Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Aids tots Mrs. Ronald (Jean) Coombs of Coalhurst, has been a driving force in obtaining a parent child development program for Coalhurst. It will 'benefit Andrew Coombs, 4, right, and many youngsters of the area. Many educationists believe children should start their formal educa- tion at a much younger age than they do now. The ability of tots to learn at four years of age is much, much greater than sup- posed earlier. Parent-child program okayed for Coalhurst COALHURST-John Bonn, director of the Barons-Eure- ka social services and pre- ventive social services, has announced that Health and Social Development Minister Neil Crawford has approved the Coalhurst parent-child de- velopment program. FOR PRESCHOOLERS This is a pre-school pro- gram under the auspices of preventive social services with the province picking up 80 per cent of the net costs and the County of Lethbridge 20 assuming responsibility for the remaining 20 per cent. The program, which is not to be confused with an offi- cial kindergarten, has had active parent participation in the initial organizetional and further parental ac- tivities are anticipated in the future development. The overall organization is in the hands of a steering committee compris ing Mrs. C. DenHoed, chairman; Mrs. C. Watmough, vice-chairman; and treasurer Mrs. Ronald Coombs. BACKS PROJECT J. M. Nicol, councillor with the County of Lethbridge, has supported this project both at the municipal and provincial levels. Members of the steering committee will be available at Coalhurst High School Thursday, May 24, at 8 p.m. for information and also for registration of preschoolers. All-weather airstrips proposed bv Pincher Creek town council PINCHER CREEK (Special) The feasibility of an all- weather airstrip has again caught the attention of mem- bers of the town council. The present grassed landing field northeast of Pincher Creek, which has been operat- ed by W. A. Cook on a hobby basis for many years, has been an invaluable contribution to the area, councillors agree. Air traffic is increasing and an upgrading of the field would be most desirable. The Alberta department of tourism and the department of industry might have money available for an all weather strip. A council committee will investigate the possibility. Mr. Cook will be requested to pro- vide a commitment on the pres- ent facilities before the matter can progress.
