Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta District SECOND SECTION The LetKbtidge Herald Lethbridge, Alberta, Thursday, January 17, 1974 news Pages 13-24 STEAK HOUSE APPROVED; FIELD'S STORE TABLED An application by Schwartz Agencies to build a Ponderosa steak house at 1025 Mayor Magrath Drive was approved by the Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday. The steak house will be built on property now occupied by the 15-unit Holiday Motel which is to be removed from the site. In other decisions Wednesday, the plann- ing commission again tabled an application by College Shopping Mall Ltd. to add a Field's department store to the North end of the L-Mart store at the shopping centre. The application was tabled for more detailed plans showing parking provisions 9nd loading areas. \ Subdivision plans for the next two stages of West Lethbridge were also given MPC approval Wednesday. ^Something must be done^ Local teachers not happy with forking conditions :::::::::ft:::::::S:::%::::::W:::^^ Eyesores? Lethbridge city council is grappling with the problem of untidy, or downright messy, areas of the city. A bylaw may be the solution, but one major problem is the standards they would have to set. Council is wondering if city officials should have the power to enter private property to determine whether or not it may meet tidiness standards. And who is to judge what these standards would b^?.One of backers for sohfie mandatcfry regulations. Aid. Cam Barnes, told The Herald that eight or nine places in the city urgently need cleaning up. Aid. Barnes refused to comment further, but suggested we look around. We followed his suggestion and photographer Elwood Ferguson shot these photos all on the south side of the city. Presumably, these are a few of the "eyesores" Aid. Barnes complains about. . .... ..^....^ ,;-:;"*^ % *::W*:f:-SSA;::::^^ Teachers need not abide by ATA resolutions Teachers do not have to adhere to resolutions passed by the Alberta Teachers Association, an executive-director of the ATA said Wednesday. Bill Brooks, in reply to a question from the floor, told a meeting of Lethbridge ATA representatives that teachers have to adhere to bylavifs passed by the ATA but they can ig- nore a general policy stand taken by their association. The question was raised by the staff of Wilson Junior High School who were concerned that "certain staffs of schools in the city" had ignored a resolution passed by the local ATA. The resolution opposed the hiring of unemployed teachers as teacher-aides under the province's priority employment program. The Wilson Junior High School staff feared that if teachers were allowed to ignore an ATA resolution on one issue it may set a precedent for others to ignore any or all resolutions passed by the ATA in the future. Mr. Brooks said the ATA policy on resolutions was designed to allow a certain amount of freedom for the individual teacher. Gerry Heck, local ATA president, said he hoped teachers who opposed an ATA resolution would make their opinions known to the Lethbridge ATA executive rather than the school board and the press. The ATA representatives agreed to send a letter to the public school board opposing the trustees decision in December to abolish corporal punishment in public schools without first fully consulting with principals and teachers. A committee of teachers was "looking into the use of the strap" when the decision was made and the committee was not consulted, one representative claimed. The Lethbridge ATA wilk support a Calgary principal for president and an Irvine principal as vice-president in the Alberta Teachers Association elections this spring, its representatives decided. Both Larry Rappel of Calgary and Ken Kryzanowski have been active in ATA affairs for several years. By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer The working conditions of teachers must be improved by school boards or become a negotiable item during Lethbridge teacher-trustee contract talks next fall, representatives of the local Alberta Teachers Asisociation were told Wednesday. As it stands now teachers are getting "hammered in the face" when it comes to working conditions and "we can see danger signs" that indicate the situation is going to deteriorate rather than improve, the past-president of the Lethbridge ATA warned. Bill Cousins, in an inter-view following the meeting, said he hoped working conditions would not become an issue during contract negotiations because the teacher's day should remain flexible and if working conditions were included on a collective agreement it may become very rigid. But "we didn't think it would come to this and something has to be done," he said of the working conditions of Lethbridge teachers. The number of students a teacher has to teach, the number of instructional and -operational hours in a teacher's day, the additional hours spent on paper work and professional development through sabbatical leave are some of the working condition issues Mr. Cousins was referring to. Both Mr. Cousins and Terry Morse, an ATA representative on the public school coordinating , committee, expressed concern with the position taken by some trustees that they
