Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, January 29, 1971 No action taken on bid No action was taken by the Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday on an applica-tion by Tollestrup Construction Co. Ltd. for a mobile home park and tourist campground in the riverbottom. A report on long-term plans for tourist facilities for the river valley, requested two Eye clinics scheduled Free eye-screening clinics to test four and five-year-olds for amblyopia (lazy-eye) are to be held in Lethbridge schools in February under the sponsor shiy of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. The clinic schedule is as follows: Senator Buchanan School - Feb. 1 and 2, Wilson Junior High School - Feb. 3 and 4, Christopher Robin Nursery Feb. 8, St. Patrick's School - Feb. 9 and 10, Lakeview School - Feb. 11 and 12, Assumption School - Feb. 15 and 16, General Stewart School - Feb. 17 and 18. Clinic hours in all cases are from 9:30 to 11:30 and 1 to 4 p.m. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg. mt PHONE 328-7684MB weeks ago by the commission from the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission, was not available so the application remained tabled. The Tollestrup application, along with one from Allan Collins of Lethbridge, are both awaiting the release of a survey on recreational uses for specific areas in the valley. Undertaken last summer by the parks and recreation department, the survey was expected to be ready in the fall, At both city council and MPC meetings in recent weeks questions have been asked regarding the current status of the survey. City Manager Tom Nutting has said on several occasions there have been problems preparing the necessary maps and that the finished report should be ready soon. Meanwhile the applications have not been dealt with. Both council and the MPC having said they want to see the survey before making any decision on campground locations. The requested report by the MPC, which should be ready soon, would extract from the survey information dealing with camping and tourist facilities. Tollestrup's application calls for a campground and mobile home park north of the High-way 3 traffic bridge, on the east side of the river. The Collins site is on the same side of the river, south of the traffic bridge. The only public information so far on the situation was released last summer by Neil Andrew, the consultant who did the survey. He indicated then that the area between the high-level bridge and the highway traffic bridge would be suitable for a nature preserve through which guided tours could be taken.

Phone 328-359^j Youth home still sought A spokesman for the Lethbridge office of the department of social development says the department is not giving up on its efforts to locate a group home in the city. An application by the department to use a home at 1711 Lakemount Blvd. for this purpose was turned down this week by the Municipal Planning Commission after opposi tlon had been voiced by residents of the area. This was the second application to be turned down. An earlier site on Scenic Drive was refused for the same rea son. The department spokesman said that in view of the fate suffered by the two applications there might have to be some discussion on how best to proceed with the project. The whole idea will have to be re-evaluated, but the department intends to keep trying to find a suitable residence, he said. Group homes, several of which are operating in other Alberta cities, are used by the department to provide a homelike atmosphere for youngsters who are not able to function in a larger institution but who are not ready to be returned to their parents. Wheat-barley dilemma south in By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Agricultural Writer More information sought from Headstart committee Education program chief topic Correction The picture identified as Ivan Stonehocker on page 19 of The Herald Jan. 26, was not Ivan Stonehocker, but Richard (Dick) Stonehocker, a teacher at Hamilton Junior High School in Lethbridge. The Herald regrets any embarrassment, this error might have caused those concerned. Some southern Alberta livestock feeders are using wheat at 90 cents a bushel rather than meet the demands of barley producers for 75 cents a bushel. And in the meantime, western barley growers cannot decide which is better; delivering to elevators or selling to feeders. Lethbridge feedmill officials say the reason for the dilemma is no one knows what the final wheat board payment will be. Estimates released at the recent agricultural outlook conference held in Ottawa, indicate the final payment may not-be more than five cents. This puts feed barley now at 63 cents to 68 cents delivered to the elevator, but barley producers can sell to livestock producers and feedmJHs right now for at least 75 cents. It seems most barley producers are sitting on the fence waiting to see which buyer will' pull through with the best price. Feed officials say it is likely most producers prefer to sell to feeders for obvious reasons. First, feeders are paying more, second, selling to feeders means instant cash, and third, they do not have to wait for a final payment. There is also apparently no threat of feed grain running into short supply. Feeders are confident there is plenty of wheat, oats and barley on the farm, and it will move to the highest bidder. Feeders do concede however, that all the grain cannot be fed, so some are going to have to sell to the wheat board. Feeders conclude, that the feed grains picture is at the moment quite involved, but expect more pressure to be put on barley following the announcement of a general four-bushel wheat quota. They feel this quota will bring the price of wheat more into perspective, but more out of the economic reach of stockmen. The city's preventive social service advisory committee is to be invited to meet Feb. 18 with the committee responsible for the local Headstart program to discuss several aspects of the educational program. The decision to ask for the meeting was made at a meeting of the Headstart committee Thursday. The meeting was attended by Dr. Bob Elliott, chairman of the preventive social services advisory committee, who explained why the committee had approved the Headstart budget for only the first eight months of 1971. He asked that the Headstart committee provide information on the economic position of the pupils' parents, the possibility Mercury on another one of those trips of implementing a fee schedule and the position of the teacher relative to the ATA. Information on the occupations of the parents is to be gathered, along with the approximate salary range of each type of job. The committee also passed a motion accepting in principle the idea of a fee schedule. At present no fees are charged and the program is the only preventive social service project with no revenue. On the question of why it was Lethbridge weather is going to need a psychiatrist to cure its schizophrenic tendencies. Thursday's high temperature was 50 above, with 35 to 50 mile per hour winds, which followed temperatures of about 10 above Wednesday, which followed temperatures of 45 above Monday. Today's temperatures were expected to drop back down to about five above overnight, but the Chinook winds should return late tonight and Saturday morning's temperature should be around 40, until the north winds return by Saturday afternoon and it rapidly becomes only 15 above, until sometime Sunday when the Chinook returns and the whole split personality thing starts over again. The cause, according to the weatherman, is that the main weather front is almost on top of Lethbridge. A series of small low-pressure areas follow the main front like the wheels of a train follow the track. As the leading part of the low passes through the city the counter-clockwise air circulation associated with all low pressure areas brings in warm winds from the west. However, as the tail end of the low passes through the city, the same circulation system is 1 The Lethbridge Herald THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE; ho ,eou I am the President of one of the nations participating in the Mideast peace talks.
