Locomotive history

John Arendt Summerland Review

The Kettle Valley Steam Railway’s 100-year-old locomotive pulled into the station on Saturday for a special heritage celebration. The locomotive, constructed in 1912, was one of the most powerful locomotives in Canada when it was built.

The Summerland Legion will have a reduction in its taxes next year as municipal council granted an exemption on the non-profit portion of the Legion’s tax bill. The taxes from the commercial portion of the Legion remain unchanged. This works out to a 35 per cent reduction in the total taxes the Legion must pay. Coun. Bruce Hallquist said this is the only change to permissive tax exemptions for the coming year. Mayor Janice Perrino said permissive tax exemptions are granted if non-profit organizations apply and prove a need. “We felt there was a need,” Hallquist added. The Legion has been struggling financially in recent years, he said. The money from the exemption will go to the operations of the Legion. Hallquist said exemptions are not granted permanently and in the early 2000s, many exemptions were phased out. While the Legion receives lottery funding, Coun. Robert Hacking said that money is not used to fund its normal operations. Coun. Martin Van Alphen said the tax exemption is necessary. “We need to assist them,” he said. “They do so much for our community. The bylaws to grant general statutory tax exemptions and specific tax exemptions for 2013 were given first three readings. They were passed unanimously. Coun. Lloyd Christopherson was not present for the resolution.

Cannery building changes hands Development proposal expected for lakefront site by John Arendt A bid has been accepted on a former cannery building on Lakeshore Drive, reopening the possibility of a development there. Municipal planner Ian

McIntosh said a successful bid has been received by the receiver. He added that he expects a new development proposal to come forward as a result. Before the building went into receivership, the previous owner had proposed using the site for two eight-storey residential buildings, over a commercial and parking

building. The zoning to allow this development was at third reading but had not been completed. The land is in the CT-1 Tourist Commercial zone. While details for the site are not yet available, McIntosh said there is a plan in the works. “They do have a concept in general terms,” he said. “We have to see

something more specific.” While the new concept will include commercial and residential spaces, McIntosh does not expect it would conflict with the Wharton Street project. “From what I understand, they will not be competing with each other. They will be complimentary,” he said.

Mayor Janice Perrino said she is pleased to see the change in ownership. “We’re very excited about looking at the redevelopment of this property,” she said. She said the next proposal for the site will be on a smaller scale, but will contain a mix of commercial and residential spaces.

Enrolment figures remain steady by John Arendt There are not quite as many students enrolled in the Okanagan Skaha School District as last year,

but in Summerland, the total enrolment numbers were virtually unchanged. Wendy Hyer, superintendent of the school district,

said there were 6,205 students registered throughout the school district this year, down from 6,255 a year ago. These figures

include all Kindergarten to Grade 12 students and those in distance education and the ConnectEd program. They do not reflect the number of


to 309. At the elementary schools, the enrolment numbers rose slightly. Giant’s Head Elementary School’s enrolment rose from 322 to 323 and at Trout Creek Elementary School, the enrolment rose from 201 to 213. Hyer said the funding for the school district is not tied to enrolment numbers this year, although funding has declined. This year, the school district received 98.5

per cent of the funding it received last year, and next year the funding will drop again, by the same amount. The drop this year has resulted in a $1.7 million reduction in funding for the school district. There are no planned school amalgamations or closures to cope with the funding reduction. “We wouldn’t have the space to take the kids from one school and put them into other schools,” Hyer said.



full-time equivalent students. Those figures will not be compiled until the end of October. “Our enrolment is lower than it was last year,” Hyer said. “There’s a slight decline. In Summerland, there are 1,316 students this year, up from 1,314 last year. At Summerland Secondary School, the enrolment dropped from 475 last year to 471 this year. Summerland Middle School also saw a slight drop from 316

Structure of families changing Families and households are changing in Summerland and across Canada, according to the latest release of data from the 2011 census. Statistics Canada provided information on families, households and marital

status, as well as structural type of dwelling and collectives. Throughout Canada, married-couple families were the predominant family structure in 2011, at 67 per cent. For the first time,

POLICE REPORT Taken to jail Police received a report of an intoxicated man on Rosedale Avenue near Quinpool Road the afternoon of Oct. 3. They picked up a 62-year-old Summerland man and jailed him in Penticton until he was sober.

Intoxicated youth A highly intoxicated young man was taken to Penticton cells after he was found by a Summerland RCMP patrol along Highway 97 at Arkell Road Oct. 6. The 17-year-old is from Cawston.

there were more common-law-couple families in 2011, 16.7 per cent, than loneparent families, 16.3 per cent. The 2011 Census of Population counted 64,575 same-sex couples. In 2011, 32.5 per cent of same-sex couples were married, nearly double the 2006 share. The 2006 to 2011 period marks the first five-year period during which same-sex couples could legally marry, following the legalization of samesex marriage for all of Canada in July, 2005. Stepfamilies were counted for the first time in the 2011 Census of Population, providing a more detailed portrait of Canadian families. There were 464,335 stepfamilies in 2011, or 12.6 per cent of couple families with children aged 24 and under. For the first time, there were more oneperson households in 2011, 27.6 per cent,

Steady growth of the local French immersion program has prompted school officials to once again explore the idea of opening it up to younger students. Okanagan Skaha School District trustees last week voted to begin a feasibility study of an early French immersion program that would accept students in kindergarten or Grade 1. At present, only a late-entry model is available that takes kids in Grade 6. About 10 per cent of the district’s total students are in the French immersion stream at four schools in Summerland and Penticton, according to figures provided to the board.

The BC registration system is different from Ontario's and is not as susceptible to real estate fraud, however, it can and does happen here. Lender's in Ontario such as the Chartered Banks have been required that lawyers have mortgage clients produce two types of identification when signing up a mortgage for some time now. This has now become Canada-wide.

Cutting expenses At first glance, a recommendation from the municipality’s finance committee makes a lot of sense in its simplicity. The recommendation calls for department heads to find a five per cent reduction in their operating budgets for next year. If all expenses could be cut by five per cent, the municipality would be able to add to its reserves without raising taxes. A slight tax reduction might even be possible. The difficulties show themselves if such a budget-cutting recommendation is put into practice. It becomes much more challenging than it first appears. For some departments, the bulk of the budget is staffing costs. Cutting the budget must then result in cutting staff, which in turn means less work can be done. Other departments have costs associated with the facilities or equipment — costs which cannot be reduced. Governments in Canada at all levels, particularly municipal governments, are highly scrutinized by the public. Since governments function using tax dollars, taxpayers will speak out if the money is being spent inefficiently. If there are areas where cuts could and should be made, these areas will not go unnoticed. Furthermore, the 2008 Helios report, conducted for the municipality, examined municipal operations and did not find wasteful or inefficient spending. This does not mean there is no room for improvement. However, the best way to make municipal operations more efficient is through a careful study of the various departmental operations. Financial reviews are important, whether for an individual, a business or a government. A blanket decision to cut expenses by a set percentage may not be the wisest response.

bad Skills training ‘our mission,’ Dix says apples VICTORIA – My column on skills training a couple of weeks ago gave short shrift to the NDP position: tax the banks and hand out grants for women’s studies, sociology and other worthless pursuits, while skilled jobs go begging. That’s a pretty crude caricature, so I sat down with NDP leader Adrian Dix in his legislature office last week Tom Fletcher to get a better sense of his thinking on the subject. Dix has been devoting a lot of time lately to skills training, in trades particularly. He meets frequently with business people now, and his recent speeches emphasize that every one of them talks about the growing shortage of skilled employees. Dix credits Premier Christy Clark and jobs minister Pat Bell with making some good moves recently, announcing equipment upgrades for vocational programs around the province. He says it’s because the NDP have been “pounding away at them for eight months” about freezing advanced education spending in their March budget. Dix calls that a crucial mistake and predicts the government will reverse it soon. “So I think, if we’re going to have a mission for four years as a government, if we’re elected, this is the mission: to start to address the skills shortage,” he told me. In his speech to the recent

municipal convention, and again at an NDP provincial council meeting, Dix zeroed in on B.C.’s apprenticeship system. Since the B.C. Liberals took it from trade unions and set up a Crown corporation called the Industry Training Authority in 2004, the completion rate for apprentices has fallen to 37 per cent, he said. Dix assured me he isn’t proposing to “blow up” the ITA, or hand control back to unions. They will have “a voice,” along with business.

tem of the entire construction industry,” Hochstein said. “So multi-skilling, multi-tasking, organizing the work in the most efficient way is blown out of the water, and it’s stuck in the old craft system of training.” The marketplace has spoken on that restrictive system, he said, and unionized construction is down to about five per cent of the market, based on payroll. Hochstein said the NDP talks a great game about getting more young people into trades. But when unions have the

Dix has been devoting a lot of time lately to skills training, in trades particularly. Speaking to the NDP executive, Dix referred to Phil Hochstein, president of the nonunion Independent Contractors and Businesses’ Association, as the symbol of trades training decline. Not surprisingly, Hochstein has a different take. The 37 per cent figure is misleading, Hochstein said, because under the ITA there are currently 32,000 apprentices in the system, twice as many as when it was union controlled. Many drop out in the first year, and Alberta claims a better completion rate because they don’t start counting until the second year. And when Dix touts Alberta’s “mandatory” trade system, Hochstein said he means returning to a system where all work is restricted to journeymen or registered apprentices of that trade. “What it does is impose union jurisdiction on the training sys-

upper hand, they will always favour seniority. A quota of two apprentices per journeyman means another one can’t be hired. Dix agreed with me that the public school system has overemphasized university, to the detriment of not just industrial trades but lab techs, chefs and other skilled workers that are in short supply. As B.C. Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair recently noted, tradesmen themselves often don’t encourage their kids, because they’ve been told all their lives that they are “tool monkeys” in a dead-end job. And would NDP student grants be targeted to need? Dix’s answer was a definite maybe. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews. com.

Nearly half of the wildfires in B.C. over the last 10 years could have been prevented. The fires that did not have to happen were the 41 per cent caused by people. Lightning accounted for the other 59 percent. The Kamloops fire district, which includes Summerland, has seen 445 fires burning 1,537 acres so far this year. The fire hazard continues in this dry weather.

Landfill trip a costly experience Dear Editor: On Oct. 1, I had occasion to go to the landfill with some waste from my household. As with every time I visit the landfill, as we entered the site I commented,

“I hate coming here as I always get a flat tire.” We weighed in at the scale and were informed that the small love seat we were disposing of would have a bulk disposal charge, min-

imum of $10. Needless to say, I was not impressed when the entire bill came to $21.15 for only 235 kilograms. We then continued on our way into town and at the first place we stopped

at to pick up some things. Yup, there is the flat tire. Next stop was the tire shop to have it repaired, at a cost to me of $24.99. Total cost to dispose of 235 kg of waste now is up to $46.14.

A minimum charge on “bulky waste” only serves to make residents think of other ways to dispose of such items and it shouldn’t be a surprise when we are out enjoying the countryside to see

the odd couch or box spring out there — some folks can’t afford or will not pay these tipping fees. As to the flat tire, clean up the yard, people. It was a screw in my tire, most cer-

tainly picked up at the landfill. Either that or repay me for the flat. This is most definitely not the first time for me to get a flat there. Sheila White Summerland

A trip to Whitehead Lake (above Headwaters) took a little longer in 1911 than the hour and a half drive it takes today in a pickup. These good ol’ boys from Summerland may have been heading out on a hunting trip or going up to check on the Whitehead dam, part of Summerland’s watershed, but whatever the reason for their excursion, on their single horsepower quadrupeds it was sure to take the better part of a week.

Dear Editor: For the past several months a lady has been tending the garden at the Harold Simpson Memorial Youth Centre. She is doing a wonderful job and we greatly appreciate her contribution. Unfortunately she is like a “garden fairy”, in that no one from our organization has managed to catch her in the act to thank her. We would like to ask her to assist with the fall plant sales and to upgrade the landscaping as well. Could she kindly call the Youth Centre at 250-494-9983 so she can be thanked and given more work.

Support Liberals in next provincial election Dear Editor: I am a card-carrying B.C. Conservative. I joined the party last year when it became obvious that the B.C. Liberals’ new leader, Christy Clarke, was failing to change the party’s fortunes. I am telling you this because I want you to know what my own allegiances are when I tell you this: Next May, please

vote B.C. Liberal. As someone who, for a brief time, attempted to organize the Penticton riding association for the B.C. Conservatives and due to that role, was able to meet with John Cummings and other influential B.C. Conservatives a few times, I can no longer support this party. The recent selfdestruction of the party should tell you

a lot about Mr. Cummings and the people who support him. After speaking to him several times and failing to keep his interest in our conversation for more than (no exaggeration) 45 seconds each time, I really started to question who this man was and what his intentions and motivations are. I believe he is the wrong man for the job and recent

developments solidify my belief. In 1997, during the last NDP administration, due to the NDP’s taxation and economic policies, I, along with tens of thousands of others, were forced to leave our home and our province just to find a job. It took me 11 years to work my way back home to B.C., and now with the NDP poised to

regain control of the B.C. Legislature next May, I fear I may have to pick up my family and move back to Alberta again. This is not fear mongering. This is reality. It happened last time, and it could very well happen again. Mr. Dix recently announced he has no intention of balancing the provincial budget any time soon and has even promised he

would eliminate the balanced budget law. He has also announced he will increase taxes on business, the primary driving force behind job creation. He has also announced he would increase the carbon tax. All of these are punitive measures and will only do one thing: Hurt job and economic growth.

If you care at all about the economic future of this province and the ability for young people to stay and work in their own backyard, then I’m begging you; please don’t vote NDP. For all of the B.C. Liberals’ faults, they have far fewer of them than the NDP and the Conservatives. Craig Bloom Summerland

COUNCIL REPORT The regular meeting of municipal council was held Tuesday evening in council chambers. The mayor and all councillors were present.

Resolutions Zoning to change Municipal staff will prepare an Official Community Plan amendment to change the land use designation at 14806 Biagioni Ave. from Low Density Residential to Administrative and to rezone the property from RSD3Residential Estate Lot to I-Institutional. The site is for a new location for the Jehovah’s Witnesses Kingdom Hall. While municipal staff had supported the application, the municipality’s Advisory Planning Committee had not supported the application. The resolution passed with Coun. Bruce Hallquist, Coun. Lloyd Christopherson and Coun. Orv. Robson opposed.

Setback reduced

Railway crew Members of the crew of the Spirit of Summerland locomotive are, from left, Angus McClellan, Doug Campbell, Mo Morrison, Eric Cooper, Mark Dicer and Neil Andrews. Seated on the locomotive are Robin Forbes, left, and Brad Coates. The Kettle Valley Steam Railway marked the locomotive’s 100th birthday on Saturday.

Steam locomotive heritage honoured The Spirit of Summerland, the locomotive pulling the Kettle Valley Steam Railway’s train has been used for railway service for the past 100 years. On Saturday, railway staff and supporters gathered to mark the centennial of the locomotive. Built in Montreal, it was one of the

most powerful locomotives in Canada at the time, said railway historian Jonathan Hanna. Doug Campbell, a brakeman with the railway, said the train was built for plenty of service. “The engine was created as a workaday locomotive,” he said. Today, the steam railway runs 182 trains a year and covers a distance of more than 5,800 kilometres. Joe Smuin, an author who has written extensively about the railway, said much work had been done to restore the locomotive in Summerland.

“Most of you have no idea of the depth of accomplishment you see here,” he said. “You’re seeing no small miracle and a great deal of dedicated talent.” O k a n a g a n Coquihalla MP Dan Albas said it is important to reflect on the community’s heritage. “When you honour our past, it says a lot about our future,” he said. The railway draws more than 25,000 riders each year. “Tourists come from all over the world,” said Mayor Janice Perrino. “You make us all very proud.”

A development variance permit to reduce a property setback was approved. The variance permit, for 5020 Towgood Pl., reduces the minimum setback from Highway 97 from 15 metres to 4.6 metres to allow an accessory building.

Setbacks adjusted Municipal staff will prepare a zoning bylaw amendment to adjust setbacks for agricultural uses.

Funding approved for charge stations The mayor and corporate officer will sign the contribution agreement for the community charging infrastructure initiative. The charging stations are for electric vehicles.

Survey results received The results of the 2012 Citizen Survey were received and will be made available to the public at municipal hall and on the municipality’s website.

Grant application endorsed Council endorsed the UBCM Fuel Management Operation Treatment grant application. The required application documents will be submitted to the Union of B.C. Municipalities.

Title error corrected Council will refund $1,455 in property taxes paid as a result of a property tile error. Taxes were collected for a property at 13677 Rosedale Ave., but the site is a common area, not an individual lot. The refund is for 2010 to 2012. The property error will be corrected for 2013.

Bluegrass fee set The Summerland Bluegrass Group will be charged the full facility rental of $349.44 a day and $3.50 per unit during the three-day bluegrass festival. The festival is held at the Summerland Rodeo Grounds on the second weekend of June each year.

Bylaw Zoning bylaw read A bylaw to rezone 8218 Pollock Terrace from RSD2-Residential Large Lot to RDHResidential Duplex Housing was given first reading.

Budget reduction considered Proposal calls for five per cent cut in departmental expenses A budget-cutting proposal by the municipality’s finance committee has been put on hold. The recommendation was to direct department heads to provide a five per cent reduction in their operating expenses for next year. Coun. Bruce Hallquist said the recommendation was coming in late for the upcoming year, since municipal department managers are already in the process of calculating next year’s budgets. Municipal treasurer Ken Ostraat said the reduction will not be possible at each department. “We’re asking the department heads

to come back with as close to a five per cent reduction as possible,” he said. Coun. Peter Waterman said the resolution should be reworded to have t h e departm e n t h e a d s looking for the Peter best use Waterman of tax dollars rather than a specific amount to cut. Mayor Janice Perrino said the Helios report, completed late in 2008, showed the municipality was spending money appropriately and was slightly understaffed. A decision on the budget-cutting recommendation will be deferred until the new municipal administrator is on staff.

Art exhibit Bethany Handfield’s exhibit, Busy Cities and Things Unseen, opened on Thursday at the Summerland Art Gallery. The exhibit features encaustic and acrylic paintings. Encaustic painting uses beeswax mixed with damar resin and colour pigments which is then applied to a surface using hot implements. When polished, the surface of the painting is luminous, showing the textures and layers.

Gourmet comedy set for fall production Summerland Singers and Players will present 100 Lunches-A Gourmet Comedy Nov. 1 to 4 at Janet Ritchie Centre Stage. The play, by Jack Starkey and Leo W. Sears, is about a successful mystery playwright, Chuck Reynolds, who has had his plays lauded by all critics except

Charity Starr. When she shows up at his home and has the unmitigated gall to ask his expert help in writing a play of her own, Chuck fiendishly agrees but insists that their teacher/pupil sessions be held over lunch with Charity footing the bill at the most expensive

restaurants in New York. Lunatic waiters provide a humorous touch to these meetings. Love blossoms despite the scheming of Chuck’s amorous neighbour. Charity’s play opens on Broadway and she finds out what it’s like to be

a target for all her critical colleagues. Curtain time for evening performances is 8 p.m. and the matinee on Nov. 4 is 2 p.m. Tickets are available in Summerland at Indulgences and Good Omens Coffee House and in Penticton at Dragon’s Den on Front Street.

Celebrating small business Each year, the third week of October is designated Small Business Week across Canada. The Business Development Bank of Canada launched this initiative in 1979 to celebrate small business in Canada and the contribution small businesses make to the Canadian economy. Today Small Business Week is still led by BDC, but now involves local chambers of commerce and other business support organizations throughout the country. This year Small Business Week takes place from Oct. 14 to

20. This is the perfect time to focus on the contributions of small businesses to our local, provincial and national economy. Small businesses are often touted as the backbone of Canada’s economy, but what exactly is a small business and how much do they really contribute to our economy? Information from Industry Canada and Statistics Canada indicate that there are two categories of small business in Canada – those that employ one to four people and are known as micro businesses and those that employ

up to 20 people which are defined as small businesses. In Canada 98 per cent of businesses qualify as small businesses and more than five million Canadians or 48 per cent of the workforce work for them. In our own province, 98 per cent of B.C. businesses are also defined as small businesses and 82 per cent of our small businesses fall into the micro-business category. This represents almost 392,000 businesses employing more than one million B.C. residents or 46 per cent of our total workforce.


Arlene Fenrich Small businesses in BC account for 30 per cent of the province’s GDP, well above the national average of 27 per cent. B.C. Stats indicate that B.C. and Saskatchewan are tied for the highest ratio in the country. Glowing statistics give us a much deserved opportunity to pat ourselves on the back, but what do those statistics mean here at home? We know that here in Summerland, small businesses create and maintain employment, drive innovation, meet payrolls that support our families, and stimulate new economic activity. Of working Summerlanders, fully half of us work right here in town. And of our working high school students, it’s probably

safe to say that close to 100 per cent of them work locally for a small business. So those same small businesses are also teaching the next generation the importance of hard work, good service and integrity. So, while we recognize the challenges of the past few years and the challenges that may lie ahead, I firmly believe that Summerland businesses are up to the task of reinventing and growing their businesses. And when you see a small business owner this month and when you shop in a local store, say an extra thanks to the small business person you are meeting. They are keeping our town, our province and our country alive. We always appreciate your feedback. Please contact me at or Christine Petkau at Arlene Fenrich is President of the Summerland Chamber of Economic Development and Tourism and the owner of Edgy Petals. All of the members of The Board of Directors serve as volunteers.

Ask Your Dentist... I wear dentures and they don’t fit as well as they used to, what can I do about that? Al


Dr. Cindee Melashenko

There could be many possibilities. A great fitting denture always has an even (or balanced) bite. I often see dentures with worn denture teeth. Denture teeth are made of plastic and will wear down as you chew. On average, denture teeth can last 2-5 years without affecting the fit of your denture. When they have worn, this changes the balance of your bite and often causes sore spots on your gums. If you notice your denture has flat or worn teeth, you may need to have the teeth on your denture replaced. Another possibility for a poor fitting denture is that the inside of your denture doesn’t fit as well. The inside of your denture fits like a glove over your gums. Your bone and gums do change over time (you actually loose bone), so this affects the fit of your denture. You may need to have your denture relined on the inside. There may be multiple causes for a poor-fitting denture and you may be better off with a brand new one. With a new denture, you can update the colour, change the amount of teeth that you show when you smile, ensure a balanced bite, and ensure the fit of your denture is as accurate as possible. You can wear your old denture while the new denture is being made and most patients prefer to have a spare denture on hand anyhow. An instructor of mine likes to say that “dentures are a not a replacement for teeth, they are a replacement for NO teeth.” Another solution for an illfitting denture involves implants. We’re here to help in any way we can. Feel free to call, stop by, or send us an e-mail message. We are always accepting new patients and I’d be happy to answer your question in the next article (anonymously if desired). Have a great week!

K40 paints youth centre

Youth hall painting project Members of the K40 Club of Summerland complete a painting project at the Harold Simpson Memorial Youth Centre. Both youth and adult groups use the building, which was constructed in 1994.

Members of the K40 Club of Summerland completed a painting project at the Harold Simpson Memorial Youth Centre. John Dorn, president of the youth centre, said the K40 Club was asked to take on the work because the current members of the service club were the Kinsmen of the early 1990s who, along with the Summerland Lions Club, funded the youth centre. The K40 Club’s work included painting the stairway, the upstairs

hall and the games room. “Beside the labour of the K40 Club, we are grateful to Summerland Home Hardware, Summerland Builders Mart, the Health Care Auxilliary Thrift Store and Summerland Tim Hortons for their donations of supplies,” Dorn said. “I would personally like to thank Cliff White and Dave Reid, who are Youth Centre volunteers for their work in preparing for the project.”

Summerland Steam Junior Hockey Club


#4 Piers Egan Piers (“Eags”) Egan is a rookie with the Summerland Steam. He was born in Kelowna in 1995 and started playing hockey in 1999 at the Novice B level. He currently attends Summerland Secondary School. Piers’ favourite hockey memory is winning Provincials in Midget Tier 3 in Osoyoos. His favourite pre-game meal is pasta, garlic bread and caesar salad. His favourite movie is Gladiator and his favourite song is “Country Girls.” In addition to playing hockey, Piers also enjoys rugby, roller hockey, cliff jumping, paintball and go-karting, but he thinks the best thing about Summerland is the Summerland Steam. His favourite quote is by Wayne Gretzky. “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

Local authors to read at library At the suggestion of our Community Librarian, Susan Kline, the Friends of the Summerland

Library Society has organized In Our Own Write — A Celebration of Summerland Authors.

The event will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 23, from 3 to 7 p.m. in the library. Ten writers who

live in Summerland have agreed to read from published or current works, and answer questions

about what they write and why. Some of the authors will also have their books available for purchase and signing. Summerland has long been a magnet for artists in various disciplines and many writers have made it their home. The library reaches out to readers of all ages, and the Friends help sponsor such popular perennials as Books for Babies and the Summer Reading

Club. Event organizers want to draw attention to the people who are responsible for some of the books on the library’s shelves. The authors cover the range from children’s literature to local history and memoirs to social issues and the environment. The following writers have agreed to participate: Ruth Charles, Rick Cogbill,

Jean Cox, Al Crossley, Danny Evanishen, Don Gayton, Rene Goldman, Richard Haverkamp, Glenn Leaver and Susan McIver. A schedule of the order of readings for In Our Own Write will be posted in the library closer to the date. For more information, contact: Peter Hay, Friends of the Summerland Library, at peterbooks@gmail. com.

Craft classes offered at Critteraid Charity Shoppe The Critteraid Charity Shoppe will be offering Critteraid Craft Classes for students as of Sunday, Oct. 14. Students eight and older are invited to participate in these classes that will be held inside the shop at 201-10118 Main St. in Summerland Sunday afternoons from 1 to 3 p.m. The classes will be administered and instructed by Barb Tucker, a well known, local artist and artisan here in Summerland. Tucker has planned pottery, drawing and painting to name a few projects and hopes that students will be inspired by their pets and some of the animals at Critteraid Farm in Summerland. There is no charge for the classes and Tucker is donating all her time to administer this program. Project wares will

be offered for sale in the shop and all money raised through these projects will go toward specific animal expenses at Critteraid. For instance, Kyle the bunny needed dental surgery and needs follow-up surgery, Hobo the dog needed knee surgery, Smokey the dog needed bowel surgery and Mr. Moose, a cat belonging to a senior in Okanagan Falls, needed immediate surgery for a broken leg. Emergency expenses like these are over and above Critteraid’s operational budget and the money from the students’ projects can provide much needed financial assistance in order to pay veterinary expenses for animals in crisis. Students will be able to register for the Critteraid Craft Classes at the Critteraid Charity Shoppe by

(NC)—Take a bite out of winter and save money on fuel with these green driving tips from Natural Resources Canada. Usually no more than two to three minutes of idling is needed on cold winter days, then drive it; check your tire pressure at least once a month; use a block heater; ideally the block heater should be turned on by an automatic timer two hours before leaving; and avoid electric battery blankets and space heaters.
