Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Recognized Eric Price of Blairmore, principal of the Crowsnest Consolidated High School, has won a certificate from the University of Lethbridge in recognition of the service he has rendered to the uni- versity. He served on the university senate from Jan- uary, 1967, until January of this year. A teacher since 1951, he was principal of the Isabella Sellon School at Blairmore for three years before becoming principal of the new high school in 1971. Sparwood hospital step closer CRANBROOK (Special) East Kootenay Hospital Re- gional District board chairman Vincent Downey and adminis- trator Frank Bertoia assume ministerial approval for start on preliminary planning for a new Michel Natal Hospital at Sparwood. This follows a meeting with J. W. Mainguay, assistant dep- uty minister of hospital ser- vice, and J. G. Glenwright, BCHIS construction and plan- ning, along with Michel-Natal Hospital Society chairman Cyril Cimolini and Fernie Hos- pital Society chairman Fred Medley. In 1969, when the most re- cent capital expenditure refer- endum was approved by re- gional ratepayers, a 66-bed Fernie hospital was the main Crowsnest Pass area item. It is now within a few months of occupation but sub- sequent population surge with coal mining east of Fernie altered population centres and total area hospital needs were raised to 87 beds. Tentative board plans limit operating beds in the new Fer- nie hospital to 60 and transfer the other 27 beds to a new plant at Sparwood, 20 miles east, to replace the small frame Michel Natal Hospital, also in Sparwood municipal district which had been origin- ally scheduled for phase-out. Sparwood centre, where the population surge is most con- spicuous, is at the junction of the Elk Valley road whre the coal mining action extends come 40 miles north. General ca'pital construction plan alter- ation calls for an emergency treatment centre at Elkford, well up this valley. With 1969 bylaw amount and approved construction finish- ed, Sparwood plan would be the major item in the next set of regional capital expenditure projects over three to four years, in which Lake Winder- mere, Kimberley, Cranbrook and Crowsnest Pass capital re- quirements would be bundled for regional approval, voted late this year if possible. Coleman recreation plan caters to young and old COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) Garry Nelson, Coleman rec- reation director advised this week that the Coleman recrea- tion board's summer play- ground program is now in full swing. More than 70 have registered for the program. Parents are reminded that they may still register their children for pat- titipaticm in events. The program offered includes a fun club from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. each weekday for children four to eight years; junior recrea- tion, 9 a.m. to 12 noon each weekday for nine to 12-year- olds and the recreation aid pro- gram for students age 13 to 15. There is no registration fee for the playground programs but it is pointed that only those children who are reg- Venturers gain first aid honors PICTURE BUTTE (Special) Six Venturer Scouts recent- ly obtained high honors here on completion of the St. John Ambulance Course. Venturers Don Woodruff, Kim Oler, Carl Simmons, Mike Oliver, Doug Takahashi and Brian Heninger, of 1st Picture Butte Troop, received higher than average marks on their final tests after working for three years to complete the requirements. Their leader, adviser Ned Woodruff, is justifiably proud of his troop of boys, all aged between 14 and 16. Most of the boys started off with him as their Scout leader and gradu- ated into Venturers to be led again by Mr. Woodruff. Their next challenge is to re- ceive the Queen's Award for Venturers. Adviser Woodruff, himself a King's Scout, has three older sons who achieved the Queen's Scout award before the Ventur- er program was added to the Scouting movement. Five younger Venturers are now working on the St. John's Ambulance Course in first aid, enabling them too to fulfil the original motto of Scouting, "Be Prepared." The troop of Venturers have been vsry active in camp- ing activities over the past three years, backpacking from the base camp and fanning out into the mountains past Water- ton and the KananasMs. This year their destination is near the headwaters of the Oldman River. SHOWER HELD IRON SPRINGS (HNS) A community shower was held recently to honor Miss Rhonda Shepherd, bride-elect of Randy Sorgard. Mrs. Helen Wieland presented Rhonda with gifts and Rhonda's sisters, Derryl and Terry, assisted her in opening them. istered will be eligible for bus trips and camping trips plan- ned by the board. The staff, hired by the board in conjunction with the STEP program, include recreation di- rector, Garry Nelson; assis- tant director, Linda White; Ruth Ash, Darlene Yeliga, Rudy Szymanek, and John Muspratt. The two latter youths will be primarily concerned with the beautification aspect of the STEP program. Also working with the recrea- tion staff on the arts and crafts program and the senior citizens program are three Alberta Ser- vice Corps Volunteers, Cheryl Markosky, Sandra Lant and Darcy Peknik. c The town of Coleman has pur- chased and up more than worth of new playground equipment for the children to enjoy, including a Billy 40 veterans visit Piricher PINCHER CREEK (HNS) The Pincher Creek branch of the Royal Canadian Legion re- cently was hqst to 40 members of the Association of 1914 1818 First World War Veterans of Calgary. Greeting them in the name of the president, C- E. De Meyer, was Clarence Weekes, branch secretary. Some of the visitors met and visited with members of Branch 43 President of the group, Phil Rogers, was present as was the past-president, D. Van Sluy. Mr. Weekes had threshed for Mr. Rogers back around 1934 so there was a lot of catching up on the past years. Goat's Bridge playhouse, four spring animals and new swings. Community officials hope that the young people will en- joy the new equipment and not abuse it as in the case of the Litter Bear that was recently installed in the park and will- fully damaged several times. WESTERN WEEK July 16-20 has been designated as Western Week at the Cole- man playground and will be highlighted by a trip to the Lethbridge Exhibition on chil- dren's day, July 18. The cost of the trip will be per child and only those children between the ages of seven and 13 and who are registered at the playground will be eligible for the trip. The bus will leave the town park at 9 a.m. and will be re- turning at approximately p.m. There will be no play- ground activities at the town on Wednesday for those children not taking the trip. Possibility of a trip to Leth- bridge for the senior citizens of Coleman during exhibition week is also being considered.
