 Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C.  V8V 1X5  Atten: Rod cardin' 94"9  CGAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED     1945  March 7,1994 Volume 48 Issue 10  THFJ2IEEK  ������������������������������������  Man of the  sea  landing at  Gibsons  2  Narcotics  Anonymous helps  addicts stay  drug-free     3  Proposed Coast  Junior hockey  will require   L  more ice     0  Auxiliaries  honoured at  regimental    ft  dinner        V  This pooch  and many other  animals in  need of homes are  waitngattheSPCA  Call 886-CARE  Infrastructure grants to fill municipal cracks  by Dun Anderson  The District of Sechelt and  Town of Gibsons are in line lo  receive an unexpected cash  windfall from the federal government to upgrade their infrastructures.  The federal government has  signed an agreement with Ihe  BC government to provide a  total investment of $675 million  into infrastructure improvements and job creation over two  years.  Whal that means is municipalities will likely be able lo  find funds to finally fix roads,  storm drains and sewer lines  lhal were otherwise not  accounted for in their current  budgets.  "I think probably our highest  priority is sanitary sewers. I  would suggest roads would  come second," said Art Lew,  District of Sechelt administrator. "Obviously that is what our  needs are and what we'll be  looking at first."  Lew said the federal government also will review "new"  projects, those that have nol  already been budgeted for by  municipalities.  Municipal staff and council  are considering Ihe entire "sew-  erization" of Eastern Sechelt  and jointly working with the  Sechell Indian Band to hook up  their developments for sewage  treatment.  Lew said the municipality  will review the question of  moving to tertiary treatment  sooner than planned, and consider whether to irrigate the golf  courses using "highly treated"  rain water.  "We have lots of infilling to  do in Wesl Sechell," he added.  "In terms of achieving a  cleaner Georgia Strait or Por-  Federal and provincial government infrastructure grants could cover projects like this under construction SCRD walerline. The line  will stretch from Seima Park to Woodcreek when completed.  poise Bay, getting the infill for  the sewer collection in those  areas is another concern."  Roads are also of grave concern lo the municipality, with  many areas, including West  Porpoise Bay, targeted for  upgrading from what Lew calls  "back alley drives."  In Gibsons, town administrator Dan Legg said the municipality is identifying projects it  may want to seek government  assistance in completing.  Of top priority is the upgrading of the sewer treatment plant,  which may cost more than $1.5  million to complete to accommodate the level of growth in  ' Gibsons that is anticipated.  Of similar concern is the  upgrading of storm drainage  worth in excess of $2 million.  And when the first stage of  the highway bypass is completed, Legg said it will "declassify" a portion of road along  Marine Drive to Ihe top of  School Hill, What-thai me��As is  the province and municipality  will be required to share the  costs of maintaining or upgrad  ing that portion of road.  Legg said Ihe upgrade, not  including any sources of revenue and cost-sharing programs, may take up to $3.3 million to complete.  "Our next step will be to pri-  orize those projects based on  their benefit to the community  and their likelihood of success  with the provincial and federal  government," Legg said.  "If you look at the amount of  money that is available throughout the province, any single  municipality can't expect to get  Joel Johnstone photo  probably more than one project1  approved. So we don't want to  dilute our effort by applying 'for  too large a number (of projects)." Legg said the municipality will apply for "two or  three" different projects.  Roughly 85 per cent of the  $675 million infrastructure  funding will be allocated  toward local, sewer and road  projects, with the remaining  funds covering other "physical  infrastructure projects which  also serve the provision of public services."  Sechelt development 'boom' predictable: planner  by Dun Anderson  The District of Sechelt's planning department is buried in  development proposals, but that  doesn't surprise planning director  Rob Buchan.  "To the onlooker il may appear  sudden, but it has been growing  for some years," Buchan said.  "Wc have a fine communily  with a healthy lifestyle and that's  always been an attraction. We  have been discovered by the ripple effect of the Lower Mainland,  by Ihe urban refugees."  At ils March 2 meeting, council decided to approve a recommendation from the planning  committee lo consider first reading of nine projects.  Those projecls encompass a  total of roughly 450 units to be  spread out throughout the district,  including portions of central  Sechelt.  Another 312 acre subdivision  is proposed for West Sechelt by  MacMillan Bloedel, but won't be  considered until the revised official communily plan is adopted,  llie same condition will apply to  New Life Christian Fellowship's  proposal to build a Christian  school in Wesl Porpoise Bay.  Buchan is convinced Ihe district's infrastructure will be able  to handle Ihe impacts of growth,  and the community plan will  ensure that developers follow the  interests of Ihe community.  The total units proposed within  the nine projecls will be built over  a period of five to 10 years,  Buchan said, so people should not  be overly threatened by what  appears as a sudden shift in development.  Nobody is going to be  crazy enough to  dump that many units  on the market  ���Hob Itttchan  "Nobody is going to be crazy  enough to dump lhat many units  on the markei," he said. "At the  same time, 1 don't think we can  put up shutters and say Sechell is  not going to accept growth."  The following are among the  larger projects council will be  reviewing for first reading at its  next meeting:  ��� A proposal submitted by  Andar Development Corporation,  currently under acquisition by  Burtnick Developmeni Ltd., calls  for the re-zoning of Block 16 at  Cowrie and Barnacle St. for the  development of 44 lownhouses.  ��� Spani Development Ltd.'s  proposal to re-zone Lot H on  Cowrie Street for the development  of 66 lownhouses.  ��� A 120-lot subdivision from  Paetkau/Pendleton in West Porpoise Bay.  ��� A proposal for a 120-lot subdivision on the Wesl Porpoise  Bay border with Sechelt submit  ted by Stan Anderson's Publico  Holdings Inc.  Before any of these projects  and their respective re-zoning  bylaws are approved, the developers will be required to submit  security deposits equal to the estimated road development cost  charges for the development of  the land considered for re-zoning.  Buchan said more municipalities are taking the position that  developers must pay to do business in their community.  "We don't want to discourage  development but it must be on the  terms of Sechelt," he said.  "I believe development will be  required to pay for the impact it  has on the community, which is  only right."  Community Self Help Society running at surplus  by Ian Cobb  Thanks lo a wealth of donations during 1993, Ihe Gibsons  Community Self Help Sociely is  running a surplus.  Tlie non-profit society, which  operates the Gibsons Food Bank  and Nifly Thrifty thrift store, is  currently helping lo feed aboul  170 people every Iwo weeks in  ihe Gibsons area.  And with a nel surplus of  $6,895.84 in the cash bank, it  appears as though ihe food bank  will continue lo operale comfortably inlo 1994.  The main reason the food  bank is running a surplus is  because of continuing donations, said society treasurer Barbara Ferrelt.  "We've had incredible generosity in terms of cash donations and food," Ferret! said.  In fact, Ihe society recorded  an average monthly income of  $2,655 in 1993 and average  monthly costs of $2,080, a society financial statement shows.  "If this trend continues,  monthly income will quite adequately cover the costs," the  statement says.  Food donations continue to  roll in from local residents and  merchants, Ferrelt said.  The number of people using  Ihe services of the food bank,  located above Checkers Groceries on Gower Point Road, is  aboul 170. Some are regulars  and others use the service only  once. "A lol of people find il  very, very humiliating," Ferrell  said. A young woman called her  lo say she had never used a food  bank before and hopes she never  has to again.  However, the woman was  grateful the service was available and lhat, Ferrelt said, seems  to be the majority of those who  use the service.  While abuse of (he service  does occur, Ihe food bank  doesn't ask questions.  "If someone comes in and  says 'I have three kids and 1  need food,' that's all we need lo  know," Ferrelt said.  A typical break-down of  recipients of food bank distributions, which happen twice a  month, is one family of seven,  one of six, five of five, 10 of  four, 17-20 of three-member  families, 15 of two (mostly single parents) and 20 individuals.  "The numbers are up from  previous years," Ferrelt said.  However, the numbers have  been aboul the same since  Seplember/October 1993.  Local merchants, such as  Checkers, Supervalu, IGA and  Henry's Bakery, lo name a few,  "have been tremendous," Ferrctl  said.  So much so lhat their delivery of food stuffs has allowed  the sociely to alter ils monthly  rationing in the pasl month.  "Last week I did something  different," Ferret! happily  admitted.  She substituted pork for Ihe  usual hamburger allotment.  "If you could have seen some  of the expressions after all these  years of hamburger," she said.  As ihe year progresses, Ferret! said the sociely will continue to add a little more variety to  Ihe grocery bags that are handed  out. A typical two-week supply  of groceries from the food bank  includes macaroni and cheese,  canned tomatoes, beans, tomato  and mushroom soup, hamburger, potatoes, carrots and a couple  of apples and day-old bread  made available "in four- or five-  garbage-bag" loads by Henry's  Bakery.  The next food bank distribution will be from noon to 2:30  p.m., March 16.  Teen killed in highway accident  Elphinstone Secondary  School is holding an assembly  this morning (March 7) to  mourn the death of a Grade 9  student Friday.  Gibsons detachment RCMP  and other emergency personnel  were called to the scene of a  fatal vehicle-pedestrian accident  at 6:40 p.m., March 4, on Highway 101 near the turn-off to  Lower Road.  "From our investigation at  this time it has been learned that  a 1989 Ford Bronco, driven by  Sheri Dileva of Wilson Creek,  was travelling westbound in  ferry traffic when a pedestrian,  attempting to flag down the  local tiansit bus, crossed the  highway and was struck,"  RCMP reported.  Attempts to resuscitate the  victim by the responding ambulance crew and a local doctor  were unsuccessful and Jaime  Maureen Dew, 14, of Gibsons  was pronounced dead at the  scene.  Elphinstone principal Martyn  Wilson said an assembly will be  held first thing Monday morning and a grief centre will be set  up at the school.  "We're really going lo miss  her. She was a delightful young  lady to have around the school,"  he said.  RCMP are continuing their  investigation in conjunction  wilh the coroner's office.  tty. ~ -....-- .^-*.^- t..���^^o. .-   - -��� - Coast News, March 7, 1994  news  fflim  IIIIHHIIIIIH  WE CAN MATCH THEM  Why waste time & money by going into Vancouver?

D Fraser, Transitional Manager, Public Works  Regular Council  Meetings  Regular council meetings are held the 1st  and 3rd Wednesday of every month at  7:30 p.m. in the Council Chamber at the  Municipal Hall, 5545 Inlet Avenue.  Mayor's Hotline  885-5360  designated as low- and medium-  density, multi-family residential  in the Official Communily Plan,  so the project density falls within Ihe OCP allowance.  "The site is well-suited for  multi-family development, particularly with the proximity to  Brothers Park," Stratis said in  her report. "It should prove  attractive to young families and  empty-neslers."  In addition, she pointed out  some other positives of the proposed project, such as its two-  story design, allowing for  "greater open space areas" and  its "spacious size," wilh units  ranging from 1,400 to 1,600  square feet, with three bedrooms  and garages.  However, Stralis also recommended the re-zoning applicant  make some revisions lo the project plans and provide more  detail, such as in Ihe landscaping plans.  Once these revisions arc  made and the plans returned to  the town, the projeci proposal  must then go to a public hearing.  Project architect Mark  Ankenman, on hand during the  March I meeting, told council  that once work begins on the  horseshoe-shaped, grcen-spacc-  alotted project, il will proceed  piecemeal.  "We're proposing a large  project bill we'll do il in phases," he said.  As for the design of Ihe projeci, Ankenman said he spent a  day trying to figure oul Ihe  "indigenous architecture" of  (iibsons, earning a hearty  chuckle from council and Ihe  visitors' gallery.  After discovering Ihere really  isn't an obvious indigenous  style, he said he settled on a  "West Coast nature" and "heritage" design.  Provincial school boards deny  ��"���'!

"The concern I...and most  districts have is getting a ministry (review) team that will follow a ministry agenda. That  would certainly would nol be  very helpful," said Bob Johnstone, superintendent of the  Sunshine Coast school district.  The review teams were  offered to school districts by  Education Minister Art Charbonneau following his  announcement earlier this month  that he would be cutting the  administrative budget province-  wide by 18 per cent.  The purpose of Ihe teams is  to help school districts find  ways of trimming their administrative costs.  But districts aren't confident  the ministry teams will be anything other than government axe  men.  Johnstone said this dislricl  will nol be requesting such a  FRESH,  FRESH,  FRESH!  AUDREYS  COFFEE  SERVICE  team unless everything by the  ministry is "open and above  board."  He wants to know exactly  who is being offered lo his district and what qualifications thai  person or group may have in  dealing with Ihe school system.  Quite frankly, I don't  see the costs of  administration in  this district are  exorbitant  ���Bob [obnslone  Johnstone was critical of the  ministry's target on administrative funding, calling the cutbacks to his department a political gesture on the pari of the  government.  "Quite frankly, I don't see  the costs of administration in  this district are exorbitant compared wilh other districts in ihe  province and around Canada."  Administration on the Sunshine Coasl currently absorbs  four per cent, or $1 million, of  Ihe total district funding.  Norm Thicssen, superintendent of field liaison with the  ecducalion ministry, said the  make-up of Ihe learns will be  chosen by the government.  Thicssen said a team of three  senior administrators, at least  two from within the ministry,  has been offered lo Ihe Nanaimo  school board.  Thicssen said several provincial school boards had earlier  expressed interest in teams separate from the ministry agenda.  "Districts clearly want a careful examination of their administrative structure...one that is  not government driven," he said.  This preference was considered by Ihe government but  proved an expensive alternative  to teams made up of government  employees.  The final outcome "musl be  reasonable lo the school districts  and do-able by Ihe ministry,"  Thicssen said.  LOGS  WANTED  TERMINAL  Forest Products Ltd.

Call us at 886-2622 or 885-3930* Coast News, March 7, 1994  news  Fellowship guides addicts back to life  by Ian Cobb  "My name is George and I'm  an addict,"  George is about 25. There's  an air of Ihe rock V roll, slreel  underbelly about him. Yet he's  polite and he's happy because  he's celebrating an anniversary  ��� "Ihree months without fixin'  nothin' but supper."  George was telling a group of  23 fellow recovering addicts  from the Sunshine Coast aboul  his pasl week and how he managed lo nol "get all f d up."  That is how members of one  of Ihe four local Narcolics  Anonymous (NA) groups on Ihe  Sunshine Coasl conduct Iheir  weekly meetings.  Hul George is nol the speaker's real name; the  Coast News        promised lo conceal  the identities of the  23 NA members  who allowed Ihis  reporter lo sil in on  Iheir Feb. 23 meeting in Gibsons.  This particular  group of self-professed addicts gathers every week at a  Gibsons meeling  hall lo discuss Iheir  personal bailies and        attempts to stay  drug-free. There is an ebb and  flow to the membership as people come and go as il suits them.  Some go lo every meeling while  others attend on a less regular  basis.  Yet il is Ihe newcomer who is  the most prized member.  And newcomers don't have  lo speak if Ihey don'l want lo. A  group regular may also feel no  pressure to speak; at the start of  the meeting, one participanl  started to speak but petered out  and asked someone else lo start.  A tough-looking, tattooed  man picked up the cue and told  of a past that included prison ���  Ihe result of a date with drugs  thai lasted 30 years. Around Ihe  room heads nodded as he  recounted how he used to spend  his rent money on drugs. The  plan was always to sell enough  of the drugs to make enough  money lo pay the rent, but "thai  never happened." When he had  finished speaking, he was  thanked for sharing his story.  He wasn't scoffed al, scorned  or berated. No one laughed.  Every person in lhat room  understood. Several, including  George, admitted they had done  Ihe same Ihing.  An air nf caring and mutual  understanding hangs over Ihis  group as they're gathered  around in a circle. There is no  condescending professional analyzing Ihem, only peers providing therapeutic ears and suggestions. A vague, board-style format is followed, hammering  home the constant theme of tradition, so dear lo Ihe members  and the foundation of NA.  Members don'l readily discuss ihe exislence of the group  because of whal Ihey call "Irad-  lion 12" ���the lasl of 12 iradi-  lions on which NA is based.  Tradition      12     slates:  We're not a cult  or a religious  organization.  We're a  fellowship of  recovering  addicts  ���Dave  foundation of all our traditions,  ever reminding us to place principles before personalities."  NA is an international entity.  "Il's a world-wide fellowship of  addicts working to help each  other work through Iheir problems," explained Randy, a Sunshine Coasl resident and NA  member.  Narcotics Anonymous members also adhere daily to 12 principles, the first being: "We  admitted thai we are powerless  over our addiction, thai our lives  had become unmanageable."  The 10th principle, one  woman admitted, had helped her  rise from Ihe ashes of drug  addiction to becoming a supervisor al her place of employment.  "Wc continued to    lake personal inventory and when we  were wrong promptly admitted it," states  the 10th principle.  Combining that with  the I llh principle ���  which stresses Ihe  use of prayer and  meditation to  "improve our conscious contact with  God as we understand him, praying  only for knowledge  of His will for us and  the power lo carry lhat out" ���  'Alice' said she regained her  drive for living life.  The twelfth principle states:  "Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we  tried to carry this message to  addicts, and to practice these  principles in all our affairs."  The members of Narcotics  Anonymous remain anonymous  for obvious reasons; they want  to be able to go about Iheir daily  lives without being stigmatized  in public as addicts when Ihey  are attempting to free themselves of their dependency on  drugs.  Within the group, anonymity  makes the members feel free to  air their deepest personal feelings during meetings and to  relate stories about how they  became addicts.  Group members were reluctant to discuss what drugs NA  members might have abused in  the past...marijuana, cocaine,  heroin, speed, what? The attitude seemed to be that "the drug,  including alcohol, doesn't matter," that getting free of the  addiction was what really counted.  Neither was the local chapter  anxious lo discuss its membership number; or ils success rate  al keeping members drug-free.  As one recovering addict stated, "All I know is it works."  The primary purpose of the  fellowship "is to cany the message to the addict who still suffers" lhal ihere are people "jusl  like ihem" out there in their  community, explained Dave, a  Vancouver resident and addict  attending the Gibsons meeting.  "We're not a club and there's  no dues or initiation fees. We're  not a cult or a religious organization. We're a fellowship of  recovering addicts," he said.  "Anonymity is the spiritual NA provides "an atmosphere  Narcotics Anonymous Is on  substance-abuse deal with  Joel Johnstone photo  of love and caring and together-  ship," he said.  "One addict helping another  is without parallel."  This statement was amplified  during the 90-minule meeting  attended by the Coast News.  The News reporter was identified as a newcomer and a  friend of Lee's, another Vancouver resident and public information representative for NA.  He was immediately welcomed and the atmosphere in the  room was pleasant and focused.  "We don't care who you are,"  Randy said.  The only requirement you  need to meet is "a desire to quit  using," he said, adding that  you're free to come and go as  you please.  When the meeting ended, the  group stood in a circle and united in a group hug, followed by a  closing prayer.  With the meeting over, the  members of Narcotics Anonymous merged back into the communily, empowered with Ihe  knowledge that they're not alone  and that they're equal beings in  their communily.

Whal they have done is propose nine projecls for Sechelt  which will bring on roughly 450 housing units over the  next five to 10 years years, which surely underlines how  desirable this area has become ��� and that's without the  312-acre subdivision proposed by MacMillan Bloedel.  On a slightly smaller scale, Gibsons is now looking al a  re-zoning request that would accommodate a 60-unit multiple resilience on Park Road.  Whal these proposals do is provide an illustration of just  how much more populated the Sunshine Coasl is likely to  become.  These 510 units alone ��� again, note lhal the MacMillan  Bloedel project is nol included in Ihis calculation ��� have  the capacity to accommodate anywhere from 1 ,(XK) to just  under 1,300 new people. And if ihe predictions about our  growth are true, there will indeed he a population explosion on the Coast. This will happen over a number of  years, not overnight, bul the indicators are there.  We're going to have a 'boom.' All we're quibbling  about is the size of it.  Anonymous letters  cannot be published  Within the last two months, the Sunshine Coast News  has received a number of interesting notes and letters, covering a varied and diverse range of topics ��� from the  quality of ferry service to the changing quality of life on  the Sunshine Coast. We would have liked to have published several of Ihem because of the points of view they  expressed or Ihe issues Ihey expanded on.  Unfortunately, Ihe writers did not put their names to the  correspondence or include a phone number, so we were  unable to publish any of it. Since the law holds the newspaper legally responsible for all the material it publishes,  including the Letters to the Editor, we must know the name  of the author of the note or letter for publication.  We would also like you to include your phone number  on your Letter to the Editor so that we get in touch with  you to verify or confirm any facts you may have included  in your letter; that is also our responsibility.     ���"  If you wish to have your letter published in a timely  manner, you would also be wise to keep it short and to the  point. The best suggested length is about one to one and  half pages of double-spaced, typed copy, or two to two and  a half pages if it's handwritten.  This is not intended to curb your access to the Letters to  the Editor page(s) but to enhance it. We must have struck a  chord somewhere with you. the readers, because the Coast  News has been flooded with letters for the past several  weeks ��� and we love it. However, keeping your letters  short gives them a better chance of getting in and allows us  to publish a wider range of opinion in each newspaper.  We thank for your support. And keep those cards and  letters coming.  ���Larry Marshall, Managing Editor  IT COULD ONLY HAPPEN  IN ROBERTS CREEK...  From the first, sparky lived life  in the fast lane, chasing cars,  sut after he sucked his first  ego, he was on a fast track  to hell - stealing chickens,  roughing up cats, hanging  out with bad 9005.  and then, plump little  bo&by smith moved in  down the street...  A question of ferries  It is my intention to attend the  meeting wilh Ihe ferry officials  on March 9. As WHSEA's president, Ms. Avis informed me that  I would have to pre-submit in  writing any question I intend lo  ask. I will do so in Ihe form of an  open letter to Admiral M. Martin, general manager R. Morrison  and finance officer G. Brown.  Gentlemen: Early in Ihe '60s  the provincial government  expropriated the Black Ball ferry  fleet, serving al the time certain  areas, including the Sunshine  Coasl. The reason was substandard service. According to the  premier of the day, W.A.C Bennett, transportation was then, as  il is now, ihe key Io prosperity in  this province.  A few years later, the  province was declared to be  debt-free and all tolls from  bridges, tunnels and department  of highway ferries were  remdvetf.'ThiS included the ferries'of Ihe Kootenay Lake and  Arrow Lakes. At lhat time we  had a ferry schedule between  Horseshoe Bay and Langdale,  starting on our end at 5:30 am,  with the last ferry leaving Horseshoe Bay at 12:30 am, ferries  running from each terminal at  hourly intervals. The ferries  across Kootenay Lake had a similar schedule.  Later on, a department of  highway ferry link was established between Comox and Powell River. A purely political decision, benefitting the sitting member of the Comox riding, as well  as the merchants in Powell  River, placed the terminus in  Comox.  In 1985, the Bill Bennett  provincial government "sold"  certain department of highway  ferries, including the Comox-  Powell River run, to the BC  Ferry Corporation to finance the  massive over-runs of the Coqui-  halla Highway for, I believe, 60  million dollars. All these runs are  heavy money-losers.  The federal government transfers to the provincial treasury  each year about 20 million dollars in lieu of its obligation to  maintain a highway link between  the mainland and Vancouver  Island.  Question: Why are we  expected to fully pay for a service that does not even All our  needs, when our taxes provide  the people of the Kootenay  Lakes region with an...absolutely non-essential service at no  cost with a schedule running at  hourly intervals from 6 am to 2  am?  Question:, Why do we have tq  pay what amounts to atoll lo  gain access to our highways,  which we help to pay for with  the gasoline we purchase?  Question: Why is ihe Langdale run not subsidized by Ihe  provincial government to the  amount saved by not having to  provide us with a highway link  from Langdale to Squamish (as  the federal government is  obliged lo do with Trans-Canada  Highway 1)?  Question: Why do you  'group' us with other ferry runs  to justify a fare increase? Group  the Langdale run with the Powell  River-Comox run that is financially compromised by bad political decisions. By how much  would revenues increase there if  the terminus were moved lo  Powell River where it belongs?  Question: If you group us  with some of the other, money-  losing runs, for the purpose of  'cost recovery,' why do you not  do the same with the Gulf Island  ferries and the Tsawassen-  Swartz Bay run? Why not Ihe  same with the up-island money-  losers and the Horseshoe Bay-  Nanaimonin?

VON 1V0  Forestry Musings  a waste of trees  John Burnside's 'Musings'  (ranlings?) against current forest  practices in your Feb. 28 issue  pulled oul pretty well every tired  bit of rhetoric in the book. Phrases like "dramatically mined landscapes," "ruinous ecological  regime," "laying waste to the  great forests" and "piratical  boardrooms of the multi-national  forest giants" spewed out of his  typewriter with the practised  familiarity of a man with Ihe clarity of insight lhal we in Ihe forest  industry can only aspire to.  Having trashed the forest  industry, ils workers and those  trying to defend il on the world  stage, he offered whal is perhaps  his most illuminating comment  of all: "I've known since I was  about six that when someone  started name-calling it was  because they couldn't think of  much else to say." Thqnuin |jie ,  very next sentence, he proceeded.  to describe Ihe forest industry as  Ihe "pirates of the forest"  Sorry John, bul il would  appear lhat it is you who "can't  Ihink of much else to say."

DAVID BEBB, RPF  Sechelt  Long shadow of religious fanaticism begins to loom  We ventured the opinion not long ago that the  brutal tragedy unfolding in what used to be  Yugoslavia might be more usefully understood if we  would obey the age-old injunction about calling a  spade a spade. Not only could what is happening be  more usefully understood, but the seeds of a potentially much more widespread explosion of lethal  hatreds might be thus identified.  Baldly put, we should be reminding ourselves  here is no ethnic clash. The Croats. Serbs and Muslims of Yugoslavia are ethnically indistinguishable.  Whal we are seeing is a religious war involving  Catholics. Greek Orthodox adherents and Muslims.  Nothing else divides the combatants in this bloody  and brutal madness.  There is a complex of reasons why Europe and  the United States have been unable to agree on what  lo do to prevent the overrunning of Bosnia-Herzegovina, as the shrinking Muslim enclave has come  lo be called, by Croatia and Serbia: the reluctance lo  offend Russia. Greek Orthodox supporters of Serbia:  the division of allegiance among Europeans between  Croatia and Serbia which goes h.ick over two world  wars in this century  These political nuances lend to get lost from view  if your point of view is anywhere in the Muslim  world.  It is not, of course, a viewpoint which we in the  West can readily command, even in imagination.  But we ought to make the attempt or the localized  barbarism which has engulfed the former  musings  Yugoslavia could but be the foreshadowing of a  greater conflagration to come.  What is apparent to the international Muslim  point of view is that again and again in the past  decade the Christian West has had no difficulty  reaching a consensus about the need to rain their terrible weapons of destruction on Muslim targets. Iraq  comes most readily to mind, where we went smartly  to war ostensibly to rescue the corrupt obscenity  which is Kuwait, in reality to protect our own oil  supplies. But Libya, too, has known the long-range  might of the American Air Force.  Nor does the subsidized theocracy in the heart of  the Muslim world fail to have its relevance. The  technological military supremacy of Israel is the  result of American financial and military support  and the Muslims have suffered from it.  This readiness to strike at Muslim targets and to  arm Muslim enemies is being compared all round  the Muslim world with the West's inability to prevent the Serbs and the Croats from squeezing  Bosnia-Herzegovina out of existence.  john burnside  We are seeing the results of this dichotomy in the  rise of Islamic fundamentalism everywhere. In  Algiers, where foreigners are being murdered systematically, the Islamic fundamentalists were only  kept from power when the military abrogated an  election that the fundamentalists had clearly won.  Even in Egypt, long a bastion of moderate government in the turbulent Middle East, the activities of  terrorist fundamentalists are on the increase, with  non-Islamic targets ��� specifically Western ��� being  the targets of choice.  With our customary historic blindness, we  choose to be unaware that ihe map of the Middle  East was drawn by Western powers with their own  oil interests in view. Hence, we have the poverty-  struck millions of Cairo and other great centres  whilst the oil riches of the region are enjoyed by  such as the Kuwaiti royal family and the Saudi royal  family, enclaves of corruption and privilege which  the West defends to ensure access to the oil of the  sparsely inhabited regions.  As evidence that the dangers of an Islamic Jihad,  or Holy War, are more than just tlie fevered imaginings of this poor scribe, we offer the words of no  less a person than the prime minister of India, PV  Narasimha Rao, writing recently in the Los Angeles  Times. From Ihe Muslim-Hindu clashes which  caused partition of India at independence lo the  enduring hostility between his country and Muslim  Pakistan today, we must assume religious conflict is  a subject of which India's prime minister has some  knowledge. He says, in part:  "The divisive influence of religious fanaticism  has asserted itself on the international scene...today,  when a scholar proposes lhat the next major conflict  in the world will be on religious lines, people listen  wilh attention. Forty years back, such a thesis would  have been dismissed out of hand."  Nor is our Christian cynicism and insensitivity  our only historic contribution to the gathering dangers.  There is a fanatical fundamentalist movement  seeking power at the heart of the world's last super  power, every iota as frightening as Islamic terrorists  in Algiers.  Would we arm those who hunger for Armageddon wilh weapons of nuclear destruction?  The tolerant and the truly liberal musl begin to  build bridges of understanding across religious  divides or we may live to see the murderous campaigns of the Middle Ages repeated, this time with  all the panoply of modem war replacing scimitars  and lances.  9  COAST^NEWS  Subscription Hates for  the Coast Sews or Ihe Weekender:  Canad**: 1 year ��� |35 ��� $2 4<i CST- $37,45  6 months ��� $20 * $1 40 GST - $21.40  foreign: I vent ��� $61) (No GST)  Reg No 47[)2  The Sunshine Coasl News is published on  the Sunshine Coast, B.C. every Monday by  Glassford Press Ltd.

These bears, with perfectly  designed suitings and actors  within who have mastered perfectly believable bear stances  with a nicely subtle bit of  humour always, are seen doing  Ihe various alpine sports, the  singles luge and the big jump  particularly. I watched for an  eight-hear bobsled bul if il came  off I missed it.  This gimmick, as it might be  considered, was raised in status  by Ihe whole overall production.  There was no voice ever and no  music, except in one case a distant chord of alpine type trumpets. There were sound effects,  played down and quite naturalistic ��� skis on snow and Ihe luge  hurtling down its winding chute,  but otherwise jusl the also  down-played appreciating  grunts of bears.  In short, it had style, a thing  lhat in Ihe over 40 years of TV  in Canada wc had come not to  expect, lo put it mildly. This  thought was underscored during  the coverage of the games by  the fact that one of the other  principle advertisers was  Gillette. Gillette we remember  as one of the principle advertisers for the World Series baseball  games we used to follow on  radio back in the '.10s.  In those days Gillette was  coming out, annually it seemed,  with some sort of a new razor or  super-snorkel little blade and it  was just Ihe same here in '94.  Outside of the fact that you really might have felt that this simple hand scraper might have  been perfected once and for all  sometime over all these 60  years, the style of the commercial hadn't changed a jot as far  as I could sec since the '30s.  I have never worked in the  commercials business bul one  lime, when I had a small thing  called Film Planning with an  office in Film House in Toronto,  I often had lunch in a pub where  a number of people who made  commercials could usually be  found.  My favourite was a burly  Ukrainian called Bryan. He was  a writer and sometime director  and tremendously energetic and  brimming over with bright and  often amusing ideas.  This continuous zip went  beyond the requirements of his  job. He had a cottage on Lake  Erie and a problem with hydro  so he did a fast research into  windmills, set up two and was  selling electricity to his neighbours.  The pub where they all forgathered was a new one started  in a nutshell  stuart nutter  by a large (6 feet, 5 inches)  Englishman who had come out  as a barber. He was, I think, the  first unisex barber in Toronto.  He had cannily built his pub in a  semi-basement pretty well in the  middle of the then developing  new centre of town, Bloor and  Yonge. He was a good host,  looked and talked like Stanley  (Take Me to the Church on  Time) Holloway and the talent  from the agencies made the  place their own.  This did not include Ihe  upper echelons from the agencies, the account executives and  up who ultimately decided what  was going to be shot. None of  their advisers, either, as I  remember ��� the demographers  and psychologists and other professional takers of the public  pulse. It was a place where just  the 'talent' operated unbridled  every day for an hour or two or  possibly three.  The point of all ihis, if any, is  that it was impossible lo spend  any lime in this place without  thinking that the whole Canadian television commercials scene  could be a lot brighter and  amusing and less unremittingly  horrible than it was.  If it now seems that these ter  ribly entrenched and deeply  conservative attitudes are somehow changing, that the style of  commercials is changing, then it  is something lhat is at least  worth noting. Styles ��� real  styles not fashions ��� signal  something going on that is real.  Marshall McLuhan (We  remember him? The Global Village, The Medium is llie Message...) always said that he was  not the espouser of these notions  but jusl a reporter of changing  social trends. As such he reported a lot on changing styles and  even intimations of changing  styles.  Sometimes McLuhan may  have seemed lo reach a bit far  for significances bul it would be  nice to have his comments on  some of the things going on  today.  Like for example, the fact  that, a few monlhs ago, all of  the principal figures Capitol  Hill in Washington almost  overnight started coming out  wilh extraordinarily flowered  ties instead of the red striped  ties Ihey had worn for decades,  almost as a uniform. Some of  the most conservative old senators, and that's real conservative, came on with ties smothered in primroses peeking  Ihrough beds of marigold and so  forth.  How to explain this? Marshall McLuhan, where are you  when we need you at this hour?  But if these instant trends are  part of something that can even  change the style of our TV commercials, then they've got to be  all for the better.

COME AND MEET WITH TOWN  PLANNER SUSAN STRATIS, ALDERMAN  JOHN MCNEVIN, OAP  REPRESENTATIVE GEORGE  WITHNALL, AND YOUR NEIGHBOURS  TO DISCUSS THE TRAIL PLAN FOR  THIS WILDLIFE SANCTUARY/PARK  letters  At loggerheads  over watersheds  I notice you have again published J.R. Thompson's tired  argument about recreation and  watershed 'logging (Close  Watersheds, Feb. 24, I994).  Perhaps Mr. Thompson will  benefit from some historical  information.  For most of this century logging has not been allowed in the  Vancouver watersheds as these  drainages have been protected  under Section 12 of Ihe Land  Act.  In l%7 Ihe Greater Vancouver Water District gained the  right to use logging as a lool of  waler qualily enhancement  through an Amending Indenture  lo the Watershed Reserve designation.  While the results of logging  in these watersheds have been  dubious and controversial, it's  worth noting that the actual logging and road building have  been of an exceptional quality.  Incidentally, roads are not built  across unstable slopes and high  elevation; sites such as we have  here in the Tetrahedron are not  considered for culling.  The Chapman/Gray watersheds, of which the Tetrahedron  is a part, is a very different situation. In I974 an integrated  watershed management study  team assessed the causes of  deteriorating water qualily and  concluded lhat logging and road  building were primarily responsible.  They made specific recom  mendations for restoration and  future logging. Unfortunately  the MOF ignored Ihose recommendations and allowed poor  quality road building and logging to take place in the most  sensitive and unstable areas of  the'wdlefsHW.'"1' '":: !"  Gray Creek water hb'lttrtfett''  meets minimum standards. This  deliberate disregard of the public interest has created a legacy  of collapsing roads, landslides,  degraded water and distrust.  Incredibly, Mr. Thompson  now argues lhat watersheds  should be closed to recreation  while logging continues. It's loo  late, Jim; people have already  seen the damage.  One other detail: Ihe Vancouver watersheds have never been  subjected to "management" by  the Ministry of Forests.

A proposal to establish a  junior hockey team on Ihe Sunshine Coasl is creating a  renewed push lo have a second  sheel of ice added lo Ihe Sechell  Arena.  Preliminary approval has  already been granted to Impact  Promotions, Ihe movers and  shakers behind Ihe proposal,  from Ihe British Columbia  Junior Hockey League (Junior  Al and Ihe Pacific Coasl International Hockey League (Junior  H).  However, before a junior  hockey learn can be brought lo  the Coasl, the idea has to be  supported by Ihe Sunshine Coasl  Minor Hockey Association  (SCMHA).  "I think it's great," said  SCMHA president Walter Tripp  of ihe news the two leagues are  interested in allowing Ihe Sunshine Coast into their camps.  There's a catch, though.

Sechell mayor Earl Basse is  also a supporter of the idea of  junior hockey because il would  be good for the town.  "I'm game for lhat sort of  Ihing," he said. Sport learns "of  any kind, but particularly the  juniors," add an exlra element to  a town, as well as more business.  But Basse echoes Tripp thai a  second sheet of ice is needed  before Ihis kind of projeci can  proceed.  "To bring one (learn) in now,  I don'l know how Ihey would do  it," he said, adding the Sechell  Arena isn't currently "up lo  snuff."  A second sheel of ice would  also be a benefit to the municipality, he said.  "The revenue they generate  can be much greater," he said.  A second sheet of ice would  be more than a revenue generator, Tripp said.  "For any municipal rink, a  single sheet of ice runs al an  approximately 50-per-cenl lax-  payer subsidy. And operating  hours have no bearing on the  mailer. Fixed costs will go up  some, not much, for a second  sheet and labour stays the same  and Ihe lax-payer subsidy drops  lo 22 per cenl because a second  sheet of ice is there for prime  lime."  A second sheel of ice available for Ihe prime time would  help the constantly growing  minor hockey and figure-skating  programs, as well as "save taxpayers money."  The prime-time hours on the  weekends and after 4 p.m. are  currently Ihe hot items, said  Impact Promotions' John Sperring, and a junior hockey learn,  wilh players mostly in high  school and college, could use  non-prime ice times, such as  mid-afternoon and later in Ihe  evening.  "There's a lol of ice that  actually does sit vacant. But yes,  Ihere has to be a second sheet of  ice shortly," Sperring said.  "We're nol looking for a  Cadillac rink, we're looking for  a Chevy or a Volkswagon,"  Tripp said. "We've got to have  expansion. There is no holding  il back."  Aside from the need for a  second sheet of ice, which  according to Tripp could easily  be sel up beside the existing  facility, the junior-team proposal must receive support in a  financial sense, Sperring said.  With an estimated $300,000  needed to initially sel up a team,  Impaci "has to gel more financing in place," he said.  "This isn't a small undertaking," admitted Impaci principal  Gord Clayton. "It's nol going lo  be easy.  "We're patient, We'll go  after il one fool after another  and nol gel hung up on time."  A realistic guess as lo when a  junior learn would begin play on  Ihe Coasl would be two or three  years, Clayton said.  As for whether il's Junior A  or B, he said, "I would say our  ambition is lo go lo a Junior A  club, bul a Junior B club is a  practical first step."  Sperring said the BCJHL-  leading Powell River Paper  Kings have expressed interest in  linking up wilh a Sechcll-bascd  franchise.  Tyabji  denied  custody  of her  children  Okanagan East MLA Judi  Tyabji has launched a legal  slay of proceedings in the battle to win back custody of her  three young children.  Tyabji lost custody of ihe  children to her ex-husband  Kim Sandana Thursday  (March 3) in a decision from  BC's Supreme Court.  The children ��� Kasimir, 6;  Kirir, 4; and Tanila, 2 ��� have  been living with Tyabji and  fiance1 Powell River-Sunshine  Coast MLA Gordon Wilson in  their Victoria home.  Tyabji said Friday (March  4) she will be appealing the  court's ruling if she can afford  to take the issue back to court.  She said money for an appeal  will be a "big problem."  Justice John Spencer ruled  Thursday against Tyabji's bid  for custody, questioning the  credibility of her negative testimony against her former  husband. The judge also ruled  Tyabji's busy career as a  politician made her less suitable to raise the children lhan  Sandana, a Safeway clerk.  The court awarded Tyabji  overnight access to her children one weekend a month in  her home and ordered her to  pay $750 per monlh in child  suppon.  Egmont Lafarge plant  shut down temporarily  by Darah Hansen  Mechanical failure at the  Egmont subsidiary of Lafarge  Canada Inc. has caused a temporary shut-down at the company.  Egmont site superintendent  Jack Sutherland refused to comment on the shutdown, saying  only thai it was a mechanical  failure of the "jaw crusher" that  caused the company to suspend  its operations.  Lafarge vice-president and  general manager of the Pacific  western region, Wallace McNeil,  confirmed a mechanical failure  had occurred al the gravel plant.  McNeil said the company was  stjll operating bul "nol at full  capacity.. The company is operating as a crushing plant only."  lie added Ihe Egmont plant  had been "down for quite  awhile."  McNeil did nol know how  many of the plant's IS employees were affected by the partial  closure.  This is the second lime in one  year Ihe company has experienced problems with its mechanical equipment.  McNeil said Lafarge is in the  process of -nlarging and upgrading all er   pment al Ihe site. The  cosl of Ihe upgrade is estimated  at $3 lo $6 million.  Lasl year the company spent  $250,000 installing a siltation  transfer system at the Egmont  site.  The new system recycles  waste water with little to no discharge inlo the environment.  I -afargc spent the money after  being charged under the provincial Waslc Management Act for  dumping sill-laden waste water  into the Skookumchuck Narrows, a prime fisheries habitat.  The company was fined  $85,000 in Sechell Provincial  Court last November for Ihe vio-  , lation.  Meanwhile, a Richmond subsidiary of Lafarge Canada Inc.  was named for Ihe second lime to  BC Environment's list of environmental offenders, released  last week.  Based on dala collected from  Ihe Greater Vancouver Regional  District, the Richmond cement  plant exceeded ils permitted level  of air emissions for nitrogen  oxides and sulfur oxides.  BC Environment is not yet  certain whether legal action  against the company will be initiated.

An investigation by municipal staff has identified problems  wilh the installation for both  owners and developers.  In Sandy Hook and  Tuwanek, low-pressure areas  and sleep lots and ihe lack of  water-flow readings have made  il nearly impossible to design a  sprinkler system. Existing readings were supplied by Ihe Sunshine Coast Regional Dislricl  and are roughly four years old.  Other concerns of staff  included rcquircmcnls lo safeguard the municipality from  legal aclions should the system  suddenly fail.  These safeguards would also  incur additional costs for the  municipality, and inevitably lax-  payers, since all low-pressure  systems must be designed and  inspected by an engineer,  require annual system checks,  and be installed by a certified  sprinkler filter.  These and other requirements  could cost the municipality up lo  J10,000 for a house of 1,800  square feet.  After much discussion, the  planning committee recommended amending the sprinkler  bylaw by deleting the single-  family residential dwelling unit  requirement.

Nine  students, three parents and a  teacher work wilh Rzepa each  monlh lo promote awareness  about a chosen issue.  The nine students, from  grades three to seven, help  decide which issues they will  focus on each month.  In the past, the committee has  promoted good hygiene by  designing posters for Ihe washrooms. Nexl month it plans to  address playground safety.  Parents Carol Sauve, Eliza  beth Curry and Joan Stefanuk  are involved with the program  and helped the students decorate  the bulletin board on Monday.  "The feedback from the kids  is what's important," Stefanuk  explained.  "We really want to listen to  their issues."  Proper nutrition is also child's responsibility  by Christine Bodt  Some Sunshine Coast children are going to school in the  morning hungry.  According to Coast-Garibaldi  Health Unit dietician Dania  Matialion, children often forget  about eating breakfast in the rush  to get out Ihe door in the morning. Others eat their packed  lunch before they arrive at  school.  "It's really important thai kids  eal breakfast. Il's a third of our  day's nutritional intake," she  said.  Without a good breakfast,  concentration and learning may  be difficult.  Ini Matialion wants to stress the  importance of good nutrition to  both parents and children during  I994's Nutrition Month because  this year's theme is "Nourishing  Our Children's Future."  Throughout March, Matialion  and her colleagues will be available to answer questions and  offer suggestions to parents troubled by their children's eating  habits.  Through hunger strikes, food  fads or refusing to eat certain  items, food becomes a powerful  way for children to take control  of their lives at a young age, said  Matialion.  "Parents should be clear on  the division of responsibility  around food with their children.  As parents, we're responsible for  providing adequate nourishment,  and for setting limits for  behaviour around food, but we  are not responsible for whether  they eal it or not," she said. "Parents shouldn't get hooked into a  power struggle."  Using her own experience as  an example, Maliation said she  does not force her children to  finish their plate at dinner. "But I  leave it out," she said  "If they are hungry later, they  know they have to eat that food  first before having a snack."  Variety and a positive meal-  lime atmosphere will help insure  children eat properly.  ;' "Choosing the appropriate  Make healthy food 'cool' for  kids, says Coast nutritionist  by Christine Bodt  Coast dietician Dania Maliation is not against a McDonald's  restaurant opening in Sechelt.

"The key is moderation,"  Maliation said. "I've eaten at  McDonald's, but I balance Ihose  meals by eating well the rest of  the time."  She said that McDonald's  record in communily involvement was good, and thai a nutritional video produced by ihe  company ��� What's on Your  Plate ��� was excellent and never  mentioned McDonald's food.  Matialion said that children  like junk food because they are  bombarded wilh television commercials for things like pop,  chips and candy.  "They see adults eating it all  the time, loo," she said. "We  should think of a way to make  healthy food 'cool' or trendy for  teenagers and kids to eat."

A second  important meeting of Ihe DB/WCCA will be  held on Wednesday, March 9 at 7:30 pm at  Ihe hall. The issue boils down to one fundamental question: "Should the DB/WCCA be  the voice for the community in addressing all  issues of concern for all members of said  association?"  In the pasl, the CA has succeeded in  doing this by means of representation at  council meetings letting Iheir concerns be  known: letter writing, ie: ridding the beach  of the dumpsters; taking up petitions, ie: jet-  skis in Davis Bay.  Many residents have quietly written letters on Iheir own, made phone calls and  attended meetings, all in the interests of the  communily.  All members are urged to attend Ihis  meeting prepared lo listen and lo voice your  opinions while respecting ihose of others.  Then Ihis question will be resolved by a  vole. Because of Ihe necessity of this second  meeting on this issue, the annual general  meeting, which by bylaw must be held in  March, has been re-scheduled for March 30  at 7:40 pm.  If transportation is required, call Jim at  885-9367.  Beach erosion  The effects of erosion continues to alarm  residents of our community as each new  storm washes more of our beach into Ihe  ocean. Giant holes along the shoulder of the  highway remain a hazard, both to walkers as  well as motorists.  Jeff Taylor, who attends the environmental meetings every month, is asking anyone  who has pictures of the beach as it once was,  to please gel in touch with her at 885-6072.  The next meeting is March 22 at 3 pm at the  municipal hall. Try to be there.  Another of our popular residents, Jo Van-  derveen, is in St. Mary's Hospital with a  fractured ankle after an unfortunate meeting  wilh a cement abutment. Get well soon, Jo;  Jeff needs her bridge partner.  St. Mary's Hospital auxiliary brown bag  lunch lasl Monday was well attended with  members from every branch represented.  President Vivian Teeporten presented Ted  Wright, hospital administrator, with a cheque  for $114,000 to be used for patients' needs  and equipment.  The fashion show which followed was a  hit wilh everyone present.  Sixteen models swished and sashayed and  strutted down the runway, obviously enjoying themselves. All the fashions displayed  were from the racks of the Thrift Shop's  fashion salon.  Bouquets to: Miss Eli, Lady Gwendoline,  Beulah, Polly, Bubbles, Kenny, Joanie, Sister Stella, Humphrey, Princess Farah, Sassy,  Dolly, Slick, Candace, Petunia and the  Duchess of Donald - you guys were terrific.  A thought for the week: Take lime to  laugh; il is music to the soul.  RCMP regimental dinner part of old tradition  Members of the Sechelt  RCMP detachment hosted a  regimental dinner on March 2 at  Pebbles Restaurant in Sechell.  Sixty serving and retired  members from the Sunshine  Coast area and the Lower Mainland attended Ihe gala affair  clad in the traditional scarlet  tunics of Ihe RCMP.  The purpose of the regimental dinner stems from old Northwest Mounted Police traditions,  and dates back to the early days  of the police force we know  today as the RCMP.  It serves to promote good  fellowship, camaraderie and  sechelt scenario  high morale among the members. Presentations for 20 years  of dedicated voluntary service  to the Auxiliary police program  were made.  Auxiliary Constables Hersey  Sewell and William Lawson  received certificates of appreciation from die province of BC,  the District of Sechell and the  regional district.  The commanding officer of  the British Columbia, Deputy  Commissioner J. D. Farrell, was  in attendance.  He spent the day meeting  wilh civic officials from  Sechelt, Gibsons and the regional district.  Retired  commissioned  officer and  Mayor of  Sechelt Earl  Basse makes  a long-service  presentation  to Auxiliary  Constable  Bill Lawson  (at right).  Photo submitted  by Deanna Lueder, 885-7365  The other day our new pup  and. I were having a noisy argument at the front door. She was  clamouring lo get her leash on  first and I was claiming rights lo  shoes and coat. In Ihe middle of  the melee, the doorbell rang.  There-was a man and a woman  smiling tentatively; Ihey wore  identification badges from the  SPCA. Mitsou backed away  immediately. I could have sworn  she muttered, "No way, I'm nol  going back." They explained  they were doing follow-up adoption home visits. They were  checking to ensure that Mitsou  was getting the care she needed  and that we had made good on  our commitment to have her  spayed.  There are very few animal  welfare agencies that do follow-  up. This is as necessary a part of  halfmoon happenings  animal welfare as finding homes  for Ihe animals in Ihe first place.  There is negative publicity about  the SPCA shelter and its placements from time to time. We  should nol forget the vital service  the SPCA and its volunteers perform.  Without them many, many  creatures would suffer unduly  and threaten our community, the  SPCA needs more volunteers, so  if you want to become involved,  call volunteer coordinator Leslie  Schaff at 886-0307.  With Ihe combined efforts of  all the branches on the Sunshine  Coast, the St. Mary's Hospital  Auxiliary has raised $114,000  over the past year. This is a phenomenal sum considering Ihe  total population of Ihe Coast is  less lhan 30,000. The money will  be used lo purchase medical  equipment and materials for the  patients of the hospital and  Tolem Lodge. In these days of  declining medical funding Ihe  auxiliary's contribution becomes  all the more important.  You can help out the auxiliary  if you 'have any craft materials  you can spare - just drop them  off at Bobbie's Shoes in the mall.  They need everything from wool,  lace and trims, fabrics and fabric  paint to buttons and thread.

I think we've seen more of  our province, North Brabant, in  Ihose three weeks than we did in  Ihe 22 years we had lived there.  Bolh of us, being bom around  Tilburg in the early '30s, had lo  endure the German occupation  years (I940 to 1945) and never  really saw much more of our  country than a bicycle could get  you wilhin a few hours.  But this time we had a rented  car and travelled all over the  country to visit our relatives who  are abundant on bolh sides. I  never say lhal we go on a Holland vacation but rather that we  go on a Holland pilgrimage.  Anyhow, we're back home  and Ihere isn't one message on  my answering machine. Thai  seems very strange; either my  machine isn't working right or  the whole harbour is hibernating  somewhere.  Spring has spmng  A very unusual spring is taking place. Nol only the bears are  active early as reported last  week but on March 2 Ihe first  'goaling' was seen in the area  around Klein Holland. Never has  there been such an early reproduction of a shortly to be classified 'pest,' a beautiful bird which  is beginning to be a menace lo  the environment.  F-elgrass, which is not to be  taken by human hand without  being incarcerated, is freely  taken up by these Canada Geese  as if it was their God-given right,  which it might truly be.  But the eelgrass is disappearing like snow in the sun because  of these pests and if some control  on these birds isn't done shortly  by Environment Canada, this  could have disastrous effects on  the ecology.

Wives and  storekeepers dreamed of paying  off winter bills.  When this fishery stopped in  Ihe '60s, il was a blow lo Ihe  local economy. There were still  lots of cod, jusl no buyer. Some  years after intensive commercial  fishing was gone, the cod population starlcd lo drop. Various  things have been blamed: sport  fishing, treble hooks, scuba  spear-fishing, over-fishing herring, pollution...who knows?  Anyway, it wasn't those old-  timers on the first of March.  High spirits  Beams of light clove bright-  coloured palhs through swirls of  mist. In Ihe heart of the fog, four  men wielding strange instruments incanlcd in rhythmical  phrases.

Al least  that's ihe opinion of Ruth Moore,  president of the Sunshine Coasl  Business and Professional  Women's Club (BPW).  "ll amazes me lhal equal pay  is not more prevalent in sociely  lhan il is," Moore said in an  interview last week. Working to  promote equal pay between the  sexes is just one of Ihe many  issues Ihe BPW is involved in.  A member of Ihe Canadian  Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs, Ihe  local 45-member club joins with  groups across Canada to lobby  local, provincial and federal governments on issues ranging from  child-care lo violence against  women lo health-care, "Basically  anything thai involves working  women," Moore said.  The Sunshine Coasl BPW  actively encourages local women  lo further Iheir education. Every  year, the club funds two $500  bursaries thai cither help out  women returning lo school, or  mature students who want lo pursue posl-secondary schooling for  Ihe first lime.  , Club secretary Joan Wall said  Ihe BPW awards Ihe bursaries on  Ihe basis of need. "Wc also try to  make sure Ihe schooling will  bring some benefit lo the Coast.  We want the recipients to use  Iheir education here."  In the past, BPW bursaries  have helped Coasl women  upgrade nursing skills, attend  college and pursue law degrees.  Real-estate agent Moore said  lhat any working woman, of any  age, is welcome lo join the club.  "We want lo emphasize that  you don'l have to be a doctor. A  wide range of careers arc repre-  senled, from waitresses lo  lawyers."  Networking is another component or Ihe BPW.  "The club is a great way lo  break inlo the communily,"  Moore said. "Really, the club  provides women with a place lo  air and discuss things and it's  also a lol of fun."  The BPW holds seminars,  monthly dinner meetings with a  guest speaker, as well as yearly  fund-raising fashion shows that  benefit local organizations like  Transition House. Last year it  held an in-club trade show where  members showed each other  what they did for a living.  "We had everything from  Teredo Sq., Sechelt 885-9962  _^ 'Serving ihe Coasl (or 14 years'  Fresh soups, salads, quiches        ._.  pasta dishes & much more!     (T^^  Cacfb tfiirrob^.

Each June, the Sunshine Coast  BPW and the Gibsons BPW hold  a joint Sechelt inlet cruise.  Moore said the Sunshine Coast  chapter was founded 14 years  ago when the Gibsons club  became too large, but the two  clubs regularly interact with one  another.  Mini-conference targets Women in Business  The Sunshine Coasl Business  Development Centre is hosting a  "Women in Business - Taking  Ihe Next Step" mini-conference  in conjunction with the Ministry  of Small Business, Tourism and  Culture on Saturday, March 12,  1994. Ihe one-day event will be  targeted to the needs of business  owners, managers and professional women.  According to research compiled by the Federal Business  Developmeni Bank, one of the  major barriers experienced by  women entrepreneurs is Ihe difficulty in harmonizing family and  work responsibilities. While Ihis  workshop led by April Struthers  will nol give participants an  eighth day, il will offer strategics  u> help women manage their  time.,    /i", ;  The second workshop focuses  on "The Heart of Marketing ���  Building Relationship With Your  Customers." Facilitator Ann  Byres has created and managed  three successful small businesses  and has tailored a workshop with  a special focus on marketing  issues, trends and practices for  the Sunshine Coast.  The mini-conference will be  held at St. John's United Church  in Davis Bay. Lunch has been  sponsored by the Royal Bank,  Sechelt and the Sunshine Coast  Credit Union. Daycare has also  been sponsored courtesy of Deb  bie Mealia and Jim Budd of  Investors Group Financial Services. The conference fee is $49  (plus GST) and includes all printed materials. For more information or lo register for the conference contact Glenda Anderson al  885-1959 or fax 885-2707.  Business success/failure subject of research  Discovering why some business ventures succeed while others fail will be the focus of a  research program in UBC's Faculty of Commerce and Business  Administration which was  awarded a $2,125 million  research grant by llie Social Sciences and Humanities Research  Council of Canada (SSIIRC).  In addition to the SSIIRC  funding, UBC, along with vari  ous industrial partners, will provide the Entrepreneurial  Research Alliance (ERA) program with $1,525 million for  infrastructure and salary support,  bringing the total funding for the  program to $3.65 million.  The five-year ERA program,  the largest effort ever undertaken in Canada to create and disseminate knowledge on the formation and growth of knowl  edge-based enterprises, is headed by Prof. Raffi Amit, director  of the faculty's Entrepreneurship  and Venture Capital Research  Centre.

"We've had prelty happy lives  so we sing happy junk.. .we really are soft," said Lynne, co-writer/performer of Walk in Ihe  Wind, a 10-song collaboration  between her and husband Reg to  raise money for cystic fibrosis  (CF) research.  It's been almost eight months  since the Dicksons unleashed  their homegrown album on  unsuspecting Sunshine Coast residents, and the Davis Bay residents continue to ardently promote Iheir effort ��� with a smile,  no less.  The duo recently returned  from Victoria where they performed for Ihe BC chapter of Ihe  Cystic Fibrosis Association, ll  was a performance Ihe Dicksons  will never forget, especially Ihe  look in the eyes of the children  who were suffering from the  deadly disease.  "You can read all thai stuff  and it's all textbook (information), but when you go to Victoria and there's lhal little boy...,"  said Lynne, her voice trailing off.  "Everything you learn from  books is nothing like meeting  these people."  Walk in the Wind has generated considerable attention locally and provincially.  In Victoria, the duo had the  pleasure of meeting songwriter  and Juno award winner Gary  Fjellgaard, whose song Walk in  the Rain Tonight was covered on  Ihe Walk in the Wind release.  When they aren't performing  locally at shopping malls and  community events, the Dicksons  are busily flogging their effort to  other outlets, including Canadian  Living Magazine and CBC  Morning Edition.  "It's a great Canadian story. I  think Ihere a lot of great stories  jusl like this one," said Reg.  To date, the duo has managed  to raise $5,000 for CF research  through the sale of 500 tapes and  1,000 compact discs. Demand  has been so strong for the album  that Ihey have ordered another  500 tapes.  The recording has been distributed virtually everywhere on  the Coasl, predominantly to local  businesses, 44 of which contributed $250 each lo its making.  Walk in the Wind was produced at Bullfrog Studios in  Vancouver for $11,000.\ Seven  of ihe compositions were written  by the duo, and feature Gerry  Millar on bass, Doug Jang on  percussion, Paul Gitlitz on a  myriad of instruments including  mandolin, violin, banjo and  acoustic guitar.  The album cover was  designed by graphic artist Roger  Handling and Lee and Leigh  Taylor helped orchestrate the  kites flying in the background on  the cover photograph.  Last fall, the duo participated  in the making of a video for the  title track with Coast Cable TV's  Steve Sleep at Davis Bay beach.

For residents who haven't  heard Walk in the Wind or Ihe  Dicksons, expect something of a  cross between folk, country pop  and a watered down version of  Sharon, Lois and Bram, with a  hint of Glen Campbell thrown in  for good measure.  It's the kind of music that is  Don Anderson photo  so sweet it will rot your teeth.  Reg, a performer for more  than 20 years on the Coast and  father of Shannon, Sara and Amy  Dickson, said the duo's music is  "pretty damn popular" on the  Coasl and Ihe songs on Walk in  the Wind were written wilh a  positive bent.  "We don't write negative  songs," said Reg,.  "We had to choose the songs  with CF in mind...it had to be  positive things in mind for Ihis  recording."  Coast actress portrays three women  It's the premiere of a new  Canadian play.  Roberts Creek actor and playwright Caitlin Hicks will open  her latest artistic venture entitled  Singing the Bones at the Rockwood Centre in Sechell, March  18. Hicks' husband and director  of the play, Gordon Halloran,  spoke about Ihe work Friday.  He described il as "a very  strong story...(one that's) interesting to watch and exciting to  see unfold."  Singing Ihe Bones is the story  of three women ranging in age  from 37 to 60.  The story is aboul birth, said  Halloran. ll "tries to give birth  and the idea of birth Ihe kind of  dignity and respect (it deserves)  and nuke it central lo our lives."  Il's not all heavy, Halloran  added. "There is definitely a lot  of humour.  "The (characters) are real people so il runs the whole gamut of  emotions...it's very moving."  In Ihe Rockwood performance, Hicks will perform all  three parts.  Halloran said the play is  unique in lhat it focuses on  women and women's issues. In  Canada, according lo statistics  issued by the Women's Caucus  of Playwrights, only 15-20 per  cent of plays produced in the  country are by women, and fewer  on the arts beat  still have women as central characters. The play is unique too in  the space it will occupy for Friday's performance. Rockwood's  north wing will be transformed  into a theatrical space of colour  and light for the performance.  Halloran said Ihe set will be  kept simple in ils design, but  complex in Ihe use of Ihe stage.  The audience will be allowed to  move with the actor through two  rooms created by a curtain and  lights. ;  Original music for Sineingthe  Bones was written by Vajcouftr1  Jazz artist Dee Daniels. Halloran'  said he was not yet certain  whether Ihe singer would be able  to perform at the weekend premiere or if tapes would be used.  Halloran said after performing  on the Sunshine Coast, bolh he  and Hicks had intentions of touring the play nation-wide as well  as into the United Slates.  "It's a great story, one that  I'm totally committed to," he  said.  Singing ihe Bones will be performed March 18 and 19 at Ihe  Rockwood Cenlre. Advance tickets are on sale for $12 at the  Roberts Creek General Store,  Sayward Books ih Gibsons and  Talewind Books in Sechelt.  Tickets will also be sold al the  door for $15.

Elphie basketball woes continue
by Ian Cubb
Already beleaguered by a lack
of funding, the Elphinstone Secondary School basketball program ran into more trouble last
week.
The senior boys' Cougars had
their successful season and a
provincial championship run
yanked from under them Feb. 26
when head coach Bill Sluis
pulled his team off the court during a game against the Sutherland Sabres.
Citing one-sided refereeing,
Sluis pulled his players off the
court in Ihe third quarter. They
were losing by 40 points.
After narrowly losing lo Ihe
Sabres by Iwo points earlier in
Ihe year, Ihe 40-poinl deficit was
suspicious, Sluis said. And on
top of lhal, his star players were
raking up fouls at a season-high
rale.
Guard Ryan Dempster fouled
out in the third quarter. Dempster, Sluis argued, never fouls
oul.
"The lasl foul Ryan got, he
had the ball and a player pushed
him wilh an arm and grabbed the
ball. Ryan chased him and tried
to grab Ihe ball and the ref called
him," Sluis said.
That, he said, was an example
of how the game went for the
Cougars.
At the point Sluis pulled the
team, members had run up 17
fouls. The seasonal average for
the team for an entire game was
12, the coach said.
"I've been coaching for 13
years and I've never done anything like this," Sluis said.
Following Dempster's fifth
foul, which also resulted in a verbal exchange between the player
and the head referee, Sluis was

JSL \% 4*
Bill Sluis
informed by the referee lhal the
Cougars "were oul of control"
and unsportsmanlike.
At that, Sluis pulled the team
oul of Ihe game.
"If I hadn't pulled that team
off there would hive been
fights," he said.
Sluis' actions have received a
mixed array of responses, including a parent of one of the Sabres
writing a scathing fax to him.
Yet he is sticking to his guns
and hopes his actions will result
in better organization next season, including the playing of
important games at neutral sites
and with neutral referees.
"If anything, the North Shore
is going to be more aware of the
zone play-offs and hold games at
neutral sites wilh two refs doing
the game and another in the
stands watching," Sluis said.
Chatelech Secondary School
senior boys' Eagles coach
Vladan Jovicevic, al Sutherland
to watch the game, agreed wilh
Sluis thai Ihe referees appeared
to be leaning past the impartiality
line.
"It was prctly obvious Ihey
were one-sided," he said, adding
Sluis'actions were justified.
"It was pretty poorly 'reffed.'
I was totally freaked out when I
saw these things happening," he
said.
Though angered at nol being
able lo finish the game, the team
now understands why Sluis
pulled them.
"I explained lo them about
fair play and sportsmanship and
how you don't let somebody kick
you when you're down. When it
is unfair, you have lo make a
stand. The boys didn't come
away as losers; Ihey came away
wilh pride and knowing lhal Ihey
don'l have lo accepl that kind of
treatment."
Sluis said he tried to find a
way for Ihe learn to go lo the
provincial tournament "Ihrough
the back door, bul Iherc's no
way. Their season is over."
Ile also tried to find a way to
file a complaint against Ihe referees bul "there's no process to do
il."
The Cougars season ended
with a 19-win, five-loss record.
"All of these guys should feel
really proud of their season and
of what they've done," he said.
On a more positive nole, after
hearing about their cash problems through a Coast News article, several unnamed local residents donated $1,000 to Ihe
school's basketball program.
One person donated $800 and
two others offered $100 donations.
"They've really come
Ihrough. ll was nice," Sluis said.

said Walter Tripp, vice-president
of the minor hockey association.
The association has formed a
so-called"imprsgroup" lo investigate the possibility of raising .
funds and lobbying focal governments for the development of a

time for the many young aspiring
hockey players who don't get a
chance to play on the existing ice
surface. i • ■.. ulq bun
The skale-a-thon will be held
over several days after the official closing of the rink April 3.
The ice will be laken out following Ihe fundraiser. The association will also send young
skaters oul to canvass funds in
the community.
"We are going to put every
cenl that is raised toward a second sheet of ice," Tripp said.
"We have asked the staff to
work for nothing and it looks
like il is going to go. The municipality seems to behind us 100
per cenl."
The association has been
reviewing the concept for several
weeks, but didn't decide to adopt
it until il was clear from the Feb.
27 meeting of the Sunshine
Coasl Recreation Complex Society's meeting lhat it may have lo
go it alone to gamer support for a
second sheet of ice.
"Basically, what I find from
lhal group is they are a bunch of
competitive swimmers and Ihey
don't have a lot more focus lhan
a 25 metre pool," Tripp said.
"And Ihey are willing to go in
with whoever might be able lo
get them a pool."
The recreation complex sociely foresees the phased development of a pool and youth centre
lhat would eventually include a
second sheet of ice.
Tripp said the association
can't wail four yeius for more ice
lime.
"The way I feel aboul it is il's
time we got something around
here rather than procrastinate for
another five years and end up
wilh nothing," he said.
There are about 5 reasons for not becoming a Mock parent.
NONE OF THEM MAKES ANY SENSE.
Number One. I work all day. Even If you do a few hours a week It's a help.
NumberTwo. I'm nol a parent. You don't have lo he one to care about the safety of children. Retired
citizens and single parents can be block parents.
Number Three. IV always help sign or not. Most children are taught to he wary of strangers. Our sign
lei's ihem know your're a stranger they can trust because you've been checked nut by the police.
Number Four. I don t want to open my bouse to strangers. You don'l have to. All your doing Is
giving sanctuary lo a frightened child and contacting the proper authorities.
Number Five. There art enough block parents already. There aren't. Every block parent isn't
available all the time. So the more the belter.
So why not pick up an application from the (iihsons School*, Gibsons Medical Clinic, Gibsons Health
Unit, or the Gibsons R.C.M.P. Or call Diane Kallel, coordinator 8869240 for more Information.
Gibsons Block Paront Program
We will be in Sunnycrest Mall March 19, 1994 sports  Coast News, March 7, 1994  15  Shannon Phillips.  on the rocks  hy Harry Turner  The ladies Mardi (iras Spiel  got under way on Ihe Feb. 26  weekend with 24 rinks coming  from all over Ihe Lower Mainland ��� as far oul as Abbolsl'ord  ��� compcling for a shot in Ihe  finals.  Our club looked great, all  decorated wilh guitars, banners  and streamers. The spiel started  early Friday and Ihe club  buzzed with excitement until it  ended late Sunday afternoon.  In the A event finals, Ihe  Axford foursome from Ihe  Burnaby Winter Club edged oul  the local Solinsky team to win  by one rock.  B event was taken by Ihe  Johnston rink of Abbotsford  from Clark of Richmond. C  event saw the Mcleod team  from Coquitlam lake an early  lead over Hogg of Cloverdale  and hold it for the win.  The ladies lend lo play more  of a draw game, although I saw  a lol of fine knock-oul shots  being executed lhat weekend.  The draw game is a risky game  and playing draw early in the  game is not recommended by  Ihe experts until after you are  down by several points.  The draw game is often teller on our ice because it tends  lo swing.  On swingy ice the knockout  game is a little more difficult lo  execute and I saw a few games  lost by knockouts which were  not effectively played because  of the swing.  Wally McDonald, Ihe Music  Man, did his usual music magic  on Salurday nighl and I am told  the ladies partied until the wee  hours of Ihe morning. The curling draws were all on time  despite a couple of games having to run into extra ends.  This is the lasl big bonspiel  of the year and again a lol of  people need to be thanked for  all the work Ihey have put into  making ihis a successful spiel.  Wilf Haake. our ice-maker put  in a lot of hours this weekend,  as he does every spiel  Thanks Wilf. A sit-down  seafood dinner was provided by  Ron Baba and company. Ron  has done Ihe ladies' dinner for  many years and it is always  done well. We would like to  thank our sponsors - A event,  SuperValu; B evenl. Sunshine  Coast Credit Union; and C  event, Shell Canada. Harding  and Son. There were some very  nice prizes, gifl baskets, handbags, cordless phones, cookbooks, vases, quills and many  others too numerous lo men-  lion.  If you know someone who  put a lot of energy lo make Ihis  a successful weekend, thank  them because we need help lo  do it again next season. Without the volunteers who put in so  much effort, the Gibsons Winter Club could nol function. So  lhanks, folks; we appreciate  your help and dedication.  BUCK  in the hand is worth  more lhan a garage  full of junk."  To dace vour add .call  885 3930 or 886 2622  April Fool's racers need to train  There's no time like the presenl to gear up for the 16th  annual Sunshine Coasl April  Fool's 22-kilometre half  marathon on the Sunshine Coast.  According lo run coordinator  Shannon Phillips, now's a good  lime to start training for the  event.  The April Fool's Run is  scheduled to kick off at 9 a.m.  April 10 in Hackett Park,  Sechelt.  This year, participants are  invited to team up in fours and  run Ihe distance as a relay.  And, due to its growing popularity, a 10-kilometre walk is  also an option this year.  For those keen on running the  lull 22 kilometres, training is  Important, Phillips said.  Phillips, a runner and physical fitness cnlhusiasl herself,  said half-marathoncrs should be  oul Ihere now, slowly but steadily getling Iheir bodies' systems  adapted to the physical  endurance that will be needed in  April.  "It's not a good thing just to  jump in and do it," she said.  She also said run participants  should take a good look al Ihe  kind of shoes they will be wearing for the race.  "It's not a good thing to have  brand new shoes."  If new shoes are in order, a  two-week break-in period is suggested before the run.  For runners ils imperative to  have a proper running shoe,  Phillips said. As for walkers, a  walking shoe or cross-trainer  will do Ihe trick.  Phillips said a lol of interest  has been generated this year in  the April Fools Run both on the  Coasl and across Ihe Lower  Mainland. Already 60 entry  forms have been mailed oul and  several calls from interested parties have come in.  "People are jusl interested in  fitness," Phillips said.  No entry figures have yel  been tallied. Ihe deadline for  registration is March 25.  This year's run is a charity  event wilh funds raised in aid of  the Vancouver Children's Hospilal.  Run participants are encouraged lo gel pledges themselves  or challenge another runner,  business or group to earn funds.  Lasl year over 40 runners  turned out to challenge themselves on Ihe Gibsons to Sechelt  run.  Doug Mulligan, 27, of Halfmoon Bay was Ihe April Fool's  winner, running Ihe entire  course in just one hour and 20  minules.  Three members of the Sechelt  Fire Department, including fire  chief Bill lliggs, were first over  the finish line for Ihe relay  learns.

Frothing about Shwinghammers?
Wouldn't a junior hockey
franchise look good on ihe Sunshine Coast?
I know, I know, you're
already screaming about the fact
we have but one sheet of ice to
accommodate everyone with an
active pair of skates.
So let's build a second sheet
of ice. I know it's not as simple
as that but we have lo get off our
dulls, quil complaining about the
lad we need another sheet and as
Kinsellu raved, build the darned
Ihing and Ihey will come.
I can't believe Ihere are still
discussions about whether or not
we need another rink. It's ridiculous. Even if John Spelling dnd
Impact Productions weren't pursuing a junior hockey franchise,
which they're pretty well assured
of gelling as long as Ihey can
conic up wilh Ihe money, we
need Ihe ice.
With Ihe population growing
ihe way il is and the popularity of
hockey and figure-skating
increasing, let's get the facilities
in and operating before our youth
go Insane and form street gangs
and the like. Let them take their
bursting little anxieties and frustrations oul through sports.
Everyone will benefit from a
second sheel of ice and not just
me, a hockey-starved, sports
writer wanna-be.
A second sheet of ice open
during the prime-time hours,
meaning weekends and evenings,
will help generate revenue. The
more revenue raised, the less
weight applied lo the bruised
shoulders of Ihe lax-payer.
The fewer shoulder bruises
lax-payers have lo complain
about, the less insipid whining

Life is a tricky equation
The "trick" is to find the constant
The Coast News has been a constant on the Sunshine Coast for over 46 years Over those years we've
watched the world change around us while we've remained steady as a rock, providing a safe, reliable
institution for your advertising dollar.
The first issue of the Coast News rolled off the presses on July 11, 1945. providing in-depth coverage for the
Coast's little more than 500 residents. Today, we're .still covering the Coast lor its 25,000-plus residents,
faithfully marking the passage of every week in history.
Life is too variable to predict what the next 50 years will hold, but with your support the constant will be the
COAST^NEWS
puck's bruise
we'll hear. And with insipid
whining wiped away, we'll be
lhat much closer to Nirvana and
ultimately, God, that poker-loving nul-bucket, will lei us enter
into his/her kingdom and oooh,
the card games we shall endure.
Where was I?
Sheet! A junior hockey team
will play aboul 30 home games a
year, not counting the play-offs.
This means on 30-plus different
occasions, a bus load of 16- lo
18-ycar-old athletes with obscene
appetites will descend upon the
town of Sechelt and begin spending the little money they have.
Yes, we will be able lo fleece
these poor sots on every given
occasion and, hopefully, as they
try to skate about on a new sheet
of Sechelt Arena ice, their turn-
turns stuffed full of digesting Big
Macs, our team ... the ... Ihe ...
Sunshine Coast, umm...Shwinghammers, will punish Ihem.
And as our team travels about
the junior hockey circuit, il will
cany our name wilh them.
"Where the hell is the Sunshine Coast?" people will ask.
Junior hockey franchises can
be great PR for a town.
Then there is the hero factor.
Little gaffers go ballistic over
older hockey players. If Ihe Sunshine Coast Minor Hockey Association and the eventual junior
minor hockey news
lancobb
franchise can link up and share
team colours and all lhal rigama-
role, Ihe snowball effect will be
huge.
One of the principal players
behind Ihe push to bring junior
hockey here has said thai if Ihey
snag a Junior B operation, there's
a good likelihood we'll be affiliated with the Powell River Paper
Kings. All of this is positive.
An area in search of a one-
government-identity can really
stand to find a commonality.
Having people cheering for a
hockey team that represents the
entire peninsula would be one of
Ihe healthiest things to happen lo
the Sunshine Coasl.
II will boost our image in the
eyes of the tut-lulling Lower
Mainland and elsewhere and if
we win a lot, we can be VERY
smug. Nol only do we live in a
place everyone else wants to live
— our hockey learn kicks their
butts.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I've
been smelling loo much coffee
and I think my right hemisphere
is about lo launch an invasion of
my left hemisphere.
The lasl time that happened, I
retired from Ihe railway and
woke up on a Baja, California
beach with my Ihumb stuck in a
bottle of very dangerous Mexican vodka.
With an impressive first
place finish in Ihe Lion's Gale
Bantam C League, the Sunshine
Coast Bantam C Leafs are set-
ling their focus on a March 9
play-off tourney.
The team finished their 33-
game regular season Feb. 20
wilh a victory over North Vancouver #3. T(ie vicIorjTrounireiF
Ihe team's record out lo 17
wins, 12 losses and four lies.
And due to an impressive
sportsmanship (few penalties)
record, the team compiled an
exlra 20 points to add onto their
standings and finished first in
the seven-team league with 58
points.
Two North Vancouver teams
tied for second wilh 57 points.
The final game of the season
was a special one for marksman
Jason Knox who tallied his 50th
goal of the season.
Team manager Gordon Bish
op credits coach Lance l.acey
and assistant coach Richard
Knight for a lot of the Leafs'
regular season success.
The coaches have "brou/tht
together these players and created a team thai doesn't give up
and plays with enthusiasm and
sportsmanship," he said.^/ (
Thfs' is the second straight
year in which coach l.acey has
guided a Coast team to a first
place finish in the Lion's Gale
League.
The Leafs open their round
robin play-off run March 9
against fourth place North Vancouver #3. After lhat, il's
malch-ups against fifth place
Squamish and eighth place
West Vancouver.
The results of this round
robin series will sel the table for
a league championship game
March 12 at the North Shore
Winter Club.

Cam Reid.  "The court process is often  slow and we expect the court  process lo solve our problems  and il doesn't involve the family  and often doesn't involve participants other than the accused."  That's why he's involved in a  movement to establish a program  called the "Communily Accountability Program" on Ihe Sunshine  Coasl. Under Ihe program, a  community-based panel which  would seek its own solutions in  dealing with criminal matters  rather than have them creep  through the courts.  "If family and peer involvement happened, there may be  more success in dealing wilh  problems," Reid said. "We can't  expect the courts to solve all our  Floor  Floor  1 Jh,<K,��$>C����,i  a^V^sZr**"*'*  Hurry,  Sale Ends Soon!  4��  ���<^m  ^ISrl'M,  Jr<  lQn6)  s9k  problems wilh a magic wand."  Such community accountability programs have been tried  wilh varying degrees of success  in several BC communities.  The Sechell Indian Band initiated a similar program about one  year ago and "the effects seem to  be very positive," Reid said.  Reid himself established such  a program in Burns Lake wilh  Ihe Chcs Lalta Hand when he  was posted there prior to coming  lo Sechell.  "Elders, councillors and others look al options and solutions  and come lo an agreement wilh  individuals as lo the remedial  aclion lo follow," Reid said.  The crimes againsl communily this program would likely deal  with would include such things  as shoplifting and other kinds of  thefl, vandalism, assaults and  some liquor offences.  Whal makes the program  more effective is thai a panel of  communily members can "consider and recommend other  options that may not he available  to the court," Reid said.  Such a diversion program  would also provide another  option for Ihe police and courts.  Local Crown Counsel Tony  Rowley said a similar diversion  program is already in place in the  province through the probation  office and during his tenure on  the Coasl he's seen "hundreds,  maybe thousands" of such cases.  Mostly it's youngsters picked  up by the police for a minor  offence for the first lime or an  elder member of Ihe community,  also picked up for "oul of character" behavior.  "We do it (diversion) with  people we hope wc won't sec  again," Rowley said.  Reid said the program he  would like lo set up is similar tn  the provincial program but  would be a separate entity.  "There's more honesty in this  process than in the courts.  There's no 'you testified againsl  me,' especially when it's families. Often, instead of resolving  the issue, we victimize the victim  further. We're nol looking for  guilt, we're looking for solutions," Reid said.  A diversion panel could come  up with solutions that would satisfy a victim and make it clear lo  the perpetrator that what he or  she has done is hurt a member of  the community.  Although Ihe behaviour of  first-time or minor offenders is  "objectionable, we don't wriie4  them off," Reid said.  "I'm not saying il will be perfect but it will be a big improvement."  Such a program would also  place more responsibility on Ihe  police, he said. At present, nolice  report an incident and then hand  it over to the courts for determination.  "We're not just reporting an  incident but trying lo solve il  now," he said.  Reid has taken his proposal  before Sechell and Gibsons town  councils as well as the Sunshine  Coasl Regional District.  "Quite simply, the court system is not working for young  offenders and if there's another  option, I'm favorably disposed lo  it," said Gibsons mayor Brie  Small.  "I'm really hoping we can gel  it going on Ihe Coast."  Pending the local governments' expressed interest and  financial contributions to help  pay for a part-time coordinator,  "I would hope lo initiate a program by April 1," Reid said.
