Research prerequisite Last in a series Lethbridge one of few cities without rehab centre fly RUDY lUUGKNEIJEIt Herald Staff Writer Since Lhc mid- IfljOs various city groups have lackling the problem of selling up a here. Lelhbri d gc, wiLli its popula- Linn of more thaji is one of the few cilics of its size on the continent with- out a rchabililalion centre. One of the main reasons for past failures to establish one here has bctin Dial no group has made a concerted effort to obtain one. The efforts undertaken to dale by Hie groups, usually numerically small but well meaning, have never armed themselves with the research- ed material required lo sway the support of politicians- necessary to obtain public funds. It has been noted that these groups generally fail to con- tact MPs, P.lLAs and. other politicians who could weigh such .1 venture favorably. Often such details as: the number of people affected in both the short and long range; the amount of money required immediately and in the fu- lure; and where Ihu centre would be located, were not mentioned. Half way house proponents In olher Canadian centres suggest these answers may not be made public earlier because ot public reaction: fear, hate, ai ger all of which spell "ignorance." Fear and suspicion occur because most individuals re- quiring rehabilitation are for- mer prison inmates "ex- cons." Ex prisoners, both male and female, suffer from pub- lic ignorance. Employers will not hire them either because of written or unwritten em- ployment policies not to hire ex-cons. In Lethbridge, how ever, there is one exception lo the rule about researching the halfway house problem. This city's John Howard So- ciety is currently involved in an extensive study which should reveal in facts and figures the need for such a centre here. Sociologists and psycholo- gists Bay society's present at- titude of bitterness, hate, and repression towards those re- quiring rehabilitation must change. Two men escaped injury early this morning when fire gutted the living room and kitchen area of apartment 208 in Larkspur Apartments at 1603 Scenic Heights. Two pumper trucks and 10 firefighters responded to the call at a.m. and confined the fire (o an estimated damage. Apparently the (ire broke out in the chesterfield while the two occupants were sleeping. Fire officials believe a cig- arette butt or ash slarfcd the lire. One of the occupants jumped to safety from the second floor apartment through a window screen while the other man tried lo douse the fire with water before walking out the door. Captain Jim McKcnna of the fire department said It was lucky for all that one of (he men woke up and noticed the fire.
