Ik,  Spring has sprung  with the arrival of Ihis year's spring lambs.  ���Joel Johnstone pholo  "Nobody comes to planning meetings"  Public missing as  logging plans revealed  by Rose Nicholson  Logging companies are required���by law���to make  known to the public their 'Five  Year Plans'. Last week Interior  and Wcldwood invited the people of the Sunshine Coast to  view these plans in a day-long  display at the Driftwood Inn in  Sechelt, but by the end of the  day only about 40 people had  taken advantage of the invitation. In contrast, on February  13, well over 250 people attended a public meeting at the community hall in Roberts Creek to  discuss logging issues.  Understandably, Chris Ort-  ner of Interior and Dan Paul of  Weldwood, who were at the  Driftwood to answer questions  and explain their plans, were  somewhat frustrated,  "Everybody who was at the  Roberts Creek meeting should  be here today," said Ortner.  "Nobody comes to the planning  meetings, nobody uses their  chance to say what they want to  happen,and that's what this is  for."  Ortner explained that once  the logging companies get their  cutting permits from Forestry,  they then proceed lo make plans  for road building, the sequences  of the cutting plans which take  into account summer and winter  'shows', slash burning, and  finally,���reforestation.  At this point, when the plans  are complete, the public is asked  for their comments. "We're  here," said Ortner. "We want  to talk to people and find out  what their concerns are.  "What happens so often is,  they totally ignore the planning  process, then when all of a sudden something is imminent,  everyone is waving their hands  and saying, 'No, we don't want  this to happen.' This is really  frustrating for people who are  trying to make long term plans.  "We can change our plans (at  the beginning), but it's very difficult once we get the roads built  and have spent hundreds of  thousands of dollars getting  something ready to harvest and  somebody is up there, blocking  the road.  "Next year we hope to have  all the companies displaying  their plans at the same  time,���Canfor, Terminal Forest  Products, MacMillan Bloedel,  Fletcher Challenge, Pacific Forest Products and even the Small  Business Enterprises Program."  On the Inside  The unconscious rules Page 2  Letters to the editor Paget 3&23  Working parents' relief Page 4  The Whltworth Chronicles Page 11  Notice Board Page 11  Dixon sets  record straight  Former Sechelt Indian Band  Chief Stan Dixon contacted the  Coast News upon his return  from Ottawa where he testified  in the "kickback" trial of  erstwhile Indian Affairs  Minister John Munro.  What was bothering Dixon'  was the question of precisely  where the $10,000 donated by  the Band to Munro's failed 1984  Liberal leadership campaign actually came from.  "I explained it very carefully  in the courtroom where the  money came from," Dixon  said. "But that (fact) was conveniently left out once the story  appeared in print."  By not including the true  origin of the $10,000, Dixon  claimed, "the impression was  left that we were giving Munro  money from D1A (Department  of Indian Affairs) funding  ���when actually the $10,000  came strictly from Sechelt Indian Band revenues."  According to Dixon, had  money from DIA funding been  used for the purpose of contributing to a political campaign, the action would have  constituted a misappropriation  of funds.  "The Sechelt Indian Band  has never misappropriated  funds���certainly not while I was  Chief," Dixon said flatly.  EDC gets update  on Port Mellon  Hughes reports paper mill's progress  by Rose Nicholson  By May, the major part of  the construction al Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper (HSPP) will be  complete, wilh only the co-  generation project left to be  finished. So far, just over $1  billion has been spent in construction costs.  Last week, Bill Hughes summarized recent developments  for ihe members of the  Economic Development Commission. He said the mill had  recently achieved a peak production day of 1090 tonnes,  with several other days of over  1000 tonnes, compared to the  average of 650 tonnes per day  before Ihe expansion.  Work on the newsprint  machine is well advanced, and  very soon now they will be  generating all of their own  power. At ihe moment, the 25  megawatts generated is more  than needed, so 12 megawatts  are. being fed into the BC Hydro  grid system. "I get paid less  than one cent a kilowatt hour,  but have to pay three and a half  cents when I buy it back," said  Hughes. "I need a big hole in  Ihe ground where I put my  kilowatt hours 'til I'm ready to  use them."  The second turbogenerator is  under construction, throe old  recovery boilers are being torn  oul to make room lor the new  power boiler and a new press is  being installed to extract water  from hog fuel.  Hughes said thai the mill has  continued to operate all during  (he construction process. There  were 1650 men working al ihe  peak period but that number is  now down lo about 850, wilh  700 of those living in camp and  the rest living on their own. By  May, ihere will be another big  drop, with only the co-  generation project to complete.  A recent ad in local and Vancouver newspapers for spare  crew drew 1100 applicants. The  job called for a Grade 12 education and two years of industrial  experience. "We only needed 14  men," said Hughes. "We have  people working night and day  and on weekends to process the  applications.  "We've never been inundated  that way before. It must be an  indication of the stale of the  economy. About 400 of the applications were local but the rest  were from elsewhere."  Computers have streamlined  the operation, making it possible  to closely  monitor every  phase of production and  drastically cut down the time  spent on trouble shooting.  "We used to have one or two  computer people, we now have  eight," said Hughes."You have  to have your own expertise, you  can't rely on outsiders."  During the construction  period, Oji technicians provided  major help, and several HSPP  people went to Japan for training. "For the most part," said  Hughes, "the working relationship with the Japanese has been  good."  Hughes said that toxic wastes  emitted by the mill are now well  below government requirements  although the deadline for  reaching these standards is not  until 1994. "We are the only  mill in BC that has reached  these standards," he said. "The  system is working well."  Although facilities in the mill  are designed for two machines,  Hughes said there is no commitment at present to build a  second. "It depends on the  Japanese market for newsprint  and our ability to meet quality  demands. Howe Sound is tied  to the Japanese market, so is  nol affected by North American  market conditions."  Long knows nothing of commuter ferry  Coast mystery!  by Rose Nicholson  Radio and television reports  last week claimed that a contract had been let to a private  company to provide a  passenger-only ferry to the Sunshine Coast. But at a public  forum held at the Gibsons  Legion last Friday, MLA  Harold Long said that, as far as  he knew, the contract had not  yet been let.  The meeting had been  scheduled for two to four  o'clock in the afternoon to accommodate Highways Minister  Rita Johnston, but at the last  minute Johnston was not able  to attend.  Panel members were  Regional District Chairman  Peggy Connor, MLA Harold  Long, Steve New from B.C.  Transit and Liberal Leader Gordon Wilson.  Long told the audience that  the proposed commuter ferry  would bring many benefits to  the Sunshine Coast. He said  that Langdale would be the  logical place for the terminal.  He reported that although  Highways Minister Rita  Johnston was still negotiating  with private firms, B.C. Ferries  was not out of the running.  Steve New said that B.C.  Transit has plans for improved  terminals and better transit services at both ends of the run.  Gordon Wilson was critical  of the survey conducted by B.C.  Ferries. "There hasn't been  enough planning on the effects  this will have on the Sunshine  Coasl," he said.  "The ferries are an extension  of the highway and should not  be under private enterprise."  The meeting was well attended, but several members of the  audience, which appeared to be  made up largely of regular ferry  commuters, commented at the  inconvenient time, and suggested that the audience would  have been much larger if the  meeting had been held at a better time.  Rod Morrison, General  Manager of B.C. Ferries, had  also been invited to the meeting,  but in a letter to Regional  District Chairman Peggy Connor, Morrison declined,  "because there is no one in B.C.  Ferries who could make a productive  contribution   to  the  meeting...we will not be in the  "passenger-only" business and  we have no information on how  the private sector proposes to  operate it."  There was much opposition,  but very little support for the  idea of a passenger-only service.  Several speakers from the audience objected to the lack of  consultation  Regional District Director  Jim Gurney objected to the idea  the proposed service would be  on an experimental basis. 'It  will cause a lot of disruption if it  is taken away," he said. "People do things like buy homes  and make major changes to  their lifestyles. Why not first  find out what the community  needs?"  Several commuters, some  representing many others, objected to the plan to have a terminal in downtown Vancouver  because they work on the North  Shore.  Most people were adamant in  their refusal to pay the approximately $16 a day estimated cost  of travelling on a commuter  ferry and when asked if they  were willing to pay more than  $7 a day, not one person in the  audience raised a hand. "If I  have to pay $16," said one man,  "I might as well take my car  and have the use of it on the  other side."  Youth telle from  Goepel Rock  Late Saturday afternoon, while enjoying a hike with his  dad, a 12 year old boy slipped and fell from a point on Gospel  Rock roughly 25 feet to the rocks below. Accordant to a  paramedic, the lad suffered "at least a broken leg."  First on the scene were ambulance personnel, followed by  fire rescue teams and a complement of RCMP. Both approaches on Gower Point Road to Ihe scene were temporarily  dosed, but a number of spectators managed to get In dose  enough lo impede the operation and were summarily warned  away by officials.  After rescue rigging was lowered from the dlff face to  where the boy was being worked on by paramedics, he was  hauled back up the elope, and taken by ambulance to  hospital.  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945 2. Coast News, February 25,1991  comment:.  j:  Y  Hyak's legacy  Take a good, long look at the photograph on Page 24 of  a section of dead killer whale, which washed ashore near  the Wakefield Inn. It bears mute and poignant testimony  to a cruel and peculiar way in which we humans exploit  other species solely for our own amusement.  It seems certain that what you are viewing in this disturbing picture is a remnant of Hyak, the oldest captive orca,  who died last week at 25 at the Vancouver Public  Aquarium.  It is time to put an end to our heavily-rationalized, but  still indefensible practise, of turning wild animals into  sideshow geeks to be exhibited for the amusement of pop-  eyed, popcorn munching bipeds. Are the so-called "educational benefits" thereby derived sufficient to justify the  sacrifices foisted on the living, feeling objects of our  voyeurism?  We think not. There are groups in Canada and around  the world who have been struggling for years to have this  issue put on one of the front burners of human awareness  and concern. Perhaps the unseemly end of Hyak will help  accomplish this end.  And perhaps the tragic drowning of young Keltic Lee  Byrne by three orcas at Sealand was something of a warning from the wild.  Sweet mystery  Ah, sweet mystery of life! Last week the news reports  were hard-edged and definite. There was to be a passenger-  only ferry service from the Seabus Terminal in Vancouver  to Bowen Island and 'the southern edge of the Sunshine  Coast'. The CBC carried repeat reports giving the name of  the company which had been chosen to provide the service  and the name of the Chief Executive Officer, a Vancouver  Island dentist.  Nobody on the Sunshine Coast knew anything about it.  Neither governments nor commuters had been approached, consulted, or surveyed. But surely the answer must be  revealed at Brett McGillivray's forward-looking 2020  Ferry Forum scheduled for last Friday afternoon? No less  a person than our own government representative Harold  Long was expected and answers must be forthcoming.  But Harold knew nothing about any coming commuter  ferry. Apparently if the decision has been made the  members of the legislative assembly have not been part of  the process, which should make our own government  members locally feel a little less ill-used. But not much.  Could it be that the future of the Sunshine Coast is  already well out of our hands? Could it be that the  regional board, for example, generously self-increased  stipends and futuristic forums and all, is irrelevant to the  future of our area? Stay tuned. Eventually someone will  tell us something, even if it's only the times of the ferries.  -from our files ���  We Remember When  5 YEARS AGO  Federal Minister of Fisheries and Oceans Tom Siddon  fielded questions about aquaculture from a large crowd at  the Sechelt Seniors' Hall. Fishermen expressed serious  concerns about the new Industry, but Siddon insisted that  it would be possible for the aquaculture industry and the  commercial fishery to co-exist.  10 YEARS AQO  The Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department announced  the presentation of a 'Long Service Award' to Cliff  Mahlman for 25 years in the BC Fire Service.  An agreement has been signed defining the relationship between the Regional District and the School  Board In regard to the Pender Pool, which may result in  the disbanding of the Pender Harbour Aquatic Society.  15 YEARS AGO  A report by Adrian Stott, regional planner for the  SCRD, makes the recommendation that all subsidies be  removed from the government owned ferry service and  that the service operate as an economic enterprise in  the manner of a crown corporation.  The Sechelt and District School Board endorsed the  formation of an ad hoc committee to Initiate discussions concerning the implementation of native Indian  courses into the local school curriculum.  25 YEARS AGO  Circumstances surrounding a series of Incipient fires  started in rooms of Sechelt Elementary School has  school officials and the RCMP using fine tooth comb  methods to track down a youngster with pyromanlac  tendencies.  35 YEARS AGO  While driving towards Port Mellon, N.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  I Year IIS; 6 Months 120 Foreign 1 Year M  Office    Anne Thomsen  Dee Gram  The shadow demands due  Early on in 2001: A Space  Odyssey, two bands of apemen  contend for possession of al  muddy waterhole. They shriek,  threaten and rant, taunt and  flex. Pumping themselves up  for combat in much the same  fashion civilized men do today.  George Bush and Saddam  Hussein began squaring off the  moment Iraq chowed down on  Kuwait, and their behaviour  was instructive. For despite the  fact that their trappings of office smack of modernity, and in  spite of the fact that their combat is being fought by proxy  ���by flesh-and-blood surrogates���Bush and Saddam  might as well be squatting half-  naked and drooling across from  each other at Kubrick's dawn-  of-civilization oasis.  For five months, while their  vassals prepared for a war  neither leader publicly admitted  to wanting (although, apparent-  In A Nutshell  Iy, Bush and Margaret Thatcher  had decided on war before the  UN sanctions were even approved), Bush grunted out his  insulting and inflammatory promises to "kick ass" and equated  Saddam with Hitler, while the  thoroughly secular Hussein promised Jihad and destruction for  the American Satan. In essence,  both men took on the complexion of primal thugs eager for a  laste of the old ultra-violence.  Meantime, what were the rest  of us well-adjusted, peace-  loving folk around the globe doing?  We were choosing up sides.  Or, in innumerable cases, having our minds made up for us.  Some of us were busy checking  out the players and their equipment in the programs thoughtfully provided by the media  arms of mass advertising. While  the cross-continenta' (and cross-  cultural) champions brandished  missiles in a tradition so locker-  room-phallic as to be funny  were it not for the mega-death  pulsing in their warheads, the  rest of us were unconsciously involved in a ritual as old as  human time. As old as our individual and collective psyches.  We were all of us soaking  up���and storing���a full psychic  charge of vicariously-acquired  hostility and aggression, adding  it to our own personal repressed  complement of same. While  going about our daily lives, conducted in an atmosphere of  reason,   rationality,   and  restraint, we were, nonetheless,  unconsciously preparing for the  unreasonable and the irrational.  Our personal dark side���our  Shadow���was being stirred to  life. All it needed was the right  object to project itself onto, an  object with which one could  identify all of one's own most  subterranean demons, fears,  and capacities for aggression.  Saddam became the perfect  projection screen for 'us', Bush  for 'them'.  Carl Gustav Jung observed  that the existence of a dictator  allows us to point the finger  away from ourselves and at the  shadow. He���read Saddam���is  "...clearly on the other side of  the political frontier, while we  are on the side of good and enjoy the possession of the right  ideal." As do the Iraqis and the  rest of 'them'.  It is especially illuminative to  note that Saddam's Iraq has  always been secular in nature.  So his call for Jihad and his embracing and espousal of traditional Islamic values would be  rightly viewed as merely expedient hypocrisy, were it not for  the fact that Saddam is about  manipulating powerful, archetypal symbols for purposes of  tapping into dark reservoirs of  his people's collective unconscious which have very little  to do with reason and right-  thinking or feeling.  The very same cynical game is  being played by George Bush.  The United States is a society in  which matters of church and  state are strictly separated in  law���if not always in practice.  The God Bush has invoked constantly and with a most unsettling intimacy has been summoned to lend Bush nothing less  than the patina of the divine. If  Bush's crusade against Saddam  is so righteous, the message to  the unconscious of those who  believe is that one now has personal sanction to release and  project upon Saddam the hatred  and fury of one's own self-  loathing.  The Gulf war was in no way  inevitable. The Iraqis could  have overthrown Hussein and  withdrawn from Kuwait. The  American people could have  made it clear through their  elected representatives that only  impeachment could have  followed from Bush's reckless  disregard of his countrymen  and women's wishes.  What made the war probable  was the abysmal lack of real,  hard data we humans have of  ourselves. The lack of  understanding, appreciation,  and experience of that 80 per  cent of ourselves which is  always unconscious���but  always amenable to being accessed���is what keeps us as  primitive as the apemen in 2001.  And our science and  technology make us more  lethal. A planet of unconscious  apemen with little sense of internal realities. Bombing ourselves  back into the stone age.  Elusive Canadian style  by S. Nutter  Many Canadian survivors of  World War II have said that  they considered a plus of the  whole affair to have been that  they discovered for the first time  what it was to be a Canadian.  They saw and experienced the  fact that they were certainly not  Brits, and definitely not Yanks.  They were Canadians, and by  the end of the war they were  very glad of it.  It is a minor matter, of  course, under the present circumstances, but it is possible to  wonder how our boys are getting along in the desert with the  Yanks and Brits in this war. In  WW II, as I remember, and as I  have been told, and as has even  been written about, the rapport  was not exactly always what you  could call parfait.  This was not a matter of differing policies, or pressures exerted, or big guy/little guy  come-ons of any sort, it was  purely and simply a matter of  different styles. When you come  down lo it, a cultural thing.  Well, for example, can you  envisage a Canadian army commanded by a General Patton?  Or MacArthur for that matter.  Or a Canadian ship with a  pusser permanent force Royal  Navy Captain?  We found the British ram-rod  a rich source of humour; on the  other hand we abhorred the way  the Yanks just 'slouched  around'.  Even in our case, up in  remotest Gander in northern  Newfoundland, we were not immune to these cultural aspects  of the job. The station had been  built originally by Imperial Airways when they were trying to  start a trans-Atlantic service  before the war. It still had a station manager living in one of  the three houses, a Brit of good  family who had been exiled or  marooned there for having married a tightrope walker.  In our tenure, high ranking  Brits, on their way to conferences in Washington, would  stop off and get stuck by the  weather. They would perforce  have to use our mess, and on  several occasions made it clear  that things were not as tickety-  boo as they thought proper. I  don't think, though, that any of  these blasts, from however on  high, ever made any material  difference.  Then the Yanks came, and  they found us 'stuffy'. As the  Flying Fortresses began to flow  across the Atlantic they  established a base across the  runway. They built a comparatively palatial Officers'  Club, but i" no time, to our  eyes, it looked like a penny arcade. We used to go there  though and play cards and dice.  There was lots of money  floating around and the exchange was in our favour.  We had two Yanks with us on  our squadron. They had come  up to join our air force before  the States entered the war.  Neither of them clearly had had  much knowledge of Canada,  and simply thought that  somehow they were joining the  Brits. David, a Southerner from  New Orleans, even had a hanky  in his sleeve for a bit, but he got  over this.  Leonard Rubin, on the other  hand, from Hartford, had the  strong idea that Canada was a  part of America that simply  didn't have a senator. By the  time the Yanks came up to  Gander both these friends had  settled right in, and when we'd  go over to 'the other side' they  stayed clearly of our contingent  and even expounded on the  theme.  The differences today will be  slighter, if indeed there are  many at all. If 'culturally'  means things we watch on  television we have to be pretty  well the same. Why, there's  more difference between an  Arkansas farmer and a New  England advertising man than  there is between the average  Canadian (a shadowy figure if  ever) and the average American  (an equally dubious type).  But when you get a whole  bunch of one and a bunch of  the other, both pretty well  cross-sections, together in one  endeavour (1 think only in a  war) something of course will  begin to filter through.  * I,  _MBM_U_I <LetU.UL. txr the, Cditoi  Columnist claims her 'credentials' okay  Coast News, February 25,1991  Editor:  In reply to T.J. Jackson's inquiry as to my education in environmental matters, I would  like to make this statement.  I am no expert, ljowever, I  try to be educated and aware. I  get information from personal  testimony as appeared in Dixie  Percy's Egmont news column,  February 11, and as was  vocalized at the community  gathering, February 13, on logging concerns. At that and  many similar community  meetings I've listened to experts  speak and formed my own opinions.  I watch for environmental  shows on TV and enjoy David  Suzuki very much. I read  books. I've just finished a book  'Mountain in the Clouds' on the  many factors, many of them  perpetrated by the logging industry, which have decimated  the wild salmon runs in the  Olympic Rainforest of  Washington. I've joined environmental groups and studied  their literature. I've studied  mushrooms and understand  something of the symbiosis that  exists between trees, which  shelter the mushrooms from the  sun, and the fungus, which  decomposes organic matter  making nutrients available to  trees. I've seen on TV and read  in books how the plow has contributed to loss of soil nutrients  and soil erosion by breaking it  up, much as logging machinery  gouges the soil of the forest.  I've been to clearcuts and seen  the landslides, missed the birds  and other wildlife, and watched  the top soil float down the river  to muddy our drinking water.  Experts are specialists and  sometimes fail to see a broader  picture. The public deserves to  have input on the use of public  lands.  After reflection on the job  done for the last 200 years, I  think improvement is needed  and a new direction deserves a  Doctors having it both ways?  chance. Previously, I've  thought my views radical, but  seeing the recent response on  the Sunshine Coast to logging  concerns, I now view them as  mainstream.  Janice Leighton  Editor:  During the recent BC Medical  Association's (BCMA)negotia-  tions with the BC government  over their fees and pensions, the  majority of people in BC probably supported the doctors in  their reasonable demands for  changes; even to the extent of  supporting their tactic of refusing to renew prescriptions over  the phone or returning people's  phone calls. It became necessary  for patients to make appointments for which the doctor was  paid his or her regular fee  through medicare.  That was fair as a negotiating  tactic and most people seem to  have borne it with good grace.  The BCMA has now reached an  agreement with the BC government on the issues of fees and  pensions. However, in spite of  this, the doctors are continuing  their tactic of no telephone calls  for renewing prescriptions or  even taking a phone inquiry  about tests, according to my  pharmacist, a medical clinic  receptionist, and the news  media... This isn't fair.  The doctors' argument is that  they weren't paid for these calls  in the past, although they made  Understanding and Healing  the Original Pain of our Lives  Long before meeting your spouse or current love interest; long  belore you had or even thought about having children; the pain  began.

Thus, it became a practice of long standing. I would  suggest a better tactic for the  doctors would have been to  negotiate pay for these calls into  their contract���not impose it arbitrarily. Imposing it in this  manner seems to me to be a way  of getting yet another increase  for themselves outside the contract.  The extra visits by patients is  an inconvenience and hardship  for some, but in spite of this it  does up the doctors' income. It  also ups the cost of medicare.  The BCMA has forcefully  and rightfully made the case to  the provincial government of  the need for more funding in  order to insure the continuation  of quality health care in BC.  The above mentioned practice  appears to me to weaken this  case.

And mothers who  don't work, but sometimes need  a break from the twenty four  hour a day job of 'mom-hood'  also know that they can confidently leave iheir youngsters  for an hour or two in the care of  responsible and loving adults  and where they can enjoy the  company of other children.  The Halfmoon Bay Child  Care Centre sprang from Ihe  needs of a large group of young  parents in Ihe Halfmoon Bay  and Welcome Wood) area who  were   trying   to   juggle   the  demands of both child rearing  and job responsibilities. The  usual solutions of babysitting by  friends and relatives, or Tll-  look-after-your-kids-today-if-  you-look-after-mine-tomorrow'  agreements, did not always  work.  So a group of parents got  toge.her to try and find a better  alternative, and the Halfmoon  Bay Day Care Centre was conceived. The gestation period  was long, and like all births,  there was a lot of hard work involved.  The Centre has been in  operation now for about a year,  and the parents are justly proud  of their efforts. This reporter  paid a visit to the bright and  cheery portable building lhal is  in ihe grounds of the Halfmoon  Bay Elementary School. A  group of three to five year olds  /Stfc (SibBana flaclft (Elub  wishes to thank the following for their  support of their function of Feb. 16th.  Town of Gibsons  NOTICE  OF INTERRUPTION  OF WATER SERVICE  On Tuesday, February 26,1991, at 9:00 a.m. for approximately one hour, water service will be interrupted for the purpose of water main maintenance  on the following areas: Marine Drive, Jack's Lane, all  even numbered houses on Seaview Road, Omega  Block, Shell gas station. Government Wharf, and  Smitty's Marina.  F.A. Cotton  PUBLIC WORKS LEADHAND  were contentedly playing with  an intriguing variety of toys, ���  paints, trucks, dinosaurs, a sand  box, a kid-high sink, leggo,  ���just about anything that  would tickle the fancy of a  preschooler.  Watching carefully but unobtrusively were teachers Deborah  Meier and Claudia Doman.  "They entertain each other,"  said Deborah, chuckling at my  surprised comment about the  absence of bickering and whining. "But it's not always like  this," she hastened to add.  "They need a lot of one to one  nurturing at this age.  "But even though some days  it's wearing, the rewards are  very greal."  There are five teachers at the  school, all with Early  Childhood Education training.  Mennie Kleij, Helen Skill and  Dawn Dickeson share duties  with Deborah and Claudia to  cover the long 7:30 am to 6 pm  day.  Later, at her home across  from the school, Sue Lamb, one  of those responsible for starting  the school, described the  months of hard, dedicated  volunteer labour that it took to  bring the dream into reality.  First came the research,  ���how does one set up a day  care centre? Then, ���how do  you go about getting funding?  A government start-up grant  was available, and a grant from  the Vancouver Foundation  would also be forthcoming.  Fund raising dinners and events  at the Halfmoon Bay Summer  Fair helped a lot, but all this  would     not   provide  nearly  enough to build from scratch.  Weldwood of Canada was  willing to donate an unused  bunkhouse from their Clow-  holm camp, the use of a barge,  crane and truck were all  donated to move the building  and many willing volunteers  tackled the mammoth job.  The School Board authorized  the use of the school grounds  for a location, and then began  the months and months of work  to renovate the building. The  core group of Sue Lamb, Joan  Merrick, Maggie Milner, Jill  Short, Heather Skytte, Carol  Feenstra, Jane Woods, Roger  Douglas and many other  volunteers put in hundreds of  hours on the project.  The well used building is a  tribute to their efforts. Bright  walls are decorated with the  children's colourful artwork,  there is a toy kitchen in one corner with a stove and cupboards  made from cardboard boxes,  shelves and shelves of toys, a  diminutive sink and cupboards,  child-size tables and chairs and  a quiet room for naps and story  time.  Both Deborah and Sue talk  about the on-going problems of  funding. The government does  not provide any financial support for the running of day care  centres, so the parents are totally responsible. The fees of $20  for a full day or $11 for a half  day provide an income that  sometimes gets stretched rather  thin.  "It would be nice to have an  outdoor   playground,"   said  Deborah wistfully, "and maybe  Please turn to page 5  The Halfmoon Day-Care Centre provides loving care for children  from 18 months old to Grade 7.

Streamlining for SCRAPS  by J-to Ldtfcton, 8864541  During its three months of  operation the Gibsons Recycling Depot (operated by  SCRAPS and Super Valu) has  collected 35.5 tons of cardboard, IS tons of newspaper,  three tons of high grade paper,  14 tons of glass, three tons of  tin, and 800 pounds of  aluminium. Let's keep up participation. Here's a few suggestions on how we can help  streamline the operation.  Other than newspaper, paper  accepted includes quality stationery as 'ledger' paper and  paper with tractor fed edging as  'computer' paper. So for all  other paper, you can keep it to  start your fires or doodle on it.  Metal, plastic, and lead on  glass bottles needs to be removed. Glass must be cleaned with  labels removed, if possible. If  there's any difficulty doing this,  ask the attendant to help.  A new procedure is to  separate aluminium cans from  foil, pie plates, etc. Look for the  individual bins. Small bits of  cardboard can be put in a paper  bag for easier handling. The  depot has a cardboard compactor and is expecting a can compactor soon. Egg cartons and  wine bottles are collected for  redistribution to those who need  them.  The depot is open seven days  a week. Choose a convenient  time and day when they're  open. Don't leave recyclables  when the depot is closed.  Volunteers are needed for a  variety of tasks including depot  work, fundraising, and expanding the facility. If you're interested in helping, call Anne at  886-7988. People are anxious to  recycle. If the sorting procedures are confusing, pick up a  brochure at the depot. And  keep up the good work.

What  do you know about the environment problems that plague our  beautiful world? What can  YOU do to help? And how can  your library help you with  useful information?  Among the books we have on  hand, some may help you with  your consideration of the problems. We suggest reading  'Green Future' (363.7), it's ���  Matter of Survival' (304.2),  "The Dally Planet' (304.2), and  'Poisons In PubUc' (363).  Then there are the books  which tell you how to make  small, but positive, changes in  your own house and garden.  Read 'Clean and Green' and  throw away those toxic  cleaners. And for the gardeners  we recommend 'How to Get  Your Lawn and Garden Off  Drugs' (635) and "The Chemical  Free Lawn' (633).  The numbers in brackets  refer to the Dewey filing system.  We are all very happy to help  you find your way around our  non-fiction section or find a  good thriller if you need the  light relief. See you at the  library.

Coast News, February 25,1991  GEORGE IN GIBSONS  Tips on securing property  by George Cooper  When some homes got pretty  cold in our recent freezing and  snow, some neighbours with  wood stoves invited others, particularly the elderly, over to  share the comfort of a warm  house.  Good to hear. On the other  hand, there's the gentleman  who told me of a concern he  had at that time for an elderly  neighbour living by herself in an  electrically heated house. Fear  of appearing intrusive or condescending kept him from inquiring how she was faring.  Mayor Eric Small found himself In a wild and crazy crowd at the  Gibsons Yacht Club Calypso Dance held to raise funds for a new  clubhouse. ���J��l Johnstone photo  Well, most don't need a  seminar on how to be neighbourly, especially to seniors, but  with new housing creating an  abundance of new neighbourhoods a reminder or two should  not be out of order.  As well there are some of us  who fail to see that we are growing less independent with the  passing years.  The RCMP booklet Neighbourhood Watch deals at some  length with the securing of property from theft or malicious  defacement or damage.  Your RCMP office has copies of this booklet to give to the  public. Have you marked those  new appliances or furnishings?  Engraving pencils are available  at the RCMP.  In Remembering Roberts  Creek the late Hubert Evans'  poem Smoke Signals speaks of  the neighbourly concern in his  early days when a chimney remained smokeless late into the  morning.  "The old gentleman still  hasn't lighted his fire.  "Let's hope he hasn't had  another fall. You'd best go  over."  Now with chimneys become  "tight-lipped", have the occupants nothing to communicate, Evans wonders.  In another, but related means  of security an individual person  may obtain a medical alarm,  that is operative 24 hours a day,  to bring immediate help.  Carried in a pendant, a transistor at a press of a button  alerts the monitoring station  which then makes pre-arranged  calls for help. Help arrives  within a few minutes. Available  through Peninsula Alarms.  There is a way suggested to  cut the fairly high cost of one of  these alarms (the device itself  and the monthly fee), and that  is for a service organization to  underwrite some of the costs.  And for those with allergies  and other medical hazards your  pharmacy can provide a leaflet  on the medic-alert bracelets and  wallet cards.  ARTHRITIC SELF-HELP  Local people who have been  trained in arthritis self management are giving a series of six  sessions for those troubled with  the disease.  The evening sessions start  tonight in the Coast Garibaldi  Health building in Gibsons  from 7:00 to 8:00 pm. There is a  series of the same sessions in the  afternoons beginning February  28 from noon to 2:30 pm. For  information phone 886-7900.

All this is  to let you know that if you  phone me and don't get an  answer, don't give up.

MUSIC FESTIVAL  Today Mrs. Brunson, music  teacher at West Sechelt Elementary School, is taking her  students (and students from  Davis Bay School) to a District  Music Festival in Coquitlam.  They leave at 9 am and return at  9 pm. A long day, but for these  dedicated choir students I'm  sure it won't be long enough.  SCIENCE NIGHT  Also at West Sechelt School,  a family science night will be  held on March 7 under the  direction of Mrs. Parker. The  students are very excited about  this project. Some work will be  chosen to be presented at a  science fair to be held on March  IS in Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons. From this, the top experiments will go on to the B.C.  Regional Fair to be held in April  in West Vancouver. This is the  first year Vancouver has been  chosen to host the fair.  A silent auction will be held  HALFMOON BAY HAPPENINGS  during the Family Science Night  to raise funds to send the  students to the Regional Science  Fair in Vancouver.  ASSEMBLY STARS  Every Friday, at West Sechelt  School, there is a primary  assembly from 1 to 2 pm. This  is where a student or a group of  students gets the chance to get  up in front of everyone and  show or talk about something  special he or she has been working on the previous week. A recent rendering of "Four Hugs a  Day" by the little ones in  kindergarten was "priceless"  according to a parent who attended.  Social evening big success  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  A successful social evening  took place at Welcome Beach  Community Hall on February  16 when a group got together  for the Valentine Dinner and  Dance. Bill Vorley, president of  the association, was the genial  host for the evening and provider of the excellent music for  dancing.  Other events due to take  place at the hall are, first of all,  the special meeting on Thursday, March 7 at 7:30 pm. Then  on Saturday, March 16, there  will be a good old pub-sing-  along night. Watch out, too, for  another popular luncheon later  in March.  CUBS  Once again some Halfmoon  Bay Cubs have done very well in  the area's model car rally which  was held last Saturday at  Greenecourt. Winning first  place in the show car category  was Justin Tabish with  Christopher Watkins taking a  close second. Well done, boys!  A DISASTER  It must have been devastating  to the folks whose house is being built on Redrooffs Road to  find that the ground beneath  their brand new home had been  washed away by the heavy rain.  The matter appears to be under  control now, and the structure  moved to higher ground. Let's  hope that it works for them this  time.  PARK CHANGES  In case you have been  wondering what is happening at  Coopers Green Park right now,  this is the latest development. A  pad is being cleared on the other  side of the little creek, where the  old building used to be. The  caretaker's mobile will be  located there, thus leaving more  space in the actual park area.  There is also some clearing  work being done on the park at  Mintie Road, which, incidentally, is now known as the  Redrooffs Trail Park.  It's always good to see improvements being made to our  precious parks, and if you have  any thoughts or ideas as to what  you would like to see happen in  your particular park you should  get in touch with someone from  the Halfmoon Bay Recreation  Association, since this group is  concerned and interested in our  parks.

Why can't I  get it in Canada?"  The availability ol drugs in  Canada is governed by the Health  Protection Branch (HPBI, Department of National Health and  Welfare.  It takes years to get a  new drug onto the market,  whether in Canada or the  United States. Chemists may  rest thousands ol chemical substances in the hope ol discov  crtng one new drug.  There arc extensive laboratory  lesls. If Ihe results are promising,  preclinical testing follows It con  sists ol animal studies and safe  ty trials tin small groups of  volunteers  If good results are obtained the  manufacturer then applies to Ihe  government lor permission to  conduct a clinical Ihumanl tnal  The new drag will be given lo  more healthy volunteers who are  monitored closely (or adverse or  tone eltecls It ihe results ol ihese  safety tnals .ire at all unfavour  able, the drug musl be reformu  lated before further clinical trials  can proceed. These studies can  lake many years lo complete  One commonly prescribed antibiotic was studied and tested for  approximately 20years before it  was ready for human use  When all of this testing is  satisfactorily completed, the  manufacturer then asks the  Drugs Directorate for permission to distribute the  new drug to named, qualified  investigators who will test it in  persons having the disease slate  or condition lor which the drug is  designed. If those lest outcomes  are good, the manufaciurer files  wilh the government all information known about the drug and  study results This document is  called "a new drug submission"  It can be as short as several  pages or as long as several  hundred volumes. Members of  the Drugs Directorate review Ihe  submission thoroughly If all is in  order, the manufacturer is given  permission lo market the new  drug in Canada  Both the Canadian and  United States'governments  conduct their new drug approval programs independently of each other. Not  all drugs sold in Ihe United States  are available in Canada; for that  matter, the converse Is also true  Further, some non presenpuon  drugs in Canada are available  only by presenpuon in the Unit  ed Stales  An advtaory column written by  The Canadian Pharmaceutical  AatocUrJon.

The 1991 model is custbm-built for B.C. motorists  and packed with innovative features.  You wanted auto insurance that did not discriminate  in terms of age, sex, or marital status. So ICBC  introduced Canada's first Claim-Rated Scale, with  premiums based on the motorist's claim record.  We also applied territory rating to reflect claims  experience in different regions of BC. more  accurately.  You wanted the option of insurance coverage for  periods of less than a year. We thought that was a  good idea and introduced short-term insurance  for as little as six months. You asked us to take  action against BC.'s growing number of traffic  accidents. We have responded on many fronts. As  a partner in Drinking Driving Counter Attack. And  by funding community-based traffic safety  education and life-saving research.  The Dial-A-Claim reporting system, conveniently  located claim centres, some of the most reasonable  auto insurance rates in Canada - the list of ICBC  innovative standard features is a long one. And  there are more down the road.  In the 1990s and beyond, Autoplan will be keeping  pace with B.C. motorists al! the way.  DICBC  Together, we can drive  insurance costs down.

The bushes on  the side of the road are getting  their spring trim as the crew  works its way toward Egmont.  You definitely need to 'drive  friendly' so you can slow down  for the flagperson.  The Martin's certainly have  changed the landscape around  Baihgaies'. Did their new shed  ever go up fast. Did 1 say shed?  Why, it's almost as big as the  community hall I  If you are a senior living in  Area A and you haven't already  heard of the recently formed  group concerned about housing  in the area for seniors, contact  Flo Williams or Billy Griffith in  the Egmont area.  The Community Club activities are at a minimum these  days but I heard an eensy ween-  sy rumour of a possibility or a  dance on the horizon, so keep  your dancing shoes at the  ready...just in case.  Egmont must be a pretty  special place because not only  do the Canada geese return, two  other former residents have  returned. Welcome back to  Kenny Sharp and Joe Silvey.  Police tlpe  Since its Inception In 1985, the Sunshine Coast Crime Stoppers Association has been responsible for 33 arrests, according lo Sechell Alderman Michael Shanks.  The arrests stem tram 147 "dps" received by the RCMP  through the association; tips that have led to the recovery of  $24,000 worth of stolen property and the seizure of $44,000  worth of drugs.  A total of $2700 has been awarded to those providing the  dps.  by Jacalyn Vincent, H3-2S40  Here are the new officers of  the Ladies Auxiliary for Branch  112: President, Joyce Summers;  1st Vice-President, Gayle  Adams; 2nd Vice-President,  Nancy Smallwood; Secretary,  Doris Edwardson; Treasurer,  Lil Beharrell; Executives, Eileen  Alexander, Pauline Babcock  and Diane Dennis.

Keep an eye on  this column for more details on  their upcoming Easter Tea  event, which will be held on  March 30.  A WARM THANK YOU  The May Day Committee for  "91" would like to extend the  community's thanks to Dennis  and Diane Gamble and Sunny  Charboneau for their previous  work and dedication in the past  May Day events. I think that  everyone knows how much  work, planning and preparation  it all takes. Let's all make this a  successful community event for  1991.  The committee suggests that  businesses, groups and  organizations could start thinking about and planning their  float now for the Pender Harbour May Day Parade, so they  should not miss out on their opportunity to "advertise" and  perhaps win a prize!  The next meeting for the  committee is scheduled for  March 24,- at 2 pm, in the  Pender Harbour Community  Hall. Anyone who is interested  should reel free to attend.  SWAP MEET  The next swap meet at the  community hall will be on  March 2, at 10 am. Anyone  who would like a table may  phone the new president, Ruth  Kobus, at 883-9603.  HOSPITALIZED  Doreen Lee was in St. Mary's  for a spell. We're glad to note  she is resting at home now. Giv  ing her great support and lots of  TLC were her family, friends  and hospital staff.  CHEST FOR RAFFLE  A beautifully crafted chest  made by Ray Mair is now on  view at the clinic. A "must  see", the chest will be on display  at various times in the Sechelt  and Pender Harbour areas. The  raffle will be drawn at the  Pender Harbour clinic on April  2. Tickets are available from  any of the directors or at the  Oak Tree Market for one  dollar. For more information,  please contact Peter Grabenhof  at 883-9444.  AS THE TIDE CHANGES  If anyone is serious about  playing volleyball, you can enjoy the sport on Wednesday  evenings at the Pender Harbour  High School from 7 pm to 9  pm.  Congratulations to Mary  Cameron, who this past  weekend wed Bruce Lane from  Vancouver. The newlyweds will  enjoy a honeymoon in San  Diego at the end of this week.

Provincial Forestry policy slammed  by tan Michael Sherman  A consensus of the Forest  Advisory Committee holds that  the state of the forestry industry  on the Sunshine Coast can best  be described as "in a real  slump."  During a free-wheeling exchange of views at their regular  meeting last Wednesday evening, members decried the fact  that, among other things, the  industry is operating only six to  seven months a year (on the  average), and that "95 per cent  of the timber cut here (on the  Sunshine Coast) is still leaving  here as logs." The message is,  of course, that little of the  timber harvested locally is processed on the Coast, robbing the  area of much economic benefit.  One member raised the spectre of possible disruptive confrontations ("blockades and the  like") being instigated here on  the Coast by anti-industry activists, and questioned both the  rationality and familiarity with  the true logging picture of a  "public" which seems more  prone to lash out than to dispassionately inquire.  Attention shifted to the role  the Forest Service plays in the  state of the local - forest  industry's economic and  psychological well-being. There  was general agreement that in  such key areas as policy, forest  inventories, and hands-on  management practices there was  much room for improvement.  A more macrocosmic and  political perspective was cast on  the discussion by member Dave  Bakewell, RPF. "Government  (meaning in Victoria), seeing the  coming recessionary trends a  few years ago, decided that they  had to extract $650 million  worth of revenue from the  forest industry���through  outrageous stumpage appraisals  and fees."  As the committee exchanged  opinions and information on  the labyrinthine issue, an image  began to emerge of a feudal  fiefdom where the feudal  lord���the provincial government���arbitrarily determines,  demands, and extracts a tithe  from its forest industry serfs,  regardless of whether any particular tithing might detrimentally impact that industry, causing pain, loss and serious  dislocation.  "X-clollars has to come from  (a) forest sector and it doesn't  matter a damn how the provincial government gets it," complained Gurney. "It's a poor  way to run the government.  High stumpage is caused by this  One* upon a time...  Whitworth Chronicles  by Dick kenned  Tim Clement, Chairman of  the Forest Advisory Committee, after being elected for a  third consecutive term. (By acclamation, no less).  ���Jin Michael Sherman photo  The cold heart of winter  brings out tall tales of the good  old days, and the warmth of the  sons, daughters and even the  grandchildren of the pioneers.  The chronicles reveal that two  Hanbury daughters had married  two local loggers who had built  temporary twin houses side by  side back up in the bush of West  Sechelt and they decided to have  a party.  Says Madge, "I was invited  from Roberts Creek and my  escort was Harold Husdon. He  parked his car at our place on  Crow Road and we took off in  my car. It was the dead of  winter and along the way at  Wilson Creek we met George  and Bill Husdon also headed for  the party in their logging truck  which was minus a door on the  driver's side.  "Harold wasn't too enthusiastic when I suggested  George and Bill come along  with us but in the end the logging truck was left at Wilson  Creek and off we went again.

"About midnight, Tom Hanbury came in and shouted 'It's  snowing to beat the band out  there', so we piled into my car  heading for home as this was  the closest to a blizzard I've  seen. By the time we reached  Wharf Road the snow was up to  the running board.  "Cars in Ihe early days had  no windshield wipers, so there  stood Bill Husdon on the running board wiping off the snow  from the windshield,���a rather  cool job considering he had just  a suit on and no topcoat.  "We finally reached Wilson  Creek only to find the Husdon  logging truck frozen up, so onward we went again till my car  finally stalled on Rat Portage  Hill, as cars were wont to do.  " 'You and Harold stay here  and we will go get the horses  and pull your car up the hill'  said the brothers. The Husdon  acreage was just west of Flume  Road a short distance away.  "After a while I suggested to  Harold that we walk. Away we  went with me plodding ahead in  my rose chiffon dress, silk  stockings and slippers and a  three-quarter length coat. The  s"how was up to our knees,-but  shortly we met the brothers and  the horses while we continued to  the house where Mrs. Husdon  was up with a good fire going  and coffee ready.  "She insisted on me putting  on a black skirt she had brought  years ago from London. It had  yards of material and warmth  was there.  "My car finally arriveJ and  Harold and I look off for my  home on Crow Road. It was  now daylight. My mother was  up, fed us breakfast, gave us a  shot of brandy and put us to  bed.  "Some time later George  Husdon remarked, 'You are a  funny girl, most would have  been in hysterics on that trip but  you seemed to enjoy it'."  The chronicles reveal the  Husdon family pioneered the  area as early as 1910 wilh eminent credentials, one being the  first school teacher at  Elphinstone Bay School. The  next generation of Husdon  sisters is still in our midst. One  married a grandson of the  founder of Gibsons, one married a great grandson of the  founder, and still another is  married to a former mayor of  Gibsons, after whom the Rilz  Motel was named. She was also  a school male of mine, ���once  tfpon a time.

Dave Bakewell smiled over at  Gurney and said quietly, "No  stumpage (appraisal) can be  changed in this area without the  signature of the forestry  minister."  Saying that he felt that the  "SCRD should help point  Forestry in the right direction,"  on issues such as stumpage,  Murray Cantelon moved that  the committee advise the SCRD  to dispatch such a letter to the  ministry.  After being seconded (and  slightly amended) by Jim  Gurney, Cantelon's motion  passed unanimously.  Submissions to the NOTICE BOARD ira welcomed.

In line with an expanded 1991  budget of approximately  $52,000, the tourist organization had asked the town for  $6000, with similar requests being made to the other two  governments.  At the suggestion of Alderman Margaret Morrison, it was  decided that all requests for  grants-in-aid would be held until budget decisions were made  in May, and grants would then  be made on a priority basis, "on  their merits".  A misunderstanding involving Sunshine Coast Breakaway  was cleared up. April Mackenzie Moore appeared before  Council to protest media  reports on a previous council  meeting that she claimed  discredited the organization.  She was assured by Mayor Eric  Small that he was "very supportive of the group" and when he  spoke of a "checkered past", he  was not referring to the local  organization, but to a similar  group in the US. "It was not my  intent to cast any aspersions on  the local organization," he said.  "I am very supportive of the  work you are doing."  Mayor Small reported that  the results have been received of  the public utilities hearing on  the natural gas agreement. "It  contains several improvements," he said. "Unfortunately, it does not allow Gibsons or  m  Teechere eettle  Sunshine Coasl teachers ratified in agreement with School  District #46 list Thuridiy.  "We didn't gel everything we were looking for, but II Is i  definite Improvement over our list agreement," says SC  Teachers' Association president Join Robb.  Wage settlements remain within provincial guidelines, but  Robb says real ground was gained In areas such is class size,  input from the teachers towards Year 2000 implementation,  and conditions Involving funding, is well as improvements  regarding leave of absence policies and benefits pay.  Though a "good solid vote" for the agreement wis cast,  the vole wis not unanimous possibly because some teachers  are wary of whit Robb calls "a semi-finalized agreement."  Robb cautioned that provincial wage restraints, announced  but not legislated, "...could prove the effect of re-opening the  contract."  "The Board his assured us they will live up to this and can  pay. We consider this an agreement In good faith."  Wilson wents  election rule chenge  British Columbia Liberal Leider Gordon Wilson on  February 20 called for major reforms lo Ihe manner in which  political parties can be funded.  "I am proposing that the province provide base funding to  political parties on a per capita basis by registered membership. That this province make legal only personal contributions by individuals, and remove corporate and union contributions that are tax receiplable. And, that there be strict  spending limits on political parties during provincial elections, with the provision for full disclosure of contributors  over $50."  Wilson went on to suggest that his party would implement  an "election day act" that would fix a day for a provincial  election.  "Such a day should be set in the spring of the year at the  end of the fourth year of government, this provision would  not preclude an election brought about by the loss of confidence motion on money matters."

"It eliminated one of my major concerns which was that the  agreement would be imposed, if  not negotiated in another manner within six months. That  clause has been withdrawn, and  if we choose not to execute the  proposed agreement, we can go  back to negotiations with the  gas company and if we can't  come to an agreement within six  months, then we call in the  Utilities Commission to help us  negotiate.  "Possibly the most disturbing  thing is that the date for gas  coming to Gibsons is September  '92."  In a response to a request  from the Merchants' Association of Lower Gibsons, Council  approved a plan to have summer weekend craft fairs in an  area adjoining the parking lot at  Holland Park.  Merchants of both Upper  and Lower Gibsons have plans  to co-operate on the sponsorship of this year's 'Pitch-In'  program.

International Business Minister  El wood Veitch, chairman of the  BC Film Commission, announced that a new $70,000  film study will recommend ways  to increase post-production  work in the province.

A total of 50 movies and  television productions were based in BC in 1990, an increase of  37 over 1989.  Jono, 13, joined over a hundred other Grade 7 students from the Sunshine Coast at a Conflict  Resolution Forum held at the Sechelt Indian Band Hall, February 13. -JoelMssmmskate  Schools study techniques  of conflict resolution  by Joel Johnstone  Barry Krangle was sitting  quite innocently on the bus with  his friend Alicia when Paul  Temrick approached him and  told him to move.  Krangle said "No. I was sitting here first."  Temrick replied "Move. You  told me yesterday I could sit  beside Alicia!"  Krangle defensively crossed  his arms and said again "No! I  want to sit beside her! She's my  friend, too!"  Temrick, upset said "Then I  won't be .your friend  anymore!"  What was taking place was a  typical example of an everyday  conflict children could relate to.  Whether or not Temrick would  classify Krangle as a com  petetive hothead, a quickfixit  compromiser, or a problem-  solver in confict situations  wasn't as important as  demonstrating to over 100  students that everyday power  struggles can be overcome  Temrick, a keynote speaker  and workshop advisor known  for her work at the Justice institute of BC, went on to  demonstrate with Krangle, a  Roberts Creek Elementary  School teacher, how to identify  problems and compromise by  working it out, staying calm,  helping the other persons save  face in a difficult situation.  "Embarrassment doesn't  make anyone feel like  cooperating," she said, stressing  the point of conflict resolution  is that both people get  something out of the situation  to their satisfaction.  Krangle, for instance, gave  up his seat after getting an adequate explanation of why  Temrick wanted to sit with  Alicia and, when the 'business'  was done, he would get to sit  and talk with his friend afterwards. Everyone goes away  happy.  But the summation of this  situation only reflects one  aspect of the forum held last  Wednesday at the Sechell In  dian Government District Hall.  Teacher and trustee Lynn  Chapman, participating with  her students, says the District  Global Education Conflict  Resolution Model is a valuable  tool for students today because  "How many adults grew up  learning these strategies?"  Temrick's aim was to get kids  thinking about their instinctive  impulses and learn to reason  with themselves which, in turn,  would leach them to reason  with others. Being in touch with  and identifying your feelings  when anger enters into the picture, or when impulses prompt  one to an action best handled in  a different manner, is a difficult  process and of itself.  Because, as Temrick says to the  students, "It's up to you to  decide and make a choice as to  how you are going to play this  game."

May 13  May IS  (604) 866-9265 or 886-3414  ITD SUNCOAST  llr AGENCIES  eauee ��ewr warn ntaftuowtt  by Peter Trower  Leaving Kelowna early the  following morning, we probe  deeper into the BC back country. Everything from this point  on is totally new to me. The  weather continues mild and  overcast. We roll through miles  of undulating pastureland dotted with ruminating cattle and  reach the outskirts of Vernon.  Here we encounter mechanical  trouble as the water-pump  packs up. We limp into town  and locate the nearest garage.  While the pump is being replaced we browse around Vernon  and check out a few stores. I  think of poet Pat Une. These  were his stamping grounds for  many years and much of his  early poetry deals with the area.  Soon we are on our way once  more. As we climb into the  Monashees, the country begins  to change again. The rangeland  starts to peter out and there are  many more trees. We pass  through a number of miniscule  towns including a place with the  curious name of Grindrod. It  consists of a general store, a  curio shop, a feed business and  a scattering of small farms,  strung along the banks of a slow  moving river like a pint-sized  Mississippi. I half expect a pint-  sized* steamboat to come  hooting around the bend.  Something about the oddly-  named place fascinates me.  Yvonne and I conjecture a bit  about what sort of people might  live there.  The highway begins to swing  east. We pass through the  fringes of Rcvelstoke and begin  to climb again into the Selkirk  range. At legendary and  disaster-haunted Rogers Pass,  we stop to look around. A  plaque tells of the massive  avalanche that wiped out the  original station here. The train  tracks had to be rerouted and  are now protected by a series of  snow tunnels to forestall  - another catastrophe.  Leaving the Selkirks, we start  up a long, flat, thickly-treed  valley. At the head of the valley  lies the town of Golden, a raw-  looking place with little obvious  appeal. It sprawls glumly below  us as we head up out of the huge  trench. At last we arc entering  the Rockies.  High in a mountain pass, we  strike the dour community of  Field, an old railroad town. We  drive into the place, hoping to  grab a cup of coffee. But  though we search high and low  along the drab streets, we can  find no hotels, cafes or even  stores. Field seems devoid of  even the simplest amenities. It  has all the warmth and vitality  of a mausoleum. We give the  colourless town a goose egg for  hospitality and make rapid  tracks out of there.  Our next stop is Lake Louise,  just across the Alberta  border���and definitely a more  attractive place. We park the  car and wander about the  historic resort.  Ato breeze on Lake Louise  only ice locking it silent  between those overexposed  mountains.  So much of this place  has been borne away on film  it seems obscurely diminished.  Group lours tumble from  buses  by that incongruous hotel  multi-roomed pretentious  looming over us  like some misplaced palace  the last gasp of Empire.  Ghost-strains of that  simpleminded song  guylombardo through the  drizzle.  Grizzled last romantics  stroll hand in hand through  honeymoon memories  You and I, my sweet, stroll  with them  needing no breeze to fan our  new love.  Briefly we consider spending  the night here���but a quick  price check disabuses us of this  notion. Picturesque as Lake  Louise may be, it is no haven  for the budget-conscious. We  chuck the idea and head north  to Banff.  To be continued..

The last  thing on anyone's mind was cooking dinner. The only logical solution? Take-out from  Ernie and Gwen's of course!  The cheerful, friendly clerk took my order with prompt efficiency. It was not an easy  decision, choosing from Emie and Gwen's wide menu selection. I was templed by the  Deluxe Jumbo Burger (two meat patties wilh bacon, cheese, mushrooms, lettuce and  tomato, $3.70) and the many seafood offerings, including the Seafood Dinner (fish fillet,  scallops and prawns served with fries and salad, $7.25) but in the end, I could nol resist  the large Ernie and Gwen Special Pizza.  As I ordered the pizza, I thought of the decorating we would be doing the nexi day; I  decided to order extra food for lunch. An Ernie and Gwen Special Submarine, chicken  nuggets and onion rings were added to my order.  In a short period of time we were home, tucking into our feast. The pizza had more  generous toppings than I have ever seen; layers of ham, pepperoni, onions, green peppers, mushrooms and cheese piled al leasl an inch tall on a perfectly baked light golden  crust. The IS inch pizza conquered our ravenous appetites after a couple of slices each  and there was plenty left over for those munchie attacks.  The submarine sandwich, for lunch Ihe following day, had equally as generous toppings as the pizza. The combination of ham, pepperoni, salami, lettuce, tomatoes, onions,  Cheddar and swiss cheese on a foot long soil white bun was delicious. The chicken nuggets were quite simply the best I have ever tasted. Made from all white meat, they were  served with a delicate honey mustard sauce, Ihe perfect complement. And finally, the  onion rings: a generous portion, golden brown, and cooked to a perfect crunch. Mmm...  delicious.  Thanks to Ernie and Gwen's, we managed to survive our renovating.

During the early ends, a skip  should analyze the style of play  of the opponent, their abilities,  deliveries, turns and misses. The  skip should also give his players  a chance to play a draw shot to  get the feel of draw weight. He  should try both sides of the  sheet to see if the ice is moving  the same amount both sides.  At this stage of the game, the  players will be cold, so don't try  delicate freezes, raises or come  arounds. This is the time to  build player confidence and  hard shots like this too early in  the game are too easy to miss.  This is also the time to play the  outer   rings  of  the   house,  spreading the rocks around,  especially if you have last rock.  Don't use corner guards at this  point in the game unless you  And yourself behind.  If you don't have last rock,  hit anything the opposition puts  in the house. Play draw to the  middle portion of the house to  avoid the opponent establishing  a corner game. Good hitting  teams would clear all corner  stones, even their own at this  stage of the game. In general,  the style of play during this  stage of the game is to use rum  weight and a wide open style of  play.  In the middle ends, the style  of play would depend more  upon the circumstances that  have developed in the early  ends. If you are down four or  more, it will be necessary to  take a few chances to get the  points back. Don't panic  however, it only takes a pair of  two enders to be back in the  game. Unless you are in competition play, this is usually a  fairly easy thing to do. You can  start playing the comers, the  corner guards and putting a lot  of rocks into play. That is where  the risk comes in, because the  opposition may get a rock dug  in behind the 'garbage', as it is  called, and further increase the  lead.  If the score is close, take few  chances, play for the two when  you have last stone. Use comer  guards when you have last rock  and use opposition stones to  freeze to if the opportunity  arises.  The skip should also try to  manipulate the game to end up  with the hammer coming home  in the last end. This may mean  blanking an early end in order  to gain last rock advantage.

The mandate of the Commission  is to prevent or reduce the impact  of plant closures and layoffs in  businesses that are the mainstays  of communities, especially in  the Interior and the North.  Its philosophy is to provide  short-term assistance for  businesses which, in the long  term, can stand on their own.  Its purpose is to keep paycheques  coming in for British Columbians.  HOW IT WORKS  The Commission, led by  Commissioner Doug  Kerley, will operate at  arm's length from the  government to seek the  voluntary co-operation  of affected parties,  which may include  shareholders, managers,  union and non-union  employees, suppliers,  customers, creditors, utilities and governments.  The Commission may  offer eligible businesses three  kinds of assistance:  1. Counselling:  The Commission will assist with the cost  of professional advisors to identify possible courses of action that would enable  the business to survive.  2. Mediation:  The Commissioner may become directly  involved in mediating a plan to prevent  the closure of a plant or to reduce the  impact of such a closure on a community.  3. Economic Plan:  This form of assistance applies only to  'strategic industries' -  those businesses whose  operations are deemed  significant to local or  regional economies.  In negotiating an Economic  Plan, the Commissioner  may authorize various  voluntary concessions from  governments or utilities.  The B.C. Job Protection  Commission is appointed  for a two-year period.  It will see British Columbia  through the current  challenge of tough  economic times.  For further information, write:  B.C.

Cubs,���and iheir fathers���from all over the Sunshine Coast  gathered al Greenecourt In Sechelt to participate In the Kub Kar  Rally. -Rote Nicholson photo  Cub rally racers  by Janice Lelghton, M6-3541  The annual Sunshine Coast  Kub Kar Rally got off to a roaring start last Saturday at  Greenecourt in Sechelt. Cubs  lined up the length of the room  waiting to have their cars  weighed in. The traditional  green and yellow hats with the  wolf cub emblem bobbed up  and down everywhere as the  boys moved from the weigh-in  lines to the refreshment line.  The usual popular hot dogs,  donuts and juice were served.  Each Kub Kar started from a  block of wood that was personally designed, carved, and  decorated by the cub and his  family. The creativity and style  poured into these cars boggles  the imagination. If one wants to  stress style with no emphasis on  speed, the car is entered into the  designer class. Ninety-nine per  cent of the cars enter the race,  however.  Finally after all the lining up  and waiting the first cars shot  down the race track. Cars are  raced in separate lanes three at a  time and put in boxes marked  first, second, and third. A car  has to come in third three times  before being eliminated. The  cubs set up a great din cheering  for their troop's entries and  followed each race with amazing intensity. After four hours  of this incredible participation,  only 12 cars remained to compete for the 12 trophies. Roberts  Creek brought home three  trophies. Blair Patterson's car  placed 8th; Skye Chilton's car  placed 9th; and Eli Dill's car  placed 10th (a special treat for  Eli on his tenth birthday). Congratulations.

Mother nature  has graciously allowed us to  begin the second half of play.  Having been able only to  practise and practise some  more, the boys in blue were getting anxious for some real head-  banging, physical contact and  just plain running around fun.  Hey, hey, hey, we're back at  itl  Over sea, over land, off we  went to the far lands of  Chilliwack, this was a major  road trip; to the head of Cultus  Lake we ventured for our second encounter with the  Chilliwack RFC. They came  here November 24 for the first  of the club exchange day. They  won the first.  On to the present. February  16 marked this fine occasion.  One o'clock kick-off.  Where was Wayne? Oh, oh,  someone missing already! Pigs,  we'll do it with 14.  Up and away, the start of the  game. A wee bit scrappy was  the beginning, everyone missing  a beat or two, darn lay-off.  Down to business soon enough.  Some odd calls by the ref lead to  a penalty close in for  Chilliwack; they ran it in for a  try, missed convert. Chilliwack  4, Pigs 0.  Back and forth, some nice  running by the outside backs  and strong tackling by Albert.  Unfortunately with their scrum  size the opposition pounded  away at the Pigs. There was  soon another try. No convert.  Chilliwack 8, Pigs 0. Half-time  whistle blew, score remains the  same.  Not a bad half of play for a  two and a half month lay-off.  Lots of evidence though of poor  conditioning���must work  harder at that and more basic  skills. Coach was happy.  Our kick-off to start second  half. Play developing well after  the short rest. The pigs persuing  the ball with more desire.  Pressuring hard, winning loose  ball and enjoying some forward  momentum. Continuing the second and third phase, the ball  eventually ending up in international Dave Mahony's hands  and over for the try, (wow what  stories there'll be in Ireland) no  convert. Chilliwack 8, Pigs 4.  A couple of penalty kicks  later and the score was  Chilliwack 14, Pigs 4.  Not letting up was the direction of the Pigs, still running  well, Mike Unger broke through  a few times unfortunately  without support. Finally getting  support and continuing the  momentum, Erick Larnder fed  the ball to the huge fill-in prop  Youthful artists  Emily Carr College of Art  and Design Outreach Program  (ECCAD) has invited Sunshine  Coast area youth to submit artwork to the seventh biennial BC  Young Artists Touring Exhibition (BCYA '91).

For example a person who  stipulates "no children" as a  condition ol rental would be in  violation ot the Family Status and  the Human Rights Acts. The  landlord who places the advertisement and Ihe newspaper  which publishes it would both be  in contravention ol the legislation  and could have a complaint tiled  against them. The Cent News  will therefore not accept such  discriminatory ads. TFN  Roberts Creek Hall avail.,  dances, parties, weddings,  equipment rental. Yvonne  885-4610.

Reid Arnold of Clean Sweep  CWmney Service in Wilson  Creek said that improperly installed wood stoves are one of  today's leading causes of house  fires.  "To save money on your fuel  bills and still have warm feet in  the winter, you can't beat a  wood stove. But you don't want  the thing to burn your house  down," Arnold commcned.  Child Care  Arnold recommends that all  installations be inspected by a  qualified person for safety.  "And have a certified  chimney sweep come over and  inspect your chimney before  you put in that stove," he added. "It's a good idea to make  sure the chimney is safe before  installing a wood stove.  "All wood stove and  fireplace chimneys should be  professionally inspected twice a  year for danger signs. Wood  stove flues need sweeping more  often than regular Fireplaces  because of the dense smoke they  produce," said Arnold.

Editor:  The front page article about  Gordon Wilson's latest scandal  in last week's Coast News made  me mad.  Let's look at the facts as  reported in the Vancouver Sun.  A special Liberal party financial  review committee said, "Spending by the leader is the primary  cause of the current financial  crisis in the party." It fingered  Wilson for a $170,000 advertising spree last spring and $16,400  in unapproved personal expenses. Apparently Wilson  heard little voices telling him the  Zalm would call an election last  spring and he was just peeing  his pants to beat the other parties out of the gate by running  all these ads showing himself in  various statesman-like poses.  He wrote to his media expert,  Martha King, saying, "The BC  Liberal Party will undertake the  responsibility to raise and  transfer to your account  $140,000." But the party executive couldn't hear any voices  and refused to approve the expenditure, so Wilson gave them  a "personal undertaking." All  through March and April of  1990 he kept assuring them not  to worrv because he was "per  sonally responsible for the  debts," and, "the debts are  covered," claiming he had  found a wealthy angel. But  when the bills came in the angel  turned out to be a figment of his  imagination and Wilson dumped the bills into the executive's  lap. The party couldn't pay and  the media expert threatened to  sue. She wrote Wilson, "Don't  ask us to be patient and  trusting. Your conduct to date  warrants neither."  This is serious stuff. Breach  of trust and gaining access to  money under false pretences  goes beyond internal party skirmishing and borders on fraud.  At the very least it points to  basic dishonesty and raises the  question of whether someone  like this is suited to a position of  trust at any level of government. No wonder Liberal party  executives felt they wanted to  distance themselves from Wilson. As the president of the  West Vancouver-Garibaldi Liberal riding association said,  "Can you imagine fighting an  election and by fluke this guy  gets elected or is ever in charge  of the finances of the province?  Wilson makes Vander Zalm  look like a real hero."  The way I see it, Wilson owes  us a serious explanation that  either clears away the black  cloud over him, or else he  should get out of politics. This  brings us to last week's Coast  News. He said the whole affair  is "pure politics" and "dirty  tactics" by the Socreds and  NDP because they're afraid his  Liberals will win "eight to 10  seats" in the next election. "If  we're being attacked we must be  doing something right."  Those of us who know  Wilson from local politics  recognize this as his pat answer  any time any kind of a question  comes up about anything he  does, but il never was good  enough and it's less good now.  It is plain for everybody to see  Wilson is being attacked from  inside his own party, not from  outside of it. He wants us to  believe critics are all Socred and  NDP agents disguised as  Liberals, but this doesn't hold  water. Bev Hendrickson, the  dame from South Vancouver  who said it would be better to  go into the next election without  a leader than with Wilson has  been a Liberal party member  for 30 years, which is a lot  longer than Wilson. Joel  Parkes, the guy who is supposed  to have touched off the whole  uproar says he's going after  Wilson because "it's time for  Liberals to think about forming  government, not just raising the  popular vote a notch." This is  not somebody who wants to  hold the party back.  Knowing Wilson as I do from  the Farrington Cove affair and  other local controversies, none  of the trouble he's in surprises  me, and his usual weasling explanation only confirms his  worst critics in my mind. What  does surprise me is seeing the  Coast News teaming up with  him to give local readers the  mushroom treatment���you  know, keep us in the dark and  feed us horse manure. As loyal  hometown readers we deserve  better from all three papers.  This is a story with big local  connections and balanced  reporting requires you to shine  light on the glaring contradictions in Wilson's statements.

The park, brainchild of  retired forester Paul H. Jones,  would lie along the broad  upland ridge of the Sechelt  Peninsula proper. It would encompass approximately 27  square miles and include three  "medium" sized lakes and  several smaller lakes.  Jones' idea stems from his  concern for the ecosystems of  the area. He says, "The natural  history of the area has been  severely degraded by recent logging..." He claims that, "Logging has often transgressed  areas plainly marked ecologically sensitive in Ministry of  Forests' forest cover maps,"  adding that old growth timber  now covers only about six per  cenl of the proposed park.  Aside from the loss of the remaining old growth, Jones is  concerned about the on-going  reduction of all habitat and  many indigenous wildlife  species through development  and logging of second growth.  "It may already be too late to  save the habitat of the marbled  murret and possibly the endangered spotted owl as well,"  he said. He went on to state  that,  because of the insular  nature of the peninsula (it can  almost be considered an island  because ihe presence of Sechelt  restricts animal movements onto or off of the peninsula), there  is likely to be "little change in  the animal fauna." This means  that, as deer, cougar, bears,  etc., have their numbers reduced through habitat loss, these  populations probably won't be  augmented through outside  sources.  Jones' proposal will be taken  into consideration by the Parks  Ministry (along with other suggestions arising from a  province-wide canvass of park  proposals) and Jones hopes to  elicit a favourable response  sometime this spring.  SCRD Planning Committee  SCRD's sludge plan  by Stuart Burnside  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) came oul in  favour of a "productive alternative" to the present storage  and disposal of sewer "sludge"  for the Sunshine Coast.  At a February 21 Planning  Committee meeting, Director  Jim Gurney raised the possibility that Sechelt Construction Aggregates, (a company long interested in using sewage sludge  as a fertilizer in areas that have  been logged or have had their  vegetation otherwise stripped  away) might be interested in  such a project.  At present, the sludge is  treated and stored in Sechelt  then transported lo the regional  landfill where it is buried.  Also discussed at the meeting  was Ihe news that the SCRD's  application to B.C. Hydro for a  grant to build a public utilities  generator had been approved.

The generator itself  would cost in the area of  $60,000.  The money would come in  the form of an interest free  "forgivable" loan. The loan  would be exactly the same as a  grant, but the terms, according  to a letter from Hydro, would  ensure that the project would be  in operation for at least three  years.  A Hydro spokesman told the  ComI News that current Hydro  policy is to help provide energy-  producing facilities for local  government whenever possible.  "It's the way we are trying to  meet future energy needs. In Ihe  past we'd look at projected  energy requirements for a given  region and try to meet them all,  if we could, with one large  power generator...Now we look  al the 'softer' methods...  cooperation with local governments to satisfy local needs."
