Tourism logo launched

Numerous groups participated in branding project by John Arendt

A new tourism logo has been developed to

market Summerland for visitors. The logo was unveiled on Tuesday evening. It was developed by a committee representing 14 tourism stakeholder groups in the community.

“We’re very proud of this,” said Brett DeWitt, chair of the Summerland Chamber of Economic Development and Tourism’s tourism committee. “It was a lot of work.”

Stephanie Tambellini Design Studio Inc. and Simone Carlysle-Smith of the Thompson-Okanagan Tourism Association assisted in the branding project. Photography was done

by Eric Simard of Eric’s Photo Lab, Kelly Funk Photography and Darren Robinson Photography. “It was a long process, but it was very inclusive,” DeWitt said. See POSITIONING Page 6

Baseball academy proposed by Barbara Manning Grimm

Plans are moving ahead for establishment of an academy for young athletes at the Glenfir school site in Summerland. The B.C. Youth Base-

ball Legacy Complex has signed a Letter of Intent to purchase the former Glenfir Independent School in Summerland to establish an international baseball and softball academy. The announcement was made this

week by Robin Harden, president of the BCYBLC, following seven years of work on the project. The school is to be redeveloped as a coeducational college prep baseball/softball sport academy for students

in Grades 9 through 12. Doors would open in the fall of this year. The academy will offer day and full board programs. The academy will provide a comprehensive and complete educational program to each student

leading to graduation following the B.C. Ministry of Education guidelines. Students will be assessed academically upon application and course loads designed for each student. See PLANS Page 8

Police Report Pile-up in snowbank

Two vehicles that couldn’t make it up an icy stretch in the 8000-block of Giant’s Head Road Jan. 8 ended up colliding with one another in a snowbank. A Mazda failed to make it up the hill, slid backwards and got stuck in a snowbank. A Toyota went past, hit the same patch of ice and slid into the Mazda. No one was injured.

Construction items stolen

A burglary at a house under construction on Harding Street was reported to police the morning of Jan. 12. Missing are a construction-grade heater with an attached cable, a roll of copper wire and copper pipe.

Opinions sought on growth by John Arendt

Consultants will seek out comments and suggestions from the public as they complete the municipality’s Urban Growth Strategy Review. On Monday, council awarded the contract for the review to Sustainability Solutions Group. The contract is for $60,988, excluding taxes. Earlier, council had given early budget approval of $65,000 for the project. The bid was not the lowest of the eight proposals received. Prices ranged from $49,400 to $83,000. While an earlier municipal contract for janitorial work had to be awarded on the basis of price alone, municipal administrator Tom Day said the contract for the review was decided based on additional factors. He said the successful bid included

additional efforts to garner public input. “They’re not all bidding on the same amount of work,” he said. “The one staff recommended is far and beyond in terms of service.” The bid includes a significant public engagement process, including a sponsored barbecue at a municipal event, online input tools, signs to advertise the project, public open houses and land use modelling tools. In addition, there are initiatives to involve youths in the process. “We want a lot of youth participation,” Day said. Members of council were impressed with the emphasis on youth involvement in the review. “It’s important we engage the youth,” said Coun. Robert Hacking. “It’s their community we’re building.” Coun. Peter Water-

man was concerned with the number of ways the consultants plan to consult the community. “It sounds too good to be true,” he said. “There are a tremendous number of points of engagement.” Coun. Lloyd Christopherson said the proposal is ambitious, but Sustainability Solutions Group has done well in the past. “These people do have a proven track record. To me, that is very important,” he said. “They’re taking a multi-focus approach on this.”

Summerland’s present growth strategy was adopted in 2008 as part of the Official Community Plan. The strategy directs growth to the Prairie Valley area, primarily the property which was intended for the Summerland Hills Golf Resort. The golf resort proposal has since been abandoned. In addition, the municipality has adopted a regional growth strategy, a climate action plan and an updated zoning bylaw since the 2008 Official Community Plan was adopted.

The first of council’s goals and objectives for 2013 to 2014 is to work towards establishing Summerland as a sustainable community. In order to achieve this goal, council is reviewing the growth strategy. “At a time when municipalities are concerned about fiscal and environmental responsibility, it is important for us to revisit our urban growth boundary and associated impacts,” said Mayor Janice Perrino. “This is the most important document we will deal with this term.”

Request for Proposals Through its 2013 grants program, the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan will support a wide range of programs to benefit residents in communities throughout the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen.

Skidded across highway

Traveling slower than the speed limit wasn’t enough to prevent a GMC Canyon pickup truck from spinning out on Highway 97 at the north end of Trout Creek the evening of Jan. 9. Police reported the southbound vehicle was traveling below the posted 90 kilometre an hour limit when it crossed the traffic median, crossed the oncoming traffic lanes, rolled and landed on its wheels in the ditch. Minor injuries were reported.

Estate Planning revisited

It was popular a few years ago as an Estate Planning tool to transfer property and assets into the joint names of parents and children. While this strategy definitely reduced the amount of probate fees payable it also led to other problems. One of the main concerns which has arisen is that any time you transfer ownership of an asset to another person, including your children, you may not get it back if you need it or change your mind. The person you have put on title to the asset has to agree to provide it back to you. If they do not agree (and believe me it happens) then you will have to go to court to force them to return title to you. Not the cost cutting measure you had in mind when you set up the transfer, I'm sure.

EDITORIAL

our pick

Creating an identity Not too many years ago, Summerland worked to create an identity as an Old English community, complete with a themed facade in the downtown and a town crier. Today, that vision of Summerland has been left behind as the community has new ways of defining itself. The latest part of the evolution of Summerland’s image came onTuesday evening, when the Summerland Chamber of Economic Development and Tourism unveiled a new tourism logo and brand. The branding and logo project, funded by the municipality and the chamber, cost $10,000. This is not the first logo change for Summerland. A few years ago, the municipality adopted a new logo, which can be seen on municipal documents, on the website at summerland.ca and on the signs at the north and south entrances to the community. Both the municipality’s logo and the tourism logo and branding have changed considerably from the Old English emphasis which had been used to identify the community. Old English is no longer used to describe the appearance of the downtown buildings, nor is it used as a selling point in tourism promotions. The former Town of Festivals slogan, used in the 1990s, has also been abandoned. The logo changes make sense since the community has changed over the years. The new tourism logo and branding, along with the municipal logo, provide a fresh image for the community. Over time, however, the logo and branding should be revisited to ensure it continues to serve as an accurate description of Summerland. All communities are continually evolving and eventually, the descriptions which fit today will no longer be as accurate in the future. Until then, however, the logo and branding should help to clearly identify Summerland and to set the community apart from other places.

While the last few years have been difficult for many Summerland businesses, there are also some bright spots. One business is under new ownership. Another has received an award for its work, a third is moving to extended hours and a fourth is expanding its service. We would like to see a far more active business sector, but the changes we have seen are encouraging.

Inconvenient truth of oil pollution VICTORIA – A study of six northern Alberta lakes conducted by Environment Canada and other scientists was published last week, generating headlines around the world. “Oil sands toxins ‘accumulate in freshwater systems,’” the BBC announced. The headline in The New York Times declared: “Oil sands industry in Canada tied Tom Fletcher to higher carcinogen level.” The study was reported with similar alarm across Canada. It looked at levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in lakebed sediment, and found levels measurably higher than natural sources since oil sands extraction began 50 years ago. Most news reports I saw made little or no effort to put this information into context, in terms of the actual risk to humans, fish and other organisms. Some quoted people they knew would scream bloody murder, because as we in the media are taught, conflict and fear attract an audience. As expected, U.S. environmental groups and their Canadian branch offices ramped up the rhetoric to battle their favourite villain. At least one major Canadian newspaper, The Globe and Mail, did a responsible job. Its report on the study stated “PAH pollution level remains low – on par, at worst, with an urban lake – but is rising.”

In fact, five of six lakes tested were far below average contamination of urban lakes. PAH fallout is a daily constant of urban life, from vehicles, industry, and particularly where coal is burned for electricity. To be clear, there are dozens of different forms of PAH. Some have been shown to increase cancer risk, and some have been linked to (but not proven to cause) infertility, immune disorders and fish mutations. So when you drive your kids

true picture of carbon dioxide emissions, which is that nearly 70 per cent of CO2 from all petroleum comes when you burn the final product in engines and furnaces. In B.C., which doesn’t burn coal for electricity, fully 40 per cent of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions are from transportation. Other sources include home heating and industry. Berman insisted I was wrong, and claimed 70 per cent of Can-

Most news reports I saw made little or no effort to put this information into context, in terms of the actual risk to humans, fish and other organisms. to school, stand at the bus stop, or drink a glass of water from Coquitlam Lake or any urban reservoir, you are exposed to PAH pollution from human and natural sources. The risk from this is an ongoing focus of research, but this study confirms one thing: your exposure is likely greater in any urban area than it is downwind of the Alberta oil sands. I argued this point with B.C.’s celebrity environmentalist Tzeporah Berman, who has shuttled back and forth from ForestEthics to Greenpeace in recent years. She took to her Facebook page to publicize a dramatic call to action from 350.org, one of the most strident climate change advocacy groups in the U.S., selectively using a quote and picture from The New York Times. Our debate turned to greenhouse gas emissions. I argued that this PAH study mirrors the

ada’s greenhouse gases come from “heavy industry.” I asked for her source. No response. A 2010 report by a Royal Society of Canada expert panel calculated that 27 per cent of our country’s fossil fuel emissions come from transportation. Another 16 per cent is from fuels burned for electricity. Five per cent is from oil sands operations. Berman’s figure is conveniently untrue. Greenpeace  and the rest of the environmental scare industry want you to believe that stopping Alberta’s oil sands and pipelines would save the planet. Also wrong. It would drive oil demand from the U.S., Venezuela’s oil sands and elsewhere, with little net effect on the climate or pollution.  Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews. com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

culls

In the 2008 Official Community Plan, future growth was directed to the proposed Summerland Hills Golf Resort. Shortly after the plan was adopted, the resort proposal was abandoned. Municipal council is now in the process of creating a new growth strategy. The growth strategy review, at a cost of more than $60,000, is not cheap. While the process will need to be repeated again in the future, we hope the new strategy will have a longer shelf life than the growth strategy in the 2008 Official Community Plan.

Awards created for volunteers Dear Editor: I congratulate the Summerland Review for last week’s editorial on our community awards, Honouring Service. This topic requires discussion by our community. In 1938, Summerland’s Municipal Council made the decision to honour volunteerism and good citizenship. To ensure politics did not taint the selection process, municipal council gave the task to the Board of Trade (now named the Chamber of Commerce). The reeve (mayor) of the day, Reid Johnston donated the Good Citizen trophy. Over the years, the

Board of Trade and Chamber of Commerce honoured not only our good citizens but other volunteers who had made significant contributions to Summerland. These awards included, Sportsman of the Year, Coach of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Man of the Year, Woman of the Year, Youth of the Year, Arts and Cultural Award and of course the Good Citizen Award. On four occasions, the President’s Award has been given for outstanding service to Summerland. In recent years, Summerland’s Community Awards program has morphed

into a business excellence award ceremony. This was never the intent of the community. Over the last few years, sadly, Summerland has lost several prominent citizens: citizens who made significant contributions to Summerland. Our community was never given an opportunity to thank these people. Summerland Municipal Council should create an independent Community Awards Committee and restore the intentions of acknowledging volunteerism and good citizenship. David Gregory Summerland

Dear Editor: Chief Spence’s “I’ll die for my people” is a con, and it undermines credibility in legitimate claims Indians and Inuits may have for more assistance from governments. To suggest that caving in to Chief Spence’s hunger strike would be to save her life is an insult to Canadian taxpayers, who are being taken to the cleaners again. The Attawapiskat Band is filthy rich with millions of dollars in assets, including close to $10 million in the stock

market, and about $85 million in gross income each year. Chief Spence and her close friends and councilors are living high off the hog while the children she is responsible for live in sewer infested shacks. Gambling on the stock market with the millions of dollars put in her trust, money desperately needed for basic needs, education and health care, should be good for a few years in jail. Lawyers and politicians who knowingly and willingly

allow this incredible travesty to perpetuate should be tried for the same crimes, and suffer the same consequences. Chief Spence has violated trust between the Chief and the band members who depend upon her decisions for their very existence. Chief Spence has become a national disgrace. She is a criminal, and should be in jail for conspiracy to defraud, breach of trust, and child abuse. Andy Thomsen Summerland

Dear Editor: To the road maintenance crew of the Municipality of Summerland: During the past two weeks, you have certainly been challenged towards keep-

ing our road clear of snow and have done so in a timely manner. I am of course referring to Garnett Valley Road. I wish to thank you for this improved

response to our much travelled road and your efforts to keep it safe for all the residents of this valley who drive it several times a day. Gordon K. Dunsdon Summerland

Spence’s hunger strike undermines credibility

Time to put it away?

In 1915, the construction of the railway line through the Coquihalla certainly provided some challenges, not the least of which was snow. These workers were probably a bit daunted to find snow inside the newly built snow shed which was actually supposed to keep the snow off of the rails. The photo reminded me of my childhood when my father told me that snow was kept in snow sheds for the summer and brought out for the winter. I believed him. I don’t know about you, but I think I’m ready to put it back in the sheds. (Ruth ten Veen is the archivist at the Summerland Museum.

Show support to Cozy Bay Dear Editor: Cozy Bay is well known for awesome food and service not only in Summerland, but many other places too. U n f o r t u n a t e l y,

their doors have been temporarily closed due to a flood in their restaurant. They are currently in the process of cleaning up the mess and making repairs,

but hope to be open soon. The loss of customers hits every small business hard. We can help these talented and hardworking ladies by

visiting Cozy Bay and showing them our support. We will also benefit too because their seafood is the best!   Rose Hunt Summerland

Positioning statement included Continued from Page 1

The committee developed a positioning statement for the tourism brand. “Summerland captures the essence of the Okanagan with an abundance of historical, cultural, recreational and agricultural experiences. Meandering roads with views of brilliant blue water, lush orchards and vineyards entice visitors to stop and sample the local fare. The charming town centre, anchored by Giant’s Head Mountain, offers an opportunity to share in the

genuine allure of the community. A true patchwork of activities and vistas, Summerland is the local’s pick for an authentic Okanagan experience,” the statement says. DeWitt said the positioning statement is the selling point of the branding effort. The logo was also designed to draw visitors to Summerland. The colours in the logo represent water, agriculture, sun and wine, in the shape of a column of steam. The tag line, Take

Your Time, has also been developed. Funding for the logo and branding project came from the municipality and from the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training through the Community Tourism Opportunities program. “The committee has worked diligently to complete this important tourism initiative,” said Brett DeWitt, president of the Tourism Advisory Committee. “The results are unique and beautiful and we

are fully confident that this will produce the desired result of enhancing Summerland’s tourism branding with a cohesive message.” R e p re s e n t a t i v e s from numerous groups and organizations in the community were involved in planning and discussing the logo and brand. These included the Summerland Chamber of

Commerce, the District of Summerland, the municipality’s Economic Development Strategic Action Committee, the Summerland Merchants’ Committee, the Community Cultural Development Committee, the Summerland Arts Council, the Summerland Museum, the Kettle Valley Steam Railway, Bottleneck Drive Winery Association,

agricultural attractions, resorts, hotels, motels and bed and breakfasts, the Summerland Ornamental Gardens, the municipal Parks and Recreation department and the Friends of the Ornamental Gardens. “It was a team effort, very well led by Brett,” said Arlene Fenrich, president of the chamber. Research showed there are nine types of

travellers who come to Summerland. The attractions are geared to those who are cultural explorers and authentic explorers. These individuals enjoy being off the beaten track and appreciate cultural immersion, historical and unstructured experiences. The community is also attractive to those who enjoy outdoor recreation.

Crews busy with snow by John Arendt

Heavy snowfall in recent weeks has kept municipal workers busy clearing the streets. Don Darling, director of public works for the municipality, said crews have put in more than 300 hours of overtime since the beginning of December to deal with the excess snow this winter. “It’s been a big task for them,” he said. “This is a unique snowfall season and

they’re doing the best they can to keep up.” Summerland has four plough trucks to clear and sand more than 500 lane-kilometres of road. Each section of the municipality takes around eight hours to clear and sand. “If it starts snowing again, we have to start all over again,” he added. Bus routes, collector roads and steep roads are cleared first, while flat residential areas are a

much lower priority. In the downtown core, crews are out early in the morning after more than

issue there. Sidewalks in front of municipal land are also cleared. Darling said the

“It’s been a big task for them. This is a unique snowfall season and they’re doing the best they can to keep up.”

7.5 centimetres has accumulated. The downtown remains a lower priority than other roads, since road clearing is not as much of a safety

snow clearing work is difficult, especially on some of the steeper streets. On some roads, he said, drivers must back down the road to sand it.

If they attempt to go forward and sand behind them, the unsanded roads are too slippery. Contractors are hired to clear the municipality’s parking lots, but Darling said few have the equipment needed for road clearing. Putting more municipal staff to snow clearing is also difficult since there are other areas where public works staff are needed in addition to road maintenance.

Dollar Store under new ownership by Sophia Jackson

Summerland’s Your Dollar Store with More is under new ownership. Allan Carter and Catherine Buffie took over the store in December after searching for a retail opportunity in a smaller town in the Okanagan. The couple have traveled extensively and both have years of customer service and sales experience. This is their first venture in Summerland and Catherine reports they have been overwhelmed by the warm welcome they have received from their customers: “People in Summerland really take their time to speak with you; they don’t just rush past,”she says.

Literacy event scheduled Plans in place by John Arendt

A literacy event later this month urges families to step away from electronic devices and take some time for play. From Jan. 22 to 26, the Summerland Library will hold Unplug and Play, a series of activities in conjunction with Family Literacy Day on Jan. 27. “We’re urging families to unplug and do something that doesn’t require power,” said librarian Sue Kline. During the week, those who visit the library are invited to solve a puzzle and enter a draw. There are prizes for all ages. “This is one simple way of reminding people they don’t need to be plugged in to read,” Kline said. Library patrons got a brief reminder of this in October, during a lengthy power outage. On Oct. 16, power in Summerland was out from 11:15 a.m. to 7 p.m. Kline said the library was open until 4:30 p.m. and patrons were inside reading until then. “As long as we had daylight, we had people in here,” she said. Over the past few years, the Okanagan Regional Library has had a marked increase in the number of e-books it

circulates, but print books remain popular. “Our circulation of paper books was up in 2012,” Kline said. In addition to the Unplug and Play promotion, the

library book club will hold its first meeting on Saturday, Jan. 19. The theme is A Poem Out Loud. Members will choose and read aloud from their favourite poems, beginning at 11 a.m.

Reading

Paige and Noah Russill enjoy books at the Summerland Library. The library will have its Unplug and Play initiative Jan. 22 to 26, in preparation for Family Literacy Day on Jan. 27.

The BC Services Card. Your CareCard, and more.

for academy

Continued from Page 1

International recruiting focus is on students entering Grade 9. It allows a base year to focus on any special educational needs including English as a second language to ensure students are prepared entering the Grade 10 to 12 graduation requirements. The 3,700 square metre educational facility is located on 6.9 hectares at the foot of Giants Head Mountain. The property includes a natural running trail around the perimeter, multipurpose court for tennis, basketball, ball hockey, a mountain bike course and a 930 square metre gymnasium with a rock climbing wall. “The owners have maintained the facility and grounds in pristine condition and the facility rounds out an important part of the overall BCYBLC vision for student athletes to move on to higher learning through sport,” said Harden. “We wanted flexibility in terms of classroom size, scheduling

and baseball programming. Given the modern technology of the school and provided student laptops, even while teams are on the road they can maintain their studies.” The existing sports field would be converted to a spring training type facility including outdoor baseball/softball practice fields and practice infield. Students would move indoors to the proposed Justin Morneau Athletic Centre once weather becomes inclement. The B C Y B L C advisory group has visited the school and proposed site, met with architects and visited Albertabased Sprung Structures facility to finalize design of the proposed Justin Morneau Athletic Centre. The advisory group has structured both baseball and softball core programming and scheduling. G. Craig Dunbar will be developing the school’s academic profile over the next two months. With more than 35 years experience in public and private educa-

tion, Dunbar brings strong organizational skills and experience to the academy. “We are extremely fortunate to work with Craig given his background and tenure with Glenfir private school. He is familiar with both the physical school and the independent setting. We could not have found a more suited person to lead us forward.” A scholarship program was launched Jan. 1. “Through the program it is hoped to provide 68 full board scholarships to the academy. Available scholarships would be open to Canadian resident high school student athletes. Depending on the success of the program, additional scholarships would extend to B.C. student athletes pursuing higher education through the sport.” Of the scholarships, 40 would be for baseball and 28 for softball. The BCYBLC also has a purchase option on 37 hectares on the Summerland-Princeton Road for a baseball legacy complex.

Road conditions blamed in accidents

One card. Many services. The new BC Services Card is part of government’s plan to modernize BC’s health care system. It replaces your CareCard, can be combined with your driver’s licence, and also acts as your photo ID. It’s more convenient and more secure, with enhanced features to protect your personal information. And getting yours is easy. Starting February 15, 2013, and for the next five years, you can simply enrol when renewing your driver’s licence. And even if you don’t drive, you can enrol at the nearest location where driver’s licences are issued. To learn more visit: BCServicesCard.ca

Treacherous road conditions because of heavy snow are being blamed in part for a motor vehicle accident injury north of Summerland last week. A passenger sedan and a oneton truck collided about 4 p.m. Jan. 8 on Highway 97 near North Beach Road. It took Summerland firefighters, using the Jaws of Life rescue equipment, nearly 20 minutes to free the driver of the car, a 39-year-old Kaleden man. According to Summerland assistant fire chief Chad Gartrell, the victim was pinned beneath the car’s dashboard when crews arrived at the scene. “The airbags had deployed and he was wearing his seatbelt but the whole dash was crushed in on him,” said Gartrell. “There was a lot of metal to take out. We had to remove both doors on the one side, cut out the centre post and then lift the dash up to get him out. You’re kind of taking the car away from the person. He was in shock, obviously, but he was conscious and talking.”

Once freed, the injured man, the lone occupant, was taken by ambulance to Kelowna General Hospital. He suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries. According to Const. Kris Clark of the Kelowna RCMP, the northbound truck spun twice and  crossed into the oncoming lanes where the southbound Pontiac Grand Prix struck the truck on the side. Both vehicles came to rest in the ditch on the west side of the highway. The unidentified truck driver suffered minor injuries. According to Gartrell, the deployment of air bags and improved vehicle design can have an impact on the seriousness of the injuries to vehicle occupants in the event of a such crash. “In the old cars from years ago, you are what took the brunt of the impact and in newer vehicles these days the car absorbs the impact the way it crumples,” he said. “In a situation like that the airbags work pretty good because it’s stopping you from getting that big cranial impact.”

Summerland Review Thursday, January 17, 2013

Kripps moving up the ranks Team Kripps (Canada #3) had a good showing in the seventh World Cup Bobsleigh races this past weekend in Koenigsee, Germany. Pilot Justin Kripps of Summerland paired up with veteran brakeman Lascelles Brown in the two-man and placed a very creditable 10th. (In the second heat they had the fastest start time of the whole event and placed eighth in the heat. This was the best yet two-man result for rookie driver Kripps, who has been improving each race and steadily moving up the ranks as he gains more

had a difficult race, placing 21st. The Canadian coaches had opted to send Canada #2 and #3 to St. Moritz (home of the upcoming World Championships) the previous week for some extra training because both Kripps and Spring have not driven this track before. This meant they missed World Cup #6 in Altenberg Germany. However spending New Years Eve in St. Moritz was an added bonus. Kripps, one of the youngest drivers on the World Cup circuit was also able to spend his 26th birthday in the glamorous Swiss Alps village. World Cup races resume next week in Igls, Austria, where Kripps hopes to build on his recent performances and secure a place in the World Championships.

#18 Cooper Holick

Cooper Holick was born in 1996 in Penticton and is currently attending Pen High. He started playing hockey in 1999 and is a rookie with the Summerland Steam this year. Cooper’s favourite hockey memory is high school hockey games. His favourite pregame meal is pancakes. His favourite movie is Step Brothers and his favourite song is Super Bass by Nicki Minaj. His favourite saying is “They may outsmart me, or be luckier, but they will never, ever outwork me.” In addition to hockey, Cooper likes Netflix, NHL 13, and Twitter (@Coop_Holick) He thinks the best thing about Summerland is the Steam.

Novice Jets battle to tie

The Summerland Novice Jet team fought a hard battle at Salmon Arm on the weekend. They ended up second in their pool and tied for fifth in the tournament. The third period of the final playoff game saw the team go from a 7-3 position to a 7-7 tie.

Novice Jets place in Salmon Arm Summerland Novice Jets played a hard-fought tournament at Salmon Arm on the weekend, ending up at 2-1-1. They placed second in their pool and  tied  for fifth overall.

They were down 7-3 in the  beginning  of the third period in the final playoff game and fought back to tie a  strong  North Okanagan team at 7-7. They showed great determination and

fortitude, as one of the coaches said. Goals were scored over the weekend by John Shaw, Andrew Mitchell, Holden Girard, Gavin Lodermeir, Sam Fortin and Jacob Becker. Lazar Michaud

and Sheldon Biggley fought hard in net and showed their  goaltending  skills to four upstanding teams. Lazar and Sheldon also showed great teamwork along with Eathan DunleyOwen, Trae Allen, Chet Gregg, Dylan

Low and Carson Hoey and helped keep their team in the game. The coaches, Joel Shaw, Kevin Lodermeier, Jamie Law and Paul Girard, have done a great job with the kids and the task of improving their skills.

SHAND, ELLEN BERTA (HAMES) Ellen Shand, a resident at Prairie Valley Lodge and formerly at Angus Place, Summerland, BC, died peacefully in her sleep early on January 11. She was in her 96th year. Born in Winnipeg, MB, 26 March 1917, Ellen grew up in Glenboro, MB, received her BA from Winnipeg’s United College (now the University of Winnipeg), and married George Shand in 1939. From the early 1940s until George’s retirement, they lived in Dryden, ON, Marathon, ON, and again in Dryden. In 1961 Ellen became an elementary and special education teacher, teaching in Marathon and Dryden until, in 1977, she and George moved to Summerland, BC. Along the way, Ellen and George produced five children: Skip (Patricia) of Toronto, ON; Terry (Michael Barrett, d.) of Owen Sound, ON; Judy (Donald Harbarenko) of Leduc, AB; Bruce, of New Westminster, BC; and Lois, of Duncan, BC. Ellen was predeceased by husband George (d.1988); her parents, Bert and Evelyn Hames; her sister Marie (Hames) Douglas; and, sadly, by three grandchildren. She is survived by her sister Betty (Hames) Schmitt of Springfield, Ohio, by her five children, seven grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren. She will be missed by all of them, and by her dear friends Laura Harris and Patricia Amundsen, of Summerland. Ellen loved to be outdoors with friends and family, especially on the beaches of Northern Ontario and the Okanagan. She loved words and games, and was never happier than when reading a fine book, watching curling, competing in the Angus Place shuffleboard league, solving crossword puzzles, or playing cut-throat Scrabble against her son Bruce. She was an active volunteer, teaching remedial reading and assisting with Meals on Wheels. A constant believer in social justice and peace, Ellen was an early supporter of the Voice of Women, Inter Pares, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, and a variety of environmental and health support groups. The family is very grateful for the loving care and consideration Ellen received from the superb staff at Prairie Valley Lodge. Those who wish to, are invited to make memorial donations to Inter Pares (221 Laurier Avenue, Ottawa, ON K1N 6P1) or to a charity of your choice.

Flu vaccines recommended Shots urged for caregivers and those at risk of serious illnesses by Barbara Manning Grimm It’s still worth getting a flu shot even though the height of the current flu season probably occurred around the end of Decem-

and physicians are reported, the number should be close to last year’s total of about 70,000. He recommends flu shots for anyone at risk for serious illness, such as those with heart or lung problems, as well as people taking care of them or living with them. In fact, he said anyone is welcome

“It would be worthwhile if you haven’t already had a shot.”

Dr. Peter Barss

ber and beginning of January. “It would be worthwhile if you haven’t already had a shot,” said Dr. Peter Barss, medical health officer for the Interior Health Authority. He said this flu season is a fairly typical one, with possibly higher numbers of cases than the average. Within the Interior Health Authority area, the number of immunizations is also similar to previous years. This year 62,000 shots have been administered by public health nurses. By the time the immunizations given by pharmacists

to get a flu shot, available under B.C. Medical Services Plan for those at risk and their caregivers, and for a fee for others. The shots are available at public health offices, doctors offices, pharmacies and some workplaces. Barss says tests have shown that people are infected

this year with an A strain of influenza as well as the H3N2 strain. This year’s shots immunize against those strains. The flu virus changes from year to year as it adapts to the human body, and developers of the vaccine try to predict which strains will be prevalent during each flu season. Besides immunization, Barss has other recommendations to prevent the spread of flu, which tends to happen when people are crowded together indoors. “Don’t cough in somebody’s face,” he said. Instead, a flu sufferer should direct a cough into a tissue or sleeve. People should wash their hands frequently, especially after touching common items such as doorknobs.
