Again,  the packed hall was evidence of  the widespread public interest in  the logging debate.  As promised, the CCR had  invited members of the local  logging community to present  their side of the story.  Moderator Dianne Evans, introducing panel speakers Sandy  Gibb, Tim Knight, Ken Sneddon, Barry Pearson and Kevin  Helenius, set the lone of the  meeting when she said, "We're  neighbours, we're here to talk  to each other, to offer differing  opinions and to try to come to  an agreement.  "What we are all looking at  here is a different policy with  regards to harvesting and tending of our forests....Methods  of forestry thai seemed suitable  in the past have been called into  question. I hope thai tonight the  community can come to some  agreement about what is our  common ground....we need the  forests, we need our forest  workers, we need our economy  to flourish. But the community  feels a real need to look at the  ways we all deal with those  issues.  Sandy Gibb, who has lived all  his life in Roberts Creek, owns  and operates Fleetwood Forest-  Products, a company that  employs 46 loggers. He is an advocate of clearcutting, but feels  that "practices are the key....a  well planned and executed clear-  cut is much more environmentally friendly than a poorly  planned and executed selective  cut...  "Part of the problem is that  the control and management of  these practices has taken a back  seat to administration in the  hearts and minds of our public  forest managers. We need to get  our Forest Service back on track  so they know what's going on  out in the woods as well as in  the community...  "Operators who refuse to  follow sound practices must be  dealt with decisively. Bad practices reflect on all of us, while  good ones usually go  unreported...the logic behind  good forest practices is not  rocket science...it is maintaining  streams and streamside vegetation, road drainage, avoiding  waste, minimizing ground  disturbance and site destruction. These things are ignored  only because the rules of the  game allow you to ignore lham,  and make more money in the  process.  "The idea of a 'community  March 25,1991    Volutrw45    laaua.2  Costly  sewer  for West  Seohelt  by Stuart  logging industry had its opportunity to present its perspective al the Roberts Creek Hall last  Thursday evening when the Concerned Coasl Residents held their second forum on logging and  forestry practices on the Sunshine Coasl.  forest watch' should be supported by every responsible  local operator...People in the  industry need to know that the  community is watching."  Gibb went on to describe  some of the logging practices of  the past, which, he said, were  far more damaging to the environment than most people  realize.  Tim Knight, a Registered  Professional Forester (RPF)  who operates his own consulting business, FBK Forestry  Services Ltd., has prepared a 10  page brief challenging the Position Paper that was presented  by the CCR at the first public  meeting in Roberts Creek.  Although he concedes that  there must be changes in logging  practices, Knight's brief comes  out strongly in favour of clear-  cut logging, claiming that the  economic viability of the logging industry on the Coast  depends on clearcuts and even  age, single species stands.  Barry Pearson, who has lived  all his life on the Coast, has  been logging for 34 years and  has practiced selective logging  for the last 10 years. He talked  about using the old logging  roads that, crisscross this whole  area, many of them built away  back in the days when logging  was still done with oxen. "If  roads are built properly the way  they were then, he said,  "they're always there, they  don't harm the environment."  He said that careful selective  logging practices allow the  forests to go on producing and  described a site that he had  recently logged for the third  time.  Ken Sneddon, who owns  Sechelt Creek Contracting, has  a log booming operation in  Howe Sound, and practices  selective logging in the McNab  Creek area where he has been  '��:idins "u high "alue product  for Canfor for eight years."  Sneddon agreed that the key  to many of the problems in the  industry would be the solution  of the tenure problem. He also  warned against blanket solutions, particularly with the  choice of species for reforestation.  "The single most important  point we need to look at," he  said, "is thai more planning is  needed by the Ministry...Site  specific planning will drive  down the size of the clearcuts,  the planners will be defining the  biological details of the site to a  much finer detail than ever happened before. If we do that, we  get better timber, ��� better  harvests."  Kevin Helenius, who produces specialized over-size  timbers, stressed the importance  of the 'value added' market for  the local industry.  Last week's three hour  meeting saw many speakers,  from both sides of the fence, express a lot of carefully thought  out ideas. One of the members  of the audience was District  Forester Barry Mountain, who  took little part in the discussions, except to comment on the  usefulness of the proceedings,,  and assure the audience that the  Ministry "was listening."  Two comments by the  panelists summed up the  meeting. "At the moment,  timber is the most important  resource of the forest," said  Tim Knight. "But that might  change."  Sandy Gibb agreed. "We are  in a transition stage where more  lhan timber harvesting is being  recognized in a forest," he said.  "You're not going to please  everyone on every issue. There  has to be some compromise."  Land Stewards target Gospel Rock  by Calhrine Fuller  "What do we want in Lower  Gibsons, Gower Point, Granthams Landing? What do we  want in terms of green space, in  terms of ecological areas, in  terms of land density? That's  the issue," Al Silver, president  of the Sunshine Coasl Land  Steward Society told a press  conference last week.  "From our poinl of view, our  community is small right now  and we have an opportunity to  pull together a model that's  going lo be a sustainable, livable  kind of community for a long  time."  The sociely is newly formed  and Iheir press release describes  the group as, "...dedicated lo  working toward identifying and  preserving the special areas of  the Sunshine Coasl, from Earls  Cove lo Port Mellon, Having  noted the increasing development of the Coasl, founding  directors sel about to create a  community based organization  to maintain those lands that  make the Sunshine Coast truly  unique."  The concept is not a new one.  Several international organizations have pursued preservation  of endangered areas (such as the  Amazon rain forests) in just this  manner, asking individuals to  put their money where, their  mouths are and provide the  means to purchase land to protect it.  The SC Land Stewards want  this concept to take root locally,  Silver told reporters.  "It's fine, as a developed nation, to be telling a third world  country what to do with their  Amazon rain forest, but it's a  little hypocritical when we're  raping our back yard."  The society's first project is  the acquisition of Gospel Rock  in Lower Gibsons.  "The Gospel Rock project  happened to be in process  around the same time that we  started lo organize. It was a  good opportunity and a worthy  project for the society to hop into," Silver explained.  The sociely is now in negotiations with Hayden Killam,  owner of the property, lo purchase a major portion of the  rock. While Silver was not  prepared to disclose the price  under discussion, he acknowledged it is in the six figure  range. Last year Killam advertised the property for sale at  $2.5 million.  "The bottom line is, this  sociely runs on money and life,  in general runs on ownership,"  he slated. "If the public isn't  going lo own the land then it's  up for development. Thai's  what communities have been  buill on in the past. Thai's what  North America is run on. And  if we don't become involved in  lhal process then we're going lo  miss the boal."  Although the sociely has yet  to qualify for tax exempt status,  vice president Cathy Kenny says  the community has already  begun donating money. "Some  people have donated over a  thousand dollars," she added.  In addition lo donations, ihe  Land Steward Sociely has set up  a pledge system, whereby  people can pledge a sel amount  The Sunshine  Coasl Land  Stewards Society is off to a  big start.

Residents of West Sechelt  could be paying an annual sewer  service cost of $230 for 20 years  whether or not they use a proposed new "gravitational"  sewer system designed to service  their area.  Derek Ashford, the engineer  contracted by the District of  Sechelt to study the District's  present sewer system, told  Sechelt Council last Wednesday  that $2.83 million would be  needed to provide West Sechelt  with adequate service capable of  being expanded to meet area  growth projections.  Ashford proposed all the  homes in the area that could  conceivably be hooked to the  new system would shoulder an  equal share of the cost even if  they don't hook up.  In addition to the annual  $230 would be the regular sewer  charges of $40 plus the actual  cost of hooking up, which  would vary from home to home  depending on the difficulty and  distance of running a line from  one's house to the main line.  West Sechelt's sewage problems stem from two "effluent  absorption" fields ��� Creekside  and Lynwood ��� that failed due  to the soil in the area ��� clay.  "The effluent can't escape  (through absorption), said  Ashford, "and is consequently  overflowing into ditches  alongside the fields."  The effluent from Creekside,  according to Ashford, is currently coming down a ditch  beside Mason Road through a 3  inch pipe. "This is a very temporary solution, fraught with  potential problems," claimed  Ashford, "...we're running a  gauntlet."  Ashford noted that, while the  life expectancy of an absorption  field is usually 20 years,  Creekside failed in about a  month.  Ashford stated lhat Sechelt  would also require an additional  sewage treatment plant to be  built in the next five years if the  municipality intends to be  responsible for its own sewage  rather than looking to the  SCRD.  He recommended the new  plant, geared to handle the ex- -  pected sewage volume, be  located in the Wilson  Creek/Davis Bay area. The cost  of this new plant would also be  reflected by an additional  charge for sewer service.  Alderman Peggy Wagner felt  there was a more economical  alternative to the Ashford proposals. She recommended  dividing the area into large lots,  each with enough land to accommodate an individual septic  field. "I feel very strongly about  this," she said, "...this land is  not suitable for dense housing  without very expensive sewage  systems. We are now looking at  a very expensive place to live.  It's astronomical..."  pho'to"contest details" PAGE 25  'News'  moves  north  We are pleased to announce  that the Editorial department of  the Coast News has been moved  to our Sechelt office.

Trail to Triangle Lake sought by society  by Stuart Burnside  The Sargenls Bay Society  (SBS) has approached the  Ministry of Forests about acquiring 100 hectares of Crown  land that would be annexed, by  way of a two kilometre long  "corridor", to the Sargents Bay  Park.  The focus of the 100 hectare  parcel, which lies about one  kilometre south of Trout Lake,  is a small, marshy "wetland"  area dubbed "Triangle Lake",  because of ils unique shape.  Joop Burgerjon, Secretary lo  the SBS, was instrumental in  organizing the planned acquisition. He lold the Coast News,  "The Triangle Lake area is environmentally sensitive. It is  surrounded by a rich sphagnum  bog and is virtually untouched  by human activity."  While the area in question is  separated from the Sargeants  Bay Park by some two  kilometres, the SBS is also asking Forestry for a strip of wooded Crown land lhat would conned the two parcels. "There is  no existing trail from Sargeants  Bay lo Triangle Lake," said  Burgerjon. "In fact, Ihere are  no trails at Triangle Lake at all.  Bul Ihis 'corridor' could be used  lo create a trail and lie Ihe two  areas together."  Burgerjon said he is optimistic aboul the scheme to  protect the Triangle Lake area  because of a "comprehensive"  sludy done by the Sargeants Bay  Sociely lo determine the  feasibility of Ihe acquisition.  "There shouldn't be a problem from Forestry," he said,  "...Only two per cent of the  area is classified (on Foreslry  maps) as being 'good' (the  degree of marketability for logging interests), while 79 per cent  is classified as being 'low' or  SBS Secretary  Joop Burger-  poor .  After meeting lasl Thursday  with the Sunshine Coast's  Regional Manager for the  Ministry of Forests, Barry  Mountain, Burgerjon remained  optimistic. "Il went well," he  said   of   the   meeting,   "Mr.  Mountain was quite encouraging. He wants to study our proposal lo see if the statistics are  accurate...I Ihink we'll get it  protected."  Burgerjon said he feels it is  important for Coast residents to  continue trying to preserve the  quality of life here through the  acquisition of environmentally  sensitive land for park use  because "Vancouver is  spreading like an oil blot, it  won't be long before the  population of the Coast explodes."

They may be  IN A NUTSHELL  amiable enough around the  house, in a fuzzy sort of way,  but ask them to sign up for a  bridge club, or a series of evening seminars on the environment, or even a winter's  meetings of the cheese and wine  brigade, and you're apt to catch  a flicker of near panic at the  back of the eye.  It is of course a curious pursuit, described also as a disease,  an inflammation of the ego, etc.  . It can be approached though as  a business, and in our time as a  'profession'.  It was Samuel Butler (I think)  who said to an aspiring writer  asking his advice, that writing  was the simplest thing. All you  needed was a table and a chair,  an amount of paper and some  pencils; you just sat down and  wrote what occurred to you;  whether you Lived or died  depended on what occurred to  you.  Today's professional writing  provides a number of buffers  against this dire scenario. Today  ot course you can take a course  in it. Today in fact, if you want  one of the hundreds of  thousands of jobs there are in  writing, you have to take a  course in it.  These courses came along  after the war and after my student times and I cannot tell you  anything at all about what they  teach in them. 1 have, though,  two friends who have done  quite comfortably teaching  these courses, one 'creative' and  the other 'journalism'. 1 have  not harried these chaps you  understand, but I have tried  picking away at them on occasion.

Representing  SCRAPS was new President,  Bernard McGrath, and outgoing director Allison Leduc.  Striking a positive stance,  Area E Director Jim Gurney  observed thai "It is of significant advantage to us (SCRD)  having groups like SCRAPS  working on the Coast."  McGrath and Leduc briefly  filled the directors in on  SCRAPS' financial picture (not  rosy), Ihe current market for  recyclable materials (poor), and  their prospects down the line  (excellent).  SCRAPS came into the  meeting looking for assistance  from the SCRD to the tune of  some $10 to $12 a ton, based on  88 tons of material which the  group pulled out of the  "wastestream" over a four-  month period.  The directors ultimately supported Jim Gurney's proposal  to provide SCRAPS with a  Diversion Credit amounting fo  $13 a ton, $3 more per ton than  originally requested. This means  the group will receive some $330  a month or $3960 a year in support from the Regional District.

There  was one 1 remember from the  'fifties', a correspondence  course, called 'The Famous  Writer's School of Writing'. It  advertised more lavishly than  anyone had ever done before.  You couldn't pick up a  magazine, almost any magazine  of any sort, without being confronted by a picture of this  group of Famous Writers. They  were, too, pretty well the top  selling writers of the time, and  they were headed by Bennet  Cerf, Chairman of the Board of  the Random House Publishing  Company.  Well, here were tnese top  guys and they would personally  vet your stuff. All you did was  fill in the coupon and a  counsellor would arrive,  anywhere on the continent,  Utah, Saskatchewan, anywhere.  This kind of personal touch  from the great ones of course  did not come cheap, but then  you also had an 'in' with the  principle editors, and after all it  was your whole career they were  talking about. They would take  a $200 down payment on a $900  contract, and this is in the early  sixties, you would hardly believe  il, perhaps, but early-on there  were 65,000 aspirers enrolled.  The bubble was burst by an  investigative writer who had, as  it happened, never ever been to  any kind of a school at all.  Jessica Mitford had been  brought up 'at home' and here  she was in the States, trying to  make it as a free-lance, ..nd warring in this terrible way with all  the very top guns.  The surprising thing of course  about this nasty tale is that there  were so many people willing to  put up their last buck for a  writing course. This itself is of  course a good thing. Particularly 1 think a good thing when it  comes to writing in retirement.  I have long thought that the  happiest and most vigorous of  the old folk in sight were artists  of one sort and another.  Picasso, notably. Casals,  notably. On the Coast, Carter,  notably. All these vigorous old  darlings were moving seamlessly  into their nineties, while all  around bank presidents,  sociologists, TV personalities  and the like were breaking up  on the rocks of being left to  their own devices early in their  sixties, if they made it that far.

Publisher,  Calhrine Fuller. Editor,  Jan Michael Sherman, Editor  The kids are all right  Career Counselling Day was held recently at Chatelech  Secondary School. Students from Pender Harbour and  Elphinstone joined their Sechelt compatriots for a ritual  which, we suspect, many adults readers should have no  problem remembering.  Three members of the Coast News staff participated,  meeting with groups of young people who, for the most  part, came across as curious, interested in the world, enthusiastic about their lives and what they hope and intend  to do with them.  In short, the kids are alright. Left alone to their own  devices, their own dreams and transient stirrings of immortality, they will continue to make life choices with the  same degree of uncertainty and bravado as we did.  From what we observed at Chatelech, it is hard not to  conclude that perhaps adults worry a trifle too much about  the young, paying less attention than they should to their  own shortcomings as human beings.  The kids are alright, and they'd like the grown-ups to  see and accept this simple truth.  A smoking howitzer?  Richard Nixon's "smoking gun" during Watergate  turned oul lo be a sel of devastating audio tapes, which  established beyond question his culpability in thai sorry  affair.  Make way for the "VanderGate Tapes", folks, a  "smoking howitzer" courtesy of one Faye Leung,  erstwhile and outraged former real estate agent for BC's  hapless premier.  Portions of the recordings made by Ms Leung are as inadvertently funny as they are damning. To hear and feel  the leader of a province cringe, placate, and resignedly accept Leung's bombastic, hysterical, and threatening  telephonic tirade is akin to watching Dumbo the Elephant  being browbeaten by Minnie Mouse.  Or, perhaps, Vander Zalm might be even better viewed  as something of a Gulliver, being finally trussed beyond  the possibility of free movement. With the release of the  tapes came word that a Special Prosecutor has been appointed to oversee some of the proliferating investigations  targeting the hapless Socred leader.  Yet, incredibly, Vander Zalm clings pathetically to his  delusions by claiming, "Someone's out lo discredit me."  You're right, Bill. To discover precisely who, just glance  inlo any reflective surface.  Then resign.  Battles preferred  While the hype and hysteria of public confrontation  may hold appeal for the warrior in each of us, it is rarely  an atmosphere conducive 10 the exchange of information.  The requisite public presentations of five year plans by the  forest industry is a more appropriate forum for serious  questions and answers.  The poor turnout al Canfor's public information sessions last week would appear to validate the forest industry's assertion that environmental reactivists prefer bailie to constructive dialogue.  The choice is ours  Whatever we, as individuals, feel about the predicted invasion of our rural sanctuary by Vancouver emigrants, it  would seem to be inevitable in the near future. The Land  Steward Society, a group of pragmatic visionaries, is offering a realistic alternative to suburbanization.  If we really value our green space and lifestyle, we can  preserve it to a great extent. But it will cosi us. So the bottom line is, are we willing to reach into the bank account  and really do some preventative investing, or would we  rather spend the next decade harrassing our politicians to  do something and whining about whal we've lost?  The choice is ours.  One doesn't have to be an admirer of Premier Bill Vander  Zalm to feel a twinge of compassion for the man. In 1986.  despite a combative record as a  cabinet minister (he quit the  cabinet, let us remember, in a  dispute over land use, labelled  all of his associates as  "gutless") he was anointed as  parly saviour. The unlovable  Bill Bennett had outlived his  father's popularity and ihe  Socreds were tar behind in the  polls. A new leader was the  prescribed rriedicine and here  came smiling Bill.  This was Ihe same man who,  a lew years earlier, had called  ihe entire Socred Cabinet  gutless, the same man who suggested giving welfare recipients  shovels: this was the man vjho  mused aloud aboul ihe trench  on cornflake packages and sued  a cartoonist lor libel subsequently; the same man who Had  enraged the professionals Lin  education while. Ire held flat  portfolio. f  Controversy followed "lire  man like a shadow, as sure as  his smile. He was a ftftical  maverick who followed^s own  star, listened lo his ,6wn personal drum beat. Bul when a  parly, whose prevailing  philosophy since ils inception  has been the retention of power  al all costs, is in need of a  saviour lo pull that trick off  once again; and when thai  sa\ iour is as charming and good  looking, as glamourous, as Bill  Vander /aim ami matched with  a wile whose charm equals his  own. then why should a power-  hungry political part> split hairs  over tempests of the past.  The bubble ol' popularity has  largely burst lor Bill Vander  Zalm. He could be a factor lor  Don't be blaming  Bill, or...the trouble  with fairy tales  MUSINGS  John Burnside  years in BC provincial politics  as the leader of a rump party of  fundamentalist zealots; his  natural constituency, but it is  difficult to see how he can  preside over a coalition of interests broad enough lo retain  political power.  Bul Ihe man hasn't changed.  From maverick to saviour lo  political embarassmenl. Bill  Vander Zalm remains the same.  If he didn'l deserve the unquestioned adoration he seemed lo  elicit in W86. neither does he  deserve the detestation thai is  his lol in most political circles  today.  This is not to be interpreted  as a defence of the man from  ihis quarter. His apparent  vagueness   about   what   con  stitutes ethical behaviour in the  province's highest office is  simply unacceptable. The  premier brandishes his religion  as though il were enough to ensure political morality; the finer  poims of ethics and public  honour appear to be a mystery  to him���but lhat is not new.  I remember a convention dinner of Ihe BC and Yukon  Newspaper Association at  which the newly-chosen Socred  leader was the prime speaker.  The supposedly hard-headed  newspaper folk in ihe audience  fawned on his every word.''  Every beaming smile fortilied  them in their conviction that BC  had its own version of Ihe  Trudeauesque charismatic  leader. What were the man's  philosophies; whal was his track  record? These were questions  lhal no One asked, lo attempt  lo do so was to label oneself as  ' outdated and peevish.  Style was the thing; charm  was the essence of political  leadership. Here was a man,  whatever his eccentricities, who  could be relied upon to lead the  forces of the free against the  socialist hordes and do il with a  flair.  The trouble with fairy laics  and fables, invaluable guides as  thev can be. is that when vou try  to transfer them holus bolus to  the aggrievedly complex and  tedious business of everyday life  you lend to become unstuck.  Only in fairy laics does Prince  Charming arrive at the lasl  possible moment, as in 1986,  and render everything  everywhere happy ever after.  The Social Credit Parly in the  early I950's was an alliance  formed lo keep the socialist  bogevmen al bav. Apart from  1972 to 1975, il has been successful al retaining power by  brandishing fear in the lace of  Ihe electorate. Irom 1975 lo  1986 it turned the trick by ulilis-  ing a son of W.A.C. Bennett���a charmless creature except for his bloodlines. When  parly insiders decided Ihey had  worn oul Ihe memory of the  party's founder, ihey dumped  Bennett the Younger and went  looking for a new saviour lo  keep die reds from the levers of  power.  It has been a shallow and  profoundly undemocratic exercise'since its incepliinf��� and It  has been one thai the BC voiers  in the majority have been happy  with.  "Give us clearly identified  dragons lo Tear, then provide us  with a recognizable St. George  to slay them and we will be happy," seems to have been Ihe  prevailing altitude.  Bill Vander Zalm mav nol be .  a suitable mati'io be premier,  but then he never was. It was his  fate to play St. George in the  fable of polities which has  governed BC. He has been  shown lo be human and no  saint, and there is the dawning  awareness that there are no  dragons. Bul we shouldn't be  blaming Bill for all this. For a  while he gave us what we seemed lo want.

Adrian Hovesiad, Sechelt  Speaker found  too philosophical,  too technical  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following   wis   received   for  publication  Mr. Bruce Sieffert  Ministry of Forests  Victoria, BC  Dear Mr. Sieffert:  I attended the Forestry  Seminar in Sechelt, March II,  1991, at which you were one of  the guest speakers, representing  the Ministry of Forests.  I found the discussion interesting and informative, but  mostly philosophical and quite  technically oriented. Together  with many others, I would have  wished for more discussion of  local issues, especially the Chapman Creek and Grey Creek  watersheds, and found that, due  to lime restraints, it was impossible to deal thoroughly with  the problems.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District is responsible for supplying a pure and adequate  amount of water to the residents  of the Sunshine Coast and, in  spite of numerous attempts,  have not yet been successful in  acquiring jurisdiction over the  Chapman and Grey Creeks  watersheds. This is a most  untenable position in which  they are placed.  As Dr. Douglas Golding  stated, the GVWD has three  lakes which are used for storage  and, in the event of an interruption of supply in one reservoir,  they can utilize the other two.  We, unfortunately, do not share  their good fortune.  This past winter we have suffered three major and five  minor slides in the Chapman  Creek area and were fortunate  not to lose our intake. Most, if  not all, of these slides were  caused by poor logging practices.  In conclusion, I wish to  reiterate that our main priority  is protecting and enhancing our  watersheds. It is possible to survive without logging, but not  without water.  James S. Bartley,  President  Elphinstone Electors'  Association  Use it or  lose it!  Editor's Note: The following  was received for publication.  People of Gibsons:  It is nol very often these day*  lhal you, the people, can decide  whal you want to happen, and  make il happen.

"Welcome to the Real  World"  What an interesting opinion  you seem to have formed about  us Mr. Shinn. How long has it  been since you were in high  school?  You quote Northwood as being "a trashy teen scene...where  a drug dealer, a slutly IS year  old, and a grim bunch of teens  make light of drugs, alcohol, lying, stealing and teen sex." You  seem to consider this  unrealistic!?!  The things that happen in our  high schools (not only my  school, Chatelech) would most  likely shock you then.  You call the Northwood teens  grim, and say you have done  much to help the teens in  Sechelt, but, \ewsflash!, what  you see as help, we more often  see as restrictions.  You say, "we let our leens  know these behaviours are  wrong." Do you truly ihink  they care? Yes, It's a grim  ideology; welcome to our  world, perhaps you should take  a closer look.  Peter Hunt  Grade II, Chatelech  Activist sets  record straight  Editor:  Last fall, after having found  evidence of improper toxic  waste disposal along an Interfor  logging road in the Chapman-  Gray Creek watershed, a group  of local Sunshine Coast  residents asked the Waste  Management Branch to investigate. At a meeting on  watershed logging last Thursday  night in Roberts Creek, a local  contractor operating in the area,  trivialized the incident. He suggested that misrepresentation  had been made and that the  problem was merely about  water containers. His attitude is  not reassuring.  A wheelbarrow containing  samples of the petroleum product containers, with substantial residues inside, was handed  over to the committee responsible for watershed protection at  a meeting of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District. One container had a skull and  crossbones on it. For anyone to  suggest that those were "drinking water containers" is absolutely irresponsible. People  who thoughtlessly discard their  spent petroleum product containers in the forest should not  be allowed to log anywhere near  the source of our community's  drinking water and they should  be   watched   very  carefully  anywhere else they operate.

Klilh I (irri-slfi photo.  by George Cooper. 886-8520  BUDGET NIGHTMARES  A day with Ihe superintendent of schools in the Sunshine  Coast Dislricl proved that he is  indeed a busy man. If the day I  shadowed Clifford Smith was  not a typical one, I was assured  that there were many like it, and  all of them just as busy.  The su|>erinlendeni is now  Ihe chief executive officer of  this school dislricl; the former  dual control equally shared by  superintendent and secrelary-  Ireasurer has been abolished.  Consequently on his  shoulders falls the responsibility  for every aspect of school  business. Thai calls for a  veritable Atlas to carry our  world of education.  On this particular day the  superintendent's time table  listed meetings and office work  from 8 in the morning to 12 or  later thai evening.  About 10 he initialed a flurry  of telephone calls lo those  districts thai, like ours, had just  been ordered by Vicloria to  slash budgets already established for the year. Object of the  calls: to organize a group appeal  lo ihe ministry to ease the demand for such deep cuts to their  budgets.  At noon, off lo Sechelt where  the superintendent was to be  guest speaker at the Rotary  Club's luncheon. And as we  motored to Sechelt, "I find time  driving can be well spent on Ihe  cellular telephone reluming calls  lo parents who have mailers lo  discuss with me."  At the luncheon salient points  in his General Information  package concerning the school  district were brought to Ihe  Roiarians' attention.  Back in Gibsons in time for a  mid-afternoon meeting with the  parents' committee of Roberts  Creek School lo discuss Ihe  agenda for a forthcoming  meeting with the minister of  education. The purpose; to  make a plea for a more adequate addition to the school  lhan the present plans call for.  4:00 pm ��� a meeting of  school board and secondary  principals. Topic: drop-out  rales (very small) and recommendations for programs to  continue support for potential  drop-outs.  5:00 pm: a parent and adolescent come to appeal a suspen  sion. An hour and a hall later,  the mailer having been gone  over in detail, ihe suspension  was not lifted.  A hurried supper and then a  7:00 pm meeting where the  secretary-treasurer, Tim Anderson, presented Ihe proposed  cuts lo the board and representatives of unions, principals and  parents for discussion.  Aboul 8:30 Ihe superinien-  denl wcnl lo his office 10 meet  with one of Ihe pi incipals. Since  I crept away al thai lime, I  don't know when he lell lor  home.  During Ihe day Ihere was time  for him lo tell me of the  demands now made of schools.  "The school steps in when other  ministries do nol act because the  child is there before us���  hungry, bruised, sleepy." And  those are only the extremes.  There are still reverberations of  ihe Noyes affair distressing  youngsters.  In the superintendent's  General Informalion package,  the Roiarians could read lhal  the district has 3155 Students al  a cost of $5877 each budgeted  for ihis year; thai direct instruction costs jusl over $14 million;  the district administration costs  arc aboul Va of a million;  operations and maintenance  calls lor $2'.-; million; transportation over half a million.  Besides the sum of $200,000  lhal the ministry has insisted be  cut from this year's budget, ihe  school district has to find the  costs of ihe legal lees for Ihe  court action in the French Immersion wrangle. Coast News, March 25,1991  ISECHELT SCENARIO i  by Margaret Wilt, 885-3364  They tell me that spring  started, officially, at 7:02 pm on  March 20 this year, but I find  thai hard to believe. Spring  always starts for me when I see  the first hummingbird, and so  far this year I haven't seen hide  nor feather of those tiny harbingers of spring. Where are  they? Maybe they don't want to  take a chance on returning too  early in case we get another  dump of snow���heaven forbid!

On March 18, those of us  who live within a certain radius  of Coopers Green received a  Notice of Intent lo issue a  development variance permit.  This was lo allow relaxation  of the setback from the properly   line   adjoining   Redrooffs  Road   to   accomodate   the  caretaker's mobile home. We.|  were informed lhal comments,  could be made lo the SCRD(|  regarding this project between  March 15 and March 28, and if  we wished to make any comments in person we could do so  at the Regional Board meeting,  March 28.  The reason I feel lhat ihis is  worthy of being drawn lo your  addition is thai ihis property  line had already been extended  and the whole clearing job completed some two weeks before  these notices were sent oul for  comment.  As ii happens, I had no objections to the proposal, but it's  a good thing I didn't. It went  through anyway. So I wonder  what the point is of appearing  to consul! residents when the  project is already a fait accompli.

CONCERNED RESIDENTS  I recently received a letter  from a resident concerned  about the wildlife and pet  population in the harbour. She  suggested, to help reduce the pet  population problem that you  spay or neuter your cat or dog  and keep them on your own  property, otherwise, how can  we expect to see deer and raccoons and their young. Pender  Harbour is a paradise and to  keep il thai way, we must be  loving and responsible towards  the wildlife and our wonderful  pets. She does have a point  there!

Not only  because of the major roadwork  that has been completed and is  presently being done, bul also  by the number of lots being  cleared for what I presume will  be new houses. The migration  of mainlanders to ihe Sunshine  Coast is far reaching but it  seems Egmont is just that few  extra miles loo many for the  madding crowds.  In a way, il's good to know  that we're not in line for any.,  ' drastic changes to our Utile  town, like a 7-Eleven on theeor-  ner or (I shudder to think of il)  a video arcade. It's bad-enough  that someone wants to build a  town site at the Harmony  Islands and export water from  Freil Lake. He must not realize  that Egmont is kind of like the  last frontier on this Coast and  I'd be willing to bet that most  locals would be happy if it  stayed that way.  I must apologize for a lack of  any real news this week, the  problem being that I'm out of  town for the next month or so.

Many  Roberls Creek residents,  especially those wilh properly  along this major local artery,  still refer to Ii by its original  name. Recently I was Introducing a rather long term Creek  resideni to a new Crecker. The  new Crecker asked pleasantly,  "Where do you live?"  The reply came, "Hall  Road."  "I don'l know where lhal  is,"  slated   the  new  Crecker  hesitantly. I asked if Ihis was a  lest. The long term Creeker told  ihis story of her catch-22 posi-  lion.  Il seems she never quile  knows whal lo reply lo inquiries  about ihe whereabouts of her  domicile. If she should answer,  "Roberls Creek Road", lo  someone who's been around for  a while, ihey could and frequently do lake offence lhat ihe  older, more historic, name was  not given.  Again, as was Ihe case above,  If she replies, "Hall Road", il  gives the impression of belonging to an exclusive clique and  testing ihe depth of another's  roots.  So, Hall Road never really  did gel a new name.

It's been over two weeks since  Chief Justice Allan McEachern  handed down his landmark  decision in the Gitksan-Wet'  suwet'en lands claim case and  Chief Tom Paul of the Sechelt  Band continues to hold his  peace on the controversial judgment. Once again, last week  Paul refused comment on the  decision stating that the complete text of the judgment needs  to be studied.  His reticence may be  motivated by diplomacy. The  Sechelt Band incurred negative  reaction from some native activists for the process they chose  in pursuing self-government.  But the recent court decision  seems to indicate the Sechelts  made a wise decision in choosing to negotiate self-government  separately from land claims.  In his Reasons for Judgment,  MacEachren slated thai  aboriginal ownership of the  traditional lands was lost in colonial times, under the law. This  has effectively demolished self-  government demands of Indians  based on the concept of exclusive title to land.  On the other hand, and congruent wilh the Sechelts' approach to land claim settlements, MacEachren was clear  in stating an obligation put on  the provincial government, at  the same time, of fair-dealing  with the Indian people. He emphasized the validity of "user  rights" and his decision compels  the provincial government to  consult with affected native  people before any resource  development lakes place on  traditionally used lands.  Meanwhile, the Sechelts are  patiently waiting for a response  from Federal Native Affairs  Minister Tom Siddon. Last  November ihe band presented  "A Practical Proposal for  Resolving the Indian Land  Claim in British Columbia as it  Affects the Sechell Indian  Band" lo Siddon's predecessor.  The tone of the document is  very much in line wilh  MacEachren's position that  these issues must be negotiated,  in good faith, outside of the  .��� court system.  In this position paper, the  in  ��*Mir. ~.~                          I  .. ^.tr Awaam  ^m\\\  b^.;-i  Lait  November  Chief Ton  Paul of the  Sechelt Indian Band  unveiled Ihe  Band's land  cliim proposal.  Band maintains, "To us, land  claims settlement is nothing less  lhan an opportunity for this  province to transform itself by  Ihe constructive, mutually  beneficial act of rectifying the  historical injustice done to ils  native people. And we say that  this can be done with benefit to  all British Columbians."  They outline the four principles which form the foundation of the claim: justice for the  Indians concerned; contribution  to Canada; finality of settlement and certainty. The Band  slates clearly, "Unless Canada  and other Canadians can be  assured thai the eventual result  will be a greater contribution lo  Canada from Ihe beneficiaries  of settlement, it is difficult lo  see whal will be the attraction,  for them, of plunging into the  process."  They also insist lhat any settlement should be final, nol  dragging renegotiations on into  ihe future, which will enable  everyone concerned to move  forward wilh a clear understanding thai the issue is settled.  The Sechelts are nol looking  lo acquire more land in their  settlement, but do want a portion of Ihe monies higher levels  FREE  Soil Testing Clinic At  QUALITY FARM & GARDEN SUPPLY  Sunday, March 31st from 11 am - 3 pm  HHP^^^ Drop In For  P^���+a\\  w A Complete  V   aWW    On The Spot  Soil Analysis  NO  WAITING  Includes PH & Nitrogen,  Phosphorus, & Potash  We Carry A Complete Line Of Fertilizers  QUALITY FARM & GARDEN SUPPLY  JJJ I'r.tti Road, Clbioni  886-7527  YOUR YEAR ROUND GARDEN CENTRE  SYLVIA  Make the Sylvia part  of your Vancouver adventure...

The actual amount of the  compensation requested is  $54,319,084, to be paid jointly  by Ihe Federal and Provincial  Governments.  While the Sechelt people have  nol traditionally enjoyed an affinity with the mining industry,  Iheir recent success with the  gravel operation has encouraged them to further explore the  potential of developing these  natural resources. Part of the  land settlement claim includes a  proposition lo share on a 50/50  basis wilh the Province "...ihe  royalties and Ihe other  payments accruing from the  taking of any and all natural  resources from the Sechell  aboriginal territory."  In addressing Ihe question of  hunting and fishing rights, Ihe  Band points lo iheir salmon  enhancement work as an example of their approach to the entire land settlemenl issue. "Our  viewpoint on the fisheries further reflects the attitude of our  people towards Ihe sharing concept bul here, rather lhan ask  for a share in a diminishing  resource1, we wish lo enhance it  and share Ihe restored resource  lhat results. Already, our Band,  . under contract lo Fisheries and  Oceans Canada, operates a  highly regarded hatchery'at  Porpoise Bay. We operate a  food fish operation under strict  permit, and police the operation  lo ensure compliance.  "Il is our proposal, in partnership with the federal government, to restore traditional  fisheries through a coordinated  enhancement effort. Once  restored, the resource would be  administered on a 50/50 sharing  i basis under a joint managemenl  committee comprised ol  federal, provincial, commercial  and sports fishing and Band  representatives."  Within the context of land  settlement negotiations, the  Sechell Indian Band is attempting to deal with an issue which  Sechelt  p*5*" Public Library _..

According to Chief Paul,  Revenue Canada were not  prepared lo deal with their proposal in the earlier negotiations.  Now, in Ihe land claims  discussions, the Band is suggesting that Sechelt Indians  begin to pay the same federal  and provincial taxes as other  Canadians, wilh the change being phased-in over 50 years in 10  per cent increments every five  years.  In summing up the stand of  the Sechelt Indian Band Ihe  position paper stales, "The  monetary compensation lhal we  seek can be viewed by Ihe Province as a retroactive sharing of  monies already received.  Although it will cost Ihe Federal  Government a new sum of  money, we have already expressed our willingness,  recognizing the fiscal realities of  the day, to accept payment over  a 20 year period on terms lo be  agreed,  "Whal we propose has no  adverse consequences for other  local governments.

Wilson's last item to be discussed was a proposal to chance  Council meeting hours from beginning at 7:30 pm to commencing at 5 pm. "We could all be beside our fires by 8  o'clock," he ventured.  Consensus of the rest of council was to discuss the suggestion rather than decide on it. This prompted Wilson to vacate  the premises "If you won't start at five, I'm not staying past  10 pm," he said.  He was persuaded to return for the in-camera session.  AIRPORT LEASE FEES QUESTIONED  Alderman Art Whistler, Chairman of the Airport Committee, expressed concerns at last Wednesday's Council meeting  that the District wasn't charging enough for the leasing of airport land to airplane clubs.  In comparing prices charged by Sechelt to those charged in  Campbell River and Chilliwak (airports of a comparable  size), Whistler pointed out that where flying clubs in Sechelt  were given 20 year airport contracts at a dollar a year, both  Chilliwack and Campbell River would charge over $4000,  and would not give more than a five year contract.  Alderman Michael Shanks pointed out that one of the  clubs, ihe Elphinstone Aero Club was fundamental to the  "very existence" of the airport.  ACACIAS AXED  Three of ihe IS, or so, Acacia trees located in the park near  the Sechelt Cenotaph need lo be cut down, according to  Alderman Bob Wilson.  Wilson, al the March 20 Sechelt Council meeting, said the  trees in question, a special African Species that are difficult to  grow in this climate, have become diseased and have to  removed "for reasons of public safety".  SCRD REMAPS  Alderman Bob Wilson, at last Wednesday's Sechelt Council meeting, raised objections to a portion of the Sunshine  Coasl Regional District's remaping of the region to eliminate  area C and redefine the districts of each director.  "It's a bit peculiar," Wilson said, "the Porpoise Bay Road  ��� :he part in the Indian Municipality ��� St. Mary's Hospital  and their lands, BC Hydro and their lands are now in Area  B."  Wilson pointed out that the Indian Band sold the ground  the hospital is on for $1. He noted that the BC Hydro was  also located on Band Land.  BIKE STANDS DISCUSSED  Alderman Art Whistler, Sechelt Council's representative to  the SCRD's Transportation Committee, reported last  Wednesday lhat the commmittee was encouraging Sechelt to  look into providing bicycle stands at key areas throughout the  Municipality (the village core, parks etc.)  The Corporation  of the District  of Sechelt  NOTICE OF  PUBLIC HEARING  Pursuant to Sections 956 and 957 of the Municipal  Act, a Public Hearing will be held in the Sunshine  Coast Regional District Board Room, 5477 Wharf  Road, Sechelt, B.C., on Wednesday, April 3rd, 1991  at 7:00 p.m., to consider Zoning Amendment Bylaw  No. 25-30 and Official Community Plan Amendment  Bylaw No. 22-14. At the Hearing all persons who  deem their interest in property to be affected by the  proposed bylaw shall be afforded an opportunity to  be heard on matters contained in these Bylaws.  1. The purpose of Zoning Amendment Bylaw No.  25-30 is that Lot 5, Block 3, District Lot 1491,  Plan 8388 (north side of Highway 101 between  Blower and Tyson Roads) be rezoned from  Residential 3 (R-3) to Public Assembly 1 (PA-1).  The intent of this bylaw is to facilitate the construction and development of a funeral home  on this property (complete with a 140-seat  ����� chapel, crematorium, mortuary and ancillary  rooms). The Lands that are the subject of Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 25-30 are the Lands  described in this paragraph 1.  2. The purpose of Official Community Plan  Amendment Bylaw No. 22-14 is to amend Official Community Plan Map designation for Lot  5, Block 3, District Lot 1491, Plan 8388 [north  side of Highway 101 between Blower and Tyson  Roads) from Residential to Public Institutional.  The intent of this bylaw is to facilitate the construction and development of a funeral home  on this property (complete with a 140-seat  chapel, crematorium, mortuary and ancillary  rooms). The Lands that are the subject of Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw No.  22-14 are the Lands described in this paragraph  The above is a synopsis of the Bylaws and is not  deemed to be an interpretation thereof. Copies of  the above Bylaws are available for inspection at the  District of Sechelt Municipal Hall, 5545 Inlet Avenue,  Sechelt, B.C., Monday through Friday, excepting  statutory holidays, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. from March  18th, 1991, to April 3rd, 1991.

The next day, at the prompting of SCRD Director Jeremy  Frith, the Economic Development Commission passed a  resolution to write to Minister  of Forests Claude Richmond requesting lhal logging be deferred in the sludy area until the  LRUP has concluded. The  Regional Dislricl will be asked  lo endorse the letter.  A lengthy discussion revolved  around the issue of compensation. Chris Ortner of Interior  pointed out that previously  discussed alternatives, a cut-  block in the Lions Lake area,  and golf club land in Roberts  Creek, were still uncertain.  "There is a poor quality of  timber in those cut blocks," he  said. "Lions Lake is the subject  of a park proposal and  shouldn't be thought of as an  alternative lo Edwards Lake."  "The golf course is not a sure  thing. Il is Crown Land and  hinges on the Regional District  coordinating a land trade between MacMillan Bloedel and  the Crown. So far they haven't  been successful."  Chuck Weatherill said that  any consideration of compensation must also lake into account  the employees of the logging  companies, "the guys who have  mortgage payments every  month and a family to  support."  Roger Lagasse, of the  Tetrahedron Watershed  Alliance, stressed the importance of protecting the area as a  source of water. "We're not  going to trade off our water  quality for a few jobs," he  declared.  ^        Our tiny jlore is  shopper friendly A prices  are down to earth.  Also submitted at the March  20 meeting was a sub-committee  report that outlined terms of  reference for the study.

An engaging drama which  had its original production on  Broadway, Precious Sons is an  autobiographical drama about a  family struggling lo make it  economically in the late 1940's  in Chicago. The three principal  characters ate Fred Small and  his wife Bea and Iheir younger  sou Freddy. Fred has a chance  of a promotion which would  mean uprooting the family and  moving to another city. Freddy  yearns to be a professional actor  but his lather wants him lo  finish high school and go lo college.  For ihis reader, Ihe lowering  figure in the play is the mother  Ilea. Harrassed and put upon,  she nonetheless is the fulcrum  upon which the family balances  and who plays the pivotal role  in determining the future of all  concerned.  Beneath this deceptively normal surface, as is Hue perhaps  under all deceptively normal  surfaces, emotional currents run  deep and dark. In reviewing the  original production, News-  week's reviewer said: "This  seemingly innocuous play turns  oul to contain an emotional  force that approaches terror."  Terry Weatherill, long time  theatre activist on the Sunshine  Coast, steps up from supporting  roles to take on the demanding  role of Fred Small, the father.  Alice Albrecht, also a frequent  performer on local stages, will  play Bea and 15-year old Chad  Bourgo, a Grade Nine student  at Elphinstone Secondary  School, plays Freddy. Allistair  Basse, as the elder brother, and  Cindy Harvey as his girlfriend,  round out the cast. The latter  are both 17-year olds in Grade  Twelve at Chatelech Secondary.  Besides his stellar work as a  director, Pomfret will be  remembered for his work in the  Betty Keller directed Utile  Foxes in ihe mid-eighties and  most recently for his starring  role in the highly acclaimed The  Diviners, directed by Ted Price.  Precious Sons will be staged  at Roberls Creek Hall Friday-  Saturday, April 5 and 6 with a  matinee performance on Sunday, April 7. These performances will be followed by four  more on Wednesday through  .Saturday, April 10-13. Evening  performance at 8 pm, matinee  at 2 pm.  Precious Sons is billed as an  adult comedy with coarse  language. Parental guidance is  recommended.

In addition to these  assets, ihe superb food keeps us coming back.  Our usual favourite, the Omega Special Pizza, is a heavenly creation; pepperoni, bacon, mushrooms, shrimp, pineapple, green pepper, cheese and zesty  tomato sauce mounted upon a perfect crust. It is, in my opinion, absolutely  the best pizza on the Sunshine Coast. (The large size, 14 inches, is only $13.95)  On a recent visit, however, we decided to try something different. My husband opied for ihe Special of the Day, Prime Rib, $16.95. The beef was cooked to perfection, and the accompanying green salad, potato, vegetables and  garlic bread conquered his healthy appetite.  I chose the lasagna ($7.95 including green salad and garlic bread).  Smothered with gooey cheese, it was delicious; just the right blend of herbs  and seasonings. The tangy house dressing was the perfect compliment to the  tossed green salad, and the bread was nice and garlicky.  The Omega has a large menu selection. There are 29 different pizza combinations; many pasta and specialty selections; charbroiled steaks (Grade 'A'  beef); seafood; and there's always at least one special of the day. (They're also  open for lunch; 11:30 am to 3 pm with a special menu.)  Prices are reasonable, portions are generous, and the food is "insanely  greal"!

The purpose of  many of the changes are to  make the game more exciting  for television viewers. These  suggested changes will alter the  game so if you have strong feelings about any of the proposed  changes, let the curling association know. I 1  -Some of the more radical'^  changes are the free guard zone,  the choice of last rock in thr���|  first or sixth end, banning  brushes and returning to corn  brooms.  If you want to know more  about the proposed changes,  you can get the curling newsletter which is at the club. The  newsletter also gives some of the  advantages and disadvantages  of each rule change.  The wind-up dinner and  dance will take place at the  Cedars Inn banquet room on  Saturday April 6 at 6:30 pm. If  you are a curler from any of the  leagues, your ticket has been  prepaid and can be picked up  from John at the club.  Extra tickets are available for  guests at $20 each. Invite a  friend if you like, but check  with John to make sure there is  room for an extra person.  The Winter Club will be  holding its Annual General  Meeting and Election of officers  on Wednesday March 27 at 8  pm in the lounge at the Gibsons  Winter Club. There are openings for three directors for a two  year term, three for a one year  term as well as for a President,  Vice-President and a Secretary  and a Treasurer. If you are interested in running for office or  if you know of someone who is,  please contact Larry Penonzek  at 886-9134.  This would also be a good  opportunity to let the executive  know how you feel about the  proposed rule changes so they  dan pass along this club's feelings to the BC Curling Association.

Pender Harbour isn't so much a place, as  it is a collection of diverse communities,  tven longtime residents along the Sunshine  Coast tend to lose sight of this fact, targeting that "Pender Harbour" includes, at  least psychologically speaking, Francis  Peninsula, Madeira Park, Kleindale,  Garden Bay and Irvines Landing.  The rapid population growth currently  being experienced by the rest of the coast  has not bypassed Pender Harbour. The increase in permanent residents in the area has  mfv"?b'y Ifd io a higher demand on  established businesses, and a concommitant  need for more services. As a result, business  interests in the Pender area are expanding  rapidly (two new businesses and one major  expansion currently), not only geared to serving the consumer but offering him or her a  broader range of goods and services.  'we don't want to drive to Sechelt for a  pair of socks anymore", said one resident  half-scriously, while local business people  still worry that too much potential business  might be "leaving the area." Although  lounsm, chiefly resorts and sports fishing,  has been a mainstay of the Pender economy  lor many years, the latest signs of commercial diversification are seen as positive by  most. '  Pender area residents have long felt and  expressed a strong sense of community  spirit, no more obvious than in the success  ot their recent campaign to provide their  Volunteer Fire Department with the Jaws of  Life. An on-going fund-raising drive to provide for an expansion of the local medical  clinic is also well under way. As a consequence of the mosaic-like geography of the  area, with the population being quite  dispersed, "pulling together" to effect a  self-supporting community has proven to  be no easy task.  Pender Harbour is not only growing, but  will soon be increasingly accessible, as a  result ol current improvements being made  -^on Highway 101. While some residents of  the area are looking forward to the day  when "there's nothing but straight, high-  grade highway all the way to Earl's Cove",  others are not pleased with the idea of "taking all the kinks out of the natural beauty."  A collateral issue, most especially to  Pender business types, involves signage.  The Ministry of Transportation and  Highways has been removing billboards  and signs from highways all over the province, in line with a policy to eliminate  signage which was not being maintained,  becoming eyesores, or causing hazards,  such as the danger posed when the driving  public stopped to read them.  As of December 31, all private signage  fronting on Highway 101 in the Pender  Harbour area was removed and replaced  with the generic blue Tourism/Highways  signs. However, business people, especially  those operating in out-of-the-way locations,  are afraid their messages won't be specific  enough.  According to one businessman who requested anonymity, "there aren't any  business hours, names or phone numbers  (on the signs)", he complained, expressing  concern that "People may drive all the way  lo Garden Bay only to find the Inn is full or  the store closed."  The generic signs don't seem to give the  travelling public an especially good idea of  what to expect. This tourist season will be  the first with the new system in place, and  some people in Pender are afraid of what  negative effects might be in store for the  area's economy.

Coast News, March 25,1991  GIBSONS BRIEFS  Most commercial establishments in Lower Gibsons are  zoned C5 and are required to provide a minimum number  of off street parking spaces for their customers, but there  is one area on ihe water side of Marine Drive between  Gramma's Pub and a point opposite Jack's Lane, where it  would be physically impossible lo provide parking on the  steep, narrow lots.  For some lime ihis small area has been designated as C4  /oning, the only such zone in the town which, unlike the  CJ zoning, does nol require the merchants to provide  parking spaces.  At lasl week's planning meeting, Planner Rob Buchan,  anticipating possible inieresi from purchasers of two emp-  ly lots north of ihe Mariners' Restaurant, suggested that in  order to offset an unfair advantage an amendment be  made in ihe C4 zoning requiring Ihe same parking regulations as C5, council agreed and the amendment is being  drafted.  HOLLYWOOD HERE  In a 'sister-city' arrangement, Vancouver and Los  Angeles have a mutual interest system operating whereby  film producers from California visit BC to scout oul  suitable locations for film making.  Last September, Gibsons was on the itinerary, and, as  Planner Rob Buchan reported to Gibsons Council, the trip  resulted in a tentative commitment by Circle Productions  lo film L.R. Wright's award winning book, "The  Suspeel" in BC, wilh many of the scenes to be shot on the  Sunshine Coast.  This May the film mission will be visiting BC again for  live days, and ai lasl week's council meeting Gibsons'  aldermen approved a plan thai would see Ihe group of  aboul 75 people from all phases of the film industry being  enlerlained by a cruise on Ihe yachl Gulf Stream II, with a  stopover in Gibsons for a salmon barbeque hosted by Gibsons Council.

Not too far beyond Hell's  Gate, the highway switches to  the western bank of the river  across the Alexandra Bridge.  Oddly   enough,   the   former  bridge is still standing several  hundred feet upriver. We decide  to check out this anomaly.  Superceded  by cleverer technology  the castaway span still  stands  joining two fragments of  unused road  once a sterling  accomplishment  now an anachronism  like something after a  nuclear war  when civilization has  tumbled  Graduation Day graffiti  autographs the approaches  like all the pristine rocks  and cliffs  they've sullied wilh spray  cans  bul Ihe bridge stands brave  leading from nowhere lo  nowhere  spanning a renegade river  to no practical end  Across that flood-run now  is only an Indian  fish trap  the shore reverts lo former  purposes  You pick wild strawberries  by a wild orchard of  cherry trees  I kiss your strawberry lips  and hold you close  at Ihe dead span's centre  while Ihe muddy torrent  rolls beneath us  and Simon Fraser's ghosl  laughs reasonably from  Ihe cliffs.  The rest of our return  journey is largely uneventful.  We make a brief slop at Yale  and then head for the Coast.  This story however, has a  curious epilogue.  Jusl a blink of a town  ' a clutch of farms "  a crackerbarrel store  drowsing by a Unless river  not a bad place lo grow up  in perhaps  hardly a high poinl  on anyone's journey  yet the odd name slicks  in my mind  Back in the Alcazar Hotel  days later  I sip an inflationary beer  as the minules lo bus-lime  lick by  A redneck insults a black  a Jack Balance junkie gets  bounced  a small loquacious shabby  man  sils down al Ihe next table  "Jusl got in from Medicine  Hal" he announces  I'm a farmer, carpenter,  sawmill hand  "Lookin' to find my  brother  Lives in some little burg  called Grindrod"  Two weeks before  I couldn 'I have helped him  an inch  now I even have a  government map  Like a tourist guide, I show  him Ihe way  He leaves wilh terse thanks  to search for unknown  people  in a town I have only  glimpsed  I imagine him shambling  drunkenly  unexpected, possibly  unwanted  into obscure Grindrod  expounding windily  in the crackerbarrel store  increasing ihe population  by one  beside lhal listless river.

Unlike last year's highly successful race which saw over 200  participants cross the Strait  from Nanaimo to Sechell, Ihis  August's event will begin in  Sechell and wind up ai Hammond Bay, jusl north of  Nanaimo.  "It's more than just a sporting event," noted Yacub, explaining the importance of the  marathon to the SSGA's ongoing campaign keyed to raising  public awareness of the plight  of the Strait. "It provides an  opportunity to bring attention  lo the issues, plus, it gets people  out on the water. It's a celebration of what we're working to  preserve."  Yacub and MacBride expect  at least 400 to take pari in the  marathon, which will kick off  from an as yet undetermined  Sechelt location.

All  work guaranteed. 886-4903. #13  will set out at first light, with  paddlers leaving shortly  thereafter for the grueling, 26  kilometre crossing. All participants will be accompanied  by larger boats acting as "safety  escorts".  Swimmers and paddlers will  be raising pledges for their  crossing, with accrued monies  going to the coffers of the  SGSA. Following their watery  trek, marathoners will camp  overnight on Newcastle Island  (a provincial park near  Nanaimo providing excellent  anchorage for escort vehicles),  where they will "share food and  music, swap stories of the crossing, relax and socialize."  "We wanled things lo be  low-key and folksy this year,"  said Yacub, in partial explanation of why last year's fair (held  on the Indian Band's playing  field) will not be repeated.  "Last year we tried to do loo  much. The fair wasn't commercially successful. Instead, it'll be  a celebration for people involved wilh the marathon," Yacub  told the Coasl News, adding  lhal, "The public is, of course,  welcome."  When asked how he fell some  people on the Sunshine Coasl  might react upon hearing thai  their area will nol host the  marathon's finale, Yacub was  philosophical. "Some people  will be disappointed at the race  going the other way, bul I suggest they come to the island and  see our end of things."  The originator of the "Save  Georgia Strait Marathon" concept, the 47 year old Yacub  noted that (traditionally) the  swim has, "always gone from  Nanaimo lo Sechell." Back in  1967, then Nanaimo Mayor  Frank Ney and swimmer Mike  Powley (who still holds Ihe  record with his nine hour and 23  minute dash that year) pursued  a vision which inspired a  Nanaimo lifeguard Ihe year  before.  Chronicles Yacub: "Barry  Finch was silting on the beach  at Nanaimo, just looking al the  mainland (Sechelt). He decided  to try the swim, and I swam  part of the way with him as  pacer. Barry made it halfway."  "Well, Powley figures he can  do it���he's quite sure of  himself. Six other swimmers  started out with him in '67,  after he'd got hold of Frank  Ney and roped me into doing it.  Only me and Powley made it.  My time was II hours, five  minutes." Last year 25 year old  Fin Moody came within three  minutes of Powley's 24 year  record, and plans to beat it in  1991.  Laurie MacBride said that experienced skippers and crews  are needed as safety escorts. She  and Ihe other organizers  estimate that "about 60 vessels"  (motorized or with reliable auxiliary power) will be required,  large enough to pull a swimmer  or paddier aboard in an  emergency. Three to six boats  with masthead strobe lights and  Satnav or Loran, which can  maintain a steady position in  order lo keep marathoners on  course, are also being sought.  One of the unquestioned  "stars" of lasl year's event was  the "Paper Buoy", a craft  made mostly of recycled  materials (including hundreds  of paper bags) built by a  volunteer crew of some dozen  individuals under Ihe direction  of Larry Westlake.  Westlake is already at work  on plans for a new vessel, this  time one made entirely of  "recycled or salvaged  materials." Dubbed Ihe "Double Bubble", Westlake explains,  "It'll be a two-seater, and will  involve Ihe use of some six litres  of used chewing gum���donations of same which I now officially invite chewers to begin  stockpiling for the project."  As for the SGSA bursting  Sechelt's bubble with Ihe reversed race direction, Westlake the  participant is not at all unhappy. "Last year the Friday night  campsite at Piper's Lagoon was  noisy, rowdy, disorganized  ���and hardly anyone got any  sleep. This is not conducive to  either safety or performance.  But this year I'll be able to sleep  in my own bed and won't have  lo carry camping gear in the  boat."  "The new arrangements,"  suggested Westlake, "should  work to the advantage of the  Sunshine Coast participants."
