Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE lETKBRIDOE HERAID Friday, Soplembsr 1, Permission to establish a I Volvo sales lot at 538 Cth Ave. S. was refused this week by the siunicipal Planning Commis- sion. The application had been ta- bled last week to get a legal interpretation on whether the property could still be classi- lied as automotive. Since property had previ- ously been a car sales lot, with- in the past 11 months, the com- mission was left to decide if the application in question, (rom Lonsdale Mercury Com- pany, was submitted within a reasonable length of time. The zoning bylaw states if a business in operation before the bylaw was passed does nol conform to zoning standards, a similar business cannot con- tinue on the property once the first business moves off the property. There is no specified linn limit in the bylaw within which a new similar business can be legally established. WUl'iam Helton, 0 1 d m a n River Regional Planning Com mission liaison officer, said th MFC would be "asking for Iron ble" if it approved the applica iloa. The trouble would come fror a trailer sales dealership which moved onto the proper! ut was told by the city the usiness was there illegally, Ir. Helton said, 'frailer sales re also classified under an au- omotive category. The commission could nol ow say it is legal for another utomotive business to cstab- ish on the property, Mr. Helton aid. Lonsdale Mercury can appea lie decision or apply to city council to have the property re- zoned. On other business, an appli- cation from Bullock's Auto Body Ltd. to establish a repair garage at 509 6th Ave., adjacent o the Lonsdale property, was also refused. Tlie business has been illegal- ly m operation there since March, Mr. Helton said. A service station is allowed on the property but the zoning bylaw definition ot service sta- tion does not allow for repairs. Alderman Bill Kergan sug- gested every service station in the city does repairs and should therefore he declared illegal under the terms of the zoning bylaw. The commission approved a bandstand and park area for Ihe exhibition grounds and a warehouse office structure for Oliver Industrial Supply Ltd. at 226 3Gth St. N. let additional The flat-rate pay hike an- nounced for RCMP earlier this week will mean the availability of about an additional to the economy of Lethbridgr and district. A Lethbridge HCMP official said the extra available money was based on an estimate of the announced raise which will give officers ETid constables an additional per year and an addi- tional a year before taxes and "None of us are sure when the raise, retroactive to April 1, will be paid us and we're not sure how much it will mean to us next year. McDonnell's HAMBURGERS ARE The raise Is intended to for overtime work and ex- penses incurred by force mem- bers which were not previously he said. "When we received the telex message announcing the pay in- crease it concluded with an an- nouncement that more informa- tion was to follow we'll just havs to wait to EEC it all he said. The only thing known for sure is the RCMP may expect a raise and a cheque for the ret- roactive part of the raise, but they aren't certain when it will be received, or how much it will moan to them in additional pay starting April 1, i972. "Starting April 1, 1973 all members of the force will re- ceive an overtime pay, but no one knows how much it will be or how it will be the source said.

BE TEMPORARILY LOCATED 323-7th STREET SOUTH (NEXT TO FRANK WAtKER'S) PENDING COMPLETION OF PERMANENT OFFICE QUARTERS 519 7th STREET SOUTH Hobby turns to profit There's money in garbage The journalism course at the Lethbridge Community College has a "new look" this fall as a result of a summer face-lift- ing operation. The revamping came- after the resignation of the instruc- tor and a decision by the Board of Governors that tho coarse was faltering. Of the 13 stu- dents who started the course last fall, only seven remained at the end of the first semester. "We arc making the journa- lism program said Werner Schmidt, academ ic vice president of LCC. The new program has two lasic differences. One of the major changes ii hot there will be no journal sm instructor. A large chvmk of the teaching will be done by newspaper people through o u southern Alberla. Their parlici mtlon will be organized by a journalism co ordinalor wh will also assume part of th teaching load. CO-ORDINATOR The co ordinator's main jo will be to work with the Indus try, organizing lecture sched ulcs, job placements and othe related duties. "There will be much less en phasis on classroom work, e pecially in the second year, said Mr. Schmidt. "We want get our students working in( various newspaper o f f i c es where they can find out first- hand what its all about." Another significant factor in the new course is that repre- sentatives ot the newspaper in- dustry in southern Alberta played a major role in its de- velopment. TOO PROTECTED "They indicated what changes they felt should be made. This is why we feel it is now a contemporary said Mr. Schmidt. Mr. Schmidt said the new course should turn out people who are immediately employ- able in any newspaper opera' lion in southern Alberta. The previous environment was nol realistic, he added. It was much too protected. The new approach appears to be already paying dividends. Applications for the first year ave reached 28 compared with reason that the appointment 1 ___ Mr. made earlier, Mr. last year. Tlie college expects the new Schmidt explained, was that o ordinator to be appointed course outline was just recent- within BILL MUNDELL BOB HANNEN Mundell retires Bill Mundell, branch manag- er of the lioyal Trust Co. in By GREG McINTYRE Herald Staff Writer An Ottawa rouple has jump- ed on the ecology bandwagon by creating and selling "art rom found material" re- cycled garbage. Marnie and Fraser Caldwell were in Lethbridge with their travel trailer lull of their work Wednesday on a cross-Canada .wo-month promotion tour.
