H. NELSON Q.C. at Office Hours: Saturday a.m. to p.m. The East Kootenay region of British Columbia will have a community college if the school boards in the area give their support to it, a govern- ment official told the first meeting of the new advisory committee this month. Last month, the school boards and officials in the region expressed concern that the establishment of an ad- visory committee was another bureaucratic step to delay approval of a community college for the region. The B.C. department of education co ordinator of community college development, Len O'Neil, contradicted a statement by a department official in January who said the advisory committee would identify the type, size and location of the proposed college. Mr. O'Neil told the advisory committee, established in late January, that it was not a decision making body. It's job is to compile ac- curate information and pre- sent it to the school boards in the East Kootenay, who will then make a decision on whether to establish a com- munity college. CARDSTON 000 grant for the Cardston Municipal Hospital's am- bulance fund was approved Monday by the Cardston Municipal District council, making good a promise it made hospital board chairman Theron Smith last September. It .will mean a levy of about 80 cents per capita throughout the entire MD, secretary treasurer R. W. Legge told council. Coun. Bob Molcak's motion that the entire MD assume the cost of the grant was approv- ed with councillors Ken Beswick of Spring Coulee and Mike Schneyder of Magrath opposed. Coun. Beswick said he favored a levy throughout the Cardston Municipal Hospital District. And Coun. Schneyder said "I am not against it, I am just not for it." Reeve Shelton Ririe said Magrath residents he spoke to felt the Garden City did not need the Cardston ambulance service since they were serv- ed from Lethbridge. B and R Service proprietor Stan Johnson and his son operate the ambulance for a annual retainer fee. They are available on a 24- hour basis to operate the ser- vice. Users in town and country pay a basic fee plus mileage over the first 15 miles. The Blood Indian Band will be charged J3.600 or one-half of the retainer fee, said the board chairman. "We pay the ambulance a month whether they Cardston area barns destroyed CARDSTON (HNS) Two barns were destroyed on separate farms near here in apparently unrelated in- cidents Monday. A blaze consumed 60 to 70 tons of hay, three calves and three lambs on the Ron Blackmore farm when the barn burned Monday after- noon. Cardston Municipal District firefighters were unable to save the structure, but prevented the fire from spreading to nearby buildings. The farm is located miles southwest of town. Another fire destroyed the barn on the Gordon Malmberg farm 15 miles east of Cardston at 11 p.m. Monday. Also lost were seven or eight tons of hay, tack, and a dog which perished in the blaze. Cardston MD firemen saved nearby haystacks and buildings. turn a wheel or said Mr. Smith. "Last month we paid the ambulance people in ex- cess of they made two or three trips to Calgary which is charged to-the patient. We collect it. But in some cases we are not able to collect it." He said the ambulance will go anywhere it is called but will charge mileage. "It is the cheapest ambulance service in the south that we know of." "I really don't think it would be much help in our said Coun. Bob Arnold of Del Bonita. ''Bob, if it helps one person, it is worth said secretary treasurer R. W. Legge. Mr. Smith said a "beep" system will be installed at the hospital this month so the medical staff, ambulance people, x-ray technicians and lab people won't have to "sit by their telephones waiting for calls." The "beep" system costs a month. Hospital staffers are equipped to receive that "beep" when they are needed. They telephone for instructions when the "beep" sounds, said Mr. Smith.
