 A  *  simple guide to your assessment notice  Local property owners will begin  receiving assessment notices from Victoria this week, and for the first time they  will be able to compare the fairness of  their assessment to that of their neighbours'.  Some assessments will go up, some will  go down, and some will remain unchanged. It is still too early to predict what  effect this will have on an individual's  taxes, but in theory the total tax burden  should be more fairly distributed than it  has been in past years,,  Assessment notices received in the next  week or so will show the actual values of a  property owner's land! and buildings. This  figure is an estimate of the property's  market value based on recent selling  prices of other properties of a similar size,  quality and location.  Also shown on the assessment notice is  the assessed value of the property. This is  the figure which will be used to determine  the property's taxes. The assessed value  will be 15 per cent of the actual value for  residential properties, 25 per cent for  commercial properties and ft) per cent for  industrial properties.  According to Area Assessor Raymond  Winterburn, few properties on the  peninsula have been seriously underassessed. As a general rule, however,  older residences will be more likely to  receive assessment increases than newer  ones.  Property assessments were frozen by  the provincial government in 1974, and  while buildings constructed, since then  have reflected soaring market values in  their assessments, previously-set  assessments have remained unchanged.  A property owner whose assessment  increases by more than 10 per cent will  have the increase phased-in over a four  year period. The phase-in provision applies only to residential and commercial  properties.  Although the assessment changes will  undoubtedly lead to some taxpayers  paying more and others paying less than  previously, the total amount of property  taxes collected from this area is dependent  on the budgets which will be set by the  local taxing authorities (the two village  councils, the regional district and the  school district).  That works in this way:  A taxing authority's mill rate is applied  against a property's assessed value to  figure the taxes on that property. The rate  of one mill equals $1 in taxes for each  ' $1,000 of assessed vqlue. For example, if  the mill rate is set at 10, and the assessed  value is $20,000, taxes would amount to  $200.  To arrive at a mill rate for a given year,  the taxing authority estimates how much  money it needs for the year (the budget).  It decides how much of the budget must  come from property taxes (some comes  from grants and other sources), and  divides this figure by the total assessed  value of all property in the area.  So, if the total assessment of an area is  $6 million, and if the amount computed by  a municipal council to be raised by  property taxes is $72,000, then $72,000  would be divided by $6 million to produce a  result of 0.012, or 12 mills. Council would  then set the mill rate for that year at 12  mills.  The    new    system   of    property  assessment will be applied this year to \j  almost every one of the 900,000 properties  in B.C. subject to local and school taxes.  The sytem is being reformed, basically,  because it is, a complicated mess.  After years of political interference,  the system has reached the point at which  assessed values often bear no relation to  ENINSULA  market values, ahd properties of similar  value may have very different  assessments.  In aU B.C. communities, there are two  authorities setting .assessed values and,  thus, two figures appear on the  assessment notice. One figure is for  ���Seepage A-7  2nd Class Mail  Registration No. 1142.  Serving the Sunshine Coast, (Howe Sound to Jervis Inlet), including Port Mellon, Hopkins Landing.

Volume 16 ��� No. 1  Wednesday, November 30, 1977  A little bit of fallen snow  causes lots of trouble  Victoria delay stalls  Pender school work  An early winter snowfall blanketed the  Sunshine Coast last Wednesday -- too  early for many motorists, who despifej  advance warnings were caught without  snow tires.  Local towing services reported that at  least 35 vehicles were retrieved from  ditches and roadsides as drivers from Port  Mellon to Egmont found their cars and  trucks moving along icy roads in every  direction but straight ahead.  A spokesman for St. Mary's Hospital  said no serious injuries were reported as a  result of the snow. "We had a couple of  broken hips from falls and a few  whiplashes, but that's about all," she said.  The official Gower Point weather  reporting station recorded 5.1 centimeters  Construction at the new Pender Harbour Secondary school has ground to a'halt  and local school officials are blaming a  "discourteous" Ministry of Education for  the work stoppage.  Trustees have been waiting since  September to call tenders for tht? school's  completion, and so far the delay has cost  the district $20,000.  According to Secretary-Treasurer Roy  Mills, the problem began when it was  discovered fire insurance from the  original building was not sufficient to  cover the replacement cost.  The high school burned down in September, 1976, and since then pupils have  been studying in portable classrooms.  Acting on the ministry's advice,  trustees decided to postpone additions to  the Bowen Islaiicl and Elphinstoi|e schools  and use the^p,000 saved to finish the  Pender Harboji��;school.  ���A  tbescho  $20,000 it was estimated the delay had  caused the board due to rapidly escalating  costs.        /  District Superintendent John Denley  said the postponement was seriously affecting the morale of Pender Harbour  students who are without the use of a gym  and specialized classrooms.  The board .aigreed to send a telegram to  the ministry Friday, over Fisher's  signature after Mills pointed out that  inquiries from his office were ignored.  On Friday afternoon Mills received a  reply to Fisher's telegram saying McGeer  would approve the funding resolution  November 28.  "But that's just a hope, not a promise,"  Mills told the Times.  The Secretary-Treasurer had some  harsh words for the government  bureaucracy. *  "They are always talking about et  reMtytion*!^ ficiency.

Billy Ellis, representing Hydro, told  Regional Board members that the right-of-  way route across the Sunshine Coast to  Vancouver Island was selected because It  represents the only practical corridor for  the project, which will eventually include  two 500 kilovolt lines.  In response to questioning by Mike  Humphries, an Islnnds Trust representative, Ellis said tliat routing the line  somewhere through this area, with a  mainland terminus at Cape Cockburn, is  "not negotiable."  The exact routing of the lino as lt  crosses the penlnsulu is open to discussion,  however, Ellis said.  He was confronted by a group of  Sakinaw Lake summer residents who  objected strongly to a consultant's report  prepared for Hydro which suggests an  overhead crossing of the lake.  One of the Sakinaw Ijike property  owners, Bruce Barclay of Vancouver,  criticized the consulting firm, Beak  Consultants, for not talking to residents In  the area before preparing the recom-  mendatloas.  He was told, however, that the report  was Intended to deal primarily with  technical data relating to geographic,  environmental and oconomlc factors and  that public input would Ik; sought dining  the next stage of the evaluation process.  In response to another question from  Humphries, Hydro spokesmen  acknowledged thnt lasufflclent research  lias been done Into the .possible effects of  such high voltage lines on persons living  nnd working near them. Howovor, said  Kills, "if there are any biological or  physiological effect*, they are apparently  very small and non-cumulative."  Hydro officials also stated that the  proponed tle-ln between the Cheekye line  and the Sunshine Coast's present 13d kv  line would be for back-up purposes In an  emergency.  Public meetings to discuss tlie proposal  will lie set at a later date by the Heglonnl  District.  k  ���V  ^%t/ mam  THERE WERE MANY impassable  .spots on the peninsula Wednesday as  a Pacific storm dumped 5.1 cm of  snow  on  the  Sunshine   Const  but  pcrhups the worst was tho Davis Bay  hill, Most motorists simply gave up  and waited for tho snowplow but a few  hardy .soul.4., Including Drew McKee,  above, took a run at the Icy slope,  McKee didn't quite make it.

Snowfall of three inches or more was  reported from unofficial sources in other  areas.  Gibsons and Sechelt RCMP reported a  total of 17 motor vehicle accidents Wednesday and Thursday, but no serious injuries.  One car slid off Gower Point Road and  rolled over several times. The car was "a  write-off, but the driver wasn't hurt," a  Gibsons RCMP spokesman said.  Sechelt police reported a two-car  collision Wednesday near the Wakefield  Inn resulted in a total of $3,000 damage to  the vehicles, but no injuries.  A salt truck hit a parked car on the  Granthams hill.  A woman and her baby were trapped  for a brief period after their car went Off  the road and flipped onto its side on  Ratportage Hill in Roberts Creek. They  were rescued by two off-duty Gibsons  RCMP officers.  Police described the major trouble  spots as the Davis Bay, North Road,  GranthamJ and Langdale hills. Only two  four-Whee|\drive vehicles made it up the  Langdatejnill during a three hour period,  and workers leaving for the 3 p.m. shift at  Port Mfhph were unable to arrive until 7  p.m. ./"^"- -   " "������*������'- ������ ���  School bus drivers were able to complete only part of their routes in most  areas and never managed to reach some  schools at all, leaving principals and  teachers to arrange whatever alternate  transportation they could for the students.  Driver Jamie Dixon, carrying a  busload of Chatelech Junior Secondary  and Sechelt Elementary students, said he  was stopped by RCMP just at the Selma  Park boundary and told that the highway  was closed because of stranded cars  blocking the road. The students had to  walk home from that point or try their luck  in hitching a ride from one of the few  moving vehicles. Some of the Chatelech  students had to go as far as Roberts Creek,  Dixon said.  With Dixon's run ending at Selma Park,  he never reached his next pickup point at  Roberts Creek Elementary.  Principal Bob Wetmore at that school  said, "We waited for the buses until about  4, and then some of the older .students  * began walking the younger ones home."  Wetmore was still at the school at 6:.30  p.m., arranging transportation for other  children.  At that, he left school an hour earlier  than Principal Verne Wishlove at Madeira  Park Elementary. A dairy truck  jackknifed at the Pender Harbour  waterworks corner, blocking tlie highway  in both dircctloas for several hours.  Wishlove said he finally arranged for  parent Richard Tomkies to meet him on  tlie south side of the truck and to carry  home a carload of Halfmoon Bay  youngsters.  Similar little dramas were repeated up  and down tlie coast.  Wendy Ecclesal the Wilson Creek Day  Care Centre found herself with nine preschoolers, "so we had a slumber party."  Eccles said the Minibus coming to pick  up one child "had a slight accident, then a  mother coming to pick up her child went  Into a ditch. We figured that was enough.  "We didn't tell the kids they were  stranded. We just said, 'We're going to  have a party, and we'll get you home in the  morning.' "  Pender Harbour Secondary Principal  Frank Holmes said his buses were "late  and slow, but they all made It except the  Hnlfmoon Bay bus. I finally drove some  kids home around 0 p.m. About six others  were bllletted In homes around here. You  have to give u lot of praise to tho school bus  drivers."  At Elphinstone, Principal Don Montgomery said tliat by (i p.m. all but about 15  students hnd made their way home by one  means or another. Elphlastono students  from Port Mellon stayed overnight wllh  friends In Gibsons.

Hydro  officials and the Gibsons Wildlife Club, the  Sechelt Rod and Gun Club and the  Fishermen's Union held recently in  Gibsons. This seems to us to be a strange  way of encouraging organizations to let  the public know about their activities  through the medium of the press, but  maybe ours is not to reason why. You can  bet, however, that if this had been a public  meeting with the inevitable excited people  jumping up and down and yelling at each  other, the meeting would have hit the front  pages. As it was, because it was an orderly  and well conducted meeting nobody  thought it was worth mentioning.  It is generally understood that a better  understanding of problems involving the  public and government-run. organizations  can be reached by talking face-to-fa'ce  with the people involved in making  decisions, rather than by letters and indirect methods of communication. This is  precisely what this meeting was all about.  Nobody really expected B.C. Hydro to  come out and say, "We won't spray  defoilants any more" and neither did they  expect any startling revelations to be  made by either B.C. Hydro or for that  matter the representatives from the clubs.  I think lean say here that the meeting  did achieve its objectives and that at least  three suggestions put forward by the clubs  were accepted by B.C. Hydro.     '  First, that the clubs volunteer their  services to look after the fish-bearing  creeks which cross the right of way. This  was an idea which orginatedwith the clubs  and not, as one paper suggests, by B.C.  Hydro.  The second idea was that the clubs take  their samples of water after the spray  program and submit them for analysis by  an independent lab. This, weithink is an  excellent idea and one which will be  followed up. '  The third idea was that a local contractor who states that he can clean up the  right of way to standards required by B.C.  Hydro for considerably lessthan;.aj.vthing  that B.C. Hydro officials had been quoted  previously, would be looked into and  possibly acted upon. If this idea is accepted, it could mean that the spray  program, which is used mainly for  economic reasons, would not be  necessary.  We feel that the public are well able to  make up their minds on matters like these,  rather than have the news media make it  up for them either by not attending a  meeting at all or by attending and-then not  reporting it, the implication being, of  course, that there was nothing worth  reporting.  I think we should take the opportunity  here to thank our guests from B.C. Hydro.  They were, Mr. WA. Best, Asst. Gen.  Manager, Electrical Operations; Mr. D.J.  McLennan, Divisional Manager, Metro  Region; Mr. H.J. Lazarski, Production  Manager, Metro Region; Mr.P.W. Mosby,  Vegetation Management Supervisor, and  of course Mr. E.J. Hensch, District  Manager, Sechelt.  Thanks are also extended to Mr. R.M.  Janis of the Sechelt Rod and Gun Club who  did an excellent job of chairing the  meeting and to those members of the  Gibsons Wildlife Club, the Sechelt Rod and  Gun Club and representatives of the  Fishermen's Union who took an active  part in the meeting, and we must not of  course forget Mr. Frank West who  represented Mr. Don Lockstead, MLA,  who was unable to attend. It was also very  good to see Mrs. McKown, a teacher from  Elphinstone High School and two of her  students. We appreciate their interest in  our endeavours.  We are sure that when the time comes  to talk about the new high voltage transmission line from Chaekamus to Vancouver Island, the people from B.C. Hydro  will be prepared to listen to the people and  to come to some reasonable compromise  acceptable to all when it comes to routing  it through the Pender Harbour area. The  subject was touched upon at our meeting  but it was felt that the time was not ripe for  detailed discussions at the time.  J. Hind Smith  Gibsons Wildlife Club  CINAMMON BRYANT, seven,  examines a piece of her parent's  stained glass work as she helps them  Would a Gibsons marina  help the quality of life?  Editor, The Times:  The objection to the shelving of the  Gibsons Marina by local development  entrepreneurs merits a reply.  As the barely disguised vested interest  in profits and sales rears its head, let's  examine a few points.  Would the marina improve the quality  of life of the ordinary citizen of Gibsons?  The quiet life of a small coastal village is  precisely the reason most of us choose to  live here. As is clearly stated by the pro-  marina group and the Village Council, the  marina is principally for the use of greater  Vancouver boaters who will hopefully drop  a few .shekels into whose pocket?  One of the aldermen mentioned, as an  alternative to the marina, the development of the village owned lots into picnic  areas and Improving the beach area. This  project would be there to be enjoyed by  everyone in the Gibsons area.  At present we are all concerned with  the surrender of our wntcr system.

To Mr. Walter Tripp, who volunteered  to use Ws four-wheel drive for transportation up the treacherous conditions of  DavIa Bay. I am particularly grateful.

Editor, The Times:  (The foUowing letter was sent to Mr.  A.V. Fraser, Minister of Highways,  Victoria.)  My indignation over road conditions  during snowstorms on the Peninsula has  finally ^reached the point whereby I can no  longer keep silent. After four winters of  witnessing the same lack of preparation,  poor organization, and slow reaction to  road conditions caused by pre-forecasted  snowfalls, I have finally been prompted to  write your department and demand a  public explanation, if possible.  In March, 1976,1 sat as Official Court  Reporter at the Inquest into the death of  Lillian Trotter. She was killed ma motor  vehicle accident on the 30th of November,  1975. The following verdict and recommendations were brought in by the jury:  "We,  the Jury,   conclude  that  on  November; 30, 1975, Mrs. L. E. Trotter,j  died as a result of a motor vehicle accident  on Davis Bay Hill. We feel no blame should  '*be<wplaced ,(^;^ the;  - hazerrdous ft^d-t^ditW; even  Mrs. Morrif^T^  vehicle at that time   /'������'  "We, the Jury, conclude that on  November 30,1975, Mrs. L. E. Trotter,  died as a result of a motor vehicle  accident on Davis Bay Hill. We feel no  blame should be placed on either party  due to the hazardous road conditions,  even though Mrs. Morris was not in  control of the vehicle at that time.  "We feel that the grade on the Davis  Bay Hill that slopes off, forcing traffic  that is going down hill, to slide Into  oncoming traffic under extreme  slippery conditions should be  corrected. Snow removal and sanding  equipment should be made available  before conditions have become extreme."  Constable Boothman, of the RCMP  Detachment, Sechelt testified: "At the  time of my arrival, it had been snowing for  quite a period of time." He went on to say:  "The road was covered with four to six  inches of wet heavy snow and was extremely slippery, and lt was still snowing  at the time of my arrival and during my  period of Investigation at the scene. The  road surface was such that other traffic  coming through the scene was having  some difficulty and creating such a hazard  I did not take measurements of the actual  scene." He further stated: "Further to the  conditions of tlie highway, at the time of  my arrival, and through the time of my  attendance at Uie scene, there was no  Indication that there had been nny  maintenance work with regards to plowing  or sanding."  Constable Boothman also gave  testimony concerning the grade slope of  Duvlu Bay Hill, from which testimony, In  my opinion, the recommendations of the  Jury resulted. Ho further gave testimony  tliat both vehicles involved in this accident  were equipped with snow tires on the rear.  One of these vehicles wns also equipped  with Ico studs.  Constable Boothman hud arrived on the  scene at approximately 8:30 a.m. Sunday  morning, and It had begun snowing In the  Gibsons area from 6 p.m. tho previous  Saturday evenlnR.  To my knowledge, no attempt to  correct the slope of DavIa Bay Mill has  lieen undertaken by the Department of  Highways. Please correct me lf I am in  error.

If this mine can be stopped lt will  set a precedent to stop rnture uranium  mining In B.C.  If you are opposed to this mine, voice  your opinion by writing to I .en Marchnnd,  MP, House of Commons, Ottawa, Ont.  PaulWIckland  Gibsons  was nO doubt snow would fall and yet no  attempt, to my knowledge, was made to  salt or sand the most treacherous hills on  the Peninsula, and especially Davis Bay  Hill, which, as noted above, is badly  designed and one of the most treacherous  on the Peninsula. Was it because there was  no salt stored on the Peninsula in advance? And, if there was not, why not? The  snow did not start to fall until early afternoon. Surely conditions warranted  some action to be taken. There could have  been no excuse of men being unavailable  as it was during regular working hours.  As you are aware,' there was great  tragedy, both minor and major, as well as  incredible inconvenience for a large  number of residents on the Peninsula '  during those hours of snowfall. Not only  were there many vehicles damaged there  were many individuals who were forced to  deave their cars and walk miles in order to  'get home. The school children were forced  to find their,own way home and if no  itr^isportation was available, were forced  walk. Although the school buses  eventually reached Sechelt, they refused  to do the run from Sechelt to Halfmoon  Bay, because of the treacherous conditions  on Redrooffs Road, on Sergeant's Bay Hill.  One school bus nearly tipped over on  Langdale Hill.  I would appreciate some information as  to what went wrong again this year. 1 can  appreciate the fact that many individuals  caused their own problems by not being  equipped with snow tires. However, even  those who did have snow tires, four-wheel  drives and chains, had extreme difficulty  in gettng up the more treacherous hills.  I can further appreciate the fact that  snowstorms on the Peninsula are few and  far between, resulting therefore in a small  contingency of graders, senders and salt  trucks. However, in almost every instance  of snowstorms, and particularly this one,  there has been ample time given of a  pending snowfall. Adequate preparations  should have been taken, and quite simply,  to my knowledge, were not.  We, as taxpayers, through gastax, etc.,  pay dearly for the upkeep of roads.  Adequate preparation and thorough  organization is taken in areas where snow  is regularly expected, I.e. the interior of  B.C., and throughout the rest ot the  provinces. Unfortunately, It seems that  our milder temperature lulls the Department of Highways into a false sense of  .security, and like the ostrich, you bury  your heads in the sand (snow?) and ignore  the fact that we do have snow. Surely, the  ono or two short term snowstorms as these  other areas. Are we paying for snow  removal and salting, etc. everywhere else  but here?  If tliat is tlie case, then 1 think it is high  time for the people on this Peninsula as  well as the residents of Vancouver, to rise  up out of Uielr upathy and indifference and  liegin to pressure your Department and  tho ever present burcuuerucy into proper  maintenance of this area during , the  winter.  Please let not this appalling situation  occur again this winter or any future  winter.  .ludy Mathon  .Sechelt.  Graeiousness in  defeat is laeking  Editor, The Times:  I noticed two comments In your postelection edition, one by defeated regional  candidate Duncan Sim describing winner  Joe Harrison as a "puppet" nnd the other  Shn'a hard-working backer Lloyd Davis  suggesting Harrison won by knifing opponents In the back, lf either of these  tactics were an advantage to winning the  confidence ot people in Area A, Davis and  his mnn would have gone In by a landslide.  I congratulate these two gentlemen on  their graeiousness In defeat.  Howard Whit*,  MadelruPnrk.  There are many fatherless boys on the  Sechelt Peninsula, boys whose fathers are  absent from the home because of death,  divorce or desertion. "I wish I had a nice  father like the other kids," one of these  boys said wistfully. He was lucky.  Although his father didn't return, he did  get a Big Brother, an understanding man  who befriended him and filled some of the  gap left by the father's absence. -  At least five boys iirthe Sechelt-Gibsons  area are waiting for a Big Brother. Some  have been waiting since June. A seven-  year-old with no fond memories of his  father desperately. needs a close  relationship with a man he can trust. A boy  of nine is confused and hurt because his  father left the family on the boy's birthday. He's waiting for a Big Brother too.  "The most important qualities a Big  Brother must have are patience and understanding,' ' commented Bob Wetmore,  chairman of. the steering cornmittee, who  was asked by special education to set up a  Big Brothers chapter on the Sunshine  Coast. "The boy has to get confidence in  you and this may take tirhe." ,  Wetmore, who is principal of Roberts  Creek Elementary School, said eight Big  Brother-Little Brother relationships have been established since  the local chapter was organizied in August,  1976. In addition to the five boys on the  waiting list, there are frequent enquiries,  including calls from mothers who applied  for a Big Brother in the Vancouver area  but have since moved to the Sechelt,  Peninsula. In the next few years, as many  as 25 boys may need Big Brothers locally,  he said.  When the local organization gets its  charter in about three months, it will  become one of 19 fully-established  chapters in B.C.  Big Brothers is a Canada-wide agency,  established in 1904, and is supported by the  United Way Agency and various levels of  government. Its motto is "No man ever  stands so straight... as when he reaches  out to help a boy."  Wetmore said Big Brothers usually  spend four to six hours a week with their  little Brother, fishing, playing or watching sports, seeing movies and doing  other "father-son type of things." The Big  Brother is not expected to be a "sugar  . daddy" or to become involved in the  mother's problems. Occasionally, he may  wish to include other family members in  the activities he shares with his Little  Brother. Relationships usually last a  minimum of two years.  "One old gent in Vancouver, who's in  his 70's, is looking for his fourth Little  Brother," Wetmore said.  "The^titM^  liave all grown up but they still lieep^iff "���  touch."  Big Brothers are carefully screened  and mothers wanting a Big Brother for  their son must fill out a detailed application form. Suitable men are matched  with boys who have compatible interests  and before the boy meets his Big Brother,  he and his mother talk to special education  counsellor Drew McKee of the Big  Brothers steering committee.  "Usually no name is mentioned at first  when Drew tells the mother and the boy  about the Big Brother, but if the mother  gets a hint of who it is, she practically runs  up to the Big Brother and kisses him,"  Wetmore laughed.  "The toughest thing is when I have one  Big Brother and three kids who want him.  I hate playing God." In this situation,  Wetmore usually opts for the "most  suitable match-up", rather than the boy  who needs a Big Brother the most.  In some cases, a boy who requests a Big  Brother "may need professional help  rather than a dedicated volunteer," he  added.  The usual age for Little Brothers is  eight to 12 but three of the boys here are  teenagers, and these relationships are  working out well, as are the five involving  younger boys, Wetmore said. All but one of  the Big Brothers are married and several  have families. They range In age from 22  to the 60s.  Constable Ross Nash of U)c Gibsons  HCMP detachment, who grew up with four  sisters, got nn unexpected bonus when he  Joined Big Brothers a year ago and was  matched with nine-year-old Adam. Tlie  Iwy asked, "Can my little brother come  along?" Big Brothers headquarters had no  objection and Cst. Nash didn't mind so now  six-year-old Ryan ls Included ln many of  the activities.  "There was a little hesitancy on both  our parts at first, but we get along great  now," said Cst. Nash, tho youngest and  only single Big Brother ln Uils area.  "Adam's pretty proud that he'a the only  kid In school with a cop for a Big Brother.  He wants me to talk to his class,"  The boys have toured the police station,  taken rides in the police car, gone skating  and hiking. Adam sometimes accompanies the tall policeman when he  coaches basketball at F.lphlnstono.  "WlUi shift work, It's hard to see the  kids every week but I try to see Uiem Uirce  or four times a month. They're Involved In  . Cutis and Beavers and so on and don't  seem to have problems. They're really  Rood kids. Sometimes when my sister  conies over from Burnaby with her four  kids, 1 take all six of them out. Then  there's real liavoe."  The boys' mother said they are "really  lucky to get someone like Rum He's a  Hpectal friend, you could say. Ilk outings  give them something to look forward to,  and he calms them down."  "I like him quite a lot," Adum commented. "We go skating and when his  sister comes over with her children, I'm  invited over there...He's going to talk at  my school in December.  Another local Big Brother,  photographer and advertising salesman  Harvie McCracken of Hopkins Landing  can't understand friends who say they  "don't have time" to be a Big Brother.  "It's so rewarding for me, I wish I  could spend more time with Dick," he  said. "You don't have to go out of your  way. Often it's just a matter of including  him in something you were going to do  anyway. Tomorrow, for example, I'll pick  him up at school and take him out to lunch.  I have to eat anyway, right? It's not a  chore, because I enjoy his company."  McCracken's wife Carol suggested Big  Brothers when he turned 30 and wanted to  "get involved outside of myself." He said  he is not "club oriented" and found that a  one-to-one relationship is what works for  him.,' '..."."���'..  He's been with Dick, who's 11, since  summer. They've gone|p movies, worked  together in the darkroom, and discussed  books. "He does extremely well at school  and was attempting to get into Gone With  the Wind. He wasn't too impressed. He  said there was 'too much romance' to  wade through before he got to Rhett  Butter."  Although the boys "make it very clear  to you that you are not their father," Dick  is proud of him and introduces him to  friends as "Harvie, my Big Brother,"  McCracken said. "His mother leaves us  very much alone but she is very thankful  for the relationship...! feel very good about  being a Big Brother. Friendship is what  it's all about. It was inconceivable to me  that guys I knew weren't as excited as I  was."  If you are willing to serve as a Big  Brother, or want more information, phone  Bob Wetmore at 885-9229 or 885-9006.

The body's billions of cells require 30  times as much surface for their intake of  oxygen as our entire skin area covers. A  man snoozing may absorb about a half pint  of oxygen a minute, where a runner trying  for a new record mile would use about five  quarts in the same amount of time.  In a biochemical study of exercise and  functional growth it was shown that "just  one week of inactivity causes noticeable  demineralization of over half, of the  calcium from the bone."  Calcium aids in the transportation of  impulses to the nerve cells. In other words,  when this mineral is lacking you become  tense and would suffer from insomnia, lf  calcium is deficient so then is magnesium,  without which tho brain cannot function  normally. The activities we participate in  are a.s important as the milk we drink.  ln outdoor travel, such as hiking or  canoeing, "thinking" along with "action"  is a person's prime responsibility to his  body - we must consider its warmth,  coolant, energy, and its protection. Thi!  brain controls all action and knowledge. If  the oxygen we need.(we use only al>oiit  four per cent of our oxygen intake) plus  water, energy and food are lacking, the  brain -soon deteriorates.  Now that the weather is cold, anytime  you leave the house you should take a  .small 10 lo If* pound dny pack. When hiking  or skiing, this should contain water, food,  spare clothing, compass, matches,  emergency blanket and first aid kit,  With a two degree temperature drop  from the body's normal !)}) degrees, Ihe  brain begins to slow, and death can lx-  imminent. .So fitness and thinking i',o band  in hand.  Perhaps you're not a "fitness nut" and  simply can't relate to what was Just said.  .Still you find you are nervous, constipated  und can't get to sleep. You say your diet is  good! Well, what could the problem lie? It  could be that the body's active  requirements are missing, so come on!  Join la on some of our activities.  I would like to make use of this column  to Invito all women to my Wednesday  Night "Keep Moving Class" which could  solve some of yoar problems. It's from  l>:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the gymnasium at  Chntelech school,  I would like to thank Uie Wilson Creek  Group Home for donating their (ruck and  canoes for my canoe course.

MORE ABOUT ...  ��� a bit of snow  ���From Page A-l  Reid said. "I don't know why this couldn't  ,have been prepared for." -   ,-.  ;, Sechelt School District Secretary-  Treasurer Roy Mills said that for the most  part the school buses weite hampered by  other traffic more than the snow, "but I  personally feel that the buses should carry  chains."  Mills said that school board policy is to  notify certain Vancouver radio stations  when bus runs are cancelled; they left at  their regular times."  "The big question I'm going to have to  sit down and discuss with (Supt.) John  Denley is if it's going to snow whether we  should close the schools early."  Mills said Thursday he had received  two complaints from parents about the  situation on Wednesday.  George Hopkins, who manages the  school bus transportation system, said it  was the cars, not the buses, causing all the  trouble on Wednesday. "The buses can't  go over the cars. We had three buses  leaving Sechelt. I was driving one of them.  But there were ISO idiots at the Selma  Park hill without snow tires on."  The bus coming from longdate was  struck by a pickup on the longdate hill and  knocked into a ditch, he said. There were  no injuries.  He said chains are not practical for the  buses because they won't fit over snow  tires.  By Thursday morning most roads were  clear, but bus driver Dixon ran into more  problems with a load of Halfmoon Bay  Elementary youngsters. He said the roads  around the Jolly Roger were still so icy  thnt "I Just turned around and took them  homo."  i   AL'S   |  i BACKHOE!  LOCAL PROPERTY owners will be  receiving assessment notices such as  the one above this week, and some  people may be in for a surprise when  they see the assessor's estimate of the  actual value of their property.  MORE ABOUT. ..  Assessment officials say the new  system of computing assessed values  will produce a. fairer distribution of  the,tax, burden and. that the change  will hot affect the total local tax bill.  Assessment notice guide  ���From Page A-l  general purposes and one is for school-  hospital purposes. On the Sunshine Coast  both figures will be the same because all  local taxing authorities have agreed to set  assessments in the same way.  The difficulties in the assessment  system began in 1967 when then Premier  W.A.C. Bennett decreed that the assessed  value of any piece of property could be  increased by no more than five per cent  from the previous year.  In 1968 a number of municipalities were  allowed to circumvent this restriction by  creating two tax rolls, one for municipal  purposes and one for school purposes.  Gibsons and Sechejt,, however, continued to use the school roll, which in 1968  was again limited to a five per cent increase.  The consequence of this series of  restrictions was that over the years many  properties became seriously undervalued.  New buildings were usually assessed at  higher values, reflecting rising market  values.  In 1974, the NDP government announced the five per cent limit would be  removed from all properties except  residential and farm properties. This  created such a furor,' however, that the  government promptly froze assessments  on all properties in the province, and until  this year they have remained at that level.  In 1975, the NDP government appointed  a commission of inquiry and instructed the  '':%oififlnission to come up with a plan which  would make assessments intelligible to the  average ratepayer. Earlier; this year, the  commission released its findings, with the  basic recommendation that tax rolls  should once again be based on the actual  value of property.  The Social Credit government has  adopted some of the commission's  suggestions. In August, the government  passed Bill 31, the new Assessment Act,  which requires that a property's assessed  value be the same as its actual, or market  value.  The government offered local taxing  authorities the option of four different  routes for achieving this change. In order  to avoid confusing ratepayers, the local  authorities have chosen the plan which the  provincial government is using for school  purposes. This provides for a four-year  phase-in. By 1981 all properties will be  assessed at 100 per cent of their market  value.  Under this plan, different classes of  properly will be ^assessed diiring the  phase-in period at different percentages of  their market value, these percentages  will be set. annually by the provincial  cabinet../.'".'  For 1978, the government has decided  that residential property will be assessed  at 15 per cent of its market value, commercial at 25 per cent arid industrial at 30  percent  (Industrial designation depends on land  use rather than zoning. Most industry on  the peninsula will be assessed as commercial at the 25 per cent rate. The major  exeption is Port Mellon, designated at  industrial.)  Thus, for 1978, if a house with an actual  value of $50,000 paid a total of $400 in taxes,  a $50,000 commercial property woold py  $667 and a .$50,000 industrial property  would pay $800. 1  Under the new system, vacant lots aridi  improvements to buildings will be  assessed at 100 per cent of their market  value, as opposed to 75 per cent  previously.  Winterburn, of the Assessment  Authority, said that those taxpayers who  Find their property assessments increased  this year may take some consolation from  the knowledge that they have probably  been paying less than their fair shares'of  taxes for years.  When the new assessment notices  arrive, they will be accompanied by a  brochure explaining why the changes are  rietfellsary arid how 16 read the notice. !|  Property owners who have furtHer  questions may contact the assessment  office in Sechelt at 885-3206.  Persons who consider that the  assessor's estimate of their property's  actual value is not fair or that the property  is incorrectly classified should contact the  assessment office for an explanation.

Organized by Elphinstone students the  main theme of the forum, was "Man and  his Environment." Fran Berger of the  Fitness Service (above) spent the afternoon dancing the can-can to prove that  exercise can be fun. On a more serious  note, the Fitness Service also held a well-  patronized blood pressure clinic.  A wooden slide and books from the  Wilson Creek.Daycare Centre occupied  many of the younger children while their  parents investigated displays featuring  nuclear power, edible plants and the  proposed waterfront park at Soames  Point.  One of the more dramatic features was  the anti-whaling film prepared by the  Greenpeace Foundation. Both this and a  film from the Pro-life group attracted  large audiences.  There were lectures on stone house  building, mercury poisoning and alternate  energy systems.  At 3 p.m., in the gymn, the audience  and master-of-ceremonies George Mat  thews (above) relaxed to the dulcimer of  Randy Rain, the poetry of Pete Trower  and the music of "Up the Creek."  Meanwhile,  back in the kitchen,  students from the Elphinstone French  class Iwere preparing vast vats of  spaghetti and meat sauce in a fund-raising  effort to send the class to Quebec next  summer. ^  Diners ate from tables covered in white  linen and decorated with candles and  flowers. They said the food was delicious.  l0tfVM��D B00HN6 PW,.^  IV ROOFING SUPPLY CENTRE mA  Squaringly yours  By MAURICE HEMSTREET  Hello, fellow square dancers. You say  that I got a little behind in writing my  column? Well, maybe, but when the  butcher backed into the meat grinder he  got a little behind in his orders and no one  complained and besides, a long time ago  when I was a brilliant little fellow, I went  for a ride on a train and the back wheels  seem to say to the front wheels, cat-  chumup, catchumup, catchumup, so I  guess it's best I get on with it.  I forgot where I left off, but did I tell  you that on November 5 Russ and Joyce  Baker from the learners' class j oined us at  our Square H Room for extra practise and  it would be nice if more of the learners'  class would do the same? That's on a  Saturday evening.  Novembertl1^- Regular club square  dance with Harry Robertson in command  of three sets of square dancers with the  main theme as tp how not to make  mistakes when they went to North Vancouver to join the Village Squares.  November 12 ��� Two sets of The Sunshine Coast Country Stars ventured forth  to North Vancouver where they joined  Brian and Lorraine MurdoCk's Village  Squares for their annual Lolly Pop Hop.  An extra surprise to Brian was that his  club arranged an extra surprise party as  this was Brian and Lorraine Murdock's  25th year of teaching and calling square  dancing for the enjoyment of others. They  are a fantastic couple and don't look old  enough to have called the square for that  length of time. However, everyone knows  that square dancing keeps a person young  of body, mind and heart.  Our Country Stars were unanimous  that they had trouble with one of our male  square dancers, a tall fellow, I wonder  who?  Wups, due to my notes coming in by  slow seagull, I almost missed the main  surprise. Peter Prentice came all the way  from Kelowna to MC the evening consisting of 24 sets and 12 callers. I also  understand that Pete helped Brian get  .started in the square dance field of entertainment and this is definitely our  .square dancers' gain to happy dancing.  By the way, Pete, when you owned  Dance Craft out on Broadway you sold me  a western suit with a guarantee of 14  years. Well after 13 years, 11 months,  three weeks, six days, 23 hours and 59  minutes and 59 seconds, the coat is still  Rood but our club says that see-thru pants  are just not in style. Now the question is,  don't you think I should have a refund?  The learners' class is now in progress  at our Square H Room Tuesdays at 8 p.m.  and an extra square dance practise at 8  p.m. Saturdays, same place. All square  dancers welcome Including the learners*  ela/is. After all, the more you dance the  .sooner you become a top level club square  dancer.  November 25 ��� Back to the regular  club .square dance and with a caller like  Harry HolwrLson on the end of tlie  microphone 1 hnd to bo late, first time in  years. Oh well, 1 soon made up for It as 1  proceeded to mess up all Uie squares.  My good wife spent three weeks In the  local Horizontal Hotel (hospital) and The  Country Stars square dance club sent her a  beautiful potted plant that will be admired  for a long time to come and we appreciate  and thank you all from tho bottom of our  licnrtH, Again, thank you all.  Merrll Bowes, our president, come up  with anothor coffee break guessing game.  Ho put a pair of western boots on top of the  piano, half way up from the heel a huge  IMtlr of hum glasses and a Unique placed on  top. Then tlio ladles bad to guess wluit tin;  truo moaning was. There were some far  out guests und nil thla time Mori 11 was  .standing with a two foot square box. Well,  Deanna Itobcrtaon came to the closest  wllii the thought Uiat It represented myself  after a liard night of calling so she reached  for tho box which Merrll showed was  empty and said, tho prize Is you get tho  next danco wlUi Maurice but the real  theme wa.n Uw.t this was all that was left of  mo after hv bad -��������� tacp-bocp-boop out of  mo for inlHHlng three weeks of my column.

EVERYBODY TAKE A VALIUM: by  Aislin. 150 caricatures, Hurtig ci977, $3.95.  True to the CYA principle, author  Bureaucrat X hides behind a burlap mask,  tie neatly in place. He writes from experience as one of the bureaucrats he  pokes fun at in the book.  * For one of us to see the CYA in practise,  just try to effect a document change.'apply  for a service or upset any kind of hitherto  established routine in a government  procedure. The slow wheels of the CYA  principle grind into action and nearly  always end in frustration,  ' ���; I think of the time that a friend applied  for her pension. She came from Europe  and her birth certificate had been lost  during the war. For some years she had  trustingly paid into her pension fund,  thinking that on retirement she might  collect it simply by becoming 65. The  trouble that this lady went through and the  hours she spent trying to convince some  young thing that she had indeed been born,  took the edge off the long awaited moment  of retirement.  Early in the book, which treats the  subject with the great humour, we are  made aware of the hierarchial structure of  government positions. The new employee  to the system is classed and assigned a  supervisor, who often doesn't know quite  what to do with him because he doesn't  know what is going on at that level  anyway. It is not of great importance,  however, as the fledgling soon advances to  the next step and becomes someone else's  problem.  If the fledgling is advanced via the  Peter Principle, perchance to the pinnacle  of success, he has obviously learned not to  make waves ��� a prime factor in the CYA  set-up. "If you are up to your chin in  polluted water, you do not want someone  around who will make waves."  On the subject of budgets, the author is  quite clear. Spend lt all. If you don't, your  budget will be cut by that much next year.  Also, he advises, when applying for a  budget to fund a project, make lt big. The  bureaucratic mind always regards an  qxpeaslve project as note-worthy. Big  budget requests are the exception to the  don't-make-waves rule.  i The book ls truly funny. A good companion to it Is OK EVERYBODY TAKE A  VALIUM! by cartoonist Aislin. The  Illustrator is really Terry Moshcr, a  Montrealcr. His work ls also available In  French.  A fow of the caricatures are a little  indelicate, but goodness knows we need to  liave a laugh now-a-days. Alslln's truth In  the satirical drawings cuts deep but leaves  no scars. Tako tho ono which lias Nixon's  face singing Into a hand mlko, "I did it my  way."Or Joe Clarke wlUihls head on bnck-  to-front saying, "Follow me." Then there  ls Hone Lcvesque with drooping ashes and  falling pants shouting, "We can't afford to  lo.se our heads."

Johnson told William McSweeny last week  as he sentenced'the Gibsons man to 28  days in jail finding him guilty of his second  and third impaired driving offences since  July.  McSweeny was charged twice in October with driving with a blood alcohol  reading of over .08.  Probation officer Neil McKenzie  recommended the jail sentence be served  intermittently at Secfielt so McSweeny  could-continue to attend AA meetings and  receive counselling.  Johnson replied that the advantage of  serving the sentence at Oakalla meant  McSweeny could be home in time for  Christmas.  "You understand the minimum I can  give you is 14 days on each charge?"  Johnson asked the accused.  However, McSweeny elected to serve  his sentence from 8 a.m. Mondays to 8  p.m. Tuesdays in Sechelt.    ^  Johnson also placed McSweeny on  probation for two years and ordered him to  consume no alcohol, to undergo counselling and to submit to a breathalyzer test  whenever asked to do so by the RCMP.  "A refusal or a reading of over .01  means a breach of probation," said the  judge. "I'm putting you under very serious  restraints."  In a separate case, a 17-year-old  Gibsons girl was given a conditional  discharge after pleading guilty to theft  under $200.  She was charged last month after she  left a store in Lower Gibsons wearing a  stolen pair of jeans under her own  clothing.  Johnson placed the girl on three months  probation with orders to undergo counselling.  A breach of probation charge was  settled Wednesday when Johnson sentenced Hubert Joe to seven days in jail.  The jail term, recommended by McKenzie  in his pre-sentenco report, wa.s opposed by  lioth the crown counsel and the defence  lawyer.  In November 1975 Joe was found guilty  of breaking and entering and ordered not  to consume alcohol for two years. Earlier  this year he was found in a beer parlor but  told police he had not been drinking.  Even if this had been true, said  Johnson, "it was an extremely stupid  thing to do."  Noting that Joe had appeared in court  34 other tinies, the judge ruled "a fine is  not appropriate in this case. The terms  and conditions of a probation order must  ���be abided by." . . ''_  Defence lawyer Thomas Raphael asked  for the jail term to be delayed so an appeal  could be made.  Two teenage boys were each fined $100  by Johnson. One was convicted of  possessing alcohol while underage and the  other for drinking while underage.  TOPS is a place where people meet  When they have a problem where they  overeat!

Seniors take  a film visit  to Holy Land  By ROBERT FOXALL     '  .. .    . i  With Mrs. Karpenko and her daughter  operating the projector, some 30 members  of Br. 69, Senior Citizens Assn., were  privileged to travel again with Mrs.  Karpenko to Jerusalem.  - It was a contrast to come in form the  snow that surrounded the hall and see the  vivid colors of the flowers of the Holy Land  the green of the Mount of Olives as we  went from historic point to historic point  in Jerusalem. There were mosques and  temples side by side with buildings erected  by the Crusaders and views of many sites  that we have learned about in our earlier  Sunday School days and which still have  meaning Hn these modern times.  Along with the colourful scenery, the  running commentary gave us a fresh  insight into the history of the Holy Land.  Many thanks to Mrs. Karpenko for a most  interesting afternoon. Because of a little  trouble with the projector at the outset we  did not have much time for games but  finished off the afternoon with a tea parly  and a visit among all those present.  Upcoming events are the executive  meeting to be held at 10 a.m., December 6  at Our Hall. Both old and new members of  the executive are expected to attend this  meeting so that the odds and ends may be  tidied up and a clean sheet given to the  new executive when they take over after  the Christmas Dinner to be held at noon  December 15.

Page B-4 The Peninsula Times Wednesday, November 30,1977  Between the lines  An impossible price?  By Dennis Fitzgerald  I got into quite a bit of trouble with John  Hind Smith last week.  There's nothing too unusual in that.  Somebody's always put out with me for  something we did do or something we  didn't do. That's the way it goes in  business and politics. Newspapers are a  little bit of both.  Elsewhere in this issue you'll find a  letter from John expressing his dismay at  the media's handling (or non-handling) of  the November 16 meeting between B.C.  Hydro and some local environmentalists.  He doesn't name names, but I don't  mind 'fessing up. I'm the guy who showed  up to cover the meeting, and then didn't  write a report on it. (The Press wasn't  there but ran a front page story on it,  which John apparently found little more  satisfactory than no coverage at all.)  I explained to John my reasoning in not  reporting the meeting, but he didn't find it  very reassuring, so I won't bore you with  my excuses. If you're interested in  discussing my problems come around and  buy me a cup of coffee.  Herewith, a tardy and informal look at  some points raised in that November 16  meeting. It opened up some potentially  valuable lines of communication between  Hydro and the local groups, and it touched  on several projects (mentioned by John in  his letter) which may prove to be quite  valuable.  One such project is the offer by Gibsons  Wildlife Club, Sechelt Rod and Gun Club  and the fishermen's union to maintain  plant growth along fish bearing stream-  that cross the right of way. Hydro is  concerned about the safety of amateurs  working under the powerlines, but seems  inclined to approve th plan with the  proviso that each clearing job is first  authorized by the company.  . The second project is a proposal that  the clubs collect water samples following  herbicide spraying and submit those  samples to an independent laboratory for  testing. Hydro's water samples are tested  at a Department of Agriculture laboratory  in Vancouver.  It is a third idea, however, that's the  most interesting and a little puzzling to  me.  Hydro's main reason for using herbicides is that they are by far the cheapest  means of keeping the rights of way clear.  In areas where they can use a helicopter  for the spraying, it costs the company  about $120 an acre. Company officials say .  that is about one-fourth what they would  have to pay to have the area hand-slashed.  There-is little helicopter spraying on  the peninsula, however ��� largely because  helicopter spraying leads to, such a public  outcry. Most of our right of way is either  cleared mechanically, with a Hydro ax  (that would be relatively flat sections such  as the one through Roberts Creek) or by a  combination slash and stubble spray  program. These cost proportionately  more, depending on the-terrain and the  type of work that has to be done.  Hydro claims the right of way can't be  cleared economically without some  spraying.  But Digby Porter disagrees. Porter's  name was mentioned at the November 16  meeting and it was reported that he had  said he could clear the right of way for $150  an acre, with no spraying.  There   were   several   raised   Hydro  eyebrows at this suggestion, raised mostly  in skepticism.  So we called Porter and asked him if it  were true.  He said right, he'd do it for that price ���  if they'd give him the contract for the  entire line on the peninsula and if they'd  drop the requirement that hand-slashed  material has to be burned.  Porter is the P in PV Services of  Pender Harbour. He says the company  now clears about 2,000 to 4,000 acres a year  for Hydro around the province. He said his  company also did the original clearing for  Hydro for the present line between Sechelt  and Pender Harbour. So he hs some basis  for knowing what he's talking about.  Porter said the burning requirement is  not applied to spraying operations, and he  can't see what difference it makes  whether a tree falls down by itself after  being sprayed or whether it's cut down  with a saw.  "If they'11 drop that, I'll guarantee to do  the whole peninsula for $150 an acre," he  said. .  He also disputes Hydro's contention;  that clearing and seeding flat areas to  grass doesn't do much to inhibit alder  growth. He said he's experimented in a  section of his property,using a seededarea  and an unseeded control area. In the  seeded area, the alders aren't coming  after two years, he said.  Klondike  night in  the 1940s  A few months ago Marilyn Harris of  Nanalmo wrote me a letter and enclosed  some pictures belonging to her mother,  who thought they might bring a few smiles  nnd awaken memories for some. They  were taken at an Irvines Landing Klondike  Night In the 1940s.  The two gentlemen with the bottle are  I .en Wray and Archie Douglas. Archie  passed away a few yeurs ago, and  everyone knows Len lives at Gibsons.  The people around the table are, from  left, Alice Haddock, Bill Matier, Koyul  Murdock nnd .John Duncan with Ernie  Cotton in the front. Bill Matier used to Iw  the wharfinger at Irvines landing when  the Union .Steamships imd Gulf Line were  running and Royal Murdock had Mur-  dock'S" Store ot Pope landing and was a  Imrd community worker. Mr. Cotton had a  lodge at .Sakiiuiw I .nke which burned  down. These three fine gentlemen liave all  jm.sfu'd on.

Guy Clear's  death a loss  Death came suddently to Guy Clear on  November 23 while he was working in the  garden of his home on Redrooffs Road. He  lived a full life, keeping busy and active  right up to the moment of his passing. The  day before his death, he had joined a bus  trip to Coquitlam, organized by Branch 69  Senior Citizens' Association, and on the  previous Saturday, he had been one of the  guests of honour at the family dinner of the  Welcome Beach Community Association.  Guy had a remarkable number of interests and to all of them be brought great  skill, craftsmanship and patience. He was  one of the most successful gardeners in the  area, an enthusiastic collector of stamps,  rocks and shells, and a skilled  photographer. He had a vast collection of  slides and was always happy to put on  slide shows .for his friends in the Sechelt  Senior Citizens and the Welcome Beach  Community Association.  Undoubtedly, the club which will miss  him most sorely is Sunshine Coast  lapidary and Crafts which has been  enriched by the diversity of his skills. He  did some exceptionally fine work in  Jewellery, carvings, inlay work and ship  modelling, and his Jewellery cases lined  with velvet were a tribute to his patience  und ingenuity. Yet, with all these gifts,  Guy Clear was a quiet, gentle and  unassuming man, a kind and thoughtful  neighbour and ono of die most loved and  respected residents of the Redrooffs Road.  Born 82 years ago ln Hertfordshire,  England, he wns brought to Canada as a  small boy by his parents who settled on a  farm in Saskatchewan. A few years later,  he came to the west coast In search of a  more balmy climate and became a  lighthouse keeper. In 1930, he married  Olive Watson and nfter a few more years  tending lights along the B.C. coast, Uiey  settled down to farm at Courtenay. It was  while Guy was acting as relief llghtkecper  on Merry Island that he became Interested  In the Sunshine Const and decided It was  the ideal place for retirement. He bought a  lot at Seacrest where, unaided, he built his  comfortable and pleasant home, retiring  there in Hlltf..  Guy Is survived by his wife Olive and by  one cousin, Arthur Clear of Vancouver.  Funeral service wus hold on November 26  nt the Devlin Funeral home with the Rev.  N..I. Godkin officiating. Interment  followed In Seaview Cemetery. Mary  Tinkley.

The CPR Ferry "Princess Patricia"  offers an eighWay excursion among the  mystery and majesty of our northwest  coast. The return trip from Vancouver to  the port of Skagway in Alaska offers rare  glimpses of the geologic past and of .great  events to come in the not far distant  future.  "If you look out to the beach on the left  a4ide of the ship you will see some large  tree stumps. They are cottonwood and  they are there because of the movement of  the glacier that, not much more than 200  years ago covered this bay in which we are  sailing, with ice more than a mile thick."  The voice of the shjp's purser came  over the loudspeaker system offering  another of his fascinating talks on the  magnificent country through which for  several days we had been passing. He  went on to explain that some hundreds of  years ago a mountain of ice crept over the  land which at that time had reached the  stage ~ taking aeons of time to do so ���  when U could support life in theform of  cottonwood trees. Gradually the weight of  the ice ���not to be calculated in ordinary  terms ��� pressed the earth down 40,50, 60  feet until the trees were submerged. Still  the ice crept on and the bay, now named  appropriately enough "Glacier Bay",  became one huge sheet of ice. More time  passed and the glacier began to melt.  Slowly the weight was lifted and slowly the  land rose again. Those cottonwood trees  preserved in ice for hundreds of years met  the air and of course rotted..  The striations on the bare rocky hills  mark the passage of the ice as it gouged  and tore away the land to form more sea  bed, more shoriine. Creation at work.  Slowly the lichens took over. The seabirds  and wind did their part and over the years  the alders appeared bringing their own  nitrogen-supplying power with them to  nourish the land. Creation.  This is not a travelogue, nor is it an  advertisement for a steamship company.  It is just an attempt to open by a crack the  door that hides majestic mystery in a  world that is excitingly new yet old  beyond imagining, a world that gives the  word "time" a completely different  meaning from that which we usually give  it.  If you would see the cottonwood stumps  at Glacier Bay and 100 other miracles, you  must find a way to take a trip to Alaska. It  starts in Vancouver and travelling through  more than 1,000 miles of majestic scenery  to the northern port of. Skagway, finally  shows you Lake Bennett on the White Pass  and Yukon Railway, the point from which  thousands of adventurous souls started  their journey to,4he goldfields in 1898. On  this desolate shore, some 20,000 men who  had survived the terrible journey over the  Chilkoot Pass through which you haye just  travelled in comfort, built their makeshift  boats and rafts for the long journey to their  El Dorado. Today it is a huge silent  wilderness of spruce and rock with only  the railway station to mark its existence.  And a church, Set on a hill above the lake it  was built by volunteers with the materials  available to bring the comfort of a familiar  religion to those thousands whose ambition, or greed if you will, had landed  them in that desolation. The men left, the  gold rush died, and the church is their  monument. Fortunately, someone has the  foresight and faith to keep it in a condition  that those of us who follow may read and  learn the lesson.  Before you get to that farthest point in  your journey you will have seen many  things.  The little fishing village of Ketchikan,  for instance, with its offerings of native  work in bone, ivory and wood carvings. Its  rain forest park holds a wealth of totem  poles and restored remnants of native  work in another civilization, and with  native people to tell you the .story. You will  liave been prepared for this and for all the  other sights by that enthusia.st of these  northern coasts, the ship's purser.  A couple of times a day, or more often if  Uie occasion calls, he will tulk for 10  minutes or so on what you have seen, arc  looking at or will be shown. He drawns on a  score of years of travelling this route and  has read, one would think, almost  everything ever written about It. Without  those talks Uio tri|xs would lose half its  value.  At ono point on tho journoy tho alilp  takes on four young people who as forest  rangers in the biggest such reserve in tlie  world, spend their days watching the flora  and fauna, and recording their. observations of every natural phenoncmnn.  They talk with the ship all day and from  time to time each gives a little talk. They  are always available lo answer questions  even the silliest ones with unfailing  courtesy and attention.

As recently  as 200 years ago the bay was covered  by a mile-thick sheet of ice.

You will have seen the immense Grand  Pacific Glacier moving inexorably onto  Glacier Bay and soon, say the experts, to  meet its neighbour the Margerie Glacier.  If you happen to be lucky .and are in the  right place at the right time you will see  immense chunks of ice falling into the  water as the glacier "calves" and sends its  contribution to the world climate on its  way-  The immensity of this entire experience, crowded into eight days, cannot  possibly be indicated in a few minutes of  reading. This Pacific coast has been the  writer's home for more than half a century, for the first time he found out that it  harbours the wealthiest per capita single  community in the entire world. That, any  way, is the.official,information. It is a  place called Petersburg and it stands at  the north end of Wrangell Narrows. There  is no road to it and no sea-going ship can  berth there. Access is by air or small boat  only. The channel is 100 yards wide, extends several miles and the ship requiees,  they tell us, some 40 odd major changes of  course to negotiate it. The operation at  night with red and green light markers  every few yards, apparently strewn  haphazardly across the waters, would be a  terrifying sight to the landsman. Except  for a unique happening. Over the years  that this particular ship has been making  this particular trip it has become the  custom for the ship's siren to be sounded  and its searchlight played on the village. It  is the signal for the residents of Petersburg to flash their porch and house lights  and for the cars on the roads by the water  L  t HGHTTHEf  LDNG CRIPPLERS  Emphysema Asthma Tuberculosis Chronic Bronchitis Air Pollution  USE CHRISTMAS SEALS  I wish to thank the voters of Gibsons who gave me their vote  of confidence to serve them for the next two years as  alderman and Regional District representative.

People who in all  probability had never met and would  never meet face to face have for a few  moments established a pecular bond that  will be remembered by all of ,us who took  part. ��� "Ships that pass in the night".  Juneau, capital of Alaska and site of the  amazing Mendenhall glacier, which is  practically part of the town, is accessible  only by sea and air. The U.S. government  has gone to great trouble to exploit the  glacier as a tourist attraction, offering  views from an observation building  complete with telescopes, illustrated  lectures and the comfort of a log fire. That  glacier, now a couple of miles or more  away, will if it continues to move at its  present rate, bring a wall of ice hundreds  of feet high to within a few feet of those  glass windows by the middle of the 1980s..  "Prince Rupert offers another chance to  go ashore and explore a little. The town is  unrecognizable to one who last saw it in  the war year of 1941, and the RCAF base at  Seal Cove cannoHjerecognized among the  commercial buildings that now cover it.  The last stop of the journey is Alert  Bay, depressing and uninviting to the  casual visitor despite the number of totem  poles. One reason for this is the big sign at  the edge of the village that says "Nimpkish Land" with an arrow pointing  toward the village and the caption "Stolen  Nimpkish Land." Not calculated to make  one feel a welcome guest.  Then home to familiar things.

It was  followed by dancing to records. _"  FILM SHOW  Despite the fact that driving was still  hazardous following last Wednesday's  . snowstorm and that some residents were  unable to get their cars out of their  driveways, a good crowd turned up at the  Halfhioon Bay School Thursday,  Nbveiriber 24^ to See the videotape of "I  Heard the Owl Call my Name". One group  of people had come all the way from  Roberts Creek just to see the film. The  sweet voice of Katherine Kelly created-  precisely the right atmosphere by her  singing of ''Amazing Grace," the theme  music for the film. Mrs. Leuchte expressed appreciation to Mrs. M. Davie,'  principal of the school, for her cooperation in making available the use of  school facilities. Next film show on  January. 26 will return to the Welcome  Beach Hall with films on Mexico and  Central and South America.  With the dissolution.of the Welcome  Beach Waterworks District completed and  its affairs wound up, its remaining bank  balance of $385 has been transferred to the  Welcome Beach Community Association.  On the sick list is Mrs. Mary Walker, in  St. Mary's Hospital for tests and observation.  Sympathy is extended to Mrs. Eva  Lyons on the death of her son-in-law,  Percy (Rusty) Russell in hospital in  Montreal. Rusty is survived* by his wife  Marilyn (nee Lyons) and three children,  Neville, Frank and Linda, all of Montreal.  SAILBOAT CRUISE IN SOUTH PACIFIC  While in Seattle recently, Dick and  Lillian Birk of Southwood, were able, to  speak to.their son and daughter-in-law,  Dennis and Jane Birk who are exploring  the. South Pacific in their Tahiti.Ketch  "Takuli". The "conversation was made  possible by Jane's father, Frank Larson of  Seattle, who is a radio ham, and it was  conducted through a combination hook-up  of radio and telephone. Dennis'and Jane,  who have lived in Oahu for the past two  years, left there in October for a cruise of  the South Pacific. On their way south, they  hit the doldrums and just as luck would  have it, that was the time their motor  failed them.  They were able to fix the motor and  proceed to the tiny Island of Ahe, one of the  Tuamoto Islands. Ou this part oi: the trip  they were completely cut off from the  world except for their radio. For day after  day they saw no sign of alship or even of  whales and dolphins. They spent three  weeks living the simple life on the  beautiful little" island of Ahe where they  received, a warm welcome from the 100  residents. There was a very dry spell at  the time and water supplies on the island  were low, so that Dennis did not care to  ask for water for the Takuli tank.  However, before they left, there was a  heavy rainfall and both the Birks and the  islanders were able to fill up their tanks  with rainwater. Dennis and Jane are now  heading for Tahiti where Jane's parents  will be flying out to spend Christmas with  them.

The logical next step is  to deal with their development, of which  the most important part probably is the  pruning ��� or not pruning.  This ancient art is probably one of the  least understood in the practice of hor*  ticulture. To some inexperienced gardeners it means the haphazard cutting  away bf the wood without any particular  rhyme or reason.  The first rule in pruning, say the experts, is never cut any wood away at all  unless there is a reason and you know what  the reason is. The next important tiling to  remember is that cutting away wood  encourages the growth of mone wood.  While it is possible to generalize to a  certain degree as far as those guidelines  are concerned, every variety of tree,  shrub or bush demands its own pruning  treatment. The treatment also varies with  respect to both age and condition of the  plant.  To deal with the fruit tree. In this part  pf the country the chief interest is in apples  and pears, but the general rules apply to  other kinds. The object is to grow a strong  tree that will bear fruit, look attractive,  stay healthy and continue to give good  crops. So the first care is to encourage the  growth of "scaffold" branches which will  be the strength of the tree and carry the  laterals that in turn will bear the fruit.  When the tree is purchases from the  nursery it is usually three or four year? old  and the nurseryman has usually shortened  the branches. However, it does no harm to  do a bit more cutting back. The reason io&~  this is to encourage growth at the lower  levels instead of having branches extending so far out that the fruit is out of  reach.  To promote fruiting once the tree is  formed, the rule is, the lighter the pruning  the better. Even at the most severe, not  more than one third of a leader or a lateral  should be cut off. Eventually it becomes  ���possible to judge the strength of the fruit-  bearing wood against thi; weight of the  fruit and cut accordingly. However, while  it is very easy to set a fruit tree "oil, its  ear" by too heavy pruning, one cannot err  seriously by going easy with the pruning  shears. "  Keeping the middle of the tree open is  sound practice and if you take a ride  through the Okanagan orchard belt after  the winter pruning is finished you will see  this done to perfection. It means cutting  out the shoots that grow toward the centre  of the tree so that the growth takes on a  vase-like shape. Remember too, that any  such cutting must be made very close to  the parent limb, and if more than half; an  inch" in diamtefer the wound.should be  treated with a sealing compound to  prevent infection and disease. ;  In these orchards it will be seen that the  shape of the tree has been developed by  following the "modified leader" method of  growth encouragement. This means that  no dominant central leader is allowed but  two or three leaders from which the  laterals grow to the outside, and the  development of any shoots is vigorously  discouraged.  As has been noted before, this peninsula has many old orchards that, while  they may be said to die with dignity, are a  depressing sight. Gradually these areas of  pioneer settlement are being split up into  building lots and the owner thereof inherit  these trees that are dying from neglect.  Their rejuvenation is a challenge with the  odds rather heavily weighted against the  would-be saviour, unless it is realized that  in no way can the good work be hurried.  At least three years of patient treatment is  needed to restore a tree in that condition to  health, if indeed it is ever possible. Fertilization, spraying and good husbandry  are Important, but the pruning is the most  vital and delicate part of the operation.  Visualize the tree you want with strong,  well-spaced scaffold branches and work  towards that end very carefully over the  years ��� at lea.st three of them. These old  pioneers with roots that go down deep Into  Mother British -Columbia can often  produce fruit that cannot be matched for  quality nnd taste.  Finally, If you want to prune and have  no experience ��� get a good book!

Sechelt notes  Reeces rhove on  By Peggy Connor, 885-9347  Bert and Eleanor Reece moved to  Roberts Creek 13 years ago and last  ���Saturday moved to North Vancouver.  Eleanor was the mainstay of the local  Red cross for years and a staunch worker  for the Roberts Creek Auxiliary to St.  Mary's Hospital. She is well liked, efficient  in all she does and a real go-getter.  Wednesday, November 23, the day of  the snow, Eleanor was at St. Aidan's Hall  in Roberts Creek for a last afternoon of  Scottish Country dancing. The dance instructor, Ronnie Dunn, had composed a  country dance named-Eleanor especially  for the occasion, as they wished her all the  best. .....'  . The Reeces will fit in wherever they go.  North Vancouver is lucky to have them as  residents;  SNOW MISHAP  . WUf and Grace Wisher driving home  from Sechelt on the snowy Wednesday  decided they couldn't make it down the  Davis Bay hill, parked the car and started  to walk. Wilf unfortunately slipped on the  snowy surface and fell, breaking his hip.  From St. Mary's Hospital he was transferred to St. Paul's Hospital to have a pin  put in his hip.  GALES WIN  Taking in a hockey game on a Sunday  afternoon proved to be a lucky day. My  program won a lucky draw winning for the  a record courtesy of the Magic Mushroom.  The Gales lost the game but it was an  enjoyable afternoon. Good to watch a  hockey game and cheer on- the home team  again.

Volunteer Firemen had their  draw for the three Texas Mickeys on  November 25 at 5:30 p.m. at the IGA store.  These tickets were in a series of three ��� 1  to 100, 100 to 200 and 200 to 300, each in  three separate boxes. I was asked to be  present to draw the winning tickets.  Winners were Maureen Lee, D.  Fielding and ken Urquhart. Those present  at this drawing were Merv Forbes, Dot  and Stan Silvey, Bill from the Hardware  store, Jim Murray and Morley Luscombe.  Numbers 33,133, 281. The P.H. Firemen  really have some good ticket sellers in the  area, Steve Boyd and Willie Mattis certainly pushed them.  EGMONT NEWS  The bazaar at the Egmont Community  Hall was the usual success. Mrs. Jerima  won the turkey, Norma Martin, gas, and  Monty Ralston the steak dinner for two at  . Ruby Lake restaurant.  PENDER HARBOUR SENIORS  The P.H. Senior Citizen's Association  Br. 80 held its annual meeting last Monday  evening at the Legion Hall. Past events  were reviewed and future ones discussed.  Mrs. Elsa Warden, in her usual gracious  manner, officially installed the new  executive for the year 1978. Pres., Gladys  Brown; first vice-pres., Isabel Ralph;  second vice-pres., Peg Riley; secretary,  Pat Fraser; Treasurer, Edna Johnson.  Mrs. Brown appointed Ruth Saunders  and Jack Heidema to head the refreshment and entertainment committees  respectively. The gathering was shocked  \ and saddened to hear of the recent sudden  death of a fellow member, Mrs. Inga  Madson, a lady whose charm and friendliness will be greatly missed.  Br. 80 will celebrate Christmas, as  usual, with a festive dinner and party: the  day - December 19, 6 p.m.; the place  (please note) - Pender Harbour Community Hall. Tickets available from Mrs.  Nell Lillington 883-2352. Deadline  December 10.

The doors open at 12:01 p.m. Any  donations may be left at the hall from 9  a.m. December 3 or contact Ruth Kobus  883-9603, Vi Evans 883-2625.  ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION BR. 112  A Hard Times Dance will be held at the  R.C. Legion Br. 112 December 9 p.m. to 1  a.m. A Hard Times dance is lots of fun as  you do not look for your best outfit. Wear  those clothes you could never get around to  tossing away, the ones that either bag out  around your knees or fit in the wrong  places, are patched or don't match. That's  what hard times are all about. But please  don't come just wearing your unemployment cheque.  PENDER HARBOUR SECONDARY.  The steel superstructure is about  complete, next stage is the roof.  Curriculum Development assistance from  the U.B.C. is being employed. It is anticipated that during the next six months,  parents, teachers, students and other  people from the community will be involved in the task of determining appropriate curriculum for the school.  Mr. Holmes, principal, would like to be  contacted if anyone would like to work on  any of: hot lunch, fundraising, cultural  activities, hobbies, crafts, sports, library,  drama, etc., etc.  The Student Council has planned two  activities for December ��� a field trip to  Sechelt Arena on December 8 and a Xmas  dance December 16 at the PH Community  Hall from 8 to 12 p.m. The band is "Nitro"  from Vancouver. A Xmas program will be  presented shortly before the Xmas break  in the Community Hall and several  students and teachers are currently  working on this.
