OPINION

Soaking up the slick What may look like a preemptive attempt to sand the roads for winter was actually the clean up efforts of Huxted Waste Disposal. Early in the morning of Wednesday, August 8, a Huxted garbage truck began leaking oil on to Highway 9 South. Huxted employees were quickly on the scene, blocking off the right hand lane of Highway 9, and pour clay on the spill to soak up the oil. The spill was cleaned up and traffic was restored by the evening. inSide photo by Michael James

are you? WHO Tim Chatten

Age: 29 Occupation: Swab supervisor for Carnwood Wireline Ltd. We basically pull fluid out of oil wells to help them flow better. How long have you lived in Drumheller? Almost a year now. Where are you originally from? I’ve lived a few places in my life. I’m originally from Victoria, British Columbia but I’ve also spent some time living in Grande Prairie and Red Deer. What do you like most about the valley? Hands down, the scenery. We are surrounded by all the beautiful hills. Is there anything you don’t like about Drumheller? No, I’ve never had any issues here. The only thing I couldn’t believe this summer was how many mosquitoes there are. However, that’s due to all the moisture we’ve had. What are some of your hobbies? Dirt biking, golf, baseball, and I’m always building something at home. Call it amateur carpentry if you will. Motocross seems to win out of my hobbies though, I actually bought

my bike the same day I bought my house here. What technology could you not live without? The internet. I use email so much that I don’t even know how to mail anything. Last time I went into the post office, I had to get help from the staff to send something. If someone were to make a movie about your life, who would play the starring role? I would have to choose Matt Damon. For one, he’s awesome. Secondly, he’s always making fun of himself because he’s Maaatt Daaamon. If you could travel through time, what year would be your destination? I would go back to when I was 14. I would make myself work a little harder in school. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you be? Northern California. I’m not afraid of earthquakes, you can ride all year round, and my wife likes the vino. Any words of wisdom? Full throttle, solves the problem or ends the suspense.

Changes to taxi bylaw in research stage Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

Administration for the Town of Drumheller is currently in the research phase of preparing a new bylaw on how taxis are operated and regulated within Drumheller. The proposed bylaw is expected to be ready for presentation to Town Council by early fall said Paul Salvatore, director of Community Services for the Town of Drumheller.

Paul Salvatore, director of Community Services for the Town of Drumheller said the new taxi bylaw is in the research stage. By early fall the bylaw is expected to be ready for presentation before Town Council.

but not a necessity, to work for a small oilfield company around the Drumheller area.

“The goal is to come up with a bylaw that is simple, easy to understand and works for those who it applies to,” said Salvatore. The need for a new bylaw, it seems, as Salvatore explains, is when more competition enters the marketplace there is an outcry for regulation. Looking into examples from other communities within Alberta, Salvatore said they want to create a bylaw that best suits Drumheller. “We certainly don’t want to take examples from communities that are way beyond our scope and size. Calgary for instance, has thousands of cabs on the road and that’s just not Drumheller,” said Salvatore. There is an existing bylaw for taxis operating within Drumheller, however it hasn’t been updated since 2000. “We want to operate and regulate in a simple way but also ensure the safety of passengers.”

It’s only in its first year, but already The Power of Four program, run by Drumheller Family Literacy, is being held up as model for a nation-wide program. The program was evaluated two weeks ago by Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) Canada. HIPPY Canada started a federally funded pilot program last year and Drumheller was one of 20 communities that participated. “It was a very successful year. We were just evaluated on our program because of how well it went this year,” said Louise Henrickson, program coordinator. “This is what they want to use as a model for other programs and find out why we were successful.” The Power of Four program focuses on teaching preschool children the fundamentals of literacy by age four, before they head off to kindergarten. Through classes with parents, books, and activity guides, the program teaches parents how to interact with their children to help foster literacy and other fundamental skills. “It’s getting parents involved in their child’s education. Parents don’t realize how strong they are as first educators. Children need the parent’s support,” said Henrickson. Ideally, children need to hear 1000 books before kindergarten and have six to eight rhymes or songs memorized. During the course of the program, parents attend eight sessions, receive six books, discuss the material, and go home with activities they can do with their children.

Drumheller Family Literacy has been helping teach parents how to teach their children the basics of literacy over the past year. The Power of Four

program is now being held up as a model for similar programs throughout Canada. It is hoped the program will resume come September.

Angeline Seeley, a parent of two children aged three and five (two and four at the time of the program) felt the program was worthwhile. “My four year old son, who just turned five, he was starting to read words like ‘cat’ or ‘dog’ after the program. We would be driving and he would notice the sign for Delia and could sound out the words. He’s been exposed to consistent reading and interaction. “It was beneficial to have both (kids) in the program, because my three year old can speak in complete sentences. He has an incredible vocabulary,” said Seeley. It wasn’t just her children who did the learning. “You take on an awareness that the learning process isn’t just about the kids. It’s about the parents learning how to teach their child. Every time you interact with your child, they learn something from you,” said Seeley. The program is not just about learning. During the program sessions, parents meet each other,

interact, swap advice, and build a support network. “There’s benefits from even just the parents interacting. We talk and the other parents might bring up things or advice you might not have thought of. They’re going through the same things you’re going through,” said Seeley. For now, Drumheller Family Literacy is working on funding to continue The Power of Four program next year. Through grants and donations, it is hoped things will continue to grow. The next sessions are set to begin in September. Anyone interested in joining is encouraged to contact Henrickson at 403-823-7969. “If you have the opportunity to do this program, don’t hesitate for a minute,” said Seeley. “You’re going through the material together, so you’re developing a bond and relationship. It’s not just bonding with literacy, you’re bonding with each other and creating strong roots as a family.”

Ten tips on riding the roads safely Donella Swan | inSide Drumheller

As the summer season comes rolling through, many will head out on the roads with their motorcycles. Enjoying the sunshine on a motorbike can be an adventure, however safety precautions must be kept in mind. Here are some tips for motorcyclists, from Constable J.S. Smith, on how to stay safe and still enjoy the thrill of the ride this summer: 1. Make yourself visible Always assume you’re invisible because to most drivers you are. A few easy “tapsâ€? on the pedal or lever before stopping makes your brake light more eye catching to trailing traďŹƒc. On that note, always make complete stops and look twice for potential hazards. 2. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst Dress for the crash. Even for ďŹ ve-minute trips, because nobody likes to eat pavement. An approved safety helmet and protective clothing is an important precaution. Driving defensively is also a priority. Always assume that car sitting across the intersection will turn across your bow at the green light, with or without a signal. 3. Be patient and pay attention Always take another second or two before pulling out to pass, riding away from

curbs or merging into traďŹƒc. It’s the things you don’t see that get you; an extra look could save your life. 4. Keep your eyes moving Scanning traďŹƒc for potential trouble is key as it is always shifting. Never change direction without checking if the coast is clear. 5. Learn to swerve Being able to execute tight turns in quick succession is so important. Hazards can arise any moment and a driver must react. Practicing tight turns, both left and right, until it is a reex is a good idea. 6. Slippery when wet If a patch of pavement looks the slightest bit wet, always assume it’s slippery. It may be nothing, however if it’s oil, water, engine coolant, or a number of other things potentially on the road way, you might be in trouble. Better to slow down than to be sorry. 7. Leave the iPod at home Having your music cranked up with your headphones in is exceptionally dangerous. You may not hear that vehicle blasting its horn behind you, or the emergency vehicle racing to a call.

Sometimes hearing the danger come before seeing it. Motorcyclists need to be on the aware. 8. Ride within your comfort zone Even when riding with a group, stay safe by riding at your own level. Riding over your ability is an easy way to wind up hitting the ditch. Have a rendezvous point for the group to meet up again, allowing everyone to ride at their own pace. 9. Watch oncoming, left turning cars Don’t ever assume a motorist will wait for you to make the intersection. Beating the red light may be on their mind, and they may just make that left turn right in front of you. Left turning cars remain the leading killer of motorcyclists. 10. Take a motorcycle safety course These courses are designed to educate people about the hazards and safety precautions of riding a motorcycle. Whether you’re a new or experienced rider, what you may learn in this course may just save your life down the road. On an end note, from the RCMP Al-

Say “I do,” at Drumheller Little Church cies regarding these dates. “It’s kind of fun when there’s tourists there [during a ceremony] because they just can’t believe there’s a real wedding taking place,” said Flater. “Ceremonies held at the Little Church are definitely small, due to limited space, but it provides a very intimate atmosphere.”

Donella Swan The Weekender

Drumheller’s Little Church, located on North Dinosaur Trail, west of the Royal Tyrrell Museum, is often a site for visitors to stop and see. However, the sixseater church has also been a popular site for many countless wedding ceremonies and vow renewals. “I’ve married eight to ten couples out at the Little Church in the seven years I’ve been a marriage commissioner,” said Marina Flater, who is a marriage commissioner in Drumheller. When discussing the chosen location with the couples, Flater said many of them chose the Little Church because of the beautiful landscape. “It’s this adorable, little tiny church in a beautiful setting, and most of the couples I’ve married out there have been from out of town,” said Flatcher. Becky Kowalchuk, another marriage commissioner in town, said in the last two years she has been a commissioner, has married one couple at the Little Church.

The Drumheller Valley is a unique, scenic valley, created by millions of years of erosion by wind and water. About 65 million years ago, dinosaurs roamed the hot tropical swamps and forests that covered this area. Today, the fossilized remains of the dinosaurs can be seen in museums all over the world, and the lush vegetation exists as coal seams throughout the area. The Valley was first inhabited by Thomas Greentree, who, in 1902, built his homestead on what is now the Town of Drumheller. The Greentree House became a stop-over place for early pioneers coming into the district. It was Sam Drumheller who first exploited rich coal reserves

in the area and conceived the idea of a townsite in the Valley. Jesse Gouge opened the first coal mine in 1911. In 1913, the Calgary-Drumheller railway line was opened and the coal industry boomed. More than 40 mines were soon operating in the Valley. Mining towns like Nacmine (short for North American Collieries Mine), Midlandvale, Rosedale, East Coulee, Wayne, and Newcastle developed notorious reputations as highrolling boomtowns with bootlegging and gambling. When gas and oil were discovered in other parts of Alberta, the importance of coal diminished and the economy of the Valley turned to other things.

Waiting 24 years to return to Drumheller Donella Swan The Weekender

Opening up the curtains on the hotel room window, a young Ariadne ShaďŹ&#x20AC;er was both shocked and disappointed at the view presented. It was April of 1988, ShaďŹ&#x20AC;er and her family had travelled from Libby, Montana to see the sights and attractions Drumheller had to oďŹ&#x20AC;er. Unfortunately though, the day after their arrival, the skies opened up and left the gift of large amounts of snow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my memory, our car was parked on the street and was completely covered with snow. It was so nice the day before and to wake up to that was like being transported to a dif-

ferent world or something. There was no way to get out of town or even to the museum.â&#x20AC;? Twenty-four years later, ShaďŹ&#x20AC;er is returning to the valley with her own family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had always wanted to return since my ďŹ rst visit, and when my daughter became interested in dinosaurs we decided Drumheller was the place to be,â&#x20AC;? said ShaďŹ&#x20AC;er. However, there were even delays in travelling here this time around. After a mix up over their daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passport, at the Los Angeles International Airport, they were not permitted to cross the border via airplane. The family then ďŹ&#x201A;ew to Salt Lake City, Utah from L.A., rented a car

in Salt Lake City, and drove a total of 14 hours to get to Drumheller. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just thought â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to see some dinosaurs and nothing is going to stop us,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said ShaďŹ&#x20AC;er. During her ďŹ rst family vacation in Drumheller in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;88, ShaďŹ&#x20AC;er remembers it mostly spent in the hotel room, playing cards and watching television. ShaďŹ&#x20AC;er said after a day or two, a path was ďŹ nally dug out along the sidewalk leading to the movie theatre. Her family and her walked (l-r) Costa Singer, Kizziah Singer, 7, and Ari- er as a teenager in April of 1988, having adne Shaffer visiting the Tyrrell Museum her time in the valley cut short by a huge down the street and on August 2.

Throughout summertime, The Weekender will be looking for visitors to the valley and sharing their stories with inSide readers.

Marina, Marko, Ivica, Nikita,and Charlie (the dog) Ramseier Lucerne, Switzerland

I noticed your RV isn’t from around here: (Marina) It’s from Switzerland. You put it on a ship, the ship brings it over, and then you pick it up. The rest of us flew in. Where did you land and where have you been so far? We landed in Baltimore. We went through Pennsylvania, New York, Niagara, the prairies, and now we’re here. Where to next? To Banff and Jasper, then either to the coast or down to the U.S., I don’t know yet. How long are you going to be on the road? About half a year. How is everyone enjoying the trip so far? We’re doing good. We’re

on the road so long it’s not really a vacation, it’s more of a lifestyle. Why stop in Drumheller? The dinosaurs! Along the way people were telling us the museum was great. Do the boys have any favourite dinosaurs? Dinosaurs are going to be new for them. They’re going to learn something new. If someone from Drumheller were to go to Lucerne, what should they see? There’s history everywhere you go. The Chapel Bridge is really famous. The lake is gorgeous. But, just go into the mountains.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 You are on a roll, Aries, and now it is just a matter of maintaining the momentum for a few more days. Don’t let anyone slow you down this week.

Lori Stefanishion inSide Drumheller Food Columnist I found this to be a nice change with barbecued chicken. Ordinarily, it seems we eat breaded chicken in the winter - good old comfort food! This recipe combines the goodness of fried chicken with the goodness of barbecued. The mayonnaise marinade makes it especially moist. You can set it aside to bake on indirect heat after browning it

and not have to tend to it as much without worrying about it drying out.

Crispy Grilled Chicken Thighs 1/3 cup mayonnaise 1T chili powder ½ tsp cayenne 8 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs 1 ½ cups breadcrumbs

Refrigerate chicken tossed in mayo and spices for at least 2 hours or overnight. Heat grill. Dip chicken in breadcrumbs to coat. Grill chicken turning once until cooked – about 20 – 25 minutes per side. I have already made this more than once this summer! Last time, I had made a cold

spinach dip using yogurt, mayo and sour cream. I marinated the chicken in that instead of just the mayo. It turned out delicious! For those who have followed my winning recipes from

the annual Shuswap cabin cook offs, watch for the next one coming up. There is an ethnic theme with each cabin entering a food from their own heritage. I have a feeling it will be a close match for the winner.

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!

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, there are many opportunities within your reach, but you are not sure which way to go. Seek advice from Sagittarius when you get a spare moment. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Others can see you haven’t been yourself lately, Gemini. So relax and take a break from something that’s been bothering you, and you will return to being your old self. You won’t be disappointed. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Now is not the time for dawdling, Cancer. You have a full plate of things to tackle and it seems like the hours will be slipping away. Recharge and get focused. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, don’t let anyone discourage you when tackling a big project. As you have proven time and again, you simply need to establish a goal and your efforts will help you achieve it. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, though you may not know where your path will lead this week, you are deeply aware that an adventure is in store. Take some time to prepare your mind and body. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, no one will know who you truly are unless you share a few secrets. You don’t have to give everything away, but allow others in by sharing some personal information. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, though you don’t shy away from challenges, you do know when to pick your battles. When something inconsequential comes up this week, let it pass. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, when a past conflict resurfaces this week, push it aside because that is ancient history. It is better to focus on the positive things that are in store for you. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, when you love someone, it can be difficult to step aside and let this person make his or her own choices. But this is what you have to do for lessons to be learned.

research happening about the lift. We’re looking at it and asking ourselves what can we use this space for. We’re trying to get answers,” said Passion Play executive director Vance Neudorf. Earlier this year, the Passion Play celebrated as it successfully purchased the old ski hill’s share of the land, which consisted of the area below the first chair lift

For two years the hill overlooking the Passion Play site has stood silent. The former ski hill and its equipment, like the badlands surrounding, has been slowly eroding away. The Canadian Badlands Passion Play Society hopes to change that. “There are a whole lot of discussions and

tower. The purchase also included the entirety of the lodge, a large quonset, parking, and the lift station sitting at the base of the hill. The Passion Play has renovated and utilized everything from the purchase, save the lift station. However, the ideas have been floating around for awhile regarding what to do with it. “We’ve been looking at this ever since we started looking into buying the property. Going into something like those, you have to have an idea of what needs to be done. We’ve put out feelers with various research companies to see what is possible,” said Neudorf. In regards to leasing the remainder of the hill and bringing back skiing to the valley, there are some obstacles to overcome.

The ski hill has been idle and decaying for the past two years, but the Passion PlaySociety hopes to turn that around. The Passion Play Society is investigating what it would take to get the lift running

and how best to utilize the hill. Earlier this year the Passion Play Society bought the ski hill’s share of the property which made up the lower part of the hill (below the first chair lift tower). inSide photo by Michael James

“One of the problems is it hasn’t moved in two years. We got to look at how to protect it or make it usable. The bigger issues with the ski hill are changing weather patterns and the infrastructure. From what I understand, the pipes are in desperate need of repair and renovation. Some parts couldn’t even pump water,” said Neudorf.

Water is needed in the creation of artificial snow. Considering the lack of winter weather this past year, a lot of snow would’ve needed to be created. With the pumping system as it is now, it would’ve been an obstacle. The Passion Play is considering other recreational uses for the old ski hill. All ideas are being researched, including the possibil-

ity of mountain biking courses. “There has been an idea to use the area for mountain biking. I think there’s research that needs to be done. You put a trial on the rocks of the Rocky Mountains and you’re probably good for 15 years. You carve a trail in bentonite you might be good for two months. The first good rain and the trail is gone,” said Neudorf. “Bentonite is a different kettle of fish when thinking of how to utilize the site. We put up our own trails every year and as we do that, we create different erosion patterns that are going to change the shape of the hills. We’re going to have to look carefully at how work with the environment so things aren’t just short term.” For now, the Passion Play continues its research. They have contacted regulatory bodies to determine what has to be done to bring everything up to code. The Passion Play also welcomes ideas from residents as to what they would like to see. “There are a lot of ideas floating around. It’s going to take some time research the possibilities,” said Neudorf. “Anybody who has thoughts on what could happen should step and let us know.”

Reelin’ good at annual fishing derby Donella Swan | inSide Drumheller

Running in its 18th year, the Ryan Savary Memorial Fishing Derby will be held on August 25 at the Michichi Reservoir, with $600 in cash prizes to be won. Held in memory of Ryan, his father, Alex Savary, said it is a way to bring people together to enjoy a day of being in the outdoors and catching some fish. “It’s always a lovely bunch of people who come out every year, and it’s always a blast,” said Savary. Ryan passed away in 1993 when he was just 17

years old, after he was involved in a single-vehicle rollover accident. His father said he had three passions in life: fishing, golfing, and marathon running. “He was unfortunately taken away from us much too early, but this is one way we remember him,” said Savary. He said, shortly before his son’s passing, Ryan and his best friend, Greg St. Laurent had wanted to start up a fishing derby. Following his death, St. Laurent kickstarted the derby in his honour. Originally beginning in Hanna, the fishing derby was later moved to Michichi Reservoir.

“Ryan and Greg used to fish at Michichi quite often. People always love the fishing spot. I’ve travelled to many places and I can’t even match (Michichi) to anything,” said Savary. The derby runs from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 25. Entrants will be accepted until 11:00 a.m. and registration for the event must occur before fishing. Many prizes arewaiting to be won, including the $600 in cash winnings, as mentioned above. “I’m hoping to keep this derby going even long after I’m gone,” said Savary.

The

couldn’t have done it without the players” is a familiar joke among coaches who know that good players tend to make ordinary coaches good and good coaches great. Undoubtedly the sports coach with the highest profile in North America today is not in the NFL, NHL, NBA or Major League Baseball. The coach faced with the glare of the brightest spotlight in sports today is a Canadian who steers the swing of the world’s most famous golfer, Tiger Woods. His name is Sean Foley, a Torontonian who uses some unique golf ideas and some unusual philosophical approaches to steer his stable of golfers, which also includes Hunter Mahan and Justin Rose, both of whom are ranked among the world’s Top 15, as is Woods. Coaching Woods is not easy. Foley has gone from the equivalent of behind the scenes on golf ranges to Hollywood, where Tiger’s every swing tweak is analyzed, dissected and discussed by the golf industry. If Tiger plays well, Foley is a genius. If things go bad in Tigerland, the tabloids may be calling for his head. Rose says Foley is “technical without being mechanical,” according to a story on golfworld. com. Oddly, Foley attended Tennessee State, a predominately black college, on a golf scholarship, but always felt more comfortable on the range, working on his game and others’, than on the course. The golfworld.com story quoted his TSU roommate saying Foley kept a black garbage bag in his room filled with clippings of instruction

articles. His instruction dream led to a job at Glen Abbey, near Toronto, and he started helping Canadian Stephen Ames on the range one day. “ . . . He changed what I’d been trying to change for years,” Ames told golfworld.com Through Ames, Foley got to the inside of the PGA Tour and while Woods was going through coaches Butch Harmon and Hank Haney, he was on his way to reaching the low point in his golf career. Now that Foley has helped Woods get back on his game, the Canadian is getting much of the credit for the resurgence. While Foley stands only 5-foot-7, he is becoming a big, big man in the world of golf. • Among the stupid things in sports, by Norman Chad of the Washington Post: “Football players dumping Gatorade on their coach in the waning moments of a victory. First of all, this celebratory gesture lost its appeal about 2,700 gallons of Gatorade ago. Second of all, I’d consider it more appropriate to dump Gatorade on a coach after losing a game.” • Howard Rosenblatt of Albany, N.Y., as seen in Norman Chad’s ‘Slouch’ column: “If MLB’s All-Star Game had ended in a tie, would the seventh game of the World Series have been played at a neutral site?“

However, what many remember most about him was his devotion to the sport of golf. “It feels good to have the tournament keep going,” said Richard Zachariassen, Ray’s son. “He loved the sport. He probably golfed five to eight times a week during his last couple years.” “He was always an avid golfer and he was a big part of getting Akokiniskway up and running. He was always down there golfing.

He was also a devoted community member. Between his love of golf and his participation in the Lions, that’s how it came about,” said Peter Lauridsen, who is helping organize the event. For the past several years the Rosebud Lions have been organizing the tournament. The money raised goes towards various projects in the community. The money raised this year has not been earmarked as of yet. “The money we raise goes towards Rosebud community project. For example, a couple years ago we donated the money to help finish the addition on the Rosebud Centennial Museum. We also made a contribution to assist in completing the new fire hall. Like any small town, there’s always projects needing done.” said Lauridsen. The tournament is 18 holes, complete with hole prizes, entertain-

ment, auctions, and supper. The day opens with a brunch starting at 11 a.m. and the tournament begins at 1 p.m. After the golf is done, golfers are invited to supper at the Rosebud Community Hall. Prizes and auction items were donated from individuals and businesses from Rosebud and surrounding communities. “We get so much support from surrounding communities. We’re very grateful for the help we get,” said Lauridsen. There are still spots open for the tournament and registration will continue until Monday morning. Tickets are available by calling Lauridsen at (403) 3342378 and Michael Love at (403) 820-2356. “It’s a great opportunity for people in the community to get together, visit, have a good time, and support a great cause,” said Lauridsen.
