Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 LETHBRIDQt HERALD Thursday, February 7, 1974 Dateline Alberta Fired teacher loses bid EDMONTON (CP) An application by an Edmonton schoolteacher to force the public school board to hold an open hearing into whether he should be fired was dismissed in Alberta Supreme Court Wednesday. Mr. Justice J. C. Cavanagh, in handing down judgment, ruled that the board is entitled to hold a closed hearing if it so desires. The application was brought by Rudy Penner, a mathematics teacher at Britannia Junior High School. Mr. Justice Cavanagh ruled that the issue of the closed hearing is one of master and servant and that the board will not be sitting as a tribunal but merely trying to decide whether or not it should dismiss a servant.

Driver failure blamed EDMONTON (CP) Most of the railway crossing accidents that have plagued the Edmonton area for months can be blamed on driver failure, an investigator with the Canadian Transport Commission said today. In many cases, vehicles drove into the sides of trains or skidded into them because the drivers were "just not Sying said J. H. "We also find that many of the people who are involved in the accidents live within one mile of the crossing and have a casual attitude toward it. They probably use it every day in the course of their work or going to and from home." Farmers warned about planners CALGARY (CP) Alberta fanners should collectively or individually begin planning how their lands are to be used in the future before urban- oriented planners do the job for them, the Western Stock Growers' Association (WSGA) was told here. Doug Allen, a Calgary rural land-use and agricultural consultant said if the fanners do not act now. it will be too late. "You bad better start now or in 18 months you will be locked into a new provincial planning act which is being developed by urban-oriented planners who don't have a ciue about agricultural efficiency." He advised groups or individuals to inform the upcoming land-use forum hearings of the necessity of preserving agricultural land for food production rather than have it sold and developed for subdivisions. "You must present them with an alternative that will be palatable to developers and government. The government has an appreciation for land owners who can develop plans for the highest and best use of land for the good of society." DEVELOPTMTEVT RIGHTS Mr. Allen suggested an owner-controlled, land-use riannin association in an area could undertake planning and issue land development rights to all land owners for unproductive parcels suitable for housing. The development rights would be valued at a price that would compensate the owner for not selling the good producing agricultural land for residential development, be said. Fanners or ranchers could thus afford to keep the good land producing in perpetuity. Developers would bid for the development rights on the land. "This will keep the government out of the land business. The private- enterprise farmer is dealing with the private enterprise developer." Farmers and ranchers in an area "must have the greatest say in what land gets subdivided and where." he said. There was nothing wrong with building rural subdivisions as long as they didn't remove good agricultural land in 20 and 40- acre lots as was happening around Calgary and Edmonton today, he said. He suggested "cluster subdivisions" on unproductive land with the lot sizes about BEDSPREAD Lovely "Laura" Practical too! A beautiful bedspread adds the decorator's touch to your bedroom.
