The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta East Kootenay teachers negotiate pay increase 1, 1t74 THI UTHMIOOI HIIULO -19 CRANBROOK, B.C. What has become annual winter rites of school-board-teacher contract arbitration is complete. Cranbrook Teachers won 10.6 per cent salary increase, and Kimberley 10.5. Creston got 11.1, Ferule 10.5 and Lake Windermere will get the average. Arbitration is binding and memo of agreement has been signed by locals and boards. Cranbrook's 1973 scale base was for elementary conditional, a category discon- tinued for 1974. Base category is now elemen- tary basic, indicating two years training. Six- th and top category base was in 1973 for professiohalmasters qualifications. Teachers must now serve two semesters for full year salary credit, with those teaching only one semester covering eight months credith with only a half-year. With deadline for approved 1974 school dis- trict budget submission to the department of education Feb. 15, the major 1974 item is now established. In 1973, this item was budgeted at Arbitration proceedings standardized salaries in East Kootenay School Districts. Though no decision has .been announced, school boards feel indication 1973 may end in- dividual school district bargaining with province-wide bargaining an early possibility. County investigates claim Coyote problems continue By D'ARCY RICHARD Herald District Editor Coyotes ate cutting a deadly swath through sheep herds in the Pincher Creek and Claresholm areas and a Manyberries rancher lost three calves to coyotes recently. County of Forty-Mile agricultural serviceman Vern Arnold has been investigating incidents at Ed Moser's ranch near Manyberries. Three 400- pound calves were killed on three consecutive nights. All evidence points to coyotes as the villains, although neighbors are skeptical and think the dirty work is being done by wolves. Mr. Arnold, reporting to the county council, said an aerial survey of the area showed eight coyotes, with two being bigger than normal. However, after a carcass was baited with strychnine no dead coyotes were found in the area. Mr. Moser didn't, believe coyotes could pull a 400-pound calf down. He thought wolves were reponsible. Mr. Arnold said he has taught Mr. Moser's son to set cyanide guns. "There definitely has got to be dead coyotes from that he said. With the help of the pest control officer from Lethbridge, the county now has a "depopulation program" for coyotes. Coun. Lyle Nattrass of Manyberries said the three dead calves were born last spring. One dead calf has been analyzed and cause of-death was loss of blood. Coun. Frank Romeike of Seven Persons quipped that improvement district coyotes were invading the county. "There were no American flags on he joked. Mr. Arnold said he is satisfied the coyotes have been killed. Meanwhile, in the Pincher Creek MD area, numerous livestock growers have been complaining about coyote damage in recent weeks. As a result, several com- pound 1060 bait sets have been placed throughout the MD. Residents have been reminded that removal or interference with the baits is unlawful. Offenders can be prosecuted. Mr. Kettles says a careful assessment has been made of the predator damage and of other measures being taken to control them. As a last resort attempt to bring damage to within tolerable limits the authorities consider com- pound 1080 sets are once again warranted. Meanwhile, Dale Alsager of the provincial agriculture department, says coyotes are perhaps more of a problem this year because of a shor- tage of rodents, the coyote's natural source of food. Mr. Alsager, an animal pests supervisor, says predators, 95 per cent of which were coyotes, did 730 worth of damage to the sheep industry during the first six months of 1973. He says this represents only one quarter of the actual cases. His department counts only killings that are verified by predator-control specialists. The government's predator- control specialists, dispersed across 10 district locations in the province, are on 24-hour call to handle predator problems. There is a fee their for their service but work is guaranteed. Other devices used in the agriculture department's sheep-protection program are ear tags and chemicals. The chemical is effective but unpopular because of its toxicity. It is restricted to areas of low population. Mr. Alsager expects the depart- ment will have to use it, however, in areas of intense coyote infestation. The ear-tag device contains a phial filled with a chemical which has a repelling odor. "Some swear by them and others swear at Mr. Alsager says. Meanwhile, at Claresholm, a more worrisome problem has reared its ugly head the cross-bred from a coyote which has mated with a dog. The cross-breds are shrewd, bolder than the coyote and dif- ficult to catch. Silent sentinel _ One curious steer keeps watch through the trees while the rest of his buddies munch away on lush hay. Using the trees for shelter from the wind allows the cattle to eat in peace, gaining weight for that inevitable trip to the slaughter house. Nothing will keep them from gracing a plate in the near future. The Herald- District Dept. of labor clarifies hospital union contracts CRANBROOK, B.C. Hospital management union contracts under negotiation for weeks toward 1974 budgeting have been slightly clarified for Cranbrook Hospital by department of labor rulings. Hospital Employees Local 180, certified for all employees except registered nurses in 1968, has lost heavily to the Health Sciences Association, certified in 1972 for para-medical employees ranging through pharmacists and physiotherapists to various technologists: An early December ruling by the department clarified employment classifications under the Labor Act and declined the HEU application to bargain for nine paramedical classes on grounds "less than a majority of employees in the unit were HEU' members in good ing rights on hourly wage basis for the category of Licenced Practical Nursing students enrolled in the Kootenay Vocational School, part of whose training is prac- tical patient services in various Kootenay hospitals School and students alike op- posed this, but were not con- sulted.
