Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta IB - THE UTHBRI001 HERALD - Saturday. March IS, 1*71 A DAWNING THE ARENA NEVER SAW: FIRE IN THE 49-YEAR-OLD BUILDING IS OUT City house builders lukewarm to west side By HERB JOHNSON Herald City Hall Reporter Lethbridge bouse builders are apparently in no great hurry to begin residential development west of the river. About 25 local builders responded with only lukewarm enthusiasm ait a special meeting Thursday called by City Manager Tom Nutting to assess the developers' interest in promoting residential growth in the city's first west side subdivision. Mr. Nutting had proposed that several smaller build i n 8 firms band together into a company large enough to take over development of a 10 to 20-acre parcel as a complete package. He suggested three or four companies might handle the entire subdivision of 185 lots in this way. Although the builders were unanimously opposed to the job being given to an outside firm large enough to handle it, no one stood up and said they thought local builders could take it on. One builder said the co-operative idea had been tried two years ago and it had fallen flat then. Mr. Nutting's proposal also included servicing costs being the responsibility of the developer as part of the package deal. The developer would pro- vide the services (Including streets, curbs and gutters) under city supervision. In this way it would be the builder, not the city, who would have the capital outlay for services -money that would be tied up until the lots were sold. Costs of these interior services and off - site improvements were given as $943,000. Mr. Nutting said the city had reached the point where it was taking a "bard look" at financing of west side development and that if the builders were really interested in moving west they might help out in the financing of these costs. The general reaction was that the city should stick with the traditional method of doing things. One builder suggested the city open up 50 lots near the university site, selling them for $6,000 each on a cash basis. He said they would sell quick- Tap dancer from Red Deer sets sizzling pace By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer An 18 - year - old Red Deer competitor set a sizzling pace Friday at the Alberta Dance Festival when she danced her way to a mark of 95, the top honors bestowed for the first four days of the five - day festival. Wenda Crawford, whose previous high mark was 91, wowed adjudicator Brian Foley with a solo tap performance which Mr. Foley said was "as professional a dance as I have ever seen in any dance festival." The dance "personified everything I have been asking for all week," Mr. Foley said. Aside from the highly-praised tap performance, Miss Crawford showed she is no slouch in Irish dancing either by earning a 90, from adjudicator Sandra Bald Jones, in the Irish Jig class for students 17-18 years. Qty pays top interest this year Lethbridge citizens have earned a total of $87,000 interest on their prepaid city taxes since 1967. Figr.res released by the treasurer's office show $18,900 paid out in 1971. This was interest at six per cent on total prepaid taxes of $793,000. The 1970 figure (also at six per cent) was not far behind- $18,300 on taxes amounting to $683,000. The big year was 1969. The city collected $822,000, but paid interest of only $18,500. The interest rate in the 1967 - 1969 period was only five per cent. Interest in 1967 and 1969 was just under the $16,000 mark. The money the city collects goes into the operating accounts. Prepaid taxes must be paid before the end of February. Local property owners have until the end of June before the city begins to apply penalties to their tax payments. Friday's 61 classes at the Yates Memorial Centre saw Red Deer students take most of the top marks in Highland, Irish, tap and stage dancing, with Lethbridge competitors almost clearing the board in ballet. Debbie Skaley, another Red Deer contestant, earned a 90 in a solo song and dance class for competitors 15-16 years. Breaking Red Deer's clean sweep in Highland categories was a young Edmonton dancer, Sean McGuinness, who captured a 90 and an 89 in the under-15 Jig and Hornpipe classes. In ballet, Lethbridge students clinched five trophies and earned six marks of 90 or more from adjudicator Gwenneth Lloyd. Lori Ully and Carol Jolliffe won a mark of 93 for their per- formance in the duet character class for students 13-14 years. The same mark went to Kim Ellison and Vanessa Plettel of Lethbridge for their dancing in the duet character class for students 11-12 years. Hot on the heels of the Elli-son-Plettell performance, however, were Cheryl Blakney and Darlene Olafson of Edmonton, competitors in the duet character class, who won a second-place 92. Carol Jolliffe of Lethbridge, dancing in the national class for competitors 13 - 14 years, won a first - place mark of 91, a bare one mark ahead of the second - place runner-up John Kaminski of Edmonton. Mr. Kaminski had earlier, with partner Beverly Miskiw of Edmonton, hit the 91 level in a national duet performance. Two marks of 90 went to the Jolliffe Academy of Dancing for the Lethbridge school's ensemble work in the mime category for students 12 and under, and the national class for students 15 and under. Allison Stillwell, also of Lethbridge, danced to a 90 in the national class for ll-to-12-year-olds, just beating out second-place finisher Kim Ully of Lethbridge. Miss Ully earned a mark of 89 in the class. Friday's lengthy 17 - hour session, which concluded about 1 a.m. Saturday morning, saw the Jolliffe Academy win the Lethbridge Herald trophy for national ensemble excellence; and the Senior Ballet Trophy for top mark in ensemble ballet classes. Lori Ully of Lethbridge clinched the Carter Trophy, Friday's festival results TAP AND STAGE JAZZ ENSEMBLE. 18 and under: Bain School of Dancing. Red Deer; Edmonton School at Ballet, Edmonton.

A special show tonight, starting at 8 p.m. at the Yates, will feature highlight performances of the festival plus the award-ling of about 40 scholarships, trophies and awards. The performances give the public an opportunity to see the best students - those selected by the adjudicators and the festival committee - from among the approximately 900 entries. All seats are reserved for the show. Tickets may be obtained at the Yates box office. lv, allowing the city to recover the costs of servicing and then use the money to open up another parcel. Several builders said the $4,-000 to $6,000 price range quoted by Mr. Nutting for west side lots was close enough to east side prices that they would prefer to continue building in the established portion of the city. Another suggestion was that the west side was considered to be appropriate for middle or higher priced houses, while the current demand was for low cost housing. Mr. Nutting brought up the idea of a co-operative effort several times during the meeting and asked that anyone with suggestions submit them to his office in the next week or two. The "hard look" at the cost of development on the west side was born out by figures quoted by Mr. Nutting, ' who noted that the current invest' ment by the city comes to $2 million. The cost of providing services (trunk sewer lines, power, perimeter roads, feeder mains) is estimated at $1.3 million for the next phase. This is the project currently under consideration by city council. Total development costs for land and services for the west side could come to an estimated $12.6 million. Mr. Nutting said the information from the meeting would be given to city council at a special closed session to be held Monday. A decision would then be made in open session on how to proceed with provision of services to the west side. The contract is to be awarded before March 25. ANNUAL PUBLIC MEETING LETHBRIDGE UNITED APPEAL Wed., March 17th - 8:00 p.m. CANADIAN RED CROSS BUILDING 1120 7th Avenue S. Any contributor 1* a member, ha* voting privileges, and should attend and got the facts. 'No complications on U of L job9 There are no police escorts for non - union men and no problems of any sort on the University of Lethbridge construction site, says Dennis Wilson, project manager for Poole (instruction Ltd., managers of the entire development. "The job is working absolutely perfectly normal here without any complications and I'm at a loss to explain what all these stories about conflict and police lines over here are all about," Mr. Wilson told The Herald. Roy Berlando, secretary of the Lethbridge building trades council, has said things are "pretty hot" at the university construction site, and union officers had reported that city police were escorting non-union Plessey Canada Ltd. employees to and from work. Lethbridge City Police Chief James Carpenter told The Herald Friday afternoon that "none of our men are on any such escort duty." Mr. Wilson, said the Plessey employees were working "without harrassment or interference," and said he did not expect any problems to develop. A U of L official said suggestions of a troubled labor scene on the site "come from a vacuum and are entirely worthless." Since the university project is not a union closed shop operation, it is completely legal for a contractor to employ nonunion men. A lengthy walk - out by union employees over the Plessey men would be "entirely illegal," Mr. Wilson said. Girl Hurt Patricia McNair, 16, of 1311 5th Ave. S., was reported in satisfactory condition at the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital this morning, following an accident in which the car she was in was in collision with a fire hydrant. About $1,100 damages resulted to the car from the accident, which occurred about l a.m. Saturday at Mayor Magrath Drive and 7th Ave. S. Miss McNair was treated for shock and kept in hospital for observation. He added that none of the construction workers on the job seemed to have any intention of walking but, or to be unhappy with anything about the project at present. He said the over-all project is on schedule, with a few parts "away ahead in some eases." Some of the finishing trades are a bit behind schedule due to normal problems including late delivery of their supplies, he said, but Poole is confident that the university will be finished on or ahead of schedule this fall. Chamber warns on 'invoices' Wilf Bowns, manager of the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce, says local businessmen should be on the lookout for "invoices" for advertising that their firm has not ordered. Mr. Bowns said there has been at least one recent case in which a local firm had received what appears to be an invoice, accompanied by an ad which the firm had placed in a . publication. The ad had been taken from a publication other than the one sending the "invoice." Mr. Bowns warned there may be a "clip and paste" scheme operating in the city. Similar cases have occurred in Alberta in recent years. The post office act has been amended to prevent such practices. Any such "invoices" must be marked clearly as a solicitation for the order of goods or services and not a bill or statement of account due. Any material of this nature not so marked should be sent to the post office investigations department TAPE SALE Regular JP QC $7.95.
