The companies are expected to face a  series of charges under the federal Explosives Act for not complying with storage  regulations.  The announcement of the charges  pending came from the Sechelt RCMP  detachment Friday, after a week-long  investigation into stolen blasting caps,  dynamite and commercial fireworks.  Also on Friday, the provincial Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum  Resources confirmed it has cancelled Tri-  Sil Minerals' explosives storage and use  permit for the Sechelt mine site.  All explosives at the site have been  ordered moved to a secure commercial  magazine and cancellation of the permit  will remain in effect until all matters concerning the stolen explosives have been  resolved, said a spokesperson for the ministry.  Police have said the number of explosives seized and power of the devices that  youths in the community apparently had  access to make the case one of the most  serious they've seen.  So far, police have recovered 167  blasting caps, nine sticks of dynamite, 30  to 40 home-made cherry bombs and pipe  bombs and two undetonated commercial  fireworks.

Everything  begins in the east and the spirit of  the eagle is everywhere.  Today begin with the circling  of aims as the Sechelt elders step  off the boat and hug everyone  who has come to greet them on  the dock.  The elders are here in Vancouver Bay to visit the  residents of the isolat- ���������  ed camp and healing  centre ��� eight "troubled" Native youths  and their three counsellors.  The teenagers have  been here two weeks  and have Ihree more  to go. It has been a  lonely and emotional  experience as they  explore who they are.        Their troubles  range from involvement in crime  to drug and alcohol abuse, from  lamily violence to neglect. They  are the generation now bearing  the brunt of their parents' cultural  suffocation.  Once inside the centre, a  sharing circle forms in  the living room. Young  and old lean comfortably against  one another and emotional hands  grasp the ceremonial eagle feather for strength when it comes  turn for each of us to express our  feelings.  "When we hear our children  are up here, we know you are  with our ancestors," said Sechelt  Indian elder Mary Craigan.  It was her grandfather,  Swawkwe'ehm, for whom this  Vancouver Bay camp and Native  youth healing cenlre has been  named. Swawkwe'ehm took  orphaned children into his home  in ihis bay more than 60 years  ago during the time of the missionaries.

Her eyes are not the only ones  in the room fighting back tears.  Two messages come through,  loud and clear. The Sechelt  elders, chief and council are  entirely dedicated to  ~~~"    supporting     these  young people, and  these young people  are realizing how  much they need that  support.  They are the first to  participate in the five-  week intensive program since the Sechelt  Indian Band made the  decision to devote the  ������ Swawkwe'ehm Healing Centre to adolescent treatment.  These kids are doing more  than getting clean and sober.  They are learning respect, humility and responsibility. They are  learning to be proud of themselves as individuals and as First  Nations people.  Their day starts at 7 am and  doesn't let-up until bedtime.  They do chores, they hike, hold  group discussions and team their  traditional ways which includes  learning the Salish language with  elder Stella Johnson.  They are struggling with the  counsellors to understand the  effects of alcohol and drug abuse  in their lives and their future, to  understand the family problems  which have led to their addictions and to understand the signs  and patterns thai can lead to a  relapse.  program is designed to  leach them how to live  their lives in balance using  the four areas of the medicine  A youngster geu caught up in the exdtement at the healing centre  as preparations are made for the sweat lodge.

A medicine man from Burns  lake, Jack Lacerte, has come for  a week to help them "recharge  theii spiritual batteries."

He has shown them things  only a medicine man can and  program organizers hope he will  become a regular part of the program.

"We've been very fortunate there have  been no injuries or deaths."  Sechelt RCMP spent the week checking several explosives sites between  Roberts Creek and Pender Harbour, wilh  the help of two explosives experts.  In cases where storage facilities  weren't up to standards, some companies  were askod to fix Ihe problems while others had their explosives seized and detonated.  turn to government on page 2  Abortion  provider'  speaks  on the  issue  by Jane Seyd  During the interview, she  chooses her words carefully.  She asks that we don't use her  name, that we don't mention  where she lives.  For a doctor who does abortions ��� "abortion provider" is  the description she chooses ���  there are more than enough reasons to be cautious.  Although associated with the  Sunshine Coast, for the past four  years she's worked at a clinic in  the Lower Mainland where she  doea 20 lo 30 abortions a week,  along with other examinations  tad treatments in the area of  women's reproductive health.  It waa at a dink like this that  Dr. Gary Ronulis also worked,  before he wae shot recently at his  Vancouver home while silting  down to breakfast   -  No one knows yet who was  responsible for the gunshot,  which severed an artery in  Romalis' leg.  But the doctor agrees the  shooting hits dose to home.  It's incidents like this which  "have made us all look afresh at  what we do and what risk we  take," she says. "I am aware that  there is danger. At data I have  a feeling of fcsr."  Despite the fears, the doctor  says the shooting hasn't changed  her altitude to what she does. If  anything, ahe (ays, it's only  increased her conviction that  "terrorism will not interfere"  with her providing abortions.  "These legal health care services must be provided for those  women who seek them," she  says. She believes what she does  is in the best interests of both  individual women and of society.  One of the reasons she does it is  she wsnts the abortions done for  women to be safe ones.  "Unwanted pregnancies occur  despite all the knowledge we  have of contraception," she says.  "Women who find themselves  pregnant wilh an unwanted pregnancy should have a choice."  She remembers the first abortion she did: "My main feeling  was concern that I should do a  good job."  The women she sees in her  clinic come from a variety of  backgrounds, and range in age  from 12 to SO. Most are between  20 and 30. She doesn't know  how many are married, how  many are single, becsuse the  clinic doesn't ask its patients  those kind of questions.  She agrees the decisions faced  by many women who come to  her are not easy.  Often outside the clinic where  she works ihere are protesters on  the sidewalk. Sometimes there  are just two or Ihree. Sometimes  there are many more and "there  have been times when there's  been actual violence."  How does she respond to the  comments they make that abortion is murder, lhat she's killing  unborn children?  turn to doctor on page 2 Coast News, November 28, 1994  AGENCY DISCLOSURE  As of November 15, 1994, the rules  of real estate agency have changed in  our area. (Tlie rest of Canada changes January' 1, 1995.) Prior to the  change, the seller signed an agreement with an agency to pay a commission to that agent or any sub-agent that might participate in the sale  of their property. By law the agent  and the sub-agent were being paid  by the seller and owed their loyalty  to the seller.  Now we have change! The basis for  this is a new form of contract wherein the seller agrees that the selling  salesperson whether employed by  the selling agency or with another  finn may represent the buyer and still  participate in the commission, The  prerequisite for this is that prior to  any offer being presented, the Realtor must disclose which party to the  transaction they are representing,  hence, agency disclosure.  There 3 options within this system  and all parties must consent to the  lorm of representation.  1) agency - different Realtors with  different companies  2) dual agency - different Realtors,  or the listing salesperson, both with  the same company  3) no agency  Tlie key, however, is Disclosure;  whereby all parties know in advance  what the relationship with their Realtor will l>e as the different circumstances ari.se.  The hrothure "Working wilh a Real  Estate Agent" is a must for both buyers and sellers under the new system, and is available from any Realtor in BC.

Keith Thirkell photo  Government defends record  on monitoring of explosives  from page 1  "We examined one cap magazine that wasn't  even locked," said Button.  Burton said the police will continue to investigate and also plan to check storage at boat-accessible explosives sites up the inlets.  Following last week's check and seizures, however, police feel local sites are no longer a threat to  public safety.  Just days prior to Friday's announcements, several Sechelt residents criticized the mining department's lack of safety monitoring in a meeting with  Eric Beresford, regional mines manager.  Following the cancellation of Tri-Sil Minerals'  permit Nov. 25, Candace Kenyon, a spokeswoman  for the ministry, defended the government's record  of monitoring. "For the amount of resources our  ministry has, they do the best job they can," she  said. Kenyon said the same mine site previously  had a permit to sell explosives cancelled in 1992,  after problems were discovered by inspectors.  Ron Bauer, president of Tri-Sil Minerals, could  not be reached by press time, and no one else with  the company was prepared to comment.  Meanwhile, Burton said the names of the other  companies involved in the police investigation will  be released next week after owners have been notified and the charges formally recorded.  Investigation into BCs largest  chlorine-dioxide spill continues  by Darah Hansen  The investigation into the  largest toxic spill of its kind in  BC history continues at the  MacMillan Bloedel pulp mill in  Powell River.  And according to Mike  I Oirard, the conservation officer  * in charge of investigating the  j missive spill of chlorine dioxide, whether the company will  be charged in the incident may  not be known until well into the  new year.  "This is a very complex, very  involved investigation," Girard  said in an interview last week.  "The last thing I want to do is  just rush this thing  through...We're talking about a  significant company here. If we  decide to prosecute, we have to  make sure everything is together," he said.  Oirard declined to comment  on the current state of investigations, adding any such comments could "jeopardize" the  case.  . ~,.-TlH). incident occurred Oct.  17 after an explosion at the  MacMillan Bloedel mill caused  a massive spill of approximately  150,000 US gallons of chlorine  dioxide ��� a highly toxic chemical compound used in the mill's  bleaching process.  The spill, considered ^'significant" concern by the ministry of environment, forced the  immediate closure of kraft section of the mill for five days and  caused the provincial health  department to plan an emergency evacuation of residents living  around the mill site.  The evacuation plan was  deemed unnecessary after the  toxic chemical Was dumped into  the Strait of Georgia under the  charge of Ministry of Environment officials.  Contacted Friday, Nov. 25,  mill manager Norm Bush said  the clean-up at the pulp mill is  complete and the site is in full  operation.  He estimated the full cost of  the incident at just over $2 million.  Mill smell should dissipate soon  1117 SUNSHINE COAST HWY., (NEAR PRATT RD.) GIBSONS 886-8213 fTBT  That familiar pulp mill smell  that may have seemed two  familiar over the pasl two  months ��� at least to Gibsons  residents ��� should be coming  to an end soon.  Al Strang, environment  superintendent at Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper, said problems  with a boiler which resulted in  the emission of odorous sulphur  gas pollution should be fixed as  early as Sunday, Nov. 27.  Strang said mill work crews  discovered extensive problems  with the boiler in mid-October  while carrying out routine repair  work.  Strang said the boiler is the  second of a two-system process  used at the Howe Sound mill to  reduce sulphur gas emissions.

"I  do not discuss issues with them  at all."  "For me, it is a question of  continuing to do my job."  Because nobody knows yet  who shot Dr. Romalis, she says  she doesn't know if the uti-  abortion movement is to Mame  for the shooting.  At the same time, "many anti-  choice groups have refused to  condemn it," she says, and "we  know there are anti-choice  groups who advocate just such  shootings." One positive move  she points out is the recenl government announcement of  increased security for clinics in  the form an anti-harassment task  force. "We're very much encouraged by this."  In the meantime she says  she'll continue to do her job of  providing abortions for women  who want them. "I have every  intention of continuing."  1  I Coast News, November 28,1994  opinion  Following  the healing  path to  Vancouver Bay  Native elders remember how they were beaten with  sticks or canes every time they tried to speak their own language. They remember the days when their baby brothers  or sisters were stolen, taken away by federal authority and  put in homes far from their birth place ��� a government-  sanctioned undertaking that carved an unforgetable chasm  among families. They remember grandmothers and blackberry jam. The elders remember stories, folklore, spirits.  Now both stories and elders are coming home. In far  away Vancouver Bay, native elders are giving their past to  youths in a program that will drastically alter the futures of  Native teenagers on the Sunshine Coast. The Healing Centre, tucked between snowy mountains and trees and loneliness, is a six week home for teenagers who have broken the  law, usually in a small way. And it is a place where Native  teenagers touch the rich history of their roots, where they  learn to love themselves first, then to love others around  them. It is a better history in progress.  Prison will not do that. Probation is laughable treatment.  The Healing Centre is goodness and hope. The sweat  lodges are spiritual encounters with the self. The stories of  yesterday are discoveries of the past, a lesson that casts a  needed light on a direction for tomorrow. The youths who  enter the Healing Centre will emerge as stronger adults,  people to become elders for their children.  Bypassing the trade  unions on the road  to nowhere  A controversial company is begining work on the Gibsons bypass this week, a company that has been much in  the news as a sore spot among the trade unions.  The company is TNL Construction and it has recently  made the headlines of the major Vancouver papers for  strife with the trade unions, particularly around Port  Alberni on Vancouver Island. .,..���... ^  We can only hope that the violence and tension of the J  Port Alberni situation will not in any, way, shape or form  be renacted on the Sunshine Coast.  For that matter, much of the problems on the Island  seem to be in reaction to circumstance rather than a  response to the quality of TNL's work ��� The problems  are based on the fact that the company is not unionized to  the same extent as the large trade unions. If that's the  case, if the problems on the island are simply a result of a  non-unionised company or "rat union" company out bidding the big unions, then so be it. On the Coast, TNL bid  on the bypass contract and won, and that is the long and  short of it.  TNL has also done much of the province's larger road  projects in the last couple of years, as well as having constructed the first phase of the bypass. If there was a problem with the quality of their work, then one would hope  the government would not continue to use them.  NEWS ITEM: TRI-SIL TO BE  CHARGED IN CASE OF  MISSING EXPLOSIVES  What's the true  story?  Commitment, yes, a distinct  need for the product, yes. Hell,  just based on historic record the  need for the Coast News should  be a given.  Bottom line: a distinct corporate reality, no doubt. Open up  the books, has the Coast News  been losing money or has the red  ink been put in the well since the  editor and a writer dared the  business community to sell  something other than really  imaginative T-shirts and tea  cups emblazoned with the words  Oibsons on them.  Has the crimson lacquer only  begun to flow since Lech Walesa. I mean Joel Johnstone beaded  the call from his comrades to  Hey listen, when a military  coup happens in some small  southern country say Doleville or  Guatemala, the first thing the  bastards do is shut down the  radio and newspaper because  ignorance is essential in controlling a docile populace.  Well, think about it.  MARK KENNY  Gibsons  A curious situation  It is a shame that Westmount  Press did not find il economically viable to remain in this community.  But it is curious that Coast  News was not put up for sale,  instead, completely closed down.  Have the employees been given  the chance to buy the name of  the paper, and any good-will that  may still exist?  Several questions beg to be  asked at this point:  ��� Who owns the name Coast  Newsl  ��� If Westmount Press had not  had to pay for wrongly-dismissed employees, would it have  achieved that sacred bottom line?  ��� Could an out-of-province  media cartel ever really understand the realities and dreams of  a small coastal community struggling with rapid growth and  increasing population?  ��� How could a Sechelt news-  . paper have the prescience to  establish a'Gibsons branch the  1 same week that 65 people had  their place of employment pulled  out from under their feet?  ��� Is the Coast Lightning really  out of the blue?  ��� How long does il take to  truly establish a community  newspaper? Twenty years? Fifty  years?  ��� Quis bene factum?  PAUL MCDONALD  Roberts Creek  Thank you for the  support  This year I came down with  life threatening cancer. I was  diagnosed with terminal squy-  mous-cell cancer of the neck and  head area. As a long term Coast  and northern interior hippy-type  person, I bravely struck out to  cure the cancer. I had just quali-  .g^.��.��n��9t|J.lieal*��aij(jiune  and was beginning a new fjreer.  I suffered through the' radiation and that is when I asked the  community of the Coast to help  me with the expenses not covered by our current medical: the  ozone treatments, immune boosters and an IV treatment. Dr. Jim  Chan has me on. I was doing  quite well until just recently  when I have come into the hospital for the first time.  At home I sincerely tried to  answer the letters as they came  in. The help was very needed and  the words of encouragement all  meant so much. From the $10  from the single mother to the  post dated cheques of a gentleman who may wish to be confidential I have appreciated it all  so much.  My biggest regret of course  was too much time in the city but  we can't be spoiled all of the  time. One thing we have on the  Coast now is a colon therapy  clinic now ran by Carolyo Lincoln. -   ���'������ ti -  This is of tremendous help to  a cancer patient because pain  killers cause severe constipation  and colon therapy of course takes  care of that in a very comfortable  way and can cost a little over  $100 a week.  Again thank you each and  every one who gave help to me.  I'm an orphan and a parent so  it's been a bit of a hard walk to  walk but I do believe we choose  the path. Quit smoking. Don't  keep resentments, griefs, deep  emotional pains.  Merry Christmas coming up.  To any friend I've neglected I  apologize, see you somewhere in  the future.  MARGARET MCKENNA  Gibeons  A techno-phobe speaks out in defence of pen and paper  Call this column a defence of pen and paper.  And maybe the old typewriter also.  I know these days it's out of fashion, but never  mind.  A few months ago, while moving some belongings, I came across a slash of old letters: sheets of  thin paper with blue and black ink scribbled across  them, folded in quarters and layered in old shoebox-  es. Altogether they dated back about 20 years. I  pulled some out the box and re-read them.  There were the long elegant loops of my father's  writing on blue air mail sheets. The careful printing  of a closest friend on a small piece of homemade  1 - paper. Scribbled notes inside a card. Cramped letters  pushed together on a sheet of brown onionskin.  The subjects were many: a car trip ihrough Italy,  an impending birth. The Northern Lights. An apology. Curious talismans of the past and my relationships with it, those letters are important enough for  me. to drag around in boxes year after year, re-reading Ihem occasionally.  II occurs to me, though, that they're also on their  way to being historical relics.  After all, nobody hand-writes or even types out  anything much anymore.  These days, unless it's being viewed on a video  screen or has been spat out of a printer it seems to  lack a certain interest, and even legitimacy.  Tint's too bad.  coast watch  While I can't claim to argue with Ihe obvious  convenience of keyboard, monitor and silicon chips,  I also can't help feeling there's something a little  soulless about our increasingly computer-generated  world.  Call me a Luddite, or a dinosaur caught blinking  at the oncoming headlights on the information highway, but even as a Generation Xer I have yel lo be  folly won over to the techno-thrills available on-line.  Yes, it's true electronic mail is cheaper lhan a  phone call and less time-consuming lhan a letter.  But it's also true lhat it lacks a certain grace.  Maybe il's the on-line company I keep, bul it  seems to me the general rule on the Internet is thai  people don't bother with formalities like "Dear", or  transitions between subjects.  There's also Ihis annoying expectation of immediate response, which didn't exist so much in Ihe  days of pen and paper. After all, there was Canada  jane seyd  Post to consider, plus a reasonable period of reflection and thinking about what you might say in  return.  Recently, some Nobel laureates were being interviewed on the radio who had ail done their award-  winning work before the days of the Internet and e-  mail. They were asked how they'd ever got by, if it  wouldn't be much easier these days. One man  responded lhat sometimes it's nol a such bad idea to  have a little time to yourself to Ihink things through  and lo "slew in your own juices."  Of course, being Ihe techno-phobe that I am at  heart, Ihere are other things that bug me aboul computer-assisted "material."  For one thing, I've noticed it tends to be long-  winded. It's easy lo write a lol on a computer, so  many people do.  There's also a strange false notion of perfection  which all that laser-printed, font-specified stuff gives  rise to. Pages coming out of a computer tend to look  nice, flawless in fact A lot of dumb ideas can look  pretty good with the aid of WordPerfect and a good  ink-jet It gives them a certain authority.  There are still occasional reminders, however, of  the way things used to be. Recently I came across a  letter lo Sechelt Council from a local lawn bowling  club. The letter had been typed. It began "Dear  Sin:" and progressed from ihere with an air of slight  formality. There were places where the ribbon had  bunched up, where letters had been X'd oul or typed  over for correction. It looked, in short, like it had  been written and produced by a human.  I know, of course, lhat I'm going against the tide  with these kinds of observations.  Recently, for instance, I got a press release from  the government, letting me know lhat legislation,  votes and proceedings from Victoria, including  Hansard, "will be freely available on the Internet."  Now call me a member of the mind-controlling  media, but I can't think of many things I'd less like  to read on a regular basis.  I know there will be Ihose who'll disagree. To  whom I'll I say "Fill your boots." (and let me know  if there's anything really interesting...)  Meanwhile, I'm going to get some plain writing  paper and a pen which hasn't run out of ink, because  the mailing deadlines for Christmas are approaching...

Coast News, November 28, 1994  fl0WS  TNL to begin bypass work this week  by Darah Hansen  After Thursday's violence on the picket  lines in Port Alberni, TNL employees working on the Gibsons bypass say they'll be  keeping their heads low for awhile.  "We don't go looking for problems," said  Gary Procknow, manager of TNL Paving  Ltd, a branch of TNL Construction Ltd.  "We bid jobs competitively...[and] we  tackle the big jobs with a bunch of people  who want to get things done."  Procknow was in town last week to begin  work on phase II of the Gibsons bypass.  Phase II will effectively tie the already  existing portion of what is locally referred to  as the 'road to nowhere' from the Langdale  ferry terminal to Stewart Road, off North  Road in Gibsons. The contract stops short of  extending the bypass out to the highway  beyond Gibsons. It also includes plans to  expand the ferry terminal holding compound  'If we have a reputation, it's  not because we're bad, it's  because we get things done'  -Gary Procknow  to accommodate all ferry-bound traffic.  Procknow said TNL won Ihe most recent  contract with a bid of $4.6 million which,  along with Ministry of Transportation and  Highways mapping and survey work, brings  the total of the current project to $6.7 million. According to the same ministry, the  total cost ofcompletion of the bypass to  phase II is $17.9 million.  TNL Construction was the company  responsible for the original stretch of the  Gibsons bypass which was eventually abandoned after a funding freeze hit the ministry  in 1992.  In last week's interview, Procknow said  survey work on the completion of the bypass  will begin this week with "major activity"  starting up in January. He said the project  should be completed by the end of May.  Procknow said the company will employ  approximately 35 people on the job, of  which he hopes at least 30 per cent will be  local. "It's in our best interest to hire locally...we don't have to pay live-out  [allowance]," he said.  Meanwhile, answering to recent negative  remarks made by the provincial trades  unions regarding the quality of TNL's work,  Procknow was dismissive.  "Who's building the province?" he asked.  "Not the trades unions." TNL is the largest  road building contractor in the province with  1000 employees, he said.  "If we have a reputation, it's not because  we're bad, it's because we get things done."  Woodcreek sewage problems resurface  by Jane Seyd  In front of Robyn Reid, laid  out on her kitchen table in the  Woodcreek Park subdivision  near Gibsons, are stacks of newspaper clippings, engineering and  consulting reports, and letters to  government ministers.  Behind her, out across the  back yard and beyond the pampas grass, is the situation she's  spent so much energy and frustration on for the past two years:  the overflowing Woodcreek septic field, which al limes in the  last year has sent sewage flowing  across the back of her property.  By now, government officials  from the ministries of environment, health and the local regional district are well acquainted  with Ihe history of problems surrounding the failing Woodcreek  sewage system.  Many times Reid has hoped at  least one government department  would move to fix the problem.  "But so far nothing," she says.  "This is such a health problem. I don't know what they're  waiting for."  Reid says residents who live  on property backing on lo Ihe  offending septic field are "furi-  .,qus, absolutely furious" and. feel  . they 've been abandoned by gov-  "Here we are smelling other  people's dirt ��� excrement," she  says. "Why should we as taxpayers have to put up wilh this?''  Ten months have now passed  since a consultant appointed by  the Ministry of Health came up  wilh several recommendations  on how to solve the issue.  Among them was a statement  that both the developers of the  Robyn Held sorts through her septic files on Woodcreek sewage  woes. Joel Johnstone photo  property ��� Don and Shirley  Mclntyre ��� and the Ministry of  Environment were responsible  for the problem and should pay  to have the system brought up to  standard.  When thai report came out in  January, "we trusted them," says  Reid. "We believed they were  going to have this fixed."  So far, it hasn't happened.  According to regional district  director Jim Gurney, the developer of the subdivision has  agreed to put up $100,000 and  donate three acres of land  towards fixing the problem.  But the provincial Ministry of  Environment says it doesn't have  any money to put into Woodcreek. "We're still looking to Ihe  developer," says Jim McCracken, regional director for the ministry office in Surrey. "We think  it's his responsibility."  A series of environmental  charges laid by the ministry  against the developers are scheduled lo be heard in court in May.  Meanwhile, the regional district has applied for funding of  $150,000 under the Infrastructure  Works program. So far there's  been no word. "Then I read in  the headlines that Sechelt has  received one million (dollars),"  for Iheir sewer expansion, says  Reid.  "This is so unfair. Ours is a  health condition as well, and  maybe a little more serious.''  Dr. Paul Martiquet, chief  medical officer for the local  health department, says the situation has been a continued source  of frustration.  Currently, the sewage system  is being pumped out by the  , developer and nothing has been  | surfacing on the drain field, but  \ "conditions are getting wetter,"  warns Martiquet.  Another meeting between  health, environment and local  government officials on the topic  is to take place loday (Nov. 28).  "What we're trying to do is  move it up the priority list," says  Martiquet.  Meanwhile, Reid isn't convinced more meetings are about  to solve the problem.  SCRD reconsiders $25,000 workshop expense  Members of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  are reconsidering hosting a  strategic planning workshop  after some directors expressed  concern over the cost of the six-  day program.  The workshop, which came  before the SCRD board for  Charges  laid in  Gibsons  sexual  assault  Gibsons police say charges  have been laid against two Gibsons men after a leenaged girl  reported being sexually assaulted last month.  The assault is alleged to  have taken place in a secluded  area near the lop of School  Road in the early afternoon of  Oct. 24.  A knife is also alleged to  have been used in the attack,  but has not been recovered by  police.  Corporal Robin Blair of the  Gibsons RCMP detachment  said as far as police are aware,  there were no witnesses to the  alleged sexual assault. Blair  said the girl knew the men who  allegedly attacked her.  Charged with sexual assault  in the incident are Johnathan  Luck Weatherill, 19 and Robert  James Knowles, 18.  The two are expected to  make their next court appearance in December.  approval Thursday, Nov. 24,  will cost $25,000.  According to Sechelt mayor  Earl Basse, the money will  cover the hours of preparation  work as well as actual sessions  put on by two management consultants hired from the firm  Chowne Beatson Hoogstra.  SCRD director Brett  McGillivray and Gibsons mayor  Eric Small questioned the need  to pay what amounts to $150 per  hour for the consultants preparation time.  "When you hire someone to  do a job, you pay them to do  that job," Small said.  Basse said the strategic planning workshop is "essential" to  the SCRD staff and directors to  establish long-term goals and  objectives as well as formulate a  mission statement.  The matter has been referred  back to the SCRD finance committee for reconsideration.  in Gibsons Landing  GYPSY erected their sign understand the  \QmV****Z&J&& beat-up, we  URBAN QYPSY  HOME ACCESSORIES AND DESIGN  Gibsons Landing ��� 280 Gower Point Rd  886-7455  A tttrtst unttitteit pUtce let slic-ii  <"��/;<, top selling oiTici;  IN   (ill) SONS  SUSSEX  REALTY  ^ ^ IMILTTttLeusTOoT5o��?waIl��so7i!o5��s7wo?CTr��5  Home or  Property  Evaluation  ���    ���    ���    ���  For action not excuses  Call Kenan MacKenzie  885-7810  886-2277  \bu don't get old by accident  Take care.

A burst pipe in the laundry  room had left Ihree inches of  water on the floor. After spending the afternoon wiping up and  wringing out, my spirits dampened as much as my floor, the  plumber arrived.  In short order the pipe was  fixed and our conversation  turned to more important matters  ... like fishing. It seemed my  plumber knew where to catch  "Mr. Big." My eyes brightened,  my spirits lifted, and suddenly I  was all ears. "Yup, all you need  is a red buzzbomb," he said,  "and you'll be canning salmon  before you know it."  Bright and early the next  morning, I began my quest for  the Holy Grail of fishing lures,  the Red Buzzbomb. My first  stop was Lowe's Marina.  Though sympathizing with my  plight at not having caught even  one salmon this year, he could  only say, "Nope, haven't got a  red one. Will a pink do?" Not  being an optimist, I took it for  backup.  My next stop was Marina  Pharmacy. Technically speaking,  readers write  not a tackle shop, but the owner  had lived here some years. Surely he would know where a guy  could find a Red Buzzbomb. The  owner wasn't in, but a helpful  employee said she'd call over to  Madeira Marina for me. "It's no  trouble," she said. "I've got to  let them know their pictures are  ready anyway." The answer  came back. No Red Buzzbomb  there.  Off to A&C Building Supply,  where an employee took pity on  a dejected-looking customer and  suggested I try Headwater Marina.  Headwater Marina didn't  have a tackle shop, but the fellow in the repair shop said,  "Why not try Bill in the office?  He might know where you could  find one." 1 thanked him kindly  and headed for the office, without much hope that a Red  Buzzbomb could be found any  where. Bill chuckled and said,  "You know, I think I've got a  buzzbomb in my tackle box.  Let's take a look." Sure enough,  there was one. It was green.  "Just take this," he offered kindly. I protested that I just couldn't  take his hard earned buzzbomb  without paying for it, so I paid  him the current buzzbomb rate  and thanked him, saying only,  "Too bad it's not red."  "I'll tell you what," he said.  "Why not lake it up to the shop?  Mark's bound to have some red  paint up there, I'll bet he can fix  her right up for ya."  Well, Mark did have some  red paint. Some scarlet red spray  paint. He not only painted my  green buzzbomb red, he sent me  out the door with the can of red  spray paint. "Just in case she  needs a touch up later," he said.  The elusive Red Buzzbomb  was finally mine. Holding it  greedily, I hopped into my car  and hurried toward the  plumber's secret fishing spot. In  my left hand I held the sticky,  wet, toxic smelling, but beautiful, Red Buzzbomb out of the  window to dry in the breeze,  while visions of Baked Salmon  with Mustard Dill Sauce danced  in my head.  When I arrived, the beautiful,  shining, silver salmon were  jumping right out of the water. I  was mesmerized.  I spent the rest of the day  casting my Red Buzzbomb while  the salmon, obviously unimpressed, virtually ignored it.  Never caught a blessed thing,  but while I fished I had a lot of  time to think about all of the  kind, friendly people of a little  place called Madeira Park who  made an extra effort to try to  help a guy who just wanted to  catch a fish. It reminded me of  why I like to live here.  Of course, it also gave me a  lot of time to think about how I  was going to get even with the  plumber...  V.L. SIRIANNI  Madeira Park  letters  Library rebuttal  rebuttal  Ian Morrow's 'rebuttal' as to  the differences between this area  and the Okanagan makes a  cogent and valid point.  I say that humbly, as it is the  same point my letter made. He  details a litany of failed attempts  to have the residents and governments each of the local  municipalities and regional  areas cooperate in setting up  regional programs and facilities  and says that this makes us different. I agree.  So far, no area has been willing to give up the chance of  building its own little sandcastle.  When do we grow up and  leun to share one big sandbox?  Ian Morrow says the "vast  distances" involved on the Sua-'  shine Coast work against  regionalism.  Insofar as library facilities  go, there is no logic to this. We  are a much smaller area geographically than, for instance,  the Okanagan.  Moving books and other  library material from one library  facility to another should be no  big deal.  There is some validity to the  argument that recreational facilities cannot all be centred in one  place due to distances, but the  same does not apply for a series  of regional libraries and reading  rooms with a central location for  storage and distribution.  Lastly, I agree that new facilities must be designed functionally.  They do not need to be monuments, however, especially if  we focus on a number of smaller  local facilities serviced together  ' regionally.  MIKE WELSH  Sechelt  jTomToolery  Reforming Duncan's  comments  Contrary to the impression  given in Jane Seyd's article  "Duncan critical of federal  spending," the Coast News, Nov.  7, the funding received by West-  em Canada Wilderness Committee (WCWC) from the Canadian  International Development  Agency (CIDA), our federal foreign aid agency, is not being  used to fight our battle against  the big BC forest companies. We  raise the money for that campaign work straight from concerned Canadian citizens.  While MP John Duncan complained about misinformation in  his Nov. 3 press release, the facts  he presented in the release were  wrong. Duncan claims that the  WCWC received $300,000 from  the CIDA in 1991. Actually,  WCWC received about $75,000  that year.  Those funds were put into a  separate WCWC bank account  and spent on research into  remaining natural areas in Latin  America, most of which was carried out by our southern partners.  This is foreign aid.  Canadians are world leaders  in environmental research and  education, areas which are  becoming increasingly important  due to the global biodiversity crisis, global warming, the thinning  of the ozone layer and other serious environmental problems fac-  DISTRICT OF SECHELT  NOTICE TO RESIDENT ELECTORS AND  NON-RESIDENT PROPERTY ELECTORS  OF THE DISTRICT OF SECHELT  This is a reminder of the changes in the Municipal Act which apply to the by-election for School  Trustee advertised in a separate notice in this newspaper.

Our work has received recognition for its excellence; in fact,  CIDA initially released information about our project because it  is considered to be a success  story.  Like many Canadians, we are  happy that our federal government has diverted some money  into a program, the Environment  and Development Support Program (EDSP), which provides  small grants to dozens of environmental projects, including  ours aimed at helping resolve  earth's environmental crisis. It  takes vision and guts for the federal government to fund projects  which do run counter to the traditionally-funded overseas development mega projects - projects  which have typically failed to  create truly sustainable jobs and  in fact have sometimes created  environmental problems.  Perhaps Duncan would be so  kind as to inform the public how  much MacMillan Bloedel, where  he worked as a forester for at  least 15 years before his elections as an MP last year, and  other multinational forest companies have received from the federal and provincial governments  to promote clear-cutting in BC to  clients overseas. We have heard  that this sum is in the order of $8  to $10 million annually.  Hopefully the information  Duncan provides on this topic  will be closer to the truth than the  'information' in the Nov. 3 press  release.

"Always go the  way of the sun, starting in the  east, in the beginning," he says.  Everyone files into the small  dome, built by Lacerte and the  teens from willow branches and  tarps. Two boys shovel the hot  lava rocks from beneath the fire  and carry them into the lodge.  Inside, it is darker and hotter  than I have ever known. I wonder if I will lose my sense of  gravity and recognize the security that comes with this kind of  darkness. Something may happen here which is unbenownst  to me.  The rattles start to shake as  the medicine man sings. Voices  join in and I am surrounded by a  powerful wailing. There is commotion in the dome as an eagle  wing wafts hot steam over me  and, I presume, the rest of the  people crouched beside me in  the circle, though I can't see any  of them.  When I come out, I am invigorated and very clear-headed.  . In a voice that seems to  shake with newfound courage,  one boy tells me how important  the sweat lodge has been for  him.  Look who's "40'  Carol - our first born  on November 30th  Love Always,  Granny & Grumpa  (alias Mom & Dad)  Nathan Joe plays cards during his "time" at the Swawkwe'ehm Healing Centre.

"My problems come  out when I'm in there, but I still  feel like maybe sometimes,  when I come outside, all the  problems go back in me....The  circles are the toughest���to  share what's inside���but it's  getting easier. I can feel myself  changing. Others say they've  noticed it and I see others are  changing too. I think I'll be sad  to leave. I'm getting to know all  my cousins here."  The first week they  focussed on building trust  among themselves and  with the counselors, Daryll  Ross, Nancy Waskewitch and  Paul Mckay. It was preparation  for the second week when they  entered the sweat lodge and  sharing circles daily.  "We built this program by  dealing with a lot of the failures  of other adolescent programs.  The spiritual component is really important and I'm positive  it's going to work," says Ross,  the program director and head  counsellor.  At 34, the Alberta native has  lived on the street for 20 years  and has all the scars of the experience to share. He is indebted  to a medicine man for saving his  life and wants to do the same for  these kids.  The elders' involvement is  integral to the program, as is the  involvment of the kids' parents,  he says. Back home in Sechelt,  the families are participating in  community-based counselling  which is a condition of the program. A desire to change is  another condition for participants���no one is forced into the  program.

The same man also admitted  calling in false reports of a car  fire and a bush fire to the  Sechelt fire department from  pay phones in the town.  On Tuesday, Edward Frank  Simpkins was fined $600 and  put on one year probation after  pleading guilty to charges of  placing false messages before  Judge Shirley Giroday in  Sechelt provincial court.  Simpkins was also fined  $100 for failing to appear in  court on the charges on a previous occasion.  During the sentencing hearing Tuesday, court was told  Simpkins had accompanied  police on their shift the night the  false accident wat reported.  Later, however, one of the officers remembered Simpkins had  been out of the office at the time  the call was received.  At first, Simpkins denied  making the calls and offered to  take a lie-detector test. The test  was arranged by police, and  Simpkins failed it. He then confessed to making the call.  break and enter  Two 14-year-old boys  received orders to perform community work service of 30 hours  each and were put on probation  for 10 months after pleading  guilty to breaking and entering a  house in Sechelt Aug. 8.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS  Robert and Nancy Hoy  Ll* Coast News, November 28,1994  community  Madeira Park elementary students reach their own conclusions about the Mighty Morphin Power Hangers. Mike O'Keeffe photo  Verdict is in ��� Power Rangers too violent  byMlkeO'KeelTe  If the people of Madeira Park  had their way, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers show would  be taken off the air, according to  a recent student survey.  Grade 4 and S students at  Madeira Park Elementary School  have concluded an in-depth  study of the controversy surrounding the show as part of a  media-studies unit. Last week  they surveyed 133 residents at  their information booth outside  the local grocery store.  The display featured newspaper and magazine clippings  about the show and some of the  information and opinions the students had compiled. Passersby  were shown a video of the show  and asked to vote on whether or  not it should be taken off the air.  H The Canadian Broadcast  Standards Council recently  labelled the Power Rangers too  violent for children. That  prompted at least one network to  cancel the show and another to  have it altered.  But adults in Medeira Park  voted overwhelm- _____  ingly to pull the  show. Of Ihose surveyed, only 32  favoured keeping  the Power Rangers  on the air.  The results suited grade-S student _____  Steven Baulne, who  called the show "violent and  fake." He said he has heard of  people being seriously injured  while imitating the Power  Rangers' martial arts stunts.  "Some people have had limbs  broken, and another guy was  kicked in the throat and almost  died,'' said Baulne, adding he has  seen ywwer children at his  school tmiWing the show.  'Some people  have bad limbs  broken'  ���Steven Baulne  Cassandra Clair agreed, saying the show is "stupid" and too  violent for TV.  But Liam Gadsby said the  Power Rangers are "cool" and  _______    should stay on the  air, though he  admitted that he  has to go to his  cousin's house to  watch it. He said  his cousin is a  "Power Rangers       addict."  Teacher David  Barnum said that studying the  controversy in the news media  has hightened his students'  awareness of current events.  After teaching them to read the  newspaper, Barnum is now  teaching them how to write  newspaper articles. In past years,  students have produced a  "spoof > newspaper callo* tb��  Daily Fib, 'said Barnum, atMlng   '  Scouts hold Creek general meeting  that his class might produce a  similar publication this year.  Baulne and classmate Thomas  Duncan said that reading the  newspapers and watching news  broadcasts is habit forming. They  said they were disappointed by  the recent strike at the Pacific  Press because they were unable  to get up-to-date news from the  Vancouver Sun and the Province.  Baulne said he was amazed at  the amount of press devoted to  the Power Rangers issue.  "It seemed like every day  there was something new to  write about," he said.  The students also watched  talk shows and listened to open-  line radio shows about the Power  Rangers and Ihe issue of violence  on television and its effect on  behaviour. Barnum noted that  ��ome parents would not let their  l^Udren watch' the Power  'Hanpfs even in the classroom.  \  The annual general meeting  of the Sunshine Coast District  Council of Scouts Canada was  held at Camp Byng on Tuesday,  Nov. 15.  The highlight of the evening  was the presentation by Venturers of the first Gibsons group.  Two of them, Ericha Delaney  and Trevis McGuire reported on  their participation in Adventrek,  a week long canoe expedition  among the islands of Kayuquot  Sound on the west coast of  northern Vancouver Island,  along with their advisor Rod  Moorcrofl and several other  Venturer companies from various parts of the province.  The reports from the groups  were very positive about the  year just concluded and about  the prospects for the upcoming  year.  The regional commissioner,  Brian Clarke, commented on the  wide range of activities which  had been undertaken by  Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers of the district during the  year.  The high level of training  undertaken by the various leaders and committed to by many  of the new leaders, served well  for Ihe quality of programs for  the youth members.  He also noted the enrollment  growth in the district was well  above the regional average,  though he regretted we had not  yet succeeded in restarting the  Halfmoon Bay group.  Other events of note were the  presentation of a Warrant of  Appointment to Scouter Brad  Palm denoting his successful  experience over the past two  years, a Gilwell woggle to Sean  Huggins, a 10 year service  medal to Rod Moorcroft and a  40 year service pin to Vice President Bob Adams (by 60 year  member Tom Collins).  Reports on successful district  events were given by various  leaders, Vic Bonaguro on the  Kub Kar Rally and apple day,  Katharine Trueman on'the dis-;.  trict  beaveree and Myrna  MacLennan on the, district  cuboree.  The following were elected  or re-elected for the coming year '  by acclamation.

"Using foolscap size  paper and a mimeograph  machine," says Frank Wyngaert  in his Wesl Howe Sound Story,  "the Reverend CO. Darby in the  fall of 1930 circulated some  measure of news." The Eagle  died in 1931 when the bishop  removed the young Anglican  minister.  Another newspaper on Ihe  Sechelt Peninsula that lasted a  scant three months in 1939 was  published by Terence and Kathleen O'Neil in Roberts Creek. A  six page weekly.  In 194S Al Alsgaard of Powell River and Ernie Pan-Pearson  of Sechelt founded the Coast  News with an editorial office in  Halftnoon Bay and with printing  done in Powell River.  In 1948 Claude Hoodspith of  West Vancouver began to publish the Peninsula Times from an  office in Gibsons. Then in 1950  Sam Nutter and Bill Sutherland  purchased the Coast News and  "arranged for the absorption of  the Peninsula Times, and  installed a flat-bed press." (Wyngaert)  In 1954 a newspaperman of  many years experience in Regina  purchased the Coast News. This  was Fred Cruice who, with wife  Dorothy and son Ron, and along  with press operators Leo Daoust  and Norm Geoghegen, did all the  operations from editing and  ONLY24 SHOPPING DAYS LEFT BEFORE CHRISTMAS  and we'r^fl puttins it all on   - ilu  ,>\;>itt  Every chair, sofa, mattress, loveseat,  fridge, stove, dishwasher, T.V., VCR, coffee table  iStore-wide!

In 1975 Fred retired turning  over the newspaper part to Ron  and selling the presses and the  job printing part to staff member  Ron Slack.  Before long a consortium of  Coast residents took over under  the name of Glassford Press.  And it is as Glassford Press that  WestMount Press is closing the  business down.  Dorothy Cruice, who will be  90 next March recalls her 20  yeara with the Coast News, retiring a year before Fred, "Despite  the headaches of the business, I  did enjoy my years with the  Coast News. We got some real  office space when we put up the  building where the Coast News is  presently located. That was six  years after our arrival here."  Although Fred's reporting of  council meetings and school  board meetings was always precise and fair, there were other  events that all too often had  slight errors. His "Oops"  announcements to correct some  point in a previous report became  well known and his newspaper  was often referred to humorously  as the "Oops Gazette".  5605 Sunshine Coast Hwy., Sechelt ��� 885-5756  iMfX  only *UO complete ��� Res. to $145  Choose ANY SWANK FRAME  with anti scratch coating on regular plastic lenses  For nWomfeaMtf Polycarbonate lenses add $15  eVfrOSAL OPTICAL  presentation of local handcrafted  Joel Johnstone photo  "There was very little advertising by local businesses in  those days," said Dorothy, "and  often enough Fred and 1 took no  salary but the staff were always  paid on time.

Coast News  At the Welcome Beach pub  night, word was already around  regarding the closure of the  Coast News. Being readers from  the Halfmoon Bay area, they all  wondered what life would be like  without the local column to let  them know what's going on in  the area. Well, I guess life will  go on without it, but this yvriter  , will aljo passJping the column.   ���  ,������'Tmt\rtteVa1   Vn ^f^W*  -tilt  It has been about 10 years since  Mary Shannon convinced me  that I could take over from her  when she decided to go travelling. It's quite a scary thought to  try to fill the shoes of someone  as capable as Mary, but I did my  best and soon became quite  relaxed with the project. That  deadline every week has been  good for me, knowing that  although there really was nothing  happening to write about, one  had to try to talk about something.  It is easy when there are lots  of news items and events taking  place and when people phone  with information. The column  plays a very small role in the  overall picture of the Coast  News, a paper which I for one,  have always been proud to write  for.  hfnJpl  ne'r tbt  side was .(he owner there wej  many ups and downs financially,  but by pulling together the problems were overcome, probably  because both owner and staff  knew the Coast well and knew  'how to deal with local situations.  The same cannot be said for a  'chain' of newspaper owners  who move in knowing nothing  about either the area or the people who live here, and who can  , just decide to literally kill what  has become a 50 year tradition  on the Sunshine Coast.  It is truly a sad event. There  are families whose livelihood  depend on their work at the  , Coast News and who may now  \ have to relocate in order to find  I jobs. One wonders if a few cutbacks may have saved the financial situation, but there was no  opportunity given for this to be  discussed. Just a 'shut-down'  notice.  Yes, the Coast News will certainly be missed by thousands of  loyal readers and correspondents  and one can only hope there may  still be some way to save it.  ���NOTE: All duties and taxes paid at port ot entry, customs cleared.

FOR INFO PHONE 538-3084  Society pushes for respect of heritage  The Cibsons Landing Heritage Society is concerned about the future of the old Oibsons Landing  Elementary School and has asked the local school  board lo "keep the heat on" this winter.  Society members Lola Westell and Philip Gaulin  presented their concerns to school trustees Tuesday  night (Nov. 22).  There is new heritage legislation in the province  this year and we wanted to make sure they were  aware of it. We also wanted to offer assistance and  ask what their goals are for the future," Westell said  before the meeting.  Gaulin said the school is currently "in a stale of  nothingness" and be is concerned it will deteriorate  further and be subject to vandalism and arson.  School board chair Pat Stuart said the district is  looking for ways to save money but trustees would  consider meeting with the society sometime in Ihe  future. Secretary-treasurer Tim Anderson confirmed  the building would remain heated this winter  because the district has materials stored inside.  The school, built in 1910, was designated a heritage building by the Town of Oibsons in 1988 at  the school district's request.  The board ought to respect that designation,  Westell said.  She said she would like to see the school back in  use and advocated using exterior panelling to get the  building up to standard.  "You can do that as long as you don't destroy the  building inside. You want to keep it in tact because  it's a heritage building."  Westell believes the school has cultural value and  its location is "very significant" because two other  historic buildings���St. Bartholomew Church and the  Women's Institute Hall���are across the street.

What is lo become of  Ihe vacant site? There is an SCRD conceptual park  plan proposed and the outline and drawings are  available at the library for your interest, approval or  disapproval.  The plan includes fire, ambulance, maintenance  and security lane as well as public and safety precautions.  This plan provides a broad design that includes  the disabled access to the area and plenty of public  use for all ages in the community. The suggested  plan includes a promenade pier (for sight seeing,  fishing and relaxation), an outdoor shelter, a picnic  area, park benches, possible vegetation plants for  aesthetics, possible children's play area provided in  the overall site development. Once you have seen  the plan, call Steve Alexander at 885-2261 with your  comments and ideas.  Silent miction  The Roberts Creek elementary silent auction was  a great success.

Turkeys with all the trimmings, tasty pot luck items  will grace the supper table. Santa will drop by and  then we will lift our voices in song as we recall all  the old familiar carols. This is a wonderful Creek  tradition and should not be missed. Entrance is by  donation and your pot luck items. For further information or offers of help call Jeanette at 88S-942S.

Jeanette wishes to thank all the volunteers and  members of the Save the Hall gtoup for all their support.  dockside davls bay  by Jo-Anne Sheanh, 885-3629  I suppose one of the most controversial topics of conversation  on the Sunshine Coast is that of  the imminent demise of our  Coast News, scheduled for Jan.  30,1995.  The fact that this newspaper  has served this Coast for almost  50 years, faithfully and honestly,  seems not to matter in the light of  'making money.'  When I was asked over three  years ago to take on the job of  writing the Davis Bay column,  my son, who is an accomplished  (and published) writer, gave me  two words of advice.  He said "Mother, avoid politics and gossip."  I have endeavoured to do  both. But because this decision to  end the publication of Coast  News has struck so close to home  to so many of us, I have to voice  my opinion and that of some others.  This newspaper has always  given the reader a fair representation of both sides of the story, an  opportunity to voice varied opinions, hear and respect the concerns of others.  The community columns provide a unique service to all the  small communities in lhat they  focus on your concerns, your  interests and your upcoming  events. As one of my readers has  so eloquently put it, "the column  is the lifeline of this community.  What's going to happen when we  no longer have a voice?"  Will we have the opportunity  to focus on our local community  affairs as we have for the past  umpteen years or will we get  "lost in the shuffle?" Anytime  there is only 'one game in town',  you have a monopoly, think  about it.  It is with a great deal of regret  that we relinquish our weekly  community columns and we will  all be the poorer for it.  Mark this coming Saturday,  Dec. 3 on your things to do list.  The Ladies Auxiliary to the  Legion, Branch 140 Sechelt is  holding its annual Christmas  meat draw.  There will be over 40 prizes to  be won, so get in early to buy  your tickets. Turkeys, hams, dinners, etc are just a few of the big  prizes to be won. What a great  way to kick off the festive season.  There is now less than one  month to Santa Day.

Where is our power?  Hopefully the creative thinking, the backbone of the Coast  News, can rise above this and  continue some sort of publication  - not much hope for the Egmont,  column, but I will put out a  monthly newsletter for the  Egmont community news and  events if all else fails in the New  Year.

Local poet  Peter Trower penned a poem for  Vern entitled The Picture Man,  In Memory of Vern Elliott.  Retired from their business  enterprise in Sunnycrest Mall  recently, Gus and Verda Schneider look forward to the quiet  relaxed times ahead.  The new owners are Ken and  Jan Willoughby who have resided here for the past four years.  10 YEARS AGO  School District 46 has finally  received ils budget from Ihe  provincial government for the  term January 1 to June 30,1985  and while the situation looks  grim it is nothing compared to  what the board will face the following school year.  When Peter McNea and wife  Debbie arrived home from a  party early last Saturday morning, they were horrified to find  two large dogs attacking their  250 pound pig.  Beavers in the Sechelt Marsh  continue to outwit council's best  laid plans. After village works  superintendent George Fawkes  tore down the beavers' dam six  times over the past few weeks,  Sechelt Council has requested  conservation officer Jamie  Stephen to live trap the animals  and remove them to some other  location.  15 YEARSAGO  Benny LePage lobbied Gibsons Council for a teenage recreation centre supported by a petition signed by 134 teenagers and  220 adults.  The Coast News editorial  urges local people to shop at  home this Christmas.  "It's good for the nerves and  good for the community. It  won't do your wallet any harm  either."  25 YEARS AGO  The school board protests the  government ban placed on a  $2,273,000 referendum proposed  for the December municipal  election.  A mock disaster developed at  Sechelt involving hospital and  firemen and RCMP at the elementary school.  35 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Council ordered the  installation of a fire siren replacing the one now in use on loan  from Granthams Community  Association.  A boxing card with a 10-bout  lineup has been arranged in the  school hall by boxing supporters.  45 YEARS AGO  Roberts Creek residents  protest the rebuilding of the federal wharf, damaged by a severe  storm. They maintain replacing  it is a futile gesture.  Ten acres of land, six cleared,  with an orchard, barn and six  room house is offered for sale at  $3,500 with terms.
