Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 3, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, January 3, 1975 City construction passes record mark Spurred by Woodward Stores' Lethbridge Centre project, the city reached a record construction high in 1974 for the second year in a row. Figures released Thursday by the city building develop- City Scene Weapon brings sentence A 28-year-old Hardieville man was given a two-year suspended sentence after pleading guilty in provincial court Thursday to having a restricted weapon in his ear. Court was told Jack Paul Helle was apprehended by police after a high speed chase Dec. 11. He was cut off and forced to stop by a police car at the north end of the 9th Street Bridge. A sawed-off .22-calibre rifle and some ammunition were found in his car, court was told. One of the conditions of Mr. Helle's probation order, given with the suspended sentence, is he not have a firearm in his possession for two years. Mr. Helle was fined and had his driving licence suspended for nine months after pleading guilty to an impaired driving charge. Clean-up begun at fire site A Hardieville family, left homeless after fire destroyed its trailer Nov. 25, has begun a lot clean-up ordered by local authorities. Lethbridge County Coun. Steve Slemko said today the Wells Collier family is trying to clean up the lot. He said he will check on it further today or Monday. "The sooner he cleans it up the better it will said Coun. Slemko. Neighbors had complained about blowing soot, he added. Bottle drive Saturday The 4th Lethbridge Scout Troop will hold a bottle drive Saturday to raise money to send two scouts to the World Scout Jamboree in Norway in July. The drive will begin about 9 a.m. and finish about 1 p.m. and will cover the area east and west of 13th Street South. Campaign moving to objective The annual TB Seal campaign, with three weeks to go, has attained 85.3 per cent of its objective. Lethbridge and district residents have returned Seal envelopes with Wilson students start over again Re organization of timetables, improvised classroom facilities and a hunt for new locker space fac- ed many of the 223 Grade 7 students who returned today to fire stricken Wilson Junior High School. Clean up operations and timetable re organizing should be finished at the school early next week, the public school board's director of curriculum said today. George Sevan said students will have to arrange timetables today and find their makeshift classrooms which replace the 10 destroyed by fire Dec. 9. New classroom areas now include one of the school's home economics rooms, the cafeteria, gymnasium stage, shop and library, Dr. Bevan said.

Dr. Bevan added all other classrooms will be fully utiliz- ed where before they may have been vacant at various times during the day. Grades 8 and 9 will not be drastically affected by the changes because the fire struck in the Grade 7 wing of the school. An inventory of text books will be taken today to find how many were lost in the early morning blaze. An order for new books will be sent im- mediately, Dr. Bevan said. Some texts were recovered after the fire, sent tb be rebound and are expected back at the school shortly. Students whose lockers were in the destroyed wing will have to double up with other students for the remainder of the year, he said. Wilson began the spring semester today to gain one of several school days they lost when following the fire. They will attend school for 15 minutes longer each day to make up another five days of classroom instruction.

While inflated construction costs likely contributed to the increase, the total reflects the construction activity in the city. Woodward's accounted for nearly one third of the total, with construction valued at The construction pace is ex- pected to continue into this year, although one major pro- ject, the million Lethbridge Research Station complex, won't be reflected in city building figures as it is outside the city. A February start is planned, however, for the provincial government's million ad- ministration centre down- town. Industrial construction ac- tivity may slow this year, simply because the city has used up all it's serviced in- dustrial land and won't likely get any more on the market in the area slated for industrial expansion until the latter part of the year. Permits worth were issued in 1974 for factory and warehouse construction. Residential construction dipped only slightly in 1974, with 421 building permits for single family houses issued, down just 22 from 1973. That figure contradicts the national trend in the housing industry. Beset by tight money conditions, the in- dustry saw housing starts dip from in 1973 to last year. The value of the houses un- der construction here in 1974 rose to from in 1973. Part of the reason the hous- ing slump elsewhere wasn't reflected here was due to a rapid residential construction pace in the first part of the year before mortgage money became harder to get, city of- ficials say. They also say demand for housing is high in Lethbridge and will likely remain high in 1975, with a requirement of 000 new dwelling units predicted, half of them for single families. Permits for 13 apartment buildings valued at were issued in 1974, as were 51 permits for duplexes and fourplexes worth In 1973, permits were granted for construction of 27 apartment buildings including fourplexes. They were worth a total of Another 29 permits for duplexes worth were issued. After the Lethbridge Centre project, the largest single construction project started in the city in 1974 was the senior citizens' apartment tower at million. post office .M. vF.1. A loses cash About was reported stolen from the Canada Post Office in the College Mall Thursday after two men ap- parently kept the clerks busy while a third man entered the post office and made off with the money. Lethbridge city police say about 5 p.m. two men came into the Special Occasion Shoppes Ltd. where the post office is located. One of the men kept one of the clerks in the store busy questioning her about the purchase of some glassware items. The second clerk told police the other man pestered her about items in the store even though she told him she couldn't help him as she was in charge of the post office. At this point a third man allegedly entered the store, went to the post office and stole the The two men in the store then left abruptly. The one man who was interested in the glassware left without purchasing it, even though he had asked the package be giftwrapped. The two men who entered the store were described as being between 20 and 30 years old. One was medium height and medium build while the other was medium height and stocky: The third man was about 20, slim, medium height and wore a brown leather coat.

A downtown businessman is attempting to buy television and newspaper advertising to complain about the condition of city streets. "My aim is to embarrass city council into doing something about it that's all I'm trying to said Garry Kohn, manager of Anglo Stereo and Photo. Claiming that the attitude of council towards the snow removal operation has been irresponsible, Mr. Kohn said he wanted to buy advertising because he thinks the news media hasn't done the proper job of exposing the situation. "It's totally disgusting and high time something like this was brought to a said Mr. Kohn. "Driving in the city is treacherous it's caused a lot of accidents and a lot of discomfort and there's no ex- cuse for it with the taxes we pay-" Mr. Kohn said he wouldn't even notice if his taxes were raised or even or ?10 to pay for snow removal, but added: "I maintain council has the money, it's only a case of priorities where they put it." People should get on the phone to the aldermen, he said. City snow removal efforts, meantime, are still being carried out by day and night shifts, with busier streets be- ing graded at night, city Engineering director Randy Holfeld said today. The grading and removal of snow and ice is being done primarily on main streets, but busier residential streets with deep rutting, or intersec- tions that suffered from heavy drifting are also being done, the engineering director said. The city has three graders, two large and two smaller front end loaders as well as dump trucks and sanders on the job. "We're still at it, but when you work the equipment con- tinuously as we have, you have to shut down occasional- ly for Mr. Holfeld said.

Phone 327-1571 The Canadian government elevator in Lethbridge will swing into 24-hour operation Monday to catch up with huge trucks hauling grain from out- lying country elevators for cleaning and export. Jack Waterhouse, superintendent of the 1.25 million bushel capacity elevator, said Thursday a third work crew will be hired to man the grain cleaning un- its in the facility to clean the grain for direct loading in ships waiting in Vancouver. This is the second time the elevator has had to put on ad- ditional crews to move extra grain into export position un- der a special trucking program sponsored by the Canadian wheat board to max- imize grain shipments. Under the first program from February to July, 1974, some 7.5 million bushels of Southern Alberta grain was trucked to the government elevator, cleaned and moved to Vancouver via unit grain trains. The second trucking INSURANCE NOME-BUSINESS FARM Can Save You t Money SEEUSSOONI dGjENCjf 7M 3rd. S. Photx 327-2713 program started Oct. About 1.75 million bushels have been shipped from Lethbridge aboard six unit grain trains. Another train of 35 hopper cars was shipped since the start to create more space in the elevator. All the grain hauled to Lethbridge under the program has been No. 1 Red Spring Wheat, said Mr. Waterhouse. The trucks have been haul- ing from about a 100-mile radius of Lethbridge. Centres on the perimeter of the haul- ing area include Vulcan, Milo, Arrowwood, Blackie, Lomond, Vauxhall, Travers, Bow Island, Winnifred, Foremost, Etzikom, Orion, Warner, Milk River, Coutts, Magrath, Whiskey Gap, Card- ston, Claresholm, Fort Macleod and Brocket. Many other centres within this radius are also providing grain for the shipping program. The second program is scheduled to end Jan. 31 but there is an option clause that could extend the program to the end of April. This program differs from the first as trains leave Lethbridge as robot units with a power source spotted in the centre of the 82-car train. The first program called for the cars to be taken to Calgary to be formed" into the unit train. The latest push to increase throughput in the Lethbridge elevator means 20 extra jobs in Lethbridge. These casual jobs at the elevator are in ad- dition to the 16 permanent jobs at the facility. About 30 trucks are involved in the program, making a combined total of 90 trips dai- ly to the government elevator.
