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?”

“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 you’d really like to see in your garden and stick to it. There’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 won’t make last minute mistakes such as placing sun loving plants in the shade.

It’s estimated that healthy lawns remove 5 percent of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere as well as providing money-saving cooling e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 conditioning— enough to cool 16 average homes. Dense, healthy grass slows down and ďŹ lters runo, 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 it’s this thick carpet of healthy turf that e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 lawn’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 that’s not so healthy. Your healthy tree won’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. Here’s a very informative site: http://www. If you decide to get your tree pruned or you’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

Pastor promises pink Mohawk for 5,000 chocolate eggs Michael James | inSide Drumheller

How many chocolate eggs would it take to consider shaving your head into a Mohawk? This is the very question that

was asked of Pastor Dan at the Elim Pentecostal Church. The answer is a whopping 5,000. Mohawk Night, as it’s being called, will be held on Wednesday, April 4 at 7 p.m.

Pastors Nola (left) and Dan dig into the giant box of chocolate eggs donated by residents of Drumheller (don’t worry, they didn’t eat any). On Wednesday, April 4, Pastor Dan will shave his hair into a Mo-

and to kick off the night Pastor Dan will have his head shaved into a Mohawk and then dyed pink. “We wanted to something to do for Easter, so Pastor Dan

hawk and dye it pink as part of a challenge to get residents to donate 5,000 chocolate eggs for a massive egg hunt in Elim Pentecostal Church.

came up with the idea to shave his hair into a Mohawk. I suggested a pink Mohawk,” said Pastor Nola. “It evolved into an egg-stravaganza, where people donated chocolate Easter Eggs. It’s gone crazy from there. We have over 5,000, but they keep pouring in,” “Part of it is that we have family nights every Wednesday evening, so we thought it would be cool to have an Easter Egg hunt,” said Pastor Dan. “I had this idea that we could shave someone’s head. I said I would do it for 10,000 eggs, but Pastor Nola said 5,000. We went back and forth until I accidently blurted out 5,000 and she said ‘sold’.” The chocolate eggs will be used for a massive Easter egg hunt throughout Elim Pentecostal Church (Central School) right after Pastor Dan’s hair is transformed.

“We’re going to distribute the eggs around the building, and it’s a huge building,” said Pastor Nola. “At 7 p.m. we’re going to do Pastor Dan’s hair and then the kids get to go all over the building and find eggs. Happy Easter!” The building has several floors and roughly 20 classrooms that are perfect for hiding a large number of eggs. Pastor Nola explained there will be obvious eggs and quite a few more incognito ones to accommodate all ages. The church has collected well over 5,000, but more are welcome to give the kids a fantastic Easter Egg hunt. The hair shaving event and egg hunt is on Wednesday, April 4, starting at 7 p.m. in the Elim Pentecostal Church gym.

Community service placements needed

Community service is a big part of sentencing, however, those who work in the courts are finding a shortage of placements for those navigating the legal system. Service to the community has become an integral part of the legal system. Often included as a part of sentencing is for the offender to work within the community. There is also a need for placements for programs such as alternative measures, where a person facing minor legal issues can complete a program and not have a criminal record, or extrajudicial sanctions, a similar program for youth. Defense lawyer Colin Kloot has seen where clients are given the opportunity to make a difference in their community and also possibly clear up legal issues, however the are having problems finding a place to work. These placements can be with any charitable organi-

zation that is able to provide a supervisor. This could be churches, museums or other organizations. The work is completed with no payment to the individual. Probation officer Kristi Donison sees community service opportunities as an important part of the process. “They want to give back,” said Donison. “The more involved in the community, the less likely they are to reoffend, in my experience.” For information on the program, contact Donison at 403823-1664 or email

DVSS students wear purple for epilepsy Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

Students at DVSS on

Monday showed their support for those with epilepsy. The students caught the purple wave, as Monday, March 16 was Purple Day for Epilepsy.

While many awareness days are founded by groups and organizations, Purple Day was founded by a 9-year-old student in Nova Scotia in 2008. Cassidy Megan, with the help of the Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia founded the day with the goal to let

people with epilepsy know they are not alone. The colour lavender is the international colour of epilepsy. The lavender flower is often associated with solitude, and mirrors the feelings of isolation of many people affected by epilepsy and seizure disor-

ders. From the initial event in 2008, the movement has spread, and this year people from all continents, including Antarctica participated. There were events in Calgary as well as Red Deer, Lacombe and Blackfalds.

Teacher Lynn Hemming suggested to students they get involved, and the Friends of Rachel Club (FOR) agreed to wear purple on the day. Ray Laval made t-shirts for the event. The FOR Club was joined by literally dozens of other students who also wore purple. Hemming told inSide Drumheller 50 million people worldwide are affected by epilepsy, and 90 per cent of these cases are in developed countries. She said three people on staff, including herself, are directly affected by epilepsy through their family. They talked about the struggles of people with epilepsy in class. Courtney Hatt, Grade 12 member of FOR said it helped spread awareness and understanding of epilepsy.

Monday, March 26 was Purple Day for Epilepsy and students from DVSS marked the day by wearing purple to raise awareness and show support for those with epilepsy. inSide photo by Patrick Kolafa

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, accept help when it is offered. Doing so will reduce stress and put you in a better frame of mind. Someone close to you has a proposition. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, though you often enjoy being the center of attention, there are many times -- like this week -- when you simply thrive being able to recuperate out of the limelight.




GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, it may be time for a change of scenery, especially if you feel like you need recharging. Browse available travel deals and you can probably find something affordable.

Dynos awarded at annual year end banquet Michael James | inSide Drumheller

The Dynos basketball teams have wrapped another year and to celebrate, students, parents, and coaches came together on Wednesday, March 28, at Dinosaur Valley Secondary School for a banquet and to hand out awards to players. The Dynos had a great year. The Senior Boys dominated the court throughout the season, placing at the top of their league and finished with a silver in provincials. The Senior Girls, who had players from both

DVSS and St. Anthony’s School, got off to a rough start this season. However, by the end, the girls were a cohesive team and won first place in a tournament in Strathmore, near the end of the season. The junior teams had great seasons as well. The Junior A Boys had a silver finish in their league play and the Junior A Girls ate up their competition all season, winning the vast majority of their games. A few of the junior players will be making the leap to the senior teams next year.

The awards handed out were for best defensive player, heart and hustle, and MVP. The Senior Boys, who will be graduating this year, were given their jerseys and an ornamental basketball with their names, number, and years they’ve played engraved on its stand. Head coach Jeff Messom was given a special present by his players. The Senior Boys bought Messom a framed picture of the team and signed it. Dynos basketball will return next year with fresh faces, but the same drive to win.

Junior B Boys

The Senior Girls were kept out of provincials due to a freak blizzard several weeks ago, but brought home gold from a tournament in Strathmore a few weeks ago.

Alumni sweep second annual St. Anthony’s games Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

The new St. Anthony’s gym hosted the ďŹ rst competitive basketball games last weekend as former St. Anthony’s cagers took on this season’s squad. This was the second annual alumni games and was well attended as the school builds the new tradition. There was camaraderie in the court as well as in the stands. Athletics director at the school, Gavin Makse, said it was great to see the turnout. “It went over very well, it was good to see kids come back About a dozen former St. Anthony’s boys basketball urday and were successful in beating the current and nice to show o the new, beautiful gym,â€? said Makse. players came out for the alumni games last Sat- Sabres. inSide photo by Patrick Kolafa “The big thing was how any alumni had their parents come, it was good to see.â€? While St. Anthony’s did not put a senior girls squad on the court this season, junior high school players came up to participate. About seven alumni came out for the game and it was a close one. The alumni won 46-39. About a dozen former men returned to play this year’s St. Anthony’s squad, and age and size won out as the alumni cruised to a 61-27 victory. In all it was in fun and for a good cause. During the event they held a silent auction to sell the aging basketball uniforms, and so far they have raised $400 to purchase new uniforms. Former players and parents were snapping them up. “We only have 10 left; six of the boys and 10 of the girls,â€? said Makse. He said the uniforms are still available and for a bid of $25 a fan can pick up a jersey. A bid of $50 gets the shorts as well. They are continuing to build the tradition. Next year’s alumni game is already slated for the weekend after the provincial ďŹ nals. They are looking at adding more events to the contest.
