Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, March 9, 1974 Open-burning ban before council again A move will be made to ban backyard open burning at city council's regular meeting Monday A resolution submitted to council by Aid. Steve Kotch would put a section of the National Fire Code back into the city fire code. The section prohibits anyone from starting a fire of any kind in the open air without first having obtained a written permit irom the fire chief Anyone getting such a permit is obliged to ensure the fire is tended and that equipment is available to keep the fire from getting out of control. Barbecues are exempted from the regulation. The resolution was apparently initiated by a petition against backyard burning barrels started by a long-time resident of the city, Bernice Scott of 1215 4th Ave S., and by a submission from city fire marshall Doug Kometz Mr. Kometz points out that the city's fire code is now in conflict with provincial Jury attaches no blame in death No blame was attached in the death of a Lethbridge man who died Feb 3 following a fight in a hotel lobby, a local coroner's jury ruled Friday. John Douglas Koopman, 45, died from asphyxiation which resulted from vomit blocking his windpipe, the jury was told by Dr J Ernest Gnass, the pathologist who performed the autopsy. Death did not result from a fall or a blow, he said According to testimony given at the inquest, an argument between Mr. Koopman and George Houghton, 35, of Lethbridge, began shortly before midnight Feb 2 in the bar of the hotel. Mr Koopman, who was apparently intoxicated, invited Mr. Houghton outside the bar to finish the fight. Mr. Houghton said he preceded Mr. Koopman out of the bar into the lobby. When he turned around, Mr. Koopman hit him in the stomach. Mr. Hougton retaliated by striking him twice in the face Mr Koopman fell to the floor unconscious. When police arrived in response to the hotel manager's call they began mouth to mouth resuscitation. Ambulance personnnel continued resuscitation attempts on the way to the hospital. The man was pronounced dead by Dr. Ronald Loyer at about 1 a.m The jury offered no recommendations. Streakers late, but make appearance at LCC It was inevitable but streaking has officially reached Lethbndge. The city finally joined the craze that's sweeping North America when four persons, clad only in running shoes, were observed bounding down the main corridor of the Kate Andrews Building of Complete Selection of EARLY GARDEN NEEDS Potting Soil Peat Moss Fertilizer Terralite Clay Pots Peat Pots Planting Trays Call Garden Supplies 327-5767 DOWNTOWN Lethbridge Community College Friday. It was lunch hour and the corridor was crowded with students and staff. "They were all male as far as could be one observer commented. It all happened so fast, apparently, that a fleeting rear view was all anybody glimpsed. The four streaked out the main door and, braving near- freezing temperatures, disappeared into the adjoining coulees. There have been two or three other reports of streaking in the city but these had not been verified. FUEL SAVING!

Mr. Kometz said the fire department would like back yard burning brought under control because of many complaints, and burned fences and garages caused by mis- handled garbage burning. Mrs. Scott says in a letter to council she isn't against burning papers and leaves, but is against the burning of rancid garbage and rubber, "which smolders, either all day, or worse still, all night long, and produces a nauseating odor and affects my health A widow, Mrs. Scott collected the signatures of 17 neighbors who agree with her stand. The submission to council also includes a letter from the assistant fire marshall of Calgary which banned outdoor burning in 1969. He says there is no question the fire loss figures from careless rubbish burning are less since the control was instituted and adds: "We do hear from a few discontented people in the spring and fall who wish to clean up garden trash and debris and would rather bum it than put the material in plastic bags and have the sanitation department pick it up "I have spoken to many people, however, citizens in residential areas, business firms who have large amounts of waste to handle and contractors on construction or demolition who formerly burned tons of debris. "At first they felt the regulations were too restrictive but now the majority of them wonder why open burning was tolerated for so long." Burning permits in Calgary are issued on a very restricted basis, the official adds. Council Monday will also face a delegation armed with supporting letters and a petition that wants the city's old library turned into an art gallery rather than community services department offices. Support for the gallery appears to have mushroomed since council decided two weeks ago that the old library should be turned over to the community services department. The citizens committee for a Lethbridge and district art gallery will argue before council Monday that an art gallery would be a much better use for the building. Other items on council's agenda include submission of a pedestrian crossings policy by the city traffic advisory committe, a U of L request for reduced electrical rates, and a submission from Jean Staudinger on subsidized day care.

Perry Robinson and Henry Bruinsma inspect intestines Disaster services agency to open office in city Pedestrian hit by car Alberta's proposed municipal disaster services agency will have an office in Lethbridge, it was announced Friday. The new agency will mean a new direction for emergency preparedness, said Hugh Horner, deputy premier. He said the aim of the agency "is to prepare all communities for handling emergencies." The agency will strive to decentralize and improve emergency services throughout the province. New offices will be opened at St. Paul, Camrose, Red Deer and Lethbridge to augment existing disaster-service facilities in Grande Prairie, Local kennel club plans championship dog show The Lethbridge and District Kennel Club championship dog shows and licensed obedience trials will be held April 20 and 21 at the Exhibition Pavilion.

Because of a cutback in federal contributions to the program, a new financial structure will complement the new agency, Dr. Horner said. Conditional grants at the rate of 10 cents a person will be given to municipalities to help them establish and maintain local disaster services agencies, Dr. Horner said. A dollar-for-dollar matching fund for equipment will be set up to encourage development of disaster services at local levels, he said. This will enable municipalities to buy, at reduced cost, public safety equipment. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldp 222 5th SI S.
