Joel Johnstone photo  Chaudiere a learning experience, says Straith  Jay Straith brought more sinking news to the Sechelt and  District Chamber of Commerce Thursday.      Joel Johnstone pholo  by Don Anderson  The sinking of the Chaudiere  could have been better handled, if  only from a public relations  standpoint.  "We didn't do a good enough  job explaining it up front to people," admitted Jay Straith, president of the Artificial Reef Society  of B.C., during last Thursday's  (March 17) Sechelt Chamber of  Commerce luncheon.  "Non-divers don't understand  artificial reefs," Straith said,  adding that this "misunderstanding" spawned negative public  reaction and environmental fears  about the sinking of the vessel.  Timing of Ihe next sinking has  not been determined, but Straith  said the society is ensuring that it  won't be as much of a surprise to  residents and environmentalists as  the Chaudiere was.  "In all honesty, what may have  happened with the Chaudiere is it  happened all too quick," he said.  "We haven't made any commitment to anything yet...we are  just looking and asking a lot of  questions." The society is currently reviewing sites between Powell  River and Thormanby Island for  the creation of a second artificial  reef off the Sunshine Coast.  If a suitable site is found, it  would likely become the home of  the HMCS Cape Breton, measuring 520 ft in length, 60 ft wide  and 85 ft high. The vessel was  previously used as a maintenance  and supply ihip during World  War II.  Straith said eight Chaudiere  vessels could fit into the Cape  Breton. The society is also considering sinking the 200-ft Sea  Shepherd. "We are telling people  not to worry about the size of the  ship, worry about the site," he  said. "The Cape Breton is prior-  ized for the Sunshine Coast but if  I can't find a suitable site, I'll  have to look elsewhere."  During his presentation to the  chamber, Straith outlined the successes of the G.V. Church artificial reef off the coast of Sydney.  "The basic thing with an artificial reef is, to get it to work, it  must attract invertebrate life," he  said.  Environmental assessments  and monitoring of artificial reefs  have turned up no evidence that  they have negative impacts on  marine life. In fact, Straith said, it  is quite the opposite.  In the case of the G.V. Church,  the ship was covered with barnacles after lha first anniversary of  its sinking. Eventually rock fish,  carp, Ihe rarely seen swimming  scallop, link cod and more  advanced forms of marine life,  including octopus, look up residence on the ship. "One of the  problems we have with artificial  reefs is ihey are just too damn  successful," Straith said.  Of late, the society has been  lobbying the federal government  to change its fisheries legislation  to protect artificial reefs from  fishing boats attempting to cash in  on Ihe reefs' bounty of marine  life.  Gibsons wants more police to fight rising crime rate  by Ian Cobb  Gibsons town council plans to  press the RCMP Vancouver Subdivision to assign more staff to  the local detachment.  After hearing a monthly  report from Gibsons RCMP  detachment Cpl. Robin Blair  March 15, mayor Eric Small suggested the town write a letter to  Vancouver subdivision superintendent David Cowley, asking  him to consider bolstering the  detachment's roster of officers.  "In the lighl of the serious and  time-consuming files, we should  consider writing to the RCMP"  superintendent, Small said.  At Ihe outset of his report,  Cpl. Blair informed council that  the number of members on  active duly al Ihe detachment  was nine for the month of February and Ihose on duly had to  crank it up another notch as the  number of calls into the detachment are up, as are the number of  files.  "For Ihe year lo date, our file  volume is up 14 per cent and our  crime files cases are at 263 for  January and February, compared  to 192 in (Ihe same time period  in) 1993," Blair said.  "These figures have added a  substantial workload," Blair said.  In addition, the violent crime  rate, which includes assaults and  sexual assaults, has more than  doubled.  Blair said the detachment has  handled 36 violent crime files so  far this year, compared to 17 lasl  year.  Councillor Ted Hume asked  Blair if the increase in crime is  indicative of the rising population on the Sunshine Coast and in  Gibsons; ihe corporal responded,  "It is." Blair also noted that he's  watched the crime stats for ihe  detachment increase "every  monlh since I've been here."  Blair has been posted in Gibsons  since September 1992.  The increases are figured out  by comparing Jan. 1993 to Jan.  1994 and so on, Blair explained.  "It's a phenomenal increase  and it's been pretty steady."  An alarming aspect of the  increase in violent crimes is thai  they usually don't occur too  often in Ihe first quarter of the  year (Jan. to March), Blair said.  The 36 incidents already  reported and under investigation  amount to 24 per cenl of the  1993 yearly total of 152. That  figure was a marked increase  over the 103 incidents reported  in 1992.  Gibsons council's letter  requesting more officer power  won't take the subdivision office  by surprise as a study looking  into whether or not Ihe Gibsons  area requires additional staff was  conducted and completed in January.  And the results of the study  noted Ihe detachment could use  "two more on-road resources  (officers) to bring us up to  provincial standards," Blair said.  Along with the study noting  that two more officers are needed, the findings came as a result  of rising crime statistics, traffic  volumes, population figures and  the size of the detachment area  from 1992.  Blair pointed oul that criminal  offence statistics were 20 per  cenl higher in 1993 and Ihe current trend points to statistics  being much higher in 1994 ���  meaning Ihe need for more officers may rise from two.  The decision lo assign more  police officers is up to the  provincial attorney general's  office and not Ihe Vancouver  Subdivision or Gibsons detachment, "ll would be nice to get  those two men," Blair said.  Right now, the nine to 10 officers working out of the Gibsons  detachment office are carrying  about 30 cases each. And Ihose  are the ones they're working on  "before they walk in the door,"  Blair said. Neither does that  number take into account the  calls the officers have to respond  to every shift.  Blair said there could be any  number of reasons for the rise in  violent crimes.  "It's difficult to say why certain things are up," he said. The  increases could be the result of  more people reporting incidents,  or of an increase in the population of the detachment area and  downturns in Ihe economy.  Drugs may also have a part to  play in the rise in violence, Blair  said. "There's quite a drug problem in the community which has  a spin-off effect."  A rise in property thefts to  help people purchase or trade for  drugs is a possibility, Blair said.  BC Ferries plans extra summer sailings  BC Ferries Corporation is  adding a late sailing to the Queen  of Cowichan's summer schedule.  Starling June 24, a 10:10 p.m.  sailing from Langdale to Horseshoe Bay will be added, as will  an 11 p.m. sailing from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale. The extra  sailing is a response to requests  from Sunshine Coast residents  and visitors, according to a press  release from the crown corporation.  The late sailings will only  apply lo Thursday, June 30, Fridays, Sundays and holiday Mondays, BC Ferries says.  The Sunday night sailing is  already in place.  However, below the new  schedule is the disclaimer lhat  "schedules subject to change  without notice."  An extra summer-schedule  sailing will be added to the Earls  Cove-Sallery Bay route as well.  A 1:30 p.m. departure from  Saltery Bay .ind a 2:30 p.m.  departure from Earls Cove will  also come into effect June 24.  Gibsons-area man  beaten and robbed  by Ian Cobb  A Gibsons-area man was roused from his sleep, beaten and robbed  of a small amount of cash and drugs, says a March 14 police report.  The unnamed middle-aged man told Gibsons detachment RCMP  lhat he was asleep in bed at aboul 9 pm when he awoke to find two or  three masked assailants trying to smother him wilh a pillow and bind  his hands and feel.  After a struggle, the man was struck on Ihe head with what he  believed to be a rock.  The man told police the blow rendered him unconscious and while  he was out, a small amount of money and marijuana were stolen from  his home, located on the Port Mellon Highway.  The fact that the victim reported he had some drugs stolen makes  the case a little unusual, said RCMP Corp. Robin.  "It's something different to report and it's something that occurs  more often than you hear of," he said.  But violence in connection with drugs isn't unusual, Ihe corporal  said.  "He's lucky he wasn't badly hurt."  The man was nol hospitalized.  "You have to wonder if he was involved in the illicit sale of  drugs," Blair said. "But lhal, of course, is just speculation."  If he was, it's possible the assailants may have targeted the victim,  knowing he had bolh money and drugs.  Because the Iwo or three assailants were wearing masks police  couldn't obtain a description.  _______U  ____________  -U- Coast News, March 21, 1994  Spring Is Here!

VON 3AO  West Sechelt Community Association  Information mooting with McMillan Bloedel  Tuesday, March 29th, 1994 at 7:00 p.m. at West Sechelt Elementary School  Don't miss this special meeting  ias never  O'JflllllllW  Don Anderson pholo  Private  school  on hold  for now  by Don Anderson  Whatever it takes, the Sunshine Coast will have an  expanded privale school.  That is the message from  Ivan Fox, pastor of Ihe New  Life Christian Fellowship,  which is currently pursuing the  development of a 100-150 student private school in Sechelt.  The project has been held up  for several years as a result of  revisions made to Sechelt's  Official Community Plan. Rezoning of the property designated for the school won't likely be  addressed until after the adoption of the revised community  PUn-,"   ',',  '    ���. w.    '  For Fox, (he wait  t&eiMbi&frustratitig .  'A'(The project) has actually  beep sitting for two years now,"  Fox said.  "It's got to happen somewhere, somehow. Whether it's  in Sechelt or Roberts Creek, we  are going to build somewhere."  New Life Christian Fellowship has targeted five acres in  Sechelt below the ice arena on  Reef Road for the development  of a school, running track, playing fields and parkland.  If re-zoning is approved, Ihe  building could be in place within 10 weeks and in time for the  1994-95 school year. The project will cosl roughly $250,000  to complete, with private donors  providing much of the funding.  The Christian school has  been on the Coast for about 12  years, initially operating out of  Gibsons before moving to  Sechelt for four years. It has  since moved back to Gibsons on  Kiwanis Way.  "The school has grown consistently since ils inception.  Right now we're around 87  (students)," Fox said.  Whal makes the private  school different from a public  school is its attempts to deal  wilh more "character qualities"  and take a different approach  "on how lo train the children,"  Fox said.  When the project was first  proposed, it received considerable criticism from owners of  neighboring properties wanting  to preserve the area's residential  characteristics.  "We really want to work  with the local neighborhood  ihere. If, after going through  and talking to everybody and  the people just don't want it  there, we will have to look  somewhere else," said Fox.  Bob Johnstone, superintendent of School District 46, said  the development of private  schools on the Coast is  inevitable as parents search for  more educational opportunities  for iheir children.  "People are looking for different ways to satisfy their  needs. It's very difficult to have  one thing for all and I think it is  incumbent for us lo address  lhal," he said.  "I guess my only concern is I  worry aboul sociely fragmentation."  by Don Anderson  Some Sechell residents are not  about to give up the fight to save  lands adjacent to Teredo Street  and Inlet Avenue from the clutches of a local developer.  The lands, often referred to as  Trail Bay Park, have been targeted for a multi-use development  by property owner Jeffrey Tong.  But residents attending last  week's District of Sechelt council  meeting have something different  in mind. "We now give you a  further chance to beautify the  town," resident Jerry Houle said  during his brief address before  council.  Houle, a member of the Trail  Bay Protection Society, was one  of seven residents who took their  plea for parkland preservation to  the municipality March 16. Houle  said members of the society  would like to meet with council  to find a way of purchasing the  land from Ihe developer.  "There's too much talk that it  is going to cost too much but  there are other ways to  fundraise," Houle said.  The society has accumulated  440 signatures of residents supporting the preservation of the  lands for a waterfront park.  "There is strong support in the  community for a park and we  intend to build on that support  and keep it alive," Houle said.  He said many municipalities  "are kicking themselves" for not  taking the opportunity of acquiring waterfront property when  they had the chance.  Nancy Baker, an 18-year resident of the Coast, said park land is  essential for addressing the health  needs of the community, particularly the problem of isolation.  "Those small effects make the difference in health costs," Baker  said. "There is nothing simpler  than preserving something we  already have and nothing greater."  Gilbert Joe of the Sechelt Indian Band presented a brief history  of the land, the number of times it  changed hands, and how each  owner still managed to leave the  land in its natural state.  "In my own personal opinion,  a park on the waterfront would  certainly give prestige to the  Sechelt community," Joe said.  Council did nol address the  future of the park at last week's  meeting but it "will certainly take  into consideration all the comments made," said Mayor Earl  Basse.  The developer's recent proposal ��� to build 48 residential units  in three separate apartment buildings of three storeys and 15 units  each, two lownhouses in a separate building, and an apartment  complex built above 3,300 square  feet of commercial space ��� was  rejected by the planning committee last month.

Local IWA representative  Murray Cantelon met with staff  from MacBlo last week to discuss union concerns that the  312-acre proposed housing  development will cut long-term  jobs from the logging market.  Should the property be developed, "it can only be logged  once," said Cantelon.  The MacBlo property in  West Sechelt was originally purchased in the 1950s and has  been used as a private tree farm.  The company announced its  intentions to develop the land  last summer.  Cantelon said MacBlo has  agreed to "put something back"  lo loggers who may be affected  by its development proposal and  company officials have  promised financial support to  industrial retraining programs.  Cantelon said there is a  growing concern in the union  that as the population increases  and spreads out from the town  centre, more pressure will be put  on logging companies like  MacBlo to sell Iheir forestry  holdings in favour of housing  developments.  In an interview last year,  MacBlo executive Charlie Bur-  rell said no active logging has  been taking place on the West  Sechell property. The second-  growth mix of Douglas fir, hemlock and cedar on the site is  between 60 and 70 years old and  worth an estimated $500,000-  $750,000, said Burrell.  Recreational facilities  go before regional board  The developmeni of a multi-  use recreational facility will need  the support of all Sunshine Coast  taxpayers, not just Sechelt and  Gibsons taxpayers.  That was just one of the conclusions lhat came out of lasl  Tuesday's (March 15) Sunshine  Coasl Recreation Commission  meeting in Sechelt.  "My ultimate concern is if we  can sell it to the taxpayers," said  Walter Tripp, president-elect of  the Sunshine Coast Minor Hockey Association. Tripp was on  hand at the meeting to present his  plan for the implementation of a  second sheet of ice in Sechelt,  which he believes is essential to  meet the growing demands of the  hockey association.  Although he favors a second  sheet of ice buill onto the existing arena in Sechelt, Tripp said  "we will skate wherever we can  find a second sheel of ice."  For its part, the Sunshine  Coast Recreation Complex Soci  ety also made its plea to the commission, asking for support in  developing a centrally located  regional recreation complex.  "Residents can no longer wait  another four years...we all recognize that the need for a recreation complex is now," said Ann  Hayward, president of the sociely.  Ed Stevens, representing the  Gibsons parks and recreation  committee, said that town's pool  must not be overlooked in the  planning for additional recreational facilities.  "These are the questions we  are asking���what is the future of  existing facilities?" Stevens said.  "I'm in total favor of building  just a complex," said Sechelt  Indian chief Garry Feschuk. "We  offered our land to get the ball  rolling." The commission did not  make a recommendation as to  which group or plan lo support,  bul will continue to review the  information provided.  ^m  ______  ��� Coast News, March 21, 1994  news  T*ia��a*&5k%&m  tm*t%tmm- ��� ���%g5s^Aw*��M����g3& *-���. - - .^.��>-~~ ������    "-  Jet skiing in the Gibsons Harbour area is currently under municipal review.  Joel Johnstone pholo  Jet skiers anger waterfront residents  Gibsons town council wants  jet ski operators out of Gibsons  Harbour.  Council addressed the issue  March 15 during a regular meeting after receiving several letters  from residents living beside or  near the harbour.  "The extreme noise, the very  definite threat to all other boaters  and swimmers and their disastrous effect on sea birds and  marine creatures in the area must  be considered," Ann Pinsonnault  wrote in a letter to council.  She also expressed concerns  about the inevitability of an accident happening if jet ski operators are allowed to continue riding around in the harbour.  Another letter from Yvonne  Bain noted that jet skis create "a  constant barrage of noise."  In response to Pinsonnault's  letter, town administrator Dan  Legg wrote that the town has  been "actively seeking a solution  to the problem of jet skis in the  harbour."  Some of the efforts being  made by the town include a  request to the federal govern  ment to have the Coast Guard  prohibit the operation of jet skis  "within 100 metres of the shore  for the length of Gibsons shoreline."  Legg said the Coast Guard  has "endorsed" this request and  is working toward changing the  necessary legislation "to implement this prohibition."  In addition, Ihe Coast Guard  and the RCMP Marine Division  have agreed to keep an eye on  the use of jet skis in the harbour  during the summer and the Coast  Guard will post signs detailing  safe boating procedures and the  location of prohibited areas. The  signs will be posted at the public  launch ramp.  Finally, the RCMP Marine  Division is "prepared to hold a  public information meeting for  the benefit of operators of jet  skis," Legg said.  Mayor Eric Small said the  prohibition of jet skis doesn't  mean the operators can't launch  their craft in the harbour.  "They will have a channel  from the launch pad to the open  water," he said.  Sechelt development carries concerns  by Don Anderson  Extensive development of  Sechelt will have negative  impacts on Ihe environment and  increase social service needs,  say some residents.  Nancy Baker of the Sunshine  Coast Community Services  Society believes it is important  to "make the government bodies  aware of what the implications  are and the needs for a social  Wharf Street, which underwent major construction in 1993, may  face additional work this year. file photo  planner" as the area grows and  develops. "We do have to lake  inlo consideration what social  issues are going to happen. People suffer stress when there is  growth and change," Baker said,  when asked about Ihe impacts of  projected growth on the Coast.  At present, the centre is over-1  whelmed with clients and its  case load is continually expanding. Operating with two volunteers on staff only serves to further limit the centre's ability to  address the needs of residents.  "We're running right off priority. If somebody is phoning in  with a crisis they are getting our  attention right away and anything else is...I can't honestly  say we'll gel back to you right  away," Baker said.  "We're really overwhelmed.  We're working a lot of overtime  these days just to keep on top of  things. That's a social implication in itself."  Baker said there is more  demand on social services "than  Ihere ever has been." The solution to the centre's own problems in providing adequate service would be to hire additional  staff, she said.  But Ihe amount of time and  paperwork involved in hiring  staff only further detracts from  the amount of time available to  provide services.  On the environmental side,  Tony Greenfield of the Sechelt  'Marsh ProtectfrPW Society  believes development of Sechelt  I properties will haye impacts on  wildlife in the area.    ���"  "Obviously it will, but not  cataclysmic impacts. There's  nothing unique about these areas  that are going to be developed,"  he said.  Greenfield said the major  concern of the group is the Wilson Creek estuary, which is targeted for development by the  Sechelt Indian Band and  MacMillan Bloedel.  "We are certainly concerned  about the loss of habitat down  there and we are always concerned about the Caren Range  and Tetrahedron," he added.  "Those are three big issues in  my mind around here."  Naturalists have to focus in  on critical habitat loss and the  preservation of unique habitats  such as estuaries and wetlands,  Greenfield said.

So says secretary-treasurer to  the Sunshine Coast school dislricl, Tim Anderson, who predicts a $700,000 funding shortage "if we continue operating the  way we do now."  Anderson made the comment  in reference lo lasl week's word  from ihe Ministry of Education  announcing the 1994-95 district  education funding allotments.  The Sunshine Coast is slated  lo receive a total of $24,123,582  nexl year ��� an increase of  $650,826, or 2.77 per cenl, from  its 1993-94 funding.  Anderson said that funding  allotment actually amounts lo an  approximate two-per-cent  decrease in per-pupil spending  when the student growth of Ihe  school district is factored into the  equation.  The district is one of the  fastest-growing in the province,  expecting a four per cent growth  over the coming year.  "We're hoping the  public will help point  us in the right  direction'  -Bob Johnstone  That means roughly 160 more  kids in Ihe schools, more teachers to teach them, more support  staff and more education facilities.  Anderson said the district cannot run a deficit without permission from the ministry; even then  Ihe money is taken off the following year's block funding.  District superintendent Bob  Johnstone isn't saying yet how  he and his .staff will deal wilh  next year's projected deficit.  Johnstone said the school  board will be looking to the public, related unions and parents'  groups for input. "We're trying  now to sketch out different (budgetary) scenarios without solving  anything...we're hoping (Ihe  public) will help poinl us in the  right direction."  Johnstone said it's too soon to  say what effect the budget  announcement will have on  staffing levels and services.  As ministry dollars have  become fewer, the school district  has been attempting to streamline its services in an effort to  reduce costs.  With the elimination of a  senior administrative position  two years ago, the loss of three  full-lime leaching assistant positions last year as well as reduced  funding to general school, library  and custodial services, over $1  million has been saved.  A further $230,000 was  skimmed off the budget again  this year with no loss of jobs.  A NEWS STORY?

But if they are not getting that satisfaction, they might just  as well fade to black on their magazine ads and TV commercials, because they are not going to win this battle with  Greenpeace. They have already lost it, as the cancellation last  week of MacBlo's contracts to supply wood to Kleenex and  Scott Tissue in Britain clearly demonstrates. The ads now arc  nothing more than the industry quacking for its own benefit.  Whether or not Greenpeace told lies or damned lies, as the  BC government and the logging companies allege, or told the  unvarnished truth, as Greenpeace and its supporters suggest,  almost doesn't matter to the big picture and the long haul.  Don't misinterpret this as an endorsement of all of Greenpeace's tactics in this particular campaign. That organization  did some things it should be ashamed of. But then the same  could be said for the BC government and Canadian logging  companies.  What the forestry industry is trying to deny is that it has  lost, not only this battle, but the entire war. The success of the  Greenpeace campaign in Europe ��� approve it or not ��� has  demonstrated the vulnerability of the logging industry on the  world stage.  There is a way to remedy that ��� by accepting radical  changes that customers in Europe and environmentalists at  home are asking for, including an end to the practice of clear-  cutting in general and in Clayoquot in particular. Acceptance  of other restrictions now being proposed or put in place by  the provincial government might also help the industry's  image globally.  But seemingly unable or unwilling to read that writing on  the wall, the industry is operating on the "deny, deny, deny"  principle, and refusing to make the changes that in the long  term will take the targets off their backs on the global range.  Yes, it's true that some of the changes proposed by the  government and by opponents of the logging industry are  harsh medicine, indeed, and will result in the loss of some  jobs.  However, the alternative may prove even harsher medicine  S'.Uf Whihrinw ifcycott an industry, to insist on holding onto,  e old ways of harvesting trees if ultimately it can't sell the)  batvest? And what jobs will there be then for forestry industry workers? Will that be any better than accepting certain  restrictions now?  Denying won't do the job.. .for the industry or its workers.  Drugging the  computers  The provincial government wants to put everybody's prescriptions on one computer system to prevent prescription  drug abusers from getting multiple prescriptions?  This is not a good idea. If you want to put demonstrated,  convicted abusers on a list and circulate it to pharmacists,  that's one thing. But to list so many to catch so few? No.  Maybe the people who proposed this 'Big Brother' measure should have their prescriptions analyzed.

The meetings are held  Wednesdays at 7:30 pm in the  communily room (next to the fire  hall) on Chaster Road. For further information call 886-4885.  CATHIE ROY, membeship  vice president  Sunshine Toastmasters  Pool praise  As one of the users of our  newly renovated Gibsons Swimming Pool, may I applaud the  improvements lhat have been  made to Ihe facility. The many  people who are using the pool are  indicative of the popularity of  this sort of recreation or perhaps  to the growing population of our  area.  Those of us who have been  residents on the Sunshine Coast  for many years can recall the  building of the pool in Gibsons  (at no cost to the local taxpayers)  and can testify to the great pleasure it has brought to all ages.  We recall when swimming  lessons were held at local beaches and instructors and children  had to contend with tides and  inclement weather. Surely this  alone, when children newly learn  survival skills as well as swimming skills in a heated pool, has  been a great benefit to the youth  of our community. With emphasis on the importance of wellness  and fitness many adults of all  ages have used this way of keeping fit.  Some of our residents take  issue with the fact our pool does  not measure up to city size and  standards. Well, we are still a  rural community and striving lo  meet the needs of our growing  population. In the not loo distant  future, if trends cominue.'all sec-  tirtns of the coast may be served  to supplement services which we  now have in Gibsons and Pender  Harbour. In the interim, lei us  support those who have worked  and supported the upgrading of  the Gibsons Pool, live with its  inadequacies and be thankful we  have reached this stage of accommodation.  A special thank you to our  pool staff who work to make programs and schedules to accommodate all ages.  AGNES LABONTE  Gibsons  Misleading headline  I wish to draw your attention  to a completely misleading headline in the March 14 issue of the  Coast News which slates 'Survey  shows McDonald's supported.'

The chair,  trying to bring Ihe meeling back  to reality said, "That is political  and has to come from above." He  was not suggesting an appeal to  the almighty, but Ihis is perhaps  the only recourse we have.' aq  ilq We are landless in our own  country, we are as the aborigines,  dispossessed. We are treated Ss  recalcitrant consumers to be pacified and controlled. We are as  serfs, share-croppers, workers in  a company town. We are taxed to  the hilt and in debt to the company store.  Our country is denuded of  fish, trees and clean water. We  are expected to adjust and accept.  We are voiceless. Our shopper-  newspapers are nol owned locally  but are part of a global conglomerate. We are forced to accept  this pablum, subsidized by the  government and the multinationals. Al the top governments  cower. We have only civil disobedience. Protest. Heaven help  us!  BILL HALL  Sechelt  Of joyous commitment and removal of stage cobwebs  When Fran and I set out from the Coast just over  13 months ago, destination largely unknown, friend  Nutter speculated in his farewell column that yours  truly might fetch up playing Peer Gynt with some  desert drama club. Not quile, Stuart, but respectably  close.  Twenty years ago the Driftwood Players of Gibsons were a force to be reckoned with in provincial  theatre circles. Three times in five years. 1970-75,  Driftwood alumni breezed through to the provincial  finals in annual competition and three times took  lop acting honours in the province.  In 1975. after directing Oscar Wilde's Salome. I  decided to lake a year off, bought a faltering newspaper ai the end of that year and didn't direct another play till just lasl month, almost 19 years later. In  that period I acted in perhaps half a dozen productions, most memorably with directors Betty Keller  and Ted Price.  With these honourable exceptions it was a protracted fallow period covering a period when an  actor-director might reasonably expect lo have his  best years of mature energy. Ah well, and lack the  day.  This present oasis which I have been calling  home for just three months now has been a banquet  to the famished. Here they do some theatre, by God.  It's not just a mailer of public relations, petty politics and therapeutic carpentry.  As I write this, it is three months today since I  musings  arrived in this town. I am now in rehearsal for Joe  Orion's Entertaining Mr. Sloane, scheduled for production in three week's time. It is the fourth full  scale stage production I have been involved with in  three months.  Three weeks after my arrival I was playing  assorted angels, servants and party-goers in a  Christmas compendium called Angels and Awakening.  From that I got the role of Froggy LeSeur in  Larry Shue's The Foreigner and was still in performance in that role when I was asked in an emergency to direct Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance,  not the vehicle I would have chosen to gently wipe  away the cobwebs of 19 inactive years.  The Albee play was a few days from opening  when I auditioned for and got the role of Kemp in  Joe Orion's blackest of the black comedies.  Let me just say a word about the people. This  refuge from the insane asylum much of North  John burnside  America is becoming has drawn refugees from all  parts of the theatre world. The lead role in A Delicate Balance was taken by a man who spent 25  years on Broadway.  The director of Entertaining Mr. Sloane is a  most marvellously talented and genuine actor/writer  who used to own his own theatre and company in  Carmel, California. In addition, the place bristles  with strong and talented ladies of the theatre.  Nor does this recounting of the spate of theatrical activity exhaust itself with full onstage productions.  They have evolved here a Play Readers group  which every two weeks presents a dramatized reading of a full length play. Last nighl I made my  debut in this amazing art form, reading one of the  role's in Harold Pinter's Betrayal.  I say amazing for with only five or six rehearsals  and charging entrance by donation these talented  performers fill the local hall to which it is easy to  forget the actors have scripts in their hands.  All in all, an astonishing level of theatrical activity.  Fran, incidentally, has just about been as busy as  I. She loo played assorted bits in Angels and Awakenings; did props for The Foreigner and starred in A  Delicate Balance - no, I didn't do the casting, jusl  the directing - and was first in the family on stage  wilh the Play Readers in January in a starring role  in Neil Simon's Lasl of the Red Hoi Lovers.  Nor is this peculiar in this place. It is just a regular winter season for these theatre folk.  Oh, in addition to all of the above there is an  informal group which meels to read the Shakespeare plays twice a month. One night I looked at  the fly leaf of ihe script I was holding and found it  dedicated to the Shakespeare readers of Such and  Such by Allen Ginsberg in 1952.  For those with an active and real interest in community theatre there may be a few ideas in ihe foregoing which will help to create and maintain a  dynamic and interesting level of activity, rewarding  and enriching to participants and community alike.  I simply have never met so many theatrically literate people and the high level of theatrical literacy  and sophistication Is directly related to Ihe high  level of challenging activity normal here.  There are all manner of querulous reasons for  stale inactivity. Joyous commitment is ils own  reward. Break a leg, folks.

She was undertaking a run to  Desolation Sound to pick up  18,000 pounds of salmon.  The fish packer was built by  Pender Harbour Boatworks for  owner/operator Helge Vedde.  The local Gibsons/Langdale  bus came to grief lasl week in an  accident on Gower Point Road  which saw it land on its side in a  ditch. Fortunately Ihere were no  passengers aboard and no  injuries to the driver.  10 YEARS AGO  Mill manager Harry Cargo is  cautiously optimistic about the  future of Canfor's Port Mellon  mill in a speech lo the Gibsons  and District Chamber of Commerce. The mill is presently  involved in a labour dispute.  L&K Lumber is declared  bankrupt. Huge trading losses  over 1982 and 1983 are the  given reason.  Suncoast Cedar Products  claim they could hire 30 more  workers at their mill if they  could get a steady supply of  wood.  Citing pressing personal concerns, school board chairman  Warren McKibbin resigns and is  replaced by Don Douglas.  15 YEARS AGO  The commemoration of Gibsons 50th anniversary as an  incorporated village was a most  happy occasion.  The sun shone on a hazy blue  day, the speeches were short,  the band played well and the  cake was excellent.  Bill Rayment conducted the  Elphinstone Band on the roof of  the museum, Bruno Gerussi and  Robert Clothier combined to  read the proclamation of the Sea  Cavalcade beard-growing contest and Don Lockstead was on  hand to dispense the commemorative scroll and anniversary  coins.  25 YEARS AGO  Monday was election day at  the Sechelt Indian Band Lands.  Henry Paul was chosen as chief.  The current display of graphic art at the Sunshine Coast Art  Council's gallery in Sechelt  could be described as a serious  study of what is considered a  frivolous and perhaps aimless  occupation ��� doodling.  45 YEARS AGO  Three men with guns, a man  with two dogs, and a food-  stocked trap failed to catch a  Wilson Creek cougar. The  cougar made off with the food  from the trap.

And if you lire of that,  perhaps you would try having a  go at motherhood next.  I'm sure Gordon Pollock will  already have been welcomed  aboard by the rest of the merry  band wilh anti-SPCA chips on  their shoulders. I'll nol bother to  reply in any great detail lo  his...half truths and innuendo.  It's a game I can't win. Try to  come up wilh a reasoned  response and up pops another  accusation.  If it isn't howling at the shelter, it's poisoning the water supply. If il isn't spreading animal  disease, it's deliberately and calculatingly adopting out killer  dogs. Things will quiel down for  a while and we think, "Now at  least we can concentrate our  energies on running Ihe shelter  and providing the other services  in our mandate." And then  wham. Another negative letter or  petition.   ���'    ���  Forget the careless people  who let their dogs roam freely.  Their attacks on domestic pets,  farm animals and no doubt,  humans, seldom get reported.  Forget the service which Ihe  SPCA is providing Ihe community by accepting and evaluating  each one delivered to us by the  dog control officers. After all, the  SPCA is a handier target than  sometimes unidentifiable owners.  What I, who have the privilege of presiding over a wonderful, dedicated and hard-working  group of people, bolh volunteers  and staff, find insulting is Ihe  accusation of an "irresponsible  altitude of the local SPCA executive."  Then ihere is the oblique but  nevertheless damaging naming of  names. Nearly all our board  members are also hard-working  volunteers. It is thanks lo ihem  and others, that we can claim,  after opening our shelter only 10  months ago, lhal we are running  an extremely efficient shelter  operation. Yes, of course, Ihere  will be occasional glitches. After  all, we live on planet Earth. But  to paint a picture of carelessly,  callously and deliberately adopting out dangerous dogs jusl to get  rid of them is an insult.

BERNARD McGRATH,  President  Sunshine Coast SPCA  Quit knocking SPCA  When are the knockers going  lo quit? When someone goes to  the SPCA lo pick put a pet (be it  a cat or a dog) don't they understand they are responsible for that  pet? Why do they accept a dog  that has problems, if they don't  want to lake care of that problem?  The SPCA tells them (Ihe dog  in this case) it doesn't get along  with other dogs. So the owner  lets it out to be on its own and  it's into trouble. People like Mr.  Pollock blame Ihe SPCA instead  of the new owners.  Mr. Pollock finds the SPCA  offensive because they ask for  donations and grants to survive.  Well I find Mr. Pollock and all  the dog breeders (like himself)  who sell dogs to people who let  them roam free to breed indiscriminately without thought of  the consequences offensive.  Where do many of the purebreds  and mixed breeds end up? If Ihey  are lucky, at the SPCA!  We have had pets, dogs and  cats, for 53 years. None of our  dogs have run free to fight or  bite. They have been spayed and  neutered and been loving pets  and companions al all limes.  We need Ihe SPCA and the  lost and hurl animals need the  SPCA to care for them. Lay the  blame al the right door, Mr. Pollock! "The irresponsible owners."  God Mew the SPCA  F.MULLEN  Gibsons  On dog attacks...  The attitude of the SPCA's  shelter manager Clint Davy and  some of the directors towards  dangerous animals was one of  the issues which led to our resignation from the local board.  Their approach is lo keep animals  alive at any cost, including  threats to public safely. There  have been several instances of  this perverse attitude.  We deeply regret the grievous  harm that was done to Ihe lab  owned by ihe Nicholbys. Howev  er, we believe that more attacks  like this are inevitable. The question must be raised: Will there  have to be an actual killing of a  child or animal by a dangerous  dog adopted out by the SPCA  before the current management  changes its willful mind-set and  accepts that a dog of unpredictable disposition is literally a  time-bomb set for a tragedy  which could have been avoided?  The SPCA's annual general  meeting will take place April 10.  There is therefore an appropriate  lime for fresh faces to come forward, and we urge interested  SPCA members to stand for election to the SPCA's board of  directors. Desperately needed on  this board are men and women  wilh a true sense of responsibility  towards both humans and animals.

We don't understand the purpose and function of whal Advisory Planning Committees are  about based on our experience  last night al our First APC meeting. If this is democracy, perhaps  we would rather live in a benevolent dictatorship.  We know we live in the District of Sechelt. The area in question is directly adjacent to  Sechelt and is administered by  SCRD (Area B). We have a legitimate concern about Sechelt and  the inlet with respecl to this burn  site. The SCRD Advisory Planning Committee was asked to  make comments to the Ministry  of Environment regarding this  issue. We were surprised to find  that the APC were not well  informed to make a decision  (which was postponed), of which  we thought we were a part of on  Ihis issue, and were well prepared to make a presentation  based on our concerns and facts  as we know them.  Hand-delivered letters were  provided prior to the meeting  Dominique's  School of dance  would like bo congratulate the following  students who will be taking the  Bqyal Academy of Dancing Examination  Chatyjwte Carriveau ��� Danielle Frazer  Felice Gorman ��� Karla Hearthe  Kirsten Hearthe ��� Amanda Jones  Kel��ey l/etham ��� Kendra McDonald  Holly Morgan ��� Elizabeth Morrison  Amanda Stefanuk  which the committee appeared to  have no knowledge of.  Again, to our surprise, we  were not allowed lo make a presentation, nor were we permitted  to speak at all, even though three  APC members requested we  make our presentation or comment. This was rejected, and as  far as we know, the rejection was  because we don't live in Area B,  though we are directly affected  by their decision.  Mr. Stockwell was invited to  present and comment on his  application to this same APC but  he was out of town for two  weeks.We are aware that the District of Sechell is paying inlo  planning services (SCRD) for  things that affect the whole Coast  ($600,000); therefore we should  be able to have a say on what  happens locally.  Our tax dollars contribute to  these SCRD planning committees. We were there in good faith  to participate in the democratic  process and be a part of the solution as concerned citizens. This is  not the kind of treatment one  would expect from an elected  official at their first involvement  al the committee level.  We suggest that APC meetings should be covered by the  press and open to the publicwho  are, where appropriate, able to  speak.

They  have included the 312-acre subdivision for West Sechelt by  MacMillan Bloedel. The  MacMillan Bloedel subdivision  and some of the others have  emphasized small lots and/or  high-density housing.  For Ihis community (the Sunshine Coast) lo agree to these  many high-density developmeni  proposals would be in direct contravention of ihe voiced concerns  of citizens of the Coasl who participated in ihe Healthy Communities Projeci in 1992.  In thai sludy over 800 adults  and over 900 youth were asked  aboul Iheir vision of a healthy  Sunshine Coast. This large sample of Sunshine Coast residents  provided over 6,000 statements  about what ihey wanted and  didn't want to see in our community. No one in that study said  lhat they were looking for the  presence of high-density housing, small lots or an increase in  townhouse development.  Rather they assertively and  frequently voiced the opposite  opinion. To quote from the  Healthy Communities report:  "...the Sunshine Coast needs lo  develop a clear picture of what it  wants to look like in the future  and develop a planning process  which builds on that vision."

There were frequent suggestions to place restrictions on  development so thai il becomes  more accountable, to maintain  low-density housing, to maintain  green space, to provide for a mix  of ages (so as to avoid the walled  off retirement cities springing up  in Ihe Inlerior of BC), to preserve  a village atmosphere and to  avoid visually unattractive strip  development and congested  housing, (p. 55)  The present push for development has nothing to do with  meeling the needs of this community. It might have to do with  meeting the needs and restricted  vision of some developers. Perhaps, given the enormous impact  that their projects have on this  community, each should show  (through a comprehensive and  objective gathering of public  opinion) that their views of  development are supported by  people on the Coast.  Their development plans are  being submitted to our planning  bodies as if the presence of the  documents and the ideas gives  them a priori legitimacy. Their  ideas are presented in a vacuum  of public support with the irresponsible and illogical assumption that if no one is against Ihe  idea lhat at least means tacit support for the idea.  I urge the developers and  planners to objectively show that  their ideas have support and to  slop foisting on the public development plans that are given credence simply because they are  not actively opposed.  NORMAN GLEADOW  Sechelt  Open burning  not progress  For years now, we have had  toputupwrth slash framing for ���  alftiost sir months of tht year.1'���  Weiuisofgy piles of everything, .  '��� not burning, but causing thick,  choking smoke which lasts for  days. I still can't believe, in this  day and age,, that councils allow  such an archaic practice to continue.  When you drive from Gibsons  to Sechelt, as you go through  Davis Bay, look towards Sechelt.  You don't see the majestic  ':  mountains and ocean, you see  [' smog everywhere because of all  ���  the different areas burning soggy  brush, etc.  Now a local excavator has  ' applied to burn commercial  I refuse northeast of Sechelt. The  article in the Coast News states  that "it doesn't appear that the  municipality has any means of  preventing the application from  being approved."  Excuse me - can anyone do  what they damn well please? I  realize we probably don't have  , one elected official in office that  ' has any backbone. They don't  seem lo care thai McDonald's  garbage will plug our landfills,  coastlines, beaches, etc. They  don't care that slash burning creates a permanent smog pot and  health risk over the entire Coasl.  Do they not care that commercial refuse burning (which  must have been banned in communities 50 years ago) would be  the last straw that destroys our  once-beautiful unique Sunshine  Coast? It is sad and pathetic.  Does the almighty dollar really  rank that high on the government's priority list?  Our so-called mayor once  slated "you can't stop progress."  Is his head buried in some of the  smog? Some progress you can't  stop but you can sure as hell  slow it down to a snail's pace. If  some laws cannot be changed,  municipal bylaws can be brought  in to make it almost impossible  and very expensive for developers and killers of the environment and such to rape our Coasl.  Heavy fines, extremely heavy,  must be levied against all those  who contaminate our oceans,  land and air, doubling in dollar  value for every minute infraction.  We must elect men and  women who are fighters and  innovative in their way of thinking. Too bad we jusl had an election recently. We must have officials who care and are not just  interested in the almighty dollar  and spout empty words. People,  let your opinions be known. Yell,  scream, shout, picket if you have  to. We have to leave the Coast to  our children. Whal kind of shape  will il be in when we do?  MRS. ROBINSON  Sechelt  Complex focus  broadens  I would like to address some  statements made in the Coast  News on March 7 by Mr. Walter  Tripp of the Sunshine Coast  Minor Hockey Association.  Mr Tripp slatedlhat after,,  attending llie Feb. 27 meeling of <  th?i$pi|MMiCpast Recreation  Complex Society, he felt it was  clear that the Minor Hockey  Association would likely have  to work on their own for a second sheet of ice for the arena. At  lhat meeting, president Ann  Hayward spoke al length about  the need for a well-rounded  community recreation facility.  She stated that the SCRCS had  broadened our original focus,  recognizing the needs of skaters  as being just as crucial as those  of swimmers.  Although a pool was our  original goal, through research  and talking to various user  groups over the past six months,  we now realize that the development of a pool in conjunction  with ice facilities would be the  most sensible plan of action.  Mrs. Hayward made it quite  clear that the SCRCS wants to  work with anyone and/or any  group who has a need, or a  vision of what they would like  to see in a rec facility.  Mr. Tripp slated lhat he finds  the SCRCS to be "a bunch of  competitive swimmers who  don't have a lot more focus than  a 25 metre pool." In fact, none  of our board members are competitive swimmers. One of our  board members is active in the  tennis club, another is active in  minor hockey, while others of  us joined the Society because  we see a need in our community  and want to help do something  about it. Our membership consists of people from all over the  Sunshine Coast. We all recognize the wide diversity of sports  available lo children and adults,  and would like to see Ihose  needs met.  Mr. Tripp further stated that  he would like lo get something  done around here rather lhan  procrastinate for another five  years and end up with nothing.  The SCRCS has been meeting  since October, 1993, gathering  information, talking to the public whenever possible, and getting the proverbial hall rolling  towards building a facility of  some kind. There .are a myriad  of rules and regulations to  adhere to, and details to attend  to in this process. Through our  research we know that we can't  just go to the local governments  and say, "Please give money to  build a rec complex." A process  has to be followed, and the  SCRCS is doing jusl that.  Mr. Tripp came to our Feb.  27 meeting with a prepared  statement that specifically asked  the SCRCS to change its directive to build an ice rink first  instead of a pool.  This statement was made  after Mrs. Hayward had  informed the membership of the  need to broaden our focus lo  include the arena at the same  time as the pool.  Mr. Geran Capewell, who has  recently joined our board, has  had experience with fundraising  and grant applications. He  advised us at the Feb. 27 meeting that once our community  dipi'lHib thfc fiinaing/griHts '  pool, it will be another 't0-1'S '  years; btfore we wttuld be eligible again. We are very aware  that if Mr. Tripp were to push  ahead with his single-minded  desire for only a second sheet of  ice at the present arena location,  it would seriously undermine the  efforts of the SCRCS lo develop  a multi-use facility for Ihe Sunshine Coasl.  We would again invite Mr.  Tripp and representatives of any  other user groups to attend our  regular general meetings (every  four-six weeks), and see what  kind of progress we are making  toward achieving our goal,  rather than judging the SCRCS  on the basis of one meeting.  Let's all have open minds and  try to come together to build a  facility that everyone can be  happy with.  HEATHER STEELE  Secretary, SCRCS  More letten on page 18  $1994.

Soon after purchasing a logging sort beside Twin Creek  (near Port Mellon), Sechelt  Creek Contracting owner Ken  Sneddon grew tired of the lack of  coho salmon in the creek and  decided to do something about it.  That something involved the  hiring of Dr. Robert Newbury, a  Gibsons-based but internationally renown stream hydrologist  who specializes in returning  streams to their natural state.  He's the same Dr. Newbury who  helped rebuild and rejuvenate  Chapman Creek for Ihe Sunshine  Coast   Salmonid        Enhancement Soci-  ety.  Twin Creek  "was a typical  coastal, scoured-  out stream bed"  that blasted into  Howe Sound too  directly and with  too sleep a grade to  allow for Ihe formation of pools  and other features that salmon  and trout will use, Sneddon said.  Typical streams flowing into  Howe Sound, noted Grant  McBain, community advisor for  the Department of Fisheries and  Oceans, such as Oullette, Dakota,  McNair, Rainy and Langdale,  aren't too accommodating for  salmon spawning but all of them  have to potential to be so.  "There are phenomenal  amounts of rain and the grade is  sleep," he said, adding that all the  creeks emptying into Howe  Sound would benefit from programs similar to the ones Newbury has done at Chapman and  Twin Creeks. As well, "there are  other industry representatives  interested in doing this," he said.  Sneddon said he opted to  launch the projeci because  "actions speak louder than  words. We have to get away  from everybody pointing fingers  al everybody else" and start taking, fflrepf .((^problems, hpwev;,  er they've been caused.   , ,   .  %$WlM9'r-,A**S 'ittfilW*  pockets and paid about $10,000  for Newbury to find a way to  bring salmon back into the creek.  To allow for Ihe accommodation of salmon in the stream,  Newbury decided to add more  rapids lo the stream, much the  same way he did at Chapman  Creek.  At Chapman, a series of weirs  was installed to slow the creek's  energy and to create 'scour  pools' and 'riffles' so fish could  You don't have to  bring in a bunch  of high-tech  rocket scientists  -Robert Newbury  move upstream more easily and  to trap fine gravels that are  paramount to successful spawning. Rather than build weirs on  the smaller Twin Creek, Newbury had an excavator operator  place three-foot-plus diameter  boulders and rocks in the stream  to create seven riffle-beds or  small underwater walls. Between  the riffle-beds, larger boulders  were scattered to provide cover  for fish.  This work was completed in  August 1993 and today, when  you stand on the bridge that  crosses the creek at the end of  Twin Creek Road, you can see  four distinct sections upstream of        Ihe bridge and three  sections downstream, with slower-moving water  flowing down in a  white-water rapid  formation, instead  of blasting straight  down into the  Sound.  When the creek  ran unimpeded into the Sound, it  earned with it the smaller gravels  coho salmon and steelhead trout  use for spawning, Newbury said.  "Instead of drying up in the  summer, it now holds water in  the stream," he said.  "It's done a lot as far as stabilizing. We're getting a lot of  gravel that didn't stay there  before. At least the fish have a  chance to spawn now," McBain  said. "These things (projects) can  be done here. You don't have to  bring in a bunch of high-tech  rocket scientists from elsewhere," Newbury said.  In addition, small projects like  that on Twin Creek "are a lot of  fun to work oa There are immediate results and they're really  heartening to do."  Newbury, a Sunshine Coast  resident since 1987, is one of  many expatriate Manitobans to  move to this area; before coming  out here, he taught at Simon  Fraser University and the Uni-  vercityofManilobtr. Ht has also  written a stream hydrology field  manual entitled Stream Analysis  and Fish Habitat Design. -r  "He can teach you so many  things," said Sneddon, who then  related how Newbury solved a  problem in a creek once just by  scooping "some green slime"  from a creek and squeezing it.  After squeezing the slime free of  water, it remained slippery and  he quickly pointed out, "Somebody's septic system isn't working properly.  "He goes out and does his job.  Easter  Bonnet?

We intend to use him some  more, if we can." Newbury said  Sneddon's efforts to resuscitate  the creek for the purposes of  rentwittg fish Habitat are rare and'  should be appreciated.  "If you wait for the government to do it..." Newbury started  and stopped himself with a wide  smile before concluding, "it  would never get done."  The success of Newbury's  work was made obvious in the  autumn when "about 30 salmon"  were observed in the newly created deep pools and eddies in the  creek. "In previous yean we've  never had more than six or seven  Ian Cobb photo  fish in there," Sneddon said.  "It's perfect. You couldn't ask  ftfmore," McBaht ������f  < 'IV V-H*'?

"ll jusl makes sense," said  Cathy Kenny, solid waste manager with the Sunshine Coasl  Regional District (SCRD).  "(Recycling) is a better use  of those resources lhan jusl  throwing them away."  Kenny's comments were in  reaction to provincial environment minister Moe Sihola's  statement March 4 that his ministry is developing an industry-  run, government-regulated program enabling the public to  return waste painl lo trie vendor.  The program is lo be in place  by July 1,1994.  Sihota hopes the program  will help put the responsibility  and cosl of hazardous household  waste reduction "where it  belongs ��� with the industry  thai produces it and Ihe con  sumers who buy it."  Currently there are only eight  depots in ihe province which  accept household hazardous  wastes; waste paint makes up 70  per cent of ihe total, followed by  pesticides and paint thinners.  'Right now I have no  idea what be  (Sihota) is talking  about'  -Bill Wood  The depots, scattered around  the province, take in only .5 per  cent of the estimated total of  household hazardous waste  products and cost provincial  taxpayers over $1.4 million per  year lo operate.  Sihota says his new paint  recycling program will be both  more environmentally and economically effective.  On the Coast ihere is  nowhere lo recycle any household hazardous wastes beyond  oil and lead acid batteries.  Kenny said any such wastes  ��� including paint, pesticides  and thinners ��� are not welcomed at the local landfill.  "If we see them coming  through the gates, we pull them  oul and set them aside...If  they're being called hazardous  then we have to be careful."  Instead, consumers of such  products are being told by the  regional district lo slore the  waste products at a safe place at  home until legislation comes in  from the ministry allowing  proper disposal.  Meanwhile, Sunshine Coasl  paint vendors are still in the  dark about the details of Siho-  ta's program and how it will  effect their business.  "I don'l know what is going  to happen. Right now I have no  idea whal he (Sihota) is talking  about," said Bill Wood of  Brooks and Miller in Sechelt.  That comment was backed  by several other painl retailers  on the Coast.  Sechelt recycling depot proposed  Business continues to boom  for the Sunshine Coasl recycling  organization, SCRAPS.  Last year the primarily volunteer group kept over 500 metric tons of waste glass, paper  and other recyclables from the  landfill, said SCRAPS board of  directors secretary Steve Henry.  The goal this year is lo top  that number and operations arc  going well at the three recycling  depots around the Coast ��� Gib  sons, Sechelt and Pender Harbour ��� to achieve that.  Henry said SCRAPS has  recently started taking glass  products ��� clear and brown  glass only ��� for recycling at  the Sechelt depot.  The depot had stopped taking  glass last year due to contamination problems.  Those problems have been  remedied with the hiring of a  daily depot attendant.  Henry said SCRAPS submitted a proposal Thursday (March  17) to the Sunshine Coasl  Regional District (SCRD) for  the construction and operation  of a central warehousing and  processing depot for commercial and household recyclables.  SCRAPS' proposal for a central depot, planned for Sechelt,  is one of several currently  before the SCRD for consideration.

Ian Cobb pholo  by Ian Cobb  We all live around Howe  Sound and that is why the Howe  Sound Round Table (HSRT)  was founded. And the Round  Table is now looking for new  Coast members to fill some of  Ihe chairs around it.  Formed in July, 1993, the  HSRT is a group of 17 volunteers "with keen interest,  involvement and commitment to  assisting the citizens in Howe  Sound communilies achieve a  better understanding of the concepts of sustainable developmeni," stated a news release  presented during a March 15  Gibsons town council meeting.  Three of the 17 volunteers on  ihe HSRT are from the Sunshine  Coasl, with former Sechelt Indian Band chief Stan Dixon and  Gibsons resident Pat Tyson, a  representative of the Chemical  Energy Paper Union on the  Provincial Trade Advisory  Committee, and West Howe  Sound area resident Peter Moo-  nen, a Canadian Forest Products  communications specialist.  Tyson asked Gibsons council  if it would be interested in having a representative sit in on a  stakeholders' meeting at Lions  Bay on March 19. However, due  to conflicts in scheduling with  Ihe Union of British Columbia  Municipalities' annual general  meeting, mayor Eric Small  declined Tyson's invitation.  The HSRT  wants lo serve as  an advisory committee to keep a  focus on the continued economic,  environmental  and social sus-  tainability in the  Sound area.       1^^^^^^  "None of us  represent anybody," Tyson  said of the HSRT, adding that  the group, seeking to expand its  membership to 24 to ensure that  the "diversity of interests" in the  Sound area is covered, is working for the entire area, taking in  both sides of the arm of water.  "We are nol an elected body,  we are not an environmental  group and we are not an industry organization. I think it would  be a mistake to say that we are  just a collection of special- or  single-interest representatives  "We each bring a  diversity of  interests, expertise  and involvement to  the table'  -Peter Moonen  trying lo resolve issues. We  each bring a diversity of interests, expertise and involvement  to the table," said Peler Moonen,  vice chair of the round table.  The work the round table is  undertaking is guided by principles of sustain-  ability laid out in  the BC Round  Table   on   the  Environment and  Economy and in  the Commission  on    Resources  and    Environment's (CORE)  ^^^^^^   land use charter.  The    region  the table is representing is a "geographical delineation of the watershed feeding  the Sound."  Table member Grace Gordon-Collins, an Anvil Island resident, said the Howe Sound  region is a "virtual microcosm  of BC as a whole," with urban  and rural influences, wilderness  and resource values, recreation  and tourism, "as well as heritage, cultural and social issues"  representative of Ihe province.  After seven months in the  planning stage, "we've been  looking for projecls to do,"  Tyson said, adding the table has  now settled on one.  Group Chair Vicky Troup of  West Vancouver reported the  table is launching an "initiative  to explore new approaches to  ensure the sustainability of  water resources and aquatic  habitat in Ihe Sound."  Working wilh ihe Shared  Stewardship for Sustainability  (S3) Initiative, the table hopes to  get Howe Sound communities  working together to define a  vision for the future.  The S3 Initiative, Troup said,  "will bring stakeholders, communities and government agencies together to explore how we  can make sure that Riparian,  estuarine and marine environments are managed wisely for  the future. Environmental conservation needs to be balanced  with development and this process can bring all parties together to agree on the best  approach."  The Department of Fisheries  and Oceans is funding the  HSRT for the S3 Initiative.  t              i.            ���.���fe"'a'-':*rjM���t              A              _,\'----\'^K-_________               A,  m    ^BT *^l               ^^    ^&  4a^M.              ^^    -\m  WifiE  7Wi  I^^M  Mon.

After reviewing concerns  expressed by area resident John  Siska about safety and vehicle  noise on the road connecting the  lower town with the Sunshine  Coast Highway, council opted  to have Wilbert Fair, superintendent of public works, conduct traffic and pedestrian  counts at various areas and at  various times on the road.  "The count was done at the,  time when school children are  the most prevalent. We believe  these figures are fairly representative of the pedestrian and traffic activity," said town administrator Dan Legg.  Surveys were taken at School  Road and Highway 101, Wild-  wood Crescent, O'Shea Road,  Kern's exit and the Royal Canadian Legion exit on Jan. 17, 18  and 21 from 8:30-9:30 a.m.,  11:30 a.m-12:50 p.m. and 2:50-  3:50 p.m.  Second and third counts were,  done on Feb. 23 and 24 and  March 2 and 3 at the same times  al Sargent, Abbs, North and  Soulh Fletcher Road exits.  The highest traffic count for  an hour in the first survey, from  Wildwood Crescent lo Highway  101, was 540 vehicles and the  pedestrian count was 10 (children and disabled).  For the area at North and  Soulh Fletcher Roads, the highest traffic volume count was  764 vehicles with nine pedestrians.  And ihe busiest hour from  Ihe area, from Norlh/South  Fletcher up to Abbs Road, came  in at 487 vehicles and 14 pedestrians.  "At the presenl rate of vehicle traffic using School Road  per hour and assuming all  pedestrian traffic using the sidewalk were to make a pedestrian  crossing per hour, a crosswalk  still would nol be warranted,  and these figures encompass a  three- and four-block area  instead of one block," Fair sub-  milted in his final report to  council.  Council unanimously agreed  with Fair's findings, wilh councillor Ted Hume commending  the town employee on the thoroughness of the report.  Mayor Eric Small also noted  the steepness of Ihe hill's gradient, at 21 per cent, was too steep  for vehicles to have lo make  sudden stops for crosswalks.  &  '. :��� Or'- ;  : *vi����* .-'     i ������ education  Family  members and  student  participants  of the Coast  exchange  program, left  back to right,  Dean Martin,  Gail Sangster,  Aude Oger,  front,  Stephanie  Vangeneberg  and Juan  Carlos  Posada.

Just like Dorothy, Sunshine  Coast students must prefer their  home turf. Gail Sangster, of the  FRIENDS (First Rate International Educational Network  Dedicated to Students)  Exchange program says she  can't get local teenagers lo leave  the Coast.  FRIENDS offers three-, five-  and 10-month programs for  Canadian students to go to  school in Japan, Switzerland,  Belgium, Germany and Australia, bul Ihe company has yet  to send anyone from the Sunshine Coast.  "It's not money that's the  issue. The kids jusl don't want  to be away from home for a long  period of time," Sangster said in  an interview last Thursday.  Despite being thousands of  miles away from home, foreign  students are eager to come to  Canada. Over 500 Japanese students have come on the three-  week home-stay program over  Ihe past eight years.  Currently attending Elphinstone Secondary School on  long-term exchanges with  FRIENDS are: Stephanie Vangeneberg, 19 and Aude Oger,  18, from Belgium, and Juan  Carlos Posada, 17, from Colombia.  All three students had finished high school in Iheir home  countries but fell they were still  too young to go on lo university.  Coming to Canada to learn  English seemed like a good way  take lime off before pursuing  higher education.  "I didn't jusl want to go to  England, close to Belgium, to  'Juan saw snow  for the first  time, and was  amazed'  ���Robin Martin  learn English. I thought it'd be  better to go learn about another  culture, " said Vangeneberg,  who will spend 10 months in  Canada.  The three teens found Canada, and Gibsons,  very different from  their respective ~~~.~~~~  hometowns.  Everything from  food to school to  the attitude toward  alcohol was different from what the  youths were accustomed to.  "In Europe we  drink wine like  you drink water,"    _______  Vangeneberg said  with I a    laugh. ">* jk VW  "There's no special store for  alcohol and you call drink at any  age."  Posada, from Colombia's  capital, Bogota, said he liked  Gibsons' friendly atmosphere.  "You can talk to everyone here.  Bogota is very big. You have to  be more careful."  It took some time for Posada  to adjust to Canadian weather.  Compared to Colombia, the  Sunshine Coast is cold.  "His ears were really bothering him when he first arrived,"  his host mother, Robin Martin,  said. "Juan saw snow for the  firsl lime, and was amazed. We  took lots of pictures of him outside to send lo his family."  Oger loves the British  Columbian scenery. "It's not at  all like Belgium. I like lo go lo  Ihe beach, look al the mountains. I know it's something I'm  going to miss next year when  I'm back home."  "It's hard for some of the  kids who come from big cities lo  come lo a small place like Gibsons, which is fairly, isolated,"  Sangster said. Because of insurance regulations, program participants can't travel by themselves. Used to being very independent in their  native   country,  ~~~~~    Oger, Posada and  Vangeneberg had  to adjust to not  being able to leave  Gibsons.    Their  host families plan  to take some day  and weekend trips  with the youths so  they can see more  of BC before they      leave.  Both Oger and  M \t i Posada bolh knew  some English before the}  arf^ed ilCanada, bu? Vangeneberg did not. "I didn't even  know the difference between 'to  be' and 'to have' when I first  got here!"  At first, the three teens were  afraid people would laugh at  their accents, but between living  with a Canadian family and  attending school, they found that  within a few weeks of being  here, their English had dramatically improved.  Trying to understand the old-  fashioned English in Shakespeare's MacBeth has been a  challenge, but in general they all  find school easy.  The chance lo take less academically-oriented courses like  photography and art at Elphinstone was exciting for Ihe Belgian girls.  "In Belgium, we have to concentrate on things like malh and  science lo graduate," Vangeneberg said.  The   Martins   first   gol  'Almost easier to make friends here  than at home,' says Ugandan student  by Kyla McDonald  "We're living in a small  world and looking at ihe same  sun, Ihe same clouds," said Allan  Kalalumba when asked if he  missed his family and friends al  home in Uganda.  Kalalumba is a 19-year-old  African student who is currently  attending grade 12 at Elphinstone and experiencing Ihe wonders of Canada firsthand.  Kalalumba was first introduced lo Ihe possibility of studying in Canada last year when  Carol Hickman of Gibsons took  a trip to the Kalalumba school  for Orphans run by Kalatumba's  mother.  Hickman later arranged the  sending of a box of items donated by members of Ihe Gibsons  communily.  "We were very grateful for  Ihe donalions," said Kalalumba.  "They all arrived safe."  Hickman kept in correspondence with the Kalalumba family, and when Kalalumba decided  that he wished lo further his education in Canada, Hickman  offered to have him stay wilh her  family.  Ugandan exchange student  Allan Kalalumba.  Kyla McDonald photo  "My father asked me where I  wanted to go to school, I said  Canada," remembers Kalalumba  who has now been on the Coast  for over a month.  "People are very nice, very  kind. It's almost easier to make  friends here then at home," said  Kalalumba when asked about  Gibsons. "It is a very beauliful  place with both the ocean and the  mountains so close."  Kalalumba hopes lo continue  his education al Capilano College and then at the University of  British Columbia where he will  be studying lo become a lawyer.  "You have lo have very good  marks I hear," he said laughing  nervously. "I will be in Canada  until I finish school." He went on  lo add lhal he would be going  home for summer break lo visil  his family and friends.  At home in Uganda, Kalalumba is the oldest of five brothers  and one sister. One of his brothers will be following in his footsteps and will be coming lo  Canada to sludy next year.  When asked aboul the cultural  differences he's noticed, Kalalumba replied that there wasn't a  great discrepancy. He said that  the most noticeable difference  was how Canadian children treat  their elders. "Here ihere is a lot  less respecl given."  "Music's pretty much the  same; rap, soul, reggae and even  Bryan Adams are popular," said  Kalalumba. who added thai he  would be taking his first trip to  town since arriving lo see Ihe  upcoming Adams concert.  involved with FRIENDS last  year when they billetted two  Japanese girls for three weeks.  "I thought it would be really  interesting for my children to  have the experience of having  someone who speaks a different  language stay at the house, "  Robin Martin said, "and it  would be fun to learn about their  country and they could learn  about us."  Dean Martin said that at first  he was hesitant about having  strangers come live with his  family. "Now I think it's wonderful, a really great experience."  The Martins keep in touch  with past billets, and after Posada leaves in July, they have a  ���Japanese student coming in  September to stay for a'yeW.!'-.' ���'������<���  3  ALWEST HOME  SERVICES  VINYL WINDOWS  MFG.

Participants may work in any style or genre, no previous wriling  experience is required; all you need is an idea you'd like to see  come alive on stage.  Mears' approach to the work will focus on developing a  "blueprint for the stage" through the use of dialogue, character, and  action of the play. Exercises to develop ideas, back-stories and  characters will be the framework for the structure.  Mears comes with an extensive theatre background: a Masters  from University of Victoria, directing productions at many small  theatres throughout BC including the Bastion and Belfry Theatres  in Victoria; and eight years at the New Play Centre, acting first as  dramaturge/director and then for the last three years as artistic/managing Director.  Mears has also produced video and film.

A 75-time blood donor for  the Red Cross, Posey has donated blood everywhere from  Hong Kong to Calgary to  Toronto.  The first lime he gave blood  was in Calgary back in 1954.  "I lied about my age because  I was only 16, and you have lo  be 18. I ended up gelling my  picture in Ihe paper because a  bunch of us from Ihe high  school fraternity and sorority  had gone down to give," he  said. Posey got away from  donating as a young adull, bul  became an active donor again  when his daughler had a medical problem and needed a lot of  blood, "ll made me realize how  much other people relied on  blood," he said.  He now donates as often as  he can. Posey received a commemorative pin and a certificate  as lhanks from Ihe Red Cross  after he finished his 75th donation. The Red Cross also  thanked 50-lime donor Gordon  McKenna of Gibsons and 35-  lime donors Gino Cayer and  Aline McNeill, both of Sechelt.  by George Cooper  A self-published autobiography have an audience beyond the  TheWhittier Collection  SOLID HARDWOOD  Superior Quality  RBADYTO-ASSEMBLE AND READY-TO-FINISH.  WHEN YOU .ASSEMBLE AND FINISH IT YOURSElf  IT MEANS SO MUCH MORE  - TO YOU AND IT COSTS -  SO MUCH  LESS!  CHOOSE  ITEMS AND  A WIDE VARIETY OF  DESIGNS. FOR EXAMPLE:  author's family and friends? Dr.  W.J. Siwak's My Times does  indeed. It provides in vivid,  almost photographic detail, an  account of growing up on a farm  in mid-Saskatchewan's woodland region in ihe 1920s and  '30s, then lo service as bomber  pilot in World War II, and then a  long career serving his community as surgeon as well as other  community service.  In his account of his childhood, the strong family ties, the  governing moral values of the  times and the hard economic  state of the country we see a  western Canada social fabric so  different from Ihe fragmented,  aimless one of today.  A youngster learned very  early lo be self-reliant and  responsible. A bit of history to  mourn or scorn?  The advertisement for Waller  Siwak's book drew my instant  attention for I knew him when he  was a youngster in the country  school called Saskatchewan  Forks S.D. no. 364, enrollment  62, one teacher. Walter was one  of a half dozen students who sat  quiet and diligent, working alone  on high school correspondence  To me Waller Siwak was a  marvel of persistence in completing his Grade 11 in this way and  then, a student in nearby Prince  Albert's secondary school, passing his Grade 12 with honours.  Enlisting immediately in Ihe  RCAF (it was now 1943), he  applied his single-minded diligence to pilot training. In his  book he pays admiring respecl to  the big Lancaster bombers which  he flew on raids in Ihe closing  monlhs of World War 11.  And again in university, when  he decided after several starts at  other programs lo sludy  medicine, Ihe same concentration  and application look him Ihrough  the long years of medical school,  as it did later for another four  years' training in surgery.  No bookworm, Waller has  always been a sociable person  and along wilh a demanding  medical practice, has served his  city of Camrose in many a community program.  In his Polish-speaking early  childhood, the eldest of six siblings, Waller was early assigned  tasks challenging enough for an  adult in which he developed a  self-reliance and a quiel self-  assurance not uncommon among  ihe youlh of his lime and circumstances. It is interesting to me to  note Ihe community he grew up  in now has the third generation  operating the farms and prospering at it.  The barefoot days of childhood saw him fishing the river  for goldeyes and pickerel needed  for Ihe family table, picking the  many varieties of wild berries,  helping in the large garden and in  lime helping with the harvest  where many hands were needed  in Ihose days of horse power.  They played the simple games  of childhood like anli-aye-over,  shared one CCM bicycle, read  the newspapers, both Polish and  English, from first to last page.  Food was not always plentiful; many a supper was cornmeal  and milk.  And there were loo the imaginative Hallowe'en pranks, the  family Christmases, and above  all the good neighbourliness ever  evident in times of stress.  Thunderstorms and the northern lights gave everyone pause to  reflect upon an awesome environment.  But read it yourself to get full  appreciation of those people and  their limes.

If you were born before 1945  these changes you have witnessed: we were before house  husbands, gay rights, computer  dating, dual careers and commuter marriages. We were doing  nicely without daycare centres,  group therapy and nursing  homes. We never heard of FM  radio, tape decks, electric typewriters, artificial hearts, word  processors, yogurt or guys wearing earrings and carrying purses.  For us, time-sharing meant  togetherness, not computers or  condominiums; a chip meant a  piece of wood, hardware meant  hardware and software wasn't  even a word. We thought fast  food was what you ate during  Lent and outer space was the  back of the neighbourhood theatre. (There's lots more).  by Deanna Lueder, 885-7365  Spring has sprung.

All are projects researched and  developed by Pender Harbour Senior Secondary (PHSS) science students.  Regional competition is stiff, according to  science teacher Marianne Larsen, who is also  a member of the Vancouver Science Fair  Committee.  "We'll be competing against both public  and private schools from Vancouver to Maple  Ridge, and some of the private schools have a  lot of money invested in their science fair  development programs. Our judging criteria  here is the same one developed by the Youth  Science Foundation, and these are the standards used in the regional competition. Last  year, we competed in a field of 250 projects."  PHSS brought home seven prizes from the  1993 regional competition'in Vancouver, with  grade nine student Rolf Harrison being selected lo represent BC at Ihe nationals in Quebec  City. "Judging is based on a points system  with 24 per cent of the total coming from the  oral interview," said Larsen. "Our judges  spent a lot of time with the students and we  were astonished with their range of expertise.  "We had physicians, nurses, electrical  engineers, biologists, geologists, computer  science experts, civil engineers, teachers, and  chemists. It's a great opportunity for kids to  have contact and feedback from their community."  On display for the public during parent  interaction day, March 8, the range and quality of projects was outstanding, according to  judge Linda Curtiss.  "I was very impressed with the exemplary  quality and range of experiments, and with the  attitudes of the students. They were knowledgeable, confident, and enthusiastic, in sharing their research and results with the judges."  PHSS is sending 12 projects to the region-  als held at UBC in April, and computer science program development represents a quarter of PHSS project entries.  In an awards ceremony Tuesday night,  computer science teacher Wendy Simmonds  presented senior Brad Cotter with a 'Computer Bug' award for the development of the Best  Pascal program on the Sunshine Coast. Cotter  will be taking his Famous Scientists' program  to UBC along with Amber Nelsen and Kristi  na Reagh's project, also a Pascal program  designed for music, entitled, Name that Tune.  Steve Wharton and Jesse Zacharias will compete wilh Iheir HyperCard program, The Evolution of Computers.  Grade nine student Shannon Gibson is off  to UBC with her conditioning project involving the household cat. Potty training the cat to  use human facilities has been a three-month  project. Shannon complained that it was only  supposed to take 21 days. Photographs of the  family Siamese, perched plaintively atop a  toilet seat covered with saran wrap, stared  accusingly from the project display.  Other grade nine winners entering the  regionals are Scarlett Hunt, and Jason Knox.  Grade tens competing are Rolf Harrison,  Deven Cameron, Kelly Williamson, Andre  Joss, Julia Forward, Tracey Thompson,  Heather Mackay, and Aleezah Charbonneau.  Competitors from grade eight include Michele  Zacharias, Graeme Malcolm, Stuart Malcolm,  Ryan Reagh, and Chris Ford.  There were 31 second-class winners from  grades eight through twelve, 19 third-class  winners and eight honourable mentions.  The regional competition is open to the  public at UBC, April 8-9.

Madeira Ml  88W87S  RECYCLE THIS NEWSPAPER  by Maureen Parrott  Three Egmont people in two  boats crossed the gulf to Comox  on March 9: my father Billy  Griffith, my husband Brian and  me. We brought my father's  seiner Tzoonie River and my  brother's Kastel Novi over for  the herring fishery. Ira Griffith,  will run Kastel Novi.  We are not here to fish: we  are just packers. We will be on  hand to carry other people's  calch away so they can go on  fishing. Fishing time is so short  that boats cannot afford to leave  the grounds to deliver their  catch.  Thursday, March 10: The  herring seiners went out to fish.  They need deep water to work,  so Ihey fish when the herring are  still milling around off the shore.  We will pack for the gillnets,  who fish right by the beach  16TH ANNUAL  APJUL FOOL'S  m  when the herring are coming in  to spawn.  For several days we wail in  harbour, listening to the morning  announcements saying "herring  gillnet fishing opportunities are  coming closer," but there will be  no fishing today. Maybe tomorrow? This stage can last for  ' weeks.  March 13:1 climb across bundled logs for a walk on Goose  Spit. Once ashore, I see this  shrubby sandbar supports a surprising variety of plants. But  suddenly I see activity in the  harbour mouth ��� fishing boats  going out. I hear my name called  and hurry back to the boat. Fishing will start tomorrow.  Monday, March 14: While  waiting for customers, we jig  herring. Barbless hooks are best.  The fishing time saved unhooking the herring on deck more  than makes up for the ones  which escape, and the ones that  get away are not badly hurt.  A hooked herring agitates the  line so that more bite. When the  line feels heavy enough, you pull  in your string of herring, shake  them off and put the line down  again. You get another bite within seconds.

Along the shore we can see  herring skiffs by the score, their  big paddle-shaped 'shakers'  flashing in the sun as they rotate  under the nets, knocking herring  out into the boats. Somebody has  set in front of another net, but  fouled his gear on Ihe first boat's  anchor line.  Serves him right. Now he has  to take time to untangle his net  and the first-comer keeps right  on fishing.  Fat sea lions roll by, blowing  through their noses or saying  "Orp? Orp?" After lunch they  float around in groups with their  flippers sticking out of Ihe water.  I laugh, but a gillnelter would  not: sea lions tear through gill-  nets like tissue.  Fishing closed at 5 pm and  here comes a Co-op boat loaded  with herring. We use the pursing  winch and a double block purchase to lift the brails; the scale  attached below the lifting tackle  says we pull as much as a ton  and a quarter getting a heavy  brail out of the skiff. We need  power to swing the loads, too. If  we had two booms, this would  be easier.  Empty, Ihe skiff seems huge.  "Skiff" is a misnomer; it's 32  feet by 12 feet, a big high-floating aluminum box filled with  open brails instead of decks,  crewed by four men. They hose  off the punt and each other, then  go on their way. We go to find  the big packer with its fish pump  and on-board refrigeration systems.  When we reach Arctic Harvester we must wait our turn. By  the time we have been pumped  out and refilled with fresh ice  and chilled sea water, it's two in  the morning. Now I understand  why the fishermen preferred to  deliver to us and get some sleep.  Tomorrow is a work day.  Next day is much the same,  apart from a little wind. Fishing  is better: the skiff delivers over  13 tons of herring. Arctic Harvester wants us to run our load to  Vancouver. We arrive in Ihe wee  hours, but wait until afternoon  Wednesday to be unloaded. Now  comes the tough part, scrubbing  down the hatches. Herring scales  stick like glue, but the roe is  worse. It contains adhesive that  can glue the eggs lo slippery  kelp.  Well, that's it for the herring  this year. I'll be back with  Egmont news next week.  'Sustainable communities' debated  "The concept of sustainability  is essential to our survival and  should be viewed as the intent  and central operating principle of  planning...  If we are lo achieve sustainable development, we will have  to go beyond the notion lhal land  is a mere commodity. Land is  one of Ihe fundamental components required for Ihe continuation of human life. We should  now recognize the rights of the  ecosystem and the species, as  well as the rights of individuals.  Clearly, this principle holds  numerous, significant implications for planners and land use  planning." ���Canadian Institute  of Planners, 1990.  On April 8 and 9 Sunshine  Coast residents will be able to  participate in a forum on creating  'sustainable communities.'  Dr. Mark Roseland of Ihe  School of Resource and Environment Management al Simon  Fraser University will be the  keynote speaker and leader of the  forum. Roseland is author of  Toward Sustainable Communities, a resource book for municipal and local governments, published by Ihe National Round  Table on Ihe Environment and  Ihe Economy.  Roseland's work was introduced lo Sechelt's Official Com  munity Plan process by environmental consultant Ken Uy. The  initiative to bring Dr. Roseland to  the Coast was taken by the  Sechelt Village Residents Association, which hosted the Future  of Sechell Forum wilh Dr. Waller  Hardwick last year.  Widespread interest has led  the village residents to hand over  the organization of this forum to  April Struthers of Healthy Communities to reach as many residents, organizations, community  groups and governments as possible.

Coast News, March 21, 1994  17  news  police beat  Off the road  Three people were sent lo St.  Mary's Hospital with minor  injuries March 12 after a while  1985 Hyundai driven by a 38-  year-old Gibsons man struck a  black Hyundai driven by a  Sechell woman. The accident  occurred at 9:44 a.m. al the corner of Highway 101 and Trail  Ave. The driver of Ihe 1985  Hyundai was charged wilh failure to yield after making a left  lurn in front of Ihe other vehicle.  A total of $6,000 damage was  done to both vehicles.  At 12:04 p.m. lhal same day,  a 1990 Ford Aerostar Van collided with a 1978 Chevrolet pickup  al Garden Bay Road and Irvines  binding. The 32-year-old driver  of Ihe Aeroslar was subsequently  charged wilh failure lo obey a  slop sign. No injuries were  reported although the vehicles  suffered a total of $10,000 in  damage.  Courting trouble  In Sechell Provincial Court,  former Sechell resident Marcel  Cole pleaded guilty to breach of  probation on March 15. Cote  surrendered himself afler a warrant was issued for his arrest.  The 36-year-old carpet cleaner failed lo reporl to his probation officer afler being convicted  of a break and enter on East  Hastings in 1992. The man had  also failed lo pay restitution of  $175 by Ocl. 31, 1993 as  required.  Cote's probation has now  been extended to October 1994  and he musl pay restitution of  $175 by Sept. 15.  Randal Charles Bruchet, 40,  of no fixed address received a  suspended sentence and one  year's probation in Sechelt  Provincial Court. Bruchel had  pleaded guilty lo shoplifting two  silk shirts from the Hudsons Bay  in Victoria May 24, 1993 al  12:15 p.m.  The man, who has long-standing drug and alcohol problems,  was arresled aller a chase ensued  wilh security officers outside Ihe  slore. Apparently Bruchel had  committed Ihe offence jusl after  he had been released from probation.  He has since attended the Port  Mellon Men's Recovery Mouse  and is currently involved in  Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous programs.  The court had fell lhal the  man had "gone a long way" to  further his own rehabilitation and  was no longer a Ihreal to sociely.  He will serve probation unlil  April 1995.  Bruchel has six previous convictions for thefl under $100.  Diversion idea taken to local governments  by Ian Cobb  The wait is on for a Sechelt  RCMP oflicer trying lo implement a community accountability program to deal with minor  criminal offenders outside Ihe  court system.  Staff Sgt. Cam Reid has  approached Gibsons and Sechelt  councils and the Sunshine Coast  Regional District board of directors with hopes of gaining their  support, both philosophically  and financially.  While the philosophical support was evident at a Feb. 23  Sechelt council meeting, a Feb.  24 SCRD board meeting and a  March 1 Gibsons council meeting, financial support is still  being considered by all three  governments.  The accountability program,  used to divert minor cases away  from the slow-moving and often  solution-less court system,  would need a part-time coordinator who would select community members to form a panel  that would look into appropriate  settlements of the various problems brought before it. He/she  would also answer to a board of  directors. About $25,000 would  be needed to hire a coordinator  and set up the accountability  program, Reid said.  "The coordinator would be  responsible for looking at situations as they see it and then tap  into the resources (in the communily) they see fit to help  resolve the case," Reid said during a March 1 presentation to  Gibsons town council.  "You're taking on a pretty  heavy responsibility," councillor  John McNevin told Reid.  "We're doing that now,"  Reid responded.  The need for an alternative  way of dealing with minor  offences is daily made obvious  by Ihe failures coming from Ihe  court system, Ihe council was  told. "We're seeing tremendous  criticisms in our community of  the court system, especially wilh  young offenders," Reid said,  quickly adding that a diversion/accountability program  could also include adult offenders.  An accountability program,  separate from an existing  provincial diversion program,  will be voluntary for accused  parties, Reid said.  "There i.s no obligation for  Ihe accused lo continue. If  they're not willing lo participate, Ihey don'l have to."  If that should happen, they  would be streamed into Ihe  court system.  Once a program gels going,  Reid said in an interview following the meeting, "il sets a  communily standard as well."  Reid said he's confident Ihe  accountability program will  receive support from the ihree  local governments as well as a  possible tie-in with the Sechell  indian Band, already familiar  with the program as it has had a  similar program for about a year  now.  Sechelt, Reid said, "is recommending support" and the  SCRD hasn't passed a motion to  explore the idea "but the feeling  is they would support it."  Gibsons council, buoyed by  the per capita funding idea,  deferred the mailer lo Ihe  finance committee for further  discussion. "We're well into our  budgeting process," said mayor  Eric Small, explaining to Reid  that il wouldn't be wise for  council lo commit to anything  until Ihey know what ihey have  lo spend.  Small was vocally in support  of the idea. Per capita funding  would mean Gibsons would pay  about 20 per cent of the cost of a  coordinator, while Sechelt and  the SCRD would cover the rest.  Gibsons town administrator  Dan Legg suggested the town  wrile a letter lo Ihe other two  governments to try and gel an  idea about where they stand on  the idea.

Watershed history  Mr. Dan Bouman would have  done well to consul! Ihe records  before he made his statement,  "For most of this century logging  has not heen allowed in Ihe Vancouver watersheds."  Al one lime or another all  Ihree watersheds on Ihe North  Shore have been logged. Bolh  sides of Ihe Capilano Valley  were clear-cut by Ihe Capilano  limber Company. Their logs  were taken to Ihe mill on a sleam  railroad which started where the  Heaver Lumber slore now stands,  crossed to Ihe west bank of the  river jusl below the Upper Levels  bridge, followed up lo Ihe base of  Ihe Lions, then branched over lo  Easlcap Creek behind Crown  Mountain. The line of Ihe railway  grade is still visible from Ihe  Grouse Mountain Skyride; Ihe  lighter alders which grew up on  the open soil show up against the  dark evergreen forest alongside.  The whole operation came an  end aboul 1935 when a forest fire  burned the west face of Crown  Mountain and a fire of somewhat  questionable origin destroyed the  sawmill. Since that lime the  whole valley has been closed to  public travel, thus protecting the  purity of the waler supply.  At one lime the upper valley  of Lynn Creek was used as a  watershed for most of North  Vancouver. A shingle mill was  sited on the east bank about a  half mile above the intake with a  plank road extending five miles  up the valley lo the junction with  Hanes Creek. There were various  camps along the right-of-way,  traces of which may still be seen.  The operation ceased in 1927  when all the mature cedar had  been removed.  This area is now Lynn Headwaters Regional Park. No longer  a watershed, it is open to public  travel, being visited by thousands  each year.  The Seymour River watershed  is somewhat different. The intake  dam al Seymour Falls lies some  six or seven miles inside the  boundary. Logging has occurred  on areas not draining inlo the  watershed, on Ihe wesl face of  Ml. Seymour in 1938-39 and  below Ihe ski area in the 1950s.  Balloon logging was tried on the  easl face of Lynn Peaks during  Ihe 1960s. The system worked  bul was not a financial success.  Al Ihe present time the whole  area above the dam is closed to  Ihe public; an annual open house  to ihe dam, hatchery and demonstration forest draws big crowds.  The heavy rains of mid-February raised the water of all these  streams lo flood level, resulting  in an increase in silt (the "turbidity" beloved by the environmentalist) in Ihe water supply. Being  inorganic mineral material this  silt poses no dangers to the users;  the GVRD issued an advisory to  this effect and in a few days the  problem disappeared.  If Gray Creek is no longer  meeting minimum health standards it is the result of bacterial  contamination, which problem  could be gradually eliminated by  the exclusion of people from that  watershed. Before Chapman  Creek gets to the same state, it  might be an idea to do the same  thing so as to protect the purity of  iis water.  JAMES R.

Over those years we've  watched the world change around us while we've remained steady as a rock, providing a safe, reliable  institution for your advertising dollar.  The first issue of the Coast News rolled off the presses on July 11, 1945. providing in-depth coverage for the  Coast's little more than 500 residents. Today, we're still covering the Coast for its 25,000-plus residents,  faithfully marking the passage of every week in history.  Life is too variable to predict what the next 50 years will hold, but with your support the constant will be the  C OAST v NEWS  received a bump on the head by  an apple. I am of course referring  to Sir Isaac Newton. What has  been forgotten by Ihose who  carry on his work is lhal aside  from being a great inventor, he  was also a great philosopher. I  see Isaac's law as universal,  applying to all things, people  included.  As an example, a boss's wife  leaves him and he goes to the  workplace the following day and  takes a chunk out of the foreman's lower posterior. The foreman, in turn, takes it out on his  fellow workers (it has now  become a chain reaction) and one  becomes so ticked off he quits.  He cannot get another job,  becomes depressed and miserable, his marriage goes on Ihe  rocks, his wife leaves him and he  lakes to the bottle.... The situation becomes so complex, no one  can see where il Marled and yet  everyone's pointing a finger.  I am not an environmentalist,  nor have I ever laid claim lo  being one; I am a human (same  word as humane). In the past  three years I have studied the  issue from bolh sides, spending a  year getting lo know a logging  family and the problems they  face. I chose to see our similarities, the common denominators  as it were, not our differences.  People are being pitted against  one another and the anger is  growing; eventually someone is  going to get hurt. Both sides are  seeing the other's reaction as an  action, without tracing it back to  the source... who started the pendulum in motion?  For those who know me and  have walked through the forest  where the truth lies, they know  that I have no love for the  forestry department. I do not  have a dislike for all those who  work for forestry, it is their  teachings which anger me.  Things that come forth from  them like "cost effectiveness"  and "we emulate nature."  I am as I have always been, on  the side of nature, the only place  true balance can be found. The  one thing we all have in common  aside from our actions and reactions is "the tree of life." Trees  have given us so much ��� buil(l-  ing materials, medicines, air, ole.  It does nol matter who you  are, where you are, or who set the  pendulum in motion, if you take  away too many trees, life everywhere dies. It is that simple. As a  species, we have created quite a  chain reaction and fighting  amongst ourselves is only going  to accelerate that chain reaction.  Perhaps that tree was trying to  give old Isaac a message, then  again maybe the apple hit him a  little loo hard. Who is going to  wait and see? Our children have  a choice.  SAMUEL MOSES  Gibsons  Commuters seek  voice on ferries  Re: the "Ferry whiners, get  out of here" letter to the editor  published Feb. 21.  Mr. Pearson: Do you really  want the commuters and frequent  travellers that currently bring  over $4 million of disposable  income annually to the Sunshine  Coasl to get oul of here?  Do you believe that ihose who  indirectly subsidize Ihe BC Ferry  Corporation (BCFC) ihrough  provincial taxes and then pay  additional tariffs for transport are  whining if they request input into  scheduling, fare structures and  issues of safety that directly  affect them? The Sunshine Coasl  Commuters Association has been  organized to create a collective  rational voice and lo seek and  ihen provide that input.  We agree lhat rarely is il recognized that hundreds of successful, timely and safe excursions  occur daily within the ferry system. With Ihe growing population of the Coast, a run lhat once  had a carrying capacity of 80 cars  per trip now accommodates 300  vehicles or a total of 1.03 million  vehicles and 2.41 million passengers per year. This i.s a credit to  ferry employees such as yourself,  who make the system work as  well as it docs.  In the spring of 1993 a questionnaire was circulated to travellers and Iheir outstanding concerns were identified. This resulted in the formation of the SCCA  whose articles of association  stale lhat its purpose i.s lo work to  provide commuters, frequent  travellers and individual commercial users of the BCFC Sunshine Coasl route, with an efficient, safe and high level customer service coastal ferry transportation system; and to promote  cooperation wilh Ihe BCFC and  Ihe BC government and ils ministries in meeling the aspirations  of the Sunshine Coast communities and Iheir citizens.  This appears to be in agreement wilh the aims of the BCFC,  as staled by Mr. Rhodes in its  1992/93 annual reporl. "Public  demands...for improved performance, better financial results,  expanded services mixed with  corporate needs to strengthen  community and client relations."  If you have any constructive  suggestions thai will help to  achieve the mutual objectives of  the corporation and the association, the directors meet every  Tuesday on the 6:20 am ferry.  PETER H. PEACH,  vice president  Sunshine Coasl Commuters  Association  Socking it to us  The following was submitted  as an open letter to Ihe BC Ferries Corporation.  Well you did it again, didn't  you? I mean lead us all down the  garden path. After years of discussions, letter writings, propositions and ideas you, BC Ferries,  sent your top chief up here to  come and tell us that we have  been sending our letters to the  wrong people.  Can you just imagine that? All  those years we have been barking  up the wrong darn tree. All that  time and effort we, the Sunshine  Coast, have put into getting represented on the board was smartly overlooked. Now Ihey tell us  we have to set up more community meetings and then group  them all together so they can  attack them as one issue. Right.  Exactly the same way Ihey handled us last March 9.  What did we get? Sweet fruit  apples. Yes, they will have 10  telephone lines open for us. To  do what? Keep talking lo the  same wall as we have in the past?  The Chief M. Martin Anally  comes over and tells us that if it  comes right down to it, he is no  'chief at all in this 'extremely  exciting and complex corporation.' Good grief! Where does  lhat get us poor citizens? If it is  that complex to him, he should  gel out.  So we need more communications. Did he ever explain why  our Sunshine Coast is not represented on their board? And he  also confirmed that, yes, our rates  will go up but we will hardly  nolice it. How on earth is he  planning to do that? Maybe on  his salary he does not nolice that  suddenly his wallet is $100  lighter every few months, bul to  all of us it makes a big difference.  If you excuse me a second,  Mr. Martin, I'd like lo say a few  words to your boss.  "Hey Mike! Harcourt, that is.  Nice promises there, Mike. No  lax increases. Good boy. Bul cutting subsidies to ferries ��� isn't  thai ihe same? You probably  have another name for that and it  used lo be very popular on a TV  show ��� sock it to them, sock it  to them!"

But then again, the wiry  Sechelt resident doesn't have to;  he prefers to let his skis, and  sometimes his parents, do the  talking.  "I'm afraid it looks like  you're not going to get much  out of him loday," said Pam  Barnsley, the enthusiastic recreational skier/mother of young  Connor, during an interview at  the      Barnsleys'      waterfront home in  West Sechell.  And she was not  far off the mark.  For the record,  Connor is one of the  Sunshine Coast's  rising skiing stars,  despite the obvious  lack of skiable terrain in the area.  With the assistance of his parents,  the youngster has  been making regular  weekend trips to snowbound  Whistler for the past five years.  Connor has been racing with  the Whistler Mountain Ski Club  for three years and is about to  wrap up his best year on the  boards to date.  One of his accomplishments  this season was qualifying for  the provincial speed championships on Blackcomb Mountain in January.  In that particular race, Connor finished 14th out of a field  of 78 racers.  He followed that up with a  I2th-place finish in the giant  slalom in Rossland that moved  him closer to the lop-ranking  junior skiers and enabled him to  qualify for the Western Canadian Junior Championships in  Smilhers last weekend.  Joining him at the race was  13-year-old Tahlia French,  another member of the Whistler  ski club.  Perhaps the biggest thrill for  Connor was scoring sponsorship  from Salomon.  To his parents, the sponsorship has meant considerable  'School is an  important thing  in a teenager's  life but be also  has something  here that is  important as  well'  ���Pam Connor  savings in equipment, which can  run between $5,000 and  $10,000 a season.  To young Connor, the sponsorship means he is finally  being recognized for his skill on  the slopes.  Connor specializes in giant  slalom and super-G disciplines,  but is currently preparing for the  first downhill race of his young  life.  He said the downhill discipline is "nol much different"      from racing super-  G. Although he has  never raced downhill, he has managed to conquer  the Dave Murray  downhill course,  albeit at a slightly  slower speed than  Canadian greats  Cary Mullen and  Rob Boyd.  One of the challenges  a  young   skier like Connor  must face is balancing the slopes with school.  For up to four days a week, he  can be found training at  Whistler or travelling across BC  and Alberta to compete in races.  That doesn't leave much time  for school, although Connor  doesn't seem to mind.  "It's fine with me," he said  quietly.  "The school is the hard part  of it all," chimes in Pam, adding  that Connor tends to miss  "chunks and chunks" of class  time.  Unfortunately for Connor,  tutoring is less of an option on  the Sunshine Coast than in Vancouver, where tutoring for  young skiers is readily available.  In his case, Connor is usually  required to inform teachers of��  his absence and request any  upcoming assignments.  "It's not ideal but there is no  other real way around it," said  Pam.  "School is an important thing  in a teenager's life but he also  has something here that is  important as well."  Going Away  on Vacation?  Your Secret's  Safe With Us.

Don Seykens, coordinator of  the Gibsons Youth Centre Teen  Darts Program, said the Coast  was chosen lo host the championships following an impressive  performance by local youths at  this year's tournament in Fernie  held March 12-13.  "After seven weeks of training with these kids we brought  back a junior sportsman-like  trophy and Ihe high score trophy  of 140 in the junior division,"  Seykens said following his  team's return from the tournament.  "Compliments were coming  out of Ihe woodwork from  opposing teams like Kamloops,  Texada and Nanaimo,"  Sechelt resident Darren  Flebbe managed to throw the  highest score in the junior division male category at the competition.  His success was followed by  a sportsmanship trophy and a  perfect 180 score, both won by  Chad Dambier in the seniors'  male division.  jjj^  Ta^K *^k>  /���'               ^A**  4  **W    %  li: wfu  V > VH  j ��� i iii  /w  J/^^-~*:-*  \         A  H  a  ^^B  L ���       M  Getting her point across, darts is a co-ed sport.

Other youths representing the  Coast included Bill Perlstrom,  John Sutherland and Jesse  Agnew in the senior boys' division and Wendy Lucas in the  junior girls' division.  Perlstrom and Sutherland are  expected to be in next year's  lineup when the team goes to  Vernon to compete in the 1995  provincial youth dart championships.  "Coaches from the other  teams were saying we had  sharpshooters," Seykens said.  The national youth dart  championships will be held in  Toronto May 20-22.  Members from first place  Texada and second place Fernie  boys' squads will attend the  championships.  "We narrowly missed (out).  A bit of concentration would  have been good but they were  too excited, too nervous and  there were loo many new faces  and challenges," Seykens said.  "But after seven weeks, I  think we did excellent."  The club will extend the  darts program to Sechelt with  the assistance of Branch 140 of  the Royal Canadian Legion.  Seykens will review the possibility of bringing darts lo  Madeira Park and Branch 112 of  the Royal Canadian Legion.  "All this because we got the  provincials for 1997," he said.  The club received assistance  from numerous sponsors in  being able lo attend the tournament, with donations coming  from the Royal Canadian  Legion and Elves Club, among  others.

If so, you're in for a big treat.  There's word that an all-hockey sports channel is in Ihe works,  lhanks lo the cash-strapped  Canadian NHL franchises.  Winnipeg, Quebec City,  Ottawa, Calgary and Edmonton,  worried about the constant mushrooming of player salaries  (lhanks to Sl. Louis Blues general manager Ron Caron and his  insane lack of any kind of spine  when it comes to dealing with  player agents [see: parasites]),  are blathering about establishing  Ihis all-hockey sports channel to  help add lo their income.  You see, wilh the exception of  Toronto and Montreal, Canadian  franchises ��� including Vancouver, you smug Lower Mainlan-  ders ��� don'l have the luxury of  making as much money as their  American counterparts.  There's a dung-load of reasons why. Whether it's because  they don't own Iheir arenas, have  Ihe rights to concessions, have  poor dinky little populations or  because they have to pay players  more to play in Canada because  they're whining, pampered egomaniacs who believe playing in  an American markei is better for  Iheir withered souls, is unclear.  Thus, It's going to be Hockey  Nighl in Canada every night of  the week. It will be like play-off  lime all season longl  Personally, I'm delirious with  joy at hearing this. My wife (who  I'll call Rachel), though a hockey  Ian, will hate this news ��� as will  the majority of hockey widows  and, yes, they're out there, hockey widowers.  Being a Winnipeg Jets fan, it  saddens me that I don't get to see  my learn on the tube very much.  Why? Well, they're from  Winnipeg for starters. Winnipeg  seems to have this stigma  attached to it by hack media bed-  welters (See: Iain Maclntyre/Jim  Taylor) who visit the place in the  heart of winter and whine and  cry because it's a little nippy.  They've likely never visited  the place in the summer and if  they have, they'll whine about  the mosquitos (see: Sopwith  Camels).  Thus, the Jets get passed over  by TSN (Toronlo Sports Network) who show yet another  Maple Leafs game. This isn't so  bad now because the Leafs actu-  ally have a hockey team but  PDG (Pre-Doug Gilmour), it was  a raging insult. And I'm sure you  Canuck fans can relate.  Mind you, not seeing the  Wippingpig Wets much on the  tube is probably a good thing this  year.  The CBC probably has a  Canadian content mandate where  cities other than Toronto have to  be shown on Hockey Night in  Canada a couple of limes a year  each. Other than that, we Jets,  Flames, Oilers, Nordiques, Senators and Canucks fans are SOL.  And that is why an all-hockey  channel should be embraced,  But there's a catch. The catch  is the complete and utter end to  Canadian civilization.  Imagine if there was an all-  baseball channel in the United  States. Sundays in December and  January are bad enough when the  TV channels are awash in NFL  and college football.  An all-hockey channel in  Canada will mean Sunday afternoon every day of the week.  Marriages will crumble, as  will homes and businesses. Large  societies will be formed, such as  MHIAHZ (My Husband Is A  Hockey Zombie) or HCA (Hockey Channel Anonymous).  Don Cherry will rise from his  spot on HNIC and, along with  his trusty prime minister, Ron  McLean (it was Don who sang  American Pie, get it right)  become the king of Canada.  Oh oh, I smell the birth of yel  another bad Canadian sitcom to  fill up the dead air space during  the off season.  Episode one: Tonya Harding  and Pat Quinn are indicted in a  plot to keep Petr Nedved from  playing for the St. Louis Blues,  with Andrea Martin's Edith  Prickley as Tonya, Dave Hodge  as Pat Quinn and a slim, trim  shaven Bruno Gerussi as Petr.  Watch as Don races lo help  the two villains and Ron, wearing a T-shirt stating "I'm from  Red Deer," suffers the angst of  having to deal with Don's lack of  political correctness.

Teams competing from communities outside the Coast include  Maple Ridge, Surrey, Kalarney,  North Vancouver, and Burnaby.  The tournament began last  Saturday with five- to seven-  year-olds taking the ice in the  Tyke division.  "I don't know if you've ever  seen little ones play hockey but  it's probably got to be Ihe best  game going," Dubois said.  "It's priceless. They don't  know which end they are going  for half the time; it is just a novelty." Competing for the Coast  in the Novice division will be  the Ducks, Oilers, Panthers, and  Sharks against squads from Port  Coquitlam, Ridge Meadows,  Langley and Hope.  Ten teams will face off in the  Atoms C division, including  three Sechelt teams pitted  against squads from Langley,  Surrey, Burnaby, Mission and  Lake Cowichan.  Kids are guaranteed four  games and the top teams from  the two five-team divisions in  the Atom C tournament will battle it out in a final play-off  game.  "This is the first year we are  doing it. We are hoping it will  grow but we are starting off  small," Dubois said.  Planning for the tournament  began last October and the organizational committee has had a  "bugger of a time" trying to  reserve ice time at the arena, she  added.  "We just get shipped to the  bottom of the pile. There just  isn't enough ice time, that's the  long and short of it."  In related news, Walter Tripp  was named president of the Sunshine Coast Minor Hockey  Association while Trevor Hed-  don will serve as vice president  for the 1994-95 season.  Donna Welda returns as treasurer and Sharon Rumba was  appointed to the registrar's position, j  A runner in the 1993 April Fool's Day Race crosses Ihe finish line in Sechelt.

Those who are unable to attend  are encouraged to submit comments in writing.  Mr. T. Anderson, Secretary-Treasurer  Box 220  Gibsons, B.C. VON 1V0  Squamish, Whistler challenged  to enter April Fool's Day Race  Organizers of the April Fool's  Day Race have challenged runners and walkers in Whistler,  Squamish and North Vancouver  to come out to the Sunshine  Coasl to raise money for the BC  Children's Hospital.  The challenge, issued by race  sponsor Gord Clayton of Frontrunners, also claims that Coast  runners and walkers can beat  runners and walkers from anyplace else in the province.  "We know that Sunshine  Coast runners and walkers have  an edge over everybody else  because it's been spring here  since Feb. I so they've had a lol  more training time," Clayton said  with his tongue firmly in cheek.  The challenge was published  in last week's Whistler Question  and will appear in Ihe Squamish  Chief this week, the Coasl News'  sister newspapers.  So far, though, no word has  been received from the North  Shore News, which was also  asked to print the challenge to its  readers.  7 don't see bow we  could provide a  healthier, more  rewarding day'  ���Gord Clayton  The 16th Annual Sunshine  Coast April Fool's Day Race will  feature an officially sanctioned  22 km half-marathon, a four-person 22 km relay and 10 km walk,  all starting at 9 a.m Sunday,  April 10 in Sechelt, and ending  in Gibsons.  Runners and walkers are  being encouraged lo collect  pledges for their participation  and to donate Ihe proceeds lo the  hospital. "I don'l see how we  could provide a healthier, more  rewarding day for anyone," Clayton said. "Activity to make you  feel good, a chance to help sick  children and a day outdoors on  the Sunshine Coast. What more  could you ask?"  Registration fee per person in  the 22 km run is SIS for entries  postmarked no later than March  25, and $20 after that. For the  four-person relay, the registration  fee per team is $40 if postmarked no later than March 25  and $60 after that.  Walkers can register jusl by  making a donation to the Children's Hospilal. Race T-shirts are  an additional $10 each. Cheques  should be payable to April Fool's  Run and mailed lo Frontrunners,  Box 678, Sechelt, BC VON 3A0.

HOURS ��� MONDAY TO WEDNESDAY 8:00AM TO 5:00PM, THURSDAY AND FRIDAY 8:00AM TO 6:00PM 26  Coast News, March 21, 1994  news  sechelt council notes  Dog bylaw in the works  The District of Sechelt is in the process of  reworking its outdated dog control bylaw.  The new bylaw, which is presently before the  finance committee for review, will present a clearer  policy and "enforcement mechanism" for dealing  with dogs in Sechelt, said municipal clerk Michael  Vaughan.  If the bylaw is formally adopted by council later  this year, dog owners will be required to "stoop  and scoop" their animals' excrement, a policy thai  is nol in Ihe current bylaw. The updated bylaw will  also include a stricter approach to dealing wilh  vicious dogs. "What our new dog bylaw does is  authorize our bylaw enforcement officer to seek a  court order for the control of vicious dogs and  order Ihe destruction of a vicious dog if there are  complaints about (it)," Vaughan said.  Pitched roofs okayed  Council has given approval lo Burtnick Development Lld.'s application for a developmeni variance permit that will allow the developer to exceed  Ihe maximum height permitted for buildings in that  The developer had originally asked for permission to include a pitched roof for ils mixed use  Floor  Floor  ^jaAmiaAh to vent a  facility on Mermaid Street. The inclusion of the  pitched roof would increase ihe height of the building to 12.2 metres, compared lo the previously permitted maximum height of 10.5 metres.  The developer is planning to construct 650  square metres of professional office space on the  ground floor of Ihe building with 16 residential  units on the second and third floors.  Province  cracks  down on  tree  poaching  A jail term and fine handed  out this year to David Archibald  of Bella Bella should serve as a  signal lhat illegal logging in  BC's provincial parks will nol  be tolerated, environment, lands  and parks minister Moe Sihota  said recently.  "By levying a fine and  imposing a jail term, the courts  have recognized that parks are  established for the benefit of all,  not for individual gain," said  Sihota.  Archibald was sentenced to  60 days in jail and fined $5,000  on Feb. 18, 1994 after being  found guilty of illegally hand-  logging in Hakai Recreation  Area, a 122,998-hectare park  managed by BC Parks, 115 km  southwest of Bella Coola. It is  against the Park Act to log in  provincial parks and recreation  areas. "As the value of timber  rises and stricter regulations on  forest practices are imposed,  this type of poaching may  appear to be more attractive to  some," said Sihota. "Poaching  of any kind is abhorrent and we  will seek prosecution against all  offenders."  Sihota said that BC Parks,  the BC Forest Service and Bella  Bella RCMP have begun working together to crack down on  the problem of illegal hand-logging of crown lands in the Central Coast.  As well, he said, the new  provincial compliance and  enforcement teams ��� established to enforce the spirit and  intent of the upcoming Forest  Practices Code prior to it  becoming law later this year ���  will add substantially to the  provincial government's ability  to catch and prosecute people  logging illegally.
