Since his career-threatening  collision with a vehicle on the  two-lane stretch of highway  between Sechelt and  Gibsons in November 1992, Wells has        been trying to avoid  that path toward  rehabilitation.  Instead, he's  opted for other, less-  travelled roads  around the Coast as  a way of strengthen-       ing a crushed leg  that forced him to pass up the  1993 cycling season and nationals. "I absolutely don't ride at  night anymore," said the dimuni-  tive cyclist, ranked by many residents as the top cyclist on the  Coast before his crash. "I'm  more paranoid now."  The accident, which resulted  in charges being laid against the  driver and extended negotiations  between an assortment of  lawyers for both sides, occurred  one month after Wells placed  second in the World Mountain  Bike competition.  He underwent reconstructive  surgery at Lions Gate Hospital to  repair damage to his crushed leg,  currently held together with a  metal plate and an assortment of  screws.  Despite the injury, Wells is  back in high gear and putting 11  hours a week into rebuilding his  racing career. Although he would  like to cowpet* i9-��tryj��ee  held Muring the 1994 season, lie  'I'm more  paranoid now'  Cymbol Wells  matic attitude about his fortunes.  "(The accident) made me  miss a race season and when you  miss a whole year, you are not  sure what's going to happen  when you get back," he said.  If anything, Wells should be  ready for the Canada Cup series  which starts in June.  "That's what I'm  really hoping to get  ������    up to."  Wells undergoes  physiotherapy at  least three times a  week, a treatment  which includes electric shock and inter-  differential therapy  ������ to his leg. If the  treatment successfully adds strength to his leg, he  could partake in a local racing  event as soon as March.  "It's going to take a while. I  don't know about full  strength...there's so much stuff  stuck down there," Wells said of  his healing tibia.  He admitted it was difficult to  keep in shape following the accident. And a slow recovery process dashed his hopes of returning to the road in time for the  1993 season.  He also acknowledged that  the pressure to maintain his ranking on the Coast constantly  looms overhead, but if desire and  hunger are worth anything on the  circuit, Wells is definitely on the  right track to re-establishing his  pre-eminent ranking.  "It's not the end of the world,  but it might make me take another path," he said, referring to the  crash. 4  ,."1. sawUhWW \Tmm^**m%A*.  can't let too many more years  is maintaining a somewhat prig-     slip by."  Bike paths up for  community debate  WHALES:  Dr. Spong  speaks out for  Corky's sake 15  Tuning up  with Creek  musician  Grant Olsen  The future of bike paths on  Ihe Sunshine Coast will be  debated next week by residents  and government officials.  Path proponent Gordon Clayton has organized a meeting for  7 pm Jan. 25 at the Sunshine  Coast Regional District offices  in Sechelt.  Clayton is spearheading the  group to "bring various societies, clubs and groups together  wilh elected officials and outdoor (recreation) members" to  begin planning for a proper path  between Gibsons and Sechelt.  "This is an informal gel-  together to establish a more formal base," he said.  The meeling follows recent  demands by residents for more  suitable paths in Sechell. Lasl  November, an SCRD question  relating lo bike paths that was  included in the Sechelt munici  pal election referendum ques-  tionaire resulted in voters lending complete support to the idea.  To date, little has been done  by the SCRD, District of Sechell  or Town of Gibsons in the  establishment of suitable paths.  The District of Sechelt has  been criticized for not bothering  to add any suitable paths lo  roads undergoing reconstruction. A loose-gravel path was  added to the new portion of Porpoise Bay Road but some residents believe that is not the type  of path warranted for the area.  Chuck Tkachuk, a member of  Ihe Halfmoon Bay recreation  committee, has been developing  plans for a path between Gibsons and Sechelt since moving  to the Coasl two years ago.  His plan is to run a path  between the two towns on lands  situated underneath hydro lines.  Cymbol Wells Is back on track and nearlng the end of a long year of recovery from hit and run  injuries. Joel Johnstone photo  Forest ministry audit on fisheries uses discouraging language  by Darah Hansen  The impaci of streamside  logging practices on fisheries  habitats along the B.C. coast  does nol make a pretty picture.  At least that is the concensus  of an audit publicly released last  week by the Ministry of Forests.  The audit was completed by  Derek Tripp of Tripp Biological  Consultants.  In it, Tripp examined 79  potential or actual logging sites  (cutblocks) in five coastal  regions, including the Sunshine  Coast, for compliance wilh the  1988 provincial guidelines  enacted to protect fish-bearing  streams near logging operations.  "I've looked at a lot of cut-  blocks...but I never felt it was  that bad until I did some measuring," Tripp said in an interview last week.  The data "surprised (me)."  Tripp noted that Ihe results of  the recent study are similar to  Ihe findings of a 1992 environ  mental audit he conducted on  Vancouver Island where logging  companies failed an examination of 21 cutblocks.  Compared with the data of  the present audit, Tripp said,  "There (is) no evidence that  compliance with the guidelines  has improved or declined from  1988 to 1992."  Tripp said that overall compliance with the fish-forestry  guidelines compared with Vancouver Island was only slightly  better in three of the forest  regions audited, the Sunshine  Coast among them. The districts  of Kalum and North Coast  faired poorly in comparison.  Of the different logging companies audited, Interfor received  Ihe worst grade for overall compliance with Ihe guidelines in all  five districts.  Specific to the Sunshine  Coast, where Interfor is the  major forest licensee, Tripp said  the study was inconclusive in  showing the forest company as  any worse of an offender than  others audited.  "Nobody gets fingered," he  said.  7 never felt it was  that bad until I did  some measuring'  ���Derek Tripp  Compliance wilh site-specific  prescriptions was generally better than overall compliance,  Tripp said.  In Ihis area, MacMillan  Bloedel was found to demonstrate the best compliance, with  Interfor and the forest service's  Small Business Foresl Enterprise Program (SBFEP) fairing  Ihe worst.  "In the absence of specific  recommendations, compliance  with the more general (guidelines) on streams was much  lower," Ihe report reads. On  average, compliance reached  only 41.7 per cenl where pre-  logging conditions could be  determined.  Compliance was strongly  related to hill slope, Tripp said,  adding the dala indicated that  for every 10-per-cenl increase in  slope there is a five-per-cent  decline in overall compliance.  However, "some of the most  significant transgressions on  streams had nothing lo do with  slope," writes Tripp.  Other problems with compliance arose from erosion of road  surfaces and encroachment on  streams al stream crossings;  misidentification of streams by  class; improper strategies for  streamside logging; excessive or  improper cleanup; and over-harvesting in streamside management zones.  Tripp said the Sunshine  Coast along with the districts of  Squamish and the North Coast  were unique in that they had  fewer streams with recognized  fisheries habitats.  Because of this, some people  have claimed the audit to be  "somewhat biased towards troubled areas."  Tripp added that some  streams included in these districts were "literally hammered"  but no audit was performed  because there were no fisheries  concerns.  In proportion to other areas,  the report indicates half to two  thirds of stream reaches with  fisheries concerns (that were)  inspected on the Sunshine Coast  showed major or moderate  impaci of some type.  Of streams considered most  valuable to fisheries on the  Coast, 20 per cent of Ihose audited were affected.  turn to page 2 Coast News, January 24, 1994  news  No charges likely to stem from audit  Jr  V  DR.

"Stream area affected  generally increased with stream  class(ification)," Tripp concluded.  Tripp further noted that larger  streams were less affected by  logging than smaller streams,  partially the result of protective  streamside management zones as  well as the "conservative nature  of methods used to estimate  impacts."  "Dilution is the solution," he  said. If damage is found, companies are required to rehabilitate  the streams where possible.  No charges are likely lo be  laid under the Fisheries Act  against companies failing the  audit, mainly because it's hard to  prove specific problems resulted  from practices on particular cut-  blocks, Tripp said.

Vaughan  Municipal Clerk  by Darah Hansen  A recent audit conducted for  the foresl district has labelled  International Forest Products  (Interfor) as the worst offender  of the provincial fish/forestry  guidelines.  Audited in combination with  several other forest companies in  five districts across the coast,  including the Sunshine Coast,  Interfor ranked last, with just  50.6 per cent in overall compliance with the 1988 guidelines  enacted to protect important fisheries streams from nearby logging operations.  MacMillan Bloedel ranked  the highest in the audit, with  80.2 per cenl overall compliance.  Interfor is the largest forest  licensee on the Sunshine Coast.  Mike Bell, Sunshine Coast  district manager for Interfor, said  the company is currently spending "hundreds of thousands of  dollars" to clean up any damage  incurred by streamside logging  practices on the Coast.  He admits "there is room for  improvement." Interfor failed  two of three blocks audited over  the 1992/93 season on the Coast.  The cutblock on Wilson  Creek received passing marks  while two others, Hunaechin and  Wellington Creeks, failed.  The two blocks were owned  and logged by Fletcher Challenge prior to the audit. Interfor  took over several of the company's forest licenses across the  coast in January, 1992.  Bell said the Fletcher Challenge buy-out could have contributed to the poor marks Interfor received in the audit.  Under the purchasing agreement, Interfor will be in charge  of all clean-up necessary and the  bill will be forwarded to Fletcher  Challenge. Bell said Interfor  spent $2.4 million in clean-up  projects last year.  District forest manager Greg  Hemphill called the results of Ihe  audit "somewhat old news."  He said work is being done  by all companies to clean up  their act regarding compliance  with fish/forestry guidelines.  Overall, the Sunshine Coast  did as well any other district  under the audit, Hemphill said.  "I temper that with the comment we've got a lot of work to  do."  Highways opposes community highway signs  by Darah Hansen  The provincial Ministry of Highways has  refused to put up road signs marking all the  Sunshine Coast Communities ��� and the  regional district is really angry about it.  i Jim Curn��y�� director for Elphinstone..  called the response from Highways "ignorant." adding that it proved the ministry's lack"  of understanding of both the nature of Coast  communities and their history.  Discussion regarding Highways' negative  response to placing signs indicating regional  communities such as Elphinstone, Egmont  and West Howe Sound was underway at the  regional district regular board meeting, Jan.  13-  According to a letter signed by Highways'  traffic technician Evelyn Skelion, the proposal  was refused because "thete* areas are simply a  collection *��jesid  Skeltptj^3-1 -<-'-*- ����  permit i  Excess signs "clutter" the roadside and  "detract from other important information  provided to motorists driving provincial highways," Skelion said.  "This letter is so outrageous it is to be  inn fl  humorous," said Gurney. "I can't Ihink of  anything more important as a motorist than to  know where I am."

Clayton's Recycling  Depot  Please note that the Recycling Depot is  now accepting BROWN ANO CLEAR  ���a  Mayor's  & Hotline  885-5360  The town of Gibsons is going  to loan the Sunshine Coast  Regional District the money to  pay for its share of the Gibsons  Swimming Pool renovations.  Should the SCRD agree, it  will pay back to Gibsons  approximately $200,000 with  interest; the funds will come  from the town's General Revenue Fund Surplus.  In his report to council town  administrator Dan Legg  explained that $243,923 remains  to be financed by Gibsons and  the SCRD for the final renovations to the pool, closed since  June 1992.  "The Regional District has  requested Gibsons to find a  method to borrow or otherwise  raise this amount and the  Regional District will undertake  lo pay their share of Ihe principal amount, plus interest, for up  to a five-year term," Legg  wrote.  Legg also explained that the  $200,000 loan comes about as  the SCRD must pay 80 per cent  of the $243,925 bill and Gibsons must take care of 20 per  cent.  Legg offered council three  alternatives.  The first was a long-term  debt but because a referendum  would be required, this option  was shelved.  The second was a short-term  capital borrowing alternative but  because the town has a limit of  $160,000 on short-term borrowing, that option was also cast  aside.  The third option, Legg said,  was to take the money from the  General Revenue Fund Surplus,  hovering at about $330,000.  "Gibsons could utilize  $200,000 of the surplus to  finance the Regional District's  portion of the required funds  Valerie McGrath sneaks a peak at twelve submitted proposals to  brighten up the walls of the Gibsons swimming pool.  Joel Johnstone pholo  and enter inlo an agreement to  be repaid over a period of up to  five years. This alternative  requires including the appropriation of surplus in the annual  budget bylaw and execution of  an agreement between Gibsons  and the Regional District," Legg  wrote.  Councillor Ted Hume asked  why the financing couldn't be  done over a one-year period  instead of five.  "I believe the Regional District wants to spread it out over  five years," replied mayor Eric  Small, adding they "don't want  lo bite the bullet."  "It seems to be a strange way  of operating," Hume said.  "They are paying interest on  it," Small replied.  Legg said that if SCRD  agrees lo this proposal, Gibsons  would require Ihe SCRD to pass  a "resolution acknowledging the  agreement and authorizing Ihe  execution of a document outlining the terms of the conditions  of the loan."  ���- - ' -��� " ' :  "    "p"'  mmmmm  MM Coast News, January 24,1994  news  Mermaid reconstruction raises ire  by Don Anderson  A group of Sechelt residents is irate over  work being done to reconstruct a portion of  Mermaid Street.  About 23 residents have expressed their  anger with the previous council's decision to  spend more than $275,000 to install curbs,  gutters, and a sidewalk and to repave the road  lo accommodate two lanes of traffic.  Although residents wanted to see the road  repaved, they were not pleased to awake one  morning to find Hussey Contracting Ltd. tearing up the road without their consent or input.  "We became aware of it after it was too  late to do something about it," said Marjorie  Gooding of 5769 Mermaid St.  Like most residents of that streel, Gooding  is concerned that the reconstruction of the  road will have a significant impact on the  neighborhood. She believes the road will  become a magnet for commercial traffic,  thereby increasing noise and diminishing  pedestrian safety.  Gooding look particular aim at the installation of a sidewalk.  "It seems so senseless to put in a sidewalk  when nobody wants it," she said. "The thing  is the taxpayer has to pay for this and it's  something that nobody wanted. I think it is a  tremendous waste of public funds."  Roughly 15 disgruntled residents appeared  before Sechelt council at the Jan. 19 meeting  to express their displeasure with the road  work.  '/ think it is a tremendous  waste of public funds'  ���Marjorie Gooding  Pat Chamberlin, author of the petition  against the road work, attacked the previous  council in a later interview for not advising  residents of Ihe planned reconstruction.  "This is the way things have been done and  it's insidious," she said.  She hopes the current council will listen to  their concerns and develop a solution agreeable to residents. Although Chamberlin  approves of the repaying, she feels the rest of  the work is unwarranted.  Public Works manager John Wild said the  road work had been requested by home owners and is being completed to the District of  Sechelt's policy for road construction and  reconstruction.  "We are fixing the road to our standard  policy ��� the Urban Local Road Standards."  Wild said it is "not the policy" of the District of Sechelt to go out of its way to enlist  the assistance of residents in the design of  roads, particularly the reconstruction of roads.  However, the municipality welcomes  input. Wild also downplayed concerns that the  road will be used for parking from commercial traffic. The road that is being constructed  will be eight metres wide over two lanes. Any  suggestion that Ihe construction of a parking  lane is part of the plans is wrong, he said.  If the district were to add a separate parking lane, the entire road would have to be 11  metres wide. "I Ihink if we have any problems  (with parking) after construction we can solve  them with signage," Wild said.  Mayor Earl Basse said council would  review the matter, but ihere is little that can be  done to deal with work currently being done  on Mermaid Streel.

Dog killed near Gibsons goat mauling site  by Ian Cobb  In the space of three days, a  little dog was killed, another  was beaten up and two goats  were mauled by a marauding  canine (or canines) in the Pratt-  Fitchett Roads area of Gibsons.  And at leasl one local resident is ready to pull the trigger  on any mutt or purebrecd that  trots onto her property.  On Jan. 17, Jack Hewish of  Fitchell Road put his 15-year-  old Cocker Spaniel-Corgi cross,  Sam, outside "to do his business," only to find that the old  dog had scampered off, apparently in search of female canine  companionship.  Hewish said he started to  worry when the normally punctual Sam didn't return after a  while. At 4:30 p.m. some neighbours phoned him to come down  and identify his dog ��� found  dead in a nearby field.  "It appears a couple of chaps  who work for Renco (Concrete  Ltd. at the end of Fitchett Rd.)  thought he had been shot,"  Hewish said, because there was'  a hole In the golden-coloured  dog's chest.  Unconvinced, Hewish took  his pel to the Gibsons Animal  Hospital and a vet there confirmed "he had been beaten up  by a big dog."  At 2 a.m. Jan. 18, two pel  goals owned by Val Anderson  of Pratt Road, situated close to  Fitchett, were attacked after several dogs hopped the fence of a  small paddock containing the  goats.  Val Anderson and George Bennett try to place Tweety Into a sling  to take some weight off the Goats injured hind legs. Ian Cobb photo  Both animals received nasty  injuries to their hind quarters,  back legs, tails and undersides.  The incident incited Anderson to declare that she will shoot  "any and every stray dog" that  roams onto her property from  now on.  Hewish told the Const News  he also heard about a local bull  dog that had been beaten up in  the Fitchett/Pratt area on Jan.  19.  Municipal dog control officer  Stan Jones said instances where  one dog is killed by another in a  fight are rare.  "This is the first dog I can  remember being killed in a dogfight," he said, noting he's been  on the beat for five years.  The problem of dogs roaming  at large isn't one that is out of  control, he said, but he knows of  a Rottweiller and a Boxer that  are reported to regularly patrol  Pratt Road.  "I don't know if they (any  dogs) are setting up a regular  trap line (regular route travelled)  i   or pot," Jones said.  In the meantime, he said he's  keeping his eyes open and Jack  Hewish is left to mourn a longtime companion ��� still moving  toward the door whenever he  hears a noise, a habit developed  over a 15-year relationship.

Wildlife abundant in Tetrahedron, report reveals  by Ian Cobb  Looking at the forest beyond  the trees was the role of the  Tetrahedron Local Resource Use  Plan's fish and wildlife subcommittee.  While most sub-committees  busied themselves wilh considering how Ihe proposed salvation of  the Tetrahedron high country  from the loggers' saws would  benefit Ihe downstream communities using the water generated  there, or how people could effectively recreate or use the old-  growth hemlock zone forest lo  their benefit, the fish and wildlife  subcommittee diligently went  about forming the first actual  wildlife survey in the area.  And the findings by hired  Ministry of Environment biologist Tom Plath, contained in a  partial survey, point lo the area as  being not jusl one of the two  remaining "contiguous old-  growth mountain hemlock forests  left on the Sechelt Peninsula  (with Ihe Caren Range being Ihe  second)," bul also as home to 102  vertebrate species (mammals).  In addition, Plath noted that  "the presence of marbled mur-  relets, a threatened/vulnerable  species, and a very high percentage (37 per cent) of other bird  species either dependent on old-  growth attributes and/or forests,  shows the significance of the  forested area."  When the sub-committee started its arduous task four years ago,  there was no information detailing whal wildlife values Ihe  Tetrahedron had lo offer, said  sub-commiltee chair Dan  Bouman of the Tetrahedron  Alliance.  In fact, at Ihe start of the  LRUP process, the Ministry of  Forests didn't recognize any  wildlife concerns, nor did the  licensee (International Forest  Products Ltd.), Bouman said.  So "there were a _____  few central questions" the group  had to have answered before submitting its final  report, he said.  The first was:  "Is Ihere an unusual  level of diversity in  the Tel���or not?"  The other questions  were: "What are the "~~T  old-growth dependent species.  Are any of these species rare,  threatened or endangered? Are  any measures necessary to protect  the existing diversity?"  Plath was hired to provide a  wildlife inventory of the area and  though it wasn't a complete survey (conducted from June to  August I992) because of a shortage of funds, Plath's recommendations clearly outline the Tetrahedron as an area rich with  wildlife ��� a lot of it dependent  on Ihe unique hemlock ecosystem. "Preservation/retention of  the entire forest base of the study  area is essential to maintain current wildlife populations and  diversity," Plath wrote in his recommendations.  "Large-scale harvesting has  diminished wildlife values outside the study area and further  fragmentation of the old-growth  forest lessens the ability of the  area to maintain viable populations of old-growth-dependent or  attribute-dependent species. Fragmentation leads to greater nest  predation and parasitism, edge  '.large-scale  harvesting has  diminished  wildlife values  outside the  study area'  -Tom Plalh  creep, microclimatic changes and  competition between interior and  edge species which may lead to  secondary extinctions caused by i  the elimination of keystone  ___ species," Plath  wrote.  In addition to Ihe  area being a marbled  murrelel nesting  ground, it is also the  southern-most extension of the rock  ptarmigan and is  home to 27 specific  bird species dependent or attribute-  -������ dependent on old  growth forests.  "That has brought some noteworthy ornothologists inlo the  area," Bouman said of the ptarmigan sitings.  Two aspects not explored in  Plath's report but pointed oul in  the sub-committee reporl,  Bouman said, are bat inventories  or the affects on migratory  species, such as raptors (birds of  prey). "We don't have much hard  data at all," Bouman said. Bats  are known to be old-growth-  dependent and the Tetrahedron  can be a virtual spotter's heaven  for raptors. "If you're on the right  peak at the right time, you can  see a large number ��� up to hundreds in a day."  Another concern the sub-committee expresses is how wildlife  corridors are affected in and out  of the study area ��� with much of  the surrounding countryside  logged or earmarked for logging.  "The licensees may see it as  'they want even more land,'"  Bouman said, adding that corridors leading in and out of the  high country are important for Ihe  natural sea-to-mountain corridors  many species utilize ��� such as  the marbled murrelel.  As for fish, Bouman, a consultant for silvicultural contractors  said, "downstream benefits arc  the most important. Fish-bearing  qualities of waterways are of primary importance."  The fish that are in the Tetrahedron, mostly dolly vardon and  trout, are contained in a select  group of lakes.

') - (,  MASON I III 1 SIIIDMI Coast News, January 24, 1994  opinion  Will we get a  break today?  The news that a McDonald's will soon be raising its  golden arches at a location near you ��� in Sechelt, to be  exact (see news story on page 6) ��� in all likelihood will  have a certain polarizing influence on the community ���  regardless of the merits or demerits of the hamburger  chain's specific plans for this area.  We suspect that, depending on which pole you're  attracted to, it will either be Big Mac attack time or  attack-Big-Mac-time.  Those Sunshine Coasters who have Big Mac attacks  that now can only be fulfilled by a trip to Vancouver will  no doubt rejoice at being able to satisfy their cravings that  much closer to home.  Those who are more likely to find it to be attack-Big-  Mac-time will see the coming McDonald's as the end of  an era, which in a sense it is. The time before McDonald's  was indeed a simpler ��� and decidedly less populous ���  time on the Sunshine Coast. And those who are upset  about its coming may more likely be upset about what it  says about them and the dreams they had for themselves.  Many who settled the Coast did so to get away from what  McDonald's now symbolizes ��� urban mass culture.  Many people here had a special vision for themselves  and it's not turning out quite the way they first saw it.  After all, what is there, objectively, to fear from the  coming of another retailer of hamburgers, albeit a very  large and powerful one? Nothing, unless we are militant,  anti-beef vegetarians on the order of singer k.d. lang.  Could it be that it's the brand name that scares us, with  so many million served? Perhaps, yet the Coast is replete  with brand names: Coca Cola, Bud, Shell, PetroCan,  IGA...  No, it's the change and the symbolism that frighten.  Objectively speaking, McDonald's as a business does  confer certain benefits on a community in which it takes  up residence. It usually becomes involved in fund-raising  for community projects and provides part-time work ��� or  McJobs as they have become known ��� for those who  might otherwise not be able to find employment.  At this point, we should address our more cynical readers. Yes, this newspaper would be interested in carrying  McDonald's advertising if the chain does set up shop out  here.  And yet, we feel for, and with, those who oppose the  coming of McDonald's, even as we understand those who  can't wait for it to get here. Because somehow, the golden  arches weren't part of our original vision either.  "Going to the dogs  Dogs have traditionally been regarded as man's best  friend. However, it seems that some dog owners feel that  because their pets have preferred status at home, they  should have the same right to roam free outdoors.  Perhaps they are right; much of the coast is more rural  or semi-rural in nature than it is urban and in such a context owning dogs makes more sense than not.  However, these same owners must realize that owners  of other pets have a right to expect their dogs will be kept  in check.  If they aren't, the dog owners can expect a backlash  that has the force of the law behind it.  letters  Monetary help  urgently needed  An urgent matter has arisen  on our Coast. One of our local  Roberts Creekers, Robin Davidson, a young wife and mother of  two preschoolers, who is suffering from a rare type of cancer,  has been given a newer type of  treatment not covered by our  medical system.  The first series of injections  are well underway and things  are looking good. However her  doctor feels that a second scries  should be looked into.  The cost to the family for the  treatment came to apporoxi-  mately $6,000, not to mention  the travel costs for tests, checkups and medicine pickups and  prescriptions.  We have opened an account  at the Bank of Montreal for  Robin and encourage any who  feel they could help, to please  make a donation.  Being the close, caring community that we are, we feel that  you would like an opportuntiy  to help Robin and her family.  FRIENDS OF KOBIN  Thank you but...  A note of thanks for Don  Anderson's coverage in the Jan.  17 article re the recreation  report of the Tetrahedron Local  Resource Use Plan (LRUP). For  a relative newcomer to this area  (and this unique process), Don  grasped the main points of the  exercise, but I would like to correct and clarify a couple of  points.  The Outdoor Recreation  Advisory Committee (ORAC), a  committee of the SCRD's Economic Development Commission, was the group who met on  Jan. 11 and agreed to a minimum wilderness area as delineated by the "Option 6" proposal of the LRUP's Wilderness  subcommittee, with further  "add-ons."  It should be understood  clearly that from this base area,  further refinements for recreation west (not east) of the  Option 6 boundary within the  LRUP studv area will be nolat-  ed.  This "red flagging" procedure will also identify areas  adjacent to the study area's  western and southern boundaries, where some recreational  pursuits (such as cross country  skiing) recognize only suitable  terrain and not boundaries per  se.  For example, amenities such  as the Tannis Lake Recreation  Reserve, lake and trail buffers  and adequate stream-side management (to protect and enhance  the angling resource), should be  identified now (Land Use decision) and acknowledged in  future planning objectives  (Management decision).

JANYK  /  Chill wind blowing off the Russian steppes this winter  There's a cold wind blowing off the Russian  steppes this winter, folks, and it's sending its chill  around the world.  It's not just the advent onto the world stage of  the mercurial Mr. Vladimir Zhirinovsky, though  the concept of such as he being just one election  away from Ihe virtually dictatorial powers of Boris  Yeltsin's new super presidency is chilling enough.  Bui the setting in which Zhirinovsky operates  casts a dark shadow both backwards and forwards.  It sometimes appears we get ourselves caught  up in chanting magic phrases designed to ward off  evil spirits. We do this mystical chanting with a  heavy overlay of learned sounding rationalization,  but mystical chanting it is nonetheless.  In the corridors of power today we mutter  'democracy' as a guardian against the dark, and  popular of late has been the mantra 'free market  forces'. Admirable concepts both, with some significant positive achievements to their names. The  exercise here is to question their validity as surefire  cure-alls for the ills of the world.  The concept of democracy is one which I have  been fortunate enough to live under all of my life.  With all its failings and frustrations, it is a concept  1 passionately support. It is a means of protecting  people from the exploitation which comes with  protracted privilege. Better by far to be able to  throw the rascals out of office by ballot than to  have to respond to oppression by violence with all  its bloody chaos and uncertainty of outcome.  musings  But it is a single tool in the kitbox of social  engineering. By itself it is not enough. The practitioners must maintain reasonable ethical standards  and the people must be reasonably satisfied with  their lives so that extremists and madmen have no  allure for them.  Without these two indispensable conditions  democracy is no sure guardian. Hitler, it must be  remembered, was elected chancellor of Germany in  1933. It may be remembered that 'free market  forces,' aloof from national rivalries and detached  from any concept of morality, fueled his war  machine.  The parallels between the Germany of 1933 and  the Russia of 1994 are especially disquieting.  The savagery and madness which was the First  World War would be attributed by most historians  today to a failure of diplomacy on the part of all of  the so-called civilized nations. But at the peace  treaty in Versailles in 1919 that did not prevent the  victors from exacting brutal recompense from the  john burnside  defeated Germans. That treaty made the functioning of a German economy all but impossible and  created economic chaos and mass suffering for the  German people. The humiliation the treaty imposed  discredited the moderate forces in German politics  who signed it and set the stage for Hitler to strut  with his dreams of imperial grandeur.  Russia today is uncomfortably like the Germany  of the early 1930s. It is humiliated by an economic  collapse, caused by spending itself into beggary in  the insane arms race of the Cold War and by the  suffocating ineptitude of an over-centralized and  self-serving bureaucracy. The colossus of just three  yean ago is the international basket case of today.  Inflation is rampant, crime is on the increase,  the people are suffering and without hope.  Regular readers of this space may recall that I  have never been an admirer of Boris Yeltsin. As  early as August of 1991 I was expressing some  foreboding about the vindictive egotism with which  he humiliated Mikhail Gorbachev and about his  fondness for ruling by decree.  Since then, we have watched as the democrat  who came to prominence standing on a tank in  defiance of the military outside the Russian parliament buildings turned the same tanks on parliament  when it failed to reflect his will. Democrats are  compromisers and facilitators. Yeltsin is neither.  After smashing parliament and the parliament  buildings, he devised a constitution to fit his own  intemperate egotism, a constitution which allows  the president to ignore parliament and to rule by  decree whenever he deems it appropriate. Zhirinovsky has let it be known he intends to seek the  presidency in 1996.  The collapse and humiliation of Russia has created the seed bed and Yeltsin has provided the  tools for the lethal mixture of expansionism and  nationalism embodied in Zhirinovsky. The recent  decision to allow former Communist satellites at  some future date to become members of NATO  will have done nothing to lessen Russia's age-old  paranoia about being surrounded by hostiles and  cut off from the sea.  The Russian dream of dominion from the Baltic  to the Black Seas was not born with Communism  and, witness Zhirinovsky, did not die with Communism. He may seem like an unlikely clown to the  rest of us: so did Hitler. But if he speaks to something resonant in the Russian psyche, inflamed by  humiliation, there is no telling where his road will  lead.

Wayward memory throws up  a story here about the establishment of a women's club in  Toronto some 20 or 15 years  ago called Twenty-One McGill.  I wouldn't say that this was Ihe  first all-women's club in the  town, that is specifically barring  all men, but it was certainly the  most prominent lo come along.  It was solidly sited in ils own  three story stone building in the  centre of town, a building moreover with a tradition, though not  a tradition that my friends and I  had much sympathy with. For  some decades il had been the  Dominion headquarters of the  Women's Christian Temperence  Union (WCTU) which for those  unacquainted with these turmoil  filled years of our recent history,  was the outfit that spearheaded  Prohibition.  It was a large, square, solid  grey stone building, eminently  qualified to be called uncompromising; and it sat just off Yonge  Street at the end of McGill.  McGill at that time was the  western edge of Hogtown, the  slum end, the neither here nor  there end.  in a nutshell  Twelve or 15 years ago, and  I'm sorry I can't be more specific because a lot has happened  from year to year in our town  geographies and on our gender  graphics, but back when the  girls, as it was okay to refer lo  Ihem, were starting their club  the whole area was being turned  into a paved and bricked and  shrubbed and tubbed midtown  set for the young and upwardly  mobile.  Going about through it while  all this was going on it was of  course, almost unnoticeable, as  was what was going on inside  the old WCTU building.  Goodness knows how many  stern faced ex-presidents of the  WCTU may have been whirling  in their graves as the lively  ladies of the new club set about  their renovations. We, males  that is, knew really very little  about it. The word was out of  course, that there was going to  be this jazzy City Club from  which all males would be  excluded, and some of the people we talked to would have  friends and wives etc. busily  stuart nutter  engaged in at least the plotting  of what was going on in there  but nobody was talking at all  about Ihe details.  The talk about, among the  men, as far as I remember, was  on a kind of ho-ho indulgent  level, ll would never work and  so forth. We were people with  experience of the fact that even  the Press Clubs across Ihe country had just a short time before  this, been all male.  Chatter about the new club  involved this and other stentorian male enclaves, but it was not  I think thought thai 'Les Girls'  (as it was then okay to call  them) had any really political  views in the start of this club.  We, the males again of  course, and I have no other position from which to remember  this, thought that our friends  (wives etc.) were simply doing  something that pleased them,  bless their hearts, charming and  so on, an interesting addition to  the scene perhaps.  After it started and you were  invited in for dinner perhaps, or  a dance or a reading by Mar  garet Atwood or whatever, you  came up a few low marble steps  into a broadloomed vestibule  with a few couches and chairs  scattered about and a few usually single and unconversational  males scattered about on them.  You gave your name to the lady  at the desk and you waited. You  never just wafted in beyond this  point, however well known you  might possibly be.  The males sat there, usually  singly as I say, often for quite  long periods, until some signal  was given to lei them in. In my  own case I remember that this  was probably good for the collective soul.  In terms of events the club  had a rocky start. Il was  revealed that instead of being  owned by the ladies it was  owned by a couple of male  enlrepreneurs, wilh the president  up there as some kind of front.  Good hard core members got  together, bought oul the lads and  ditched the president, but before  she was quite gone there was a  disastrous fire which gutted the  inlerior of the old WCTU building once again.  A stalwart and charming  group of members got together,  sorted out the shaky insurance  situation left to them and rebuilt  the place.  The opening dance they put  on was quite smashing, the  place continued as it was first  hoped to be and as far as I'm  concerned I wish there were  more of them.

Re: January IO article  "Seniors susceptible to drug  problems."  First, I would like to thank  Ian Cobb and the Coast News  for taking an interest in issues  related to seniors and alcohol  and drug problems.  We need and appreciate the  coverage that we get from pur  local press on the programs that  we provide and the issues that  concern us.  However the article states  that the "Seniors drug information resource centre has been  established by the ministry of  health in concert with Action  Alcohol and Drug Counselling  Society."  Actually, the resource centre  is funded by Ihe ministry of  health, with no connection with  Action: Alcohol and Drug  Counselling Society. Secondly,  there is the statement the  "Seniors...don't realize they're  incorrectly using prescription  drugs."  I would like it to have read  "some seniors." Most seniors  are very responsible for their  health issues; however, some  aren't.  Lastly, the article states that a  local seniors peer counselling  program has been established.  This is not the case; however  Action: Alcohol and Drug  Counselling Society and a staff  person from the Sunshine Coast  Home Support Society are looking into helping to get such a  program going here on Ihe  Coast.  CHARLOTTE MALLORY,  Executive Director  Action: Alcohol and Drug  Counselling Society  Questions about  male violence  In regards to a letter in the  recent past concerning violence  against women, do we as a society recognize atrocities inacted  against males regardless of  age? To my way of thinking,  certain perspectives should be  more closely analyzed as per the  following;   1.1 am in no way.coodpsirig.  violence against the fethale sex,  however James Dobson, a psychologist and John White, psychiatrist, both commendable in  their expertise, have put forth in  their books that more males  between the ages of seven and  12 are under psychiatric care  than females.  What psycho-social stresses  are causing this ratio difference?  2. Is their unbiased counselling for males of all ages?  3. Is there not a bit of irony  lying behind the fact that males  in prison sometimes not only  have to suffer the indignities of  being beaten, raped and forced  to have oral sex, yet this is not  considered an assault against  their person?  Rather they, when released,  are injected into a society which  treats these indignities as either  happening to them solely due to  their being criminals or deserving of such treatment as it was  their fault for being incarcerated.  Are Ihere provisions in society's criminal code for these  kind of atrocities as per example, criminal injuries compensation, counselling, etc?  4. Perhaps ihere is an underlying contradictory fulfilling of  justice in our society which creates violence rather than abating  such.

For too many years we have  been short-changed, and run  roughshod over by the BC Ferry  corporation.  For this reason we have to  "1661c no"further than our own'  tadtywd.  Our local politicians over the  years have been totally ineffective, perhaps unwilling in representing their constituents. In  addition, the local press has  only been able to knee-jerk after  the fact.  I have never seen any notice  of local meetings in time to  allow residents to prepare and  attend such events.  The ferry corporation has  used the excuse of subsidies as a  reason to raise our fares regularly, almost every year, with the  possible exceptions ��� the election years. What is this so-called  subsidy anyway?  Ask yourself, how much  would it cost to maintain a road  from Port Mellon to Squamish.  Should this amount not be given  to the ferry corporation, by the  provincial government, as a  grant, to offset the cost of operating the Langdale mn?  If you Ihink this idea to be  far-fetched, let me remind you  thai our provincial government  accepts every year millions of  dollars in lieu of the federal  government's obligation to  build and maintain TransCanada  Highway 1 between the Mainland and Vancouver Island.  Money lhal, incidentally, disappears into general revenues,  never to be seen by the Ferry  Corporation.  Have our local polilicos not  enough brains lo think of this  Going Awny  on Vacation?

To see what can be accomplished with a bit of determination, look at Merrit.  The Okanagan connector,  linking the Coquihalla highway  to the Okanagan, was orginally  planned for a different route.  The people in Merrit and  their politicians from councillor  to MLA made such a racket that  the provincial government redesigned the connector terminate at Merrit, at a considerable  higher cost for construction,  extra time and extra gasoline  use and resulting pollution by  every car driving that way.  Then there is the little matter  of the ferries of the department  of highways in the interior of  BC ��� ferries that provide a service that in most cases is absolutely non-essential to the people being served, and that provide a schedule the likes we  used to have in the early '60s.  The one across Kootenay  Lake from Balfor (just east of  Vernon) to Kootenay Bay, a distance almost the same as our  run, operates from 6 am to 2 am  hourly, absolutely free to users.  Yes, I know and the ferry corporation is always very quick to  point it oul, that we are served  by the BC Ferry Corporation,  not the Department of Highways.

Sound familiar?  That tried and true saying known lo  carnivores across the globe will soon be  coming lo a neighborhood near you when  McDonald's Restaurants finally finds a  suitable tract of land on which to mount  its golden arches in Sechelt.  A spokesman for the billion-dollar  reslaurunt chain has announced il is  intending lo purchase land and construct  a McDonald's restaurant in Sechelt.  "Yes, we are looking," said Ron Mar-  couXi president and CEO of McDonald's  Restaurants of Western Canada.  "We are dealing wilh a few people anil  the Sechell Indian Band and trying lo  legitimize our capital requirements for an  operation on the Sunshine Coasl."  Marcoux said Ihe chain has been  reviewing the latest real        estate estimates tabulated  for the Sunshine Coast,  particularly Sechelt, and  all indicators point lo Ihe  possibility of a successful operation.  "We have been looking at Sechell and Ihe  Sunshine Coasl for sonic  time," he said.    The franchise, which  will cost several hundred thousand dollars to purchase, will be operated privately by a resident or residents of the Sunshine Coasl who don'l already own a  franchise.  'We have been  looking at Sechelt  and the  Sunshine Coast  for some time'  -Ron Marxxnix  Marcoux said the chain is reviewing  its capital costs and searching for an  appropriate parcel of land to purchase for  the restaurant. Although  he wouldn't provide  details of specific lands  being reviewed by the  company, Marcoux said  there would be special  benefits to setting up  shop on band lands,  including possible tax  breaks.  _____���_ McDonalds Restau  rants of Western Canada  traditionally grants 12 franchises a year  between Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C.  Pat Hobhs, president of the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce, refused lo com  ment on behalf of the chamber but added  a few personal remarks.  He is indifferent to the idea of the  chain operating out of Sechelt and would  rather see something of a "smaller scale."  Although it will spawn jobs and competition, the franchise will undoubtedly  "hurt" established businesses in some  ways.  "It's a tough call," he said. "I think we  should be centering on a recreation centre  and other things; kids will obviously use  this as a hangout."  If a restaurant bearing Ihe famous  golden arches appears on the Coast, il  should at least fit in with Ihe community,  he added.

Sechelt RCMP nab suspected purse snatchers  Two Sechell men have been  charged in connection wilh a  purse snatching at Trail Day  Mall earlier Ihis month.  Lionel Conrad Joe and Curtis  Matthew Craigan have been  charged with theft under $1,000  for allegedly ripping an elderly  woman's purse from her as she  was walking into ihe mall with  her husband Jan. 2.  Police made the arrests after  receiving a tip from a member  of the Sechelt Indian band who  had witnessed the incident and  was able to identify the men.  The purse was not retrieved.  Joe and Craigan appeared in  Sechell Provincial Court last  Wednesday.  Joe was remanded in custody  because of a prior conviction for  possession of stolen goods,  police say.  Craigan was released and  will appear in court again later  this month.  Joe was also charged last  week with a second charge of  thcfl under $1,000 for an  alleged break and enter in  Sechelt in December during the  holidays.

RE^VIRC WMW,  Gibsons house razed in 'suspicious' blaze    \  Authorities are investigating  a residential fire in an Upper  Gibsons residence as arson.  Firefighters with the Gibsons  Volunteer Fire Department were  called out to 712 Highway 101  at;2 am Jan. 19 to combat a  blaze that eventually razed the  older residence.  Local assistant fire commissioner Clay Carby said he is  investigating the incident "as a  suspicious fire."  When asked if that means  arson, Carby said, "They're all  arson until I've proven otherwise."  The house was occupied at  the time by a lone male but officials won't release any names.  The man wasn't hurt, perhaps  because of the quick action by  neighbors who called it in.  While fire inspector Dave  Menzies and RCMP Const.  W.B. Bloomquist from Ihe Vancouver Sub-division forensics  unit poked through ihe wreckage of the house, Carby said the  cost in damages to the rental  home, which was up for sale al  the time of Ihe blaze, was  "about $30,000."  Authorities are continuing  their investigation.

In a move to offset operational costs,  Sechelt and Gibsons have agreed to lease 15  to 20 sites covering eight to 10 acres of land to  industrial-based businesses.  The sites are located at Ihe entrance to the  airport immediately north of the BC Hydro  building and as Councillor Mike Shanks  explained, leasing the properties should "generate considerable revenue."  "They would be rented out to businesses  who have some close connection with the airport predominantly," Shanks said.  One site has already been leased out to the  Devlin Funeral Home, and more are expected  to house businesses and structures by summer.  Sechelt and Gibsons will also be reviewing  adjacent properties located northeast to the airport.  Bolh governments have been seriously  considering leasing the municipal lands for  more than a year since businesses began  expressing interest in the property. The sites  are valued at between $90,000 and $100,000  each, and a road leading to the properties is  under development.  The extent of the leases ��� including length  and value ��� will be subject to review of the  existing leases with Devlin Funeral Home and  the three aviation companies currently renting  space at the airport ��� Rizar Aviation Ltd,  Airspan Helicopters Ltd. and Vancouver Helicopters Inc.  Companies leasing space will be responsible for all property taxes, construction of the  structure and its removal upon expiry of the  lease. "We have made application for the  extension of the runway and that sort of thing  for which there is money available," Shanks  said. "There is money available for capital  expenditures through the federal government."  Shanks said any improvements Sechelt and  Gibsons would like to undertake at the airport  can only be supported through revenue generated from the airport property.  "We are approaching it on two fronts, I  guess, in terms of expansion of the airport to  accomodate larger aircraft," he said.  "In the meantime, we should be able to put  something in place which would generate revenue for the airport ourself so we are not faced  with any deficit situation in the running of the  airport." In previous years, the airport has  faced a "phenomenal" deficit situation,  Shanks said.

I .>...���..   .aj^rtpa**,',^ ^t^Hl^+MrtaW  Blockades last resort, coalition assures  by Ian Cobb  The BC Fisheries Survival Coalition wants the  federal government to axe the Aboriginal Fishing  Strategy (AFS) in the interest of keeping the West  Coast fishing industry alive.  Following a Jan. 14 meeting in Nanaimo by 850  members of the coalition, the coalition decided to  "take any action necessary lo stop the AFS," an  agreement its members believe gives the coastal  peoples (Skeena, Lower Fraser River, Nuu-Chah-  Nult) an advantage in Ihe industry  due to access to traditional and com-  mercial fishing grounds.  At the edge of "any action necessary" was a faint threat to blockade  coastal harbours, including those on  Ihe Sunshine Coast.  However, as coalition lawyers  prepare to approach the federal government to discuss the AFS, threats  of blockades have taken a cooling  back burner. ���������  "Our participation in a blockade  would be a last resort action," said Sunshine Coast  coalition representative Josh Young.  "We're not interested in affecting Ihe livelihoods  of people on the Sunshine Coast. We are just concerned with keeping stocks healthy for every one,"  Young said.  "What I think created Ihis kind of concern is  (that) there has been a real effort made by the federal  government to create a new entity among the commercial fishing indusiry thai provides access to relatively limited and relatively scarce resources for  aboriginal people above and beyond Ihe food fish  status, and in doing that, they've created a management structure lhal essentially discriminates against  people of aboriginal classification and non-aborigi-  "We're not interested  in affecting tlte  livelihoods of  people on the  Sunshine Coast'  Josh Young  nal classification. I wouldn't say it's racist, but I  think the distinctions are made on basis of racial origin," remarked Sunshine Coast MLA Gordon Wilson said.  "From my point of view, the provincial ministry  should be working with the Department of Fisheries  and Cceans federally, to try to amend this aboriginal  strategy to create one fishery, not three fisheries, so  that everyone has equal access to the resource so that  the laws are applied equally to all people who seek  to become fishers," he said.  Meanwhile, survival coalition  president Phil Eidsvic said the consensus among the 12,000-member  coalition is "to go ahead with legal  action and lo challenge the government's AFS."  A blockade of coastal harbours,  he said, "would be a last-ditch effort  to get the government to listen."  As of Jan. 19, Eidsvic said, "We  ___ haven't heard a damn thing about it  yet" from any government office.  When asked for comment on the coalition's  recent statements, Sechelt Indian Band chief Gary  Feschuk said that a blockade of harbours "is against  all the laws of Canada."  Feschuk said the Band will lake a wait-and-see  approach and watch the negotiations.  Department of fisheries and oceans manager of  media relations Bill Morrell lold the Coast News  thai discussions are in the works and lhat there's a  misconception by many fishers regarding the AFS.  "The sale of fish has become the AFS in the  minds of many people and it's much more than that.  Il's important to recognize there many other aspects  of the AFS lhal arc important and benefit eveyone,  nol just aboriginal peoples."  The Lwyest savings oi the  heating season are here now!

Grade  12 provincials begin on January  28 and carry through the next  week; books should be returned  at lime of the exam.  With provincials also comes  the semester turn around; all  senior students should be sure  that their classes for next  semester are indeed what they  want.  February 11 and 12 will bring  a massive junior and senior basketball tournament to the Coast,  teams from all over ihe Greater  Vancouver area as well as our  own three high schools will be  competing.

Speaking of sports, anyone  who has pictures of their favorite  Elphie sports star that would be  worthy of yearbook publication  should get them to Kyla McDonald as soon as possible.

"Bet you've never  heard of it," said Wally Langdale whose  dad's homestead of years ago is now the  ferry terminal site.  "Here, read my account of a backpack  trip I made away back in the 1930s from the  Seymour River along the old Lillooet Trail  towards Squamish. Loch Lomond is along  the way, a gem of a lake with heather growing all around the shore."  The little lake is at 4,000 feet altitude.  Nearby is Ben Lomond, 1,000 feet higher.  "At that time you could go down from near  there through the Britannia mine to the  shores of Howe Sound with permission, of  course.  "And that's what we were able to do after  hiking for four days from Seymour River."  Wally writes that early on along the trail  they had seen skunk cabbage four feet tall  and great patches of ominous-looking devils  club.  A great pine beside the trail had dozens of  blazes on its trunk left by previous hikers.  "We had to get a medical certificate of  clear health before we could apply for a permit to enter the watershed that gives Vancouver its water. Then off we went on the  Lynn Valley streetcar that took us to the trail  start on Seymour River."  "Once," Wally's account tells us, "the  trail jusl disappeared under a rockslide of  recent years. I was elected to climb the slide  to get our bearings.  "Halfway up, Loch Lomond came into  view. Sure glad to see it."  The lake was being dammed at the time  to provide water to Britannia mine and we  stayed at their work camp there overnight  before going down into the mine in an ore  bucket and then walking the tracks of the  electric train to gel out. We got on the steamer to Vancouver and headed for the dining  salon.  "Il's a wonder they let us in, we looked so  grimy and unshaven. And I had a swollen  eye from a wasp sting."

Eveiywhere you look  something new is being built or  modernized.  The Creek school foundations for the new mulli-puipose  classroom have now been  poured and Ihe steel floor joists  are in place.  The walls are now being constructed and the roof will be the  next step.  The four old classrooms have  been stripped oul and the framing is now ready for the new  larger windows.  It is expected that this final  phase of construction will be  finished by April.  The classes now using the  front portables will then move  into the school, the portables  removed and at long last intention will be given to Ihe playing  field.  Further down the street, the  second phase of the Roberls  Creek slore is well underway.  Recently the walls were framed  in and Ihe roof has been shingled.  When finished, Ihe addition  will be the new warehouse and  receiving dock. The temporary  wall in the store will be  removed adding a further eight  feet.  Completion date is estimated  for the middle of March. And  that is progress in the Creek.  RCCA  The propane tanks located al  the waterfront have in the past  raised a lol of questions and  concerns. We last heard that at  the end of 1993 they would be  removed. This apparently is not  lobe.  ICG Propane has been granted an extension by the provincial government to carry on  until the end of June.

Writing skills  Judy Gill of Redrooffs is a prolific writer  of novels, having had some 30 books published.  She knows exactly how to submit works  to publishers and has agreed lo pass along  helpful information to those who would like  to have their manuscripts accepted.  Every year Ihe Suncoast Writers' Forge  sponsors a writing contest for Sunshine  Coast residents.  Many entries are received and several of  them are rejected, much to Ihe disappointment of Ihe writer.  The most common reason for rejection is  the inadequacy of the presentation of the  work.  Your story may be a good one, but if it is  not typed in double spacing, or if punctuation, paragraph setting, quotation signs are  omitted or misplaced, the editor will in all  probability cast aside Ihe manuscript.  You could avoid the pitfalls thai cause  editorial rejection by attending Judy's workshop on Saturday, Feb. 5 al Rockwood Centre form I lo 4 pm.  The fee is $15. For Forge members, it's  only $10. For information and registration  call Barbara Whistler at 885-5076.  Paper cups  For several weeks now it has been most  annoying lo find that, once again, ferry passengers are having to drink their tea or coffee out of paper cups.

Or is it just  more convenient to force these atrocities on  us?

Hospital auxiliary  The members of the PH branch of St.  Mary's Hospital auxiliary want the people of  Pender Harbour and Egmont to know how  much they appreciate all the help they get in  their endeavour to raise money for the benefit of the patients' comfort at St. Mary's  Hospital.  Thirty-eight members volunteered 9,114  hours last year and turned over $5,000 to St.  Mary's. This money came from fundraising  which included a fashion show, catering,  handicrafts, garage sale and many bake sales.  They also made 'tray favours' for every  patient in the hospital on various holidays  during the year such as Valentine's, St.  Patrick and Christmas to name a few. They  also worked in the hospital gift shop and  many hours in the Thrift Shop in Sechelt.  At Totem Lodge they helped out with  patient feeding and hosted two of the 12 special monthly birthday parties held for the residents.  They are just getting started on another  busy year and if any of you would like to  join in on this very rewarding and worthwhile effort you would be most welcome.  The next meeting will be held at St.  ft  Andrew's Church, Wednesday, Feb. 9 at  1:30 pm.  Serendipity dance  As mentioned last week this dance will be  held at the community hall on Friday, Feb.  11 from 8 pm to I am. There will be a light  buffet during the evening while you're dancing to the music of Night Moves. There will  be door prizes and a silent auction. Tickets  are $15 each and area available at the Oak  Tree, Rob's Video and PetroCan.  Heart and Stroke  This foundation will be canvassing on the  Coast during the last two weeks of February.  Canvassers are needed for the Pender Harbour and Egmont areas. We all realize that  this area is not a simple one for door lo door  but with your help surely this area can make  a worthwhile donation. Phone Marie Steel at  885-2156 for information.  Last Item  The PH Lionesses are collecting beer and  pop tabs at their two drop boxes ��� at the  liquor store and the other at the Pizza Pantry.  egmont news  ��ff  by Maureen Parrott, 889-9189  I left a case of eggs on the  porch and in the morning one  was gone, fished out through the  handlehole of the box. It was a  neat job ��� a piece of eggshell  on the bench and maybe a whiff  of skunk ��� no big mess.  I don't mind skunks as neighbours. They're pretty and peaceful. They help control mice or  rats. Once in a while they fight  with cals or strange skunks, but  the smell goes away in a couple  of days.  If you find a skunk in the  house, remember that it doesn't  want to spray anyone: it doesn't  like the smell any more than you  do. Move quietly and don't  chase it and it will do its best to  keep out of your way. It often  walks noisily, and this helps you  avoid it. If you talk quietly, that  helps it avoid you. Keep pets  away!  Skunks come into houses for  warmth in winter. Keep doors  closed to keep them out.  If one slips in. leave ihe door  open and lights off and it will  likely wander out overnight.  You can trap it with a sloping  board up to a garbage can baited  wilh food scraps in the bottom.  Cover the can and carry it out  very gently. Call Doug Williams  at 883-9988 for more help.  Salmon enhancement  At Sakinaw Lake, salmon  enhancement volunteers report  that cutthroat trout have been  moving up the streams to spawn.  TV In Egmont  A TV crew from CKVU  interviewed Bergliot Solberg  and John Seabrook two weeks  ago. Bergliot appeared on U  News at 6 and 11 pm last week.

They will always be welcome  here, as they are uncle and aunt  to Ella and Sally, Leonard,  Gene, Bruce, Wally and Doug  Silvey.  Did I leave anyone out?

Or possibly a Kurt Browning  or Elizabeth Manley.  Whichever il may be, Ihere is  no doubting Ihe strengths of the  rapidly flourishing club, currently bursting at the seams wilh  201 members.  "I gel calls from kids every  week wanting lo join," said registrar Debbie Dubois, following  Ihe recenl passing of Ihe deadline for registration in Ihe club  Ihis season.  "It's really very popular on  the Coasl; there's nol much else  lo do," she added.  The club caters to skaters  three years old and up, including  the occasional adult lacing up  ihe skates for the first lime.  Programs are arranged  according to age and skill level,  and youths are encouraged to  pursue the sport at a higher  level.  Some 32 skaters are currently  honing their skills in the competitive program offered by the  club, which has led to representation at the BC Regionals and  provincial contests.  In early February, the club  will send five of its top skaters  to the Penticton Ogo Pogo competition while still more will  seek recognition at the annual  North Shore event March 10.  "I can see a few of them pursuing it further," Dubois said,  when asked about the future of  the club's young skaters.  Members receive instruction  from two professional coaches  ���Denise North and Karen  The  popularity  of the  Sunshine  Coast  Figure  Skating  Club  continues to  grow.  Don Anderson  pholo  Popham ��� and eight junior  coaches.  Parents interested in signing  up their kids with the club in the  belief that it may be cheaper  than hockey should think again.  Because of the District of  Sechelt's desire lo ensure the  arena does not run a deficit, fees  for rental of the ice have been  set at a level higher than what  you would find in most BC  communities.  As a result, the figure skating  club has been required to charge  membership dues higher lhan  elsewhere in the province. Dues  for the September to March programs range from $90 for young  children lo $425 for the competitive level skaters.  And in many cases, the club  has been forced to turn away  parents and children because  there simply isn't enough ice  time available to accommodate  any more skaters.  "There is no more ice time to  be had. The only solution is that  second rink," Dubois said.  If a second rink were added,  Dubois estimates membership in  both the Sunshine Coast Minor  Hockey Association and the figure skating club would double.

V4*��:ri..VA '*-���>*  ^^_  '      "   mm  mmmmmmtmm Coast News, January 24, 1994  15  feature  Tale of Corky the whale marked by personality, politics  by Darah Hansen  part V in a series  Reports that Corky is sick  and dying are simply not true.  Dr. Paul Spong is spreading  misinformation to the public,  says an indignant Dr. Jim  Antrim, general curator of the  California Sea World aquarium  where the orca whale is being  kept.  When talking of Spong, an  independent whale researcher  working off the northern coasl  of B.C., it's clear Antrim tries to  maintain a cordial tone; it's part  of his job to maintain good  public relations for one of the  world's most successful aquariums. It's also clear there's some  anger behind what he's saying,  maybe frustration.  Whatever the emotion, it's  enough to put a strain on all the  pleasantries.  Like kids drawing lines in the  sand, Spong and Antrim have  been standing on opposite sides  of the playground for years ���  Spong fighting for Corky's  release to the wild and Antrim  for the importance of her  remaining in captivity.  At the centre of it all, Corky  swims around in her tank ignorant of the controversy  surrounding her existence.  Antrim is at first vague when  describing his relationship with  Spong. He says he's talked to  the doctor "a couple of limes"  and known him "off and on" for  a number of years. He describes  their interaction as "conversant."  He says he understands  Spong's position regarding  whale captures and aquariums.  But his detachment slips  quickly aside as the conversation continues. He becomes  quite personal, calling Spong  several limes by his first name  and speaking of him in the first  person as though the doctor  were present in today's discussion.  Antrim accuses "Paul" of  lying, of using deliberate misinformation about Corky's life at  Sea World to induce public  sympathy and support towards  his whale-release proposal.  According to Antrim, Spong  has spread through the media  the belief that the whale is sick,  dying and often alone in the  tank she shares with five other  orca whales.  Antrim shakes his head.  "1 don't see how he could  make a statement like that. It  was based on some misinformation, I'm sure."  Antrim's doubtful that Spong  has ever actually seen Corky in  her Sea World facilities. He says  the last time Spong was inside  the aquarium gates was in 1983  and "Corky wasn't even here  then."  Corky was acquired by Sea  World from the Los Angeles  Marineland aquarium in 1987.  Spong has since been invited  in, Antrim says.  "I said, Paul, you and I have  known each other for a long  lime. Why don't you come and  take a look at her?"  Again, according to Antrim,  Spong refused. "He must sneak  in if he has seen her."  Loading an orca in Garden Bay, captured off Pender Harbour,  circa 1968. photo submitted  Antrim isn't shy about  launching his personal attacks  on Spong's scientific credibility.  "One interesting thing about  Dr. Spong is I haven't found  he's published anything in the  referenced published literature  for years and nothing on killer  whales," Antrim says, adding he  has been published a number of  times on the subject of whale  research.  "It's interesting what (Spong)  does with all his data."  And he points out a number  of discrepancies between what  he's actually heard Spong say  and what Spong has been quoted  saying in the media.  "Dr. Spong said he's collected evidence that three animals  from her original pod are still  around today and yet, there in a  print interview, he doesn't know  if her mother is still alive or  doesn't know where she is."  Antrim doesn't name the  publication from which he is  quoting. He does, however,  recall a 1982 interview with  Stephen Hume in the Victoria  Times-Colonist.  In it, Spong is quoted as  being opposed to "the idea of  releasing captive whales after  six years."  Corky has now been in captivity for 25 years.  Such personal attacks are  nothing new to those opposing  big business, says Spong supporter Dr. Naomi Rose, a biologist with the Humane Society of  the United States.  Scientists like both herself  and Spong are easy targets, she  says. They are no longer "pure"  scientists but have moved into  the realm of animal welfare  advocates.  "But that doesn't make us  freaks or kooks like Ihey uy and  paint us."  Rose is also a player in a  whale release program. Her  project is for Keiko, the orca  whale which starred in the  Warner Brothers film, Free  Willy. She has had several dealings with Sea World trying to  prevent it from acquiring the  whale from Reino Azenturo, the  Mexican aquarium in which  he's currently kept.  Rose wants to see him  returned to Iceland where he  was captured.  Rose says Sea World is  afraid of Spong, afraid of the  precedent the success of his  Corky project could present lo  their business.  Let one whale go and they'll  have to let them all go, she says.  Rose estimales Sea World  makes 75 per cent of its annual  multi-million dollar business  from daily whale shows.  "I see so many people worried about their image," she  says, angrily.  "This whole thing looks like  human ego is overwhelming the  needs of this animal."  As for Spong, he calmly  shrugs off the slights lo his  character.  Poinl for point, he says,  Antrim and Sea World are Ihe  ones spreading the misinformation.  Spong says he has never been  opposed to the release of captive  whales. The Hume article was a  "misrepresentation" of his  words.  He agrees with Rose. The  aquariums are scared.  What if the Corky Project is a  success? he asks. "What do (the  aquariums) have to lose?"  "What they really do have to  lose...is their future business."  To be continued  Spong takes appeal for orca freedom to public through open forum  Dr. Paul Spong delivered a moving  speech Wednesday evening to a crowd  of approximately 300 animal lovers  gathered at the John Oliver High  School in East Vancouver.  The topic was one that Spong, an  orca whale expert, has been speaking  on for over 20 years ��� freeing whales  from captivity. Specifically, Spong  talked about his proposed release of  Corky, an orca captured by fishermen  in Garden Bay in 1968.  Now at Sea World, California,  Corky is the oldest whale in captivity.  During his speech, Spong appealed  to the crowd to help end the "cycle of  abuse" inflicted by humans on other  animals for too long.  He dismissed arguments put forward  by Corky's captors and other aquarium  proponents that his proposed experiment could cost the whale her life.  "She has a chance and that chance is  good enough for me," he said.  "There's no question anymore. It  (the release) can be done."  Spong was joined during the evening  by three prominent speakers all voicing  their support for the Corky Project.  Executive director of the Vancouver  SPCA, Michael Weeks, opened the  night's events, followed by veterinarian  and broadcaster Dr. Adrian Cooper and  Dr. Jim Darling, executive director of  the West Coasl Whale Research Foundation in Tofino. Video footage pre  sented by Spong showed Corky swimming in a repetitive circular pattern  alone in her Sea World aquarium tank.  The only difference between the  whale's actions in the tank ��� considered the most modern in the world ���  and that of a tiger pacing around a  metal-barred cage of a 19th century zoo  is that Corky can leave no footprints,  Spong said.  "Out of sight. Out of mind."  Outside the auditorium, those attend  ing the event mingled among tables set  up in the crowded school corridor courtesy of various environmental and animal rights groups including Greenpeace  Canada, the Coalition for No Whales in  Captivity Period and Friends of the  Wolf.  Pamphlets, petitions, brochures and  books were available to raise awareness  on any topic from radioactive waste and  ocean dumping to the virtues of vegetarianism.

But given a day or so with the  instrument ��� considered one of  Ihe most difficult brass instruments to play ��� the 22-year-old  songwriter figures he could  probably start playing tunes on  it. "If there isn't an instrument 1  don't play, I'd like to learn it,"  Olsen said, during an interview  al the Inner Ear Studios in the  Creek lasl week. The Vancouver-born and Gibsons-raised  musician has moved from instrument lo instrument since first silling down in front of the piano al  the age of nine. To date, he has  worked with guitar, bass, drums,  mandolin, keyboards, baritone  and trombone.  Don't be suprised if the  accordion is next on his list.  Olsen will briefly flash his  musical expertise ��� sans accordion - as Ihe opening act for  New York, New York folk musician Ani DiFranco Monday, Jan.  24 at Roberls Creek Hall.'This is  probably the biggest gig I've  ever done on my own," he said.

Olsen's father, Carl, is credited as producer, having fronted  $3,000 for the making of the  album, which had started out as  a stripped down effort before  "mushrooming" into an ambitious full-scale production.  Not to worry, though. Olsen  is toying with the idea of packaging a four-song EP which will  be distributed to the managers of  various Vancouver clubs in the  hopes of scoring a few solo gigs  outside the Coast.  "I've got to get my message  to the people," Olsen said during  a break in rehearsals with Butler.  "I can't really make a living  playing music on the Coast for  the rest of my life."  When he is not playing coffee  houses, the Key Works Gallery,  the Rockwood Centre or the odd  hemp festival, Olsen spends his  time honing his musical talents  with Butler, the notorious  Roberts Creek ska/rock band.  Olsen joined the band in late  1992, with no clear idea of what  he would be doing. Having just  undergone a sudden roster  change, the boys eagerly welcomed the young musician.  Olsen was immediately handed a keyboard and trombone and  encouraged to join the rest of  Butler on a tie-dyed musical  journey through some of the  Coast's more interesting venues.  One of those somewhat attitude-altering experiences, a  three-night romp at Elphie's  Cabaret Aug. 5-7, was captured  on tape and released as a 10-  song demo entitled You Rang?  "I like performing and being  on stage," Olsen admits. "I've  been on stage all of my life. You  could say it is a bit of an ego  thing...(but) I think you have to  have an ego to be in this business."  DiFranco goes solo on Coast  Folk singer Ani DiFranco rarely shows fear,  especially when it involves obliterating stereotypes.  The 23-year-old musician/songwriter, originally  hailing from the arson-ravaged  landscapes of Buffalo, New York,  has ripped through a series of  slightly precarious themes since  her seif-titled debut released in  1990.  Among those themes are menstruation, politics of gender, sexuality, racial stereotypes, and vanity in the music business.  "I don't really get hung up with exposing anything anymore ... I'm just another human in tht!  race," explained the well-coifed DiFranco, in a  previous interview. DiFranco is currently in the  midst of a tour of Ihe west coast, which includes  dates in Seattle and Vancouver, not to mention a  plethora of American college campuses.  On Monday, Sunshine Coast residents will have  'I don't realty get  hung up with  exposing  anything anymore'  Ani DiFranco  show at Roberts Creek Hall starting at 7 p.m.  Local musician Grant Olsen is scheduled to  open the show, presented by the Acoustic Gumboot Folk Society.          ll will be DiFranco's first  appearance on the Coast and unlike  her appearance at Vancouver's  Vogue Theatre on Sunday, she will  not be sporting any accompaniment, aside from her guitar.  "One thing about playing and  performing solo is that you have to       be your own rhythm section,"  DiFranco told a Vancouver  reporter during her last tour of Western Canada in  late .1992. "I really like it sometimes when the  audience is in your face, because I'm the type of  person who likes to get in someone's face." .

The  renowned Shostakovich String  Quartet ��� one member is  bringing his wife ��� will stay  with Sunshine Coast families  from Feb. 8 to Feb. 12.  The Shostakovich String  Quartet is world famous.  Acclaimed at the prestigious  Edinburgh Festival and other  major festivals, they have also  played in 30 nations spanning  four continents.  Its members met at the  Moscow Conservatory in 1967  and have played together ever  since ��� without changes in personnel.  Their repertoire is wide-  ranging, and they have a really  marvellous program for us.  Rachmaninov's name is  familiar to all music lovers, but  his chamber music is little  known even to experts. Dating  back to 1889, his two unfinished string quartets were only  discovered in 1947, four years  after his death. The quartet will  play Ihe second of them.  The program will also  include Brahms' Quartet No. 2  which amply demonstrates the  composer's unsurpassed mastery in this medium.

In the end, it was decided to  farm out the $I5,000-$20,000 '  project to bidders who must  submit proposals to municipal  planner Susan Slralis by Jan. 28  However, interested parties  should know there's a long list  of requirements and background  that go along with the project.  For instance, there was a  November 1993 open house  that featured about 50 local residents chipping in ideas of what  they would like to see the park  become and from that session, a  list of preferences was compiled  by Stratis.  Included in that list of preferences, outlined in the 'request  for proposals,' are such  demands as these: "The park is  to become the centre of Ihe  community, not a tourist's park;  multiple uses are supported, but  not as sports activity or other  organized events; must be noncommercial; compatible with its  natural surroundings; it should  acknowledge the Gibsons heritage and history; emphasize the  water, foreshore, fish and  wildlife; be accessible to all citizens; use nalural and indigenous plants and species, and  make use of the nalural characteristics of the land; the park  and foreshore should compliment each other and flow  together; any essential public  facilities must be unobtrusive;  sight lines lo Ihe bay...preserved: sealing should conform  lo Ihe nalural landscape of Ihe  park; use for performing arts  was supported bul no permanent slruclures; craft and art as  occasional or special function  events; natural play areas."  The waterfront park committee has also compiled a host of  other pertinent information that  a designer would require, such  as geotechnical constraints, a  site survey, access and parking  details, use of adjoining waler-  lot recommendations and servicing information.  "There's obviously a lot of  work gone inlo it." said Gibsons  mayor F.ric Small after reviewing the request for proposals  and before council agreed lo  accept the "terms of reference"  set aside for bidders.  Anyone interested in more  information is urged to conlact  Susan Stratis at the town office.  Brighten  Someone's Day...

A final prolesi was staged at the cutblock  site last July wilh over 100 coasl residents  turning out to voice their disapproval of the  plan. The block, east of Roberts Creek, was  chosen last June as part of a forest service  experimental research project.  The trees were approximately 80 years  old.District foresl manager Greg Hemphill  said Friday the culling, described as extended rotation, "turned out really well."  Hemphill said windy weather late in Ihe  year has caused some excess blowdown but  "that was nol unexpected,"  The Grauman road cutblock is Ihe first in  a series experiments to be carried out under  Ihe silvicultural project.  Other methods lo be tested in the experiment include clearcut and modified shelter-  wood techniques. The second round of  experimentation will be carried out on  approximately three eight-hectare units in  the Mount Elphinstone area in 1995.  Officials al the forest service say the dala  collected from Ihis project will likely determine the future of small business plans for  this and other like areas.  Researchers working with the project will  be studying effects of forestry treatments on  hydrology, animal habitat and soil degradation. Economic viability will also be studied.  Meanwhile, Hemphill said the Mount  Elphinstone LRUP process will continue this  year.  isipeliaii)  i      i  Profession    Carpet  "/  dpholstery/&    j  Bare^loor/Cleoning .
