During the Canadian Badlands AGM and Tourism Development Conference, inSide Drumheller took the time to ask some of the colourful delegates, what is the best thing about the Badlands?”
Vance Neudorf (Passion Play)
“The Passion of the people for the communities.” Danielle Smith, leader of the Wildrose party, stopped by the Badlands Community Facility on Tuesday, March 27, and gave residents a look at the Wildrose election platform. Smith promised that the Wildrose
would respect property rights, won’t raise taxes, and balance the budget, but not make cuts to essential services such as health care and education. inSide photo by Michael James

Wildrose leader brings party message to Drumheller in redesigned campaign bus Michael James | inSide Drumheller
On the ﬁrst full day of the election campaign, Tuesday, March 27, Wildrose Party leader, Danielle Smith stopped by the Badlands Community Facility , to deliver the Wildrose message that Alberta needs a change. Smith arrived in Drumheller late Tuesday afternoon in the second edition of her campaign bus. Over 50 residents attended the event to listen to Smith’s election platform. One of the main themes of Smith’s nearly 15 minute speech was that the Progressive Conservative party has been in power too long and,

“The river and the excitement of people wanting to visit where you live.”
as a consequence, are out of touch. “The PC’s have succumbed to a culture of entitlement, in which the only thing that matters is what’s in it for them. That’s why the choice that Albertans face on April 23 is so important,” said Smith. Smith explained that the Wildrose represents a fresh conservative government alternative. “It’s time for a real conservative government that respects property rights, that won’t raise taxes, that will cut spending and balance the budget, and that represents Albertans and not bureaucrats. It’s time Alberta, it’s time for a new Wildrose gov-
ernment,” said Smith. Smith promised that the Wildrose, if in power, would put money in the front lines of health care and education, so doctors and nurses can treat Albertans and teachers can teach. Smith presented the ﬁrst pledge of the Wildrose campaign, the Balanced Budget and Savings Act. In the promised act, yearover-year spending would be limited to increases in population plus inﬂation, mandate a return to balanced budgets without cuts to teachers, nurses, or other front line services, and grow the Heritage Fund to $200 billion in 20 years.
inSide Drumheller will be publishing early and will be in your mailbox and on stands Thursday, April 5. Deadline for advertising will be Tuesday, April 3.
Smith’s stop in Drumheller happened on the ﬁrst full day of the election campaign, the writ had dropped the previous day. “On the second day of the writ drop I’m pleased and proud. It shows we want to engage with Albertans,” said Rick Strankman, Wildrose candidate for DrumhellerStettler. “I was quite blessed that we were able to have her this early in the campaign.” Smith may come to Drumheller again, depending on how the election develops. The Wildrose has been gaining momentum throughout the province explained Strankman. “We’re going to make great strides here in the province. People are coming out, grabbing signage and showing support,” said Strankman. “The PC’s time is up,” said Smith. “It’s time for a change. It’s time for a Wildrose government. It’s time for a government that puts people ﬁrst.”

New twist on spring and Easter decorating Eggs are symbolic of Easter. They're colored, decorated, hidden, and used in decorative items for the home. The one caveat to eggs is that they are quite fragile, and even hardboiled eggs can be rendered useless with one accidental drop or blow. Instead of relying on breakable eggs for Easter fun, consider making stronger ones instead. Symbolic of rebirth and renewal, eggs are an integral part of setting the scene come early spring. Selecting a less fragile material to create the looks of real eggs can increase the potential for using them in many different applications. One of the easiest ways to create harder-tobreak eggs is to make them out of clay. Modeling clay is a versatile medium that can be used to make everything from clay eggs to bunny figurines to religious items synonymous with Easter. A visit to the local craft store or even a chain retailer will likely turn up different clay products, which come in a variety of colors. You can create pastel-colored clay by mixing primary colors with white clay if you cannot find pastel colors in the store. There are two main ways to create egg shapes out of a ball of clay. One way is to roll a ball out of the clay and then roll it vertically between your hands to make the smaller end of the egg. Another is to use a plastic egg as a mold and stuff the clay inside. Pop open the top of the plastic egg and then gently tap the clay out. You don't even have to color your clay if you don't feel up to it. You may also use white clay, allow to dry, and then paint them using acrylic
paints. Mix two clay colors together before forming into an egg to achieve a marbled effect. Also think about adding embellishments like stickers, ribbon, bows, and flowers to the eggs, much in the same way you would decorate real eggs. To display clay eggs in a vase or to attach to a spring wreath, thread a dowel or piece of florist's wire into the egg before allowing to harden completely. Then attach them as needed. Clay eggs can be used in place of regular eggs in just about every traditional egg use -- except of course for making egg salad! Plus, making clay eggs is a fun and safe craft for all ages.

Ministerial Association fosters celebrations during Holy Week Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller
In the week leading up to one of the most important dates in Christian tradition, the Ministerial Association in Drumheller has put together a number of events in the approach of Easter. The week leading up to Easter is called Holy Week and holds a number of traditions for most Christian religions. For the third year the Ministerial Association has cooperated on a number of events, and at the same time respected each church's custom. “This is more of a conglomeration of all the events,” said Blaine McDonald of the Ministerial Association. “Some of them are very speciﬁc to the denomination, some are open to them all.” On Tuesday night the Church of the Nazarene is hosting Christ in the Passover at 7 p.m. On Holy Thursday, The Salvation Army is
hosting a Seder dinner. This is a celebration of the Passover, which many Christians believe Jesus was participating in at the Last Supper. St. Anthony’s will be holding a mass at 7 p.m. On Good Friday at 10:30 a.m., there is an evangelical service at Elim Pentecostal Tabernacle and at noon they are hosting a free barbecue lunch. Elim Pentecostal will also be the muster point for a Walk of the Cross at 1 p.m. This is a prayer vigil walk through downtown, stopping along the way to meditate on the Passion, Cruciﬁxion and death of Jesus. At 3 p.m. St. Anthony’s will hold its Good Friday service. On Easter Sunday
at 8 a.m., there will be a sunrise service at the Canadian Badlands Passion Play Site. McDonald said the Passion Play has hosted this service in the past, however in recent years the Ministerial Association has played a role in the service. It is followed by pancake breakfasts at Grace Lutheran Church and The Salvation Army Church. McDonald said over the last few years the Ministerial Association
has been working closer together with the assertion of celebrating their commonalities rather than dividing over diﬀerences. “The Ministerial is a neat place because we are really starting to trust one another and work together really well,” said McDonald. “I have been involved with this one nearly 10 years and it seems to get closer and closer together.”

This dessert reminded me of good old-fashioned Creamsicles! With the warmer weather slowly creeping up on us, I thought a reminder of summer time treats would be just what we need. I made this to serve at Easter. I was going to cut the recipe in half, but having an extra one in the freezer seemed like a better idea. This way, if it gets devoured and people are asking for more, I still have another one. Because it will keep for 2 months, the second one might come in handy with a barbecue dinner on the May long weekend.
• 4 cups graham cracker crumbs • 3/4 cup sugar • 1 cup butter, melted • 3-1/2 quarts vanilla ice cream, softened • 2 cans (12 ounces each) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
15 x 10 x 1-inch pans. • Cover and freeze for at least 10 minutes. • In a large bowl, combine ice cream and orange juice concentrate until smooth. Spoon over crusts (pans will be full). • Freeze for 10 minutes or until partially firm. • Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture; gently press down. • Cover and freeze for up to 2 months. Remove from the freezer 15 minutes before serving. • Yield: 2 desserts (24 servings each).
Directions • In a bowl, combine cracker crumbs and sugar; stir in butter. Set aside 2 cups for topping. • Press remaining crumb mixture into 2 greased
May Easter bring you many blessings shared with family and friends.
I made them in 9x13 foil pans, rather than 10 x 15. I like the idea of a thicker piece and thicker crust. I also used a little more butter as the graham crust didn’t seem to have enough holding it together.

Healthy Lawn = Healthy Living
TIP PLAN AHEAD Make a list of what youâ€™d really like to see in your garden and stick to it. Thereâ€™s no use growing winter cabbage, regardless of how lovely it looks in the frost, if no one in your family eats cabbage. A list will also keep you under control when you see the end-ofseason sales and are tempted to purchase something on a whim. In addition, if you plan exactly where plants are going to go, you wonâ€™t make last minute mistakes such as placing sun loving plants in the shade.
Itâ€™s estimated that healthy lawns remove 5 percent of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere as well as providing money-saving cooling eďŹ€ects in the summer months. A well-maintained, 50-foot by 50-foot lawn produces enough oxygen for a family of four. Eight healthy front lawns have the cooling effect of 70 tons of air conditioningâ€” enough to cool 16 average homes. Dense, healthy grass slows down and ďŹ lters runoďŹ€, removing contaminants and trapping soil. Clean, ďŹ ltered water then returns to the underground water supply. Turf also provides pollution control by trapping dust and smoke particles from the atmosphere. The healthier the turf, the thicker the roots, and itâ€™s this thick carpet of healthy turf that eďŹ€ectively ďŹ lters and puriďŹ es both air and water. Lawns and green spaces also provide places for recreation. A recent study found
a lower incidence in childhood obesity in regions where there were lawns, parks, and school ďŹ elds for recreation. Caring for lawns is important. Homeowners can be proactive in April by reviewing their lawn and doing the following: Clear the lawn of leaves, downed branches, and other debris that have fallen during the winter. Aerate the lawn if it seems compacted, if moss is growing, or the grass has worn down. Machines can be rented or a professional can provide the service. Check the lawnâ€™s pH balance. Grass grows best in soil with a wellbalanced pH level. Many local extension oďŹƒces provide this service. Remove weeds and get a head start on the season before weeds can mature. Seed the lawn. Spring is a good time to get grass seed down, especially in areas where there is high traďŹƒc. A lawn care professional can advise on what types of seed or sod are best for your lawn and your area. Homeowners can consult with a lawn care professional to put together a program that ensures their lawns will be healthy and beautiful throughout the year.

BLACK KNOT Black knot is a fungal disease that spreads by spores, so basically, with the wind. It is very obvious at this time of year just prior to the leaves coming out on the trees. Pardon the comparison but it looks like something pooped on your tree. I really feel badly for the folks who have healthy trees and the neighbour across the fence or yard has a tree thatâ€™s not so healthy. Your healthy tree wonâ€™t be healthy for long with Black knot next door. There are lots of articles about this on the internet and I have included some photos of it. Hereâ€™s a very informative site: http://www. arborcare.com/resources/diseases/black-knotdisease/ If you decide to get your tree pruned or youâ€™re going to do it yourself, please make sure you cut the branch off well below the infected area and sterilize your shears after each cut. The branches or whole tree should be handled carefully and should be buried, not burned, as the spores will be sent flying through the air with the fire. This disease affects the Schubert Chokecherry especially bad and any fruit bearing trees are usually susceptible to this disease. I have even noticed some in the Saskatoon trees by the Red Deer River. Please take a walk or drive around your
neighborhood and pass this on to the folks who may not know how bad Black knot really is. Thanks for being concerned enough to have a look at your trees. Jackie Friedley
