Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE September Disabled group to seek buses Disabled on the Move, a local action group for the han- dicapped will ask city council, probably at its next meeting, to buy four mini-buses for public transportation of the disabled and elderly. "We've estimated there are more than 600 potential users in the city including residents of nursing said Frank Merkl, president of Disabled on the Move. Similar mini-bus systems for the handicapped operate in Calgary and Medicine Hat, Mr. Merkl said. The large sums of money now spent in transportation by volunteer agencies, the han- dicapped individuals themselves and government departments and agencies could be saved, the group's brief says. City council Monday asked Mr. Merkl to bring the brief and a budget to council. The proposal could be financed from the Provincial grant recently received by the city transit department, Mr. Merkl said. Council also received word Monday the city will get another grant to help with the transit system's annual operating deficit. The city is eligible to claim immediately and could later get another said Highways Minister Clarence Copithorne in a letter received by Mayor Andy Anderson Monday. That money is paid under the provincial government's new city transportation policy under which the earlier grant was made. Under the program Lethbridge will get a year for six years. City Manager Allister Findlay told council the ad- ministration will report sometime in November on proposals for use of the money on the city's public transit system. Deputy Mayor Vaughan Hembroff said council should also get community input on use of the money, while Aid. Vera Ferguson said: "I think any group that wants to come tell us what we should do about transportation should be included." City Scene Store loses ammunition A reported break-in Monday at Hoyt's Hardware, located in Westminster Shopping Plaza in North Lethbridge, resulted in a oss of about 600 rounds of .22-caiibre ammunition. About 200 rounds was later found scattered at 6th Avenue and 12th Street C N., Lethbridge city police say. Some businesses reluctant Some Lethbndge businesses will not allow United Way can- vassers to contact employees at work, campaign officials said oday. Leona Hopkins, campaign chairman, said some canvassers .urning in money reported not being allowed to canvass some :irms. Elaine Bartel, president of the Lethbridge United Way, said ear of adverse union reaction could be the cause in the case of arger companies. Trade unions have been very co-operative in places where they have been contacted, but in others employers nave objected, she said. Charged man reserves plea A Sarnia, Ont., man charged with break and enter with intent to commit an in- dictable offence early Sunday appeared in provincial court Monday and reserved his plea and election of trial until he could talk with a lawyer.

This year's offerings include sex education By KATHIE MacLEAN Herald Staff Writer "Animals have instincts to guide them. They automatically do what's right. Human beings have instincts too, but need guidance. In- stincts need to be under control." In a speech to parents of Grade 8 students at Catholic Central High School, Rev. Bill Kelly, consultant with the Lethbridge Separate School district, described the need for a family life education program. Rev. Kelly said Monday evening in the lecture theatre of Catholic Central High School that students are con- stantly being subjected to crazy ideas on sex and sex- uality by today's society and it is important to institute a program to help bring out the truth through the values of Catholic tradition. Ralph Himsl, superinten- dent of separate schools, said the program, which is a unit of the Grade 8 religion course, has been in the planning stages for a year and is ex- Power rate group to be formed A city council committee to deal with interventions against future Calgary Power rate increase applications will be struck after the Oct. 16 civic election. Council agreed to the move Monday. Calgary Power has said it will ask for a seven to 10 per cent increase by December, which if approved could force up city utility bills in 1975. "Why don't they just send it home with the asked Deputy Mayor Vaughan Hembroff. "There's a proper place for these, but I question whether it's in the polling booth on Oct. 16." said Aid. Cam Barnes. And so went city council's discussion Monday of three questions the public school board will be putting out on the civic election ballot, until it was pointed out council had no say on that ballot, merely on what the school board should pay in clerical costs to have it included. Aldermen decided the board should pay printing and adver- tising costs but a suggestion to include a administration fee was dropped when Aid. Tom Ferguson pointed out the school board could turn around and charge the city for the use of its schools as polling places on election day. The public board is asking City not to gain funds Another in day care grants from the province announced Monday probably won't affect Lethbridge. The funds are to create another 330 day care spaces in the province. Eighty would be outside Edmonton and Calgary. While some of the funding will be spent in Medicine Hat to expand day care facilities there, a Lethbridge project is already funded. The North Lethbridge Day Care Centre has had trouble finding a location to set up operations for 20 children but plans to open in Bridge ViSla Estates Oct. 1.

Aid. Bill Kergan claimed a substantial number of voters would be confused by it, but city council Monday nevertheless approved a proposed wording of the fluoridation plebiscite to go on ballots. It will read: "Voting on bylaw to provide authority for the fluoridation of the communal water supply of the city of Lethbridge this 16th day of October 1974. For the bylaw Against the bylaw." "This will still confuse a number of said Aid. Kergan. "We know what it means, but I'm sure a number of residents don't. "It should include. 'Are you in favor of fluoridation' and then 'for the bylaw' and against the bylaw.' Council was also told in another election matter that the ballots will list candidates in alphabetical order. Ald.-Steve Kotch thought all the leaves might not be off the trees by Oct. 15. but the rest of city council Monday favored the Oct. 1-15 fall burning period. Residents will be able to burn leaves and other debris during daylight hours during the two-week period. A joint city-county com- mittee should be set up after the civic election to deal with annexation and other matters of mutual city-county interest, city council decided Monday. Council approved a resolu- tion to that effect sent to it from an initial meeting between county, city and Oldtnan River Regional Planning Commission of- ficials held primarily to dis- cuss annexation. City residents who have more than two dogs got a sym- pathetic word from Aid. Vera Ferguson Monday, as city council passed a bylaw aroer.dmenl limiting cily households to just two dogs. "I hope they enforce this with discretion to keep people from getting more than two dogs, but not forcing those with three dogs now to give one up." she said. The two-dog provision was previously in the city dog bylaw but it provided for some exceptions. These have now been ruled out However, residents with litters of pups have six months to find them new homes, un- der the bvlaw. pected to be approved by the separate school board and in- stituted into the school around Oct. 10. He said there are basically six main objectives of instruc- tion in sex and sexuality. They are: provide a basis for com- munication of information and values between parents and children; help students form a Christian value base for their attitudes and actions pertain- ing to sex and sexuality; provide accurate infor- mation; acquaint students with, and provide them with prac- tice in the use of socially accepted terms in respect to sex and sexuality; help students dignify and revere sex and sexuality as a normal part of life; to keep parents in- formed about the responses in class discussions. Mr. Himsl told parents they will receive outlines every two weeks on subject and con- tent so they may help discus- sion at home. The instruction will take place over a five- week period. Students will receive approximately three periods of .instruction each week. Maurice Landry, director of education for Lethbridge separate schools, discussed the outline for the curriculum which consists of four main topics development of the human being; family; prepar- ing for a family and related concerns. He said the program was developed by members of the administration, teachers at CCHS, trustees and parents. "We hope to acquaint the students with Catholic values towards sex and sexuality." Principal Stan Sawicki told the group he has "far more than a mere passing interest in the program" and is very pleased the program is being instituted in the school. "I have seen some of the effects of misinformation and I hope we can develop at- titudes and spread correct in- formation to overcome he said. Mr. Landry said the course, will be co-educational, with the possible exception of the discussion and films on human reproduction. Mr. Sawicki introduced Sister Alice Daly. Sister Mary Anne Mulvihill and James McCormack as instructors for the program. Mr. Landry said the course will be instituted at the Grade 8 level this fall with hopes of expanding into more grade levels in the future. Bike theft earns jail A 16-year-old Lethbridge youth who pleaded guilty Sept. 13 in provincial court to theft of a motorcycle and remanded in custody was sentenced to six days in jail today and given two-years probation. Provincial Judge L. W. Hudson said the six-day jail sentence will run through to Sept. 27. "giving Uie accused a Ml two weeks in jail." Anthony Michael Tedesco was charged with the offence Sept 3 and was remanded twice, the first time so that a pre-sentence report could be made and the second time so that .fudge Hudson and the youth's lawyer could study the reiwt Fixing playground planned for school The playground areas at the Dorothy Gooder School should be safe, attractive and suitable for instructional use within a few months, the public school board decided in a meeting Monday. The trustees approved the expenditure of for the renovation of the playgrounds to the north and east of the school. The renovations are to provide teachers with an out- door area that they can use as a classroom for specific instructional purposes. Part of the cost of develop- ing the area north of the school building will be financ- ed by a banquet from the es- tate of Elsie Livingstone and a plaque will be erected in the area recognizing the source of funds. The equipment now in the playground area will be removed and set up in another school ground, likely Galbraith School, across the street from Dorothy Gooder School. A program for children who are of normal intelligence but have difficulties learning received public school board approval Monday to enter its second stage of development. The program proposal must now be forwarded to the department of education for approval before it can begin helping Grade 2 and 3 students with learning difficulties at the Lakeview School. The school initiated the program a year ago at the Grade 1 level. The program is geared to provide special assistance to children who are unsuccessful in school because they lack certain skills that are needed to learn well. Visual, auditory, motor and social skills are those often found lacking. If the program receives department of education approval, of the estimated cost of the program will be sponsored by the province. The remainder will be school board responsibility. The extension of the program to Grade 2 and 3 re- quires the hiring of two half- time teachers. Junior high grade students in Lethbridge public schools will be watching educational programs via an American satellite in January, trustees were informed Monday. The schools will be par- ticipating in an experiment sponsored by the Canadian and American governments that provides schools with access to an educational channel on an American satellite launched last March. The educational programs offered on the channel in Jan- uary will deal with career guidance. Program material related to each broadcast will be forwarded to the schools prior to each transmission. The program will be dis- tributed by Lethbridge Cablevision on a channel designated for educational programming. The only cost to local school boards will be the cable in- stallation charges, about to for the three public ju- nior high schools. A television-reception ground station to be establish- ed near Lethbridge will receive the programs from the satellite. Programs are produced in Denver, Colo., and are being evaluated by school audiences south of the border. Sponsored by the Federa- tion of Rocky Mountain States, the experimental pro- ject utilizes a NASA com- munications satellite. It beams programs to isolated areas in the six member states of the federation, and is considered the first such project in the world. Lethbridge schools will only receive programs but the system is also designed for two-way communication between studio and classroom. Centre opens despite hassle The problem plagued North Lethbridge Day Care Centre plans to open its doors to 20 children Oct. 1 despite an unsettled situation concerning its location at Bridge Villa Estates. "The landlord is prepared to let us go ahead and we feel we really must go said Dr. Barbara Lacey chairman of the pre school services board, also serving as the day care centre's board. "We have the money, and we have nowhere else to go to on the northside. We looked into every possible location." Tennants of the mobile home park at 2300 13th St. N. say. meanwhile, that they may take legal action against Bridge Villa owner Ray Chambers after the day care centre opens in their com- munity recreation centre. "We're not against the day care centre as such." said Cy Hoult Jr.. a spokesman for the tenants. "We appreciate what a day care centre is establish- ed to do. "The biggest bone of contention is that the landlord is collecting double rent on the building." A percentage of each mobile home owner's rent goes toward court facilities and services which includes the community centre. Mr. Hoult said. He said he had no idea, however, exactly how much of the monthly rent, which is or depending on (he trailer lot. would go towards the com- munity centre. Mr. Chambers said the tenants aren't directly paying for use of the community building, although a portion of their rent does go toward meeting its costs as well as costs of other services. "Their use of the building hasn't been restricted at he said. "It's sUH open to them evenings and weekends." Eight residents of the mobile home park have applied to have their children in the day care centre, he added. The centre will be open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. although it could open later and close earlier depending on the users' requirements, Dr. Lacey said. Staff members for the centre have also been hired. They are Director Roma Christopher, a graduate in early childhood education from the University of Calgary who has worked in Calgary day care centres and two assistants from Calgary's Mount Royal College'day care program. The Salvation Army has offered'the centre use of its premises at 1302 4th Ave. S. if the Bridge Villa location falls through. Dr. Lacey added. Since it is a North Lethbridge organization, the organizers would prefer to be on the northside, however, she said. The first subsidized day care centre in the city, the North Lethbridge Centre, was initiated early this year by a group of northside mothers, many of them single parents.
