The Drumheller Mail - - FRONT PAGE -

Yes­ter­day (May 19) was the 40th An­niver­sary mark­ing the beginning of Hi-Way 9 Ex­press in Drumheller.

The com­pany has grown to be one of the lead­ing and most re­spected trans­porta­tion com­pa­nies in Al­berta, if not West­ern Canada, and con­tin­ues to be heav­ily in­volved in all of the com­mu­ni­ties they serve.

Con­grat­u­la­tions and thanks to the Kohut and Colberg fam­i­lies and their staff for the ex­cel­lent ser­vice you pro­vide, and may you con­tinue for many years to come.

Read­ers who have a com­plaint about a news­pa­per can con­tact Den­nis Mer­rell, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor, Al­berta Weekly News­pa­pers As­so­ci­a­tion at or Al­berta Press Coun­cil at abpc@telus­ or The Drumheller Mail at

Back at the of­fice, one of our staff, who is a bit more savvy than this writer found more num­bers and we had a name.

A gen­tle­man an­swered and it turns out the cell phone be­longs to his wife who oddly enough works next door to this of­fice.

He said he would be right down to re­trieve it and we hung up.

Thirty sec­onds later "Dad" phoned from Vegreville and he had put a 780 area code in front of the num­ber we had left, got a wrong num­ber, then put a 403 in front of it and reached us.

Af­ter we ex­plained to him that all was well and that the owner was on his way down, he said, "Tell them Dad says hi".

Funny thing is the phone had been lay­ing there for over an hour and no one ran over it!

Res­i­dents of the Vil­lage of Mun­son have a new heart de­fib­ril­la­tor for use in emer­gency sit­u­a­tions should the need arise.

STARS Am­bu­lance pro­vided fund­ing for the equip­ment through their Chain of Sur­vival fund.

Th­ese units are be­com­ing more com­mon in ru­ral ar­eas, are easy to learn to use and can pro­vide im­mense ben­e­fits to heart ail­ment pa­tients. Fri­day af­ter­noon, we were at the Chi­nook Credit

Union and found a cell phone in the gut­ter, that was so close to where the ve­hi­cle tire was that had it been 2 inches closer, this story would end there. Pick­ing it up and not re­ally sure what to do with it,

Phil McClusky walked out of Home Town Realty for a quick chat, and, he found a num­ber on the screen for "Dad".

Well, "Dad" didn't an­swer, but we left a mes­sage with the fe­male voice that an­swered (ob­vi­ously not Dad) tell- phone 403-823-2580 in­for­ma­tion@drumheller­

We saw 3 year old Harper Bell at the Co-op the other day in one of those 2 seater kids bas­kets with a steer­ing wheel etc. to keep them en­ter­tained while mom

Court­ney was shop­ping. We asked her if she thought that her dad Mike (6 ft. 3 - 230 lbs) could fit into the seat next to her so he could drive too and she said "Yes".

Now that we'd like to see.

Lots of early morn­ing jog­gers out th­ese days, but at pre-dawn, they are hard to see, and should wear some­thing re­flec­tive on their cloth­ing or shoes. A wise man once said, "If you want to lose weight, keep your mouth and the re­frig­er­a­tor closed."
