Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October LETHDRIDQE Onion storage promoters seek Bow Island owners BOW ISLAND The Bow Island Chamber of Commerce will record names of local per- sons interested in gathering together to fund construction of a million onion storage and processing plant here. Phil Bryant, president of the chamoer, told about 60 farmers and government representatives persons interested in investing in the proposal put forth by Bow Island Growers have 10 days to do so. The three key shareholders of Bow Island Growers, Den- nis and Greg Kazakoff and Robert Taylor of Calgary and George Kazakoff, an advisor combined with Calgary lawyer David McDermid to spell out plans for the onion storage and processing plant George Kazakoff said the initial will be needed to complete a feasibility study needed by the provincial government, to take out op- tions of two sections of land for the plant and a farm to be run in conjunction with the plant and incidental expenses. The men made their plea for money from the community to get local involvement in the plant. They did stress that community involvement was favored by government but if local persons failed to come forward with financial backing, money would be rais- ed from sources outside the Southern Alberta community. The plan as proposed by Bow Island Growers is to build an onion storage plant at a cost of Then with the rest of the two sections of land, 600 acres of field beans and 400 acres of onions will be grown The storage facility will have a capacity of tons, including tons for onions grown by other farmers in the area. Mr. McDermid said the promoters want to retain one million shares in the project. Persons investing early in the project will be allowed to buy another shares for 25 cents each. Once the company has been fully set up, it will then go to the general public in Alberta for another through the sale of shares. The Alberta Securities Com- mission will have the final say on the number of shares that will be retained by the promoters, said Mr McDer- mid. In an hour-long question period following their presen- tation, the question of finan- cing, operation of the plant, construction of the plant and operation of the farm were the main topics. The Herald" District The South outdoors Rules restrict fishing throughout Alberta By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Staff Writer No self respecting angler would want to cheat anyway, but the Alberta government still maintains a wealth of restrictions upon the methods by which fishermen take the province's fish. There are many rules governing the use of the three legally recognized methods of sport fishing in the province: the hook and line, the spear, I, Crowsnest Pass Bureau NEWS-CIRCUUTION-JOBPRINTING VERNON DECOUX, Resident Rep., 562-2149 PUBLIC MEETING COLEMAN, ALBERTA See and Hear GRANT MOTLEY MLA Alberta National Democratic Party Leader Coleman, United Mine Workers Hall Tuesday, Oct. 8th p.m. EVERYONE WELCOME!

"ANY WORE IDEAS ON HOW TO ONE BILLION and the recreational net. Only one line or one rod and line with no more than three single hook lures or one multi- hook lure attached may be used for angling, except when ice fishing. Ice fishermen are allowed three lines or three rods and lines. For classification purposes, a double or treble hook on a common shaft is deemed to be a single hook. To prevent the angler from becoming too indifferent to his sport, there is a rule which precludes anyone from leav- ing his rod and or line un- attended or moving more than 100 feet away from it. Gaffs and landing nets are permitted for landing fish caught by legal methods ex- cept when on a trophy lake. On trophy lakes, the mere posses- sion of a gaff is illegal. Ice fishermen are required to attach a marker which ex- tends two feet above the ice or snow to any rod or line which is in use. The marker must bear the licensee's angling license number. It is illegal to fish through the ice into a beaver pond or flowing water that is fre- quented by trout, Arctic grayling, or mountain whitefish. Environmentalists will be happy to hear that the Alberta government requires anyone engaged in ice fishing to keep the ice surrounding the hole he is using clean of any fish, fish offal, paper, cans, sticks or any other substance. Any sub- stance must be removed from the ice each day and deposited in a recognized disposal area or nuisance ground. Spear fishers are required to possess a special license for the use of spears or spear guns. All spears must be tethered to the spear gun or person operating the spear by a line not longer than fifteen feet and strong enough to withs- tand all tensions within the operating potential of the gun or hand operated spear. Spear fishers, in addition, must display the scuba divers flag, and must not fish in an area more than 100 feet away from the flag. It is also illegal to fish closer than 300 feet from a swimmer or angler or to fish in any lake for which a trophy lake licence is required. Recreational net fishing is legal only under certain cir- cumstances when seasons may be declared to allow it Further details on this matter are available from any Fish and Wildlife Division office. In addition to these very general restrictions, there are a number of specific prohibitions of which fishermen should take note. It is unlawful: To use a bare or unbaited hook or grapnel to catch or kill a fish. To catch or attempt to catch a fish by impaling it on a hook through some part of its body instead of luring the fish to take the hook into its mouth, To use any snares, spears, lights or firearms in the course of fishing with the ex- ception, a special license is issued to permit the use of spears or spear gnus by un- derwater divers.) To use any explosive for any purpose in any waters fre- quented by fish. South In short New station causing trouble BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) Some television viewers in the Ciowsnest Pass area think the new CFCN-TV rebroad- casting station on Bluff Mountain is interfering with CJOC-TV reception on Lethbridge Channel 7. Council has heard reports that some residents here, who were previously getting good CJOC-TV reception on Lethbridge Channel 7, are now getting poor reception with interference and in some cases, loss of sound. They say the new rebroadcasting station muffles the sound from Calgary Frank and Bellevue television viewers are also com- plaining. Blairmore town council has reported these complaints to CFCN-TV and Lethbridge Channel 7 CJOC-TV to see if the matter can be corrected to everyone's satisfaction.

Overhaul being planned for Frank water system FRANK (CNP Bureau) Village residents may soon have good water system and sewer facilities if plans develop successfully. Mayor Jim Horejsi of the village said today that the engineering firm of Underwood, McLellan and Associates is conducting a survey on the value of the ex- isting Gold Creek Water Com- pany which serves about 60 villagers The company has been ordered by the department of the environment to improve water quality by Nov. 1, 1975. Periodically the water in the system becomes turbid, especially in the spring or after heavy rains. The company has been ask- ed to provide sufficient chlormation to make the Log harvest recovers slightly CRANBROOK (Special) The Nelson Forest District sawlog scale recovered somewhat in September from its mid-1974 plummet. Compiled by the B C. Forest Service for East and West Kootenay, the total tally was cubic feet. This is a sizeable increase from 336 cubic feet for the same month last year. Tne largest surge was in lodgepole pine. It went to 3.4 million cubic feet and second place. Spruce was the most sought-after at 3.8 million cubic feet The lodgepole surge is in part due to a program of cutting in the vicinity of large burns in 1973. This is to cope with insect infestation which sometimes follows fires in forests wrfter drinkable. It must provide filtration capable of removing the occasional sur- ges of suspended matter. The department of environ- ment report says 60 samples were taken in June. Forty- three were unfit for human consumption due to bacterial contamination. Mayor Horejsi says the privately owned water com- pany has been offered to the village. Council is awaiting the engineers' evaluation of the system. These findings could deter- mine whether it would be worthwhile for the village to buy the system or to go ahead with a plan to build an entirely new waterworks for Frank. "There is no way we can have everything in shape in the time the department has given says Mayor Hore- jsi. "This is a very serious problem for the village and we, as a new council, will have to study the problem and look at it with an open mind." He says the matter will take one or two months for investigation and study. Mayor Horejsi says the village is the possibility of providing sewer service by connecting into the Blairmore system This system has disposal lagoons south of Frank "Before 'we can get a says Mayor Horejsi, "We must first get a good water system." i L run.
