Mary Ann Androkovitch There is one very impor- tant part of my life which is the major cause of all my past, present, and future dreams and activities. My family and my friends consti- tute this part. My past was filled with many different phases. As a child, I dreamed of tomor- row by playing and imagin- ing. As I grew older, I be- came involved with the peo- ple and things around me. Having been raised on a farm, most of my activities were thusly related. I enter- ed in horse shows, and be- came a member in a 4-H dairy club for three years. I enjoyed swimming, cooking, and all the activities I took part in at school. My great- est dream was that of becom- ing a teacher. I wanted to help and teach others, as peo- ple were doing for me. Both my completion of one year of university and my present job have made me become aware of tomorrow. I look at the future from that point which would be best suited for me. My future plans are to continue work- ing, as I find my job both very interesting and challeng- ing. I plan to be married in the near future, and scmeday to raise a family, and try to offer them that which I have received. To become a teach- er and thereby fulfil my greatest dreams is one of my anticipated goals. My future goals are to achieve the hap- piness and fulfilment of life for myself and others in the best way possible. Jo Anne Christie Jo Anne was born in Card- ston Feb. 28, 1955.

Joyce Harctga Everyone lives with a dream to fulfill, and our minds are not satisfied until this goal is accomplished. I feel that a person's indivi- duality is expressed through such dreams. I've had dreams and a few of them came true, such as graduating from college and being able to play for the college badminton team So far, the one that has meant the most to me came true when I won the honor of Foremost Rodeo Queen in 1970. I especially enjoyed this. not only did I have the opportunity to meet and work with a great num- ber of people, but was able to exercise my interest in horses. Presently, I am a secretary at the University of Lethbridge, where the at- mosphere makes working conditions most enjoyable, and am a member of a de- partment store teen council where we promote the latest in fashion apparel. I think we are all influenc- ed by our environment and since I was brought up in the country, I feel that I would be able to have my completed if I could live there again. Mary Ann Johnston Hi, my name is Mary Anne Johnston. I came to Leth- bridge last summer from Manitoba. There I was ac- tive in extra activities such as 4-H sewing, ceramics, drama and cheerleading. I also enjoyed taking lessons in baton twirling and later in giving lessons myself. I like bike tiding, bowling and cooking new recipes also. As a young girl I had dreams of a glamorous car- eer such as modeling but as I arn only 4 feet 11 inches in height that ended that dream. After being a baby- sitter and later a theatre attendant, I took my course and am now a licensed beau- tician, a job I really enjoy and wouldn't want to give up. During my spare time I work as a fashion consultant. I find both jobs good for meet- ing new and interesting peo- ple. In future years I plan to continue in my present car- eer as a beautician and and maybe some day I'll own my own beauty salon. As long as I have good health and happiness my future will be worth looking forward to. No one ever reaches all their goals or fulfils all their dreams as every day a new wish enters your thoughts and gives you another goal to look forward to trying to achieve. Remember, "a dream is a wish that your heart makes.'' and wouldn't life be dull without them! Lois Knight The first thing that catches my thoughts is the word A dream to me is an almost elusive thought, one far away in the future. The followiing is a brief re- sume of my present and fu- ture plans. My life, right now. is caught up in a much varied mixture of activities. I enjoy water-skiing; horse -back riding: concocting unusual dinners and at this time in my life, working on wedding plans. It is a very exciting fact that four months ago, I didn't imagine that I would be get- ting married this summer, but that is what I call a dream which came true for me. In the future I plan to make a home for my husband and also keep up with my acti- vities of present. I have an avid interest in ceramics and pottery and would like to study these someday. In my job, I hope to do the best I can and advance as far as possible. As for my main goal in life; it's very simple. I hope that I can be the'best com- panion and wife a fellow could ever dream of. Ursula Piechowicz Life is a dream faced with many challenging goals which we all strive to achieve. School offers many chal- lenging opportunities and re- warding encounters. While attending school I was a cheerleader and the editor of the school newspaper, both of which occupied much of my free time. I was also a representative on the Stu- dents Council, member of the yearbook staff and on the graduation decorating com- mittee. Outside of school I was chosen to be on a de- partment store teen council. This job involved meeting many fascinating people, mo- delling, doing television com- mercials and part-time clerk- ing. I also enjoy bicycling and swimming, sewing and playing the piano. Future plans in life can always be rewarding if they are fulfilled. My future plans include attending Patric i a Stevens Career College and my anticipated goal in life is to become an airline hostess. I hope that the years to come will be as rewarding as the years that have passed. Valerie Ross To evaluate one's life in a literary fashion, tends to dis- tort the individuality and thoughts of a person. For even in this I can only ex- press one cf many thoughts w'iich envelop me. My name is Valerie Ross. I graduated from High School in 1972 and went on to begin a career as a stewardess. I currently am a legal steno- grapher and receptionist. In the future I hope to be reunit- ed in the field of aviation, travelling the world, eager to discover new people and places beyond my own front door. Awaiting this ambi- tion, I leisurely pursue hap- piness through simple out- door activities such as camp- ing and horseback riding. I hope that my life is ideal- istic and optimistic, but sim- ultaneously realistic. The goals I set for myself may differ from other people's goals. Yet, each of us, in our own unique way, will take hold of ourselves, decide what we want cut of life, then proceed to go after our desires. That's expensive salad Although it may not al- ways be apparent to the con- sumer, stores buying goods in large quantities do get a cheaper unit price. The evidence surfaced in one small independent gro- cery store this week when the owner checked his in- voice from MacD o n a Ids Consolidated for a small shipment of lettuce. The bill read 12 heads of lettuce for and translated into more than 73 cents a pound wholesale. In consum- er terms, that's about GO cents a pound. Down the black, at one of the supermarkets, lettuce purchased in volume was selling for 49 cents a pound. Thieves get watches from saddle club New vacation town, ski resort growth planned for Rockies Several stop watches and a 100 foot tape were stolen during a break in at the Fort Whoop-Up Saddle'Club. The value of the stolen goods was set at The break in was report- ed to police last night but could have occurred either Monday or Tuesday. Entry was gained by tear- ing the front door off the binges. By DAVID BLY Herald Staff Writer A proposal to expand and Improve present facilities at the West Castle ski resort and a planned recreation community b o r d e r ing the Crowsnest Forest Reserve were explained to the Alber- ta Environment Conservation Authority in Lethbridge Thursday. The presentation of the two commercial proposals wrap- ped up the Lethbridge phase of the hearings being con- ducted on land use and re- source development of the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains. Further hearings will be conducted next week in Calgary and Canmore. Dan McKim, general man- ager of Castle Mountain Re- sort Ltd., developer of the area, explained to the EGA that his company proposes to develop West Castle, which is located within the CrOwsnest Forest Reserve, as a year- round recreation area and to upgrade ski facilities to accommodate the skiing ev- ents of the 1975 Canada Win- ter Games. Mr. McKim stated that Southern Alberta needs sucli a year-round facility for the residents of the area. In the national parks, he said. Southern Albertans are just more visitors. West Castle they can call their own, he said. Under the proposed devel- opment schedule presented by Mr. McKim, the company would build an additional ski lift, a day lodge, chalets and "iltTWfW" nt j tZZXl Ukf O 1974. In the summer of 1975 they plan to install more ski lifts, implement a con- dominium development and construct a heated swimming pool and asphalt tennis courts. Some of the work car- ried out in 1976 would include another ski Ifit and a small golf course. During the past year, Mr. McKim explained, the com- pany came within of breaking even, the best year they have had in their sev- eral years of existence. He said that certain concessions from the provincial govern- ment were essential to the viability of the company. Among these concessions would be the privilege to sub- lease land for chalet and con- dominium construction which would in turn enable the firm to finance additional ski lift construction. They are also requesting leasing of addi- tional lands for more ski slopes. They will also request that the provincial govern- ment provide commercial utilities, that is, electrical power, telephone service and natural gas. Follow ing Mr. McKim's presentation, opposition to and doubt about the develop- ment was expressed by a number of people. Leo Kyllo of the Western Conservation Foundation sug- gested that the proposal be scrutinized and that perma- nent private accommodation in the area be prohibited. Construction of roads and utilities should only come after a public hearing, he said. Bill Sharp of the University of Lethbridge department of biology expressed concern for the university's field biol- ogy station which is located a mile downstream from the resort. Mr. McKim told the biology professor that care would be taken to insure that the stream, Beavermines Creek, would not be polluted. Other persons, including residents of the Beavermines area and Lethbridge, ex- pressed concern for the num- ber of trees that would have to be cut for expansion, the effect on the watershed and the fact that the company wanted public money to as- sist with the proposed expan- sions and improvements A planned resort commu- nity on about acres of privately owned land along Beavermines Creek was ex- plained by Max Gibb, repre- sentative of White Spruce Lands Co. Ltd. Mr. Gibb said the commu- nity would consist of about 200 vacation homes with much of the land set aside to be left in a natural state. Mr. Gibb said the White Spruce development would allow people tto return to the land and live in suitable buildings at a reasonable price. It would also protect valuable natural areas, he Adam Campbell, represent- ing landowners and ranchers from the areas bordering the development, said he and the other people of the area op- posed the planned commu- nity, and termed White Spruce "unwarranted devel- opment." He said the scheme would bring problems to the area and would be destruc- tive to the natural environ- ment. Mrs Jean Sheppard of the Beavermines area said of the objective of the development: "I suggest you're not getting away from the urban en- vironment, but are bring- ing urban problems to the area." In responding to these and other criticisms, Mr. Gibb ad- mitted that plans for the de- velopment were indefinite and far from complete. He said his firm was working with Oldman River Regional Planning Commission to see how the community could conform to existing regula- tions and statutes. Ted Nicholson of the plan- ning commission said the commission has not approved or indicated approval of -the proposal. "We have adopted a stance of cautious he said, adding that further in- formation and a definite pro- posal from the developers were needed before the com- mission could render a deci- sion. 3 FOR MACLEOD RCMP centennial projects okayed By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer The Alberta-RCMP Cen- tury Celebrations committee has approved five centennial project submissions from the Southern Alberta area.

The committee's cost-shar- ing grants cover a maximum of 50 per cent of the total cost of ths project to a maxi- inuni of Project submissions from Southern Alberta have sur- passed the committee's ex- pectations, the co-ordinator of the Alberta-RCMP Century Celebrations committee said Thursday. Dr. T. MacCallum Walker, in Lethbridge to hear seven more project submissions, says there have been few submissions made from Southern Alberta rural areas, but he has had preliminary te'ephone conversations with several organizations and ex- pects their projects will soon be officially presented to the committee. The committee originally established September 15 as the deadline for submissions, but Dr. Walker expects the deadline will be extended to December. Police seeking accused robbers An armed robbery trial opened in Lethbridge district court Thursday morning minus two very important elements in the cass two of the three defendants. Warrants were issued for Samuel Wayne Teague, 22, of Vancouver, and Michael Pal- rick O'Neil, 21, of Lethbridge. Beth have been out on bail since eaiiy February. Charles Dennis A very, 27, of Taber, the third man charged in the Feb. 5 armed robbery of a Hardieville man, was sitting in the prisoners' dock at the appointed time and the trial proceeded with his case. Avery has been an inmate at Spy Hill Correctional In- stitute, near Calgary, serving one year for breaking into a private home in Calgary last August. If and when Teague and O'Neil are caught, another trial will be held. Court was told Thursday that on the evening of Feb. 5, Teague, O'Neil, and Avery robbed Lory Edward Ken- nedy of cash, at the point of a 12-gauge shotgun. Mr. Kennedy testified that he had driven out into the country, several miles south of Kenyon Field, with the three men to purchase three pounds of hashish. When the car, owned and drivan by Avery, stopped, Kennedy got out expecting that the three men would dig up the hashish. When he turned around, O'Neil was about four feet away, standing with a shot- gun pointed, at Kennedy. O'Neil asked for the earmarked for the drug pur- chase and, after all but a bill still in Kennedy's jacket changed hands, they drove away, leaving him in the evidence indicated. Kennedy, according to his evidence, then hitch hiked into Lethbridge. trying to de- cide if he should call the po- lice and report the thefc. He finally did call the RCMP, telling them the mon- ey was to have been used to buy an old bus. O'Neil, and Avery were arrested a short time later in Taber. Mr. Kennedy told the court that he was acting only as a middleman in the transac- tion, as the money was put up by two University of Leth- bridge students. Roy Endo, of Taber. testi- fied Thursday that Teague and Avery came to his house about p.m. Feb. 5 and asked him to keep a 12-gauge shotgun, later identified as the weapon used in the rob- bery. Th'2 two men then ask- ed if Mr. Endo would follow them into Calgary, and gave him when he complied with their request. On their way out of Taber, Teague and Avery were stop- ped by Taber police and de- tained. O'Neil was arrested that same night, registered under a false name in the Royal Hotel. The trial If expected to conclude today.
