Call 886-CARE  Sunshine Coast  resident awarded  Order of BC  Granthams Landing resident Ric Careless has been chosen to  receive the Order of British Columbia.  Premier Mike Harcourt announced May 6 that Careless was one of  12 BC residents to be honored with the medal.  Careless was selected because of his tireless work as executive  director of Tatshenshini Wild and his past association with the Sierra  Club and for his work as a river conservationist.  Careless, the award announcement states, "is one of British  Columbia's leading environmental activists and a key player behind  the decision to preserve the Tatshenshini."  Harcourt said Careless and the other 11 recipients "have made a  tremendous contribution to science, business, the environment,  music, literature and the community.  "Through their work, we have learned a lot about British  Columbia and ourselves."  Making his award selection even sweeter is the fact that over 200  nominations were received for the Order of BC, currently held by  about 80 British Columbians.  The recipients are selected by an advisory committee separate  from the government and headed by the Chief Justice of BC. The  awards will be presented in a ceremony at Victoria's Government  House, June 16.  Careless was unavailable for comment on his award at press time.  Summertime blues?

Joel Johnstone photo  SPCA interested in new deal... and more money  by Don Anderson  If the District of Sechelt and  Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) want to continue to have  their stray dogs impounded, it's  going to cost them.  That was the message from  Clint Davy, shelter manager for  the Society for the Prevention of  Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) during his presentation to District of  Sechelt councillors last Wednesday (May 4).  "We feel we have to come to  another arrangement with Gibsons and the regional district,"  Davy said. "Quite frankly, we  are losing money because  (impounds) are having a negative  impact on our shelter."  Between June 6 of last year  and the end of April, 1994, the  SPCA impounded 255 dogs at  the Henry Road shelter. Of that  number, 159 were picked up  within regional district boundaries and another 29 were nabbed  in Sechelt.  That represents roughly 77  per cent of the total number of  dogs contained. The remainder  (58) were picked up in Gibsons  over the course of 11 months.  "This is really putting a major  strain on our resources," Davy  said.  On June 6, the SPCA  assumed control of the shelter  through a written contract with  the Town of Gibsons. Under that  contract, the SPCA would lease  the land from the lown for $1 a  year.  Gibsons has since agreed to  allow the SPCA to retain the $8 a  day boarding fee charged to  owners of impounded dogs and  is considering allocating 10 per  cent of Ihe SPCA's dog-licence  sales to the shelter.  Gibsons has also provided  $600 as a grant-in-aid to the shelter and $1,500 to upgrade it. Last  year, the Sechelt Indian Band  donated $850 for upgrade work,  while Sechelt provided $150.  The regional district did not  donate to the effort.  Under a verbal arrangement,  worked out with Sechelt and the  regional district when the society  took over the shelter, stray dogs  are held for three days and, if  unclaimed, become what are  known as "SPCA dogs." Boarding fees collected from owners of  impounded dogs are then  returned to the District of Sechelt  and the regional district  Davy estimates it costs the  society at least $20 a day to look  after an animal, after food, transportation, administrative and  other extraneous costs are  accounted for.  In an interview last Thursday,  Davy said the SPCA may refuse  to accept any more animals from  the regional district and Sechelt  He is particularly angry at the  regional district which he feels  has been "pretty well getting a  free ride.  He is also disappointed with  Sechelt's decision to amend its  animal-control bylaw and  vicious-dog bylaw  without  informing the SPCA. Davy  believes that the vicious-dog  bylaw amendment would place  too much power in the hands of  one person to decide exactly  what is a vicious dog.  The District of Sechelt has  decided to postpone passing the  amended bylaws pending further  review.  Mayor Earl Basse expressed  concern about whether the district would have to pay more if it  entered into new agreement with  the SPCA. He also indicated that  there would be no sense in passing the bylaw if it would  inevitably have to be changed  again.  Clint Davy  Forest industry spends big money on war of words  by Darah Hansen  Just how much does it cost to  run an advertising war these  days?  If the standards set by  MacMillan Bloedel, the BC Forest Alliance and Greenpeace  Canada are anything to go by ���  more than $1 million a year.  And that's just for a few  advertisements in the national  news media.  MacMillan Bloedel and ihe  Alliance say they have had to  spend money on advertising to  counter a publicity campaign  started by Greenpeace.  MacMillan Bloedel is the  biggest spender in the recent  environmental war of words.  Company spokesman Dennis  Fitzgerald said the company  spent about $1 million last year  on public relations, with advertising being "far and away" the  largest expenditure.  With full-page ads running in  national daily newspapers,  Fitzgerald said the company is  trying to communicate the  "facts" ��� particularly in regard  to what industry calls the Clayoquot compromise.  MacBlo is Ihe largest  licensee in the controversial old  growth Clayoquot forest located  on Vancouver Island.  Two recent ads ��� which ran  in the Globe and Mail, the Van-  couver Sun, the Vancouver  Province, the Financial Post  and Ihe Victoria Times-Colonist  ��� target Greenpeace, saying the  organization should "get ils facts  straight," adding lhal MacBlo  has "accepted responsibility for  change."  The ads come after MacBlo  lost two contracts in England ���  totalling aboul $8 million ��� as  a result of an international  "clearcut-free"      campaign  launched by Greenpeace.  "What alternatives does the  company have?" Fitzgerald  asked.  Anne McMullin, media relations manager of the 7,000-  metnber BC Forest Alliance,  said $200,000 of her organization's annual budget of $2 million is allocated to newsprint or  television ads.  The alliance ��� with 75 per  cent of its budget supplied by  the BC forest industry, and  whose stated purpose is to provide for the economic and environmental heallh of both BC  forests and industries ��� perceives Greenpeace's "clearcut-  free" campaign as a "major  threat" to the international  forestry market, especially overseas, McMullin said.  The alliance's $200,000 is  being used to combat the dissemination of "misinformation"  on the part of Greenpeace,  McMullin said. The alliance ads  provide the "correct and right  information."  Meanwhile, Greenpeace  Canada, a non-profit organization with 327,000 members, has  already blown its 1994 advertising budget of $60,000.  Greenpeace media director  Tamara Stark this is the first  year the organization has budgeted for advertising, a result of  the recent "anti-Greenpeace"  ads launched by the BC forest  industry.  Stark said Greenpeace does  not intend to spend much more  on the public campaign trail; it's  "loo expensive."  She said Greenpeace gets its  message out through the media,  free public service announcements and door-to-door campaigning.  _.__  __________  m_W_m_m_mm Coast News, May 9,1994  St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary  Sechelt Branch  SPRING LUNCHEON  Home-made Soups, Sandwiches,  Salad Plates, Desserts  plus  CRAFTS & PLANTS FOR SALI'  Indian Band Hall, Wed.

"It's in the hands of the  lawyers," SCRD administrator  Larry Jardine said in an interview  Thursday (May 5) ��� one week  after the regional district gave  final approval to an order to go  ahead with the demolition of the  shed.  The demolition was averted  Friday (April 29) after Skea successfully blocked the access to  his property making it impossible  for bulldozers hired by the  regional district to proceed with  the order. A court injunction  would make it illegal for anyone  to interfere with the demolition  order again, Jardine said.  The SCRD, he added, has no  interest in "doing physical battle"  With Skea "or anyone else" to  remove the building.   ' 'Jirdine said' getting, the  injunction will likely take up to  George Skea  two weeks and there is no guarantee the judge will grant it.  He declined to speculate on  what the judicial outcome might  be, saying only that, "in our  view, we've followed proper  procedure under the Municipal  Act."  ;.' According ty regional district  bylaws, all costs associated with  the demolition, including legal  fees, will be charged back to  Skea on his taxes.  The battle between Skea and  Ihe regional district over the boat  shed has been on-going for several months.  The SCRD contends the shed  is illegal because Skea failed to  get the necessary permit to build  it. Skea was denied the permit on  the grounds that the shed ��� built  to house a 102-foot wooden vessel which Skea is building by  hand ��� is too big under area  bylaws governing his residential-  ly-zoned property.  But Skea maintains he was  given verbal permission to go  ahead with the shed's construction from a former district planner, Ray Coates.  .. Skea has promised lo dismantle the shed when he is finished  the boat He estimates that .will  lake another 18 months.  Organic produce lean-to still up,  town council still wants it down  by Ian Cobb  The Town of Gibsons wants  the organic produce stand beside  Variety Foods taken down  ASAP.  Town officials also have gone  beyond stand operator Nanci  Gaudry and are now concentrating their pressure for bylaw compliance on Karl Heinz Schroers,  the owner of the Gower Point  Road food store and deli. The  produce stand's lean-to is adjacent to the store, but the property  is owned by a third party.  "We've told Karl we expect  the lean-to down and it hasn't  gone down," Gibsons administrator Dan Legg said on May 6.  The town maintains the lean-  to from which Gaudry's produce  stand operates was constructed  without a building permit and is  unsafe.  Schroers said he hoped  Gaudry would comply with the  town order.  "If it's not taken down by  Wednesday, the town said they  will revoke my business  licence," he said.  While Wednesday, May 11  has been bandied about as the  final date for Gaudry or Schroers  to dismantle the stand, Legg said  no date has been finalized.  However, he admitted the  idea of reviewing Schroers' business licence has been explored,  as have other options, such as  passing a special bylaw to deal  with the dismantling of the lean-  to.  If that happened, the lean-to  would be removed and the cost  of the removal would be billed  to the property owner.  'We're not trying to  throw her off; we're  just asking her to  comply'  -John McNevin  "If someone has a business  licence with the town and aren't  following bylaw requirements, it  can go up for review."  "None of us want to see it (the  produce stand) go bul others in  the community respect bylaws,"  Gibsons counsellor John  McNevin said during a May 3  council meeting. "We're not trying to throw her off; we're just  asking her to comply."  "I feel like the bad guy in the  press," he added, noting the publicity in the Coast News regarding the order to remove the lean-  to.  He said the town told Gaudry  and Schroers three months ago  the produce stand could continue  to operate elsewhere as long as  parking requirements were met.  To compensate, the stand was  moved to the front of Variety  Foods, all part of what McNevin  called "alternate arrangements."  Mayor Eric Small said the  alternate arrangements were  originally suggested by council.  But Gaudry has charged that  the town is using "scare tactics"  with her and Schroers and that  they can't make up their minds  what their beef with the lean-to  is.  "It went from not meeting the  code to not having a building  permit," she said. "They're stuck  in one law...stuck in the  moment."  Gaudry also disputes a comment she alleges was made by  mayor Small on a local cablevi-  sion talk show that "the town has  bent over backwards" to accommodate her. "I nearly fainted,"  Gaudry said.  Meanwhile, Ihere has been an  outpouring of support for her  from the Lower Gibsons business community, and from customers and non-customers alike,  Gaudry said.  One local business/properly  owner has even started circulating a petition.  "It's signed by a lol of business people down here," Gaudry  said.  Council powerless against shake mill  The District of Sechelt may  not be able to enact a demolition  order against the owner of the  Wilson Creek shake mill, even if  the safety fencing is not up to its  liking.  It had appeared that mill  owner Edward Marshall had  complied with a municipal order  to put up safety planking, or  fencing, around Ihe site to meet  building code requirements, or  face complete demolition of the  building.  Bul that fencing was called  into question during last  Wednesday's (May 4) council  meeting, after building inspector  John Wright had visited the site  in late April.  It seems Ihe fencing wilh  which Marshall attempted to  meet building code requirements  may have been half-hearted,  since it only surrounds half of Ihe  building and is elevated a foot  off the ground. "My interpretation of the code is that it is not  acceptable and these spaces must  be closed up," said municipal  planner Rob Buchan.  Although the actual building  is now considered safe under Ihe  building code, "whal we now  have is a fence thai is sub-standard and a site thai is contaminated," Buchan Mid.  Municipal clerk Michael  Vaughan said a demolition order  would deal strictly with the safety of the building and any further  development on Ihe site could  become an environmental issue.  The partially-demolished  structure was formerly used aa a  shake mill and blacktop dumping  site. The municipality has  attempted to conlacl Marshall, to  no avail. Staff will continue to  review the fencing and building  axle issues. Coast News, May 9, 1994  news  Transition House garners  council support for move  by Don Anderson  The Transition House will get  its move after all.  Sechelt council has indicated  it will support the proposed  move of the women's shelter to a  more centrally-located neighborhood in Sechelt.  Minicipal staff have begun  preparing a zoning amendment  bylaw which will likely state that  transition houses are a permitted  use in a residential neighborhood.  The suggestion of "spot" zoning for the home will not be factored into the bylaw.  For the Sunshine Coasl Community Services Society, council's decision to support the  move was much awaited and an  issue of urgency. It had already  received overwhelming support  from the neighbours of the property in question.  Community Services put an  offer on the proposed house in  March and is anxiously awaiting  the drafting of the bylaw, which  would ensure the purchase and  transfer of the new house.  "If council had deferred this  another month, the vendor just  wouldn't have been able to hold  on (lo it)," said Vicki Dobbyn,  executive director for the society.  Approval of the re-zoning  amendment must occur if the  society is to receive assistance  from Canada Mortgage & Housing Corporation (CMHC).  The society has a mortgage on  the existing house which will be  transferred with the purchase of  the new home, contingent on  passing of the bylaw amendment.  The society would like to complete the move by Sept. 1.  "The urgency was that we  would lose th j potential of this  particular house if we weren't  allowed to proceed with re-zoning," Dobbyn said.  "If council had said 'gee, we  don't support this at all,' we  would have had to collapse the  deal."  ' Being centrally located will  eliminate many of the hurdles  that the Transition House has had  to contend wilh in its present  location. "What it will mean is,  because we are closer to town,  the women can be much more  independent in terms of getting  to their medical appointments,  lawyer, social services ��� at the  moment we are doing a lot of  taxiing back and forth," Dobbyn  said.Going through the bylaw  amendment process may lead to  the exposure of the actual location of the new home, Dobbyn  said, but it is comforting to know  that men rarely show up at such  homes and cause trouble.  There has been only one  instance at the Sunshine Coast  Transition House where an irate  husband had actually been able  to find the home.  Still, it's enough of a potential  hazard to prompt Dobbyn to ask  media not to disclose the exact  location or neighborhood of the  new home.  "It's just lhat we have to continually be prepared for an incident. A lot of it is jusl making the  women feel safe," she said.

" '    Joel Johnstone photo  Elphi residents slam bypass routes  Members of the Elphinstone  Electors Association voiced their  dissatisfaction with the options  of the impending Gibsons highway bypass at the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board (SCRD)  last Thursday (April 28)  Speaking on behalf of the  association, Steve Holland told  the board that running the proposed highway through Henry or  Payne Road west of Gibsons ���  as the Ministry of Highways has  suggested ��� would be a "harassed solution."  Residents along the road are  worried Ihe bypass will destroy  the rural nature of the area. Some  residents are even prepared to  move if the bypass goes through,  Holland said.  Holland added that the association is further protesting the  Town of Gibsons' recent decision to approve Henry Road as a  connector in the bypass.  The regional board has voted  in favour of Payne Road as the  connector.  The association is pushing for  Conrad Road, northwest of Gibsons, as a third option to be considered.  The option was supported by  the regional board at a meeting in  January. At that time, SCRD  directors agreed to send a letter  to the highways ministry asking  that Conrad Road be added to the  list of possible connector routes.  At Thursday's meeting, both  Gibsons Mayor Eric Small and  regional directors told Holland  that the Henry and Payne routes  are supported only as connectors  and not for the bypass itself.  Currently the bypass is considered the "road to nowhere."  Highways has spent an estimated  $11 million on the project. To  date, construction on the bypass  remains unfinished.  The ministry plan is to reroute ferry traffic from the Langdale terminal through to either  Payne or Henry Road in Gibsons  and out to Highway 101.

Coast News, May 9, 1994  opinion  Education admin  cuts falling in the  wrong places  The push is on to cut back on administrative expenses in the  education system. The push is coming from Victoria, but the  shove is going on at the local level ��� or so you might think if  you read only the headline of a story on the subject which  appeared in the May 5 Coast News Weekender.  "Axe falls on school district admin jobs," the headline said.  However, if you read the story underneath you would have  seen that the local administrative cuts are almost exclusively  aimed at what should probably be called clerical or junior  administration staff���jobs that mostly pay less than $30,000 a  year. And staffing freezes in maintenance and janitorial  staffing don't exactly amount to big-time savings, either. Or at  least, not the biggest possible.  As well, there are some job reassignments in the works and  some building realignments such as turning the school district  board room into office space.  However, what about cuts to the salaries of the big-time  administrators, the ones who earn in the range of $60,000-  $80,000 a year?  Since many people in this salary range tend to be administrators who do some planning and then pass the actual work  onto clerical staff or administrative assistants, would it not  make more sense to retain and retrain (if necessary) these less  expensive employees ��� even give them a raise ��� and give the  boot to some of the 'high-ticket' administrators?  If we were to do this, we would stand a better chance of  retaining jobs for the greater number of people who do the  actual work, and gain more in actual dollars.  Besides, if the provincial government is serious about cutting back on administrative expenses at the local level, why  couldn't education bureaucrats in Victoria do some of this  planning? Apparently the cutbacks the province envisions at  the local level haven't been implemented at the departmental  level. How else to explain that Victoria has at its beck and call  people it will send out to tell 'outlying' school boards how to  cut costs?  The local school board has declined such offers, in any case,  arguing that such a course of action would threaten its autonomy (we think that's the argument, at any rate). Instead, our  school board wants money from the province so it can hire its  own consultants for the very same purpose.  Who knows what this particular disagreement is really  about?  But is it possible that the people from Victoria might target  some of those better paid senior administrative positions  instead of the rank-and-file employees? Apparently we are not  going to find out.  In any case, the school board should remember one thing.  Its main purpose is to deliver education to students. If programs and facilities and teachers and students and junior  admistrative and custodial staff are all going to feel the pinch  through losing their jobs, don't the top-level administrators  have an obligation to taste a little of their own medicine if they  are going to remain job cut-free? Perhaps they should volunteer to cut their own salaries by five per cent, as their counterparts in Alberta are being forced to do.  Who knows? They might find that taking such action would  give them a great level of moral satisfaction, since any such  savings would be put back into helping pay for actual delivery  of education to the students, where it belongs.  And having once cut their own salaries, these administrators  might even find they would wish to continue doing so on an  annual basis.  And in the process, they would be taking part in a very useful educational experience.  Enough transition,  already  The Transition House is not a  group home for unruly teens,  nor is it a recovery house for  prisoners or drug addicts. The  shelter is a centre for women  (52 per cent of the adult population) and their children, when  applicable.  Some women must use the  place as a refuge from their abusive partner, as our society has  not seriously addressed family  violence as a problem. Others  use the service as a crisis line  for when they are not coping  with their situation and need an  outside and professional ear to  help sort out options, etc. Other  women work there and provide  for their families with salaries  (that) only the dedicated and  committed would accept. These  are all good reasons for a service and nothing to be. ashamed  of.  Why is Transition House still  incognito? Why don't they  reach a little higher?  How about a real Women's  Centre, one lhat provides daycare at odd hours, shelter at all  hours, a high-profile office an  facility right on Ihe main street  that says "We are women and  that's okay!"  There is now a Women's  Resources Centre that doesn't  really have a home; funding has  been made available for second  stage housing for high-risk  women in transition; Transition  House itself must be worth over  $200,000, not to mention the  public support that is really  there (who would say it is not a  good service?).  So why fool around with  finicky residential areas and  uneducated politicians? Why not  pool funds, call it a business and  push through all the red tape  like any other developer? Unfortunately I suspect that the people  who are helping women rise to  their full potential are women  themselves raised in this same  society and have too been told  to be good girls, be quiet, don't  be loo pushy and my all-time  favourite ��� it's probably just  PMS.  BRiDCi T BARAGAR  Halftnoon Bay  Taxed for divorce?  Get write on it  I thank Eve Quigley for taking the time to write about a federal government law which  adversely affects thousands of  single parents across Canada. I  believe the law governing the  taxing of 'maintenance payments' is 50 years old. This law  doesn't appear to be of any  importance to anybody but those  who it primarily and detrimentally affects.  The saying, "if you want  something done do it yourself,"  is most appropriate in this situation. If any single parent in  Canada feels strongly enough  about the tax law which discriminates against them they must  start the ball rolling on their  own.  Tenacity, perseverance and  determination are prerequisites.  Nobody of influence will care  otherwise and the discrimination  and tax demands will continue  unrelentingly.  .Single parents are a minority  and at that, not a high priority  minority.

FRED INGLIS, President  Gibsons Landing Heritage  Society  Dog bites dogged reporter in Roberts Creek: a warning  This is a weird tale.  Perhaps it's weirder for me than the reader.  Allow me to explain.  Violence is something most reporters have to  contend wilh at certain points in their careers.  In the three years I've been doing this type of  work, I've had my head split open, an ash tray  thrown at me, several threats of bodily harm directed at me, the lug nuts on my Iruck lires loosened  and, most recently, been bitten by a large dog.  It's understandable that people will get miffed  when you write about iheir pilfering escapades in  other people's homes, their misappropriation of  other folks' funds and/or take pictures of them when  they're not having good-hair days  These are dangers we have lo contend with in  Ihis business and luckily, the majority of the stuff  we cover is harmless.  Now the weird pan.  I didn't want to write aboul being bitten by a dog  because, for one thing, I literally grew up in a dog  kennel and I'm nol scared of dogs and the incident  ticked me off more than frightened mc. However,  my editor, who I shall call...Larry, thought it might  be the professional thing to do, what with all the  canine hallucinations occurring on the Coast these  days.  Larry posed the question: "What if someone else  Is bitten by this dog, and bitten worse?"  I spoke to my wife about my reluctance to write  aboul getting bitten and she really knocked me for a  between the lines  loop. "How would you like it if our daughter was  bitten by this dog?" she asked me. "What about  someone else's daughter?"  Case closed. I'll spill the beans.  Some lime ago, I was approached by a woman  who lives in Roberts Creek, who told me the local  dog catcher was unjustly harassing and "stalking"  her and her dog.  My reporter's nose took off like a rabbil on  speed. "Sniff, sniff���a story."  She told me the dog catcher had given her a ticket because her dog wasn't licenced and then had  continued to harass her. Her story could be proved  through documents that had been filed in a lawsuit  she'd initiated against the man in civil court.  She delivered court documents to me and spelled  oul a pretty harrowing tale. One lhat I cannot, to this  moment, dispute. I spoke with the dog catcher and  he told me he had nothing to say, thai it was up to  the court to decide the matter.  While doing further research, which included  Ian cobb  some checking up on the woman who'd come lo me  wilh the complaint, I discovered she had moved lo  the Coast to escape a pretty grim past, and that she  had purchased a large German shepherd to protect  herself.  I was alto lold that the dog had become her  touchstone to safety and that she became embroiled  with the dog catcher because her baby ��� she called  the dog her "child" ��� her source of safety, was  being jeopardized.  Even with the help of the court documents, my  editor wasn't convinced we had sufficient evidence  lo support her claim that the dog catcher had unduly  or unjustly singled out her and her dog ��� not  enough to write a news story about, at any rale.  So I arranged to return the documents to her.  When I arrived at her place, a funky A-frame, I  unhitched the gate to the small fenced in area directly in the front and walked up to the steps leading up  to a short deck in front of the house.  The door opened and I noticed the woman, who  was expecting me. I also noticed a large German  shepherd burst through the door and lunge at me.  The first snap of in jaws caught me in the beer-blub-  bery part of the ole 30-somelhing expanding turn.  The woman told the dog to "Uncle" but it still  wanted some reporter for lunch. She either couldn't,  or wouldn't, bring her dog under control.  The only reason I didn't gel bitten worse than I  did was that I didn't panic. I just twisted and turned  from the dog's snapping teeth and let ihe animal  gnaw on my jean jacket-covered arm until eventually I could squeeze through the gale and split.  "It's just a flesh wound," I remember thinking.  "I've had worse."  I also remember thinking that if someone else  had been in my place ��� someone easily frightened  by dog* or unfamiliar with them ��� they could have  been badly hurt. I have kind of a split responsibility  here. I promised not to reveal the woman's name or  circumstances. And I'm trying honour that pledge.  Thai's probably why I didn't report the incident.  At the same time, as a resident of Roberts Oeek,  I feel I have a responsibility to the rest of the community, too. And this is ihe best I can do to meet  both responsibilities.  1 don't want to alarm anyone, but I know from  firsthand experience that there is one German shepherd in Roberts Creek lhat will attack someone  known to its mistress and not respond immediately  to her attempts lo call il off.  I thought you should know.  COAST^NEWS  ���KOSCTpWOrt mMttt tot  te9 CoiSf Wfwi Ot Iftf WttmtlHltl;  ran*: I year ��� I !<��� < I!

After reading the series of  articles regarding captured  whales by Coast News reporter  Darah Hansen, my friends and I  decided lo have a yard sale with  proceeds going to Lifeforce  Foundation of Vancouver.

To see the whales swimming  free in the oceans where they  belong is far removed from the  sad fad that Corky, belonging to  a pod from the Georgia Strait,  still lingers in captivity while  Keiko, an orca from an Icelandic pod, and who had the  starring role in the movie, Free  Willy, remains far from home in  Mexico Cily, surrounded by his  cement walls.  This year's yard uie was just  the beginning of several  fundraising functions we will be  involved with on behalf of these  wonderful whales and, of  course, other creatures great and  small.  VIOLET WINEGARDEN  Gibsons  Pot conspiracy?  The federal government,  under pressure from pot smokers disguised as environmentalists, has agreed to allow the  growing of hemp under specially licensed conditions, the main  condilion being that the hemp is  low in cannabis and that the  product be used only for paper  and cloth production.  It i* obvious thai the situation  will be impossible to police.  Are authorities going to go inlo  a farmer's field and lest every  plant for Ihe level of cannabis?  The whole idea is based on  the false premise lhal hemp  fibre has a market in the produc-  desperation," and in fact, a sound  dog would require considerable  abuse or taunting before it would  be willing to bite a human (there  is a distinct difference between a  fear-biter and an aggressive  dog).  ��� Dogs don't "leave" their  human pack because of "bad  diet" (or there wouldn't be so  many cheap, unbalanced diets on  the store shelves).  ��� Dog traits are not  "imposed" by humans; we can  however affect their expression  by breeding "for" some traits and  breeding "away" from others.  I believe the dog and cat  tragedy as it exists presently is a  simple case of numbers. There  are too many pets being allowed  to reproduce.  The Canadian Kennel Club  (and we, as members) have proposed legislation, which is  before Agriculture Canada,  attempting lo curtail the proliferation of animals imported from  American puppy mills. By the  way, if a pet store tells you its  stock didn't come from a puppy  mill, in all likelihood it came  from a 'broker' who supplied  them from a mill (American registration of a pup born in a mid-  Western state should make you  suspicious).  Either through ignorance or  arrogance, people feel they are  entitled to breed their pet (purebred or mixed) without regard to  the thousands put down every  year.  While proper education will  reduce the numbers of litters  being born, there will always be  a percentage of owners who will  not listen to reason and it is they  who will force the creation of  laws which restrict us all and  perhaps that is as il should be.  Well researched, non-breed-  specific laws may well be what  is required to stem this tide.  One last comment; I don't  believe anyone is entitled to harbour a vicious or dangerous animal (regardless of who you wish  to blame for its existence). Those  who suggest il is humane lo confine a dog to an impenetrable,  inescapable pen or yard, not out  of civic responsibility, but  because of fear for what the animal might do, need lo re-think  their philosophy.  GORDON POLLOCK  Gibsons  Moving the shelter  What a relief to finally hear  of Ihe possibilty of moving the  SPCA shelter. From the beginning 1 could never see the sense  of it being al one end of a long  peninsula.  Of course it should be near  Ihe centre to best serve the  whole coast.  And of course in a properly  zoned area. Somebody goofed  badly. I, for one, am in favour  of the airport area.  MS. D. DULSON  Gibsons  lion of paper and cloth; one  wonders if the government advisors who suggested this idea  weren't themselves stoned at the  time.  Hemp is produced in large  amounts in India and China and  both these countries have difficulty selling their product on the  world markei in spite of the fact  the labour is cheap and growing  conditions far superior lo anything in Canada.  Hemp fibre can be used in  the production of high quality  paper and clothing and...used to  be used in the production of  rope. Hemp does not replace  wood fibre and therefore will  not reduce logging.  The most telling argument  against hemp production in  Canada and, in fact, in most  temperate climates, is that there  is a far superior fibre which is  available at lower cost which is  being burnt in farmers fields  because of lack of demand. Of  course I refer lo flax. ,:  Its fibres are better than  hemp.  It is used in the production  of high quality clothing and  paper.  Oil from its seeds are used in  vast quantities by the paint  industry.  The residue goes into cattle  feed, fertilizers, the pharmaceutical industry and the food  industry.  Because of Ihe huge demand  for seed, the fibre is in great  oversupply and is usually burnt  in the fields.  Like hemp, the fibre is very  strong and durable and won't rot  in a reasonable time (its great  advantage in paper and clothing)  so it can't be composted or left  to lie on the fields. I am presently wearing a very comfortable  and hard wearing shirt made  from flax fibre (linen is the technical name).  So there you are. There is  absolutely no economic justification for growing hemp in  Canada except for the production of pot.  So what on earth are the  motives of our Ottawa bureaucrats in going behind our backs  and permitting the growing of  hemp?  F.

Unfortunately, Renfrew's  dream of breathing in clean air  has been diminished somewhat  by the appearance of thick  smoke around her Porpoise  Properties neighbourhood.  Like many residents of that  area, she is fuming. "I just want  to gel il sorted out why we have  so much pollution. I thought  we'd have clean air," said Renfrew following her showdown  with contractor Ray Stockwell at  a recent municipal environmental committee meeting.  Stockwell appeared at the  meeting to set the record straight  about Stockwell and Sons Ltd.'s  controversial application to  operate a commercial burn pit  on lands northeast of Sechelt  and 1.2 km from the regional  district landfill site.  While he insists that the fires  appearing in that area and  between the District of Sechelt  and regional district border are  strictly "accidental" and that the  proposed burn pit will pose no  health hazard to residents, Renfrew is not buying it.  Renfrew insists that these so-  called accidental burns are actually being set on purpose, and  anyone who is responsible for  these fires should be penalized.  "The point really comes  down to pollution," she said.  "The point I'm trying to make is  the burns that are going on,  regardless of who says what,  and they are not really legal."  At the April 26 environment  committee meeting, residents  complained bitterly of waking  up on April 14 to find their  neighbourhood engulfed in  smoke.  That fire was traced to a  nearby "accidental fire," apparently resulting from ashes,  buried many months earlier,  moving their way up to the surface and igniting nearby wood  debris.  Stockwell has denied accusations made by Porpoise Properties residents that he has been  purposely setting the fires  because he has not received  approval for his open-burn pit.  "Under the present method of  burning, I'm not digging the  ashes up," he said.  Renfrew said the number of  accidental burns will continue to  escalate as more development  occurs in the District of Sechelt,  particularly in Wesl Sechelt,  where residential development  is expected to increase over Ihe  next five years.  Renfrew is not against development, but says if developers  insist on clearing property, they  will have to find alternate means  of disposing of the waste. That  will likely result in increased  development costs, but she  believes it is the only solution to  eliminating contaminants in the  air.  "I don't know what is happening (in West Sechelt) but I  see it and I'm very concerned  about it. 1 just hope that wherever we see somebody going in to  develop, there are the proper  mechanisms in place to make  sure that there are some consequences," she said.  "Unfortunately, it seems as  though there are no consequences. If you and I were to  light up our incinerator in the  backyard, I'm sure we'd have  the District of Sechelt down our  throats immediately.  "The bottom line is, we just  can't have people lighting fires  at will and getting paid to do  Coast court diversion program accepted  by Ian Cobb  Justice is going to get personal on the Sunshine Coast.  Once someone is hired to run  the Community Accountability  Program, minor criminal matters  will be diverted from the court  system and a panel of community members will literally take  justice into their own hands.  "The Community Accountability Program (CAP) is in the  unique and beneficial position of  believing that unacceptable  social behavior can be rehabilitated while providing a benefit  to the community, satisfying the  needs of a victim as well as  serving the judicial process,"  said Sechelt RCMP Staff Sgt.

Therefore, if a person is arrested  for a minor offence for the first  time and it is determined the  offender is willing to be rehabilitated, they will be a prime candidates for the program.

I was sure ready to lambaste the lousy dog that did it.  I was just looking for a big  stick when out of the corner of  my eye I saw this big black blur,  not 30 feet away, take off up the  big fir tree right beside the house.  The black blur turned out to  be a 200- to 300-pound bear,  who then took up an uncomfortable perch on the huge branches  about 20 feet above the roof of  our house.  lt was a good thing it hadn't  been hungry enough to take after  me instead of heading up the  tree.  Ken was along the road at his  office, doing his usual last-  minute tax-return routine and by  the time I'd phoned the police,  and then my husband, to come  quick, a crowd of neighbours had  already gathered. The police  arrived immediately with a big  shotgun, which I didn't think  looked too promising for the  bear.  However, the police radioed  for regional conservation officer  Doug Pierce, who drove up about  45 minutes later, towing his  cage-type, bear-trap trailer.  Meanwhile, the bear and the  bear-watchers had all settled into  a wary stand-off.  A strategic planning session  followed. Doug thought that  shooting a tranquilizer dart into  the bear's rump from 30 feet  away was just too tricky a proposition. In any event, Ken and I  weren't too keen on the thought  of an angry but dopy bear falling  through the roof into our bathtub.  Doug decided lo appeal to the  bear's appetite for garbage.  The trailer cage was rolled  into the yard and blocked into  place at the base of the tree.  Planks were leaned against the  r^^s.  ____________.... .  *&�����    JV             v��\  k        ^         ^^  1 jb -  W��$&  r-1  BC Wildlife and Conservation oflicer Doug Pierce considers the  situation: a bear treed at Mission Point.  "wrong" side of the tree, up to  the roof.  On the "right" side, Doug  smeared a delicious assortment  of bacon grease,  chicken fat, ham-    _____  burger, molasses  and other bear  goodies down the  trunk and into the  cage.  Half of Ken's  chicken dinner  joined other treats  in a mesh bag       hanging at the far  end of the trip ���  the trigger to slam the cage door  shut.  The neighbours were ordered  back to their windows and Doug  settled into his pickup in anticipation of the action, while com-  Tbe bear and the  bear-watcbers bad  all settled into a  wary stand-off  make a nuisance of themselves  during crucial Stanley Cup playoff games.  It took the better part of an  hour for the bear  ^_^_     to clamber down  onto the roof and,  after surveying  the   scene,   to  climb    further  down ��� on the  "right" side of the  tree ��� to lick the  grease off the tree  trunk and slowly  eat its way into  the open cage. It  sniffed at the hanging bag, but  turned its first attention to the  hamburger and molasses on the  floor. Would the bear pull the  trigger?  Another anxious five minutes  plaining mildly about bears that     passed while Doug considered  his options if the bear didn't pull  Ihe trap trigger. But finally the  bear finished its fiist course and  turned to the dessert in the bag. It  grabbed it and the cage door  slammed shut. The Great Mission Point Bear Caper was over  at 9:30 pm.  "We have a lot of complaints  about bears around this time of  the year," says Doug. "This one  had been causing problems for  several days in the district.  We've also had several others  this week ��� at Egmont,  Tuwanek and other places. It's  not easy to catch them. We were .  lucky this time. I was afraid that  it would be scared off by passing  people or dogs."  The guest in the cage was a  handsome, healthy, two-year-old,  shiny black bear.  "But look at Ihe tag in its left  ear," said Doug. "It's already  been trapped once. It'll get its  second earring for this little caper  before it's released. But next  time it happens, I'm afraid it's  finished. When they get hooked  on garbage, most of these bears  never learn. If it was in the Vancouver area, it wouldn't even get  a second chance."  After the trailer was hitched to  his pickup, Doug started the long  drive to the logging roads as far  up the inlet as possible, where  trie bear would be tranquilized  and released ��� hopefully to  enjoy life in the wilds, separated  from humanity.  As Ken and I drove his tax  return into the Sechelt Post  Office just before the midnight  deadline, we each reflected on  our respective close calls ���  mine with a hungry bear, and his  with the hungry tax collectors.  "I can't really imagine convincing those guys that my tax  return was late because 1 had a  bear up my tree," Ken said.  ���Flora Gunning, a summer  camper at Mission Point for 32  years, is now a permanent resident.  Optometrists issue warning to ecUps&watchers  Direct viewing of the May 10  partial eclipse of the sun can be  dangerous, warns the president  of the BC Association of  Optometrists.  "Every lime there's an  eclipse, retinal burns and permanent eye damage are reported,"  said Dr. Rix Graham. "We'd  like to see everyone safely enjoy  this phenomenon, so we are recommending that people watch it  on television."  On May 10 by 9:26 am PST,  about half the sun will be  eclipsed by the moon along the  western Canada/US border, with  even less covered at points further north. The path of maximum eclipse follows a line from  Nova Scotia to Northwest Mexico. The eclipse is annular,  meaning the moon's position  allows for total blockage except  for a thin ring of light around  the circumference.  The association is concerned  with previous reports of eye  injuries to large numbers of  eclipse-watchers, where sunglasses, exposed film, some  types of welder's goggles and  so-called 'eclipse      glasses' using  mylar sheets were  used as unsuitable  protection against  the sun's harmful  ultra-violet rays.  "Besides, people in BC will  only see 50 per ���������  cent or less of the  sun blocked by the moon," said  Graham. "It's far too bright to  see and there's no sensation of  darkness. On the other hand, TV  cameras will be situated under  the pathway of near totality. Not  only is this more spectacular,  but it includes expert common-  We'd like to see  everyone safely  enjoy this  phenomenon  ���Dr. Rix Graham  above all, it's safe."  After the 1979 eclipse, a survey by the Canadian Association of Optometrists reported 20  cases of eye damage in Canada.  In 1970, 145 cases were reported in the US, with  40 per cent resulting from people  using what they  thought were protective devices.  "The burns to  the retina, or back  of the eye, are  painless and can  happen in seconds," said Graham. "In many  cases, damage is permanent."  Many problems are caused  by using incorrect or damaged  filters, or improper use of  devices that are supposed to protect the eyes, said Graham. He  also warned against using tele-  other devices that increase the  intensity of the sun's rays.  The next solar eclipse in BC  will not be until March 1997,  following a line between Prince  George and the northern tip of  Vancouver Island. The southern  portion of the province will not  see a solar eclipse until the year  2000.

The 4th annual Creek Dancing and Gumboot  Games held at the Creek Picnic  site were well attended by many  oldtime Creekers. Good music,  good food and good fellowship  seemed to fit festivities on a  balmy Sunday.  Meanwhile, down the road  behind the Gumboot Garden  Cafe was the first day of the  'working village market.' With  10 craft booths, neat entertainment and an avid crowd, the  event ran until 3:30 pm when the  cool nip in the air finally won  out.  The market will run every  Sunday throughout the summer  beginning at 10 am with produce  and crafts. Overall entertainment  will begin at 1 pm while the children's entertainment will begin  at 2 pm, with both running until  3 pm.

Gwen  Abrams of the Beached Bird Survey estimates the bull lion,  weighing up to three quarters of a  ton, died of natural causes and  was brought in on a high tide.  Only an extremely high tide  could wash it off the beach and  even so, chance* are it could be  brought in again by the tide further down the beach into Davis  Bay.  Conservation Officer Doug  Pierce states that his department  is not responsible, largely due to  budget, for dead animals nor  JVW Check out  Artist of the month display  Clearance specials continue  Many new books in stock  Sunshine Coast  March for Jesus-June 25  Ask at store for details  Cone in and browse  marine mammals, but only for  live wildlife and/or animals  injured on the road. He suggests  that rope* be put around the lion  and it be towed out to sea at high  tide where it will eventually sink,  tt is all part of nature's balance.  ' There have been some Ideas  of cremating the carcass, but  Pierce remarks that it wouldn't  bum as it is 98 per cent water and  would only result in a blackened  hulk.  A picture in the Coast News  last week of a group of young  people on the beach at Gower  Point, circa 1938, jogged the  memory of one of those boys.  Ken Gunning of Mission Point  saw himself as a young lad and it  conjured up fond memories of  summers ipent on the Coast.  A late-breaking news item  regarding thd lea lion ��� the  Sechelt Indian Band (SIB)  arrived on the scene after being  informed of the dilemma and  trucked it away to be buried. It  seems there are several sea lions  washing up dead after being shot,  supposedly by fishermen. Bouquets to the SIB for their caring  gesture.  Tritkaidekaphobia? Is it a new  Greek dish?

I  shouldn't really say visitors ���  one is my sister and the other is a  very good friend. So I've had  family staying with me. One  other special little visitor I should  mention is Mowgli, a lhasa apso  who thinks she's a lion. Don't  they all? She's a sweetheart  although my own two geriatric  cocker spaniels would probably  have another name for her. During Ihis last week, names like  halfmoon happenings  Sweet Grass, Nahanni, Fort  Chippewan, Fort Fitzgerald and  Hay River have cropped up in  conversation. To me they sound  like poetry.

A special secretary  During Secretaries Week, 10-  and-one-half-year-old Tanya  Davis felt compelled to write to  the CFUN secretary contest. She  wrote:  "My name is Tanya Davis. I  am 10 and one half years old. I  go to Halfmoon Bay elementary  school, Sunshine Coast. I'm writing to you because I would like  to enter your secretary contest. I  think that our secretary, Mrs.  Kelly, is the best secretary in the  world because if you need something, badaboom, you got it! So  if you go into her office with a  bloody knee and she looks really  busy, (but it's just a disguise) she  will say, 'Are you alright, do you  need a band-aid?' and will help  you out. She's always there when  you need her and is never in a  bad mood. We all think she's the  best! Your best fan, Tanya  Davis."

There is  still a little time left to prepare a  float, so get cracking.  Following is some advice as to  how to start. First you form a  committee that plans what your  float should be and/or represent;  usually it depicts some political  satire, so let's say we put the  Minister of Environment riding  an elk on the float. That motion  was accepted and now the committee is looking for an appro*  priate undercarriage to build this  monstrous scene and at some  farm, an old hay wagon was  found.  Next come the welders who  fabricate all sorts of superstructure from pipe and angle iron,  which makes the elk and the  rider make all the moving  motions. After that, concrete-  rebar gets welded around Ihis to  make up the main appearance.  The rebar gets covered with  chicken wire in such a way that  it is now looking like the previously mentioned animal and its  rider.  Now the women come into  the picture with old telephone  books and paste. Each page gets  ripped out, pasted, and one corner of the page gets folded over  and into the chicken wire. When  the whole float is thus covered,  layer after layer after layer of  old newspapers get pasted onto  this until a firm, hard body is  accomplished and is followed  by a layer of waterproof paper.  Next come the artists with  their paint pots and brushes. The  brightest colours are preferred,  although the elk should remain  Sen ing the Sunshine Coast since 1945  MHJlKN CUP AWARD  COFFEE  it DANNY'S  COFFEE HiiI'SE 4_MI1TEL  OHMom'-'ni   HMttl""  (Soast Mjews  StRVINt, TUB liROWIiW; Kl'NSIIINK COAST ���  liilnunt.

Over those years we've  watched the world change around us while we've remained steady as a rock, providing a safe, reliable  institution for your advertising dollar.  The first issue of the Coast News rolled off the presses on July 11,1945, providing in-depth coverage for the  Coast's little more than 500 residents. Today, we're still covering the Coast for its 25,000-plus residents,  faithfully marking the passage of every week in history.  Life is too variable to predict what the next 50 years will hold, but with your support the constant will be the  COAST^NEWS  brown/grey. After a few coats of  that, you are ready and hope to  win first prize.  During the parade the elk  staggers up and down trying to  get rid of the rider, who is hanging on for dear life and his head  is swaying left and right, up and  down. All this is accomplished  by people inside and underneath, who manipulate bars and  pulleys, ropes and ratchets. It  makes a wonderful sight.  For better effect you could  have the elk coming out of a  forest and heading into a  farmer's field. Very effective.  But we have been to a few communities where there were some  30 groups, each building a  parade float and each group  consisting of about 40 people  and there were only 1,200 people living in the village. So they  advertised all around to come  and see their parade because all  of the village was in it.  This is a true story; the last  one who told it is still alive. So  there is your start for May Day,  1994, Saturday, May 21. Come  all out and support this PH community club big day.  PH Lioness' car rally  This car rally scavenger hunt  will be held on Friday, May 20  and all registrations have to be  in before May 13, so hurry.  Please phone president Arlene  at 883-2406.  Resident honoured  The BC Health Association  has presented Pender Harbour  resident William Griffith with a  certificate for long service to  the medical welfare of his community.  In making the presentation,  the Association described Griffith as "a driving force behind  the Pender Harbour and District  Health C^ntr'ed for almostJ2d'Lri  years." GHffith was wasoriedf'1  lS^dttiiiilni mtmVhia SPtfiiP ,v  Pender Harbour and District  Health Centre Society, formed  in 1974 to garner community  and government support to  build a health centre, procure a  full-time physician and provide  an ambulance. The health centre  became a reality in 1976.  Griffith served as a director  on the board from 1979 to 1982  egmont news  and from 1985 until the present,  eight of the last nine years as  president.  He also worked with other  health care agencies, such as St.  Mary's Hospital, Mental Health  and Continuing Care and served  for two years on the Comprehensive Health Organization.  Committee, attended Heallh Initiative Forums and New DK��^A0  lions meetings, "all with the  inTenf'df gaining Iftftght lirttb '  providing affordable heath cafe  to an outlying area," the Association release said.  "He deserves to be recognized for the outstanding job he  has done as a member of the  board and the community.  Health care in Pender Harbour  would not be as accessible as it  is without his contributions."  by Maureen Parrott, 883-9189  Cherry blossoms finished last  week, but dogwood and apple are  blooming merrily.  A sow bear with cub was  sighted last week. Black bears  are common visitors in early  spring. They forage wherever  they can until berry time, then  move up the mountains. Keep  your garbage inside or wrap it so  the bears can't smell it; that's a  good precaution against dogs and  raccoons, too.  Egmont Community Club  membership came due at New  Year's. When you drop by to pay  Betty ($42 ensures you a voice in  running the community in 1994  and discounts at Egmont events),  let her know whether you have  any first aid training or volunteer  fire department experience;  we're putting together an emergency call list.  Mark your calendar: Egmont  Day will be Saturday, June 4. As  well as allowing Shirley and Bill  Hall's grandkids to attend, that  date will give Russell Silvey one  more crack at a fishing derby  before his 13th birthday three  days later.  Flo Williams is relieved to see  her friends again as her eyesight  improves after an operation to fix  her cataracts.  Another operation extended  the BC visit of my mother-in-  law, Helen Parrott, now recovering in Surrey Memorial Hospital  and feeling better every day.  John and Katie Devlin are  feeling better after a bout of illness, which fortunately did not  strike until after Katie's surprise  75th birthday party. John and  Katie had gone to visit a niece  and nephew in Tsawassen and  found family gathered from as  far twty as Ontario. Katie's  daughters Elsie, Gloria and Margaret, son Waller Andruzko and  daughter-in-law Sandra all came  up to Egmont for a visit afterward.  Powell River bike racer  suffers serious injury  Tragedy marred the seventh  annual Middlepoint Motorcross  race Sunday, May 1, when 26-  year-old David Hanson of Powell River was critically injured in  a bjking accident south of  Haslam Lake.  Hanson, competing in the  motorcross division, was entering his second lap when he lost  control during a jump at the sand  pit, slamming head first into the  opposite sand bank.  Ambulance crews dispatched  to the scene ordered an emergency helicopter evacuation shortly  after arriving. On Thursday,  Hanson was still in the intensive  spinal care centre at Vancouver  General and was slated for  surgery; his condition on Sunday  was listed as "stable." Hanson  was one of 29 competitors in this  year's race. Pender Harbour  Motorcycle club organizer Lois  Ross said about 100 spectators  turned out for the 4.5 km event.  Ross said the mishap was the  first serious accident in the  seven-year history of the race,  and she didn't think it was going  to change the way the race is  run. "People do get hurt sometimes. It's a sports event, but we  are very concerned about his  condition."  :  i   :  ______________m___a  _________  mm  ______  SM^-A Coast News, May 9,1994  sports  Newspaper to  honour coaches  Without coaches and their  volunteer time and efforts,  sporting programs for our youth  would diminish and dissolve.  And far too often these people who selflessly give up their  after-work and weekend hours,  usually meaning time away  from their families, go unnoticed.  With this in mind, the Coasl  News/Weekender has entered a  Coach Recognition Program in  concert with 3M Canada to recognize these individuals.  Starting in the next issue of  the Weekender, nomination  forms will appear in the sports  section.  If you know a coach you  believe is deserving of this  award, complete the nomination  form and mail or fax it to the  paper (Box 460, Oibsons, BC  VON IVO/ fax-886-7725: Attention Ian Cobb).  A local selection committee  will be set up to review the  nominations and select the winning coach(es).  No more than four can be  award-winners and they will be  featured in the paper.  Winners will be judged on  their ability to demonstrate  respect for officials, opponents  and parents and espouse a philosophy of fair play, and demonstrate a concern for the all-round  development of the athlete and  instill guidelines reflecting  responsible conduct beyond the  playing field.  In addition, they must be able  to present a positive image of  coaching, demonstrate an ability  to improve the athletic performance of a team or an individual, and apply relevant training  theory and coaching techniques.  Note: the nominated coaches  must have coached at least two  years and coaches in all sports,  team and individual, are open  for nomination. Coaches must  reside and coach on the Sunshine Coast.  Deadline for submissions is  Monday, June 6.  glbsons minor ball standings  Hundreds ol young ball players will be swarming throughout the Qibsons area  on May 28 collecting refundable bottles/tins ol your favourite beverage.

"They" were saying two  weeks ago lhat it didn't matter  one fetid dingo's kidney  whether or not the winner of the  Lower Mainland division three  Rugby Championship played  teams from the provincial interior lo decide the provincial title  because the Lower Mainland  champs would pulverize the  interior rugger players and they  should be spared the expense of  a trip to Kamloops to prove this  point.  The Gibsons Pigs Rugby  Club just happened to be the  Lower Mainland representatives,  thanks lo a 17-9 win over the  Kelowna Crows April 23 at  Langdale Elementary School  and they made the "they" sector  look good as they more than  pulverized Interior Rugby Union  clubs last weekend to claim their  first ever provincial crown.  Case in point; the Pigs scored  their first try just 14 seconds  into the first of two games May  7.  With a strong contingent of  players large enough to stock  two teams, and about 25 Sun  shine Coast residents on hand at  the Kamloops Exhibition Centre  to lend voice to the Pigs' quest,  the Gibsons side was merciless  against the Interior sides.  Gulping huge amounts of  water to counter the hot, arid  conditions (temperatures were in  the 26- to 30-degree C range)  the Pigs ran roughshod over  Nelson and put them away 29-0.  - Unfortunately for Nelson and  the Prince George Barbarians,  they had to play right after and  then, with nary a moment to  reflect on their task at hand, the  Barbarians had to square off  against the Pigs beneath a cruel  4 pm sun.  The Pigs, used to playing in  cool, wet, sea-level conditions,  obviously found the dry, high  country air of Kamloops to be  more than acceptable as they  pummeled Ihe northern team 57-  0 to claim, finally, the provincial  title.  The first-ever provincial  crown was the culmination of a  four-year plan, Pigs  player/coach Drew Murphy said  following the game.  "This is the fruition of a four-  year plan. We've worked together with a goal and that goal was  achieved today."  Another Pigs player, wt  the Coast News knows onl;  Dave, said the score of the f  game didn't paint an accui  picture of the intensity of  match.  "It was a very hard-fou  game. The score was not indi  live of the play. They (Prii  George) just came up short o  few occasions."  Game sheets weren't avt  able at press time to outline  scoring progress of the Pij  however, Paul Smith figut  prominently in the final gan  scoring what the Coast Nc  has learned were "beauco,  tries."  Drew Murphy also manag  to fight off a hot, dry wind in t  added duty as kicker since reg  lar kicker Dave Strom was n  playing.  Also, considering the score  the man responsible for lin<  outs, prop Bob Cowie, als  played a huge game.  First-year player Ro  Etheridge scored his first try i  the year against Prince George.  Pictures and scoring detail  of the Pigs plundering of th  provincial mid-section will b  available in the Weekender.

Club chair Stan Anderson  has approached the District of  Sechelt about "borrowing" in  perpetuity two-and-a-half acres  of land at the arena as soon as  possible. Anderson said the club  is at risk of being evicted from  its current quarters beside the  Wakefield Inn.  "Time is of the essence  here...we could be out on i  ttftAient's QOH2B,* he told a  recent meeting of the municipal  planning committee.  The owners of the Wakefield  Inn property, which also  includes the land on which the  current facility is located, have  indicated they are trying to sell  the business.  If sold, the club would have  no other choice but to move or  dissolve.  If the club is able to retain  land at no cost from the municipality, Anderson foresees the  initial construction of two  indoor courts and two outdoor  courts.  Two more indoor courts  would be added at a later date.  "I recognize that is quite a  large program but in the field of  planning it's better to plan for  10 years instead of two,"  Anderson said.  The cost of constructing the  courts is estimated at $300,000  and would be raised through  donations from the public and  club members. Anderson  assured members of the committee that taxpayers would not  have lo pay for the construction  of the racquet facility.  If constructed, the courts  would be open to the public on  a pay-to-play basis and maintained with volunteer help.  Anderson said parking is  "not a real consideration"  because tennis is "not a high-  traffic sport."  Doug Reid, a member of the  club's sub-committee, emphasized the need to relocate as  soon as possible.  "They can give us a day's  notice and we are oul of there,"  Reid said.  The club consists of 80  members and it is expected lhat  number will increase with the  development of a new facility.  The proposal has been  referred to the parks and recreation committee for further  EXPERIENCED CARPENTER  tor Nre.

There are only  1,111 tickets to be sold, so $20 a  ticket buys a pretty good chance  at a prize.  The prizes will be on display  alternately at Trail Bay Mall in  Sechelt and Sunnycrest Mall in  Gibsons on Saturdays, starting  with the one that just went by.  The draw will take place at  Langdale School on June IS.  Need more information?

Vernon, has ordered all former  cadets to attend. Well, actually,  he's requested permission to  board this column and ask former cadets to turn out for the  affair.  Oldtimers will be coming  from all over the world to meet  each other and to visit with this  year's intake of 1,400 boys and  girls, Gourley says.  If everyone turns up for the  planned merriment, they'll  make quite a crowd.  Gourley says that since 1949,  "more than 135,000 young  Canadians aged 13-17 have  elected to spend some summers  at the Vernon Army Cadet  Camp in (where else?) Vernon."  Follow orders and volunteer  for merriment duty by calling  the Reunion Hotline number at  (604) 268-9977 or wrile to Kenneth Gourley at Box 88560,  101-13753 72nd Avenue, Surrey, BC, V3W 0X1.

(Salmon 'Chanted  Evening is not our fault, by the  way, it's the name of a recipi  from Jean Pari, one of the literary lights who contributed to the  book.)  The book, which sells for  $15, is a potpourri of literary  and culinary delights from the  likes of W. P.

Don't  forget to include that all-important cheque.  The proceeds go to the Festival.  (We were in this from the  beginning in a second-hand sort  of way; Keller and Glassford  Press graphic designer Roger  Handling had big-time huddles  over the book al the Coast News  office where Handling hangs  out with his usually trusty computer named Degas.)

Joel Johnstone  remember when  5 YEARS AGO  The clearing of a small lot at the mouth of Roberts Creek was  swiftly accomplished last Thursday as man and machine laid waste a  piece of land that locals felt should have been made part of the SCRD  park. Said Bob Michor, a representative of the property owner: "The  SCRD would probably have got a deal two years ago bul they never  made a serious offer. Now it's the only building lot in Roberts  Creek."  In spite of attempts to trim its budget to the bone, Sechelt council  brought in a 1989 budget last week that will see residential tax rates  go up 50 per cent. This increase will change Sechelt's ranking as the  lowest residential tax rate in the province to the fifth lowest.  10 YEARS AGO  Tony Duffy not only won the 119-pound Junior Golden Gloves  title last weekend but was also named 1984 Golden Boy and selected  to represent BC at the Canadian championships in Vancouver. Duffy,  who recently captured the Kelso Evergreen 119-pound title in a tournament against competitors from Washington, Oregon and California, attributes his recent success to the tedious training program he's  been following.  In considering a recommendation by the Parks Committee that an  application by Tom and Linda May of Cockburn Bay Sea Farms to  operate a fish hatchery on Chapman Creek be approved, regional  board chairman Jim Gurney recently reminded directors that they  could not adopt a motion which contravenes the board's own bylaws  or goes against its own land use regulations.  15YEARSAGO  There was no space for wall flowers at Pender Harbour Secondary  School's Grease Day Dance because everyone was jiving and whatever else they did in the '50s.  Scores of youngsters, their parents and other area residents turned  out to participate in a highly successful Fun Fair at Roberts Creek  elementary school.  25 YEARS AGO  The Roberts Creek committee working towards the organization  of a fire department has purchased an unused fire truck from Sechelt  for the price of $1.  35 YEARS AGO  The pace of events leading towards Sechelt's May Day parade is  increasing now that the May Day queen has been selected. She is  Leila McDonald and her attendants will be Heather Lang and Avril  Crucil.  It was announced at the Sechelt Board of Trade regular meeting  that James Parker was named a director of the BC Chamber of Commerce.  45 YEARS AGO  Mackenzie Liberals named Ban Mclntyre as coalition government  candidate for the June provincial election.  ���Compiled by Bev Shipley  <t\*aSta.lAjtl  50% off  new urleans Praises  10 days* October 13  from $2030* CAD  7 days* November 6  from $1630* CAD  May 31  All special pneing include 50% discount, airfare from/to VancoMj, all transfers  airport to pier, pier to airport, all on board meals and shipboard entertainment.  885-8S64   ��� 1-800-661-2780  ��� Prices are based on per person, double occupancy  Port charges additional Certain restrictions apply  CLEAR THE AIR  �� Reduce air pollution  ^_     from residential wood smoke  ���M5S     and auto emissions with tips  ���\,  '$ from your Lung Association.  f  B.C.
