Mail still a trickle for some customers Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

While a Canada Post spokesperson said the mail delivery is back on track in Drumheller, a number of customers in town are not receiving all of their mail. In the January 12, edition of The Drumheller Mail, spokesperson for Canada Post said replacement carriers were in place, and the delivery problems were corrected. This appears not to be the case as The Mail and inSide Drumheller continue to hear from dissatisfied customers who are not receiving their mail in a timely fashion.

Hoodoo Hoppers try to salvage ski season Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

Christine Milburn-Lafayette "Yes, as a mother of four I think it’s unhealthy and not safe.”

Brad Blair "If I had kids, I wouldn’t. I’d have respect for them."

While there are not too many encouraging signs the ski hill will open this season, one group who has been left in the lurch is the Hoodoo Hoppers ski team. This year the ski team was rejuvenated with hopes of a winter of skiing and learning, however without the ski hill opening, they have seen a lot of time on the highway. “We are going out of town,” said Heather Zucatto, treasurer of the Hoodoo Hoppers. “We’ve been going to Nakiska, trying to go every second weekend.” The team started the season with high expectations, and even purchased new equipment. They also purchased $2,400 worth of ski passes for the Drumheller Ski Hill. The team has been fundraising through casinos, and were able to get permission from the Al-

We will at least do that for people. If we don’t open, they will at least carry into the next year and hopefully we’ll negotiate something.

Passion Play’s success no surprise, 20 years later

LaVerne Erikson

“What I had available to me that he didn’t was the Rosebud School of the Arts. I had connections to make it happen,â€? Erikson says. “It was just the right time to come about.â€? The Royal Tyrrell Museum was the ďŹ rst big tourism venture in the area, but the Passion Play was really the ďŹ rst, apart from the Atlas Coal Mine, which allowed hundreds of local volunteers to participate in the industry, Erikson says. Looking back in time, the Passion Play came just before a big expansion of Drumheller– fast food restaurants, hotels and bed and breakfasts. "People just starting thinking ‘we can do it’â€?, says Erikson. “The Passion Play was the catalyst to inspire people to be thinkers and get out there

Church. Current play general manager Vance Neudorf and founding visionary LaVerne Erikson look back on the success of the performance. inSide photo by Kyle Smylie

performances, adding smaller performances all summer long. A new script is currently in its second reading, and will bring a surround sound system to enhance the experience. “It’s going to keep moving, along with this idea of having more than just a play, but

an actual attraction to have people come all year to see what it was like back in that time frame,� Neudorf says. This year’s performances will take place on July 15, 16, and 22 (evening shows), and July 17, 23, 24 (afternoon shows).

to create their dreams.� Looking back, the play had an impact on the culture, politics, and economy of Drumheller. Forming a land deal where the amphitheatre now sits involved three municipalities: the Municipal District of Badlands, the City of Drumheller, and Kneehill County. Having these three governing bodies sit down at a table and hammer out a deal to develop the Passion Play contributed to the formation of the town, Erikson says. Culturally, the Passion Play has made the Drumheller area known as having great theatre, along with Rosebud, and shortly after the play’s success work began on the Kaleidoscope Theatre. The real blessing, says Erikson, is that the organization has made the transition from one generation to the next. “Almost half who signed the charter have passed away, and people who were young and acting in it have now taken over and provided leadership. That’s been the real blessing, to see that the Passion Play will carry on for generations.� As for the Passion Play’s future, Erikson says it has been clouded with issues regarding the ski hill. “Once we get over the ski hill challenges, the sky’s the limit.� If this is resolved, plans on expanding the performance are in the sight of the board. Neudorf says they are considering extending the two weekend show into more


Saturday night was a celebration of the Canadian Badlands Passion Play’s 20 year anniversary, the Memories of Christmas, and two decades later, the success of Drumheller’s iconic biblical production was no surprise at all. LaVerne Erikson, who started the Rosebud School of the Arts and who was instrumental in the beginning of the Passion Play in 1990 says there was no doubt in his mind that the production would take o. “I guess that’s why I did it,â€? Erikson says of the very beginning. “I saw so much potential.â€? A lot has changed since the birth of the dramatic portrayal of Jesus’ portion of the Bible, but the new script was the most signiďŹ cant change, says current Passion Play general manager Vance Neudorf. “The change to a more play and musical view changed things around for us,â€? he says after explaining the play hit a major attendance downturn in 2005. “After that, things began to spike – it put the Passion Play back on the map and in the right direction again.â€? The big rush and enthusiasm of the early days went well, but the format became old for people who’d already seen it. Royal Sproule of Rosebud re-wrote the script, and attendance numbers began to climb. “The success of it is not surprising. Right from the beginning, they wanted to do

very good, credible art. I see the production values of the performance that the people of Drumheller don’t realize,â€? Neudorf says. “Things are really rocking and rolling forward.â€? The play’s site, nestled in the hills near the Drumheller ski hill, was part of the inspiration, says Erikson. Gordon Taylor, an inuential politician and a recent Drumheller Mail ‘Drumheller Hero’, proposed the idea 20 years before the original board due to the Israel-esque landscape.

31 in a student Final Project that is at once whip-smart comical, poignant and cruel. You Are Here introduces us to Alison, a troubled soul who, looking back on her life, struggles to untangle just how she got to where she is. Along with her friends, lovers, and business acquaintances, we journey through the darkly funny contradictions, confusions and anguish of a modern life lived in an effort to find out what exactly it all means. Director Mark Lewandowski (Ten Times Two, Christmas on the Air, The Last 5 Years), heads up a talented cast of Rosebud School of the Arts students and alumni including Conrad Belau, Emma Cobb, Travis Friesen, Aaron Krogman, John MacIvor, Alysa van Haastart, and Cassia Schramm (The Secret Garden, Oliver!, Man of La Mancha) as Alison. This show is the culmination of Ms. Schramm’s time as a student at Rosebud School of the Arts, and is being produced by her as her final project. It was MacIvor’s unflinching look at life that drew her to the script, and she found herself fascinated by the idea that one day we might be able to stop and in retrospect clearly see our lives for what they were. Cassia explains, “As Alison demonstrates, we will see both the good and bad, the things we are ashamed

of along with our proudest moments, and we will be reconciled to them all and maybe even be given a chance to start over. It is a story of grace told with an honesty that is hard hitting and leaves you with a lot to think about. A story that won’t leave you alone even after you’ve left the theatre.” Due to the strong language and mature subject matter discussed in You Are Here, the play is not deemed to be suitable for children and young adults under 16 years of age. You Are Here runs Saturday, January 29 at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., and Monday, January 31 at 8:00 p.m. at the Studio Stage in Rosebud, Alberta. Call 403-6772015.

The project is to be accessible to the public. Funding is not to be used to

cover the organization’s operating costs, administration or building maintenance. Funding is not used to support ongoing or preexisting programming expenses. Funding does not cover retroactive expenses incurred prior to the grant decision date. As of December 2010, the Drumheller Fund has distributed $164,445.00 to the Drumheller community.

Curtis Long pleads guilty in Court of Queen’s Bench Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

Former Drumheller business man Curtis Long pleaded guilty to two charges in Court of Queen’s Bench in Drumheller on Thursday afternoon, January 20. Mr. Long appeared with defence counsel Willie de Wit in front of Justice A.G. Park. He faced charges of sexual exploitation, invitation to sexual touching and three counts of sexual assault. He pleaded guilty to one count of sexual exploitation stemming from incidents in the summer of 2009. The victim was a 13-year-old employee working for Long. He also pleaded guilty to sexual assault involving a 16-year-old in September 2010. Justice Parks read the agreed on statement of facts, but they were not presented in open court. While he accepted the facts, he made it clear that he would not be the sentencing justice. A presentence report and a psychological/psychiatric report were ordered for Long. He is to return for sentencing on April 14.

Badlands Drug Coalition invites addictions author to speak Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

The Badlands Drug Coalition has invited a well-known medical doctor, who has spent years working in one of Canada's most notorious neighbourhoods for drug use, to speak to a local audience. On Thursday, February 17, Dr. Gabor Mate will be in Drumheller. He will be doing an all-day workshop for professionals enti-

tled “Taming the Hungry Ghost: Addiction and Mental Illness.” In the evening he will be holding a public presentation called “Hold on to Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More than Peers.” “We’re very excited,” said Cora Bolt of the Badlands Drug Coalition. “He is very well known in the field of addictions and we thought it would be great to speak to the community.

Dr. Gabor Mate… to speak in Drumheller

by C. Aiello

I am not a fan of those who blow their own horns, but I would like you to know that I started writing about Bill 36 before I read Karin Klassen’s column in Monday’s Herald. She writes about the same bill and does it well, but here is my spin. If you can’t, don’t or won’t follow what your provincial government is doing, I suggest you prick up your ears and open our eyes, because some of what it is doing, or more accurately, what it has done, will scare the pants off you. It did me. If you take the time to take a close look at things, you will ask yourself, “Who comes up with this stuff?” Who could write such as this (Bill 36), and then pass it into law, in an alleged property rights, land owning democracy? This is Canada for crying out loud, and red neck, blue collar Alberta to boot! Who actually formulates legislation such as this, and puts it into words? And does your MLA even read it? My MLA having voted for it, I would have to say no to the last question, but I must plead ignorance to the one before it. I have been made aware of Bill 36, and even read a good portion of it, and frankly, I was frightened. I support that any land owner or even property owner make themselves aware. Our government has blown one by us. To give you an idea: Bill 36 gives cabinet full and outright authority over what happens to private (your) land. Forget about any deals, agreements, leases or contracts that may already be in place with another party, Bill 36 makes them null and void, and does it all without consultation, compensation or recourse to the courts. Think the Charter of Rights and Freedoms can protect you? Think again. How about your MLA? Not likely, Jack Hayden voted in this legislation and thinks it’s in the best interest of Albertans. (Okay, now I’m sure he hasn’t read it.) This Tory government is slowly but stealthily moving toward centralization. Local health boards became regional health boards, which gave way to the superboard; school boards no longer have the autonomy they once did, the big decisions are made in Edmonton. All the acts designating parks, wilderness areas and protected areas are being brought under one big central act. Now land owner rights are being taken from the landowners’ hands and put into the hands of government bureaucrats. What next? (A Wildrose Alliance government, I hope). No, this is not communist Russia, but it is beginning to look like it is being governed as though it were. I don’t like it, neither should you. The Wildrose Alliance looks better with every bill the Tories bring forward. Wildrose would repeal Bill 36, as the party and its members find the trampling of property rights by government to be most repugnant. It is hard to believe that legislation such as Bill 36 could come from the party that spawned such as Peter Lougheed. 3m

in Red Deer is that he does a great job of changing your perspective on addictions.” Gabor has written on a number of subjects from attention deficit disorder to stress. His latest, In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters With Addiction came out in 2008. He is currently the staff physician at the Portland Hotel, a progressive project in the Downtown east side of Vancouver that provides permanent housing for adults dealing with mental health and addiction problems. “His book talks a lot about personal experience,” said Mike Hanly, a member of the Badlands Drug Coalition. Hanly said although Mate is drawing from experience in possibly Canada’s worst neighbourhood for drug abuse, his message still applies. “Just because we are a small town doesn’t mean we don’t have all of these problems; we just don’t have them to the same degree,” said Hanly. “All of these things are here, so the more we learn about it, the safer we are as a community.” To register for either of the sessions contact Cora Bolt at 403-823-1660 or The professional workshop will be at the Drumheller Health Centre. The evening parent workshop is at Drumheller Valley Secondary School at 7 p.m. and is free of charge. Registration deadline is Friday, February 11.

ernment announced changes to mortgage rules. One of these changes is that the maximum amortization period for a government insured mortgage has been dropped from 35 to 30 years. This means a buyer who cannot come up with a 20 per cent down payment, and needs to have the mortgage insured, can only spread their payments out over 30 years. “First time home buyers are the ones who will be most effected by the new rules,” said Stacey Gallagher of Century 21. “Adding another five years (from 30 to 35) to the amortization period could have made the difference between the dream of owning a home becoming reality. “Everyone deserves a chance to own a home and young couples/families just starting out cant seem to catch a break. Everything is getting more expensive yet wages can’t keep up. The government is making it more difficult to make the leap from renting to buying.” She said 2010 was a buyer’s year in Drumheller real estate, but it appears prices have start-

ed to stabilize. Low interest rates also help those wanting to make a leap into the market. “As always, the homes that sell the quickest are the ones that are perceived as ‘good bang for your buck.’ Sellers need to be realistic and price their home to sell. Buyers are being prudent with their dollar, but want a quality home too,” Gallagher said. Because the changes are to take effect March 18, Gallagher said it might prompt those in the market to speed up their decision. Don Rosgen of ReMax has just returned to the real estate business after a two-year hiatus. He is not disappointed in the changes to mortgage regulations. “I’ve never promoted a 35 year mortgage, I don’t necessarily think it is good for clients. The reason they dropped five years off there is because people were buying more than they can afford,” he said. “That isn’t one of the priorities I had in selling real estate. In fact, I think 30 years is really stretching it for some people.” He said the market is pretty

strong in Drumheller. “The lower end stuff is not moving so good, and neither is the top end, but the middle is going pretty well, the realtors are pretty busy,” he said. While prices appear to be back on an upswing, they have not reached the same levels they were a couple years ago. This may hurt a seller who bought when the market was inflated, but at the same time, their next home may be more affordable. “Any correction is healthy, I think, because if it keeps going up it forms too big of a bubble, and then it hurts too many people,” he said. Gallagher said there could be better solutions for the government to help people tackle household debt. “If the government wants to encourage less debt, go after credit card interest rates, and make it less easy to have a dozen credit cards,” she said. “The credit card companies give out cards like candy to people who have no income with the promise of low introductory rates.”

She has seen great progress from her squad in the few short months they have been competing. “There has been some huge growth, definitely in the confidence area. Defensively we have grown tremendously and we now have a very strong zone defense,” she said. “We have been kind of tackling issues as they come, but we have been working a lot one on one to boost individual skills. We measure growth by seeing the girls put what they learn in practice into play in their games, and we have been seeing that a lot.” Not only is there improvement on the defensive end of the court, but Grant also said she has seen better passing, better speed and on-court communication. One area to focus on moving forward is shooting under pressure. “All in all I am extremely happy with the growth I have seen and I am super excited for what the next couple of months might look like,” said Grant.

and played strong, but lost 33-52. Darby Andrus had 15 points and Brittany Stahl contributed eight. The second game of round robin play saw the Sabres take on Olds Koinonia on Saturday morning. This time Stahl led the way with 15 points and Andrus scored eight. Bailey Faubion also contributed 10 points including two three pointers. When the two pools merged the Sabres played their final game of the weekend versus Three Hills. In the close game, the Sabres lost by only six points, 5965. Andrus had 22 and Stahl had 19 points. The Sabres finished sixth out of the seven teams that competed. Stahl and Andrus both received MVPs. “The scores were all pretty close as the teams were all really evenly matched, which made for a great tournament,” said coach Chloe Grant. “The feedback I received was very positive in the respect that it is fun to play in such an equally matched tournament.”

Eight members of the Drumheller Aquadinnies took to the University of Calgary pool this past weekend to participate in their Grand Prix Meet. The swimmers ranged in age from 9 – 17, and had a very successful meet. The Grand Prix gave the kids a chance to swim their events and set 15 new club records in total and one national time for Austin Knibb. Austin (15) swam 30.50 in 50 back qualifying him to attend Canadian Age Group Nationals in Montreal, Quebec in the summer of 2011. This achievement marks an exciting time for the club, as Jennifer Woods was the last swimmer to qualify for Nationals in the late 1990s. Brandon Chernow (17) set five new club records, Devon Chernow (14) swam three new club records, Robyn Hays (14) swam two new club records, and one best time, Brock Hoel (9) swam to second place in three events and improved times, and older sister Janae Hoel (11) swam improved times in six events.
