Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta District doings Visit synagogue PORT MACLEOD (Specitil)-The Junior and Senior HiC groups of Trinity United Church were guests at the Jewish Synagogue in Lethbridge recently.

All trophy heads must be in clean condition, tagged and have a card giving information about when and where the animal was shot. Assess pastures TABER (HNS) - Privately-owned grazing lands in the Taber MD currently are being re-assessed so the assessments will reflect adjustments as to location and market advantage or disadvantage. The re-assessment is being done under an order by the minister of municipal affairs in order that owners will be advantaged of possible assessment reductions which will be effective for the 1971 taxation roll. The ministerial order allows the MD to Jan . 22 to complete the re-assessment, until Feb. 26 for the mailing of assessment notices, and until March 31 for the receipt of appeals against the new assessments.

Agriculture the key in south area SNOW HERE, THERE, EVERYWHERE - There is no shortage of snow in Blairmore and other Crowsnest Pass areas these days. This automobile in Blairmore was nearly buried after a recent snow and snow removal equipment is busy keeping roads and highways open. Following last Thursday's snowfall, a total of 36 inches was on the level. Five B.C. school districts probe fs1mre wealth' plan By NANCY MILES Special Correspondent CRANBROOK (Special)-The B.C. School Trustees Association has written to five East Kootenay school boards suggesting they appoint a long-term liaison officer to determine the pro's and con's of consolidation into a single large school district. The letter suggests naming of F. P. Levirs, who resigned several months ago from the position of provincial superintendent for the department of education. East Kootenay's present five school districts now include Cranbrook at about 3,900 enrolment, Creston - Kaslo at about 3,000, Fernie at 2,600, Kimber-ley at 2,400, and Lake Windermere at 1,300. The original suggestion was made by Hon. Donald Brothers, minister of education, to the boards that they consider the matter, but any practical action must be initiated by the boards themselves. A few meetings have been held by the East Kootenay branch of the BCSTA but only the most casual discussion was undertaken. The provincial school tax rate evolves through a basic assessment on land and improvements as does general purpose tax, but applies additionally on assessment of industrial facilities including machinery and equipment. Thus major operating industries within a school district proportionally reduce the burden of school taxation on the home-owner. Kimberley school district with its multi - million Comin-co installations' school taxable has held a hearty advantage, but now it additionally has within its limits the Crestbrook Mrs. Chell heads hospital group FORT MACLEOD (Special)-The Hospital Aid recently held its election of officers. Those elected for 1971 were Mrs. Ruth Chell, president; Mrs. Kay Townsend, vice - president; and Mrs. Nora Perrin, secretary-treasurer. During the past year the Aid has been responsible for mending and sewing at the Municipal Hospital. They have also provided entertainment for patients in Blunt's Nursing Home. During the past few weeks they have collected gifts for the New Years' baby from merchants. The gifts were presented to little Christian Kraemer, and gratefully received by his mother, Mrs. Jake Kraemer. TROPHY WINNER COALDALE (HNS) - Don Corey was the trophy winner in the predator hunt held by the Coaldale and District Fish and Game Association. He received 400 points for the two red foxes he shot. There were about 20 participants. Pulp and Paper Ltd. Its school rate in 1970 was 33.07 mills. Kaiser Resources developments are within the Fernie school district, in addition to Crow's Nest Industries Ltd. woods plants and coal potential and the multi - million Fording River Coal Ltd. developments. Its 1970 school rate was 33.29 mills. Cranbrook school dist r i c t, though operating headquarters for Crestbrook pulpmill, is otherwise industrialized with com paratively insignificant lumber manufacturing and in 1970 had 37.82 mill school tax rate. Lake Windermere also is industrial ly dependent on lumber since its tourist industry does not have equipment and machinery, and had 35.75 school mill rate in 1970. Creston - Kaslo school tax rate in 1970 was 39.29 mills with Cominco's Riondel opera tion the major single industry. All five have locally elected school boards of city and rural trustees on stipend basis, and all five maintain substant i a 1 staff administration centrc. which probably would still be necessary though pooled data processing accounting procedure might possibly reduce staffs to some extent. Any action toward a final de cision of either partial or com plete merger with a single stan dard of school tax rate and quality of education and services is expected to take at least a year or two. Tuesday, Jomrary 19, 1971 - THE UTHBRIDGE HERAID - J Changes plentiful in Coyote Flats By MARIE SOllGARD Herald News Service IRON SPRINGS - Early settlers coming to the area be-when the Oldman and the ittle Bow rivers known as Coyote Flats were confronted by a very sparsely settled expanse of prairie wool over which roamed herds of wild cattle by day, while the silence of night was often broken by tho lonesome howl of the coyote. The past 70 years have brought many changes and today the area, one of the most productive, a g r i c u 11 urally speaking, in North America, comprises several bustling communities. The past year has been rather frustrating for those involved in agriculture. There was no rain during the summer and the only moisture available was that provided by the use of irrigation facilities. A destructive frost disrupted harvesting operations and lowered the sugar content of the sugar beet harvest considerably and potato growers also experienced a substantial loss in their crop. Grain crops yielded somewhat less than average and program "Lift" was not especially beneficial in this area, The past year was one which will long be remembered by many people for numerous reasons. The communities were saddened by a number of tragic deaths. The year also witnessed the end of another era with the death of a very prominent cattleman, Harry Kane, in his 80th year. The last of the original homesteaders still living on his homestead, he had devoted a lifetime to farming and ranching and, at the time of his death, was still operating one of the larger cattle feeding operations in the area. A benefactor to many people in time of need, he will long be remembered for his good deeds to those in despair. During the year a number of people had the good fortune to experience what might be aptly termed as a trip "behind the bamboo curtain" as they visited Expo and toured Japan. They found it to be land of shaip contrasts where the culture of the New World is gradually infiltrating into the Old World, a land where primitive methods and modern technology can be seen in operation side by side, such as the case where a wo- nii.n was observed tilling the soil by hand in a field adjacent to an ultra modern chemical factory. Last year, as in previous years, there was a notable exodus of young people from the area as some went to college or university to complete their formal education while others engaged in careers in various walks of life which took them out of their home communities. Several young men from the Orient arrived in the community and became absorbed in the melting pot of nations as they sought to learn more about our agricultural way of life. Needless to say, they, as newcomers before Uicm, were impressed by the vastness of this country and the contrast between the techniques used in their homeland as compared with here where fields, machinery and crops are all on a much larger scale. Major fires caused extensive damage to property in the area. The Ikebuchi Garage was destroyed at Turin while a land- mark in the Iron Springs district, the Hunt house on lira Martin Wieland farm, was destroyed late in the year. As the year drew to a close Mis. E. (Marion) Hammon, of Turin had the lienor of becoming the youngest octogenarian in the district. A family dinner at which she was the guest of honor marked the occasion. With the forecasted increase in agricultural product sales it looks as if 1971 may be a more successful year than that which preceded it.

Patton's Lake is a spring fed slough just north of the 160-acre complex. Irirst development phase at $125,000 is construction on benchland below the lake of a three-eighths mile oval asphalt race track banked at 15 percent on the curves and four per cent on the straight-away. This is almost double the length of vhe frenzied Moir Park stock car oval developed by Cranbrook Racing Association, affiliate in the Alberta Modified Racing Association. Ferncrest will provide bleachers and car park spectator space for some 4,800 people. Included in the first phase is a further northward fractional mile of new road to provide railway overpass on the Kimberley - Cranbrook highway. Both cities arc deeply involved in stock car racing. This sport has been a preoccupation here for about four years, starting its competitions on the former city airport runway prior to its conversion into Industrial Park. Need counselling COALDALE (HNS) - John A. Boon, director of preventive social services for the Barons Eureka Health Unit, recently told town council, "It is not the parents' fault when children take drugs. Children are responsible for their actions to a certain age and after that the parents are not to blame." More counselling of parents and children was seen by Mr. Boon as a necessary measure.
