Steep forest road repairs rejected By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor CLARESHOLM Dwight E Tuttle of the Nanton dis- trict Wednesday lost another round in his three-year fight to get the Willow Creek MD school bus up a steep hill with safety. Highways engineer T. D. McGreer of Lethbridge said improvements to a steep forestry road 15 miles southwest of Nanton would cost about Mr. McGreer was speaking to the Willow Creek MD coun- cil and the council decided it was too costly and that Mr. Tuttle's 13-year-old and his son-in-law's eight and 11-year- old children would to walk about a mile to the bot- tom of the hill. Herald- District Garden plot project ends initial year A harvest festival rounded off the first year of a garden- ing project designed to "renew city dwellers contact with 40 miles south of Calgary. The "family 10 acres of garden plots sur- rounded by 310 acres of rolling countryside, is a project started last spring by Dave Smith and Jack Shier. Families rented space at the site for the gardens they would not have a chance to grow in the city. In addition to traditional vegetables, project par- ticipants grew watermelons, cantelopes. celery, vine- ripened tomatoes, garlic and sunflowers. At the end of the season many of these amateurs harvested worth of vegetables. The idea arose from Mr. Smith and Mr. Shier's desire to encourage people to get out of the city for a few days dur- ing the summer and to help Alberta become more self- sufficient in vegetable produc- tion. Mr. Smith is a professional engineer who grew up on a farm in the Calgary area. Mr. Shier owns and farms the land on which the project is' located. The garden plots range in size from 25 by 50 feet, which rents for by 50 feet, and 50 by 100 feet, The cost of the water from the 'irrigation system is for those who want to use it. The Alberta department of agriculture points out a 50 by 100 foot plot is large enough to supply all the vegetables used in a year by an average Cana- dian family of four. The family garden projects makes no pretence of being a camping site or tourist attrac- tion, Mr. Smith says. There is no electricity, telephone, drinking water or overnight facilities. He feels the simple and primitive atmosphere is part of the value of the project. Participants are not allowed to use power equipment such as garden tractors, portable generators, or lawn mowers. Herbicides are also banned. The idea of garden plots for use by city people is not new. Vacant lots were rented out in Calgary for vegetable growing 25 years ago. They were com- mon in Canada 50 years ago and are very popular in Speed limit bylaw held CLARESHOLM (Staff) The Willow Creek MD will wait for a month before giving final approval to a request by the Nanton RCMP to raise the speed limit south of Nanton from 30 to 50 miles per hour. Coun. Jim Lowe said there is considerable traffic on to Highway 2 from an in- tersecting avenue. Reeve George Whitehead advised only two readings be given to the bylaw to allow time for citizens to express their opinions. DIET'S IMPORTANT!

OPEN HOUSE at CHATEAU ISABELLA In 14 miles west, 4 miles south of Cardston SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13th, 2 to 9 P.M. Europe. The demand for gar- den plots in Ottawa, which has a similar project, far out- strips the supply. Mr. Smith says he is looking for more land to establish future plots. "Having too many plots in one place would be profitable but it would defeat the pur- pose of the project, which is to provide a place where people can get away from crowds and he adds. Overtime is paid reluctantly CLARESHOLM (Staff) The Willow Creek MD is now paying overtime, but doesn't want, for shop employees working a nine-hour day Mon- day to Thursday and eight hours Friday for a 44-hour week. A new board of industrial relations regulation says anything other than construc- tion and maintenance of roads must be based on an eight- hour day. Overtime pay started in the MD when the regulation came into effect on an eight-hour day. The MD will shorten the work day. Starting time will still be 7 a.m. Old school put to use CRANBROOK (Special) The former St. Eugene Mis- sion Indian residential school, just outside St. Mary's Indian Reserve, will be used to train 65 retarded children under the possible management of the Kootenay Society for Han- dicapped Children. Don Bingham, director of human resources program for the provincial government, says, however, that a local board from the more im- mediate area is preferred for management. The three-storey, concrete block building, with red tile roof, has extensive land- scaped grounds and out- buildings and a beautiful loca- tion along St. Mary's River. It was vacated when the federal Indian Affairs Depart- ment policy ruled integration of Indians into provincial education. Formerly it had stressed in- dustrial arts, farming and domestic occupations, and was equipped for these skills. Councillor Jim Lowe said the expenditure would use up all his allotment for road im- provements in the sub- division. The highways engineer said this kind of money could be better spent on rounding out sharp corners on roads that effect everyone in the sub- division. Meanwhile, the forestry road that joins the Coulee Road and the Ridge Road back into Chain Lakes remains too steep for a school bus to climb in winter. "If you start up there and spin out you don't know where you are going to land says Mr. Tuttle. He wants the MD to put in 27 feet of fill (the council says 25 feet) at the bottom of the 18 per cent grade and cut 10 feet off the top of the hill. "The school bus won't be able to get up and down this winter and we're worried about our he says. Not involved are Erwin Fisher's two girls. John Fleming's four children, and. William Wilbern's boy. These neighbors won't allow their children to get on the school bus until it has come back down the hill from Mr. Tuttle's place. Mr. Tuttle says their kids would have to walk a rnile and the councillors think it amounts to about three- marters of a mile. Did you ever try to walk up a hill that steep in asks Mr. Tuttle. He says snow drifts, com- bined with the hill, forced their children to miss 13 days of school two winters ago. He says he started the fight to cut the hill down three years ago. "I got up one petition with 14 names of people actually using that road all the time." His last petition had 54 names of people who had travelled the big hill. He says Coun. Lowe told him he won't do any work on the road this year, next year or ever. So Mr. Tuttle visited Highways Minister Clarence Copithorne. He says the highways minister says the MD has received a good road grant and. at the same time, the province had taken over work on other MD road, eas- ing the MD's road burden. "We have been in here 45 years next spring and they haven't done anything says Mr. Tuttle." However, he says the forestry road was pushed through 15 or 16 years ago. Mr. McGreer says he thinks a new road should be built straight north of John Fleming's place. This would still leave the Tuttle family isolated in winter by the big hill. Mr. McGreer also said the hill problem would qualify for provincial grant money. Meanwhile, council decided the school bus will go to the bottom of the hill when the weather is bad and no farther. Coun. Lowe said he rode horseback to school when he was a boy and council agreed a mile walk is not too far for children, even through snow drifts.
