The McNally*' answer to the problem of unwanted driveway snow, the study in ice is glued together by freezing water and will probably endure well into spring. Mrs. McNally, away for a couple of days in Edmonton, said she returned to find it guarding the driveway, but didn't dare ask.what it is. A see-through rabbit? Eskimo totem pole?

Chances are, if you knew the percentage of alcohol in your blood stream that ynu would take a different action than if you were totally unaware of it.

IMPAIRED DRIVERS A person who is seriously impaired as a driver may not be legally intoxicated according to the .08 blood-alcohol level deemed presumptive of intoxication in Canada. Quick decision needed on sewage charge bylaw Lethbridge city council, faced with the need for an early decision, will begin discussion tonight of proposed amendments to the sewage service charge bylaw. City Manager Tom Nutting, in a preamble to the two suggested amendments, emphasizes the need for the new set of sewage charges to be ready by next month. The reason for this, says Mr. Nutting, is to give local industries a chance to plan ahead for the installation of pollution abatement devices such as holding tanks, grease traps or even primary treatment works. If these are to be planned and constructed by the time the new bylaw comes into effect in January, 1972, it is essential that "adequate advance notice be given all of these industrial concerns," Mr. Nutting said. Mr. Nutting explains that a new bylaw should contain surcharges for heavy loading of the new secondary sewage facilities that will encourage industry to construct their own pollution abatement equip-ment. If this is not done and the quantity of flow not reduced, he says, it is "entirely possible" that the new plant will be operating at full capacity within a few months of the time it opens next fall. He forecasts a five-year period in which the new plant could operate without additions being made, provided a "maximum effort" is made by the heavy users of the system to clean up their effluents in the next three years. Without this effort, redesign of the plant or expansion of it may be needed late this year or early in 1972, he says. The two proposed amendments are modifications of earlier plans by the city to restructure the service charges. Under one proposal the domestic charge would be $3.25 a month, compared with the present $1 charge. All other users would be charged 15 cents per 100 cubic feet of water consumed, plus surcharges for heavy polluters. The domestic rate equals approximately 32Vi cents per 100 cubic feet. Revenue produced would come to $390,000 from domestic users and $246,000 from commercial and industrial firms. Surcharges for industry would be in addition to the $246,000 and would go into a special reserve fund for the construction of pollution abatement facilities. The other amendment would set the domestic rate at $2 a month, with other users paying 13 cents per 100 cubic feet. Domestic revenue would be $241,000, with industrial and commercial firms contributing $205,000. This would not cover the actual operating cost of the plant - $190,000 a year - which would have to come from a general levy of 2.054 mills. This amendment also contains the surcharge for heavier users, intended to encourage industry to clean up their effluent and spread loading over more than the usual eight-hour shift. Building extension sought by Marathon A request from Marathon Realty Company Ltd. that it be allowed ah extension on its building commitment on the old Hull Block property will be considered by city council tonight. The present agreement calls, for building valued at not less than $1 million to start by Jan. 15, 1971. The firm is asking that this clause be deleted from the City census under way for 1971 More than 100 enumerators started work this morning in Lethbridge, as the 1971 census got under way. The enumerators will call on every home in the city, and are scheduled to have their job finished by Jan. 22. The primary use for the census is to establish the city's borrowing power. Lethbridge can barrow up to $50 per person from the Alberta Municipal Financing Corporation. It is also used for per capita grants from senior governments. Last year's official population was 39,552, resulting in authorized borrowing power of $1,977,600. The city's population increases at an average 2% per cent per year, so could jump by almost 1,000 people when this year's figures are in, increasing borrowing power by about 550,000. agreement, or that an extension of one year be granted in the period in which the city can exercise its option to repurchase the land. The land sales committee is recommending that the building commitment be extended to July 1, 1971 and the repurchase option be extended to the same date. It is also asking that Marathon be required to submit a full report on the status of the development of the property. The land, along with the adjacent former Stern Estate property, is the proposed site of a $3 million, 232-room, nine-storey hotel to be owned and operated by Wales Hotel Holdings Ltd. of Lethbridge. Plans for the project were announced early in September. Plans for a project in the riverbottom area are to be presented to council tonight. Allan Collins is to outline plans for a campground in the riverbottom. A similar application received some time ago by the Municipal Planning Commission was tabled pending the receipt of the final version of a report on recreation development in the river valley. The report is expected soon. Council will also have before it a new procedural bylaw. The rules of debate, committee appointments and rules governing public hearings have all been revised in the bylaw being submitted by Ald.ermen Vaughan Hembroff and Jim Anderson. Also on the agenda is a report from Tom Nutting, city manager, on the condition of city streets. Compiled at the request of Aid. Jim Anderson, the report concludes that the condition of the streets can be attributed to the fact that "our chi-nooks have failed us this winter." HaiCo expands Brooks station changes name The provincial horticultural station at Brooks, will be known in the future as the Alberta Horticultural Research Centre. The name change, according to H. A. Ruste, Alberta's agricultural minister, was made so the public will become more 1,400 workers back on job near Edson EDSON (CP) - More than 1,400 construction workers were back on the job Monday at the nearby Chevron Standard gas-processing plant after a one-day walkoff.
