20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, December 28, TllUNDKIi MAY, Out. UT) U was .somowluH a shotgun marriage, lint the ynunc cou- ple are getliiti! along nicely, thank you, as Iheir first anni- vorsary approaches. This prevails among most of the persons who once made up the feuding communities of I'orl William and Port Arthur and now live in Thunder May, Ontario's eighth-largest city. The two cities and two outlying townships were or- dered by the provincial gov- ernment lo amalgamate Jan. 1. without a plebiscite. But after nearly a year of ma- trimony, a new civic pride is supplant ing years of inter-city bickering. "We're getting used to the new says a waitress. "Kinda has a nice ring to it, doesn't it'.'" "I'm living in a bigger city now." says a sales clerk, "I Uiink they'll be able to do i more for the people who live here." And don't ask a cabbie to drive you to a Port Arthur ad- dress. Otherwise, he's likely to loll you: "You don't say Port Arthur ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 marriage at Lakeliead may work out after all j or l''ort William. That's not al- lowed any more. The name is Thunder Bay." Hut it hasn't all been nup- tial bliss for tbis new city snuggling Lake Superior's northwestern shore. There have been spats over integra- tion of some services and con- troversy over selection of the name. LOOK FOH INDUSTRY Although their resources have been combined, the wed- locked cities can't subscribe to the t w o -c a n -1 i v e -a s- cheaply-as-one theory. Amalgamation critics want to know where the new indus- tn is that a city of over ICO.OOO is supposed to attract. Host civic services and the school systems are working harmoniously since they were combined, but integration of the two police forces is a thorny problem that is still before the courts. And there is room for confu- sion in a city that has a dupli- cation of 70 to 80 street names. Tlie man with many of the answers is Saul Laskin, the 51-y e a r -o 1 d mod-dressing mayor who likes to do a little wine-making when he's not at city hall or at his home-fur- nishings business his father started in Fort William in 1919. lie's the first to admit the new civic administration is not saving "actual dollars" through amalgamation "but we're getting better value for our "We're able to do so much more hs says, mention- ing programs that run from cleaning up the environment Passenger train fail RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) At least five persons were killed and eight injured Saturday when the brakes of a passenger train failed and it left the rails, crashing into a river, police re- ported.

LIVE BY ASSKSS.MENT "We can now plan as one instead of planning at cross- purposes. We can now create an environment that will inake industry want to come here. "Before, Hie two cities had dustries.
