Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Tgcldtiy, Ausjuil 11, 1770 THE LETHBRIDGC HERALD 3 Lady Rose Stops At Bamfield; Tourists View Sir James Douglas, Shop And Chat. I Look With Awe At Gray By D'AUCY UICKARD Herald Staff Writer Here we look from the bal- cony ot Wickaninnish Inn at the beauty of Long Beach, stretching to a vanishing point on the horizon. Long Beach, a stretch ot some 12 miles ot hard-packed sand. How can such beauty exist? Long Beach is the feature at- traction of the existing provin- cial park, Wickaninnish Beach Provincial Park. Hop in Ernie Bach's boat and see the sea lions. They will roar a welcome to you. Watch them dive from Hie rocks. Look at the bulls. Gruff old beasts, magnificent in body and soul. HEAL OR.PHONY? Now I look close at those sea lions. I look really close. And I'll swear those sea lions are real. Some skeptics might say they're just stuffed rath sawdust and growling electron- ic growls. It's a phony world. I 'don't blame them for thinking that. Maybe they think the B.C. travel and industry depart- ment put a bunch of stuffed sea lions out on those rocks to promote tourism. Let them Have their opinion; I have mine. I'll swear to it, those beasts are real. Magnificent Long Beach. My travel agent said: "Frankly, son, it is our busi ness to see that everywhere is over-run with tourists." Please don't ever over-run Long Beach. Leave it the way it is unspoiled, romantic, rugged, tranquil, its shining sands reflecting the ever- changing mood of the sea. HIPPIES The Driftwood Village at Wreck Bay belongs to the "hippies" who have erected houses out of driftwood. They staple plastic bread wrappers together for shelter. One cou- ple fro m West Vancouver drove their small European car on to the sand and became stuck. "Hippies" circled, saying not a word. Shovels appeared. Soon the car was out. They of- fered a bill with their thanks. It was refused. We were off to Tofino. They told us about Radar Hill where you can look out to sea and spot the Russian factory ships. Yes, Canadian fishermen see them at close quarters. Rus- sian trawlers and mother boats. They're 12 miles out. Ice packers (factory ships) pro- cess1 the salmon on the spot. Russians are not supposed to take Coho, said one fisherman. They're only allowed to net the bottom fish, perch. At Tofino you may visit Fort Defiance, see the incoming fishing fleet or spend a mor- ning at the West Coast Mu- seum. You'll meet Ken Gibson. He spent two years searching for the site of Fort Defiance, finally unearthed it in the sum- mer of 1966. McKenzie Beacli near Tofino village is another play area of unsurpassed beauty. I have always enjoyed Brit- ish Columbia travel, ever since 1947 when I hitchliiked from Vancouver to Kamloops and rode a freight back home. The Fraser Canyon looked good to me then, even if the view some- tunes went black when we whipped through the tunnels. But Vancouver Island is something else. You'll have a whale of a time. Travellers Bask In Warm Sunshine On Lady Rose A Walk Along The Beach Near Wickaninnish Inn Three Mile Addition To Kootenay Pipeline CRANBROOK, B.C. (Special) Alberta Natural Gas. oper- ator the 96 British Columbia miles of 36-inch export line to the southwest United States has announced a three-mile loop addition immediately to its Rocky Mountain Crossing near Moi-rissey in Flal'head comer of B.C.

Price of Canada Ltd., Calgary, and resident engineer at Fernie headquarters will be Elmer Mychaluk. Projects in- clude other improvements ad- vanced because of imminence of Libby Dam pondage flood- ing which would compound pipelaying difficulties in this mountain stretch. These are under-rivcr cross- ings of the Elk River in Elko vicinity and the Kootenay River in Wardner vicinity. These two waters will rise to a maximum feet altitude under the Columbia River Treaty for Libby Dam's 42 miles of pondage into Canada, though level variation between maximum and minimum is 172 feet. In flood the comparatively narrow Kootenay in Wardner vicinity may go up (p a half mile in places which would in a k o additional underground pipeline installation consider- ably more difficult and costly.

Deadline Extended On Petitions COALDALE (HNS) North Coaldale residents will be given more time to return pe- titions for planned water and sewer extensions. The deadline date was origin- ally July 27 but the town office has extended it.

School Boards May Amalgamate CRANBROOK, B.C. (Special) Amalgamation of School Districts of Fernie, Cranbrook, Kimberley, Lake Windermcra and Creston for administration by a single board will be con- sidered here at a B.C. School Trustees Association liaison committee meeting of these boards in September. Donald Brothers, minister of educat i o n, recently suggested that East Kootenay boards consider amalgamation, but stressed the initiative must be theirs. At present each has its own board headquarters and staff with eight to 12 elected trustees as executive. Heavily Industrialized K i nv berley, with Cominco and Crestbrook pulpmill, and Fer- me with Kaiser and Crow's Nest Industries Ltd., have an appreciably lower school tax rate. In 1969 Kimberley's school mill rate was 30.33 com- pared with Cranbrook's 35.04 mills. Amalgamation of the five boards would favor Cranbrook, which in a sense serves as liv- ing quarters for the East Koofenays. Lake fl'indermer.e District would also benefit. Creston at present is part of a West Kootenay school district flank- ing both sides of K o o t e nay Lake, including Cominco's Riondel operation. However, Council Relaxes Side Yard Rides SPARWOOD (HNS) Spar- wood council has decided to re- ax regulations governing side yard clearance for carports and garages. Council moved (hat side yard clearance would >e reduced from five feet to three feet only if the garage or caroort is to be erected as an auxiliary building at the rear f the lot. If the structure is to be at- ached to Hie house, there must a five foot clearance as stated in the bylaw. Council -uled that all auxiliary build- ings must be built at the rear if the lot and must be a mini- mum of eight feet from the main building and a minimum )f three feet from the rear lot ine with a three-foot side yard learance. the amalgamation would pen- alize tlie two major industrial areas, Kimberley and Fernie. Similar convenience amalga- mations through the province are under consideration which resulted in a BCSTA commit- tee formation with its vice- president, Peter Powell chair- man, and members including its educational consultant Nor- man Robinson, and its statis- tics and analysis officer, Wal- ter Sawadsky. At the meeting here they will ask approval by the boards, involved, which would be prerequisite to im- plementation by the depart- ment.
