Volume 14 - No. 12  Wednesday, February 16j 1977  Peninsula businesses���just looking for a home  The Regional District planning committee bumped repeatedly against an old  disagreement in its February 10 meeting:  where should commercial and industrial  businesses be allowed to operate and how  should land be allotted for those purposes.  Director-Barry Pearson spoke to one  side of the question in deploring the lack of  district-zoned land for commercial and  industrial uses. "We're seven or eight  years behind the time here as far as I'm  concerned," Pearson said.  Director Peter Hoemberg responded  that the board was moving ahead through  its several vicinity plans.' The central  concern, he said, is to prevent the sort of  commercial strip development which has  become typical along major highways  throughout North Afromxp.  "If you are gbirig to l&g^a uu&He^s  Mrs. B.P. Mottishaw concerning four  Sechelt area businesses allegedly  operating in violation of the regional  zoning by-law.  Mrs. Moittishaw submitted a petition  signed by several Sechelt businesses  protesting the violations. She said the  violators represented unfair competition  in that by ignoring the by-law they were  able to do business without the attendant  fees and costs involved in operating inside  the municipality.  After hearing regional planner Paul  Morite's report of his investigation into  two of the alleged violations, Hoemberg  moved that the by-law beenforced and the  offenders required to stop doiiig business  at their present locations.  "We weaken our own by^iws when we  motion, but ran into the same hassle on the  next agenda item.       ..'Pr-  The items was an application by C.J.  Salahubto re-zone a Davis Bay residential  lot to Commercial 2. Salahub requested  the rezoning for the property, which fronts  on Highway 101, in order to open a sports  and marine parts store.  The same application provoked a  lengthy debate at the committee's  January 19 meeting and threatened to do It  again in this meeting.  Salahub offered to limit his building  height to below 16 feet, as opposed to the 35  foot height limit allowable under  residential zoning. He also noted in his  application, represented by Mr. C.E.  Scales, that he had polled residents In the  area of the proposed store and found only  couki be altered by the district board at a  later time and would not provwe the  necessary security for the investment he  planned to.make in the land. He also expressed skepticism that he could as  readily secure^nds without the industrial  zoning. -^  Hoemberg replied that Haleta was  mistaken in his understanding of a land  use contract. He said such an agreement  could not be altered without the consent of  both parties. He alsb^said the contract  could be written for as long a period as was  necessary.  "We are all in agreement 1 think about  allowing your use of the land," Hoemberg  Jsaid. "The only reason we want a land fise  contract is to make sure the neighboring  iarid is $bt affected, to protect Twin  with the local Canada Manpower office.  But, Smith says with a short Laugh, "that's  a mere formality. Manpower has nothing  to offer them."  This area has one of the highest  unemployment rates in British Columbia.  The official estimate, based on Manpower  applications, is somewhat over 10 per cent.  But since not every unemployed person  files with Manpower, the true rate is  higher. .  Jack Ross, manager of Manpower's  Sechelt office, estimates it may be 15 per  cent., Don Lockstead, New Democrat MLA  for Mackenzie, recently said it has between 15 and 18 per cent across the riding.  Nationally, the seasonally adjusted  unemployment rate for January was 7.5  per cent, according to Statistics Canada.  Unemployment in British Columbia was  reported at 8.8 per cent.  So what is the government doing to help  this area's , disproportionately high  number of jobless? Not much, sMy  representatives of area social agencies,  who claim the Sunshine Coast needs more  service from Manpower.  Canada Manpower officials in Vancouver maintain the current service here  is adequate.  The dispute, Smith says, revolves  around a difference in philosophies.  "Canada Manpower says, 'Look there's  no industry in your area and therefore no  one to hire people,'" says Smith. "We say,  'Hold on, there's people put of work here,  and it's your job to encourage employers  to create jobs.'  "We look at itfrojh- the worker's point  of view. CMC often appears interested in  the employer. Frankly, I wouldn't miss the  Manpower service if it disappeared  tomorrow."  Smith is chairwomen of the Interagency Liaison Committee, an informal  group consisting of representatives from  about a dozen social service agencies.  Since 1975 this group has attempted  through a variety of means to get im  proved   Manpower   service   for   local  residents.  "We have begged, pleaded, gone down  on our knees, always tried the polite approach,',' says Smith. "And it's been so  frustrating. We seem to be in a permanent  stall."  In fact, the Canada Manpower office in  Sechelt has slowly improved its service.  Until October 1975 the Powell River CMC  handled the office. It was generally  acknowledged to be a token effort with a  counselor coming in one day every two  weeks. The infrequency of the service  caused delays which discouraged both the  out-of-work and the employer. Then the  operation of the office was taken over by  CMC's North Vancouver centre and Jack  Ross was hired as the Sechelt manager.  Under his supervision the local Manpower office is now open two days a week.  On Tuesdays, however, Ross is  unavailable for counseling and the  receptionist handles only inquiries. On  Thursdays Ross is in the office from 10:30 '  a.m. until 4:30 p.m. to interview job-  hunters. Local employers fare a little  better with a five day a week phone access  to the CMC manager.  Members of the Interagency group and  Ross both say local people are not making  nearly enough use of Manpower's  operations. The Interagency people blame  this on the inefficiency of the service. Ross  blames the negative image Manpower  acquired when his office was a satellite of  the Powell River CMC.  It's a Catch-22 situation, says Smith,  who is careful hot to personally blame  Ross for what she calls fee "chaos caused  by the Manpower bureaucracy."  "Manpower," she says, "has alienated  local employers by not meeting any of  their expectations. Employers in a nutshell, don't feel they can do any better by  going to Canada Manpower because  people out of work never bother  registering there anyway.

Secret Cover Marina developers apparently have modified and trimmed their  plans to the satisfaction of the Regional  District.  The district planning committee last  Thursday found no fault with the  developer's newly amended proposal,  which cuts the slated number of houses  from 38 to 29. The committee instructed  the planning staff to make the appropriate  amendments to the proposed land use  contract and to present the contract to the  next Regional Board meeting.  The committee twice previously had  rejected Secret Cove proposals for a 38-  unit development. Those rejections were  based on environmental and aesthetic  considerations and on the developer's  Inability to satisfactorily demonstrate that  the planned water system offered sufficient fire protection.  At Thursday's meeting the developers  also presented well test results und  described a planned 00,000 gallon swimming pool, which appeared to convince the  committee of the adequacy of fire  protection.  Current residents of the .Secret Cove  area, however, continued to object to the  marina development. Spokesman Robert  NI'X'KET COVE resident Hobcrt Carl  hears Hegionul District planning  committee memliers refuse his  request for another pul)lic*hearlng <"��.  the development. Timesphoto  Carl urged the committee to schedule  another public hearing on the matter.  But the committee declined to do so  after being told that, in the opinion of their  solicitor, another hearing is not required.  Director Peter Hoemberg told Carl that  the developer's amended proposal is  "creating less of an impact than the  original proposal." Another hearing would  simply be going over the same ground as  that covered in the meeting held last  November and would serve no useful  purpose, ho said.  Director Ed Johnson accused the objecting residents of "being opposed to any  development at all.  "You figure you've got a nice little  area, and you want to keep it all to yourselves," he told Carl.  Carl responded that residents were  worried that the Secret Cove Marina  "will just be a toehold" for other, similar  .subdivisions.  Hoemberg assured Carl tliat the  Regional Board was firmly committed to  restricting such developments in that area  to the northeast ashore of Secret Cove and  would not permit a string of marinu  subdivisions to be built.  He also replied to Carl's charge, that  the development, even in its modified  form, would destory the area. "We arc  requiring them to replant the area after  construction," he said. "And if that  requires a great deal of effort, a great deal  of money, that's the developer's problem.  We will see that It is done.''  Decreasing Uie number of homes from  38 to 21) also widens the space between  buildings from about 10 feet to 30 or 35 feet  and this will allow developers to leave  trees standing, which would not have lieen  feasible with the higher density, Hoemberg said.  "But It still Involves destruction of two  hillsides," Carl said.  "Destruction Is an unfortunate word."  replied planning committee chairman  Jack Paterson. "Perhaps 'rearrangement' Is n better word."  I (chuffed    and    uumollifled,    Carl's  delegation left alter telling the committee  they would consult their solicitor con  cernlng the committee's apparent decision  not to schedule .mother hearing.  The committee Instructed the staff to  double-check with their own solicitor to  Hoemberg said Salahub's offer to limit  the building's height amounted to a  "trade-off", which Hoemberg found  unacceptable. He also expressed concern  that once rezoned, the lot might be put to  less desirable commercial purposed by a  later owern.  The committee voted 4-3 against the  recommendation for rezoning.  Salahub responded angrily, "I feel  there's too much idealism in this area. If  anyone wants to buy this property it's for  .sale now."  The next item on the agenda moved the  committee farther around the coast but  left them wandering in the same woods.  This item was an application by Archie  Haleta for rezoning from Agricultural 4 to  v^G^ks.,  Industrial 4, a l3/4 acre  lot which en-  south of Port  compasses Twin ('reeks,  Mellon.  Haleta applied for the rezoning in order  to build a chipper mill for his log salvage  business.  Director Jim Metzler suggested that in  order to protect the area along Twin  Creeks, the committee might consider a  land use contract rather than rezoning.  Restrictions on log storage and other  operations adjacent to the creeks could be  written into such a contract, Metzler said,  whereas rezoning for industrial use would  afford no such protection.  Haleta objected .strenuously by the  idea, saying he felt that a land use contract  A contract stipulation about use <Jf the-  land bordering the creeks might be the  only effective difference between,^ land  use contract and industrial zoning in this  instance, Hoemberg said*  But Haleta denied there was any  necessity to protect the creeks. "I have  lived there for 15 years," he said. "They're  not creeks at all. They're really rain  runoffs. In the 15 years Vve been there,  I've never seen one fish in .the north creek  and maybe I've seen five or six in the south  creek.  "I'm prepared to collect 15,000 to 18,000  deadheads this year. Isn't the economic  benefit of that more important than six  fish?"  Director Bernie Mulligan jumped into  the discussion, asking, "Are we going to  set aside areas for growth or continue to be  stuck with these land use contracts?  "We've got to quit falling back on land  use contracts" he said.  Planning committee chairman Jack  Paterson got the matter shelved when he  mentioned Environment Canada's  possible interest in protection of the creeks  and .suggested that the federal, ministry  might require protective provisions be  included in any rezoning of the area. Such  provisions would likely satisfy the committee's concern for the creeks, he said.  The committee agreed to postpone the  matter pending a ruling from Environment Canada.  C.J. SALAHUB is tightlipped as he  leaves the Regional District planning  committee's February 10 meeting.  The     committee     turned     down  Familiar faces appearing  in Bowen Island dispute  confirm   that  necessary.  a   new    hearing   is   not  By KEKUA IAXJKHAHT  Two of the principle figures in .Sechelt's  financially botched Seaside Village are  deep in the middle of a new land dispute on  Bowen Island.  On Friday the BC cabinet ordered a  halt to tree clearing operations on an  Island development site owned by Union  Steamships under Its president Stan  James. James hns a major financial investment in Seaside Village and under the  terms of a management contract with  (ileninont Holdings, another company  involved In that development, will gala  title to the unsold land when the mortgage  on ll is paid off.  Also on Friday, Bud (inlrns, .lames'  project manager on his Bowen Island site,  was Involved In n scuffle with demonstrators when they attempted lo halt  bulldozers working on the land.

The Bowen Island dispute involves a  :t(HI acre .subdivision  site  where .lames  Intends to build 2,000 hou^uinits und un  18 hole golf course^^^SR  Opponents of the plun sStf the scheme  contravenes the proposed community plan  for the Islnnd and could have a serious  environmental impact.  Tin. government's cease and desist  order came after an emergency session of  the Island's Trust asked Environment  Minister Jim Nellson to intervene In the  dispute.  After the cabinet order was Issued,  Nellson said the government was  responding to "concern.", offered by the  |H>ople on the Inland."  \lle added the stop work order will  remain lu effect until It is determined  whether the project does in fact luirm the  Island's environment.  laiist April, at the height of the .Seaside  Villnge controversy, it was announced that  Union Steamships would sell three and a  ludf acres of Its Bowen lalund property to  cover some of the debts owed by In-  lei facial Designs. According to Cairns his  company had previously been re financed  with a i-MO.OOO loan from Union .Steamships.  A legal argument, however, between  .lames and (ileninont Biddings has stalled  the1 proposed lloweu Island sale,  Salahub's application to have his  Davis Bay property rezoned to permit  a business on the site.  ��� Timesphoto  Experimental college  plan ok'd by trustees  Local residents who have always  wanted to attend college but didn't like the  thought of going to school in Vancouver  will have their problem partially( .solved  this fall when two community college  courses are offered on the Sunshine Coast.  I,a.st week the Sechelt school trustees  approved a $3,000 subsidy to enable the  Centre of Continuing Education to bring  Capilano College courses to the Peninsula  on a trial basis.  The decision split the school board  members, with some maintaining post-  secondary instruction .should not be  promoted in a year of budgetary restraint.  Karin Hoemberg, local Director of  Continuing Education told the February 10  Pender Harbour meeting that "the need  for college education on the Sechelt  Penslnula Is practically unknown ond can  only be assessed If courses are offered on  an experimental basis over a period of  time. She added that the results of a recent  local survey on post-secondary education  wore rendered useless when two of the  collection boxes disappeared. This, she  said, made any valid conclusions Impossible.  However, Moeml>crg said, the two  courses which appear to Im. the most in  demand and which would likely be the first  two offered are English KM) and  Psychology 100.  Hoemberg told the bonrd tliat In a  January 28 letter, Derek iSmlt, Dean of  Community Education at Capilano stated,  "Uie college bus received approval from  the Ministry of Education to provide the  .Sechelt .school district with college; credit  courses on A total cost-recovery buuiu."  Siult defined a "cost-recovery  arrange.nciil" ns meaning "Ihe school  district would, in effect, purchase the  presentation of courses from Uie college,  the total cost to include preparation and  design, instruction and administration  costs incurred.  Capilano was concerned, he continued,  that tile courses are "neither in fact, no  .perceived lo l>e, subsidized in any way hy  the school districts of North and West  Vancouver and Howe Sound." Capilano  College is located in the North Vancouver  school district.  Hoemberg noted that Smit was "very  reluctant" to present any concrete cost  figures for the courses "but it must be  expected that a college course with  transfer credit costs approximately $2,500  which involves about $:.5() in mileage and  ferry fares."  The trustees were told by Hoemberg  that each class would probably attract 10  to 18 people and "a subsidy of $1,000 to  $1,500 per course would be necessary to  keep student tuition fees lielow $100 |>er  person.  The ultimate solution to post secondary  education on the Peninsulu, stated  Hoemberg, "lies In a system not yet  developed, the distance learning program.  The pupil is supplied with the material and  the instructor visits regularly. That  system Is five years away."  It would lie desirable, continued  Hocmhcrg, to employ local instructors for  the two Capilano courses as this would  reduce administrative costs and help the  local unemployment rate. However, she  said, "Capilano only seems prepared to  accept local instructors If they cannot  supply someone from their own staff."  The details of the courses and their  administration have still to he discussed In  detail, added Hoemberg, hut she asked the  Ixiard members to approve tin- instruction  on a trial basis.  .Sechelt representative Maureen  Clayton told the other trustees she was not  prepared "to sup|Mirt a subsidized  program this year." She also said she  would like to see a detailed survey (lone on  post-secondary needs on the Sunshine  Coast. "As far as I'm concerned", she  concluded, "this is a year of restraint,"  But Area 'A' trustee Peter Prescesky,  111 moving that the school district provide  the subsidy, argued "thai it is an inex  ���pensive way to give (college courses) a  try." If it doesn't work oul, he said Ihe  hoard could always refuse a further  subsidy next year.  The motion was approved I-',' hy Ihe  hoard members.  > t J  The PENiNsuLA^taea  EDITORIALS  Don Morberg, Managing Editor  "A free press is the unsleeping guardian of  every  other right  thai free  men  prize."  ��� Winston Churchill  Something wrong  Wait a minute, there's something  wrong here.  Last fall the Ministry of Education  came out with its new and in>  mediately controversial idea of a core \  curriculum for all British Columbia  school students^ The curriculum  proposals were published in a slick  little booklet distributed around the  province and in his accompanying,  statement, the Minister of Education,  Pat McGeer, said it was his intention  that all "interested mdividuals"  should have a chance to publicly  discuss and debate its contents.  The government, it seems, wanted  input. And to get it, they asked all  local school boards to hold hearings  into the curriculum plan. Well they  may get input from Kamloops and  they may get input from Ashcroft but  the Department of Education  shouldn't expect to hear much noise  from the Sunshine Coast.  It appears that only the parents of  children now attending school were  informed of the local core curriculum  discussions.  Superintendent John Denley said  Peninsula schools were told to set up  their own meetings, all of which were  to be held before February 18. Individual school were also to let people  know of the times and dates. Most of  the schools did this by sending home  announcements with the kids.  But the general public, that large  number of people who don't currently  have children in school bilt just might  be interested in the future of  education in this province, have lost  their chance to have a say.  Denley says the school board  didn't advertise the time and place of  the meetings because the provincial  government had already placed large  notices in news papers. Locally, these  appeared before Christmas, and were  basically only announcements of, the  availability of the core curriculum  pamphlet.  The next school board meeting is  February 24. It is to be hoped that the  school trustees will decide that  everyone, hot just parents, have a  right to decide the pattern of a child's  education. It is to be hoped that they  will at least call, and advertise one  meeting so the general public of the  Sunshine Coast can have a say in this  important subject. ,  Between the lines  Elsewhere in this issue is a story  concerning a Regional Board planning  committee resolution asking for creation  of a marine reserve in the waters  surrounding the northern end of the  Peninsula.  Committee chairman Jack Paterson  proposed the reserve as a means of  protecting marine life from divers.  Being new to this area, I have been  spending my free time poking around in  various corners of the Peninsula and  coincidentally recently encountered some  of the objects of Paterson's concern.  My wife, Judy, and I made the hike  from Egmont to Skookumchuck Narrows  last Monday���an easy 45 minute walk and  well worth your time if you've never done *,-  it. P ?-.,,^prT  The trail begins off the highway just  above Egmont, circles behind the settlement, then sets off through the woods  following a small creek. In the southern  U.S. these little valleys eaten out of the  hillside by creeks are called hollers ���  presumably because if you do that at one  end the sound bounces all the way to the  other end. <  The day we made the hike the only  noises escaping Egmont were the occasional barking of a dog and the steady  beat of someone's hammering. These  sounds followed us up the holler and  persisted long after the woods had closed  around us.  Other than the dramatic overview of  the narrows, the high point of the hike for  me was the discovery of hundreds of  brilliantly coloured starfish clinging to the  rocks around the boatramp at the northeast corner of the park.  Now maybe these starfish are fairly  routine stuff if you've lived around here all  your life, but being a Texas boy, I can't  recall a better show outside the aquarium.  The Gulf of Mexico may have starfish like  Uils, but you'll never see them through the  Gulf's muddy waters.  The spectacle did raise .some questions  in my uninformed mind. Like, why is it  that all the purple starfish seem to like  collecting together in big mounds while the  orange and yellow fellows prefer moro  .solitary arrangements? Do Uie purple  starfish get cold? Or Is Uils .some delicate  fact of starfish life tliat I shouldn't inquire  about.  Also, what do starfish eat? Oysters, I  know, eat pearls and clams subsist mainly  on chowder. And what are those  specimens with a dozen or more legs ��� or  aro Uiey arms? Are those different species  or mutants or what? Maybe they're simply  accident prone starfish: I seem to  remember from some biology course (In  which I did not excel) tliat If you cut off a  starfish's leg (or arm) it would grow back,  sometimes In duplicate. Although come to  think of it that might have been lizards  who lost their tails.  In any case, I was Impressied and more  power to the notion of a marine reserve.  The resolution passed unanimously,  with some directors chuckling Hint opposing It would be equivalent to a vote  against motherhood.  Well, nil I know about motherhood is  By Dennis Fitzgerald  second-hand, but I do know that my walk  around the narrows was a more peaceful  experience than much of my fatherhood.  Babies are made by fools like me, but  only a minister of the environment can  make a marine reserve.  Some mention ought to be made in  these pages of the social event of last  week: the Valentines Dance and Potluck  Supper given Saturday by Roberts Creek  Elementary faculty and staff at the  Roberts Creek Community Centre.  I don't have much experience in  "reviewing these sort of shindigs...but into  the breach with apologies to all the  responsible folks whose names I'm about  to omit.  ��� ..First o(#,.everyone agr^qVthattn^L  " eats Were first class, so kfrdcs to the"cftoks."*  Most of them. Myself, I thought the stuff  with the oranges in it should have had  something else put in or something left  out. Maybe both. Also, they cleared the  table before I could get back for seconds,  but perhaps the kids, who couldn't join the  festivities, will get the leftovers.  Speaking of the kids, they did a top-  notch job cutting out and pasting up all the  decorations. Good work, kids. The cupid  on my table had a little glue showing  around the edges, but it was dry so we'll let  that pass.  The evening was only slightiy  blemished when one couple began dancing  as Whiskey Jack, led by vocalist Neil  McKenzie, was tuning up. This was uncalled for as most everyone agreed you  could tell the difference after they began  playing.  Roberts Creek Principal Mr. Wetmore  demonstrated his administrative abilities  by running the bar with a firm hand. Some  said too firm, but you have whiners in  every gathering.  Anhie Dempster, in a bright green  dress, kept the evening moving smoothly  and Ignored the smart-aleck scrawlings  chalked on the bulletin board.  Unfortunately, the climax of the  evening was scheduled after your  correspondent hnd to return to his post.  That was the kissing booth, with drink  tickets exchangeable for smooches.  Jamie Davidson and Ron Bunting, the  well-known "Kissing Teachers" of  Roberts Creek Elementary, were slated to  occupy the male side of Uie booth and  when last seen were busily fortifying their  courage.  In nn exclusive Interview with The  Times, Davidson, his courage well fortified, admitted that he was finding 85 per  cent of the women in the room attractive.  It was undetermined, however, whether  any of these were willing to give up their  drink tickets. Davidson came prepared  with a tube of toothpaste ln his pocket ���  whether for the kisser or the kissee's  benefit wns unclear.  It was also unclear how the proceedaS, If  any, from the kissing booth would be  spent. According to one source, they  probably will lx. "wasted."  The Times 1ms learned that there Is no  specific, written school district policy  expressly prohibiting a faculty member  from selling his Imdy at a school benefit.

BOOK LOOK  by Murrie Redman  For youngsters in the primary and  intermediate years, I have three books  from MacMillan and Company, none of  which exceed $10 and all which are worth  the price if you are looking for quality  material for your little readers.  "Bearymore" is a circus bear whose  boss has just told him that he must give up  his dull unicycle ride to try for a new act in  the coming season. Bearymore is upset  but because he is just beginning his long  hibernation, he cannot give the problem  too much thought. Author Don Freeman  creates an accidental soluUon that solves  Bearymore's dilemma and delights the  picture book set.  Lucille Clifton, noted for her inner-city  stories, brings us Three Wishes. The story  might be a trifle far away from our  realities but it docs have universal appeal  and is warm and pleasing. While out  walking wlUi her friend, Victorious,  Zcnobla finds a shiny coin that has on lt the  very year of her birth. Of course, that  makes it a tliree wish coin I Tho first two  arc soon spent and not too wisely either.

Fortunately, the method does not seem artificial but lends a no-excuses-needed  authenticity to Uie gentle, softly sluided  pictures,  The third story is Merry Ever After,  written and illustrated by Joe Ijtsker.  Although the two medieval weddings  portrayed In the story are fancy, the  fashions, mores and manners of that age  are reproduced faithfully.

Times article 'inaccurate'  Editor, The Times,  Sir: We refer to the article entitled  "Troubled Seaside Village restarting"  appearing in the January 26th issue of the  Peninsula Times. There are certain  inaccurancies, directly or by inference, in  this article. These are as follows:  1. The article mentions that there were  alleged irregularities in prospectuses filed  by us and these "apparently included  equiring customers of Glenmont to  'contract tne building of their homes  through Interfacial". At no time did  Glenmont require that any purchaser of a  lot contract the building of his home  through Interfacial.  2. The article states that "promises  were made (at the hearing) to refinance  Interfacial through Union Steamships and  to complete all homes already contracted." Any promise made at this  hearing with respect to the refinancing of  Interfacial was made by the representative of Union, James, Interfacial and  Gairns, and not by Glenmont.  3. The article infers that the writer  deliberately avoided phone calls from  your newspaper. This is not true. In any  event, Glenmont has received no direct  information concerning any plans for  resumption of work at the "Seaside  Village" subdivision.  Glenmont Holdings Ltd.,  Glenn E. Crippen,  President.  In response:  1. At the Ume Glenmont's prospectus  Modern Living  We've a Cadillac and a Jaguar  And the best seats at Uie show.

The release said purchasers of lots in  Seaside Village were required to enter into  the building contracts with one or more of  Glenmont's agents.  ! '-'fto sucH representation was ih the  prospectuses filed by Glenmont, CahtelJ  stated.  2. The article does not state that any  promise with respect to refinancing was  made at the hearing by Glenmont. At-the  public hearing into Seaside Village held  last April in Vancouver it was announced  by lawyer Scott Stewart, acting on behalf  of Interfacial Designs, Union Steamships  and Stan James, that Union Steamships  intended to sell some Bowen Island  property to cover part of Interfacial's  debts. Bud Gairns said after this meeting,  "Neither I nor Union Steamships would  allow Interfacial Designs to go bankrupt."  3. This paragraph, in full, states: "Glen  Crippen, president of Glenmont Holdings,  did not return telephone messages left by  The Times. His secretary said they "heard  nothing    whatsoever"    about    Cairns'  plans." ��� ���  H ���Editor.  Page A-2 The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, February 16, 1977  t^^mmmmm^mmmm^m^mmm^tmmm^mmm^mKmmmmmmmtmmmmmmmtmmmm^mm^mmmmmmm  Garden  Corner  BY GUY SYMONDSr  According to those who are supposed to  know, the mark of a good gardener is the  possession of a cold frame filled with good,  strong plants. Well, at least let's say this is  one of the good marks ��� there are others.  This remark should be extended to include  a statement that there should also be a  corner of the garden reserved for a nursery bed where the little chaps do not have  to contend for existence with the big boys.  One point many seem to miss is that the.  starting of plants from seed must be done  under as nearly sterile conditions as  possible. Whether you use a hot frame, a  cold frame or simply want to grow a few  seedlings in a pot indoors, it is essential  that both the container used and the  medium in which the seeds are sown are  sterile. That is, that they arepurged as far  as possible of any contamination that may  encourage the development of disease or  fungus.  Don't try to cut corners too drastically  by using ordinary soil instead of treated  potting soil unless you are prepare to  sterilize it first ��� either by baking it in the  oven, by pouring boiling water through' or  by the use of some such agent as formaldehyde. A recommended procedure is  to use a mixture of screened and sterilized  soil, sharp sand and peat moss in equal  quantities in a sterilized flat and on top of  this to .add one inch of vermiculite or some  other such inert material,  The seeds are sown thinly in this and  barely covered with either the soil mixture  or the vermiculute. Kept moist and warm  they have the chance to germinate in a  alsease-free medium. When the roots  develop they reach down into the growing  medium and proceed with their appointed  task for growing a plant.  For the first couple of days protect the  seeds from light by covering the container  with a pice of brown paper. If a cold frame  is not being used the container should also  be covered with a piece of plastic and kept  in place for a day or two after the brown  paper has. been removed.  In a few days, five to seven, the seeds  will germinate and the first two leaves,  which are not really true leaves at all, will  appear. Transplanting however should not  be attempted until the next evidence of  growth, two real leaves. Any time after  that the little fellows can be carefully  removed and put into another flat spaced  one inch apart. Use the same growing  medium. From this time on, watering is  very important. If the soil is light and  porous you are not likely to over-water.  Obviously, however, common sense will  show the extent of moisture needed.  Remember ^at at mis stage drying out is  disastrous.  '  The reason for using sterile equipment  and soil is to minimize the danger of  "damping off" ��� the death really ��� of  seedlings by the growth of fungus. This  can also be minimized by the use of a  rooting powder. There are several on the  market and one simply dips the roots of  the seedling in the powder before introducing them to their new home.  Besides the vital watering, proper  ventilation is' of the utmost importance.  You need all the light you can get but not  too much heat, so use every means to  toughen the young plants by gradual exposure as the temperatures rise. This will  raise husky young plants with built in good  constitutions. Any experienced gardener  knows that plants of this type are less  bothered by pests and more disease  resistant.

The first was that his life was in  danger; the second was something that  could literally keep him alive.  Billie had been sent to Oakalla for six  days after he was found drunk February 2  in the provincial court clerk's office in  Sechelt. On probation for a previous offence Billie had been forbidden to touch  alcohol and was already facing two further  breach of probation charges involving  liquor.  Last Wednesday provincial court judge  Ian WAlker was told Billie had been  branded as an informer while at Oakalla,  and probation officer Neil McKenzie asked  the court not to return the accused to the  Lower Mainland jail as his stay would be  "difficult."  McKenzie added that while in custody  Billie had heard of the Salvation Army's  Miracle Valley alcohol treatment centre  and genuinely desired to be sent there.  "He has a committment to this program,"  said McKenzie, and "in view of his sincerity I ask that he be put on probation  again."  Prosecutor Hugh McCallum warned  that while he wouldn't oppose this  suggestion, if Billie were ever before the  courts again he would seek a jail term. "If  he doesn't succeed in this program, stated  McCallum, "then he's going to go back to  leading the life of an alcoholic."  Speaking quietty, Billie told the judge,  "I've Spent most of my years as a juvenile  in jail. I learned a life of crime. It wrecked  my life. I'll be 31 soon. I feel I've had  enough."  Replying, Judge Walker said, "It appears you have a desire to rid yourself of  your alcohol problem; only you can do  this."-  He then suspended sentence on Bike for  one year on condition he undergo  probationary supervision and take  treatment at the Miracle Valley centre.  "I hope you will profit from this-  program," the judge counselled Billie.  "Your life and salvation has to be in your  hands."  KEEP  . C.

The ladies who attended the volunteer's  workshop came away with knowledge that  is not only going to help them in their  chosen volunteer work, but in their personal life as well.  The workshop took place at Roberts  Creek Elementary School, running from 9  a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, February 5.  Theoretical lectures were gftfen by  physiologists Elizabeth Brown of Gibsons  and Claire Hawes of Halfmoon Bay in the  morning. After the break for lunch the  practical side of volunteering was  demonstrated by Claire Hawes.  She discussed how to be personally  more effective, sensitive to the needs of  others and how to learn their needs  through this sensitivity. Truly how to  listen not just to words but body language  as they try to express their needs without  asking. Using your whole self more effectively,   stressing   not   to   come   to  PEGGY CONNOR 885-934?  decisions for others but helping them to  make their own decisions by listening.  The practical side was well illustrated  as the volunteers used each other to  practise the theory learned earlier.  Fantastic feedback was felt as the  students for the day were swept up in their  new learning.  Majority of those present were interested in continuing or starting as  volunteers, some in working with retarded  children, some as hospital volunteers and  with the Volunteer Bureau.  Mrs. Brown said the requirements for  volunteers are a willing heart, helping  hands and a knowledgeable mind.  A very enlightening workshop, one that,  would bear repeating. It is not enough just  to give your time, valuable as it is. The  more learning, the greater the quality of  help. '.

The main thing is that  everyone had a good time and enjoyed a  lot of sociability. Our next expedition is to  Welcome Beach Hall at Halfmoon Bay on  February 21.  Members of Senior Citizens Br. 69 are  reminded that there will be the monthly  general meeting on Thursday, February  17, and Fourth Thursday social time will  occur February 24. Turn out to both  meetings and have a good time. We have  to start planning for the Spring Tea and  Bazaar on April 23.  The bus load of members who went to  Seaton Villa on February 8 had a very  enjoyable trip. When we arrived our  former member Mrs. Postelwhaite was  waiting at the door to welcome her many  old friends from Sechelt. Mrs.  Postlewhaite was looking very well indeed  to the pleasure of her many friends.

While perhaps an exaggeration, this  statement is indicative of the frustration  many area women feel when thfey attempt  to enter the local job market for the first  time.  There is a much higher proportion of  women in the labour force now than there  was 10 years ago, according to Canada  Manpower manager Jack Ross.  "A whole new labor group is being  formed by women," says federal job  creation officer Sue Ritterspack. "They  are going out to work not to pay for that  family summper trip to Europe, but from  necessity." '  Ross says that while he has a roughly  equal number of male and female applicants on file, Canada Manpower places  more women than men in local jobs. He  agrees with the suggestion that most  available women's work falls into the low  paying clerical and sales areas. "These  types of jobs," notes Ross, "are very much  Ihe minimum wage type."  Men, according to Ross, can expect to  earn $4 to $5 an hour doing manual labour  while a woman doing clerical work on the  Peninsula is much more likely to receive  nearer $3.50 an hour.  Adds, Ross, "The local job market has a  lot to do with the sort of wages people will  accept. Local employers know they can  pay the minimum wage and still get  flooded with applications."  Women who come to see him, Ross  claims, are looking for conventional  works, such as typing or cooking. They are  not, Ross says, particularly interested in  the tradionally male jobs, such as the  operation of heavy equipment.  "This may surprise you," he says  "considering how many young, intelligent  women there are here.They are willing to  plant trees, be outdoors, but that's as far  as it goes. Then they revert to the old  standbys."  Liz Smith of the Human Resources  Department disagrees with the belief that  local women will only accept the standard,  low paying jobs, but often, she says, they  have little choice in the matter, especially  if they are head of a single parent family.  "There is a high rate of unemployment  here among women who have to bring up  their children alone," she says. "They are  locked into their role. They married'young  to get out of the home or away from their  parents. They latched Onto the first .guy  who came into their lives, and now they  are deserted, isolated and unskilled."  These women, argues Smith, are  exactly the sort of people who should be  receiving career counseling from Canada  Manpower and given upgrading courses  and vocational training. Instead, she says,  they often end up on welfare.  Jane, a Sechelt resident, was  registered with Canada Manpower for  over a year. Financial problems and a  husband who needed to return to school  forced her back to work. A sales clerk with  PageA-6 The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, February 16,1977  some secretarial skills, she has been out of  the labor force for nearly 10 years. *  "It was so depressing," she says. "You  would go down to Manpower, be told to  come back next week and leave. It was  always the same routine."  Jane finally went to work on a local LIP  grant, a job she found without Manpower's  help. She suggests that because of the  scarcity of jobs on the Sunshine Coast,  once a woman finds employment she holds  on to it, knowning she is lucky to have  anything at all.  But Jane gets angry when she sees  women who don't need the money working  and taking jobs away from those who have  to support their families.  Part time jobs for women are at a  premium. Recently the Sechelt school  board wanted a librarian to work a few  hours a week in the new Chatelech school.  They were faced with a small avalanche of  over 50 applications.  An, no, the school board, according to  Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills, does not  advertise through Canada Manpower.

You're not alone  ���From Page A-l  never bother to register because CMC  never has any jobs."  Ross estimates his office posts 10 to 15  vacancies a week. When he came here 18  months ago, he says, the number was  closer to zero. The increase, he explains, is  largely due to the contacts he has made  with local businesses. He spends approximately a day and a half a week in the  field talking to employers and doing  follow-up work on previous meetings.  But Ross maintains employers still  avoid his service. It becomes, he states, a  status symbol, an ego trip for firms to  have job applications in their own files.  "They also think of us as just another  government department interfering with  their lives.  "I know there are more than 10 to 15  jobs at one time in this area," Ross says,  "-because I see them advertised In the  paper, ('anada Manpower should be used  as a central referral agency people  shouldn't have to run from Pender Harbour to Port Mellon looking for a Job."  Ross and Smith agree thnt a major  problem Is the number of unemployed  persons who never register with CMC.  Recently, Ross referred some people to a  government job which they didn't get. The  Job was then advertised In tho paper and  "they were swamped with applications  from people who hadn't come near us."  Hut .Smith says It Is not surprising  |M.oplc> don't go to Manpower. She says  many of the people .she comes Into contact  with are not even aware of the local service.  When people do go to Manpower, she  Mays, they are told then, are no Jobs.  "They fill out an application form, and  that's the extent of the communication  between them.  "There is .so much frustration, so much  auger and hostility when you want to work  but can't net a Job. And Manpower doesn't  help them."

Neil McKenzie is a local probation  officer and another member of the Interagency group who is highly critical of  the local CMC service. Like Smith, he  attaches little blame to Ross for what  McKenzie sees as CMC failing.  "My role as a probation office,"  McKenzie says, "is not to find someone  work, but I discover myself caught in that  role sometimes and lt makes the quality of  the rest of my service less. I've tried  sendingpeople over to Manpower, without  success. I have a feeling that their present  attitude is really narrow, that they feel  their job is only to provide a referral  service."  "Manpower is claiming," adds  McKenzie, "That there Is a lack of Industry here so people are bound to be out  of work. But tliat Is part of Manpower's  function, to persuade easinesses to create  those Jobs. Just who Is Canada Manpower  supposed to be serving, the employer or  the guy who hasn't found work for two  years?"  One of the Interagency group's major  complaints Is tlwt Manpower does not  Include the Sunshine Coost aB a separate  entity in Its bi-monthly, nationally  distributed Job listings. "We're Just  lumped ln with Powell River," says Smith.  The group contends that listing the  Sunshine Coast separately would give  IM.ople In other parts of the country a truer  indication of the Job market here and  would discourage Job seekers from  moving to the area.  Ross, however, believes thnt a separate  listing would have the opposite effect and  would draw In mdre people.  Ross says he often advised local  residents to l>egln Job hunting in Vancouver, because his agency simply has no  appropriate listings. Smith .says a person  is more likely to find a Job by checking the  notice bourds in local laundromats tlwn by  going to Manpower.  The Interagency group argues that the  minimum CMC service needed on the  Sunshine Coast Is an office that Is open five  days a week and staffed by at lea-at two full  time counselors "one to do the leg work  around In re with the employer?., one to do  career planning," says Smith.  "We newi people," McKenzie says,  " wlu> can talk to employ era, be sensitive to  local needs und give people actress to  upgrading programs. The current North  Vancouver service Is hopeless. They have  no commitment to this community."  The Interagency group want the CMC  office left In Sechelt because it Is the  Kcogrnphlc centre of the area. "It's often  difficult for upper Peninsula people to  reach Sechelt, without having them to go  on to Gibsons," says Smith.  Ross, concerned with easy access to  employers, believes his office should be relocated to Gibsons with maybe a one day  service In Sechelt.  "There is reason for optimism," he  says, "that a full time CMC will be  established on the Peninsula in the near  future,"  "That," replied McKenzie, "is a  standard Manpower line. We've heard it  before."  Last year Ross ' distributed a  questionnaire to local businesses asking  their opinion of his office and what use  they would make of CMC if the service  were improved.  Canada Manpower has refused to make  the results of this study public because,  Ross says, the results were his own private  conclusions and were not official Man-,  power policy.  Most Interagency group members  believe, however, that the survey showed  the need for a greatly increased local CMC  service.  "We feel frustrated trying to get the  service that's needed In tills area," says  Smith. "But can you Imagine how tho  people who really need help must feel? We  don't have to go through Uielr situations,  their private agonies, their despair. And  all wo can do Is wait until some federal  mandarin decides the people here have  suffered enough."

She is  nearing 40, has a husband out of work and  five children to support.  A full time waitress for over three  years, she recently lost her job and went  on to unemployment insurance. After two  months her benefits were cut off and her  appeal against this decision denied.  "They told me," she says bitterly,  "that I lived in a low employment area and  should be prepared to move away to find a  job. My husband, my children, our home  ��� am I supposed to just abandon them?"  In ,an area such as the Sunshine Coast  where there is a high rate of unemployment, this is usually matched by an  equally high number of people collecting  UIC. However, in an isolated, rural area it  is much more difficult to meet the  stringent UIC job hunting requirements  than it is, say, in Vancouver.  "After a while," says Human  Resources workers Liz Smith, "people end  up doing the rounds of the same businesses  over and over again.  "UIC's attitude," Smith says, "is that if  people can't find a job here in X number of  weeks they should simply move. And this  attitude isn't improved by the poor local  service they provide."  The UIC centre is open in Sechelt on  Wednesdays only. It shares premises with  the Canada Manpower people who work  Tuesdays and Thursdays. The sign on the  front door advises claimants with UIC  questions or problems to either phone or  visit the commission's North Vancouver  offices. .'������'  Canada Manpower manager Jack Ross  was reluctant to comment on the local UIC  situation but ventured it was "highly  likely" that most of the 490 people  registered last month with his service  were also claiming unemployment insurance.  One prevalent attitude he has noticed,  Ross said, is that "around here UIC is seen  as a winter pension fund for the log.ging  and fishing industries."  A high percentage of the people Liz  Smith deals with in her jol* as a social  assistance worker have lost their  unemployment benefits.  "UIC," she maintains, "have a lot of  legitimate reasons for cutting people off.  There is always the person who works the  minimum eight to 10 weeks a year and  then tries to live off the dole for the rest of  the time. They ruin it for everyone and  that really bothers me as there are some  people who deserve all the help they can  get.  "I see people," she says, "who own  their own homes here, have been residents  all their lives, have dependents and have  worked for years. Then they'll lose their  jobs, go on UIC, get cut off and be given a  four minute appeal. It breaks your heart."  Smith tries to act as a liason for people  who feel they have been unfairly treated  by the commission. However, she says/the  local one day service is so ineffective that  most of the time she deals with the North  Vancouver UIC office. ''  "There are employees there that really  care about a claimant's problems, but as  the long distance calls go back and forth  it's inevitable that misunderstandings  arise.  "I don't know. Maybe we just see the  cogs in the wheel, the cases that aren't  straight forward, but sometimes I think  people here must ieel they are dealing  with some vast faceless computer buried  beneath Vancouver. People don't want to  leave the Peninsula to find work. This is  their home."  A But if longtime residents have troubles  with UIC, the problem is considerably  greater for new arrivals.  And there is plenty of them. Smith says  they arrive "with lock, stock, barrel and  kids." When they can't find jobs they come  to her.  Of ten she can't help them. "Most of this  area has bwn designated by the provincial  government as a low employment area,"  Smith says. "And if people have moved  here from higher areas of industry, then  they're often not eligible for social  assistance.  "We've had people who have come here  from Alberta looking for jobs," she says.  "That's crazy. Canada Manpower is  sending BC workers to Alberta because  there are so many more jobs there."  Many of the people who arrive here are  already on UIC and they can find themselves cut off their benefits because of the  area's high unemployment rate," according to Smith. "If only they would  check first before coming."  Smith says people thinking of movingto  the Sunshine Coast should go to their local  Canada Manpower office and look to see if  there are any local job openings. "The  only problem with that suggestion," she  added, "is that the Manpower office here  is never open to handle those sort of (incoming) inquiries."  Sue Ritterspack is a program officer-  for the federal government's job creation  branch. Her field territory includes the  area from south of Bella Bella to Port  Mellon. It takes in all of the Sunshine  Coast, Powell River and Texada Island.  The coastal zone, she says, is a highly  transient area. The climate and the unskilled labouring jobs available attract  people -from the rest of Canada and the  U.S., leaving fewer jobs for local people.  "There  is  such  a   need  here  for  upgrading courses for people with no job ���  skills," Ritterspack believes; "and for  various reasons they are just not getting  them."  There are a high number of unemployed musicians and artists on the  Sechelt Peninsula, she says, and "they are  all very talented people. They could get a  job in Toronto tomorrow but they won't  leave the coast. In fact, they will do  anything under the sun to stay here."  Buying a gift for a young lady?

As Chairwoman of the  Interagency Liaison Committee she is  one of the most vocal supporters for  improved Canada Manpower services  on the Sunshine Coast.  ��� Timesphoto  Few jobs here for teens  Last Tuesday two teenagers wandered  into the Sechelt Canada Manpower office.  They were both well over six feet tall and  looked ho older'than 17 or 18.  One of them glanced at the'job board  and then turning to his companion said,  "Hey, look at this, there's a dry waller's  job here for five dollars an hour. I can do  that stuff."  He then* approached the receptionist  and inquired about the position. "Sorry,"  she told him, "you will have to come back  on Thursday to see Mr. Ross."  "But I made a special trip into Sechelt  today," he replied. "I'm sorry," she  repeated, but I can't give out job  referrals." Shrugging, both youths left the  building.  Canada Manpower. manager, Jack  Ross, says he is seeing a new phenomenon  in his office, the young, unskilled teenager.  Among the reasons for their appearance  he lists the school semester system as  opposed to the old September to June  academic year. Students, he says, now can  graduate in January, right in the middle of  the high winter unemployment season,  Many of these youths, according to  .Ross, have held only summer jobs before.  They have no special skills training.  "They come in here interested in Manpower's vocational' training programs, but  the waiting lists for these courses are  months long."  So what Ross usually does is H^nd them  a pamphlet that details the CMC Industrial  Training program. This, translated,  means that Manpower will pay part of the  costs for employers who hire people for on  the job training. Since September, 18 local  firms have taken advantage of this  scheme, including a travel agency, a  marina and a lumber company.  Ross feels that an on the job training  program is particularly appropriate both  for this area and for the younger age  group. He would like, he says, to see more  businesses, use this method of acquiring  their workers.  Students looking for summer jobs or for  part-time jobs in the school year have a  tough time in the local job market. There  arc few part time jobs available, says  Auxiliary news  Pender Harbour Auxiliary is busy  making plans for a tea in the Legion Hall  to commemorate the founding of the  original Pender Harbour Auxiliary 40  years ago.'A raffle will be drawn at the  tea.

Ross, although some area firms try to hire  students under 18 in an attempt to pay  lower wages.  Liz Smith, a Sechelt Human Resources  worker, has school pupils coming to her  for welfare money because they can't find  evening or, weekend work. "They don't live  with their parents." she explains, "or they  have left school and now they want to go  back and finish their education, but they  still have to eat."  Smith feels strongly that one of Canada  Manpower's greatest faults in the local  area is the failure to provide career  counselling in the schools. This would  include, she says, teaching creative job  techniques. "Have you ever watched a kid  go after a job?" she asks. "Sometimes  they act as if they are asking for a handout."  "What are you supposed to do when a  student leaves school and can't get work?"  she exclaims. "This is an employer's  market. Firms can pick and choose who  they want to hire and kids just don't know  how to present themselves to an interviewer."  CMC should be more involved in  directing youths to on the job training,  says Smith. And that should happen now,  she adds, because every year, youths are  entering the job market at a younger age.  "I know what services Canada Manpower can provide," she says, "and people  here are just not getting them."  DOffr TOIS our  PITCH IA  A mother's tears and an older brother's  emotional pleas were not enough to keep  Judge Ian Walker from remanding an 18-  year-old youth to prison last week.  Centre" of the painful court scene was  Tim Kennedy of Sechelt who has been  charged -with two counts of possession of  alcohol while underage and three counts of  breach of probation.  While Kennedy's mother and older  brother.. Jim, listened, Prosecutor Hugh  McCallum told the court .that the police  wanted the Grade 11 Elphinstone student  jailed. Probation Officer Neil McKenzie  then reported that the youth "has been  under court order almost continuously  since 1974."  Kennedy, who is already on probation  for an earlier offence and subject to a 9  p.m. curfew, was first charged December  20 when he was found drinking by the  RCMP late at night in a car behind Sechelt  Elementary School.  Nine nights later he was discovered on  Davis Bay dock and attempted to escape  the police by climbing down the wharf  pilings. The 'final charges were laid on  January 2 when Kennedy was seen at 2:15  a.m. jumping,from the window of the  Garden Bay Motel.  Robert Reed, Kennedy's lawyer, said  the boy "has basically no explanation for  his behavior...he has a problem, the  problem of drinking."  Reed asked that Kennedy be allowed to  return with his brother to Trail, the  family's original home, where he could  enroll in either a mining course or a  vocational school.  McKenzie also advocated this solution,  saying Kennedy "is a fine fellow when he's  sober, obviously not when under the influence of alcohol." He is, the probation  officer told the judge, "more of a rowdy  than anything else."  But McCallum disagreed with this  assessment of the accused, maintaining  "he has been a great deal of trouble to the  police."  McCallum added that sending Kennedy  to Trail might provide an answer but said  it should be seen as a "last chance" which  "he may not even deserve."  Judge Walker, however, after listening  to the legal arguments, decided to delay  sentencing until February 23 and directed  that Kennedy be kept in custody until that  date.  It was then that the youth's brother  made his appeal to the court.  Overcome with emotion Jim Kennedy  had difficulty speaking, but finally begged  the judge not to incarcerate his younger  Pensioners  Guaranteed  Income  Supplement  Application forms.  <a-7*  lill them out!

I'll  put up everything I've got. I don't want tp  see him go to jail."  Turning to the accused youth, Judge  Walker told him, "The tears should be  yours, not your brothers." Walker  declined to review the remand order.  Jim Kennedy then pleaded that, "two  weeks in jail won't do him any good at all-  it will just do him harm." After her son  had finished, Kennedy's mother, with  tears streaming down her face, entreated.  Judge Walker to allow her youngest son  "to go home to Trail."  The judge gently told her, "I'm sympathetic to you and your (elder), son but  there comes a time when people must be  responsible for their own .actions."

Most of the people lived in the  big metropolitan area at the southern end,  amid burgeoning jungles of highrise glass  and concrete, and feasted on profits from  the resources of earth, sea and forest. The  urban people generally took for granted  their supermarket shelves, overflowing  with fresh produce, their electric push  button society and the supply of fuel to  keep their cars and transit operating.  They rarely gave a thought to the lives of  those in the outback who provided much of>  the wealth, grew the food and lived with  flooded valleys to harness the hydro  power. They might make periodic forays  < into the bush to ski or camp or hunt, if  possible taking their environment with  them.  The northern people suffered mainly  from an acute sense of isolation, from  being forced into the regulatory mold  designed for the urban majority and from  the frustration otnot being aUeto^Jet at or -  influence, their ^representative* in the  southern halls of power. With considerable  forsight the country had a communications system financed by government, free from the commercial imperatives which governed the private  sector, with a mandate to among other  things, keep a dialogue going between the  rural and urban areas, to help them understand and appreciate their interdependence.  Unfortunately the radio network  operated out of a big city bunker and  inevitably there were complaints from the  outback that they didn't have a real voice  and that their concerns were not covered.  Those who understood and had a feeling  for the province as a community were not  listened to by the brass who were imports  from other provinces ��� and anyway the  decisions and budgets were controlled  thousands of miles away in another city.  Predictably the answer was to give the  outback its own program, run of course  from a studio in that big city bunker. Now  the outback could talk to itself without  being bothered by big city problems. But  did this really satisfy their basic concern:  their need to be understood by the people  ln the south and to be recognized as integral parts of the whole community with  a wide variety of individual needs and  potentials?  Listeners to CBC radio will recognize In  this .scenario changes which have taken  place recently. Since January 1, there  have been two early morning programs.  Good Morning Radio serves the lower  mainland, Fraser Valley, Victoria,  Nanaimo and lower Georgia Strait  communities, including the Sunshine  Coast. The rest of the Province has its own  program called Daybreak.  I don't know how happy the up country  people are with their new program ��� at  least they've still got host Bob Sharpies ���  but my listening post misses them; it's  almost as if they'd packed their tents and  left a great void behind.  If early morning listeners can be  categorized, they probably fall into four  sectors: those who just listen for  background sound; those whose primary  interest is their own community; those  who just can't cope with issues before  breakfast for a variety of valid reasons,  and those who are involved with issues and  (perhaps because they're morning people)  wake up in gear and ready to go. With a  few exceptions where CBC radio has a  captive audience, those of us who listen to  Good Morning Radio are probably  category 4 people. We're interested and  .. pxateu^j*active sin a^de varied,of  concerns and aware of the importance of  the relationships between town and  country, industry and the environment,  population and pollution, etc. That's why  we listen to GMR.  Quite apart from all the daily difficulties of time, priorities, the inadequacy  of the format to cover anything in any  depth and the difficulty of trying to be all  things to all people in a province this size  in three short hours, was it really  necessary to cut us off from each other, to  balkanize the province? Wouldn't we have  been better served with freelancers in  strategic areas than by another production  team in the bunker getting its information  second hand? I wonder if one of the most  important factors in creating a feeling of  community was ever considered?  Someone with a vision. Let me explain.  One summer in the late sixties a  broadcaster from Prince Rupert, Graham  Lea, took over the afternoon slot, 4-6 p.m. I  S SOUND CONSTRUCTION S  can remember it clearly because he  turned what had been a dull driving home  show, with no horizon beyond the traffic on  Georgia Street, into a magic panorama of  mountain ranges, lush valleys, upland  plateaux and rocky coasts, alive with the  comings and goings, joys, sorrows and  interests of the diverse people who make  up this province. It's not primarily a  question of time or money, but of  motivation and caring. Something Peter  Gzowski and Alex Frame understood and  which enabled them to put a team together  which embraced the whole country. The  quality and the potential of radio depends  upon people.  Over the years, Good Morning Radio  has had its ups and downs but it has been  most worthwhile when the whole crew has  had that quality of caring which enabled  them to bring together people of all ages  from all walks of life to share their con  cerns.  It's unfortunate that the CBC has lost:  its sense of direction when the rest of us  ,;are-becoming jnore aware -of the hid'/  portance of the role it should be playing in  our national system. The crowded urban  centres, the wide open spaces of the  prairies and the forest clad mountains are  not separate worlds. They are interdependent. And in a democratic system it  is of the utmost importance that the city  residents, the majority, understand their  responsibility to the decision making  process.  Expediency has always been the  currency of politics; we need to know and  understand both sides of the coin if we are  not to be short changed.  Heart and blood vessel disease causes  more industrial lost time than strikes and  work stoppages in Canada each year.  The Regional Board last week passed a  resolution asking that a U-shaped area dn  the Peninsula's northern end be  designated a marine reserve.  The purpose of the reserve, according  to Director Jack Paterson who introduced  the motion, is to prevent commercial oi<  sport divers from stripping the section of  its corals, sponges, sea snails, anemonae  'A bit of a bully'  A 6-foot-2 "bully" was given a six  month conditional discharge in provincial  court last week for assaulting a 5-foot-8  hitchhiker.  Kelly Barabash, 18, of Garden Bay was  charged after he and some friends became  involved in a fight and chase down the  Garden Bay boardwalk with Ken Patterson, a man they had earlier picked up in  their jeep.  Barabash testified that Patterson who  was arguing with a companion, had been  slow in getting out of his vehicle so he had  thrown his backpack to the ground. He  alleged Patterson, who received a cut eye  and kick in the head in the fight, had hit  him first.  Judge Walker, however, responded  that Barabash sounded Uke a bit of a bully  and handed out the conditional discharge,  including a stipulation that Barabash hot  consume any-liquor.  A marine salesman found operating his  boat in "an abnormal way" in Welcome  Pass pleaded guilty February 2 to having  control of a motor vessel while impaired.  RCMP found Harold Locke of Vancouver in the Gulf of Georgia waters on  January 6. They contacted him by renting  a boat after receiving complaints from a  resident Uving along the shoreline.  Taken back to the Sechelt detachment  Locke was given a breathalyzer and  recorded a .21 reading. He told Judge  Walker he had consumed some Uquor to  keep him warm while using his boat.  Prosecutor Hugh McCallum noted that  if Locke had been convicted of impaired  driving he would automatically lose his  Ucense.  Noting that to suspend Locke from  operating a motor vessel would impair his  livelihood, the judge fined the man $300.  School board drops  teacher recruiting  and sea cucumbers.  Paterson said the Pacific Divers Club  has prepared a sUde show on the area's  marine life and he feared the pubUcity  could lead to despoliation. The region is ,  the northernmost point on the coast where  such life exists, he said.  The proposed reserve extends from  Hodgson Island to Agamemnon Channel,  including all of Captain Island, then down  Sechelt Inlet through Skookumchuck  Narrows to a point opposite Doriston.  The resolution was directed to both the  federal and provincial ministries of environment.  Paterson stressed that the resolution  was not intended to interfere with fishing  operations.

" Two million acres of land near B.C.  j;.Hy<|ro's    proposed   Homathko    hydro  ' Metric power project are now being  ipdied for a Class A park and planning is  ^eU under way because it began in the  e&fly 1970s.  The area includes many mining  properties and Indian land claims. The  B.C. parks branch has long been interested in such an area because there is  no Class A park between Tweedsmuir in  the north and Garibaldi in the south.  To date only one such park has been  designated in B.C., and that is the Babine  Mountain park announced by the government in September.  Outdoor recreation and conservation  groups have got together in the Outdoor  Recreation Council of B.C. to study the  Chilcotin scheme and last month submitted a report to the provincial government.  In it they recommend that the hydroelectric development of Chilko and Taseko  lakes, part of a proposed $562 million  project by Hydro, be prohibited.  The scheme is not high on Hydro's list  of priorities and comes after sites on the  Peace River, but would involve diverting  water from Chilko and Taseko lakes to a  power plant.  The council recommends in its study of  the proposed park area that the possibility  of upgrading the present forest road from  Pemberton to Williams Lake and the  building of a road from there to Gold  Bridge should be investigated.  It has been proposed  to  the En  vironment and Land Use Committee that  two different reserves be set up in the park  area.  The first would be an 830,000-acre Class  A provincial park taking in most of Chilko  and Taseko lakes. Adjoining the park to  the east would be a 860,000 acre "integrated management unit" in which the  natural values would be protected but  existing industry such as mining would be  allowed to continue "where compatible."  The reserve would include a wilderness  core at the head of Tyaughton, Big and  Relay creeks.  The council also recommends that an  extensive trail stystem for horseback  riding, backpacking, ski-touring and snow-  mobiling be developed in this unit.  In its brief, the council describes the  proposed park area about 60 miles south  west of Williams Lake as a region of great  recreation potential.  "It is capable of accommodating  virtually the entire spectrum of winter and  summer recreational pursuits," it states.  'Its broad U-shaped valley make it a  benign wilderness. Its relatively low  snowfall results in an early melt, thereby  opening the area for recreational use early  in the summer.  "The fisheries resource in this part of  the Chilcotin is excellent. Wildlife in the  region is both varied and numerous. Small  mammals and numerous bird species are  extremely plentiful and among the many  abundant big game animals to be found  are moose, mule deer, mountain goat,  grizzly, black bear, cougar, lynx and  wolves."

Pages 1-4  Trustees weighing proposed  guide for leaves of absence  In response to a public furor which  erupted last November when Sechelt  school trustees denied short leaves of  absence to three local teachers who  wanted to participate in a B.C. rugby tour  to Hawaii, the following proposals have  been suggested by the school board  management committee and will be  discussed at the trustees' February 24  meeting.  Requests for leave of absence, without  pay, for a period in excess of three months,  but hot exceeding one school year,\ are  subject to approval by the Board of School  Trustees.  In considering such requests the board  will apply the following guidelines:  1. All such requests must be made in  writing.  2. A minimum of four years of con-.  tinuous   teaching   service    must   immediately preceed the period of leave.  3. The purpose of the leave must be of  obvious advantage to the the instructional  well being of the school district.  4.

Not more than five per cent of the  district teaching staff will be granted  leave concurrently.  6. Such other factors as may become  apparent at the time of consideration.  Applications will be considered by the  board at the first regular board meeting in  the month of May.  The school board plans to consult with  the Sechelt Teacher's Association before  drawing final guidelines for temporary  leaves of absence.   ���  Apply now for  Timber Days  The Timber Days Committee is urging  all persons who want space or. booths for  this year's event, scheduled for May 22-21!,  to apply now in order to obtain the best  locations. Deadline for applications is  March 7.  Public relations chairman Marie  Hoffar noted that the committee has taken  steps to make this year's event more  profitable for participants.  A plea was issued at the February 7  meeting of the committee for some ladies  to put on a tea garden and for someone to  put on a baron beef, bingo and other fund-  raising events.  Robert Allen, co-chairman of the coordinating committee, reported success in  arranging for better lighting and additional wiring at the Hackett Park site.  Also, the grounds are in better shape, he  said, and participants have been  requested to keep horses and cars off the  recently seeded turf.  Treasurer Jake Friesen was heartened  ' by an early payment for the celebration  from the International Order of Foresters,  represented by Bruce Walks and Bill  Hughes. They also donated a cup for the  loggers sports.  Ken Nelson, who helped the Canadian  Chopping Team place third in the recent  International Loggers Sports held in  Spain, agreed to be master of ceremonies.  Applications for space at the event  should be submitted to Sechelt Timber  days (1977), Co-ordinating Committee,  Box 1333, Sechelt.  THE FINAL ARCHITECT'S design  for the new Pender Harbour Secondary school was displayed at last  week's school board meeting.

Hit and run  receives  jail term  Gordon Davie's past finally caught up  with him last week and he lost seven  months of his future in the encounter.  Davie, 23, of Sechelt disappeared four  years ago after failing to appear for a  court hearing. Last week he was fined and  sentenced to a jail term by provincial  court judge Ian Walker for two separate  offenses.  Davie, was involved in a hit and run  accident in July 1973, but instead of appearing for his trial fled to Hawaii. He  returned to the Peninsula late last year  and went to work for a logging camp in  Claholme Falls. He was subsequently  charged there taking a motor vehicle  without the owner's consent.  Davie, who has previous narcotic and  theft convictions, was told by Judge  Walker thSt his "extremely long record"  must be taken into account when sentencing. The judge also noted the man had  a drinking problem and that he was  "skirting disaster by drinking at all."  Davie was fined $300 for the 1973 hit and  run incident. Saying his failure to appear  to answer that charge was "most  reprehensible," Judge Walker imposed a  one month jail term-and then added a  further six months for taking the motor  vehicle without permission.  ���  Wrinkle in Cameo trade !  OFFICIAL NOTICE  Cameo Lands subdivision developer  Hank Hall thinks he may have found a  wrinkle in the property swap he has  arranged with the Regional District.  Hall last Thursday told the district  planning committee he is concerned that  competitors may be allowed to locate on  the nearby leasehold being negotiated by  the villages of Gibsons and Sechelt.  He said if competitors located on that  property, adjacent to the airport, they  would not have to buy their land and could  tie into the municipal water system  without having to contribute to bringing in  a water line, as Hall is doing.  This would give them a competitive  advantage, he said.  Several committee members reacted  with surprise to the suggestion that the  villages might use the lease for other than  airport related purposes. Director Peter,  Hosemberg said he had heard nothing of  such a plan, and Director Jim.Metzler,  who is also a Gibsons alderman, told Hall,  A TUGBOAT is carried churningly  Uirough Skookumchuck Narrows by  the outgoing tide. The Regional  District planning committee last  week approved a resolution asking  that the area be made a marine  reserve.

We're not  developers."  Pending clarification of the matter, the  committee tabled its scheduled reading of  a zoning by-law for the airport land.  Contacted later by The Times, Sechelt  Alderman Frank Leitner, who has been  active in negotiating the lease with the  Ministry of Transport, said plans now call  for it to be used, "mostly for aviation."  He confirmed that there has been some  discussion about subleasing for light industry, but said, "I don't think (Hall) has  got anything to worry about. There's just  not that much land there."  He estimated that potential light industrial land totalled about six or eight  lots, each 100 foot by 200 foot. But any  decision about such use of the land is "way  down the road," Leitner said.  He said lease negotiations are in  abeyance now pending word from the  Department of Highways concerning  current plans for the relocation route of  Highway 101. That route may pass near  the airport and thus would need to be  considered in the lease negotiation, he  .said. _.  The proposed Cameo hind trade is now  under consideration by the provincial  Ministry of the Envirnoment. It involves  20 acres of Cameo land which would be  traded for 20 acres of agricultural reserve  land. The Regional District plans to use its  20 acres as part of a recreational park  along Chapman Creek. Hall will use his  land for an industrial park.

With the kind of pressure it must be  under, can you blame it?  ��� Timesphoto  From Pender's Portables  Despite the temporary difficulties of  working in portable classrooms with insufficient equipment, Pender Harbour  Secondary students are maintaining high  scholastic averages.  Principal Frank Holmes told the  February 10 meeting of the schooj trustees  that during the fall semester 30 per cent of  the Grade 12 class had a first class  average. Fifty-five per cent of the class  were second class honour students, he  said.   '���'  In the same semester, the Grade ll's  achieved a 15 per cent first class rate and a  47 per cent second class standard.  The Grade 10's had the lowest rate in the  school with only four per cent having a  first class average and 11 per cent with  second class marks.  In Grade 9, 20 per cent were first class,  students and another 25 per cent had  reached the second class level.  Twelve per cent of the Grade 8 class  had first class marks and 45 per cent of the  students had second class averages.  First and second class grades are  based on class grades and on the pupil's  attendance rate during the semester,  Holmes said. Trustees also were told that  five Grade 12 students from the school had  recently taken the provincial scholarship  exams.  Supt John Denley said this was a  remarkable achievement for the students  considering the problems resulting at  Pender Harbour from the school fire last  September.

'''���''���������.������  Hcilf rnoon Bay Happenings  Canary Island holiday  Bill Md Evelyn Pallant of Halfmoon  Bay decided to kill two birds with one  stone ��� spend Christmas with relatives in  England and enjoy a holiday in one of the  famous sun-spots of the Atlantic, the  Canary Islands, off the north-west coast of  Africa.  Christmas with their relatives at Seven  Kings, Essex, proved to be very much like  being home in B.C. with their family. The  pleasure of a family get-together and the  hospitality far outweighed such disadvantages as lack of central heating in  some of the homes, and they enjoyed the  simple pleasures like roasting chestnuts  by the open fire and popping corn. If they  found the English houses cold, it was lucky  they left immediately after Christmas for  no sooner were they on their way to the  Canary Islands than England had her  coldest spell in thirteen years.  They had one setback right at the start  of their trip. While staying at a London  hotel before they headed south, they  returned to their room after a visit to find  both their grips missing. After a frantic  search, the grips turned up in a cubbyhole  on the reception floor. The only things  missing were a bottle of whiskey and some  cigarettes.  At Southampton they boarded the  Spanish ship "Toledo" together with a  number of English and French  passengers, but at Vigo, on the northwest  corner of Spain, they took aboard 150  Spaniards. They first headed for Madeira,  a lovely island famous for its wines. The  Pallants who are used to boats, weathered  the rough trip better than many of the  other passengers.  They cruised south for a week before  reaching the Canary Islands, a volcanic  group belonging to Spain. The islands are  bold and picturesque in outline with  snowcapped mountains rising to altitudes  of 12,000 feet with sub-tropical vegetation.  Crops are sugar cane, tobacco, coffee,  oranges and vegetables. yThe islands export vast quantities of early potatoes and  tomatoes to British and continental  markets. Tropical flowers bloomed  everywhere and the poinsettias were as  large as dinner plates. All the work is done  manually.  There were stops, with tours ashore at  Palma and Teneriffe and the passengers  spent a week at Maspalomas on the  Southern end of Gran Canaria Island. This  they found to be a fast developing tourist  centre, with fine hotels, small supermarkets and many tourist stores, very  largely backed by German capital. Their  hotel overlooked the Playa de Inglis,.  where miles of white sand stretched away  into sand dunes, a popular playground for  hundreds of nudists, many of whom are  middle-aged.  The temperature ranged between 65  and 75 degrees F., cooling off in the late  afternoon and evening. Gran Canada's  rainfall is six inches a year and consequently distilled salt water has to be  used for most domestic purposes. The  water bothered Evelyn who didn't enjoy  her salty tea, but it was no problem for  Bill, who wondered who needed water  when 80 per cent proof whiskey was so  cheap!  The Pallants had hoped for a trip to  Dakar in West Africa but there was a hitch  in the plans. They expressed the opinion  that the Spanish agent who was to have  arranged the Dakar trip was not as smart  as Jan, who had planned their Canary  Island cruise.  For the return curise, they boarded the  "Toledo's" sister ship "Granada" for  Liverpool and they had an English senior  citizen's group aboard. They found that  senior citizens in England receive many  privileges such as reduced rates for tours  find free transit in "many parts of the  country.  The food on board was excellent and  very tasty, though not hot like Mexican  food.  Ori their arrival in Liverpool, the  Pallants journeyed south to Essex for  another visit with their relatives and then  visited friends who have a hotel at San-  down in the Isle of Wight. They were  charmed with the old-world atmosphere of  this small island and found its climate  pleasant, even in winter. Bill, who normally thinks there is no place in the world  like Halfmoon Bay, is talking of buying a  farm there if ever he wins a million dollar  lottery. The island is a popular tourist  resort with many hotels.  In spite of the much discussed poverty  of England, the pubs, says Bill, are all full.  You stand so closely packed together that  he claims you don't know if you .are  drinking your own glass or the other  fellow's, but he liked the genial atmosphere and friendliness of the English  pub.  The flight back was beautiful. They left  England in the evening and followed the  sunset for three-quarters of the flight. It  was light enough to see the country spread  out below them for most of the trip, and  they were happy to be heading back home.  It seems most Sunshine Coasters have  this feeling of nostalgia as they head back  for home after even the most exciting trip.  There is a quickening of the pulse as the  ferry slips into the dock at Langdale and a  lightening of the heart as the car or bus  speeds along Highway 101 toward that spot  where we have put down such deep roots.  Even when the Pallants found that a pack-  rat had taken up residence during their  absence, they agreed that there is no place  like home.  A former pioneer resident of Halfmoon  Bay, Mrs. Grace Curran, died in Kelowna  on February 7 in her 89th year. She was  born in Norfolk County, Ontario, the tenth  generation of the famous Tupper family  which arrived in America in 1634,14 years  after the Pilgram Fathers had arrived in  the Mayflower.  As a young woman, she lived in Vancouver and worked for Customs and  Excise. After her marriage to Ed Curran,  they spent 17 years at Ocean Falls where  they both worked for Pacific Mills, Grace  as a bookkeeper and Ed as an electrician.  Following their retirement in 1936, they  lived for 33 years in Halfmoon Bay, enjoying the love and respect of all who knew  them. In 1969 they moved to Kelowna to  stay in a rest home operated by their old  friend and neighbour, Mrs. Viola Beasley.  Ed Curran died in hospital there in April  1970.  Both Grace Curran and her husband  were true pioneers who were honoured at a  luncheon at Ole's Cove (now Lord Jim's)  during the Centennial celebrations of 1967.  Ed Curran also came of a family of  pioneers. Born in Winnipeg, he was  brought to the West Coast by his family in  1882, travelling in a convoy of 25 immigrant wagons and camping at nights in  circle formation as a protection against  Indian attack. The convoy travelled by the  Oregon Trail, and the Curran family  settled in Oregon for a few years. They  crossed into Canada in 1886 in time to see  the arrival of the first CPR train on the  Pacific coast.  A social evening planned at the  Welcome Beach Hall for Saturday,  February 19, will take the form of a Do-as-  you-please night. Cards are available but  bring your own cribbage boards, chess  sets, Scrabble or what you will.  A reminder that ticket holders for the  NDP pot luck supper on Sunday at 6:30  p.m. should bring their own dishes and  cutlery and that donations for the bake  auction would be appreciated. If there are  any tickets unsold by February 20, they  will be available at the door.  And lest we be accused of bias, it must  be reported that after two defeats at  carpet bowling, the men's team had their  revenge on Monday, February 7, beating  the ladies in both games with a score of 22  points to 11. Next Monday, February 21, at  1:30 p.m. the club will host carpet bowlers  from the Sechelt Senior Citizens'  Association for a friendly game, so all  players are urged to be present.  Have you yet signed the petition for a  piece of land for an athletic field? Members of the Halfmoon Bay Recreation  Commission are doing a house-to-house  campaign for signatures, so if you have  been away or have been missed for any  reason, please telephone Peggy North at  8(15-2481. We have been asked to make  clear ���tfiat-the'-piece-of land which the  Recreation Commission hopes to get for an  athletic field is not part of the Welcome  Beach watershed, though it is part of the  Adventure film at Twilight  Rousing adventure set in the post-Civil  War period and lots of lively comedy  combine to make "Treasure of  Matecumbe" one of the best all-around  Walt Disney productions in some time.  The film runs February 17 -19 at the  Twilight Theatre.  An excellent cast is headed by Joan  Hackett, who just about steals the picture  with her portrayal of the resourceful  heroine. This is no mean feat, considering  she's up against Peter Ustinov, a noted  stealer of scenes, as a medicine man;  handsome Robert Foxworth as the rugged  hero, and villainous Vic Morrow.  The film is shot against a background  of Kentucky, Northern California and the  Florida Everglades. A really impressive  hurricane and tidal wave sequence brings  the adventure to a climax.  "Treasure of Matecumbe" is rated for  general viewing.  Following that film at the Twilight is  "Death Weekend," which plays February  20-22. The film is rated restricted and  carries the warning of brutal violence and  coarse language throughout.  ���by Mary Tinkley  land adjoining it! The watershed is now in  the process of being transferred to the  Regional Board to be preserved as a  wilderness park.  New owners of the Radcliffe home at  Redrooffs are Bob and Pam Brodgesell  who have been renting the Rafael house at  Seacrest for the past few months. Glenys  Radcliffe and her daughter, Tara, have  moved to Coquitlam.  Bob and Jean Trousdell have returned  home after a holiday in Hawaii. They  spent a week in Waikiki at their favourite  spot near Diamond Head and then flew to  Maui for another week, staying at Lahaina  and renting a car. They drove across the  island to Hana on the east coast and visited  Charles Lindber.gh's grave ��� a simple,  unpretentious memorial in an old churchyard.  One morning they left their hotel at 3:45  a.m. to make the two-hour drive up the  10,000-foot Haleakala mountain, the  largest extinct volcano in the world. It is 20  miles around and 2,720 feet deep. The  weather was good throughout their  holiday,, but warmer in Maui than in  Waikiki. On the whole they were rather  disappointed in Maui, where, they report,  many of the beaches were dirty.  Planning some interesting trips now he  has retired from the C&S Hardware Store,  Bill Swain has just returned from a  holiday in California, accompanied by his'  wife Mildred and Mildred's brother and  sister-in-law, Ernest and Virginia  McAllister of Sechelt. The Swains drove to  San Francisco to the home of a niece,  where the McAllisters had already been  spending Christmas. .  The four of them enjoyed a visit to  Disneyland and visited cousins at  Vacaville, east of San Francisco, who took  them to dinner at the Travis Air Force  Base which was an interesting experience.  They spent a week at Desert Hot Springs  and returned home by way of Las Vegas  where they tried their luck at the casinos  without too much success.  They enjoyed beautiful weather  throughout the trip. Since the Swain's  return home, they had a short visit from  Mrs. Swain's cousin, Gordon Low of s  ��� Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, who was on his  way home after a trip to Sydney,  Australia.  Pre-school course  in Wilson Creek  A program about pre-schoolers,  organized by the Wilson Creek Community  Association, will begin this month.  Workshops for the sharing of skills and  ideas, films, guest speakers and  discussion groups for the airing of  frustrations���- and --the- working -out of  common problems are all in the works.  The program is directed at two groups:  parents of pre-schoolers and those giving  care.  The Wilson Creek project is designed to  give these people a bit more confidence, to  give them some fresh ideas for activities,  games and songs and to enable them to  meet each other to discuss common  problems.  The workshops will be free of charge  and child care will be provided. For further information, call Donna Shugar, 885  2721 or 885-5006.

Bring your ideas and a new  member to this important meeting. Leave your politics at home! We're non-political!  GET INVOLVED FOR YOUR OWN BENEFIT!  (An active community is a healthy one.)  The following quote is from a company introduction, in which the former S.C.R.D. chief  community planner is Involved and whose )ob it is "to expedite plans to approval". This  statement should convince the average property owner that they are affected, like it or  lump it, and should support the Area "A" Property Owners Association, the largest per  capita organization of its kind in all of B.C.  "Successful development of land has, over the years, become an increasingly  difficult and lengthy task." (This must also include building and improvements.)  "The prime reason for this is that projects . . . must include compliance with  governmental regulations of ever increasing complexity. The achievement of  official approvals of projects is now often the major problem ... We believe that  the shift in emphasis has been insufficiently recognized. The result is inadequate  understanding of government and its policies, leading to much frustration for all  parties concerned."  I couldn't have said it better.

PENDER     HARBOUR     COMMUNITY  CLUB  The Pender Harbour Community Club  will continue to operate. At the emergency  meeting last Monday night there were  enough people present to voice the  opinions in favor of the club���a good thing  as some were seriously in favor of locking  the doors and disposing of the assets.

Frank Gough;  Secretary Mrs. Porter; Treas. Jock  Hermon; Custodian Wendy Haddock;  Bingo Committee, June and Mike  Cashaback and Les Hewitt; Membership,  Kay White; Bldg.

BACK EAST you can always tell how  bad the weather is by the amount of  snow on the ground. Out west a sure  sign of winter is white surf on usually  placid Davis Bay.       ��� Timesphoto  From the pulpit  By PASTOR GERRY FOSTER  Last week we noted that the era in  which we are living is described in the  Bible as one that has turned away from  God. And we ended by asking the question,  'Does it matter that you have turned away  from God?' This question is answered for  us in the same chapter of the Bible that we  made reference to in last week's column.  The answer comes to us in these words:  "The wrath of God is being revealed from  heaven against all the godlessness and  wickedness of men who suppress the truth  by their wickedness." The wrath of God  hangs over a generation of "knew God"  but has deliberately buried the truth and,  in fact, has "exchanged the truth of God  for a lie."  It is a serious thing to be under the  judgment of the living God. This is a moral  universe and there are such things as  absolutes. God is holy and His character is  the law of the universe. Therefore we have  'real moral guilt', not just psychological  guilt feelings.  Now you may deny the existence of a  personal-infinite God but if you do you .are  saying there is no absolute. But this would  be inconsistent with your own thinking, for  you, along with everyone else, need  something by which to judge. Or you may  say that man is not significant, that he is  only a machine and his actions are not his  own. In this case man is not responsible  and cannot be justly judged. But do you  really believe that you are nothing but a  big zero?  Because there is an absolute and  because you as an individual are  responsible for your actions, the wrath of  God is to be taken seriously.
