Copy was provided through The. Herald; pictures were pro- vided by many city schools. nicipal District of Wil- low Creek, are asking to join the commission. Commission members will also discuss recommendations to the Provincial Planning Board concerning the policy on taking public reserve land at the time of subdivision. A letter from the board ta- bled at the last meeting of the c o m m i s sion recommended tailing the 10 per cent reserve each time a parcel of land is subdivided. The act at the present time is flexible and deferrals and waivers are possible. Also up for discussion is the commission's annual report, which was tabled at the last meeting. The recreation and resources development committees will give a report on river pollu- tion. It is expected the report will include a brief to be sent to the provincial and federal governments. For Safety Sake Visitors' Facilities Provided At U of L Construction Site Visitors' parking facilities and an observation point, pre- pared by the contracting firm at the University of Lethbridge west side construction site, are now available. The new service was pre- pared to make sure people do not get into dangerous areas. In addition to the facilities, there are patrolmen who work from 5 p.m. to midnight Mon- day to Friday and 8 a.m. to midnight Saturday and Sunday to make sure all people adhere to the rules for visitors in the area. A patrolman, who was work- ing the 4 p.m. to 12 p.m. shift Sunday, was not using what some persons termed the "vicious" dog. He said the dog was a house pet trained in some things but "certainly not like the city police department dog. "Patrolling the TJ of L site is not an easy matter, but it is necessary to protect the site, the contractor working on the site, and the general he said. "There are times when we could use a properly trained dog for the job, but using our dog is actually only a deterrent for the general public, not to hurt them but to protect them from themselves." He said, at first, youth on bikes and motorcycles used to give the patrolmen some trou ble, but "if you can talk to them, they co-operate real well "Actually, it seems to be the average person who is the most bothersome to the patrol- men. They cause a real traffic control problem because they drive around, over, and through barricades. "They are only concerned tax payers wondering where their money is going. Their de- sire to observe has been solved by the parking facilities and the observation point." He said, due to insurance anc contract problems, people must be kept from hurting themselves. He said there had been one case of break and entry, and some trouble with some people who had been drinking, but the real job of the patrolmen is to make sure of the safety fac- tor, to prevent vandalism to the site and machinery, and to prevent theft. Hearing Set Mike McLean 9nd Richard Price, alias Robert Coleman, both of Vancouver, were re- manded in magistrate's court to Aug. 20 at 11 a.m. for a preliminary hearing into a charge of armed robbery.

DRAFFIN'S CARRY: Max Factor Cosmetics LOVE Cosmetics Laura Secord Candies DRAFFIN'S DOWNTOWN ROD 327-3279 DISPENSARY GEORGE Trail Plans Near Completion "Gentlemen, we're close." With these words Neil An- drew, the city's parks and rec- reation department consultant in charge of a survey of recrea- tion facilities in the riverbot- tom and surrounding area, an- nounced Friday plans for a major bridle trail development were nearing completion. Part of the development would be a complex including a livery stable, equestrian acad- emy and boarding and pastur- ing facilities for horses. The trail itself would stick fairly close to the riverbottom area and would likely take three or four days to travel. Part of the trail will go through the Blood Indian He- serve. Mr. Andrew said con- tact had been made with the Blood Indian band administra- tion about the possibility of the band setting up an organiza- tion responsible for escorting trail-ride parties through the eserve. Initial reaction to the propo- sal, he said, had been very fav- orable. While no firm commit- ment by the band had been made, it was likely a decision will be made early in Septem- ber. The proposed bridle trail will fill only one of three critical needs for the city and district, he said. There is also planning to be done for motorcycle ac- tivities and nature preserves. Mr. Andrew said he was par- ticularly interested in getting the reaction of Lethbridge res- idents to a proposed develop- ment that would include a na- ture study program, along with educational, historical and sci- entific information. The concept involves guided tours, some of which will ex- tend through various areas in the riverbottom, while others will be outside the city. A planned innovation is the use of tape recorders, carried on the tour, which would play- back the tour instructions and provide historical and educa- tional information about the sites visited. Other tours would be guided by local young people, thereby providing much-needed sum- mer employment. Kishenina Tour Has 150 Persons More than 150 persons took part in the Waterton Lakes Chamber of Commerce Kishe- nina Caravan Sunday. The trip, from Fernie, B.C. through, the Kishenina Valley to Waterton, involved 43 vehi- cles. No difficulties were en- countered on the entire trip, said Emanuel Cohen, president of the Waterton chamber. A member of the regional planning commission of East Kootenay indicated his com- NOTICE JONES REFRIGERATION WILL BE CLOSED For Holiday Time Until Sept. 15th 320 3rd Street S.

Mr. Cohen said the Fernie chamber members didn't real- ize the beauty of the Kishenina Valley or how well the pro- posed provincial park fits in geographically with Waterton, until they completed the trip. It was suggested during the day long trip that oil well sites in the area be preserved as historic monuments.
