Joel Johnstone photo  No money for LRUP  by Stuart Burnside  A delegation from Ihe  Tetrahedron LRUP (Land  Resource Use Planning  Committee) will be heading to  Victoria this week after finding  out the Ministry of FOTests  (MOP) has not allocated any  money for the studies and  expenses necessary for the  committee's operation.  Word that (here would be no  money for the LRUP came  from Forestry representative  Barry Miller at last Wednesday's  LRUP meeting.  One of the delegates going to  Victoria, Harry Almond, lold the  Coast News the delegation was  comprised of all factions of Ihe  LRUP committee, including  Forestry workers, Tetrahedron  Alliance  members,   and  an  SCRD representative (Almond).  They will be attempting to  talk to Minister of Forests  Claude Richmond about making  money available for studies on  how wildlife is affected in areas  set aside for logging, watershed  studies, etc. The committee also  requires money for expenses  such as postage, office supplies  and so on.  "It's ridiculous that there is  no money for the LRUP," said  Almond, "there are about twenty  people putting an awful lot of  their own time into this every  month."  SCRD Director Jeremy Frith  felt the same way. He said the  LRUP, as it stands, won't even  get phone call money. "Tl)e  Committee   is   looking   to  Victoria for something realistic,"  he said, "otherwise this whole  thing is a farce."  The Tetrahedron LRUP  committee, made up of environmentalists, loggers, and  Forestry personnel, is maitdm_d  by the MOF to identify the most  appropriate uses of forested land  on the Tetrahedron Plateau, be it  logging or creating a wilderness  area.  Frith said one of the main  reasons th��i MOF hasn't allocated  money for the LRUP, aside from  claiming to have none to give,  stems from the approach the  government has taken when  providing the committee with  information.  He said the Ministry has  contracted a company which does  to provide information to the  Committee, but not all the  information is relevant and a lot  or relevant information has been  left out.  "We need financing to do  . t-'. _W.es that aren't part of the  Ferihill material," Frith said.  Frith pointed out that the  LRUP fits into the category of a  'round-table", a form of  community discussion BC's  government claims to support  and encourage around the  province - monetarily if  necessary.  He indicated (hat $10,000 to  $15,000 would be enough to  finance the LRUP, referring to  the amount as "peanuts" in the  broader scope of government  spending.  Area A by-law attacked  by Jsn Michael Sherman  "We're here to bring people up  to date on the planning process  for Bylaw 337," SCRD Director  of Planning Judy Skogstad told  those attending last  Wednesday's public meeting at  the Madeira Park Legion.  Instead, a significant portion  of the roughly 60 Area 'A'  residents present brought  Skogstad and her sub-committee  up to date on their largely  negative feelings concerning the  new bylaw which would  supplant existing Bylaw 96.  Until 1985, Bylaw 96 was  applied coastwide. Then all  regional areas with the  exception of Area A voted to  replace il with Bylaw 310. Prior  lo the meeting, SCRD Director  Brett McGillivray summarized  the essential flaw in the old  bylaw.  "It's a good news/bad news  dichotomy. The good news is  that under 96 you can do  whatever you want with your  property. Tlie bad news is so can  your neighbour."  Wednesday night's meeting  was only the latest step in the  long, painful and controversial  process. Input    from  those attending will be studied  and integrated into the evolving  new bylaw. Then, according to  Ms. Skogstad, an official public  hearing   will   take   place,  hopefully in mid-October.  Commenting on the old  bylaw, Skogstad stated, "It is  inconsistent and poorly-  written."  A number of residents  weren't sure that 337 was any  better, and a few made it clear  they were happy with old 96.  Angry area resident Jerry  Underdown said the new bylaw  will make it difficult for a lot  of people to continue their  Arc* 'A' resident Jerry Underdown voices his opinion on  controversial new Bylaw 337 at last Wednesday's public meeting  In Madeira Park. See story. Jan Michael Sherman photo.  He took the opportunity lo  lecture the official panel: "I  moved up here to get away from  red tape! So if we gotta live  with them (bylaw regulations),  let's vote on 'em!" The applause  and vocal support accorded the  nun's remarks set the tone for  the meeting.  Writer Edith Daly echoed  Underdown's demand for  referendums, singling out  Skogstad for some withering  criticism when it was  mentioned by Skogstad, almost  in passing, that the new bylaw  had already received ils second  reading.  Daly insisted on being told  not only precisely when the  second reading had taken place,  but why residents of Area 'A'  had not been given prior notice.  But the visibly unnerved  Skogstad could not recall the  exact date of the second reading  and stammered that the SCRD  doesn't normally issue  notification of second readings.  At another point in her  remark* Ms Daly declared,  'You are taking a textbook kind  of planning and applying it to a  very special area. It is not  suitable. 1 think we are having  (337) foisted on us. And 1 don't  think Ihe second reading should  be considered legitimate. We  should have a referendum."  Maintaining order (and his  composure) during the lengthy  barrage of pointed questions and  heated mini-speeches from the  floor, chairman Tom Barker  pointed out, "It's jusl about  impossible to hold referendums  on each and every aspect of the  new bylaw."  There was a good deal of  debate and discussion as to  whether the new bylaw would  adversely affect a wide variety  of home-based businesses and  cottage industries. The  prevailing sentiment was that,  at the very least, 337 must be  scrutinized microscopically and  made to reflect the "true needs"  of this "unique area." A few  residents appeared to be in  favour of scrapping 337 entirely  and staying with 96.  Many in the audience  indicated that, as it is now  drawn, 337 does not adequately  define or clearly spell out the  precise types of businesses  which would or would not be  permitted.  Liberal Party Leader and Area  'A' director Gordon Wilson did  not make an appearance,  apparently out of a desire not to  politicize or otherwise  influence the bylaw issue.  NDP candidate and area  resident Howard White,  however, was in attendance.  Long and Bruce  look at Sechelt  Sewer system  Minister of Municipal  Affairs Graham Bruce and MLA  Harold Long were on hand last  week to hear the concerns of  frustrated West Sechelt  residents who want a solution  to the sewer problems in their  area.  "I've looked at the site," said  Long, "and I'm amazed that  people live in those conditions. I  thought the Minister should see  the problems at first hand."  To bring Long and Bruce up to  date on the issue, Sechelt's  Acting Administrator Art Lew  said previous grant applications  to the Ministry had been  disallowed so his department is  currently preparing modified  plans for a more cost effective  approach for Creekside and  Lynwood sewer plants, as well  as three private package plants  which are also having problems.  He said the Department of  Highways has extended the use  of the ditch for Ihe temporary  pipeline by one year. "It's  debatable whether they're going  to want keep that for loo long,"  he commented.  Minister of  Municipal  Affairs  Graham  Bruce.  "It's urgent we find a  solution, particularly for  Lynwood and Creekside, and we  want to nip some other  problems in the bud before they  occur."  Lew said revised costs for the  project are estimated at between  $1 million and $1.2 million,  with an additional $600,000 to  $700,000 for work on a problem  area on Binnacle Street.  "Binnacle has been a problem  since day one," he said. "They  were allowed to proceed with  private septic systems, and the  ground would not perc.  "There have been high counts  of raw sewage in the ditches  there. It's been well documented  by the Ministry of Health and  the Ministry of Environment."  Lew said the Municipality is  hoping to get grants for SO to 75  percent of the costs, which  would put costs to individual  householders at $400 to $500. In  order to reduce Ihis cost to  individuals, the Municipality is  considering spreading the costs  over more hookups.  "The problem with that is the  capacity of the treatment plant,"  he said. "Right now the capacity  is about 3000 units. An upgrade  lo bring the capacity up to 6000,  the amount of our outfall  permit, would be about $1.5  million.  "We wouldn't be able to  increase our outfall permit  unless we went to a tertiary  treatment system, which would  be very, very expensive."  Bruce was reluctant to  promise a specific percentage of  the cost of the project. He said  this year his department had  increased money allocated to  water and sewer projects  throughout the province from  $30 million to $95 million.  "We're already over  subscribed with the amount of  applications," he said. "That  extra 25 percent (over the 50  percent) may be very difficult  to come by. So many  communities are upgrading their  systems." "Do they have  raw sewage in a pipe running  through their ditches?" asked  West Sechelt resident Lynn  Wilson.  "I've seen a couple of places  where that's the case," replied  Bruce.  "Surely we'd be given some  consideration because of the  emergency situation we're faced  with," Alderman Doug Rei  said to Bruce.  Adding to Reid's comment!  Lew  told the Minister th  revised plans should put th  Municipality within range o  the 50 percent grant. This sun  would take care of the collee  tiori  system  for  Lynwood  Creekside and Binnacle. Thi  present   capacity   of   thi  treatment plant is adequate fo  this, but expansion of the plan  will have to be considered somt  time within the next ten years.  "Where   there's   a   supei  emergency, that's when Harolc  (Long) is going to have make s  request  to  Cabinet,"  Bruce  commented.  "How soon are we going to  get something happening?,"  asked Moira Zealand, another  West Sechelt resident. "We'd  like to see action, and we'd like  to see il very soon.  "We've lived with this  problem for a long time. We've  seen more and more  development happening which is  straining the system. We would  like to know how quickly we  are going to actually see that  something is going to be done."  "From our end, it's a matter of  submitting plans, and seeing  what's affordable," Lew replied.  "That's been going back and  forth (to the Ministry) since  June or July. We're finalizing  the plans for the low pressure  pumping system and they are  supposed to be finished before  the end of September.  "We expect some kind of response by October. If we're  successful, the funds will be  allocated to us in this fiscal  year. Depending on the weather,  it could be started by the early  spring."  Court tosses out  pulp mill suit  A lawsuit brought by Gibsons crab fisherman Danny  Gagnier, against Howe Sound Pulp and Paper and Western  Canada Pulp and Paper was thrown out of court last week.  Gagnier was suing the pulp mill giants for past nnd future  financial losses incurred when the shellfish closure was imposed  on Howe sound due to dangerous dioxin levels.  The case went to court in May, but last week B.C.  SupreflN Court Justice Lance finch said he could not rale cat  the allegations that the mills were responsible for the closures.  Having beard evidence against Gagnier's credibility as  a witness, Finch Mated, "With all the time, effort and expense  consumed by this case, it is unfortunate that It should be  determined on the issue of credibility. It is, however,  unnecessary, and therefore unwise for the court to eipress  opinions on the other interesting and important Issues.*  Gagnier's lawyer, David Sutherland, said the decision  was "...very disappointing," and added it was too early to decide  whether or not to nppeal.

According to the figures  quoted by Hagen, the District  has budgeted considerably less  for Special Education in the  1991/92 school year lhan in the  1990/91 year, and asked Ihe  Roard "to immediately review-  its expenditures .... and advise  me of its specific plan to  comply with the legislation  (Section 129 I of the School  Act)."  Secretary Treasurer Tim  Anderson explained lhat tlte  figures quoted by Hagen do not  reflect the fact lhal Special  Needs children have been integrated       into      regular  classrooms. Many of the costs  of iheir education have been  absorbed into the overall  budget, leaving only certain  services such as speech therapy,  learning assistance and other  specific needs which can be  shown in the budget as a direct  cost in their education.  "We do not lake a portion of  each teacher and cost it out to  Special Education." said  Anderson "We jusl account lor  ihe incremental casts of special  programs, and the costs of  specific teachers who are  allocated to special needs.  "Our fiscal framework under  the new block funding  arrangement! generates money  for total costs for special needs  children  Director of Programs Colleen  Elson slid the misunderstanding  has been further compounded  because the Ministry is using  outdated guidelines from a lime  when Special Needs children  Another step for Olsons  The Sechelt golf course came  one step closet last week and is  getting up to Ihe wire as  Council passed a motion giving  the Olson brolhers and their  new partner Stephen Chan an  approval in principle for the  project and signed .in interim  agreement which will allow the  partners to proceed with  preliminary work on tlie site  Nexl step is for the  Municipality to secure the  Crown Grant from the  Ministry of Lands for 100 acres  and a lease of a further SO acres  Council has stipulated that  Seclielt Golf Management must  have a minimum investment of  $2.4 million in place by October  31.

Grant for regional park  The Sunshine Coast Regional District has received a free  Crown grant for a regional park. Lands and Parks Minister  Dave Parker and Mackenzie MLA Harold Long  announced last week.  Whispering Firs Park is situated 10 kilometres north of  Gibsons. The nine-hectare park has an estimated value nf  $200,000. The park has existed since 198-1 under a lease,  which replaced the free Crown grant.  "This grant will ensure that the land remains dedicated as  a public park.' said Parker.  were segregated from the rest of  the students.  Trustee Pat Stewart pointed  out lhat Hagen had ignored  items in the budget allocated  for special services where local  expenditures are higher than the  provincial average.  Chairperson Maureen  Clayton expressed the  frustration of all the Trustees  when she said, "The Board has  not been able at any time to get a  response from Mr. Hagen lo  meel with him lo discuss this.  When we gel this type of thing I  (hink il's an insult to the  integrity of the Board.  "I would like" (o call an  immediate meeting with Mr.  Hagen, bul given that he will  not meel with us, 1 am  wondering if we could go to the  Parliament Buildings and storm  his office and demand to be  heard"  "The sad irony of this,"  concluded District  Superintendent Clifford Smith,  "is that block funding was sold  to us as a new and useful idea,  one that would emancipate  school boards and allow us  some independence in making  decisions at the local level. We  were literally told,  'administer this according to the  needs of your students'.  "We've done that, and are now  being severely chastised and  reprimanded for doing exactly  that, and ironically, we've done  it very well. We've followed  (he Ministry's policy in  attempting to integrate special  needs children.  "Maybe we should be proud  of the reprimand because it's an  indicator of how successful  we've been."  ___p  mV 1  ���^ _______________  i-^-^_  Wml V  SPCA  f ^v*5  NEWS  ���m\  ������*��� m  i*2 "rji-.    {L\\  .a   MM  mmt'   Tt         TmM  _^B         *^H  L ���__ .T-B  This lively  pooch would be  thrilled to have  a home  complete with  fulltime walks.

Over a period of three years,  they planned to take out some of Ihe gravel and then subdivide  the property into residential lots.  With Ihe Municipality now considering an increase of minimum lot size in RR I to 10,000 square metres, Allen said the  company would have "..absolutely no choice bul lo continue extracting gravel from the property for at leasl Ihe nexl twenty  years or maybe even longer," so Ihey are asking for Ihe rezoning  which would permit minimum lot sizes of 2000 square metres.

MMM  mam Coast News, September 16,1991  Canada  Endangered species  LETTERS  The Panda, the African  Elephant and die Jaguar are nol  alone. The 1991 Canadian  Endangered Species List,  compiled by the Committee on  Ihe Status of Endangered  Wildlife in Canada, has now  reached 211 species.  "The news is a sobering  reminder thai Canada is not  immune to the ongoing erosion  of Ihe rich diversity of life on  the planet,'' Steven Price, Vice-  President of Conservation for  World Wildlife Fund, said.  "Jusl as in oilier countries  around the globe, human activities are the key factor in  pushing more and more of  Canada's wildlife to Ihe brink  of extinction."  Mammals, birds, plants, as  well us reptiles and amphibians  were all represented in Ihis  year's additions lo the  endangered list.  Mammals include the  designation of the Ranks Island  and High Arctic populations of  llie Peary Caribou as endangered  and the addition of Polar Hear  and Grizzly Bear populations lo  the vulnerable category.  Birds added to the list include  Ihe eastern population of the  Loggerhead Shrike (uplisted  from threatened to endangered)  and the Louisiana Waterthrush  (listed as vulnerable).  The insect-eating Thread-  leaved Sundew from Nova  Scotia (endangered); llie While  Prairie Gentian from Ontario's  Walpole Island (endangered);  and the Golden Seal of  southwestern Ontario  (threatened) were added to the  plant category.  Southern Ontario reptiles  including the Blue Racer  (endangered); the Lake Erie  Watersnake (endangered); Ihe  Eastern Massasaiiga rattlesnake  (threatened); and the Eastern  Spiny Soflshell Turtle were  also added to Ihe list this year.  Most of the additions share  one common trait Human  activity, through the  destruction and degradation of  habitat, has heen the underlying  cause of Iheir decline, ll is,  therefore, no surprise that  southern Ontario, with ils  relatively large population, is  home to a number of the newly  designated species.  World Wildlife Fund Canada  is al the forefront of efforts to  aid the recovery of Canada's  endangered wildlife. Through  the Endangered Species  Recovery Fund, WWF is  working with Environment  Canada to initiate critical  conservation projects necessary  to boost Ihe recovery odds of  species on the endangered list.  Projects include habitat protection, promotion of private  stewardship, reintroduction of  extirpated species, the funding  of priority research needs and  the developmeni of recovery  plans.  The 1991 Canadian  Endangered Species List has been  published by World Wildlife  Fund Canada. In addition to  detailing the names and locations of Canada's endangered  wildlife, Ihe list provides the  names and addresses of the  country's wildlife ministers and  urges Canadians to wrile lo  these politicians demanding that  immediate steps be taken to aid  the recovery of endangered  wildlife in Iheir jurisdiction.

If you're not here,  you're nowhere  FROM THE HIP  J.M. Sherman    ^*-  Early in the film 'Being  Tliere" Peler Sellers (as Chance  the gardener) wanders down an  inner city street and is accosted  by a cluster of punks.  Not appreciating Chance's  arrested state of development (a  four year old in a grown man's  body), the gang harass him, the  leader menacing Chance with a  switchblade .Chance's response  has become a classic moment in  screen history.  .Not liking his reality at the  moment, Chance produces the  remote unit from his cherished  television, points it at the knife-  wielding kid, and clicks away.  His seemingly bizarre behaviour  mildly freaks out the gang, and  the ugly moment is  transformed.  Watching this scene of a  recent rainy morning, I twigged  to the insight and metaphorical  genius of the late Jerzy  Kozinski upon whose novel the  film is based.  If you don't like the picture,  change the channel. And, by  extension, if you don't like  anything occuring in your life at  any given moment, change the  channel Being technologically  gifted with the ability to make  television (among other  gadgets) do whal we want it lo  has led inexorably lo Ihe  grandiose illusion of power  which goes lo Ihe very heart of  Kozinski's almost throwaway  metaphor with Chance and the  channel changer.  Tliis is not to suggest that  humans weren't intimately  acquainted with mechanisms of  avoidance and denial prior lo the  advent of the cathode tube. Far  from it. Inner avenues of escape,  of reality modification, have  probably been around since we  evolved the ability to reflect  upon ourselves. To fear fear, in a  sense.  But television is the most  powerful, most insidious  medium capable of supplying  alternative realities to those of  us who find real life (warts and  all) something more than we  bargained for.  Television is the drug which  is truly the real enemy of the  people. Alcohol and other  powerful substances can only  change perceptions of reality,  while television creates new  reality constructs tailored to  appeal subliminally to Ihe  deepest strata of the psyche.  Most particularly those  stratum involved with value  judgement, identity formation,  and passivity loci.  When Chance clicks his  remote at the gang leader, we  laugh. Maybe we even pity the  poor bozo. How could he be so  dumb as to imagine he can click  his problems away in such  ridiculous fashion.  Anyone who finds themself  SCHOOL DISTRICT N0.46  (SUNSHINE COAST)  The Part-Time  Education Program  offers  ���One-to-one instruction in  English, Mathematics, Science and  other subjects  -Morning, afternoon and  evening classes  -An informal learning  atmosphere  To apply, call 885*2991  after 9 am  or visit the P.E.P. portable  classroom at Elphinstone  feeling smug and superior to  poor Chance not only misses the  point, but reveals themself to be  grossly out of touch with their  own inner process Kozinski and  the film are suggesting, very  subtly, that we should wake up  and examine our own version of  reality and our largely  automatic responses to it.  Of course it all goes much  deeper than mere escape and  avoidance. Changing the reality  channels in life is symptomatic  of personal issues far more  complex than one might  imagine. But suffice it to say  lhat inauthentic living is the  price paid by anyone who refuses  (for whatever reasons) to stand  alone and defenseless in the eye  of one's own personal existence,  accepting whatever reality is  yours in the moment and  refusing to flinch.  The interesting thing about  Chance's chance encounter with  the street toughs is that  throughout he remains calm and  unafraid, insofar as we can  tell.This is not so much a result  of his regressed state, but a  function of the fact that Chance  trusts. Simply trusts. He  doesn't know how to be  otherwise. Trusting is an  integral part of his nature as it  was part of most people's - at  least until they exchanged it for  uncertainty and fear.  And it is largely, if not  exclusively, in moments of  uncertainty and fear thai people  find their reality pictures not to  their liking and quickly make  some attempt or other to change  the channel.  This is precisely when Ihey go  from being here to being  somewhere else. Unfortunately,  somewhere else is not and never  can be Real. It jusl seems to be  real once you've gone ihere often  enough. It's like Ihe alcoholic or  addict who gets to the point  where drunk and sober cannot  truly be differentiated anymore.  When changing the channel  changes only the intensity of the  light, the canned laughter, or the  manufactured moans of those  suffering and dying on-cue for  your sake, perhaps it's lime for a  new reality set.  When people forsake the Real  lo hang out in the Unreal and do  so often enough, they invariably  wind up changing the channel  for good.They quite literally  become Unreal.  They trade being here for  being nowehere and wonder why  they're still not complete, still  not happy, and still not free of  whatever made them afraid of  Real life in the first place.  Oh, well, there's always the  tube.  Special kind  of caring  Editor:  On behalf of the B.C.  Children's Hospital, the B.C.  Cancer Society and my family, 1  would like to thank all the  clubs, stores and individuals  who helped make the "Teen-Peer  Counselling Retreat "a complete  success.  The response from Pender  Harbour was great. I always  knew why I live here, within the  warmth of a community  willing to volunteer and  support deserving projects and  events.  It was nice to show city folk  small town generosity and  caring for our fellow man.  Robi Petraschuk  One of those cafe  racer types  Editor:  Regarding the stereotype of,  and I quote, "You guys with  these high flying cafe racers that  make t* bad name for bikers and  drive Ihe insurance rates up,"  (Cafe Racers Headed for  Trouble - Coast News, Aug.  19); llie bike rider in your letter  should slow down. But don't  think lhat everyone lhat owns a  sport bike rides like him.  You refer to his fancy, flashy,  full-face helmet. By the term  "fancy, flashy", 1 gather you  wear an open-face helmet. If this  is so, you are about as dumb as  the cutoff and tee shin gang -  one good spill would have you  looking like the phantom of the  opera.  Insurance rates go up, not lie-  cause of bike riders in general,  bul because of bad drivers.  Your stereotyping sets a dangerous precedence; for instance,  "Harley Davidson riders are  slobs and Hell's Angels." Of  course this is stupid.  Sport bikes look fast but Ihey  are no faster than standard bikes  without fairings.  Every time I ride, I do so with  the knowledge that it could be  dangerous, and I dress to protect  myself with leathers, gloves  and boots and that fancy, flashy,  full-face helmet that hopefully  will save me.  I find your remarks insulting  and ignorant. You say you have  ridden bikes; then you know it's  the person on the bike that  makes il go fast. Get ihe license  plate number and slow him  down.  Also, you don't ride with a  little common sense - you ride  with a lot.  Laurence C. Owen  Sanctuary success  depends on you  Editor:  The Sargeant Bay Wetland  Rehabilitation Project has been  completed and Sargeant Bay  Provincial Park now features a  Wildlife Sanctuary.  The channel, dredged in 1977,  which diverted Colvin Creek  and partially drained the marsh,  was closed three weeks ago. The  resulting lake and island are  showing promising signs of  nature taking over. Bulrushes  and other grasses are already  sprouting upon the island.  There are fish in the lake,  probably small cutthroat trout,  that must have come in from the  creek. The first migrating  shorebirds already passed by  while the lake was being  excavated.The first fresh-water  ducks and geese have arrived.  This fall Colvin creek will be  stocked with salmon fry, which  will spend a year in the lake and  will return after two more  years via the fishladder, to  spawn in the creek.  Success of the sanctuary  depends to a large extent on the  co-operation of the public. To  make this a true WILDIife  sanctuary, three simple rules of  conduct need to be followed.  They are: do not release pets in  the park, do not feed the ducks  and keep dogs on a leash.  The fust rule has already been  violated by someone who  released two Canada Geese he  had raised from eggs. These  geese have been "imprinted" to  consider people as if they are  fellow Canada Geese. They will  never migrate like the wild  members of their species. They  will follow people wherever  the see them and will become a  nuisance. If left in the wild they  may mate with wild geese and  degrade the wild stock to  become the same. They cannot be  tolerated in the sanctuary!  Joop Burgerjon  Sargeant Bay Society  School year off  to a good start  Editor:  I am pleased when 1 see such  items as The Coasl Mews  "Special Back to School  Supplement", which focuses  positively on public education  in this aiea Tlie brief articles and  awesome representation of the  administration of this school  district reveals the complexity  and diversity of public  education here.  It is clear lhat public education is a big business where we  are all shareholders. Awareness  and involvement of all shareholders is essential to ensure  thai the students represented in  the supplement diagram occupy  , the lop priority position rather  than coming, as they do, al the  bottom of the piclure.This  district has reported a 46  percent drop-oul rate - well  above the national average.  lt is vital that, in the organization and creation of a large  administration and in providing  an acceptable working situation  for the union workers, the needs  of students be identified, addressed and made a priority in  School District #46.  Thank you, Coast News, for  getting us off to a positive start.  Mary Findlay  Wild, wildworld  of Animals  IN A NUTSHELL  S. Nutter  It is hard to imagine how  many people watch the  television show 'Wild, Wild  World of Animals' these days.  It comes on the PBS network at  five o'clock in the morning, and  you have to be just getting home  or have something wrong with  your conscience, perhaps, to  catch it.  It is a standard assembly of  old animal footage narrated in a  gritty, unaccented way by  William Conrad, the fat man of  past cops and robbers pictures.  Its charm, for me at least, is that  you recognize so many of the  characters. This is old animal  footage.right? You know the  crocodile climbing up on ihe  mud flats of the Limpopo. He  smiles at you in a knowing way.  The leading elephant,  wheeling under llie eucalyptus  tree, is someone you have seen a  hundred times before. Even  crickets you know, praying  manti, octopi I recognize, a few  snakes; eels, 1 think not.  Monkies caught in the higher  branches in Madagascar you can  almost call by name. There are  and one ran straight over a  camera that the cameraman had  bees I have seen before, and  recognizable ants, I swear. There  is a certain tarantula who darts  out from a stone on the Sahara,  and it goes on and on.  I used to know some of these  people who did nature  cinematography. One spent some  weeks lying on the bottom of a  stream, breathing through a  straw and photographing the  domestic carryings on of trout.  No question they were  dedicated, but they were a race  apart,Either you were an animal  photographer or you were  interested in people. One  director at the Film Board,  Bernard Devlin, found himself  in the animal kingdom by  mistake. He was doing a film he  had written which involved, at  one point, an encounter of his  character with a bear.  How, some of us asked, was he  going to manage this? No  problem, said Bernard. He had a  place north of Montreal, not far  from the resort of Mont  Tremblanl, and he knew (of  course) where they dumped  their garbage, and he knew (of  course) that the place was alive  with bears.  He set up the lean-to that his  character was going to be  in.posted two cameras in the  bushes nearby, opened a couple  of pots of honey and waited.  Not long. Four large black  bears arrived together. Bernard,  a stalwart type, attempted to  get out there to somehow direct  the scene. The bears scattered,  kept going. The footage, so far as  I know, never reached Ihe screen  and Bernard rewrote his film,  but it's some of the funnier  stuff thai is, or should be, still  in the Film Board archives.  Another bit, now that 1 think  of it, documents the flight of  the Film Board's television  producer a bare few feet in front  of a charging buffalo. This was  definitely not in the script. The  producer was a basic sociologist  and was doing a film on the  Dene.and just thought il would  be nice to have a few buffalo on  the screen. The buffalo, most of  what we've got left, were not  far away from Yellowknife  where he was doing the rest of  the filming.  1 guess David thought thai  buffalo were about like  cows.Trailing a cameraman, he  walked out over (his bit of  prairie or muskeg or whatever  toward a huddle, or herd, of  buffalo. A bull buffalo look  exception. He wheeled about  and took after David, and the  cameraman managed to catch the  expression on David's  face Again (of course) this never  appeared on any screens.  Cousleau has to live a belter  life than any President of  France. But you never really see  Cousleau at it. When he is  photographed by one of his  people, flipping along the edge  of some coral reef in one of the  warmer climes, he is always  heavily masked. The only lime  we really see Cousleau he is  wearing a seaman's toque,  sitting about in the sun on the  afterdeck of his beautiful boat,  discussing the philosophical  aspects of Man and the Animal  Kingdom.  True nature photographers  have all my admiration.

After decades of flagrant patronage, graft, corruption and  deplorable, if not non-existent, ethical and moral standards, his  Socred party is now reaping a long-deserved whirlwind. Whether  this cleansing wind will sweep them out of power will be  determined shortly.  For many frustrated citizens, democratic processes as they  pertain to politics often seem to proceed at what appears to be a  maddeningly glacial pace. It is to be hoped that, partly as a result  of the sorry Socred record epitomized by Mr. Vander Zalm's  behaviour in office, an aroused, concerned electorate acting in  concert with new political leaders of greater probity, vision,  enlightenment, and sensitivity will bring about much-needed  reforms in Ihis area. Mr. Harcourt has long been on record as  promising comprehensive governmental reform and there is  every good chance he will be afforded an opportunity to prove as  good as his word.  Like compulsive cleaner Lady Macbeth, Premier Rita Johnston  is bravely and perhaps desperately attempting lo rid herself of  the stain of Vander Zalm's administration. Rut being indelible,  this task is proving lo Ih* as fruitless as it must be frustrating.  As an integral part of the previous government and a Vander  Zalm loyalist to the hitler end, Ms Johnston is irrevocably  wedded to his administration. She must accepl the consequemces  of having toughed il out for largely self-serving ends rather than  doing the right thing by bringing whal she knew of Vander  Zalm's transgressions to the public's attention.  Had she exhibited her own grit and integrity in such a fashion,  Premier Johnston might not have become trapped between the  rock and political hard place where she and her embattled  administration currently find themselves.  Liberal voice is valid  Rita Johnston presses for one, Mike Harcourt dances around in  the negative, and whether there will be any formal campaign  debates is entirely up in Ihe air Given that today's politicians  reach only a miniscule portion of the voting public personally,  any forum which even approximates a free exchange of ideas  among competing candidates is invaluable.  Of course, unenlightened self-interest being what it is in  politics, don't hold your breath waiting for the public to receive  that which it needs to make informed choices  Should debates materialize, perhaps Ihe most important  question is whether Gordon Wilson's Liberal Party should be  included. At least one influential columnist believes il should  not. Writing in Ihe Vancouver Sun, Vaughn Palmer claims  Wilson's party has been "consigned lo the fringes" for more than  ten years, thai the Liberals haven t "earned" debate participation  "at the ballot box." Palmer points to Preston Manning's  successes "without any free ride from the news media or the  political process," and implies the Liberals should take the hint  and quit complaining.  We disagree Gordon Wilson and his Liberals are not looking  for a free ride, merely the consideration and participation earned  by dint of being a long-established political entity which  provides a viable alternative. And far from being some marginal,  one-man crusade, the Liberals will be fielding candidates in  virtually all constituencies.  Wilson's contention that a minority government (with his  minions holding the balance of power) is the best possible  election outcome has a certain undeniable logic and appeal given  what monolithic majorities have wrought.  Mr. Wilson is one of the hardest-working politicians in the  province and some might claim the most quixotic. The Liberals  may have averaged less than five per cent of the vole in the last  two elections, but what of it? The B.C. Lions aren't thrown out  of the league just because they have a couple of dismal seasons.  Democracy and ihe democratic process isn't about numbers of  voles garnered, it's about ihe free exchange of ideas and the  dissemination of those ideas to everyone interested in receiving  them. Democracy is about inclusion, not exclusion, in the  process.  II Harcourt and Johnston waffle the debate issue to death,  maybe Gordon Wilson should buy some tube lime and debate a  couple of empty chairs Al leasl he'd get his message across  unimpeded  Furthermore, the empty chairs would symbolize nicely the  fact that sometimes the so-called "fringe" Davids have more lo  offer qualitatively than do the entrenched, musclebound  Goliaths.  LETTERS  Ah, yes, and then there was  Newfoundland. (Please note the  pronunciation:  NoofundLAND).  They call Canada's most  easterly and youngest province  The Rock', and so it is. The fust  thing most people see on arrival  after the shorter of two ferry  crossings which connect The  Rock to Nova Scotia is at Port  aux Basques on the extreme  southwest tip of the island.  From the ferry you drive  through a cut made in solid rock.  In our case we arrived at  Argentia, a much longer  crossing, and left from Port  Aux Basques. Coming or going,  first or lasl impression, it  speaks eloquently of  Newfoundland.  The island sits well out in the  North Atlantic. From the lop  of Signal Hill to the East of St.  John's harbour, a global chart  tells me that it is twice as far  from where I am to where I live  in Roberts Creek as it is lo  Europe across the grey-blue sea.  The harbour of SL John's is  spectacular, and much of the    ''  coast line, where the edges of  the great seabound plateau meet  the waters, is carved inlo  astonishingly picturesque coves  and harbours  Almost a third of the  population of the province lives  in or around the capital in the  eastern comer of the island.  Most of the rest are scattered  throughout the thousands of  lesser harbours around die  fringe of the island.  Lesser only in size, for stark  beauty where land and water  collide is astonishing both in its  enormous variety and unfailing  appearance at the end of every  road explored.  Newfoundland seems like  Canada underlined There is the  line of population, in  Newfoundland's case along the  seashore - in Canada's, largely  along the southern border  Behind that line, there is a great  Where land and  water collide  MUSINGS  John Burnside  emptiness of rock and tree  In Newfoundland, life has  largely been based on the  extraction of natural resources -  mostly fish, though there are a  couple of pulp mills at Corner  Brook and Grand Falls. The raw  resources are diminished now  and there is a great anxiety  about the future.  Newfoundland leads the  nation in unemployment,  almost 20*. The dilemma of the  young who must leave home to  find employment is more  poignant and more desperate  here lhan in the rest of the country .though nowhere in Canada is  a stranger lo ihis.  There is a speech panem and a  folk culture which is shaped by  the harshness of the  environmental and economic  climate. The folk singer on the  boat is full of professional  ebullience and defiant songs  about folk who wither when  they leave their roots. But the  reality of life in Newfoundland  is unmistakably difficult.  There is the weather, for  example. The only thing thai  makes Newfoundlanders a little  shamefaced, it would appear, is  discussion of the weather.  "We had three days of summer  this year," one man laments.  lt may not have been that bad.  Tlie sun shines on three of our  eight days on The Rock, at least  on the day we arrive and on the  day we leave, and one other day  when we were in forced  encampment by an automobile  repair shop.  For Ihe rest, Ihe wind blew  from every poinl of the compass  and, for much of the lime, it  lashed rain onto our bodies and  the landscape.  This is, for the most part, a  desolate and windblown rock.  Fran picked no flowers in  Newfoundland - she figured Ihe  province couldn'l afford lo lose  any.  Tliere are caribou herds in the  interior, and moose, introduced  from Nova Scotia and New  Brunswick, have flourished to  about one hundred and twenty-  odd thousand.  Apart from caribou and a  moose, tliere but invisible, the  inlerior of Newfoundland is an  empty land reminiscent of lhat  portion of the Canadian North  where the taiga meets the  tundra.Greal bogs alternate  with wind-thrashed trees of  diminutive stature.  The tourist brochures are  wTilten in a brave English. They  tell of mile after mile of virgin  forests, for example.  1 survey the puny gallants  eking out an existence between  wind and rock, survey ihem  through the rain and pronounce  them sourly more prepubescent  than virginal.  The northwest peninsula of  the island, al its far tip, is a rich  archaeological region. There are  ihe remains of the ancient  Maritime Indians, buried there  some five thousand years ago;  there are traces of Iwo different  Eskimo settlements; and there  is evidence of the first Vikings  in North America, including a  smith apparently for the forging of iron nails from bog iron  of the area.  Al L'Anse aux Meadows  where the Vikings camped, Fran  and I are wearing the bright  yellow plastic raincoats they  gave us at Niagara Falls. The  flimsy fabric is tearing in the  driving wind and the rain is  horizontal.  "They're all either dead or  fled," 1 tell Fran, and turn to the  warmth of the visitor's  information centre.  Much is made in the centre of  Newfoundland of the vanished  Beothuks, the native Indians of  the island. Here, again, the  Canadian story is more harshly  lold. The Beothuks, by report a  handsome and gentle people,  were hunted to extinction by  the Europeans, bounty placed on  their heads. The last young  woman was captured about 1820  and died heart-broken shortly  thereafter.  It is starkly handsome in  places, this youngest province of  ours. Bul a harsh place with a  cruel history. There are  economic development groups  and community fututes organizations but no sense of any  real coming to grips with the  harsh challenges of wind and  rock and depleted fish stocks,  bargained away by Britain and  federal Canada. But that's  another story.  They say the strength of a  chain is the strength of its  weakest link. The federal chain  of Canada must be gauged, not  by the Toronto skyline alone,  but by the harsh bleak places  where native riches have been  exploited and the future seems  uncertain indeed. The Rock is  not the least among the  Canadian challenges.  Cant support  the status quo  Editor  Harold Long's pre-election ad  stresses the economic benefits  of the forest industry,  especially to "Small Town.  BC". As a person employed in  ihe indusiry on the Coasl. 1  agree, bul there are several  problems with supporting  status quo forestry  First of all, these economic  benefits may not be the  maximization of economic  benefit from forests. Thailand  allowed Japanese interests to  log teak to depletion in the  short time frame of twenty  years, with paltry long term  economic benefit. Sustainability  may mean less benefit in the  short term in order to have a  healthy industry for the future.  Secondlv. economic benefit  and economic criteria have been  the only benefits stressed by  forest management in the past  Non-economic benefits such as  carbon-oxygen regulation,  climate and water regulation  and bio-diversity are not  measured or accounted for  Finally, ihere are more than  enough powerful voices to  express the economic argument  A candidate who advocates  informed submission and  decision making by all shareholder groups (including  generations in the future), a  candidate committed to  facilitating fair process and  local input will get my vote.

Stinging  indictment of  Forest Service  Editor:  A highly critical internal  document from the federal  Department of Fisheries and  Oceans was released lo the  public on Aug. 19. Complete  wilh 12 pages of colour photographs of logging infractions,  it is a stinging indictment of the  ineffectualness of the Ministry  of Forests.  lt is a blistering attack on  pasl and current logging  practices in T.F.L. 46 on  southern Vancouver Island. The  report says the M.O.F. is neither  "... willing or even able to  correct its policy toward  enforcement of the terms and  conditions of Cutting Permits  particularly with such a notable  lack of field staff."  The reporl charges that  "Within T.F.L. 46, the practice  of integrated resource  management appears to have  been disregarded as infractions  of T F Land C.P. conditions are  epidemic."  The public trust that the  people of B C. have given to the  Ministry of Forests to be  stewards of our forests has been  broken. The Minister of Forests,  Claude Richmond, should  tender his resignation and the  ministry of Forests should be  abolished in its present form.  In its place, a Ministry of  Natural Resources, where  timber extraction is only one  use of our forestes, should be  established as recommended by  the Forest Resources  Commission.

Last week Bateman joined a  hiking party organized by The  Friends of Caren' to see for  himself one of the last patches  of old growth forest on the  Coast.  Recent studies have shown  that trees in Ihe Caren are  among the oldest in Canada,  with growth rings on felled  yellow cedar trees showing ages  of up to 1500 years, and the  expectation that standing trees  may be even older.  Bateman, who moved from  Ontario to BC five years ago,  was enthusiastic about the  opportunity to see the old trees.  "There's three species here I've  never seen before," he added,  "yellow cedar, mountain  hemlock and amabilis fir."  Bateman was also interested  in the marbled murrelet, which  is believed to nest in the area.

BONDED LICENSED INSURED  Blanches Coast-to-Coast  Sharon  Rumba  885-2228  Ralph Jones and other members  of the group told him they had  seen and heard the small seabird  on several occasions.  "This is a chance to change a  dreadful global trend," Bateman  told the Coast News, "before  we wipe out everything and are  scraping the bottom of the  barrel.-  "There are still a few pieces of  wonderful stuff left in British  Columbia, which you can't say  for the rest of the world. It's  just at the turning point now.  Almost every month counts.  "I believe there is no place at  the end of the twentieth century  for maga-anything, - mega-  logging, mega-agriculture,  mega-fishing, mega-mining.  "Mega-logging really has to  stop. Logging doesn't have to  slop, just mega-logging."  Bateman is in favour of  .elective logging as a method of  preserving the integrity of the  forests, but had some critical  words for the big logging  companies, which, he said, are  mainly owned by large multinational companies.  "Multi-national money is like  mercury," he observed. "It  doesn't care, it flows to where it  can accumulate the most.  "They'll just rape the coast of  British Columbia and they'll  pretend they care about jobs and  the future. But they don't.  They'll pull out when it's not  profitable and go to Venezuela,  and destroy Venezuela's forests,  and when they're finished with  that, they'll go to the  Phillipines. And then they'll go  into whiskey or cosmetics. It  doesn't matter.  "MacMillan Bloedel is  owned by Noranda, and Noranda  is owned by Bronfman. That  kind of money doesn't care.  "I wish they'd go on to the  whiskey and cosmetics right  now and leave a bit of precious  heritage for future generations."  Bateman said it was  important to develop a general  policy, backed by the  government, lo ensure Ihe maximum number of jobs from the  logging industry.  "I care about jobs," he  declared. "Every true  environmentalist does. One of  the most important things is  work for our citizens. Canada  has Ihe worst record  (internationally) for jobs in the  forest industry. Tlte US has two  jobs for every Canadian job, and  Europe has something like six."  Returning lo the subject of  the Caren, Bateman continued, "I  believe in fighting every little  battle. This one is particularly  precious."  Well known  wildlife artist  Robert  Bateman  came to the  Coast  recently to  take a look at  the Caren  Range. Here,  Paul Jones  and other  members of  the Friends  of Caren  show him a  map of the  area. See  story. Rose  Nicholson  photo.

For now, yes,  yel Ihe Sunshine Coast has the  same amenities as Alaskan  towns and settlements. All,  thai is, except a recent  shattering earthquake and tidal  waves. A museum, historic sites,  scenery, glaciers we have; even  some sport fishing. Rut  Alaskans have marketing flair.  Nothing as awesome as the  Alaskan glaciers, of course, but  otherwise we match their  amenities but not their pizazz.  Even Vancouver doesn't affect  the cruise passenger, since three  quarters of them head directly  from ship to airport upon  landing.

Historic sites were  restored; Ihe White Pass and  Yukon railway had found a new  customer, the tourist, to save its  closing down when the trucks  look over the dwindling freight  business; and of course the  souvenir shops!  Alaskans do present Iheir  history and topography with  unabashed enthusiasm  One jaded traveller was overheard, as he came aboard al a  slop, "Another town jusl like  the lasl one!" ll was suspected  he had been dragged through the  shops again. The limit to T-shirt  purchases is soon reached even at  end-of-season price cuts.  Alaska's slate flag with its  Big Dipper and North star in  gold on a deep blue background  was the design of a 13-year old  boy in a school contest. His  reasons for the colours and stars  make quite a touching story  which Alaskans love to tell.  In Sitka, the Russian dancers,  all parts taken by ladies, present  a delightful show - over 250  times a year. The omale Russian  Orthodox church, its  congregation almost entirely  Tlingits, preserves a touch of  the home country and days when  Alaska was a Russian colony.  We saw Ihe films, several  limes over, lhal a few dedicated  amateurs had taken in the four  towns hit by the catastrophic  earthquake and tidal waves of  1%4. We watched, fascinated,  and all loo aware that the same  upheaval can strike the Sunshine  Coast al any time.

The residents were  having their morning coffee  when the air was suddenly  punctured with the bellowing  sounds of Moo... Moo...  Of course prairie people instantly recognize the sound of a  cow in heat. (So I'm told!)  Immediately, they were all out  herding poor Bessie in the  direction of home, across the  busy highway. Did any of these  moo-vers think to milk her? If  you're in doubt, Alf Lucas has  pictures to prove it!  The new Adventure  Playground in Brookman Park  certainly attacts a lol of  attention these days. What a  delightful spot to take the wee  ones. The setting is most  impressive and the grounds are  beautifully kept... Take a peek.  Fall is creeping up on us in  subtle ways, though we do our  best to ignore them. Although  the days are still warm and  sunny, the evenings and early  mornings are nippy.  One of the not-so-subtle signs  are the number of little drunken  birds that are seen laying  around. It seems they are eating  the fermented Mountain Ash  berries, getting a glow on and  banging into windows... Don't  worry, eventually they sober up.

REGIONAL DISTRICT NOTES  FAST FERRY  Regional District Directors will meet with Lyall Hanson,  Minister of Highways, at this week's Union of BC  Municipalities (UBCM) convention to discuss the fast ferry  issue.  Director Jim Gumey stressed the Minister be made aware of  the Board's position that the present ferry system must be  improved before any consideration be given to a fast ferry.  At the suggestion of Director Eric Small, the Board will ask  for a public meeting to discuss the issue.  HYDRO INVESTIGATES DEAD TREES  The District will cooperate with BC Hydro in their  investigation of some dead trees on the power line right-of-way  in the Kleindale area of Pender Harbour.  Hydro has concluded that the condition of the trees suggests  they were killed by herbicides, and according to their records,  they have not sprayed in the area.  The District will write to Forestry and ask for an explanation.

But knowing that sin* never  would again forced my tear..  1 know now she is a statistic;  one of many who make up the  highest rate of suicide per capita  of any group in Canada. Native  children are killing themselves  so last that 1 could go to a funeral every day of the week  across Canada.  The reasons are many, of  course, and most relate lo generations of policies towards  Native people. Unemployment,  racism and lack of opportunities  are the ledge from which our  children jump.  Native people couldn't vote in  ihis country until the sixties, ll  was against the law to practice  Native Culture such as the |k��-  lach system and the Sundance.  We are all finally beginning to  learn about the atrocities that  were committed against Native  children in Ihe residential  schools, generation after generation.  Every other culture was in  vited into this mosaic of  Canadian culture. Native people  were forced to "assimilate".  Native children, for generations,  were grabbed by the scruff of  Iheir necks and lold that what  Iheir ancestors have lived and  stood for, for thousands of  years, was "no good".  I suppose whal amazes me is  that Native people are still  alive ttxlay, considering what  they have had lo go through  since Iheir homeland became  Canada. Thai the culture is still  alive is a testament to thousands  of years of culture which, in  simple terms, worked in harmony wilh the world around it.  What can I say? She is dead. A  by-product of Canada. I will  miss her forever. Across Canada  others are missing the smile of a  son or daughter or friend who is  also a casualty of this thing  called Canada.  I am angry and I am hurl.  Canada, the country I was born  in and raised in, is suffering lite  same fate that every country is  suffering from since moving  away from aboriginal values.  We find ourselves at the brink  of destruction via environmental abuse, war and social  conflict.  Is thai a long way from miss  ing an old school friend? I don't  Ihink so. She ended her life, as  are other Native children daily,  because she could not "see the  |X)inl". Her life, and Ihe lives of  many Native people, lost its  meaning.  Some would say lhat our  Native children are like the  Canaries in a cage that miners  used below ground to warn  them of danger.  The children are telling us  that something is very wrong.  Their message of danger is nol  only for Native people, it is for  all Canadians. Our dying lakes  and streams are giving this same  message. Canada's |X)or and  homeless sing the same death  song.  Wc can look at the problem in  broad terms or small. The  warning i.s that Ihe policies lhat  produce the tragedy of Native  suicide and cultural collapse are  also resulting in the social and  environmental collapse of the  nation as a whole.  I will not completely know  the sadness my friend held. The  dying environment and the poor  and homeless probably didn't  even cross her mind. She jusl  looked around her and couldn't  see the point of living.  an i  Men's Wear  Reg. $299S  m  ,-L*. ... i ...,_..W_����>_Vi._r.._A^_��_r_/*._^^ '..- ; /jf_.Sj_U_fcJifciaW..^/->//_JJ^^*^.x:...>e...v  !��_KM-_B*��-______, Coast News, September 16,1991  13.

Ml trusses engineered hy      TDnCUrmt  On the Rocks  by Kan Tamer  This week, I would like to  tell you a little about each of  the curlers on the curling team.  The four team members are the  Lead, the Second, the Third and  the Skip. Each team member has  a different part to play in the  game.  The Lead starts off the play  by throwing two rocks which  should be in the house or just in  front of the house, so a Lead  must have a dependable draw  weight.  A draw weight rock is one  which is softly thrown toward  the center circles. The circles are  known as "the house".  The Second throws the second  pair of stones in the end. The job  of the Second is to remove  opposition lead stones or to  draw to the house if requested.  Hence, the second player is  usually a more experienced  curler than a lead because the  position is a little more  complicated.  The Third delivers the third  pair of stones. The Third may be  asked lo throw a knockout  stone, a draw stone or some of  the more complicated shots such  as the "come around", the "free"  or the "touch back". TheThirdis  also involved in the strategy of  the game, since he holds the  broom for the Skip to shoot at.  The Skip is the team leader,  and is required to throw the last  pair of stones. S/he is the one  who figures out the strategy for  the other team players. S/he  should also be a good  shotmaker, since it is this player  who must make the final shots  of the end. Much of a team's  success depends upon the  accuracy of this team member's  shots.  Of course the success of the  club, like the success of the  team, depends upon all members  working together in the very  best way they can to help all the  other members.  If you feel you would like to  participate in this friendly  sport, feel free to contact one of  the club members. Some  members you might contact are  club president Gary Flumerfelt  at 886-9656, Harry Turner at  886-2184, or icemaker manager  John Munroe at 886-7512. Any  one of these members will ensure you are signed up for the  fall leagues. Watch for the  Gibsons Winter Club ads which  will appear soon.  By the way, club members, if  you have any spare time over Ihe  fall and you can help out at the  club in any way, lei Gary know.  He can always use your help.  Pender Golf Club  memberships questioned  The sale of memberships in  the Pender Harbour Golf Club  may not be in accordance with  the agreement they have with  the Regional District. The issue  will be the subject of an  upcoming discussion between  the District and club members.  In a telephone conversation  with Regional District  administrator Larry Jardine, he  told the Coast News the club  leases the land for the golf  course from the District for a  nominal sum, but the club house  was built and financed by the  club members and belongs to  them.  Although the agreement with  the District stipulates that the  course be open to the public,  Jardine said this does not  necessarily apply to the club  house.  Club membership is perfectly  legal Jardine said, but it does  not give club members special  privileges on the course.  The issue arose when the  developers of Farrington Cove  attempted to buy memberships  in the club as a bonus offering to  purchasers of the condos.  "We're going to have a  meeting with club members  soon to iron out some of these  things," said Jardine.  "It's never been a problem, I'm  sure the members want to get  this straightened out too."  Greg Sylte Memorial  by John Reiner  Another season is now upon  us! This past weekend was the  club's second league game.  Report on the match vs. Van.  Rowing Club next week.  However, on Sept. 7, the Pigs  entertained the visiting  Meralomas II Rugby Side of  Vancouver. With new-found  exuberance and some old guard  returning, the locals were excited and enthusiastic about the  the up-coming game.  This year's side is looking to  make their game style "speed  and fitness", as was last year's,  this being evident from the size  of bodies turning out week after  week. Who says you need size lo  win?!  A beautiful day it turned out  to be and the fans turned out in  force. The game started on time  and it was a good one.  With the size advantage and  experience they brought wilh  them, the Lomas took a  modicum of control. The ball  was swung neatly and swiftly  back and forth and the first try  of the match scored in the  corner.  The Pigs did not roll over and  resign. They fought hard and  steady. Persistent defense kept  them in the game and, with a  little more attention to detail  (i.e. marking your man), the  tries scored against Ihem will  be fewer and farther between.  Throughout the match there  were definite signs of  improvement and, with time,  this side is going to compete  with the best the VRU has lo  offer. Keep training hard, fellas!  The fitness level proved  itself, even this early in the year.  The whole team contributed to  an extremely nice try, moving  the ball to and fro from one  loose play to anolher.with greal  ball handling and back-up play.  Eventually, with the "Q" man  bursting over for four points,  convert was good by Steve  "Huge" Rhodes. There won't be  any eggos on the scoreboard for  this team this season! 11  The final score ended up  Meralomas II23; Pigs 6.  A fine effort and the  opposition knew they were in a  game. Good work, boys, keep it  up to the finals!  The 6th Annual Greg Sylte  Memorial Golf Tournament is  coining up Sept 22 at 9 am, in  Pender Harbour this year.

SECHELT 885-25171  by Stuart Burnside  The competition was tough,  but Jim Scott has returned from  the BCs Senior Games with a  bronze medal for table tennis  around his neck.  The games, held in  Coquitlam September 4-7, were  attended by some 1,500 competitors in various athletic events.  Scott, the founder of the  Gibsons Table Tennis Club  (GTTC), squared off with  twenty others bidding for paddle wielding supremacy in the  men's single table tennis round  robin, 63 and over category.  The 6X -year-old Scott admits  he had doubts when he sized up  some of his opponents. "There  were a couple of guys that had  me worried," he told the Coast  News, "They had different  styles from what I usually  play." He beat both men handily.  He did lose once, though, and  it was enough to keep him from  the gold.  "I ended up playing a guy for  the bronze, in a best of three series," Scott recounted, "He won  the fust game, I won the second,  and the third game went all the  way. It was 20-20 and I needed  two points to win.l won."  Scott credits his playing  prowess to the Wednesday  nights he spends at the GTTC  and to an automatic ping pong  ball firing robot named  "Mitzi".  "You can make (Mitzi) do  anything," Scott says, "shoot  faster, add a little spin, anything."  He said one of the things that  hampered his playing in the  games was the lack of actual  tournament experience.  "I think I'm going to enter a  couple of Vancouver tournaments this year, and try to get a  provincial rating."  He said it was necessary to  win twice in tournaments to be  rated.

WORK FOR YOU  Much to consider if buying a home  Touring open houses and  inspecting prospective homes is  the fun putt of buying a home.  Where the fun seems to end  and the anxiety begins is when  you're actually ready to make an  offer on the home you want.  These feelings aren't the sole  domain of buyers, either; sellers  often feel the pressure of  decisions made in the span of  tight time frames.  Consider that many of us  will take longer to make up our  minds aboul buying a suit than  we do a home and you can  understand why the pressure can  be intense. Instead of a couple of  hundred dollars, we're talking  about thousands, probably your  family's main investment So  it's little wonder thai you're  feeling somewhat tremulous at  this point in the purchase or  sale.  The first thing lo do is try to  keep your emotions out of ihe  negotiations.   Probably   ihe  reason you're making an offer on  this particular house is because  one of you "just loves it". But  the best course of action is to  treat this offer as a straight  business deal. There'll be plenty  of time to pop the champagne  cork later!  If you're the seller, your real  estate representative has  completed a market evaluation  of your property which gives  you a good base to work from.  Also, it's his jaTt*1fer job to guide  you through this next step to  your satisfaction. Their  experien*..* should prove  invaluable to you at this poinl.  If selling and buying a home  was as simple and  straightforward as "I have a  house to sell... you like my  house... you buy my house," then  you wouldn't need to even be  reading this article. But so many  outside influences are at play,  such as markei conditions, state  of mind of the involved parties  ll*  111  MM  il!  ���  TERMINAL  forest Products Ltd.  LOG  BUYING  STATION  MNnP-Huvs rnc__  Gamp Run  CEDAR-HR-HEMLOCK  886-7033  11.  si  it  ���  ill  il  and the terms of the offer, that  it's hard to put down any rules.  However, based on the  experience of others, we can  offer some helpful advice.  After saying there are no  rules, we can tell you that, in  most cases, the first offer is  usually the best offer.  Can you remember what it'  was like when you were house  hunting? You shopped around  because you had a price in mind  and, having looked, you know  pretty much what you could get  for your money. It follows then  that a purchaser who is truly  serious about wanting your  home knows the market and  will offer a realistic price.  So if you're the seller, and the  first offer that is put in front of  you is a reasonable one, try to'*  work with it. This is especially  true if your home has been on  the market for any length of  time.  As a purchaser, if this is the  home you truly want, don't go  bargain hunting and come in  with too low an offer. For one  thing this only insults the  seller and, once offended, he or  she may refuse to deal with the  offer at all, or worse, it will  ruin any chances you may have  had of getting any concessions.  The number of times this  ploy works compared to the  times it backfires just isn't  worth it. However, if you really  are only bargain hunting, then it  won't matter to you if you buy  this particular house or another  one.  Probably the most sensible  piece of advice we can give you is  to treat the offer as a whole.  Don't get bogged down in a  "price war". Quite often, buyers  and sellers fall inlo this age-old  routine without stopping to  consider the other conditions  which, although not strictly  monetary, affect the value of the  transaction.  Closing   dates   are   also  important to the offer as a  whole. These are not only a  matter of convenience, but also a  financial concern. For example,  if a seller looks at an offer that  doesn't match his desired  closing date, he will then need  to arrange interim financing.  When an offer to purchase is  put on the table, you, as a seller,  should discuss the conditions  with your real estate representative.  Another common condition  buyers request is for repair  work to be done on the home.  Quite often, the cost of such  work is not unreasonable and  should be considered.  This philosophy holds just as  true for oilier areas which pasl  experience show have become  bones of contention. Appliances  are a good example of this.  Before you dig your heels in,  take a look at the classified ads  to see what used appliances are  selling for. If your family has  used them for a few years, their  worth to the purchaser is more  in the way of convenience at not  having to purchase new  appliances immediately.  What is Ihe besl way to  negotiate a successful offer? For  both buyer and seller, a good  rule of thumb is (o keep everything in perspective. Don't give  the small things unnecessary  importance. Especially if it  jeopardizes the purchase of Ihe  home you really want or the  sale you really need to make.  Thousands of dollars of  family savings are involved on  both sides.

"If you're broke and have a  broke mentality,'' warns Peter  Clement, "don't bother coming  to my seminar.  "But if you're just broke at the  moment, and you're willing to  devote energy, time and work  hard to change that, then this  seminar can help you."  Clement is a real estate  investment counsellor, and the  Sechelt Chamber of Commerce  is bringing him to the Sunshine  Coast to offer one of his  seminars.  How is this any different  from the 'Get Rich Quick'  seminars we see offered on TV,  the Coast news asks.  "I'm not a flipper and I don't  encourage that," he explains. "I  don't promote 'Get rich quick.' I  teach people how to get rich  slow."  Further, Clement points out,  he is Canadian bom and raised,  and has lived in B.C. since 1968,  so his information is derived  from the Canadian market.  Peler Clement began his  career as a real estate investor in  a fairly traditional way. In 1978  he decided to buy a second house.  The housing boom hit the next  year and Clement more than  doubled his investment. It was  enough to interest him in the  real estate market.  Since then, he has purchased  over 63 properties, arranged  funding for numerous  mortgages, and counselled many  clients   who   have   in   turn  invested profitably in real  estate.  Clement describes himself as  conservative and practical, and  adds that he's sensitive to small  communities. When counselling  people who are planning to  invest in a small town, ne  advises them to go carefully and  show a respect for the economy  and lifestyle of the area.  The Sunshine Coast is an  excellent place to buy real  estate, he says. It's grown  rapidly in the last two years,  but there's a lot more to come.  Clement predicts a real estate  explosion here in the next five  Tax burden protested  HOUSE CALLS  At Investor,, wc don't keep bankeri  houn. We keep yours.

The llrilisli Columhia and  Yukon Hotels' Association has  called on government to immediately reduce the general hotel  room lax from eight per cent to  six per cent, which will bring it  into line with the general sales  tax charged hy all other segments of lite commercial community.  "There is no justification for  singling out the accommodation  indusiry lo pay this added tax,"  saitl Mr. Swoboda.  The arbitrary nature of the  provincial sales tax system is  more pronounced when considering rates applied to beverage alcohol. Although the general sales lax is six per cent,  beverage alcohol - including  draught heer which up to I9HH  was tax free - is taxed at II) per  cent.  ��� ��� ������    .

The result ol these excessive  taxes is not only reducing lite  number of visitors lo our  province, lint it is causing more  and more liritish Columbians to  shop and vacation in the United  States,"lie said.  Mr. Swoboda submitted a  three-point plan for consideration by the provincial government:  A. Institute taxation parity.  Elimination of the two-tiered  lax system, as it relates to rooms  and beverage alcohol, to create  taxation parity for all industry  sectors iu liritish Columhia.  B. Introduce a wholesale  price for beverage alcohol  sold to hotels for on premise  consumption.  The role played by hoteliers  in the controlled sale and distribution of beverage alcohol for  on-premise consumption justifies tlie application of a wholesale price. Unless government  recognizes the costs incurred by  hoteliers to provide clean, comfortable facilities, new premises  will he targeted solely to "high-  end" markets and existing facilities will gradually erode as there  will rut no incentive to renovate  and update past a minimally acceptable level  C. Consider the disparity between hotels before imposing new or higher rates of  taxation.  Future changes and modification to rales of taxation - and  provincial liquor regulations -  should take into account the  disparity in the hotel sector.  Major urban hotels do not represent the majority of hotel operators in tlie province Input  should be sought liefore any  policy changes - particularly  taxation related - are implemented,  ��*\ North  ^ | Oaks  767 North Rd.,  Gibsons, B.C.

Coast News, September 16,1991  Teen centre helped  Jan Bryant  by Stuart Burnside  The co-ordinator of the  Gibsons Outreach Teen Centre is  becoming more optimistic the  centre will stay alive,  Co-ordinator Jan Bryant lold  the Coast News she has four  new volunteers and the verbal  support of the community.  About a week ago the lack of  volunteer help was threatening  to close the centie by December.  In addition to the new help,  (iibsons Council has set aside  space at Brothers I'ark for the  triple wide trailer Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper donated to the  organization.  "It's not our preferred location."  coordinator Jan Bryant said of  Ihe Brothers Park site, "hut we  can work with it." The previous  Gibsons council had indicated  the trailer could be set up behind  the curling rink but the present  council feels there are additional  use for that area.  Gibsons RCMP are in favour  of the Brothers Park location  saying it would be easier for  them to maintain a regular patrol  of the area.  Bry nit said a volunteer  contractor had been found to  move the trailer to its new  home, and added that any  volunteers willing to spend a  couple of afternoons near the end  of the month to make the 'triple  wide' ready for use would be  greatly appreciated.

Not only did the grads' marks  place them in the top levels for  the province, but a much higher  percentage of local students  wrote the difficult exams.  Geoff Kenyon, new principal  at Chatelech, called the results  "phenomenal". In his report to  Trustees at last week's School  Board meeting he quoted some  interesting statistics.  "Thirty two per cent of the  graduates (at Chatelech) wrote  two or more provincial  scholarship exams," he said. "Six  point six per cent (five  students) won scholarships. The  marks were so close that five or  six more students came close to  scholarships.  "If you accept the guestimate  that 10 or IS percent of  graduates go on (to higher  education) and half of those earn  advanced degrees, this number of  students equals that figure. I  can't imagine another secondary  school in the province doing  better than that. It's amazing."  Martyn Wilson, principal at  Elphinstone, said the results at  his school were equally  impressive, with three students  winning scholarships.  "These results are really an  indication of not just the  quality of students, but also the  kind of teachers in the secondary  schools," he said, commenting  on the hours and hours of extra  time put in by both students and  teachers in preparation for the  exams.  District Superintendent  Clifford Smith added that in his  experience in several other  school districts, he had never  before seen such a huge interest  in academic study and  congratulated both schools for  "cultivating a climate where  that kind of effort is being  shown.  "I don't want to be mistaken  as promoting academics at the  cost of other parts of the  school," he continued. "But 1  think you'll And in both schools  the excellence which is  experienced in the academic  classes brushes off on all other  areas of the school, and all  students feel good about the  achievements of their school and  are motivated to do well in  their own areas."
