Fort dogs may freeze in pound FORT MACLEOD (Staff) Town councillors agreed Mon- day night the town dog pound is a disgrace and that something will have to be done about it. Coun: Ian Bennett will "nose around and see if there is a better spot" for a new pound. The present building has a cement floor, is drafty, and some councillors are worried that impounded dogs may freeze. Last year 47 dogs were impounded. Said Coun. Ralph Webb: "The water is frozen in buckets... cement floor... my heaven, for a dog or a cat, it's terrible they can freeze to death."

Provincial grants may help Lethbridge A provincial government cost sharing program an- nounced last week could help finance a number of recreational and cultural facilities in Lethbridge, says the city's community services director; Among them: A North Lethbridge rnulti purpose community centre, another community ice arena, renovations to the old city library for an art gallery, and eventually a new art gallery adjacent to the new city library and an equestrian centre. Lethbridge is eligible for at, least million over the next 10 years under the program which was announced Friday by Horst Schmid, minister of culture, youth and recreation. Bob Bartlett, community services director, said he has not yet seen details of the program but added: "It looks like it could cover a wide spectrum of community facilities it sounds like a good program." Some of the city projects, including the north Lethbridge community centre and the equestrian centre were included in. the community services department's capital budget requests for 1976. Aid. Tony Tobin attempted to have the community centre designated for the Churchill Park area and estimated to cost moved up as a project for this year, but coun- cil voted against it in debating capital spending priorities. One of the beauties of that project, said Mr. Bartlett, is that it is being looked at as a multi purpose centre, which is given priority in the provin- cial program. The province will pay for 50 per cent of regional multi purpose centres under the program, and 40 per cent of the cost of a municipal multi purpose centre. Regional single purpose facilities, such as the equestrian centre proposed by the Southern Alberta Equestrian Council, will receive 35 per cent funding, and municipal single purpose facilities, 30 per cent.
