The three had been peacefully ďŹ shing for roughly three hours when the ďŹ rst large swell hit the stern of the Aquaholic and ooded the engine. Veenhuis believes the swells were caused by a large cruise ship passing through the area. “Basically we had four or ďŹ ve large consecutive swells hit the back of the boat shortly after a large cruise ship passed by on our stern.

We pumped up the inatable (raft) as fast as we could,â€? said Veenhuis. “In three minutes we went from being in trouble to abandoning ship. We did everything we needed to do in min-

They were then left stranded in the ocean, held aoat only by their life jackets, a half-inated raft, and a nearly empty cooler, meant for any ďŹ sh they caught. “Even in the water we didn’t panic. If one person was getting too cold, we’d pull them up on the raft and get them warmed up,â€? said Veenhuis.

“After 20 minutes, the search and rescue plane went by, but we weren’t sure if it saw us. We all went quiet for a few minutes, then Je looked over and said, ‘hey man, did anybody bring Wilson?’ When the big cruise ship turned around then the two guys started singing the Love Boat theme. That kept us going.â€? The search and rescue plane returned and circled over the three men. After 40 minutes in the water, a Sea King Helicopter and Coast Guard boat arrived. The men were taken aboard the Coast Guard ship and treated for hypothermia. However, their injuries could have been worse, considering the local wildlife. “We had hypothermia, so they got us inside and helped us. Apparently the area was heavily infested with blue sharks, but luckily none showed up,â€? said Veenhuis. Veenhuis has been boating for 30 years and had spent the prior 40 days boating o the west coast on the Aquaholic, which he purchased three years ago. “It’s an ex-Coast Guard boat from Washington, Coast Guard certiďŹ ed, and everything was working properly. It was just an unfortunate situation. We were out there ďŹ shing for three hours before the incident. There were swells, but nothing the ship couldn’t handle,â€? said Veenhuis.

Drumheller region unemployment second lowest in province Michael James| inSide Drumheller

The Drumheller area is once again leading the province in employment according to the most recent statistics from the Government of Canada. In the month of July, the Drumheller-Camrose economic region, which extends east to the Saskatchewan border, had an unemployment rate of 3.7 per cent, the second lowest in Alberta. The lowest was Grande Prairie-Athabasca-Peace River with 3.3 per cent. “The most current unemployment figures, as of July, are at 3.7 per cent, which is the second lowest in the province, but over the past year, we’ve had the lowest rate most of the time. The province was at (an unemployment rate of ) 4.5,” said Rob Lunman, business and industry lead with Alberta Works. The low unemployment market has left the area brimming with employment opportunities. “There are a lot of opportunities in our area. There’s agriculture, labour positions, oil and gas servicing, and really just jobs of all kinds. Even after the tourist season, there are always positions available. There are jobs across the whole gamut, from entry-level jobs to professional positions, and from unskilled labour to trades. There are opportunities across the board,” said Lunman. However, the low rate creates challenges. Most positions cannot be filled, especially when considering the population drain faced by rural areas. “Communities are struggling to find people to fill jobs. As businesses and companies grow, I don’t know if the population is necessarily growing along with it,” said Lunman. In addition, employers are being hard pressed to fill positions, with some remaining vacant for months. Lunman suggested employers take a look at how they attempt to hire new employees. “The market has changed, so you have to sell that position and your business. With such a low unem-

ployment rate, people have so many choices. Many of the people you might want to come work for you, probably already work somewhere else. If you’re going to try to attract people to your business, you have to let them know the benefits,” said Lunman. “Another key is to keep the staff you currently have. If you can keep them happy and working for you, then it reduces your need to go out and find new staff. If you try to make a positive work environment, not only will it make your existing staff happy, then it will be easier to find new staff when you need to.”



The Drumheller-Camrose economic region is booming and has the second lowest unemployment rate in the province as of July at 3.7 per cent. However, such a low rate creates challenges for employers, who are having trouble filling vacancies. Alberta Works suggests employers create a positive work environment to attract and retain staff.

originally slated to appear but was unable to attend. In his stead, Claude Lemieux, one of only 10 players in history to win a Stanley Cup with three teams, will be appearing. Former hockey player– turned broadcaster, Jim Ralph, fills out the bill for a night of fond hockey talk from some of the game’s best. “The biggest thing is these guys are a little bit removed from the game, but they are still very popular, and still do a lot in smaller communities. I think people in our generation will love to hear the stories they can tell,” said Dragons coach Brian Curran. Trottier had a legendary career. The Saskatchewan native hit the NHL with a storm and was Rookie of the Year, playing for the Islanders during the 1975-76 season. He has six championship rings as a player and one as an assistant coach. Four of these were with the Islanders between 19801983. He played in New York until 1990, when he was moved to Pittsburgh.



Claude Lemieux

There, he was part of two more championship teams. He retired in 1994, at the time he was ranked sixth in NHL point totals. “Bryan Trottier is a Hall of Fame hockey player, and that stands for itself,” said Curran. While Trottier had six rings, Lemieux had four, his first being with the Canadiens in 1986. In 1990, he was traded to the Devils and earned his second ring in 1995. The next season he was traded to the Avalanche and won ring number three. In 1999, he was sent back to New Jersey and in 2000 won his fourth championship. He retired with 80 playoff goals, ninth in NHL history. Marty McSorley was an important part of two Stanley Cup winning Edmonton Oilers squads, but scoring was not typically his first responsibility. He made his NHL debut with the Penguins, but it was with Edmonton that he became household name, joining the hockey dynasty alongside Gretzky, Messier and Kurri. In 1988, he was part

of “the trade” and was sent to Los Angles with Gretzky. He was with the Kings until 1993, when he was traded to Pittsburgh. This didn’t last long and he was back in LA to assist Gretzky break the all-time scoring record. In 1999, his NHL career ended with the Bruins. Curran played at the same time as McSorley and it stands to reason the two may have went toe-to-toe at one time or another. All of that is left on ice. “One thing people have to realize that most guys I knew and fought with are some of the greatest guys you’ll ever meet. You just played a role. But Marty played a significant role as a player, he was much more developed than I was for sure,” said Curran. The Evening of the Stars is a great chance to hear stories from some of the game’s greats and support the team. Throughout the evening there will be a dinner, silent auction, live auction and draw prizes. Some of the silent auction items are incredibly rare pieces of sports memorabilia, including dozens of autographed jerseys, and even a Montréal Forum

seat. The live auction items are unique travel experiences. There is everything from luxury salmon fishing excursions to the opportunity to judge a World Tropic Bikini Contest in Las Vegas. While the evening is in support of the team, Curran said the experience for the Dragons will be just as important for them as individuals. He said they are inviting at least one of the featured guests to come and address the players in the locker room. “When you have players that are as well known as these guys, the team will look to them like there is no tomorrow. They will inspire them to be better. And it could have a big impact on them learning what it takes to be a pro. There are a lot of tough roads and a lot of learning,” said Curran. The Evening of the Stars is on Friday, September 20 at the Badlands Community Facility at 5 p.m. For more information or tickets, contact the Dragons office at 403823-2022, or email pam@ f37c38b

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!

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, the week ahead is looking pretty good, as you will find people are more sensitive to your needs. Work with those willing to work with you. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, your visions of how things should be might differ from how things really are. Work toward improving those things that need some work, and things will turn out just fine. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Some surprises come your way this week, Gemini. But things will soon begin to fall into place. Just be patient before you make important decisions. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Things may seem a bit strained this week, Cancer. But all it takes is a little cooperation and an increased focus on teamwork, and things will quickly return to normal.

Titans fans had plenty to cheer about last Friday when the senior team took to the ďŹ eld and utterly demolished the competition.

“Last week we challenged the guys to step up and fill their roles better and they did. This is what happens when you have everyone playing as a team.� Ken Fournier Head Coach

The Titans defeated the Strathmore Spartans by a colossal 68-0. The game was only the second in the Titans’ regular season schedule. “Last week we challenged the guys to step up and ďŹ ll their roles better and they did. This is what happens when you have everyone playing as a team,â€? said head coach Ken Fournier. The Titans were in control the entire game. On oence, the team was able to capitalize on big passes and the running game. Conversely, the SparGo for the

Red Box

tans oence couldn’t gain any traction against the Titans defence, who generated a number of key tackles, sacks, and turnovers to keep the Spartans scoreless. “There were tackles coming from all over the defence. On oence, there were seven dierent guys who scored,â€? said Fournier. The win comes after a narrow 20-19 defeat for the Titans at the hands of the Crescent Heights

Vikings, out of Calgary. “We had a couple tough games right o the bat. Getting this win is great, but a ‘W’ is a ‘W,’â€? said Fournier. The Titans were scheduled to play again this weekend, but their game against the George McDougall Mustangs, out of Airdrie, has been cancelled. The Titans’ next game is an away game on September 20.

The Drumheller Terrapins took to the field for the first time, and what the scoreboard didn’t show, was it was a victory in itself. The dream of a peewee football team in Drumheller has been a long time coming, and it was realized this year. Last Saturday they were in Cochrane to line up on the grid iron. “It was great, we got out there and we got to play,” said coach Cory Miles of the soggy Saturday game. “Everyone out there had a big smile on their face, because it was pouring rain and they were all muddy… the new jerseys got broken in.” Coach Miles explained they were in tough shape going in to the game. He had heard from Cochrane’s coach before the game and learned they did not have enough players. They agreed to staging the game with Cochrane using a few bantam players, so long as the action on the field remained safe. “It was a very good experience,” said Miles. “We were loud and proud.” While Cochrane ran away with a 36-0 win, Miles says the team was not disheartened. “I didn’t let on we were

playing bantam players until about the third quarter. I told them that actually no peewees scored any points on them,” said Miles. Throughout the game the Terrapins continued to improve and learn their roles on the field. “They started out a little shaky, a few players forgot their positions, but by the third quarter we were looking a like a good football team out there,” said Miles adding they were missing about six of their 25 players

due to other commitments. The team is hosting its home opener tonight (Friday, September 13) under Friday night lights at 7 p.m. They are playing the Red Deer Steelers, another strong team. “We’re going to be in a battle again, but we should have our whole team which should help,” said Miles. This season the Terrapins are were not able to join a league, so the will be playing in exhibition matches.

on the

run by Michael James

I’m turning over a new leaf in regards to my health and have pledged to run the Dinosaur Valley Half Marathon. Every two weeks I’ll write about my training and what I’ve learned. It has been quite a journey, but on Sunday I ran the Dinosaur Valley Half Marathon and survived. I didn’t exactly set a blistering pace, far from it. I finished with a time of 2:36:12:52, which is around what I wanted leading up to the race. Most importantly, I’m happy I did the Half Marathon and pushed

myself out of my comfort zone, despite my legs barely working the next day. However, now that I’m done, I can’t sit back and relax. I’ll continue running and trying to get fit. I’m hoping next year to do the Drumheller Triathlon and get a better time in the Half Marathon. Thank you to everyone who took the time to read my journey and I hope it has inspired more people to push themselves out of their comfort zones and be more active.
