March is National Colorectal Cancer Screening Awareness month. Pincher Creek is fortunate in that we have Dr. John Rottger and Dr. Jared Van Bussel available in our area for screening at the Pincher Creek Associate Clinic.  Colorectal Cancer occurs in the rectum or large intestine. Dr. Van Bussel explained that some of the symptoms of this cancer include rectal bleeding of bright red blood or black tarry stools, weight loss, anemia, change in bowel habits.  "Those are the types of things to be looking for, something you have to present, no matter what your age, to your doctor. They can decide whether or not they need to explore and look for colon cancer as a cause for that."  He said that "most people would fit into an average risk category".

The Pincher Creek Sr. girls Dragons were able to cruise their way to a blowout victory over the Vulcan Hawks on Thursday February 26th, winning 82-24 in Pincher Creek.  The game was slightly delayed after the refs got the wrong information and started to head for Vulcan and didn't make it back in time for the game, so they had to find a few freelance refs so that they could get the game started. The Dragons outplayed the Hawks the entire game, but mostly in the first half.  They scored 47 in the first two quarters while holding the Hawks to only 8. The Vulcan Hawks had a scare halfway through the game when Adrienne Dietz collided with Samantha Cyr mid-court and had to go to the dressing room for repairs, but she came back later to finish off the game.
