H will be officially opened Sunday at 2 p.m. in ceremonies attended by government, RCMP, Indian and historical society officials. Former lieutenant-governor Grant MacEwan will be the guest speaker. The viewpoint is the first such display to be con- structed in the province. It was built under the auspices of the Heritage Sites Service, a branch of the department of culture, youth and recreation. "There may be more scenic places but there are none more say Dean Clark, director of the service, in explaining why ttie site was chosen. A highlight of the display is the central panoramic representation of the view which visitors to the site see around them. Similar displays at other locations are being considered. The LetHbridgc Herald Second Section Pages 13-20 Lethbridge, Alberta, Saturday, November City agenda heavy with traffic items A number of traffic-related topics will come before city council Monday night. Pedestrian crossings, bus schedules. bicycles, wheelchair ramps and speed zones account for a sizeable portion of council's agenda. Upgraded pedestrian crossings at eight locations by 1976 will be recommended by the civic administration. Five such crossings were to have gone ahead this year but were delayed by shortages of materials, reports I. G. Fraser. acting engineering director. FLASHING LIGHTS The crossings will be con- trolled by amber flashing lights and restricted speed zones to give motorists a better warning to slow down for crossings than is now the case. Mr. Fraser says. The scheme is called a "pedestrian corridor system" and is widely used in Calgary. The crossings affected in 1975 are ones with flashing red lights now in operation, at 3rd Avenue and 17th Street South. 5th Avenue and 21st Street North, 23rd Street and 5th Avenue A North. 10th Avenue and 13th Street South. 2nd Avenue and 17th Street South. In 1976 controls will be in- stalled at 23rd Street and 9th Avenue North. 6th Avenue and 12th Street South and 6th Avenue and 19th Street South. The decision to install con- trols follows a survey of busy city intersections this summer. Meanwhile. Aid. Bill Kergan wants a study to see if traffic lights are needed at 9th Avenue and 13th Street North and 9th Avenue and 23rd Street North. The Original Pensioners Woman Tuber's 'citizen' By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor TABER Sylvia Kin- niburgh was named Citizen of the Year here Friday night for. among other things, help- ing to organize the Taber Lady Lions and the Taber Pioneer Club. Accepting the honor. Mrs. Kinniburgh said simply. "I just enjoyed myself." She told 140 people at the an- nual banquet of the Taber and District Chamber of Commerce at the Heritage Motor "I have had an awful lot of good help." Selected by a committee from nominations from the general public, the winner received a bouquet of roses and a framed certificate. She was introduced by Joan Paradee. Mrs. Kinniburgh has been a Taber resident for 37 years She was instrumental in organizing the Archie Macl.ean Chapter nf the Imperial Order of the Daughters o( Ihc Kmpire She was repent and provincial secretary o! the national magazine for two years She spends hours providing recreation and crafts at the Parkside Manor Senior Citizens" Clearview and has dotialed paintings which the auxiliary raffled to raise money for the oldtimers. "She is .1 true example of Ibe saying you don'1 got older. just heller." said Mrs Paradee. and Senior Citizens Society will present a 46-name peti- tion asking council to extend evening bus schedules to 11 p.m. 'Many of our members do not have cars and find the pre- sent hours very inconvenient for them as there are times when they would like to go out in the evenings and cannot do so with the present arrangements." the society says in its submission. BUS SERVICE Buses make their last run from the downtown between 10 p.m. (routes one. three and five) and p.m. (routes two and But from March to November they leave down- town as early as 9 p.m. (route three) and not later than p.m. (routes two and Routes one and five leave at The transit system says in a report to council an hourly bus service from north to south Lethbridge servicing city medical clinics would cost S69.300 to implement. "This arrangement would not improve the service provided utilizing transfers, says Utility Director OIlie Er- dos. Bicycle paths will also be up for council's consideration. "It would appear that con- siderably more money must be spent on parks to accom- modate some of the recreational aspects of cycling." reports Community Services Director Bob Bartlett... "and that a major review and re-thinking of the bicycle's status as a transpor- tation machine must be un- dertaken." BIKES IN PARKS "It is anticipated that ma- jor park developments will be constructed to permit bicycle use and that some modifications can be made to Henderson Park and Indian Battle Park when the re- design program is under- taken." Mr. Bartlett says. A committee of council members is suggested in another report by City Manager A. Findlay "if city council desires to take definite act ion on im- plementing a bicycle path system." The Lethbridge Council of Home and School Associations will ask council to extend the hours of school zones "to cover the dismissal times of p.m to p.m. in order to protect the Grade 1 students who often leave school early Present speed rest rir! ions in school, zone? are in effect from S a.m. to a.m.. 11.30 ,-j.m to p.m and 3 00 p.m. to p.m. WHEELCHAIR RAMPS A request from the Disabled on the Move organization that all new and renovated sidewalks be equipped with wheelchair ramps will be heard by sJdrrmm.
