Whipple water problem: Province offering ,000 to end fued EDMONTON (CP) The provincial government is will- ing to spend to end the water-well feud between Jane Whipple and her neighbors in the Fort Macleod district. The feud began six months ago when Mrs. Whipple, in her 70s, dismantled the well's pump because, she said, an in- vasion by water-hungry Building permits issued COALDALE (HNS) Thir- teen building permits authorized in con- struction here in September, eight homes, two garages and three minor improvements. Total construction value for 1973 to the end of September amounted to sur- passing the figure for the same period last year. ranching neighbors was affecting the performance of her indoor plumbing. The well, dug by the federal government during the Second World War, is located on land owned by Mrs. Whipple. The neighbors formed the Fort Macleod Water Haulers' Co-operative, flirted with the possibility of expropriation proceedings, then decided to drill their own well. That well struck water but unfortunate- ly also reduced the water level in Mrs. Whipple's well, forcing her to siphon for supplies. Thursday, Environment Minister Bill Yurko said the province is prepared to spend to repair Mrs. Whipple's well so that both she and her neighbors can have water. Experts say Mrs. Whipple's well is leaking and needs repairs before water could be pumped into her home. Mr. Yurko said a final decision has yet to be made but expressed hope the well could be repaired before winter set in.

Senior folk find new home a delight By VERN DECOUX Crowsnest Pass Bureau BLAIRMORE Realization of a dream for many Crowsnest Pass residents came true last week when the million dollar senior citizens home and nursing home complex was opened to the general public for three days before the guests and patients will be admitted. More than a thousand visitors passed through the doors of the superbly constructed unit and every assessment offered praised the complex and the services it will provide for the citizens of the area. The complex provides for a total of 66 beds in the com- plex. Forsight of the planners has also made provision for extension of other units in the basement area. There are 28 registered for entry into the nursing home and 38 into the senior citizens home, which includes four couples. A waiting list of over 30 citizens wishing admittance into the complex has been compiled. The decoration in the complex has been completed in very warm colors that lend an air of coziness to every section of the establishment. Private and double rooms have been planned with each room having ample closet space, bathrooms and an out- side picture window over looking a mountain scene. A sauna bath room is provided as well as a whirlpool bath and laundry rooms. A barber and beauty shop will also be operated by local persons. Visiting rooms have been located at several points throughout the complex where the guests can entertain their visitors. A chapel area has also been included near the large spacious colorful dining room. A snack bar that will provide free coffee for residents is located near the dining room. Future plans for serving other beverages are presently being completed. A large sitting room has been located across from the dining room and has been tastefully decorated with a large fireplace and library area. EVEN TEMPERATURES A total of 11 furnaces have been positioned so that even temperatures will be distributed to every portion of the large spacious buildings. All quality furniture has been placed in the complex with color schemes of all furniture selected to match the area they are placed in. Large storage space has been provided in the basement. Each occupant will have a cubicle for their own personal articles. Rest areas along the hallways have been provided to allow residents a place to rest or chat with their neighbors rather than having to stand in hallways. Pain- tings and photographs of early days in the Crowsnest Pass have been placed at strategic points throughout the building, and will provide subject for much conversation among the guests. Guests will be admitted into the home this week and an official opening will be held later this fall. Impressed Ceciai Larbaiestier, former Blairmore town secretary-treasurer, and Mrs. A. Gillis, former ass- istant in the same depar- tment enjoy a visit with their friend Mrs. Jean Tucker (standing) during an inspection tour. The trio admired the new fac- ility and expressed happ- iness for many other area residents.
