Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuevday, August 6,1974-THE LETHBRrOGE HERALD-15 The South In short Utility service pondered CRANBROOK (Special) - City council has decided to snub the provincial department of municipal affairs because it might be slow in providing Sewerage Facility Assistance Act grants for the Wattsville - Little Van Home area. Council will bypass the department and charge residents in the area on a local improvement basis for the service. This means Little Van Home residents, largely modest income people, are now contemplating whether they can afford the service. Some say they might have to sell their properties and relocate. When the area was annexed by the city, residents thought there was a chance of filling in and upgrading city water and sewer services. Most of them have septic tanks. A local meeting decided to petition the city for these services on a local improvement basis but when they discovered, the cost of their share they asked for provincial assistance through the recently - established SFAA. The department of municipal affairs indicated the area might be eligible for help but council has decided to go ahead on its own and try to hold petitioners to the original outlined terms. People in the area have frontages of up to 130 feet. Taber court load reduced TABER (HNS) - Town council has received a police report for June which shows 71 prosecutions in provincial judge's court here. Forty - six of these were infractions under the Alberta Liquor Control Act. An additional 71 people were accommodated overnight in police cells and released in a sober condition the following morning. Seven Criminal Code cases drew convictions: three for impaired driving, two for creating a disturbance in a public place and one each for public mischief and resisting arrest. The charge of resisting arrest was against a parolee from the Prince Albert penitentiary who had been released two days earlier to work in the sugar beet fields. The court heard there was some trouble placing him in the police cell. Highway traffic convictions dropped from 35 in May to 18 in June. Seventeen motor vehicle accidents, 10 of which were minor, resulted in one injury and property damages totalling $3,436 for June. Seventy - one prosecutions in provincial judges court in June is a marked reduction from the usual number. Over the past five years June prosecutions have ranged from 111 to 173. Sparwod dump a headache SPARWOOD (Special) - Residents of a trailer park 18 miles from the District of Sparwood dump, near Highway 3, are creating garbage problems. Aid. Frank Fairclough told a recent meeting of the Regional District of East Kootenay. He says, "They bring their garbage on their way to work. If the dump is locked, they dump on the highway and the highways department is after us. If it is open, they set it on fire and the pollution control branch is after us." The District of Sparwood council thinks some problems would disappear if the dump, about two miles from Sparwood, was not located on the main highway. RCMP caravan to visit Nanton NANTON (HNS) - The Hamilton Junior High School students' RCMP caravan will be here Aug. 13. It depicts 100 years of Alberta and RCMP history. It will stop at the J. T. Foster School parking lot. The display was partially financed by a grant from the Alberta RCMP Century Celebrations Committee. Dr. James MacGregor, committee chairman, says the project is "one of the most remarkable ever to come to the attention of the committee." It was iniated in 1972 by Bruce Haig, teacher at the Lethbridge school. It involved more than 80 Grades 8 and 9 students aged 13 to 14. Much of the travelling exhibit comprises slides and tapes made by the students in May, 1973, when they retraced the trek of the original NWMP from Dufferin, Man., to Fort Macleod.

Power line fate to be told later . Recommendations by the Energy Resources Conserva^i^ tion Board on Calgary Power's proposed Crowsnest Pass power line should be made public in a couple of weeks, board member Vern Millard said Friday.

Foundation lodge requests Taber learns convince Russell of need about agri'bank TABER (HNS)-A first for Western Canada will be the agri - bank concept being introduced by the Royal Bank of Canada when its new branch is opened here in October. The announcement was made at a recent reception and dinner at the Heritage Motor Hotel. The bank's agricultural departinent manager, Keith R. Sveinson of Calgary, told some 60 civic, community and business leaders of the plans. The agri - bank program will involve the use of a mini -van equipped with office furniture which "will travel all of the rural roads from Brooks to Warner and from Lethbridge to Medicine Hat bringing banking service to the individual farmers." Mr. Sveinson said this program was introduced in-Ontario a few years ago. Six vans are in use there and there is no reason the program cannot be duplicated , in the West, he said. Commenting on the bank's building program here, he said construction had been delayed but that the contractor has agreed on an October opening date. Introduced to the informal dinner, meeting were Taber branch manager Pat Phillips and his wife Lorna who have already purchased a home here. "The Phillips come from Calgary. Said Mr. Sveinson: "We see a great future for Taber and its district, and we want to be a part of it." Speaking of community involvement, he told the people that the agri-bank is equipped with a public address system which is available for whatever use it might be required in the community. Requests for senior citizen lodges in Lethbridge and Coaldale were favorably received by Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell says Don LeBaron administrator of city lodges for the Green Acres Foundation. "We weren't expecting a yes or no at this point of course," said Mr. LeBaron, "but Mr. Russell agreed we had a real need and our request was justified." Jn the meeting with the municipal affairs minister who was in the city last week for a three - day visit, the foundation presented briefs asking for 65 - bed lodges in Lethbridge and in Coaldale, as well as an expansion to the Golden Acres Lodge, one of three now being operated in the city. "We feel strongly that it's our turn again," said Mr. LeBaron. The foundation's brief said the waiting list for senior citizens' lodge accommodation number 60 in Coaldale and 88 in Lethbridge. "Any home that's built here, we'll have filled im- mediately," said Mr. LeBaron. "We've never had a vacancy here, not even for one day." He said there is apparently some chance the provincial cabinet could speed - up the decision making process and reach a decision on the requests this fall so the local foundation board can begin working with architects for a spring tender call.
