also undergo some changes. The municipality will form a committee to evaluate the sign bylaw

and make suggestions for changes. Municipal planner Ian McIntosh said the committee will consider how

many signs are allowed at a business, how big they may be and how they may be placed. In recent years, the municipality has had numerous requests for variances to the sign bylaw. The most recent and most noticeable request came in summer when Bad Robot asked for and received a variance to allow a window sign more than twice as large as is allowed under the existing sign bylaw. “When you’re getting lots of variance applications, it’s an indication a bylaw needs work,” McIntosh said. While Summerland’s Old English theme has also come under review recently, McIntosh said the sign bylaw is a separate matter. The bylaw will stipulate how many signs are allowed, how big they may be and how tall they can stand. The committee will consist of members of the business, agricultural and winery sectors. Also on the committee will be members of the community at large and a council representative and an alternate. “It’s making sure the bylaw we have is up to date,” added Mayor Janice Perrino. The committee would remain in place until the bylaw has been evaluated.

Charging stations receive funding by John Arendt Summerland will soon have three charging stations for electric vehicles now that provincial funding has been received. The funding, announced last week, is for $12,000. This will pay for three Level 2 charge stations. The stations are in

addition to two Level 1 stations which have been set up at Summerland Waterfront Resort. A Level 1 station delivers 120 volts of power and is able to charge an electric vehicle in more than eight hours. A Level 2 station delivers 240 volts and can charge the same vehicle in around half the time.

At present, there are some hybrid vehicles in the area but electric vehicles are not common. Julie McGuire, climate action coordinator for Summerland, said electric vehicles are expected to catch on when the charging stations are in place and when electric vehicles become more readily available.

Vehicle dealers need special certification in order to sell electric vehicles. At present, there are 19 certified dealers in the Lower Mainland. She added that as fuel prices continue to rise, the appeal of electric vehicles will become more noticeable. “If gas prices start to jump, I think we’re going

to see a lot of alternatives,” she said. Mayor Janice Perrino said the stations will make Summerland an important stop for motorists with electric vehicles. At present, electric vehicles are seldom used for highway trips of any length since the charging stations are scarce.

A public service message from Bell, Jacoe & Company

The Drug War Many people will read the above caption and assume this column is about the fight against illegal drugs. Not so, because there is another drug war raging in our country. One that might have an even more far reaching effect than illegal drugs. It is the fight between the pharmaceutical drug manufacturers who spend millions of dollars researching, testing and developing new "Brand Name" drugs and the generic drug manufacturers who want the "Brand Name" monopolies that our federal patent legislation allows to be dismantled. Both sides have very convincing arguments. On the one hand, the research to develop a new drug is incredibly expensive and can only be recovered in the years after its production. If that cost recovery was threatened by cheaper substitutes, then, one has to ask, would any research ever be done? On the other hand, the generic manufacturers argue that the public has a right to inexpensive medicine and therefore the benefit to the public good outweighs any profit motive. The "legal" drug battle will rage on in the Legislatures and Courts of the Land for at least as long as its "illegal" cousin.

our pick

Seeing signs The signs have changed in downtown Summerland. Earlier this year, the owners of Bad Robot on Main Street asked for and received a variance to allow a window sign more than twice as large as is allowed under the existing municipal sign bylaws. Whatever one thinks of the resulting sign, this request, more than others in recent years, showed a need to revisit Summerland’s sign bylaw. Only a few years ago, so large a sign would have been unthinkable in Summerland’s downtown area. Design and signage downtown were taken very seriously. Over the years, attitudes have changed. A request to approve a slightly larger sign than the bylaw allows is a minor matter. Asking for something more than twice as large is much more significant. While some may argue that requests for sign bylaw variances simply prove businesses are facing unnecessary regulations, some boundaries will still be necessary. A bylaw is needed in order to set out the sizes and appearance of signs in the community, whether these are window signs, signs above businesses, sandwich boards and other temporary signs or something else. To create the new sign regulations, the municipality will form a committee to review the bylaw. It is important to have business voices present on this committee, since those in business are directly affected by any decisions governing signs. It is equally important to have some committee members who have backgrounds in art or design, so the result is something aesthetically pleasing. Individually, a sign will advertise a specific business. Seen together, an assortment of signs will say as much about the community as about the business. In the end, the bylaw is as much about promoting Summerland as a whole as it is about promoting any individual businesses.

The organizers of the Terry Fox Run deserve credit for their hard work. The annual run was held on Sunday. It is designed to raise awareness of cancer and raise money to help combat the disease. Almost every family has been affected by cancer at some point. For this reason alone, initiatives like the Terry Fox Run are important.

Stakes go up in B.C. gas gamble VICTORIA – Mike de Jong’s debut as B.C. finance minister was a grim one. The first financial update for this election year projects a $1.4 billion decline in natural resource revenues from Kevin Falcon’s one and only budget in February. Most of that is from declining natural gas revenues in the next three years. And it’s not just the price of gas Tom Fletcher that’s lower than the finance ministry’s array of private sector experts had forecast. The volume of B.C. gas sold is down as well, as abundant new sources of shale gas come on-stream in the U.S. As with oil, that’s currently the only market Canada has. And it wasn’t long ago that the energy ministry was trumpeting its monthly totals for “bonus bids” paid by gas companies for drilling rights in northeastern B.C. That gold rush has wound down as shale deposits are staked and the price falls. De Jong’s response shows how serious this problem is for any B.C. government. He inherits Falcon’s political commitment to present a balanced budget next spring. How he will do that, and be believed in a heated post-HST election campaign, remains a mystery. De Jong announced a hiring freeze for government staff, and a management salary freeze

across health care, universities and Crown corporations as well as government operations. He hinted at an even harder line with unions, as the government’s largest employee group continued selective strike action. This, and the familiar vow to rein in travel and other discretionary spending, won’t come close to replacing the lost gas revenues. Asset sales, which Falcon came up with in a desperate effort to dig the govern-

LNG export facility on the Douglas Channel near Kitimat. Two proposals in that area have already received federal export permits and financing from global energy players, including Chinese, Japanese and Korean companies. One of the bills jammed through by the B.C. Liberals in the hectic legislative session this spring was to do away with another of those federalprovincial overlaps that make industrial development so slow

The one glimmer of hope in what de Jong called the “ugly” resource revenue picture is that natural gas revenues don’t have much farther to fall. ment out of its huge sales tax hole, won’t show up on the books until next year, if they go ahead at all. Raising taxes or fees? Forget it. It’s either cut programs or run another deficit. The one glimmer of hope in what de Jong called the “ugly” resource revenue picture is that natural gas revenues don’t have much farther to fall. That project took two important steps forward last week. Spectra Energy and British multinational BG Group unveiled plans for a third major pipeline to bring northeast gas to the coast, this one to a site near Prince Rupert proposed for a liquefied natural gas facility. And on Friday, the Haisla Nation and the B.C. government announced a land use agreement to develop another

and difficult. Ottawa has sole authority to regulate reserve lands, but agreed to delegate that to B.C. and the Haisla, allowing them to pioneer the latest agreement. This is a major breakthrough, not just in the industrial development of northern B.C. but in dismantling the century-old logjam of aboriginal resource claims. At the centre of Premier Christy Clark’s much-promoted jobs plan is the target of having three LNG export terminals and associated pipelines in production by 2020. That now looks like a more realistic target. But the jobs and revenues won’t arrive in time to save the B.C. Liberals from their current predicament. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews. com

bad apples We are disgusted with the vandals who have destroyed trees in Memorial Park. While the damage may be no worse than in previous years, the cost of replacing a broken tree represents money which could be better spent elsewhere. The staff time represents time which could have been used for something which would enhance the community. We deserve better than to have our parks ravaged by a few irresponsible people.

Beautification efforts are needed Dear Editor: After walking my dog this beautiful September morning

I felt compelled to write a letter. As I walked along the waterfront, I felt

very grateful for the path along the waterfront, the dog park, the landscape, piers,

beaches and parks. Early fall is such a special time in Summerland. It’s quiet,

and still such great weather. Everything looks pretty with the trees


and flowers downtown, purple peonies and butterfly bush on the road medians. The banners that the Community Arts Council makes are so colourful and fun, they add a lot to the streets of Summerland, they are even at the yacht club and on the waterfront. Now if only there was something we could do about those frontages who continue to look shabby and uncared for. Too bad that the tourists at the Summerland Waterfront Resort (which is gorgeous) have to look at run down, dirty, slum like buildings across

the street. Too bad there isn’t something to be done with absentee landlords who simply use our fair town as a business tax write off where they don’t care if their unkept buildings are rented or not. Some of the downtown businesses have newly painted frontages, and what a huge difference that makes to Main Street. I would love for Summerland to be the prettiest and proudest little town in the Valley. It’s almost there, just needs some TLC. Marcia Stacy Summerland

In the 1920s, bicycles were pretty much multi-purpose and riding gear was a little different than it is today. This fellow, stopped for a break on the road from Summerland to Peachland, would probably have appreciated the suspension and other comforts of modern mountain bikes. On Sept. 23, mountain bikers of all ages will be heading for the hills in Summerland for the 2012 Test of Humanity Mountain Bike Race. Proceeds from the race will support Canadian Humanitarian and its projects in Ethiopia as well as the South Okanagan Food Bank. Go to and click the link for more information.

Critical of emergency information Dear Editor: I hope the criticism I have for the Emergency Preparedness Centre held at the Curling Arena in Summerland will help the person responsible for the notification to the public and media outlets become more efficient. Before venturing out to do some shopping I checked Shaw TV New Board. Yes, I read two

locations for emergency centres, in West Kelowna and Summerland. As a community citizen, I visited the Summerland Dollar Store on Main Street to buy some bits and pieces suitable for elementary aged children. (Remember their school in Peachland was closed). The proprietor of the store, on learning

I was donating these items to the children of the Peachland fire evacuation, offered financial help. They generously donated free a few things and charged me a fraction of the cost. Thank you. I took these items to the curling arena in Summerland only to be met by a sign on the door informing people to go to West Kelowna.

The office was closed. No other information. I was disappointed and confused. The TV said it was open. Later, I heard through the grapevine that the Legion always helps out in times like this, so I took my box of goodies to the Summerland Legion. They gratefully accepted

our gifts and said they would send them on to the Peachland Legion. When I got home, I put Shaw TV Channel 11 on only to be met with the same information bulletin which said there are two emergency centres open for Peachland fire evacuees, in West Kelowna and Summerland. L. Price Summerland

Upped speed limit increases hazards Dear Editor: To the Hon. Mary Polak B.C. Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure We would like to bring to your attention a very danger-

ous situation that has resulted from an i n c o m p re h e n s i b l e change in the allowed speed limit near our home. The location is Highway 97 just north of Summerland.

Some time early this year a decision seems to have been made to increase the speed limit to 100 kilometres an hour less that 100 metres before what is becoming an increasingly

Scholarship recipient Members of the Summerland Kiwanis Club presented Sam Austin with a scholarship last week. From left are Kiwanis members Evelynn Hill and Glenda Smith, Austin and Kiwanis president Robert Beers.

Noise of shooting continues into night Dear Editor: I was a guest at the Wildhorse Mountain Ranch, next door to the Summerland Sportsman’s Association Rifle Range from Aug. 18 to 23. The reason I came here was to have a restful vacation after a hard year of work. I had just spent a week in Naramata and was due to attend a conference in Kamloops the following week, so I had a few days to pass between towns and chose the Wildhorse Mountain Ranch to spend my time. I envisioned that the sounds of horses neighing, birds singing and the wind whistling through the pine trees would lull me into a relaxing time. Instead, I was shocked to hear rifle shots coming from the rifle range next door, all day long. Then I was horrified to hear them continue

after dusk on Sunday, Aug. 19. The owners of Wildhorse Mountain Ranch, Brigitte and Jochen Schlorff, told me according to the lease, there must not be any shooting after dusk or before dawn. On Sunday evening, the shooting went on past 9 p.m. I know that the sun went down a good hour before that time. It seems that shooting was allowed to go beyond the time limits. The owner drove over to the shooting range to talk with the individuals but the shooting only stopped while he was on the property and began again when he drove off. It was past sunset, long past dusk. This type of illegal behaviour does nothing to further tourism in Summerland specifically and in B.C. generally. The owners and

staff of the Wildhorse Mountain Ranch work hard to make sure their guests are comfortable during their stay. I don’t know how many tourists if any use the Summerland Rifle Range. I was also concerned about the safety aspect of shooting after dusk. It seems improbable that the shooters could even see their targets in the dark. As a good neighbour, this should not be encouraged or tolerated. As a holder of the lease with the Ministry of Forests on Crown land, this is against the lease agreement. I would like to return to Wildhorse Mountain Ranch as a guest, but I would not like to be subjected to a repeat performance of constant shooting, especially after dark. Evelyn von Almassy Queen Charlotte, B.C.

Thanks for kindness Dear Editor: I would like to say thank you to the Summerland Ambulance for the quick response when my husband Les had his heart attack. Thank you to the ambulance, police

and coroner for attending to my husband’s needs when he passed away. Also for your kind words of condolence. A thank you to the Providence Funeral Home. I would also thank

all our friends of Summerland for their kind words of condolences, cards and calls. It is a comfort to me to have so many good friends. Shirley Dean Summerland

busy intersection, i.e., the Matsu DriveBentley Road cross streets. On the Matsu Drive side (lakeside of the highway), it is the only exit for a popular winery and bistro (with tourist cars and buses and delivery and service vehicles); several busy orchards (with accompanying large numbers of seasonal workers and farm vehicles); as well as those of us who live in the area. On the Bentley Road side it serves as the main northern exit for the Bentley Road Industrial area with their associated trucks and delivery vehicles. So, for traffic flowing north on the highway, through Summerland, the allowed

speed is 60 kilometres an hour, then it increases to 80 kilometres an hour, then just around the bend past Sumac Ridge it is 100 kilometres an hour. Many drivers accelerate rapidly, not expecting a busy intersection less than 100 metres away. For those entering the highway from Matsu Drive or turning left out of Bentley Road, it has become very difficult and dangerous at times, with large trucks and other vehicles bearing down at 100 kilometres an hour. The fact that immediately preceding the intersection, northbound highway traffic is suddenly accelerating from 80 to 100 confounds the problem by making speed judgement for the

highway crosser confusing. Surely it would make more sense to post the 100Km/hr after the intersection. And in fact it would make even more sense to leave the increase until after the first big bend north of the intersection. As it is now, the large trucks just get up to speed only to apply the extremely noisy engine brakes to negotiate the bend. It is somewhat ironic that when we moved here in the late seventies, although much less busy, the intersection was very dangerous because of the blind exit occluded by the cliff. After a letter campaign and the first stage of fourlaning and removal of part of the cliff, it was much safer, and

now it has reverted to a similar level of danger as three decades ago. We have seen and been part of several near misses at this increasingly dangerous intersection and think it could be alleviated if the speed limit was 80 kilometres an hour until after the next bend. To reiterate, the salient point is that northbound highway drivers are being prompted to accelerate into an intersection and a major curve rather than decelerate or maintain steady speed, the opposite of what proper driving procedure would require. Thank you for your attention. Robert Kripps and Elizabeth Harrison Summerland

Thursday, September 20, 2012 Summerland Review

Memorial Park trees vandalized Trees at the edge of Memorial Park near Kelly Avenue have been damaged by vandals. Paul Richard, who runs the Summerland Farmers’ Market on Tuesdays, said he first noticed a damaged tree in the park in the end of April or early in May. Municipal crews were quickly called and the tree was bound and braced. Last week, it was damaged again. Richard wonders if

the tree will survive the damage. Another tree, near the children’s playground equipment, was so badly damaged it was removed. He said the tree damage was not as serious an issue last year, although flowers were damaged at the flower beds. “To me, it’s just senseless,” Richard said. He hopes those responsible will consider the costs of repairing their dam-

ages or replacing trees. Municipal recreation director Dale MacDonald said the damage this year is not any worse than in the past years. Mayor Janice Perrino said the damage is concerning. “What a shame that people find this kind of activity entertaining,” she said. “It’s really costly to our community. They do a lot of damage and they don’t pay for it.”

Artists to open studios A group of 17 Summerland artists will open their spaces to the public during an annual studio tour next month. The tour, on Oct. 6 and 7, will feature a variety of art including painting, wood

turning, fabric, jewellery, metal and more. “There are some great artists in this town,” said Marcia Stacy. She is organizing the tour with her husband Ron Stacy. This is the second

year the artists have organized the studio tour, although in previous years a tour was arranged through the Summerland Art Gallery. The tour will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

a geotechnical firm will look at the site to determine a way to shore up the banks in the area to prevent another landslide from destroying the trail. The landslide occurred after two storms in the area. ”Right now we don’t have the ability to rebuild the trail,” MacDonald said. The municipality will apply for a government grant to repair the trail. The grant application deadline is the end of October. MacDonald said the trail, built in 2005 for Summerland’s centennial year in 2006, will be closed until some time next year. Other walking trails in Summerland are unaffected.

Many contributed to historic mural The mural on the wall of the IOOF

Hall on Main Street came about with

assistance from several individuals and

organizations. A dedication of the

mural and the garden area at the hall was

held last week. The mural was painted last summer and early fall by Larry Hunter. The cost of the project was $10,000. “All I had to do was find 100 friends with $100 each,” said Sharon Stone of the Faith Rebekah Lodge who organized the mural. She said donations ranged from $10 to $2,500. The Summerland Rebekahs and the provincial Grand Lodge of the Odd Fellows jointly own the hall and contributed

$2,500 for the mural project. The garden area behind the hall was created in 2005, in preparation for Summerland’s centennial in 2006. Donna Lane provided landscape design for the garden and Gil Inglis, whose mother was an active Rebekah member, donated his time and equipment to bring the rocks and create the garden space. In addition, the Community Cultural Development Committee was active in both projects.

Production up for winning local winery The winery which produced the top rated wine at the Summerland Wine Fair earlier this month is also producing more wine than ever before. Judi Skinner, sales and marketing manager at Dirty Laundry Vineyard, said the vineyard has been expanding. Last year, it produced 13,500 cases of wine; this year that figure is expected to reach 16,500 cases. In 2006, the vineyard produced just 2,000 cases. The winery recently purchased six new tanks from Italy and a Velvet 80 wine press, the largest in the area. “This time, I attribute our success to better, more sophisticated equipment,” Skinner said. While the quantity has been increasing, she said the vineyard continues to focus on producing high qual-

ity wines. “Even though we’re getting bigger, we want to make sure the quality’s good,” she said. At the Second Annual Remax Orchard Country Wine Fair earlier this month, the winery won gold and best in show for its 2011 KaySyrah, a 2011 blended red. The winery also won gold for its 2011 Hush Blush Rose and silver for its 2011 Merlot, a single varietal red. “To win best of show for a new red, that’s huge for us,” Skinner said. The judges at the Summerland wine fair are among the most knowledgeable in the business. Skinner said the awards are impressive since the vineyard is now receiving accolades for its red wines. In the past, it has won for its white wines.

The Rocket

The Summerland Film Club presents The Rocket at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 26 at the Rosedale Room of the Summerland Legion. The Rocket is not only about a great athlete, but includes a moral, if you will, as well. Until Le Canadiens came on the scene in

hockey as formidable winners, a lot of folks in Canada still viewed Quebecois as a sort of backward people, living in a backward province. The Rocket not only showed them that they were winners, but he also spent a considerable amount of time and effort in “educating” the rest of Canada about his people.

Carla McLeod, Special to the Summerland Review

By all counts the Terry Fox Run on the weekend was a success. A record 212 walked and ran the course. A total of $7,668 was raised, also a record. The event had wide business and civic support. Here are some of the participants, which included pets.

Dance specialist on skate club staff A dance specialist has been added to the coaching staff at Summerland Skating Club. Patrick O’Brien, who has been coaching since 1979, has joined long-time coach Dale Wood this

year. The two have known each other for many years. In 1962, when O’Brien was skating with the Glengarry Skating Club in Penticton, he skated pairs with Wood’s sister.

He continued with figure skating and has held coaching roles throughout British Columbia. He said he and Wood will work together in coaching the skaters this year. “A lot of figure

skating is going to team teaching,” he said. O’Brien will work with a power skating class, once a week for 45 minutes, to give young hockey players the skills they need for their sport. “They’ve got to

be able to skate to control the puck,” he said. He will also work with dance students in the club. Last year, four of his students passed their gold dance certification. O’Brien believes

Summerland Review Thursday, September 20, 2012






S 15

The Summerland family experience Moving to Summerland three years ago via Calgary from Hamilton, Ont., was a leap of faith into a new culture. Most people think of culture shock when we hear stories of people moving from small towns to big cities with populations of millions of people, dealing with rush hours, eight-lane mega highways, lineups for everything and often the cold

shoulders of fellow residents. When I talk to friends and family in Toronto, Vancouver or Calgary I brag about the ease of daily life. I let them know that I can walk to work in 12 minutes and drive to work in two minutes. I only have to go through one four-way stop sign on my route, and people often wave each other on to let them go first. I

explain that in a threeblock radius from my office, I can work out, grocery shop, go to my bank, to the post office, drug store, get a nice treat at a coffee shop and hit a cool boutique for someone’s birthday present. When we drive to a friend’s house in town, it’s not going to be more than a five-minute drive any way you cut it. We have a clean lake and at least four local

Terry Fox Run


Joanne Malar beaches to enjoy right in town. Big town dwellers

listen with interest to all these scenarios and often sigh at the thought of some of our small town simplicities which I see as luxuries. There is always a balance between good and not so good in any location. As newcomers, we had to get used to the possibility of forest fires when we bought our first fire insurance for our home and had to face my

fear of bears understanding that bears do live around town. Although our job market does not match bigger cities, I find a sense of happiness much higher than people’s relative income here. One of the things we don’t have to sacrifice in our town is the quality and availability of sporting activities. With summer being over, families now switch over to sports and activities to take us through the fall, winter and spring months. Thankfully, our small town has much to offer. The ORCA swim team just completed our registrations for the Fall season startup. We are at capacity for our development groups. As my oldest son is now 5 his world of sports has started to open up. We don’t want to have him involved in too many sports and activities, but are excited to let him explore his interests. He played soccer in the spring, he wants to play hockey and has joined the ORCA swim team. The great thing about Summerland is that we have all the opportunities for the arts and sports

in town. Simply check out a recreation guide or local websites. Upon moving here, I was worried that opportunities for sports would be limited, but I have been so happy with our quality programs available in our community. Carting your kids off to activities and school can be a challenge in and of itself, and I appreciate the things in our town that are simple. I really appreciate the friendly environment in Summerland with very experienced professionals and coaches leading our sports teams. Sports and arts are not something we have to give up in order to live in a smaller town! I predict there will be an ongoing trend of families moving here from big cities both to the west and east of us looking to enjoy the conveniences of smaller town life along with affordability, safety, recreation and quality of life. Joanne Malar is a three-time Olympic Swimmer, Summerland Parks and Recreation Programmer and Orca CoHead Coach. This will be her last article for this year before she goes on maternity leave with her third baby.

Carla McLeod, Special to the Summerland Review

People of all ages took part in the annual Terry Fox Run in Summerland. The event raised money for the Terry Fox Foundation, and raised awareness of cancer. (See story on Page 3).

Orca swimming club has wait list The Summerland Orca Swim Club has more participants than ever before this year. Last week, 27 new swimmers were registered for the swim club, bringing this year’s total to more than 90. “All of our development groups are at capacity,” said swim club coach Joanne Malar. She said the higher regis-

tration this year is in part a result of the 2012 Olympics which were held in London earlier this year. “After the Olympics, there’s always a boom in swim members,” she said. “I think everyone gets excited about sports.” Because of the higher number of swimmers, the club now has waiting lists.

The youngest swimmers are five years old and the oldest are 17. Although the programs are full, Malar encourages parents of young swimmers to register their children, in case a position becomes available. The Orca Swim Club has had some strong swimmers in the past and Malar

expects two of the swimmers to excel this year. Haley Berrisford, who turned 12 recently, won four medals at the provincials, competing as an 11-year-old. Jamie Ferguson, a Grade 10 student who had been in Orca in the past, has returned to the swim club. Malar said Ferguson is close to

qualifying nationally, with a time about one second off in the 50-metre backstroke. For this season, Malar will be away from coaching on maternity leave but her husband, Delano Duchek, will coach the team. She added that there is a need for more qualified coaches to work with the club.

The program is currently seeking volunteer tutors for the fall and winter session. “We have an amazing team of dedicated volunteer tutors,” said Joan Chambers, district coordinator for the program. “We have retired teachers and education specialists, empty nesters who simply love reading, stay-home parents, shift-workers, and seasonal employees.” “We have some volunteers who are here for the winter, and that works very well as we have others who go away for a few weeks.” Each tutor reads oneto-one with the same three students for half an hour each, one day a week for 12 weeks. “The students participate at least three times a week, so they’ll be reading with up to four differ-
