Coleman unhappy with road route COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) After studying the brochure provided by the provincial gov- ernment showing the route of Highway 3 through the Crows- nest Pass, Coleman town coun- cil decided to "extend an invita- tion to chief highway engineer R. H. Cronkhite to meet with council to discuss the coal-haul route through Coleman which is not shown on the proposed route. Other matters regarding the selected route will also be discussed. Council will seek the service of a legal firm to set up the necessary procedure to form a society so that no further de- lays will hinder the setting up of a CFCN-TV satellite to serve the area. It was found neces- sary to form a society so that a brief can be presented at hearings in the fall. Council accepted a proposal by AGT which wants to bury a cable underground in the vi- cinity of Nez Perce subdivision near the Horace Allen School, providing the work is done prior to the paving project planned by the town in the area. The pubilc works committee indicated several small paving projects were planned which will include the underpass up to the laons Club "Piggy a section in the front of the new Credit Union offices complex and in some areas of the Ner Perce subdivision. A major paving program is planned for next year. The secretary advised tax notices have been mailed and many citizens are taking ad- vantage of the 10 per cent dis- count allowed on current tax- es up to July 8.

TABER fHNS) Water sup- ply and rates took up a good portion of the town council agenda this week when the pos- sibility of constructing a third irrigation water storage reser- voir came up for renewed con- sideration. Council agreed that applica- ion forms be obtained under he capital projects fund which reimburses the municipality or all or part of the labor costs depending on the time of con- struction. Council agreed to supply wa- ter for domestic purposes to the provincial park at com- mercial rates. Park administra- tion has agreed to be respon- sible for installation of the line which would connect to the wa- ter main near the cemetery. The town will provide the ne- cessary water meter. A request, tabled over sev- eral meetings, of the depart- ment of highways for water service to its shop near High- way 36, north of the town boundary, met with less en- couragement. Coun c i 1 refused to provide a line for the single customer in the area, but agreed to supply water if the department installed the line which would be reimbursed as more users hooked onto the line. Thursday, June 28, 1979 THI 1ITHSRIDOE HERALD Board decides on new site for Sparwood school NATAL the regu- lar meeting of the trustees of the Fernie Schorl District, the board decided to make appli- cation to the department of education in Victoria to pur- chase a site for a new Spar- wood Elementary School under the terms agreed to with the District of Sparwood. Hie property in question is in the lower part of Sparwood, near the recreation grounds. The price of the acreage is 500 per acre. The property is approximately 10 acres. The board will be for sub-dividing the property, for legal, engineering and registry costs, for clearing and grading, for maintenance of a buff- er strip to municipal standards and for utility services. In addi- tion the board and the council agreed that the property would have no more than one access to Pine and no more than two to the CPR access road. Although the board did not have an option on property in the Elk Valley, it decided form Mrs. Nearing that it was no longer interested in pur- chasing her property for a school site. The Nearing prop- erty is located across Elk Val- ley Road from La Cuisinette and it was subject to the pro- vincially-imposed land freeze. The board received a letter from the department of educa- tion acknowledging the sal of the board for a change in representation by trustees. The department expressed pleasure that the board had recommended representa t i o n on the board for the Village of Elkford. The board gave formal ap- proval to the Elkford Lions Club to proceed with the in- stallation of playground equip- ment adjacent to the present adventure playground on the school site in Elkford. The Elk- ford Lions proposed to pur- chase, install and maintain a set of six swings, a set of four teeter-totters and a spiral slide. The board's building commit- tee had previously advised the Elkford Lions that the proposal would probably be accepted by the board. R. Hughes presented a report on a proposal from Selkirk Col- lege to establish university level courses as extension courses of the college. The courses would be con- ducted in Fernie on an experi- mental basis with teachers from Selkirk making regular visits to the district for lec- tures and with a communica- tions system established which would give an almost instanta- neous exchange of written mes- sages between student and pro- fessor. There would be a good selection of academic subjects included in the program and the costs per course would be comparable to the cost of en- rolment at Selkirk College.

Tire board decided to discuss the proposal with a representa- tive of the department of edu- cation, who will be visiting the school district shortly and to grant approval of the program subject to the results of the dis- cussions with the department representative. A letter was received from the Sparwood Minor Summer Sports Association offering to make improvements to the playing fields st the Spanvood school grounds. The board ac- cepted the kind offer of the group. As a result of a request from the school in Elko the board decided to seek legal advice in regard to liability insurance re- quirements for use of private vehicles for the transportation of students during regular school hours and on extra-cur- ricular activities. TTie decision was made after the board regrettfully turn- ed down a proposal from Elko teachers to conduct a swinj- ming program as part of school athletic program in June. The proposal was turned down because there was not sufficient time for the board to obtain the necessary approvals for the program. The trans- portation problem was only one of several which required fur- ther study.
