Town wants residents' input on move Michael James | inSide Drumheller

Town Hall has seen some of the most historic events in Drumheller and countless council meetings, but it’s time to move on. The Town of Drumheller is planning on moving its headquarters to the Civic Centre, the building that currently houses the Drumheller Public Library. Before anything is finalized, however, the Town of Drumheller wants residents to give their input. To that end, the Town of Drumheller is holding an information meeting on February 8 at 7:00 p.m in the Audio Visual Room at the Civic Centre. The architect, with the designs of the renovations in hand, town administration, and town council will be on hand to answer any questions residents may have. For the town, the move is a needed step. “It’s way past time. Since I started with council five and a half years ago, every time I walk in there I think 'Oh my god, we are not handicap accessible,'” said Mayor Terry Yemen. “You can’t even get to the main floor.” Moving to the Civic Centre would solve the accessibility problem as well as being more

There are a couple strategies being considered to pay for the renovations and move, such as applying for grants from the provincial government or shuffling town priorities. It is hoped that everything

would be complete by the fall. Residents who are concerned, interested, or have input on the project are encouraged to attend the meeting on February 8. “The engineers, some administration, and Council will be there,” said Mayor Yemen. “If anyone has any concerns or comments that’s what we’re here for.”

Relay for Life looking for volunteers Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

was one of the best performing events in the province. By its fourth year it hit the million-dollar mark. Last year the event topped $40,000 with just seven teams. This year’s event is slated for June 8 at the Drumheller Stampede and Ag Society. Last year’s organizer Shari Christensen says the committee is hoping for some new members to carry on the tradition. “The former committee is burnt out. We need an influx of new volunteers, that is for sure,” said Christensen. Christensen says that everyone has been touched by cancer and for her, working on Relay was a great way to pay tribute. “It is great fun, and I loved it. There is a lot of cancer in my family, so for me it

was a great way to try and do my part,” said Christensen. If you are interested in volunteering to help put on this year’s Relay for Life, contact Christensen at 403823-6739.

Parents in the community will soon be able to get connected to what’s going on for their tiny tykes thanks to the efforts of the Drumheller and Area Early Childhood Development (DECD) Coalition. The recently formed DECD Coalition and has received a grant from Alberta Education to promote education for kids in kindergarten and younger. The DECD Coalition is in the process of assessing the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development of children from birth to five years old through a survey. Greentree and St. Anthony’s Schools both participated. Michelle Hiscox, Early Childhood Development Coordinator, explained that while the results of the survey are still a month from being complete, the DECD Coalition has already begun work on the next step to identify the services available in Drumheller, Delia, and Carbon. “The goal is to find what we have and don’t have, and then build on what we don’t. I’ll be going around the community to the different service providers and find out what’s available, from counselling to physical activity,” said Hiscox. The DECD Board and volunteers will then be presented with the information and will determine ways to address the identified needs. “Some areas we could look at are counselling and social development. I think there’s always room to increase access. That’s one of the things we’d like to do, is build on that and possibly do some fundraising to address the areas where we find need,” said Hiscox. To get the information out to parents the plan is to create a resource book. “One of the things that’s missing, that the project will do, is give parents a resource base. We’ll be putting together a book on what’s available, who does it, and how to contact them so parents have an easy access,” said Hiscox. Another initiative will be creating a children’s fair to showcase the services that are available for parents in the area. “What we want to do is showcase service providers in Drumheller who can assist kids with development. We’ll have it open and accessible during hours when parents are available,” said Hiscox. The DECD Coalition believes that early childhood development sets the course for a child’s future and deter-

mines how well children will do in school, their physical and mental heath, behaviour, relationships, and well-being. Members of the community, from service providers, parents, educators, and businesses, are a part of the DECD Coalition.

“With everybody working in a partnership, with the community to support it, I think that’s how it’ll be successful,” said Hiscox. “I think it’s really important, because as a parent I wasn’t completely aware of all we have in Drumheller. I am aware of a few gaps in services, but if the community comes together it’s going to be a huge benefit for all the kids in our community.” The next meeting of the DECD Coalition is today at 2:00 p.m. in the Civic Centre Audio Visual Room, but Hiscox welcomes inquiries from service providers or parents anytime. “Parents are a big part of the equation,” said Hiscox. “We need their support and input to find out what needs to be done.”

HAPPENINGS

Music Festival approaches Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

The date is set, registrations have closed, and venues have been booked. In less than two months the valley will be filled with music. This will be the 72nd year for the Drumheller and District Music Festival. The event runs from March 12 in venues throughout the valley, and concludes with its final concert on March 23 at Greentree School. Doug Wade of the organizing committee says they could always use more volunteers, both on the committee and during the festival to manage venues. The festival showcases a wide array of disciplines including piano, band, instrumental, dance, musical theater, vocal, choir and speech. Thousands of young Drumhellerites have participated in the music festival over its illustrious history, and many have gone on to successful careers in their disciplines.

The Drumheller and District Music Festival starts March 12 and will conclude on with the final performance March 23 at Greentree School.

Names such as Jaydee Bixby, David Schumacher and Rob Shapiro come to mind as examples of past performers who have gone on to success in the music industry. The next crop of performers may have that same talent and drive to succeed. Registrations closed on January 12, and the committee has already confirmed a talented slate of adjudicators who will encourage and mentor each performer in their craft. Performers are rewarded with trophies, scholarships and the opportunity to go on to provincial music festival competitions. Doug Wade of the organizing committee says they could always use more volunteers, both on the committee and during the festi-

Four names to be added to Cenotaph Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

When the Cenotaph is dedicated this coming spring, there will be four more names added to the Honour Roll of men from Drumheller who fought and died for freedom. The Drumheller Cenotaph was moved to its new place of prominence in front of the Badlands Community Facility last fall in time for Remembrance Day Ceremonies. The Legion is planning a ceremony to rededicate the newly refurbished Cenotaph, and through the work of a local history bu, four more names will be added. In fact, they are hoping to have some of the remaining family members of the additions attend the ceremony. Reg Bennett has completed an extensive Honour Roll of Drumheller community members who served Canada. In fact, he has completed the project for a number of Alberta communities and presents them to the local Legion Branches or libraries. Through his research he has come across names that were not known at the time the Cenotaph was erected,

including the son of one of Drumheller’s founding fathers. Reginald Greentree, son of Thomas Patrick Greentree served in World War II with the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals. He died on December 16, 1944 at the age of 32 and is buried in a Canadian War Cemetery in Belgium. According to the Hills of Home, Reginald was born in 1912 and left the valley after 1926 and went with his father to Grande Prairie. It is not known where he enlisted, but his name does appear on a memorial plaque in the Onaping Falls Legion in Ontario. He left behind his wife and one child. Another name that Bennett came across was Lieutenant Charles Alain Chisnall who served in World War I. He was the youngest of three and was born in 1888 in Essex, England. At the time he joined up, he was a farmer and enlisted in Rosedale, Alberta. He served with 2 Squadron RFC/RAF. He died on May 28, 1919 at Ripon Military Hospital and is buried at Ripon Cemetery, England.

“I found him by accident when I was working on Morrin or Munson,â€? said Bennett. Another name is James Charles Preisig. The son of Cecil and Irene of Rosedale, he served with the Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. One hint Bennett received of Preisig’s service was from a letter published in The Forty-Niner, the oďŹƒcial publication of the 49th Battalion the Loyal Edmonton Regiment, in 1948. “In a letter from Mrs. Peterson, she informs us her son Frank was attending the last session of the Alberta University, but unfortunately sickness did not allow of our visiting him. Her daughter, Sigrid, was married on April 3, and we wish her the very best for the future. They see 'Slim' Preisig frequently as he lives at Rosedale, and you will all be sorry to know he lost his only son, May 28, 1946. He had served overseas in the army, and developed a severe illness in Holland. Our belated sympathy is hereby extended to Slim and his family.â€? He was just 25, and was buried in Drumheller. “His dad was the ďŹ rst caretaker of the Rosedale School, and apparently he built the ďŹ rst skating rink, outside of the creek in Rosedale,â€? said Bennett. Another interesting tale comes with the service of Private George Hill Brown. He didn’t die on the battleďŹ elds of Europe, but in the mines of East Coulee. Private Brown was born in Cumbria, England, and resided in Bienfait, Saskatchewan and was working as a miner when he enlisted in Regina in late 1941. After he joined up he was

put into Active Service not in the trenches, but the mines. Because of the strategic signiďŹ cance of the coal industry during wartime, his service was in mining. On January 4, 1944, Brown was a driver in the Atlas Coal Mine, East Coulee. He slipped under a coal car and fractured his pelvis. He died two days later from internal injuries. He was 38. Bennett has been looking in to ďŹ nding surviving members of these four families. He has made contact with Greentree’s great granddaughter, who lives in Grande Prairie. Bennett said she is planning on contacting other members of the family to come for the ceremony. The dedication will take place on June 6. If anyone has a contact for any of the above families, they can contact Bennett at 403-334-1141.

Town starts moving into Badlands Community Facility February 6 Michael James | inSide Drumheller

The moment valley residents have been waiting for is a little closer. The Town of Drumheller will start moving into the field house and fitness centre of the Badlands Community Facility on February 6. Dawson Wallace, the contractors, are tantalizingly close to completing, cleaning, and vacating the field house and fitness areas. Afterwards, the town and contractors will have joint occupancy and the town can start moving in.

The senior staff of the facility will bring over equipment and furniture that has been in storage at public works. Everything will be inventoried, assembled, and organized. The contractors will still be in other parts of the building. As areas are completed, the facility staff will move everything in. “On the sixth of February we get the field house and fitness centre. The next two areas that will probably be done are the lobby and the library. After that, the meeting rooms

and dining hall. The kitchen is going to be the last thing finished,” said Guy Latour, Business Manager of the facility. The week after the joint occupancy date, the remaining staff arrive and begin training. “There’s a lot of training to do because we’re all new to it,” said Latour. Prior to opening, the staff must be well versed in customer service, point of sale, fitness and sporting equipment, emergency procedures, and the particulars of each area of the diverse building. Apple Fitness will return

later in February to set up the fitness equipment. As opening day draws near, plans are being made to showcase what the facility can offer. Ideas being considered are offering tours to sports leagues who have expressed interest in using the field house and having an open house, complete with activities and tours. A volunteer program is in the works as well. More information about the facility events and programs will be released in February. The news of joint occupancy comes as a relief, because of

the Sports Recreation and Arts Expo and Canadian Badlands conference planned at the facility in March. It is expected that at the current pace the events will continue in the facility as planned. The news generates the same excitement and anticipation a new homeowner feels when awaiting their possession date. “The joint occupancy was a big thing for us, because it’s indicating that we’re close,” said Latour. “It’s got me super excited. I’m ready to move everything over there myself!”

311 Centre Street, Drumheller • 403-823-8825

Horoscopes ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, reflect on happy times and then try to recreate that feeling when you are experiencing moments of stress this week. This might offer some welcome relief.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Sometimes you don't think before you speak, Libra. Avoid blurting out the first thing that comes to mind. Friends and family may forgive you, but coworkers might not.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, a conflict of interest leads you on a wild goose chase to find something that everyone will agree upon. Opinions are strong so don't expect this to be easy.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Big plans are in the works that will require your supreme organizational skills, Scorpio. Others actually look to you to plan all of their events because of your talents.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, success takes lots of hard work and you need to recognize you can't please everyone. But it is a good goal to work toward for the next few days.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, baiting someone into an argument seems to be your modus operandi this week. This is certainly no way to win favors with anyone. Think this tactic through.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Rethink your plan of attack, Cancer. While the idea has merit, there are some big gaps between ideas that can lead to too much confusion. Go back to the drawing board.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, save some time for romance and relaxation. A special someone could be feeling neglected lately and will need some quiet time with you.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, step back from a difficult situation and you will get a better idea of the bigger picture. Things are not as important as you once believed. Time for fun arrives on Thursday.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Accept help graciously, Aquarius. Such help is not always easily offered. There will be a few hectic moments this week, but otherwise the next few days will be calm.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, shopping strictly for the best bargain might not be the best approach. The deal actually could be too good to be true. Factor in all the information.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, a remarkable insight comes to you and you cannot contain your elation over it. Spread the word ... fast!

Stitch by stitch the knitters at the Pioneer Trail Centre are helping to make the 2012 Special Olympics in St. Albert a special event for the hundreds of athletes participating. The 2012 Canada Special Olympic Games are being held in Alberta. Leading up to the games, the organizers put a call out to those handy with needles and hooks to make scarves for the 650 athletes, families, supporters, coaches and volunteers. The goal of the Scarf Project was to have volunteers knit their way to 2,500 scarves. The directions are simple: pick out the yarn, wool or blends, make sure it is blue

and white, and liven it up with a splash of “maple leaf red.” The scarves were to be seven inches wide and about 6 feet long. The last step is to send off the scarves to the games, and watch the contribution become a treasured keepsake to remember the games. The Pioneer Trail Centre certainly has a gaggle of those who are handy with needles, and they put together a collection of about 30 scarves… each made with love, and destined to be worn with pride. The 2012 Special Olympic Games Canada runs from February 28 to March 3. The first Canada Special Olympic Games were held in Toronto in 1969.

New playoffs build road from AJHL to national championships Michael James | inSide Drumheller

What could be better than being declared the Alberta Junior Hockey League champion? How about being the Western Canadian Champion? Or even the National Junior A Champion? The Canadian Junior Hockey League, an umbrella that includes junior hockey leagues from across Canada, announced on January 16 the creation of new playoffs that will include the top teams from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. The champions of each provincial league will join a selected host team and compete for the honour of be-

ing the Western Canadian Champions. The tournament will include a roundrobin schedule followed by two semifinal games and a championship game. The champion and the runner-up would then represent Western Canada at the RBC Cup National Junior A Championship. “Congratulations to the four western leagues on this significant step in the growth of Junior A hockey in Western Canada and across the country,” said CJHL Chairman Kirk Lamb. “The new championship format will create a tremendous opportunity to showcase our players, teams and communities and is yet another example of the strengthening relation-

ship among Junior A leagues in Canada. I commend the four western leagues on partnering together in the development of this initiative.” The tournament will start in 2013 and will be hosted in Nanaimo, B.C. It won’t be until 2015 that the tournament will come to Alberta. For example, should the Drumheller Dragons win the AJHL championship, they would go on to compete for the Western Canadian Championship and could go on be declared the National Junior A Champions. Cheer the Dragons hard and Drumheller could reign over Canada as hockey champions.

Sam Lawson sends a bullet of a shot at the net in the Dragons game against the St. Albert Steel on January 21. A new playoff tournament for all of the Western Canadian Junior A hockey leagues has implications for the Dragons. Should the Dragons be champions of the AJHL, they would start down a road that could lead them to play for the top prize of the National Junior A Hockey Championship. inSide photo by Michael James

Smart people coming together is where real creative solutions come from. Seriously, it’s who we look for, because it’s exactly what Alberta needs.

Raptors on the attack and looking forward to playos It’s been a busy two weeks for the various Raptor teams. The teams had a hard schedule and many are poised to make some serious headway into their respective playos. The DMHA Raptors have been dominating their tier. Against Chestermere on January 14 they won by a lopsided 14-2 and 9-3 the next day against a strong Siksika team. The wins ensure they are ďŹ rst in their tier. The Canalta Novice Raptors played on the road against Cochrane on January 15. The Canalta Raptors got the lead early but Cochrane managed to tie the game up by the end. The MacDonald’s Novice Raptors had a rough weekend on January 14 and 15, losing both of their games. The Novice teams hosted a tournament this past weekend. For more information, see the January 25 edition of The Drumheller Mail. The Yavis Atom Raptors have had some tough luck as of late, losing against High

River on January 14 and tieing Indus on January 15. The game against Indus was especially heartbreaking. A potential game winning goal for the Raptors in the dying seconds was declared void, because the net had been knocked free. The Encana Atom Raptors had a huge weekend two weeks ago. On January 14 the team played Carstairs and handed them their ďŹ rst loss of the season. The next day the team tied a challenging Nanton team, who are currently one of the top teams in the league.

way to the ďŹ nals, they ďŹ nished in second place. The NGC Pee Wee Raptors are having a good season this year. This past weekend the team participated in a tournament in Medicine Hat and ďŹ nished in ďŹ rst place. The NGC Pee Wee’s are o to a good start in provincials, winning 3-2 on January 24 over Indus. It was a close game, tied 0-0 at the start of the third period. “We’ve lost to these guys previously in league play, so this was a good boost for the team,â€? said Manager Christy Telford. The NGC Pee Wee’s had a rematch against Indus on January 26, but the results were not available at press time. The Bertram Drilling/ Sports Room Midget Raptors have been on ďŹ re since the new year began. The team has registered four wins and

one loss in the ďŹ ve games they have played so far. “We’ve been doing well, we’ve lost just one game since the new year. We’re starting to gel and come together,â€? said head coach Darren Toan. “We look forward to the playos, and trying to win the kids a banner.â€? The Boston Pizza/Western Chevrolet Bantam Raptors have continued to gain momentum since their tournament at the beginning of January. In the past two weeks the Bantam Raptors have racked up another four wins and a tie. Provincials have just begun, with a few of the Raptors aiming to make an impact and hopefully come home as champions.
