Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta -Tueidny. Augusl 10, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGF HERALD 3 WEATHER-BEATEN, DUST-CAKED HOUSES ARE GONE FOR GOOD Dust-choked community nearly dead and buried CRANBROOK (Special) Municipal District of Sparwood urban renewal project at its eastern end in Nalal-Middle- town-Michcl area, unique clear- ing of coal-dusted settlement on major highway ribbon develop- ment, may ynt be concluded by the end of this yccr. East Kootenay Equipment Ltd. of Cranbrook has just com- pleted its second demolition contract to clear 109 properties bought from owners, and last November demolished 58 aban- doned buildings. Terms of final demolition are now under con- sideration to consolidate the cleared area into a single title in the name of the Regional District of East Kootenay for possible appropriate sale. Tagg Pliolo WINS CERTIFICATE G. F. Pringle, lefl, officer-in- charge southern zone, Emergency Measures Organization, presents a cetificale oF merit 1o County 40-Mile Reeve Dan Vandenberg. EMO built up by 40-Mile chief FOREMOST (Special) Dan VandenBerg reeve of county of Forty-Mile, received the Al-l berta Emergency Measures Or- ganization of mer- it" in a ceremony held here re- cently. The coveted nward was pre- sented lo Mr. VandenBerg at recent counly council meeting by F. Pringle. officer-in charge of the southern zone of EMO. In a letter lo Mr. Vanden- j Berg, informing him of Ihe award, EMO oo-ordinator Ar-! nold J. Lavoie paid tribute lo j the exemplary allilude towards] "emergency measures" of Mr. i. VandenBerg. Mr. Lavoie continued: "If the chief magistrates of all muni- cipalities supporlrd emergency planning and prcparalion for disaslcr us you do, our wink would indeed he much easier. You have personally laken the lead hi Ihe program in your community by assuming the appointment of chairman of the emergency measures control committee and it is chiefly due lo your efforts that the Forty- Mile emergency government area was formed. "As a matter of fart, your deep involvement in our pro- gram forces us lo deviate from our normal method of present- ing this award, which is to for- ward it to the mayor or reeve of the recipient's municipality, with a request that it be pre- sented at a suilnble occasion Wo have therefore reqiieslc-d G. P. Pringle, the officer-in- charge of southern zone, lo pre- sent it to you, with the accom- panying leltc-r from our minis- ler. the Hon. Edgar II. Gcr- hart." Emergency measures co-or- dinalor for iho Forty-Mile area is Vem Arnold. Natal was the single municl pality at village status ad' joining the other two commu nilies located at 'he soft coal minehead and coking ovens in Crowsnest Pass section of B.C. which Crow's Nest Pass Coa Company Ltd. operated foi more than 60 years. The urban renewal, clearing the highway flanks of habita- tion, was undertaken at S2 mil- lion plus, one-half federal, one- rourth provincial, and the re- maining fourth locally divided. It continues within its budget. Thl renewal covered removal of 800 people in a communty of 320 properties. Nine expropriations were un- dertaken in Ihis final phase, wilh arbitration pending and several others are temporarily postponed until legitimate ;itle in some cases is brought up to date. Appraisals of properties were made independently, and at early stages of the two-year project were, In general, accep- table. Sellers were free lo lo- cale anywhere they chose, and various types of housing deve- lopment subdivisions and mul- tiple housing strategically lo- cated through this coal mine booming Elk Valley were read- ied for them. However the apparently in- flated land and real eslale sit- uation in East Kootenay over Ihe past Iwo years has shocked some of those holding out, since appraisal price will require supplementary relatively large mortage to those who have prided themselves for decades in living comfortably mortgage- free. However, improvement of en- vironment and accommodation standards should compensate. Unaffected, nor yet dis- cussed, is the frame Michel- Nalal Hospital outside the re- newal area, scheduled at one lime for phase-out when Fer- nie's new hospital now in final planning stage and approved, some 15 miles west, goes into operation. Since so much ol llic new in- dustry is developing up to 50 miles northward from Natal, wilh heavy population buildup in this direction, East Koolc- nay Hospital Regional District is reviewing this possible phase-out. Also unaffected far is the massive Iwo-slorey brick school owned by the school district, bill located on leased Crow's Nest Industry land.

Dr. Hopper. "Cans and paper litter our countryside, even in rela- tii ely inaccessible places. There are candy wrappings lodged within 50 feet of the summit of Mt. Fisher and pop cans rust on the rocks of the Lake of the Hanging Gla- cier." he said. The solution is simple. It is as oasy to take your cans, bottles and paper back with you as it is to bring them he said. During the month of Aug- ust federal and provincial enforcement officers of the Litter Act will be on the look- out for transgressors. Dr. Hopper asks, particularly, that the young people take :t upon themselves to encourage everyone to keep our country- side clean. "Remember take your gar- bage back he urges.
