Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta ATTENTION! INTER-CONTINENTAL PIPE BAND COMPETITIONS Watch For Our Special Excursion Par Information and reservation* contact: ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE WEST END Phono 328-3201 or 32S-8184 The Lethbridge Herald SECOND SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Thursday, June 10, 1971 PAGES 13 TO 24 h's a OREAT DAY to SERVE EVERYONE'S FAVORITE (Special Prices on Bulk Orders) ERICKSEN'S 2021 3rd Ave. S. Ph. 328-8161 1705 M.M. Drive Ph. 328-7751 MPC turns down TV tower The Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday refused an application by Cable-vision Lethbridge Ltd. to erect a television tower at 2907 2nd Ave. S., because it does not comply with zoning regulations. Until three weeks ago, the land was properly zoned, but the owners had it re zoned by council so they could build a bottling plant on the same parcel of land now proposed for the tower. The company will now have to apply to council to have part of the parcel rezoned again before it can erect the tower. Permission of the federal department of transport and the Canadian Radio - Television Commission must also be obtained before the proposed 530,000 structure can be built. The MPC also turned down two applications, one for a church and another for a motel, because adequate parking was not provided in the plans. An application by Lethbridge Meononite Brethren Church to build an addition to a church at 1509 29th St. S. was tabled because sufficient parking was not provided. Church representatives argued parking regulations should be relaxed in this case because the church would only be used two hours per week, but MPC members said the zoning bylaw must be adhered to in the matter of parking. The commission tabled the application, suggesting the church investigate the possibility of purchasing a portion of the back lane from the city to provide more parking space. A 46-unit motel proposed for 1025 Mayor Magrath Drive by Starmor Developments was rejected because adequate parking was not provided. The firm will probably redesign the project and submit new plans, a spokesman said at the meeting. The home occupations bylaw, which was tossed back to the MPC after council expressed disapproval of some changes proposed by the commission, was left on the table after some discussion. MPC members seemed unclear about what changes council wanted in the bylaw. DETOUR!

LETHBRIDGE in Europe next month is beginning to cause some concern to the man who has organized the whole affair. Knud Norbjerg, a teacher at St. Mary's School on the Blood Indian reserve has disclosed that only about $19,500 of the required $27,000 budget for the trip has been raised so far. The scheduled departure day for the trip is July 21 for the 40 students and their five sponsors. A plane has been chartered and is expected to leave from McCall Field in Calgary around 11 p.m. A public appeal for funds to make up the deficit has been launched and Mr. Norbjerg said service clubs throughout southern Alberta as well as the Blood and Peigan band councils and the Lethbridge Indian affairs branch will be contacted for donations.

The 45 students and teachers are raising $5,400 on their own account. Mr. Norbjerg said he is hopeful of obtaining $2,000 from the Blood council and $600 each from the Peigan council and Indian affairs in Lethbridge. The remainder must come from private and club sources. At any rate, he said, the trip is not in jeopardy. The worst that might happen is that the number of students to be taken may have to be cut down.

In Waterton National Park come supplement now $150, there have been instances in which the office has had trouble explaining that persons whose basic tax is less than that amount will not receive payment for the difference. The way the discount Is set up, taxes are split into basic tax (including education, hospital and planning and city taxes) and a services levy for maintenance and local improvements. The discount does not apply to the maintenance and local improvement portions. A pen- sioner receiving the supplement whose basic tax was only $115, for example, would have that amount discounted (except for $1) and would pay the maintenance and local improvement tax. He would not receive payment from the government (or the $35 difference between $150 and $115. The pensioner whose basic tax is more than $150 may apply for the full amount. He is responsible for the remainder and the local improvement and maintenance tax. Whoop-Up Days gets beer garden A beer garden is being planned as part of Whoop-Up Days at Lethbridge this year. The Municipal Planning Commission, by a 3 - 1 vote Wednesday, approved a beer garden on the exhibition grounds during the six - day exhibition. The city's acting engineering director, Irv Fraser, was the only dissenter. Beer gardens at exhibitions are legal under provincial legislation which came into effect Tuesday. The legislation also permits liquor and wine in beverage rooms, and wine and beer in pizza restaurants. The beer garden, to be located west of the grandstand, would have a seating capacity of 400. Entrance to the beer garden would be restricted to people 18 years and older. It would be run by the Lethbridge and District Exhibition Association. Approval of several city departments, including the fire department, is still required. A special events licence Is required to serve beer at exhibitions and rodeos. Food must be available with the beer. It would probably be eight weeks before beverage rooms will be serving liquor and wine. Beverage rooms must first give notice of application for a licence in a local newspaper for four weeks and then sit out a two  week waiting period to allow residents time to object. Other provincial a me n d-ments will allow private clubs to obtain beer and liquor licences without providing dining facilities.
