Current closing time suits local bars Michele Scott | inSide Drumheller

Two local pub managers say they find current Alberta liquor laws work fine for closing time. Talk came about on social media and in the news about relaxing liquor laws after the province allowed establishments to open early for the Olympic gold medal hockey game between Canada and Sweden on Sunday, February 23. “It was excellent, everybody had a great time - we had a full house,” said Yavis Res-

taurant and Bar manager Steve Wannstrom. He said the current law has bars shut down sales at 2 a.m. and patrons must be finished drinking and out of the bar by 3 a.m. He said the current closing time is fine the way it is. “Until they ask for our opinion or bring something forward,” Wannstrom said, Vintage Pub & Grill manager Kenny Singh said he’s discussed a later closing time with his friends and colleagues in the bar and liquor businesses. “It doesn’t make

sense bars shutting and drunk people leaving at 4 or 5 a.m. and at the same time other people are going to work.” Singh’s said it might work in the bigger cities, but not in smaller towns where they’re closed around midnight on a weekday. Vintage didn’t open for the 5 a.m. gold medal hockey game. Both men agree for this special occasion relaxing the liquor laws worked, Wannstrom notes he thought it was cool and it’s still a novelty then. In a media release on February 24, the minis-

Bars and pubs have to shut down alcohol sales at 2 a.m. under current Alberta Gaming and Liquor laws. Patrons must be finished their drinks and out of the door at 3 a.m. Finance Minister Doug Horner states a review of the Gaming and Liquor Act is coming next year. inSide photo Michele Scott

Michele Scott | inSide Drumheller Issa Montoya “Open a little bit earlier so people wouldn’t stay at the bar so late.”

Peter Isnor “No change. It just leaves it open for accidents to happen and drinking and driving.”

Drumheller Fire Chief Bill Bachynski wants to remind residents to check and change the batteries in their home detectors when they move their clocks forward this weekend. Bachynski said often people forget to check the batteries in their smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, so this is a good way to be diligent. Clocks are turned forward one hour to start Daylight Savings Time this Sunday, March 9 at 2 a.m.

ing law enforcement, licensees and municipalities - to see how this unique event went. I trust they’ll use the feedback they receive to help them make informed decisions about any similar future requests.” Horner also states a review of the Gaming and Liquor Act is in the works for next year, and all the discussions that happened over social media on the gold medal game weekend will be taken into consideration. Local business owner and Drumheller

wants to run it twentyfour hours, let him run it twenty-four hours. I don’t think the government should impose anything.” Shoff said a social aspect of the issue is that if bars don’t have a closing time, it gets rid of the concern of people over-indulging at last call at 2 a.m. He notes other parts of the world operate twenty-four hour establishments and don’t seem to have the problems that we do here.


Louise Gundlach “No, I’m not in favour. We have enough problems with drinking and driving.”


Mitchell MacDonald “I’m for it. It just makes it easier for people to go out when they want and businesses to open when they want to.”

Encana aďŹƒrms commitment to Tyrrell Science Camps The partnership between Encana and The Royal Tyrrell Museum in delivering Science Camp is moving into its ninth season. Vice president, Operations Services for Encana Vineeta Maguire was at the Royal Tyrrell Museum on Wednesday, March 5, to present the museum with a $75,000 installment of its most recent threeyear commitment, totaling $250,000. “Our focus is on the community we operate in and making it real for all of us is part of Encana’s values,â€? said Maguire. Of the 10 years the science camp has been in existence, Encana has been with them for nine of those seasons, and each summer about 250 youth participate in the possibly the only residential palaeontology camp. What makes the camp special is the hands on component.

Morgan Syvertsen, who operates the camps, says this year the students will be participating in real science from ďŹ eldwork to lab work. “This year our older kids will be going to two quarries and actually work the quarry and assist collecting stu and hauling it out. They will bring it back here and wash it and do everything from ďŹ nding it in the ground, right to placing it on the scientist’s desk,â€? said Syvertsen.

“Our focus is on the community we operate in and making it real for all of us is part of Encana’s values,�

Jason Martin, director of operations and ďŹ nance for the Tyrrell Museum says the sponsorship enhances the students’ experiences. “We purchased a dozen microscopes this year so the kids get to sort through the matrix and ďŹ gure out what is a fossil and where it came from,â€? said Martin. “They do measurement and data collec-

tion, they are really into it.� Luigi Vescarelli, community Relations advisor for Encana adds there is a natural connection between Encana, the Tyrrell and science camps. “The kids get a connection between oil and gas, fossil fuels and dinosaurs, so it is a good mix,� he said.

ARTISTS SUPPORTING VOLUNTEERISM = VOLUNTEERS SUPPORTING ARTISTS! The FCSS Coordinator from the Town of Drumheller is trying to coordinate a Silent Auction to recruit new volunteers for the community. The idea is to try and find artists who would be willing to donate a piece of their art to a community silent auction. The purpose of the silent auction is to recruit new volunteers and / or extend current Volunteers’ hours of volunteering. These individuals would bid a number of volunteer hours in order to receive that actual piece of art. As a silent auction the highest bidder (most hours offered for volunteerism) would win the art. We would encourage youth to submit both their art and their time as well. The Vision for this auction is to have the art displayed for the length of the auction in the Badlands Community Facility Art Gallery, thereby providing the artist with a free showing of their work. Any artist who donates a piece of art would receive a charitable tax receipt for the value of the art donated. Thank you for your time and consideration. If you would be interested in donating art to our initiative, please contact Jennie Lutz at 403-823-1365 or email her at The Silent Auction will take place from April 7th to April 11th.

Lori Stefanishion inSide Drumheller Book Columnist

by Suzanne Hayes and Loretta Nyhan Our book club finally got back together in February after a break since Christmas. We had the opportunity to read several books, but the one discussed was “I’ll Be Seeing You� by Suzanne Hayes and Loretta Nyhan. This is a wonderful story of friendship and much more. Two ladies from different backgrounds, living in different parts of the U.S., begin a correspondence with the only common thread they have being the men they love are away fighting in the war. Their letters are what keep them going, offering comfort, advice, humor and a love which supports them in their battles against loneliness and the uncertainty of day to day life.

We have an understanding of the fears and need of companionship faced by those left at home during the war years. The book shows the reality of rationing and the ingenuity required to make recipes work during that time. We are given a taste of every aspect of life by reading the heartfelt letters exchanged. The story takes place during W.W. 2. The dedication these ladies have to their correspondence reminds me of our frequent exchanges through emails and Facebook friendships. Very close bonds have been made between people just as these two ladies’ friendship was formed back in the 1940’s. I would recommend this book as a very good read!

Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Don’t feel a need to take charge of others, Aries. People will respond to your cues even when such hints are subtle. Step back from the dictator’s podium. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, you should be able to accomplish your objectives this week, in spite of some early distractions. Things will right themselves before long. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, concern about those closest to you might be foremost on your mind this week. Shift that focus to your own life and responsibilities for the time being. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Your professional life takes precedence this week, Cancer. Allow yourself ample time to tackle all the things on your plate at the office, and you will be glad you did. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Use the power you have carefully, Leo. Sometimes it surprises even you just how great an impact you can make and the wide-sweeping consequences of some of your actions. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, uncertainty about your priorities arises over the next few days. Take time to think things through, but don’t be idle for too long. Do your best to stay motivated. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Long-term career goals are on your mind, Libra. Make time to develop a plan that can make those goals a reality. Consult with colleagues for advice or guidance. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, there is always room for compromise, even when compromise seems unlikely. Don’t be too quick to assume there is no room to work out an agreement. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Your focus is at an all-time high this week, Sagittarius. Now is a good time to establish clear objectives at the workplace or for important personal matters. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Friends and family bring you a sense of well-being, Capricorn. Surround yourself with plenty of people in the days to come. Open your heart, and you will get much in return. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, coworkers turn out to be a source of muchneeded support when you receive some unexpected news. Thank them for their support and kind gestures. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, expect others to seek your help in the coming days. Do your best to help, and those around you will greatly appreciate it.

The NGC Peewee Raptors met Medicine Hat on their ďŹ rst play o game against the team Sunday, March 3, and came away victorious with a 3-2 win. NGC now leads the series 1-0. NGC Goalie Cort Castonguay explains “If we win the next game, we move on to the ďŹ nals for the banner.â€? “I’ll be playing in that game.â€? Castonguay said his last four years of hockey he hasn’t won more than three league games through the season, so this is a big accomplishment for him. The season’s been good, and he’s had a lot of fun, he adds.


The next playo game is scheduled in Medicine Hat for Saturday, March 8. NGC Captain Tanner Pickles is in his third year of playos with NGC. “If we play hard, we can win,â€? he said.

Pickles said he tries to give positive encouragement to all the players. NGC defeated Brooks 5-1 on Saturday in their series to advance to the semi-ďŹ nals with Medicine Hat. Medicine Hat had defeated Oyen 4-1 then 8-7 to take their se-

ries. NGC also won their Sunday, February 23 game against Brooks by a score of 4 to 2. NGC plays in the Peewee Tier 3 Red division of the Central Alberta Hockey League.

The next play off win for NGC moves them into the finals for the banner. inSide Photo Michele Scott

Spring is just around the corner, and that means minor hockey is coming to a close. Looking back on the season, Freson Bros. Tykes coach Dennis Olsen has watched his players progress well over this past hockey season. “Our team has come a long way this season, and all the kids have improved greatly on their skating and puck battle skills - it’s a lot of fun to see.â€? The Tykes game against Beiseker March 1 was cancelled due to the cold weather, but they played their game with Standard on Sunday, March 2. “The Standard game was the best our kids have played all year. We came out with a great win. They played hard and went to the net a lot, which resulted in a multiple goal game for three of the kids and the ďŹ rst goal of the season for another,â€? said Olsen. The Tykes hosted Bassano for an exhibition game at the Drumheller Memorial Arena Saturday, February 23. “They had a much older team than us, and we came up short in the end,â€? said Olsen.

He said a highlight of the game was their only goal, which was scored in the ďŹ rst 25 seconds of the game by Corbin Moulton, from a face o win by Cooper Olsen. Another highlight for the coach was the strong defensive play of Seth Leavitt and Paxton Olsen. “Seth and Paxton both are becoming very solid defencemen at such a young age,â€? he explained. The Tykes play Delia for their ďŹ nal game on March 7. The Boston Pizza/Western Chev Bantams ďŹ nished their playo games with Oyen over the March 1 weekend. BP lost their third of three games to Oyen by a score of 4 to 3 in double over-time. BP had won their second game against Oyen 5-4, but lost their ďŹ rst game on February 22. Oyen won with a score of 6-2, with Tanner Boutin and Shane Telford both scoring in the third period for the BP/Western Chev Bantams. Coach Coleman Hodgson says they may try to schedule some exhibition games to keep playing until the Provincials later this month. BP/Western Chev team hosts the Bantam D Provincials March 13 to 16 at Drumheller Memorial Arena.
