Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 1, 1974 Th2 LETHBRiCGS HERALD 19 RICK ERVIN photo Steaming sugar factory The Canadian Sugar Factories Company plant at Taber stands as a sentinel to the multi-million dollar industry in Southern Alberta that supplies sugar to this province and most of Saskatchewan. The huge piles of sugar beets at the plant will be supplemented during the processing season by beets stored at some of the 14 receiving stations at rural points. These beets are moved to the factories at Picture Butte and Taber by truck and railway. Schools 'should be parent-led' Children belong to parents, not the government or school teachers, the annual conven- tion of the Alberta School Trustees, Southern Alberta zone, was told Wednesday- John Boras, the executive representative of the zone, told about 90 trustees and superintendents attending the Lethbridge convention that they must maintain respon- sibility for the education of children because they have been elected by parents to do so. The department of educa- tion and the Alberta Teachers Association are prepared to take over the responsibility of educating Alberta's children if trustees don't become determined to maintain their leadership role, he said. He believes children will not get the type of education they should receive unless "we parents do it." The school can- not be the extension of the home it should be unless parents have a direct input through local representatives. School boards must also in- form the government that the tax money they collect is not the province's money. "It is our he in- sisted. "As long as we let them think it is their money, they will continue to tell us how to spend it." He condemned government regulations that force school boards to devise means of spending money in one par- ticular area instead of spending it in the area of most need. Mr. Boras believes trustees are beginning to exercise their authority and becoming more interested in restoring educational decision making at the local level. To support his statement, he pointed to the record number of candidates who sought trusteeship during the Oct. 16 election in Lethbridge and the number of trustees attending the convention. The 90 persons who attended is believed to be the second largest in the history of Southern Alberta ASIA conventions.

Lethbridge Phone 328-1709 Twenty Bow Islanders to finance onion plant BOW ISLAND About 20 area residents here have gathered together to par- ticipate in a proposed million onion storage and processing plant. Phil Bryant, president of the Bow island Chamber of Commerce, said a small group of interested persons met last week to determine the amount of community sup- port for a request from Bow Island Growers that be raised from the area to pay for a feasibility study required by the province before govern- ment funding will be made available. Dennis and Greg Kazakoff and Robert Taylor of Calgary, the key shareholders of Bow Island Growers, told a public meeting in Bow Island Oct. 4 that they want community participation in the project. The shareholders have proposed to the community that anybody who contributes money at this stage of development will be given the chance to buy shares in the plant at a reduced rate. Dr. Bryant said the list of interested persons and the amount of money they are willing to invest has been sent to the principals so they can contact the Bow Island area residents. Dr. Bryant said the people at the most recent meeting did have some suggestions to make to Bow Island Growers they feel will assure a more successful operation. Bow Island Growers has plans for two sections of land for the plant site and a farm to be run in conjunction with the plant. Dr. Bryant said the local people feel there should be more onion grower participa- tion rather than have the plant grow its own product on one large farm. From a weather and disease point also, the local people feel it would be better to have 20 fields of 20 acres than one large 400 acre field. Several farmers and research officials at the Oct. 4 meeting expressed doubt that the principals could store onions for 10 months to make sales when onions would be highest priced. But since the Oct. 4 meeting, a Bow Island onion grower told chamber of com- merce officials he has no trou- ble keeping onions for seven or eight months with limited storage equipment on his farm. Dr. Bryant said the farmer Home economist speaks COALHURST Marilyn Tatem. district home economist, will speak and show films on nutrition at a meeting of the Coalhurst Kindergarten Association scheduled for p.m. Nov. 6 in the Coalhurst Royal Cana- dian Legion hall. feels Bow Island Growers should have no trouble keep- ing the onions for 10 months.
