Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, hit 14, 1971 THE LtTHHIDCI HtRAlO Color Cove-an ulcer producing project By JOAN BOWMAN Staff Writer Visitors to Whoop-Up Days may suffer the traditional ex- hibiUon maladies of aching feet and anemia of the wallet. For CFCN Lethbridge, whose four-day Color Cove programs amount to the most extensive, continuous broadcast coverage of the six-day fair, Whoop-Up Days may signal deeper ail- ments, such as incipient ner- vous breakdowns- For the second year, CFCN Lefcbridge, in conjunction with tis Calgary mother station, has given more air-time to Whoop- Up Days than CFCN Calgary allows for the Calgary Stam- pede, The impulse for Color Cove comes from Ted Chapman president of CFCN-TV, who deems coverage of the Leth- bridge fair as a commitment of his station to the commu- nity, said Stan Bates, CFCN Lethbridge manager. The project uses a crew of 13 and a trailer of equipment valued at something short of million, plus exhibition space across from the Youtharama Building. Color Cove, running Tuesday through Friday afternoons and repeated later each night, and a one-hour special on Monday's parade, costs about ex- clusive of salaries, Mr. Bates said. And commercials do not cover that cost. The major off-camera work was handled by seven staff members of CFCN-TV in Cal gary. Along with producer Gor- don Enno, two cameraman, an engineer and three technicians, the team arrived Sunday, stil' breathing har'd from the stam- pede, with CFCN's trailer of color TV equipment. The trailer, an air-condition- ed studio on wheels, is cram- packed with a color videotape deck (from which emanated the late-night an audi( (sound) board similar to that o a radio station console and a visual board. The equipment was connect ed to an Alberta Governmen Telephone Microwave receiv ing dish atop the Youtharama Building. It was in the visual section that the producer, with Joy Kenney of Lethbridge a script assistant, decided which shots would go on the air. In two-way communication with the outside crew, Mr. En no suggested shots to the tw cameramen, advised the floo director, Bruce Nelson, whe. to signal interviewers of their time allotments and moaned a lot over troublesome cam- eras and sudden cloud appear- ances which darkened the pic- ures. Trying to compensate for on- amera mistakes, punching on icUire so viewers do not see lapse between commercials and on-location shots, is "hard in the Mr. Enno aid. For the novice, sitting at the console is like being juried alive in a casket of TV sets and while buttons. Aside from those produced on the exhibiton grounds, the commercials were handled from the CFCN studio In north east Lethbridge. It was up to Mrs. Kennedy, counting down aloud and ever conscious of a time-munching stopwatch, to signal Mr. Enno when a commercial was end- ing. The on-camera work was the job of three CFCN Lethbridge staff members: Mr- Bates, Joan Waterfield. host of the reg- ular morning show, In Conver- sation, and news editor Garry Thorn. Aided and abetted by execu- tive producer Eileen Begiene- man, a kind of running co-orid- nator between stage and trail- er, the interviewers were a study in the art of how to be distracted while not showing it. Interviewers unused to hand mikes entertained the prospect of holding them too far away or bashing a guest in the mouth with one. During one conver- sation a marching band almost drowned out the words in a rash of tootles and rum pound- ing. Some guests, or the inter- viewers themselves, would turn away from the camera and had to be signalled back into posi- tion by Bruce Nelson. Mr. Nelson, host of the regu- lar-season Pendulum, has never before acted as floor director. On Tuesday, for the first Color Cove, he was unsure how (o give time cues. Instead of using the traditional clinched fist and splayed fingers, he wrote num- bers in the air. Ills actions, incomprehensible to the stage staff, were simply the result of lack o! exper- iences, and lack of experience in on-location work by CFCN Lethbridge personnel was one of the two major problems in Color Cove. On location projects, from sports events to news specials, demand strict team work. CFCN Lethbridge not only had to use staff members in unfam- iliar jobs, but had to co-ordi- nate with the Calgary mobile crew. The second problem ws hand- ling the audio so it would ac- commodate interviews and the unexpected amplification equip- ment of Color Cove regulars, The Point of Interest. It was admitted two difficul- ties showed in the programs Tucday and Wednesday and the crews sat down Wednesday for some tough self-criticisms and an exchange of suggestions. When viewers on Thursday and Friday saw smoother-run- ning shows, they were seeing the result of professional-style co-ordination. It seems to be the plight of the yearly Color Cove that by the time problems are ironed out, Whoop-Up Days is almost over. But then so is the reason for those ulcerating CFCN stom- achs. Giant slide expressions Many prizes to be drawn for tonight Lang sets up campaign headquarters The Cardston Progressive Conservative provincial cam- paign committee has opened campaign headquarters at the corner of Main St. and 2nd Ave. in Cardston.

Phone 327-1541 CALLING THE SHOTS Lethbridge CFCN's Bruce Nelson, normally the host of the local TV station's public affairs show Pendulum, barks out an order in his new role of floor director of Color Cove, a Whoop-Up days special produced daily on the exhibition grounds. The two-hour Color Cove, seen Tuesday through Friday, and coverage of the Whoop-Up Days parade Monday, was the station's major contribution to the six-day fair. Using a mobile crew from CFCN Colgary, the local CTV affiliate presented the largest continuous broadcast of the exhibition. Bryan Wilson Photo Wind increases water use Take your average hot, wind- feet of water; at one time this night to replenish the supply. less Monday and what have you got? An ideal day for high water consumption. Figures compiled over the years at Lethbridge's water treatment plant show that con- sumption tends to increase when the temperature an obvious result of more lawn watering. But wind is also a factor. Windy days (a common feature of Lethbridge weather) tend to discourage people from sprink- kling their lawns. There's not much point in turning on the hose when most of the water ends up on the road or the neighbor's lawn. The final factor that makes Monday a good day for water consumption is the long-stand- ing tradition of first-of-the- week washday. It was on this kind of a day that the city came as close as it has this year to depleting the reservoir' supply. The res- ervoir is full when it has NOTICE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE Effective July 1, 1971, garbage charges will be increased. Domestic customers will be charged bi-monthly for one weekly pick-up. Commercial customers will have their existing rates increased by Generally, 1971 so far has been a fairly easy year for the water treatment plant. Up un- til the end of June water de- mand was down by about 23 million gallons from last year. The city used almost 876 mil- lion gallons last year in Uie first six months, compared with about 853 million this year Consumption both years was more than the 758 million gal- lon 1969 figure. Consumption in June this year was only 194 million gal- lons, down from last year's June total of 225 million. Last year's peak daily con- sumption of gallons which has hit July 16 has yet to be equalled this year. The treat- ment plant pumped more than 12 million gallons May 27 and I June 22, but has yet to hit the 13 million mark. The city's capacity to sup- ply water is under study. The administration is undertaking a comprehensive look at the en- tire water supply system, in- cluding the treatment plant, water mains and reservoirs. A second reservoir, planned for this year but delayed because of the study, will probably be built next year. At the stroke of midnight, several lucky Whoop-Up Days airgoers will win prizes rang- ng from a gold brick to children's furniture. The big prizes this year at :he fair are again provided by :he service clubs. The Jaycees, with their bar of gold and the Kinsmen with two cars, add to the excitement of the activities. Dan Ledene, president of the Lethbridge Jaycees, said the gold selling project is the main funding element for the next year's operation of the club. Two booths at either end of the midway are manned by members of the club and four gold brick girls hired through the Canada Manpower Centre to sell the tickets. The Kinsmen and Kinettes are selling their tickets in booths adjacent to the Jaycees with the money made by the project slated for furthering ice facilities for the city. The club is offering a 1971 Cougar and Vega for the ticket holders, with two draws slated for 11 p.m. Barry Temple, day chair- man, said the Kinsmen have WANTED-TOP MECHANIC Salary to for right man.
