Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Deeembw S, 1978 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor ALTHOUGH it sometimes gives us all cause for wonder, the future of this country is indeed in 6 If the young of Alberta are anything as enthusias- tic about this province as a few of the young in Saskatchewan, we've nought to fear. The Alberta tourist office received the following letter from Willowbrook, Sask. Willowbrook, for those few of you who aren t from Saskatchewan, Willowbrook is down around that country of Yorkton, Salteoats, and Ituna. It's that desolate strip you suffer through on your way to the big cities like Winnipeg and Toronto, and say "is this the The letter reads as follows: Dear Sirs: My secretary and I have studied Alberta and it s surroundings After studying this information we have decided that we would like to open a tourist and in- formation office, with your permission, of course. My secretary and I are willing to distribute the Alberta tourist kit, free, to more Canadian and foreign people. My secretary is 11 years old in grade six and I am twelve years old in grade 8. I so hopefully hope your answer for us to form a office will be yes. Yours sincerely Pres. Glen M. Lemchuk Sec. Wendy Chizma The tourist office replied that in order to open such an operation one needed all the accoutrements of a business office. Not to be daunted by one failure and in true pioneer spirit of Saskatchewanites, the following letter sped back through the mails. Dear Sirs: Receiving your letter, we have found that we can- not make the requirements for a travel information bureau. So we wish to drop the subject out of our mind completely. I thank you for your help and so does my all is I got to conclude is to say thanks and maybe we may be able to have one when we grow up. Yours truly, Glen M. Lemchuk What Glen doesn't know is that by the time he grows up he won't be reading about Alberta and writing about Alberta, he'll be living in Alberta. FOR THE RECORD there's been enough griping and complaining in this city about inconsider- ate clots who let traffic pile up while they wait for_a car to back out of parking places so they can have it. One traffic snarl could have been easily avoided Friday if the persons involved had just turned the corner and gone into the Car Park. It's the feeling of odd man out as you sit in the middle of an intersection with a car coming at you broadside as the light changes, and you pray he's had his brakes checked recently, the streets are well gravelled and his hostility is well harnessed. The only solution since police officers obviously can't be on every corner every minute; is to take down the offending motorist's license number, and report him or her. He may not realize what he does by holding up traffic, but I suspect there are those who just don't care whom they inconvenience or put in danger as long as they park the eight- or ten-foot width of the sidewalk from the door they wish to enter.
