 Uwislat.W*  BulldiM  Parliament   Buildings  VICTORIA.   0-c-  95.09  V8V   1X5  Attention  50 cents per copy on newsstands  NEWS  ESTABLISHED    1945  December 5,1994 Volume 49 Issue 49  Provincial  election  bats  appearing  in the ring  by Jane Seyd  Election? What election?  A big provincial show-down  may be as much as two years into  the future, but on the Sunshine  Coast political parties of all  stripes are already beginning to  gear up for the next race for the  legislature.  Just what kind of campaign  it'll be in the Sunshine Coast riding and who'll be ahead whenever the gates open is so far anyone's guess. "It's really early  days to speculate," says Norman  Ruff, a political science professor  at the University of Victoria.  Local incumbent MLA Gordon Wilson - former provincial  Liberal leader and now leader of  his own Progressive Democratic  Alliance (PDA)- is quick to  answer questions on his plans for  the next provincial election.  "Yes, I intend to run again  and, yes, I intend to run again  here," he says. Currently there are  421 members of the PDA in the  Sunshine Coast-Powell River riding, according to Ron Harvey,  president ofthe party.  Despite personal scandals and  his loss of the Liberal leadership,  Wilson says he hasn't lost political credibility with electors.  For the most part, Ruff agrees.  "I would give him a good  edge," he says of Wilson, citing  "the power of the incumbent" ud  the local MLA's effectiveness as  a speaker in the legislature.  As for personal credibility,  says Ruff, "Not too many politicians hold up to that kind of  scrutiny these days."  On the topic of the party which  Wilson represented last time  around, Ruff predicts the Liberals  will choose a high-profile local  candidate to jump into the fray.  In fact, so far the local Liberals  are the only party which has had  members come forward and publicly announce they will be seeking the candidate's job.  Three of those are from the  lower Sunshine Coast and include  Sechelt Councillor Duncan Fraser, RCMP Staff Sergeant Cam  Reid and former Sechell Councillor Bob Wilson. From the upper  half of the riding, Joyce Carlson  has also announced her intentions  of running.  Colin Palmer, the Liberal riding association president who presides over 350 current members,  says the party plans to have a candidate selection meeting in February next year.  "It's best to do it early, rather  than at the last minute," he says.  Palmer adds that this is the  first time there's actually been a  race for the local candidacy.  As for bis former leader's  chances, "I don't think Gordon  Wilson has any suppon," he says.  But the local party which was  surprised by Wilson's surge in the  last provincial election is less  quick to write him out of the  equation.  Currently, personal support of  Wilson is still an "unknown factor", says Bill Forst, president of  the New Democrat's constituency  association.  Forst says the party will be setting up an election planning team  in in January, and adds so far  there are two or three people who  have indicated they may be interested in running.  Howard White - the local book  publisher and NDP candidate in  the last election - says so far he  hasn't decided whether he will  run again.  Ruff predicts the NDP will  likely have a strong showing in  the riding although currently the  government party is down in the  polls province-wide.  turn to reform party on page 2  Ho, Ho, Ho  Along with December conies 01' Saint Nlck...or Santa Claus as Brynn, left, and Kalynn Campbell discovered at Sunnycrest Mall as  they had their seasonal moment captured on film. Joel Johnstone photo  Gibsons looking into youth loitering  by Mike O'Keeffe  Oibsons council is working with the  RCMP and other interested groups to find a  solution to the problem of youth loitering  within town.  At the request of the management of Sunnycrest Mall, council hosted a round-table  discussion Nov. 29. Included in the talks  were representatives of the Gibsons RCMP,  the mall management, the Lower Gibsons  Downtown Merchants Association, and the  Chamber of Commerce.  Also included was a Sechelt youth worker, the Elphinstone high-school principal, a  local publisher, and concerned parents.  Participants discussed probable causes of  loitering as well as kitfc possible solutions.  They also addressed the lack, of activities for  local young people in town and the difficulty  in understanding what activities they want.  "We all agreed that it is important to get  input from young people sn how to address  this," said Mayor Eric Small in an interview.  He said the group hopes to involve local  teenagers in its next meeting, being planned  for January or February.'  Small noted, however, that consultation  with young people can be misleading. He  told the group of a recent video dance  planned for the Sea Cavalcade, based on  consultation with local teens.  He said the dance was veiy poorly attended, even though planners provided everything the youths requested.  "Youth say there is nothing being done  for them, but when we do something,  nobody comes," he said. "Maybe they asked  the wrong group of kids." Small said that,'  bringing a variety of groups together to work  out a solution is "a very positive step in  itself."  Turn to youths on page 3  Pender police presence on the increase  by Sandra Smith  Residents of the coastal community of Pender Harbour enjoy  their peace and quiet and, for  that reason, don't always mind  being a little "out of the way."  However, the inadequate  policing which has resulted from  having the RCMP station based  a half hour away in Sechelt  hasn't gone unnoticed.  Community members have  raised their voices in the past  about their concerns. Now, it  seems Iheir voices have been  beard.  The Sechell RCMP detachment and community members  have come up with a solution to  serve Ihe area belter ��� a volunteer community police centre in  Pender Harbour, sel to open January 17.  The idea of a community  police station came up more  than a year ago al a public meeling wilh strong support from the  business community, said Volunteer Coordinator Elaine  Dewandel.  "The interest has always been  there bul ihere haven't been  enough people to fill the need  until now," she said.  Public response has been  excellent wilh IS volunteers  signing up in just Ihree weeks  and local businesses donating  time and equipment, she said.  Volunteers will pul in a half-  day twice a month at the new  station which will operate three  days a week from a donated  office inside the Waterworks  building on Lagoon Rd.  The volunteers will keep labs  on crime and other problems in  Pender Harbour and act as  liaisons with lhe Sechell RCMP.  They will also be trained in  referring victims of crime to the  Pender Harbour's community policing program gets underway  pressure from the community.  proper support services available  on the coasl. Organizers plan to  involve senior high school students in the program as well.  Pender is currently served by  Cst. Fred Bott who checks in on  area residents al irregular times.  Under Ihe new program, Bott  will be on-site Tuesdays and  Thursdays.  "In die past, there have been  break-in problems in the communily and, as a result, there's  been a request for increased  policing," Bott said.  "Dave Orr at the Chamber of  Commerce brought it to our  attention bul we weren't in a  position to instantly drop a  detachment in Ihe back yard and  provide the manpower (needed  in Pender)."  He added Pender residents  have often refrained from calling the RCMP for immediate  problems because they know  they won't receive immediate  service. For lhat reason, crime  statistics for Pender Harbour  aren't high enough to qualify for  more RCMP attention.  "It's the squeaky wheel syndrome. You can't get more  policing if you can't show you  need il," he said.  "We're not going to say  you're going to get more police  manpower in here now but, over  in January following continued  Sandra Smith photo  a period of time, if Ihe need is  seen by the numbers, it could be  a possibility."  During an open house last  Thursday, volunteers received  their first two cases ��� a report  of a break-in and an inquiry  about the legitimacy of a business.  In addition to dealing with  problems after the fact, volunteers hope to play a role in crime  prevention through community  involvement.  One volunteer named Doris  believes it can work.  "If everybody helps, we can  make this a better community,"  she said.  ������������������������������������  ]  ���������'  ^���j^L." i  ��  *  ffL  !.

Elphie LRUP members, ministry meet  by Darah Hansen  After years of frustration and  disappointment, members of the  Mount Elphinstone Land  Resource Use Plan (LRUP) have  turned up the heat on discussions  surrounding forest use.  Recently several members of  the Mt. Elphinstone LRUP  bypassed the regular chain of  LRUP command at the Powell  River Forest Office to meet with  regional manager of the Vancouver Forest Region, Ken Collingwood.  Members present at the meeting, held Nov. 21 in Roberts  Creek, said it was an opportunity  to air what many at the LRUP  table feel are serious problems  with the Elphinstone land use  process.  In particular, the meeting represented a chance for the community groups to ask for a temporary "deferment" in logging  and industrial activity in the  Elphinstone forest until a work  ing plan for the entire forest area  is reached between the local  community and forest industry.  Logging in the Mount Elphinstone area includes several cut-  blocks planned  under a provin-  cial research project ��� aimed at  studying     the  effects and effi-    ^^^^^^  ciency of a variety of logging       methods, and the  small business enterprise program. To date, all requests for  temporary deferment of activity  in the area have been denied by  the local forest district.  "I think we presented a very  strong case. I think we articulated  very clearly what our concerns  were and are [with the LRUP  process)...and I think [Collingwood] was a very good listener,"  Donna Shugar. a representative  at Ihe LRUP table for Concerned  Coast Residents, said in last  7 think we presented  a very strong case'  -Donna Shugar  week's interview.  Along with Shugar's group,  the Collingwood meeting was  attended by representatives ofthe  Roberts Creek and Wilson  Creek/Davis Bay  community associations, Forest  Watch,       the  Elphinstone  Electors Association, as well as       directors from  the    Sunshine  Coast Regional District.  During the meeting, members  said Collingwood was read the  "abridged chronology" of the  Elphinstone LRUP ��� which is  designed to provide a working  plan for the recreational, park  and industry use of the Elphinstone forest.  He was told how, according to  records kept by the various  LRUP committee members,  promises have been made and  broken by the local forest district  Walking  in the  rain...  by  George!

Joel Johnstone  photo  Woodcreek considered 'political'  by Jane Seyd  The chief medical officer for the Sunshine Coast  will once again be tossing the issue of the malfunctioning Woodcreek Park sewage system into the  political arena following a meeting on the subject  last week with government officials.  Dr. Paul Martiquet said he learned at a meeting  Nov. 26 there is no money available to cover emergency situations such as the Woodcreek septic field.  Local officials were also told they wouldn't likely see any money for the project from a revenue  sharing grant for at least another year.  Martiquet said this week as far as he's concerned  that's unacceptable. "I'm not prepared to allow to  the Woodcreek situation to exist for another year,"  he said. Martiquet said he'll be asking the union  board of health to raise the issue with provincial  ministers of both health and environment.  "It has to become political at this point"  For years now, residents at the subdivision outside Gibsons have been battling both the developer  of the property and the Ministry of Environment  over a failing septic system which has in the past  sent sewage spilling over people's properties.  NOTICE OF  TEMPORARY WATER  SHUT-OFF IN  THE ZONE II AREA  Please  be  advised  that,  weather  permitting (no  heavy rains), water in a part of the Zone II Area  will    be   temporarily   shut   down   on   Tuesday,  December 6th/94 between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.  The area affected in Zone II will be all property  serviced off Highway 101 from North Road to the  top end of Bals Lane, including Wyngaert Road  Martin Road and North Fletcher Road, and also  Fairmount Subdivision.  The reason for the shut down is due to a water  line upgrade at Crucil Road.

Another unknown at this point is the presence of a provincial  Reform Party on the local scene.  "Everyone's watching the Reform Party," says Ruff. "That's the big  question mark."  In October, Ihe party had an initial meeting in Gibsons. There,  members said they're hoping to establish a constituency on the Sunshine Coast in time for the next election.  If that happens, it could be a four-way race lo the legislature.  "In that case all bets are off," says Ruff.

Community representatives  also used the Collingwood meeting to protest a number of "clear  violations" of process including  cancelled meetings, omissions  and errors in minutes taken at  LRUP meetings, lack of available dala referring to the LRUP  area, and lack of cooperation  from the local forestry department.  "The common theme is the  lack of honesty and integrity with  the district forest office," Dan  Bouman of Concerned Coast  Residents said in last week's  interview.  "It is the regional manager's  duly, his obligation, to teach the  district office how to behave with  honesty and integrity. That is  fundamental here."  A decision from Colling-  wood's office regarding requests  made of him during November's  meeting is expected sometime  this week.  Conflict  stirred  by final  LRUP  report  by Jane Seyd  Just when you thought a conclusion of sorts had been reached  by members of the Tetrahedron  Local Resource Use Plan  (LRUP) team, a new round of  arguments has broken out  between environmentalists and  the Ministry of Forests over a  final report to be sent to the  provincial Protected Areas Strategy (PAS).  A spokesman for the Tetrahedron Alliance said this week the  group is unhappy because the  Ministry of Forests has refused  to endorse the full report, which  includes information collected  by the group over the past four  years during discussions over the  fate of the Tetrahedron Plateau.  The alliance is also upset that  the ministry asked some forest  industry representatives on the  LRUP to write letters explaining  why they have chosen not to sign  the report.  Said alliance member Dan  Bouman, "The ministry is continuing to be an aggressive proponent of logging in the Tetrahedron despite their value-neutral  position."  By not signing the document  members accepted at the final  meeting, it means the ministry is  "taking sides," said Bouman.  Earlier this year, the LRUP  team recommended preservation  of 87 per cent of the Tetrahedron  study area. No consensus could  be reached on the remaining 13  per cent of land.  At a final meeting held at the  end of October, LRUP members  spent almost four hours going  over a copy of Ihe final report,  arguing over wording changes.  But on Friday, district forest  manager Greg Hemphill said the  ministry still has problems with  the report and will not be signing  approval ofthe document.  Hemphill declined to say  which parts of the report the  ministry disagreed with, commenting that there would be "no  real benefit" in going into specific details.  He added that other LRUP  members ��� some of whom  weren't at Ihe final meeting ���  also disagreed with the report,  "and that viewpoint should be  recognized."  "The alternative would be for  the Forest Service to write Ihe  final report."  Asked if the Forest Service  would be forwarding its own  views on the controversial area  lo the Protected Areas Strategy,  Hemphill said, "I have no doubt  we'll be asked to identify some  options and make some recommendations on what should happen."  He added that under the Protected Areas Strategy, "any decision to make the area a park or  whatever will come from cabinet."  "All the acrimony over areas  of disagreement doesn't make a  lot of difference. Somebody else  is going to make a decision." Coast News, December 5, 1994  news  Year-round schooling to be pondered  by Sandra Smith  Local classrooms are crowded, the population is growing,  and the $50 million requested by  the school board to build new  schools isn't likely to materialize, says local school superintendent Bob Johnstone.  That's why, starting January,  he plans to encourage trustees to  examine other alternatives to  accommodate students on the  Sunshine Coast. Year-round  schooling and day-shift systems  will likely be on the agenda,  Johnstone said in an interview.  Currently, there are 4,000 students in the district, already  exceeding the capacity of 3,000.  The overflow is housed in 40  classroom portables, which  encroach upon areas meant to be  playing fields. According to a  1992 consultant's report, the  local student population is  expected to climb to 5,500 by  2001.  As part of their five year capital plan, the district requested  $50 million from the BC government to build four intermediate  schools to serve kids in grades 6  to 9. The plan entailed modifying existing schools so elementary schools would serve kids in  kindergarten to grade five and  high schools would serve kids in  grades 10 to 12.  However, Johnstone is losing  hope for the plan, saying education facilities across the province  are not receiving adequate government funding.  BC school boards requested  just over $1 billion this year and  in 1993/94 for new capital projects, yet only about half of that  has been granted and even less  actually spent, said Leslie White,  a spokeswoman for the ministry  of education.  Johnstone believes the financial crunch will get worse.  "I'm just not sure in the next  five years we're going to get  approval to build four more  schools and upgrade the rest, so  my view is, we have to rethink  it," he said.  Year-round schooling "hasn't  been talked about seriously" yet,  Johnstone said, but might be a  feasible way to alleviate the  problem. He and other district  officials will be watching closely  next year as year-round schooling is implemeted in sue BC districts ��� Abbotsford, Coquitlam,  Maple Ridge, Courtenay,  Nanaimo and Vernon.  Crowding in Coast schools Is forcing Ihe school district to explore  other options to traditional education. Joel Johnstone photo  In a year-round multi-track  schedule, students are assigned  groups which begin and end the  school year at different times.  Vacations are shorter and occur  more often so that one group is  always out of the building. Parents generally have the option to  choose which track to enroll  their children in.  In the United States, year-  round schooling has been growing in popularity during the last  20 years and is curently in practice in more than 2,500 schools,  according to the Education  Leader, a BC school trustees  magazine.  Most school districts are  swayed by financial constraints.  Using existing schools costs less,  in the short term, than building  new ones.  Education Minister Art Charbonneau claims the system  offers many advantages. In a  news release he cites relief from  overcrowding, fewer drop-outs,  less teacher bum-out, less absenteeism, more work experience,,  opportunities for students'  throughout the year as some of  the benefits. He also cites  "increased knowledge-retention"  ��� kids don't "forget" as much  during the shorter vacations  offered with the year-round  schedule.  Other advantages, according  to Charbonneau, include the  flexibility parents may gain in  choosing their children's vacation time, a feature found attractive by seasonal workers in the  fishing, logging and construction  industries.  Among other possible alternatives lo be examined, Johnstone suggested a shift system of  two daily sessions which would  effectively double a school's  capacity. In a hypothetical example, morning sessions might run  from 7:30 am until 12:30 pm and  afternoon sessions might run  from 1 pm until 6 pm, he said.  "It increases the capacity  much more than year-round  schooling does."  He admitted that few people  usually embrace the idea of a  shift system because kids and  their parents have to wake up  earlier or finish their day later  than usual. Other issues arise  around storage facilities such as  school lockers and desks where  students have been able to keep  their books.  "People also talk about day  care issues, but not too many  people have their daycare problems solved now anyhow  because most people don't work  nine to three."  Breaking the public's mindset  about the traditional school year  will be the biggest challenge,  Johnstone said. He emphasized  "all these ideas" have been discussed briefly and informally  and that no changes will occur  without public input.  "There are a lot of questions  we would have to ask ourselves.  It's helpful if the schools are  close together but that would be  pretty difficult for someone in  Madeira Park. That's not to say  we couldn't do it, just that it has  to be studied. Could we run a  year-round school and a regular  school at once? We would have  to look at that type of thing."  Other alternatives include  creating one large high school  for the Sunshine Coast instead of  the three which exist now, building an educational facility into  the proposed recreation complex  or, somehow, integrating senior  grades into the Capilano College  Sechelt campus, Johnstone said.  He said he discussed different  options with the college last year  and received "some interest."  Any revisions to the five-year  capital plan would have to be  submitted to government by the  end of this school year, he said.  Tri-Sil offers reward for blasting cap return  by Jane Seyd  While charges for improper  storage of explosives are still  being processed against four  local companies, Tri-Sil Minerals has come forward and  offered a reward of $20 for each  stolen blasting cap turned in to  police.  Staff Sergeant Cam Reid of  the Sechelt RCMP said the company ��� one of those with  charges pending against it ���  made the offer this week after a  visit to the detachment.  Reid said he considered the  move positive, because police  are encouraging anything which  will ensure blasting caps and  explosives are out of circulation  in the community.  For the past two weeks,  police have been investigating  cases of blasting caps, dynamite  and fireworks stolen by youths  from various local sites.  In the interests of public  safety, police have offered  amnesty to any young people  who turn in the stolen material.  Meanwhile, charges against  three companies will likely be  sworn this week, said Mike  Welsh, federal prosecutor.  A file on a fourth company is  still being prepared by police.  With the exception of Tri-Sil  Minerals, the names of the companies are not being released  until charges have been sworn,  say the RCMP.  Speaking from his office in  Vancouver, Alan Savage, a  spokesman and "outside" director for Tri-Sil, said the events of  the past two weeks have been  "extremely upsetting" for the  company. In addition to the  charges pending, the company  also had its explosives storage  and use permit cancelled by the  province Nov. 25.  So far, that hasn't affected  activities because "there's no  work going on on the site at the  moment," said Savage. But he  added it could affect future  operations.  Meanwhile, financial issues  of Tri-Sil's parent company  were also under discussion last  week as Tri Northern Resources  held its annual general meeting  in Calgary on Monday.  Savage said that to his  knowledge, neither Tri Sil or Tri  Northern are currently pursuing  stock exchange listing.  He said he didn't know if that  would affect the company's  ability to develop a mine such as  the one proposed for Sechelt.  Youths need to speak for themselves: Small  from page 1  Small uid the town wants to address the  loitering problem before it gets out of hand.  "I get reports from people who say they  are nol comfortable walking in certain places  at certain times, and that bothers me," said  Small.  He said council wants to address what he  called a "perceived" lack of youth activities  in town.  "We would be glad to provide more activities, but, on the other side of the coin, there  are already about 20 or 30 things that young  people can do," said Small. "I have difficulty  with solutions being offered for young people by adults, because we don't always  understand iheir needs, but I don't see that  many young people coming forward to do  things for themselves."  Small said the group is "attempting to  find solutions without pointing fingers or  saying that youths are all bad, because lhat is  not the case."  Gibsons RCMP sergeant Rick Sargent  said he appreciated the opportunity to discuss the issue in a public forum.  "We [the RCMP] haven't got all the  answers, and sometimes we have tunnel  vision," said Sargent. "When we're dealing  with an issue that affects a large group of  people, it's good to get input from others.  The discussion was an excellent, healthy  idea, and I hope it will continue."  Mall management has declined to comment on its plans to curb loitering and  shoplifting on ils premises.  H**  i*  Treatyourself\  or your loved  one this  Christmas!

On this date in 1989, a man armed with a gun entered the Montreal engineering school, coolly chose his targets ��� then he murdered them.  His victims, 14 in all, were all young and they were all students,  but the thing that made them targets of the gunman's act of violence was their gender ��� they were all women.  From the moment that man pulled the trigger to shed blood, the  significance of the date, Dec. 6, was changed forever in Canadian  history.  It's a painful date to remember, certainly; moreover, it is a powerful date.  December 6 now brings together those devoted to ending the  violence against women in this town, in this province and in this  country. It signifies the recognition that violence against women  exists and will exist until more is done to end it.  On Dec. 6, light a candle in memory of those 14 women murdered in Montreal five years ago, or to any woman living in violence and fear.  Light a candle and make a pledge to help shed light on a dark  reality of our society.  Looking for Amnesty  in a world gone mad  This Christmas season, Amnesty International on the Sunshine  Coast is offering local residents the chance to help others around  the world receive the gift of freedom.  It doesn't take much ��� a signature showing support on a petition available to the public at the Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons Saturday, Dec. 10.  The petition urges the government of Indonesia to improve the  human rights situation in their own country and in East Timor ���  a former Portuguese colony occupied by the Indonesian government since 1975.  It demands the release of all prisoners of conscience and political prisoners; asks for the provision of fair trials; asks for investigation into political killings and "disappearances"; and asks for  compensation for victims and their relatives.  Tlie petition also demands an end to all executions, torture and  the use of evidence obtained under torture; that all those arrested  have access to their families, doctors, and lawyers of their choice;  and that national security interests cannot be invoked to imprison  prisoners of conscience. It further states those responsible for the  human rights violations should be brought to justice.  According to Amnesty International ��� a world-wide voluntary  organization working to prevent human rights violations by governments ��� Indonesia is the site of some of the gravest violations  in the world.  The group states the country's New Order Government is  responsible for human rights abuses on a "staggering" scale since  coming to power via a military coup in 1965.  "Hundreds of thousands of civilians have been killed; prisoners  have been routinely tortured, some so severely that they died;  thousands have been imprisoned following show trials solely for  their peaceful political or religious views," states a report published by the Canadian branch of Amnesty International.  And in East Timor, "similar patterns of human rights violations  have characterized counter-insurgency operations against groups  fighting for independence," the report says.  Join the campaign to end human rights violations in Indonesia  and East Timor. The victims need your help...it's a simple as that.  A cold wind  coming in February  A cold wind will blow hard  against the Sunshine Coast in  February of 1995.  This cold wind will carry  with it a harsh, sad reminder  that a piece of the soul of the  original Sunshine Coast has  gone forever.  With the anticipated passing  of the Coast News at the end of  January '95, Coast residents are  losing something that was there  when Sechelt was still a funky  little unincorporated village,  Gibsons hadn't been touched by  the hand of fame from the  Beachcombers and life on the  Coast was something altogether  different than anywhere else in  the world.  The reason the Coasl News is  such a special newspaper and  lives with such an aura is IT IS  the Sunshine Coast. It has been  the voice of reason, truth, controversy, intellect and reflection  for nearly 50 years. It has developed like the Coast - rapidly,  haphazardly but regally. It has  been and is a mirror reflection  of the Coast.  Perhaps it is a statement of  the times. The rapid growth of  the Sunshine Coast has trampled  more than one Coastal icon,  driven more than one long-time  local away and vacuumed more  than one institution into the 12  winds.  Despite the constant serpentine and inane ravings of the  Sunshine Press' John Pifer, the  Coast News was (is) your paper  folks.  It is the paper of note, the  paper with class, the paper with  an editorial staff FAR superior  in every way to the competitor.  I am extremely proud to have  been a part of the Coast News  family, albeit for only a year. In  that year I grew to love the  Coasl News and the people I  worked with.  I would gnaw my own toes  off with Jalapeno sauce stuck to  my lips to be able to work with  Stu Burnside, Joel Johnstone,  Darah Hansen or Jane Seyd  again.  Sunshine Coast newspaper  readers may already know how  good these professionals are, but  I promise you, when the week  comes that the Coasl News isn't  in your mailboxes or sitting on  the newsstand on the ferry or at  Fong's or any other locale in  which you've grown accustomed to picking it up, you'll  miss it. Life will not be the  same. That cold wind will buffet  your special place on earth and  the soul of your community will  become a little more detached, a  little more out of touch with the  beauty of its youth.  I know I never came close to  seeing the Sunshine Coast that  once was. I caught the odd  glimpse here or there or in the  words of some oldtimers. The  Coasl News, so rich in involve  ment in the community, gave  me my best view of the old  Coast and the new Coast.  My heart goes out to everyone at the paper, I miss you  guys and I dearly hope you're  able to find a way to keep this  endearing institution alive.  Long live the Sunshine Coast  News\  IAN COBB  Invermere  Choirfest extends  thanks  The organizers of the 7th  annual School District 46 Choirfest would like to thank the following people for their support  and participation.

MUSIC LOCAL  SPECIALISTS  ASSOCIATION, SCHOOL  DISTRICT 46  Finding a disguised truth...an enlightening experience  There was a strange, soot-covered, bearded fat  man in my living room when I arrived home from  work the other day. I wasn't too surprised to find a  stranger in the house as the door is seldom locked  and people are always wandering in looking for  some long-lost friend reputed to still be living in  the place.  This fellow, however, was comfortably  ensconced in my favourite chair and quaffing a pint  of beer I recognized as having come from my  fridge. His boots were off and his stockinged feet  were extended to the coffee table ��� a large toe protruded through a hole in one of the socks. Beneath  the soot, I could see he was dressed all in red.  "Can I help you?" I asked.  "HO, HO, HO," he said, his belly quivering like,  well, like jelly and with his cheeks splotched pink.  There was something of a disturbing, oleaginous  sheen to him.  Okay, I thought. It's a little soon to get nervous.  Maybe he's had more than one beer.  "I came down the chimney," he informed me  with a wide, gap-toothed grin, his eyes ��� beady,  blue and bloodshot ��� twinkling.  Humouring him, I smiled and glanced over my  shoulder at the chimney and saw it indeed appeared  to have burst open from the inside, right at the point  the old Enterprise oil stove hooked into it. Hunks of  brick were strewn about, the walls were smeared  with sooty fingerprints and there were even a few  drops of blood.  "The front door was unlocked," I said.  "Sorry about the carnage to the chimney," the  cane raised  fat man said. "Didn't know it was an oil stove.  Anyway, I came to talk to you about the New  Year...! understand you and the people you work  with are going to be unemployed. I was wondering  what you plan to do about it?"  "Well," I said. "We are talking about starting a  new paper..." I wasn't sure quite what I was dealing  with ��� an escaped mental patient, perhaps?  "Is there anyone, say, uh...looking for you right  now?" I enquired with a raised eyebrow. "Anyone I  could call, maybe?"  "No one who'd know me in my present guise,"  he said, taking a long pull and finishing his beer.  "But another pint would be nice. Got anything  darker?"  There was something familiar about him, something not quite tangible but at the same time quite  disconcerting. "I'm sorry, Mister, bul I really must  ask you to leave," I said. "To be honest, you're  making me a little nervous and I really don't want  to have to call the police."  "HO, HO, HO," he said.  "Ho, ho-boy," I though. This is is a live one.  I edged slowly toward the chimney rubble and,  stuart burnside  innocently, began sifting through it with my foot,  looking for the phone. My guest continued HQr  HO-HOing, seemingly quite pleased with himself.  Suddenly, from directly above us, there was a  loud thunder-like rumbling...the house began to  shake. I looked up wondering what the hell was  going on, then glanced toward the fat man who had  lurched to his feet, his beady-blues blazing toward  the ceiling.  "Rudolph," he bellowed. "Knock it off."  There was quiet from the roof.  "Sorry," the fat man said with an embarrassed  cough, "Dancer's going into heat and, well...boys  will be boys...  "Maybe it serves me right for buying Alberta  reindeer," he continued, plopping back into the  chair. "But they do come cheap, and I accept the  fact that I sometimes have to pull Rudolph's  chain."  "Who Ihe hell are you?" I demanded. "And what  are you doing here?" My furtive search for the  phone continued, a little more obvious, a Hide more  frantic.  "I just stopped by to remind you the news is, in  all aspects, as good as it could be," the fat man said.  "And while I'm here I'd like to point out that I may  not be as malevolent as you seem to think me. In  some regards, I could in fact prove to be the best  friend you have."  "Uh, let me get you that beer," I said, thinking to  humour him further until help arrived.  "Never mind," he said with a belch. "I really  should be going. Tune is a factor in all things and  I've got a lot of work ahead of me."  I nodded my understanding.  "Speaking of which," said the fat man, "Do you  know what time it is?"  I turned to look at the clock.  "Six minutes past seven," I said.  When I turned back he was gone, as were his  boots from beside the chair. From above tliere was  again the thunder-like nimble, a loud lightning-like  crack of a whip, and some muffled angry curses.  Then the sound of sleigh bells fading off to nothing.  Looking around the room in disbelief I saw  walls washed clean of soot, a phone returned to iu  cradle and a chimney with every brick back in  place.  Tacked to the chimney, however, was a soot-  smudged, sweaty wool sock with a hole, much like  the one the gap-toothed fat man with the pink face  and whiskers had been wearing.  In the sock was a copy of the Coast's newest  full-distribution newspaper.  "In light of your new endeavor, it's the best gift  you could possibly have," read a note scrawled in a  spidery hand. "Merry Christmas."  COAST^NEWS  Subscription Rales tor  tht Coast Hews oe lhe Weekendee.  Canada: I .p.�� ��� S11 ��� SM'.

Competitive Prices  886-7033  Roadway? No way  In response to Mr. Shuttle-  worth's letter regarding the  "Vision 2020" proposal. Here  are a few reasons why it is not  "prudent lo assume" that bridges  will "probably" be built across  Bowen and Keats Islands, connecting the Lower Mainland to  the Sunshine Coasl:  1. Bowen and Keats Islands  (and all the islands in Howe  Sound and the Southern Strait of  Georgia with Ihe exception of  Indian Reserves) are wilhin the  Islands Trust.  In 1974 (the same year lhal  the Agricultural Land Reserve  was created), the Islands Trust  Act established Ihe Islands Trust  as a conservation-oriented land-  use planning agency wilh a special legislated mandate - "The  object ol the Trust is lo preserve  and protect the Ttust Area and  ils unique amenilies and environment for the benefit of the  residents of the Trust Area and  Ihe Province generally, in cooperation with municipalities,  Improvement districts, other  persons and organizations and  ihe government of Ihe  Province."  Even 20 years ago it was  obvious that the highly valued  and very fragile environment of  the islands could be irreversibly  damaged by unrestrained development pressures arising from  their proximity to major urban  centres.  Today, Ihe Islands Trust is an  autonomous islander-elected  local government with full community planning and land-use  regulatory authority comparable  to lhat of a regional district,  under the Municipal Act.  2. The Islands Trust Council  is required by the Islands Trust  Act to adopt and implement a  Trust Policy Statement applicable to the whole Trust Area. In  June 1994, following approval  by the Minister of Municipal  Affairs, the Islands Trust Policy  Statement (Islands Trust Council Bylaw No. 17) was reconsidered and finally adopted by  Trust Council. The goals and  policies contained in the Policy  Statement reflect values and  concerns for the future of Ihe  Trust Area expressed by the  public; and Trust Council's  belief lhat not only Ihis generation, but also future generations  should have the continued  opportunity to enjoy the environment and amenities of these  nationally-significant islands.  Communities wilhin the  islands of Ihe Trust Area are slill  predominantly rural in character  and contrast markedly wilh surrounding urban areas. Pari V of  lhe Islands Trust Policy Statement outlines policies designed  lo sustain island character and  communities.  With regard to Ihe provision  of transportation and utilities to  Ihe islands: 5.3.2 "It is Trust  Council's Policy thai no island  in Ihe Trust Area should be connected lo Vancouver Island, the  mainland or to any other island  by a bridge or tunnel, notwithstanding the existing bridge  between North and South Pen-  Jet Islands."  .1. In 1992 the Islands Trust  signed an historic Letter of  Agreement with the Ministry of  Transportation and Highways  (ihe agency that has jurisdiction  over roads and bridges in this  province), The Agreement  establishes an "ongoing consul-  tative process to foster common  understanding" between Ihe two  agencies and officially recognizes that Island "road standards  have been lowered in response  to the Trust objective to main-  lain the Rural character of the  Islands and in recognition of the  size of the Islands and Iheir  unique character and the need  for a gentler approach in harmony with the land."  4. Bowen and Keats (and  Gambier) each have Iheir own  island-specific Official Community Plans. While I won't speak  for Bowen Islanders regarding  the content of their OCP (which  is currently being reviewed), I  will comment on the Keats  Island Plan. This plan was  drawn up in consultation with  Keats Islanders and has been in  existence since 1977. The primary Communily Goal for  Keats Island is: "The preservation of the existing amenities of  the island for all people and Ihe  protection of these amenities  form damage by any future  development."  5. In order for a roadway to  be built to link a bridge between  Ihe Sunshine Coasl and ecologically-significant Salmon Rock  (a conversation area) at the  western lip of Keals Island, a  three kilometre righl-of-way  would have lo be expropriated  from Ihe owners of the 231 acre  properly which encompasses the  entire western one third of the  island. The owner of the properly is the Convention of Baplisl  Churches of BC (a registered  charitable society with over  4,000 members).  The convention has operated  a non-profit summer camp at the  historic, original farmsite on the  properly for almost 70 years.  Keats Camps is attended by  thousands of children from  urban areas every year (including many school children from  lhe Sunshine Coast). Any proposed righl-of-way would have  to pass directly through Ihe  campsite, which is recognized as  a scenic/heritage area. I would  suggest lhat such an expropriation would be highly unlikely.  By all means the Sunshine  Coast communities should go  ahead and "considei the long  term needs" of their area. However, to automatically just  assume the Islands will  inevitably be sacrificed as mere  stepping stones to accommodate  insatiable growth and development in surrounding areas is  completely arrogant. Imagine,  spending zillions of tax dollars  destroying Ihe Islands forever,  just to provide a "convenient  commuter corridor" for impatient mainland motorists.  Far from being "visionary",  such a concept reflects a value  structure which is out-moded,  short-sighted and ill-informed.

"The whole staff supports Ihe program,"  said teacher Rob Paish, who with aide  Tammy Sageon, administers lhe program  from Ihe club house, a spare classroom.  "And the merchants and services in the lown  heartily participate with their donations and  friendly interest," said Rob and added, "Parents, loo, are greatly involved."  To promote self-esteem and a sense of  responsibility, the club can provide students  who ask to be club members with a sense of  purpose and a feeling of belonging. Incentives come in the form of awards called  kudos which can, for example, be exchanged  once enough are accumulated, for gift certificates to use in the sponsoring stores. To earn  kudos the students must show a helpful  awareness of themselves as individuals as  well as of others. Before any kudos can be  awarded in any one day a student must prepare a journal guided by headings like "How  I feel", and "Deed", and for seniors grades,  "Goal." The bulletin board provided some  journal samples: I feel good because my  grandma is staying for Hallowe'en; I feel mad  because my mom messed up my journal; my  goal is to be good on the field trip; my deed  is to be nice to all the kids in the class; my  deed is to help my mom with the baby.  A tremendous community effort. Keep it  up until this awareness of self and others just  comes naturally.  Government trip  My friend Norman Wells from the Territories is on his way to Patagonia. A federal  grant is paying for it although Norman complains he has to fly economy class. "I'm  probably the only government person who  has to do lhat," he said. When asked the purpose of Ihe trip he said it was to investigate  sheep ranching.  "Why? There are no domestic food animals in our Territories. We've heard they  make mutton pemmican that we could  exchange Arctic char for."  Surely there's some sensible reason for  this jaunt?  "Well, we are the same latitude and the  equator is our common ground."  Actually we all think Norman is just  heading down there for their summer.

Recently I was shopping  at Ihe general store and noticed  lhe festive Christmas decorations  so carefully arranged. Twinkling  lights, bright coloured candles,  appealing baskets and a sense of  warmth amid all the organization.  1 suddenly was struck with a different vision almost one year ago  - shelves slacked, boxes  unpacked, several trips from the  old general store and many decisions where lo pul what. Anxiety,  excitement and anticipation was  everywhere as everyone waited  for opening day.  In the meantime store number  three silently vanished only to  remain a precious memory in Ihe  history of Ihe Creek. Only a week  short of Ihe first anniversary it  hardly seems possible this is the  same place. Congratulations lo Ihe  staff and wishes for many more  years to come.  Amid the Christmas decoration  gazing and memory lapse, I was  interrupted and asked if I would  draw the name for the monthly  video contest. I agreed. Dr. Ed  Bernstein and family are the lucky  winners for December.  Library news  Getting a pet for Christmas?  We question your timing, but not  your aim. Do remember that your  library can help you decide whal  to choose and how to care for and  train your new family member.  Besides our many books lo do  with dogs, we would mention  Pers and Pet Care by Hilary  connoisuer's garden  The Annual Roberts Creek Christmas Craft Fair drew shoppers in Saturday and Sunday, running overtime to keep up with the  demand fnr the locally made and distributed goods geared for Christmas.

In the junior section we recommend Let's Find oul Aboul Dogs  and Kids' Cal Book published by  Owl Magazine, which will surely  please all ages.  Remember, giving your pet the  proper care pays big dividends for  both owner and pet. Help the kids  learn to do il right.

Diallo has been  hailed as "a rising star" in the  music publication Talking Drum.  It has been suggested he is west to  join the likes of Youssou N'dour  and Alpha Blondy. Diallo is a  young Guinean (West African)  star who now lives in Vancouver.  His original compositions address  social issues, celebrate common  joys, as well as present the  essence of the human spirit.  Bafing, Dlallo's six member  band mix the modern with tradition. The drum sel, bass and lead  guitars combine with the  Doundoun, Djembe, Balafon, and  Chekerey for a sound that is irresistibly upbeat.

Obtain your $14  tickets at the Creek General Store,  Coast Books in Gibsons or  Talewind Books in Sechelt. Do  not miss this high spirited High  Life Production.  by Rose Nicholson  1 readily admit to two addictions -  reading and gardening. When either one  strikes I am perfectly capable of ignoring  just about everything else. But when the  two come at once I'm completely lost.  This happy situation came about recently  when I discovered Des Kennedy's new  book Crazy About Gardening.  Most garden writers dispense useful  information in an explicit and sober way.  Kennedy, on Ihe other hand, though his  information is impeccable, inserts it in  painless doses while proceeding to make  us laugh helplessly at our idiosyncrasies.  "Most gardeners are nuts" he declares  in the first sentence and it isn't long before  you agree with him as you begin to recognize yourself in the strange and wonderful  foibles he hilariously describes.  We who garden on the Coast know  we pay for the privilege of having one of  the best gardening climates in the world  by having soil that avoids being classi  fied as a desert only by our little publicized though undeniable rainfall. Wc can  empathize with Kennedy who gardens  on nearby Denman Island. The glaciers  that left behind our bare rocks and  mountains of sand and gravel must have  at one time covered his garden, too. We  can groan in sympathy as he talks about  abandoning a shovel in favour of a "grub  hoe, a great heavy weapon of a lool  resembling an outsized Visigoth's battle  axe beaten into a ploughshare."  While condescending to admire those  on the Prairies who garden "where nothing stands between Ihem and the North  Pole bul a couple of barb-wire fences" he  reminds West Coasters who brag about  their winter gardens that the roses and  Daphne odora that bloom in the bleak  days of January and February are in reality sodden lumps of rain-soaked petals.  Every page or Iwo triggers appreciative laughter as Kennedy points up the  humour in some of our most fiercely  held gardening dogmas.  And, like Ihe rest of us, he finally  admits thai the reason for his addiction  to gardening, the thing that keeps him  coming back in spite of the endless hard  labour and unpredictability, is an aesthetic, almost spiritual one.  As he describes the exquisite beauty  always there for Ihe observant gardener,  "you hang suspended, outside yourself,  ecstatic, it's why, in the end, I suppose,  you're still crazy about gardening."

Christmas stuff
Wednesday, Dec. 7 is the
absolute deadline for reservations for the Welcome Beach
Christmas dinner and celebration on Saturday, Dec. 10.
The numbers to call are Barbara 885-9860 or Joyce 885-
5946.
A reminder to members of
the Halfmoon Bay hospital auxiliary that the December meeting takes place at a luuch at the
Wharf Restaurant next Monday,
Dec. 12, meeting and installation of officers al 11 and lunch
at noon.
You are welcome to bring a
friend lo share lunch with this
busy group. Give Edna a call at
885-7129 if you would like to
attend.
There is great excitement at
Halfmoon Bay school these
days as rehearsals continue for
the big annual Christmas show
in which all the students have
the chance to participate.
The theme this year is Charlie's Magic Christmas and the
show will be at the new full size
gym at the school on Thursday,
Dec. 15 at 7 pm.
There will be an afternoon
rehearsal on that day. The staff
and kids always present a great
show which can be enjoyed by
the whole neighbourhood.
Have a heart
The fundraising campaign for
the Heart and Stroke Foundation
does not take place until February but it is necessary to make
plans and to have canvassers
lined up well ahead of time.
Last year they were unable to
canvas all of Halfmoon Bay due
to a shortage of helpers.
This is an unusual situation
for this area, since people are
generally very willing to give
help where it is needed.
Therefore they are asking
anyone who has had the benefit
of heart research, or knows
someone who has, or who has
lost a family member or friend
to heart disease or stroke, to
assist in the 1995 campaign.
The maximum time asked
would be a mere three hours, so
please don't let Halfmoon Bay
down this year. Call either
Marie Steel at 885-2156 or Fay
Hansen. They really need your
help.
Cat gifts
Things have been written
about the strange 'gifts' that cats
bring home for approval, but
one of the strangest was recently
when one of our cats proudly
brought a bat into the house.
We came home at night to
see this thing flapping around
on the floor, alive but terrified
of the light.
We managed to pick it up in
a towel and headed it out to
freedom. What an experience
for the poor thing, but it seemed
to be okay as it flew off into the
night.

If you have little ones on your Christmas list
and are shopping for toys, you should know that
there are a few that can cause damage to their eyes.
Last year more than 12,000 people ended up in
hospital emergency rooms for toy related eye
injuries, according to the US Consumer Product
Safety Commission.
Children do not always play safely and it is
important to note that even if a manufacturer calls
a toy safe or soft, it can still cause eye injuries if it
strikes at a fast speed or at the right spot.
Some toys to watch for:
• Colour-ups fashion cosmetics (ages 8 and up)
includes a mascara brush which can severely
scratch the eye.
• Air pressure super soaker rocket (ages 8 and
up) uses water pressure to shoot a blunt missile up
to 60 metres at speeds as high as 80 kph.
•Aqua Sling water balloon slingshot: shoots
water balloons up to 100 metres.
This toy has already caused one known case of
harbour highlights
blindness.
• Zooka Force Commandos (ages 4 and up) a 10
cm tall commando that fires a semi-hard foam
arrow off its chest up to 13 metres.
• Snailiens Supersonic Shell Fighters (ages 5
and up) shoots hard plastic balls with rough edges,

MMAiaMlMi Coast News, December 5,1994  11  World beat funk comes  back to deck the hall  by Sandra Smith  Forget the cold rainy nights of  the past, a heat wave is in the  forecast for Roberts Creek this  weekend.  West African musicians Alpha  Yaya Diallo and his band Bating  plan to steam up the community  hall with the energy of their  world beat funk on Saturday,  Dec. 10.  Anyone who plans to remain  seated through the evening's performance better bring some rope  to tie themselves to a chair. Based  on past experience, all souls will  be moved by the strong drumbeat  ryhthms of the music.  "We call it world beat music  but it's African music and it's very  funky stuff," Diallo said in an  interview from his home in Vancouver.  Opening the party will be local  band Endangered Species whose  tropical beat and "Santana-type"  style is sure to start temperatures  rising on the dance floor.  Diallo is an African multi-  instrumentalist from Guinea who  has played the rhythms of his  country since he began playing  guitar at the age of 12.  He and his five-member band,  Bafing, fuse the traditional  accoustic sounds of their homelands with modem funk, jazz and  afro beats.  Their music pours from a  melange of modem drum sets and  centennial singers  electric guitars, hand-drums and  wooden xylophones such as the  Doundoun, Djembe, Balafon and  Chekerey.  The unique instruments create  the songs of the African homeland sung by Diallo in the mother  tongues of Fula, Susu, Malinke as  well as English and French, Dial-  lo's first language.  "We sing about our culture,  what's going on in Africa, keeping people together, about ending  the fighting," he said.  "That's our message, to unify  tho people in Africa. And we like  to sing about our background, our  history, the things that happened  centuries ago, like some stories of  the kings in Africa."  Diallo was well-known in  Guinea and toured extensively  throughout West Africa before  joining the European band, Fata-  la, in the late 1980s.  After a world tour which  brought the band to the Toronto  Jazz Festival and the Vancouver  Folk Festival, Diallo stayed  behind and has been residing,  recording and performing since.  This past summer has been  busy for the band which performed at the Mariposa Festival  in Toronto, the Jasper Folk Festival and the Harrison Hot Springs  Festival of the Arts.  Other engagements included  concerts in Banff and a recent  benefit concert with Valdy for  1   iktt���j    m��� ������-___\  ___\                                  Hr     \  \\  Bk>,. 1  Ww '  IW  ���l/l  Man Tlnw Hl-Ft  0030  0750  1.0  16.1  1325     10.6  1810     13.9  Fri   Tlm�� Ht-Ft  0335  1050  1750  2255  6.1  15.5  8.2  11.1  Tum   Tlnw Ht-Ft  0115  0B40  1425  1910  1.8  16.1  10.2  13.2  at   Tlmt Ht-Ft  0435 7,7  1135 15.2  1850      7.2  Wed   Tlnw Ht-Ft  0200  0920  1530  2010  3.0  15.9  9.7  12.3  Sun   Tlnw Ht-Ft  0040  0540  1215  1940  14.9  6.3  REFERENCE: Point Atkinson  Pacific Standard Tlma  For Skookumchuk Narrows ���  1 hr 40 mln. plus 5 mln. for each ft.

They sing  mostly a capella; without accompaniment.  The concert, to be sung on Friday, Dec. 16 at  7:30 pm at St. John's United Church, will contain a  mass by Palestrina, some Christmas carols and a  setting of the Twelve Days of Christmas.  The Choralations.which most people on the  Coast know to be a small group of children who  sing beautifully, will also sing a selection of seasonal pieces which promise to be very entertaining.  Josephine Hammond and Shelley Dillon (nee  Cross) will round out the program with solos and at  least one duet, accompanied by Tom Kershaw. All  three are perennial favourites on the Coast and well  known for their superb artistry.  Tickets are available from Talewind Books in  Sechelt, Sayward Books in Gibsons, or choir members.

Oliver  Stone called it "a masterpiece  right up there with Last Tango  in Paris." The Ontario Film  Review Board -si banned it,  then eventually came to recognize, "Its point is neither titilla-  tion nor prudence, but rather a  serious dissection of a serious  issue by a serious artist."  In the director's notes Ryu  Murakami tells us "Please feel  the sophisticated decadence of  Japan hiding deep behind or  outside the film's frame without  stealing attention away from the  eccentricity on the surface of  this film. One of the characters  says "It's Japan that's wealthy,  but it's wealth without pride."  Acknowledging this fact, the  possibility of where we can go  and how we can survive is  shown in Tokyo Decadence."  He won the 1992 Best Director award in Italy's Taormina  Film Festival for this adaptation  from his best selling novel  Topaz. Set th a drugged out,  demi-monde, S&M chic, dream-  scape Tokyo; this film is certain  to upset and offend some viewers. A controversial, not for the  squeamish exercise in humiliation endured or inflicted, each  rendered by the director with a  ritualized precision worthy of  the tea ceremony.  A corrosive social critique,  offering a powerful, profoundly  unsettling portrait of contemporary Japanese society which has  incited considerable debate.  This film is the last in the Cinematheque Tour of Fall '94 showing on Wednesday, Dec. 7 at the  Arts Centre in Sechelt, doors  open for refreshments at 7:30,  screening begins at 8 pm sharp.

B.C 883-2630   :  UVE BAIT ��� TACKLE SHOP  CONVENIENCE STORE  LAWYER  883-9525  by Darah Hansen  This is not an art show.  The work currently on display at the Sunshine Coast Aits  Centre does little to provoke  thought on a level beyond what  is immediately, physically presented to the viewer.  Yet the overall effect of the  show, entitled Cream ofthe  Coasl, an an invitational crafts  display, is pleasing, sometimes  humorous, and interesting.  "The idea was to make available what we knew existed on  the Coast in very high quality  crafts," arts centre curator Larry  Westlake said.  Though uncomfortable with  the distinction, Westlake said  "arts" and "crafts" are separately  defined by a variety of factors  including skill difference, nature  of direction and limitation of  medium. "There's a difference  in emphasis," Westlake said.  "Most crafts can't be justified at  all unless the skill involved is at  a very high level of practice...  [they] are complete in themselves."  The crafts ��� numbering  around 80 ��� represent a wide  range of local talent from quilting to pottery to needlepoint to  wood carving. The works were  chosen for display after they  were recommended by several  people in the area to Westlake.  And because the show was  organized with the help of so  many other people, Westlake  Taking interest In the work of Coast artists at the Sunahine Coast Arte Centre in Sechelt during an  open house for the Cream of the Coatt showing. Joel Johnstone photo  said opening the boxes to hang  the work was like "Christmas  morning."  "Some of the works in the  show are even stronger than I  expected," he said, giving special credit to the quilt work.  "It deserves a lot of atten  tion," he said.  It should be noted many of  the craft work, including the delicate quilting, has been done by  local women.  Dismissed through the centuries as simple "hobbies" for  idle female hands, the skill level  and care involved in mastering  many of the crafts are finally  receiving the recognition they  deserve in a public forum.  Cream of the Coast will be  on display at the Sunshine Coast  Arts Centre in Sechelt until  December 18.  To Advertise  in this Directory  phone Janice  at 885-3930  Michael C.

Probably the most successful  pieces of the show are water-  colours by Roger Paul Ver-  meulen.  Vermeulen's paintings suggest a pleasing warmth.  Several landscapes depict  scenes in rural France: the pattern of afternoon light falling on  a wall, moss covering a stone  bridge or sun shining through a  willow on the side of the road.  Closer to home, there are a  variety of West Coast locales  depicted.  Perhaps best, however, are  Vermeulen's paintings of the  local shoreline around Roberts  Creek and Gibsons which evoke  an accurate aense of what it's  like at the line between the forest  and the strait on overcast afternoon.  From the sailboat on the horizon and the gray puffs of sky to  the old pilings, shore grasses and  mud in the foreground, Vermeulen's paintings suggest plenty of atmosphere.  Several figure paintings by  the same artist are equally successful.  In a sitting female nude, we  are given the pink tones of fair  skin, the curve of a collar bone,  slope of-the shoulders and gestures of a resting hand.  Vermeulen creates a lyrical  interest in the way a particular  body stands at ease or lies resting, in the length of a spine or the  shape of a foot - in relatively few  lines combined with patches of  light and shadow.  Lyall Nanson, the other  watercolour artist in the show,  offers a wide variety of subject  matter in his paintings, from a  Mexican selling hats with colourful bandanas, to sailboats at  anchor, the Vancouver skyline  and a tugboat moving through  the mist.  Technically, it's hard to argue  with Nanson's work, which displays a seamless mastery of  colour.  In Passage, a canoer glides  over green water of a sheltered  cove. Nanson captures the light  sloping down from the edge of  the rock face above, the glow of  the arbutus bark, the cool of the  shade and brilliance of the sun  against the shore.  At the same time, some other  pieces in the show - like a pair of  children's bikes on a porch or  boats against a mauve evening  sunset - have a rather generic  quality, and lack a strong emotional impact or particular sense  of place.  Rounding out the 'Scapes  show are ceramic pieces by the  artist Laurie Holland which combine questions of utility with a  symbolic, ceremonial feeling in  pieces like Winged Vessel. In  Celebration Um, the dark apace  inside the piece is as much a part  of the work as the shape of the  container and the stripes of paint  on its outer surface.

Mike O'Keeffe photo  To bowl or  not to bowl...  that is the question  by Mike O'Keeffe  Lawn bowling will be Ihe  nexl craze on Ihe Sunshine  Coast, if a group of Sechelt  enthusiasts have their way.  A newly-formed club is hoping to maximize the use of the  new bowling greens at the  Sechelt Golf and Country Club.  The greens were completed this  year, but will sit empty during  the rainy season, said founding  member Harry Lomax of  Sechelt.  In the meantime, the club  plans to boost its membership in  preparation for spring. Lomax  said the seven founding members have acquired a provincial  club charter as well as about  nine sets of bowls, and score  boards.  An open meeting is planned  for spring, and anyone with  even a remote interest in lawn  bowling is urged to attend, said  Lomax. He noted that only club  members will be allowed to use  the greens.  The reason, he said, is that  lhe club will provide necessary  training in bowling and in caring for the delicate greens. The  grass on a bowling green is even  shorter than that of a putting  green, and players must know  what they are doing before stepping onto the green, said  Lomax.  "If people went on the greens  with no knowledge of how to  act or use them, the greens  would be inoperable in a matter  of months."  Lomax said more than 100  people have already shown  interest in joining the club, and  he expects lhe numbers to grow.  Although the sport is complex  and at times physically demanding, he said "anyone can learn to  play."  "A lot of people will say this  is a game for old folks," said  Lomax, "but some of us old dot-  ters could take the young fellows out and show them a thing  or two."  He said the sport attracts men  and women of all ages, from  high-school students to senior  citizens.  "There's an 87-year-old lady  in Richmond whom I won't play  unless I absolutely have to,"  said Lomax. "People who are  really good, can almost make  the bowls talk."  Lawn bowling is similar to  curling in that a full team  includes a lead, second, third,  and skip. To begin, the lead  bowls the "jack" down .the  green, and the others try to put  their bowls as close to the jack  as possible.  The bowls are actually biased  spheres, designed to roll in  curved motions. The trick is to  get the bowl past blocks,  bowled by opposing players.  Lomax said lawn bowling is  one of Canada's most popular  sports, with about 50 established  clubs in B.C. alone. Most clubs  have about 200 members, he  said.  In addition to physical exercise, lawn bowling provides  many social advantages, said  Lomax.  Teams often travel from club  to club across Canada and  around the world. He noted that  the sport is popular internationally, and particularly in Commonwealth nations.  Lomax said the golf club has  "done a fantastic job with the  greens in Sechelt." The 122-  square-foot area includes eight  greens, which are each 120 feet  in length. An average game runs  from two to three hours, he said.  Anyone wishing to join the  club can call Lomax at 885-  2502 or club secretary Joan  Dexter at 885-2599.  Old Timers hockey  tournament a success  If the success of a tournamenl  could be measured on the results  of the final day's games, then  the 1994 edition of the Suncoast  Breakers Old Timers hockey  tournament was a resounding  success.  With two days and 18 games  to settle the final positions for  lhe six "finals" to be held on the  Sunday, the host club Breakers  were hoping for exactly what  they gol. Six super games, all  competitive and all with their  own bits of tension and drama.  The host club Breakers  "Dream Team" played the early  final against the Pitt Meadows  Jorgies Jets, and were buzzing  around the visitors' net with a  minute to go to try to equalize a  3 to 2 game. But good hosts they  were, losing an excellent early  morning match. Good games  from Dale Benner and Rod Bodmer nearly saved the day.  In the next "final", it was the  younger Breakers who went  head to head with Ihe Maple  Ridge "Goodtime Kings", win  ning 7 to 4 in a game that wasn't  decided until one shift late in the  game where Rory Walker and  Claude Charleton both chipped  in a goal to make Ihe difference.  The final "final" was a classic as well.  The previously undefeated  Commuters had their hands full  with the Brew Crew, who took  the game right down to the final  wire, hanging on for a tremendous 3 to 2 30-plus win of the  Canfor Trophy.  It was a lale goal by Trent  Dixon and solid play by Gord  Clayton and goalie Mike Mar-  leau that was the difference in  this game. But player of the  game was the Brew Crew's  goalie Greg Smith who was outstanding and kept the Sunday  Nite boys close.  Outstanding player in the  tournament came from the Ol'  Blues and was smooth skating  forward L. Vandergraaf, while  top goalie was Suncoast Breakers 'rookie' netminder Doug  Young.
