Morrin arena to close if no caretaker found

morrin-arena.jpg The Morrin Arena is in jeopardy of closing if a caretaker is not found soon, says Morrin Ag Society president Ryan Bitz.   
    This would put a number of youth programs at risk if there is no one found to run the facility this winter.
    “It’s getting to the point where it is nip and tuck whether we close the arena or not,” said Bitz. “It's not for a lack of usage.”

63 per cent say 'YES'

Monday, November 3, brought one of the most exciting voting results in Drumheller’s recent history.
In a substantial majority, 63.3 per cent of those who voted, said ‘YES’ to  the question “Are you in favour of constructing a Community Facility on the location that includes the lands known as John Anderson Park?”
Of 2,466 ballots cast on Monday, 1,561 said ‘YES’ and 905 said ‘NO’, a strong lead in favour of the community facility.
A large 42.9 per cent of all eligible voters in town cast their ballots, a decent number for any vote, but surprisingly low for how much attention has been given to the issue.
