 THE  SUNSHINE  WHEN THE  LOCALS  EAT LOCAL  Overlooking the Harbour  Gibsons, B.C. 886-2268  V/A/<__t THE SUNSHINE COAST SINCE 1945  October 7,1991      Volume 45      Issue 40  iberts   Creek   students     following the provincial election are being visited by   local candidates to explain their platforms and  is wer   questions   pertinent     to their concerns. Liberal Gordon Wilson was first   at bat, followed by NDP Howard White, and  Social  Credit Harold Long.

Speaking at last Wednesday's  council meeting. Environment  Committee chairman Peggy  "Wagner told council that the  results of testing done on  Sechelt's water by the Health  A.uthority and the SCRD were  interpreted by two members of  fier committee, one with a background in chemistry and the  a Doctor of Immunology,  ley concluded Sechelt's water  is more acidic than is acceptable.  " The    District   of  Sechelt's  _t-__r��-v iron ment Committee has  reached the conclusion, based on  <_lata obtained from your offices  and the SCRD," began the letter  t_o Coast-Garibaldi, "that the  ���water supplies       of      the  Municipality of Sechelt may fall  short of the minimum  requirements of the Canadian  water supply guidelines."  ���>* ___�� letter went on to say that  a meeting between four council  members and the SCRD to  discuss the test results had been  "discouraging, we felt the results  P-Vfly WflyuM'  of our informal study were not  taken seriously."  "We were not being alarmist,"  Wagner explained to council.  "We simply wanted to ask for  their interpretation of the results  we had received"  When committee member and  former chemist John Burns was  asked by the Coast News about  the results of the water testing,  he stated the cause for concern.  "I think we only found one  test where (the pH of the  drinking water) was above the  Canadian water supply  guidelines minimum," he said,  adding that, on the pH scale of 1  to 14, the minimum allowable  pH was from 6.5 to 8.5.  He said the test results  analyzed indicate the pH of  Sechelt's drinking water has, in  at least one test, been as low as  the 3.0 area, something he  equated to "vinegar".  Burns noted that the analysis  questions  l__s  Ws\  Ito     ��_;��  n    Ferguson   Cthe day after the  sturbance):   "Nanoose cannot  *_t   in   touch   with Nimitz to ask  testions,    because   she   sailed  ssterday."   He  agreed to ask at  a r i t i in e Pacific HQ,  squimalt.       Six     days     later,  erguson said he had not yet re-  fived an answer - "It takes time  et   a   message to the Nimirz  *ioclc.~  Meanwhile,     however,    Lt.  levin   Carle of Esquimall toi.l ;i  aller   that  Nimitz has been con-  ted    and   confirmed  she was  l*oan����     maintenance   testing  on  lircraft     Thursday   night.   This  apparently    unknown   to  *s second-in-command.  -Some;     citizens    phoned   the  [artistry   of Transport  Aviation  iolations   office,  the  Regional  >istrict      and     the    Provincial  Emergency   Program,  asking a  ariety   of questions and ending  p     with    a    lot   more.   Why   do  inadian   military   officials ap-  not to know what the visil-  U_S-   ship  -was doing? Why  lad   Cop  .Nanoose officials insist  ship   carries   no jets  while  >ther    military   officials   stated  sine,   does,   a   weapons handbook  s carrying them and an  iyewitness claims to have seen  aa   the   noise   pollution  luthorized?     Will    it    happen  pain?  Of   particular  concern to the  group is the Nanoose offi-  il's     suggestion   the   nuclear  vessel   may   have re  leased surplus water?  "What kind of water?"  Griffith asks. "There is a radioactive coolant, whose accidental release is the most frequent error connected with reactor-powered vessels. A former U.S. Navy sub commander  has testified that coolant was  regularly released in foreign  waters without their hosts being told. Several of the vessels  that  visit Georgia Strait have  heen discovered doing this elsewhere.  "Thursday's incident evidently involved aircraft, not  steam. But what do we really  know for sure? Whal safeguards  do we have against accident or  anogance? When a ship, driven  hy Iwo reactors and carrying  IIM) nuclear weapons, is close  enough to he visible... it can do  more than rattle dishes,"  Griffith said.  made by the Environment  Committee could not be  considered conclusive because of  the relatively small amount of  material provided by the SCRD.  "We (made our analysts) based  on very little data; that surprised  us," he said. "Either (the SCRD)  had more data they weren't  giving us or they weren't taking  very many tests."  Burns said the purpose of the  letter lo the Coast-Garibaldi  Health unit was lo make them  aware of the situation and to get  more testing done to determine  the extent of the problem.  "Somebody with a technical  background should take a look at  our waler supply," Bunts said,  "somebody with credentials that  will be acceptable to the  SCRD."  Specifically, the letter to the  health unit requests that  provincial testing of Sechelt's  water supply be inslituted  "pointing out deficiencies, if  any, and making recommendations for remedial action."  The letter also requests that  the "technical surveillance of the  SCRD water system be increased  and Ihe results of that  surveillance be automatically  forwarded lo the District of  Sechell."  Burns attributes the apparent  acidity of Sechelt's water lo acid-  causing gases in the air and,  therefore, in the rain; and to  certain soil conditions found in  the Chapman Creek water shed  (the source of Sechelt's water).  __ ; ... i_ . _      __ __,   Pharmasave in Sechelt congrarulatea Lionel Thomas, winner of the "Win a  Jack Northway i  Chrysler Magicwagon" promotion held In conjunction with  local B.C.

Coast News, October 7,1991  Coast welcomes CF delegates  Approximately 100 Coast  residents and a solitary blue  heron welcomed delegates to the  Provincial Conference of the  Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on  Sept. 28. Tlie public was invited  lo show their support at a  banquet held at Pebbles  Restaurant, and the community  turned out in force.  Drs. Davidson and Hancock  Doctor Hancock  addressed the crowd, and Hancock  took the opportunity to  announce yel another  breakthrough in CF research.  Only two days prior to the  conference, Drs. Ann Tresize and  Manuel Buchwald, of Ihe  research team at the Hospital for  Sick Children in Toronto,  identified which cells in the body  are affected by CF.  This is the fourth major breakthrough in two years and the  third since a chapter was fonned  on the Sunshine Coast.  Chapter president Elva Dinn  told the Coasl News lhat  delegates were overwhelmed by  their reception on the Coast.  Drs. Davidson and Hancock,  who have devoted their lives to  CF research, were especially  pleased, she said, to have an  opportunity to talk lo llu*  public, being more accustomed  to addressing medical and  research professionals.  Following the speeches by the  doctors, local individuals took  the opportunity to show some of  the support they're becoming  famous for. Derrick La Fontaine  anil Karen Elliot of Dargatz  Glass presented Elva with a  cheque for $500, engraved on a  mirror. (Elva confided that they  slipped her a paper one for  cashing.)  Len Van Egmont presented her  with a Looney card with over  $200 in loonies attached  collected from the staff and  Elva Dinn  customers at the Lighthouse  Pub.  Adding a dash of the dramatic  were Bill and Myrm Brooks and  Dirk Mclntyire of Seasport  Scuba. The trio performed a skit  with a fierce pirate who was  eventually convinced to donate  his vast treasure ($1000) to the  Sunshine Coast CF Chapter in  exchange for a drink of nun.  The chapter also took the  opportunity to recognize the  contributions of several locals  with Certificates of  Appreciation. Recipients  included Roger Handling (of  Glassford Design), artists Liz  Mitten-Ryan and her publisher  Jaffar Nassrin.  During their stay delegates  were presented with pins from  the municipalities on the Coast  and a copy of Hellen Dawe's  Sechelt which was donated by  Gibsons Pharmasave.  Throughout the conference and  banquet, a blue heron perched  conspicuously within view of  the delegates. The blue heron  became something of a mascot  for the local chapter when Liz  Mitten-Ryan donated her first  painting, Towards the Promise',  which features the bird launching  itself down Sechelt Inlet toward  a rising sun.  Delegates from all over the  province returned to their homes  on Sunday, commenting on their  warm reception on the Sunshine  Coast, and the well-trained wild  life that resides here.  Directory  still  available  The Volunteer Action Cenlre compiled and printed a directory of  all the agencies, organizations and support groups on tht Sunshine  Coast.  This information has been put together in a 68 page booklet.  Information directories from Vancouver, Powell River and  Richmond were studied in order to develop Ihe format for this  directory. The result is a sourcebook of information, lhat is easy to  find and read.  These directories are available at Talewind Books, Rooks and  Stuff, Communily Services in Sechelt, Sayward Books and Coast  Books in Cibsons. The price is $5.-5, to cover Ihe cost or printing.

Marine Ave.,  Powell River  485-7225  THE FOREST SERVICE AND FOREST  MANAGEMENT  "1 see a need for improvements  in all logging practices. It's a  fact of life," Long asserts. " In  B.C., and especially on the  Coast, we survive on our timber. The day that tourism takes  over from lumber, and is paying  all the hills, wc can slop culling  our trees down. Right now  forestry and logging are a  necessity. We must clean up all  our logging practices, make sure  they're done right.  "We're still going to have to  clearcut, block clearcut in  smaller blocks, and so on.  Because that's llie only way you  can farm. You can't cut every  second sheave of wheal in the  prairies. You have lo cut il all  down so you can regrow it all  again....  "So tliere has to be more  controls on that...  "I think the Forest Service has  been put into a pull-push  situation between forestry and  environment and wildlife. Maybe  we should be putting those  ministries a little closer  together. Forestry, environment  and wildlife should all be in the  same ministry so they've got a  handle on everything that's  going on within our forest  systems.  "So I can sec them beefing up  Forestry, hut I see the private  sector doing belter too...  "Go to Sweden. They're on  Iheir fourth or fifth cut of trees.  Ihey don't have any chaff in Ihe  bush from first cut logging like  we do, We're going into our  second and third cuts now and  they're greal! On the Sunshine  Coasl you've got second cuts all  over the place, even block cuts,  and they're arc coming oul and  the people are working, and il's  good.  "And I think the companies  are trying to shun some of iheir  responsibilities. Remember they  make money off it too. They've  got to take some responsibility.  If you're going to make money  on it you also have to help with  the resource."  WASTE MANAGEMENT  "There should be no landfills.  If there's going to be a landfill it  should be a designated place and  there should only be ashes that  are buried. It should be burnt in  a high temperature incinerator  before it's buried, so it's inert.  Then it can be buried. It can be  sealed with grout and concrete  and then it's there and it's just  like part of the rock - it's not  going to leach; it's not going to  pollute.  "I've got a master plan on that  one in my mind," Long  confided. "I believe that the  provincial government, if I had  my way, would take total charge  of how we're going to handle our  solid waste and how big the  areas would Ih*.  "There's no reason that the  whole Lower Mainland,  including all Vancouver,  Victoria and that area, cannot be  done in one central location,  barged in.  "I would gladly say it right  now that there are places on the  Coast here where lhat could be  done. I have a place already in  mind..."  When asked if he meant the  Lower Sunshine Coast, Long responded, "You bet!"  "But you see what you're  looking at, you think about a  garbage dump, you're thinking  about landfill. I'm talking about  a plant that takes that process  and sorts.  "It should go through a plant.  It should be hardly any different  than one of the pulp mills.  Where it's taken in and separated  -glass, metal, rags, paper. It's  done through a separation  system... So you've got the  economy of scale lo get rid of  Ihe glass, to get rid of the cans,  get rid of the paper. So it goes  back into the system.  "Then whatevei's left they can  package il in fuel pellets and if  that's knitted directly lo a close  cement plant - that the  government may be involved  with how they build that  Incinerator, or the kiln for the  cement plant will hold the temperature at 2000 degrees for well  over a minute. This means that  you can burn all that again, all  the wet garbage, or compost it,  and end up with total  destruction.  "What do we do now? Eighy-  five percent goes into the  landfills.  "I've seen how you take care  of il (the garbage in this area). It  is gross! You're one of the  biggest offenders. This Sunshine  Coast is a big offender with that  dump. It's sitting up on the top  of a hill - talk about pollution!  They talk about the Tetrahedron,  they talk about the creek up here  where some dirt slides in and  turbidity gets into Chapman  Creek, and just around the  corner from them they're  dumping garbage...  "I don't like itl It has to be  recycled and then the residue has  to be destroyed. We can't bury it  anymore."  Liberal  Gordon Wilson  Leader, Liberal Party of BC  Campaign office:  5522 Wharf St.,  Sechelt.  885-2239  THE FOREST SERVICE AND FOREST  MANAGEMENT  "We have some serious  reservations about the creation of  a crown corporation to manage  forestry," Wilson states  emphatically in reference to a  recommendation made by the  Peel Commission.  "We believe that it's likely*kS  he expensive, inefficient, and it's  not going to remove the  confrontation but rather it's  going to create confrontation,  because crown corporations  traditionally are expensive and  traditionally less than sensitive  to community needs.  "We believe that there has to  be an integrated land  management plan for the entire  province, and it has to recognize  fundamental principals: ...there  has to be protection of watersheds; there has to be a  maintenance of old growth forest  in order to maintain and  maximize our ability to  regenerate; ...there has got to be  long term planning in order for  us to identify areas where cutting  is going to occur and to involve  the community in that planning  and assignment process; ...we  recognize that companies need  long term tenures, hut those  long term tenures should be tied  to proper forestry management  practices.  "There has lo be a Forest  Standards Act, or Forest  Practices Act and that has to  look at methods by which forest  companies operate. ...If there is  going lo be clear cutting, it has  to be stipulated ... in their  licencing such thai the size of  the clearcut is identified clearly,  identified and defined with an eye  to nol having huge clearcut  blocks,  "...looking at Ihe advantages  of selective cuts so that we can  look at, not only selective cut  by size but selective cut by  species. So we're not going to be  taking out only one particular  species, leaving the forest that  was balanced by species diversity  with a single species or with  two species instead of three.  "The third part of that is going  to be the question of  reforestation. We have to show  that we have responsible forest  companies managing the lands  responsibly. The tenure would  be tied to the biological cycle of  the species being removed."  WASTE MANAGEMENT  "Our position is that the  government has to put in place  tough legislation that is going  to work toward the elimination  of toxins, not only in our water  but in our atmosphere. In doing  that, we believe the biggest  problem is that there is always a  conflict between job loss and  income loss and the measures  that are needed to clean up  environment.  "So what we're suggesting is  that we would put in place an  environmental protection  assurance fund. That fund would  be paid into by both provincial  and federal governments, as well  as workers and management. The  fund would be used as bridge  financing when a company has  to slow down its production or  temporarily lay off workers in  order to be able to upgrade their  production in order to meet the  standards that are put in  place..That way, if a worker is  displaced because of upgrading of  the facilities, that they will not  lose income.."  Wilson also maintains he has  been working hard for years lo  stop toxic dumping in the  Georgia Strait. There are  currently 26 authorized dump  sites in that area. But he is  optimistic that things will  change, adding thai the issue has  now been raised in Ottawa and in  the provincial Ministry of  Environment.  "As long as government is  sanctioning toxic dumping,  we're not going to get anywhere  in cleaning up ihe problem. So  we'd like the government lo  move very quickly lo eliminate  dumping as an option."  "Landfill is becoming, less  and less, a viable option for  waste disposal. We clearly do  nol want to have long term  waste management run through  landfill propositions. We're  running out of sites...Clearly the  solution of Ihe problem is to reduce waste production.  "Mind you. I'll tell you  incineration is something that is  probably, worse, because with  incineration, often through  combustion of materials, you  release into the atmosphere  toxins that are going to be  equally hazardous. So recycling  is the name of the game... And I  think local governments need to  have the facility to be able to  help local groups, who are  interested in recycling and  developing a local recycling  industry, to get up and running."  NDP  Howard White  New Democratic Party,  Campaign office:  683 Highway 101,  (iibsons.  886-3247  THE FOREST SERVICE AND FOREST  MANAGEMENT  "My own feeling is that the  Forest Service has to be rebuilt,"  White says. "The main thrust  under the Socreds has been to  reduce Ihe Forest Service in  terms of ils size and budget, but  even more radically in terms of  its responsibilities, and make the  forest industry, to a very large  extent, self-policing...  "Some of that is probably  fine, but basically we're left in a  position where we have totally  inadequate control over our  number one industry...We don't  even know how many (trees)  there are out there. There hasn't  been an inventory of the forest  since Barrett had one done in  1974.  "We have this ridiculous  situation where our Forest  Service on the Sunshine Coast  has 1974 maps with all sorts of  corrections through them, and  guestimates about what's here  and what's ihere. This is the kind  of information that has been  used to set the allowable cuts  and to make land use decisions  involving disputed land. So the  information basis is just not  there.  "The Forest Service musl  really be restored and its  responsibilities must be restored.  "I believe lhat our public  forest lands should be kept  public and Ihey should be  monitored and managed by  public servants.  "I don't believe in privatizing  forest... I think there's no way to  guarantee the future of the forest  indusiry but to commit to public  ownership and, public  management."  Asked whether the Forest  Service should be a policing  agency or a managing agency,  While pointed out, "Foresters  have an ethic. They're one of the  protectors of the realm who arc  named along with ministers of  the church and servants of  government in the Magna  Carta...Their job is to maintain  forest lands for the good of all.  "We have a fairly good model  next door in the American Forest  Service which has remained a  very proud, independent service  that really has a lot of respect  and a lot of power. I really think  that's a valuable asset for a  country. We should be moving  in that direction."  WASTE MANAGEMENT  "Greatly improved government  action is needed," says White,  "to help address this problem  which is really reaching crisis  proportion all over the province,  not just here on the Sunshine  Coasl. The lead needs to be  taken by the provincial gov  ernment. Communities can't be  left on their own to flounder and  duplicate planning and trying to  work out solutions on their  own...  "We really haven't even started  on a plan for solid waste  disposal here. It's hard for a  small community with limited  resources to do all the research  and come up wilh Ihe proposals.  "What we're proposing provincially is a solid waste disposal  corporation which would have a  number of package solutions for  communities of different sizes,  which would be state of the art,  well tested, and for which there  would be adequate funding  programs that would allow the  provincial government to share a  major portion of the cost of  bringing in waste management  programs...  "Obviously these programs  would he based on the three R's  of waste management/Reduce,  Recycle, Re-use'.  "The production of waste  through over-packaging and  disposable goods is really where  the solution has to start."  White points out he has a lot  of experience with solid waste,  having managed the Pender  dump for 10 years.  "I feel very strongly that  government intervention is  needed to give producing  companies incentives to make  Iheir packaging more efficient,  making their goods less  disposable. Thai can be built  into the lax system if nothing  else.  "Recycling must require the  participation of the individual,  increased through public  education, but it can't be left  entirely on the shoulders of the  individual...  "Until the government rolls  up its sleeves and really wades  into the problem, and creates  opening to introduce this  material back into the  manufacturing system, much of  it just ends up in the landfill  sites anyway. Government  assistance is very much needed  to develop a marketing agency  for recycled materials. All of this  needs to happen at once..."  "There's some macro-  economic solutions needed," he  concludes, and cites the need for  government investment and  planning for more de-inking  plants in order to provide recycled fibre to the pulp industry.  _____���  , Coast News, October 7,1991  Gibsons  sewer  upgrade  planned  Gibsons council moved one  step closer to clearing up the  sewer problems, that have  contributed to a temporary ban  on building major developments,  at last week's meeting.  Council has accepted a bid by  H.A.Simmons Ltd. to upgrade  the sewage treatment plant. As  soon as finances are put into  place,the first stage of  improvements will commence.  These will improve odour  control and expand capacity "to  some extent" said Mayor Eric  Small. The Town will also be  purchasing an auxiliary generator  which will prevent the dumping  of raw sewage into the harbour,  in the event of a long power-  outage.  Council pushed through a borrowing bylaw to finance the first  stage, having received assurance  from representatives of the  provincial government that the  province will seriously consider  picking up SO percent of the  costs.  In a breakdown of the  anticipated revenue sources to  fund the project, clerk-  administrator Lorraine Goddard  explained, "We expect a grant of  $400,000 (from the provincial  government).We have in the  development cost charge fund,  $190,000."  Further, Mayor Small pointed  out, the Town has budgeted  $250,000 for capital costs this  year, leaving the loan at only  $60,000 more than what was  budgeted.  More will be done next year at  a cost which has not yet been  calculated.  Mayor Small told the meeting  that discussions are continuing  with the Regional District in an  attempt lo find solutions lo  Gibsons' water problems.  SIGD, song in celebration  Fruitless meeting  on spraying  A meeting with IIC Hydro officials and Regional District  directors has produced no agreement on a herbicide  spraying policy for the Sunshine Coast  Hydro officials asked directors to form a committee which  would work with them on vegetation management and meet  once a year to set goals and come to a resolution of issues.  Director Jeremy Frith questioned the usefulness of such a  committee when the district has a firm policy of zero  tolerance for herbicides.  "We have a basic, fundamental difference," he said. "How  can we do this when we have a definite policy dictated by  public wish? The residents of the Sunshine Coast do not  want to have any herbicides used by anyone. It would be  fruitless to sit on a team, it would be impossible to  compromise.  "Now they know we don't want it (spraying). I think they  heard us."  taami  This year, among the  festivities celebrating the fifth  anniversary of self government  for the Sechelt Indian  Government District, to be held  this week, will be the singing of  a very special song.  The ancient song, which was  lost to the Sechelts for a long  time, was returned by David  Gladstone of Bella Bella in a  moving ceremony at the opening  of the House of Hewhiwus  earlier this year.  In an interview with the  Coast News, Del Paul said that  under the guidance of the elders,  practices have been going on for  the October 9 performance.  "It's really exciting for us,"  she said. "It's a real celebrated  event.  "There are different forms of  songs, they can belong to an  individual, a family, a clan or a  community. This particular song  belongs lo the community. It's  to be used, guarded and protected  by every individual in the Band.  "There's so much to be  learned about the cultural  meaning. We were instructed by  the people who returned the song  to use it in celebration,  marriages and any forms of  healing.  "I see this song bringing so  much strength to the people. It's  really important to learn how to  use it properly and not to have  any of the context changed."  She said the practice periods  When this picture was taken five years ago, Ihe Sechelt Indian Band was celebrating its new  achievement of self government. This Wednesday they celebrate the fifth anniversary of that  momentous event. Ray Smith photo  in recent weeks have been an  exciting time for Ihe whole band  as they re-create a part of their  culture which had almost been  forgotten.  "It's such a fragile time as we  try to go back. It's like one of  our elders said, 'So many people  say we've lost our ways. It's not  that we've losl our ways, they've  been put to sleep and we're jusl  now bringing them back to l:fe.  In time we'll get everything  back'."  Del sees the song as an  important tool for this  regeneration. "It's like Margaret,  one of our elders, said," she went  on. "We have to teach our  children to protect this song, and  respect it, and use il always with  good intention, never to fight  over it, and to be proud of it.  "You can see that when the  young people are silting in the  same room wilh the elders. You  can see the leaching taking  place. I can't even describe ihe  pride that kind of exchange  generates."  Del said that long ago there  were very rigid rules on how the  different songs were acquired.  Much of it involved solitary  fasting in the woods, which was  meant   to  discipline  body,  emotions and mind In be  receptive to spiritual inspiration.  Although this custom has died  out, the importance of a song  remains.  This week there will be feasting instead of fasting. Young  people will be participating in  ihe Self Government Run, and  the song will be sung in  celebration at the House of  Hewhiwus, - the House of  Chiefs- to honour, as Del, wife  of Chief Tom Paul, said, "the  many chiefs who worked so hard  and so long to bring self  government to our people."  Problems with timber supplies  by Stuart RumMa  The Ministry of Forests recently released an internal report  criticizing many the methods  used by the Forest Service in estimating the province's timber  supplies over a projected 200  year period.  The report, signed by the  Chief Forester and an Assistant  Deputy Minister of Forests,  states the ministry's staff is un-  Life in the slow lane  FROM THE HIP  J.M. Sherman  ..-  After my surly and summary  Summit with the man-eating  Mack, I spent 16 fun-filled days  lugubriously linked to a phalanx  of life support systems. The  setting was the Intensive Care  Unit of the Kingston (Ontario)  General Hospital, a medical  resort ripped hissing and  bubbling from the bowels of  Dante's Inferno.  Most of my quality time was  devoted to regaining  consciousness, morbidly  monitoring the (BLIP!) on my  Vital Signs screen, and avidly  tracking the (BLEEP!) on a nifty  Nightingale named Nancy.  Nifty Nancy drew my  attention to the essential nature  of an ICU ward after I observed  lhat as soon as I learned a nurse's  name she disappeared.  "T.T.B.O.," she murmured,  casually injecting my left tushie  cheek with a magical shot of  Demerol, the high-shelf pain  candy of preference for people  who are in agony everywhere and  without surcease. "Toe Tag Bum  Out. Even the case-hardened get  crazy rolling expired guests  down to the morgue. So we  rotate and then rotate some  more."  Once safely tucked away in a  private room with a view of  Denise instead of a deceased, I  had opportunity to digest and  regurgitate the recent course of  events. This ultimately came  down to beating myself up  something fierce.  By the third or fourth day, I  had pretty much convinced  myself that the wreck out on old  #7 was entirely of my doing.  Denise dryly noted that she  hadn't flown up from LA,  fibrillating heart in hand, to be  wiUi her near-dead life's  companion only to listen to him  spin theoretical caca about  unconscious suicide in self-retribution for failing to attain  Godhead by his thirty-third  birthday. Always the optimist,  Denny wrote off my rant to the  cutback in my Demerol action.  But the indirect shot in the  arm which went a long way  towards restoring my faith in  myself came in the form of a  pair of Ontario Provincial  policemen named Delaney and  De La Croix who shoe-horned  their burly selves into my room  and my life for purposes of  obtaining a slatemenl from me.  This accomplished, the lads  lingered to chat, and I summoned  coffee and crullers from room  service.  "Sure and you should have bin  a balpeen case, Mister  Sharman."     While soothing,  Delaney's aged-in-Guiness  brogue nonetheless brought a  regiment of hairs on the back of  my neck to full attention.  Nodding soberly in De La  Croix's direction, and receiving a  reflexive affirmation in return,  Delaney added "We don't  normally take statements from  people what have been stairin' in  a 240kph crash."  "Indeed not," De La Croix  muttered as he buttered a third  cruller with an index finger the  size and shape of a pastry  spatula. "We must mostly  balpeen them. This is why she  is carried in our car."  As a kid, I had been fascinated  with a funny little hammer with  a rounded head which my dad had  amongst his tools. It was a  balpeen. I have always assumed  that Maxwell's silver hammer  was also a balpeen. But it was  the long and winding road that  led to this cul de sac of a  hospital bed I was obsessed wilh  - not John Lennon's lyrical  genius.  ���"Uhhh...what's a 'balpeen ,  case'?," 1 ventured hesitantly.  "Well, sor," rumbled Delaney,  "When a driver encounters terror  and the face of Death on the road  such as you did, he or she nine  limes out of ten succumbs to  pure panic and simply freezes  behind the wheel."  "Eh, bien! And so out from  the trunk comes the trusty little  balpeen." Delaney's right hand  rose as De La Croix's voice fell.  "One simply cannot lurn the  body of the deceased over to the  grieving family with a steering  wheel attached to his or her  hands. Nor can what is left of  the vehicle arrive at the auto  wrecker's with...."  Bang! Bang! Delaney's  (imaginary) balpeen hammer  came down upon my bed. "So  you see, sor, we are forced to  break the knuckles on the fingers  of the petrified driver lo  effectuate release."   Delaney and  De La Croix stared at me  intently for a moment wondering, I knew, just how 1 had  managed lo avoid becoming jusl  another balpeen case.  It took a lot longer than eight  weeks confined lo a hospital bed  to figure that one out, but figure  it out I did.  der trained in timber supply  analysis (TSA) and many of the  procedures currently used in  TSA's are outdated and based on  inadequate information.  "This is due, in part, lo giving  (TSA's) a low priority," the report says, "The Forest Service  has not aggressively recruited  and maintained its own expertise."  Following the report, and  serving as a second volume, is a  proposed "aclion plan" designed  to correct problems with TSA  methods and restore the Ministry  of Forests as the leading organization in timber supply analysis.  The action plan echoes the  first volume in identifying the  problems with current TSA  methods.  "...Concern has been expressed  with BC's timber supply policy," it explains.  "Not only is it nol well  articulated and understood, there  is growing debate as to its  continued relevancy."  Current TSA policies have  their roots in European forestry  practices applied to BC in the  1940's, according to the aclion  plan. They were modified  somewhat in 1979 bul are still  falling behind the times.  The changing factors that  make it necessary to rethink  current TSA methods, as outlined by the plan, include:  forests in BC that are no longer  made up of predominantly old  growth timber, communities  wanting more say in timber  management, native land claims  that cover much of BC, and a  greater concern for environmental susiainahilily at the public  level.  The aclion plan calls on the  Forest Service lo develop a qual  ity in TSA work that it now  lacks.  "Given the importance of timber supply decisions, it is essential that the Forest Service develop 'depth' in its timber supply staff and expertise," the action plan states, "...timber supply must be recognized as a career in its own right, with appropriate career opportunities."  To that end, the plan proposes  establishing a "timber supply  unit" at the headquarters level of  the ministry which would coordinate timber supply policy and  provide technical support for  TSA work.  Additional "well trained" staff  would be hired and more effort  would be given to establish consistency and accuracy in timber  supply analysis.  The plan calls for a constant  "review and enhancementfof  TSA techniques) in order to stay  current with continually evolving forest management objectives."  In addition, the action plan  calls for developing greater long  term communication and training for appropriate Forest  Service staff, industry and the  public.  In all there are some 36 listed  tasks and responsibilities that  need lo be accomplished, as the  Forests Ministry sees it, before  timber supply analysis becomes  "relevant." Most of those are  scheduled lo be be implemented  by 1992 if the proposed plan is  accepted.  When Ihe Coast News contacted The Regional Forest  Service office in Powell River  last week for comment, they  were nol yet in possession of a  copy of the the action plan.

Authorized Dealer for  aaCCellular  CARTEL Coast News, October 7,1991  EDITORIAL   OPINION  Nice guy isn't enough  One of the difficulties in Ihis election, in this community, is  not lhat the candidates are unknown to many of us but that they  are so well known. Howard White and Gordon Wilson have been  neighbours for years and active in a lot of community functions.  Harold Long has been around, both in and out of politics for a  good long time, and many people know him personally. It makes  it difficult to answer those telephone demands, "Can we count  on your vote?".  Who wants lo hurt one of the other candidates' feelings.  They're all nice guys.  But maybe being a nice guy isn't enough in the lough world of  government. Harold is undoubtedly a nice guy. Nevertheless, in  the last five years, in spite of working hard to pul forth the  issues of this community, he often appears lo have been impotent  in affecting changes.  In spile of his position on the B.C.Ferry Corporation, we had  our 10:30 ferry removed and it wasn't reinstated until local  governments spent two years travelling to Victoria, not Powell  River.  It was kind of sad when he tried lo claim victory in having an  evaluation team visit St. Mary's Hospital and the evaluators  promptly explained he had nothing lo do with this regularly  scheduled visit.  And when the big league media across Ihe country was making  snide remarks aboul almost every elected Socred having held a  portfolio, we maintained polite silence. Harold was one of five  Socreds who never got lhat recognition from his parly. The  rumour is thai one of the uuchosen died during his term, one had  been a Bill Vander Zalm deserter who was never forgiven, and  there were rumours alniut the rest. But nol Harold.  Harold has been a clean-living, hard working MLA who  supported Vander Zalm to the bitter end and then promptly  supported Rita. He never publicly disagrees with any party  policy or the behaviour of any other party member. Why then has  he been treated so shabbily by his own party?  Perhaps Harold just doesn't know how to play the game. For  example, his position on waste management. (Don't miss reading  it on page two.) The statement was given with full awareness  that it would be completely reported during the election  campaign. And his informed decision was lo announce to Ihe  Sunshine Coast that he believes this would he an ideal location  to bring all the garbage from the Lower Mainland and  Vancouver.  Even while he was saying it, the interviewer kept shaking her  head and asking,"You mean here, Harold?". A more savvy  politician might have guessed by the incredulous look on Ihe  reporter's face that this might not be Ihe best election ploy but  he just didn't seem to think people in this constituency would  object to the idea if it was reported accurately. So il has been -  word for word.  It is perhaps this lack of political perceptiveness that has kept  the Socred leaders from pushing Harold into (he spotlight.  Whatever the reason, it's been pretty well documented that  voting for Harold doesn't give us an "in" with the Socred brass.  Apathy passe in B.C.  The political apathy which has long been attributed to the  "typical Canadian" appears to be passe this election. When the  CBC arrogantly decided that this province has only two  political parlies, the phone calls and faxes flooded CBC's  executive offices as the voting public of BC demanded that  Gordon Wilson be invited to participate in Ihe Leaders' Debate.  Perhaps the polls indicate that the Liberal party has only  about 10 percent of the vote nailed down hut the people are still  interested in what Wilson has lo say. Those polls may have been  premature in counting up committed votes. Surely the people of  BC will want to hear what Ihe leaders have lo say before they  make such an important decision.  Whatever the individual's personal leanings, it appears people  refused to allow the media to decide the politics of this province  and for that we all deserve to lake a bow.  The media is a powerful tool, especially during an election.  But in the final crunch, they only have as much power as we  allow Ihem.  LETTERS  Thanks for  the support  Editor:  On behalf of the Terry Fox  Run committee, I would like lo  extend my appreciation to the  Sechelt community for once  again supporting the eleventh  annual Terry Fox Run.  On Sunday, Sept. IS, 89  people participated by walking,  jogging, running and biking the  10 km's from Sechelt  Elementary to Porpoise Bay  Provincial Park and back, raising  $857 for cancer research.  I would like to thank Brian  and Heather Myhill Jones, Bob  Dall, Robin St. Jean and Melte  Hoegh for assisting with the  run.  For the ninth year, Shop Easy  and Sechelt Supermarket kindly  donated refreshments for the  participants, which was very  much appreciated by all.  Michael Metcalfe  Run Organizer'  EXPLANATION  Editor:  The unusual roaring sound  that shook Gower Point and  Roberls Creek last Thursday  evening was most inconsistent  with the published explanation  in your paper. The steady heavy-  volume sound might have been  made by a flight of several  thousand World War II bomber  propeller planes.  I have not heard of a carrier  launching many planes  simultaneously. The intensity  was great enough to vibrate the  steel railing on our concrete  patio. Most uniquely, the roar  was abruptly switched on and  off.  It would lx* very interesting lo  compare notes wilh Nanaimo  residents about the alleged U.S.  navel carrier.  E. H. Burritt  Knaus needs  new outlook  Editor:  The Sept.30 issue of the  Coast News reported the  demands made by a Sechelt  resident on the school board with  respect to justifying the  existence of a program in the  school district. Mr. Knaus  apparently uses the criteria of  university attendance and gaining  employment as measures of the  success of this program.

Bill met me at the airport  and there followed a mandatory  night of talking. I suppose I was  still running on Maritime time,  for I was up and fully dressed at  half-past five that first  morning. In that hour before the  dawn Ihere was a full moon  shining on English Bay, ghostly  freighters lay at anchor and,  folks, I 'm here to tell you that  Vancouver, British Columbia,  vaulted effortlessly again lo the  top of the Astonishing Canadian  Beauty Sweepstakes.  lt was an hour or so before  my friend was to get up to go to  work. I pondered my return and  the Canada I had seen. What had  I learned? How was I changed?  The man whose hospitality I  was enjoying has done as much  as liny in the cause of  bilingualism in Canada. He was  the principal of the first French  Immersion School in the  country, in Montreal, in the  early 1970's. He came out to  B.C. in the late 197()'s to lie the  principal of the first French  Immersion school in this  province. Some years ago he gave  up on French Immersion, gave  up on being a principal and  returned voluntarily to his first  love - the classroom.  We have debated, he and I, die  role of Quebec in this country  and I realized during my  contemplation of ihe moonlit  miracle of English Bay thai I  had moved much closer to his  position than had been Ihe case  before I left.  "They will never be satisfied.  Lei them go," is more or less a  terse summation of the views of  this quite distinguished  educator. Valiantly had I tried  lo uphold the argument for one  A time for  straight talk  MUSINGS  John Burnside  great country, bilingual from  sea to shining sea.  It was with a real sense of  loss lhat I realized I did not  want to do that any more.  I thought of the quote from  the Mordecai Richler article  which appeared in the New  Yorker magazine recently, a  quote I had read in the Saint  John, N.B., paper tlie day I flew  back to B.C.  "When a hundred and fifty  thousand people take to the  streets chanting "Quebec aux  Quebecois," said Richler, "you  don't have to tell the Jews that  they arc not talking about four  generations of Montreal  Goldberg's, or MacGregor's, for  lhat matter."  I, myself, in my article  written for the ('oast News in  July, said cautiously, "The  history of the 20th Century  leaches us thai racism is often a  by-product of virulent  nationalism." Mordecai Richler,  a native Montrealer, said it  more clearly.  Certainly, the Indians on the  Kahnewake Reserve or at James  Bay are persuaded that there is a  racist thread to Quebec  separatism. The Jamaicans in  Montreal, too, are sure of it.  And perhaps we would do well  in Ihe rest of Canada to gravely  contemplate this aspect of our  national malaise, realizing lhat  a problem cannot be solved  until it is first identified.  I thought of the brave young  woman who sat beside me on the  plane. She was returning to her  home province after a sojourn in  Quebec. She was reading a  French novel with ease and  comfort, having studied at Laval  University in Quebec City.  She told me her mother was  Acadian and I told her I had  found the Acadians in the  Maritimes delightful, warm  and npenhearted, and seemingly  happy.  We contrasted their  experience with thai of the  Quebecois.  The last place Fran and I  camped in Nova Scotia was Ihe  site of the poem "Evangeline",  the story of the expulsion of the  Acadians. They really were  savagely treated.  Just north of Wolfville,  N.S., there are 5,000 acres of Ihe  most fertile land in Nova  Scotia. This land had been  reclaimed from the sea by the  Acadians three hundred years  before, lived on and farmed for  one hundred and fifty years  before the expulsion. With the  Acadians dispersed along the  eastern seaboard of America  down as far as New Orleans, the  fertile lands were happily  snapped up by United Empire  Loyalists whose enthusiasm for  the Crown was certainly no  Perhaps Barry Sullivan used  these same criteria in his review  of the school system in B.C.  which resulted in the Year 2000  document that is making  sweeping changes in education  in Ihis province. The orientation  of public schools to the job  market and university entrance  has resulted in the worrisome  unemployment figures reported  daily in the media, and it has a  mere 3-5% of the school  population completing a  university program  I wish Mr. Knaus would  broaden his focus to include  caring aboul all students and  how the school system can be  supported to meet all students'  needs.  The cancellation of one  program, virtually fully funded  by federal grant money, will not,  unfortunately, solve the  problems of employment and  university attendance that Mr.  Knaus feels determines the  success of educational programs.  It is worth noting that French  immersion has only a little over  20 years of existence in B.C.,  with very few students in the  program for the first 5-10 years.  The numbers and time line just  do not give a base for conducting  meaningful studies of ihe type  Mr. Knaus has expressed an  interest in.  Mary Findlay  Serious error in  clinic report  Editor:  A notice of the Annual  General Meeting of the Pender  Harbour & District Health  Centre Society has been sent to  the members of the Society,  presumably by the board of  Trustees, although that was not  indicated.  It appears that a very serious  error is contained in the "Report  of the Building Program"  wherein it states that when the  original building was constructed  no allowances were made for the  possibility of expansion.  I was president of the Society  from ils inception until well  after the construction of the  clinic - such is not the case.  The plans were carefully drawn  up by our architect, Fred  Thornton Hollingsworth, in  conjunction with government  architects. These plans not only  provided for accommodation for  two doctors and a dentist,  together with rooms for all  supporting facilities, but also  provided for expansion as the  need arose.  Mr. Hollingsworth watched  the construction of the clinic  with great care and saw to it that  it was constructed in accordance  with the plans. The plan for the  building, together with the plan  for expansion, was Filed in the  Medical Centre.  greater than their enthusiasm  for the fertile Acadian lands.  And yet the Acadiians we  met were of good cheer,  hospitable and warm with none  of the whining surliness that  has come to plague Quebec.  I thought of my own people  in Scotland, driven from their  homes, often in the dead of  winter, in both the 18th and  19th Centuries, to make way for  sheep and, here again, I realized  that by comparison the  Quebecois had not fared ill since  the Conquest.  I thought of the teenage  vigilantes roaming some parts  of Quebec reporting shopkeepers  to the government sign  inspectors. Not to see this as a  developing form of fascism is to  be less than truthful to oneself.  Tlte young woman who was  returning to B.C. admitted that,  sometimes, though she was  fluently bilingual, she was  frightened in the streets of  Montreal during national feast  days. She spoke of Canadian  flags being trampled underfoot  and of Anglo-Canadians  speaking softly to keep from  drawing attention to  themselves.  It's time for straight talk,  but where is the political  leadership? With my friend  Hay, I say now, "Let them go.  Let them take with them what  they brought inlo  Confederation. The north was  given to them by Canada in the  192()'s and should remain  Canadian"  "Does that mean we'd lose  James Bay?" asked an elderly  Quebecois in New Brunswick,  with whom I was discussing the  country.  "Certainly it does," I assured  him.  "That would be war," he  asserted, fiercely.  "You'd lose," I told him. I  refrained from adding, "Again."  With the passage of time the  Board of Trustees apparently  decided not to use these plans  but, instead, had new plans  drawn by a different architect.lt  is possible that this action may  have had some bearing on the  difficulties encountered in the  new construction.

Ancient Sechelt  bowl studied by  archaeologists  by Ratal  An ancient stone bowl found  by archaeologists during pipeline  excavations in Sechelt last year  has provided new information  about the native people who  lived on this coast between  1,930 and 2,290 years ago.  Linda Joe, curator of the  Tem-swiya Museum at the  House of Hewhiwus told the  Coast News that archaeologists  have completed studies of  artifacts found at five sites in  " Sechell.  The most notable find was a  zoomorphlc stone bowl which is  characteristic of the Marpole  culture (named after a huge  midden in the Marpole area  whicli has been the subject of  extensive study).  Although several similar  stone bowls are in existence, the  Sechelt bowl is the first one on  which any dating has been  attempted. Carbon 14 testing of  shells found in the same strata  indicate the bowl was used  probably for around 200 years  about 2000 years ago.  This is the first time evidence  of the Marpole culture has been  found in this area. Although the  majority of coastal middens are  found near the shore, the Sechelt  sites are about two kilometres  inland and 75 metres above sea  level, suggesting they may have  been used as refuges or for  ceremonial purposes.  The bowl is broken, probably  for llie first lime during its earlv  history, and later during  construction for Ihe hydro right  of way. But enough remains of  the original shape lo suggest the  head, wings and tail of a bird.  Wilson Duff, a historian  who, during the '50s and '60s,  made an extensive sudy of BC's  stone images, illustrates in his  book 'Images Stone: BC two  bowls which are similar to the  Sechelt find. He theorizes they  may have been tobacco mortars,  but the archaeologists believe  this newest find was used in  shamanic ceremonies.  Duff also believed the stone  carving of the Marpole culture  was the forerunner of the more  familiar wooden carving of later  cultures.  Curator Joe told the Coast  News the ancient bowl will be  presented to the museum. "We  hope to have a ceremony where  it will be received by one of our  elders," she said, "ll is right thai  ���  PRONTO'S  steak  spaghetti  Fine Dining Restaurants  886-8138 S��heii  885-1919  *h9m   ^*W:r     ���<"' ���   *>�����. l mtaMj  these things come back here  where they belong."  Joe has also put wheels in  motion lo have the 'Sechelt  Image' relumed. The 70 pound,  20 inch stone carving was found  in Sechelt in 1921 and is now in  the Centennial Museum in  Vancouver. Il is believed to be  one of the strength testing  stones which were used in marriage festivities in Kwakiutl and  Salish villages.  Another piece of the Sechelt's  history which will soon find a  home in the museum is the bell  of St. Mary's church which was  rescued by the the Sechelt  Volunteer Fire Department when  the church burned in 1970.  "It was broken during the  fire," said Joe. "ll has been in  the firehall since the fire, but I  have been talking lo Bill Higgs  (the fire chief) and we're going to  have il moved here  "It belongs here too."

Cycling  the other  Coast  IHORSESHOE BAY NEWS  those    in  by_��_rgtCo-P��,SM-_S2_  "The people were so open, so  very friendly," said Lauri  Olenius of Gibsons when he  recounted his cycling holiday in  Newfoundland this past summer.  "That more than made up for the  discomfort of tenting in the  frequent rains."  On his trip around Iceland last  year Lauri found the people there  reserved, even glum - an extreme  contrast to the cheerful outgoing  Newfoundlanders.  In his month of cycling on the  Avalon Peninsula and the eastern  arm of Bonavista Bay, Lauri  covered 1200 km of country  roads, both gravel and blacktop.  "I found travelling the trans-  Canada there a bore," said Lauri,  "so I changed my original plan,  which included a ferry run to St.  Anthony on the Northern  Peninsula, to tour closer to St.  John's on roads that took me  through the villages in the coves  along the coast."  "Cycling downhill to a cove  and then grinding up the other  side side was always a strenuous  work-out."  Lauri noted that the hills in  Iceland were higher, but not so  numerous,    as  Newfoundland.  "Always a hill to climb. Often  you youngsters would  accompany me on their '.ikes up  the hill from their village just to  see me on my way."  Lauri said he saw very few cycling tourists, "Not like the  dozens I saw in Iceland."  One cyclist, a 39-year old  Ontario man he met, just  completing a cross-Canada tour  that began in Uclulei, replied to  Lauri's question: "The hardest  part of my trip? Il's just these  last two days getting finished  with it."  "After two months and more  of pedalling, I guess the end of it  was the most important," said  Lauri, "He had averaged 170 km  a day, but at my age of 71, I  found my average of 47 km a  day was enough in Ihe rainy  weather. Besides, that gave me  time to get to know the people  and the countryside."  Really, it's more correct to say  the people of Newfoundland get  to know the traveller. Lauri was  often invited in to share the  host's rum  or have a  beer.  Lauri looked for Bed-and-  Breakfasls occasionally lo escape  the weather and, at one place one  morning, found great excitement  among the guests who had just  read the name Yousaf Karsh in  the guest book. Karsh, the  portrait photographer famous for  his 1941 photo of Winston  Churchill, was already gone,  apparently disappointed with the  small size of the icebergs  floating by.  "In Bonavista I kept humming  the song... to Vancouver  Island..., and visited the century-  old heritage lighthouse."  There are some intriguing  names of places - Witless Cove,  Come by Chance, Salvage,  Heart's Content - that he paTssd.  "Where to next, Lauri?"  "Finland, perhaps.

In Columbus' day,  magnets were associated with  magic, supposedly possessing  supernatural powers which were  curiously lost in the  'overwhelming' presence of garlic  and onions. Thus, sailors aboard  ship would have nothing to do  with these edible bulbs for fear  their breath would demagnetize  compass needles. Now you know  why compasses on ships are kept  in a 'house of their own'!

"MIKE HARCOURT AND  PROMISES THEY DOf T  INTEND TO KEEP."  "Mike Harcourt and the NDP are simply missing  the point of this election campaign. They continue  to wave their "promise them anything" program  and then try to obscure our government's very  successful record by attacking some  personalities from the past.  They hope to disguise the real NDP agenda that  will spend you into higher taxes.  I won't let them get away with that.

GIBSONS NOTES  The Town of Gibsons will be saying, "yes please," to an offer  by Foresty Canada to supply trees for planting on municipal  lands. The initiative is part of the Green Plan that was unveiled  by the federal government in December, 1990.  Council received a letter at the Sept. 24 meeting, which  outlined Tree Plan Canada' under which the government hopes to  plant several million trees across Canada in the next five years.  Planner Rob Buchan told council that details are not yet  available, but aldermen decided to push ahead with their  acceptance in case the offer is 'first come, first served'.  GIBSONS C0MMUH1IY HAM  The first draft of the revised Gibsons Community Plan is being  typed and will be in committee members' hands this week,  Buchan told the meeting. Once the committee has reviewed it and  the necessary revisions made, the plan will be presented to  council, which should be in the near future he said.

Just barely visible from the  Coast that night was the S.S.  Nimitz, a U.S. aircraft carrier  and one of the world's largest  war ships, powered by two  nuclear reactors. Maximum  capacity is 100 aircraft, each  capable of carrying five different  types of nuclear bombs, the  most available being the B-28  which packs a wallop equal to  1.5 million tons of TNT - not to  mention the radiation. The S.S.  Nimitz' home base is in Puget  Sound.  Stories about what really happened varied from each of the  bases at Nanoose, Comox and  Esquimalt. But the story  generally adhered to is that the  aircraft aboard the S.S.Nimitz  were "testing their engines".  A few military officers seemed  as shocked as the public. All  bases reported positively no  aircraft in flight. (The Peace  Committee requests that anyone  who saw fighter planes taking  off the S.S. Nimitz call 885-  7143.)  The fact that nuclear powered  war ships are cruising the  Georgia Straits has been a  controversial issue for some  time now. Certainly this event  gives us all reason to re-examine  our complacency. The public  should at least be forewarned of  any manoeuvres or awesome  "roars" shattering the serenity of  the peaceful, picturesque Coast  sunset.  UMARY MOTES  Come take a look at the many  IGOLDEN LIFELINES]  kyJ-ycaltty  Every once in a while, crooks  ply their trade on the Sunshine  Coast. Some might not use the  word "crooks", but I do. What  follows is the scenario.  A salesperson went to a  residence and knocked on the  door. A lady answered the door,  and it would have been easy for  the salesperson to see that she  was almost blind. He had a nice,  friendly manner, and charmed the  lady of the house. She invited  the salesperson in - how could  she not invite this nice person  in?  These people are very clever.  In due course, he made the pitch  and our blind friend accepted the  deal. (Because she is blind, she  asked the salesperson to make  out the cheque for payment.)  When her bank stalement  came in, the daughter was  balancing her mother's cheque  book and questioned her mother  about the cheque for $145. The  mother was very upset and told  the daughter the cheque was only  supposed to be $45.  The family immediately got in  touch with the company the  salesperson represented and the  $100 was returned. They were  lucky. The salesperson was  selling meat packages. The  company seems on the up and  up; it was the salesperson who  was the crook.  Everyone gets scammed once  in a while and for that reason I  don't let anyone who appears lo  be a salesperson into my home.  On this occasion, the  salesperson was a man, but there  are women out there who are  crooks, too.  H0TITKT  Beryl Butler called me and  asked me to list the Whist and  Cribbage times.

Three weeks ago there was  nothing left of her but a mess of  feathers, though her baby chicks  had all managed to survive the  ordeal of having their mum  taken away from them by some  unknown creature.  Last weekend, we received a  phone call from a neighbour  who lives a fair distance away.  She had seen a little brown hen  hanging around her deck, eating  seed which dropped from her bird  feeder.  "It's a small brown hen with  no tail feathers, and it doesn't  seem to be able to fly," she  reported.  Could it be that Mrs. Banty  was actually still alive?  We quickly grabbed a fish net  in which we hoped to catch her,  should it be her. We went  quietly alon'g to the area in the  bush where we reckoned she  might be and, sure enough, she  answered when we called. It was,  indeed, our Mis. Banty.

She would only get so far  and then she was gone. We  finally had lo abandon that  project, deciding that we would  try again the next day.  First thing on Sunday  morning we went back and  located her, but after trying for  more than an hour, we had to  once again give up.  Then we had an idea. Why not  try using the baby chicks as  bait! We caught two of the little  ones, put them in a cage and  took them along to the area  where Mrs. Banty was hanging  out. My husband and I hid at  both ends of the area and waited  quietly. The baby chicks were  really scared and started to  squawk in despair. That did it.  Mrs. Banty's strong maternal  instinct came to the fore. Even  though she knew we were there,  she took the risk of going to the  cage, clucking to the wee ones.  That was the moment we had  waited for. Down came the fish  nel. She was trapped.  All the way home she  squawked and kicked up a row,  while at the same time the little  ones screamed frantically.  Finally, we put her in the  fenced-in run along with the  chicks. But she was much more  interested in eating and drinking  lhan she was in anything else.  She must have been dehydrated,  because she drank water for a full  fifteen minutes and ate for about  half an hour, non-stop.  After a three week separation,  the little ones are now almost as  big as she, particularly now that  she has lost so many feathers.  She now looks so tiny but,  feisty little thing that she is, in  a few weeks she will be back to  her old self again.  We are really happy that she is  home and consider it a miracle  she survived for so long,  considering the many predators  in the area.  Il's always nice to have a  happy ending to such a story.

Coast News, October 7,1991  IEGM0NT NEWS  IHARBOUR WATCH  bf aUttacy  Gee, I sure had some  Egmonsters in a flap over that  column I wrote about the Thrift  Store a few weeks ago, and no  wonder! After I read it, I was  too. Unfortunately, due to an  error, a portion of that column  never made it into print. As a  result, some people took it the  wrong way and considered it, at  best, an ambiguous, uncalled for  personal attack. I apologise for  the mistake and, to clear up any  misunderstanding, I'd like to say  'thank you', on behalf of  Egmont, to Doris Jackson for all  the years of Wednesdays that she  donated to the Thrift Store, and  also for volunteering to open it  on Tuesdays in future.  EGMONT TEA  At long last, there is going to  be another Egmont Tea.  According to my memory, ihere  hasn't been one since last fall, so  it's long past due. It will be a  great opportunity to catch up  with who's in town these days  and say hello, as well as enjoy  the always delicious spread of  food. So mark this on your  calendar: Pizza Tea, Egmont  Hall, Friday, Oct.II, 1-3 pm;  and find a pizza recipe to make  or take along.

MUM���  As you all know by now, the  search is on for a new Egmont  News person. Living across the  moat, as it were, has made it  somewhat difficult for me to  keep up with all the (printable)  goings on and so I thought  someone with a closer link to  mainstream Egmont, as well as  a telephone, inight serve this  column a little more diligently.  In the meantime, thanks for all  the good feedback in the past,  and good luck to the next town  scribe. Now I can look forward  to Ihe Egmont news every week  loo.

On a totally different topic,  but nonetheless exciting, the  other night as I was sitting up in  the silence of these autumn  doldrums, I heard the distinct  calls of what I believe to he a  spotted owl, right over my head!

I  LETTERS  Sargeants Bay  changes slammed  Editor:  I would like to correct some  errors in your article about  Sargeants Bay "Lake".  The natural bird habitat has  been evolving there for perhaps  hundreds, if not thousands, of  years. Creating the lake has  actually wiped out an enormous  amount of natural feed, topmost  being a very nutritious grain that  only grows in inter-tidal  marshes.  There was never a lake there in  the seventies. When there was  one, it was closer to where the  "uninhabitable" cabin was that  my family used for 30 years and  that I lived in for almost 15  years, up lo when it was torn  down. As happens to this type  of unique and diverse ecosystem  over centuries, it gradually filled  up and when my father dredged  the topsoil off he unwittingly  enhanced the spawning grounds  by creating new channels.  As for the fish, those  spawning grounds for coho,  chum and cutthroat are no longer  there, having been just where the  "lake" is. They need clean,  constantly washed gravel to  excavate their redds (nests). All  they have now is still water  which will silt up.  The stream from the marsh to  Redrooffs Rd. contains mainly  sand and silt, with very little  gravel. The salmon coming in  now only know to go a certain  distance, and now that is all  gone.  As for stocking chinook there,  they need even more specific  conditions to spawn, and these  conditions do not exist there. If  they did, the Chinook would  already be there.  We sold that land to the  people of this province as a  natural diverse ecosystem and  now all they have is a mini Lost  Lagoon - no longer an intettidal  salt marsh.

RCMP Ladies  Fishing Derby Committee  Situation needs  control  Editor:  I am very concerned at the  continuing increase in heavy  industrial traffic on Redrooffs.  We have, for some time, been  promised a bypass to allow  heavy construction traffic from  Highway 101 to access the new  developments north of  Redrooffs, but this has never  been built.  Surely the construction  companies could build their own  short access roads, using a  fraction of their immense  profits.  Redrooffs is a winding, hilly,  country lane never designed for  heavy industrial traffic such as  gravel trucks, logging trucks,  tractor trailers, etc. The road and  shoulders are suffering rapid  deterioration from this type of  traffic.  More serious is the noise and  air pollution and the danger to  residents. Many of these  monstrous vehicles travel well  over the speed limit, especially  when returning empty.  My greatest worry, however,  is the safety of our children.  Visibility is very limited on  Redrooffs because of hills and  corners. We, ourselves, have two  visually impaired children and  there are several adults and children on Redroofs who are  visually or hearing impaired or  are not very mobile.  0 b n x f v �� f  Dinner   S pecia I  SECHELT LEGION BR.  140  Sat Oct 12th Dinner 7:30pm  6 pm-Mldnight ��� $7.00 per person  LIVE BAND* ��� -"EDELWEISS"  Members   &   Guests   Welcome  to  8  O   B  0   &   <B.  __&  CANADA  SAVINGS BONDS  A Wonderful Place  For Your Savings To Grow.  You've worked hard to set aside your  savings. Now it's time to look for a  great place to invest those savings.  Canada Savings Bonds. This year,  you can buy your bonds at face  value wherever you bank or invest  from October 17 to November 1.  You may date your payment November 1,  the day the new bonds start earning interest.  Safe and Secure. Canada Savings Bonds are fully guaranteed  by the Government of Canada. They're a safe, secure  investment that never falls in value.  Cashable Anytime. Canada Savings Bonds can be cashed at  any time, so your money is never locked in.  Guaranteed Interest Rate. Canada Savings Bonds offer an  attractive interest rate that's guaranteed for a full year. This  year's interest rate and purchase limit will be announced in  mid-October. Details will be available wherever Canada  Savings Bonds are sold.  Don't Be Late! Remember, November 1 is  the last day you can buy the new bonds  at face value. But the bonds may be  withdrawn from sale at any time.  i  Canada  fl  fl  s  _s  Speeding traffic is a great  danger lo school or regular bus  passengers because of this  limited visibility. From our  home, we have only about 100  metres visibility in either  direction because of hills and  corners. Children boarding the  school bus take their lives in  their hands, since a fully loaded  gravel or cement truck or  logging truck can't stop within  100 metres even when travelling  the speed limit.  Neither the Regional District  nor the Province seem willing or  able to do anything about the  worsening situation.  By provincial guidelines, we  have less than half the number  of police officers for our  population, one third if distances  and sea patrol duties are taken  into account.  The Regional District seems  unwilling or scared to control  developers or to take action to  alleviate this problem by forcing  the developers to use Hwy 101  and build their own short access  roads to their developments.  Nor does there seem to be any  intention of building the  Redrooffs bypass as shown in  the plans for the Sargeant Bay  Park, whose opening next year  to campers will make an already  dangerous situation worse.  Let's not wait for a tragedy  before doing something to  control the situation on  Redrooffs.  F.

George Ferraro, l.ache Cercel, and Harry Aoky dazzling audiences with a variety of Romanian folk tunes and similarly influenced music.   Pholo: Lionel Trudel  Ethnic flare adds spice  To mark the beginning of Ihe  eighth annual Countryside  Concerts, promoters decided to  deviate from the usual 'classical'  format and treat patrons lo some  ethnic flare. The Cercel  Ensemble performed Sunday  Sept. 29th to a packed Twilight  Theater.  Three Members make up the  Violin, Accordion and Bass Trio.  Lache Cercel, the Violinist, was  trained in Romania and  performed there successfully  until 1988, when he moved to  Victoria. George Ferraro, also  Romanian, accompanied wilh  Ihe Accordion. Mr. Ferraro  played extensively with Maestro  Cercel in Romania, and has  recently arrived in Canada to join  his colleague. The bass was  played by Harry Aoky.  Theperformance's repertoire  was quite diverse. From Ihe  distinct Romanian provincial  music to St. Louis Jazz version  of Sweet Georgia Brown lo  Flight of The Bumble Bee. The  taller two tunes retained their  original compositional flavor,  but were politely influenced with  a Slavic Flare. The group  amazed the audience with their  fast, tight Jazz-like rendition of  familiar melodies, sparkling  with the performers'  interpretations.  Future audiences have the  Lafayette String Quartet with  Bruce Vogt lo look forward lo.  The quartet has been lauded  for its elegance, power, richness  and refinement, surprising in a  quartet of such youthful players.  Their programme will include  Beethoven Op. 18 #1, Britten  Op. 94 and the Brahms Piano  Quintet Op. 34. for the quintet  they will be joined by celebrated  Victoria-based pianist, Bruce  Vogt, who is well-known to  coast piano audiences.  Hailing from the Chicago  area, they will be  complementing ears of the  Sunshine Coast Sunday, Oct.  20.

Beach House Productions  presents the two-night run of the  play, written by veteran  Vancouver playwright John Gray  in collaboration with Eric  Peterson.

Billy Bishop Goes to War, the  musical play, premiered in 1978  at the Vancouver East Cultural  Cenlre and since then has been  seen across Canada, the United  States, England and Scotland.  The two performers are no  strangers to Bishop or the show.  Bryden reprises his role of  Bishop after a very successful  run at the Richmond Gateway  Theatre, and Douglas was part of  the original touring company  and has travelled abroad with the  show.

On the Arts Beat  On Wednesday, Oct.9, at 8 pm  at the Arts Centre, Sechelt, the  Fall Film Series presents The  Conformist. This story is  about a man, Marcello, who is  under the mistaken impression  he killed a homosexual  chauffeur. He tries to conform as  closely as possible to the norms  of society so no one will notice  him. Directed by Bernardo  Bertolucci, this 1959  (Italy/France/West Germany)  film portrays the struggle of the  individual - often to the death -  with political and societal forces.  Friday, Oct.ll, at 7:30 pm in  the Arts Centre, there will be an  evening of mostly classical  music by COAST CONSORT,  and some poetry .readings by Jan  DeBruyn. Admission is $5, and  proceeds from this event will  benefit the SPCA of the  Sunshine Coast.  Saturday, Oct. 12 at 8 pm at  St. John's United Church in  Davis Bay, Sunshine Coast  residents will have the have a  rare opportunity to hear the  phenomenal piano music of  Lubomyr Melnyk.  Born in Munich, Mr. Melnyk,  who has lived in Canada and  presently lives in Sweden, has  composed over 90 works ranging  from solo and multi-piano pieces  to full orchestral scores. A  brilliant and extraordinary  pianist, Melnyk's virtuosity is  beyond description. With his  remarkable Continuous  Technique, he creates a  symphony of sound, a  melodious music of airy fluidity  mat swells out of the piano.  Sponsored by the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council, tickets are  $10. Available al the Arts  Centre and Talewind Books,  Sechelt; Peninsula Market,  Davis Bay; Roberts Creek  General Store; Say ward Books  and Coast Books, Gibsons.  Working up the bids, auctioneer David  of work donated by local artists during  Gillies helped bring in over $5000 from the sale  the Arts Centre's 25th Anniversary Art Auction.  Carl Chaplin's paintings are  done in a meticulous and  dramatic representational style  which is an insistent and  seductive vehicle for his  message. He has a self-imposed  mission to show us the beauty  of the environment, the almost  unprecedented threat to that  beauty that humanity has  created, and the dark side of  human nature that leads to the  rapaciousness of war, exploitation and environmental  degradation.  WEST COAST DREAM1N'  is not a laid-back, easy-lookin'  kind of show. There are some  images of simple beauty and  delight, bul more typical of  pieces in the show is the  painting "First Light", in which  immense power, seeming  invulnerability and proud  defiance of nature is belied by  the ramparts reaching for the sky  in the desperate gesture of a  drowning person.  This show can be seen during  Arts Centre regular hours (11-4  Wednesday to Saturday, 1-4  bsons. Sunday) until Saturday, Oct.26.  ________���  umm Cry  THEATRE  presents  1  TERMINATOR 2  With Arnold Sohwartmnnggnr  Restricted, Frequent Violence, Some Very Coarse language  /  Bi^*  SHOWTIMES: 8:00PM   /  Sun.

"Well, that's a very interesting  line of thought, ma'am."  She's a middle aged non-  Native woman and she's telling  me she "has nothing against  Native people", but she's tired of  native people "whining" about  the residential school system.  "I mean," she says, "my  parents sent me to a boarding  school and I was lonely, but you  don't hear me crying about it.  What's the difference?"  Night and day, ma'am, night  and day.  It's bizarre to hear someone  compare a private boarding  school to the Native residential  schools. But you can't really  blame her, I suppose, as  shameful as that comparison is.  The reality thai few non-  Native people truly know about  the Native residential schools  and ihe effect those schools had  on Native people is a fact Native  people have had to deal with.  This lack of understanding has  led to many of today's misconceptions about Native  people.  I asked a few former residents  of the residential school about  life there. Yes, ma'am, they  were lonely. But that is about as  far as the comparison can go.  Education, they feel, was only a  small part of the agenda the  residential school had.  "I don't know if they were set  up to destioy the Native family,"  said one former resident, "but  they sure did a good job of it."  "The schools seemed to be designed lo make you forget your  family and push you into  another culture," she added, with  a thoughtful look. "From when  I was a little kid to when I was a  teenager I was only allowed to  go home a few weeks between  the end of June and August. 1  never went home even for  Christmas."  Puzzled, questioning, she adds,  "What else could they have  thought would happen except a  breakdown of the family?"  It is a very good question and  one that even today is not fully  answered.  Tliere are those who feel Ihere  is no doubt the residential school  concept was designed specifically  to destroy the family. They feel  the Canadian Government made  a conscious decision to "re-  program" Native children.  When you analyze the  residential school, there is a  great deal of support for the  Cultural Genocide view. If you  think of one of the extreme  policies - no Native languages to  be spoken at any time, by threat  of severe punishment - one has  to wonder what the reasoning  was.  Taking this farther, could the  policy maker who developed this  universal rule not have known  what taking the language from  the children would do to a  culture based on oral tradition? It  meant, for one thing, that a  grandparent could no longer  share the legends, where the  teachings are, with the  grandchild.  I suppose il could have all be  a mix-up, a mistake. Whoops.  There were good times at the  schools, too, I'm told. Those  moments when you could sneak  away and laugh with a friend  were good. And now you can  look back and laugh at a time  when you made a mistake, even  though it had to be paid for.  "Picture this," the former  resident says, "We were cleaning  the Nun's dining room after  lunch and I couldn't resist to take  a bite of that big apple that was  there. My friend was across the  room and she put her broom on  her shoulder and yelled to me to  pitch it to her." She laughs at  the memory.  "I was just letting it go when  a Nun walked in behind my  friend. She startled us and my  friend missed the apple and it hit  the Nun on the side of the head,"  she says, laughing full out. We  are all laughing as she tells this  After a moment she stops  laughing and tells a not-so-funny  story about the punishment she  received for this "deliberate  attack on a Nun" as they put it  when they punished her.  To compare the Native  residential school system to a  private non-Native boarding  school can only be done in terms  of recognizing extreme  differences. At the same time, I  mean no ill will to the woman -  or to others - who see these two  as the same.  We are all human beings who  perceive through eyes with  blinders designed from our own  experiences and acquired  knowledge. The task is to  recognize the blind spots and  turn the head to see.

Senior secondary school  students from across the  province have been invited to  present thoughts and ideas about  sustainable development to the  British Columbia Round Table  on the Environment and the  Economy. They can do so  through essays and a two-day  Youth Forum scheduled in  Vancouver, Nov. 19 and 20.  C. J. Connaghan, who chairs  the B.C. Round Table, said the  Youth Forum is being sponsored  by The Round Table and the  B.C. Ministry of Education,  with transportation support from  Canadian Airlines International  and Time Air.  The Youth Forum will bring  some 80 students together with  members of the Round Table.

Essays prepared as part of  the process leading to the Forum  will be reviewed by the Round  Table and by the Education  Ministry so that all participants  will Ik heard.  Students interested in taking  part are asked to prepare an essay  of 250 to 500 words expressing  their thoughts and feelings about  sustainable development in  British Columbia and what the  education system might do to  help achieve it.  Each submission will be  reviewed in a process through  which one student from each  school district will be chosen to  attend the Youth Forum. A copy  of each essay will be given to  The Round Table for  consideration in its work and to  the Ministry of Education for  review of the ideas on how to  address "sustainable  development" issues within the  province's education system.  Transportation, hotel and meal  costs for each student selected to  attend the Youth Forum will be  provided by the sponsors.  The participants will meet  with members of the Round  Table - in workshops, discussion  groups and open meetings - to  become part of the process from  which the Round Table will  develop its recommendations to  the Government of British  Columbia.  During the Youth Forum, one  student is to be selected to  represent the forum participants  at the opening of a 2 1/2-day  meeting (in Vancouver, Nov.21-  23) of the Canadian Round  Tables on Environment and  Economy. Each province, the  Yukon and the Northwest  Territories has established a  Round Table, as has the federal  government. The Vancouver  meeting will bring together  members from each of these  Round Tables to exchange ideas,  experiences and future plans.  Further information about the  Youth Forum is being made  available through public libraries  and senior secondary schools  throughout the province.  Information is also available  from the British Columbia  Round Table offices in Victoria,  1-800-665-7002 (Monday to  Friday).

A winning Pigs team  ��  oast *T6-1  b_._erLld.__2!  Shuf Sate. Repairs A Acc��sonrs  Yeow! Things are happening  now! The boys in blue are in  high gear these past two  weekends. Sept 21 and 28 saw a  1 win-1 loss split, but the way  in which it was done was  spectacular.  Sept.21 was against the  Trojans RFC away in  Vancouver. Showing up early at  the field boded well for the lads  this day. Prepared and ready to  go, they were.  The Pigs were then surprised  by the Trojans and spent the first  10 minutes of the game bottled  up inside their own 22 metres  (two-bit for you oldsters). Tough  defense and determination saw no  scores and with that relief the  fellows managed to bump and  grind their way back down the  other way.  Quickly, they struck and were  up two tries. The match bounced  back and forth throughout much  of its course and eventually,  with time running out, it looked  as though a victory was close at  hand.  But, alas, the thrill of it was  not to be. The Trojans were, up  marginally and, with moments  to go, the Pigs mounted a  tremendous team effort and had  "Q" in the comer with a score!  "Oh, no!" said the referee,  with the Trojan sidelines  screaming out. The Ref thought  that a good call and disallowed  the try. The game thus ended,  Trojans 31, Pigs 25. Close but  no cigar. A great team effort  with Q in the forefront leading  with three tries on the day. Good  work, lads!  Sept 28 saw another over-seas  trip to the lovely shoreline at  Jericho. After last week, the  fever was at.an all-time high.  UBCOB were thought to be a  strong side, but at game time  were short players. By kick-off,  fifteen players were started. A  young looking side they were,  On the Rocks  byf wry Turn*  The curling rink in Gibsons  has four sheets of ice. It  accommodates 32 curlers at a  time. An eight end game takes  two hours to play and usually  two draws are scheduled in one  evening. Tlie first draw usually  takes place at 7 pm and the  second at 9 pm. There are also  daytime leagues for ladies and  seniors.  After their game, curlers can  take a break and watch ihe next  scheduled game from the lounge  upstairs. Teams often take this  time to socialize and celebrate  their win or commiserate over a  loss. Many curlers play other  teams' games from the safety of  the lounge. It is safe to say that  a rock has never been played  badly by the spectators in the  lounge.  The length of a 'sheet from  backboard to backboard is 146'  or 44.5 metres. The width of a  sheet is 14'2" or 4.418 metres.  At each end of the sheet there is  a back line, a bee line which  goes through the centre of the  circles and a hog line.  A rock must cross the hog  line before it comes into play. A  rock which does not cross the  hog line is removed from play.  Although the length of a curling  sheet seems a long way, even  kids in grades 5 and 6 at the  elementary school are able to  throw the rock from one end of  the sheet to the other. Both the  junior leagues and the Friday  night fun league have kids of  this age enjoying the game.  If you feel you would like to  enroll your kids in the junior  program you can contact the  club at 886-7512. The kids  really enjoy it. If you would like  to participate in the club  yourself, feel free to contact one  of Ihe club members. Some  members you might contact are  June Fransden, 886-9815; Brenda  Balon, 885-7229 or Club  President Gary Flumerfelt at  886-9656.  Any of of these members  would be very pleased to ensure  you are signed up for the fall  leagues.

Irom Sunnycrctl Mall)  NATIONAL REAL  ESTATE SERVICE  GIBSONS RECYCLING DEPOT  Recycling Tips  A popular way to make a compost is to construct a wooden box  without a top or bottom. The size Is up to you, but 4' long by 2' wide  by V high should do It nicely.  Dig a hole 18 inches deep and slightly smaller than the box, so  the box rests (Irmly on the ground above the hole. Drive wooden  stakes into the bottom of the pit, 12 inches apart.  When the box is nearly full with layers of composted materials,  moisten the compost and remove the stakes so you have 'chimneys'  of air for ventilation.  Keep the box covered, and moisten when necessary. It will take  about 2 months for the material to break down.

This was a match made in  practice. Right from the outset  the fitter Blues charged onward,  using all their assets and trying  new ones. Too bad you fans  weren't there.  Both the forwards (the mighty  mites) and the backs were  runnirg rampant. At the end and  through it all, Pigs notched 11  (yes, 11) tries with only four  converts; no penalties kicked.  Imagine, with 7 more 2-pointers  and a couple more tries that were  called back - wow, what a machine! As it was, the powerful  Pigs wound up on top with a  resounding S2-9 victory.

The people from  Apple walked into the office  with it in a, now standard, cor  dura bag. Because of its compact  size and then unusual profile no  one recognized it as a computer.  For years both IBM and  Macintosh computers cost too  much. You could always buy an  IBM clone. But unlike the Apple  II computer which had a variety  of cheap clones, the Macintosh  had none.  Apple profited from every  Macintosh sold and kept their  share holders happy by taking  large margins on their computers. IBM, for all their research,  marketing and positioning of  their product lost a high percentage of sales to compatible manufactures, and saw no revenue .  from these sales. At the same  time IBM saw increased competition on all other fronts.  Recently, for the first time IBM  has laid off employees, and  partly as a result, grossly missed  their quarterly revenue targets.  Tlie introduction of windows  3.0 for IBM compatible computers, while shipping 3 million  copies to date, has acted to legitimize the much more polished  Macintosh Operatiqn System. A  recent sludy by Los Angeles-  based Ingram Laboratories concluded that Apple Macintosh  computers offer the best  price/performance value when  compared to similarly configured  IBM and Compaq personal  computers.  Last year Apple decided to go  for volume instead of margin.  They reduced prices and added the  low end Classic LC and SI to  their line of Macintosh computers. Watch for six new models  later this month.  An IBM/Apple technology alliance was finalize Oct. 2. Both  companies contribute strong  technology and marketing  positions.  Apple provides a new object-  based    operating    system,  QuickTime: time-based multimedia support, Appletalk networking and several other useful  technologies. With approximately $500 million in research  and development in Ihe last year,  Apple does substantial and focused new work. This pales in  comparison to the several billion  that IBM spends for research and  development in the same period.  IBM brings a powerful RS/6000  RISC processor and other technologies which will become the  basis for both IBM and Apple  computers in the future. Both  partners are also looking at the  lucrative market for consumer  electronic devices. Watch out  Nintendo.  Maybe some of IBM's great  technology, with Apples help,  will finally see the light of day  before it becomes obsolete.  Both IBM and Apple will control this technology, but say that  they will licence their technology lo other manufactures.  Motorola is already involved. In  Ihe near future aggressively  priced and compatible products  from both Apple and IBM will  create large new markets for  knowledge based products.  Perhaps, a product that you create will address one of those  markets.  Talk to me. Thinking  Machines c/o Coast News. I  would like to know you, your  dreams and thinking machines.  Realtors place in top 100  Four real estate salesmen  from NRS Gibsons Realty have  placed in the top 100 for real  estate sales in all the offices of  NRS in Canada, the US and  Asia.  International president of the  company, Oswald F Jurock,  made the announcement at a  breakfast meeting of the local  sales staff last week, naming Jon  McRae, Bill Howe, Rob Jardine  and John Hanson as the top  producers of the Gibsons  company.  Jurock said MacRae and  Howe were also in the top five  of the international team.  In an interview with the  Coast News owner-manager  Steve Sawyer said he bought  Gibsons Realty in 1987 and  shortly after joined National  Real Estate Service as a  franchisee. He is justly proud of  his sales force who won their  laurels in competition with a  total world wide NRS sales force  of over 3000.  "These men are all well  known here," he said. "I've  assembled a team of heavy  hitters, they're all very  professional realtors."  The salesmen will receive  plaques of recognition at an  awards banquet in Vancouver  next month.

(Hani) Main  Since the early 1920s, the  economy of the Sunshine Coast  has depended, to a large degree,  on a key employer - "The Mill"  - or "Pott Mellon", as it is called  locally.  Fishing, logging and tourism  have played their parts as well,  but the mill has been a non-  seasonal, long-term winner.  But today, as regional jobs increase and more and more people  living on the Coast commute to  Vancouver to earn a living, Port  Mellon's pulp production and  resulting jobs, though still  important, are becoming less  critical   to   local   business.  Secondary industry is providing  an increasing volume of work,  and resident disposable income is  on the rise.  The auto-body shops, local  retailers and service businesses  are well established and  flourishing.  As the whole Coast  transforms into a bedroom  community to Vancouver and  retirement mecca, development  has continued at an ever-  increasing pace. Property values  are beginning to show trends  similar to that in the Fraser  Valley. And a drive through  downtown Gibsons or Sechelt at  5 pm shows symptoms of  becoming stressful.  The days I recall of walking  barefoot in the hot sunimer sun  down Marine Drive in Gibsons,  from Armours Float to (he old  Coop, are certainly gone.  But what will become of the  peace and beauty we've enjoyed?  I suppose the answer to that  question lies in the hands of the  developers, local politicians and  people like you and inc. With  the population of Ihe Lower  Mainland expected to double in  the next 15-20 years, tliere can  only be one possible result for  the Coast. Growth! More growth  than any of us might possibly  imagine or have seen even in the  last few years.  I can't help but feel a sense of  sadness at die thought.  However, I can also remember  well the days when "the Mill"  would shut down or a strike  would be called. When that  happened, it wasn't only Port  Mellon employees who suffered.  It was virtually everyone on the  Coast. People, by necessity, had  to quit paying bills and limit or  quit purchasing goods and  services until the storm cleared.  Less dependence on a "one-  industry" economy certainly has  its benefits.

Marketing for tips  Cottage industries  5  v  The second of two workshops  designed to enhance the  performance of home-based  businesses will be offered in  Sechelt.  The workshop series,  developed by tht Ministry of  Development, Trade and  Tourism, in cooperation with  B.C. Chambers of Commerce  and the Sunshine Coast Business  Development Centre Ltd., is designed lo promote the home as a  viable place for carrying on a  business and to increase the  number of successful home-  bused businesses.  The second workshop picks up  where the first left off and targets  ihe entrepreneur who has already  established a business. The  eight-hour seminar covers:  effective marketing plans;  marketing from the home;  advertising, promotion and  publicity; selling; developing  the right image; examples of  home-based business marketing;  and managing more efficiently  and profitably.

The Protocol  further commits signatories to  refrain from using large-scale  driftnets in their own waters, to  bar the driftnetting vessels from  their ports, and prohibits the  landing or trans-shipment of  driftm-l-caught fish and fish  producLs.  "This is a real shot in the aim  for the South Pacific nations,  who have been working  tirelessly for the past few years  to save their fisheries and  wildlife from the threat of  driftnet fishing," notes  Greenpeace fisheries campaigner  Marina Lent. "It also sends an  important signal of Canada's  commitment to try to eliminate  destructive fishing technologies  on the high seas through  international agreements rather  than unilateral measures."  The Convention was  negotiated and signed by South  Pacific member states in  Wellington, New Zealand, on  November 24, 1989. High seas  driftnets were rapidly destroying  the tuna resource upon which the  island nations rely for food and  for an important part of their  income.  The fleet had increased to a  total of approximately 160  vessels before the countries in  the region even knew they were  there. Scientists estimated that  tuna stocks could sustain maybe  two more years of such intensive  fishing effort before crashing.  United Nations Resolution  44/225 on large-scale, high seas  driftnet fishing, which passed by  consensus in December 1989,  called for immediate reduction of  driftnet fishing in the South  Pacific, leading to the  elimination of driftnets from the  region by June, 1991. Japan and  South Korea, acknowledging the  strong concerns of countries of  the region, announced their  withdrawal well ahead of the UN  deadline. Taiwanese vessels  continued to fish the area in  1991.  A similar deadline is set for  the North Pacific and all the  world's oceans and seas starting  on June 30,1992.  "The upcoming United  Nation- General Assembly will  be decisive for the North  Pacific," says Marina Lent, who  will be representing Greenpeace  at the UN this fall. "The  diplomatic momentum built up  by regional initiatives such as  the Wellington Convention can  be used to achieve a global  consensus to implement the  moratorium called for 1992."

These students have  the opportunity to learn a new  language, discover a new culture  and visit a country, not as a  tourist, but as a full member of  the family and community where  they are hosted. It's truly an  experience they will never  forget.  Tlie students' host families undergo careful selection and are  matched with students who have  similar interests and values.  During their stay abroad, the  students also receive support  from experienced volunteer  counsellors who help them  integrate into their host families  and adapt to the cultural and  linguistic differences in their  host country.  The students often see many  positive changes in themselves  after their experience. They are  more self-assured, better able to  appreciate a style of living  different from their own and are  more conscious of and concerned  about the world around them.  AFS Interculture Canada is  proud of its role in encouraging  friendships that last a lifetime. A  student who participated in the  program explains, "Since I  returned from Brazil, I react  differently when I hear news  about it on the radio, on television or in the newspaper. I  hear about things that affect the  people I love and who love me.  Hearing or reading about a  distant country is one thing; but  after living there, news has a  very different meaning."  Next year, AFS Interculture  Canada will send 320 students to  35 countries around the world.  These young people musl he  between 15 and 18 years old,  open-minded, able to adapt to a  new environment and, above all,  they must truly want to share  their own culture and discover a  new one.  Students wishing to apply  should do so as soon as possible  by calling 1-800-361-1879.  Breakaway moves  Breakaway's third Annual  General Meeting was held  Thursday, Sept. 26, in Gibsons.

Parents'  Meetings continue every  Monday evening, and Breakaway  is actively working with the  parents and teens to improve  family communication.

Although Kunderman may  not feel her time in the WHO  qualifies her to completely understand the complex cultures  of the countries she lived in -  Iran, Sri Lanka, India, Nepal and  Burma, - a book about her experiences would unquestionably  make interesting reading.  "WHO operates on Ihe principle of preparing a counterpart  who is a national nurse, usually  llie chief nurse or chief tutor,  and preparing her to do what  you're doing, and then you  leave," she explained, "In oilier  words, you don't go in and do a  job. It's a consultation."  Her first posting was to Iran,  when the Shall was still in  power. There she helped establish the first government training school for nurses.  "Their practise was to have  untrained servants look after patients, and that can be lethal,"  she said. "If tlie servant was  looking after a post-operative  patient, and he wanted to go to  sleep, he just opened up the slop  cock on the intravenous and  went off to sleep, - and that  kills the patient!  "Most Asian cultures are  based on the extended family  unit. Caring for strangers is not  something they're brought up  with. If someone is sick, they're  cared for by the family. They  don't expect a stranger to care.  "I gave blood several times  because I'm an A-negalive, and  that's a type of blood that's crucial for infants with the RH-  iicgalive factor.  "The families simply  couldn't understand lhat I  would do this voluntarily, and  without expecting lo meel Ihem  and have any lhanks. They'd  come lo the house with fruit and  vegetables and flowers, and say  to the servants, 'Why is your  madam doing this? We don't  know her.' ll was quite  incomprehensible to them.

It's much  better now, especially in India.  "In Iran, the patients used to  say to the nursing students,-  'why has your mother allowed  you to do this dirty job?', and  they'd give them some money so  they could go home and 'look after your family and not be here'.  "It was very hard for the students."  In Madras Kunderman remembers three thousand children were brought to the hospital every day with only eight or  nine doctors and not enough  nurses to attend to them.  She remembers, too, animals  were everywhere, - pariah dogs  that multiplied without restraint, and wandered into the  hospital, and cows that were  brought to the windows so the  dying could touch them.  Kunderman was in Katmandu  in Nepal during the hippie era in  the sixties. "They came in droves  for the marijuana which was  freely available in the bazaars....  They got sick, Ihey ale the raw  vegetables and the raw fruit and  they were hospitalized.  "And then we had what we  called the EWTs, Ihe 'Earnest  World Travellers', - mostly  young men who came to 'find  themselves', - and many of them  did. They were a wonderful  group. They lived with the nationals, and respected them and  learned things like the Nepalese  art of paper making and wood  block printing.  " They were a wonderful  group of young people who  were traveling for the right reasons. The hippies were traveling  for the wrong reasons.  "That's exactly it for international work, you can be in it for  the right reasons, or you can be  in il for the wrong reasons. If  you're in it for the work, that's  fine. Bul if you're in it for the  salary, il's not."  North Americans are apt to  think it would be close to  heaven to live in a country  where there are four or five servants in every home, but  Kunderman is quick to point out  there is a price to pay for such  apparent luxury.  "You're providing good employment for your servants,"  she said. "Also, you take on their  families at the same time. You  must provide quarters for them,  you must see they're immunized,  you must see they're de-wormed  every three months, that their  children get to school, and when  you leave, you're expected to do  something for them.  "I was in Katmandu for five  years, and when 1 left I gave my  gardener a plot of land, and for  the cook who had been with me  for five years 1 had a roof put on  his house."  Kunderman found eighteen  years in international work  changed her system of values.  She said she reached a point of no  return where she could no  longer work in Canada because  all her experience had been with  leprosy and tuberculosis and  malaria, which are of no concern  here.  There is no way to prepare  for the experiences of a  different culture, she maintains.  It's a matter of going in and  feeling your way, - and being  satisfied with small gains, - that  sometimes seem like miracles.  It took nearly ten years before she felt she belonged, that  what she was doing suited her.  The secret, she found, was not to  be so affected by what she saw  that it paralyzed her.  "But," she adds, "if you stop  seeing what's around you, you're  in trouble. Some people fall  apart because they can't cope  with the poverty, (he illness,  the filth, the heat and the dust."  Kunderman started to collect  local   art   during   her   first  posting in Iran. "When you're  living in Asia, there's no  entertainment other than  cocktail parties with the  international UN group. They're  very interesting people, - but  there's no radio, no TV, no  cinemas, no theatres, - nothing.  So I started to collect art since I  was interested in it."  The collection gradually  grew to the point where it took  a lift van filled with 17 trunks  to move it from country to  country  By the time Kunderman retired to Gibsons in 1977, the lift  van was filled with treasures  from five different Asian countries. After enjoying her collection for several years, she decided to donate the bulk of it  (159 pieces) to the Vancouver  museum.  Now Eleanor Kunderman has  a new set of hobbies. She is trying her hand at painting, ceramics, bonsai and gardening.  And she's still collecting. In  her home, among the favourite  Asian pieces she kept for herself, are now the works of many  BC artists, potters and  sculptors.  Some of the artists are from  the Sunshine Coast. There's a  Trudy Small painting in the  house, and in the garden one of  Dudley Carter's works is right  at home among the firs and  cedars.  Organic  Veggies  <# low, low prices!
