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.

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”.
