What it takes to be a Town Councillor

Johann Kuschke | inSide Drumheller

After six years serving as a member with the Drumheller town council, Andrew Berdahl, has made the decision not to run for next elections in October. “The commitment is considerable,” said Berdahl who has served two three-year terms as an elected official. “I think if one is going to do it properly, then they need to be emotionally prepared to commit to all that’s involved.” Berdahl initially assumed the role because he felt a change could be made and he could make an impact on the com-

munity. “I think most people put their name forward because they want to make a positive difference, they want to make life better in the community,” he said. “I never really thought I would ever run, it’s not something I grew up thinking I would do.” But when election time came around in 2007, he decided to “give it a shot.” “If somebody is motivated in good faith, they tend to be a better candidate,” said Berdahl. While he has enjoyed his time spent as a council member, Berdahl said the position has made a

significant impact on his life in a variety of ways. “It’s just 38 more things to think about.” He affirms that in order to be a strong candidate for town council, one must have respect, the ability to communicate, and have an element of vision. “One needs to have a vision of what it is they want to create in order to make it happen, and the ability to build and maintain positive working relationships,” said Berdahl. “Being a councillor is essentially a leadership position.” Coming into the position as a middle class

As one can expect, the topic of a water park/slide at the Aquaplex comes up often. Either in casual conversation, or from a comment at Town Council, some solution to the absence of another water experience for locals and visitors has yet to be reached. There is certainly a direct connection to pool revenue since the old waterslide was removed prior to Christmas last year. More than one person has said to this writer that without a second water play park option along with the indoor pool, that the Three Hills pool, along with others in the area, is where they go for family fun. Patrons want (and expect) that extra value for their recreation dollar and will travel some distance to get it, taking with them food, fuel and accommodation dollars. The town fathers, (and mothers), have to find some workable, financially sound, fiscally responsible design to solve the problem. Here's is one that might work. We have no idea what a waterpark facility attached to the Aquaplex will cost, but for arguments sake, say $250,000. When the change lockers at the pool were replaced some years back, this office was both surprised and disappointed to see the new lockers installed at the old rental price of 25 cents. That's the same

price charged for the old lockers installed at the pool when it was built in the 1970's. Should have charged a loonie. Again, we have no idea what the change locker rental at the pool would be for a year, but at 25 cents a pop, let's say $5000. If the mechanism was changed to a loonie, immediately the revenue would rise to $20,000 per year. Multiply that by 12.5 years and you have your waterpark paid for. Just by somebody changing their clothes. Imagine that! If the changes had been made three years ago, there would already be $60,000 in the bank. Now, if an effort were put forth by a committee to do a bit of fundraising, we feel that enough corporate, service club and individual donations would come about that the park would be paid for in even less time, thereby reducing the amount bridge financing required by the town. Sadly, the Aquaplex operates at a loss, as do most town facilities. This is not unusual, as most municipalities have to subsidize recreational buildings with taxpayer dollars. Maybe this idea can catch fire, so a new waterpark/slide can bring more users, who will rent more loonie lockers, and provide more revenue at the pool. ORS

working dad, Berdahl believes the role has effectively engaged him to become actively involved with organizations most people are not typically involved in. “Our community has a good many people who are capable of being good leaders and who are already doing it in many cases,” he said. “Most of the work a council member does is about fundamental personal skills, how to reflect, how to be open minded, how to listen to people, and how to communicate and ask questions.” Although Berdahl has been with council for six years, he believes there is merit to the idea of passing on the torch to another candidate. “Democracy thrives on diversity and so, having a variety of different people who cycle through these positions is the sign of a healthy democracy.” Despite his decision not to run for next elections, Berdahl’s actions are made with the best intentions. “It can be very difficult

for an individual to retain their freshness and their focus, and I think there is merit to the idea of going away for a little while, living your life and then coming back perhaps at another point.” While the role of being a councillor isn’t all that glamorous, Berdahl said the approximately $14,000 a year salary does help to take some of the sting out of such a demanding position. “The remuneration helps keep some balance,” he said. According to Berdahl, the position of councillor can pose a substantial amount of stress on one’s life, on and off the job. “It adds another element to your relationships,” he said. “You wear each decision.” He may be done serving town council after this term, but Berdahl affirms he will remain politically active in his future endeavours. “If anything, it’s clearer to me now on all the ways one can be involved in leading their community.”

Community Services develops bullying speaker series Michael James | inSide Drumheller

Give peace a chance, Drumheller. Community Services in Drumheller is giving that message as part of its ďŹ rst installment of a monthly speaker series being developed by the Town. “We’re trying to start a speaker series in town to give people more resources about bullying and how to stop it,â€? said Jeannie Lutz, Community Services Coordinator for the Town of Drumheller. The series was developed to help combat bullying in Drumheller. Typically bullying is thought to be a problem for children and teenagers. Through the speaker series, the goal is to teach residents that bullying extends well into adulthood. “It’s not just a youth problem. We’re ďŹ nding more and more that it’s a community issue and it takes

the whole community working together to deal with bullying,� said Lutz.

Jeannie Lutz... Community Services Coordinator with the Town of Drumheller

Other communities across the country are taking the matter seriously as well. Hanna recently passed an anti-bullying bylaw and

Drumheller has a bylaw that covers bullying. The ďŹ rst installment of the series is scheduled for April 16 in St. Anthony’s and Greentree Schools and a two hour evening session at the Badlands Community Facility. The workshop features Je McCann, who has been presenting to Alberta students and parents for the past 12 years through The Make Peace Foundation. “This talk will cover why people bully and will get people involved in the presentation,â€? said Lutz. Further talks have been scheduled. In May there will be a presentation about the Alberta Help Line, which oers support to those suering from bullying. The RCMP will also be giving a presentation regarding cyberbullying. The goal is to continue to host monthly talks on the subject of bullying.

Local residents discover new extreme sport

Local resident, Kelly Henrickson, went for a kayak ride down the heavy stream of spring runoff flowing alongside the north Johann Kuschke | inSide Drumheller

Local Drumheller residents have discovered a new extreme sport this spring, and all that’s required is a kayak, the north hill entrance into Drumheller, and some favourable spring conditions. The “sport” has raised quite a few eyebrows after making its internet debut, but for 24-yearold Kelly Henrickson, his younger brother Adam, and their friend Daniel Hawryluk, it was a golden opportunity to have some fun during their lunch break from Westergard Ford on April 5. Kevin Burfield, a resident living in the Morrin area, sparked Kelly’s interest when he sent him a cell phone photo of the spring runoff flowing alongside the north entrance of Drumheller, located near the airport turn off. “I pretty much decided right then and there that it had to be done,” said Henrickson. The idea came up as a result of Henrickson’s father who used to talk about it years ago. But having never tried it before, Henrickson felt that Go for the

now was the time. “It just worked out that we had the kayak in the right spot,” he said. “I’ve always kind of wanted to do it before and we’ve always talked about it.” With Hawryluck taking the wheel and his younger brother Adam filming the whole experience alongside from the highway, Henrickson hopped in the kayak and began his journey down hill. “It was awesome,” said Henrickson. After making it down as far as he could on the right side of the highway, he portaged across the road and completed the final leg of his journey on the opposite side of the road. “It was a little rough, so I didn’t have the skirt on it,” said Henrickson. “It filled the kayak full of

water, and I almost ended up in Michichi Creek then into the river. So I had to go for a little bit of a swim.” Henrickson and friends have already begun to brainstorm ways they can make the next time more fun. One of the ideas includes bringing a canoe and another person into the equation. Although the stunt can only be performed a few days each spring, it’s managed to grab a lot of people’s attention and may just be the next big “extreme sport” to hit Drumheller. “Since there’s no ski hill, or skate park and because of the Town’s latest anti dirt biking crusade, we’re running out of things to do around here,” said Henrickson. “You have to make your own fun.”

Sudoku Here’s how it works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Answers Last Week's Crossword

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, take time to sort through some of the paperwork on your desk. You could find there is something important that you overlooked that needs to be addressed.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, you may be feeling a little homesick, especially if you are away on business or on vacation. Try to make the most of the situation even if you’re feeling nostalgic.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 There are a few things you can’t seem to work out in your head, Taurus. A better idea may be to put everything on paper and perhaps the answer will jump out.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, if it seems like nothing is going your way, keep in mind there is a master plan in the works. You may not be able to see the resolution, but just be patient.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, there will be a few moments this week when you seem to have a breakthrough. Maybe it’s in a relationship or you have just the right answers at work.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, there are a few puzzle pieces that you need to get into place and then you’ll have everything worked out. Reward yourself with a night out.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Surprising events are in store as you continue to change your views about life-altering events, Cancer. You may find your master plan is entirely turned on its head.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, lay low for awhile rather than drumming up some trouble. Tempting as it is to stir the pot, it may cause more difficulties for you in the long run.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, your energy level is so revved up that others won’t be able to keep up with you. You may have to slow down a little to let others catch up.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, although you have a few projects on your to-do list, you can’t seem to get started. Instead of looking at the entire list, tackle one task at a time and you’ll get the job get done.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, others find it difficult to change your opinion once you have your mind set on something. But it still helps to consider if the direction you’re heading is the right way.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, turn your thoughts to creative efforts and you’ll find the days will just fly by. Before you know it, the weekend will be here.

Fran Nargang, owner of The Old Grouch’s and her husband Garry, understand the importance of STARS. In fact, their grandson today is a healthy 17-year-old thanks to the quick action of STARS after he was hit by a car as a youngster. A number of other residents owe their life to this service. Because of this, they have built the 24-hour Jam into a premier fundraiser in Drumheller. The jam begins on Friday, June 7 at 6 p.m. and ends on Saturday at 6 p.m. in that time, dozens of musicians, both local and from out of town, take to the stage to belt out some tunes. Throughout the event there is a silent auction and area residents and businesses donate a variety of items to help raise funds for the Air Ambulance service. This year the Nargang’s have set their sights even higher than last year’s incredible result. To do this, they are looking for silent auction items. For more information, or to support the event, contact Fran at 403-823-5755.

Seniors and students share cultural learning experience Johann Kuschke | inSide Drumheller

International students from the Drumheller Valley Secondary School (DVSS) have been volunteering their time every Sunday and Wednesday to entertain some of the senior citizens in our community. The program, which started up on March 1, appears to be off to a good start as it offers a mutual cultural learning experience for both students and seniors. “They need the hours and require the credits for grade 12, so we looked around to see what they could do and I immediately thought of the seniors,” said dormitory supervisor at DVSS, Margaret Jopp. All grade 12 students at DVSS require 30 hours of volunteer work in order to graduate. Jopp said the program counts towards their volunteer hours and also rewards the students with a few extra credits. The students volunteer

Grade nines get special treat for Law Day Johann Kuschke | inSide Drumheller

Grade nine students from Drumheller Valley Secondary School and St. Anthony’s schools will be treated to a mock court trial put on by some of the local lawyers and law officials from the community, as part of the annual celebration of Law Day on April 17. A presentation given by the office of the chief medical examiner will take place at the Drum-

heller Court House from 11:45 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the pirate themed court trial taking place afterward until 3 p.m. The mock trial is about a noble girl named Elizabeth Swan who became a no-good pirate while infiltrating a pirate ship, dressed as a man by the name of Swanny. The pirates eventually found out her true identity one day while they were swimming, and now Swan is suing the pirates for her share of

the treasure that she believes is rightfully hers. The purpose of the trial is to give the students more education and information through the law system, which they are currently learning about in school. Prizes will be given to the grade nines including, iPads and iTunes cards. Celebrated across Alberta, Law Day commemorates our nation’s adoption of the charter of rights which was signed on April 17, 1982.

Members of the Drumheller Co-op are being asked to step up to the plate to fill a pivotal role within the organization at the upcoming annual general meeting on April 24. At the meeting, members will be voting to fill five vacancies in the Co-op board of directors. “The business we have is fairly regular. We’ll have the presentation of our financial statements and reports from our president and general manager. Then, we’ll have elections for five vacant board positions,” said Gordon Van Kannel, general manager of the Drumheller Co-op.

The Drumheller #146 Mason’s Lodge was pleased to add another book to its altar at their last meeting; the Koran, the central religious text of Islam. The Koran was added when the lodge welcomed a member of the Islamic faith on his own Holy Book. It is the custom of Freemasons to honour the various faiths of its members by placing their respective Holy Book on the altar. Pictured with the Koran and Bible on the altar is current Worshipful Master of Drumheller Lodge #146, Very Worshipful Brother Wray Wright.

Boogiemen season ends before it begins

Public gets sneak peak of next year’s Dragons

Team forced to wait until next season

didn’t happen,� said Powell. Now, many of the players will be heading to other communities to play.

Michael James | inSide Drumheller

Johann Kuschke | inSide Drumheller

The Dragons are hard at work for their o season training as they begin their ďŹ rst spring camp on Friday, April 12. The camp will resume over the weekend, oering valuable training to the team who placed fourth in the AJHL southern division last season. Unfortunately, Brennan Baxandall, Ryan Aasman, Brad Deagle, Gartner Harrison Hendrix, Brodie Jamieson, and Bryton Mills have all turned 20-years-old this year making them no longer eligible to play for the Dragons next season. The approaching spring camp will give Dragons fans a special sneak peak of some of the new talent to hit the ice next season.

Junior lacrosse in Drumheller will have to wait one more year. The Boogiemen, the junior level lacrosse team representing Drumheller, will not be playing this summer, according to team organizer, Dave Powell. “There were not enough guys to play. A couple of the guys made Team Alberta for football and a couple junior hockey players were injured,â€? said Powell. The news is disappointing for Powell, who had to work hard to get the team into an oďŹƒcial lacrosse league this year. As of early March, the team was gearing up for the season. “I’m more than disappointed it

run by Michael James

I have been looking at myself in the mirror lately and I haven’t been liking what I see. There is some excess baggage building up. With that in mind, I decided to shed some of my bad habits, get in shape, and have vowed to run in this year’s Dinosaur Valley Half Marathon.

Drumheller Chrysler would like to thank all of those who have supported us over the past 15 years.

guys playing lacrosse in Okotoks, Olds, and Brooks asked if they could have some guys,� said Powell. The Boogiemen were formed last year, but had to wait a year before they were able to join a league. In that time, they played exhibition games. This year, they may do the same. “I’m not going to give up on it,� said Powell. “We’re going to try to get some exhibition games here and there.� Lacrosse fans hoping to see the Boogiemen in league action will have to wait another year. Powell is optimistic for next season. “There are a lot of Midgets moving up who will be able to play at the Junior level,� said Powell. “We have a strong Midget program this year, so we’ll have a good group come out of that, which will help us out quite a bit.�

To get an idea of the magnitude of this decision, I should explain where I am coming from. At the time of writing this, I am almost 29 years old, 5’9�, and roughly 195 pounds. I have an immense sweet tooth and will generally give into temptation when it comes to junk food. The worst habit I’ve picked up is an addiction to Coca-Cola. Since beginning my undergraduate degree, just under 11 years ago, I’ve been drinking roughly two to three cans of

pop per day, sometimes more. That, coupled with a generally sedentary lifestyle of oďŹƒce work and an aversion to exercise during my free time, has led to a sharp decrease in my overall physical ďŹ tness in the latter half of my twenties. It’s time to change all of that. Over the spring and summer I will get active and train to run the Dinosaur Valley Half Marathon. For the next ďŹ ve months, I will give regular updates on my progress here, in inSide Drumheller, and talk on dierent aspects of getting in shape for the race. Join me as we go on the run!
