Roxanne Gregoty photo  Coast loggers take part in  CORE protest at legislature  Kv Rnvannf f^ri>oiirv onnH    reese.    c��/��tinn     nf    th��� "Thpu off* afraid fnr thpir i  by Roxanne Gregory  More than 100 Sunshine  Coast loggers and their families  joined the thousands of forestry  workers who descended on the  legislature in Victoria for an  anti-CORE rally in Victoria on  March 21.  Contingents from as far away  as the Queen Charlotte Islands  mingled with 1,000 members of  the Vancouver local of the International Woodworkers of America (IWA), as more than 20,000  people from across BC gathered  to protest the growing loss of forest lands to the logging industry.  The provincial government's  Commission on Resources and  Environmenl (CORE) proposes  that the Vancouver Island forest  land base available for logging  be reduced by 21 per cent.  Sechelt Creek contractor Ken  Snedden said he was impressed  with the number of people who  attended the rally with their families.  "People are standing up for  what they really believe. They  are worried about their jobs, their  futures. The crowd represents a  good cross section of Ihe  province."  Speakers from indusiry, local  government and unions spoke on  the negative impact the implementation the CORE report  would bring to island communities, including losses in provincial tax revenues.  Attorney General Colin  Gabelman, whoa* North Island  riding will lose hundreds of jobs  if the CORE report is implemented, listened as thousands of his  constituents heckled Premier  Mike Harcourt when he and  labour leader Ken Georgetti  made an unscheduled appearance  to speak to the crowd.  Harcourt promised the end of  logging for export and the  renewal of value-added manufacturing for the Japanese market,  saying "transition strategies"  would be unveiled this week.  Snedden said wasn't sure the  curtailment of log exports was  the best plan for the industry.  "These people are really  afraid," said Liberal opposition  leader Gordon Campbell as he  surveyed the crowd.  "They are afraid for their jobs,  their families, and their futures.  They feel cut off. This process  must be community driven, and  that hasn't happened. The NDP  haven't looked at the economic  and social impact of the CORE  proposal. They're not listening lo  local government. A reduction of  12 per cent is plenty."  s *,,jCampbell said a Libgral government would ensure community input, and he described Ihe  CORE report as a "rush job,  without a job strategy."  Local IWA leader Murray  Cantelon, who also attended the  rally, said he became disillusioned with the CORE process in  Ihe early stages, and compared  the development of the report to  trying to change the wheels on a  logging truck that was racing  down hill.  "CORE was originally supposed to include the social, and  economic impacts, as well as the  environmental ones," Cantelon  said. Instead the government has  "just focused on environmental  concerns.  turn to page 2  Tet Alliance charges material  left out of watershed report  by Darah Hansen and Ian Cobb  Important recommendations  concerning the Chapman and  Gray Creek Watershed IWMP  have been ignored, a Tetrahedron Alliance member says.  Dan Bouman of the Alliance  said he's concerned that recommendations made hy three government hydrologists were  "deleted" from the final draft  copy of the Integrated Watershed Management Plan.  "My information is they  made specific recommendations  that are not in ihere." Bouman  said. And the information compiled by the three hydrologists is  "extremely" important, he said.  "They have the hard data (in  the report) but iheir recommendations aren't in the cumulative  effects analysis."  Bouman said Ihe hydrologists' report shows that human  activity in the Chapman and  Gray Creek Watersheds has  caused over 85 per cent of Ihe  landslide activity since 1946.  Appendix Five of Ihe IWMP  study draft, released in February,  notes in ils landslide inventory  lhal in the Chapman Creek  Basin, 38 nalural landslides have  occurred in that lime, compared  to 212 man-made slides.  Of the 212 slides, 50 are  directly related to roads and 162  are related to clearcut logging.  In Gray Creek, the landslide  inventory table notes 100 per  cent of all landslides have  occurred because of either roads  or logging. A total of seven  slides have occurred from roads  and 30 from logging.  These totals indicate that  human activity in the watershed  is creating too much of an  impact and shouldn't be ignored,  Bouman said.  However, one Sunshine Coast  Regional District area director is  skeptical about the figures compiled by the hydrologists.  On March 24, while debating  the wording of an advertisement  in which the board's opposition  to the final IWMP draft is to be  stated, Jane Reid of Pender Harbour said she objected to phrases  like "250 slides have occurred  since 1946" and "the qualily of  water is decreasing" because  they implied logging was the  chief cause of all the problems  in the two watersheds.  The ad. designed lo petition  the public to respond to Ihe  IWMP committee, was called  "biased" and "one-sided" by  Reid and Gibsons mayor Eric  Small.  While Small worried the ad  did nol give Ihe public sufficient  opportunity to disagree with Ihe  regional board's position, Reid  was opposed to statements she  said gave a negative slant to logging. Elphinstone director Jim  Gurney spoke out against Reid's  comments: "A blind man can see  what's causing (the environmental degradation). It's logging-  related."  Brett McGillivray, director  for Roberts Creek, said the purpose of the disputed ad was to  attract more public commentary  to the IWMP committee.  He criticized the public hearing on the document, held Feb.  28, calling it a "sham" ��� one  that did not give the public (he  opportunity to have its concerns  fully addressed.  McGillivray said the SCRD  was hoping to push the IWMP  committee into holding a second  public forum to discuss the issue  further.  "We're hoping to push this  discussion further so that this  (IWMP draft) does not become  the final document," he said.  Another hearing would be  good news, Bouman said.  "The critical issue is, 'Has it  (watershed) been harmed by logging or hasn't il?' And if it has,  let's stop kidding ourselves and  recognize the facts," he said.  The SCRD voted against the  draft IWMP last month.  Budget  Impacts  by Don Anderson, Ian Cobb and Darah Hansen  Money increased for land claims  Money for Aboriginal affairs is up significantly in the new NDP  budget.  A sizeable increase has been injected into the ministry equalling  $32.2 million, or 6.8 per cent.  According lo ministry staff, the money is to be put towards the  province's escalating treaty negotiation demands.  Earlier this month, Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Cashore met  with the members of the Sechelt Indian Band council and promised  to further discussions on their outstanding land claims.  At that meeting, Cashore decline to clarify whether the Sechell  band was a government priority in having its claims heard before  other bands.  Anglers, hunters to pay more  The cost of catching fish and shooting wild game will increase as  the provincial government attempts to dedicate more funding toward  habitat conservation.  Freshwater fishermen and hunters can expect an increase in  licence fees of between 25 and 47 per cent, with the basic annual  licence fee for BC residents increasing by $4 to $23. The cost of  hunting black bear and white-tail and black-tail deer, popular on the  Sunshine Coast, has increased from $3 to $15.  The increases are expected to raise an additional $2 million a  year for habitat conservation.  "I think the surcharge is money well spent," said conservation  officer Doug Pierce. "It seems like a lot of our tax dollars are being  swallowed up in Victoria and we never see where they go."  The Habitat Conservation Fund was established in 1981 and has  provided roughly $21 million to fund more than 1,200 projects to  improve fish and wildlife habitats in BC. The fund is primarily supported by surcharges on angling, hunting, trapping and guiding  licences.  Pierce said the money is often used to purchase lands and preserve wildlife, particularly the winter ranges of moose and deer,  which he believes is "critical for their survival."  Changes to angling licences include:  ��� A new one-day licence, which is aimed at encouraging more  families and others to sample fishing in BC. The implementation of  the licence came as a recommendation from the public.  . ��� The six-day licence has been extended to eight days to meet Ihe  needs of tourists on one-week fishing trips. And supplementary  licences will now be shown as stamps on the basic licence rather  than as separate licences.  The provincial government will allow people to fish for free during Fish Awareness Days April 1-15. No licence will be required for  the first two weeks of the month, although anglers will be expected  to abide by the 1993-94 angling regulations.  Tax breaks for some home buyers  Thousands of homeowners in BC have been given a $30 million  tax break in the new budget but lhat will mean very little to developers and first time home buyers.  At least that is the opinion of realtor Stan Anderson, an outspoken critic of government and its housing policy.  "They haven't priorized the need to provide housing for people.  They don't care, it's not part of their mandate," said Anderson, following the provincial government's budget announcement lasl  week.  "Fourth-time buyers can hardly stay in the market anymore,  never mind first-timers."  The tax break, expected to cost the government $10 million a  year, will be covered in the raising of the level of property values at  which the homeowner grant kicks in to $450,000 from $400,000.  Further breaks will come from the elimination of the property-  purchase tax for first-time buyers of homes valued at up to $250,000  in the Lower Mainland and $200,000 in the remainder of the  province.  Most homeowners whose homes are valued between $450,000  and $524,500 receive a grant of $470, while seniors, veterans and  the handicapped receive a $745 grant.  "I think anybody who can afford a $400,000 to $500,000 home  has absolutely no business getting a rebate from the government,''  said Anderson.  "They should have a couple of businessmen looking al (the budget) instead of a bunch of politicians."  He said the "single greatest cost" in building a subdivision is the  inclusion of development cost charges (DCC), recently adopted as a  bylaw by the District of Sechelt.  The bylaw implements a tax schedule for developers to cover the  municipality's costs of installing sewers and doing road work stemming from further development.  Anderson believes intervention by Ihe local governments of  Sechelt and Gibsons has furthered Ihe difficulty in providing affordable housing and increased Ihe cost of building subdivisions.  "An $80,000 lot today could be a $50,000 lot if we did nol have  to do all the things thai wc have to do," Anderson said.  "From start to finish il lakes 18 months to get a subdivision  going. Countries come and go quicker than il takes to get a subdivision in place in the District of Sechelt and Town of Gibsons."  School construction money allocated  The provincial government's new budget promises to pump $470  million inlo building new schools in BC, using borrowed money.  But that figure comes as no surprise to the local school district,  said secretary-treasurer Tim Anderson.  Anderson said the funding to be allocated to the construction of  additional schools has been known by districts for some time. Whit  isn't yet known is which of Ihe province's 75 school districts will  receive ihe money.  School District 46 is hoping lo win al least part of lhat money for  the construction of three middle schools that will house students in  grades six-nine. As well, the district is seeking ministerial funding to  expand pre-existing schools.  Turn to page 2  ������������ Coast News, March 28, 1994  Dr. J.C.

Cantelon characterized loggers as "the true environmentalists, because without forest lands  to harvest, we don't have livelihoods."  Cantelon said he hopes that  Harcourt is listening to the  demonstrators. "We are drawing  the line now. Working people  who have always supported the  NDP are feeling betrayed. There  is still time for the government to  say, '(Commission head  Stephen) Owen made a mistake.'  "The Sunshine Coast has  always been isolated, but everywhere we look, we're losing the  forestry land base. We're threatened here, too, with Ihe protection strategy. You can't develop  value-added industry without a  sustained land base."  Cantelon said the rally was  supported by business, local government and privale companies.  About one third of the workers at  the legislature were unionized.

The District of Sechell will  receive $301,630 this year,  $70,062 of which will come in  the form of a basic grant, with  the remaining $231,568 as a general grant.  "I had already anticipated that  we would have gotten it but you  never know," said Sechelt  administrator Art Lew. "It is certainly good when you do get that  because when you don't have it,  that means our tax rates have to  go up."  The money is directed into  general revenues and applied  toward various needs, which  could include anything from  roads and sewers to general  expenses.  If the municipality had not  received the grant, "somehow we  would have to adjust our spending to make up for that," Lew  said.  A municipal general grant  base has been established and is  adjusted according to the economy and spending decisions of  government.  "The premier promised a  three-year tax freeze and by  keeping municipal grants up, our  government is helping local governments hold the line on property taxes," said municipal affairs  minister Darlene Marzari.  For its part, the Town of Gibsons will receive a total of  $230,081 in grant allocations for  the upcoming fiscal year. The  funding consists of a $78,306  basic grant, a $146,076 general  grant and a $5,697 supplemental  grant.    .  Town administrator Dan Legg  and Mayor Eric Small were not  available for comment.  Setting It straight  Bypass In the works  So far the Gibsons Bypass  hasn't been passed over in the  recently released 1994 provincial  budget.  With $300-million handed  over to the Ministry of Highways  and Transportation by Finance  Minister Elizabeth Cull March  22, there's a good chance work  will begin on phase two of the  Gibsons Bypass in the upcoming  months.  "They're crunching the figures right now and we won't  know for sure for two to three  weeks but Gibsons is one of the  highest on the priority list," said  ministry projects manager Leagh  Martell. "I'm hoping for it as  much as you (Sunshine Coast  residents) are," he said.  Meanwhile, it's business as  usual at the Sunshine Coast ministry office ��� all except for the  departure of area manager Art  Popp, who is retiring after 29  years of service with the ministry.  Acting area manager Marion  Blank said she didn't know  exactly what the recently  released budget means, either.  And other than the Gibsons  Bypass project, there are no  major projects slated for the Sunshine Coast that she knows of for  the upcoming fiscal year, starting  around the second or third week  of April.  "There's been some talk of  funds being committed to the  second phase of the bypass but I  wouldn't take lhal as gospel,"  she said, noting the dispersion of  budgetary funds throughout the  ministry has to take place first.  "Locally, I suppose our functions carry on," she said, noting  that money from the 1993 budget  In a story in March 24th edition of the Coast News Weekender,  the name of the operator of the Shell service station in lower Gibsons  was misspelled.

The on-going work al Lower  Road and Highway 101, now  into ils fourth week, is part of a  Sunshine Coast Regional District  sewer line upgrade project and  the resulting delays to traffic  aren't expected to last much  longer.  Debt rising: Wilson  Powell River-Sunshine Coast  MLA Gordon Wilson says the ���  NDP government's new budget  masks an increase in provincial  debt.  The budget shows the provincial debt has risen by $10.2 billion over the last five years, $6  billion of which is direct provincial government debt, he said last  week. Wilson said while Ihe government speaks of deficit reduction, it has pushed over $2 billion  into Crown corporations and  government agencies for this fiscal year and will spend just under  $1 billion ($981 million) servicing the debt in this year alone, an  annual rate of growth in debt servicing of 16.6 per cent.  "Our debt is rising by over $1  billion a year and this government has done nothing to prevent  that from continuing," said Wilson.  "The people of B.C. will not  be fooled by this minister's  efforts to focus only on annual  spending by government when  the real story in this budget is a  massive increase in long-term  debt."  Wilson said his party, the Progressive Democratic Alliance,  will formally respond in the  provincial legislature where  party members will outline the  directions they feel the government should be taking.  -Good  Evening  BUFFET EVERY  SUNDAY EVENING  FROM 5:00 PM  $9.95  Our dinner menu also available  Fabulous Lunch  & Dinner Specials  Mon ��� Fn 7am ��� 2 pm.

Joel Johnstone pholo  Coast loses marathon to the Island  by Darah Hansen  After three years on the Sunshine Coast, Ihe Save the Georgia Strait Alliance is moving ils  annual marathon across the  Strait to Vancouver Island.  And Ihe new crossing route  for the marathon, announced by  alliance members last week, is  actually not a crossing at all.  This year's route will take  paddlers and swimmers in a loop  from the mouth of Englishman  River, just south of Parksville on  Vancouver Island, over to the tip  of Lasqueti Island and back  again.  The distance i.s 16 miles ���  exactly the same as the original  Sechelt to Nanaimo route, said  alliance executive director Laurie MacBride.  "We felt it was time for a  change,"    said    MacBride,  explaining the reason for the  move.  ' "(don't think it was necessar  ily our intention to have it (the  marathon) in the same place  every single year."  MacBride said the alliance  also wanted a site that offered an  alternative, more  sheltered route in        case of bad weather.  That was not an  option in the  Sechelt to Nanaimo  run. Last year the  marathon was cancelled because of a ���������  fierce wind storm  which left many participants disappointed.  The alternate route this year  will likely run along the shore  line and can be used by novices  instead of the more challenging  route to Lasqueti.  The Parksville site, known as  the Parksville flats, was further  chosen by the alliance because  of its environmental-symbolism.  "We felt it was  time for a  change'  -Laurie MacBride  "We're going where there's  been a victory," said MacBride.  The flats were "rescued"  from development last year by a  group of local citizens who  fought and won    government protection of their  coastal ecosystem.  The flats had been  slated for development as a park  for recreational  vehicles.  ������������������        MacBride said  the organization  ��� which exists to bring public  awareness to the environmental  state of the Strait of Georgia ���  expects lo lose a few participants  this year.  Some athletes will not see the  new course as "appealing" as an  actual crossing, said MacBride,  particularly those "who are really into the challenge of the  crossing and the symbolism of  Ihe crossing."  But MacBride said the perks  ��� starting and ending in the  same spot and the inclusion of  an alternate, easier route ��� will  likely draw new participants.  "The net (participation) rate  will probably be about the  same," since the new route is as  challenging as the former crossing, she said.  MacBride would not comment on entry fees for Ihis year's  event. "It's just too soon to tell,"  she said.  Lasl year, some participants  were angry over the $100-per-  person entry fee - more than  double the previous year's fees.  MacBride said the entry fee is  based on the price of putting the  marathon together, estimated in  1993 at $40,000.  Last year's fees were "realistic," she said. "It was not gouging. We did not make bundles on  the marathon."   ���  ������  & CHRYSLER  FIVE STAR SERVICE  *****  SKOOKUM NEW CAR  & TRUCK RENTALS  CALL MICHELLE  TODAY 886-3493  SKOOKUM CAR WASH  & DETAIL SHOP  THE WASH CARD IS HERE!

One traffic group RCMP will  be paying special attention to,  he said, is ferry traffic.  "There's a number of areas  where we try lo target ferry traffic," he said, listing Reed Road,  North Road and Port Mellon  Highway around Ihe Granthams  Landing area.  "They're 50 (kilometers an  hour) zones but on average,  most vehicles go over 60 KPH  or more."  McDonald refuted the notion  that police will be conducting a  "zero tolerance" campaign,  because "there's no such Ihing  as zero tolerance."  This anti-speeding campaign  is part of a province-wide initiative, the result of an alarming  increase in accidents over the  first two months of the year that  has auto insurance officials talking about increasing insurance  premiums.  Insurance Corporation of  British Columbia (ICBC)  reports 70 people have been  killed or injured in car accidents  in BC during the first two  months of 1994 ��� 19 per cent  more than during Ihe same period in 1993.  In addition, ICBC has  received 17,000 injury claims in  January and February, a 14-percent increase over last year.  ICBC president Bill McCourt  has said these accidents are, on  Ihe whole, more severe than last  year and because of this, insurance premiums may increase.  The accidents thai have  occurred thus far amount to  $70-million in pay-outs, or 24  per cent more than in 1993.  "If accidents increase, premiums will have to follow,"  McCourt said on March 24.  McCourt noted that speeding  and "reckless behavior on the  road" is as socially unacceptable  as drinking and driving.  etvat* mm At* m  Serving Mariners Since 1968  uccaneer  Marina & Resort Ltd.  ��� marine hardware ��� open 7 days a week 8 am-5 pm  1 marine ways to 36' ��� free u-launch boat ramp  > yard trailer haul-out service lolb" ��hull painting and power washing  PARTS  SECRET COVE  SALES  mmm  885-7888  Tune Up now for  Spring & Summer  SERVICE  me��mn_\__t_____\  IMWMflMX  mWml m/mt *J*t> 4DCW3W  mUr*e*a aiara arc accttaaHn  WW uwn ���**> *.WCT��W  ARXSg^p & CRAFT, Gift Shop,  WORKSHOPS  APR.L    50taJLE.

MMM  mem Coast News, March 28, 1994  opinion  Let the IWMP  chips fall where  they may  Allegations from the Tetrahedron Alliance that recommendations by provincial government hydrologists concerning  human activity in the Tetarahedron have been left out of the  draft Integrated Water Management Plan should be a matter of  concern to everyone on the Sunshine Coast. After all, just  about everybody here drinks the water ��� and that's about as  close lo home as you can get.  If critical recommendations from the hydrologists, whose  job it is to know and study water, are being withheld, we want  to know why.  Could the recommendations be any stronger lhan the data  from the hydrologists that was included in the draft plan? Il's  hard to see how, since the data indicates that human activity in  the Chapman and Gray Creek Watersheds has caused over 85  per cent of the landslide activity since 1946.  There does seem to be some sentiment within the Sunshine  Coast Regional District ��� primarily from director Jane Reid  and Gibsons Mayor Earl Basse ���that allowing such information to be made public constitutes a bias against logging. That  may be. And the bias may ot may not be justified.  However, concealing from the public information which has  the potential to be vital to the issue of long-term water management is not the way to stimulate open debate on the issue or to  allay people's fears.  Since the Integrated Water Management Plan is supposed to  be about the quality of water, shouldn't the information be  made public ��� and let the chips fall where they may?  Sunshine Coast  drivers need speed  crackdown  We applaud the speeding crackdown planned by the Sunshine Coast RCMP. While no statistics specific to the Coast are  available at this time, we do believe lhat speed is often a factor  in the frequent accidents which occur along the Coast highway.  Some residents are likely to protest such a measure, arguing  that the crackdown unfairly takes aim at locals. Unfortunately,  it is more likely for locals to be at fault when it comes to speed;  familiarity with the terrain often breeds contempt for speed  limit signs.  ��� . There is, of course, some question whether such crackdowns  do anything more than inconvenience everybody for the period  Ihey are operating. People seem to have short memories, so  when the crackdown is over, they simply revert to their old  habits ��� and speeds.  However, particular hazards do exist near certain settlement  points along the Coast highway: the stretch from the ferry to  Port Mellon; from the ferry to Gibsons; from Sunnycrest Mall  all the way to the Lower Road and past; the stretch from Wilson Creek all the way into Sechelt, to name but a few.  What's bad about most of the named stretches is that pedestrian and bicycle traffic often make cars travelling above the  speed limits doubly dangerous.  And it's so easy to speed in some of these stretches...it kind  of just creeps up on you.  We caution you against speeding on the Coast roadways, not  just during the crackdown planned for the coming week, but  year round.  Don't slow down just out of fear of fines; slow down out of  consideration for the other humans your speeding could maim  or kill.  If they don't thank you for it, we will. Godspeed, but no  more than that.  Anticipating a Big  Mac  I finally feel compelled to  write a letter of protest myself  regarding the opposition lo the  arrival of McDonald's and other  such franchises to our 'little  community.'  I have lived in this area for  41 years and it galls me that  these relatively new residents  come here and tell us what we  need or don't need. I personally  like to have the choice of where  I want to spend my money. You  always know what to expect  from each McDonald's, A&W,  Dairy Queen or Kentucky Fried  Chicken outlet.  As far as McDonald's only  taking from the community and  not giving anything back ��� oh,  what nonsense. Lee Mason,  have you not heard of Ronald  McDonald House?  I think you should wake up  and smell the coffee. Three hundred signatures of protest ��� big  deal!  If you and others like don't  like progress here, move on.  You don't seem lo realize that if  you thousands of new residents  had not moved here, all of these  franchises would not have followed. The fast food outlets  arrival here is the direct result of  you all moving to the Coast and  I do lhank you for it.  I will look forward lo the day  the first Big Mac rolls off Ihe  assembly line.  Pat Nelson  Gibsons  Players in a can  Okay. I know I shouldn't  smoke. It's bad for my health;  it's bad for other people's  health; it's a dirty habit! But I'm  addicted and I try to do it in a  private manner, i.e. in my own  home, and as an "old maid"  that's the only questionable  thing I do in my own home... or  anywhere else for that matter. I  also know that smoking is an  expensive habit.  And being a Scot by heritage,  I try to mitigate those costs as  much as 1 can by rolling my  own.  As a Scot and confirmed  comparative shopper, I happened to stumble upon some  interesting comparative pricing  information here on our beautiful Sunshine Coast. You see, I  bought some tobacco to feed my  habit after the federal government had reduced the tax by $5,  but to my surprise found that the  tax had not been taken off at this  local, store. They were still  charging the same price as  before.  Upon asking the management  why, they told me that although  they had lowered the tax on  ready-made cigarettes they had  decided not to do so on tins of  loose tobacco. In other words  they were just pocketing the $5  as a gift from the government.  This got my ire up and so I  decided to do a survey of Gibsons' and Sechelt's tinned  tobacco prices. The results may  surprise you.  Following is a list of prices  as of March 21 from outlets in  both Gibsons and Sechelt for a  200 gram tin of Players tobacco,  before GST.  IGA Plus, Sechell, $31.24;  IGA Plus, Gibsons, $31.24;  SuperValu, Gibsons, $31.24;  Pharmasave, Gibsons, $33.99;  Shop Easy, Sechelt, $36.49;  Claytons, Sechell, $36.94; Pharmasave, Sechelt, $38.10; Big  Mac's, Sechelt, $38.49; Pacifica  Pharmacy, Sechelt, don't carry.  It was also interesting to note  that Shop Easy in Sechell had  taken the $5 off as of March 3  letters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  interest.

VON IVO  and were charging $31.78, but I  was told by their slore that after  discussing this with Claytons,  they put their price back up  again and as of March 19 were  charging $36.49.  I checked with Revenue  Canada, Custom and Excise, just  to make sure that the $5 tax  reduction pertained to loose  tobacco as well as cigarettes and  they confirmed this.  Now, don't get me wrong. I  have nothing against any of the  stores and it is not illegal to do  what some of them are doing.  My beef is lhat they are getting a  rebate from Revenue Canada  which they are simply pocketing  if they haven't lowered their  prices.  If this windfall were to be  sent back to the federal government as a donation towards  health care, or better still, if the  $5 earned on each tin of tobacco  were to be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society, I wouldn't  mind.  But it isn't. And why are  these retail outlets only picking  on us "roll your owners" by  reducing the tax on 'ready-  mades' but not on tins? Discrimination?  There was a reason for the  federal tax reduction. If you will  recall it was to help reduce  smuggling, cross-border shopping and Ihe like. Looks to me  as though there is very fertile  ground on the Sunshine Coast  for such criminal activities.  After all, a difference of $7.25  per tin of tobacco is nothing to  be sneezed at.  Which reminds me, I wonder  if they reduced the tax on snuff?  NANCY A. MacLARTY  Sechelt  Half-time score with the Harcourt team in Victoria  Mike Harcourt and the gang in Victoria are into  the second half of their term in Victoria, folks. It's  just about two and a half years since the Socreds  self-destructed under Rita Johnson and the premier  won his way, affably but unexcitingly, to the  province's top spot.  It might now be useful to assess this NDP government, its achievements and its prospects.  Don't look here for the latest poll figures. I lefl  full-time journalism wilh a loathing for telephones  and I will neither conduct nor be a party to any  phone survey as long as I have Ihe strength left io  hang up a receiver. Anyone looking for scientific  assessment should look elsewhere. We fly by the  seat of our pants here.  Do you remember ihose heady days in 1991  when Harcourt appeared lo limp into power? Do  you remember the debate where Mikey and Rita  Johnson lore petulant strips off each other and the  Sunshine Coast's own Gordon Wilson, who had  picketed the CBC to be allowed lo participate,  blazed like a comet into the political firmament of  the province?  Ah well, Gordon has done what comets do, when  they don't crash into the sun. He has swooped off on  a path predestined long before he showed up among  the stars.  Rita has gone too ��� no surprises there. The only  surprise was that she ever got to replace the mighty  Zalm in the firsl place. One harbours a notion Grace  musings  McCarthy might just have been resilient enough to  give our Mike a better run for his money.  Grace has re-emerged now. of course, but it may  be loo late for her and for the Social Credit party of  British Columbia. For in the emergence of Gordon  Campbell as leader of her majesty's loyal opposition  in Victoria, the need for Social Credit as a focal  poinl for BC's powerful right wing in politics is  over.  Had ihe mystical and self-deluding Wilson kepi  control uf the Liberals, with his populist instincts  and NDP background, Social Credit would have  been revived by the bona fide right-wingers, sure as  shooting. But Campbell is a millionaire developer;  his boyish good looks mask a bona fide capitalist  captain and make him notably electable.  So at this halfway point in his term, Harcourt  would appear to have his work cut out for him if he  wants lo avoid the fate of his NDP predecessor  Davey Barrett ��� he of Ihe winner's charm and the  John burnside  loser's judgement ��� and hold the reins of power for  more than a single term. Campbell is going lo be a  formidable foe and this time the right wing is unlikely to be seriously split in opposition.  "Does it matter?" do I hear you wearily ask? Not  really, dear; the political campaign, when it comes,  will only interrupt the daytime soaps from America  for a day or two at most. It will be painful, but nothing you can't adjust lo in ihe very short term.  For those of you with vestigial interest in the real  world, I would suggest it still might matter a great  deal. I am not thrilled with Mike Harcourt, nor did I  expect to be. In the key areas of environment and  economy he has been forced to behave as much like  a Socred as he can.  Davey Barrett did the same 20 years ago during  his one term in power, faithfully aping the administrative techniques of old Wacky Bennett. Trouble  was, Barrett wasn't the fox old Bennett was and  didn't have a natural majority in the province.  Harcourt faces the same dilemma. This is a right-  wing province and any quasi-socialist can survive  only by pretending not to be. Hence the emphasis on  the balanced budget; hence the coy footsie with the  woods unions over clearcutting, and hence the  shameful use of welfare recipients lo show the  province how rough Mikey and the boys are.  Surely ihis business of having people line up on  the streets to collect welfare so that the government  can the better check the authenticity of their claims  is a page from the textbooks of the right wing thai  Harcourt could have honourably left alone.  If this blessed province is in financial trouble it is  not the fault of Ihe poorest among us. At a time,  throughout the western world, when the gap  between rich and poor is growing rapidly and Ihe  middle class is being forced out of existence, for a  government of humanitarian pretension to use the  economically disadvantaged as stepping stones to  political popularity is simply shameful.  And yet, what's to do? Generations of doctrinaire  right-wingers have led the province, fattening the  wallets of themselves and iheir friends by giving  away the birthright of us all. Politics, unsavoury  stew that it is, is ihe art of the possible and Harcourt's may be the most human face available to us  when this term ends.  It's not a satisfying conclusion, let alone an exciting one. On the other hand we know what tends to  happen to blazing comets, don't we?

I  thought Ihe panelists understood  and explained ihe current state  of racism quite clearly and  reminded the communily that  Ihe problem is everyone's  responsibility.  Some local viewers who  called in were focusing on the  issue of native land claims in an  effort to perhaps address their  discrimination in our communily. ll is clear lhat Ihe claim put  forward by the Sechelt Band  and other First Nations is very  disconcerting to Canadians. The  issues and implications of land  claims have nol been satisfactorily explained to both native and  non-nalive groups alike. Wilh  lack of accurate information,  rumours abound, fear is heightened and the natural reaction is  lo protect and lash oul.  The facts and legal precedents are quite straightforward.  If it were not, I doubt Ihe governments of Canada would discuss any so-called native land  claims. The facts are available  in many new publications available to all Canadians. These  facts spell out that the responsibility to provide this information  to Canadians is not the First  Nations'. We did not create the  problem, Canada did. If you  want to talk about taking  responsibility, perhaps it should  start with you, to make sure you  are given the reasons behind  why land claims are now on the  table.  The issue of compensation  seems to bear more attention  than the fact they are valid. If  you were deprived of the use of  something that you own, then  had to stand by and watch as  the reader's write  barbara j. joe, sechelt  another person used that property to gain something of value,  you would not hesitate to stand  up and take whatever legal  means at your disposal lo be  compensated.  No question, you would want  justice. You would expect to be  given whatever that person had  earned. What the land claims are  asking for is that justice. If the  claims were to be settled on current market value, the Canadian  public would have to pack up  and move back to Europe. What  the claims are based on is historical values based on 1800s values. Those are the rules of the  land-claim game. I doubt you  would settle for that in a law  suit.  True, the financial settlement  will come out of the taxpayers'  pocket. But you are already contributing to the revenue base of  native people, based on the rules  of the game set up by Canadian  law. What land-claim settlements would do is provide  native people with an economic  base that would generate revenue based on investments of  our own choice. Then we would  not have to go hat-in-hand to  your governments for funding  from revenues you have earned  from our properties.  The misconception that  native people do not pay tax  seems to be pushed to the forefront of any argument. The only  natives who are tax exempt on  sales or income tax are those  who are employed, or purchase  goods from, a company located  on Band properties. It does not  take a rocket scientist to figure  out that there are very few businesses on Band property and  those that are, hire very few, if  any, native people.  The majority of native people  who work in the non-native  community pay tax. Under our  self-government legislation, the  Band pays property tax to the  provincial government on  assessed values.  The argument that we use  highways and infrastructure  paid by Canadian taxpayers  should be brought to light. Why  is it that most highways and railways cut directly through native  properties? Early immigrants  thought they were pulling one  over on the native people again,  but their shortsightedness has  resulted in many opportunities  for native people to bring to Ihe  attention of the Canadian public  the injustice that is still outstanding.  What you should realize is  that native people now know  how to play the game. You can  accept it and work with us as we  plan new investments thai will  provide jobs for all residents of  the Coast. Or you can fight it  and continue to perpetuate  racism and prejudice in our  community. The choice is yours.  Go ahead and sink another  ship, but remember to direct  your new customers to McDonald's for lunch.  The American constitution  was based on the principles of  life, liberty and the pursuit of  happiness. Those principles  were based on the teachings and  way of life of the Iroquois confederacy, documented by Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. European immigrants  were seeking to escape the  oppression and class stratification of their homelands and  were amazed lo find such a  social structure actually existed.  It is true, we had wars and look  slaves but at the same time,  Europeans were burning people  at the slake.  The myth that native people  were somehow saved by the  coming of the immigrants and  should be grateful will be corrected when you open your eyes  and teach your children the true  history of this country. Then we  can get on with eliminating  racism and learning from each  other.  One final note is on the comment by a local media representative who asked for Band  Council meetings to be open to  the public. The Sechelt Band  has hosted many open forums  for the local community and  will continue to do so. As our  council meets on personal band  issues such as housing and personnel and private enterprise  developments. I believe it is  inappropriate for outside journalists to attend, just as you  would not be invited to a shareholder meeting of a large corporation.

The Gibsons Legion has  donated its hall for the kids' use.  Along with the volunteers lhat  (sometimes) show up, Ihis dart  night has become a great success  with an average of 17 teenagers  showing up every Wednesday  night.  These are our children that  normally may nol have a place  they want lo go or something  constructive to do when they gel  there.  The benefits of Ihis darl club  are enormous, not only for the  kids but also their parents and  local business.  By giving the teenagers a  place to go, it keeps Ihem off Ihe  streets, gives peace of mind to  parents and hopefully reduces  vandalism.  in Ihis controlled atmosphere  they are socializing wilh their  peers in a competitive manner.  They are also learning discipline, math skills and self-  esteem.  It also means they get to participate in out-of-town matches  and tournaments, such as the  annual BC Amateur Provincial  Youth Darts.

DEBBIE JOHNSON  Gibsons  A dialogue strategy  My fellow woodworkers'  reaction to Stephen Owen's  Vancouver Island CORE report  is puzzling. Why support the  present forest industry configuration which has caused this  land-use conflict in many previous jurisdictions by clearcutting  both jobs and forests? In any  case CORE'S Integrated  Resource Management approach  to land-use decision-making will  soon be superseded by scientific  questioning of planning frameworks by the Clayoquol Sound  Scientific Panel.  Think of evolving pasl IRM.  Consider the following story  told to me by an old boomman:  Once upon a lime in the not-  too-distant past, God talked to  women through Iheir husbands.  Although input in this manage  ment system was perfect, for  some reason the system evolved  into inputs from parents, relatives and interested parties; a  code of proper management  conduct was developed.  An old boomman wrote a letter to the king asking "What will  be the next management system?"  He didn't get a reply but  learned later that a junior secretary from Aboriginal Affairs  was put in charge of a 'Dialogue  Strategy' to combat suffragettes  from Europe.  W.R.

The program currently has 18  adults working in the communily, doing everything from food  preparation to pottery, at local  businesses like Sechelt's Lighthouse Pub, SCRAPS recycling  cenlre, Country Charmers store,  Sole Feetures, Jack and Jill Preschool and Rockwood Lodge.  "It's very empowering for the  adults lo be working, to be independent," Lisa Carter, Ihe program manager said.  The program's mission is "to  facilitate meaningful employment al a fair wage which pro-  moles communily Inclusion of  persons with a mental handicap."  The program is funded through  the Ministry of Social Services  and works in tandem with other  local organizations such as the  Sunshine Coast Vocational  Training Program, the school  boards and the association's Life  Skills Program. Most of the participant referrals come through  the ministry.  With that in mind, the association's staff spends a lot of time  wilh each of the adults, getting to  know their interests, strengths  and skills. A vocational profile is  developed and a resume1 is drafted. The staff then finds ways to  enhance each participant's marketable skills through education  and training.  "We look at the adults' lives,  find out where they see themselves going. We don'l impose  any limits on them," Carter said.  "For example, if a person shows  an interest and aptitude for computers, then we enroll them in a  Shelley McCuaig adds the finishing touches to a figurine at  Country Charmers In Sechelt. Christine Bodt pholo  course, find a placement for  work experience and then look  toward a paying job for Ihem."  Of Ihe 18 program participants, 11 have paid employment,  with Ihe rest gaining experience  in volunteer positions.  Local businesses have been  fairly accepting of both the program and the participants. Most  prospective employees are surprised to hear Ihe participants  have a resume, have other work  experience, and lhat most have  graduated from high school.  "We find we still have to educate people a lot about what  mentally handicapped people are  capable of." Carter said that  some people confuse mentally  handicapped with mental illness,  but the two are completely different.  "A lot of jobs have developed  out of the fact lhat companies  have higher-up people doing  simple, lime-consuming jobs  along with their more challenging duties. It becomes cost-effective for the company to hire one  of our participants and free up a  higher-up person," Carter said.  Participants ate accompanied  by a program worker when they  first begin a job. The worker  slays, helping the participant, for  as long as the employer and the  individual feel is necessary.  Once the worker leaves the job  site, Ihe participant's performance is continually monitored  by the association.  "When an employer agrees to  take on a person, we guarantee  lhat the job will be done. The  worker will do the job if they  have to," Carter said.  Despite Ihe guarantee, few  workers have ever had to finish a  job for a participant. "There's  always small problems, bul we  can solve those. On the whole,  the program's really successful."  Mark Coombs, manager at the  Lighthouse Pub, agrees. Cleo  McClarty came lo work in the  restaurant's kitchen almost two  years ago. She works about 20  hours a week, doing dish-washing and food preparation.  McClarty said she was happy  working at the pub, enjoyed herself and liked earning money.  "She's very efficient, and gets  along well with the rest of the  staff," Coombs said.  The only complaint Coombs  has is about the paperwork and  forms he has to fill out for the  government because Ihe Ministry  of Social Services subsidizes  some of the handicapped adults'  pay for businesses involved in  the Supportive Employment program.  Country Charmers, a store in  Sechelt, has employed four  adults as part of the program  since last June. According to  owner Marty Clarke, it has been  a great success.  "We've had our problems, but  nothing we couldn't get around."  Her employees make items  such as T-shirts and decals, and  Clarke leaches them how to run a  small business and deal with the  public. The adults also learn  ceramics and in turn leach  ceramics to children and the  elderly.  Carter said that a committee  made up of local businesses  advises the program and the staff  about what the community  needs, and how the program can  fill those needs.  "There's also a job club for  the adults, where they can learn  about work ethics, problem-solve  and practice interview skills."  Integrating mentally disabled into community  People with mental disabilities will take part in an upcoming  ' speciil workshop detailing what'  happens when they try to become y  part of the community.  On April 14 and 15 the Sunshine Association for Community Living and the Community  Forum Co-ordinating Committee  is sponsoring a workshop called  george In glbsons  Principles in Action: A Process  for Community Building.

Only in Victoria: the military  parade to herald the arrival of the  lieutenant governor to open the  legislative session; the legislature  itself in debate and other capers  in the chamber; cyclists gathered  en masse in front of Ihe legislative building to protest harassment by motor cans on the roads  and ironically lone cyclists threatening the safety of foot walkers  on the city's sidewalks; the Royal  Museum and free day admission  thereto; the Spirit of British  Columbia which can carry up to  470 cars but has no moving staircase and only very small elevator  cages; restaurants easily equalled  by our own here on the Coast; a  strange concert.  The 15-gun salute for the lieutenant governor sent echoes rumbling around the harbour and also  sent a small dog in panic flight  from the legislative grounds, his  human companion trailing after  him. Small dog found in a nearby  underground parking garage and  returned to the legislative  grounds. Small dog missed seeing small lieutenant governor  toiling up red carpeted marble  steps.  What seemed to be both elderly and student people struggling  with a brisk breeze to hold aloft a  Clayoquot banner. No rabble rush  to break into the chamber Ihis  year. A hundred military stood in  the way, bayonets fixed. Only a  symbolic presence, you understand.

But afler a second look I realized it was only snowing in  Roberts Creek. Snow in the  Creek? Snow in mid-March?  Impossible! This is the Sunshine  Coast. But then on the other  hand anything is possible in the  nation of Roberts Creek.

Among the non-ficlion selections, Ihe biography of Grace  Woodsworth Maclnnis by S. P.  Lewis will be of great local  interest.  Also, you won't want to miss  Blood, Tears and Folly by the  very popular Len Deighlon.  The fiction list includes some  very big names indeed, wilh  books by Iris Murdoch, Barbara  Vine (Ruth Rendell in her other  mode), Herman Wouk and  Michael Crichton topping the  list.  There is a particularly fine  Canadian collection Ihis month.  Included are Michael Ignatieff's  Scar Tissue, which was shortlisted for the Booker, and Laurence Cough's latest Vancouver  thriller, Killers, which is set at  the Vancouver Aquarium.    ,  Special  Olympics  bowls into  action  The Sunshine Coast has been  officially recognized by the BC  Association of Special  Olympics.  And last weekend, the new  BC Association of Special  Olympics/Sunshine Coast Chapter staged its inaugural recreational evenl with a round of  bowling at Gibsons Lanes.  "If the bowling gets going we  will be able to go away for tournaments...there are all sorts of  opportunities we will open for  people," said Jack Collins, chair  of the local chapter.  "I'm hoping thai some of our  people can take part in the BC  summer and winter games in the  normal divisions."  Roughly 16 adults and five  children with menial handicaps  participated in the bowling  evenl, Ihe firsl of five lo be held  over successive weekends.  It was the first evenl sponsored by ihe Special Olympics  chapter, organized in response lo  the need for recreational opportunities on the Coast for mentally  handicapped residents.  "The whole poinl of il is lo  provide ongoing recreation for  these people because the parents  won't be able to do il," said  Collins.  The chapter is also considering softball, swimming and track  and field as possible events. If  the bowling alley is available for  use nexl year, the Coast may see  the establishment of a Special  Olympics bowling league.  But to ensure more events are  organized, Collins said the group  is going to need more volunteers.  "There are all sorts of activities they sponsor bul we can't  rush in and do them all al once.  We have lo organize some volunteers," he said.  Residents interested in volunteering Iheir time to Special  Olympics should contact Collins  at 885-0446.  community  Coast News, March 28, 1994  ^^indS  Earth Day raffle  Earth Day is fast approaching  and raffle tickets are now on  sale.

Most of us have forgotten  how work-intensive small children are, haven't we? Looking  after our two granddaughters,  ages three and four and a half,  for 10 days while Mom and Dad  cruised the Mexican Riviera was  a real challenge.  We racked our brains for  things to do and ways to entertain ihem. We coloured, painted,  dressed and undressed dolls, read  lo them, sang songs and  answered a million questions.  We explored the beach, the  creek, the duck pond, playgrounds and parks. They wenl  swimming, shopping and  watched their favourite videos  and every nighl they crashed into  bed, tired out by another day  spent with grandma and grandpa.  Wc in turn luxuriated in the  peace and quiel and even stayed  up until 11 pm.

Pre-regis-  tration is a must and may be  done by calling 885-9367.  This coming weekend is Easter when we can expect, weather  permitting, a huge influx of visi  tors to our area. Many part-time  residents use this time to open up  their cabins for the season and  fishermen yield to the urge to  wet their lines. Even though the  snow which greeted us last Tuesday morning was a surprise,  surely spring is on the way.  Late sailings  It was good news to read last  week that BC Ferries are finally  going to add a late sailing to the  summer schedule; however it  would be nice to have it every  day rather than just Fridays, Sundays and holiday Mondays. How  often does one want to go to  town in the middle of the week  to attend a function or just spend  time with friends and family?  Having to break away early in  order to calch Ihe 9:15 ferry  home can be a bit of a pain.  In our day...  If you were born before 1945,  you hit the scene when McDonald's, instant coffee, boil-in-a-  bag and hamburger helper were  unheard of. Five-and-dime stores  were where you bought goods  that were five and 10 cents, ice  cream cones were a nickel and,  in some stores, they even had the  side-by-side cone. For a nickel  you could ride the street car; the  North Vancouver ferry wasn't  much more; make a phone call or  buy enough stamps to mail one  letter and two postcards. You  could buy a Chevy for $600, but  who could afford one? A pity loo  because gas was only 11 cents a  gallon.  In our day, cigarette-smoking  was fashionable, grass was  mowed, coke was a drink and pot  was something you cooked in.  Rock music was a grandma's lullaby and AIDS were helpers in  Ihe principal's office. In 1940,  made in Japan meant junk and  the term 'making out' referred to  how you did on your exams.  We were certainly nol before  the difference between Ihe sexes  was discovered, but we were  surely before the sex change; we  made do with what we had. And  we were the lasl generation that  was so dumb as to think you  needed a husband to have a baby.  No wonder we are so confused and there is such a generation gap today. Or is there? But  we survived and what better reason to celebrate?  by Deanna Lueder, 885-73(5  I made nectar and we put out  the hummingbird feeder in mid-  March.

Several matters crucial to all  residents will be up for discussion including the formation of  a Neighbourhood Watch group  to try to deal with the increase  in crime in the area which will  be addressed by the police  members.  Mr. Caldwell will have many  interesting things to say about  the emergency response policy  on the Coast and what we, as  citizens should know about surviving such catastrophes as  earthquakes and how we can all  help in being prepared for such  possibilities.  Memories  The family and friends of the  late Ellen Maxwell gathered at  the home of daughter Alice  Mackay in the Square Bay area  to pay tribule to the memory of  a fine lady who had reached the  great age of 101 before she  passed away at Totem Lodge.  Mrs. Maxwell was much  admired and respected by all  who knew her.  She had been blind for the  last 25 years bul had managed  to live in her own home in  Burnaby and took care of herself right up until the past few  years.  Always considered to be 'the  life of the party,' she will be  missed by family and friends.  Going home  As of April I your local  columnist will be off to Bonnie  Scotland for three weeks to visit  wilh sister and relatives. I  thought I would pass this along  to any of you who would like to  send a message to Ronnie Dunn,  since I will be seeing her while  I'm there.  I know she would be pleased  to hear from any of her Sunshine Coasl friends.  Welcome Beach's Sl. Patrick's  Day celebration was a resounding success with Len  Headde belting out a few tunes.

The Harbour  Spook's curse is all fixed up and  if I keep on beating out this column and if I don't get an unexpected raise in between, I should  have Ihe damage paid for by  about the second or third week  in July.  But as the old saying goes:  "It still beats farming." Talking  about farming, our firsl field of  baby carrots is already up.  They should be ready for  bunching about Ihe first of June.  That is six weeks earlier than the  date in my first paragraph. By  the way, my neighbour has  already lots of cukes and tomatoes for sale; you should go by  and get some.

Dave and Bobbi may be new  to Ihe area but the family has  heen here a long time.  Real old-timers may recall  Dave's grandparents, Jack and  Pansy Howitt. Pansy's father,  John West, was one of the original settlers over at Weslmere on  Nelson Island.  Jack fished here in the Gary  Point V. He pioneered a chilled  brine system around I960 bul  found it does nol work well for  ling cod.  Egmonsters of more recent  vintage can congratulate John  and Mary West, Greg Howitt, or  May Silvey on their relatives'  return lo these parts.  We're glad to hear Mr. Hill is  back in good health. He would  like to thank Ted Lee and Dennis Gamble, good neighbours  who called the ambulance Friday and helped him until it  arrived, and Susan Lee who  drove him home later that day.  If you are going to break  your leg do it right; go lo Thailand and fall off an elephant,  says Buddy Cook. Also back  from Thailand but intact are  Greg Howitt, Barb Ellison and a  month ago, Bob Grendillo.  Meanwhile Gaye Beardmore  and Ray Calhoun are still in  Mexico and Lynn Vaughan is  packing for a dream holiday in  Europe. Bon voyage.  Critters  Ron Kushner had his ups and  downs teaching his young cat,  Skidder, to come out of trees.  After he rescued her from the  same tree twice, Ron topped the  tree; then she went up a different  one.  Finally Ron got a sore toe  and gave up climbing, but after  a long lime Skidder got down  anyway. If she'd kept going up  and not coming down, he could  have changed her name to  Taxes.  A wood duck pair spent three  mornings this week at a pool on  Maple Road. I hope they breed  nearby; wood ducks are among  the most beautiful birds in BC.  Improvements  The Marlins put three truck-  loads of cement into their new  retaining walls, which are  intended to hold a big water  lank as well as keeping the shore  in place.  Ruby Lake Restaurant looks  belter than ever after a face lift.  The siding was stripped off and  changed to natural wood.  The waler board meets Tuesday, March 29.

They were actually bound for  Vancouver Bay and a cross-cultural conference with members  of the Sechelt Band. Way lo go.  The school yard is again  swarming wilh kids during  spring break.

The Rockwood Centre's Children's Fair, held on Wednesday  and Thursday of last week, that's  where.  The annual event attracted  scores of children-toting parents,  grandparents and friends.  Throughout the cenlre, volunteers set up booths and areas  where kids could try their hand at  a wide variety of activities.  Snacks and lunch were offered in  Heritage House.  Volunteer Gail Sangster surveyed the crowd and said, "Gold-  panning seems to be the most  popular Ihing this year. Last year  it was the sucker trees."  Gibsons resident Robin Reid  brought her granddaughter  Nicole, visiting from Vancouver  for the week, to the Children's  Fair. "It's a great idea, Nicole's  having a lot of fun," she said as  the young |<irl$nilfc an elaborate  crown at the Creation Station.  Rollande Drinkwater, who  brought her three children,  agreed. "It's great for the kids,  Deborah Petula hands out a prize to a young winner at the Rockwood Children's Fair duck pond.  The Wednesday and Thursday all-day annual event featured entertainment, young fashion, fun and  games, raffles with prizes donated by local businesses, and lots of room to play.    Joel Johnstone pholo  gives them something to do during the break."  Singer Wendy Harford, the  Coasl Academy of Dance, and a  karate demonstration provided  entertainment and music. A  clown made balloon sculptures.   ,  Filetla Fish, a children's entertainer from Vancouver, performed at 1 pm on both days,  thrilling the crowd with her  antics on her unicycle in her one-  woman circus show.  One popular "graffitti" room  featured a wall covered with  paper where kids could paint,  scribble, doodle and draw to their  heart's content. Another booth,  , t\,t\ Qie* ji^tajiqn, off��e^,  everything from wrapping paper  to tinsel to bows to ribbons for  children to make their own hats,.  crowns and other headgear.

Tills is the second year for the popular event        Joel Johnstone photo  Over 100 people take part in dart tourney  A total of 106 darts enthusiasts (53 teams) converged on the  Sechelt Indian Band Hall March  19 to take pari in the Sharky  Louie Memorial Darts Tournament.  The tourney, with a variety of  prizes available, also helped  raised money for the Canadian  Heart and Stroke Foundation.  With prizes up for grabs,  thanks to numerous Sechelt merchants and public houses, $705  was raised for the foundation,  said tourney organizer Karen  Hudson.  "It turned out really well,"  she said.  A first-place purse of $500  was grabbed by the Sechelt/Gibsons twosome of Alan Louie and  Tim Weatherby, while the second-place $250 prize was garnered by Powell River's Ken  Warman and Jeff Tyrell.  Third- and fourth-place $100  prizes were earned by Mark  Dove and Rock Gibb of Gibsons  and Gordie Ross and Jerry Wilson of Gibsons.  Sechelt dartsman Arnold  Hudson tapped in three triple-  twenties (180 points) to earn a  perfect score and $30 and the  high man of the day was Bill  Perlstom of Sechelt, whose 152  points earned him $40; the high  woman, with 174 points, was  Roberts Creek Rangers tripped up a few but didn't stop the steady offensive play of the Sechelt Hawks Thursday in Ihe lirst of a best-of-flve  final playoff for the Men's Commercial League. The Hawks won 5-3. Game two is Monday, March 28 at 8 pm. Joel Johnstone pholo  Gibsons shooters bag championship medals  Gibsons resident Allan Harding retained his title as junior  champion in Ihe BC Airgun  Championships in Richmond  March 19-20.  Harding stood tall among a  field of 50 shooters (aged 12-19)  and finished his three allotted  shoots with an aggregate score of  550 oul of 600.  Winning the junior championship for the second straight  year didn't come as much of a  surprise to the 18-year-old shooter. When asked how it felt to  repeat as champ, he modestly  replied, "the field wasn't all that  good, so...." Harding, who began  shooting at the insistence of his  brother, David, has been shooting  air pistols at the the Gibsons  Wildlife Club on Highway 101  for two and a half years.  He wasn't Ihe only Gibsons  shooter to bring a gold medal  home from the competition, as  junior shooting team coach Karl  Haerthe's daughter Kristen won  the under-11 category.  Sister   Katrina   narrowly  missed the bronze medal in the  junior ladies' class by only a few  points. Ryan Kangas shot a personal best in the tourney and  brought a silver medal home in  the junior class.

"At the same time, all of our  grants from various levels of  government have been frozen for  four years but our budgets have  grown."  The budget for the festival  has grown considerably in the  on the arts beat  past four years from $153,000 to  the current level of $275,000.  If the organization was  included in the GVRD casino  gaming license area, it would  hold one or two nights of casino  gaming off the Coast, either in  Richmond, Burnaby, North Vancouver or Vancouver.  Keller estimates that would  mean an additional $20,000 or  more over those two nights.  "Well, $20,000 would help on  our budget. We're always hanging in there," she said. "It would  make such a difference to us,"  In fact, the festival is operating with a deficit and fundraising  programs continue to take a lot of  energy to organize.  The organization is awaiting  the release of the Great Canadian  Literary Cookbook ��� a publication intended to enhance the festival's fundraising efforts. The  festival will also hold a "literary  golf tournament" on July 23 with  part of the proceeds going toward  local literacy programs.  To date, the BC Gaming  Commission has rejected all  applications made by organizations from the Coast, and it  doesn't seem likely it will make  an exception for the festival.  "I realize that taking the proceeds of gambling to do what we  do is nol the nicest thing in the  world. If there was another way  to do it, we'd find it," Keller said.

If you are trying to sell your  home in a market where you can't  get the price you want, should you  consider holding on and renting it  until market conditions improve?  Before you put your "for rent"  in the Coast News classifieds, il is a  good idea to consider the issue  Miy. Over the long term property  values have always increased; if  you do not have a specific purpose  for the equity dollars in your  home, treating it as a revenue  property is probably a good  investment. In British Columbia all  rentals are governed by the  "Residential Tenancy Act of B.C.  1984, as amended" and all rights of  both the landlord and tenant are  spelled oul in the act; lx? sure you  know what il saysl  When the markei does not  reach tlte level you want, selling a  tenant-occupied home can lie  tricky and you should he aware ot  some of ihe downsides before you  become a landlord. You tan never  be sure that the nice, clean cut  people who wanl to renl your  place are not inlo toga parlies or  aggravated landlord abuse. When it  is time lo sell, the condition of  your home may not reflect the  pride of ownership that it did  when you occupied it. Tenants  could reasonably want to limit the  access to Realtors and potential  buyers for your house ��� which ihey  have now come lo think of as their  own.  The final consideration should  involve an accountant who can  inform you in regard lo capital  gains taxes and the financial  implications of turning your  primary residence into an income-  producing property.

The film is an intensely dramatic record of,qnj cgjipj^'s  struggle with thp tortures of withdrawal from drug addiction. It  probes the fundamentals of Iheir  dependency on each other. From  the tension between the two characters arises a unique insight into  the social and psychological  complexities that make up the  environment of the heroin addict.  This is a timely piece, well  suited for release againsl the  backdrop of increasing drug  awareness. Although H treats the  issue in a poetic sense, it does not  attempt to glamorize drugs.  Rather, it's a head-on view of the  struggle to withdraw. The audience senses the violent and  painful eruptions the two characters must experience as iheir reality becomes painfully sharp in an  effort to rehabilitate themselves.  H will show at the Arts Centre  on March 30 at 6 pm, $5.50 at  the door. Coffee and treats will  be available when the doors open  at 7:30.

This time Wilson is accused  of refusing to make support payments to his ex-wife, Elizabeth  (Liz) Wilson, as specified under  the couple's divorce agreement.  Because of that, Liz Wilson  says she can no longer afford  the mortgage on her four-acre  Pender Harbour home and has  been forced to put it up for sale.  But her ex-husband says her  statements are "just absolutely,  categorically false."  In an interview Thursday  (March 24), Wilson admitted he  did not make the required  $1,000 maintenance payment lo  his ex-wife due on March 15,  but added he can't afford the  payments because his bank is  refusing to re-finance his other  debts until his is cleared from  the mortgage on the home.  Wilson said his ex-wife has  received a total of $27,950  directly from him since Feb.  1993. In addition to these payments, Wilson said the BC Liberal parly has been making  monthly installments totalling  SI6.673.16 towards the Pender  mortgage ��� money owed to  him from the days when he was  ihe provincial Liberal leader.  On Friday (March 25) Liz  Wilson said the Liberals have  not been making her mortgage  payments.  "I've been paying them," she  said.  She added that releasing her  ex-husband from the home's  mortgage is not part of the  divorce agreement.  But Liz Wilson refused to  comment on other criticisms  made by her ex-husband in a  press release issued from his  Victoria office lasl week.  In the release, Gordon Wilson said he was outraged hy  statements made public over Ihe  lasl year by bolh his ex-wife and  former political party, Ihe BC  Liberals, on his personal life and  suggested bolh parties were on a  "misinformation" campaign to  lower the political credibility of  both himself and his fiance,  MLA Judi Tyabji  "Our position in public life  has literally cost us everything...including Judi's children."  For her part, Liz Wilson said  she only wenl to Ihe media with  ihe mortgage story afler Wilson  refused to make the required  maintenance payment.  As a  public official,  he  should be setting an example,  she said.  "He had no right to violate a  court order...at my expense. I  rely on thai support."

Consl. Robin Blair of the  Gibsons RCMP detachment said  it appeared as though the ear  "had been bitten off."  The fight between Ihe Iwo  men broke oul shortly afler 9  p.m. at Ihe Peninsula Motor Inn  on Highway 101 near Roberls  Creek, Blair said. The man wilh  Ihe missing ear was taken to Sl.  Mary's Hospital in Sechell for  emergency treatment while his  opponent declined medical help,  though his hands and fingers  were visibly injured.  The injuries were the result of  being battered with a pool cue.  according to an eye-witness who  asked not to be named.  Extensive damage was also  done to the interior of Ihe bar.  Blair declined to release Ihe  name of either man, pending  the results of a police investigation. Neither man was taken into  custody nor have charges been  laid. Blair said it was not clear  whal extent alcohol played in  inciting Ihe fight.   -������  j__
