  hunger, the dedication. Carrie  Mahlman at Chatelech put me  on to Melanie." Price paused,  as if trying to shape a complex  memory into an easily  clarifiable image. "Expenses are  high on the show... nothing we  can trifle with...I have to look  for maturity and responsibility  in every actor I audition���and  it's especially important when it  comes to casting a youngster."  The high-decibel whine of a  circular saw danced an aural  duet with Price's next comment.  "There was a kind of...of  courage in Melanie's reading.  She didn't back away from the  emotions. This brought me  straight up in my chair."  A glance at his watch brought  Price straight oul of his bridge  chair. After all, the show opens  on February 6, less than two  weeks away as of this interview.  But Price the 'producer' surfaces for a moment: "I'd really  appreciate il if you could mention thai there seems to be a lol  of people who want lo see this  show. I urge people to come  early���in the run, that is���and  cancel the risk of not being able  to get a ticket."  Sinking casually down info a  chair at the Coast News' Sechelt  offices, 16 year old Melanie  LeBlanc nervously recalls the  kharmic quality of her rendezvous with what she strongly  hopes will evolve into an acting  career of substance and longevity-  "Thai morning I got  up���and I was feeling  really...dead! Couldn't find  anything...sloppy...lo wear...  not even my old sweats! " Ms.  LeBlanc starts to laugh, cups a  hand in front of her mouth. "I  wound up looking half-decent,  you know? I had this strange  feeling that something was going to happen that day...and..."  Her voice dropped, assuming  an appropriately...significant  appreciation of the subject at  hand. "I heard Ms. Mahlman's  voice saying 'Melanie LeBlanc,  come to the office'...And I  auditioned that very day!"  Melanie, exhibiting that particular kind of confidence which  has nothing to do with  ego���and which is "inc-  ulcaed" into adults at expensive self-help seminars���for-  Ihrightly stated that, "I think I  can handle (the role). There's  not a lot of lines so much as  there is physical body language.  I'm always on the stage. My  character is really insecure and  afraid to show her past."  Melanie toys wilh her long,  black hair (which, apparently,  Ted would have preferred  significantly shorter) and seems  to slip into another, wispier  aspect of her personal reality.  "I had a rotten past!" Precisely  who'd had a rotten past was  unclear until Melanie said, "I  was married to this, like, drug  dealer when I was very young.  He left me. Took my money.  Jewelry. Clothes���the car.  Which is how my .character  ���Annelle���wound up at  Truvy's Beauty Shop."  Working with five other  women, all older and more  theatrically experienced, wasn't  the ordeal Melanie's imagination had conjured. "At first I  felt intimidated by their  reading���their talent.

Although I didn't realize it at  the time, the Wobblies had  strong European and Communist connections. Words like  'bourgeois' were in common use  among barely-educated loggers.  That was a heritage of Wobbly  indoctrination.

Moving  from camp to camp, he paid  close attention and gradually  worked his way up the ladder.  His great ambition was to  become a high-rigger. "During  this phase, the hook-and-riggers  would generally give you a  chance to help them up the tree.  I did this at every opportunity  and soon began to get the idea.  Before long I was hiring out as a  second rigger."  Red went up to Inglewood on  Vancouver Island in this capacity and here he ran into Hank  Norton again. "This was three  or four years after Echo Bay  and he'd forgotten me by this  time. He was supposed to hang  the rigging on a tree one Sunday  but he was either sick or  hungover so he asked me to do  it. I'd got to be a pretty fair rigger by this time���not the best  on the Coast or anything but 1  was good at hanging blocks. So  I rigged the tree for him. When  Hank came round to thank me,  I told him who I was. 'You fired  me one time', I said. 'Told me  I'll never make a goddamn log  ger. What do you think now?'  Hank had fired many men in his  time but he looked closely at me  and I guess he vaguely remembered. 'Well, kid', he said, 'I  figure I done you a favour giving you the axe. It must have  made you try harder.  ...lo be continued  Arts Centre news  SUNDAY CONCERT  Be sure to get your tickets for  'Songs of Love' at the Arts  Centre on February 3, at 2 pm,  before they're all gone.

We persisted through on our journey, sometimes wondering if we had not taken an incorrect turn as the miles passed and still we saw little civilization.  But as usual, I panic prematurely, when soon before us was Irvines Landing Marine Pub, a  handsome newly renovated building. Outside sit picnic tables for the warm summer months  when people wish to eat outdoors. The pub's interior decor is turquoise and wood���very  upbeat and clean. Large clean windows streamline the whole length of the pub so you can gaze  oul onto Pender Harbour and Frances Peninsula.  There's camping facilities to one side, a boat launch and small marina, and more picnic  tables to the other side. It's your one-stop shopping facility���that is for boaters.  Established as a trading post in 1865 by an English settler named Charles Irvine, it later  became the Irvines Landing Hotel and Store in 1898. At that time, it served early Union  Steamer settlers and loggers, but now is a yacht anchorage and vacation spot.  A grandfatherly waiter, smiling his very cordial greeting, welcomed us to Ihe pub. Draping  suspenders that held his rolled jeans, the most pleasant waiter was prompt with his service and  no sooner were we silting than we were sipping our cocktails.  Halibut and chips (S7.4S), with a ship-load of fries, so the menu claimed, was my companion's choice. She much enjoyed ihe large halibut pieces surrounded by a light batter. Both  pieces did in fact lay on a ship-load of fat fries.  1 had their corned beef on rye ($5.95) stacked high, as the menu claimed, along with a salad  that contained all the vegetables one can think of���tomato, red cabbage, carrots, onions, etc.  The sandwich stacked with an inch of very tender corned beef, was garnished with a dill pickle  and nicely satisfied my appetite.  Their menu offered a good variety of foods: burgers lo steak sandwiches; tiger prawns to hot  shrimp metis; three types of salads for the calorie conscious; soups and appelizers like chicken  wings, scallops, and shrimp. Next time, however, I'll attempt entry to this picturesque location on a yacht or a sailboat���ohl even a canoe would do just fine!

Senior girls B-ball  A busy, successful season  Lighthouse Pub Flashers (1991), following their heroic efforts at Victoria's Pacific Cup Tournament.  Left to right, (back row) Barry Wingfleld, Dan Piotrowski, Wayne Sacca, Cord Pollock, Mark Benson, Pat Cromie, Ryner Kuntzi. (Front Row) Rand Rudland, I.C. Blanleil, Gordy Ross, Eddy  Berinstein, Al Calwell, Brett McGillivray, Kevin Hayes.  An oldtimers' rookie  hy Mark Benson  Last weekend, the  Lighthouse Pub Old-Timers Ice  Hockey Team journeyed to Victoria, BC for the 15th Annual  Pacific Cup. Since the Tournament's inception in 1976, il has  grown from 52 teams to this  year's record 100 learns, which  makes this the largest "Gentlemen's" (as we prefer to be called) tournament in the world!  Teams are assigned to one of  eight levels of play. If your team  is relatively successful, it is mov-  ed up to a higher level at the  next sanctioned tournament.  Teams that are not competitive  in (heir delegated division are  assigned to a lower level of play  at the next tournament, thus  assuring competitive hockey,  which is the name of the game.  Old-Timers' Hockey (or  should 1 say Gentlemen's���il  helps us feel younger) is Ihe  fastest growing team sport in  Canada. You have to be a  minimum of 35 years of age.  There is now a 50 years and  over league with many men  playing well into their sixties!  Now that  I  am  35  years  young, I feel that I have a new  lease on my hockey playing life  and look forward to a hopefully  long and illustrious career. This  was my first Old-Timers' tournament. I was a rookie again.  The last time I was a rookie was  15 years ago when I came out of  Minor Hockey and began playing in commercial leagues. The  next (and last) time I will be a  rookie is when I em eligible for  50 years and over hockey, 15  years from now, if my legs hold  out thai long.  In our first game wc played  the Port Alberni Old Puckers.  Ryncr Kuntzi scored two goals  but we ended up losing a heart-  breaker, 3-2.  Our second game was against  Ihe Coquitlam Capitals. Gord  Pollock scored a pair of goals  and defenceman Wayne Sacco  chipped in a single tally. Final  score Capitals 5 - Lighthouse 3.  The third game was against  last year's champions, the Edmonton Old Slicks. This was  our chance to redeem ourselves.  Ryner Kuntzi notched a pair of  goals while J.C. Blanleil and  Pat Cromie bagged singles, but  it just wasn't in the cards and  we bowed out of the tournament with a 5-4 loss.  We were in a position to win  any or all of our games if we  clicked together as a team and  the stage was set for someone to  be a hero. But that's what  hockey is all about.  Exercise, comradeship, and  the odd cold one blend together  to form lasting memories.  Gentlemen's Hockey is indeed a  national pastime.  The Chatelech Senior Girls  Basketball team has been enjoying a busy and successful season  to date. The season began with  an eight team tournament at  Seycove Secondary in Deep  Cove. With fine play by Candy  Clark and red-hot shooting by  Nikki Acton the team went 2-2  and finished a well-earned  fourth place. Both the referees  and opposing coaches commented on the Chatelech girls'  hard work coupled with fair  Play.  The team began the new year  with a tournament in Vancouver at Handsworth Senior  Secondary. The prospect of  playing much larger schools did  not seem to daunt the girls and  they opened with a come from  behind, one point victory over  Burnaby South.  Outstanding defense from  Jackie Sager and Crystal Dixon  as well as some clutch baskets  by Katherine Denham paved the  way for the girls' victory. The  girls reached the finals but had  to settle for second place, losing  to the excellent host team. Carla  Wellings played extremely well  in a hard fought loss.  The very next weekend saw  the team in Pemberton for a  seven team tournament. The  girls began with a 32-20 win  over Seycove. Beren Tomkies  and Jeannette Gory dominated  the paint en route to the first  victory. A hard fought game  against Pemberton followed  with the girls coming up a few  points short. The final score  was 43-35 with the enthusiastic  Pemberton fans making it a truly exciting game. The girls were  determined to win the game for  the third place trophy and win  they did!  A stellar 28 point performance by Candy Clark, again  selected to the all-star team, and  all around good play by Nicole  Jackson earned the team third  place and a 50-37 victory over  Lilloett. Two grade eight girls,  Devon Brown and Erica Acton,  traveled with the team this trip  and played very well against the  much older and more experienced girls. Both contributed to the  cause with good defense and  even managed to score a few  points.  Other team members are  Maria Peters, Katrina Gleadow  and Claire Smith. Coaches Tom  Daniels and Danny Jakobs are  proud of the team's achievements to date and the team is  looking forward to  demonstrating their skills in  front of the home fans.

Local  sailor  and crew  excel  by Stuart Bumstde  The Sunshine Coast may not  have Dennis Connor to brag  about, but it does have Patrick  La Grandeur. And he's a much  nicer guy than Dennis apparently is.  La Grandeur, a resident of  Roberts Creek and employee of  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper, is  a member of the Gibsons Yacht  Club and an avid sail boat  racer. Together with his intrepid  crew of fellow racing enthusiasts, La Grandeur finished  third overall in the Division  "C" of the 1990 Pacific Handicap Racing Fleet (PHRF)  tournaments.  The skipper modestly  acknowledges the potential for  a first place division finish in the  foreseeable future.  La Grandeur noted that the  PHRF tournaments are divided  into racing categories according  to the size of one's boat. The  categories range from 'A' to  'E', so La Grandeur's own division 'C stature is not a reflection of his abilities, but rather  an indication of his boat's  overall length. Prophetically  christened "Glory", it is a 34  foot sloop.  The races, staged in English  Bay as well as in areas of the  Georgia Strait, are held about  once a month through the racing season (mid-March to mid-  October) and cover distances of  five to 135 miles. Sometimes  three 'heats' are held on one day  wilh the average of the three being counted as one race.  As for actually winning a  race, victory does not come  easily. "Most of the competition (as many as 15 boats in a  given race) have sailed the same  waters for some time and know  how to work the currents," said  La Grandeur, adding that his  own knowledge of the tidal currents in the racing areas is, and  has to be, extensive.  Some of the technical factors  contributing to victory, as cited  La Grandeur's sloop "Glory", as seen In action.  On the Rocks  by Harry Turner  by La Grandeur, are a clean  boat (La Grandeur, also a scuba  diver, cleans the bottom of his  boat before every race) and  good sails. He noted that those  who manufacture the sails were  more than willing to improve  the quality of their product  almost annually.  But, while clean boats, high-  tech sails and knowledge of  tidal currents are well and good,  La Grandeur attributes the  lion's share of his success to his  six to eight person crew, some  of whom have raced with him  for over 10 years. "You need a  dedicated crew," he said, "and  I've got one of the best."  While it is most assuredly a  competitive spirit and desire to  win that propels La Grandeur  and crew to excellence, La  Grandeur said that his most ex-  hilerating moment in racing  came "not from a hard fought,  narrowly contested victory, but  from the weather encountered  on one particular race, the  'Swiftsure', back in '82."  The Swiftsure is the season  opener,'a 135 ' mile sprint  originating in Victoria. During  the race in question, high winds  and accompanying turbulent  waters on the return run forced  the "broaching" of many of the  competing boats.  Explains La Grandeur:  "Broaching occurs when, after  descending from the crest of a  large wave, the following wave  breaks over the bow of the boat  causing it to be turned sideways  and capsize." Broaching, according to the Glory's skipper, is  an understood hazard of racing  and the boat can easily be  righted.  Of this particular race, La  Grandeur says, "Boats all  around us were going over like  bowling pins. We went over  twice and almost (went over) a  dozen more."  Still, 'Glory' finished in the  middle of a 60-pack!  When asked if it was embarrassing to have one's boat  "broach", La Grandeur said  that it was something that  should happen at least twice a  year, because if it doesn't it  means "you're not pushing  your boat hard enough."  Reining in, however, has  never been one of Patrick La  Grandeur's problems. Bringing  along enough dry clothing is, of  course, another story.  When do you sweep a stone?  Even the most experienced  curlers have trouble with this  one. Here are some general  rules that can be followed  however.  Learn to be able to grasp the  condition of the ice quickly and  be alert to any change in conditions. In the early ends of a  game, the ice is usually heavier  because of frost and the fresh  pebble.  During the game ice conditions change because of a variety of factors. Be aware of the  dehumidifier; if it kicks in, the  humidity will drop usually making the ice a little slower for a  while.  Also the number of curlers on  (he sheets have an effect on the  ice conditions. If there are lots  of curlers out on the ice, the ice  is usually keener and if you are  the last team to leave the ice, the  ice will often be slower because  the temperature will drop.  This really shows up in the  national championships where  the arena stands may be full or  empty. As the stands empty,  drastic changes can take place in  the ice.  Know exactly what shot the  skip has called for and the  weight required for Ihe execution of the shot. Slower shots  usually require more sweeping  than faster shots. Commence  sweeping immediately if there  isn't sufficient weight. Fast  shots may require sweeping if  ihey are off line when they are  released. Remember a rock  moves off line less the w-- it is  swepl.  Follow and keep close watch.  Beginners often leave a stone if  Ihey are called off sweeping or  if they figure Ihe rock is doing  fine. This is often a fatal  mistake because the rock may  suddenly catch something and  need immediate help. This is  especially true on frosly or dirty  ice. Keep a light sweeping motion in the path of a critical  stone if the weight is close to  what is required so that any  foreign matter in the path of the  stone is removed.  Keep in touch with the skip  during the sweeping. The outside sweeper should continually  look up to judge the distance to  the house and also relay any  messages from the skip to the  inside sweeper. It h not a good  idea for an inside sweeper to  look up or they might burn the  stone. The skip in the house is  the one who calls the line and  the sweepers should be judging  the weight. Signal the skip if  there is more than enough  weight to complete the shot.

I clearly remember having to  make notes in school on "Current Events" and yet my  Catholic friend Gerald Bowman  and I, after reading the same  newspapers and listening to the  radio, came out with extremely  opposite views.  From what I had read and  heard, Hitler was sending  bombers into Spain to Tight  against a democratically elected  government; and that with the  backing of our Prime Minister  of Canada, MacKenzic King.  The other similarity is that  the Jewish people were involv  ed; but First let me mention that  supposedly Mackenzie King,  before becoming Prime  Minister of Canada, had been a  strike breaker for Ford Motor  Company, and I've been told  that "Henry" the founder had  no love for Jews. I happened to  mention this to my niece who  had made an in depth study of  the "Jewish People" and she  nodded in agreement. Many  countries believed the Jews were  getting too much Financial  power.  On looking at the past and  the present, it seems that the  more things change, the more  Ihey remain the same; and that  more people have been killed in  the name of God than in the  name of the Devil.  The British Government  pretended to be surprised in  1939 when Hitler put his war  machinery into high gear���and  yet in 1936 on Ihe train on my  way from Saskatchewan to  Pioneer Gold Mines in BC, I  had the experience of talking  with a British gentleman who  said he was from the "British  Navy" and in his very British  accent he said he was going i o  Esquimau to teach the RCNVR  and asked me to come with him.  He said there's a war coming,  and you'll be a commissioned  officer in no time; but our family was not very militaristic so I  went to work in the mines In  October of 1936.  If the spirit of those "High  School Students" can penetrate  the minds of the governing  bodies of the world, then there  is hope for the future. Personally, I haven't been able to decide  God's gender���or whether God  is black, white, yellow, red or  maybe even a little pink���but I  do regularly thank God for  good health and happiness.  Marv Volen  It's not exactly lions lying down with lambs, folks, but it is a peaceful local scene near Ruby Lake,  and pleasant lo look at during these turbulent times. -Aaa Cook photo  Share some time with young  Editor:  Recently someone asked me  why I'm spending so much  energy on the Gibsons Teen  Centre, when my children are  still young and I've lived here  less than a year. My involvement stems from the memories  of Gibsons as an infrequent  visitor almost 17 years ago.  A picturesque selling, lots of  healthy energetic young people  with nowhere to go. Cars cruising around and around, and  trouble waiting to happen.  Young people anxious to get  away and see what ihey were  missing.  Combine lhal with the personal confusion of family  break-ups, their search for independence and direction, the  pressures of study, friends and  money... Teens haven't changed much and I don'l envy their .  youth.  I give my lime and skills to  secure a place for them. A place  to meet and relax. Not to escape  from all the con fusion... but to  reflect and share their thoughts  and energy. A place to feel  welcome.  After seeing ihe sad faces of  their evening vigil in protest of  ihe war, I feel even more determined. More determined to  shake up the complacency in  this community.  You needn't be a parent or a  person with special skills or  training. We don't ask for a  long term commitment. Just an  extra pair of hands for a project, someone lo make phone  calls, write a letter, or supervise  an evening al the drop-in centre.  We also need space lo store furniture thai has been donated.  Until we have our own facili  ty we plan to hold a once a  month activity in the Marine  Room, located under Gibsons  Library, on Saturday evenings.  ,i  Gibsons Outreach Society t|  also up against the usual red  tape, community and council  policy concerns. Perhaps all you  have to share is information or  the contacts that only you can'  provide. I won't use the word  'volunteer' because that's sure  to scare you away...but please;  share some time and energy fori  the young people here in our;  community. Please contact Jan.  at 8136-8918, Anne at 886-70381  or Louise at 886-3452.  Jan Bryant  Committee Chairman  Gibsons Teen Outreach Society]  Note: Please refer to the Coait  News Notice Board for the next  Outreach meeting.  Children's legacy destroyed  Editor:  : J War���when I was a child, liv-  I ing where 1 am now in Port  Mellon, I remember the World  War II. The black-outs; the  women's service clubs knitting  and sending goodies in packages  lo the troops; the men playing  soldier in the militia; the rations; the War Bonds and the  news reels before the main  feature at a movie.  Then there was the Korean  War. 1 was a teenager wilh a  boyfriend in the Navyj I could  cry a little when he left on his  Driftwood  Players  present  'Magnolias'  Continued from page 12  tually, I'm treated like more  than a cast member. I feel sort  of like a... a niece, you know? I  feel real comfortable around the  others. Karen���who plays  Truvy���invited me lo stay al  her place���so I wouldn't have  to drive back to Pender where I  live. Like, I really fell like Annelle when she invited me lo do  that! Truvy does basically Ihe  same thing for Annelle. It has  made getting into the character  easier for me."  The novice actress and interviewee ("This is my very first  tjme being interviewed!") was  relaxed enough to indulge in a  little free associating. "I've  always wanted to do this and  everyone who knows me knows  "this, so I've been gelling things  like 'Remember me when  you're at the lop' or 'I'll be  your butler or your maid' or  (giggles) 'When you're rich and  famous, invite me over' and I  feel real inspired when people  express their support thai way  but it scares me too���I don't  want to be a failure, right? 1 just  say 'I wish' to myself and let it  go at that.  "Oh, and I never get to talk  on the phone anymore.  Weekends aren't as free as they  used to be. My school marks  (inhales sharply, with conviction) are suffering a bit, but  nothing I can't handle, Mom!  Dad!"  Ms, Melanie "Annelle"  LeBlanc laughs uncontrollably  and makes windmill motions  with her hands before composing herself enough to add, "But  it's only for a short time���and  it's worth it, she added hastily!"  Didya hear that, Mom? Dad?  ship and-people would sympathize with me.  .  And Vietnam. 1 lived in the  city and knew draft dodgers and  participants, but it wasn't my  war.  Now, the Gulf Crisis. We are  part of it, like it or not. I will be  a Peace Activist throughout this  crisis. But there is one thing lhal  I urge each person who cares  about the end lo all wars lo do,  to write both the Canadian and  United Slates governmenls and  insist that the military does not  censor the media reporting the  horrors of this insanity. Because  I believe thai, seeing the  destruction of bodies, minds,  souls and countries, we as a  human race might come lo our  senses and work as a unified  world. Then maybe, this  devastation of humanity and  the earth might stop.  I ask the forgiveness of the j  children, for it is iheir legacy!  that my generation is destroy-  ing.

Hanne Ratzburg, the  teacher/counsellor responsible  for the project, told trustees at  the November 27 board meeting  that an increasing number of  students, particularly those with  M.E. (chronic fatigue syndrome), are unable to attend  regular classes, and were in  danger of falling behind their  classmates in school work, and  were also unable to take advantage of the counselling services  available in the schools.  "These students are even  more in need of counselling  than students in school," said  Ratzburg. "They often have  many fears connected to their  illness.  The new program takes a  wholistic approach that  recognizes the connection between physical, mental and  emotional health. "The mental  stress of an illness can often  make it seem worse than it is,"  said Ratzburg.  "The whole family, particularly in chronic illness, can be  involved with the student. We  have 10 students with long term  illnesses. Often they don't know  what symptoms to expect, and  with a relatively new disease like  M.E., there isn't a cure. They  are living in a lot of uncertainty,  pain, discomfort and  psychological problems caused  by the illness.  "These things create a stress  that often makes students angry  and aggressive, and many  young students don't have the  maturity to deal with these  things. Because so little is  known about M.E., students  often ask me 'will I die?'. This  is not so with M.E., but with  cancer, it is a very real fear."  Ratzburg said depression  caused by uncertainty is a problem faced by many young  students who are ill. This also  happens to pregnant teenagers  and young mothers who may  not know what the future holds  for them.  "We see these factors acted  out by reduced motivation, they  just don't feel like doing the  things they used to do. We see  the A student slip to a C or D  level. Often, before they are  diagnosed, they know something is wrong, and this shows  up as depression. Or they may  become withdrawn, or aggressive. The energy that used  to be spent in social or school  activities is now used in trying to  cope."  At this stage, parents or  teachers, who may be unaware  that the student is ill, often unwittingly add to the problem by  being critical of reduced performance.  "This creates a vicious circle  that must be broken for the sake  of the student's physical health  and mental well-being." Ratzburg stressed. "The role of the  counsellor is to intervene before  the situation develops into a  severe depression that can be  very difficult to overcome. The  suicide rate among adolescents  suffering from chronic illnesses  is very high."  Ratzburg and other school  counsellors and teachers visit  students in their homes and help  them, not only with their school  work, but with the often more  difficult psychological problems  caused by their illness. "All of  this contributes to the well-  being of the student. One of the  basic roles of a counsellor of  homebound students is to act as  a liaison between the school, the  peer group, the family and the  student.  "A vital part of this is the  family doctor, and we also work  with other agencies such as  Mental Health, Public Health  Nurses and Human Resources.  "We work to build the student's self-esteem, because that  is often the first thing to be affected. If a student who is used  to getting straight A's can no  longer do this, their identity  goes. It is not enough to tell an  honour roil student they should  be happy with a B average.  They feel they have lost part of  themselves, they often cut  themselves off from friends.  This is particularly true of the  students who are athletes."  Ratzburg and her team ol'  counsellors see their main function as helping these students reenter the mainstream of school  life as soon as they are able.  "We like to see the illness a a  temporary thing until they ure  well enough to go back to  school. Often, for high school  students, by the time they are  well, their class has gradual. J  without them, and they do not  want to go back to school so we  arrange for other alternatives.  "Getting back into social  contact with their friends is Important, We act as liaison with  their peer groups. We arrange  for their friends to visit, or set  that they get to social events at  the school. However little, that  contact is very important."  Sechelt skirmish  A staff memo issued by Sechelt Mayor Nancy MacLarty  sparked controversy in the Sechelt Council nxently, and  became the subject of a motion tendered by Alderman  Michael Shanks it ��� special January 25 council meeting.  MacLarty's memo had indicated that any future services  contracted out to a professional engineer by the municipality  were to be cleared through her office.  MacLarty said that an inspection of recent billing for these  services���from the end of November to mid-January���had  shown charges amounting to $65,000. Much of the money  had been used for "studies", some of which are still ongoing.  MacLarty indicated that she was unclear on the authorization process for these expenditures and wanted to see more  control over the situation.  The motion proffered by Shanks declared that "...it was  not the sole prerogative of the Mayor to contract such expenditures on behalf of Council." The motion would see requests  for engineering expenditures referred to appropriate committees, who���in turn���would make recommendations to council.  The motion was tabled when MacLarty said she would reword the memo to clarify her stance and Indicate the involvement of the entire council.

Coast News, January 28,1991  Against the war  Speaking it a Peace Rally in Sechelt, Mackenzie riding NDP  candidate Howard White was critical of what he called the  "selective morality" that is being applied to this war. "We are  seeing selective reasons for pursuing this particular tyrant and  not others," he said. "It is important that Canada import some  level of statesmanship to international affairs." ��� See story  ��� ���Rom Nicholson photo  Hot line  On January 25, a legislative attack was launched at  Sechelt's recently-installed mayoral "Hot Line."  The "Hot Line", a campaign promise made good and put  in place by Mayor Nancy MacLarty, is an answering machine  featuring a personalized message from the chief executive  herself, which runs round the clock to give Sechelt residents  constant access to the Municipal Hall.  Responsible for the unlikely assault on the innovative service was Alderman Michael Shanks who motioned at a  special council meeting that, because MacLarty had Installed  the "Hot Line" at the Municipal Office "with no authority  through resolution of council," a motion was needed to come  from council authorizing its installation.  An additional aspect of Shanks' motion would have made  MacLarty responsible for keeping a log of incoming calls and  reporting them to the council on a weekly basis.  MacLarty assured council that she did already keep a log,  and, though the "Hot Line" has been in place for only a couple of weeks, she has already received calls from concerned  citizens, all of which she has referred to the appropriate  departments.  A further "Hot Line" concern of Shanks' was its "...initial and ongoing cost to the local taxpayers." MacLarty said  the answering machine cost $129 and the only actual ongoing  expense is the monthly phone bill. "Not bad for the service  provided," she said.  After lengthy discussion the vote was taken with Alderman  Shanks losing the round by a six to one count,  A & T ENTERPRISES:  CONSTRUCTION SERVICES  ��� CUSTOM HOMFS       .ADDITIONS  ��� RENOVATIONS  Planning a Renovation?  886-3538  Wc Still Hake  ALLIED  Ihe Careful Movers  in a day when personal service seems like a chapter Irom history,  vou ii be pleased with Alliad's genuine concern.

They were all unhappy about  the war in the Gulf.  They were a cross section of  the community, ���politicians,  church ministers, teachers,  seniors, housewives, nurses,  union members, mothers, those  who had personal experience in  World War II, and, most apparent, ���a large group of  students of all ages.  They spoke of their feelings.  They sang songs of peace accompanied by native Indian  drums which, as Ghislaine Gen-  eau said, "were the sound of the  heart beat of Mother Earth."  They lit candles to signify the  spirit of peace.  Their ideas ranged all the way  from criticism of the political  actions of world leaders to poignant evocations at a very personal level of the anguish of  those who were experiencing the  war in their own lives.  The practiced public  speakers, the politicians and the  ministers, spoke eloquently of  world affairs and the immorality of war.  Provincial Liberal leader  Gordon Wilson declared that,  "We have to make sure our  message is clearly spelled  out...Canadians are not people  of war, we are people of  peace..."  "The United Nations must  not be used as a vehicle to promote aggressive acts...it must  remain a high order...that will  evolve into the new global  system of human kind interacting in a statesmanlike manner  so that we can recognize the  differences that exist  culturally...and bring about the  resolution of our differences  through peaceful means."  Local NDP candidate Howard White was critical of what  he called the "selective morality" that is being applied to this  war. "We are seeing selective  Dogs kill  goat near  Gibsons  by Joel Johnstone  An apparent wild dog attack  killed a goat owned by Wayne  Buchanan of North Road just  outside of Gibsons town limits  last Wednesday.  "Our dogs were in the house,  our neighbour's dog is on a  tether, and our neighbour says  he heard dogs barking, scrapping and making all kinds of  noise," Buchanan said after  returning from the veterinary  hospital. "We really don't  know if it was one dog or multi-  pie dogs. My girlfriend,,  Michelle, came home and heard  bleating. The goat was trying to  stand up and was chewed up  from her hindquarters to her  neck."  Efforts to save the family pet,  which Buchanan had hoped to  breed this year, proved fruitless  and early Thursday the  numerous wounds claimed the  animal,  Sergeant Ed Hill of the Gibsons RCMP says outside of a  wild dog attack on Keats Island  last year this is the first attack  he has heard of in recent years.  Buchanan says RCMP told  him that because of his location  beyond the town limits, he can  shoot any animal harassing his  livestock under the Livestock  Protection Act.  "We had this happen before,  but we caught the dog, I  couldn't get a good shot at it so  I didn't shoot it. I'm not going  to pull a trigger unless I can get  a good shot at it."  In that case, Buchanan claims  the dog was of the Pit Bull Terrier breed. This time round the  attack claimed a victim, and  Buchanan cautions anyone who  lets their dogs run free.  "People think if they've got a  couple of acres���'let's let the  dogs out'. They should keep  them on a good tether so things  don't happen. I don't want to  shoot someone's valuable pet,  but I will if I have to and if the  owners get upset then they can  come and talk to me about paying my expenses."  Buchanan traded an $800  horse for the goat.  reasons for pursuing this particular tyrant and not others. It  is important...that Canada impart some level of statesmanship to international affairs.  "This war is a terrible  mistake, and we can't stop saying that."  Reverend Stan Sears of the  United Church quoted Martin  Luther King who said, "there  are certain things in the social  system to which we must never  become adjusted. One is mob  rule, and another is the madness  of militarism and physical  violence."  But some of the most telling  statements came from those  who were not used to speaking  in public, and were nervous.  One woman, who as a child  had lived in Europe during  World War II, said simply, "I  know what war is like."  Denise Lagasse, who is herself a determined worker for  peace, paid tribute to Muriel  Sibbley, the Victoria mother of  five who felt so strongly about  peace that she joined a peace  camp on the Iraq-Saudi Arabia  border, "knowing she might  never see her children again...  "She challenges us all to use  our energies in creative, non  violent ways because ultimately  the greatest tool for change is  the belief in, and the love of  life."  A man who had grown up in  India reminded us that the  situation in the Middle East had  been going on for a lot longer  than most people realized, and  Westerners don't understand it.  Jennifer, an Elphinstone student, read a poem she had written on January 14, the day  before the war started.  "...don't let this generation's  blood be shed so quickly, not  without protest. Don't make it  easy, don't tune out on the  reality* of conflict...War is  wron|V no one wins...protest  the atrocities now before we see  a generation of bloodstained  eyes* and us with stains on our  conscience because we didn't  tryf  Her   Light,   who   almost  gle handedly has kept alive  ! back-to-the-land movement  of the sixties, suggested that the  Sunshine Coast could well see  another huge influx of those  who are not willing to fight for  "my country, right or wrong."  He would like to see the  Coast become "a sanctuary for  these war resistors who are trying to cross the border to escape  that insanity. It could be done  at the people level. We could  just decide, and it would be  so."  Alex Ryan, one of the  Elphinstone students who  camped out in the rain and cold  at an earlier peace vigil at  Pioneer Park in Gibsons, said,  "We know that the energy we  are generating will help others  who do not agree with the war  to express their opinions in a  peaceful manner. Together we  may be able to make a difference.  "There may be a time when  conflict and disagreements will  be solved peacefully if enough  people want it to happen. We  know we won't be able to stop  the war by ourselves, but we  might be able to help find peace  in the future. At least we are doing something to try and pull  society as a whole out of the  quicksands of war and up to the  mountains of peace."  Then with candles lit, a group  of hardy souls, accompanied by  the drums and singing songs of  peace, marched to the  cenotaph.  Do they know about this  small Sunshine Coast event in  Baghdad, in Tel Aviv, in  Washington, in Ottawa?  "People are doing this all  over the country," Roger  Lagasse reminded the guardians  of the flickering candles at the  cenotaph. "We have to keep  this up. We've got to let them  know we will not tolerate war."  Guess Where  The usual prize of $5 will be awarded to the lint correct entry  drawn which locates the above.
