Regional District directors
provisional budget of $1.5
' Regional- board directors on
December 22" approved a $1.5 million
provisional budget for 1978. The tentative
new budget, swollen "by changes in the
pr.ovmce's4^ven^eJ*s!laring procedure,
represents an uicpellse of 21.5 per cent
over last year,'.s'budget of $1.24 million.
District" Secretary-Treasurer  Anne
Pressley noted, however, that the budget
calls for only a 5 per cent increase in
local tax requisitions for existing functions — $473,848 for 1978 as compared to
$449,428 .for 1977.
\
specified area — and the increase in v%Jotal budget increase — is included in the
garbage pickups brings the total amount
to be raised through" local taxes to
$510,270, a 15.8 per cent increase.    .

The addition of two new functions for $•» municipalities and regional districts in'
1978—the Sechelt sanitary sewer system     order to maintain their spending and
and  the  Eastbourne   (Keats  Island)      borrowing powers until adoption of a
final budget. The Regional District's
final budget will be adopted in March,
af teran-accounting has-been made-of the -
district's income and expenses for 1977.
Directors Charles  Lee and Joe
Harrison voted against adoption of the
provisional   Budget  December- 22, o
arguing that they had had insufficient"
time to study the document, prepared by
the district's, finance committee.    .
Pressley told the board that a recent
change in the provincial Revenue
Sharing_Actrannounced too late for inclusion in the - budget, may provide
sufficient new revenue to enable
directors to eliminate the.5 per cent
increase ih tax requisitions for existing
functions.
That change will make available to
regional districts a grant of $100 for each
housing start. The grant previously was
extended only to municipalities. Using

waterworks budget this year for the first
time. J
At $710,000 for 1078, the water
department's budget accounts for 47per
cent of the total budget. That department
last year budgeted $547,806, which was 54
per cent- of the total 1977 Regional
District budget.
The waterworks budget is self-
-liquidating~-^-that)4si—it-iSHSuppprted-
entirely through /fees- rather than by
taxation. ^
The total budget for those functions
supported wholly or in part local taxes is
$796,766. This revenue comes from three
sources^ the projected $510,270 to be
raise,d from ' local taxes this year;-
$183,747 from provincial and others-nonlocal source's, and almost $103,000 from
surpluses accumulated by the district's
various functions, including $58,50"0
under gafbage dump maintenance and
improvement.   .—
General government services is the
largest budget category after waterworks. This- category includes items such
as administrative salaries, payments to'
regional board projects an'expenditure
of $172,500 in this category, up 8.7 per

the 1977 budget is somewhat deceptive in
that almost half the increase is the result
of another change in provincial revenue
sharing p"rocedure*. . -
- Revenue sharing funds received by
the water department have not been
budgeted as anticipated revenue - in
previous years, she said, because the
funds were allocated by the province on a
year-by-year basis and could jiot be
budgeted with any certainty^
. An amendment to provincial
legislation last year assures that the
funds will be forthcoming for. 1978. Thus/

Firstly, I  don't know why teenagers drink, and I  don't think anybody really knowS. Butif it ���  is because the teenagers are imitating the .-  adults on the peninsula, then aren't they  leading a fine example? I've seen my  share of drunk adults, either'at home or  when I'm out trying to find something to do  on a weekend. I'm not saving I disapprove;  because what they do is their business.  Secondly, I feel that the picture on the  front page that shows a student with a case  of beer drinking in the "hallways is totally  unrealistic and~demeaning;It gives people���  the-idea that students actually sit in the  hallways and drink (which they definitely '  do not dp).  thirdly, I feel that some of your information js not quite factual. For  example at Elphinstone at a dance you are  not allowed- out to '''take a drag from a  bottle you'have stashed under the fronts-  seat".-Nor'do teachers turn their backs  permitting students to do so.  Another thing -is-the-reference- to -an__  open air party on Pratt RoaoV(which I  attended). Some people may feel I am just  nit-picking but despite what your informant told you I very strongly doubt that  even if the officer at the party had started  hassling people', that 200 people or'even  two or three people would have "torn him  to shreds". This gives the readers the  impression that many of us teenagers are  a bunch of criminals!  In writing this letter I have chosen to  discuss only a few of the things that I felt  was wrongjvith your articles on teenage  drinking.

Editor, The Times 7   ��  I am writing in regard tcf'your articles  on teenage drinking in ..the December 7  issue Of the Peninsula Times.  First off I feel that your photographer  is most unfair to all of the teachers on this  peninsula. It shows a student consuming  liquor in the foyer of a school. It is obvious  to all students that this , photograph  was not of an actual instance because we  know that things like this do not occur. But  the average reader immediately interprets it as an actual photograph.  I feel the whole articled was  exaggerated., For example I have never  seen a ten or eleven-year-old child walking  along a street drinking beer. I have seen  them carrying empty beer bottles to  return them but never drinking them on  tho-fltreets,  Another thing ls students aren't  allowed to leave and enter the dance so I  don't know whore you got tho bit nbout the  bottle stashed under the front scat.,  Your articles may have convinced  many, but I don't think thoy convinced tho,  more advanced readers for what,tjhould  thoy soo on tho page following your ar��  tides but an advertisement for beer. In  your, articles you state that most parents  aren't good examples of how to treat  alcohol.

Your editorial on teenage drinking was^  ,      7 "    .very effective in bringing this subject  the attention of the public, r do think,  however, that the argument presentedyivas  somewhat second rate. You state that/'it's  distressing to find 17 "year olds with an  alcohol problem." Is It Jriot^iist as  distressing to find an adult with an alcohol  problem? You say that''an alcohol  education program in school is urgently  needed.

Despite this  knowledge teenagers continue to smoke  and will continue to drink. *   ! \Y  You sum up your argument' by^saying  that "alcohorabuse Is a danger to the  Individual and a danger to society, The  kids ought to be wised up", Thl.* gives the  impression that teenagers abuse alcohol  more tlwi adults.

Your articles sensationalized on  a  problem. It was a biased account that  seemingly wished, to sway public opinion  about local teenagers. This could be seen  by your front page's visual presentation of  the overlarge high school student sitting in  the  hallway.

These are the' tropical plants from the  deep south, and the warning is that when  they are bought one should always enquire  where they came from. Some have been  bought in all innocefice and areliffered for  sale in "good faith as die result of transactions with an ambitious but ignorant  entrepreneur who has trucked- them ,in  from Florida and"othefsub-tropical places  j where- they flourished in their natural"  habitat. -Brought thence. to these cold  norther' climes, it is essential that they be  acclimatized for a couple of weeks or more  under controlled greenhouse conditions  until they gradually get used to their new  - environment.

The  only  1978  main  replacement  "projects currently approved by the board  l_are-a one-block stretch in Sechelt, two  blocks in Langdale and a short loop in  Roberts Creek, he said?  Dixon said he; did not-^atjthis time  anticipate spending more" than the  $45,000 spent in 1977. this would leave a -  1978 surplus of .about $211,000 which  directors could either apply to other  waterworks projects or carry forward to  1979 as a surplus. The 1978 provisional  budget contains an estimated $133,000  surplus appropriated from 1977.  As mentioned above, the water  department's budget is also inflated this  year by inclusion for the first time of  fundsf rom the Gas Revenue Sharing Act  in the "amount of $124,000.  Dixon said" these revenue sharing  funds, _ Account  for  the  department's  relatively large annual surplus. "This  money isn'tbeing-wasted," he said.
