Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, April a, LCI nemwuc i The South in short Accident policy passed FOREMOST A policy regarding student accidents was passed by the April meeting of the County of Forty Mile School Committee. It states that when teaching assignments involve the possibility of student accidents, supervision should be that which a reasonably prudent person would exercise under the circumstances. It will be the duly of every teacher to report all injuries to pupils or teachers to the principal, and to complete the appropriate accident reports forms. In cases of emergency, the teacher is expected to use good judgment as to what to do. but the school committee does not undertake to pay any medical bills incurred. Teachers are not permitted to take sick or injured children home during school hours, unless authorized by the principal. If it is necessary for the principal to take a seriously injured child home or to a hospital or doctor when the parents cannot be contacted, he must arrange for adequate care of the child and will receive mileage at regular rates which will later be charged to the parents.

At the same time, Coun. William George McFall urged that the secretary go ahead with his plan to have a representative from the Alberta School Trustees Association at a future meeting to advise the council on data processing. Coun. Marg Dragland asked, "Can't a simpler bookkeeping method be used rather than spend money like Coun.

Marg Dragland's efforts to broaden recreation and picnic areas in the County of Forty Mile are paying off. Friday the county council took steps to put a public road through to Forty Mile Lake, about 12 miles north of Foremost. The road access will be required in Section 14, Township 8. Range 11 on a parcel owned by Mrs. Christian Lantz. The exact location of the access road was not pinpointed but it appears to be in the southwest quarter. Secretary-Treasurer Roy Wallman will contact the department of lands and forests and the St. Mary River Irrigation District regarding the road and recreational area plan. This action follows a tour April 8 by 20 people, including Councillors Dragland, Frank Romeike, Ed Torsher, and William Kenneth Babe; Utility officer's duties considered She was referring to a Burroughs machine. Apparently newer equipment is needed because there is a demand now for more detailed analyses. Said Reeve Dan VandenBerg: "Education wants things broken down more than we used to have." "They want said Coun. Dragland, "but do they have to have answered Reeve VandenBerg and Coun. Romeike in unison. The county has about properties but only from to 1.600 taxpayers, said Mr. Deislets. Accounting data recorded on cassettes and buzzed through the computer could enable every taxpayer to receive tax notices detailed right down to the last quarter section if the county so desired. He said the computer couid provide Canada Pension Plan calculations. Unemployment Insurance Commission calculations and print out all fixed deductions. T4 slips would be prepared much more easily. The machine sells for less trade of for (includingsoftware charges of Council learned it would cost a year to use such a machine on a contract basis. Coun. Russell Scratch suggested council appoint a committee to work with the secretary-treasurer to evaluate the machines. Mechanical gopher-killer discussed FOREMOST (Staff! Coun. Ed Torsher is investigating a mechanical gopher poisoner. He told his fellow councillors he is sure he read about such a machine somewhere. Reeve Dan Vanden Berg said it is not new to him. Back in the 1930s he had an extra drill box on his seeding machine that would drop gopher poison into the tire track. He put a round of gopher poison on every field. Coun. William George McFall said he prefers to use propane gas piped deep into the burrows by a long hose. Another councillor cautioned him not to drop a match down tiie hole after the operation. "A 20 gallon tank that will put propane in a lot of holes. I will tell you." said Coun. McFall. "Where do you bring up a complaint about shooting off loo many coyotes'1" asked Coun. Marg Dragland. "Now we have got too many gophers." She was advised to contact fish and game groups for help. FOREMOST (Staff) Coun. Frank Romeike brought the rejected proposal to hire a utilities officer back to the County of Forty Mile council Friday and said the county needs one "If it can be shown this man can be used effectively and not to sit on his butt." The county council decided Feb. 22 it" didn't need a utilities officer and therefore would pass on the provincial government's offer to grant per annum to pay his salary and expenses. Friday Reeve Dan VandenBerg submitted once again that there would be nothing for a utilities officer to do in the Countv of Forty- Mile. In other areas of the province, these officers are busy helping to organize natural gas co-operatives. The three co-ops in the County of Forty Mile have been operating for many years. But Coun. Romeike says the county should hire one and Ihen decide what his duties would be. "The county could employ the person, get the funds, and let his duties be spelled out by the suggested Coun. Romeike. Countered Coun. Dragland: "Doesn't sound like a lol of money when you can't put your finger on what this fellow would be "I think we are wrong by not getting an absolutely clear-cut interpretation of his duties would be." said Coun. Romeike "Could he report back to the asked Coun. William George McFall. "Just for the sake of saving lives. Would that be Coun. Homeike said "this fellow would be in charge of the operation." Reeve VandenBerg wondered if it was a good idea to spend of the taxpayers' money "just because we are getting a grant for it." He noted the co- ops are already organized. But Coun. McFall said, "I think Frank is on the right track. The position could be used for other things, not just what is in this letter (a letter from the provincial department clarifying the duties of a utilities communities hope to solve dog problems COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) Towns in the Crowsnest Pass are ganging up to clear up the dog problem in the area. The incorporated areas in the district have joined forces to hire a dog control officer to look alter the "Pass towns and this week Mayor John Holyk received affirmation from Phil Stonehouse. administrator of Improvement District No. 5. that this area would also participate in the plan. The will share the cost of the dog control officer. It will supply its own pens but the town will be responsible for heat, light, building and operating the pens.

They visited the lake, Granlea Dam. Red Rock and Golden Sheep parks. Coun. Dragland said a road into Red Rock was also discussed. Work will be done to develop the Forty-Mile Lake area and with a view to raising the level of the lake. Said Coun. Dragland: "It suits some people. Maybe not everybody but some people can't afford to go to Waterton every week. But as it is there is still a good-sized lake there. "I would move that steps be taken to obtain access to Forty-Mile said Coun. Romeike. He was supported. Coun. Babe said development of the lake would come faster if a highline ditch were constructed. Coun. Romeike agreed the county would be prepared to up the tab for any survey work." Secretary-treasurer Wall- man said the provincial government is going to take a look at Golden Sheep Park this summer with a view to realizing its recreation potential.
