Don Anderson photo  St. Mary's strained by population boom  by Don Anderson  Hospital beds and staffing levels at St. Mary's Hospital have  decreased in the last five years  despite the population boom on  the Sunshine Coast.  'It's true we have fewer beds  now than when we did five years  ago and we have fewer staff but  we are doing more outpatient  kinds of things and the length of  stay of patients is being reduced,"  director of nursing Wendy Hunt  said during an interview last  Thursday (March 8).  Hunt said the hospital has  managed to maintain "a good  quality of care" through outpatient programs but the adjustments have put staff "under a lot  of pressure."  Current staff members, numbering 17S full-time equivalents,  are facing a projected budget  deficit of $500,000 for 1994-95  and the threat of further layoffs.  "That is true," said hospital  administrator Ted Wright, when  asked if the hospital has seen a  decrease in bed units and staff.  "There have been times when  we are full to more than full that  we have had to set up beds in the  corridor occasionally. But oil the  whole, (the reduction) hasn't  served the community that  badly."  The last time the hospital  experienced a reduction in the  number of beds was in August  1991. At that time, 11 of 49 acute  care beds were removed.  The reason for "trimming  down" at that time was insufficient funding to maintain the  then-existing services, Wright  said. Since then, the hospital has  implemented initiatives to avoid  the need for hospitalization of  certain patients, including diabetics.  To free up beds, the hospital  has instituted weekly diabetic day  clinics that provide education and  dieting information for patients  and their families. "It used to be  (hat when these people were  diagnosed, they were put in hospital for a day or two and  observed and given the educa-  t!;rnal process there," Wright  m.  Those visits now consist of a  trip to the hospital once a week to  receive counselling and assessment from a physician, nurse and  dietician in a group-like atmosphere with other diabetics.  A similar program is run for  psychiatric outpatients.  "The more we can do with  people coming in during the daytime and going home,, the fewer  beds we need."  Depending on the type of ailment treated, the hospital will  send patients home immediately  after surgery.  "For example, with an uncomplicated hernia, you are in and  out the same day, whereas you  used to be in here for three or  four days," Wright said.  The future of beds and staffing  levels, he said, will depend on the  operating budget allocated by the  Ministry of Health at the end of  the month.  Last year, the hospital  received less than one-twentieth  of a per cent" increase, while  incurring a deficit of $ 140,000.  Wright has discussed the economic outlook of the hospital  with employees, doctors and  unions and is asking for "whatever good advice they can give  ���Ma "  me.  He admitted the words "layoffs" and "cutbacks" have come  up during those meetings.  "We know that if there is  another year of zero budget  increase, we will have to be ready  to consider those things," Wright  said.  "We're not ready to talk about  how much in services we will  have to reduce or how many people might have to be laid off until  1 know exactly what the numbers  Cocaine  abuse  abounds,  officials  claim  by Don Anderson  Abuse of cocaine on the Sunshine Coasl has never been higher, say police.  "We have a fair amount of  cocaine use on the Sunshine  Coast," said Sechelt RCMP Cpl.  John de Jong.  "It used to be a social drug  used by people with bucks. It's a  popular drug, the drug of choice  right now."  Cocaine usually appears on  the Coast through Vancouver  Island suppliers, as well as other  dealers from Eastern Canada, he  said, adding "there are some fairly major players on the Sunshine  Coast."  Despite the apparent proliferation of hard drugs like cocaine  and heroin on the Coast, Sechelt  RCMP don't do a lot of investigations into the trafficking of  these "hard drugs," de Jong said.  "We do a lot more soft  drugs...we are working on  expanding our base."  Most arrests on the Coast pertain to possession of marijuana  and other "softer" narcotics, de  Jong said cocaine was once primarily used by "professionals"  ��� lawyers, accountants and the  like. But nowadays, the drug  knows no social boundaries.  "Is cocaine use a problem?  Yes, it is," de Jong said.  Dr. Paul Martiquet of the  Coast Garibaldi Health Unit confirmed the apparent snow storm  on the Coast, but said compiling  statistics about the degree of use  of the drug often underplays its  actual predominance.  turn to page 2  Cocaine  warning  blowing  about  BC Ferries chief says rate increases likely     Coast  The BC Ferry Corporation's Admiral Michael Martin, centre,  takes notes Wednesday night as Don Sherman of Sunshine Coast  Commuters Association comments on the operation of the  Horseshoe Bay/Langdale run. Joel Johnstone photo  by Ian Cobb  Get ready to pay more to  ride the Queen of Cowichan.  BC Ferries Corporation chief  Admiral Michael Martin last  Wednesday (March 9) told a  meeting of 125 Coast residents  that ferry rate increases are likely but said "they will hardly be  noticeable."  However, any    ______  increases should  be blamed on the  provincial cabinet, rather lhan  BC Ferries, said  the president and  chief executive  officer of the  crown corpora-  lion.  "We can't do  anything without  their approval," he said.  "We're currently waiting to  hear about subsidies and whal  tariffs to put in for the year."  But Martin said he expects a  10- to 15-per-cent cut in the  provincial government subsidy  to the ferry service ��� and any  rate increase would be lo offset  that loss in government funding.  The government has already  slashed ferry subsidies by 28  per cent over the past Iwo years.  The size and timing of any  increases this year would  depend on what was in the  provincial government's bud-  "We do not really  have control  over its destiny  as such'  ���Michael Martin  get, which isn't expected to be  passed until March 31, Martin  said.  But Sunshine Coast MLA  Gordon Wilson later said the  government rubber-stamps the  legislation for the ferry corporation and implored Martin to do  what he could on behalf of the  people   on   the  _____     Sunshine Coast.  Both Wilson  and      Gibsons  Chamber of Commerce president  Conchita Harding  lold Martin increased     fares  would affect all  ^^^^^ merchants on the  Coast.  ~ "Prices are de  pendent on ferry  fees and we want to keep people shopping locally," Harding  said.  However, Martin said BC  Ferries is "an extremely exciting and complex corporation.  Not only is it complex to operate but in how it is controlled.  "We do not really have control over ils destiny as such," he  added. "Il's Ihe government that  does." A common concern  expressed by almost every  speaker at Ihe meeting, including BC Ferries officials, was the  need for increased communica  tions.  turn tn page 2  by Don Anderson  Cocaine users may want to  think twice about what they put  up their noses.  The Coast News received a  call from a suspected user last  Thursday (March 10) concerned  about the possibility of cocaine  tainted with rat poison being circulated on the Coast.  "There's rat poison in the  cocaine on the Sunshine Coast  and Vancouver," the man said.  He would nol reveal his identity, but indicated that a friend  had "stiffened right up" from  using the drug, which he  believed was tainted with  strychnine poison.  Attempts to determine  whether there was some truth to  the caller's concern produced  varying results, but suggested  drug users should nonetheless  be aware of the potential for  tainted drugs.  "I have been told by the  Ambulance Service that they  have run across the occasional  case of somebody with strychnine poisoning because it was  cut into the cocaine," said Judy  McGuire, manager of the  Downtown Eastside Youth  Activities Society (DEYAS)  needle exchange program in  Vancouver.  "We just put out a warning  on our board but I gather that  there has only been the occasional case more than anything."  turn to page 2 Coast News,  March 14, 1994  news  MASON HILLS FEED & TACK  Cheep Chicken Feed  Layer  Pellets  Limit ol 10 bags  per customer  20 kg. size  sale in effect Mar. 6-20  Health officer says users  'don't understand risks'  from page 1  "We do know that cocaine is  a big problem on the Coasl,"  Martiquet said.  "As you know, it is very difficult to get statistics on drug use.  People don't volunteer that kind  of information to you."  According to results compiled  by the health unit, 86 per cent of  the number of people seeking  assistance for addiction treatment from the Alcohol and Drug  Counselling Society have problems wilh alcohol. Roughly 28  per cent are hooked on cocaine.  Martiquet said that figure is  likely underestimated, since  most drug users find it "notoriously hard" to admit Ihey have a  problem. "I would think that the  access (to the Coast) is so easy to  be had, lhat we would be inundated with cocaine. What that  accessibility does is make the  price go down as well," he said.  "Obviously people don't  understand the risks that they run  when they start using cocaine."  One of the ways to stop the  use of the drug, Martiquet said,  would be lo provide more education that "you can get high off  life without using drugs."  Laced coke probably won't kill  from page I  DEYAS officials received  information from unit 248 of the  BC Ambulance Service in Vancouver about the possibility of  strychnine poison being cut into  cocaine and heroin being circulated in Vancouver, a major  artery for the transfer of drugs to  the Coast.  Darryl Skelton, chief of  Ambulance Unit 268, would not  confirm or deny the ambulance  service had dealt with people  affected by tainted cocaine.  Sgt. Mike Rochan of the  cocaine division of the Vancouver RCMP admitted he had  never heard of strychnine being  used to cut cocaine, although he  said it is commonly used in cutting heroin. "That's a new one to  us," said Rochan. "It's sometime  used with heroin to give a quick  high. They call it a 'blast-off.'  It's been known about for years."  Wendy Hunt, director of nursing at St. Mary's Hospital, said  the hospital has not dealt wilh  any patients suffering from the  use of tainted cocaine.  "Although we have had some  overdoses, we haven't seen anything other than what you would  expect," Hunt said.  Dr. Paul Martiquet of the  Coast Garibaldi Health Unit said  a person snorting cocaine tainted  with rat poison would likely  experience some form of stiffness of the body, but likely  would not die as a result of the  initial exposure.  People who come in contact  with the tainted drug should seek  immediate medical assistance, he  said. Strychnine produces stiffness in the muscle joints and  upper body when it enters a person's blood stream.  Needle exchange  program in works  The Aclion and Alcohol Drug  Counselling Society is seeking to  implement a mobile needle  exchange program for intravenous drug users by the summer.  The program will be a joint  effort between representatives of  the Coast Garibaldi Health Unit,  the Sechelt Indian Band, St.  Mary's Hospital, Men's Recovery House in Port Mellon and  local physicians.  Society director Charlotte  Mallory said the main purpose of  the program is "education and  information" of the potential for  acquiring HIV through needle  use and unsafe sex. "We're not  this little safe haven anymore,"  Mallory said.  The society, with the assistance of the Sunshine Coast Needle Sharing Committee, has  applied for a grant of $15,000  from the AIDS Secretariat at St.  Paul's Hospital in Vancouver.  The money will be used to  hire a part-lime coordinator and  fund the operation of a mobile  unit for several hours a week.  The mobile unit will dispense  condoms and needles to drug  users on request, filed via an  answering machine at a to-be-  determined phone number.  Mallory said the program will  run for six months and then be  reviewed by local health officials.  Police say Coast cocaine use Is on the rise.

Joel Johnstone photo  Water cut-off threat ended  by Darah Hansen  The threat to the Sechelt  water supply is over following a  meeting last week between the  Sechelt Indian Band and Aboriginal Affairs Minister John  Cashore.  Members of the band council  and Cashore's ministry were all  smiles when they emerged from  Thursday's (March 10) meeting  but both parties remained close-  mouthed about any deals made  behind closed doors regarding  the band's outstanding land  claims.  Cashore said in a press conference after the meeting that  due to the "on-going nature" of  the discussions with the band,  "we are not prepared to say anything...at this time."  The Sechelts had made  repeated threats earlier in the  year to disrupt the town's main  water supply unless the government agreed to sit down and  negotiate with them.  The pipeline was installed on  band lands along the utility corridor in the 1970s by the  province in exchange for 25  acres elsewhere. The band never  received the promised additional  land.  The water pipeline services  the Sechelt community as well  as that of West Sechelt, Secret  Cove and East Porpoise Bay.  On Thursday, Cashore said it  was not his role to defend the  nearly 20-year delay in making  good on the government's  agreement with the band on the  utility corridor but did offer  some form of apology on behalf  of the province.  "I recognize the government  has not moved with dispatch  with regard to that issue. I regret  that. I stated that today."  Cashore said negotiations on  the utility corridor have  resumed, adding he considered  its solution to be a "high-priority" issue.  In an interview in February,  band chief Garry Feschuk said  stakes had gotten higher in the  negotiations because of the  delay but said his council had  not yet determined what the  band would be asking for.  Feschuk would not confirm  that statement at Thursday's  meeting.  He did say he was pleased  with what the minister had to  say regarding the issue.  "We're moving in a positive  direction where we are going to  be treated as a government."  Meanwhile, Cashore's assistant deputy minister. Randy  Brant, has been assigned to deal  with the band's comprehensive  land claims issue.  The band has been asking to  have its claim heard outside the  provincial Treaty Commission.  Such a move would put it at the  head of the line in front of the  several other BC Native bands  still struggling to put their land  claims together.  Cashore declined to clarify  whether the Sechelt band was a  government "priority" in having  its land claims heard before the  other bands.  He said he did recognize the  band's hard work in the "area of  self government and, "in that  sense,...by my coming here  today, I have indicated the priority that I have placed on...being  in discussions with them with  regards to continuing treaty  negotiations."  Cashore said he understood  the land claims issue to be of  enough importance to the band  that it not "drag on and on and  on," but he would not say how  long negotiations will continue.  Cashore also gave his assurance that he would personally be  available to "return phone calls"  if Feschuk needed to talk to him  directly on "any of our mutual  concerns."  Survey shows McDonald's supported  Preliminary results from a  questionnaire prepared by the  Sechelt Chamber of Commerce  indicate a high level of business  support for the appearance of the  'golden arches' on the Sunshine  Coast.  Roughly 84 per cenl of the  respondents to 70 questionnaires  returned to Ihe chamber by last  Thursday (March 10) supported  the opening of a McDonald's  franchise in Sechelt.  A mere nine per cent of the  surveys received indicated opposition to the idea, while seven  per cent suggested letting the  market decide whether it was  acceptable.  "It's telling us that, of the  members that have responded so  far, most are fairly positive  about the idea," said chamber  president Gordon L. Wilson.  The chamber sent out 640  questionnaires to its members  March 8. Wilson said the the  chamber will poll its members  on any important economic and  business issues that arise to  establish just where its membership stands on these issues.  "I have a feeling the artificial  reef will generate just as much  interest," Wilson said, of a proposed artificial reef.  The results of all chamber  questionnaires will be made  public, he added.  Meanwhile, the fight to stop  McDonald's from appearing on  the Sunshine Coast appears to be  waning.  A group of dissatisfied residents met with the Sechelt Indian Band last week to air their  concerns about the fast food  chain's inevitable opening on  band lands next year.  Lee Mason, an outspoken  opponent to McDonald's,  appeared less than encouraged  by the results of the discussions  between the group and the band.  She referred to the restaurant's  appearance on the Coast as a  "done deal."  "They basically need the  money to do the things they  need to do," Mason said in  explaining the band's reasons  for making a deal with the chain.  She said the band wanted to  know if the group had any alternative ideas, to which they  responded with the notion of a  Salish centre, complete with a  coffee house/restaurant and  community centre.  Native  school  programs  to be  expanded  by Darah Hansen  Native education in local  schools will likely undergo some  major expansions over the coming years as the Sechelt Indian  Band takes greater control of  funds targeted for its Native students.  "We jusl want to hold Ihe  (school district) accountable for  that money...and make sure it is  going to be spent on (Native programs)," said band chief Garry  Feschuk in an interview lasl  week.  Members of band council have  recently met with administrative  staff from both Sechelt Elementary and Chatelech High school  where the majority of band students are educated. The purpose  of the meeting was to implement  a broader array of Native programming in the schools. Currently, the two schools offer little  in the way of specialized Native  education although the district  receives an additional $130,000  ��� roughly $1,000 per student ���  from the Ministry of Education to  provide for them.  Chatelech principal Jeff Kenyon said school administrators  have agreed with the band to  widen the scope of Native programming available.  Feschuk said the band hopes  to offer cultural and linguistic  programs specific to the Sechelt  tradition and history as early as  next year. A Sechelt language  course is currently available to  students at the elementary level  only. No other specialized Native  courses exist beyond learning  assistance and special education  programs.  The band also plans to have  the district provide support staff  '    to talk to Native students about  the future and how they should be  preparing for it.  The idea is to help boost the  Native students' self-confidence  and their familiarity with the education system.  "Our kids do really well until  they get to the high school and  then our success rate starts to  decline. If we added some cultural programs, it would build up  their self-esteem and then they'll  want to go to school," said Feschuk. The band, in conjunction  with the administrators from the  two Sechelt schools, intends to  present the school board with its  targeted education strategy before  the end of the 1993-94 school  year.  The band's bid for funding  control is supported by the Ministry of Education.  Tyabji seeking name of letter thief  Former freelance journalist  John Pifer says he will not  reveal the name of the person  who supplied him with an  inflammatory love letter written  by Judi Tyabji to her former  boss, MLA Gordon Wilson. He  is now her fiance.  "It's nol going to happen,"  said Pifer in an interview Thursday (March 10).  Pifer, now the publisher of  Ihe Sunshine Press, made the  comment one day after his  lawyer appeared in BC Supreme  Court to argue against a bid  made by Tyabji lo force Ihe  publication of his source.  The motion was brought  before the courts after Pifer  refused in an earlier pre-trial  hearing to reveal the name of his  source.  The argument rests on  whether the press has a right to  protect its sources under Ihe  Canadian Charter of Rights.  Tyabji, MLA for Okanagan  East, wrote the letter while she  and former provincial Liberal  leader Gordon Wilson were still  members of Ihe Liberal party.  The letter was published in the  Vancouver Province newspaper  in March, 1993.  Tyabji has since sued both  Pifer and Pacific Press, the com  pany which publishes the  Province, in an action yet to go  before the courts.  Tyabji alleges both parties as  well as a third unnamed party  conspired to invade her privacy  and infringe on her copyright to  the letter.  "I consider the entire suit,  and my inclusion in it, to be  mere malicious mischief," Pifer  told the Coasl News.  You  won'  t need the "Luck of the Irish"  if you use  IK&  frp   COAST NEWS  t     Classifieds   i  ^Bj  Meanwhile, Tyabji was  forced to hand over her three  children to former husband Kim  Sandana Thursday after failing  to attain a slay against a court  order which grants permanent  custody to the father pending an  appeal.  Tyabji lost the custody of her  children, aged two lo six, to  Sandana in a court hearing last  week.  Sentencing handed down  for Sechelt sexual assault  A Sechelt man has been sentenced to three years in jail for repeatedly sexually assaulting his neighbor's young son.  Kenneth Richard Wood, 52, was sentenced Tuesday, March 8 by  BC Supreme Court Justice Howard Callaghan after a jury convicted  him in January on charges of sexual assault, indecent assault and  gross indecency in relation to a 10-year-old boy.  The abuse ��� which included oral sex, masturbation and sodomy  ��� took place in Sechelt over a period of five years beginning in  1973, court was told during the trial.  In sentencing Wood, Justice Callaghan said deterrence is the primary consideration in cases involving the sexual abuse of children.  Wood was sentenced to two three-year terms in jail on the counts  of sexual assault and indecent assault. The sentences are to be served  concurrently. The third charge of gross indecency was stayed by the  court.  The victim, now 25, is still undergoing therapy.  During January's trial, Wood was found not guilty on two counts  of bestiality with a horse.  VINYL SIDING  Aluminum Sotlits. Palio Covers & Railings  Vinyl Sundeck Flooring.

If lhal is, in fact, the case, Ihe stated desire of corporation  officials lo set up new lines of communication is somewhat  questionable, It looks to us like a way for the corporation to  receive any discontent directly and massage it, ensuring that it  doesn't gel out in public where it makes the corporation look  bad. However, we have lo give it a try.  Tlie one valuable thing corporation officials did impart was  the necessity for the various groups to get together and speak  with one voice instead of many. We think that is good advice.  Provincial inaction  caused revival of  racial prejudice  The threat to Sechelt's water supply is over.  Nol that we believe the Sechelt Indian Band ever wanted to  cut off ihe water to Sechelt, West Sechelt, Secret Cove and  East Porpoise Bay.  However, after almost 20 years of trying to get from the  provincial government the 25 acres of land that was promised  in exchange for a water pipeline right of way across band  lands, the band gambled on a hang-over-the-edge tactic and  actually got the attention its claim deserved.  Even if the land-swap commitment was made by another  government, it is shameful that this one did nothing until it was  faced with the imminent threat of the water cut-off. While the  tactic was successful, the period during which the band made  ' the threat and the provincial government appeared to be ignoring it caused the Sechelts some ill will from the non-Native  I community; some of the phone calls band council members  received from certain Sunshine Coast residents during this  period were truly frightening in the level of their racism.  Significantly, these and other residents chose to blame the  Sechelts for what was happening rather than the provincial  government, the real villains in the piece.  Even if the Sechelts win their land claim ��� and they  deserve to do just that ��� they will unjustly be the recipients of  the fall-out from the racial prejudice that came to light during  this time. And clearly, that won't be solved with dollars and  cents or a piece of land.  However, we hope the band finds a really inventive way to  force the provincial government to take public  responsibility for that particular social cost to the communities  of the Sunshine Coast. The provincial government has a moral  responsibility to take some concrete measures to help undo the  damage its inaction caused for the Sechelts.

I find it curious and ironically amusing that, while (belatedly) but adamantly opposing the  creation of an artificial reef  below "see" level, the Sechelt  Indian Band is cheerfully conspiring to foist a McDonald's  upon the Coast.  Aesthetically and ecologically speaking il would seem to  make much more sense to raise  the Chaudiere and exhibit it on  Block 7 while putting the golden  arches in its place.  Then again, the world's first  underwater burger stand might  really settle our hash.  JAN MICHAEL SHERMAN  Watson Lake, Yukon  Sechelt Band policy  changed by deal?  I'm confused. In 1992 ihe  Sechelt Indian Band was highly  critical of the sinking of the  Chaudiere and, more recently,  vowed to stop the sinking of a  second ship in the waters off the  Sunshine Coast, the rationale for  the outcry being possible environmental damage.

My confusion has little to do  with the golden arches. It does,  however, have a great deal to do  with the obvious about-face in  band policy.  BILL LUCAS  Halfmoon Bay  McDonald's vs  artificial reef  I have just had an opportunity to flip through your Thursday, Feb. 17, 1994 paper.  After reading it 1 feel compelled to comment on two articles.  On the front page was an article about the Sechelt Indian  Band opposing a second artificial reef.  Calvin Craigan is quoted as  saying "anything that is not natural to our environment is  putting il in jeopardy."  The second story on the front  page refers to McDonald's con  structing a restaurant on Band  lands.  The proposal was to be voted  on Feb. 17.  The tone of the article was  that Band Council believes  McDonald's would prove to be  a positive influence in the area.  Is it just me or is there a double standard here? The Band  would object to a vessel being  sunk because it is unnatural but  they are willing to build a  McDonald's on their land. I  can't believe that McDonald's is  considered natural, wholesome  or good for the well-being of  mankind and the earth in general.  Just something to think  about.  Oh, by the way, don't get me  started about McDonald's,  A&W or Dairy Queen.

BOB STANHOPE  Sechelt  'Killing loggers'  Mike Harcourt regurgitated a  dubious claim from IWA boss  Gerry Stoney during his European promotion of clearcutting.  "I'm nol into killing loggers," fumed Harcourt, referring  to Stoney's assertion that  clearcutting is the safest way to  log old-growth. Since Stoney's  union represents an industry that  does in fact kill (on average)  about 30 loggers per year, I  enquired about the source of his  "statistics." Stoney refused to  divulge what they were or where  he got them, admitting only that  they were "nol from Ihe WCB."  Aside from whether or not  we should be liquidating the last  fragments of old-growth, surely  the death of 30 workers per year  merits the respect of accountable discussion that goes beyond  secrecy and deceitful public  relations manoeuvres.  What kind of a union passively watches half ils membership laid off in the service of  "jobless growth," when solutions that could provide both  jobs and environmental protection are staring us in the face?  And what kind of a premier tries  to score political points from the  death of workers sacrificed for  industrial profits?

It may he a couple of years now since Uie giant  forest corporations launched their PR blitz on Western Canada.  'Forests Forever' was the theme of a glittering  series of television ads wherein gravel-voiced, paternal-looking actors playing representatives of the foresl industry, hard-hatted but looking with gentle  thoughlfulness at a new crop of trees, assured us of  their concern for the well-being of Uie greal forests  of Uie west  Some of us have personal recollection of one of  the principal spokesmen for MacMillan Bloedel.

Nowadays he is a principal voice for the forest  giant, assuring us that jobs are ils primary concern,  with profits secondary. A likely lad with an unlikely  tale to tell  The article on the growth of the public relations  'industry' in the Utne Reader gives an historic  overview of its growth.  "Many PR practitioners," says the introduction.  "are content if their clients simply get a fair hearing  in the media, but there is a dark side to the industry  too ... corporate flacks who are not only manipulating our perceptions of public issues, but also helping  companies target their activist enemies. So far the  manipulators are winning."  Under the general heading 'Flack Attack,' the  article by Joel Bleifuss notes that "public relations is  shaping public life in ways we're not supposed to  notice. It's easier to change the way people think  about reality than it is to change reality." Just so.  In what it calls the Public Relations Hall of  Shame, the article gives an historic overview of the  John burnside  growth and history of this self-proclaimed 'industry'. In the years 1900-1920 in their campaigns to  gain local monopolies of telephone and electric service, utility companies began to flood newspapers  with the 'news release.' Telephone officials report  ihis canned 'news' so successful that many local  papers stop sending reporters to hearings setting utility rates.  In 1914 Ivy Lee. Uie 'father of public relations,'  fashions a philosophy of PR combining adherence to  facts with subtle manipulation of their significance.  In the 1930s PR executive Carl Byoir invents the  bogus 'grassroots' campaign by setting up al the  behest of his client, grocery giant A&P, dummy  organizations (National Consumers' Tax Commission, Business Property Owners, Inc.) to lobby  against special taxes on chain stores.  Between 1930-1960 Edward Bemays. nephew of  Sigmund Freud, brings out a book called Propaganda calling for an elite of PR professionals who "will  bring order out of chaos by shaping tastes and  needs...The conscious and intelligent manipulation  of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is  an important element in democratic society...Those  who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society  constitute an invisible government which is the true  ruling power of our country."  In the 1970-1980 period the giant Burson  Marsieller agency goes to bat for the Nigerian government (down-playing genocide in the Biafran  War); for Nicolaie Ceausescu of Romania; the  Argentine junta; Babcock and Wilcox (whose nuclear reactor failed al Three Mile Island); and for Union  Carbide (responsible for the Bhopal tragedy in  India).  By the time Ronald Reagan left office there were  3,000 public relations people on the government  payroll whose job it was to manipulate, spending  annually $100 million of the taxpayers' money, the  public's impressions of Uie military -industrial complex.  Knowlion and Hill was in charge of public relations for the Gulf War, their greatest coup being testimony before a congressional committee of a  Kuwaiti 'war victim' subsequently discovered to be  a resident of Washington. DC. daughter of the  Kuwait ambassador. This earned Knowlion and Hill  $10 million.  So it goes. Concentration in few hands of great  wealth; concentration in few hands of access to  information. The two combined to twist public perception for private gain.  Forests Forever, eh?

Coast News, March 14, 1994  opinion  The mysterious crossing of paths in Gibsons  A number of years ago now  - 10? 12? 15? - I remember  as I went shopping in the village  and walked along Marine Road,  below the park, proceeding to  the shops, I sometimes met an  elderly couple, with a magnificent dog ��� Samoyed-Husky-  hound cross? ��� short-haired  and of uniform beige color. It  was the dog's pride and joy to  be carrying a newspaper or  magazine or a brown paper bag  with groceries!  Now, how dogs do that without ever drooling or losing their  grip has ever b;en a mystery to  me.  One day, I could not resist  slopping and talking lo the couple about Ihis. Then I noticed  that the elderly lady, of slight,  short build, had a foreign  accent. The elderly gent, taller  and more stalwart, was definitely English. I asked them what  they called lhat beautiful dog.  "Lucifer!" promptly  answered the little lady.  "Oh, that's an awful name to  give to such a lovely dog!" I  exclaimed.  "Oh, no!" replied the lady.  "Lu-ci-fer: 'beautiful light,'  'morning star' ��� my country!"  My Latin came lo Ihe rescue  and I realized how, of course,  everything could fall into place  without any problem from either  the present circumstances or my  nervousness about theological  connotations. The one I had  made referred to the being who  had been the beautiful 'Morning  Star' of God's creation until he  rebelled!  My trips lo the village were  a personal reminiscence  a.m. martin, gibsons  not of a frequent or regular  nature and so I did not often  meet these three. But occasionally, sometime later, 1 would  meel the little lady with the  lovely dog, and then one day I  noticed she had two dogs, the  other a big black Labrador. I  could not help but stop and say,  "Howdy," and ask about this.  She laughed and said, with a  shrug:  "It's dog next door. He like  my dog and want to come too!  He good dog; I don't mind he  come along."  There are strict municipal  regulations here about dogs.  They must be within enclosures  or accompanied by owners with,  or carrying, leashes.  Later, much later, I again  meel this dear village neighbour, with only the black Lab. I  had to enquire about that. She  seemed quite sad. Lucifer had,  apparently, taken ill. He was not  young, had not been able to  "make it" and died. Here was  this dear, kind, old lady who had  not had the heart to turn the pal  away when he came back looking for Lucifer. The Lab was  young and active and was friend  of one or two of his kind in Ihe  block.  Sometime I have seen the  dear lady with two or Ihree dogs  ��� on leashes or with her carrying Ihe leashes. Then one day,  stopping to enquire about it all,  she told me that her husband  was ill and in and out of hospital. Occasionally, without her  dogs, and carrying a basket for  shopping, she would take the  minibus to the shopping mall on  the upper level. If I were also  going to upper Gibsons, we  would travel up the hill together.  We had interesting chats. She  was from one of the Baltic  countries - Latvia? Lithuania?  Estonia? - and was very concerned about the consequences  of the communist regime.  Then, much, much later, circumstances having altered  things health-wise for both of us  and yet never having brought us  any closer socially, I find myself  in the emergency ward of our  local hospital, awaiting a medical check-up and aware of a  flurry of activity and the arrival  of an emergency, placed on the  bed in the cubicle opposite to  mine. I recognize my dear old  acquaintance of 'Lucifer' days.  "Oh, Mrs. Kinsey!" I sing out  in surprise. "What has happened?"  "Fall... maybe broken  bone..."  I found out later that Ihe little  lady ��� with her husband in and  oul of hospital ��� often lived  alone. She had been oul walking  with her dog when she slipped  and fell and could not gel up.  She unleashed the dog and he  made for the nearest house.  They recognized him and were  about to take him home when he  led them to where his poor old  owner was lying in trie road!  "Was she not the deserving one  of a dog's or animal's devotion  to its owners?" I thought.  Three years have passed. I  am almost helpless and confined  lo my home now after two  major surgeries within Iwo  monlhs of each other three years  ago.  My chief lines of communication with the community are  Church on Sunday, visits of  friends and the weekly paper. A  short time ago, I pick up the  paper and read in the Obituary  column:  KINSEY ��� Passed way January 29, 1994, Maxwell Ronald  Kinsey, late of Gibsons. Survived by his loving wife Lagle,  who extends her sincere thanks  to Dr. R. Lehman, Totem  Lodge, Home Support Society,  Hospice, Rose Cartwright, as  well as numerous friends and  neighbours. Private cremation  arrangements through Devlin  Funeral Home.  If it would be of any comfort  to dear Lagle, how I would love  to pass on to her this record of  my kind remembrances of the  times that our paths mysteriously crossed during the years that  we have shared in Gibsons.  prime to get planting  Large selection of Hedging Cedars  (assorted heights 2 - 6ft)  perennials (4in a pot)  Free soil testing clinic  Sat.

Elphinstone School  Gibsons  'Burbling away'  My, what a thrill it was to be  featured in an interview! May I  clarify a few wrong impressions  that I gave while I was burbling  away? Does anyone know of a  course for people who are terrified of public appearances but  who ought to get used to them?  The article says that murder is  essential to a mystery. Murder  may be de rigeur in adult mysteries, but I write juveniles.  In Detective 10th Grade, the  mystery concerns the disappearance of the school mascot, a  goat. Money to Burn is a middle-  grade book about BC lads who  find a suitcase filled with hundred dollar bills.

Surely I didn't say that there  is a good market for books for  teens/young adults.  In order for any sort of market  to exist, readers must first be  bom. Most births take place during times of economic prosperity, which at the moment are few  and far between. Publishers are  aware of the demographics. It's  rather like watching a boa constrictor digest its lunch; the last  optimistic bulge is still fairly  young.  They're coming along, but  they haven't become YA readers  yet. When they do, they may go  straight to adult books. The gen  uinely healthy market has always  been for middle grade and  younger readers.  While I did manage to sell  two of my books to the YA market, that's because this is only a  dream. (The silly cow has been  trying far so long, someone said.  Send her a bit of illusory success.)  By the way, I didn't really  mean that I hated your photographer. I simply wanted to defenestrate his camera. Joel did a good  job despite my rigor mortis.  MAUREEN GOLDMAN  Gibsons  P.S. My editor tells me that  Money to Burn will go out to  book stores on April 4.  Stop logging  watersheds  Re: Chapman and Gray  Creeks Integrated Watershed  Management  A management team  approach to Chapman and Gray  Creek Watershed seems more  equable with representation from  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District, Sechelt Indian Band,  Ministry of Health, Department  of Fisheries and Oceans, and  Ministry of Environment, Lands  and Parks.  Jurisdiction over this watershed by Ministry of Forests is not  only questionable but legally  doubtful.  The administrative nightmare  and economic cost to enforce  sensitive logging in this watershed does not justify the small  economic gain from extracting  timber that remains outside of  the Tetrahedron water retention  zone. Both Chapman and Gray  Creek have already been extensively clear-cut to the point  where water quality does not  consistently comply with Guidelines for Canadian .Drinking  Water Quality or the Safe Drinking Water Regulations.  '" Mote bad economics will be  perpetuated when expensive filtration systems become necessary to treat unsafe raw water.  The protection of drinking  water at its source by excluding  logging and mining within this  watershed is good fundamental  planning and less expensive than  any other option.

Davis Bay residents call for erosion study  The District of Sechelt will  revisit the seemingly chronic erosion problem in Davis Bay, bul  residents of that area shouldn't  expeel any immediate movement  toward finding a solution.  Members of the Davis  Bay/Wilson Creek Community  Association appeared before the  municipal environment committee to indicate the lack of attention given to the erosion problem  on the beach area.  Concerns expressed by the  group include water quality, safe  walking paths, traffic and park  ing and the question of commercial versus residential development.  "We wrote a letter asking  where things stood in terms of  the environmental condition of  the beach," said Jim Smith, president of the association.  "It's eroding more and more  every year and it's a concern of  the people in the bay who walk  the beach just about every day."  The fight to initiate a comprehensive study of the area has  been going on for more than  eight years, lo no avail.  An oceanographic engineering study of all feasible options  for conservation, recreational  capacity and development of the  Davis Bay waterfront area had  been promised by the joint  Sechelt-Sunshine Coasl Regional  District Davis Bay Foreshore  Committee.  That study has yet to be  undertaken.  "We believe there is a need  for a definitive study which will  provide the background information necessary for the community  to consider all viable alterna  tives," writes Smith in a Jan. 24,  1994 letter to Mayor Earl Basse  and council.  Smith believes "immediate  measures must be taken" to limit  continued erosion of the beach  and protect the homes many residents believe may be swept away  by the ocean.  "When I first came here, there  were areas along the shore that  you could park but now it has  eroded away to the point that  there aren't a lot of places to park  anymore. The erosion is that  bad," Smith said.  Powell River on BC government blacklist  by Darah Hansen  For the seventh time in four  years, the dislricl of Powell River  has been named to BC Environment's blacklist of environmental offenders.  And, according to Mike  Wong, ihe government's regional manager of environmental pro-  lection, the district has been  given until October to find a cure  for its on-going environmental  problems or face possible legal  aclion by the province.  Causing Ihe environmental  concern is the town's outdated  garbage incinerator, used to bum  municipal refuse.  Data collected by the provincial environment ministry has  labelled the system a chronic air  pollution hazard.  Powell River municipal engineer Jim Greenwood said the district burns 30-35 tons of household and commercial garbage  every day in the 22-year-old  incinerator. While such a system  would ordinarily fall within the  province's acceptable means of  garbage disposal, the Powell  River incinerator is "old technology" and has virtually "no pollution control whatsoever," and  Ihere is no means of measuring  accurately what exactly is being  burned, Greenwood said.  The incinerator is located near  the downtown core of Powell  River.  Greenwood said the regional  waste management committee  has been actively working on  locating a suitable landfill site to  use instead of the town's incinerator. The committee is also  putting out to tender the construction of a new incinerator at  an estimated cost of $4 million.  The district has had difficulty  switching to a garbage disposal  system suitable lo ministry standards because of the public's  strong division between Ihe  options of landfill or incineration.  Two local referendums lo initiate improvements to the district's solid waste management  and to end the unauthorized  burning in town have been  defeated by local voters.  A third referendum on the  same issue is likely forthcoming,  said Greenwood.  Dr. Paul Martiquet, chief  medical health officer of the  Coast Garibaldi Health Unit, said  smoke caused by unregulated  burning activities is a significant  factor leading to an increase in  the tecorded incidence of respiratory diseases including bronchitis, emphysema and lung cancer.  Coast  taken off  provincial  offence list  The BC Environment Min-.  islry has named 93 businesses,  municipalities and work sites  from around the province to its  recent report card on environmental offenders.  And, for ihe firsl lime since  1990, businesses on the Sunshine Coasl were not on the list.  Several of the names on Ihe  list ��� which is released by Ihe  environment ministry semiannually ��� are in "significant  noncompliance" with ihe  provincial waste management  act.  A press release from environment minister Moe Sihota earlier this month said lhat investigations will be conducted on Ihe  province's worst offenders and  legal aclion may be initialed.  Six companies and/or municipalities, labelled as "chronic"  offenders, are currently under  ihe government's spotlight,  including the district of Powell  River for its continued unlawful  burning of public waste.  Since the lasl environmental)  report card was issued by the.  ministry, 45 operations and/or!  work sites have been dropped i  from the list.  Western Pulp's Woodfibre in,  Howe Sound is ihe most significant omission from the noncompliance Iill. The company had  been on all seven lists issued  since July 1990.  Companies on the Lower  Mainland fared the worst on the  list as did Ihose in Nelson.  Pollution concerns from  municipal refuse and sewage  were common on the list as were  ihose from sawmill and pulp  mill activities.  mm Coast News, March 14, 1994  community  Don Hansen  and son  Zackery, 6,  enjuy the March  sunshine with  an afternoon ice  cream snack.  Joel Johnstone  photo  Loving the child within the man  by Marilyn James  Gibsons  The first time that I saw  Robert, I thought aboul how  handsome he looked and how  much he looked like James  Coburn with his mass of gray  hair. Within minutes however, I  became very subtly aware of  something about Robert that was  different. He was trying to be  formal and serious, but there  was another layer of personality  that was struggling to be controlled. It was the child inside  Robert...the child that he will  always have inside of him,  because thai little tiny bit of him  will never mature. Robert was a  grown man with the laughter of  a child. Robert giggled.  I forgot about Robert for  aboul Ihree weeks until his sisler  called me and asked that I consider hiring Robert for a job at  Ihe facility where I was working. She lold me that Robert had  said after meeling me that  evening that he wanted me for  his boss and he wanted to work  Editor's not*  This is one of two essays submitted by Sunshine Coast residents  for a competition sponsored by the Canadian Association for Community Living with the support of the Sunshine Coast News. The  top 100 writings from across Canada will be published in a book  and the grand prize winner will be awarded a trip for two to Toronto to attend a Toronto Blue Jays game and meet Blue Jays star Tom  Henke.  at Rockwood Cenlre. In his  innocence, he saw no obstacles  to getting work exactly where he  wanted.  Robert was hired and I soon  realized that I took on much  more than I thought I could handle. I had never worked with a  mentally handicapped person  before, but 1 learned patience in  showing things over and over  until something was understood.  I became an expert at relegating  duties in such a straightforward  and descriptive way that no one  could have misinterpreted my  instructions.  For two and half years Robert  and 1 worked together. We had  to learn what saying certain  ��� ',-.   ,  things meant. When I said, "Put  it over there," 1 had to be specific. Robert took everything literally at first. After a year of  working with him, I could say,  "Robert, put up the chairs facing  west in a semi-circle with a  lectern for the speaker and back  table for the coffee," and Robert  could do that. People I worked  with, and especially his sister,  were both astonished and gratified that he was allowed to do so  many things.  Robert was the best employee I ever had. He was loyal and  funny and he wanled so hard to  learn everything thai he could  about the business. He was  given more and more responsi  bilities ��� too many perhaps,  because sometimes we forgot  what he couldn't do and when  he got overburdened, he panicked.  You could see him regress  before your very eyes. You  could see him start lo lose his  concentration, his confidence  and, most of all, his maturity.  The child came back and Robert  would start to giggle, a very nervous and childlike giggle.  Seeing Robert retreat like this  taught me to watch for other  employees, to see their breaking  points, because they didn't show  it like Robert did, openly, like a  child.  When Robert first told me of  the many years lhat he had been  -institutionalized, I was amazed  no one could have seen the  potential of this wonderful  human being. My experience  with Robert will always be very  important to me and I truly  believe that working with  Robert made me a much better  peison.  ^^!t  JMAB1MA.

So  said the majority of the 50 members present at last Wednesday's  meeting, when asked "Should  the community association  focus awareness of the issues  affecting this community and  take a more active role in  addressing local concerns?  Should the association be the  voice of the community?"  Seldom has an issue brought  out more members than this one.  Proof, once again, that this is a  ih caring, sharing community tlyU  ,will rally when the issues are  important. The meeting was  conducted with grace, style and  courtesy, thanks to the guidelines set down by president Jim  Smith.  A brief historical exhibit  done in a mural-like display  detailing the early days of Ihe  community association was presented by Margaret Pearson.  It showed old pictures, newspaper clippings, letters and petitions; numerous examples of  what people in this community  have done over the years to provide some of the perks we enjoy  today.

For Ihose of us who were  born before 1945, we have witnessed a myriad of changes and  much to our kids' astonishment,  we have survived. We were  born before television, penicillin, polio shots, frozen food,  plastic, conlacl lenses, Frisbees  and the pill.  We were before radar, credit  cards, split atoms, laser beams  and ballpoint pens; before panty  hose, dishwashers, clothes dryers, electric blankets, air conditioners, drip dry clothes and  before man walked on the  moon.  We got married first and then  lived together. How quaint can  you be?  In our time closets were for  clothes, not for,coming, out of.  , Bunnies were small rabbits and  rabbits weren't Volkswagens.  Designer jeans were scheming  girls named Jean or Jeanne, and  having a meaningful relationship meant getting along well  with your cousins.  This and more was passed on  to me by a friend, Josie, who  was given it by a lady from  Chicago.  Perhaps I can finish it next  week.  Healer  follows in  mother's  footsteps  Shawani Campbell Star will  be giving an introduction to her  Healing Path Workshop in the  Sechell Elementary library on  Wednesday, March 16.  The workshop itself presents a  clear definition of the parental  role, ways of healing dysfunctional family patterns, spiritual  principles by which to guide our  lives and raise our children and a  language of empowerment.  Shawani's mother was a  medicine woman, known as The  Healer, who spent her life working wilh people who were in a  state of physical, mental or emotional imbalance.  Gradually, Shawani too,  became a healer, working wilh  people to find the spiritual cause  of their physical imbalance.  Although much of her time is  now spent training others to conduct Healing Path workshops,  Shawani also works as a motivational speaker and spiritual counsellor. Her workshops range from  Woman Spirit which supports  women in their own personal  journeys, to Youth Empowerment Sessions, and cover subjects such as self-esteem, health  and healing. She teaches Rikki  and is involved in Release Wotk  as well.  Everyone is welcome to this  introduction, but a $5 donation is  requested from those who can  afford it. The two-hour session  starts at 7 pm. community  Coast News, March 14, 1994  halfmoon happenings  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  It is exciting to see our great  blue herons returning to their  nesting sites on Redrooffs and  busily preparing to raise families.  They are very noisy creatures  with harsh croaking sounds as  though they are angry with the  world, but it is a joy to watch as  they transport huge twigs and  branches to reinforce the nests  high up in the trees. By the time  late April arrives the noise will  be even greater when the young  are being fed. But it is a noise  that we feel privileged to hear.  Joanne Dickeson of the  Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre at  Halfmoon Bay was delighted to  receive a $1,000 grant from the  seniors' Catch the Spirit promotion. This is a much needed and  appreciated sum which could be  increased by the involvement of  many of our senior citizens in  helping raise funds for this very  worthy cause. Joanne also  reports that the X-ray machine  has now been hooked up as well  as a turtle hot tub. The project,  which seems to be taking a long  time to complete, is the log cabin  on the site, but this does involve  a lot of work and is entirely  dependent on volunteer help.  Maybe   now   with   spring  Hospice  training  scheduled  The next hospice training session is scheduled for April 9, 16  and 23. Prior to that, the Sunshine Coast Home Support Society will host an information night  on Wednesday, March 30 from 7  pm to 9 pm to inform all potential volunteers of the Society's  different volunteer services.  The hospice program is in its  seventh year on the Sunshine  Coast. Hospice provides support  .' land caw foripersons who are fac-  ��� "��� ing�� life^hreatening.illnessv have  -   alfcmtinai Illness oratttyfctg for  reasons other than disease.' Hospice provides support to families  during (he illness, at the time of  death, should death occur, and  following the death of a family  member.  On the Sunshine Coast there  is a group of women and men  who have volunteered to provide  care and support. There is no fee  for this service. Each volunteer  has successfully completed a 20-  hour training program and  screening process. Each is committed to ongoing training and  support. Volunteers visit in  homes, in the hospital and in care  facilities. They will stay a few  minutes, a few hours, or perhaps  all nighl, depending on the need.  Hospice volunteers are available at all stages of a life-threatening illness. When an individual or family chooses to call Hospice shortly after diagnosis, the  ' volunteer can provide ongoing  care and support throughout this  often difficult time. Hospice volunteers recognize that each person is an individual with individual needs, rights, customs,  beliefs.  Hospice is a program, not a  place. It functions in cooperation  with other other services provided in the community, it does not  replace them.  Other community resources  include home care nurses, physiotherapist, home support workers, respite workers, meals on  wheels, audio books, the medical  community, Ihe church communily, volunteer drivers and others.  Hospice has been on the  Coast since 1987. During that  time Bob and Martha Scales  have provided training for 75  Sunshine Coast residents.

I was not invited, but I'm  sure that we were well represented and by the time you read  this chapter it might be all old  news. We can only hope that it  will be good.  Did they wait in Horseshoe  Bay the same as we all have to  do, or did they take the same  easy way out as Moe Sihota?  Robbery  The Bargain Barn is operated  by the clinic auxiliary for the  benefit of all residents in the  Pender Harbour/Egmont area.  On Jan. IS the facility was not  opened yet after the holiday season but some good Samaritan  left a stove and fridge there.  They were in excellent condition.  Someone else helped themselves to these appliances.  Because they were in such good  shape, there were many  inquiries for them.  As yet no one has offered to  pay for them, so it would be  appreciated if the recipient/borrower would make a substantial  donation to the clinic auxiliary  Bargain Barn. The Harbour  Spook has put a whammy on  these appliances whereby the  stove will blow up and the  fridge will explode if payment is  not received by the end of the  month. So there you have it.  An anonymous donation  addressed to the Harbour Spook  will release the whammy.  Thursday, March 24 will be  Dollar Bag Day again at the BB  as will be every fourth Thursday  coming up.  Science awards  These were held on Tuesday  March 8 and it is quite amazing  what our teens put together.  Quite a few will make it to the  Vancouver Science Competition  and perhaps from there to the  nationals.  As space is limited I can only  report the first prizes. Science 8:  first, Michele Zacharias; second,  Irene Malcolm and Stuart Malcolm; third, Ryan Reagh and  Chris Ford. Science 9: first,  Scarlett Hunt; second, Shannon  Gibson; and third, Jason Knox.  Science 10: first, Rolf Harrison;  second, Neven Cameron and  Kelly Williams; third, Andrea  Joss; fourth, Julia Forward and  Nancy Thompson; fifth, Heather  McKay and Allyah Charbonneau.  Science 11 and 12 Computer  Science: first class: Brad Cotter  with 'Famous Scientists';  Amber Nelsen and Kristine  Reagh with 'Name That Tune';  Steve Wharton and Jesse  Zacharias 'Evolution of Com  puters.' Second class: Gerry  Gooldrop with 'Up the Creek';  Steve Marton with 'Pender Har-  ogmont news  bour Casino'. Third class: Krys-  tal Craig with 'Ball Game'.  This is certainly a very  impressive list of competitors  from this area. Good luck to you  all and also to the runners up.  by Maureen Parrott, 883-9189  Bird song and clear skies  lately could almost convince  one that spring is here. Ruffed  grouse are growing fat on new  buds ��� probably from our fruit  trees, but what the hey. Watching the 'fool hens' is as much  fun as harvesting the fruit.  Fine weather brought an old-  timer back to Egmont. Brian  Takai and his wife drove Brian's  parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nobo  Takai, up from the city to visit  friends such as Lela Griffith.  Nobo and his brother, Yukio,  worked at their parents' store  and fish-buying station here  from the '30s until 1941, when  all people of Japanese extraction  on the BC coast were moved to  internment camps in the Interior.  North Lake residents will be  sorry to hear of the passing of  Ann Satterthwaite.  In the late '60s Ann and her  husband Joe cleared land and  built a summer home, the first  on the northwest shore of the  lake.  Gus and Eileen Havisto were  the next to settle nearby. A few  years ago the Satterthwaites sold  to Margo and Dave Harrison  from Langley.  The handsome red 1956 or  '57 Pontiac at Bathgate's  belongs to one of their tenants,  logger Ben Miller, residing in  Jack and Marilyn Bathgate's old  house.  The TV station which interviewed John Seabrook and his  Cosmic Cutlery has sent him a  copy of the short feature they  made.  I mean short: four hours taping turned into two minutes and  27 seconds of program. Next  time we have a social event let's  set up a VCR and see it. Got any  Egmont videos of your own?

Bul, with only three weeks  left to train, experienced runners  are advising armchair athletes  against signing up for the full 22-  kmmn.  "To run the half marathon  now, you should already be a  runner," says Rieta Hanson, five-  time marathon runner and Gibsons fitness instructor.  Hanson said people still considering entering the full April  Fool's run, scheduled to go  ahead April 10, should have a  good base of training under their  bell. That means running at least  three times a week for the last  few months. Hanson recommends building up stamina  before attempting the distance.  "You should be able to run 10  miles comfortably," she says.  But Hanson adds she's loath  to put anyone off from trying.  For someone who is not in  running form but is in relatively  good shape and has made some  kind of steady commitment to  exercise over the past few  months, Hanson thinks it possible to go the full 22 km distance  ��� "If you don't mind being a little stiff afterwards."  She further urges people not  lo discount the fitness potential  of the 10 km walk which has for  the first time been included in  this year's April Fool's event.  "There are a lot of recreational walkers out there...This gives  them something to work  towards." Hanson, herself an  experienced marathoner, says  she's run the course from Sechelt  to Gibsons several times and  considers it a good challenge.  "There are some mighty  hills," she says, noting in particular the one at the end of Lower  Road past the cemetery.  Slower runners can expect to  spend over two hours on the  road. Faster, more competitive  athletes can complete it in just  over one hour.  Hanson says it's important to  keep the goal of finishing in  mind throughout the course but  that doesn't mean a runner can't  have fun. She calls herself a  "social runner" and suggests participants link up with others of  the same pace to chat and pass  the time. That advice may not be  right for everyone, she says.  More serious runners may just  want to focus their minds, "clock  off miles and go for it."  Do whatever feels right, she  says. "Enjoy it....that's all you  need for fitness."

Photo submitted  Vancouver Rowing Club paddle-whacks Pigs  Get warmed up with Him .April Fools's Run  FRONTRUNNERS  GIBSONS PARK PLAZA. * UIH. 1100 Hwy   101, Gibsons  HHt, -1830    Tues     S.it    10 00    S 30  by Ian Cobb  Hampered by injuries and  roster problems, Ihe Gibsons  Pigs Rugby Club slipped in its  own sty March 6 while playing  the Vancouver Rowing Club  (VRC) at Langdale Elementary  School.  With the 31-19 loss, the  Pigs' formerly spotless Vancouver Rugby Union record dipped  to 15 wins and three losses.  Club representative Ray Dow  said he didn't "want to make"  excuses" but the club has been  bitten by the injury bug Ihe pasl  month and several players are  finding their playing schedules  colliding with work schedules.  VRC jumped into an early  first half 12-0 lead by making  the most of creating overlaps  out lo the wing and making the  most of the open field allowed  by Ihe Pigs.  The Pigs eventually adjusted  '/stillthink we  can beat them'  -Kay Dow  to counter VRC's strategy and  started to turn the game around.  By kicking the ball down-  field for position, the Pigs  tagged the ball  onto the VRC  15-metre   line    ������������������  and then, during  a scrum, the ball  was popped up  and under across  the  goal  line  where stand-off  Bill Henderson    _______  battled several  defenders and  latched onto the ball while it  was still in the air and  set it  down for a try.  The Pigs closed the half off  with a similar play.  This time, however, after the  ball was kicked downfield lo the  Rowers five-metre line, Ihe Pigs  were awarded a free kick.  Opting instead to run a  penalty play, the Pigs faked a  lob lo the forwards and swung  the ball out to the backs. Again,  stand-off Henderson snagged  the ball and galloped into the end  ������    zone fof a ^  Thanks to the  extreme angle,  kicker Dave Strom  was unable to  make the kick and  the first half ended        12-12.  With momentum on their side,  the Pigs continued to back the  larger but slower Rowers into  their end and another try was  nailed after a VRC winger bob-  bled the ball during a scrum and  the Pigs hopped on il in a far  side of the end zone.  Strom made no bones about  his chance this time and tagged  the extra-points kick from an  extreme angle lo push the Pigs  into a 19-12 lead.  Unfortunately, wilh Ihose  points, Ihe Pigs were full.  "We let up and I think their  game plan helped," Dow said of  the Pigs allowing VRC back  into the game.  Using their bigger pack to  their advantage and slowing the  game down, the Rowers pulled  hard on Iheir oars and stormed  back with three unanswered  tries to steal the game away  again from the Pigs.  At press time the Pigs are  taking on Ihe Scribes in Vancouver and on March 20,  they're back home lo take on  their heated rivals, the Capilanos.  "I still think we can beat  them" Dow said of the team that  knocked the Pigs out of first  place with a 10-0 defeat Feb.  20.

RCMP are applauding new federal firearms regulations saying the rules will make their job easier.  Joel Johnstone photo  Firearms legislation a hit with hobbyists  bv Don Anderson  New legislation requiring  owners of firearms to take a  safety course or test is a welcome addition.  At least that is the opinion of  Bill Ellis, president of the Sunshine Coast Rod and Gun Club,  which boasts some 200 members.  "I think it is a good thing for  first-time firearms users.  Besides the leaching that we  give at the core program, I don't  think there is anything wrong  with people getting exposure to  firearms safely," Ellis said.  Legislation came into effect  Jan. I and now requires lhat  Canadians applying for a  Firearms Acquisition Certificate  (FAC) successfully complete a  course or test in the safe handling and use of firearms and  the laws relating to them.  The law affects BC, Alberta,  Ontario, Quebec, Prince Edward  Island and the Yukon.  The legislation will come  into effect for the remaining  provinces and Northwest Terri-  gibsons council tides  tories April 1. Ellis, teacher of  the Canadian Firearms Safety  Training Course at the Capilano  College Sechelt campus, said  the new legislation may serve to  reduce the number of firearms-  related accidents.  He is encouraging parents to  enroll their children in Ihe classroom course to ensure they  know that if they come in conlact with a firearm, they could  be "playing with something that  could be potentially dangerous  lo them."  Ellis said the perception that  the majority of accidents in the  home are related to firearms is  exaggerated.  What is important is thai if  there are firearms in the home,  residents have some knowledge  of safety precautions in their  handling.  "Everybody should be taught  about firearms; then we  wouldn't have the problems that  we do have," he said.  The legislation has established national standards for  safe handling of firearms and  understanding of the laws governing firearms possession.  What it won't do is stop people from obtaining weapons outright.  "I don't think it is going to  stop any kind of violent crime. I  personally think that people who  use firearms for violent crimes  are going to get them regardless," Ellis said.  Sechelt RCMP Cpl. John de  Jong also favors the new legislation, if only because of the more  stringent requirements placed on  purchasers and owners of  firearms.  Like Ellis, de Jong believes  people should know the dangers  of the instruments they are handling.  Successful completion of the  Canadian Firearms Safety  Course or tests is valid for life,  unless a prohibition order is  issued against the applicant.  The course includes information, instruction, demonstrations, video presentations, and  practical exercises on the various types of firearms and how  Handicap concerns  Councillor Ted Hume is concerned about the lack of handicap  access to sidewalks and buildings  in Gibsons.  Handicap access, he said at  the end of the council's March 1  meeting, "has got to become part  of the normal procedures. It  comes in as an afterthought all  the time."  Hume pointed at the town  office as an example of a location with poor handicap access.  "We're our own worst offender," he said, noting a doorbell  ringer for the town hall is located  out of reach of wheelchair-bound  people and the continual parking  of a town vehicle in what  amounts to the best handicapped  parking spot should be rectified  with the vehicle being moved to  another area.  Some other examples of poor  handicap access to sidewalks, he  said, are at the tennis courts,  Alder Springs Road and Pioneer  Park.  Administrator Dan Legg told  Hume that work to rectify the  lack of handicap access at Pio  neer Park or "the five comers"  would begin shortly. Two days  after the March 1 meeting, work  crews began installing access  ramps onto the sidewalks at the  site. Planner Susan Stratis  informed Hume that the new  provincial building code has "a  lot more provisions than in previous years" for requirements for  handicap access.  Legg said the town installs  handicap access to all new sidewalks and roads but suggested it  is possible "the odd one may be  missed."
