Lower Level PHONE 327-2822 Man successfully appeals jail term for drunkenness A 30-year-old Lethbridge man who appealed a four month sentence for intoxication won his appeal in District Court Friday but was placed on the interdiction list. L. S. Turcotte, chief Judge of the District Court of Southern Alberta, said the appeal would not set any precedent to over ride any decisions made by magistrates in provincial court. William Michael David was charged with intoxication Sept. 4 and Provincial Judge L. W. Hudson adjourned sentencing until Oct. 17 to see how the accused would do. David was arrested again Sept. 18 and sentenced to four months in jail the next day. During that four month period he was to at- tend a program for alcoholics. While it was pointed out in court a person does not have to take the course, David said he would have taken the course but "no one approached me about it." Norm Cowie, of Lethbridge, the regional director for the alcohol and drug abuse com- mission, told the court the program at the Lethbridge Correctional Institute is a 120 hour course, two hours a day and five days a week. He explained what the program tries to do for people who need help, but David's defence counsel questioned the efficiency of the course. "I agree it is a good program and there are people who do need help but you can't help someone unless they want the counsel said. "The man is in jail. Why can't he be in the program without being The defence counsel said the course lasts two hours a day and the rest of the time the man is in contact with other prisoners "who possibly are there under more serious cir- cumstances." David also told the court he would meet with Alcoholics Anonymous and admitted he has a drinking problem. He will be on the interdiction list indefinitely. Coal reserves 'must t eventually be tapped9 Alberta will be neglecting its responsibilities to the rest of the world if it does not develop Rocky Mountain coal reserves, says Charlie Drain, MLA for Pincher Creek Crowsnest. "It would be unrealistic to think that in this little part of the world we can. hold this reserve as a magic island when other people need he says. "Japan won't eat without in- dustrial products to sell. What would the impact be on Canada if there were no coal for the steel industry in On- tario? It must be looked at in terms of the welfare of all Canada." The MLA was commenting on an Alberta Environment Conservation Authority report released this week which recommended restrictions on coal development. no question rehabilitation can be done with proper Mr. Drain said. Conceding there would be '-'interim en- vironmental damages" cover- ing 20 to 30 years, hesaid he is "not prepared to cry havoc that the eastern slopes are go- ing to be destroyed." "But ultimately the people pressure is going to force the development." He said un- sightly strip mines are more efficient and safer than un- derground mines. Seventy per cent of the reserves tapped by underground mines were now untouchable. Vast amounts of Dangerous driving nets man fine remanded to Dec. 20 for a preliminary hearing. Karel C. Roelofs was charg- ed on one count of stealing two heifers and on another count of stealing one cow. Both charges of harboring strays involved cows.

Elford Friday of dangerous driving. He was fined and receiv- ed a one year driving suspen- sion. William Lloyd Stevenson was charged with the offence June 28 following an auto acci- dent eight miles south of Lethbridge on Highway 4. He appeared in provincial court July 26 and pleaded not guilty. A statement given by the ac- cused to the RCMP after the accident was admitted as evidence at the trial Friday. The statement said Stevenson had consumed two bottles of beer and half a glass of rye and Coke between 7 and p.m. on the evening of the accident. Stevenson said shortly before the accident as he was driving north towards Lethbridge. He was tired, his eyes kept closing and he was looking for a place to pull over. RE-ELECT Cam Barnes Council October 16th Robert Christiansen, a truck driver from Dawson, Minn., testified he followed Stevenson for about 15 miles before the accident happened. "I saw the pickup truck weaving all over the road." Mr Christianson said. Later, from some distance, he said he saw the truck veer into the southbound lane and then the accident occurred. Stevenson was injured in the accident. The driver of the other vehicle, Pamela Jones was also injured. Two passengers in her car were hurt. PENNER'S PLUMBING 1209 2nd Ave. S. Phone 327-4121 coal were wasted in sup- porting tunnels. "One man's life is wortl; a scar on a hillside and I'm not in love with scarring he said. In its report, the authority which has studied the eastern slopes for a year for the provincial government, said aerial surveys and "light ground operations" should be used to explore for coal. It said" government inspec- tion staffs should be beefed up to implement stricter en- forcement of land use legislation. "Known deposits of coal should be declared as future reserves and left undisturbed until, required to service Alberta's the 224 page report said. "The damage and devasta- tion left behind in the process of surface mining the incredible devastation of the mountainside make it possible to wonder why this particular resource is ex- ploited at all." "Surface mining for coal is in conflict with virtually every other use to which the slopes might be the authority said. MOVING? FOX DENTURE CLINIC Est 1922 PHONE327-656S E. s. P. FOX, C.D.M.
