Price wins bronze at Canada Games


For the second time in as many weeks, more hardware from the Canada Games is coming home. This time, team volleyball player Andrea Price is wearing the bronze.
    Andrea, 18, saw the court for every game playing for team Alberta last week at the Canada games. Many local residents followed the coverage of the team’s quest for medals online and on selected TSN appearances. The team was 4-1 through the pool play, and won their quarterfinal match against Saskatchewan on Tuesday, August 27, three games to two. Price had eight kills in the match.
    On Friday, the team lost to Ontario in the semi finals in three straight games. This put them in the bronze medal match against Nova Scotia, where Team Alberta won three straight. Andrea led her team with 11 kills.
    “We were hoping for gold, but it went very good,” Andrea told The Mail.
    "They (Ontario) are a very good team and we actually came up against them in a Calgary tournament…it was a good match-up. In the end, they just executed their game place well.”
    Her mother Laurie, Andrea’s grandparents and uncle all went to the games to cheer on Andrea’s team at the games in Prince Edward Island.
    “It was awesome, Charlottetown was beautiful,” Laurie said, adding Andrea played very well.
    “I am always impressed with her.”
    Overall, Andrea said the games were a good experience. She said despite the great finish, she thought the team had potential to do even better.
    “It’s only one week, and everyone has to show up to play,” she said.
    Andrea is getting set to go back to college where she plays for the Mount Royal Cougars. This will be her second season with the young team that finished fourth in the province last season.
    “Last year we had a team of rookies, all but three. But this year we have some returning,” she said.
    Her experience in Prince Edward Island is one of the highlights of her career.
    “It’s something I’ll never forget,” she said

EnCana commits $500,000 to Badlands Community Facility


The Town of Drumheller is pleased to confirm that EnCana has pledged its support for the Badlands Community Facility.

    EnCana has announced that it will give $500,000.00 to this community project.
     “We value the importance of working with the residents, and organizations of the communities we work and live in,”     Luigi Vescarelli, Drumheller community relations advisor for EnCana said. “EnCana is committed to listening and responding to the needs of our neighbors and collectively everyone does what it takes to make Drumheller an excellent place to live. We believe this new centre will become an important cornerstone for the community which will add to the vibrancy that Drumheller enjoys today.”
    Drumheller Mayor Bryce Nimmo commended EnCana regarding the work they do in the community, and this recent contribution to this facility.
    “Drumheller is privileged to have many outstanding community minded companies in our Town and as always EnCana shows true community leadership in business and community ventures. On behalf of Town Council and the residents of Drumheller we express our thanks,” said Nimmo.
    Badlands Community Facility co-chair Tony Lacher is very happy with the involvement of EnCana in the Badlands Community Facility.
    “Our committee started out as a grassroots organization of eager citizens. We have seen this project grow from a few people to a community wide initiative. It is truly gratifying when a company such as EnCana supports our project at such a high level,” said Lacher.
    The construction of the Badlands Community Facility is progressing on schedule. The architect firm of Graham Edmunds Cartier is currently working on the design and the preliminary site work will begin in late 2009.
    The construction will start with a field house, running track, fitness centre, meeting facilities and a new public library followed by an arena and curling rink as funding becomes available.
