Election night celebration

Liberal candidate Dan Ashton talks to supporters at his election-night headquarters at the Penticton Ramada Inn and Suites Tuesday night. He was declared the winner about 10 p.m. with half the polls reporting in. With him is daughter Chantal.

Ashton wins riding

Penticton mayor elected here while B.C. Liberals win fourth mandate by Steve Kidd and John Arendt

Dan Ashton started his election night off biting his nails. It wasn’t, though, because the B.C. Liberal candidate was nervous about the election, or even the results of the hockey game playing on the big-screen TV at the Penticton Ramada Inn, where friends and supporters were gathering to watch the election results come in. “I’ve got a hangnail I’m trying to get rid of,” said Ashton, who had put a hard day in working the phones and getting the vote out in the riding. He was successful and by 10 p.m. he had been

declared winner in the Penticton riding. Ashton, however, was cautious though happy at the news. “I sure hope the experts are right,” he said, commenting that only about half of the 184 polls in the riding had reported in so far. By the end of the evening, the trend shown in the earlier results continued. Ashton received support from 45.83 per cent of voters. Next was New Democratic Party candidate Richard Cannings with 40.3 per cent voter support. Sean Upshaw of the Conservatives received 9.25 per cent of the vote while Doug Maxwell of B.C. First received support from 4.62 per cent of voters. Ashton’s election mirrored what was happening across the province, with the polls in Pentic-

ton closer than expected earlier in the campaign. Ashton was still running neck and neck with NDP candidate Dick Cannings when a Liberal majority had been declared in B.C. By midnight, the Liberals were elected or leading in 50 of the province’s 85 ridings while the New Democrats were elected or leading in 33 ridings. One riding was won by an independent candidate and one went to the Green Party. The election is the fourth consecutive majority for the Liberals, who have formed the provincial government since 2001. From six months before the election, polling had indicated an NDP victory, though their margin narrowed to seven per cent as election day neared. See BYELECTION Page 3

Friday market considered The Summerland Chamber of Commerce is open to a Friday evening market in Summerland this summer, but the chamber will not coordinate such an initiative. Speaking to municipal council on Monday evening, chamber manager Christine Petkau said the board would like to see the Summerland

Merchants’ Group or a private vendor manage an evening market. “It wasn’t something we could take on within the chamber,” she said. At present, Summerland has a farmers’ market on Tuesday mornings. This market which continues through October, is privately managed.

Tourism in Summerland is continuing to bring visitors to the community, according to statistics from the Summerland Chamber of Commerce. Chamber manager Christine Petkau said there are around 9,000 visitors a year, according to records from the Visitor Information Centre. She added that

figures from the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association place the estimated value of tourism on Summerland’s economy at $50 million a year. For 2013, the chamber is working to develop a special tourism website, separate from the chamber’s existing website, to promote tourism opportunities and amenities.

Intergenerational experience

Summerland Middle School students and residents at Summerland Seniors Village have been meeting together over the past eight years. The intergenerational program started as a literacy project, with students reading to the seniors, but it soon became a social function and a time for dialogue between the students and seniors. There are 26 students and 15 seniors participating. Some of the residents of Summerland Seniors Village have been participating for the entire time the program has run.

Byelection needed for Penticton mayor Continued from Page 1

“I am too old to be surprised by any of this anymore,” said Liberal organizer Mark Ziebarth, speaking of the local race. “I am surprised that the Liberal party, in all 85 ridings, appears to be doing much better than anyone expected.” In Penticton, Ashton said he knew it was going to be a close vote after the writ had dropped and no Green candidate stepped forward

to run in the riding. No vote splitting on the left and B.C. Conservative Sean Upshaw drawing off about 10 per cent of the right-wing vote was definitely a bonus for NDP candidate Dick Cannings. “I knew it was going to be close here and it was close,” Cannings said as the votes were being calculated. “It was a very interesting race locally. We’re still waiting for the final results.”

B.C. First candidate Doug Maxwell said voters were reluctant to embrace his platform, which called for an end to party politics. “It’s difficult to put forward a new concept,” he said, but added that he plans to continue his message in the future. Conservative candidate Sean Upshaw said he had no regrets after the election. “My motives were to contribute to the good of the riding,”

he said. “I do wish the citizens of the riding well.” By late evening, after most of the votes had been counted, Ashton reflected on the work ahead as he prepares for his role in provincial politics. “My full attention will be on this riding,” he said. “I look forward to representing this riding in Victoria.” He said his team of volunteers and the voters helped to seal the victory for him.

Ashton’s victory means the City of Penticton will have one more election to deal with. Ashton took a leave of

absence from his position as mayor to run, and now plans to step down. City council will be meeting in the near future to decide

how and when the byelection will be handled, but Ashton has already agreed to pay the costs, up to an amount of $35,000.

The tone of debate The provincial election on Tuesday should be remembered not so much for the final outcome as for the way in which the campaigns and responses were conducted. The tone of dialogue locally was much more civil and restrained than in previous elections. Gone was much of the rhetoric which has accompanied many elections. As in past campaigns, some of the candidates, letter writers and others commenting chose to focus on a party’s record or a candidate’s previous public decisions or statements. Such comments are appropriate as long as they do not become broad generalizations or attacks on a candidate’s character. Personal attacks and negative campaigns, at any level, may help to reinforce a position held by party faithful, but they are ineffective in drawing voters from one party to another. Few if any will change their views because someone has ridiculed or belittled their position. The provincial election on Tuesday was not a foregone conclusion at the provincial level or in the riding of Penticton. Going into the election, there was no way of knowing which of the two dominant parties would win the riding or form the next provincial government. A lot was at stake for both the Liberals and the New Democrats. One does not need to look back many years to see examples of more highly charged elections and negative campaigns at the federal, provincial and municipal levels. Often, the adversarial tone would continue after the election as the resulting government, the public or both were polarized and divided on issues where compromise and dialogue were needed. We hope the campaign and pre-election discussion, as it played out in Summerland, is the way future elections will be conducted. Whether this happens will be seen the next time an election is held.

Once again, students from around British Columbia gathered in Summerland for the Good Will Shakespeare Festival. The festival is a celebration of all things theatrical and it shows the students the opportunities which exist for those interested in the arts. Some who have participated in the festival as students in the past have gone on to develop careers in the arts.

Things you can’t say in elections VICTORIA – Another election campaign has come and gone, with the ritual posturing of political parties and most news media searching for anything they can portray as a conflict. Now comes the time to wonder why not enough people cared, or informed themselves about the real problems of running this Tom Fletcher $40 billion corporation called the B.C. government. Why would they, when the whole thing is presented as a combination of beauty contest and sports event, with endless discussion of polls and “attack ads” and who’s ahead and what’s the score? Again we have seen the truth of former prime minister Kim Campbell’s observation that elections are no time to talk about serious issues. Indeed, there are some things you can’t speak of at all. Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm caused a stir at a candidates’ debate when he referred to constituents’ concerns that disabled children can cause difficulties in classrooms. He didn’t say classrooms should be segregated, although that’s a discussion worth having. He didn’t deny the need for more support for special needs kids. But his opponents immediately portrayed it that way,

and media seized on the conflict despite the factual inaccuracy. West Vancouver-Capilano MLA Ralph Sultan had a similar experience when he referred to his study of poverty in that affluent area. He noted that there was a high correlation between single parenthood and kids in poverty. Picking on single mums, his detractors exclaimed, and that’s what got reported. The B.C. Conservatives kicked their Boundary-Similkameen candidate out of the party because he wrote an article saying women shouldn’t choose to be single mothers. You can talk about child poverty, as long as you only discuss it based on federal statistics that do not measure poverty. Christy Clark started doing this as soon as she became B.C. Liberal leader, one of several issues where she dispensed with the facts and tried to copy a popular NDP stance instead. She was all about families, which can of course be single people, single parents or pretty well anything you want them to be. In fact the decline of the traditional family and the abdication of responsibility by many parents, fathers in particular, are central factors in the problem of poor and neglected children. But you can’t talk about that, at least not during elections. Whole areas of political dis-

cussion have devolved into euphemisms that are chosen because they can’t be defined. Everybody’s in favour of “affordable housing,” for instance. What they won’t admit is that this is code for subsidized housing, because then they would have to talk about how much the subsidy is, and who has to pay for it. Good grief, that might raise the question of whether the state should be taking money away from some people and giving it to others so they can live where they otherwise couldn’t afford to live. We even have rules preventing the media from reporting polls on election day. People might be influenced by this, you see. If you tell them Party X is far ahead, they might stay home and mow the lawn instead. If you tell them someone is making a comeback, they might change their vote because they want to be on the winning side, or the one that has “momentum.” Just like any other sport. The news media are steadily losing influence with the public. There are many factors involved, including the vast array of information sources that are available at most people’s fingertips. Another factor is treating the public like they’re idiots. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and


Residents of the South Okanagan know the Penticton Regional Hospital is badly in need of an expansion. The hospital is 62 years old and was built when the city and region had a much smaller population. The decision to expand the hospital should have been made as a matter of course, a way to address a present and future need. Instead, it became a campaign point in the provincial election. The specifics of health care delivery must not become political bargaining tools.

Hospital expansion to benefit economy by John Arendt An expansion to the aging Penticton Regional Hospital would provide a boost to the region’s economy as well as an improvement in

health care. The ambulatory care tower at the hospital has a projected cost of $300 million, with 60 per cent of the funding to come from the province and the rest from

regional taxpayers and the local hospital foundation. Mayor Janice Perrino, who is also the chair of the Regional Hospital District for the Regional District of Okanagan

Similkameen and the executive director of the South Okanagan Medical Foundation., said the expansion is badly needed. “The hospital is desperately outdated and needs to

be expanded,” she said. “This was built before televisions were in our homes.” At its peak, the expansion would provide 600 jobs. Once it is completed, the hospital would need to

The Early years

attract skilled, trained people to fill technical jobs resulting from the project. Around 40 per cent of the jobs will come from outside of Penticton. Perrino said she

will work to ensure the hospital tower will be constructed now that the provincial election is over. “It’s what is right for our region,” she said of the expansion.

Council report The regular meeting of municipal council was held on May 13 in council chambers. The mayor and all councillors were present.


Zoning amendment prepared

Municipal staff will prepare a zoning amendment to add Recreation Service Indoor as a permitted use in the CB1-Central Business Zone. The zoning change is needed to accommodate an applicant wishing to set up a fitness centre in the downtown area. Water rates adopted Council approved a plan for residential and commercial/industrial water rates. Mock bills, based on the proposed trial rates, will be sent until the end of September. In late October, an open house will be held to hear community opinion on the rates. The agricultural metered water rates will be delayed until 2014.


Fees and charges amended

Council gave first three readings to amend its fees and charges bylaw to reflect the revised development application fees. The previous fees were lower than the costs of providing the services. Even with the adjustments and increases, the fees are still equal to or lower than those charged in many other Okanagan communities.

Zoning change adopted

Crank it up and go

A zoning amendment at 26405 Garnett Valley Road was adopted. The zoning is amended from FG-Forestry Grazing to A2-Agricultural Large Acreage Zone. The bylaw first came before council in February.

Industrial zone added

Mr. and Mrs. Aoki and their sons, Nobukatsu and Masao, look like they are about to go somewhere. If it weren’t for the fact that the photo was taken in 1927, we’d have a suggestion for them. Since May is Asian Heritage Month and May 18 is International Museum Day, this is a great time to head over to the Summerland Museum and enjoy our new exhibit featuring the Japanese Community. The museum is open Wednesday to Saturday from 1 to 4 and there’s plenty of room to park.

Council gave first reading to a bylaw which will amend the zoning bylaw to create the M1-A Business Industrial Zone at 10918 Rennie St. A public hearing on the bylaw be held on May 27.

Regional tourism plan developed by Kevin Parnell Black Press As Gordon Fitzpatrick sits in his office at Cedar Creek Estate Winery, he watches out over an amazing view of Okanagan Lake and marvels at the spectacular area of the world he is operating his winery out of. Cyclists cruise by on their bikes as the sun pierces down and begins its rise toward the 30 degree mark, bringing more activity onto Okanagan Lake, filling up area golf courses and heating up the region known primarily for its great weather. “As I look out my window I just think what a wonderful playground we live in,” says Fitzpatrick, the 52-year-old president of Cedar Creek. “First of all the cli-

mate is unbelievable and with the lake and the mountains and the wine and the culinary scene, it’s all very exciting. We are turning heads internationally. But we have other world class tourism products in the region. The skiing, the golf, there are safaris where you can watch grizzly bears. There is the adventure tourism and ecotourism and the (cycling) gran fondos. It’s an extremely desirable place that most people don’t know about and that’s one of our challenges: We need to make people more aware of what’s here.” And that challenge is being taken on by the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association (TOTA), the regional tourism group that represents


A public service message from Bell, Jacoe & Company

Parents and Sports A vast majority of Parents who have children involved in sports are supportive, considerate and in it for the children. It is the exception to this rule that grabs the headlines. There has been a huge increase in the number of lawsuits involving Parents, Coaches and Leagues. Of those, most are initiated by unhappy Parents who feel that their child has been treated unfairly for one reason or another by their child's Coach. Thankfully, this unfair treatment rarely means physical or emotional abuse. The sad comment on our society is that more and more Parents are resorting to the courts to resolve issues that should not be anywhere near the court system. Somehow those Parents feel that a Coach (a volunteer in 99% of the cases) should be held responsible for huge damages because their child did not progress to the professional level and the unbelievable salaries that pro athletes receive these days. Many Coaches who have gone through this experience never volunteer again. It is truly a sad comment on our society.

the region’s 3,200 tourism operators. For the past two years TOTA has been working with all of its stakeholders, developing a new 10 year plan to help the tourism industry grow from what is now a seasonal industry to one that can sustain itself outside of the four month peak period. According to TOTA, every stakeholder that works in tourism and every jurisdiction in the region has signed off on the plan that asks for cooperation rather than competition amongst the tourism operators in the Thompson Okanagan. “We need tourism operators to see that the competition is not in the room or across the street but in fact the competition is in Arizona, or New Zealand or Australia,” says Glenn Mandziuk, the president and CEO of the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association. “There has to be a principle that in order to achieve success we need to work together. We need to package together and promote together because the goal is to get on the radar screen of visitors and get them to come to the area.”

In the office of the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association, Mandziuk points out a map of the region, one of six tourism regions in the province. It’s massive, roughly the size of Ireland, and its features span both ends of the spectrum, from the mountain peak of Mt. Robson, to the dessert climes of Osoyoos. TOTA represents 90 communities and hamlets, 28 First Nations groups and over 3,000 tourism operators. There are nine ski hills, almost 90 golf courses and 125 wineries. There are 15,000 full-time equivalent jobs in tourism in the region and it generates $1.75 billion in direct revenue each year, making it the largest economic sector in the Thompson Okanagan. “We have a very diverse product,” says Mandziuk. “From a geographic point of view it’s really amazing that you can have the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies all the way to a true dessert in Osoyoos. All of these areas are in different phases of their maturity. There are some areas that are generating full-on and some that are just emerging as tourism destinations.

We had to create a plan that resonated in every jurisdiction in the region.” Developing a new 10 year vision, TOTA had to take a hard look at the past tourism practices and how people outside of the region view the area. Focus sessions were held in Vancouver, Calgary and Seattle, asking them about the perception of the area. “We asked people their perception of the region for the past 15 years and the first word to come out of their mouths is that it’s hot,” says Mandziuk. “They don’t think of us as anything more than a place to go to the beach. We need to change their image. We need to deepen the story as to what we stand for as a region because we know we stand for a helluva lot more than ‘it’s hot.’” Another area TOTA looked at was revenue and Mandziuk says despite the fact that revenue was on the rise, 80 per cent of the money made in tourism is being made in just a four month period, leaving tourism operators not much chance to keep employees on during the soft, shoulder seasons. “The industry has been plagued by the

fact it is extraordinarily seasonal,” says Mandziuk. “It’s not sustainable in the sense that you can’t keep your labour year round, you can’t get funding from the bank for an expansion because they don’t know if you can pay your mortgage. We need to change the way we are doing business and we can do that by creating experiences.” Mandziuk says that by creating experiences that tourists want and marketing those experiences to a specific consumer (see sidebar), the region will become known for more than just heat in the next 10 years. Back at the Cedar Creek Estate Winery, Gordon Fitzpatrick is excited about several new ideas that will be unveiled this year by the winery and are designed to give visitors the experience of an authentic look at the wine making industry. A new vineyard trail called the Senator’s trail is named after Gordon’s father Ross, a retired Canadian senator who at 80 years of age, still walks the property

every morning. The trail will take people amongst the vines with guides and signage explaining the story of Cedar Creek. “That will be another level of experience and it will be authentic,” says Fitzpatrick. “It makes a big difference when you can kick the dirt and see where the grapes come from and provide interesting stories. We want to intrigue people with what we do. We have a lot of great stories to tell.” The telling of stories is one of the pillars of the new 10 year tourism industry. “We can’t keep promoting summer, sun and fun,” said Mandziuk. “While that’s important and we can’t lose that, we need to add a new dimension to our marketing and our product developments. The exciting thing is people are embracing it and that’s because the timing was right. The biggest thing is if we work as a collective around this for the next 10 years our image will change.”

Tourism plan highlights

The Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association’s new 10 year strategy is called Embracing Our Potential and lays out five key experience based themes that tourism operators are asked to work towards. 1. Identify the Iconic. What are the iconic experiences that Thompson Okanagan is known for and set it apart from other areas of the world? 2. Enhancing local flavours. The relationship between world class chefs, wine and spirits and local produce makes the Okanagan prime territory for tourists looking for a farm to table experience. 3. Revealing the story. Allow tourists to learn and absorb the history and the modern culture of the region. 4. Expanding personal horizons. Tourists are seeking enriching opportunities to learn and have interactive experiences. 5. Building authenticity. This allows tourists to understand a destination’s culture, heritage, history and identity through authentic experiences. The plan also identifies three specific types of tourists that tourism operators should market to. 1. Free spirits. 18 to 34-year-olds with higher than average income that are driven, open minded, fun loving, spontaneous and adventurous. 2. Cultural explorers. 35 to 54-year-olds with average income that are highly motivated, risktakers, socially responsible and easy-going. 3. Authentic experiencers. 55 or older with average income that are environmentally conscious, ethical, independent and open-minded. You can find out more about TOTA’s strategy online at

Taxes in Summerland will increase by two per cent his year, with the bulk of that increase going to pay higher costs for policing services. On Monday evening, council gave the first three readings to a pair of budget bylaws, approving the five-year financial plan and the tax rate for 2013. Municipal administrator Tom Day said holding to a two per cent tax increase was difficult, since the new RCMP service contract alone added 1.5 per cent to the budget. Coun. Bruce Hallquist said the municipal finance committee worked hard to keep the budget within the parameters defined. The tax increase means taxes on an average home, with an assessed value of around $400,000, will increase by $17.93 this year.

Mayor Janice Perrino said the tax increase was needed in order to meet the municipality’s day-to-day expenses without dipping into reserve funds. “I will not put our future into debt,” she said. “Taking reserves to pay our bills is taking from our future.” While the municipality has reserve funds, those funds are for special pro-

Summerland to celebrate Bike to Work Week It will be a celebration of pedal power as Summerlanders participate in the community’s first Bike to Work Week May 27 to 31. During the week, Summerlanders are urged to get out their bicycles and ride to work, school, errands and appointments. “Summerland has a growing cycling network, including shared bike lanes and off-road pathways for residents to make efficient links to all areas of the community” said Julie McGuire, planner with the District of Summerland. Cycling in Summerland is a good option for both transportation and recreation. There are plenty

of benefits from cycling, including exercise, money savings and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. “Motor vehicles are the biggest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions in Summerland at 64 per cent of total community emissions,” McGuire said. “If you’re looking for an easy way to help the environment, consider riding your bike instead of driving your car this week.” On Tuesday, May 28 from 7 to 9 a.m., bicycle commuters are invited to stop at the south parking lot at Municipal Hall, 13211 Henry Ave., for coffee from Backyard Beans and goodies from True Grain

Funding theatre

Flanked by theatre students from Summerland and across British Columbia, Herlinda Burt of the Summerland Credit Union presents a cheque for $1,690 to the Good Will Shakespeare Festival. The money is to sponsor one of the workshops.

Chamber funding fell short When a $19,800 HRDC grant was not approved, the Summerland Chamber of Commerce had to make tough decisions to meet its 2012 budget. The total budget was set at $313,430, with $200,000 coming from the municipality. While provincial grants were higher than expected, the loss of the HRDC grant meant the chamber’s total funding for the year came

to $303,906, or 97 per cent of the budgeted amount. Expenses came to $304,830, chamber manager Christine Petkau told municipal council on Monday evening. This is a shortfall of $924. She said the HRDC grant was to pay for summer students to staff the Visitor Information Centre on Highway 97. Petkau said the chamber took a careful look at its figures in order to find the

money to hire summer students. In addition, she said businesses were asked to increase their level of sponsorship for the annual Festival of Lights. For this year, the chamber ’s budget includes a $10,000 HRDC grant, but Petkau said even if the grant is not approved, the chamber will still ensure the centre is staffed.

We use our teeth everyday so it is reasonable to expect that they would wear down over time. However chewing only accounts for wear at a rate of about 1 mm every 100 years. Most of us would not be able to notice 1 mm wear on our teeth, so you have likely worn your teeth more than average (I am guessing you haven’t had your 100th or 200th birthday yet). There are a few reasons we experience teeth wear. Most damage to the enamel (or outer protective layer) is done during the day. We clench or squeeze our teeth together when we are concentrating which can cause enamel loss. This often becomes a habit that we are unaware of and can result in several mm of tooth loss. Once we lose that enamel, our bite changes and as a result, also our joint. Some adapt easily to this change and have no pain, while others do not adapt well and can experience both muscle and joint pain as well as continued tooth damage. Teeth can also wear down at night through grinding, although the amount of force that we exert on our teeth at night is a lot less so the damage we see is usually a lot less. Night grinding can be caused by an airway issue (or difficulty breathing at night). The options of treatment for tooth wear can be as easy as a night guard, filling in missing enamel, orthodontics to prevent further wear, or crowns to rebuild missing enamel. Finding out why the enamel was lost will determine what treatment is best suited for you. 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!

Blues tour includes Summerland concert During the past two years, the popular Girls with Guitars Tour put a thoroughly feminine stamp on the Blues Caravan. But it’s time to reshuffle the cards. On the latest edition of the annual tour presented by Ruf Records, a couple of rough-and-tumble guitarists from North America will go head-to-head with a dynamic British female singer and guitar player whose every show is a display of raw and emotional power. Rest assured: When this trio of hard-nosed pros step into the ring, they won’t be pulling any punches. Canadian Jimmy Bowskill was discovered by bluesman Jeff Healey at the age of 11. He has toured Europe several times and delivered a strong debut for Ruf Records with his 2012

release Back Number. While he started out as a traditional blues stylist, he has since moved progressively toward classic rock. His trio has supported acts like Jeff Beck, Joe Bonamassa and Wishbone Ash, but he no longer needs to ride on anyone’s coattails. “The music I make now has a more rocking sound than the more traditional stuff. But to me it’s just my take on the blues,” Bowskill said. “I’m in my early 20s and full of energy, so of course my music will have a different edge to it.” Bart Walker, whose 2012 debut album Who I Am has been well-received by critics, adds a downhome, earthy touch to the Caravan lineup. At the 2012 International Blues Challenge, this Nashvillebased guitar standout

took home the coveted Best Guitarist honours. In recent years, he’s provided brilliant support to countryrocker Bo Bice while honing his skills as a writer of powerful songs full of southern flair. Former Stevie Ray Vaughan band member Reese Wynans was so impressed with Walker’s talents as a singer, songwriter and guitarist that he promptly decided to join his band. “When I saw Bart Walker, I saw something special, so I jumped at the chance,” Wynans said. Joanne Shaw Taylor, the only girl with a guitar on this year’s tour, is no stranger to the Blues Caravan. The 2009 tour was an important step in her budding career. Hailing from England, Taylor now resides in Texas and


it was there that she perfected her brand of spirited, hard rocking blues on the recently released Almost Always Never. “I started playing little clubs in the UK when I was 14 or 15. But the sound of this album is a better representation of what I always wanted to be as an artist,” said Taylor, who recently played lead guitar for Annie Lennox at the Diamond Jubilee Concert for Queen Elizabeth II. The album, her third for Ruf, has solidified her standing as the shooting star of modern blues. The musicians will tour Canada from May 17 to June 2. They will perform at Centre Stage Theatre in Summerland on Monday, May 27. For more information including current tour dates, go to: www.bluescaravan. com.

MAY LONG WEEKEND DEADLINES For Thursday, May 23rd edition Display Advertising Deadline: Friday, May 17th, 12 noon Classifieds Deadline: Friday, May 17th, 3:00 p.m.

School board adopts preliminary budget Efforts made to address $1.5M shortfall The Okanagan Skaha School Board has cut its budget and dipped into accumulated savings and reserves in order to address a $1.5 million budget shortfall. On Monday, the school board adopted its 2013-2014 preliminary operating budget. In order to meet the shortfall, the district relied on

accumulated savings and reserves of $900,000 and further budget cuts of around $600,000 “Our long-term planning strategy has again allowed us to mitigate the effects of a funding shortage; however, reductions to services and programs are still necessary this year,” said Ginny Manning, chair of the school board. The reductions include reductions to the gifted program,

the deaf/hard of hearing teacher, helping teachers, behaviour program, supply, equipment and travel budget cuts, maintenance and custodial cuts, reductions to clerical staff and administration reductions. The school district is estimating the largest drop in enrolment in recent years, which will lead to further funding shortfalls. A separate Learning Improvement

Fund will be available once again this year. The fund provides additional resources to support challenging learning conditions. The plan for this fund must be completed by Oct. 15. “I am pleased that the Learning Improvement Fund will again be available this year and we will be able to add staffing and resources to educationally challenging areas,” Manning said.

Advance poll turnout rises by Tom Fletcher Black Press VICTORIA – With advance polls open for four days and a push by political parties to use them, turnout by early voters jumped 28 per cent for today’s election, compared to the 2009 B.C. election. But that election ended up with an all-time low turnout of only 51 per cent of eligible voters, confirming a trend in

other jurisdictions that heavy advance voting does not indicate increased voter interest. Elections BC reports that 380,741 votes were cast in advance polls at the 85 constituencies around B.C. That’s about 12 per cent of the more than three million people eligible to vote in the province. Heaviest turnouts were reported in Comox Valley, Vernon-Monashee, Penticton, Saanich North and the Islands, Oak Bay-Gordon

Head and Parksville-Qualicum. Elections BC also provides for absentee voting, where any eligible voter can vote at any polling location by writing the name of their preferred candidate on a blank ballot. Voting by mail is also an option, with voting packages available up to 4 p.m. on election day. They must be returned to a district electoral office by 8 p.m.

SPCA to hold open house The South Okanagan/Similkameen Branch of the B.C. SPCA will hold an animal-themed day of fun on Saturday, May 25. The event, presented by Hill’s Science Diet, will run from 1 to 4 p.m. at the South Okanagan/ Similkameen SPCA, 2200 Dartmouth Dr., Penticton.

Highlights include educational displays, shelter tours, free nail trimming, bake sale, professional photos of you and your pet and a barbecue. The branch will also promote the joy of pet guardianship over the weekend, May 24 to 26, with half-price adoption fees on all cats, kittens and rabbits.

“We’re also asking members of the community to help animals in need by dropping off urgently needed items for the shelter,” says Lorie Chortyk, general manager of community relations for the B.C. SPCA. Chortyk says the open house event is an opportunity for people to meet the

animals available for adoption and to have fun learning more about how to help animals in the community. “We are really excited to continue our ongoing partnership with the B.C.  SPCA for the Annual Open House series,” says Brian Howard, general manager for Hill’s Canada. 


Summerland Review Thursday, May 16, 2013

Softball teams host tournament This weekend the U19 Summerland Scorch coached by Joe Cutt and U14 teams coached by Tom Nelson and Dave Martin hosted 24 softball teams from all over the province. Both the U19 and the U14 teams started playing Saturday morning at 8 a.m. at the Dale Meadows Sports Complex. The U19 Scorch played the Port Moody Magic to start. Both teams played well with Port Moody winning a 9-8 heartbreaker. The Scorch played Fleetwood Bandits next, which was a little lopsided and not for Summerland. Their next game was against Salmon Arm. Summerland was ahead when the game was called as two Salmon Arm girls had heat stroke. The final game for Scorch were North Delta Misfits. Again the girls had a lot of good hits and caught but came up short losing 10-8 . The U19 team’s schedule was difficult as the teams that beat them ended up second, third and fourth in the round robin portions of the tournament. The other teams advancing to the playoffs were West Kootenay, White Rock/Surrey and Chilliwack. West Kooteney advanced to the final defeating Chilliwack while Port Moody and Fleetwood advanced to play for the right to play West Kootenay. Port Moody defeated Fleetwood but it took them the full hour and a half to do it. Port Moody and West Kootenay played five hard fought innings with

Port Moody winning 9-8 for first place. The U14 team coached by Tom Nelson played West Kelowna to begin, with lots of good action. The girls could not catch West Kelowna and were defeated 21-12. As hard as they tried, they did not have any luck this weekend as they were defeated in all of their games. Dave Martin’s U14 team did not fare any better, but his first game was close which made both girls and coach happy as they are just starting the year. The Cawston, Penticton, Prince George

and Trail teams all advanced to the playoffs for the U14. Cawston defeated Penticton in the Semi to advance and Trail advanced beating Prince George. Prince George and Penticton played for third place which Prince George won while Cawston and Trail played five innings with Cawston placing first and Trail placing second. The next action for the Summerland Scorch U19 team is on June 15 and 16 as they will host the District 9 playoffs for the U16 and U19 divisions, which will lead to the provincials in July.

As amazing as it may seem we have 11 major runs and races scheduled for Summerland in 2013. Wow, what a week of warm weather, we just had two major girls’ softball tournaments that brought more than 45 teams to our community from all over the province. The month of May signals the start of an amazing series of runs and races that are available for a variety of participants from the very fit to those wanting to be out with their family. It all started with the Giant’s Head Hill Climb cycling race on May 4 and special appreciation to Art VanKooy who made the race happen. Art is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, and many have met Art at the Bike Barn making sure your bikes are in excellent shape. We are in full swing organizing the

grand-daddy of them all — The Giant’s Head Run and Man of Steel Triathlon. I wonder whether people like Doug Thring, Ellen Lloyd and Jim Riccuiti thought 31 years ago their event would still be going strong today. I’ve always been amazed when our neighbouring communities are complimentary about our family and community involvement in the Action Festival Races (just a reminder that now is the time to register for both the Giant’s Head Run and Man of Steel Triathlon). You can enter online at www. or download an entry form at or pick one up at the Aquatic Centre. There are still eight major runs and races to follow during the summer and fall season. They include the GranFondo which weaves

Major races and runs planned Leisure Times

Dale MacDonald its way through the South Okanagan and another event unique to the Okanagan, the Ride the Giant longboard race schedule for the August long weekend at Giant’s Head Park. This event garners worldwide exposure with competitors from all over North America. In 2012, Ride the Giant was filmed by the Discovery Channel. Ultraman will finish in Summerland on the August long weekend and don’t forget the Summer-

land Orca Sprint Triathlon and Kids of Steel Race on the September long weekend at Peach Orchard Park. Other events include a new race, the Steve King 100-kilometre classic held Sept. 24 and a full Cross Country Race held Oct. 6. Of course we can’t forget the Terry Fox Run the second week of September and the Test of Humanity Mountain Bike Race the third week of September. I will try to get everyone more information as all these events get closer but what an amazing set of races for a community the size of Summerland. Dale MacDonald has been Summerland’s Director of Parks and Recreation for the last 22 years and in his sporting past has won provincial championships in four different sports.

The Quest Society of Summerland is on a quest to welcome new members to help raise funds to improve the lives of the deaf, hard of hearing and speech impaired and to aid youth in the reduction of hearing loss. The group is a non-profit women’s service society for all ages, occupations and nationalities. Members meet the third Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. in the lounge at Parkdale Place Lodge. Quest members become involved in the life of our community. The organization provides social and service opportunities and gives a better understanding of its problems. Not only will it give a sense of fulfillment, but the knowledge that the efforts of every member really count. Members strengthen Quest by lending

their talents and special skills where they are needed. There are several Quest fundraisers including a Summerland Garden Tour held every alternate year, a Toonie Tree Raffle and new this year a bridge tournament with lunch to be held on Sept. 21st at the IOOF Hall. The annual spring yard sale is held at the IOOF hall on Main Street. Since 1997, Quest has raised more than $108,000 to benefit Summerland women and children in need and people with hearing and speech challenges. Recently, the organization has been approached by several local people who have used hearing aids they wish to donate to other Summerlanders who may not be able to afford new hearing aids. Quest is currently negotiating with a service club to see if it is viable to refurbish these hearing aids and pass them on to people in need. Centre Stage has a special hearing system to enable those
