Time Air still gov't. concern The Loughecd government has postponed a decision on whether it will licence air trans- portation within provincial boundaries, the premier's office said today. However, the matter will be brought up by deputy premier Dr. Hugh Homer for cabinet discussion when Dr. fforner re- turns from his vacation, a spokesman said. The spokesman said Dr. Hor- ner was to bring up the ques- tion of licencing air transporta- tion within Alberta at last week's cabinet meeting, but due to a heavy agendu it was post- poned. "Dr. Homer will be hack in two or three weeks." the spokesman said. "It is sale to sny that Ihis matter will be dis- cussed by the cabinel wilhin a month." The cabinet discussion will in- volve a Time Airways applica- lion to open a route lo Grande Prairie. Despite the fact that the pro- vincial government gave sup- port lo Time's application, the Canadian Transport Commis- sion in Ottawa rejected Ihe Time application and awarded the route to Thunderbird Air- ways of Prince George, B.C. When Dr. Homer was in Lethbridge Iwo weeks ago, lie said air transportation within Alberta should be "a provincial responsibility." __________ Monday, July 17, 1972 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD H Annual folk dance planned forNikka Yuko on July 23 Men are loo shy to lake pail ed lo last aboul half an hour in a Japanese folk dance lo The Obon Dance is part of 2 staged for Ihe public July 2.1 church ceremony in memory al p.m. in Ihe Nikka Yuko.of Ihose who have served Iheii garden al Henderson Lake, community and died.

Illegal entry costly Grant act branded unfair by owners of mobile homes Anthony Lloyd Torrj of Cali- fornia was fined and as- -sessed court costs or given the alternative of live days in jail when he pleaded guilty in provincial court to a charge of illegal entry into Canada. Norman Leclaire of Leth- bridge was fined when he pleaded guilty to a charge of fishing in closed waters of the South Castle River near the community of Beaver Mines. By GHEG MCINTYHE 'lleralil Staff Writer Mobile home owners have lashed out at the governmenl for increasing Iheir annual lic- ence fees Ihis year, in some cases more than 100 per cent. Municipal taxation officials reply lhal much ol the criti- cism is unfair, since with the homeowner grant going lo mo- bile home dwellers for the first time this year, annual fees are lower than last year in many cases. The controversy centres on amendments to the Municipal Government Acl and Ihe Home- owner Tax Discount Act lhal apply Jan. 1, 1972. Rather than being levied a flat rate for municipal ser- vices, mobile home owners now are assessed on a formula based on the age of their home, its size, additions and the local mill rale. Last year the City of Leth- bridge set a 590 maximum for annual mobile home licences. The County of Lelhbridge set the maximum licence fee al I formula, an average mobile home that last year paid S120. may now have to pay aboul 5200. Municipal authorities are that the new fee is loo high.'1 said Art Ekman of Coalhursl. presi- denl of Ihe Southern Alberta Mobile Home Owners Associa- tion. "It's too big a jump al c one lime."
