Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-24,Lethbridge, Alberta Thwtday. JMtMry U. 1t74 - THI LiTHimDai HlRAkO - IS £ast Kootenay inap | Hunting season woes are increasing ready for approval CRANBROOK <HNS) - A land reserve map for .the Regional District of East Kootenay has cleared iU final hurdle and will be approved by the RDEK Feb. 23. Some 176 briefs have been studied by RDEK directors aod 10 residents wanted their land included. Most requests for changes in the land reserve map were ignored. In most cases, owners wanted their property excluded from the RDEK’s Land Reserve 1 class, the désigna* tion for land that shows agricultural capability graded one to four on B.C. and ARDA - prepared maps. The board managed to stick to its rule of including in Land Reserve 1 all private lands with a soil capability from one to four if irrigated. It did not go into arguments about the possibility of irrigating. Land Reserve 2, which will indicate prime wildlife capability on Crown land, was largely ignored in the discussions. Land Reserve 2 would not exclude agricultural use but would indicate a conflict exists. When the map and a covering bylaw are approved by toe RDEK they will be sent to the B.C. Land Commission for review and adoption. There will probably be some amendments by the commission. At Fernie, some 23 acres were considered for exclusion to provide for city expansion. About half was excluded from the land reserve. Mayor Vem Uphill said the city had applied to the department of municipal affairs to include the area in the city limits. But the minister waited for the RDEK reserve map decision. Sparwood, as a district municipality, includes large tracts of reserve land, but the area around the townsite is solidly excluded. Applications for various' parcâs of land which would form a rightnif-way for the Kootenay and Elk Railway were made by Crow’s Nest Industries for exclusion. But these were considered on the same basis as any other land: If they were soil capability one to four, they were included In the reserve. If not, they were left out. RDEK planner Eugene Lee said the Land Commission Act has “tremendous implications” and RDEK directors agreed they will have to ask the Land Commission hundreds of questions put by residents that the RDEK cannot answer. The RDEK map will be among the last approved in B.C. because it did more work than other regional districts. The possibility of residential or commercial expansion Was ruled out by the board as a basis for excluding land from the Land Reserve 1 classification, except where RDEK zoning has been completed and the area has been zoned for development. -Examples of zoning making a difference were on an application from Wasa, where land was within a R1 zone, that for the most dense rural residential development; an are^ south of Cranbrook zoned R5, for five-acre residential development; and a few lots near highways zoned for highway commercial development. The exception was near Wycliffe, where a parcel in the area zoned R1 was kept in the Land Reserve 1 map. Cranbrook city alderman Don Sherling told other directors that there is not enough land within Cranbrook’s present city limits to allow for five years’ expansion. Growth is now at 200 dwellings p*r year, he reported. Land Commission guidelines indicate that enough land to provide for five years’ expansion can be excluded from reserves near urban areas In Kimberley, an area that consultant Michael Strong and regional planner Mr. Lee recommended be left in Land Reserve 1, was excluded after Aid. John,Oaigle of Kimberley told the board that the land had been taken into the city. The city intended to develop it for residential use withm the next year. The Edgewater Improvement District was excluded from Land Reserve 1, and all other land with soil capability one to four was included. Directors had to remind themselves Uiey had agreed to ignore future plans by oiwers and stick to soil ca IHrector Ron bility iston of Kimberley said he wants to know more about definitions of land use and what the Land Commission means. A special case involved some small acreages above Premier Lake. On these there is a restrictive covenent against use for farming. The RDEK board decided to put them in Land Reserve 1 anyway. By MARG LUNN HenU Newt Servicc PINCHER CREEK - A grizzly bear was wounded, moose were shot and left to spoii, animals were taken out of season and hunters invaded posted land during the hunting season In this area. Fines and forfeiture of hunting privileges don’t seem to bold back the hordes of hunters as hunting pressures increase each year. One of the worst incidents was the wounding of the grizzly. There is no open season on them. It took 10 days to locate and destroy the animal, found in the Spionkop Canyon. Considerable concern and apprehension were felt by people in the area until the grizzly was killed Wildlife officers here say common sense and caution must apply in all cases when hunting in the field. Loom citizens agree a valuable resource is being destroyed when animals are taken out (rf season. Farmer-hunter relations are reported to be sliding downhill. Robert Heri)ert Opper of Calgary was lined ISOO and court costs, forfeited a moose and his rifle to the Crown, on conviction of a charge of hunting out of season. He shot a bull moose just north of Waterton Lakes National Park In the oil basin in Zone F300. Earlier Leslie Andrew Siraym of Bellevue was convicted on the same charge and lined (300. In the same incident, the killing of a cow moose, Daryl Leslie Siray of Bellevue and Gene Harold Bannock of Coleman were convicted on a charge of unlawful possession of wildlife and each was fined 1150 and costs. Convicted hunters lost all big game huntiitg privileges for one year. There were a number of convictions and fines averaging between ISO and 1100 for hunters who hunted on occupied land without permission. A number of moose were shot illegally and left to spoil, officials r^rt. A thorough investigation was carried out on every animal shot illegally and clues are sought to apprehend and convict outlaw hunters. Wildlife officers here are determined to prevent this type of occurence. A considerable number of Elk were shot this year. Abandoned^ hut not obsolete This one-roomed school house in the mining area between Michele and Elkford stands empty, but the Idea behind It has found new life in oil and mine communities in the north. Now, however, such schools are of the portable type, to remain only as long as the mining town is viable. . Scale larger here than in U.K. Farm techniques compared By MARIE SORGARD Herald News Service IRON SPRINGS - A few weeks ago John Saunders, a young English farmer, spent six weeks in southern Alberta studying Canadian agricultural methods.

College scholarship given PINCHER CREEK (Special) — Blaine Marr has been awarded a two-year scholarship to attend Casper State College. This scholarship was awarded through his success in high school rodeo by the Casper College rodeo scholarship committee, Blaine is a graduate of Matthew Hallon High School here and will be studying animal science technology. He is pasl-president of the Pincher Creek rodeo team, past-president of the Alberta High School Rodeo Association and has qualified, for the past two years, to compete in the international high school rodeos held at Henderson, Colo , in 1972 and Ogden, Utah, in 1973 He qualified in tlie finals. impressed the magnitude of Canadian agriculture, the informality of the Canadian way of life and by the absen« of domestic help in the households. Last summer, while visiting the British Isles, Dick Haney and Wesley So^gard visited him at the Saunders farm near Odium, a short distance from London. They were impressed by the agricultural techniques employed in Britain. Land is both expen^ sive and scarce. Four hundred acres of the Saunders farm is used for pasture, 600 for grain growing, and the remaining 100 acres is used as a game preserve. The pasture land is used for finishing out about 400 head of Holstein-Angus cross cattle each year. They also accompanied him to a cattle sale and noted a distinct difference from the auctioneering methods with which Canadians are familiar. The Saunders consignment of 12 head was one of the larger consignments that day. It appeared to be customary to tip the trucker and the weighman. Several auctioneers were auctioning at the same time. One was auctioning chickens, one was selling wool, and one disposed of rabbits. People crowded around another pen where the cattle were being sold, one at a time. None of the jargon used in the selling process here was used and the rap of a gavel marked a sale. There were no bleachers and the attendants wore ties and white coats. On the Saunders farm are the ruins of the first round castle built in England. One of the highlights of their visit was afternoon tea in an English garden.
