Joel Johnstone photo  Island paradise for sale... $4 million  by Darah Hansen  For sale: beautiful West  Coast island, very privale, well  kept old growth trees and fully  loaded ecosystem. Reasonably  priced lo the right bidder, government buyers preferable.  Interested? Just phone Albert  and Mary Palmer and ask about  their private paradise, Jedediah  Island.  Located north-west of Lasqueti Island, just under the lip of  Texada, Jedediah Island is listed  at $4 million ��� a bargain at  twice the price. Real estate  appraisers have estimated the  island's worth at over $6 million.  Bul there's a catch: Ihe  Palmers want to see the island  used for park purposes only ���   ' "interview last week from their  as long as they can afford lo      Nanoose Bay home on Vancou-  wait for an offer, that is,  Time is running out for the  option to purchase Jedediah  Island at the current  price. The Palmers    _____  say   they   can't  afford to wait much  longer.  They've been  living off their  senior's pensions  since their recent  move off the island ������  ��� Iheir home for  20 years ��� and have had difficultly financing a second home.  They moved because they  required a location more suitable  to their age, Al Palmer said in an  'It's a beautiful  island'  -Albert Palmer  ver Island. The Palmers are  both 73 years old.  "It was a little too inconvenient, that's the  ______     only     reason,"  Palmer said about  the move. "It's a  beautiful island."  The 640-acre  island is a blend  of 90-year-old and  old growth Dou-  ������    glas   fir,   with  white sand beaches, small orchards and a diverse  eco-system.  Deep moorages around the  island have made it popular with  yachters.  Palmer said he and his wife  aren't interested in getting rich  ��� "(We'd) rather leave something to heritage."  But, he said, "we haven't got  any money...what money we did  have is exhausted...it's necessary we get some compensation  pretty soon."  Palmer said they are considering several other options  including selling the timber on  the island or selling the land for  commercial purposes.  "If push comes to shove  (those are) my alternatives,"  Palmer said.  Meanwhile, one of the  strongest bids for the island has  failed.  turn to back page  All's clear  on the  pollution  front...  sort of  by Jane Seyd  In theory, anyway, the Coast  is clean.  For the second lime since  1990, businesses on Ihe Sunshine  Coast have escaped the Ministry  of Environment's list of pollution  offenders.  Last week, the government  released its semi-annual black list  of companies, municipalities and  other organizations which have  not been complying with their  pollution permits.  A total of 60 operations were  listed as being in "significant  noncompliance" this time, down  from 93 which were listed in  March. The number of "chronic  offenders" on the list is also  down. Moe Sihota, provincial  minister of environment, said in a  press release both tougher  enforcement and publicity from  the list have led many operations  to make changes.  But apparently getting crossed  off the list doesn't necessarily  mean everything's okay.  In fact, several companies listed as polluters in the past continue to have environmental problems, but have been taken off the  list for other reasons.  Locally, for instance, Western  Pulp's Woodfibre mill in still not  meeting its current air pollution  permit, bul has been removed  from die list because the company is putting in new pollution  control equipment and will.be  required to meet stricter rules by  the end of the year.  Prior to March, the company  had been listed for air pollution  seven times.  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper,  which has a much stricter air permit than Woodfibre, is also not  meeting requirements in some  months. But the company has  applied to change its permit to  make the current level of pollution legal, so it is also not on the  list.  turn to page 2  Car accident claims  life on Highway 101 E  A two-car collision on Highway 101 outside Gibsons has  left one man dead and another in  hospital.  Blaine Iverson, 33, of Pender  Harbour was killed Thursday  night, Sepl. 15 after the pick-up  iruck he was driving collided  wilh an oncoming car driven by  Gibsons resident David Chris-  lensen.  Chrislensen was taken to Sl.  Mary's Hospital in Sechell with  what Gibsons RCMP are calling  "relatively minor injuries."  At prcsslimc, Chrislensen  remained in hospilal and was  listed in satisfactory condition.  A witness al the scene.  Samanlha Harris, called Thursday's accident "terrible." bul  praised Ihe efforts of iwo other  witnesses for doing "everything  possible" to save the lives of the  injured drivers.  "Two men were right there,"  Harris said.  "There was gas pouring all  over the road, nobody wanted to  go near the cars but these two  guys were right in there trying  to gel the people out."  "ll was phenomenal," she  said.  The scene was also attended  by the Gibsons RCMP along  with the Roberls Creek Volunteer Fire Department and emergency services.  Although the accident is still  under investigation, police say it  occurred afler Iverson failed lo  negotiate a right hand curve on  Ihe highway and crossed inlo  ihe path of an oncoming truck.  RCMP closed a portion of Highway 101 Wednesday night following a two-vehicle accident in which  one person died. Keilh Thirkell photo  Contractor questions SCRD policy of 'rewarding initiative'  by Ian Cobb  The Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) is rewarding contracts to Coast  residents showing initiative.  While this may seem like a good thing,  il has at least one resident wondering about  what the guidelines are when "initiative" is  rewarded government contracts.  "What are Ihe terms of reference lo  whal is appropriate initiative and what  isn't?" Barry Janyk of Gibsons asked following the awarding of a $4,815 contract  to a Roberts Creek resident for a regional  district project which didn't go to tender.  SCRD finance committee chair and  Area D (Roberls Creek) director Brett  McGillivray admitted that contractor Dave  Bakewell was given the green light lo  undertake an estimated S4.815 park safety  projeci at Soames Regional Park after  Bakewell approached Ihe regional dislricl  wilh a proposal.  "Dave Bakewell pul in a proposal lo Ihe  parks committee and the committee  accepted il,"McGillivray said.  The public wasn't given a chance to bid  on the job because "he came up wilh an  idea. It's fairly standard practice to pul it  out to lender if we come up with the idea.  Bul he showed Ihe initiative and he was  rewarded for it," McGillivray said.  Janyk said he plans on pursuing his  query Ihrough Ihe auspices of Ihe Freedom  of Information Act lo try and determine  how many contracts in the $5,000 range  Ihe SCRD has rewarded lo people "show  ing initiative" in the past.  SCRD administrator Larry Jardine said  the SCRD gets numerous "quotes or proposals when it's a small job in the scheme  of things."  Janyk said he would like to know in  simple English whal guidelines private  contractors, such as himself, should use  when they're showing initiative and creating projects that are or possibly aren't in  the taxpayers best interests.  turn to page 2 Loast News, September 19, 1994  ^XiMti Is tunning out *\ef  JEDEDIAH!

Hans  Ounpuu  886-4680  Pollution list used to force compliance  from page 1  Powell River's municipal  incinerator - which was highlighted in the last pollution reporl  from Ihe government - has also  heen crossed off Ihe list of  offenders, although according to  Jim Greenwood, Ihe district's  director of engineering services,  "it's slill chugging away."  In March, the municipality  was cited for its burning of public garbage in an outdated incinerator with inadequate pollution  controls and given to October  Ihis year lo clean up its act.  Greenwood said Ihe district  has applied for an extension of  the closure date. If thai isn't  approved, the plan is to ship  Powell River's garbage to land  fill sites in Comox until another  sululion is found.  Of Ihe operations which were  on the list, bolh Ihe Greater Vancouver Regional  District (GVRD)  and the Skeena  Cellulose pulp  mill in Prince  Rupert were highlighted for making  Iheir eighth appearance as pollution offenders. ^^____  The GVRD was  listed for problems with its  sewage plant while the pulp mill  was listed for air pollution.  Municipalities and regional  districts were listed 16 times,  mostly for pollution from sewage  'Some companies  have literally spent  millions of dollars  to get off that list'  ���Greg Chessman  or landfills. Forest companies  were listed 17 times, mostly for  air pollution from burning.  In terms of potential local  impact, several       Georgia   Strait  communities  were listed for  pollution from  municipal  sewage. Copper  Beach Estates  Ltd. in Brittania  Beach was also  listed for acid  drainage into Howe Sound.  Greg Cheesman, spokesperson for the Ministry of Environment in Victoria, said generally  operations must be polluting IS  per cent over what Ihey are legal  ly permitted before being put on  the noncompliance list, although  some operations are allowed an  even larger margin.  Cheesman agreed since different companies have different levels of pollution allowed on their  permits, the list may not be the  besl measurement of who's polluting most.  But, he added, "some environments may be better able to  accept more contaminants than  others." He said use of Ihe polluters list has also been helpful in  getting many companies to clean  up their acts.  "Some companies have literally spent millions of dollars to  get off lhal list," he said. "We  find it a very useful lool."  Canadian navy veterans take Coast by storm  The Sunshine Coasl was  invaded by 215 former Royal  Canadian Navy veterans over the  Sept. 9 through 11 weekend.  The veterans were taking part  in the sixth annual Canadian  Naval Veterans Association  (CNVA) western branch conference.  Prom an opening bash at Ihe  Sechelt Royal Canadian Legion  to a dinner and dance at the  Sechelt Seniors Hall lo a weekend ending memorial ceremony  at the cenotaph in front of the  legion, the weekend was a success, said organizer Larry Farr of  the Sunshine Coast branch of the  CNVA.  "It turned oul very, very well.  Everyone was very complimentary," Fan said.  The three-day conference  included trips to Gibsons, Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper, a trip up  Sechelt Inlet, a fishing excursion  and a tour of the Chapman Creek  Hatchery. "Everyone was really  accommodating," Farr said. "The  lours went excellently."  Of the Saturday excursions,  only the salmon fishing charter  could be considered a disappointment.  , ^ However, Farr plans on making the fishing trip a little more  fruitful for the Calgary couple  who hit the salt waters in hopes  of luring a bite.  "They enjoyed it but they  Navy veterans line up for memorial services on the final day of a three-day convention in Sechelt.  Joel Johnstone pholo  didn't catch any fish. So, I'm  going to send them some frozen  salmon," he said.  The Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper tour was an eye opener for  the few conference members  who took part in it.  "Nothing I could do could  convince them (visitors) our mill  is very modern and doesn't stink.  They all thought the mill would  stink," Farr said.  The numbers on hand for the  conference were a definite bonus  for the Sunshine Coast's hospitality business, with one attendee  coming from as far away as  Portsmouth, England and several  others came up from the USA  and from Eastern Canada.  The majority, however, were  from the Lower Mainland and  with many having never been lo  ihe Coast, it was a good opportunity for the Coast to be shown  off.  The next western branch conference for the CNVA is tentatively scheduled for Kamloops  next year.  Coast politicians take Coast issues to Whistler  by Jane Seyd  What do you get when you  put a bunch of local politicians in  a Whistler convention centre,  then add provincial ministers and  staff?  Some serious schmoozing is  set to get underway this week, as  Sunshine Coasl politicians join  Iheir counterparts from around  the province, starting Tuesday,  Sept. 20 al Ihe Union of British  Columbia Municipalities annual  conference. Issues ranging from  gun control and the Young  Offenders Act to heallh, transportation and Native land claims  are up for discussion.  Local politicians are also  eagerly awaiting Iheir chance lo  hobnob with ministers, explain  concerns in their communities,  and hopefully extract some  promises.  Some issues of special concern to Sechelt have to do with  development. One is a resolution  on parkland dedication which  advocates increasing the percentage of land developers have lo  give over from five per cent to  ten per cent. Another concern is  over parking requirements set by  the highways ministry.  Subjects councillors from  Gibsons hope to explore include  the new community heallh councils, waste management and the  idea of one government for the  Coast. Councillors will also be  meeting the highways minister  on the topic of the Gibsons highway bypass. Continuing with a  joint emergency preparedness  program is another subject of  discussion, along with resolutions concerning the relationship  between municipalities and  regional districts.  Appointments being booked  by the Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) include one  with the health minister over  allowing direct sewer outfalls.  Directors also hope to meet wilh  highways over funding for a  transportation study.  Native land claims are also  expected to be the subject of  lively discussions. "A lot of  municipalities have concerns  about how they are going to be  involved - or not involved," said  Director Brett McGillivray.  Gibsons has budgeted $7,600  total this year for seminars and  travel, of which about $4,500  was budgeted for this week's  conference.  Sechelt has allocated $20,000  to cover conferences for the year.  Part of that will go to covering  the cost of the Whistler conference.  Figures for the SCRD were  nol available by deadline.

Last week United Fishermen  and Allied Workers' Union  (UFAWU) secretary-treasurer  Dennis Brown attacked "the  recreational fishing sector" for  blaming the commercial fish-  erics about "wiping oul BC's  wild coho stocks."  Coho have chosen to migrate  oul instead of "residing in inside  waters in 1994," Brown said.  "Il's too had that fishing  opportunities did not measure  up to the expectations of many  within the recreational communily, bul il is unfair to lay blame  on commercial fishermen," he  said, adding there were "paid  observers" on many commercial  fishing crafts to make sure steel-  head, coho and chinook catches  were within limits.  Hugh Gadsby, owner of Lord  Jim's Resort Hotel which specializes in fishing charters, said  the recreation side of fishing is  getting a smaller share of  salmon stocks all the lime.  "There jusl seems to be less  and less for the recreational fishery, which is worth a tremendous amount more lhan the  commercial industry," he said,  citing an estimated $100 million  in spin-off businesses to BC  from recreational fishing.  Gadsby doesn't lay all Ihe  blame on Ihe commercial fishing indusiry. Instead, he points  to a larger industrial picture,  including logging, mills and  mining and Ihe subsequent pollution to the ocean and feeder  streams.  As well, a lot of the salmon  lhal have opted lo trek northwest into the open ocean - Ihe  salmon Brown believes will  return in "sufficient" numbers -  are being scarfed up by "high  seas pirates.  "Asian fleets are killing fish  out in the ocean," he said. As  well, if the province and Ihe  industries don't do something  quickly, in 10 years the Pacific  fishing industry will go the way  of the Atlantic fishing industry,  he said.  'Eventually,  there won't be  any left and  we'll all suffer'  -lliifth Gadsby  ,       .    ,     ���-���  "If everyone doesn't get on  Ihe bandwagon and help clean il  up and enhance il (stocks),  you're looking at the same Ihing  lhat has happened on the East  Coasl. I think the commercial  fishing industry should be left  up to a few companies that catch  the fish at specific times."  Gadsby's comments reflect  Brown's concerns.  "ll is lime for lodge owners,  charier operators and entrepreneurs that purport lo speak  for recreational anglers, lo drop  their confrontational style. If we  are lo protect and, indeed, promote our coho, chinook and  sleelhead slocks we will need a  more mature and cooperative  approach," Brown urged.  "Oh that's interesting,"  responded a Sunshine Coast  fishing charier owner speaking  on terms of anonymity. "And  what have Ihey done apart from  ihe occasional nod of seasonal  goodwill, with small donations  here and there to hatcheries or  farms?"  According to the Sunshine  Coasl Salmonid Enhancement  Society ��� nol much.  "When we were trying to buy  Ihis hatchery (Chapman Creek),  I went to every outlet connected  to the fishing industry (in Ihe  Vancouver area) and I never got  a dime out of them ��� not one  nickel," said SCSES president  Bill Chinnick.  Not lhat there haven't been  donations made lo Ihe society,  such as $300 from the Sunshine  Coasl UFAWU local, but in  comparison, Gadsby's annual  Lord Jim's Fishing Derby has  raised over $35,000 the past few  years for the hatchery.  "I really don'l know where  we'd be without them (Lord  Jim's)," Chinnick said.  Along with strong support  from the Sechelt Indian Government District and from "about  six" commercial fishermen on  the Coast, the majority of the  support for the hatchery, which  released nearly one million  salmon into the Strait of Georgia  last year, has come from "the  fishing marinas and charter people. As a group, they've really  helped," Chinnick said.  "Ninety per cent of the fish  put out are caught by commercial fishermen and they put very  little back in return," said hatchery manager Bob Anstead.  While the two sides remain al  odds, they're also very close  together in their beliefs. It's jusl  a matter of better communications and working together  more, Brown said.  "Could it be that working to  overcome these problems has  less media appeal than demonstrations and blockades against  ihe commercial fishing scape  goat?" he asked.  Yet, the two sides could  work together to make sure "the  worst effects of poor logging  practices, pulp mill effluent,  municipal sewage, highway  development, not to mention the  effects of the Kemano expansion project" are avoided,  Brown said.  Gadsby agrees and a good  start for the commercial sector  would be to chip in and aid  enhancement projects.  "They're putting nothing  back into the resource. They're  just taking. Eventually, there  won't be any left and we'll all  suffer."  Search for missing beachcomber  called off, family remains hopeful  by Roxanne Gregory  The search for local log salvager Tom Johnson was called  off by the Coasl Guard Tuesday  aflernoon, Sepl. 13 afler a massive Ihree day search.  Johnson left Saltery Bay in  his boal Ihe 26 foot Inlet Rebel,  heading for Campbell River on  Sept. 4.  lie was reported missing by  his lamily when he failed lo  return lasl Salurday.  Marine controller Max Birch,  from Ihe Victoria rescue control  cenlre, explained why Ihe search  was called off: "We had quite  number of Coasl Guard auxiliary vessels combing the area.  and we called in bolh the Mallard and the Poinl Race vessels.  Additionally we had air cover  with Buffalo aircraft and  Labrador helicopters out of  Comox."  "Debris was found, including  a sneaker, a jar of candies, a  diesel barrel and a salvage rope  in Deep Waler Bay. These items  were positively identified hy his  brolher Ted. as belonging lo  Johnson and Ihe Inlet Rebel."  Birch continued.  "By tracing his phone calls  through BC Tel, we were able lo  generally locale his last position  al Ihe mouth of Seymour Narrows. His last call coincides  with an 11 knot tide in the area,  and based on the debris found,  the fact thai Ihe weather was  good, and the extensive nature  of Ihe search, we have concluded he was losl al sea."  According lo friends. Johnson's family haven't given up  hope and are continuing lo  search the surrounding area  where the debris was found  Described by former co-workers  as an honest, hardworking 'bear  of a man,' Johnson has survived  a number of near disasters in ihe  pasl.  In his forties. Johnson is married and has four children.

Let's say, for instance, we are a large coastal employer with a  few tax problems. It seems, following an audit, that we owe the  government a lot of money.  Maybe this has happened for a number of years... Yes, we are a  company which is regularly found guilty of lax-paying complacency - we can usually be found on the government's black list  of non-compliant tax-scofflaws.  This year, however, while we understand that the tax laws are  applicable to everyone, we enlist the aid of lawyers and make our  case for special treatment. "We'll be hiring a new accountant new  next year," we say. "We're sure to have all our problems solved  by then."  Or perhaps we plead that we've just upgraded our computer  system and we're still wrestling with the demands of improved  technology.  Then again, maybe we argue that the tax structure we are faced  with is too high (considering how much we contribute to the betterment of the province) so we should receive special treatment.  And lo and behold the government grants us our wish....Rather  than be fined for indiscretions, rather than make the dreaded taxpayer scofflaw list, we are simply allowed to continue operations  apace. The government, in essence, turns a blind eye.  For us as a large company this seems like a good thing. Everyone else, however, is now going to have to carry our share of the  tax load.  This is essentially what the government is doing with its noncompliance list of provincial polluters. The purpose of the list is  to encourage municipalities and companies to respect the laws  laid down regarding toxic emissions.  ���Woodfibre fails its testing for an eighth year but avoids the  list by saying new technology is being installed.  ���In Powell River, an outdated, outmoded municipal garbage  incinerator spews merrily along in non-compliance while the  local government applies to keep it in operation.  ���Down at Howe Sound Pulp and Paper - which admittedly has  done more than most to polish its pollution image - the powers  that be have also failed to meet their permitted pollution levels  but avoid the list by applying to have the mill's pollution limits  raised.  Isn't that a neat trick. The government sets certain standards of  pollution control, but instead of chastising those who fail to meet  them, the province will consider lowering its standards until compliance is achieved.  Is there something wrong here?  The problem seems to lie more on the government side of  things rather than with the companies. And the solutions may not  be that simple. Many of the province's most notable polluters  have had a pretty free reign to do so for the last fifty years and  trying to whip them into shape is not such an easy task.  Still, it has to be done, and only the government is in a position to do it.  And if the situation has been thought through and a strategy is  in place to bring provincial pollution levels down, then nothing  should stand in the way. The fines for exceeding pollution levels  should be heavy, the punishment for exceeding pollution limits  should be swift, and the various whining, whinging, lawyer-proffered reasons for exceeding pollution standards should be disregarded.  At the very least, everyone found in non-compliance with the  set pollution standards should appear on the non-compliance list.  The technology for a cleaner world exists. The taxing issue is  how to push the government into insisting on compliance over  complacency.  LOOK, KIP, JUST  BE THANKFUL  ITS NOT THAT  I        RAID GUY...  GIBSONS DECLARES WAR ON TENT CATERPILLARS...    (See story page 7.)  letters  Mental health a  community issue  With all Ihe hoo-ha over Kirkland Centre becoming a residence for people wilh mental illness, a history lessons seems to  be in order.  Up to the early 1800s the  mentally ill not killed for being  witches or possessed by devils  were housed in places like St.  Mary's of Bethlehem in London.  They were fed, sort of, and kept  chained and naked in what  amounted to uncleaned stables.  London society used to go for an  afternoon's entertainment in Bedlam (as St. Mary's came to be  called.) Frequently, the inmates  were tortured for the crowd's  entertainment, since it was common knowledge that "the mad  fell no pain."  ' In the mid-l800s, Elizabeth  Frye in England and Dorothea  Dix in the U.S. campaigned for  better treatment of the mad with  mixed success. The "entertainment" aspect of the hospitals  ceased, the mad were fed and  clothed and housed in clean conditions. But since no one understood the cause of their afflictions, little was done to cure  them.  In the lale 1800s and early  1900s, Sigmund Freud and his  colleagues were able to cure  many and these people returned  to active and useful lives in the  community. Perhaps the psychologists' greatest contribution was  to rename the "mad" the "mentally ill." "Madness" connotes  "incurability" and "being out of  control." "Mental illness," like  other illnesses, is neither a "loss  of control" nor "incurable."  Then in the 50s came tranquilizers and in the 70s the other psychotropic drugs. Places like  Riverview Hospital began  shrinking as patients were  returned to the community. Their  return was met with cries of  "We'll all be murdered in our  beds!"  One of the discoveries of the  80s was that the mentally ill were  not helped by isolating them  from the community. Indeed,  sending them away from friends  and family often aggravated their  illnesses. So the mentally ill are  being reintegrated into the community.And the community  meets ihem with cries of "They'll  molest our children" and "our  property values will drop." The  sad facts are:  a. more than 90 per cent of  molested children are attacked by  someone they know and trust;  b. any real estates salesman  can tell you, property values go  up and down like a west coasl  barometer and are as easy to  influence.  Whatever happened to "Walk  a mile in my shoes," and "Love  thy neighbour as thyself/"  Karen Phillips  Sunshine Coast  Mood Disorders Association  Ecuador dissent  An open letter to the SCRD.  During a conversation with  Larry Jardine this morning he  suggested that I write to you  expressing the views I presented  to him.  The issue under consideration  concerns the SCRD plan to travel  to Ecuador. The reason for the  journey, 1 am told by Mr. Jardine,  is to exchange "technical" information regarding municipal  infrastructure issues; for example, methods of sewage/garbage  control. He also lold me thai ihis  initiative is part of a federally  funded program that finds ways  to link municipalities in Canada  wilh those in other countries.  letters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of  public interest.

VON 1V0  Now, while all of the above  sounds fairly benign and above-  board, I should like lo poinl out  thai such is not the case. If we are  going to trade ideas with another  country, then why are we travelling to one where human rights  are held in such low regard?  Amnesty International has very  well documented (he state of  affairs in Ecuador and they are  very little better lhan places like  Brazil or Haiti.  Of course, I can hear you asking at this point, what has all Ihis  lo do with a technical information exchange? A great deal, in  my opinion. Does not agreement  lo participate in such an undertaking suggest or imply lhal we  are willing lo close our eyes lo  whal is happening to many of ils  citizens? Even worse, does it nol  sbPW.hypocrisy of ihe.worsl f  type? We are willing lo travel in  comfort and security lo such a  venue, all Ihe while ignoring  social conditions that would not  be tolerated in Canada.  Furthermore whal happens lo  human rights in Ecuador is our  business, jusl as human rights in  all parts of the world are our  business. Therefore, I would urge  you lo ask Ihe federal government lo assign you lo a place  where people enjoy democratic  rights similar lo ours and lhal you  make clear lo Ihem, why you are  requesting this change. We must  slarl somewhere, even al the  lowly municipal level, lo show  lhat we will stand on principles  lhal are more important than  "technical" or trade exchanges.  RUTH HOULE  Sechell  Packing up and rolling on back toward the mountains  "I'm a thousand miles from nowhere and there's  no place 1 want to be."  That Dwight Yoakam tune kept wafting out of  the computer pit on production days at the Coast  News last Christmas and I couldn't quite put my  finger on why I liked it.  I Figured it out soon after I discovered I had to  leave ihe Coast News.  My wife and I came out here EXACTLY one  year ago, toting with us a two week old daughter,  two dogs constantly in need of a .22 slug fired into  their puny brains and a household of... stuff.  We left a place we'd lived most of our married  lives before we came out here. We rolled the dice.  I've liked most of the places I've lived in hut  I've always found someplace I liked more. As  Yoakam gurgles, "and there's no place I want to  be."  It's the lot of a community journalist io travel the  country, working at different papers, learning under  different editors, experiencing different areas,  becoming intimate wilh the workings of these areas  and. in most cases, with Iheir bars.  I have come ��� I have tasted ��� and for the first  time in my life, I've tasted a place that didn't taste  as good as ihe last place.  It's weird. The Sunshine Coast is as beautiful a  place as there is in the entire world. It's lousy with  some of the most talented artists in the land, it's  in the middle  home to top-notch environmentalists and scholars  and quite frankly, Ihe place's general intelligence  quotient is higher than everywhere else I've lived. If  potential was a carcass and the people wilh potential living here were maggots ��� the carcass would  be crawling.  Stephen King would deem the carcass "disgusting."  The Pacific Coast and indeed the Sunshine  Coast, is a magnet for a large portion of the besl  people living in Canada and why nol.  Last winter was the easiest winter I've ever had  the joy to experience. But, Dwight Yoakam you be  damned, we've actually found a place we want to  be and no offence to the Sunshine Coast ��� it ain't  here.  The Windermere Valley is as beauliful a place as  Ihere is in Ihe world. There's quite a few maggots  Ian cobb  but Stephen King would pass il by wilh a smug  sniff.  Then again, I've always maintained Ihe guy is  WAY loo over-raled.  I once wrote lhal my soul was stapled to Ihe soil  Ihere and when we moved out here a year ago, I had  lo tear myself lose. Well, I guess ihe soil held a  lighter grip than I thought.  The real reason we're leaving, one stride ahead  of all the pseudo-philosophical reasons, is Ihe facl I  want to sel up camp in a place where I can begin  building equily.  My heart goes oul lo all the young couples with  kids here on Ihe Wesl Coasl, Irying lo get your  hooks inlo the elusive beast equily as il storms off  inlo the future ��� toward your children's destinies.  This parenthood business has really put a  damper on Dwight Yoakamisms. Il's a regular  snowfence for ihe drifter in you!  Equity, on ihe Coasl, is overhunted and catching  hold for a ride isn'l likely for ihe sub-$40,000-a-  year couples here.  The worst part aboul leaving Ihe Coast is saying  goodbye lo all the cat's bum folks (read: good  souls) at the Coasl News. You folks in readers land  really haven't gol a clue how damned bees knees-  like these people are.  I'm proud and nay - lei's corn ihis up lo the max  - honoured to say I've worked wilh the likes of Stu  Burnside, Darah Hansen, Joel Johnstone and Jane  Seyd, as well as Don Anderson and Larry Marshall.  May each and everyone of you never have your  tongues pulled by aliens. And if you should be captured and ihey slarl doing tests on you, don't cry out  in pain ��� the sounds of human shrieks of pain  resemble the ugliest insults in Iheir language.  Nature can he so cruel.  To all Ihe Newsies...because I can'l go into individual sappy diatribes due to all Ihe space I've wasted lo gel to Ihis moment ��� our door is always  open.  To all Ihe folks I've hunted, haunted, hassled and  hounded ��� I salute you and to Jeanette, Lee, (i(,rd  and gumbooters galore���may your gumboots forever make loud sucking noises on Ihe beach.

Time to put away  the summer whiles and bring the  sweaters out of slorage. The  leaves are turning colour and  tailing, the light is fading, the  rain has started. People now go  inside and start working on  indoor projects. This is a perfect  time lo start the school year.  September, by its name,  would suggest Ihe seventh  monlh, and in ihe old Roman  calendar, it was. But Julius Caesar changed all that in 46 B.C.  and Pope Gregory XIII made  further changes 1,500 years  later, giving us our current Gregorian calendar.  If September was the seventh  monlh in ancient Rome, lhal  would make February the  twelfth month, recipient of all  the leftover minutes and hours al  ihe end of Ihe year and subject  to change.  This is the reason for there  being "30 days in September,  April, June and November...  except for February."  In Ihe 6,000-year-old Jewish  calendar, September, or Tishri,  is the firsl month of the civic  year. Rosh Hashanah, celebrated  the first week in September, is  the Jewish New Year. In the  ecclesiastical year, March is the  first month.  According to the Jewish calendar, Adar would be February,  either the sixth month or Ihe  twelfth month, and there are  some very complicated calcula-  a few words  tions involving the addition of  an extra 29-day monlh, Adar  Sheni, lo accommodate the extra  hours.  September brings the end of  summer and the beginning of a  new phase in the natural year.  Every gardener  knows Ihe impor- _____  tance of cleaning  up the garden in  the autumn,  because deep in  the depths of winter darkness, new  life will form in  curled up leaves  and    heaps    of          debris. There will  still be activity  underground. Bulbs planted now  will bloom in February.  September spells school. A  new year, new friends, new  clothes, new information. But  each September also brings a  renewal of friendships. If we're  lucky, old school pals will  remain friends for life.  So much of our early years  are spent in learning routines,  reciting Ihe alphabet, the multi-  patrlcla wolfe  plication tables. The cycle that  begins in September becomes  familiar and somehow comforting.  September, for me, was an  unusually difficult monlh the  year afler I joined the workforce.    It   was          September, lime  lo start anew, bul  I was doing the  same old job,  scanning aerial  photographs of  farmers' fields to  determine what  percentage was        planted   in   the  desired crop of  the day. We were  taught how lo distinguish wheat  from canola (at that time called  rape) and to determine percentage of acreage based on the contents of a photograph.  We worked in the basemenl  of the Federal Building, an art  deco building across the street  from Ihe Hotel Saskatchewan  and Victoria Park in Regina. I  have photos of the Federal  Building decked oul in red,  For three months  I floated around  in a cloud of  nonchalance  while and blue wilh Liz and Phil  driving by in Iheir horse-drawn  carriage.  That September, I developed  a very strange nervous habit that  drove me to the washroom every  five minules. I just had to gel  away from those photographs  and that job.  At the time I thought there  was something physically wrong  wilh me and made an appointment wilh our family doctor, a  little Armenian man who  smoked and drank coffee. He  prescribed Valium.  For three months I floated  around in a cloud of nonchalance. I thought I was acting  normally, until one day while  playing a game of Yahtsee wilh  my friend Marsha, she blurted  out lhat I was "stoned all Ihe  lime" and couldn't I "see what  was happening?"  I did. And the nexl September, Ihere was no need for Valium.  Years later I look back at Ihe  journals I've kept and I see that  in most Septembers I was busy  painting or having my teeth  cleaned or going to Quebec.  This September may be Ihe  best time to visit Ihe Belle  Province, witnessing the apparent euphoria of having the Quebec election decided. Next  September you may need a passport.

A  simple inquiry at Ihe hot dog  MIYTOGETHEI  Today it is quite common for  friends io pool their resources to  buy a larger home that neither  could afford alone. Whether a  starter home for two young  people or a retirement lifestyle, it  often makes sense. Some  builders cater specifically to this  group of buyers, even offering  homes with two elaborate  "master suites", instead of the  more typical room arrangement  thai assumes Mom, Dad and  several children. If you are  considering such a purchase,  make certain lhat you and your  friend sel out clear agreements as  to how you will handle it if one  wants to move out.  Before committing yourselves to  a property, sit down with your  lawyer and discuss the various  options you will have. Should  you take possession as joint  tenants1 Will you have a SO'So  interest in the property, or  should it he adjusted to reflect  ihe disparities in the down  payment or share of the  mortgage payment? You and  your buying partner should have  very clearly communicated  agreements with each other, then  have your lawyer get them down  in writing Once this has heen  done you can make your offer; it  may be the perfect way for  friends to improve their lifestyle  and maximize their investment  If you are considering a move,  contact  JonMcftarat  Sumcx Beaky - Gtoon  ������6-2277 (office)  8*6-3999 (home)  SUSSEX  REALTY  stand or phone call to the  licensed owner (the business  licence and heallh permit being  prominently displayed al the  stand) would have clarified any  concerns Ihe columnist would  have had.

Miss  Charboneau's dog attacked  myself and my dog ( a seven-  month-old black Lab who was  on a leash).  She lold me her dog was  blind which was obvious  because il couldn't distinguish  between me and my dog when  attacking. Fearing for my own  safety is why I told her if she  didn't slop him I would have lo  let my dog go.  In Ihe ensuing battle of  approximately five minutes,  Miss Charboneau jusl stood  there and did nothing until her  neighbour stopped her dog.  I proceeded to walk my dog  and my seven-year-old son  down the hill at which lime  Miss Charboneau's father drove  down to see me (I'm assuming).  At Ihis point he did look at me,  put his truck in reverse and he  went back home.  I then walked back past their  home and made eye contact  with the fqlher an^e sj^lj,,  didn't say anything. ��� ]r, -,  Another point I would like lo  clarify is thai my wife and I  don'l really consider ourselves  "tourists" like Miss Charboneau  is assuming. My wife's parents  live in Madeira Park and we  have been coming lo visit for  years.  When we took our dog for a  walk (as I did that day), our dog  was on a leash and, as always, I  was carrying bags for picking  up his "deposits."  If you want lo complain  about "tourists" letting their  dogs do their thing on your lawn  maybe, Miss Charboneau, you  should take a walk up and down  your own hill jusl to the side off  Ihe road - beware of where you  step - your "local" dogs have  left many, many "deposits."

Corp. John de Jong of Ihe  Sechelt RCMP detachment said  police are exploring "all possibilities" regarding the death,  including murder and suicide.  Lab results from an autopsy  on Van Popta have determined  he died of asphyxia.  Other lest results conducted  at the same time should be  available before Ihe end of the  month and will likely serve to  narrow the focus of the police  investigation, de Jong said.  Meanwhile, he said, "It is  (still) an unexplained death."  Van Popta's body was discovered mid-afternoon Sunday,  Aug. 28 at his rented home off  Highway 101 near Pender Harbour.  A large rock, weighing  approximately 450 pounds, was  found on top of the man's body.  "How it (the rock) got there  is still something we are determining," de Jong said.  Home support workers talk strike  by Darah Hansen  Sunshine Coast home support  workers are poised for a strike,  the result of collapsed talks  between the union representing  Ihe workers and Ihe province.  The over 60 workers on the  Coast are part of the BC Government and Service Employee's  Union which rejected a government offer of a six year contract,  ending bargaining negotiations  between Ihe Iwo sides Friday,  Sepl. 9.  The union represents about  2,000 home support workers  throughout the province who  provide in-home care for infirm  and menially disabled patients.  The workers are employed by 15  non-profit agencies, funded by  Ihe provincial government.  The workers have been without a contract since March 31,  1992.  Strike aclion has been mounting in other parls of Ihe province.  About 350 home support workers in Victoria began strike  action August 20. The union has  threatened expanding labour  action into Vancouver, the  Lower Mainland and smaller  community support services  around the province.  Meanwhile, Virginia  Reynolds, a Coast home support  worker and bargaining chair for  the province, said a strike vote  has not yet been taken locally.  Whether that will happen, she  sjiid, "I don'l know yet...we're  very, very upset."  If a strike vote i.s taken, Ihe  union must give 72 hours nolice  before calling a strike.  Reynolds said the workers,  mainly women, feel "betrayed"  by the government which is  pushing to keep more patients in  their own homes rather than in  hospital beds bul refusing to  increase salaries to recognize the  workers as educated profession  als. "We do everything except  give the shots," said Reynolds of  the duties required of home support workers.  Currently, home support  workers eam $8.35 to $12.35 per  hour, with no minimum number  of hours per week.  The union claims people who  do similar work in provincial  institutions, long term care facilities and extended care homes  enjoy significantly higher waged,'  benefits and working conditions. '  ' According to a press release;  the union rejected the govern-''  ment's latest offer, calling; it  "extraordinarily long'term  (which) no union can accepl."  Reynolds said the length of  the contract would leave workers  worse off financially when it  expired than they are already.  She declined to discuss the  government's offer, calling the  proposed pay increase "nickels  and dimes."  Fall web worm strikes Sunshine  Coast trees... Gibsons takes steps  by Jane Seyd  They hang from your fruil  trees in filmy grey tents, hundreds of larvae awaiting the  right moment. Then they start  eating everything in Iheir path.  A scene from the nexl  Stephen King movie coming to  Gibsons?  Not quite.  Just the latest installment of  Hyphantria cunea, now playing  in your back yard.  The fall web worm, or tent  caterpillar, has arrived in force  on Ihe lower Sunshine Coast.  "There are certainly a lol of  Ihem on the Coasl this year,"  said Gibsons Mayor Eric Small.  "This seems to be Ihe worst year  I've known."  Recently. Gibsons placed  advertisements warning property owners of the "dramatic"  infestation of caterpillars.  Small said he's had lo take  down tents on his own properly  three times so far.  Bob Duncan, an entomologist with the Canadian foresl  service in Victoria, sail/ Ihe web  worm is a problem all across the  continent right now, bul is in far  greater evidence in the East.  This year the sight of the  caterpillar tents is common, but  it's not an outbreak like the one  which happened Ihree or four  years ago, he said.  Usually the worm makes  tents in red alder trees. But cherry, walnut and other deciduous  trees are also often targets. Each  tent can have 100 or more larvae  inside and can be a metre or  more in diameter, said Duncan.  As the caterpillars eal, they  strip the leaves off the trees, but  usually don't kill the branches.  Because the caterpillars  strike lale in the growing season, "the damage lends lo be  more aesthetic than anything  else," said Duncan.  Residents can gel rid of the  tents by taking Ihem down and  Is  either burning them or squashing them.  Meanwhile, is Ihere anything  good to say about the lowly web  worm?  Well mainly, they're food for  other animals like birds, said  Duncan. And "it's part of the  nalural cycle of things."

Community newspaper readership has grown by  1,371,000 English adults in the past five years.  by George Cooper  My Aunt Anastie was brisk  as a bee one Augusi picking Ihe  lush crop of blackberries here  on our own Sunshine Coast.  Blackberries were an adventure  for her; she knew all about low  bush blueberries and cranberries  in Steep Creek, Saskatchewan,  but the blackberry thorns were a  challenge to her tough spirit.  Now my Aunt Anastie is,  well, buxom and we could not  completely outfit her for protection againsl the blackberry  thorns.  We did find a long-sleeved  shirt which she managed to button at the neck but no further,  along with my yellow rubber  boots and gray work socks. No  overalls. Overalls were only for  farm chores, she said.  We began picking along a  footpath above a steep bank al  Gower Poinl - this was some  years ago - at different points  along the path.  Determined to pick more  berries lhan Aunl, I moved on to  the most productive stretch of  hushes and so lost sight of het  but not the sound of her muttered annoyance at the blackberry stems snatching at her dress.  A violent shriek from Aunt  brought me scurrying to where  she had been picking. No sign  of her.  Then from somewhere under  the blackberry bushes down the  bank came her voice loudly  sounding her annoyance. She  had over-reached the edge and  crashed down the slope.  When I scrambled and  slashed my way down to her she  told me she wasn't hurt but  every berry had spilled from Ihe  Since Ihe Fall Fair was on and Ihe Gibsons Marina was doing up Iheir 10th anniversary, Ihe Gibsons  Yacht Club decided lo pul on some celebrations loo, cutting their second anniversary cake for  members and visitors alike and providing tours ot the building. Joel Johnstone pholo  milk carton tied around her  waist. She demanded I pick  Ihem up immediately.  "Let's get you out of here  first, Aunt," I said. Since she  was far too much for me lo lift, I  scrambled to the house directly  above the footpath.  The man there came down to  look. "The Iwo of us won't get  her to her feet, what wilh Ihe  blackberry thorns and the  slope," he said. Whal to do? The  man dragged out Ihe cable from  the winch on his boat trailer  parked beside his house bul it  wouldn't reach the path and he  had no extra rope.  "I'll call Ihe tow truck," he  said. "What will that cost," I  wondered out loud. "Try using  your Automobile Club card," he  said.  The tow truck man parked in  the yard of the house above Ihe  footpath, came down, look a  look, then covered his grin with  his hand.  All this time Aunt is bellowing orders at me and I'm very  rapidly becoming a battle  fatigue case.  The tow truck man bandaged  Aunt's ankles together, put his  truck cable hook in the bandage  and winched her up to the path.  Of course hanging head down  Aunt's dress fell over her head.  Good Heavens, she still wore  the voluminous pink bloomers,  the kind I'd seen on her clothesline when I was a kid.  Aunt Anastie blamed me for  Ihe accident and demanded  everyone turn around and not  look until she got her dress  adjusted.  She was mollified, however,  when I handed her my carton of  berries saying they were Ihe  berries she had picked and lhat  I'd gathered off the ground.  Aunt Anastie didn't visit the  Coasl ever again.  Davis Bay seal pup dies  despite rescue efforts  by Jane Seyd  Quick work on Ihe pari of a  local resident, police and Ihe  wildlife rehabilitation centre  was enough to give a wounded  seal pup a fighting chance at Ihe  Vancouver Aquarium's recovery program last weekend, but  in Ihe end was not enough lo  save Ihe animal.  On Sepl.  10, a        local woman spotted  the very young female seal pup stuck  in a kelp bed at Davis  Bay.  Police who responded to the call  noticed the animal  was wounded on its         face and throat, and  drove Ihe seal lo the wildlife  rehabilitation cenlre in Halfmoon Bay. Later the pup was  flown lo Vancouver by Coastal  Western Airlines where the  aquarium has a recovery program for young seals. The seal  died Iwo days later.  "She was in trouble from the  very beginning," said Marisa  Nichini, a spokeswoman for the  aquarium.  Unfortunately, said Nichini,  seal pups that don't make il are  "part and parcel of having a seal  pup rescue program."  "Seals as a species are pretty  hardy," she said, but before the  pups reach one month old  "they're extremely dependent on  She was in  troublefrom  the very  beginning  ���Marisa Nichini  their mothers."  Joanne Dickeson of the  wildlife rehab centre said it's  possible Ihe seal's wounds were  caused by being caught up in a  fishing net.  Results of a post-morlem  have not yet been completed.  The seal flown down Sept. 10  was the fourth pup  ~~~~~"     brought    to    the  aquarium from the  Sunshine Coast Ihis  year. All four seals  later died.  Nichini said the  age of the seals - all  four were only one  week old - probably        had a lol lo do with  the high death rale.  "That's the worst possible time  for a harbour seal to be without  its mother," she said.  Many of the young seals  brought lo the aquarium do survive, said Nichini. Most spend  two lo three monlhs in Ihe  recovery program before being  released back into the wild.  Dickeson said the rehab centre has received about 30 calls  on seal pups so far Ihis year.  Unless a seal pup is injured,  il should be left where it is and  observed for 24 hours before  any aclion is taken, she said.  The reason is mothers usually  leave their pups on the shore  while they go off and hunt for  food.

Many volunteers prefer to  gel on wilh the job without a lol  of fanfare. But there are occasions when volunteers should be  recognized.  Flo McSavanay is retiring  from the Roberts Creek Library  after more than 35 years of service.  She has seen the library grow  from a small back room with a  few donated books to the  bustling 12 hour a week operation today.  The staff now numbers 18  volunteers and the library has  approximately 8,000 volumes on  its shelves.  Recently at the library general meeting Flo was presented  with a certificate thanking her  for her wonderful contribution.  It was learned that without Flo's  devoted service in the past, we  might never have had our own  library in the Creek. .  Service on this level is done  for the love of it and can never  be repaid. Words are paltry  things at best, but the library  committee feels sure that all the  reading population of Roberts  Creek will join us in saying  thank you Flo McSavanay.

Library news  Wise Jane Austen wrote "Let  other pens dwell on guilt and  misery." Many readers of modern novels may wish their  authors had followed that sage  advice.  If your wish is to read about  people with whom you might  wish to take to tea, there is still  hope.  Have you tried Fried Green  Tomatoes by F. Flagg, or read  novels by Anne Tyler, Joanne  Trollope or Rosamunde Pilcher?  To these names we can now add  that of Barbara Kingsolver.  We now have Animal  Dreams, The Bean Trees and  Pigs in Heaven. We will buy  more in the future.  For those who prefer stronger  fare, may we suggest All the  Pretty Horses by Cormac  McCarthy.  This book was strongly recommended by Mel Hurtig in the  course of his festival speech. As  usual, the Roberts Creek Library  has a copy on its shelves.

Background - in July of  1993 the SCHC steering committee was elected by the community in response to (he provincial ministry of health's new  .directions initiative.  Over Ihe past 15 months the  steering committee has met  weekly to plan for the SCCHC.  They have asked our community for input lo this process  though a series of community  forums, surveys and request for  proposals.

The Interim Communily  Health Council will consist of  nine members:  ��� three chosen from our elected officials (municipal councils,  regional district and school  board);  ��� three appointed from current  board members of non-profit  societies funded 50 per cenl or  more by the Ministry of Health;  ��� three members from Ihe  community at large, selected by  the steering committee.  The role of CHC will be to  provide direction, policy and  vision for the Sunshine Coast  health system as a whole.

More lhan 130 firefighters  from all over the Lower Mainland converged on the coast in  the annual fundraiser lo benefit  salmonid enhancement programs.  Organizer Ted Cameron  explained, "For years we ran Ihe  derby raising money for Ihe burn  unil. Now stations in Vancouver  and Richmond have taken over  thai project. We thought it was  about time we gave something  back to Ihe resource. Good fishing and good resource management go hand in hand."  This year firefighters landed  30 springs, 45 coho, 7 cod, and  dogfish by Ihe dozens. Larry  West, a six year veteran of Ihe  derby, won firsl place with an IS  Ib. 8 oz. spring caught off Ihe  soulh end of Sangster Island. "I'd  run out of live herring, and I was  using cut plug when it hit. We  were only in about 10 feet of  water off the soulh end and there  were some concerns we might  run aground, ll was an unbelievable fight, and then the drag nut  came off the reel and il fell apart.  Pieces of the reel fell overboard,  and I didn't think we were going  lo land him."  West won an all expenses paid  trip to Langara Island Lodge in  Ihe Queen Charlotte Islands. Second place, and a 12 foot  Hourston Glasscraft runabout  with molor and trailer went to  Dell Possy with a 16 pound 13  ounce spring, with third place  FRESH,  FRESH,  FRESH!

The earlier people start to smoke, the more likely they are to become  addicted and suffer from tobacco-related illnesses.  Smoking kills over 5,000 British Columbians each year and costs taxpayers,  through the provincial health system, over $1 billion.  The provincial government has introduced a new law to help protect young  people from tobacco addiction:  __ It it now illegal to sell tobacco products to anyone under the age of 19.  Q Tobacco vendor* must display health warning and age limit signs.  Q Photo ID is required if a purchaser's age is in question.

Within a matter of weeks,  everything your child says will  be prefaced by "Teacher says..."  Your balloon will be burst as you  suddenly encounter the first challenge to your overall influence  on this little mind.  Our three sons are all children  of the 50s, a time perhaps that  was less stressful, less structured  and catered a bit more to the  individualistic approach. Economically, wages were low  although jobs were plenty and  most people functioned day to  day paying their bills and raising  their family. We were no exception.  When our eldest son, Gerry,  started school in 1957 we felt no  one was more ready to begin his  adventure into the outside world  than he. Eager lo go, to learn, lo  absorb, it was with a tinge of  sadness I took his hand and  walked with him for the first  time to a place that he would ultimately spend the greater part of  his life, to date, school.  Wilhin a matter of weeks, this  inquisitive little mind would  become a veritable storeroom of  knowledge all gleaned from  'teacher' - most everything he  had been taught by mom and dad  was incidental, teacher was the  paragon of all there could be.  Sound familiar? Always loving  school he soon learned some of  life's cruel lessons out there in  that new world he was unfamiliar  wilh. He came lo realize lhat not  all children are kind, compassionate, or caring.  He met the bullies, the ones  who take their frustrations and  turn them into aggressive and  violent behaviour towards others,  usually the smallest and the  weakest. He encountered the  users, the takers, the I've got  mine, who cares aboul you?  types.  One of the hardest things we  had lo do as parents was to try  and help all our boys to under  stand that all people are not the  same. That there are varied reasons why some children act as  they dq, but it is extremely hurtful when your child comes home  crying because someone has  been mean to another child and  Ihey don't understand why.  School is a training ground  for most kids and it can be a  good solid foundation for them  to begin their tick through life if  they allow it to be. It is like a  launching pad to life, how they  relate to others, how and what  they learn and what (hey ultimately do with it, the choices  they make, il is all wilhin their  grasp. I firmly believe thai most  teachers are there because they  feel they can make a difference.  Remember Annie Sullivan who  taught Helen Keller? What a  contribution thai lady made.

Joel Jnhnslonc photo  Sunshine Coast Sharks dead in the water  by Ian Cobb  The Sunshine Coasl Sharks have slopped  moving.  They're dead.  Afler three seasons playing in and against  Royal City Hockey League opponents, Ihe  Sechell-based Sharks have called it quits.  "ll doesn't look good. If there were Iwo  sheets of ice here, it might be a little different," said player/manager Tom Poulton.  Ice time isn't the only thing the club  lacked and isn't the only reason the team has  bowed oul of the 1994/95 hockey season,  Poulton said.  The main reason the club is having to call  it quits is the lack of dedicated players.  "Most of the lime last year there were  seven or eight guys that were steady. Once  in a while they'd miss a game and we'd be in  trouble,'' Poulton said.  And when the club crossed Howe Sound  in search of prey, or in Ihe vast majority of  cases, when they offered themselves up as  chum for more talented teams with larger  population-bases to work from, Poulton and  the small group of regular players had to  scramble to find enough bodies to ice a  team.  "You've gol to have pretty close to ihree  or Iwo and a half full lines," he said, or the  grind of the full contact games would wear  them down loo quickly.  on the rocks  Along with the burdens and expenses of  travelling, which the club only did four limes  last winter, it wasn't the easiest task in ihe  world attracting new players or old players  back to a team that won only six per cenl of  all Ihe games ihey played.  'We could never complain  about our fan support,  considering our record'  -Tom I'otiltoii  "Our record in the last three years, you  know, it was hard on the guys," Poulton  said, adding that the club did at least end  their tenure on a winning note, wilh a tie and  win in their last two games of the 1993/94  season. The three points pushed iheir record  lo about four wins, four ties and 52 losses.  Poulton speaks fondly of the fans who  supported the club over it's three year history-  "We could never complain about our fan  support, considering our record," he said.  The Sharks drew an average of about 100  people lo the Sunshine Coast arena last winter. "If we were competitive enough lo have  close games all Ihe lime and maybe win 75  per cenl of our homes games, losing lo Ihe  better teams, it would've been belter," Poulton said.  "It's too bad. Near Ihe end of lasl year we  were starting to put it together. We ended it  nol bad," he said.  The question now is whether or not the  Shark's have been done in by Sheriff Brody  for good or if there's a chance they can get  moving and start a new life.  "You never know. We'd have to get some  guys that are committed. It's not right dead,  but we have to gel some definite interest. I  know the league doesn't want to have a team  thai gels polished all the time," Poulton said.  The team jerseys and name will also be  around, he pointed out.  In the meantime, former Sharks Poulton,  Billy Stockwell, Brian Paulson and Greg  Tetrault, and perhaps a few others, are jumping the Sound to play for the RCHL  Squamish Cyclones (formerly (he Howe  Sound Cyclones).  "They were along the same lines as we  were. At home they were all right bul not on  the road," Poulton said.  Finally, the Sharks are planning to stage  another comedy night sometime Ihis fall, so  slay tuned.  bnub blo3  *���<��> ��� ii -ri ��� ��� ���>",ttr.\?ni vi']  ***��$?  Otsfa^fatnu'ti.

It provides community members and groups a great opportunity to take part in a game lhal  promotes fitness, develops new  friendships and makes for some  good winter fun.  As one curler recently said to  me, I am looking forward to getting back at it.  Men's league is still Tuesday  and Thursday evenings, and we  are studying the possibility of a  commercial league on Thursday  or Monday evenings.  This league is designed for  an office or a store, service club  or society to gel four players  together and have an evening  out. You can have any four  players, mixed male or female,  and it is a league in which  beginners will feel very comfortable.  The ladies will curl on Thursday or Monday evenings. This  will be decided by a vote of the  ladies present on registration  night. Wednesday is a mixed  league with alternating  female/male curlers and it is our  most competitive mixed league.  The Friday/Sunday league, our  most popular, is an anything  goes type of league, but we prefer Ihe learns not to be too  strong since this league is  designed as a fun league and  beginners are encouraged to  come out on this night.  Last year, we had 24 teams  participating in this league.  There are also three daytime  leagues, one for seniors, one for  ladies and one for juniors.  Registration for curling takes  place at the Gibsons Curling  Club at 7:30 pm on Tuesday,  Sept. 20 for mixed play,  Wednesday, Sept. 21 for the  ladies and Thursday September  22 registration will take place  for the mens leagues and new  senior curlers.  Come out and register individually or as a team. We are  always pleased to add new  members.  Gibsons residents win medals at senior games  Approximately 1,300 participants with 300 non-participants  and ISO VIPs converged in  Prince Rupert from Aug. 31  through Sept. 3 for the sixth  annual BC Seniors' Game.  There were 12 zones throughout British Columbia competing  in 20 venues, some of which  were table tennis, tennis, badminton, track and field, golf,  slow pitch, carpet bowling, floor  curling, bridge, cribbage, chess,  one act plays, horseshoes, swimming.

I couldn't sit back and keep  lhat tidbit of information lo  myself any longer. Smug, I  laughed derisively last winter as  I, playing Ihe pool on the side  lines as a staff member disallowed the right to participate in  the pool, raced WAY ahead of  the leaders���my insightful picks  earning me vast amounts of  points but nary a single sandwich nor smidgin of sushi at the  Omega.  Alas, it seems as though we  shan't be running a pool this  winter and I want to publicly  exclaim that this inhales deeply  on the el grande Turkish Onion.  Hockey pools are what makes  the winter go 'round if you're a  fan of the sport and even if  you're not, pools will provide  you with minules of fun each  week as you tally up your points  and realize with a sag of the  shoulders akin to a tectonic plate  slipping, that you're dead last  and NOW you know lhal Tie  Domi is a goon and not a scorer  and you shouldn't have picked  him first over-all.  While I've found Ihe Coasl to  be an anomaly in Canada, in thai  Hockey Pools don't seem to be  quite as abundant as elsewhere, I  do know there is the odd collection of throwbacks, such as old  rink rats from the prairies still  taking part in pools.  Okay, Grant and other daring  poolsters ��� listen up ��� Captain  Cobb, the worst loser in Hockey  Pool History has some can't  miss information on the upcoming hockey season for you to  help you make the most  informed picks.  Impress your peers with your  Cliff Fletcher-like cunning and  select a pool that will bring you  financial rewards and more  importantly, bragging rights.  While picking a pool round  by round, you must always be  aware of who is injured, who  has been injured, who could get  injured and who is, in fact, stone  cold dead.  For instance, Mario Lemieux  -irnordeid, but he is taking a  year off from hockey for health  reasons and picking Mario  would be a severe boner.  In round one your best bets  will be Sergei Federov and  Wayne Gretzky.  If both players remain  healthy they will battle it oul for  Ihe scoring title.  Don'l be a putz and take Pat  LaFonlaine because he'll probably be shelved wilh yet another  injury as Ihe Sabres' scoring slar  is prone to snap like weak glass  in deep freezer full of rocks.  Some other good picks in  round one COULD be Adam  Oales, Pavel Bure, Teemu  Selanne, Alex Zhamnov, Alex  Mogilny, Eric Lindros, Jeremy  Roenick, Doug Gilmour, Mats  Sundin, Brendan Shanahan and  Pierre Turgeon.  Caution: Beware of Lindros.  He's so big he gets hurt a lol. It  sounds weird bul Ihe silly sod  beats the hell out of himself as  he bests the hell out of his opponents and lends to spend time on  Underwater hockey  Attention all amphibious  Sunshine Coast residents. A  new season of underwater hockey is about to begin.  This fun sport is for those of  us who love water sports and  who swim best wearing fins,  mask and snorkel.  Underwater hockey is a coed and non-contact sporl. We  are looking for some new players this year and we have some  equipment for you to borrow to  try oul the game.  There have been some  changes to the schedule and the  juniors (8-11 years) will play on  Saturday afternoons from 1 - 2  pm starting Ocl. I for 10 weeks.  The adults will play Sunday  evenings from 5 - 6 pm starling  Oct. 2 for 10 weeks.  The cost for this session is  $32 and you must pre-register at  the Gibsons Pool as we have a  limited number of players we  can accept.  If you need more information regarding the game you can  call 886-7372.  the sidelines.  In other rounds, watch for the  continued emergence or reappearance of these players;  Robert Reichel, Keith Tkachuk,  Mike Modano, Dave Andrey-  chuk, Joe Sakic, Owen Nolen,  Trevor Linden, Pelr Nedved,  Brian Lectch, Rob Blake, Al  Mclnnis and Luc Robilaillc.  I'm belting all of these players will have career years for a  variety of reasons loo long lo  mention in Ihe brief space we  have in Ihis column.  Beware of Phil llousley, Alex  Yashin, Mark Messier, Craig  Janney, Dale Hawerchuk, Ulf  puck's bruise  Ian cobb  Dahlen, Ray Sheppard, Steve  Yzerman and Michal Pivonka.  While these guys are all good,  they loom as busts.  Housley is a whining suck  and will likely miss a large piece  ofIhe season because he doesn't  want to play in Calgary for tax  reasons.  Yashin and Messier are pouting, Janney is a twerp, Hawerchuk is a year older and wilh.  LaFonlaine back, he'll see less  ice lime, Dahlen is on his way  down, Sheppard will be lucky lo  post ihe numbers he has in Ihe  pasl couple of years and Pivonka  is a floater with a very large cap  ital F ��� excuse the sideways  pun. And Stevie Y, well, it's jusl  a feeling.  Some other players worthy of  a chance are Mikael Renberg,  Keith Primeau, Dallas Drake,  Kirk Muller, Geoff Sanderson,  Bryan Smolinksi, Doug Weight,  Cliff Ronning, Igor Larionov,  Bernie Nicholls, Gary Suter,  Tony Amonte and Nords' rookie  Peler Forsberg���all projected to  have better or break-through  seasons.  Of course, none of this may  be necessary because the poor  dears in the National Hockey  League (players AND owners)  are squabbling like spoiled children and the NHL season may  go Ihe way of Ihe baseball season.  For more information check  your neighborhood magazine  racks for the wealth of hockey  pool information contained on  them.  Good luck, one and all. May  Ihe season happen.  ty  LAWRENCE SOLOWAY D.D.S.  is pleased to announce his  association with  DR. DAN M.

Lisa 686-2203. ��39c  by Jane Seyd  People who live near  Sechelt's downtown say they're  not happy with a deal council  plans to make with developers  which will allow a proposed  waterfront project extra height  in return for landscaping of public property and a donation to  the library.  On Wednesday night, the  Sechelt Residents Association  included a statement questioning  the ethics of the deal at a meeting with members of council.  "It just seems a bit slippery to  me," said Chris Beach,  spokesperson for the residents,  in a later interview. Beach said  the people he's spoken to are all  upset by the prospect.  "The people I phoned, they  were all appalled by it," he said.  "They thought it was shabby.  And it is."  Beach said residents don't  like the deal between council  and Ihe developers of Beach  House, at the former Illusions  restaurant property, for a couple  of reasons. Primarily, they fear  allowing developers to landscape the municipal properly  will mean loss of public land in  a practical sense, because people  will feel like it's part of the residential development.  "It'll be primarily for use of  people in the building," said  Beach. "Whal kind of gift is that  to the residents of Sechelt?"  "Down Ihe road...it's going  to become easier to claim ownership of the park in front of  their building when in fact it's  on public land."  Residents also don't like the  idea lhat another building higher  than is normally allowed is  being told lo go ahead just  months after a height variance  was granted on the adjacent  Tong development.  Both Beach and Pat Chamberlin, another member of the  residents group, said Mayor Earl  Basse told them at that time the  height variance granted to Tong  wouldn't become a precedent  for other developments.  'It just seems a bit  slippery to tne'  ���Chris Beach  "With the Tong development  there was a tremendous concern  with the height variance and  they just brushed lhat off," said  Chamberlin.  "Here again they're doing it  immediately which is just  incredible...They haven't even  given a space to pretend everyone's forgotten."  Chamberlin said the issue  was the subject of "reasonably  heated" discussion between residents and members of council at  the close of Wednesday night's  meeting.  Similar concerns were recently raised at a council meeting by  former councillor Joyce Kolibas,  who lold the mayor, "If I was  paying $100,000, I would want  something in return for it."  Mayor Earl Basse said at that  meeling there would be no loss  of control because of the agreement with developers.  That thought was re-iterated  by Councillor Duncan Fraser,  chair of Sechelt's planning committee, in a later interview.  "The esplanade is owned by  the District of Sechelt and will  continue lo be owned by the  District of Sechell," he said this  week. "It is my intent and coun-  cil's intent to make sure the  esplanade remains public land."  Fraser said the height variance is needed by developers in  order to incorporate architectural elements like pitched roofs  into the design.  "II seems apparent to me that  the residents of Sechelt far prefer some architecture with some  variation."  He added any promises that  the Tong height variation  wouldn't be repeated are "news  to me."  Earlier in the week, Mark  Hadley, one of the developers of  Beach House, said there's nothing wrong with what's being  offered to the district in return  for concessions about the height  ofthe building.  "We're all trying to work  together now," he commented.  Along with landscaping of a  small park area, Hadley said  developers are offering to build  a second tier of a seawalk closer  to Ihe water, which would connect up to the Tong development. The seawalk would also  be wheelchair accessible, he  said.  Tourism up, business average  by Ian Cobb  Thanks to nearly two months  of stellar weather, business on  the Sunshine Coast during the  summer was above average,  report business and service people.  "As far as I have seen Ihe  business has increased quite a  bit," said Cibsons and Dislricl  Chamber of Commerce president  Conchita Harding.  "I was quite impressed with  Ihe way things have gone this  summer."  Hugh Gadsby, owner of Lord  Jim's Resort Hotel, had a bittersweet summer season to contend  with.

Bruce Morris, financial controller for Trail Bay Mall in  Sechelt is cautiously optimistic  at how the summer treated the  Coast.  "I would say that compared to  lasl year il was an average summer. Some (store owners) were  pleased with their sales while  others found buying patterns  have changed. It's becoming a  challenge for merchants," he  said.  All the business leaders interviewed by the Coast News  agreed that while sales over ihe  summer were al best average,  Ihey believe more people are  coming to the Coast.  "I think since spring we've  had a good percentage increase  in tourism," Harding said, adding  Ihe Gibsons chamber has also  fielded a lol of questions from  younger families seeking information about the viability of  moving to the Coast. "Il's quite  surprising. They at leasl can raise  a family in a good atmosphere,"  Harding said. "There's also been  lots of questions aboul businesses moving here."  Another increase the Gibsons  chamber has noticed, according  to Harding, is in the number of  American tourists.  Meanwhile, BC Ferries Corporation (BCFC) also reports an  increase in traffic on Ihe Queen  of Cowichan, the ferry serving  Howe Sound between Horseshoe  Bay and Langdale. "Il's up but  nol by greal amounts," said  Langdale terminal manager John  Yales.  "In August, Mondays were  real clinkers with heavy traffic  most of the day���sometimes  right up to the 4:30 (pm) feny.  That was a shock to everybody  travelling."  The Queen of Capilano, the  smaller ferry lhat serves Bowen  Island, was brought to the Coast  four limes, Yates said, to "pick  up the the remains at the end of  the day" and lhat number is in  line wilh lasl year, he said.  Official BCFC statistics are  slill being produced by the  Crown Corporation's revenue  department, reported communications manager Ed Mckenzie,  and won't be available for another few weeks.  et. ,      ..... ,  ,  g^.-r ephemera  SPCA news  Sid, a four-to five-year-old  neutered male, with shots,  needs a home after being  found in a rough state.

Kirk Davis, Ihe BC director  with the organization, said Ihe  Nature Conservancy was unable  to raise the $4 million through  corporate and private donations  before their purchase option  expired last week.  He said the group will not be  acquiring another option. "I  guess for the moment we're in  the observer camp and other  people are carrying the torch,"  he said.  Another group based off Lasqueti Island, calling themselves  Friends of Jedediah Island, are  urging the BC and federal gov-  erments the buy the property.  Both levels of government  have made commitments to purchase land for park sites, Doug  Hopwood, a member of the  group, said.  Hopwood said the group has  directed phone campaigns to  government officials to press  the urgency of the project. They  also keep open talks wilh the  Palmers to keep the island  development-free.
