The committee held regular monthly  meetings February through June of, 1977,  in October, and then"disap-  "It seems like It, anyway," said Dick  Proctor, the ferry committee chairman.  Proctor said that although there is a  possibility the committee might meet  again before the summer, no one has  expressed n^uch Interest lately.

Ferries told the committee that it was  unable to juggle the summer schedule to  provide the alternate sailing times It  requested.  , Bill Bouchard, assistant traffic  manager, said the changes "requested by  the committee would "require eliminating  some sailings and would reduce the total  liftoff capacity to an inadequate level."  The committee had complained that  the schedule was causing problems for  local businessmen who could not make the  2:40 p.mi ferry back to Langdale from  Horseshoe Bay, and were forced to wait  until 4:55 pim. to catch another ferry  home.  Edney said the reason there has not  been a ipeeting since October Is because  The. dispute started in January when  Dulyk, a representative of the Service,  Office, and Retail" "Workers' ��� Union Df  Canada, filed a complaint ot unfair labour  practices against the Gibosdns branch of  the bank after.she was laid off from her job  as teller.  It ended when the Canada Labour  Relations Board last week ruled in favor of  the bank..  X.      ?X  The decision followed a hearing in  Vancouver March 13 when bqth the'bank  and the union presented their version of  the dismissal. ��� ���  Dulyk claims she. was laid off January  31 because of her union activity in the  bank. The official reason given for her  dismissal was that the bank was "over  staffed", but she claims she was not the  junior employee in the bank. _  ���However, ~a federal LRB spokesman  told Jean Rands, president of SORWUC,  that the union did not prove beyond a  reasonable doubt that Dulyk was laid off  becau&e*bf her union activity.;.

A definite plan of. action  was to be decided at meetings held over  the weekend in Gibsons and Vancouver.

But after  Lee's  dissenting-vote  was- accompanied by a typically grandiloquent little speech about "local  government expansion" and "empire  building" and "flouting the warnings  and advice of senior governments."  A$ very appealing rhetoric, but  let's consider Director Lee's record  as regards the budget items he raised  specific objection to last week.  ��� Building inspector's salary,  $1,648 per month plus about 12 percent  in various fringe benefits. Lee, and  some other director, first questioned  whether the district's building and  plumbing inspection department  might not' be overstaffed at the  January 12 board meeting when  revision of building permit fees was  under consideration. After some  discussion���directors���agreed-thatr-  there-w^s-insuffieient-information-to  justify cutting bactlhe staff at that  time.-At the suggestion of Lee himself, the directors voted to raise the  permit fees to cover increased costs  and to re-examine the question of  staffing^Jater. At a management  committee meeting on March 7, the  question again rose and Lee supported a recommendation to review  the department's workload after the  summer construction peak. At a  March 9 finance committee meetin  Lee again approved inclusion of the  item in the budget.  . ��� Community planner's salary,  $1,648 per month plus 12 percent  fringe benefits.  At "the  March   7   management  some discussion, it was concluded  that a commitment for these funds  already' existed and that the items  should be included in this year's  budget .and. the necessity for it reexamined next year. Lee concured in  this-recomendation. _ .   - -  Direcotf Lee has thus listened to  the arguments and previously approved each of the items which' he  says force him to vote against the  budget. In the case of the building  inspector's position, he approved it  three times.  Dramatic speeches do not"a  people's hero make. Lee's scrutiiiy of  the district's budget is, as Director  Joe Harrison stated, an "honourabll"  exercise. But after all the scrutinizing  is done, all the arguments concluded,  Mthe_re5Qmmendationspasseiiitom  committee, it is hardly "honourable"  for_one of the budget's architects to  pretend that it-is being forced down  his .throat. . :  It should also be noted that the  increase in local tax requisitions in  this year's budget is almost four  percent rather than slightly above  three percent primarily because of a  $2,000 grant for local RCMP  auxiliaries which was tacked on at the  last minute Thursday.

Since  the whole peninsula is boondocks, I think  the Arena is pretty well near the centre of  it all, Soon the road will be paved all the  way . .(Won't" it, Mr. Vari Egmond?),  making the drive more pleasant.

Now, ior some: reason If the Arena  showed a series of losses,, or the,  association decided because it's a well-  used publicfacllity let the public run it, or  the fees got so high people couldn't afford  to use lt, the Village of Sechelt could end  up with the biggest meat cooler in B.C.,  and the kids would be waiting for Trout   ,  ?"u V7UU' u'�� ���'' "��f��"������c  -Lake~to freeze agaihT (How"sooi we   forUnemploymentand;Emigration,ivould  forget.)

The last thing we need is a. government  agency deliberately adding to the ugliness  we're so good at creating in this once-pure  place. Every piece of despottation takes  something out of our lives, just as the sight  of beauty can uplift us.  And it isn't just the poor residents who  are affected. We're told one of this area's  biggest assets is its scenic attractiveness.  We're urged to exploit this to earn tourisnT  income, But the greater part of most  tourists' view is through the car window.  Spoil this, and' you can spoil the whole  -impression of the regionrBad for businessr������  you know. .    ^ .  So^hy-ttees-it-occtir? Well; the man  responsible is the District Highways  Manager at Gibsons, Tupker Forsyth. He  says roadside brush has to be cleared for  safety reasons; and the_ slashmg. machine \  is the cheapest way. There's a hole in this  justification, which mostly isn'4 Tucker's  fault, but back to that in a moment."  He mentioned several safety problems.  Sight distance is impeded by growing  foliage; trees shading the road prevent ice  from melting and the road from drying;  -etcrAnd "then there- afe^coi^ai!ifs7sueK~~"  #s Ihose^frorii camper drivers who don't  like nasty bushes scraping their beautiful  rigs. - r.;  So the machine is brought up. "Cut  everything^' the operator is told, although  hedges  ana ornamentat-piantings  are  Supposed to be-^sparedr Even-Highways  -  admits   the   program  itself  generates  complaints, not the least of which are  about over-zealous operators. Take a look  at the~inoffensive-itreeTatrthe souttrend of"  Davis Bay beach, which was only there to  " beairafy the beach". Was there really" any  7  need to attack it like-that?       .   ��� ��� .��� ~J*\  The real problem, though, is'tfigg^n/ *  not the individuals. It's the terms of  reference given to officials s_uch as district  highways manager. ��ach official is told to    -  concentrate .on.'one -small-subject.. He  strives to achieve the goals his department  sets-, blinkered'by the rules to the effects  his\efforts are having on matters outside  hi$ responsibility.  .  In fact, his superior would probably tell,  him off if he paid too much attention to  suchA"irrelevant" items.  -    Tasked Tucker whether' he was con-    .  cerned  about the. visual  damage-^the   *  slashing was causing. "This^'lTErScennr-  -rHighvvayilrhe~fephedriijsut. a, transport���  route''. I guess lie's right. Unless we're w  classified as Scenic, there's no money in  the budget for preserving beatity.  We can't seem to learn that this approach doesn't work. WeSee the Economic  ," Develpphjent boys'pacing tide "marshes,  because 'ecology   is   the   Environment   ���  Ministry's problem.

It's no gQbd^^^���we need someone to ,  make sure things stay in balance.  ��" But let's suppose there were a body to  tell Highways it had to consider aesthetics  in this non-Scenic area. What are the  alternatives to the slasher?   '  Well, first, I'm not convinced you have  to work over the whole highway each time.  Everywhere isn't a danger spot.' Why not  just put the effort where problems crop  up?  And how about letting trees grow over  the roads? Other places do that in rural  ,  areas, at least partly to add to the coun-^  tryside  charm.   Also,   with   enough'  overhang, you get less snow and ice" on the  road in the first place.

criminOting I letter he'd,-^ij]ten Dae
Goddyn in June, 1977 and whicli had been
entered as evidence by the Crown the
preceding week, Shannon said, "I
feeling extremely desperate."
He said he was worried because
Grauer, Taylor ahd Lesley Black were
depriving him of his defence of self-
defence by covering up the fad; that Black
had a gun the day of the shooting. He felt
they had "conspired to alter the facts of
$he case" and that he had to meet their lies
with his own fabrications of evidence to
avoid going to prison for 25 years "for
something he didn't feel he was guilty of
Shannon said he'd regretted asking
Goddyn to commit perjury for him almost
immediately after writing the letter and
hadn't meant her to receive it.
He said he was not rational when he
wrote the letter and there were a lot of
inconsistencies In it. He said, however,
that it was true that Black had a gun the
day of the shooting and he saw it, that
Greenberg had told him about Black
having a gun and a contract out on him,
" and thaiBlack was afterhim and he acted
to defend himself,
After pearly three days of extensive
examination ln chief by his defence
counsel Bolton, Shannon was subjected to
a hard-hitting cross-examination by
Crown Counsel I^n Doust,, ,
Doust picked out inconsistencies and
questionable statements In Shannon's
testimony and attacked his credibility. Ho
emphasized tho number of times Shannon
hnd used false names and Identification
papers when entering tho country and,
working Illegally in his five years as a
liked to punch him in the nose.
He had Shannon admit that he had been
mad at Black at various times for failing
to send the' money, for leaving him in
South America when he was sick, for
having a contract put out on him, and for
calling him"' a liar about "the "front
money". *
He questioned Shannon's vagueness
about what happened after the shooting,
such as what he did with the gun, when he
had,the presence of mind to do other
things. Doust hammered the point home
by listing the things Shannon had stated he
was able to do "in a state of shock":
asking Grauer to see that his son Justin got
home, driving home, asking his wife Cathy -
to.drive him to the ferry,° going to Goddyn's rather than his own home to arrange
to get off the Peninsula, playing cribbage
with Goddyn's son, concealing himself in
ttie_trunk of Greenberg's car, asking the
taxi driver to let him off_at the corner .
rather than inironj of Reed's house,\and
managing to escape to Mexico.

like. This includes everything near the

—thing is regular patrol of the garden and
poison bait, which includes the removal of
all apparently dead slugs. Personally, the
drill here is dumping them in a strong
saline solution to make quite sure they will
not revive. There is in this gardener's

The" core curriculum, the learning-
assessment program, a big increase in the
school tax mill rate, funding of independent schools, an assertion that the
ministry sees teachers as "technicians
rather than professionals" — these and
other topics were dealt with glibly, and
finally the allotted time was over. The
brainy education minister left the hall,
unscathed, leaving behind teachers who

staff staged the lates of these * 'media

free time, hand-picked right-wing
reporters were carefully seated in an
arena, sitting far enough apart to look like
a large crowd, and then, at the signal of his
press secretary, he pranced  into  the
theatre, well made up and -glowing with a
southern tan, and delivered the news that
things are .great and will get better. The
friendly press asked him a few questions,
and then it was all over. Not a word about

The carrot rust fly is another enemy
that may be encountered in the vegetable
garden and here again the best defence is -
diazinon stirred into the ground before
seeding.  There are other methods  of,
dealing with this pest. The carrot fly has a
generating cycle which if carefully noted
will defeat it. This gardener, however,
having the vagaries of the coast climate in
mind, prefers to sow when convenient, arid,
carry the war to the fly. Some experts
advise stre^hing a string soaked in coal
oil along the nrtvs blanket the smell that
attracts the fly. Memory howfever goes
back to the days when this^ method was
used commercially with the result that the •
carrots, were completely inedible. Unless
you like the tasted of coal oil, of course.

Roberts James Shannon of Roberts Creek
was on the stand in a mufdertriaVtelling
in painstaking detail of the events leading
up to the death of Bill Black almost \Vz
years ago.
There weren't enough chairs for all the
spectators. Shannon was admittedly
hervous but answered questions calmly,
politely, carefully. Time after time, he
_ responded, "I refuse to answer that
question on the grounds that it might tend
to incriminate me." Mr. Justice Kirke
Smith invariably asked, "Do you require

Act?" Shannon said he did, and then gave

I checked out the Gibsons swimming
pool last week. The most noteworthy
. feature was not its modest dimensions, nor
its pleasant, bright yellow interior, nor the
suitabfe water temperature, bdt the noise.
Perhaps the fact that almost all ofthe
70 or so patrons were school children on
their vacation had soniethingTodo with it.
They were having a great time. Non-
swimmers frolicked in the shallow end or
splashed around in the wading pool. The
., single, low diving board sprung youngster
after youngster into somersaults, back-
flips and belly fltips. Swimming was
basically restricted to the sides of the deep
end and to the mid-pool area, around the
1.5-metre line. There were usually about 10
people soaking in the hot whirlpool.    •-
\ enjoyed my, swim, despite the noise,
the "crowded conditions, the smell of
chlorine, and plan to return often for a
more leisurely swim. , ,      *
It's a shame the pool is so small. None
of the kids seemed to mind, but for people
deririg along the power line right-6f-way.
I was wet and scratched-up when I
regained the trail but in a brighter mood
than when I began the walk.I wonder what

As the  square dance season for 1977-78 comes to  an end there are many wind-up square  dances within easy reach from Powell  River all thru the Fraser Valley, even as  far as Hope. So when you hear the.  majority of our population saying that  there is nothing to do, then it is time that  they joined in the fun of square dancing.  When you travel as a club, it's not too  expensive, and not a bad thought for the  day.  March 28th ��� The last evening for our  beginner class held ih The Square H Boom  was quite an event and V lot of fun with  Harry, Deanna, Peg and myself tippy-  toeing around lining up a bit of 'a surprise-  for the beginners and the beginners' class  lining up a surprise for us. It was like a  16th century stage play where all was total  confusion, till the curtain went up. Then all  plans merged into one great coffee break,  one of the best I have ever sat down .to.  With over two sets of square dancers  around the,tables,  everything seemed  r." 'I���-!'"  Timber Days  picks up steam  After a slow start, 1978 Timber Dajte  organizers have got plans for the annual  event well under way.  Committee Chairman Carl Chrismas  credits much of the progress made so far  to- the committee's co-secretaries.  "If enthusiasm and hard work will get  Timber Days rolling, then Kathy Acton  ' and Angela McDonald, as (^secretaries of  the committee;' have given it a good push,''  Chrtemfls said the, group is hr the  process of planning the usual Timjjer Days  activities such as the May Queen Pageant  and the Tea Garden, and is brainstorming  * new ideas for this year's event.  The committee la planning a fishing  derby and dance, prior to Timber Days,  and also hopes to choose a "Timber Maid",  from among sponsoring groups.  Tom Wood has been appointed  treasurer of the committee and Bjorn Skei  will be contacting loc&l merchants fot  advertising support, in producing this  year's Timber Days program!  quite normal till the class presented Harry  and Deanna Robertson, their called and  teachers, with a beautiful homemade card  complete with verse written bylpoet apdx  square dancers Ron Huggins and his good  taw Lorna and it goes something like ��his;. ���  THE CLASS OF 77-78 f  We started off with two left feet, and our  allemande lefts were't very neat,  We lost our partners, corners-too,-andx���  ended up~with somebody new.  OH! heavens, it was an awful flight as we  do-sa-doed with all our might,  But good old Harry, he showed no pain,  he'd do it over and over again.  He never lost his cool, did he? and tutored  us all so patiently, with able assist from  his dear, Deanne and old uncle Maurice in .  his jolly manner.  So now we unite, all singles and pairs,-to  say many thanks to all you old squares.  Then to top the refreshments of the  evening, a beautiful cake with best wishes .  and happy square dancing was placed  before the class. Deanna proceeded to cut  the cake with a replica of a 1912 Spanish  cd, quite a sight, I must say. However,._  the evening was a fantastic success and  now the class will be able to join The  'Country Stars of any other square dance  anyplace in the whole world.

After Bobby Dixon had,scored what  appeared to be the insurance marker at  16:17 of the third period, making the score  5-3 in favor of the Gales, the Taws showed  a great deal of cool and determination as  Tom Hoehn banged in the winning goal  with 40seconds left in regulation time. The  Taws, in fact, scored four goals, including  an empty net goal, in the last two minutes  of play, indicating the visitors' staying  power and the Gales' inability to get the  puck out of their own end ��� even by  causing an icing infraction.  The firsi period was very fast and very  even, the Taws* Albert Antle netting the  only tally of the opening frame on a solo  effort at 3:24,  Rick Ion brought the homeside even at  4:39 of the second period on passes from  Kelly- Bodnarek--and Bob Blakg^-Blake,  with the Gales at a two-man advantage,  blasting a sizzling' slapshot past a  stupefied Taws' goalie at 7:02, Dave Lamb  -and-Bodnarek-assistingr' "  , At 9:23 Roy McBrien picked up a loose  puck in the Taws' zone to sneak in one of  his patented dipsi-doodle goals, Ion  assisting.

Wednesday, April 5,1978  TheEeninsula Times  sfP&seG-S^  Mortgage financing  The  significance   of  amortization  When we talk about  mortgages, it is important to  understand how mortgage  payments are.calculated and  the significance of different  repayment periods. Few  borrowers can afford to pay  off a large" mortgage debt in  the space of a few years, so  first mortgage lenders stretch  the payments, out for a long  period of time, usually 25  years. This doesn't mean that  the mortgage itself will run  for 25 years. As a.matter of  fact, most mortgages must be  renewed (at current interest  rates) every five years. It  merely means that the  mortgage payments are  calculated as though the  mortgage will run for this  length of time. -J���y :  first    mortgage    on    the  property;   2. You can assume  responsibility for the existing  mortgaged or mortgages on the  property.  3. You can obtain financing  assistance beyond the amount  of the first mortgage loan by  arranging a second mortgage  loan.  1. First mortgages  The type of first mortgage  you select will depend on the  amount of your down  payment. Various types of  mortgages are available  under which the down  payment requirement ranges  from 5 per cent to 25 per cent  (or more) of the value of the  house. '  &K%  ,y^ f,. v  ���a* i  -The repayment period of a  mortgage is known as the  "amortization period."  Although most first mor-v  tgages are "amortized" over  a period of 25 years, periods of  30, 35 and even 40 years are  available under Wme mortgages. "  The length of an amortization period is important to  a buyer for two reasons:  1. The monthly mortgage  payment gets smaller as the  amortization period gets  longer, For example, a  buyer's monthly payment on a  $25,000 mortgage at 10.5 per  cent would be:  (a) $246 where the mor- >  tgage is amortized over 20  years; (b) $232 where the  mortgage'ls amortized over 25  years;- (c) $225 where the  mortgage is amortized over 30  years.  2. A buyer's capacity to  carry a mortgage increases as  the amortization period gets  longer. Suppose, for example,  a buyer has $250 to spend, on  mortgqgo payments each  month and ho can obtain a 10.5  per cent mortgago with an  amortization period of 20, 25  or 30 years; His" mortgago  carrying capacity would bo:  (a) $25,432 under tho 20  year mortgage;, (b) $20,940  , under the 25 year mortgage;  (c) $27,022 under tho. 30 year  mortgago. *  While It Is true that a buyer  can   roduco   his   monthly  payments or onhnnco' his  mortgago carrying capacity  by extending tho amortization  period, lt is also true that n  mortgago loan becomes more  costly as tho amortization  period |s, extended. Consider,  for example, a 10.5 per cent  , mortgage, amortized over  pqrlods,of 20,25 and 30 years.  ���At tho end of tho first five-year  term of tho mortgago, a  borrower would havo pnld:  (o) $4.p5 In Intorost for  i every $1 of principal undor tho  20 year mortgago; (b) $8,04 In'  Intorost for ovory $1 of  principal under .the 20 year  mortgago;;'"(6) $1(5$* in Irb  terost for every $1 of principal  under tho 30 year mortgago.  Mortgage nlternntlvfcs  -    If'you-'WiU'iwefl-'fnortKBSCh'  \MX<Mw^y^AiX. :^aX(?M"  most buyers do), thoro nro  sovoral options open to you:  1. You cari nVrnngo n now  as much as 95 per cent of the-  value of a house. The federal'  housing agency Central  Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) administers  the National Housing Act.  NHA loans are available  through lenders approved-  under the National Housing  Act or directly from' CMHC.  1. Approved Lenders: Any  office of CMHC will provide  you with a list of lenders who  are authorized to make NHA  loans. Approved lenders now  handle two types of NHA  loans: regular NHA loans, and  subsidized interest loans for  moderate income families  under the Assisted "Home  Ownership Program (AHOP).  Regular NHA Loans:  Regular NHA loans are  A. Conventional Mortgage __available-to-p��eople-who-are-  The-lawprovides TfiaTlf   building their own house and  mortgage lender may not  grant a loan for more than 75  per cent of the value of a house  Unless the loan is insured.  Mortgages that fall within the  75 per cent limit are known as  conventional mortgages, if  you choose a conventional  first mortgage, you will  require a cash down payment  of at least 25 per cent. If  money happens to be scarce at  the time you apply for your  mortgage loan, your mortgage lender may limit the  loan to 70 percent of value. In  this situation, you would  require a cash down payrfient  of 30 per cent.  B. NHA Mortgage Loans ������  Insured National Housing Act  (NHA) loans are available for  to those who are purchasing a  used house, subject to the  following;  (a) a maximum loan' is  prescribed in each city or area  of Canada. The maximum  ranges from a low of $40,000 in  many smaller centres to a  high of $48,000 in Toronto and  Vancouver.  Note: If a purchaser  requires more than the  maximum loan allowed in his  area, he will have t6 arrange a  second mortgage or apply for  a different type of first  mortgage known as a "high  ratio" mortgage, See "High1  Ratio Mortgages."  (b) the nainimum down  payment requh&d is 5 per cent  ��� See Page <?-4  YOUR AUTOPLAN CENTRE  AU TYPES OF INSURANCE  Seaside Plaza  886-2000  Gibsons  806-2607  Pender Haribour Really ltd  HIWAY 101 AT FRANCIS PENINSULA RD.

As a result,  some approved lenders offer a  better interest rate on NHA  loans than they ao oh high  ration loans. This differential  tgage is five years ��� i.e., it  mi^st be paid, off or refinanced  ���' at fcurreht interest rates after  five years;  (e) the     purchaser's  monthly mortgage payment  plus one-twelfth of the annual,  real estat taxes must  not  i   exceed 30 per cent of his gross  ^-.monthly income.  Note: The percentage may  be advanced to 32 or 33 per  _^ cent in rare cases "on the  recommendation- of ~the"~len-~  der.  (f) an application fee of $35  is payable;  (g) an insurance premium  ��� equal to 7/sths of 1 per cent or 1  per cent of the amount of the  loan is payable. The premijjfei-  may be added to the amount of ���  the loan if the purchaser so  stipulates   Note: NHA mortgages are  insured for the protection of  the lender, not the borrower.  If you are unable to keep up  your mortgage payments,4his  insurance will not come to  your aid.   -AHOP���Loans���from=-Ap-^  proved   Lenders:   Moderate  income families purchasing a  ~tronse~ within  certain  price  limits may obtain a govern-  ��� ment subsidy to reduce the  cost of their mortgage  payments to an approved  lender by up to $50 a month  (i.e.,   $600   a   year).   The  - ���Program.appliesonly to loans,  '  for new  construction,  in-'  eluding condominiums, and is  ���restricted"to~families"witlrat"  l6ast one dependent child.  (The maximum subsidy has  been increased to $1,200 a year  for applications received  before December 31, 1975.)  Note: In Toronto, a family  "will qualify for assistance if  ItS' "adjusted" income (i.e.,  gross income less $1,000 for a  working spouse and $300 Tor  each dependent" child) does  not exceed $16,200 and the cost  of the house does not exceed  $43,000.  2. AHOP Loans from CMH-  C:    ���    CMHC    provides  % per cent or even more  depending on market .conditions.  Note: The fact that a  lender has been designated as  an "approved -lender" by  CMHC does not meap that he  will offer you the .best rate  available for awfully insured  NHA loan. Some lenders offer  a preferred rate^ to NHA  borrowers. Others will not  distinguish in their rates  Jinancingjwasjaisanged-under.���may amount to as.much as V<i-  the AHOP program. Under  this program, families (with  at least ope dependent child)  may obtain subsidies  amounting Ao as much as  $1,307 a year, depending on  the family's income.  C. High Ratio Mortgages ���  There are three mortgage  insurance companies in  Canada which insure mortgage loans up to 95 per cent of  value for mortgage lenders:  =NpferMortgage msurahce"  Company of Canada (MICC),  the Sovereign Mortgage Insurance Company, and In-  smor Mortgage Insurance  Company will each insure up  to' 95 per cent of the first  $40,000 of value. After $40,000,  the percentage falls oil. On a  $60,000 house, MICC and  Insmore will insure up to  $53,000; Sovereign will insure  up to $53,500.  Loans insured by these  companies are known as"high  ratio" mortgages because the  loans granted exceed the 75  per cent limit of conventional  " 7" "Money-saving Tips on First"  Mortgages ��� ��� Legal fees:  When you apply to a mortgage  company for a first mortgage  loan, the mortgage company  will engage a lawyer to investigate -the title to the  property you are purchasing.  Under normal circumstances,  -ihe_anortgage company wiU_  .designate a lawyer of its  choice to do this work and this  lawyer's fee (as much as 1V4  per cent of the amound of the  mortgage ��� i.e., $375 in the  case of a $30,000 mortgage)  will be charged to you.  In many situations, you  can avoid aU or part of this fee  by asking your lawyer to act  in a dual-role ��� i.e.,as lawyer  for the purchaser and as  lawyer for 4 the  mortgage  between-NHA -loans~3nd ~non-~-companyrYou-will-be-paying  ��� your lawyer to search the title  on your behalf anyway, and he  will likely agree to report to'  the mortgage company as  'well for very little (or no)  extra charge. Ih this way, the  services (and all or part of the  ��� fea) of an extra lawyer can be.  insured or high ratio loans  Accordingly, you should shop  around for the best deal.   NHA Loan versus Con-,  ventional Mortgage Loan ���  From time to time, borrowers  find it cheaper to pay a 1 per  cent insurance premium for  an NHA loan-than to obtain a-  convential mortgage on which  no insurance permium is  payable. This situation occurs  when the NHA mortgage rate  falls % percent below the rate  on conventional mortgages.  Shop Around for the Besrt  Rate ��� A savings of V4-% per  mortgages; -High-ratio-mor-���cent-in- ig|erest-eharges may- -another.  -eliminated.  Note: This arragement is  acceptable to most first  mortgage lenders because  lawyers in most provinces  carry compulsory "errors and  omissions" insurance and the  report of one reputable lawyer  is as good as the report of  tgages differ from NHA  mortgages in that there is no  maximum loan amount. The  insurance premium on high  ratio mortgages is similar to  the premium on NHA mortgages ��� i.e., one per cent of  the loan amount (or more  depending on the company  not soundlike much When you  are shopping for a mortgage,  but it translates into a  significant sum over a period  of time. Suppose, for example,  you , were able to choose  between--three $30,000 mortgages amortized, over 25  years.

In most  cases, -however, an -existing -  mortgage cannot be paid off in  iderson  insurance premium may be j>econd_at_l_0.75_per_cent,_and_.r advance.oi_its_due_date_unless-  aWed'to^If^mortgageloan if"  the borrower so stipulates.  "High ratio mortgages may be  amortized over a periof of up  to 30 years in the case of new  houses; 25 years inthercase of  used houses. If you require a  high ratio mortgage, approach a mortgage lender for  information or contact one of  the mortgage insurance  companies.  NHA Loans versus High  Ratio Loans ��� Mortga6e  lenders feel safer with an  NHA loan than a high ratio  loan because CMHC insures  the third at 11 per cent. If you  chose the 10.5 per cent mortgage over the other two, you  would save $366 and $750  respectively ' in interest  charges during the first five-  year term of the mortgage.  Actually, you would be even  further ahead with the 10%  per cent mortgage because  your monthly payments on  this mortgage would be lower  than the payments under the  other two mortgages. You  would therefore have an extra  $5 or $10 each month to invest  or spend on other things.     v  a penalty known as a "prepayment penalty" is paid to  the lender. This penalty is  designed to compensate the  lender for his loss of interest  on the mortgage over the  balance of the mortgage term.  The penalty could cost as"  much as three to six times the  amount of the monthly  payment on the mortgage ���  i.e., $600 to $1,200 where the  monthly payment is $200.  If  you   encounter, this  situation, jou   could   get  "stuck" with the pre-payment  ���See Page C-5  FOR COMPLETE REAL ESTATE SERVICE: REAL ESTATE.

Planting trees  They have a unique method'  of encouraging - citizens to  participate in forestation or  reforestation in the Phillipines  ... if you're over 10 years old,  you plant a tree once a month,  or else!  A decree from President  Ferdinand Marcos makes it  compulsory for everyone over  10 years of age to plant one  tree a month for the next five  years. Failure to do so may  result in fines and denial of  various civil rights. Offenders  could even be 'barred ;from  public office or from work in  the legal and civil service  professions.  The aim of the decree is to  improve forests and the  environment and combat soil  erosion in the country.  ���From Page-C��5- . ��� -*  higher as the down payment  decreases. For. example, a  buyer"With.a ,down payment  equal to 20 per cent of the  purchase price may qualify  for a 12% per cent mortgage  whereas a buyer paying 15 per  cent down may end up with a  ���second mortgage at .14 per  cent or more. (Few lenders  will consider a loan where the'  down payment falls below 10  per cent.)  Whfen a buyer applies to a  lender for a second mortgage  loan, he must agree to pay the  lender's legal fees (as much  as $125 for loans of $10,000 or  _ less) plus a series of expenses-  (appraisal fee, lawyer's  disbursements) amounting to  perhaps $100.  Note: Many companies  ���fliat-appeai-tohrioaning-their-  own money are actually  middlemen i.e., they have  clients with money to lend and  they charge a fee for bringing  you and the lender together. If-  the company you are dealing  with quotes cost of $300 or  more for arrainging a loan of  $10,000 or less, chances are  you are dealing with a middleman.  4. Middleman Arranges  Mortgage: ��� A second  mortgage loan arranged  through a real estate broker  or other middleman will cost  more than a loan at-the- same  rate of interest obtained  directly from a lender. This  occurs because the mi_cU  dleman charges a brokerage  feex (or "finder's fee") for  bringing you and the lender  together.' ���  A middleman's finder's fee  may amount to~3~per cent of  the amount of the, mortgage or ���  significantly more depending  on what the middleman thinks  the "traffic will bear." Unfor-  unately,  a  buyer seldom _  knows what "lie is paying a  middleman    because    he,  doesn't pay the middleman  directly. Instead, all of the  costs of the mortgage (legal  fees   and   disbursements,  appraisal fee and finder's fee)  are lumped together and this  lump   "sum" is    paid    to  the lender who, in turn, apportions the sum among the  middleman, his lawyer and  himself.     - '  EAL ESTATE  APPRAISALS  NOTARY PUBLIC  AND LAND DEVELOPMENT LTD  DENTAL BLK%^     jg  GIBSONS        ^ v.

Bush blether  Beaver problems  By JAMIE STEPHAN STEPHEN,  Sechelt Conservation Officer  Sechelt's beaver problem would likely  have reached a happy conclusion by now if  the solution hadn't been complicated by a  people problem. As it turns out, we have  two dead beavers, which is not the  preferred response to a problem-of this  nature."  The story began last fall when the  Sechelt village maintenance department  complained that a colony of beavers were  damming a ditch along Trail Bay Avenue,  causing drainage problems and washing  out the road beneath the power lines. No  matter how many times the" village, pulled  the dam out with a backhoe, the beavers  would rebuild it. Eventually "the culvert  the trap was pulled out by an anonymous  helper and thrown back in at a different  location. Concern that somebody might  get hurt as a.result of such vandalism  overcame me, and I pulled the trap out.  Early one morning I shot and removed  two of the beavers from the slough. One  beaver at least remains, but I'm hopeful  that this one will leave on his own accord.  Except on the five cent piece, Canada's  national emblem had been pretty scarce  on the peninsula until recent years. One  long-time resident told me that when he  arrived here in 1917, there were no beavers  in the Pender Harbour area at all. Now the'  industrious rodents are'in every pond and  lake damming culverts and creeks and  9:05 p.m. by. Music from the Proms.

It ,was .increasingly  obvwusJhatj^movaLQLthe-^eavers-was-  the only reasonable solution.  A Bailey live trap, as its name implies,  is designed to catch its intended victim  and hold it alive. The trap can be likened to  a: huge clam hinged at the bottom, with  baggy wire sides and framed by heavy  aluminum jaws. In-normal sets, the trap is  concealed about eight inches below water,  and when the centrally located trigger is  touched, powerful springs snap closed the  jaws.,  v This was the trap I selected if or oui  Trail Avenue beavers. For safety reasons,  it was placed in about 14 inches of water,,  K only at night, and with large, cleat1 signs  warning of its location in.the pohd.  But a series of incidents led me to  worry that the trap's victim might not be a  beaver of ttie furbearing type made  famous by Grey Owl and the early  voyageurs but a beaver of the scout type or  a horse or a dog ���ja situation which would  be painful to the victim and acutely embarrassing to me.  My first problem occurred when, with  Infinite wisdom, somebody decided the  warning signs really weren't necessary  and ripped them up.

Water is the  lifeblood of the beaver; without it they  cannot exist. As pressures for urban expansion increase, sloughs and ponds are  reclaimed by landfill, andapartments and.  offices replace beaver lodges.  Even where the ponds remain, encircling development may make survival  difficult for the beaver. When the willows  from the slough are depleted, the beaver  must forage farther afield.  Sadly, with our insatiable demand for  more land continually encroaching on  wildlife habitat, there will always be'a  ...conflict-* man versus wildlife. In our field  there is a popular saying that seems to  sum it up: "A man who takes a muskrat  from a slough reduces the population in  Ihet slough by one temporarily. But the  man who takes the slough from a muskrat  reduces the population to zero for all  time." '       ���    ���  I wish I could shed some light on Ian  Corrance's question (Wildlife Corner,  Coast News, March 14) of why a spotted  skunk is called a civet cat. All I know is  that the f treacherous little mustelids  (weasel family) have an excellent sense of  trajectory, and boy does their scent  linger! They are alternately .known as  polecatsrclvct cals"ahd hydrophobia cats.  Apparently the latter name stems from  tho fact that tho spotted skunk is  frequently a carrier of rabies and, as a  symptom of the disease, is terrified of  water (hydrophobia ~ fear of water).  Peggy Connor called the other day to  tell mo that she had seen a Juvenile bobcat  on Redrooffs Road.
