Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 12, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Taber IDC seeks airstrip TABER (HNS)-An application to the ministry of transport for a feasibility study and cost-sharing agreement in connection with a licensed airstrip here is being made by Taber's industrial development commission. Decision to apply for this "extension of the highway system" was reached at a meeting of the commission following a presentation by general manager and treasurer of the Alberta Aviation Council Fred G. Winters of Edmonton. Mr. Winters was accompanied to Taber by Lethbridge director ot the aviation council Stan R. Broder. Mr. Winters discussed the function of the aviation council as that of administration information and promotion. He advised no provincial funds are, available for the development of a landing field. He said application for technical advice should be made to the Edmonton office of the ministry of transport (formerly department of transport). The MOT would assist in the financing of construction and operation would remain the responsibility of local authorities. The impact of an air landing strip of the industrial development of the smaller community was indicated in a film The Best Investment We Ever Made presented by the Aviation Council. Mayor Arthur H. Avery suggested the town is not in a financial position to contribute to the construction costs. Proposed location of the airstrip is on town owned property northwest of town just off the paved road to the Taber Provincial Park. Provision of the land would be the contribution of the town to the project. Scott Kirmiburgh of Kirmi-burgh Spray Services, whose licensed landing strip is at Pur- May count heads for hospital push NATAL (HNS) - An accurate population count of the Sparwood area is expected to be requested by the British Columbia Hospital Insurance Service. Frank Bertoia, administrator of the East Kootenay Regional Hospital District, said the action is expected to be taken for hospital needs in the Sparwood area. The EKRHD would likely be asked to make the count. A letter from a citizen of Sparwood, Mrs. Gwen Wright, was read at the December meeting of the EKRHD asking for a 75 bed-hospital at Sparwood. She pointed out that the present Michel hospital, which has a capacity for 19 people is always full. Taber MD area opts out of Lethbridge district TABER (HNS) - The area comprising the Taber MD will separate f r o m the Lethbridge auxiliary hospital district if a recommendation approved by Taber's industrial development commission is acceptable to Napi wins grant PINCHER CREEK (Special) - Votes of confidence by both the provincial government and the Peigan band council have assured the continuation of the Napi Friendship Association. It provides services and programs for the people of the Peigan Reserve and Pincher Creek. The department of social development, under Ray Speaker, announced a $1,000 grant to the association in recognition of the valuable work the centre has been carrying out. Earlier^ Napi and the Lethbridge Friendship Centre both announced financial difficulties, due to a cutback on the 1970-71 grant to all Friendship Centres. In the January meeting ot the Peigan band council, the Napi association's budget for the 1971-72 fiscal year was approved by chief and council. Ed Yellowhorn and Henry Potts, president and vice-president of Napi, and both council members, assured the council that future programs would continue to spotlight Indian problems. Apart from providing a court worker in Pincher Creek, the Napi Association also has a monthly magazine, and holds two programs (Hot Seat, Project ABC, dances, and film evenings) each month. The second All-Indian Art Exhibit is planned for Pincher Creek in April. four contributing municipal governments and is approved by the provincial department of health. The industrial commission has promoted the establishment of an auxiliary hospital here but government favor has been for the enlargment of of nursing home services in Lethbridge rather than providing this service here. Under existing legislation, nursing homes are under the administration of the auxiliary hospital district's board of directors. The Taber commission suggests that opting out of the Lethbridge district and the setting up of a local district is the way a nursing home can be established here. The commission mailed copies of its resolution to the four contributing municipal authorities in the district - Town of Taber, MD of Taber, Town of Vauxhall, and Village of Grassy Lake, requesting support and early response in requesting separation from the Lethbridge district. Housing climbs at Sparwood NATAL (HNS)-Building inspector Bruno Bevilacqua submitted his yearly report to council: residential building permits were issued for building valued at $3,487,950 compared to $3,064,300 the previous year.

Mr. Winters told the meeting that an application at this time might be included in the $1 million allocated by the federal government annually for landing strip development, and that it could take up to three years for completion of the project. He referred the commission to the landing strip at Ponoka as a good example of what can be done with gtisd planning and astute use of funds allocated by the ministry of transport, particularly if the local municipal government takes over the base construction for the runway.
