The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta JMHMty It H74 THI LITHMMOOI HlftALD Socreds rake NDP decisions CRANBROOK (HNS) Socred member of the legislature for adjoining Columbia, and former minister of labor, James Chabot raked several actions of the NDP government at a Cranbrook Social Credit League organizational meeting here The sensitive target for the Kootenay area was the land department non-commitment on the area's major industry, forestry, which the Purcell Mountain Range Study has had "on the hook" for nearly two years, suspending many logging plans toward long term operations. Alternative use would be recreation and parks, with which Mr Chabot said the area was already over- supplied. The Purcells are the dividing natural ridge between the two Kootenays. He emphasized the dependency of wholesome Kootenay economy on the renewable woods resource, as opposed to Kootenay es- thetics.

Crawford opens nursing home NEIL CRAWFORD MPJOE CLARKE BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) Neil Crawford, minister of health and social development, addressing more than 250 persons in the Elks Hall Blairmore Friday, commended all groups, organizations and individuals who took part in the work in- volved in getting the Senior Citizens Lodge and Nursing Home built in the Pass. He said that a facility of this nature, the first of its kind in Alberta is like a living, breathing thing and has to have continuous functions and programs to make it carry on successfully. He urged people here to see that this duty was carried out. Increase in costs of rates charged to persons entering senior citizens lodges was up to the foundations, he said, and rates were set according to costs of operating the units. Most units operate on a break even basis. ,1, Concerning., permission to have a liquor bar in a senior, citizens lodge, he said he hoped where it was clearly in- dicated by the people that they wanted this service it could be arranged Charles Virtue, repre- senting the Alberta Hos- pital Services Commission, said he would give the com- mission an enthusiastic re- port on the official opening and functioning of the local complex. He said he could feel the happiness in the home, which he described as a unique and novel com- plex. Joe Clarke, MP for Rocky Mountain described the com- plex as a "model to other parts of Alberta" showing what people can do when they work together. He said it shows respect to the senior citizens who built the Pass.

The various levels of care available in the complex from the senior citizens residence to the nursing home to the hospital, will allow a person to remain within a .familiar environment, even though his needs may change. The pilot project, with its combined services, is under the auspices of the Alberta Hospital Services Commission and the Alberta Housing Cor- poration. There has also been integration of the ad- ministration, with one board of trustees responsible for the hospital, nursing home and senior citizens lodge ByVERNDECOUX Crowsnest Pass Bureau BLAIRMORE The Oldman River Regional Planning Commission will use all its resources to solve the problem of disposing of the Crowsnest Pass' garbage. The decision was made at a meeting held in the Blairmore council chambers recently, attended by representatives of all Pass councils, Improve- ment District No. 5, lands and forests department of Lethbridge, the department of the environment from Lethbridge and Edmonton, the department of health and social development, Edmon- ton, the commission and several other interested par- ties Chairman of the meeting, James Burger of the Chinook Health Unit, said that after three years of looking around for a landfill site it was hard to find one suitable site let alone five sites to serve all the Pass communities involved He said an ideal site would be one that would be accessible in all weather, that would not create a fire hazard and would not pollute air or water. Problems faced by the area include high winds which blow refuse about and carry unplea- sant aroma and smoke, a .water table in the area that would contaminate streams and water supply, snow con- ditions in winter that would necessitate continual plowing, long costly hauls for garbage trucks and other factors. Garbage disposal in the area costs Coleman an- nually. Blairmore and the Improvement District No" 5. annually The possibility of in- cinerating the garbage was considered but it was pointed out that such centres as Calgary. Edmonton and Medicine Hat had abandoned this method because of the high cost D'Arcy Rickard County stand on non-union salaries discussed secretly FOREMOST Coun. Ed Torsher reported on the negotiation committee's stand on salaries for non union employees at Friday's County of Forty Mile council meeting. But the press was asked to leave the room. And secretary treasurer Roy Wallman was barred too. Coun. William Kenneth Babe said he won agreement from the reporter at the December county council meeting not to print his statement that firefighters at Bow Island receive or remuneration each month. The figures slipped into the Dec. 29 edition of The Herald. Coun. Ed Torsher said it looked like each firefighter was getting either or when in fact the whole 15-man volunteer corps wasn't getting that much. Coun. Babe said nothing should have been printed. He read his municipal committee report. Then he moved that the county go into a secret session. Before the closed session, which lasted hours, Coun. Babe reported: William Yates and R. Bateman of Royal Sand and Gravel gave gravel rates as follows: Eighty eight cents per cubic yard for stockpile; 78 cents per yard for delivery from the plant to Mr. Yates' truck; 88 cents per yard for delivery of gravel from the plant to county trucks and government rates for any hauling that would be done by Royal Sand and Gravel. The Imperial Oil Agent at Foremost was in to discuss an offer to supply the SC70 road oil at 12.7 cents per gallon plus 1.5 cents per gallon for tax and 5.4 cents per gallon for delivery to Foremost. Coun. Babe further reported: Peter Gagon of Alberta Oil and Surfacing indicated that he was interested in contracting the oil surfacing work and that he would be prepared to do the work by the chip spreader method at a rate of five cents per gallon for spraying oil material and per cubic yard for spreading and packing the Shut off cars, drivers warned PINCHER CREEK (Special) RCMP have warned motorists not to leave vehicles running while un- locked Numerous motorists have left their cars running while unattended and two motorists were losers their cars were stolen. thefts were a free way to travel home for the culprits gravel used at surfacing projects. Council rescinded a road weight limit bylaw and passed a new one limiting trucks to pounds on the road trom Foremost to Highway 3. Coun. Babe reported the municipal committee approved purchase of a snow plow for A three ton truck is needed. A total of feet of snow fence will be purchased. Other items in the municipal report were skipped over. FOREMOST The case of the cattleman who failed to protest a damage claim has this reporter so confused he doesn't know if he is coming or going. However, by piecing together bits and words and sentences from Friday's County of Forty Mile council meeting we have been able to discover: That Herbert Orman of Foremost put a cow and a calf in Doug Piper's pound at Foremost; That this cow had been out at Mr. Orman's farm for about one year and had a calf during the year; That he fed the cow and calf before putting them in the pound and he wanted feed and feed damages of a month and trucking damages and the whole thing came to about but he didn't get it; That about a week later Richard Walters put another heifer in the pound and he wanted damages; That this heifer turned out to be Mr. Orman's and he claimed it and he had to pay the damages, plus for the poundkeeper, and he paid it; That the thing Mr. Orman should have done was to put up another and protest the damages because Mr. Walters can't claim for feeding this animal because if this animal hadn't been claimed it would have been sold at auction like the cow and calf that Mr. Orman fed were; That the county council Friday decided to look into the whole matter with councillors Bill Gejdos and Russell Scratch and Reeve Dave Vandenberg acting as investigators; That the county cannot recognize costs for feeding an animal anyway and that the committee will contact the impounder to determine the amount for feed and the amount for damage to feed; And that Coun. Gejdos says if the cow ate the feed the feed was definitely damaged; And that Coun. Lyle Nattrass says the whole thing should be looked into because "you are supposed to put the animal in the pound immediately, not keep it around and feed it." And in that pound there are other interesting animals too, we bet.
