That is the prediction of  retired World War II veteran  Ken Short, organizer of Ihe  Canadian Naval Veterans Association Western Branch convention that's scheduled for Sept. 9-  11 in Sechelt.  With more than 200 delegates  expected to attend, the convention will be the single largest  event of its kind on the Coast.  "I'd say it would be the  largest gathering in Sechelt, and  I'd like lo include the Sunshine  Coast," Short said. "We are a little nervous about how we are  going to handle all these people;  we are kind of limited here."  To date, the Sunshine Coast  Branch of the association has  booked roughly 200 rooms from  Davis Bay lo Sechelt for members and their wives. If that is  nol enough, delegates will be  shuttled to various meetings and  events in Sechelt from Gibsons  motels.  Members of some 23 branches of the association will take  part in activities ranging from a  pub night at the Royal Canadian  Legion, a fishing tour at  Skookumchuk and a parade to  the Cenotaph in Sechell.  The Sunshine Coast Branch  will send roughly 40 of its own  members to the convention.  "We are quite excited about  this. We think we can put on a  pretty good show for them,"  Short said.  News of the Branch's deci-,  sion to host the convention was  eagerly greeted by the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce.  "As far as I'm concerned, I'm  delighted that a convention of  this magnitude is coming to the  I  i/   V.��tf  \ m \. t  .v*-**W  ~-��<v^  -mm*  ��t��T 'VJ3 '  The HMCS Ottawa H60, sunk I  September.  coast," said Chamber president  Gordon L..Wilsoiy"We ait.  going to do everything in our  power to help them out and  accommodate them."

Similar gatherings have been  held in Calgary, Niagara Falls  and Kelowna. The Sunshine  Coast Branch is one of 40 individual branches located across  Canada.  It was organized four years  ago to assist Ihe Naval Sea  Cadets and raise funds for the  Seamen's Institution in Vancouver. Members ate traditionally  recognized for their eemributi���  to the Second World War, the  Korean War, Vietnam and volunteer reserves.  Please see Ken Short profile oa  pat*10  Second artificial reef planned for Sunshine Coast  by Don Anderson  The HMCS Chaudiere will soon have  an underwater counterpart.  The Artificial Reef Society of B.C. is  investigating locations off the Sunshine  Coast, particularly around Thormanby  Island, for the possible sinking of another  vessel for use as an artificial reef and diving park.  "Basically, whal we are doing is taking  a look at a number of sites," said Jay  Straiih, president of the sociely responsible  for the sinking of Ihe Chaudiere.  "The other weekend we were looking  around Thormanby (Island)."  Ever since the Chaudiere made ils  descent into Ihe waters of Kunechin Bay,  the society has been looking for additional  sites. Straiih said the society had already  investigated areas north and south of  Egerton and Fraser Rocks, and have scheduled sites near Pender Harbor for similar  investigation.  "Essentially we don't want to put  another one on the Inlet side. You'd be  wanting it outside of there," he said. "We  have people as far north as Powell River  and Lund saying they would like an artificial reef put in the area and we're working  our way Ihrough lhat."  Straiih believes a second artificial reef  would bring further economic benefits lo  the community. But before those benefits  are warranted, the society must consider  the impact of the artificial reef on populated areas, the routes taken by commercial  ships, temporary anchorages and sea life.  A "classic" artificial reef consists of a  sand, mud, and shale bottom with very little marine life, he added. The size and type  of ship that is inevitably sunk will depend  on the site. One of the ships the society is  reviewing is the 200-foot Sea Shepherd.  "What we are trying to do is find a  good location far it and consult with the  people. If the people don't want it, it won't  go there," Straiih said.  He doesn't expect the next sinking to  yield as much controversy as the sinking  of the Chaudiere. Much of the controversy  was spawned by the Sechelt Indian Band's  fight to stop the sinking through a court  injunction. However, the BC Supreme  Court rejected the application on Dec. 4,  1992, one day before the ship was sunk.  "They sued the province, Ihe federal  government and us, seeking the declaration that they had underwater land rights  and then they dropped the lawsuit," Straiih  said."We understand their feelings about  the Inlet, so we're staying away from  there."  The society would like to take proposals to the public for consultation and  review by late spring or early summer.  Garry Feschuk, chief of the Sechelt  Indian Band, was unavailable for comment  at presstime.  Wilson and BC Liberal Party  banter over monies owed  by Darah Hansen  The battle is long over but  bad blood continues to flow  between Powell River-Sunshine  Coasl MLA Gordon Wilson and  his former political parly, the  BC Liberals.  In an interview Thursday,  Wilson criticized the Liberal  parly for leaking information  that he owed the Liberal riding  association $658.  That information was  obtained after a letter addressed  to Wilson from riding association president Pauline Galinski  was given by someone within  party headquarters to ihe media,  Wilson said.  By allowing his debt to be  published, Wilson said, "It's jusl  an on-going campaign by members of Ihe Liberal party to try  and...discredit me."  Wilson called the move  "enormously petty."  According to Wilson, the  Liberal riding association loaned  him Ihe money days prior to the  September Liberal leadership  convention in which he lost his  Liberal leadership lo rival Gordon Campbell.  Wilson has since gone on lo  form his own party, Ihe Progressive Democratic Alliance, and  the Liberal riding association  wants ihe $638 returned.  '/ don't know where  Mr. Wilson is getting  bis figures from'  -Rem! Musi  "It's no big deal," said Wilson, adding he will repay the  debt.  What is a "big deal" is Ihe  $111,000 Wilson says is owed  to him by the Liberal party.  In Thursday's interview, Wilson said he has retained a lawyer  and is prepared to go to court to  retrieve funds he says the party  still owes him.  He said Ihe debl dates back to  a lime before the last election  when the B.C. Liberals were a  relatively obscure party.  As leader, Wilson said he  look a reduced instructional load  at his Capilano College job lo  make time for politics. The  understanding was thai the party  would make up the difference in  income to the tune of $2,000 a  month.  As well, Wilson said expenses such as gas, air travel and  phone bills dealing with party  business came out of his own  pocket.  Wilson's accountant says that  adds up to $111,000 the Liberals  owe their former leader.  "Hopefully if Ihe Liberals  will agree lo meel lo try and settle this out of court, we will. If  they won't, we'll let ihe courts  settle it."  Remi Masi, president of the  provincial Liberals said Thursday he has no comment regarding any possible lawsuit. "I  don't know where Mr. Wilson is  gelling his figures from."  The Liberals say they owe  Wilson only $9,000.

"Pretty boy."  Tempers were flaring at the Tetrahedron  Local Resource Use Plan meeting at the Sunshine Coast Forest District office on Field  Road Feb. 10, as core committee and subcommittee members discussed the recently  tabled water sub-committee report.  Water sub-committee chair Chuck Weatherill staunchly defended his committee's  report, which recommends an end lo logging  in the Tetrahedron area east of Gibsons and  Sechelt, which cites already occuring problems and the potential of increased dangers to  the main supply of water on the Sunshine  Coast.  International Foresl Products Ltd. area  manager Mike Bell commended the sub-com-  miitee for "the sincerity with which they  approached the issue."  However, Bell said he was concerned about  the report because its recommendations  included an end to logging in the entire Chapman and Gray Creek Watershed, and not just  in the upper Tetrahedron, from which the two  creeks flow. "They have taken the issue of  water and the value to the community to heart,  but it doesn't respect other values," Bell said.  Core committee member and representative  for the Sechelt Rod and Gun Club Harry  Almond submitted a written reply to Ihe  report. The report, Almond wrote, "is somewhat flawed. "The over-emphasis and repeti  tion of statements of a political nature which  would be more appropriately addressed in a  political arena or in a court of law, together  with some incorrect technical facts, detracts  the value of the report, which could have been  of much importance in developing an LRUP."  A debate raged about the lack of scientific  knowledge regarding the impact of logging on  a watershed.  Core committee member Barry Janyk said,  "It's a good document as far as kicking hell  out of government agencies but it is too simplistic. Maybe that's what it will take, but..."  Weatherill and sub-committee member  Linda Williams explained that lack of scientific study of the issue is the main reason why  logging should be halted in the area.  On three occasions, Weatherill asked the  group, "Do you want to play Russian Roulette  with the drinking water? That's what it all  comes down to."  Core committee member and representative  for Independent Foresl Products Tom Jackson  said he and his interest group were "disappointed with the majority of the information  within the report.  "Had the mandate of the sub-committee  been to examine past practices and management, we would have, from an academic perspective, assigned an 'A.' As it is, we found  very little information of use other than several small sections on SCRD (Sunshine Coast  Regional District) problems with water qualily  and distribution."  Jackson also slammed the report for possibly being a catalyst to delay the LRUP process. "This paper could very well set the  Tetrahedron process back months by bringing  up old issues that have already been discussed  and debated at great length by the core committee in its first two years."  In his conclusions Jackson said "We hope  that the majority of participants in this committee will side step this political pitfall and  look ahead to the completion of this process."  Tetrahedron Alliance and core committee  member Dan Bouman said he thought the  reporl was "well worth waiting for," and  defended the report for its strong attacks on  the provincial government.  "The management under the Ministry of  Forests has been a failure," he stated.  International Woodworkers Association  (Local 171) president Murray Cantelon said if  there was proof thai Ihe watershed was being  harmed by logging, he would be for the halting of it in the area but "there's no proof of  that." The lack of proper management in the  watershed, by any level of government, was  attacked from all sides.  SCRD director Brett McGillivray defended  the SCRD's role in the area.  "Management is key," he said, alluding to  Ihe need for the SCRD lo have more of a say  about what goes on in the area.  In addition, McGillivray said, "1 think I can  safely say the regional board would be for  what the report stales."  police notes  A Madeira Park man will stand trial for two sexual crimes stemming  from an incident that occurred roughly 19 years ago.  Stephen Fulton Prest, 38, will answer to charges of sexual assault  and sexual intercourse with a female under the age of 16 in Sechelt  Provincial Court Feb. IS. Prest is also charged with one count of gross  indecency.  The charges stem from a 1975 incident at Madeira Park. Prest was  charged Feb. 2.  Information sought  Police are continuing to ask for information related to an incident  reported Jan. 25 involving an eight-year-old girl heading home from  school in Hallmoon Bay.  The girl was allegedly approached by a 40-year-old man who  requested she get into his beige pickup truck. Sensing danger, the girl  ran away. The incident wasn't reported to police until three days after it  occurred.  ^^^^^^^^5  ^Jfteakfaa  ePa  I   IBrerfcu  How about February 15 (1994)  for Gibsons pool re-opening?

Mayor's  Hotline  885-5360  by Ian Cobb  Their fingers must be getting  quite sore.  Officials dealing with the reopening of the Gibsons Pool  ' said in November 1993 Ihey  hoped the pool, closed since  June 1992, would re-open Jan.  15.  Their fingers were crossed,  they said.  Then, in December the date  had moved to a hoped re-opening for Jan. 31 and fingers were  still crossed.  It is now February and the  pool is still closed to the public  as renovations and repairs to the  pool, totalled at $853,000, continue to creep along. The  crossed fingers may be in danger of calcification.  "We're still doing finishing  (work)," said aquatic manager  Wendy Gilbertson Feb. 2, when  asked how work was progressing at the Sunshine Coast Highway facility.  "Hopefully we'll fill it (pool)  next week," she said.  And just filling the pool  doesn't mean it can be immedi-  sectiett council notes  Wendy Gilbertson  ately opened. After it is filled  and the facility is as ready as  pool officials believe they can  make it, a provincial health  inspector must check it all oul.  "1 have to have the health  inspector from Vancouver  Island come over and approve  that it has been built as  planned," Gilbertson said. However, she noted that the inspector must come from the Island  and if he or she doesn't make il  "for whatever reason" on the  alotted day, the re-opening of  the facility could receive yet  another setback.  lo addition, once this inspector has finished his/her report,  the Coast-Garibaldi Heallh Unit  must also provide its approval  and engineers and anyone else  involved in the re-hab work  must add their okay.  So, with all of that still  ahead, when is the long-closed  facility going to be open for  public use?  "I'm hoping for around  Feb.IS, permit pending,"  Gilbertson said.  In addition, the aquatic manager said she cannot take any  swimming lesson registrations  until she has her operating permit.  "I have to wait until I have  my permits before 1 can take  people's money," she said.  Gilbertson suggested that  anyone interested in enrolling  themselves or their children in  swimming lessons contact the  pool (886-9415) after Feb. 10 to  find out when they might be taking registrations.  The planning and building  department will undertake a  review of the sprinkler bylaw  adopted last year.  It seems Ihere are concerns  about future building permit  applications and whether the  bylaw would apply lo those  applications.

Up with donations  Council has recommended  Centra Gas donate funds from  the upcoming concert by Up  With People to (he Victim Witness Assistance Program. The  recommendation didn't pass  without considerable discussion,  however.  Councillor Duncan Fraser  expressed reservations about  forwarding the proceeds to one  group, preferring to divide it up  among several other organizations.  Fraser recommended council  review the proposal, but later  changed his mind when municipal clerk Michael Vaughan indicated that council had until Feb.  4 to make a decision where the  money should go.  As a result, the Victim Witness Assistance Program could  stand to receive up to $5,000  from Centra Gas later this year.  tmjt Coast News, February 7, 1994  news  A sample of some of the 'peeler wood' bucked up into firewood at the Gibsons gravel pit last week.  Ian Cobb pholo  Forestry officials seize illegally cut trees  by Ian Cobb  Somebody goofed.  The Sunshine Coast Forest  District (SCFD) seized about  $800 in felled fir from the Town  of Gibsons Feb. 2 after town  employees knocked down four  trees lo use in the constniclion of  a suspended frame for a piece of  equipment.  The wood that wasn't used for  the frame was bucked up into  firewood and piled in the gravel  pit lot the town leases from  Crown Lands.  Town administrator Dan Legg  admitted that town employees cut  the trees.  "ll was a rather innocent mis-  lake on our part," he said.  "Our workers assumed il  would be okay to take those  trees. Forestry has told us we  should not have taken Ihe trees  without their permission."  While the town has a licence  to remove gravel from crown  lands at the Henry Road location,  il doesn't have the licence to  remove trees for any reason.  '"We'tefaftall the HghtSit6 the  lieiK' said SCFD resourcfcWs-  jtan'^ Mik'e Whitehouse.'^They  (Gibsons) seem lo have been bf  the opinion Ihey had the entitlement."  Any tree removal has to be  done with the permission of the  Ministry of Forests, he said.  Even though forestry confiscated the trees, no plans are in the  offing to fine the town for its  mistake. Forestry employee Jim  Kellett said il isn't known at this  time whal will happen to the  seized wood, measured at six  cubic metres and valued, "if it  was peeler grade, up to $200 (a  tree)."  Kellett said if it was a large  quantity of wood it would likely  be sold on the open market but  because it's only  six cubic metres (or        two cords bucked  up), a decision has  yet to be made.  One way of getting rid of the wood  in the pasl, he said,  has been lo sell it at  a blind auction for  charity. "        "~"  Meanwhile, the  same site is known to have about  60 cubic metres of blowdown  wood, worth about $3,000, and a  local small logging contractor  wants it. However, he feels as  though he is being snubbed by  forestry.  Blowdown refers to trees,  usually healthy and usually situated on the rim of a clearing or  ���loggedTout area, that'have been  . Mown oyer. Typically, they are  recognised by the large clumps  " or dift still clinging t<f Ihe shallow roots now exposed to the air.  After hearing about the blow-  down trees in and near the town  lot, Lloyd McKort of Gibsons  investigated the site hoping to  secure the rights to removing the  downed fir.  The $3,000 in wood (two logging truck loads) would be a  good project for a small operator,  There's no way  this should be  bucked up  forflrewood  ���Uoyd McKort  said McKort, who was also  peeved at the sight of good limber bucked up for firewood.  "That's $200-a-metre peeler  wood," McKort said of the firewood.  "There's no way this should  be bucked up for firewood," he  said, looking down        at the piles.  As for the blow-  down that can just  be seen on the edge  of the clearing and  farther into the  woods, McKort  said he's angered  about not being  -"���""��� allowed to bid on  the removal of it.  "This wasn't put up for tender," he said. "I could come in  here with a little Cat and cut it  out in a week." Because the 60  cubic meters of wood would be  valued at around of $3,000,  Forestry (government) would  reap about $300 ��� the standard  10-per-cent deposit contractors  must pay for wood licences.  'This here is prime second-  growth fir. It's hydro poles, that's  what this is," he said, wondering  aloud why forestry wouldn't  allow him onto the site.  Giving out a licence to the site  isn't as easy as it sounds, White-  house said. "There are trees here  and trees there, and there are  access concerns down there  because we have to go through  town leased land."  In addition, Whitehouse said  Forestry has to assess it to see if  it is feasible to remove for the  small volume of wood that is  there. That, McKort said, isn't  the only location where "good  peeler wood" is being bucked up  by firewood hunters.  He cited a couple of other  locations where valuable blow-  down timber was being cut outside Roberts Creek and wondered  about the government's commitment to small loggers.  After being told by an SCFD  employee that they're more concerned about "20,000 cubic  metres of standing" timber being  eyed by the larger forest operations, he asked, "Is standing timber more important than blow-  down?"  Meanwhile, Whitehouse said  there is no favoritism and that all  a contractor has to do is apply at  the SCFD office on Field Road.  "We go out and assess it and  advertise it and put it on the open  market" if it is feasible to log,  Whitehouse said.  "But, we can also go to a  direct tale at times when access  ���Htslo be gained through private  pwpeity." THese "exceptions"  are something forestry tries to  avoid, he said.  "We don't like to use them at  all. To get fair market value, we  like to make tender bidding open  to everybody that is eligible."  Meanwhile, McKort is still  looking for work and can't  understand why he can't find any  when there is so much blowdown  in the district that a small logger  could handle.  Society searching for recreation centre site  by Don Anderson  A non-profit society has taken  up the torch for the development  of a multi-use recreational centre  in Sechelt.  The Sunshine Coast Recreation Complex Society, recently  certified by the provincial government as a non-profit organization, is seeking to build a $25-  $30-million-dollar facility on its  own with public funding and  government grants.  "Our goal is to establish a  recreation complex on the Sunshine Coast for Ihe benefit of all  citizens," said Ann Hayward,  president of the organization.  The society is seeking further  assistance from the Sechelt Indian Band, the regional district and  local governments of Sechelt and  Gibsons. It also intends to apply  lo Ottawa for charitable status, in  Ihe hope of securing grants to  offset fundraising through taxation. Further costs may be offset  by grants from BC 21, which has  a grant ceiling of $1 million.  "Ideally we would like regional support of this," Hayward said  prior to the society's meeting  Sunday (Feb. 6) at the Sunshine  Coasl Arena. "As much as possible would be done through grants  and funding."  The Sechelt Indian Band has  agreed to lend its support to the  society by offering a tract of land  behind the hospital near Ted  Dixon Park for lease.  Hayward has eagerly welcomed Ihe idea. "The price is  right and the location is greal. I  like the idea of working together," she said, "but we have lo  keep our options open."  The group has decided to follow the Perks recreation services  study, released two years ago.  The study identified key recreational components that the Sunshine Coast was lacking, including a proper ice rink, pool and  youth centre.  If the sociely is able to secure  the necessary financing, it would  likely push for the initial construction of an aquatic and youth  centre in a cenlral location on the  Coast, presumably in Sechelt. An  ice arena and cultural centre  might follow in the second phase  of development.  Hayward envisions the first  phase of the complex ��� to be  built over Ihe nexl four years ���  costing $3 million.  "There are more young families moving to the Coast and I  think Ihey will be demanding  something be done soon," she  said. Gordon Bishop, vice-president of the sociely, said the group  would be reviewing other recre  ational studies and complexes  from neighboring communities.  "It's an excellent project but it  has to be built properly; it can't  be half-assed," Bishop said.  If the complex is constructed  in Sechelt, he said it should be  within walking distance of  schools and the business district  "so people can walk over at lunch  and have a swim or skate.

And make no mistake about it, this will be  revenue that will benefit the whole area, even if the major  events are planned for Sechelt, where most of the acom-  modations for the estimated 200 delegates and their wives  have been booked.  There may even be a very specific side benefit out of  this for Gibsons, where overflow accommodations, if they  are required, will be booked.  However, that is not where the main benefits to both  communities will come. Clearly, once the delegates and  their spouses are in the area, which is famous for its  scenery and its beaches, will want to see the sights along  as much of the Coast as they can. They will want it all  and that will likely include Gibsons and Roberts Creek  and Halfmoon Bay and Pender Harbour and...  No, it's not what the visitors will do that we have to  worry about; it's what we'll do that could make or break  us.  Those of us involved in businesses, whether they're  restaurants or retail stores or hotels or motels, know and  act on the principle that visitors are customers who came  here from somewhere else, and like their local counterparts, want to leave with a feeling of satisfaction with  both their financial and personal contact ��� and we act on  that.  Somehow, though, we aren't quite ready to do that  when it comes to dealing with our counterparts in the various communities. There seems to be a feeling that if  Sechelt gets something, then it's taking away from Gibsons. And in the big picture, just the opposite is true. No  matter how you cut it, we are all in the same figurative  boat, which takes in the whole coastal strip.  One of the strengths of the Sunshine Coast is the  intense feeling for community that exists in Egmont and  Davis Bay and all the various different official and unoffi-  ciakpockets of population that dot the Coastline. However, if we are to survive economically ��� and a goodly portion of the Coast seems to agree that tourism and visitors  will figure largely in any such plan ��� then all of us will  have to pull together to pull it off.  That's why this convention in Sechelt will be an unofficial test of our desire to make tourism an important industry on the Coast. For this conference to really succeed the  whole-hearted participation of all the communities will be  needed.  Elsewhere in the newspaper, there is a reference to the  relationship between the Sechelt and Gibsons Chambers  being "rocky." Perhaps this project could be the catalyst  to change that.  If they can get together on this project, to make the best  damn naval conference these veterans have ever seen,  then they will be half way to bringing the Coastal communities together, for everyone's benefit.  GORDON HADN'T HAD 50 MUCH A5 A SOUND BITE IN DAYS...  HANDS TREMBLING. HE DIALLED THE NUMBER  A big blueprint for  The New Welfare'  We have been greatly disheartened by recent news reports  regarding welfare and its varied  uses and abuses....We believe  the time has come to acknowledge that this system no longer  works and to work towards  some resolution of the situation.  Not unlike many young families  today, we are struggling to make  ends meet.  In November of 1992, we  moVed to the Sunshine Coast in  hopes of making a better life for  our family. At the time it  seemed that my husband would  have a job that would more than  adequately support us; this in  fact was not the case.  When the hoped for job did  not come through...it was our  decision to remain on the Sun  shine Coast. Since that time my  husband has taken any and all  work that he could find; sometimes this meant that life barely  made it week to week. In the  summer of 1993, at a lime when  our financial situation reached  an all-time low, my husband  was forced to return to Vancouver to find woik. This meant that  during the week our family was  separated.  We do not look for or expect  handouts, we accept responsibility for our actions. At those  times when the financial burden  was beyond us, we asked for  help from family and friends.  always taking on the responsibility of prompt repayment. We  have been forced to learn new  ways to economize....I tell you  this not so you will feel sotry for  us; lhat is the last thing we want  or ask for, but rather so that you  will some idea where we are  coming from.  For the past week, Erik and I  have spent much time discussing  our ideas for some possible solutions....Neither of us would  wish to see women or children  suffer in abusive situations, or  children suffer due to abrupt  changes in their parents' lives.  However, it does not seem right  that we as a society are being  asked to support: a) single parents who have chosen to walk  away from a "until death do us  part" commitment so that they  "'tan find themselves, without  hcflepliiig the responsibility of  thai choice; b) young employable people who are not pre-'  pared or have never learned to  accept responsibility for supporting themselves, even if this  means accepting minimum  wages or part-time jobs.  With that in mind we would  like to enclose a portion of the  results from those discussions,  as a possible solution and ultimate goal for the welfare system:  Under the new system, welfare or social assistance would  become interim income replacement or supplement only, except  in the case of people who lack  lifeskills or the ability to leam  lifeskills. All recipients must  prove that they are willing to  help themselves and the ultimate  goal of social assistance should  be to return a person to a timely  state of self-reliance. The payment of assistance would no  longer be by cheque, instead:   ������">  1. The Province would pur-'  chase existing properties, either  apartments or hotels.

If the recipient is  not willing to accept this respon-  sibility, then this assistance  would be denied them. Once a  recipient has found employment,  they would have a grace period  to find alternate, permanent  accommodation.  Benefit: The government is  making a capital investment and  recipients/tenants learn about  self-reliance and responsibility.  2. The Province would on its  own, or through existing retailers, establish distribution centres  which would provide food,  clothing, and other basic necessities to each recipient. Each  person/family would have a  monthly allotment. If large  items, ie, furniture, ait required,   they would be saved for within  this allotment.  Benefit: By buying these  kinds of items on a large scale  the government would be able to  receive better prices and bigger  savings.  3. A small allotment of funds  for disposable income, allowing  for discretionary spending on  the part of the recipient. If this is  lost or stolen or runs out before  the end of a month, there should  be no replacement.  4. Bus passes, for use during  all rate periods, to enable recipients to travel to and from job  interviews.  turn to page 5  Savouring past pleasures from a palace of hedonism  Copies of my favourite BC newspaper have had  a hard time keeping up with us the last year as we  followed a meandering way, trying out some of our  options after freeing ourselves from a 16-year  engagement with the deadlines and pressures of  community journalism.  Just a few days ago a copy arrived, dated Dec.  6. It was one of the first we had received in some  three months and we fell upon it eagerly to see  how il was doing; to see how the community it  serves was bearing up, and yes, for some gleanings  about the doings of those who until quite recently  shared our days and ways.  It was the ever vigilant one who first noticed the  book review of Peter Trower's first novel, Gm-  gan's Cafe. The review was written by the acting  editor of the paper, a fellow called Stuart Bumside.  It seemed, somehow, a fit meeting of reader, of  reviewer, and certainly of material.  The rough-hewn outlines of Crogan's Cafe first  appeared serialized in Trower's long running column Pages of a Life Log, which ran without miss  every week from 1977 to 1992.  Its first drafts were battered out in the garage  studio Peter used to live in on his mother's property at the foot of Truman Road in Gibsons Harbour.  It probably appeared in the newspaper in the late  1970s.  It was a very different harbour back then, when  the gregarious poet held court in the postage stamp  studio, lt was a harbour of ducks and geese and  musings  playing children. From Mrs. Cassin's front window  the North Shore Mountains towered across the  Sound beyond the little harbour.  Whether it was a better harbour then will be for  each individual to decide for himself or herself.  Certainly, nostalgia makes it seem so to me, back  then before the forest of boats commanded the  foreground, sending the ducks and geese and children somewhere else.  We used to call Pete's shack the palace of hedonism, a place to which you could always repair for  some good drink and other delights, including conversation, poetry readings and good music.  I've seen as many as 16 people crowded into the  place and enough good humour and animal spirits  to come near to blowing the roof off the place.  Mind you, it was quite interesting when only  Trower was there. In its tiny area there were piles  of books and records everywhere, magazines and  comic books spilled from the most unlikely places.  John burnside  There was, withal, an order to this chaos. More  than once I've seen Trower leap into action from a  somnolent stillness and lay his hands with astonishing dexterity on the book or magazine or comic  book or record which exactly touched the conversation of the moment More lhan once I've enjoyed  watching the double takes of newcomers meeting  this evidence of order in the midst of the unlikely  for the very first time.  More than Grogan's Cafe was read page by  page as it emerged from the battered portable in the  dead centre of the shack. Many other columns were  read by this fomter editor in the shack over a glass  or two or wine. Many fine poems were pulled from  the machine when I arrived and passed over for  first perusal. I often read them aloud on first sight  and I've probably read at least once aloud as many  of Trower's poems as he has, albeit to a smaller  audience.  We drank a lot of wine, it's true. One friend of  my former years came to the Coast several times  around that time with a view to settling. Subsequently, he became a high-profile fish farmer ���  one of the few who actually made a lot of money,  but that's another story.  He would look me up when passing through  Gibsons and found me more than once in Trower's  shack.  Years later when he was rich and with social  pretensions he met Trower on the ferry and reminisced about those visits and about the vile wine  that we as often as not were drinking.  Trower, to my mind, struck a telling blow  against yuppiedom everywhere when, having listened for some time to the exposition of the visits  and the poor quality of the wine said simply: "Hell,  man, taste was never our trip."  It may be ihere was a 12- or 13-year-old boy  waiting with his sisters on the beach whilst his  father drank wine and read the first draft of Grogan's Cafe. He did a good job of the review in the  paper just arrived.  Another of the newspaper's alumni to take a  hand was former editor and columnist and a good  poet in his own write, John Moore, who did some  stout editorial woik out of friendship on the novel.  It's good to know the book is out, Pete. You  know I expect a ugned copy, surely a wine-drinking buddy's due?  (Editors note: A book review by Peler Trower  appears on page 14.)

The  post-Christmas deflation of  most bank accounts prompts  merchants to slash prices on all  manner of items ranging from  stereo components to easy  chairs.  Shoppers with sharp eyes and  a sense of good value can easily  do very well.  Book buyers are included in  this group. To demonstrate the  point, your agent recently used  the forest of sales signs as an  excuse to journey through the  discount tables of several booksellers' shops/Here's what the  trip unearthed:  ��� The Siren, an anthology of  short stories written since the  1930s by respected Italian novelist Dino Buzzatl. The tales  presented here are quirky and  dream-like, reminiscent of the  best of Kafka, Halo Calvino or  Flann O'Brien. Buzzati is a  charming storyteller, combining  wit and imagination with a lyrical prose style.  Equally enchanting is the  edition itself. Published in 1984  by North Point Press of San  Francisco, it's a large-format  errata  duncan macdonnell  paperback lovingly printed on  acid-free paper with a sewn  binding and, of all things, a slip  cover.  ��� The Friends of Eddi Coyle  ��� the now classic thriller of  small-time underworld life  penned in 1971 by George V.  Higgins and later made into a  noteworthy film starring Robert  Mitchum.  Ingenious plot devices, taut  characterizations, tight writing  and crackling dialogue speed  this volume to a surprising, but  inevitable conclusion. Highly  recommended.  This edition of The Friends  of Eddie Coyle was published in  Penguin paperback in 1987.  ��� The Flower Show/The Tolh  Family, two novellas in one  book by Istavan Orkeny, a Hun  garian writer with a keen sense  of the absurdities of modern life.  Both stories are best described  as black comedies, colourfully  told with plenty of irony and  more than a touch of lunacy.  Orkeny's style earned him the  title "master of the grotesque"  and caused critics to compare  his works to a demented joining  of the Marx Brothers and Dr.  Strangelove. A treat.  The two Orkeny novellas  were translated into English in  1982 and published by New  Directions Paperbooks of New  York. It was published simultaneously in Canada by George J.  McLeod of Toronto.  ��� The Last Good Kiss ��� a  road trip detective yarn by  James Crumley, described by  the Detroit News as "one of the  sternest voices in narrative fiction today." Crumley combines  a flawed protagonist, an intriguing plot and lucid writing to produce an entertaining alternative  to the stereotypical detective  novel. The unusual setting ���  the American West, chiefly the  roadside taverns found between  Montana and Colorado ��� is  another pleasant surprise.  "The Last Good Kiss is a  novel of detection, one so rich  in detail, with character and plot  so well developed, that it works  on many more levels than just  storytelling," opined the St.  Louis Dispatch.  Crumley's book was published in 1988 by Vintage Contemporaries, a division of Random House of New York City.  When all was said and done,  this particular post-Christmas  book buying spree cost $18 ���  give or take a few pennies ���  which is a bargain by any yardstick. The total could have been  rounded out to $20 with copies  of Alice in Wonderland and  Wind In The Willows, each  available for 99 cents, but those  will have to wait for another  time.

C. Single parents who are  forced to put their children in  day care so that they may return  to the work force might argue  that this is detrimental to their  children.  On the other side of the argument, what is the effect on these  children, when they see the government, and by extension, the  taxpayers, constantly being  blamed for inadequate support  while single parents do not take  on their share of financial  responsibility for their family  and the country.  Years ago, my mother made  the suggestion that single parents should live communally,  sharing in the care and support  of the children. This might take  the form of one parent doing  daycare while the others work,  or parents working on a variety  of shifts with the parents at  home taking responsibility for  the children.  We are not advocating an  outright abolishment of our current system.  However, there has to be a  stringent tightening and  revamping of the entire system....Both Erik and I know  personally of people who have  made a career out of working,  and cheating, the system.

Joel Johnstone photo  Local campaign targets heart disease  Heart disease and stroke remain the number one cause of death in Canada.  That is the Valentine's Day message Ihis  year from the Heart and Stroke Foundation  of BC and the Yukon.  In British Columbia alone, 170 people die  each week from heart disease and stroke.  Nationally, that figure climbs to approximately 75,000 deaths every year - more than  the combined total number of deaths from  cancer, accidents and AIDS in this country.  Of that total, the majority of people suffering from heart disease, 44,000, will die  from heart attacks; 14,000 from strokes; and  17,000 from "other" heart malfunctions.  The economic effect of heart disease on  the country's health care system is significant, estimated at $17 billion in medical  costs, lost wages and reduced productivity.  george In glbsotts  While traditionally thought of as a "man's  disease, heart disease is also the official primary killer of Canadian women. In fact, it  effects people of all ages, gender and culture.  Smoking Is considered the  most effective means of  ensuring heart disease  Smokers ��� watch out. Smoking is considered the most effective means of ensuring  heart disease.  Smoking causes the heart to beat faster,  raises blood pressure and increases carbon  monoxide in the blood which deprives the  heart of the oxygen it needs to function.  Women who smoke run a two to six times  greater risk of having a fatal heart attack  than non-smoking women. In addition,  women smokers who use birth control pills  are 10-20 times more likely to suffer from  heart disease and stroke than non-smokers.  Poor nutrition, lack of exercise, stress and  high blood pressure are all other means of  increasing the odds of a heart attack or  stroke.  The national Heart and Stroke Foundation  credits its research advancements to saving  more than 20,000 lives annually. The BC  and Yukon branch of the foundation funds  74 per cent of heart and stroke research in  BC  Most heart disease and stroke can be prevented through healthy lifestyle choices.  ��.*m  SEAWORTHY SAYINGS!

One  of the complaints stated by a WW  11 soldier writing in the Vancouver Sun's Voices Column, one I  heartily agree with, is the ever-  frequent interruption of the  scenes of valorous action on the  beach of Dieppe by one vapid  commercial after another. This  occurs in all its programs of  course.  I have long held that CBC-TV  produces very little that compares  with PBS Channel 9 or even with  the Knowledge Network.

Joel Johmione photo news  Regatta planned for May long weekend  An event that could become one of Ihe  flagship events on the Sunshine Coast in  years to come has been born.  The Gibsons Yacht Club is currently  finalizing plans to stage a three-day regatta  on the May long weekend (May 21-23).  "We've got a date and we're off and running. This is going lo be an amazing thing,"  said event coordinator Dennis O'Brien.  The Yacht Club hopes to lure from 20 lo  40 sailing craft to the event, which will feature races outside and inside Gibsons Harbour.  robarts creek  "People consider Gibsons as a destination  thai is one of the best (for such an event).  It's really an excellent area for it because the  wind is great," O'Brien said.  "The club is pumped. This is going to be  a big thing."  In addition, with hopes of increasing the  size of the event in Ihe future, such as  expanding to 60 or more boats, it should  become a popular event on the Coast and  add an extra bit of nautical zing for visitors  to eyeball during the first big weekend of the  tourist season.  O'Brien said he's optimistic the event  will be a smash success and become a  "major event."  The Yacht Club clubhouse is also going  to be transformed into "a big pirate pub or  something and we'll party the whole weekend," O'Brien said.  The club is now preparing to approach  Gibsons council and other groups on the  Coast for their input and support.  Also, an invitation letter-writing campaign to fellow yachting clubs in Canada is  under way.  by Katharine Trueman  885-2282  This past weekend was a  flurry of activity at Camp Byng.  The Sunshine District hosted a  Gilwell Part I Course, Ihe first  in many years,  There were candidates from  Pender Harbour, Sechelt, Gibsons, Powell River and Richmond.  The contents of the sessions  certainly taught the new leaders  what Beavers and Cubs today  require in the way of leadership.  One highlight of the weekend  was a Project Learning Tree  workshop led by Coast teacher  Bob Benmore and BC Forestry  Association Representative  Colin Boog.  A hands-on method of  acquainting leaders with the  trees and natural resources  which surround the 200-plus-  acre facility was well received.  The food was catered by the  14th BP Guild who did a great  job. The weekend appeared to  be a success.  For candidate Graham Walker, a Cub leader at the Roberts  Creek Pack, the fellowship really helped bring his Scouting role  inlo perspective.  OCP  The final reading and chance  lo state one's opinion for the  Creek Official Community Plan  was very well attended on January 30.  Regional board members  were oul in full force to record  pro and con comments. What  happens now? Well the regional  district will consider the comments, talk to the study resource  people, consult maps further and  then we will hear the results of  our newest community plan.  Tanks remain  In case you have missed the  recent Roberts Creek Community Association meeting, the  tanks are to remain in Roberts  Creek for an undetermined stay  if not forever...well, so they  claim.  Many residents who fear for  the safety of the community  with the new movement of  propane after June have taken  exception to this announcement.  A fax of the ICG letter  received by the SCRD has been  sent to the Minister of the Environment, Moe Sihola, and a  telephone call has been received  from Margo Elewonibi, manager of Land Administration and  we are promised the department  will keep on top of this issue  and be in touch with the region-  Going Aw.iy  on Vacation?

Every member is  urgd)�� Mend and express Iheir  views and opinions.  On Saturday, Jan. 29 an interesting walk up Chapman Creek  was conducted by Bob Wilson.  "Our equivalent of Clayoquot  Sound" was one of the remarks  overheard during Ihe walk. There  was a fir tree that had been cut  down, unauthorized ��� four feet  through and estimated by  Forestry to be approximately 500  years old. Obviouvly someone  had hoped to get their winter  supply of wood free and desecrated the forest in their attempt.  Mr. Wilson has said that he  would be more than happy to  lake anyone who is interested in  going as this is a project thai is  near and dear to his heart; take a  friend or two.  Many thanks to our local historian, Ernie Wood, for the valuable input on the history of our  dock. It was built in the fall, winter and spring of 1924-25 by the  government and was in operation in the summer of 1925. It  was then that we were called  Davis Bay for the first time. The  Union Steamships used to call  into this port and discharge their  passengers. The ship would leave  Vancouver at 6 pm loaded with  husbands who were coming for  the weekend, hence Ihe name  Daddy Boats was invented.  Some time in Ihe '50s ihere  was a freight shed erected on the  dock and it was here all the baggage and freight would be held  until claimed. This shed would  remain even after Standard Oil  purchased the dock from the  government until the early 1970s  when kids started a fire in it and  the decision to tear it down was  made. Itowmahy kids dived and '  jumped off the roof of that old  shed? Mine did.  In the late '50s and early '60s,  Standard Oil had a bulk plant in  Wilson Creek at Field Road and  the Highway. The oil barge  would tie up at the dock in Wilson Creek which the company  leased from the government and  pump the oil up to the tanks.  In the early '60s, Standard  bought the existing dock in  Davis Bay from the government  which was then big enough to  drive cars out on.' L-shaped, it  accommodated dozens of people  who stood shoulder to shoulder  fishing. Because the dock is so  ' open t�� file 'tides an* storey  weather, it is a costly operation  to keep it maintained. After a  particularly bad winter, when the  sea buffets the pilings day after  day, there are times When they  have to be replaced. Such was  the case eight years ago when the  entire dock was rebuilt and made  smaller than it originally had  been.  Chevron has only one hard  and fast rule. When the oil barge  comes in, the gates are locked for  security reasons and no one is  allowed on the dock or to tie up  at the dock. Otherwise, they are  more than generous about allowing boats to use the facility in  times of need or distress. A very  nice neighbour to have.  Thanks to Bea Rankin for her  input Dan Simking and William  Rankin, formerly of S&R  Sawmill of West Sechelt, cut the  timbers for the redecking of the  dock in 1948/49 and remembers  it well.  4-^  ONLY  PER CONCERT!

"You can't remember at our  ages usually what you did yesterday bul you can remember a trip  to Newfoundland when you are  oul in the fog for seven days and  never saw the ship you were  escorting," said Short, a founding  member of the Sunshine Coast  Branch of the Canadian Naval  Veterans Association.  Short, 72, is co-chairing Ihe  organizing committee association's Western Branch convention in Sechelt Sept. 9-11.  More than 200 delegates are  expected to attend, making it the  single largest convention to be  held on the Coast.  "I guess one of the funniest  things is you remember the guys  when they were 19 years old and  you walk in the room and there's  a whole room full of old farts all  about 70 years old, bald heads or  while hair," Short said, in anticipation of meeting up with his  navy cronies.  Short was a fresh-faced youth  of 18 when he entered the navy in  1940. After three months of training at a Vancouver naval academy. Short transferred to Halifax.  Following a brief turn in the communications branch, he was sent  to sea on one of the several  destroyers he would serve on for  the next four and half years.  During his time at sea, Short  and his crewmales would endure  terrific storms, the bitter cold,  occasional shelling from German  U-boats and mentally exhausting  isolation.  At least he never got seasick.  "There was an excitement, I  guess you might call it, because a  lot of us guys had never been  away from home before, living  under all of these different conditions with nothing but rules and  Above, the crew of the HMCS Columbia; former Sechelt alderman Ken Short (top row third from  left) did his first detail on this boat from February 1942 to June 1943. Below, Ken Short today.  regulations to follow," Short said  during an interview at his home  in Porpoise Bay. "The food was  lousy and so was Ihe pay but we  managed to survive."  Short said the feeling that the  crew was getting through the war  together helped create a bond  between the men, which continues to this day. He has attempted  to stay in touch with some of his  old "war-time buddies" and  expects more than a few yams to  be tossed about at the September  convention. "Mind you, some of  it gets a bit exaggerated."  Of his memories of the war,  Short likes to recall the brief  shore leaves his crew was granted. He and his crewmales would  enjoy the glitz and glamor of the  New York City dance halls right  up to the moment they were sent  back to sea for another five or six  weeks.  "1 went to places I probably  would not have gotten to if I  hadn't been in the Navy. We did  get around and had a look at  things," he said.  The war took him Nova Scotia, Boston, New York and the  south coast of England, among  other places.  Short is not afraid to make it  known lhal he views military service as a positive experience.  Although he has little taste for  war and combat ��� "War is a  stupid bloody thing," he said ���  military service is Ihe best way to  leam respecl and discipline.  "As a matter of fact, I think  lhal is one of Ihe answers for the  present-day youth problem. But  as soon as you mention that they  say, 'Oh, you old war buggers,  you are mongering war again.'  "But there is nothing like a  couple of years in the good old  navy and military establishments  to straighten you out."  Would he do it again? Probably not, he said, wilh a laugh.  "Those of us who went  through it, I guess we'd never  want to do it again, but there is a  time of life for everything and at  that time it was the thing to do."

Probably the first endeavour  is an overnight trip via BC Rail  to Prince George and return,  leaving our centre early enough  on the morning of March 27 to  catch the 6:20 am ferry from  Langdale.  Full details of this adventure  are available at the centre  (phone 885-3513).  Ask for Robbie Robson who  is our travel coordinator.  The matter of urgency should  be mentioned since approximately one half of the total 36  reservations have been snapped  up as of my press deadline.  Raffle  Again, looking ahead to our  spring tea and sale on April 23,  tickets have been prepared for a  raffle which will be drawn on  that date at 2 pm.

The items  lo be raffled are on display in  the vestibule of the centre for  your perusal.  Pot Luck supper  Mention simply must be  made of the 70-odd people who  attended the Jan. 29 (Saturday  night) pot luck supper at the  centre.  Following the sumptuous  meal wilh a greal variety of  desserts to be had, the tables  were moved aside, card tables  were set up for bridge, whist,  cribbage and even 'tile rummy.'  Then two carpets were laid  down to introduce new members  to carpet bowling.

This tea should  be no exception and the goodies  have been mouth-watering in  the past.  Mark your calendars so you  do not miss this one.  Carpet bowling  This specific activity continues to draw a full slate of players on four carpets Mondays  and usually two carpets on  Wednesdays. Come and join the  fun.  You will be on a different  team each week so attendance  can be spasmodic when necessary.  Continuing popularity will  probably necessitate another  carpet soon.

WMWi WM& RF/*VIBK RE^VIKK  TOM TURNER  Top Producer  by Maureen Parrott, 883-9189  Walking down a path last  Sunday, young Rhea called out,  "Look, Gramma! There's a porcupine in a tree." Grandma  Sally, walking with her, looked  and saw the animal, too.  The last time we had a porcupine in Egmont, the whole  school turned out to see it. I  remember, because I was in  Egmont elementary school then.  Wally Silvey reached up with a  long pole topped with a stuffed *  cloth glove, Ihe porcupine swatted the glove with its tail and  when Wally brought it down Ihe  glove was full of quills (souvenirs for us kids). This porcupine only stayed one day; probably just as well, since Ihe lasl  one ended up in a slewpol. If  your dog tangles wilh a porcupine, the best remedy may be  baking soda with a little water to  make a paste; the quills just melt  away.

But the hard part in the video rental process  for some people seems to be returning them,  and coming up with excuses to explain why  they shouldn't be charged extra for the late  return.  "We get the spectrum; It's a hoot," said  Gibsons Video Etc owner D'Arcy Burk.  "It's usually the horrible disease, my mother-in-law was hit by a bus. We've had some  really wild ones.  "You can always tell when a three-year-old  brings the movie back lhal it's late."  Problem is, most of the late returns come  from the same people, he said.  "Ninety per cent of the lates are five per  cenl of the population." he said.  Sharlene Coly, manager of Wilderness  Video in Sechelt, said she finds most people to  be honest and they admit they "forgot" to  return their rentals.  In Pender Harbour, some of Rob's Video  Rental customers tend to explain their tardiness with the excuse of "no wheels," said  owner Rob Nieuwenhuis.  However, perhaps because of the number of  video rental locations on the Coast, a common  return faux pas is people returning their rentals  to the wrong location.  "That happens quite often," said Marion  McDonald, manager of Budget Video and  Laser. But the biggest worry for dispersers of  renlal videos and VCRs is what kind of shape  their property will be in when it's returned.  All shop owners say their clients are conscientious when it comes to rewinding tapes and  keeping the tapes and machines in good shape.  However, there are some horror stories.  McDonald said she's lost some VCRs when  renter, simply fail to return them.  "In a lol of cases people lend to disappear,  for whatever reason. They move or become  unavailable, bul it's not a major problem. We  keep pretty close tabs on our hardware."  For such cases, Wilderness Video is examining the possibility of attaching homing  devices to their video machines.  "The worst problem is the stolen ones arid  we can't truck them down," said manager  Coty. In fact, the store lost seven VCRs last  year to renters who failed to return Ihe  machines. Nieuwenhuis said he had one customer bring a machine in after it "fell out of  the back of his pickup truck and bounced on  the road. Usually they're pretty good but you  get the odd one where a kid gels hold of one."  Video Elc's Burk recalled a lime when a  customer relumed a Nintendo machine that  was full of ��� chocolate puddingl  And another customer smashed a VCR.  "He was lhal mad al ihe machine," Burk  laughed.  Coast News,  February 7, 1994             13  GIBSONS  IN-STOCK  CHRISTIAN BOOKS  Wide selection  of fiction books  tP^k  for rainy day reading.

And lhal doesn't include locations like the Roberts Creek  Store which has video rentals  among other items available to  customers. With such locations  in mind, videos can be rented  almo| everywhere.  Sharlene Coty, manager of  Wilderness Video in Sechelt,  said business is steady at her  location and at special times of  the year it becomes constant and  wild, while at other times it  slows down.  During Ihe National Hockey  League playoffs, for example, or  when the weather is too nice to  be inside watching the lube, it's  dead, she said.  Rob Nieuwenhuis, owner of  Lowndes  memorial  fund  increased  The Gillian Lowndes Memorial fund has received additional  funding to be used to help Sunshine Coast artists. The announcement of the donation by the  Lowndes family was made at the  last meeting of the Sunshine  Coasl Ails Council.  The annual award is made in  honour of Gillian Lowndes who,  al the lime of her death from cancer al Ihe age of 29, was the vice-  president of the Arts Council.  A $2,000 fund was established  by the council and the family in  1981, and was further endowed  by the family in 1985, so thai Ihe  interest from a total of $5,000 was  available for Ihe award.  Lowndes was a dancer and  also produced the work of others.  Her last work was entitled Two  Up Front and was performed wilh  a Countryside Concert locally  before being performed at the  Western Front in Vancouver.  Her interest and involvement  in the aits is credited wilh going a  long way lo establish the Sunshine Coast as an artist's communily.  The call for nominations for  Ihe award is put out in September  and the award is presented at a  special celebration in November  at the Arts Centre.  Last year's winner, Karen  Boolhroyd, was Ihe first dancer lo  be honoured since the award was  established.  Rob's Video Rentals in Pender  Harbour, like most other video  operators on the Coast, has also  noted business down when the  sun is up and when  the rain clouds are ������  busy depositing  their cargo, business "goes crazy."  But the common-variety busy  days are Friday and  Saturday, every ������  store contacted  during an informal survey reported.  "Saturday around here is a  zoo," said Video Etc. owner  D'Arcy Burk.  Christmas, on the other hand,  "is massive crazy," Coty  laughed.  'Saturday around  zoo'  ���D'Arcy Burk  more people in Pender Harbour  buying videos than ever before  this past year and video game  rentals, such as Super-Nintendo  and Sega-Genesis,       are also popular.  And for Marion  McDonald of Budget Video1 and-1  Laser in O^go^  Park Plaza, sales  of Walt Disney        films are always  steady sellers.  As for what people on the  Coast are watching, each store  has a different answer.  McDonald said, "All of the  above. It depends on the clients."  Her assessment echoed all the  other video owners and managers  interviewed in that "new releas-  Nieuwenhuis has noticed     es" are the most popular choice.  After that, she said, comedies  and dramas are big and foreign  films are starting to gain a following.  In the Pender Harbour area,  it's comedies, Nieuwenhuis  reported. And it's even better "if  you    can    get    a    good  ; comedy/adventure."  '    As of the end of January,  ' video buffs on the Coast were  keen on films such as Robin  Hood: Men in Tights, The Firm,  Cliffhanger, Rising Sun, Dragon  and Hocus Pocus.  Does any one age group rent  videos more than the other? The  answer is no.  "We've got them all," Burk  said. "We were going to do some  advertising to a special group and  we had a hard time figuring out  which group."

Purdy as he used lo sign himself  more formally in the early days)  is a true original - a rough-  hewn, plain-spoken icon of  Canadian letters. After a long  apprenticeship period Purdy  transformed himself from a doggerel rhymester into a skillful  practitioner of modern free  verse. His Governor General's  Award-winning collection, The  Cariboo Horses, was published  in I96S lo wide critical acclaim.  The rest ��� to coin a cliche ��� is  history.  Purdy has now elected lo  detail that history ��� including  Ihe difficult formative years ���  in a frank and revealing autobiography. Reaching For The  Beaufort Sea - Harbour - 199.1,  takes its somewhat enigmatic  title from Northwest Passage by  the late folksinger, Stan Rogers,  a kindred spirit and one of  Purdy's favourite performers.  When queried about the title by  Peler Gzowski on the Morning-  side show recently, the poet  explained that it could be taken  as a metaphor for the search for  excellence in writing. Reaching  For The Beaufort Sea is essentially the story of that quest, told  in Purdy's customarily uninhibited fashion.  The basic facts of Purdy's  life are reasonably well known  to anyone with even a passing  interest in modem Canadian literature. His poems have recorded the highlights of his againsl-  the-odds rise. There have been  numerous biographical articles  in addition. But it's one thing to  read of Purdy as mentor at large  and literary legend from a distanced point of view and quite  another to hear the facts of the  matter from the poet himself.  Purdy is no shrinking violet anil  he tells the tales of growing and  greening in his own inimitable  voice. It's masks-off time and  Purdy plunges right in ��� starting with the sentimental fellow  who cranked out the early stuff  Make Tour  VALENTINE  HAPPY  at  GIBSONS PARK PLAZA  SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 12  Unit 111  (between Sears & Bernadette's Galleries)  Hullabaloo Creative Workshop  1 -3 p.m.  Open to "kids" of all ages  FREE  Participants will be guided  through the process of creating  their own handmade valentines.  ��� Now China KHchen  ' Soars  ' Mountain High Cyclo  1 Frontrunnors  ���Color Vour World  ��� Sumhlno Coait  Insurance Agencies Ltd.  ��� Gibsons Pet Foods k Supplies  ��� Dar Lebanon Restaurant  Eugenia's Interiors  PappaJoes'sMua  largalns Galore  Re/Max "Top 20'Realty  ludget Video  Allaba'sCate  IGA Plus Gibsons  lemadette's Galleries  Nutcracker Sweet  The cover of Al Purdy's new book, Reaching for the Beaufort Sea.  ��� stumbling towards his real  persons. He will undoubtedly  anger a few sensitive souls with  his frank assessments. He takes  no prisoners and pulls no punches.  Getting famous is an unlikely  possibility in the first place. Al  Purdy made all the right moves  after a very slow start, ignoring  failure, pushing buttons, laying  down his thorny truths with a  healthy leavening of humour.  For most of its almost 300  pages, Purdy's salty memoirs  pursue a straight-forward  chronological course, beginning  with his bookish and rather  lonely childhood. (An only  child, he was raised by his widowed mother). Purdy began  writing primitive poems at an  early age but school did not particularly intrigue him.  He quit in the ninth grade to  pursue a life of adventure, riding  the freights from Trenton,  Ontario to Vancouver when he  was 17. In due course, Purdy  enlisted in the RCAF and married Eurithe Parkhurst, who  remains his companion to this  day.  In 1955, after a five-year  stint in a Vancouver mattress  factory, Purdy quit his job,  determined to become a full-  time writer. He and Eurithe  moved back to Ontario, built an  A-frame at Roblin Lake and  embarked on a period of  extreme poverty and privation.  Purdy sold plays to the CBC and  struggled to break his poetry  free from the unfashionable  strictures of rhyme and meter.  Poems For All The Annettes in  1962, was his first breakthrough  book and The Cariboo Horse in  I96S, completed the process.  Purdy was now firmly established as an important Canadian  poet and Ihe years of impecunious struggling were over.  At Ihis point in his narrative,  Purdy abandons conventional  chronology. The long, final  chapter of Beaufort Sea is entitled Anecdotage - and it is llie  most fascinaling segment of the  book. Here Purdy jumps nimbly  aboul ihrough ihe years following his inilial success, telling  tales oul of school on many colleagues and fellow poets. He  spins yarns about Margaret  Lawrence, Margaret Alwood,  Earlc Birney, Louis Dudek, Irving Layton, Hugh Garner, Milton Acorn, Jack McClelland,  John Newlove, Margaret Avison  and a host of others thai are perceptive, outrageous and often  very funny.  The beer-squirting contest  with Margaret Atwood and a  drunken wrestling match with  John Newlove are cases in  point. There is even an offbeat  meeting with a pre-prime ministerial Pierre Trudeau in Fidel  Castro's Cuba.  This lively section of offbeat  glimpses and opinions provides  the icing on the cake for an  engrossing and wholly individual memoir. Purdy's editor, Alex  Widen, has done a yeoman job  in helping pull the whole  sprawling saga together.  Harbour has done an equally  fine service in bringing it to  print.

And the winning form came back in style  as the Pigs gored the Kats 26-0 before about  50 people beneath a rare deep blue sky.  The Pigs' scoring was pretty well distributed throughout the game, with the club  scoring two tries in the first and two tries in  the second half.  Albert Bezaire rambled into the end zone  in the first half for a try and kicker Dave  Strohm added Ihe two-point kick to lift Ihe  Pigs inlo a 7-0 lead.  Despite the lopsided score, the Kats actually played the Pigs hard, especially in the  forwards, but good fortune was with the  home side. "Everytime we got Ihe ball, something good happened for us," said club  spokesman Ray Dow.  'Everytime we got the ball,  something good  happened/or us'  -Kay Dow  The Pigs' second try was the result of the  squad capitalizing on the Kats faux pas of  feeling the ball and getting a penalty for  wasting time.  With ihe ball coming out at the five-metre  line of the Kats, the Pigs swung the ball out  to Bill Henderson who bowled over a Kats  defender and rumbled into the end zone.  Some of the good fortune lurking around  the Pigs on thai day also came in the form of  three missed field goals by the Kats.  In the second half, John Rainer scored a  try and Strohm connected on his third  straight kick to up the Pigs lead to 21 and as  the game wound down, Jim Pers scooped a  toss out on the wing and ran around the Kats'  end to score in the corner.  This time, because of where Pers touched  the ball down, Strohm couldn't make the  kick and the Pigs settled for five final points.  With the victory, the Pigs record  improved lo 14 wins and one loss, good for a  continued ride in first place.  The Pigs nexl game was Sunday, Feb. 6,  at Langdale against the fourth-place Trojans,  when the Coast News was going lo press.

The altitude of members of  the Suncoast Racquet Club is  enough to make you think it was  summer.  The non-profit club, now in  its third year of operation, continues lo pull in avid tennis  players, both young and old. To  date, the club has signed up 90  ball swatters and is looking for  more.  "Yes, our membership is  increasing, mainly because it is  a racquet sport that we can practise  all year round," said Val  McCourt, a member of Ihe  club's board of directors.  The club's roots can be  traced back to the efforts of  Wakefield Inn owners Rick and  Gary Radymski, who installed a  bubble over the racquet courts  and operated the facility for  profit.  In 1990, the racquet club was  formed and subsequently took  over the facilities for regular  play and yearly tournaments.  Its members range in up :  from 14 to 78.  "It is good exercise and Ihere  are a lot of us who don't go to  aerobics.  "This sort of fills that need,"  McCourt said, an avid player for  the past 10 years.  On Jan. 30, the club wrapped  up its first two-day ladies double tournament of the year.  Shelley Flockhart and Bonny  Bennett managed to beat out  five other teams, including  finalists Jeff Taylor and Oda  Rulzcbcck.

Back Eddy Marine Pub  in Honour of  Robbie Burns  featuring:  Sechelt Legion Pipe  Band & Dancers  Saturday, Feb. 12,1094  Dinner 5 pm  by Don Anderson  Economic development,  improved marketing and promo-  lion, and expansion of services  are just some of the challenges  facing Gordon L. Wilson, newly  elected president of the Sechelt  and District Chamber of Commerce.  "I'm looking forward to  increasing the volumes on the  Sunshine Coast through efficient marketing and promotion,"  Wilson said during an interview  Tuesday.  To say Wilson is ecstatic  aboul his new role with the  Chamber would be an understatement. He recognizes the  countless challenges lhal stand  before him and is prepared to  meet them head on, albeit prudently.  One of his first tasks will be  to address Ihe Chamber's efforts  in promotion of tourism on the  Coasl.  The Chamber has been  preparing a feasibility sludy to  set up an umbrella organization  that would control the existing  tourist information centres and  put together a marketing and  promotional "arm" for the  Coast.  Wilson's personal objective  is the elimination of duplication  of tourist information centres  and services from Gibsons to  Pender Harbor.  "We are all coming up with  the same brochures, carrying out  the same administrative functions...it's a duplication of services and a waste of money," he  said.  "It's time to streamline that  and gel everything under one  roof. I'm not saying the tourist  information centres, we should  leave them in the key locations.  It's just the administration."  The perception of residents is  money talks  Mayor Earl Basse Joins 1994 Stchelt Chamber Board of Directors.

"It's lime to get progressive,  not careless." Our transportation  on the Sunshine Coast is an area  that we really have to push. I  would like to get on the backs of  the Ministry of Transportation  and ram that bypass through.  "We need it desperately, we  ' need it for the near future, not  10-15 years down the road."  When it comes to addressing  economic development, Wilson  expects the chamber to be an  obvious leader.  The economic development  committee will be financed  through a percentage of the  business licence fees collected  from business owners in Sechelt  "That is our mandate, to promote or influence economic  development within the district  of Sechelt," he said.  Last  year, the  chamber  received 1,300 new business  inquiries.  The chamber is also attempting to fix its relationship with  the Gibsons Chamber of Commerce, a relationship that has  been described as "rocky" at  best.  "We have a basic working  relationship now, especially  through the tourism issue. We  both stand to gain or benefit  from a real cohesive effort in  terms of tourism in general," he  said.  8 pm  Bus Transportation available  Reservations recommended  883-2298  You can't invest without  incurring risk.

Cedar's Inn Meeting Room #1  fi  Bring your  questions!,  sponsored by:     Everybody Welcome.  j��3   Buckerfield's  to retire before 65, the fact lhal  we now live longer than pasl I  generations means that our jj  retirement savings may have lo j  last 25-30 yean or even longer.  Thus, one of the biggest risks  loday is not whether you will  lose your capital but whether  you will outlive it.  In this context, your investing equation becomes one of  determining how much is  "enough" to support your future  needs.  Can you preserve your capital by investing in guaranteed  securities and still have enough?  Or do you have to put some of  your capital al risk to earn more  and thereby reduce the risk of  outliving your savings?  It is very difficult to make  reliable projections 20 or 30 or  more years into the future. So it  follows that it is difficult to  make investment decisions  based on such projections.  The way to start is to look at  your current investing program,  whether inside or outside an  RRSP. And the first thing lo  consider is how much risk to  capital you can tolerate.  Generally, over the long  term, the more risk to capital  you take, the more you will earn  on your investments.  This means investing some  of your capital in most mutual  funds, stocks, longer-term  bonds, real estate or even commodities, rather than in guaranleed securities.  You won't discover your  risk comfort level overnight.  But gauging how well you sleep  at night is a time-honoured  method of determining your tolerance to risk. How much of  your total capital must you have  invested in guaranteed securities  to ensure a good night's sleep?  Once you have decided this, you  should consider investing the  rest less conservatively. Of  course, you will have to find a  risk comfort level you can tolerate with these other investments,  loo.  It may take a year or two to  fine tune your investments and  find the proper risk balance, but  once you do, you can estimate  the total earnings rate of your  portfolio and make your projections. Only then will you be able  to determine if your retirement  objectives and your investment  program match up.

Occupants  escaped safely but lost all their possessions  in the blaze.  The dock at Gramma's Pub was a casualty to the recent high winds in the area.   *  10 YEARS AGO  In a unique and unprecedented ceremony  at his home in Roberts Creek, author Hubert  Evans was awarded an honourary doctor of  laws degree by chancellor Paul Cote and  president Robert Saywell in the presence of  another noted author, Margaret Laurence.  It was the first time a Simon Fraser University honourary degree was awarded off  campus.  Six officials from the SCRD board were  off to Victoria to talk with municipal minister Bill Ritchie about park financing and  water systems.  15 YEARS AGO  Rick Scott and Joe Mock performed to a  capacity crowd in Roberts Creek hall last  weekend. The dance was held in support of  Ihe proposed Eileen Glassford Theatre project.  A semi-trailer went over the bank after it  collided with a pickup on an icy road last  week. The driver received only minor  injuries.  25 YEARS AGO  All types of building construction in the  regional district area for 1973 soared to a  record high of $6,887,200. This included  289 family homes.  Hon. Isabel Dawson offered praise to the  highway crews during her reply in the  speech from the throne debate.  She said, "This year more than ever, I  wonder how many of these crews have been  engaged in the seemingly endless battle of  clearing our roads, while you and I were  enjoying the warmth and comfort of our  homes."  35 YEARS AGO  Betly Phillips and Ernie Prentice were  featured vocalists in a series of concerts  sponsored by the Peninsula Overture Concert Association.  m  V   r*   ���  n  l  n I      % w M  91       R  E  W  I  \J  ft*  M  L      V  I   9   I   R  I  W   I  _wsmmm  ROYAL TERRACES BUILDING, 5177 WHARF RD  BOX 800, VON 3AO  MONDAY, FEBRUARY 7,1994  UPCOMING MEETINGS  Outdoor Recreation Advisory Committee  Tuesday, February 8th at 6:45 p.m.  Regular Board  Thursday, February 10th at 7:30 p.m.  Forest Advisory Committee  Tuesday, February 1 Sth at 7:00 p.m.  Economic Development Committee  Thursday, February 17th at 9:30 p.m.  Development Services Committee  Thursday, February 17th at 2:00 p.m.  Planning Committee  Thursday, February 17th to follow Development Services  Art* Liaison and Support Committee  Friday, February 18th at 2:00 p.m.  USED VEHICLE FOR SALE  ONE USED 1984 FORD F600 CAB AND CHASSIS TRUCK ���  AS IS  To view, please contact the S.C.R.D.

So Ministry of Highways and Transportation projects manager Leagh  Marlell will meet with the association  Feb. 9 at Langdale Elementary School.  "It's strictly to do with the ferry terminal expansion and intersection," said  WHSEA president Daphne Avis.  Project manager Leagh Martell to speak  at Langdale Elementary school  Association members are concerned  about mounting traffic problems in the  Langdale area, especially since the Hillside Marine barge facility opened and  want to see some progress "before  another tourist season begins."  "That (barge terminal) is bringing  reams of traffic through this area," Avis  said.  WHSEA director Sam  Macey said the meeting  will deal strictly with the  topics mentioned by Avis  and not about the issues  they're currtntly discussing wilh BC  Ferries Corporation.  "We don't care aboul Payne or Henry  Roads," Macey said.  What the association wants to see is  the completion of the section of the  bypass already partly completed.  "Let's get it done" so people can use  it, Macey said.

Jim Davidson, media relation officer for the Ministry of  Transportation and Highways,  said Wednesday the ministry  will release its recommendations this week to Gibsons town  council and the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD). The  recommendations will outline  the route the government feels  best suited for the bypass.  Davidson declined comment  on what those recommendations  might be. But, he added, "nothing is caste in stone." A final  decision by the ministry has yet  to be made.  Along with the recommendations, the ministry will also  release a summation of concerns and opinions expressed by  Coast residents regarding the  bypass. Davidson said the ministry received 116 public submissions before the Jan. 15  deadline.  Currently the bypass is considered the "road to nowhere."  Highways has spent an estimated $11 million on the project.  To date, construction on the  bypass remains unfinished.  The plan is to re-route feny  traffic from the Langdale terminal through to either Payne or  Henry Road in Gibsons and out  to Highway 101.  Payne and Henry Road residents have argued neither road,  in rural areas west of Gibsons,  is acceptable as a connector to  the highway.  Many have suggested Conrad Road as a suitable option  for the connector.  Conrad Road is also the preferred option of Ihe SCRD.  At last Thursday's board  meeting, SCRD directors  agreed to write a letter to the  highways ministry suggesting  the bypass run "at least as far as  Conrad (Road), if not further."  Meanwhile, Davidson said  il's unknown how much money  will be available lo complete  the Gibsons bypass project in  the coming fiscal year.  He said there is little indication the ministry will be  increasing funding levels lo  highways projects.
