S. LETHBRIUGE, ALBERTA Summer is coming. Be ready with a pair of Prescription Sunglasses. Hostel, jobs Second in series Hundreds would benefit from city half-way house By RUDY Herald Staff Writer There arc virtually hun- dreds of south- ern Alberlans who could be- nefit from the establishment of a half-way typo of centre .n Lethbridge. Lethbridge il a y o r Andy Anderson recently commented on the urgent ncsd for a crash- pad type of place where the temporarily homeless and transient can stay overnight. Such a facility would help keep the city police cell pop- ulation down; reduce the number of people on the streets late at night; and re- duce petty crime. He has also been a vocal proponent of a half way house where ex-inmates and others can stay for awhile, while job hunting and re-es- tablishing themselves in soc- iety. The concept is also en- dorsed by city police and the HCMP. The most widely-accepted list of what a half-way type o! centre should provide (also endorsed by inmates at the Lethbridge Correctional Institute) includes: and board; services; facilities. It should allow persons re- quiring assistance to stay for a period of up to three months and possibly longer if necessary. Primarily to be used by ex-prisoners, it could also house women and possibly children in the same way as the X-Kalay centres on the 1 o w e r British Columbia mainland. Such a centre, run proper- ly, could be financed jointly by the province, fedeial gov- ernment a n d municipality and also through private do- nations. Mervin Leitch, Alberta's attorney general, said lie favors such rehabilitative types of centres. While the province does share in financing such oper- ations in other Alberta cen- tres, no adequate representa- tion has been made from Lethbridge to warrant one, he said. Before the province would commit itself to assisting :.uch a project here it would "have to look at the people here and assess the assis- tance they (centre inhabi- tants) would get from such a project." The government is cur- rently compiling reports on the need for rehabilitative operations in Alberta and will "assess the reports when they are completed." In the past, there have been murmurs at cily hall about using the old Lincoln Hotel, owned by the cily, as a men's hostel or half way house. In a report presented to the city some time ago, it stated "there is a definite need for a men's hostel here." However, renovations to the Lincoln Hotel would cost more than and until the provincial department of health and social develop- ment lifts its current in no- tary freeze, no help will be coming from the province. The department is also currently re-evaluating its own programs. Warden Leslie J. Fisher of the Lethbridge provincial jail says a halt way house "could serve a very useful purpose in the area. "It would be a place where people can go upon their re- lease and gradually re-estab- lish themselves back in the community. "Granted, there have been considerable strides made in terms of pay for people in custody and opportunity for employment on day parole and they see a great deal more of the community and society taking part in com- munity events less isola- a few years Warden Fisher said. "Nevertheless, most leave tins institution with very lim- ited resources with no one or no organization to turn to upon release. "I think a properly oper- ated half way house with good, solid management and financial base, could serve a very useful he said. More Thursday appeal board here today The Alberta Assessment Ap- peal Board is in Lethbridge today and Thursday to review 23 property and business tax assessments. The bearings will be held in council chambers at city hall between a.m. and noon and and p.m. The appellants have been through the local court of re- visions and have had their re- quests for a change in their tax assessments turned down. Persons disputing their tax assessment cannot appear be- fore the provincial appeal board unless they have been to the local court of revisions. The board, consisting of chairman K. A. Luke, G. A. Arneson and A. Lymberner, bases its decisions on whether or not the assessments are equitable with those of other properties or businesses in the city.
