Dalum Dis­patch

With any luck the first blast of win­ter which we had a week ago Mon­day will be the worst of the com­ing sea­son. The bro­ken trees, ter­ri­ble roads and mis­er­able con­di­tions for birds and an­i­mals were quite enough, thank you, and win­ter served up in smaller, gen­tler amounts would suit most peo­ple much bet­ter. One of the ben­e­fits of the mois­ture which came in the form of snow is that Wheat­land County has now can­celled the fire ban which had been in place through­out most of the sum­mer and fire per­mits may once again be is­sued.

I have been re­minded that the Dalum cen­ten­nial com­mit­tee is still in search of a rock suit­able to serve as a mon­u­ment mark­ing our one hun­dred years as a com­mu­nity. It is in­tended that a plaque will be mounted on a stone which may be some­thing in the range of two or three feet wide and a bit more than three feet tall with a fairly flat sur­face. The stone which is lo­cated by the flag­pole at the park is a good ex­am­ple of the de­sired shape al­though it need not be quite so large.

It is the sea­son for fall fairs and the many ven­dors who have pre­sented their prod­ucts at Dalum in the past will be do-

The Drumheller Titans foot­ball team trav­elled to Olds last Satur­day where they de­feated their hosts by an im­pres­sive 41 to 6 fi­nal score. Due to the gust­ing winds the of­fense was kept mainly to a ground at­tack which was ef­fec­tive in spite of plenty of pres­sure which the Olds de­fense ap­plied to the Drumheller quar­ter­back. The Titans had some touch­downs called back due to a va­ri­ety of in­frac­tions, a prob­lem which must be cor­rected when they play Can­more on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 13. The Fri­day game is the con­test re-sched­uled from an ear­lier date and is very im­por­tant in de­ter­min­ing the fi­nal stand­ings in the Big Sky Con­fer­ence.

There are four ladies ap­pear­ing on the birth­day list this week, best wishes go to Linda Chris­tensen (n. Merkel), Vir­ginia Redel (n. Vogstad), Sarah Beth Ras­mussen, and Glory Chris­tensen. A clos­ing thought from Lou Holtz whom I have quote in the past and who once made the ob­ser­va­tion that “When all is said and done, more is said than done”.
