 Creek fears clearcut logging  The Sunshine Coast Raging Grannies brought * light touch to a serious subject,���but their message  wis the same,���'no clearcut logging In our backyard'. See story. -Rose Mchobm photo  by Rote Ntchoboa  The community hall in  Roberts Creek was packed last  Wednesday night as residents  gathered to discuss Forestry  plans for logging in the upper  reaches of the community.  The organizing group, the  Concerned Coasl Residents,  had invited Barry Mountain,  District Manager of Forestry, to  take part in the meeting, but he  declined the invitation. Apparently, some members of  Forestry were in the audience,  but they did not take part in the  proceedings.  In her opening statements  Roberts Creek Community  Association Vice-Chairman  Diana Zornes reminded Ihe audience that in 1986 a similar  meeting had been called to  discuss the same issues that are  at stake now. Zornes said that  questions raised in 1986 about  alternate forms of logging,  spawning grounds, congested  creeks,   massive  debris  left  behind after logging operations,  still remain unanswered.  "What we're asking for here  tonight," said Maria MacCart-  ney, "is community involvement in forestry, ... real public  involvement in making decisions that affect our community."  MacCartney conceded that  Forestry had, in the past,  responded to public pressure.  "What they need to know to act  on a proposal from the community," she said, "is that they  will have large scale public support. Therefore we must all,  very clearly, let them know  what we want."  The Concerned Citizens have  prepared a paper outlining their  position on logging in the Small  Business Enterprise Program  (SBF.P). They are unequivocally  opposed to clearcut logging,  and, said Donna Shugar, "our  position ... is non-negotiable.  "Our preference is to declare  a moratorium on all logging in  our watershed, but we under  stand the role logging plays in  our economy,...so we are reluctantly willing to consider an option that would allow a very  conservative selective or partial  cutting system with very stringent guidelines."  The Concerned Citizens commissioned professional forester  Mark Wareing to prepare an  alternate proposal for logging  the cut blocks in the SBEP.  Enlarging on his written proposal, Wareing told the audience that the 80 year old  naturally regenerated forest on  the Coast that came back after  the disastrous 1910 Are is  basically an immature forest.  "It's still full of potential,"  he said. "What we should be  looking at is a 180 year cycle. If  selective logging were to take  place this forest would be good  for at least another 100 years of  useful productive work, in  terms of providing jobs in logging, protecting water supplies,  Please turn to page 11  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast    25'per copy on news stands February 18,1991      Volume 45     Issue 7  Wilson Attacked  Liberal leader offers defense  by Jan Michael Sherman  Reeling under a series of Vancouver Sun articles which have  called his leadership of the provincial Liberal Party, as well as  his own ethics and judgement,  into serious question, Cordon  Wilson labelled the investigative  expose "real National Enquirer  stuff...tripe."  During an exclusive telephone  interview with f he Coast News,"  Wilson responded to charges  that he entered into fund-raising  agreements on behalf of the  Liberal Party without prosier  authority.  "There's always a grain of  truth in every story," he noted,  referring to all the Sun's allegations. "We had to put in place  an active fund-raising...campaign...to retire our debt. And  the leader of the provincial party has the right to bring in a  fund-raiser (on his own authority)."  Asked about the charge that  he had personally incurred  thousands of dollars in questionable expenses which were  billed to the party, Wilson  replied with some derision.  "That is so laughable it is  unbelievable! Number one, I'm  the only unpaid Liberal leader  in the country! Number two, in,  'tSrrrt's of my expenses, I get paid  (only) when the party can afford it. And the party owes me  money...All expenditures coming out of the leader's office  have been reviewed and approved by the Financial Management Committee."  In the Sun's most recent article of February IS, it is alleged  that "fiscal allegations" have  sparked a "Wilson revolt"  within his party.  "There is no conspiracy or  revolt within the BC Liberal  Sechelt bomb scare  Worshippers for Sunday morning services at the Charch ot  the Holy Family on Cowrie Street in Sechelt had the peace of  their Sunday morning wrecked by a report of a 'bomb' attached to one of the pillars of their church.  After the RCMP had evacuated and cordoned off the area,  Cpl. Tom Arnet of the Sechelt RCMP reported that two  13-year old boys were discovered in the vicinity with 'a very  realistic looking device'. They had apparently 'sneaked back'  and removed the device once the area was cordoned off.  Serious consideration was given to calling in the Bomb  Disposal Unit in Vancouver before it was determined the  device was a fake.

"I  fully accept that neither the  NDP nor the Socreds want a  made-in-BC Liberal party to  succeed. The closer we get to the  election, the dirtier things are  going to get."  Wilson   said    he    was  thoroughly convinced that pure  politics is what lies behind the  current troubles he is attempting  . to weather. -- .*.  "These kinds of tactics are  going to be used again and  again," he predicted. "We have  an excellent chance of winning  five to six seats���possibly even  eight to 10 seats���and holding  the balance of power in the next  government. They (Socreds and  NDP) simply don't want us in  the game."  Wilson was asked if���and  when���he intended to formally  answer the charges made  against him by the Vancouver  Sun.  "If I don't do it this week,  then certainly I will at the  party's convention in March.  There will be an exhaustive  report which will completely exonerate me."  Wilson was silent for a moment. Then he said, "Look at it  this way: We used to be ignored. Then we were a joke.  Now we're being attacked. We  must be doing something  right."  Teachers  to vote on  contract  by Joel Johnstone  Teachers on the Sunshine  Coast will vote this Thursday  evening to ratify or reject a  complete contract agreement,  minus only a compensation  package.  Details on the proposed  "compensation stabilization  program" apparently are complete at the provincial level, but  number-crunching at the local  level has yet to catch up with the  negotiation process here on the  Sunshine Coast.  Nevertheless, says Leif  Mjanes, bargaining chairman  for the Sunshine Coast Teachers' Association, the agreement  reached is fair to both teachers  and the school district.  "I don't foresee any difficulties on ratifying this agreement," he said, adding that the  long hard hours at the  negotiating table concluded  with an agreement within current porvincial standards.

The agreement, signed by  Chief Tom Paul and Minister of  Indian Affairs Tom Siddon,  will give the band a lump sum  of $2.4 million for 1991, with  that amount being adjusted annually, until 19%, to reflect  changes in band population and  costs of living.  The five year agreement is the  second such for the Sechelt  Band since becoming the first  native community in Canada to  achieve self government in  1986. Under the self government agreement, the band was  set up as a legal entity, with the  power to establish its own  government and constitution,  and assume responsibility  among other things for the  management of band lands,  control of band education,  social welfare and health services.  The whole idea behind the  agreement, according to Tom  Paul, is to achieve a self-reliant  autonomy for the band through  self government. Tom Siddon  echoed this at the meeting.  "The Sechelt Indian Band has  clearly demonstrated that community self government can be  achieved successfully through  sincere and cooperative negotiation."  Before Siddon made his  scheduled appearance at the  band headquarters last Wednesday morning, Chief Paul  speculated on the possibility  that the Indian Affairs Minister  would bring good news on the  band's $34 million land claim  registered with the federal and  provincial governments.  The land claim, originally  made in 1984, is a request for a  cash settlement for traditional  band territories that are now  used and owned by non-native  populations.  Paul based his speculation  that there might be more to Sid-  don's visit than signing the self-  government agreement on the  fact that he didn't think it was  absolutely necessary for the  Minister of Indian Affairs to fly  all the way from Ottawa just to  sign that agreement. "They  could fax us the agreement,  we'd sign it and fax it back," he  said.  However, at the signing  ceremony, Siddon was quick to  squelch this hope. He said that  not enough proof had been  given to make it absolutely clear  that the lands in question were  the historical communal areas  of the band's ancestors.  When asked if and when he  foresaw a claim settlement, Siddon was both vague and optimistic, saying that lie  "...would like to see something  done before the end of the year,  but to try to give an exact date  would be irresponsible."

And with good reason. In a day and age  when citizens have to resort to legal action to avail  themselves of information which should be automatically  available, it is hard not to look askance whenever governmental bodies seek to conceal any of their actions or  deliberations.  Sometimes, however, such concealment is necessary.  Going 'in camera'���closing certain meetings to public and  media���is a legitimate tool, an instrument which, when  employed cautiously and judiciously, serves important  ends.  As a general understanding, there are three areas where  'in camera' deliberation is considered acceptable and  necessary. In matters dealing with legal issues, personnel,  or the acquisition of property, it is obvious that private  discussion and deliberation may be necessary to ensure  free and frank input and exchange of views, to say nothing  of protecting reputations where warranted.  But a tool can often be used as a weapon. In the case of  improper or cynical application of the 'in camera' procedure, the victim is always the public's right to know and  the quality of individual and collective freedoms.  Periodically there is some abuse of the 'in camera' process, and it is vital that when this occurs it is quickly identified and dealt with by all parties concerned. The media is  the primary vehicle whereby the greatest part of a community finds out whether or not its wishes are being  observed by government.  And given its unique position "riding point", the media  is usually called on to blow the whistle on this kind of  abuse, regardless of whatever good intentions might lie  behind it.  We now consider the whistle blown on the Sunshine  Coast, and all relevant entities put on notice.  Resign, Bill  The kindest interpretation of the embarassing saga of  the sale of Fantasy Gardens is that the premier simply does  not understand conflict of interest.  Even this, however, does not justify what appears to be  repeated falsehoods on the subject.  Bill Vander Zalm should resign. It is enough that his  charm won one election. It is too much that his mendacity  should lose a second. The voters of British Columbia must  be given a choice in the next election more meaningful that  whether one is for or against one man.  -from our files ���  We Remember When  5 YEARS AGO  A 10 year forestry program to log the lower slopes of  Mt. Elphinstone was discussed at a forum in Roberts  Creek. Mike Lister, operations supervisor for the  Sechelt area said that 55,000 cubic metres of timber Will  be taken out annually from the Sechelt Forest District,  of which 30,000 cubic metres will come from the Mt.  Elphinstone area.  10 YEARS AQO  Approaching his 90th birthday, Jack Mayne is pictured on the front page of the Coast Newt. He lives in  the home he purchased in 1929 at the corner of Cowrie  Street and Inlet Avenue.  The long standing controversy of bulk storage sites  for flammable fuels on the Sunshine Coast resurfaced  last week. Several fuel companies came under the close  scrutiny of Inspector V. Atkinson from the Division of  Fire Safety, Office of the Fire Commission.  20 YEARS AQO  Aldermen Ben Lang and Ted Osborne oppose plans  for the expansion of the Municipal Hall in Sechelt. They  both agree that the money can be spent better  elsewhere. Alderman Lang argues that Sechelt was  becoming a ghost town, implying that present facilities  now occupied by government offices when vacant  would add to present vacancies.  30 YEARS AQO  A mud bank which gave way, ruined the practically  new home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Jure on Gower Point  Road.  At the school board meeting, Dr. Plenderleith from  the Department of Education recommended the construction of the Langdale School instead of additional  classrooms to Gibsons Elementary School.  40 YEARS AQO  Halfmoon Bay will take its ever recurring "cut off"  question to the provincial cabinet, according to a decision made at a recent Liberal Association meeting.  Long a sore spot in the minds of residents, many applications have been made on behalf of a cutoff which  would save miles of bad mountain road, plus open up a  fine summer residence area.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  CarieaJs: 1 Vsar Hi; 8 Months 120; Portion r Yaar M0  what's there is history  Let's get the insignificantly  personal stuff out of the way  before we launch ourselves into  the main meat of what is, I  believe, a significant topic for  Gibsons and the entire Sunshine  Coast.  I did, for a stormy season,  myself live in the Old Inglis  House in the heart of Gibsons  Landing. We were at the time  three eccentric single males toiling inordinate hours at the Sunshine Coast News. The paper  had become embroiled in a  three-newspaper war when Dick  Proctor quarrelled with the  management of the Peninsula  Times and started to publish his  shopper.  "Deja vu," said Yogi Befra,  "all over again." The 'war' was  . not   of   the   Coast's "firs^  ' newspaper's devising, but inevitably we were drawn into the  battle for survival.  Ian Corrance, the photo-,  grapher, Henry Sum, the production manager and myself,  the editor, were sharing the rent  in the grand old house in  1977-78.  The old house had become  sadly rundown in the years it  had not housed the Inglis family  and the rent was a bargain.  If the interior was not what it  had been in its long hey-day as  medical centre for the entire  Coast and refuge to the  Woodsworth family, the place's  charm was a tangible and  magical thing. To be up early on  an early summer morning to  take tea on the porch of that  house and to watch the landing  stirring slowly to life is one of  the most indelible delights of  my 20 years on the Coast.  So much for the personal.  The time in the house and my  abiding interest in history drew  me to an appreciation of the old  house and its place in regional  and national history, that I  might not otherwise have had.  For most of the first half of  ihe twentieth century the house  was the home of Dr. Fred Inglis  who served the sparsely  populated Coast as its sole  medical practitioner for  decades. By horse and boat and  by motor bike and motor car  with the coming of roads, he  responded to intimations of  distress. What he couldn't fix  on the spot was dealt with in his  home which doubled as the  Coast's only medical centre.  If there is a heritage site on  the Sunshine Coast it has to be  the Inglis House for the role it  has played in the life of the  Coast people.  But more than that, when  J.S. Woodsworth's allegedly  pacifist views brought him into  conflict with the governors of  his parish in 1917, the house  was refuge to the man who was  to become known as one of the  great Canadians of the twentieth century, refuge to himself  and to his wife and five  children.  There were five Inglis  children, too, of comparative  ages and friendships were formed of that time around the end  of the First World War which  endure and are treasured to the  present day.  To that house came the pro  gressive Finns who farmed the  plateau above the landing. Such  as Jake Hinsa came for  philosophic discussions with the  doctor and the minister turned  longshoreman.  I would argue that if Regina  in 1922 saw the birth of the  CCF movement in Canada, its  conception was during the  philosophic discussions which  took place in the Inglis House. I  would argue further that, to  those with a sense of history and  a vision of the future, the house  is in fact a national heritage site.  Several points must be made:  the present owners deserve all  the praise in the world for taking over the old house after it  had stood empty an entire  winter and was nearly ruined.  Lovingly and with help from no  one, they restored it and  brought it back to dignified life.  Secondly, not everyone  shares the sense that this is a  regional and national treasure.  A conversation with the mayor  last week made it plain to me  that someone had his ear who  didn't think the house worth  saving. (I've been around long  enough to guess who.)  Those of us who love the  house and appreciate its unique  role in the history of this region  and this country must redouble  our efforts to persuade our  friends and neighbours,  regardless of religious or  political persuasion, that this  house is a more enduring adornment to the town of Gibsons  than the designation 'former  home of the Beachcombers'.  If the house is to be saved, a  wide-flung net must be cast  across this country. If many  contribute, much can be done.  Before that effort is made the  voices of negativity must be  answered and the visionless  minds opened. There must be  an effort made which precludes  dissension before we start.  We speak often and easily of  the quality of life that we enjoy.  If we are so busy enjoying it  that we let the treasures of the  past slip away undefended, we  will diminish ourselves more  than we know.

Robert Frost  (1874-1963)  ���     J\*Y  '  Sounds of February  by S. Nutter  Peter Gzowski was trilling  along on radio the other morning about the Toronto spring.  He now lives, it seems, up  around Lake Simcoe, some 60  miles north of Toronto, and he  had been out in his garden, and  lo there were crocuses pushing  up through the grasses, and it  was only February 10.  Damn. I went back and had a  look-see through my Dutch  window. We don't have  anything you could call a  garden by any stretch, but I am  practically on my neighbour's  and she has done a very pleasant  job. I gave the scene the old  satellite scan but really there  was not a hint at all. Some  possible beginning buds on a  distant lilac but that was the lot,  This indeed has not been our  winter.  I got to thinking of other  Februarys, other more satisfy-  ingly comparable Februarys,  and a sound came to mind. The  special crunch of overshoes on  well-packed late winter snow, at  maybe minus 20 degrees. This  was a particularly February  sound, from many Februarys,  in my case in Winnipeg back in  the thirties.  With the sound, for some  reason, a scene and a character.  Dr. Bjornsson, leader of the  Icelandic community, making  his stately way down Victor  Street in the morning to his  streetcar. Though also the  leading obstetrician in town, the  doctor would never drive a car.  I think the reason I think of  Bjornsson with this sound is  that Victor Street still had one  of those old wooden sidewalks.  It is perhaps the most  characteristic sound of late hard  winter, but to get the real  resonance you need the snow  packed hard at something under  minus 10 onto a seasoned old  wooden sidewalk.  (I once tried to explain it to a  soundman when finishing a film  in a studio. "It's a combination  of creak and squeak," I said. It  turned out more like a barndoor  and a bunch of mice.)  Abo there was a story to do  with the doctor and his morning  passage.   Being  the  leading  citizen in that area, and catching  always the same car, and there  being no question of course of  the doctor ever running for his  streetcar, the conductor, if  Bjornsson was late, would stop  at the foot of Victor and wait  for him. They said sometimes as  much as five minutes.  So a day comes when the doctor is half way down the street.  Fur hat squarely on head, fur  gauntleted mittens, calf-high  buckled overshoes squeaking  along. He hears the streetcar, it  appears, and without a falter  rattles right on by. The next day  the same thing.  The third day the doctor was  waiting at his stop, a taxi purring at his side. The streetcar  stopped and the doctor boarded. He removed his mit,  ploughed the conductor square  in the eye, got in his cab and  said, "Rupert Street Police Station please."  At the station he approached  the desk and said to the  sergeant, "I am Doctor Bjornsson. I have just hit a streetcar  conductor. How much will that  be?"  We got to meet Dr. Bjornsson through his daughter. He  was a widower and she was his  only child. She was not only  beauteous, but accomplished  and energetic and imbued with,  our enthusiasms for the social  changes of the thirties. Also she  had been his hostess since about  age 12.  It was Margaret of course  who invited us around, in our  late teens, to the big old frame  house on Victor Street.  Meetings, parties of course really, took place there, in '38/'39,  sometimes more than twice a  week.  The doctor was friendly but  on the other hand didn't really  involve in any way. He would,  sit by his fire reading his paper.  "Can I get you a drink, sir?"  you would say, whizzing by into  the kitchen.  But it is still his tread I think  of over the old Victor Street  sidewalk. Many times I have enjoyed, almost exulted in that  sound. February on the prairies  was a time when you could get  the impression that something  like iron was being put into the  soul.  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper  ^pi^o-T^.    w^P^"*^    ,.^5,^5^ Coast News, February 18,1991  ZetUtL to- tfu, Cditot  Reader  raps  columnist  Editor:  ' In   response   to   Janice  Leighton's article, February 4,  Coast News "Creek Logging  Concerns":  I would like to know what  qualifies Janice Leighton to  make allegations that logging in  this area will cause soil erosion,  poor water quality, and habitat  demolition. Does she hold a  degree in hydrology and the  science of water in relation to  the forest? Has she studied the  soil composition of this area?  Has she gathered information  regarding gradient and side  slopes, and compared this information with scientifically  prepared tables that would in  dicate site specific procedures? I  suspect not.  As far as "logging companies  rolling in to denude a few cut  blocks" goes, this type of inflammatory remark is clearly a  case of irresponsible reporting  and serves only to stampede  public concern. The truth of the  matter is that these cut blocks  have been designated to the  Small Business Forest Enterprise Program (SBEFP) which  provides smaller companies and  independent loggers an opportunity to harvest provincial  timber. This means that large  companies and multinational  corporations that hold large  forest tenures are ineligible to  bid.  It should be noted that any  areas proposed for development  are under a five year development plan that can be viewed by  the public upon request. Objections to logging should be made  known and are actually invited  within this five year planning  process.  The statement that,  "Forestry does not consider  deleterous effects on environment, including future trees,  people and other business," is  totally false. Much time, effort  and provincial money is spent  before an area is approved for  logging and all agencies, including the Ministry of Environment, Water Management, Fish and Wildlife (to  name a few) receive referrals, all  of which are reviewed by the  Chief Forester and the Regional  Manager before final approval  is given.  It is my hope that this letter  will help to inform some people  who are genuinely concerned as  to the state of our forests and  the way in which they are  managed, and not be construed  as a confrontational rebuttal.

Coast News, February 18,1991  Local takes environment award  Magazine  honours  Careless  by Rose Nicholson  For twenty years Ric Careless  has been working to preserve  the wilderness areas of British  Columbia. This month. Equinox magazine recognized this effort by awarding him the 1991  Equinox Citation for Environmental Achievement. With  the citation goes a cheque for  $5000 and a print by artist  Bruce Herchenrader.  In an interview with the  Coast News at his home perched on a hill in Lower Gibsons  overlooking Howe Sound,  Careless admitted he was "surprised and pleased" at "the  recognition by my peers" of his  many years of work.  "I got involved in land use  and planning in the early seventies when the first environmental awareness developed.  "There were many quite  hard, lean years when people  forgot about these values. It's  really only been since about  1986 that people have reawakened to what's happening.  What you're seeing here in Gibsons is happening all around  North America. It's really exciting."  One o\ Careless' main interests at the moment is cooperating in the fight to save the  Tatshenshini River in northern  BC which is being threatened by  a proposal to open a massive  copper mine in its valley.  "The 'Tat' is a wilderness  area that is of the calibre of the  Grand Canyon," he explained.  "It is considered to be North  America's wildest river and has  been recommended for national  park status by the highest international conservation organization in the world, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, which has  memberships   from   all   the  Environmentalist Ric Careless.  governments around the world.  It has been nominated by that  body as a World Heritage Site.  "The effort to protect the Tat  is truly continental. We are  working with people in  Washington DC, San Francisco, Colorado, Alaska,  eastern Canada, and, of course,  all the major (environmental)  organizations in BC. This is an  issue which is going to make  South Moresby look small."  As a Tourism Resource Planner, Careless looks at land and  ���Rose Nicholson photo  water needs of tourism,  "everything from protecting  scenic views to wild rivers and  coastlines to ensure that 'Supernatural BC stays natural,  ...what it takes from a resources  point of view lo make tourism  go.."  He works as a consultant to  both the provincial and the  federal governments, groups of  operators and any section of the  tourism industry that depends  on natural resources. "I now  am   mapping   the   tourism  resource for the whole BC  coast," he said.  "In the past, an area like the  Tatshenshini would probably  just have been mined and a road  put in, and we would have  discovered after the fact what  we'd lost.  "In some key tourism areas  we have been able to show that  more can be made in tourism,  both in money and in employment, than in logging or mining.  "What we're trying to do is  show how you can have the  various industries mixed  together, so we're not talking  about eliminating forestry, just  as I don't think we should be  talking about eliminating  tourism.  "A lot of times, with careful  planning, you can have different activities happening on  the same site. We know though,  that there are some areas where  you have to let one or the other  go.  "People in logging don't  understand that tourism is now  the number one employer in BC  and the number two revenue  earner. It brought $2.5 billion  from outside the province last  year. That's real new money,  that's not money that comes  from cutting anything down or  digging anything out."  Careless got involved in the  early stages of the fight to save  the Tetrahedron, but although  other projects now have his attention, he feels it is "in good  hands."  He was critical of logging  practices here on the Coast. "I  was really concerned," he said.  "It didn't look to me that  forestry was addressing recreational values at all. It's the only  area round where the subalpine  is easily accessible. If we lose the  Tetrahedron, we simply have  nothing else.  "My belief is we are not doing as well here in forestry  techniques as they are in other  parts of the province. They have  to recognize other uses of the  land,  particularly  the  water-  Lube, Oil,  Filter  (INCLUDES GST)  |'ALL THROUGH FEBRUARY  ��� FREE Chassis Inspection  Some imported oil inters may cost extra  sheds. The water issue is  crucial."  Careless maintains that "the  number one value of this area  now is not logging, it is life  style." He says that the recent  unprecedented influx of people,  attracted to the Coast by the  lifestyle, has benefited  everyone.  "The vast majority of people  have benefited by the increased  value of their homes, and there  has been an increase in services.  The Coast is changing, and  what we have to be looking at is  how we protect the environmental quality.  "So much depends on the  way we handle it. We could  destroy the lifestyle, or we could  be sensible about it. We have  lots of choice on whether we  want to have all kinds of high-  rises and houses all over the  place, or whether we want to  have a quality lifestyle.  "There's a real community  here. You lose community -I've  seen this elsewhere - if growth  occurs too rapidly. People get  dislocated and the whole fabric  of community gets ripped apart.  "1 don't think we're completely helpless and we're going  to have the whole idea of this  area looking like Delta or Richmond. I think that's really irresponsible.  "It has to start in local communities and neighbourhoods  where people say, - 'yes, there is  an alternative for a higher quality of lifestyle and it's worth  something to try and retain it'."

Donna Shugar and  Maria McCartney from Concerned Coast Residents expressed their concerns about their  watersheds on Clough Creek  and Wilson Creek respectively.  A registered professional  forester, Mark Wareing,  evaluated the cutblocks slated  for clearcutting as an immature  forest in need of thinning (selective logging).  He mentioned the amount of  money invested in the clearcut  method in slash burning, planting and herbicides to name a  few and how there was no  return on this considerable investment for over 50 years. This  ignores the costs of impoverishing the ecosystem by  erosion, sun scorching, lack of  returned nutrients and limiting  genetic stock with monoculture.  His professional advice on appropriate logging was to thin,  thin, and thin again. He showed  slides of various thinning  methods including cable logging.  Doug Gook, director of  Caribou Horse Loggers  Association, a selective logging  co-op in the Quesnel area, also  spoke. With slides he showed  how horse and man thins on an  average 35 per cent of the trees  in an area using narrow trails.  Logs are collected in small  loading areas near a road for access to self-loading logging  trucks. Fallen trees are limbed  on site and the limbs are left to  enrich the soil. Tree cover remains to continue to shelter a  variety of species of plants and  animals left unharmed. Lack of  selective logging contracts limits  the growth of this co-op.  Although the people present  predominantly supported a  wholistic approach to logging, a  range of statements and questions were heard from the floor.  The Sunshine Coast Raging  Grannies and John Marion  entertained with suitable music.  It was agreed to seek another  community meeting for further  information and discussion.  POTTERY SHOP  Elaine Futterman has been  throwing pots for some time  now, selling them out of her  home and at local fairs. Her  hobby became her business and  her business overtook her home  and it became clear a choice between home and business was  necessary. So she and her husband Mike Allegretti decided to  build a potting studio with a  retail showroom next to the  house at 1738 Lockyer Road.  The studio, with its light  spacious atmosphere and extensive storage shelves provides the  perfect new home for the potting wheel and three kilns  necessary for Elaine's production needs. The finished pottery  is beautifully displayed for sale  in the showroom. Mingling har-'  moniously with the blues and  beiges of her glazes are the  wooden shelves, the oak flooring, and the tiles around the  wood stove. Special orders and  dinner sets are available. Look  for a grand opening soon.  LIBRARY NOTES  We would like to draw your  attention to some exceptionally  timely additions to the library.

Local  constables Boray and Murphy drove to Regina to attend Joel's  graduation.  by Geoqe Cooper, MMSM  Have you, Mr. and Mrs.  Resident, had occasion in the  past year or so to think about  parks on our Sunshine Coast?  Or our play fields? Or the roofed recreation facilities?  At this very moment each of  the four local governments has  for its consideration a consultant's report and their recommendations for action on this  matter.  Foremost in the recommendations is this one: that the four  governments jointly initiate the  establishing of a Parks and  Recreation Commission to  oversee leisure services on the  whole of the Sunshine Coast.  How this will affect community  commissions already in operation is still to be worked out. In  an understanding and give-and-  take way, it is hoped.  Other recommendations in  this Action Plan deal with other  aspects of recreation; for example, play fields and school  fields, youth centres, trails, and  waterfront access.  Besides all this in the foregoing, the Action Plan presents  some recommendations on the  siting of some indoor facilities  that will require some very sensitive handling by all concerned.  Because it is serving the user  public fairly adequately despite  the grumbling, the Plan leaves  well enough alone in the case of  the arena. But an aquatic center  is another matter that leaves the  population of Sechelt and Gibsons not well enough served.  The Plan sees the area of Cliff  Gilker park as one central to the  region of Sechelt-Gibsons and  gives it a priority in its first term  of projects to be done; namely  in the first one to five years of  the implementation of the Plan.  The Action Plan recognizes  the interest each community has  in having its own facilities such  as pool and arena, but points  out that these facilities are costly  and really require a larger  region to serve to be efficient in  operational costs and in convenience to users.  The Action Plan sees several  sites for various other major  facilities; i.e. Ted Dixon Park,  Block 7 site, Gibsons Recreational complex, and Pender  Harbour Aquatic Centre. All  this in consultation, of course,  with local and regional governments.  The Plan does, however, spell  out their specific recommendations for the southern end of the  Coast... "That if new regional  indoor facilities are developed  on the Sunshine Coast that they  be situated centrally between  Gibsons and Sechelt in the Cliff  Gilker Park area." (page 101)  It should be noted at this  point that the Regional District  with admirable foresight, has  already a number of parks  developed and sites ready for  more, including Kathryn  (���Catherine) Lake. Their Parks  Guide folder lists 33 parks, both  local and provincial, on our  Sunshine Coast.  Although a commission administers the Gibsons Pool and  another the play fields for the  Gibsons and nearby electoral  areas, having a coast-wide commission to administer all parks  and play fields should not cause  any protest, surely. Such a commission could spread the costs  equitably throughout the Coast  so that all pay a fair share.  The pool and the arena are  quite distinct considerations and  could be thorny problems. Let  them be examined thoroughly  and calmly to find the present  and future direction best to  follow.  The Action Plan notes that in  all aspects of recreation we can  as a Coast-wide region: do  nothing; upgrade the existing  facilities; or implement the Plan  over the next 10 years.  In the short term (one to five  years) youth facilities, an  aquatic center for Sechelt-  Gibsons, and the Kathryn Lake  development along with some  other projects are recommended.  In the middle term of six to  nine years, the following projects are recommended: additional play fields, a dry floor in  Gibsons Pool for a youth  center, waterfront access, and a  study of the life cycle of various  facilities. Estimated cost of the  short term is just under $4  million, and for the middle term  $3.5 million.  The Plan has a long term as  well as continuing park development including the competition  class play field in Connor Park.  Plans for the renovation of  Gibsons Pool have been put on  hold by the Pool Commission  to await the outcome of decisions jointly reached by the four  local governments on the Sunshine Coast.  Well, Mr. and Mrs. Resident,  if you have anything to say for  or against this Action Plan, say  it immediately while it is still in  its draft stage.  There are good reasons to  centralize, very good ones. If  the recent local news reports appear to scoff because an old and  good plan has been disinterred,  pay no attention. The Action  Plan demands our patient and  thorough consideration���our  future enjoyment depends upon  our present decisions.  For a complete view of what  this well-researched Plan  recommends, ask to look at a  copy at one of the local government offices.

Coalition of People with  Disabilities (BCCPD), formerly  known as the BC Coalition of  the Disabled. I am a member of  the Board as a representative of  DisAbled Women's Networks  of B.C. and Canada (DAWN-  BC). My association with  Sechelt Seniors' Branch 69 is an  aid to me as a representative to  BCCPD.  I met a person last year at a  province wide meeting of  DAWN. She has one of the  brightest minds I've encountered over the years. When  Mary Williams speaks, people  listen. At present she is Internal  Vice-President of the Coalition.  One of the amazing points  about Mary is that she was (and  I emphasize the word was) a  patient in Pearson Hospital.  For those of you, like myself,  not knowing about Pearson, it's  a facility for people who can't  care for themselves and have no  hope of getting better. We know  there are places like that, but we  can't see them and we are much  more comfortable without the  knowledge, I suppose.  I greeted Mary and as we  spoke and exchanged "how are  you's?", she stated that she had  a head cold. Mary has rriany  friends that see to her needs, as  she lives independently. It took  me several minutes to get my  head and heart back to the  agenda and the meeting that  was again in progress after our  break. Mary is a quadriplegic  on a portable respirator, and  propels her wheelchair by blowing into a pipe. Imagine not being able to put the kleenex to  your nose when you needed to  blowl I'll never again complain  about having a head cold. My  mind opened up and I realized  that people with arthritis in their  hands must suffer terribly when  they need to blow.

M5-5212  11k log house in Wilson  Creek is gone! I hope because  it's out of sight, it won't be out  of mind. Since I've lived on the  Sunshine Coast, which is coming onto 16 yean, it's always  been there, but I think I only  went into it once when it was  being used as an antique shop. I  always imagined it would make  a great craft and gift shop  something like the old house on  Cowrie where you could take  things on consignment.  I would like to see it reassembled in some park. Why  not incorporate it into the Rec  Centre they are talking about at  Gilker Park? I can see it as a gift  shop, a specialty museum, or  just a hospitality centre where a  person such as a driver could  sit quietly and read a book or  magazine while waiting for  passengers.  POLAR BEAR SWIM  It's too bad that the Polar  Jear Swim is moving to Sechelt.  I think Davis Bay is a much better place to have it, even with  the traffic problems it may have  caused. Once Teredo Street  becomes the highway there will  still be traffic problems.  1 think a vote of thanks has to  go out to everyone who made  the Polar Bear Swim in Davis  Bay such a success, and to the  Bella Beach and the previous  managers who were so enthusiastic about having it there.

CATCH 16  The target date for start up of  SECHELT SCENARIO  the Catch 16 Teen Club to be  held at the Wilson Creek Scout  Hall (located in Whitaker Park  across from St. John's United  Church) is Saturday, March 2.  A meeting is being held on  March 14, more definite details  will be forthcoming.  They are looking for adult  volunteers to act as chaperons.  They are also looking for donations of movies, games, books,  etc. The plan is to be open  Saturday nights then, depending on the number of  volunteers, Friday nights. Let's  WHERE ARE THE PEOPLE?  I sure would like some news  and views from the people in  Davis Bay! I would be happy to  put in good wishes for birthdays, anniversaries, get wells.  Let me know about meetings  that are coming up. I would  really like to hear from you. My  deadline is Thursday morning,  but if something unexpected  comes up after that, the paper is  very good about adding it to the  column.  St. Mary's 'mug-up' time  by Margaret Watt, 888-3364  It's mug-up time on Monday,  February 25, when the Auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital  holds its Annual Brown Bag  Lunch and Mug-Up at the  Sechelt Indian Band Hall.  This is when recognition is  given to the in-service hospital  volunteers who provide hair  care, library service, flower care  and assistance in Extended  Care. Alan Harbord, representing the Board of Trustees, Ted  Wright, Administrator, and Dr.  Kirstie Overhill, Chief of Staff,  will be in attendance.  The guest speaker, Dr. Rand  Rudland, has been asked to  outline the on-going develop  ment of the Pediatric Asthmatic  Clinic on the Sunshine Coast.  Being environmentally conscious, Auxiliary members are  asked to bring their own mugs  and Brown Bag lunch, but  beverages will be provided.  Registration starts at 10:45  AM, meeting at II AM, and  lunch at 12 Noon. All Auxiliary  members from Pender Harbour  to Hopkins are invited to attend  and bring a friend.

You can buy tickets at this  time from the parents at the  arena only during class time.  After the week of February 25,  the tickets can be had from  Pastimes or Zippers in Sechelt,  Silks & Lace in Gibsons, and  Oaktree Market in Madeira  Park. The shows���two this  year���will be on March 10, but  more about that in a later column.  i-vrTfflBlT*^^  fpa��,K5S��^^  m  (1991 Autoplan Changes  PREMIUMS  Who pays more?Why?  Based on past experience and  projections, ICBC requires  4.5 per cent more premium  income in 1991 -3 percent to  pay for claims and improved  Autoplan benefits, plus 1.5  per cent to offset the impact  of the federal Goods and  Services Tax.  Each year. ICBC  determines which coverages,  territories and vehicle uses  have increased or decreased  in relative claims cost.  If your premium is changed  more lhan the average, it is  because of the various factors  which affect insurance rating:  the value, age and use of your  vehicle, where you live, what  coverage you choose and  where you are on the Claim-  Rated Scale.  Compulsory Coverage  The largest part of your basic  Autoplan insurance is made  up of liability coverage (to  protect you if claims are  brought against you by  others) and No-Fault Accident coverage. Premiums for  these coverages, including  extended liability, are being  increased, on a province-wide  average, by 4 per cent for  claim-free motorists. As we  mentioned above, depending  upon where you live and the  coverage you choose, the  change in your premium may  differ from the average  Collision &  Comprehensive  Each year about a third of all  vehicle models are "aged"  and the collision premium is  adjusted to reflect decreased  value. Collision premium  increases may apply to other  vehicle models.  Comprehensive coverage  premiums are also adjusted to  reflect claims experience,  vehicle value, use and  territory. Sharp increases in  windshield, theft and  vandalism claims have led  ICBC to increase premiums  for Comprehensive coverage  by an average 15 per cent.  ���ICBC  Underinsured Motorist  Protection (UMP) will cost  $4 more.  GST Impact  When you buy your Autoplan  insurance you will mil pay Ihe  7 per cent GST on your 1991  Autoplan premiums. Financial  transactions of this nature are  exempt.  However. ICBC will he  required to pay the GST on  many goods and services il  purchases.  ANY GOOD  NEWS?  Yes. More and more people  arc participating in carponls  and we've made a change lhal  will make carpooling an even  better deal. In the past you  could drive a vehicle rated for  "pleasure only" to and from  work on only 4 days in a  calendar monlh. We've increased lhal to fi days so thai,  even in Ihe longer months of  the year, lour carpool members who own pleasure-rated  vehicles can share Ihe driving  to and from work without  rcrating their vehicles, as long  as each of them drives lo work  nol more lhan 6 days in Ihe  calendar month. The change  to 6 days also applies to some  other vehicle use classes. Ask  your Autoplan agent lo he  sure you are rated correctly.  Increased Weekly  Benefits  As of January I. 1991  accident victims who qualify  will receive increased  compensation for losl wages.  ICBC is increasing Ihe maximum weekly indemnify from  $200 to $300 provided lhal  does not exceed 75 per cent of  the victim's gross weekly  income at the time of the  accident. This applies lo all  new claims as well as to all  outstanding claims. Payments  will not be retroactive  but will start at the new  level as of January 1991.  Short Term Savings  Prior lo January I, 1991 a  surcharge of 5 per cent of the  annual premium has been  charged to people licencing  and insuring their vehicles for  periods of less than 12 months  (short term licence and  insurance). This surcharge has  been reduced lo 4 per cent  (minimum $20) to make the  short term option even more  affordable.  WHAT ELSE?  Territories  For insurance rating purposes,  BC is divided into 14  territories, In the past your  Autoplan agent asked where  your vehicle was principally  operated in determining your  premium. Now, for most  vehicles, the territory is  defined as where the vehicle  is "garaged" that is, "primarily  located when not in use". In  most cases, this would be ihe  vehicle owner's home  address. This and other  territorial changes have been  made to accurately reflect  claims experience in different  parts of the Province.  New consequences  of misrating  ICBC has established a new  procedure lo deal with Ihe  serious problem of deliberate  misrating of vehicles. If you  make a claim and your  vehicle is found to be  misruled, you will pay ten  times the difference between  the cost of the coverage you  were carrying al the time of  the accident and the coverage  you should have had, with a  minimum of $500 and a  maximum of $10,000.  The bottom line - be sure  your vehicle is correctly  rated.

Their  help is always appreciated.  Membership dues may now be  payable to any one of the executives or mailed to Pender  Harbour Community Club,  Box 142, Madeira Park, BC,  VON 2H0.  The executive members work  very hard to maintain the hall  for the use of the whole community. Operating costs alone  are over a thousand dollars a  month. This must be raised by  voluntary means. In the past  year, donations have been given  to the Jaws of Life Fund in the  amount of $5000, the Music  Society in the amount of $2000,  and bursaries have been given to  two high school students.  The community club could  do so much more, if additional  people would become involved  and offer their help. The club  can only be as strong as the support that is received from the  whole community. If you have  only a couple of hours to give or  even full days, don't hesitate to  feel free to contact any one of  the executives.  Just a few reminders about  the community club. Their annual spring bazaar is now being  planned for May 4. Materials  are available for anyone who is  willing to knit, sew, crochet or  do any hand crafts. You may  contact Muriel Cameron at  883-2609. Also if you are thinning out your plants in the  garden, it would be appreciated  if you would save any surplus.  Finally, bingo is held every  Thursday, at 7 pm, in the community hall. Attendance has  been very low, so there is room  for more players who want a  great evening out.  Looking for a logo  Now that they have a motto���"A Harbour For Learning"  ���the Madeira Park Elementary School Is seeking to develop  a distinctive logo to go with it.  Figuring that many beads are better than one, the school's  staff and Parent Advisory Council have announced that they  would welcome Ideas and design suggestions for the new  logo. As such, all submissions should be sent to the school by  March 15.  The winning logo will be used to promote the school on  team uniforms, stationery, and so forth. Contributors are  asked io use no more than three colours In their designs.  Brighten Tour  World  POT LUCK DINNER  At the Pender Harbour High  School, you can enjoy a pot  luck Conner and presentation by  Jim Simpson, on February 19.  Jim will be giving a positive  view point in community  awareness concerning drugs and  alcohol. He will be speaking  about their effects on the community and what the area can  do to stop the "ripple effect".  Everyone is welcome! Bring at  least one dish for the dinner at 6  pm. If you cannot make the  dinner, but are interested in the  presentation, Mr. Simpson will  begin at 6:45 pm. For any more  information, please call Eudora  Bramham at 883-2149 or Marg  Goldrup at 883-2667.  SHOW YOUR SUPPORT  The Pender Harbour Pool  presents "We Shield the  Children Vigil and Walk" on  Saturday, February 23, at I pm,  in front of the Rockwood Centre in Sechelt. Come and show  your support for the sanctuary  of children in the Middle East.  Contact Joan at 883-9054 or  Marie at 883-2142 for more information.  AS THE TIDE CHANGES  Although this is a sad note, I  am sure most of you remember  Pat and Morley Leuscombe  who used to run the IGA.  Regrettably, they lost their  daughter last week when she  was killed by a car in the Burnaby area. Our prayers go out  to the family.  The Pender Harbour Seals  Swim Club are off to the Junior  BC Provincial held in Surrey  this year on February 22 to 24.  Good luck to you all!  Enjoy the pussy willows while  they last. Until next week, be  good to yourself.  EGMONT NEWS  Taxes prove taxing  by Dixie Percy, 883-9228  Well folks, things were so  quiet around the cabin last week  that 1 was forced to entertain  myself with a rousing evening of  'do-your-own-income-tax-  return'. Some of you may have  had a similar experience recently  or are blandly anticipating one  in the near future.  What a night! This year,  though, I felt I was ready for it.  I had my personal package  from Revenue Canada laid out  in front of me with all of the information slips I needed. Apparently, my claim is so  straightforward that I was  automatically sent the idiot-  proof, shorter version.  Like a putz, I assumed this  meant it would be easier to All  out and would take less time to  do. What a mistake! I should've  packed a lunch. Two erasers  and a writer's callus later it was  well past the witching hour and  I had done both mine and my  spouse's returns at least three  times each, ending up with a  different result every time.  According to my calculations, I am either going to have  to take out a loan to pay back  what I owe, or start looking for  ways to invest my fantastically  large refund. This might seem a  bit odd to the less experienced  taxpayer, but for me it is a  regular routine. No matter what  figure I come up with at the end  of the form, it always differs  from Revenue Canada's num  ber when they send it back to  me.  Instead of dragging the likes  of myself through a smorgasbord of possible deductions and  eligibility clauses, why can't  they just look it up to see how  much money I made and either  send me the bill or my money? I  mean, they must have all that  information on file somewhere  in the bowels of their vast data  bank. Can't they just call up  that great information and  figure it out for themselves?  Why involve me in the first  place when, year after year, my  answer is always incorrect? I tell  you, it's a waste of paper.  If it weren't for the fact that I  usually do end up getting a few  bucks back. I probably  wouldn't pay much attention to  it; however, since this pesky  problem won't deal with itself,  I'm just going to have to take  the bull by the horns. 1 have  tried to figure out what 17 per  cent of anything is for the last  time. This year I am going to  take my little stack of papers in  to be decoded by someone who  does this sort of thing for a living. It may not affect the outcome of my return much, but at  least I'll know what I'm in for  ahead of time.  SENIOR CITIZENS  Recently some information  was distributed through the  mail concerning housing in  Area A for seniors with incomes  of less than $15,000 per year. A  committee is being formed to  face this issue and they would  like anyone that this concerns lo  come forward and make themselves known in order to better  serve the community's needs. In  Egmont contact Billy Griffith  for information.  BEWARE OF SKUNK  The Quilting Club had to  move its meeting place last week  from the Egmont School to the  basement of the Backeddy.  Pepe Le Peu had used some  aromatherapy on the school and  it did nothing for the quilters.  You may want to give it some  time to air out before your next  visit.  SPRING ENTHUSIASTS  Pussy willows are beginning  to bloom. Buds are forming  everywhere. The days are get-  ling noticeably longer. Four and  a half weeks to go.  THANKS  Vi Bemtzen would like to express her sincere thanks to  everyone for their kindness.  Watch out. Egmont's  downtown population has increased by 15! A crew of tree  planters have moved in for the  next few weeks to try and cover  those bald spots on the mountains.

"In order to allow this forest  to reach its full potential, it  must be allowed to grow and  diversify ���in age classes, in  species, in function and in structure. By doing this we would be  saving money in the cost of  slash burning, planting and herbicides. When you clear cut at  80 years, you impoverish and  weaken the ecosystem."  Horse logging was one of the  options suggested by Wareing. ���  Douglas Gook of the Cariboo  Horse Loggers Association  outlined for the audience the  practices of his group. He said  that the method causes minimal  damage to the forest, allowing  natural regeneration on sites  where reforestation would be  unsuccessful. He said that  although the output of an individual logger with a horse is  much less than with machine  logging, the economic return is  comparable because there is no  need to recoup the massive costs  of large machinery.  Doug Gook of the Cariboo Horse Loggers Association and Mark  Wareing, professional forester with the Western Canada  Wilderness Committee, were speakers at the public meeting on  logging in Roberts Creek. -Rose Nicholson photo  "But we are not immune to  technology," Gook added.  "We have many combinations  of horses and machinery. We  have horse-self-loading logging  truck combinations, horse-  helicopter combinations and  horse-skyline operations."  Gook said he had walked the  cutblocks here, and "I don't  know why it's not happening  here. The possibilities are so  much better for these types of  models to evolve. Your market  conditions are so much  better...you have options and  the economics are better  because of that."  The advocates of clear cutting  argue that their method is the  only way to deal with the problem of fir root rot and other  diseases, but Wareing  disagreed. He claimed that  species and structural diversity  minimizes that problem.  "In the particular stand we're  looking at on 'he Sunshine  Coast," he said, "there is a certain amount of root rot. 1 don't  think it is in any way critical...It  can be controlled by the secondary cutting system. The initial  cut would zero in on the infected trees, and then that  would tend to encourage cedar  to grow in the root rot pockets.  We don't have to throw up our  hands and say 'oh, we have root  rot, therefore we have to clear  cut.' There are lots of other  ways around the problem."  In the information package  prepared for the meeting, a  paper by ecologist Dr. E.C.  Pielou warns of another lesser  known danger of clearcutting  and slash burning, "the tremendous and Irreversible destruction of biological diversity."  "The importance of conserving wild plant populations  because of the genetic resources  they contain is well understood  by agricultural scientists and  Sunshine Coast  'ircc   niocr  ICES   DIRECT  ���  HOME IMPROVEMENTS  MARINF SERVICES  ��� Commercial & Residential ���  ��� Carpet & Resilient Flooring*  ������***�������   phone   ******  *"o* E8SO-88S8 or SW  Popping       SHOWROOM  5601 Hwy. 101, Sechelt  Tuee.-Frl. 12:30-5pm, Sat.

Clear in the minds of Roberts  Creek residents was the  disastrous flood that occurred  on Clough Creek in 1983 when  many residents had to be  evacuated from their homes as a  log jam gave way and massive  amounts of water, debris and  standing timber swept on to  their properties.  "I have here a document  from the Water Management  Branch of the Ministry of Environment," said Donna  Shugar, "which links that flood  to logging that had taken place  10 years previously."  Damage to salmon spawning  creeks by clearcut logging practices was alio brought up. Jay  Hamburger told of extensive  damage to the Pender Harbour  Wildlife Association's salmon  enhancement hatchery when  spawning beds were clogged  with silt washed from a logging  operation in recent heavy rains.  "I get phone calls about  things like that all the time,"  said Wareing, commenting on  the lack of coordination between the Ministries of Forestry  and Fisheries.  "The ball is now in your  court," Moderator Brian Cole  told the audience, "because you  are the inter-communication  link between all these sections of  government. Unless you take it  upon yourselves to be that link  we are not going to have  anything by way of sanity in any  of these ministries."  Summing it all up, Donna  Shugar said, "The question is,  what do we do next? We invited  Forestry to participate in this  meeting and they didn't come as  full participants but just as  observers.  "They have offered us  another meeting on March  12...We would like to have  dialogue with Forestry, but we  would like to have their  response to this meeting, not a  defense of their position on  clearcut logging."  Teachers  Continued from page 1  averaged between six and seven,  pec cent.  The compensation stabilization p-ogram announced  Januar, .9 by the Ministry of  Finance and Corporate Relations states, "The ability to pay  is defined as the current ability  of the public sector employer to  pay compensation increases  without reducing existing levels  of the public service or raising  taxes.  "Further, this program will  see a freeze on the salaries of  Cabinet Ministers, MLAs, and  senior public officials  throughout the public sector including government, Crown  Corporations, municipalities  and the health and education  sector."  Mjanes says the teachers sympathize with the district's position as-"They just received their  budget figures and they are  dramatically reduced from what  was expected. They are in the  process of trying to live up to  their agreements."  Anderson could not be reached for further details at press  time.  Board Chairman Maureen  Clayton said, "the incredibly  long process" involved meeting  with the teachers 33 times and  "We had to put our heads down  and think about some real dif-  ficult things."

Coast News, February 18,1991  At Gibsons Council  Planning Committee faces mixed bag  b> Rose Nicholson  Consideration of a proposed  amendment to a bylaw that  would have authorized the  change of Gospel Rock lot sizes  was struck from the agenda of  the February 12 meeting of the  Planning Committee of Gibsons  Council when a surprise request  came from the applicant that  the application be withdrawn.  "It's now a dead issue," commented Mayor Eric Small.  In further efforts to save the  Inglis house, Ihe Committee has  suggested enlisting the help of  the Heritage Society to investigate ways to acquire financing for the project.  "We'd all like to see it remain  on its present site (as a heritage  house)," said Mayor Small.  "The question is���how'.'"  "Does it qualify for heritage  status?" asked Alderman Ed  Sleeves. "I understand thai  changes have been made that  may not make it eligible. It has  such a long history of being  associated with a political party.  Has this avenue been looked at  as a source of funds?"  "We have no proposal before  us,���and no money behind us,"  quipped Alderman Margaret  Morrison. "I'm in favour of  enlisting the help of the  Heritage Society as a first step."  The Committee recommended spending $2000 to update the  Gibsons' economic publicity  brochure. "Five thousand  copies of this (the old one) were  SCRD wrestles with  Davis Bay dumpsters  Directors at the SCRD  regular meeting held last Thursday evening attempted to come  to grips with a problem which  all agreed had gone too long  without being properly addressed.  At issue was the "mess"  along the Davis Bay beach strip,  an eyesore and potential health  hazard caused by the "misuse"  of dumpsters located there-  receptacles theoretically intended for the convenience of beach  users.  But, as several directors  pointed out at length, the  dumpsters have been used more  Portable  Toilet  ��� Construction Sites  ��� Special Events  ��� Outdoor Picnics  ��� Weddings, etc.  Alio:  Septic Tank Pumping  Bonniebrook  Industries  886-7064  and more for "household garbage" by residents in the area.  The SCRD has apparently  received "many complaints"  about the situation.  One proposal would see the  dumpsters removed and replaced with smaller receptacles  which would not accommodate  the large, plastic trash bags  commonly used in private  households.  Director Bob Wilson suggested thai part���if not all���of  the problem stemmed from less  than ideal servicing of the existing dumpsters. He also noted  that, "The dumpsters are used  by 'weekenders' to get rid of  trash on their way home...But I  do admit there is some abuse of  these facilities."  Dick Derby agreed that, "It is  a major problem. And the big  offenders are the steady  residents on the Sunshine  Coast!"  Peggy Connor noted that,  "We had this problem at Trout  Lake. So we had it (the dump-  ster) removed. We didn't see a  big problem after they were  taken away."  "Take them away from  Davis Bay," insisted Brett  McGillivray. "People must  become responsible. I don't buy  Ihis thing that if we take them  away, things will remain as bad  (as they are)."  printed and it proved to be a  very good promotional  vehicle," explained Planner  Rob Buchan.  "But the information in it is  now out of date. We could  recover $1000 of the cost from  the Economic Development  Branch of the provincial  government."  The Committee also recommended that the 'radius of  notification' bylaw, which requires (hat residents within a  150 feet radius be notified of  any intended rezoning, be extended to include changes in the  community plan, development  variance permits, etc., to bring  it into line with recent changes  in the Municipal Act.  Aldermen objected to a proposal thai a dog pound be  located at Ihe airport at a rental  fee of one dollar a year. It was  felt that the rapid growth rate  on the Coast could mean that  the property might soon become  very valuable and it would be  unwise for Gibsons to tie up its  share of the airport property  with such a venture.

Designed by Roberts Creek  renaissance man Clarke Steab-  ner, the rough-hewn, idiosyncratic structure proves not only  that good things come in small  packages, but that horns of  plenty need not assume only one  particular shape. The Arts Centre opened wide its inviting,  double wooden doors in 1979,  and cultural life along the Coast  hasn't been the same since.  Donna Shugar has been  manager for the past five years.  A warm, sensitive and insightful  woman, whose carefully chosen  words are matched by a low-key  intensity, Shugar is responsible  for coordinating all events-  performance and visual���and  serves as liaison between the  Arts Centre and its 'parent'  body, the Arts Council. Shugar  was with the Centre as an unpaid volunteer since its inception, becoming "paid staff" in  January of '86, when she  assumed the position of  Manager.  Curator of the Arts Centre is  Larry Westlake, an erudite-  looking aesthete of decidedly  Puckish mien. A word merchant with a delightfully skewed  intellectual bent, Westlake's  comments on "culture"���his  favourite buzz word���crackle  and fizz as if propelled by some  subterranean source of personal  carbonation.  "The Arts Centre is a tip-of-  the-iceberg of all the cultural activities that take place on the  Coast. If it isn't unique, it's at  least exceptional! The Centre  serves a catalytic function���an  outlet for artists to aspire to."  In almost the same breath, and  in what is obviously an off-the-  cuff-riff, Westlake seeks to  make the point that "culture"  hasn't sunk roots deep enough  for him by noting that "I'm surprised at how many people  don't know where I  work���where the Arts Centre is  even located!"  Like the teeter-totter champion someone in her position  must at least aspire to, Donna  smoothly allows as how  "Whereas the people in my  sphere do know about the Centre." Then, to nail down the  fact that Larry's sphere is  arguably somewhat smaller  than the Coastwide community  the Centre is intended to serve,  Shugar adds that "Nine thousand people came through those  doors last year���either for  specific events or simply as  drop-ins. A huge number were  people who made it part of  their...cultural 'routine'." She  smiles benignly, but with a certain wry emphasis: "But a lot of  people are still guilty of getting  their 'cultural hits' off the  Coast..."  Westlake adjusts his glasses  and nods his agreement at  Shugar. Then his brows crinkle,  the ever-lurking grin assembles  itself and the Curator tilts at  another windmill.  "It would seem to be typically Canadian that if it is easy to  access���and it is appearing  locally���then whatever it is  can't possibly be World Class!"  Westlake gestured around at the  interior of the Centre. "We  bring artists here from off the  Coast���some who've exhibited  in major galleries."  "Another reality," says  Shugar, "is that there are many  Coast artists who also exhibit in  major galleries off the Coast,  but who make it a point to support the Arts Centre with their  work."  According to Shugar there  has been a "...slow, consistent  evolution and development  which characterizes the Centre,  I should think. In the early  years it was very precarious. We  were always afraid that our  lease wouldn't be renewed, that  we'd have to...move." She's  silent momentarily, almost as if  "move" wasn't precisely the  word she'd meant to choose.  "There's been a broad acceptance of the Centre as a cultural  fixture," she notes. "We helped  create a climate which made  other endeavours���such as  Rockwood���possible.''  Westlake was asked how, as  Curator, he goes about deciding  what visual events will grace the  walls of the Centre.  "I work with a committee ot  people whom I very much  respect. We meet and discuss  Larry Westlake and Donna Shugar relax (momemtarily) In front of Arts Centre.  -Jaa Michael Sewrmaa photo  the shows we're considering,  not only for suitability, but for  workability. We once rejected  an exhibition of photographs of  veterans���World War 1, and  WWII���which seemed to  render war...ah...nostalgic���  rather than condemning it. It  wasn't a unanimous vote I  should say, but we did reject it.  That doesn't happen often."  "As curator," Larry  elaborates, "I select, present,  interpret, and ship. You gotta  move the stuff...! Now, if you  present some artist one year and  the show is wildly successful���and we sell a lot of her  or his work���the strong temptation is always there to repeat,  say, the following year."  Westlake grinned, pausing  .before making his point.."But  jant.  we don't���we simply won't.  We'll wait several years before  coming back to the same artist.  But don't get me wrong. If  someone's work sells, we're  delighted. For the artist, for us.  But commerciality is the least  important factor we consider."  The Arts Council has a yearly  operating budget of $90,000. Of  that, the Centre receives only a  portion. Westlake and Shugar  are employed on the basis of a  20-hour week, although both  are quick to confirm that working full-time (and beyond)  would see them faced with still  more to be done.  So they rely on the Centre's  ISO-odd volunteers, some  regular, some "once-in-a  while." "They are absolutely  essential,"   Westlake  em  phasizes, Shugar nodding in  agreement. "We couldn't  operate the Centre the way we  currently do without  volunteers."  Asked about the Centre's  future, Larry replies "Listen,  I'm not even talking about  breakthroughs. Culture is incremental���not a matter of  breakthroughs. What makes me  really pleased is feeling that  we've gotten a response. The  community response is (emblematic) of goals achieved.  Confirming values���and stretching them is what we do here."  "I love this place when it's  full," Shugar says softly. "I  love it especially when the event  is something off-the-wall.  Something that stretches the  edges..."

These  odysseys���as I came to think of  them���took Yvonne and I to  many obscure corners of BC  Over the years, I have undertaken to record these journeys  in some detail and they already  comprise a sizable manuscript.  One of our earliest jaunts  however, remains largely un-  chronicled. It was my first real  taste of the road and it still  stands clear in memory.  May 24, 1981 dawns unin-  vitingly, grey and overcast. We  have been hoping for sunny  weather to brighten our first  safari together through the BC  Interior. But the clouds are  predicted to lift in a couple of  days and at least the temperature is mild. We load up the  car and head east along the  Fraser Valley, its spring vistas  obscured by patchy mist in the  lacklustre light. Despite the grey  day, I fed a definite twinge of  anticipation.  Bypassing Hope, we hit the  Hope-Princeton and begin the  long uphill haul to Manning  Park, stopping briefly at the  still-awesome slide that smashed  across the Sumallo Valley in the  early sixties. It is almost noon  when we reach the Manning  Summit and a few miles  beyond, we pull off at a small  and seemingly-deserted picnic  area to grab a spot of lunch. We  soon become aware that the picnic ground is by no means  deserted.  Around our wilderness moun-  tainlop table  the guests begin to gather  an incursion of the small  chillering twittering closer  circling through the sun-circled  afternoon.  Like fencers they advance and  retreat  wary eyes take our measure  prudently they hesitate  but the lure of the crumbs  proves too strong  their forest caution dissolves.  Quick squirrels dart to the  booty  whiskeyjacks filch from our  fingers  a tiny greathearted chipmunk  scales the ramp of my hand  with thistledown feet and attains the prize.  It is a scene out of Francis of  Assissi  a film by Walt Disney  the small have offered their  trust  and we are the guests not they  scattering our tithes in a high-  country clearing.  We leave our newfound  friends to their woodland  devices and push on. The road  dips and twists through a green  sea of stunted mountain conifers, broken by patches of  alpine meadow. Gradually the  terrain begins to alter. The  stunted trees become Ponderosa  pines spearing up from dry  grassland. Fences straggle along  the roadside now. Cows amble  bovinely among the pines. We  are entering cattle country���the  outer fringes of the true Interior.  The highway swings down to  the floor of the valley in a couple of steep sweeping loops. We  bypass Princeton and forge on  through increasingly arid landscapes. The hanging pithead  buildings of Hedley still ding  tenaciously to their mountain  wall as we cruise past the  woebegone mining town with its  aura of vanished affluence. At  Keremeos with its fruit stands  and orchards, we take the northern turnoff and head for the  Okanagan.  The stark desert scenery  begins to moderate as we progress. We are entering ranching  and farming country now, a  land of lakes and green rolling  hills. It is not at its best in the  grey weather���the vivid colours  are muted and dulled���but the  sheer beauty of the landscape is  still impressive. We journey  through it until we reach  Kelowna on Lake Okanagan.  Evening is closing in and we  decide to spend the night here.  Tomorrow we strike out for the  Rockies.  To be continued...

PADDY'S  m^~     PIGS  with  the,  Featuring  THE GRAfflES BROS  When you're buying a new home, there's an  important point to consider: resale value.  That's why you should be sure you're buying  a Quality Plus Home. In today's unpredictable  real estate market, it's difficult to know  where the market will be when you  might want to sell. With all the added  features of Quality Plus construction  your home has added value.  A Quality Plus Home may look  like any other, but there's a big  difference inside where you live.  The Quality Plus Home is  designed for today's lifestyles,  for people who are discriminating about workmanship,  energy efficiency and comfort  in their living space.  Quality Plus is an  advanced system of design  and construction incorporating the latest  Power Smart advances in heating, clean  air ventilation, and insulation. That  means you enjoy a clean, quiet, more  comfortable home environment in  a house with lower ongoing  maintenance costs.  When you're looking for a  new home, insist on one with  a Quality Plus Certificate. It's  the sign of another Power  Smart idea from B.C. Hydro.

The earliest works here, done  only a few years after graduation from the Vancouver School  of Art in 1948, show the strong  influence of Cubism in their  faceted, departicularized forms,  leavened slightly by the linear  net that binds the figures  together. These are moody,  even sombre pieces.  A five year jump to "Raging  Figure" (1957) and again to  "Encounter No. 2" (1962) sees  this unease increase dramatically, with tense brushwork,  threatening forms, and suppressed colour. Both these  works are very painterly, and  the second is notable for the  degree to which the subject is  sacrificed for the sake of painting.  The comparatively relaxed  mood of works done after this  seems to indicate a reconciliation, perhaps associated with  the move farther away from the  image.  Writers' Forge  1990 winners  by Ruth Forrester  The final judgements have  been made, points totalled, and  the winners of the Suncoast  Writers' Forge Writing Contest  announced.  There was an air of excitement at Rockwood Centre last  Wednesday as those in attendance awaited results.  In the nonfiction category,  winner of the first prize of $100  was Fraser Taylor of Secret  Cove, second prize of $50 went  to Eileen Wiliiston of Gibsons,  and third prize of $25 was won  by Janet Miller of Sechelt.  Maureen Goldman of Gibsons won $100 first prize for fiction, Leslie Mac Far lane of  Tuwanek received $50 for her  second prize entry, while Vern  Giesbrecht of Gibsons took  third prize of $25.  There was a total of 51 contest entries, which made for a  difficult task for the three  judges in each category. Winning entries along with several  other selected pieces will be  published in the Suncoaster  Magazine 1991 which should be  available in local bookstores by  spring.  Hearty congratulations to the  six winners.  The appreciation of Jarvis'  work requires not so much that  we seek his meanings in his  paintings as we seek our own in  them. By doing so we establish  the link between the viewer, the  painter, and the painted.  Don Jarvis' paintings, drawings, and prints can be seen at  the Arts Centre in Sechelt until  Wednesday, March 9; Saturday  11 am to 4 pm, Sunday 1 pm to  4 pm.  JAPANESE FILM  The Arts Centre's Fall Film  Series features a 1985 production by Mitsuo Yanagimachi,  Fire Festival. In a coastal village  in south-west Japan, a lumberjack in his forties has a mystical  relationship with the goddess of  the mountains. Seeing the  fishing grounds polluted,  speculators moving in and traditions being eroded, he turns a  gun on his family and himself.  Fire Festival will be shown at  the Arts Centre, Trail and  Medusa, Sechelt on Wednesday, February 20,8 pm. Admission is $4 at the door.  DRUM HEAT  Other than the human voice,  the drum is perhaps the world's  oldest instrument and it is as  much a part of contemporary  music as at any other time in  history.  On Sunday, February 24, 2  pm, Gibsons will throb to the  beat of drums���from as far  away as Africa and Brazil and  as close as contemporary  America.

I was on the trail of the legendary Skookumburger, while she merely lusted after  an ambrosial platter of fish and chips. Word had it that both items���along with  many other tasty offerings���were to be found at the Backeddy Marine Pub.  After our most friendly and enthusiastic hostess, Pam, took our orders, I quaffed a pint of creamy Toby whilst my partner and I gazed out across the water  watching a rainbow forming miraculously before our eyes. As if by predestination, the moment the shimmering colours dissipated, our meal arrived.  Her fish was light-battered, flaky, gold-crusted cod, against which snuggled a  mini-mountain of ultra skinny-cut fries, crisp and begging to be appreciated. My  partner found little time in which to render any detailed verdict on her  repast���save for a half-whispered, half-mumbled, "mmmn...excellent!"���as she  set to with gusto.  My mythological Skookumburger proved to be only too real���and about the  shape and size of a small UFO! Packed inside the custom-baked, sunflower seed-  topped wheat bun was what had to be close to a half-pound of juicy, rare beef.  And to keep this mega-pattie company were onions, mushrooms, tomatoes,  bacon, cheese and crisp lettuce! (All smothered in special burger sauce).  Almost forgot. The onion rings were sensational. Pat, our chef, graciously appeared to see how we'd enjoyed the fruits of her labour. The bill was moderate.  And the sun made a brief, but spectacular, appearance just for good measure.

Coast News, February 18,1991  s  Minor hockey hosts visitors  The Sunshine Coast Minor  Hockey Association again had  another busy time hosting out  of town teams.  A team from Langley met  both of our Bantam teams in  two well played games February  2. In the first the Thunderbirds  had a 4-2 win, followed by  another victory by the Kings,  with a final 7-1 score. The Kings  and Thunderbirds met each  other later that week with a 7-4  win for the Kings.  The following weekend the  Peanuts, Atoms and Peewees  hosted visitors.  In a very close and exciting  game, it was a 4-3 win for the  Yellow Peanuts against the  North Delta North Stars. Daniel  Bolt and Brian Hutchison  scored two goals each for the  win. A second North Delta  team met our Purple skaters in a  4-4 tie. Matthew Waddell earned himself a hat trick and Keith  Clegg put another in the net.  The Seattle Sno-Kings  Hockey Association Allstar  Pups team challenged our  Atoms division teams, and were  invited for four games over the  weekend of February 9. The  Devils had a 3-0 win, with two  goals scored by Grant Lilly and  one by James Rickbeil.  In the second Saturday game  with the Oilers, Buddy Peers  scored four times, and Riki  Peers and Carey Rumba each  Sechelt Lifters  to Canada Games  had two, for an 8-1 victory.  Seattle came back on Sunday  with a 3-3 tie against the Wings  and an 11-2 win over the Jets.  Scoring for the Wings were Ben  Tripp, David Toynebeen and  Jordy Radymski, and for the  Jets, Ryan Sauve and Kai  Jenkins.  The competition was good  and the players enjoyed  themselves. Seattle has offered  to host us sometime in the  future. Thanks to the Driftwood Inn for their hospitality.  In the PeeWee division, the  Canucks and Flames each met  the North Delta Red Wings.  Travis Cummings, Alex  Hamilton, Dominic Rothlis-  berger and Silas White each  scored one goal in a close 5-4  loss. The game was decided in  the last minute of play with a  final goal by the Red Wings.  The North Delta team had iu  second victory with an 11-4 \  over the Flames. Scoring for the  Flames were Nathan DeBoer.l  David Murawsky, Adam Sacco, I  and Lewis Nichols. In a house |  league game earlier in the week  the Flames narrowly defeated  the Canucks 7-6.  Coming up in the Pups division March 3 will be games  against the North Shore Winter  Club.

On the rocks  Knockout game  by Hut? Turner  Last week, we started to explain the strategy of the game.  Although game strategy is complicated and varies from game  to game according to ice conditions, opposition, and how a  team is playing that particular  day, there are some constants  which are worth knowing.  In the early ends until the skip  gets to know the ice, the general  rule is to keep the house clean.  In other words, the knockout  game is best suited to this part  of the game. The knockout  game is best played with only  three to four weights. Those  weights would be, hitting  weight, hack weight and tap  back or back ring weight. A  skip might call on an extra  heavy takeout in special situations, such as moving many  rocks, or hitting a small hole on  swingy ice.  Men's  Hockey  by Mark Benson  IN MEN'S HOCKEY  Third place Gibsons Kings  came back to tie both of their  games by a score of 5-5 this  week in the Sunshine Coast  Men's Hockey League.  First place Wakefield  Whalers were leading the Kings  by a comfortable score of 4-1 at  one point of the game on goals  by Kelly Cousins, Mike Yarrow,  Dave Crosby, Clay Munson and  Rory Walker.  But, the Kings fought back to  within a goal on pairs of goals  by Brian Loyst (2) and Ron  Norguurd (2). With Wakefield  two men short and the Kings  goalie pulled for an extra attacker, the Kings Steve Carey  smoked one from the point with  four seconds remaining to  salvage the'tie and the all important point that goes with it.  The Kings also struggled back  to earn a tie against the sixth  place Roberts Creek by an identical score of 5-5.  The Creek pulled ahead on a  pair of goals by Jim Benger (2),  plus goals by Darryl Bracken,  Bob Gower, and Cory  Lamarsh.  Again the Kings came back  on a pair of goals by Steve  Carey (2), one of which was the  game tying goal again. The  other goals were scored by Ron  Norguurd, Graham Ruck, and  Gord Pollock.  In another game, Wakefield  knocked over fourth place  Gilligans Flyers by a score of  4-1.  Wakefield scorers were  Claude Charleton, Clay Munson, Jim Bracken, and Darren  Kohuch,  Gilligans lone goal was scored  by Billy Stockwell.  THIS WEEK'S GAMES  Wednesday, February 20,  7:30 pm, Gilligans vs  Wakefield; Thursday, February  21, 7:30 pm, Hawks vs Buccaneers. No additional game  due to Old-Timers Tournament  this weekendl  On the weekend of February  22, 23, and 24, the Sechelt  Wrecks Hockey Club hosts a  Canadian Old-Timers Hockey  Association Tourney at Sechelt  Arena.

LEAGUE STANDINGS  WTLP  UJ 139  147 3 29  12 �� 3 35  1(12 212   ��� * 12 3 11  Cmk �� M 114  In the draw game, the skip  often waits until the team has  last rock. If a skip has the last  rock, the usual rule is to set up  corner guards and play around  them. An alternative to this type  of play is to place two rocks in  the rings near the sides and in  front of the Tee line, approximately even with one another  in the house. If one is fortunate  enough to keep these stones in  play, then guards can be placed  in front of them. The whole end  will be played to count two.  A third stone can then be  placed on or near the button, or  behind the corner guards. The  more stones placed together in  the house, the easier it is to  remove one or more of them.  Scores of three, four or five  rocks in an end, are however,  fairly common.  If the team does not have last  rock, the skip will often attempt  to 'steal one'. The most common method to try to steal, is to  ask the lead to put their stone in  play on the center line about six  to eight feet in front of the  rings. If the opponent fails to  peel the guard, a second stone is  played into the rings behind the  guard.  Although the draw and the  takeout game are the two most  fundamental strategies in curling, there are many variations  and subtleties to the two basic  approaches which we will deal  with next time.  IX GIKONS  1(1   LANES  'Live aboard1 inequity charged  Phil Kevill of Royal Reach  Marina addressed the Sechelt  Council February 13 regarding  what he considered a disparity  in the enforcement of municipal  bylaws involving "live aboard"  boaters in the Sechelt area.  Kevill informed Council that  he felt his marina had been  singled out by the bylaw en  forcement officer, Alan Mac-  Pherson, when, in 1988, Mac-  Pherson requested a "live  aboard" boater move out of  that marina. Kevill said his  seems to be the only marina  where this occurred.  The controversy over "live  aboard" boat owners stems  from a perceived lack of proper  septic systems on many of the  Gardening notes  boats. This results in human  waste being flushed directly into  the water wherever these boats  may be docked.  In a memo to Mayor Nancy  MacLarty, MacPherson  defended himself against what  he called the "allegations of  favouritism." He said that the  wording of the 1988 bylaw that  gave Sechelt authority over the  boats within the town's offshore limits (200 metres from  shoreline) seemed not to identify "live aboard" boats, but  rather boats that are designed to  by Marguerite  Welcome fellow gardeners,  and newcomers to the Sunshine  Coast. Spring is just a month  away, so it's time to assess your  garden plans and needs. It's  becoming very apparent that  home gardening is growing  more popular each year,  perhaps serving as a therapy for  relaxation in these anxious  times.  It promotes a healthy  satisfactory lifestyle, and can be  enjoyed by all ages, including  children, who are our future  gardeners.  Reminders: Keep a garden journal of your plantings for  reference each year. Take out of  winter storage to start the  season, fuchsias, pelargoniums  and marguerites. The long white  leggy roots are looking for light.  They now need to be given fresh  soil, which can be any commercial potting mix, or your own  sterilized homemade mix. But  this should have one tablespoon  of fertilizer of balanced  granulated food 6.8.6 added to  each household pail and be well  mixed.  Shake plants out of pots,  tape, prune back two thirds,  leaving two or three buds,  which are bumps on the stem.  Strong new growth should grow  from the plant centre when well  watered and placed by south  facing windows for best light,  turning half a turn each week.  When reading seed catalogues  for selection, always consider  height of plants, trees, and  shrubs in your overall plan of  your garden landscape, to avoid  costly mistakes.  The Gibsons Garden Club  meeting takes place in the  Marine Room, Thursday,  February 21, at 7:30 pm. Carole  Rubin, the speaker, discusses  "How to get your garden off  drugs."

The memo continued on to  say, in the case of the Royal  Reach, MacPherson "requested  a (two storey) 'house boat' to  move out of the marina as opposed to 'ordering a live  aboard' to move out.

The program adds $500 million  in new money to the amount the government had  previously committed for reforestation over the five-  year period, 1991-1995. This includes $100  million allocated by B.C. to the new federal-provincial  forest agreement.  INTENSIVE SILVICULTURE  Managing new forests to produce quality trees and a more  diverse forest environment - intensive silviculture - is  the new focus of the government's Forest Renewal Program.  British Columbia will utilize forestry techniques similar to  those used in Sweden, adapting them to the unique  requirements of our province.  Our program ensures that the  remaining "not satisfactorily  restocked" or NSR lands in B.C. will  be reforested by the end of this  decade. This will enable B.C. to  redirect Its energy and resources into  spacing, fertilizing and pruning our  second-growth forests.  NEW JOBS FOR BRITISH COLUMBIANS  Changing the emphasis to intensive silviculture will  pay off in new jobs in all regions of the province,  particularly in rural  areas where the  forest industry is a  primary employer.  Over the next five  years, our Forest  Renewal Program  is expected to  generate thousands  of jobs (64,500  person-years of  employment). These  jobs are crucial -  they come at a time  when markets are  down and forest workers are experiencing layoffs.  ENVIRONMENT AND ECONOMY  Our Forest Renewal Program will  maintain the important balance between  our environment and our economy. This  new era of forestry practices and  continuing research will create new  permanent jobs in the forest  industry and maintain our forests  as the number one generator of  wealth and economic stability  in British Columbia.

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

List  week's winner was Brad Hooper of Sechelt who comedy identified Ihe sign at the corner of Fawn Road and Redrooffs Road.  On Knowledge Network  Local writers featured  byJaac!  Sheep eld  The Ministry of Forests is planning on using domestic  sheep this summer as a means of controlling brush in young  conifer plantations. The SCRD was informed of the move in  a recent letter from W. Blake Fougere, District Silviculture  Planner for the Sunshine Coast Forest District.  "We are prepared to do water sampling prior, during, and  following the treatments, as well as take any precautions  necessary to maintain current water quality," Fougere promised.  All blocks to be submitted to the "sheep treatment" are in  the Sechelt area, specifically Angus Creek, Roberts Creek,  and Rainy River.  "Write what you know."  That's what local storytellers  have been doing for years, with  books about loggers, fishermen  and life alone the rainy west  coast of British Columbia.  Storytelling has always been a  necessary art on the Coast.  Whether your boat was tied up  waiting out a storm, or you  spent an evening in a logging  camp, tall tales helped pass time  and while away the winter.  Now, some of the Coast's  best known tale tellers are  themselves the subject of a new  TV story. Local writers,  publishers and Sunshine Coast  personalities will be featured in  a TV program, Writing in the  Rain, which will air on the  Knowledge Network on February 25.  The program, about Coastal  writing and publishing, includes  interviews with lot��� writers  Peter Trower and Edith Iglauer,  and publisher Howard White of  Harbour Publishing. There are  also conversations with local  people, which give a flavour of  the Coastal lifestyle which inspires regional writing. Fisherman Jim Warnock, ex-labour  leader Bill White, pioneer boat  builder Alan Farrell and activist  Iris Griffith are all included in  the program.  "One of the rationales behind  promoting regional culture is to  see ourselves," says Paul  Mclsaac, the director of the  program, "and it's important to  see who 'ourselves' really are.  The good Coastal books do a  remarkably good job of capturing that flavour and playing it  back. We wanted to do a little  of the same thing on video to  show the people what those  stories are about."  Originally, the producers of  the program came to the Coast  to make a film for publishing  students at Simon Fraser  University about Howard White  and the founding of Harbour  Publishing. Once filming  began, director Mclsaac realized there was a lot more to the  topic than could be included in  one show. With encouragement  from the Knowledge Network,  the producers decided to make  an additional program for a  more general audience, which  resulted in Writing in the Rain.  The idea of regional writing  goes back a long way on the  Coast, says Howard White,  publisher, who counts Bernard  Sinclair, a fisherman from  Pender Harbour, among his  "literary grandfathers".  Sinclair was publishing popular  novels set on the Coast before  1920. White's own interest in  the value of regional writing  came early. As a child growing  up in a logging camp on Nelson  Island, he realized that "Dick  and Jane never wore gumboots  and life-jackets like me and my  sister did."  Later in life, he decided to try  to capture the energy and  character of the natural  storytellers he had known while  growing up, but who never  seemed to appear in the books  from other places. Eventually  this led to developing the West  Coast anthology Raincoast  Chronicles and founding Harbour Publishing as a regional  publishing house. Some of the  West Coast writers now  published by Harbour, such as  Anne Cameron, Bus Griffiths  and Jim Spilsbury are also included in the TV program.  Director Paul Mclsaac says  that he hopes Writing in the  Rain will help people to take an  interest in Coastal writing as a  valid form of literature. "Given  the barrage of electronic and  print media we receive from the  US and other parts of Canada,  it's important for us to both ex  perience and value our own  culture," he says.  "Here, culture is what people  live. Back East it is what you do  when you put on a suit and tie."  The program will run on the  Knowledge Network from 8 to  8:30 pm on Monday, February  25.

Coast News, February 18,1991  Wilton Crook dowlopiwnt  ln-camera discussion challenged  by Start  "There was no reason why  you shouldn't have been in  there," Jim MacLeod told the  Coait Newt after an in-camera  discussion with the Sechelt  Council.  MacLeod, representing  Wilson Creek Developers Co.  Inc., was at last Wednesday's  committee meetings to discuss a  "clerical error" in the wording  of a Notice of Public Hearing  announcement.  Sechelt Mayor Nancy  MacLarty abruptly called the  in-camera (closed to public  scrutiny) session on the advice  of City Planner Rob Sabine  near the end of three hours of  committee meetings.  When asked by the Coast  News if the in-camera session  was either land acquisition or  personnel related (the reason for  the closed door discussion was  still unknown at that time),  MacLarty responded that it was  not. She said, "there was a  small problem with some  municipal paperwork and Rob  Sabine suggested an in-camera  meeting was the best way to  proceed."  The following day Mayor  MacLarty was contacted by the  editor of the Coast News regarding the legitimacy of going in-  camera over issues of government error.  MacLarty explained "I  wasn't quite sure where I stood  lat night...My gut feeling at the  beginning of the meeting was to  be very open and up front about  Skelly discusses  the Qulf war  by Jan Michael Sherman  MP Ray Skelly was on-hand  as advertised at Elphinstone last  Thursday evening for an informal forum with the public.  "People do not see the  psychosis that has been sweeping the planet for a number of  years,'* Skelly declared.  "Mulroney's talking about  'reconstructing the destruction  in Kuwait'���before the destruction is complete! We must look  to our own house, first." The  shirt-sleeved MP smiled  ironically, looking around at the  cluster of listeners. "How are  we going to pay for this  (reconstruction) AND the war  itself?"  From their comments and  their passion it was crystal-clear  that his audience was dead set  against  the  Gulf  War  and  Canada's "ill-advised" involvement in it.  "There are 28 countries in the  Gulf���only six of them with any  real military force. And only  one doing most of the  fighting... Bush has designed  this (invasion) from the beginning... It is not a United Nations  initiative... If Canada left (the  Gulf), nobody would notice  we'd gone."  "The UN has done one of the  most dishonourable things in its  history," Skelly insisted. "This  war is good for a lot of countries. The Americans have  bought off a lot of people. Britain and France have very dirty  hands in this affair...The war is  being used as a screen for other  activities, including getting...  things... from the United  States."

The nudging came in the  form of a note "slipped" to her  from the planner Sabine. The  note alerted MacLarty to the  presence of Jim MacLeod who  had come to the meeting  specifically to discuss the  "clerical error" which had cost  Wilson Creek Developers a two  week delay in the development  process of their proposed shopping mall.  MacLarty attributed much of  the controversy to her own "inexperience" and said. "I want  the media in on everything ���  within reason." She added  "everything was happening at  once (last night).

Funeral home owner Dan Devlin and architect Dick  Williams presented designs to council for the proposed  funeral home crematorium. The new facility would require a  zoning change from the current Resldendal-3 (R-3) to Public  Assembly (PA).  PA zoning Includes hospitals, churches, schools and  funeral homes.  When asked by Mayor Nancy MacLarty if other sites had  been looked Into, Devlin Mkt that there were presently no PA  zoned areas that would suffice.  MacLarty said that the proposal would have to be weighed  carefully and Devlin responded, "If It isn't going to go (the  proposal) let us know and we'll look for new property with  no 111 will."  !  ��� New Dimensions in Home Entertainment ���  ���m ���  Furniture Land  HfSl I'rllCCS' BFS1 SELECTION' lit SI QUALITY' DIM SFHVICf  You Hire  And We'll Help Pay  Are You a  Nonprofit Group?
