Joel Johnstone file pholo  Son's violent death an  'all-consuming heartache'  by Darah Hansen  They didn't want publicity.  A middle-aged couple, casually dressed, they'd come into  the office looking for a picture  of their son.  They had a clipping which  showed the photo had been published in the Coast News a summer earlier.  It was that of a young man  taking part in a Coast Guard rescue somewhere off the Sunshine  Coast.  "We're Stuart Brown's parents," the woman says, by way  of introduction.  The name is immediately  familiar ��� Stuart Burton  Brown, killed outside a Gibsons bar in a late-night streel  fight September 19, 1993. He  was 29 years old.  The man accused of the  killing, Kiyonori Fujimori, 23,  is scheduled lo appear in Sechelt  Provincial Court this week for a  preliminary hearing on a charge  of second-degree murder.  Brown's parents, Edith and  Burton, are careful nol to discuss any details of the case but  they agree to talk about their son  and the effect his death has had  on Iheir family.  They sit in the office side by  side and fumble for the right  words, words they feel are  appropriate to describe their  feelings.  "It's...it's an all-consuming  heartache," Edith says, apologizing for her hesitalion. The  pain attacks in waves and makes  it hard for her to think straight,  she says.  She tries again.  "I feel like I've been pushed  behind a door and the door's  been closed ... I have no understanding of how one human  being can kill another. You  could never understand that."  The Browns, who live in Sl.  Catherine's, Ontario, lasl saw  Iheir son ��� one of four children  ��� in July of last year.  The parents describe iheir  son as a soft-spoken man, "very  compassionate," yet someone  who didn't turn his back on an  injustice.  Stuart had been a permanenl  resident of the Coast for two  years prior to his death.  "He thought he was in paradise. He felt safe here," his  mother says.  The shock of Stuart's death  last year is the hardest blow the  Brown family has ever had to  endure.  "There's a link in your family chain that's been broken,  snapped.You lose that link and  it draws your family apart. You  lose each other for awhile,"  Edith says.  They've survived because of  the support they've received  from other families, now  friends, who have experienced  Ihe violent death of Iheir own  children.  Meeting these people has  by Ian Cobb  It is the season of Ihe Pigs.  The Gibsons Pigs Rugby Club  climbed lo new heights on Salurday, proving to the doubters thai  Pigs can indeed fly, with a convincing 17-9 victory over Ihe  Kelowna Crows Rugby Club to  claim Ihe Lower Mainland/Vancouver Island Rugby Union division three championship.  Representing Ihe Vancouver  Rugby Union, the Pigs played  before an enthusiastic hometown  crowd of aboul 200 al Langdale  Elementary School, and wilh Ihe  win, capped a dream season lhat  started back in the  fall with a season-  opening win over       the reigning champion Capilanos.  "This is a dream  come true," huffed a  happy but tired and  sore Pigs' team representative Ray  Dow shortly after  the final whistle  tooted. "We've got  to make the most of  this. You don't get       many seasons like  this."  While Dow spoke with ihe  Coasl News, teammates dressed  in their soft-blue team colours  caroused with fans and friends.  It was originally thought the  April 23 contest would be the  provincial final but it has since  been determined, because the  Interior Rugby Union wasn't represented, that a final game needs  to be played in Kamloops on  May!  Most provincial rugby watchers will guardedly remark that if  you win the Lower Mainland title  you may as well be awarded the  provincial crown. Certainly, the  Interior clubs will appreciate the  chance to refute that popular  motion.  The Kelowna Crows arrived  on the Sunshine Coast as Fraser  Valley and Vancouver Island  Rugby Union champs and the  Saturday afternoon clash, played  beneath a blue spring sky, started  out unfavorably for the hometown Pigs.  Kelowna held the edge in the  'We've got to  make the most  of this. You  don't get many  seasons like  this'  -Ray Dow  opening 10 minules even though  ihe Pigs hemmed the team in its  own end.  Everytime it appeared as  though the Pigs were in position  lo score, Ihe Crows would overpower them in ihe scrum and  move the ball safely out.  Thanks to the dominance in  the scrums, Ihe Crows managed  lo raise the ire of the Pigs, who  were dinged for two penalty  kicks back to back in the latter  half of the first.  The Crows "fight like a bunch  of terriers," said Pigs-watcher  Eric Cardinall.  Down 6-0, the  Pigs managed to       battle back deep  into Ihe Crows end  zone as time was  running out in the  half.  After finally win-  ning a scrum, the  Pigs crept to the  Crows' goal line  and after a frantic  scramble, with three  or four Pigs trying  to push through the  Crows line, Jeff  Townsend finally  managed to barge into the end  zone, dragging a Crow with him  for the try.  Dave Strom was good on the  convert and the Pigs took a 7-6  lead into the second half.  Both teams started the second  with renewed zip and thanks to  back-to-back penalty kicks, the  Crows inched into a 9-7 lead.  The Crows' first kick fell short  but 20 seconds later, the kicker  had a chance to try again from  the same spot about 30 feet out  and nailed his target.  It became clear at this point  that a Crow should never anger a  Pig as the hometown side sucked  it up, shifted into fifth and  pushed the game to a level the  Crows couldn't deal with.  About half-way through the  final half, the Pigs scored a textbook try when Dave O'Coffey  became the sixth player to get his  hands on the ball for a brief run  into the corner of the end zone  for the winning try.  turn to  been the only good thing that's  come out of all of Ihis, says  Burton.  "They are the only people  who can fully understand."  These families have also  given (he Browns practical  advice as to whal to expect in  the courtroom ��� advice that, as  secondary victims, they weren't  necessarily entitled to receive  from lawyers involved in the  case.  turn to page 2  Gibsons ice arena acceptable, survey shows  by Don Anderson  Parents of students at Cedar  Grove Elementary School have  indicated they would favor the  construction of a new ice arena  in Gibsons.  According to an informal  survey conducted by grade  seven students Karly Essler,  Kandace Belanger and Randy  Turlock, most parents were willing to pay an additional $55 in  property taxes over the nexl 25  years for the construction of an  arena.  The survey was distributed  to more than 300 parents in  February   and  of  the   131  returned, 117 agreed lo pay ihe  additional tax.  "I wasn't really sure what to  expect," said Essler.  "I thought probably a fair  majority would say yes because  there are a lot of people who do  like skating."  Of the surveys returned, 11  parents said they would nol pay  for an arena, and three others  were undecided.  Essler said Ihe purpose of the  survey was to motivate parents  and the local government to  respond to the community's  need for a facility.  The only ice rink available  on Ihe Sunshine Coast is in  Sechell, which Essler said is too  far oul of the way for most Gibsons residents.  "It is a long way to drive and  an inconvenient way to go, but I  wasn't sure if everyone would  want to pay (the extra $55),"  Essler said.  The exlra $55 a year in property taxes was calculated with  the assistance of the Town of  Gibsons and Ihe Sunshine Coast  Regional Dislricl (SCRD) and  based on the cost of building a  $10 million facility.  The survey was comprised of  three questions:  ��� How many people in your  family like to participate in skating or other activities that  involve an arena?  ��� Would you support an ice  arena in the Gibsons area?  ('Yes' or 'no' reply)  ��� According to our information, a family would pay an  additional $55 a year ($1 week)  on properly taxes for the next 25  years to pay for a new ice arena  in the Gibsons area. Would you  agree lo pay this extra tax?  "If the (Sechelt) arena was up  here, it would be used more  often than it is now," Essler  said.  ���^���n  ~< ���'  ���  ��� Coast News, April 25, 1994  FREE FILM or  -JND  ma4   set  OF PRINTS  WITH EVERY  FILM DEVELOPED  1 HR PHOTOS  5X7 PRINTS 994  BUY, TRADE OR RENT  SEGA, SUPER NINTENDO  TRI ��� PHOTO  I 885-2882  103 -5710 TEREDO ST., SECHELT  news  Pigs made  most of  their  advantages  from page I  The swing oul with the ball  and the manic scampering had  the crowd bellowing like  blissed-oul boars.

Local Government  Awareness Week  "Open House"  Every year the Provincial Government  encourages local Governments to  participate in Local Government  Awareness Month in order to facilitate  the public being better informed as to the  workings of local government. This year  Mayor Earl Basse has declared that the  week of April 18th - 22nd, 1994 will be  Government Awareness Week within  the municipality.  In conjunction with this, the Community  Liason Committee will be holding an  "Open House" at the Municipal Office on  the following dates: Thursdsy, April  21st snd Frldsy, April 22nd from  12:00 noon to 5:00 pm in the Council  Chamber at the Municipal Hall 5545 Inlet  Avenue, Sechelt, B.C.  The general public is invited to drop in  and ask questions of Councillors Michael  Shanks and Stan Dixon, who are  members of the Community Liaison  Committee.  We look forward to a good response  from the public.  Browns say life without  son 'will never be the same'  from page 1  The Browns are only too  thankful for lhal support. Lasl  year, they say, they didn't know  Ihe difference between a bail  hearing and a preliminary hearing. Now they're struggling lo  make sense of Ihe entire justice  system.  They're even trying lo make a  difference. They've been pushing for more rights for secondary  victims such as themselves. "We  want to be able to demand by  law lhat we have communication  (with the lawyers,)" says Burton.  Currently, the court system  makes no concession to people  not directly involved in a case.  The family has also been  actively involved in a group  called Canadians Against Violence Everywhere Advocating its  Termination or CAVEAT.  "One thing we're aiming for,"  says Burton. "We want to make  sure that Stuart didn't die for  nothing." By now, Ihe Browns  have been talking for about an  hour and Edith is anxious to  leave. Talking about Stuart is  upsetting her ��� something she's  trying to avoid before Monday's  preliminary hearing.  The couple gets up to leave  and Edith offers a closing sentence. "You can end it by saying  life will never be the same for  us...never be the same."  Stuart Brown's father, Burton Brown of St. Catherine's, Ontario  has come to BC to observe trial proceedings in his son's death.  The proceedings begin today. Joel Johnstone photo  IWMP offers 'range of concessions'  by Ian Cobb, part two of two  The "enthusiastic support" of  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District should be gained before  firm decisions are made regarding the future of the Sunshine  Coast's main water supply.  Because the SCRD represents  the "broad interests of the public," its blessing should be  obtained before an Integrated  Watershed Management Plan  (IWMP) draft on the Chapman  and Gray Creek Watershed is  approved, the Tetrahedron  Alliance says in a March 24  response letter to the IWMP  committee.  "It is important to point oul  that the IWMP process has been  more a process of negotiation  than one of scientific information-gathering and conclusion.  The options offered at the public  review do not rest on a firm scientific basis; rather they represent a range of concessions to the  vested interests represented at the  table," says the response letter  signed by Dan Bouman.  "That statement isn't entirely  true," said Marion Jamieson of  BC Environment, who compiled  information and edited the  .report,      ,���,. ,..  , "Jljere's been some very  good scientific work.done.  We've also had the fortune of  having the three hydrologists  who did the Cumulative Effects  Announcing...  Dr. Scott Russell - Podiatrist  is available 2 Thursdays a month  for the treatment of all foot disorders.  Phone Gibsons Medical Clinic  for appointment  886-2221  Gibsons Yacht Club  JUNIOR SAILING PROGRAM  The Junior Sailing program will be  starting again this spring and will run  throughout the summer. The purpose  of the program is to teach young  people to sail. Instruction will be  provided by Canadian Yachting  Association (CYA) qualified  instructors.  For further information please contact:  Dm Smethurst, IM-SM4 or the Gibsoni Yacht Club, iM-ISOO  Analysis. They're very informed  and objective people."  While the Alliance agrees the  work done by the three hydrologists, contained in Appendix  Five of the draft, is detailed and  important, its members have also  expressed regrets that "committee members do not recognize  the implications of this information."  Rates of hydrological recovery to harvested sites offer a  good example of this, Bouman  said. .      ,,,..  A hydrologically recovered  site is described in Ihe draft as  having "a root network and  canopy closure that intercepts  groundwater al the same rate as a  mature forest. A newly clearcut  site is considered to be 100-percent hydrologically unrecovered,  or as having a 100-per-cent  Equivalent Clearcut Area (ECA).  A site with average tree  heights over aboul nine metres in  height is considered to be 100-  per-cent hydrologically recovered or as having a zero-per-cent  ECA."  Bouman asks, "Should the  allowable level of hydrological  'un-recovery' be 25 per cent (as  recommended in the draft for  Chapman Creek) or 30 per cenl  (for Gray Creek)?"  Such percentages and figures  shouldn't be bandied about as a  "negotiated answer to this question," he says. "Professionals  working with the public interest  at heart would review the pertinent scientific literature and  make appropriately conservative  recommendations."  "Coming up with an IWMP is  an exceedingly complex undertaking," Jamieson replies. "It is  not as easy as it sounds. Any  planning process relies on Ihe  data thai is available and data can  never eliminate uncertainly. The  participants have lo deal wilh a  high level of uncertainly."  In conclusion, Bouman warns  that if the Ministry of Forests  "proceeds without the agreement  of local elected authorities, we  will have no other options but to  seek fairness and responsibility  at other levels of government."  CUPE 801  Canadian Union of Public Employees  DAY OF MOURNING  April 28th is a day set aside in  memory of workers who have been hurt  or killed on the job  Please join us for a moment of silence at 1 lam Coast News, April 25,1994  news  Organic produce stand an 'education tool'  by Ian Cobb  Clutching a deli coffee and  shouldering a squirming toddler,  Michael appreciatively scanned  the produce stand and declared,  "This is the Granville Island of  Gibsons."  Michael is one of many Sunshine Coast residents who frequent the organic produce stand  beside Variety Foods and Deli  on Gower Point Road in lower  Gibsons.  The stand is open every Friday and Saturday and features a  wide variety of locally grown,  Similkameen Valley, Californi-  an and other imported organic  goods.  "It's the only way to go.  Anything that isn't organic is  screwing up everything else,"  says stand proprietor Nancy  Gaudry, who operates as a part  of Variety Foods.  The stand is a step back in  time (except for the larger cooler  in Ihe back), with produce sitting in baskets placed on wooden shelves and a variety of  scents ��� fruit and vegetable ���  tickling the nostrils into a Pavlo-  vian fervour.  With the backdrop of Gibsons Harbour, it's also a popular  spot for tourists to stop and  browse as they take the tour  through lower Gibsons and  Molly's Lane.  "I'm always telling people  how to get here or there and if I  can't, I can at least tell them  who can give them better directions," Gaudry said.  The organic stand is more  lhan just a part-time business;  it's an attempt to educate society  on values of using organically  grown produce. Usually a lively  soul, armed with a smile a second, Gaudry turns reverent when  _____ "  1   * I  K* - "'"am  7 1 'm*)-<Fm^^\  \\\\\\\\\\\\ww *  ,r--mWM  1    /   g��  Lb   1  W_-'^lm__________wF         P^^^M  ^^^. i^l  __r^  The Town of Gibsons has served notice on Nancy Gaudry's organic vegetable stand.  Keith Thirkell photo  she discusses the merits of  organic produce.  "It's about integrity for ourselves, the earth and the whole  picture and the sooner we realize  that, the better off  we'll be," she ���������  said.  Organic produce is produce  that's grown without the use of  chemical fertilizers, pesticides,  herbicides or  fungicides.  To keep her ���������  stand stocked, she  purchases goods from a variety  of Sunshine Coast growers as  well as from the Similkameen  Valley (Cawston) and from a  growing number of large farms  in California.  'It's about integrity  for ourselves, the  earth and the  whole picture'  -Nancy Gaudry  stunningly beautiful, steep-  sided, red-rock valley between  Keremeos and Osoyoos) "is a  stronghold of organic growing  in BC," Gaudry said.  However, the  ��������������� Sunshine Coast-  grown produce  she gets is plentiful and beautifully  grown.  "It's amazing  what we get. The  selection is amazing. You can  almost get any-  ^~~~" thing you want  that's seasonally  grown."  Seasonally grown is a catchword, she said. Organic produce  will be seasonal rather than  "non-organically produced stuff  which is available 12 months of  The Similkameen Valley (the      the year."  California is another hot-bed  of organic growing.  "People knock California  farms but there are some really  big farms there. These are huge  farms feeding the world and  they're proving it can be done  successfully" without chemicals,  she said.  The Gower Point Road stand  is the only completely organic  produce stand on the Coast and  one that is visited by a faithful  and steady throng of Coast residents and visitors, Gaudry said,  noting her clientele isn't just one  type or tribe of people.  "They come from every walk  of life for multiple reasons.  "There's no other place like  this on the Sunshine Coast,  where everything is organic.  You don't have to go, 'Is this  organic? Is that organic?' ��� it  is!" she said.  Town orders organic produce stand moved  by Ian Cobb  She's been in the same location for over three years but  now, it seems, the Town of Gibsons wants her to move.  Citing building code violation inSaparking bylaw requirements, Gibsons has ordered  organic produce merchant  Nancy Gaudry to pack up and  vacate her spot beside Variety  Foods and Deli on Gower Point  Road by noon Monday, April  25.  "The town has said after I've  been here three and a half years,  all of a sudden my stand is illegal," Gaudry said.  She scoffs at the stand not  meeling building code requirements; she said the version currently standing is besl built  structure out of various past versions.  "It's far better, far safer and  far more ssthelically pleasing  than anything I've had here  before," she said.  And as far as the parking  concerns about the store and  stand, she said, "no one ever  parks here. There's tons of park-  ing.  Technically part of Variety  Foods, Gaudry's operation is on  an old concrete foundation  beside the building.  The town maintains the area  requires five parking spaces for  the store and deli and two parking sites for a residence in back.  "Each business must be able  to supply designated parking  and no structures can be built on  the parking areas;  otherwise it ���������������  obstructs parking.  "She's been  advised to take the  structure down and  move to where it  can be operated  legally," said town  administrator Dan  Legg.  The lean-to  "didn't structurally  meet the building  code and the roof- _____  ing material didn't  meet the code."  In November 1993 town  building inspector Roland  Seguin, apparently after checking a wood-burning stove in a  nearby residence, noticed the  stand didn't have a building permit and soon after, ordered it  closed down.  The parking issue was later  added to the case.  In December '93 the lown  posted an illegal structure notice  on one of the support beams of  the stand ��� though Gaudry  remained open.  'She's been  advised to take  the  structure (town  and move to  where it can be  operated legally'  -Dan legg  On April 8, Gaudry received  a letter from Seguin that stated:  "You are ...required to remove  this structure, along with related  materials, and return the use of  this area of the lot for parking  purposes without  further delay, and  in any event no  later than 12 noon  on Monday, April  25,1994."  "We've waited  to give her some  time to solve her  problems," Legg  said.  Had Gaudry  upgraded the  stand to meet  _____ building code  requirements and  found alterative parking places  for the store/stand, the issue  would have been resolved, Legg  said.  Alternative parking could be  parking spaces "nearby" the  store.  "Parking is a sensitive issue  in Lower Gibsons. Council is  very careful about considering  any variance on any area that is  short of parking," Legg said.  Gaudry said she was told she  could apply for a variance permit and try lo take that route but  she opted not to.  "I'm not going to spend a  thousand bucks for a 50-50  answer,"she said.  , The fact the town has suddenly insisted she move has the  part-time produce purveyor feel-  1 ing like the town Is against her  operation.  Calling the order a "municipal prejudice," Gaudry said she  can't understand her operation  being closed after three-and-  one-half years. "All of a sudden  they're saying you're against the  law. It'a so stupid."  She wondered why the town  didn't react when she put up her  first lean-to, which was "basically a tarp and a couple of  sticks."  The current stand was professionally built and she had  planned to upgrade it further.  Though uncertain about what  she was going to do about the  parking issue, Gaudry had  received permission from Variety Foods' owners to relocate  her operation to the front of the  store ��� an area about half the  size of the current site.  And if the stand isn't taken  down by noon April 25, Legg  said, "we would follow through  on any procedure to ensure the  lean-to is taken down and the  operation doesn't continue in  the parking lot."

"We  want to be able lo demand by  law thai we have communication  (with the lawyers,)" says Burton.  Currently, the court system  makes no concession to people  nol directly involved in a case.  The family has also been  actively involved in a group  called Canadians Against Violence Everywhere Advocating ils  Termination or CAVEAT.  "One Ihing we're aiming for,"  says Burton. "We want to make  sure that Stuart didn't die for  nothing." By now, the Browns  have been talking for about an  hour and Edith is anxious to  leave. Talking about Stuart is  upsetting her ��� something she's  trying to avoid before Monday's  preliminary hearing.  The couple gets up to leave  and Edith offers a closing sentence.

Joel Johnstone photo  IWMP offers 'range of concessions'  by Ian Cobb, part two of two  The "enthusiastic support" of  the Sunshine Coasl Regional  District should be gained before  firm decisions are made regarding the future of the Sunshine  Coast's main water supply.  Because the SCRD represents  the "broad interests of the public," its blessing should be  obtained before an Integrated  Watershed Management Plan  (IWMP) draft on the Chapman  and Cray Creek Watershed i.s  approved, the Tetrahedron  Alliance says in a March 24  response letter to the IWMP  committee.  "It is important to point out  that the IWMP process has been  more a process of negotiation  than one of scientific information-gathering and conclusion.  The options offered at the public  review do not rest on a firm scientific basis; rather they represent a range of concessions to the  vested interests represented at the  table," says the response letter  signed by Dan Bouman.  "That statement isn't entirely  true," said Marion Jamieson of  BC Environment, who compiled  information and edited the  report,        I "There's been some very  good scientific work done.  We've also had Ihe fortune of  having the three hydrologists  who did the Cumulative Effects  Announcing...

For further information please contact:  Dire Smethurtt, IM-1M4 or the Gibtont Yacht Club, IM-ISOO  Analysis. They're very informed  and objective people."  While the Alliance agrees Ihe  work done by Ihe three hydrologists, contained in Appendix  Five of the draft, is detailed and  important, its members have also  expressed regrets that "committee members do not recognize  the implications of this information."  Rates of hydrological recovery to harvested sites offer a  good example of Ihis, Bouman  said.  L/. .,,,���,  A hydrologically recovered  site is described in the draft as  having "a root network and  canopy closure that intercepts  groundwater at the same rate as a  mature forest. A newly clearcut  site is considered to be 100-per-  cent hydrologically unrecovered,  or as having a 100-per-cent  Equivalent Clearcut Area (ECA).  A site with average tree  heights over about nine metres in  height is considered to be 100-  per-cent hydrologically recovered or as having a zero-per-cent  ECA."  Bouman asks, "Should Ihe  allowable level of hydrological  'un-recovery' be 25 per cent (as  recommended in the draft for  Chapman Creek) or 30 per cent  (for Gray Creek)?"  Such percentages and figures  shouldn't be bandied about as a  "negotiated answer to this question," he says. "Professionals  working with the public interest  at heart would review the pertinent scientific literature and  make appropriately conservative  recommendations."  "Coming up with an IWMP is  an exceedingly complex undertaking," Jamieson replies. "It is  not as easy as it sounds. Any  planning process relies on the  data that is available and dala can  never eliminate uncertainty. The  participants have to deal with a  high level of uncertainty."  In conclusion, Bouman warns  thai if the Ministry of Forests  "proceeds without the agreement  of local elected authorities, we  will have no other options but to  seek fairness and responsibility  at other levels of government."  CUPE 801  Canadian Union of Public Employees  DAY OF MOURNING  April 28th is a day set aside in  memory of workers who have been hurt  or killed on the fob  Please join us for a moment of silence at 1 lam Coast News, April 25, 1994  news  Organic produce stand an 'education tool'  by Ian Cobb  Clutching a deli coffee and  shouldering a squirming toddler,  Michael appreciatively scanned  the produce stand and declared,  "This is the Granville Island of  Gibsons."  Michael is one of many Sunshine Coast residents who frequent the organic produce stand  beside Variety Foods and Deli  on Gower Point Road in lower  Gibsons.  The stand is open every Friday and Saturday and features a  wide variety of locally grown,  Similkameen Valley, Californi-  an and other imported organic  goods.  "It's the only way to go.  Anything that isn't organic is  screwing up everything else,"  says stand proprietor Nancy  Gaudry, who operates as a part  of Variety Foods.  The stand is a step back in  lime (except for the larger cooler  in the back), with produce sitting in baskets placed on wooden shelves and a variety of  scents ��� fruit and vegetable ���  tickling the nostrils into a Pavlo-  vian fervour.  With the backdrop of Gibsons Harbour, il's also a popular  spot for tourists to stop and  browse as they take the tour  through lower Gibsons and  Molly's Lane.  "I'm always telling people  how to get here or there and if I  can't, I can at least tell them  who can give them better directions," Gaudry said.  The organic stand is more  than just a part-time business;  it's an attempt to educate society  on values of using organically  grown produce. Usually a lively  soul, armed with a smile a second, Gaudry turns reverent when  __k____r  \\____\\___\t s  ^_\__________w  1  W  ''������" fl  pi^^B __%r g  PP^   *W/  .  L     *^*\  1 a8H  1  \ ^^1  El  ^  The Town of Gibsons has served notice on Nancy Gaudry's organic vegetable stand.  Keilh Thirkell pholo  she discusses the merits of  organic produce.  "It's about integrity for ourselves, the earth and the whole  picture and the sooner we realize  that, the belter off  we'll be," she ���������  said.  Organic produce is produce  that's grown without the use of  chemical fertilizers, pesticides,  herbicides or  fungicides.  To keep her    ���-^^~  stand slocked, she  purchases goods from a variety  of Sunshine Coast growers as.  well as from the Similkameen  Valley (Cawston) and from a  growing number of large farms  in California.  'It's about integrity  for ourselves, the  earth and the  whole picture'  -Nancy Gaudry  stunningly beautiful, steep-  sided, red-rock valley between  Keremeos and Osoyoos) "is a  stronghold of organic growing  in BC," Gaudry said.  However, the  ��������� Sunshine Coast-  grown produce  she gets is plentiful and beautifully  grown.  "It's amazing  what we get. The  selection is amazing. You can  almost get anything you want  that's seasonally  grown."  Seasonally grown is a catchword, she said. Organic produce  will be seasonal rather than  "non-organically produced stuff  which is available 12 months of  The Similkameen Valley (the     the year."  California is another hot-bed  of organic growing.  "People knock California  farms but there are some really  big farms there. These are huge  farms feeding the world and  they're proving il can be done  successfully" without chemicals,  she said.  The Gower Point Road stand  is the only completely organic  produce stand on the Coast and  one that is visited by a faithful  and steady throng of Coast residents and visitors, Gaudry said,  noting her clientele isn't just one  type or tribe of people.  "They come from every walk  of life for multiple reasons.  "There's no other place like  this on the Sunshine Coast,  where everything is organic.  You don't have to go, 'Is this  organic? Is that organic?' ��� it  isl" she said.  Town orders organic produce stand moved  by Ian Cobb  She's been in the same location for over three years but  now, it seems, the Town of Gibsons wants her to move.  1 Cltjng building code viola-  tlohs irid parking bylaw requirements, Gibsons has ordered  organic produce merchant  Nancy Gaudry to pack up and  vacate her spot beside Variety  Foods and Deli on Gower Point  Road by noon Monday, April  25.  "The town has said after I've  been here three and a half years,  all of a sudden my stand is illegal," Gaudry said.  She scoffs at the stand not  meeting building code requirements; she said the version currently standing is best built  structure out of various past versions.  "It's far belter, far safer and  far more aesthetically pleasing  lhan anything I've had here  before," she said.  And as far as the parking  concerns about the store and  stand, she said, "no one ever  parks here. There's tons of parking."  Technically part of Variety  Foods, Gaudry's operation is on  an old concrete foundation  beside the building.  The town maintains the area  requires five parking spaces for  the store and deli and two parking sites for a residence in back.  "Each business must be able  to supply designated parking  and no structures can be built on  the parking areas;  otherwise it ���  obstructs parking.  "She's been  advised to take the  structure down and  move to where it  can be operated  legally," said town  administrator Dan  Legg-  The lean-to  "didn't structurally  meet the building  code and the roof- ____m  ing material didn't  meet the code."  In November 1993 lown  building inspector Roland  Seguin, apparently after checking a wood-burning stove in a  nearby residence, noticed the  stand didn't have a building permit and soon after, ordered it  closed down.  The parking issue was later  added to the case.  In December '93 the town  posted an illegal structure notice  on one of the support beams of  the stand ��� though Gaudry  remained open.  'She's been  advised to take  the  structure dawn  and move to  where it can he  operated legally'  ���Dan Legg  On April 8, Gaudry received  a letter from Seguin that staled:  "You are ...required to remove  this structure, along with related  materials, and return the use of  this area of the lot for parking  purposes without  further delay, and  in any event no  later than 12 noon  on Monday, April  25,1994."  "We've waited  to give her some  time to solve her  problems," Legg  said.  Had Gaudry  upgraded the  stand to meet  __^^_ building code  requirements and  found alterative parking places  for the atore/stand, the issue  would have been resolved, Legg  said.  Alternative parking could be  parking spaces "nearby" the  store.  "Parking is a sensitive issue  in Lower Gibsons. Council is  very careful about considering  any variance on any area that is  short of parking," Legg said.  Gaudry said she was told she  could apply for a variance permit and try to take that route but  she opted not to.  "I'm not going to spend a  thousand bucks for a 50-50  answer,"she said.  , The fact the town has sud-  j denly insisted she move has the  part-time produce purveyor feel-  1 ing like the town is againsf her  operation.  Calling the order a "municipal prejudice," Gaudry said she  can't understand her operation  being closed after three-and-  one-half years. "All of a sudden  they're saying you're against the  law. It'a so stupid."  She wondered why the town  didn't react when she put up her  first lean-to, which was "basically a tarp and a couple of  sticks."  The current stand was professionally built and she had  planned to upgrade it further.  Though uncertain about what  she was going to do about the  parking issue, Gaudry had  received permission from Variety Foods' owners to relocate  her operation to the front of the  store ��� an area about half the  size of the current site.  And if the stand isn't taken  down by noon April 25, Legg  said, "we would follow through  on any procedure to ensure the  lean-to is taken down and the  operation doesn't continue in  the parking lot."

No one wants  unsightly permanent structures being built in a commercial  area that is used by both residents and tourists.  Neither do we wish to see huge commercial establishments  being erected in downtown Gibsons unless they are prepared  to make some provision for parking, as our bylaws require.  However, we are at a loss to explain the harshness with  which the bylaws are being enforced against the small, part-  time organic produce business being operated by Nancy  Gaudry on the concrete pad next to Variety Foods in lower  Gibsons.  Gaudry's operation is not a huge commercial establishment, by any means; it's a part-time operation, open only on  Fridays and Saturdays during the warmest time of the year.  To suggest that this very small operation is a major contributor to parking problems in lower Gibsons is ludicrous. For  heaven' sake, this isn't Costco or a Superstore.  Many, if not most, of Gaudry's patrons go out of their way  to avoid using vehicles when they drop in to make their purchases of organic fruit or vegetables. And even if they didn't,  the small area occupied by this tiny part-time business hardly  constitutes a major infringement on the parking space that  Variety Foods is required to provide for its own premises.  The lean-to which the produce stand uses is also not a permanent building structure and should not be judged as such.  However, nothing about it appears either unsafe or unsightly.  In fact, tht stand provides the lower Gibsons shopping district with a certain human charm ��� as well as a produce alternative ��� that would be missed if it were moved or shut down.  As we said earlier, we understand the need for rules and  regulations. And were a major discount store planning to  build on the site and stay open 24 hours a day, we would support strict enforcement of building standards and the parking  bylaws.  However, the personnel employed by the town to enforce  the rules, and the politicians who oversee them, should possess enough common sense to distinguish between a major  commercial development and a marginal operation that actually contributes in a small way to the commercial diversity  and viability of a section of the town that is already endangered.  Such harsh enforcement of the bylaws is likely to inflict  more economic damage on lower Gibsons than it would to  allow Gaudry to continue with her seasonal business.  Pride in Pigs' progress  Congratulations are due to the Gibsons Pigs for winning the  divisional rugby championship, even if their team name  invokes a certain questionable characterization of the residents of this Sunshine Coast community.  Nevertheless, the Pigs have lived up to their name in the  sense that they were not afraid to get their hooves dirty as they  dug their way through game after game to the final.  We expect to see them exhibit some of these same down-  and-dirty traits when they move on to the official provincial  championship in Kamloops on May 7.  Gibsons Pigs, what else can we say?  We're rooting for you. (And yes, the pun is intentional.)  Winds of change  blowing  After spending eight years  away from the Sunshine Coast I  recently returned for a week's  holiday. I was surprised and  delighted to see the developmental changes that have taken  place over these few years.  The growth of Gibsons and  the Wilson Creek areas were  among the most astonishing.  Both areas have maintained  their distinct style while encompassing the changes which are  needed lo cater to the influx of  new residents and businesses.  The area of Sechelt seems to  be somewhat stagnant. Although  there are many new restaurants  there does not seem to be the  boom which has struck Gibsons  and Wilson Creek.  The area within Sechelt  which appears to be the most  progressive is in the Sechelt  Indian Band Lands. The growth  which has taken place sine*  their attaining self-government  appears to have taken a band  from the destitute to the affluent. But at what price?  For a people who state that  they are in touch with the environment and speak out against  the destruction of the nature  which surrounds them I am  appalled at Ihe "rape" of the  land which is taking place above  Porpoise Bay.  It this not what the  Native/Aboriginal People of  British Columbia are so vocal  about? Do they not keep repealing over and over that Ihe Cau  casians have been desecrating  the land for centuries? How can  they expect Caucasians to  respecl their voice if visions of  such desecration are taking  place under their noses?  I was in attendance at the  Tolem Pole-raising ceremony  outside of Sechelt Elementary a  few years ago where speeches  were made stating how they  were now going to take control  of Iheir lands and their lives. If  Ihis is how ihey control Iheir  lands they are no better lhan the  Caucasians. No matter how they  plan lo re-establish the environment after the closure of the  gravel pit il will never be the  same. The land is scarred forever.  I realize that the people of the  Sechelt Band need employment  but are they nol executing what  they so adamantly argue againsl  regarding the forestry companies, fishing departments, and  wildlife conservation groups as  conducting."  How can they expect the residents of Sechelt, or the Sunshine  Coast for that matter, to lake  Iheir arguments over sinking a  wreck in the bay to create a reef  for divers to heart when one  only has to look up the hill and  see what the results are from six  years of so-called developmeni?  Respect has to be earned, it is  not freely given. People learn  from example; it is all learned  behaviour.  We learn from our parents  and those around us. It is possible that the Aboriginals learned  from the Caucasians but maybe  it is lime for the Aboriginals to  take a good hard look at whal is  happening and as a Nation lake  a stand and change the  behaviour.  It is lime to research different  venues of development, to put  back lhat which we as a people  bi   ''' -.

UNDERWOOD  Vancouver  OCP draft  'unacceptable*  RE: Your April 14 article on  the Sechell OCP  Upon review of the draft  OCP, the Wilson Creek/Davis  Bay/Selma Park OCP Subcommittee finds the draft document  totally unacceptable. The proposed document is devoid of  any firm policy direction and  does nol contain specifics on  any iss,w,   As,,requested,, our group,  deliberated painstakingly, night  afler night for months and  months, over specifics on every  issue which affects our communily.  Further we senl representatives to Ihe umbrella OCP committee to examine our recomem-  ndations in Ihe context of  Sechell as a whole.  We see  none of our efforts reflected in  this document. Our feeling is  thai ihis proposed OCP is worse  lhan the already existing OCP.  P.STANLEY-CLARKE,  Chairman,  Wilson Creek/Davis  Bay/Selma Park  OCP Subcommittee  Blue Jays'game was a sell-out. in more ways than one  Back in my misspent youth (and there really  isn't any other kind), I was a boy of summer. I  couldn't wait to gel oul on the diamond when the  baseball season started.  In fact, I was frequently a source of irritation to  some of my more hockey-oriented pals, who wanted to extend Ihe hockey season by playing on the  road, long after the ice on the local rink had melted. (In the small community in which I lived, you  were lucky to have a rink with a roof, never mind  something as exotic as artificial ice.) Oh, sure, I  played hockey, too, and football, but my passion  was baseball.  So while my friends were dragging out ihe  hockey season, I was hurrying the baseball season.  I'd have my glove oul ��� oiling it and working il  into shape ���long before the sun had dried the  gravelled baseball diamonds or the back yard, trying lo con my playmate hockey fanatics inlo a  game of calch, at the very least, just so I could get  in some pre-season practice.  In Little League, my first taste of organized  baseball, I had started in the outfield, but had  quickly been channeled by my coaches to playing  third base, a position I grew to love ��� so much so,  lhat 1 kepi playing third all through Little League  and on into Pony League, which took over where  Little League left off.  But early on, my coaches had drummed into me  thai the key to playing third was the throw ��� the  peg ��� to first. I took some pride in getting it right  and getting it better every year ��� and practicing  between the lines  the peg was what I wanted to do even before anyone put their hockey sticks away.  Keen as I was about baseball, though, I was  never that much of a sports spectator. I do remember a period where, like the rest of my playmates, I  cheered for the Yanks or the Dodgers (back when  Ihey were still the Brooklyn Dodgers) in the World  Series, but it just wasn't Ihe same as gelling out on  the field myself.  I never did develop much of a taste for spectator  sports after I became an adull, either. So when I  won a trip to tee Ihe Blue lays play in Toronto's  Skydome lul week, tome of my friends couldn't  resist taunting me aboul the trip being wasted on  me.  I didn't think of it that way. Having a good seal  ��� in Ihe first section behind home plate ��� seemed  like a good way for to sample what so many fans  in Toronlo turned out in the thousands lo see every  year.  It turned out to be a much more interesting  experience that I expected it would be, even if it  larry marshal!  wasn't a particularly good game ��� Toronto  creamed the Texas Rangers 15-2.  There was a particularly tense moment in the  bottom of the fifth inning; the Rangers' starting  pitcher, who to that point had let in nine runs, was  pulled, replaced by a pitcher who had only the previous day been picked up from Oklahoma City.  After he warmed up with the catcher, a Blue  Jays' batter stepped up to the plate ��� and smashed  the ball oul of Ihe park ��� a distance of between  375 and 400 feet, according the marker on ihe end  wall ��� for a home run.  Frankly, I left after lhal fifth inning, certain in  my own mind that the Rangers weren't going to  make an eight-run comeback.  Betides, a lot of the action teemed to be happening outside the Skydome itself.  Although game time was 7:30 pm, hundreds of  people were gathering around outside the 'Dome  at early as 5 pm. They huddled in groups, rallied  around the purveyors of peanutt and sellers of  foam-rubber Toronto Blue Jay-heads. And for peo  ple-watching, you couldn't beat it; everybody was  there ��� an actor whose face was familiar from  Canadian TV, people in three-piece suits and over-  coals, trendily costumed skate-boarders, media  photographers and camera people, men and women  in about equal numbers, children in packs...  So what did they do for two hours before game  time? They spent money, that's what...before, during and after the game.  They paid for parking, for buses, for snacks, for  booze, for souvenir T-shirts, for rooms in the Skydome Hotel, where sides of ihe building actually  face out onto the ball diamond; in some of these,  the doors to the hallway were thrown open, revealing guests watching the game as they partied.  Others, seemingly not happy wilh Ihe various  food and beverage services provided in the 'Dome,  dined or drank in restaurants over-looking ihe  field.  Outside those tame windows, banners continuously unfolded a stream of product advertisements  for the benefit of the spectators in the stands.  Outside the 'Dome, ticket scalpen lurked,  approached, backed off...  The game wat told out, they told ut. Too true!  Whatever else is said, this is what major league  baseball is really about today ��� making money in  a big way.  The baseball played here is not the baseball featured in the movie Field of Dreams. But then, the  primary purpose of lhal movie wat to make  money...

Our Coast may be Pompeii by the sea  I remember Ihe photographs  of Pompeii with the Mediterranean sun so full and bursting  with lighl. These were young  days of Latin study, when the  pictures were always more interesting than the words.  I would drift away from the  declension drills, thinking about  ihe people of Pompeii and their  beauliful summer-like world.  How could they have ignored  Ihe monsler which was Ihe volcano al their doorstep? The  monster who warned them  daily, who reminded them with  the smoke and the fire and volcanic rumblings?  And yet, lovers were caught  in lender embrace, oblivious to  Ihe sea of lava which pushed  open Iheir doors, swallowed  Ihem up and captured their  forms forever. The entire cily  was buried alive. I was fascinated. How could an entire cily be  so blind?  And yet Earth Day, 1994 has  just passed. How well are we  listening to the prophets of  doom?  The ozone depletion: Are we  still chopping trees down like  ihere is an endless supply of old  growth forests, the lungs of the  planet? Who is using bicycles as  a true alternative to driving  cars? Has the electric or alternate-fuel vehicle been presented  to Ihe car-buying public? Where  is ihe bike lane anyway? Is it  mountains of things  any safer to take a shower or sit  in a hot tub of chlorinated water  than it was a year ago? Are we  in control of our watershed yet,  or do jobs still drive the quality  of our water down and the price  of it up?  Is anyone doing anything to  make a difference in the environmental degradation of our  world? Is there any good news?  And can 1 stand to hear any  more bad news?  What about the propane  tanks, eyesores and potential  hazard for the community of  Roberts Creek? Ten years after  public outcry and promises that  the lease won't be renewed, they  still sit there.  The bike lane: We're still  waiting for Victoria to say 'yes.'  We can lax ourselves lo build  the bike lane that we voted for  in the lasl referendum. The  March 31 budget has been put to  ink, but does it leave us pedalling an exercycle in front of  the TV?  Good news: There's a bike-  caitlin hicks  lovers', bike-land group headed  by Gordon Clayton with meetings in Pender, Sechell and Gibsons and they're planning to  fundraise in the community to  build a bike path anyway.  There's a club of youngster  mountain bikers, headed by  Doug Detweiller, teacher at  Gibsons elementary with reports  of up to 200 kids attending  meetings.  They want lo mountain bike.  And they've turned the Gibsons  landfill site into a mountain bike  park and TSN is coming up to  film them soon.  And Carole Ann Glover, who  is one of two people I know  who really does bike instead of  drive a car, said just yesterday,  "I never used to pass anybody  on bikes and now every time I  go out I pass two or three people" What is that? The result of  Ihe increase in population? Or  are more people taking to the  streets on bicycles?  The bad news for our landfill, for cows and for local  restaurants: McDonald's is coming lo Sechelt. How are we  going lo reduce our garbage by  50 per cenl by the year 2000 if  we let lhat packaging pig into  town'.'  Good and bad together: The  Leader went of out business, Ihe  communily misses ils alternative voice, but ponder this: How  many trees won't have to be cut  down to provide the newsprint  it's used lo order? And jusl  when we thought there were  only two papers in town...oh, no  nol another newspaper in  Sechell.  Okay, it's only one readable  sheet, but...good news: it's  printed on hemp. Sit up and take  notice.  The Gumboot Garden won't  serve coffee in disposable cups.  They do have 'to-go' cups,  which you can borrow, wash up  and return at your convenience.  The status quo: If you want  disposable and you can't get it  at the Gumboot, the Roberts  Creek General Store, just across  the street will indulge you. One  step forward. One step back.  Good news: Ihere are three  recycling depots on the Sunshine Coast: GRIPS (Pender  Harbour) is now under the  umbrella of SCRAPS. And  Clayton's now has a functioning  recycling depot.

Three years ago,  unfortunately, I was divorced.  Therefore I became a single  mother of two children.  My ex-husband has been giving me child support money  since our divorce. Note 'child'  support, nol 'alimony'. I am  able-bodied and hard working at  ihe same job I've had since  1977.  Unfortunately even though I  am a fully qualified tradesper-  son (a hairdresser) my wages  could not possibly support  myself and our two children.  This is a fact of life for many  traditionally 'female jobs.'  My bone of contention is,  why do I have to declare ihe  money given for helping support  ihe children as income lo me? If  we were still married and my  husband gave me money lo buy  ihe kids shoes and food, I would  not have to declare Ihis as  income.  So what difference should il  make if we are divorced? They  are still both of our children and  responsibilities.  Raising children is a hard  enough job on a limited income,  but having the government persecute you because your marriage failed is unfair.  EVEQUIGLEY  Gibsons  On the firing line  I am wriling concerning Jus-  lice Minister Rock's comments  on banning all legally owned  handguns. The Canadian taxpayer is once again being taken  to the cleaners because of the  minister's ineptness.  Firearms control in Canada  has never been cost-effective,  wastes precious police resources  and is based on grossly inadequate research.  In Ontario, the Solicitor General launched an investigation  called Operation Gun Runner. It  found lhat 86 per cenl of handguns used in crime were smuggled inlo Canada from Ihe United Stales and not stolen from  private homes in Canada.  Two young smugglers picked  up in a seal-belt check were  found to have smuggled over  300 handguns across the Windsor border crossing and sold  them on the slreel in Toronto.  Their lucrative business is a  drop in Ihe bucket; theirs is nol a  major operation.  Twenly-six thousand people  a day cross the border from  Detroit to Windsor.We share the  largest border in Ihe world wilh  Ihe largest repository of firearms  in the world.  Oul of over one million  legally owned and regislered  handguns in Canada lasl year,  four were used to commit a  crime.  Firearms, through excessive  regulation, have now become,  like cigarettes, objects of underground Irade among otherwise  law-abiding citizens.  The members of Canada's  recreational firearms communily  are fed up with being used as  scapegoats for the present and  previous Ministers of Justices'  Mon tint.

DESMOND KEDDIE  BC President  National Firearms Association  Go for the  home-grown  Hurray for local farmers'  markets!  Since agriculture is a major  contributor to our economy, it is  a system well worth supporting.  By improving our reliance on  BC's food supply, we are  improving the control we have  over how our food is produced.  BC is on Ihe leading edge of  adopting environmentally sensitive farming practices.  Many BC (and our own  local) producers use preferred  habits such as growing a variety  of crops and crop rotation.  This improves soil quality,  controls disease and minimizes  or eliminates the use of chemicals. This is in contrast to mono-  cropping which requires the  heavy use of herbicides, pesticides and synlhetic fertilizers.  Whether we patronize very  locally grown products from  farmers' markets or shop conscientiously from our local  supermarkets, the key is to buy  as close lo Ihe natural state as  possible, and grown as close to  home as possible.  We have a theory thai Ihe  prices of 'organic' foods could  decrease as Ihe demand arises.  The interest is already growing,  with many of us being willing to  pay extra for taste and value.  Closer lo home we have  more information about agricultural practices and greater insurance that our food is fresh,  wholesome and supports our  local self-reliance.  We can improve the control  we have over how our food is  produced, sustaining our environment for future food production never mind economic and  social stability. So buy BC.

By Ihe end of a work day,  about 950 miles (roughly Ihe  highway distance between Vancouver and Prince Rupert) of  newsprint is produced, sized,  rolled and packaged at Ihe Porl  Mellon complex, jointly owned  by Canadian Forest Products  and New Oji Paper Company  Ltd. of Japan.  The mill produces about 500  tonnes of newsprint a day, with  30-tonne rolls being produced  every hour.  Each 30-tonne roll, if  unrolled, would be about 60  miles long, said HSPP project  manager Ian Roan.  And this isn't your ordinary  newsprint.

Sized paper is paper treated  with corn starch ��� a major selling point with Ihe Japanese  newspaper industry.  "The Japanese consume large  quantities of newsprint and they  run very high volumes in newspaper   presses,"  Roan said, leading         to why starch-  treated paper is  such a big (and  expensive) part of  the Japanese newspaper industry.  "Because     of  environmental  pressures in Japan      _____  the last few years,  they have reduced  the weight of the sheel (a lighter  fibre content) and they're also  using a higher recycling fibre,"  Roan said.  Wilh quality "a major issue  for Ihe Japanese," the thinner  paper needs to be treated ��� to  be made less absorbanl ���  which is why HSPP has spent  $35-million in the past two  years to install a gate size roll  press ��� one of just Iwo in North  America.  After several test runs, beginning April 8, the mill cranked  out two lest shipments April 20-  21.  The paper will be shipped to  Japan later in the month to be  tested by newsprint companies.  The specialized paper helps  the Japanese printers run more  efficient operations, Roan said.  Times are  pretty lean'  -Gary Thomson  "By coating the paper with a  starch solution, Ihe surface  strength is improved and there's  less picking of Ihe fibres," he  said, explaining picking is when  ink pulls fibres out of the paper  and after "so many thousands of  copies, they have to shut down  lo clean the rolls (of the presses).  "The   coated          paper allows for  less   shut-down  time."  The process of  coating the paper  meant the addition of the gate-  roll size press to  the existing news-          print production  area of the mill.  The existing  newsprint area took $300 million of the $1.2-billion re-fit the  mill went through in the early  '90s.  The re-fit allowed HSPP to  produce "the highest quality of  newsprint in North America.  That's pretty significant because  Canada is one of the largest producers of newsprint in the  world," Roan said.  Starting at one end of Ihe  huge newsprint production  building, paper is developed,  beginning as 99 per cent water  and one per cent pulp.  The water is squeezed out by  huge rollers and 30-foot-wide  sheets of paper are formed and  whipped into a drying process,  which, through extreme steam  heat, eventually becomes 92 per  Summer Wear  SEE WHAT WE HAVE  Hj09 Thrifty's  HELP THE  Donation*    SM-24M or Box 598  cent fibre and eight per cenl  water.  This formulation rolls into  the gale-roll size press and i.s  treated on both sides wilh a film  of starch mixed wilh water.  While it's only one of Iwo  mills (the other is in Longview,  Wash.) to produce sized  newsprint paper for Japan, there  are other mills in North America  that produce sized products,  such as copy and writing paper.  Sized paper is simply paper  produced with a starch film.  The reason HSPP concentrates this specialized product  more on Japan lhan elsewhere is  because North American and  European newspapers have yet  to begin using sized newsprint,  Roan said, adding he doubts  Ihey will gel into the market in  the future.  With its continued grip on the  Japanese market ��� largely  through ils association with Oji,  the largest paper distributor in  Ihe Asian nation ��� HSPP is  using the new part of the mill to  continue producing paper, even  though the indusiry is in site); a  P��or way. ... ,,������  "Times are pretty lean,"  admitted HSPP corporate controller Gary Thomson.  However, "we've put a lot of  money in to buy state of the art  equipment," he said.  The idea of installing the new  press began in late 1992 and  work on installing it began in  September 1993.  After 95,000 man-hours of  labour was applied to the project  ��� with "a very good safety  record" ��� the press was  installed, Roan said. The installation met the three major criteria for success of a projeci of  that size.  It came in on budget, on  schedule (a week ahead) and the  quality of the finished product is  meeting HSPP approval, Roan  said.  "From this company's poinl  of view, it's been a very successful project."

Dan Legg  Administrator Coast News, April 25, 1994  news  High arsenic levels  taint area wells  by Darah Hansen  Arsenic was the topic of hot  debate lasl week as about 40  local residents turned out lo air  concerns regarding the discovery  of the poisonous metal in Coast  well waler.  The meeting, held last  Wednesday (April 20) at Pender  Harbour Secondary, was organized by the Coast Garibaldi  Health Unit in an effort to answer  communily concerns arising from  the discovery of high levels of  arsenic in over 20 wells on the  Sunshine Coast.  Questions from the floor kept  heallh officials, including Drs.  Paul Martiquet and Bob Weston,  on their toes for over two hours.  While one woman asked if the  arsenic was possibly the result of  pesticide spraying and pulp mill  emissions, another wanted lo  know if her children could be  harmed by swimming in the Pender Harbour pool, which is  lopped up with arsenic-tainted  well water.  Dr. Martiquet, the medical  heallh officer in charge of ensuring safe water quality in Pender  Harbour, advised all residents  with higher than acceptable  arsenic levels lo immediately  stop all consumption of their  water.  Skin cancer is Ihe only long-  term effect prolonged exposure to  the arsenic might have, Martiquet  said.  "I can't say you won't develop skin cancer but I can say it's  highly unlikely."  Residents with arsenic levels  higher than acceptable to the  Canadian Drinking Water Guidelines (0.025 mg/litre) were given  a list of methods lo help eradicate  Ihe problem from their wells.  The list is available from the  Coast Garibaldi Heallh Office in  Gibsons and Sechell.  Weston said the health unit  will be asking the regional district to expand its water service at  least as far as the Pender Harbour  high school where arsenic levels  were determined to be about four  limes the acceptable level.  Arsenic was first discovered  in Powell River earlier ihis year  when a family of four fell sick for  an extended period of time. The  cause of the family's illness was  traced to its drinking water. Tests  conducted on the well by a private lab in Burnaby determined  arsenic levels to be 13 limes the  Double  tax-grab  ruled out  The District of Sechelt has  ruled out collecting taxes twice a  year, choosing instead to continue wilh the current system of a  single annual tax grab.  "I thought it would be a good  route to go when I first arrived  here three years ago," said  finance director Art Lew.  The suggestion of implementing a twice-annual system of collecting taxes was introduced at  last Wednesday's (April 13)  municipal finance committee  meeling.  Lew said the rules and regulations of the Municipal Act make  it unrealistic for a community  Ihe size of Sechell to adopt a  twice-annual tax collection system, similar to the City of Vancouver's system.  "We'd spend more money  collecting because we'd have to  have Ihe infrastructure lo do lhal,  so you'd be paying more taxes,"  Le .v said.

Of the approximate 75 tests  recently completed on the Sunshine Coast, about one third  showed unacceptable levels of  arsenic contamination. And wilh  the exception of two wells in  Roberls Creek, which registered  slightly over the water quality  standards, the majority of the  problem wells were found in Ihe  Secret Cove/Pender Harbour  area, northwest of Sechelt.  Similar cases of arsenic contamination have been reported in  several coastal areas including  Powell River and Bowen Island.  Arsenic is a metal naturally  occurring in Ihe coastal volcanic  rock and has been found mainly  in deep wells drilled into  bedrock.

Yellow Pages  community  'Whole child' considered at Roberts Creek  What would you like your  child lo look like at ihe end of  Grade 12?  This was a question posed to  Roberts Creek elementary school  parents in November, as part of a  Community Interaction program,  initialed by Ihe provincial Ministry of Education.  Now, Ihe question pertains to  more of an esoteric nature than a  physical one, said school-parent  representative Cynthia Brewis.  In response to the question,  parents and teachers came up  with six themes identified as  paramount in a child's development: continuous learning, social  responsibility, literacy, self-motivation, self-esteem and life skills.  And now, wilh Ihose themes  identified, Ihe school is planning  lo host a Community Interaction  Conference April 28-29, lo discuss Ihem.  "The communily is invited to  attend and whether they have  children in Ihe school or not is  secondary," Brewis said. "It's  iheir opportunity lo get something oul of the school."  On Thursday, April 28, from  7 pm to 8:30 pm, a "keynote"  speaker will start off the conference.  Pat Holburn, a teacher and in-  service education coordinator for  the Faculty of Education al  Simon Fraser University, will  make an address on the concept  of The Whole Child and the  Teacher Bob Benyon, parent Ruth Emerson and Midan Construction foreman John Stojkovich cut  the celebration cake for Roberts Creek Elementary School building committee members Thursday  during a celebration of the school's expansion completion. Joel Johnstone pholo  Whole Curriculum.  Friday is scheduled to be an  all-day session of concurrent  workshops.  Included in the workshops are  sessions on more effective communication, with former Sunshine Coast School Board chair  Maureen Clayton; the value of  self-esteem,   with   Michael  Kamann, a curriculum coordinator with Ihe Coquitlam School  District; computer literacy, with  Sechell-based computer guru,  Andrew Peacock; and provoking  cooperative behavior, with Sandy  Wrightman, a Coast-based family counsellor.  Roberts Creek Elementary  will provide day care, and an  optional luncheon, at $7, will  also be available.  Brewis said she hopes the  community will respond to the  conference ��� especially fathers.

Magically the old and the  new have been drawn together  on the exterior refinishing while  inside the four classrooms have  been connected to the rest of the  school. Finally there is a brand  new school from one end to the  other. The faithful portable  dwellers have now moved Inside  and the multi-purpose room will  be ready for the community  interaction conference April 28-  29. You are invited to drop by  for a tour.  The final phase will be the  renovation of the playing field.  The front portables will disappear wilhin the nexl few weeks.  The field will then be enlarged to  encompass the temporary parking area. After levelling, it will  be completely re-turfed in lime  for September. There will not be  a playing field for Ihe last two  months of the year but it is certain lhat the youth will make do.  Mountain bike race  Roberts Creek elementary  will host the School District  Mountain Bike Race on Thursday, April 28 at noon. There will  be a special visit by Barcley the  Beaver to promote Bicycle and  Dental Safely. Later that day, the  Pemberton Elementary School  Choir will perform for our studenls.  RCCA  Just a reminder that the annual meeling and election of officers for the Roberts Creek Community Association will take  place Wednesday, April 27 at  7:30 pm at the hall. Your support  is urgently needed.  Maypole Dancing  The 4th annual Roberts Creek  Maypole Dancing and Gumboot  Games will take place al Roberts  Creek Picnic Site Sunday, May 1  from I pm to 3:30 pm. As usual,  there will be maypoles crowned  with native plants and a gumboot  game or two. Bring musical  instruments, food, beach blankets and your sense of humour.  This is a simple event for families and friends and will lake  place rain or shine. community  Coast News, April 25, 1994  Elphi students dance the night away  On Thursday, April 28,  Elphinstone students will be  rockin' the night away from 8  pm to 8 am lo raise funds for  area youth and to collect food  for the food bank.  "There's a non-instructional  day on the Friday, so it won't  interfere with school. The youth  will be raising money for their  school and Gibsons Youth Centre," said Alice Etheridge.  Etheridge is well known  among area youth for her teen-  dance organizing.  "The youth always say the  dance don't last long enough.  Well, this time we've given  them a few extra hours," she  said.  "We have lots of prizes,  including a prize for the best  decorated rocking chair and a  draw for a portable CD player.  And for every $50 on a pledge  sheet the pledged student's  name will be entered into the  draw," said Etheridge.  "The business community  support has been fantastic with  the donation of prizes. Music  will be taped rock from the '50s  to the '90s and supplied by Max  Music."  The dancers will get a five-  minute break every hour and a  half-hour meal break. These will  be the only rest periods allowed.  The participants will be expected to keep moving.  Realizing that 12 hours of  non-stop movement is difficult,  Etheridge and co-organizer  Paulelte Collins came up with  the idea of allowing Ihe kids to  bring a rocking chair.  They can sit and rock or get  up and dance.  Parents will be called to let  them know their child is leaving  before the end of the dance. Parents must also sign a permission  slip to allow their son or daughter to attend.  The doors will open at 7 pm  and at 8 pm the dance starts and  the doors are locked. Anyone  going out stays out. The dance  ends at 8 am, or sooner if all the  dancers have burnt out.  A few more chaperones are  needed. Some of the regular  teen-dance chaperones can't  help this lime because ihey have  to work Ihe nexl day. If you like  rock and roll and can spare a  few hours between 8 pm and 8  am, April 28 and 29, call 886-  0295 or 886-8633.  Pledge forms are available  from Elphinstone Secondary  School office. Admission to this  evenl will consist of a minimum  of $10 in pre-paid pledges and  two non-perishable food items.  Proceeds from the dance will  be split between Elphinstone  and Ihe Gibsons Youth Centre.  All food items will go to Ihe  food bank.  Panel to grapple with effects of violence  A panel discussion on violence and its effects will be the  focus of a two-day Community  Interaction Event to be held at  Cedar Grove School in Gibsons.

Victoria...again  Last month the Royal Museum was just readying for display  a single-engine biplane, a two-  seater that saw long service in  BC between 1930 and 1971.  The plane is a Fleet, model 2  CF-AOD which was made ���  assembled is the more like process ��� in Canada.  This particular model had a  wing span of 28 feet with a single engine of 100 HP which  gave a maximum speed of 100  mph. The owner, Barney Boe of  Vancouver, itad the plane fitted  with floats and an extra fuel tank  to take him to remote gold  claims in the Cariboo.  Ever go to a concert where  the conductor introduces the  audience to the performers? In  this instance there were only  five people in the audience to  hear the 50 or so performers.  It happened in Christ Church  Cathedral, that twelfth-century  style edifice in our provincial  capital. The church administration had neglected to give notice  to the congregation or to the  public of this visit of a school  choir and band from Oregon.  Outstanding choir, too, rendering the most demanding  selections. We had stumbled  upon the performance quite by  chance when we came only to  do the self-conducted lour of the  cathedral. Thi other three members of the audience were there  because one of them was the sister-in-law of the conductor. Students thanked us afterward for  coming to their concert. They  did appreciate the opportunity to  sing and play in lhat building  with its high vaulted ceiling.  Birds  Must report, as the casual  bird watcher, the sight last week  of five flights ��� five vees, that  is ��� of northbound migrant  Canada geese. It was mid-  evening and time, I suppose, for  the geese to settle upon a feeding ground. Their honking  sounded like our provincial legislature in full spate of question  time. Reminds me of the time a  gaggle of geese landed on Ihe  glistening metal roof of the ice  'acna in an East Kootenay town  some years ago. The thump of  feathered bodies on that roof  sounded like potatoes being  dumped on a wooden floor from  a huge sack. The squawks of  protest kept the neighbourhood  awake for the remainder of Ihe  nighl. No doubt a new leader  was chosen for next day's flight.

Joel Johnstone pholo  dockside davls bay  by Jo-Anne Sheanh, 885-3629  The weather continues to  tease us by granting us a few  sunny days and then more rainy  ones, thereby stalling the planting of our gardens. Although  some hardy souls are digging in  the soil, most of us are waiting  for more warmth.  It is only the end of April and  already the highway is choked  with traffic.  What will the summer  months be like? On any nice day  the beach attracts people from  far and wide and still nothing  has been done to halt the daily  erosion.  Every time the tide washes  in, a little more beach washes  out. There are no garbage cans  situated along this stretch of  beach, where on a sunny day  there can be dozens of people  sechelt scenario  picnicking with no place to dispose of their refuse.  Walk along the beach front  and you can pick up cans, bottles, paper bags, cigarette packages, etc. on any  given day now.  What will it be like  at the height of ihe  tourist season?

The highest score for the  afternoon was attained by  Aileen and Ed Pinkerton. It's a  great way to spend the day and a  wonderful opportunity to meet  people in the community.  Spring tea  The St. John's United Church  Women's Spring Tea and doll  display held on April 16 attracted a fair number of people as  well as nearly 300 dolls.  There were dolls representing  many countries of the world as  well as antique dolls, handmade  ones, new ones and old ones.  For many of these ladies, their  collection represents a lifetime  of collecting and preserving  these unique dolls and I'm sure  those who viewed them thank  all the ladies who took the time  to pack Ihem up and transport  them to Ihe church.

It  will be on Thursday, April 28 at  7 pm at Greenecourt Hall.  All Sechelt village residents  are encouraged to attend; Ihe  meetings are always lively with  lots of discussion and opportunities for you to air your opinions.  RCMP Const. Woodworth  will be in attendance to answer  questions and discuss Neighbourhood Watch. The OCP will  also be a focus of conversation  and this vitally concerns village  residents so stroll over to  , Greenecourt on the 28th if you  can.  Garden events  This Saturday, April 30 is a  wonderful day for all gardeners  in the area.  There are two special events  to attend and they occur right  next door to one another.  The Festival of the Written  Arts is presenting its second  annual rhododendron celebration called Rhodeo. ll takes  place at Rockwood Centre from  10 am to 4 pm.  Enjoy the beautiful Rockwood Gardens as you browse  among the displays of rhododendrons, garden furniture,  planters and other yard-related  items that are for sale.  Before or after you visit  Rhodeo, be sure to visit next  door at St. Hilda's Church Hall.  Here Ihe Sechelt Garden Club is  presenting ils annual Plant Sale  from 9:30 am to 12 pm. Members have worked hard to provide a great variety of annuals,  perennials and shrubs for sale  and I suggest you get there near  opening time for the best selection.  You will also have the benefit of expert advice from suc  cessful Sunshine Coast gardeners.  The same weekend, if you  drive up Trail Avenue to the  arena, you can attend Life  Trends '94, presented by the  Sechell and District Chamber of  Commerce and Impact Promotions.  This is a home, garden and  recreation show which runs  from April 29 to May 1. There  will be displays, exhibits, contests and refreshments.  All visitors are welcome at  the Sechelt Garden Club's regular monthly meeting on  Wednesday, May 4 at 7:30 pm.  It is held at St. Hilda's Church  Hall.  After a short business meeting, sit back and enjoy guest  speaker Connie Johnston, who  will be discussing orchid growing.  Spring clean up  Be sure to check the District  of Sechelt Municipal Section in  this paper and mark your calendar for either May 3,4 or 5. On  one of these days you can get  rid of a lot of the debris that  always seems lo accumulate.  Just put the items curb-side the  previous evening.  When you're checking the  dale for your area pickup, take  note of what items are taboo for  Ihe landfill.

If you fish (or know a  fisherman) you may get cod,  salmon, crabs, prawns or oysters. Divers can find sea cucumbers or sea urchins.  You can dig littleneck and  manila clams almost anywhere,  but the government decrees that  no-one may sell local clams this  spring.  The local restaurants at  Egmont, Earls Cove and Ruby  Lake all serve local seafood. If  you prefer to cook your own,  Bathgate Store sells prawns.  Garden Bay Seafood (equipped  with live tanks) also sells  prawns, oysters and crabs; look  for their sign alongside Garden  Bay Lake.

"I honestly think it is one of  the most exciting lineups ever,"  said Keller, following the  announcement of the lineup for  the festival (Aug. 10-14), now  entering into its twelfth year.  Keller said the festival's lineup for this year is jusl as extensive as last year's, which included noted Canadian authors Stuart  McLean, Michael Ondaatje,  Mordecai Richler, and radio personality Vicki Gabereau.  This year's lineup will include  appearances by poet Bill Richardson, children's writer Lois Sim-  mie, actor/playwright John  Lazarus, legendary sports writer  Scott Young and humourist W.P.  Kinsella, author of Shoeless Joe,  which later surfaced as the hit  movie Field of Dreams.  Keller was particularly  pleased with the addition of  French Canadian fiction writer  Roch Carrier, author of The  Hockey Sweater, which the Globe  and Mail called "the best Canadian short story ever written."  Publisher and author Mel Hur-  tig will present the fifth annual  Bruce Hutchison Lecture Aug. 13  at 8:30 p.m. Hurtig published the  Canadian Encyclopedia in 1985  and is the leader of the National  Party of Canada.  Festival organizers have also  come up with The Great Canadian Literary Cookbook, featuring  recipes from 65 of the Festival's  past speakers. Priced at $15  including GST, the cookbook  will be available this week.  "Peter Gzowski is not with us,  but Peter is very much with us in  another sense because he has  done the introduction to our  cookbook," Keller said.  Five thousand of the cookbooks have been printed and  Keller expects they will be  snapped up fast. Revenue from  sales of the book will go toward  the Festival of Written Arts Society. "It sure beats car raffles all to  hell," Keller said, referring to last  year's marginally successful car-  raffle fundraiser.  The concert series has been  expanded to include one exlra  day of performance, bringing the  total number of concerts during  the festival up to 10. The series is  being promoted through ils own  brochure, an obvious sign that the  series has become recognized as  an integral part of the festival.

Musician and audience will  come together once again at  Rockwood's Cake and Coffee  House on Saturday, April 30 at  7:30 pm.  The coffee house has been a  regular attraction at Rockwood  for a fei|r years, this time returning unlier the SoundWorks  name. I  SoundWorks includes the  annual music showcase in  November, coffee houses and  special musical events at Rockwood Centre.  It provides a venue and  forum for the exchange of musical talent found on the Coast.  April's cake and coffee  house will feature Wendy Harford, Michael Lacoste and John  Marion.  Wendy Harford is familiar  on the children's circuit but  holds a healthy repertoire of  folksy songs. She is currently  performing more of her own  material.  Michael Lacoste brings his  musical versatility to the stage  in many forms.  He performs with the funky  Butler in the Heyl, as a duo  with Michael Bloch and from  the sound booth at Inner Ear  Studios.  John Marion's 'coastal country jazz' is a permanent fixture  on the Sunshine Coast with his  latest CD, Pulling For The  Woods, receiving positive  reviews and air play.  He will bring his words of  wisdom and folly to the stage in  his unique blend of guitar and  voice. 9j      I  Doors open at 7 pm. Admission is $5.

Utilities Commission public review  that began last November. Alcan respects this process and is a full  participant in the proceedings. This month, the third phase of technical hearings will examine the fisheries issues associated with this  $1.3-billion hydroelectric development. We recognize that most British  Columbians will not have the opportunity to attend hearings being held  in Prince George and Vancouver. That's why we're initiating a 1-800  Information Line to help you follow the facts about a project that is  important to B.C. and to Alcan.  You should know, for example, that:  fish expert* hare been at work oa tka Nechako Hint fot  IS root* to make aura salmon stock* will be protected  arider tha Kemano Completion Project.

Since 1979, when it announced its intention to pr<h  ceed with KCP- the second and final phase of the original  Kitimat-Kemano project, Alcan has twice redesigned the  project to meet environmental objectives.  The first redesign was voluntary. The second resulted  from an agreement with the governments of Canada and  B.C. that assures the maintenance of Nechako River  salmon stocks. Today's KCP provides a program of protection for Nechako River salmon that is one of the most  sweeping environmental obligations ever imposed on a  public or private company in Canada.  2 KCP involves no new dams or flooding.  KCP is the completion of a hydroelectric development begun 40 years ago. As a result, the dam and  the reservoir are already in place. Water from the existing  Nechako Reservoir will be used to power four new generators at Kemano, in addition to the eight currently  installed. This means that less water will be released into  tjje Nechako River, but the project has been carefully  ��� designed to ensure that-lower water levels will not  interfere with other economic uses of the river.  In fact, Kemano Completion has fewer environmental  effects than any other hydroelectric energy project  available to the province of B.C.  3 KCP is the cheapest power available  to B.C. Hydro.  Because of its unique natural configuration,  Kemano is one of the most efficient producers of  renewable hydroelectricity in the world A 20year  sales agreement between Alcan and B.C. Hydro states  that until aluminum markets warrant expansion of  smelter facilities in B.C., Alcan will sell KCP power to  B.C. Hydro to help meet energy needs in the province.  According to B.C. Hydro, KCP power will save the  province about $450 million over comparable energy  options during the life of die sales agreement with Alcan.  5 KCP is half built  Alcan began construction in 1988, after  receiving all necessary approvals from the  province of B.C. and the government of Canada.  Construction was halted in 1991 as a result of a  legal challenge from aboriginal and environmental  groups. More than 1,000 people lost their jobs  when the project shut down. The Supreme Court  of Canada ultimately dismissed the legal action,  confirming Alcan's right to proceed with KCP  However, the project remains on hold, pending the  outcome of the B.C. Utilities Commission review.  With more than $500 million already invested in  KCP, Alcan is anxious to reassure British  Columbians about the environmental quality of this  project Hundreds of construction workers and  thousands of people working for B.C. suppliers and  contractors are anxious to see work resume.  And, since KCP is half built, the energy from  the project can be brought on stream three years  after construction resumes.  Over die coming weeks, the fisheries  science on which KCP is based will be  presented to British Columbians at the  BCUC public review. Alcan hopes that the  people of B.C. will follow these proceedings and make up their own minds about  KCP, based on the facts.  Alcan is a Canadian company with 44,000 employees around the world,  13,000 of them in Canada. In British Columbia, Alcan employs more than  1,800 people. The word ALCAN and the Alcan symbol are registered trademarks in more than 100 countries and are synonomous with aluminum the  world over. Alcan's largest aluminum smelter is in Kitimat, B.C. This year,  the Kitimat plant celebrates 40 years of progress in British Columbia.

PLAZA  VISIT OUR SHOWROOM ANYTIME    Jim Btln 885-4572  Spring time now swing time in Sechelt  by Don Anderson  The addition of the $3.5 million Sechelt Golf and Country  Club, the area's firsl 18-hole golf  course, signals the transformation  of the Sunshine Coast into a golfing destination.  Al least that is the opinion and  hope of Dave Charlton, director  of golf for the club.  "You can tell by the number  of people who come out here that  it is just going to explode,"  Charlton said during a tour of the  course last Friday.  "Everybody is so crazy up  here for golf."  The course currently consists  of nine holes, with the back nine  slated to open for business July  I. On this particularly sunny day,  the course is brimming with  hackers, duffers and semi-professionals alike.  According to Charlton, this is  whal people can expect throughout the spring and summer as  more people discover the fine art  of skipping out of work early on  a sunny afternoon.  At first glance, it is easy to  appreciate the amount of work  and effort that has gone into the  establishment of a 72-par, 18-  hole public golf course northwest  of downtown Sechelt.  (The only other public golf  course is the nine-hole Pender  Harbour Golf Club. A private  course  is  also      available       in  Roberls Creek.)  The course  was originally the  brain-child of  Bud Koch, mayor  of Sechelt in the  early '80s. Koch       had envisioned  setting aside 75 acres of municipally-owned land west of the  existing ice arena.  The land would easily suit a  nine-hole course, but that  wouldn't be good enough for  Koch. If Sechelt was going to  have its own course, it would  have to feature a full 18 holes, he  professed.  After securing securing another 75 acres of crown land, the  municipality struck a deal with  "We're really relying  on the public to  come out and play'  ���Dave Charlton  architect Russ Olson, an avid  golfer who designed the course.  The first nine holes opened  last September and work began  on the next nine, which continues  today in anticipation of a 'soft'  opening in late June.  Work is also continuing on  the clubhouse  and rental shop  overlooking the  first hole and the  site for a 25,000  square foot  putting green,  which is three       times the size of  the eighth hole  and which will feature 36 flags.  "I haven't seen anything in  BC, let alone Canada, that rivals  this putting green," brags Charlton.  Across the newly paved parking lot is the 19-deck driving  range and teaching academy,  which currently doubles as a golf  pro shop.

Following the meeting there  was a fashion show of great golf  attire from our Pro Shop, so  drop by anytime and our local  fashion consultant Bob will help  you in any way.  The winners of the scramble  were: First team: Judy  Maclsaac, Lou Donald, Lorna  Lycan and Mavis Schindle; Second team: Helen Crabb, Flo  Burroughs, Viv Teaporten and  Ruth Norman; Third team:  Sylvia Thirlwell, Penny  Holmes, Enid Harrison and  Elsie Collins; Fourth team:  Moni Langham, Isabel Gool  drup, Blanche Paton and Carol  Frappier.  Senior Men's Day,  April 12  Forty golfers played Hidden  Teams and the winners were:  First team at 207: Bill Dean, Al  Wendland, Ken Hooper and  Ray Wareham; Second team at  214: Denny Rathbone, Jim Bun-  tan, Bobo Sagansky and Ken  Burroughs; Third team at 216:  Jay Deyman, Peter Wilson,  Ernie Holloway and Harold  Lennox; KP #3, George Langham; KP #6, Bill Dean.  1  Serving Mariners Since 1968  ccane  Marina & Resort Ltd.  uccaneer     B  ��� marine hardware ��� open 7 days a week 8 am-5 pm  ��� marine ways to 36' ��� free u-launch boat ramp  ��� yard trailer haul-out service to 18' ��� hull painting and power washing  WAaRRANTEED mercury dealer  PARTS  SECRET COVE  SERVICE    *  885-7888  Prepare for the  boating season now!

The course itself consists of  12 par-four, four par-three, and  four par-five holes guaranteed to  challenge the seasoned player  while maintaining payability for  the novice swinger.  "We're really relying on the  public to come out and play. If  you make it really tough you are  shooting yourself in the foot,"  Charlton says.  (For the record, Charlton  owns a course-record 68, shot  over two rounds on the front  nine.)  If Friday was any indication,  Charlton and his superiors should  have no worries about recouping  their investment. Golf, it seems,  has finally wedged its way into  the Coast's summer recreational  market.

Gordon Hckitoeh, Secretary  Coast  cops  hoping  to laser  scqfflaw  speeders  by Ian Cobb  Not long from now you'll be  merrily putting along the highway and ��� Wham! You'll be  nailed by a laser beam.  The province is currently  purchasing laser units for measuring the speed of oncominp  vehicles, so speeders had heller  beware.  "It's pretty high-tech. It  works on a very narrow laser  beam and it can concentrate on  a particular target. It can home  in on a target and it's instant  (on registering speeds)," said  Sechelt RCMP detachment  highway patrolman Const.  Kelly Watson.  "It will really help on a place  like Rat Portage Hill (Roberls  Creek area of Ihe Sunshine  Coast Highway) where you can  have three or four vehicles  coming toward you and il's  hard to pick a target (with current radar guns)," Watson said.  A bonus of the laser unit is  that radar detectors won't detect  it, he said, and other anti-radar  approaches ��� such as car hood  bonnets which have been  known to deflect radar beams  momentarily ��� will also be of  no avail against the laser.  Watson said the Squamish  RCMP highway patrol currently has a laser unit in its possession and "hopefully, in the near  future" the Sechelt highway  patrol will get a chance lo use  it.  In related news, a recent  (Mar. 31 -April 6) speeding  crackdown campaign launched  prqytncially by Iffft'RCMP."  didn't get Ihe play lock) police  had hoped it would because of  manpower shortages.

The problem is not the  dogs or the fact Ihey exist; the  problem with potentially vicious  dogs is completely the responsibility of the owner.  Dogs, if they were left to  themselves, would be wild. They  are animals like wolves, deer and  the cougar. Domestication has  brought the animal out of the  wild, and over the past few hundred years, created a relationship  to humans that, for the most part,  was good. Competition and  strongest dog ideals have corrupted breeds into long-nosed, high-  ears, flat-backed variations. As  well, guard and fighting dogs  were bred by letting only the most  aggressive dog breed again.  Human intervention has sentenced dogs like the Rottweiler,  Pit Bull, Doberman Pincher, and  German Shepherd inlo a life of  enclosure due lo their aggressive  nature. Yel, these aggressive dogs  have been integrated inlo happy  relationships with humans without ever having an incident of biting or wandering; again the  inevitable nature of a dog is up to  its upbringing and Ihe owner who  is responsible for them.  We are faced with a problem:  vicious dogs. To incorrectly remedy the problem, blame the dog.  The fact that Ihe dog is vicious is  not due lo ils nalural disposition,  but to a trait imposed by humans  and their negligence toward other  living creatures.  We should take responsibility  for the domestication of these animals. If ihey are mistreated by  lack of attention or a bad diet, or  even worse, abused, Ihey will  want to leave.  Dogs will pack instinctively,  whether it is with a family of  humans or with other dogs. If the  pack they reside in is not what  they want, they will look to find  another pack. When they are  restricted from leaving that  unhappy situation, aggression is a  natural byproduct of frustration  and desperation. All of these  problems could be solved with  Ihe fiwners' education of how to  ��� and control of owners who can  not care for a dog.  Rather than making the dog  the subject of issue, make the dog  owner responsible for his or her  pet. Manitoba has advanced to  removing all dog licenses for pets  and replaced them with licenses  for Ihe owners to own pets.  If you compared dogs to cars,  similar advantages would be  gained. Dog owner education as a  prerequisite before issuing a  licence to own a pet. A demerit  system with fines for offences by  the dog or Ihe owner. A loss of  licence for repeat offenders who  are irresponsible with their animal. Of course, rated system of  - licenses would have lo be instigated. A Welsh Corgi would be at  a lower raling than a Staffordshire  Terrier (Pit Bull). Cost for such a  system could raise much needed  funds for education and licensing.  Potentially, (pulling the) price  (of) owning a "dangerous" dog  out of reach for irresponsible  owners would remedy future  problems of not being able to  afford vet bills, vaccinations, neutering and so on. The Sunshine  Coasl would provide an excellent  lest area for implementing such a  program before a BC-wide system could be adopted.  The need for such a system as  licensing dogs is an unfortunate  reality. People who let their dogs  run loose unneutered or unspayed  are the minority compared to the  responsible pet owner population.  But it is the dog lhat attacks a pig  or a goat who is reported, leaving  all dogs with a bad rap.  Dogs are destroyed daily for  acting on instinctual impulses.  Dogs are also purchased daily  without any control over the purchaser. There are licenses for  guns and cars, both of which in  the hands of a novice can cause  serious harm, even death. We  have brought these animals into  our society as a source of enjoyment, utility and protection. They  are a product of our intervention.  Now is the time lo live up to lhat  responsibility. Don't persecute  the dog for being a dog; it is the  responsibility of the owner to  control their dog. Dogs won't listen to a dog bylaw ��� but owners  of dogs will listen to a dog owner  bylaw.  LIONEL TRUDEL  Gibsons  The last thing I wanted was to  get into a war of words with Roxanne Gregory, a person whom I  respect as a courageous investigative reporter.  I nevertheless feel compelled  to address her April 14 response  to my letter of April 4. That letter  disagreed wilh her claim in the  March 28 Coasl News that the  Vancouver Island CORE report  "proposes that the Vancouver  Island forest land base available  for logging be reduced by 21 per  cent." I said that the reduction is  only 7.5 per cent, with restricted  logging a further eight per cent.  Ms. Gregory states in her  rebuttal, "the recommendations...  include the preservation of 13 per  cent of the Vancouver Island land  base in proposed and existing (my  emphasis) parks."  Correct. The breakdown is  seven per cent additional and six  per cent existing. Division of the  seven-per-cenl reduction of the  total forest land by the 94 per cent  currently available shows a 7.S  per cent reduction in the land base  available for logging  (.7/.94=/75=.7.5 per cent).  If thai 7.5-per-cenl reduction  were all ancient temperate rainforest, I would be reasonably  happy. However, CORE'S  Stephen Owen says that this  amounts to only two per cent. The  rest is mostly alpine and bog forest. This parallels the "Clayoquot  compromise." Most of the forest  slated for preservation there, too,  is alpine and bog forest.  Here are some more fads to  ponder: Peter Moonen, a CANFOR public relations official,  informed me that CANFOR is  returning to older logging techniques on Vancouver Island,  becoming less dependent on the  environmentally damaging grapple yarders.  These older techniques employ  three times as many loggers as  grapple yarders for the same size  cut. Moonen says that logs  retrieved by grapple yarders are  often degraded as they smash  against objects in their path. I  gather from this that some otherwise good logs are slated for the  chipper purely as a result of the  yarding process. Mr. Moonen  ftso confirmed MacBlo's continuing use of grapple yarders in that  "showcase of responsible forestry  practices," Clayoquot Sound,  despite pressure "both from outside and within" that company to  stop. It is the use of such equipment, as well as overlogging on a  massive scale, that has resulted in  the loss of thousands of forestry  jobs in BC, not "tree huggers."  The environmental movement  is trying to ban clearcutting,  which would effectively end the  use of giant grapple yarders and  the like. Indeed, the proposed  forestry techniques of the environmental movement would generate and perpetuate thousands of  forest-industry jobs, as the  provincial government recognizes  in its just-released forest plan.  This is a major step forward.  The plan calls for the encouragement of value-added industries,  and adequate taxation of the forest industry to pay for the proper  reforestation and restoration of  the public land which it has  neglected for so long.  Both policies will generate and  assure the long-term survival of  forest-industry jobs. And both  policies have long been strongly  advocated by the environmental  movement. How ironic that so  many forest indusiry workers  have mistaken environmentalists  for ihe enemy!  And how tragically ironic that  so many workers would swallow  the lie thst their employers,  whose practices have drastically  reduced forest-industry employment in this province, care about  Iheir jobs, as John Burnside so  astutely noted in his excellent  April 4 editorial-page analysis.  The BC government is to be  commended for this bold new initiative. Unfortunately, it still  ignores the call for the preservation of the Clayoquot; still permits the environmental rape of  Ihis slunning area, eroding its  credibility overseas and jeopardizing countless jobs in the process.  Rather than rehash all the reasons why Clayoquot Sound must  be saved, I'll leave Ihe final  words to Peler Moonen: "The  Clayoquot's no different than any  other coastal forest. It just happens to be particularly beautiful." ���  Amen.

Lehmann  Superintendent of Public Works  00PM, THURSDAY AND FRIDAY 8:00AM TO 6:00PM 22 Coast News, April 25, 1994  ephemera  remember when  5 YEARS AGO  Things were a bit chaotic at the junction of Highway IO] and Wharf  Slreel on Friday, the first day Ihe traffic lights were in operation. Some  drivers, who are so used to having to slop at the four-way sign, slopped  on the green light and drove through the red.  Associate Minister of National Defence Mary Collins loday  announced a $150,000 federal contribution to improve the  Gibsons/Sechelt airport. The funds will be used lo clear trees on the  runway approach and repair Ihe pavement.  10 YEARS AGO  Gibsons town council has decided lo apply for low cosl provincial  funds which were approved two years ago for Ihe revitalization of the  harbour area. Apart from ihe Pioneer Park projeci underway, other  items on Ihe shopping list include landscaping and street renewal in  various places in the harbour area.  A new sign al Langdale welcomes visitors to the Sunshine Coast,  indicating Ihis area wishes to be a nuclear-free zone. There was no lack  of willing helpers wilh pick and shovel among Ihe 50 or more people  who gathered to erect ihe sign. There were representative groups from  seniors lo parents with voung children.  15 YEARS AGO  When Alderman Marshall asked why Ihe swimming pool was  closed Easier weekend, Alderman Goddard replied. "We are looking al  a deficit of nearly $60,000 for Ihe year and we feel we cannot afford to  pay the double lime to station statutory holidays."  Due lo Ihe efforts of Mr. Spence and some determined girls, a girls'  rugby learn has been formed. The learn consists of eight grade 8s and  nine senior players. All the girls enjoy the game; however it is a physically demanding Sport, The first game was played last week al Garibaldi and Elphie lost 16-0 after some disorganization in the firsl half. The  next game will be against Port Coquitlam.  25 YEARS AGO  The United Church charge, including Gibsons, Roberts Creek and  Wilson Creek church congregations, have decided to call Reverend  lames Williamson of Port McNeil lo be minister, replacing Reverend  W.M. Camerson who is retiring.  Chris Beacon was re-elecled chairman of Ihe Gibsons Heights  Ratepayers Association.  35 YEARS AGO  Gibsons and area volunteer fire department has acquired property  from Mr. V. Daousl on North Road. This will be the site of Ihe new  area fire hall. Firemen have cut trees and are making plans lo have a  bulldozer level Ihe site.  45 YEARS AGO  Don Scoular found a bottle containing a $5 credit note for repair  work at Haddock's Engineering. The buttle had apparently been bobbing around Pender Harbour for 17 monlhs before coming lo rest in  Whiskey Slough.  ���compiled by Bev Shipley  Parents working to  bolster school library  Psst, wanna own a Harley'.'  The Langdale elementary  school parents are once again  working to upgrade Iheir children's school library by selling  raffle tickets.  However, they're nol your  average raffle tickets, because  the grand prize is a 1994 Harley  Davidson Sportster, with second  prize a Husqvarna Ride-on lawn-  mower and third a Norco  Sasquatch mountain bike worth  $1,200.  The $20 Ride On, Ride On  raffle tickets went on sale lasl  week and will be available until  June 15.  "Ten thousand dollars needs  to be raised for books and materials," said fund-raising committee chair Barry Janyk.  Prior lo 1985, the elementary  school had to divert money from  its budget thai previously went  toward the library, so the library  fell to disrepair.  However, the parents' group  stepped forward and has helped  the facility, used by about 170  students, by raising money lo gel  such things as computer equipment.  But the current initiative "is  the biggest one we've had so  far," Skelcher said.  So if riding is your game,  check oul Trail Bay Mall in  Sechell and Sunnycrest Mall in  Gibsons on Ihe weekends (until  June 15) and look for tables set  up selling the tickets. Or, check  out Trail Bay Sports and Tidal  Wave Diving in Sechelt or  Kelly's Chainsaws and  Bernadette's Gallery in Gibsons.
