If Ihere is no water, it will  mean that the Sechelts made  good on their threat to cut off the  supply lo support their longstanding claim for land to replace  the utilities corridor  over which the water  pipe runs. _____  The band's chief  and council were  scheduled to meel  with officials of Ihe  provincial Ministry  of Aboriginal Affairs  Saturday (Feb. 11) in  an attempt to avert  the threatened shut- ~~~T'  down of the district's  main water supply.  "We recognize there is a longstanding issue here that needs to  be resolved and the thing now is  to find the means of doing so,"  Aboriginal affairs minister John  Cashore said prior to the meeting.  Meanwhile, the Sunshine  Coast Regional District has  -admitted it has no contingency  plan should the band cut the  'water supply.  "We haven't got any plans if  'they did do it," declared SCRD  fchair Peggy Connor. "We certainty would not be very happy if  Ihey did do it."  j   The band's threat to cut off the  pule with the province.  In an agreement made in the  early 1970s, the band allowed the  public water pipeline through its  land in exchange for 25 acres of  It's been 20  years...'  -Garry Feschuk  crown land elsewhere. To date,  no exchange of land has taken  place. "It's been 20 years and  nothing has even been finalized,"  said band chief Garry Feschuk.  Cutting off the water supply is  "the only legal tool that we can  use to have them respond lo us."  Should the pipeline be shut  down by Ihe band, residents in  Sechelt, West Sechelt, Secret  Cove and East Porpoise Bay  would be left without  water service.  __ However, at press  time, both Cashore and  Feschuk were hopeful  the weekend meeting  would end the dispute.  "I am very hopeful that  this (meeting) will  move   the   scenario  away from that type of  "���~     an action that had been  mentioned," Cashore,  said. .  The band had hoped the water  pipeline threat would also serve  to resurrect discussions with the  government on its outstanding  land claim.  But the minister said Friday  (Feb. 11) that other, more comprehensive land claims will not  be on the table this month.  Assistant deputy minister  Randy Brant has been assigned to  deal with the Sechelts on their  land claim between now and  early March when a meeting  between the band and Cashore  has been scheduled.  Cashore said he was not pre-  MtSditt answer whether the band  TmB dWWI lA lUW! Wlihd clainT.-  heard outside the bureaucracy of  the provincial Treaty Commission at that time.

Joel Johnstone pholo  Horse ranch proposal submitted for West Sechelt  by Don Anderson  The residents of East Porpoise  Bay may have a new neighbor.  Local developer Jerg Fisher is  proposing lo build a large-scale,  multi-family subdivision on a  tract of land covering 95 acres.  The multi-million-dollar development includes a horse ranch  and commercial operations.  "We just feel the area has  been untapped and under-utilized," said Clark Hamilton of  Schori Consultants. "Il's been a  long time coming."  Schori Consultants is working  with Fisher's Tatlayoko Lake  Ranch Ltd. firm to secure the  exclusion of the land from the  agricultural land reserve (ALR).  If the provincial Land Commission approves Ihe application, Ihe  developer will proceed wilh its  plans over Ihe next two years.  The District of Sechelt council  passed a resolution to support the  application at its Feb. 1 meeting.  If the land is developed, it  would effectively double the size  of the village, which has traditionally been the home to industrial-based businesses including a  gravel pit. The land is located off  Sechelt Inlet Road overlooking  Porpoise Bay.  "It's ideal land for development," Hamilton said.  The land was originally targeted for a nine-hole golf course  development to compliment an  80-100 room hotel to be constructed on neighboring property  on the west side of Sechell Inlet  Road.  That property is also owned  by Fisher, developer of the  Wharf Street Mall.  Hamilton said the appearance  of the municipally-owned  Sechelt Golf and Country Club  near the Sechelt Ice Arena and its  subsequent expansion to 18 holes  has made the development of  another golf course less appealing.  He believes the development  is a "natural extension of  Sechelt" and has "all kinds of  positive characteristics," including meeting the current housing  demand. "For one thing, I think  it is one of Ihe most beautiful  areas on the Coast," he said.  The land commission will be  meeting at the end of this month  to review the application.  "Until we know which attitude they take, it ii difficult to  say when and what will happen,"  said Rob Buchan. municipal  planner and approving officer for  the District of Sechelt.  The developmeni is not without its detractors, however.  Adrian Hovestad, chair of the  East Porpoise Bay Ratepayers  Association, has expressed concern over council's support of the  exclusion of the land from the  ALR.  After 60-plus years, Sechelt couples proving love never dies  by Don Anderson  Romance is ageless, at least in  the eyes of Sechelt couple W.M.  'Bill' Cormack and his wife Mildred.  The Cormacks have been married 60 and a half years and the  love Ihey first fell back in 1925  when they were dating at the University of Manitoba is just as  strong today as it was then, if not  more so.  Interestingly, cupid's aim was  a little off, at first, but after a couple of more tries, he finally connected. "By the time we graduated  we knew this was going to go on,"  says Mildred during a pre-Valentines Day interview at their waterfront home in Davis Bay.  The Cormacks are an ideal  example of never-ending love.  Last week, the couple sat down in  their warm and cosy living room  to talk about their lives together,  the miles Ihey have covered and  the real meaning behind romance.  "Somebody arranged a date,"  recalls Mildred, a youthful 84-  year-old teacher, and grandmother  several times over.  "And I went with him and I  debated whether I wanted to have  anything to do with him."  Mildred, formerly of Reston,  Manitoba, was 16 at the time,  studying sciences and home economics; Bill was a sturdy and  enterprising youth of 17 from  Shorncllffe residents Walter and Eileen James, married for 65  years, share a moment together. Don Anderson photo  Rossburn, Manitoba, studying  agriculture. Their first dale  involved the typical dating fare ���  a movie, popcorn, soda and light  conversation.  Did he ever try lo kiss her?  "Good gracious no!" says Mildred excitedly.  After some consideration, she  accepted a second dale wilh Bill,  and then a third and fourth.  By the time they graduated in  1930, Ihey were full-fledged  sweethearts. Marriage didn't  come until three years later ���  because "we couldn't afford to,"  chimes in Bill. Before they were  married, Iheir relationship had to  endure a three-year separation  while Bill worked in Edmonton.  Daring the doom and gloom of  what would become known as Ihe  Dirty Thirties, Bill and Mildred  married and spent the next 13  years living on Bill's monthly  income of $139, all the while  attempting to raise Ihree children.  "We had an awful amount of  fun even though we had no  money," recalls Bill, now 85 and  a veteran of agricultural-related  jobs around the world before retiring to the Sunshine Coast in Ihe  late '60s.  The Cormacks are admittedly a  combination of different personalities and interests. But despite  their differences, they continue to  travel the world together, rarely  missing a continent.  Mildred estimates Ihey have  visited more than 50 countries,  including Communist Russia,  Denmark, Sweden, Kenya and  Italy.As far as advice goes to  young couples entering the wilds  of romance, Mildred is succinct  "If you want a perfect marriage, many someone you can talk  to...and go in expecting to make  il lasl."  One of Sechelt's oldest couples  can be found still holding hands at  Shorncliffe Lodge in Sechell after  65 years of marriage.  Unlike the Cormacks, Walter  and Eileen James have faced constant struggle through their marriage. The relationship was often  sent spiralling to Ihe edge of disaster by Walter's haphazard pursuit of a singing and performing  career and Eileen's strict religious  background.  The couple met at a birthday  party in Lynn Valley on Sept. 27,  1928. Walter, 25 years old at the  time, had arrived at the party with  another girl, but was taken aback  by 23-year-old Eileen across the  room.  He asked his date who the  woman was and if he could meet  her. Less than three months later  Walter and Eileen were married.  Marriage was less than a picnic  for the young couple, whose fortunes turned sour with the  onslaught of the Depression. Walter was subsequently laid off from  Imperial Oil and moved with his  wife and children to Seattle to  operate a donut distribution business. He went to the Stales with  $1500 and returned to Vancouver  not long after with $125. With his  wife recovering from a psychologically exhausting illness, Walter picked up work as a longshoreman wherever he could.  Life eventually improved for  the couple with Ihe arrival of the  war, and they were actually able  to build a home in North Vancouver. Walter alternated between his  passion for the stage and the  necessity of a regular income.  Waller has admittedly lived a  somewhat "stray cat" lifestyle for  much of his life, but nowadays he  is a constant companion to his  wife, rarely leaving her side.  Asked if there is still romance  after 65 years of marriage, Walter  hesitantly replies, "no."  But there is some hope in the  way he says it.  "I will kiss her goodnight or  sometimes not, and she will fondle my hand once in a while.

The  building suffered  extensive damage.  Darah Hansen photo  Burst pipe closes seniors complex  by Darah Hansen  A burst waterline has forced the Seniors  Centre complex in Sechelt to close its doors.  Waler escaping from a pipeline under the  building last week caused severe structural  damage to the walls and floors, said Stan  Johnston, the local senior citizens' association president.  "It's what you call a 'helluva' mess."  As a result, the building may remain  closed until after the summer.  The water pipeline burst Thursday (Feb.  10) morning at approximately 9 am.

Mackereth described the sound of Ihe  water coming up through the floors as "pretty near deafening."  Sechelt public works department,  responding to an emergency call from the  centre, turned off the water shortly after the  line burst but not before significant damage  was done to the building.  Mud and water have ruined much of the  carpeting throughout the complex and, under  the pressure of water spraying from the burst  pipe, the floor boards were lifted and walls  shifted. Johnson said the hallway area of the  building where most of the damage occurred  will likely have to be dug oul and rebuilt.  Cost of the damage was not available at  press time.  The seniors complex was newly built and  opened in November 1992. The seniors paid  $900,000 for the complex from money saved  by the seniors' association over a period of  approximately 20 years and through government grants.  The centre has a 1994 membership of 500  Coast residents. The building is used for a  variety of community activities including  dances, craft fairs and meetings.  Btgfrtct of Skrbf It  P.O.

Regular Council  Meetings  Regular council meetings are held the 1 st  and 3rd Wednesday of every month at  7:30 p.m. in the Municipal Hall, 5545 Inlet  Avenue.  Mayor's  Hotline  885-5360  Small lots result of public  demand, according to MacBlo  by Darah Hansen  Small, urban-sized lots on a  proposed 312-acre subdivision  in West Sechelt is what people  want, says property owner  MacMillan Bloadet -���> *      . 1  And MacBlo has adjusted its  development propositi jo accordance with the pubnFTr&ioMi,  said company development representative Nora Stevenson.  MacBlo's development proposal, formally presented to  Sechelt council last November,  contains plans to create a 330-  squaie-metre lot size suitable for  single-family development.  To do this, the company has  requested the district of Sechelt  consider an amendment to both  the town's current zoning bylaw  and to its future Official Community Plan, expected to be  finalized this year.  Presently, district bylaws do  not allow for lot sizes smaller  than 500 square metres for a single-family dwelling.  What MacBlo is now proposing is a "very urban type density...similar to what you'd find in  Vancouver," said Sechelt town  planner Rob Buchan.  Stevenson said MacBlo's  request for smaller lot sizes  stems from last summer's public  open house meetings where the  company first presented its  development plans.  ���,.,. 1'     '.'.        |, .1. 1 ���. ���,  ,H'W*fflaM$W��l  density... similar to  what you'd find in  Vancouver'  ���Hob Buchan  Local response was for more  "affordable housing," she said.  Smaller, clustered housing  further allows for more park  space, another issue high on the  list of public concerns.  Stevenson said the majority  of the company's plans have not  changed since the proposal was  put before the public.  Specific developmeni plans  for the property include a mix of  976 single-family houses and  280 multi-family units.  About 13-20 per cent of the  property would be set aside as  ."green space" which would  include some natural tree stands,  hiking trails and buffer zones  near creeks.  If it goes ahead, the development woidd Rrafoundljjrp^fcct  Ihe Dislricl of Suchek, ��<Jdi��g.pn  estimated 3,000 people to the  "pc#!iW<ion over fiiU'l,jfJtlr  period.  But a rezoning of the property ��� required for the subdivision to go ahead ��� isn't likely  to happen in the very near  future, as sewage plant constraints and the community plan  review are still being dealt with  by Ihe District.  Buchan said no work has yet  been done by the planning  department lo process the application.  Because of Ihe size of the  development and its potential  impaci on the town of Sechelt  and its services, "there are a lot  of things I will need 10 be reassured of personally before taking Ihe application to council,"  Buchan added.  Under ils current zoning as a  privale Iree farm, the assessed  value of MacBlo's West Sechelt  property is about $126,600.  Wife-killer's sentencing delayed  Sentencing of an Edmonton man convicted of  manslaughter in connection to the 1992 death of  his wife has been adjourned until nexl month.  Dragan Zagorac, 48, will appear in Alberta  Court of Queen's Bench in Edmonton March 3  after a judge and jury found him guilty of  manslaughter last month.  sechelt council notes  Zagorac was arrested in Gibsons by local  RCMP Ocl. 16, 1993 following a nalion-wide  search. Zagorac's wife, 37-year-old Ruth Farfan,  was found suffering from severe head injuries outside Ihe Edmonton apartment she shared with her  husband in September, 1992.  She later died of her injuries.  School safety  A letter written to school  board trustees from concerned  parents al Cedar Grove Elementary School has prompted a new  look at the issue children's safely on school grounds.  The letter, signed by Tom  Williams on behalf of the personal safety committee al Ihe  elementary school, highlighted  "unanimous concern" among  parents on Ihe lack of standard  visible identification worn by  district staff who visit the  schools.  In particular, the committee  was concerned about maintenance staff on the school  grounds.  With identification tags, "students, parents and school staff  (would) know the bearer is  authorized to be on the school  grounds," the letter said.  The matter was raised by the  committee in January after significant construction had  occurred on Ihe school grounds,  bringing an abundance of unfamiliar faces lo Ihe school site.  The board approved a motion  that will bring the matter to the  attention of each district school  and allow the respective administrative staff lo deal wilh Ihe  issue on an individual school  basis.  Cosntructlon funding  Ministry   of   Education  approval for a $2 million expansion projeci al Elphinstone  school Secondary has been  delayed.  "We're nol sure what's happening," secretary-treasurer Tim  Anderson told school trustees  Tuesday (Feb. 8).  Anderson said the district had  formally requested funding for  building additions to be made al  the Gibsons secondary school in  November and has already tendered the projeci.  Cranberry Construction from  Powell River was announced at  Tuesday's meeting as the low  bidder in the project, tendering  it al $2.17 million.  1  _ _ Coast News, February 14, 1994  news  SCRD ready to heap on dump fees  "  i  ill  by Ian Cobb  Sunshine Coast residents will be facing a  fee when they take loads of garbage to the  Sechelt Landfill in the near future.  The Sunshine Coast Regional District on  Feb. 10 okayed plans to begin implementing  fee structures for a variety of solid wastes,  said SCRD solid waste coordinator Cathy  Kenny.  "We will be including charges for controlled wastes," Kenny said, explaining users  will have their vehicles^ weighed going in  and then on the way out and charged accordingly.  "No implementation date for the new  rates has been set yet. Prior to that there will  be a considerable amount of warning and  advertising," she said.  The developmeni of charges for dumping  solid wastes, except ordinary "kitchen"  wastes, is to help cover the costs of running  the dump, which include wages for one full-  and one part-time employee and for a contractor hired to maintain the site. The fees  also will help pay for the shipping of recyclable goods from Ihe dump.  Kenny said "a ballpark figure" for the  cost of running the dump lasl year was about  $300,000.  "We're trying to move toward a user-pay  basis for the landfill," she said.  An example of the charges residents using  the Sechelt dump can expect are $25 a Ion  for "controlled wastes" such as old furniture,  cardboard, scrap metal and "odds and sods  that are sometimes damaged and not  repairable," Kenny said.  Users of Ihe Pender Harbour landfill will  not face user fees but residents should think  twice about taking their loads from Sechelt  up to Pender because if the landfill attendant  doesn't recognize you as a local, you will be  checked, Kenny noted.  With the eventual arrival of user fees is  the fear thai some residents will dump their  trash in the woods.  "Certainly, lhat fear has been expressed,"  Kenny said.  "The implemenlalion of these fees will  help everyone and we're hoping people will  be patient and not resort to illegal dumping."  II:  5��  Us  ���  Plea made for new  Coast skating rink  by Don Anderson  The newly-formed Sunshine  Coast Recreation Complex Society won't be getting the support  of minor hockey in its quest to  build an aquatic centre.  Walter Tripp, president of the  Sunshine Coast Minor Hockey  Association, has criticized the  society's plans lo raise awareness  and funds for the construction of  a multi-million dollar aquatic and  youth centre.  "It won't fly. If you were a  resident of Gibsons, would you  vote for something thai contained  a $3-$4 million swimming pool  in Sechelt when you've already  got one in Gibsons that hasn't  been funded by one dollar of  Sechelt money?" he said.  Tripp has been an outspoken  proponent of the development of  a second ice surface in Sechelt,  which he believes should be  given the highest priority on the  Coasl at this time.  The Recreation Complex  Society would rather see public  and private money directed  toward the phased development  of a recreational facility that  would initially feature an aquatic  and youth centre.  lMliyieBH#ji| trfgfldfl'fBr  "Setf*!lt'��n<fott,Bfcnd totfs'biffltfd  Ihe hospital near Ted Dixon  Paik: The hind would have lo be  leased from the band.  Ann Hayward, president of  Ihe society, said the initiative follows "in line" wilh Ihe recommendation of the Professional  Environmental and Recreational  Consultants (PERC) report presented in 1991. It will also meet  the needs of more residents on  the Coast, particularly children  and seniors, Hayward said.  "Taking in consideration that  a large chunk of the population is  seniors, what kind of facility  would they get Ihe most use out  of? It would be an aquatic facility."  Hayward said the facility  would eventually feature other  recreational amenities, including  an ice arena, but not until it was  financially viable.  "It is not realistic to build it  all at once because it will be too  expensive for taxpayers," she  said. Tripp would like lo see the  developmeni of a facility that is  similar to what the Resort  Municipality of Whistler has  buill off Highway 99.  That particular facility consists of a $5.5 million ice arena  completed in 1992 and a $5.2  million aquatic complex slated to  open in May.  "What minor hockey's idea is  if we are going to do something,  let's compliment what we have  already, let's fix the facility  which we've already got, put the  second sheet of ice in, and put a  Ttrenrattdlng'aremRni tharwill  hold ice in il for at least the  wholejWr!"'

WHSEA grills officials about  their end of the road to nowhere  by Ian Cobb  They want il done ��� now.  Citing the population growth  of Ihe Sunshine Coast and the  soon-to-be operational Hillside  Marine Terminal in Port Mellon,  members of Ihe Wesl Howe  Sound Electors' Association  (WHSEA) pressed BC Ferries  Corporation and Ministry of  Highways and Transportation  officials as to when Phase Two of  the Gibsons by-pass projeci will  be completed.  Phase Two of the project consists of the expansion of the ferry  terminal and completion of the  intersection at Langdale.  WHSEA vice-president Sam  Aikens said the "rapid population  growth and Ihe new Hillside  dock" are some of the main reasons WHSEA members want the  government to quit stalling and  get on with the projeci, often  called "Ihe road lo nowhere."  David Carroll, an engineer in  the Ferries Corporalion's terminal construction group and ministry engineers David Jea and  Andy Braacx lold the 33 people  crammed into the Langdale Elementary School classroom Feb. 9  that if everything goes according  to plan and money is made available by the provincial government in its April I budget, construction on the $700,000 terminal expansion and $S.2-million  by-pass will begin around the end  of May.  The by-pass work scheduled  in Phase Two is only the completion of the intersection and the  $3.2-million figure includes all  wotk on the road that will eventually re-connect with Highway  101 at either Henry or Payne  Road."lf we get the funding we'll  go lo work," Carroll said.  And if woik begins at the end  of May, it should be completed in  "about nine monlhs."  To help ensure the project  moves along more quickly, the  government representatives said  they are combining their efforts.  "We're hoping to combine our  projects and go it under one lender," Carroll said. "We're actually working quite closely togeth-  The design we're  proposing win  handle way  more traffic'  -DtitidCamll  Plans for the terminal expansion have changed "quite drastically," the group was told, since  the original plans were drawn in  1992.  David Jea, traffic engineer for  Ihe ministry, said Ihe terminal's  traffic capacity will increase by  33 per cent and "the unloading of  traffic will move more expeditiously."  Three lanes will accommodate  traffic moving off the ferry,  instead of ihe two currently causing a slow-down in movement as  traffic disembarking from the  ferry on the Langdale side has to  jocky into one of the two Sechelt-  Gibsons-bound lanes.  However, as a result of the  new intersection design, WHSEA  members discovered they're  going to have to leave for the  ferry terminal a "few minutes  earlier" because the traffic flow  leaving the terminal will stream  straight out, via two lanes, up the  by-pass. This means a longer  wait al the lights to turn left into  the terminal.  Some other changes due at Ihe  terminal, the WHSEA members  were told, is a relocation of the  foot-passenger and short-stay  traffic, an increase in terminal  capacity to 900-plus vehicles, a  green strip on the Hopkins side of  the terminal and two entry  booths.  The entry booths garnered a  few murmurs and questions from  the crowd. "He used the word loll  booth; would you explain that,  please?" one man asked after  Carroll mentioned the plans for  Ihree toll-booths had been narrowed down lo two.  Carroll smiled and replied,  "Uh, information booths."  The issue of an overpass carrying traffic over the Port Mellon  Highway, which will be re-rouled  and altered thanks to the expanded terminal, was quickly dismissed."There's no plan for a  future overpass because of the  costs," Jea said.  "That would be about a $2.5-  million proposition," Bracks said,  and because it's already unclear  that Phase Two will proceed  immediately because of uncertain  financing assurances, an additional expense like that is unreal  thinking.  "The design we're proposing  will handle way more traffic."  In addition, the engineers said  the gradient required to create a  proper overpass cannot be  achieved with the space available  at the terminal.  One overpass that is planned  at the terminal is at berth two,  currently used as the back-up  berth for the Queen of Cowichan  when berth one is out of order.  Berth two will eventually  become the regular on- and offloading berth, wilh an upper deck  being attached to the one lhat is  already there, Carroll said.  "It's a separate project bul it is  a priority," he said.  advertising  deadline  February 28  H  M  a  I      N  For explorers of the Sunshine Coast  ��� 1994 edition*  (Formerly Soundings Magazine)  Call or fax the Glassford Press offices  211 to reserve space or for rates:  Gibsons: 886-2622, FAX: 886-7725  cu*}��� Seche|t. 885-3030, FAX: 885-3954  s%*m  !. ktK iv sLe&jv^i ���  &d.  ____,  ^-^______^_____________,  ������-,--t-J"-���'���-���- Coast News, February 14, 1994  opinion  Moving mulish  government with  fence-post  reasoning  This is a tale with a moral to it.  A pedestrian in ancient times encountered a man who  was trying to get his stubborn mule to move. He pulled, he  pushed, he exhorted, he snorted, all to no avail.  When it became clear that the owner simply was not  going to be able to get his mule to move, the pedestrian  approached and offered to do what the owner had nol been  able to do ��� get the mule in motion.  "But you watched and you saw that I could not move il,"  the mule owner said. "How do you propose to get my mule  moving?"  "I will talk to it, reason with it ��� and when I am finished, it will move when I speak to it," the passerby  replied.  "And what would you wish in return for this service? I  am not a rich man."  "I ask for nothing in return."  The price being right, the mule owner agreed to let the  stranger attempt to budge the animal.  The stranger circled the animal briefly, then went lo a  shallow ditch at the side of the road and picked up a short  length of broken fence post.  Circling once more around the animal, and then stopping  at its head, the stranger quickly, deftly, hefted the fence-  post length high above his head and brought it crashing  down on the forehead of the recalcitrant mule.  Before the stunned owner could consider what had transpired, the stranger turned his back on the mule and said  "Come," and the mule meekly followed.  The owner of the animal, meanwhile, had grown livid  with anger at what the stranger had done, even though the  animal was now moving in response to a spoken command.  "I thought you said you would reason with my mule to  get him to move!" he roared at the stranger.  "I did reason with him and he is now willing to move."  "But you didn't reason with the animal; you smashed it  on the forehead with that post."  "Oh, that," the stranger shrugged. "First you have to get  its attention."  That mule is a little like the provincial government and  the stranger with the fence post w-nrthe' position ol the  fcecheh Ritiian BanU" ���  ' Twenty years ago, the band agreed to'allow tt��;g6Vfefn-  ment to put a utility corridor across its land, on the condition that it receive an equivalent piece of property in  exchange.  During that time, it has been in the position of the owner  of the mule. No matter how much the band requested,  cajoled, pushed or pulled, the provincial government made  no movement.  It wasn't until the Sechelts adopted the role of the  stranger with the fence post that the government took  notice of what was happening here.  Does the band want to cut off the water? No, but before  it can reason with the government, it, like the passerby, has  to get the mule's attention ��� and the water line is their  fence post.  We hope the mule moves after this invitation to reason.

VIOLET WINEGARDEN  Gibsons  Creek cat caught  in leg-hold trap  We've all seen TV programs,  read magazines and newspaper  articles about leg-hold traps.  We've all got our own opinions  about them but I venture to say,  most of us, whether animal  lovers or not, find these devices  a cruel and inhumane way to  trap any type of animal.  Our cat disappeared. He had  been missing for 10 days; we  assumed the worst, that he had  been hit by a car.  You can imagine our horror  when our cat arrived home with  one of these hideous devices on  his front paw.  As I sit and write this letter, I  can see the trail in the snow  where he dragged the two-foot  chain that was attached to the  trap as he struggled to get to the  house.  The four-inch jaw of the trap  has all but severed his front leg.  It was all we could do to open  the trap to release what was left  of his paw. He's lost more than  tialf liis'bbdy weight, so'we  know he's been dragging around  this disgusting piece of metal for  many days.  At least trappers secure their  traps and check them regularly,  thus putting the trapped animal  out of its misery. But in this  case, the trap was nol secured,  Ihe animal, my pet, was subjected to the pain and suffering of a  severed leg, thai was trapped in  a pound of metal while dragging  a two-foot chain behind, that  could hang up on anything it  He was left to bleed lo death,  starve, unable to fend for himself, tortured. This is the most  vile act of cruelty to any animal.  What kind of despicable person could intentionally torture a  small animal?

Residents of Roberts Creek,  Joe Road area, until we know  who is doing this, don't let your  cats, dogs or children venture  too far. It seems we have someone near us that is definitely not  very neighbourly.  KEN SKYTTE and  CHERYL RE1MER  Roberts Creek  Mother's income  for Year of Family?  Seeing as I'm the type of person who likes to be in step with  the times, I'd like to present yet  one more proposal for abolishing 'the welfare system"��� pr'at'  least part of it.    ''" , ..  Wilh so many single mothers  subjected to the humiliation of  living off the public purse, why  not just recognize the job  they're already doing and pay  them for looking after their own  children?  The concept of a mother's  income has been around for a  long time; this being the International Year of the Family, il  would be fitting if mothers were  finally to receive financial support for ihis most vital of jobs.  Perhaps a mother's income  would also remedy Canada's  falling birthrate which is becoming a genuine concern.  LAURELSUKKAW  Gibsons  Pedant's preamble to predictable post-budget blues  Ah, it's budget time again in Canada and all the  financial birds are singing their old familiar refrains.  The finance minister ��� it's Paul Martin this season, but they begin to seem interchangeable ��� is  vowing to get on top of the federal deficit. He's  telling Canadians to tighten their belts and be ready  for lax increases and he's determined to cut government spending.  You there, at the back of the class, any more  smart aleck remarks about d��ja vu and you will nol  be allowed to take further part in this lesson.  Meanwhile the auditor general has presented his  annual list of horror stories about government waste  and insane spending.  Please, Hilda, dear, remember lo cover your  mouth when you yawn.  I particularly like the passage about the savings  on defence. Does anyone here remember anything al  ail aboul the "peace dividend?" I thought not, but  perhaps it's just as well because it's already disappeared before anyone actually saw it.  Well, it was when thai nasty cold war was over  and suddenly we weren't going to have lo spend all  our money on military things. The last defence minister, let his name be mercifully forgotten along with  the peace dividend, vowed to cut military spending  without impairing the ability of fighting Canadians  to do whatever it is they are supposed to do. It was a  lovely story.  But here comes that nasty auditor general again  and whal does he tell us? The ability of Canadian  armed forces to do things has been impaired bul the  musings  numbers of civilian bureaucrats serving, if that's the  word, in Ihe defense department has increased. It  seems despite the sacrifices made by the soldiers the  cuts in spending have not wholly materialized.  Yes, I know, junior, nobody is really surprised.  You remember other lessons about the uncontrolled  growth of bureaucracy, do you? So do I, my boy, so  doi.  Hilda, dear, please don't go to sleep on your  desk. I know you've heard all this before. Yes, it's  quite likely that you'll hear it again next year too,  but do sit up. Good posture makes you seem so alert.  I'm afraid, class, we have to keep talking about  the uncontrolled growth of bureaucracy if we are  going to understand our financial lessons at all.  There's a big clock somewhere that marks up the  growth in the national deficit, I believe the clock is  in Vancouver...  Sammy wants to know: "What's the national  deficit?" Can anyone help him? Hilda?  No dear, I don't Ihink it's quite like spending all  john burnside  your allowance on Friday nighl and going all week  without anything. It would be simpler if it were.  Junior?  That's right, Junior, it's like spending all your  allowance on Friday night and still spending borrowed money all week while wailing for the next  batch.  Sammy wants lo know what happens next  That's right, Junior, you just have lo borrow  some more.  I know, Hilda, you wouldn't be allowed to do  that. Your parents would stop you.  Why doesn't someone stop Ihe government borrowing and spending all lhat money il doesn't have?  Good question.  The politicians keep getting elected to fix things  up but then they go to Ottawa or to Victoria or to the  regional board office or to the municipal hall or to  the school board office and somehow a little while  after they get there, they are persuaded by the public  servants waiting for them that everybody needs a  raise and more people have to be hired.  Yes, Hilda, you're quite right. They are all  behaving like spoiled brats. Sometimes, like last  October, the public wakes up for a while and gives  the rascals a good spanking then goes back to sleep  again. Then the nexl bunch of rascals starts in all  over again.  They talk about making cuts in spending and  they tell us they'll have to raise taxes till the spending cuts take effect The taxes always get raised bul  somehow the spending cuts never do seem lo take  effect  Any of you children ever read any science fiction  stories? You do, good. Here's a quote from a science fiction story by a man from Tacoma called  Frank Herbert. The book is called God Emperor of  Dune, Ihe fourth of the Dune stories. It's aboul  administrators:  "A bad administrator is more concerned wilh  reports than wilh decisions. He wants the hard  record which he can display as an excuse for his  errors."   ���  Yes, Junior? Why do they gel away with il?  Because the people we elect don't know business  from beei' knees, can't differentiate between personnel and popcorn.  You're right, Sammy. It doesn't say much for the  people who elect them either.  No, Hilda, I will nol read you the science fiction  story. This government stuff is important. You're  the people who will get stuck with the debt, remember.

This bit of nonsense verse  comes to us as many may  remember from Edward Lear,  the Owl and the Pussycat man;  but it has seemed to me, since I  first visited here some 10 years  ago, to have something of the  Sunshine Coast aboul it. Just an  impression, some kind of a distant gong. Lear himself could  never have been here.  He was a Victorian type  whose father, like Charles Dickens' father, was in and out of  debtor's prison in London which  in those days could have been  no fun at all for anyone concerned. Somehow or other he  took to sketching and somehow  or other he got a commission tp  sketch and painl a world-class  collection of parrots.  It is altogether likely that this  experience, given his background, could have put some  dint in his psyche. I have seen  only a few prints of these parrots bul people who have seen  the collection have written that,  while the paintings of the parrots slay ornithologically quite  correct, they begin to take on  individual characteristics, not  Disney of course, quite subtly  In a nutshell  ��� a cock to the head, a gleam  in the eye, a leer to the beak.  Small things but all filtering in a  basically comic view of parrot-  dom.  There seems little question  though that this passage with the  parrots influenced his later  approach to society and life as a  whole. The Nonsense Verses are  just lhat, nonsense; but they  make images that stay with us,  and they bring a kind of music  to the language, and that has to  be all to the good; and if poetry  is, as in the old definition  'remembered speech,' they do  that too.  In fact many of the old tags  that we do remember from big  important poems have something faintly comic about Ihem  as: "The stag at eve had drunk  his fill where danced Ihe moon  o'er Monan's rill"; or, "A bowshot from her bower eaves he  rode between the barley  sheaves"; or, "Haply some  hoary headed swain may say,  Oft have we seen him at the  break of day..."  I don't know about you bul I  don't really remember much, if  anything, of the rest of these  stuart nutter  great works. Lear manages this  kind of basically lyric thing with  the flimsiest materials.  It is of course best to read il  early. If for example, you are  reading Ihe Owl and the Pussycat at a time when you are just  beginning lo read in the first  place lines like "Dear Pig are  you willing to sell for one  shilling your ring? Said the  piggy I will. So they took il  away ad were married next day  by the turkey who lived on the  hill, the hill, the turkey who  lived on the hill..." will stay  wilh you forever.  There may still be some  around who will say that cluttering kids' minds up from the  word go with a lot of useless  nonsense is bad, and that there  are other lessons that can be  learned while the child is learning to read.  We had, back in the early  '20s, a number of books of this  sort around when I was learning  to read. One was a German book  called Struwellpeter, which I  notice is still selling here. It is  elaborately and graphically  illustrated and is a collection of  moral tales: little Tommy head-  in-air, little Johnny suck-a-  thumb, etc. Little Tommy falls  into the canal and is realistically  eaten up by flashes, and little  Johnny has his thumbs cut off  by the long-tailed scissor-man  and stands there with the stumps  bleeding all over the parquet  floor.  We Lear readers across the  channel just found this peculiar  and my bet would be that almost  any three-year-old would be  able to spot an adult moral however disguised. What we can  perhaps pass them though,  maybe at this time as well as  any other, is a basic enjoyment  of the language.  And Lear anyway is not all  .- tiimple nonsense. "Oh my aged  .' uncle Arley, sitting on a heap of  barley, on his nose there was a  cricket, in his hat a railway ticket, at his back there was a thicket, but his shoes were far too  tight." This is a perfectly okay  picture of a travelling salesman  of the time.  And at the end of the Yongy-  Bongy Bo he finds lhat there is  a lady Jingly Jones living on the  other side of the island and goes  lo court: "Lady Jingly, Lady  Jingly I am tired of living  singly, will you come and be my  wife said Ihe Yongy-Bongy Bo.  You can have my chairs and  candle and my jug without a  handle. Quite serene will be my  life if you'll come and be my.  wife, said the Yongy-Bongy Bo,  said the Yongy-Bongy Bo..."  A little something more than  jusl nonsense there perhaps.  letter*  'McDonaldJzation'  opposed  Will McDonald's come to  town? That seems to be the question everybody's talking about.  My question is whether or not the  people of the Sunshine Coast  realize what a radical step is  involved in allowing the establishment of a McDonald's Iran1  chise ip our little community. Do  folks stop and consider the implications of such an enterprise?  The owners of existing eateries have raised their objections to  Ihe coming of the mighty McD's  and their worries are not  unfounded: McDonald's will  unquestionably take a big bite out  of the profits of any restaurant  lhat doesn't require a reservation  , and maybe even some that do.  No doubt, they consider the  American hamburger juggernaut  lo be unfair competition, what  wilh Iheir slick TV advertising  and endless promotional gimmickry. What locally owned  business could afford Ihis?  Bul is this reason enough to  pre-empt the opening of an internationally known chain restaurant? We enter dangerous territory when we allow the old-guard  business community to decide  which enterprises should be permitted lo set up shop and which  should nol. They, after all, have a  vested interest in protecting their  profit margin, an agenda that has  little to do with the welfare of the  community we live in.  We, as citizens, also have a  vested interest in preventing the  entrance of McDonald's inlo our  fair town but our agenda is lo  protect the lifestyle that is the  envy of those unfortunate souls  living in Vancouver.  McDonald's is the flagship of  the rationalization process of  society, whal sociologists have  termed "McDonuldizalion." The  seed was planted in the 1800s  when governments instituted  bureaucracies lo process paper, ll  sprouted when Henry Ford  invented the assembly line lo process cars and it came to full flower when McDonald's began lo  process hamburgers. Make no  mistake though, McDonald's bottom line is to process people.  They want you in, and quickly  out of, their restaurant, and the  more efficiently Ihey do this, the  more money they make. Forget  about the warm, fuzzy TV ads  portraying "just plain folks"  experiencing tender moments in  the cramped, garish confines of a  booth in McDonald's, and. think  for a momtnt about the1 systematic dehumaniltation of tlie; people  working in these places.  McDonald's is an institution  that is run with the discipline and  precision of a military exercise,  only without quite as much left lo  chance. The portion sizes are  measured to three decimal places,  employees are forced to follow  stringent regulations governing  what to say and how to act with  customers and job descriptions  are reduced to this most simplistic  levels possible to eliminate the  incidence of creativity: One "Big  Mac" is indistinguishable from  anpther whether you buy it in  Dallas! Toronto or Beijing. And  &ut will be Iii Sechelt if,jfcjppDj-  ald's sets lip shop here.  The real question then is,  "Why do we live on the Sunshine  Coasl?"

Joel Johnstone  photo  Wood-burning called major air problem  by Darah Hansen  The rural air of the Sunshine  Coast may look clean, but residents and visitors alike might be  surprised at just what their lungs  are taking in.  According to Dr. Paul Martiquet, chief medical health officer  of the Coast Garibaldi Heallh  Unit, there are a number of factors contributing to a general  decrease in the quality of air on  the Coast and Ihe rest of BC ���  not all of them within our realm  of control,  On the Sunshine Coast, Ihe  primary concern over air qualily  is from smoke from woodstoves  and fireplaces, said Martiquet.

In Ihe elderly,  breathing in such  smoke   can  put  them "over the edge,  said.  Smokers are also at high risk  because Ihey are already predisposed to diseases such as lung  cancer and emphysema, he  added.  Martiquet said Ihe problem is  not such that "we have to deal  Martiquet said  Coast air is also  effected by  industry in the  mid-Western  United States  ' Martiquet  wilh it today...but it is a concern."  Ensuring an airtight woodslove and using alternate methods to open burning are "obviously desirable,"  ~~-~~    he said.  The effects of  air pollution from  the Coast's several  pulp mills are not  completely known  but experts within  the provincial  Ministry of Environment say what  is currently being  monitored is not al  a level lo pose a threat to those  living nearby.  Air quality from pulp mill  emission are monitored by  equipment both at the mills and  al sites further away.  On the Coast, ambient air  monitors are located in Langdale, Gibsons town hall and fire  station and al the Howe Sound  YMCA camp.  Twenty-four-hour computer  monitoring reads for Total  Reduced Sulphur (TRS), associated with a sour smell emanating  .from pulp mills; sulphur dioxide,  a cause of acid rain; and inhal-  able particulates.  Other possible air emissions  resulting from pulp mill productions such as toxic dioxins and  furans from Ihe chlorine-bleaching process are not monitored in  Canada.  And while ministry officials  admit there is concern with such  emissions, "basically the problem is lack of staff and money,"  said Graham Veale, air resources  officer with Environment.  Martiquet said Coast air is  also affected by industry in the  mid-Western United Stales and  by the constant burning of fossil  fuels continent-wide, primarily  caused by driving cars.  Cigarette tax cut downplayed  TKe federal government's  tax cut on cigarettes won't  increase the number of smokers,  says a local physician.  "No one can deny that  cigarette smoking is bad for  you," said Dr. Terry Amiel.  "Bul I think Ihe answer is to  educate people nol to smoke...I  think the tax situation on  cigarettes is not Ihe way to go, it  helped create smuggling."  Amiel's comments follow  Ihe federal government's decision to approve a $5 federal tax  cut on a carton of cigarettes in  an effort to combat smuggling  in Quebec. According to federal  estimates, three out of four  cigarettes are contraband in that  province.  Ottawa has also urged  provinces to lower their tax take  on smokes, but that recommendation has fueled anger and  upheaval among many  provinces. One of Ihe fears asso  ciated with Ihe lax cut is thaUt  will encourage further smuggling to provinces outside Quebec.  'No one can deny  that cigarette  smoking is  bad/oryou'  -Terry Amiel  Numerous physicians across  the country have also expressed  concern that the lax cut will  encourage more young people to  light up who previously were  not likely able lo afford the cost  of smokes.  That fear and perception js  unlikely lo be realized and  blame should not be put on Quebec for attempting to deal wil  its smuggling problem  d with  , says  .suiojaaood  Amiel, who has jijmse)f,,been a  smoke for many years.  "I think the real solution is  education of the youi;, don't let  anyone start."  Amiel said Ihe perception  that fewer people than ever are  smoking today may be deceiving because of Ihe amount of  smuggling that currently goes  on across Ihe country. If Ihe  government is looking lo slop  smuggling and lo avoid encouraging smoking, it should consider directing more lax dollars  toward the establishment of  "stop smoking clinics" and anti-  smoking campaigns.  In BC, Ihe tax cut lowered  Ihe average price of a carton to  about $43, compared lo $23 in  Quebec and $41 in Ontario.  In Sechelt and Gibsons, an  informal survey of four cigarette  vendors indicated lhat cartons,  were being sold for between  $42.30 and $48.  Government health care plan  not working, says MLA Wilson  MLA attacks NDP health  care policy  The provincial government  needs a check-up.  Haunted by fears of less  money available lo health care  facilities following the April I  provincial budget, St. Mary's  Hospital is preparing to lake on  a $300,000 deficit in 1994/93.  Because of the enormity of  Ihe deficit, the Sechelt-based  facility will have to eliminate  jobs through attrition and once  enough jobs are eliminated ���  with an estimated six to nine  possibly getting axed next year  ��� service cuts will follow, said  hospital administrator Ted  Wright.  With this in mind, the  province has lo gel its priorities  straight, said Sunshine Coasl  MLA Gordon Wilson.  "The provincial heallh care  system just isn't working," Wilson told Ihe Coast News Feb.  10.  "This government is spending way too much money on  administration and nol enough  on heallh care."  The Victoria-based MLA  said he raised his concerns with  the Ministry of Health Feb. 9  and "I ihink the ministry was  sympathetic."  With Ihe population of Ihe  Sunshine Coasl continuing to  rise al a greater level than most  other areas in Ihe province, we  can't afford to lose services at  our local hospital, Wilson said.  In addition, Ihe government's  drive lo try and keep more people at home rather lhan in hospital beds isn't working, Wilson  said.  "At home is more like, 'Send  them home."  v  Visit Beaver Lumber's Kitchen Design Centre  LOCATED ON 2ND FLOOR   �� 1 >^^   ^ ^ ^   ^Jrl  LOCATED ON 2ND FLOOR  Professional Computerized  Design/Installation  Complete Range of solid surface and  laminate counter tops available.  ifn/ffa/  /4M5RK  CABINETRY  CALL TODAY!  985-3000  FAX YOUR PLANS TODAY!!

It usually has been for  but not when it's spiced with ��e  anecdotes of someone w|  helped it happen.  Like Bill White of Sechi  former constable and crewm  on Ihe St. Roch. That was ti  RCMP auxiliary cruiser suppl  ing police posts in the short  tic summer and becoming  headquarters for dog sled patrol  in Ihe 10-month winter. Patrol  checked on the general welfan  of the Inuit and the few whites ii  the region.  Bill White's vivid account ol  sailing on the St. Roch lo thi  Arctic in 1930 with the 'hon  marines' is thoroughly recordei  in volume seven of the Raincoast  Chronicles, available in our'  bookstores.  r. ns:x)$$ gj| Bn| on ������ re^,,,.  ing his experiences in' the four  1 winters he spent in the Coronation Gulf region. Anecdotes  flowed easily from a memory  still keen in his 89th year. Patrols  by dog learn, tales of Inuit  medicine men or shamans, how  to live in the Arctic are just a few  of his memories of those years.  Bill White spent four consecutive years, 1930-1934, in the  Coronation Gulf area, Ihe longest  period of time the St. Roch ever  remained in the Arctic before  reluming lo home port in Vancouver.  "There was nothing lo do  cooped up in the St. Roch when  she was icebound but play crib,  so I managed to gel a transfer lo  the Cambridge Bay post.  "One of my first jobs on winter patrol was taking Ihe census  in 1930-31. We had to find all  the seal camps around Queen  Maud Sea (Gulf). The Inuit  didn't have English names then.  It was later lhat some dope in  Ottawa figures that Ihe Inuit  should have Anglo names. Inuit  names suit the people much better.  "Sometimes we'd lake the  komilik or sleo across the sea ice  lo Coppermine to pick up mail  that had come that far by plana.  That could be 300 miles one year  and 450 another depending on  Ihe stale of Ihe ice."  What was your longest patrol,  Bill?  "I did 1,200 miles altogether  on one patrol lo bring in an Inuit  suspected of murder. He gave no  trouble. He gol five years of  what nowadays we'd call 'community work' in Tukloyuktuk.  Took his wife with him, ate regularly, had no worries about poor  hunting. He never had it so good.  Well that was our white man's  law."  Constable White often travelled with Mahik, an Inuit who  was an employee of the RCMP.  When it came time to make  camp for Ihe night Mahik would  build Ihe snowhouse while Bill  fed the dogs their chunks of f:r,h  and biunner, tied them separately  from each other, and put Ihe  leather harness oul of Iheir reach.  "They would have eaten that."  He once saw Mahik have a  snowhouse ready in 35 minutes.  "I soon learned lo build one  but never thai fast."  More on Bill White's anecdotes next week.

And Langdale resident Mike  Poppel still likes the ferry.  It's not off the wall to think  that one might be a bit tired of  the routine of commuting from  Ihe Sunshine Coast to Horseshoe  Bay���Vancouver after nearly 25  years but Poppel still enjoys it.  "It's a lifestyle. It's very  pleasant and Ihere is no fighting  traffic," Poppel said three days  after his 65th birthday ��� a birthday that was celebrated via a surprise parly thrown by wife Eileen  and friends at the Gibsons Yachl  Club.  The reason Poppel isn't tired  of commuting to his office in the  cily, where he's president of the  State Mortgage Corporation, is  that he has a powerful drive and  determination.  It's a weight-lifter's drive,  consisting of focus, intensity,  technique and strength.  Nol surprisingly, he works out  at Ihe YMCA gym in Vancouver  every day and has been since  1944. Again, a devotion to routine.  When Poppel first started lifting weights, Arnold Schwarzenegger was flittering aboul Ihe  ether in search of a gleam in  someone's eye ��� and when Pop-  pel won the first ever Mr. BC  competition in 1946, Arnold was  gumming the daylights out of his  thumb and soiling his lederhosen.  "I went to the Y because I  wanted to get strong. I was more  of a gymnast al the time but it  worked out really well," Poppel  said. And that's when he made  his transition into weight-lifting  and body-building.  It was quite a transition. In  1946, at the age of 16, he was  named Mr. BC and followed lhal  with a Pacific Northwest weight-  lifting title.  Of course, body building in  the late '40s was much different'  lhat it is in 1993. Back then,  body-builders weren't bulked up  into rippling sacks of skin that  look as though they might burst  if Ihe layer of shiny oil covering  them were cleaned away, as they  do loday. A major reason for  such pumped up bodies today is  the prevalence of steroids.  "We never had those things in  those days," Poppel said.  Body building in the late '40s  was all a result of weight-lifting  ���the clean and jerk, the snatch  and the press.  Along with the enjoyment of  the physical aspect of the sport,  working out in the YMCA gym  along with one-time weight lifting champ Doug Hepburn also  meant keeping out of trouble.  "If we were working out, it  kept us off the streets," Poppel  said. With a grin, Poppel also  admits "there was nothing else to  do. There was no TV or anything  in those days."  Body-building titles or not,  Poppel still had to make a living,  so he look a job as a life guard,  worked as a director and instructor at Boys' Clubs of Canada and  also worked as a provincial  recreation instructor before settling into the financing and mortgage business.  With that, Mike and Eileen  Above, Michael Poppel In 116 at age 16. Below, Poppel  celebrating his 65th birthday at tfe Gibsons Yacht Club.  Joel Johnstone photo  derful. We have the whole ocean  as our backyard."  As for turning 65, the relentless advance of age doesn't mean  anything to him, Poppel said.  "People keep asking me  where's my gold card," he  laughed.  "The only gold card I've ever  heard of before (turning 65 and  becoming eligible for sjaiors',  discounts if you'Ve fptjfpr gold  " card) was a MasteSmrflrVisa." '  Along with working out, Pop-  pel uses humour to keep age at  bay. "The only thing thai has  kept me going is immaturily. I  guess I'll have to get serious and  start making a living. I don't  have many talents and I enjoy  working. I don't think when you  turn 65, you have to retire. If you  enjoy work it keeps you healthy  and keeps you younger."  The relaxing ride on the ferry,  drinking coffee, reading Ihe  paper and chatting wilh other  commuters is another reason  Poppel manages to retain a  youthful zest for life.  And then, of course, there's  the varying and picturesque landscape thai greets him every day.  "It's nice...you gel Ihose  mountains covered in snow."  The "other" commuters, coming in from New Westminster,  Matsqui or Surrey, are "completely harried by the lime they  get into town and that doesn't  happen over here. The ferry is  really good because it slows  growth down somewhat," he  said, though he sees Ihe population of the Coasl ballooning lo  100,000 in the next 25 years.  He'll be 90 then and maybe,  after another 15,000 feny trips,  retired and ready lo adopt a new  routine to adhere to.  packed up and moved across tl  Sound to Iheir spacious, class  cally edged home overlookit  the Langdale Feny Terminal.

Creek Girl Guides  The Creek Guide unit has  entered into a friendly challenge  with nine other units in Ihe  Elphinstone District. The challenge is lo see who can raise Ihe  most money for the World  Friendship Fund. From all  repons the Creek Guides have a  very good slarl. They recently  held a very successful service  auction, bake sale and flea market which was organized by the  girls themselves. The community turnout was overwhelming  and il was a treat 10 see the spirit, says area commissioner Jan  Ritchie, as the girls have  worked very hard.  The baking disappeared from  the tables as gorgeous cakes  sold for up to $15. Unusual services auctioned off are varied  but included a Greek dinner,  delightful inspiring Valentine  flower cookies and a delivered  Mexican dinner.  Creek dinner  The Creek Legion entertainment coordinator Paul Tombu  announces that an all new menu  comprised of theme nights will  be available immediately from  5:30 pm to 8 pm. Mexican night  on Tuesday promises to be a  winner while Wednesday's  Chicken Cordon Bleu sounds  mouth-watering.  Thursday will be stuffed  pork chops with all Ihe trimmings. On Friday Ihe favourite  barbecue returns with steak or  lamb while on Saturday traditional roast beef and Yorkshire  pudding will be offered.  Prices vary from $7.95 to  $11.95 and include breads,  desserts and salads all made  fresh daily.  Light lunches are also served  every day except Sunday. For  those on the run, Paul suggests  fresh cinnamon bun for only 75  cents ��� a meal in itself. A wide  variety of entertainment for Friday and Salurday is planned for  the spring. For more information call the Legion direct.  Roberts Creek elementary  expects lo integrate the new  learning for living curriculum  into classroom activities very  soon. This new program is a  broad and extensive document  which attempts to provide Ihe  organizational framework to  leach whal we used to refer to  as guidance or health. Recently  the staff attended a workshop to  enable them to be more familiar  with the curriculum.  During multicultural week,  the students experienced three  live presentations from two theatre groups from Vancouver.  Metamotion and Green Thumb  Theatre presented plays that  dealt with a central theme of  learning how to gel along, how  lo accept people for what Ihey  are and avoiding the tendency to  pre-judge others due lo artificial  differences.  The students in addition plan  to become foster parents  through Plan International  Canada.  It is hoped lhat each student  will contribute one dollar to  obtain the necessary $324  required for one year's support.  The plan is to continue this  practice each year at this time  and during the year Ihe students  will correspond. It is a firsthand opportunity to communicate and learn about world cultures.  Creek Carnival  The nation of Roberts Creek  is pleased lo present the third  annual Creek Carnival on Friday, Feb. 18 and Saturday, Feb.  19.

The issue  being, should Ihey agree lo an outside group  joining them in order to have more political  clout? After three hours of sometimes  stormy dialogue, it was decided by the membership lhat copies of the bylaws and constitution be made available for everyone's  perusal at the library.  It is hoped all members will read them  before the next meeting, for it is only when  everyone is informed that a beneficial decision can be made. The library is open Fridays and Saturdays.  Gwen Abram of the Beached Bird Survey  reports a golden eagle, rare in these parts,  has taken up temporary residence at Mission  Point. Although shaped like a hawk, its  wingspan ranges from 79 lo 92 inches, has a  larger bill and eyes set into deep sockets.  They nesl in eyries consisting of large masses of sticks on a crag, a ledge or in trees.  A pair of eagles may alternate between  several nests in different years and in  Europe, these eyries are known to have been  used continually for centuries. Their natural  habitat is mountainous and rangeland from  Alaska to Mexico, Iheir source of food is  mainly rabbits and large rodents.  The Sunshine Coast continues to attract  unusual species such as the sand crane and  now the golden eagle which leads some bird  watchers to wonder if nature's balance is  changing.  A book fair will be held in the library of  Davis Bay elementary school on Feb. 28,  March 1 and 2 from 6:30 pm to 8 pm.  Everyone is cordially invited to attend. A  wise person once said, "A room without  books is as a body without a soul."  A bit more history about our dock is  gleaned from Ihe remembrances of Kathleen  Franske. In the early 1950s the dock became  an outdoor dance pavilion in the summertime with its overhead lights and ample  space. Jack Whitaker and his group provided  the music to dance by and a good lime was  had by all.  In 1968, Charlie Brookman started the  Children's Fishing Derby on the dock for all  kids 12 and under. Single-handedly he collected prizes from local merchants, persuaded Ihe ladies to bake pies for Ihe pie-eating  contest, recorded all the entries, weighed and  judged all the fish and distributed every  prize accordingly.  Charlie would fill a jar with pebbles, all  pre-counted, Ihe kids would write their estimated guess on a slip of paper and the winner would strut off with a coveted prize.  While the derby has continued through the  years, the magic that was Charlie Brookman  somehow has eluded it.

J halfmoon happenings  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  The announcement in lasl week's Coast  News about consideration being given lo Ihe  sinking of a ship off Thoimanby Island will,  in all probability, have local fishermen's  tongues wagging, ll will be interesting to hear  the reaction lo the idea of their favourite fishing area becoming another haven for the diving community. Al the presenl lime Ihis area  is only being investigated as a possible site,  but Halfmoon Bay residents would do well to  be alerted of the possibility before, rather than  after, the fad.

While on the subject of the school, there  certainly is a very active and helpful group of  parents involved in all sorts of projects. A  recent, really appreciated one was the presentation of 150 folding chairs for the new gym.  The PAC is also to be thanked for the installation of a student telephone in the foyer. The  PAC will also take care of the bills for this,  local calls only of course.  A member of the local RCMP was present  at the last PAC meeting issuing a warning to  all residents that break and entries to homes  are becoming even more prevalent, especially  during the day when the occupants are at  work. We are all learning about the need for  securely locking our homes and vehicles, a  matter which was previously unheard of in  this area. They tell us that this is progress. A  cabin was recently totally vandalized in Halfmoon Bay, a pointless exhibition of utter  destruction of both building and contents.

Andrea Wright of Madeira  Park and Francesca Ryan of  Gibsons were both recipients of  the President's secondary school  entrance scholarships sponsored  by Burnaby's Simon Fraser  University (SFU) and worth  $10,000. The Iwo women were  formally announced as winners  of Ihe scholarships in a ceremony held last week al SFU where  both are first-year students.  Speaking from the SFU campus last week, both Wright and  Ryan said they were surprised al  receiving Ihe scholarship.  The award is available to  only one student in every BC  high school showing a record of  academic excellence as well as  involvement in school and communily programs.  egmont news  To keep the money, winning  students must maintain a 3.5  grade point average out of a  possible four over the next four  years.  'It's certainly well  deserved'  -Martyn Wilson  The strict terms of the scholarship, along with the heavy  workload required in ' university, presents both women wilh  additional stress.  "I have to perform," said  Wright.  Wright and Ryan were top  students in their high schools,  Wright at Pender Harbour Secondary and Ryan at Elphinstone  Secondary.  Wright was editor of her  school yearbook, a member of  the graduation committee and a  player on both the volleyball  and basketball teams. She also  worked part-time at the local  Credit Union to earn money to  buy a car.  Principal at Pender Harbour,  Dave Witt, described Wright as  a "terrific" high school student,  the kind of person who can  accomplish anything "if she sets  her mind to il and is interested."  Ryan worked with her  school's interact club, traffic  safety team, was a member of  the school concert band and  played "lots of sports," including volleyball, track and field  and soccer.  Her former school principal,  Martyn Wilson, said he wasn't  surprised lo team Ryan had won  the award.  "It's certainly well  deserved," Wilson said.

Mr.  Herling had been a blacksmith.  Viola's parents, the Waitings,  arrived in Egmont from the BC  Interior about 1931, when Viola  was quite young. They too  cleared and planted, first beside  the Herrlings, then near Ihe  Skookumchuck where Bud and  Kay Cook now live.

FOR MORE INFORMATION  CALL ANY OF OUR TOP PRODUCERS  by Ian Cobb    ^^^^^^  The Sunshine Coast business  community could receive as  many as 14 new businesses by  the end of April.  Fourteen Coasl residents are  currently half way through a  five-month, government-initiated training program entitled  Small Business Training and  Entrepreneurship.  All 14 students selected for  ihe course are unemployed and  the cosl of the extensive course  is being covered by the Canada  Jobs Strategy, affiliated with  Canada Employment Centres.  The course is being offered  on the Coasl for Ihe first lime  and is being handled by  lladikein and Associates Certilied Training Institute, a locally  operated group contracted by  the ministry.  "They're all intending to set  up a business or some son of  self-employment," said course  instructor Lyn Hazelton, who  handles Ihe course along with  Joanne Tail and program manager Hannah Hadikein.  The nine women and five  men enrolled in Ihe course come  from all over the Coast, (including one from Earls Cove) and  each one has an idea for a business thai was considered unique  enough lo win them a spol in the  course.  "For Ihe most pari they have  14 brand new ideas for the  Coasl. They're all very unique  and exciting ideas," Hadikein  said.  "Essentially, Ihey won't be  putting anybody oul of business.  They (businesses) are needed on  Small Business and Training and Entrepreneurship student  Steve Henley works on a computer program. Ian Cobb photo  the Coast as shown by markei  surveys."  To be selected for Ihe program, they had to have put some  Ihought into their business idea  and put it into a format.  "They're coming inlo the  class with the purpose of creating a solid business plan that is  workable," Hadikein said.  Many of the students may  have tried to get their projects  off Ihe ground by either  approaching a business Finance  cenlre or through the Self  Employment Assistance Program offered by Canada  Employment but been disqualified because their plans were  weak, Hadikein said.  With Ihe training they're  receiving in the course, their  business plans are being shored  up and there's little Ihe students  won't be prepared for in the  "real world."  The course is taught in three  components. The first is computers; Ihe students receivie  detailed instruction in the basics  of computers and how to use  them in the operation of their  businesses.  In addition, they're shown  how to set up computer programs designed for their businesses.  The second component is the  practical business training side  ��� such as everything you  always wanled to know about  running a business but were  afraid to ask.  "Il's anylhing you need to  know about starting a business,"  Hadikein said.  The final component is networking, with the students  learning how to lap into as many  available sources as possible.  The 24-week-long program,  encompassing 35 hours a week  of class time at the former Leader office in Upper Gibsons, is  funded entirely by several different ministries.  Help is being made available  for day care (where needed),  travel expenses and materials.

That's how 14 Coast residents  ended up in a program designed  to help them turn Ihose ideas into  viable businesses and themselves  into business operators.

Student Steve Henley of Gibsons said he sees the course helping him gain Financing and to get  his business idea off the ground.

"Hazel (Lyn Hazelton) has  really helped as someone with  previous experience from real  life and not just from textbooks."  Sandra Wagman of Sechelt,  while anticipating the end of the  course wilh a measure of satisfaction, believes the training  she's receiving will provide her  with Ihe fuel necessary to make a  go of a proposed party coordination business.  Hampered by a bad back,  Wagman said she opted to start  her own business, catering to parties, weddings and special occasions (Hats off to Parties)  because "even though I'm a  good, hard worker, I'm one of  those people you're going to  think twice aboul hiring."  The course "has given me a  lot more ideas for my business,"  she said.  "Il's really opening my mind  to a lol of different things and a  great knowledge of computers,  too."  In addition, she has learned  how to manage money. "That's  what is going to make or break  you."  The class itself has been a 14-  person networking hotbed, with  the members discovering they  can utilize other class members'  services or products.  "I can help them out and Ihey  can help me out," Wagman said.  Henley said he hopes to get  his business up and running, "if  Ihe financing is in place, the day  after" Ihe course is over.

"My sentiments have always been you  don't have to give the woman you love a  dozen roses to say it. One (rose) does just as  good a job as a dozen," said Clare Ann  Lawrence, owner of Aan-Lynn Flowers in  Sechelt.  Lawrence and her fellow florists, totalling  roughly eight between Gibsons and Madeira  Park, are gearing up for Ihe traditional wave  of bouquet seekers that comes with Valentine's Day.  Whether it's a carnation, long-stemmed  rose or a chocolate heart, there should be  some kind of notice given to your loved one,  said Lawrence.  "Most of the women I know or women  I've talked to in the slore, all lhat anyone asks  to be is not forgotten, and that's so important."  Lawrence has dealt with countless love  seekers, and has attracted numerous unforgel-  Brlefs for business  table tales of passion and romance through  her store, some of which she rhymes off with  obvious delight.  Of Ihose memorable yarns, Lawrence  recalls the particularly romantic story involving a local woman who received a chair  carved oul of snow by her boyfriend on ihe  top of Mount Seymour, on which she sat  while he proposed to her.  "I see guys come in here who are just head  over heels wilh their ladies," she said, "and  you know they are going lo end up in marriage, you can just see it."  At other times, the romance between a  couple may resemble something out of a Norman Mailer play. For instance, Lawrence said  Ihe most interesting story she has encountered  in her 11 years as a florist involved a romance  seeker with obvious unresolved feelings about  his 12-year-old marriage.  "This guy comes in before Valentines and  he says, 'I want lo buy 11 red roses and one  yellow. Don't put a ribbon around the box, I'll  be in around four o' clock to pick il up.'"  explained Lawrence.  "We all thought there was a diamond ring,  perfume or plane tickets that he wanted to put  in the box," Lawrence said. "Anyway, he gets  a card and writes it out, opens up the box and  he says, 'Gee, these roses are really nice. Too  bad they aren 't going to be used.'  "I got this really funny feeling that something nice is not going to happen with these  roses, and then he broke Ihe heads of the roses  except for the yellow one. I said, 'What are  you doing?' And he goes, 'I've been married  to this women for 12 years and we've had one  good year.'  "And on that note, that's exactly what he  said: 'Here's to 12 years of marriage, 11 terrible years and the one good year that we had.'"  If you are planning to purchase flowers on  Valentine's Day, expect to pay through the  nose, not the heart.  An informal survey of florists on the Coast  indicates that a dozen long-stemmed red roses  will set romance seekers back $60-$90,  excluding delivery, in most cases.

Wilbert Fair  SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC WORKS  The acclaimed Shostakovich String Quartet performed at the Pender Harbour Music Society Wednesday evening. Roxanne Gregory photo  Russian quartet strikes chord in Pender  by Roxanne Gregory  Direct from Moscow via New  York lo downlown Madeira  Park? If Ihe roule seems a little  circuitous, the members of Ihe  Shostakovich String Quartet  appeared iml'a/cd by their rapid  transition from urban symphony  halls to communily halls on the  Sunshine Coast. This internationally renowned string quartet  enraptured almost 200 people at  the Madeira Park hall during a'  Wednesday malinee. No one was  more surprised by the out-pouring of concert goers than Ann  Barker, president of the Pender  Harbour Music Society. Barker  had a bet with Coast Recital  Society tour organizer Allan  Crane that a Wednesday matinee  would fail to bring out the  crowds.  Just before the opening, concert goers-from as far field as  Vancouver and Powell River  turned out in force. Vancouverite  Bob Hall, said he couldn't  believe the quartet would be  playing on Ihe West Coast.  "I asked my wife, where in the  world is Pender Harbour? Even  Ihe snow didn't deter us from  coming, although we did get  lost.".  Allan Crane, the founding  father of the Countryside concert  series is currently organizing the  Coast Recital Society as a vehicle  for bringing international classical performers to the Sunshine  Coast. The appearances of the  Shostakovich Quartet in Pender  Harbour and Gibsons is an initial  cultural coup in whal potentially  may be a promising new series of  performances.  The quartet opened its performance with Alexander Borodin's  Quartet No. 2 in four movements.  Violinist Andrei Shislov brought  tears to the eyes of many with his  eloquent and exquisite performance. Even the children in the  hall were held spellbound by the  quartet.  The second movement opened  with a pastoral prelude of flowing, winding, streams of sound  which grew into torrents of  impassioned strings, followed  with first and second violins teasing background cellist, Alexander  Korchagin. The finale was  intense, vibrant and electric, with  dynamic performances on viola  by Alexander Galkovsky and second violinist Sergei Pishchugin.  Galkovsky and Korchagin  captured the audience with the  opening movements of Dimitri  Shostakovich's Quartet Number  11. Intense, foreboding, performances on cello and viola alternated with dueling first and second violins. Then whimsically,  violins became cats on back-alley  fences, prancing and yowling in  the night, serenading unknown  lovers.  After a short intermission, Ihe  quartet engaged the audience  wilh a virtuoso performance of  Ravel's Siring Quartet in F  Major, allegro moderato. This  inspired performance brought the  audience to itsfeel in a lengthy  standing ovation which was followed by an encore performance  of what Andrei Shislov simply  entitled Romanian Folk Dances.  Visions of gypsy campfires,  and Carpathian mountains  danced their way out of violent,  rousing, boisterous strings, and  passioned performances. The  Shostakovich Quartet may have  been out of its urban performing  element, but the music was world  class.  Romancing the region with words  by Don Anderson  Romance comes in many forms on the Sunshine  Coast. One of the most popular is the slick, sultry,  and oft-maligned romance novel.  I learns of romance paperbacks chronicling the  livA and loves of the Old West settlers, Victorian  Age countesses and 20th century lawyers and self-  absorbed movie stars can be found al most any used  book slore.  Chances are, you jusl might find a novel or Iwo  of Judy Gill's al one of those stores.  Gill is a longtime-resident of the Sunshine Coast,  and renowned author of 28 published romance novels. Her entry into the field was abrupt, beginning in  1974 when she sal down to pen her first romance  story in Germany, where she was stationed wilh her  'army brat' husband, Bob.  "I read a lot of romance novels," Gill admitted  during a phone interview from her home in Halfmoon Bay last Thursday night.  "The husband of a friend was bugging his wife  and me one day saying, 'Vou read so much of lhal  stuff, why don'l you wrile one?'  "I said, 'All right I will.' And I did."'  That particular novel, entitled Name Me This  Ceiling, sold to the second publisher il was pitched  lo in 1975. The firm. Women's Weekly Library of  England, would publish Gill's second novel lhat  same year, subsequently losing the writer to another  company after an editor "arbitrarily changed heroes"  in the novel. \   *t       ',  These days, Gill appears to have less trouble with '.  impetuous editors. The Sl-year-old writer is eagerly '.  8waiS!8*6fi*caNl?f imf^51 ��ffl*<#��J*'':  Mak7l<p,~i wiQg contemporary romantic yarn-qb^ut;  the estranged relationship between a young mother'  and her ex-husband in White Rock. i<  Despite her literary success, Gill is somewhat  nervous about each new release and its perception  among the masses. Romance novels have been  "downright denigrated" by literary critics and members of Ihe public carrying Ihe belief they are pure  pulp, trash and sleazy publications.  "Eveiy time I send a book out it's like walking  down Hastings Street naked," Gill said. "It's such a  personal Ihing. It's such a part of me because it  comes out of me and every lime someone says  something harsh aboul it, I'm wounded."  Nevertheless, Gill still manages to gather up  enough determination to sit in front of her computer,  sometimes for up to IS hours a day, in the name of  romance.  Although she wouldn't attempt to define the  meaning of "romance" when asked. Gill insists that  the Sunshine Coast is one of the best places to discover il.  "I like lo think that it is a veiy romantic place. It  is a place to be alone together, a place to jusl sit and  get to know each other...if that's the definition of  'romance.'"'  Tackling the practical side of romance novels  Judy Gill, author of more than  Iwo dozen published novels, has  been slated to give the dinner  address at ihe Sea To Sky Conference of Ihe Greater Vancouver  Chapter (OVC) of Romance  Writers of America (RWA).  The conference, which will be  held at the Vancouver Renaissance Hotel, March 26-27  promises lo attract writers,  agents, editors and published  authors from all across North  America.  Gill, who was hom and raised  on Ihe Sunshine Coasl, and has  lived in Halfmoon Bay since  1979, has been wriling professionally since 1975.  "This conference is a must for  any aspiring local writer,  whether in Ihe romance genre or  nol," Gill says. "There will be  one full day of seminars aimed al  different levels of wriling expertise from beginner to multi-published. Featured will be such topics as The Business of Writing,  ForensictElemenls in Wriling  and Marketing and Self-Promotion."  Sunday morning, participants  will enjoy an open forum on  writing, how authors got  involved in the craft, setbacks  they've suffered, how Ihey got  past them, how they carry  Ihrough wilh ideas.  "Conferences such as this are  invaluable lo writers," she says.  ''Many first sales have been  made as a direct result of the  writer meeling an editor or agent  in Ihe informal surroundings of  Ihe hotel lobby or bar."  Gill herself made such a sale  lo Bantam Books of New York  at an RWA conference in Seattle  in 1988.

Writers Forge culling aspiring  scribes from around Coast  by Don Anderson  The Sunshine Coast is becoming known for more than just its  fishermen, loggers and outspoken community leaders.  For more than 10 years, Ihe  Suncoast Writers' Forge has  been helping create a new fraternity of undiscovered writers.  "The idea is to encourage people to write, to actually sit down  and produce that article or story  they have been dreaming about  for many years," said Forge president Jan Burgess.  "We don'l have any Danielle  Sleeies, bul we have small successes that have gone on to be  published." The Foige is preparing to judge some of the best  compositions by novice and  experienced Coast writers as pan  of its annual wriling contest.  The contest has produced several aspiring authors, including  Maureen Goldman, author of  Full Moon, a second place winner in Ihe 1992 contest. Goldman  recently had one of her young  adull novels published. Stories  submitted by writers range from  ghost stories and fishing adventures to romances and fantasies.  Some of the more interesting  themes that have been judged in  recent years have included Goldman's submission, a wickedly  weird yarn aboul a group of  witches that attempts to invoke  the spirit of Robert Redford.  Equally amusing, Burgess  said, was a local author's account  of his trials and tribulations in  fending off slugs that were  attacking his garden en masse.  As expected, llie author chose to  call Ihe novel Slug Wars.  Burgess, president of the club  since late 1988, also won honors  for her own work, Pebble Music.  The slory, relating a woman's  struggle lo discover life's riches,  managed lo win third prize in the  fiction category in 1988.  The contest is open to all writers, including first-time writers.  "We're trying to get people lo  bring the article oul of Ihe drawers," Burgess said. "If no one is  going lo look at them, then what  was the point. We are also trying  lo encourage people lo presenl  their manuscripts in a professional manner."  Stories entered in the contest  must be submitted by Feb. 16  and be no longer than 1,200  words. There is a $5 entry fee for  non-members of Ihe Forge, and  all entries must be typed and  double spaced. Entries will be  divided into two categories, non-  fiction and fiction. The lop three  entries in each class will be published in the Sumoaster.  A Bob Sherrln photo collage.  Playland photographic exhibit  inspired by boy in bumper car  H     ���!  ��� ,i; a<) oi  by Darah Hansen  It's somewhere between a  dreamworld and a nightmare.  Snapshots cut with black and  white precision reveal broken  legs and broken torsos of  smooth, stone flesh; a darkened  gate barricading an even darker  past; smiles and striped curtains  hiding human emotions.  These images belong to Play-  land, a photo collage by local  photographer Bob Sherrin on display now at the Sunshine Coast  Arts Centre in Sechelt.  Sherrin talks candidly aboul  himself and his work.  "When I made the work, I  didn't think it was particularly  cynical but when I look al it now,  I look at it as very sombre."  He takes a sip of coffee as the  cold and sun of a west coast  February day slips through the  front windows of the busy cafe in  which he is now sitting.  Like a collage itself, Playland  is the culmination of Shenrin's  ideas and photographic experiences dating back almost 10  years. It's a metaphor for "more  or less Ihe 20th century."  In photographic form, he has  woven together issues thai have  risen to prominence in modern  society, issues primarily of violence. Though not lacking in  beauty, the images centre primarily on form and composition,  rather than on Ihe human body.  "I'd rather talk to people than  make pictures of them," Sherrin  says. Many of Ihe images are  obviously German. They arise  from a trip he look to the country  in 1985 while researching a  novel he was involved in writing.  Many of the pictures resulting  from that experience are dark.  "Spooky," Sherrin calls them.  They are of concentration  camps, freak shows, ancient  museums.  Bul it was the memory of a  bumper car ride at the original  Playland that brought the show  together, Sherrin says.  It was a moment  where be was utterly  terrified and  frustrated'  -Bib Sherrin  The scene, he remembers, was  that of a little boy who just  couldn't figure out how to operate his little car. As he backed  into one wall or another, the boy  made an easy victim for the other  children who rammed inlo him  again and again.  The boy's parents stood outside the ring, alternately shouting  instructions and laughing as their  young son's face contorted with  a hundred emotions.  "ll was a moment where he  was utterly terrified and frustrated," Sherrin says. "I ihink that's  what triggered the whole series."  Serving as a backdrop to these  sharp images are ghost-like photographs of movement taken by  Sherrin from a car or while walking along a path, Ihe shutter of  the camera always open.  Il's a technique that he can'I  control entirely. The results are  often a surprise, "always a bit of  a treat."  The blurred scenes are both  coloured and black and white,  their frameless canvases loosely  tacked to the wall, floating and  shifting with the movement in  the room. This abstract style of  photo collage is a theme Sherrin  is continuing to work with. An  exhibition in Rome, Italy, this  past summer represents his most  recenl work with the medium.  This time, he says, the results are  more "dynamic" than in the Playland series.  Again the show centres not so  much on people but on form and  composition.  Incorporating photos from the  Canadian prairies, the Rocky  Mountains, the BC rain foresl  and Ihe beach along with those of  damaged sculptures from museums, Sherrin says it was his way  of addressing the notion of  change and human resistance to  il. "It's fairly eclectic."  Like many abstract artists,  Sherrin says he enjoys hearing  different interpretations of his  artwork.  "Everyone interprets the stories differently, and sees different  things...That always pleases me  because it confirms the unconscious has a useful purpose."  In a collage work, he says, it  is important the images work  together ��� like separate characters in a single story.  He's not looking to shock  anyone. "I would consider the  show or a piece (in it) to be a  success if one person looks at il  and is provoked to Ihink something...sonielhinf. ihey suddenly  find interesting and important to  them."

In case you've been legally  dead for lax reasons the last  month, Nancy Kerrigan was  assaulted (bashed on the leg wilh  a metal bar) in Detroit about a  monlh ago.  As it turned out, Kerrigan was  assaulted, it seems, by people  associated with American  women's champion Tonya Harding.  And in Ihe ensuing few  weeks, Harding has been made  lo be ihe sh*-bitch from' 1*11 itf  Ihe figure skating world and  pooooooor Nancy is the darling  of the eat-your-dinner-in-front-  of-lhe-idiot-box world.  It hasn't been proven that  Harding is responsible for the  attack on Kerrigan, though it's  likely she is because of the  Michael Jacksonesque vibes she  emits in every televised appearance.  She admits she's a Grade A  bitch and doesn't fit into the typical mold of a figure skater ���  whatever that is ��� and I now  feel il is my duly to tell you, oh  valuable readers, that Tonya  Harding is responsible for the  malicious attack on the evil government-designed robot Kerrigan.  Huh?  That's right, and no, I haven't  spent a strange week inside a  geodesic bubble with a direct  News of the World link-up into  what's left of my frontal lobes.  I have discovered, lhanks lo a  midnight visit by an alien ...  friend who popped by lo try and  collect some money I owed him  lhal Ihe US Department of Keeping America the Best in the Eyes  of the Rest of Ihe World  (KABERW) built Nancy Kerrigan.  And you thought she was a  sweet, pampered little middle-  class twinky with a nice smile.  Hah. She's Mr. Dala with  breasts!  She was built piece by piece  by odious geeks in white lab  coats named "Wendell, Muffy,  Biff and Hirito" from old Mexican-built Volkswagons, several  dozen used micro-wave ovens  and a palamino pony named  Sanchez.  They had hoped lo unveil  their Kerrigan (a word which  means "artificial star" in the scientific community") during the  1988 Calgary Winter Olympics  but, my alien friend reported,  "Ihey were afraid of Canada Customs."  Also, as they were plugging in  Ihe Be-Katarina-Witt-in-a-Week  (produced by Nintendo-Mexico  Inc.) program, her right side  made a loud ding and she fell  over onto the ice, beeping like a  frightened Herbie the Love Bug.  So, here we are six years later  and the Kerrigan model is in  prime form. Who could tell?  Tonya Harding, that's who.  puck's bruise  The diminutive evil blonde  beast accidently 'thorked' (the  sound skates make on rubber  matting) into Kerrigan's dressing  room during the 1992 American  Championships and saw her  pumping oil inlo her left armpit  that make that sqwerka sqwer-  ka" sound when they're being  used.  �� ��  Hah. She's  Mr. Data with  breasts...  Frightened, Harding slowly  thorked out of the room before  Kerrigan's cognizance program  could zero in on her and ever  since that day, Tonya's been hying lo expose Kerrigan and the  stale department responsible for  creating her.  She paid her ex-husband Jeff  Gillooly (a word which means  dim in Ihe hollow-headed crimi  nal underworld) to try and stop  this cheating force. Meanwhile,  Harding's former body guard,  Shawn Eckhardt, accidently discovered that if you pound Kerrigan a good one on her right eye,  a Volkswagon commercial jingle  play and she would click off  So the duo hired a guy to  whack her on the eye only he got  the instructions wrong. He  thought they said whack her on  the right thigh. He was also too  short to get the job done properly.  As you know, Kerrigan was  hit below her knee and after  numerous pokings and prodings  from doctors hired by the  Department of KABERW and  several television screen tests,  she's fine and will compete in  Lillehammer, Norway.  Harding, meanwhile, is in  deep pooh and it gets deeper  every day.  My alien pal said he believes  Tonya will "disappear" and wind  up living a rather rich lifestyle in  a Kamchalkan village populated  by the descendants of the cast of  Fiddler on the Roof.  -JihijM^  & February  Specials  VARIETY ii;:!:,?��� FOODS  ��  NATUREWORKS �����"����* W'*"  Nutrition Centre Inc.  %***>%.

Instead of chasing  after and trying to score with a  rubber puck, a brass puck is  used and players maneuver il  wilh small sticks.  In addition, a mask, snorkel  and fins are required lo allow  players to compete on an even  playing field...below the surface. "We do have a few extra  masks for people who don't  have any equipment," Law said.  Running until April, the program will continue every Friday  night, and depending on the  number of interested players,  teams will be selected.  About "six or seven" veterans of Ihe sport will be returning  lo participate, to help explain  the sport lo newcomers.  If you're interested and don't  have the equipment, Law said it  should cost about $100-150 lo  outfit yourself with the gear.  As for what criteria or prerequisites ihere are to play the  sporl, Law said, "The biggest  thing is you have lo enjoy Ihe  waler."  The sport doesn't require  super-athletic ability and conditioning, she said. "We have had  lots of overweight people play  and they're nol overweight  now." So, any blob can do it  and the exercise value is, as any  waler sporl is, great for the  heart, lungs and most muscles.  Law started the underwater  hockey program in ihe winter of  1992, before the pool closed for  renovations, after playing Ihe  sporl for five years in Prince  George. "I played up Ihere and I  jusl wanled to continue on with  it," said Law, a member of Ihe  Underwater Hockey Association  of B.C.  The games arc co-ed and if  you're interested, all you have  to do is show up Ihe first Friday  evening after the pool opens.  Cosl is $5 per evening.

Kids  bike  group  setting  example  by Don Anderson  Gibsons youths no longer  have lo worry about falling  Ihrough ihe cracks. They can  jusl ride over Ihem.  The Sprockids Bike Program, initialed by teacher Doug  Delwiller at Gibsons Elementary School, is gaining national  attention and may be used as an  example for other schools  around llie Coast and beyond.  'The idea is lo give a situation where students of all abilities can participate to build their  self-esteem and gel themselves  involved in a heallh activity,"  said Delwiller, a member of the  board of directors of the  Sprockids Cycling Sociely.  "Mountain biking seemed to  be a really good vehicle, a sort  of 'in-lhing' wilh young people  right up into high schools."  It was about a year ago lhat  Delwiller initiated the program  al Gibsons Elementary, and he  says the results have been  encouraging. The program was  written up in Ihe February issue  of Mountain Bike Aclion,  which he describes as "the bible  of mountain biking."  The program consists of a  curriculum guide for teachers  on how lo sel up a mountain  bike program in Ihe school. The  program looks at everything,  from maintenance and bike care  to riding skills and nutrition.  The sociely has now set its  sights on developing a bike park  "where kids can go and have a  safe place for riding."  Delwiller and Sprockids  director Ty leaser reviewed  potential sites on Ihe CoAjl  dccidiii'g-|b Wo'BirrqibsohiJ'  former garbage dump as the site  for the mountain bike park.  "It is really good for Ihis end  of ihe peninsula because kids  from Langdale, Gibsons, Cedar  Grove and Ihe high school can  gel there very easily without  travelling on any major roads,"  Delwiller said.  The entire process, particularly the aclual on-sile work,  will be video laped and any  related information will be presented lo other schools on Ihe  Coasl lo encourage further par-  licipation and the extension of  the program.  Interestingly, Ihe idea was  spawned by Detwiller's own  interest in Ihe sporl and participation in various races.  "I got out Ihere with a lol of  young kids thai looked kind of  wild and reminded me of what I  was like when I was young," he  said. "They helped me along  and encouraged me, and I  thoughl ihis was the greatest  ihing lo gel into the school system."  Last year, club races attracted more than 100 kids at a lime  from around the Coasl. Cash  prizes were awarded and  Delwiller promises more races  are this spring and summer.  "We arc looking al really  gelling going in March and in  April, May and June; we'll have  al leasl a race a monlh," he said.  The final race, scheduled for  )unc, is expected lo be held at  the mountain bike park when  il's completed. Delwiller said it  will cosl upwards of $ 15,000 lo  develop lite park, with assistance likely coming from  provincial government grant  programs and local businesses.

At present, anyone who dials 911  assuming Ihe Coast already has the ser  vice in place is met with this message:  "Emergency service on 911 is nol  available in this community. If your call  is an emergency, hang up and call the  agency direct."  Unfortunately, nol everybody may  know the exact number of Ihe emergency service required, Higgs said. In the  event of an emergency, a person is  faced with 12 different numbers for  police and fire service between Gibsons, Port Mellon and Halfmoon Bay.  (Ambulance service for the Coast  falls under one number).  Higgs has been working on bringing  the system lo the Coast for two years;  most recently he has directed his energies toward forging an agreement wilh  the Greater Vancouver Regional District (GVRD).  The GVRD currently administers the  911 system for the Lower Mainland and  neighboring communities, such as  Whistler.  "What we are trying to do is hook  into their existing system, which would  be a great benefit to us. We wouldn't  have to provide a lot of the infrastructure that is already in place with that  system," Higgs said.  When a 911 call is placed, it would  be dealt with by a central dispatch unit  in Vancouver. Both the phone number  and address of the residence is listed on  a computer monitor almost immediately  after the call is placed.  The caller is typically asked which  service he or she requires ��� ambulance, fire or police ��� and the call is  transferred to a central dispatch line for  either service.  In other words, a caller seeking  assistance from the ambulance service  would likely end up talking to someone  in Victoria where the head dispatch  office is located.  From there, an ambulance would be  dispatched to the appropriate location  on the Coast. The system may appear  complex, but Higgs said it is faster than  the existing system on the Coast. When  a call is placed to the fire department, it  is received by Anderson Alarm and  Answering Ltd., a private paging company in Sechelt.  The problem with the system is that  although every member of the fire  department carries a pager, it does not  always work if the member is outside  the vicinity of the call.  Staff Sgt. Cam Reid of the Sechelt  RCMP detachment called the implementation of the system "a life-saving  issue."  Commuters  iron out  Association  kinks  by Ian Cobb  All aboard!  The Sunshine Coast Commuters Association (SCCA) took  an important first step in its  young life as a non-profit sociely  Feb. 10 when it held its first  annual general meeting.  About 65 people filed into the  Gibsons Elementary School auditorium to hear about the association and lo establish the framework for ils first full year of taking on Ihe BC Ferries Corporation.  Wilh concerns aboul fares,  scheduling and service, and vowing to push the ferry corporation  about those matters for Coast residents, the SCCA was formed in  June 1993 and became an official  non-profit society Jan. 13.  "We've found Ihe bureaucracy  we're up against very complex,"  association president Don Sherwood told Ihe audience.  But with reams of "research,  research, research" at its disposal,  the association is geared to bombard the feny corporation with a  letter- and fax-writing campaign,  as well as a couple of planned  visits lo Victoria by association  members.  The letter-writing campaign  has been "a little bit of a voice in  the wilderness so far," Sherwood  said.  Sherwood lold the audience  lhat, in the short time the association has been alive, ils members  have made contacts with the feny  corporation and with local governments and they're looking forward to growing and continuing  their battle.  "All ihis work has brought Ihis  vehicle forward lo this moment  and Ihis vehicle can now be used  to express your concerns and  questions, ll is now at a point in  time that Ihis is your association,"  he said.  After a brief delay in which  guest chair Earl Basse, mayor of  Sechelt, failed to appear and former Gibsons mayor Dianne  Strom was hustled aboard to  chair the meeling, Ihe association  voted on keeping membership  dues at $5 and accepted ihe society's annual budget of $3,320.  After that il became a little  more complicated as Ihe group  sought lo elect ils new board of  directors for the year.  At first the group voted lo  keep ihe number of directors at  eight and ihe process of nominations began, bul after nine names  had been presented and the group  faced an election process, a man  in the audience reminded the  group thai the SCCA constitution  stales "eight or more" people can  sil on Ihe hoard  The members then reversed  their decision and Ihe nine names  nominated stood as this year's  directors. Dwighl Dion, Ken  Erikson, Michael Guy, David  Newall, John Newman, Peler  Peach, Kriss Rubynik, Don Sherwood and Dianne Strom will  serve as Ihe SCCA 1994 board of  directors and Robert Ray will act  as a stand in.  Another snag developed in the  meeting when the group discussed whether or not it should  hire an auditor to check Ihe  books. Il was eventually decided  the association would prepare its  books for review by an auditor  and if il was necessary, they  would hire one.  The association meets every  Tuesday aboard the 6:30 a.m.  ferry.  WEARE  YOUR  ���> SUNSHINE*  ���   YOUR  ONLY  SUNSHINE!  *^New to the Coast...
