Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD _ Wednesday, September 16, 1970. In My Opinion By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Staff Writer JJOW MANY TIMES lately have you heard this familiar phrase? "Lethbridge is dead, there is nothing to do." For someone looking for all night carousing in the streets and dancing every night maybe Leth- bridge is behind but the number of clubs and ac- tivities available is varied. I know so many people who are so busy that they hardly ever have time for an evening in front of the television without sewing as well or having coffee with a friend without having something specific to ask or talk about. There are over 50 women's organizations listed with the Family Living files of The Herald. These are not just afternoon tea sessions but groups with many events and programs continuously being worked on and enjoyed. Literally hundreds of other local clubs provide people with the opportunity to relax and play cards sew, dance in square, round, modem or old-time style, participate in outdoor sports, put on fashions shows, discuss intellectual questions, work with looms, plan services for senior citizens, or just enjoy the fellow- ship of others. These clubs cover every age group there is. The Allied Arts located in t h e Bowman Arts Centre offers many courses for people who would like to learn pottery, painting, drama, writing and then there are also clubs located in the centre where this interest can be carried on. For musically interested people there are not only many city choirs and bands to participate in, but the Yates Centre is continually booked for con- certs and recitals of many styles. The recreational areas in the city are ever ex- panding and the entertainment centres are growing just as fast as the patronage requires it. Also Sunday movies are obtaining a large patronage besides other Sunday activities. In my opinion there is only nothing to do for people who don't want anything to do. And for them, well maybe we will get all night parties in the streets, who knows. 98c SALE 98' Earrings, Necklaces, China ware, String of Pearls, Leather Straps, Men's and Ladies' Nylon Bands If It's In Town It's DOWNTOWN at SANDY'S JEWELLERY D.B.A. MEMBER-FREE PARKING SATURDAY "304 on the Second Floor to Serve Yoi1 "lore" UPSTAIRS AT 304 5th ST.

For reasons of enforcement or for safety? If it's the latter, nearly 100 Leth- bridge and district citizens are aking their lives in their hands daily at a lonely stop sign lead- Jig from the west side site of the University of Lethbridge. In one recent polling by The Herald, 87 cars passed the stop sign hi question in the space of 10 minutes from p.m. to p.m. just as workmen at the site were leaving for the day. Of the 87 cars, 44 failed to make any effort to stop for the sign. In tabulating the numbers of if even token attempt to stop was made, the car was classified as having stopped. Also passing in this time period were three motorcycles, and one bus. The bus and one bike stopped, the other two >ikes cut across a field by- passing the sign completely. The sign has been a subject of controversy since its incep- ion last year. Situated on the road leading from the new U if L campus site, it joins with Highway 3A to return traffic to the city or to Highway 25 to Picture Butte. Because of the lowered vehi- cular traffic on the -highway, and the number of cars on the road in a short time, drivers are not obeying the stop sign whether making the right turn to tire city or the left hand turn to Highway 25. When land was. annexed to the city by the county last year, the road had already been built with its awkward' loop leading across the CPR railroad intersection. 'Hie road was designed by local architects, and approved by department of transport and department of highways offi- cials. While the city has right-of- way on the road, neither the stop sign nor the railroad inter- section are within the city joundary as set out by the Local Authorities Board deci- sion made in November, 1969. Annexation extends from the south side of Highway 3, down east side of Highway 25, cuts across the top of Highway 3A and the railway tracks. The annexation order did not include the paved section of the J-amil y Citizen Committees Named To Hear Assistance Appeals EDMONTON De- partment of Social Development lias released the names of .lembers the Citizen Partiei- ation committee which will ear public assistance appeals.

Of the approximately families on public assistance in Alberta, only fever than 20 ap- peals have been lodged yearly. These appeals were formerly made to the Public Welfare Commission which has now been disbanded. The appeals committees are part of the provincial depart- ment's program' to involve the .community in its own problems and to gain feedback from the community on the department. Regional board members are expected to be named within the next month.

J. Lane of Bow Island. HAIR CLOGS DRAIN LIMERICK, Ireland (AP) Long haired visitors to this city's municipal swimming pool have been ordered to wear ba- lling caps. "The pool had to be said a city engineer, 'because the filtering system is clogged up with great masses of mman hair." But just how long s long: This wasn't answered in the order, I interim road, nor the offending stop sign, nor the railway inter- section. Therefore any accidents oc- curing at these two intersec- tions, or patrolling of this area, would be under the jurisdiction of Uio RCMP not the Leth- bridge city Police. Cpl. Ed Cook of the RCMP's traffic division said the RCMP was aware of a traffic problem but did not consider the corner to be hazardous since the traf- fic was light on Highway 3A at this point. "We're watching it, though, and we do patrol the area. "So far there's no other traf- fic on that road. It'll be a dif- ferent situation when the uni- versity opens up to more traf- fic." He suggested that a yield sign might be more appropriate at the corner since the stop sign was not serving its pur- pose. The RCMP's responsibility to iaw enforcement ends across he road from the stop sign on ,he east side of Highway 3A. "If the interim road had been left straight as originally sug- jested the road would then lave been within the city boun- he said. "That was con- sidered to be unsafe because of the cutbank in the railroad bed, and the loop was put in. "The stop sign is in plain view of the oncoming traffic, however, and if motorists are ignoring it it isn't because they can't see it." He indicated that violators can usually be found on that particular stretch of road when a patrol is in the area. Cpl. Cook said another inter- section which causes concern is at the junction cf Highway 4 and 5 on Scenic Drive. "We'd like to see a traffic light installed there. The traf- fic gets so heavy with college and university traffic that an officer is often needed to di- rect traffic." The intersection and the v'Oi side of Scenic Drive is under the jurisdiction of the RCMP and the side of Scenic Drive is that of the city police. Theoretically a head-on col- lision involving both sides of the street would involve boih law enforcement agencies. Obviously a boundary must go somewhere but down the middle of a road seems to pre- sent its own special problems. RISK EXISTS Meanwhile the traffic crosses the stop sign on Highway SA hi spurts, taking whatever risks it does. No one in the area appear! happy with the paved loop or the interim road, not police officials nor the Lethbridge and District Safety Council, nor nearby farmers who use the road regularly. And the railroad crossing? That's another story in itself.
