An 11-year-old girl at the Summerland Pro Bullriding Stampede on Saturday evening was injured in a pellet gun mishap during the intermission. A woman on horseback was shooting at balloons when Calista Stafford, who was sitting on a fence at the grounds, felt a sudden pain in her right hip. When she looked down and saw the blood from the wound, she realized she had been shot. “I felt really, really scared,” she said. “I thought I was going to bleed so much. I was shaking.” Her father, Gene Stafford, carried her to the St. John Ambulance station on site where the pellet was removed and she was cleaned up. He then took his daughter to the Penticton Regional Hospital where she was treated and then released. Gene Stafford said the pellets should not have been used and the gun should not have been fired at the crowd. “I can’t believe the stupidity,” he said. “They were firing at a crowd with a projectile. If you’re going to shoot at a target, use something else.” The pellets used are designed for hunting small game. The container in which they are packaged contains a warning label. “Air guns are not toys.

Pellet shot

Calista Stafford, 11 years old, shows an air gun pellet of the same size as the one which injured her during the bull riding competition at the Summerland Rodeo Grounds on Saturday evening. The lead pellet, designed for hunting, did not damage internal organs but left Stafford in a lot of pain.

May cause serious injury or death. Be careful — shoot safely!” The lead pellets can also cause serious health problems. Gene Stafford said the pellet could have resulted in significant damage to internal organs if it had

followed a slightly different path. The injury did not require stitches, but Calista Stafford is in pain and moving slowly as she recovers from the shot. Sgt. Stephane Lacroix of the Summerland RCMP detachment said

police are investigating the incident. He said the rider appears to have fallen when the shot occurred. “It appears to be accidental,” he said. “It’s just an unfortunate incident.” The shot was reported

to police by the Stafford family the day after the rodeo. Police are continuing to talk to witnesses. Matt Darmody, organizer of the Summerland Pro Bullriding Stampede, could not be reached for comment by press time.

Wharton Street project delayed by John Arendt

A year has passed since the papers were signed for the multistorey Wharton Street development but construction has not yet started. The documents for the multistorey development were signed

a year ago, on Aug. 16, 2012. At the time, Randy Gibson, one of the developers, said the target for groundbreaking was February, 2013 with the completion of the first building expected early in 2014. The project’s value was estimated at between $90 and $120

million. Municipal planner Ian McIntosh said the proponent of the project, Danny Nonis, had serious health problems in early spring and as a result, the entire project was put on hold. Nonis is now recovering and the municipality will soon learn

the status of the project. “They’re very keen about this project,” McIntosh said of Nonis and the other developers. Because of the scale of the project and because it involves municipal land the time frame is lengthy. See DEVELOPMENT Page 3

Police to set roadblocks for bush party

An angry bull

Rodeo workers attempt to distract an angry bull as bull rider Marlon Williams leaves the ring on Saturday evening. Williams, of Mount Currie, was one of more than 30 bull riders competing in the event at the Summerland Rodeo Grounds.

Development has been considered before Continued from Page 1

This is the third time a proposal for the municipallyowned property on Wharton Street has come before municipal council. The Meiklejohn proposal and Mike Rink’s proposal both did not proceed.

While Rink had expressed interest in the project, an agreement was not signed. That plan expired in January, 2011. The property was re-evaluated on March 28, 2011. Once a development begins on the property, McIntosh

expects other projects to follow. “I think it’s going to be a catalyst for a lot of development in Summerland,” he said. Mayor Janice Perrino said she is wait-

ing for the project to proceed. “I’m anxious to see this go forward, but I’m just as pleased there’s not a hole in the ground,” she said. If the project should come to an

end now, she said the municipality would seek another developer. “It will happen,” she said. “It’s just not happening as quickly as any of us would like.”

HUNTERS HILL As interest continues to grow in the Hunters Hill Neighbourhood Plan process underway in Summerland, the opportunities for public input are still available, and we continue to encourage your questions and comments.

Some Hunters Hill Conversations 1) “You mean the 156 acres is not in the ALR?”

Providence

That’s right, and because the 156 acres is not in the ALR, applications to REMOVE land from the Agricultural Land Reserve are not required, and that’s a good thing!

250-493-1774

2) “Is there any arable land on Hunters Hill?”

“Every Life Tells A Story”

Due to the

Labour Day Holiday The will be closed:

Yes, some portions of Hunters Hill may offer viable growing conditions, so the neighbourhood plan may offer more than just another neighbourhood of residential housing.

3) “So, Hunters Hill is just across from Sumac Ridge?”

“Yes, and because Hunters Hill is across from Sumac Ridge Estates (Winery, Golf & Housing), there are some pretty amazing views out over vineyards and Okanagan Lake!”

4) “What about walking trails and hiking trails for the Hunters Hill area?”

Our professional planners are considering the possibility of trails for parts of the Hunters Hill Area Plan.

As some high school students are preparing for the annual back-toschool bush party, Sgt. Stephane Lacroix of the Summerland RCMP detachment said police will have roadblocks in place before and after the event. “We certainly don’t support it and we recommend parents don’t send their kids to it,” Lacroix said of the annual party. The bush party occurs outside of the detachment’s coverage area, but the police will have roadblocks in place before the event begins and after it is over. The bush parties, which are held at the

start and end of the school year, are not school-sanctioned events. Lacroix said the parties have the potential to turn tragic. “If you mix alcohol and drugs, bad things happen,” he said. In June, 2011, following a similar bush party in Penticton to mark the end of the school year, a 16-year-old student was stabbed and killed. A 19-year-old man was held in custody following the incident.

EDITORIAL

our pick

Delayed development The Wharton Street project, a proposed multi-storey, multi-phase development near Summerland’s downtown, has the potential to spur some much needed economic growth. That’s why any delay in the process is cause for concern. A year ago, on Aug. 16, 2012, the Memorandum of Understanding document was signed for the project. At the time, developers expected to have the groundbreaking in February and the first building completed early in 2014. All this was put on hold when the proponent of the project had serious health problems earlier this year. A delay for this reason is understandable, but it is still frustrating for those who are waiting on this project. The developers remain interested in proceeding with the project, although the timeline is changing. For those who have lived in Summerland for the last decade, the delay brings back memories of an earlier development proposal for the same site. Mike Rink, a Kamloopsbased developer had expressed interest in the project, although an agreement was not signed. His plan expired in January, 2011. For years, the idea of a development on the site has been discussed. In addition to providing housing just steps from the downtown core, the development would provide new and larger spaces to house the Summerland branch of the Okanagan Regional Library and the Summerland Museum. Both facilities are operating out of cramped quarters. The need for this development or something similar has not gone away. If anything, it is more pressing now than it was a few years ago, when the concept was first presented. We do not wish to see the project rushed. It is important enough to demand a careful, thorough approach. Still, the waiting is not easy for any of us.

Summerland and Toyokoro, Japan have had an official sister city agreement in place since 1996. Over the years, Toyokoro residents have visited Summerland and Summerlanders have visited Toyokoro numerous times. Next month, another Summerland delegation will visit Toyokoro. For both communities, the cultural benefits alone make the relationship worth preserving.

Pressure on for skills training VICTORIA – Advanced Education Minister Amrik Virk has offered some advice for students heading for post-secondary education this fall. In a commentary sent to B.C. newspapers, Virk reminded students that his task “is to ensure postsecondary students obtain the experience and qualifications needed to put a paycheque in their Tom Fletcher back pocket.” B.C. is forecast to have one million jobs to fill by 2020, through a combination of retirements and economic growth. More than 40 per cent of them will require trades and technical training, and for students, likely a move north. “My advice to students is to look at where the jobs are based and tailor their education and training to match,” Virk wrote. “Our population is concentrated in the Lower Mainland and southern Vancouver Island, but as a resource-based economy, many directly and indirectly related jobs are located elsewhere.” That’s not the only blunt message for students deciding on a career. While defending his ministry’s spending plans in the recent legislature session, Virk described some of the problems that are entrenched. Parents, particularly in immigrant communities, push their children towards medi-

cine, law, dentistry or engineering, he noted. Students themselves gravitate toward areas that are familiar to them, such as teaching. B.C. universities graduated 2,000 new teachers last year. Another 850 arrived from out of province and were licensed to teach in B.C. During the same year, the B.C. school system hired 800 teachers. And many of those jobs were outside metropolitan areas. It’s been hammered into us by the B.C. government’s endless “jobs plan” advertising, and a similar campaign by Ottawa, that more students need to focus on trades and resource industries. Virk acknowledges that his budget contains another $1 million for advertising, the same as last year, much of it to reinforce the need to fill skilled jobs. But he danced around the question of whether there will be spaces in technical programs. NDP critics say the waiting list for these kinds of programs at Kwantlen University and B.C. Institute of Technology are running between a year and three years. And they have frequently noted that advanced education spending is budgeted to decline by $42 million over the next three years. Virk said post-secondary institutions working with industry have produced 456 additional seats in highdemand programs for this year. It’s a start.

In July, Premier Christy Clark joined the chorus of premiers protesting Ottawa’s plan to claw back $300 million in federal training money to provinces, for its new employer-driven Canada Jobs Grant. Clark and New Brunswick Premier David Alward were assigned to find an alternative to this drastic shift and report back in the fall. As usual, the NDP spent lots of time grilling Virk about student debt and the alleged need to reduce it. Ministry statistics show that about 30 per cent of students take out loans from the federalprovincial program, and the average is $20,000. One of the latest changes is a program of grants that go toward student debt as a reward for those who complete their chosen program. With 23,000 students collecting $41 million in grants, it might be working. For all the fuss about student debt, students pay only about a third of costs. The rest is on taxpayers, whether it produces any useful education or not. Virk is under instructions to review the student loan program “to find further improvements to meet students’ needs.” Given the magnitude of the gap between what skills our education system produces and what the economy needs, a larger shift in priorities is needed.

bad apples A shooting incident during the intermission at the bull riding competition resulted in an injury, but it could have been far worse. A pellet, fired by a performer during the intermission, struck and wounded an 11-year-old girl. Had the gun been fired in a slightly different direction, it could have resulted in much more serious injury. Measures must be taken so something like this cannot happen in the future.

Trail open to all people, not all uses

Dear Editor: As a response to the Summerland ATV Club’s letter “Motorized vehicles on trail” in last week’s Review, we would like to offer the views of the Summerland Trans Canada Trail Society. We agree with Philip Young that the trail is for all people, however it is not meant for all uses. Owners of quads and dirt bikes are welcome to hike and cycle the Trans Canada Trail. But we ask them to enjoy riding their machines on the extensive network of motorized trails in our region that are clearly separated from the TCT and KVR trails. The KVR part of the Trans Canada Trail was presented as a provincial “Rails to Trails” strategy in 1991. That’s when the rails were taken out. Until then, the CPR declared that it was illegal to trespass on these tracks. The commitment to non-motorized use was reaffirmed with the Spirit 2010 campaign (www.spirit2010.net.) This commitment is supported by the Government of Canada, Trails BC, the TCT, the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen and the Chambers of Commerce throughout the Okanagan Valley. It is true that the

Summerland TCT Society does not own the trail, but we have paid for and signed a stewardship agreement with the provincial government for the stretch over crown land, which goes from the municipal boundary part way to Faulder and to 1.5 km east of Osprey Lake. The rest of the trail within the municipality is managed by agreement with the municipality. We have done most of the fund-raising for

the parts within the municipality. For the other portions, we have received donations and money from the national Trans Canada Trail Foundation. Why are so many people against ATVs and dirt bikes on the KVR and TCT trails? Here are some of the complaints that we have heard numerous times: o Noise and dust near our drinking water and properties along Trout Creek.

o Danger from speeding vehicles through blind curves and narrow sections. o Destruction of trail surfaces by ATVs with deeply ridged tires that act like grinders. Dirt bikers cause huge ruts doing “wheelies”. o Damage to BC’s fledging trail-based tourism industry. Prosperous tourism operations exist along non-motorized trails around the world. Tourists coming to the Okanagan

expect the same highquality, safe and quiet trails for their enjoyment. We understand that there are competing interests and hope that the provincial dispute resolution process will be successful. Hopefully we can work out a solution for the District of Summerland and do better than Naramata, where the Working Group failed to secure a mandate for all motorized users

of the trails and the carefully worked-out compromise was not accepted by the citizens of Naramata. Available government funding has been frozen until a new compromise can be worked out. In summary: the Summerland TCT Society has dedicated itself to building and maintaining a very specific 47 kilometres long set of trails between Summerland and Osprey Lake. We do not claim

ownership, but we are the recognized stewards providing safe, enjoyable use for ALL non-motorized trail enthusiasts. Nearby, there are hundreds of kilometres of trails available for motorized use. Let’s keep the two uses separate. Visit www.summerlandtrails.ca for more information. Marilyn Hansen Henry Sielmann former and current presidents TCT Society Summerland

Now that the third roundabout and accompanying roadwork is complete, the municipality will be turning its attention to the Garnett Valley area. Maintaining our roads is a never ending process. In the 1940s roadwork was also a necessity and though the equipment was not quite as technically advanced as today’s machinery, the fuel costs were significantly lower. In this photo, John Manning and his co-worker are levelling a road near the Experimental Farm using a four-horsepower grader, fueled by hay.

Dog loved by many Dear Editor: Malibu was a three-year-old Great Pyrenees dog. Her life began on a farm in Saskatchewan but her owner moved to the Okanagan and she was given to a Summerland family in late November. Three days in her new home she escaped. For the next nine months, this lovely white dog roamed Summerland. She’d be seen in Trout Creek then, in what seemed a blink of the eye, way out on Garnet Valley Road. She had no interest in a human bond, and surprisingly, also did not appear to connect with livestock or other animals. While we received a great many calls from people spotting Malibu, we never once received a com-

plaint that she was causing problems. Not a complaint of tearing open garbage. Not a complaint of stealing food. Nothing. People really tried hard to make friends with her but nothing seemed to work. Finally I sent out a request via Facebook asking everyone to stop feeding her. There was no doubt she was getting food from somewhere, but I had no idea where. The problem with people being so kind is that she could not be attracted by food. Try as we might, we just could not catch Malibu. I had people tell me to leave her alone – she wasn’t hurting anyone. They loved to see the majestic Malibu roaming and living life the way she

wanted to. Some people could not be convinced of the dangers of the life she was living. “So what!”, they’d say. “She’s happy”. On Aug 3, late at night, I received the news I’d been expecting for nine months. A dog had been hit by a vehicle on the highway. We rushed out right away but when we arrived, I could see that poor Malibu was suffering dreadfully and asked the police officer to put her down, to end her pain. With a heavy, burdened heart, I made the announcement on Facebook, and by telephone, to everyone who loved Malibu. Frustrated – so completely frustrated — that the outcome was exactly as I knew it would be.

i

O

Devastated that none of us would ever feel the joy of “saving Malibu” and helping her into a new life. There were a great many people in Summerland that truly loved Malibu. To them I extend my deepest condolences. I am filled with gratitude for the people that cared enough to try catch her, to try to help me get her to safety. To both sets of Malibu’s previous owners, I’m sorry it ended this way. I’d like to thank those who donated toward Malibu’s cremation, and to Critteraid who is placing a granite stone on the Critteraid Farm, and where we will plant a tree in memory of her.

Bull riding

Nick Smith of Peachland was one of more than 30 top bull riders who competed at the Summerland Rodeo Grounds on Saturday evening. The bull riding event drew a full crowd.

Signs counter-intuitive Dear Editor: When reviewing what signage on Highway 97 is needed to point out where downtown and the beaches are, it should

be taken into consideration that it was decided some time ago that Summerland as a community is interested in going  green.

If that is so, electronic signage would be counter-intuitive and a pretty poor example. Sue Cooper Summerland

Ask Your Dentist...

Q

I noticed you had some new mint and gum samples in the office. Your hygienist told me they were good for my dry mouth. Are they better than water? Sandy

Dr. Cindee Melashenko

A

The mint and gum samples we offer are 100% xylitol. Xylitol is a naturally occurring sweetener that has been found to have huge benefits for your teeth. It works because the bacteria in your mouth that cause dental decay cannot metabolize xylitol, so the more xylitol you use per day, the lower the number of bacteria, which means less decay for you. It also makes the surfaces of your teeth smoother preventing the bacteria from sticking on them and gives you more saliva to help protect your teeth.

The people that can really benefit from xylitol are those with a high risk for tooth decay, like patients with dry mouth, diabetes, root exposure (recession), kids, and new moms. Using xylitol throughout the day will lower your risk for decay. Studies show that new moms who chewed xylitol gum for the first 2 years drastically lowered their child’s risk for decay. That is a great staring point in life for your child! Xylitol products include mints, gum, mouth spray, lollipops, toothpaste, and mouth rinses. It needs to be 100% xylitol to be therapeutic so make sure to look closely at the label. If you have any questions about choosing the right product, we are more than happy to help. 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!

Roundabout opening

Mayor Janice Perrino, fourth from right, cuts the ribbon to officially open the roundabout at the intersection of Prairie Valley Road and Victoria Road South. From left are Danna Gauthier and children from the Summerland Montessori School’s summer program, MLA Dan Ashton, Coun. Orv Robson, Perrino, MP Dan Albas, Coun. Bruce Hallquist and Sgt. Stephane Lacroix of the Summerland RCMP detachment.

Roundabout completed A large roundabout at the intersection of Victoria Road South and Prairie Valley Road — the third for the community — is now completed. The roundabout was officially opened on Thursday morning. “We’ve been waiting a long time for this day to come,” said Mayor Janice Perrino. The cost of the project was $3.34 million. This cost included $600,000 from the Gas Tax Fund and just over $54,000 from the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia. The rest of the cost came through municipal revenues. Along with the roundabout, work was done to provide flood protection for the area. MP Dan Albas said the gas tax funding program helped to cover the costs of the work. “We know that it’s going to help local residents,” he said. The federal gas tax fund provides long-term funding for municipalities for infrastructure projects. In British Columbia, the funding is administered by the

Union of British Columbia Municipalities, in collaboration with the provincial and federal governments. MLA Dan Ashton said the project was the result of teamwork and cooperation between various levels of government. “If doesn’t happen without everyone working together,” he said. Perrino thanked the residents, especially those who live near the intersection, for their patience during the construction. “I am amazed with how few complaints we had,” she said. The roundabout is expected to reduce congestion at the intersection. In the past, the four-way stop at Victoria Road South and Prairie Valley Road was busy, especially in the mornings. “This project will reduce congestion on the busiest corridor through Summerland,” Perrino said. “Current conflicts between pedestrians, school children, vehicular and commercial traffic have been a significant concern to council.”

Thursday, August 22, 2013 Summerland Review

Conservation efforts benefit fruit growers Without water, vegetation – including our food crops – stands little chance of survival in the heat of an Okanagan summer. Did you know, B.C. farmers meet about 50 per cent of our province’s food needs? They are vital to producing local, healthy food for our population that continues to grow. In the Okanagan, our numbers are projected to increase 45 per cent by 2036 to more than 260,000 people. For each one of those additions to our population, we

need more food – which, in turn, needs more water to grow. Our farmers markets and fruit stands are ripe with wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables. To ensure this continues, it’s important that we make sure there’s enough water for the farmers to irrigate their crops. As the sun gets hotter and the ground gets drier, some might think it’s time to turn on the taps more often. Instead, we need to help farmers by doing our part to conserve water. In fact, with gov-

Outdoor concert

ernment assistance and rebates, a growing number of Okanagan farmers are installing water meters, using drip irrigation and microjet sprinklers, and installing soil-moisture sensors to ensure they’re using only the water they need. But in the summer, we start to compete for water. If you have a vegetable garden, make sure to be WaterWise – using effective and efficient watering practices, paying attention to when and how much you water. Find tips at

w w w. M a k e Wa t e r Work.ca. If we use less water, there’s more for the farmers to keep their crops growing. That means healthy fruits and vegetables for our growing population. Learn more at w w w. m a k e w a t e r work.ca, then “Take the Pledge” and enter to win $5000 in WaterWise yard upgrades thanks to KelownaGardens. com. Make Water Work is an initiative of the Okanagan Basin Water Board and its Okanagan WaterWise program.

Hospital completion years away by John Arendt

An expansion at the Penticton Regional Hospital will proceed, but it will not be completed for several years. Earlier, Minister of Health Terry Lake said residents of the South Okanagan should not expect the expansion in this term. But that comment does not mean the project has been shelved. “What I meant to say is it wouldn’t be open in this term, it wouldn’t be finished. We are looking forward to getting the business plan early next year,” Lake said in Penticton earlier this month. “I fully expect within a couple of years we will be getting this project underway.” Janice Perrino,

chair of the Okanagan-Similkameen Regional Hospital District, said much work is needed before the project is completed. A business plan for the project is to be completed by May, 2014. After than, the plan goes before the province in order for construction to move forward. The construction phase alone could take three to five years, Perrino said. The best case estimate is for the work to be completed in 2017, but it is far more likely the work will be finished in 2018 or 2019. Although the timeline is several years, Perrino said the work will remain a priority. “No one is going to let this lag behind,” she said.

Delegation to visit Japanese sister city Summerland enjoys a long standing active and reciprocal relationship with her Japanese sister city, Toyokoro. Toyokoro is a small agriculturally based community on the north island of Hokkaido which puts it almost directly across from Portland Oregon when you look at it from a latitudinal perspective on the map. This September, 14 adult residents and five Summerland youth will embark on an amazing adventure as they head for Japan to represent Summerland in Toyokoro.   The 12-day excursion will depart Kelowna, drop down

into Vancouver, cross the Pacific where the travellers will make a quick connection in South Korea before the final leg of their air journey to Sapporo, Japan. After a couple of days to adjust in Sapporo the delegation will continue by train for the scenic threehour cross country trek to the city of Obihiro where they’ll be met by their hosts from Toyokoro which is less than an hour away by car. By this point in the trip, delegates will have crossed an international date line, experienced an overseas long-haul flight, discovered the cosmopolitan diversity found in Japan’s fifth

largest city, Sapporo, and been welcomed “home” to Toyokoro by some of the most hospitable people they’ll ever have the good fortune to meet. The residents of Toyokoro will host the Summerland delegation for a total of five days and nights that will be filled with cultural excursions, formal celebrations that recognize the ongoing commitment of our two communities and members of both city councils, invitations into the lives and the homes of our Japanese extended family, and memories that will last a lifetime. The sister city excursions travel biannually to Japan and on alternate years there is a delegation from Toyokoro that visits Summerland. Summerland residents and youth travelling to Toyokoro are self-funded and participate in some basic cross cultural education in preparation for the travel prior to departing for Japan. The benefits of this relationship to Summerland and her residents are abundant. Ask anyone who has made the trek and they’ll tell you that it was the trip of a lifetime, that they experienced a welcome more sincere than they imagined possible, and that they encourage anyone who is even remotely interested in travelling to Japan, to access this opportunity as it provides a glimpse inside the lives of the real people and a taste of the true traditional culture that comes only with a visit to a place where the people open their homes and their hearts to you. In addition to the

potential for this cultural exchange, there are also economic benefits present. Toyokoro regularly purchases ‘made in Summerland’ product in honour of their town’s Sister City commitment. During the biannual visits from Toyokoro their delegates also embrace the opportunity to ‘shop local’ in support of our business community. Toyokoro also continues to employ one of Summerland’s own youth as an assistant English teacher in Toyokoro. This year, Anna Marshall arrived in Toyokoro to begin her year as an AET in July. Readers will have the opportunity to get a glimpse into her life in Toyokoro through her letters from Toyokoro that she will be submitting to the Review for regular publication. The economic benefits are good and the cultural experiences are great. There is one more benefit that occurs when our Mayor and Council have the opportunity to meet with their counterparts in Toyokoro. They have the chance to look at common challenges our communities face and to discuss the creative solutions that each has employed. This international perspective is unique and not available in any other format. It provides our mayor and council with information they might not get from any other source, it enables them to see issues through new eyes, and to explore new ways of doing business. If you’re interest-

Ready to swing

Dean Bates was one of 100 participants in the Summerland Senior Men’s Open Championship on Thursday.

Two compete in international karate tourney A Summerland mother and daughter were part of an Okanagan contingent travelling to Hong Kong for an international karate tournament. Rita Becker and her daughter Katie Becker, students at the Taneda Karate Dojo, were at the Soke Cup earlier this month. The competition is the top international competition for the Chito-ryu style of karate. The event is held every three years. “It’s the world championship for our style of karate,” said Kim Sander of Taneda Karate. Katie Becker has been in karate since she was young. Her mother, Rita Becker,

joined less than three years ago. “She was a little reluctant to start,” Sander said, “but the expectation for anyone in our dojo is to do their best. The whole premise of our sport is based on respect and honour.” Chris Taneda, the head of Taneda Karate Dojo, is a seventhdegree black belt and is considered the top in Canada for the group’s style of karate. In the past, others from Taneda Karate have competed at the Soke Cup, including Coulson Boothe and Claire Boothe who participated in Norway in 2007. At that event, Claire Boothe was named the junior grand champion.

She was the example of unconditional love and giving. Peggy was preceded in death by her parents, Francis and Bridget Daniels, her 3rd born - Ricky Clements, husband - Marshal Desjardins and her special friend Paul. Also brothers; Harry Daniels, Michael Daniels, Dennis Daniels; sisters; Stella Daniels, Freda Drolet, Patricia O’Brien, Gladys Lerner, Terry Snaith and Joan Klein.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Arthur (Art) Zilkie on August 09, 2013 at the age of 96. Arthur was born in Ridgeville, Manitoba on Dec 30, 1916. Left to cherish his memory are his son Barry, his sister Eleanor, his daughter-in-law Elizabeth (Liz), many nieces, nephews and friends. Arthur lead an active joyful life and passed his exuberance onto everyone he met. Sports were his passion. He loved curling; golfing with his friends at Sumac Ridge, watching hockey with a close friend or discussing the latest baseball scores with whomever would listen. Arthur was pre-deceased by his wife Anne. Together they enjoyed life, gardening, golfing, camping, and travelling to Arizona for winter vacations. A celebration of Arthur’s life will held at Providence’s Summerland Chapel, 13205 Rosedale Ave. Summerland BC, on Saturday Aug 31, 2013 at 10:30AM. Condolences may be directed to the family through providencefuneralhomes.com

Concert benefits Agur Lake Camp The Agur Lake Camp Society presents Justin Hines in Concert with Special Guests Ash and Bloom on Saturday, Aug. 31 at 7 p.m. at Centre Stage Theatre. This benefit concert, in Support of Agur Lake Camp Society, is part of Justin Hines’ Vehicle of Change Tour. Hines has been doing a North American fundraising tour since early summer in support of various charities and non-profits across the continent. Tickets for the Summerland performance are available at The Sweet Tooth on Victoria Road North. Even though Hines grew up singing in church at his grandmother’s behest, his realization that music is not only his path, but also his destiny came at the most unlikely of places — at a Toronto Raptors’ basketball game in front of thousands, 15 years ago. Hines, then 14 years old, won a vocal competition to sing the Canadian and U.S national anthems at the game and his world opened up before him. “In that moment, it all seemed possible,” he recalls. “That per-

Arts PAlette

David Finnis formance eliminated any stage fright.” Thrown in the deep end, Hines, who has performed professionally ever since, realized he could not only survive, but thrive. But then again, Hines has thrived all his life against odds that would daunt someone with a less indomitable spirit. Hines has Larsen Syndrome, a joint dislocation condition that has him permanently using a wheelchair. “The reality is I don’t really look at my situation as that big a deal,” he says. “We all have things that challenge us, just some people’s are a little more visible in the forefront. Mine is very apparent, whereas others wear it on the inside.” Hines has performed across the globe, throughout Europe, China, the Middle East, South Africa

i

f

and North America. He performed at the Beijing Olympics supported by Sheila E, the Vancouver Olympics and the Pan Am Games in Mexico. Hines released his fifth studio album “How We Fly” this spring. His home in the music world is not cut and dry. “Most people assume there are challenges to being a performer in a wheelchair and indeed there are some, but when an audience sees you climb on stage via a giant metal ramp, you kind of have their attention,” says Hines. ooo If you know of an event you feel should be included in the Arts Palette or on the Arts Council’s online calendar, please email artspalette@ summerlandarts.com or call 250-404-3225. summerlandarts.com and twitter.com/ artspalette.
