Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, June 19, 1974 Distiller Robin Kernick of London 'Local industry shouldn't be dependent on grants9 Industrial projects should not be depen- dent on government grants, the managing director of a inulti national distilling company told The Herald Tuesday. Robin Kernick of International Distillers and Vintners Ltd., London. Eng.. which officially opens its Lethbridge distillery today, said in an interview any grant is helpful in building a plant. But if a company is working properly, projects should not be dependent on grants. "I don't think it's very he said. When International was deciding where to build Palliser Distillers Ltd., it received considerable encouragement from the City of Lethbridge and the provincial government but no department of regional economic expansion (DREE) grant, he said. Lethbridge was chosen because it was in Western Canada and had plentiful supplies of grain and pure water. A site east of the Rocky Mountains was desired for ease of communication. International Distillers and Vintners has worldwide interests in the liquor and wine industries, said Mr. Kernick. As well as Palliser Distillers, its Canadian interests include Gilbey's gin. Palliser is independently operated, he said. Canadian distillation capacity will have to be expanded as the business grows, but there are no plans to purchase any other Canadian distilleries, he said. Nor does the parent firm have any inten- tion of buying Canadian wineries. Canada produces some "very drinkable" wines, he said, but not in large quantities and some Canadian concerns import grape juice from the United States to make wine. Canada's climate and soil conditions are wrong for wine, he said. Even in the wine valleys of California, frost protection equipment is necessary, which increases production costs. A wine crop can be killed by one night's frost when the vines are flowering. The wines for which Palliser is Canadian agent, Montellorca and LaCour Pavilion, are grown in International's own vineyards, he said. The company owns vineyards in Spain, Portugal, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France and Italy. The vertical ownership of taverns or "the tie" as it's known in Britain is overemphasized, and is not allowed in Canada and the United States, said Mr. Kernick.11nternational Distillers actually sells more to its competitors than to its sister companies, he said. He would not comment on Canadian li- quor licensing or regulation. He said the Canadian system was "so political" that as a visitor he shouldn't comment on it. But it seems to work better than most of the other places where there are state li- quor monopolies, he said. The science of distilling is imprecise, so the best liquor still comes out of the old style copper pot still, he said. No one knows why this is so, but two identical distilleries using the same grain and built directly across the same Scottish stream from each other produced two different whiskies. Even their chemical formulas wpn> the same. CDM work dispute to conciliation Conciliation will start at the end of the week in an effort to reach a contract between Canadian Dressed Meats (Lethbridge) Ltd. and the Canadian Food and Allied Workers, the company's manager said Tuesday. Archie Murphy told The Herald there are some differences between the issues at CDM. an independently- operated subsidiary of Burns Foods Ltd.. and those at the three major meat packing companies which have locked out their employees in Alber- ta. He would not comment further. Bert Heerze. president of Local 740 of the CFAW. said the only difference was whether or not CDM should be involved in the national master agreement. "We are interested in everybody belonging to the master contract to increase bargaining he said. As part of the Burns operation, the company should be in the Burns agreement, said Mr. Heerze. No word has been received from the Winnipeg meeting considering the latest offer by Burns. Canada Packers Ltd. and Swift Canadian Co. Ltd. FOREMOST BICYCLIST KILLED CRASH A 17-year-old Foremost youth died Tuesday from injuries received in a collision between a 10-speed bike and an automobile one quarter mile south of Foremost on Highway 61. Richard Thompson was travelling south when his bike was in collision with a southbound car driven by Luella Cowie. 47. of Foremost. The accident occurred at p.m. It is still under investigation. There has been no decision regarding an inquest. Mr. Thompson was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital. Foremost is about 70 miles east of Lethbridge. Principals appointed Two Lethbridge assistant principals have been named to fill two of the principal vacan- cies in the public school system.

FVR STORAGE TIME j FREE SPEEDY PICK-UP RESTYLING RELINING REPAIRING CLEANING AND GLAZING The LETHBRIDGE FURRIERS 514 3rd AVENUE SOUTH Phone 327-2209 Coalhurst, Nobleford schools to expand By WARREN CARAGATA Herald Staff Writer A major building program for two Lethbridge County schools has received preliminary approval from the provincial government. The county school com- mittee learned as its meeting Tuesday the school buildings board has authorized the coun- ty to hire an architect to prepare sketch plans for renovations and additions to the Coalhurst High School, in Coalhurst, and Noble Central School, in Nobleford. Coun. Jim Nicol, school committee chairman, said at the meeting expansion of the two schools should be com- pleted by September, 1975. The board accepted statements of need from the county for the expansion, but before tenders can be called, sketch plans must be sub- mitted for approval. Chick Burge, county school superintendent, said later he has no idea when tenders could be called and said cost of the building program will not be known until the architect has completed preliminary plans. When the expansion to the Coalhurst High School is com- plete, it wil! have a capacity of 425 students and will ac- commodate all grades. However, this capacity includes one portable classroom. Coun. Nicol said he is happy the board has recognized the need for more school space in Coalhurst. saying there isn't enough room at both schools now for present enrolment. The board will contribute Relief brings indecent charge A 35 year old Lethbridge man pleaded not guilty in provincial court Tuesday to a charge of indecent exposure. Robert Ronald Andrew. 1243 8th Ave. A S.. was charged late Monday after a man relieved himself on a street outside the Garden Hotel, 510 3rd Ave. S. Andrew was remanded until July 23 for trial. A 27 year old Grande Prairie man was sentenced in provincial court Monday to four months in jail after he pleaded guilty to making worth of phone calls and charging them to his employer's number. Court was told Harry Beaverbone made the calls from the Grande Prairie area between last Dec. 31 and Jan. 28 He was arrested in Lethbridge following a routine highway check. Rus route extended to Henderson Bus route No. 2 will be switched to its summer route, fxtcnding service to the Japanese Gardens and Henderson Park, starting Sun- day. Until Sept. 3 the No. 2 bus will follow its present route to Mayor Magrath Drive and 6th Avenue S.. will then go south on Mayor Magrath to South Parksidc Drive, east on South Parkside to 281h Street S.. north on 2fith Street to 6th Avenue S. and east on 6th Avenue S. back 1o the regular route for renovations at Coalhurst, which will create a lunch room and an early childhood education classroom out of the present gymnasium. The 13.000 square-foot addi- tion to the high school includes five new classrooms, a science classroom, a large gymnasium and counselling and staff offices. The Nobleford school will get a 7.000 square-foot addi- tion for a new gymnasium. The present gym will be remodelled to provide a lunch room and an ECS classroom. The board will contribute for renovations at No- ble Central. The school committee will try and get two portables for the Coalhurst schools until ex- pansion is complete, but Mr. Burge warned there might be difficulty finding them. "There's a shortage of por- table he said. The county will move to ac- quire five acres of land west of Coalhurst High School for grounds and a building site. Trustees decided Tuesday to set up a subcommittee to determine what county schools are eligible for renovations under the provin- cial government's school restoration program. Under the program, announced recently, grants are available for major structural repair to existing schools. Mr. Burge said the subcom- mittee will give its recommendations to the next regular meeting in July. He told trustees the county will receive about an- nually under a new grant program to assist school dis- tricts to keep small schools open. County schools at Turin, Huntsville and the Hutterite school qualify for grants. Wrong voting lists sent to some voters City voters who receive the wrong preliminary voting lists for the July 8 federal election should contact the returning officer for Lethbridge elec- toral district immediately. The deadline for voters to insure they have been enumerated is Friday. An un- determined number of voters will receive incomplete lists or lists for the wrong polling division, according to the returning officer. The mix-up stems from problems in stuffing envelopes at the printers. "We don't know how many errors there are but some can be ex- pected in a rush job like this." a spokesman for the returning office said today. The office has received a number of complaints from voters so far. A phone call to the returning office at 328-0552 or 328-0653 will insure a list gets to the voter before the deadline or the office will tell the voter if he is on the list. If a voter has been missed bv the enumerators, the returning office will inform him where to appear and when for a court of revision. Friday is absolutely the last day an urban voter can guarantee his right to vote as he cannot be sworn in at the poll on election day or at an advance poll.
