Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 - THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, March 2, 1973 Blue Sky Lodge official opening Don LeBaron, administrator for the senior citizens' residence in Lethbridge, has confirmed that the Hon. Neil Crawford, minister of health and welfare, and possibly other provincial officials and MLAs, will attend the official opening of the new Blue Sky Lodge. The ceremony will commence at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 17, with a speech from Mr. Crawford, followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The lodge will be open for inspection from 1-4 p.m. that day and the public is invited to view the new premises. Staff members and volunteers will be on hand to provide information and serve tea. Blue Sky Lodge, with Kay Lenning as matron, opened January 22 and all vacancies were immediately filled. All three lodges in the city are now fully occupied, but Mr* LeBaron says "the waiting list has now dwindled down to a very few names awaiting immediate entry." Anyone interested in immediate admission to Green Acres, Golden Acres or Blue Sky lodges, "should a>pply as soon as possible," to Mr. LeBaron, 143116th Ave. N., phone 328-9722 or 328-9422. NEIL CRAWFORD . . . Health Minister Mr. LeBaron has also called for help in obtaining some additional comforts for the new lodge. He said he would appreciate any assistance he could yet from any organization, service club or individual to help provide "a piano, stereo or color television, but particularly a piano," for residents. LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By KATHIE GARRATT former Lethbridge Community College student AT MOST post - secondary in-stitutions, tlie relationship between student and instructor is very impersonal. But, at the Lethbridge Community College, the attitude is quite different. The instructors seem to take a genuine interest in their students' affairs, both in school and outside. They not only have the responsibility of teaching but also that of counselling. It is a good feeling to know they think of you as a person rather than a number, as is the case in many other institutions. Although I have recently left the college, I bave no regrets concerning my original choice to attend the school. Through the course I took, I acquired knowledge which has helped me understand many different kinds of people. To know one kind of person is to know all. By attending a higher Institution, a person is able to get an idea of what people are all about. The college draws its student body from many corners of the world. It seems to be a melting pot of students as much as Canada itself is a melting pot of peoples. The college experience is well worthwhile, offering the student fun, as well as an education.    The subject of fun brings to mind mid - semester break which most students are enjoying right now. And while out on good behavior, remember to give some �upport to the school basketball teams - both the guys and the girls. The College Kodiaks will be playing tonight and tomorrow at the LCC. The games are part of the Alberta College Easket-ball Championships, and the winner will be declared provincial champion. Our Kodiaks plan on putting up a grand fight, and will hopefully go on to the Four West Championships scheduled for next weekend in Vancouver. Opening ceremonies are set for 7 p.m. tonight, wStfi one game to follow immediately and another at 9. The girls' team, Kodiettes, travelled to Red Deer to fight for a place as provincial champions. If they win, they too will be continuing on to playoffs in Vancouver. Good luck to both! * � * While much of the activity is happening out of town, the college Harlequins have decided to put on some entertainment on home grounds. You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a musical comedy being staged at the Yates tonight and tomorrow at 8 p.m. There will be a special matinee performance Saturday at 2 p.m. and tickets are available at the box office. Everyone's reminded to make the most of what's left of the weekend. Monday will be here pretty quick, and that means back to the grindstone! t * o (The views voiced In the above column do not necessarily concur with either those of The Herald or Leister's, but arc a reflection of the student's opinion.) * LEISTERS' COMING EVENTS + Lethbridge Community College Harlequins present "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown" Yates Memorial Centre - March 1, 2 and 3 The Canadian Mental Health Association Presents . . .

CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP)~ "Kids are my main business: bikes are secondary," says Gwendolyn Pickett, the woman who helped 100 boys and girls build new bicycles for themselves. At first she was just helping the 12- and 13-year-olds who had turned her home into something of a community centre. It became a mobile business In which repairs "cost the kids about half the usual amount," she says. When she first bought the panel truck in which she carries parts and tools, she says, she didn't know what to ex- Cameramen criticized by princess LONDON (AP) - Princess Anne gave news photographers a sharp lesson on horses yesterday before galloping off with the young cavalry officer she is dating, The Guardian newspaper reports. As the 22-year-old princess emerged with Lieut. Mark Phillips from his parents' farmhouse home in Berkshire County, she reined in her mount before a group of photographers. "You get my goat," she is quoted by The Guardian as telling them. "I've just got this horse settled, now you upset him. Horses are very sensitive. They're not like humans- they don't understand what all the fuss is about. "I'm going to come here every day and do the same thing every day-how long are you going to keep this up?" Before she rode away with rhillips, Anne added that reporters the previous day had the name of her horse wrong. It is called Columbus, not Bed Passion, she stated. pect. Now she hopes to buy two more and to hire other women who like young people. The divorced mother of five says the steps leading her into her business began when she took her four sons to register for neighborhood 1 baseball teams. She got that done, but she also became a coach. Kids wanting to practise soon were overrunning her home. "Their bikes would be falling apart, if they had one to fall apart," she says. "Many had lost bikes to thieves. Others never had bikes but wanted one." BOUGHT OLD BIKES Her answer was to buy 25 beat-up out-of-style bicycles from a second hand store lor $25. Then she taught youngsters to strip them for parts. "We got 10 good bikes out of the 25," she says. When the children began wanting smaller, modern ones, she told them that if each could get up $20, she would buy the parts and they could learn to build their own and to service them. That was two years ago. Since then she and her trained teen-aged helpers have supervised construction by more than 100 boys and girls. "I'm just mechanically inclined," she says. She grew up working on cars with her father, who cared for his own automobile in spare time from his interior exterior decorator's job. HAD TO CLOSE Mrs. Pickett's garage re-pairshop had to close due to zoning laws, but rolling neighborhood ice cream vendors gave her the idea as how to go on. "I was kidding a telephone repairman about buying his truck," she says. "The next day he stopped back and told me they were going to sell some old trucks. I went to four auctions before I got one." Putting her automotive experience to work, she overhauled it, painted it and equipped the Inside with work* space, shelves and drawers. Then, she says, "I hired a couple of kids to help-all it takes is one kid to attract others - and started touring the streets. > "There was so much work," she remembers, "it took two months of dally tours witt tools to cover 10 streets." *$n and out Mrs. H. K. Coulter, along with the RCMP wives' association, the Scarlet and Gold, recently hosted an afternoon tea in honor of Mrs. Ed Basaraba.
