Editor inSide Drumheller Dear Editor,

Vicki Wilton “Probably into my 90’s, as long as I have a good quality of life.”

Sitting watching the parade on July 1, I was thinking how odd all of this seemed. Having just returned from a long stretch in a third world country, I was seeing things that maybe I used to miss. Instead of poor women sweeping the streets with improvised brooms, a man driving a machine went past our house three times cleaning the route for the parade. The street itself was as wide as a four lane highway overseas, and much better paved despite being an ordinary city street.

Then the parade started and the oddness continued. Huge, bright red fire trucks – all for a city of 8,000, far more machines than our city of 1 ½ million had. Even the Village of Dalum had a beautiful machine bigger than anything in our adopted country. Behind the fire engines were ambulances and paramedics – well kept machines and well-trained people, when so many people there have to make do with hoping a volunteer ambulance will show up in time and not demand too much money for the trip to the hospital. Instead of a group of slovenly and poorly trained policemen, twelve RCMP marched past and people were happy to see them. Getting stopped by a traffic cop over there meant assuming the cop was wrong and wanted a bribe, so an argument ensued or

most people phoned an influential friend to get off the hook. I have to remember not to argue with our police here! Those were just a few of the things that seemed strange. The parade route was advertised in advance, in newspapers that almost everyone here could read if they wanted to. The route was cleared and traffic stayed off those streets. People sat respectfully along the streets and applauded often. There was nothing political about the event, despite the presence of our MP, who incidentally was not riding in a bulletproof car surrounded by armed guards. After the parade, people picked up their chairs and headed off to home or to barbecues, leaving behind nothing smashed or damaged. How odd. How wonderful!

I get asked a lot if I am glad to be back in Canada. Yeah, I am. There is a whole lot I miss about our adopted country over there, but I am glad to be here, to a large extent because I brought back with me a new sense of gratitude and appreciation for just how blessed we are to live here. And don’t get me started on how green everything is ...     Rod Black, Drumheller   Editor’s Note: Mr. Black grew up in Drumheller and offers an amazing set of comparrisons in his letter. He and his family have returned to Drumheller after many years away and we welcome their comments.

Mike Todor “It’s hard to say, there are so many factors. More people than ever are living into there 100’s. I don’t anticipate I will.

inSideENTERTAINMENT New 80-million-year-old marine predator discovered by Tyrrell inSide Drumheller | inSideDrumheller.com

submitted | inSide Drumheller

After five years of research, Dr. Takuya Konishi of the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology and colleague Dr. Michael Caldwell from the University of Alberta concluded that the mosasaurs they were studying – a group of large marine lizards that dominated the waters 90 - 65 million years ago – conformed to none of the previously known kinds. Instead, they determined these mosasaurs belonged to an entirely new genus. “By carefully comparing the specimens of the new mosasaur Latoplatecarpus with those of a previously know genus, Platecarpus, it became clear that Latoplatecarpus represents a geologically younger and slightly more advanced animal,”

Friday, July 15, 2011 - 3

explains Dr. Konishi. “Looking down on the skull, for example, it has a pair of anteriorly diverging processes past the eye sockets, a unique feature shared among all the advanced members of the lineage that includes both the new mosasaur and Platecarpus, but the feature is absent from the latter.” Its name, Latoplatecarpus willistoni, was derived from “lato”, Latin for “broad” to indicate the anteriorly widely separated nature of the aforementioned processes, and “willistoni”, in honour of an American palaeontologist Samuel W. Williston, whose work on mosasaurs over a century ago founded the basis for the way researchers classify these marine reptiles today. Currently, there are over sixty species of mosasaurs known.

After five years of research, scientists at the Tyrrell museum have discovered a new genus of the mosasaur, a marine predator that prowled the seas between 90 to 65 million years ago. photo submitted

This new discovery will add to the growing diversity of this uniquely aquatic group

Chips with Salsa a little spicy but always welcome

by C. by C. Ai Aiello Aiell Aie llo

Wasn’t it wonderful having the royals here? They’re young, good looking, friendly, and thoughtful. Who could ask for more in a Prince and Princess? They also make for very good press, not that you have to think too much, or write too much. You could fill whole pages with just photographs and captions, which was the case a lot of the time. There are few things that bother me about these royal visits, but the one thing that does bother me is seriously ridiculous. It’s the silly inane remarks made by so called fashion stylists praising the Princess for never losing her sense of fashion, and always looking stylish no matter what the occasion. They remark on how she even repeated certain items, making the rest of us feel more human. It’s all a bit much. The woman likely has three or four attendants to help with her dressing, a walk in castle as a wardrobe, and a no limit credit card. Come on people, it’s not exactly Eliza Doolittle we’re working with here. The woman wore a white Smithbilt cowboy hat (thousands of others wear the same thing), blue jeans, a snap button blouse, and a pair of custom made kangaroo leather cowboy boots from Alberta Boot Co. Put her in the infield with a mess of other pretty cowgirls, and she becomes indistinguishable. Her fashion sense is lost in a melee of hats, blouses and jeans, no worse, no better than most of those around her. So why am I wasting ink and paper? She’s a good looking girl who married up; he’s a good looking guy, born lucky. Despite all their advantages, much is expected of them. The Calgary Stampede, you’ve got to love it. It celebrates this province’s ties to the land. In its formative years, agriculture was the foundation of this province. The people of Alberta were sustained by what was produced in the backyard and out on the back 40. The land was broken by horse and plow, the swather was pulled by horses, and wagon loads of grain hauled by horses. The heavy horse was the heavy equipment of the day. The Calgary Stampede is better for the ranch, or cow horse, and all the activities related to what a cow horse does. Bucking, calf roping, steer wrestling, are all done from the back of a good cow horse. All these can be seen at any rodeo, and some are still part of ranch work, but the big, heavy horses, which were used to bring agriculture to this province are no longer needed, and so there is little chance to see them work. That is a shame, for to watch these big animals work in teams is a beautiful demonstration of sheer brute strength. They are no less beautiful, no less intelligent than their smaller cousins. The Calgary Stampede recognizes these animals as part of its heritage. I salute them.

Vista computer at home. “They said, ‘We’ve learned your computer is full of viruses and it’s very bad’,” says Bickford. “They were so persistent, I had grandbabies here and they kept saying they’d wait on the line.” Bickford was convinced to allow the caller remote access to her computer, and after an hour and a half into the conversation she agreed to give them her credit card information. When she gave them her postal code, it did not work for the caller for whatever reason. “They got kind of upset with me, and asked if I could use somebody else’s MasterCard... But nothing would work for them, thank god.” She finally had enough of the caller and hung up, but the scammers still had remote access into her computer for about three hours afterwards. Family visited Bickford later that day and they told her she had been scammed. Taking place on Thursday, the Canada Day holiday meant the banks were closed until Monday of last week. “I went through four days of dread, I couldn’t sleep. I thought they had everything,” says Bickford. “I was pretty scared.” So far she has not heard of any charges to her account, but cancelled everything just in case. The scam calls have been reported by a number of people in the valley, with Bickford’s sister having received the call Tuesday and Magtech Computer Services warning its customers on Wednesday. “I am so lucky, thank god my MasterCard didn’t work or you would never know what could have happened.” Bickford hopes no one else has to go through what she did. “They got me. We could’ve lost everything.” Microsoft warned PC users of the scam last month, saying about 3 per cent of Microsoft users surveyed ended up following the scammers instructions. Of the large majority of people who were deceived, 79 per cent lost money as a result of the scam. Microsoft provided a few tips to help prevent someone from being scammed: be suspicious of unsolicited calls related to a security problem, never give out your personal information to such callers, don’t visit any websites or install any software or follow instructions from someone who calls out of the blue, and use strong passwords and change them regularly.

Drumheller Mail editor Ossie Sheddy snapped a photo (below) of Al Lemal and his full sized dragster back in 1982, and now the family has come full circle. Jessica and Jason Lemal currently race and have claimed top spots at competitions in their junior dragsters. inSide photo by Kyle Smylie

Drag racing comes full circle for Lemals Kyle Smylie| inSide Drumheller Drag racing is a family affair for the Lemals. Almost 30 years ago Drumheller Mail editor Ossie Sheddy snapped a photo of Al Lemal with his full size front engine dragster. And now nearly three decades later, his children Jessica and Jason are continuing the tradition with their own junior dragsters. “It’s fun, and no one else at school has one,” says Jessica, in Grade 8 at Drumheller Valley Secondary School. In July 2008 the family was on a trip to the Barnes farm when Jason, Grade 9, spotted a junior dragster among the weeds. After a year of watching Jason race, Jessica decided to pick up the habit too. The two regularly attend drag races, most recently racing in the Hanna Drag Races two weeks ago which saw Jason finishing first

and Jessica third. “The whole racing experience has been awesome,” says their mother Jacquie, who has become Jessica’s crew chief. “Besides teaching them how to drive, they have learned there is a proper place to race, the drag strip, not the street. “From just the racing itself to the people we meet at the track who all share a common interest, it’s been great.” With his experience with his junior drag, Jason will be pursuing a career as a mechanic when he’s older. The two dragsters, Jason’s newer 2008 M/T Pinnacle Lite and the first dragster Jessica has taken off his hands, run on alcohol. Jason’s best run to date was 9.27 seconds on the 1/8th mile dragstrip at 70 miles per hour, and Jessica ran 9.83 seconds at 65 miles per hour at the recent Hanna races.

Pride in Drumheller dinos roars Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller In just a few short weeks, the Dino Arts Committee went from outrage in seeing a centrally located triceratops vandalized, to a victory as volunteers have taken to reviving the statues. A sad picture was posted on the Downtown Drumheller Facebook group page on June 18. The small statue on the corner of Centre Street and 3rd Avenue near Five Blue Heron had been damaged. It had been knocked or pulled off its leg and sat in the street. This brought a reaction of anger and shame from residents and business leaders. Some called for cameras to be installed, while others

put up a reward to find the individuals responsible. Flash forward less than a month and great progress has been made. The very

next weekend, the committee held a fundraiser, screening the original Jurassic Park movie at the Napier, which raised $710 for the cause. Volunteers from the radio station Q91 set to work refurbishing the sloth situated on the north side of the Gordon Taylor Bridge, and Jen Carlson completed a soft but bold repaint on the triceratops near Fred and Barney's Restaurant. As for the damaged dinosaur at the main intersection in downtown Drumheller, the Town of Drumheller helped right it, it was patched up, and Mike Todor made sure it had a fresh coat of primer in time for the Canada Day Parade. "Things are starting to come together,” said John Shoff, head of the Dino Art committee. “It has taken us about two and half months to get organized and the paint delivered.” He adds a student from MAX Campus is planning a repaint of the dinosaur and mural at the Napier Theatre. Students from Delia School are looking at repainting the dinosaur in front of the post office. The committee asks for an initial sketch of a design from the artist, and the committee supplies the paint. There is a commitment from volunteers to refurbish about half the dinosaurs. In the spring the committee was formed to take care of the dinosaurs, iconic symbols of the valley. While the dinosaurs have endured, the resources through the Adopt a Dinosaur program were not suffi-

cient to keep them up, let alone expand the program. “We are trying to raise $30,000 to get some more dinosaurs. Between dinosaur repairs and paint it is costing about $6,000 to $7,000 a year,” said Shoff. The Adopt a Dinosaur program raised about $3,000 and then the chamber has just been running at a deficit for a long time.” The new sponsorship program they designed makes it so, rather than a business or an individual sponsoring a single dinosaur, the resources are pooled to take care of them all. The committee is not looking at just the dinosaurs; they have a mandate to look after all the art in downtown. The core is also home to some intricate murals, and the committee also want to make sure they are maintained and expanded. The mural on the corner of 3rd Avenue and Highway 9 has been refurbished. Shoff said artists in the Medium Security Unit of the Drumheller Institution have committed to work on a couple of murals. Inmates at the Minimum Security Unit in the metal fabrication shop are also looking at building a steel framed brushed metal dinosaur. They said they would do one every winter as an ongoing project for us,” said Shoff. “The goal for us to bring all the ones (dinosaurs) we have up to par so they are looking good, and with whatever funds we have left over, get one or two new ones every year so we keep adding to them,” said Shoff.

Blyschuk’s work in progress Onlookers at the Munson Centennial Parade may have spotted Metro Blyschuk’s “work-in-progress” amongst the floats. The 1964 GMC Truck has a ‘86 Suburban chassis, and has been a work in progress since he started it last year. “It sure was a crowd pleaser,” Bly-

schuk said, “some kids wanted to jump in the box but I told them they couldn’t, 'cause it’d fall off!” He says new parts are all with him, it’s just a matter of another 200 hours until it becomes whole again. inSide photo by Barb Coney

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

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

Jesus role is fourth and most challenging for Stephen Waldschmidt submitted The Weekender

The 2011 Canadian Badlands Passion Play is different from anything the society has previously produced. “This version of the Fourth Gospel is unique in several ways,” says Barrett Hileman, co-director of the play along with playwright Royal Sproule. “The first is story content. The Fourth Gospel shares a number of episodes in Jesus' life (e.g. Lazarus, Jesus washing the Disciples’ feet) that do not appear in the synoptic gospels. Those audience members who have seen the play in the past five years will enjoy these new additions. “Secondly, this year our narrator (The Old Man played by Brian Jensen) serves as a storyteller. Jesus is the primary driving force in the story, and we follow his journey through the play. This is in contrast to our last script, which focused on our narrator Matthew’s story, and Jesus’ life and ministry as it impacted Matthew specifically. “Finally, the style of the

telling has been more closely modelled on the way the Fourth Gospel is written. We are using metaphors and imagery rather than gritty naturalism. This serves the large playing space we use to tell our story and reflects more on the Fourth Gospel’s use of poetry, image, and philosophy.” For returning Jesus actor Stephen Waldschmidt, this year is his most challenging role as Jesus. “Unlike previous versions of the Badlands Passion Play, this Jesus is portrayed as a man so totally connected with his creator that everything he does and says arises from what he hears and sees his Father saying and doing. Acting that kind of life for a few hours on stage is relatively simple. Living that out in real life is a journey that will take me the rest of my life.” “This year feels different,” explains Waldschmidt. “Jesus in the gospel of John is akin to being a ‘divine alien’ invading earth. It feels more epic to me. Jesus is the Godman who has come to reveal the truth about reality - which includes revealing

New script provides urgency for Jesus to come, speak the truth, and leave a core of committed followers to carry out his beliefs. photo submitted

how much of a mess was made by the religious establishment which was supposed to represent his Father. “I believe this version of the Badlands Passion Play is one that audiences will love. The play delivers a new level of audio sophistication through

our new sound system and magical musical score created and produced by Luke Ertman. The music and singing enhances the acting and brings out the emotion that makes you want to experience the play again and again.” The 2011 Canadian Bad-

lands Passion Play will be staged July 15 to 24. Shows starting at 6:00 p.m. include the dates Friday, July 15, Saturday, July 16, Thursday, July 21, and Friday, July 22. The 3:00 p.m. matinee shows run Saturday, July 17, Saturday, July 23, and Sunday, July 24.

Thirteen years and still going strong Weekender Staff The Weekender

The Weekender is celebrating 13 years this season as the only comprehensive activity guide for the Drumheller Valley. The Weekender idea started in 1998, with the goal of offering visitors a guide that would be in-depth and include a list of up-to-date events that occur within the valley. The original plan was to mass print a full tourist guide and then insert a listing of events each week. This process led to more intensive brainstorming, and The Weekender was born. The Weekender has evolved from a

AKOKINISKWAY GOLF CLUB

small booklet to become a full colour tabloid - format paper. Tired of reading about all kinds of events that are happening in the valley, only to find out they have passed, or are happening a month after you leave? While most tourist brochures have the very basic information, The Weekender has a current events listing as well as all the information needed to entertain you and your family during your stay in the valley. There are also great contests and informative articles that give insight to Drumheller and area. Thanks for picking up Drumheller’s summer event guide, and we hope you enjoy your stay in the valley.

Robert K. Cooper says, "Every one of us has inherent qualities that anchor us to the world and enable us to shine. To live that way, we must clarify our own values and understand those of others. It's one thing to be alive. It's something else altogether to live - and work - according to who you are, deep down." Do your business decisions reflect who you are, deep down? Remaining true to our own deepest values keeps us firmly anchored to those things that are

Wayne Hove

important to us. It's difficult to live according to our values if we aren't clear about what they are. We might believe we are living according to our values, but often we are farther from them than we'd like

to admit. Think of five words or phrases that best describe who you are and what you stand for. Think of how deep your roots go and how high your aspirations extend. Think about what you want others to remember about you when you are gone, or what you want them to see when they think of you. Once you have come up with five values, write them down and whenever you are faced with a decision, ask yourself how those values might impact what you do.

January 5, 1939 - July 9, 2011

AUTO PARTS

Edward Raymond Eskeland died suddenly on Saturday, July 9, 2011. He was born in Wayne, Alberta on January 5, 1939 to parents Raymond and Clara (nee Poland) Eskeland. Ed was raised in the Verdant Valley and Churchill communities. He started his career in the oil and gas industry at an early age, drilling some of the first wells in the area, and went on to operate many of these wells for over fifty years. He shared his wealth of experience with others, giving many young people a start in the oil and gas industry. He married his beloved wife Sharon in April of 1961, and together they settled in the Churchill area and raised their family of four children. Sharon and Ed’s life work included not only a contracting business in the oil and gas industry, but the growth of a successful family farm. At 72 years old, Ed was still actively involved in the daily operation of his two companies, taking only the occasional day off to spend time fishing. He will be remembered by all who knew him as a hard worker with a strong work ethic. Ed was predeceased by his father, Raymond in 1967, his mother, Clara in 1996, and his wife of 47 years, Sharon, in 2008. He is survived by his children Joanne (Jim) Hodgson, John (Ilona) Eskeland, Jason Eskeland, and Jim (Julie) Eskeland; grandchildren Eric, Coleman, Christina, Benjamin, Jennifer, Owen, and Elena; sister Ella (Art) Hoehne, sister-in-law Maureen (Art) Russell, brotherin-law Jim (Juanita) Davies, numerous nieces, nephews and cousins, and many friends. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Tom Baker Cancer Clinic. A funeral service will be held Friday, July 15 at 2:00 pm at the Knox United Church in Drumheller, Alberta. Arrangements entrusted to Courtney-Winters Funeral Home. “May the work I’ve done speak for me.”

Local motocross racers among top in Western Canada Two young local motocross racers finished at the top of the Western Canadian Amateur National Championships at the start of July. Brothers Barett and Decklin Christensen, 9 and 11, were among the best of over 600 racers at the championships in Raymond from June 29 to July

2. Barett finished first in the 50cc class and fourth in 65cc B, with Decklin claiming fourth in the 65cc A category and 11th in 85 cc. “They worked so hard to get to that point, it was so nerve wracking.”

“They worked so hard to get to that point, it was so nerve wracking,” says mother Sherry Christensen. “It’s just a great sport that builds sportsmanship. As soon as the bikes stop everyone is high fiving each other. The motocross family is very supportive.” The two boys have been racing for two years now, and qualified for the Western Canada Amateur National Championships by outracing the best bikers in Southern Alberta. On August 20 and 21 they will be competing in the DORVA MX Round One Southern Alberta Fall Series here in Drumheller. The Western Canadian Amateur National Championships (WCAN) is an event that brings racers from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Texas and Ontario.

It isn’t summertime if you haven’t cooked a hot dog over the open fire yet! Of course cooking it is the best part – getting it “just right” - not all black on the outside and cold on the inside, for example. Perfecting the technique takes practise and patience as we learn with a roasted marshmallow as well! Here is a tasty, but different relish to add to your condiment tray when you serve up your next batch of dogs:  

Happy Hot Dog Relish 1 medium onion, chopped 1 Tbsp. olive oil 1 c. whole berry cranberry sauce 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard 1 tsp. sugar ½ tsp. garlic powder ¼ tsp. hot pepper sauce ½ c. sauerkraut, rinsed and drained   Sauté onion in oil until tender. Add everything but the sauerkraut and cook until the cranberry sauce is melted. Add sauerkraut and heat.

What goes better with a hot dog roast than potato salad? I wanted to add interest to my usual potato salad, so I served them as pictured, along with a lentil dish. I baked the potatoes, cut in ½ and scooped out the potato, leaving a thin lining in the shell to keep them intact for serving. I mixed up my favourite recipe and spooned it back into the skins. Half a cherry tomato finished off the tops of them. Roasting the potatoes gave an added flavour to them. This works great for those of us who would rather be doing anything besides peeling potatoes!
