Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta FLYING CLUB HELPS ITSiLF-Takino pa't in Hie recent Fort Macleod Flying Club "fly-in" are, above, Mrs. Nellie Sanderso n and Mrs. Delia West, both of Senate, Sask., Ted and Dr. John Walker. Oth sr photos: Pilot Dr. Walker and Mr. Swihart set for 20-minute flight over Forl Macleod a id Granum; Mrs. West and Mrs. Sanderson look somewhat relieved after flight. The Le hbridge Flying Club supplied four pilots. Two hundred people enjoyed the bird's ey 2 view. Women complain about airstrip TABEIl (HNS) Low fly- ing aircraft approaching or leaving the cast end of the W, K. Valgardson airstrip in south- west Taher has created consid- erable concern about the safety of persons and property on 41st Avenue. This has resulted in a petition bearing 45 signatures presented to town council Mon- day. The cast end of the runway is only 400 feet from the west end of the avenue which is directly in line with the run- way. Complaints on the flying of planes, came following the removal of 50-foot-high trees along the west side of 50th Street, allowing lower approach to the airstrip. The petition was presented by a delegation of tliree women On tour COALDALE (HNS) Paula Gregorash, Marvel and Rober- ta Harrison, nil of Coaldale, are the three singers from here to leave recently with the Aiuie Campbell Singers of Lethbridge for a one month singing lour of England, Wales, Germany and Holland. Mrs. Robert Harrison also went as an adult member of the group. rom the concerned area, Mrs. Anne Mikla, spokesman, advis- ed council that besides the haz- ards of low aircraft to both plane and house residents, dust tirred up by Ihe craft was dis- tressing. Further complaint was regis- tered against .the moving of street light poles which now ap- pear to present a flying haz- ard. The moving of street lights leaves the intersection of 50th Slreet and 41st Avenue in darkness. Members of council iold the three women and councillor Dennis Turin who resides 41st Avenue, that the complaint is well-founded and council is well-aware of the hazard. Progress was reported on the new municipal airport for which application has been made to the ministry of trans- port which will, when complet- ed relieve the hazard from the privately-owned strip. Mr. Valgardson who uses the airstrip regularly, advises cau- tion of all visiting planes using his airfield. It was agreed that use of the strip is essential for regular and emergency use of aircraft coming to Taher. How- ever, Ihe comparatively short runway makes landing and take-off difficult for those un- used to the field. Motor hotel construction imminent TABER (HNS) The Heri- tage Imi motor hotel, a develop- ment planned by Norman A. Long, took a couple of steps forward at a recent special meeting of the town council called to consider water and sewer sendees and highway ac- cess to the property south of Highway 3 and west of 50th St. Council agreed to install at cost, some 800 feel each of six- inch water main and 10-inch sewer main to service the prop- erly, with no charge to be made to the promoter for fire hydrants and sewer manholes required for the job. Council also agreed that the full cost of the highway access be paid by Mr. Long, hut that if requested, the town would undertiike the work at cost. Meanwhile, it is learned thai subdivision and survey of the iropcrly has been completed nid construction is to com- ncn ce when the red tape ol er work requirements has jeen c1 cared away.
