Concert not able to support Valley Bus

With Christmas around the corner and locals gearing up to get their Christmas tree, the questions answered was, would you prefer a real tree or fake tree?

Fans enjoyed the nostalgia of Prizm on stage this summer, but because of low attendance, organizers were not able to realize their goal of supporting the Valley Bus Society. insode photo by Patrick Kolafa

Fraid Knot and local singer songwriter Jan Krueger. The headliner was Canadian 70’s rockers Prizm. Displayed on its promotion material was that the proceeds of the concert were to support the Drumheller Valley Bus Society, but according to organizer Darcy Thompson, they weren’t able to make a donation to the local service because the show didn’t break even. “We ended up losing money on our event due to attendance,” said Thompson. “It was an excellent event, the Chamber was well promoted and the sponsors, it was just the lack of folks. It’s trial and error too.” He said what may have cut into attendance was the fact there were a couple weddings on the same night as well as a UFC fight. “I spoke to them (the Valley Bus Society), and explained to them they were going to receive some of the proceeds that were made by the event, but it seems we took a loss,” said Thompson. This includes the funds raised through a draw of a guitar and other items. “The bottom line is we were close to $10,000 in the hole,” he said. He has squared up the expenses, and even took money out of his pocket to cover the bill.

“It’s tough, you try to do something for the town, and then you don’t get the turnout,” he said. “I feel bad it wasn’t the success that we originally anticipated.” Vice president of the Valley Bus Society, Lyle Anderson, was among about a half dozen volunteers from the Valley Bus Society who volunteered to work at the event taking tickets. He understands the concert promoters had the best intentions to support the society, and it is a shame they were not able to contribute to the service. He explains one thing that irked him was there was a barbecue being raffled at the event, and it had a sign on it saying the funds from the raffle would go to the charity. When the volunteers took notice of this, a number of them promptly bought tickets to win it. In the end however, the organization did not receive any funds. Despite this, Anderson says they would partner with the same promoters again if they offered to stage another event. As for Thompson, he says maybe a bigger drawing act could help. “I think if we do it again we would get bigger names in to encourage more people to come out,” said Thompson.

Drumheller man qualifies for Boston Marathon Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller

ing, David Trumpour, 23, has qualified for the Boston Marathon. This is the oldest marathon of its kind, and arguably the most famous. It goes April 19, 2010, and David will be in the pack.

A young Drumheller man has qualified for one of the most prestigious road races on the globe. In less than a year of train-

Scotiabank’s Adopt A Grandparent program underway Jamie Kimmel | inSide Drumheller

Now the program includes people from the Home care program who access services in their home, and those in need who must access acute care during the holiday season along with those in continuing care. Anyone can adopt a Grandparent for Christmas. The Bank of Nova Scotia will match up those who are interested with residents in continuing care, home care and acute care. Purchases can be made at any retailer. Once the gifts are purchased, they can be brought back to the Bank of Nova Scotia in a gift bag where the volunteer elves will get them ready for delivery. “All gifts should be signed from your secret angel, please understand that many of the people who have been referred to this program do not know anything about this program, and do not consider themselves as less fortunate. They have a great deal of pride, their self esteem would be deflated and feelings would be hurt,” says staff at Bank of Nova Scotia. An important point is that many people referred have various levels of confusion. If you sign your name they will not know who you are or why you are giving them a gift, leading to more confusion and anxiety because they think that perhaps they should know who you are. The DTHR no longer supplies residents with personal products and many residents are in need of items such as, toothpaste, mouthwash, lotion, shampoo, nail clippers, perfume and aftershave. Purchasers should be limited to a maximum of 4 items per resident. Some residents voiced concern that they don’t want to receive gifts based on space to put things in their rooms.


As we move forward into the Christmas season, the Bank of Nova Scotia is preparing for their annual Adopt a Grandparent program.

“All gifts should be signed from your secret angel.” Staff at Scotiabank

The Tree of names will be up and ready next week, after that time people can stop in and register. A card will be chosen from the tree with the wish list of a resident. Items must be dropped off by no later than December 18. It is important to remember those who are less fortunate. Unfortunately some people who access care from Drumheller Health Centre either do not have any family or have very limited funds or in some cases both. The Adopt a Grandparent program began in Autumn of 2000. They traditionally used donated money to buy very small gifts for continuing care residents who the staff felt would not receive Christmas gifts. Staff would purchase gifts with their own money and give them to the residents. By 2000 the need became so great that an organized strategy began that sparked the Adopt A Grandparent initiative. Optimism was low in their first year and all that was expected were small trinkets and maybe enough gifts to pass around. The out pour of support was overwhelming from Drumheller and surrounding areas. Onboard were churches, 4H clubs, families, volunteers, entire hospital departments and many businesses. Enough gifts were received to ensure all in continuing care had a great Christmas.

“I’m very excited,” said his mother Barbara Trumpour. She says David was never really a big runner. Through school he mostly played hockey. Now living and working in Calgary, just this spring he began training. He competed in a couple short road races and finally decided to take on the marathon. His first race was in Edmonton in September. “He came in at three hours and 20 minutes. He found out if he could finish the Okanagan Marathon in Kelowna in under three hours and 10 minutes, he could qualify for Boston,” said Barbara. “He did some training in Calgary and came in at 3:06.47 at Kelowna.” David was 10th out of 580 runners and third in his age grouping. The Boston Marathon is the only North American marathon where competitors have to qualify. On average it attracts 20,000 runners taking part. David Trumpour finishes the The Okanagan Marathon on Sunday, October 11 in 3:06.47, fast enough to qualify for the Boston Marathon in April of next year. inSide photo submitted

Dragons strong in exciting OT loss

Doug Jones chases down a puck in the offensive night. The Dragons are back home Saturday night end. The Dragons looked reinvigorated as then to play Grande Prairie. mailphoto by Patrick Kolafa fought to a close 6-5 loss to the Oiler on Tuesday Patrick Kolafa | Inside Drumheller heels of a decisive victory over net, how we finish checks and

The Dragons had one of their best offensive efforts on Tuesday night, but narrowly missed delivering the knockout blow to the Okotoks Oilers. The Dragons were in an end to end battle with the Oilers on Tuesday night at home. This game was to make up for the postponed November 1 match up, and followed on the

the Bonnyville Pontiacs. The Dragons looked faster, stronger and more prepared. “The reason that win (versus Bonnyville) was important was because our guys have been doing such a good job all along, learning how to play the game the right way and actually playing the right way. In so far as where we put puck and how we skate on them, and how we attack the

play physically, how we control the neutral zone and Dzone,” said coach Dan Price. “They are getting really good at all of those things and to see them rewarded offensively was really important so they know and to finally see them rewarded and see the puck go in, was really important. They know and believe it works if they play the right way.” The momentum carried

from their win into Tuesday night’s game. The Dragons struck first with a goal from Robert Geddes a minute and half in, assisted by Evan Warner and Marcus Toye. It would not be the last time fans would hear from this line. Okotoks went up 2-1, but Geddes scored his second on the power play to end the period tied. Warner has his second assist of the night. Just 49 seconds into the second period Toye found the net assisted by Doug Jessey and Warner had his third. “Geddes likes to find the quiet spots on the ice and he can put the puck in the net from almost anywhere,” said Warner. “Marcus Toye has really improved, it is really nice to see him rewarded. We are a hard working line and we play the right way the majority of the time we are out there, and it is starting to come, and it is nice.” Okotoks tied the game, but two power play goals in a row saw the Dragons up 5-3. Scoring respectively were Corey Tyrell, assisted by Matthew Brown and Toye, and Doug Jessey, from Tyrell and Geddes. With 20 seconds left in the second, the Oilers closed the gap, and then 22 seconds into the third period the game was tied at five. The rest of the period was back and forth, and just 18 seconds into the first overtime, Okotoks won 6-5. Price says the key moments

of the game was at the close of the second, the beginning of the third period, and the start of overtime. “As a coach it is my responsibility to make sure the team is mentally engaged right until the end of the period and right when the period begins. We weren’t in each of those three situations, and that was the difference in the game,” said Price. “Consistency, concentration and mental focus, these are skills that our team is learning. At the times when that skill broke down a little bit, Okotoks struck.” Price said one thing discussed was how to reengage the team on defense when their opponents are carrying the play. “We discussed what is a good way to help our guys when they take the foot off the gas physically to reengage physically and shut down the other team’s cycle,” said Price. He explains when they are trapped on defense, they need to rally to get a stop. “If the offensive team has pressure or sustained pressure for more than 15 seconds…at that point you try to get a whistle; ice it, fall on it, give to the goalie or freeze it. It is something we haven’t installed…but clearly putting something like that in place might help us reengage mentally and help us focus.” The Dragons are in Olds this Friday to take on the Grizzlies, but are back on home ice Saturday, November 28 to play the Grande Prairie Storm.

They have been invited to perform at the Olympic Torch Relay Celebrations in Drumheller come January 16 , 2010. “It is really quite an honour, when you see the big celebrations on the news and the people carrying it in, we’re excited,” said Bill Hamm choir director and music director for Rosebud Theatre.

“I think it is going to be an event, and to have this big choir and this big sound, it’s going to work really well.” Hamm said while searching on a choral website he found a mention there was a call out for choirs to perform at the Celebration Communities, he made contact. “I had to submit an application form and send in a CD of us performing (to the organizing Committee),”

nowned cartoonist Charles Schultz. The production is by Rosebud School of the Arts (RSA) Mentorship Programme and runs Friday November 27 until December 19 at the Rosebud Studio Stage. You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown marks the first Broadway musical done by the RSA Mentorship Programme. In the past, the RSA Mentorship Programme has focused on creating a wide variety of shows ranging from Shakespeare to contemporary and even Greek tragedies. Now the pendulum has swung to the light-hearted comedy of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

Director, Mark Lewandowski grew up reading the Peanuts comic strip, and looking back remarks how wonderfully simple Schultz’s style of storytelling was. “It’s a fun statement on being a kid - and it has a lot of heart,” explains Lewandowski. “I never really understood the character of Charlie Brown as a child. And now as a director, I realize he’s this wonderfully unconfident optimist—he doesn’t make it, but he tries. As a kid, I loved Schroeder and Linus the most. As an adult though, I realize it’s all the characters packaged together as a team that make it fun. They all have their lovable qualities.” “Getting this show up,” continues Lewandowski, “is as much about teaching as directing. The RSA student production consists of students all in their second year at Rosebud School of the Arts, some of whom acted in a plays when they were kids. Now they have to act as kids! And, they all rise to the occasion. I’m always amazed to realize how far the second year students have progressed with just one year of theatre school under their belts. Everyone has their moments, but they found a way to rise and meet the challenges before them.” Lewandowski added that it is important to note that You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is produced entirely by the students from beginning to end. “In addition to the acting, they are totally responsible for everything from costumes to the set, lighting and props. It’s a very daunting challenge, and a memorable experience for them.” You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown is such a lovable series of snapshots of the lives of children. Like the comic strips, it has no main story, just lots of little ones. It’s a show that invites audience members to remember what it was like at that age, whether they were a Linus or a Lucy.

Former inmate fined for drug possession Patrick Kolafa | Inside Drumheller

A former inmate of the Drumheller Institution was given a hefty fine of more than $5,000 for finding drugs in his former cell. Felix Aw appeared in provincial court on Friday, November 13, facing a three count information including possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking. He pleaded guilty to simple possession of cocaine and simple possession of cannabis resin. “I am confident this is the best solution” Colin Kloot


This photo was submitted by Doug Wade who asked if we could ask our readers help in identifying the group and their purpose. It’s a local photo as the rental sign on the store to the right was posted by Drumheller Realty, and the reÁection in that store window says “Style..”.

The court heard how on October 31, 2008, Aw was moved from the Drumheller Institution to Edmonton. His cell was locked and chained. On November 5, the cell was needed and institution staff moved in to clear Aw’s effects out of the cell. In a false bottom of a TV stand, they found one gram of cocaine and 2.5 grams of hash oil. Federal prosecutor Colin Kloot offered a joint submission of a fine of $2,500 for each count to Judge L. Grieve. In doing so he conceded the crown faced evidentiary hurdles in prosecuting the case, and these hurdles influenced its decision to join the proposal. “I am confident this is the best resolution,” said Kloot. In sentencing, Judge Greive said having drugs in the institution is an attack on the safety and security of the system and Aw could very easily be sent back into the Institution. He went on to say while the public would rather see him back prison for two years, one factor that weighed heavily in his decision to endorse the joint submission was because Aw’s parent were in court supporting him. Aw was fined $5,000, plus a victim service charge. PY OF YOUR CO PIICK UP

Modest wait times characterize H1N1 clinic

Page 10 - 11


Are You Of Scandinavian Heritage? Have you seen the attractive full-color book entitled Scandinavian Connections - A Guide to Sites in Alberta? It makes a superb Christmas gift. This informative 8.5” x 11” book of 574 pages includes accounts of over 300 sites in Alberta that have strong Scandinavian connections. Featured sites include churches, schools, museums, historic buildings, signs and monuments. Many people of Nordic heritage are named in the book. The atmosphere was calm at the Drumheller Church of the Nazarene last Wednesday as dozens of resident patiently waited to get the H1N1 vaccination. The next Clinic in is on Wednesday, December 2 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. inside photo by Patrick Kolafa

Patrick Kolafa | Inside Drumheller

As H1N1 shots resumed for the general population, in Drumheller the wait times were manageable, and the clinic was organized. The the pews of The Church of the Nazarene were filled on Wednesday afternoon, as residents patiently waited for their vaccinations. This was the first clinic in Drumheller since the province opened up the distribution of the H1N1 vaccination to the general public. Wait times were reported from as long as a hour and a half, to as short as 45 minutes. Dozens waited in the church with numbers, as typically five at a time were able to proceed to the line up for the shot. Patrick Lefferson was at theclinic in the late afternoon with his daughter Kayley 3, and son Jayden, 5 to get the shot. He waited about 45 minutes until he was able to get in line. While the initial mood of panic that was present earlier this fall when the vaccines were rolled out has diminished, Lefferson still feels it is important to get the shot. “I’m afraid of needles, but I know it has to be done,” he said. Brent Pedersen was also in the church awaiting his shots. He has been getting the flu shots for the last eight years. “I feel it is important, I want to do some traveling this winter,” he said. While the clinic appeared to be running smoothly. Pedersen said he has a bit of frustration leading up to it. “There was some miscommunication, and different information especially in the smaller communities, but it seems to be working better,”he said. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada’s website, there are almost 300

deaths related to H1N1 in Canada. In Alberta there have been 45 deaths related to the virus, three in the last week. The next H1N1 vaccination clinic in Drumheller is Wednesday, December 2 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Church of the Nazarene.

The Tree of Hope is a way for those who have lost a loved one to take a moment to remember during the Christmas season. In its 15th season, the annual ceremony had to be cancelled.
