Happy Thanksgiving D rumheller!

Students of Cindy Gerodo’s Grade 2 class at Greentree School celebrated Thanksgiving by doing a series of Thanksgiving activities on Wednesday, one of which was the “Fill the Horn of Plenty Food Toss,” where students competed to see who could toss a vegetable into a horn of plenty.

The local Drumheller restaurant will be featured on an episode of You Gotta Eat Here, a Food Network Show that profiles Canadian restaurants.

One of Drumheller’s local restaurants is being thrust into the national spotlight soon and they’re ready for their close up. Bernie and the Boys will be featured on You Gotta Eat Here, a Food Network show that proďŹ les small eateries across Canada. Bernie Germain, owner and chef of Bernie and the Boys is excited to be on the show. “They asked me if I wanted to be on the show and I was like, ‘who

says no to that?’â€? said Germain. The local restaurant came to the attention of producers via Urban Spoon, a website where bloggers can rate and review restaurants. Bernie and the Boys currently has a 92 per cent rating on the site. Germain was initially contacted last February in regards to appearing on the show. “They found us on Urban Spoon and there had been a few people who told them about us. They sent us a questionnaire we had to ďŹ ll out, which took like three hours.

Then we had to send in a video and interview. They really liked what we were doing here and gave us the go-ahead,â€? said Germain. The shoot begins on November 8 with a day focused on Germain in the kitchen with You Gotta Eat Here host John Catucci. “On the 8th, they want us to be in the kitchen, so I’ll be showing John how we cook the food. I’ll demo some of our most outrageous things, like the Mammoth Burger and the Megasaurus Pizza. They want me to bone out a turkey, because they heard that’s how we do our clubhouses. It’s something that’s not done usually,â€? said Germain. There will also be a few surprises in store for Catucci when he shows up for the shoot. “He’s not a chef, he’s a comedian. I’m going to have a lot of fun with him for sure. I’ve got some fake hick teeth, so I’m deďŹ nitely going to pop those bad boys when I greet him,â€? said Germain. “He’s deďŹ nitely going to have to do the Blair Wing Project. If that’s not hot enough, we have hotter. We have Navajo peppers and scorpion peppers, which are the hottest peppers in the world.â€? On November 9, the

ďŹ nal day of shooting, the restaurant will be open and patrons interviewed about their experience at Bernie and the Boys. “People can order their food and then John

will sit down with them and ask them about what they ordered,� said Germain. “So, come down, have some great food and you could be on TV.�

Photos can be sent by mail to Dominion Command, 86 Aird Place, Ottawa, ON, K2L 0A1. Contributors are asked not to send originals, because they cannot be returned.

St. Anthony’s students shatter Terry Fox goal Last Thursday, students from St. Antony’s school participated in the nation wide Terry Fox National School run day. Students had a great time during the run, but the real goal was to raise money for cancer research. The fundraising goal this year was set at $5,000. Students went light years above and

beyond, raising a whopping $7,487. Pictured are the school’s top fundraisers; (back, l-r) Maureen Peters, Angelina Stanger, Emma Doyle, Lucas Aulenback, Gavin Makse, (front) Kira Kostelecky, Sophia Kolafa, Asli Doel and Colton Seely.

Nacmine Community Hall Association calls for volunteers Michael James | inSide Drumheller One of the most important areas in any community is the local park. It provides a place for children to play and families to be together. The Nacmine Community Hall Association is working on enhancing the Nacmine Community Park even more. To do that, the Nacmine Association is asking for residents help in maintaining the park. “There’s only about half a dozen of us. We could use some help,â€? said Jim Decore, with the Nacmine Community Hall Association. “People assume the Town does everything,’s all done by volunteers.â€? One of the major tasks done by the Nacmine Association is ensuring the skating rink is well maintained and clearing o snow. The rink is widely used during

the winter. “The skating rink, we’ve had nothing but great comments. Kids come out from Carbon, Orkney, farms, and Drumheller to skate. We have Dragons out here skating until the lights go out at night,� said Decore. Plans are in the works to add a new swing set to the park. If all goes well, the swing set should be complete this fall. “The swing set is the priority right now. There used to a swing set here with four swings. We used to put up two telephone poles with a pole across and attached the swings to that, but now things have to be safer,� said Decore. “An eight foot high swing set with four swings is about $7,000. They’re not cheap, because the set has to be approved, the base approved, and they have to have a certain type of gravel.�

The Nacmine Community Hall Association was able to secure funding to help pay for the installation. To raise money for projects, the Nacmine Association hosts pancake breakfasts, bingo nights, and applies for grants. The Town of Drumheller has also provided work-in-kind on projects. Next year, plans include adding shrubs and planting trees along the lanes. The result would be a greener and more inviting space. In previous years, the Nacmine Association has raised money for and constructed the new playground, skating rink, and skate shack at the park. The rink and shack cost $52,000 and $30,000, respectively. Anyone wishing to get involved and help keep the Nacmine Park a place for residents to enjoy for years to come are encouraged to contact the Nacmine Com-

munity Hall at 403-8234383. Members of other communities can also contact their local Community Association to help keep Drumheller’s parks going

Mural to accompany Miner’s Memorial Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller


The committee that took the lead in celebrating the centennial of coal mining in the valley are getting closer to erecting a permanent memorial to the miners who died working in the valley coal industry. It is also a step closer to having a giant mural by a local artist who has a little coal dust under his fingernails. Marcel Deschenes is working on a mural that will be displayed along side the Miner’s Memorial in the park beside the Civic Centre. He has been working for a couple of weeks by the wash house at the Atlas coal mine. While he has many more hours left to put in to the work, it is coming from a familiar place. As a young artist, he came though the valley with his wife about 35 years ago in a friend’s canoe on a five-day trip from Red Deer on the river. At the time he was living in Calgary and studying art. “We camped by the river and had just a tarp, it was magical,” he recalls. They were not able to camp near Drumheller, so they floated down to East Coulee, A community of miners and farmers. “We just fell in love with it, people were still living a wholesome life, with gardens, and no one locked their doors,” he said. “By the time we were heading back to Calgary we were thinking about getting a place out here.” He said a few miners had their eyes out for a place for Deschenes and eventually he was offered a home. Once settled in the first order of business was to find work, and 35 years ago at the Atlas Coal Mine was still open. “To me it was “Just be

cool and don’t get hurt,” he said adding that as a 30 year old, he was young, and the old miners looked out for him. One of the first things he had to do was put a huge heavy shaker screen back in place. The old guys watched him carefully as heaved the steel in to place. When he completed the task they all laughed and said he was hired. He put in two winters, loading boxcars and driving truck. He said he felt spiritually fulfilled in East Coulee. While the community was in a slump with an aging population and the industry sighing is last breath, the people were generous and giving. The young couple became a family and were welcomed with open arms. They never lacked a baby sitter. Later Deschenes became part of a movement to preserve and restore the heritage of the community. He recalls after the mines were closed the site was left to decay. Despite that, the history was compelling that bus loads of foreign tourists who visited the Royal Tyrrell Museum also came through East Coulee and tromped around. He felt compelled to show them around. He as also one of the founders of the Dinosaur Valley Historical Society and worked many years on preserving area artifacts. The Society operates the East Coulee School Museum, as well as other items in the area of historical significance. “I thought, wow, abandoned school, abandoned mines, wouldn’t that be great some day. When I left working here (the Atlas), I thought this has got to be a museum some day. There are 125 mines and we are not going to do something?” Fast forward to today, the young and “artistic” newcomer to the

community could now be considered an old timer. The community went from a hardscrabble mining town on the verge of extinction, to an eclectic thriving community of artists, retirees and young families. His mural is comprised of 10 four foot by eight foot panels all done in charcoal, and then sealed to protect it from the elements. Deschenes said the black and white mural will encompass the different eras of mining. It is connected with a central image of a pony cart at the mouth of a mine. “I am putting in the new and the old so you can see on one side the guy is wearing a modern helmet, and the background is guys with campus caps and the early beginnings. I am trying to put the whole package together of time gone by,” he said. The Miner’s memorial is slated to be unveiled on November 10. While he figures the mural won’t quite be ready in time, he will continue to toil with his memories and his work.

I now prefer this over a regular crust, too. If you have a mandolin, that makes the potato slices even and nice and thin. Use 2 medium russet potatoes to slice into thin rounds. Toss with a little olive oil and salt and pepper, then place on two baking sheets (in a single layer). Bake to soften, but not brown (about 1015 mins at 450). Line a 9 inch pie pan with the potato going around the edge first, overlapping a bit. Have them standing up so they stick out above the rim. Then, line the bottom of the pan. Fill with your

Drumheller connection to feature film opening in October

Dino hunters extraordinaire Jason Wan Lim, who graduated in Drumheller is seeing his first feature film premiers in Calgary on October 17. A number

of former Durmhellerites played a part in the production from behind the scenes to on the screen. photo submitted

A movie opening in Calgary on October 17 has a distinctly Drumheller flavour. In fact much of the talent behind the production is based in the valley. Later this month Gettin’ In, an admittedly crude teen comedy will be opening at Canon Meadows Theatre. This is the first major production of Jason Wan Lim, and many of the formative teen years experiences he draw on came from high school days in the valley. “Ironically, although the feature wasn’t shot there, Drumheller seems to have a major impact on my artistic mode. The feature has recollections and memories of my life from Drumheller,” said Wan Lim. An Asian character in the movie draws on Wan Lim’s experience as a youngster of Asian descent growing up in a small primarily Caucasian community. “Some of that does factor in for sure,” he said, adding that the film has a light take on these issues. “We don’t go very deep, we are a teen comedy and my investor hired me on to do a teen comedy that is marketable, and that is what we aimed at,” said Wan Lim.

The Drumheller connection doesn’t end there. While Wan Lim wrote and directed the film, Josh Brennand helped develop the story. Jon Sheppard, Brennand and Derek Losoncy co-produced the production, and his sister Tanya is a producer, production designer and composer for the project. All four appear in the film. “I graduated in Drumheller, so did many people in the film,” said Wan Lim. The film follows some typical teen movie motifs including awkward young lust and love, and growing up. Wan Lim admits it’s not for everybody, but is confident it will appeal to it target demographic. Wan Lim says right now getting everything ready for it’s a lot of work. “As the day draws near it will be more exciting,” he says, adding the four night screening is a chance for its target audience to see the film. One hurdle for any film is to secure distribution, and he says the have some strong interest from companies to get he film to a wider audience He is grateful for the experience making this movie. “It wasn’t the movie I originally wrote, but I enjoyed it. It was prob-

ably the most fun I had in my life being on the set and working with the crew, cast and producers. At the end of the day, whether it is the genre that you pick, to have creative control over the project means a lot,” said Wan Lim Wan Lim explains Gettin’ In is part of the three film deal, and he is looking forward to the projects ahead. The film premiers at Canyon Meadows Cinema on October 17 on 7 p.m., and runs October 18, 22 and 24 at 7:15 p.m.

The Duncan family enjoyed coming to Drumheller for Canada Day Long Weekend and camping. They also participated in the Great Drumheller Dinosaur Challenge. They were meticulous and were able to hunt down every dinosaur, and out

Music Festival picks dates for 2013 competition Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

The longest running festival in the valley is getting set to continue its springtime tradition. The annual Drumheller and District Music Festival committee has selected dates from the coming year. The festival will be played out on stages and halls throughout Drumheller from March 11 to 21, 2013. The ďŹ nal concert will be March 22. “Very soon many will be choosing their pieces and then practice, practice, practice,â€? said Music Festival committee

member Doug Wade. Disciplines include piano, choir, instrumental and band, dance, musical theatre, voice, speech and school music all participate in the festival. These performers will be in front of accomplished adjudicators oering feedback and direction. From the Drumheller and District Music Festival, students can be recommended to compete provincially. Members of the Music festival include Lynn Edwards, Jenny Fong Fun, Doug Wade, Barb Murray, Debbie Boot

and Cindy Kendell. The committee is grateful for the many volunteers that come out during the annual festival to help at the venues, but the committee is in desperate need of commitment from more community members to join the committee to organize the festival. The committee meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. For more information on how to get involved, contact Edwards at 403-823-7483 or email or call Murray at 403823-9100.

When one in eight women in Alberta will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, it might be time for you screen test. Screen Test is Alberta Health Services’ mammography service, and is part of the Alberta Breast Cancer Screening Program. Its mobile unit will be in Drumheller later this month providing the simple but important screening. According to AHS, Screen Test provides high quality screening mammography and breast health education. Screen Test has consistently exceeded international standards for the early detection of breast cancer.

Breast cancer is primarily a female health issue, although it can develop in men. More than three quarters of women diagnosed are over the age of 50. While a family history can increase the risk, 80 per cent of women diagnosed have no family history. The service is available without a referral to women aged 50-59 with no breast problems who have not had a mammography in the last 12 months, do not have implants or a history of breast cancer. For women ages 40-49 a referral is needed. Screen Test will be in Drumheller from October 26 to November 22. To book an appointment, call 1-800-667-0604.

Local foody’s Cocktails for the Cure parties featured in cooking magazine Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

A Drumheller area woman is to be featured in a well-known cuisine magazine for her part in supporting friends through her cooking. Lori Stefanishion, who writes Food For Thought for inSide Drumheller, was in Vancouver for a photo shoot for Healthy Cooking magazine. It was for an article that is to appear during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The article focuses on her “Cocktails for the Cure” parties. “It was fun and different,” she said of the photo shoot. She figured it would be quick, but it took a good part of the day. She also had to whip up a couple of her appetizers for the photos. She explains she is a field editor for Taste of Home magazine and has appeared in the magazine. Her recipes have also appeared in their publications. Last year she was featured in Taste

of Home magazine with her Christmas entertaining ideas, and it was passed along to Healthy Cooking. The “Cocktails for the Cure” were parties she held with Heather Guterson in memory of Heather’s mother Theresa Hamilton, who died of Breast cancer. “When they lost her to breast cancer, this is when this got underway. She (Theresa) passed away at this time of year and it was always a hard time for Heather, so doing these things helped,” said Stefanishion.
