Historical Site signs to be replaced Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller
Many residents may have noticed a number of the historical information boards throughout Drumheller being taken down. Rest assured, they will return better and stronger than ever. The Drumheller Rotary Club, a number of years ago, erected 18 signs throughout
the valley noting many of the sites of historical importance, including the sites of mines. The Rotary Club has also acted as stewards, and this year they are going through another round of maintenance. Rotarian Ron Pedersen, along with Leo Jensen and Ron Rawlusyk are spearheading the project, which began in March of 2009. The signs are being replaced with stron-
ger, more durable bases. “The new material is called Folia, and it is a half-inch exterior grade material, and apparently it is UV and graffiti resistant,” said Pedersen. He adds the current signs are cedar and have been replaced twice. These new signs are expected to have a longer usable life. “With the pricing it was going to cost us more to restore the cedar,” he said. During this project, the Rotary Club has been working closely with Linda Digby and the Atlas Coal Mine. Pedersen said the new signs will be updated and the photos will be of better quality and a higher resolution. There were also some minor changes to make sure the text on the signs was historically correct.
“There were some corrections or inconsistencies on the signs for whatever reason,” said Pedersen. “Maybe the information of the day wasn’t up to snuff, but with the help of the Atlas Coal Mine Society we were able to bring it up to snuff, as close as we can to being perfect.” The Royal Tyrrell Museum was also involved in helping do the design and graphic work on the signs. Canalta was supportive to the project by helping to partially finance the endeavour. Hi-way 9 Express was also supportive. In all the restoration is expected to come in at about $26,000. The club has received the signs, but Pedersen said there is much work to be done on the signposts and supports,
and the club hopes to enlist some help from youth or sports groups in the area. “Now that the tourism season is over, we felt this would be a good time to get the work done, between the fall and the spring,” said Pedersen. “We need some welding done and brackets, and Norma Hawthorne of HB Industries is graciously donating material and man-power for that.” They are aiming to unveil the new signs in the centennial year of coal mining in the valley in 2011. He says the partnership with the Atlas Coal mine will not end. Plans are, after the new installation is complete, that the stewardship of the signs is to be handed over to the Atlas Coal Mine.

He also has experience in construction, entrepreneurship, property and business management, retail sales and farming. His endeavours have allowed him to quietly support numerous organizations in their goals of
creating programs and opportunities that will enhance the quality of life for every demographic in Drumheller.

Knox United Church celebrates its first century
Knox United Church is celebrating 100 years on the weekend of October 16 and 17. Events include a
century of wedding gowns fashion show, a banquet and lots of time to share memories. inSide photo by Patrick Kolafa
Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller
From its humble beginnings, gathered in Thomas Greentreeâ€™s cabin 100 years ago, parishioners, with the little they had, pulled together in an area then known as â€œOver the Red Deer Riverâ€? into what is now the Knox United Church. The Knox United Church is celebrating its centennial on the weekend of October 16-17, and after 100 years, it continues to be a vibrant community institution, and its history tells the story not just of the Church and its members, but of how the community at large was built. The famous evangelist Dwight L. Moody had a profound eďŹ€ect on many during the late 1800s, including a young man living in Belfast named John Brown. He graduated from Princeton and was ordained by the Presbyterian Church in Canada in 1903. According to a history his daughter, Margaret Zinn, presented to the congregation in 1979, in 1909 her parents came from Airdrie by team and wagon to a homestead in the Verdant Valley area. Her description of Drumheller at the time was â€œconsisting of a few houses, the Red Deer River with a dangerous ford, buďŹ€alo trails winding here and there, and the odd pile of bones where an animal had died.â€? The ďŹ rst service was reported to be held at Thomas Greentreeâ€™s cabin, but it was common that service be held at private homes, and Zinn said her dad preached at the homes of the Wilsons, Greenes, Bixbys and Hardys, to name a few. Services were then held at a restaurant on a property owned by Sid Skuce. By all accounts, the community of Drumheller grew quickly and when a school was built, they began services at the school in 1912. In 1914, as the town continued to expand, a new school was built, and the congregation was able to purchase the former school
and made it its ďŹ rst permanent home. The Church blossomed as a Sunday School was organized, as was a Ladies Aid and choir. The Church continued as Rev. William Cruikshank succeeded Rev. Brown. He was followed by Rev. S.W. Thomson and Rev. W.B Mahon before Rev. W.B. Bartlett was appointed. Under Bartlett, the Church saw many changes. The Churchâ€™s charge became selfsupporting and it adopted the name Knox United Church. As the community grew so did the congregation, and the need for a new church building became urgent. The plans were for a church that could seat at least 300. The Church appealed to the Church and Manse Board of the Presbyterian Church for help and received a $5,000 gift and a loan for $10,000. The building cost about $31,000, and that left a tough task for the Church. The Ladies Aid was very active in fundraising for the construction of the Church as well as the purchase and installation of the pipe organ that was completed in 1929. The 1930s were a struggle for the Church but as the decade came to a close, the board returned to stability, and in 1943, they were able to discharge the mortgage on the Church. The Church moved to build a hall, which was completed in 1949. This hall became a hub hosting thousands of events and providing the Church with a space to deliver its programs and services. At the time, there was no gymnasium in Drumheller, so the Hall also became a sports hub. Growth seemed to never stop for the Church and in 1960, more renovations were discussed to provide more classroom space, oďŹƒces and chapel. The unique Tudor entrance of the building was transformed into more working space. Beyond the bricks and mortar, the Churchâ€™s service to the
community has been a constant. It has been a leader in Christian education for young people since its inception, and has always had a strong womenâ€™s movement, based on camaraderie and service. Music has always been a part of worship service, and it has continued. Music also served the community through fundraisers and was always a source of pride for the congregation. About three years ago, it purchased a grand piano, and Toni Wilson still serves as the organist. Today the Church is about 150 families strong. It continues to be a hub for the community. All of the Drumheller Scouting and Guiding movements are based at the Church, as is the Bedrock Playschool. The Sunday School and youth are still active in the community. Currently Jan Richardson is the Minister. All of this pride will be on display on the weekend of October 16-17 at Knox United Church. Joanne Cunningham, board chair, is looking forward to the celebration, and has heard there is a good response from the community. They have also invited all of the past pastors to come for the occasion. â€œIâ€™m excited not only to look back, but into our future and envision what may come,â€? said Cunningham. On Saturday, the Church will hold a luncheon and fashion show featuring wedding dresses from the last century. There will also be board games and activities for children. That evening there will be a banquet, giving attendees ample time to sit, reminisce, and share stories. There will also be a talent show. On Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m., there will be a special anniversary Church Service, followed by activities for youth. For more information, or to RSVP contact The Knox United Church at 403-823-2366 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Ask Your Pharmacist
Q: A: Ray Ainscough B. Sc. (PHARM) with Cindy San Pharmacy student
Chances are you’re not alone when it comes to our health matters. Here, your questions are answered by our local pharmacists of Riverside Value Drug Mart.
Isn’t brand-name better than generic? Why else would the brand-name medication be so much more expensive? It is required by law that generic and brandname drugs have the same dosage, intended use, side effects, route of administration, and strength. Therefore, generic drugs are just as safe and effective as the brand-name drugs. The difference between the two is the price and the fillers. Brand-name is more expensive because the brand-name pharmaceutical company invests a substantial amount of money on research and development of the drug before the marketing of the drug. The brand-name drug is granted a patent by the government which allows for exclusive marketing of the drug for a period of time. Once the patent has expired, generic pharmaceutical companies can make and sell its generic equivalent without having to invest in the costs for development of the drug. This lowers the costs of production and allows for the drug to be sold cheaper.

Many turns in The Road to Mecca Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller
Mecca. The play was written by With a single set and three South African Athol Fugard, players, Rosebud Theatre and was, inspired by, but not based on the story of Helen Martins. She created the Owl House, a heavily decorated home in rural South Africa that is now a national monument. Using the backdrop of Apartheid-divided South Africa, it is the story of a widow, known as Miss Helen that lives alone in a small village. Her relationship with the community and church has soured over the years, save for the local pastor Rev. Marius Byleveld, and a young black woman. Her isolation came shortly after she was widowed, and in the years leading up to what the audience is privy to, they learn of Miss Helen’s passion for creating concrete Judith Buchan, left as Miss Helen and Alysa van Haastert as Elsa Bar- statues to ﬁll her yard. Inside, low on Stage in The Road to Mecca at Rosebud Theatre. the walls are adorned with photo submitted glass that reﬂects candlelight throughout her home. She has formed a bond with a younger woman, Elsa Barlow from Cape Town, who makes the arduous trip to see Miss Helen after a disturbing letter. The majority of the play centers around the relationTransparency ship between Miss Helen, Common Sense played by Rosebud’s 2010 Harvey Artist in Residence, Part of Team Judith Buchan, and Elsa Look for ways Barlow, played by Alysa van to Reduce Taxes Haastert. Miss Helen is an unintentional insurgent in her comPaid for by the Committee to elect Sandy Brown munity. She has blazed her own path, but has never let tells an eloquent story of relationships, love, trust, fear and freedom in its autumn production of The Road to

go of the traditional conventions of her upbringing. Elsa has no patience for Miss Helen’s resignation when faced with decisions that are made in the twilight of one’s life. Both are forced to face these realities as the community, led by Rev. Marius Byleveld, hope to expedite a process to have Miss Helen leave her home. Buchan is charged with the delicate job of portraying an elderly woman, who, after ﬁnding her self, is now saddled with doubt. The audience learns right away, while the play takes on large universal issues, a full understanding of the conﬂict is dependent on insight into the characters. Her performance emotionally hooks the audience.
van Haastert, in her portrayal of Elsa Barlow, has the challenge of matching the energy of the character of Miss Helen, and succeeds in her performance, creating balance. Her impatience and exasperation with the old woman is couched in love and concern. Steve Waldschmidt’s portrayal of Rev. Marius Byleveld is also delicate. Leading up to his appearance on stage, his role as a voice for the community is built up to almost a villainous status, but when he appears, his character reﬂects compassion and true concern for Miss Helen. The Road to Mecca is a step away from Rosebud’s summer grand production of Oliver!, but in its simplicity, delivers a powerful story.

when it counted the most. The Sabres hosted their third annual invitational tournament on last Friday and Saturday. The team played well all weekend, but placed fourth at the tourney. The tournament started on Friday when the Sabres
took the Strathmore at 9 a.m. The Sabres dominated the ﬁeld and had numerous chances, but the few chances that Strathmore had, they capitalized and won 2-0. Later on that day they played Canmore in a game that also doubled as league play, and tied with nil apiece. The Sabres won the shoot-out to help them advance in the tournament, but for league purposes, it goes down as a tie. Their ﬁnal game on Friday was against Holy Trinity Academy, and the Sabres fell 3-0. The Sabres’ ﬁnal game of the tournament was against High Wood High School. They were looking forward to playing this team after their close loss the previous week. “In the second half we made great strides in progressing the ball forward,
and shielding the ball and protecting it, and then making the decision on what to do with the ball,” said coach Gavin Makse, adding the team was hampered as a head wind came up in second half. The Sabres lost 1-0. Holy Trinity Academy has now made it a hat trick at the Sabre Invitational Tournament. The Sabres placed fourth. Despite the ﬁnish, Makse is undeterred. “These are not teams we can’t beat,” he said. “We have to have more anticipation. That is the biggest thing. Timing is everything in soccer, whether you are slowing down the play or anticipating the pass to go through, it can make a split second diﬀerence and that can mean a goal.” The Sabres play Strathmore on Thursday, September 30 at home.
