The roadblocks will continue throughout the holiday season in an effort to  curb drinking drivers, said officers. These  roadblocks will be set up near liquor outlets.  Motorists are urged to drive defensively as winter conditions are apparent  i and ^specially during early morning hows  ; when roads are icy.  RCMP also urge motorists to have  their-vehicles properly equipped for win-  0 ter  drivingv with  snow  tires,  adequate  1 windshield, wipers, and the like.

Water rate increase is cited  as first step to upgrading  GIBSONS���Whatever happened to bylaw  ' 237? No-one really seems to know.  In December 1972, village council  gave three readings to the bylaw, which  was aimed at establishing increased water  rates in the municipality.  Under normal circumstances, it then  would have received final reading, been  adopted and submitted to Victoria.  But it disappeared. Council records  show that, for some reason, it progressed  no farther than third reading.  Aid. Kurt Hoehne noted the enigma  in his water report, submitted to council's Nov. 27 meeting.  He stressed the need for an increased  water rate to pay for essential improvement to the village water system.  Rather than approach, the $280,000  upgrading project on a piecemeal baste,  he recommended that the village borrow  the necessary capital to Improve the water  $yptem aa a whole, and repay the loan  through increased water rates.  Hoehne oaid tliat water rotes had not  increased in the village since 19(S5.  . "We paid for years a very low water  rate and were happy about it," he told  council. "Now, when all services h_*ve  gone up, we are in the very unfortunate  position, also, to have to raise the cost  of the most essential service, water.  Pinpointing the importance of a good  water system, he, noted: "Even a $1 million sewer system is no good without the  water to move it."  Water rates were first established in  the village in 1D43, he reported, when  a figure of $6 per year was set.  In 1965, this was raised to $30 to pay  for a $100,000 improvement program to  the system.  Then, 'tOn Dec. 5, 1972, bylaw 237  was read three times for establishing new  water rates, but it never came up for  final reading and submision _o Victoria."  Present revenue from water rates  amounts to $2,153 annually from the 684  users within the village, and an additional $22 from 97 users outside the  municipal boundaries.  According to a study prepared by consulting engineers Dayton and Knight, the  village should upgrade its water system  to the extent of $280,000, he said.  And this expenditure, Hoehne ex.  plained, is "only to upgrade our existing  system to give the essential home service  and fire protection which we are lacking  right now.  "We know we have to raise the water  rate. To' what extent we do not know,  yet. We have made preliminary calculations and we feel that we should borrow  ���eoa- pago B-7  Lions seek $1,000  in CARS campaign  SECHELT���Members    of   the Sunshine  Coast Lions Club are again "hard at  it" raising funds for Canadian Arthritis  and Rheumatism Society (CABS).  This year's chairman is Barrie Tait  who has set a target of $1,000 for the  Sechelt Peninsula.  In view of the widespread area, the  campaign will be conducted by mail, with  about 3,000 letters going out to Sunshine  Coast residents.  This" year, the 25th anniversary of  CARS, the province-wide campaign seeks  $350,000 in the fight against arthritis.  CARS provides specialized treatment  services for patients with arthritis who  are assisted by physiotherapy services,  occupational therapy services through a  mobile workshop,, which makes two trips  annually up the Sunshine Coast.  Those with severe cases of arthritis  are referred by their family physicians  to the CARS intensive care program at  The Arthritis Centre in Vancouver, the  major treatment centre for arthritis in  North America, where they stay at Rufus  Gibbs Lodge, the home away from home  for patients on the treatment programs.  SUNSHINE Coast Regional District has  made formal objection to bearing the  cost of elector .enumeration, made necessary by a recent change to the Municipal Act.  Directors made a motion to this effect  Nov, 29 following submission of a letter  from the regional district of Central  Kootenay outlining its opposition to bearing -enumeration costs.  Central Kootenay administer E. ' T.  Bodard quoted a resolution passed by  his regional district:  "That a letter be written to the UBCM  (Union of B.C. Municipalities) and... all  regional districts indicating that the regional district of Central Kootenay opposes having the costs of securing the  new voters' list being levied on the  municipalities and the electoral areas of  the regional districts."  Bodard noted that "a very large cost  will be incurred in order to accommodate  this change to the Municipal Act and, as  yet, there have been no indications from  the provincial government that they will  be prepared to underwrite the costs..."  Director Frank West said that renu- "  meration would have to be carried out.  locally in 1974 in order to have the new  voters' list ready for the 1975 elections.  /"We must allow in the budget about  $6,000, or about $1,000 for each electoral  area." .  / He felt that the provincial government should foot, the bill for remuneration since it would not, then, have to  'prepare its own voters' list'for provincial  elections.  On the motion of Director Harry Almond, the board agreed to support a resolution similar to that of Central Kootenay.  West stressed the importance of carrying but a more careful census than  had been done previously.  "The federal census was not a gooo.  one," he said, noting that many of the  more remote homes in the district had  been overlooked.  "We Should get a local resident who  is willing to put the work in and look  in all the nooks and crannies."  Under other board news, Director  Norm Watson pressed for regional district  aid to Sechelt library and Cunningham's  ambulance service.  He noted that the library served not  only the village of Sechelt, but outlying  ......_    ...      ^  Christmas decor  contest slated  S___H___T-~Merchants    are invited    to  .'X decorate their'^  Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce's Christmas decor contest.  In the first o. what is hoped will be  an annual event, chairman Bob Scales  said the chamber will present "a beautiful trophy" to the merchant who has the  best decorated store in the Sechelt area.  Overall decor will be the determining  factor, said Scales.  Only those merchants entering the  contest by informing Scales or co-chairman Dick Proctor, will be eligible to enter  the contest. Applications must be received  by Dec. 14. Judges will tour the shopping  area on Saturday, Dec. 15.  Photos of the -winning business will  appear in the next week's edition of The  Peninsula Times.  Ferry schedule error  in last week's paper  IN LAST week's issue of The Times, we  published details of the temporarily  reduced schedule of ferry sailings between Langdale and Horseshoe Bay.  Unfortunately, one of those naatly little gremlins reversed the departure times  for the two terminals. We apologize to  travellers for any inconvenience this may  have caused them.  Correct schedule, which will be in  effect until Dec. 7, is as follows:  Leave Horseshoe Bay���7:55 a.m., 10:10,  12:45 p.m��� 2:40, 4:55, 7:20, 10:10.

"The library  board is forming an association" to enable them, legally, to accept ^ grant.  'They need a grant, they are entitled  to a grant and they should have one."  Watson noted that the village of Sechelt had contributed land for a new  library building at a cost of $5,000.  "It's high time the regional district  did something."  He warned that unless the board approved a grant for the library, .the organizers would submit a petition to the  district calling for a referendum on a  wholly-subsidized facility.  If the referendum passed, the district  would have to support the library on the  basis of $1.50 per year for each person  served by it. "There are 2,800 people in  the area," he noted.  "The board should d-cide whether to  go to referendum or work on a grant  system."  Also:  "It's  high time some  support  ���see page B-3  Sechelt Legion poppy  campaign raises $1M7  SEX3HBLT-���Poppy drives are not only  alive, they're thriving, thank you.

Darlene Johns on  Girl, 20, dies  in auto crash  DAVIS BAY���Twenty-year-old Darlene  Johnson was killed when her vehicle  was in collision with another on Highway  101 near Bay Road.  Miss Johnson was driver of a 1966  two-door Acadian when the accident oc-  cured about 2:25 a.m. Sunday. Passenger,  Adrian Vaughn Ofterbro, 20, received  minor injuries, RCMP said.  Driver of the other vehicle, Calvin  Joseph Craigen, 28, was shaken up. Two  other passengers in Craigen's 1964 Comet,  Mr. and Mrs. Frank Joe, were admitted  ���to St. Mary's Hospital with cuts about  their heads. A fourth rider was Robert  Reid who sustained minor injuries.  The Johnson girl was pinned in the  vehicle for about 15 minutes, said police.  A charge of criminal negligence has  been laid against Craigen, jiolice told  The Times.  Miss Johnson, a former employee of  Stcdman's Stare, 3oehelt, has iresfld-d  in the Sechelt area for the past 14 months,  formerly lived in Quesnel. Oftebro is  also from Quesnel.

""^As every store-o\vner    knows, the  Times gone by  THE FOLLOWING articles are taken  from the file, of The Times of 1972,  1968 and 1963.  Dec. 6, 1972���All-candidate meeting sponsored by Pender Harbour Parent-Teacher Association meeting turned  into a discussion c. whether or not Pender Harbour Secondary School is doing  an adequate job of educating children.  , Principal Don Montgomery told a  public meeting that Elphinstone physical  education classes are often overcrowded  with as many as 70 students due to inadequate gymnasium facilities. The meeting was called to hear the school district's  proposal for a $429,000 borrowing referendum to upgrade the gym facilities.  The government auto crusher was  in the area.  Dec. 4, 1968���Sechelt School District prepared to vote on a $1,620,200  referendum to improve science facilities  at secondary and elementary levels.  Gibsons Mayor Fred Feeney, in explaining the need for a sewer system, tol^  a public hearing the. details of a proposed  plan to cost taxpayers $425,000.  Following candidates were nominated  to run for school board: Dr. Walter  Burtnick, John Hayes, Rev. Barrie Jenks,  Richard Clayton. Seeking Sechelt council seats were: Joe Benner, Adele de  Lange, Norm Watson and Morgan Thompson. In Gibsons, Walter Peterson and  Ken Goddard sought re-election to  council.  Mackenzie NDP nominated a Van-  anda man, Don Lockstead, to represent  the district at the next provincial election.  Dec. 4, 1963-���A new newspaper,  The Sechelt Peninsula Times, made its  inauguration.  Pender Harbour Chamber of Commerce names John Dunlop president.

Ten minutes  at he deserved social  ��ssistance-   Jt  makes  me  always   later, aboard .the bus, I caught up with    unfortunately, by the one who happen^  And all alone I've thought the U.SA    feel Proud to b^ able to state that the   them all standing at the road side while    to be coming up innocently on the oppos-  &     _.      .       .   **  .*.  *     '       viitwiiVtoi.   _r_f   ��kYY_r___r___r_iV____   i-VM-ir_1_-   /_A______i____*_tf       n 'Unl-f _*v��t..-_.    _#:�����_     ��_��il.    _1_���mj    _�� _��-      _._.       :*.__   _.:_J_.   ~��   al_.   _._..___-.__.     r   i i    number of employable people depending  on social assistance has been decreasing.  % This year we even temporarily ; reached  , the point of having no people depending  on social assistance. Again, I have to give  credit to the band council for this because, of ^the band's work projects which  helped to establish jobs to keep everyone  . 'employed.  .,    Many problems ��� still exist. Many of  'them are connected with alcohol abuse.  " The band leaders and band members are  very concerned about this problem and  are already planning how to battle this.  I-wish them success with their project,  especially my successor, Tom Paul,  crowds of shoppers who make Christmas-time profitable are invariably accompanied by increased numbers %l  shoplifters.  Police clearly indicate that shoplifting is a mushrooming crime problem that  becomes particularly acute as Christmas  nears. \-  A theft or attempted theft is reported as shoplifting only if it is actually observed. More often than not, an  arrest results.  Police officials, and merchants, too,  attribute the rise in shoplifting to "self-  service" stores and to the view of a  seemingly number of people that stealing from a business is less wrong than  stealing from a person.  As Christmas approaches, the value  of shoplifted merchandise rises much  morb steeply than does the actual number of reported shopliftings.  A variety of measures are taken to  discourage shoplifters. Some stores employ guards to scare off would-be shoplifters.  In any event, shoplifting and providing security, have become a majors expense for many store owners.  Poet's Comer  ���Your, contributions are invited  .'/f*Shv.

I never heard what had happened,  who the girl was nor if any of those cars  managed to catch the ferry.  Thee is another type of aggressor who'  won't slow down behind me when I am  making a right turn off the highway into  my subdivsion access road. The line is  _61id there because immediately beyond  our turn-off is a bend. Almost always, in  ite side of the curve. I have had several  experiences with this sort of criminal on  Highway lpi and am lucky to be alive.

I waited for 40 minutes until  12:30, when a neighbor noticed my plight  and phoned the bus stop in Halfmoon  Bay. She was told, that owing to weather  conditions the bus had taken the Highway  101 route instead of Redrooffs Road.  I feel strongly that this' changing of  routes is not fair to the residents of Redrooffs Road, and I would like to bring  this incident to your attention.

It was certainly appreciated and went a long way towards making the event a success.  ALVIN DRIBNENKI, Sec.-Treas.  Cooperation appreciated  by Indian's social worker  Editor,  The Times  Sir: I worked for the Sechelt Indian  Band as a social worker from Aug. 30,  1071, until today, Nov. 30, 1073���two  years and three months.  After a Job interview by the band  manager, Mr. Clarence Joe, and a meeting with the Sechelt Band Council, I was  hired. Soon after I started, Jn a general  meeting, the lendors of the Sechelt band  introduced me to the band members.  As a social worker for the band I  dealt with many different problems: fJn-  onciol problems, housing, education, family, child-welfare, alcoholism, drugs,  health and  legal problems.   With some  problems the band manager, home-school  /co-ordlnator,  community health worker,  and the council became involved and it  was our job to attempt to find the best  solution together. In this I have admired  tho approach towards these problems by  tho leaders of tho bond. In their approach  their   former   experiences   and   cultural  knowledge  was  needed  to tully under-  otand what the actual problem was. There  wero times  we came to a solution and  thoro were timca that wo come only as  far as realizing how little we could do  about the real problem, because of the  size of thot problem. However the leaders of tho band do not run away from  them. An obvioun example of this is Uie  attitude towards tho housing project, of  |   which thoy sometimes must havo thought  that lt would never materialize.  I would  also  like  to  point  out tho  good  co-operation  I  experienced  locally  from the workers of tho department of  human  resources,  the  probation  officer, ,  tho doctors and other mtt ot the medical clinic, tho RCMP, teachers, the local  merchant-, public health nurses, B.C.

HappeWngs around the Harbour Susan Beaven heads  .A  ax.a..     ��� by KrtMe��� yuii 88M068 Halfmoon Bay unit  FOR most of iis, the temporary power  failure a week ago Saturday was just  a minor inconvenience/But for some it  was more than that One group of local  citizens, members of the Community  Band, had met for an evening of music.  "When the lights went out, they lit candles and continued playing by candlelight Doesn't that sound romantic?  But there was a much more dramatic  event in Garden Bay during the blackout,  which in that area lasted much longer-  regular service wasn't restored until noon  of Sunday. And meanwhile, on Saturday  evening, Sue Zuckerman, who with her.  husband Chuck had planned to have her  baby delivered at. home, discovered that  the child was going to arrive without  even the benefit of electricity.  And so she did, with Chuck taking  charge of the delivery (although with professional help standing by in case of  need). Sue's baby daughter was delivered  about 6 a.m. Sunday.  Ail that was the night after the Fishermen's Homecoming dinner, which was '  a huge success. Elsewhere in this issue  is a picture which Jim Donnelly snapped  at that event  Sunny Suginobu won the door prize  at the dinner, a beautiful floater jacket  (a bit large for her, but we hear a cooperative fiance has found a solution to that  problem). Sunny must be lucky, she was  also the winer of one of the prizes at  OKtoberfest a few weeks ago.  I hear from Joyce Fowler that a group  of men and women from Madeira Park  and Garden Bay are forming a mixed  choir. They've held their first meeting,  and Joyce says there are some really  good voices, both male and female. This  group is just being organized now, and  hasn't yet established the time and place  of meetings. If you're interested in taking  part, call Doreen Lee at 883-2283 for further information.  Tentatively, the choir plans a Gay  Twenties concert, but of course no time  has been set for this. ���  Jo Benjafield, secretary treasurer of  the group committee, tells me that the  recently formed cub pack is off to a good  start, with about 11 boys participating.  She tells me we're very fortunate this  year in having experienced leaders for  this group: Gary Bennett (who recently  joined the staff at the liquor store) ia  Akola, and Alan Thompson is Baloo. Jo  also telja. me that the upper age,limit  has ben extended: boys from 9 to 11  years of age are invited to come out  Wednesday 7 to 8:30 p.m. In the Legion  Hall.  Any of you who intend to make a  contribution to the health, clinic in lieu  of sending Christmas cards this year, aa  suggested in this column last week, should  take note of this deadline: only contributions received by December 13 can be  acknowledged in the Christmas issue of  The Times. That's easy to remember, too.  It's Uie same date as the last mailing day  for Christmas cards. Mrs. Gene Splcher  and Joan Bae are accepting these donations.  Willie Mottls showed me an interesting letter he'd received from Bryan Lewis, one of tho divers who took part in  the spearflshlng meet held here November 4. I've heard some strong crltlclama  of the akin divers, and think it'* only  fair that you should know about the  hlgh standards of behaviour in Uie group  Mr. Lewis is writing about /-'  The itaeet at Pender Harbour lasted  four hours. The divers spread put front  Gunboat Pass to the mouth of Bargain  Bay, some of them travelling all the way  from Madeira park to Bargain Bay and  back to Gunboat Pass to find their fish.  To quote from the letter:  "The compettiion is based on obtaining a set number of fish of each species  which must be over a certain size limit.  The competitors are free diving'���that is,  breath hold diving as opposed to the more  popular scuba diving. It is a strenuous  sport, with the average diver, over a  four hour competition, diving to' an average of 30 to 40 feet for approximately  One minute. Although some dives to 50 or  60 feet for nearer to two minutes are usually required if you are to find all the  species. Sunday's (Nov. 4) meet was particularly gruelling as it was held on a  high tide, making an extra 15 feet of  diving necessary each time."  A total pf 76 fish were taken at the  Pender Harbour meet, of which a large  number were distributed to local residents. This was done in accordance with  the rules of the association under which  these men and women compete. These  state that all fish not used by the divers  must be donated to a charitable organization br otherwise distributed in the area  in which they are caught Willie Mattis  looked after the distribution of the fish  from this meet '      .  Twelve men and one woman participated, three of them members of the Canadian national spearfishing team. If any  of you are interested in learning more  about this sport, er perhaps in taking  part, you should contact Mrs. Patty-Ann  Cumpstone, competition officer of the Association of B.C. Diving Clubs, RR 3,  Mountain View Crescent, Duncan, B.C.  or Bryan G. Lewis, 704 Townley Street,  Coquitlam.  Mrs. Splcher tells me that there is a  very active group of senior citizens (ond  one need be only 40 or over to take part)  meeting one a month in the Harbour. The  meetings feature card games and good  fellowship, and are held on the third  Monday of each month in the Legion Hall,  Madeira Park. One meeting this fall featured a film showing by Sam Lamont  of some of the wildlife and scenery seen  by him on his travels northwards up the  coast. Mrs. Fred Olsen is president of  this group, and I'm told they even arrange transportation to the meetings for  anyone who finds it difficult to provide  his or her own. If you want to know  more about this, call Mrs. Olsen ot 883-  2780,  HALFMOON BAY���Halfmoon Bay Hos-.  ' pital Auxiliary held its annual meeting on Nov. 26 with president Sue Browning in the chair and 1,2 members present.  Reports were given of a very successful financial year, with excellent results  from the hospital gift shop, the thrift  shop and the Regal line. Tribute was paid  to the group of knitters wnbse busy fingers had kept the gift shop so well stocked throughout the year and to the many  friends who had supported the thrift shop  withV donations and the Regal project  with-orders.  The members agreed to send a donation to the Robert Cunningham memorial  fund for a heart and lung resuscitator for  the ambulance.  Officers elected were: Susan Beaven,  president; Frances Cook, vice president;  Olive Comyn, secretary-treasurer. Appointed as conveners were Jean Laird, thrift  shop; Susan Beaven, co-ordinating council; Ronnie Dun, publicity; Ruth Forrester, gift shop.  The auxiliary adjourned for the  Christmas recess with the next meeting  scheduled for Feb. 4.  LADIES of the Canadian Power Squadron  may wme but of thfe gaUey and on to  the bridge if tftey so desire.   /       %  At the refc6ht Canadian Power Squadron's annual meeting at Saint John, NB.  Nov. 3-4, a vote was taken which how  permits present lady associates and future lady graduates of their basic course,  the choice of becoming full members or  lfldv &ssociEit���s  What difference does it make? Well to  explain, to become a power squadron  member or lady associate you must first  pass the boating course. Those who are  successful in the examinations are then  eligible to joir_ This is the only way to  get in. No one can buy his or her way _  in or join in any other manner. You  must pass the boating examination, apply  for membership and be accepted. N  The local squadron is an educational  organization. After becoming a member  you may then go oh andtake more advanced courses. This included the ladies.  They could fly the flag, engage in all  squadron activities and be issued certificates of qualification.  They did not, however, have the privilege or the responsibility of voting at  the meetings, or taking a major role in  Cruises, executive positions or teaching  power squadron classes.  It did hot necessarily mean that the  ladies desired more power; in fact 80  per cent of them indicated they would  Remain associates mostly because of extra  costs, duplicate rosters, magazines and  the like. But they wanted recognizatioh  as persons with equal ability to, retain  ' and put into action the theory they have  learned in the same classroom as the men,  passing the same examinations. This they  have proved they can do. Now it is most  gratifying to know the power squadrons  have democratically proven this is the  wish of the majority of members to provide equal membership to women.  ..������" There is no fee charged to lady associates. Membership would entail the  same fee as paid by the men.  It is to be noted that once a lady  associate obtains membership, she would  not be permitted to return to lady associate status, y ��-  r    This situation has arisen hot because  the ladies were after equality rather because they have proven themselves to  'be worthy of membership. Especially true  '\ of Sunshine Coast Power Squadron members whose wives have kept up course  for course with their husbands* increasing  the- family boating pleasure immensely.

A leaking 45-gallon oil  barrel had soaked rubble under the  ���house but firemen's prompt reactions  were able to keep damage to a minimum. Robillard cautioned against  having oil barrels in Rehouse. "They  should be outside and on a proper  stand," he said. Firemen in this picture are unidentified.  Counters aldermen's charges . . *  Gibsons mayor defends  to 'commute'  GIBSONSMMayor  Wally   Peterson  has  hit back at criticism from aldermen  on his prolonged absence from council  meetings. .  Aid. Bill Laing told council Nov. 13  that he had not seen Peterson since taking his seat on council three meetings  previously.  "We would be remiss if we can go  along with this and not say anything,"  he said.  Aid. Ted Hume, also, was critical of  the mayor's attendance. "He's been in  town, but he didn't have time to attend  bur meetings; just attend to his own  business. I think he's got a lot of gall."  Peterson recently moved to Armstrong  with his wife, but did not resign from  council.  . Attending his last council meeting  .Noy^27brfore.moving permanjently to _  join' his family,' Peterson charged: "Mr.  Laing was not concerned! enough to attend either his own election or what  should have been his insallation meeting  and Mr. Hume was not concerned enough  to return from his holiday travels to  make up a quorum at a previous; meeting. I wonder what the sudden concern  is now."  And he questioned the wisdom of discussing his attendance record in public.  "I think they (Laing and Hume) showed lack of ethics and very poor judgment  in bringing up all these discussions before  the public without either checking the  Municipal Act or consulting their very  capable municipal clerk ox myself," he  said.  "I am sure that you have all been  aware that .1 have spent every other  week here since (moving to Armstrong),  that I have been in constant contact  with our clerk, Mr. Copland, and that  I am always as available as your nearest  telephone.  ''In my absence, your acting mayor,  Winston Robinson, has had full powers  to act on my behalf. If I had resigned at  that time, I could not have been replaced,  according to the Municipal Act, for  some two months. The retiring municipal  , clerk. Dave Johnston, and our present  village clerk, Jack Copland, felt that it  would be 'better to have my knowledge  and experience available than to be without a mnyor at all during this interval.  "For public information, all of our  heavy work load is completed during Uie  first half ot the year. This consists of preparing a preliminary budget to gain temporary funds with which to operate until  we receive our first assessment roll, establish a budget, and then set a mill rate  to obtain necessary funds.  "The tax dollars do not come in until  tho, first part of July. Committees ore  established to carry out the various functions outlined in the budget. It is then  Just a matter of carrying out these functions."  Peterson stood on his record.  "During my terms in office, we have  upgraded our water system to an amount  of $113,000, installed a complete sewer  system, completed our five-year project  on Holland. Park at the Municipal Hall,  built a beautiful library and museum as.  well as doubling the size of our municipal  main office, and completed a development plan for our whole village, along  with a new zoning bylaw. This bylaw,  which controls development in an organized manner, is designed for the benefit  of everyone.  "Arrangements are being made to upgrade Our main roads through Gibsons,'  giving us possibly the highest percentage of roads blacktopped in any municipality in British Columbia. This is just  a part of the work we have accomplished.  I feel sure that our taxes have always  been kept to a minimum and that the  tax dollar has always produced the .maximum returns.  "I have introduced our incoming mayor, Mr. Labonte, to his responsibilities.  I feel confident that I am leaving everything in good order and in very capable  hands with Larry Labonte as mayor and  Jack Copland our very competent village clerk.  "The only liability I can see in the  village is the lack of support from our  local "oops���sorry" gazette (Coast News).  But, who knows? Maybe, in time, even  that will change. I wish to thank you  all and wish you the best of luck.  Aid. Winston Robinson said council  appreciated that Peterson had put a lot  of work into municipal  affairs.  "He has put a lot of time and effort  into the village to see that it progresses  as quickly as it could."  Hume denied that he had shown a  lack of concern by failing to attend one  meeting to make up a quorum.  "I've lost two weeks of paid holidays  because of village work," he said. "That  was time I was meant to enjoy and  spend with my wife and children."

The move follows stiff opposition  from conservationists to the district's in-,  stallation of a gate restricting access to  the Chapman area.  . In a press release, the board explained: "The closure,is considered a precautionary measure, largely for health reasons. TKe board is extremely concerned  about the basin, as Chapman Creek is the  main source of domestic water supply  for the Sunshine Coast between West  Sechelt and Gower Point."  Sechelt Rod and Gun Club spokesman  earlier supported preservation of the  Chapman Creek basin for water supply  purposes, but condemned closure of the  area to hikers and tourists since logging  operatiotos were carrying on unabated.  It was .unfair, they felt, to close the  area to individusils, but to permit extensive logging operations, which they claim  pose the major pollution threat to the  watershed.  The regional dtLstrict's reply continued: "The board feels that, where possible, all forestry roads should be kept  open to the public. flow, ver, there is a  concern for possible pollution by "the  indiscriminate dumping of waste of  campers and hunters not familiar with  the possible danger to the water supply.  "For this reason, the board has recommended the logging road into Chapman Creek be closed to vehicular triaffic  as a temporary measure.  "The board hopes that the inter-disciplinary study being carried out by the  provincial government will provide guidelines regarding the various uses in ihe  watershed, including forestry, domestic  water supply and. recreation. The report  will hopefully show how this area can  best be regulated and to what extent  public use and logging can occur.  "The boiard maintains, however, that  the primary concern is the protection of  the domestic water supply for the Sunshine Coast. Should the water become  polluted1 for any reason whatsoever, the  economy of the Sunshine Coast will be  in jeopardy."     . '  Answering queries from Gibsons Wildlife Club spokesman John Hind-Smith,  chairman Lome Wolverton explained at  the board's Nov. 29 meeting that the decision to erect a gate, barring access to  the watershed, had been made toy the  board as a whole, and not by individuals.  Regional planner Ed Cuylits said the  environmental study of the area had be  gun last spring and progress reports were  now being received regularly. '  "The preliminary report is expectedin  February," he said.  Gibsons Wildlife Club member Megan  Moorcraft felt that the environmental  study should have included the use made  by members of the public of the water*  shed area.  . "Wouldn't it.have been better to know  how many people use it. This would give  an idea of what the area is being used  for and who might  be polluting,"  she'  said.  Wolverton said: "The board was confronted with a problem. We did not know  the answer, but we are trying to find! an  answer. We took the action we deemed  necessary."  On current logging operations in the  basin, "We are not happy with it, but  we can't do anything until We 'get the��'  report in February."  Director Frank West felt: -"Ax the  present moment, it is in the. public interest to have it closed. Ten thousand  people rely on it for water. If the experts advise it should be declared & health;  ar$g; ahd #. costs us money, it would be  wortHlt for the health of 10,000 people."  Hind-Smith asked why logging was  allowed to continue in the watershed area  if the board was so much against it.  Wolverton noted that logging was, under provincial control. "We sat down  with the (forestry) department and expressed concern," he said. "The board  was very strong in this regard."  Director Harry Almond stressed that:  "It's the vehicular traffic we want to.,  control Vehicles are the main culprits  for leaving garbage. We don't want to  stop individuals from going up."  Director Jim Tyner reported that it  recommendation is forthcoming from the'  board's planning    committee suggesting  that logging should  be stopped in the  Chapman Creek basin."  "This could only be a recommendation to the provincial government," added  Wolverton.  The chairman confirmed a "rumor"  voiced by Hind-Smith that a dam may  ��� be  built  across  the upper reaches  of  Chapman Creek.  ���"This is a most likely possibility in  the future for the development of pur  . water services," he said.  Conservationists are reported to be  dissatisfied with the board's answers to  the. questions posed by Hind-Smith and  Mrs. Moorcroft; ���  "We intend to take the matter farther,"  a Gibsons Wildlife Club member told The  Times after the fleeting.  1 7:  - t',  \   X-  Postal deadline  dates nearing  POSTAL deadline dates for .most. overr  seas destinations have already passed.

They scream it's  ah asphalt death trap.  Possibly it is; but. compared to the  Sechelt Peninsula, it's a driver's heaven.  We were in Victoria Friday five hours  after leaving Powell River. That's about  the same time as a trip down the Peninsula takes, but when we arrived in Victoria; we were ready to go out and have  some fun. After wrestling your car down  the Sechelt Peninsula, the only thing  you want to do is get some sleep.  The speed limit in most places on the  Island is 60 miles per hour. Cruising along  at 80 down those straight roads with -  some of the province's most beautiful  scenery was a welcome relief from a trip  down the Peninsula. If the legendary  motor manslaughter maniacs were in  evidence on the Island Highway, I didn't  see them. The only thing I did see was  a little old lady who stopped to make  a left hand turn without signalling near  Cobble Hill but there was lots of room  to go around her.  Drivers were, in general, very courteous. Where the road narrowed from two  lanes to one, people in the faster lane  spread out to let the other drivers pull  in. How often have you seen that at the  north end of Lions Gale?  HaVe you decided -beef is too costly?  Try  chicken.  Consider    this from the  '   Market News newsletter: ,  "Based on responses o questions about  buying and using, habits, the following  conclusions can be drawn: Consumers  respect chicken as a nutritious food  they consider it better value than beef,  pork, lamb or other meats.  "They want to know how to cut up  broilers so they can use chicken in more  recipes as well as to bone and freeze  chicken. They suggest recipes be included  on the package.  "They would like to see producers of  wine, mushrooms, sauces, onions and common herbs and spices include chicken  recipes on their labels."  The world is becoming chicken-  conscious.  If your grocery bill continues to soar  and you have a pet consider this: 'Tet  food ranks fourth in sales importance  among all packaged grocery groups: $16.85  out of every $1,000 spent at food outlets  go on goodies chewed up by the cats  and dogs of the country."  ������'..���'.���'���.������'"���  McKenzie Porter writing in The Sun  said the following: "The regional form  of government, introduced to consolidate  the administrations of many small townships, did not eliminate the town councils  and reeves. The metropolitan system of  government, introduced to centralize the  responsibilities of contiguous municipal-  . ities, did not eliminate the borough coun-  * tils and mayors. The politicians clung to  their offices like sitting hens and have  us five levels of government where three  had sufficed before."  That's precisely what The Times has  been campaigning about when it comes  to.consolidating the municipalities of the  Sunshine Coast.

It's a pretty worthy function"  Watson said he was not suggesting that  the board wholly subsidize the service,  since it was a commercial venture, "But  we should give it some support."  West noted that the ambulance service  was a necessity. "We will have to find  means and ways to support it."  Director Rita Relf cautioned that if  the board gave a grant to one library or  ambulance sfervice, "We would have to  give it to all of them."  The board gave first and second reading to a bylaw aimed at providing street  lighting in the Veterans Road area, near  . Gibsons.  Directors were angered by a failure  on the part of B.C. Hydro to inform them  when chemical spraying operations were  planned along the power lines.  Director Jim Tyner noted: "They tell  us when it involves a remote area like  Cloholm Falls, but when lt comes to our  watersheds, they're not too eager."  Almond felt: "We should reiterate that  they told us we would be notified (when  spraying was planned) and demand that  they do so."  West said that a B.C. Hydro representative had assured the board that it would  be informed of upcoming spraying. He  moved that the board pursue the matter  and remind B.C. Hydro of its assurances.

In a letter submitted to the regional  district's Nov. 29 meeting, spokesman  Keith Wright said his association could  have "overlooked an alternate or truck  route sign, but two detour signs appear  diverting all the ferry traffic from coming within half-a-mile of our places of  business. We, therefore, feel that we are  being discriminated against."  He continued: "For the past four  years, we have had to live with the indecisions of the Langdale cut off. Then,  this past year, the land freeze and, now,  another obstacle to make doing business  in this area as difficult as possible.  "We do pay taxes and try to be of  service to our customers, both local and  tourist. HowfeVer,. being shafted at every  turn has become a bit much."  Wright suggested that the local high-  .way engineer should view the detour  sighs "with a little common sense."  Director Norm Watson agreed that  the signs were detrimental to businessmen in the area.  The board could take no action since  the signs are the responsibility of the  highways department.

That's the way the sign will read over  what used to be known as Bernies Supetv  markety And that isn't the only change.  New owner, Bert Konings, has put in  specialty cheeses, slice meats and other  delicatessen items;  "As the weeks progress and we get  requests,  we'll put in different lines,"  Konings said.  ,      Konings is not a newcomer  to the  4food store business. For six years he was  Supervisor for Overwaitea Foods. In that  capacity he travelled the province visiting every Overwaitea store.  For the past two years he worked  for a medical company selling orthopedic inplants to orthopedic surgeons.  The two jobs kept him oh the road  and away from home too much, so when  he heard about a small business- for sale  at Sechelt, he jumped at the chance to  buy it.   .  He and his wife, Yvonne and baby  daughter, Renee, moved into the cosy  three bedrobm "quarters in the back of the  store. The store will operate from 9 a.m.  to 10 p.m., seven days a week.

We believe  by Nonavee Jones  Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints  WE BELIEVE, in being honest and true.  One of the ten commandments states,  "Thou shalt not bear false witness." And  in Proverbs we read, "Lying lips are an  abomination to the Lord, but they that  deal truly are his delight."^  Lying is the oldest vice in the world.  It made its entry into history in the first  recorded conversation, the famous interview between Eve and Satan in the Garden of Eden.  Lying is partner and accomplice of ] all  other vices. Thihk for a moment of any  vice or wrong-doing and see if it is" not  ;. surrounded and helped with lies.  Although most of us would not tell an  outright lie, steal? from or defraud our  neighbor, how about those gray areas  that stretch between the white truth and  a black lie? .   - '-  We would not steal from or lie to our  employer; but what about our income tax  returns? Doesn't that count to lie a little  and steal a little from the government?  When we cross the border from the United States to Canada, do we list all our  purchases and pay duty on the excess?  Mothers, when that bothersome neigh.  . bor calls, do you tell your child to answer  the door and say that you are not at  home?

Mrs. Edna Fisher opened the bazaar  by giving-a short address on the work  of the chapter and reminded people to  save their cancelled stamps, proceeds  from which go for cancer projects.  Door prize was won by Harry Mylrole;  Christmas cake raffle by Bessie Shaw;  Terry's junior turtle by Trida Herkers;  Barbie doll raffle by Dorothy McCallum.  Hampers were won by the following: Mrs.  J. Olsen, Mrs. E. Naylor, Gua Scheieder,  Elizabeth Ewart and Helen Weinhandel.  In Othello, Shakespeare covers this situation: "Who steals my purse steals trash  ... but he that filches from me my good  name, robs me of that which not enriches  him and makes me poor indeed."

PROPOSALS by a New Westminster, pro-  .perty management firm to discharge  treated effluent into Garden Bay-have  come under iire from two local, bodies. .  Ico Real Estate Management _ and  .Holdings Ltd; recently made application  to the pollution control branch, in Victoria  to discharge into the, bay treated effluent  from a'townhouse development and an  hotel in the area.  v , But^Garden Bay waterworks district  and the local branch of the United Fishermen mfL Allied Workers' Union have  protested the move.  1 In a copy of a letter written to the  director of the pollution control branch,  but submitted to the regional board for  information Nov. 29, the waterworks  district said:  "We, as a board, .and representing  residents of Garden Bay, a large percentage of whom live on the perimeter of  Garden Bay, wish to lodge a very strong  objection to the... application.  "We would consider there is an entirely inadequate tidal flow, in this small  bay to effectively carry away such a  large,volume of effluent.  "Furthermore, we are^of the opinion4  that Garden Bay is already overused due Y  to the large number of yachts mooring  there during the summertime;  "The tidal flow in this small, narrow  bay is barely sufficient to cope with-this  present usage. Also, from past observation  of the inadequacies of another similar  sewage treatment system near Garden  Bay, we feel confident in saying such  treatment plants do not appear to work  effectively or reliably and we do not wish  to have another, even bigger, system malfunctioning in Garden-Bay."  Waterworks district chairman H. D.  Fielding went on to press for a public  meeting to discuss Ico's application before  approval is granted.  Local fishermen protested the application oh the grounds that increased effluent discharge into the bay would adversely; affect salmon runs in nearby creeks.  !< "The present facilitiesin the area, plus  the discharge from the' large numbers  of yachts which tie there, create an al-  rady distinctly unpleasant situation,"  Wrote Merle Hately, union secretary.  :'k'"b\ir''members feel that every effort  should be made to clean up the waters,  i|q. to add to. their present pollution.'  '.' Since both letters were addressed to  the pollution control branch, the board  filed them for information.  I- Directors also filed a letter of opposition from Oyster Bay Oyster Company  to Royal Vancouver Yacht Club proposals  to build a: marina in Oyster Bay.  The company felt that the proposed,  development Would pollute.its oyster beds.';  '���':. "Oil scum and other pollutants would:.  very definitely endanger an area set aside  for cultivation of oysters, as well as salmr  on spawning,  birds and  other . wildlife  at the head of the bay, thus upsetting  the ecology as a whole."   ���  Company  spokesman,  Inge    Bremer,  urged the  board,  through  director Jim  Tyner, toi "Set the machinery in motion  to avoid a disaster of this kind>"  HAVE you, locked at the stainless steel  section in Miss Bee's lately?

Squaringly yours  ���by Maurice He__-i.ee-  ANOTHER hilarious evening was  held  x at the Sunshine Coast Country troli,  clubhouse last Friday night with the  Country Stars' square dance club in full  swing, with good old Harry Robertson,  caller, giving his tonsils a real going over.  With the various modem square dance  calls coming fast and furious, there may  have been just over two sets, but^from  outside it really sounded like a packed  hall���but, wh^t else, square dancers have  fun.  'Our guests were, from- Gibsons, Dot  Vaughan, who says that she will definitely - try to come steady and Peggy  and^ Marvin Volen, who have been in a  couple of square dance clubs, claimed  that this was the best time they had  ever had at a square dance. Yes, in our  club. You won't find any little cliques,  or snooty square dancers, or you won't  get pushed from one spot to another,  not if the president sees- anything like  that going on. It has always been our  policy to, make sure that the square dancers ixave proper direction.* If they are-  not sure of a movement, then we stop and *  show them, this is called a walk through,  but once in a great while I hear a rumor  that someone was pushed. Well it couldY,  happen and it may have been an accident, but Tbeing president, I always ask,  very quietly over the PA system with v  the volume turned up. Then the offend-  Xj' ers can't say that they didn't hear me.  Did yb_ know that a lot of people  are singing that song, Santa Claus is  Coming to Town. And it won't be long  now! Boy, where did .last year go 4o?  I really haven't anything to show* for  1973, maybe next year will be better.  One thing about being a square dancer,,  you do have something to look forward  to that isn't going to cost you a bundle,  and i that's the next square dance. A lot  of fun too, with many friends both old  and new, from far and close by, in fact,  from all over the world.  I. have just been informed that the  sun is shining so I had best get out ahd  see what it looks like. Besides, I have to  do some fence work, so we hope you  all had a good time at the last square  dance and will be back to join us for the  next one. In the meantime, to all my  older friends and square dancers, as Red  Skelton would say: "Be seeing you, and  may God Bless."  Sechelt Notes  ���by Peggy Connor  IT WAS a pleasurable trip that Mr. and  Mrs. Charlie Longely of Gibsons took  the patients of the extended care on recently. They relived with, them, their  trip to the South Seas, as Mr. Longely  narrated and showed the slides. The oca-  casion was the birthday of Mrs.' Jessie  Gregor whose grand-daughter Dale, was  on hand to share in the celebration. Gibsons auxiliary hosted and president, Mrs.  Jean Longely along with junior volunteers  Emily Fraser and Heather White were  the hostesses. Mrs. Gir&gdr .��ras "fareserited ���  with a gorgeous orchid grown by Mrs.  Longely, along with several beautiful  floral boquets from friends and relatives.  Mr. and Mrs. Art Redman provided the  music.  Nov. 25 Rev. Godkin held church service for the patients while Mrs. Godkin  sang a few hymns with the patients joining in. Accompanying her on the piano  was Mrs. Mary Redman.  Mrs. Hilda Moore stayed with Mrs.  Harry Batchelor while visiting in Sechelt  before taking off for her winter trips.  First Mrs. Moore will take a trip to El  Paso, Texas to visit her daughter then  will carry on to Hawai. While Mrs. Moore  i contacted friends in the area others were  ' missed. To all her friends she wishes to  be remembered, planning to return to  Sechelt in the spring.  Mrs. Don Hadden is off to Sooke for  a few days visit with a dear relative,  Mrs. L. M. Woodham.  George Woodham, minus the leg that  has given him such a bad time, is well  on the way to a pretty intensive rehabilitation. With youth and determination  on his side, George will  progress  well.  _      '    1/  i  W  The Peninsula Times Page B-5  Wednesday, December 5, 1973  Owners of lost bicycles  asked to contact police  GIBSONS���Three   bicycles   have   been  found and turned into the local RCMP  detachment.

At the last show on Nov. 22 there  was a very fine program of films loaned  by the community recreation branch, to  which the new projector with its bright  clear picture and bell-like sound did  ample credit. Receiving particular approval were the film on leather carving, a  film showing the construction of the Deas  Island Tunnel from the drawing up of the  plans to its final completion, and Isle of  Eden, an unusual film about Vancouver  Island which took viewers on a tour all  over the island and included some beautiful aerial views of the west coast  A Christmas service for childreii was  held at the Church of \ His Presence on  Sunday. Following the service, Mrs. Dorothy Greene held open house at Kilally  where she entertained the Rev. and Mrs.  John Godkin and the, 20-25.��� children who  attended the service.

The northbound bus which comes by about the  same time traversed the Redrooffs Road  and had jio difficulty in negotiating its  way down the big hill, which is the  main problem on this road. ��� ^  A former resident who was visiting  old friends in the area recently was Earl  Wilson who was living in the Morrice  Hanley house about three years ago.

In many-  cases the pass mark has been SO per  cent. Sometimes a higher grade was required. It would be unusual for it to be  100 per cent, that is, perfect, although  some do attain 'perfect* grades. But certainly it tells us that we all make mistakes. No one is perfect.  However, it is interesting to - note'  God's pass mark. Jesus said: "You must  be perfect, as your heavenly Father is  perfect" The Bible further states that  "whoever keeps the whole law but fails  in one point has become guilty of all  of it." God knows that all of us have  missed the mark and fallen short'.of His  glory, but He has made it possible for.  us to meet His requirements.  He sent His Son to be 'born under  the law' and to live a life of perfect obedience. So our attention focuses on Jesus  Christ and we are brought to a realization that He - is our only hope. If we  receive Christ we are accepted by God  in Him. In other words God pronounces  us Just. This is the only way we can  achieve God's pass mark, and only from  Christ can we receive strength and power  to live a life pleasing,to God.  Fund dried up . . .

NO  FURTHER grants would  be made  until April 1, _874, firom the Community Recreatipnal Facilities. Fund, said  Jack' Radford, recreation minister.  Radford said that not only had the  original 10. million dollars in the fund  been used up hut that the government  also had had to add a further 5.5 million  dollars.  The next deadline for submission of  applications to the fund will be February  1st, 1974, said Radford, and announcements of the results of those applications will be made'April 1st, 1974.  Submission  and announcement dates  originally had been scheduled for Jan.  *"_ and Feb. 1. -  While making it clear that he was  pleased with the overwhelming response  to the fund, the minister said that he  attributed the heavy demand on the fund  thus far to a substantial backlog in community recreation facility needs throughout the province.  Radford said the demand on the fund'  was expected to slacken in the next  government fiscal year, according to a  report he received Nov. 14, from Benson  Associates, Ltd., in New Westminster, the  consulting firm commissioned by his de  partment to analyse construction trendy-  in recreation  facilities throughout- the..._.  province.  '~ -Y;- ^ ....^  More than 90 communities have received one or more ^grants vfor a wide  variety of recreation facilities thus far.Y  the minister said. This government's  particular objective, that rural communities which particularly lack, recreational  amenities be favored by the fund, has ^  certainly been realized, Radford said.  The minister estimated that more than  50 million dollars of facility construction  had-been "generated by the fund smce  the first grants were announced, August  ,1, this year. He noted that no other Canadian province had a scheme for anywhere v near the financial support given  in British Columbia to recreational facility construction, ^  Under the terms oi the fund guidelines  the government may make grants towards  recreational facilities of one-third" of the  capital cost up tp one-third of one million  dollars.        -y        ���' '--y, Y .. ��� '.-' y  The intent of the fund act is^tb provide assistance in financing community  recreational   facilities   sponsored    by^a^  municipality or non-profit cultural, ethnic  or religious group.  -mnHiiiiiiiiii.tniirairanniimnuiimmiiiii-ttun-iiimMnnHHm^  iiimimiiiiihiiuiiiimii;  * Pat iMr woesajs into  ���baa 1,000 homee (10,000  soeden) ia the** economical  ���pats.

Water rate increase cited  ������continued from page A-l  $200,000 now and get the job completed  before we have another high school burn  dqwn." j  If the project is delayed, he felt that  rising coristruction costs couldvdouble the  cost in 10 years.  "A bit by bit approach would definitely be more expensive," he said. "Before  we come up with the final proposal, we  will make sure that we have investigated  all avenues and borrow only the minimum amount, necessary."  Hoehne is chairman of council's water  committee.  Under other news, council agreed to  join Sechelt school board in its fight for  a crosswalk linking -Elphinstone Secon- >  dary School with an annex across Highway 101.  In a letter to council, school board  secretary-treasurer Jim Metzler noted that  a female student had been struck by a  car recently while crossing the highway.  " I have been directed by the board  of school trustees to request that you  consider installation of a crosswalk, more  signs, a signal light and better lighting  along the road before a fatality occurs."  . Metzler pointed out: "With the late  school shifts, early darkness and lack of  adequate lighting, it is extremely difficult -for a motorist to see persons on  the roadway, especially if it is raining."  Aid. Winston Robinson said that council tried years ago to have the highways  department install a crosswalk from Elphinstone to the Sunnycrest Motel.  "The highways department turned it  down," he said.  Aid. Ted Hume recalled that the local  RCMP detachment, also, was opposed to  a crosswalk at that location.  Mayor Wally Peterson said a crosswalk would be useless without improved  lighting.  He felt that highways department policy may have changed since the school  began using premises across from Elphinstone as an annex.  "Possibly we could approach the higjv-  , ways department and the RCMP again,"  he said.  Hume, chairman of the roads committee, was asked to look Into a possible  change of policy on the part of the highways  department.  Aid. Bill Laing was dissatisfied with  the school zone speed limit signs recently erected, by the hlgways department.  The signs were _nstalled after the  highway in front of Elphinstone was  declared a school zone, with a 20 mph.  fspecd limit.  Laln(( noted that the reduced-speed  signs measured approximately 9 in. x 0 In.,  compared to the previous 30 mph. signs,  which measured 2 ft. x3 ft., approximately.  Hoehne snld he would check with B.C,  Hydro on possible Improvements to lighting near the school.  "LlKhtlng  is  all-important,"  he  said..  NO CHRISTMAS LIGHTS  '    Gibsons will be devoid of Christmas  lighting again, this year.  At the previous council meeting,  Laing was instructed to look into^provi-  sion of reflective banners to decorate the  village streets instead of power-consttm-  ing lights. ^  But he reported to council: "There  is no way we can get anything done  in time. We've missed the boat this year."  Council agreed to offer prizes totalling  $150 for the best-decorated houses in the  village not using festive lights.  Mayor Peterson felt that local merchants might be willing to add to the  prize money.  Aldermen were not optimistic about  rapid devdopment-ii_ the -village's lower !  area.. And they practically wrote off the i  possibility  of constructing  in the  near  future  that much-touted' island  in the  inner harbor.  Peterson said that investors were holding back because of the high interest rate  charged on borrowed development money.  Also, he felt many of them were waiting for details of the new assessment  equalization bill.  "They want to know what their taxes  will be," he said.  Hume noted that only two enquiries  had been received for development in  the foreshore area presently zoned for  comprehensive development.  "And foreshore residents don't want  the island," he said.  Hoehne said tha_t council wanted to  encourage development In the foreshore  CDA (comprehensive development area)  zone to keep lower Gibsons as the focal  point of the village.  "We don't want it to become a ghost  town," he said. "We have to provide an  incentive for merchants to stay in the  area."  Peterson said that a parking study  presently underway was all-important in  encouraging development in the lower  area.  , Aldermen said that the fire hall and  bulk oil storage tanks would be moved  in the future to create an attractive and  functional core for the village.  $2;500 FOR SIDEWALK  Municipal clerk Jack Copland reported that the cost of running a concrete  sidewalk down the side of Highway 101,  past Elphinstone Secondary School, to  School Road would be approximately  $2,500.  He investigated the cost following disclosure at council's Inst meeting that the  highways department was prepared to  pay for fllling-ln the ditch fronting the  high school.  Aldermen    had previously    discussed  laying a sidewalk over ,the ditch when  it was filled, but Peterson suggested installing the sidewalk on the other side  of the highway.  "We don't have to put it on top (of  the ditch). Village planner Rob Buchan  said it could go down the opposite pde.  In a letter, Jory Holdings said it excavated the entire front yard pf a lot lithe village looking for a sewer, connection, which was shown on the village plan,  but proved to be non-existent.  Peterson said this was another black  mark against consulting engineers Dayton ,  and Knight, who prepared the plan.  This ��is the latest of many complaints  against the engineers for their supervision  of the sewer project.     ��� .   ..,  Copland said he was keeping track of  all costs assessed against council for mistakes made by Dayton and Knight.  "It's getting to be quite a list," he said.  Jory Holdings is pressing council to  pay for the cost of searching for the sewer  connection.  Hoehne noted: "Dayton and Knight  supplied the print showing the connection. They are 100 per cent responsible;"  Council turned down a request from  Powers Contracting for permissioiTfor its  employees to park on the federal wharf.  Company president Pat Powers said his  employees were willing to enter into a  pay-parking agreement with the village.  Powers operates a log-sorting ground  on Gambier Island.  "Should any of my crew be hurt on  the job, Gibsons is the closest port of  medical aid," he said. "I have, on two  occasions, had a man hurt on the job  and came to Gibsons and -found the  phone on the dock out of order due to  , someone pouring something into the coin  slot."  Peterson said that there was no way,  as yet, for council to charge for parking  on the wharf.  Hume noted that Powers had a radio  telephone on his company boat, and suggested it was normal practice to use that  for emergency calls rather than a public  telephone.  Council agreed to inform Powers that  it could not grant his firm special parking privileges.  Joan f>roctor}  ~ :        . . . Strait folk  IT TAKES more thai two aspirini and  a glass of water to m%ke you feel better when you're a mother \ and have  come down with the flu- -  - I went to bed believing I would get  some rest and soon Mve tWs whole thing  licked. That was 'where I made my first  mistake. Well, maybe not my first! Anyhow, I'd no sooner bedded down than  the troubles began.  ' Unlike famiUfes you read about in nice  books, or see on TV situation comedies,  my gang did'not. Offer' to fix the mejaLs  and look after ^Mommy. Instead of a glass  of orange juice, my eldest son brought  me a pair of pants which needed cuffs.  He figured I was just lying there with  nothing to do. There was no rush, but he'd  like them in a half hour so he could wearv  them.  Then my youngest came in to have me  read some stories and' help him make  animals put of play-doh. My daughter  appeared at the door to inform me the  cookie tins were, all empty.  The phone rang and one of the children answered. I heard them say, "no,  she's not busy, I'll call her." That was  when I got mad. I told the entire lot  to vacate my bedroom immediately and  leave me alone unless I called them. They  all retreated, shutting the door behind  them.    ..���'������  "Ah," I thought, "peace, lovely peace  arid quiet." It lastecTfor roughly two minutes which is the time it takes the kids <  to get to the family room from my room.  From then on it was bumping, screaming and laughing all to the background  accompaniment of CKLG. Interspersed  with statements like, "Oh boy are you  ever going to get it when she finds out!"  I relaxed very little.  Hearing my husband's car in the driveway, I thought at last I'd receive a little  comfort and sympathy.  "Hi," he said tossing his coat on the  bed. "What's for dinner?" Evidently he  had not even noticed I was in the bed.  "Beleed me," I said nasaly, "I could  care less. I feel rotten. I guess I've got  the flu or something."  "Nonsense," he said, "you're not sick,  it's all in" your head."  "Yes, I know, I also have a head  cold," I said dolefully.  Unmoved, he continued. "You just  think you're sick!' It's a whole psychological thing with you. You really don't want  to get up and face the housework and  the kids. Now, if you had something  stimulating to do, you wouldn't want to  be sick, so you wouldn't be lying there.  Now then, what's for dinner?"  Never having been militant, I decided  not; to hit him. Instead I plan a slow  recuperation that' will probkbly last a  good week or so. It may be a whole psychological thing with me, but it sure  beats doing the housework. And as for  the racket the kids make, I've found a  way to tune them out. I am wearing my  I son's ear-phones which I've tuned in to  my kind of music.
