South in short MD to renovate building CLARESHOLM (Special) A joint meeting of the Willow Creek school division and the Willow Creek Municipal District has approved minor renovations to the MD Building here. It will be done to better accommodate school division and MD staff. A committee room will be converted to a machine room. Secretary Treasurer Ruben Hartfelder suggested an ex- tra office could be provided in the basement by renovating the storage area. Coun. John Zoeteman suggested a joint building fund be es- tablished to finance an addition several years from now. Reeve George Whitehead said the MD council does not favor an addition now. It would cost as much to build an addi- tion now as the entire building cost 10 years ago, he said.

Taber drops plans for Games festival TABER (HNS) The Taber Businessmen's Associa- tion Winter Games celebration has been cancelled due to lack of interest and participation of downtown merchants. The promotion was to have included in-store draws, a businessmen's hockey tournament and daily cash draws. A committee of six people would have handled the details. Now, all money collected will be returned to those business people who elected to take part in the promotion. In a 'news release earlier this week, Mrs. Helen Wentz, chairman of the promotion, scheduled for Feb. 15 to 22, stated: "It is with much regret, deep disappointment and a little disillusionment that these plans were shelved." Kootenay game clubs oppose Hydro's diversion proposal CRANBROOK (Special) The Windermere Invermere Fish and Game Club has introduced a resolution for the May convention of the British Columbia Wildlife Federation at Kamloops opposing the threatened diversion of the Kootenay River into the Columbia. B.C. Hydro was discussing the feasibility of such a pro- ject last year but talk has fied down lately. The northern Kootenay game clubs oppose any diver- sion plan because of the Columbia marshes. These are said to be one of the most' productive wildlife areas in B.C. The clubs recommend that a wildlife biologist study the area and investigate the possibility of land acquisition to protect the popular bird areas. Sportsmen say too much hard work has been done to have it all destroyed. They claim a diversion would have a major effect on the whole watershed of both rivers and is a destructive project which should not go ahead. The Invermere club also recommended the bag limit for mule deer, whitetail deer and black bear be one per hunter per season in manage- ment area 11. Present limit is two. But the animal popula- tion is declining and the number of hunters increasing. The club admitted the re- quest might not be valid for the southern half of the management area. Hunters are decreasing there, it appears. The East Kootenay Wildlife Association will urge at the Kamloops convention that a resource co ordinator and ex- panded government staff be provided to the East Kootenay area. These people are needed to investigate all the ramifications of proposed in- dustrial developments, says the association's resolution. East Kootenay clubs show concern about coal developments in the Elk and Flathead valleys. The Kjmberley club's resolution is based on Don Charlton's report on coal ex- ploration and mining. The resolution recommends the B.C. Wildlife Federation review existing laws govern- ing coal mining, .contact government agencies to find out what has been done to date in B.C.'s coal developments, contact the companies involv- ed to exchange viewpoints and information when all data is gathered and encourage the government to take positive steps in developing new regulations governing the coal industry. Mr. Charlton suggested quick action as large developments in the Elk and Flathead valleys are likely to start this summer. He said he hopes a possible mine at Sage Creek could become a model for other coal developments in B.C. if proper guidance is given. Sage Creek Coal Limited has applied to the B.C. depart- ment of mines and petroleum resources for a licence to develop and produce coal on its acre holdings in the Flathead River drainage country just north'of the U.S. border; Sportsmen say the Sage Creek coal development has implications in the United States as well as this country. The four are forming a loose Growers honor Harry Boyse Harry Boyse of Lethbridge Thursday was made an honorary life member of the Alberta Sugar Beet Growers Association after 31 years of service to the farmer organization. Mr. Boyse, who served as labor advisor and secretary manager during his tenure, retired from the association Thursday. coalition to tackle the problem. They have contacted B.C. Wildlife officials to show their concern. The Montana government has also registered a protest. The Cranbrook Rod and Gun Club presented two resolutions authored by Don Sherling. These also deal with resource management. Mr. Sherling says the Bull, Elk and Flathead valleys, an important area for recreation, wildlife, fish and forests, is affected by rapid expansion of coal and seismic exploration and industrialization. His first resolution proposes, "The B.C. Wildlife Federation make representa- tion to the environment and land use committee to insure that complete land use sur- veys and social and resource studies are conducted and concluded prior to the issuance of any permits or licences which would conflict with proper land use and social values and the recommendations be adhered to as development proceeds." The brief accompanying the resolution says many thousands of square miles in the Elk and Flathead regions are scarred because of coal and seismic developments. They have a negative im- pact on renewable resources such as wildlife and forests as well as disrupting existing ac- tivities such as recreation and logging. The brief concludes, "Inten- sive studies of all aspects must be conducted before allowing any further expan- sion in coal and seismic ex- ploration and mining." The second resolution asked that staff be adequate to con- duct the studies. Cranbrook chamber seeks city liaison CRANBROOK (Special) This city's first woman president of the Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce adds a lot of glamor and some new ideas to the post. Urla Meckling, mother of 1974 Sam Steele Days "sweetheart" Heather Hoidaway, says she hopes to have city council representa- tion at the chamber meetings. Aldermen should take part in chamber discussions on a rotating basis, she says. "This would permit better chamber council she says. Mrs. Meckling succeeds Norm McEvoy to the ex- ecutive post and is the second woman in the province to achieve such a position. One of the biggest challenges facing the new chamber will be to establish a merchant's association which will have liaisons with the Sam Steele Committee and the Downtown Parking Com- mission, she said. Mrs. Meckling also hopes the Jaycees president and a Sam Steele Days represen- tative will attend some of the chamber meetings. Jim Nicdl will head both the community affairs and civic affairs committees and will represent the chamber at council meetings. Vice-presidents are Wally Armstrong and E. Z. Mile. Other committee heads are Gordon Dezall, membership; Howe Thompson, community affairs; Bruce McDonald, in- dustrial development; Dale Hanneman, tourism; and Jim Dalton, liaison delegate in the East Kootenay Tourist Association.
