Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14- August CHEC Radio's new tower Carries no lights at night Radio tower may pose threat If an aircraft were to crash into the unlit CHEC FM radio tower atop the Holiday Inn, CHEC radio would be in a very awkward position, ac- cording to Ronald MacGarva. ministry of transport airways inspector. Mr. MacGarva said his of- fice has had no indication that the tower has been completed. "It's about time we heard from them." he said. There are obstruction lights on top of the building to warn aircraft and Mr. MacGarva stated that during construc- tion those warning lights would be adequate warning for aircraft. "But once the tower reaches its full height it has to have its own lights." he added. He also said that during construction contractors would put up temporary lights. Mr. MacGarva claimed now that the tower is completed, whether or not it is in operation, it should have lights and also be painted with alternate bands of orange and white paint. "They are leaving themselves wide open if something were to happen. "It's the same thing with highway construction. The workers put up lights at night to warn motorists. If they didn't and an accident oc- curred, the driver would have a good he commented. Mr. MacGarva said his of- fice will probably send CHEC radio a letter today advising them to light and paint the tower. Another airways inspector, Larry Rodewolt. said height regulations are from the ground up. He said if a struc- ture is 80 feet above the ground it must be painted and from 150 feet and up it must be lighted. CHEC radio owner Harold Brown said the light isn't hooked up yet because the sta- tion has to get permission from "the Holiday Village People" to get up to the roof and the tower. "Anyone flying at that altitude to hit the tower would take out a lot more than just the tower." Mr. Brown said. He said, however the tower should be lit within a week or two.

"I've been gardening since I was six years he said, "and that's a long time ago." Weather and soil conditions also play a part in success or failure, he said- Mr. Allen also said he was interested in organic garden- ing, which is returning to pop- ular favor. At one time, chem- ical fertilizers and sprays were not .available to gardeners, and all gardening was done organically. Chemical fertilizers may be better for some things, such as lawns, but for flowers such as roses and dahlias the organic way is best, he said. "The thing about gardening is that it's so relaxing even when you're working hard at he said.

He's an Grain shipper summit called over slowdown The presidents of Western Canada's four major grain handling companies have been called to Saskatoon Tuesday for a meeting with federal government ministers to seek an end to the grain handlers labor dispute in Vancouver. Labor Minister John Munro and Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Canadian wheat board, claim prospects for a settlement of the issues in dispute between the ter- minal elevator operators and Local 333 of the Grain Workers Union have not im- proved. Government men have met with representatives of the parties involved but could find no solution. Harvey Tebbutt, publicity manager for the Alberta Wheat Pool in Calgary, said the presidents of the four grain handling firms were asked to the meeting because they are the heads of the boards of directors for the companies. The boards of directors have the final decision on wage improvements. "The meeting will put pressure on the boards (to set- tle the said Mr. Tebbutt. The firms involved are the Alberta Wheat Pool, Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, United Grain Growers and Pioneer Grain Co. Ltd. The Grain Workers Union has been staging a work slow- down for several weeks. Prior to the July 8 federal election, government passed an order preventing a lockout or a strike. That order ended Aug. 8 and on Aug. 11 the workers voted in favor of strike action. Canada has come under severe criticism from China and Japan for the work slow- down. Those countries claim the slowdown is halting ef- ficient shipping. Al Beattie, spokesman for the Alberta Wheat Pool, told The Herald Wednesday workers are producing at about half capacity. Two work crews are doing the work of one crew each day. older man and at one time a "fairly good ball player."

Russell ruled Sunday that Wilfred Brave Rock, 41, and Donald Rides At The Door. 20 accidentally drowned six miles northeast of Cardston on the Blood Reserve. RCMP said four Bloods were swimming in the river where it empties into St. Mary Lake when Donald Rides At The Door got into trouble. Two companions were unable to save him, or Wilfred Brave Rock, who later went under. Because of murky water, RCMP dragged St. Mary Lake, recovering both bodies shortly after noon Sunday. Police wading in bids for unclaimed bikes An estimated to bids were received by city police on 26 unclaimed stolen bicycles put up for auction this month. "It's the biggest turnout we've said Staff Sergeant Bill Brumrnitt, who was still wading through the last of three boxes full of bids today. The bikes, including several BLM meets at inn here About 270 members of the northwest region of the Bu- reau of Reclamation from the United States will meet in Lethbridge this week for the 24th annual Irrigation Oper- ators' Conference. The group was to start reg- istering at the Holiday Inn this afternoon, including rec- reational activities for early entrants. The conference will kick off Tuesday at a.m. with a bus tour east and north of Lethbridge. Highlights will include a farm operation, an alfalfa cubing plant and the horticultural research farm. Wednesday, the tour will view the southwest territory, including the St. Mary Dam, Waterton Dam and Oldman head works. Wednesday night will fea- ture a banquet at the Holiday Inn. W. J. Cousins of the Leth- bridge Historical Society, will be the speaker. Areas close to Lethbridge will be toured Thursday morn- ing prior to the conclusion of the conference. 10-speeds, were going at prices all the way from to Staff Sgt. Brumrnitt said. Successful bidders would be notified today, he added. Bidding on the bikes plus some frames and parts closed Friday. The hundreds of bidders who didn't go high enough may get another chance in 45 days, however. A recent amendment to the Municipal Government Act allows police departments to sell off unclaimed bikes every 45 days instead of waiting a three-month period. It was changed to enable police to cope with the increasing number of stolen bikes piling up in store-rooms and yards. "The biggest problem is that people don't buy a licence and we have no record of the serial said Staff Sergeant Brumrnitt. "Sometimes people can't even identify their bike. It's amazing that they won't spend to protect a bike." Another problem police are encountering, he said, is that some 10-speeds imported from Taiwan, Japan, and Italy don't even have serial numbers stamped on them. "I'd think someone buying a bike would at least have the Dealer put a serial number on it.." Staff Sgt. Brumrnitt said. Dental MtcMnic CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.
