PONOKA - Wolf Creek Public Schools say job cuts will be needed in order to balance their budget for the next school year.

The division used reserves to cover a $2.2-million deficit for the current 2015-16 school year. Estimates have the deficit growing to $2.6-million for next year.

Eight homes in Red Deer's Anders neighbourhood were evacuated Wednesday afternoon after a natural gas line was struck by utility workers.

ATCO gas crews responded to an alley behind 87 Anders Close around 12:30 p.m. and were able to close off the leak about three hours later.
