Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, December 17, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 Fort received big share Wooden Roller Found on a mountainside south of Burmis this roller is an example of the ingenuity of homesteaders who settled the Crowsnest Pass and foothills. The roller is about 10 feet long and more than two feet around. It was formed from a single Douglas fir log. The framework, fitted and spiked together, was fitted around a single tree for a team to draw the unit over the grounds to be rolled. All iron work on the unit was done by hand. Abandoned on the side of a mountain, a few more years of weathering will see the relic of the past crumble and turn to dust. Signs scream 'impaired' to RCMP constables RCMP members watch for tell tale signs which might indicate an impaired driver, according to the commander of the High River detachment Sgt. Del Langenberger cited failure to dim lights, to cancel turn signals and weaving down the road as examples of signs which indicate an im- paired driver Contrary to popular belief, vou can have less than 08 per cent alcohol in your blood and still be an impaired driver, he told about 40 students at Senator Riley High School here. Any person who is impaired while having the care and control of a vehicle, is guilty of a criminal offence, and such persons will have a criminal record if convicted, he said He said nearly half the total number of fatal motor vehicle accidents today involve li- quor. He added that too often liquor is used as a standard to "measure manhood by." "Liquor isn't much of a standard to measure anything he said, "because every individual's resistance or tolerance is different Weight, size, and muscle distribution affect the percen- tage of alcohol present in the blood, while environment and body chemistry affect the in- dividual's reactions to alcohol, he told the Grade 10 audience. Sgt Langenberger said the breathalyzer is used to deter- mine the percentage of alcohol present in the blood of an individual who is suspected of impaired driving. Attention Farmers!
