OPINION Province allows municipalities to set playground zone rules Michael James | inSide Drumheller

The Alberta Government is proposing new legislation that would allow municipalities more control over their roads. Bill 32, the Enhancing Safety on Alberta Roads Act, will amend the Traffic Safety Act and the Highway Development Protection Act. The changes would allow municipalities to set the rules for playground zones within their boundaries. One issue facing Drumheller’s highways does not seems to be addressed by the changes. The Town has been working with St. Anthony’s School to lobby the province to create a school zone on North Dinosaur Trail, which is considered a provincial highway, near St. Anthony’s School. “When the minister (Ric McIver) was here he said he would look at it, but we haven’t heard

anything yet,” said Mayor Terry Yemen. The Town is hoping the changes will allow them to address what is transported through North Dinosaur Trail. “I wrote them a letter, because I’ve heard concerns about dangerous substances being transported on Dinosaur Trail. I asked what the province’s thoughts were on it. They came back saying it would be something we could look into at a municipal level,” said Yemen. “It’ll be something council will look at down the road.” Muncipalities currently have the authority to set the hours during which school zone speed limits are in effect. “I am pleased to bring forward legislation that furthers our commitment to the safety of families and communities. Working with Alberta drivers, municipalities and stakeholders we will continue to help keep our children and

Community Garden on the move Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

Thurs., December 5th, Edmonton AB Unreserved Industrial Equipment

The Community Garden in Drumheller is on the move and hopes to put down firm roots this coming spring. Previously, the Badlands Community Garden has operated a community garden on Newcastle Drive. DARTS generously allowed the society to set up a garden where residents could rent out a box to plant vegetables for the season. Patrice Wolf of the Society explains DARTS has designs on using the land they allowed the society to use, which means the Garden will have to be uprooted. The society has made arrangements to use a vacant parcel beside Big Country Dental Clinic near the Drumheller Post Office. “Dr. Lister and Dr. Fuh are going to lease us the yard next to their clinic,” said Wolf. “It is huge… it can handle at least as many boxes as we have now. Because it is such a public place we will have picnic tables, places for people to sit and maybe a shelter for people to get out of the sun.” The site has water and everything needed to make it a success. Wolf expects DARTS will still be heavily involved with the site, and they are looking at adding partners to the equation. “It is really positive moving forward,” said Wolf. She said they will be working throughout the winter to plan the next season, which includes advertising for the plots. They are looking at using the site not just as a place for a family to grow vegetables, but also to learn and teach. There are

Hi, we are Scamper and Rufus and we are not even 2 months old yet. Someone dropped us off at the Humane Society and we already had our sister, Boots adopted to a nice family. Rufus is pretty calm, cool and collected, but I am more active, that is why my name is Scamper. We are both very curious and like to be held and cuddled, although Rufus likes it more than I do, because I like to run and play more. We have both been around other cats and dogs since we were born and like to play with them, too. We are black with some white spots, and got our Àrst shots already. We are hoping a nice family will come and adopt us so we can live in our forever homes soon. Come and meet us and you will fall in love… (wink, wink)

Sudoku

Here’s how it works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. 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!

Horoscopes ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 It’s never too late to get healthy, Aries. Find time for some exercise and replace some calorie-laden foods with fruits and vegetables. You will appreciate having an extra hop in your step. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, a week of passion and romance awaits you and your special someone. Everything you do draws the attention of others. So make it work to your advantage. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, it can be challenging to get your head wrapped around certain tasks. Somehow you will manage to pull everything together and get everything accomplished. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, maintain your focus in the coming week no matter how difficult that proves to be. Personal concerns may have you reeling, but your heightened focus will serve you well.

Not only is this a fairly healthy pizza choice, it is a very delicious one, too! You can choose the crust according to your personal preference – be it gluten-free, whole wheat, thin or thick – there are many options. Sun-dried tomato asparagus pizza Spread a thin coating of sundried tomato pesto onto your choice of precooked pizza crust. Top with sliced, blanched asparagus. Add chopped, cooked back bacon or prosciutto. Sprinkle with chunks of goat cheese (or crumbled feta). Bake at 375 for 10 -12 minutes.

Last Week's Crossword

*If you are using an uncooked crust, then simply bake the pizza longer. When I made this, I cooked it on the barbecue. I grilled one side of the crust, then flipped it over to add the fillings. I then completed the cooking for about 8 minutes on the barbecue.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, you may have something on your mind, but now is not the time to share such concerns. Do your best to solve a problem on your own, but rely on the advice of others if need be. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, do your best to avoid being let down by the negative attitudes of others. Friends or coworkers may just be in a bad mood, but that does not mean you need to be. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, a little extra concentration will find you tackling your workload with time to spare. Commit your time now and enjoy the time to take things slow later in the week. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, significant changes are afoot and you are not quite sure how to prioritize your goals. Enjoy the change, but make use of down time to reestablish your priorities. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, though a pressing issue in your relationship may seem like it needs immediate attention, you have a lot of time to work through any issues. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, your normally conservative approach won’t work this week. You have to take a couple of chances, or you won’t accomplish much of anything. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, you have only a few days to learn some new procedures at work. It is natural to feel nervous, but put aside those feelings and concentrate on the tasks at hand. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, don’t worry too much about an upcoming change around the office. You’re in position to benefit from some restructuring.

A man who pleaded guilty to a rash of oilfield site break and enters was handed a conditional sentence order for two years. Stephen Barnes pleaded guilty to a slew of break and enters and thefts from oilfield sites in provincial court in Drumheller on Friday, November 22. The court heard that

on February 10 of this year, Barnes broke into a rural oilfield yard near Didsbury. The RCMP stopped him and discovered copper wire and bolt cutters. He pleaded guilty to break and enter, mischief and possession of break in tools. Barnes was arrested by Three Hills RCMP on June 12. He was cooperative with RCMP and admitted that between December 30 and Febru-

ary 4, he broke into eight sites to steal copper wire in the Three Hills, Trochu, Elnora and Delburne areas. At six of these sites he stole items. In all, the materials that went missing had a value of between $19,000 and $34,000. The crown prosecutor and defense agreed on a two-year conditional sentence order. This means he will be serving his sentence outside an institution.

The first eight months of his sentence, he is to remain under house arrest. For the remainder of his sentence he is to abide by a curfew. He is also to make $12,600 of restitution on a schedule of monthly payments. Any failure to make a payment will result in Barnes having a court appearance in front of Judge Grieve.

An inmate at the Drumheller Institution was sentenced to 30 days in custody after he alerted health staff at the penitentiary that he had drugs stashed in an difficult to reach place. Randy Medwid appeared in provincial court in Drumheller on

Friday, November 22. He pleaded guilty to simple possession of drugs. The court heard how on March 15 of this year, Medwid went to the heath care unit at the penitentiary advising them he felt ill and had ingested two packages; one containing tobacco and one containing cannabis resin.

He was taken to the Drumheller Health Centre, where the packages had to be surgically removed from his digestive tract. When recovered, the cannabis resin had a weight of about 15 grams. Judge Grieve, when handing down his sentenced, told Medwid many would be inter-

ested in seeing him stay in jail until he paid back the thousands of dollars that tax payers spent on his surgery. In the end, Judge Grieve agreed with the federal prosecutor’s position and sentenced Medwid to 30 days consecutive to any other sentence he is currently serving.

DVSS student leaders plan provincial conference Michael James | inSide Drumheller

Students and staff at Drumheller Valley Secondary School are getting ready to host students from across the province next spring. From May 11-13, 2014, DVSS will host the annual Alberta Student Leadership Conference. “It’s a three day conference hosting students from all over Alberta. It’s an annual event and we undergo intensive leadership training through different seminars,” said DVSS student Maria Patterson, who is helping to organize the conference. Patterson attended last year’s conference and felt it is well worth the effort to bring it to Drumheller. “It was great and they’re always inter-

esting. I learned how to be a better leader and to voice my opinion,” said Patterson. Organizers are anticipating Drumheller will be packed with students. “Last year, there were about 1,400 students, but this year we’re thinking we’ll get about 700. It really depends on the school’s location,” said DVSS student Kortney Giffin, who is also helping organize. The student delegates will be shown the sights and sounds of the Valley. “They’ll be seeing our tourist attractions, staying in our hotels, and eating our food. They’ll be taking back a piece of Drumheller when they go home, so hopefully they’ll return with their families,” said Patterson. “It’s a perfect kick-off right before our tour-

Free basketball refereeing clinic Saturday Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

As hard as players practice and coaches work to develop skills, there would be no basketball season of it weren’t for referees. There will be a beginner referees clinic coming up this Saturday, November 30 at St. Anthony’s School. This is for people interested in oďŹƒciating basketball for the ďŹ rst time. Gavin Makse, who is facilitating the clinic, says there is no cost for the program and all participants need to bring is some clean, non-marking court shoes, something comfortable to wear on the court to run in, and an interest in

learning. He said there would be a classroom session looking at rules and protocols. There will also be an on-court session to learn the mechanics of oďŹƒciating and signals. The ďŹ nal part of the session will be on the court, actually oďŹƒciating a game. Makse says he hopes to have some players there to scrimmage. The session runs from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and is open to anyone who wants to drop in and try it out. To learn more or conďŹ rm a space, contact Makse at 403823-385, ext. 104.
