Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Moonlighting regulation haunts college faculty By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer Sometimes an old regulation hidden for years in the jargon of an employer- employee contract can suddenly be brought back to haunt the employee. Just ask a few faculty members at the Lethbridge Community College. They thought their time after school hours was their own to do what they pleased until they attempted to moonlight. Then out came an old college hand- book and a regulation that doesn't per- mit moonlighting. The new college handbook in circula- tion does not include the regulation governing moonlighting, but since the regulation has never been rescinded by the LCC board of governors it is still applicable. The moonlighting regulation does provide faculty members with the op- portunity to accept contract or con- sulting work if it is for their own self- betterment and receives the approval of the LCC president. And according to a few faculty members Dr. C. D. Stewart, LCC president, has turned thumbs down on moonlighting outside the college. Dr. Stewart is attending a conference of college representatives in Saskatchewan and was not available for comment, but the fact that faculty members aren't allowed to moonlight outside of the college was confirmed by a member of the college's administra- tion department. Faculty members are permitted to moonlight at the college for a max- imum of five hours a week in the LCC continuing education evening program. Bob Babki, chairman of the LCC board of governors, said Wednesday that if the faculty wants the moonlighting regulations changed, they should make a presentation to the board of governors. "I wouldn't have much objection to it (moonlighting) as long as their work at the college isn't he said. He didn't know LCC faculty weren't permitted to moonlight and suggested "it is strange that we wouldn't allow them to moonlight." Any policy changes would have to be adopted with caution because people have been known to abuse the oportunj- ty to moonlight, he said changes in their field of instruction and one of the best methods of doing this is to work part-time in industry related to the program they teach. A faculty member told The Herald it is as necessary for some instructors to better their teaching capabilities by working in a related work field as it is for others to improve their teaching skills by attending evening courses at the university. Many instructors in the evening con- tinuing education programs at LCC have full-time jobs outside the college. One faculty member suggested the moonlighting regulation should be dropped because it is impossible to en- force it equally to all people The president operates a game farm and some faculty members have farms and other revenue interests, he says. "Where do you draw the The college administration has no ob- jections to a faculty member attending evening courses at the University of Lethbridge, a faculty member says. Some of the faculty members have found they need to keep in touch with District The Lcthbridge Herald Local news Second Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Thursday, October 18, 1973 Pages 17-32" Freedom ERVIN Arnold Lemke, 8, of 1619 Scenic Heights and Joker travel together on the edge of the coulees for a bit of exercise. Lack of men, equipment could delay gas lines Young snowmobile drivers may be allowed to solo By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer A severe shortage of men and equipment will delay for at least one year installation of natural gas lines in rural Southern Alberta. Al Stanford, regional co- operative development officer for the Alberta Department of Agriculture, said if enough labor and equipment was available six natural gas co- operatives could be fully operative this fall. About miles of pipe could be laid. "With the present situation of few men and machines, we'll be lucky if the natural gas co-ops are in operation by next he said. Under a provincial govern- ment policy, rural Albertans are encouraged to form co- operatives for the purpose of getting natural gas to hamlets, villages, towns and farms. Figures show about one fifth of all Albertans do not have access to natural gas. The first natural gas co-op was set up in 1964 and 37 of the 46 co-ops now operating in Alberta were established since 1967. When Mr. Stanford took over his position in Loss of special DREE status 'no great worry9 Southern Alberta's loss of special status under the federal department of regional economic expansion program will not greatly affect Lethbridge, says city economic development officer Dennis O'Connell. Mr. O'Connell said the DREE grants, which were initiated by the federal government in 1970 to spur in- dustrial development in specially -designated areas of the province, have certainly accomplished their purpose as far as the city is concerned. "DREE has been important in several developments in Lethbridge, but it is only one of the tools available to Mr. O'Connell said. "There have been a number of major developments on which it has had no effect at all." It was not involved, he said, in attracting the Palliser Distillery here, which is the largest industry to come to the city in recent years. Neither did it count in bring- ing the university and Woodwards to the city. "It's a very useful Mr. O'Connell said, "but if we ourselves had not been aggressive we would not have achieved the results we did." Mr. O'Conneil was com- menting on an announcement Tuesday by Intergovernmen- tal Affairs Minister Don Getty that under a new agreement with the federal government likely to go into effect by the end of the year, the entire province will be eligible for the development grants rather than just Southern Alberta and the Lesser Slave Lake region. Hog plant gets no aid Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON The Alberta government has provided no financial assistance for construction of a giant hog processing plant proposed for Taber and the plant is not exempt from control by the Hog Marketing Board, Hugh Homer, minister of agriculture, said Wednesday. Lethbridge, there were 13 natural gas co-ops in Southern Alberta. There have been five more established in the past year and meetings are being held in Vulcan, Claresholm and Milk River to establish others. "But with the problems getting contractors to lay the buried pipe, it is going to be a long drawn-out said Mr. Stanford. "The Triple W Gas Co- operative at Wrentham has been assured that 20 miles of pipe will be laid this fall, adding about 30 more farmers to the list getting natural gas- He said that even with the move to more co-operatives, about three quarters of Southern Alberta and about two thirds of the population don't have natural gas ser- vices. This area is serviced by propane, oil, and in some cases, wood for cooking and home heating. Any area wanting to get the natural gas should contact Mr. Stanford at the Lethbridge regional agricultural office at the Lethbridge Community College. The first active steps in getting the service is to form a co-operative. Then the provincial department of telephones and utilities has to okay a franchised area for the co-op that will protect the natural gas selling outlet from other companies or gas salesmen. Two thirds of all farmers and urban residents within the co-op's franchised area must sign up for the service. The cost to residents of hamlets, villages and towns is about said Mr. Stanford. The installation costs to farmers is equalized with the fanner responsible for the first and the provincial government contributing up to in the form of a grant. The provincial government has also formed a crown cor- poration called Gas Alberta which buys natural gas from transmission companies for resale to the cooperatives. This equalizes the price of natural gas to the users. Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON The province is considering changes in snowmobile regulations this fall to allow younger drivers to drive the vehicles unaccompanied. The changes in rules propos- ed by the department of highways and soon to be studied by the cabinet would Crop damage payment now Farmers are now eligible for up to per acre for crops damaged by water fowl. An amendment to the Wildlife Act raised the max- imum damage payment to from in light of increased values for crops, said Morley Barrett of Lethbridge, wildlife biologist for the Alberta Department of Lands and Forests. Mr. Barrett said fanners whose crops are damaged by water fowl can apply for com- pensation through a special fund raised by the first of the wildlife certificate all hunters must buy. retain a requirement that drivers under 14 years must be under the supervision of an adult. But the older driver would no longer be required to ac- company the youngster on the vehicle. The changes are be- ing proposed partly in response to new models of snow vehicles now coming on the market. They are smaller than present versions and designed to seat only one youngster. Insp. "Bill West of the city police traffic division says he does not object to lowering the age for snowmobile operators. "No way would I go along with it if they were allowed to drive on public property, or where the public has he said. Places where snowmobiles are allowed, such as certain trails in Indian Battle Park, would be too congested and therefore too dangerous for younger drivers, Insp. West said. Snow vehicles will still not be allowed on any provincial highways or road allowances this year, a spokesman said. It is now in the hands of local authorities to decide what use the vehicles can make of roads under local control. Gov't approves ski resort plan By AL SCARTH Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON The Environment Conservation Authority has approved a Castle Mountain Resort Ltd. proposal to develop Westcastle as the skiing site for the 1975 Winter Games But the authority, after a month of public hearings on land use and resource development in the eastern slopes of the Rockies, recommended that further expansion be deferred until an overall plan for land use is completed. Tabled in the legislature Wednesday by Bill Yurko, minister of the environment, the first interim report of the authority on use of the slopes stated: "It is recommended that such approvals be given to Castle Mountain Resort Ltd as this will enable it to fulfill the requirements for the 1975 Winter Games "It is recommended that the department of lands and forests and the department of the environment assure, in part through impact studies on proposed layouts, that minimum en- vironmental damage be incurred. "It is further recommended that approval for the remain- ing portions of the expansions proposed for Westcastle be deferred until the general recommendations for the eastern slopes are completed." The authority also gave its blessing to White Spruce Lands Co Ltd of Lethbridge to develop a seasonal community at the edge of the Crowsnest Forest Reserve near Beaver Lake and Castle Falls Covers acres The company proposed development of tourist accommoda- tion and recreation facilities on a site adjacent to the Westcastle road and costing more than million over the next few years. It was proposed as a model of a planned seasonal communi- ty with cluster and small village-style construction reserving as much open area and wilderness as possible Some of the land would be developed with the balance remaining largely in its natural state with trails and protected areas for access. It would also continue as a working ranch and timber production area As White Spruce is on privately held land and to the ex- tent that the use of privately held lands is the authority said development should proceed in consultation with the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission "It is further recommended, to the extent that adjacent Crown lands are proposed for use, that associated approvals be deferred until general recommendations on land use and resource development in the eastern slopes are the authority said Castle Mountain Resort Ltd had proposed an expansion of the existing ski area into a year-round recreation resort. The project on an 80-acre site in the Crowsnest forest was estimated to cost 3 million over three years Winter Games plans The company listed the following developments at the site as necessary to handle the Winter Games: The developments should harmonize with total develop- ment plans. Access from Pincher Creek to the western boundary of the resort area should be upgraded to paved secondary highway standards. Priority should be given to snow removal and sanding to attract spectators to the games. Permanent basic utilities such as telephone and electricity. Development of a new lodge at the site Development of a downhill trail for alpine events. A high-speed chair lift. The downhill trail should be developed on another moun- tain to the west to take advantage of gentle terrain for the skiers of lower ability. Grooming and widening of the giant slalom and slalom ski slopes. Sprinkling system for the slalom course, hut facilities, temporary trailer facilities, some on-site accommodation, press facilities.

The group, which now con- sists mainly of parents who. have children with hearing disabilities, decided to go past its initial objective of helping school children and include anyone with a hearing han- dicap. Marion Johnson, of the Society for Hearing Han- dicapped in Calgary, told the group they must also press for facilities to find preschoolers with hearing handicaps. "You have to get the medical people on the ball to find young children with hear- ing loss there are nine recognized in grades one to nine now in Lethbridge. There must be more below that "These children must be helped before they start school." Mrs. Johnson said. Mrs. Johnson was part of a three woman delegation from Calgary which attended the meeting to outline what has been done in Calgary. There now is a lack of diagnostic facilities throughout Southern Alberta including Calgary where hearing can be checked. The Calgary society is "pounding" at the provincial government to make these available to everyone, This is an area where the newly-formed Lethbridge group can become involved, she said. Fred Cartwright, director of the public school board's special education services which includes the education of Jieanng handicapped children agreed with the Calgary speaker. "Facilities for the deaf in Lethbridge are practically non-existent Lethbridge needs an organization which will bring the need for hearing services to the attention of the he said. The organization decided it would find the exact needs and priorities in helping both adults and children with hear- ing handicaps by forming a committee. The committee will present the needs before the constitu- tion of the group is written. Newana Maslen, chairman of the meeting, said they would approach more hearing handicapped adults to attend the Nov. 21 meeting rather again focusing on parents of hearing handicapped children ;
