discussed is the 10 6 and 131 mile stretch which is just east of Hellroanng Creek Mr Bertoia says the forest service feels this section of road has a poor grade and is built on poor soil He es- timated it will cost to bring it into better condition The plan being presented by forestry is to construct a new section of road further away from the river, on more suitable terrain The ad- mimsator said it is estimated to cost to build this alternate route RDEK planner Eugene Lee told the board he has talked with local forestry officials and CFI and they are in agree- ment that the alternate route is not necessary The present road is satisfactory "The new road proposal came from the Nelson office and not the local said Mr Lee "It was the feeling at the November meeting that the relocation is unnecessary We don't know why they want a new road at a higher cost "We feel this is an environ- ment issue and one road is enough A road is permanent and these two roads, if a se- cond one is constructed, will remain long after the logging is over and the area has grown up We see no need for another road Said the RDEK ad- ministrator "I think we have to oppose this The forestry feels it took a licking in our last talks about roads in the St Mary's area and is trying to get back at us in this subtle way "I think this board has to say the present road has to be upgraded to logging standards and oppose any alternate said Mr Bertoia In a letter sent to the board, R M Brock, engineering of- ficer at the regional forest service office at Nelson, stated, 'we are authorizing Crestbrook to proceed with construction of the mile 10 6 to 13 1 section of the St Mary South Forest Road along the alternate (upper) route which is regarded by all as the best in the long run Mr Brock says in his letter that the forest service is sen- sitive to the need to minimize road construction, particular- ly in valley bottoms, but "when we see very little overall development pattern for the area in question, we see very little difference in the total mileage of road to be built for the two alternatives and when the scars of logging heal there will be only one mam road and a branch up Angus Creek remaining Mr Brock said it is the responsibility of the forest service to assure the roads which are to remain forever are in the proper location He said the new upper road would be built on more stable soil and avoids a potential culvert maintenance problem at Pudding Creek 'We believe these factors will give less chance of long term environmental damage than if we use the existing road A further long-term benefit is that the road will be set back one-half a mile from the river on the average, about double the distance of the existing road from the waterway The RDEK resolution, to be sent to the forest service, strongly opposed the alternate route BILL GROENEN photo Oldtimers enjoy Christmas fun About 150 members of the Picture Butte Happy Oldtimers Club gathered m their centre Thursday evening for the annual Christmas banquet, dance and gift exchange Kootenay study proposed CRANBROOK (Special) The Regional District of East Kootenay has asked the provincial government to un- dertake a comprehensive en- vironmental and socio economic study of the Elk River Valley and Flathead River Valley areas In a resolution adopted recently, the RDEK board called for the study The board noted in its resolution that it will provide the govern- ment with a brief outlining some of the problems en- countered so far RDEK planner Eugene Lee has reported the urgent need for some guidelines for plann- ing in these areas His report told the RDEK board that major resource developments along with growth of old and new com- munities is seriously threaten- ing one of the most scenic and environmentally fragile areas of the province Unprecedented resource exploration and development have been taking place in these two large valleys for several years said his report He says major coal mining activities have created tremendous impact on the total environment of these valleys The effects of these major resource use activities have not been limited to the physical environment of this sub-region These resource exploitations and rapid development activities have also created tremendous strains on the old and new communities and have created many social and economic problems in the local communities Mr Lee says this is a clear example of the lack of com- prehensive regional planning and lack of an understanding of the implications of major resource use decisions He says that continued ex- ploitation in these areas could lead to the disappearance of any of the valleys' beauty and recreation potential The only hope is to have comprehensive planning policies adopted by the province The planning department head, further noted that with the world energy shortage constantly under discussion, attention is going to turn more toward the resource potential of these valleys "The Elk River Valley and Flathead River Valley are two of the most scenic and en- vironmentally fragile areas in the province. his report states "The large scale development activities in these two valleys in the last several years have clearly shown many of the adverse effects and destruction of these qualities to a certain ex- tent "These two valleys still con- tain some of the best potential provincial and national park sites as well as prime wildlife habitats However, these two valleys are fast approaching to a point where these qualities will be permanently lost if no comprehensive policies are adopted Dad's Pop Shop and Mexican Handicraft CARDSTON Beth Jorgensen and Lorraine Segboer are pleased to announce the opening of Dad's Pop Shop and Mexican Handicraft in the former John's Billiards premises.
