Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta District The LetKbridge Herald Local News Second Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Tuesday, September 17, 1974 Pages 11 to 20- New faces expected on Lethbridge county Two County of Lethbridge councillors are undecided about filing their nomination papers tomorrow and one is "thinking seriously of retiring." Henry Nummi of Picture Butte, the Electoral Divi- sion 6 member on county council since 1962, wants to call it quits. Miro Tomasta of Coaldale says he's still un- decided whether to run again in the Oct. 16 elec- tion. He has represented Division 2 for 10 years. The rest of council, however, will stand en masse before county voters. Veteran councillor Otto Wobick, Division 5 councillor for 14 years, will run again. Joining him on the hustings are: Reeve Dick Papworth, Division 7; John Murray, Division 1; Jim Nicol, Division 4 and Steve Slemko, Division 3. None of the three county school committee members have said they're not running, but two are still undecided. Eileen Urvold says she will seek to regain the Nobleford seat on the com- mittee. William Vogt of Picture Butte and Peter Retzlaff on Coaldale, both say they're undecided, but are thinking favorably of runn- ing again. Nominations for coucil Four newcomers win CGA nod WALTER KERBEF) photo Dangerous stunt Evel Knievel-like, a youngster hurtles skyward as he launches a small on-off road motorcycle on a dirt pile in a Lethbridge vacant lot. Stunt man Knievel's fizzled exploit launched a craze of motorcycle and bicycle jumping among youths, but the youngsters aren't as well protected as the stunt man. This rider's tennis shoes would not be adequate protection for his feet should his foot slide from the slippery rubber footpegs upon landing. By ANDY OGLE Herald Staff Writer Four newcomers and three incumbents got the Civic Government Association nod before about 100 people at the Yates Centre Monday to contest the aldermanic race in the Oct. 16 civic election. As expected, incumbent Mayor Andy Anderson was nominated the CGA candidte for the chief magistrate's chair. There were no other nominations at the meeting for mayor and to date, with nomination day just one day away, no challengers have appeared to run against Mayor Anderson. But the battle for the eight council seats promises to be lively with the CGA nominations bringing to 14 the number of aldermanic hopefuls. Nominated for council by the CGA were incumbents Cam Barnes, Bill Kergan and Steve Kotch, and newcomers Stan Klassen, Don LeBaron, Tony Tobin and John Gogo. Mayor Anderson and the three incumbent aldermen, sounding almost as if they had all hired the same speech writer, stressed the need for continued planned and orderly growth of the city. The challengers meanwhile focused to some extent on areas they feel the present council has either slipped up on, or neglected. "I'm not particularly happy at the city buying land and selling it at a said Stan Klassen, 30, a partner in City Realty and Insurance Ltd. and a resident of the city for 4% years. He said later he was referr- ing to the Woodward's deal. "They lost approximately Three seek seats on separate board H. G. Poirier and Robert Kolesar will contest the Oct. 16 civic election for positions on the Catholic Separate School Board under the banner of the Catholic Separate School Board under the banner of the Catholic Parents' Action Group. Mr. Poirier. a local postal Society staff walks out The Rehabilitation Society of Lethbridge is seeking replacement staff following a walkout Monday, the society's executive director said today. John Henderson told The Herald it was not a question of firing the people who walked out. "They automatically relinquished their jobs by leaving when there was a job to be done." The walkout apparently followed the laying-off of Josephine Staddon, a staff member of the society. Ms. Staddon said she ex- pected the support of her co- workers at a Rehabilitation Society board of directors meeting tonight. She declined further comment, saying publicity before the meeting might put her cause in a bad light Sources close to the workshop said today this is the second time the staff has walked out. The first walkout was one of a series of events that finally ended in the firing of the workshop's last executive director. clerk, is past president of St. Paul's Home and School Association. Mr. Kolesar, manager of St. Patrick's Savings and Credit Union, is president of St. Basil's Home and School Association. Meanwhile, another separate school board can- didate said Monday the separate schools should define objectives and make parents aware of those objectives. But when the schools es- tablish their goals they must be careful not to "load down" teachers with reports and meetings, warns Dave Bowden. an animal nutritionist with the Lethbridge research station. Dr. Bowden. 45. says he believes a teacher's job is in the classroom and anything that takes a teacher away from students is a detriment to the educational system. However, with planning, ob- jectives for the school system could be established without reducing the amount of time the teacher spends in the classroom, he maintains. There are five positions on the school board to be filled. Lougheed to attend dinner here Oct. 2 Premier Peter Lougheed and half his cabinet are ex- pected to attend a Progressive Conservative fund- raising dinner in Lethbridge Oct. 2. At least 200 party supporters are expected to partake of Chateaubriand for a plate at the political func- tion to be held in Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant. The constituency association is making a spirited bid for more women supporters of the party to attend this year. Fred Weatherup, chairman of the organizing committee, said Monday. Jeanne Lougheed, wife of the premier, is slated to attend and about 30 invitations to the dinner have gone to women thus far, he said. Party supporters should obtain invitations not later than this weekend. The last such dinner in Lethbridge was held in June, 1973. Two provincial PC political dinners have been held this year, in Edmonton and Calgary. It is expected the premier will offer a defence of his government's acquisition of Pacific Western Airlines in a 40-minute "state of the province address." He will then answer questions. Tender 60 days off Tenders for construction of the provincial government's new downtown office building will be let in two months, a public works official said Tuesday. J.F. Hunt, director of design and construction for the department, said in a telephone interview from Ed- monton that plans for the two and three-storey U-shaped building are still being com- pleted. He said his department knows the cost will probably be more than the estimate given the city in June. The proposed building, which will lake just over a year to complete, will house government offices and provincial court facilities. Mayoralty open to Buzunis FORT MACLEOD
