June 24th until August 2nd I i I I New rehab centre to provide services for all handicapped Monday, Junt E UgTHBRIDGE HERALD-15 The Homemaker K- I V, i I By GEORGE STEPHENSON Herald Staff Writer Even before tenders have been accepted on the Lethbridge Rehabilitation Society's new building, the society is organizing new programs and plans for both the old and new buildings. John Henderson, executive director of the society which is trying to help rehabilitate all handicapped people in Southwestern Alberta, says the society will be providing both life skills training as well as vocational training when the new building is constructed. The building, which will accommodate 150 handicapped people in its workshops, will be built at a cost of more than The society has been- given two acres of serviced land by the city worth but the donation was made on the basis that provincial funding, on a dollar for dollar basis, be provided. Don Dalke, a society director, says that although the land could go back to the city if provincial funding is not received, he is hopeful the building will be started by the end of July. The donation of land, contingent on provincial funding, was suggested by Aid. Vera Ferguson who Mr Dalke dubbed a thinker." "She doesn't bother me a bit with her negative thinking. I am so adamant that this thing is going through we are determined that this facility will rise." he said. The society had appealed to council for donation of land instead of a land swap with the city involving Herald Family their present premises because the society decided it needed its old building and land for different projects. "With the two buildings we will be able to give a wide range of services from basic skills to job placement and follow-up so a person is a contributing member of Mr. Henderson says. The workshops and life skills programs will cater to all handicapped people including the retarded, the physically, emotionally .and mentally handicapped and disadvantaged. The society has also approached the warden at the Lethbridge Correctional Institute to find what services can be provided for prisoners there. Mr. Dalke says the warden, after hearing of proposed and operating programs, committed the jail for two work spaces in the new structure. "From a social aspect I spoke with the warden and they were (at first) negative. They didn't see where the building could affect them. "But we could take an individual a first offender who could have social problems and work with this man for six months and then could have an effective comprehensive resume. "We could even have a job waiting for the person." Mr. Dalke says. It would be a day parole type of experiment with prisoners working in the rehabilitation workshop during the day. The new building will provide three workshop areas that the society hopes will help the handicapped clients train for a regular job in the community. There will be a woodwork, heavy industrial and general workshop area. "We will be doing exactly the same work as industry and not at a cut- rate but at the going rate for that type of Mr. Dalke says. He adds the workshop will be phasing out contracts it has taken from industry that offer few opportunities for work in the community. "We have a lot more contracts in limbo because of a lack of proper facilities such as woodworking. "As each person goes through areas he will be evaluated as to what employment he could do and be matched with employment opportunities available." Mr. Dalke adds there will be about a year's follow-up with the person after he has left to see how he is managing in a regular job. Mr. Henderson says the major aim will be to qualify the handicapped for various jobs but adds there is a problem with the small amount the workshop is "forced" to pay its employees. Mr. Dalke says the workshop cannot pay the clients more than a month or the handicapped people will lose their welfare cheques from the government. "We want to make it so people can keep welfare and still earn more than Mr. Henderson says the society cannot tell the clients to forget about their cheques because the workshop wants to pay the clients on the basis of the amount of work they do. Some of the people coming to the shop are not capable of working at a maximum production. If they were taken off welfare, they would never earn enough to live, he says. "Firstly the person probably has lost the desire to work and has to get some incentive." he says. Coupled with the industrial work aspect are programs on basic skills including education on how to use public transportation-, driver training, counselling and sex education. Mr. Dalke says the society wants to work closely with the total medical community in referrals to the workshop. The group has done an informal survey of physicians in the area and has discovered that more than 500 people in the area need the services of the society, he says. In a short presentation to provincial Health Minister Neil Crawford during the minister's trip here June 13. Mr. Dalke said the society has placed 30 per cent of its total client population back in the "communitv. i Shoplifting, theft and stealing all mean basically the same thing crime. A shoplifting infringement can remain on a person's record for the rest of his life closing many doors to future opportunity. A shoplifting charge is a high price to pay for an act that was done because "it was just a "someone dared or "I just wanted to do something exciting." The penalties are stiff for thieves property theft over can net a maximum 10 years imprisonment, and even if it's under worth, you could be enjoying prison meals for up to two years. Some young people think they can shoplift under the cloak of their young age. This isn't true as the court may decide to handle the young offender as an adult even though he is within the age limit of being a juvenile. As an adult, one must accept adult punishments such as fines or imprisonment and a record for life. Many young people caught in the act of stealing use the excuse that "no one told me shoplifting was a crime why didn't someone warn me how serious it Well it is a serious matter and there are a few points that should be kept in mind: first of all. shoplifting is stealing and it's an act against written-law; therefore punishment is due. an infringement of law remains on a person's personal record for life. today when jobs are not readily attainable, employers can be more choosy in selecting applicants and slights of this type are not readily accepted. persons with criminal records cannot be bonded that means you couldn't even work as a stock boy. shoplifting activities may lead to even more serious crimes. applying for a passport becomes a more difficult procedure if one has a criminal record and you may not even be granted one. because of a criminal record one may be branded "that type" by society anc discrimination may result Youngsters should be taught the basics of honesty anc citizenship from an early age These'responsibilities art extremely important a foolish act of shoplifting no matter for what reason becomes a serious act of thefi which can marr a person 'r future opportunities maybe even for life.

Kitchen and Bathrooms THE NOOK Westminster Plaza Phone 329-0700 Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: You must lead a pretty sheltered life, kiddo. I refer to the letter from the woman whose husband grabbed at her night and day. made suggestive remarks in front of the children and so on. She felt such behavior belonged in the bedroom. Someone else wrote to say a husband who behaves like that probably isn't getting much in the bedroom either. You agreed that such a wife should "put herself out a little." even if her carnal appetite didn't quite match "Randy Andy's." Now. back to your sheltered life. Ann: Don't you know that there are men who appear to be very respectable and polite, even courtly, but are bearcats behind closed doors? There is no such thing as "enough" for these animals. I was married to an insatiable lecher for seven years and finally my doctor advised me to divorce him because he was a sex fiend. So why don't YOU wake up and smell the coffee? Free And Thankful Dear F. And T.: I'm awake and the coffee smells delicious. That advice was for the millions of people who approximate normalcy. I didn't get the impression that the woman who wrote was married to a sex fiend. When she called him "Randy Andy." however, I had a sneaking suspicion that she might be "Frigid Brigitte."
