Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta
TuMday, Novvmbtr 19, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 B.C. land session expected The Regional District of East Kootenay is expected to meet later this month with the B.C. Land Commission to dis- cuss changes in the regions land reserve map. The meeting follows a re- quest made by the RDEK to Premier Dave Barrett for a meeting with the Commission before the land reserves are officially designated. The region submitted its land reserve proposal to the Land Commission earlier this year. The commission reviews the proposal and has an opportunity to make changes before the reserve is finalized. In the upcoming meeting the RDEK wants the oppor- tunity to see those changes and voice its opinion. A meeting between B.C. Hydro and the RDEK is ex- pected to be called late this month or early in December to discuss a report on the new 500 KV line between the Okanagan and the East Kootenay. The fact finding report, prepared by Hydro con- sultants, explores such areas as engineering, economics, and environmental impact, but makes no conclusions or recommendations. It is not known at this point whether the meeting will be solely between the two authorities, or a public meeting. Dr. Hugh Keenlyside, formerly a top official for B C. Hydro will be visiting the East Kootenay as part of a province wide review of the fire marshal's office. Dr Keenlyside was ap- pointed to head the govern- ment study earlier this year. Most municipalities with fire departments, have their own local fire marshal in the person of the municipal fire chief. The RCMP, however, act as fire marshal in all unorganiz- ed areas. After lodging an official complaint with the B.C. Department of Highways in September for its tardiness in paving part of Cranbrook Air- port Road, the RDEK has congratulated the department for other work. At the October meeting, a resolution was passed thank- ing the Department for its working in paving the access to Wycliffe Regional park. Another vote of appreciation was directed to the district highway managers for their efforts in constructing and maintaining access roads to the 17 garbage disposal sites in the region.

Open house at nursing home FORT MACLEOD (Special) An open house last week at the Parkland Nursing Home here gave neighbors and friends an opportunity to share a cup of tea and visit. It was an opportunity for Anne Guichon and her former neighbor, Dorothy Canning, now a resident of the home, to drink a toast to future happiness. The women's auxiliary to the home served the tea tables and held a bake sale. The proceeds will aid the patients. The occupational therapy department sold articles the patients made during the past year.

Phone 328-3301 CHARGEX MASTER CHARGE blamed for barn fire The Herald' District By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer The instant destruction of a new steel dairy barn at St. Paul by a fire that lasted only a few minutes has been attributed to polyurethane spray on insulation. Dennis Darby, farm struc- tures specialist with the Alberta department of agriculture in Lethbridge, said polyurethane insulating materials are almost twice as effective as most commonly used insulating materials but they are "extremely flam- mable." In the case of the St. Paul fire, the insulation had just been applied on the inside of the steel quonset building when a small fire was spotted at one end. Withing minutes, it had spread throughout the entire building, consuming virtually all the foam insulation as it went. Although the fire burned out almost as soon as it started, all that was left of the barn was a charred, sagging steel shell, said Mr. Darby. He said the owner of the structure saw the fire from his house but couldn't make it to the barn in time to do anything about it. And the fact that he couldn't likely saved his life because of the nature of the foam when it burns. Council approves sale of tracts WILLOW CREEK (Staff) Willow Creek Municipal Coun- cil approved the sale of four lots to Mrs. Karl Bilinsky of Parkland during a recent meeting. She appeared before council to forestall the sale of the lots to another bidder who offered each. She offered each. She needed the lots, she said, because her house is partly on one and her barn, root cellar and well are on the others. Council approved for councillor fees to former councillor Harvey Cherniak for one year's service and a lesser amount to former coun- cillor Jim Lowe. heat build up is tremendous It produces a high quantity of smoke and combustible gases which will quickly suffocate any living creature inside a building even if the fire is small Since some formulations of the foam use isocyanate, the cyandie cynaid cyanide com- pound, the gases can be toxic. Surface coatings, like protective paints, may reduce the "flash" fire hazard but they won't appreciably reduce the danger of fire, said Mr. Darby. The exposed surface of urethane foam can ignite and spread fire extremely rapidly almost explosively. Half inch cement plaster or "fire rated" gypsum board or a similar material covering the exposed surface of urethane foam will usually provide acceptable fire protection Mr. Darby said the new foam insulation materials, particularly polyurethane spray on products, have in- vaded the building industry but people don't seem to have been made aware of the fire and safety hazards connected with the method. He said while claims are be- ing made to the effect that this type of insulation is vir- tually fireproof, it is not Scholastic marks are distributed BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) Larry Pizzey, prin- cipal of the Isabelle Sellon School here, has announced that report cards will be given to students Dec. 2, March 10 and June 27. Teachers will be available for interviews with parents Dec. 9 to discuss students who are not working up to par. Parents are always welcome to make appointments to visit teachers. This can be done by phoning the school secretary. Parents wishing progress reports between regular report coards may request this. Since a number of persons have requested information on probation, Mr. Pizzey advised that school division students who continually break school rules may be placed on probation. If this happens, a student must then display acceptable behavior for at least six weeks.
