Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRID6E HERALD Saturday, February 8, 1975 Cltv Scene Findlay to bring salt policy before city council I As expected, City Manager Allister traffic circle; the brewery hill from the Mr. Findlay says he's submitting his defeated by 5-4 votes at the last me Bus drivers urge route change City bus drivers want a north side route switched back to where it was before city council ordered it moved one block following a resident's complaint. The transit union asks council in a letter to go before Mon- day's meeting to move routes 5 and 5A back to 20th Street N. from 19th Street N. at 5th Avenue. The 19th Street intersection is hazardous because buses .must make a difficult manoeuver, blocking both east and west traffic on 5th Avenue to negotiate the jog that 19th Street takes, at the intersection, the transit union says. Council ordered the switch to 19th Street after a resident of 20th Street complained the buses disturbed her husband, who was seriously ill. Out-of-towners seek beds Among thousands of spectators to descend on Lethbridge for the upcoming Canada Winter Games will be hundreds of out of town students on school excursions. Games management boss Bob Bartlett says several Calgary schools have already requested sleeping accommoda- tion in city school gymnasiums during the 13-day sport event. "They'll be allowed to stay in gyms in city schools not being used as practice areas. "We're having a little trouble with this, because we don't have a final practice schedule says Mr. Bartlett. Lalonde to speak Wednesday Federal Health Minister Marc Lalonde will be the featured speaker at a special meeting of the Southern Alberta Council of Public Affairs Wednesday. The regular meeting day was changed to Wednesday to ac- commodate the minister, who is also responsible for the status of women in Canada. The minister will be speaking to the noon meeting on "Social Security in Canada: Where are We He will discuss the obligations of society to the needy and moral commitments of people to each other.

It was the last change to the hours bylaw, which council debated off and on for nearly two years in 1971 and 1972.

These are: Mayor Magrath Drive un- derpasses and approaches; 13th Street underpass and approaches; 9th Street bridge and approaches; 5th Ave. N. from the river crossing up to and including the Council to allot surplus City council will excuse the public and press from its meeting to discuss three agenda items privately Mon- day. On tap for the committee of the whole session are alloca- tion of million in the city's operating surplus fund; acquisition of property for a municipal parking lot, probably downtown, and con- sideration of campground developer Doug Nielsen's "financial position." The surplus fund includes a surplus on 1974 city operations, some of which will likely be used to help hold tax- es down as was done with past surpluses. Another use of the surplus will likely be to meet a 000 payment on industrial land purchased by the city last year. And council also has before it a suggestion that of the surplus be used to rebuild streets around the Lethbridge Centre development. The parking lot discussion arises from a still-secret, report to council on off-street parking, which the discussion of Mr. Nielsen's finances con- cerns his ability to handle his river valley campground development. At its last meeting, council authorized a lease agreement with Mr. Nielsen for a tourist campground on the Highway 3 West river valley site. traffic circle; the brewery hill from the riverbottom; and the 6th Avenue S. crossing and all approaches. But the city manager's request also contains a rider that could be interpreted to allow wider use of salt on the roads. It's a request to allow salt on "other roadways the city manager considers to be vital to the safety of the movement of pedestrian and vehicular traffic." RICK EHVIN photo Winter plume A condensation plume rises into the chill winter air above the power plant, an oasis of light in the darkness of the riverbottom.

Allied Arts Council plans visual arts fair in autumn The past year was probably the Allied Arts Council's busiest year for sponsorship of events, the council's annual general meeting was told Friday. More live entertainment was brought to the community than ever before, including a cross-section to suit all tastes, reported Doris Balcovske, the Council's president. Liaison was established for the first time with the Alberta department of culture, youth and and a visual arts fair is being planned for the fall. The council also has excellent relations with the city community services department and the Lethbridge Public Library, she said. After a May, meeting with Culture Minister Horst Schmid, the council's provin- cial grant was increased to from the of previous years, said Mrs. Balcovske. The City of Lethbridge also granted increased funding, allowing plus for capital works, in return for the council's revenue from rentals and summer classes. This allowed larger salaries and more working hours for office staff, and the use of casual staff when necessary, she said. Clare Malmberg, chairman of the Bowman Centre management committee, said the city's assistance resulted in a three-year program of maintenance .and upgrading, to continue in 1976. The first project for 1975 will be improving' the front entrance, said Mr. Malmberg.

FREE CUSTOMER PARKING Joan Waterfield, the coun- cil's performing arts co- ordinator, reported an "out- standing" year. Among the successes were the one-act play festival, which has grown to three days this year from one in 1973, the annual pantomime, the summer musical, Damn Yankees, .and the professional performances brought to Lethbridge by the council. The Theatre-Gallery at the Lethbridge Public Library was found to be ideal for both music recitals and dramatics. Carol Watkinson, visual arts co-ordinator, reported the renovated and re-opened gallery allowed the display of the Buchanan Collection, un- displayed for several years, as well as displays by local ar- tists, instructors and students. The provincial grant allow- ed more equipment for in- struction, and new courses were added in silversmithing, lapidary and photography. Officers elected at the meeting were: president, Bob Baunton; first vice-president, Jerry Weintraub; second vice- president, Michael Wright; recording secretary, Karen Kay, and treasurer, Len Watkinson. Elected directors at large were: Anne Reid, Patrick Cowan and Terry Morris. They join continuing directors Herbert Hicks, Brian Huston, William Nelson and Clare Malmberg. Mr. Findlay says he's submitting his request because there is no council policy on the use of salt on city streets, and he believes it imperative a policy be established. Unless council members have changed their attitude in the past two weeks, the resolution could very well pass. Two council resolutions on salt were defeated by 5-4 votes at the last meeting. But both Aid. Bill Kergan and Aid. Bob Tarleck, who voted against each others' resolutions killing council's last attempt to arrive at a salt formula, indicated they favored a limited use of salt. If both vote for the city manager's resolution and the positions of other council members don't change, the resolution will squeak through 5-4. Rail yard relocation on aldermen's list Railway relocation, drag strips and a path around Henderson Lake are among subjects to be discussed at Monday's city council meeting. Council could begin Monday the long process of arranging removal of the CP Rail marshalling yards from the middle of the city. A submission from City Manager Allister Findlay asks council to hire Damas and Smith Ltd., consulting engineers and planners, to conduct the first stage of a study of a rail relocation program under the recent federal Railway Crossing Act. The firm, which has offices in Toronto, London, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Calgary and Ed- monton, says in a letter to Mr. Findlay any relocation program under the act re- quires a tri-level government agreement. It appears a federal- provincial agreement on the arrangements for Alberta is imminent, the firm the city will have to initiate action aimed at rail relocation. The first stage is to prepare a case outlining the proposed changes and the benefits to be derived from rail relocation. Damas and Smith are proposing to do this for the city at a fee of and to submit the study to the senior- governments on behalf of the city. The rail relocation program involves several more bureaucratic stages requiring agreements among the three levels of government on the proposal and sharing of costs. Transportation on a much smaller scale will be dealt with Monday as well in the form of a resolution from Aid. Bob Tarleck asking for a report on extension of the Henderson Lake pedestrian path right around the lake. Aid. Tarleck wants a report on the feasibility of the path and what would be required to ensure pedestrians don't get hit by errant golf balls. And Aid. Bill Cousins wants the city to look into constructing a drag-strip. Beekeeper blames herbicide BROOKS (HNS) The her- bicide Dimethoate, used by farmers to kill wild oat's, caused in honey losses last year to seven Brooks area beekeepers, the Alberta Environment Conser- vation Authority hearing on pesticides and herbicides was told here.

Cousins cites concern about "certain segments of our pop- ulation who have vehicles constructed to attain high velocities during a short inter- val of time." Suggesting operators of such vehicles at times become frustrated by city speed limits, sometimes do speed down main thoroughfares and occasionally cause serious ac- cidents, Aid. Cousins wants to know if it is feasible to construct a drag-strip in the area for them. Council will also face one other transportation matter. Representatives of Disabled on the Move will appear before council to speak on bus transportation for the disabl- ed and elderly, especially for the Winter Games. Council recently voted down a resolution from Aid. Tony Tobin calling for provision of a handi-bus to take such peo- ple to Winter Games events in the city. Aldermen who voted against it said they didn't think the service could be organized in time. Council's meeting starts at p.m. Cow Camp granted extension Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON Federal Immigration Minister Robert Andras has granted Cow Camp operator Jeff Smith ah extension on a possible depor- tation to April 1, Bow Valley MLA Fred Mandeville said Friday night. Mr. Smith faces deportation if he doesn't win approval from Alberta for a frontier- style school he runs for troubl- ed teenagers. The province has refused any approval so far. Mr. Mandeville has been pleading Mr. Smith's and the school's case with the provin- cial cabinet. Vaselenak peppers city with letters Ever since city council re- jected his suggestions for naming West Lethbridge streets after area pioneers, former alderman Steve Vaselenak has kept a close watch on aldermen's deliberations. naming business prompted Mr. Vaselenak, 66, a separate school trustee and an alderman from 1957 to 1967, to declare his candidacy for mayor in the next election in 1977. Monday's agenda contains seven submissions from Mr. Vaselenak on everything from a pioneers hall of fame to traf- fic lights. Mr. Vaselenak's manner has even turned Aid. Tony Tobin, who campaigned for a more "responsive" council, against some of his tactics. Aid. Tobin supported efforts to have pioneer names used on the west side but at council's last meeting he criticized Mr. Vaselenak for being un- constructive. The rest of council agreed unanimously, but that doesn't seem to have daunted Mr. Vaselenak. FOX DENTURE CLINIC ESI. 1922 PHONE 327-6565 E. S. P. FOX, C.D.M.
