It's almost spring-like and the air is clear  and fresh. Or so it would seem.  An air bulletin from Chilliwack however, would indicate it's not all smelling like roses. A reading from that  fair city indicates the air quality is more than poor, it's  downright dangerous.  The information, culled from a Vancouver Sun article,  indicates weather and the exuberance of holiday traffic  may have combined to create the pollution problems.  The article says, even though an estimated 560,000  tonnes of pollution is emitted into the Lower Mainland air  on an annual basis, prevailing winds usually keep our  source of life breathable.  560,000 tonnes...  Despite the fact that we here are blessed with decent  weather, the kind of weather that allows us to breathe,  560,000 tonnes of pollution we help produce is going  somewhere. It isn't gone just because on an average day  it doesn't affect us.  Perhaps we should regard this freak of weather patterns  keeping our mess in our own backyard as a mixed blessing ��� we should view it as proof of the toxins we produce and we should view it as a glimpse into the future,  an indication of what we could be living in if we don't  make some changes.  What measures we as individuals can take to reduce air  pollution may seem marginal, but in the grander scheme  of things, every little bit helps. Walk every now and then  when you go to the store ��� leave the car at home when  possible.  If you know your car is polluting, have it fixed. There  are, in fact, laws in place to ensure driving polluting cars  is a fineable offence, but this is an issue that should be  purely a matter of conscience.  When it comes to dealing with backyard waste, think a  bit about the consequences of burning. Maybe composting or a trip to the landfill aren't such taxing experiences.  Yes, people are phenomenally adaptable. And we can  most likely find ways to deal with deteriorating air quality, just as we now expect to apply sun block to deal with  a deteriorating ozone layer. But we should all be trying a  little harder to prevent problems rather than waiting until  makeshift cures are necessary.  A little effort and expense now and we could all be  breathing easier in the years to come.  Thanks for  the effort  Hats off to all the volunteer groups who helped make the  holidays a happy time for those in need of help.  To the Elves Club and the food banks, to the Legions, to  the Rotarians and to the Lions, to the auxiliaries and to all  the other groups and individuals who gave of their time  and effort, it has not gone unappreciated.  As a collective you are perhaps the best example of why  the Coast is such a great place to live. All the best.  Defining 'record',  for the record  Editor Stuart Burnside presumably wrote the editorial  'Protecting the recorded history  of the Sunshine Coast' Coast  News, Dec. 29,1994. He may be  right in assuming I lack "a basjc  understanding" of the term  'paper of record'. It is not a term  I would use, but it has been  pressed into use by some letter  writers to lionize the Coast  News.  The term was common in  Chaucer's time. It has long been  obsolete, so Stuart's understanding is unlikely to be any better  than mine. (My authority for 'of  record' and subsequent semantic  definitions is The Oxford  English Dictionary 1977 edition. I consulted the 1932 editions also.)  Citing the Coast News'  record longevity, Stuart seems  lo view 'record' as defined:  "beyond all others of the same  kind; spec, the best recorded  achievement in competitive  sport." Defining 'a paper of  record.' however, is not so simple as he suggests. Yes, the  Coasl News holds the record as  the longest serving newspaper.  'Of record' doesn't fit here  though. Would one write about  Carl Lewis as 'an athlete of  record'?  'Record' as applied to newspapers carries the meaning:  "The fact or condition of being  preserved as knowledge, esp. by  being pul into writing."  This definition pertains to all  our legitimate newspapers, all of  which have archives preserved  in Victoria.  Hence each qualified as a  'paper of record'. Contextually,  therefore, the term is not only  obsolete but is also contradictory-  Fortunately the Coasl News'  archives are also preserved  locally. I deplore as much as  anyone the dumping of The  Press' archives, an act of inexcusable and, surpassing stupidity-  Stuart certainly knows now  that I would just as much  deplore the loss of the Coast  News': I sent him a copy of  what I wrote to owner Bob  Doull supporting Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum's bid lo secure  the paper's archives.  Finally I wonder why he uses  the redundancy "one Allan  Crane." Perhaps he intends lo  denigrate and uses "one" to  imply that I am little known  and/or of little consequence. If  this indeed reflects his view  when he's lived here for only  four or five years, he should  study the archives. We're on Ihe  same side when it comes to preserving them.  ALLAN CRANE  Roberts Creek  Talk about community spiritl  On the evening of Dec. 12,  our loyal SPCA volunteers got  together to stuff 12,000  envelopes for our coast-wide  mail out.

A job well done by only 17  people. We would never have  done this without the help of  Cedars Inn managers, Tony and  Ruth Hemza.  Thank you for the accommodation and your valuable help  with counting and stuffing the  envelopes. You were great!  In the same mode, another  great sense of community spirit  goes out to Bob Buckle, owner  of McDonald's in Sechelt. On  Dec. 17, McDonald's "Help the  Animals" day look place.  Although it was a cold, rainy  and windy day, lots of people  came out to support the SPCA.  Including a percentage of  McDonald's sales, plus donations and memberships, we took  home approximately $800 for  our animals in need. Thank you,  Bob and your wonderful staff.  P.S. Did anyone see which way  that gorilla went?  Our "Pet Food Banks,"  deposited at various locations  throughout the community, were  an overwhelming success.  Again, thank you all for your  kind donations.  It is people like you who  bring hope and lighl back into  our animals' hearts.  And to all ihose volunteers  who freely give their time and  love to help our less fortunate  animals, lhank you for caring.  We need you.  The President and Board  Members, SPCA Sunshine  Coast Branch  Thankyou, Mrs. Cubbison, for inflaming the imagination  Each time we check out our groceries at the  supermarket we are surrounded by temptation. For  those with children, it's gum or candy bars. For us  grown-ups, it's reading material. You can, while  you wait in line, browse through glossy magazines  on gourmet food, little Dell books on horoscopes  or dieting or, the biggest temptation of all, tabloids  like the National Enquirer.  Every week lurid headlines promise us the  inside story on everything from the Royal family to  Roseanne's invitro fertilization. Glossy colour photos of O.J. Simpson and Vanna White promise us  j'Jicv tidbits on inner pages and the table of contents ic.'es us with items on how we can become  guaranteed millionaires in just six months or lose  60 pounds in 60 days.  It's hard to pass these by. After all, when a  headline reads: "98-year-old nun had twins!" who  wouldn't be interested in reading further. But I do  resist the temptation, partly because I'd be embarrassed to have people think I'd spend my money or  time on such blatant exploitation and partly  because I know that when I get home I'll probably  find the 98-year-old nun was just helping baby-sit  her great-grand nieces who just happen to be twins.  But still, each time I'm at the checkout the temptation persists.  coastlines  That's where Mrs. Cubbison comes in. I found  her on lhe shelf at Clayton's in Sechelt the other  day. She makes, among other things, Mrs. Cubbi-  son's Onion and Garlic Croutons. It was a toss-up  between her and Brownberries' product, but when  I saw what was on Ihe back of Mrs. C's package, I  immediately decided upon her.  There, complete with pictures, was "The Mrs.  Cubbison's Slory." Who could resist? Once home,  I could hardly wait until I got my groceries  unpacked to gel the lowdown on Mrs. 'C. Well,  like the National Enquirer, it was a disappointment. All I found out was that Mrs. Cubbison had  pioneered several "popular" products in the early  1900s.  Her most notable success, according to the  nancy maclarty  package, was her Melba Toasted Dressing and  Corn Bread Stuffin'. Tasty, I'm sure, but not  intriguing. However, il did give me an idea.  We all know il's a dog-eat-dog world out there  in the area of retail grocery sales. More money is  spent on packaging design than on content. So  what would happen if these companies started to  print Enquirer-type stories on the backs of their  packages? You'd either spend a lot of time browsing the aisles and reading packages or, more probably, buy the product wilh the juiciest stories.  I am therefore in the midst of preparing a proposal to several national brand companies suggesting just that.  I'm explaining in the proposal lhat people could  gel the juicy gossip without the embarrassment or  guilt of going through the checkout with one of the  tabloids. Folks could buy the product, because they  need it, and still get the lowdown on people like  Burt and Loni or Charles and Camilla.  I'm explaining in my proposal that this would  be a sure fire method of upping their sales. After  all, if you had a choice between a box of detergent  that just told you how clean it would make your  wash and a similar product with the heading on the  back "107-year-old woman sued for bigamy by  teen husband" - which would you buy?  Imagine milk cartons wilh exposes on Dolly  Parton or breakfast cereal boxes wilh Ihe lowdown  on what really happened on Michael Jackson and  Lisa Marie Presley's wedding night. Bread wrappers with stories aboul Loreena Bobbit, Bandaid  boxes with testimonials from John Bobbit. Canned  hams with details of David Letterman's love life,  or, especially for us folks on the Sunshine Coast,;  frozen banana cream pies with a play-by-play  description of Brett and Larry's Ecuadoran nights  printed on the inside cover.  I think I have a winner here. And, who knows,  if my ideas are bought, I could end up the subject  of one of those get-rich-quick articles you see in all  the tabloids. And it's all thanks to good old Mrs.  Cubbison.

Coast News, January 4,1995  letters  Centring on  censorship  Regarding the poetry book  controversy, what I'd like to  know is this: How did Moira  Zealand rate a reply to her concern in a mere two years?  It must be over three years  ago now lhat I wrote a letter to  the school trustees about a subject which offended me. In the  wake of the Maxine's Tree controversy, I decided to speak up  about Ihe forestry company-  sponsored field trips that were  going on in School District 46.  These were accompanied by a  glossy brochure that tried to justify clearcutting and were led by  a Canfor (I believe that was the  company, I stand corrected if  I'm wrong) forester who gave  his employer's side of the  forestry debate.  I wenl with my daughter on  one of these field trips and tried  to ask intelligent questions when  I doubled the information we  were being given, but being a  mere parent, not an expert, I  didn't have facts at the tip of my  fingers with which to dispute  what we were being told. One of  the "facts" the forester told us  was that slash-burning is good  for the forest.  I later read an article that  claimed the intense heat of  slash-burning, unlike a natural  fire, destroys micro-organisms  in the soil that are necessary to  the regrowth of the forest.  When my daughter returned  from a second forestry field trip  saying, "The forest companies  aren't so bad, they plant a lot of  trees, you know," she was  unwilling to listen when I  explained that many of those  baby trees die because forest  plantations are not a natural  method of regeneration.  What was needed here, I  decided, was some dialogue - a  counter-expert on forest ecosystems to challenge the Canfor  employee, or a panel discussion  between the forester and a  knowledgeable environmentalist. You will note that I did not  ask that the field trips be made  'inaccessible, only that both  sides of Ihe controversy be  given a hearing. This approach  differs, I think, from Ms.  Zealand's. I asked - to quote  John Pass's excellent letter from  Ihe Dec. 19 Coasl News - that  the school district provide "a  forum for balanced and fair  minded discussion" of the  "offending" material.  What response did I gel? To  her credit, trustee Shawn Cardinall voiced the opinion lhat a  parent's complaint about curriculum ought to be taken seriously.  I then received a letter saying  they'd look into il. Last I heard  it had been referred to some  committee or other. As I said,  that was three years ago, at  least. 1 have only so much lime  and energy I'm willing to  devote to pursuing these matters.  Now, I'll bet that dealing  with my complaint would have  caused the trustees far less trouble than Ms. Zealand's has  caused them. But I guess they  can relate better to a parent's  demand for censorship than to a  simple request that both sides of  a controversy be given a hearing.  I am fascinated by the array  of reasons given for restricting  access to this book. "Racism,"  "sexism," "four-letter words"  and, my personal favourite,  "anti-establishment attitudes."  That about covers anything that  might offend either the "politically correct" left or the "family  values" right. Strange bedfellows indeed.  As for "anti-establishment  attitudes," society would never  change, for good or ill, if no one  ever espoused thoughts that  went against the grain of that  society.  Such socially acceptable  institutions as democracy and  Christianity were "anti-establishment" at one time.  It never occurred to me that  anti-establishment thinking  might be interpreted as a kind of  degeneracy by some. As for the  other objections, the classics of  the 19th century and earlier are  full of racism and sexism. Shall  we restrict access to these by  grades 8, 9 and 10? When my  daughter was little I bought her  a copy of A Child's Garden of  Verses.  Though some of these verses  are distinctly racist and imperialist in content, rather than  deprive my children of the  delights of the more inoffensive  selections I explained to them  that I was sure Robert Lewis  Stevenson had been a nice man  who just didn't know any better  than to write patronizing drivel  about black children, that it  wasn't his fault, just how people  thought in the last century. Then  there was that guy who removed  all the "dirty" words from  Shakespeare in order to make it  fit for young ladies to read.  And when I read the Bible  through at age 12, I could not  help but notice that sexual  ' assaults add war atrocities (often  perpetrated by the "chosen people" themselves) were described  in great detail.  No, this was a big can of  worms for School District #46  to open!  Maybe they're wishing by  now that they'd stuck to dealing  with complaints from those of  us who merely make pleas for  tolerance.

Larry Jardine saying he is not  going as a lourisl bul representing the SCRD.  What does he expect to do in  Ecuador?

With any luck  they will (1) laugh them out of  town, (2) stone them out of  town, (3) put them in a looney  bin. My personal comments: If  Larry Jardine does not have to  be replaced while on vacation  and all goes well without him,  what do we pay him for anyway?  I thought Ihe SCRD was  voted in for the Sunshine Coast.  Since when does the Regional  District have jurisdiction over  Foreign Affairs? I thought Foreign Affairs was a federal government mandate.  If Jim Gurney can accuse the  media of misinformation, I think  he should be accused of (sic)  Bigotry more so than Ihe people  who express their views to the  media. Personally, I think lhe  media is doing a very fine job.  Too bad more people are not  brave enough to voice their  views.  What can possibly be of  interest to the people of the Sunshine Coast about the Ecuador  political or economic system?  We, the people of the Sunshine  Coast, have enough problems of  our own right here.  With the tax burden on all of  us at this time and overspent  budget right here I think we all  agree the $6,000 that is really  tax dollars taken from the sweat  of our brows should be charged  to your personal account, and in  the future, you should only  spend within your budget like  we, the taxpayers must strive lo  do in order to keep a roof over  our heads and food on our  tables.  How many small businesses  have benn closed by being overburdened with taxes? There is  much to do with these tax dollars for the Sunshine Coasl  without blowing it away on a  trip.  Tax paid money which we  save after taxes and do without  in order to take a holiday once  in awhile. Six thousand dollars  added to your over-budget  would be well spent instead of  nine per cent raise in tax assessments.  By all means, go, whenever  you wish, but use your own  money.  There is a claim of good support for this trip. I have not  found one person who supports  it, and I see a lot of people. The  claim of support may be supported by some wishful thinking. My hat is off to Jane Reid. I  firmly believe she is the only  person on the SCRD board with  a conscience.  That's my opinion, anyway.

HWY. 101 '883-9541  by Darah Hansen  Residents in Ihe Sunshine Coasl Regional  District (SCRD) can expect to pay a lot more  in taxes this year according to the figures in  the 1995 provisional budget.  Passed by regional directors al a board  meeting Dec. 22, the revenue expected from  taxpayers is up by over $500,000 from last  year.  This potential tax hike adds lo the almost  $1 million tax increase implemented in the  previous year.  According to the budget, spending is up  in several departments and programs in the  SCRD including an estimated $200,000  increase under Ihe general government  expense account, bringing the total to $1.4  million.  Environmental health, electoral area planning, mapping and service records and build  ing inspection funds are also up significantly  with a marked increase of over $300,000 to  $1.6 million under the heading of 'fiscal and  other' services.  'Directors must pass the  final budget by  March 31 of this year'  Meanwhile, the Provincial Emergency  Program (PEP) has been allocated $93,175,  an increase of over $22,000 from last year's  budget. The increase comes after overspending in 1994 for ihe. program equalled almost  $5,000.  New expenses for taxpayers include  $100,000 for the preliminary construction of  ihe bike path in all areas of the SCRD except  Pender Harbour as well as the Oibsons  library.  Roberts Creek director Brett McGillivray  called the budget figures "preliminary al this  point." He said the budget was passed quickly after directors were faced with the year-  end deadline.  The budget was "reluctantly" passed,  McGillivray said, with the "full understanding" that come January, directors would look  at it with a "very critical eye."  McGillivray confirmed the SCRD staff  will be receiving a salary increase equivalent  to the increase in the standard of living. He  also said at least two full-time staff members  are expected to be hired this year.  Directors must pass the final budget by  March 31 of Ihis year.

After a slump in prices during the last two years, pulp is  now up again in the market, currently selling at about $700 U S  per tonne.  And "we are anticipating the  price will go higher," said mill  manager Don Stuart. That's a  big change from a year ago,  when prices were down around  $400 US per lonne.  Over the last two years, low  prices have meant regular shutdowns at Port Mellon, said Stu  art, because "we just could not  afford to produce al Ihose  prices."  Bul lhat isn't expected lo be  a problem this  year. Stuart said  there are several  factors which influence pulp prices.  Two years ago,  paper producers  weren't buying  much pulp, and  were holding their ___  inventories low  while expecting prices to drop  even further.  When worldwide demand  picked up in 1994, producers  There's a  tendency for  the price  to go up'  -Don Stuart  Then "there's a tendency for the  price to go up," said Stuart.  So far, the labour strikes at  Fletcher Challenge mills have  not been a large  part of driving  overall prices up,  he said, although  "BC is still a reasonably big producer of pulp in the  world."  Some BC print-       ers have apparently  had trouble meeting demand, however, because  of low inventories during the  strikes.  Another factor in the higher  were caught without much pulp.      prices is a current shortage of  pulp wood, which could also  drive the prices up, said Stuart.  While high pulp prices are  good news for the mills, they're  also having an effect on Ihe BC  printing business.  For some newspapers, paper  costs - which can account for 40  per cent of printing bills - are  expected to increase up to 25  per cent in the next three  months.  Opinion among market analysts is split at this point on  whether higher pulp prices will  continue or slump again in the  middle of 1995.  Most of the Port Mellon  mill's customers are in Europe  and Japan.  Coast cable on track for improved regional service  by Jane Seyd  There'll be new TV channels and higher  prices coming to most cable subscribers on  the Coast this month.  But Ken Hughes, the manager of Coast  Cable, says the local situation is not the same  as the expensive multi-channel increases  which have provoked an outcry among consumers in the Lower Mainland.  This month, Coast Cable is adding three  oew channels to its "full value.'' cable service, which now goes out to about 80 per  cent of the approximately 8600 cable subscribers on the Coast and includes channels  like Arts and Entertainment and CNN.  Full value subscribers will also see their  bills go up by $1.70 a month on Feb. 1 for  the service. But those who decide they want  to keep their sports network and MuchMusic  but skip the country videos will likely be out  of luck.  Says Hughes, "We do not have the technology to provide 'pick 'n pay'...At the  moment we can't do that."  Hughes says Coast Cable decided to add  the extra channels because of interest from  subscribers. "If we're proven wrong, we'll  change it in the future." ..,.;,<i ....... '  And while it's true consumers must call  the company to cancel if they don't want the  new full-value package, Hughes says Coast  Cable is not guilty of tactics Rogers Cable  has used in the Lower Mainland, which  include adding significant numbers of chan  nels to cable packages and charging consumers much higher fees for them.  Hughes says Coast Cable has not raised  its fees since it first started the full value  package in 1991.  Before that, a single extra channel like  TSN would cost consumers about $8 each  month.  Part of the reason prices are being raised  is work being done by the cable company on  a new fibreoptio system, which will reduce  the number of amplifiers necessary to carry  the signal and make channels more reliable,  says Hughes.  The new system will also give the company a capacity of 80 channels. Currently, the  Coast cable system can carry 35 channels.  f*tmUlt**t JLtift 1 Af  Re-opening  February 10,  1995  HAPPY  NEW YEAR!  foot of Gower PtRd  886-2188  feskioast  Cuisine  Wilson Creek  Family Restaurant  Seniors' A children's Menus  "l..-n ' Jim. bii, > ' *>iu.n.n. ��� In IL .

You  can't remember which house had  the great back yard and kitchen  that you loved and which one  you ruled out because there was  no storage. Some of the houses  you visited looked familiar  because you had seen them two  weeks ago. How can you  conserve energy and keep it all  straight?  The first step is to find a good  Realtor who knows the area well  and will show you only the  homes that meet your most  important criteria. The second  step is to invest in a small note  pad io keep a record of the  homes you visit. Note the  address, exterior style and  colour, as well as something  distinctive about the house that  will trigger your memory If a  house has real possibilities, make  a special note Jot down the  important features of each  property (positive and negative),  and share this information with  your Realtor so that you can  focus your attention on the  houses that will meet your needs  and will appeal to you.

SUSSEX Coast News, January 4, 1995  news  New Year's Eve and, in fact,  the whole holiday Season, was  quiet for CounterAtiack  roadside checkstops, RCMP  report.  Joel Johnstone photo  Coast drivers fair well in CounterAttack  by Mike O'Keeffe  The RCMP were out in force  over the holidays, but random  roadside checks resulted in only  five impaired driving charges  being laid from Gibsons to Pender Harbour.  According to a report by the  Gibsons RCMP, 123 drivers  were stopped in town between  Dec. 8 and Jan. 13. Of those  drivers, two were charged with  impaired driving, and 11 were  issued 24-hour license suspensions.  About eight officers devoted  a total of 4 hours and 45 minutes to the checks, the report  said.  During the campaign, police  also investigated one alcohol-  related collision, in which one  person was injured. The random  checks were part  of the annual ������  Christmas CounterAtiack Road-  check Campaign.  Gibsons corporal Robin Blair  said the program  aims to "reduce the  number of impaired drivers and _____  ultimately to  reduce the number of accidents  as a result."  Though he is pleased with  the low number of charges,  'I guess people  are starting  to get the  message'  ���Bruce Haynes  been different, had the police  had more time to check vehicles. He said police could check  only 123 of  ������ "about one-million vehicles"  that passed  through Gibsons  during the campaign.  "If we had 15  police officers  out 24 hour a  _____       day, the statistics  would be different," said Blair.  "It depends on what kind of  resources are dedicated to it."  Of the 1,112 drivers stopped  Blair said the results might have     by the Sechelt detachment, three  were charged with impaired .  driving, six were given 24-hour  suspensions, and 24 received  written warnings.  The roadside checks also  resulted in 10 traffic charges,  said corporal Bruce Haynes in  an interview.  During the campaign, Sechelt  officers devoted 38 hours to  roadside checks from Roberts  Creek to Pender Harbour, said  Hanes.  Although he has not compared the figures with those of  previous years, Haynes said he  believes the number of impaired  drivers is falling.  "I guess people are starting  to get the message," he said.  School board hopefuls set for by-election  The nominations are closed and four candidates have tossed their hats in the ring to  replace school trustee David Scott, who  resigned from the Sunshine Coast School  Board this fall.  A fifth application made by Mariette  Berinstein was withdrawn during the Christmas holidays.  ���''-"''This is a first run for all candidates except  Arnet Tuffs who was defeated by 130 votes in  1993.  The by-election will be held Jan. 21 at  Sechelt's Municipal Hall from 8 am to 8 pm.  Advance polls will be held Jan. 11 and Jan.  13.  Here are the candidates and the issues they  hope to tackle:  Joyce Kolibas, 68, has been a leader with  the Girl Guide movement for 24 years.  "One of my main aims is to slow things  down. The impression I get is that everybody  thinks change is best. But you don't reinvent  the wheel that is still working...and where are  we going to get the money?...Also, there is a  large problem in Vancouver right now of people wanting ESL (English as a Second Language) and I don't see how we can bring  every language instruction into the  schools....! think, if people from other coun  tries want to keep up their language, they  should do it on their own time. But, we don't  have that problem here on the coast....I'd like  to see why students at the end of the line think  they're not getting what they thought they  should have gotten from the school system....We should just slow .ip a bit and take  the time to smell the roses, not rush in and  change things when, stoittfetiitits, they don't  need changing."  Lori Dixon, 43, was a teacher at Sechelt's  Mom-Ay-Mon Preschool for 21 yean.  "I think of this more along the lines of  community service....Right now, everything  is going through change. It's an interesting  time and I'd like to be in there adding my perspective on things....! would like to attend as  many PAC (Parents Advisory Committee)  meetings as possible to hear from the parents.  I think that's probably why the year 2000  prOgram didn't take off as well as it could  have���the powers that be didn't take the time  to talk to the people directly affected....But  change is the biggest issue....There has been  major social change in my 21 year career.  When I first started, children were from  nuclear families...now, single parent families  and two parent-working families are the  norm....There has to be change to all of the  social institutions that serve the general public...The system was designed for a society  that doesn't exist anymore, a society that has  radically changed."  Arnet Tuffs, 64, was a teacher in elementary and secondary schools around BC for 15  years.  "First, there must be equitable funding for  all of the district's library learning resource  centres....Some schools receive more money  for resources and library services than others....Another issue is the current board's  book banning policy. To me, this is unacceptable....Doesn't it seem a bit strange to you  that one school has restricted a book while  kids at other schools are free to read  it?...Theoretically, it's possible we could  have an 18-year-old prime minister....but  they will not have been allowed to read this  book....The school trustees have to have a  greater two-way open communication with  the people who do the work���the  teachers....I'd like to see suggestion boxes in  each school in the staff room....If elected, I  will make it my business to have regular town  hall meetings to discuss issues of education  with the taxpayers and the parents."

For three years, Barney Johnson has delivered  the Province newspaper in upper Gibsons, using a  custom-built electric scooter. Johnson suffers from  spinal cancer and relies on his paper route for exercise as well as income.  He learned recently that his employer, Pacific  Press Limited, plans to restructure local routes and  possibly force him and several students out of work.  Last monlh, Johnson said his job was in jeopardy  because his disability limits the number of papers he  can carry as well as the distance he can travel.  However, he now believes he will keep his job  when the new deal takes effect later this month. In  the meantime, he said, he is enjoying a flood of support from neighbours and the general public.  Al Ostrosky is one of Johnson's loyal customers.  When he heard of his friend's plight, he started a  petition, urging Pacific Press to "reconsider" its  decision and keep Johnson on the route.  In just three weeks, the petition, at a gas station  on Highway 101, collected about 450 signatures,  said Ostrosky in an interview. He said he removed  the petition last week but will keep the names in  case Johnson loses his job. '.,  Ostrosky said peopled lined up to sign the petition because they could easily sympathize with  Johnson's predicament.  "Barney is very well known around here," said  Ostrosky. "Anyone who knows him would support,  him right away. They can see he's a hard-working  guy, trying to earn an honest living and doing a ,  good job of it." i  However, Johnson said he was surprised by the ,  number of signatures, many of which came from  people living outside the community.  "Quite frankly, I was amazed by it," said John-  son. "I knew 1 had a certain amount of support out  there, but I had no idea how much support I had."  Johnson said he has donated about half his newspaper earnings so far to the Kiwanis Gardens project, which he designed and is in the process of  building. His plan is to recreate the Kiwanis Club  logo using about 30,000 tulip and daffodil bulbs. He  said it will take about three more years and $15,000  lo complete.  Scouts hoping to get into jam(boree)  by Mike O'Keeffe  Christmas is over, but the  Gibsons Boy Scbtttsifehapihg  the spirit of giving will continue  into the new year.  The First Sunshine Coast  Ventures and Scouts hope to  send a Venturer and a leader to  the 18th World Jamboree in  Holland in August. The rest of  the troop and their leaders also  plan to attend the provincial  jamboree in Prince George in  July. The cost of those trips will  exceed $15,000, according to  fundraising coordinator Birgit  Woolmer.  The troop has already raised  much of the funds, but scout  leader Ernie Barnum said they  will step up fundraising efforts  this month in order to meet their  goal. The scouts will benefit  from the third annual Christmas  Tfee drop off at tlfttMlbsons  ���TarttflBai1'1'"11!"' tf>  In exchange for donations,  the plaza is accepting trees,  which will be chipped into  mulch and used by local landscapes. Each year, the plaza  gives proceeds to a local charity,  said promotions coordinator  Beverly Tanchak. She said she  expects to raise about $300 this  year,  Trees may be left on the lot,  in front of the IGA Plus store,  where a box has been set out for  donations.  According to Barnum, the  Scouts could raise an additional  $1,000 through their annual bottle drive on Saturday, Jan. 7. He  said scouts and venturers will go  door to door in Gibsons on that  day, collecting returnable bottles.  ���'"A1 hit of people let WH Hot-"  ties pile up in a closet all year  and are glad to have someone  come and take them away," he  said.  Scouts will try to reach every  household in town, said Barnum, bul anyone who will be  away from home that day can  call him at 886-9482 to arrange  pickup. In addition, returnable  bottles can be dropped off at a  depot at unit 120 in the Gibsons  Park Plaza.  Barnum said proceeds from  Christmas-tree sales will also go  toward the jamborees. The  scouts and venturers did a brisk  business this Christmas, selling  about 450 locally-grown trees,  he said.

United Church Thrift Shop, 1-3 pm,  church basement, lane off Trueman  Road  george In gibsons  by George Cooper  A Sechelt couple spent five  days backpacking last September  in Cape Scott Provincial Park in  Ihe northern end of Vancouver  Island - something they had been  wanting to do for a long time.  "Rained only at night a couple  of times," Ron Allison said. But  Shirley added, "A gale brought  the rain in a wild downpour Ihe  night we camped at Nels Bight.''  AK Charters had brought  them out of Port Hardy through  Ooletes Channel to land Ihem at  Fisherman's Bay in Nissen  Bight. Later they would be  picked up at the San Josef Bay  parking lot near the southern end  of the park and returned by van  to Port Hardy.  "From our camp al Nels Bight  we did a day hike to Cape Scott.  Saw stretches of beautiful beach  along the way. Simply beautiful.  We visited Cape Scott lighthouse  which was built in 1960 The two  families there had us sign a petition to keep the lighthouse  manned. There were 265 steps  down to the lighthouse from the  trail and 265 back. The hike to  Eric Lake was on a muddy trail  from a recenl rain. Pretty rugged  going with windfalls of huge  trees frequently blocking the  trail. Tough going with 40-pound  packs.  "We hiked aboul the head of  San Josef Bay while awaiting the  van to come from Port Hardy.  Not much to mark the early settlements but ruined remains of  houses and a few farm implements still standing in former  meadows. Even the planked road  built by the army for its radar station in WWII at Guise Bay is  marked only by rotting timber  here and there. The station buildings were long since ransacked.  "Although we had taken care  to chlorinate all our drinking  water as we were warned to do, I  still got infected with a parasite.  Didn't give the chlorine pills  enough time to work in our water  container. Took a long time to  recover from that," Ron said.  Parasite infections are not  restricted to wilderness parks by  the way, for recent news reports  tell of concerns with regional  water supplies. Greater Vancouver for instance.  If you plan a hiking adventure  in Cape Scott park, read the Cape  Scott Story by Lester Peterson, a  well-liked teacher at Elphinstone  Secondary some years ago.  Peterson, who spent his childhood years there, recounts the  story of past settlements - Native,  Danish in 1897, and then a  mixed multicultural bag in 1910.  The park was established in  1973 stimulated by the trail  clearing project in the centennial  year of 1971 by Station Holberg  personnel. Colonel J.D. Dickson  of Gibsons who was then the  commanding officer at Holberg  wrote a chapter entitled RCAF  Station Holberg for Peterson's  book.  Information and maps on  Cape Scott Park can be obtained  through the provincial agent in  Sechelt or local information centres.

Joel Johnstone pholo  mberts creek  by Katharine Trueman  885-2282  1 It hardly seems possible that  1994 has come and gone!  Reflecting over the past months,  one begins to realize that the past  year has been quite productive  for the nation of Roberts Creek.  Blessed with mild weather we  saw the completion of the additional storage area for the new  General Store. The Library and  Post Office were completely  painted.  Who could forget the planning  and anticipation for the Hall's  60th birthday party. Sarah Norris  placed second in the national  YTV competition and went on to  compete in the Youth Talent  Search held at the PNE.  Carl Poulsen received a gold  medal (first place) for the long  jump at the BC Elementary Track  and Field Championships. Joe  Zornes won round five of the  CM A superseries in Merrill on  the provincial moto-cross motorcycle racing circuit held in the  valley.  The Farmers Market was held  every Sunday iiiuring the summer.  Many celebrities performed in the  Creek including Rick Tippe,  Alpha Ya Ya Diallo, Butler in the  Hey, Bobby Watt, Bob Carpenter, Rod Crawford, Caitlin Hicks,  The Blue Shadows, The Driftwood Players and too many other  wonderful entertainers to men-  lion. The elementary school was  finally completed and the work  began on the outside grounds.  The fire department celebrated  with a 25-year reunion. Probably  the biggest achievement was the  removal of those dreaded tanks.  Of course there has been continued land clearing, and building. The SCRD also purchased  the land directly behind the Hall  for future. Another fantastic  Earth Day Celebration and Creek  Daze was also held. Recently, the  4th annual Christmas traditional  dinner was enjoyed by all who  attended. And the most recent  acquisition to the Creek have  been bus stop signs. Well, what's  in store for 1995?  Roberts Creek Auxiliary  The Roberts Creek Hospital  Auxiliary Branch will hold a luncheon on Monday, Jan. 9. The  event begins at 11 am at the  Wharf Restaurant in Davis Bay.  Everyone is invited lo attend.  School is Back  Please remember that our  youth resume classes this week,  so exercise caution when driving.  New Hours  The General Store is now back  to normal hours. They are open  everyday from 8 am until 9 pm.  The Library will open offering  new hours on both Tuesday and  Thursday. They will be open  from 2 pm until 8 pm both days.  Saturday they will remain open  between 10 and 2 pm.  Thanks  A special thanks to all contributors and readers of the Roberts  Creek community column. I certainly have appreciated your time  and interest. I will be taking news  items until Jan. 15, so please give  me a call. Thank you.  LOSE UPTOIO LBS 1  in ����� (lays  With Supplemental Diet Plan. Try il!!!  It works!! Using all nalural ingredients.

And while many of the birds  recovered and have been set  free, Dickeson said some of the  animals are just in too bad a  shape when they come to the  centre.  For instance, she said, an  autopsy determined the snow  goose died of lead poisoning  likely after mistaking discarded  rifle shells, commonly used in  duck hunting, for food.  Dickeson said she is licensed  to care for wild birds only but  has obtained a special permit to  take in other forms of wildlife  when needed.  Earlier in the year, Sechelt  RCMP brought an injured deer  to the rehabilitation centre after  it was hit by a car. The deer was  later euthanized.  Currently Dickeson is caring  for two birds, a small buffle-  head duck and a Greater Canadian goose, both of which she  hopes to release in the new  year.  The duck is blind in one eye  and is learning to preen itself  while the goose is recovering '  from a gunshot to its wing.  Dickeson said both are otherwise healthy and it's "just a  matter of lime" before they're  back out in the wild.

Fast food restaurants arc changing. 1 swear  that they're getting bigger and more plentiful.  They are also getting on the trend-wagon in  Irying to offer some low fat, healthy choices.  Why aren't there many low-fat menu  choices? Consumers say they want more low-  fat loods, but still choose the menu selections  highest in fat, .salt, and sugar.  That is, unless the path is beaten to a sushi  bar. I have hud the joyous experience, several  hallmoon happenings  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  A happy new year to one and  all. In our house in Scotland,  New Year was a very special  occasion, and as we welcomed in  the year and said goodbye to the  old one, our father always made  the same remark: "I wonder if  we will all be together Ihis time  next year." With all of us, this is  worth thinking about. People  move away or die and the continuity gets broken along Ihe way.  Afler this month, the continuity  of the Coast News will have  ceased, all the staff and crew  will, for reasons under which  they have no control, no longer  be a team of great people who  have served their communily  well. I would just like to wish  them all well in the new year.  The next meeting of the Halfmoon Bay Hospital Auxiliary  will be on Monday, Jan. 9 at  Welcome Beach Hall, 10 am.  Members old and new will be  welcome.  The Welcome Beach Community Association's list of coming events will have reached  ��� members by now, but for those  of you who have not yet joined,  here are some of the highlights.  There will be an Italian dinner  and dance on Jan. 21 with local  music. This is a fundraiser for  the recently formed bocci ball  tournaments. Games are on  Mondays and Fridays at 7:30.  For tickets for the Italian night  call Carlo al 885-7642, Sandy at  885-2760 or Franz at 885-4590.  If you would like to join the  Welcome Beach Community  Association, cost is S3 per person, payable to Joyce McMahon,  Box 19 Southwood Site, Halfmoon Bay. Annual dues are  payable now.  Over the holidays it was nice  to have a visit from Michael and  Denise Sherman, former Coast  Newsies who now live al Watson  Lake in the Yukon. It was good  to renew old friendships and  reminisce about the good old  days. They did not have time to  visit with all their friends but  wished to pass on new year  greetings.  So, from the Forrester household, "A guid New Year tae ane  and all, and mony may ye see,  and during a' the year tae come,  o happy may ye be."  times in Ihe lasl few months of watching  sushi chefs in action.  Sushi i.s a cuisine whose time has come.  The Japanese are generally healthier than  North Americans when they eat traditional  Japanese food. They have considerably less  heart disease than us.  As well, few Japanese are fat. So, from a  weight watchers point of view, sushi is  divine. For new sushi eaters, a delicious introduction is maklzushi, This snack or meal,  when cul. looks kind of like pinwheels. They  are eaten with Japanese soy sauce, pickled  sliced ginger and wasabi or green horseradish.  To make your own, all you need is a bamboo rolling mat, sushi (sticky) rice, nori seaweed, and whatever ingredients you want to  put inside - sliced cucumber, green onion,  avocado, shrimp, pickled vegetables.  Dania Matialion is the Communily Nutritionist ami converted sushi fan from the Coast  Garibaldi Health Unit.  f~ REWARD   ~|  ClllWililll  is giving a reward of $20 for the return of EACH live  blasting cap stolen from TRI-SIL MINERALS LTD.  v IFYOU HAVE ANYINFORMATION ��  X CALL 886-TIPS IMMEDIATELY /  RECYCLE THIS NEWSPAPER  New  bulletin  service  planned  Another operation on the  Sunshine Coast is sprinting onto  the information highway.  Don Seykens, a computer  enthusiast in Gibsons, is starting  up a new electronic bulletin  board on the Coast.  That will add to several other  bulletin boards already in existence locally where computer  browsers can dial up and find  out about the latest gossip, news  and events. Seykens says one  feature of his new bulletin board  is that it will be geared lo Macintosh computer-users, while  most are directed to IBM-compatible machines.  That means software available for downloading from the  system will run on Macintosh  computers, although any computer user can dial up messages  from the board at 886-8453.  Seykens says he's hoping to  feature crimestoppers, listings  from the employment centre and  a "teen corner" on his bulletin  board.  Like most bulletin boards on  the Coast, the new addition will  be free to those who want to use  it. Several local services also  allow computer users to hook up  to Internet, bul Seykens says his  will be strictly for local messages.  -i��*.
