 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  | Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast    25' P��r c��Py ��n "**�� s'ands        January 7,1991       Volume 45       Issue 1  1990  THE YEAR  IN REVIEW  Gospel Rock.  -NoTtmbertt  by Jan Michael Sherman and  Row Nicholson  1990. Throughout the global  village it '���H.ajpu' of hope and  tension, a year, when those who  are supposed to know pronounced an end to the Cold  War ��� only to see the promise  of a broader and more lasting  peace undermined by events in  the Middle East, among other  hot spots worldwide.  On the "homefront" ��� the  Sunshine Coast ��� an un-  preposessing granitic structure  known as Gospel Rock captured centre stage and, at times,  appeared unwilling to relinquish  the spotlight.  Twice Premier William  Vander Zalm brought his frontpage grin and political  bonhomie to our parts, once to  hype a pipeline, the other to remind us that we've "...never  had it so good" while testing the  waters for a Fall campaign  which was aborted pre-flight.  In another "campaign" involving various community and  environmental issues of major  impact and importance to the  20,000-odd residents of the Sun  shine Coast, longtime observers  marvelled at the depth and  breadth of a newborn coastal  activism.  An activism which called  forth headlines related to  everything from the (local)  spraying of toxic herbicides and  the ultimate disposition of the  Tetrahedron Plateau, to the  emotionally volatile matters of  French Immersion and would-  be municipal complexes carrying multi-million dollar price  tags.  In many respects, given the  unprecedented involvement of  so many activist-minded individuals on the Coast, it is fair  to say that activism in and of  itself emerged as possibly the  single most compelling continuing news story of 1990.  In the many forms and guises  it has assumed ��� from  "backlash" voting groups  dissatified with certain trends to  shadowy machine-oriented  political organizations ���  coastal activism has acquired a  viable life of its own and lent a  sense of empowerment to many  people who hitherto felt they  could not make a difference.  "I trust the eagle knows where it wants to live  better than I do."  -KeoCollUu on Gomel Rock, April J3  Chief Tom  Marathon.  The  Strait  ���September}  A News Year Of Twists And Turns...  From the perspective of us at  The Coast News, perhaps the  most slippery on-going news  story of 1990, a story which had  few handles and even fewer  statistical references to draw  upon, was that which revolved  around the perceived conflict  between quality of life and further development.  Many in the know claimed ���  quite convincingly ��� that the  Sunshine Coast was already well  on its way to becoming a  "bedroom community" for the  bulging pockets of upscale  humanity currently residing in  Vancouver with its dearth of  elbow room.  Local and regional governments on the coast struggled  with the dilemna throughout the  year, but the weightiest pronouncement emergent seemed  to be "Development is inevitable ��� but must be well-  planned."  Highlighting the inherent  contradictions of this issue was  the year's end announcement by  MLA Harold Long that fast  commuter ferries would be  coming to the Coast ��� despite  hiGS.S'P' ~  No run-of-the-mill opening at Baysidel  -Jim it  Anti-Vision activists.  the fact that virtually every Sunshine Coast political figure is  opposed to them.  Construction of the much-  heralded natural gas pipeline  began in January of 1990.  ���October!  Throughout the year hundreds  of pipeline workers ��� all from  off-the-Coast ��� dug trench and  laid pipe for, or so the story  went, the benefit of all Sunshine  (rum to pate 9  *$m  ^Hw           ^^B  WF  I^Jj  W*J-^  Grace Maclnnls receives the Order of B.C.  ���Octobers  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945 Coast News, January 7,1991  comments  No quick cure  for state of  national depression  We've been in a recession for quite a while now and we  take cold comfort from the boasts made that we in BC are  "recession proof." Not only is this by-no-means bankable  prediction fatuous and short-sighted, it smacks of a smug  insularity and lack of compassion for our brethren beyond  our borders.  A withdrawal from others and a crabbed preoccupation  with ourselves, coupled with a singular lack of energy, enthusiasm and sense of good prospects, is as good a clinical  definition of depression as any other.  Recent surveys reveal that in excess of 60 per cent of  Canadians firmly believe that 1991 is destined to be even  worse than the year just traversed, suggesting that depression, not recession, is the societal fifth columnist we  should focus more of our therapeutic efforts on.  Depression is the leading emotional health problem in  North America, and it has been coming on strong for a  number of years. Like the common cold, depression is also  highly contagious, and now that it has reached epidemic  proportions and begun manifesting itself in a collective,  cultural context, political and mass advertising  cheerleading and hortatory pep rallies are being rewarded  with the limpest of cross-Canadian "Yaysl"  Canadians feel impotent of late, and have good reason  to. For one thing, they are stuck with a government in Ottawa headed up by the single most unpopular leader in the  nation's history ��� and his very political existence is a major contributory element in this country's current deepening malaise.  Then there is the matter of Quebec's future. Many  Canadian from all walks of life have at least publicly written or kissed off the province, claiming not to care whether  it becomes a sovereign nation or not.  But beneath the surface, working its depressive magic,  are the feelings of loss, betrayal and abandonment which  naturally accompany the rupturing of any familial relationship. For better or worse, Quebec has been part of our  collective heritage and its potential loss is already wreaking  havoc with our national psyche.  Another important factor is the etiology of our current  collective depression is the degree to which we allow  ourselves to accept and adopt the manic consumer addiction and attendant lifestyle philosophies espoused and  vigourously exported from below the border. Overstimulation always produces depression.  Canada's depression will last just so long as it takes for  a lot of unresolved systemic issues to finally be properly  addressed.  Fortunately, grassroots activism, so potentially  therapeutic, is again on the rise, and may represent a major trend.  ���from our files ���  We Remember When  5 YEARS AGO  Eighteen-year-old Sergio Tomasi, of Sechelt, was  the first member of the Sunshine Coast Army Cadet  Corps to be accepted for training in the Canadian  Armed Forces' six week parachutist course.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Cm** 1 Ylir t��; 6 Monltll MO; Foflgn 1 Vmi 140  On the edge of paradise  by Jan Michael Sherman  On a lazy summer's evening  back in '78, while I was still  dreaming of "stardom" as a  screenwriter, I attended a dinner  party. Appropriately, it was  held at a toney Malibu digs  overlooking a creative source  only slightly more potent that  myself. The Pacific Ocean.  At one point our host, Jim  High, a man of intellect and  droll, understated wit, entertained us with a story which imbued me with renewed courage,  and allowed me to believe (all  over again) that 1 was in precisely the right place at the right  time.  Jim, a respected psychiatrist  with an abiding fascination for  creative types, told of once having drinks with one of the film  industry's heaviest dealmakers.  According to his potentate,  the ultimate key to success in  Hollywood was nothing more  In a nutshell  -and nothing less - than "staying power."  For sake of argument, the  man told Jim, let's say a hundred people come to town each  year bent on making it big. One  hundred potential writers, directors, actors, producers (what-  have-you) are drawn lemminglike to the Mecca of the Main  Chance.  But a year later, the mogul  tells Jim, the numbers have  changed. Twenty-five of the initial 100 drop out of the game  completely. Their ante blown,  they go into organic mushroom  farming outside Carbondale, Illinois, or wherever they came  from.  Four years down the line, Jim  recounts with a wry smile, five  years after taking the town by  storm, the ranks of the remaining 75 have been rudely trashed.  Twenty-five have vanished, 25  are near-invisible (but paying  their rent with their craft), and  the remaining 25 are working  -as agents. Trying to make it  happen for somebody else.  Jim glances absently away  toward the sea, letting the sweet  sound of the surf punctuate the  silence. But I am positively  aching to know what becomes  of the remaining 25 because - so  far - I'm still one of them. I'm  (certainly) near-invisible, but  I'm still paying my rent with my  writing!  Jim's then-wife Cathy announces dinner and Jim responds to my pathetic eagerness  by executing a deft jump cut in  time.  At the end of 10 years, he intones, of the 100 stardom mar-  athoners who began the race  with such belief in themselves  (and such contempt for reality),  a mere 13 are left. Thirteen individual creative tribes of One,  still camped on the outskirts of  the Holy Land, still waiting.  As the other guests head inside, I confide to Jim that I feel  like one of those 13. As we  mosey past his hot tub, 1 trail  my hand almost reverentially  across the rough-grained redwood, dip my fingers into the  healing foam. I have been  camped outside the studio gates  for nine years, and a hot tub on  a mountain top (facing Hawaii)  is just a script or two away!  I flicked the water at Jim,  then asked about those 13 kindred souls - the baker's dozen of  do-or-die nuts who are still  hanging on in Paradise after a  decade of determined effort.  Jim's face is a blank screen,  the proverbial mark of the  classic psychoanalyst. He  drapes an arm around my  shoulder and says that all of  them are not only working,  they're all making money hand  over fist, and are all secure and  respected in their individual  arenas.  On yeah, he adds, almost in  passing, and they're all seeing  me three times a week.  (I knew there had to be a  catch). ���jm |  IN TIME OF 'THE BREAKING OF NATIONS'  Only a man harrowing clods  In a slow silent walk  With an old horse thai stumbles  and nods  Half asleep as they stalk.  Only thin smoke without flame  From the heaps of couch-grass;  Yet this will go onward the same  Though   Dynasties  pass.  Yonder a maid and her wight  Come whispering by:  War's annals will fade Into  Ere their story die.  Some splendid particular pictures  by S. Nutter  I have the diary of an aunt  which covers a year spanning  1899 and 1900. She doesn't tell  us much of what she was thinking, but faithfully follows what  she was doing from day to day.  She was in her middle 20's, living mostly in London; and what  she was doing was running  about teaching music, going to  concerts and 'musical evenings',  visiting various family, and, being the eldest daughter, coping  with my grandfather's house.  About half-way she goes on a  bicycle trip with her sister  'Mouse' and her brother-in-law  Harold, up into Yorkshire,  across into Derbyshire and back  to London. This takes a couple  of weeks, fair enough. But  when you consider the bicycles  of the time, and the fact that  these ladies are wearing those  long felt skirts that they had,  and the various weather and  hills etc., and the fact that they  clearly had made no reservations at inns or whatever along  the way, it is surprising that  Helen, my aunt, has no hint of  complaint in her day-to-day on  any of these scores.  What she does complain  about is that Harold was an early photography buff. Time after  time, many times a day, he  would be caught by some vista,  some trick of light or whatever,  and they would have to stop  and pose or just stand there  while he fussed about with his  box.  Harold's hoard of pictures,  which has got to be about  somewhere, I have not been  able to trace, and this is a particular regret. However, it may  be a truism, a picture may, even  though 1 say it as a writer, be  worth a thousand words!  Fortunately for us on the  Coast, the picture hoards of  early photographers have been  generally treated with the  respect they deserve. The BC  Archives have sought them out  and bought them, and they may  appear expertly enlarged and  treated on walls wherever you  go.  On the stairway at Gramma's  Pub in Gibsons for example,  there's a full wall blow-up of a  bunch of '20's woodsmen, pretty rough looking types. This is  sometimes taken as a gallery of  people barred for life, but man,  there's nothing like the immediacy of these characters,  and it would sure take more  than a thousand words, by someone like Dickens maybe, to  come anywhere close to describing the scene.  So who were these early  photographers? The pictures go  back beyond 1900, when Uncle  Harold was feeling a bit of a  pioneer at it in London. Jim  Spilsbury, of Horseshoe Bay,  can tell us of one experience.  He was pretty well an infant  when he arrived on the Coast  from England. The first picture  we have of him (1908) he is  standing outside the family  farm house in Whonnock, age  three. It is a remarkably clear  and well arranged picture. How  come?  Well, it seems he had an aunt  who became interested in  photography somewhere  around the turn of the century.  When his father brought young  Jim out to Canada he had been  given a camera, and instructions, and told to document the  development of the child.  The results 1 would say, are  quite remarkable. Remarkable  also is the production of the  latest of Salisbury's books by  Howard White's Harbour Publishing house, Spllsbury's  Album.  This is really a splendidly  designed book, and many of the  photographs have a genuinely  haunting thing of the past while  being also professionally as  good as any today.  Spilsbury (the young one,  now in Horseshoe Bay) took up  his father's almost imposed interest in photography and pushed on with it as far as he could  go. In his narrative, written in a  lively, humourous and laconic  way, he was also in on the  earliest days of radio on the  Coast, and started the first  Coast airline.  Granted, I am biased in that I  particularly like pictures of old  boats and old aircraft, but still I  would say that the best book to  send away to some recalcitrant  friend, thinking to retire to  Florida or Mexico or some  other nonsense place, could be  mmmt  MsbWsbbMIMI (LetteiiL. to- the. Cdltoi  Coast News, January 7,1991  3.  Gulf stand needed  Editor:  Your editorial in the  December 10 edition headed "A  Welcome Voice" is one of  many recent editorials in your  paper criticizing Canada's role  in the current gulf crisis.  May I suggest that with the  privilege you have of operating  a free and unrestricted  newspaper goes a responsibility,  and it is to editorialize only on  those matters on which you  have at least some understanding and which can be constructive to your readers.  With any knowledge of  history, you would understand  that there always has been, and  will continue to be, individuals  like Hussein who seek to subjugate other people and countries.  The entire free world depends  on the United States and its  allies to control the aggressions  of individuals such as Hussein.  There are any number of  despots in various parts of the  world like Hussein, watching  and monitoring the gulf crisis,  and history tells us that if the  United States and its allies  waver, and Hussein succeeds, it  will be an open invitation for  further aggressions in various  parts of the world.  For over 40 years, to the embarrassment of most thinking  Canadians, Canada has contributed very little to the defence  of the free world and has relied  entirely on the United States to  protect it.  Surely it is not too much to  ask Canada to provide, at least  as a symbol, a token force of  some antiquated war ships and  a few thousand service men to  assist in this crisis.  Frederick H.

They are the Harbour Seals,  our local swim club, who on  November 24 and 25 went to  Vancouver to compete with 250  other Lower Mainland kids in  the West Van Otters 'Classic'  Swim Meet.  Our seven girls and two boys  won a total of 25 ribbons, a  phenomenal amount when you  consider we only had nine kids  and the other 241 were from the  other nine teams. We were the  smallest team there, but we  showed them we were a team to  be reckoned with.

Pat Ritchie  Ettor's Note: PealMy as a  precaatioaary  tamtam,   the  Post box blues  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following   was   received   for  publication:  Hon. Harvie Andre  Minister   Responsible   for  Canada Post  Dear Sir:  I am writing to express to you  my extreme displeasure at a  recently instituted price increase  of over 400 per cent for the rental of a Post Office Box in Gibsons, BC.  Since moving to Gibsons two  years ago, my wife and 1 have  rented PO Box 136 for $13.48  per year; this year, as of  November 1, the rental has increased to $80 per year.  By Canada Post's unilateral,  unannounced action, I am forced to either accept and absorb  this unfair increase, or change  to a 'Green Box' with its attendant awkward address and  which would also cost me a con-  to  business and personal stationery, plus inform friends and  clients of the change.  In addition to this recent  shock, the Gibsons Post Office  is chronically understaffed and  customers have had to endure  severe shortages of supplies  such as receipts, customs  declaration forms, etc. for months. If Canada Post were a private business, it would have lost  most of its customers due to its  massive price increases and  drastic cuts in service.

But as Rick Dixon at  Sechelt Hardware said,"It's a  fact of life, and we just have to  live with it."  "IT" ��� is, of course, the  GST, that New Year's baby that  no one wanted.  For the general public, apart  from grudgingly paying the extra seven per cent, it can almost  be ignored.  But for merchants, there is no  such   luxury.   The   federal  ' government expects its pound  of GST flesh, ��� or else. For  some, it's relatively simple.  Sergio Tomasi at Seacoast  Video said that on video rentals,  it's not much more than charging the tax, then remitting it to  the government.  At the Shadow Baux, Sue  Tarnoff said that "just about  everyone has mentioned it, but  they seem to be resigned. It  means twice as much work at  the counter, because both the  federal tax and the provincial  tax have to be calculated on the  basic price."  Removal of the old 13 per  cent federal tax has, in some  cases, caused a reduction in the  prices of certain items, but that  meant a lot of extra work to.  "We went through the whole  store and repriced everything,"  said Tim Enns at Radio Shack.  In other cases, regular  January price increases at the  wholesale level canceled out any  advantages that the consumer  may have hoped for.  For businesses like drug  stores and supermarkets that  carry a wide variety of merchandise, it has been a logistical  ; nightmare. To a certain degree,  most merchants softened the  ' impact by preplanning as much  as possible. But that could only  go so far because of the government's requirement that the old  system remain in place till  December 31, with the new tax  to take effect on January I.  "We have three extra people  doing nothing but working on  the   changeover,"   said   Jack  Northway of Pharmasave in  Sechelt. "We don't know how  long it will take us."  He went on to say that  although they regularly take inventory twice a year, because of  the complexity of the new  system, they have hired a  federally approved firm of professional stock takers to do the  job this year, and "it's costing  about twice as much as usual."  "We have around twenty-  three thousand items in this  store," Northway explained.  "There were only a few items in  the store that did not have the  Federal Sales Tax (FST) at one  level or another in the past ���  prescription drugs, some  diabetic supplies, baby supplies,  magazines and books. We're  now going through every item  and taking out the FST, then  reclassifying everything into the  new categories. It's a time consuming job."  "We gel a rebate of 8.1 per  cent on the FST that we have  already paid ��� which is a loss,  because we paid 13 per cent. So  we lose five per cent no matter  how you look at it.  "But it doesn't work that  way, because they took an  average, and a lot of our items  like drugs didn't have the FST.  They're using two different  measuring sticks and it doesn't  work. But what can you do?  You can't disagree with the  government."  "To make it fair to the consumer now, we're giving 10 per  cent off everything in the store,  so the customer isn't taking the  loss, it's the store. Of that 10  per cent we're taking off, we'll  get back 8.1 percent.  "Most drug stores and  department stores will be looking at about a seven per cent  loss. You're not talking pennies.  You're talking about a lot of  money."  Computers have made the  job somewhat easier for the bigger stores, but as Northway  pointed out, "there's probably  only one store in 20 that has the  big computers that can do that  job. Most still have the old cash  "Let's see...No tax on the basket because it's empty. But if you  put in the onion unpeeled, you pay?" Everyone was singing the  GST Blues for the first few days of the New Year.  ���Rose Nicholson photo  registers   that   have   to   be  changed."  With everything having to be  done at once, cash register  technicians have their hands  full, and most store owners  won't be able to have the job  done till the middle to the end  of January.  In the meantime, some of  them have gone back to the old  labourious hand written sales  slips and at the end of the  month will have to manually extract both the provincial sales  tax and the GST from their  month end totals. To add to  that frustration is a service fee  of $40 to $60 for a cash register  adjustment.

Neil Clayton and Bruce Morris  of Shop Easy told a story of a  man who questioned the tax on  a six-pack of carbonated pop.  "There were three different  steps to go through to determine  whether it was taxable," said  Morris. ' ., was a six pack, and  that's not taxable. It has seventy  per cent fruit juice in it, and  that's not taxable, but the  reason it's taxable is because it  has sparkling water in it!"  Morris and Clayton briefly  touched on a bewildering list of  regulations they are being expected to follow. Five bakery  donuts are taxable, six are not  ��� but the six must be in one  bag, not three in one and three  in another. One can of pop is  taxable, but more than one is  not.  A cold pizza from the  delicatessen is not taxable, but a  hot one is, and "the computer  doesn't know if it's hot or  cold," said Clayton ruefully.  Many of the regulations  hinge on the way a product is  packaged. Small items like individual servings of yogurt or  juice are taxable if bought singly, but not taxable if they are  packaged in mulfiple packs.  "We're trying to get away  from all that excess packaging,"  said Morris. "That's the whole  point of recycling. I think there  will be a lot of changes in the  next year or so. So much of it  doesn't make sense."  "I'd like to invite Mulroney  and Wilson to run checkout two  and three for a couple of days,"  quipped Clayton. "Let them explain it to the customers!"  "We did a lot of planning,"  he explained, "And programmed our computers ahead of  time. We went to GST  seminars, so we were familiar  with all the rules, and there was  less of a shock. But we spent  hours and hours programming  the computers in December so  we could throw the main switch  on January 1."  Books and magazines have  traditionally been tax exempt,  and the issue is still in limbo,  but in the meantime the GST  must be charged.  Because of the uncertainty  "our sales are down," said  Lola Westell of the Coast  Bookstore in Gibsons. "There's  never been a federal tax on  books, so we can't get a rebate.  "It's a lot of extra time and  trouble and because of that it's  hard to give our customers the  good service we usually do."  Most merchants find that it's  difficult to put a price tag on  what the GST is costing them.  They all agree that it's "lots."  "We tried to figure it out," said  Morris. "So much of it is extra  time and you don't always  know how to count that. I  wouldn't be surprised if we  haven't spent $10,000 in time  and expenses. We had to buy  new computer programs and  things like that."  Generally speaking, the  customers are taking the GST  fairly calmly. There has been  "grumbling," but virtually no  unpleasantness directed to  salespeople.  "I was more enraged than  any of my customers," said Tim  Enns. "1 guess most people are  used to having the government  ram things down their throats."  In all the confusion, the point  to remember is that the GST is  supposed to reduce the national  deficit ��� a "fact" which is supposed to make paying the GST  a little more patriotic, if not  palatable.  And speaking of patriotism,  the GST will, of course, be  charged on the purchase of any  Canadian flag.

McKibbin, who has attended  and given numerous seminars  on the GST, told the Coast  News in a recent interview that  small businesses and enterprises  would most likely feel the  weight of implementing the new  tax for the longest period of  time, saying, "they (the small  businesses) don't know how  they are going to deal with it,  most small businesses haven't  even thought about it in detail  yet... They don't have adequate  information."  The lack of information is the  primary reason for the present  confusion; despite the millions  of dollars spent for advertising  the tax, and despite its prominence in the consciousness of  most Canadians, when it was  finally unleashed on January I,  mayhem was, and continues to  be, the result.  McKibbin said the number  and degree of GST related problems varies from business to  business because the tax affects  all   businesses  differently.  First Baby Born  Erik Wayne Edward James Fuller planned it perfectly and  was born Just 32 minutes after midnight on January 1st to  become the first baby born on the Sunshine Coast in 1991.

He added that, as an accountant, even he isn't completely  sure (due to the woeful quantity  of information) how the tax will  be handled by many businesses.  "Most will have to improve  their bookkeeping at least," he  said.  Ideally, the GST would make  the final consumer of most products or services the ultimate  payer of the seven per cent tax;  however, the implementation of  the tax, according to McKibbin,  has made, in essence, all  businesses and enterprises, large  and small, agents for the  government and responsible for  the collection of the tax  throughout Canada.  McKibbin said he wasn't sure  how the government is going to  deal with the situation either; as  far as he knows, there is little in  the way of bureaucracy in place  to deal with the new workload  created by the tax and feels the  government will have to be  somewhat lax (possibly for as  long as the first year) before an  effective auditing system can be  errected.  An overview of some of the  complexities of the new tax  (designed to ensure the "end  consumer" is the one who pays)  can be had by examining the inner workings of the Coast News  office.  The Coast News, according  to McKibbin (accountant for  the paper), will pay the GST on  everything it purchases, from  the printing, to film, to new  equipment, etc., and will be required to charge the seven per  cent on every service it provides,  including all advertising, flyers,  photo reprints, etc.  The amount of tax the Coast  News is charged by other companies is to be subtracted from  the amount of tax accrued by  the paper through the sale of its  services, with the difference being paid to the government. If  the resulting sum were to reflect  a larger amount of tax being  paid by the newspaper, the  paper would be eligible for a  government rebate.  In the same way, this procedure affects all businesses the  Coast News deals with and they,  in turn, have a similar effect on  companies they deal with (the  printers are taxed when they  buy ink or paper, the ink  manufacturers are charged for  the ingredients in their ink, etc.,  etc., etc.) creating a domino effect without apparent end.  Coast News bookkeeper  Anne Thompson said that,  while the amount of turmoil the  Coast News can expect to experience is comparatively small  (because it is primarily a service  oriented business with limited  buying,) it still must document  every transaction, and even the  smallest receipt must have a  GST number for verification.  "When the (Coast News) van  is gassed up, the GST paid on  that gas must be recorded if it's  to be used as a credit," said  Thompson, "even the sale of  each $4 classified ad needs to be  taxed and recorded."  Warren McKibbin said, "the  businesses will end up paying a  net amount, but in order to find  that net amount, people will  have to know what their credits  Please turn to page 15  Hours: J J  9:30 am - 6 pm     11 am ��� 5 pm  Fridays 'Till 9 pm   Sun. & Holidays  PRICES EFFECTIVE:  Monday, Jan. 7/91  to Sunday, Jan. 13/91  Fresh ��� Bone-In  Whole or Half  PORK  LOIN  kg 3.92 |b  Cut Into Chops  kg 4.37 lb  1.98  Previously Frozen ^��� ^^^   ^^^  Side Sparoribs 4        Q ^%  PORK.mi...

When I put in the notice for  the supper, I was sort of playing  "Devil's Advocate" when I  mentioned burning Christmas  trees. I wondered if there would  be any comments about it and  there was, from one of the new  aldermen.  As it turned out, we haven't  burned trees for many years,  usually because of the weather,  but this year, 1 guess, it will be  the end of a tradition because of  the environment.

Hope  you all had a pleasant holiday  with some good memories on  which to look back this time  next year.  At Welcome Beach Hall the  Friday card days are again  underway, with bridge on the  first and third Fridays of each  month and general card games  on the second and fourth  Fridays... Time is at I pm.  There are still some openings  for shuffleboard players one  night a week and Barbara  Crimsey is the one to call at  885-9860 for information.  Unfortunately, the New  Year's dance at the hall had to  be cancelled as most folks were  a bit wary of the road conditions just at that time. Must  have been a disappointment to a  lot of people, so maybe next  year the weather will be more  favorable for driving.  Ben Robinson's karate classes  get going again on Wednesday,  January 9, from 7 to 8:30 pm,  at Coopers Green Hall, and on  HARBOUR WATCH  Thursdays, at Halfmoon Bay  School ��� same times. Everyone  is welcome to come along and  join in.  Also at the school, there is a  special fitness class tonight,  January 7, from 7:30 to 8:30,  sponsored by the Welcome  Beach pre-school. There is a  drop-in fee of $4 for this jazz  workout by Mokie.  The Halfmoon Bay Branch  of St. Mary's Hospital will hold  their next meeting on Monday,  January 14, at Welcome Beach  Hall, starting at 10 am. Come  along and bring a friend.  ON THE ROAD  We spent the Christmas holiday up in the mountains this  year, at Apex Alpine ski resort,  where snow conditions were  perfect and where, although  very beautiful, it was cold!  We came home via the Co-  quihalla Highway and found it  to be a most spectacular winter  drive. I believe the word  awesome applies to the scenery.  Unfortunately, it was actually  too cold to stop and take pictures.  That part of the drive, plus  the road along Okanagan Lake  had good winter driving conditions and other drivers were  sane. Then we hit the freeway  coming into Vancouver and the  nightmare began.  There was glare ice and crazy  drivers who were stupid enough  to pass and who invariably  wound up in the ditch...  It was interesting to note that  the price of gas was higher on  the Sunshine Coast than  anywhere else all the way  through to Kelowna. It was  even higher than in Vancouver  where there is a road tax which  entitles the gas stations to  charge a bit more than here.  Gas was up to 10 cents a litre  cheaper just past Hope and all  the rest of the way, which made  us wonder who establishes the  price here and if each service  station agrees, thus eliminating  any chance of a price war on the  Sunshine Coast. An interesting  thought.  It would be a shame if those  of us, who make a point of supporting our local stations, find  that we can gas up cheaper  elsewhere.  New Year's party round-up  by Jacalyn Vincent  NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTIES  Here is a brief rundown of some  of the parties that took place on  New Year's Eve. Around 63  people enjoyed Rick Ears perform at the Garden Bay Pub  until 2:30 pm, along with a  super buffet dinner and dancing. Everyone had a fantastic  time. The Royal Canadian  Legion opened their doors to 45  dancing people. The leisurely  evening was a total success. The  Roost, at the Pender Harbour  Hotel, showed 40 guests a super  evening. Many are coming back  next year. Jolly Roger sat 131  people to a full dinner, then toe-  tapped until 3 pm to Jess Lee  and the Boys. A great time was  enjoyed by all.  BOYS, AND THEN THERE  ARE BOYS  Two healthy baby boys saw  the light for the first time in  December 1990. Dee Dee Kam-  merle gave birth to Kyle Mcln-  tre, weighing seven pounds and  13 ounces. Christy and Stewart  Hately welcomed into the world  Oliver, weighing eight pounds  and 11 ounces. The boys are the  first child for each family. We  all join in with the proud grandparents and family to give con-  gragulations and wish all the  best to both families!  AS THE TIDE CHANGES  A reminder that crib night is  Tuesday   and   dart   night   is  Thursday, at the Legion Hall.  Both start at 8 pm. Also Saturdays at 3 to 4 pm, is the famous  meat draw.  A hardy hello welcomes little  Peter, who just arrived to  Canada from the Philipines.  Dave and Annie Christian are  very pleased indeed to have  their little boy finally home.

For  all the hoopla and arrangements  made to have that night free to  celebrate, few people actually  tave that wild. Times Square  type of experience.  Most people seem to prefer a  quiet evening at home, probably  even going to bed before midnight. Because it's lumped in at  the end of a month long trek of  preparation, anticipation and  celebration, we tend to just fall  into the new year like it was a  big comfortable mattress, ending the whole party instead of  beginning a new one.  The Chinese New Year at the  end of January would be much  better timing for us because  there is enough distance from  the December rush to more fully  appreciate that particular  passage of time.  The way it is, we won't see  another statutory holiday until  the end of March, when there  will be two, back to back again.

According to my varied but  reliable weather forecasting  sources, we are in for another  month of cold, typically Canadian winter weather.

(Or, at least  this was what Premier Vander  Zalm suggested in July when he  visited the Coast to make a symbolic weld and stir up the  hoopla.)  But by the end of the year it  was clear that if the pipeline  company has its way, only those  on the Coast most profitably  situated will be hooked up initially.  Sechelt and Gibsons ���  among a dozen municipalities  ��� rang out the year fighting to  secure at least fair and equitable  gas agreements. This story is  definitely one which will play an  important role in the news of  1991.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (through the Economic  Development Commission,)  after three years of planning,  paid out $2.3 million for 470  acres near Port Mellon for the  Hillside Industrial Park. The effort was spearheaded by EDC  Chairman Maurice Egan and  Economic Development Officer  Bill Moore.  In Port Mellon, Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper completed a  multi-million dollar  "upgrading" which resulted in  their proclaiming themselves  one of the most modern mills in  the world. Controversy still occasionally swirled around the  facility's environmental protection policies and safeguards.  Continuing controversy and  conflict over forestry practises  prompted activism on the  Tetrahedron Plateau, paced by  the committed and growing  Tetrahedron Alliance.  Members of the Sunshine  Coast Environmental Protection Project (SCEPP) and their  grassrool   supporters  picketed  and blockaded areas where Vision was to be sprayed, and  eventually won what they saw as  a significant victory in their attempts to have all pesticides and  herbicides banned from the  Sunshine Coast.  Developer Hayden Killam  triggered a sustained firestorm  of criticism and opposition wich  prolonged his attempt to have  his Gospel Rock acreage re-  zoned, so that he might build a  greater number of homes in the  area which, aside from being  much beloved by the public,  was considered to be environmentally sensitive.  After failing to win his rezon-  ing bid, Killam startled and  enraged many when, in  November, he dispatched a  drilling crew to Gospel Rock,  intending to blast and level it.  Forty-eight holes were drilled by  the time public opinion and  governmental pressure kept  Killam from destroying the  landmark. But the last has yet  to be heard from Mr. Killam  with regard to his controversial  property and his plans for it.  A decision by School Board  No. 46 to modify their French  Immersion program created a  tremendous protest on the part  of those parents who insisted  their children remain in the full  French Immersion program.  They sued the Board and  eventually lost. And while this  past December's elections vindicated the School Board's actions, the issue left a residue of  hostility and bitterness in its  wake.  In Garden Bay, bitterness  and controversy flowed from illegal float installations made by  the Seattle Yacht Club on the  foreshore rights of writer Edith  Daly. Mrs. Daly and Tier sup  porters fought a long and bitter  battle which polarized many  elements of the corrnniinity.  Although winning a partial victory, Mrs. Daly's story ��� and  all its ramifications ��� must be  filed under the "To Be Continued" column.  After 18 years of filming one  of the CBC's most successful  and popular television series ���  The Beachcombers ��� Bruno  Gerussi and the rest of the cast  and crew said farewell to  Molly's Reach, their make  believe hang-out in Gibsons.  Gibsonites of all stripes  found the parting to be just as  bittersweet as it can be in the,  well, the movies or television.  In late September, in Sechelt,  a record-breaking number of  voters flocked to the polls to  register their overwhelming  disapproval of the Block Seven  referendum. Saying 'no' to the  spending of massive amounts of  their tax dollars to build what  some regarded as a "pie-in-the-  sky" and largely extravagant  municipal complex, the  measure's defeat prompted then  Mayor Tom Meredith to announce bitterly that he would  not seek another term.  In November, voters up and  down the coast turned out for  municipal and other elections  which saw a totally new government in Gibsons, a new mayor  and two new aldermen in  Sechelt, the same cast of SCRD  Directors, and a single new face  on the School Board.  Should the vigourous upsurge  in activism of all types carry  over into this new year, and  there is no reason to suppose it  won't, it can be said with certainty that news along the Sunshine Coast will continue to  prove stimulating, informative,  interesting,   entertaining.

See story.  Twenty-three school chidren  from Gibsons' Cedargrove  Elementary got a bird's eye view  of BC recently���without leaving  the ground.  Accompanied by their  teacher Don Van Week to Vancouver this past December 19,  the kids visited the 23 meter by  25 meter Challenger Relief Map  of British Columbia as part of a  geography lesson.  "I've brought kids to see this  map for years," enthused Van  Kleek said. The Challenger  Map, which is laid out in the  center of the PNE's British Columbia Building, was the brainchild of the late George  Challenger, who designed and  built the structure.  The map contains approximately I million individually  handcrafted pieces of plywood.  A gantry travelling the full  length of the map itself gave  Don Van Kleek and his kids the  opportunity to examine every  corner of BC���"...from a 150  kilometers up!" The map was  first purchased by the PNE in  1952. "It is really one of the  most fantastic teaching tools  available," noted Van Kleek.  Last summer, the map went  through a refurbishing process  which included repainting the  large expanse of ocean,  highlighting the permanent  glacier ice packs, and relabelling  some 400 location names. There  is also a plan underway to further upgrade the map by adding  a number of high-tech features  such as laser beams and an interactive computer display.  "Awesome!" muttered one  of Don Van Week's charges as  the class filed out.  Like���what more can one  say?  ROBERTS CREEK  A wondrous Creek winter  by Janice Uighton, 886-3541  This is the first White  Christmas I've experienced in  these parts for about 25 years.  I'm really glad we weren't  travelling so we could avoid its  icy roads and enjoy its finer  aspects here in Roberts Creek.  Before Christmas, it snowed  and the kids, on holiday from  school, and I went sliding at the  Golf Course, a local Roberts  Creek attraction. Other kids  and families were there in those  picturesque surroundings having a good time.  It was enlightening to wake  up Christmas morning to the  world in a blanket of white soft  snow, the tree inside cozy and  warm with lights and decorations, but most of all the  presents. Opening the presents  while watching tiny snowfiakes  freshen the already white  ground made this Christmas so  very special.  A season's must is always a  trip to the Weal's Christmas  Lights. We've been there for the  past four years and every time,  as with this year, we've enjoyed  it. The intriguing optical illusions created from coloured,  blinking lights is mesmerizing.  The setup is amazingly well  done with the scenes of Santa;  the reindeer and elves amidst  the snow; the running creek  water; the Christmas music;  plus the dancing colored lights.  The Nativity scene was at peace  in its white carpet, while the  electric train chugged its circuit  around and through the station  scene. It was a marvelous  cooperative creation by the  Weals and the Roberts Creek  Fire Department.  The blue moon lit up New  Year's Eve, bouncing  moonbeams off the glistening  snow and the snow fort got built  necessitating a snowball fight to  ensue. A glowing night to make  merry with others. Shots fired  at midnight reminded me of  growing tensions in the Middle  East, the dread of war, and the  need to focus on Peace. A  farewell greeting from a friend  was, "Peace, Brothers."  New Year's Day was bright  and sunny and not quite so  cold. The Bowl games claimed  intent interest as the fans watched football and more football.  The Washington Huskies, my  alma mater, went to the Rose  Bowl in Pasadena and chewed  up Iowa. At dusk at the mouth  of Roberts Creek, a flotilla of  floating hurricane candles  drifted miles in the Georgia  Strait signifying the lengthening  of daylight, a journey of light  into dark or whatever the experience illuminated.  It's been a pleasantly eventful  holiday in Roberts Creek. Happy New Year. Let's Give Peace  a Chance.  r-pew LIFE FELLOWSHIP  CENTRE  New Testament Church  SS38 Wharf Rd., Sechelt  Sun.

Ken Bell who compiled this  book was a still photographer in  the Film and Photo Unit of the  Canadian Army in WWII  throughout the campaign in  Northwest Europe from D-day  to VE day, and for a year  following that in the army of  occupation.  Later in 1988, he published  The Way We Were, a wide-  ranging book of photos and text  selected from a number of  sources showing Canadians in  all their campaigns in  WWII���Dieppe, Sicily and Italy, Northwest Europe���along  with recent shots of the same  countryside long since restored  to peaceful, pleasant life.  Long before this publication,  Ken's Curtain Call, 19S3, a  book of photos contrasting  scenes of war and peace five  years afterward, set the pattern  for these later two.  Six other books on a variety  of subjects reveal the skill and  artistry of this photographer. In  MgJI gnd His Mission, he  depicts Cardinal Leger in his  ministry with lepers in the  Cameroons.  Then there is Collecting  Canada's Past and The  Kerosene Era in North  America. One, with text by  Celia Franca, portrays the National Ballet of Canada over the  25 years that Ken Bell was their  official photographer.  After lengthy research and  field work came a pictorial  history of the Royal Canadian  Regiment which he undertook  as a gift to the unit upon its  centenary in 1983. And another  book, again a donation of his  time and skill, salutes the  centenary of the Royal Canadian Military Institute in 1990.  "Books have not been a  source of income," said Bell.  "Photography and design have.  After graduating from Central  Technical School in Toronto in  1931,1 got my firtst job with a  photographer. The pay���$5.00  a week.

Here Ken renews acquaintance with Bill Grant of  Hopkins, a fellow photographer  in WWII days.  Ken went through the whole  campaign in Europe from  D-day to VE day returning to  Canada after a year of the occupation in the rank of major.  He continued service in the  militia with the Royal Regiment  of Canada first as a company  commander, then its battalion  commanding officer from 1962  to 1965, and honorary colonel  in 1985.  In his home work area, Ken  has hung many photos he has  taken of notable people; the official one of Lester Pearson,  others of Edmund Hilary,  Mother Teresa���which she signed for him; members of the  Royal family, the Trudeaus,  and others.  Honors conferred upon him  have been numerous; the Order  of St. John, a city of Toronto  citation, an eighth bar to his  Master of the Photographic  Arts, fellow of the Ontario College of Art, where for some  years he was instructor. And  there's the Lifetime Achievement Award he received in  1986, the first ever awarded by  the Canadian Association. of  Photographers and Illustrators  in Communication.  One citation noted that Ken  Bell had changed the public's  image of the photographer from  that of craftsman to that of artist.  Bell said in the National  Ballet of Canada that the rapid  technical development of  photographic equipment enabled him "to express in  ! turn to page 11  Post Office robbery  Sometime during the holidays ��� quite possibly on  Christmas Day, ��� one or more felons broke Into the Gibsons  Post Office and made off with an as yet undetermined  ���mount of money and goods.  How the robbery was actually effected remains unknown  at this time, and the RCMP are currently Investigating the  matter. Constable Off Moss of the Gibsons detachment told  the Coast News that "Nobody really knows what the sums of  cash taken are from the mail and parcels stolen."  The police report indicates that some four to five hundred  dollars is missing from the Post Office surplus cash fund.  ���^-Mi^^-r^ >**'���<'  Will UPHOLSTERY  ��� Wad BOAT TOPS ltd  637   Wyngaert   Rd.,   Gibsons  -7310  COFFEE  for your office or  place of business  ���Coffee brewers supplied  at no charge  ���Weekly coffee delivery  Great selection  ���Coffee set-ups for meetings  YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND AT  r>ocksfDe  pbaRrnaqy  441 Marine Drive, Gibsons   888-8158  SEVEN DA YS A WEEK:  A 3   K      YOUR      P   H   A   R   M   A  Stop Scratching Your Head About Dandruff  Wishful Thinking  New Selection of  TROPICAL  FISH  "It's not snowing on my  shoulders! it just looks that  way.

But after many years in this  weather, I look forward to the  usual warming trend and simply  say to the local town's folk that  it will warm up eventually.  In my note to Jean  Wyngaert, I opined the days  when the old Women's Institute  Hall was alive with all things  Christmas and community and  this caused her to tell of the  welcoming back of the old girl  saying: "The old WI Hall is going strong now. We had a lot of  activities going on there last  December 15th. We had a big  bake sale, crafts, flowers,  ceramics and coffee, and the  hall was packed."  The Beachcombers may be  gone but not Harry and Marg  Smith as I am reminded of their  annual calendar and greeting in  red silver and gold...

Coast News, January 7,1991  LI5UR.C  Kinsmen Mothers9  March this month  PAGES FROM A LIFE-LOG  Calm return from the Charlottes  by Peter Trower  Hecate Strait is uncharacteristically calm on our  return from the Charlottes. But  it is a strange journey for all  that. By one o'clock am, people  are stretched out all over the  main lounge like survivors from  a shipwreck.  Yvonne and 1 unroll our  sleeping bags and follow suit.  There seems to be no way to  turn off the lights and they remain blazing like lights in  prison. I crawl under a table to  escape their glare but (he  carpeted sleel deck is hard and  unyielding. I have slept on a few  floors before in my time���but  never in a sober condition.  Finally, from sheer exhaus-  lion, 1 manage lo drift off for a  couple of hours. We dock in  Prince Rupert around six am  with grey daylight breaking over  ilie old seaport town.  As with Kilimat, both  Yvonne and I have memories of  Rupert the way it was years ago.  She lived here for a lime in the  late 40's and 1 spent a few weeks  in the town during the same  period. I don't recall the place  with a great deal of fondness.  My brother and 1 became  stranded there after quitting the  Charlottes and my recollections  are a blurry montage of scruffy  pubs, rundown rooming  houses, over-zealous cops and  almost perpetual rain.  Prince Rupert today bears  small resemblance to the  skidroad-like town 1 remember.  Most of the shabby bars and  cheap flops have long since  vanished, replaced by more  modern    buildings.    Not  everything has changed,  however.  We have breakfast in an old  cafe where Yvonne's mother  once worked in the post-War  years. And, yes, it is raining.  We head back to Lakelse  through what is touted to be one  of the five most beautiful stretches of country in North  America. It is certainly impressive terrain���high crags ribboned with waterfalls and the  great Skeena flowing placidly  among cotionwood trees of a  curiously even height.  The effect is dulled a bit by  dri/zlc and low-lying clouds.  "You should see it on a sunny  day," Yvonne says. "It's really  spectacular."  Back al our cozy lakeside  headquarters, we unwind from  our Queen Charlotte adventures  and plan our next moves. I  decide I had better slay home  for a couple of days and gel the  story started. Yvonne elects to  do a bil of research and exploration of her own.  She is anxious lo track down  a community called Cedarvale,  founded by one of the early  missionaries. She manages to  locate the once-thriving settlement near Kilwanga and spends  several hours with a Native  woman who once lived there.  She now runs a private museum  and is a fount of information  about Cedarvale and the surrounding area.  I keep my nose to the journalistic grindstone and by the  third day have hacked out a  rough draft of the Charlottes'  piece. We decide to make our  journey to Kitselas Canyon���this time, along the right  trail.  Picking up another permit  from the Band Office, we set  out across the Reserve property.  A short distance in, the trail  forks confusingly. There is absolutely no indication which  way we should take.  The left branch looks the  most likely and we start along  this past a newly-built log cabin,  only to reach a dead end. We  return to the juncture and  follow the right fork through a  recently-logged area. The slash  ends and we enter standing  limber again. The path dips  downward. At last we seem to  be on the right track.  We are moving now through  a very old and stunted forest  that has obviously never been  logged. The trees are mossy and  undersized. There is virtually no  underbrush.  Al one point, we stumble  across a rock post covered with  cryptic markings. It looks for all  the world like some sort of Indian milestone. Again the path  forks but this lime the way is  marked by sticks placed on the  ground lo form crude arrows.  to be continued...  January 1991 has been set  aside for the 38th Annual  Kinsmen Mothers' March. During the first two weeks, the  focus will be on public  awareness, followed by the  March from January 15th to  31st.  The Kinsmen Mothers'  March started when concerned  Kinsmen and Kinettes in BC  held a one-hour porch-light blitz  in 1953 to raise money for those  disabled during the polio  epidemic. That concern for  their neighbors led Kinsmen to  found the Kinsmen Rehabilitation Foundation (KRF) in 1972.  Last year, the KRF provided  equipment, technical aids, and  emergency travel assistance to  more than 6000 people in  British Columbia.  The Mothers' March has  grown from the one-hour blitz  to a campaign spanning 16  days. Last January, more than  25,000 volunteers raised $1.4  million by canvassing door-to-  door in their communities.  The Kinsmen and Kinette  Clubs will again be organizing  the Kinsmen Mothers' March in  communities throughout the  province and they have planned  special events to promote the  campaign in many of them.  Creek library notes  The staff of Roberts Creek  Library extend New Year  greetings lo all our friends and  readers. Do come in to see us;  we would much rather say it in  person.  With the New Year, we are  turning a new page in our  history and changing our system  slightly, hoping to serve you  better.  It is now membership time,  and you will be asked to fill in a  short form when you register. A  library card will be issued from  now on. Using standard library  practise, this must be presented  lo obtain books. This card can  be used by the whole family and  is still a bargain at $3 (and no  GST.) Should any family  member wish to carry a separate  library card, for convenience  sake, another form and $3 will  do the trick.  We now have file cards for all  the paperbacks, and the hardcover books. This will make it  easier for you lo find the book  you want. Book reservations  should be more efficient too, so  reserve the book you'd like. Do  please remember thai request  books must be picked up within  a week of our calling you.  Once in place, (he new system  will not allow us to list titles or  numbers of books you may  have at home, so make a note of  il when you check Ihe books  out.  Bear with us please. We will  soon be in the swing of things  and life will be simpler. Once  again, a very happy 1991 to you  all. Wc hope to see you at the  library soon and often.  Humanitarians  According to John Watson, Director of Immigration for Ihe  BC/Yukon Region, BC is leading the country in dealing with  backlog refugee claims.  British Columbia continued to have the highest acceptance  rale on humanitarian and compassionate grounds ��� 41 per  cent compared to the national rate of 20 per cent. This  reflects the higher percentage rate of regugee claimants in  Vancouver from strife-torn countries such as Iran and regions  such as Central America.

I want to go  to Russia, or train at the  Vaganova School. I want to be  famous, 1 want to dance with  people."  These words, coming from  someone else, might sound arrogant, but when Joanna  McDermid says them quietly,  and with determination, it's just  a simple statement of fact.  This 16 year old Sechelt ballet  dancer is prepared to work hard  to get to her goal. Besides being  a top academic student at Crof-  ton House School, she puts in  long hours as a student and  dancer at the Coh Ballet  Academy, a professional dance  company in Vancouver.  Recently the Coast News interviewed Joanna, her mother  Linda and their friend, Verity  Purdy, one of Joanna's early  dance teachers.  Joanna has been dancing for  nine years. She got her early  training with local teachers  Deborah Pageau, Laurie Dunn  and Jean Stoneham-Orr, prima  ballerina with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Norman Legatt  and Verity Purdy.  At the Goh Academy she  studies with Choo Chiat Goh  and Lin Yee Goh who came to  Vancouver from the Beijing  Ballet Company in China.

The Gohs trained in England  and China, and Dolgushin and  Moisseeva (rained in Russia, so  Joanna feels she has "the best  of both worlds."  Joanna has wanted to dance  for so long that she can't  remember when it started. "I  know what I want to do," she  said. "A lot of my friends don't  know if they want to be  dancers.  "But I do know. In the summer with Nikila and Sophia,  thai was it. I worked so hard,  but il felt really good. They  were so strict and exact. They  rehearsed everything, every  minute detail. That was one of  my best summers, because of  Ihe hard work."  Bui there's a price to pay for  this kind of dedication. Joanna  has very little of what she calls a  'normal' life. There isn't time  for the social life thai her school  friends enjoy. She sometimes  feels she is losing track of these  school friendships, but she has  many friends in her dancing  world.  There was a difficult time  recently when a close friend, a  fellow dancer, quit. "We had a  wonderful performance, and  Ihen she quit," said Joanne.  ^GIBSONS  jpLEGION  Branch 109  Members and Guests Welcome  &t  *&$>  "She went out with a bang.  "But she decided she didn't  want the life of a dancer. She  loved the ballet, which most  people do, but she couldn't put  up with the long hours, the going home exhausted, the hurting  and bleeding toes, the behind  the scenes jealousies, the moving from place to place, missing  school life and stuff like that ���  being normal.  "She loved it but she had to  be normal. She felt that wasn't  for her. And 1 started to think,  do I want to be normal?  "Then one day we learned ?  new dance, a Spanishy dance,  with tambourines. 1 was feeling  a little depressed because my  friend had just quit, and I  didn't feel loo optimistic about  myself. Then the music started  playing. It was difficult, but it  was also jusl a fun class. That's  what made me keep on. I loved  the music. I remembered why I  was dancing."  Joanna also plays the piano,  and she has a clear understanding of the interaction between  music and dance. "That's one  of the reasons ballet is so  wonderful," she exclaims.  "Through your body you can  show the music! It's amazing,  you can feel the music!"  Joanna and Linda and Verity  all agreed thai dancing is "a  family affair."  "If they're not with you, you  can have a very difficult time,"  commented Verity. "The struggle to get there can be a long  hard road for the whole  family."  "If it hadn't been for Verity,  who knows if we would have  hung on," said Linda. "Sometimes the line gets stretched very  thin."  When Joanna was still going  to Sechelt Elementary School,  she and her mother would go to  Vancouver three and four times  a week for lessons. "We packed  lunches and ate on the ferry,"  remembers Linda.  Now, an apartment in Vancouver makes it somewhat  easier, but home is still in  Sechelt and there are still many  hurried trips back and forth.  "We couldn't have done it  without my husband's support  and encouragement," stressed  Linda. "He's the one who has  made it all possible."  And Joanna agreed. "He's  given up so much for us. It's  almost as if he's given up his  family life for this."  Five years ago, a unique  Christmas present for Joanna  was a specially designed ballet  practice studio in the basement  of their home, complete with  barres, a full wall of mirrors  and a hardwood floor.  "It was such a surprise," she  said.

However, there comes a time when the prospect of one more homecooked meal just doesn't seem to  be appetizing, not to mention the lack of appeal caused by (hat huge pile of dirty dishes which always  emerges in the kitchen afterwards. Our solution was to spare the relatives and to quietly descend on  Roberts Creek's own Creekhouse for an evening of blissful solitude.  By the time I had begun perusing the menu, the thought of sparing my poor hands another hour-long  session of pot scrubbing ceased to enter the issue. We were no longer dining out to escape a messy house,  we were dining out because our taste buds were prepared for the meal of the year.  My palate was awakened with a glass of Tio Pepe and then fully aroused by the smoked salmon  crepes with cream cheese and caviar. Presented in a visually pleasing manner, this hors d'ocuvres is truly  delicious, only my manners prevented me from ordering an encore.  I chose to refresh my palate with a crisp caesar salad that was the prelude to my main course of Squab  roasted with back bacon, mushrooms and shallots flambeed with Grappa. It was indeed as good as it  sounds. Afterwards, I was satiated and had begun to fully appreciate the good cheer aspect of Christmas  when my mind took on the expansive outlook it tends to acquire after an exquisite meal.  The Creekhouse has solved the question of what wine to select with one's meal hy indicating  thtoughout their menu recommended wines for each dish. Curiously enough the suggested wine for my  non-blood meal was a red Cotes du Ventoux, a combination 1 found very pleasing.  Throughout this delightful evening my wife had placed herself in the capable hands of the  Creekhouse's chef and requested a vegetarian meal. The result was as superb as my conventionally  ordered dinner. She had the artistically presented house salad followed by a baked cheese and spinach  creation which was creative and delicious.  It was with refreshed bodies and souls that the two of us departed the Creekhouse for home. A  memorable meal to celebrate a memorable time of the year.

Rugby enthusiasts,  our second half approaches  swiftly.  That's right, with the past  few Januarys as pleasant as  they were, the VRU scheduler  has slotted the beginning of the  next half on Jan. 12. This is in  hopes of catching up on those  last few weeks lost at the tail  end of the first half. As jolly  Saint Nick would say, ho, ho,  ho. Don't think we're going to  be out there at this point.  Dream of heat, warm mud, ah,  rugby is in the air.  With  this  in  mind,  "A"  Strikes  and spares  reminder that things are getting  back into the swing. That's  right, it's better (and suggested)  to be in shape for this truly  wonderful adventure.  Hoping to end the miserable  (but enthusiastic) slump that the  club has been in, we're going  back out there to do our best,  and possibly put the elusive  "W" on the board.

"The introduction of this  species could have disastrous effects on our natural stocks  through the introduction of  diseases," club President  Robert Bull argued in the letter  released late last week.  "At this time there is one fish  hatchery (that we know of) on  the peninsula which is incubating Atlantic Salmon  eggs... If this fish hatchery is incubating these...eggs... without  a permit, we believe it should be  stopped immediately."  Bull went on to note that "we  understand that this species is  being introduced to this area  because the farming of native  species has not been financially  successful... We are all aware of  the problems faced by the fish  farms in this area that are trying  to rear native species...so how  can we allow another species to  be introduced until it has been  proven not to be detrimental to  our area."  Insisting that his organization  is not opposed to fish farming  per se, Mr. Bull suggested that  "...if and when it does affect  our wild stocks (then) it has a  direct impact on our tourist industry, our recreational opportunities, and our environment.  It is up to the appropriate  government agencies to protect  the good of its people over the  profits of foreign investors."  Copies of the Rod and Gun  club's letter were also dispatched to the Ministry of  Agriculture and Fisheries, the  Ministry of Environment, as  well as to the Department of  Fisheries and Oceans.  Continued from page 13  know what it was, I had no idea  it was for me."  When asked what advice she  could give an aspiring dancer,  Joanna replied, "That's a hard  question. I would say ballet is a  wonderful art.  "You can't explain the hard  work involved. You don't know  what it is until you experience it.  It's a long hard road. It really is.  If you really want to be a  dancer, you should never lose  sight of your goal.  "1 lost sight of it for a little  while, a couple of years actually. 1 just kept going and going  and I didn't think about what 1  was doing. It was just because it  was habil and I forgot why I  was doing it.  "Then 1 regained it. 1 realized  that was what 1 wanted to do  and it helped me so much to  remember what it was I was  working for. The couple of  years I lost sight of what I was  doing it was very, very difficult  because of course, you have no  goal. You just go day by day  and you really don't know what  you're doing.  "But if you really want to be  a dancer, you have lo love it.  You have to, because it's one of  those things you have to be willing to sacrifice a lot for. But in  return you get great rewards."  This spring, Joanna will be  going to Switzerland for the  prestigious Prix de Lausanne  competition at the Theatre de  Beaulieu where she will be competing with student dancers  from all over the world. She  must prepare two variations,  one from the traditional ballet  repertoire, and one from the  work of a contemporary  choreographer.  For Joanna, the rewards are  both the process of getting there  and the goal. And one of the  biggest rewards comes when  there is someone in the audience  she loves.  "It makes it so special when  people you love are out there,"  she said. "It's almost as if  you're dancing just for them."  j ���  OK, SO IT LOOKS GREAT.  GET THOSE BRAKES CHECKED!  886-8213  GST confusion  Continued from page 5  (the taxes they've paid) are,"  and rigorous bookkeeping of  the smallest details is the only  way to ensure proper crediting.  The whole purpose for the  tax is to raise more money for  the government and to do it  quicker, but when asked about  the government's reasons for installing the tax in the confusing  manner they have, McKibbin  said, he thinks it was a political  decision designed to appease the  large number of people in this  country who live "below the  poverty line."  Most of the GST's confusion  results from the government's  decision not to tax the  "necessities" of everyday living.  The government's attempt to  isolate items considered  "necessities" has resulted in the  need to have the tax paid on  every purchase or service in addition to the regular retail price.  McKibbin suggested that a  tax on everything, burried in the  price of items at the retail level,  with tax rebates being paid to  those below the poverty line,  might have alleviated much of  the present anguish.  McKibbin suggested that a  tax on everything, buried in the  seven per cent. He said that  every country that has instituted  this form of taxation has raised  its rate, except for Finland.  Finland, however, started its  version of the GST at 22 per  cent.  Sore Knees!  Legs Tired! I |  Callouses!  Sore Heels!  Do Your Feet Hurt?

Coast News, January 7,1991  Real estate and the GST  by Dave Mewhort  I don't know about you, but  here it is into January and I'm  still here. I seem to be surviving  the GST (so far.) Like it or not,  it appears that we'll all have little choice but to continue to survive the GST.  The GST build-up has been  incredible... as have been the  misconceptions. Confusion surrounding the GST particularly  as it applies to the Real Estate  Industry continues to build!  The purpose of this article is  not to be "for" or "against"  the GST, but rather to clarify  how it will work, in relation to  our real estate industry. I hope  it is helpful.  To understand the GST, we  need to remember the bottom  line. GST attempts lo lax the  final consumer, and only the  final consumer. For example, in  the production of a product like  a roof truss, ihe sawyer cuts the  wood and sells the lumber to a  truss company.  The truss company pays  seven per cent GST but gels it  100 per cent rebated. The  builder buys the truss and also  pays the seven per cent GST,  but again gets it 100 per cent  rebated. Then comes the final  consumer, who pays the seven  per cent GST... end of story.  All goods and services are taxed  in this way.  As it applies to Real Estate,  one should realize that used  houses and the resale of lots are  not taxable under the GST. On  the other hand, newly-created  lots (being sold for the first  lime) and brand new houses are  taxable under the GST. The  GST rale is seven per cent.  But before you get too  depressed, there are some rules  thai help soften the blow. First  of all, if you purchase a new  home and pay the seven per cent  GST, you are automatically  eligible for an immediate two  and a half per cent rebate! This  makes the net GST rate four  and a half per cent.  In addition, it should be  remembered thai the introduction of the GST came hand-in-  hand with the elimination of the  Federal Manufacturer's Sales  Tax (MST). This hidden lax applied to most building materials  in new homes and was applied  at a rale of 13.5 per cent. Since  materials comprise about 30 per  cent of the cost of a new home,  the MST that used to apply to a  $100,000 new home was about  $4000.  In other words, the materials  will cost $4000 less (to  somebody.) As to whether the  supplier actually charges less,  and as to whether the builder  actually saves money and  charges las... your guess is as  good as mine. Experience tells  me the net effect of GST will be  somewhere between one per  cent to four and a half per cent  depending again on if the  sawyer, wholesalers and other  "middle people" hide the  eliminated MST savings as additional profit, or actually reflect  these savings in lower prices.  If il works the way GST proponents tell us it will, then the  various sub-trades will lower  ihcir prices lo the builder, who  in turn will be able to lower  his/her price to the final consumer by $4000. Seeing is  believing!  This is getting more complicated than the GST manual!  Basically, it's simple... if you  buy a used house, .there's no  GST. If you buy a lot that has  been sold before, there's no  GST. If you buy a new lot or  home, you pay seven per cent  GST (but are eligible for a two  and half per cent rebate.) The  before GST price of this new  house should drop by about  four per cent (but may not.)  Crystal clear, right?  All-in-all, the impact of the  GST will be significant, but not  insurmountable. I can't believe  that very many people able to  spend $100,000 plus on a new  home will stay out of the market  because of the GST.  The Sunshine Coast is one of  the most beautiful places  anywhere, and we will continue  to attract our share of new  buyers. Of course, we are not  totally immune to global  economic realities, but I believe  wc will continue to fare well in  the new year. In this day and  age, the GST in real estate is the  least of our worries.  I wish all your readers a happy and prosperous new year...  GST or not.

Support Amnesty  card campaign  Coast News, January 7,1991  19.  by Shirley Hal  "They wrote a thousand letters demanding that I be taken  to a doctor. Eventually the  government became very tired  of those letters. I was dragged  out of my solitary confinement  cell by the officer in charge of  the prison and taken to his office.  There were boxes of letters.  He was very mad. "Do you see  all these boxes?" he asked.  "How did these people know  that you are sick?"...  But you cannot imagine how  strong I became. For the first  time 1 had courage... knowing  that there are people, there are  human beings somewhere, people who love freedom, people  who would fight for freedom,  for justice. That letter you  write, that two-minute letter  you write to a prisoner or a  government has a lot of  impact...  I was dying and you saved  me. It was your letter."  Those are the words of  Maina wa Kinyatti, a former  prisoner of conscience in  Kenya.  The Sunshine Coast Amnesty  Group, along with several  classes of school children in the  district, is participating in this  campaign. We will be sending  greetings to selected prisoners  this month. These prisoners include men and women who  have been imprisoned for a  variety of reasons but all are  prisoners of conscience, i.e.  they have neither used nor advocated violence.  We will also be sending  greetings to the Grandmothers  of Plaza de Mayo in Argentina.  This is a group of grandmothers  who banded together in 1977 to  locate their missing grandchildren.  Anyone who would like to  participate in this year's greeting  card campaign is invited to attend Amnesty International's  meeting on Wednesday,  January 16, at 7 pm, at Sechelt  Elementary.  Or we can mail the information to you if you are unable to  get lo the meeting. Call Shirley  Hall at 883-1154 or Roger  Legasse at 885-7143. The  deadline for sending greetings is  January 31st.
