Gerhard Schwarz, ATCO Electric customer services supervisor for the southeast region, explains that at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, a distribution breaker failed, which caused one of the transformers in the Michichi substation, one of the main stations feeding Drumheller, to lockout, causing the outage. The outage affected Carbon, Carbon Rural, Nacmine, Munson, and area south of Drumheller, Michichi and Michichi Rural. “It affected approximately 1,500 customers. The cause is still under investigation, we are still looking into it,” he said. “We just know the distribution breaker failed, but we don’t know the exact cause yet.

RCMP/sheriffs focus on intersection safety submitted| inSide Drumheller

James Beagrie “It tells me the government has too much money on hand to waste on such a decision.”

Linda Parrotto “You hear a lot worse in music today.”

During the month of January 2011, the Provincial RCMP and Sheriff Integrated Traffic Units will be focusing their attentions on Intersection Safety. “In Alberta, in 2008, 89 people were killed and 9,134 people were injured in collisions at intersections in Alberta. About 90 percent of collisions are attributable to driver error,” said James Johnston, Staff Sergeant RCMP K Division Traffic Services. “Driving properly and safely is important to reducing collisions”. With the goal in mind of promoting public safety by lowering the rates of injuries and fatal related crashes, motorists as well as pedestrians are reminded they should be vigilant when traveling on Alberta Highways, especially in the area of intersecting roadways. Intersections can be very dangerous areas, especially during peak driving times such as “rush hours” when vehicle traffic volumes are at their highest. The following safety tips are provided to assist in getting everyone home safely. Motorists should always: • Pay close attention to your driving and others. • Watch out for other drivers and pedestrians. • Always look before proceeding through intersections regardless of the traffic light colour. • Be prepared for the unexpected and share the road safely. Do Not: • Run red lights. • Roll through a stop sign. • Speed through intersections.

• Follow too closely. • Make unsafe left-hand turns. • Rely on having the right of way. Pedestrians should always: • POINT, PAUSE, and PROCEED. • Be alert at intersections and always look out for possible dangers when crossing the street. • Make eye contact with drivers before you cross the street. In Alberta, in 2008, three of the top five most frequently identified improper driver actions were making a left turn across the path of an on-coming vehicle (12.5%), committing a stop sign violation (8.6%), and disobeying a traffic signal (7.4%). Failure to stop at a stop sign results in a $287 fine and 3 demerits. The proper procedure for executing a turn is to signal in order to provide reasonable warning to other drivers of your intention to turn, check traffic and conditions on both left and right and left again before making the turn. Check for vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffic. Maintain your lane through the turn. Failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk carries a fine of $575 plus 4 demerit points. • Pedestrians always have right of way at an unmarked intersection or stop sign unless otherwise indicated by signage. Pedestrians may indicate their intention to cross the road by holding their arm straight and pointing across the road in the direction they intend to cross. • Pay attention! Remove headphones; put away cell phones or other electronic devices when crossing the street. All rights reserved.

Gold medal Olympian to appear at Thursday’s Dragons game Kyle Smylie | inSide Drumheller

Two-time gold medal women's hockey Olympian Carla MacLeod will be meeting and greeting with hockey fans at the Drumheller Dragons Thursday, January 20 home game against the Calgary Canucks. MacLeod, the defensemen who took home gold in both Vancouver and Torino, will be brought to Drumheller through RBC’s Game Day promotions. photo submitted

Next Thursday’s Dragons game will be a golden one as Drumheller will play host to two-time hockey gold medal Olympian Carla MacLeod as she meets and greets with hockey fans at the Memorial Arena. MacLeod, 28, who took home gold in both the 2010 Vancouver and 2006 Torino winter games as a defenseman, has retired from international hockey for an RBC public relations gig, which is bringing her to town for the RBC Game Night on January 20. She’s now also assistant coach with the Mount Royal University Cougars women's hockey team. “It’s always an honour,� says MacLeod of her Olympic tenure. “Growing up as a Canadian kid, it’s one of the best jerseys you could ever put on." MacLeod helped contribute to Canada’s highest ever gold medal earning Olympic debut. Canada set the record for most gold medals ever earned by a nation in a single winter Olympics, with 14. “Anytime you can be a part of something that big and exciting, it’s pretty special.� MacLeod says she’s looking forward to coming to Drumheller, not being here in years. The Dragons will be playing the Calgary Canucks

inSideCRIME Stolen property seized at Rumsey property after gas thief hog-tied submitted | inSide Drumheller

A suspected gas thief found himself all tied up after a farm owner caught him in the act. On January 5, 2011 the Three Hills RCMP began an investigation into a male stealing fuel from a farm near Trochu on Hwy 585. The male was caught by the owner and hog-tied until police arrived. The male was found to be in

possession of a stolen vehicle out of Red Deer and a stolen license plate out of Drumheller. The investigation that followed resulted in two search warrants being executed, one in Rumsey and the second west of Three Hills. Eight stolen vehicles, three quads, and a large amount of tools were recovered. In excess of $150,000 of stolen

property was recovered and investigation is continuing. In an ironic twist, the victim of the crime also owns a tow truck business, and helped the RCMP in the seizure of the stolen vehicles. Three adult males and one female have been charged with numerous property-related oences with court dates pending in Drumheller.

RCMP seize drugs, vehicle, following attempted contraband throw-over Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

Drumheller RCMP oďŹƒcers were on a hunt in the hills last Monday for a suspect who attempted to throw drugs and contraband over the fence at the Drumheller Institution. On Monday night, January 3, police responded to a report of a person trying to throw contraband over the fence at The Drumheller Institution. What ensued was police oďŹƒcers pursuing a person on foot below the Drumheller Institution into the area of

the Drumheller and District LandďŹ ll. Police were not able to make an arrest, and believe another person may have picked up the suspect. Police and corrections ofďŹ cers did recover the contraband and drugs. They also have seized a vehicle believed to be involved in the incident. Sta Sergeant Art Hopkins says oďŹƒcers at the Drumheller Institution are making a dent in the amount of contraband that is coming into the Drumheller Institution. This is evi-

dent by the increase of institutional value of drugs in the institution. It is also evident by the amount of brew (homebrewed alcohol) being seized. Police are looking for any information to help them locate a suspect stemming from this incident. If anyone has any information, they can contact the Drumheller RCMP at 403-823-7590, or if they wish to remain anonymous, they can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

that night, with the Canucks headed up by coach Mel Davidson, who was MacLeod’s coach during the Olympics. “There will be two of us in the building that night," says MacLeod. Dragons coach Dan Price is excited to have such big hockey talent in the building, with hopes it’ll brush o on the Dragons. “We’re all very excited to meet her and talk to her, and

hopefully take some advice from her and some lessons on some of the things she’s seen and done in hockey. She sustains excellence, something that’s deďŹ nitely one of our goals as a team,â€? says Price. Along with her two Olympic gold medals, MacLeod has earned three silver medals and one gold in the IIHF World Women Junior Championships.

Curling up a book at bedtime with mom and dad is a cherished childhood memory for many; listening to the story, looking at the picture and envisioning your own images, bringing the story alive. It is also important for long-term literacy and creating a solid foundation for learning for children. With this in mind, the family fun events committee in Drumheller is hosting Family Literacy Day. The theme for this year is Play for Literacy and families are encouraged to play a game or read together daily for 15 minutes. “Children from birth to the age of six grow and learn faster than at any other time of their lives; their brain is growing and developing as fast as their bodies,” said Louise Henrickson, coordinator for Drumheller Family Literacy “Their foundation for learning is developed during their first six years of life.

The elites have been treated to a partnership with an Airdrie club with a high-end provincial coach teaching the top swimmers how to shave milliseconds off their times. The four Drumheller members of the highest level have potential to be Olympic swimmers, says Fletcher. “With that said, we know full well that the beginners and juniors are the elites of tomorrow,” says Fletcher, adding the club pours a lot of energy into every level. They take a part recreation, part competitive approach that’s seen strong results from their swimmers who consistently shave off lap times. The Aquadinnies members admit throughout the year.

Knee Hockey tournament returns during Weedless Wednesday Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

National Non-Smoking Week is just around the corner, and Alberta Health Services has a number of events planned to drive home its message about the health effects of smoking. This year National NonSmoking Week (NNSW) is January 16-22, and the theme is “There are hundreds of reasons to quit... what’s yours?” Established in 1977, NNSW is one of Canada’s longest ongoing public health campaigns. Some of its goals are to educate about the dangers of smoking, raise awareness, particularly in young people of the dangers of smoking and help people quit. One endeavour to make smokers take an honest look at quitting is Weedless Wednesday. This is a day for smokers to challenge themselves to try to make it a day without a cigarette. It reinforces the philosophy of taking it one day at a time. If someone can make it through one day, can they make it through two days three days - a lifetime?

QUOTE

“We are pleased to expand the QuitCore program to new communities to support individuals who want to quit smoking.” Susan Canning

Weedless Wednesday is on January 19, and in what has become a tradition in Drumheller is the annual knee hockey tournament at Greentree School. Other area students are invited to the event, as are the Drumheller Dragons, to have fun with a little knee hockey and gain awareness into the adverse health effects of smoking. It has been a year of transition on the tobacco front, with some victories by anti-smoking advocates. In July of this year, individual flavoured cigarillos were

banned. These were purported to be attractive to young people, as a single cigarillo was inexpensive, and came in ‘candy’ like flavours. Menthol is exempt. The federal government also announced in December of last year it would strengthen package-labelling requirements for cigarettes and little cigars. The labels that are currently on cigarettes encompass 50 per cent of the package. The new guideline is aiming at 75 per cent. Cigarette packages will have a quit line phone number and URL on each package. It is also planning to introduce 16 new health messages. The government announced that an image of Barb Tarbox will be on some of the labels. Tarbox was an Alberta woman, who died at 42 in 2003 of brain and lung cancer. In the final months of her life, she toured Canada with a powerful message about the consequences of smoking. Martin McSween, tobacco reduction and addictions counsellor for Alberta Health Services, is positive about the changes to label-

ling, but says they could go further. “It does make sense. What makes more sense is we tried for years to have no colours, and have a generic name of the company. Then it is not as attractive,” he said. Locally, the QuitCore program has been introduced in Drumheller. In September, a new program was launched. It is a free group support program that gives those who want to quit some of the tools and support they need. Led by trained cessation professionals, the QuitCore program teaches tobacco users how to develop a plan to quit that will work for them, while providing strategies to deal with recovery symptoms, manage stress and prevent relapse. Consisting of six or eight in-depth sessions over a 10 to 14 week period, the program also connects individuals with others trying to quit. “Many individuals consider changing habits in the new year to improve their health, and quitting smoking may be one of them,” says Susan Canning, AHS

Rotary supports youth’s interest in film

Chips with Salsa

Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

by C. Aiello

I don’t know if it’s “we the people”, or if it’s the people “we the people” put in charge of running this province, but I’m beginning to get a little peeved. We or they, whichever it is, seem determined to give away that which cannot be gotten back, that is, the last of our beautiful untouched places. It seems we would just as soon have them logged, mined, or turned into potato farms. In Southeastern Alberta there is the last remaining bit of natural prairie, untouched by a plough. Once turned over and cultivated, that’s it, no more, it can’t be re-created, it’s gone. It is under consideration to be sold to a potato farming interest. At least it was, until somebody said, “Wait, not so fast.” In Southwestern Alberta, in the Castle Mountain region, is a piece of land that is supposed to be designated as “protected”, yet the government is considering allowing a permit to log the area. Another area, north of Highway 3 (the Crowsnest Highway), and west of Highway 22 (the Cowboy Trail), is where the foothills meet the mountains, and is some of the best big game habitat in the province. It is also some of the most picturesque. It is now being considered for large scale mining. In the first instance I believe tragedy has been averted. In the second, the allegedly “protected” Castle region, who protects such lands from those who designated them as such? And in the last example, well, to allow mining in there would be a little piece of heaven gone to hell. Alberta is a province of 3 million and growing. Fortunately we have been blessed with an abundance of land on which to expand. Just as unfortunately, that seems to be exactly what we are doing. Have we not ploughed, mined, drilled, logged or paved over lands we have deemed protected and preserved for the enjoyment of future Albertans? Once logged, once mined, these lands are never the same. Roads are cut in to access the sites, machinery travels in and out, the noise is not the same, the waters are muddied, or diverted. Do we want our wild places to remain, or are we willing to let them go, to be dugup and logged over? The companies in question always say there will be mitigation problems, that the surrounding area will be disturbed as little as possible. They say the same thing every time, but don’t tell me, tell the creeks, the chipmunks, the birds, the deer, the elk, the sheep, goats, and the bear, who all require cover, quiet, clean water and room. Tell them because I don’t want to hear it. Once you build a road into a site, your mitigation plans aren’t worth peanuts, because every man and his dog now has four wheel access to places no four wheels were meant to go. We print beautiful mountains and forests for our tourism pamphlets, but look behind the picture. We really are nuts for allowing the degradation of our beautiful places, and hypocrites for trying to sell ourselves as beautiful, pristine Alberta. In my opinion, we need our collective heads examined. 2m

A young Drumhellerite is exploring her interest in filmmaking by attending a workshop at the Powell River Film Festival, thanks to the Drumheller Rotary Club. The Rotary Club has been increasing its involvement with youth, and this year there are about five young people participating in various programs. St. Anthony’s student “I thought it was a good program for youth from Drumheller because we have MaxCampus, and we’ve had a lot of film shoots here.”

Taylor Kluck is going to the Film Festival from February 18-20 to participate in the Adventures in Film camp, which runs as part of the festival. This is an opportunity from young people, ages 15-19,

Food for

Spaghetti and Meatballs for Dessert?

This is one spaghetti dish you might not want for a main course . . . it all sits atop a cupcake! The pasta is actually icing and the meatballs are Ferrero Rocher chocolates. (Most of us have a few lying around after Christmas, so this is a good way to use them). I think Valentine’s day would be another good time to make this treat! The original recipe calls for white  cupcakes, but pictured are chocolate. My niece made these and I thought the chocolate cupcake was meatloaf, so I think the dark color is fine to use. Depends on how much chocolate flavor you want to have.   The icing is simply piped out of a ziploc bag. Just snip the corner and pile it high on the cupcake, allowing it to droop down the edges.

Toss the Ferrero Rocher chocolates in a bowl of seedless raspberry or strawberry jam. Place one on each iced cupcake. Missing from the photo is the garnish of grated white chocolate, to resemble Parmesan. This would also look good arranged on a serving platter.   This is the recipe used for the icing: 1 jar of marshmallow fluff (which you find with the ice cream toppings) beaten with 1 1/2 cups softened butter. Add 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 cup icing sugar - beat until incorporated. Spoon into a ziploc bag and seal.   I think kids, both big and small, will love this SWEET pasta dish. 2m

The Legislative Review Jack Hayden M.L.A. Drumheller-Stettler Constituency Minister to promote Alberta agriculture at U.S. summit Lloyd Snelgrove, MLA for Vermilion-Lloydminster and President of Treasury Board, will participate in the Legislative Agricultural Chairs Summit and the State Agricultural Rural Leaders board meetings in Fort McDowell, Arizona, January 14-16. Snelgrove will promote Alberta’s agricultural and agrifood industry and participate in discussions on trade issues. The meetings bring together U.S. State Legislative Chairs, provincial Ministers and elected officials to engage in dialogue on agriculture issues. Minister Snelgrove is an alumnus of the State Agricultural Rural Leaders Board and was its first Canadian representative member. Alberta will host dinner meetings with U.S. legislators, as well as co-host the summit’s Canadian reception with the Canadian Consulate-General and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

The Alberta government has a clear plan for a strong economic recovery. As we move forward, we will continue to advance Alberta’s agriculture interests to build a more competitive agriculture and agrifood industry that contributes to Alberta’s economy and enhances rural development. For more information on the plan visit Alberta.ca. Awards celebrate excellence in early learning and child care Nominations are being accepted to recognize early learning and child care professionals who make valuable contributions through positive and creative environments for children and their parents. Due to its success, this year’s 2011 Alberta Child Care Professional Awards of Excellence program has been expanded and gives Albertans the opportunity to nominate professionals working in licensed and approved programs as well as all 46 Parent Link Centres

throughout Alberta. The Alberta Child Care Association has also introduced an additional award to recognize an inspirational leader in the child care field. A nomination package with details about eligibility and criteria is available at www.child. alberta.ca/childcare, or at any of Alberta’s licensed or approved child care programs, Parent Link Centres or Child and Family Services Authorities. To be considered, completed nominations must be received by 4 p.m. on Feb. 11, 2011. Nominees will be evaluated based on their innovation and creativity when working with children and parents and how they demonstrate professional excellence in four key areas: supporting children’s development and well-being; nurturing the individuality of each child; engaging parents, families and communities as partners in the care and education of children; and raising the profile of the early learning and child care field through their commitment to ongoing learning and development and their willingness to share their knowledge with others. The Awards Selection Committee will initially choose 40

Dynos undefeated in league play submitted | inSide Drumheller

The DVSS Dynos senior boys basketball team continued its tear through league play Wednesday night, defeating Three Hills. On Wednesday, January 12 the Dynos travelled to Three Hills for their third league game. Despite playing without two starters due to injury, the Dynos managed to play strong defense and with good patience on the offensive end. The Dynos went into the second half with a 40 to 18 point lead, while the bench players received valuable extended minutes to develop.

In the second half, the Dynos did not let up on the defensive end as they only gave up five points in the third quarter while extending their lead.

This now gives the Dynos a record of 3-0 in league play, with the team’s only loss of the year coming last weekend in tournament play.

Kodiaks quell Dragons at home Tuesday, 2-1 Kyle Smylie | inSide Drumheller

Clayton Bickford

The DVSS Dynos are undefeated in league play after trumping Three Hills 73-34. Jordan Britton scored 29 and snapped up seven rebounds, while

The Dragons dropped their second straight game Tuesday night as they hosted the Camrose Kodiaks 2-1, trailing the entire game. The aggressive match, typical of a Camrose-Drumheller encounter, saw the Dragons miss out on two crucial points as all teams are fighting to remain in play-off standing. “It definitely had a play-off feel to it,” says head coach Dan Price, adding the team didn’t respond as well as their January 2 match against the Kodiaks. All three goals were scored on the power-play, with much time spent by both teams in the sin bin. The Kodiaks opened the scoring late in the first after a holding call to Dragon Matthew Brown saw Drumheller down a man. Camrose capitalized on another power-play chance at the 3:30 mark in the third, after Dragon Marcus Toye was given a kneeing penalty 40

seconds earlier. The Dragons only goal came later in the third period on their very own power-play chance, with Kenton Levesque shooting a rebound past Kodiaks twine minder Dalyn Flette. Despite outshooting the Kodiaks 37-29, and enjoying eight power-plays, the Dragons couldn’t beat Flette in the last shift of the game. “In the second and third periods, we took it back over and had lots of chances. It was a disappointing result, but a great game for our guys.” Two goaltender interference calls, the first by Evan Warner early in the second, and the another by Cass Mappin saw Mappin receive a mandatory one game suspension. The Dragons are hitting the road this weekend, playing in Brooks Friday and Canmore Saturday. Drumheller currently sits fifth in the southern standings, with a record of 4-4-0-2 in their last ten games.

AJHL trade deadline quiet for Dragons Kyle Smylie | inSide Drumheller

Tuesday’s AJHL trade deadline was a somewhat quiet one for the Dragons, seeing Drumheller pick up a forward after the departure of the high scoring Ryan Bloom. Kooteny International Junior forward Riley Spraggs has been brought in to fill up the roster. “We’re pretty happy about that,” says head coach Dan Price of Spraggs, who saw some ice time during Tuesday’s game. “He’ll be a great addition to the team.” Price admits the organization is sad to see Bloom go, but are wishing him the best. Happy with the firmed up roster, Price says he’s satis-

fied with how it has been filled. “We all have the same goals, similar personalities. It’s a really tight group who I know has the ability to be successful." The Dragons also traded the AJHL rights of Nate Engert to the St. Albert Steel for future considerations. Engert did not see any ice time with the team. With the deadline over, the roster will not be changing, other than injuries and sickness, which the Dragons seem to finally be shaking off. “We’re starting to get through it, (Sam) Lawson and (Keith) Csizmadia will probably be back at the end of January. Pretty much everyone is healthy,” says Price.
