Joel Johnstone photo  by Don Anderson  There is no chance the District of Sechelt will reconsider  purchasing the controversial 2.8  acres of waterfront property  owned by Japan-based developer Jeffrey Tong.  That is the notice Mayor Earl  Basse has issued to answer the  negative publicity the municipality has garnered from a letter-  writing campaign by Sechelt  residents.  In a letter forwarded to the  Coasl News last Monday (April  25), Basse states:  "The District has received  many letters, petitions and notes  from a variety of organizations  and individuals bolh within and  outside of the District urging  council to preserve the 1.1  hectare 'Tong' property as a  park.  "There have also been a number of letters written to the  media, in some cases vilifying  the personal integrity of council  and intimating self-interest was  biasing our decision not to proceed with that re-zoning."  Basse further states that the  municipality "simply cannot  afford" to purchase the properly,  with an estimated value of $2  million, lo preserve the land as a  park.  "This is too large a debt load  for the taxpayers of Sechelt to  carry," he writes.  The fight to preserve the land  has gone on for more than two  years, and according to Trail  Bay Protection Society president  Pat Chamberlin, the fight is far  from over.  "Believe me, if these build  ings go up, there will be public  outcry," Chamberlin said in  response to the Mayor's letter.  The longtime resident has  spent the last three months trying to persuade the municipality  to reconsider the Tong development, to no avail.  Chamberlin and Ihe society  have offered solutions to the  property acquisition-cost hurdle,  including the possibility of a  land swap between the municipality and the developer.  "We've certainly tried everything we can to solve that problem but they seem to like to get  stuck on that particular issue,"  she said.  "As far as this particular  piece of properly goes they  could easily do a transfer."  Chamberlin has suggested  swapping one of two five-acre  pieces of property located near  the golf course for the Tong  property.  "Golf courses are great locations for condos. I would think a  land swap with one of those  parcels would be something thai  could appeal to a developer,"  she said.  Council has indicated it  would not consider a land swap,  preferring to work with the  developer to ensure that what is  constructed best suits the local  environment.  The developer intends to  retain 30-63 per cent of the  existing trees on the property.  The maximum allowable site  coverage for the property is 75  per cent and the developer has  chosen to develop only 22 per  cent.  Resident faces down regional district over boat shed  by Darah Hansen  A Hopkins Landing man and  his dog withstood the forces of  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) Friday (April  29) to prevent the demolition of  an illegal structure on his properly-  "We stood them down ��� me  and Indian (his dog)," said a  jubilant George Skea after turning back the bulldozers, contracted by the SCRD to tear  down a large boat shed on the  property.  Following Friday's failed  demolition attempt, SCRD  bylaw enforcement officer Paul  Watson had no comment on  whether the district would mount  a second campaign to tear down  the shed.  The regional district gave the  final order for the shed's demolition after Skea failed to obtain a  permit for it. And though Skea  has repeatedly charged that he  has the support of the majority  (85 per cent) of his neighbours  as well as verbal permission  from a former district planner,  Ray Coates, to build the boat  house, regional directors agreed  last Thursday (April 28) to go  ahead with its demolition.  The majority of directors  agreed Skea had been given  ample time and sufficient warning to fully comply with regional  district bylaws.  Director for the West Howe  Sound area Tony Laver said he  "felt badly" aboul Skea's plight.  "I don'l want to be fighting with  my neighbours."  However, he added that "we  must, at limes, set aside sentiment    and    enforce    the  laws...There's no point in making bylaws for people to go  around breaking them."  The shed ��� built to house the  construction of a 102-foot wooden vessel which Skea is building  by hand ��� is too large under  area bylaws which govern his  residentially-zoned property.  Skea has been told several  times by the regional district to  remove the temporary structure  or face its demolition. He was  issued a 30-day warning earlier  this year by the SCRD to remove  the shed from the property him  self.  But Skea is adamant that the  shed must stay until the boat is  completed.  "The only place I can build  my boat is in a large, enclosed  building where I can control the  humidity and temperature ...  There's $100,000 worth of  equipment in there, so I want to  build my boat close to the house,  not in some farmer's field or  industrial park."  Skea estimates the boat's  construction will take another 18  months.  School budget passed ��� with cuts  Few details have been  released but the good news is the  school board has balanced, and  approved, its 1994/95 budgel.  The bad news is that lay offs,  office shuffles and professional  inconvenience are still pending,  awaiting ihe final decision of district administration.  Secretary-treasurer Tim  Anderson outlined nexl year's  education budget at last Tuesday's (April 26) meeting of the  school board. Trustees unanimously approved the budget in  the amount of $26.4 million and  commended administrators for a  "very creative job" in balancing  the deficit-heavy budget.  A $550,000 deficit was  reduced to zero wilh cuts to bolh  school-based and district administrative services.  One of the most significant  cuts came in the form of building  closures. Gone next year are both  the continuing education and  career education offices in  Sechelt, as well as the district  resource centre in Gibsons.  Trustees will also lose their public boardroom next year in  favour of displaced employees  who will use il as office space.  Anderson said the board is  prepared to "take on the inconvenience" of losing ils boardroom  to save jobs and education ser  vices in Ihe district.  Cutting the buildings from the  budget was the largest single cut,  resulting in a saving of approximately $250,000.  Meanwhile, other reductions  include the elimination of district  coordination positions with the  exception of a half-lime computer and technical coordinator; a  $10,500 decrease in district discretionary expenditures; and a  leveling off of funds allocated to  district operation and maintenance.  Superintendent Bob Johnstone said full details of the bud-  gel will be made public this  week.  Area F director resigns from SCRD  Citing "personal" reasons for  his decision, Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) director Tony Laver announced last  week that he will retire from his  brief career in politics.  "I feel I haven't put as much  time as I should into this  (job)..To do (it) properly, one  should give a lot of one's time,"  Laver told directors al last  Thursday's (April 28) regional  board meeting.  "I feel I should give it (the  job) to someone else who's  more forceful and will do a better job to look after the board's  needs."  Members of the regional  board thanked Laver for his contributions to the district and  echoed sentiments of regret on  seeing him leave.  "I really do understand the  difficulty," said Elphinstone  director Jim Gurney. "1 wish the  public appreciated Ihe work load  lhat goes wilh these positions."  Laver won the seat as director for the area of West Howe  Sound by acclamation in the  elections held lasl fall. Since  June 1993, he had been acting as  an alternate lo former director  Sue Fitchell.  Laver will remain as director  until a by-election is held. District administrator Larry Jardine  said Ihe by-election can be  called within 80 days upon the  appointment of a chief electoral  officer.

Hunww Education Sootty, ���ducatniwl trm ol Use B.C.SP C A  by Don Anderson  Members of the "outlaw"  official community plan committee are calling the first draft  of the Sechell OCP a document  without any teeth.  "My general reaction to it is  that it is too general. It could be  describing Spuzzum...there's  nothing in the language that  really reflects the unique character found in Sechell," said Beverly Tanchak, Sechelt Village  representative on the recently  reformed OCP committee.  The initial draft was introduced to council in early April  and reviewed by consultant Kai  Kreuchen at its April 20 meeting.  Although council has not  determined a specific deadline  lor final approval of the document, Mayor Earl Basse has  expressed interest in completing  it as soon as possible.  Tanchak believes the wording of the 35-page document is  "totally open to interpretation"  and lacking definition. She  believes that the document, as it  stands, offers no specific or  enforceable guidelines of how  the district should approach the  next five to 10 years of development and evolution.  "To me Ihis draft does nol  give notice lo the work of Ihe  subcommittees. It gives lip service to the subcommittees'  work, but that's it. It is not adequate," she said.        Of particular  concern lo Tanchak and other  OCP committee  members is the  exclusion of public transit from  policies intended  to address  Sechelt's trans-      portalion links.  Although one policy suggests  Ihe municipality "encourage  links between neighborhoods"  through the use of roads, paths  and trails instead of the highway, it completely overlooks  public transit.

To create a waterfront park,  the municipality would be  required to purchase property on  the north side of Osprey Street if  and when it is offered for sale.  Tanchak, West Sechelt subcommittee representative Dennis Chernoff and East Porpoise  Bay representative Adrian Hovestad would like to see this policy removed from the document.  "In no way do I feel, as an  individual or speaking as a representative of West Sechelt, that  we are trying to become a European city or a Cape Cod/East  Coast city," said Chernoff.  He added that the document  is so general that he is unsure  what it will be like to actually  "work with it."  Hovestad criticized council  for supporting a document he  believes is "very shallow."  "The old one had more in il.  They should take that one," he  said.  Sechelt Official Community Plan Committee chair Duncan Fraser, right, at last week's meeting at  the Bella Beach in Davis Bay.

Joel Johnstone pholo  Sechelt burn bylaw debate continues  by Don Anderson  Local contractor Ray Stock-  well got more than he bargained  for during his face-off with Porpoise Property residents about his  contentious commercial burn  application outside District of  Sechelt boundaries.  Residents attending last Tuesday's (April 26) environmental  committee meeting angrily  protested Stockwcll's arguments  for the burn application, which  has yet to be approved by the  Ministry of Environment.  "There has been a little misunderstanding about my application," began Stockwell, before  explaining exactly what is  planned for the site.  "I believe lhat I'm doing one  of the best things on the Coast to  address this problem (of land  clearing waste). What other alternatives do we have right now?"  Stockwell's company, Stock-  well and Sons Ltd., filed an  application in February to operate a commercial burn pit on  lands northeast of Sechelt and 1.2  km from the regional district  landfill site.  The application has since  received negative response from  District of Sechelt, representa  tives of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District, and numerous  residents living within range of  the proposed burn site.  The site is located in the  regional district boundaries,  roughly a half-mile back from the  water near East Porpoise Bay.  Stockwell said the burn would be  moved back an additional half-  mile to the 800-foot elevation,  thereby reducing noise and Ihe  possibility of smoke filtering into  the nearby valley.  "There's pretty much a guarantee that you won't have to deal  with smoke," he said.  Materials accepted at the proposed pit would include wood,  stumps, branches and roots from  construction sites. Branches and  tree stems would be mulched on-  site, and wood would be stored  for chipping before it begins lo  decay. Chipping would be limited to solid wood only.  Stumps, roots, and infected  wood is to be piled, dried and  burned, and Ihe resulting ashes  combined with sand for use as  topsoil. Stockwell said his company would conduct a maximum  of eight burns when the winds  were favourable enough for the  smoke to properly dissipate. The  implementation of a conversion  system, a demand made by many  residents, is not cost effective, he  added.  Sheila Fletcher was one of the  first residents to issue a rebuttal  to Stockwell's claim that there  has been no problem with smoke  in the area. Fletcher said she  noticed a nearby burn April 14,  the apparent result of smoldering  ashes of a previous burn coming  up to the surface and creating an  "accidental burn."  She was "alarmed" by the  amount of smoke circling her  neighborhood and complained  that it was affecting her and other  residents' health, to which Stock-  well retorted:  "There is absolutely no health  detriment to the community and I  don't know where these people  are coming from."  But according to Dr. Paul  Martiquet of the Coast-Garibaldi  Health Unit, studies have shown  that wood smoke has contributed  to a rise in the number of recorded incidents of respiratory disease, particularly bronchitis.  It may also affect people who  have emphysema or chronic lung  disease.

FT) H O,'  Jfiran'*.^  InftffhPi  ________^ Coast News, May 2, 1994  opinion  'Papas, don't let  your babies grow  up to be' violent  Parents these days have a hard row to hoe, as the saying  goes.  As governments cut back on funds to schools and child-  activity programs, parents are under greater pressure to volunteer for these activities and to take part in fundraising ventures that were previously government-funded, either completely or partially.  Then, too, there are the inevitable chauffeuring and travel-  agent activities that come with Iheir children's participation  in such activities as music lessons, sports, school field trips  and the like.  Should parents run into problems in dealing with raising  their children ��� and these days, what parent doesn't? ��� they  will become involved in a whole web of activities lhal can  range from family counselling all Ihe way lo attending court.  Still, it was disappointing thai a panel on Ihe effects of violence on the communily and children put together by Cedar  Grove school last week was so poorly attended by parents.  Only about 40 people showed up, and half this number  were teachers. When you consider lhat Cedar Grove alone  has 370 students, the lurn-out can only be described as  abysmal.  After all, this was an attempt by the school lo gel a jump  on youth violence before wc encounter serious problems  with it. Already, it is as close as a ferry ride away from us ���  and more likely, even closer to home, since there is a certain  tendency among the young to keep such information away  from adults.  A recent event ��� in which a visiting teenager injured a  local youth with a pellet gun in a drive-by shooting ��� indicates how we are being overtaken by events. Although the  shooter was from the Mainland, it seems that the incident  occurred with the knowledge of at least one other local youth.  While no specific studies have been done about youth violence on the Coast, studies done in other schools indicate that  it is certainly a problem at the junior and high school level ���  and likely to grow more serious unless we address it earlier,  as Cedar Grove school is attempting to do.  The problem is that youth violence is not, like the drive-by  incident, so blatantly obvious. In other schools, it has manifested itself in activities like school-yard extortion and blackmail, beatings of students or physical or mental abuse by  boys against girl friends or dates.  Also conspicuous by their absence from the Cedar Grove  gathering were male parents.  Most youth violence is perpetrated by males ��� probably  not surprising when you consider that an acceptance of physical violence is built into and transmitted through the male  ciilKre;���fcjTwajr of sucfi mtindalile activities as body-contact"  sports or learning to 'fight back' against physical aggression  from other males.  A boy who participates in body-contact sports, for example, won't necessarily become a violent adolescent or adult.  However, such activities do give boys an exposure to the use  of physical force as a solution to a problem that is largely  absent from the female culture.  This doesn't mean boys or males are inherently evil. However, male parents in particular should recognize that some  boys may move from a socially acceptable level of force into  the realm of socially unacceptable violence.  What that means is that 'the guys' are going to have to  take a more active role in helping their sons and daughters  learn to deal with the violence.  'Real men' who are concerned about the welfare of their  children do attend such meetings ��� and set an example.  litters  Not the Coast way  A recent front-page picture of  a family facing eviction from  their Cooper Road home disturbed me enough to write.  Where, oh where is Ihe roar  of protest from this communily  al such an outrage? A family of  five on notice to be thrown out  of their home, and this is on the  Sunshine Coast. Instead of  protest letters to the editor, we  simply have silence.  Bear with me one moment  while I muse over the facts  behind this story. Our present  SCRDB in Sechelt consists of  five regional directors, who are  by and large, mature, thoughtful  people doing their job as best  they can. Much of their work is  based on recommendations and  proposals from staff members  who are well paid for their  expertise in their own areas....  So our Board acted on a recommendation from staff. The  ��� question now is who? Wljo '  made the recommendation to  evict?  Seems our chief building  inspector (Willy Price) has a bee  in his bonnet ��� thai all homes  on his walch must have a Final  Certificate of Occupancy, and  we chosen few miscreants must  bow to his proposal or he will  threaten to record the fact of "no  inspection" on our title deeds in  Vancouver....  ...I have long maintained that  our present building department  is grossly over-staffed, in a new  expensive building, with a row  of new, leased vehicles parked  outside, and now they wish to  inspect homes going back years.  Come on.  I finished my home two and a  half years ago, called for Final  and Occupancy, had the inspection, and as was normal at the  time, was told, "just move on in,  laddie."  At the same time, I  approached the inspector for  approval of my boat shed lower  down on my property, and  again, verbal approval was  given on the spot. This is how it  was done, gentlemen, and no  matter how hard you try, you  cannot change history.  But i can also appreciate that  my boat shed, with no visible  permit, must sit like a cactus  under Mr. Price's saddle, and  now the driving force towards  the shed's removal becomes  apparent....  This is not the way we do  business on the Coast, gentlemen. Our problems have always  been solved in a more gentle  fashion, instead of the 'in your  face' confrontation methods of  Mr. Price.  The Building Department is  on far too long a lease and it's  time that our elected members  hauled in a lot of slack and  made this department far more  accountable to the Board.  Having come to the Coast,  presumably because he liked the  way we live, it appears Mr.  Price wants to change everybody's lifestyle.

Even if you have to  keep his articles on as part of a  contractual arrangement, let's at  least have a rest on Thursdays!  I, for one, cbn't wish to be subject lo 'Snoozings.'  Might I suggest you make  further use of the remarkable  gifls of Joel Johnstone. He is up  there with Ihe besl. Perhaps he  should have a section to himself  every week entitled Picture of  the Week, with a descriptive  passage as to the story behind it  and why he considers it worthy  of his choice. So many of his  photos have that extra quality  which would bear further investigation.  JOSEPHINE A. HAMMOND  Gibsons  Clean mean streets  It is 12:15 am. I have just  been awakened by an air-raid-  siren sound coming from a  street-cleaning vacuum cleaner.  Why are residents gelling  woken out of Iheir sleep for  clean streets?  Is this town so wealthy?  Maybe we should put down  astro turf to vacuum.  It seems crazy to waste  money just to wake people up.  People complained aboul the  gravel pit; this streetcleaning is  100 times worse.  Whal is it costing us to clean  streets that don't need it?  CAVIN CRAWFORD  Sechelt  Excuse me, could I please have words with you?  As an editor, I probably see more words in a  day than many people see in a week. So you can  probably take my word for it when I say that words  can be funny ��� sometimes on purpose, sometimes  not.  One of the easiest places to find funny words is  in Ihe lexicon of the politically correct (or PC) ���  an area that's frequently mined by writers of the  right; they relish the backlash Ihey get from violating the new taboos. Left-wing writers, who usually  have some form of alliance with the creators of PC  language, are loathe to get involved in looking at  some of the absurdities lhal result.  However, in my mind, a silly word is a silly  word i.s a silly word, whatever side of Ihe spectrum  on which it tails. (The previous sentence is an  example of being 0C ��� grammatically correct;  it's constructed so lhal ii doesn't end wilh the  preposition 'on.' Those on the other side of Ihis  particular argument always fall back on Ihe example, allegedly constructed by Winston Churchill  who supposedly was tweaked by a subordinate for  making such an error. "This is ihe lype of impudence up wilh which I will nol put." ihe greal man  is reputed to have replied.)  See, the words are gelling silly already, and we  haven't even advanced lo PC yel.  Now, we have. Where I gel inlo trouble with PC  language i.s where words are altered on a case-by-  case basis; since I have ihem going by me a great  rate several days a week. I am hoping to find a rule  between the lines  that can be applied. Let's say we refer to the president of an organization as the 'chair' instead of the  the past practice of using Ihe word 'chairman' or  'chairwoman.'  Fine, I can deal with that, as far as it goes. However, when, right after that, I encounter Ihe case of  a woman who is a member of a Toastmasters' club,  I (whimsically) want lo refer lo her as 'toast' ��� or  would it he more appropriate to ihink of her as a  'toaster?'  And if we reduce 'chairman' to 'chair,' should  we not cut back the title of vice president? ��� as in  "Abu Dobby is the vice of the Friars' Club."  Inquiring, word-quirky minds want lo know.  Some of the other changes are easier to deal  with: 'fire fighter' instead of 'fireman' or 'mail  carrier' instead of 'mailman.' However, I notice  that no one wants to deal wilh a substitute for Ihe  word 'manhole' ��� for reasons that are obvious.  However, not all the funny words originate in  PC language. Headline wriling, which requires the  larry marshall  summing up of several hundred words into one  sentence, usually under gruelling lime constraints,  can lead lo some very very strange word usage.  Several years ago, when I was working for the  CBC as an open-line show host, my co-workers  and I noticed that a headline writer at the Regina  Leader Post had a tendency lo use the word 'said'  ��� very frequently ��� in a peculiar way. A sample  headline might have read this way: "Report said  due shortly" or "Mayor said tired of the limelight."  This was such a templing construction lhat we  came up with a fictionalized news slory which  would best point up the absurdity of thai headline  writer's word usage.  We hypothesized thai a medical doctor wilh  left-wing political tendencies was rumored to have  died so that we could write this headline: "Red  med said dead."  Academic or scientific experts arc often lay a  minefield of specialized weird word usage lhal can  explode a reporter's best efforts to provide, plain-  language, readable stories about their aclivities.  It's not jusl media people who are know this.  For several years, I did freelance work with a consulting company that trained government department and business executives to deal with the  media.  My job was to go into a TV studio and interview them ��� jusl as if they were doing it in real  life. When they lapsed into jargon ��� "the plant has  been discharging effluent into the aquatic environment" ��� I was paid to keep at them until Ihey  turned (he statement into real English ��� "the plant  has been dumping pollutants inlo the water."  Some of these jargon terms have very specific,  narrow meanings lo others in the same field, which  is why they are used in reporis or studies. Bul  some, like the "aquatic environment' example, are  actually designed to obscure, rather than clarify,  meaning. And that's not funny.  I guess I'm addicted lo words. How else to  explain going home afler a day of working with  them and amusing myself by playing Scrabble?  Of course, I couldn't slop ai jusl playing Scrabble; next ihing I knew, I was making up 'neo-  words' ��� "growf," for example, which I defined  as "economic growth in the practice of veterinary  medicine." And words that had ihe kind of impaci  which made them appear to mean something, even  though they didn't: aflirke, rampid, farlette and  fartetla...  Words? I gotta million of 'em.

This is in response to the letter  from the Sechelt Village Residents' Association of March 28,  1994 regarding their decision in  favour of the (Tong) property  being designated as parkland in  perpetuity.  As you may be aware, council  has received a volume of letters  from the public at large supporting the purchase of the Tong  property for park. We have also  been provided a plethora of information from the Trail Bay project  committee and other interested  parties.  This has included both public  and privale audiences with oral  and written presentations to  council (two occasions), the  mayor (two occasions), Ihe  deputy mayor and individual  councillors, planning committee,  parks and recreation committee,  as well as a large volume of  information through the media.  This is in addition to information  provided through the OCP, the  planning department and staff in  general.  As a result, council has had  access to more information on  this issue than on any other and  we are well aware of the desire to  have this property purchased and  dedicated as a park and the benefits that accrue from that. In point  of fact, council would have no  objection to development of the  property as a park.  However, the realities of Ihe  situation supersede any such  wish. First of all, Ihe property is  currently zoned C-2 which  Mayor Earl Basse  allows for commercial and multi-  family development. Not only  does Mr. Tong have the right to  develop Ihe property as he deems  fit in accordance wit the zoning,  but we have a duty to comply  with his proposals without unreasonable delay as long as they  meel the development permit  standards and the local zoning  codes.  Notwithstanding what some  residents have intimated in the  media, we are not a dictatorship  and we cannot arbitrarily re-zone  Mr. Tong's property into a park  without paying full market value  to him.  That is the issue here. Do we  have up to $2 million to pay Mr.  Tong for his property?  Proposals have been made to  council indicating that this property could be obtained at no cost  to the district. Nowhere in any of  those proposals has anyone  shown us that that property was  free or even affordable. It always  came down lo Ihe poinl lhal we  would pay full value for it, and  we're not aware that Mr. Tong is  prepared to donate that properly  to the district for the purpose of a  park.  It is his property to do wilh as  he pleases within the zoning  guidelines, the same right  enjoyed by you or anyone else  that owns property in the district.  The properly value cannot be  reduced without compensation  and in this case that would mean  full market value.  Could we get financial assistance from the regional district? I  have just sat through three  months of SCRD finance committee meetings and the SCRD  would not be able lo provide anything more than token financing  at this time.  The bottom line as we in  council see it ��� and no one has  provided us substantive evidence  to the contrary ��� if we re-zone  the Tong properly to parkland as  you propose, the District of  Sechelt would pay for it as if it  were expropriated.  For us to buy 1.1 hectares of  property at an estimated $2 million, particularly when we  already own Ihe ocean front, is  folly and we in council are not  prepared to approve such an  expenditure.  Instead, we have opted to take  what we consider the best option  for the community as a whole, ie,  utilize the development permit  provisions and work wilh the  architect to provide the best  amenities in accordance with current zoning. We already own the  beach and as you will note, beach  accessibility would be permitted  through the Tong property, a  park-like setting would be provided and as much natural  growth as possible would be preserved al no cosl lo the district.  There has nol been sufficient  strategic planning for park property in Ihe pasl and we do nol  have the needed capital to purchase parkland at this time.  Council will be considering initiatives such as Bill C-57, park  developmeni cosl charges and  zoning incentives to provide park  property in Ihe future. Although  that does not help us with the  Tong property, it should go a  long way to alleviating the problem.  It is unfortunate thai Ihe energies expended by Ihose who want  this park could not be channelled  into more positive environs such  as improvements of Snicket and  Hackett Parks, beach rights-of-  way or acquisition of parkland at  Mission Point, Chapman Creek  and along the Inlet and Strait of  Georgia, which are affordable  and fully supported by council.  However, they have been  inflexible and only the Tong  property will do. When one considers the other major, capital  projecls that are needed in the  district, such as a recreation centre, arena improvements, library  and police office, we simply cannot afford Trail Bay Park at this  time.  Council must act with fiscal  responsibility and with the best  interests of the community as a  whole in mind and we have done  Mother's Tfdy  Lunch.

For this reason, we have no  plans to purchase Trail Bay Park  but will continue to work with  the developer to improve his project and to secure public access  and open space components  offered by him.  EARL D. BASSE  Mayor or Sechelt  Business of buses  Something for BC Transit  executives to think about while  driving to work to their assigned,  free parking spaces.  It rains an awful lot in the  Lowisi Mainland. Peoplt; have np  incentive to leave their cars at  home and take the bus when they  have to stand in the rain and wind  waiting for a bus on which they  may or may not get a seat. BC  Transit has erected a good many  bus shelters but they should build  a bus shelter at every bus stop.  If BC Transit throws up its  hands in horror at Ihe expense of  erecting these additional shelters,  then in your hearts you don't care  if people take the bus or not.  Which a lot of us suspect is Ihe  case.  And another thing. BC Transit  policy is that buses wait at the  terminals with the door closed  until the bus's departure time and  then load the waiting passengers.  This is fine except for one exception ��� the West Vancouver Blue  Bus terminal at Horseshoe Bay.  Al the Horseshoe Bay terminal there is a splendid new shelter  with bench. Morning walk-on  passengers from Ihe 8:30 am  Langdale ferry dash up to this  Blue Bus terminal to get the  express bus to Vancouver. The  empty express bus is there at the  terminal wilh no driver in sight.  In order to get a seat on the  express bus Ihey ignore the shel  ter and form a queue, standing in  the wind and the rain and waiting  for the bus driver to appear and  let them on the bus at departure  time. Could BC Transit at the  Horseshoe Bay terminal have the  driver remain in the standing  express bus at the terminal and  allow passengers from the 8:30  am Langdale ferry lo board as  they reached the bus?  You caler to the 6:20 am  Langdale ferry commuters,  boarding Ihem immediately at a  point near the ferry terminal. You  can at least grant this small  favour to the 8:30 am Langdale  walk-on passengers. Think of  yourself standing in the bus  queue at Horseshoe Bay, freezing  from icy winter winds off the  water and have a heart. (I may  not have taken the proper tone for  a supplicant. I would like to say  that your buses are clean and well  maintained and that your bus  drivers are excellent.)  BROCK HANSEN  Halfmoon Bay  Pender pool safe  After attending the informational meeling on April 20 dealing with the arsenic problems in  our area I was quite impressed  with the way all three environmental health officers conducted  the meeting. There were a lot of  valid concerns brought up about  . children swimming in a pool with  arsenic above the allowable  drinking level of .025 mg/litre.  Tim Adams took a sample of  the pool water right after the  meeting and had the test results  for me by Monday morning. The  results showed a level of .084  mg/litre, just over three limes the  allowable limit. This limit was  changed just two years ago when  it was once .05 mg/litre.  Tim Adams assured me thai  Dr. Paul Martiquet, an expert on  this subject, stated that it is safe  to swim and or sauna at the Pender Harbour Pool despite reservations of some of the patrons. The  amount of water that might be  ingested would be minimal and  would not have any adverse  effects.  In the meantime the Pender  Harbour Aquatic Society is  researching the various systems  on the market for arsenic  removal, including reverse osmosis, activated alumina and ion  exchange, which will bring the  arsenic level below the allowable  limits.  MARIE BISSON-  MONTPETIT  Director, Pender Harbour  Aquatic & Fitness Centre  Organic survival  Thank you, Coasl News, tot  your editorial comment re: the  organic produce stand....I would  like also lo respond to a few  statements in the article on the  stand issue:  ��� We are in operation in the  front of the store; it was a legal  alternative suggested by the  town. I am grateful to continue  my job and push organic, but this  makes my day much longer  because I must put away the  whole operation every time I'm  there, rain or sun. Also the front  is very hot, really not too good  for the produce pr me. All of this  is because 'the'town will not  allow it to continue 10 feet away  around the corner.  ��� I remained open after  December '93 because the lown  gave Ihree monlhs to look at Ihe  issue. I might add this came  about only after I freaked out  over them wanting to shut it  down then and there.  ��� In mid-January I hired a  structural engineer and checked  out safety as they had asked. The  stand could never meet code  because the code does not cover  lean-to shelters. I told them of  some work and bracing thai is not  finished because of Ihe stop-work  order. I also lold them I would  double up the two by sixes if that  was a safety factor in big snowfalls. Although il is safe, it does  nol meet code but it does nol  need to. They would nol look at  this.  ��� I did find alternate parking  spaces. I still have them.

Madelia Pat  88W875  news  Plans afoot to preserve seaside corridors  by Don Anderson  Plans are under way lo create  an inland sea preservation corridor around Ihe Sunshine Coasl,  encompassing Ihe Sechell Intel,  Salmon Inlet and Narrows Inlet.  Gertrude Pacific, chair of the  Sechell Heritage Foresl Proposal  and resident of Sandy Hook, has  submitted a proposal to join  parks around the three inlets into  a single protected area.  "People around here really do  care about Ihe inlet," Pacific said  following her presentation to the  Dislricl of Sechelt environmental  committee April 26.  "It would generally be a wonderful playground lhat we could  have in the future."  In late-February, the Ministry  of Forests' Protected Areas Strat  egy Team issued a nolice asking  for public input into determining  areas of interest for preservation.  If the plan is followed, the  creeks flowing into Ihe inlets  would be protected, thereby furthering the Salmon Enhancement  Program. "It could be a wonderful boon lo Ihe salmon population. Restoring streams is a very  important thing that is going on  these days," she said. "Anything  we could do to improve Ihe habitat would be wonderful and Ihis  would provide for that.  "In a way, il would protect the  whole inlel waters by protecting  all Ihe area around il."  The proposal's rools extend  back to a 199(1 sludy of Ihe Ihree  inlets commissioned by Ihe Sunshine Coast Regional Dislricl and  Foreshore Advisory Task Force.  The sludy indicated Ihere was a  significant amount of public concern about Ihe future of Ihe inlets  surrounding Ihe Sunshine Coasl.  If the area is approved for further sludy by Ihe strategy team, it  could take several years of intensive review before the area is  actually designated as a protected  area. "I would characterize it as  strengthening and enhancing the  other three proposals ��� Ihe  Mounl Richardson, Ihe Caren  Range and Ihe Tetrahedron,"  Pacific said.  The proposal will be beneficial lo Ihe whole of Ihe Coast,  she added, notably to tourism-  related businesses and Ihe real  estate market.  She referred to a study on  Yellowstone National Park and  its affect on the economy of  neighboring towns, completed in  the early 1990s.  "The study found lhat all the  small towns around Yellowstone,  in the lasl 10 years, had really  had an economic boom and il  wasn't because of the resource-  based economy," she said.  "What it was is people wanted  to move there because the quality of life was so beauliful."  Pacific would like to see a  similar impaci occur on the  Coasl, with an emphasis placed  on the nalural 'viewscapes' and  hiking opportunities of Ihe inlets.  If designated for protection,  the ihree inlets would fall under  the Natural Environment Based  Outdoor Recreation Sites.

Joel Johnstone  photo  School board policy born out of condom issue  by Darah Hansen  The Sunshine Coast's School  District 46 officially entered the  1990s last week with the passing  of a policy on condom machines  in schools.  District trustees unanimously  agreed to pass the controversial  condom policy at last Tuesday's  board meeting (April 26).  "We'd like to help students  choose healthy lifestyles," board  chair Pat Stuart said outside  Tuesday's meeting.  The policy states that "upon  the application to the board by a  parent advisory committee  (PAC), the installation of or  removal of a condom machine  will be permitted, provided lhal  the request satisfies the regulations."  The "regulations" referred to  in the policy are administrative  rules which outline the board's  decision-making process in  approving the installation of the  condom machines.  Receiving parental approval is  key to allowing (he installation of  Ihe machines in school washrooms. Furthermore, each condom machine will be accompanied by information warning students about AIDS and other sexually-transmitted diseases as well  as offering other safe-sex choices.  Stuart said the board considers  the installation of the machines  part of a "health issue. There is a  fear of AIDS out there... We don't  believe we can ignore the issue,"  she said. Students at Sechelt's  Chatelech Secondary started the  ball rolling for the condom policy almost three years ago.  Results from two informal  surveys distributed at the school  showed an overwhelming number of students were already  engaged in sexual relations. Students were also asked whether  they wanted condom machines  installed at Chatelech; 90 per  cent responded in the affirmative.;  Condom machine proponents  cited as their concerns unwanted  pregnancies, sexually transmitted  diseases and AIDS in particular.

Joel Johnstone photo  Parents ignore school panel on violence  by Christine Bodt  Sparse attendance at a panel  discussion on violence and its  effects on the community and  children troubled the parents,  teachers and panelists who did  turn up at Cedar Grove Elementary School.  "It's so frustrating," teacher  Susan Budgell told the gathering  in the virtually empty gym.  "There are 370 students at Ihis  school and yet half the people  here are teachers. We (teachers)  had to come."  About 40 people attended the  meeting to discuss violence  issues with a nine-member panel  at a community interaction  evening on'fhursday (April 28)  night.  The lack of men at the meeting was another concern. "There  are only six males here, and yet  male violence is one of our  major concerns.  "This is pretty typical for this  kind of meeting," said panel  member    Reverend    Frank  Schmilt of People Against Violence in Entertainment (PAVE).  Three of the males were teachers.  "We need to reach young  men,     provide  them with bridges       for change," panelist and lawyer  Don Fairweather  said.  School district  counsellor Tom  Piros said that  boys have to learn  that anger itself  isn't bad; instead,  it's how they  express anger that  can be harmful!    "We need lo  look at how we  resolve conflict ourselves and be  better models for our children,"  Debbie Mealia of Project Parent  said.  Teacher Karen Webb added  lhat the community needed to  'We need to look at  bow we resolve  conflict ourselves  and be better  models/or  our children'  "  -Debbie Mealia  models.  Lynn McKay, of Transition  House's Children Who Witness  Violence program, agreed, and  noted that the Coast did not  have a Big  ��������������� Brothers association.  Al the same  time, violence in  the media is a  major influence  on children, panelists said.  According to  Schmilt, between  grades one and  12, children have  an average  of   "_     6,000 hours of  education,  but  watch      about  18,000 hours of violence on  television.  "TV is a distancing, not an  engaging activity. It allows the  normalization of an acceptable  level of violence," said panel  create more positive male role      member Stephanie Crane who is  SPCA shelter move suggested  by Don Anderson  Recurring complaints about  noise may force the Sunshine  Coasl SPCA to find a more suitable location for its existing  shelter.  Stan Jones, dog control officer for the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD), has  forwarded his concerns about  the noise problem to Peggy  Connor, chair of the SCRD.  : "I believe lhat the best solution to the ongoing problems al  the Sunshine Coast SPCA  would be to move the facility,"  writes Jones in a letter to Connor dated April 20.  Jones suggests moving the  facility lo one of two locations  ��� either a piece of property at  the Sechelt and Gibsons Airport  On Field Road or an area currently being developed for  sewage disposal on Ihe garbage  dump road in Sechell.  i  "ll is a noise problem," said  Jones, adding that the shelter  must "definitely" be moved to  another location.  The existing noise bylaw  stipulates that the shelter is prohibited from being a disturbance  to neighbors.  "The people down Ihere (in  Gibsons) have had petition after  petition," Jones said.  In most cases, Jones will  visit the shelter and remove the  perpetrator of the noise to the  Gibsons Animal Hospital, "and  the SPCA would handle it from  there," he said.  The suggestion of moving  the shelter to Field Road  stemmed from a visit to various  dog pounds in Vancouver. In  talking lo representatives of the  pounds, Jones was told lhat if he  didn't put the pound in a light  industrial area, he would have  "nothing but problems."  Jones believes a half acre of  land at Ihe airport would pro  vide enough area to construct  two runs for the dogs, thereby  separating the troublemakers  from the less rambunctious  canines.  The other area suggested is a  section of Ihe garbage dump in  Sechelt, located more than half  a kilometre from any residential  areas.  Jones is unsure of the costs  of building a new shelter,  although it will probably depend  on the structure's size and  design.  Bernard McGrath, past president of the SPCA, has suggested  that the move could represent an  inconvenience for staff and the  ability to recruit volunteers.  "That has nothing to do with  me.  "My concern is the noise  being stopped and I'm sure  they've got enough dedicated  volunteers that will gel up  there," Jones said.  Vancouver Foundation funds 9-3-7  The Vancouver Foundation  has given a total of $8,000 in  grants lo the Nine-Three-Seven  Childcare Sociely lo help furnish and equip the new child  care centre at the corner of  Highway 101 and North Road in  Gibsons.  The Sociely operates a  licensed after-school care program which serves Gibsons,  Langdale and Cedar Grove  schools.  It has been in operation for  one year and has had the support  of the Vancouver Foundation  since ils opening in a temporary  space in St. Bartholomew's  Church Hall.  This month the permanent  facility is completed and the  Society will move the childcare  programs into a new, bright,  fully equipped and furnished  space.  The after-school care program will be expanded and an  infant-toddler care program is  being developed. There are limited spaces available for after-  school care now, and registration is being taken for the 1994-  95 school year.  RECYCLE THIS NEWSPAPER  a private counsellor.  RCMP Const. Don Davidson  pointed oiy that children also  become used to violence in real  life.  "We see kids at the recurring  domestic disputes and it's like  they're totally undisturbed.  Their faces are calm. They think  it's all normal."  Schmitt was especially critical of TV cartoons, which he  said show an act of violence  every 30 seconds.  Because cartoons are made  specifically for children, he said,  parents don't ihink the programs  are violent.  ,"A kid sees, that rabbit gel  steamrolled, then get up a few  seconds later. The kid thinks  that if he shoots a friend, he'll  just get up again."  Piros said that "as long as we  watch the violence on TV, in  movies and video games, they'll  keep making them with it.  They're in il for Ihe money."  SECHELT  5528 Wharf Street'885-2526  Friday & .Saturday, May 6&7  A       UVE  H  Friday Night BBQ Steak Supper $8.00 6-8pm  OPEN SUNDAYS 12-6/ LUNCHtS MOM. ��� HI.

At a public information meeting about waste reduction, three-  year Coast resident Don Beck  said he was surprised at the two-  can-per-week limit on curb-side  garbage collection in Gibsons.  "In Coquitlam, I would put  out up to 14 bags. I don't think I  can get down to below two cans;  that's just inviting trouble," he  said. "Haven't we already  achieved a good level of waste  reduction? Is this really achievable?"  The provincial government  has mandated that all regional  districts reduce the amount of  waste generated by 30 per cent in  1995, and SO per cent by the year  2000.  SCRAPS recycling operator  Jeff Collins said that people  shouldn't be intimidated by Ihe  50-per-cent reduction requirement. "It's definitely achievable  in a close-knit community like  this."  Resident Carol Ann Glover  told Beck that her household produced less than one four-gallon  can of garbage a week, and  offered to teach him her methods  of garbage reduction.  About 20 Gibsons residents  attended Tuesday's meeting.  "We're here to listen to all of  your comments on the options  we've come up with," SCRD  solid waste management coordinator Cathy Kenny told residents  who attended the meeting. The  various waste reduction options  are detailed in the draft report of  stage one of the Solid Waste  Management Plan.  One option that suggested lobbying senior government to  reduce consumer packaging  raised Ihe ire of resident Gerry  Spencer.  "It's unrealistic, idealistic and  ridiculous." He went .on to criticize the BC government's decision that garbage incineration  would not count towards the 30-  per-cent reduction target.  Committee member Jim Gurney said that incineration was  just exchanging one form of pollution for another.  HELLO NEIGHBOURS!  We would like to introduce ourselves ...

Twenty-year Coast resident  Bill Hughes questioned the large  increase in SCRD spending on  recycling. In 1993, the SCRD  spent $54,231 on recycling. To  date, the total for 1994 is  $221,047. Kenny lold Hughes  that federal funding for SCRAPS  had ended, so the SCRD went  from funding no recycling programs lasl year to funding three  depots this year.  Glover, an avid recycler, said  she didn't understand why people  were willing to pay for garbage  collection through taxes but not  for recycling. "I'd like to see in  the report the true cost of garbage  disposal; it's not just pick-up and  disposal."  Hughes and others also questioned the increasing costs at the  Coast's two public landfills.  "A landfill used to be a cheap  way to deal with garbage; you  could just dump it and leave it,"  Kenny said. However, the Ministry of Environment now  requires full-time landfill supervision, gas and water monitoring  and other cosily operations.  The cosl of developing Ihe  solid waste management plan  itself was another concern.  Spencer lambasted Ihe BC government for using the taxpayers'  money lo conduct sludy after  study. He suggested thai the  committee look to other districts  for help lo prepare the plan.  "Don't reinvent Ihe wheel at  our cost. Show us a community  that's 10 years ahead of us that's  cost effective...so we don't make  mistakes," he said.  Gurney said lhal eventually  some of the options would be  decided hy a referendum. The  SCRD has to complete and submit its waslc-reduction plan to  Ihe Minister of Environment by  Dec. 31,1995.  Other committee members  who attended the meeting were  Pender Harbour community participant Tom Barker and Valerie  Verrall of GRIPS (Garbage  Recycling in Pender Society).  Garbage reduction  methods detailed  Reducing residential garbage  collection from two cans to one  per week is jusl one of the many  suggestions outlined in the Solid  Waste Management Plan  (SWMP).  The recently finished stage-  one draft report uses the 'Five R'  hierarchy (reduce, reuse, recycle,  recover and residual management) to outline the various  options the regional district's  SWMP committee found to  reduce garbage.  Other suggestions under  reduction include:  ��� Material bans and levies al  landfills bul only if alternative  places for banned materials exist.  ��� A user-pay system to  replace taxes for collection, so  households producing less  garbage pay less.  Reuse options include:  ��� Allowing salvage permits  at landfills and setting up a  'Share Shed' lo drop off items  for others to claim and reuse.  The report says the key lo  successful recycling programs is  collecting high qualily, uncon-  taminated 'recyclables' for  which   markets   have   been  secured. Recycling suggestions  include:  ��� Developing a composting  program with either backyard  composlers or a central facility.  The only resource-recovery  (retrieving useful or marketable  products from mixed garbage)  option suggests looking at using  the co-generator al HSPP for  diverting non-recyclable wood  and paper.  Among the residual management (leftover garbage after Ihe  other four R processes are finished) ideas are:  ��� Incinerating waste and  landfill leftovers.  ��� Establishing transfer stations to sort garbage, and divert  waste lo a cenlral landfill.  The purpose of stage one of  Ihe SWMP was lo evaluate existing systems and io identify the  various options available to  reduce waste.  Stage two will involve Ihe  evaluation of Ihe options in more  detail.  Stage ihree, lo include final  decisions on waste reduction,  musl be given lo the Minister of  Environmenl by the end of 1995.  Declaration  Let It be known publicly that I, Benoit J. LePage have just  acquired a trek of land (18.36 acres) in Langdale and that I  have every intention on making it my permanent place of  residency.  After living in Gibsons for nearly 27 years, and having a  piece of prime commercial property that the Town of  Qibsons wouldn't allow me to develop as I see fit, I'm  packing my belongings and liquidating the bulk of my  assets (real and/or imaginary) and getting on with my life  I refuse to allow myself to continue living under the  dictatorial policies ot the Township.

A newspaper report of aclion  in the D-Day landings of June 6,  1944? An observation of staff  officers making the secret plans  the year before? Not at all.  This was an opening statement of an article in the August  1943 issue of the National Geographic which circulates widely  in North America. And this  almost a year before the allied  landings.  Was security losl by publishing this chatty information arti  cle? Probably not.  D-Day preparations were not  jeopardized by this prophetic  coincidence since post-war documents show the enemy expected an invasion, alright, but in  another region.  The article goes on to tell of  William Ihe Conqueror assembling his fleet for his successful  invasion of England in 1066.  Quite a travelogue, Ihis article,  unfortunately nol available to us  before we crossed the channel,  or La Manche as the French call  it, in 1944.  A thank you to Monty Marler  of Hopkins who came across  this Geographic in a used book  store in southern California.  Kiwi  When a fruit called Ihe Chinese gooseberry was firsl produced in quantity il had absolutely no markei appeal. Then in  the 1950s Ihe New Zealand  growers in a moment of inspiration came up wilh the name  Kiwi fruit.  Does Kiwi have an appeal  lhal fascinates our ear? Perhaps  the name is more important than  the product. Like that plastic lid  that provides so much aimless  amusement as it's thrown about  at a sunny beach, a lid which  had no sales al all until it was  re-named "frisbee." Then il sold  by the hundreds to hordes of  eager buyers.  Bul some say references lo  China were nol proper or, in Ihe  jargon of Ihe universities, nol  politically correct. Not in Ihe  1950s. Not in the USA, but  under another name...  Bul Ihe fruil itself, now a  popular snack wilh Norlh American youth, contains all kinds of  nutrients, more per gram than  bananas or oranges. A good  meal lenderizer it is, too.  Even ihe skin, some say, is a  good source of fibre. Fibre in  our diet is needed for you know  whal. After chewing a Kiwi  skin, however, I would suggest a  good place for the skin is Ihe  garden compost heap. Take bran  instead ��� much less prickly.  'round west howe sound  by Joan Peterson  Any reader for this occasional  article has nol found the focus on  chat-ups of various births/bake  sales and bowling scores, but an  atlempl to stimulate participation  in the Wesl Howe Sound Electors Association through reports  on community concerns.  To judge by the painfully  small turnout for the April meeting, that challenge has not been  met. But reluctance to accept  reality poses another possibility.  The 105 past and present  WHSEA member excluded  leaves 1,176 registered voters in  SCRD Area F, not computing  with West Howe Sound and  therefore not knowing where  they're al. Should such be the  case, an explanation follows.  Consider the plight of organizers seeking a suitable name  for a much-needed collective  voice of the community.  The most recognizable identification would have been abandoned, since the regional district  had stuck us with their all-purpose alphabetical designation: A  lo F equals Egmont to Port Mellon. Expedient, but not user-  friendly. The Sunshine Coast  Regional District Area F Electors' Association (SCRDAFEA!)  hardly rolls off the tongue and in  print looks like a communicable  disease.

Tales of stores  closed up, scores of vacancies in  the malls and accommodation  rentals going begging are evidence of how much the business  people have depended on the  Canadian dollar in the past to  supplement their cash flow.  Scenic spendour  A young wader, looking east  at sunset. Joel Johnstone photo  Whether it is by accident or  design, our out-of-country medical insurance and the sharp  decrease in our dollar have  forced many people to reconsider their vacation plans. Holiday-  ers are planning travel in Canada which is not altogether a bad  idea. At least we will boost our  own economy and get a fair dollar's worth for our money. _.  On April 7 the DB/WC**  library held their annual Book  Sale and Tea, raising $157  towards the purchase of new  books. They wish to thank all  the volunteers, members and  people in the area who supported their effort.  Effective in June, membership in the library at the cost of  $3 also includes use of the  Sechelt branch, a service that  has been favoured for some  time. The librarian would like to  remind all those whose memberships have lapsed to please  renew them as soon as possible.  Hours are 12 noon to 4 pm Friday and 2 pm to 4 pm Saturday.  On the subject of successful  sales, the PAC (Parents Advisory Council) of Davis Bay elementary school held its silent  auction and garage sale on April  23 and it was a smashing success raising $1,850. They wish  to extend sincere thanks to all  those who donated, who attended and spent money and those  who worked so hard to make it  such a triumph.  On May 10 the council meets  to decide where (his money will  be spent and will pass it on so  you, the community, will know  the worthwhile projects that will  benefit.  There are growing concerns  about drivers who are flagrantly  ignoring the STOP signs in  Davis Bay and I have been  asked to mention it in the col  umn. The three-way stop at Laurel and Bay Roads and the two-  way stop at Whitaker and Davis  Bay Roads are the Iwo main  dangers because of the number  of children who walk on these  roads daily on their way to  school.  One mother reporis she was  walking her children to school  and pushing a baby buggy when  a van rolled right through the  stop sign on Bay Road and just  missed them. Every school day  morning, cars roar up and down  Whitaker, some stopping at the  sign, but most rolling right  through and on up the hill to the  school.  Two minutes later, down the  hill they bomb again. Dog walkers on Whitaker dare not step  out on the road before 9 am for  fear either ihey, or their dog or  both, will get hit by some frantic  driver trying to get their child to  school before Ihe bell.  Let's try to make all people  more aware of the traffic signs  and thus make our community a  safer place to walk. As we have  no sidewalks, we must use the  sides of the roads to stroll on  and so do the kids.  This coming Sunday is the  special day we pay tribute to  mothers. All week long I have  had Ihe phrase "you've come a  long way, baby" running around  in my head.  1 know it was used for several years and still may be, to  advertise, I think, cigarettes. But  whal it was meant to infer was  that women had really "come a  long way." But have we really.'  When we Ihink of our mothers and grandmothers, what  have we done lhal is so much  different? Except we have more  sophisticated equipment to do il  wilh.  On reading a book detailing  ihe pioneer years, one is struck  by Ihe courage and purpose of  the women in Ihose times. Many  left comfortable homes lo travel  inlo untried and unknown territory, bereft of any kind of comforts. They lived in covered  wagons, sod houses and tents,  worked like men and still had  lime to be wives and mothers.  This Mother's Day, honour  yours.

NOVA  JEWELLERY LTD.  mncEu  Trail Bay Mall,  Sechelt  885-2421  by Jan DeGrass  Personal satisfaction. Social  conscience. A better community.  These are a few of the reasons  why Sunshine Coast residents  will volunteer wilh the many  local government committees  that help direct our communities.  "I've watched Halfmoon Bay  go from four full-time families to  30," says retired engineer Ken  Moore, chair of the local Advisory Planning Committee. "I've  also realized that other areas of  ihe province didn't start soon  enough to control growth. That  was my motivation."  Although Ihe eight- to 10-per-  son committee meets only once a  monlh and checks in with SCRD  director Peggy Connor, much of  Ihe members' lime is taken up  investigating the issues. For  example, a resident wants a variance from the established community plan, or a company wants  a burning permit while neighbours object. As the problem  emerges, Moore toes that fine  line between making recommendations and setting precedents for  the future. "We have lo do what  the community asks," says  Moore. "When I'm 10 years  older, this community will be a  nicer place for me to live in."  sechelt scenario  Moore is also a member of the  Arts Council, director of the  Coast Guard and is involved with  the Welcome Beach Community  Association. He acknowledges  that he's busier now than when  he worked full time.  This work load is no surprise  to volunteer Barry Janyk of the  Outdoor Recreation Advisory  Committee. He has noticed that  "the people who are the busiest  seem to always have the time to  extend themselves a little  more..."  Janyk clearly enjoys working  with the community task force  that advised the Economic  Development office on everything from bicycle paths to scuba  diving. An outdoor enthusiast  and local mountain climber,  Janyk brings an eclectic knowledge of such topics as heliport  design, forestry surveying and  conflict negotiation to his role in  community affairs. He is also  involved in numerous other projects, from the Marsh Society to  fundraising for his children's  school.  Another committee, for which  Janyk represents the town of  Gibsons, promises to be a "test  bed project" for other areas of  the province. The group has  spent over two years examining  alternatives to the herbicides  used to destroy vegetation under  BC Hydro lines.  "You have to work for your  community in order for it to be  healthy," explains Janyk, which  raises an important point. There  already exists a hardworking  regional district staff ready lo  map, plan, monitor and build on  behalf of the taxpayer ��� even  when it requires that extra step  beyond their job description. But  at last count, there were 29 committees associated with the  regional district alone, (though  some incorporate representatives  from the other three municipalities.)  There just isn't enough paid  staff lo attend every meeling and  work on all the issues that a  healthy, energetic community  can raise, suggests Janyk. Incorporating the expertise of volunteers makes sense.  Sue Fitchell would agree. She  considers that one of her reasons  for volunteering is that her  municipal government, the  SCRD, really listens to the recommendations and advice of (he  community groups. By heeding  this collective voice the group  becomes "part of the planning  and decision-making process.  And that's exciting."  Fitchell has served as an alternate to Wesl Howe Sound director Tony Laver for Ihe pasl five  years. Alternates attend board  meetings only if the director is  unable to do so, yel musl keep  up-to-dale on issues and sit on  the local Advisory Planning  Committee. In this case, seven  residents, appointed by the area  director, research and advise on  local development.  The three areas ��� Roberls  Creek, Elphinstone and Wesl  Howe Sound ��� share some concerns, notably facilities such as  the swimming pool and library.  Fitchell has served on these  fronts too. As a mother, a teacher  and director, how does she find  Ihe time? With difficulty: "I  couldn't do bolh jobs full-lime,  plus have lime for my family,"  she says. "When I see a park  being developed lhal I've had a  hand in, it makes a difference.  Seeing results is what makes it  all worthwhile."  ���Tills is the last in a series of  articles written for Local Government Monlh.

THE  Recycler of  the month  Ben Gerwing from the Cafe  Pierrot has been recycling  kitchen waste for 10 of the  restaurant's 14-year existence.  Before the depots began operation he used to make special  trips to Vancouver to recycle his  particularly large numbers of  tins and bottles (he estimates  having saved 19 tons of waste  from the landfill over the years).  Ben wishes all the eating  establishments on the Coast  would recycle, because he realizes that restaurants are "major  contributors to the landfill."  SCRAPS is more than willing lo help anyone establish a  recycling routine for their home  or business, and we especially  invite existing as well as emerging. Businesses to follow Ben's  example of effort and commitment.  SCRAPS can be reached at  8X6-8870 or 885-8914.  halfmoon happenings  Ben Gerwing of Cafe Pierrot has been recycling for years, long before the Coast had its own depots.  He hopes other restaurants follow suit in recycling their own various waste products.  SCRAPS photo  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  It's always good to get home  after a trip overseas, even  though the visit to Scotland was  worthwhile.  The weather was particularly  cold with that chilling north  wind and even a blizzard on  arrival at Glasgow airport.  There were a few days without rain when one could appreciate how very bonny the country is in the spring.  It was lambing season and  great to see all the wee white  creatures jumping around with  the joy of being alive.  Spent a very happy week  with Ronnie Dunn who sends  love and regards to all her  friends on the Sunshine Coast.  Upon my return I was  delighted to find that our old  friend Mary Shannon is now in  Shorncliffe where she belongs. I  would like to say a special  thank you to all who supported  my efforts to rectify this terrible  situation of moving our old  folks away from home, especially Ihose who left such nice  messages on my answering  machine.  Time now to try to catch up  with what is going on locally.  Last Saturday the shuffleboard  group of Welcome Beach Community enjoyed a very pleasant  wind-up evening of dinner and  games.  Next Sunday, May 8, there  will be a Mother's Day Pancake  Breakfast at the hall from 8 am  to 11:30 am.  Members of the Welcome  Beach Association will cook up  a delicious breakfast, so be sure  to turn up lo give them the support they deserve in their efforts  to raise funds for the hall.  On Monday, May 9 the Halfmoon Bay branch of St. Mary's  Hospital Auxiliary will host  their annual Friendship Tea at  Welcome Beach hall from 2 to  4 pm.  The regular monthly meeting  of members will be at 12:30 pm  and the tables and food will be  all ready for you to enjoy from  2 pm onward.  Please come along and bring  a friend.  You will be sure of a warm  welcome while al the same time  have the chance to meet some of  our new neighbours who we  hope lo see there.

DREAM SHOPPE  3-5685 Cowrie St.    885-196S    by Frank Roosen, 883-2920  Lioness' Clothing Party will  be held Tuesday, May 3 at the  Lions Park hall. This will give  you some leisurely time to do  some shopping.  It is too bad lhat this event  will coincide with the GRIPS  meeting at 7 pm at the community hall at which time community input is being asked for  with regards to our solid waste  management, which by next  year will have to be reduced to  by 30 per cent and by the year  2000 lo 50 per cent.  It seems strange that some  bureaucrat in Victoria has the  power to set some rules but then  has no idea as to how it can be  done.  Perhaps we can follow the  European idea where they have  at each shopping area three  large plastic containers (nicely  painted): one for bottles, one for  paper, one for plastic.  The holes in them are only  about 10-12 inches wide. A  high-ab lifts them up, the bottom opens up into the dumper.  Works good there.  Congratulations to Louis  Monroe for winning the sheepskin slippers and thanks go to  Pam Patterson for donating that  prize.  Also thanks go to John Dafoe  for donating a mobile shed that  can be moved from one location  to the nexl.  Free kids' draw  This one was won by Krislen  Nelson at the PH Clinic.

The team ��� consisting of  four girls and Iwo boys from  both Chatelech Secondary and  West Sechelt Elementary School  ��� has just returned from the BC  provincial championships where  it placed first over approximately 120 competitors.  The students have now  earned the opportunity to take  part in the prestigious Odyssey  of ihe Mind world finals being  held this June at the Iowa State  University in Ames, Iowa.  At the World's, the team will  compete against more than  7,000 international studenls.  Members of this year's local  team include Ryley O'Byrne,  Becky Brotherston, Genevieve  Doyle, Alex Campbell, Cori  O'Brien and team captain Lee  Salter.  The students range in grades  from five to eight.  Team coach Sandy Campbell  described the Odyssey of the  Mind competition as a creative  problem-solving competition for  students, "with an athletic  games spirit." It is based on the  ^*u^^Saa______t"' ; ���������        "flBj!  _________}  ftt^HMfl         m[- r.-'!$M__ti^&  ____m*^&??:��- ^  ___1rtW&*iei.- -���-...

Front to back are  Ryley O'Byrne, Becky Brotherston, Genevieve Doyle, Lee Salter and Alex Campbell. (Not shown is  Cori O'Brien). Joel Johnstone pholo  belief that the mind, like the  body, can be trained through  practice.  "From OM, students learn  that teamwork is essential, creativity is developmental, that  risk-taking is valued and that it  is a worthwhile endeavor to  strive for excellence."  As part of the competition,  the students are tested on series  of creative and skilled projects,  including writing and performing a play, answering questions  and engineering a functional  wood structure.  In the latter category, this  year's team has chosen to construct a balsa wood-and-glue  structure designed to allow a  ping-pong ball to be placed  inside of it.  The structure will be tested  by balancing and supporting as  much weighl as possible while  protecting the ping-pong ball  and releasing il when the structure breaks. There is an eight-  minute time limit on its construction; materials used to solve  the problem musl not exceed  $50 U.S.  OM team members possess variety of talents  It means coming in after  school, working hard...and even  fundraising in their spare time.  So why do the six members of  the West Sechelt  Elementary/Chatelech Secondary  Odyssey of the. Mind team do  whal they do?  Because it's fun, of course.  To successfully compete in  the Odyssey of the Mind competition, each member has brought  wilh him or her a special talent to  the team. Ryley O'Byrne, a grade  5 student who's the youngest of  the group, has composed a song  which she sings during the competition.  Becky Brotherston, in grade  7, makes up part of the creative.  element; she's co-written a play  in which she also acts.  Team mate Genevieve Doyle,  grade 8, is part of the "spontaneous answer team"; she has to  think up clever answers to spon  taneous questions posed by competition judges. "And she's pretty  good at il too," says Brotherston.  Meanwhile, team captain Lee  Salter, grade 8, says his talents  are in "keeping people happy...  a,nd I'm Jjretty good at Ihe spontaneous thing too."  His teammates agree he's  funny, adding Salter is "good at,.  thinking of things in a different  way than anyone else."  Grade 7 student Alex Camp-  Members of Coast Interact interact in Victoria  Eight Chatelech Interact  members and two Elphinstone  Interact members went together  on a two-day trip to Victoria on  the weekend of April 23. There  they took part in a district-wide  Rotary conference to inform  other Rotary Clubs from the  Lower Mainland, and parts of  Washington state, what Interact  is all about.  Of many Rotary Clubs in districts 5040 and 5050, only three  clubs presently have Interact  expansions, these being Gibsons, Sechelt and Ihe most  recently formed Powell River  Club.  Members of the group sel up  a display of this year's events  and activities and were available  to answer any questions from  Roiarians interested in Interact  for their communities. Photos of  events such as gardening for the  new park at the Seniors' Center  and of the Easter activities at the  Trail Bay Mall for children were  displayed.  The Roiarians also found it  interesting that exchange students, hosted by their clubs,  could then attend Interact meetings in lhal area and meel wilh  youth their own age. Oscar  Vega, an exchange student from  Mexico this year, is able to take  part in the Chatelech Interact  Club activities.  Sechelt Rotary and Interact  Clubs are also sending out a student from Chatelech to Brazil  later this year. Brittany Clark  will be leaving in August for a  one-year exchange.  After an educational tour of  the Parliament Buildings from  local MLA Gordon Wilson,  Tanya Hall delivered an impressive speech at the Victoria Con  ference Center. Her informative  speech, with appropriate comic  relief, proved to be one of the  more entertaining speeches of  Ihe conference. Her portrayal of  the Interact Club sparked much  interest for other Rotary Clubs  and the Interact display was one  of Ihe busiest there.  During her speech, Tanya  made a quick mention of the  three-day camp the Chatelech  Interact Club is planning for  May, and many Roiarians left  addresses and received further  information from the display  about how io get involved.  On May 20-22 al the Salvation Army Camp in Langdale,  the Interact group is planning to  bring together Interact, Roteract  and any exchange or multicultural students. They will lake  part in learning about the  Sechelt Native culture as well as  sharing their cultures with Ihe  camp through international  meals and activities. Schools  and Rotary Clubs from the  Lower Mainland have been  invited and positions are filling  up fast.  The Interact Club would like  to thank the Sechelt Rotary Club  for sponsoring their trip to Victoria this past weekend. Norm  Blaire chaperoned the group of  students and his efforts were  much appreciated.  ^Kb^incjS  onq  Corrine Hunt  Kwakiutl Artist  Specializing in  Silver & Gold jezvelry  569r> COWRIF 51.

Giant  acorn barnacles enjoy the swift  currents��� normally they grow  on exposed shorelines like Vancouver Island's westcoasl.  Skookumchuk Provincial  Park can be reached by a pleasant hiking trail from Egmont.  Tide tables published in this  paper will help you plan your  visit.  Look for a fall of 12 feet or  more for a really good display.  A flood tide is also spectacular,  but my favourite is a good ebb  seen from Roland Point.  Pack your lunch and start a  good couple of hours before  slack (by the Poinl Atkinson  tide tables).  When you arrive, Ihe tide  will still be ripping through the  narrows.  There's so much water trying  to get Ihrough that the flow persists about an hour afler Ihe tide  turns elsewhere. Some oldtimers  go al slack tide, then watch Ihe  current build to full force.  The island in the cenlre of  the rapids is called Tremble  Island and those who have  watched a big tide from there  know why.  At full bore, while Ihe tide's  thunder fills the air, one can feel  ils vibration Ihrough the solid  rock. Awesome.  ce  ytrtvti*1��  % 25 IT*"  ?  In the long line of Gibsons community  theatre groups, the  Driftwood Players  probably holds the  record for the  longest living. It  was in the Fall of  1969 that a small  group of people  met at the-home of  Eileen Glassford on  Marine Drive to  discuss their  mutual interest in  theatre. Since that  time the Driftwood Players has provided  the community with a broad variety of  entertainment. Along the way there have  been several awards at provincial  festivals.  Driftwood Players' longevity is even  more remarkable when you consider that  they have never had a permanent  "home". At some time or other, over the  years, productions have taken place at  local schools, church halls, community  halls, Elphinstone Pioneer Museum and  the developing Gibsons Community  Cultural Centre.  This season marks the silver  anniversary of the  Driftwood Players.  We would like you  to be a part of this  milestone, You can  help by becoming a  member and/or  making a donation  to the organization  by calling Jim ' l"te'  O'Brien at 885-  3321.  ^^^___   From the first  production, Pinter's "The Lover", through  evenings of one-act plays, musical  reviews, English  farces, vaudeville,  comedies, Summer  Play Parades,  dramas, plays with a  social message and  plays that tugged at,  the heart strings,  Driftwood continues  in the tradition of  quality entertainment  with its latest  offering, Dario Fo's  "We Won't Pay, We Won't Pay".  Although classified as a political farce,  this current project also has its share of  humorous confrontations. The play is set  in Milan, Italy, and focuses on the lives  of two working class families who decide  to fight the system with civil  disobedience.  "It's about people like you and me  getting led-up with'soeiety and taking the n  law into their own hands, not being quite ''  sure if they are doing the right thing," said  director Nest Lewis.  The play will be performed May 27-28  and June 2-4 at the Roberts Creek Hall.  Admission is $10.00  and tickets can be  purchased in  Gibsons at Coast  Books and  Sayward Books, in  Sechelt at Shadow  Baux Galleries, at  the Roberts Creek  General Store,  and at the Wilson  Creek Gallery as  well as at the door.  inav i  .'I -id! i  Tlw following businesses corigratidate the Dnftwood  Players on ihe event of their silver anniversary:  SOPROVICH  & COMPANY  A member of the  Certified General Accountant  Association of B.C.

Program coordinator Don  Seykens said arrangements have  been made for teens 13-18 years  old to practice and play darts at  the Royal Canadian Legion,  Branch 140 in Sechelt on Friday  evenings between 7:30 pm and  10 pm. The firsl bull's-eye will  be scored beginning May 6.  "I started with six guys and  I've had 32 names on the list for  Gibsons only," said Seykens.  "I'm starting Sechelt out with six  guys and the players from Gibsons all want to come out to  Sechelt for Friday night, too."  The program has experienced  significant success since it began  in February and preparations are  already being made for the annual BC Provincial Play-downs,  slated for March 1995 in Vernon.  Organizers are hoping to have  enough funding in place to send  the top eight throwers of the  Sechelt team to join eight mem-  bets of the Gibsons squad.  Qualifying tournaments are  tentatively set for Gibsons in  June and next January and  Sechelt this October and next  February. Players entered in the  tournaments will receive points  for their participation and the top  players will go on to Vernon.  The Sunshine Coast will host  ��� the 1997 provincial play-downs.  Seykens is considering con  tinuing the program through until  November, followed by a one  month break before restarting in  mid-January 1995. "I will take a  of the kids if Ihey want to  continue in July and August,  because of the holidays," he said.  Seykens said interest in the  program continues to increase,  with about 18 players coming out  for regular Wednesday-night sessions at the Royal Canadian  Legion in Gibsons.  "It's one way of keeping them  out of trouble," he said.

Held in Vancouver at  Oakridge Shopping Mall on Sunday, April 24, the championships  included competitors from Cub  packs throughout the Lower  Mainland, the Sunshine Coasl  and Vancouver Island. "Justin  was the hero of the cub meeting  last night (Monday, April 25),"  Pender Harbour Cub Akela Tom  Dodge said. "Everyone was really pleased and proud." Dodge  said that McCrone's prize for  placing third was atrophy and "a  smile about THIS big."

Canadians produce more  waste per person than any other  nation in the world. The national  average is 2.2 kilos of waste per  person per day, which rises to  2.4 kilos in BC. The cost of disposing of all Ihis waste is  incredible. Last year il cosl  $279,407 for collection of  garbage on the Sunshine Coast.  In the future this cost i.s expected lo rise.  However, our regional district has received notice from  the BC government lhat we  must reduce our solid waste by  50 per cent by Ihe year 2000. In  addition there must be a 30 per  cent reduction by 1995. That's  only nine months away. So our  regional district, along with all  the other regions in BC, has  embarked upon the solid waste  planning process.  For several months representatives from local disposal companies, recycling groups and  local industry, labour and institutions have been meeting with  government officials to discuss  solid waste. The result is a draft  report which outlines our existing solid waste system and suggests ways lo improve it.  Public input is now needed to  upgrade our system so that we  can meet the provincial guidelines. It's time to discuss and  agree on what options are best  suited to our community. As  taxpayers we want a system that  is efficient and cost effective.  Reducing waste will save us  money, as taxpayers on a large  scale, by extending the life of  our landfill sites and as householders, who will need to buy  fewer garbage bags and take  fewer trips to the dump.  As a recycler I support the  move to reduce garbage. But  recycling alone isn't enough to  cut waste in half. The so-called  three Rs of solid waste are  Reduce, Reuse and Recycle and  it's time to explore ways lo  reduce and reuse whal can'I be  recycled.  Junk mail and over-packaged  products are two examples of  things we can refuse lo buy or  accept in our homes, thus  reducing our garbage. We can  reuse items such as clothing,  toys and furniture by shopping  at thrift stores and garage sales.  In many BC communities share  sheds have been built al the  dumps to facilitate reuse of  these household items. We may  eventually see share sheds at our  local landfill sites if local residents agree that "one man's  garbage is another man's treasure."  Composting is a way lo create a useful product oul of  kitchen waste. Residents will he  encouraged to compost al home  and a central composting program will be investigated.  Problem items such as lish  morts, gypsum wallboard and  hazardous items such as used oil  and batteries will also be discussed. If you have any suggestions as to how these special  items could be handled we'd  like to hear from you.  Everyone, is invited lo Ihe  public information meetings to  be held Tuesday, April 26 at Ihe  Marine Room in Gibsons,  Wednesday April 27 at the  Seniors Hall in Sechelt and  Tuesday, May 3 al the Madeira  Park Community Hall.

The 15 per cent natural slides  were minor compared to the  logging and road building related slides.  ��� The cost...for safe waler  will continually increase to  accommodate logging in the  watersheds.  ��� And now mining wants in  too.  No mention was made of Ihe  sludy on which these statements  were based or what mining was  planned.  The name of the committee  or group responsible for the  publication of the petition was  not given, nor was a telephone  number available to those who  might question the validity of  the whole thing.  An interesting comparison  can be made between the above  and the results of the detailed  study prepared in 1991 by Economic and Engineering Services  Inc. in cooperation with Terra-  sol, UBC Forestry Department,  Jensen Consulting, Environment  Consultants Ltd., BC Forest  Service and the Canadian  Wildlife Service for the Greater  Vancouver Water District.  In Vancouver's three watersheds ihere have been 319 slides  since 1964. Of these, eight have  been the result of road-building,  11 the result of harvesting.

His letter does not say anything his dissenting report did  not cover, but he has forced me,  by escalating his arguments into  one of our community newspapers, to reply in the same forum.  I don'l do so gladly.  To quote from Bill's letter:  "It was this writer's contention  that from my first joining the  ranks of the old growth subcommittee some year-and-a-half ago  that meaningful discussion of  multiple use and visions of consensus-building would be the  final goals of our group..." This  statement probably sounds reasonable to the general public  and to many of those in the forest industry, including Bill himself, but it reveals a serious  problem.  The responsibility of the old  growth subcommittee, on which  Bill sat and which I chaired, was  to determine the values of old  growth present in Ihe study area,  what impact proposed forms of  human activity would have on  these values and report our findings to the main LRUP core  committee.  It was not, as Bill asserts, to  have a "meaningful discussion  of multiple use."  In the final analysis, the old  growth subcommittee did what  it could to determine if, based  on current knowledge, harvesting could be accommodated in  the study area without compromising old growth values, not  how to include harvesting in a  multiple-use plan that would  satisfy the parties at the table.  This sentence of Bill's indicates that he did not approach  the table with the open mind  required for consensus-building.  Based on his own words, it  seems apparent that Bill was  never open to the possibility that  the study area might warrant  total preservation. Yet by claiming that the three of us comprising the majority of the subcommittee "came to the table with  the selfish thought of total  preservation at any cost," he  acknowledges the fallacy of  entering into consensus-building  processes with preconceived  West Howe Sound Recreation Facilities Commission  Wednesday, May 4th at 7:30 p.m. at Chaster House  Public Utilities Committee  Thursday, May 5th at 2:00 p.m.  Building Committee  Thursday, May 12th at 2:30 p.m.  Regular Board  Thursday, May 12th at 7:30 p.m.  PENDER HARBOUR AQUATIC & FITNESS CENTRE ��� 883-2612  Mother's Day Triathlon - Sunday, May 8,1994 from 9 a.m. to  12 noon.

The study states that a network of properly designed roads  is vital in maintaining access for  fire and insect control as well as  for the harvest of over-mature or  diseased forest stands. In all the  watersheds the impaci of road  building and logging is negligible.  It further notes "not one significant road failure occurred  during the record storms of  1990-1991" and concludes "the  data indicates the GVRD road  construction has no identifiable  correlation to turbidity at the  water intake."  The study also has interesting  facts on harvesting, lightning,  fire hazard, insect infestation  and the advantages of a closed  and controlled watershed, to  name only a few.  The group responsible for the  circulation of the recent petition  would profit from its reading.  JAMES R. THOMSON  Gibsons  Retort: Tet again  Re: the letter to the editor  published in the April 18 issue  of the Coast News from Bill  Lasuta in response to a March  31 article entitled Ban All Tet  Logging, urges Old Growth  Subcommittee. This is not the  firsl time Bill has criticized the  Tetrahedron LRUP's old growth  subcommittee process.  Anyone who has read the  reports, dissenting reports and  responses to dissenting reports  generated by most of the subcommittees of the Tetrahedron  LRUP will have recognized lhat  Bill Lasuta has once again  resorted to emotional rhetoric  an* character defamation,  together with the lack of any  specific discussion on old  growth issues, in order lo discredit the conclusions and recommendations  of  Ihe  Old  rage. Whatever the reasoning  for this leap in logic, I have  trouble in understanding it.  As for the claim that the  other three members came lo the  table with a preconceived and  unyielding agenda to ban all  logging, I deny this in addition  to the implication that we don't  care about the social impacts  that result from withdrawal of  the Tetrahedron's old growth  forest from future harvesting  plans.  For those who want to know  more about the status of our  area's old growth forest and  other Tetrahedron LRUP issues,  reporl copies are available from  our local Ministry of Forests  office.  By the way, Bill, speaking of  crucial flaws contained in Ihe  article on the old growth report,  you missed a very important  factual one.  Our report did not call "for  an end to logging...in the entire  Chapman Creek/Gray Creek  watershed," but only in the relatively small Tetrahedron study  area.  In conclusion, let me say that  I agree with Bill that the foresl  industry is working from its side  to improve how it deals with our  forests.  I find the simplistic viewpoint held by many in the public  and in the media which casts  environmentalists as the good  guys and those in the forest  industry as the bad guys  deplorable, misleading and  counter-productive.  We have to find out how to  ensure the health of our forest  biodiversity, while al the same  time continuing to harvest ils  valuable limber resources.  Warring among ourselves is  only delaying the day when  everyone can relax and trust that  we are working towards the  same social and environmental  ends.

Zn"Z0773  Gibsons library planning to computerize  The Gibsons and District  Public Library may be entering  the era of computers in the near  future.  "We're in the preliminary  stages of planning for an automated system," said library  board vice chair John Young.  "As library circulation and  memberships increase, our manual card system is becoming less  and less efficient and more and  more time-consuming for staff  to manage."  With circulation up 15 per  cent in the first quarter of 1994,  the library is busier than ever,  which translates into more  records to create and file.  "Just the process of filing  alone takes up several hours of  time every day when you consider all the records we keep,  including membership cards,  book cards and catalogue  cards," said librarian Myrna  Short.  "Fortunately the library  enlists the services of over 20  dedicated volunteers who do  most of the filing, a tedious task  that nonetheless must be done  accurately."  An automated circulation  system would greatly reduce not  only the time spent filing but  also the stress on staff and  library users that results from  errors and inefficiencies in a  manual system, Short said.  The new computerized system will consist of five or more  microcomputers connected on a  local area network. The first  phase of the automation project  will be to transfer all the data  that is presently on 8.5- by 13.5-  centimetre cards into electronic  form.  "This is no small task when  you consider that the library  currently holds about 20,000  titles and has 2,000 active members," Short said.  Once the first phase is completed, the library will be in a  position to automate its book  check-in and check-out procedures. Every book, magazine  and video in the library will  have a bar code label attached to  it.  A bar code scanner at the circulation desk will be used to  match the bar code on each  book wilh a bar code on a  library user's card when a book  is checked out.  As well, the computer will  automatically print out overdue  notices and mailing labels, calculate overdue fines and notify  Gibsons library workers on the Job. Computerizing the operation  could cul down on the necessity for this kind of manual clerical  work. Pholo submitted  VINYL SIDING  Aluminum Soffits. Patio Covers i Railings  Vinyl Sundeck Flooring.

The final phase of automation will be to introduce computer terminals for public access  to replace the card catalogue.  "Computers allow for greater  flexibility when it comes to  searching for information  because they allow for keyword  searching of titles and subjects,"  said Short.  "With a card catalogue a person is restricted to searching for  the first word in a title, but with  a computer a person can search  for any word in the title."  Unfortunately, the new system won't be in place when the  new library opens in 1995.  "We have to do one thing at a  time," Short said.  "First we move into the new  building and get settled and then  we can begin Ihe first phase of  the automation project.  "And it could take two or  three years before we have the  public access terminals in  place."  LJ.LJ  10 Exciting Sale n^t
