City council decided at its last meeting to rent the offices at 122 5th Ave. S. to the Lethbridge Construction Association after some early discussion of turning the building over to the Alberta Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission for use as a half- way house. The community services department is moving its offices to the southside branch library vacated by the library earlier this year Mark Sandilancls. Centre board of directors secretary, says in a letter to council that Uie board wrote to community services director Bob BarUett in March concerning use of the building and never received a reply. "Since we have as yet received no formal reply from Mr Bartlett it was much to our consternation to note that the community services building will be leased to the Lcthbndge Construction Mr Sandilands says The Centre for Personal and Community development, formerly known as Lethbndge Family Services, is now located in the Red Cross building at 1120 7th Ave S which it shares with the Red Cross United Way but many residents have co- operated in a clean-up campaign The Barons-Eureka Health Unit earlier this year placarded two houses in the hamlet north of Lethbridge and notified several other property owners to clean up garbage and litter in their yards Ken Blom says that one of the houses placarded as unfit for human occupation has been torn down and the other will be renovated by a new owner He is pleased with the degree of co-operation the health unit has received from residents asked to clean-up their property. In some cases, residents still "have a little further to go" to satisfy the health unit, but Mr Blom says he is now trying "friendly persuasion to convince them to clean-up entirely. There are still certain areas in the hamlet that need improvement and some residents still haven't been connected to the sewer and water system, he says. But compared to last year, conditions in Hardieville have improved a great deal. The County of Lethbridge has reached agreement with one resident whose property has been the subject of numerous complaints from neighbors. FG. Sandercock has been given to June 24 to clean up his property, or at least screen it from public view. Coun. Steve Slemko, the county councillor representing the hamlet, told The Herald that legal action may be taken jf Mr Sandercock doesn't comply with the county's request. "We don't want to sue anybody unless we can help it, but if it's the last resort, we'll let the judge decide if it's a he said.

Insp Michelson says One thing that will help is not leaving a nice, expensive case with several tapes in it silting on the front seal This just puts an idea into a thief's mind Either iakr the case in with you or carry only a few tapes al a time in your car. Insp Michelson advises This also applies for tool boxes. hunting rifles or other expensive things people leave in their cars, he In the fall, people display hunting nfles on the back windows of IJheir trucks this is just inviting trouble Often people will park trucks downtown and leave a box of tools in the back This makes it easy.
