Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta MurdW, It, TMI LfTHMIDOE HEMLO The Herald- District School district surplus for 1973 Battle ground problems of last summer at Whipple ranch have been solved Mrs. Whipple's new well works fine Tap brings water every time now By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor CLARESHOLM All's well that ends well. Fort Macleod rancher Jane Whipple, 81, can turn the taps in her kitchen and get water every time now. She has a brand new well built at a cost of by the Alberta department of the environment. And the Willow Creek MD now has its own public well. The North Macleod Water Haulers Association spurred these developments It had to because Mrs. Whipple, on May 4. 1973, denied them access to a flowing well some considerable distance from her house Everyone is happy now. But every drop of water seemed to germinate a new problem on the Golden Valley Ranch, four miles north of Fort Macleod, over the past year It all started back during the Second World War when the department of national defence built a well on Mrs Whipple's stepfather's Golden Valley Ranch. He was the late Jim Ridell McLean. The water was piped to serve an RCAF field at Granum. After the war neighbors and the North Macleod Water Haulers Association continued to fill their tank trucks at the flowing well Then in May, 1973, Mrs Whipple. the widow of the late Russell Whipple who died Nov 30, 1959, decided the water haulers were not going to get another drop of water from her well They figured it was their well. A battle ensued. No trespassing signs were torn down, barricades knocked over and Mrs Whipple, sitting beside a pipe in the well house, had her finger crushed by someone wielding a pair of bolt cutters. Something had to be done. The MD talked of expropriating the well. This didn't seem to be the answer because Mrs. Whipple claimed the water haulers were taking so much water out of the flowing well she couldn't get any water from the well at her house. Grabbing the bucket by the handle, the North Macleod Water Haulers decided to drill a well on private property about 1.500 feet from Mrs Whipple's buildings. (There was also a proposal, never acted upon, to use a road allowance and sink a well right in Mrs. Whipple's In August, 1973, Mrs. Whipple's worst fears materialized. Her well, off in the field, was now being left in peace, but the well at her house was producing empty bubbles for the bathroom. The water haulers' well had lowered the water level in Mrs. Whipple's well by about one foot. Her well, dug in 1912, was not properly constructed and had no cement casing to the surface. The government was called in. The Willow Creek MD and the department of the environment, forming a bucket brigade to get solutions to the scene, decided to build the ranching woman a new well and cap the old one at the house In November, 1973, surveyors established the location. The new well is to serve Mrs. Whipple's house, nephew Albert Kiffiak's house ,and the Whipple barn. The system is to be pressurized. The MD takes over the water haulers' well. It won't be licenced until Mrs. Whipple's water troubles are over. In January, 1974, government hired well drillers started work near Mrs. Whipple's house and capped her other well. The latest development took place at the recent Willow Creek MD meeting. The MD agreed to pay one-third of the total cost of Mrs. Whipple's new well, with the department of the environment picking up the rest of the tab. Ownership of the well at her house is invested in Mrs. Whipple, her heirs and successors. A pipeline installation to the three points of use will be finished before Sept 30, 1974. Terms and conditions on the MD's well are being drafted and.there appears to be an adequate supply of good, pure water for everyone's needs. The public will pay 25 cents for 500 gallons at the MD well, or 50 cents to fill the average gallon tank. It will be metered out by a time clock that operates a pump that pumps 100 gallons a minute. This pump, a three-phase unit, cost the MD (installation and draws water from the 35-foot depth. Some councillors said they might have trouble with the pump sucking sand. But the MD figures its troubles at the Golden Valley Ranch are over. It could sell as much as gallons a day and possibly take in revenue to the tune of or more annually. P1NCHER CREEK (HNS) Pincher Creek school division had a surplus of the 1973 annual statement shows. Unexpected revenues contributed to the surplus. There was a marked increase in enrolment which accounted for of which was paid (for the Peigan Indian Reserve) by the federal government. The sale of capital assets, two teacherages and a house trailer and other revenue accounted for Interest earned and an agreement with the Pincher Creek Huttertte Colony also contributed to the surplus. The total expenditure for 1973 was less than estimated in the budget. Enrolment in all schools in the school division was with 77 full-time and three part-time teachers. The average training for the teachers was 3.95 years and 50 per cent had 10 or more years of experience. It was felt that the three- week teacher strike hadn't caused the students to suffer any long-term results. The new settlement provided for an increase of nine per cent in the salary grid There has been a very positive response to the community school. Registrations have been both from the Peigan reserve and from Pincher Creek and area. Two special funds have been activated by the department of education: The Educational Opportunities Fund offered per elementary student for two projects: the multi-age classes with a dual intake; and an environmental study involving an enclosed plot of land and a study camp. The learning disabilities fund offered per elementary student for provision of special services. The funding enabled the division to maintain assistance in reading and to undertake diagnosis of students having difficulties'. The school division has Wo time for substitute PICTURE BUTTE (HNS) After 44 years as a full-time teacher, Dorothy Dalgliesh just doesn't have the time to substitute teach. During her tenure in the classroom she introduced more than children to the basic skills of education in varying degrees. She taught in several centres in Southern Alberta, including Iron Springs, and Picture Butte, where she had a school named after her. She has helped to ease the transition from a home to a classroom atmosphere for many children. She excelled as a primary teacher, and each child was a special individual in whom she instilled a set of values which would endure a lifetime. Along with teaching the fundamentals she tapped the esthetic potential of each, helping them to develop self confidence, security, and respect for others. Her daily duties, however, did not start and end in the classroom. They started when she left with a school van to pick up the children in the morning and finished when she delivered them back home safely again at the end of the school day. Several summers she took a school bus full of children to Kootenay, B.C. to attend the Japanese Mission Camp. During'the last few years she has taken a group of 12 to camp at Canmore, and taught the nursery class there. Twice a month she takes a group of ladies to Lethbridge where they attend a luncheon or dinner meeting of the Stonecroft Christian Business Women's firpup. Tuesday mornings, she is hostess to the Friendly Bible Coffee Hoar, a group of ladies using- the Stonecroft principles. One day a week is devoted to the preparation of crafts and handwork for preschoolers who are enrolled in a special Sunday school class. you have problem water.

Mr. Thompson is a member of the airport development committee. Mr. Thompson also said the recently-formed Taber Local Development Company likely will finance the proposed new building scheduled for the airport. He also advised that a "fixed base operator has been thinking seriously of locating at the airport." The operator would be responsible for maintenance of planes as well as providing fuel for aircraft that land at Taber. The ministry of transport has been approached with regard to lights for the runway. These would be controlled by a solar cell that would turn them on in the evenings and off at dawn. An estimate of expenses for immediate projects includes 15.000 for electrical power installations, for natural gas and for painting needed stripes on the landing strip, Mr. Thompson also noted that the annual repainting of Disabled band wins trophy A five-piece band from the Lethbridge Handicapped Society won third place Feb. 22 and 23 at the Royal Hotel Talent Show in Taber.
