Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, June 6, 1974 How much of that provincial schools Lethbndge schools will make an attempt to cash in on the several million dollars designated in May by the province for the upgrading of old school buildings, before the Sept. 30 deadline But public and separate school administrators said Wednesday they are still uncertain how the qualification restrictions placed on the school upgrading fund by the department of education will affect the upgrading needs of local school buildings. It was just last January that public school administrators said their 1974 budget did not provide the funds needed to restore the older school buildings which haven't been upgraded since first constructed. Mack Crumley, secretary treasurer, said Wednesday the public schools are now "better off" than they were when the budget was announced in January because of the special fund set by the province, but "how much better off, I don't know." Mr. Crumley said there are several schools in the public system that need upgrading but just which schools will qualify for assistance under the fund and what proportion of the upgrading will be covered by the government fund is not known at this time. Ralph Himsl, superintendent of separate schools, believes the fund will be of limited benefit to the local separate schools because only the St. Basil's School is over 20 years old. However, the separate school board has been attempting to obtain funds for renovations to the Assumption School and Mr. Himsl said Wednesday the school may qual- ify tor assistance under the special upgrading fund. The separate schools are now in the process of investigating how applicable the upgrading fund is to the needs of their school buildings. The department of education has established seven categories within the qual- ification structure of its upgrading fund and schools may apply for assistance under any or all categories. Structural (roof, mechanical (plumbing and electrical, code requirements (as set out by fire commission and public health conversion (for example: converting heating system from oil will be ours, officials ask to natural general upgrading and special projects are the categories established by the department. The seventh category, special projects, provides funds for the conversion of existing commercial or private buildings to school uses or for the complete updating of an existing older school. The Galbraith School is the only Lethbridge school that may qualify for funding under the special project category because it meets the most important requirement that of being constructed 50 years or more ago. The other categories have their restrictions too. To qualify for full assistance under the mechanical category the school must be at least 35 years old and at least 20 years old if it is in need of structural upgrading. In addition, the province will only pay from 50 to 80 per cent of the total tost of the upgrading of each school which can be reduced directly with the age of the school if it does not meet the age limit set for each category. What it all means is that Lethbridge schools will have a difficult task determining the amount of assistance they may qualify for. When introducing the legislation to provide the upgrading fund to schools, Education Minister Lou Hyndman said the fund is aimed at obtaining fuller use of existing school structures. Pesticide hearing set here Oct. 2 A public sounding board to view all aspects of the use of pesticides and herbicides is how Alberta Environment Conservation Authority officials describe a series of public hearings set for the fall. Doug Patching, research officer for the authority, met 30 farmers, researchers, department of agriculture officials, biologists and wildlife officials in Lethbridge Wednesday. He said the public hearings will determine the path legislators will take in dealing with the future use of the chemicals Because agricultural use accounted for 74 per cent of all herbicides and pesticides used in Canada last year, the authority hopes farmers and ranchers will come out in full force to defend the use of the chemicals and to recommend changes to better the product. Mr. Patching said the hearings will let government determine -what pesticides and herbicides are, whom they will affect and how The authority is a neutral body which will hear the views of the public at 14 CORNING WARE TWIN Includes: oz.

Wally McMitcheil and cart Holy parking ticket! the meter man has wheels An experiment now being tried by city police may mean more parking tickets and less commissionaires. Sgt. Maj Wally McMitcheil, one of the commissionaires hired by the city to hand out parking violations, has been using a Cushman cart since Friday and City Police 'Traffic Insp. Bill West thinks motorizing the meter man is "definitely worth it." It usually takes about two hours to cover a route, Insp. West says, but with the cart, the time can be cut to 20 minutes. If the experiment is successful, Insp. West says the city may be able to reduce the number of commissionaires hired to ticket over-parked vehicles. The city now employs four meter men. although they are paid from the police department budget. Peter Bowkett, city traffic co-ordinator, says a commissionaire on foot has difficulty covering the 15- minute parking zones and isolated meters outside the downtown area. "Meters are practically useless if they're not enforced." he says. Insp. West says the police department has not budgeted for the cart this year and whether or not one will be purchased in this fiscal year depends on City Manager Allister Findlay. A report evaluating the experiment will be given to Mr. Findlay in two weeks, Insp. West said, and it will be up to him to decide whether or not city council will be asked to app'rove purchase of the cart in this budget year. The cart is now on loan from the company.

Mr. Davis says he wants a voice in caucus to protest lack of funding for the Lethbridge Northern Irrigation District. "I think there should be a lot more money put into irrigation systems in the he says "The Lethbridge Northern system is badly neglected. It's not getting its fair allocation of funds compared to other districts." Premier Peter Lougheed, who will attend the nomination, will hear from Mr. Davis that water storage in the Oldman River Basin must be accelerated. He is also concerned that land owners have not been allowed a sufficient voice in land-use policies now being formulated by the government. Mr. Davis is a native of the Coalhurst area. "Southern Alberta needs a PC representative south of says Dr. Walker "Sometimes we're a little forgotten. There is no government member south of that city. "We should get a voice into Edmonton that will be heard loud and clear representing the South."
