Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Tuesday, February 20, 1973 A review Journey to Vienna By PAT ORCHARD The Vienna Nights performed to a near-capacity audience at the Yates Memorial Centre Monday evening. This ensemble featured soprano Marian Studholme, tenor Louis Browne, baritone Brian Kemp and pianist Jennifer Partridge. These singers have established an enviable reputation over a wide range of music, from Die Fledermaus and the Merry Widow to Mozart and Beethoven. The first half of the program included songs by Lehar, Zeller and Strauss, and was well devised to avoid monotony, as the soloists selected a cross-section of everybody's favorite Viennese music. Brian Kemp had a beautifully free, rich voice, and although he did no violence to the music, had an irritating habit of bellowing, and rather succumbed to a degree of conscious striving after effect in the belief that it added to expressiveness. Louis Browne had a reedy voice which was further mar- red by a consistent tightness on the high notes and an intonation problem resulting from dramatic intensity. He swept through several of his arias with undue Haste. Miss Studholme must have had an off night. She rarely seemed able to convey a smile in her voice, and the notes were so constricted that the result was a noticeable, if distant, resemblance to a yodel. However, when she threw aside her inhibitions and opened her throat, as in the Schubert number, one enjoyed the bright pure tone of her voice. It is all very well to criticize, but let us have praise where it is due. As an ensemble, the singers were flexible and ..articulate, investing their songs with a �wealth of affection. The highlights of the evening were the March Duet and Trio by Zeller. The facile charm of these performances could rarely have been put over more persuasively, as the group showed immediate response to the changing mr 'thin a single aria or g. , of songs. The audience capitulated to the enchanting nonsense of this 19th - century music as the ensemble projected the right mood and stressed the beautiful lyricism of romance. They positively effervesced in the livelier numbers, and sang the more sentimental ones with grace and charm. As an ensemble, they gave a very experienced and sensitive exposition of light opera. Miss Partridge inter-spex-sed the program with two pleasant solos, Beethoven's Four Elise and Schubert's Impromptu in A major. She was a competent pianist, who could accompany without distracting attention from the singers. However empty some of the music, it was impossible not to enjoy this absorbing journey into the Viennese recitalists' world of over a century ago, performed by artists of last night's calibre.

When the two are combined, they create a paper hurricane, a mess in Hardie-ville yards and headaches for city hall officials. "Sometimes the paper will blow 300 feet into the air," says Marshall Aneca, owner of the company which operates the landfill for the city. It's the unbundled, loose paper dumped frequently at the landfill site which causes the major problems, Mr. Aneca said. "There are about 20 commercial haulers who bring garbage without bundling the paper," he said. The city's bylaw written to control garbage disposal includes a clause which requires paper to be bundled. Close site But the city has difficulty enforcing the bylaw and the problem continues. One way of trying to cut down the chances of paper being picked up by the wind is to close the landfill when the wind reaches 30 miles per hour in velocity. That is practical only if the wind blows for one day. If it continues for longer, "there's no way the landfill site can be closed every day," Mr. Aneca said. Even closing down the site is no assurance the problem will be averted. One day last month, when it was closed, someone dumped a load of garbage in the garage used to store equipment. < Some people are insulted if they aren't allowed in, Mr. Aneca said, and will go to amy length to get rid of their garbage. The only successful way found so far to keep them out, particularly after hours, is to park two caterpillar tractors across the road. The hours set for the landfill to be open are between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday landfill area, Mr. Aneca said. Paper also occasionally is through Saturday. Private haulers have been told by the city not to dump more than one-half cubic yard of garbage after 5 p.m. and on Sundays but don't heed the instructions, Mr. Aneca said. To keep on top of the amount of garbage disposed, Aneca Construction workers will be seen at the site seven days a week more than eight hours each day. When the wind blows, more help is needed. Lately the company has depended on church groups and scout troops, paying $2 an hour for each person who picked up loose paper, by hand, from around the site. The local Canada Manpower Centre was tried for some time, Mr. Aneca said, until the company gave up on that source because none of the men sent out to pick paper ever showed up. If the paper isn't picked up, residents in Hardieville can attest to what happens to it. The evidence can be found in abundance in their yards. Complaints "Those people have a legi-t i m a t e complaint," Mr. Aneca said, but the problem is likely to continue until the city begins enforcing its bylaw and Lethbridge residents begin co-operating by bundling their paper, he added. Snow fences have been put up at the bottom of the landfill site and a fence resembling a baseball backstop on top of the landfill hill, but they are ineffective in the fight against blowing paper. The fences stop the first few flying sheets but when those are pasted against the fences, an updraft is created and the winds shoots the papers skyward, over the fences and down outside the RICK ERVIN photos Landfill site ... wind picks up paper and carries it over screen guard afire hazard. One day in January, a fire which was believed caused by hot ashes from a backyard incinerator was staited at the site, Mr. Aneca said. Intentional fires to burn garbage at the landfill are not allowed by provincial environmental standards. For the city's part, means of enforcing the bylaw and improving the landfill process are being studied, city engineer Randy Holfeld said. Garbage is buried in layers five to six feet deep with dirt from the sides of a coulee. In about four years, Mr. Aneca said, there won't be enough dirt left at the location to carry on landfill operations and a new site will have to be found. Aneca Construction is in the midst, of a two-year contract with the city, at $3,990 a month, for the landfill operation. To improve on the operation would cost the city more money, Mr. Aneca said. Except for the days when the paper blows, however, the city appears to be reasonably satisfied with the job done by Aneca'. A clause in the contract allows the city to give the company three days notice to clean up the site, particularly when the paper is blowing, or city crews will do it and charge the company-. So far, the company has responded to the notice and city crews have not been necessary at the site. Bail reduced Bail for one of three men charged with armed robbery Feb. 5 has been reduced to $250 from $1,000 cash. In addition, Michael Patrick Henry O'Neal, 21, of Lethbridge, will be required to report weekly to the RCMP. O'Neal and Samuel Wayne Teague, 22, of Vancouver were remanded to Friday when a trial date will be set. Charles Dennis Avery, 27, of Taber, also charged with the offence, will appear at that time. The three are charged that. on the night of Feb. 5, they stole $2,300 from Lory Edward Kennedy, of Hardieville, at gun point, several miles south of Kenyon Field. * *  Gordon John Ramehuk, 29, of Calgary, has been remanded to Feb. 26 on a charge of theft over $200. It is alleged that Ramehuk stole a sum of money from the Thriftway Pharmacy in the city. Bail was set at $1,000, or $2,-000 property.
