Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, September 3, 1974 Youth centre dies neglected By RUSSELL OUGHTRED Herald Staff Writer MOSES LAKE The lock- ed door and boarded windows mutely tell the story of this reserve community's ill-fated youth centre. Unofficially opened a year ago to ease delinquency among restless youth, the building bought by In- dian Affairs has failed to become a recreational centre for local youth. Lack of funds from the band and apathy among Moses Lake's elders stand between the drop-in centre and its intended use, say members of the centre's "action com- -mittee." Roy Fox, a court worker in Lethbridge with Native Counselling Services, helped organize the centre while he worked with the band's Kainai Community Services. He says, "we planned on volunteer help from older peo- ple in Moses Lake but the volunteers never showed up, except for two or three." One volunteer who did show up was Dave Collis. an RCMP constable stationed in Cardston who helped local youth with sports programs. The need for a drop-in centre is acute, the officer says, although juvenile delinquency is less of a problem than it was when the centre was be- ing planned. "I think they're doing quite well considering the home and family situations and the lack of recreational he says.- Cardston court worker Wilton Goodstriker says "quite a few younger kids, just turned 17, who are appearing in adult court shouldn't be there at all." Another supporter of the centre, Doreen Rabbit of Kainai Community Services, says the drop-in facility needs money. The band hired Leroy Heavy Runner this spring to work in the centre full time, setting aside only for his salary and operating ex- penses. The meagre budget, ended the posi- tion of director, so organizers sought volunteers. "The people in Moses Lake lost interest no one was taking it seriously or trying to plan programs." She says the fate of the centre and the eventual use of its building will be dis- cussed this week at meetings of the action committee and Moses Lake residents.
