Some good news on the local economic front. Statistics Canada says the number of Lethbridge residents receiving unemployment insurance benefits is still dropping. In July, 860 people had applied for or were receiving E.I. That's down about 17% from a year ago when 1040 people were on benefits. The numbers are also falling in most other similar-sized communities in Alberta.
