The crown attorney's office here is taking the position that a 15-year-old boy should continue to be held in custody until his trial on a charge of first degree murder in the bludgeoning death of a well-known Ottawa man. Assistant Crown Attorney Don MacDougall also said yesterday he will not be appealing a decision by family court Judge Peter Hamlin that the boy's trial will be held in juvenile court. The prosecutor had applied to have the trial moved to adult court, but failed. The boy is charged, along with 18-year-old Micheal Brousseau in the June 17 slaying of 51-year-old Emile Brady.

The concoction of beef that Bour-que4 peddles is traditional In the Mediterranean area and has already made appearances at Greek By Trish Irvin JOURNAL REPORTER Inadequate provincial funding is the main reason Ottawa-Carleton schools have not been able to produce a steady supply of skilled students, claims the director of Algonquin College's trades and technology division. Jim Nyman, referring to a recently released ministry of labor report, says accusations that local schools are failing to train students for available jobs are. out of date. "We're working on all kinds of programs now with the ministry and the high schools. But what we've been saying for the last few years is that there has to be some readjust-ment of funds between the colleges and universities. "We've always been in the position where we have more applications than places for the students. We have to attract students in their very early years and a lot still think it's nicer to go to university." Algonquin has set up a program where it shares facilities with the Ottawa board of education. And a new program called Interface, which will expose high school students to various technical and trade jobs, is being launched in conjunction with the ministry of education. Firms surveyed The provincial report states that despite high unemployment, nearly half the manufacturing companies surveyed in Ottawa are having difficulty recruiting workers in skilled trades. It says that nine of the 19 local firms surveyed cannot find qualified machinists, machine operators, en-gineerShnd technologists, sewing machine operators, electronic assemblers, tool and die makers and computer personnel. ' Martin Adamson, president of the Five Counties Industrial Training Council in Ottawa, says a survey conducted by the council, reached more than 400 Companies in the area. Results, which are still being compiled, found even more dramatic results says Adamson, "and we have a more accurate and complete sample of the region." The council was conceived in July and since then has completed the survey and set up an employer-sponsored training program which will hopefully, says Adamson, fill the gaps in industry between the needs of the companies and the training of students. program, which helped mark Nepean's first anniversary as a city, featured local dancers and musicians.

Thieves broke into and stole 33 paintings from a 16th floor penthouse apartment owned by 74-year-old Gerard Moreault, a former president and owner of Molson's Brewery Quebec Ltd, Hull divison. , Hull police said preliminary figures estimate the loss at $250,000 but they said they have enlisted the aid of an art expert to assist and evaluate the collection. Broke through doors Police said thieves entered the penthouse apartment at 295 St. Joseph Blvd. by breaking through two security-type doors. Hull Mayor Gilles Rocheleau lives on the same floor as Moreault. There were no break-ins at other apartments. Moreault's son, Pierre, said yesterday the theft was a "a financial and emotional loss" for his father who began the collection more than 30 years ago. Vacation in Florida The younger Moreault, a former Aylmer councillor said his father, who is vacationing in Florida, is expected home in two weeks. Moreault dicovered the theft Sunday when he returned from a trip to Europe. He said thieves also took silverware and other family heirlooms. Hull police said they were informed of the break-in when a janitor found the broken doors leading to the exclusive penthouse area of the building. , All-Canadian art The all-Canadian collection of art included works by Clarence Gagnon, Marc-Aurele Fortin, Franklin Brownwell, James W. Morrice, Paul-Emile Bourduas arid Raoul Duffy. Included were a copy of a. Rembrandt and an early Krieghoff. What Ottawans will get instead are slices of pressed New Zealand beef formed in cylinders at Bour-que's New Brunswick processing plant. The cylinder is rotated on a spit '(hence the name donair which is an adaptation of the Greek "to turn") and sliced in view of the customer. Topped with sauce, onions, tomatoes and such, a donair will cost $10).

"Notify police you are going Health inspectors want better deal Ottawa-Carleton needs more public health inspectors, a report prepared by the region's public health inspection division- says. The report was presented last night to the Ottawa-Carleton board of health. According to provincial standards, the region should have 43 inspectors. However, there are only 31 such officials functioning at the moment. The report pointed out that only six of 43 health units in the province are understaffed by more than 10 inspectors. The six include Street-naming policy criticized by Kanata A road by any other name may not be acceptable to Kanata council. Planning board last night re-j'viewed the region's street-naming Ijjolicy and although members agreed with most points, there was some sharp criticism. Alderman Bill Lund objected to region thinking it is the best judge of what names Kanata should have for its streets.

Make sure you stop mail and newspaper deliveries, have .a close trusted friend or relative check on your property. If you don't give a thief a chance you won't get burned," police concluded. The area requiring most reinforcement, says the report, is the inspection of food premises. Last year, only 11,492 inspections of such premises could be carried out because of a shortage of staff. According to ministry of health guidelines, the number should have been 15,700. The report also stressed the need for employing a full-time health educator and a candidate is being sought for the position. The board will go to regional council in late February or early March with a request for hiring additional health inspectors. he said. "It's not in the best interests of inter-regional affairs." Since 1969 the regional planning department has been responsible for maintaining an index of all streets within the region and must approve all street names in new subdivisions and name changes to old streets. Replying to one regional policy suggestion that bilingual names be assigned to all new streets, Mayor Marianne Wilkinson said as far as she is concerned, "we are unilingual English in Kanata." amenable to particularly spicy and unfamiliar substances. Bourque spent months in his kitchen devising a peculiarly Canadian recipe for the sandwich before opening his first restaurant in Moncton in 1977. The chain of 17 franchises, called Greco Donairs in the East, isn't yet making money, but breaking into the Ontarib market could change all that, Bourque says. He says he'll nped 25 franchises (each a$17,000 investment including Initial .ee) to break even.
