Jod Johnstone photo  Mountain clips  LRUP's wings  by Cathrine Fuller  While the public digests the  stilt unravelling account of the  wheeling and dealing that went  into the sale of Fantasy  Gardens, the Sunshine Coast is  reported to have been one of the  side dishes of the investment  smorgasborg offered to  billionaire Tan Yu.  Last week's revelations by  Tan Yu's agent Faye Leung, indicated that then Premier Bill  Vander Zalm brought the  Taiwanese tycoon on a yachting  service would be run by the  private or public sector.  Faye Leung's allegations have  raised more questions about the  hidden agenda behind the proposed ferry service and last  Thursday Liberal leader Gordon Wilson called a press conference to speak to the issue.  Wilson sent on province-wide  television demanding "...a full  and public inquiry" into the affair.  "I'm asking for a full  disclosure of the events surrounding the government ac-  by Rose Nicholson  An announcement by District  Forester Barry Mountain of  restrictions that would drastically curb the activities of the  E! Tetrahedron   Local   Resource  Use Plan (LRUP) committee  brought shocked and angry  response from the 30 or more  members present at last week's  meeting.  Mountain told the members  that the LRUP had become too  large and diverse to be dealt  with in a single plan and the  working group had become too  unwieldy.  He said that the boundary of  the study area of the Tetrahedron LRUP would be  redefined to focus on the Chapman Creek bowl (an area  roughly one tenth of that decided on by the committee.), with  emphasis on the study of timber  harvesting and forest recreation.  He went on to say that the  Chapman and Gray Creek  drainage area would be studied  through the Integrated Watershed Management Plan  (IWMP); the Elphinstone slope  through the Elphinstone LRUP;  and the Mount Richardson area  through an LRUP that would  be set up some time in the future  when resources become available.  Other areas such as Salmon  Inlet, Angus Creek, Dakota  Creek and the drainage system  of Rainy River and McNair  Creek would be dealt with  through regular Forest Service  planning processes.  He added that the working  membership would be cut considerably and he would be calling for "statements of interest  from those who feel they have a  vested interest in the Chapman  Bowl.  "it will be from these vested  interest groups that a planning  team would be struck. The  District Manager will decide  which groups have real vested  interests and when two or more  groups have the same or similar  interests a single representative  will be permitted on the planning team. Once a draft plan  has been prepared, it will be  presented to the general public  for review and comment."  There were varied expressions  of dismay and anger at Mountain's announcement. "This is  what we did six montsh ago,"  said Hugh McNab, commenting  on the plans to revise the  membership. "You're circumventing all the work we've done  and taking us back to square  one."  SCRD Director Jeremy Frith  walked out of the meeting  declaring that he was no longer  willing to waste his time because  he didn't think "anything else  was going to be done."  George Smith of the Tetrahedron Alliance said he found it  "extremely offensive"  that  Mountain should have so  severely restricted the area of  study in light of the decision  .reached by the group av ���  whole.  "The main thrust of this  group was to discuss the  Tetrahedron Plateau," added  Harry Almond.  "This may be a cumbersome  group," commented 1WA  representative Murray  Cantelon, "but we're starting to  talk to each other and we  are starting to make progress.  "When I see bridges blown  up and people with spray  bombs painting logs, that indicates frustration. It would be  a mistake to short circuit this  group and not give people the  forum we have here to discuss it  and start to understand the  complexities.  "People are going to say 'we  were right all along,...they (the  Forest Service) didn't want to  listen to us anyway'."  Mountain, explaining that he  had to attend a meeting with  Forestry officials in Vancouver,  left the meeting. A lengthy  discussion ensued on possible  alternatives for the group.  Harry Almond suggested that  the present group continue as an  independent entity that would  bring recommendations to the  Regional District.

According to Leung, Vander Zalm  told Tan Yu he should invest in  property up here because there  would be a fast ferry service  linking the area to downtown  Vancouver in the near future,  sending real estate values soaring.  It wasn't until September 4,  1990, however, that Rita  Johnston, Transportation  Minister of the day, announced  that the province was "considering" a fast ferry service to  the Sunshine Coast and Bowen  Island and invited proposals  from the private sector.  As recently as January, 1991,  MLA Harold Long was stating  publicly that no decision had  been made as to whether the  GORDON  WILSON  tions taken around the fast ferry  service," he told the Coast  News. "If that has to be in the  form of a public inquiry then I  think we have to do that."  Wilson cited four aspects of  the issue that need to be addressed, beginning with the  Sandwell High Speed Passenger  Ferry Feasability Study which  was released in June, 1990.  "Why did BC Transit and  BC Ferries pay for the Sandwell  study and whose idea initiated  the study?" he asked. "If it  wasn't going to be a public sector exercise, why did the people  pay for the study?"  When the province invited  private sector proposals, five  companies responded and  Island Development Group (of  Victoria) was awarded the con-  Whale watchers delight  Some 16 orcas showed up in Porpoise Bay 10 days ago,  providing residents of the Coast with a nature lover's field  day. People of all ages, armed with sophisticated cameras and  high-powered binoculars, sought choice vantage points near  the water, and many dug in for what would prove to be a long  time between whales. Employees of one photography store  told the Coast News that excited patrons were "running in  and out like crazy", dropping off exposed film for processing  and scooping up fresh supplies.  Sechelt Mayor Nancy MacLarty observed the winks from  her home above Porpoise Bay and, becoming concerned by  the number of boats which were "buzzing" the whales, and  by the fact that the creatures had stayed around for so long,  contacted the Vancouver Aquarium.  "I volte to a mammalogist named John Ford," MacLarty  said. "He told me these whales are Pod 'J', and that they  usually hang out south of Victoria in the San Joan Ulands.  He said be couldn't understand why they're here���or why  they've stayed so long."  Last Wednesday evening the orcas apparently swam back  to the Skookumchuk and, while they could have paesed  through, turned around and came back to Porpoise Bay.  Whale behaviour which MacLarty perceived as "playful"  struck Ford as being disoriented or disturbed.  Boaters are advised to cut their engines wd dear of the  area the whales happen to be ia and drift, to avoid rJitfnrbiag  or otherwise interfering with Ike  ' right to privacy.  Killer Whales  leywHwaditken  tract. Wilson has asked by what  criteria were the proposals  evaluated, why they were not  open for public review, and why  Island Development Corp. was  awarded the contract.  In an attempt to answer some  of these questions, the Coast  News contacted the Ministry of  Transportation and Highways  but was informed that the information was not available to the  public. Spokesman David Baker  stated that the province entered  into an agreement with Stewart  Vinnels, president of Island  Development Group, that the  province would not compete on  the same route. Further, the  company would have the service  in place and operational by a  specific date. He would not,  however, disclose the date and  calls to Vinnel's office received  no reply.  Vinnels previously ran a ferry  service between Seattle and Victoria under a company named  Island Jetfoil, which went into  receivership in 1985 owing Boeing Company of Seattle $28  million.  Wilson also wants to know  the government's long range  plans for marine transportation  to the Coast.  "Is this, in fact, step one in  development of a private ferry  service to run in direct competition with the BC Ferry Corporation," he asked. "If that's  so, then I think the government  owes it to the province to say  that's what they're doing."  Finally, Wilson asked how  this service was tied into real  estate development.  During his interview with the  Coast News, Wilson pointed to  several inconsistencies in the implementation of the service.  They appear to go beyond simple bad business judgement and  would indicate he suggested,  that the service itself is not expected to be financially feasible.  The Sandwell study indicates  that a fast ferry service would  be feasible to the Sunshine  Coast and Bowen Island only if  the average passenger load per  day was over 1370 people paying between $17 and $22. Vinnels recently announced the service would cost passengers  $7.50 per trip.  In a section of the Sandwell  report acknowledging the help  of participants in the study,  names included Cancut  Catamarans Inc. and Dr. S.  Vinnels, as well as experts and  consultants from all over the  province and a Mr. Edward  Young of Hong Kong. None of  the companies or individuals  listed are from the Sunshine or  Bowen Island.  Inquiries made late last week  indicate that Island Development has not yet been able to  complete the purchase of Hyak  Marina in Gibsons as a terminal  site.  Gibsons Council recently  voted to request provincial  assistance to pay for the infrastructure which will be  necessary to accommodate the  increased tranffic in Lower Gibsons.  Council has notified Vinnels  company that they would entertain an application for the  necessary rezoning of the property, should Island Development assume ownership, planner Rob Buchan told the Coast  News. Should they refuse it, the  fast ferry company would have  to find another location for the  necessary facilities. Coast News, May 6,1991  FEEDBACK  What is the best thing and the worst, about being a mother?  Moira Jenkins, Account  Manager for the Royal Bank  (Sechelt), has been with Ihe  company for 20 years. Nine  years ago she married ex-  fisherman Dave Jenkins (who,  she says, is now a "Mister  Mom"), and Ihey began a fami-  MOIRA JENKINS  Iy three years later. Their son,  Owen, is six, and Iheir twin girls  Sarah and Megan are 3';.  The Coast News caught up  wilh Ihis veteran banker before  her day was in full swing.  "The best thing aboul being a  mother is Ihe joy your kids give  you day after day", she said  without pause for thought. "Il's  Ihe variety, loo ��� something  different all Ihe time!"  "Not being able lo spend  enough lime with my kids is the  worst aspect aboul bring a  mother for me", Moira said,  adding wilh a chuckle "Of  course, they're young yet!"  Moira Jenkins also mentioned lhal "I don'l know If  Mother's Day should be a  'special day' ��� il's so cummer-  rili/ed. Grandparents Day  would he a heller idea."  Florence Clayton, M year old  matriarch of Sechelt's Clayton  dan, lives alone in a magnificent   waterfront   selling  just  FLORENCE CLAYTON  north of Ihe town she and her  lale husband moved lo back in  1926. Ihe cottage she calls  home is the very same one  which originally stood where  Trail Bay Sports now stands.  "When we bought this properly", Florence recalls, "we loved  Ihe house so much we just moved il here. And we didn't lose a  single night's sleep in it, either!"  "The greatest thing about being a mother is jusl the fact lhal  you've gol kids ��� lhal and Ihe  difference Ihey make in your  life." The white-haired oc-  lagenerian tried lo tempt a gull  wilh a crust of bread, bul the  bird proved leery of the media.  "I guess children make you  human", Florence mused.  "The worst Ihing aboul being  a mother? Probably the feeling  lhal I haven't done enough."  Allyson Pearson arrived al  Ihe Coasl News offices wilh  Ihree year old katrina Smith in  low. Allyson and husband  Rocky (a fish plant worker)  have been married for ciw to  eight years ('The scan part is  lhal we've been together for  ALLYSON PEARSON  16!". says Allyson). They have  one natural child, seven year oM  Lindsay, bul Rocky and  Allyson are also foster parents,  and do "temporary parenting  for children who eventually will  return to their own homes."  "I get a lol of satisfaction oul  of watching Ihe children grow  and mature", responded  Allyson when asked what was  the best thing about being a  mother. "Being able to nurture,  show trust, and give all those  motherly hugs lhal you do  everyday."  As for the worst part of  motherhood? "You're the role  model", Allyson observed  soberly, "You always have lo  he on-guard. Ihe responsibility  is sometimes overwhelming. I  guess that's the worst, bul Il's  just nol thai had."  Madeline - Dixon is a greal  grandmother wilh 15 children.  I 25 grandchildren and four great  : grandchildren. Although some  ; of her older children went lo Ihe  residential school in Sechelt for  I a lime, she and her husband  decided il was too hard to be  separated from Ihe youngsters  i and look Ihem back lo Deserted  Bay, where a school was sel up  and run oul of Ihe pool room al  Ihe logging camp where they lived.  As well as her own children  Madeline mothered II related  offspring. The best part of being a mother?....  "...was raising all those kids.  We had a lol of fun."  The worst part was, "Work-  / ing all the time to keep up. If  ;. my husband wasn't logging, he  f was fishing or culling firewood.  \ And I was working right along  wilh him."  Bul Ihe love and strong fami-  MADELINE DIXON  Iy connections were worth il.  "You have lo have a lot of patience, understanding and  love," she explains. "I always  treated Ihem all equal."  IM Paul has Iwo children,  now 16 and 20. For most of the  lime Ihey were growing up she  chose lo remain al home,  although occasionally she worked as a hairdresser.  "Right now, I would say the  best Ihing is realizing lhat I buill  a good relationship with Ihem.  There's a lol of honesty and a  lot of sharing and we're very  open wilh one another.  "I made a big committment  Ihree years ago and decided in  order to better my life and be a  belter a mother, I could clean  up my acl and learn more aboul  myself. I did Ihis by attending a  drug and alcohol treatment centre."  Although she didn't have a  serious problem, Del says she  felt what she learned in Ihe six  week program created a broader  awareness in her role as a  mother. "We've discovered so  much about one another in the  last three years!"  "I always tried lo pass on Ihe  DEL PAUL  grandmothers' teachings lo my  kids. 'Teach your children lo  respecl themselves, to respect  others and in doing so, in Ihe  whole process you create love.'  "Al this stage lhat I'm in, Ihe  worst Ihing, Ihe hardest Ihing, is  lo lei go, lo allow my children  to slep forward and lake Iheir  roles as individuals. I always  want to run ahead and clear  their path."  Fishermen speak out  by Rose Nicholson  Commercial fishermen on the  Sunshine Coast last week had  an opportunity to express their  views on recent federal policies  that would see major changes in  the industry by the year 2000.  Organized by several  fishermen's associations and  union groups, the Cruickshank  Commission will be holding  hearings in 21 BC communities,  including Gibsons and Madeira  Park.  Don Cruickshank has been in  the fishing industry since 19S4.  In 1966, in conjunction with  Seafoods Products, he started a  cannery in Port Hardy. He later  become owner-manager of the  plant and finally sold the  business in 1988. A highly  respected member of the industry, he was a logical choice  to head a commission that  would examine the issues and  problems facing a complex industry.  He told the good sized audience at Madeira Park that at  the close of the hearings he will  be preparing recommendations  that will be presented to the  Department of Fisheries and  Oceans (DFO).  Cruickshank, who is  donating his time to the project  so that he is not perceived as a  A NUTSHELL  S. Nutter  Nothing really against  hockey, mind you, but I must  confess that I get a real lift with  the beginning of the baseball  season. There is certainly  something about baseball, and  one doesn't have to go into conniptions of whimsey, as W.  Kinsella has done, to accent the  abiding qualities of this game.  Basically of course it is the  simplest thing. Someone throws  private consultant representing  any special interest group, has  also insisted there be no interference from the sponsoring  organizations.  The new federal policy, 'Vision 2000', calls for drastic cuts  in funding for administration of  Ihe Pacific fishery, wilh total  costs being recovered by increased licensing fees by the  year 2010. The commercial  fishing fleet is lo be reduced,  and al the same time sport  fishing will be encouraged with  the emphasis on packaging to  encourage private investment.  Funding for the sports fishery  will be temporarily increased.  Other changes proposed for  the commercial fleet are: area  licensing thai would restrict  boats to fishing in a specific  area; single gear licensing that  would prohibit the current practice of combination which use  both trolling and net gear, and a  quota system.  There has been considerable  opposition throughout Ihe industry to 'Vision 2000'.  Although the government is  looking for public input into  licensing policy, ihere is concern  among fishermen lhat changes  are being implemented in spite  of the opposition.  "I think Ihey think we're jusl  a nuisance and wish we'd go  away and lei them do their  thing,"   commented   Cruick-  a ball, someone tries lo hit it  with a bal or club, someone  tries to catch it. When I was a  lad in the South of England  there was a game with these  basics, played usually on  beaches, called 'rounders', and  you take the average limey to  this day and he will scoff at  baseball saying it is simply  rounders.  Not so chaps. But then you  take the average Yank and he  will scoff likewise at the British  game cricket, pointing to their  tea breaks, and their flannels  and their funny little hats, and  the sedate way in which everything seems to be conducted.  An archaic, sissy sort of game is  the general concensus.  Cricket of course is a game in  which someone throws a ball,  someone tries to hit it with a  bat, and someone tries to catch  it. All the same, as far as that  goes with both games, but then  (as with almost everything else)  they do diverge. Cricket man-  shank. "We're particularly concerned about this approach."  At the local hearings there  was general agreement that  changes were necessary, bul less  agreement on what the changes  should be. Many perceptive  presentations were submitted as  fishermen wrestled with the problems of preserving their highly  valued independent life style in  the face of a rapidly dwindling  resource.  The idea of a quota system  was unpopular with most  speakers who considered it a  failure where it is in effect on  the East Coast and New Zealand. There were fears that  because quotas could be bought  and sold, the independence of  individual fishermen would be  losl as quotas were concentrated  in the hands of bigger companies.  The complex question of  licensing came up for considerable discussion. Over 20  different types of licenses, with  costs ranging from around $10  lo over $1500 mean lhat most  fishermen, to keep their operations viable, need more than  one license. With the proposed  limitation of licenses, many fear  they will be forced out of Ihe industry.  Area limitation was given  tentative approval by a few who  saw it as a way to spread the  fleet over Ihe whole coasl and  avoid the present situation  where large numbers of boats  tend to gather in one spot.  The fundamental question of  reduced stocks resulting from  decades of over-fishing, with  ever more efficient gear, came  in for considerable discussion.  Some reluctantly admitted that  reduction of the size of the fleet  as advocated by DFO was pari  of the solution, but most saw increased salmon enhancement  programs as a critical necessity.  The highly successful  enhancement program in  Alaska which has resulted in  huge catches for Alaskan  fishermen in recent years was  put forward as a goal that could  be achieved by BC. With DFO  proposing lo cut funding programs for enhancement, it was  suggested lhat a royalty payment, possibly one per cent, be  levied on the value of fish sold.  This money could then be used for a comprehensive  enhancement program that  would in turn provide alternative employment for  fishermen.  Cruickshank says he is looking for ideas and solutions and  he is convinced thai Ihere is a  way to turn the industry  wound. If the hearings on the  sunshine Coast are any indica-  ion of whal will happen in the  .est of BC, he will find whal he  is looking for.  Michelle and Kolunil Martel  have recently moved inlo a  townhouse ut Secret Cove which  affords them Ihe space needed  for their growing family. Married lo freelance woodsman and  artisan Roland for a year,  Michelle gave birth lo daughter  Cassandra III monlhs ago, The  Muriels are expelling Iheir second child some lime in July.  "The best Ihing about being u  mother is jusl watching Cassandra grow", said Michelle, adding "Seeing things new uguin  through her is great, loo."  Roland grinned and nodded  his head when Michelle observed lhat the worst aspect of  motherhood was "nol being  able lo sleep in! Nol having  your own lime. Yon can't go  and have a long, hot bath unless  you can sweelalk your husband  into walching her."  Into the summer  with  bat and ball  ages somehow to be quite a different game, and baseball certainly does its part to widen the  difference.  Nowadays the world, if you  just block out politics, religion  etc., can be largely divided into  people who play cricket and  people who play baseball. In  very few places do they play  both. In the Caribbean, they  do but almost always on different islands. In the middle of  Borneo, according to traveller's  reports, they play a game which  is part cricket (from the Aussies  in WW II), part baseball (from  the G.I.'s) and part headhunting (the native sport). But  generally speaking in the world  it is one or the other. China of  course plays ping-pong, in  Khazakstan they do things on  horses with spears, and in other  parts they have not got much  beyond dice, but a sizeable part  of the globe is either playing  cricket or baseball.  How come these two games,  so simply similar in their beginnings, have diverged in this  culturally   180 degree  way?  Fisherman Billy Griffith addresses the Cruikshank Enquiry.  Rose Mchohon pholo  Baseball wc know and iiavc  happily at hand front now into  the fall. Cricket wc really don't  know much about.  Feelings can run high in  cricket as in baseball. There was  a time lor example when Australia threatened to break off  diplomatic relations witli the  Mother Country over a cricket  match, and they were serious.  The game, one of those matches  that go for five or six days, was  being played in Australia. The  English side had brought in a  fearsome Yorkshireman called  Larwood lo bowl (which is lo  say pitch).  The ball, in cricket, compared (o a baseball, is more Ihe  size of a cannonball. Larwood,  in ihe most ungentlcmanly way,  was hurling ihis thing straight at  the batsman rather than at the  wicket (or base). It was Ihe time  of the beginning of the zoomcr  lens, and cameramen were  zooming in and out, and the  sight of the terrible Larwood  thundering down the pitch was  on everyone's screens. The  game had lo be circled by  mounted police, with dogs.  Both games have grown up  masses of stories and legends,  and statistics; and huge following of studious folk whose  greatest pride is in knowing it  all. There are millions of people  who would scorn to know anything about the Wars of the  Roses, but who would be  humiliated not to know the  names of the pitchers in the last  game between the Yankees and  the Cubs in 1933. Or, on the  other side of the pond, how  many runs Hobbs made, not  out, in the same year.  Someone throws a ball,  someone hits it with a bat Or  club, someone tries to catch it.  If we can ring in this many  vigorous, and intricate, and  challenging, and entertaining,  and universally absorbing variations on this simple theme, well,  what cannot we do?

Barry Mountain of the BC MlnlstryoT Forests ad-  dresses last week's LRUP meeting In Wilson  Creek. ���*�����" NkkobiM pholo  Mountain clips wings  Continued from page I  After a greal deal of discussion it was ultimately agreed to  modify this concept somewhat  and continue with Ihe amended  version of the LRUP as outlined  by Mountain.  A motion was passed to supply the District Forester with an  amended map and a list of  recommended members, and  lhat the LRUP continue lo  operate under the original terms  set out by Foresty lhat "during  the planning process leading up  to the creation of LRUP, land  uses will be regulated and administered so that no land use  options and decision would be  preempted in the Tetrahedron  and Mount Richardson area."  Ken Sneddon, owner of a  logging business, in very strong  terms, recommended that  LRUP committee members let  Forestry know of their dissatisfaction with "the way this  was done."  Forest Week on Coast  National Forest Week is  celebrated across Canada each  year during the second week of  May. A press release from the  BC Forestry Association states,  "You could say the purpose of  National Forest Week is to encourage Canadians to 'see the  forest for the trees'.  "To be celebrated this year  from May 5 to 10, National  Forest Week has ils roots in the  ecological awareness that began  in the I920's. The special week  promotes the vital importance  of forests to virtually all Canadians. Il promotes not only  their appreciation, but also their  participation in the careful  management of Canada's forests for the immediate and extended future."  On the Sunshine Coast participants in the celebrations include: BC Forest Association,  Canadian Women in Timber,  Canfor, Fleetwood Forest Pro  ducts, Interfor, Integrated Use  Coalition, IWA, Junior Forest  Wardens, Ministry of Forests,  SCRD, Terminal Forest Products, Weldwood and Witherby  Tree Farm. Forest Watch, a  coalition of environmental  groups and individuals concerned with Forestry, was not invited to participate.  Locally, activities will commence with an open house at  Rockwood Lodge displaying the  five year logging plans for the  Sunshine Coast. During the  week local schools will participate in forestry tours, and on  May 7 at 6:30 pm there will be a  Junior Warden tree planting  ceremony at Hackett Park.  On the weekend of May 10  there will be a forestry display at  Trail Bay Mall which will include forestry practices, tree  planting and a silent auction on  seven pick-up loads of  firewood.  FROM THE HIP  J.M. Sherman  Although one greeting card  company would have us believe  that Mother's Day traces back,  in some obscure fashion, to  Cybele, Mother of all the Greek  Gods, the truth is more prosaic,  much more instructive. It is a  tale of one woman's devotion to  ���some might say obsession  with���the memory of her dead  mother, in combination with  the exploitational zeal of commerce and mass advertising.  A Philadelphia school  teacher, one Anna Jarvis lo be  specific, apparently wanted to  recognize the "selflessness and  love" of her late mama, who  departed this plane in 1905. Anna went on a letter writing jag,  campaigning for the establishment of a day set aside to  honour mothers. The fact that  none of the mothers who might  be celebrated could so much as  vote at that time struck no one,  it would seem, as the least bit  ironic.  Regardless, Anna Jarvis  persevered. She wrote to politicians and religious leaders, a  shrewd move considering how  people of these persuasions  jump on���ahem��� "motherhood issues" (safe, sentimental,  vote-getting) like sly dogs on a  self-promoting bone.  Well, eventually, with the  vigorous lobbying efforts of  greeting card manufacturers  and various and sundry merchants (to say nothing of those  pesky politicians), President  Woodrow Wilson was induced  to proclaim, on May 8,1914, an  official Mother's Day. He called it "a public expression of  our love and reverence." Then  he went back to a man's work,  preparing for World War 1,  slated to begin that summer.  Mother's Day quickly turned  out to be a veritable mother's  lode, one which was���and still  ATTENTION  Residents of the Town of Gibsons  and the Sunshine Coast Regional District  Public Meeting  regarding  GIBSONS PARK PLAZA  GTC Holdings Ltd., the owner of Gibsons Park Plaza,  wishes to invite your attendance and support of our exciting  new shopping centre coming in October 1991  Why: Gibsons Park Plaza will bring savaral benefits to all  Sunshine Coast Residents:  Over 200 new permanent jobs will be created for local residents  Over 45,000 man hours of new construction work over six months  New stores, facilities and a department store not yet available on the Coast.

Today, sociologists and  psychologists purse their intellects, stroke their sheepskins,  and ponderously theorize that a  massive sea of unconscious (and  all-too-naslily conscious) guilt  has bcv.it largely responsible for  the success of a venture inspired  by Anna Jarvis who, incidentally, never became a mother  herself.  Mother's Day, as an institution, rivals St. Valentine's Day  and, as such, one runs a certain  risk criticizing or even analyzing  its rationale or downside. Many  of us have longstanding,  unresolved conflicts with the  woman who brought us into  this world, some of us finding it  difficult to "celebrate"  Mother's Day without feeling  like abject liars and hypocrites.  As a result, many Mother's Day  observances are riddled with  barely-suppressed resentments  and overt phoniness.  And what about those  mothers who are not celebrated  ���or even remembered���by  their offspring? Some of them,  if lucky, might receive a card  wishing them a Happy Mother's  Day "from your darling husband" or even, heavens lo Betsy, a card "from your darling  sister." I understand that cards  from pets, bosses, cousins, and  "your loving mother" are  available lo the diligent shopper.  It is supremely ironic that in  our North American culture  where all manner of violence  against women is both institutionalized and pandemic,  Mother's Day should be such a  big deal. Unless, of course, it  serves as an unspoken, collective expression of atonement,  lhat one day in 365 when com  plex hostilities are suspended  and "mother love" transcends  all.  Better that one should  celebrate mom���or anyone for  that matter���spontaneously,  when one's present feelings so  prompt. Manufactured or  trumped up "special days",  such as Mother's Day, Father's  Day and, yes, even St. Valen  tine's Day, came into being to  separate as many of us as possible from as much coin as possible.  Ultimately it all comes down  to love, regardless of which  observance looms on the near  horizon. Love and right action,  leading from love, can render  all artificial, commercially-  concocted (or commercially co-  opted) celebrations such as  Mother's Day if not null and  void, then at least far less  capable of eliciting knee-jerk  responses from so many of us.  (Have a great day, mom. The  card's in the mail and I'll call  you Sunday���when the rates go  down.)

Jan Michael Sherman, Editor  LRUP deserved  better fate  Last week, in what might well come to be known as the  Tetrahedron Massacre, Forestry official Barry Mountain  wielded an axe like a blunt instrument and, before the  chips settled, had lain waste to both a needed process and a  diverse group of citizens dedicated to making that process  work.  By unilaterally decimating the Tetrahedron LRUP  (Local Resource Use Plan Committee), and doing so in an  arrogant and high-handed manner, Mountain made it  clear that when things don't go the way he and his faceless  masters in the Forestry Ministry determine they should,  throw out the baby with the bath water.  In a move which had (at the very least) the tacit approval (and possible prior knowledge) of some members of  the forest industry, Mountain told LRUP's meeting last  week that he was halving the committee, restricting the  study area, and would himself appoint any new participants. With the cold-blooded insouciance of a Las  Vegas blackjack dealer, Barry Mountain threw out the old  deck and as much as said the new deck would be marked  and easier to manipulate.  The ultimate loser in this naked abuse of power will undoubtedly be the Tetrahedron itself. Thirty-five representatives of user groups and industry applied themselves  diligently, if at times a bit chaotically, to the thorny,  almost Solomonic problem of reconciling logging, environmental, and recreational claims to the disputed area.  In what amonted to no small feat given the make-up  and size of the LRUP committee, consensus was reached  on the actual area to be studied and, at the time of Mountain's massacre, were about to ratify the terms of  reference. Mr. Mountain's move effectively wiped out six  months' work, which we must assume was precisely his intention.  What this shocking turn of events means in terms of the  future of the Tetrahedron is virtually anybody's guess.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank each  and every member of the LRUP committee for their  public-spirited dedication to a task which still remains to  be accomplished. This is no time for recrimination, but for  a vigorous, renewed effort lo keep from rendering unto  Caesar that which is not Caesar's, regardless what  Emperor Richmond and his legions might think to the  contrary.  Socreds reach  deep for  oldest ploy  With decades of smear tactic political tradition to draw  on, the Socreds are once again dragging the spectre of the  NDP bogeyman���the "Socialist Horde"���out of their bag  of sleazy and cynical tricks.  This time it was Finance Minister Mel Couvelier who,  with silken tongue and innuendo, evoked the bogeyman  on behalf of the demoralized and desperate Socreds. By  warning that Ontario Premier Bob Rae's deficit budget  might bode ill for "Canadian unity", Couvelier appeared  statesmanlike and above the battle. But by claiming that  Ontario's NDP government intends to borrow not only in  order to sustain social programs (but, Couvelier suggested,  even add new ones), he is plainly seeking to trip alarms  amongst the BC electorate.  The implication that policies put forward or implemented by one NDP government would be adopted by  all, evokes the image of a monolithic NDP. This is a  pivotal part of the Socreds' overall scare package. Suggesting that whither goeth Bob Rae's Ontario there follows  ���ipso facto���Mike Harcourt's British Columbia is  jackboot sophistry of the first order.  Deficit spending in times of recession and massive  economic dislocation is hardly radical, and often efficacious. Borrowing money to keep the disadvantaged,  among others, from any further privation, instead of paying lip service to the new God of the Deficit, makes a lot of  sense to some. After all, if Canadian corporation were  made to cough up taxes they already owe���or should by all  rights be paying���there would be no deficit to genuflect to.  Grab a flashlight, folks,  we're going to peer around  together in one of democracy's  coal cellars - BC politics.  In (he hope of shedding a ray  of light on our little foray, allow  me a brief historical digression.  I guess the very first election  that I can truly remember was  the general election in Britain in  1951. It was the election in  which the old warhorse Winston  Churchill became, again, Prime  Minister. The defeat of the  heroic Winnie in the election of  1945 immediately after the war  stunned the world. Clement  Atlee and his Labour party ruled for about six years and then  my memory kicks in.  Through the fifties it was  Churchill and Harold Mac-  millan at the head of the Tories;  in the 1960's Harold Wilson was  the Labour Party Prime  Minister followed by James  Callagahn, also Labour. Then it  becomes in the seventies Ted  Healh followed by Margaret  Thatcher as the Conservatives  again held sway.  Talk about your polarization!  It was the working man against  the landed gentry, the trade  unions against encrusted  privilege. No quarter asked or  given.  But through all that, it would  appear, there was an important  principle of democracy that was  never lost sight of. Every once  in a while you 'have to throw  the rascals out' to keep them  from stealing the kingdom  poor. Get a new lot in, let them  run things for a while, then  throw those rascals out in turn.  Prolonged control of the  levers of power in the hands of  any one group invites abuse and  should be discouraged. It is a  fundamental principle of  democracy.  Ah, but not here, folks. We  are the Flatlanders of democracy. If we sail left into the  Democracy's  coal cellar  MUSINGS  John Burnside  NDP, why we will sail clean  off the edge of the world and all  will be lost. Back in 1951 when  Churchchill was regaining top  spot in Britain from Clement  Atlee, Wacky Bennett was put-  ting together this coalition of  Christian capitalists to keep the  godless Socialists at bay in BC.  Through all the changes back  and forth from Tory to Labour  in the mother of parliaments,  here on the Pacific Rim the  same forces have held control  by preaching the end of the  known economic world if they,  the nalural rulers were not  returned. For the purposes here  we need not concern ourselves  with the hiccup that was Dave  Barrett's government 1972-75,  except perhaps to say that the  world did not come to an end  during those years.  Now, folks, we are  downstairs and in the cellar,  follow the flashlight's beam and  we will see what we can make  out in all this murk and dust.  Once you've preached  disaster (for a couple of generations) then some strange things  start to happen. You begin to  see yourself as the natural ruling  group and some important  distinctions start lo get blurred.  A political party does  political things to win power:  once in power and in charge of  the people's money it also has lo  do things nol just for its own  good, but for the good of sociely. A party which thinks it is the  one and the only natural governing party beings to equate  what is good for it politically  with whal is good for the province or country it governs.  For years, for example, the  Socred Party has issued the BC  Government News with public  funds. The sheet is designed only to extol the virtues and excellencies of the party at the  public's expense. It is only the  most obvious case of where the  action of seeking power is confused with the action of exercising it; where politicking is confused with governing.  Last week, for example,  mellifluous Mel Couvelier, happily re-instated and apparently  squeaking clean after the  Vander Zalm affair, with  dreams of leadership dancing in  his hand, called a press conference to direct the attention of  the hounds of journalism at the  heinous actions of the NDP in  Ontario. They were running a  budget deficit, the irresponsible  rascals, and didn't that prove  how irresponsible the godless  socialists were.  Not an act of governance on  Convener's part, nor of  courtesy, but purely political in  the best Let's bash the  Socialists and keep the power  traditions of Couvelier's party.  Bul Bill Vander Zalm wants  to fight just about everybody  right now and documents  released by him to the court  where he's challenging the  Hughes Commission which he  set up, reveals that Couvelier  had wind of the Fantasy  Gardens fiasco four months and  more before he resigned. He  took action. He warned Vander  Zalm. That is political action,  not Ihe action of government.  Couvelier and his friends have  been in power so long they no  longer make the distinction. A  governing action would have  been to have the appropriate  body under Ihe Minister of  Finance investigate the alleged  irregularities and then report  back.  Perfectly nalural, if you consistently confuse the responsibilities of governing with the  needs of politicking as the  Socreds do. In any case  Couvelier's pack of hounds,  that he sought to send baying  after the godless and irresponsible Socialists, turned into a wolf  pack on his own heels and a day  after he summoned the media to  his cause he was denouncing  them as a pack of rogues for  questioning his actions.  Well, folks, it's still a most  glorious Spring outside and I've  stood aboul as much of this  gloom and muck as 1 can this  Maytime.  Throw the rascals out, 1 say,  they can no longer tell the difference between what's good  for them and good for the province. Throw them out and as  soon as possible. The world  won't come to an end, I promise you. At least not on that  account.  LETTERS  Gibsons Bus  support urged  Editor:  I recently attended the  SCRD's transportation committee meeting. I went as a regular  user of the Gibsons Bus. Gibsons Bus operations manager,  Diane Schafer, made a presentation at the meeting asking that  the SCRD do what they can to  change BC Transit schedules so  that the mini-bus routes do not  overlap Gibsons Bus routes.  As any regular bus user in the  arna knows, the minibus,  the, jgh subsidized by BC Transit, (a-rovkaS inadequate service  with regUu to meeting the ferries, while the Gibsons Bus provides excellent service in this  regard but is threatened by the  minibus' duplication of their  routes.  Diane made the very sensible  suggestion that, if BC Transit  stops competing with the Gibsons Bus, then mini buses would  be freed up to give better service  further up the Coast, where it is  desperately needed.  During all this, Regional  Director Peggy Connor made a.  very odd remark, the gist of  which seemed to be that  newcomers to the Sunshine  Coast should have to "put up  with what we've put up with all  these years" (i.e. little or no bus  service?). Does Ms Connor  mean that only people who own  cars ought to move to the Sunshine Coast? A very odd idea in  this era of environmental  awareness!  The population on the Coast  is going to expand, whether we  like it or nol. If wc can reduce  car use by providing good  public transit we will all benefit  in terms of cleaner air, less land  for parking lots, less tax money  spent on highways, etc.  Another point about car  ownership. Cars are just not as  affordable as they were 20 years  ago when almost everyone  could manage to buy and maintain a functional vehicle.  Gibsons Council has been  very supportive of Diane's proposals, but support from Gibsons Council is not enough. The  SCRD and BC Transit are the  ones with the power to stop the  absurd duplication of routes.  Bus users should write to them  and let them know how they  feel.  Anne Mile.'  Politicos words  make him sick  Editor:  The Coast News articles on  Earth Day were just great,  especially "Feedback". You  asked the two local mayors and  Regional District chairman,  "How do you feel aboul recycling on Ihe Sunshine Coast?"  Their replies made me sick.  Here are three lop local  politicians saying, "I'm not opposed to recycling," "I support  it 100 per cent," and "It's a  great idea". Three top local  politicians who have the power  and the means to enact a comprehensive, locally based recycling program and presently are  not doing a thing about it.  Showing you care about the  Earth is more than just waving a  Earth day flag or talking  "Green".  Esteban Henry  Inglis House  role urged  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication.  Gibsons Council  Gibsons, BC  Dear Mayor Small and Gibsons  Council:  While doing research on a  local history project, St. Bartholomew's Church, I was impressed once again by the importance of the Inglis house to  our community.  I am writing to request that  the Town of Gibsons consider  buying this fine old house.  I am aware of the needs of  the town to replace worn-out  "infrastructure", and your  economic concerns and  budgetary constraints, but this  house purchase would be an opportunity to show some real  business acumen and discernment by seeing past the immediate needs of the town today, to the potential of this  house to be part of an enhanced  future tourist destination.  If any of you are familiar  with Emily Carr's family home  in Victoria, you could see  similar possibilities with the Inglis house. The Carr home has  been restored, with period furniture installed. Now people  pay to see this historic house.  The Inglis home is truly important in the town's history, by  way of its association with Dr.  Inglis, the early Finnish settlers  here, and J.S. Woodsworth,  M.P.  If only the main floor of this  house was a museum, the other  floors could be leased, or rented  out as office space to cover the  costs of purchase. Also,  evidence shows that these  historic buildings increase in  value as treasured "heritage"  sites.  I know that this particular  council is a hard-working,  talented group, and that there  are so many requests and petitions. But you have the opportunity, with the purchase of the  Inglis house, to be honoured as  a council able to see beyond the  temporal economic issues, to a  vision of what is truly important  in our wonderful little town-  how we respect our history, our  sense of place, and perhaps,  ourselves.  Pat Drope  LRUP process  can work  Editor:  The Ministry of Forests' recent statements before the  Tetrahedron LRUP has proved  disruptive and has had serious  and discouraging repercussions  on this public process,  This process was initiated as a  means of resolving local land  use conflicts which involved  watershed, wilderness, recreation, and forestry in the  Tetrahedron area.  Although the process has  been slow due to the diversity of  the many groups present, a constructive dialogue had  developed.  Despite the MOF decree, our  unanimous reaction to the announcement is to see this process through to completion.  This process can work.

But in order to see what is  happening in this province it is  important to look beyond the  simple equation "industry  equals jobs".  The logging industry in  British Columbia is not about  providing jobs for British Columbians. It is about making  money for the companies. They  do provide jobs but that is not  their priority. If they can get a  better return on their investment  dollar by exporting raw logs  than they can by making value-  added products that would provide more local jobs, then they  will do just that. It is a business.  What is dramatically different aboul this business,  however, is that it is done mostly on public ��� land���our land.  Still, industry treats this land as  if it is theirs to do with as they  please.  When you have work done  on your property, you tell the  contractor how you want the  work to be done, not the other  way around. We have these  same rights on our lands. If  private companies want to log  public forests then they have to  come to an agreement with the  owners of the land���us���on  how any work will be done. The  community has a right to demand the work be done in a sustainable, environmentally sound  manner that keeps jobs in the  community, and to ask the  companies to put in their bids.  Our government has failed  us. It should be provincial  policy that logging companies���as a concession to us  for logging public land���ensure  that every tree cut in the province provides as many jobs as  possible in BC before the final  product is sold or exported.  It should be provincial policy  that community forestry boards  have power in local forests and  that private companies design  their five-year plans in conjunction with these community  boards.  Whether the issue is the use  of herbicides, the fate of the  Tetrahedron, or logging plans  for Mount Elphinstone, the  common denominator is the  need for community forestry;  bottom-up decision making,  where we tell government and  industry what is to be done and  how. Not the other way around.

Sechelt  885-9455       S  Foreshore leases  set 'dangerous  precedent'  Editor's Note: A copy of Ike  foUowtaaf   was   received   for  publication.  Mr. Larry Sorken, Land Officer  An application has been  registered with your department  by the Eastbourne Cottagers  Association for a Licence of Occupation for waterfront property situated on Keats Island and  extending into Collingwood  Channel���this being a body of  water in the Strait of Georgia.  The total area requested  under these five applications  equals 10.4 hectares (more or  less) equaling to 26 acres of  water lease extending in a ribbon effect east along the  shoreline of Keats Island.  The areas covered under  these applications are the only  usable beaches on that side of  the Island.  Should these foreshore leases  be granted, other citizens will be  effectively prevented access by  boal or land lo Ihis recreational  area.  I feel lhat granting these  leases would be setting a  dangerous precedent for other  similar applications.  Usually when an application  for a lease area to anchor a boat  is applied for, it is done on an  individual basis. Those applications are being made by a  registered society requesting  control of a very vast expanse of  beach (approximately one mile)  solely for that society's private  use.  If it is this society's intention  lo create an anchorage area or  float facilities for ils members,  they do not need 26 acres of  water space, nor do they have a  need to control approximately  one mile of beach.  I adamantly request lhat  these applications be denied and  I recommend that they resubmit their application, complete with a plan showing their  anchor spots and/or floats to  your department, and to the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District along with the Island  Trust for input and recommendations.

Don't celebrate  war machines  in Sechelt  Editor:  Congratulations on your excellent editorial comment re the  Celebration Days initiation for  military vessels to visit Sechelt.  The Sunshine Coast Peace  Group shares your concerns  about the effects upon our  children of glamourizing  weapons of war at any time, but  the proposal seems especially inappropriate as we face the consequences of the Gulf War.  We Canadians took part in  this war and have to bear  responsibility for the tragic  plight of the Kurds, the destruction of Iraq and the havoc  wreaked upon our fragile  planet. Can we honourably do  this and take pleasure in the  technology that made it possible?  We too urge the Celebration  Days organizers to recondsider  their decision.  Yours in peace  Alison M.

The population in Gibsons has increased and the traffic along Gower Point has  become greater.  However there is a lack of  sidewalks lo allow night jogger  safely. The area is not known a\  an industrial area and is u long  road thai attracts night joggcts.  The lack "of lighting also  becomes hazardous when buses  pick up students in the winter.  The road is narrow and the  pavement is not in good condilion. The lilies ate faded and  there are inadequate eals-cyes lo  reflect the light lor the cars.  T. Rctif ie  Great service!  Editor:  When visiting friends recently  on the Sunshine Coast, I was  delighted to be able to leave my  car at Horseshoe Bay, walk on  the ferry, and take the excellent,  privately run, Gibsons Bus.  What a great standard of service! It runs frequently and  comprehensively and whenever  I have used it, the drivers have  been friendly and competent.  The people of Gibsons should  take great pride in this private  service which I believe needs lots  of encouragements and extra  passengers if it is to survive.  I believe this is one way in  which the Sunshine Coast is  leading much of the rest of the  province and I hope the Gibsons  Bus becomes an example which  other districts will follow as a  locally initialed, privately funded, friendly and convenient  alternative to using private  transportation.

Jod JohntOM photo  Roberts Creek residents  protest Grauman clearcut  by Rose Nicholson  Close to 100 people came out  on a rainy Sunday afternoon to  register their protest against  plans to clearcut a block between Gough and Clack Creeks  on Grauman Road in Roberts  Creek.  Donna Shugar and Jan Brin-  ton, members of the Concerned  Coast Residents (CCR), told the  gathering that phone calls to  District Forester Barry Mountain asking that selective logging  be considered, rather than clear-  cutting, were apparantly  fruitless.  "Our complaint is with the  Forest Service, not with the con-}!  tractor," they said. "We do nop  want a confrontation, that's  why we called this meeting for a ;.".  Sunday." J;  Apparantly  studies  of the.-*;  area made several years ago-.1-."  were never used. The CCR is.>"  calling for a deferral of logging  until there has been an opportunity for discussion.  "Although we're not scientists,   this   is   our   home,"."  declared Shugar. "We have af f-  right to say what goes on."  "And we're the ones that t  have to live with the results,",  echoed one of the crowd.

Columnist  George Cooper  wins the Pebbles Realty portable TV draw  at last week's  Trade Show in  Gibsons.  Jod Johnstone  GEORGE IN GIBSONSi  by George Cooper, 886-8520  Where else but Victoria can  someone on foot visit, in a day,  a range of sights like museums,  parks, a somnolent harbour,  pubs and eating places, and the  kitschy Eaton Place. Great fun  except for the feet.  The legislative building  massively dominates the harbour scene, quite unperturbed  by the recent clatter within its  walls. Only two protesters on  the grounds. One, an elderly  gentleman seeking by placard  for a Western person fluent in  Mandarin to aid in righting an  injustice; another, with crude  cardboard poster suggested the  PM and Jo Clark get lost. The  protester himself looked a little  lost.  The legislative chamber, torn  apart last fall to allow for the  increase of six seats next election,   is   open   to   view.  On an adjacent street the  horses of the tally-ho and the  cabriolets stand dejected and  oblivious to traffic clatter, their  tails flicking from time to time  above the ordure catchers attached to their harness and  whippletree. Keeps the streets  clean. Now if some form of verbal waste catcher could be  fabricated to attach to MLA's  in the chamber, the public  would be much happier.  Noted: Miniature World is  closed but only to tidy up after a  flood from a broken hydrant.  That display must be as old as  the hotel, the Empress, where it  is situated.  Only tours, I'm sure, can one  visit the Island Brewery to taste  the unpasteurized, unchemic-  alized product. Taste it was, for  the plastic glasses were  miniature in size. But the refills  were unlimited. At the Trade  Fair in Gibsons our own Sunshine Coast Berwers told us  their products are made without  preservatives, too.

GRADUATES  Leah Bennett, who attended  Cedar Grove School and Elphinstone through Grade 10, has  just graduated from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix with  a Bachelor of Science degree.  In her fourth and final year,  Leah won the top award in accounting. She will commence  her Masters in Business Ad:  ministration at SFU this  September.  Leah did her Grades 11 and  12 at University Hill in Vancouver in order to take part in  the Tennis Canada Development program. She continued  tennis at Grand Canyon U and  on graduation this spring was  offered a place in a profesional  tennis circuit. She has declined  this invitation in order to cany  on with her university studies. .  Leanne Smith, who graduated from Elphinstone Secondary School about eight years  ago, was recently elected president of a Vancouver company,  United Reporters.  Leanne's mother, Barb Lynn,  explained that the company,  which is owned and operated by  Leanne and her colleagues, provides court reporter services on  a contract basis to the Vancouver law courts, as well as doing examinations for discovery  for lawyers.  Leanne first became interested in her chosen profession when she took Robin  Heathey's law course at  Elphinstone. A career fair in  Vancouver introduced her to  court reporting, and a two year  course at Langara College completed her training.  GRANTHAMS FAREWELL  At the annual meeting, April  13, of the Granthams Improvement District (water), Dorothy  Cresswell was bid farewell, her  years of faithful service as  secretary-treasurer fondly  remembered by those present.  "She will be hard to  replace," said a Granthams  resident. "Both she and her late  mother, Irene, were associated  with the Improvement District  project since its founding in  1972."  Dorothy and her father move  to Langley this month, and for  their new home the members of  the Improvement District  presented, them with a camellia  bush.  DAVIS BAY NEWSl  by Lauralee Solli, 885-5212  The Pot Luck Supper to help  the Woods celebrate their 50th  Wedding Anniversary was held  on April 28 with 56 friends and  relatives.

Place the soap inside. If there  are only adults in your house  you don't even have to sew the  end together, but if you have  children you should.

Coast News, May 6,1991  ROBERTS CREEKl  by Janice Leighton, 886-3541  Every chair was filled in St.  Aidan's Hall as neighbours,  water license holders and other  interested parties gathered to  discuss the possibility of  developing a pitch V putt golf  course on the corner of Maskel  Road and the Highway. The  meeting, held April 29, was  chaired by Steven Olmstead, accompanied by Jeremy Frith and  Brett McGillivray of the  Regional District, and was for  the purpose of considering  rezoning the five and a half acre  parcel from Rural/Residential  to Public and Institutional. The  rural/residential zone allows for  subdivision into two and a half  acre parcels, raising livestock,  and small home business.  Public and Institutional allows  lor a non-profit camp or commercial outdoor recreational  facility such as the pitch 'n'  putt. The new zoning would include the option of a small  clubhouse.  Most people present voiced  reservations about the proposal,  some finding it workable, some  feeling it totally untenable. The  neighbourhood is a residential  area with Joe Smith Creek running through it. The issue of  herbicide use on water quality  was addressed by one neighbour  who was personally assured by  the owners of the need for only  small amounts of fertilizer once  a year on the greens not fairways, and no need for herbicides or fungicides. Both the  greens and septic field required  for the clubhouse would be well  beyond the required distance  from the creek.  The push for Roberts Creek  to be a pesticide free zone was  stressed by another present who  felt the golf course should be  strictly organic. This might be  an assurance should the property change hands in the future.  The present quality of the water  in Joe Smith Creek was ques  tioned with residents on both  Joe and Maskel Roads requesting access to regional  water.  A number of those present  spoke strongly against any  future liquor license being  granted. Residents of Maskel  Road were concerned about increased traffic and the safety of  their children walking to the bus  stop nearby. Neighbours on  either side had fears of flying  golf balls entering their properties. Generous stands of trees  and a fence arc part of the golf  course plan to contain balls and  create a buffer zone. Increased  noise and bright night lighting  were also considered possible  detriments. It was expressed  that any future use of the site as  a rod and gun club, or moto-  cross track (possible under the  new zoning) would be unacceptable.  Many voiced their respect for  the responsible integrity of the  owners. Some felt a small golf  course would be an attractive,  non-polluting tourist draw with  the possibility of not only entertainment, but also employment  for locals, especially teens.  The chairman made it clear  that certain concerns could be  handled legally in a restrictive  covenant that limits the use of  the property. A covenant,  however, must be proposed by  the owner since it limits present  and future possibilities. A decision will be made in a few  weeks.

This is the  message from the real estate  agent. An accumulation of junk  can be a big obstacle in  marketing a property. If buyers  can't see past piles of  newspapers and rooms crammed with excess furniture, for example, how can they appreciate  the home's fine architectural  detail? As you undertake the de-  junking process, it's important  to think how a prospective  buyer would see your property.  For example, you may be  very enamoured of the sports  trophies that stand on every  level surface in your family  room, the toy bins in your living  room or the portraits done by  the grandchildren.  De-junking your home is  often an arduous and  psychologically painful process.  Those who lived through the  Depression often find it  especially   hard   to   discard  belongings since they recall a  time when old clothes or other  tangibles were greatly needed.  Many feel desolate when they  get rid of their things���because  psychologically their belonging  give them a feeling of protection  from the world.  There are a couple of tips to  help in the organizing of this  task. Concentrate most attention on conspicuous areas of the  house, including the living room  and kitchen. Give yourself a lot  of time for the task���it might  take three months of weekends.  There is a two question list to  help to dispose of "things":  1. Have 1 used this in the last  year? If the answer is yes, keep  it.  2. Does it have any real value to  me? If the answer is no, chuck it  out.  MEETINGS  Don't forget the Executive  Meeting on Tuesday morning at  10 am.

Municipal finance officer /Art  Lew said, at the May I Sechelt  Council meeting, that overall  spending for the district has  been increased for 1991 by six  per cent, but revenues have  dropped some 28 per cent from  1990 levels ��� "in areas excluding taxes."  "The reason for lhal," Lew  told council, "is that, in  previous years there was a  carry-forward of a fairly large  chuck of surplus...much of  which wc won't have this year."  He listed a five year restructuring grant that had expired, and  a $190,000 surplus that had  been used up as examples of  items of income not enjoyed in  the 1991 budget.  Lew said, while taxes are go  ing up in the district, the actual  mill rate on residences,  businesses and industry would  actually go down. He attributed  this to the recent reassessment,  saying properties increased in  value on average, by 56 per  cent. He said because of the  reassessment, the mill rate,  which was 5.4 per cent in 1990,  would actually drop to 4.1 for  the "average $100,000 house,"  but this would still mean an  overall property tax increase of  approximately 20 per cent.  Lew pointed out, however,  that the school district would be  reducing its mill rate, by which  it assess school taxes from 9.05  per cent to 5.8 per cent. This  means, on the "average  $100,000 house," taxes will be  $120, an overall increase of II  per cent. He noted that taxes  would increase by 17.9 per cent  for businesses and 18.6 per cent  for industry.  "We've done a lot of soul  searching," explained Mayor  Nancy MacLarty, "and we're  making cuts where we can...this  is not a fat budget." She said  any major projects not in the  1991 budget ��� like road improvements ��� would have to be  done through referendum.  Vocal opposition to the  budget came from one of the  few Sechelt residents Adrian  Hovestad in the audience.  "How can you raise taxes by 20  per cent when a majority of the  population are pensioners?" he  demanded. "People's incomes  won't be going up 20 per cent."  MacLarty explained, "We  are now paying taxes kept artificially low by other administrations...it's time to bite the  bullet."  Alderman Doug Reid  reminded Hovestad that the  overall increase was only 11 per  cent and that spending had only  increased six per cent.  The by-law approving the  budget was given first and second readings Wednesday night  and third reading Friday morning, with fourth and final  reading scheduled for May 7.  Art Lew said, at the May 3  meeting, he will be putting  together a comprehensive  description of what the taxes  will be used for, including projected expenditures that won't  come under the budget. The information is to be available to  the public before the Town Hall  meeting.  Alderman Art Whistler voiced his agreement with this approach. "1 think the people  need to know where, exactly,  their money is going, including  what's going to come up that's  not included in the budget," he  said, "I want all of the cards on  Ihe table."  After the budget has been  passed there will be a Town Hall  meeting to discuss it at Greene  Court Hall, May 21.

Design panel panned  by Stuart Burnside  SCRD Director Gordon  Wilson is not in favour of an  SCRD design panel. "Is there  another Regional District  anywhere in the province that's  got a design panel?" he wanted  to know.  The question of establishing a  regional design panel was raised  at a May 2 SCRD Planning  Committee meeting by Chairman Brett McGillivray.  McGillivray informed Wilson  he thought the idea was a good  one and that the District of  Sechelt had already begun to  look into the possibility of  establishing one in that  municipality.  The SCRD's Panel would, he  said, be done through  volunteers and would be "advisory only."  "They would provide recommendations   on   commercial  developments and what they  would look like, we (SCRD) can  decide whether or not to act on  that information."  McGillivray evoked response  from Wilson by suggesting the  panel would make suggestions  to the Board on the colour a  commercial development could  be.  "Are you kidding?" exclaimed Wilson, "The Regional  District is going to make decisions on what colour a guy's  building should be?" Wilson  went on to say that, while he felt  there was some merit in the concept of a design panel, he believed that input from local merchants would be necessary.  "Let's do what we ask the  developers to do," said Wilson,  "and consult...! couldn't support something like this without  some consultation with people  in the community who arc going  to be significantly affected by  this."  Wilson said he disagreed with  the concept of making value  judgements on what is acceptable in the way of building  design. He noted that numerous  communities in North America  and Europe had developed  "personalities" and uniqueness  without the benefit of design  panels.  "...those areas didn't have  design panels," he said, "and  the tremendous 'colour' of  those areas is due in a large part  to the amount of diversity that  was allowed to build up in those  areas...over time the communities have decided what fits,  what looks good...by planning  too tightly you prohibit that  kind of diversity to grow and to  blossom."  Director Jeremy Frith  responded to Wilson's remarks  by pointing out that, in the days  when the "colour" Wilson  spoke of evolved into  recognizable communities, it  was because people had limited  building resources and quality  was the main concern.  The board decided to table  the design panel recommendation until it was referred to the  community and input received  from the Chamber of Commerce and those most potentially affected.

More than 300,000 public sector families,  targeted by the Vander Zalm administration,  are waiting. And watching.  IF the Social Credit government has  really changed since the departure of  Bill Vander Zalm as Premier, Bill 82  (the so-called Compensation Fairness  Act) will be repealed during this session of  the Legislature. Bui if this law remains in  force public-employee lamilies will receive  a clear message thai a conscious decision  has been made to continue the confrontation.  Public sector wage  increases are moderate  Wage increase comparisons over the  past ten years show thai average public and  private sector wage increases are almost  identical (less than one percent difference).  Obviously, public sector wage increases are not out of line with the private  sector. And that's why Social Credit Labour  Minister )im Rabbin and many of the province's leading economists say Bill 82's wage  controls are unnecessary.  Bill 82 should be repealed.  Women workers  are hit the hardest  Half of all public employees are  women. Many of these dedicated British  Columbians work with the very old (In  nursing homes), the very young (as child  care workers) and with the sick (In hospitals) and earn low wages. In fact, many  "One man,  appointed by a  disgraced former  i��remier, has been  given dictatorial  powers..."  female public employees' pity cheques arc  below the poverty line.  The Compensation "Fairness" Act will  lock them into their present low-paying  job ghettos.  That's outrageous. Bill 82 should be  repealed.  Bill 82 ignores the people  yon elected in November  Asa result of Bill 82, the school board  and the municipal council you elected last  November cannot conclude a contract with  your community's employees. One man,  appointed by a disgraced former Premier,  has been given dictatorial power to overturn the decisions of the people you elected.  What's more, this heavy-handed  intrusion in local community labour relations comes from a government that sclf-  righteously proclaims its belief in a free  marketplace.  If the Social Credit government means  what it says Bill 82 should be repealed.  BUI 82 threatens the  quality of public services  Public employees across British Columbia are attempting to negotiate collective  agreements without knowing what the  Commissioner will consider "acceptable"  to the government. This nerve-wracking  situation leaves hundreds of thousands of  B.C. families in a position of nervous  apprehension.  Meanwhile, worker morale continues  to fall and public services suffer. Women  workers wonder how much longer they  must wait for pay equity. Important workplace health Improvements are delayed.  And employees focus their day-to-day concern on the uncertainty of their families'  pay cheques.  The Compensation "Fairness" Act  allows one man's whim to determine the  future of more than 300,000 British Columbia families. Meanwhile, public employers  are surrounded by confusion as they try to  determine budget and spending priorities.  Bill 82 is creating chaos in our public  services. We are now seeing costly coun  battles over this undemocratic, unfair law.  Bill 82 is unnecessary and unacceptable. It must be repealed.

BUY THIS SPACE  CALL YOUR AD REP  GIBSONS: 886-2622  SECHELT: 885-3930  CARTER  A century of greatness  by Rose Nicholson  Sculptors of international renown  joined family and friends last  weekend to honour fellow artist  Dudley Carter on the occasion of his  100th birthday.  Invited to the celebration at the  Gibsons home of Carter's daughter  Mavis Vaughan were Elek Imready,  Roy Lewis, George Norris, David  Marhall, Peter Paul Ochs, Enzio Von  Rezori, Bill Reid, Jack Harmon and  several others.  Carter, who was born in New  Westminster, spent much of his early  life in the logging camps of coastal  BC. He became intrigued by native  art, and inspired by the traditional  Haida, Kwakiutl and other native carvings, he gradually evolved his own  unique adaption of the form.  Using a double bitted Caller's axe  and an adze, he hews dramatic figures  from massive chunks of cedar.  Although the native influence is evident in much of his work, particularly  in the way he adapts forms to the  natural shape of the logs, there are  also traces of Mayan and Greek  styles, all evolved into a style that is  uniquely his own.  Sunshine Coast residents are  familiar with examples of his work  that can be seen at the Arts Centre in  Sechelt and the 'big bird' in Gibsons.  But most of his sculptures have found  homes in places like civic centres and  plazas in the US.  Still carving today, at an age when  most men have long since given up an  active physical life, Carter is a rare example of the potential that is possible  for mankind to achieve.  One of Dudley Carter's first projects was  this home (left) he built during the 30's for  his family in the Big Sur area of southern  California. Modelled after a Haida long  house, it was designed in such a way that by  taking away strategic pegs, the whole structure could be dismantled.  From this beginning he evolved the unique style of massive carvings whose flowing  lines adapt to the natural growth patterns of  the huge cedar logs he uses for his medium. 16.  Coast News. May 6,1991  Hitting the  hold: The  Alec Will story  by Peler Trower  The lid blew off on May 17,  triggered by an incident al  Powell River, involving 'hot'  cargo being loaded by a scab  crew. When the resl ol the  Coast Locals struck in sympathy, they were locked out and  the docks were barricaded again  as ihey had been in 192.1. This  time Ihey were guarded by armed police. There were a number  of violent confrontations.  When Ihe strikers mounted a  protest march on Ihe barricades, they were lirst tear-  gassed; then charged by club-  wielding mounted officers,  Many of the protestors were arrested and 24 were convicted  and jailed. It was repressive and  all-out war, designed to bring  the union  to  its  knees.   The  bloody strike dragged on into  the fall. Eventually, a supreme  court judge was brought in to  mediate. After listening to  testimony from both sides for  over a month, he ruled in  favour of the federation. Once  more, might had triumphed  over right.  Just as before, the dreaded  blacklist was brought inlo play  and Alec, along wilh many  other active strikers, was exiled  from the walcrfront.  "I was blackballed for quite a  while and I had to try and gel  along wilh various kinds of odd  jobs. Il was a real had period  lor a lol of us. finally, Ihey did  lake most of 111 back on. When  I hit my first grain ship after Ihe  layoff, Ihe brass welcomed me  with open arms.

I'd done a lot  of years working wheat and I  knew all the ropes. I showed  those green men a few shortcuts  and angles they'd never even  heard of. Wasn't very long  before I was promoted lo side-  runner. 1 was damn happy to be  back."  IX-spite Ihe fact lhat the  Union had officially lost the '35  strike, Ihe effort was by no  means in vain. It had instilled a  strong sense of solidarity among  the dockworkcrs lhat would  never again be crushed. Alec  cited an incident thai typified  this new spirit.  "One lime ihey brought in  coal shovels for us to use. I  guess they figured we'd move  more grain wilh Ihem. They  were so heavy that even an empty shovel took an effort lo lift.  Well, one night wc worked iill  nine o'clock, using these damn  things. There were 24 of us in  ihe crew and we were just about  dead. It was foggy as Hell when  we left the shin and you could  hear 24 splashes, one after the  other. That was the end of the  coal shovels. 1 guess they're still  down there in the bloody  mud!"  Alec was quite a different sort  of boss from some of the surly  slavedrivers he'd learned the  ropes under. He spurred his  crews on with common sense  advice rather than scornful invective.  "After I got to be a siderun-  ner, I had to spend a lot of time  in ihe 'tween-decks where 1  could see whal was going on.  This specific time, it was in the  middle of summer���and hot!  The boys were sweating away in  ihe hold below me. The 'tween-  decks on this ship were filled  wilh cases of peaches. I couldn't  resist and I threw one of these  cases down to the crew. Of  course the guys were thirsty as  Hell. They hit those peaches like  a bunch of bloody pirhana fish  pulling down a cow in the  Amazon River. In no time at  all, there was nothing left but  the pits. They sure did appreciate those goddamn  peaches!"  The docks still attracted a lot  or unusual and free-spirited  characters. One of these free  spirits was a man Alec knew only as Wimpy.  To be continued,...

The Haid-A-Way Restaurant  Even when one is sporting a leg cast, two pursuits which still remain  eminently enjoyable are food and drink. With that thought in mind I hobbled  out of my cottage to treat myself to dinner at one of the Coast's newest  restaurants���Gibsons' Haid-A-Way.  Very tastefully appointed and pleasantly filled with the strains of classical  guitar, I subsided into the relaxing atmosphere as soon as I sat down. My corner table put me next to a mother and her two young daughters. With a little  eavesdropping I was able to determine the degree of success of quite a number  of items on the menu.  I started with the cold crab salad served on a bed of endive with a tasty  sauce���the family at the next table thoroughly enjoyed the dinner rolls, barley  soup and an artistically served French onion soup.  My main dish was a delicious Veal Oscar���tender veal smothered in cheese,  asparagas and crab. The silence at the next table testified to the success of the  Salmon Wellington and Sole Florence in occupying the interest of the children.  They were augmenting their meal with large glasses of milk (very popular)  white I enjoyed the subtle flavour of imported Mexican beer.  ' I was still sipping my Cerveza as the family dug into ice cream and mocha  cheesecake. The dessert was a great success as the kids immediately displayed  the effects by imitating Mexican jumping beans!  A wonderful meal it was, and by all appearances a great place for the family. By the way, the service was excellent and I wouldn't hesitate to recomment  the Haid-A-Way as a dining spot.  FAMILY DINING  Cafe Pierrot- Comfortable atmosphere with warm, helpful staff.

Editor's note: Adam Szydd was  born Sag Johansen in Norway in  1945. At the age of Ave he moved to Canada and the Sunshine  Coast with his parents. Eighteen  years ago he made Israel his  home, but returns to the Coast  for occasional visits.  by  Szydd  For me it was a whole lot of  tears, a whole lot of Mozart's  Requim, and too much booze!  Boom!... Boom!... much  closer Ihis time...Boom!  ...Boom!...Silence...  The four of us sal huddled in  our make-shift, sealed shelter���  the most central room in our  small house. Gas masks still  firmly in place, we looked every  bit like aliens from some very  weird planet. This was Iraq's  third, or was il fourth, attack?  We soon losl track. Bul ihis  was Ihe first lime I fell real fear-  blood draining from my head,  shakes, sweating in February.  Why now?...Adrenalin all used  up? Was il lhal our favourite  saying, "Ah! Il will never happen, " was finally replaced by  "It's really happening"? Was il  the realization lhat Ihis might be  merely Ihe beginning of some  thing long and protracted? Or  was il the thought lhal Hussein,  a man of many surprises, might  have something very much  larger in his arsenal?  I removed my mask long  enough to lake another giant  slurp of brandy, al aboul the  same time the all-clear signal  sounded. We followed Ihe usual  routine: all of us heading for the  living-room and its 24 hour a  day TV.  It had been a direct hit some  IS minutes from our house.  There were shots of ambulances, ftre-lrucks, rescue  dogs and hysterical people running lo and fro.  I thought of my mother  who'd lived through the World  War II blitz in Europe. When  Ihey called Ihe next morning lo  see if we were still alive, I asked  her how she'd survived something infinitely more terrifying  lhan whal we were now going  through. Her answer, simply,  "I was only 18."  Aboul half an hour later, 7  am, the warning siren sounded  again. This was Iraq's first morning attack. This lime when il  was over I called my parents  back.  TECHNOLOG Y!... They 'd  already seen il on TV.  There was something  ominous in the air last August  when I returned from my short  trip to Canada. I remember  dragging Miri outside to look at  the moon in double crescent.  Misfocus? No, Miri saw it too;  a double crescent moon. Actually, from some time in June,  disharmony kept messing things  up.  1 cancelled my trip to Canada  twice; and when 1 finally arrived, there were no trips to Banff  or the Rockies, no swimming or  hiking, just specialists and  hospital for my very ill mother.  Then came the invasion of  Kuwait and a strong pull back  to Israel two weeks prematurely.  There were two memorable  evenings on that journey: one  Sunshine Coast  'ICES   DIRECT  HOME IMPROVEMENTS  SUNSHINE KITCHEN  ��� CABINETS ���  888-8411  ���Showroom Kern's Plaza,Hwy to"  Open Tuaaday to Saturday 10-4 prrij  MARINE SERVICES  .a-arn    Cornell's Marine Service1  ISBll.

"Hey man," he pleaded,  "what are you still doing over  there in that crazy place? You  should be here blowing your  horn!"  On my return I found my two  best friends had died the same  week of my departure. Sammy,  incredible pianist-musician,  -walking legend from  Churchill's platoon, monacle,  goatee���the whole bit. We  nicknamed him the Colonel,  which he'd actually been when  he travelled this way during the  war as interpretor to the old  man himself. Sam spoke fluent  Arabic. Then there was Smulic,  ball of high nergy violinist and  Chief Steward on El-Al. Both  the same week! Curse from  Baghdad? Bad luck? Chance?  I remember no sooner getting  airborn than the announcement  came over the speakers:  "Would Adam Szydel come  forward to the Steward's  quarters please." Oh no, what's  happened? Smulic wasn't on  this particular flight but he'd  left orders with his colleagues to  give me first class treatment,  even though, of course, I was  travelling last class...Champ-  pagne flight all the way!  The three of us were best  friends and shared the great  miracle of music. For now, this  too was over.  "Yes," I thought, as we em-  merged once again from our  shelter, "it's nol just Ihe  missiles; il's the whole depressing neurotic atmosphere, Ihe big  black cloud, the total disharmony thai war creates."  There was no school for my  son Noam, no work for me.  Rachael, Miri's mother, had no  place to go���her area had been  directly hil twice. Our garden  was some consolation, and we'd  managed to start another group  wilh a new violinist, but no one  wanted to be oul after 7 pm.

This short segment of Ihe  endless war is over. The  Americans are patting each  other on the back and passing  out medals for a job well done.

For example a person who  stipulates "no children" as a  condition of rental would be in  violation of 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 of the legislation  and could have a complaint filed  against them.

Dixon noted that, in addition to self government,  he and his negotiating  team would also discuss  the band's land claims,  "our comprehensive land  claim has been presented  for review... we'll fight just  as hard lor land claims as  we did for self governments," he said.  10 YEARS AUO  In the tradition of an  old-fashioned "barn-  raising" and described as  a "Project of Faith",  members of the Seventh  Day Adventlst Church  gathered on Sunday, May  3 from communities  across BC to erect a  church for their members  on the Sunshine Coast.  The mill rate set for  Sechelt for the coming  year takes a jump of nine  mills. Last year's mill rate  of 20 will be raised to 29  this year. Alderman Joyce  Kolibas was the only one  on Council who raised any  objections to the hike.  May 1 marked the completion of 35 years in the  general insurance  business for Richard  McKibbin of Gibsons. For  20 years of this period he  has been operating on the  Coast.  15 YEARS AGO  Sunshine Coast  residents are protesting  the 217 per cent ferry rate  increases. The new fares  announced by Transport  Minister Jack Davis will  eliminate the commuter  pass and raise the present  per passenger rate from  $2, a 100 per cent increase  to $4 for a double ferry  trip.

This brings to an end the  drawn out efforts of the  last two or three years to  obtain sufficient property  to enable reconstruction  of the bridge at a less  dangerous angle.  25 YEAR AGO  Final property settlement associated with improvement and replacement of the bridge at  Grantham's has been announced   by   Hon.   Phil  35 YEARS AGO  Born to Mr. and Mrs.  Bob Finnerty, a son, at  1:45 am on Thursday, May  3, one and one half miles  from Kleindale. All was in  contusion in the delivery  room, which was the back  seat of a taxi. Last report  from the hospital states  the mother and son are doing nicely but taxi driver  Bob Cumming is recuperating slowly. His wife  Grace, who had come  along for the ride, helped  deliver the baby as Bob  sped to St. Mary's  Hospital.  45 YEARS AGO  The good ship Prosper  prospered not so well in  the wind that blew here  Thursday night. The diesel  tug, owned by the Poole  Brothers at Grantham's,  blew ashore from the  moorings and sank.  The fish packer  Kathleen 1, owned by R.D.  Murdock, struck a reef and  sank in the Agamemnon  Channel near Green Bay.  She was en route to Egmont to complete her  cargo of fish for Vancouver. The crew of two  men, Bill Murdock and Vic  Palmer, narrowly escaped  being drowned as the boat  sank almost immediately  but they managed to  escape into the dory.

Mr. Woolmer has donated his prize to the Gibsons Boy  Scouts Jamboree Fund.  Contlnuad from page 21  been able to look beyond their  own primitive tribal ego.  War compensation for missile destruction?...Makes sense.  But what about compensation  for war-lag victims like myself?  People who are walking around  in a kind of post-war blues,  pockets empty from workless  months and realizing that after  all this noise, countless lives  wasted, a couple of billion  dollars spent that could have  fed Ethiopia for God knows  how many years, our region has  merely been returned to the  same deadly status quo. Maybe  the Allies and Hussein could  send some of their heroic  euphorics our way.  WHAT AM I STILL DOING HERE? How do I really  feel after all this? Well, a  Woody Allen tragedy might be  a good description. Three weeks  in Canada with my sick mother,  my two best friends gone, some  crazy fanatic dropping missiles  on our heads, my dog dead, excessive drinking that drove my  family away, two workless  months and a gigantic overdraft, and then an accident that  put  me in the hospital  for  five days. Evil Eye from Baghdad? Troubles come in bunches?  We did decide one thing  though; to keep the music going���fill the gaps of violence  wilh brilliant dabs of creativity.  And so for now another child of  peace puts on the back burner  dreams of a united One World  Family, or even a United Middle East Family.  What now, as I stare through  the eucalyptuses behind our  garden, as Mozart's Requiem  drenches our living room with  tragic other worldy splendour?  Well somehow, miraculously,  some of the pieces seem to be  coming back together. Yes, it  would feel good to live even in  some relative peace and harmony for the short time we're  all visiting here. Then again, no  mailer how many Husseins or  Swartzkopfs we conjure up,  ultimately our destinies aren't  wilh them or anyone or  anything else on this Earth, but  with our source; the Universe,  Cosmos���God if you prefer.  So tonight, if the sky is clear,  I'll gaze once again at ihis  source. Hopefully there won't  be any Patriots or scuds.  Make the Sylvia part  of your Vancouver adventure...
