"We found nothing wrong mechanically with the helicopter and we didn't find any other issues with the pilot. In this case it was simply a matter of the visual flight rules of flying," says Barry Holt, regional senior investigator with TSB. "He ran into cloud, flew over top of the cloud and attempting to come down through lost spatial awareness and unfortunately didn't slow the descent of the helicopter enough and crashed right through." The accident, ...

4 The Drayton Valley Western Review Review * Tuesday, * Tuesday, December December 4, 2012 4, 2012 news Courtney Whalen Western Review ANIMALS OUT AND ABOUT It's the time of year when motorists need to be extra vigilant for wildlife along the road. Between Nov. 21 and Nov. 28 the Drayton Valley RCMP received 21 reports of vehicles hitting animals. With food less accessible now that snow's on the ground and some animals in rutting season, more animals are making their way closer to area roadways. "Twenty-one in a week this time of year isn't unusual, but still, it's signi cant," said Drayton Valley RCMP Cpl. Marcia McDermott. VEHICLE VANDALISM Last week Drayton Valley RCMP received a report of 'senseless' vandalism when a vehicle was covered in spray paint. "There's no reason to it," said Cpl. Marcia McDermott. TAKE PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID THEFT The theft of trucks remains an issue in the area with three thefts reported in the past week, noted Cpl. Marcia McDermott last week. Vehicle owner ...

news Airport upgrades lighting Municipal facility once again open for night ights Courtney Whalen Western Review A drive down Range Road 73 at night leaves no doubt that the Drayton Valley Municipal Airport is once more fully operational as the airport's beacon illuminates the night sky. Close to $1 million worth of upgrades and improvements have been completed at the facility including the installation of new lighting, which means planes can once again land and take off during night hours. In the fall of 2011 the Town of Drayton Valley and Brazeau County were informed that the lighting system at the airport had failed. That meant once darkness fell, no planes could land or take off. Both municipalities agreed to commit approximately $300,000 to undertake upgrades and install new lighting. Funding of around another $300,000 came from the provincial government. The main goal of the work was to increase safety and bring the airport up to code, said Barry Yakimchuk, facilities manager wit ...

letters to the editor County resident offers another view on machinery trail ere is some controversy over whether Brazeau County should construct Twp. Rd. 474 between RR 44 and RR 45, as well as between RR 52 and RR 55. My family's beef farm is not directly a ected by the proposed construction, so I think I can provide an unbiased view on the issue. I believe that building a less expensive gravel road (machinery road) in this location would be a progressive move, and is perhaps long overdue. Safety is possibly the most important reason for developing more of Twp. Rd. 474. Opening up more of this road will allow current and future farmers to safely move machinery, cattle, and other loads between quarters in use. School bus routes may also be positively a ected. Hwy 616 has become so very busy, and taking some tra c o of it will make it safer for all users. e reality with agricultural land Jack Black is so darn cute! I recently came back from a holiday in Mexico with my boys. It was ni ...

10 The Drayton Valley Valley Western Western Review Review * Tuesday, * Tuesday, December December 4, 2012 4, 2012 community Around the water cooler... Welcome December! The countdown is really on until the big man in red arrives! (That's Santa for those of you who didn't catch that reference.) But we've still got a few weeks until then. First up this week we'd like to say a big happy birthday to Kimberly Sekura. She celebrates on Dec. 5, and rumour has it she and some friends are going to keep those celebrations going this weekend! Have a fabulous day Kimberly! Snowman Lane had its official light up last weekend so be sure to take a drive down 43 St. to check out the brightly lit neighbourhood. While you're out and about take a tour around some of the other neighbourhoods in town, there's lots of wonderfully decorated homes out there just waiting to be appreciated. The Drayton Valley Wildcats are getting into the giving spirit this weekend and they're getting a little bit of help from ...
