Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 22, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Ftbruiry 22, 1975 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 21 Forty Mile passes policy on use of strap in school FOREMOST (Special) Policies affecting the use of the strap, examination procedures, the sale of soft drinks and the school year were all passed by the County of Forty Mile School Committee at its February meeting. The policy approved on use of the strap acknowledges that corporal punishment on students is discouraged. It is, however, permissible to use the strap under certain conditions. It will be administered only after consultation with the school ad- ministrator, and will be administered either by the teacher or administrator with the other serving as witness. A written record will be kept of any punish- ment administered. A new policy affecting senior high school examination procedures was passed. It is necessitated by the removal of external examinations. The new policy recognizes that there are two examination periods in the school year under the semester system. The final week of the first semester will be used for examination purposes, with the final two days in that week serving as a semester break. The last four student days in June will be used for exams at the end of the year. Students will only be required to at- tend school when they are actually writing exams during these periods. The two-day semester break is primarily to give teachers of senior high subjects time for examination marking and completion of end of semester reports. The sale of soft drinks will be permitted in county schools. The new policy allows soft drinks to be sold during the period at noon, when the majority of classes are in recess; after the end of general classroom instruction for the day, and on such other special occasions as are sanctioned by the school principal. Final approval was given to the dates for the 1975-76 school year which will be a total of 199 school days. School will open on Sept. 2 for teachers and Sept. 3 for students. Hospital laundry seeks business By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald Staff Writer If the Brooks and Taber hospitals participate in central laundry facilities here, costs will be further reduced, Frank Russell, chairman of the Lethbridge General and Auxiliary Hospital and Nursing Home District No, 65 Board, told the Lethbridge County council Thursday. He said the plant here is designed to handle three million pounds of laundry a year but at present is doing just a little more than one million pounds. The Brooks hospital will enter the service, and maybe the Taber hospital too, he said. "They provide a linen ser- vice to these he said. "The laundry service costs nine cents a pound. Laundry costs in some hospitals 'was as high as 35 cents a pound." Reviewing hospitals Bird low bidder on county office Bird Construction Company Ltd. Thursday was tentatively awarded a contract to build the new Lethbridge County administration building. It was the low bidder of eight firms with a bid of But the county council is hopeful the bid can be pared, at least to under the million mark. "We are going to have to do a little cutting said County Manager Bob Grant, recalling a bylaw for an expenditure of "We are a couple of thousand dollars short." But Coun. Otto Wobick of Barons recalled that council has a reserve fund for the building. Hence architect George Robins of Robins, Watson and Associates, was asked to confer with the low bidder to find cost reductions. The bid was accepted sub- ject to the approval of the Local Authorities Board on the borrowing. The building will be erected on the site of the old Lethbridge city hall annex, now cleared, at 9th Street and 4th Avenue S. Bird Construc- tion pledged a finished building in 334 days. "I assure you we can get below the million dollar said Mr. Robins. "We would prepare a list of possi- ble savings, each one for the consideration of council. Council will decide whether the savings are justified or not." He noted the bids are valid for 20 days. Coun. Steve Slemko of Coaldale said wages have gone up 15 per cent since coun- cil passed its initial bylaw for the building. Reeve Dick Papworth said the low bid was still over the estimated cost, a hike of 15 per cent. FRILLS STRIPPED The architect said frills have already been stripped out. "Basically we are down to a bare bones building." But if a saving of five per cent could be made it would amounfto Other tenders were: Gillett Construction Ltd., 330 days; Cana Construction Ltd., 245 days; Boychuck Construction (Sask.) Ltd., 300 days; Kenwood Engineering Construction Ltd., 240 days; Oland Construction, 290 days; Pool Construction, 365 days, and Foundation Com- pany of Canada, months.

A consultant's study on health care services here has been approved by hospital boards involved and is now getting to the level of a func-. tional plan, said Mr. Russell. After the functional plann- ing is completed, an architect will be hired to do the final work. "This will involve a lot of negotiations with the Alberta Health Care he said. MEETING SET A meeting scheduled for March 6 will result in more developments, he said. The plan calls for centralization of obstetrical gynaecology services at-the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital. Pediatrics will be centred at St. Michael's Hospital, he said. All out patient services will be centralized at the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital. Ambulance cases should go to St. Michael's, the major trauma centre but (here will still be emergency services at the Lethbridge Municipal for people "who. b'ring their own troubles in." "Also they recommend ex- pansion of the operating room facilities at the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital most of the physical expansion will take place at the Municipal Hospital." Smaller additions will be made to St. Michael's "they don't have enough bathrooms for example." The county council was in- formed there are not enough births in- the city to justify having an obstetrical ward in both hospitals. "If we get them in one hospital we will be able to just about balance the books." Mr. Russell said St. Michael's is recognized by ambulance services as the emergency centre. COMPROMISE "There will be one big centre where ambulances will lake bad car accident victims. They will know where it is. There would still be emergency services at the Municipal. But the main dis- aster services will be at St. Michael's." He said the boards have agreed to the concept. "This was probably the hap- piest compromise we could come to between the two A wage contract with the Health Sciences Association, (lab is on the point of being accepted. "CUPE and the Operating Engineers are the two out- standing contracts he said. Regarding CUPE negotiations, the conciliator's report has been submitted and rejected. Negotiations are province wide with the Alberta Hospital Association negotiating for all the hospitals. Mr. Russell noted there are long waiting lists for both nursing and auxiliary hospitals. So long, in fact, that patients are "backing up into the active hospital." "The provincial govern- ment has taken the position we have got enough nursing home beds." GUIDELINE The commission's guideline is 2.5 nursing home beds per population. "We have four here. Medicine Hat has over five beds per thousands. We have 139 beds in Lethbridge." To get around these provin- cial guidelines the Taber MD is proposing to separate and build its own hospital, he said. "Also because they have an obsolete hospital they want to see rebuilt."
