 Leejie'ltrfcive library  Parliament. S'ulldlngs  Victoria,   B.C  V8V  1X5  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED     1945  January 31,1994 Volume 48 Issue 5  End watershed logging, says LRUP report  by Ian Cobb  The author said his report was going to  make some heads spin.  And based on the recommendations  made by the Tetrahedron Local Resource  Use Plan (LRUP) Water sub-committee,  heads may indeed begin a series of dizzying rotations.  Quite simply, the lengthy report, four  years in the making, recommends the end  of logging in the Tetrahedron area east of  Gibsons and Sechelt.  In addition, the report, tabled at a Jan.  25 LRUP meeting at the Sunshine Coast  Forest District office, recommends "logging operations cease in the Chapman and  Gray Creek Watersheds" which flow down  from the Tetrahedron.  Sub-committee chairman Chuck Weath-  erill makes no bones about it; the entire  watershed has to be protected.  "You have to have a _____  cheap and potable water  supply and Chapman  Creek is the best supply  we've got. I'm not just  talking about this (Tetrahedron); I'm talking  about the whole nine  yards." ���������  Weatherill said the Tetrahedron "isn't  the only forest in British Columbia" and  that the area's prime importance isn't the  stands of highly valuable yellow cedar or  its beauty. Its prime importance is the  watershed that feeds water to the majority  Watershed restoration  must be now  recognized as the  primary goal'  -Chuck Weatherill  of the population of the Sunshine Coast.  "Exploitation of timber resources has  compromised water quality, quantity and  ___^_      timing of flows.  "Watershed restoration must be now recognized as the primary  goal," the first recommendation in the Water  sub-committee report  ^tites. The water report  ������������ includes a special report,  written by scientist Dr. Erwin Diener, outlining potential hazards to the public water  supply from timber harvesting.  "Logging in the Tetrahedron-Chapman-  Gray Creek Watershed may impair the  year-round sustained communal water sup-  Sunshine Coast carpenters are asking the Sunshine Coast school board to hire construction workers locally rather than import people  from Vancouver. Joel Johnstone pholo  Locals ask for first crack at school construction  by Darah Hansen  Hire locally.  That was the message delivered by the B.C. provincial  council of carpenters to Sunshine Coast school board  trustees Tuesday night.  Gil Arnold, an organizer with  the carpenters' union, appealed  to the board, saying the economic advantages of localizing construction were "identical to Ihe  'Shop Locally' campaigns  undertaken by most of our communities."  He asked the board to establish a policy that would ensure  "local preference in tendering"  in school district projects, tendered at several million dollars.  Arnold further suggested  Coast carpenters tout economic  benefits of hiring at home  instructing bidders to include  the number of local worker  hours, the quantity of local  materials, services, and sub-contractors they intend to use when  submitting a proposal.  The board can indicate in its  instructions that it intends to  provide employment to  "bonafide local residents and  businesses, and that the figures  provided by the bidder, along  wilh the proposed schedules and  company track records, will be  used by the board lo make its  decision," he said.  Outside the meeting, Arnold  said he was not calling for a  school board policy to hire only  union workers.  "If you hire local, qualified  carpenters, you will be hiring  union."  School board treasurer Tim  Anderson said it was unlikely  the cash-strapped education  ministry would approve a "hire-  locally" policy.  Currently, Ihe district awards  school projects to the lowest  bidder. The only stipulation is  the bidding company must be a  "qualified" contractor and have  a performance bond, providing  solid financial backing, Anderson said.  The board does suggest contractors hire from the local work  pool but board members have  no control on whether the suggestion is followed through, he  said.  Of the two school projects  currently underway on Ihe coast,  al Roberts Creek and Halfmoon  Bay elementary schools, both  companies are from Vancouver.  But according to Anderson,  the contractors have employed  "a fair amount of local work-  ply and may aggravate the problems  encountered by the lower Sunshine Coast  Regional District concerning water quality," Diener says In his conclusion.  Diener also agrees with the 1974 Chapman Creek Integrated Management Study  Report in that "these basins should be  reserved for the use as watershed areas and  any access to them be limited to recreational, non-vehicular use."  "An area of 2.5 miles has been clearcut  in locations 7.5 miles above the mouth on a  southeasterly facing side of the Chapman  Valley.  "Considerable mass wastage has since  degraded the water quality in the creek to a  significant degree," he writes.  turn to page 2  Sechelt  chamber  confronts  economic  challenges  by Don Anderson  If the Sunshine Coast is to  compete with its neighbors in  attracting tourists, economic redevelopment is a must.  That was the message from  Sechelt Mayor Earl Basse, in his  address to Sechelt Chamber of  Commerce members at the annual general meeting last Thursday.  Economic development is  "sadly, sadly lacking," Basse  said, adding that "the chamber is  the number one instrument" in  ensuring thai changes are made,  to the vitality of the Coast, particularly Sechelt.  Basse said the objectives of  economic development must be  identified by the various governments on the Coast. Of particular  concern is the Sunshine Coast  Regional District's economic  development council, which he  believes is faltering and requires  restructuring. If the Sunshine  Coast wants to capture tourism  markets, the various governments must focus special attention on the state of its highways.  "The key to economic development is transportation," Basse  said, "and it's not just the ferries,  it's the highways."  Convincing the Ministry of  Highways that an upgrade of the  existing roads and the development of a second highway is  necessary will be a chore, Basse  said, but one that must be  addressed immediately.  "We are the third-fastest  growing community in Canada  and we have to make sure they  know that," he said, adding that  the second "highway must go  up." The Chamber recently  named Gordon L. Wilson to succeed Patrick Hobbs as president.  Hobbs will stay on as a director.  Like Basse, Wilson said economic development "will be the  focus" of his term as president.  Economic development is essential if local businesses are to be  successful and the Sunshine  Coast is going to become a  tourist destination, he said.  In his brief address to the  chamber membership, Wilson  outlined his plan for promoting  economic development, which  will include developing new  products, expanding the business  information centre to include  counselling and financial programs, and furthering the promotion of the Coast.  Tlie chamber recorded 1,306  business inquiries during the  winter and summer of 1993.  "I see the benefit of maintaining a healthy tourism (component) on the Coast," he said.  The chamber is continuing to  work on a feasibility study to  determine if a central organization can be established to operate the four tourist information  centres on the Coast.  ������������������������������������  M  tit  1  Wit  pj  ft  ��� ���..  -���*  Maritime history  society members  breathe new  life into      ��  old boat  HALFMOON BAY:  Enjoying the  tranquil beauty  of Sargent's Q  Pigs pounded Into  submission by  Meralomas 4 A  ,��\f p  Soccer leagues  heading  through     jj  winter  Exposing  erotic      ]$  art        ^m Coast News, lanuary 31, 1994  It's Trull!!

Sm 10-4  from page I  The alteration of drainage patterns in the  area, mostly due to logging roads and inadequate drainage, has created a "proneness" in  the area for slope failure.  During the rainy season of 1990-91, a  major landslide occured "due lo logging activities," Diener states.  "Nobody on the face of Ihe earth owes  anyone a living," Weatherill said, referring to  logging in the area during the Jan. 25 meeting.  "There is a cost for everything and it's time  society got out of Disneyland and faced that,"  he said.  Diener says in his special report that logging of old-growth forests would effectively  remove a natural filtration system.  "Tree cover and the water-absorptive  capacity of undisturbed, forest-covered soil  protect from erosion, and hence siltation of  the water supply at high rainfall intensities  during the winter months."  In addition, he says the thick forest canopy  also acts as a relardant for the penetration of  water into the soil "at a rate lhat favours optimal retention and discourages flooding and  runoff."  'Nobody on the face of the  earth owes anyone a living'  -Chuck Wmlhetill  Without the forest acting as a filtration system, Weatherill said, the SCRD would be  faced with the enormous cost of installing nitration systems and subscribers would be  faced with "$ 1,000- $ 1,500 surcharges a year"  to cover the cost of keeping them going.  Health problems will also result if "turbidity" (clarity of water) problems persist and  such problems are becoming more and more  common in the province, the report notes.  For example, it cites how boil water advisories have increased in the province from 20  in 1986 to 110 in 1992.  After reviewing the 50-plus page report,  LRUP chair and SCFD resource planning  officer Barry Miller said, "It is a very well  written and researched report."  The Chapman basin or bowl "is vital to the  retention of water. If we destroy that retention,  we'll be in trouble," he said.  The report also recommends that: Ihe Ministry of Forests' role be limited to "the restoration and reclamation projects that will be necessary;" the chief forester ensure that requirements for watershed protection are included in  the Sunshine Coast Timber Supply Analysis;  an alternative form of authority concerned  with the watershed be formed; recreational  activities in the area be limited and monitored;  and the province should re-evaluate "the  assumption, inherent in the philosophy of  integrated use, that logging in community  watersheds is in the public interest."  History of Tetrahedron debate highlighted  When the water sub-committee handed ils report into the  Tetrahedron Local Resource Use  Plan (LRUP) core committee  Jan. 25, it was seen as a major  step in the long (four-year) process, set up to determine if the'  Tetrahedron should become a  protected area under the provincial Protected Areas Strategy.

A summary  appears below  "The Tetrahedron Sludy Area  has been the subject of a land use  debate on the Sunshine Coast  since the early '60s when the first  of a number of park proposals for  the area was submitted to the  Ministry of Parks. The original  park proposal was rejected, based  on uncertainty regarding future  allocation of Chapman Creek as  the primary source of domestic  water for the Sunshine Coast."  In 1%8 another park proposal  was submitted and in 1969 an  evaluation of the Chapman Creek  Watershed was commissioned to  determine its capacity to provide  potable water to Sunshine Coast  residents ��� then numbering  about 5,000.  A water reserve was established on Chapman Creek in  1970 by the Sunshine Coast  Regional District, establishing  water provision as Chapman's  primary use.  In 1972 the SCRD "outlined  setting It straight  concerns regarding a 1971 Foresl  Service Engineering study" in  which Jackson Bros. Logging  "was compromising water quality within the Chapman drainage."  ' In 1973 a special Chapman  Creek meeling recommended the  upper creek area be set aside as a  watershed and access be limited  to non-vehicular recreational use.  The next year an Integrated  Resource Management Study of  the Chapman drainage concluded  that past logging activities were  "primarily responsible for most  water quality deterioration" and  that forest capability was low.  In I97S Chapman Creek was  designated a Section 12 Watershed Reserve for community  water supply under the Land Act.  In 1979, sediment problems  were ongoing and another park  proposal was submitted.  In 1982, a Ministry of Forests  hiking trail system was reserved  around Tannis, Mayne, Bachelor,  Edwards and Gilbert Lakes. "It  was subsequently abandoned  when logging substantially  altered the landscapes associated  with the trail system," the history  notes. In 1987 a wilderness recreation system was created, "in the  unlogged area that remained of  the 1968 park proposal, by communily volunteers with donations  from Ihe Ministry of Forests,  industry, local businesses and a  federal government grant." As a  result of that, 35 kilometres of  trails and four all-weather cabins  accomodate about 3,000 people  every year.  In 1989, the origins of the  LRUP process began with the  Tetrahedron Wilderness Proposal  submitted to the SCRD.  In 1990 "it became apparent  that the concerns of the community, regarding wilderness designation, recreation and employment impacts would not be adequately addressed by the Integrated Watershed Management  Plan," initiated the previous year,  and in October 1990 the LRUP  was initiated.  As of Jan. 25, all sub-committee reports for the LRUP have  been tabled and preparation of a  final report is proceeding.  In the Jan. 27 issue of the Coast News Weekender, environmentalist Terry Jacks was quoted as  saying the pulp mills should stop using chlorine  and chlorine-dioxide "and stop burning ii."  It was not clear in the article that Jacks comment referred lo the burning of toxic sludge left  over from the secondary treatment of pulp mill  effluents. Dioxins and furans, commonly produced  as a by-product of Ihe chlorine bleaching process,  among other chemicals, are often contained in the  sludge. Chlorine and chlorine-dioxides are not  burned directly.  The Coast News regrets any inconvenience this  may have caused.

Davit lay  SSS-72SS  _  mam Coast News, January 31, 1994  news  MP's speech defines Reform Native policy  The following is an excerpt  from the maiden speech in the  House of Commons of John Duncan, Member of Parliament for  the riding of North Island-Powell  River. Duncan, who is also the  Reform Parly's spokesperson on  Aboriginal affairs, also spoke of  matters affecting this riding,  including the Aboriginal Fishing  Strategy (AFS).  Within the riding we have a  diversity of progressive Aboriginal groups with a living culture.  The Sechelt Indian Band took the  initiative to negotiate unique legislation to replace the Indian Act  for their band alone and as a  result they have been operating  under a municipal-style model of  self-government since 1986.  The primary focus of my  speech loday is Aboriginal  affairs. As the Reform Party  spokesperson for Aboriginal  affairs, I want to discuss the current direction of federal policy in  respect to Canada's indigenous  peoples, with a BC perspective.  British Columbia is in a  unique situation with only IS  existing treaties, including 14 on  southern Vancouver Island and  one in northeast BC. We have a  predominantly non-treaty Aboriginal situation and a very significant portion of Ihe nation's  Aboriginal population.  In general there is a spirit of  good will between the Aboriginal  and non-Aboriginal populations.  We all want Aboriginal people lo  enjoy a standard of living and  quality of life and opportunity  equal to other Canadians. There  is a consensus that a self-government model is essential to create  a climate of certainty for investment and to bring together the  population at large.  The government has pledged  to wind down the Department of  Indian Affairs at a pace agreed  upon by First Nations. There is a  consensus that a wind-down is  called for, replacing the current  outmoded and outdated department with a system of accountability provided ,by self-government. Fpderally-chartered municipal Statuyitrreserves, such 'as  the Sechelt arrangement, is a  good way to go, giving the bands  autonomy lo run their affairs.  I believe it is time for some  new points of view. Some recent  federal initiatives have been divisive, not uniting and I would like  to offer a new perspective.  Native Fishing Strategy  The Aboriginal Fishing Strategy of the Department of Fisheries  and Oceans (DFO) is one area  that needs overhauling. The commercial fishing industry in BC,  until 1992, was a colour-blind  industry, wilh 30 per cenl Aboriginal participation. There is a  long-standing Aboriginal food  MP John Duncan  fishery which is unaffected.  The federal AFS policy implemented two years ago has created  a separate Aboriginal commercial fishery based on race. This is  a two-year pilot project with  agreements under the AFS  umbrella expiring March 31,  1994. Implementation of the AFS  agreements has been very divisive within the industry and  socially. Also, it  has not been con-         ducive to conservation management.  In 1993 several  BC Court of  Appeal decisions  served to reject the  necessity of a separate Aboriginal  commercial fish- _^__  ery. The promised  DFO review...this  spring must be carried out with  transparency and sensitivity to  the conflicts that Ihe agreements  have created.  We recommend avoidance of  Ihis conflict and new direction  for our important fishery by orienting AFS to the recreational  fishery and lo fisheries enhancement. No new commercial fishing agreements should be negotiated under the AFS umbrella.  Self-government  There has been a great deal of  recent discussion about the terminology "inherent right to self-  government." According to my  understanding, the term "inherent" can mean that federal and  provincial legislation would not  apply to Aboriginal people without their agreement. 1 alyo understand that it could be the basis for  claims to international sovereignty, which could signal Aboriginal  government  _____ immunity from  all federal and  provincial laws.  This is unacceptable to most  Canadians. ,  We believe  that Aboriginal  self-government         means a mix of  federal, provincial and Aboriginal laws to be worked out  through negotiations. Regardless  of the framework, it must work  within the structure of Canadian  society as a whole.  Land claims  British Columbia residents  want to resolve the issue of  unsettled land claims so that  investment climate is improved  and so that individuals, business,  government and Aboriginal  groups can go forward with certainty. The recently formed trilat-  / believe it is time  for some new  points of view  -John Duncan  eral BC Treaty Commission (fed-  eral/provincial/First Nations) is  up and running, having already  received 38 proposals from bands  in BC. The commissions will be  a positive influence on negotiations, bul there are major shortcomings. To overcome these  shortcomings, I have recommendations related to interim measures, third-party interests and  transparency.  Recent resource-related interim measures negotiated between  the province and Aboriginal  ���groups are eroding federal Aboriginal jurisdiction and the urgency of Ihe negotiating process. It is  in the federal government's interest to question the mandate of the  province's negotiation of these  interim agreements without federal participation.  ��� Third-party interests are not at  the negotiating table. Philosophical objection to having them at  the table is unfounded as they  also want to remove the current  impasse. By involving third parties at the front end, the process  could be expedited rather than  delayed. The whole question of  government mandate would be  much more clear if third parties  were represented. This means  third parties would be in attendance but would not have decision-making authority. Third parties would tend to keep the decisions on track and moving forward. This initiative is a bold  step for the current players but it  is an essential step in order to  build consensus.  In terms of transparency, the  population at large is increasingly  suspicious of the entire negotiating process. The current situation  involves third parties only in a  consultative process and not at  the negotiation table. By having  third parties present, much of this  concern would be alleviated and  the public interest would be better served. It is well known that  both levels of government are in  a fiduciary relationship with the  Aboriginal population.  Philosophically I question,  and a body of legal opinion suggests, that because of the fiduciary relationship, the federal and  provincial governments are in a  "conflict of interest" in negotiations with the First Nations  unless third parties are at the  table. Litigation is the likely  result of current third party  involvement  In conclusion...! am calling  for new directions regarding  Aboriginal affairs. British  Columbians want to end the climate of uncertainty, secrecy, and  divisiveness. This requires adoption of the measures I have outlined. Success in BC suggests  that the same recommended  approaches will work in other  provincial jurisdictions as well.  Federal housing renovation program revived  The federal government will  provide $100 million over the  next two years in the form of  loans or grants for home renovation to low-income Canadians,  including Aboriginals, to bring  iheir houses up to health and  safely standards and to assist  Ihose in rural and remote areas  to deal wilh emergency repairs.  "This is in keeping with the  government's pledge to reinstate  the Homeowner and Disabled  Residential Rehabilitation  Assistance Programs (RRAP),"  said David Dingwall, the federal  minister responsible for Canada  Mortgage and Housing Corpora  tion. "Not only will this improve  housing and living conditions of  low-income Canadians, but  thousands of badly-needed jobs  will be created, directly and  indirectly."  Dingwall also urged the  provinces to consider "partnership arrangements" to finance  the program.  "Provincial and territorial  participation would increase the  number of homeowners who  would receive subsidies and further create jobs."  Dingwall said he expects tr  have the program operating "in  a matter of a few weeks."  t&  SUNSHINE COAST HOME SUPPORT SOCIETY  CAREGIVERS  Do you need a break from constant care of a family member?

Basse's support of improved roadways and Ihe development  of Block 7 near Trail Bay Mall is no more logical than chamber president-elect Gordon L. Wilson's decision to push for  increased tourism promotion on the Coast.  It's time to make Block 7 the centre of Sechelt, Basse said,  and whether it will be via development of recreational amenities, a library, tourisi-relaled or public service buildings, it is up  to the communily to decide.  If economic development and diversification is the future of  Sechelt, the inclusion of a combined police station/municipal  hall on Block 7 may not be the route to go.  There is a certain need for a station and municipal hall in  downtown Sechelt but it is certainly nol something that will  attract the tourists.  Tourism, after all, is the number one industry in the world  and number two in B.C., marginally behind forestry.  Aside from a lack of economic development, the most significant obstacle facing Ihe Coasl, and its numerous businesses,  is its/their relative anonymity in respect to the rest of the  province.  Apparently, there is little being done to promote this area  effectively and encourage tourists lo choose the Sunshine  Coast over trips to the Okanagan Valley or Whistler. One solution may be to join forces with the proponents of Ihe promotion  of the Circle Tour from Vancouver to Lillooet.  Granted, the Coast will never be a winter destination like  many of its competitors, but with enough planning and promotion of existing and future amenities ��� like the proposed ferry  to ferry bike path ��� it may become a three-season destination  running from spring to fall.  It will be up to the residents of this waterfront community to  decide if they want to see more tourists plugging up their highways and storefronts. With economic development comes the  obvious need to change or alter priorities.  The question remains whether this community is prepared  for or has the courage to accept change.  Has anyone seen  a robin yet?  Ah, lord, the sun's out again, and the air has that little extra  nectar-like heaviness to it, the heaviness that makes everything  and everybody seem to move by just a little bit slower.  Already, the buds that have peeked out prematurely, heedless of the mild chill, seem to be poised to make a grow of it.  And there are stirrings and rustlings in the trees and forests that  were previously chilled into silence.  This is the time of year that those who toil outdoors have the  advantage. Sunshine lightens even the heaviest tasks.  For those who work indoors, however, weather like this  makes the business of business so difficult. No matter how  conscientious the employer or employee, the weather beckons  so seductively.  Even when they resist the temptation, though, the sun still  has its way with them; it leaves them heavy-lidded and sluggish. And with that comes an inability to concentrate and  remember what it is they were...  j  , , ' j-4fc  " \A!  *)���.

Perhaps you should consult with  these owners before your plan is  finalized.  Have you told BC Hydro oj  this planned (raffle trespass on  their right-of-way?  My solution, much simpler I  believe, is to start a path in  YOUR backyard, in Halfmoon  Bay, Mr. Tkachuk, then through'  YOUR neighbours' backyards  and through all the OTHER  backyards and private properties  which run parallel to Highway  101 ��� all the way up to Egmont.  Now 1 call that a pretty good  solution; at least it is from my  point of view. t  Thank you.  GORD PEATTIE  Gibsons  Tree ring argument  a circular dispute  Thanks to James R. Thomson.  His letter of Jan. 17 made some  accurate corrections lo a recent  article on the Caren Range old  growth, but it still did not bring  out the main point.  Mr. Thomson spotted the article's misprint about counting "10  rings in one centimetre." Expert  Marion Parker (not Porter) did  use a microscope to count rings,  because the old cedar's average  ring is fingernail thickness, 0.53  centimetre.  The slow-growing trees of the  Caren often pack 100 rings into  one inch of wood.  Mr. Thomson also pointed out  quite rightly that there are older  trees in southwestern US than  those on the Caren Range. As it  happens, our local Mr. Parker  worked on that Bristlecone Pine  project with Drs. Shulman ad  Ferguson, helping build a den-  drochronological record which  goes back over 8,000 yeans.  However, to tlie friends of our  remaining old growth, knowing  those southern trees are over  4,000 years old doesn't lessen the  significance of an 1,800-year-old  tree in Canada  There is a lot that our ancient  trees can give us, scientifically,  economically, emotionally. The  important point is: when we find  an 1,800-year-old stump it means  they're cutting 1,800-year-old  trees.

Why is it when  someone works hard to build  something worthwhile, there's  always someone ready to destroy  it?  Every district needs an SPCA.  Without it there is chaos. Wild  dogs form packs, chase deer and  domestic pels and fight over  females: turn vicious, even attack  children. Is this what you want?  Have you ever heard cats fighting under your windows at night?  Or had kittens born under your  front porch?  This is what the SPCA is all  about. They are the only refuge  for these homeless animals on  the Coast, and the SPCA is going  a terrific job with a terrible problem. Now others are trying to  close Ihis refuge.  You see, there is a by-law  against noist, so I presume a  dog's bark is worse than its bite.  The SPCA has done everything it can to cooperate with  complaints, spending many,  many dollars for noise control.  What have you done lo help?  Ever walked a dog at the SPCA?  Petted a cat or cleaned its cage?  Helped pay for their food? Try it.  You could find it more rewarding  than sitting at home, trying to  think up ways of destroying all  the hard wotk of others.  MARION MULLEN  Gibsons  What fun when politicians begin to preach morality  Ah yes. when politicians start talking about  morality it's time to polish up your skepticism.  When they start preaching about it, it's time to  sharpen up your funny bone because it's only a  matter of time 'til they trip themselves up and do a  pratfall, face first into their own cream pie of pseudo-righteousness.  You remember the nerd who was Vice President  of the United States? Dan Quayle. one heart beat  away from being the most powerful man on earth  and isn't that a laugh? Well, at least it might be if  you had no imagination and nerves of steel.  Perhaps Quayle's most memorable moment  before he was consigned to the left-luggage office  of political history came when he emerged briefly  from the dwindling shadow of George Bush during  the last American presidential election to speak up  in ringing tones, well perhaps tinkling tones is  more fitting for Dan the Quayle, in praise of the  American family.  Fearlessly, this paragon of virtue denounced  Murphy Brown, a television character who had  borne an offspring without noticeable presence on  the scene of the offspring's sire. Here was an issue  that this Republican toy bull dog could get his teeth  into and worry savagely.  Nailing his colours to the mast. Captain Quayle  went to war on behalf of motherhood, fatherhood  and apple pie. What a devastating effect Murphy  Brown's fatherless offspring was going to have on  the moral fibre of the American people.  Never mind that legions of single-parent fami-  musings  lies in America existed before Murphy's momentous decision to become a mother. Never mind that  most observers and commentators see the collapse  of conventional family set-ups in the United States  of America to be the result of social decay, not the .  cause of it.  Issues such as social justice and economic  democracy are too complex for Danny Boy to wrap  his straightshooter's little mind around.  It is intellectual bankruptcy and real spiritual  exhaustion which sends politicians groping in the  linen closet for a comfortable moral towel to wipe  the soap of daily challenges from their sensitive  eyes. When you run out of ideas, preach morality.  Worn out administrations are never original. All  that they have left vibrant within the burnt-oul  husk of their political philosophy is the will to  power.  lt should be no surprise, therefore, to see another aging administration pick up Danny's unsuccessful clarion call; nail, in the absence of any  coherent ideas, the same tattered morality colours  John burnside  to the masthead where their policy should hang.  Early last fall Prime Minister John Major had  limped through a disastrous year. Surrounded by  cabinet ministers still fiercely loyal to the deposed  Thatcher, trapped in a suit of sober decency which  did little to replace the Iron Lady in the affections  of the English Tory, prone to misstep and mispro-  nouncements, Major faced a Conservative convention in September which most knowlegeable commentators confidently predicted would be an absolute blood bath.  Ah, but no! Johnny Boy stole a leaf from  Danny Boy's book. Major announced a "back to  basics' campaign which was going to put England  back on her feet  Yes, good old family values were going to do  the trick. Down with welfare cheats and single  mothers and all Ihose other dastards who were  causing social chaos.  Encouraged by their leader's clutching for some  kind of respectability, the dinosaurs paraded. Chief  among them was Home Secretary Michael  Howard, a balding, bespectacled, deranged intensity of a man one could imagine conducting medical  experiments in a Nazi concentration camp. He is  one of the aspiring leaders of the Tory Blue.  Man, was he fearless in his condemnation of  single mothers. They were, he asserted, breeders of  criminals. He was for law and order. He would  build more prisons ��� there is already a higher percentage of people in prison in England than in any  other country in Europe without noticeable lowering of criminality ��� and he was going to push for  changes so that teenage girls wouldn't get pregnant  just for the heaven-sent privilege of getting a government housing project flat He meant business,  by God.  I hope your skepticism is polished because by  this time you should be getting ready for the pratfall.  A junior married minister in the environment  department has just been forced to resign by his  true-blue constituency because it has been revealed  that at about the same time his colleagues were  exploding with moralistic fervour at convention,  this minister's mistress, an unmarried lady, was  giving birth to his child. It was the second child  fathered out of wedlock by this representative of  Tory moral zeal.  Now, poor old Major is making the rounds of  TV talk shows explaining what he did and did not  mean by 'back to basics.'  May there ever be a ready trip-wire for such  political hypocrisy and expediency.

How different, and  how significant we might ask.  Our attitudes across the longest  undefended border have actually  been from the start at least  ambiguous.  We have been at war, which  we won with a little help from  our friends; but we have been  unquestioningly at peace ever  since; and meanwhile our two  vast sea-to-sea expanses of the  planet have developed side by  side in apparently full friendly  accord, yet in many ways quite  differently, and this is not at all  the way things have gone elsewhere in our world.  But how much of the different  ways we have grown is really  appreciated on either side the  border can still be a question, and  Ihe president's annual Sate of the  Union address, and the debates  about it that follow almost indecently fast upon it on television,  can be perhaps the best single  event through which to get a  slant on what they are up to, or at  least what their government  would like to be up to.  So, as expected of course, it  was an all-inclusive health plan,  improved welfare, maintenance  of the world's most powerful  in a nutshell  armed forces, and a tougher  stance to crime in the streets, and  not necessarily in that order. In  fact a clear attempt was made not  to have these elements in any  order at all. They were all needed  in 1994 and they were critically  needed now.  Outside of the armed forces  (we aim I think at the 'most efficient') these are all problems that  we also certainly have on our  plate, though many Americans  seems to believe that, like the  British before us, we have had  national health licked since the  early '60s. What we know, and  what the British certainly know,  is that it takes more than an Act  of Parliament; it takes paying for.  President Clinton, who had  been strongly affirming that in  his term only the top 1.2 percent  of Americans had been asked to  pay higher taxes, did mention in  relation to paying for the health  plan that people who smoked  cigarettes should be prepared to  'pay for it,',  stuart nutter  but we, with far the highest  tobacco taxes in the world, are  nonetheless seeing hospitals  close.  Was anything really surprising then? It was, I thought, a  remarkably good speech, strong  and confident and clear and persuasive; but it did occur to me  that I, for one, was simply going  to have to take his figures, telling  and significant as they were , as  for real. This the more so perhaps as he many times interjected "And this is the truth".  Immediately following the  speech, though, on came the  leader of the opposition, Senator  Dole, with an obviously pre-  filmed rebuttal (well, we had just  seen him a minute before sitting  in his place in the Capitol, and  deciding when he and his mates  might join in the applause). Dole  had a big elaborate flow chart  behind him and spent most of his  considerable allowed time flatly  denying most of the president's  figures and I thought this a bit  odd. I mean, didn't these people  really know what the facts were?  Then, of course, as the night  wore on and there were interviews with senior senators, bona  fide analysts, think tank cushies,  ex-advisors to ex-presidents etc.,  these same figures were again  challenged over and over again,  and not necessarily from Senator  Dole's point of view. Nobody as  far as 1 recall actually called anybody else a liar; it just seemed  taken for granted that 'fact' today  is not necessarily as defined in  the dictionary.  ,', The image that emerged was  of a country which puts its faith,  more than perhaps any other, in  statistics, but where no one  believes in anybody else's figures. Well, we have our own  'creative' accountants.  Generally the mood at the end  seemed quite genuinely upbeat  despite the truly distressing  dimensions of the domestic problems he has to try to do something about. Correspondents who  seem to find it embarrassing to  say anything good about an  incumbent government were saying that he was much stronger  than he had been at the start  (meaning then they had thought  he had been at the start). Unfortunately he is certainly going to  have to be, and on the basis of  his program I think we can only  follow his progress from the  view up here and cheer him on.  letters  Rockwood thanks  We would like to take this  opportunity to lhank all those  members of the community who  supported Rockwood Society's  position to maintain an artistic,  cultural and educational facility  in Sechelt.

DAVE ALLEN, President  Suncoast Rockwood Lodge  Society  Aiding volunteers  As the government continues  to search for budgets to cut, there  is no doubt that the foreign aid  allocation is a tempting target. In  the lighl of the upcoming foreign  policy review members of the  international voluntary sector,  also called the NGO community,  welcome a review of Canada's  aid programs and priorities.  After 25 years of top-down  planning by governments and  United Nations Organizations, it  is painfully clear that most of the  funds official paid out for development stay near the top. In spite  of this, there have been some  striking accomplishments in  human developmeni including  longer life, improved health and  more access lo education.  Indeed, it would be a tragedy  al this important socio-economic  and political juncture, if foreign  aid were seriously curtailed.  Going Away  on Vacation?  Your Secret's  Safe With Us.

Voluntary organizations  staffed by their own nationals  have now achieved a significant  place in most developing countries, thanks to the support of  Canadians.  Canadian voluntary organizations with the support of thousands of Canadians have established links with grass roots  organizations and village people  in developing countries throughout the world. This has been  done with a great deal of help  from the Canadian International  Development Agency (CIDA).  .

Owned and maintained at  considerable cost by Chevron  Canada, we are extremely fortunate to have it at our disposal.  It provides a meeting place  for local people as well as visitors, is the hub of the Brookman  Fishing Derby held every  August, the home of the polar  ..bear swim and is a safe haven in  a storm to tugboats and pleasure  craft alike.  Generations of kids have  swum off the dock and many a  summer romance has blossomed  along those railings.  A few years ago you could  always net a crab for dinner by  simply anchoring your trap to a  piling.  Scuba divers like to use it as  a guide in their search for  sunken treasure such as Ashing  rods, buzz bombs and crab  traps.  I even hooked a deck chair  one day.  The dock attracts tourists  from all over the Sunshine  Coast and indeed, there are  scores of people who vacation  in Davis Bay every year so they  can fish off the dock and not  have lo go out in a boat.  On a warm summer night  you are apt to meet people on  the dock from all over Canada  and the US and always they  remark on how lucky we are to  have such a friendly place to  meet people.  A lot of activity revolves  around this favourite place and  we owe Chevron a great deal of  thanks for making this available  to us.  1 am looking for some history  on the beginnings of the dock,  so if you can help please give  me a call.

IWda Ml  88W87*  community  Dancing up a storm to the  music of the Great Danes,  the second annual Pender  Harbour Lions Hardtimes  Dance at the Lions Hall in  Madeira Park drew out the  locals January 22 to raise  funds for all the local charities the Lions contribute to.  Roxanne Gregory pholo  pender highlights  by Frank Roosen, 883-2920  Boy, oh boy, did you people  miss out on something good - 23  people from all over BC and  from some discovered parts of  Alberta came together for the  best-priced fun evening of the  year.  Pender Harbour Lions Club  hosted this event as a money-  raiser so they can support all  these community projects that  need donations during the coming year.  Twenty-three people, half of  whom came from outside Pender Harbour, filled a hall with  fun, laughter, dancing and entertainment to raise a total of $62.  That will surely go a long way  egmont news  to support all these community  projects and bursaries etc. that  are constantly in need of funds.  Maybe the money should be  divided up and everybody given  one dollar each.  Where were the other 40 people there was room for on the  dance floor? A chair waiting for  you beside a table filled with  grub while you could listen to  live music? And then finish the  evening with a great midnight  buffet? And all that for $7.50 to  raise money for community projects. Does Pender Harbour really care? Where were you?  Comments can be dropped  off at the Oak Tree Market in a  sealed envelope marked Hard  Times. And don't use that  phrase as an excuse because we  are all into that one. Perhaps  next time the Lions can reach  their goal of $500 to bring back  into the community or realize  that Pender Harbour is not interested. It's up to all of you.  Here is a condensed list of  what was needed and spent last  year: Locally: bursaries $500; T.  Telethon, $400; Elves Club  $200; Sen. Cit. Housing $1,000;  Serendipity $50; Elementary  School trip, $180; Girl Guides  $50; Make-a-wish $190, etc.  etc. They sponsored the Scouts,  Cubs and Beavers.  The keep up, repair, replace,  add lo and rebuild the Lions  Community Park ��� your park  ��� to an annual worth of at least  $5,000. Last year was over  $15,000.  On the international scene  which benefits somehow all of  us, the following donations were  made: CNIB $250; CARE $200;  LC1F $200; Youth Exchange  $100; Sight $100 and Hearing  $400.  I'm sure each and every one  of you can put a circle around  one of the above figures and  say: "Yes, 1 or my family, benefitted from that." So, let them  know what you think in your  letter and I'm sure they won't  mind if they find the odd one  with a donation.  by Maureen Parrott, 883-2434  The land mass of Egmont probably rose a  bit this week (as did our coefficient of beauty) as old vehicles were pulled from woods  and driveways, crushed by a front-end loader, and trucked away on flaldecks. About 50  carcasses went out in four lo:pls. Thanks to  Verne Bullock, Kerry Vaughan, Richmond  Recycling and all who helped to recycle this  old material inlo new resources.  Tremors  More substantial earth movements affected John Griffith at his winter computer job  near LA. The earthquake knocked over his  guitar stand and broke some dishes, but did  him no real harm. The week before, John  mentioned a series of minor quakes, only  one of which he felt. The vibration and low  rumble were "exactly like riding the carriage  down the (marine) ways." Lynn Mees'  mother in Palm Springs felt the big quake  distantly. For a moment it was like being out  on the boat.  News blues  E2, phone home!

BCAA Senior Public Affairs Officer Palti Bacchus says BCAA will donate a BCAA family  membership to each secondary school holding a  dry grad celebration that is attended by at least 50  percent of the school's graduating students.  "In the last couple of years we've been hearing  about student groups holding alcohol-free graduation celebrations.  These celebrations can go on all night long and  include lots of entertainment and fun without alcohol or drugs.  BCAA hopes this trend will continue to catch  on throughout the province," says Bacchus.  To receive a BCAA membership which can be  used as a door prize at the celebration, students  must submit their dry-grad plans to BCAA by  April 15, 1994 by writing to BCAA Dry Grad, c/o  Public Affairs, 4567 Canada Way, Burnaby, BC  V5G4TI.  Dry grad plans must include names and phone  numbers of dry grad committee members, date  and location of event and a list of event activities.  "Wouldn't it be great if we never read another  news report about a car crash involving alcohol,  high school students, injuries and deaths?" said  Bacchus.  Last year, 101 schools responded to BCAA's  Dry Grad Challenge.  ir you have to walk your pet in the rain, there are few places prettier than Sarcents Bay Provincial  Park. ioel Johnstone photo  hallmoon happenings  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  There is still a real need for  volunteers to cover the Halfmoon Bay area in the annual  fundraising event for the Heart  Foundation. If you have some  time to spare for this good  cause, please call Fay al 885-  3575 or Marly at 885-2229.  The foundation has plans lo  have personnel in Trail Bay  Mall on Wednesday, Feb. 9 lo  test your blood pressure, jusl to  make sure that your heart is in  good condition.  The Halfmoon Bay branch of  Sl. Mary's Hospital auxiliary  will have its monthly meeting  on Monday, Feb. 14 al Welcome Beach Hall at 10 am.  Come along and get together  with this hard-working group  who help make life more pleasant for patients in our hospital.  There can't be too many members, so if you still haven't  joined, this will be a good  opportunity to find out what it's  all aboul.  At school  Things have nol improved  regarding the running dogs situation at Halfmoon Bay school.  Just last week one little fellow  slipped on dog mess in Ihe  school yard and his clothing  was in such a disgusting state  that the staff had lo go through  the lost and found box to get  him a change of clothing. It  would seem lhat tasks like this  are above and beyond Ihe duties  of school teachers, but if the  need arises ihey have to do what  Ihey can to help Ihe child.  It would help even more if  dog owners would keep their  animals at home and not leave  Ihem lo wander about and  annoy other people. But this is  something that goes on and on  and nothing gets done about it.  The Halfmoon Bay school  recently received a grant  towards the drug and alcohol  program. The money will be  spent towards hiring of speakers  who are experts on this subject  who will address the students  and hopefully get their message  across.

Gas prices  Have you noticed the price of  gas has started to slowly creep  up again, or are we not supposed to be aware of such lac-  tics. It was brought down to a  more realistic 50.9 per litre and  we were reasonably satisfied  with Ihis. Now it is 51.9, while  one can still nil up the tank for  47.9 at Squamish and 49.9 in  Vancouver. There is still no reasonable explanation for being ,  thus penalized for living on Ihe  Sunshine Coast.  Talking of the Sunshine  Coast: we are so very lucky in  our winter weather this year in  comparison to other parts of the  country.

The early years of  parenting are physically demanding and  emotionally draining. Il is natural for parents  to feel unprepared for the rapid changes of  behaviour that occur al various stages of  development and to wonder how other parents cope in similar situations.  This program is for parents who want to  share ideas and experiences with other parents, swap success stories or have a sounding  board to puzzle out a nagging problem.  Most important it is about parents meeting their children's needs without sacrificing  their own. Living With an Explorer consists  of Ave weekly group discussions led by an  experienced facilitator, starting Monday,  Feb. 7, from 7 to 9 pm at Community Services, Inlet Avenue, Sechelt.

A recent announcement by Coast Cable  Vision Ltd. details the arrival of fibre-optics  ��� a much more advanced system of signal  sending and receiving ��� to Ihe Coast.  "During January, 1994, fibre-optic cable  will be installed from antenna site located at  Davis Bay and ending at Hopkins Landing.  Specially trained crews from BC Tel will  place 26.9 kilometres of cable to service seven  distribution hubs along the route," said Coast  Cable district manager Kenneth Hughes.  Work on this phase of fibre-optic installation is expected to end in April and the second  phase, running to Halfmoon Bay, will be completed next year.  The fibre-optic cable will replace Coast  Cable's coaxial cable system.  Some of the benefits of the installation of a  fibre-optic network are an increase in channel  capacity along wilh better quality of reception  thanks to fewer amplifiers, less interference,  smaller areas experiencing signal outages and,  as well, fewer outages.  While crews install the fibre-optic system,  cable subscribers will experience temporary  interruptions of service.  'Five hundred channels is  not unrealistic'  -Kenneth Hughs  "It's unavoidable because we have to disconnect the signals to the homes," he said.  Most interruptions will be Iwo to three minutes although some may stretch to IO or IS  minutes.  In addition to quality, the fibre-optic system will increase system capacity, Hughes  said. "Five hundred channels is not unrealistic," he said. In the near future, this will allow  cable customers to receive a pay-per-view system where the same movie will begin every  six minutes, thereby making pay-per-view  more convenient for subscribers.  Also, fibre-optics will allow a file server  system to be implemented and "the electronic  highway will also come."  Thanks to the fibre-optics, subscribers'  home computers can be connected "to the  world," Hughes said.  Coast Cable also plans to install a cable to  Elphinstone Secondary School "which will  facilitate the carriage of live and taped community programing for the studio at the  school." The cost of installing the fibre-optic  system will be about $660,000 and will be  added to Coast Cable's capital expenditures.  If a capital expenditure is used for the  upgrading of services, costs may be taken up  by increased cable fees, as approved by the  Canadian Radio-Televison and Communications Convnission. Hughes noted that other  capital expenditures, not part of increasing  services, aren't used for bill increases.  Cable subscribers bills went up 14 cents a  month on /an. 1.

Registered Retirement  Savings Plans (RRSPs)  Td figure out how much you  can contribute to a 1993 RRSP,  there are different guidelines for  members and non-members of  Registered Pension and  Deferred Profit Sharing Plans.  If you're a member, your  deductible contributions are  reduced by any so-called pension adjustments. Adjustments  reflect the value you received in  the year as a result of being a  member. This amount can also  be found on an information slip  from Revenue Canada, which  AIR MILES ���  AIR MILES  STOP IN AT  SHELL  Lower Gibsons  FOR YOUR  you should have received last  >��De��nnx*i?

Not considered part of earned  income is income from: investment, such as capital gains;  interest and dividends; periodic  pension,   including   RRSP  When should you make contributions to an RRSP?    -'������-'  You can make an RR��P contribution at any time during the  year. However, for the contribution to be deductible for 1993, it  must be made before the end of  February 1994.  What are the advantages of  contributing to a spousal RRSP?  Spousal RRSPs allow married couples lo shift future  RRSP income from the higher-  earning Spouse to the lower-  '. earning spouse. This can result  . in significant overall tax savings  ��� when the spouses cash in their  ��� RRSffaitf will'reHUtt-S&hie of  ��� the clawback of the Old Age  ' Security pension.

Joel Johnstone  photo  Pigs pushed off pedestal of perfection  by Ian Cobb  Even Pigs get full sometime.  The Gibsons Pigs Rugby Club of the Vancouver Rugby Union re-discovered what il's  like to lose Jan. 22 at Connaught Park in Vancouver.  Buoyed by having to lose a game to the  Pigs by default a few weeks earlier and by  some late player additions, the Meralomas  Rugby Club trounced the Sunshine Coast side  23-7.  "This should be a good wake-up call for  us. We should probably do better now we've  lost one," said Pigs spokesman Ray Dow following the defeat.  The team was getting a little too comfortable on the field, expecting victory, he said.  The defeat should remind team members that  it takes eveiy game to be as successful as they  have been this season and the latter part of  last season.  Counting the Pigs 13-game winning streak  dating back to the start of this season, a  December exhibition win over the Powell  River Otagos and four wins in a row at the  end of last season, the Pigs' winning streak  was halted at 18 games.  The Meralomas opened up an 11-0 lead by  half time, thanks to two three-point penalty  kicks and an unconverted try.  They continued to chase the ungreased  Pigs into the second half and jumped inlo an  18-0 lead when a Meralomas defender intercepted a Pigs toss and scampered down field  unhindered for a try.  After getting a wake-up call with IS minutes remaining, the Pigs managed to dig down  and show why they're atop the VRU with a  13-win, one-loss record.  Displaying good support and pursuit, the  Pigs got the ball to Slu Frizzell who made  into the Meralomas end zone for a try. Kicker  Dave Strom made the kick to pull the Pigs  within 11.  However, destiny meant for the Meralomas to knock the Pigs off their pedestal and  they hung on for the 23-7 win.  "We had our chances but we just didn't  capitalize like we normally do," Dow said.  The Meralomas "fielded the best team  we've seen in years" for the contest, Dow  said. However, he added that if the Pigs  played like they can, they could still knock  the Vancouver side off.  In spite of the defeat, the Pigs are still atop  the VSU standings, one win ahead of the 12-1  Capilanos and well up on the 8-5 Kats.  And it will be a battle of first and third Saturday at 11:30 a.m. behind Langdale Elementary School when the Kats hop the Sound.  The Pigs regular home field behind  Elphinstone Secondary School is temporarily  closed while the field is being re-seeded.

Over those years we've  watched the world change around us while we've remained steady as a rock, providing a safe, reliable  institution for your advertising dollar.  The first issue of the Coast News rolled off the presses on July 11, 1945, providing in-depth coverage for the  Coast's little more than 500 residents. Today, we're still covering the Coast for its 25,000-plus residents,  faithfully marking the passage of every week in history.  Life is too variable to predict what the next 50 years will hold, but with your support the constant will be the  COAST^NEWS  Trumpeting return  of Classic tourney  The Elphinstone Secondary  School basketball programs  may be in limbo right now as  students write their provincial  exams, but action will resume  with gusto Feb. 11, when the  annual Elphinstone Classic  Tournament starts.  A total of 16 junior and  senior boys teams from the  Lower Mainland, North Shore  and Pemberton will converge on  the Sunshine Coast for a two-  day tourney to be held at  Elphinstone and at Chatalech  Secondary School in Sechelt.  Sporting a 10-win and three-  loss record heading into the  tourney, the Elphinstone  Cougars senior team stands a  good chance of playing the  greedy host by winning its own  classic.  "I'm pretty sure we'll get to  the finals," mused Cougars  coach Bill Sluis, veering into  Dallas Cowboys' coach Jimmy  Johnson���confidence���country,  but Sluis, bum shoulder and all,  steered back inlo the straight  and narrow and added, "But you  never know."  One thing is for sure and was  so declared with absolute confidence by the coach ��� the quality of basketball lo be played at  the tourney will be more than  worthy of watching.  "You'll be surprised if you  come out to see them; they're a  good bunch of players."  The first game of the tourney  features the junior Cougars, currently playing it about .500,  when they take on Howe Sound  at 9 am Friday, Feb. 11 at  Elphinstone.  The senior Cougars take to  the court next with a match-up  against Collingwood.  There is no charge lo get in  to cheer on your local teams,  which also include the  Chatalech junior and senior  Eagles and Pender Harbour Secondary School junior Sakinaws.  Eagles eat salmon but  falter against Cougars  The Chatalech Secondary School Grade 8 Eagles boys' basketball  team has found something its members don't want to keep.  "We seem to have a knack of losing leads in the last few minutes  of the game," said coach Dave Diether.  The Grade 8 Eagles, considered a training/proving ground for  junior and senior programs, have lost to their counterparts al Elphinstone Secondary School (Cougars) four times Ihis year. However, the  point margin is only about 14 points in the Cougars' favour.  The squad lost lo the Cougars by four points Jan. 26 and before  then, it lost a game by a single poinl. All those losing points have  come courtesy of late-game rallies by the Cougars.  The only other game the Eagles have played so far Ihis season was  against Pender Harbour Secondary School Sakinaws. However, the  Fighting Salmon weren't in much of a fighting mood and the Eagles  scooped them from the water and ate Ihem to the tune of 23 points.  "We've got lots of players out and we've got some tall players,"  Diether said.  "We're playing as many of the kids as often as we can so we can  get them ready for juniors and seniors.  In seniors action, the Chatalech Eagles dropped another contest to  the powerful Cougars squad last week. This time, however, the winning margin was about 50 points for the Cougars.  "They have a pretty strong team this year," Diether assessed.  Happy Birthday,  TERRY  my favourite  Aquarius bud.

Both musicians have long and storied  pasts.  If Coast residents can remember a show at  Roberts Creek Hall in 1992, featuring the  band Gypsalero, then they'll remember Dun-  away.  "He's a diversely talented musician," said  cafe co-owner Mark Safioles who, along  with partner Natasha Gellatly, is trying to  make the music night at the Roberts Creek  Road location a monthly event.  A West Coaster, Dunaway has also  played with the Vancouver Symphony  Orchestra, the Tommy Banks Orchestra and  Vancouver Ensemble of Jazz.  He has also been across the boards playing with the likes of blues legend John Lee  Hooker, Steven Fearing, the Waterpoets and  Joe Henderson.  Mah, originally from Ottawa, has recorded several recitals for CBC Radio and has  produced five cassettes.  The immensely talented guitarist has also  studied in Spain under Jose Tomas, himself a  student of the late, great Andres Segovia.  Both musicians are recipients of numerous awards.  'This promises to be an exciting concert,"  Safioles said.  The first set, scheduled to begin about  7:30 p.m., will be mostly classical pieces and  as the evening progresses, jazz numbers will  appear. A casual dinner will be served from  5 to 6:30 p.m. before the show. Tickets are  $8 and seating is limited.

Bob Sherrin  photo  Unfinished work completes string quartet  by Allan Crane  They're coming from New  York Feb. 8. Alexander Korcha-  gin's bringing his wife, Tatiana  Zhelegnikova. He's the  Shostakovich String Quartet's  cellist. (She's a pianist in her  own right.)  The quartet is here to play  two concerts and enjoy Sunshine  Coast hospitality, the musicians  will stay with local families for  three days.  Their first concert will be at  the Pender Harbour Community  Centre at 1:30 pm Wednesday,  Feb. 9. The second is at the Twilight Theatre Feb. 10,7:30 pm.  Alexander Korchagin (cello),  Andrei Shislov (violin) and  Alexander Galkovsky (viola)'  were all born in Moscow. Violinist Sergei Pishchugin was  born in Tchilla, East Siberia. As  a child he moved to Moscow  where one of his teachers was  the legendary Russian violinist  David Oistrakh.  All of the players are graduates of Moscow Conservatory.  The quartet has more than 40  LPs and CDs to its credit.  The Sunshine Coast is in for a  rare treat with the two performances here. Music of the  Romantic period is tellingly represented by Brahms' (1833-  1897) Quartet No. 2.  Many local music lovers will  know this superb masterpiece.  None are likely to know Rach-  maninov's (1873-1943) unfin-_  ished string quartets, only discovered after his death. We will  hear the second of these. The  program will be completed in a  more contemporary Vein by  Shostakovich's (1906-1975)  Quarter No. 12.  Tickets are available at bookstores in Gibsons and Sechelt  ���and from the Roberts Creek  General Store. For the Pender  Harbour conceit only, tickets are  at Miss Sunny's Hair Boutique.  The newly formed Coast  Recital Society (CRS) is presenting these concerts. Future CRS  activities include a series of  three, spring concerts following  the conclusion of Countryside  Concerts' current series. More  information will be available,  shortly.  Roberts Creek offers fair cure for winter blues  Roberts Creek residents  know how to blow the mid-winter blues away.  For the fourth consecutive  year, residents of that out-of-  the-way yet rarely overlooked  community will host the Roberts  Creek Blues Fair Feb. 6.  According to organizer  Jeanelle Moen, the fair has nothing with the musical style of  blues which some people may  be led to believe judging by the  name of Ihe annual event.  "Winter blues means the  'blues-dom' that you feel during  the winter," explained Moen.  "So, il has absolutely nothing to  do with the music."  What il does have to do with  is an elaborate       setup of craft  tables and "exquisite meals,"  Moen said, in  addition to performances by a  plethora    of  local musicians     _______  and entertainers.  This year's fair will include  the talents of 11 performers,  including Larry Wahl, the Hot  Winter blues means  the "blues-dom' that  you feel during  the winter  -Jeanelle Moen  Potatoes, Clark Steabner, Silver  Dagger, Straight from the  Kitchen, Richard Price, Jane and  ,      - Boyd, and the  Piglets of Joy.  Gordo the  Clown will be  on hand for  children.  Moen said it  is the most  extravagant list  of performers  assembled to date, which will  complement the variety of jams  and jellies, larot card readings,  crafts, woodwork and jewelry  offered at the fair.  "An exquisite arrangement"  of East African foods is  planned, she said, courtesy of  Anar Kanji.  The fair has become an annual fundraiser for the Roberts  Creek Hall Restoration Committee. Moen would like to raise  $500 to be put toward any necessary spring repairs and maintenance of the hall.  The festivities run from 10  am to 3 pm.  Admission is $1 for adults  while children are admitted free  of charge.

Alice, 8882769 09  Gibsons' Quay Works Gallery  offers peek at local erotic art  by Dun Anderson  There's nothing shocking  aboul Erotica, a 23-piece display of erotic art currently  showing at the Quay Works  Gallery in Gibsons.  At least that is the opinion of  artist Donna Balma, co-juror of  some 45 pieces of art submitted  lo the gallery in preparation for  Ihe month-long show.  "It's hopelessly heterosexual," Balma said.  "We didn't get anything from  Ihe other sexual persuasions.  "I've been in the art world  for many years now and I've  seen shocking...To my mind,  there is nothing thai is outrageously shocking (in this  show)."  Balma and fellow artist Maurice Spira selected what they  believe is the best interpretation  of erotic art by Sunshine Coast  and Lower Mainland artists.  Works submitted covered  virtually all media, including  sculptures made from wood and  Plexiglass, black and white photographs, pencil drawings and  acrylic paintings.  "Some (submissions) we  found incredibly banal and trite  and others we found that people  had imaginatively expressed the  theme of the show," Balma said,  prior to Saturday's show opening.  North Vancouver artist Leo  Peterka has submitted two wood  sculptures, while local artist  Roger Handling's slightly eclectic painting/sculpture of a naked  form managed to capture the  appreciation of the jurors and  Quay Works co-owner Lionel  Trudel.  Other works accepted into  the show include Elizabeth  Simpson's acrylic painting entitled "Evolution," a tapestry on  natural fibres courtesy of Lois  Kennedy, and a 15-second tape  recording involving some form  ^jjjj^  >  ^Uli  ____$<'''��*  ____%      Bw  'Jfnpm  !���  A  tai.-''  i '���' ;4ts?  0   ^f  ^__ A- *"^B  #~\m  t  "    '"'          *^m\  f; <*��� C'   *  et.

"The experience is within the  experience," Trudel said.  Despite initial fears that the  show would spawn criticism and  possible outrage from the community, Erotica has generally  received favorable response, he  said.  "It's all been pretty light-  hearted. There's been a lol of  talk in the community and it's  all been positive.  "We expected it to be popular... I was expecting to get 30  (submissions) and to see 45  come in is indicative of the popularity of this subject on the  Coast."  The show runs until March 1.  Rockwood set for one-woman show  Local writer/performer Caitlin Hicks will debul  her latest play, Singing The Bones, at Rockwood  Centre in March  Hicks performed last fall at Rockwood's Story-  Telling Festival and saw the creative potential for  theatre at Rockwood.  "Hicks approached us about a production and  we thought it was a great idea," says Rockwood  director Sandy McBride.  Hicks' performance offers a fine combination  of original music and presentation with creative  use of the Rockwood facilities. The north wing  will be turned into a 120-seat theatre for the performance. Directed by Gordon Halloran, Singing  The Bones will be staged with unique approaches  to light, sound and set.  "It's a non-traditional setting for theatre and  that's what 1 like about it," said Halloran, "The  north wing is not your typical theatre space, but  with Rockwood's technical assistance we are  going lo try some unexpected things with staging  and set."  Singing The Bones is a modern version of the  story of La Loba, the woman in the desert who  breathes life into the bones of wolves. Caitlin  Hicks' play explores the mystery between life and  death by following a midwife's mystical journey.  The audience is guided on a passage through the  heart of darkness towards the healing light of birth.  Performances will take place on Friday, March  18 and Saturday, March 19 at 8 pm. Tickets must  be purchased in advance and will go on sale Feb.  14. For information conlact Rockwood Centre at  885-2522.
