Schools account for bulk of county surplus COALDALE A (teachers' strike and a higher-than-expected increase in student enrolment were major reasons for an surplus shown in the 1973 financial statement of Lethbridge County. Bob Grant, county manager, told about 40 ratepayers at the county's annual meeting here Saturday most of the county's surplus came from the school committee. The committee showed a surplus last year of Under the county system, both municipal and school affairs are handled by the same administration. Enrolment in county schools was higher than expected, Mr. Grant said, resulting in more provincial grants than was budgeted for. And while the provincial government withheld some money because of the teachers' strike last year, not all the funds covering the period when schools were closed were withheld. General county revenue for the 1973 fiscal year was about million, with about 50 per cent coming from the province under the school foundation program. The county paid into the program in the same year. Revenue in 1972 was million. Taxation brought about million to county coffers in 1973, an increase of 14 per cent over the million raised in taxation in 1972. Expenditures during 1973 totalled million, about more than the previous year, with the largest amount paid out for education, which received million, about less than the amount spent by the school committee in 1972. Debt charges accounted for expenditures of in 1973. Capital expenditures last year totalled with coming from general revenue, from sale of debentures and long-term borrowing, from reserves for purchasing the land for the new county building, and the remaining from the sale of debentures in 1972. The largest capital purchase made by the county last year was road equipment, costing Some was spent on installation of the Hardieville sewer and1 water system, leaving to be spent completing the system. The county spent buying a lot on 4th Avenue S. and 9th street in Lethbridge as the possible location of a new administration building. The largest expenditure for school capital works was for expansion of Coalhurst High School. Another was spent building basketball pads at the R. I. Baker School in Coaldale and the Sunnyside Elementary School. The school committee spent million for teacher salaries and expenses, the largest expenditure under the school section of the statement. Plant operation and maintenance cost the school committee about school busing cost and the purchase of instructional aids, including text books cost and adminstration costs were The total municipal expenditure in 1973 was with spent for public works salaries, for road paving and piling, for machinery repairs, for adminstration, for recreation and community services. The county's accumulated surplus at the end of 1973 was County decisions on trustee group, offices supported Space worm Seemingly drifting through space, the walkway university campus. The glowing walkway is snaking at the University of Lethbridge creates an image of its way to the U of L aperture sculpture in the back- the latest in space technology rather than part of a ground. COALDALE Two motions criticizing the handling of Lethbridge County affairs by the council were defeated here by ratepayers attending the annual county meeting. A motion asking the school committee to reconsider it's withdrawal from the Southern Alberta Alberta School Authorities Association and a resolution calling for the construction of a new county administration building in Picture Butte both went down to defeat as most ratepayers either supported' county council decisions, or felt they couldn't dictate council policy. One ratepayer said the decision to withdraw from SASAA the regional bargaining association was a "retrograde step." Without regional bargaining, inexperienced county officials are left alone to deal with the "very highly experienced union bargainers" from the Alberta Teachers Association. Prairie fatalities Crash kills area youth Ratepayers also oppose planned fertilizer plant A Granum youth killed Sunday on a district road near Claresholm was among at least six accidental deaths on the Prairies during the weekend. Laurie Kevin Joseph Caouette, 15, was a passenger in a car involved in a collision at a district intersection six miles west of Wopdhouse. The driver of the vehicle, Michael Brant. 17, of Claresholm, is in the Foothills Hospital in Calgary with multiple injuries. Occupants of the other vehicle involved, John Adams Eaton, 41, ad Darryle Ann Eaton, 38, are in the Claresholm hospital with mutiple cuts. Coroner J. D. Laidlaw of Colony students subject of conference at U of L Problems and special education requirements for Hutterite students will be the focus of a one-day conference at the University of Lethbridge Saturday. The conference, in Room C- 674 of the academic residence building, is sponsored by the U of L education faculty and the intercultural education council of the Alberta Teachers' Association. The conference co- ordinator. Ray Stewart, says plans for the organization of an ATA specialist council of Hutterite Colony teachers will be discussed following the workshop. Registration for the conference is at 9 a.m. and the first session begins at a.m. Nanton is undecided about an inquest. Robert Hamilton, 33, of Calgary died in hospital Sunday from injuries received when he was hit by a car while jogging on a street in northwest Calgary Friday. He was the city's sixth traffic fatality of the year. Jack Lawrence Krachey, 26, and Luke Arthur Bellerose, 27. both of Edmonton, were killed Friday when the car in which they were riding smashed into a city power pole. Nick Swistun of North Battleford, Sask., died Saturday when the two-truck in which he was a passenger slid into a CNR train on the outskirts of his hometown. RCMP are investigating the death of Carol Kennedy. 22. of the Little Pine Indian Reserve near North Battleford. She was found dead Saturday morning. Police said she apparently died from exposure while attempting to walk to shelter. COALDALE Lethbridge County ratepayers Saturday joined the growing ranks of those who would just as soon see the biggest fertilizer plant in the world go somewhere else. The Committee for an Independent Canada, the Lethbridge Metro. NDP Association and the Federal Liberal Association of Alberta have already voiced opposition to the establishment of the plant which is supposed to locate within 20 miles of Lethbridge. Ratepayers at the annual Lethbridge County meeting here went on record opposing the location of the plant in the county, with many people saying the plant shouldn't be built in Southern Alberta at ail. Reeve Dick Papworth said he doesn't expect the anhydrous ammonia fertilizer plant will be built anywhere that it was just another case of an announcement of a large industry moving in followed by silence and no construction.

An unsuccessful attempt was made to open the office safe. A narcotics drawer was opened and several vials of drugs, including pemerol, cocaine, morphine and methadone. were taken. About in change was also taken from the pharmacy. Police are also investigating the theft of from the cooler of the Plainsman Hotel bar. The money, Saturday night's take, was locked in the cooler when the bar closed. The cooler was found unlocked early Sunday morning. Another Lethbridge organization is opposing the establishment of a huge fertilizer complex in Southern Alberta. Mark Sandilands. chairman of the Lethbridge chapter of the Committee for an Independent Canada says a letter has been sent to Alastair Gillcspie. federal minister of industry, trade and commerce, calling for an investigation into the plant proposed by Alberta Ammonia Ltd. Mr. Sandilands said since the plant will be controled by a foreign company, it violates the spirit of the Foreign Investment Review Act He said the plant would bring little benefit to Canada because of its consumption of huge amounts of natural gas and water, air pollution and a small number of jobs compared to the capital investments required. Lethbridge Liberals and members of the NDP have also expressed opposition. But Reeve Dick Papworth, who launched the move in school committee to cancel SASAA membership, told the meeting SASAA doesn't use professional bargaining agents either. He said he felt the county could do a better job .of negotiating with its own teachers. There was general criticism of past ATA wage settlements, with several ratepayers saying teacher salaries are too high. County councillors expected to hear some complaints at the meeting about their decision to buy a lot in downtown Lethbridge as the site of a proposed administration building and their expectations were correct. Rogers Davis, a former county councillor, said the county has lost it's autonomy since moving it's offices into the city. County affairs are now run by the City of Lethbridge, he claimed. He also complained the city charged county council too much money for the property, although several other ratepayers countered that the lot could probably be sold for much more than- the paid" last fall. Ratepayers supporting the motion to build the administration building in Picture Butte said the town is the geographic centre of the county and that it would be better to build outside the city. But Coun. Steve Slemko said most county residents do all their shopping and business in Lethbridge and that the city is really the centre of the county. He said that with Coaldale and Picture Butte the main towns in the county, the choice of Lethbridge as county seat avoided a situation where the two communities would be fighting over which town was to get the county building.
