Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta IN ROMANTIC MEXICO 1'f Days on (ho Beach of PUERTO VALLARTA Inclusive from Calgary Priced from only ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 32BO201 The LetKbridge Herald SECOND SECTION Lelhbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, July 5, 1972 PAGES 17 TO 30 NOW IN OUR NEW LOCATION CECIL OXENBURY DISPENSING OPTICIANS LTD. 101 PROFESSIONAL BLDG. 4th AVE. i. PHONE 328-7121 "Do you hove a ipare pair of gfauei for holiday MLA unconcerned with secret meets By GREG McINTVRE Herald Siaff Wrilcr Dick Gruenwald (SC Leth bridge West) is not concerned about a Lelhbridge Community College decision to close boan meetings to the public. The MLA and former school trustee told a Kiwanis meeting lhat "the real Jccisions" by school, municipal and proviji cial governments are all madi in committee behind closed doors anyway. He said the news coverage that Lelhbridge urea people go of legislature activities this spring was not of the decision- making process at all, but sim- ply the ratification of decisions that had already been made earlier by the Conservative gov eminent in cabinet meetings. "That's why I really don' get all hung up on the Lclh bridge Community College de he said. He reviewed the spring sit ting of the legislature his first as an MLA after being elcded in August 3971. Mr. Gruenwald said his party leader, Harry Strom never told him how to vote on an issue "Maybe that was because I never bothered to ask." He proposed that budget es timates for the coming fisca' year be considered by a fi- nance committee rather than be debated by the legislature as a whole. The few weeks spent on the budget debate at which each of the 75 MLAs had the oppor- tunity to speak could have better been spent debating new legislation, he said. Mr. Gruenwald attacked "had legislation" the bill pass- ed tlu's spring that exempted people 65 and over from edu- cation taxes on residential prop- erty. "There is no way Just being 65 means being he de- clared. He criticised Advanced Edu- cation Minister Jim Foster for his "indecision" in letting the terms of some members of the Lethbridge Community College board expire June 30, without Pre-lnventory SALE Discounts from 20% TO 50% off MARQUIS Flower Shop Phone 327-1515 immediately a p p o i n ting re- placements. He also called for all ceme- teries in Alberta to be run by public organizations, such as municipal councils. In an obvious reference to financial troubles at Archmount Memorial Gardens Ltd.; he said "you have no control of what, a privatt operator is go- ing to do, or of where the cemetery is going to go from his hands." He also repeated his conten- tion that the speed limit should be entirely removed from the four lane Calgary Edmonton highway. Schools dispute to conciliation A three man conciliation board will intervene in the con- tract dispute between the Al- berta Teachers Association and the Southern A 1 ber t a School Authorities Association. Both sides are still waiting for the provincial labor depart- ment to establish the board as recommended by Neil Graham of the Board of Industrial Re- lations in Calgary. Mr. Gra- ham met with the teachers and trustees for two days in early June as a conciliation officer. Bill Casanova, ATA southern Alberla representative, said when the talks broke down in May, the two groups had reach- ed agreement on about 75 is- sues but were still far apart on money matters. "They offered 2.5 per cent and we are asking slightly more than seven per he said. The length of the next con- tract is also in dispute. Teach- ers want a 12-month agree- ment while trustees want a two year pact. The current contract expires at the end of August. Approximately teachers are involved in the negotia- tions with SASAA, which repre- sents all 18 schools south of Vulcan and Brooks, except Lethbridge and Medicine Hat. WHAT HAS 16 LEGS, FOUR WINGS AND TWO HEADS? Michael Monaghan, 10, left, and his brolher, Gerard, 7, right, of 2403 15lh Ave. S., are holding the answer to Ihe question. While on 1he way to visit a friend Tuesday, Gerard discovered a Sia- mese-twin molh. "Bolh halves of the moih are olive, but one side seems a little strong- er than Ihe said Gerard. The brothers said the unusual insect can fly "a litlle bit." The boys said ihey intend to kill and mount the moth. The moths are joined togeth- er at the lips of their Jails and always appear to be working in opposition to each oth- er.

The exact location of the fire hall has not been determined but it is understood the facility be built near the west end of 6th Ave. S. With two more readings of the bylaw, the money will be borrowed this year and con- struction could begin late in the year or early in 1973. Council also authorized study by the city manager into the feasibility of providing full fire protection service for the County of Lethbridge from units within the city. The subject was brought up in a letter from the city man- ager to council concerning fire protection for the Lethbridge Correctional Institute, which is in the county. The study will look at a pos- sible cost sharing proposal, among the city, county and orovincial gaol, for fire proteC' .ion. City Manager Tom Nutting said, in the letter, the cost sharing proposal could be ben- eficial lo the cily when Ihe fire nsurancc underwriters re-rale Lethbridge to increase man- sower and equipment for local 'ire protection services. A 51.500 per acre price lag was put on industrial park land by cily council Tuesday. Until now, the price has been legotiated by the city and the developer interested in land.

The costs rise just above if the city is to sell 10 per cent of the land each year, amortizing the costs at eight per cent. Mr. Quinn said any large firm wanting to establish in Lethbridge would "not find much difference between and the price suggested by Aid. Chichester. A 27-month contract between the city and the International Union of Operating Engineers. Local 955, has been approved by city council. The agreement calls for an 8.85 per cent wage increase as of May 1, 1972, an 8.13 per cent increase in 1973 and a 2.94 per cent increase in 1974 until the expiry date of July 31. The negotiations, involving the city and the union repre- senting 24 members, went to conciliation last week. The union is the last lo sign a contract with Ihe city. An agreement between Ihe cily and the Lethbridge Coun- try Club lo swap land leases in Ihc river valley and coulees was approved by cily council. The city will lease 250 acres o[ Country Club land in the coulees east of Lhe golf course In tuni, Ihe Country Club will tease 20 acres of city property n the river valley for develop- nenl of an additional nine golf holes. The general membership of he club must approve the agreement before it is enacled. The 10-year lease, renewable ior 99 years, calls for some city money lo be spent on im- provements lo Ihe area. A expenditure will Iw for two crossings over slorm sewer dilchcs; a fence vill be buill separaling Uic golf course from cily-leased propcr- y for maintenance of he Country Club road year around will cost each the city will also spend for dirt fill in the area cased by the club.

PHONE Counlry Club was of some con- cern to Aid. Hembroff. He said the city solicitor had written lo provincial govern- ment authorities to determine if there would be a conflict ot interest by those council mem- bers in voting on the agree- ment. The reply from Edmonton was "fuzzy" enough to imply there would be no conflict of interest, Aid. Hembrolf said. Provincial legislation does not allow public officials to vote on matters which may see a pecuniary gain to those public officials. Mayor Anderson said each alderman should use "good judgment" in voting on the lease-swap agreement. The agreement was passed unani- mously. City council should adopt a positive policy for removing old buildings in the downlown area, Mayor Andy Anderson says. The subject was brought up during the enquiries seclion of Tuesday's council meeting. Alderman Chick Chichester suggested council take some action to have Uic Home Pit- field building, which has been standing for sometime after be- ing gulled by fire, lorn down. He also queslioned Ihe "in- creasing amount of warehous- ing in areas where Ihe zoning bylaw restricts parlicularly in the downtown area around 5lh St. and 3rd Ave. S. No action was laken by coun- cil but there was an indication the questions could be brought up officially at a future council meeting. Barber shop owners can now legally kcop Ihcir shops open until 9 p.m. Thursday and Fri- day. An amendment lo the early closing bylaw was passed by cily council Tuesday allowing barber shops to close Sundays, Mondays and holidays and re- main open Thursday and Fri- day evenings. Irrigation proposal called 'a bombshell By MIC SWHIART Herald Staff Writer Alberta Agriculture Minister Dr. Hugh Homers' call for the formation of larger irrigation districts with more autonomy was termed "a bombshell" by a local official. Dr. Homer told members o[ the Alberta irrigation Projects Association that he would like to sec a district formed on each major river basin. This would mean the formation of five or six major districts to replace the present 13 districts in the province. Jake Thiessen, manager o t the St. Mary River Irrigation District, said nobody expected the announcement but all wel- comed it. The idea behind Dr. Homer's plan is to put all the area with a common water headworks under one district. Mr. Thiessen said Dr. Hom- er didn't try to tell the irriga- tionists how to do it (form the larger districts) but left it up to the districts to come up with a workable plan within the larger district concept. There would then be more local autonomy for the dis- City council value in money bylaws By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff Wrilcr City council Tuesday gave first reading to a bylaw which will authorize the city to bor- row an additional for construction of the new library. City to purchase school huses The city will buy two new school buses to handle increas- ed student patronage this fall. City council Tuesday approv- ed a recommendation that the buses be bought for Dissenting votes were cast by Aldermen Vera Ferguson and Vaughan Hembroff. Aid. Ferguson had requested information from the adminl stration concerning the city costs for providing the service to the local school boards, on a contract basis. The transit superintendent sent a report to council on the involvement of other cities in Jie province in school busing. Aid. Ferguson said the report was "only a rebuttal to state- ments" she had made at the previous council meeting. At ;hat time, she said other cities were getting out of the school bus business. At Tuesday's meeting. Aid. Ferguson said the adminislra- jon had failed to justify buying ,wo school buses and did not show a reason to increase the cost to the school boards lo 75 cents per mile from 71 cents per mile. Aid. Chick Chichester said uj'ircg two new buses is justi- 'icd because the cost will be recovered witliin two years. Student job market An debenture loan for Ihe library was approved by council last fall. Plans released in June called for a SI million structure, which council ac- cepted and which required the additional financing provision. Detailed plans are being pre- pared by the architect, Hobins Mitchell Watson. Council also gave final ap- j proval to several other borrow- ing bylaws: for local highway construction; for street paving re- newal; for a water trunk line to the West Lethbridge res- ervoir; for street construc- tjon in the industrial park. A bylaw to discontinue the occupancy permit charge for single and two-family houses was also passed by council. City dogs bylawed? A public hearing on the dog control bylaw now before city council has been scheduled for the July 31 council meeting. First reading of the bylaw was passed by council Tuesday. The two final readings required to put the bylaw in the booKs will be given following the pub- lic hearing. If it becomes law, dog own- ers will be required to pay a flat fee to register their dogs. The bylaw would also make an owner ivhose dog becomes a public nuisance guilty of an offence punishable by a maxi- mum fine or up to 30 days in jail. Dogs caught chasing or biting pedestrians or any vehicles, barking or howling, or getting into garbage cans would be considered a public nuisance under the terms of the bylaw. The same would apply to fe- male dogs in heat which at- tract other dogs The would be responsible for kecp- Iricts, said Mr Thiessen. "We would be tetter able lo run our own affairs with our own staff. "The districts would be in a better position to bargain witi government." Dr. Horner said the irriga- tion division, recently formed with headquarters in Leth- bridge, would not be building up larger engineering staffs. He said the larger districts would be able to do their own hiring The role of the irrigation di- vision under the Alberta de- partment of agriculture would remain more in the realm of extension work and advice for individual farmers. Dr. Homer also rapped the idea of the make-up of the pro- vincial irrigation council. He feels the provincial minister of agriculture is the wrong per- son to be charman of the council. He said a representative from each of the new larger districts should be chosen to form an advisory body for the minister and that this body would replace the existing council. No date for the change to the larger district concept was announced but officials on the district level are to report back to the minister in the near fu- ture.
