Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 3, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, February 3, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 BILL GROENEN photo Conclave A band of mule deer pick their way across a stuble field near Del Bonita. Most big game animals have had an easy winter so far, as heavy snows have faile'd to hinder their foraging. After an easy winter, the number of does which bear twins in the spring is much greater. New K ananas kis junction proposed on Highway 3 BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) Possibility of the Kananaskis Highway having a new southern entrance to Highway 3 was disclosed at a. highway impact study meeting held with Blairmore council and local citizens this week. The matter came up when a local citizen asked Al Werner of the provincial planning branch of the highways and transport if the Kananaskis highway was to be paved. It was indicated that the highway would eventually be paved and that it could have its entrance, changed to Lundbreck via the Gap or possibly the entrance could be built at Frank or Bellevue via Lille. The present entrance to the Kananaskis highway is at Coleman and the first 12 miles of the highway is used heavily by coal trucks hauling coal from Vicary mine to the cleaning plant at Coleman. This lessens its desirability as a recreation road or regular car traffic route. Changing the entrance to the Kananaskis would not mean that it would be closed since it Rodeo future bleak at Taber Ratepayers' meeting cancelled TABER (HNS) Despite good attendance at last year's annual ratepayers' meeting, the Taber Municipal District council has cancelled this year's meeting. Under provisions of the Municipal Government Act, the MD council this week decided to follow the lead of the Cardston Municipal District and the Warner Coun- ty and not hold the meeting. However, if a petition sign- ed by five per cent of the MD population of about re- quests a meeting, the reeve is under obligation to call it. More than 300 signatures would be required on such a petition. The council approved an an- nual grant of to Taber Parkside Manor operating costs, duplicating last year's contribution. A similar grant is available to the senior citizens home at Vauxhall. Completion of the 1974 assessment was extended from Dec. 31 to Jan. 15, and completion of the assessment roll, mailing assessment slips, and posting notices of preparation of the assessment roll was extended from Jan. 15 to Feb. 28. The council was in receipt of advice from the bridge branch, department of highways and transport, that deck repairs for the McLean Bridge over the Oldman River north of Taber have been approved. The work will be done by Bow Island crews and in- volves the replacement of broken and missing planking. TABER (HNS) The future of the annual Taber rodeo looks bleak, members of the Taber Rodeo Associa- tion decided last week. Now in its 35th year, the rodeo isn't winning the sup- port it deserves, say rodeo committee members. The committee has lost five members and a nominating committee is having trouble finding replacements to bring the 15 man board up to full strength. A number of supporting organizations that sponsor concessions have asked for a bigger share of the proceeds. Rodeo contestants contin- ually ask for larger purses. The Taber Businessmen's Association has retired as sponsor of the parade. It is now handled by the Taber Ex- hibition Association. A further lack of interest was shown with the cancella- tion last year of the rodeo queen contest. The rodeo association has honored its commitment to the town by paying toward the purchase of portable bleachers. But the future of the grounds, comprising 44 acres, is also in doubt. The area is being considered by town council as an area for residen- tial expansion. Legion elects NATAL (HNS) Robert Doratty has been elected president of the Michel Natal branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. Other officers: Herb Travis, first vice president; John Ward, second vice president; Mickey Man- nion, secretary; Norm Hughes, treasurer; James Grocutt, sergeant at arms; and Robert Martin, service of- ficer. would be maintained as a forestry road. The department of highways maintains the first eleven miles of the Kananaskis and the remaining 128 miles from Coleman to Seebe are maintained by the Alberta forest, service. A feasibility study and preliminary study for construction of new southern entrances to the Kananaskis highway was completed by the department of highways several years ago. Reports indicate that if a dam project on the Old Man river watershed materializes in the next few years the entrance to the Kananaskis yia the Gap and Lundbreck area would be scrapped. Game group trophy day Feb. 15 COALDALE (Staff) The Coaldale Fish and Game Association will hold its an- nual trophy day and Valentine dance from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Feb. 15 at the Ventura Inn here. President Joe Curtis says game entries will be scored at the Ventura Inn to 12 noon Feb. 15. The trophies will be displayed from 1 to 4 p.m. Entries may be left at Southern Signs or the Len Steinbrenner residence prior to Feb. 15. Mr. Curtis says anyone with a big game trophy many enter it in the challenge trophy event, regardless of whether the head was found or. obtain- ed through hunting. "It will be scored as long as the horns are says Mr. Curtis. Mr. Steinbrenner has donated a trophy for this event. Cable TV planned at Brooks BROOKS (Special) Brooks Cablevision Ltd. has been formed to provide cable television service here if there is sufficient support to justify an application to the Canadian Radio Television Commission. The local firm plans to provide three American channels, including the U.S. public broadcasting system as well as CHAT-TV, Medicine Hat; CFCN-TV, Calgary; and CJOC TV, Lethbridge. The American channels will be brought in by microwave. This will result in a better pic- ture than is available to cablcvision from picking up regular signals, say company officials. South In short Development cited for secrecy TABER (Special) Mayor Arthur H..Avery took time out from the regular agenda of the town council meeting this week to explain the reason for holding closed meetings. The mayor said the closed meetings are held to hear the in- dustrial co ordinator's report. The mayor said that action taken at the closed meetings would have to be brought before a public meeting for final approval. Mayor Avery said that items of business, other than Mr. Gibb's report, may also be discussed at the closed sessions. He said that such items might be matters resulting from Mr. Gibb's report.
