The lake and the land bordering to the west of the lake were designated as a provincial park in the spring of 1970. Nearly two miles of roadways have now been constructed into and within the park area, a boat launch has been completed, campgrounds are being finished off and two water wells are being drilled. The park warden's residence has been completed anc1 a walk bridge to the island in the lake is to be built, along with a breakwater. A nature trail around the lake has also been completed. The provincial parks branch had some problems with the development earlier this sum- mer when some ecology stu- dents, all boys, were brought in to work. The boys were replaced with a corps, and since then department officials have noth- ing but the 'highest praise for their work planting trees, using chain saws, shovels and doing other tasks that were too much for the boys. Architects preparing AMA plans Architects are preparing sketch plans for a proposed new Alberta Motor Association office building, and the project should go before the Municipal Planning Commission within a few weeks for approval.

Phone 327-1515 Tomorrow' sunny, warmer A general rainfall in the west portion of southern Alberta has brought additional relief to hay and cereal crops while halting the first swathing in areas east of Lethbridge. The Lethbridge area had .12 of ah inch Tuesday with a fore- cast of cloudy conditions, clearing later today. The high today is expected to reach 70 degrees with the low tonight 45 50 degrees. Tomor- row is expected to be sunny with temperatures in the 70-75 degree range. Calgary was the wettest spot of the reporting areas Tuesday with .64 of an inch of rain. Waterton followed with .59 of an inch and the driest area, Pincher Creek, received .48 of an inch. Brooks and Medicine Hat re- ported no precipitation in the past 36 hours. Full-time planner by Sept. 1 The City of Lethbridge will soon have its own full-time planner. The Oldman River Regional Planning Commission, which handles planning for the city, and the Provincial Planning Board have both approved the idea and the commission is now looking for a man to take over the job. Erwin Adderley, ORRPC ex- ecutive director, said he was hopeful the position might be filled by Sept. 1. There will be no direct cost to either the city or the plan- ning commission. The Provin- cial Planning Board now directs the financial operations of plan- ning throughout the province and the money will come from the provincial fund, collected from all municipalities. City planning in the past has teen handled as part of the commission's work for its mem- ber municipalities. The new planner will be assigned no other duties, relieving Mr. Add- erley of some of the mun- dane work related to city hall and freeing him for more long- range planning. The move is part of a reor- ganization of the city hall in- spection and building depart- ment by City Manager Tom Nutting.

The commission is made up of former municipal affairs minister and attorney-general Lucien Maynard, Hinton town manager Ross Ellis and J. M. McKay of Calgary, chairman of the Alberta Hail and Crop In- surance Corporation. Its job is to examine and make recommendations by next year on the division of finan- cial responsibilities and reve- nue sources between province and municipalities. Aiuerman Little, one of coun- cil's more knowledgeable mem- bers when it comes to taxes, feels a major concern is the load carried by the property owner. He also thinks a provin- cial sales tax is one change that is bound to come, sooner or later. One of his concerns is for Little damage in yard fire Tlie Lclhbridge firefighter were called out to fight a firs in (he midst of a fire drill shortly after 7 p.m. Tuesday. The fire was in several oid car bodies at the Davis Enter- prises Ltd., scrap yard, 530 2nd Ave. A N. A crane operator aided the firfighters by moving the flaming car bodies as they fought the fire. The fire was believed to have been started by children play- ing with gasoline. An empty gallon gas container was found near (lie scene of the fire. The firefighters remained on the scene for more than an hour. There was little damage. RESIDENTIAL AIR CONDITIONING and WINDOW COOLERS CHARLTON and HILL LTD. 1262 2nd AVENUE S. PHONE 328-3388 the low-income property-owner. The percentage of his income such a person pays for taxes is according to Aid. Little. A sales tax could help remove some of his load, he said. Al- though persons on low or fixed incomes would be hit by the sales tax, he feels it is a more equitable situation than the pre- sent emphasis on property taxes. A five per cent sales tax would make it possible to re- duce municipal taxes to be- tween 40 and 45 per cent of their present level, he said. Most of tile tax revenue would come from the middle and high- er income groups, rather than the low income people, whose needs for consumer goods is re- latively low. Aid. Little also hits' the prop- erty tax from a planning an- gle. He says the present tax structure provides no incentive to developers to go along with good planning. As an example he points to a residential lot in a downtown area, presently taxed at a resi- dential rate. If this were taxed at a commercial rate, he said, there would be some motiva- tion to develop it on a commer- cial basis. OUR OSCAR "You'd break 121 dear, if the Country Club made the holes on the greens the size of street manholes." The emphasis should be on a tax on the land itself, based on its location, he said. He sug- gested about 80 per cent tax on the land, 20 per cent on im provements to it. Under the present system land is assessed at 65 per cent of its 1969 market value. Build- ings assessment is pegged at 45 per cent of the 1963 replace- ment cost, or about 34 per cent of the present day value. This would encourage devel- opment of downtown property, particularly since a developer could go ahead with an expen- sive building without fear of paying high taxes on it. He also wants the disparity in assessed value between rural and urban property removed. This form of finanacial aid to farmers could be done away with and other methods, perhaps grants, found to help the farm- er remain competitive in the world market, he said. Beer garden is permanent The building used in the first ever beer garden at Whoop-Up Days this year will remain as a permanent fixture of the fairgrounds according to spokesman for the exhibition company. The building will be avail- able for rent on a similar ba- sis as the Fort Whoop-Up com- pound has been in the past he said. see us for fast, experf PHOTO WISHING Anglo Distributors Slereo Centre 419 5th Street South Phone 328-6922 with Mr. Byrne to familiarize himself with the territory covered by that office.

Flights land in Edmonton Effective Aug. 1, all Time Airways Ltd. flights terminat- ing in Edmonton, will use the Edmonton Industrial Airport. Walter R. 'Stabb' Ross, presi- ded of Time, said the restric lions placed on the airport a few months ago have been mod- ified, allowing all Time flights access to the airport. The restrictions which were placed on incoming traffic set times when only local and itin- erant air traffic could use the airport. The last flight for Time had to change its pattern to the Ed- monton Intel-national Airport. The period from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. will not be restricted after Aug. 1. "This will do away with all the baggage problems passen- gers had at the international airport and allow all Time bus- iness to be dealt with from one hs said. Discussion on the problem at public meeting Tuesday at- ended by 70 persons culmin- ated in five individuals repre- senting various interest groups added to an existing com- mittee of the parks and recrea- ion commission which is look- ing into the matter. Representatives of the motor- cycle club, four-wheel drive club, unorganized motorcy- clists, snowmobile owners and dune-buggy operators will meet with the three commissioners next week to discuss and rec- ommend a location for the op- eration. Mr. Nutting emphasized, wwever, that any location de- signated will be done so only on a temporary basis and will expire at the end of the current year. He said that the newly ex- )anded parks commission com- mittee would have to continue meeting and make their rec- ommendation on a more per- manent location fof MHV oper- ation. The meeting saw only the one consensus ai rived at: that more than one area in the city should be set aside for off- road travel. Specifically, an area should be designated solely for (he usa of motorcyclists and a second area should be cr'eated for the operators of jeeps, dune-bug- gies and other MRV owners. Two coulee areas adjacent to Scenic Drive, one off 6th Ave. S. and the other off llth Ave. S. were the most popular of the locations proposed by Ted Law- rence, the city engineer. Both areas contain about 80 acres. Numerous individuals ex- pressed their opinion on the matter in question. Some of the views advanced included: There has been land in the coulees designated for a bird sanctuary. Now let's give some of it for people." ''There is no area in the city now where 14- and 15-year-old youths can go to learn how to ride a motorbike." "The problem is that land formerly used has been sud- denly cut off with no alterna- tive provided. Now, we have to go to Medicine Hat or Calgary to drive." "The city provides swimming pools and skating rinks. Now they should supply an area for MRV." NOW'S THE TIM!
