Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, December 14, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 A review Wildlife photos enjoyable By D'ARCY RICHARD Herald District Editor Granum wildlife photographer Ed Cesar previewed two motion pic- tures at the Golden Mile Drop In Centre in Lethbridge this week, both enjoyable as ice cream and apple pie homemade of course. Rocky Mountain Perennials and Songs and Tales of Yesteryear were filmed in color by Mr. Cesar in Southern Alberta for the CBC- TV Two national showings are coming up. Songs and Tales of Yesteryear was made with the help of a Canada Council grant. My own feeling is that some of the sequences in the film are too short. Other people might like many, many animals in short, quick shots. Perhaps the man in the cutting room feels this makes an exciting show. Personally, I prefer to watch one par- ticular species for a longer time There is a tremendous variety of animals and birds in Rocky Mountain Peren- nials 1 liked them all, mice to grizzlies. The color is superb The camera remains on flowers, trees and grass for longer periods than the animal se- quences, achieving a restful, poignant quality. My favorite shots were elk watched by a pack of coyotes, a magnificent dark moose filmed against a snow backdrop between Lake Louise and Banff, and moun- tain goat the only beast to stay above the timberline in winter months Songs And Tales of Yesteryear has some ex- cellent close ups of the human face rugged and sen- sitive character. The background music fits in superbly, opening with The Red River Valley and ending with Blue Canadian Rockies About 50 oldtimers at the drop in centre obviously en- joyed the music. They joined right in And they laughed at the fighting roosters. The eight horse hitch and olher shots of horses working in the field were very nostalgic. Long beach With the water level at Park Lake at a seasonal low the beach is massive. It's an attractive spot for a weekend hike and as soon as the temperature drops a bit, the ice should make great skating.

Phone 328-4080.327-2272 Council recently heard a letter from Morrison Maierle, Inc consulting engineers, recommending acceptance of a bid from Cop Construction Com- pany of Billings for construc- tion of a booster station, a pipeline from the future water plant to a holding tank and a founadation for the proposed tank The firm also recommended acceptance of a bid from Pittsburgh Des Moines Steel Company of Provo, Utah, for construction of the storage tank. Council took no action on the eight bids submitted on the two projects.

Taber businessmen favor early closing TABER (HNS) The Taber Businessmen's Association voted this week to abandon night shopping and close Wednesday afternoons as soon as the Christmas shopping period is over. The merchants voted 19 against extended shopping hours and 16 for the proposal. "So right after Christmas we will go back to the shopp- ing hours we had says Joe Orban, Jr., TBA president. "Please don't ask me for how long." Four TBA members did not vote. The existing bylaw, which has been the centre of much controversy in the com- munity, allows stores to stay open every day until 6 p.m. ex- cept Wednesday when stores close at noon. Merchants open their doors here at 8 a.m. Asked if merchants here are in fact gaining much free publicity from the annual controversy, Mr. Orban said, "It is actually a very serious matter. As far as I am concerned it is definitely not a promotion gimmick That is not the way to promote a com- Water system project aided by mild fall CRANBROOK (Special) Construction of the 5 million Joseph, Gold Creek water system for the City of Cranbrook is back on schedule, thanks to continuing mild weather and light snow. A concrete mix strike dur- ing prime construction weather last summer delayed the project by six weeks.

The planned suspension of concrete work from December to March was changed to an intensified work program by the subcontrac- tor. Antler Construction Ltd.'s pipeline installation is con- tinuing at a rapid clip, hindered only by slow delivery of pipe The 30 inch supply mainline from the reservoir is in, and a 16-inch main on South 14th Avenue to South 17th Street, along with a 12 inch main on South 7th Street through Pinecrest, lowest sec- tion are virtually in.
