Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, March 9, 1973 Tha't's your 'living room you're mucking up LITTERCHECK TAKES AIM By ANDY OGLE Herald Staff Writer Litter, it seems, like taxes, will always be with lis in greater or lesser amounts. And it's especially visible In early spring when the snow is gone, the dust flies thick, and brown and grey are the predominate colors in the landscape. With this in mind the provincial environment department this year is mounting an anti-litter campaign called Alberta Littercheck to combat what they call by no means A1 b e r t a's greatest pollution problem, but one that is highly visible, one to which' everyone contributes and one that everyone can do something about. The province-wide campaign starts April 30 and runs through May 6 under the auspices of the environment department and a non-profit organization called Outdoors Unlittered (Alberta). The department asked each municipality to appoint a co-ordinator by March 1 to organize local efforts, but so far there's no co-ordinator here and in fact no-one at city hall seems to be aware of the coming campaign. In the meantime the message, which the environment department sent out to schools, service clubs, environmental groups, industry and youth organizations throughout the province, seems to be getting through here and there. Al Psikla's grade 6 class at Galbraith School, 8th Ave. and 18th St. N. received the government's material, but they were way ahead of officialdom. In the middle of February they held a penny carnival and raised $103 to buy garbage ban-els to place around the schoolyard. They've also put up anti-litter posters and slogans on classroom and hallway walls, made mobiles out of the litter they've collected in the schoolyard and may eventually start picking up after litterbugs in nearby playgrounds. That's presumably t h e kind of action, the people who planned Alberta Littercheck had in mind. Their slogan is '"It's your living room; do your part to keep it clean."

AGT's assigning policy to be studied by premier The premier's office has asked for a report from Alberta Government Telephones on its policy of assigning business telephone numbers. The requested was prompted, The Herald was told, by a letter from the sister of the late owner of Yellow Cabs in Lethbridge claiming AGT improperly awarded the. Yellow Cab telephone number to a competitor. Signed by Anne Mysyk, of Westmount, Quebec, the letter refers to the "total injustice" of an AGT action which she says gave Bridge Cabs the Yellow Cabs phone number immediately after her brother, Patrick Mysyk, died last July 25. Mr. Mysyk owned YelowCabs. The letter claims the AGT action ruined what chance Mr. Mysyk's estate had of selling the Yellow Cab business since the phone number is such a vital part of the business. "Even before my brother was buried, Bridge had AGT give them Yellow phone numbers. For the price of a phone bill, they acquired my late brother's most important asset," the letter claims. Harold Millican, executive assistant in the premier's office, told The Herald's legislature bureau Thursday that his office received the letter signed by Miss Mysyk on Feb. 17. Four days later, the premier's office requested a report on the matter from AGT. The provincial ombudsm a n, George McClellan, is also checking into the matter. "I've received a complaint just recently and I'm presently trying to determine whether I have any jurisdiction," he told The Herald. He said he too is awaiting Information from AGT. The Herald has called the telephone numbers listed in the Lethbridge telephone directory for Yellow Cabs. The operator cut in and asked what number the reporter was dialing. After the reporter told her he was calling the Yellow Cab number, she told him the number had been changed. Then she gave a substitute number. After dialing that number, the reporter got Bridge Cabs. When the AGT information operator was asked for the number for Yellow Cabs, she politely and automatic ally gave the number listed in the directory for Bridge Cabs. One operator even said the number is a new listing for Yellow Cabs. A public trustee for the estate of Patrick Mysyk - the late owner of Yellow Cabs-has been unable to sell the company. He says there are numerous claims against the estate and that the total assets are worth only about $2,000. The letter received by the premier's office claim Mr. Mysyk has been considering selling Yellow Cabs for about $8,-000 before he died. The letter also says Bridge Cabs ofered to buy Yellow Cabs for $3,000 but a spokesman for Bridge Cabs denies his firm offered any money for the Yellow Cab business. Glass recycling project not up to par-Yurko By GREG McINTYRE Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON - A Calgary Social Credit MLA attacked the Conservatives Thursday for not taking advantage of a federal government-funded glass recycling project in Calgary. Roy Wilson (Calgary Bow) asked Environment Minister Bill Yurko in the legislature why the provincial government isn't giving discarded bottles to a Local Initiatives Program recycling project. Environment Minister Yurko said he has had "extensive discussions" with operators of the project, but the project doesn't meet provincial specifications. "We simply can't allow any organization that's sponsored entirely by a L.I.P. grant to handle these bottles in any way they see fit . . ." Bottles collected by the environment department universal depots are currently disposed of in land-fill garbage sites until a glass recycling industry can be established, Mr. Yurko said. Glass collected and crushed by the Calgary project is reused by a glass factory in Medicine Hat. Mr. Yurko said "We have a number of companies negotiat- ing with us for the establish-j ment of a glass recycling industry . . . it's important not to diminish confidence in this recycling at this time ..." Glass recycling plants must meet Alberta Liquor Control Board and other regulations, he added. Possible alternate uses of recycled glass include asphalt and glass bricks, he said. "Our entire thrust is directed toward the recycling of resources. Cans are now being Farmer killed A 53-year-old Magrath disrict farmer died Thursday when his clothing became entangled in the power take-off of his tractor. Mervin Thompson was found by his two sons, Richard and Bob, about 7:30 p.m. The accident occurred as Thompson was crushing grain on his farm, one mile west of Magrath, Coroner Dr. J. E. McTav-is undecided about whether an inquest will be called. Thiev get car, tools A 1973 station wagon worth about $4,000 was stolen Wednesday night in a break-in af Pro-Motors, on 2nd Ave. S. The break - in was reported al)cut 0 a.m. but the company did not report that a car was missing from tlicir showroom until the early afternoon. The car, an orange Mazda RX3, was used to take about $1,900 worth of automotive tools away from the scene. It is believed that thieves gained entry by breaking a window and then opening a door from the inside. When the car was taken, it had about two gallons of gas in the tank. A police investigation is continuing. recycled, returnable bottles are being recycled entirely from the universal depots. "The wine and liquor bottles are as yet not being recycled, but it should be understood that the universal depots have only been in effect for two months and it's just too much to expect that everything can be done in a couple of weeks." Mr. Wilson asked Federal and Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Don Getty if his department wasn't responsible for "maximizing the benefits of L.I.P. funds where there is an overlapping of federal and pro* vincial pi*ojects, as in recycling Mr. Getty replied his department hasn't had anything to do* with the Local Initiatives Pro-! gram. Mr. Wilson asked Premier Lougheed if the provincial government is encouraging the establishment in Alberta of a glass manufacturing company. The premier said he'd pass the question along to Industry Minister Fred Peacock who was at a transportation conference at Saskatoon.
