Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October 12, 1974 THE LETHBRIDOf HERALD Frank Slide rocks still in limbo FRANK (Staff) Mayor Jim Horejsi said Thursday he personally favors preserva- tion of the Frank Slide as a national or piovincial historical site. But if the provincial govern- ment and the Winnipeg Supply and Fuel Company Ltd., which owns 241.1 acres in the main part of the slide area, "don't make a deal and the company says 'we are going to go ahead' thcta anything can happen because it is their he said. Mayor Horejsi says he hopes the province will step in and preserve every pebble, rock and boulder in the Frank Slide. "It's part of our national says Mayor Hore- jsi. The province is fighting a one government battle. The federal government has already taken the stand that the Frank Slide cannot be termed a national historic site because it was a disaster, not an area of great historical im- portance. At the same time, Mayor Horejsi says the Village of Frank owns a piece of the Frank Slide and his council will have to consider its posi- tion in the matter. "We own a piece of the slide on the farthermost west he said Thursday. Another factor is the CP Rail right of way. "Whether this would apply to the CPR right of way is another question, he said. They have a 100 foot right of way through the slide." Would the railway be able to remove rock from its proper- ty? Winnipeg Supply and Fuel Company Ltd. has been waiting eight months for the Alberta government to make up its mind on whether it wants a shrine or a mine on the site. The slide, which crashed off Turtle Mountain, burying the eastern fringe of the town of Frank in 1903, is a major Alberta attraction. The company is willing to sell its 241 acres. The provin- cial government is interested. But how interested? Mine Minister Bill Dickie was not available Thursday for im- mediate comment. John Doole, Winnipeg Supply's general manager, says the world shortage of raw materials prompted, the company to consider develop- ing its property. The company feels it can obtain lime and ex- Gentry Misic NOW ON THE AIR FARM NEWS at ajiL, p.m., p.m. p.m. withVERNKOOP Farm Director SERVICE PARTS ACCESSORIES for most popular models of CHAIN SAWS CHAINS, CUTTING BARS, etc. Solo Remington Homelite Lombard Skil Stihl, Husquavarns John Deere Pioneer Allis Chalmers MOTOR MOWOR 817 3RD AVENUE SOUTH -ETHBR1DGE ALBERTA tra limestone, mine coal and "at a long shot" hit oil in the slide area. His firm wants to do a feasibility study. However, they offered the land to the government "so we don't get expropriated after we spend a lot of money." Meanwhile, the Crowsnest Pass Citizens' Historical Society is spearheading the fight to stop slide development. Members say historical significance far out- weighs any potential economic benefit. Fred Bradley of Blairmore, outspoken historical society president, says vandalism, painting of names and religious slogans in bright red paint on the boulders, has concerned local historians for years. He is thankful the provincial government has blocked attempts to put hamburger stands on the slide. He is disturbed over the fact that the railway hauls rock away for use on construction of roadbeds and bridges. Mr. Bradley says it will be only a matter of weeks before the government buys the slide. But Winnipeg Supply, which hasn't heard from the province lately, is skeptical. Even if developed, the slide will not disappear. MLA Charlie Drain says it would take 100 gravel trucks carrying three tons a load, and making 10 trips a day, some 66 years to remove the debris. B.C. pub applications pending CRANBROOK (Special) Tipplers in the Moyie and TaTa Creek areas will be served closer to home if applications for pubs are approved by Victoria. Margaret Bohn wants to operate "under a general licence" at the Lakeview Hotel at Moyie. Alexander Yanosik seeks approval of his pub plans for the TaTa Creek Lodge. Both have operated under li- quor licences for some time. They have circulated petitions which indicate people in the areas are not opposed to their change in style. With the approval of the Regional District of East Kootenay, they can now make their final applications to Vic- toria. Regulations for general licences, the operation of neighborhood pubs, say seating will be for less than 100 people.

G. M. Flower because it is in a new area being subdivided. Council decided to table the one sale because the new sub- division may have some bearing on it. Mr. Kingston purchased lot 16 on the north side of 21st St., east of 5th Ave. Harvest Homes purchased lots 5 and 7'on the north side of 16th St., east of 5th Ave. Nellie Morden purchased lot 7 on the north side of nth St. which she will trade to Harvest Homes ior one of its new lots, said secretary treasurer Roy White.

CLARESHOLM (Staff) Willow Creek Municipal District utilities and develop- ment control officer Jack Derochie Wednesday was authorized by council to at- tend a seminar Nov. 6 and 7 at Edmonton. A 'proposed subdivision of a 61 acre parcel near the Oldman River bridge on Highway 3 near Monarch was rejected by council because it doesn't conform .with the MD's development control bylaw. Three 10 acre plots are proposed on the' bill Coun- cil decided there is no access for these. The developer could apply again. "It would be an ideal place for a subdivision because the land is not suitable for anything said Mr. Derochie, Reeve George Whitehead agreed. The lower area would'be a camping and recreation spot. Also planned: a market gar- den in the valley area. Said' the development of- ficer: "I don't know where they would come off the highway to come down in there with a camper." .Those who earlier favored natural gas co ops in the MD are now favoring utility own- ed franchise areas, Mr. Derochie told council: One co op faces a court case to "dislodge" the contractor so it can switch to a utility own- ed area, he said. The public utilities board earlier insisted that the MD be divided into separate franchises. Coun. Harvey Cherniak of Stavely said he still favors the idea of having the entire MD in one gas franchise area. Mr. Derochie agreed, "said he proposed that earlier, but now prospective users in various franchise areas in the MD face six different prices in the sign up. Council, in response to Fort Macleod resident Doug Baker's complaint that he saw a dead pig at the Fort Macleod dump and that all dumps in the MD should be posted "dumping of dead animals decided its policy would be that dead animals are tBe "owner's respon- sibility" for pickup for rendering.
