Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, January 2, 1971 Great Falls airport needs rebuilding The Great Falls airport must be rebuilt or be left behind in the jet air age, airport specialists James C. Buckley Inc. have told the airport commission. The terminal's existing building and concourse space is 22,-270 square feet. The projected space required by 1980 will be 145,653 square feet. The Buckley report called for the construction, in phases, of a building that would resemble a cross consisting of the main building and three concourses that would be added as they became necessary. The airport commission is considering a somewhat smaller than suggested building program, but concurred with the Buckley report which suggested that the building be paid for with revenue rather than general obligation bonds. The use of revenue would allow the airport expansion program to pay for itself rather than creating an increased tax burden for the residents of Great Falls. // You Ask Me Trailer firms are certified Two south Alberta manufac turers of mobile homes and recreational vehicles have received "total package certification" from the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). Prebuilt Industries Ltd. of Lethbridge received certification in the recreational vehicles category and S'afeway Mobile Homes Sales Ltd. of Claresholm received certification in the mobile home category. Only 12 manufacturers in 13 plant locations in Canada have received certification in either category. The total package certification for mobile homes involves adherence to strict regulations regarding the vehicular design, structural design, plumbing, gas and electrical services. Elmer Ferguson of Prebuilt said compliance with the CSA standards is voluntary at present but indications are that provincial authorities will introduce legislation to make the standards mandatory. "Provincial legislation regarding the standards for our industry is not uniform," he said. "CSA approached the 10 provincial governments to present their standards which were generally more strict than the existing standards. "It looks like each province will make the CSA standards mandatory." DRINKING LOWERS SKILL Driving skills deteriorate at relatively low blood alcohol lev els of .05. By HERB JOHNSON E of the greatest pleasures in life is finding a place that gives the impression of being wild and unexplored. It doesn't really have to be virgin territory, it just has to be undeveloped enough to make a person feel there is still some room left for an individual to do something on his own without obeying rules and regulations and traffic signals. A real wilderness area is a rare thing today; soft drink cans have even been found on the ocean floor beneath the polar ice cap. All we really need is a reasonable imitation- a place that has been neglected by the people who impose order on our world. We have a place like this in Lethbridge-the river valley. Some people may disagree, feeling the good old days when youngsters waged gang warfare up and down the coulees are gone forever. Perhaps they are right, but for me the magic is still there. Early in the morning it is still possible to find a spot that has no noise, no people and no evidence of previous visitors except a few fences and the odd clump of trees on the horizon. But the days of the valley as a place of escape are numbered. A recreation development plan for the entire area has been prepared and will soon come before city council. Bit by bit the valley (or parts of it that haven't already been developed) will be surveyed and made fit for recreation. Everything will be planned according to sound recreation principles. Signs and arrows will point out the proper path to the most scenic view. It will probably be a vast improvement. But it won't really be "wild" anymore, no matter how much land is set aside for nature study preserves. It will be regulated-another part of our lives put into a pattern and governed by rules. If we're going to live in cities we've got to have rules and we've got to have orderly development of the river valley. But I, for one, will mourn the passing of one more place in which a person can at least imagine there is room to explore and discover on his own. Air pollution increasing A DENTIST'S AUDIENCE-Dr. Mike King-Brown works on one patient while others wait their turn, watching and adding oohi and aahs. Mrs. King-Brown, lower right, assists her husband. "The casual dress and easy approach with the children helps break down the gap between patient and doctor," said Dr. King-Brown. City man 'Flying Dentist' Sam Kalafat, director of the city-county health department of Great Falls' air pollution project, believes that the air in his city is getting dirtier. Recent test results indicate that the amount of unseen pollutants floating over Great Falls has increased by nearly a third over the past' eight years. He believes the residents of the Great Falls area should not depend on the winds to carry Hearing set in drug case Vincent Thomas Brown, 21, elected trial by judge alone on several narcotics charges when he appeared in Lethbridge magistrate's court and will face a preliminary hearing Jan. 25. Ke is charged with possession of marijuana for trafficking, possession of LSD for trafficking and a new charge, importing marijuana into Canada. He is also charged separately with illegal entry into Canada. Brown is an American citizen with no fixed address, and is being held in police cells until his hearing date. the pollution away. It is also his opinion that the air pollu- tion in Great Falls is not yet apparent, but when it is it will r-> tT late to do anything about it. Mr. Kalafat has urged the formation of a county-wide air pollution control district to crack down on polluters and �\:.v serious problems from forming: By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Australia has its flying doctors, but to hundreds of Indian children in northwest British Columbia, Lethbridge's Dr. Mike King-Brown is the flying dentist. Starting new careers about three months ago, Dr. King-Brown and Ins dental-assistant wife Tess, became one of several medical - dental teams working under the department of national health and welfare. They base operations in Prince Rupert, about 100 miles from the Alaska Panhandle. They fly to patients in an area bounded by the Yukon border in the north, Bella Bella 300 miles north of Vancouver, to the south, the Alberta border to the east and the Queen Charlotte Islands to the west. The King-Brown team works about one week per month in Prince Rupert and at clinics throughout the territory the rest of the month. The majority of the patients live within a 100 mile radius of Prince Rupert, in the population centres, but the team looks after all the Indian children in the area. The schedule for the team is known for about six months prior to any visit. This is to make sure there is no medical overlapping which would crowd the small medical centre. Dr. King-Brown said he allows 24 hours for all trips, including preparation, flying time, and equipment setup. "Tess makes sure the house is organized and then gets the necessary food supplies ready. "I have to run through a mental check list to make sure the 500 pounds of medical equipment and supplies are ready for use. Then we put everything into a van for transport to the sea plane base." Once the team arrives at a medical centre, Dr. King-Brown HEINITZ PRINTERS & STATIONERS LTD. 324 9th St. S.

FREE CUSTOMER PARKING PARKING PERMITS On November 2, 1970 Section 12.07 of the City of Lethbridge By-Law No. 2716 was amended and will be in effect January 1, 1971. This By-law reads as follows* 12.07 No metered space may be used by any vehicle without charge except: (ii) On any day between thirty minutes past five o'clock (5:30) in the afternoon and nine o'clock (9:00) in the following forenoon; (iii) On Wednesday afternoon after 12:00 noon (b) by vehicles licensed as taxi cabs while the operators of such vehicles are actively engaged in taking or discharging passengers: (c) By vehicles bearing commercial type license plates issued by the Government of the Province of Alberta on which is displayed on the windshield a parking permit in a form approved by the City Manager and for which a permit fee of $20.00 per annum has been paid to the City. (d)By vehicles owned and operated by the City of Lethbridge, the Government of Canada, and the Government of Alberta on which :s displayed on the windshield a parking permit in a form approved by the City Manager and for which a permit fee of $20.00 per annum has been paid to the City. Permits may be purchased at the office of the License Inspector, City Hall. gets acquainted himself with the school principal. A system of sending children to the clinic, is set up and the team works until all the dental work is completed. At the medical centre, there is some permanent equipment but Dr. King-Brown built his own portable dental unit. It fits into a suitcase about 18 inches by 24 inches and weighs about 24 pounds. His working area is one half of the medical centre. The other half is living accomodation for the medical teams which visit the area. Four people can live comfortably. In an effort to make the children feel at ease, both Dr. Dr. King-Brown and his wife dress very casually. He said the children are very shy at first. After the first few patients, they group about the chair in a semi-circle to watch the proceedings and await their turn. Dr. King-Brown, who received his high school education at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute, graduated from the Universit; of Alberta. He practised in Lethbridge for one year, moved to Vancouver for one year and then accepted his present job. "The travel, people and the land is a whole new concept of living and my wife and I enjoy it immensely," he said. Even with up to 16-hour work days, the odd job of stitching up some accident victim, and the flights in rough weather, the couple feels a total good experience. "We feel we have done a little to help with a problem." DR. AND MRS. MIKE KING-BROWN $75 fine Robert Jansen, 20, of Cal gary, was fined $25 and $4 costs in magistrate's court recently for obtaining liquor while a minor. Jansen's fine was the maximum allowed by the law under which he was charged. He was picked up by police for speeding, and a breathalizer test showed his blood  alcohol content to be just under the .08 lapalred level. No likely targets in Alberta in event of nuclear war Bill Falconer, director of the Emergency Measures Organization in Lethbridge, said in the event of nuclear war there would be no prime target in Alberta. The greatest threat to Alberta would be from missiles that had fallen short of targets in the United States, such as the missile sites in Montana and the industry m the Pacific Northwest. A secondary, but equal threat, would arise from the ] wind - carried fallout of the blasts in the northwest U.S'. If by chance a nuclear device were to hit Calgary, the city and most of its suburbs would be destroyed. For planning purposes the EMO has calculated the effects of a detonation of a five megaton bomb (an explosion as powerful as that of five million tons of TNT.) In an area three miles in any direction from the centre of the blast there would be total destruction, from three to five miles away the damage would be beyond repair, from five to 10 miles the damage would be major and from 10 to 15 miles distance the damage would be light but evident. If a nuclear blast did occur in Calgary, Lethbridge would act as a receiving centre for survivors; both injured and uninjured. Lethbridge, according to EMO plans would provide food shelter and proper medical care for the Calgary survivors. If a five megaton nuclear blast occured in Lethbridge, Mr. Falconer said, the results could be summed up in two words: "The end." Break-in nets $1.10 Percy Laverne Dreaver, 17, of Coaldale pleaded guilty in Lethbridge magistrate's court recently on an breaking and entering charge. He was apprehended by city police Dec. 28, following a break-in at a Lethbridge home in which $1.10 in pennies was stolen. Dreaver was remanded In custody to Jan. 6 for sentencing.
