The Centennial Celebration Committee has added another event to celebrate Drumheller’s 100th birthday. The Town will open 2013 with a New Year's Eve centennial celebration. The event, although only just conceived, is planned to take place in the Badlands Community Facility. Other major events being planned are celebrations on Drumheller’s birthday (May 15) and a bigger and better Canada Day bash. Other ideas include concerts, talent shows, host the 2013 FireFit, getting sports involved, monthly centennial breakfasts in conjunction with local organizations, inviting hot air balloons, centennial banners, corporate challenges, and a gallery exhibit in the Badlands Community Facility. One of keys to the centennial will be getting the community involved. For example, local organizations, businesses, and schools could theme their events around the centennial. One way residents can be involved off the bat is design-

Public transit surveys may put brakes on service Angela Kroeger “He should have gotten more. Anyone who does what he did should not get off that easy.”

The surveys residents received in their utility bills regarding the possibility of public transit are back at Town Hall. The results, though requiring further analysis, may halt the implementation of a municipally run transit system. Of the 227 returned surveys, 113 residents indicated they were in favour of public transit, 104 were not, and 10 did not respond. In question 2, when asked if they would use a service were it available, 78 responded yes, 140 no, and 9 maybe. The vast majority, 155, responded that any public transit should be funded entirely through user fees, rather than using any taxes. The majority of respondents, 129, said they were aged 55 and over, meaning they were eligible to use the

Valley Bus. When asked if the current service was good at the level of funding provided by Council, 119 responded yes and 10 no. The results cast the future of public transit into doubt. “The results are not what we expected. It’s still on the table at this point, but if there’s no support from the community, why would we proceed?” said Mayor Terry Yemen. Mayor Yemen highlighted a misunderstanding that residents are under the impression public transit would replace the Valley Bus. That, he said, is not true. “The program was to compliment the Valley Bus, not replace it,” said Mayor Yemen. “The Valley Bus is an important program.” “The Valley Bus mandate is solid, and it will still be in service no matter what kind of public transit,” said Councillor Tom Zariski, who sits on

the Valley Bus board. Should public transit not happen at this time, the legacy of the survey and transit study conducted last year may be to help refine the service the Valley Bus offers. “Any information like that we will analyze from a Valley Bus perspective. We’re always trying to be more efficient and analyze what we’re doing. What we’ll get out of the study, I’m not sure, but we’ll definitely take a look,” said Councillor Zariski. At the March 19 meeting of the Committee of the Whole, it was asked by Councillor Jay Garbutt for administration to analyze the results further and correlate the questions with age to get an idea of how those who cannot use the Valley Bus voted. That analysis is still going. Public transit will be brought before council again. For Mayor Yemen, the cost

is too high. “We’re just not big enough. The capital cost is through the roof. It wouldn’t be sustainable,” said Mayor Yemen. For example, the cost of one bus is roughly $180,000. The Town would need two at least. “There is grant money to help buy a bus, but you then have to pay for staffing or maintenance out of the Town,” said Yemen. When asked if a summer bus program could happen, for example a bus that stops at hotels and campgrounds and travels to the local sites, Mayor Yemen indicated that it would have to be self funded. Residents who may have missed the survey can contact Allan Kendrick, Director of Infrastructure, at 403-8231308 and leave their comments.

Community Facility Gallery’s first exhibit features Through the Lens: Coal Town Years Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

After a year-long celebration of the centennial of coal mining in the valley, the committee is holding its ďŹ nal event to honour the miners and the volunteers who made the celebration a success. 2011 marked 100 years since the ďŹ rst commercial coal mine in the valley was established, and the community celebrated the milestone. This Friday they are honouring the volunteers who helped make the celebration a success at a private function. At the same time, the new gallery at the Badlands Community Facility is opening and its ďŹ rst exhibit will be part of the celebration. “It is exciting because Town Council felt it was really ap-

propriate to open the new gallery in the new facility with the story of Drumheller and this is what this is,â€? said Linda Digby, executive director of the Atlas Coal Mine. The exhibit is called Through the Lens: Coal Town Years and it is a collection of images of the valley. These come from the Atlas Coal Mine’s extensive collections, as well as many of the images collected from residents to help celebrate the mining centennial. “Collecting images that depict life in Drumheller during the coal mining years is an ongoing process at the Atlas Coal Mine, which is an AfďŹ rmed Museum with the Alberta Museums Association. These images are priceless for

research and interpretation of local history. It is impossible to show them all in one exhibit. Selecting images from our archives to show in this exhibit was fun, and involved some tough decisions,â€? said Digby. Some of the images also come from the Royal Tyrrell Museum’s archives depicting the early years of dinosaur hunting in the valley, continuing the narrative of Drumheller, as the coal industry collapsed and tourism became a major industry. Digby credits the Royal Tyrrell and its sta for helping display the collection. The photos will be displayed in groupings with like-themed images and displayed on canvas. The Communities Anniversary Grant the committee received from Heritage Canada helped to pay for the materials to complete the exhibit. “It is gorgeous, I think people will be delighted with how their history looks,â€? said Digby. The images will tell the complete story of life in the mining years; from the miners working to the social life, the homes and the commer-

cial sector. “I think people will love to see the town from the view of an earlier era,� said Digby. The gallery will make its premier at a volunteer appreciation night on Friday, March 23, and will open to the public on March 24. Digby encour-

ages the community to come see the works. The exhibit will only be installed until March 31, as there are more bookings for the space. Digby said there may be a chance the images will be displayed later in the year.

Chain Mail refers to Double Stuffed Oreos a lot. When God Comes to Breakfast, Don’t Burn the Toast has burnt toast.

Walk a Mile to end silence and stop violence Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

Don’t worry guys, shoes will be provided… but if you have your own pair of bright red stilettos that you are used to, the walk might be a little more comfortable. The Big Country Anti-Violence Association (BCAVA) is hosting its second Walk a Mile in Her Shoes. The event is an opportunity for the community to come together to support ending sexual and gender violence. BCAVA President Cindy Stelmaschuk says the main goal of the event is to get people talking. “Our motto is ‘end the silence, stop the violence,’ and this brings it to the forefront. It gets people talking and realizing domestic abuse is a big issue,” said Stelmaschuk. “The more people who are talking about it, the less hidden it is.” And the silence can be painful or even deadly. While about one in three women experience sexual assault in their lifetime, only eight percent of sexual assaults are reported to police. In the majority of cases of victims who

have not reported a sexual assault, they say they did not feel it was important enough. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is a chance to show solidarity. “Just having the men walking in a unified way with women, shows the support that they will not strike women and don't want to have violence in their lives,” she said. The event is slated for Wednesday, May 16 at 11 a.m. The group will muster at the Drum FM parking lot and will venture east on Highway 10, with the brave men trekking in high heels, and conclude with a barbecue at the Drumheller Coop. In 2010 the BCAVA hosted its inaugural event and 50 men participated. BCAVA look on track to repeating this success. “We have 24 committed walkers and we haven’t even begun really shaking the trees yet,” said Stelmaschuk. On top of showing solidarity and raising awareness, the event also supports programs and resources to help those who have violence in their life. The 2010

event raised about $19,500 and assisted the BCAVA in developing a website linking victims and the community at large to resources and service. They also began the development of an emergency fund to assist families in accessing emergency shelter. The funds also supported training and prevention efforts. Pledge sheets are available from Marian Ewing at the Drumheller Health Centre, Cora Bolt at Addictions Services Drumheller or BCAVA president Stelmaschuk. Participants are asked to obtain a minimum of $100 in pledges. More information on this initiative is available at www., or by contacting BCAVA President, Cindy Stelmaschuk at (403) 823-3095.

Alison Redford’s Plan:

No New Taxes. No Service Cuts. Alberta’s economic success has been built on a foundation of low taxes. We continue to have the lowest tax burden in Canada – with the lowest fuel tax, no payroll tax, no capital tax and no sales tax. That’s why I have introduced a three-year budget with no tax increases and no service cuts. It provides Albertans with the certainty they need to build a business, learn a trade or care for an aging parent. Improving services with no tax increases and no new taxes. 12032SP0 That’s the Progressive Conservative Plan.

Registration opens April 1 for Dinosaur Half Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

While it seems like a long ways away, it is time start thinking and training for the Community Futures Dinosaur Valley Half Marathon. Registration opens on April 1 for the event which includes a family 5K walk/ run, a 10K road race and the full half marathon. The event has grown leaps and bounds, and going into its third year, organizers are anticipating even more growth. “Last year we had about 630 participants,” said one of the race organizers Colin Kloot. “We are hoping to get 800, so it is time to start training.” He said Community Futures Big Country has signed on once again as the race’s major sponsor. Race day is Sunday, September 9, and it will follow the same routes as last year. The 5K and 10K will start at the lower parking bowl of the Royal Tyrrell Museum, while the half marathon will start at the Little Church. It will head north through the rolling terrain, before looping back along North Dinosaur Trail to the Museum. Kloot said organizers looked at incorporating the Badlands Community Facility into being part of the event route but said the terrain is one of the major attractions of the race. “The majestic that lies within the route is what makes it so popular,” said Kloot. The race’s support for the major Drumheller project is unwavering however, and Kloot said funds realized from the event will go toward the Badlands Community Facility. In the two years the event has been staged it has contributed about $19,000 to the project. Registration for the Dino Half opens on April 1. For more information on the event go to www. There ,potential racers will find information on the route, testimonials, past coverage and training tips, as well as links to register.

The internet is arguably one of the biggest technological advancements in the past two decades. It has revolutionized virtually every aspect of modern civilization, including crime. The Drumheller RCMP detachment is continuing their efforts to educate students on the dangers careless internet usage. On Tuesday, March 20, the RCMP spoke to students of the Drumheller Valley Secondary School (DVSS) and told them what’s out there for the unwary. Constables Tom Dobrich and Rachel Pergunas, and Corporal Mike Black spoke to a packed Kaleidoscope Theatre. One of the biggest issues is privacy and disclosing personal information. Dobrich talked about how what ever is sent on the internet is no longer private and is out of students control. That information can have huge implications. Schools and employers use social media and the internet to research potential students or employees. “When I was trying to join the RCMP, they asked me ‘if I search your name, what will I find?'" said Dobrich. Constable Pergunas then discussed the recent St. Patricks Day riots in London, Ontario, Vancouver riots, and how social media was instrumental in laying charges. Through people submitted photos and videos or even the rioters themselves posting their own foolishness on YouTube, the internet and social media are bringing people to justice. Pergunas’s test is asking whether she would want her mom to see what she is about to post. Statistics show that 71 per cent of teens have received messages from someone they don’t know. 45 per cent say the stranger asked for personal information. 30 per cent of teens considered meeting someone they met online. 14 per cent have met people they befriended

Students at DVSS spent part of their afternoon on Tuesday, March 20, listening to "Think Before You Send", a presentation by the Drumheller RCMP. The presentation aims to show youth the risks that are online and how they can be safe while using the internet. inSide photo by Michael James

online in person. Dobrich warned of the dangers of meeting people you only know online. Dobrich then showed how easy it is to get personal information about someone online, simply by using search engines and someone’s user name. Even comments made online in a chat room, on Twitter, or elsewhere can be used to piece together an accurate picture of who someone is. A personal anecdote of mine comes from the days when I used to play online games with my brother. We played with a regular group of players we didn’t know face to face. Over the span of a year, we unintentionally let slip personal details, such as first names and occupations. A shock came when one of the players we grouped with on a regular basis (that I did not know personally) remembered those details and tracked down what city I lived in, the university I went to, what I studied, and who I was. Nothing happened, but others have not been so fortunate. There are those who can and will use the internet for far more sinister purposes, such as identity theft or worse. With social media, those details are even easier to come by.

“We’ve had some huge problems with Facebook and they don’t seem to be going away,” said Dobrich. For example, Facebook will occasionally change users privacy settings when it undergoes a massive update. The privacy change could allow people you don’t know to find out personal details. Another problem Dobrich highlighted was competing for the most “friends” on Facebook. Dobrich warned students to be careful and the best policy is to only friend people you know personally. Dobrich then discussed the legal consequences of making inappropriate comments online. In the eyes of the law, saying something on the internet is exactly the same as saying it in person. “Sexting”, sending racy photos through the internet, is another huge issue. It is possible child pornography charges could result from “sexting”. Dating abuse is growing in prominence as well. Dating abuse is when one person in the relationship uses the internet, texting, or phone calls to harass their partner. One of three teens have reported receiving in excess of 30 texts an hour and 17 per cent said they were afraid of their partner’s reaction if they did not respond. This is the second year Dobrich has done this presentation. The original “Think Before You Send” presentation was developed by an attorney general in Massachusetts. Dobrich modified it for a Canadian audience. For more information regarding the presentation, contact Constable Dobrich at 403-823-7590.

2012 Enerflex MS Walk seeks more participants Michael James | inSide Drumheller

You shred, or we shred

The 2012 Enerflex MS

Walk registration is getting off to a slow start this year. The MS Walk board is looking for new and younger residents to join the worthy cause. The walk is scheduled for Sunday, May 6, 2012 at Drumheller Arena. Checkin is 9:30 a.m. and the walk commences at 10:00 a.m. “Registration numbers are increasing, but slowly,” said Dianne Snyder, MS Walk coordinator. “I’m hoping once we get closer to the day, there will be more.” Snyder went on to say that

many other walks in the province are experiencing the same problems. The first is that many long time walkers, some who have participated for more than a decade, wish to get involved in the volunteering side of the walk. Another issue, more specific to Drumheller, is that residents in outlying communities don’t wish to participate for a Drumheller event. “The outlying areas don’t realize that they are in the Drumheller MS Walk region,” said Snyder. Snyder went on to explain that residents may be interested, but

don’t want to participate in Drumheller and wait for their own community. The nearest walks are in Brooks, Calgary, and Stettler. A suggestion that has been brought forward has been running the walk every two years. “It might be something that could help, but things are in the hands of Edmonton,” said Snyder. The walk is also looking for younger residents to get involved, either by walking or organizing. “Everyone has a different idea. If we could get more, we can really get this thing

going. If anyone has ideas we’d love to hear from them,” said Snyder. The purpose of the MS Walk is to raise funds for research and support for those with MS. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurological disease that causes the sheaths that surround nerves to degenerate leaving scarring. The disease can lead to virtually any neurological symptom, such as physical or cognitive disability. There is no known cure. For more information or to get involved, call Snyder at 403-821-3193.

Midget Raptors reach semifinals in first provincial tournament experience After winning the zone cham-

pionship earlier in the month, the Bertram Drilling/Sports Room Midget Raptors were aiming to add another title to their stellar season, that of provincial champions. The Raptors travelled to Manning this past weekend and fought hard against some of the best division C teams in the province, but fell short of their goal. “They definitely tried, but things didn’t fall in our favour,” said head coach Darren Toffan. “The boys were down. It was a lot of hockey and the ref wasn’t the greatest.” The weekend opened with the Raptors facing off against the Kitscoty Pitbulls in round robin play. The Raptors got off to a huge five goal lead early on, but in the third period the Pitbulls fought back and scored four goals. The Raptors won 8-7, but it was too close for comfort. The next morning the Raptors were up against the Rimbey

Renegades and were defeated in a heated match. The Raptors then faced the host team, the Manning Comets. With the home team crowd prevalent in the arena, the pressure was high for the Raptors, but they came through with a win over the Comets. After round robin play was over, the Raptors finished first in their pool and headed to the semifinals, their opponent being the Viking Gas Kings. After the first period, the Raptors held on to a narrow 2-1 lead. Unfortunately, it didn’t last as the Gas Kings went on the warpath and defeated the Raptors. In the end, the Renegades won the provincial championship. Despite losing in the semifinals, the weekend had benefits. “It was a good experience for the boys. It was their first time at provincials and they got to see what other teams are like,” said Toffan. The season isn’t over for the Raptors. This weekend, the Raptors will be battling the Oyen

Town offers graduation present to area students Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

The Town of Drumheller has a

generous graduation gift for local students this year as they prepare to enter the next stage of their life. With the gift they hope it is a way to send grads out into the world on healthy footing. Mayor Terry Yemen told inSide Drumheller the Town is going to give a one-month membership for the Badlands Community Facility to each of the graduating Grade 12 students this year. “This will give the students an opportunity to work out and look their best for their grad,” said

Mayor Yemen. “It will also give them an opportunity to have a healthy stress release through the trying weeks of final exams and graduation. Thirdly, it may hopefully promote a healthy lifestyle and encourage use of the facility.” He said administration has just gotten behind the idea and they will be contacting area principals to provide a list of graduates and the dates of their graduation. The passes will be distributed a month before graduation. For more information on the offer, contact the Badlands community facility at 403-823-1370. or 403-823-1338.

She is sold, at the age of 12, by her gypsy/fortune-teller mother to live as a servant to an abusive, wealthy woman. Moth eventually escapes and lives a life just as devastating on the streets of New York. She is soon befriended and invited to live a life of luxury, which happens to be in a brothel. This was a time where it was believed that a diseased man could be cured by deflowering a virgin. Sadly, these young girls would more often end up diseased themselves. It is here that a person wonders where Moth is safer – out on the streets or under the roof of “Miss Everett’s house,” as a prostitute-in-training. The author apparently began the book with the intention of writing about a female doctor, being inspired by her own great-grandmother. The Dr. ended up as a secondary character in the book, but plays quite an important role in the life of the young girl, Moth. Ami McKay has a way with words that adds to the charm of her writing style. She is also the author of The Birth House. This is a story of survival, but not only for the main character. The others who are involved in Moth’s life have as many challenges and life-threatening situations which will keep you turning the pages of this book in anticipation. 12m

New players pick up sticks for lacrosse season Michael James | inSide Drumheller

Registration for the fastest game on two feet has surpassed expectations this season. The Badlands Lacrosse Association is gearing up for the upcoming season with the most fresh faces they have seen. Lacrosse registration ďŹ lled most of the teams, save the Midgets. There were enough participants to ďŹ ll a mini Tyke, Tyke, Novice, Pee Wee, and there has been a lot of interest in a Junior Team. The Novice and Junior teams are bursting, with 21 and 20 players apiece. Last year, all of the teams were ďŹ lled, the dierence being this year there are a tonne more kids new to the sport joining up. “I think the registrations went well, thanks to the school visits we had from Jesse Fair,â€? speculated Ren Dumaine, president of the Badlands Lacrosse Association. “Sometimes the registration forms sent to the schools are not enough.â€? The Alberta Lacrosse Association (ALA) hired Fair to travel across the province and give demonstrations to schools in a bid to generate more interest in the sport. To compliment the ALA’s initiative, the Badlands Lacrosse Association made an appearance at the Sports, Recreation,

and Arts Expo in the Badlands Community Facility on March 7. “The expo was excellent for us, there was a line up at our booth the whole time. Showing everyone the equipment and parents what the kids need,â€? said Dumaine. Compared to hockey, Dumaine argues that lacrosse can be more accessible for parents. “Not everyone can skate, hockey is quite expensive, and the hockey season is longer,â€? said Dumaine. “It’s cost eective for parents to have their kids try lacrosse.â€? For the near future, the association will be gearing up for the upcoming season, but already have a few plans to bring more lacrosse action to Drumheller. “Hopefully we can host a few tournaments in Drumheller, in the arena and Community Facility,â€? said Dumaine. “We can get people interested if they see it played at that level.â€? Dumaine also speculated that, after the season is underway, there may be room to start a recreation league. For more information regarding lacrosse, visit www.
