Editor inSide Drumheller Dear Editor, I attended the Property Rights Task Force meeting in Olds on January 11 with over 300 people. The laws that had previous opposition, and had since been defiantly passed, were now being discussed at this meeting. To what end? Bill 19 destroys the Expropriation Act, which ensures a citizen is treated fairly and made financially whole when

making process from the public and any boards such as the Alberta Utilities Commission. It has now gone into backrooms of Cabinet. This has personally affected her. She had two large power line towers running through her quarter and she had just been told they were building a third one beside. Their equipment does not fit between these towers and a third would greatly reduce their ability to farm the land. There was no Commission to hear and act upon her complaints. No justice, just hopelessness. She said that Alberta would have to pay $16 billion for the new power lines to the USA and then they would be given to privately owned

transmission companies. She had heard that our power rates would triple. She wanted to know why the Government would give away the publicly funded assets of Albertans? There was also much discussion on Bill 24, which will cost another $2 billion for the Carbon Capture Program. Many people were very upset. This law eliminates expropriation and compensation and any Court from interfering or demanding justice.

their land is taken. It has the power to confiscate your land and freeze a persons land from 20 to 40 years with no compensation. Numerous citizens were furious at the government for legislating their rights away. Another brought up that Bill 36 completely removes a landowner’s access to the courts for justice and opens the door to absolute Government power and Corruption. These laws are an unprecedented legislation in a Western Democracy. He said he would leave Alberta if these laws were not rescinded. A woman expressed great frustration and hopelessness. She stated that Bill 50 now had taken away any decision-

The 2011 Drumheller RCMP Municipal Detachment statistics for 2011 have been released, and compared to 2010, it appears the numbers are down. According to the numbers, incidents of Criminal Code files against persons have gone from 283 in 2010 to 217 in 2011. Property related complaints have dropped from 581 in 2010 to 411 in 2011. Items designated as “other Criminal Code” have risen from 234 to 248. Overall this is a reduction of about 20 per cent. Staff Sergeant Art Hopkins cautions that reading into these numbers does not necessarily mean there has been a decrease in crime or workload at the RCMP detachment. He explains there are many factors. “Why do we have a reduction in crime? Is there less crime? There might be,” said Hopkins. “Is it that the crime is down, or is the reporting reduced? It might be a combination of both. When I look out in the bullpen, the guys are busy.” Other factors such as how incidents are reported or how outreach programs may have been functioning can also play a role in the statistics.

“We might be more be effective in what we are doing, crime may be reduced, and more involvement in community groups maybe reducing

it would not show up under criminal investigations. On the illegal drug front, the numbers have dipped as well. Charges for drug production were up from three to five instances. Possession charges remained even at 113, trafficking was down from 29 to 23. This year there were a number of seizures with values in the thousands of dollars.

“I like to see the community as a whole. I don’t see a lot of changes since last year, I don’t see a lot of changes bad or good. I see a healthy community, a relatively happy community, and I see a community that has a lot of things going on for residents.”

crime. Overall what we are doing appears to be working,” said Hopkins. He said the statistics might not reflect all of the responsibilities encompassed by the police force. For example, this year they are piloting the Duke of Edinburgh Award. The police are also involved in more extensive investigations such as fraud. One example he cites is the two in-custody deaths at the Drumheller Institution on Christmas Eve. Hundreds of hours could be dedicated to such an investigation, yet

In the same period, clearance rates of criminal charges have remained relatively even. The overall average for 2011 is 54 per cent, compared to 52 per cent, the greatest increase was in Criminal Code Persons, which went from an 81 per cent clearance to 89 per cent clearance. Property related criminal incidents stayed stable going from 29 per cent to 28 per cent.

While he said the clearance rate for property incidents seems low, this is due to the nature of the crime. Often, there are no suspects and long lag times. For example, if something is stolen, it may not be noticed for days before it is reported, or if a vehicle is broken into or vandalized at night, it may not be noticed until morning. Whereas in a crime against a person, such as an assault or a threat, the suspect is often known or recognizable. Hopkins also explains the clearance rates for crimes against a person could also be skewed by incidents at the Drumheller Institution. “We have assaults at the Drumheller Institution. We know they are assaults, they are reported as a person crime, but neither one will say anything,” said Hopkins. The bottom line for Hopkins is Drumheller is a relatively safe and community-minded town where neighbours know each other. “I like to see the community as a whole. I don’t see a lot of changes since last year, I don’t see a lot of changes bad or good. I see a healthy community, a relatively happy community, and I see a community that has a lot of things going on for residents,” said Hopkins.

DinoFest celebrates dinosaur heritage In June of this year, residents and tourists alike will have a chance to show their dino-pride in DinoFest 2012, a celebration of all things dinosaur. Dinosaurs have been known to be in the Drumheller area for over 130 years, but it wasn’t until well after the coal industry had gone extinct that dinosaurs spurred the revitalization of the town. The Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce, Canalta Hotels, Festival Seekers, and the Royal Tyrrell Museum have banded together to celebrate the impact the extinct animals have had on the community. “There are a lot of interesting things happening in Alberta in regards to palaeontology,” said Jim Barr, president of Festival Seekers. “It makes Alberta an attractive destina-

tion for anyone interested in dinosaurs, so why not capitalize on that with a festival celebrating that fact?” Next year will be a big year for dinosaurs. A new dinosaur museum is opening in Grande Prairie and Disney/Pixar and the BBC are both producing multi-million dollar dinosaur films. “DinoFest will be a great opportunity to boost our shoulder season visitation,” explains Heather Bitz, General Manager of the Chamber of Commerce. “Our primary target market is going to be Edmonton, and our marketing efforts will encourage Edmontonians to trek to Drumheller for the weekend to take part in the events and discover our community.” The event will offer a blend of family-friendly activities, such as a prehistoric scavenger hunt, presentations by the Tyrrell scientists, a dinosaur

Warm winter weather speeds new Chinook construction Michael James | inSide Drumheller

The aptly named Chinook Credit Union is getting help from its namesake. The warm weather has ensured that construction on the new home of the Drumheller branch of Chinook has proceeded without any delays. “Everything has been run well and we’ve been blessed by the warm weather,” said Stuart Hill, Vice President of Corpo-

rate Services. The unseasonally high temperatures have given no opportunities for construction to be delayed. It is estimated the building will be complete by the end of September. At this time, construction is focused on erecting the steel framework for the building. Residents passing by will see the walls and roof being put in place starting within the next four weeks.

It will be a significant building within Drumheller.”

Co-op continues support for local community groups Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

The Drumheller Co-op’s Community Care Till Tape Program is still going strong and its latest installment paid out $13,984 to 33 community groups. The program, which gives community groups a simple way to generate funding, has given more than $230,000 to local clubs and non-profit organizations since its inception. The payouts are twice a year. In combining the previous payout in July, in 2011 the Coop distributed $26,610, the most since 2005. The average annual dis-

bursement is about $21,000. The Co-op’s Community Care Till Tape program is easy. A community group or organization simply collects Co-op till receipts and submits them to the Drumheller Co-op. In turn, a portion of the dollar total on the receipts are returned to the community group. The Co-op is also active in supporting community groups in other ways. In 2011 the Co-op, through sponsoring events, prize donations and its gift card program has contributed about $21,000 back to the community, making its grand total over $47,000.

On January 26, the Drumheller Co-op’s Community Cares Till Tape Program distributed $13,984 to 33

community groups, for a total of $26,610 in 2011. This is the greatest payout since 2005. inSide photo by Patrick Kolafa

When the analytical and the creative sides of the brain work together, better solutions are born. We call that “whole brain” thinking—and we do a lot of that here. Because people who think like whole-brainers are way more likely to come up with creative solutions. Seriously, it’s who we look for at ATB, because it’s exactly what Alberta needs.

Hope Health looks to establish clinic, research centre


The Hope Health Initiative is taking another step forward, and shifting its focus to make a post secondary education institution in the valley a reality. Hope College remains at the heart of Hope Health Ventures, and they are continuing to look at using the St. Anthonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School in Riverside after the school moves to its new facility on North Dinosaur Trail. However, Jon Ohlhauser, project leader, says other branches of the vision, including Hope Clinic and Hope Research, are very important. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are waking up some brands we had initially identiďŹ ed about a year ago. For the last year we focused on the college brand, but we always had the clinic and the research brand as part of the overall strategy,â&#x20AC;? said Ohlhauser. He said there are opportunities to move forward with the clinic and research components. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always thought our path forward would be to start the college, get it going, then start the clinic, then start the research centre. We may change the order of that,â&#x20AC;? said Ohlhauser. Part of that forward momentum is to generate ďŹ nancial support for the initiative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The province isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to start a publically funded college in Drumheller, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve asked for that for 30 years. So if we are going to start a college, yes we need that start-up support and we are very grateful for the folks pledging, but we have to have this sustainable on its own, and one of the ways towards that sustainability is to have additional revenue streams.â&#x20AC;?

The research and the clinic are two possible revenue streams that could support the college, and the venture is looking at moving forward those fronts.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always thought our path forward would be to start the college, get it going, then start the clinic, then start the research centre. We may change the order of thatâ&#x20AC;? Jon Ohlhauser

Ohlhauser explains the spectre of a proďŹ t clinic in the health care industry in Alberta is certain to raise eyebrows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are other ways a clinic can support a college, it can provide placements for training and we want it to do that, but it also needs to, somewhere along the line, make a cash transfer that helps the college function,â&#x20AC;? said Ohlhauser. They have found an opportunity to focus on naturopathic health care, which would not conďŹ&#x201A;ict with publicly funded delivery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our philosophy is that naturopathics, we believe, are best understood as they complement (mainstream healthcare),â&#x20AC;? said Ohlhauser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are some perspectives in the health world that view naturopathics as alternativeâ&#x20AC;Ś we want to respect the care and advances that mainstream has to oďŹ&#x20AC;er, but acknowledge that there are some natural treatments that can complement and augment.â&#x20AC;? He said alternative medicine involves a large array of care and treatment. Interestingly enough it is most widely accepted in Western Canada,

and it is growing. In Alberta he explains the larger urban centres are well served by naturopathic care. There is an opportunity for the Hope Clinic to serve a wide region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look at Drumheller and points east and northeast from here, that is a region that is under served from a naturopathic standpoint,â&#x20AC;? said Ohlhauser.

more than just a revenue stream. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there would be some additional momentum if we could establish and begin to deliver on the clinical side, which would create additional synergies, plus there would be administrative support additionally to provide for the development of the college component,â&#x20AC;? said Ohlhauser.

through the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association. Previous to Kananaskis, he worked at Wascana Country Club in Regina. He also worked at BanďŹ&#x20AC; Springs and Speargrass. During his studies he was nominated and awarded the Future Superintendent of the Year Award and received an internship where he worked on some of golf â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most hallowed courses in the UK in-

cluding St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Kingsbarns, Gullane, Castle Stuart, and MuirďŹ eld. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have had the chance to work on prairie golf courses, mountain golf courses and over in Ireland and Scotland,â&#x20AC;? he said. Westman said over the last few years Dinosaur Trail has concentrated on improving and building facilities. Now it wants to focus on making the course better. We want to direct more funds to the golf course itself. We thought we were okay, but we want to make it great. We want to be the course on your list you have to go and play,â&#x20AC;? said Westman. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting that there is forward movement. We are changing the culture and hopefully people want to be a part of it.â&#x20AC;? Another change at the course is that it has taken on Laurie Slezak as events coordinator to oversee bookings and functions for the facility.

14 romantic movies to share on Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Dinner and a movie has been a dating staple for generations. On Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, couples often opt to stick with what works and dine out and then catch a ďŹ&#x201A;ick -either at the theater or curled up on the sofa at home. Choosing the right movie may take some compromise. He may believe a sexy James Bondtype girl dodging explosives and sports cars is the ultimate in cinematic excellence. She may believe it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a good movie unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve used a full box of tissues. However, the movie industry and others may have their own thoughts on what constitutes an ideal Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day movie, or one that can be enjoyed when you desire to put a little romance in the air. Here are 14 movies deemed very romantic. See if they will be the right ďŹ t for your movie night. 1. Dirty Dancing: This 1980s ďŹ&#x201A;ick stands the test of time 25

years later. Baby, a good girl from an aďŹ&#x201E;uent family, falls in love with Johnny, a drifter dance instructor, while sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on a family vacation at a Catskills summer resort. This movie showcases that sometimes love transcends prestige, personal status and well-meaning fathers. 2. Titanic: Another classic movie where love trumps social class, Rose and Jack fall in love aboard the doomed ship. Their passionate connection survives a tragedy and the ultimate separation. 3. Princess Bride: A Rob Reiner movie, this fairytale tells the story of Buttercup and Wesley, a poor farm boy who wins the love of his employer. When Wesley is presumed dead and Buttercup becomes engaged to an area prince whom she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t love,

DID YOU KNOW? The modern day incarnation of Saint Valentine's Day might very well be rooted in the fiction of noted English author Geoffrey Chaucer during the High Middle Ages. During this time period, the tradition of courtly love began to flourish, and it was in Chaucer's "Parlement of Foules" that the association of Valentine's Day with romantic love was first broached. The poem was written to honor the first anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II to Anne of Bohemia. The poem is set within the context of an old lover's tradition. However, no such tradition existed before Chaucer. While literary theorists continue to debate Chaucer's role in the formation of the traditions associated with the modern day Valentine's Day, those who are not fond of the day might consider blaming one of the history's most notorious bards for whatever inconvenience the day provides them.

Valentine's Day Trivia

viewers are taken on an adventure that shows that even death cannot stop true love. 4. Gone With the Wind: If a classic romance is what you desire, look no further than this epic ďŹ lm. Scarlett Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hara is a conspiring woman who wants to choose her own husband, but ends up in the arms of rascal Rhett Butler amid the drama of the Civil War. 5. Pretty Woman: Despite a controversial storyline that puts Richard Gere and Julia Roberts together -- heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a businessman and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a prostitute -- the theme of the movie is how love has no social boundaries, and sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better to look beyond oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own backyard for the love of your life. 6. Legends of the Fall: A tragic but inspiring tale of three brothers who all fall in love with the same woman, Susannah, for diďŹ&#x20AC;erent reasons, although only one eventually marries her in the end. Family strife and complications show the darker side of love. 7. A Room With a View: Lucy vacations in Italy, where she meets people who are more passion-driven than those in her native Britain. When she meets Julian, a Brit who has been in Italy a while and has learned the wiles of romance, she is drawn into a liaison that she soon regrets. 8. Sleepless in Seattle: Sam loses his wife Maggie and has to raise his son, Jonah alone in their

new hometown of Seattle. Annie, a Baltimore reporter, hears his heartbreaking tale when Jonah calls into a self-help radio talk show on Christmas Eve. Annie becomes fascinated with Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story and wonders if they should meet. 9. Bridget Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diary: A modern day â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pride and Prejudice,â&#x20AC;? Bridget is a single woman in her 30s who has a poor selfimage and is also in a pseudorelationship with her scoundrel boss, played by Hugh Grant. Bridget is consistently thrown into circumstances that involve a family friend, Mark Darcy, whom Bridget sees as uptight and boring. Eventually, however, she sees a diďŹ&#x20AC;erent side of the supposedly boring lawyer. If you prefer the original tale, watch â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pride and Prejudiceâ&#x20AC;? starring Keira Knightly. 10. 50 First Dates: This quirky movie tells the tale of Henry, a bachelor and player who meets Lucy, a person with short-term memory amnesia who forgets everything from the day once she goes to sleep. Reliving day after day, Lucy starts to fall for Henry, who does his best to be memorable. 11. An AďŹ&#x20AC;air to Remember: Handsome playboy Nicky falls in love with Terry, a nightclub singer, while on a cruise from Europe to New York, despite eachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engagement to other people. They

agree to reconnect in six months atop the Empire State Building to see if they should continue their relationship. But Terry experiences a situation that keeps her from their meeting, leaving Nicky to wonder if her love has waned. 12. The Notebook: Allie and Noah meet at a carnival and fall in love but are kept from each other by Allieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disapproving parents who move her away. Allie waits several years to hear from Noah before getting engaged to another, but then must satisfy her curiosity whether Noah is alright. 13. The Holiday: Two women from diďŹ&#x20AC;erent parts of the world agree to swap homes for Christm a s and enjoy a vacation from their own lives. Iris travels from London to Beverly Hills, while Amanda goes from her opulent life to Irisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; small cottage in Surrey. Both eventually meet their romantic matches in their new locales but fret over what to do once the holiday ends. 14. Ever After: An interpretation of the classic Cinderella story, the movie follows Danielle, who is treated poorly by her stepmother and stepsisters after her father suddenly passes away. A bit of a hellion, Danielle catches the eye of Prince Henry, who believes her to be a courtess and not the lowly servant girl she really is.

Dynos fall in OT versus Redmen, bounce back against Trochu Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller There is no love lost between the Acme Redmen and the DVSS Dynos and last Monday night the battle played out again. The Dynos topped the Redmen just a couple of weeks ago at their home tournament. On Monday, January 30 they met in Acme for league play. “The game was a repeat of the two teams’ first match up, going back and forth with either team unable to pull away,” said coach Jeff Messom.

Down the stretch, Acme had a five-point advantage, and looked like they were pulling away. That was until Kyle Smith stepped up with some big shots, and even bigger free throws, to tie the game at 69 each. With three seconds left, the Dynos made a key defensive stop and gained possession for a chance to win. Acme’s tight defense didn’t let that happen, forcing overtime. In the extra minutes, the Redmen were able to put together some key offense while the Dy-


nos struggled, and Acme went on to win 82-73. Smith had 26 points on 11 for 16 shooting, Jordan Britton had 15 points and Alex Cliche had 14 points and seven rebounds. League play for the Dynos continued Wednesday night as they hosted Trochu. It was a one sided affair as it took until the second quarter before Trochu made it on to the scoreboard. Jordan Britton led the way with 24 points on 66 per cent shooting the dynos defeated Trochu 91-20.

Sabres place fourth at Forestburg tourney Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller The St. Anthony’s Senior Boys Sabres placed fourth at a tournament in Forestburg over the weekend. The Sabres were primed to play last Friday as they opened the tournament versus Cornerstone School, but it didn’t come easy. The Sabres pulled out a five-point win edging Cornerstone 79-74. Tanner Borowicz had 30 points and 30 rebounds to go with five steals. Jordan Comstock had 26 points. They weren’t done Friday as they took on Alix, and were able to dispose of them 72-38. “It was a good effort all around,” said head coach Dan Patterson. Comstock had 16 points and eight rebounds, while Borowicz had 14 points and 13 boards. This put them up against Daysland on Saturday

afternoon. The team was frustrated as the game went on and fell 65-35. Borowicz came through with 12 points and 29 boards, TJ Jones had seven points and three steals. This put the Sabres up against Rundle Academy for third place. It was a nail biter. “Great energy, great enthusiasm, they played their hearts out,” said Patterson. “They went out there with all they had but a few turnovers near the end of the game cost them the win. Best game they’ve played as a team, morale wise.” The Sabres fell 67-61. Borowicz was again huge with 24 points, 13 rebounds and 10 steals. Comstock had 15 points and six boards, while Jones had 12 points and four steals. This weekend they are heading to Rosemary for more tournament play. Currently Rosemary is ranked sixth in the province.

Rampaging Raptors racing towards playoďŹ&#x20AC;s Michael James | inSide Drumheller

The Drumheller Raptors season is starting to wind down and by the end of February players will be hanging up their jerseys and skates for a long summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nap. Before that happens, many of the Raptors have a chance to prove their mettle in provincial playoďŹ&#x20AC;s. The Canalta Novice Raptors are working to climb the ranks and secure a spot in the playoďŹ&#x20AC;s. The weekend didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start oďŹ&#x20AC; well for the Canalta Raptors when they made the trek to High Country to face one of the toughest teams in their tier. The Canalta Raptors lost, but came back the next day at home with a 8-4 win over Fort MacLeod. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a good win for the kids,â&#x20AC;? said head coach Curt Notland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making a run at playoďŹ&#x20AC;s. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in sixth position, ďŹ ghting to make it to fourth.â&#x20AC;? The McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Novice Raptors struggled over the weekend, losing their games in BanďŹ&#x20AC; on January 28 and Blackie the next day. The McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Raptors will be heading back to

BanďŹ&#x20AC; on February 4 to get some payback. The DMHA Raptors spent the weekend on the road. On January 28, the DMHA Raptors were in Strathmore and came out with a tie. The next day the team returned to their winning ways with a 5 to 4 victory over Siksika. The DMHA Novice Raptors entered the weekend at the top of their tier and came through the weekend still in ďŹ rst place. They have a critical game on February 4 against Brooks, the current second place team. The Yavis Atom Raptors had a tough loss this past weekend to High River. The team is looking forward to a tournament in Bowden this weekend, featuring teams from south-central Alberta. The tournament will give the Yavis Raptors a chance to play against teams outside of their league. The Hi-Way 9 Pee Wee Raptors had several games this past week, two of which were provincials. On January 28, the HiWay 9 Raptors played a regular season game against Cremona at home and won 7-4. The NGC Pee Wee Raptors faced a setback in their

Haylea Crone rushes past the defence of the Cremona Cowboys on Saturday, January 28. The HiWay 9 Pee Wee Raptors went on to win the game 7-4. The next day the team was in Morrin for their

race to playoďŹ&#x20AC;s. On January 27, the team hosted Strathmore and were defeated 5-2. The next afternoon, the NGC Raptors fought back from 5-0 to ďŹ nish the game with a tie. The NGC Raptors are holding on to a playoďŹ&#x20AC; spot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping the other teams lose and we win our

provincial tryouts. All of the Raptors are entering their final month of the season and many of the teams are competing in provincials.

last three games to make it to the playoďŹ&#x20AC;s,â&#x20AC;? said manager Christy Telford. The Bertram Drilling/ Sports Room Midget Raptors were busy last week, playing four games in four days. On January 26, the Midget Raptors started provincials on the right foot with an 8-5 victory over Kneehill. The team continued the momentum the next day with an 8-0 win against Okotoks. The Midget Raptors couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep the pace on January 29 when they faced Prairie High in Three Hills and lost 4-2. The team was dealt a 4-2 loss in their second provincial game the next day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was pretty rough, the boys were tired,â&#x20AC;? explained Darren ToďŹ&#x20AC;an, head coach. The win on January 26

puts the Midget Raptors through to the second round of provincials. The Boston Pizza/Western Chevrolet Raptors were on the warpath last week. The team started things oďŹ&#x20AC; on January 25 by demolishing Brooks in provincials by a staggering 17-2. The Bantam Raptors continued the rampage with a 14-1 win over Medicine Hat and an 8-4 victory over Claresholm on January 29. The regular season for minor hockey is slowing down. However, the playoďŹ&#x20AC;s are heating up with a few of the Raptors ready to strike at the championships.
