"/'-.  The provisional estimates allow the  village to continue operating until the final  budget'is passed early in the nej-y year.  Significant expenditure changes ffpim;the  1976jgrojected totals include the following:  -The amount of money allocated td  travel and conventions has been raised  from $1,800 to $2,600. Salaries, including  benefits, have gone from $2?,350 to $30,000.  There will be Yteiss > grant money  available.to community groups .as this  amount has decreasVd$100 to $2,000.  Road maintenance has jumped, from  $17,150 to $22,000 but the cost of building  inspection has lessened from $2,870 to  $1,500 since responsibility for this service  has been taken \6veV by the regional  district. The amount available for planning and zoning has gone from $305 to $500  but less than half last year's total will go  ��� towards parks and beaches as the $12,500  allocation has been slashed to $6,000. With  the addition of Chatelach Senior Secondary 'the village contribution towards  school costs has risen from the 1976  amount of $163,259 to $200,000 for 1977.  Another large increase will be seen in  road construction as costs go from $19,000  to $25,000.  ,'���,-'" Under revenue the village expects to  collect more municipal taxes this year  which will increase from $73,364 to $88,000  :and also from provincial per capita grants  ..which rise to"$27,710 from $20,060.  ,,   Budget figures may be changed by  Sechelt aldermen when the allocations are  . reconsidered before their final adoption.  Last week as The Times writer wenWn  to interview Santa Claus, he found the jolly  old elf going over some of the millions of  letters he receives every year just before  Christmas.  Part of the conversation with Santa  Claus was about the letters and the boys  and girls who send them. Often when boys  and girls 'are too young to write their own  letters they ask older sisters or brothers or  their mothers and fathers to write them/  Santa showed some of the many letters  to The Times and said The Times would  print some of them.  The following are the letters with  spelling, punctuation and grammar just  they way they came to Santa Claus;  Dear Santa:  i want Baby Alive that eats and drinks  and Superfection and Jaws. Brad wants*  Evil Kinevil and a toy boat. Love Jennifer  and Bradley.  Dear Santa:  My name is Andrew John. I am two  years old and five months.

Metzler, village of , Gibsons'  representative on the, board, was elected  to fill the vacancy left after former  chairman John McNevin left the area at  the end of November,'������'. ���    t  Metzler told the other directors he was  endorsing incoming Area D representative  Harry Almond and asked his supporters to  ^ vote for. hm*. Almond i.s a former-regional  board Chairman.  Metzler also presented a motion of  notice to the other directors that he would  propose the appointment of a vice-  chairman to take over in the chairman's  absence and to act as an additional signing  authority for the district.  As the last piece of business the  directors gave a vote of thanks to Area D  representative Jim Ironside for his service  on the board over the last two years.  SANTA CLAUS takes a moment out  from talking with local boys and girls  to read some of tho many letters ho  hi\n been sent.' Letters from young  i  people from the Sunshine Coast asked  for u variety of things from, "n new  sister," to, "A $1,000 1)111."  -������.Tfu.espl.oto  Local people had some pre-Christmas  presents for B.C. Ferries; but not the kind  anyone would like to receive.  . The presents were complaints as .a  crowded room of local politicians and area  residents told the. assistant traffic  manager for B.C. Ferries they were  unhappy with the new Howe Sound  schedule and the problems it was causing  the Sunshine Coast.  , Representatives from Sechelt, Gibsons  and Powell River, municipalities, the  Sunshine Coast Regional District, tho  Concerned Citizens ond the Lower Gibsons  Merchants, Association all presented  their grievances, December 16 to Bill  Bouchard and John'Yates, the longdate  terminal agent, at a meeting in the Gibsons council chambers.  Tho meeting was originally to go over  cost sharing arrangements for resident  commuter cards but a discussion of the  new timetable was added to the agenda  after local individuals and citizen groups  protested the changes to ferry authorities  in Victoria.  The main complaints centered around  the loss of the 7:40 a.m, Langdale run and  the lack of consultation with Sunshine  Const communities.before introduction of  the new schedule.  Bouchard explained tho ferry service  was handicapped by a number of constraints Including the fact only two ships  wero assigned to the Howe Sound run.  Another problem, ho added, in that with  only flvo crow shifts each working a seven  and a half hour day the number of sailings  Is limited, especially In'tho early morning.  "Wlint we are trying to do," said  Bouchard, "Is run a ferry service on  clerical work hours,"  , Peter Held of the Concern Citizens  replied to this argument by telling  Bouchard local people understood and  sympathized with the problems Involved  In running the ferries, but, "It appears you  havpft, llttlo or ho consideration for our  problems,"  Held maintained "There Is an enor-  ������ See Page A-4  "?������'  , ���   **�� - ' '''''ppi  '.',*-.

Papers have more obscure ways of  numbering their issues based on the  start up of publication; but this is our  final paper for the year. It's been an  interesting year. It's a year that we  will look at more closely in review in  the first paper of next year, so for now  let us confine our thoughts to the  upcoming holiday season.  It's fortunate that Christmas is  placed near the end of the year;  makes a nice climax and ends 6the  year on a somewhat jolly note.  - It's very unfortunate that there.  are those who tend to make Christmas into a. too frantic time of year  with rushing around and .being too  busy to relax. Too much high power  sales and high pressure from too  many places has a tendency to defeat  all the Peace on Earth, Goodwill  Toward Men that is somewhat more  of a tradition at this, time of the year  Athat setting new records with a  Chargex card.  Gratifyingly this year there has  been fewer of those complaints  reaching us causing us to believe that,  perhaps people are taking it a little  easier and taking the holiday season  at face value more than before.  Speaking.of the holiday season,  The Times will be taking a holiday  next week,., so the first edition of 1977  will be January 5.  If we might be permitted a commercial here, we would like to remind  all our readers and contributors that  we will be closed on January 1,  Saturday- This means that classified  ads, stories, write-ups, information,  letters to the editor, late Christmas  presents and holiday visits have to be  in to us by December 31. to be  recorded in the January 5 paper.  , Speaking on our contributors, we  are remiss during the year, at not  telling our regular, contributors how  much we appreciate, their "fine, work  ���and dedication. They*re great people,  all of meiii; and.your support of them  through information or comments is  greatly appreciated and encouraged.  If your group doesn't report regularly  to us or one of them, perhaps you  should think about appointing a  publicity director who can channel  information to us. You'll find that it  can be a great help to keep the  community informed that way.  To the hundreds of people who  have written letters to the editor,  either bouquets or raspberries, we  say thanks and continue to, do so. ~  v We would like to say a special  thank you to the people in the post  offices and rural routes who make  sure our paper gets to you as promptly as possible. We get first class  service from Our post office people;  . they should be a model for the whole  country.  We would like to wish everyone a.  ; very Merry Christmas and a Happy,  Prosperous and Peaceful New Year.  Thank you.  In what had to be one of the  shortest careers for a columnist,  Jennifer Thompson has announced  she will no longer be writing her  Animal Tales column for The Times.  She's giving it up.for a noble reason,  two of them, in fact.N  She   and   husband   Terry   are  planning to open a record and tape,  shop *in Sunnycrest Mall and all her  Alas, dear readers, it appears I will be  unable to make the scene on the Peninsula  for some time. I might even miss the New  Year's party, damn it. Some gentlemen of  note in the medical profession have  decreed otherwise. Hell of a state of affairs, no?  Don't think you are going to get away  from reading my column, if,I have to stay  here for a while I'll call in my usual to the  Time. Besides, the paper would go broke if  I quit. (Did you catch that Ed.?') Anyway,  on with the show. '  In a few days it will be Christmas and I  guess all of us from young to old have our  own special wishes on this day of days.  Kids of course ore wishing for toys and  goodies and lots of show and adults wish  them luck but say nix on the snow.  Senior citizens pray for an upgrading of  their pensions ahd who can blame them  with tho way the price of commodities is  increasing. The list of course is endless  and wo can only hope some of the wishes  are fulfilled.  I too liave some Christmas wishes. The  most fervent of which is that all my friends  and neighbors in the Pender Harbour  area and in particular Madeira Park get.  treated in the same manner as they havo  treated me. That Is, with much help,  consideration, sympathy and even offors  of money to help tide mc oyer until I was  able to return to work.

Derby,  ���   Secretary (1070).  concerning  infant^ death  Editor: The Times, ���'''  Sir: I write firstly to educate the public  regarding Sudden Infant Death Syndrome  (SIDS), and .secondly, to dispel some  vicious.rumors circulating regarding at  least one of two recent "crib deaths".  Crib death, or Sudden Infant Death  Syndrome as it is more properly known, is  a mysterious killer of completely healthy,  infants, It is quite common, occurring in  two to three of every 1,000 babies, usually  between the ages of one and six months,  (but can occur much less frequently up to  two years of age).  There is absolutely no way of knowing  when this will occur; nor is there any way  of preventing it. The usual story, repeated  time after time, is that of a mother putting  iher healthy, happy infant down tosleepV  On checking the baby some time later, she  finds the infant dead. Contrary to popular  belief, the child has not suffocated and not  choked on vomitus but has died without  struggling, in his sleep. Autopsy  repeatedly shows no cause for the death.  Medical science to date has no answer  despite Intensive Investigation.  There have been two of these infant  deaths in recent weeks on the Peninsula.  The parents are rightfully distraught, and  such .horrible events will havo lasting  effects on any parent involved. In at least  one of the recent cases, vicious, cruel  rumors have been circulated that there;  wos maltreatment of the infant. Theso  liave been filtered back'to the mother,  making her doubly distraught.  As the attending physician, I find  myself compelled to publicly dispel these  distressing rumors. There Is no foundation  for these rumors. This was clearly a case  of SIDS, confirmed by autopsy by a  pathologist at Lions Gate Hospital. Thoro  was ABSOLUTELY NO ABUSE OR  MALTREATMENT INVOLVED. As I  mentioned above, there Is no way a parent  can predict or prevent this extremely  unfortunate event. "'  I think it Is a good tlmo for evoryono,  particularly those Involved ln perpetrating  theso cruel rumors, to consider the effect  .on innocent people when stories may bo  untrue or blown far out of proportion, as  rumors usually are, The next tlmo one  hears a nasty rumor, ho should think twice  nbout repenting It ��� think about tho ugly  aftermath In this enso. >  I would hopo this letter will be pointed  out to anyone known to liavo been involved  in the rumors, to quash the untruths  forever ond allow the devastated mother  to return to some semblance of normal  life.  B,J.Myblll-.iones,M.p.  W.AS THAT a drumroll? I distinctly  t Jieard.a drumroll. At least I hope I did; it  ",would seem appropriate at this time. This,  being the First Annual'Sunshine Coast Don  Morberg Have. A. Merry Christmas  Anyway Column, a tradition in our family  for nearly 72 months.  THERE HAVE, oyer the past year been  - a number of people who through means  foul and fair have.made some kind of an  impression" on me and whom I think  deserve a mention at this time.  Because I don't send out Christmas  Cards (I instead make a donation to my  ���. favorite charity ��� the people who make  Cutty Sark Scotch) I gather a list of folks I  ���would like to remember at Christmas and  present it here. ������,<-������--.-:  I've skipped doing this for the last  '  couple of years for various reasons, so I  thought this year would be a good year to  revive it.

There'll be a little eggnog to quaff and  some goodies to munch on. We'll be  hanging around for a while.  From the pulpit  ,   By PASTOR GERRY FOSTER  One of the big items each Christmas is  gift giving. In fact, some are suggesting  mere is too much of it in our society, that  the commercial side of Christmas is  getting out of hand. Nonetheless the ex-  changeing of gifts is an integral part of this  annual year,end holiday..  . In the next couple of days last minute  shoppers will rush madly through the  stores trying to find that 'perfect' gift for,  the man or woman who has everything.  When Christmas morning arrives children  and adults will gather together to open  their lovely wrapped gifts. It is an exciting  time for. everyone.  But there is.one gift that seems to get.  lost in the shuffle, and in many cases it is  totally ignored each Christmas. That's the  Gift of God. What is the. gift of God? The  Bible says "the gift of God is eternal life  through Jesus Christ pur Lord". Jesus is  God's supreme gift to the, world.   ,  " Your Christmas gifts will be under the  tree, this year but God's gift to .you was  nailed on a tree. Your presents will be  ' wrapped in pretty paper; God's present ���  His son ��� was covered in blodd and insults. His gift did not have a colorful  ribbon around it but a crown of thorns  rested on His head.  : This gift of God is offered to you every  Christmas and all the year, through. Are  you going to receive it this year? The Bible  calls this an indescribable gift. It0 is  wonder .beyond description. Words fail to  . describe the gift of salvation and, on the  other hand, words fail to describe the  foolishness of not receiving Christ as your  ~\Lord and Saviour.    ,  As I wteh you a blessed and meaningful  Christmas let me remind you that  salvation is a free gift which has been  purchased for you and,yours. Make this  the yearyou receive and open The Eternal  Gift.  Squaringly yours  BY MAURICE HEMSTREET  Hello, fellow square dancers. Once  again The Country Stars square dance  club wound up,tho first half of the square  dance season with a Christmas party at  the Sunshine Coast Golf Club, bigger than  ever with over six sets present, there was  a time when I could list all those'who were  there but now I shall just hit on the hi-lites.  Guests were Zeta and.Bruce Corlet  from Gibsons and Karen Jackson also  from Gibsons, we hope, that the evening  proved to be entertaining for you and that  we will see you many more times at  square dancing in the,future.  The food, as always was just great and  we thank those responsible for a well  stocked table and as I said before there are  just too many names and items to put  down/on paper but*'one person who was  ext*ehiely exjcjf^tKwas Alf Smith whose  wishes' finally/" caine true when the  Christmas exchange of presents were  opened and he got a rubber duck. He has  always wanted one for his bath tub but has  been too shy to ask for one. Well I always  did say that he who waits patiently will  eventually be rewarded.  .7 It was really nice to see all of the teen  square dance class there to help us enjoy  our Christmas square dance party and we  hope that you will be back next, year to  help again. Keep up the good work of  Ixyingsoniethingnewinthe entertainment  field.  At the exchange of presents I think  Harry's and mine were rigged because we  both got a box of cracker jack. This can  mean only one thing, that our club thinks  that we are really cracker jacks of callers  (is that being tooooo modest.) Well,  hardly.  ,   The next square dance will be Dec. 31,  * New Years Eve; at the United Church Hall  in Gibsons, 8 p.m. till ? - Jan. 1. ? All  square dancers welcome. v  Once again, it Is time to wish all our  square dance friends, wherever you may  be a very Merry Christmas and a Happy  New Year and may God Bless.  Squaringly yours,  Peg ahd Maurice Hemstreet.

It causes problems here;  it's even more of a "problem in Powell  River." X  , IThe mayor of Powell Kiver, Dave Hart, 1  t01d the meeting the bus that catches the  10:15 a.m. sailing at Saltery Bay now can't  Wave Langdale until 2:45 p,m. "There is  just no way they can catch the 12:25 p.m.  sailing," Hart said and added the Powell  Rfver mail courier was having the same  difficulty. ".'He is limited to catching the t  '10:15  a.m.   run   because   of  security '  arrangements. Both the bus and mail  truck waste two hours just sitting on the  Peninsula   waiting   for   the   Langdale'  ferry."  Jim Court, a Powell River alderman  who accompanied Hart to, the Gibsons  meetings, said he had come over on the  10.15 a.m. sailing that morning and had  talked to the driver of the mail truck who .  complained it was costing his serviceman  additional $60 a day in lost time.      >  {(CoiiVt then told the ferry representatives that if the ordinary person -'drives  like hell down the Peninsula you can just  catch the 12:25 p.m. ferry."  ^Court said if both ferries are on time  then there is just over an hour to reach  Langdale and "this creates a traffic  hazard... today we were passed by people  going over double lines, everything. Your  old schedule," the alderman told  Bouchard, "claimed the easy driving time  was an hour and 45 minutes."  <But Court affirmed his main complaint  with B.C. Ferries was that he had understood "we were to be consulted if there  was going to be any major change in  scheduling, and I think this change is  drastic, it's just been thrown in our laps."  Bill Edney, president of the Lower  Gibsons Merchants Association, in a well  documented presentation, told the ferry  officials "there is a need for the government to provide a reasonable service." He  and other Gibsons businessmen "were  rather stunned to think these steps were  taken with no prior consultation."  His association, said the president, was  particularly worried about the cancelation of the 7:40 a.m. ferry as this  sailing carried many trucks and regular  commuters. Edney added that he personally took this sailing three times a week  and it was always well used' as ��� people  arrived in Vancouver at a reasonable  hour. "If you take the 6:45 a.m., Bouchard  was told by Edney, "you add to the  morning traffic congestion on the other  side, you have to get up an hour earlier and  you arrived at your destination half an  hour too soon."  Edney said that speaking privately as a  grocer, his milk, bread and meat used to  come off the 6:30 a.m. ferry from Hor- :  seshoje Bay and arrived at his store in time -  to be put out before 3 a.m. Under the new  schedule he noted 'this Was no longer '  possible.    \ ..���/v i'.. ,   ,;  "  He also added some Gibsons residents  had expressed concern about getting to ,  their medical and hospital appointments *  in Vancouver as they were used to taking -  Jhe 7:40"a.m. ferry to^be there by 9 a.m.  Now, said Edney they will either have to  arrive too early or far too late. '   ,   .    ���  ' "You strike at the very Heart of our ;.  basic needs when you remove the 7:40',  a.m. sailing," Edney concluded. ' -  Regional Board Chairman Jim Metzler  said "somewhere in that time spot"  between 6:45 a.m. and 9 a.m. "we need  another ferry."  But, replied Bouchard, there is only one  ferry running in the early morning as a  crew shift has been laid off and the ship  requires ta turnaround time of just over  two hours. To put on more ferries, the  assistant *traffie manager maintained, it  would be necessary to hire more workers.  ,,'  The regional board director for Area B,  Peter Hoemberg, said the real problem is  "whether the Sunshine Coast is getting the  service it requires. I eannotescape feeling  that'after going through the tremendous  hassle last summer over the resident  beards, the ferries are now getting their  , own back."  Hoemberg said ferries personnel had  been repeatedly invited to attend, the  regional district's technical planning  committee; they liad only appeared once  and that was "by pure accident."  Bouchard answered it must have been  by accident as he had never received any  notice of the meetings.  Hoemberg   replied   that   everyone  present was aware of the problems in-,  vdlved in running the ferries, "but we  would like to have the same type of consideration from you as we are prepared to '  give."  Several people speaking at the meeting  attempted to get a committment from  Bouchard that the government would  review the new schedule. They were told  "schedules are never set in concrete, we  can adjust them and we do several times a  year." Bouchard said the situation on the  Sunshine Coast was more complex than  most because both the Howe Sound and the  Jervis Inlet crossings were involved.  "Where are we now? What's the next  step?" Don Pearsell of the Concerned  Citizens then asked Bouchard. He replied  all he could do was take the information he  had received at' the. meeting-^back to  Victoria and look at it in relatiWto ship  schedules and shift crews. . ��� / -^ Y~" ���  The other .Concerned y Citizens  spokesman Peter Reid said in future local  residents would like a "committment"  from the ferries they would be consulted  Page A-4     ��� \ the Peninsula Times  Wednesday, December 22.1076  Three sesit  to hospital  after mishap  before any more changes took placed  Added Hoemberg,1 "there seems to be  little willingness on the part of the ferries,  to have* an ongoing communication with  the areas they serve. We could eliminate a -  lot of problems^ we talked to each other a  little more."  One of the last items discussed at the  meeting was the problem of parking at  . both the Langdale and Horseshoe Bay terminals.  Jim Metzler raised the issue when he  told Bouchard of complaints  he  had  . received from a Peninsula resident who .  commutes each day to Vancouver -and  pays over $600 a year in parking fees.  Metzler said the man would have to move  unless something was done about the,  situation.  Said Hoemberg, "the ferries made a  grave mistake in raising parking fees as  this discourages people from leaving their  cars and going aboard as foot passengers.  i There is no reason parking can't be free,,  theonly waytogetto.Langdaleisbycar;" ���  Bouchard inquired if they were'  requesting special treatment for Langdale,  over other ferry terminals and was told  this was an unfair comparison to make,as  bus service was available to both Horseshoe Bay and Tsawwassen. Later that7  evening at the regional district meeting  Metzler was questioned if anything had  come of the meeting with Bouchard. He  replied "I felt we got a committment of  sorts" that something would be done about  an additional early morning sailing.  Director Hoemberg disagreed saying  "my  impression was  the   only  com-  , mittiriient wa�� to go ba?k to Victoria with*.  bur complaints.":-"��� *���*-��> -j  Said Sechelt representative Morgan;,  ' Thompson speaking of the new timetable',  "I get the impression I'm looking at a,  schedule 15 years old."  "Twenty years old" concluded another--  of the directors.  BILL BOUCHARD, the assistant  ttaffic manager for B.C. Ferries and  John Yates, the Langdale terminal t  agent, listen closely as regional  director. Peter Hoemberg states his  objection to-"-the-newly introduced  Howe,Sound, ferry..schedule. After  meeting last, week with local  politicians and area residents Bouchard was unable to promise more  sailings would be added to the  timetable. _ Timesphoto  MORE ABOUT . ..  o Elves9 Aanipers  ���From Page A-l  Variety Foods, Marcraft, Sechelt, Pajak  Electronics Co.

BCLAHOWA TILLICUM  ,       merry Christmas from thi  sechelt indian band council an*> staff  V  \^^1 PageA-8 The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, December 22,1976  Christian Science  For many tired Christmas shoppers,  even in our present affluent society,,_the ���_  mad shopping spree of finding and sending  our Christmas gifts, with the eventual,  monetary reckoning in th6 New Year, is  more of a heartache than a pleasurable  experience.  v If we would take a few moments to still -  the tumult of our thoughts and think back  to the origin of this Christmas giving, we  can proceed with gratitude,, calm thinking,  and pleasure.  Let us include with our material gifts a  spiritual gift, an uplifting thought that can  be shared and treasured, long after the  material is forgotten. ' There is no  monetary reckoning with this spiritual  gift, and the only returns are love and kind |*��  memories. When you give a present, the f c  receiver has it and you haven't, butwhen  you give an uplifting thought, you both  share it and it is spontaneously multiplied.  In the words of a lovely hymn, "All  perfect gifts are from above, and all our  blessings show .. The amplitude of God's  dear love which every heart may know".  Carrying gifts to the Bethlehem Babe  by the wisemen of old was not a chore, it  was a pleasurable experience; a gift of  love and appreciation to one they had  never seen before, but to Whom their  spiritual consciousness revealed would be  the Word of. God made manifest in the  flesh; the man Christ Jesus.  In our giving then, let us think back to  those wisemen of old and let our giving be  emblematical of the spiritual thought that  motivated those men to follow the star  with gifts to the Bethlehem Babe.  Let      ot f reet the origin of Christ    MADE *N ROBERTS CREEK but    sale at last Saturday's Cold Mountain^  mas.   Let" it ��not  become  merely  a"   iiied . in   ^^^ ���.^,^<^*  traditional time,to salve our consciences   examines one of the many pieces for   ? ,7   ^  Y:;;si::gi;C:^;!Y7ll  with mere merrimaking and needless gift  froiii  giving. ���.  Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer and  founder of Christian Science, wrote in  Miscellany, "Christmas to me is the  reminder of God's great gift ��� His  spiritual idea, man and the universe ��� a  gift which so transcends mortal, material,  sensual giving that the merriment, mad  ambition, rivalry, and ritual of our  common Christmas seem a mockery in  mimicry of the real worship in commemoration of Christ's coming".  May we extend to each and everyone of  you our very best wishes for your happiness this Holiday Season and all through  the New Year. Please accept our grateful  thanks for your past patronage, may we be  of service to you again and for many years  to come. ��� Miss Bee's, Sechelt.

Search am  ie improved  B  Requesting action '-before something  fatal happens" 10 Langdale residents have  sent a letter to the regional' board asking  that'a large, water filled hole adjacent to  their elementary school be either filled or  cordoned off.  Their letter maintains a two year old  child has already been "dragged out of the  pool" and "those of us with small children  are very concerned that a child may  drown in the water."  According to the residents the hole was  originally dug as a house foundation three  years ago and then left when the owner did  nofcgo ahead with his plans. The regional  district has advised their staff to send a  letter to the property owner ordering him  to either fill the hole or fence it in accordance with National Building Code  regulations.  mm  Polder ppf^Ji^^winnjpg.'.ticHet. in the,  Gibsons l4PjC,s '4(KJi Draw/ ,is Robert  Latham whose lucky -number was drawn  by Cathy Rietze in the village branch of  the Bank of Montreal.  The Comox air base will get two improved helicopters for coastal search and  rescue operations, as part of a $40 million  expansion program announced last week  by Defence Minister Barney Danson.  The two helicopters will be the only  direct benefit to search and rescue contingencies in the Powell River area> apart  from the three Labrador helicopters and  three Buffalo fixed wing aircraft already  stationed at Comox.  *��� <  Lt. (N.).Djpk Pepper of the,regional  informatioiPoffice in Victoria told The  Times that the two additional helicopters  may not arrive in Comox for another two  or three years.  "It's time to take some time," he said.  "We're talking about aircraft we've had in  storage for a while." He said the two units  would have to be brought up to Labrador  standard and then further improved for  greater capabilities.  The two helicopters will be equipped  with weather and search radar equipment  for night and over-water operations, Lt.  Pepper said, as well as a night search light  and improved navigation system. The  craft will have automatic hover  capability, and other mechanical  refinements.  Lt. Pepper^al��Jh��.Tih^kLabrador  , helicopters now operating from Comox are  "somewhat limited". He said they can't  operate at night and are hampered by  rough weather.  Labrador helicopters can operate  within a 250-mile radius of the base  without refueling (depending on weather  and load conditions), and at that limit can  spend up to 30 minutes "task time".

Design, engineering and financing  costs will take up the remaining $7,000.  The $67,937 revenue is to be collected  .from the regional district and the village  of Sechelt.  In a December 13 letter to the board the  village of Gibsons reaffirmed they would  not contribute towards the function during  the 1977 budget year. The reason given  was the village had other financial committments they had to meet but would  reconsider their position for 1978.

Those members who had met Mrs. Wilson  at the Area Conference held last spring in  Sechelt, were delighted to renew  acquaintenance with her.  The outgoing President, Mrs. Monk,  closed the meeting with an expression of  thanks to all who have so ably supported  her during her term of office.

The estimate was contained in a brief  presented to the December 9 meeting of  the school board by Karin Hoemberg, the  local continuing education co-ordinator.  She blames the decrease on insufficient  advertising and lack of classroom space  due to the late opening of Chatelech Junior  Secondary and the fire at the Pender  Harbour Secondary school.  Programs planned for the spring of 1977  include Cancerfacts for women, how to  feed your baby before and after birth,  poetry, for fun, effective parenting,  bookkeeping for small businesses, small  engine repair, stop smoking and other  courses requested by local residents.  Hoemberg told the board she is still  having trouble acquiring sufficient space  for the classes, especially in the Gibsons  area.  Sixteen Sunshine Coast adults wrote the  Grade 12 equivalency tests in November  and the results are expected this month.

Beside the wigwam of  Chief Swift Arrow, Indian brave, Erin  Kelly, sat watching the enactment of the  story of the coming of the first missionary  to the Huron Indians. Dominique Martel  played the part of the Chief, with Paisley  Rader as his wife, Silver Cloud and Steven  North and Tracy Laakso as his two sons,  Gray Hawk and Shu-Shu-Me. Kirby North  made an impressive Father de Brebeuf  and the narrators were Jamie Graham,  Sonja Sorensen and Geoffry Grognet. The  play was directed by Peggy Connor with  the assistance of Lynn Jorgensen.  In a manger' scene pageant which  followed, the narrator was Christy Hawes  and the parts of Joseph and Mary were  played by Erin Kelly and Erica Renouf.  Dominique Martel, Ronald Kieselbach and  Jamie Graham were shepherds and Kenny  Sorensen, Paisely Rader and Danny  Richardson were the Three Wise Men, A  newcomer to Halfmoon Bay who had been  at the school for only, two weeks was Bret  Christensen who held his own as an Indian  Brave and as a bellringer in the orchestra.  Guest artiste was Mrs. Katherine Kelly  who delighted the audience with her  unaccompanied singing of three songs.  Parents joined in the carol singing led by  Mrs. Helen Sorensen and Mrs. T.

It follows the styles of its predecessors  ��� in that it merely repeats the words of those  interviewed,   those   who   .experienced  history-in-the-making.  Doubleday reports Broadfoot's own  words in the preface. "I am��not a  historian. I am a person who travels  across the country and listens.to people  . talk about themselves. I .call rnyselJL.a?  chronicler, a gatherer of 'stories, a  collector of reminiscences ��� before it is  too late."  Many history books are so academic  that they are useful only for information  seekers and not those who want to relive  the human experience of the past. The fact  that Broadfoot's books are so popular is  that he has not forgotten that it is the ordinary citizen and not the political  leadership that moves a country along-like  the hundred legs under the centipede. In  these days on national unrest and talk of  withdrawal from the rest of the country, it  might be a good exercise in equilibrium to  read books such as these. If anything at all  is owed our ancestors, we should at least  consider the struggle they maintained to  make this land ours.  THE PIONEER YEARS. tells about  people who came hoping to find a mecca  that would grow lush produce and support  animal husbandry (according to the advertising that brought them here) and  found instead hardships that forced them  to live in sod houses, endure loneliness in  vast areas of nothing, and call up all the  strength they could muster to make a good  ' life for their children. When you read these  stories you will find many of them the  same ones you heard at the knees of your  grandparents.  In choosing books for young children,  you may look for one of two things: a good  story or a' good picture book. If you are  very fortunate, you may find one that fits  both requirements. Take,a little time and-  read the book through, noting the  vocabulary if It is to be read by the  youngster and. seeing that tho print size is  adequate for tho age level of your child.  The story line should be clear and enjoy  a logical progression to a satisfying  conclusion. The illustrations should bo  colourful and not Interfere with the print.  Tho binding of the book should be stitched  not Just glued. Tho cover should be sturdy  for all tho bundling it will get. You might  consult a librarian or teacher to find the  children's latest lovo. In books. Llttlo ones  enjoy repetition In stories so that they may  "toll" the Uile, too.  ���by Mary Tinkkty  their parents and friends with coffee and  cake.

Carpet bowling will start up again on  Monday, January 3 at 1:30 p.m. when the  men will undoubtedly seek their revenge.  However, with the reputation of Halfmoon  Bay women for being the best cooks in the  world, by January 3 the men should be so  well fed and complacent that we predict  another victory for the women!

PANDER HARBOUR LIONS CLUB
Last week the Pender Harbour Lions
Club had their annual Christmas Party
and Myrtle Page and I catered to it. They
even had Santa Claus present, sang
Christmas hymns and carols and really
had an old fashioned party with a modern
touch. Mrs. Muriel Crosby handed out the
gifts, so Santa could present them and
even had gifts for us. By the way,,Santa
was none other than Harry Morrison.
ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION BR. 112
~ Those people wishing to attend the New
Year's Dance at the Royal Canadian.

which are available at the bar,
SAD NEWS
Last week May Widman lost her father
who was well known to many residents in
the Harbour. Mr. Delaney was 93 years of
age and was living in Vernon when he
passed away. Those who will remember
him will recall what an excellent dancer
he was and how he enjoyed attending the
various social events in the Harbour.
MADEIRA PARK POST OFFICE
If anyone has noticed and wondered
who did it, the decorations in bur local Post
Office were all done by the Pender Harbour Serendipity Play School.

A MESSAGE FROM YOUR COLUMNIST
THE SNOOP
if I can find any news around the
Harbour by Dec. 22 there will be another
, column, otherwise I will not be writing for
some weeks as I am going south west with
the birds for a while on holidays. I wish all
my readers A Very Merry Christmas And
A Happy New Year, By the way, I was jtold
to make a correction (The Lions donated
$50 to the Community Club, not $150.) It's
corrected, Muriel... .-'*---
THANK YOU
Frank Campbell would like to thank all
his friends and also everyone who was so
kind to him when he had the serious accident several months ago. He has 'been
staying ih Vancouver with his sister and is.
coming along fine now. He will be in the
Harbour during the Christmas week.
. It might be a good idea if 'the one that
got away' was a ling cod.
On December 1, all commercial and
sport fishing for ling cod was closed and it
will remain closed until March 1 or longer.
Fisheries officer Ray Kraft said the
season is scheduled to re-open March 1,
"but I may extend the season in certain
areas or perhaps for scuba divers. It might
be a good idea if people check with this
officer and watch for announcements
about that time."
The closure extends for the full gulf
area.
Fishing is. closed to allow the fish to
mate and lay eggs.

CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEA , *��7->       -J? -/  "��9*  he Jteninsula !mm>  Section C  Wednesday, December 22,1976  Pages 1-4  EASILY JUMPING the tour feet off f nysicai * uness aervice wmcn mey  theground required to make it to the hope will make local residents more  counter top, Susan Milburn and Joy aware of the benefits of regular  Smith discuss the new Sunshine Coast exercise.                   ��� Timesphoto-  If four fitness enthusiasts have their  way Sunshine Coast residents will be  jogging, stretching, roller skating and  / karating themselves1 into Jthe new year.  Robi Peters, Joy Smith, Roxanne Reid  and Susan Milburn make up the recently  formed Sunshine Coast Physical Fitness  Service, a non-profit group funded with the  help of LIP money and sponsored by the  Community Resource Society and the  Continuing Education Centre.  ��� The Fitness Service hopes to. offer'  exercise, special interest and craft classes  from January through to next June when  their grant runs out.  The lessons, most free of charge, will  be conducted jui area schools, community  halls and in vthe case of the joggers, on  local roads.  The idea, says co-ordinator Susan  Milburn, is to really interest people in  their health.  "We want our classes to be relaxed and  interesting and fun. There will be no  pressure put on people. If someone misses  one class we don't want them to feel guilty  and never come back."  One of the first exercise classes will  begin January 10 at the Sechelt Indian  Band Community Hall and the next day at  the Mental Health Unit in Gibsons. Called.  'Take a Break' it will be offered during the  lunch hour and the workouts "will promote  good breathing habits and muscle "anil  joint flexibility," says Milburn who'will be  the instructor.      *  "We can go a week without food but  only a matter of minutes without oxygen,"  she explains "and most people don't  realize how important oxygen is to our  bodily functions. It is only natural if we  improve our daily oxygen intake we will  '   feel and look better."  Milburn hopes her class will attract  people who find themselves sitting behind  a desk all day and who rarely get the  chance to exercise properly. Some activities-of the Fitness Serv|ce, will be  directed specifically towards people with  heart diseases and high blood pressure  and other classes will try and appeal to  women in the 20 to 30 age bracket.  These are .the women, says Milburn  who often have young children to look  after so she is trying to arrange  babysitting so the mothers can attend her  lessons.  Joy Smith, the program's secretary,  reports that since she started working in  the Fitness Services' Sechelt office she has  virtually given up smoking, jogs every day  and feels "incredibly well.  "When we get underway next month,"  she says," I'm going to all my neighbours  and getting them to join us." -  The January program in Pender -  Harbour will be supervised by Robi Peters  (883-9923) and the following activities have  been confirmed: Floor hockey in the  community hall, Tuesday nights from 7  p.m. to 91 p.m.; basketball in the community hall, Sunday night from 7:30 p.m.  to 9 p.m.; badminton in the community  hall, Monday from 4 p.m: to 6 p.m.; roller  skating (up to age 13)'v Madeira Park  Elementary School, Saturday from 2 p.m.  to 4 p.m.  In Sechelt and Gibsons the 'Take a  Break' classes will be offered at the  Sechelt Indian Band Hall Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 12 p.m. to 12:45  p.m. and at the Mental Health tJnit in  Gibsons on Tuesday and Friday at the  same time.  A Stretch Class will be held in the activity room of Sechelt Elementary School  Monday from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 pirn. The  class will be offered in the kindergarten  room of Gibsons Elemennary School  ;tTuesday at the same time.  An 'A'ctibh~B.C.1" workshop; will be  sponsored at Elphinstone Senior Secon-  , dary on January 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  A Fitness Symposium will be held at  Chatelech Senior Secondary February 12  from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Milburn would also like to start film  nights, post natal exercise classes, aerobics  dance, archery, karate and a number of  other programs for which she is looking  for volunteer instructors. She can be  reached at the Fitness Service of f ices or at  885-3611 for further information about any  of the exercise programs.  Just a reminder that from December  28th on, all Christmas Cards will be at half  price. ��� Miss Bee's, Sechelt.  A revised draft of the Sechelt vicinity  plan has been, distributed to members of  the village council who will^consider it in  full at a meeting early in January,  The purpose of the plan as specified in  the guidelines, "is to place on record a  statement,about the.type of community  the people of the region wish to obtain in  the Sechelt vicinity and how such a  community can be achieved."  In discussing the plan at the December.  i.  Development  unacceptable  The Sunshine Coast Regional District  has told the developers of the proposed  Secret Cove Marina their complex is  unacceptable in its current form.  However the regional directors stated  at their December 16 meeting they were  prepared to reconsider their decision if the  residential density for the site was  reduced   while   retaining  the   current  . marina plans "since there is a pressing  need for (marina) facilities of this type  along the "coast." . ��� ^  The directors noted that at a November  28 public hearing into the development  "all but one of the speakers had been  opposed to the contract in its present form,  especially . the high density of the  residential units and the visual impact on  Secret Cove."  Bill Warner, a Vancouver lawyer  retained  by   Secret   Cover' residents,  - restated their objections at the board  meeting last week. In particular, said  Warner, people'felt the planned housing  units were too close together for the type of  terrain involved arid there was also fear of  adverse effects on the foreshore if a  dramatic increase in use was permitted in  the cove.      v    .  Warner said he saw no reason to increase local moorage as it was already  adequate to serve the whole area.  Fitness. In your hen *1 yroi know  it's right.  1 (PI.

Specifically, Thompson said guidelines  for the Porpoise Bay area were still to be  submitted by Wolff Bauer, a foreshore  expert retained by the Sunshine Coast  Regional, District to study the local  coastline.  Representatives of the village of  Sechelt, the Sechelt Indian Band and the  regional district have been working on the  plan since -the middle of 1975.  Paul Moritz, planner for the regional  district, expects the study will go tq public  hearing in February or March after the  interim recommendations have been fully  studied by the three local governments  affected by the report. Moritz too believes  the present draft will probably undergo  many changes before it is adopted in its  final form.  "If someone had told me in 1975," said  Moritz, "that we would still be working on  the vicinity plan in 1977, I'd never have  believed them."
