BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) "Council keeps trying to shove a recreation program down people's throats maybe the people don't want Coun. Wallace Aebli told his fellow councillors here this week. He made the comment when the Blairmore town council discussed its plans to hire a local recreation director. He said the Curling Club wouldn't suffer if the recrea- tion board ceased to exist here. "Hockey won't suffer and swimming won't suffer and maybe people are satisfied with things the way they Coun. Aebli said. Council decided to interview a recreation director from another city who has applied for the job. Coun. Roy Amundsen sup- ported this move, saying, "I thought, we were a progressive town. We just can't let things die." Coun. Amundsen says a recreation director is needed to organize local programs, to hire people and to get things like the ski hill going. He suggested it is time that a T bar be installed on the ski hill. Coun. Sam Goodman said the former recreation direc- tor, Bonnie Ully, now of Skiff, had organized many programs. Many continue to function although some have failed. The recreation budget for this area is about per year. Blairmore's share is about the amount of salary expected by several who have applied for the post, said Coun. Frank Capron, town representative on the recreation board. This year's budget will be shared by Blairmore, Frank, Hillcrest and the east half of Improvement District 5. The east Coleman section of ID 5 has opted out. Last year the budget was shared as follows: Blairmore, Village of Frank, and ID 5, including east Coleman and Hillcrest, Timber act expected VICTORIA (CP) The provincial cabinet said Friday the controversial Timber Stabilization Act will be proclaimed Jan. 15.

Monday, January 13, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 Storm closes highway By The CANADIAN PRESS Warmer temperatures Sun- day turned much of the weekend snowfall in southern British Columbia into dirty slush, major highways reopened and traffic began moving amid fears of snowslides in mountain passes. A low pressure system, which hit the West Coast of Vancouver Island about noon Saturday, dumped from three inches to two feet of snow on the area. Alfred Wayne Perry, 46, of North Vancouver was killed Sunday when his car swerved into a concrete abutment on Highway 99. No other traffic fatalities were reported as a result of the storm, but there were scores of minor ac- cidents. Public forecaster Tom Gigliotti said the B.C. storm moved through the Okanagan and the Kootenay region Sun- day afternoon, driving cold Arctic air north. As a result, he said, the southern part of the province can expect temperatures in the low 30s and 40s with some sun breaks today. The Trans Canada Highway in the Fraser canyon, the Hope Princeton Highway and Highway 99 from Vancouver to Squamish and Whistler Mountain were all closed Saturday and Sunday as up to two feet of snow with ice made driving treacherous. Four Greyhound buses on the Trans Canada, two northbound and two southbound, were trapped for a short time north of Boston Bar. Under wraps The unusually open fall gave the highways construction crews at work on Highway 5 between Magrath and Cardstpn a real leg up. But eventually, the winter closed in and road work had to stop. But the bridge crew is still at it preparing concrete spans for a wider crossing over the irrigation canal near Spring Coulee. Cold weather put their work under wraps last week. THE OSHRKIR CONNECTION is coming... worry may be over BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) This town's nuisance grounds problems may soon be solved. Test holes drilled in the Passburgh area are a firm in- dication that it is satisfactory for landfill sites, Mayor Ernie Fantin told council this week. Some of the areas need some work, he said. A two to three foot deep bed of slack coal may be needed in the trench bottoms. The Passburgh area would serve as a temporary landfill, he said, recommending that the Cowley area be used as a permanent site. Mayor Fantin said it will be up to residents in areas concerned to arrange for haulage of waste materials to the dump. Land will be purchased for the landfill by the provincial government. j In other business, council approved engaging the engineering firm of Underwood, McLellan and j Associates to design and j proceed with plans for an aux- j iliary town water supply. A j new well will be drilled in the j west area here. j RCMP said December work 1 involved seven Criminal Code j complaints; five motor vein- cle accidents with more than I damage each; three im- j paired driving charges; 12 I traffic tickets; three charges under the Liquor Act, and I investigation of 44 complaints.

Lots will also be available for employees who already own a mobile home or who plan to purchase one from a distributor other than Country Wide Homes, the firm that submitted the lowest price list to company officials. Lots may also be leased. Employees buying a new mobile home can apply for non interest bearing second mortgage loans of one third of the cost of the unit to a maximum of The mobile home park will be completed in July with paved roads and driveways and playground and recreation facilities. Preliminary work has been completed to put the company's mortgage interest equalization program into effect. Loans un- der the program will be made to employees when banks and other mortgage holders have accepted the plan. Kinross Mortgage Corporation (Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce) has agreed to the company's proposals under which a third mortgage loan from the company will be applied to the principle of first mortgages with interest rates of 10 per cent or greater. This reduces the monthly payments on the first mortgage. These loans will be interest free, up to a maximum of and repayable after five years.
