Sparkle at Light Festival

John Arendt Summerland Review

Carolyn Rose Ziebarth was dressed for the 25th annual Festival of Lights with sparkling snowflakes. The festival was held downtown on Friday evening.

Klar participates in trade mission to India by John Arendt

A Summerland business person was part of a recent federal delegation to India. Al Klar, owner of Range Rider Canopies in Summerland, said the delegation is important since there is plenty of potential for increased trade between Canada and India. “India needs us. We have a

lot to offer,” he said. At present, Canada’s trade with India is $5 billion a year, but the federal government wishes to increase this amount to $16 billion in less than five years. By comparison, Canada’s trade with the United States is around $400 billion a year. Klar said by 2020, India’s middle class will be around the same size that in the

United States. “We should have a lot of trade with India,” he said. He added that Canada’s best trade opportunities with India are in commodities, energy, gas and resources. In addition, he said there are opportunities for valueadded agricultural developments. See OPPORTUNITIES Page 5

A Summerland family wants to know why their 91-year-old father almost died in a seniors home while staff failed to check on him for three days. Alfredo Bonaldi was found near death in his room at Summerland Seniors Village Sunday, Nov. 25. For three days he had missed his scheduled meals in the common dining area. He is being treated at Penticton Regional Hospital for kidney failure, a staph infection and salmonella poisoning. He is undergoing intense kidney dialysis and is being given antibiotics for the infections. He is unable to eat and is on intravenous. As of press time this week, he was starting to come around and attempting to speak, according to a family spokesman. “It’s still day-to-day,” said son-in-law Gil Inglis of Summerland. “He tried to get out a couple of words.” Inglis had found him in his bed, unconscious and suffering from severe diarrhea about 11 a.m. that Sunday. He called paramedics, who took him to Penticton’s emergency department. The paramedics also picked up his packaged medications. Inglis said it appeared he had not taken any of his prescriptions since Wednesday evening. Inglis now has possession of the blisterpacked medications. Bonaldi had dinner with his daughter Edi and his son-in-law on Wednesday Nov. 21 at the seniors home. He seemed fine at that time. They noted he took his regular medications with the meal that night. Then he missed lunch and dinner on Nov. 22, 23 and 24. Family members tried to reach him by phone at during that time but were not overly concerned because he was active and sociable. “He doesn’t sit in his room very much,” said Inglis. When he did not answer repeated calls Sunday morning they became worried enough that Inglis went to check on him. Both the B.C. Ministry of Health and the Interior Health Authority have sent personnel to the Summerland Seniors Village this week. See INSPECTOR Page 5

Summerland Review Thursday, December 6, 2012

Police see rise in thefts by John Arendt

Police in Summerland were kept busy as the number of thefts in the community increased during the summer and early fall. Last week, Sgt. Mona Kauffeld of the Summerland RCMP detachment presented the quarterly policing statistics. There were 22 thefts from vehicles reported in the third quarter of this year, compared with 23 in the same period in 2011, but the total number this year is higher. Since the beginning of 2012, 43 thefts from vehicles have been reported, compared with 38 from January to September, 2011. Vehicle thefts showed a marked increase, with 12 cases reported in the third quarter this year, up from five in the same period last year. Kauffeld said many of the vehicle thefts were trucks, trailers and boats or

all-terrain vehicles. Since the beginning of the year, there have been 23 thefts of vehicles, compared with 10 in the first nine months of 2011. The number of break and enters also rose from nine in the third quarter of 2011 to 13 in the third quarter of 2012. Since the beginning of the year, there have been 29 break and enters reported, up from 22 in the same time period a year earlier. While the number of other thefts is down slightly in the third quarter of the year, from 26 to 22, there have been more thefts overall this year, with 54 cases this year, up from 49 in the same period in 2011. While many of the other break and enters have been at sheds and unsecured buildings, the Summerland landfill has also been a target this year. Often, these are attempts to steal scrap metal for resale.

LEGALLY SPEAKING...

A public service message from Bell, Jacoe & Company

Winter is upon us!

It looks like we have turned the corner into winter. While not everyone is a snow fanatic, we all enjoy the Okanagan for having a little taste of winter without the prairie-like temperatures. No matter what outdoor activity you enjoy, the holiday and winter season is a time when everyone should take extra precautions when driving or travelling. Arriving safely is far more important than getting there quickly. Now that the roads are icy and snow covered, slow down and take that little extra time that will ensure your safe arrival. If you are going to enjoy more spirited beverages this winter, please take advantage of designated drivers and taxis. We will all be better off for it.

Providing proper care When Alfredo Bonaldi was found near death in his room at Summerland Seniors Village, something had gone badly wrong. The 91-year-old man, in the independent living section at the care facility, had missed his scheduled meals for three days. He is now at Penticton Regional Hospital where he is being treated for kidney failure, a staph infection and salmonella poisoning. Although Bonaldi was in independent living, his absence should have been noticed much sooner. The Interior Health Authority and the provincial Ministry of Health are working together to conduct an investigation into the incident. This investigation is important in order to prevent incidents such as this one from ever happening again. Answers are needed. Bonaldi and his family need to know what went wrong. The residents of the centre and their families need to know what will be done to ensure it will not happen in the future. And the community needs to know the care facilities are in fact providing the level of care one would expect. As Canada’s population continues to age, there will be an increasing need for facilities which can provide various levels of care to older residents. Facilities must be dependable and the quality of care must be constant, at all facilities. The investigation is far from complete, but it appears there was a breakdown in communication between those on staff who noticed him missing and the care staff who needed to check on him. It is important to identify the problems which led to this situation. It is even more important to examine the operations of the care facility and then determine measures to prevent similar problems.

The festive season in Summerland was launched with the 25th annual Festival of Lights on Friday evening. Once again, thousands of people attended to watch as the downtown businesses turned on their holiday lights. The annual festival requires a lot of effort and energy. Those who are involved have put much work into creating a festival which continues to attract thousands.

Will truth die on Deficit Hill? VICTORIA – Whatever happens in the provincial election five months from now, taxpayers should insist that it be the last spring vote. Now I know this isn’t sexy like the horse race of popularity polls so loved by the TV news. But integrity of public financial information is the next vital step in democratic reform, even Tom Fletcher more important than scheduled election dates. And the B.C. tradition of tabling untested election budgets, shutting down the legislature and firing up the campaign buses, has to end. The B.C. Liberals are on track to surpass the NDP on fudge-it budgets, having put millions into TV ads that insist the 2013 budget will struggle into the black. This is the hill Christy Clark has chosen to die on. Glen Clark set the modern bar with his 1996 election budget. After a run of red ink, it conjured a tidy little surplus that helped the NDP squeak out a win over the plaid-shirted Gordon Campbell. Campbell’s noisy exit had its roots in his 2009 fudge-it budget, which clung to an outdated  $500-million  deficit forecast that had already melted down along with banks,  auto  makers and U.S. real estate. After the election, British Columbians found out we were really $2.8 billion in the red.

Not one to waste a good crisis, Campbell ordered the harmonized sales tax. Now Premier Clark and Finance Minister Mike de Jong are proposing to balance the budget and shut down the HST money machine. Clark gave a speech in Coquitlam the day before last week’s budget update, warning it “won’t be pretty.” And it’s not. In September the currentyear deficit forecast jumped above $1 billion, largely due to

De Jong provided an early version of his answer in his September financial statement. Amazingly, it projects a recovery of more than $100 million in natural gas royalties next year. Hmmm. Liquefied natural gas exports to Asia are still years away, and the U.S., our only current energy export customer, is developing its own huge shale gas and shale oil reserves. In another forecasted miracle, sales tax revenue is expected to dip by a mere $120

The B.C. tradition of tabling untested election budgets, shutting down the legislature and firing up the campaign buses, has to end. a glut of natural gas. The latest update pushed it near $1.5 billion. Natural gas royalties are bumping along the bottom, no big change there. But now coal prices and shipments are down, and a slow real estate market has pinched the flow of cash from Bill Vander Zalm’s legacy, the property purchase tax. I erred in a previous column, saying this year’s deficit is partly due to a staged repayment of federal HST transition money. Not so. That entire $1.6 billion was booked in last year’s budget, pushing that deficit to a record $3 billion. This means the current $1.5 billion bleeder is based strictly on current revenues, debt servicing and spending. So how is this sucking chest wound going to suddenly heal next spring?

million as the old provincial sales tax returns next year. In 2014 it is projected to bounce right back to where it is today, around $6.1 billion. That’s odd. When former finance minister Kevin Falcon announced the transition back to PST last May, he described annual revenue loss of about $500 million the first year, and more than $600 million the next. Granted, business investment credits and HST rebates to the poor also end, saving the government a pile of cash as this significant tax reform dies. But it still looks like another fudge-it budget, designed to help another premier avoid the political graveyard at the foot of Deficit Hill.

bad apples We are disgusted by the motorists who insist on driving after they have been drinking. British Columbia has some harsh penalties for impaired drivers including fines, suspensions, prohibitions and vehicle impoundments, but these are not enough to deter some drivers. We are concerned that the number of incidents of impaired driving will only increase with the holiday season festivities.

Inspector brought in to investigate Continued from Page 1

An inspector from the Ministry of Health arrived Monday. The inspector will be working with the seniors village management and the IHA to determine how things went wrong and what needs to be corrected. Minister of Health Margaret MacDiarmid told the Review the inspection will go on as long as necessary. The consultant from the Interior Health Authority and the Ministry of Health inspector are co-operating. “We need to give them the time that it needs to take. We want them to do due diligence.” Although there could be a preliminary recommenda-

tion or finding, the full report could take awhile. Interior Health brought in a clinical consultant to Summerland Seniors Village Saturday morning to ensure appropriate care is being delivered to residents living at the facility. This consultant will remain on site

are cooperating fully with this work. Dr. Azim Jamal, president and CEO of Retirement Concepts, told the Review he is deeply sorry about the situation. “My apologies to the Bonaldi family.” He wants to find out how things went wrong so this does not happen again. “We want to make sure to have systems in place to avoid this in the future.” Jamal said Mr. Bonaldi was seen by staff in the common area of the Summerland Seniors Village on both the Thursday and Friday. He was not seen in the common area on the Saturday. He said the dining room staff did report his absence,

He did not receive nursing care and took his medications unassisted. Inglis disputes the report that staff saw Bonaldi during the three days. When he was found, his skin

Why didn’t he go over to eat?” Bonaldi appeared to have become ill from salmonella poisoning, “We are not suggesting it was food poisoning. We all ate the same thing,” said Inglis. The family is still mourning the death

of their mother and Bonaldi’s wife. Maria (Luisa) Bonaldi, 84, died in August after an injury suffered in the same facility. Bedridden and suffering from dementia, she received a broken femur when staff was moving her for a bath. The fracture was not diagnosed for seven days until she was taken for x-rays. Doctors ordered immediate surgery to relieve the pain, but she did not recover from the operation. The Interior Health Authority is also investigating that case. In addition to the Inglises, daughters Pat McCoy and Liana Felker also live in Summerland.

Police report Driver collides with pole

On Nov. 28 7:18 a.m., police were called to a single-vehicle accident on Highway 97 and Prairie Valley Road. A motorist driving south veered to the left and struck a pole. The vehicle was totalled. The driver was taken to hospital, but had no serious injuries. Police said the motorist was a prohibited driver.

Driver and deer collide

On Nov. 28 at 6:05 a.m., a vehicle travelling north on Highway 97 near Walters Road received extensive damage when a deer jumped onto the road. The driver was uninjured.

Uninsured driver prohibited

On Nov. 30 at 1:17 p.m., police stopped a motorist who had no insurance on the vehicle. The driver had been drinking and failed a roadside screening device. His license was suspended for 90 days and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

While India is the world’s second largest producer of fruits and vegetables, little of that is sold as value-added food. “We can play a

major and vital role there,” Klar said. There are also education opportunities since India has many good management schools and technical centres.

“People are doing so well,” he said. “There are so many opportunities.” At present, roughly one million Canadians are from India, with 80 per cent from

Punjab. At Canadian universities, 33,000 Indian students are enrolled. Klar said the delegation was a positive experience and he

hopes it will result in increased trade with India. “The seed is being sown there and it is bearing the fruit,” he said. “We want to see it go a little faster.”

On Dec. 1 at 10:32 p.m., police stopped a motorist who was not wearing his seatbelt. The driver had been drinking and failed the roadside screening device. He was given a 90-day prohibition and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

Thursday, December 6, 2012 Summerland Review

Land use for Kingdom Hall approved by John Arendt The Summerland Jehovah’s Witnesses will be able to build a larger Kingdom Hall just east of Highway 97. At the municipal council meeting on Nov. 26, council gave final reading to a bylaw to amend the Official Community Plan and zoning at 14806 Biagioni Ave. to allow the construction of the facility. Earlier, several members of council had voted against the bylaw, since they believed the land could be better used for other purposes. The earlier readings of the bylaw

passed with a 4-3 vote. On Nov. 26, Coun. Peter Waterman — one of the councillors who had initially supported the bylaw — was not present, resulting in a potential tie vote. A tie vote would have defeated the bylaw. Coun. Lloyd Christopherson, who had voted against the bylaw at the earlier readings, said he was concerned with the possibility of defeating it because of Waterman’s absence. The bylaw required support of a majority of full council, or at least four council members, in order to pass.

“If it is defeated, I feel it is a failure of the democratic process,” he said. He asked that the bylaw be deferred until a full council was present once again. Coun. Bruce Hallquist, who had also voted against the ear-

lier readings of the bylaw, said he would not vote against the final reading. “I won’t be opposing it,” he said. “I won’t be voting for it, but I won’t be opposing it. We all had our say and it’s time to move on.” The third council

member who had been opposed in the earlier readings of the bylaw was Coun. Orv Robson. While Christopherson and Hallquist did not raise their hands in favour or against the bylaw, the reading was carried. Municipal admin-

istrator Tom Day said under Section 123 of the Community Charter, council members at the table may not abstain from voting when a resolution or bylaw comes up. If a council member is in a conflict of interest over an item

on the agenda, he or she must leave the room for that item, but those at the table must vote. Those who do not raise their hands in support or in opposition are considered to have voted in favour of the item on the table.

Summerland Review Thursday, December 6, 2012

Transit service planned for fall Summerland should have a transit service late next year by John Arendt While Summerland still does not have a municipal transit service, the situation should change by next fall, municipal administrator Tom Day said. He explained that the province has promised a service for the region by September. The service will be shared between Summerland and the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen. The province will pay roughly half the cost of operating the transit. The rest of the money will be split between the two local

governments sharing the service. For a full year of the service, Summerland’s share would be around $50,000. A one per cent increase in municipal property taxes would bring in around $60,000. Day said some of the costs of the transit can be recouped since the user fees will stay in the communities operating the service. However, rider fees alone will not pay the entire cost of a bus service. Before the service can become a reality, the municipality and regional district must work out the details such as the times, frequency and route for the new transit service. Day said Summerland is likely the largest municipality

in British Columbia without a transit service. Nelson, with a smaller population, has a system with four bus routes in the city and a fifth route providing a connection to Castlegar. The Nelson to Castlegar route runs Monday to Friday while the routes within the city run Monday to Saturday. Revelstoke, also smaller than Summerland, operates four routes within the town, three of them providing Monday to Saturday service. By comparison, Summerland offers a limited service to Penticton Monday to Friday. The existing service must be booked in advance.

Ask Your Apple pie fundraiser Dentist... to benefit Mozambique Q A The youth in Summerland are fighting poverty in Mozambique, and they’re doing it with apple pies. In recent years,

the young people of Summerland Baptist Church have made and sold apple pies in order to fund their mission trips to Mexico and Grenada.

Even though there is no youth mission trip planned for this coming year, they decided to make the pies anyway and donate the funds to Mercy Tech Mission. Mercy Tech is a Summerland-based non-profit group that teaches trades and skills in Africa. “I am excited about the prospect of the youth of Summerland participating in a fundraiser that doesn’t necessary benefit them but rather their global community,” said Mikel Laurie, youth pastor at Summerland Baptist Church. “We have done so many fundraisers for our own trips in the past, and now we can bless someone else.” On Saturday morning, Dec. 1, volunteers of all ages met in the gymnasium of Summerland Baptist Church to make more than 500 freezer-ready pies, all presold in the weeks previous. The apples were donated by local orchardist Dave Gartrell, who has provided fruit for these fund-raising events many times in the

Volunteers wanted

Making pies

Caitlin Shaw prepares a pie for a fundraiser organized by youth at Summerland Baptist Church. The money raised will go to Mercy Tech Mission, a Summerand-based non-profit group teaching trades and skills in Africa.

Summerland Red Cross is looking for more volunteers. Those interested in volunteering are asked to please call 250-494-0818 and leave their name and number where they can be reached.

“We depend on fundraising efforts such as this,” says Cogbill. “Our motto at Mercy Tech is ‘Changing Lives, One Skill at a Time,” and the Summerland youth are helping us do this in a very practical way.” Mercy Tech Mission is returning to Mozambique in March 2013 to continue work on their automotive shop training centre, and the funds raised by the pie sales will go towards that trip. More information can be found at www.mercytechmission.com or on the Summerland Baptist Church website at www.summerlandbaptist.ca.

past. Rick Cogbill, director and founder of Mercy Tech Mission, is amazed at the contribution the youth are making. “Being willing to do a fund-raiser for something they are not directly involved in really shows the depth and maturity of our young people. We are learning to become a global community, and this is an example to all of us to think of others before ourselves,” he said. Mercy Tech Mission is committed to fighting poverty world-wide by taking trades-training to developing countries, where education and training are difficult to obtain.

What kind of toothbrush should I be using? Maria L.

Taking care of our teeth is a Dr. Cindee Melashenko very important part of keeping them for a long time. Basically, there are two types of brushes, ones with motors and ones without. You can be very effective with both types of brushes, but studies show that electric toothbrushes help most of us do a better job. There are different types of electric toothbrushes. Sonicare and Oral B are the main brands you will find at the store. Both provide you with a timer to ensure you brush for 2 minutes. Both have recharging stations so that you don’t have to throw the brush away, you just need to replace the head of the toothbrush every three months. The brush heads move when they are held in place which makes them more efficient at removing the plaque or bacteria on our teeth that cause cavities. These are the most expensive but are worthwhile in my opinion. I love my Sonicare toothbrush. Another type of electric toothbrush comes with a non-rechargeable battery and a fixed brush head that is not replaceable. These brushes are not as pricey, but you will need to replace the entire brush once the battery is exhausted. Often, they have a very large brush surface that can be tricky to get into tight areas and not all of these brushes come with a timer. Regular or manual toothbrushes can do the same job as electric brushes as long as you use the proper technique. Your dental hygienist can review your technique with you. With all three types of brushes, the important parts to brushing remain the same: use a fluoridated toothpaste, brush for 2 minutes, brush all the teeth and surfaces thoroughly, and brush gently below the gum. Even with the new toothbrushes, we still need to floss between the teeth. 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!

Watchers to count birds The 114th annual Audubon Christmas bird counts are back. The Audubon Christmas bird counts are the oldest wildlife census in North America. It is the source of much data on bird numbers, movements, range, affects of weather on birds in the winter, feeding habits, feeder activity and so on. These counts cover North and South America, the West Indies, Bermuda, Hawaii, Guam and the Commonwealth of North Mariana Islands. All the data, including the names of all participants is published in the Audubon Society’s Field Notes.

The Penticton count is on Dec. 16. The count circle is divided into 20 areas; 13 in Penticton, seven in Summerland. The count day goes from about 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Teams for the count are led by experienced birders, so one does not have to have any expertise in order to participate. Those who prefer to count birds at their feeder from the comfort and warmth of their homes, as feeder watchers, need to be able to confidently identify the local winter birds. At the end of the count day there will be potluck supper (food contributions are welcome) and count up at

the United Church on Main Street in Penticton beginning at 4.30 p.m. There is fun and merriment after supper as team leaders recap the birds seen and the events of the day in their area. If you want to participate in this fun day, get fresh air and exercise and have something for show and tell for future generations please call Dick Cannings regarding one of the Penticton count areas at 250-493-3393 and Laurie Rockwell for the Summerland portion of the count at 250-494-7558 and for the dates of the other counts in the South Okanagan-Similkameen, Boundary Country and Princeton counts.

Library director appointed After a nationwide search, the Okanagan Regional Library board of trustees has named Stephanie Hall as the next executive director. She will succeed Lesley Dieno who, after 25 years at the helm of the regional library, will be retiring at the end of December. “Ms. Hall brings a wealth of experience, knowledge, and passion to the position and the board looks forward to her

endeavours on behalf of the ORL’s future,” said Marilyn Harkness, who headed the library board’s personnel committee. Carol Zanon, chair of the library board, said the position involves the investment of the financial and cultural interests of the communities within the regional library system. “The Board recognizes that the new Executive Director must bring many skills that are needed

to address the challenges that libraries, staff and trustees face in the new age of internet literacy and changing technologies,” she said. Ms. Hall is currently the Director of Public Library Planning in Saskatchewan. She is a graduate of the Faculty of Information Studies at the University of Toronto and has 23 years of public library, academic library and special library experience.

Prior to her current role, she was the chief librarian with Powell River Public Library, and then moved to Saskatchewan to become director and CEO of the Chinook Regional Library. “I’m really looking forward to working with the board and staff of the Okanagan Regional Library,” Hall said. “It’s a wellmanaged organization, and that makes it a great platform for launching new initiatives.”

Provincial deficit forecast grows again by Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – The B.C. government has increased its deficit forecast for the second time this fiscal year, citing lower revenues from coal sales and continuing low price and sales volume of natural gas. A slow real estate market has also reduced provincial revenues from the property purchase tax and provincial property tax for schools, Finance Minister Mike de Jong said Wednesday. De Jong released the finance ministry’s second-quarter update, forecasting that the deficit will reach $1.47 billion

by the time the fiscal year ends March 31. That’s an increase of $328 million from the first-quarter forecast released in September. The September deficit forecast was up $173 million from last February’s budget, attributed mostly to a drop in natural gas prices and sales volume due to oversupply in the North American market. The finance ministry says natural gas prices and revenues have been flat since September, but coal and property tax revenue are driving a drop of $202 million in expected revenues to the provincial treasury since then. De Jong said despite the slide in

revenues, he is still on track to balance the 2013 budget when he presents it in the legislature on Feb. 19. Speaking for the NDP opposition, MLA Carole James said she does not believe the next budget will be truly balanced, despite a plan to sell government assets that she likened to “selling the family farm.” James noted that the forecast deficit has grown by about 50 per cent since the last budget, and the B.C. Liberal claims of strict spending control are contradicted by spending $15 million on ads that mainly promote the B.C. Liberal party in the runup to the May election.

A united effort

Volunteers at the Summerland Healthcare Auxiliary contributed $145,000 to cover the entire cost of an operating table and lights at the Summerland Health Centre. The health centre handles many day surgeries for the region.

Campaign raises money for health care The South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation is launching the seventh annual Tree of Dreams Campaign. The focus of this year’s campaign is on essential pieces of

medical equipment for Penticton Regional Hospital. The list of items urgently needed is lengthy, including: o Bronchoscope ($30,000), used to diagnose diseases of

the lungs o Rapid Fuser, ($30,000) fluid management system for major trauma surgery o Ear Nose and Throat Navigation System, for more accuracy and less

invasive sinus surgery ($120,000) o Seven Adjustable Renal Dialysis Treatment Chairs, ($5,000 each) Ten Stretchers ($5,800), adjustable and more comfortable o Two Cardiac Defibrillators, Emergency department, for patients in cardiac arrest ($58,000) o Hypo/Hyperthermia Unit, ICU department for patients after suffering a cardiac arrest ($30,000) o Ultrasound Probe ($30,000), to assess nerve involvement during surgery o Sentinel Node Probe ($50,000), breast cancer lymph node dissection which relieves the trauma and complications associated with surgery Organizers say these pieces of equipment are critical and they must raise $632,500 by April. Some significant donations have already come in. These include

$145,000 from the Summerland Healthcare Auxiliary, $10,000 from the Penticton Hospital Foundation and $15,000 from the South Okanagan Health Care Auxiliary. The money from the Summerland Healthcare Auxiliary will go for a new operating room table and lights at the Summerland Health Centre.

Jane Drapeau, chair of the medical foundation, said the donations received so far are almost a quarter of the total needed. Executive director Janice Perrino said the medical foundation’s goal is always to make sure that the Penticton Regional Hospital and all of our health care facilities have the best medical equipment

available for the residents over the entire region. For more information or to make a donation, please visit the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation at the Penticton Regional Hospital, or mail your donation in to 550 Carmi Ave., Penticton, V2A 3G6 or call 250-492-9027 or toll free at 1-866-7710994.

Summerland Atom House sweeps three in a row A strong defensive effort from Samantha Catellier, Matthew Lowery, Craig Preston, Connor McWatters, Logan Gottwald, Kaeden Seiter and Jack Edwards allowed the forwards to pressure the opposition. The result was that on Nov. 4 the Summerland Atom House team defeated the West Kelowna

Destroyers by a score of 12 to 2. Although rarely under sustained pressure, the goaltending tandem of Ben Lewis and Caitlyn Riddle made some timely saves when called upon. The balanced attack resulted in goals by eight different players. Goals were scored by Seth Doan (1),

Summerland Steam Junior Hockey Club

Kai Reid (3), Zachary Boerboom (2), Brett Cerutti (1) Max Havers (2), Levi Doerksen (1), Cameron Budney (1), and Sarah Paul (1). The McDonald’s Golden Jersey was presented to Ryan Haist for his effort. On Nov. 10 Summerland Atom House powered back from a 5-3 deficit at the end of the second period to pull out a 6-5 victory over the Osoyoos Rattlers in the last minute of play. Goal scorers were Zachary Boerboom

(3), Seth Doan (2) and Max Havers (1). Zachary was also awarded the McDonald’s Golden Jersey for his hard work at both ends of the ice. Led by the strong offensive effort of Kai Reid with 5 goals and an assist, Summerland had an easier time against the Westside Warriors on Nov. 18. Summerland busted out to a 6-0 lead before finishing the game with an 8-3 win. Other goal scorers were Seth Doan, Levi

Doerksen and Jack Edwards. Zachary Boerboom counted three assists. Ben Lewis was awarded the McDonald’s Golden Jersey for his solid goaltending. The Summerland Atom House team has to be congratulated on their team play and defensive effort. Their success is in no small part to the instruction provided by coaches Chris Pagliocchini, Darren McWatters, Bruce Catellier and Pat Preston.
