Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, December 31, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 3 Educational awareness Taber names Gibb Elk Valley now zoned is positive in 'Pass By VERN DECOUX Crowsnest Pass Bureau BLAIRMORE -Paul Zubick, superintendent of the Crowsnest School Division No. 63, in a report to the board of trustees, indicates the "educational awareness" in the division is "most positive in nature and encouraging in manifestation." His report showed that schools in the division are well staffed with a total of 90 teachers and administrators to handle the school population of about 1,650 students. This, he said, provides a very good teacher-pupil ratio especially on the senior high school level. He commended the board for being "progressively - minded and economy-conscious." Introduction of a music program into the schools is one of the new endeavors being planned for the immediate educational future. An instructor, whose duties are to begin on Jan. 3, has been appointed. His permanent base of operations will be the Crowsnest Consolidated High School but he will be co-ordinating music endeavors in all schools. It is hoped he will establish an excellent rapport with all e x i s t ing musically - oriented groups in the 'Pass - including the Crowsnest Pass Band and the Crowsnest Pass Symphony orchestra. Introduction o' a counselling service for all schools is being contemplated. The special counsellor would serve all schools but in early months here would be with the elementary school and junior high school youngsters, Grades 4 to 8. There is counselling service in the Crowsnest Consolidated High School and the form?! counselling services in the oth er schools are next to nil. Possibility of moving into the levels system is also being contemplated. Much study will have to be done in this area as the main pre-occupation will have to be with the best possible approach to the individual c h i 1 d's ability to achieve. Creative children's park possible initiatives project per cent of any material costs. Projects must be of a community-improving nature. Possibility of applying for approval of a creative children's park in the recreation centre area is considered. The report also indicated the board has already gone on record of having lowered the school entrance age from six years to 5Vz years. This will be governed by the child's maturity and readiness. Every youngster below six years of age Sept. 1 will be given a series of tests. There is a good possibility that the traditional school year will undergo some changes. This will depend on a large degree on the recommendations to be handed down by the department of education. CRANBROOK (Special)- Cranbrook school board has asked its district superintendent of schools, P. B. Pullinger, to investigate and propose possible local initiatives projects. This follows extension of this federal winter employment program to schools and hospitals.

All approved projects will receive up to $100 a week for every new job created, plus 17 Provision of permanent quarters in the same location for the Juniper Day School for handicapped children is a strong possibility.

Gibb as full-time industrial coordinator for the Town of Taber, effective Jan. 1, has been confirmed by town council. Mr. Gibb has served in that office on a part-time basis since last June. He came to Taber in February, 1918, during the construction of the sugar factory here, and has been employed in engineering work during the past 24 years. He is retiring from Canadian Sugar Factories after completing his 45th operating season with the company. Earlier he worked in control laboratory and engineering work at Raymond and Picture Butte.

ROSS GIBB CRANBROOK (Special) -The Elk Valley zoning bylaw toward a measure of control over development of the valley from S'parwood north limit north to the headwaters of the Elk Valley has finally been gazetted. Regional District of East Kootenay staff professional planner Alfred Miller prepared it in early 1970 and it was leg- islated by the board to order-in-council stage June, 1970. An immediate uproar from the 90 landowners in the valley led to the province suspending enactment for some revision. The December board meeting unanimously enacted the acceptable revised bylaw including the elected board member from the Elk River electoral area, Lloyd Phillips. He was Horse and cutter spurs memories Mr. Gibb is also local justice of the peace, a member of the South-west Alberta Economic Advisory Council and a director of the Credit Unioii Federation of Alberta Ltd. 47-year stint ends for miner John Gaskell By ALICE WADE Herald News Service SHAUGHNESSY - We had a little bit of "days gone by" during the Christmas season when we looked out the window and saw a horse and cutter proceeding down the street. It was driven by Larry Hudson. He designed and built the cutter himself. He was giving friends and relatives a ride. It, reminded me- of the time when I was a kid when this was the only way of travel. Many times during the winter we would go miles to a dance, church and to town to pick up supplies. You would be bundled up in warm clothes and cover up with heavy robes and blankets and have foot-warmers or heated rocks to keep your feet warm and when you came home the house was cold and you would start a fire and huddle around the stove until you warmed up. How different it is today, with jets, cars, ski-doos and modern methods of heating. What do you think folks, didn't we have just as much fun when we were young? elected by the electoral area the end of 1970 when the uproar was at its peak. Revised terms reduce from 80 acres to 20 acres the mini-num lot size for non-urban development, and from 20 to five acres minimum for a rural residence. Meanwhile, Elkford village, up Fording river, has been incorporated and is.under its own zoning legislation. ' Enactment was crucial since other electoral area bylaws, including Wasa Lake area previously enacted, will be patterned on this, and participatory democracy is expected to be intense in the electoral area south of Wardner-Elko in the vast Libby Dam pondage area, which will begin filling in 1972. This may create problems of land speculation and ribbon commercial development. Recreation and residential subdivision may move in faster than the water. With the Elk Valley Bylaw precedent established the board will be on firm ground in zoning this to forestall undesirable development. 7 ii lean histor being compiled NATAL (HNS) - If you count the years from 1924 to 197), you come up with 47 and this represents the time Johnny Gaskell has spent in the coal industry at Michel. Recently he called it quits and walked out. of the Michel powerhouse with a smile. A few months ago a story was carried by The Herald of how he and his younger broth' er Pete had worked a total of 93 years in the industry without suffering a compensable accident. Mr. Gaskell lives at Fernie with his wife Margaret after residing in Michel until 1969. Their son George is employed by Kaiser Resources Limited at the Michel machine shop.
