In a press release Thursday, CUPE  members expressed concerns about stalled  contract talks with the the school district.  Labour Relations Board mediator Larry  Greg, who was negotiating between Ihe  Iwo groups, halted talks on Aug. 18 saying  both sides were too far apart for mediation  to be effective.  District trustees have called for a special board meeting on Tuesday.  "In thirty years of bargaining with this  St. Mary's   |  abortion  numbers  on the  increase  by Jane Seyd  One teenaged girl in every  classroom on the Sunshine  Coast will get pregnant in an  average year.  Just over half of those pregnancies will end in abortion.  Most of the total number of  abortions done at St. Mary's  Hospital in Sechelt will, however, be done for older women -  not teenagers.  Still other local women will  avoid St. Mary's altogether and  will go off the Coast to have an _  abortion.  Those are just a few of the  facts to emerge last week, following the release of a B.C.  government report on access to  contraception and abortion in  the province. In the last three  years, the number of abortions  at St. Mary's has risen - from 31  in 1991/92 to 47 in the last year  ending in March. Fifteen of the  abortions last year were done on  women under age 19.  The total abortion rate for  Sunshine Coast women aged IS  to 44 hovered just below the  provincial average of IS abortions per 1,000 women in  1991/92.  Since shortly after the last  provincial election, St. Mary's  has been one of several hospitals in the province designated  as a regional abortion centre, for  women who are less than 10  weeks pregnant.  In fact, St. Mary's Hospital  is pointed out in the report as  providing better-than-usual care  for women seeking abortions, in  terms of its pre- and post-operative counselling and nursing  care.  Still, while 31 abortions were  done at St. Mary's in 1991/92,  54 women from the Sunshine  actually had the procedure -  which means 23 of those local  women had their abortions done  elsewhere. Unlike some other  areas of the province - particularly abortion clinics in Vancouver - St. Mary's hasn't had to  deal with harassment or threats  from anti-abortion activists.  Ted Wright, hospital administrator, says in the seven years  he's held the position, he can  recall two or three occasions  when anti-abortion protesters  marched with signs in front of  the hospilal.  Recently, though, "the profile of the whole issue has settled way down." According to  information in the report "Realizing Choices", the teen pregnancy rate on the Sunshine  Coast - of just over 42 pregnancies per 1,000 women - is lower  than the provincial average.  Dr. Paul Martiquet, chief  medical officer for the Coast-  Garibaldi Health Unit, credits  part of the lower teen pregnancy  rate to the Planned Parenthood  clinics which are run each  Thursday night in Gibsons.  turn lo back page  district, we have never even voiced the  word strike," said CUPE negotiator Janine  Strand.  "We're confused by the lack of movement by the district. They are refusing to  bargain realistically. We're not a bunch of  radicals, nobody wants a strike. We're  willing to go back to the bargaining table,  and we would consider binding arbitration," she said.  While most members of the district  management team were on 'retreat' al an  unnamed Coast location Thursday and Friday, district treasurer Tim Anderson fielded questions about the negotiations.  He confirmed the dislricl wants a three  year contract and is offering 0 per cent in  the first year, with nominal increases in  years two and three. "They are asking for  3.5 per cent each year, in a two-year contract," he said.  Strand said the 3.5 percent figure was  news to her, and that CUPE has always  had a two year contract.  "We want to let the public know, we're  not going out for a great wage increase,  this is more concessions than anything  else." In the event of a strike, CUPE is  planning free, alternative care centres for  the children of working parents.  Special education teaching assistants  (SETA's), clerks, librarians, maintenance  and custodial workers, are represented by  CUPE local 801. According to former  CUPE president, and bargaining committee member Linda Olsen, the district has  already eliminated 17 equivalent support  staff positions. This June all but three  SETAs were laid off, while their working  hours were reduced as a cost-utting measure. Workers had to reapply for their  positions on June 24.  It turns out, however, the education  ministry had given the school district permission to carry a deficit of $250,000  through 1996, which would have negated  the need for layoffs.  turn to back page  M Kayaking the Skookumchuck  A group of intrepid souls tackled the Skookumchuck rapids in kayaks last week, much to the amazement of locals. Story page 14.  Keith Thirkell photo  Travelling far to find contentment at home  by Darah Hansen  The spider's webs in the  corners of the deck are far  more elaborate than the  simple cottage in Roberts Creek.  Blue and white, the wood  framing is rotting, the scent of  mildew rising from underneath  the structure's paint ��� a result  of years of exposure to the  ocean lapping up at the foundations.  And the blackberry bushes in  behind offer it no protection,  only decor to the outside of Ihe  home.  "It's nice to be back," says  Wendy Norman, seated in a  deck chair on her back porch  overlooking the water. A red cat  is stretched out in the sunbeam  hitting directly below the chair.  "It's nice to be back among  friends... and back at work," she  says.  "And a shower with hot running water is really quite phenomenal. It sure beats pouring  cold water over your head from  out of a tin can."  The 34-year-old Sunshine  Coast doctor returned recently  from a one year sabbatical overseas ��� six months of which she  spent in Sudan, an African  country modern civilization has  yet to taint with its blend of  bounty and depravity.  Working with the European-  based medical organization,  Medicins Sans Fronteres (MSF)  ��� or, in English, Doctors Without Borders, Norman was sent  to Sudan in December, 1993.  In six months she saw thousands of people stricken with  fatal diseases, starvation and  wounds as a result of a deadly  civil war which has ravaged the  country for 40 years or more.  "It's a very special privilege  to drop in on a society and live  with ihem for six months," Norman says.  "What I'll always remember  is how warm, how open Ihey  Doctor Wendy Norman discusses her medical mission In Sudan.  Joel Johnstone pholo  were... (how ihey) struggled to  make some sense of their  world."  Going to Sudan was her  own choice, Norman  says.  She chose it from other countries because of her skill and  interest in treating tropical diseases.  And having just completed a  diploma in tropical medicine  and hygiene at the University of  Liverpool earlier in 1993, Norman wanted an opportunity lo  put that knowledge into practice.  MSF offered her that challenge.  A non-denominational, non-  political group, MSF has a slated objective to provide humanitarian relief to any population  trapped by war and disease.  "We go where other people  can't or won't go," is its motto.  Sudan had been a recipient of  MSF's aid efforts for the past  four years before Norman got  there.  Neighbouring Kenya and  Uganda, the current war in  Sudan, started in 1983, is  between well-educated  Arab/Muslims factions in the  north of the country and the  primitive, Christian nomadic  tribes in the south. ���  "Rich versus poor... it's the  same story you find anywhere I  suppose," Norman says.  It was in the south of the  country that Norman spent her  time and energy.  Living under the simplest of  conditions ��� straw huts, no running water, no roads or access to  a stable food source beyond their  simple farms, the major threat to  the southern Sudanese people  comes from a disease called  Kala-Azar, a parasite in the  blood system believed to be  transmitted by sandflies, Norman  says.  To the people there, Kala-  Azar is known as the "killing disease," she says. "Everyone who  got it, died."  MSF estimates up to 90,000  people from a population of  300,000 have died from the disease in the past five years ��� particularly children, many of whom  are weakened by malnutrition  and, therefore, more susceptible  to the parasite.  That was the hardest part for  Norman. "I saw dead babies and  children so often... and those terribly sick and skinny. It was so  difficult for me," she says.  Tuberculosis and diarrhea  from poor waler conditions are  also fatal problems in the country, Norman says. She estimates  the average lifespan in southern  Sudan at 50 years.  Her role in MSF was to set up  clinics to diagnose and treat the  ill.  turn to page 3  *_________________________________*__* f  Coast News, August 29, 1994  FREE  film or  2nd set  of prints  with each film developed  1 hour photos  5x7 prints 99$  Buy  Trade-Rent  Sega or Super  Nintendo  183-5710 ftredo Strati Stcttlt 885-2882  news  Cleanup begins follwing a  cigarette-caused lire at  Sunnycrest Mall last week.

The Federation of  Canadian Municipalities (FCM),  has extended an invitation for  local directors to engage in a  partnership program with  municipalities in Ecuador.  The exchange program is  being offered to the municipalities of Richmond, Vernon, and  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District, without charge to participants. Although Ecuador has  no governmental infrastructure  equivalent to the regional district, municipal governments  manage both rural and urban  areas.  Director Brett McGillvray,  who has been working with the  FCM on this program said,  "This is a great opportunity  for the regional district to participate in an international outreach program and to share  information. Certainly there.are  IS,    :%iiM$  differences with our structures,  but we have a lot of experience  with how local governments  deal with senior governments.  We've had to work on big  issues, like fish farming, water  quality, and land development."  Basile Gilbert, manager for  the Asia /America's exchange  program with the FCM, will be  meeting with directors later this  week . If the SCRD agrees to  participate, up to three directors  will leave with a Canadian contingent in December for two  days of talks in Quito, Ecud-  aor's capital, before spending a  week working with an outlying  municipality.  In other SCRD news, former  director Tony Laver was presented with a gift of appreciation by directors. Laver resigned  from the board earlier this year,  has been replaced by Eric Cardinall who won the Area F by-  election on August 13, with a  margin of 37 votes.  Cardinall seemed uncomfortable with the lack of background  information available at the  board meeting, and said he  hoped 'he wasn't faced by a  railroad.'  A similar concern was voiced  by audience member Clint  Davies, who complained that  bylaw information was presented by title only and the SCRD  didn't provide background  information to the public, so  people would understand what  was under discussion.  "To all intents and purposes  what you're doing is unintelligible to the public. I've been to a  number of council and municipal meetings in other districts,  and background information is  always available," said Davies.  Referring to the 'In Camera'  session which followed the regular board meeting, Davies complained that too much government goes on behind closed  doors on the Sunshine Coast.  )ftll ii, ii i  ^____v___m_^^a^<l!

And for the next Sunshine  Coast blood drive ��� coming up  Sept. 6 - they're making it less  time-consuming for people to  donate.

The Red Cross is aiming for  over 230 blood donors for the  Sunshine Coast clinic Ihis time,  but about 280 people need to  show up to make that goal, said  Johnston.  Most donors who come out  to Red Cross clinics have given  blood before, but the organization is slill hoping new donors  will come forward.  First donors musl be over 17,  under 60, and have eaten within  the lasl four hours so blood  sugar levels are stable.  Restrictions apply to people  who are on medication, have  had body or ear-piercing or  tatoos wilhin the last year or are  considered in a high-risk group  for HIV.  While many other clinics  have seen their numbers drop in  recent years over publicized  HIV/AIDS blood scandals, Sunshine Coasl donations have  actually been rising, said Johnston.  All blood types are needed,  and after a long-weekend when  accidents lend to happen, blood  supplies are often at their most  critical levels, said Johnston.  The Red Cross does two  blood donor clinics on Ihe Sunshine Coasl each year.  Johnston said the organization is also hoping to find new  volunteer coordinators to run the  clinics in the future.  The clinic lakes place Sept. 6  from 3 pm to 8 pm at the  Sechelt seniors activity centre.  et Coast News, August 29, 1994  news  Medical student returns from Rwanda  by Keith Thirkell  Jonathan Brock, a 28-year-  old medical student, wanted a  nice safe job for the summer, so  he joined the Coasl Guards  Search and Rescue operation in  Pender Harbour.  "Sure," he says, "There are  times the job gets a little crazy,  but it's nothing like doing emergency surgery in the middle of a  war zone." And Brock speaks  with the voice of experience; he  did a five week stint earlier this  spring and summer in Rwanda.  Brock was part of the international medical organization  Medicins Sans Frontiers  (M.S.F.), Doctors Without Borders, which places doctors and  medical students in troubled  spots around the world. Essentially it's an humanitarian mission which strives to take emergency first aid and medicine to  places where those services  have been disrupted or do not  exist at all, Brock says. The bottom line though is saving lives;  "We had no grand exceptions of  ending the war or Ihe suffering  but if we can save a few hundred lives then we know we've  accomplished something."  As for the conditions in  Rwanda, Brock describes them  as attrocious.  "We were almost constantly  under fire," he says. "It really  was a living hell."  Wilh bodies literally dropping like flies it was sometimes  difficult not to get overwhelmed, he adds.  Brock, however, was already  a war hardened field surgeon  by the time he hit the sand in  Rwanda. He did a similar stint  last year in Somalia. He says  he's seen more unnecessary  deaths in one year than most  Canadians see on TV in a life  lime.  But Brock says with so many  desperate people needing attention, there's no time to get overwhelmed. "The task is always  right in front of you." And he  says, wilh the stench of death  Jonathan Brock.  always wafting through the air,  time is of the essence.  So why would a young up-  and-coming Canadian medical  student want to risk it all to put  a small dent in the armour of  human suffering? Brock says  part of it is definitely ethical;  "We take so much for granted  Keith Thirkell pholo  here but the fact is three quarters  of the world lives in dire poverty, half the time caught between  some senseless power struggle.  I guess it's my way of reaching  out to those who by sheer  chance were born into less fortunate circumstances."  But Brock says there's also a  more practical and professional  side lo it as well.  "Where else," he asks,  "would a Canadian med student  get to stand in the middle of a  combat zone performing 20 to  30 emergency operations a  day."  One of the first things he was  told by superiors upon arrival  was how many different diseases were present in the area.  "The senior medical staff  said I would see things in Rwanda that were now totally  unheard of in Canada. Things  like advanced terberculosis and  cholera, for example."  Even without his medical  degree, Brock has been offered  almost full time work with  M.S.F.. He's decided to finish  his studies though, take a little  break and plan his future.  "I'll definitely be spending  some of my professional career  over seas but I have no illusions  about my own limitations, I'm  no saviour, but if you ask me do  I think I'm making a difference?  - most definitely. We might not  be able to stop all the pain but  we do save lives and that in it  self means something."  Ultimately, Brock says, all  the solutions are political. "Our  government could start by  pushing for more restrictions on  the international sales of military hardware. And most of  these war torn countries are still  in the process of throwing off  the chains of colonialism. It  seems we only notice their  plight if our own economic  interests are threatened. "But  until the political and economic  will changes, M.S.F. will continue to try and stem the tide of  human misfortune and pain with  a bandaid.  Brock, who hails from  Ontario, has family on the Coast  whom he regularly visits. He  will spend the rest of his summer with the Coast Guard, as he  has for the past four summers.  This year he is supervisor of  ' the Pender Harbour operation.  tllRRICAnE  MARINE REPAIRS  MIKE WRIGHT and DAN CROSBY  -I Mariner, Mercruiser Sales & Service 4/  ���I Marine Repairs -l  -I Certified Mercury & Mercruiser Mechanics ���!>  J/ Mercury, Mercruiser Parts & Accessories -l  -I Pressure Washing Hull Cleaning & Painting J>  BOOK NOW FOR WINTER STORAGE  30 SPACES AVAILABLE  We offer flat, paved, fenced storage  Total Commitment to Customer Satisfaction  iJgpwiy*     BUS OUTBOARDS  Baal ���������i-i.-u;  The Onfy Logical Choice  S��ch��M.  ���675 INDUSTRIAL WAY, GIBSONS, BC ��� 886-2433 CELL 1 -657-5529  Pure Water for  Entire Home or Business  Ihe Ultra Pure D6  For the ultimate  in state-of-the  art water  purification  for residential  and business  use-installed at  "point-of-entry".

Doctor finds dilemma  in Sudan experience  from page 1  The clinics were formed  from bamboo mats on Ihe  dirt floor of a straw hut. A  single table held the selection of  eight medicines necessary to the  treat the sick.  Norman says, if caught in  time, the diseases could be  cured.  Norman was aided in her  work by other foreign nurses  and doctors working with MSF  and by local young men trained  under the organization. The  same men, among the three per  cent of the population who were  literate, often spoke some  English and doubled their duties  at the make-shift hospitals by  acting as translators.  Despile the immediate success of the presence of MSF in  Sudan, Norman isn'l convinced  of her personal role in Ihe program.  "I certainly have more skills  than when I left (the Coast),"  she says, pausing to answer  whether she feels touched by her  experience.  Her dilemma is part of a larger a philosophical debate, she  says ��� a question of whether  she did more harm than good in  the country.  Along with providing necessary medical care, Ihe influx of  weslern culture brings thoughts,  ideas, and tangible items far  beyond whal these primitive  people have previously been  touched by.  "I can'l help thinking we  were helping Ihem be less content with what they've got," she  says.  Moreover, Norman feels  she'd like more education before  reluming lo a third world country.  "These people don'l need  fancy doctors with shiny equipment, they need someone to  teach ihem how to look after  Iheir own people," she says,  adding "Ihere are people who  can do that (teach) belter than I  can."  Norman says she does feel  more content now having gone  and worked in Sudan.  "I don't see my work in  Sechell as being less valuable or  less valid than whal I was doing  over there....in many ways it  doesn't offer me any more (as a  doctor) than being able to provide care right here."

Well, sort of.  For years dust from a nearby dirt road has caused problems for residents of Sechelt's Porpoise Bay Properties  subdivision while they tried in vain to make Sechelt council take notice.  Now, area resident John Burns has the District of  Sechelt in civil court, suing the municipality for $10,000  over the issue.  Not a lot of money, really, when one thinks of the  amount of time and effort that has been put into trying to  make council take responsibility for the problem.  The fact is, both the gravel road - Burnett Road - and  the subdivision are within District of Sechelt boundaries.  Burnett Road, which currently serves as access to a  gravel pit, is technically a municipal thoroughfare.  Council in the past has said Sechelt is not responsible  because the municipality has "never" done any improvement work on the road, a prerequisite step under the  municipal act before the municipality is seen as responsible.  Burns, however, contends the District of Sechelt has  done work on the road, including grading it when it  becomes too rough.  What Burns and residents of Porpoise Bay Properties  want, essentially, is for the municipality to acknowledge  the problem and maintain the gravel road leading to the  gravel pit... to provide some measure of dust control.  In an ideal world, the residents would see Burnett Road  paved.  The only really unfortunate thing about the situation is  that it will take so long for the court system to work.  The dust problem rose in 1990, and the case was first  brought to court in the fall of 1993. Now it has been postponed again until February of 1995. And still the problem  persists.  Well, to his credit, John Burns has persisted as well.  And with a little luck his persistence may be rewarded  with a court victory. Even if the judge doesn't award him  the $10,000, Burns may finally make Sechelt take a little  respemibthty -for some of the long-ignored problems  within town boundaries.  We won't know for sure, however, until the dust settles.  Long distance  telephoning changes  in the wind  Just a note about pending changes to telephoning in  Canada.  It seems that North America is running out of phone  numbers under the current system due to increased  demand for non-traditional services like fax machines and  cellular phones.  So... starting in September all long distance calls,  including dialing from Pender Harbour to Gibsons, will  require an area code. It may take some getting used to.  To cope with his dust problem, Mr. John Burns tries a new lifestyle..,  Bugged by column  RE: Pillow Talk of lasl  week's Coasl News  I am Ihe "little orange bug  with the black top", for sale on  the hill in Gibsons.

On this day, she travelled to  the ferry by bus wilh her Iwo  young boys to meet the boy's  father. Her surrender of the boys  for a .weekend camping trip  brought bolh fear and excitement, since it was only the second time in months she had Ihe  opportunity for a break.  Loaded with fishing gear,  camping equipment, and enough  money for one ferry ride home,  as to nol exceed their now disciplined budget, the small family  sel off for yel another disappointment.  The boys could barely contain their excitement during the  long ferry ride to their father,  but nothing could have prepared  ihem for what would happen  next.  Upon arriving in Horseshoe  Bay, it was painfully obvious  lhal ihey would not meet up  with their father. Afler a search  for his vehicle and a call that  brought lean lo the boys' eyes,  Ihe small family, loaded with  bags and bags of gear, ran to the  letters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  interest.

Humbling herself with her personal story of betrayal and begging for assistance, Ihe mother  offered a cheque for the amount  of her five and seven-year-olds'  fare. (Six dollars)  After being rudely refused  with a 'that's your problem, not  mine', the mother, the boys, and  their baggage ran to the nearest  bank machine in Horseshoe  Bay. They made il back with  only a few cars left to load. She  paid, and the same 'nice licket  women' notified the ferry lo  wail for three more fool passengers.  The three dashed for the ferry  as fast as their legs would carry  Ihem, bul fitting right ih  sequence, the unexperienced  ferry goers ran lo the top deck.  The ramp had already been  pulled, and Ihe mother could see  down to the bottom deck where  the men were that were supposed to be wailing for her. She  screamed down, "please wait,  please ���." As she looked over  she could see the men shaking  their heads "no". The men then  secured and gave the signal for  departure.  The small family fell to Iheir  knees in an overload of emotions and bad luck.  I would like lo say 'hats off"  to the ferry workers involved  here. You know who you are!

S.A.BERNTSON  Roberts Creek  The ethical dilemma of naming names is not easy  Like most people, I've often been struck with  the things they just don't teach you in school.  In journalism, as for many professions, "ethics"  was an alarmingly small part of the curriculum  while at university. Turns out, of course, it's a  rather large part of the job.  For reporters and editors, ethics is one of those  large, nebulous and shadowy issues, which falls  into the cavernous grey vacuum where what's  legally allowable leaves off.  It includes all of the big concerns - like what's  newsworthy, how much we have a duty to report,  community feelings and the effect our words might  have on other people's lives.  Right up near the top of this ethical morass is  the issue of when to name names.  The truth is, unless the subject at hand happens  to be a politician with something to gain, a great  many people would rather their names not appear  in the paper.  It's not hard to see why. Many items which  make it into the paper by their very nature involve  conflict and controversy. Oftentimes it's worse.  And sometimes, people simply don't want to call  attention to themselves.  For journalists, it's a difficult issue, because the  coastal beat  general rule is people must be named along with  any public statements.  For many papers, unaltributed quotations are  simply nol acceptable.  There are good reasons for ihis.  Anyone can say anything they like under a  shield of anonymity. Without the name of an actual  person, there's no context to help interpret the  comment, and no recourse for a reader to verify  what's being said.  Naming names may make people wary, but it  also tends to keep everyone more honest.  It also adds a rather important element of hard  reality to a story.  Of course, there are times when not naming  jane seyd  people seems justified, when confidential medical  or sexual issues are involved.  Others instances are less clear, such as people  who fear they'll be harassed if they speak oul in the  paper, who fear losing their jobs, getting cut off  some kind of income, or upsetting and angering  family if their views or the details of iheir situations are published.  Each one is an ethical decision and no doubt, I,  like others, have sometimes made the wrong one.  In court reporting, these issues only get more  complicated and more serious in their potential to  affect many people's lives.  Understandably, most people who end up before  the judge don't want their their names in the paper.  But one of the principles of our court system is  that it is open. And in it, real people are charged  with real crimes, which take place almost every  day in our communities.  Often there's an issue of not wanting lo "re-victimize" the victims of certain crimes. For certain  types of crimes, like sexual assault, the identity of  someone charged or convicted is not often revealed  in order to protect the victim.  But there are grey areas here as well.  For instance, should similar rules apply for  cases of spousal assault (often an issue before the  courts on the Sunshine Coast)?  I'm not sure.  Sometimes I wonder just what kind of message  we're sending by not naming those convicted in  order lo protect victims from the "shame" of public  identification. Whose shame is il anyway?  And what about people who are charged, only lo  be found not guilty later on, often long after their  names have first been published in the paper?  These are difficult questions.  I don't know all the answers.  As the American columnist Bob Greene once  commented, "Whal do we owe the people we wrile  aboul? Maybe nothing. Perhaps a little kindness."

The job interviewee stared  on in horror as the assistant  bank manager's thin lips moved  in a wavy chewing motion.  While slill smacking away at  her poppy seed muffin, she lold  Ihe interviewee, "This is a high  level posilion, you know?"  "I'm well aware of THAT,"  he said in a Sleve-Marlin-being-  confidenl-volce and immediately fell his shoulders sloop like  an old horse being mounted by  fai knight in full bailie armor.  The assislant manager  noticed this and leapt for his  throat.  "This job is more than just a  job. It can be a career and if you  climb the ladder right, you may  one day fill my shoes."  She leaned inlo his space and  glared at him hard for five seconds and leapt again. "We don't  want any slackers or scum...and  lhat is why you have cleared our  screening and passed our short  list exam," she smiled.  "Uh huh," he said, wailing  for the grand finale with  scrunch-toed anticipation.  "Now, there's one last test  you musl lake," she said, popping the lasl piece of poppy seed  muffin into her yap.  She handed him a small  beaker and smiled that thin-  lipped smile. What he supposed  were her teelh tried lo pop out  in the middle  past ihe lips bul a stern  demeanor borne from years of  biling her tongue on the way up  the ladder forced them back.  The interviewee grasped Ihe  beaker lightly and wondered if  he should ask but it came oul  before his rationality chips fired.  "What is this for?"  "For you to pee inlo, lhank  you." She held her hand toward  the door. "Bathroom is on the  other side of the office pasl all  the desks."  He stood and turned, "Why  should I pee into this?"  "Because, it is our company  policy lo screen for drug-users.  Don't be long." She waved her  hand in a tut-lut, now scuttle off  way.  The interviewee shrugged  and closed the door behind him.  All 20 or so people that  worked in the large open office  took at leasl one gander at him  as he marched toward the bathroom with a noble Voltaire-  death-dream march.  A busy looking little man  trundled pasl him and knocked  ian cobb  on the assislant manager's door.  As the interviewee stepped  inlo the bathroom Ihe little bank  manager stepped inlo his  employee's office.  "Ms. Flange, you've been  wilh us...whal... 11 years?" He  asked with a voice lhat could be  compared lo Maxwell Smart  when he's admitting yet another  gaffe lo the Chief.  "No, I've been with the Eastern Bank of Shyst for 12 years,  Mr. Grappler," the assistant  manager said, leaning back in  her leather chair.  "That's too bad, you musl  have compiled quite a pension  by now though," the assistant  manager heard her boss say.  "What are trying to tell me?"  She whispered.  "You're fired," Grappler  responded matter-of-factly. "ll  seems you've failed the drug  test."  "I don't do drugs," she  yelped.  "According lo your urine  sample you're a light marijuana  user," Grappler said.  "I haven't smoked a joint in  10 years, easy," Flange said,  tears welling.  "I'm sorry Ms. Flange bul  you know the rules and there's  one other thing, ll appears as  though you've also been dabbling in what the lab techs lell  me could be cocaine."  Flange fainted. Her head  whacked onto the desk on top of  Ihe poppy seed wrapper. A  knock came at Ihe door.  The interviewee stepped in  and saw Flange lying face down  on her desk.  "Ummm," he said.  "Ah, a urine sample, come  along with me young man. I'll  deal with you," Grappler said  and lead Ihe interviewee away.  As the office door shut  Flange entered a groggy period  of REM and dreamed she was  sitting in a living room filled  wilh friends.  A joint was being passed  around.  She politely refused as it  wafted under her nose. Suddenly, a black wall appeared and in  the very dead centre of it was a  small beaker with her name  written on a strip of masking  tape in Ihe centre of il.  A poppy seed muffin floated  past and she heard a scientist  announce, "These little seeds, if  ingested, will give off the same  indicators in your urine as  cocaine."  "Damn rules," she dreamed.  letters  SCRD scrutiny  As one of Ihe parties directly  involved wilh filing the complaint wilh Municipal Affairs  regarding the allegations of the  SCRD's misallocation of funds,  I feel I musl comment on Ihe  recent developments reported in  your paper.  I fully support Mayor Eric  Small's stance on demanding the  board implement most, if not all,  of the inspector pf municipalities' recommendations.,  Clearly, funds were misallo-  caied by the SCRD and Ihose  funds came from Ihe taxpayers  of Sechelt and Gibsons. Clearly,  the rural directors have in the  past, and il seems will continue  to do so in the future, banded  together lo keep Gibsons and  Sechell in the background while  using Gibsons and Sechelt's  money to do with what ihey will.  It is most magnanimous for  Sechelt's representative on the  Board, Mayor Earl Basse lo say  "ihere may have been some mis-  allocation of funds, though I'm  not so sure Ihey were so significant. I want lo see how we can  do belter, and focus on thai."  Not so significant? By my reckoning, ihe SCRD owes the  I  The Battle is Back... Sat Sept 17 & Sun.

A million dollars?  As far as Chairman Connor's  comments on not inviting Gibsons and Sechell to participate in  SCRD Board functions such as  workshops and retreats and "giving the municipalities a break by  nol committing you lo be on  committees"...give me a break  Peggy.  Each SCRD director is supposed lo be equal...and lhal  includes the Gibsons and Sechelt  representatives. Not to even be  made aware of ihe retreats or  workshops that the rest of the  directors take pan in is inexcuse-  able...especially when Gibsons  and Sechelt are paying for part  of them ihrough their taxes. And  as far as committees go, both  Gibsons and Sechelt sil on  SCRD committees that represent  functions lhal we pay to be part  of. However, you'll never find a  municipal representative as  chairperson of one of those committees.  Maybe because ihe rest of the  SCRD wants to keep the extra  $5,000 they pay to chairpeople  "in the family."  On many occasions while I  was Mayor of Sechelt, ihe  SCRD called special meetings or  changed the time of meetings  without informing either Eric  Small or me. Somehow the  information got to all of ihe rural  directors...bul nol lo us. Mayor  Basse seems to think lhal Ihe  installation of fax machines in  each director's home will put a  slop to lhat. Wake up Earl! The  rural directors always knew.and  the  municipalities  had fax  machines. And when I was  mayor, both Eric Small and I had  our home numbers in the phone  book. Don't pile another needless expense on the taxpayer by  supplying fax machines to  everyone. Even with fax  machines by our beds the municipal representatives will continue  to be "accidentally" excluded!  Mayor Basse says "you can't  legislate trust." No you can't.  You can't buy il either and let-  ling the SCRD get away wilh Ihe  mis-use of $100,000 of Sechelt's  money won't change anything.  Whal will change things is to  clean house at the next election  so that the same old rural directors will be off the board. If ihe  same people keep coming back,  for the most part unopposed, you  had might as well say goodbye  io the idea of one government  because they will pul as many  roadblocks as they can in the  way.  After all, each has a little  kingdom over which they rule  and unless something changes  they will keep on ruling their  kingdoms and, through block  voting, the municipalities too.  And while I'm al it...both  Gibsons and Sechelt paid their  share of tne now famous  $17,000 table that graces the  SCRD board room. I know I  would feel a lol better aboul il if  the old table were brought back  and the new one used as a second ice surface at the Arena.

IS issue of the  Coasl News I feel it is important  lo clarify Conslruction Aggregates' position wilh regard to the  sanding of Sechelt's Trail Bay  beach.  Construction Aggregates is  nol Irying lo pull a fast one on  anyone and is not looking for a  place to deposit excess sand.  CAL. was approached by the  Sechelt Chamber of Commerce  and asked if we would consider  donating material for the sanding  of Trail Bay beach.  The company responded by  offering to supply the sand and  equipment to sand the beaches if  the community was in favour of  the project and if Ihe Ministry of  Environment and Department of  Fisheries approved.  In addition, ihe employees of  Construction Aggregates generously offered to donate their  lime to do the work.  In terms of a place for Construction Aggregates to get rid of  excess material, it would take  only 20,000 tonnes of sand to  cover ihe 1.5 kilometre stretch of  Trail Bay beach 30 metres wide  and .3 metres deep.  Conslruction Aggregates  ships this much material every  day.  There is absolutely no economic benefit to Construclion  Aggregates in placing sand on  Sechelt beaches.  I think Ms. Barnsley is unfairly judging ihe motives of our  company, however I do agree  with her lhat the citizens of  Sechelt should communicale  their support or objection for Ihis  project to Sechelt council. A  projeci of ihis type must be supported by the communily if it is  to be undertaken.

This special week, proclaimed by the  Mayor of Gibsons, began with a suggestion  by the Rev. Esther North that our community  show the children what it has to offer them.  Besides the program of events going on all  this week down in the courtyard level of St.  Bart's, Gibsons, Ihere are activities provided  by more than a dozen community associations  or facilities - activities especially for children  and families.  Tours of Ihe Pioneer Museum, for example, as well as a map hunt of the recreational  treasures of the Sunshine Coast, a colouring  contest, how to care for a pet dog or cat, visits  lo the Fire Department and to Ihe RCMP, a  visit to the fish hatchery, the library, Molly's  Lane Market.  Quite a list! And all near al hand. As well,  the swimming pool offers a discount for family rentals in September, and there's a discount  too on family excursions of Howe Sound  islands by charter boat this week.  Tomorrow at St. Bart's courtyard there are  seminars in child protection and one on banking and new planning options. Other events  continue until Saturday afternoon.

Wally Langdale, whose.family name  graces our ferry terminal and the subdivision  on the upland nearby, loaned me a news clipping telling about his kid brother Les. Wally,  89, uses the term since his Les is only 72.  Les Langdale, a mid-upper gunner in a  Halifax bomber in World War II, remembers  the strong bond of trust and friendship among  the crew members, a bond stronger lhan that  of brothers. At a reunion of Ihe crew in 1993  all agreed they'd just as soon forget everything about the war except their comradeship.  One of the crew said, "If the powers that  be had a bunch of old guys like us who knew  what it was like they'd never be able to stir up  a war in the first place. They'd have to find  some other way to settle the way to settle the  squabble." The anecdote from a bomber crew  reunion expresses the theme that emerged  , from all the 50th anniversary of D-day gatherings Ihis year.  You're Invited!  to the  Raven's Cry  OPEN HOUSE  and  General Meeting  FRIDAY, SEPT. 16  7:30-10:00 pm  Lots of fun & entertainment  for the whole family  Hwy. 101 House of Hewhiwus, Sechelt, BC  Resident dedicates time to raise  money through Terry Fox Run  by Darah Hansen  Every year about this time,  Dogpatch resident Liz Calder  takes out her pledge sheets and  goes to work on the community.  No one is exempt from her  crusade.  "Every penny, every nickel  helps," she says, of her determination to ask everyone and anyone she meets to help donate to  the annual Terry Fox Run on the  Sunshine Coasl.  Calder, 36, has consistently  been one of the strongest forces  behind the Terry Fox pledge  drive on the Coast for years.  Over the past five years she's  gathered $5,309 worth of  pledges, collecting $1,969 just  last year ��� a personal best, says  Calder. This year she's hoping lo  lop that figure. "I try every year,"  she says. "It's a little challenge I  set up for myself."  "Everyone     has     their  cause...with me, it's cancer," she  says. Calder's commitment to the  Terry Fox Run ��� which raises  money for cancer research ���  stems from her own experience  with the disease.  'Everyone bos their  causa., with me,  It's cancer'  ���Liz Calder  At age 14, she was diagnosed  with a brain tumor.  Her sickness and subsequent  treatment made Terry Fox's  dream of finding a cure for cancer all the more urgent for her.  "I remember when Terry Fox  was on his run. I followed it  faithfully...Il just really hit me  what he was (trying to do), as it  did many people."  Terry Fox raised $24.17 million in 1981 while running across  Canada on his 'Marathon of  Hope' in aid of cancer research.  The Marathon of Hope continues in Sechelt and Gibsons,  Sept. 18. The routes are three, six  and 10 kilometres long. Walkers,  bikers and runners are all welcome.  Participants are encouraged to  pick up pledges for their  marathon efforts. Pledge sheets  are available at various businesses around the Coast.  For information on how to  enter the run or register a donation, phone Mike Metcalfe in  Sechelt at 885-3131 or Rieta  Hanson in Gibsons at 8864305.  "I really hope Ihis does promote a few more people to get  out and do something...or give  something. One of these days  they might just come up with a  cure," Calder says.

Creek Daze  The 1994 Creek Daze was a  blast from beginning to finish.  On Friday, the Creekers blazed  to victory as they wiped out the  Firefighters baseball team. Word  has it that they are belter with a  hose than a bat...but what the  heck...you have a whole year to  practise.  Later in the evening, the Mr.  Roberts Creek pageant was held  at the hall and enjoyed by a full  house! There were seven contestants including a mystery guest  who represented the fire department.  Co-host Ken Dagleish claims  these candidates represented the  "Real Men of Roberls Creek."  He guaranteed there were no  Clowning around ahead of the Rainbow Pre-school float at Ihe  Hlggley-Piggley Parade in Roberts Creek. Joel Johnstone photo  impostors.

Diane Emmons who hosted  and was the evening's MC conducted the event like a pro.  Atlantic City, eat your heart oul!  The candidates were asked many  questions and were judged on  savoir faire, brains, brawn and  entertainment. The answers were  diplomatic and they all agreed  thai we were privileged to live in  the Creek.

Summer's end means reduced  speeds are back in force on  Chaster Road. Please watch for  bikes and buses again. The Tint  day of school, September 6, is a  half day only.  Has your garden done well  this summer? The Fall Fair is  hoping Elphinstone will again do  a display table. The trophy is  quite big and beautiful. Our community was the first lo win this  trophy several years ago. Call me  if you have any produce or products for a community display  table. Lei's try to give  Hopkins/Granthams a ran for the  prize.  The regular Elphinstone Elector's Association meets September 14, 7:30 pm at Frank West  Community Use Room. No meetings were held all summer so do  turn out wilh questions and problems.  Back-to-school time makes  me reassess the woodpile and  find ihe leaf rake. Rather than  burn or bag for trash, you could  make ihose leaves into compost. I  bought an Earth Machine ($40  from the SCRD) and it will hold  a year's worth of leaves easily.  Layer with kilchen scraps, green  clippings and a few shovels of  earth. There are still some Earth  Machines left. I ihink it appropriate that local government is offering such a good deal - after all,  more compost equals less tonnage lo Ihe landfill equals less  taxes. The bonus from the deal is  lhat you end up with a valuable  amendment for your garden. Fall  and again in spring are the best  limes lo lop dress wilh compost.  Jusl a final reminder, no burning al ail and reduced sprinkling  are slill in effect.  Please call Catherine at 886-  7785 with items or announcements.  ��� ������_______. community  Coast News, August 29, 1994  dockside davls bay  by Jo-Anne Sheanh 885-3629  This week sees Ihe end of our fling at  summer and the last holiday weekend until  Thanksgiving in October, so let's make the  best of it.  School  School opens nexl week and already  workshops, seminars, course, classes and  meetings are in the planning stages and  another round of activities for Ihe fall/winter  season is underway. Cap College has already  distributed its fall term brochure with a varied selection of courses which include  career/vocational and academic subjects, to  name a few. Anyday now we can expect the  Continuing Ed brochure to land in our mailbox. Watch for il as there are always new  and interesting things to learn.  Okanagan visit  We spent last weekend in the Okanagan  visiting relatives and while there were no  fires visible, Ihe 'fallout' from the Penticton  fires was evident everywhere. There is a fine  layer of black soot on everything: cars, deck  furniture, house siding, windows, elc. Even  the grass - walk Ihrough it in bare feet and  your feet become black, as do Ihe dogs. I'm  lold there have been a lot of respiratory problems as a result of this fine black dust in the  air. How blessed we are to have the clean,  clear air we have here.  We were surprised at the cost of fruit and  vegetables at the roadside stands around  Oliver and Keremeos, the heart of the  orchards and farms. The prices were high  when you consider fruit is falling off the  trees and rotting on the ground. One cannot  help but Ihink of the millions of people in the  world who are starving and this wonderful  food is going to waste. We have seen Okanagan fruit and vegetables cheaper here on the  mainland than we saw up Ihere.  Fishing has been a great disappointment  this year to most fisherman. The dock, which  in years past was always abuzz with fish  being caught every day, has not attracted Ihe  numbers it usually does. If there are any  caught al all, ihey are usually not keepers  and have lo be thrown back. As you read  this, the Charlie Brookman Derby will have  taken place, so next week you will have all  the results.  Thrift shop  St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary's Thrift  Shop continues to be one of the busiest  places in town with its bargain prices and  interesting assortment of goods. With  schooldays fast approaching, mothers, ever  mindful of the budget, are snapping up the  choicest apparel and outfitting their children  in fashion and style. The shop has been open  on Mondays for Ihe summer months to  accommodate visitors to the area, but will  resume its Monday closings after the holiday. Do enjoy Ihis last official week of summer!

For those old enough to  remember, the TV health message features a 1950's type family, of Mom, Dad, and two kids  eating foods very high in fat.  Did you notice the little girl  pouring fatty gravy onto her  food? It turned my stomach, but  also alarmed me somewhat that  our heart healthy low fat eating  message might be translated for  children, too. Wrong!  It is definitely not great for  babies and toddlers to eat a low  fat diet.  Breast milk is the best milk  for infants and it's naturally  high in .fat and infant formula  copies this. Toddlers should  drink breast milk or whole milk  until they are at least two years  of age.  But whal aboul school-aged  kids and pre-schoolers? How  much fat is good for ihem? The  answer to lhat question involves  growth.  To grow well, children need  to get enough calories for activities and growth as well as plenty  of fat-soluble vitamins. Because  fat provides more than twice as  many calories as starches and  proteins, kids need to eat more  fai than adults just to get enough  calories to grow.  Peanut butter and cheese, for  example, can be good snack  foods for children. They pack  plenty of calories into a small  space as well as protein, vitamins and minerals.  Adults may need to choose  more moderate amounts of these  higher fat foods. Does thai mean  children shouldn't eal Ihe lower  fai meals Iheir parents do? Not  necessarily. They can be learning to enjoy these good tasting  lower fat foods with the rest of  Ihe family.  Eating the Modern Way is an  encouragement lo deal with the  fat tooth syndrome.  Fast foods and junky foods  are still laced wilh fai, chocolate, too.  These sort of empty calories  could be the foods we offer and  encourage in moderation.  By the time teens are making  independent food choices, it's  often a time of food rebellion or  peer comfort.  Of course, once teens have  finished growing, their bodies  are ready to eat the modern way,  but they are challenged by their  freedom to choose and pressures  to be in shape.  Eating the Modern Way still  has a strong message. Less  sauces and gravies, fatty meats  and dairy will keep most of us  trim for the year 2000.  When our young ones see  how we eat healthy, they can  leant to make heart smart choices for themselves when they  grow up.

The Columbia Coasl Mission  established hospitals al Rock  Bay, Texada Island, Garden Bay  and Alerl Bay, serving the  needs of the sick and injured.  They employed a small flotilla of vessels which carried clergy, doctors and dentists into isolated communities  Last weekend the Sundowner  Inn, formerly Sl. Mary's hospilal al Garden Bay, opened Ihe  doors of hospitality to welcome  home the mission boats, their  crews, and families whose lives  were touched by and sometimes  depended upon the mission  boats.  Sundowner owner Dallas  Brock promised the event would  be a walk down memory lane,  and it was.  Luella Duncan, the first bride  married in the chapel at St.  Mary's, explained why Ihe boats  were called sky pilots.  "As kids we thought they  brought Ihe message from God  out of the sky and across the  water to us."  All weekend Ihe Garden Bay  dock was crowded wilh curious  onlookers. Visions of yesterday  were moored at the floats.  The Columbia III, flagship  of the Columbia Coasl Missions,  now majestically restored by  owner Bill McKechnie, rolled  Almeda Scott aboard the Messenger III, one of six former mission  boats to return last week to Pender Harbour's Sundowner Inn,  formerly St Mary's Hospital. Joel Johnstone photo  gently beside the launch-like  vessel 'Argonaut,' once known  as the Thomas Crosby IV.  The Columbia, designed by  marine engineer Robert Allen  in 1956, was a hospital ship fea  turing portable X-ray equipment, a dental chair, and an  infirmary. She was crewed by a  captain, a chaplain, a doctor and  a deckhand. Her foc'sal was  designed as a chapel with altar,  a portable organ, and seated  twenty for marriages, Sunday  services, and baptisms.  McKechnie found the ship in  'pretty sad shape' in 1987.  "She'd been sold from the mission in 1978, because float  planes had taken over much of  the medical evacuations, and  she'd been used as a floating  bunkhouse for tree planters."  McKechnie bought her in  1988 and has spent six years  restoring her. She now is a charter vessel out of Victoria.  Other returned ships were the  Monserrado a.k.a. the Alan  Greene, named after Ihe  Columbia Coast Mission superintendent, the Chelsea II, a.k.a.  Ihe John Anile, The Veracity  and Ihe Messenger III.  Among the sold out crowds  enjoying dinner and literary  readings by Edith Iglauer and  Howard White al Ihe event Friday night were two of Alan  Greene's daughters.  Greene was the CCM's  superintendent from 1936-1960,  and his daughters Catherine  Tuck and Marjory Greene often  accompanied him in his sky  piloting.  "He was a hard taskmaster  aboard ship," Marjory said.  "It didn't make any difference is you were family or not,  everyone toed his line."  Sunday morning with fine  weather, the ships sailed inlo  history.  Dallas Brock is hoping this  historic reunion will become an  annual event.

Il's all aboul 'how' you find it!  Mount Angel sticks out above the surrounding lands by maybe 100 feel! Can you  imagine how much we could make with  'our' mountains? Just the same all the  monies go to the 'cause', which in this case  is the new equipment needed needed by the  P.H. Health Centre and St. Mary's Hospital.

Especially impressive was  the Moon Bags Ceremony.  This took place at dusk  where a bonfire was lit on the  beach, and from the flames of  the fire hundreds of candles  were lit, placed in white bags  which were attached to small  flat pieces of wood, then placed  at Ihe water's edge and floated  out lo.sea.  Under a moonlit sky it  looked like a flotilla of lit up  sailboats slowly floating  towards the horizon. A fireworks display followed, a rock  band sent out its vibes, and, in  all, it was a most enjoyable  evening.  The next day's celebrations  were in the ball park where Ihe  popular highlight was entertainment by a singing group known  as Ihe Texada Stars, under the  leadership of our own Nikki  Weber who now makes her  home on the island.  Brought back memories of  the good old days when the  Halfmoon Hams did their thing  and had so much fun. Actually,  the whole ambience of the  island was reminiscent of what  egmont news  it was like in this area some 10  or 15 years ago, before we were  discovered by developers.  There were deer all over the  place, just like it used to be on  Redrooffs, and the pleasing  thing was that on nearly all the  properties there were "no hunting" signs.  Brought bach  memories of the  good old days when  the Halfmoon Hams  did their thing and  bad so much fun  The folks Ihere like things  the way they are, they appreciate the wildlife and their trees,  and il will be a long lime before  concrete replaces iheir trees.  More on hummingbirds  I read with inleresl Brock  Hansen's letter lo the editor  regarding my suggestion that  feeders should be removed to  allow the birds to migrate further south.  Very interesting quotations  from experts, bul personally I  don't ihink it requires a degree  in ornithology to know thai artificially feeding any wildlife  species for long periods of lime  is harmful, lhat if a food supply  is easy, Ihe creature will lose its  ability to fend for itself in the  wild.  As for the statement that  Anna's hummingbirds overwinter and breed in December and  January in Vancouver, it is hard  to imagine that they could do so  unless they are in the vicinity of  some facility where there is an  abundance of blossoms.  According to Esther Quesada  Tyrrell's text in her book Hummingbirds, Their Life and  Behaviour", the Anna's do  breed principally during the  winter and early spring with the  abundance of blossoms and  insects that prevail afler the  rainy season.  Such is Ihe climate in California, but certainly not Ihis far  north unless we have an exceptionally warm winter.  So, despite advice from the  experts, I have removed Ihe  feeder and will fill it again in  March when the first hummingbird comes desperately looking  for nourishment when there are  no blossoms from which ihey  can feed naturally.  Thank yon Brock for pointing oul other people's opinions  on Ihis matter.  ll shows thai somebody reads  my column!  by Lyn Mees  There's a surprise coming lo  the hall, so keep your eyes  peeled everylime you go by.

"Remember to keep your  wrists and fingers loose," says  Bradley Hunt, the art instructor  for this workshop on northwest  coast Native art, from  Ihe front of the room.         Nolice the movement in the lines, he  tells the group. The  strokes of the pencil  should be fluid, like  the motions of a  dancer.  His hands trace  patterns in the air, -  demonstrating   the  technique, while the teens look  over each other's papers.  Hunt begins to put the finishing touches on today's design at  the blackboard, tracing the shape  of an eyelid around an eye.  This workshop is just one  small part of life at Camp Salish,  which now continues through the  second part of its two-week program.  Twenly-three young men and  women between 13 and 18 years  old have gathered at Camp Byng  in Roberts Creek to take part in  the third year of the camp, run by  the non-profit Native Cultural  and Theatre Arts Society. Not all  of Ihem are of Native background, but the focus for Ihe  camp Is on learning aboul Native  culture and traditions.  In the first week of the camp,  workshops ranged from drum-  making with Sam Saul, storytelling wilh Sechelt elder Gilbert  Joe, acting wilh Sam Bob and a  class in Native Soulh American  percussion instruments with  Joseph Danza. Vince Slogan, a  medicine man and Native healer,  led a workshop on the meaning  of the medicine wheel, an important part of First Nations spirituality.  Annie Frazier-Henry, a local  First Nations writer and artist, is  Ihe driving force behind Camp  Salish.: ���' ��� -'���������''<  ��� "ll was a vision of hers locre-  ate something for youth," says  Donnelly Rhodes, president of  the society's board of directors.  "There are millions of camps  for kids who are in trouble," says  Rhodes. The focus of this camp  isn't on problems, but on what  it's possible to achieve.  "It's a kind of magical experience," he continues. "...They get  'It's a kind of  magical  experience'  ���Donnelly Rhodes  exposed to people who have  been successful in iheir fields, ll  has an incredible effect on  them."  Among Ihose taking part in  the camp Ihis week will be  renowned Haida artist Robert  Davidson, who will also perform  in Sechelt Friday evening with  his Rainbow Creek Dancers.  Artists    donate       their  lime  to  the  camp, receiving only  travelling expenses  and a small honorarium, "which some-  limes could be a  pouch of tobacco that  we've prayed over,"  says Rhodes.  ��������� For Hunt, who's  been involved in the  camp for two years now, the  workshops offer a chance for  teens lo be exposed to Native  culture - something he says he  didn't have much of when he  was growing up.  Back then, "the culture was  pretty well pushed aside," he  says. "...I wasn't encouraged to  do Native art."  "A lot of kids say 'I can't  draw,'" he comments. "...They  find out they can."  "Mine wasn't thai good when  I first started either."  Rose Peters of Duncan said  she's enjoyed the camp so far,  particularly learning about the  smudge ceremony: "Nobody  laughed or anything." What will  she remember about the camp?  "I guess, caring," she says.  Hunt says he hopes the  teenagers will also take away a  bit of the culture when they finish their workshops this week.  Members of Ihe Utile Ravens native dance group work out in a  NIA technique body movement class Thursday at Camp Salish.

Joel Johnstone photo  Building the Arts project wraps up  After forty weeks, the Building the Arts project is complete,  leaving behind newly renovated  buildings and a legacy of art all,  along the Sunshine Coast.  Sponsored by the Sunshine  Coast Community Futures  Association, five arts organizations and a community  playschool benefited from the  project with major facility  improvements and renovations.  The $128,000 program was  funded as a Job Development  project through the federal  office of Human Resources  Development Canada.  Sharon Anderchek, manager  of the Community Futures program on the Coasl, said the project was a success, employing a  crew of five to learn carpentry  skills while assisting the arts  groups to achieve their goals.  Anderchek gave credit to  Ray Audet, who provided the  project management expertise,  and Rick McGuire, who handled  Ihe administration and overall  project planning.  Starting in Gibsons on the  restoration of the Women's  Institute Hall, the work crew  progressed up the Sunshine  Coast to complete  a major addition ���������  and renovation to  the Pender Harbour School of  Music.  "The arts in  Pender will be  enhanced with the  opening of the  new facility overlooking the harbour," said  Anderchek, in a  press release to ������_  the Coast News.  She added larger audiences  will be able to enjoy the spectacular scenery of Pender Harbour in a "bright and airy facility" with a large, outdoor deck.  The Harbour Gallery was  also improved to allow year-  round use of the facility. On the  same site as the gallery is the  Serendipity Playschool. This  "The arts in  Pender will be  enhanced with  the opening of  the new facility  overlooking  the harbour'  -Shardn Anderchek  building was renovated to make  it accessible for wheelchairs.  Anderchek said a bid to build  a school for the arts at Rockwood Centre, in  ���~~~^~ Sechelt was lost  due to federal  funding cut-backs  to the community  futures program.  However,  funding was  available for the  work crew to  construct a storage shed adjacent  to the festival  .pavilion on. the        Rockwood site.  The Festival of  Ihe Written Arts now has a  secure facility for the storage of  outdoor equipment, Anderchek  said.  The Arts Centre in Sechelt  also benefited from Ihe project  with newly paved laneways  winding through their gardens.  The wide variety of projects  enabled the crew to learn foot  ings and foundations, framing,  roofing, electrical, plumbing  and finishing.  Job search techniques were  also included in the seven-  month program.  The project wrapped up Friday, Aug. 12 with a reception  for all participants at the newly  completed Pender Harbour  School of Music in Madeira  Park.

Son  Jack Inglis with his water taxi  operations and the younger son  Eric Inglis in the movement of  freightby land and water.  There was a definite need after  the war to improve and expand  water transport in Howe Sound  and Jack recalls he had contemplated applying for a water franchise to carry passengers between  Gibsons Landing and Horseshoe  Bay on a scheduled basis.  "An old fiend of mine, Mr.  Justice Sidney Smith, offered to  go to bat for me but, reluctantly, I  never proceeded with a formal  application as politics, maneuvering and pressure tactics were  abounding as Union Steamships  was pondering its future operations in Howe Sound."  Finally, when it was all  "saucered and blown on" Gordon  Ballentine and George Frith after  months of public hearings and  negotiations were granted a  scheduled passenger franchise  between Fisherman's Cove and  Gibsons Landing known as the  Sea Bus Lines.  Sea Bus Lines did a yeoman  service in transporting passengers  beginning in November 1945 but  in the long run it proved inadequate. Then along came Gibson  Bros. Logging company who purchased Gordon Ballentine's  majority (55 per cent) interest,  moved the franchise to Horseshoe  Bay and began regular passenger  service to Gibsons Landing with  the stout navy converted Fairmile  "MV Machigonne. Aboard were  skippers Gillespie and the legendary John Bunyan along with  the well known local John Atlee  as deckhand. The service offered  as many as three round trips daily  increasing to as many as five trips  in the summer heat and tourist  season.  Eventually Gibson Bros, sold  their franchise - with government  intervention playing a part in the  scheme of things - and what fol-  l&ta (*oved a rather interesting  leading up to a car ferry service.  For some time, Eric Inglis had  been involved in freight movement both in Gibsons Landing  area also moving Champion and  White barge service to Vancouver. Later on when the firm  ceased operations to Howe  Sound, Inglis joined forces with  Dick Fitchett (Gibson Building  Supplies) and continued a barge  service to Vancouver using Gulf  of Georgia tugs and a barge on  renlal agreement.  Eric readily recalls, "I had my  trucks around Gibsons, the first  one was a 1929 Model A Ford  one ton I bought from Harry  Smith's older brother Chuck,  increased later to three trucks and  a logging iruck converted from a  heavy army vehicle. Right up to  the start of the car ferry in 1951  Dick Fitchett and I moved much  freight between Vancouver and  Gibsons Landing, both ways.  With the start of Ihe car ferry I  formed Vancouver-Gibsons  Freight Lines, built a warehouse  in Gibsons and never looked  back."  Eric Inglis points out, "Joe  Higss had (old me his fath from  Ihe main deck up, father Thomas  Leonard Higgs and brother  William York Higgs, both no  strangers lo water transport and  tugs as well as operators of the  Nanaimo - Gabriola ferry, were in  the running for car ferry service  franchise."  Al this time, Captain A.N.  Peabody had just sold hit Puget  Sound Navigation Ferry system  to Ihe State of Washington  Lo and behold, a deal was  struck with Captain Peabody who  had retained five ferries from his  sale to the slate, to move Ihem to  Canadian registry, agreeing to  advance funds to the government  (said to be a million dollars) to  build and improve the roads in  question.  Captain Peabody and his  Black Ball Canadian had the franchise and was soon in business in  Howe Sound with his five vessels  MV Quillayute, Bainbridge, City  of Sacramento (Kahloke), MV  Chinook II and a lesser ferry  Malahat.  Initially called the Black Ball  Ferries, MV Quillayute was master of the Jervis Inlet run.

In  1954, the City of Sacramento was  completely refitted from the main  deck up, renamed MV Kahloke  and placed on the Horseshoe  Bay-Nanaimo (Departure Bay)  run and later added the sleek near  new Chinnook II.  I till some years later William  I Andrew Cecil Bennett, the  'Premier of British  Columbia took the bull by the  horns and purchased all of the  Black Ball system for $6,795,487  lock stock and barrel with the  opposition parties raising the roof  over the outlandish price, but  there it stood.  With the broadening onslaught  of increased car ferry service in  Howe Sound, Union Steamships  ceased service to the area in 1951  although Gibsons Landing harbour master Harry Smith recalls  they did have a small fleet of passenger launches but they were not  used on the West Howe Sound  route.  In effect, Union Steamship  was on the wane and rumours  were abounding that loo many on  the board of directors were feathering their nests while another  reliable source maintained Union  had not acted to replace and  renew ships and tonnage in the  decade before the war.  Another source said Union's  eventual demise in 1959 (iheir  remaining vessels sold to Northland Navigation) was that the  hurried purchase and refitting of  Castle class corvettes acquired  after the war was far too costly.  So Ihe champion of coastal passenger and freight service was  now history.  Harry Smith had Ihis to say  about Union Steamships: "I was  their ticket agent after the war  and I know personally Oerald  Rushton a pioneer Union employ  ee who wrote the two books on  Union Steamships, Whistle up the  Inlet and Echoes of the Whistle.  He was my boss!"  Just recently Gerald Rushton  passed away at the age of 95  years.  And Wally Peterson, all he  wants is the British Columbia  Ferry Corporation to name a ferry  after Gibsons.  After all, the first car ferry in  Howe Sound was suited in Gibsons.  Pioneer Chuck Winegarden in  1951, a resident for some 60  years was married to one of the .  daughters of founder George Gib  son, proudly cut the tape inaugurating the service from Gibsons  wharf along with his daughter  Gertie Corlett on this gala occasion.  Chuck, buried in Gibaona Pioneer Park, was a preemptor of  land at the top of the Mil, an old  time logger who waa a top notch  water dowser with the willow  stick, never left the Landing very  often, except, for sure, the  Orangemens' parade in New  Westminster every July 12.

The team won all its games in  the zones the previous weekend  and joined with nine other zone  winning teams from around the  province to determine the  provincial champs.  The 10 teams were divided  inlo two sides of five teams.  Each side played a round robin  with the top two teams from each  side moving onto the semi-final  games. On the side wilh Gibsons  were teams from Westside  (Kelowna), Richmond, Enderby,  and Chilliwack. On the other  side were teams from Mission,  Newton, Burnaby, Ridge Meadows and Revelstoke.  In the first game, Westside  gained the lead in the first inning  and Gibsons never caught up losing to Westside 7 lo 4.  The second game saw Gibsons come on strong. After 6  innings the team had a 10 run  lead over Richmond who scored  no runs. The mercy rule was in  effect and the game was over.  The third game against Enderby  was really a full team effort  game with Gibsons winning 7 to  6.  The fourth game against  Chilliwack was a high-hitting  game with Chilliwack obtaining  11 base hits and Gibsons obtaining nine base hits. Gibsons who  won 14 to 13.  After the round-robin games,  Westside placed first and Gibsons second on Side A and Rev-  Back Left to Right: Gary Johnson, Aaron Hately, Dine Ruck, Grant Lllley, Scott Bishop, Nick  Mackay, Brian Swanson, Mike Sopow, Jeremy Ruck, Stan Sopow, Harley Redfcrn, Rod Lucas.

The semi-final  game between Gibsons and Revelstoke was another tough game  for Gibsons. At the end of five  innings, the score was 2 -2.  Grant Lilley pitching the seventh  inning struck out the first three  batters to end the game with a  score of Gibsons 5, Revelstoke 2.  The final game pitted Gibsons  against the only team we losl to -  Westside - who beat Newton in  their semi-final.  Westside was surprised to  encounter a different team lhan  they firsl met. Gibsons was up  for this game, spirits were high  and Westside had problems batting against out first pitcher Jody  Underwood who struck out six of  15 batten allowing two base hits  and one run in Ihe first four  innings. At the end of six  innings, Gibsons led Westside 8  to 3. During the top of the seventh, Westside obtained a double  play on Gibsons and won an  appeal over one of our runners  missing a base. This encouraged  the Westside team. Their first  batter scored a base hit from our  pitcher Grant Lilley. Their second batter hit to Ryan Swanson  (SS) who threw the ball to Blair  Chapman (2nd) for the tag at second on the runner, then Blair  threw to Nick Mackay (1st) for  the out on (he batter completing  the double play.  Batter number three came up  and after full count with one  extra foul ball, Grant struck the  batter out and the game was over  wilh the Gibsons Lions winning  the BCMBA Bantam Double AA  Provincial Championships for  1994.

North America ��� The 24th  Annual American Junior Quarter Horse Association World  Championship in Fort Worth,  Texas.  In two events ��� Hunter  Under Saddle and Western  Horsemanship ��� the young  rider placed seventh and third  place respectively. MacDonald  competed in both events against  over 90 other riders. The event  took place the week of Aug. 6  to 13.  MacDonald competed with  her horse Dynamic Duplication  ��� an eight-year-old brown  gelding.  Last year was MacDonald's  first time competing in the  world championship. While she  didn't pick up a prize, she did  gain the experience and confidence to attend this year's show  and place in the top ten, said  MacDonald's mother, Wendy  MacDonald.  The world-championship  Jenny MacDonald  competition is an invitational  event. Approximately 1,700  competitors, aged 19 and under,  competed for 30 world championship titles as well as prizes.  Each competitor in the event  was required to earn a predetermined number of points at  American Quarterhorse Association-approved shows earlier in  the year before coming to  Texas.  Wendy MacDonald said her  daughler will continue to compete in other equestrian events  throughout the rest of the riding  season.  She has three shows in B.C.  and Washington in September.  In October she will travel to  Columbus, Ohio, and, in  November, to Oklahama City.  In an earlier interview, MacDonald said she has been riding  quarterhorses since she was 12-  years-old.  She said she prefers the  breed to others because of the  animal's versatility in a variety  of events including jumping,  racing and showing in both  English and western riding  styles.  |l(  SUSSEX  REALTY  The TOP SELLING OFFICE  N   GIBSONS  (MUL7PL��/jS7����L��4DER��SuU��S(rHO��CS4ft)C��l^  Notice Board  Oitoiai tvnU Ml bt .fd.lt* wesalMy  We totrve Ihe right lo edit submissions tot brevity  All submissions should refer to non-profit events  of genuine communily intereii  Hems will be listed Ihree weeks prior lo the evenl  DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS WEDNESDAY NOON FOR MONDAY DISTRIBUTION  MONDAY, AUOUST 2t  Fibromyalgia Aisoclttlon of I.C.

Kayaking the "Chuck":  adventure or stupidity?  by Keith Thirkell  Long time Egmont fisherman  Billy Griffith can'l understand  why sane people would go near  the Skookumchuck rapids with  kayaks.  "Only fools and people who  want to die young are crazy  enough lo get in small boats and  play around in those rapids; just  iasl year someone died doing it."  Griffith says even large boats  with tons of power slay clear of  the rapids when they'rerunning.  "I've seen huge gravel barges go  by upside down and as far as I  know there's three barges  that've gone down all together.  "People who fool around oul  there are asking for trouble; the  water underneath is totally  unpredictable and sometimes  moves in the opposite direction  from the water on top."  But it's exactly this lure of  danger and excitement that is  making the Skookumchuck a hot  spot for adventure-seeking  tourists from all over the world.  David Cooks, from Shasta  California, who calls himself an  'outdoor educator,' says shooting the Skookumchuck rapids is  right up there with some of Ihe  best Whitewater kayak rivers in  North America. And Cooks  should know... He's shot most of  them. Cooks along wilh Iwo  other Americans and two New  Zealanders spent a couple of  days lasl week  testing them  selves against the juggernaut of  tidal water that surges through  the Skookumchuk.  "We read about these rapids  in a Whitewater guide book and  it was irresistible. It's a lot different than a river. I think the  conditions of the water are more  uncertain than a river but probably safer," Cooks remarked.  "And with every incoming  tide the water and wave conditions are different; it's greal.  You can get some amazing len  fool standing waves and Iota of  boils and holes lhal could suck a  boat down in seconds." But  Cooks says safely is paramount  and they are prepared. Cooks is  a professional guide and doesn't  recommend inexperienced  kayakers go any where near the  'Chuck'.  Cooks says the chuck is a  jewel and he'll be back with lots  of friends. And of coarse that  bodes well economically for  Egmont and the Coast. "I bet we  each spent a couple of hundred  (J.S. dollars up here," Cooks  remarked. And the day before  he said a similar group of German kayakers did the same.  So it may not be what seasoned seafaring sailors like Griffith would call sport, but it's safe  to say, the world's adventure  tourism community is finding  oul about the dangerous and  mystique-shrouded Skookumchuck.  -   ���- r -   -   - - -  ,. -  - v  ____________ Coast News, August 29, 1994  Industrial      AUTOMOTIVE        Marine  PARTS & SUPPLIES  A101 SUPPLY ltd.  1061 Hwy. 101, Gibsons, B.C. 886-8101  V     ____ <���*>  Sal.8-b.Sun.1oV  SECHELT RADIATORS   ���1 CtaMjU 'Ming St/atem Semite Cenfre  Wl Kipili le Rrpiw'r ihiVHr��uVf:��ii\,V(;ii Vaiiki "N  | AUTOS TRUCKS TRACTOR* INDUSTRIAL MARINE  New, Unit * Krhnill ��� lick up ll Delivery J  loir. ��� Sat.

Thirteen year old Kristen Horvath of Gibsons  was the winner last week in The Province Trivial  Pursuit Contest, winning for himself a portable  colour TV and the latest edition of the Trivial Pursuit Game.  10 YEARS AGO  The regional board of directors expressed concern at its meeting of August 23 that the provincial government had altered its approach to funding planning programs resulting in a shortfall for  the Sunshine Coast of $11,000 to $25,000.  Last Thursday, during the course of the senior  men's regular play, saw a hole-in-one for Jim  Gilchrist on Number 8. This was the first ever for  Jim after 40 years of golf - so the rest of us can  take heart!  15 YEARS AGO  Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club proposes that the regional board should turn over 45  acres of Cliff Gilker Park for the expansion of  golfing facilities.  Two lightening strikes start a small forest fire  in the Ruby Lake vicinity. A five man crew from  Pender Harbour Forest Service brought the fire  under control the same day.  25 YEARS AGO  Sechelt Waterworks claims the regional dislricl  has no right to expropriate its water system.  Principal T.G. Elwood informs parents of high  school students by letter of the need for Elphinstone secondary school to go on shift system  because the facilities are inadequate.  35 YEARS AGO  The contract has been let for the construction  of the new RCMP building in Gibsons.  The Coast News carried a picture of the Johnson twins of Sechelt, Ron and Roger, who were  awarded medals for service with Ihe United  Nations Expeditionary Force in the Gaza strip.  The Johnson boys are the sons of magistrate  Andrew Johnson.  45 YEARS AGO  Unfortunately 45 years ago is not available this  week.  Moth*r ol 2, ages 3 6 5, will  babysit my homa, f/t.

In a June 16 letter from Art Charbonneau, Minister of Education, to Board  Chairman Pal Stuart, Charbonneau said, "The  grant adjustment will be deducted from your  regular June 30, 1994 payment. I understand  the adjustment may cause the district to incur  a 93/94 operating deficit If this is the case,  approval is granted for the board to incur a  93/94 operating deficit in the amount of  $250,000 on condilion that the deficit is  retired by the end of Ihe 1995/96 fiscal year."  Charbonneau also advised Stuart that the district could appeal the audit.  Both Olsen and Strand said the union  negotiating team which agreed to the June  lay offs as an 'eleventh hour' measure, were  unaware that the board had approval to carry  Ihe deficit until the end of the 95/96 fiscal  year.  When asked why the district laid off workers and cut back hours when they didn't have  to this year, treasurer Tim Anderson said,  "We were being fiscally responsible."  Anderson acknowledged the district has  appealed the audit and that the appeal will be  conducted by an independent consultant early  in September. He denied rumours that the  board or administration had received a 12 per  cent increase this year. "There is a lol of  sabre-rattling going on out there." He also  thought binding arbitration would be a 'lose-  lose' situation for everyone.  Both Strand and Olsen feel that some district trustees are unaware of the total scope of  problems in the stalled talks.  Olsen said, "A lay-off is only justified if  there isn'l enough work, and that isn't the  problem here. We're not even asking wage  parity with other districts, who have settled  their contracts without these kinds of problems. Burnaby gol 5.8% over two years and  their starling wages are $1.50 to $3.50 more  per hour than we have here. Most full-time  SETA's here don't make more than $19,000 a  year, and this summer 10 of them had Iheir  working hours reduced from 50 hours a  month to 20. We're worried that cuts like this  will mean a decline in service."

About 10 lo 15 people attend  the clinic each week - most of  them young women in their  teens or early twenties.  In comparison, the nearby  Howe Sound area - which  doesn't have a Planned Parenthood program - has almost  twice the leen pregnancy rate of  ihe Sunshine Coast.  Still, "I think the fact that we  have a teen pregnancy rate  means we have more work to  do," says Martiquet. "...It's  almost one woman in every  classroom at school."  Although the government  report recommends birth control pills be available without a  prescription, Martiquet says  he's not sure that's a good idea,  because of possible side effects.  He agrees with the report, however, that rising costs of contraceptives are a problem for many  women, and efforts are needed  to subsidize them.  Martiquet says he also thinks  condoms should be available  free in high school washrooms.  The issue of condom  machines in high schools has  been a controversial one in the  community, because the attitude still exists on the part of  some parents that "our kids  aren't having sex," says Martiquet.  More recently, though,  there's been a growing awareness thai "when kids say they  want condoms in their high  school washrooms, there's a  reason for lhat."  Strike to continue  at Lafarge Concrete  by Darah Hansen  Nothing's changed in the  strike al Egmont's Lafarge Concrete Ltd.  The 20 workers who walked  off the job in mid May of this  year are still on the picket lines  outside the plant.  "Il's not going  well," Bill Baron,  representative for  the International  Union of Operating  Engineers, said in  reference to Ihe  talks       between  Lafarge officials        and Ihe  striking  employees.  Baron declined detailed comment on the stale of current  negotiations. He said the union  and company officials have met  several times since the strike  bul to no avail.  "I'm less than enthusiastic  (about the talks)," Baron said.  He said a strategy is in the  works to get a deal worked out  but refused lo discuss what  those plans included.  Phone calls to a Lafarge  company spokesman John Van  Koll were not returned by press  time.  'It's not going  well'  ���Bill Baron  The Lafarge workers began      seniority.  their strike action in mill May,  1994 after working without a  contract for 18 months.  Their union has been asking  the company lo maintain the  conditions of their previous collective   agreement,   which  expired   Jan.   1,        1993.  But Lafarge is  looking to change  its operations at the  plant   and   those  changes, according  to   Baron,   have  employees fearing a  ______   considerable  decrease in their annual take home pay.  In an earlier interview, the  Coast News reported the primary issues in Ihe Lafarge labour  action were around overtime  and the re-classification of jobs.  At that lime, union shop  steward Tony Nesman said the  company had proposed a 24  hour work schedule with no  overtime on weekends, except  after eight hours.  He said Lafarge was also  considering upgrading job  requirements for unskilled  labour - a move which would  directly   impact   employee  ATTENTION  STUDENTS!
