Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 31, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta POT-LUC By D'ARCY Thuisdoy, Docombor 31, 1970 _ THE IETHBRIDGE HDRAID 3 ewer service rates hiked rpiME wails for no man. As passes away, Pot-Luck A pauses for a poetic little poem. It was handed to us by associate editor Bill Hay and handed to him by Dave and Ola Stevenson of Lcthbridge. Dave, retired railroader, had some fun trying to get a railway clock but he finally came up with a ticker bound to please the most astulc antique collector. As a matter of fact, the clock he obtained is earmarked for their daughter- in-law. There's something friendly about a clock. Hercs Dave and Ola's poem. OLD STATION CLOCK The old station clock with its round open face Has looked down from the wall in many a place, And stored in ils memory the making of history Through days of action and nights of mystery! It welcomed the agent who moved in with his wife And gave to the station the source of new life, And watched lively children absorbed in their play Jn the section house yard down the right-of-way. Settlers moving in to break up the soil And making new homes with back-breaking toil; Stockyards and elevators springing up to contain The reward of their labors and hard-earned gain. Looking down every morning at eight-o-thrce The clock saw the Agent tapping the key, The foreman dropping in to check on the time Of the daily passenger three-o-nine; An hour or two later the wayfreight pulled in With shipments for all and sundry therein, And the platform became a hive of activity With eager consignees taking delivery. All rail operations have passed in review On the ribbons of steel that, since they were new, Have served a vast country and helped it to grow Through sunshine and shadow, blizzard and snow! TAKER (IINS) Tabcr town council approved "in principle" i increased sewer service rates I ix I'ooi mended earlier by town j superintendent Bent Madscn: Council directed that a cov- ering by-law be presented Jan. 11. The rate increase for some 1.170 domestic users is from j to per month, for J84 commercial users from 40 pel- cent to 50 per cent of the cost of water consumed, and for Ihrce industrials from to per million gallons of water purchased, the increase graduated over two years. The additional revenue is ex- pected to recompense for the costs involved in construction cf the lagoon-irrigation system made necessary under pollu- tion control requirements, with Ihoso responsible carrying the major portion of costs. The bylaw will include provi- sion fcr a sewer maintenance i tax of 10 cents per foot front- Tick-lock, tick-tock, tiek-tock, tick-lock An era has passed, closed is the station With the introduction of automation; The old station clock, with a tear in ils eye, Comes down from the wall, it doesn't know why! Redundant, no never, it's now an antique, Refurbished and polished and dusted each week, In a home where there's life and laughter and love With the old station clock smiling down from above! Tick-lock, lick-lock, tick-lock, tick-lock........ and Ola Slevenson Mobile homes house 8 per eeiil of the East Kooteuay population NATAL (HNS) About eight per cent of the East Kootenay population lives in mobile homes, says a report presented the East Kootenay Union Board of Health. Inspector B. MacDonald told the board (here are 68 mobile home parks in the area with spaces. These house about people. Because some of the parks were in existence prior to 1908 when mobile home park regu- lations came info effect, not all arc considered up to stand- ard. Mr. MacDonald said that 50 per cent of all mobile home parks have service buildings, 40 per cent have approved water supply systems, 70 per cent have correct spacings and layouts, 60 per cent have satis- factory garbage disposal, 75 per cent have satisfactory sew- age disposal, 42 per cent have paved roads and recreational service and 20 per cent have landscaping. The board of health is asking Ihe minister of health to set n time limit in which the parks not now up to standard must conform to regulations.

RDEK directors had pre- ferred a request for an area of nearly 20.000 acres to be ear- markcd as a park lo the lech- nical planning committee, who said (ho area was loo large for single land utilization. An argument against the finding was presented to the Regional District of East Koolenay board recently by Jerry McKee of Kimberley, who is spearheading the cam- paign to have the area known as the Top of the World, (he Lussi.er rivershed and Fish Lake set aside as a wilderness area. Contending that RDEK di- rectors were more likely to sec social priorities than mem- bers of the Top of the World, he' asked that Ihe board make a positive recommendation lo save the area for use as wild- erness park, and not leave the decision to government at the provincial level. children vaccinated for inwislcs NATAL HINSi .Mure than East Kcolwiay children the of one and H years have reravcd vaccina- tion against Hubclla or Ger- man measles, .says a report to Ihc East Kuotenay Union Board of Ilcallh by 'Miss D. public hi'allh nurse.
