The Canadian Armed Forces naval sailboat recently returned from a  third-place finish In a race off the coast of Mexico. Joel Johnstone photo  Mary Shannon returns to Sechelt  by Darah Hansen  Mary Shannon, a 50-year resident of the Sunshine Coast, is  hack where she belongs.  The 91-year-old Halfmoon  Bay woman was moved into the  Shorncliffe intermediate care  facility in Sechelt on Thursday  after spending nearly four  months in a North Vancouver  facility while waiting placement  back on the Coast.  In an interview Thursday  afternoon, Shannon said she was  tired out from her move but definitely happy to be back "where I  belong."  "It's what I prayed and  dreamed of," she said.  "I'm never going lo leave the  Coasl again. This is the place I  plan to stay and die."  Shannon is one of several  seniors who have, over the years,  been forced off the Sunshine  Coast because local long-term  care facilities have not had the  room to house them.  Currently the Coast Garibaldi  Health Unit, of which the Sunshine Coast is a part, is below the  provincial average in number of  long-term beds available per  1000 people.  Rob Kolen, administrator of  both Shorncliffe in Sechelt and  Kiwanis Village Care Home in  Gibsons, said both Coast intermediate care facilities have made  application bids for expansion.  The waiting list for a room in  either care home is currently an  average of six-eight months. But  Kolen estimates that, without an  approval to expand, within the  next Iwo years there will he a  "massive shortage" of beds.  Kolen said the pressure for  expansion is coming from  retirees moving to the Coast at  age 55-65 and staying beyond  their capacity to care for themselves at home.  "More and more we're not  seeing the traditional Coasters  come in here (into intermediate  care) but those who have lived  here only 10-15 years."  Expansions will include up to  12 new beds for Kiwanis and 10-  20 at Shorncliffe.  Kolen estimated costs of construction lo run around $100,000  per bed.  Bill Benbow, a consultant  wilh ihe Ministry of Health, said  Friday (April 15), the Coast  Garibaldi area is listed as a "high  priority" for funding under to the  health ministry's five-year capital plan.  turn to page 2  Forest renewal  plan fosters  mixed reaction  by Darah Hansen  Local foresl workers and  environmentalists alike are  reacting with hesitation lo a  long-term forest renewal plan  announced by Premier Mike  Harcourt last week.  "We certainly agree with the  concept. It's long overdue," said  local International Woodworkers of America (IWA) representative Murray Cantelon in an  interview Friday (April 15), one  day after Harcourt's announcement.  "But, like any-     _____  thing, it will depend  on how it is implemented."  Harcourt's Forest Renewal Plan is  being heralded by  members  of the  NDP government  as an "unprecedented    partnership"     ������  between     forest  industry workers,  environmentalists, First Nations,  communities and government to  better manage BC's forests.  Under the plan, an estimated  $2 billion of new money will be  pumped into the silviculture  industry over the next five yean  to enhance the quality of newly  planted forests as well as  reverse put yean of forestry  neglect and abuse.  The money, a net increase of  about $400 million a year, is the  direct result "of ��o increase in  provincial stumpage fees for the  harvest of public timber effective May 1,1994. According to  the premier's office, the money  will be distributed "fairly"  throughout the entire province.  Job creation under the plan in  areas of forestry other than logging is expected to more than  offset any jobs lost by pending  provincial initiatives such as  protected area strategies and  park designation.  And while many environmental groups active in the  'It will depend  on bow it is  implemented'  -Murray Cantelon  province are expressing their  overall pleasure with what the  premier has presented, others  feel it doesn't go far enough to  protect the forests.  "We certainly think it's a  step in the right direction but  we're nol as enthused about it as  some of the more mainstream  groups," said Paul George of the  Western Canadian Wilderness  Committee.  George said his group's main  objections range from the  amount of money  _____    being   funnelled  into the new initiative ��� they think  it should be more  ��� to the lack of  specification on  second growth and  selection logging  activities.  "None of that is  ���������    really mentioned,"  said George.  The group also  argues the plan does nothing to  stop "damage" caused by future  clearcutting. The forest renewal  plan provides only for the cleanup from harmful forestry practices of the past.  Meanwhile, silvicultural contractors are wondering where  their business fits into the new  provincial scheme.  "Obviously the whole thing  sounds great from a silvicultural  point of view (but)..,l've mmi  no indication whatsoever on  how this thing is going to be  implemented," said Tony  Greenfield, owner of the  Sechelt-based silvicultural company Whiskeyjack.  "No where does it say how  the $400 million is going to be  spent ��� whether the major guys  like M and B (MacMillan  Bloedel) and Canfor are going  to be directly on the (government's) payroll or whether (the  work) is going to be done by  contractors."  Mary Shannon Is back on the Sunshine Coast, determined not to  leave again. Joel Johnstone photo  Construction ready to take flight on Rockwood's new wing  by Don Anderson  Work on the final phase of  Ihe Rockwood Centre could  begin as early as the fall.  "We could be breaking  ground as early as the fall, late  fall or beginning of next year,"  said John Vance, vice-president  of the centre.  "After the design elements  are pulled together, then the job  is to begin to do the architecture,  the working drawings and get a  building permit."  Vance said the new facility,  to be built on two acres of land  above the existing annex, could  cost as much as Sl .5 million, the  majority provided through fed  eral and provincial grams.  The centre has received preliminary approval of a grant  from Community Futures.  To date, the extent of the  grant has not been discussed  although Community Futures is  able to award a grant of up io  $800,000 to a single organization.  "We would like lo see facilities lhat will command the highest use and be most flexible in  terms of Ihe activities for Ihe  Coastal residents," said Vance.  A three-day design workshop  directed by Vancouver architect  Stan King will occupy Ihe cenlre  starting May 14.  King was responsible for  design concepts on False Creek  and Granville Island in Vancouver.  The workshop is primarily  for representatives of arts and  culture-related societies and arl  gallery curators on the Coast,  although an invitation has also  been forwarded to the Sechell  Indian Band.  The purpose of including  these groups is lo find out exactly whal their needs are and how  the new facility should be used.  Four artists will join King lo  assist in mapping oul artistically  whal people perceive the new  facility should look like.  "The artists really become a  conduit for the expression of  people's ideas so that what is  being designed reflects the characteristics or needs of the groups  that use Rockwood," Vance  said.  "One of (he problems lhat is  everywhere, virtually with all  facilities, is they end up being  inadequate for the people who  actually use them."  On May 16,60 students from  Grades five and six at Sechell  Elementary will take a walking  tour of Ihe lands and neighbouring properties and sketch oul  what they believe Ihe facility  and neighborhood should resemble. When ihe workshop has  concluded, the centre will have  a variety of "design elements"  corresponding to the types of  activities that will be held in the  new wing.  The centre and its consultants  will develop those elements and  incorporate several of the ideas  and patterns in the final design  of the facility.  The plan will then be presented to the public, either  ihrough a forum or survey.  "We will take il to the community rather than the communily always having to come to  us," Vance said.  ������-**---*->������-- ���-���������������>��� <���  ___  >! ������-'*'"-"-"��� ���  ���'iil.V't* ���������������� * ���  ^Hfvatomuhfof *.*%* ��a*��*m*m��*��*�� Coast News, April 18, 1994  FREE FILM or  2  ND  SET  OF PRINTS  WITH EVERY  FILM DEVELOPED  1 HR PHOTOS  5X7 PRINTS 99C  BUY, TRADE OR RENT  SEGA, SUPER NINTENDO  .:%  TRI ��� PHOTO  VSGGA)    1885-2882  \ ��� '''j      ���������������������������������������  103 -5710 TEREDO ST., SECHELT  news  A turn for the worst  All manner of vehicles are negotiating Illegal left turns al the re-routed junction of Cowrie Street and Highway 101.

Mayor's Hotline  ��  885-5360  Local Government Awareness Week  "Open House"  Every year the Provincial Government encourages local Governments to participate in  Local Government Awareness Month in order to facilitate the public being better informed  as to the workings of local government. This year Mayor Earl Basse has declared that the  week of April 18th - 22nd, 1994 will be Government Awareness Week within the  municipality.  In conjunction with this, the Community Liason Committee will be holding an "Open House"  at the Municipal Oflice on the following dates: Thursday, April 21st and Friday, April  22nd from 12:00 noon to 5:00 pm in the Council Chamber at the Municipal Hall 5545 Inlet  Avenue, Sechelt, B.C.  The general public is invited to drop in and ask questions of Councillors Michael Shanks  and Stan Dixon, who are members of the Community Liason Committee.  We look forward to a good response from the public.  Sechelt's Cowrie Street  realignment may change, again  by Don Anderson  The District of Sechelt is  considering legalizing left turns  at the notorious intersection al  the east end of Cowrie Street.  "I Ihink members of council  are thinking that perhaps the  left-hand turn situation is bad  where people are doing it, but  let's make it legal," said Councillor Mike Shanks.  "It certainly makes more  sense to have a left-turn lane  there."  The realignment of the  Cowrie/Wharf Road intersection  has become a major cause for  concern for motorists and local  RCMP since it was completed  just over a month ago.  Last week, police began issuing warnings to drivers ignoring  the No Left Turn sign, and are  threatening to begin issuing $85  tickets if the problem continues.  "If it persists we will be  forctd to go to the enforcement  aspect and start handing out  tickets, which I'm sure will  cause a lot of dissatisfaction  wilhin the community," said  Const. Mel Spielman.  For motorists travelling east  on Cowrie hoping to return to  the highway, the realignment  means having to either lurn off  at Trail Avenue, Inlet Avenue or  making an illegal left turn onto  Wharf. Most tend to end up at  the Cowrie/Wharf intersection  realizing Ihey have missed the  proper turn-off.  "It's a real nightmare," said  Paul Appell, engineering technician for the District of Sechelt.  It's a real pain  right now until  people get  used to it'  ���Paul Appell  "What (Ihe Ministry of Highways) wants is, of course, limited access. It's a real pain right  now until people get used to it  but that's what the ministry  wanted and the previous council  approved it."  Original realignment plans  included access to Wharf Streel  from Cowrie, with a stop sign  placed at Ihe intersection at ihe  end of Sechelt's main street.  "A year or so ago we looked  at being able lo drive down  Cowrie Street and then going on  the left hand side of the cenotaph," said Shanks.  However, Ihe ministry had  indicated it was planning lo'pul  a two-foot-high concrete barrier  down Ihe middle of Wharf  Street, thereby limiting access to  the highway from the left-hand  side of the cenotaph.  Shanks said making the left-  hand turn legal at the end of  Cowrie would also reduce a  potential increase in Ihe amount  of traffic heading down Inlet  Road and Dolphin Streel toward  Ihe highway.  "That makes more sense.  Why would you want to shift  people all Ihe way around  Wharf-Teredo-lnlct again?"  Shanks doesn't believe making the left-turn legal will  become a safety hazard for  motorisls, despite Ihe obvious  challenge of maneuvering  around the cenotaph.  Appelt said the District of  Sechelt will be putting signs up  ai'Cowrie and Trail streets- to>  direct traffic either norlh'or  south to Dolphin or to Trail, i  "Hopefully, people will pick  up on lhat and lhal will alleviate  some of the problems," Appelt  said.  The cost of realigning Ihe  intersection was paid for hy the  Ministry of Highways. Actual  cost figures were nol available  as of press lime.  IWA says employment a priority  from page 1  Greenfield said contractors  and silvicultural workers alike  are concerned with recent talk  about using newly created jobs  under the renewal plan to  employ out-of-work union loggers.  "We're Ihe trained work  force that's in place. We would  be concerned that 500 unem  ployed loggers aren't going to  replace 500 trained tree-  planters."  Cantelon said the IWA also  has problems with the logger-  cum-tree-planter idea.  "A person who's running a  machine, usually an older fellow  who's worked his way up...to  jusl have him scamper wildly  through the underbrush just isn't  in Ihe cards."  Cantelon said that while the  union is agreeable to bringing  tree planting and other silvicultural workers under Ihe umbrella organization of the IWA,  what the union is really looking  for wilh the new proposal is  "enhancing the employment  opportunities for loggers in logging related activities."  One long-time resident still in Vancouver  from page 1  It gets higher ranking lhan  other areas in ihe province  because of its current bed shortage.  Benbow added lhat receiving  money for long-term care expansions is based on more than a  simple mathematical calculation.  Community desire and understanding of need is also factored  inlo Ihe equation.

The driver and passenger were taken to St. Mary's after their vehicle left the road while heading down the hill. Rat Portage  Hill is one of several accident trouble areas between Port Mellon and Earls Cove. Joel Johnstone photo  Coast Highway 'inadequate, dangerous'  by Ian Cobb  The Sunshine Coast Highway, long an item of hot discussion on the Coast, is "very inadequate for the volume of traffic"  using it, a Sechelt RCMP detachment highway patrolman maintains.  More lhan 2,100 accidents  have occurred on the 152.5 kilometres of Highway 101 running  from Port Mellon to Earls Cove  and Saltery Bay to Lund between  1988 and 1992, Ministry of  Transportation and Highways  figures show.  A total of 14 people were  killed and 807 injured in the  2,118 accidents on Ihe two sections of highway during those  five years, according to a special  report compiled!by ministry Officials for Ihe Coast News,  The 93.6 km of highway from  Port Mellon to Earls Cove is by  far the more dangerous and more  heavily used section of road; 70  per cent of all accidents reported  occurred there.  The report indicates as well  lhat 78 per cent of all fatalities  and 70 per cent of all injury accidents occurred on that same  stretch of highway.  Four fatalities were recorded  on Ihe lower Sunshine Coast in  1988 and 1989, five in 1990, two  in 1991 and three in 1992.  One of the 1992 fatalities  involved a six-year-old boy who  was struck by a vehicle near the  Langdale Ferry terminal.  In addition, two people were  killed on the highway in 1993. A  40-year-old Egmont woman died  after the car she was driving  went off the road and hit a rock  embankment near Egmont and  another person was killed in a  two-car accident at Orange Road  and Highway 101.  So far one person, 14-year-  old Jaime Dew of Gibsons, has  died on the highway this year.  Dew was struck while crossing  the highway during a busy 6:30  p.m. ferry traffic rush near  Lower Road.  On a yearly basis, it appears  as though the accident rate on the  highway dropped from a peak of  395 in 1990 to 217 in 1992.  However, the ministry report  notes "the reportable accident  threshold was raised from $400  lo $1,000 in January of 1991." '  The statistics weren't surprising to Const. Kelly Watson of  the Sechelt RCMP detachment.  Stationed on the Coast for 18  months now, Watson said he  believes the Sunshine Coast  Highway to be "worse than most  places I've worked."  He said he worked the roadways in the Lower Mainland,  Vancouver Island and in the  Interior before arriving on the  Coast.  Here on the Coast, he sees "a  lot of infractions." The most  common are speeding, following  too closely and passing on a double yellow line.  "Enforcement is the only  thing that's going to bring it  down, or, if the province loosens  its purse-strings" and gets Ihe  highway upgraded and the Gibsons Bypass constructed to handle ferry traffic, he said.  Accidents occur most frequently at Rat Portage Hill, the  Pender Harbour area and at the  single set of traffic lights in  Sechelt, he said.  The south-bound, slow-traffic  passing lane al Rat Portage Hill,  just north of the Roberts Creek  Provincial Park campground,  creates all kinds of problems for  drivers, Watson said.  "People follow traffic for so  long without an opportunity to  pass," he said, noting that frustrations build and concentrations  drop at the site.  , The passing lane is "a kind of  band-aid solution" to help move  frequent bumper-to-bumper traffic highway. Ferry times are also  a serious problem, Watson said.  "It seems lo be every two  hours when you get the ferry  rush" that speeding incidents  rise, he said.  "It's a problem, especially in  the summer, when you get  greater volumes of traffic, and  especially for residents," he said.  "It's not unusual to get people  going 100 kilometres per hour in  a 50 zone," he said, naming  North Road in Gibsons as a place  where speeders race for the ferry.

And it seems likely that another long-time Coast resident,  Queenie Burrows, also will return to the Coast from a seniors'  care facility in North Vancouver.  Ruth Forrester, the Coast News' community columnist for  Halfmoon Bay, focused public attention on the plight of her  friends, who were unable to get beds in Coast facilities because  of a provincially established waiting-list system which gives no  preference to long-term residents of an area for such care.  Since then, several Coast residents have phoned Ihis newspaper to say they have signed and sent out to Premier Mike Harcourt the coupon we published in the April 11 issue of the newspaper, urging him to make it possible for Shannon and Burrows  to return to facilities here, where they can be among friends. To  those people who senl in their coupons, our thanks.  The Coast News docs not, cannot, claim credit for Mary  Shannon's return to the Coast, although we would like lo think  our public two-cents' worth ��� two news stories and the above-  mentioned editorial appeal lo members of the community lo  make their feelings known to the Premier ��� helped in some  small way to resolve Ihe matter more quickly than might otherwise have been done.  However, it appears that the attention drawn by the plight of  Shannon and Burrows has had another effect ��� thrown light on  the fact that the Coast Garibaldi health region is actually below  the provincial average in the number of available long-term care  beds. Waiting time for those currently available runs between six  and eight months.  That, in turn, should make it clear to the powers that be just  how urgently those extra beds ��� the local Kiwanis facility is  seeking 12 new beds and Shorncliffe 10-20 ��� are needed here  on the Coast.  If our pioneer seniors are not to be given preference on the  waiting list, then at least there should be enough beds to ensure  they don't have to wait. Surely we owe them that much.  Seeing the forest for  the trees to be  The fact that neither of the mostly polarized sides in the logging debate have drawn their long knives over the provincial  government's forest renewal program is a hopeful sign.

And il is particularly gratifying to see"  tie woodworkers' union recognizing that something had to, has  to be, done on that front.  There are, of course, some legitimate concerns arising out of  the government's plan in its not yet totally unfolded state.  Higher stumpage fees are clearly a necessity to raise the  money needed to re-forest those areas that have been logged.  The higher charges should not seriously hamper the operation of  most companies since the price at which they are selling wood  on the world market is climbing in relation to the growing scarcity of the product.  However, it may be necessary to apply the increased  stumpage charges for smaller companies differently to ensure  that we don't put them out of business, leaving the forest entirely  to the largest logging operations. That will be the real challenge.  Still, at this point, people are only asking questions, not trying  to draw blood. And that in itself bodes well for the plan.  letters  Chamber talk$ back  Although the Sechell Chamber of Commerce does not normally respond to anonymous letters, I feel that the one you printed regarding Sechelt Chamber  finances contained so many  errors that we would be irresponsible nol to reply.  1. The Chamber has never  announced that it did not receive  a grant for 1993. We received  $15,000 from the District of  Sechelt as a 'fee for service' for  operating the Travel InfoCentre  (TIC) and Business Information  Centre (BIC). We did not receive  extra monies resulting from the  doubling of the business licence  fees in 1993; the District of  Sechelt retained that income.  In 1994 the Chamber will  receive approximately $52,000  (or 80 per cent of business  licence fees) from the District of  Sechelt of which 40 per cent or  $20,800 must go directly to the  Economic Development Committee (a new fee for service  agreement). The remainder goes  to operate the BIC and TIC.   '  2. The council is not awarding  the Chamber $44,000 each quarter. The $44,000 we received in  March was the amount of business licence fees collected to that  date. As funds from late payments come in, the Chamber will  receive their 80 per cent.  3. Whit did the Chamber do  with last year's grant? In a nutshell:  Every day that the TIC was  open (220 days) it encouraged  (on average) 28 visitor parties to ,  stay and spend their time and  money in Sechell. Each party  represents 2.5 people, each of  whom spends $57 per day for a  total of $877,800 if they all jusl  stayed one day. Not a bad return  on the taxpayers' investment.  The BIC was open for 192  days during 1993 and assisted  1,306 entrepreneurs and existing  business people in their efforts to  establish or improve a Sechelt  business. Our tax base will  broaden significantly if even 10  per cenl of these new businesses  become operational.  4. Is there any accounting for  tax dollars received by the  Chamber?  The Chamber's projected budget and previous year's income  statement are submitted on a  yearly basis to the District of  Sechelt, Ministry of Tourism and  at the annual general meeting for  Chamber members.  5. Why does the Chamber  have a say in economic development? It is quite logical for an  organization whose mandate is io  promote economic development  to enter a fee for servjpp j)gr?er  ment with the district to prepare  and coordinate the implementation of an economic strategy. It  would be impossible to hire an  economic development officer  for the $20,800 that the Chamber  will receive for their efforts.  6. Just look at who is on ihe  board of directors. The 16 board  members represent a cross section of community businesses  which include banking, insurance, real estate, golf tourism,  property appraisals, small business, teaching and media. No one  is perfect, but it seems unfair to  criticize a group of people who  give their best and donate over  5,000 volunteer hours to their  community. The well informed  are fully aware that Ihe direction  of this board is toward economic  development for Sechelt.  7. No one has been forced to  pay for Chamber membership  and no one is forced to belong to  the Chamber. Anyone who holds  a business licence has the right to  activate their membership in'Ihe  Chamber Witt m> charge!   ,t..(;.  8.

GORDON L. WILSON,  lalaailO la i ��� President  Sothtlt & District Chamber of  Commerce  Sweet reason  RE: Musings, April 4. Thank  you John for your "Does democracy have this dangerous Achilles  heel?" in which you state the  choice is not one of jobs versus  conservation, but conservation  for long term employment. Ah,  the voice of reason. How sweet  Ihe sound.  But can the government afford  to look beyond the next election?  H.COSTERTON  SecheH  Classic soft rock got in and gummed up my radio  My hand happened to bump the 'seek' button on  my car stereo last week and suddenly I was listening  to a 'golden oldies' station. Wait a minute, they're  not called that any more, are they? You can't use the  word 'old' in front of a yuppie culture.  These stations now operate under new  euphemisms: there's a slightly different marketing  correctness at work here. They' are 'classic rock' or  'soft rock' stations.  Now, don't gel me wrong; I like (not soft) rock  music (along wilh several other kinds) but as a rule,  the 'classic rock' stations leave me cold. Nevertheless, I decided to slay wilh the one I had accidentally  tuned in, just lo hear what I might hear. Actually, I  wasn't sure there was anything else on ihe dial since  the car radio simply sits on CBC, like the utility it is.  For a few minutes, it was...all right. I guess.  They played Louie, Louie by the Kingsmcn. one of  Ihe earliest and silliest of the original rock anthems.  "Lou-ah. Lou-ay  Woe. woe oh woe  Where you gonna go now?"  I giggled a bit (no mean feat), thinking of a friend  who has collected more than 100 different versions  of lhal same song, including one choral arrangement  in ihe baroque style. But then the "hits just kept right  on a'comin'," to quote the deejay and before I knew  it, I was squirming uncomfortably in my seat and  reaching for radio dial again. Total time tolerated ���  20 minules.  The problem for me is lhal classic rock stations  focus on 'older music' which for them means stuff  between the lines  that would normally have been a part of either my  early or late adolescence, or my early 20s at the latest.  These stations are not playing this music because  ihey think I will like it; they are playing it because  they hope it will appeal to me emotionally; that it  will trigger in their listeners memories of the glory  days of iheir youth. That having been done, ihe programmers theorize, the listeners will become emotionally ��� no, atavistically ��� incapable of changing  the dial, of leaving the never-ending cycle of noslal-  gia.  Thai's what turns me off, not the music ��� the  assumption thai all of us are frozen in ihis kind of  backward-looking picture which extends back no  further than our coming of age.  What this music doesn't do is challenge ihe listener wilh anything news ��� "the hits jusl keep right  on a'comin'!" You will always hear a song that's  familiar, either from your youth, or from your having heard it played on thai same station the day or  week before.  larry marshal!  And, of course, il is all from Ihe white pop-rock  genre which can go back no further than when it was  invented, the 1950s.  You don't have to worry about being challenged  by original blues or jazz from the 1930s or '40s, or  old Texas swing, or ethnic music ��� "the hits just  keep right on a'comin'."  Not on my radio, buddy. That's why I tune into  CBC and carry cassettes. Now how about some real  rockin' music by (before my time) Big Joe Turner?  It's better lhan nostalgia.  ���  Good news, bid news: I have a long-time fascination with serial killers and what makes them tick  ��� which is how I came to be watching an Arts and  Entertainment Network investigative report about  Russia's so-called 'Red Ripper.'  Andrei Chikatelo tortured, mutilated and murdered a total of 53 young men, women and children  between 1978 and 1990, a time period which  spanned both the 'old' totalitarian regime and the  new, more liberal form of government (relatively  speaking) which succeeded it.  Soviet police were confused by Chikatelo, whose  selection of victims and methods of killing varied  widely; because of that, police on more than one  occasion believed the murders were being committed by several different perpetrators. Soviet police  forces also found themselves in the same kind of  predicament in which American police forces found  themselves when they first encountered serial killers  ��� local departments working in geographic isolation and interdepartmental rivalries were at a disadvantage in dealing with a murderer who selected victims al random and operated across several law  enforcement jurisdictions.  However, I was startled to hear, so soon afler  wriling aboul why newspapers carry bad news, that  Russian newspapers operating under Ihe old regime  were being blamed for failing to publicize the existence of the mass-killer.  According to ihis particular TV documentary,  police had many times tried to interest newspapers  in publicizing the existence of ihis killer (or killers),  but Ihey, out of a sense of self-preservation, refused  to do so.  The safe way lo operate under the Soviet regime  was to publish party-approved press releases  and.. .good news. Obviously, Chikatelo fell inlo neither category.  Because of that, Chikatelo was able lo operate a  good deal longer ��� and kill that many more people  ��� than if the newspapers had made known his presence and ihe extent of his violent crimes.

G. DOUGLAS  Kiwanis Way, Gibsons  Wildlife then...  The present generation can  have no conception of Ihe  tremendous numbers of wildlife  to be found on this coast in the  days before the white man  came, and for years afterwards.  The salmon that went up the  creeks in the fall did so in unbelievable numbers.  In 1915, I was at the mouth  of Chaster Creek and the salmon  were going up in such numbers  that I swear there were more  fish than water in the creek. A  few years ago a fisheries official  was there to count the fish going  up the creek and he counted 30.  Before the first World War, I  went to school with a lad from  Langdale. He talked about the  great numbers of salmon that  went up Langdale Creek in the  fall. About 40 years afterwards,  I took my son and daughters  there to see Ihe salmon going up  the creek.  Went up and down that creek  and finally found one!  Father would take me fishing  with him when I was a youngster and talking with mother  years afterwards, she said we  never came home skunked. We  always had fish.  Some interesting things happened on some of those trips.  One day we saw a pod of Ihe  large whales.  Not Ihe little killer whales,  but the real big fellows. They  were out there besporting themselves; when they surfaced, they  blew their breath out with  tremendous force, and inhaled  very quickly, then one would lift  its huge tail up into the air and  pour itself straight down.  One day we saw a little  steamer wilh a harpoon gun in  the bow. It wasn't long before  the big whales were wiped oul  from the Gulf of Georgia. There  was a whaling station on one of  the islands between Keats and  Bowen.  Another time we were coming back from fishing. We saw  an Indian in a canoe with a pile  of brush in front of him for camouflage and he was quietly moving up to the right of ducks. A  whole acre or so covered with  ducks, a sight that cannot be  seen nowadays. When he got  close enough, out came the old  shotgun and...bang! bang! An  oldtimer was standing on the  wharf and he said, "Well, he's  got his breakfast."  It's the same story with the  blue grouse. They were in great  numbers in the old days. How  many of you who read this have  seen a blue grouse?  The white man is the most  destructive animal that has come  to this part of the world.  WILJO WIREN  Gibsons  Old-growth  dissension  Upon reading an article in the  Coast News in the March '31  edition entitled Ban All Tet  Logging, urges Old Growth  Subcommittee, I felt a letter to  the editor of both Sunshine  Coast newspapers come to  mind.  A few crucial flaws with this  piece of journalistic grandstanding should be pointed out.  Firstly, there are four members in ihe old growth subcommittee of the Tetrahedron  LRUP. The main reason why  the last member of the subcommittee was not mentioned is that  he, or rather myself, did not  agree with the findings of the  subcommittee of the whole. It  seems that my position as a  member of the forest industrial  sector does nol count since it is  generally in opposition with the  other members.  It was this writer's contention that from my first joining the ranks of the old growth  subcommittee some year and a  half ago that meaningful discussion of multiple use and visions  of consensus-building would be  the final goals of our group to  other members involved in this  planning process.  Au contraire.  The original three members  interviewed in the Coast News  article came to the table with  one purpose and that was to protect the Tetrahedron Plateau  from any timber harvesting, no  matter what the cost.  Discussions involving social-  PENDER HARBOUR FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT  ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING  Sunday, April 84th, 1994 at 2:00 pm  MADEIRA PARK ORE HALL  1) Financial Statements  2) Appointment of Auditor  3) Election of two Trustees  4) Other Business  HIIUCINVITID  FLORA SIM  SECRETARY TREASURER  economic impacts on ihe Sunshine Coast community and displaced workers matter little to  these three members who do nol  make Iheir living in the forest  sector. Nor did recommendations of compromise, such as  maintaining biodiversity corridors and preservation of riparian  zones (recommended by other  subcommittees), make any difference. Instead, examples were  cited from Scotland, Australia  and the Mediterranean of past  poor practices that have gone  wrong.  What about some of the good  examples of forestry in action in  BC that maintain that forestry  and other resource users can live  in harmony without compromising the environment? The examples are many.  I contend (and always will)  that the forest industry came to  the planning table honestly willing to try and reach a workable  consensus on future timber harvesting in the Tetrahedron. The  industry recognizes the need for  multiple resource use and compatibility and will work with,  Other agencies and groups to  reach this end.: j    .(inun  My fellow colleagues came  to the table wilh the selfish  thought of total preservation at  any cost.

'94  3 & 4 year olds  SATURDAY APRIL 30  10am ��� 12 noon Jack & Jill Preschool  Harmony Une, Gibsons 886-9417 or 886-3923  Vehicle check stops conducted along the Coasl highway for  the last couple or weeks have  yielded a surprising number of  unsafe private molor vehicles, an  RCMP highway patrol officer  says.  "We've found lots of stuff,"  said Sechelt RCMP highway  patrol Const. Kelly Watson. He  and Motor Vehicles Branch  (MVB) officials have been  checking both commercial and  private vehicles in the Gibsons,  Sechell and Pender Harbour  areas.  While the checks were originally designed lo check commercial vehicles, the officers opted  to also check out suspicious  looking or sounding privale vehicles and in doing so, they've  uncovered numerous faulty road-  bound vehicles.  On April 7 a check was held  in Sechelt wilh about 100 vehicles pulled over. Sixty-five were  commercial (semi-trailer, gravel  and logging trucks) and 35 were  private. Oul of that number, 33  received tickets, including some  for overweight loads. Thirty-  eight warnings and 12 "notice in  orders" also were issued. Using  those numbers, police concluded  that 83 per cenl of all vehicles  stopped were defective or below  sel commercial traffic standards  lo some degree.  A notice in order, Watson  said, is issued when a vehicle i.s  in such bad shape lhat Ihe owner  must be immediately ordered to  take the vehicle to either a local  garage for repairs or lo an RCMP  inspection station where it can be  repaired.  'With some it was  amazing that they  were even able to get  down the road'  -Kelly Watson  "Some just had a volume of  defects thai we ordered them in,"  Walson said, listing faulty  brakes, steering columns, tires  and lights. "Wilh some il was  amazing thai they were even able  to get down ihe road."  "The privale vehicles were  pretty bad," Watson said, adding  that he figured many Coast  drivers must think Ihe police will  only check commercial vehicles.  In fact, the commercial vehi  cles fared surprisingly well, he  said.  "One thing we noted was Ihe  operators of commercial vehicles  are pulling in a pretty good effort  to keep their vehicles up...better  than in the past."  Watson said the numbers can  be deceiving unless il's known  that it isn't just a random check  of privale vehicles passing by.  "We're selective," he said.  "We're.nol jusl taking anyone.  We would wave a lot (vehicles)  by and that's why Ihe percentage  is so high. If il looks okay at first  glance we'd let ihem Ihrough."  While it was more likely that  a 1993 or 1994 car or half-Ion  would be waved Ihrough without  much of a look, Walson said nol  all older cars are in bad shape.

Joel Johnstone pholo  Local air  service  grounds  out  by Darah Hansen  Flights oul of Sechell were  unexpectedly cancelled late lasl  week as Ihe float plane company  Venture Pacific Airways Ltd.  folded ils business wings.  The small airline ��� owned  and operated oul of Vancouver  by entrepreneur Murray Pezim  ��� ceased all operations as of  noon Friday (April 15),    , ,  Venture Pacific employee  Ross Ireland confirmed Friday's  shut-down, adding there were no  immediate plans to start up business again.  Ireland would nol discuss Ihe  company's financial situation in  greater detail.  The closure of Ihe company  has meant a loss of jobs, including three positions at its office in  Sechelt, where the company  originated regularly scheduled  runs lo Vancouver Island.  Venture Pacific base manager in Sechelt, Louise Rolland,  said the "cease of operations"  order from the Vancouver office  came as a "surprise," bul  declined further comment.  Meanwhile, several passengers who were left stranded by  Venture Pacific's announcement  Friday were transported lo their  destinations later lhat same day  by a Nanaimo-based airline,  Baxter Aviation Ltd.  Baxter Aviation owner Tom  Baxter said his company is  examining the possibility of filling Ihe business space left  vacant by Venture Pacific. He  said there is a "definite demand  for service" in the area.  Venture Pacific is Ihe latest  in a string of airlines to operate  oul of Ihe office in Sechell since  Tyee Air, a charier company  owned primarily by Ihe Sechelt  Indian Band, folded in 1993.  Got a  news story?  Call the  COAST  NEWS!  ���  in Sechelt  885-3930  in Gibsons  886-2622 news  Rejection of funding request  spurred one-government idea  A news backgrounder  by Ian Cobb  There's nothing new about  Ihe idea of one government for  the Sunshine Coast.  In fact, the concept has been  around since the 1960s, said former Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) board of directors chair David Hunter.  However, it wasn't until 1981  ��� when Hunter and a group of  SCRD directors travelled lo Victoria to lobby the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs about extending a sewer system from Gibsons to Langdale ��� that ministry officials told the Coast  politicians that aid for services  would likely not be given until  Ihe Sunshine Coast streamlined  its governmental structure.  "lie (Ihen-depuly minister of  Municipal Affairs) said in mid-  conversation, 'Do you realize  you've got too many governments up there?' lie said we  should irim our governments  down before the government  would provide aid in services,"  Hunter said.  The SCRD directors returned  to the Coast and held a meeting  to discuss a change in the governmental make-up of the Coasl.  Brian Stelk, who was then a  director for Sechelt, outlined  five scenarios; One government;  Iwo governments; two governments plus Pender Harbour; two  governments, Pender Harbour  and Roberls Creek; and "as is,"  Hunler recalled.  One government was seen as  an option that would provide  "considerable savings of  money," Hunter said. The two-  government option wasn't "far  behind, but we were worried  about Roberts Creek and Pender  Harbour."  As the talks dragged on over  the years, "Sechelt went ahead  and did Iheir thing for one government in the area," Huntei  said.  The resulj \yas Ihe incorporation of Sechell.  After that, Hunter said, the  impetus was lost.  Talks of one government  resurfaced in 1991 when former  Sechelt mayor Nancy MacLarty  and Gibsons mayor Eric Small  got the ball rolling.  "We had to drag the regional  district" back inlo Ihe discussions, MacLarty said. A meeting  was eventually held at the Bella  Beach Motel in Davis Bay and  "Eric and I kept pushing them to  have more meetings," she said.  The provincial government  was as supportive of the idea  then as they were in 1981, she  said, recalling thai its officials  offered to pay for a facilitator  then, as Ihey arc now, and lhat  "the regional district kept getting in Ihe way."  Hunter said the 1991 initiative "was doomed from Ihe  beginning," citing the addition  of "too many neophytes" to the  discussion table.  The government was more  than willing to help, MacLarty  said. "They more or less intimated that if we didn't do it, they  would."  And now ��� with talks resurfacing after a March 25 meeting  between Gibsons, Sechelt,  SCRD and Municipal Affairs  officials and an agreement to  continue discussions ��� Hunler  said he believes there's a good  chance progress will finally be  made.  "I think parochial interests  are leaving us now," he said.  I  iff!  Firearms course may be shot down  by Don Anderson  Capilano College in North  Vancouver is threatening to cancel the first-ever organized  Canadian Firearms Safety  Course on the Sunshine Coast.  According to Bill Ellis, president of the Sunshine Coast Rod  and Gun Club, the college does  not want its name associated  wilh a course on firearms safety  because il promotes gun use.  "I feel the people responsible  for quashing Ihe program were  working more out of paranoia  and misinformation lhan out of  good, common sense," Ellis  said, after being lold aboul Ihe  planned cancellation last week.  "As a member and president  of the gun club, I'm really upset  that people don'l want lo accept  firearms safety."  Ellis said the firsl firearms  safety course was scheduled to  start April 23 and run for two  days at the Capilano College  campus in Sechelt. Another was  to be held in May.  He said distribution of  brochures had been arranged for  in advance of Ihe cancellation.  "The unfortunate pari was the  course was being offered al  quite a bit of a saving (to participants)." he said.  A similar course is offered  Ihrough private instruction in  Vancouver, bul nol on the Coasl.  "I really Ihink you should  have a choice," Ellis said.  "What do we have up here?  We don't have access to facilities lhal you can rent (for training)....! really feel there has  been an infringement on  firearms safely and on Ihe access  of what people want lo learn."  Ellis claims officials at Ihe  college felt the course would tarnish the image of the institution.  But upon inquiry, Louise  Krohn, director of extension and  contract services at the college,  denied the course had been cancelled.  "Il's on hold and that is whal  I told Bill," she said by telephone from her office in North  Vancouver Friday.  "We haven't finished the  review process yet."  Krohn denied lhat there had  been any indication by the board  of directors or other representatives of the college that the  firearms course was an unwelcome addition lo ils curriculum.  "I can't tell you whether it is  a problem or nol; we are still  going through the process of  reviewing it," she said.  The course will be reviewed  by the board of directors at ils  April 28 meeting, and may  include a decision by the president of the college, if necessary,  on recommendation of the  board.  New firearms legislation  came into effect Jan. 1. It now  requires Canadians applying for  a Firearms Acquisition Certificate (FAC) to successfully complete a course or test in the safe  handling and use of firearms and  to understand the laws relating  to them.  Ellis was encouraging parents  to enroll their children in the  classroom course to ensure they  know that if they come in con-'  tact with a firearm, they are  dealing with something danger-  Coast News, April 18, 1994 7  filK%inc,&nq **��� ,  .

They are attractive, crafted  out of the yellow cedar common  to Ihe Coasl, and in harmony  with their woodland environment. The casual observer, out  for an evening stroll, saw no  fancy equipment, no sign that  workers had been on Ihe job  each day, other lhan the slow  steady growth of Ihe bridge  spanning the swollen creeks.  In Ihe last two and a half  years, six similar replacement  bridges have appeared in Cliff  Gilker Park, along wilh benches  and trail signs. Of course, they  were not actually produced by  foresl sprites. Instead, the hardworking SCRD parks crew,  made up of John Miller, Jay  Jares and Charles Hogg, is  responsible for all aspects of  maintenance, site developmeni  and minor improvements in the  regional district's 19 parks.  "This crew has design exper  tise in bridges," says supervisor  Steve Alexander. "Two have  extensive logging experience ���  how to fall a tree, notching and  cutting, consideration of stress  loads. It's like building a log  cabin. Bul mostly it requires  good common sense and creativity."  Alexander describes one  bridge in which support beams  hook onto an existing stump,  then swing out to join a handrail  ��� an engineering detail lhat  exactly suits its location.  "We use all natural, raw  materials, for aesthetics and also  for economy. No concrete or  metals."  Many of the materials are  'found' on site, either from  blowdowns, or recycled from  previous projects. The decking  may be purchased or it may be  hand-hewn shake blocks. Many  of the posts and beams are  scouted from driftwood on park  beaches.  Halfmoon Bay's Connor  Park displays improvements of a  different variety: Iwo baseball  diamonds, a soccer field and an  eight-lane sprinter's training  track.  The concept and design of  such sport fields and playgrounds also requires creativity,  says Alexander.  "You must consider what  surrounds the area, the availability of water or hydro, what kind  of apparatus is required and how  to involve the community so  that it reflects their needs."  Fortunately, communily  input is not difficult to obtain.  At the first sound of brush or  trees being cleared away, concerned neighbours are on the  phone protecting their home.  They usually relax on learning  lhal il is parks crew activity and  are happy to make suggestions  for Ihe location of benches,  trails or swings. Alexander  points to an example of a small  park in Grandview Heights  that's "just for Ihe neighbourhood lo enjoy."  Another successful parks  project involves the only truly  waterfront house on Ocean  Local Government  Awareness Program '94  You and Your Community!  Beach Esplanade near Gibsons.  Chaster House is a renovated,  re-roofed, old-timer lhat has had  new gutters, washrooms and a  canopy added. The former living room was enlarged to provide a meeting room, available  for community use.  ���This is one of a series of  articles for Local Government  Awareness Month, sponsored by  your local governments and Ihe  Sunshine Coasl News.  Sunshine Coast Raging Grannies rage again  The Coast's own Raging  Grannies, who will be performing at the Earth Day celebration  on Sunday, April 24 at Cliff  Gilker Park, will also be adding  to our tree population by planting a special tree as a commemorative Earth Day gesture. Following are a few lines from one  of their songs (sung to the tune  of Comin' Round the Mountain).  "Il's a happy Earth Day Party  You all come.  We will walk instead of riding  You all come.  We will try lo be good teachers  Working for all living creatures  Al our Happy Earth Day Party,  You all come!"  A reminder to the public:  there will be no parking at the  park lot, so please park on  Roberls Creek Road and walk  over. And lo drivers ��� please  nse extreme caution on the highway that day.

How many prescriptions  for pharmaceutical drugs contain substances of plant origin?  a) one per cent b) 25 per cent  c) 17 per cent.  Answer: 25 per cent. New  drugs continue to be developed  from active chemicals extracted  from plants.  That is one of ihe reasons  lhat culling down forests, bolh  in the tropics and here at home,  is so dangerous for our long-  term health. Who knows what  other miraculous substances  might be discovered in plants  The 16th ANNUAL AMI FOOL'S RUN is wer and  was one of the best yet. O/er 100 people participated in  the event with many more support people involved. The  chanses and improvements to the mn/walk reflect our  desire to continue to enhance the event, and in turn,  promote healthier lifestyles. It is very important to  recognize all the volunteer hours that go into the  operation of the events. We thank them all for their  efforts. There is also a long list of businesses which  directly supported the event with materials, time and  prizes.

What common garden  flower has a relative that helps  treat heart disorders?  a) rose b) foxglove c) daisy.  Answer: Foxglove. A relative  of the foxglove, Digitalis  lanota, is a source of digoxin,  used to treat heart disorders.  Unlike many active ingredients  from plants, which are synthesized chemically for mass production in drugs, digoxin is still  extracted from the actual plant.  3. The annual migration path  of the arctic tern is longer than  that of any bird in Ihe world.  How far does it travel?  a) from north pole to south  pole b) from north pole to Florida c) from noi'h pole lo Mexico  Answer: From north pole to  south pole. Bird migration is a  good example of why environmental protection is an international issue.  Even if we were doing every-  thing right in Canada, those  birds that summer here wouldn't  survive the winters if the forests  were still being destroyed in  places like Honduras, Venezuela  and Brazil.  4. It is a Canadian predator  that figures in campfire lore for  its mysterious ways and powerful jaws. Sometimes called a  'devil beast' and a 'skunk bear,'  what is this weasel's name?  a) wolf b) black bear c)  wolverine  Answer: Wolverine. The  wolverine's current range is  over much of northern and western Canada.  Settlement has forced it from  Ihe southern and eastern parts of  the country.  It is the largest land weasel in  Canada; wolverines are about  three feet long and weigh an  average of 40 pounds.  5. Which idiom best expresses why biodiversity is important?  a) don't cry over spilt milk b)  don't put all your eggs in one  basket c) don't put the cart  before Ihe horse.  Answer: Don't put all your  eggs in one basket. Biodiversity  means Ihe genetic variety of all  plant and animal species. It is  important because if we allow  some species to become extinct,  we are putting all our genetic  Wilh over 120 realtors  on the coait,  who do you choose?  i  \_____  mnnp   hp nnh  NEIL SANDY  -vii��aiiiamCmH)iiWnr  OHIOK(t04)Mt-M70 (24 hn)  Hom��(M4)MM3H  Van.

One of the most magnificent river systems in the world  is the Tatshenshini-Alsek in  northwestern British Columbia.  In 1993, almost one million  hectares of the Tatshenshini  were designated a provincial  park and so protected from all  future development. What  helped convince the BC government to protect il?  a) Ihe premier loves canoeing  Ihe river b) a letter-writing campaign by thousands of Canadians and Americans c) an American military base  Answer: Thousands of letters. The premier's office lold  WWF they had never seen so  many letters for any conservation campaign...and they just  kept coming, bags al a time, for  four years.  People who want to save  some of nature for the future can  always take consolation in Ihe  fact lhat in our democratic system, letters count.  7. Powdered bear gall bladder is such a popular ingredient  in oriental medicines lhat il has  led lo the virtual extinction of  Asian bears. As a result, the  practice of 'laundering gall  bladders' has grown. Whal does  ihe phrase mean?  a) passing off dried Canadian  black bear gall bladder for an  Asian brown bear gall bladder  b) washing gall bladders before  they arc dried and powdered c)  substituting soap powder for  gall bladder in potions.  Answer: passing off a Canadian bear gall bladder.  Thousands of Canadian black  bears are being hunted for their  gall bladders which are dried  and smuggled out of Canada to  Ihe orient where they are sold as  Asian bear gall bladders. It is  illegal lo irade in wildlife parti,  but laws haven't stopped Ihe  lucrative irade. Over-hunting  could wipe out Canada's bean,  as il has Asia's.  ____________________________  mem  MM  _____ Coast News, April 18, 1994  (Si&soiS  feDistrictl  CHAMBER OF  COMMERCE  ft  th Annual Gibsons & District  Gibsons  Curling  Rink  Hwy. 101  rade  Saturday, April 23        Sunday, April 24  10am-7pm 11am-4pm  air  Adults $3  Students & Seniors $2  Children Under 12 Free  Official Opening - 10:30am Saturday  Mayor Eric Small assisted by Miss Gibsons,  Kristin Braun  IM!

As well as 'observing,'  Karen has held a class of her own in Spanish  dancing for a number of enthusiastic participants.  A postcard from Karen shows the stage  and sealing of the Stratford Festival thealre. It  was designed by the renowned Tyrone  Guthrie, the producer/director who founded  the festival in Stratford, Ontario in 1953. The  thealre "re-introduces Shakespeare's thrust  stage" surrounded by audience sealing on  Ihree sides. None of the seats are more lhan  65 feel from Ihe stage.  Each member of the audience can feel he  or she is in the midst of the play's aclion in a  theatre like this one.  Karen returns lo Gibsons in May.  Pianist  Among the children taking pari in our  Sunshine Coast Festival is 11-year-old Mark  Andrews who has made astonishing progress  in his pianoforte studies which began when  he was just Iwo years old.  Jessie Morrison, a teacher of piano for  many years in Gibsons, said to Mark's parents, Rick and Terry Andrews: "That boy is  ready for lessons" when she observed his  musical ability at thai age.  For the past several years Mark has been a  student of Ihe well known Vancouver teacher  of music, Edward Parker. Parker's nephew  and former pupil, Jon Kimura Parker, is an  internationally renowned pianist, soon to be  heard in concert again in Vancouver.  Mark Andrews will lake the Grade IX  examination of the Royal Conservatory of  Music this June.

This week, driving around the  Creek, I have seen many projects  on the go and nearing completion. For one, the Roberls Creek  General Slore is using the full  facilities and just about completed re-organizing the store itself.  The parking lot has been paved  and is ready for complete use.  The staff remind you thai lime is  running out for time capsule  items. A little further along construction at Ihe school is really  moving along and should be  completed in early May.  A new road has been constructed just off Blackburn and is  now known as Robinson. Apparently the area has been subdivided and soon houses will be built.  The lol on which Ihe historical  St. Aidan's Church sits has now  been sold and soon we will see  changes taking place.  The fire hall properly has also  undergone a real cleanup and  looks ready for landscaping.  *  sechelt scenario  by Deanna Lueder, 885-7365  The village is definitely getting busier both as we move into  Ihe tourist season, and with an  increasing residential population.  A friend recently went to have  his hair cut and was amazed to  have to park a block and a half  from the barber shop.  We've all been used to pulling  up in front of whatever outlet we  are visiting and Ihe adjustment to  a busier community is sometimes  painful.  We are grappling with many  problems as a community. Just  read the headlines: arsenic in  well water, sewage disposal,  Chapman Creek watershed, Port  Stalashen, SPCA, new highway,  increasing crime, racism, overlapping governments, McDonald's.  Every heading refers lo often  controversial issues or ongqing  problems which all suggest wc  are no longer, or maybe never  were, Ihe peaceful village so  many of us first fell in love with.  However, Ihey also suggest we  are a vital, concerned community  with many of our citizens trying  dockside davis bay  I have also noticed that the  RCMP have been busy on their  bicycles patrolling the area and  watching for speeders.  RCCA  Living in Ihe Creek is a real  treat especially if you have spent  many long busy years in the city.  The area is unique and certainly  has a style all of its own. Buy  hey, in order to maintain lhal  style, we must be prepared to  lend a hand, helping with the  upkeep, decisions and growth of  our community.  We are fortunate to have a  very hard-working community  association but unfortunately, we  do not have very many community members who lend support.  On Wednesday, April 27 at 7:30  pm the Roberts Creek Community Association will hold its annual general meeting and election  of officers. This is a perfect  opportunity for old and new  Creekers to come out to lend  their support and ideas.  Library news  Given all our talk of adult  books, you may have wondered  if the youngsters are neglected in  our book buying. Not so. A good  third of our budget goes to the  juvenile collection and it is in  excellent shape. If it goes  unmentioned...well, how many  small children do you know who  read the papers?  There are some specialized  groups: special-needs books for  the linies; special-needs books,  such as Going to Hospital or  Saying Goodbye to Grandma,  good reading for the subteens  and older; and a really fine collection for the preschoolers and  junior grades. Besides this we  offer a good range of junior non-  fiction, as a for-instance, considering Ihe time of year (attention  all you Little Leaguers), we suggest Belter Baseball For Boys  and Help on Being The Besl on  Ihe Baseball Field, which is  aimed at catchers, or How lo  Play Girls Softball.  Craft classes  Every Saturday from 10 am to  noon craft classes for five- to  nine-year-olds are being held.  Crafts on birdhouses, beadwork,  fridge magnets and much more  are being offered. Cost is $10 for  Ihe first child and $5 for Ihe second which includes materials.  Call Jessica at 886-3783 to register.  Community Interaction  There is a communily interaction conference being planned at  Ihe Creek elementary for parents,  slaff and other community members on April 28-29. The concept  will focus on The Whole Child.  The keynote speaker will be  Pat Holburn who has a background in leaching for many  years and is currently In-Service  Education Coordinator for the  Faculty of Education at Simon  Fraser University.  Holburn will address the participants on Thursday between 7  pm and 9 pm. Friday will comprise workshops with several key  people.  A luncheon is also planned.

Instead, it is a mixture of  patience, terror and frustration.  Patience at the traffic lights  which seem to be al every corner, terror of the careless, irresponsible drivers who appear lo  have multiplied by tens.  The lack of courtesy is evident everywhere, in stores, on  ihe streets and certainly on Ihe  road.  We who were born, raised  and lived most of our lives in  Vancouver are sad lo see whal  the cily has become; but we also  realize this is what happens when  the population booms, real estate  soars and the almighty dollar  rears ils head.  Il's no wonder so many have  opled for the rural areas where  life is nol so hectic, traffic isn't  snarled all day, Ihree cars don't  go Ihrough on a red lighl, sports  cars don't change lanes four  limes in one block and people in  stores still take lime lo be cheerful, courteous and helpful.

This is a great fun afternoon; lunch is served promptly at  12 noon.  Speaking of bridge, 40 avid  players turned oul for the final  game at the hall last Friday. It is  now in hiatus until September,  much to the chagrin of those who  count bridge as an integral part  of Iheir weekly lives. I know  some people who play three and  four times a week. Much appre  ciation musl go to coordinators  Maria Chatham and Lois Fishleigh for a job well done.  Music festival  The 21st annual Sunshine  Coast Music Festival got off to a  flying start, demonstrated by the  enthusiasm of the performers as  well as the audience.  "Judging is going lo be very  difficult," said Lois Fishleigh,  chairman of the Festival Committee. "They are all so incredibly talented."  Fishleigh has high praise for  Ihe music educators and teachers  of the Sunshine Coast School  District 46. They devote so much  lime ��� much of it is Iheir own  time ��� to the teaching of these  young people. Two very dedicated ladies who come to mind are  Janice Brunson of Pender Harbour and Layle Kenyon of Chatelech. This festival is a very  ambitious undertaking and much  gratitude must be given to the  organizers, teachers, participants,  judges, audiences and lastly, the  parents who make it possible for  their children to be part of it.  This coming Friday and Saturday nights, April 22 and 23  you will have the opportunity to  listen first-hand to the highlights  of this festival at the Raven's Cry  Theatre at 7 pm.

In 1989 we looked at the cardboard we were contributing to the  landfill and decided that (although it would be more costly than garbage  disposal) it was time to recycle.  The compactor/baler we bought could handle a larger volume of  cardboard than we were producing, so we decided to encourage the  general public to bring in their cardboard. We felt good about diverting  material away from the landfill, and decided we could do even more. On  July 1, 1989 we opened our recycling depot for our customers and  began collecting paper, tin, aluminum, plastic, glass and newsprint, as  well as cardboard. The depot to date has diverted approximately 1,800  tons of materials to recycling depots off the Coastl  LOCATED BEHIND CLAYTON'S AT TRAIL BAY MALL  HOURS: Monday-Saturday: 9:30 a.m. ��� S:30 p.m. Sunday: 11:00 a.m. ��� S:00 p.m.  ��� MEAT*-  Cut Horn Canada grade A beet  Outside Round  Rump Roast  1.93/kg  269 *  fresh Horn New Zealand  Boneless Strip  Loin Steaks *799Eb  17.61/kg ���,..;   Fresh pork  Side Ribs  5.93/kg -���   loan  Ground Beef  Mf/kg   2691b  2291b  Schneider's  Stir Fry Kit S49ea  470 g :.  *_9  Qtlmm'i bulk  European Wieners   099 lb  ���������o/m  O  Grimm's bulk  Pepperoni  0.00/kg   3991b  Select Bacon Q29 ea  500 g  ��J  Schneider's  Lunchmates ......

The Student Business Loans  program is open to students 15  years of age or older who are  legally entitled to work in Canada. Applicants musl attend a  Canadian high school, community college or university and  intend to return to school this  fall.  The Student Business Loans  program operates under the auspices of Human Resources  Developmeni Canada and the  Secretary of Stale for Training  and Youth as pari of Challenge  '94, Ihe federal government's  summer employment program  for students.  Student Business Loans are  available in BC, Saskatchewan,  Manitoba, Alberta, Quebec,  Newfoundland, the Northwest  Territories and Yukon.  The number of loans and jobs  created have increased steadily  since Ihe program was launched  in 1985. Last year, 1,113 loans  totalling $3.05 million were  granted, representing an 11.9 percent increase in the number of  loans and a 13.5 percent increase  in the amount loaned over the  previous year. These loans  helped to create 2,427 jobs for  studenls in a variety of businesses, from landscaping and lawn  maintenance to a roller hockey  camp, a judo camp and rickshaw  taxi service.  In BC, 172 Student Business  Loans were authorized for a total  of $445,368 helping students to  create 357 jobs.  Applications for Ihis year's  loans are being accepted now.

Parking  dilemma  tackled  Sechelt's parking problem  will headline tonight's (April  18) Economic Development  Committee forum at Rockwood  Cenlre.  "That is one of the initial  focuses, parking is quite a problem in downtown Sechelt and  we are addressing that issue  right now," said Gordon L. Wilson, president of the Sechelt and  District Chamber of Commerce.  The committee will review  the feasibility of re-designing  parking facilities and lots  around Sechelt with the assistance of a consultant.  Consulting work will likely  be split between a group on the  Coast and a company from the  Lower Mainland.  "It doesn't really do us much  good to bring in a group of consultants out of Vancouver thai  really don'l know (he community or Ihe Sunshine Coasl at all,"  Wilson said.  There is no public parking  presently available in Sechelt,  aside from two-hour parking  along Cowrie Slreel.  The Ministry of Highways  has insisted that parking be  eliminated along Teredo to  ensure thai the road is maintained strictly as highway  access.  Wilson said Ihere are opportunities for development of  parking lots and/or a parkade on  properly available in ihe downlown core, behind businesses  located on Cowrie Street.

Money 'dumped' on Sprockids  for bike park outside Gibsons  by Christine Bodt  An old regional district dump  will soon be 'recycled' as a  hang-out for elementary school-  aged mountain bike enthusiasts.  The Sunshine Coast SptbaH-  ids Bike Program has just  received a $5,000 grant from  the Outdoor Recreation Council, a provincial agency that  screens applications for the federal government's Active Living and Environmenl Program.  The funds will be used lo  build a mountain-hike park at  Ihe dump site near Stewart Road  in Gibsons, Tie Fraser, one of  the Sprockids directors, said at a  meeting on Thursday, April 7.  "The park will give kids the  opportunity to ride bikes safely,  recreationally, away from the  hubbub of traffic," Fraser said.  "Wc didn't want kids to get  bored going around and around  the playground. The park will  give kids a safe haven to ride  in."  Currently, Sprockids is only  at Gibsons Elementary, but the  club will be introduced to other  Coast elementary schools.  Sprockids will lease the land  from the Sunshine Coast  Refional District (SCRD). The  eight-hectare former dump has  been capped, and proper  drainage installed.  "We've now got the task of  making it suitable for mountain  bikes," Fraser said.  "We want to have Ihe park  up and running by mid to the  end of June."  Sprockids hopes to develop  the park to provincial park standards. Fraser said it could  become a popular family and  tourist attraction. "To our  knowledge there's nothing like  this in the province. We've got  tremendous support from Ihe  provincial and federal government."  Plans for the park include  washrooms, picnic areas, parking, bleachers, a terraced riding  area and a trail system. The estimated budget is $16,000, and  Sprockids hopes to raise more  money with a raffle, and to get  local businesses and individuals  to donate heavy equipment use  and time.  "We always need lots of volunteers," Fraser said.

Toil-Free: 681-7931  PUBLIC SERVICE INFORMATION NOTICE TO  REALTORS, LAND OWNERS, CONTRACTORS AND  ENGINEERS CONCERNED WITH LAND DEVELOPMENT.  If you own or are involved in proposed subdivision of land you should be aware of the  following:  1 The present zoning cannot be relied on. The size of the proposed lots will be  determined by the Environmental Health Officer.  If you have at least 38" of permeable soil cover you may be subjected to much larger lot  sizes than anticipated. Do not forget to dig 12" square perc test holes (not round ones)  to comply with the regulations.  2. If you or your predecessors have distributed the original native soil cover in anyway  (cleared the land, or drained it, or removed old buildings or built trails or driveways or  landscaped the property) your application may be rejected out of hand.  Thar* are no official "guideline* with reaped to lota to be created" on aubdlvidable  property. All remedial measures as outlined in the guidelines for established lots will be  discared as irrelevant.  If you have a natural water course and tributaries on your property it may be "alienated"  by means a Restrictive Covenant barring future owners from the use not only of its  channel, but up to 15m. on each side of the top of its banks as well. (In my view this is  tantamount to exploration without compensation).  You may also be required to fence off that entire area and future owners will be  responsible to the Crown for its undisturbed reliability forever.  3. While your application is being considered, behind "closed doors" by the inter agency  executives (who may nevertheless have been influenced by parties opposed to it) you  will not be invited to explain or rebut any such undisclosed objections. You may instead  be stonewalled until hard lines have been taken.  Your application will be considered by officials who hopefully will exercise faiur and  appropriate discretionary powers.but who are naturally commited to their own narrow and  uncompromising mandate.  The chances of 6 or more agencies each with their particular concerns to defend, arriving  at a general concensus for the greater common good are slim.  You may have to wait a Ion time for this to happen because there is no overriding  coordinating agency.  4. Meanwhile, your application may be stalled, and undermined until new regulations  come into effect, and your previous efforts based upon existing guidelines will the have  been for nothing.  5. Due to human imperfections, discretionary powers are sometimes applied differently  by differing personalities who, as a result, then hold different views, therefore, there can  be no absolute uniformity, based on actual merit and proper scientific assessment.  6. Guidelines are not specific laws which should be known in advance. Discretionary  powers are presumably appealable, but we will all know that this is another unnecessary  expense.  If, as a result of the above state of affairs, you also find yourself in the same predicament  as I am in, please fax me with your name, address, phone number.  If enough parties are interested in re-establishing law and order in the subdivision  application process, instead of continuing to rely on the expertise and hoped for  Impartiality of officials who have been assigned awesom, arbtrary and dictorial powers  (which can break you at will, regardless of the facts) I will call a general meeting and  advise you of it's time and place later.

Utilities Commission public review  that began last November. Alcan respects this process and is a full  participant in the proceedings. This month, the third phase of technical hearings will examine the fisheries issues associated with this  $1.3-billion hydroelectric development. We recognize that most British  Columbians will not have the opportunity to attend hearings being held  in Prince George and Vancouver. That's why we're initiating a 1-800  Information Line to help you follow the facts about a project that is  important to B.C. and to Alcan.  You should know, for example, that:  1    ���  .-A''*  *     "       '      l  {'   m_J 1 aa**���*  m  /     |��\            W-2* ���  Rah experts hava been at work oa tha Nachako Him for  15 year* to make aura salmon stock* will be protected  under tha Kemano Completion Project  KaamayOam. haih 40 years ago. it oaa at tit* largest rock-  filled derm in the world.  :  Tka aahmag pawathomaa ht hailt hnH* Mt Dakota; only  tha tatiama it riiQfi aataUa lha aevantai*.  1 Alcan is legally bound to protect  Nechako River salmon stocks.  Since 1979, when it announced its intention to proceed with KCP- the second and final phase of the original  Kitimat-Kemano project, Alcan has twice redesigned the  project to meet environmental objectives.  The first redesign was voluntary. The second resulted  from an agreement with the governments of Canada and  B.C. that assures the maintenance of Nechako River  salmon stocks. Today's KCP provides a program of protection for Nechako River salmon that is one of the most  sweeping environmental obligations ever imposed on a  public or private company in Canada.  2 KCP involves no new dams or flooding.  KCP is the completion of a hydroelectric development begun 40 years ago. As a result, the dam and  the reservoir are already in place. Water from the existing  Nechako Reservoir will be used to power four new generators at Kemano, in addition to the eight currently  installed. This means that less water will be released into  the Nechako River, but the project has been carefully  designed to ensure that lower water levels will not  ���' I  interfere with other economic uses of the river.  In fact, Kemano Completion has fewer environmental  effects than any other hydroelectric energy project  available to the province of B.C.  3 KCP is the cheapest power available  to B.C. Hydro.  Because of its unique natural configuration,  Kemano is one of the most efficient producers of  renewable hydroelectricity in the world. A 20year  sales agreement between Alcan and B.C. Hydro states  that until aluminum markets warrant expansion of  smelter facilities in B.C., Alcan will sell KCP power to  B.C. Hydro to help meet energy needs in the province.  According to B.C. Hydro, KCP power will save the  province about $450 million over comparable energy  options during the life of the sales agreement with Alcan.  4 KCP provides enormous  economic benefits to B.C.  In addition to the energy benefits KCP brings to  the province, die project will have injected more than a  bflSon dollars into B.C.'s economy by the time it is complete.

Construction was halted in 1991 as a result of a  legal challenge from aboriginal and environmental  groups. More than 1,000 people lost thdir jobs  when the project shut down. The Supreme Court  of Canada ultimately dismissed the legal action,  confirming Alcan's right to proceed with KCP  However, the project remains on hold, pending the  outcome of the B.C. Utilities Commission review.  With more than $500 million already invested in  KCP, Alcan is anxious to reassure British  Columbians about the environmental quality of this  project. Hundreds of construction-workers and  thousands of people working for B.C. suppliers and  contractors are anxious to see work resume.  And, since KCP is half built, the energy from  the project can be brought on stream three years  after construction resumes.  Over the coming weeks, the fisheries  science on which KCP is based will be  presented to British Columbians at the  BCUC public review. Alcan hopes that the  people of B.C. will follow these proceedings and make up their own minds about  KCP, based on die bets.  ���ml  tl  ���  If you would like to  know more, call  1-800-94ALCAN  1-800-942-5226  Alcan is a Canadian company with 44,000 employees around the world,  13,000 of them in Canada.

Pender Chamber of Commerce president Dave Orr is  spearheading the drive lo establish a community policing station, based on successful 'partners in policing' programs in Ihe  Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island.  And he was al a meeling  Thursday night al Ihe Madeira  Park Legion to presenl Ihe idea  of community policing to the  small number of Pender Harbour residents and business  owners who turned oul lo discuss the idea  "A storefront operation i.s  just the first step in gelling a  detachment for Pender Harbour," Orr said.  "The RCMP are statistically  driven, and in order lo gel a  police presence you have lo  have the statistics Indicating  they are needed.  "Many people here jusl don'l  bother calling in a complain!  because il lakes a half an hour  or more for Sechell lo send  someone up here.  "Tonight is the acid test. It  has to be more lhan Ihe Chamber and business who want ihis.  It's the community's decision."  Almost all agreed lhat a  storefront police presence would  be useful.  While statistics on crime  weren't available, the consensus  was that all types of crime are  occurring in the Pender area,  with property thefts and acts of  vandalization predominating  Ralph Miller, a representative from the South Surrey community policing station, emphasized the role of volunteers in  such an arrangement.  "We're there to serve the  community. Our training is  extensive, and covers traffic  violations, report writing and  victims' services.  "Occasionally we provide  surveillance which assists the  RCMP. They can't be everywhere at once.  "Crime is no longer 'police  business.' It's everyone's business."  RCMP managers have made  a staffing offer for two half-days  per week. During other times,  the Pender storefront operation  would be run by trained volunteers.  Const. Fred Bott is sure the  program will get off the ground.  "It gives Ihe communily an  Public  invited to  mock trial  in spouse  abuse*  murder  A murder case involving a  battered spouse will be Ihe subject of a mock trial al the  Sechell Courthouse al 7 pm  Wednesday.

The defence will argue lhal  Girard had heen violently  assaulted by Sicel over a period  of years, and so acted in self  defence.  This mock trial, original!)  produced by Ihe Law Courts  Education Society, will be  staged by the Law 12 class of  Chalelech Secondary in recognition of Law Week here in BC.  Students have assumed roles as  lawyers, witnesses, police and  other officials in order to  demonslrate Ihe court process  and lo illustrate some of Ihe  issues surrounding haltered wife  syndrome.  The mock trial will be held  al 7 pm Wednesday, April 20 in  th* Sechelt Courthouse, located  above Gibsons Building Supplies.  opportunity lo gel to know Ihe  police and the problems we  lace, and il gives us an opportunity to know Ihe communily.  We're already doing liaison  work in Ihe schools here and  this is just another step in being  able to share common ground  with the community."  Bolt says he believes the  increased police presence in  Pender during ihe past two years  has had a positive impaci, bul  lhal a storefront operation  would continue the downturn in  crime.  The 'Partners in Policing'  committee is looking for a walk-  in location, funding, and volunteers.  If vou can help, phone Dave  Orr al 883-9551, or Dallas  Brock at 883-9676.
