Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE October One disgruntled landlord's point of view... 'Revenue' suite brings hassles, little profit, sloppy tenants By TERRY McDONALD Herald Staff Writer Duane Gliege flings his arms in the air, his voice getting more and more shrill. "This used to be blue. Look. Now it's a filthy kind of Mr. Gliege, 310 23rd St. S., is a landlord and is explaining why he kept the damage deposit of the tenants who moved out of this basement suite this past week. Leaving the living room, Mr. Gliege points to the kitchen walls. They are a dull, dour shade of yellow. "And these used to be he says. The suite is clearly dingy, and the numerous nail holes in the walls and ceiling indicate the place was well lived in to say the least during the year the middle aged couple lived here. But Mr. Gliege was stretch- ing things a bit, surely, when he claimed he painted the liv- ing room a light blue and the kitchen white a year ago. Detecting doubt on the face of this reporter, he poured some ammonia cleaning fluid on a scrub rag and vigorously rubbed an eight inch strip on the kitchen wall. Ten seconds and some considerable elbow grease later the real color came through. white! "I, painted this living room three years ago. And the paint usi'd in the suite's living room just a year ago was the same stuff from the same gallon he claimed. "Would you believe he asked. Quite frankly, no. At least not if I hadn't seen it. In fact, even now that I have seen it I can hardly believe it, but Mr. Gliege has no cause to lie. The experience has further soured Mr. Gliege and his wife, Diane, on renters. In eight different groups of tenants over four years of renting out four suites, they've grown steadily em- bittered by the hassles of "landlordism." They have already sold one other "revenue house." And this last one is slated to go next year'. "It's been a good investment, though. And it would go on being a good investment (not the rental revenue but the appreciation of the house and property) but the hassles just aren't .worth it. according to the Gliege's. The Gliege's say they sym- patlpe with people who can't find decent rental accom- modation during these days of near zero vacancy rate in the city. But there is another side to that story. Their side. How do you find tenant's wo will treat their accommoda- tion decently? SOUNDED IDEAL "A middle aged couple with no children sounded they said, describing the couple who left the base- ment suite with only a half month's notice. (Mr. Gliege says he doesn't insist on a full month's notice that is provid- ed for in the Alberta Landlord Tenant Act.) Look how they left that place." Mrs. Gliege says. "It's not easy finding good tenants. But we don't want to be too hard on people who haven't got a place to live. I used to live in a basement suite too I can remember what it's like." "Maybe we should rent to people we suspect wouldn't make good tenants. After all, they couldn't be any worse than some "of the people we've had who seemed to be ideal at first." Challenging me, she said, "Why don't you rent this suite for us and you can see how hard it is to look after'your investment and be good landlords too." "Yeah, why don't you be the rental Mr. Gliege says. "I'll charge rent (that's up from the last tenants) and you can keep for your trouble." No thanks.

IZ44-3riAn.SMIft Ptow 327-6070 Poultry specialist lecturing at schools By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer EDMONTON Every junior and senior high school in Alberta and the Northwest Territories offering home economics courses has receiv- ed food promotion material from the provincial poultry in- dustry. Students in Calgary and Ed- monton schools will reap ad- ditional benefits from class demonstrations of uses, methods of preparation and nutritional value of poultry products from Sharon Kristensen, home economist for the provincial turkey and chicken marketing boards. In just one year the poultry industry's program has sent more than recipe booklets to the schools. Mrs. Kristensen said school demonstrations may be ex- panded this year to include Lethbridge and Medicine Hat. As part of lectures at the schools, Mrs. Kristensen shows a film on the poultry in- dustry and often provides students with a taste of deep fried turkey. Promotion of poultry products through schools is a big part of Mrs. Kristensen's jobs, in addition to providing assistance for the consuming public through recipes, booklets and promotional material. She said the public general- ly writes to her about poultry problems, but she is also available for telephone con- sultations. Because of the restricted budget and demands on her time, Mrs. Kristensen feels development of more resource material, including more slides and films, will be the most efficient way of carrying her job to the public. This new material would be added to the main promotional booklets Cook- ing Alberta Chicken and Cook- ing Alberta Turkey and several new recipe pamphlets developed for the marketing boards by Mrs. Kristensen.
