Array J 1  Water, water everywhere  A record low  winter  But not enough this spring?  Gibsons officials are worried  The weather being very much a topic of  interest this winter, I've been looking at  the 16 year records from this station to see  if any patterns are emerging. Because it's  easier to deal with comparative figures in  small numbers, I'll revert from  millimeters to inches.  The three winter months ��� November,  December, and January ��� are regularly  the wettest of the year, with an average of  22.88 inches ��� from a high in 1966-67 of  28.96 inches to this year's low of 11.37 inches. Only one other winter produced less  thah 20 inches, 1969-70 with 16.96 inches.  Both 1966 and 1967 were average years  for rainfall with 53.57 and 54.73 inches,  respectively. The average annual rainfall  is 53.48 inches, varying from a high Of 66.58  inches in 1968 to a low of 40.06 inches in  1970.  The years with less than average  rainfall - 1963, 64, 65, 69, 70, 73 and 76.  There were exceptionally wet years in  1968, 71 and 74, all registering over 60  inches.  If there is a trend developing (and ten  years isn't really long enough for  predictions) then 1977 could turn out to be  another wet year. ��� Maryanne West.

Fred  Holland warned village aldermen last  week that the lack of snowfall this winter  may lead to water shortages.  Holland, an area resident since 1915,  told the council, "I've never seen less snow  in the top area than right now."  He urged aldermen not to wait for  completion of a recently authorized  Dayton & Knight engineering study of the  village waterworks system before tying in  the new village well, at least on a temporary basis.  Holland later elaborated on his  statements. "I don't want to stick my neck  out because you can be wrong," he told the  Times. "But you have to prepare yourself.  "As far as the snowpack on Mt. Elphie,  there's not any," he said.  Holland estimated it would take three  consecutive years of unusually dry  weather to affect the village's deep wells.  The process of designing a temporary  tie-in between the new well and the water  system, letting a contract and completing  construction could be done within about  two months, he said.  Without the new water source, the  village probably would have to restrict  water use this spring, he said, and upland  areas of the village would have supply  problems.  The Dayton & Knight review of the  water system is the first such study in  Gibsons since August 1973. A January 24  letter from the firm to council suggested  that the system likely will require  hydraulic improvements owing to connection of the second well, creating a third  pressure zone, and the pending Payne  Road industrial park, which will increase  demand oh the system.  Agris Berzins, a senior engineer at  Dayton & Knight responsible for the  waterworks study, told The Times the  project will take about six to eight weeks  and has not yet begun.  He said, however, he would not an  ticipate any serious water problem in  Gibsons even with only one well operating.  Other Peninsula communities, most of  which rely primarily on surface water for  their supply, may also face shortages later  this year if the present rainfall pattern  continues.  Total rainfall at sea level for this pasC  November through January, normally the:,  wettest months of the year, is the lowest-  recorded in the 16 year history of the local; ,  reporting station. J  Only 11.37 inches was recorded here in  the last three months. The 16 year average^  for this period is 22.88 inches, with only oner  other period (1969-70) dropping below 20f  inches. Rainfall November through:  January in those years was 16.96 inches.

Volume 14b- No. 11  Wednesday, February 9,1977  Mulligan offers Gibsons a deal  Ono re-elected volunteer head  Butch Onp has been re-elected chief of  the Sechelt Volunteer Fire Department for  1977.  Joining him on the executive is Tom  Gory who takes over as the new assistant  fire chief.  Colin -Spencer, Tony Pike and Al Robins  have been appointed truck captains, and  the first lieutenant in charge of the rescue  wagon is Palle Poulsen.  Second Lieutenant Ron Sim has  responsibility for the fire hall, and this  year Ray Burton will handle safety;  Training supervisor is Bill Billingsly.  By DENNIS FITZGERALD  Bernie Mulligan, the Area F  representative to the Regional Board,  visited the Gibsons Council meeting last  week and suggested that if Gibsons could  make an attractive offer, the residents in  his area might prefer to opt out of the  proposed regional recreation plan and join  forces with Gibsons.  Mulligan and Nancy Douglas, a  resident of Area F, visited the February 1  Gibsons council meeting to discuss the  idea.  "We're asking the village to lay its  proposals for recreation clearly on the  table so we will know exaqtly what the  situation is," Mulligan said.  He asked if the proposed Gibsons  swimming pool is being considered as a  "closed pool for Gibsons (residents) or  what?"  Oops! km treatment A mt for sale  ���tm%  The Sunshine Coast Regional Board is  interested in buying land iri the Seaside  Village subdivision. But the board's  inquiry seeking a selling price has gone  unanswered.  The reason, it was discovered last  week, is that the land .can\be sold.  The board is interested in four lots in  the subdivision as a site for the new.  treatment plant for the Sechelt sewer  system. Purchase of the property was  recommended to the district by consulting  engineers Dayton and Knight.  According to assessment records, the  lots belong to Glenmont Holdings whose  prospectus to sell land in the development  was lifted last year by the B.C. Inspector  of Insurance for alleged irregularities of  the Real Estate Act.  However, Anne Pressley, regional  district administrator, says discussions  over the purchase have not been with  Glenmount Holdings but with Union  Steamships president Stan James. "We  wrote in December," she said last week,  "and asked him to name his selling price  for the land, but he hasn't given us an  answer yet."  Pressley admitted the regional district  was unaware the land could not be sold but  added that Dayton and Knight had  recommended three alternate locations  for the sewage treatment plant.  Pressley said soil tests.have not yet  been conducted on all the sites and that the  results could affect the final decision on  where to build the plant.  Senior Insurance Inspector Rudy  Lawrence was contacted in Vancouver  last week by members of the Seaside  Village Property Owners Association  when they learned of the negotiations.  Lawrence lated told the Times that with  the prospectus lifted "there is not way the  land can be sold" and "that no exception  can be made for a regional district or  municipality."  Both regional board directors and Sechelt  village aldermen have approved the  Seaside Village site.  Wounded girl released from hospital  Sechelt RCMP report that nine-year-  old Susan Taylor has been released from  St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver and is  living with her father on the I^ower  Mainland.  Susan was shot four times January 16  and her 12-year-old- brother killed. The  children's mother, Maud Ethel Taylor, has  been charged with murder and attempted  murder. She survived an apparent suicide  attempt.  There is a possibility, police say, that  the girl may lose the use of her left arm.  In other police news, a Wilson Creek  man was pronounced dead on arrival at St.  Mary's Hospital in Sechelt last week, the  victim of an apparent heart attack,  Robert Bruce l.owe, 61, was stricken  SOMEWHERE BEHIND the face  mask and all that padding is Kelvin  White, goaltendcr for the Pee Wee  lacrosse team.

Sechelt RCMP report that a beef cow  belonging to Bill Peters of Madeira Park  was stolen and slaughtered January 30.  Police later recovered parts of the animals  and are questioning suspects in the case.  Also in Pender Harbour this week Ray  Kraft, the federal fisheries officer, had his  9 ^ foot flbreglass boat stolen from  Sakinaw I>ake. After a search of the  .shoreline Kraft recovered his vessel but Its  smoll outboard motor hud disappeared.  ��� In another marine Incident a 20 foot  pleasure cruiser owned by Ken White of  North Vancouver exploded and burned  Jnnuury 31 near Daniel Point. According  to police the 'T-Time' was toally destroyed  In the accident.  Gibsons RCMP say there hns been n  recent rash of CB radio thefts from curs In  and around the village. They would like to  suggest that motorists owning such  equipment keep a separate record of the  serial numbers to ensure easy identification.

Owners of trnllblkcs nre reminded by  police that on public roads tiiese vehicles  must bo driven by a licenced driver. They  are classified ns motorcycles and must bo  properly Insured when driven off private  property. Secholt RCMP say residents  along the rond to tho Sunshine Const Arena  luive complained about the bikes  travelling along their street.  Areas D and E also might be interested  in buying into Gibsons' proposed pool and  park improvements, Mulligan said. He  stressed that he was not representing  either of those areas and was simply attempting to gather information.  However, Mulligan said, "The people  I've spoken to in Area F are very, very  keen on working with the village of Gibsons Landing on recreation."  Norm Watson, chairman of the Sunshine Coast Recreation Committee, when  informed of Mulligan's suggestion by The  Times, termed it "a very selfish approach.  It's backstabbing of the worst nature as  far as I'm concerned."  The recreation committee, a creation  of the Regional District board, is the prime  mover behind the regional recreation  funding concept.  Watson said Mulligan "apparently has  got the opinion that he's the mayor of Area  F, but he's got another think coming. Area  F is nqt a law unto itself.  ~ "He may think all he has to do is take in  a petition (for a referendum), and it wjff  be approved" by the Regional Board,  Watson said. "But it's not that easy."  Watson said the Regional Board has  expressed support for a regional  recreation referendum and he thought it  unlikely that the board would approve a  referendum such as Mulligan was  proposing for Area F.  Even if Mulligan were able, to win  board approval for and ultimate voter  passage of a referendum tying Area F to  Gibsons recreation plan, the concept could  backfire, Watson said.  "What could easily happen to Mr.  Mulligan if he were able to take Area F  into a deal with Gibsons, say for 2 mills, is  that the regional referendum could come  around 30 days later and Area F not  having the votes to defeat it would have  another two mills laid on them," he said.  Unincorporated areas would not have  the opUon of not participating in a  regionally-approved recreation plan;  Watson said.  The Village of Gibsons does have that  option and has exercised it in choosing not  to participate in any regional recreation  plan or in the nearly completed agreement  for joint community use of shcool  facilities.  During the Gibsons council mceUng  last week Alderman Jim Metzler told  Mulligan and Douglas that if, for instance,  Area F approved a recreation tax of one or  two mills, then it would be possible that the  swimming pool could be enclosed for year  round use.  It alaso might be possible to build an  adjacent community center, Metzler said.  Funds from rental of a community center  could be applied toward maintenance  costs of the pool, estimated at about  $30,000 a year, he said. A fee for use of the  pool wlso would help defrey maintenance,  costs, he said.  Area F is not densely populated  relative to Gibsons but a recreation tax  would draw substantial revenue from the  CanFor mill at Port Mellon.  Watson accused Mulligan of wanting to  "strip the assets of Port Mellon for the sole  benefit of those people in his area." .  The Gibsons pool Will be built with a  federal Neighbourhood Improvement  Program grant of $300,000 to which the  village will add an additional $100,000.  Metzler estimated cost of the pool at about  $150,000.  A soccer and rugby field with dressing  rooms at Brothers Memorial Park also  will be constructed with the NIP funds, as  will certain improvements tp Dougal Park,  mch^ing resurfacing thj|*tennis courb-  an8 purchasing new playground equipment   .  The village last week received the first  installment on the NIP grant, a check for  $15,680 which was earmarked for planning  purposes.  Council was unable to give Mulligan the  specific information he requested concerning the recreational plans,  Metzler noted, however, that the grant  requires construction to begin by July 9  and that this lends some urgency to  completion of a feasibility study for the  project. i  Mulligan said that the results of such a  feasibility study likely would give Area F  residents the information they would need  in deciding whether to supoirt Gibsons'  project* :.���:  Metzler also mentioned that the  Kensmen's Club, which has been active for  several years in attempting to get a pool in  Gibsons, offered last year to contribute  money toward a swimming pool feasibility  study. If that money were still available,  he said, it could be used to supplement the  NIP funds already received.  Clay Carby, Kinsmen's past president  and chairman of the swimming pool  committee, told The Times "about $3,000"  was available in funds collected by Kinsmen for a swimming pool. He said  disbursal of the money would have to be  approved by a vote of the general membership but it was his opinion members  probably wouldfavor giving that money to  Gibsons if requested by the village.  He said Kinsmen dropped the project  after they found that they could not raise  sufficient funds to build an enclose pool  and that maintenance costs would be  prohibitive for a pool used only during  summer months.  'Queen of the Islands'  temporary run extended  Sunshine Coast residents are going to  have to put up with the "Queen of the  Islands" until at least the middle of  February.  The ferry was originally put on the  Langdale to Horseshoe Bay run last month  to take over from the "Queen of  Tsawwassen" which Is having its annual  refit at the Dease Dry docks in Richmond.  Residents have since complained  frequently to both B.C. Ferries officials  and local politicians that the small  capacity of the "Queen of the Islands" is  causing long lineups and delays on both  sides of Howe Sound.  Some customers have missed the boat  altogether when the ship has been unable  to hold all the waiting vehicles.  "The "Queen of Tsawwassen" was due  back on Uie Sunshine Coast today  (February 9). However, the traffic  department of B.C. Ferries now says the  vessel will sail the Gulf Islands run for "at  least a week" while the "Queen of Sydney" undergoes repairs.  Bill Bouchard, "assistant traffic  manager for the B.C. Ferries Corporation,  asks that "people be patient with us."  Bouchard is also a member of the new  area ferry committee which has been  established to deal with problems and  complaints arising from the ferry service.  Local members are Bill Edney of Ken's  Lucky Dollar, former regional board  chairman Frank West, Don Pearsall of the  Concerned Citizens, Dick Procter of the  Shopper-Press and Dick Blakcman. There  will also be a representative from Powell  River on the committee.  The next meeting is scheduled for  March 1 and it is planned to have the B.C.  Ferries catering manager present. People  with complaints or suggestions about the  ferry food are asked to contact a committee member.  IT WAS A GREY and misty morning  as B.C.

Some of tt teis spiUed over  into the^papers and into public  meetings. Most recently, Copland  was instructed February 1, by the  village   council,   to   complete   a  financial disclosure report.  For his part, Copland says, "I  have no worries when it comes to  financial disclosure." Good. In that  case, a complete report will put the lie  to the rumours, and talk can resume  around more interesting topics, like  sex and the weather.  Guest Commentary  Police officers need  your understanding  By S-Sgt. P. H. CHURCH  I have been invited by the editor of this  newspaper to write an editorial as a  departing gesture, on the occasion of my  transfer from the Sechelt Detachment. It  was nice of him to extend me this courtesy,  particularly as he was kind enough not to  confine me to any particular area. Accordingly, after giving the matter some  thought, I decided that if I was going to  leave any message with you, the Sunshine  Coast reader, it should be one which might  help you better understand those chaps  who drive around in the blue and white  cars, stopping you in roadblocks and  generally making a nuisance of themselves.  To do that, there are a few things I  should first explain so that you can grasp  what it is that motivates these people.  Let's look at the typical RCMP recruit  applicant, by way of a short character  sketch.  First of all, he's between the age of 19  and 22 years, from a farm or city  somewhere in Canada. Not always, but  usually he's a little larger than average in  build, and is probably a high school  graduate, with possibly one or two years of  university under his belt. In all likelihood,  he is athletic and probably likes contact  sports, such as hockey or football, where  he can bash away happily at the other  guys. It is very unlikely that he will be a  genius, though very likely that he will have  a large measure of common sense. He will  probably have a sharp sense of humour,  leaning to the satirical. His aspirations in  joining the force at least at this stage, are  simply to be a cop.  Now, what chance does he have of  reaching his objective in the RCMP? Only  fair. In the first place, his chances of  successfully completing the application  and training period are about one in  thirteen. Having survived, he will be given  the opportunity to do police work, all right.  But^within the next five to seven years he  will also have ample opportunity to leave  field police work for an administrative  position in a headquarters posting, or to a  specialized section which will, to a varying  degree, be divorced from field duties. It's  tempting. Steady day shift, weekends and  holidays off, quick promotion, pleasant  working conditions, few irregular hours  and a minimum of decision making or  outright danger to life and limb, with the  added benefit of the same pay cheque as  Uie guy working on the street. The chances  for the easy life come and go, but if he  stays in the field for six or seven years, the  chances are good Uiat he will stay there for  the rest of his career. He doesn't stop to  analyze it, usually, but he is becoming  what is known in the trade as a "street  cop" or "detachment man."  There are many reasons why he Is  motivated to remain In the field. Despite  the long, irregular hours and shift work,  there are satisfactions which come with  the territory. Satisfaction from Uie feeling  of a job well done. When he convinces a  man not to pull the trigger of a pistol  pointed at his own head, or returns a  frightened child to his parents. When he Is  thanked on the morning after by a drunk  driver whom he stopped before lt was too  late. Or when he is able to find and convict  the culprit of a break and entry or Uicft  offence. When he Is able to convince a  husband and wife that killing each other Is  not the answer to their domestic problems.  And  when he  experiences  the  back-  slapping day to day bantering and good  fellowship of the daily detachment routine.  There are these and other reasons why he  chooses to remain in the field, In places  like Secholt and Gibsons. They are not  always easy to define but are very real to  the man doing the job.  This man, of necessity, belongs to a  club ��� the same fraternity to which all law  enforcement officers belong. He may not  stop to consider It, may ln fact belong to  service clubs and others, but he is  nevertheless a member of Uie policemen's  mm0>**0m0*^Km^*imi^******^mm*s*m**^**^m0Si*im^*mm*ma*^**+m0m*  The Peninsula^Juned-  Published Wednesday* at Scefielt   '  on H.< .'�� Sunshine Com.  by  I lie Peninsula Times  for Wcstpres Publication* Ltd.  ���( Wh��.., B.C.

He is not a popular  person in society and relies on the support  and camaraderie of his fellow policemen.  He has friends outside his profession, true,  but they are few in number and carefully  picked. He is despised by one segment of  society, treated with amused tolerance by  another and respected by yet another. But,  but the majority, the policeman is treated  with outright apathy. And so is his  profession. (Recently, a police-public  attitude survey was conducted on the  Sunshine Coast. After making allowances  for children, the percentage of the  population who were interested enough to  fill out the form and submit an opinion on  the policing of the Peninsula was about 1  per cent. That's apathy).  The causes of this are complex, but  stem mainly, I think, from a basic lack of  understanding by the general public. The  much overworked phrase, "I don't want to  get involved," which we hear so��ften from  people who have witnessed a crime, extends to their overall feeling about the  policeman's role in society. "He is paid to  protect me, so let him do it the best way he  can," seems to be the attitude. They  simply don't want to be bothered with the  details.  There are 21 policemen stationed on the  Sechelt Peninsula and, while all have at  least several of the characteristics I have  described, not too are alike. They are  human beings who v.ary in age from early  20s to late 30s, but their average age is  about  27.   They   have   different   personalities,   different   mannerisms   and  different ways of getting the job done.  They are frusfrated at times by public  apathy and by laws which tie their hand^  and  protect  the  criminal.  They   are  restricted by insufficient numbers and not  enough     time.     Unfortunately,     but  necessarily, their actions are not well  publicized, for publicity may often compromise their investigations. Because of  this, their actions are often misunderstood  by the very perople they are trying to help.  Without exception, they do have one  thing in common. Each of these 21 men is  doing the best job he can, given the circumstances under which he must work.  Each is volunteering large amounts of his  off duty time and, if married, is slowly  driving his wife to distraction in the  process.    Each    Is    a    well    trained  professional and most have a wealth of  experience policing in the Province of B.C.  Each of these men Is a tax-paying citizen  and resident of the Sunshine Coast, with his  own interests in this community. His roots  may not go deep, but he lives and works  here now. You may see him working but  you'll also see him playing hockey, or  curling, or coaching kids or fishing. He has  a stake and too few people seem to realize  this. He cares about Uie high cost of living  and gasoline. He gripes about the ferry  service and the rain. He's a human being  who is capable of making the same  mistakes you make. He's only different In  that he has been hired to keep the peace.  No policeman can do that without help and  these men are no different. They need your  interest, your help, your backing and most  of all your understanding.  ^iM��fc&  Hey, hey hey! Is this where all those beachbrushes come from?

He must be talking about another country  or another century.  Our stores and warehouses are overflowing. Logs and lumber are pUed  skyward.  Christmas layoffs In the forest industry  were caused by overproduction since there  were no strikes or shutdowns for bad  weather.  Is Wolfe serious when he calls for still  more production?  The economy is in a slump because our  paycheques won't let us buy anymore of  the stuff in the bulging stores.  Will lower pay stimulate us to spend  even more than we do now?  We are depleting our resources as fast  as we can, playing fast and loose with the  environment and diminishing prospects of  employment for our children in our rush to  dispose of our heritage. Is more production going to help any of these problems?  Capitalism doesn't pay the workers the  full value of what they produce.  Periodically it chokes on its surplus  production, when those goods can no  longer be absorbed by the worker-  consumers, who are laid off as demand-  slackens. The laid off workers stop  producing and the fit of gluttony passes.  This is what the financial writers call the  business cycle.  If I didn't think our finance minister  was living in the past, preaching solutions  to the economics of scarcity, which applied to conditions a century ago ln the  early stages of the Industrial revolution, I  would suspect his preachments are  nothing mpre than a call for workers to  enrich their employers' profits ln tho short  term, to the long term detriment of  everyone.

I have had to to deal with  anything from discrimination of getting  mortgage money since finance companies  and banks do not accept child support as  income although I have to pay income tax  on it, to exhaustion of trying to find a way  out, to bewttderment as to why such a  thing could happen in this day and age, to a  lack of faith in the laws with their slow  process to get us in our homes, to the upset  of hearing the cluldren's confusion about  why the bad .guys don't buUd our home, to  ,the total feeling of stupidjr of getting  {myself into such a mess in the first place.  At the time that I signed my life savings  away it seemed the best thing for aU  concerned and a wise investment. The  things I heard about the Village were 75  per cent in favor of getting a good home  and with it a feeling of security and  stability in our lives, in a town that I hoped  to raise the children in. I knew that I was  getting a "low-cost" house, but to me it  was our castle, a dream come true, our  own home! And that was aU we were  asking for. Now I'm in a mess that I can't  go forward or backward.  It may take years to get the house  finished at this rate or possibly not at all.  Even if it does get built I doubt very much  if I'll ever Uve in it because it is nothing  but bad memories for us. I have listened to  so many false promises that I can't get  optimistic about the article in your  January 26 Issue. It may be a red herring  or It may be the truth. To put lt very mildly  and without prejudice, the whole thing  "STINKS".  Mrs.EdleMcRann  Sechelt  In 1966 when I was spending a good deal  of time hanging around the University of  Texas ��� if not much time attending class  ��� some friends and I started a little  tabloid newspaper.  True democrats (smaU "d"), we titled  Uie paper's head worker Uie "funnel" as  opposed to the traditional "editor." This  was intended to emphasize his function  wlule symbolicaUy minimizing his  authority.  In many respects, the editor of a smaU  weekly such as this one is as much a funnel  as an editor.  Columns of copy pass beneath his  pencil, but they come to him often as  unassigned submissions, simply surfacing  and moving on to print as one individual or  another feels moved to speak.  Unlike the editors of a big daUy, he is  particularly dependant on his readers  because to a greater degree they are also  his staff, working voluntarily or, at the  most, for negligible sums relative to their  efforts.  Club secretaries report on their club  meetings**and the goalie sends in the  'hcttk^y score. (ActuaUy, Arena -Mahageir  EnuVKos sends in the hockey scores ���  and he does an exceUent job. I'm speaking  figuratively here and don't want it to  appear that I'm nailing Ernie in what  follows.)  The sinfulness of the arrangement  must bring, a blush to the brow of any  journalist of integrity.  But it works fairly weU, aU things  considered. As we keep reminding ourselves, this isn't Vancouver. And ideaUy  we aren't so much "reporting the news" as  we are searching out ways of communicating with one another. After aU,  There are only 13,000 of us in the neighbourhood.  The official "sources" are not so  remote as they are in the big city either.  They shop at the same grocery and hit the  same potholes in the road as the rest of us.  So that's a lot of what publishing a  "community" newspaper is aU about. It's  not simply smaller than a daily; it's a  different organism altogether.  It's quite often just people talking to  each other. As a consequence, like casual  By Dennis Fitzgerald  conversation, it's relatively dotted with  opinions, inconsequential information ���  and sometimes misinformation.  That's one of the tricks to this game:  keeping people on the up and up. If the  goalie (not Ernie, remember) lies about  the hockey scores, he's soon enough shown  up for Uie scoundrel he is and it's  straightaway to the penalty box for him.  On the other hand, when it comes to less  certain matters���such as politics and real  estate ��� one of our neighbours may  manage to escape blame for culpable  error with Uie excuse that he was simply  being "optimistic."  We've noticed a few such optimists in  our midst, and we funnels do the best job  we can in seeing that they're caught up.  But sometimes, to put it bluntly, we get  taken for a ride. And as often as not, we  have to walk back.  The quickest solution to this problem is  for you to yeU your head off (or at least  write a letter) if you see someone trying to  put one over on the rest of us. We're aU in  this together, you know.'  R^rt^itig'^Uus, T siisspect my purposeful vagueness may encourage you to  question every item you've lately read in  this paper. That's fine; there's too many  people who never question anything they  read.)

The Peninsula Times Page A-3  Wednesday, February 9,1977  Corner  BY GUY SYMONDS  Moss is just aoout uie nardiest  vegetable growth on this earth. It grows on  ttie frozen tundras, in tropical forests and  just about everywhere in between. Some  mosses like dry conditions, some like wet  conditions, some like an acid soil and some  flourish in soil that is alkaline. So the  handling of it presents quite a chaUenge.  To the home gardener Uie appearance  of moss in his lawn is quite a worry ��� or  should be, because it generally indicates a  basic situation that must be corrected or it  wiU go from bad to worse.  The most important thing to remember  as a first principle is that usually moss will  not appear in a lawn unless the general  growing conditions are unfavorable to  grass. This year's very mtid, dry winter,  which almost inevitably wiU be followed  by a wet speU, creates good growing  conditions for moss, particularly on the  light, generaUy poor type of sott typical in  this area. So since moss is a symptom of a  basic condition, Uie problem is simple.  Eliminate ' the particular conditions  that favour its growth and by so doing  increase those favourable to grass.  The first step is to look at the level of  fertility of the soil. In the absence of a soU  analysis the physical appearance of the  plant growth will tell its own story. If the  turf is thin with the coarser weeds  predominate and the vegetation of poor  colour, obviously Uie problem is one of  replenishing a poor soil. Getting back to  basics, it's a matter of supplying humus in  ttie form of peat moss or fine composted  material supplemented by either organic  or chemical fertilizer.  There is, however, another element  that complicates the situation. Grasses  generally like a slightly acid soil. But to  get th�� full benefit of fertilizers the use of  lime is an important factor. The answer  appears to be, as is the case so often in  gardening, don't do anything too drastic  all at once.  If lime is used it should be applied  several weeks before the use of the fertilizers. A complete commercial fertilizer  ��� that is, one of approximately equal  amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus and  potash as shown by the description on the  container ��� may be applied in the early  spring at the rate of two to three pounds  per 100 square feet. This must be watered  weU or you wiU have a burned lawn, except where the fertilizer used is a natural  organic derivative. Every month after this  first application a good nitrogenous fertilizer such as blood, nitrate of soda or  suphate of ammonia should be applied at  about the same rate until August.  The next element , to consider is  drainage. Correction of a^t^ori^t is  either too wet or too dry is pretty obvious  action. In this part of the world it is  generaUy too much water, although in  some places where ttie hardpan is quite  close to the surface and the topsoU is light  and sandy, Uie water disappears quickly  and runs off the top of the table of hardpan  underlying.  Some mosses flourish in shade and here  again the gardener has no problem, only a  decision. Move whatever is giving the  shade or at least do^some pretty .heavy  pruning to let in the sunantTbreeze.  The other factor affecting moss growth  is aeration. Besides light and water, plants  must have air available to the root system.  So at least once a year aerate your lawn  either with a special tool that can be  purchased at a garden store or by sinking  a digging fork into the lawn. The extent to  which this is done depends on the determination and physical condition of the  gardener. Just bear in mind that the roots  must have air to thrive.  Moss can be killed by chemicals of  course, but Uiis is only dealing with the  symptom. Cure depends on getting back to  basics. The bottom line is the same as the  first line ��� moss will not appear in a lawn  unless conditions are unfavorable to grass,  grass.  '���'���S.V'  '::. ���-  WHAT IS IT? It's something which  may be very important to you later  this year if you live in Gibsons. It's all  you can see above ground of the  village's new well. Gibsons public  works superintendent has recommended that-plans begin now to tie  the well into the city's water system,  or face possible shortages this spring.  Garden Club elects officers for 1977  From the pulpit  By PASTOR GERRY FOSTER  In the opening chapter of the book of  Romans in the New Testament we read  these words: "For although they knew  God, they neither glorified Him as God nor  gave thanks to Him, but their thinking  became futUe and their foolish hearts were  darkened. Although they claimed to be  wise, they became fools."  This is a brief but very accurate  description of our current culture. We are  Uving in a post-Christian era and the above  statement gives us some indication what  has happened. The "Uiey" is not merely  someone who lived i ,900 years ago, it is the-  man of 1977, ypu and me. It says "they  knew God." Yes* early in this century  people did know God and although  everyone was not a Christian there was in  our country a Christian consensus. But  tilings have changed drasticaUy. To  paraphrase the words of one great thinker  of our day, "Our country and our culture  are going down the drain".  And so instead of honouring God and  giving thanks to Him, people's thinking  became "futile." Oh, we say this is the  enlightened generation where there has  been much scientific and technological  advance, but on the other hand, a strong  humanistic philosophy has developed, and  this is "foolishness." Another statement in  this same chapter of scripture says, "They  worshipped and served created things  rather than the creator."  Also the "supression of truth" is  mentioned. Modern man, like any other  generation, is confronted with ttie external  world and man himself, i.e. his own  uniqueness. This speaks to us of a personal-infinite God. But 20th century man  has tried to bury this and refused to  believe what is clearly seen.  Does it matter that you have turned  away from God? Yes, very much so, as we  will see next week.  The Sechelt Garden Club has elected a  new slate of officers for 1977. They are:  Jack MacLeod, president; Henry Brown,  vice-president; Lou Wilson, secretary and  directors Eric Huskins, Vivian Reeves,  BiU Cormack and Nancy Read.  MoUy Almond wiU direct the social  committee, Sue Chanier will write the  buUetin and Helen Pierce wtil co-ordinate  membership. The show manager is Eric  Wilson, the librarian is Mary Benyon and  Jack MacLeod wiU look after publicity.  The Garden Club believes 1976 was one  of their more successful years as membership increased and the quaUty and  quantity of exhibits was high. Last year  the club also purchased two plaques to  commemorate Janet Allan and Frank  Reid, the founders of the Garden Club.  A Junior Garden section of the club has  also been started with several students  Winning awards.  At the March 2 meeting of the club BiU  Brandner of Burnaby wiU speak' on  "Pruning, How and When."

He is in Grade 4  at school. No  other child in his  class is the same.  No other child  anywhere is  exactly the same.  Everyone  knows that no  two fingerprints  are the same  You can't tell by looking at him, but Roger  has reading disabilities that require special  reading methods. Other children in Grade  4 at his school have special needs too.  Joanne is partially deaf. Bob is slow to  grasp math. Tony is a new Canadian who  is just learning to speak English. May has  emotional problems caused by a troubled  home environment. Barbara reads at a  Grade 9 level, although she is in Grade 4.  Her classmates show the usual range from  Grade 2 to Grade 8 reading ability. Dan  comes to school hungry every morning  from a poverty-stricken home. Faye has  an eye co-ordination problem. John has a  mathematical mind. Garry learns  very slowly.  Roger and Joanne and Bob and Tony  and May and Barbara and Dan and  Faye and John and Garry are not  peculiar. They are just examples of ihe  differences normally found among  children. It's normal for children (like  fingerprints) to be different.  Does It make sense to use the  same curriculum and the same  test for educating all these  children?  Is this what the Ministry of  Education Is planning?  The B.C. Teachers' Federation favors an  education system that challenges children  to learn reading and writing and other  skills to the best of each child's ability.  . . . but it rejects the idea of a single core  curriculum that ignores differences in .  children. A single core curriculum also  neglects many important life skills.  Because such a curriculum is designed to  fit the mythical average child, it fits almost  no one. Reading courses are as basic a  need as shoes but no one would insist on  the same ill-fitting average-sized shoe for  every child in B.C.  The B.C. Teachers' Federation supports  testing that helps to diagnose children's  needs and to find ways of helping them  learn, but it rejects province-wide tests that  ignore differences and make a mockery of  individualized learning.  To prescribe that every child must reach a  set standard regardless of mental and  physical gifts or impairments, is a gross  violation of children's rights.  Such a strategy is comparable to setting  the high jump bar at four feel and insisting  that all children jump it, knowing full well  tliat some will never make it while others  will surpass five or even six feet.  Curriculum should be developed locally.  Tests should be made locally.  To ensure that children's individuality continues to be respected:  ��� Attend local curriculum meetlnc].;.

A return match will have  been played before this is printed as  Sechelt will have journeyed to Roberts  Creek February 7.  The Welcome Beach team visited our Br.  69 January 31,-bringing some 15 players  from the Redrooffs area. Altogether three  carpets were in play and the roof was  almost lifted off the walls with cheers for  good shots and groans at narrow misses.  Of course, there was the usual recess to  partake of tea and goodies and a lot of  visiting with old and new friends. About 50  people voted it a very successful and  happy gathering.  Sechelt will pay a return call to  Welcome Beach February 21. The score  for the afternoon was Sechelt 39, Welcome  Beach 49. We hope to reverse the figures  next time.  Our Executive met February 1 and  after hearing committee reports decided  to change the monthly executive meeting  from the morning of the first Tuesday of  the month to 4 p.m. of the first Monday of  each month. Many of the executive bowl  on Mondays and this will save making two  trips on successive days.  Dave Hayward reported that both bus  trips planned for the near future were sold  out, i.e. the trip to Seton Villa February 8  and to Reno March 19. Dave also advised  that a luncheon would be served on Fourth  Thursday, February 24, starting at 12  noon. Phone Secretary Joyce Kolibus or  Social Committee Chairperson Helen  Erickson.

So get busy all  you handicrafters, gardeners and  needlewomen working on your specialty.  Carpet bowling on Mondays and dancing  Wednesdays continue as usual.  music is played in tall the stores and  restaurants, the houses are decorated with  Christmas lights and the biggest Santa  Claus you can imagine presides over the  Ala Moana shopping centre, it is still  impossible to get into the Christmas spirit  or even to realize it is Christmas. After all,  how can you feel Christmassy when the  temperature is 85, a soft Kona wind is  swaying the palm trees and the golden  beaches and tumbling surf are constantly  luring you into the water?  More than three millibn visitors (2%  million of them from Canada and the U.S.)  arrived in Hawaii during 1976. In  December there was a 21.5 increase over  the previous December and quite a  number of them obviously found their way  to the Waikiki beaches which were uncomfortably crowded. Between (Christmas  and New Year, 24,000 visitors arrived from  Japan, most of them on conducted tours  and looking extremely prosperous. I was-  particularly impressed with their handsome and intricate watches and their  expensive photographic equipment. It was  surprising to find that Hawaii, like  Canada, is bi-lingual, with English as their  first language and the second language,  surprisingly, not Hawaiian but Japanese.  Hawaii must surely be one of the most  cosmopolitan places in the world, for there  were people there of every race and every  colour ��� from the whitest blonde, through  yellows, coffee colour, to the dark brown of  the East Indian and the near-black of the  Negro.  One of the most impressive places I  visited was the state capitol, with its  fascinating symbolic architecture. The  volcanic theme is expressed in the cone-  shaped legislative chambers and in the  general architectural design of the  building. The centre court is open to sun  and rain, with th^ side of the building  curving in to form the throat of a volcano. I  was able to visit the House of Representatives, the Senate and the Executive  offices of the Governor and the Lieutenant  Governor, which are all panelled in Koa, a  beautiful native hardwood. The forty  stately pillars which surrounded the  building symbolize the palm trees, so  much a part of Hawaiian life. The nearby  Iolani Palace, America's only royal  residence, is closed for major reconstruction, but it should certainly be worth  a visit when it reopens next year.  Thanks to the excellent bus service on  Oahu, it is possible to go anywhere on the  island for 25 cents. In fact, you can board a  bus at the Ala Moana and travel all the  way around the island (a four-hour trip) in  either directions for 25 cents. If you don't  mind being extravagant and spending 50  cents on the trip, you can break your  journey at Sunset beach or one of the other  fine beaches at the northern end of the  island, where you can watch some spec  tacular surf Tiding while you eat a picnic  lunch. I would certainly recommend any  visitor to Oahu to invest $1.10 in a small  yellow book which lists many places of  interest you might otherwise overlook and  which tells you "How to get there on the  bus."  My companions on my trip were Tip  and Jessie Corson of Vancouver, but  time with were Don Ross of Redrooffs and  Richard and Lillian Birk of Southwood  Road. The Birks were spending Christmas  with their son Dennis and his wife Jane  who sailed to Hawaii in their Tahiti ketch  "Takuli" more than a year ago. Dennis  and Jane are both working in Honolulu,  bi|t in May they plan to leave for an 18  month tour of the South Pacific before  among the Halfmooners we spent some   returning to Canada.

Today in North America concern for  public opinion has become manifest.  Knowing this the large advertising  agencies play on peoples' desires to be  desireble. The result being a population  that believes one is sexier with a cigarette  in hand, more feminine by sitting pretty  like a barbie doll and more masculine by  using hair spray and drinking the right  scotch! And of course the companies roll  in the profits while the general public is  struggling to acquire that ''perfect imag<��"  by buying more liquor, clothes, cigarettes  and cosmetics.  Those who venture into an exercise  programe have to ignore all the above  mentioned stimulants and keep health and  youth as their motivators. In re-reading  the last sentence I had to laugh for it  should be obvious, the best end result is  good health; The basics of being natural,  exercising and wearing what is comfortable are hidden under TV commercials, billboards and radio and  magazine advertisements. Advertising is  a multimillion dollar business. They know  what they are doing.  So next time you are sweating from  ���packing or cycling, stop and think. We are  supposed to move, and perspiration is a  natural process'like breathing, not an  offensive fault. Movement is the key to  existence. '   '   *  Time is the second barrier mentioned.  There is more leisure time now than there  ever was, but also the average American  watches six hours of TV per day! How do  you spend your time? Are you really tired,  or is it a false fatique from too much  inactivity? The more inactive one is, the  less he feels like doing. On the other hand  the more active you become the more you  can do.  If one cares enough about something,  time can be found. It's all a matter of  priorities. Many people have commented  that after starting yoga or jogging they  have more energy and find their work day  is more enjoyable. To accommodate those  who do work and find it difficult to exercise before or after work the Fitness  Service offers lunch hour exercises to get  the blood running for the afternoon. Call  885-3611 for more details. ^  Commercialization of sports have'  brought all kinds of equipment and special  clothing onto the market. These items can  be great motivators but one doesn't have  to spend money to exercise. In truth all  that is needed is you. The cost of exercise  is nothing. Admittedly various pieces of  equipment (bicycle, hiking boots, sweat  suit) can add variety to your routine but by  no means are they necessary for its success.  So now that all doubt had been cleared  away you are ready to start your own  program. If you aren't aware of what the  Fitness Service is doing please give us a  call, all ideas on new programs are  welcome.  A DODGE to the left and a feint to the  right. "Is this how you score goals?"  ask two members of the PeeWees  lacrosse team. Registration for in  terested players is on February 19  from 10 a.m. until noon in the  Chatelech school gym.  ���Timesphoto  Lacrosse in Sechelt?  Canada's other national game,  lacrosse, has come to the Sunshine Coast.  Regular games will begin in mid-  March and practice is already under way  in the Chatelech school gym in Sechelt  each weekend.  Organizer and coach Gerry Winsten  maintains lacrosse is "neither a violent  nor a brutal sport." He has divided local  young enthusiasts into five divisions according to age.  The youngest group, the Tykes, play a  gentle version of the game involving no  body contact and using a soft ball. Tyke  players are six to eight year olds.  The other divisions include the Novices,  aged nine and 10, the PeeWees, made up of  11 and 12 year olds, the Bantams, aged 13  and 14, and the Midgets who are 15 and 16  year olds.  Three of the learns are already sponsored by local businesses and  organizations and Winsten hopes sponsors  will be found for all his divisions before  they start regular play.  Lacrosse organizers will be appearing  before the February 23 meeting of the  Sechelt council to try to persuade the  . village to build a lacrosse box in Hackett*  Park. The box, descirbed by Winsten as  *f "like a tennis court with wooden walls"  would enble Vancouver teams to play on  the Peninsula.  The Sunshine Coast Recreation  Committee has recommended that a  lacrosse box be built on District Lot 1506 in  Roberts Creek but Winsten says Sechelt  would make a much better site. The  Sunshine Coast, he says, is one of the very  few communities in the country without its  own lacrosse facilities.  If they are unable to convince Sechelt to  build them a playing field, Winsten says  his team will have to travel to the Lower  Mainland for all their games.  Over 60 boys and girls already are  taking part in the weekend practices and  those interested in joining can do so by  phoning either Gerry Winsten at 885-97.38  or Pat Cunningham at 885-2950.  A registration day will be held  February 19 from 10 a.m. until noon in the  Chatelech school gym.  Gibsons dart games  Gibsons' neighbourhood pub, the  Golden Barrel, is interested in sponsoring  dart games for local players (darters?).  People with or without experience who  are interested in joining may leave their  names at the Golden Barrel during pub  hours.  Sechelt Lanes  Commercial League  Thursday, February 3.

A  suitable property which the Commission  has in mind is part of D.L. 1623 behind  Mrs. B. McCaul's property.  Fiv��i members of the Halfmoon Bay  Recreation Commission who will be circulating the petition this week are Peggy  North, Sue Beaven, Peggy Connor, Linda  Paulhus and Jerry Lou Wickwire. Those  entitled to sign the petition are taxpayers  and their dependents over the age of 13. It  is hoped that both young and old will  support this petition and help the commission in their endeavours to secure a  playing field for our ever growing youth  population.  For the next film show on Friday,  February 11, at the Welcome Beach Hall  at 7:30 p.m., Mrs. Thea Leuchte hopes to  present a programme of films loaned by  the Israeli Embassy. It was unfortunate  that due to sickness and many people  being on holiday, there was a disappointingly poor attendance for the film  show on Japan on January 28. The  programme was of the usual high standard which we have learned to expect  from films loaned by the Japanese Consul.  There was an outstanding film about  Kyoto which was the capital of Japan from  its foundation in 793 until 1868. Its original  name "Hei-an-jo, means "city of peace  and tranquility," and it is famous for its  magnificent temples, palaces, Buddhist  monasteries and its fine university. It is a  city whose past has survived to live with  the present. Many of the old crafts have  been preserved, such as bronzes,  ceramics, tapestries and the weaving and  dyeing of fine silks.  Another fine film, "Nature's Bounty"  pictured flowers of all seasons which play  such a significant part in the Japanese  way of life. The love of flowers is instilled  in all Japanese, even to the smallest  children and flower arrangement is one of  the arts that every Japanese girl must  learn. An inspiring ending to this beautiful  film was a traditional ceremony where  children release thousands of balloons,  each bearing a package of flower seeds.  The seeds are thus scattered far and wide  to create new beauty and help make Japan  one of the most beautiful countries in the  world.  On Sunday, February 20, the Peninsula  Centre NDP will sponsor a smorgasbord  supper at the Welcome Beach Hall at 6:30  p.m. as a fund-raising project. Admission  is by ticket only, available from Ed  Nicholson of Sunshine Coast TV, Sechelt,  or you can phone any of the following  numbers for information: 885-2849, 885-  2003 or 885-9907. Supper will be followed by  a Chinese bake auction for which  donations will be gratefully accepted.  Mrs. B. McCaul who has been spending  part of the winter in Vancouver, took the  opportunity of meeting a number of old  friends. She enjoyed a visit with Mrs. Ixstn  Hanney who was a resident of Welcome  Beach for many years and who now lives  in the Florence Nightingale private  hospital. Leta was delighted to have ncw.s  of all her old friends. Another reunion, In  which your correspondent also took part,  was a luncheon at New Westminster with  PEGGY CONNOR 885-9347  three oid-tinie residents of the Bay, Dot  Robilliard, May Menzies and Pat Welsh.  Mrs. Robilliard, mother pf the late Tommy  Robilliard of Sechelt, was her old cheerful  self, making a wonderful recovery after  major surgery. Mrs. Menzies is a former  owner of the Welcome Beach property  which is now the home of the Sven  Sorensen family. She and her late  husband, Andy, were two of the pioneers  who helped build the original Welcome  Beach hallin 1958. At thattime there was a  shortage of able-bodies men in the area  that Mrs. Menzies was one of the ladies  pressed into service when it came to  putting up ttie rafters.  Mrs. Welsh was a resident of Redrooffs  from 1954 to 1962 and was Halfmoon Bay  Correspondent for the Coast News. Approaching the venerable age of 85, Pat is  just as spry, active and energetic as most  of her friends will remember her. She  works; one day a week as a volunteer at the  George Derby Hospital and she is also  attending S.F.U. for a course in literature  and journalism. She is planning a visit to  the Bay this summer to see some of her old  friends.  Two residents who have been in St.  Mary's Hospital and are still on the sick  list are Queenie Burrows and Ev Shannon.  Aline Forshaw who died suddenly of a  heart attack in Vancouver recently, was  well known on Duck Rock Beach where  she spent many holidays. She is survived  by her husband Roy and three children  Michael, Robin and Lissa.

Until  Saturday, February 12, if all goes well I  will .be with The Country Stars at the  Vancouver Hotel taking part in the  seventh annual square dance ball. Oh!  worry, with 800 square dancers on the floor  should I wear my tall shoes so that I will be  noticed, or should I wear my short shoes so  that if I should just happen to make a  mistake then nobody can find me? What  the heck, I have been looking forward to a  trip like this for about 14 years so I shall go  with the thought in mind that I will be fine  but the other 799 may be a problem (good  thinking, hey?).  Last Friday night we had three sets on  the floor, a fantastic caller and all square  dancers just a whirling and weaving to the  sounds of a good hoedown. Also they were  learning all they could so that they too  could be in top form for the B,C. Square  Dance Ball. I still say that we have the  best all round square dance club that I  know of.  Guests for the evening were Robert and  Elenor Pinchin from Shuswap Lake who in  turn are guests of the Joe Mitchell's in  Gibsons and Robert is going to check into  the square dance picture when they get  back home to Shuswap Lake and that's  how square dancing grows.,  The teen squares class, under the able  instruction of caller Harry Robertson at  the Elphinstone School, are doing very  well indeed and it shouldn't be too long  before they will be ready to take part in  other teen square dances or join in the fun  with the older clubs. So put your best foots  forward, get down to brass door knobs and  tin shingle hails and learn the figures as  fast as possible. Then you will see just how  much fun it is to travel to other clubs and  meet new friends. Then you will say, Hey!  that Squaringly Yours really knew what he  was talking about.

The   frequent hazard this month, one of the  weather a hiker pauses along a road   puddles in this picture were an in-   driest Januarys oh record.  A story for Valentine's Day  A Street-car romance ��� winter, 1930,  Lynn Vallejy.  One afternoon my mother was reading  Jessie's tea-leaves. In those days that was  a popular} from of entertainment. My  mother never charged, but she was known  to have psychic ability. If she saw  something bad in the future she would say  she had a headache and excuse herself.  Jessie (not her real name) was a spinster  going on thirty years. She worked as a  secretary in a Vancouver firm. She didn't  follow the current sytle which was bobbed  hair and short skirts.  My mother said, "Jessie, you are going  to come in contact with a tall dark man  who will change your life." Jessie answered as though she believed.  I was having a bath in the round tub in  front of the stove! When my mother told me  that she and I were getting up early to  catch the streetcar to Vancouver. For a six  year old like me this was a thrilling adventure.  Morning came and we stumbled down  the hill because the fog was so thick that  we could hardly see. At the corner of Lynn  Valley road and Frome we found a crowd  waiting. Because of the fog a lot of people  had left their cars home.  My mother said, "Rosey, the streetcar  starts at the end of the line at the canyon.  The motorman and the conductor change  ends. The motorman takes his big handle  off the transformer to use at the other end,  because that is how'he makes the car go.  He also has to let the trolley up with a rope  and pull down the other one which is now  at the front end. This trolley wheel runs  along the overhead wire bringing down the  electricity which flows through the  transformer and so to the motor which  drives the'streetcar.  "When we get down to the boulevard  (which is the widest street in the world) we  run onto a side track to let another past us  which has just come up from the ferry  dock. The conductor has a handle too with  Gibsons clerk  told to report  Sparks flew at the meeting of Gibsons'  council February 1 following approval of a  motion requiring Village Clerk Jack  Copland to file a financial disclosure  report.  Alderman Jim Metzler suggested that  Copland should file the report, but was told  by Mayor Larry Labonte, "I have already  asked him to do this."  Metzler replied he felt such instructions  would be more appropriate coming from  the council as a whole. He moved that  Copland be so instructed and council  oasscd the motion.  labonte then continued the meeting by  asking if anyone had further business to  present.  "I have nothing," Copland replied.  "Just a lot of worries," Metzler interjected.  Copland stiffened. "I liavo no worries  when lt cornea to ftnundul disclosure," he  said.  "No, 1 wasn't referring to thnt financial  thing," Metzler mumbled.  Copland indicated he would complete  the financial disclosure form this week.  which he opens and shuts the doors, and he  has a small bell and a cord with which he  signals the motorman: two to go and one to  stop. This cord runs along above the  windows and in an emergency a tug on it.  will signal the motorman to stop.  ' "The motorman has a gong on the floor  which he can tramp on. If you will listen  carefully you can hear his bell now. And  now you can see his lights and hear the  clickety-clack as he comes down the track.  Inside, the car will be lit up and you will  notice the walls have advertising posters.  The one I ljke best is the cow looking iat the  Bovril bottle with the words, 'Alas my poor  brother."*  Who should come running down the  road but the Scotch girl, Jessie. We all got  aboard the streetcar. There was standing  room only and the people held on to the  overhead straps. My mother spotted Lynn  Valley's confirmed bachelor. My mother  pushed and edged Jessie toward his seat.  It was customary for the conductor to  repeatedly urge the passengers to move on  up into the car to make room for others.  Jessie had teen riding the same car at 7  a.m. for a long time. Although the car was  a friendly place where most people talked  these two had not communicated.  Just as Jessie came to the bachelor's  seat the car lurched, the lights went out,  the motorman applied the brakes, and  Jessie landed in the bachelor's lap. The  trolley pully must have jumped the  overhead wire cutting off the electricity.  While the conductor was throwing open his  back door and rushing outside to grab the  rope and pull the pulley down onto the  overhead wire, somehow or other Jessie's  hair and comb had tangled in the button of  the man's coat.  She smelt of my mother's rose garden.  My mother used to take the rose petals and  put them in a bean pot. I think she added  alcohol. She had given Jessie some of this  magic potion for a Christmas present.  This episode broke the ice. They talked  all the way to the ferry; They seemed to  find so many things in common. They  discovered that they had both taken walks  to the same old rock quarry, with its ore  cars and tracks. They both knew the trail  which took them to the top of the quarry  where you could see the school and city.  They had both eaten the root of the wild  licorice that grows on the rocks. They had  both chewed on the tiny apples of the lone  seedling. They both owned a cat and talked  about them.  A short while later my mother had an  invitation to their wedding. She gave them  a box of Blackberry Jelly in jars, and her  blessing.  by Rosamund Simpkins  Sechelt.  t6i n' ���  Old Age  Pensioners  Guaranteed  Income  Supplement  Application forms.  _. ;C  JOHN'S  LANDSCAPING  Instant lawns or seeded  Lawn and Garden  Maintenance  Comploto concrete  and  stone  work  Tree pruning  Screened Topsoll  Bark mulch and shrubb-f^  Complete line of fencing.  886-7152  ose  Pill them out!

The award was prwented to  him Thursday, January 27, at the Olds  College in Olds, Alberta,.at a special  awards night.  Randy went highly recommended to  the college by Ted Gough, who is at  present the gardener at St. Mary's  Hospital. Ted and his wife Barbara both  worked for the College. Ted worked on the  grounds part of the year then supervised  the students as they did the practical side  of their course outside. Barbara taught a  commercial course for eleven years. To be  sent by two such well known former staff  members was a good start for Randy.  However it was Randy's own great aptitude for horticulture that convinced Ted  this was where he should go.  The college sent a thank you to Ted for -  sending them such an excellent student.  The people for whom Randy worked in  their gardens last year, have the highest  praise for his workmanship. His grandfather Ted Osborne has reason to be very  proud of him.  Macrame lessons will start February  11 for those interested in starting this  interesting craft. Sandra Pears is the  teacher. Registrations will be taken at the  Cedar Shanty or phone 885-9322 in the  evening. There will be evening and  Saturday morning classes. Cedar shanty is  in Whitaker House.

Thursday, February 10, is meeting day  for the Sechelt Auxiliary to St. Mary's  Hospital, at St. Hilda's Church Hall at 2  p.m. ,  White Cane Week  This week, February 6-12, is White  Cane Week, sponsored annuallly by the  Canadian Council of the Blind and the  Canadian National Institute for the Blind.  Mrs. D. Stockwell, CNIB chairman for  the Sechelt area, says the purpose of the  week is to call attention to those  organizations' efforts in the prevention of  blindness and in assistance to the blind.  Some 30 blind peninsula, residents  currently are receiving some form of aid  from CNIB, she said.  Joe Stevens, president of the Vancouver White Cane Club, illustrated  CNIB's work in the prevention of blindness  in explaining how trachoma was once a  serious cause of blindness among  Canadian Indians.  "CNIB discovered the condition in the  1930's," he said. Through strong recommendation to the government, a doctor  was appointed to investigate the problem.  He discovered grandmothers wore kerchiefs around their heads, wiped their  trachoma eyes with the kerchief ends and  also the faces of their little grandchildren.  Unknowingly, they passed on the germs  of trachoma which led to blindness in  hundreds of youngsters. Through this  doctor's work and the efforts of CNIB,  Stevens said, trachoma has disappeared  as a cause of blindness.  Another disease, however, continues to  cause infant blindness ��� German Measles  (Rubella). If mothers catch this disea.se  during pregnancy the babies may be born  blind, deaf or retarded. Vaccination is a  simple means of preventing the disease,  and preserving future Canadians from  many handicaps, including blindness,  Stevens said.  Wharfinger named  Doug Maclntyre of Sechelt has been  named Wharfinger for the government  dock at Porpoise Bay.  The Department of the Environment  appointment gives Maclntyre complete  administrative control over Uie Porpoise  Bay Harbour facilities.

Juvenile Hockey Team has the following  message concerning our local hockey  team. "During the. current hockey season  the Pender Harbour Juvenile Hockey  Team has been unable to be competetive  with other teams because of insufficient  ice time. The average ice time is one hour  a week and this is frequently shared with  another team or at 5:30 in the morning. If  hockey is to continue for the remainder of  the year we will have to purchase additional ice time. The cost of the reduced  minor hockey rate is $55.00 per hour.    ,<  "At the moment we are proceeding on  various fundraising ventures such as a  bottle drive and on February 11 a Benefit  Dance to raise funds. This will be at the  P.H. Community Hall at 9 p.m. Music will  be supplied by the "Spice." Tickets are $4  each and they will be available from any  member of the Hockey Team or at the  Bank of Montreal in Madeira Park; There  will be refreshments and as this is an adult  dance no one under the age of 19 years will  be admitted. This will not however be  adequate to meet our objective. We are  asking you for a donation to help us buy ice  time. Thank You."

Yvonne Sullivan was in the Harbour  and said her son Roy Bell is showing signs  of improving after his serious accident a  few weeks ago. She said everyone has been  so nice and kind. Her son Rob and Roy's  wife Nancy left Vancouver immediately  after hearing of Roy's accident to see him  in St. Mary's Hospital and they nearly  missed the ferry, except they explained  about Roy who at the time was in very  critical condition and the ferry waited a  few minutes for them and the captain  phoned the hospital to let them know they  were coming and phoned their home to say  they had made the ferry.

The grant, which would employ six  persons, is being sought for construction of  a harbour seawall "in an area to be  determined later."  In other action, the council last week  instructed Village Clerk Jack Copland tov  provide aldermen with a village financial  report by March 30 and during every  second month thereafter.  Alderman Jim Metzler, who introduced  the motion, stated that council had passed  a resolution last June requesting the  reports but had received none since.  - ���Council" 'Iftstr- -approved'^: lease  agreement at the rate of $25 per month for  use of the small log cabin owned by the  village.

They were most appreciative of this  generous financial assistance and this  sumc is to be set aside, in accordance with  their request, toward furnishings in the  new units when these are built.  It was decided to contact the Minister  of Housing and his Program Director of  Elderly Citizens' housing, through, Mr. N.  Hurley, chairman of the the building  committee, to ascertain if and when the  society could anticipate provincial  government funding in order to proceed  with additional uniUs to the present  complex. The proposed plans have once  again been sent to the department and the  directors are hoping tliat something  concrete mny soon he forthcoming. The  need Is there, but it is not possible to  proceed l)eyond the planning stage without  federal and provincial financial help.

Council instructed Copland to complete  a financial analysis of the village's  proposed marina development for forwarding to Ottawa. A January 19 letter to  Mayor Larry Labonte from the ministry of  the environment noted that the information had been requested November  9.  A letter, was received from D.A.

Council  responded  that the  by-law  cannot be enforced before Completion'���> b��'  the pound. Copland said the pound will be  finished by March 1, hopefully.  Council approved proclamations observing "Canada Week", June 25 to July 1,  and "Family Month" in May. "Canada  Week" is, a nationally-promoted observance stressing the significance of  Canadian unity.  The application of the Timber Trails  Riding Club to trail ride in the vicinity of  the Gibsons-Sechelt Airport also was  approved with the assurance riders would  not approach nearer than 2,000 feet from  the end of ..the runway and 200 feet from  either side.

As the cost of  living continues to climb you may end up  with a considerable reduction in income  when you retire, even with company  pension plan income.  Registered Retirement Savings Plans  have been created so that you can increase  your retirement funds to enjoy a better  standard of living in later years. To  encourage this sound financial planning,  the government offers substantial tax  saving benefits to RRSP plan contributors.  Save on tax  A Registered Retirement Savings Plan  is the government's way of encouraging  Canadians to save for retirement.  That's why the current tax savings are  so substantial.  The money you put into an RRSP each  year is deductible from your taxable  income. You can deduct up to 20% of your  earned income each year-fo a maximum  of $5,500* if you are not a member of a  pension plan.

You can't buy a driver's  licence or sell yours to someone else.  In the same way, the Canadian  Broadcasting League argued .before the  CRTC at the January 25 hearing, a cable  company cannot legally transfer its  licence to another company. The licence  issued by the Commission is a privilege to  use public property. It is given to a particular company under specific conditions.  When those conditions change, as when  there is a transfer of corporate control,  then the licence should revert back to the  regulatory body.  The only indication on the printed  Agenda that the application by Western  Cablevision to transfer control of their  operation to MacLean Hunter Ltd. wasn't  going to be just a routine procedure was  the number of interventions which had  been filed. Obviously it was an issue which  concerned a lot of people.  Western Cablevision Ltd. is a small,  family-owned business serving Surrey,  New Westminster, Langley, Abbotsford  and Clearbrook. It's a successful business  and has a good reputation for making its  facilities available and financing community programming on Channel 10. No  problems. Until MacLean Hunter Ltd.,  looking to expand its holdings, swoops  down from the east and makes the B.C.  company an offer so generous they cannot  refuse.  All this, of course, is standard business  procedure, nothing wrong with it: shares  and assets change hands every day,  business seeks to expand its corporate  holdings, it's the nature of the beast. The  stumbling block here is that this private  enterprise needs to hold a licence to use  public property, the air waves.  In recent years many of us have come  to realise that the old adage "bigger is  better" isn't necessarily so, particularly in  the . communications' business. The  inherent danger of allowing the power  over decision making to become centred in  too few hands is obvious. Whether we  listen to radio, TV or read the newspaper,  someone has made the decision as to the  opinions we read and hear. The more  "someone" involved in those decisions the  more diverse the information available to  us.  We know from history how few of us  can handle power, how easily it corrupts,  and that is why we set up regulatory  bodies like the CRTC to guard the public  interest. But government agencies just  like anything or anyone else have to be  Two shows  at Whitaker  Mrs. May Parsons of Redrooffs, is  currently having a showing of her paintings at Whitaker House and will be on  hand to meet you on Saturday, February  12.  From February 14 to 26, Daniel Gory of  Sechelt who was born and reared here,  truly a local artist, will have his one-man  show.

It's hard to support the public interest in the face of  strong business pressure wheq,the public  doesn't give a hoot as long as a picture  shows on the screen when they turn the  switch.  Western was quick to point out that the  CRTC has allowed these transfers in the  past, and to ask why an exception should  be made of them. But it is just this sort of  transfer, which has allowed big corporate  holdings to be accumulated such as  Premier Cablevision in Vancouver,  Rogers Telecommunications and  MacLean Hunter in Toronto, and has  alarmed groups such as the Broadcasting  League who are concerned for the public  intrest.  The Broadcasting League made no  apology for using Western as a test case,  and challenged the CRTC's authority even  to hear the application, by arguing that  nowhere in the Broadcasting Act is there  any mention of sale or transfer of licences  and that the legal definition of such an  absence of instruction is that "if the Act  doesn't say you can, then you can't."  The CRTC reserved judgement on the  challenge and went on with the hearing,  needing time to, get legal counsel of its  own. The legal issue or shortcomings of  the Act can doubtless be got around, but  what should concern you and me and  Johnny across the street is this question of  allowing the power in the communicatios  industry to become centred in a few  boardrooms and administered from there.  MacLean Hunter's president, Fred  Metcalfe, expressed a great deal of concern for the cable subscribers in Surrey  and assured the commission there would  be a 3-2 majority of local directors on the  board. I'm sure he's sincere and honestly  trying to be fair.  The question we have to ask the commission is, do they really believe Maclean  Hunter's offer to buy out Western was  made for the beneft of Western's subscribers? Of course it wasn't. It was made  for the benefit of MacLean Hunter's  shareholders (nothing wrong with that)  and .to expand.:MacLean Hunter's influence and power with those important  decisions about Pay-TV just over the  horizon.  The roughly $7 million dollar question  is whether what is good for MacLean  Hunner is good for the subscribers to  Western cablevision or good for the public  of Canada as a whole? Would you rather  have the decisions about cable TV in your  community made at the community level  by people you know, or have them in the'  position where they have to refer back to a  head office in Toronto, leaving you as a  pawn between the levels of management?  The conventional wisdom that such a  venture needs risk capital provided by  private enterprise is being challenged by  co-operatives, some of which have been  functioning satisfactorily for some time.  However, if the conventional wisdom is  still true, and what's good for MacLean  Humtcr is good for the rest of the country,  they still have little to worry about. The  change in procedure would allow for  competitive bids prior to any transfer of  control. If the conventional wisdom is true,  they should be able at that time to make a  better case for the public Interest than any  community group or private investor.  Seems fair, doesn't it?  \  Date Pad  Fob.   11 Sunshlno  Coast  Community   Resourco   Socloty   General  Mooting, Socholt Clem. School opon orea, 7:30 pm    Evoryono Wolcomo.

The film is  based on the ballad by Bobbie Gentry.  'Ode to Billy Joe7 opens  Thursday at the Twilight  "Ode to Billy Joe," a motion picture of  young love on the Mississippi Delta in  which the long-held secrets of the  Tallahatchie Bridge are finally laid bare,  will play February 10-12 at the Twilight  Theatre, Gibsons.  The.story of Billy Joe McAllister, the  boy who jumped off the Tallahatchie  Bridge, was first told in the song hit by  Bobbie Gentry nine years ago. The continuing mystery of the muddy waters that  brought an end to Billy Joe's romance with  Bobbie Lee Hartley is now illuminated in a  touching and astonishing motion picture.  Permission to film the narrative behind  her haunting ballad was granted by Miss  Gentry to Max Baer, the young- filmmaker who took a Hollywoodcrew to the  heart of the Delta to bring life to a legend  on the spot where it happened. The film is  a Warner Bros, release.  The young stars of the picture .are  Robby Benson and Glynnis O'Connor who  play the teenagers whose turbulent love  affair is a source of tenderness and humor  until the disaster at the Tallahatchie.  Featured performers include Sandy  McPeak and Joan Hotchkis. The script is  by Herman Raucher, author of the  suuccessful film, "Summer of '42."  Miss Gentry, who was won fame as a  nightclub and TV entertainer as well as a  recording artist, has re-recorded "Ode To  Billy Joe" for the sound track of the film.  The film is rated for mature audiences  and carries the warning of occasional  nudity and coarse language.  Following Billy Joe at the Twilight is  "The Trials of Oscar Wilde." It opens  Sunday, February 13, and runs through  Tuesday. The film is rated for mature  audiences.

Twenty-  one visiting rinks have entered, and the  weekend of February 18-20 looks like a  very active one for all members of the  local club. It is hoped that those who are  hot curling will volunteer their services in  other areas to help make it a successful  bonspiel. Prizes with a total value of $1,000  will be awarded after the final draws on  Sunday.  The ladies bonspiel scheduled for  February 14-16 appears to be in trouble.  Entries have been coming in very slowly,  and at last report the organizers were  afraid they wouldn't be able to get it off the  ground.  Paul Gauci won the usual draw at the  club last week and very kindly turned his  prize back to be drawn again.Thanks for  the club spirit, Paul!  The Krintilla and Pajak rinks travelled  to Hope last weekend to bonspiel and  finished one game away from the prizes.  We are very grateful to these ambassadors who travel around the province  and help to put the Gibsons Winter Club on  the map. \  Fans of Greek singing star Nana  Mouskouri have a date with CBC radio this  Sunday at 5:05 p.m. with Special Occasion  presents a two hour concert recorded last  April in Toronto's Massey Hall. Mu^ic has  been important in Mouskouri's life since  she was very young. Before die could read  or write her parents gave her singing and  piano lessons and later enrolled her at the  Conservatoire Hellenique in Athens,  where she studied for eight years with her  sights set on an operatic career.  , Then she heard jazz for the first time.  "After that," she recalls, "I listened to,  every jazz program I could find. In fact, I  learned to sing jazz in English before I did  in Greek. I continued my studies for my  parents' sake, but I knew where I was  going. One day I took part in a jazz contest  and won. When my teacher, Professor  George Dzouenas heard about it, he went  into a rage and had me expelled from The  conservatory. I had no option but to  continue singing jazz, and managed to get  a full time job with an orchestra. That's  how it all started."  In 1959 she won first price in a festival  in Athens and rose quickly to stardom in  Greece. Later she moved to Paris to  continue her career and in 1963 appeared  with Harry Belafonte on a TV show there.  He was so impressed he signed her up and  she made many North American tours  with him. Encouraged by the success she  began touring on her own, drawing rave  reviews.  Popularity hasn't changed her. She still  scorns the trappings of glamour, comes on  stage in a simple gown and sings from the  heart, tauntingly or passionately,  creating a close bond with her audience.  Backed by seven musicians, the  Athenians, Miss Mouskouri sings in  English, Greek, French and Spanish,  including an aria from Bellini's Norma  and finishes with a moving a cappella  interpretation of Amazing Grace.  Back in Athens, Professor Dzouenas  who was so disgusted with Mouskouri's  interest in jazz, now has a singing school of  his own which includes jazz and folksongs  in the curriculum and, yes, you've right, a  picture of Nana Mouskouri at the entrance!

In 1976, 11,199 hours of work were  donated by volunteers and the meeting  was introduced to the 1977 slate of officers.  Christine Ward of Sechelt is the new  president, Billie Steele is vice-president,  Geri Smith was elected treasurer, Pauline  Lamb is secretary and publicity will be  handled by Joan Rigby.  At a meeting on February 2, 25  members of the Gibsons auxiliary met at  the Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit.  The next quilting session will be held  February 23 at Marge Langdale's home.  On February 28 the auxiliary will host a  party for extended care patients at St.  Mary's and an Aloha luncheon will be held  either the 13 or 27 of May.  The Halfmoon Bay auxiliary will have  a St. Patrick's Day tea on March 17 at 4  p.m. in Welcome Beach hall on Redrooffs  road.  BOOK LOOK  by AAurrie Redman  Garden Corner  Doubleda'y's Heinman-Octopus division  has come up with an excellent idea for  those who are building a home library. For  a nominal sum, you can buy these finely  bound, gold embossed volumes of the  collected works of many of the best  authors of the twentieth century. Orwell,  Michener, Steinbeck and Maugham are  but a few of the writers included.  The one I looked at was D.H. Lawrence.  Seven of his best sellers are printed in  their complete and unabridged versions.  "Lady Chatterley's Ix>ver" is one of his  most famous and notorious novels. As  well, it is quite representative of his style.  I,awrence, born a miner's son, struggled  to get his education and become aware  of the falseness of city society, used his  abhorrence of its artificial values as the  basis of his themes.  The novel became the subject of great  controversy, and legal trials were held ln  which censorship boards fought over the  book's publication. After two revisions and  much notoriety, the novel was finally  published iri the unexpurgatcd form in the  sixties. By toduy's standards of propriety  (or lack of it), the novel seems normally  romantic arid even prim. Superficially, it  has the plot of the usual gothic novel, but  the realization that Uiwrcncc wrote well  ahead of bis time (he died in 1930) causes  one to look deeper.  l/onl and I July Chatterley live in  dreary Wragby Hall. He is a paralytic,  able only to have an intellectual  relationship with his wife. .She wants a  child and seeks out the surly gamekeeper  to effect the addition. In order to ensure  the safety of the lovers' tryst on the  Wrugby grounds, Lady Chatterley hires a  commoner from the local village to care  for the laird.  Knob character enjoys sensitive  tivulmcnl by Lawrence. In the woodsy  sotting where the lovers m<.ct, Uielr  arrangement seems correct but when the  woril gets out, a scandal erupts. The lady  and the gamekeeper run off and face the  realities of living ou labourer's pay while  the laird takes up a kinky relationship with  his nurse at the hall.  In 1-awreitcn'N.vh.w, not even love can  bridge tlio class gap and society only  further., the nepurutlon by allowing  disapproval of anyone suspect of crossing  over from either strain. Uiwrenoe's own  affair with the wealthy Frieda von  Hlohtofen who ran away from her husband  and family to travel about Kurope with  lilin, parallels the Ideas in many of bin  novels.  Judging by the news that comes to us  from all the media, the next 12 months  may see the produce shelves in the  supermarkets denuded of the luscious  fruits and vegetables to which we have to  quickly become accustomed.  Yet many of us remember the time we  did not think that our continued existence  depended on having lettuce, tomatoes,  asparagus and anything else you care to  name whenever you wanted them, no  matter what the time of year. We have  been told, and we now believe, that good  health is completely dependent on our  drinking orange juice. Yet there is no  evidence to show that the natives who  inhabit the land of the orange ever enjoyed  longer life than those who never heard of  the fruit.  Which is another way of saying that  maybe part of our. dissatisfaction with our  life is not the high cost of living but the cost  of high living. We may have to relearn the  lesson that you cannot eat dollars and that  life springs from the few inches of soil that  stand between us and annihilation.  This Sunshine Coast may not provide  the luxuries of the tropics, but it will  provide wholesome food if we will take the  trouble to do the work. So, if you possibly  can do so, grow a garden, and not only  reap the fruits of the good earth but enjoy  ttie privileges of taking part in the eternal  miracle of the life that unfailingly springs  fron that earth.  Work���manual work ��� is not enough.  The intelligence to apply knowledge is  necessary so here is another recommendation. Study the advice available in  many good garden books. There is no  excuse for ignorance. The earth is resting.  There are a few, but only, a few weeks  before she stirs once more and fills Our  part of creation with new life. If some of  that new life is to sustain you, now is the  time to prepare."  Remember that if something is taken  out of the soil by the gardener, it must be  replaced if more is to be produced. So  study this mirable we know as soil. For  example, if you have put your garden into  fall rye for the winter and will soon be  digging it in, that crop has used up some of  the earth's goodness ��� notably in this  case, nitrogen. If you have been cutting  kale for your winter greens, that too has  presented you with food miraculously  converted through the soil. In the soil is the  secret of life so surely it is worth study.  Trouble is, of course, that we are so used to  it that we scarcely put any value on it until  one day its properties are taken away  from us. Remember the worldwide effects  of the Saskatchewan dust-bowl?  In a continuing effort to build up a very  poor piece of garden, a compost heap was  put together in the fall and this week it was  turned over and treated with one of the  many rotting agents available. Not the  best time to do this as this agent works  best and quickly in the warm weather. But  it was good to see how the earthworms,  those most efficient of farm machinery,  has appeared and seem fat and happy.  That compost will return a hundredfold  the work expended on its fabrication.  But as the soil analysis disclosed  serious lack of phosphorus and potash  these elements will have to be supplied by  chemicals. There's a lot of nonsense talked  about artificial fertilizers. No matter what  the original, plant food in accepable form  must be supplied and the chief ingredients  are nitrogen, phosphorus and potash.  Repeat: no matter where they originate  that is the end result.  What goes wrong is their ill-considered  use to the exclusion of the other soil  requirements, humus and the trace  elements needed to promote the health of  the growing medium. That is the why of  By GUY SYMONDS  the compost heap and of such sou conditioners as peat moss, which retain the  moisture, allow proper drainage and  encourage bacterial action. The proper  use of inorganic fertilizers is good gardening and farming; their exclusive use  however is sure disaster. "  Again, now is the time, before the  pressure of the spring overtakes us; to  learn how to get the best out of what is  entrusted to us. Do this and much of the  menace of the empty produce shelves will  disappear.  U.S. fuel crisis  impeding periodicals  If you're not receiving your Wall Street  Journal or Newsweek subscription, it's  because no one is.  Vancouver postal officials report that  because of energy restrictions and the  extreme weather conditions in the  eastern United States, magazines,  newspapers and other periodicals  published in that area simply are not  arriving in Canada.  Trucks, which normally transport  second class mail, are prohibited from  traveling on roads and highways which  cross the New York-Ontario border. International traffic at other eastern border  crossing points also is considerably  reduced.  Diversion of fuels from commercial  and industrial uses to residential consumption has caused the temporary  closing of some publishing houses, including a major one in Dayton, Ohio.  Specific publications reported to be  affected include The Wall Street Journal,  BusinessWeek, Newsweek, McCall's and  Photoplay. In some cases, publishers are  indicationg that editions will be dropped  entirely if , the situation is not resolved  soon.  Minibus off the road  The Community Resources minibus  has been off the road for the last 10 days as  driver John Bunyan recovers from an  illness.  Maureen Kirby of the Minibus office  would like to thank all the Peninsula  residents who helped to take patients for  their medical treatments and doctors  appointments. She hopes the bus will be  running again this week, but if anyone  would like to donate some of his spare time  to the Volunteer Bureau he may do so by  phoning Betty Wray at 885-3821.  Christian Science  "Search the Scriptures" (John 5, 39).  "Seek and ye shall find" (Matt. 7, 7).  The Bible is our guide to daily living. Its  beauty of language surpasses all other  books and its guidance surpasses all other  help.  Mary Baker Eddy writes, "The Bibte is  the learned man's masterpiece, the  ignorant man's dictionary, the wise man's  directory." "Miscellaneous Writings,"  Pg. 363.  In the money  This week's $100 winner of the Lion's  "400 Club" draw is T.R. Godfrey of Gibsons. His ticket was drawn by Hilda  Gerard in the Gibsons' branch of the Bank  of Montreal.
