Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, June 17, 1974 2 school trustees will run again, others haven't decided By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer On a long hot June day. the thought of spending another three-year term on a school board isn't exactly sitting front and centre in the minds of most Lethbridge incumbents. In fact, most of the separate and public- school trustees contacted by The Herald will be using the hot Southern Alberta summer months to make up their minds whether they will run for office again in the Oct. 16 school board elections. Only separate school board chairman John Boras and public school trustee Doug McPherson are certain they will be seeking another three-year term. Public trustee Doug Card said it was "quite likely" he would run again but doesn't intend to make a final decision on the matter until fall. The other trustees contacted gave reasons varying from "it's (the election) a long way away" to "I am not sure that I have had very much success with my efforts" for not being certain that they wanted to serve another term as trustees" of the Lethbridge schools. Although there are rumors of a number of people considering running this fall, no one to date has officially announced their candidacy. There will be at least one vacancy on the public school board to be filled as a result of Al Mont's resignation in May. Mr. Boras is going to seek office again because he "enjoys trusteeship" and feels he now has the experience to direct trusteeship the way "it should be directed." "It takes time to get familar with the operation" of a school board, he suggested. Dr. McPherson wants to see through some of the projects the present board has initiated and is looking forward to the challenge oi another three years. Mr. Card believes trusteeship is a responsibility "we should all take turns at" and school boards should be run by the "common ordinary guy in the neighborhood." He has already spent 10 years on the public board but doesn't feel he will call it quits this fall because the board has "quite a few things going for it" that he would like to see completed. His pet project, educational television in schools, is "right at the stage where we will have to have nose to nose discussions with the government" and he says he would like to be part of the discussions "as long as I feel young." Separate school trustees Frank Peta and Paul Matisz haven't decided whether to attempt to seek office for another three years and only offered "it's a long way away" as a reason for their lack of decisiveness. Mr. Peta has served three years and Mr. Matisz 19 years. Another separate school trustee, Ron Fabbi said he would have to evaluate the three years he has spent as a trustee and also give consideration to what "I am going to do at the office" during the next three years. Dr. Fabbi, an optometrist, said he thought a trustee would be more involved in the philosophy of education than they are when he ran for office three years ago. Trustees spend most of their time "just deciding where the pennies will he now realizes. Separate school trustee Steve Vaselenak wants to wait "and see how 1 teel" this tall because "three years is a long time" to plan ahead. Mr. Vaselenak, a retired teacher, is completing his third year of service. Public school trustee Reg Turner's reasons for serving on the school board were to serve students and teachers by improving educational objectives and promoting an improved classroom environment and help develop a public school education that is "carried out in a pleasant atmosphere in which students and teachers feel that their efforts are well rewarded by the results they achieve." He doesn't know if he has had much success in obtaining his objectives and as a result doesn't know if he will run for school board again. Most trustees agreed that it would be a much healthier situation for local education if the public showed more interest in the election of their school board representatives. A few trustees felt more competition during the fall election would be good for education because it would bring different views on education to the forefront and likely create more public interest. "I am a little Mr. Boras said, "that we don't have the interest we should have. We tend to let things drift in the direction that public apathy lets it go." "There are many people who can do the job and patents and volunteer groups should seek out these people so the strongest individual is elected to office." Mr. Vaselenak said he would like to see more people running for a position on the school board because he "doesn't like to see" people elected by acclamation. Mr. Card hopes "there is more interest" in the school board elections than last time because a good campaign brings out "good points." Dr. Fabbi was one trustee who doesn't "like to see" political type campaigning in school board elections. He feels "word by mouth" is the most effective method of electing trustees. Public school chairman Dorothy Beckel and public school trustees Bill Brown and Carl Johnson were unavailable for comment. continues at plants. Local meat supply holding up well Lethbridge consumers should be able to continue buying most cuts of meat if labor-management disputes don't close any more packing plants, a Herald survey ot Lethbridge retail meat managers shows. Fred Seaman, butcher at Value Village, said Saturday the supply ot some Swifts and Burns products is short, and he has no wieners at all. But he is getting supplied from Canadian Dressed .Meats in Lethbridge. Gainer's in Calgary, and intercontinental Packers in Saskatoon. Sask. "If Intercontinental and COM here closed up. we'd really be in a bind." said Mr. Seaman. There are many small, independent meat packing companies in Calgary, he said, but the meat situation could tighten in the next week. L u d vv i g Stein, meat manager of the downtown Safeway: said there was no problem in the foreseeable future unless all packing plants were locked out. Some pork has been brought in from the United States, and there is no problem with supplies of fresh meat. Some packaged products from locked-out firms are running short, he says. Jim S m 11 h s o n, meat manager of the Westminster Safeway, says the only supply problem is with packaged products from the locked-out companies, and the effect on prices should not be too great.
