Phone 223-2024 Taber goes after better Highway 3 TABER Taber Chamber of Commerce has concluded that it would like to see more haste in the upgrading of Highway 3 between Fincastle, east of Taber, and Seven Persons, 16 miles west of Medicine Hat. Norman A. Long said he had had the opportunity to speak to Allan Warrack, minister of lands and forests, and while highways was not his responsibility, they had spent considerable time discussing Highway 3. "I feel it's time the provincial government got out of this 10 miles per year upgrading program and put out a contract for finishing the upgrading all in one Mr. Long told the chamber "It would save them millions of dollars m the long run particularly if they build another two lanes adjacent to the present Highway 3 route. Then they would wind up with a.divided four-lane road with no disruption in traffic." President Gordon S. Saunders announced a change of date for the next general chamber meeting. It will be held May 2 at Chinook Gardens. Representatives of Coaldale holiday Monday COALDALE council has agreed to give the town office staff a holiday on Easter Monday.

Chris Burton is coach Pincher folks don't want village near West Castle PINCHER CREEK (Staff) Despite promises of tax and economic benefits, residents in the Pincher Creek area seem firmly opposed to the development of a million recreational' village southwest of the town. About 140 people, spent almost five hours this week at a public hearing in Pincher Creek giving their reasons why White Spruce Landsco Ltd. should not be allowed to develop a acre site east of .West Castle. The company is proposing a 200-lot development for private cottages, surrounded by about acres which will be "left in an improved natural state." Land involved is southwest of Beaver Mines, on portions of Sections 19, 20, 29 and 30 'near the forest reserve. Max Gibb of Lethbridge, one of the major shareholders in the company, told the meeting the development would bring economic and tax benefits to. the area and a zoning bylaw would prohibit future random development. He said in a Herald interview before the meeting that if the plan is approved, tourism in the area would increase, but other such developments could only locate in areas zoned for that purpose. However, Bob Toney, a councillor for the Municipal District of Pincher Creek, where the recreational village would be located, said the increased population density resulting from White Spruce is a real cause for concern. And, he said, approval could result in other development that would be detrimental to the area. A brief from the Table Mountain branch of Unifarm stated that tourist areas like Beauvais Lake, which could be used by everyone, are preferable to private tourist resorts. And while Mr Gibb has promised the company will provide sewer and water services according to environment department specifications, residents downstream from the proposed site expressed a fear that Beaver Mines Creek could not meet the increased demands for water. They were also worried that sewage from the development might pollute the stream Of the 23 briefs presented to the meeting, only one, from Mr Gibb. supported the plan. Tlu- District WAVY BORDER SURROUNDS PROPOSED SITE Coaldale may face mill rate of 67.5 Building rules toughened COALDALE (HNS) It you move a house or any other type of building in Coaldale you need a permit. So says town council. Recently some buildings have been re-located without a permit. The owners involved will be prosecuted, council decided. Also, those erecting metal sheds on their property will first have to obtain a permit In the past, the bylaw indicated permits were not necessary. It was noted that many such metal sheds have been going up, council says. A general assessment of the town is due for this year but the town has been notified it will not be done until at least next year. It appears the provincial assessment department is too busy to undertake it in 1974. Only additions and new buildings erected in the year are assessed each year Tokariuk top speaker COALDALE Tokariuk of the Coaldale district is a good speaker. At a recent speech competition of the 4-H Beef Calf Club he took top place in the junior division.

Gary will compete in the April 20 South-west Alberta final speak-offs for 4-H members, to be held at the Lethbridge Community College COALDALE (HNS) Final 1974 budget was not approved at the Monday meeting. Paring will still have to be done, council says.. It was expected the municipal tax levy will be about 67.5 mills compared with 42 last year. Last year the total mill levy was 84. One mill in 1974 equals about In 1973 it was about The increase is due to allocation of 14 more mills for recreation, about 10 mills of these are for recreation facility debentures, the Coaldale and District Sportsplex pool and ice arena. Part of the mill increase is attributed to the deficit in 1973 and another as projected for water facilities in 1974. For the present, the water rates will remain the same, council noted, with some consideration to further study given. No announcement has been made as to a tax discount tor those who pay their taxes early. Last year it was 10 per cent for two months after the tax notices were sent out. In previous years, a discount was given on a declining scale from 10 down to two per cent over two month intervals District j calendar The Alberta Caravan exhibits will be at Nobleford today with viewing by the general public scheduled for 6-30 o'clock tonight Deadline for the Nobleford Home and School Association talent show is today with the show scheduled to be held in the Noble Central School gym Friday, April 26 QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Cirtifted Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg.
