Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Police resign over money at Coaldale Wednesday, December 11, 1974 THE LtTHBRiouc HCKALU Big mobiles spark Claresholm dissent COALDALE (HNS) Three-quarters of the Coaldale Town Police have resigned effective Dec. 31, leaving one constable for persons. Resignations of Chief Victor Mayer, and Constables Randy Scott and Tim Utas were read Monday at a town council meeting. Only Const. Art Nernberg will remain. Reasons given during the council meeting for the resignations were: long hours of work, extra time on calls without compensation, no monetary or day compensa- tion for work done on statutory holidays and the present salary range. Mayor Al Blakie said the people should decide what kind of police coverage they want. If they want 24-hour coverage they will have to pay for it, he said. No other department has to deal with the same type of people as the police, added the mayor. Town administrator Earl Mcllroy later said the town would hire a chief of police and two new constables. He Fire engine purchased at Cardslon CARDSTON (Staff) The Cardston Municipal District council Monday purchased a fire truck from the Saskatoon Fire Engine Com- pany Ltd of Calgary. Council decided to sell its present truck, recently equipped with a new tank and engine, to the Magrath volunteer fire department for the trade-in price offered by Ihe Calgary firm. Delivery on the new machine will be within six weeks, said the sales agent. It has a 361 cubic-inch engine and a 600-gallon tank that can be refilled in less than four minutes would not reveal the town's police salary scale. Mr. Mcllroy said he under- stood the three peace officers had other jobs arranged. Cardston road costs ran high CARDSTON (Staff) The Cardston Municipal District roads should be in good shape if last summer's expenditures by individual councillors on road improvements are any indication. Last spring, councillors decided to try to hold the line at each but only divi- sion seven, now represented by Coun. Mike Schneyder of Magrath, came close. Expenditures in this divi- sion were for govern- ment grant road work and 528 for patching for a total of 71 o iy. With government grant work listed flirt anJ patching second, expenditures in the other divisions were: Division one, and divi- sion two, and division three, and division four, and division five, 583 and and division six, and Coun. Bryan Smith of Hillspring urged secretary treasurer R. W. Legge to start immediately to ask the provincial government for a grant to repair secondary roads that are breaking up un- der heavy traffic. Council agreed that if the government can afford to build a new highway from Lethbridge to Standoff it can upgrade the MD secondary roads "We have had nothing for secondary said Mr Legge. CLARESHOLM (HNS) Claresholm town council has tabled for investigation a complaint by citizens over allowing establishment of double-wide modular homes in a new subdivision here. A delegation of residents from the "Alberta Housing Corporation Sub-divison" on the west side of the town approached council seeking a change in the zoning bylaw to disallow modular homes from establishing among frame houses. W. R. Hodgson, a resident of the area, told council the whole area will be harmed if council "allows double-wides to go in next to expensive homes." Council- decided to turn the matter over to its planning committee for study. The committee is compris- ed of Mayor Ernie Patterson, Coun. Don Johnstone, an ex- ecutive in a mobile home building firm, and Coun. Esper Esperson, manager of Crown Lumber, a supplier of house building materials. Mayor Patterson told coun- cil there should be no problem with the councillors' outside interests as their job was only to collect facts on the situation. Concern over the establish- ment of the modular homes arose when two of the 129 lots in the area were sold to owners of modular homes. About 25 houses have been built in the area. The town, acting as an agent for AHC, has the right to sell any lot if the building meets national building standards. The town's residential zoning bylaw does not differentiate between deluxe and moderate homes. The "double-wide" homes meet the national building code, Coun. Johnstone said. The homeowners delegation complained that the "trailer type" homes are going in at random, and there should be a set place for them. Coun. Esperson said if the modular homes are allowed to locate anywhere in a residen- tially zoned area "we may end up with a big trailer park." Coun. Johnstone said: "These houses can get the same mortgage loans as other houses." Lots began selling in the area in the summer of 1973.

The town of Blairmore is considering buying the carv- ing and setting it up inside the fence which protects the old steam dinkey, a steam locomotive used in the mine yards here for many years. The miner was carved from a fir log which came from a tree estimated to be 300-years old. The project was perform- ed in 1967 as a centennial pro- ject. Since then, the statue has stood in Mr. Shannon's yard. The artist does much interpretive carving from juniper roots, specializing in faces. He attempts to show the nationalities now living in the Crowsnest Pass. His work is sold across Canada. Many miners walking down his lane have noted the nine-foot carving of the un- dergrounder and said, "I wish I had him for my partner in the Mr. Shannon said.
