Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta i' A L 1 I RD Bows Out SPARWOOD (HNS) The RD1SK will wind up its administration of the urban renewal project here at the end of the year. The KDEK board recently passed a motion that its partners in the scheme, the federal and provincial governments, bo notified that it will attempt to complete the scheme by the end of ths year, but will no longer administer it. This is the RDEK plan, even if relocation of residents of Natal to Spanvood is not completed. If the relocation is not complete, and if no other agency takes over those left in the old area will just bs left where they are, as far as the KDEK is concerned. It will have spent three years on the project. Councillor Tabor of Spar-wood opposed this step, voting against tlie motion. EVICTION'S The matter came up when the board's administrator, Frank Bertoia, reported that 41 eviction notices had been prepared for service during June to residents of Natal. The residents are living in houses that have been bought by the RDEK. They ara paying a nominal rental fee until suitable accommodat ion is available in Sparwood, according to the terms of reference of the project.

Director George Fedo r e k said he felt a letter should be sent to the District of Spar-wood and have it explained hat our administrator should wt havs to take public abuse Tom a councillor who obviously doesn't understand the UP CROW Whatever possessed a crow, one of the most intelligent of the avion species, to build its nest on this telephone pole is one of the oddities of nature. With a grove of trees only several hundred yards away, the bird preferred the monotonous hum of telephone wires, a railroad track on one sida and a highway on the other, midway between Woodhouse and Claresholm. The nest was a spectacle to passers-by for eight days before it was removed by the telephone maintenance department.
