Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta station plans Friday, September 7, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAlD 3 TABER (HNS) call letters would be CKTA and the dial slot 1570 kilocycles for a radio station proposed for Tab- er by Hal Brown, manager cf CHEC Radio, Lethbridge. At a luncheon meeting with a number of local businessmen. Mr. Brown said that much of the research and planning for the station has been completed, financial arrangements have been made and technical and supplemental briefs will be pre? seated to the Canadian Radio and Television Commission this winter. Mr. Brown said that no con- struction would take place be- fore CRTC approval is receiv- ed. Land for the transmitter has been purchased immediately west of Barnwell (five miles west of Taber) north of High- way 3, and proposals have been Support fo school NATAL (HNS) .Dr. N. Fahmi of Fernie. president of the Kootenay Society for Han- dicapped Children, recently sought help from the Fernie school district trustees in oper- ating a school for handicapped children. He said his society now runs such a school but those in haiidicaped in Fernie charge of the program do not have educational certification. He requested school board supervision for the school. The board turned the prob- lem over to district supsrin-1 tendent of schools Don Hart- wig, secretary-treasurer Ernie Chambers and the education committee for further study and a recommendation. To welcome made for studio and office ac-j commodation in Taber. j With watts of power ini- tially, the station will have a full circle daytime range from Brocket on the west to Medi- cine Hat on the and from Sunburst. Mont., to the south to Rosemary to the north. The night pattern will be shortened toward the southwest and boradened to the northeast. Starting staff at the new sta- tion will be nine persons, and six hours local programming is planned for the opening. These will be increased as occasion demands. The station should be "on the air" by next fall (1S74) if the application meets approval at j Ottawa. Mr. Brown also advised that the power of CHEC-FM at Leth- bridge would be doubled so that j programming can be received here without difficulty. The radio station application will not conflict with a current j application before CRTC for cable television for Taber, nor with the proposed CXUA satel- j lite station at Lethbridge which will carry ad-free music and educational programs from the j provincial capital.

CRANBROOK (Special) The East Kootenay Regional Hospital District board has BCHIS permission to plan a 27-bed Sparwcod Hospital to re- place the pioneer and obsolete- frame Michel-Natal Hospital. EKRHD wide referendum on financing capital requirements for its Inverinere, Cranbrook, Kimberley. Fernie and Spar- wood Hospitals will be pre- pared, probably late this year, with the Sparwood Hospital the major item. Fernie's new hospital is near- ly complete. Originally set for acute-care beds, it may be cut to GO with Sparwood's 27 bad 22 miles east the unexpected new population centre. BCHIS stipulated close co- operation and liaison, with sug- gestion of a single operating board. A four-bed emergency and treatment centre for Elkford, some 40 miles north of Spar- wood, is probable, but has not been assured by BCHIS. Mini- mum population of is re- quired and this expanding lit- tle "instant" municipality falls short. However the EKRHD board I is so certain of the objective I figure it is willing to back the i interim financing. NATAL (HNS) Highways Minister Graham Lea says the overpass at the Fort Steele turnoff from Highway 3 near Cranbrook will be completed early next month. He was replying to a letter from the Regional District of East Kootenay which noted that the highways department had promised the overpass would be finished before the 1973 tour- ist season. In other business, the RDEK authorized its chairman and ad- ministrator to sign an agree- ment with the City of Cran- brook for some residents of Electoral Area "C" to use the city garbage disposal site, on payment by the RDEK of per capita. Courts of revision were ap- pointed to sit in Fernie. Cran- brook, Kimberley and Inver- mere at 4 p.m. Oct. 1.

Because some of it is within Kimberley's boundar- ies, the department of highways says the city is responsible to maintain it. Sitting as the boaru of the East Kootenay Regional Hospi- tal District, directors approved a capital expenditure of for nioveable equipment for the new Fernie Memorial Hospital. The B.C. Hospital Insurance Service will share the costs. These are above what had been budgeted.
