The various styles of yesteryear were donned by students of Gibsons Elementary School Thursday  in recognition of National Heritage Week, Feb. 21-27. Joel Johnstone photo  Single mom praises new Sechelt housing project  by Darah Hansen  There will be no more logging  in Ihe Chapman and Gray Creek  watersheds if Ihe Sunshine Coasl  Regional District (SCRD) has ils  way at a public hearing Monday  (Feb. 28).  "The number one value is  waler. Everylhing else musl  defer lo Ihe qualily of water,"  said Roberls Creek director Brett  McGillivray at Thursday night's  (Feb. 24) regional board meeting.  Al lhal same meeling, SCRD  board members voted 6-2 to  adopt a formal stand against Ihe  recommendations of the newly  released Integrated Watershed  Management Plan (IWMP) and  asked for a ban on all logging  activities in the watershed until  water qualily and quantity have  shown improvement.  The draft copy of the IWMP,  designed to maintain and  improve water quality in the  Coast's regional watersheds,  supports continued logging in the  area in combination with continuous monitoring of water quality.  The extensive document was  developed after nearly four years  of discussion between representatives from the SCRD; provincial Ministries of Forests and the  Environment; the Department of  Fisheries and Oceans; and International Forest Products (Interfor) and Canadian Forest Products (Canfor).  At Thursday's meeting, the  SCRD also voted in favour of  removing the Ministry of Forests  from the watershed management  team, putting in its place the  Sechelt Indian Band which was  omitted as a participant in the  IWMP process.  Support on the regional board  for Ihe IWMP document Thursday came from Gibsons mayor  Eric Small and Pender Harbour  representative Jane Reid.  Bolh directors argued lhat a  more "balanced approach" be  taken by Ihe board.  "I siill Ihink jobs are of vital  importance to us," said Small,  taking into consideration the  employment of loggers working  in Ihe area, while Reid asked that  more faith be put in the document's creators.  "I think every person who  helped develop Ihe IWMP recognizes (the importance of waler  quality)," she said.  And with continued monitoring of the watershed, "I believe  logging can continue without  sacrificing water."  But other board members said  those arguments are not good  enough.  "It's very easy to say we can  live with loggers and monitor the  (impact)," said McGillivray, but  "Ihis board has been let down  more times because we've got  this attitude, 'Oh we can live  with that.'"  He called the current situation  in the watersheds "desperate,*' in  reference to the several mud  slides which have occurred in the  area, a direct result of logging  and road-building activities.  The last such slide was  recorded in early January when  siltation occurred in Chapman  Creek after a logging road collapsed in heavy rains.  McGillivray further dismissed  the issue of employment.  "This is land-based logging  on 10-hectare clear-cuts. Tliere  are not a lot of jobs to be lost,"  he said.  turn to page 2  by Don Anderson  More than 130 residents of the  Sunshine Coast have applied for  residency at the 21-unit government-funded affordable housing  project in Sechelt.  And Coast Housing Society  chairman Nancy MacLarty says  that is only a small percentage of  the number expected to seek  accommodation in the development approved for I.OS acres of  land al Trail Avenue and Binnacle Streel. "Nothing like ihis has  ever been done on the Coast  before and it took bloody long  enough," MacLarty said.  "I imagine more people will  come out of the woodwork."  After three years of planning,  the society received approval  from council in mid-January for  development of the project. The  configuration of the complex was  recently changed to include two  four-bedroom units to go along  with one-, two- and three-bedroom units. The society's board  of directors for the society will be  meeting with Terra Housing Consultants Ltd. March 12 to determine the criteria for applicants.  Preliminary application forms  are available from the Sunshine  Coast Community Services Sociely. The form asks for general  information such as name, place  of residence, occupation, marital  status, reason for wanting to  move and annual income.  Once the form is filled out,  MacLarty said residents can be  assured that their names will be  included in the primary list of  applicants.  If they are accepted, rents of  the various units will be determined by income. Typically, 30  per cent of a family's gross  income will go toward rent.  'Nothing like this has  ever been alone on the  Coast'  -Nancy MacLarty  The most significant obstacle  encountered by the society in  receiving approval for its project  was proving to the provincial  government that there was a  need.  "No one seems to know where  Ihe Sunshine Coast is and thai  there is a need," MacLarty said.  "An assistant deputy minister  wrote to me saying they were  going to be doing six unit allocations in Squamish right close to  us. That shows how much they  know where the hell we are."  MacLarty would like to see a  program of social housing implemented on Ihe Coast wherein  developers would share the costs  of developing projects similar to  Ihe one slated for Trail Ave.  To one preliminary applicant  who wished to remain nameless,  the prospect of affordable housing couldn't be more timely.  "The whole thing with me is  that housing is just too expensive,  it's pretty obvious," said the  woman, a single mother of two  girls aged three and seven.  "I'm living in a duplex for  $730 a month and that sucks up  three quarters of my income and  then I just got a hydro bill for  $400." The Gibsons resident lives  on a combination of welfare,  child support, the GST credit and  BC sales tax credit ��� about  $1,400 a month.  How does she do it?  "You just have to be real careful. You don't go anywhere and  you don't have a car and you  don't do anything," she said. "My  only real luxury here is the dog."  Although she would like to  work, it is unlikely that kind of  income would put her in any better shape economically, she  added.  Warm weather starting  to stir bear population  by Don Anderson  Unseasonably warm temperatures are causing problems  among the bear population of  ihe Sunshine Coasl.  The BC Conservation Office  has been forced to immobilize  iwo black bears since December, which might be attributed lo  temperatures slaying above whal  is normal for the time of the  year.  "It's really uncommon for the  bears because normally ihey are  hibernating," said Mark Hayden,  senior conservation officer for  the coastal region.  "We've had such a warm  winter up until recently thai it is  probably why the bears are out  foraging." Conservation authorities were forced lo Iranquilize a  bear rummaging Ihrough a  garbage dumpster in Pender  Harbour earlier Ihis month. The  bear was relocated to the inner  part of the Coasl.  Hayden recommends people  be more aware of the bear population and avoid leaving any  garbage oul which may serve lo  attract the animals.  "A lol of the stuff lhat we  throw away is very attractive lo  bears that are looking for a  meal," he said. "Bears are an  animal that are opportunists and  obviously ihey don'l have lo  work very hard in an area where  Ihere is lots of garbage."  Sightings of cougars are also  on the rise, bul Hayden was not  sure if il was due to Ihe weather.  "There are a number of reasons why Ihey might come  down into areas closer to human  habitation" he said. "They've  always occupied the Sunshine  Coast as far as we know, and  there are certainly a number of  small mammals (thai attract  cougars)."  Conservation  officer Doug  Pierce  expects to be  on the trail  ofcougars  and bears In  the near  future.  file photo  In some cases, cougars may  be blamed for the disappearance  of cats and small dogs left to  roam outside in subdivisions  throughout Ihe year.  "Cougars will feed quile happily on those, loo," Hayden said.  The lack of snow on ihe  lower elevations of the Coasl  also help lo make those areas  more attractive lo cougars,  which may also explain (he  increase in sightings, he added.  But residents shouldn't worry  about Ihe chances of confronting  a cougar face-to-face; conflict  between humans and cougars is  extremely rare.  "A cougar can be a problem  for human beings; normally they  stay away from humans unless  they are in pretty desperate  stales," he said. "The main Ihing  is to be alert for signs of a  cougar... if you do see an animal, move wilh caution away  from il."

Jod Johnstone  photo  Coast school budget heading for red  Legal hills and long-term illness arc pushing Ihe school bud-  gel inlo the red Ihis year.  "It's going lo gel a little tense  whether we can balance the budget," secretary-treasurer Tim  Anderson told trustees at lasl  Tuesday's regular board meeling.  The biggest costs to Ihe district have been legal bills arising  from on-going litigation with a  school district staff member. The  process has increased district  administration spending nearly  Legal fees cited as major problem  two per cent from last year, said  Anderson.  The district had budgeted  $110,000 lo cover legal bills for  the year based on what's happened in years pasl, Anderson  said. But already the district has  paid out $90,000 and Anderson  expects those bills lo exceed Ihe  budgeted amount.  Also inflating the administrative portion of the budget is an  additional $19,000 paid by Ihe  district to former superintendent  Clifford Smith covering Ihe first  two monlhs of the school year.  Anderson said Smith was paid  the money to cover long-term  sick leave before insurance coverage kicked in.  Meanwhile, teachers' long-  term illness has pushed up the  instructional budget by 1.3 per  cenl over lasl year. Anderson  said an unprecedented number of  teachers are claiming long-term  sick-leave payments Ihis year,  absorbing $250,000 of a total  budget of $290,000.  Anderson said he could nol  predict if the amount of long-  term sick-leave taken by teachers  would continue to rise over Ihe  rest of the school season.  ���st, .   I ��� -.

Coast News, February 28,1994  news  Burn application provokes concern  by Don Anderson  A local excavator's application to burn commercial refuse  northeast of Sechelt has a group  of Tuwanek residents fuming.  The application, submitted by  Stockwell and Sons Ltd. in  Sechell, calls for Ihe creation of a  burn pit on lands northeast of  Sechelt. Residents of the Porpoise Properties subdivision are  concerned the burn will affect  their heallh and, potentially,  damage the environment.  "What we see here, potentially, is a brand new business and it  is called storage and waste disposal of land-clearing debris,"  said resident Karen Renfrew.  Renfrew has penned a letter  with fellow resident Lin Buckler  expressing Iheir dismay aboul Ihe  application.  "I can'l imagine issuing an  open burning permit so close to  Ihe growing community," they  wrile. "Someone has lo be  responsible and liable if a permit  of such great consequences is  allowed."  Renfrew expects the burn, if  approved, will affect 35 homes  within .8 km (a half mile) of Ihe  proposed pit, located about 1.2  km from the regional district  landfill site. The length of Ihe  burns will depend on Ministry of  Environment standards.  "We see Ihis not only as our  issue, we see ihis as an issue that  reflects on the community as a  whole and Sechelt as a whole,"  said Renfrew, a resident of the  area for Ihe pasl year and a half.  "The smoke and ash do not disappear into thin air. The whole of  Ihe Sechelt Inlet could potentially  be affected by this open-burning  permit."  The prospect of a commercial  burn site has received little support from Rosina Giles, chair of  the municipal environment committee.  "We have no control over  where the smoke is going to go,"  Giles said, adding thai it is likely  thai smoke could creep into Ihe  town centre, depending on the  size of the burn.  "It's a business for people lo  bring their waste there to be  burned. Il's a commercial venture. "And it doesn't appear that  Ihe municipality has any means  of preventing the application  from being approved, aside from  joining the letter-writing campaign initialed by residents.  "Environmentally, we do not  approve of Ihis operation going  inlo place," Giles said.  According to Dr. Paul Martiquet, studies have shown that  wood smoke has contributed to a  rise in Ihe number of recorded  incidents of respiratory disease.  Wood smoke particulates resulting from incomplete combustion  of the product being burned  increases chances of bronchitis.  It may also affect people who  Developer Ray Stockwell.  have emphysema or chronic lung  disease. Although Martiquel's  comments against burning have  targeted wood stoves and fireplaces, he said commercial slash  burning is just as much of a  heallh hazard, if not more.  "There is a lot more smoke in  open burning. In terms of the  amount of pollution produced,  you are looking at much more  pollution from open burning as  file photo  opposed to residential burning."  Martiquet said Ihis potential  burn may further affect the health  of seniors and children living  within the range of smoke likely  to be produced.  "Let's look to alternatives to  burning this, if you are going to  transport it, why don't you just  landfill it or transport it to one of  the chipping companies?" he  said.  Tuwanek-Interfor compromise reached  by Don Anderson  Tuwanek residents' fight  against an application by Interfor  to discharge contaminants inlo  Ihe air has been settled through  compromise.  International Forest Products  (Interfor) has been given permission from BC Environment to  proceed with Iwo burns per year  of 48 continuous hours, each  maximum totalling 500 cubic  metres of wood debris.  The decision does not entirely  satisfy the wishes of the  Tuwanek Ratepayers Association  but the group is hoping il will  signal Ihe eventual end of  widespread slash burning.  "Yes; il is a compromise,"  said Linda Williams, president of  the association. "While we are  nol entirely happy with the  potential of four days of burning,  we feel that we will be able to  keep a close eye on it and hopefully within a year they will start  developing alternate methods."  Interfor had originally applied  to burn more than 2,500 cubic  metres per year in October 1993.  As it stands, the  company is currently investigating  alternate means of  burning to reduce  the impact on the  environment and  health of Tuwanek  residents.  The company  has nol burned r -  wood debris in - -  Sechelt since the spring of 1991.  Mike Bell, district manager  for Interfor, said attempts have  been made to reduce the amount  of debris created at the dryland  sort.  "We're not doing  this because we  like yelling and  screaming'  -Linda Williams  through a number of measures,  including increasing the manufacture of wood fibre within its  logging areas.  "In the past, I will be Ihe first  one to admit that it wasn't monitored  well   and  "���"���-"   maintained well,"  Bell said. "It was  above standard for  the day, but it was  certainly not to a  standard that we  like   to  see   in  1994."  According to  i Williams,'previous  burns undertaken  by the company posed consider-  able'heallh hazards lo Ihe residents of Tuwanek, who have  been fighting burning of contaminants for 20 years.  It's just totally gross. The  That has been accomplished     fires have been huge," she said.  "It was a real imposition on that  community."  Hopefully, she added, residents will see an end to the  plumes of smoke rising from  across Gray Creek.  "The fact that we've requested it be limited to a year is lo  keep reminding them that we are  expecting them to move to an  alternate means of disposal and  no burning," she said.  "We're not doing this because  we like yelling and screaming.  We want this change; we feel  that it is better for everybody  including the company."  Bell said the processes the  company has investigated carry  considerable costs bul are essential to meeting new environmental standards for burning.  "The standard has changed;  we have lo change with it. Those  who don't won't be in business."  Sechelt Band water  cut-off postponed  by Darah Hansen  The district of Sechelt has  been given ils second reprieve in  one month following a threat  made by the Sechelt Indian  Band to cut off Ihe town's main  water supply.  Band chief Garry Feschuk  announced Thursday (Feb. 24)  the deadline for the proposed  cut-off of the Sechelt walerline  has been extended to March 15.  The extension was granted  after Aboriginal affairs minister  John Cashore agreed to meet  wilh the Sechelt chief and council March 10 to discuss the  band's outstanding land claims.  On the negotiation table will  be Ihe issue of the water  pipeline, which has been operating without authority on band  lands since (he early 1970s.  The Sechelts are also hoping  lo discuss iheir comprehensive  land claims at next month's  meeling. The band is pushing  the government lo review ils  claim outside the bureaucratic  provincial Treaty Commission.  Feschuk said Thursday Ihe  band has had little conlacl with  Cashore since meeling with his  aide, Randy Brant, Feb. 12. He  said he was uncertain of what  position the minister will take  on the land claims issues.  In a previous interview with  the Coast News Feb. 7, Cashore  said he recognized the band's  position on the public walerline,  calling it an issue thai "needs to  be resolved."  He further acknowledged the  band's request lo be heard outside the Treaty Commission and  said such negotiations are "within the realms of possibility."  The Sechelts earlier had  threatened to dig up the water-  line by Ihe end of ihe February.  Thai deadline was extended  from an initial dale of Feb. 14.  The waler pipeline runs  through band lands and, if severed, would deny waler service  to Sechell, Wesl Sechelt, Secret  Cove and East Porpoise Bay.

Maddn Put  883-9875 opinion  Toward preserving  our water quality  Three cheers to Ihe six direclois of the Sunshine Coast Regional District who have chosen to fight for the preservation of water  quality in the Chapman and Gray Creek watersheds.  Their joint decision to demand no more logging in the Coast's  two principle watersheds bucks the proposals offered in the draft  Integrated Watershed Management Plan (IWMP) and brings merit  back to the waning credibility of politicians on issues of environmental concern.  It was a critical decision.  But Ihe IWMP in its present form is not in the best interests of  the whole community. Its stated purpose is to "protect and where  possible enhance the quality, quantity and timing of flows" in the  two main watersheds, yet it proposes to accomplish this by allowing continued logging in the area with, of course, continuous monitoring.  How much more monitoring is needed to prove lhat considerable damage has already been done?  According to a recent study presented by the members of Ihe  Tetrahedron Local Resource Use Plan, logging activities in the  watersheds have already degraded waler quality "to a significant  degree."  How long is it going to lake, if logging activities continue,  before that damage become irreversible?  Remember, this is the same water supply that is coming inlo  our homes.  Yes, if enforced, people ��� loggers ��� will be put oul of work  and (hat represents another hard blow to an industry that's taken  more than a few punches over the last few years in terms of  employment.  But what's the alternative? Do we create jobs for a handful of  workers for a short period of time? Or do we acknowledge that  the majority population in this district has a right to clean water?  There is no choice.  This Monday, Feb. 28, the SCRD will be present at the public  hearing for the IWMP to voice its concerns on Ihe document's  shortcomings. If you care about the quality of your water, maybe  you should be there too. The public hearing will be held at Rockwood Centre in Sechelt at 7 p.m.  The answers lie in  the questions we ask  Do we want people to come to the Sunshine Coast and see the  area for what it is? Or do we just want people to come?  These may sound like fairly simple questions. But they are at  the root of most of the conflicts over development and tourism  issues.  And the issues are many: construction of the ferry terminal  and Gibsons bypass; ferry commuter service; the rising cost of  housing; growing residential and commercial development; the  attempts by fast food chains to move onto the Sunshine Coast and  the opposition to their arrival; unemployment; environmental  concerns. And the list goes on.  How you react to these issues can almost be predicted from  your answer to those two basic questions.  Take the planned fast food outlets, for example. If you want  tourists to visit the Coast, then something as familiar as McDonald's golden arches is probably a plus. If you want people to  come to see the Coast as it is, then the change represented by the  golden arches is something you are likely to oppose. (And this  leads to debate over industrial vs. eco-lourism.)  And so it's likely to go with the other issues.  Unfortunately, many people are giving the answer to a third  question that has not been asked ��� "Show people the Coast as  we remember it to have been."  Alas, while we can preserve remnants of what was, we must  deal with what is. And that leaves only the two questions.  Everything else is process or nostalgia.  MONOPOLY, SUNSHINE COAST EDITION..  letters  Ferry whiners,  get out of here n  Bravo! Cheers I And a good,  old-fashioned "Good for you" to  Maurice Pearson of Gibsons for  his letter 'Ferry whiners, get out  of here.'  I have lived on the Sunshine  Coast for almost 30 years and  yes, I too came of my own free  will, and probably for most of the  reasons that everyone else comes  to the Coasl ��� quiet living (well  it used to be), slower pace and  the most magnificent real estate  in all the world.  In that 30 yean I have had to  use the ferry system, for which  my family and I have always  been grateful and seen it improve  in leaps and bounds.  In fact, having spent most of  my time in Powell River raising  family and working etc., I used to  look forward to the feny rides as  a time of relaxation. So whal if  they were a little late? We always  went prepared with a small lunch  and things to occupy everyone in  the vehicle.  Certainly everything can do  with some improvements, but  let's see these ridiculous commuters dig deeper inlo Iheir  pockets and come up with the  extra taxes to pay for everything  they want improved.  I put my voice with yours, Mr.  Pearson: "If you don't like what  you find here, go back where you  came from and leave us alone."  This train of thought goes  even further to all of the different  immigrants that are let into our  country and then proceed to  demand that everything be  changed to the way they are used  to back where Ihey came from.  I say, enough is enough. This  is our country and come whal  may, we like it ihis way. If things  here are not to your liking and  obviously things were not to your  liking where you came from, go  back and change your country,  not mine.  NORMA HUNTER  Sechelt  Apology called for  When Maurice Pearson insulted Ihe commuters of the Sunshine Coast in last week's newspaper, he neglected to inform you  that he is a BC Ferries employee  and us whiners pay his salary.  It is gross misconduct for an  employee to insult the company's  paying customers.  . BC, Ferries should apologize,  publicly and Mr. Pearson should  be reprimanded for misconduct  and bad public relations.  At a time of an already  strained relationship with BC  Ferries, this negative attitude  causes more public discontent.  MARTIN O'REILLY  Gibsons  A chance to dance  for freedom, justice  An article in the Weekender  of Feb. 17 tells of an Amnesty  International reporl on human  rights abuses in Northern Ireland.  "The human rights organization details unanswered questions  about security force killings and  patterns of killings by para-military groups."  The reports of abuses are too  common in too many countries.  One line in the article however,  was out of the ordinary. The IRA  allegedly killed someone because  he "supplied building materials"  to British forces.  Usually, the targets are "leftist  guerrillas or blacks, immigrants,  let ters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  interest.

Then they came for the blacks,  but I'm not black so I didn't  object.  They came for this group,  then for people who hold that  view, but none of it involved me  so I didn't protest.  When they came for the people who supply building materials there was no one to object  because everyone had been taken  away.  I'm sure lhat some of the people who deal with building materials here on the Coast and others  alike will welcome an upcoming  opportunity to contribute to Ihe  campaign to end killings by government and para-military  groups.

I encourage everyone to support the efforts on the local front  by buying tickets and attending  the dance.  ROB BOURQUE  Gibsons  Harcourt is taking heat for all British Columbians  Poor old Mike Harcourt. The affable, able and  decent man who is premier of British Columbia  really didn't deserve the rough ride he was given  on his recent visit to Germany to plead the case of  the forest industries of his province.  As a first-term premier, he largely inherited the  legacy of devastating forest practices and dramatically ruined landscapes which has BC rivalling  Brazil for best-known ruinous ecological regime on  Ihe globe.  Forty years of doctrinaire, laissez-faire management, if that's Ihe word for il, under the Social  Credit regimes which dominated Ihe province for  almost all of the lasl 40 years, created Ihe legacy of  environmental degradation which Harcourt took lo  Europe lasl month.  It is Harcourt's challenge and his burden to try  lo creale a bridge of credibility between Ihe free-  booting days of the recenl pasl and some method of  proceeding which will keep Ihe foresl indusiry  viable in terms of available trees and respectable  enough in ils ecological practices in these days of  inflamed if belated global awareness of a deteriorating environment.  Sympathy for the beleaguered premier of BC  cannot obscure the fact, visible to customers in  Europe, lhat Harcourt's lorlured response to a  sharply divided electorate and Ihe galloping  destruction of the great forests of the province is  too little and too late.  ll was an act of genius to name Native leaders lo  musings  the panel which will decide the fate of what original forests the province has left. But it comes 20  years too late. Nor is the premier's defence of  clear-cutting of forests on humanitarian grounds a  defensible position. Clear-cutting is a monstrously  wasteful way of harvesting wood.  The world knows that now; it knows too, thanks  among other things to the dramatic pictures which  appeared a couple of years back in National Geographic, on whal a gigantic scale BC has been laying waste to the great forests which were its spectacular heritage.  Harcourt's defence of clear-cutting still, whilst  claiming that the forest industry has changed its  ways, is doomed to defeat. It is a shallow and  unpersuasive stance dreamed up in the back rooms  by some damage control expert with no idea of the  extent of the problem, either on the hillsides or in  the minds of a significant portion of BC's international customers.  Harcourt is between the traditional rock and a  John burnside  hard place. World-wide, and even in BC, there is  an increasingly powerful voice of environmental  awareness. There are also, among Harcourt's traditional allies in the trade union movement, attitudes  prevalent which are as uncompromising and fierce  for the destruction of the forests as any in the piratical board rooms of the multi-national forest giants,  planning their future outside the province and looting it of its incomparable limber as fast as possible.  Harcourt's attempt to be all things to all men is  doomed from the start. The only ihing he will  achieve on this path is the destruction of his own  reputation and usefulness.  A decade ago Briiish Columbians were removing their forest cover at a record rate, so profligate  that ihey were shipping whole trees to Japan by the  million, greal forest giants the like of which the  world will never see again. Whole trees by the million, by ihe boat load, untouched except for their  falling and limbing.  Not for British Columbians the lucrative work  of processing those trees into product. Any who  raised their voices against this obvious madness  were dismissed as cranks, tree huggers and a host  of other pejontives. I've known since I was about  six that when someone started name-calling it was  because they couldn't think of much else to say.  The name-calling was enough, nonetheless, to  keep the pirates of Ihe forests in power long  enough to blacken the name of the province around  the world.  There has been a parallel development at the  other end of this great and mismanaged potential  which is Canada. A decade ago the fishermen of  Newfoundland were as heedless of the morrow as  the BC logging industry. Despite repeated advice  that fish stocks were being depleted at ruinous  rates, governments anxious for election continued  to allow the wasteful exploitation of a seemingly  limitless resource till today il is illegal in most of  Newfoundland to catch cod even for the table.  The day is nol far off, whether Mike Harcourt  knows it or not, when the defiant loggers of British  Columbia, whose votes he courts, will like the  Newfoundland fishermen, be forced lo a realization  that their way of life has been destroyed ��� and  destroyed with their connivance.  Mike Harcourt was taking the heat in Germany  late last month for all of us. Those of us who lived  and voted in BC whilst the rapine destruction of  our greal forests took place all carry our portion of  shame.

I named her Angie  Clair Roy. 1 was 15 years old. It  was a very difficult time for me  and 1 was torn apart inside. I was  young, alone, scared and confused. I desperately wanted to  keep and raise my daughter, but  it was not to be so.  At that time, young girls  rarely kept their babies, doing  what was thought of as 'best for  the child.' I was pressured by  family, social workers and sociely into giving my baby up for  adoption. I reluctantly signed the  papers and I will never forget the  day I signed my name below the  words I barely understood. I  received no counselling whatsoever. I was expected to simply  forget the whole incident and gel  on with my life.  I did not forget and never will  forget my little baby girl.  Although I went on to have other  children, my first born child has  always had a special place in my  heart and always will. I long for  the day we can meet and I only  hope and pray she will find a  place in her heart for me.  My daughter is now 18 years  old. ll has been 18 years of pain  and heartache and I have never  been at peace wilh my decision  lo give up my child. I have not  felt like a whole person since that  time in my life ��� a piece of my  heart is missing. A day has never  gone by where I haven't thought  of my daughter: what does she  look like, is she happy, does she  ever think of me, did I do the  right thing for her, is she all right,  is she even alive?  I began a .search for my  daughter last fall and am finding  it to be a very difficult and frustrating ordeal. I have come up  against brick walls at almost  every turn. I feel as though I am  to be considered the 'enemy' and  I cannot understand why. I have  suffered and paid the price, yet I  feel I continue to be 'punished.'  My love and concern for my  daughter did nol cease upon my  signing a document. It is difficult  for most people to comprehend  my pain and impossible for me to  put into words. Perhaps only  those that have been there themselves can truly understand how I  feel.  I shall continue my search for  my daughter. I feel I owe it to  her. I know the time that has  been losl cannot be recovered,  but 1 hope and pray she will  accepl me in her life and we can  share in our futures together.

Name withheld by request  Greenpeace angers  Greenpeace pulled one question from an Angus Reid Poll  lhat claimed lo show 63 pei cent  of British Columbians oppose  clear-cut logging. The numbers  really don't surprise me. More  than 63 per cent of the same people polled by Angus Reid would  agree with a 20-per-cent cut in  taxes. You explain to these same  people what it would cost them  to stop all clear-cut logging or  cut taxes by 20 per cent and you  are going to get a different  answer to your question.  Greenpeace knows only too  well lhal logging will continue in  Bishop on Tripp  over rec complex  In response to SCMHA VP  Walter Tripp's opinions on lack  of available ice time, and District of Sechelt youth perhaps  should have priority on registration at the arena  There is, in fact, ice time  available now, generally after  4:30 pm, that remains mostly  unused and also Monday mornings from 6 am to 8 am. Daytime use by the schools Monday  to Friday has increased this year,  but could still be expanded.  School use should be a very  attractive and reasonable activity  as an alternative to expensive  and time-consuming ski trips.  ($3 per hour vs $50 per day).  In other arenas it is very rare  for adults to have ice time before  9,piiitbfnO.'ptrt;'Thetirfte^s|edji-  cili'a '^youth and families  before then. jj ���|     "  : ri Waller Tripp has done well'to  create panic and set up a foundation for potential wall-building  between the communities but is  this going to aid in addressing  the problem or just provide a  vehicle for our communily leaders to maintain the same path of  lack of cooperation between our  communities? That method is  not a positive one. Let's work  together as the community of Ihe  Sunshine Coast to support our  recreational needs.  There is still time to spend  doing an audit of our present  programs and future needs (four-  six months) in recreation (especially youth). The results will  indicate the needs and provide  the basis for gaining the suppon  of our community leaders to  accomplish them.  The Sunshine Coast Recreation Facility Society, a nonprofit group of concerned citizens, has been formed to tackle  this and also gather the factual  information to support the building of a central recreation facility on a site yet to be determined  but it must be central and accessible in all ways in order to be  successful and attractive to  users, and in order to receive  your Yes vote at that referendum  that must come in order for anything to be built.  No one should be surprised  that the cost of any project will  take your breath away, but it will  be an investment in your community of unparalleled value, to  yourself, our youth and our community should be proud to take  the courage to support this facility.  If you would like to support  this project through a membership in the society or have comments or questions, please call  Gord Bishop at 886-8250 or Ann  Hayward at 885-8955.  GORD BISHOP  Concerned Parent  Meeting rec needs  I recognize the need for  improved ice arena facilities. I  recogniietheoeed for renovations and more ice time at the  Sunshine Coast arena....  However, I also recognise  that recreation does nol only  mean minor hockey. There ate  many other facets of recreational  activities, all of which contribute  to full and meaningful lives.  Recreational activities are an  essential source of self-esteem  and positive self-image; they  reduce alienation and loneliness.  Meaningful recreational  activities for our young people  deter costly, negative social  behaviours. Recreating together  builds strong families, which is  Ihe basis of a stronger society.  Investment in recreation it an  excellent preventative health service.  Having good recreation services in a community motivates  business relocation and expansion to lhat community; they are  a catalyst for tourism and yield  big economic returns ��� sporting  and festival events are excellent  for the economy....  The Sunshine Coast Recreation Complex Sociely is committed to the building of a one-  stop recreation complex on the  coast for the benefit of all citizens.  We, the SCRCS, feel that the  first phase of the project should  be an aquatic facility ��� a six-  lane, 25-metre pool (minimum  required to hold swim meets),  with beach access (for handicapped and young children) children's play area, hot tub, steam  room, diving boards, Tarzan  rope, tube slide, and a main concourse area to house teaching  and meeting rooms, youth centre, fitness gym and daycare. We  support this because a) there is  no such facility on the Coast; b)  It would serve the widest range  of age and interest groups and c)  The PERC study recommends  this and found the highest interest for this type of facility.  The Sechelt Indian Government District (SIOD) is supportive of a recreation complex on  the Coast for the benefit of all  citizens. They are interested in  building a gymnasium and have  offered land, situated behind the  hospital on a lease basis: The  land li-ttla kbod location1 fi��a  numWrof reasons; however ottf  options are open. >>'.<><  The SCRCS would support  working with the SIOD. They  build a gym, while we build an  aquatic facility and youth centre.  The Professional Environmental Recreation Consultants  Ltd. (PERC) study submitted to  the SCRD in July 1991, recommended renovations be done to  the Gibsons pool to meet short-  term needs (one to four years),  and that support be given to the  development of a new aquatic  facility...  The Gibsons pool...has limited life left as a facility that can  meet the needs of the Sunshine  Coast. It was built, after all, to  serve the needs of the town of  Gibsons 20 years ago. As this  letter is being written, children  are being turned away because  classes are full. The arena is not  the only facility that is becoming  inadequate in serving the needs  of the Sunshine Coast.  We need to come and work  together to enhance the recreation facilities on the Coasl, so  that all lives will benefit. Please  feel free to write or call if you  have any thoughts on this subject or if you want to get  Involved.

So we ask ourselves, "What the  hell are Ihey trying to pull off?"  The answer is at the bottom of  a full-page ad that Greenpeace  placed in Ihe Province newspaper: "Make a donation please."  Thai's right, Greenpeace smells  money.  Let's go back to the question  from Ihe Angus Reid poll, lhat  slates 63 per cent dislike clear-  cutting. If only half of Ihe 63 per  cent donated 10 or 15 dollars to  Greenpeace, then Greenpeace  would stand to make over $5  million. Not bad money for a  newspaper ad and some billboards.  After giving the Sierra Club  and the WCWC their cut of the  cash, Greenpeace is still left with  a nice profit to send to head  office, wilh no concern as to how  much their fundraising campaign  could really cost our province  economically, by even trying to  shut down over half our forest  industry. Hundreds of forest  workers and many other British  Columbians are taking the time  and effort to sit down and try to  find some common ground and  deal with our concerns in a  responsible way. Greenpeace,  Sierra Club and the WCWC  seem more concerned with the  big green buck than with  attempting to find an acceptable  solution that will truly address  the concerns of all British  Columbians.

Rob brings much knowledge to tbis position and  is a welcome asset to the NRS Management Team.  by Joan Peterson  With representatives from  bolh Ihe BC Ferry Corporation  and the Department of Transportation and Highways attending the February general meeling, coverage from the local  press was assured and the contents already reported on in  some detail.  It remains only for ihis column to remind readers that having lobbied some 26 months for  any communication between  these bodies and this communily, WHSEA can take some satisfaction in achieving that end.  Certainly, the efforts of these  spokesmen to address our concerns is appreciated; whether the  fears expressed by the membership have been allayed remains  doubtful.  In fact, Ihe primary objective  of Ihis organization ��� the  prompt completion of the highway bypass and Langdale terminal connection ��� may not be  realized in the foreseeable  future.  Hinged to the second phase  of the Gibsons Bypass, Ihis relatively small segment is dependent on approval of the substantial budget needed to complete  the entire project.  Whatever priority this may  have in the view from Victoria  remains unknown until release  of the provincial budgel, due  April 1.  We can only trust, lhat in Ihe  event of any April Fool-ishness,  the joke is nol on us.  Nevertheless, our guests presented recently revised plans for  both the highway intersection  and terminal, incorporating  changes based on previously  voiced complaints from this  group and were receptive to further suggestions on safety considerations and on more specific  traffic routing signs.  Far more important in most  minds was the opportunity for a  civil exchange between government envoys and our citizenry.  An airing of problems and perceptions by both sides in an  almosphere devoid of 'altitudes,' without confrontation,  rancor or accusations.  We intend Ihis same spirit of  moderation to prevail at our  general meeting next month,  despite exclusive focus on Ihe  BCFC and ils correlation to the  Sunshine Coast and thus a topic  known to raise blood pressures,  hackles and decibels to their  outer limits in equal measure.  The agenda will include  remarks from our BCFC guests,  president and CEO Michael  Martin and general manager  Rod Morrison and presentations  from Ihe Sunshine Coast Commuters Association, SCRD  Transit Committee, Town of  Gibsons and our memberships.  Other interested groups or  individuals are invited to make  prior written submissions for  consideration to: WHSEA, Box  151, Granthams Landing, BC  VON 1X0 or call 886-2654 for  information.

Set qf grant and nbata.     TSItC  '/  Centra Gas  The meeting of the Sea Cavalcade committee recently indicated that the events are taking  shape nicely. We still need some  willing bodies to lake on some  committees. The responsibilities  are dwindling as the jobs are broken down. For instance, our need  for 'kiddies day' is now reduced  to someone to marshal the races.  We're hoping two or three  parents will get together and take  care of that. Alice Morrissey has  agreed to take care of the booth  games using her own equipment  which should give a new brighter  look to those activities.  Another case of seeing a need  and filling il is the offer of Dawn  Nicholl and her husband to provide a welcome and refreshments  for the Keals swimmers when  they come ashore this year. This  entrepreneurial spirit is what  makes the Sea Cavalcade go.  Anyone else with helpful suggestions would be most welcome at  our next meeling which will be  held March 14 in the Marine  Room below the Gibsons Library  al 7:30 pm.  We received news lhal Ihe  arrangements for the spring ball  have come together. All those  who love ballroom dancing will  want to gel oul their glad rags  and dancing shoes and mark  April 30 on Iheir calendar. We're  having a dinner and dance al Ihe  YMCA hall al Camp Elphinstone  and ihe music will be provided  by the big band sound of the Harbour Liles Orchestra from Pender  Harbour.  Tickets will be available from  Sea Cavalcade members and  selected stores to be announced.  This should be a great send-off  for this year's festivities.  For further information on any  Sea Cavalcade activities please  phone Rick Saunders at 886-  2884.

The ad hoc lank  committee advised that they are  still dealing with tanks and  propane in Ihe Creek area.  It now appears that the truck  trains will nol be used from Hillside bul that the propane will  still be barged into the Creek as  per usual. There has been some  concern raised regarding the  upkeep of the lanks and loading  area. This is now being checked  into. We are at a standstill at the  moment wilh the Ministry of the  Environment representative  advising lhal the lease will not  be renewed but with ICG still  nol prepared lo make alternate  arrangements. The commiltee  will be working with the regional board lo continue to find an  appropriate solution to this  ongoing challenge.  Dogs running loose in  Roberls Creek are the worst it's  been in the pasl 10 years according to Regional District director  Brett McGillivray. It is particularly bad above the highway  where the dogs run loose, form  packs and play havoc with our  already limited wildlife and privale slock.  After much discussion, a  motion to have the Roberts  Creek Community Association  write a letter to Doug Pierce, the  conservation officer, requesting  he investigate the problem and  try to deal with this issue, was  passed.  It is hoped resources from Ihe  appropriate ministry in Victoria  will be available to the conservation officer so that we can  begin to solve this age-old,  much talked about problem.  Family dogs when out of  Iheir yard must be on a leash but  almost everywhere you look in  the Creek this is not happening.  If you are having trouble with  loose dogs invading your properly, then call the regional dog  catcher Stan Jones at 885-2261.  1,1 The OCP public hearings are  now over and according to  McGillivray, they were the besl  public hearings thai he has been  involved with over the years.  There was ample opportunity for  discussion, input and listening.  There was excellent communily  involvement, wilh respecl  shown for opposite points of  view. The plan was unanimously passed by the regional board  on Feb. 10 and forwarded to the  provincial government for  acceptance. Hopefully it will be  received back by Ihe end of  March. At this time we can proceed wilh implementation.  Constable Jim McDonald  once again presented some programs offered by the RCMP. He  urged our community to become  involved in taking care of their  own needs as the policing force  on the Coast is limited in manpower and resources.  A committee to study the  problems we face and the programs offered has been formed.  They will work closely with  McDonald to decide on a course  of action for the Creek at which  time the community must take  hold of the issues at hand and  set up the appropriate programs.  If you are interested in joining  this committee, please call  McDonald at the Gibsons  Detachment, 886-9244.  Battle of the Bands  Youth Action presents an  excellent opportunity to solo  musicians or bands who consider themselves young musicians  lo compete on March 4 for a  complete recording package and  other prizes. The event will be  held at the Creek hall between 8  pmand 12:30 am.  Advance tickets are $4 and  are available from Scott's  Music, Max Music and the  Creek store while tickets at the  door will be $6. A bus has also  been arranged to take people to  Gibsons, Sechelt and Pender  Harbour after the event for only  $1. You must call 885-8766 to  register for a ride.  If you wish to register for the  contest, you must do so by  March 1. Call 885-9755. This  event is sponsored by the  Roberts Creek Youth Empowerment Project and the Roberts  Creek Community Association.  Creek step class  The popular aerobic exercise  class using a step will begin  very shortly at Sl. Aidans Hall.  The six-week program of classes  will be held Tuesday, Thursday  A swarm of kids at Roberts Creek's Carnival daytime  celebrations paced each other through the limbo contest as  musicians band members and parents watched,  Joel Johnstone pholo  and Saturday mornings. Consideration will be given to setting  up evening classes, depending  on enrolment. There will also be  drop-in privileges. For further  information call Caitlin Hicks,  who will be the certified instructor, at 886-3634.  Youth in the Creek  Sunday evenings al 7 pm is  the time and the Gumboot Gardens is the place where the  Creek youth meet. At present  there are 14 youth from Ihe  Creek, Gibsons and Sechelt  involved in this newly formed  project.  They hope to focus on providing opportunities for the  youth to leam about their environment, themselves and the  community.  They plan to produce �� youth  magazine in early April which  will be available for sale, this  magazine will give those  involved a chance to show their  creative talents, creative expres  sions and at the same time give  them practical experience in  pulling together a publication.  The Battle of the Bands is  also another learning project  which they have organized.  Plans for lots of outdoor activities, including kayaking, are in  the works.  Carnival thanks  Carnival is over for another  year and Ihe Carnival Committee would like to thank the many  volunteers who worked so hard.  We would also like lo thank the  Coast News for the coverage of  the events.  Several items were found  after the events: a magician  brooch, a bead necklace, blue  and white copper earring, Toyota car .key, a set of keys, felt  pens, hammer, stapler, a bag of  clothes and a scarf. Lost but  'unfound' was a necklace with  multi-coloured daisy beads. For  further information call Jan at  886-2883.  Auxiliary again comes through for hospital  by Darah Hansen  Wilh knitting needles, baked  goods and second-hand clothes,  Ihe volunteers of St Mary's  Hospilal Auxiliary have earned  more than $100,000 for the  Sechelt hospital again this year.  Auxiliary president Vivian  Tepoorten announced lasl week  lhat a total of $ 114,000 has been  raised through the efforts of the  charitable organization's 434  volunteers who operate coast-  wide.  The money is to be formally  donated lo Sl Mary's Hospital at  an event Monday, Feb. 28 at the  Sechelt Indian Band hall.  The money is part of an  annual effort on behalf of hospital auxiliary volunteers whose  collective purpose is to raise  funds for medical equipment at  the hospital and lo offer support  and comfort to hospital patients.  Lasl year the organization  raised $125,000 ��� enough for  the hospital to purchase a  Laparoscopic Cholesistectomy  System as well as several other  items.  Tepoorten estimated the total  funds raised by the auxiliary  over ils years of operation at  upwards of $2 million.  The money is raised through  a variety of efforts, said  Tepoorten.  Chief among them is the  Sechell thrift shop, which brings  in about $100,000 every year.  Other activities include hosted teas, luncheons, craft fairs,  bake sales, garage sales and  bridge nights.  Tepoorten said the auxiliary  is also hoping to earn money  this year through its newly  expanded gift shop services  located on the main floor of the  hospital.  In accepting the money, St  Mary's Hospital administrator,  Ted Wright, praised the auxiliary for its consistent good  work, adding it is largely  through the efforts of the auxiliary that the hospital is as well  or better equipped than other  hospitals of its size in the  province.  "They keep us in good  shape," he said.

It was controversial lo say  Ihe leasl. Even before Ihey began, Ihe games  were tainted wilh the Kerrigan-Harding affair  and were soon followed by complainls aboul  Ihe professional athletes who returned to  compete as amateurs, all in search of gold.  No mailer how sophisticated the games  appear lo be, there are always individual athletes whom the public feels have been unfairly marked. As long as it is left up to the  human factor, Ihe judges, 1 doubt it will  change.  Beauty and style are in the eye of Ihe  beholder.  A public hearing detailing the proposed  connector road for Davis Bay/Wilson Creek  sechelt scenario  scheduled for Feb. 14 was cancelled due lo  the flooding of Ihe Seniors Centre. It will now  be held at Rockwood Lodge on March 31 al 7  pm.  Good news  Happy to report Hilda Costerton is convalescing in Sl. Mary's Hospital after falling  and fracturing her leg. I know she loves lo  have visitors, so drop in and cheer her up.  Astronomical increases in medical insurance premiums for oul-of-country travel and  the deflated Canadian dollar are but two reasons more and more people are changing  their ideas about holiday destinations.  In-province and local excursions, retreats  and guided tours are becoming more popular  as a result.  Not only are most of them economical bul  "by slaying home," our own economy is  being fuelled.  Welshmen unite  Calling all Welshmen! March 1 is Ihe day  lo honour St. David, the patron sainl of Wales  who lived between Ihe 5th and 6th century.  Legend has it he was the son of a prince of  Dyfed and uncle of King Arthur. It was  David who was responsible for Ihe adoption  of the leek as Ihe national emblem of Wales  although his personal emblem is a dove.  The Scots have haggis, the Brils Yorkshire  pudding, Ihe Irish potatoes and the Welsh  have cock-a-leekie soup. Put a leek in your  lapel, the Men of Harlech on your stereo and  say Tangnefedd (peace be wilh you). I've got  my leek, now I have lo make Ihe soup.

Last week I mentioned the  Sunshine Coast Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre and its ongoing  need for funds and volunteer  donalions. The centre is very  careful wilh its budget and does  amazing things within its limitations.

Teenagers aspiring lo be the  next Pearl Jam or Sonic Youth  will face off al Ihe hall Friday,  March 4 as pari of Youth  Aclionl's Battle of the Bands  contest and all-ages dance party.  "We figured the best way lo  get lots of people involved for  our first dance would be to have  lots of bands and lots of young  musicians participating," said  Irwin Oostindie, facilitator for  Youth Action!, offshoot of the  Roberts Creek Youth Empowerment Project.  The party is being produced  for residents between the ages  of IS and 24 and will feature  performances by seven local  bands vying for a comprehensive demo recording package.  The package, valued at $700,  includes a recording session at  Inner Ear Studios in Roberts  Creek, including pre-consulla-  lion, technical set-up for guitarists, accessories for band  members, a master recording  tape and 100 duplicated tapes  for the winner to distribute.  The cut-off date for bands is  March 2.  To dale, three bands have  been signed up.  "There is no place other than  their parents' garage where they  can come together and play for  people their own age," Oostindie said.  "That's one of the reasons  why we're doing it. The big success will be to actually give  young people a chance to see  other young people playing  music."  The show starts at 7:27 pm  and runs until 12:30 am. Bus  service will be provided  between Gibsons and Pender  Harbour after the dance and  young parents and moms needing babysitting for the night will  get support from Youth Action!,  which has agreed to pay for the  cost of hiring sitters.  "One of the things we are  doing is making this as accessible as possible," Oostindie said.  Tickets are $4 in advance,  and $6 at the door.

For the most part, Walker's  songs are story oriented and  loaded wilh "the funny rhyming  humour kids like."  Walker also fuses storytelling into his shows and is  starting to develop an ability to  turn his shows into "dance-  along parlies rather than sit-  down concerts."  And for grumpy parents  unable to tolerate children's  music, Walker promised there's  something in the shows for them  as well.

The moment they do, they  find lhal their whole income tax  situation changes ��� in some  cases quite dramatically. For  one thing, the self-employed are  in line to claim a number of  business-related expenses as tax  deductions that are just not  available lo salaried employees.  These deductions are quite  wide-ranging and too numerous  to list here. Besides, not all  deductions will apply universally in all cases. A lot depends on  Ihe nature of Ihe business.  So if you've recently struck  out on your own in a one-person  business operation, you should  be aware of Ihe various tax  breaks available to you. If you  have any doubts on this score,  any chartered accountant can  help to sort il all out for you.  Some of Ihe more common  deductible expenses have to do  wilh your place of business  itself. For example, if you're  using your home (or part of it)  exclusively as your base of  operations, then all related  expenses ��� prorated ��� would  be deductible.  Note, though, thai 'exclusive'  is the key word. You can't have  another office downtown and  claim home expenses at the  same time.  With office machines, like a  fax, computer or typewriter, you  can deduct capital cost  allowance. Stationery and other  office supplies are fully  deductible in Ihe year you  acquire Ihem.  Also, certain expenses in  respect of advertising and promotion (such as meals for  clients) are deductible, bul only  up lo 80 per cenl of the total.  And that's federally. Ontario  only allows you 80 per cenl  prior to May 31, 1993 and 50  per cenl after May 31, 1993, so  thai means you must do Iwo calculations.  Car expenses, too, are  deductible, whether you buy or  lease a vehicle. Again, these  should be apportioned between  business and personal use. So  it's a good idea to keep a log.  New for the self-employed  Ihis year is the employer health  tax (EHT). This is basically a  payroll lax which kicks in on  self-employed income in excess  of $40,000 and runs between  one half and two per cent,  depending on total income.  Although deductions may be  great for reducing your earned  income ��� and therefore tax  payable ��� don't get carried  away. Remember, RRSP contributions are calculated as a percentage of your earned income  ��� currently at 18 percent. So  loo many deductions leave you  wilh a low taxable income. But  they'll also leave you wilh little  or no room to make your RRSP  contributions. It's certainly  something to keep in mind.  This financial advice is supplied by Canada's chartered  accountants.

You have a wide range of  choices when it comes to RRSP  investments. It's in your best  interest to consider the options  before you make a purchase.  Basically, RRSP-eligible  investments break down into  three main categories. These are  cash or cash-equivalents, fixed  income securities and growth  securities. Before you make  your selection you must do a bit  of self-examination. Have you  got a strong aversion to risk  investments? If so, you should  avoid putting the bulk of your  RRSP money inlo the growth  category. Instead, go heavy on  buying RRSPs in the first and  second categories.  But you should keep in mind  that the besl way to minimize  risk is to diversify your investments, by spreading them across  a spectrum of investment opportunities. In other words, don't  put all of your eggs in one  investment basket.  There are several other factors you should consider before  you make your actual RRSP  purchase. Things such as, how  much lime have you got before  you plan lo retire? And will you  have other resources besides  your RRSP program which you  can concert inlo retirement  income.  Things such as selling a farm  or a business, or drawing  income from a very generous  pension plan al your present  place of employment. In  essence, establish what will be  your retirement income needs  and how can you meet those  predictable sources.  , The safest, bul usually the  least rewarding, RRSP invest'  ments are those in the cash-  equivalent group. Included in  ihis group are Canada Savings  Bonds, treasury bills, money  market mutual funds and short-  term deposits. One advantage  these offer is that your money is  easily accessible in the evenl  you have a financial crisis and  feel compelled to redeem some  of your RRSP savings. Don'l  forget, however, you pay a tax  penalty when you withdraw  money from an RRSP.  Fixed-income securities  include such things as Guaranleed Investment Certificates  (provided they don't have a  term longer lhan five years),  certain types of bonds and  mutual funds which invest in a  diversified portfolio of bonds or  mortgages. Generally speaking,  the closer you get to retirement  the more weight you should  give lo fixed-income securities  in our RRSP program.  The growth category encompasses stocks (but avoid like the'  plague highly speculative stock*  ������especially the 'penny dreadful' ones) and mutual funds  which invest in good qualily  common stocks. Some mutual  fund companies provide already  pre-mixed retirement income  portfolios in the form of a single  mutual fund  So, you have a wide range of  investment choices.

Photography legend Susan Sontag has  made thousands of tracings in her illustrious  career ��� one that began in the 1950s when  cameras were still commonly regarded as  implements for taking family snapshots at the  beach.  But more and more, cameras are being  treated as tools of art as well as important  instruments of recording history.  It is this approach to photography that is  being passed on to the students at Elphinstone  Secondary School. The first school in British  Columbia to link up with Kodak-Canada's  "Focusing Education" program, Elphinstone's  Graphics Fine Art���Photography course is  teaching 79 Grade 10-12 students how to capture images and how to use their eyes and  imaginations to help create them.  The pictures on this page are just some of  the photographs taken by these students this  school year.  "I tell my students...there is no such thing  as a good or bad photograph, just one that  lives longer," said course instructor Jude  Renaud, now in her fifth year teaching photography to local students.  Renaud said the students start off "from  square one" in Grade 10, learning the intricacies of the camera, learning how to shoot,  develop their film and print their own photographs.  "They're learning to use photography as an  expressive tool," Renaud said. And many of  the students are getting into the course so thoroughly, she "had to kick seven kids out" of  her photo lab at the school so she could attend  an after-school interview with the Coast  News.  The affiliation with Kodak "is a tremendous success," Renaud said. Former Elphinstone student Zoe MacKenzie is now in New  York, N.Y., working as an apprentice for  Chris Buck, a magazine photographer.  The students, she said, are learning photography is "an extremely marketable area."  For a more detailed look at the Elphie students' work, check out Cafe Pierrot in Sechelt  where about 30 works are currently on display.  In April, a number of students will have  their work included in Kodak's annual Focusing Education show at Hong Kong Bank in  Vancouver.  Works are culled from the more than SO  schools now involved in the program.  "To love what you do, to the point of eureka."

Ever since the first races took  place in the fall of 1992, "a  group of interested people" have  come together to form a competitive and entertaining-to-watch  race schedule in the Gibsons  area, said racer and competition  organizer Dennis O'Brien.  Aboul 15 crews (50-60 people) gather for a brief meeting  and breakfast in the warmth of  ihe Yacht Club every Sunday,  except during off-season spells  such as during Christmas and the  summer holidays, and decide  where ihey should hold Iheir  weekly race.  "What's tun and different  aboul Gibsons is these people are  so fanatical," O'Brien said.  The Frostbite racing season  started Feb. 6 and the racers had  lo work to make the most of the  fickle winds. Yet the day was  bathed in glorious sunshine and  onlookers were treated to a  colourful spectacle as a varied  FRONTRUNNERS  RENOVATION  SHOE SALE  dies Nike Crosstrainer Reg 64.98  /^. *��       Sale 59.99  ^1M��s flSse��Aerobic Shoe Reg 114.98  C   Sale 99.99  Crosstrainer Reg 94.98  le 74.99  I Shoe Reg 119.98  Sale 99.99  m  Mens  JUST do it. c*  "CHECK OUT OUR NEW LOOK"  WRONTRUNNERS  GIBSONS PARK PLAZA, "108, 1100 Hwy. 101, Gibsons  886-4830    Tues. - Sat.   10:00 - 5:30  The Gibsons Yacht Club Sunday racers continue beating their way towards a Regatta in March.  Joel Johnstone pholo  array of sailboats moved around  the harbour area.  Last weekend was a different  story, as a cold February gale  forced them to change their plans  from sailing on the "outside" (on  the Strait) to another afternoon of  racing inside.  Racing on Feb. 13 "was  amazing. Very brisk conditions,"  O'Brien said.  Fierce winds forced crews  and captains to work hard to  keep their craft in the race and,  likely for some, afloat.  "It was really quite exciting,  really a show," O'Brien said.  "They're oul Ihere any weather, any wind." In fact, last year  after one of the three racing sea-  . sons came to a close, "the boats  were still out there."  As the racers enter their second full season, Ihe level of competition has grown "by leaps and  bounds," O'Brien said.  Some of Ihe racers have even  purchased better racing boats,  forcing Ihe group to utilize a  handicap-system to determine  who wins the races.  Racers Cam MacKenzie, Bill  Howe and Bruce Gorman went  as far as to purchase a Martin  242, a craft renowned for speed  and mobility.  "They've been out there twice  and they've really shown what  this boat (buill in Vancouver by  designer Donny Martin) can do.  The competition level has really  picked up."  Even though the rest of the  boats ��� with the exception of  skipper Pat LeGrandeurs Glory  ��� "are a whole rag-tag of  bloody boats" and aren't necessarily racing craft, Ihe races have  been, in (he past, close and exciting.  "People are really getting bitten by the bug," O'Brien said.  The winner of the first race of  the Frostbite season was  LeGrandeur's Glory with Capt.  Cam Mackenzie's Time Bandits  coming second.  On Feb. 13, it was Time Bandits earning revenge, nipping  Glory inlo second.  On Feb. 20, as the boats headed outside the harbour, it was a  repeat of the first week with  Glory first, Time Bandits second  and Capt. Dan Legg's Asyn-  chrony third.  Coast may play host to junior hockey;  a ftrhior A or JunldVrfleiitf  by Ian Cobb  Preliminary approval has  been granted for the Sunshine  Coast lo become home to a  junior hockey team.  After months of discussions  with the British Columbia Junior  Hockey League (BCJHL) and  Ihe Pacific Coast International  Junior Hockey League (PC1HL),  Impact Productions of Sechelt  has been successful in attaining  this preliminary approval.  "This prestigious honour will  require an enormous commitment by the entire Sunshine  Coast," said Impact's John Sper-  ring.  With that in mind, a minor  hockey franchise on the Coast  would create "an investment  opportunity" for local businesses  and individuals "who aspire to  raise the level of minor hockey  on the Sunshine Coast," as well  as encourage "the Sechelt district to erect a second sheet of  ice, as junior hockey is only one  of the numerous opportunities  that a second sheet of ice creates," Spelling said.  Even without the second  sheet of ice, both the Junior A  BCJHL and Junior B PCIHL  have said the current facility in  Sechelt is acceptable, except for  the dressing rooms.  And "that's a basic minor  entity," Sperring said.  The possibility of bringing in  depends on the interest shown  and money available.  A franchise fee for a Junior A  team is $55,000, while it's only  $4,500 for a Junior B team.  Then, of course, there's the cosl  of setting up, such as buying a  bus and all ihe necessary gear.  And operating costs run from  about $100,000 a year for a  Junior B team to aboul $200,000  for a Junior A squad.  Sperring said a team will  come to ihe Coasl.  However, the next week or  so will be the deciding factor as  Ihe pulse of the communily is  taken.

Gibsons RCMP received fewer call. ,���      ..... ���_.._.  ��> /    JW11V.V,  Gibsons RCMP received fewer calls in  January of Ihis year than they did in January,  1994 ��� bul Ihe number of criminal offences  reported was up.  Sgt. Rick Sargent lold Gibsons council  Feb. 15 lhat the nine officers currently on  duty at the detachment responded to 367  calls in January.  Included in the monthly statistics were  remember when  three drunk drivers, five residential, eight  cottage and seven business break-ins, 46 bar  walks and four bylaw complaints.  Council members were shocked when  Sargent said 19 businesses had been broken  into during Ihe month, and he promised to  double-check his figures.  A break-in to a local warehouse, in which  a number of lockers were broken inlo, effec  tively bumped the figure up from seven to  19, he said the next day.  RCMP paper work lists each locker as a  break-in "when in actual fact it was really  only one break-in," Sargent said.  Gibsons mayor Eric Small said he didn't  care if Ihere were "19 or 10, it's 19 or 10 too  many."  Coast News, February 28,1994 19  Dual Suspension  For less than $1,000  ��1��I  35.

Those two street names may  be unfamiliar lo you now, bul  Gibsons town council has voted  to accept them as the official  names of Iwo new streets in a  subdivision in Upper Gibsons.  Council accepted municipal  planner Susan Stratis' recommendation to adopt the names  suggested by the developers of  the 26 single-family Aurora  Estates subdivision located off  North and Reed Roads.  Aurora Way is an east-west  through road and Celestial Place  is a north-south road in the subdivision.  Wilh the unanimous backing  of council, town administrator  Dan Legg and mayor Eric Small  simultaneously remarked, "We  now have Iwo new streets."  Stratis also recommended  council establish a policy high  lighting a theme or themes for  the naming of future streets, such  as names lhal detail historic relevance or "Ihose lhat are descriptive of Ihe nalural features of  Gibsons."  That recommendation was  tabled so the town planning committee could review and discuss  it. "It would be stretching to say  Ihese are nalural features of Gibsons," said Stralis of Ihe "sky  theme" names given Ihe Iwo new  streets. Legg joked that Ihe  names might be considered nalural features of the town, all one  has to do is "look up."  Small asked Legg how restrictive the town policy is on naming  streets. The administrator replied  lhal Ihere isn't a current policy.  "This is why we would like to  have a policy," he said.  Councillor Waller Bradshaw  said he would like to see a policy  implemented that would make  developers have names "in mind  before people are ready to move  in."  "It really isn't the developers'  place to name streets," Legg said.  Most street names in Gibsons  commemorate historical figures  from Ihe town's past or natural or  landscape features relevant to the  area. Some street names, such as  O'Shea Avenue, are named after  developers or other local residents.

Corp. John de Jong of the  Sechelt RCMP detachment said  police were called oul to Gilligan's Pub at 11:30 pm Feb. 19  lo break up a fight outside the  bar.  Upon their arrival, the man  is alleged to have fought with  police, throwing a brick which,  according to de Jong, narrowly  missed injuring one of the  arresting officers.  A back-up RCMP team was  called out from Gibsons to aid  in his arrest but the request was  later cancelled.  Corp. de Jong said the man  had been drinking.  Robert Sacco, 23, of Sechelt  has been charged with assaulting a peace officer and assault  with a weapon.  He will appear in provincial  court in Sechelt on March 1.  Driver sentenced  Patricia Tripp of Gibsons was  fined $500 and prohibited from  operating a motor vehicle for  one year after being convicted of  impaired driving in Sechelt  Provincial Court last week.  Tripp was charged for operating a motor vehicle with more  than .08 mg of alcohol in her  blood Feb.-21,1993 after being  pulled over by police in Gibsons.  By Jon  McRae  GROOMING  YOUR YARD  Roes your yard have a smooth,  green lawn, well-trimmed hedge,  freshly painted fence, with  bicycles and lawn tools stored  neatly out of sight? One of the  most important indicators of  pride of ownership is a well  groomed yard, and  neighbourhood pride can pay  dividends to homeowners.  Even if you don't plan to move  soon, your cared-for yard could  help your neighbours who are  trying to sell their homes. Yard  work and gardening can be a  relaxing and rewarding hobby  which will pay off in beautiful  flowers and higher property  values. If you and your  neighbours pm out the effort to  make the street look terrific,  prospective purchasers will find  your neighbourhood attractive  and the demand for homes in  the area will increase, as will the  selling prices. Tien when you  wish to sell or refinance your  home, the comparable sales of  the neighbourhood will support  a much higher price in for sale  value or appraisal value.
