Arrests made in counterfeiting ring

The Drumheller RCMP warns local businesses to be cognizant of American counterfeit bills this summer.
This comes after two individuals were arrested leaving the valley after it was alleged they passed a large sum of bills in just a couple short hours, and Drumheller is not the only community targeted by such a hit.
According to Staff Sergeant Art Hopkins, a ring has been discovered where similar counterfeit bills have turned up in communities including Lethbridge, Nanton, Claresholm, Fort Macleod, Red Cliff, and now Drumheller.

Local family to raise guide puppy

dog.jpgThere are big plans for a little lab dog named Toby.
Toby arrived in Drumheller on Monday, May 28, and while most dogs are not allowed in public places like restaurants and buses, Toby is an exception, because he is a guide dog in training and needs to get used to going wherever his owner does.
A working guide dog provides mobility and independence to people who are visually impaired.
The volunteers who have opened their hearts and homes to this eight week old puppy are Kim Mculley and her husband Stewart Wright, and will have the puppy for the next year.
“We’re just thrilled this puppy is going to be with us,” said McCulley.
The couple decided to adopt the puppy after having to put down their dog.
“It was unbearable losing our dog, we did not want to go through that pain again, so we thought raising a puppy for a good cause would be a perfect fit” said McCulley.
The main task for the volunteers that take in the dogs is to have them socialized, and make sure there is no rough housing, the puppies are not allowed to chew on anything.
