inSide Seniors foundation faces rise in expenses, drop in funding STREETERS Kyle Smylie | inSide Drumheller

As the Japanese government warns citizens of a potential nuclear disaster following the quake, inSide Drumheller asks, “Looking at Japan, do you think nuclear power should be pursued in Alberta?”

Amber Blackman “Alberta is a different atmosphere: what happens in Japan doesn’t affect us in the same way.”

Clarence Swinimer “It’s safe up to a point, but when there’s a catastrophe, it affects so many people.”

The Drumheller and District Seniors Foundation is beginning to feel the growing pains of the retiring baby boomers alongside rising expenses and static revenues, as their vicechair says they’ll be requesting more money this year than in previous ones. “It’s gotten to the point where we have to fix it, but I think we’re on the right track,” said board vice-chair Tom Zariski. Zariski says the expenses have been rising continuously over the last few years, but revenues from rent must remain at affordable levels for senior tenants at retirement homes, such as the Sunshine and Hillview Lodges in Drumheller. Known expenditures which will be incurred in 2011 are replacing the hot water tank at the Sunshine Lodge, independant consulting fees to obtain noise readings regarding Drumheller’s sound bylaw, union dues for the CUPE due in December, and major repairs and replacement costs for the aging Sunshine Lodge. Unknown expenditures have no reserve set aside for these expenses. The foundation saw a deficiency of funds of $357,566 in 2009. “That creates a predica-

As expenses rise and provincial funding falls, the Drumheller and District Seniors Foundation advised town council the amount of funding to

be requested this year will probably increase to $425,000-475,000, rising from 2010’s $250,000 amount. inSide photo by Kyle Smylie

ment,” he says. “Costs go up, and funding just hasn’t been there. “We’re looking at the provincial government for assistance and they’ve been cutting back. If they aren’t putting in the money, then I guess the town has to step up.” As a short-term solution, Zariski says the foundation has been advised they must requisition $425,000-475,000 from participating munici-

palities this year, up from $250,000 in 2010. The DDSF will be finalizing how much they will requisition at next Thursday’s board meeting, and will present town council with the amount at the following week’s council meeting. The Town of Drumheller provided 50.4 per cent of the requisitioned funds last year ($125,093), Starland County 47.6 per cent ($118,865), and Delia, Morrin, and Mun-

son providing the remaining funds. The money is found through the mill rate. “These are the people who built the community, built Alberta, built the country, and they need our support.” About $25,000-50,000 of 2011’s requisition funds will go towards a comprehensive efficiency audit to see if any areas of operation at the homes can be made more efficient and cost effective.

Woman charged after close call with semi near Morrin Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

Mark Fairfield “No, for me, nuclear power is associated with the bomb. We should pursue something less volatile.”

A woman received minor injuries after a collision with a semi on Highway 27 near Morrin Wednesday morning, March 16. At about 9:40 a.m. Drumheller RCMP responded to a collision about one mile east of the Morrin turnoff. It appears a mid-sized car travelling eastbound crossed the center line and sideswiped a tractor-trailer unit. The car spun and came to a stop in the middle of the road. The RCMP along with the Drumheller Fire Department, the Morrin Fire Department and EMS responded to the accident. Heavy fog decreased visibility as traffic was directed around the scene. The female driver of the car received minor injuries and was treated at the scene. The call to police was initiated by the OnStar system in the car. The driver has been charged with driving left of center.

Town of Drumheller crews have been hopping this week dealing with what lurks beneath the ground. Winter weather inevitably leads to water main breaks and this year was no exception. Recently, crews have been working two in Bankview and one in downtown Drumheller. Just as they were getting a handle on these breaks, a spring Chinook overwhelmed some of the infrastructure that is still frozen. “Storm drains are the biggest issue we are dealing with right now," said Keith Russell, operations manager for the Town of Drumheller. “With the warmer

weather, the streets with hard packed ice are now falling apart.” Crews spend much of this week working to free up frozen storm drains and catch basins. Despite their efforts, some in the valley have experienced pooling on the front streets, lawns or seepage into basements or garages. He said they have also had to deal with some shallower sewer pipes that have frozen. Simon Wunsch of Rosedale has been dealing with flash melting. He lives along Pinter Road and the water came quickly, turning yards into swimming pools. With the cooling, they became skating rinks. “It gets better in the morning because it is freezing overnight

but at 3 or 4 p.m. it starts again,” he said. While his yard is covered with ice, he said so far there is no water in his house. He said some of his neighbours on Pinter Drive have had their basements flooded. The cooler weather on Wednesday and Thursday has helped to slow the water. Russell said the slow down has allowed them to catch up. He said residents can continue to communicate with the town on water issues. “The public can continue to report the frozen catch basins and if there is imminent danger of property being damage to report, and we will try to prioritize,” said Russell.

“We’re ecstatic. We are very happy and overwhelmed with the support we received from the community,” said Jordan Webber of Community Futures Big Country. “The truth is we have asked lots of businesses, big or small, to date. We have had a warm reception from every one.” He adds they are still waiting to hear back from many of the businesses. “They are really excited they could help the college come to Drumheller,” said Webber. He explains they have been working on raising $300,000 of private pledges, spaced over three years, with a deadline of April 10 to accompany their ap-

plication to the Rural Alberta Development Fund. The RADF is a matching grant program. It requires Hope College to demonstrate strong local support by securing at least 25 per cent of the funds from local sources. As of Wednesday, they have submitted their application, with the named supporters and the total pledge amount. He said they will review the application and Hope College will update the total with RADF before the deadline. They have applied for a grant of $1.1 million. Webber expects they will here back from the government by April 30.

The second event of the semi-annual Healthy Lifestyle Fair is coming up on March 30. The Big Country Primary Care Network held its first fair in October of last year. Their second event, coming up at the end of the month, will focus on physical activity, goal setting and self-management. Erica Laycock, wellness coordinator, said the registration is beginning to fill up. She says it is aimed at anyone interested in making a healthy change to their lifestyle. “Any who are interested can come. It is for all ages and fitness levels. You can come all day, or just for sessions that

are of interest to you,” said Laycock. She adds that not living a healthy lifestyle not only affects an individual personally, but also professionally. Many health conditions that are preventable can cost productivity at work, and often lead to missing work. With that in mind, she would like to see local businesses have a look to see what is offered at the Healthy Lifestyle Fair. “We know when people are active and eat better, there are reduced costs in sick leave and everything else,” said Laycock. The day includes lectures as well as break out sessions. “The focus is physical activity and we’ll be having break

out session around that, just to give people an opportunity to try a few different things they may have not tried or not know where to go to try them,” said Laycock. Some of these sessions include modified yoga, Pilates, urban poling and proper use of fitness equipment. At lunch time there will be a Community Resource Fair, a place to learn what information, or programs are available locally. She said at the first Community Resource Fair, there was strong participation from professionals and it provided good networking opportunities. “This time we have 18 different booths talking about anything from foot care to nutrition to family violence,” said Laycock. The Healthy Lifestyle Fairs are not a Drumheller exclusive event. Laycock said not only will they be held semiannually, but also in many of the areas, the Big Country Primary Care Network cover. “The Big Country Primary Network covers Hanna, Three Hills, Trochu, Stettler, Coronation, Consort, and each of these areas will be offering the same format,” she said. Registration forms can be picked up at Drumheller Associated Physicians Clinic. For more information contact Laycock at 403-823-3345 or e-mail Erica@bigcountrypcn. com.

FireFit Competition selects WLD site for June meet Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

The 2011 southern Alberta regional Scott FireFit competition will be held in the shadow of the World’s Largest Dinosaur. The FireFit competition is slated for the weekend of June 11 and 12, and organizers have selected a site. The toughest two minutes in competition will be played out in the parking lot at the World’s Largest Dinosaur. “It is going to be kind of cool to have the tower right beside the big dinosaur there,” said Duane Bolin, who is working on organizing the event. The organizers have been busy planning the event and have a full weekend planned. Along with the FireFit Competition, which includes both individual, team and relay events, they are bringing a TopCop contest for peace officers to showcase their skills, as well as Corporate FireFit Challenge for local teams to try course. Bolin said typically events like the one Drumheller is hosting can attract anywhere from 50 to 100 indi-

vidual competitors alone. Because Drumheller is situated between Calgary and Edmonton, he is optimistic there will be a strong uptake. He is also encouraging local departments to come out and give it a try. There are a number of firefighters from Drumheller who have competed in the contest. The event has garnered strong support from the community and the organizers have secured their gold sponsors (contributors of $3,500 or more). The Mail announced that Encana had signed on as a gold sponsor. The Drumheller Fire Department is also acting as a gold sponsor, as are Horizon Oilfield Services and Performance Steam. Silver Sponsors (contributors of up to $3,499) that have signed on include HiWay 9 Express and Caltech Surveys. Bolin explains registration for the FireFit Competition and the TopCop Challenge is through www. Registration for the Corporate Challenge is through the local organizers. The corporate challenge

allows teams of three to five to take on the FireFit course on Friday night. The entry fee is $150 and includes a t-shirt. This is a fundraiser for the Badlands Community Facility. They are hoping for about 30 teams for the corporate event, and already there

are a few teams registered including a possible team made up of firefighter’s' wives. For more information on the FireFit Challenge or to get involved as a sponsor or volunteer, contact Bolin at 403-823-2259. More information on the TopCop

Contest can be obtained from Rod Audy by e-mailing To register for the FireFit Corporate Challenge, or for more information, contact Kim Masson at 403-8205757 or by email at

be reviewed and considered due to the small size of the interested municipalities and the lack of efficiency of having bylaw enforcement services on an individual municipality basis. The purpose of the study is to identify and assess potential options and determine whether the benefits of regional service delivery of bylaw enforcement services outweigh the costs. The study will provide various approaches to service delivery on a regional basis,

considering various parameters and scope. The results of the study will be reviewed by the interested/involved municipalities to determine if regional bylaw enforcement should be pursued. If it is decided that there is enough interest to proceed, an implementation program and operations plan will be developed. Regional Bylaw Enforcement Services will be implemented if a costeffective and viable option is developed through the

project. As many of the supporting municipalities are small and remote, regional services are often seen as the most viable option to ensure the necessary expertise and abilities are retained to provide critical municipal services.

Palliser Regional Municipal Services is currently awaiting a decision on the Regional Collaboration Program grant funding made available through Municipal Affairs to proceed with the project.

Travis Hardy, Merv Smith, Jordan Harper, Duane Bolin, and Matt Bolin competed in a FireFit Competition last spring in Medicine Hat. Also from Drum-

heller (inset) a corporate team made up of Gail MacDonald, Laura Hegberg, Anne Wade and Kim Mason entered the competition. photo submitted

MRU Cougar Price returns to Alberta with national volleyball gold Andrea Price came home from New Brunswick a national women’s volleyball champion, after the Mount Royal Cougars beat out Vancouver Island University to win gold in five sets last weekend. “It feels amazing, this is the first time Mount Royal’s program has ever won gold", the tournament's Most Valuable Player Price said. “It was a good match. “We always tried to be the hardest working team and it really paid off,” said Price. “We’re really driven, hard working, and determined. We spend a ton of time together so we’re kind of like a family as well.” In an ultra-tight first set, the Cougars found themselves on the wrong end of the stick as the VIU Mariners claimed the first set 25-23. Known for their tenacity, including an 18-16 fifth-set win in Saturday’s semi, the Cougars rebounded in the second, finding a groove of their own, as ACAC Women’s Volleyball Player of the Year Price took control of the set for the Cougars – claiming the second frame 25-20.

Andrea Price... helped Cougars win CCAA gold

and tie them for the rest of their lives.” After having time on the court taking pictures after the game, the girls had their moment together, sharing tears and words. “Andrea had probably her best weekend of the year – no better time than that.

She was our rock and our go-to and completely deserved winning MVP,” said Lamb. “Andrea’s got two years left of eligibility, and we’ll sit down with a meeting to put out a game plan for her and see what she wants to do. There are a lot of options

out there, and we want her to stay on the right track both on and off the court,” said Lamb.

ing, the point was awarded to Mount Royal, turning the tide of the fourth set as the Cougars now trailed by one 24-23. Clearly shaken, the Cougars took advantage of their despondent opponents, rattling off the next three points, and the set's final six points, to grab the fourth set 26-24. “We went through a moment where we lost and won it all in 45 minutes,” said head coach Sandra Lamb. With the momentum heavily on their side, the Cougars continued to keep their foot on the pedal, as Andrea Price reigned down kills, while the Cougars' defense dug balls at a remarkable rate. Taking an 8-4 lead into the break of the fifth set, the Cougars would allow only three more points as they would cruise to a 1511 fifth-set win and the national championship. Mount Royal had never won a CCAA Championship since the school was incepted. “Obviously being the first, we’re really proud and it took a full team effort to come out with that victory,” said Lamb. “There’s nothing that brings a team together more than what we went through. It’s something they’ll remember forever

Whatever was working for the Cougars in the second certainly didn’t carry over to the third set, as MRU found themselves nearly helpless, surrendering points at an alarming rate, while making uncharacteristic errors in dropping the third 25-16. Looking down and out after playing a sub-par third set, the Cougars looked to storm back in the fourth set. Down 24-20 in set number four, the Cougars clawed tooth and nail to 24-22 when after highlight reel rally, the Mariners had

thought they clinched the championship. After one official ruled the ball out, almost certainly sealing the Cougars' fate, the head referee noticed the other official had in fact ruled that the ball had been tipped. After a brief officials meet-

Aquadinnies attend Speedo championships in Calgary submitted | inSide Drumheller

The 2011 Speedo Age Group Championships are the provincial championships for swimmers aged 14 and under, and took place March 11 to 13, at the Talisman Centre in Calgary. Drumheller Aquadinnies sent seven swimmers to compete for individual awards, team awards, and to represent Drumheller.

Brock Hoel, 9, earned three silver medals in 200 Back, 200 Free and 50 Back, swam eight individual events, improved times in 100 Back, 100 Free, 50 Free, 200 Back, 400 Free, 200 Free, and 50 Back. Brock also set ďŹ ve new club records. Brock’s swims earned 148 team points. Janae Hoel, 11, qualiďŹ ed at Age Group Trials to complete at Age Group Cham-

team points. Relays are always fast and fun to watch. Devon Chernow, 14, swam six individual events, setting two new club records in 50 Back and 100 IM and improving his national time in 50 Back to 30.06, swam improved times in 50 Free, a club record in the 100 IM with 1:08.00, and earned 37 team points. Parker Knibb, 13, swam eight individual events, setting two new club records in 50 Fly (29.20) and 100 Fly (1:06.59) improved times in 100 Back, 100 Free, 200 IM, 50 Back, and earned 31 team points. The third and ďŹ nal day of the 2011 Speedo Alberta Age Group Championships included the presentation of the Youth Recognition Awards to the swimmers from each age group who have earned this designation. The Youth Recognition Awards program provides a t-shirt and march-out before the start of ďŹ nals as a way to recognize the achievements of the rising stars in Alberta. The 2011 season saw the highest number of award winners to date, with over 100 swimmers earning the recognition standard. This

pionships, Janae swam in six events and improved her time in 100IM. Janae swam very well against the best in the province in the 11–12 year old female category. Alan Lister, 14, swam to a national qualifying time in 50 Back, 30.46, making him the fourth Drumheller boy in the 15 and under category. There was a lot of pressure on Alan from his teammates Austin Knibb, Devon Chernow and Parker Knibb as achieving this time enables the boys to swim in the team relay events at Nationals in Montreal this summer. Alan swam six individual events, improved times in 100 Back, 100 Free, 200 IM, 50 Free, 100 Fly, and 50 Back. Alan also set a new club record in 100 Free. Alan’s swims earned 26 team points. Josiah Fletcher, 13, joined Devon Chernow, Parker Knibb, and Alan Lister to compete in the 13-14 year old male relays. The boys swam to 7th place in the 400m Free Relay with a time of 4:15.17, earning 12 team points, and 8th place in the 200m Free Relay, with 1:53.55, earning 11

year’s presentation included Parker Knibb with a Top 10 Canadian Swimmer and Austin Knibb with a Top 25 Canadian Swimmer t-shirt award. To ďŹ nish the weekend, all the team points were calculated, and 1st Place Small Team Award was presented to the Drumheller Aquadinnies. The Swim Alberta Team banner will be displayed at the pool as recognition. Top ďŹ ve small teams were: Drumheller total team points 269; Sylvan Lake Nauticals, 113.5; Cochrane Comets, 96; Leduc Otters, 75; and the Lloydminster Rip Tides with 50 points. “We as a team are proud of the accomplishments that these athletes have achieved, as you work hard and set your goals high,â€? said parent Diane Knibb. “What a way to round up a very successful short course season.â€? Drumheller plans to attend the Chinook Invitational meet in April, and training will continue for our Senior and Elite swimmers as we begin the long course 50m pool season.
