Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHDRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Juno 27, 1970 j You Ask Me.. EARLY, EARLY TOMATOES The garden of Nelson Sullivan, 133 14th St. S. is about a month ahead in yield- ing lush tomatoes. Mr. Sullivan has been enjoying Ihe home-grown fruit for the past week. He credits the early production not so much to green-thumb skill but as another evidence that Lethbridge "is the sunshine Jury Rules No Blame A six-man inquest jury in Cardston attached no blame Friday to the May 10 death of Grace Heavy Kunner, 35, of the Blood Indian Reserve. Witnesses indicated Mrs. Tax Payment Is Lagging Total tax collections at city hall are lagging about 13 per cent behind last year. Figures for the week ending j June 25 show about collected so far this year, com- pared with about last year. Payments this week came to up from last year's total. The deadline for penalty-free payments is June 30. One per cent per month is added to late payments. Heavy Runner, wife of Lester Heavy Runner, had repeatedly fallen during what was believed to be a heavy drinking session in Cardston. Coroner Dr. Roy Spademan of Cardston indicated the wom- an had died of head injuries and brain hemorrhage. RED CROSS REP Barrie Robb of High River is the volunteer representative of Claresholm, High River, Nan- ton and Turner Valley for the Alberta-Northwest Territories division of the Canadian Red Cross Society. SHOE REPAIRS BEST FAST if CHEAP SHOE HOSPITAL 331 llth Street South Conciliation In Wage Talks Witli Police The board of industrial rela- tions has appointed .1. B. Adams of Edmonton as concili- ation commissioner in the wage dispute between the Lethbridge Police Association and the police commission board. No date has been set for con- ciliation talks. The association, representing 51 members, is the last group to settle with the city on 1970 wages. Jim Wilson SUMMER'S HERE and with the summer come tourists, campers and picnickers, at- tempting to escape the dirt and the turmoil of the city for some peace, quiet and fresh air wherever they can find it. Most hopeefully the vast majority are clean and considerate, hut unfortunately a few garbage- minded nitwits will wander around the countryside trying to make everywhere else as dirty as their back yards. If the rest of us want to enjoy what little of na- ture there is that's left for us to enjoy, it's up to us to pick up after our thimble-brained fellow humans. Of course, there are other things we can do, too We can make the government try to enforce the "no littering" rules so proudly displayed on high- way signs throughout the province and perhaps increase the fine to or We can try to convince the government, it should ban non-returnable bottles and beer and pop in cans. We can embarrass the devil out of people we see littering our world, by asking them in a loud voice to clean up our living room. But we're going to have to call attention to ourselves on a grand scale if we want to get some- thing as motionless as the government to do any- thing at all, and we're going to have to pick stuff up anyhow, including the last half-century of polluter- droppings. We can accomplish both tasks at once if groups such as the Alberta Wilderness Association and Pol- lution Control Southern Alberta will work together to sponsor a clean-up day. It could be modelled along the lines of the walka- thon: a highway could be cleaned up, starting at some given point and money pledges could be made in terms of the total mileage cleaned up by the entire group of volunteers working together. Proceeds could go toward financing a lobby with the provincial government and to media advertising by the AWA and PS-SA aimed at the government the drink manufacturers and the litterers. It needn't be only one day, either: how about several times during the warm summer months? Parks and campgrounds could be similarly tackled; so could rivers. I'm sure the department of highways could be gently coerced into supplying tracks for the refuse. And visualize a picture of guck and worse picked up along a 10-mile stretch of highway printed in every paper in Alberta. Or a pile of thrown-away newspapers shown on every television station? I wonder where the department of highways would dump the mess? Gvic Holiday On August 3 Grass Fire The Lethbridge fire depart- ment was called Friday after- noon to extinguish a grass fire at the site of the city's new sanitary land fill. The fire apparently burned up from the garbage in the cou- lee bottom and began to spread east across the prairie. No damage to property occurred.

TRENT LOW, RAPLH NERATKO, RALPH PLAITED HAIR WORK IN 'GREENHOUSE Sunrise Ranch Near Coaldale Provides Active Training Centre iy MARGARET LUCKHURST Herald Staff Writer For three young adults, who arc former pupils of the Doro- hy Gooder School for the Men- ally Retarded, the greenhouse t the Sunrise Ranch Coaldale s a great place to work. Under the supervision of Dave Ulan, manager of the green- ouse, the three young men are re first trainees in a long- ange program sponsored by ic Lethbridge Association for the Mentally Retarded, to help dult retardates achieve an op- mum of self-sufficiency. "The greenhouse is the result an objective set by the Asso- lation several years Mr. llan said, "it was felt that dult retardates are often neg- ated in our society, whereas tany of them can be trained i do routine tasks, thereby laintaining their dignity as ell as earning a small living )r themselves." With this-in mind, and with- ut government assistance, the ssociation was eventually able purchase land and develop greenhouse through public upport of Flowers of Hope an- lal campaigns and private inations from interested indi- duals. "We have just completed the rst winter and spring of oper- Mr. Allan said. "Dur- g the winter we had a little ouble with the heating system the greenhouse and the fur- aces balked one cold night, his damaged some of the to- ato plants, which, up until ien, had been a good crop. However, we made up for this loss with our bedding plants. This spring we grossed over from the sale of thr- plants, which we felt was quite successful." SPRING RUSH There was a great rush dur- ing the spring season and the greenhouse staff would not have been able to handle all the sales had not volunteers from the association and residents from Coaldale helped them out. "We have nine acres of land Mr. Allan said, "and the SUBWAY CONCRETE PRODUCTS CONCRETE PRODUCTS SEPTIC TANKS, etc. 128 North Mayor Magralh Dr. Phone 328-2298 For Summer Fun MAVERICK Per Month The First Car of The 70s at 69 Prices. 6th AVENUE STREET, 19tfi STRUT I AVENUE, UTKKiDCE, AL1IXTA r three boys along with my assistant Gerry Brown, a student of Lethbridge Community College, are preparing the ground for landscaping. We have also chased a tractor and a disc I which will help us prepare the ground for a variety nursery trees and bushes, as well as a large vegetable crop which we hope to put in next year. The vegetable crop will provide sup-" plies for the Oliver House residence and also the new one they r will presently build. In this 3 way, the program helps defray some of the initial expenses of the cost of living." GIRLS' PROGRAM Eventually it is hoped that girls will be integrated into the program. "We are learning as we go Mr. Allan said. "This operation is different from the usual "sheltered workshops" designed for retardates, in that it offers more variety of skills. Consequently, we are doing our own research, you might say, and have no guidelines to follow." This Mr. Allan intends to set up a curriculum wnich will be divided Into practical work dealing with horticulture, and academic training. "We will show slides and films which will help students identify trees and plants: we will visit other greenhouses, and if girls are in the program by then, we may start a course in floral design. We hope to be able to involve about 40 students at a time at some future date. However, this will mean I will have to have a couple of helpers, as well as support from interested volunteers. We are realistic in realizing however, that only about 20 per cent of the trainees will ever be able to M-oceed into lucrative positions on a full time basis." Adjacent to the greenhouse Is a ouonset hut of major which has previously been used as a gymnasium by a local church group. It was purchased with tlie land and will be used for a number of purposes in conjunction with the training program. "We'll likely use it for classrooms, as well as a Mr. Allan said, "it is warm in winter and cool in summer, so once we get the greenhouse curriculum underway, we'll put it to good use." Mr. Allan said that the philos. ophy of the association is that the greenhouse program is to be open to any handicapped person who would benefit from the training. t'Any handicapped or retarded adult is welcome to apply for Mir. Allan said, "but unfortunately, at present we have no accommodation for students. The us now are ooaraing witn families in the Coaldale area. Eventually we hope to be able to build residences which wiV accommodate all the trainees. But that is a project of some future date. LIABILITY BONDS AUTO FIRE ROSSITER AGENCIES ITD.
