Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta -Ttiumlay, 8, 7972 THE ItTHSRIDGE HERA1D _ Friday and Saturday M ____June 9 and 10 r LAWNMOWER AND SHOWDOWN OLDTIME Mr. and Mrs. Winslow Sommerfelt of Lethbridge wear olcftime costumes at fort Macleod's recent balf. They arrived too lote for the judging but were a great attraction, Swihart Photo Premier visits Sparwood briefly SPARWOOD (HNS) Pre- mier 'W. A. C. Bennelt visited Spanvood for nbout 30 minutes last Sunday, accompanied by 10 of his ministers. Urban project ending SPARWOOD (HNS) The Spanvood urban renewal pro- ject Is gradually grinding to halt. Frank Berlola, administrator of the Regional District of East Kootenay, which is handling the project, said he has recently ne- gotiated for a number of prop- erties. He told the RDEK board at its May meeting that he had settled four in the past few weeks and had three more in the works. Eviction notices are being prepared for the rest, he said. Just over 30 owners have not yet settled. The skating rink, which has been used until this spring by the District of Spai-wood, will be demolished by July 31 of this year. That will leave only the curl- ing rink, which the urban re- newal committee has agreed to lease to Sparwood until April 30, 1974 on condition that Sparwood then either buy the building, move it or clear the property to the committee's standards. The RDEK board approved a request by the Village of Elk- ford to be excluded from the relocation scheme. The village was incorporated less than a year ago and the RDEK agreed that Elkford should not have to bear any of the costs of the project. It will also recommend that the northern part of Electoral Area "A1: from Brule Creek north, be excluded from par- ticipation. Mayor Louis Ungaro of Spanvood voted against the latter resolution. The premier was greeted by Spanvood mayor Louis Ungaro and members of council and their wives. After signing the guest book the premier and his party toured the Civic Centre. Mayor Ungaro invited the small crowd on hand to meet the premier in the courtroom, where Mr. Bennelt presented Mayor Ungaro and his wife with gills. The mayor received a set of cuff links engraved with the emblem of British Co- lumbia. Mayor Ungaro present- ed the premier with a set of cuff links bearing the emblem of the District of Spanvood. Premier Bennelt presented the mayor of the Village of Elkford, Horace Keyes, a similar gift of cuff links. In his address Mr. Bennett said this was his first visit to Spanvood. New communities have problems of growth, not decay, and Spanvood has a great future, Mr. Bennett said. Mr. Keyes invited the pre- mier to visit Ms community. Mayor Koyes raised the mat- ter of a new hospital for the Elkford area. He spoke of the length of the winter in area and the distance from Fording to Fernie over treacherous winter roads in the winter. The premier replied: "You need something for emergen- cies. We have had a team up here checking." The government stated sev- eral years ago that (he hospital at Michel would be phased out and the residents of the Spar- wood-Elk Valley area would be served by a new hospital at Fernie. However the Michel- Natal Hospital Board, residents of the community and industry have made it clear to the gov- ernment that they want a hos- pital in Michel. A re-survey of the hospital situation was done a few weeks ago. However, no announce- mhit has been made to date of the outcome. The premier and his party left Spanvood for a drive to Crowsnest and a look at the Michel Hospital. B.C. seeks to improve area ambulance service SPARWOOD (HNS) The possibility of provincial aid to finance regional ambulance service has been voiced by B.C. Health Minister Ralph Loff- mark. In a letter to regional hospi- tal districts in May, Mr. Loff- mark pointed out there is now a provincial subsidy of per capita to municipalities, which provide ambulance service. "It is possible that this could form the basis for financial support for a regional ambulance sys- tem" the letter said. However, Mr. Loffmark also said he would have to be as- sured of "a reasonable stan- dard of service being offered" and asked boards for their rec- ommendations in three areas. In some parts of the prov- ince, Mr. Loffmark said the quality of service "leaves much lo be desired." Many ambu- lances are ill-equipped and their attendants inadequately- trained, he charged. In soro; unorganized areas, there is no ambulance service or there is confusion as to which municipal service is to be called the leUer says. Many times the cost of the service is a "real financial burden" to people who need it. Provision of regional ambu lance service, he said, could be "a method of resolving aL three of these problems." The East Kootenay Regional Hospital District board felt none of the problems outlined by Mr. Loffmark exist in its area but was pleased with the proposal. Earlier this year, the board supported a resolution to the provincial government support- ing a claim for the per capi- ta grant for regional districts that support ambulanco ser- vices. 6 WEB LAWN CHAIR 5.97 4 WEB LAWN CHAIR 8 FT. x 7 FT.
