Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Disaster meet was disaster WARNER (Staff) A re- cent Disaster Services conference at Edmonton resulted in only one worthwhile announcement, Coun. Victor Pittman of Warner told his fellow coun- cillors Tuesday. He attended but intimated it was a useless exercise. "The purpose of that conference was only to make one worthwhile announcement the new government policy to start in 1976 of making a grant of 10 cents per capita for each municipality for the education of their local delegates, to send them to conferences. I thought this one announce- ment could have been given t.o the municipalities in a cir- said Coun. Pittman. "It was a conference, not a convention. I believe I could have learned everything they told us from a circular. If the department had of sent out a circular, I would be just as well informed as I am now." He said toward the end of the session, a delegate got up and demanded that time be taken for resolutions. By that time it was too late, said Coun. Pittman. p; >-5', Saturday, Ftbruiry 15, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD IS Stavely's future still in limbo Taber approves day care centre TABER (HNS) Town council this week approved a day care centre for preschool childrlen that could require as much as from town coffers this year or half a mill in taxation.

New Brooks hatchery to boost pheasant crop Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON Construc- tion will begin this year on the new Brooks pheasant hatchery that is to eventually provide birds a year for the Alberta countryside, says Lands and Forests Minister Allan Warrack. The facility an- nounced in this year's budget will replace the present hatchery which has a capacity of birds per year. By 1976, the hatchery should produce birds, up to 000 by 1977, and each year thereafter. A similar unit is to be phased in to bring production to the mark. The hatchery is being built east of Brooks between the horticultural station and the trans-Canada Highway to provide easy access for visitors. The hatchery is intended to with other fish and wildlife programs in southern Alberta aimed at improving wildlife habitats. By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor CLARESHOLM (Staff) A four-man delegation received no assurance this week from the Willow Creek Municipal District council that the MD will apportion the northern .One-third of.the MD to the new Nanton and district senior citizens foundation. The Willow Creek Founda- tion is affected and council is somewhat hesitant as to ex- actly where the boundary should be placed. Stavely may or may not be included in the new Nanton foundation. The Willow Creek Founda- tion operates lodges at Fort Macleod and Claresholm. Member towns have always held the view a third home is not needed in the region as the two homes seldom operate to capacity. Ralph Nixon and Rev. Dwight Powell of the Nanton town council and district residents Gerald Loree and Albert Fox appeared before the MD council to invite the MD's northern .one-third to join the town and be part of the senior citizens foun- dation." Some MD councillors would prefer to Have the proposed Nanton home operate under the Willow Creek Foundation and institute three boards of management for the three homes. But Nanton officials don't want it that way. At present there is a 2'A mill-levy on the whole MD to raise about for the two homes. If this week's council meeting is any indication, three separate, or at least two, foundations may be formed, each requisitioning the MD for operating funds. The Town of Stavely will alsq, be invited to join the new Nanton foundation, said Coun: Nixon. The invitation will go to the Feb. 19 town council meeting. The MD council decided to await the Town of Stavely Crowsnest Pass Bureau VERNON DECOUX, nip., H2-214) tttfffftUfffffftfffffffffffffttttfftffffffffffftfi TO ALL.

Nixon said Nanton paid into Creek Foundation from 1965 to 1972 but then "decided to go it alone." A third home at Nanton will affect the demand for ser- vices and financing of the two homes now said Coun. John Zoeteman. He said Willow Creek Foun- dation representatives from member towns had voted against a third home. In light of this, why should the MD lose one-third of its area to the new Nanton lodge, he asked. Also discussed Wednesday was an April MD mo- tion which resolved to divide the MD into three areas by assessment for purposes of dividing the Willow Creek Foundation for senior citizens lodges into the three areas of Fort Macleod, Claresholm and Nanton. The boundaries were to be defined upon receipt of public opinion from the Town of Stavely. All contributing authorities were to pay re- quisitions at the required rate Willow Creek Foun- dation. The division was to be made upon completion of the proposed senior citizens home at Nanton. This was in response to a re- quest from Nanton officials that one-third the MD be apportioned to the Nanton lodge. But in effect it creates three foundations and the question is where Stavely will fit into the picture. An official announcement that a lodge has been approv- ed for Nanton is expected soon, said Mr. Loree, chairman of the citizens group, that surveyed the northern area of the MD.
