YOUR SMILE

The provincial government is promising changes to municipal elections, including a ban on anonymous contributions, for the next time voters go to the polls to elect councils. The changes, which will be detailed in a white paper next month, also require disclosure and registration of third-party advertisers in local government elections. Sponsorship information will be required on all election advertising and campaign finance disclosure statements must be filed within 90 days instead of 120 days. “We are committed to ensuring that election participants are fully aware of any changes well in advance of the Nov. 15, 2014, local elections,” said Coralee Oakes, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. “These changes are about enhancing transparency and account-

ability.” Officials with the Union of B.C. Municipalities are pleased to see the changes coming. “UBCM is pleased to see that the province is moving forward on elections legislation,” said Mary Sjostrom, president, Union of BC Municipalities. “The phased approach they are adopting will help ensure the changes will work for the full range of communities in B.C. All candidates will look forward to learning what the rules will be for the 2014 campaign.” Mayor Janice Perrino, who was invited to the task force after the 2008 municipal election, said the changes are a good start in election reform. She said communities across the province have struggled with electoral issues, especially in the 2008 election. The changes governing anonymous advertisements were needed, she said. “It’s becoming a huge issue right across the province,” Perrino said. “When people make public comments, they need to sign their names.” See CHANGES Page 7

Bears returning to region by John Arendt

The bears are back in town — and they’re hungry. Zoe Kirk, WildSafeBC community coordinator for the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen, said bears are being attracted by fresh fruits as well as food wastes in the community. “Some of our habits place wildlife in jeopardy,” she said. “We humans have accidental-

ly provided a feast for bears at this time of year. Some residents place garbage out to the curb early the evening prior or a day or so before pick-up and many garbage cans and bags are filled with a bounty of pungent summertime leftovers. “ Earlier this year, Kirk asked Mayor Janice Perrino for help in drafting a garbage bylaw to curb this problem. When garbage and recyclables

are set out in advance, bears, with sensitive noses, will pick up on the smell and search for the food. For this reason, she said garbage should not be set outside until the day it is picked up. In Naramata, where a bylaw has been put in place, the number of problem bear encounters has dropped dramatically. Before the bylaw was put in place, six to seven bears were

destroyed each year. In the last three years, conservation officers have been called to destroy one unhealthy bear. So far this year, four problem bears have been destroyed in Summerland. Two others have been tagged so officials can track their movements. One of the two tagged bears later showed up in Peachland, Kirk said. See MEASURES Page 3

POLICE rEPOrt Woman scammed On Aug. 23, police were called after a 90-year-old woman attempted to withdraw a substantial amount of money from her bank account in order to pay for a prize. The caller had told the woman she had won $78 million through a Reader’s Digest contest, but had to send in the money to claim the prize. Bank officials noticed the irregularity and issued a stop payment. Police say scam attempts such as this one are reported to them frequently.

Phone stolen

On Aug. 22, police were called after an iPhone was taken from a tent at Peach Orchard Campground. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or the Summerland RCMP at 250-494-7416.

Vehicle crashes

Police were called to a single vehicle accident on Highway 97 at Johnson Street on Aug. 26 just after 10 p.m. A vehicle struck the median and a tire was destroyed as a result. A 20-year-old Penticton man was charged with failing to keep to the right. There were no injuries.

License suspended

On Aug. 17 at 5:30 p.m., police attended a single vehicle rollover on Dale Meadows Road near Gould Avenue. The driver was taken to hospital with injuries. Police say speed and alcohol were both factors in the accident. The driver received a 90-day driving prohibition and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

Hungry bear

A bear was recently captured on one of the monitoring cameras set up in the area. In fall, bears are seen in and near the community as they scrounge for food to fatten up for the winter.

Once a bylaw is put in place, Kirk said it will take around a year and a half to see a reduction in bear incidents in the community. In addition to food waste, Kirk said winter bird feeders can also attract bears and other wildlife. “Bears can get 5,000 calories out of a bird feeder,” she said, adding that the seeds and nuts are calorierich foods. Bird feeders should be set out after Dec. 15 and taken in by

Easter. In order to control bear encounters, Kirk recommends several measures. o Keep garbage secure and tightly sealed. o Make sure your compost is working. o Pick urban fruit and nut trees as soon

as possible and keep the area clear of fallen and rotting fruits. o Keep bird feeders and suet cages in storage until December. Problem wildlife should be reported to the Conservation Officer Reporting Line, 1-877-952-7277.

EDITORIAL

our pick

Election reform After the anonymous advertisements, polarization and vitriolic comments which defined the 2008 municipal election and its aftermath, it was evident that electoral changes were needed. Last week, the provincial government finally promised some reforms which will be in place in November, 2014, when British Columbians next elect municipal governments. The changes will affect third-party advertising, disclosure statements, anonymous contributions and election advertising. Such measures will help to prevent the confusion seen in the 2008 election. At that time, questions were raised whether the candidates named in the advertisements had been involved in getting the ads circulated. When an advertisement is clearly marked to identify who has paid for it and who is endorsing it, important questions are immediately answered. When the one advertising must include his or her name on the ad, the tone will change. Under the cloak of anonymity, it is possible to take a position much more extreme than if the same message bore attribution. If anonymous ads had not been allowed in 2008, the tone of the campaign may have been more subdued. While the changes will improve future municipal elections, some questions remain. Around the province, the 2008 elections showed the problems and shortcomings in the regulations. Why has it taken so many years for the province to address these problems? More importantly, when online venues such as websites, blogs, forums and social media sites are readily available, will it be possible to stop anonymous third-party advertising altogether? The changes in the coming legislation are badly needed, but they will not fully stop the flaws which have been shown in past elections.

The upcoming Conversation Cafe next month will bring together Summerlanders to discuss the way we view culture in our community. The meeting is important as it helps us to understand how much we have in common when we consider various issues. By coming together and listening to each other, it is possible to find solutions which can satisfy a diverse and vibrant community.

Time to revisit grant funding When Summerland’s third roundabout was opened two weeks ago, special mention was made of the contributions from the provincial and federal governments. The price tag for the roundabout was $3.34 million, but not all the money came from the municipality. Some was the result of provincial and federal grant funding. John Arendt A grant of $500,000 came from the Building Canada Fund Flood Protection Program. Other funding included $600,000 from the Gas Tax Fund and $54,000 from the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia. The gas tax money — a transfer and not a grant — came without strings attached, but the flood protection funding was the result of a specific grant request. The story has been much the same with other public projects. Every major undertaking in the past few decades if not longer has been funded in part through a grant process. In theory, this is a good idea as it alleviates some of the burden from municipalities. In practice, the process is cumbersome and can result in projects designed to meet funding requirements instead of community need. Under the existing structure, municipalities apply for

specific projects which meet the criteria of the grant offered at the time. These have included green initiatives, sports and recreation facilities, regional transportation projects and more. The money then goes to those projects which meet the terms and are considered most urgent. On the surface, there is nothing wrong with such a system and Summerland has benefitted in the past. Projects as diverse as the RCMP station, the water treatment plant, the expansion of Thirsk Dam and the sewer system all came about with the assistance of federal and provincial grants. The larger projects were necessary but could not have been completed without the grants. The smaller projects may have been possible without a grant, but the timeline would have been much longer. It’s a good method for the government body presenting the funding. At the end of the day, it is possible to show a list of projects, all meeting a set of criteria, which received funding. For the government on the receiving end, it is much less than ideal, particularly if a municipal government must choose between the most urgent project and one which is less important but meets the criteria of a grant. If funding is available for intersection projects, a community in desperate need of a new public building will end up looking at its road improve-

ments, which may be a much lower priority. Likewise, if a community can receive funding for parks or recreational facilities, road improvements which are more pressing may be postponed until a new grant becomes available. This system does not make much sense. Tying grant requests to a direction set by Victoria or Ottawa may mean Summerland’s greatest needs are overlooked or delayed. Those who sit at a local government table should know better than anyone about the needs of their community. The members of a council should be able to request funding for the most important projects rather than the ones which fit the current provincial or federal direction. The granting body would then consider if the plan has been thought out carefully, if the municipality has a history of completing its projects on time and on budget and if there is merit in the request. Summerland has some projects which are high priorities for the community, but until grant money is available for these needs specifically, the work will not get done. The municipality needs help in paying for infrastructure work. The present system is frustrating, but it will not change until the federal and provincial governments decide to simplify the needless complexity. John Arendt is the editor of the Summerland Review.

bad apples So far this year, four problem bears have been destroyed in Summerland. In addition to the ripening fruit and grapes, the smell of food wastes in the garbage can draw a bear, as can the smell of seeds in bird feeders. When measures are taken to remove potential food sources, the chance of a bear encounter will drop dramatically. Avoiding such encounters is good for the bears and good for us.

The early years

Back to school

Photo courtesy of the Summerland Museum

In 1909 the approximately 30 children who lived in Garnett Valley attended this one-room school. The school opened in 1907 but it was temporarily closed in 1911 when the new Central School was established in West Summerland. Students were conveyed to school by horse-drawn wagons but the daily trip was too much for the younger children so Garnett Valley School reopened in 1913. In 1919 it closed permanently; the building eventually becoming part of a barn. As Summerland students return to the classroom next week, we wish them a good year and the reassurance that their school will not become a barn in the near future.

Animal rescue began in 2003 Dear Editor: As we remember Firestorm 2003, let me add our two cents’ worth.  Our emergency animal rescue volunteers responded to Firestorm 2003 as well to evacuate animals and safely shelter them during this hell.  That year, we had decided to join an American group called Noah’s Wish.  Believe me, we were kept busy during the summer of 2003.  First in Osoyoos with a fire on Anarchist Mountain.  Then, a gas leak in Penticton.  On the August long weekend, we

deployed to 100 Mile House to cover Barriere north and then split our team to assist in Kamloops.  With only a twoday break from that fire, we mobilized to Kelowna. It was an amazing response and with the guidance of a mentor from the Justice Institute, Canadian Disaster Animal Response Team was born.  Our volunteers worked around the clock and to this day, many of that crew are still recovering from compassion fatigue and burnout.  This dedicated group of people still meet monthly and we

are proud to say that the team covers the communities from Princeton/Osoyoos all the way up to and including Winfield.  Our colleagues in rescue, Noah’s Wish, have gifted us with their response trailer to better service our communities.  The Emergency Social Services Association has tasked us with providing training in all six areas

of this province and trusted us with their bank account.  This summer we completed training in Oliver and in Salmon Arm and many communities throughout B.C. have requested our aid. We are proud to stand tall with the ESS volunteers we support! Deborah Silk CDART Coordinator Summerland

Future looks uncertain for senate Dear Editor: Is Stephen Harper heading for the closet — again? This time it’s the senate, and not knowing what to do about it, what better action than to prorogue Parliament. To be fair, this time it is a lot more complicated. In Bev Oda’s case he was dealing with only one person and a single issue that ended with the Conservative government losing a vote of confidence, and being found in contempt of Parliament. This time at least four senators are involved, and while he was procrastinating, the matter slipped out of his hands and is now with the RCMP. Having admitted to having “perused” Senator Wallin’s spending and expressed an element of comfort with her claims, the optics are not good. The larger issue is the future of the senate. In its present form, the senate can only stall legislation,

and only for six months. To be truly effective, our senate needs the same legislative authority as the U.S. senate, which can propose, amend and defeat legislation, and by being able to do so provide much needed balance to the House of Representatives, which is the equivalent to our House of Commons. The tricky part for Harper is how to handle the process of determining whether we keep the senate, change the role of the senate, or eliminate it. Will he acknowledge that we are still a colony and exercise his colonial powers to implement his decision or, will he insist that we are a democracy and let the people decide, by means of a binding national referendum? Trying to unload it onto the courts is completely irrational, and just another cop-out. Andy Thomsen Summerland

Fire ban rescinded A campfire ban, in place since Aug. 1, has now been lifted. The Kamloops Fire Centre lifted the ban at noon on Aug. 26, following rainfall throughout the area and a decreased risk of wildfires. While the ban is no longer in place, campers must still follow provincial campfire regulations.

The size of a campfire may not exceed half a metre wide by half a metre high. F l a m m a b l e material such as twigs and pine needles must be removed from the campfire area and a fuel-free area must be maintained while the fire is burning. Campers must have a shovel or at

least eight litres of water on site to extinguish the fire. Fires must not be left unattended and the ashes must be cool to the touch before leaving the area. Other fires, including those larger than half a metre wide by half a metre high, industrial burning, fireworks and burning barrels remain

w

s

prohibited. The fire ban had been put in place because of the hot, dry weather and the high fire danger rating. In a normal year, half of all wildfires in the province are caused by human activity while the rest are the result of natural conditions, such as lightning strikes.

Discussion will examine culture When the next Conversation Cafe is held next month, participants will examine how they understand culture in Summerland. The Conversation Cafe is organized by the municipality’s Cultural Development Committee and will be held on Sept. 12. Barbara Thorburn, one of the organizers of the event, said she wants to see as many people as possible attending.

“There are many different definitions of culture,” she said. “We want the community to be thinking and be engaged in a discussion of what culture means to us.” She added that culture need not be restricted to the arts but should also include diversity and multiculturalism. After the discussion, members of the municipality’s

Cultural Development Committee will review the comments and meet with municipal council. “We’ll look at the results and see what the people have to say.” David Finnis will be the moderator for the evening. The Conversation Cafe will be held at the IOOF Hall, 9536 Main St. on Thursday, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Changes will affect election advertising Continued from Page 1

In the 2008 election, a series of advertisements endorsed one of the two mayoral candidates and six of the 13 councillor candidates. All who were endorsed in the advertisements were elected. The following year, when criticisms arose, those named in the ads said they did not approve them. In December, 2009, Mark Ziebarth came forward and took responsibility for the endorsement ads which bore the name Citizens for Smart Governance. At the time, Ziebarth said he did not register and report the financial details of the advertising campaign, nor was he required to do so. “Nowhere in the

Local Government Act does it say an individual has to report advertisements in the newspaper,” he said. Perrion said t changes to the advertising regulations and the other changes will help to provide more transparency. She added that other election changes are still needed. The task force asked that municipal elections be held one month earlier, in October rather than November. “It’s very hard to campaign in cold weather,” Perrino said. The change will take effect in the 2017 municipal election, but Perrino wonders why it was not implemented for the 2014 election. A recommendation

for four-year election terms was not included in the changes. Perrino said the longer terms would benefit communities since council members would have more time to become familiar with the issues they are facing. Changes affecting campaign spending will be useful, although Perrino said overspending has not affected Summerland elections. Maureen Fugeta, Summerland’s corporate officer, said she is looking forward to the changes. “I’m hoping that with some of the changes, it will be clearer for us,” she said. The changes will address issues which have arisen in Summerland’s municipal elections in the past.

Equestrian competition

Garnett Valley Equestrian participants had a chance to test their jumping skills over jump courses of different heights and difficulty levels earlier this month. From left are Kinga Kotulska, Marnie Manders, Miranda Pawlenchuk, Phoebe Kotulska, Jenna Pearce, instructor Katia Heines and Lorraine Bennest.

Vehicles will be displayed at car show Restored and modified vehicles will be on display downtown during the annual Endless Summer Car Show on Sept. 14. The annual car show is organized

by the Apple Valley Cruisers car club. The event is an open car show, without restrictions to the vehicles which can be displayed. “It’s open to anything with wheels,”

said Garry Janzen, chair of the club. The majority of the vehicles will be from the 1930s to the 1950s, but others will also be on display, including hot rods, muscle cars, motor-

cycles and more. A 1903 Holley automobile will be one of the vehicles on display. The company which made the car today manufactures Holley carburetors. Janzen said more

than 300 vehicles are expected this year, as there are no other car shows in the province on the same weekend. Throughout the day, Flashback, a classic rock band,

will provide musical entertainment. The Summerland Secondary School Jazz Band will have a concession and will also perform. Numerous other community groups and

organizations are also involved with the show. Vehicle registration begins downtown at 7:30 a.m. and the show is expected to end between 3:30 and 4 p.m.

A Salute To

W

hile Labour Day parades and picnics are organized by unions, many Canadians today simply regard Labour Day as the Monday of the last long weekend of summer. Non-union celebrations include picnics, fireworks displays, water activities, and public art events. Since the new school year generally starts the day after Labour Day, families with school-age children take it as the last chance to travel before the end of summer. Some teens and young adults view it as the last weekend for parties before returning to school. Labour Day has been a national holiday in Canada since 1894.

Fundraising effort

Toni Selles, right, presents a cheque for $2,225 to Brenda Lowe for The One Person Project. The money was raised at a recent cocktail party organized by the Soulfull Project clothing and accessory store.

Over 60 shops and services

Toni Selles, proprietor of The Soulfull Project clothing and accessory store planned and hosted a fundraising event in July, with the proceeds, $2,225.60, being donated to the local organization the One Person Project for their programs in Kahama, Tanzania. The Soulfull Project sells ethically sourced products and donates a percentage from each sale to programs that feed children or support women entrepreneurs in developing countries.  The Soulfull Project also supports the Summerland Food Bank. The successful cocktail party, held at the Summerland Banquet Hall, was Selles’ first fundraiser and she plans to hold more in the future. “It was a learning curve for sure but I look forward to helping to raise funds and awareness

for all the great causes we have in our community,” said Selles. Brenda Lowe, president of the One Person Project gave a brief presentation at the event, explaining that part of the funds raised would be used to provide meals to children attending the Kahama Hospital’s HIV/AIDS Care and Treatment Clinic as the toxic drugs cause painful sideeffects if taken without adequate nutrition.  “Some of the money will go towards setting up a poultry cooperative, which will be run by the mothers, grandmothers and other female caregivers of the children who attend the clinic,” Lowe said. “Self-sustainability is key to progress for the families we support.”  The Soulfull Project is located inside Eric’s Photo Lab 10120 Main St., Summerland, 250-4862455.

Lower speeds, scooter licensing proposed by Jeff Nagel Black Press B.C. cities will next month debate proposals to cut the default speed limit on municipal streets to 40 kilometres per hour and to force licensing and regulation on users of motorized wheelchairs and scooters. The two proposals are among transportation-related resolutions that will be on the floor at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Vancouver in late September. The City of Victoria is behind the proposed cut in default speed limits from the current 50 km/h – if the lower 40 km/h default limit is adopted by the province, municipalities could still selectively designate specific roads for higher speeds. The resolution asks for provincial aid installing new signage, including signs for roads where the speed limit would

be different from the default 40 km/h. The current default is dangerously high on some residential streets, argues Victoria Coun. Shellie Gudgeon. “Even laneways can be 50 km/h if it’s not signed,” Gudgeon told Black Press. “It’s far too fast for neighbourhoods and families.” Ian Tootill of the motorist advocacy group SENSE BC predicts drivers wouldn’t obey a 40 km/h limit and said there’s little evidence of low-speed fatalities or injuries that could be prevented with an even lower limit. “The people who are driving this agenda are the people who underneath it all are anti-car,” Tootill said. “A lot of these people don’t even drive.” Sidney council argues seniors drive the scooters too fast on sidewalks without any regulation. Their resolution to UBCM urges the

province to regulate the use of motorized mobility aids, including wheelchair and scooters, and require training, testing and licensing of operators. There’s currently no registration, insurance or licence required to operate them in B.C. The province has indicated to UBCM it intends to develop a coordinated plan for safe operation of motorized scooters, including possible amendments to the

Motor Vehicle Act. The provincial coroner in 2008 issued re c o m m e n d a t i o n s supporting scooter regulation after several scooter-riding seniors died in crashes with vehicles. The B.C. Coalition of People with Disabilities opposes the idea. “These are mobility devices that people need to get out into the community,” said executive director Jane Dyson. “Such a regulation would impede their

independence.” White Rock Coun. Larry Robinson said he’s all for it. “There has to be some type of regulation, including you to be approved or prescribed to use them,” he said. Robinson said he has seen people operating electric wheelchairs holding up traffic. And he said he knows people who don’t have a medical need for the machines but just like to use them to get around.

“I don’t think you should be able to walk into a store and walk out with an electric scooter and just drive it wherever you want. There has to be some qualification for the use.” Another potentially controversial resolution coming before UBCM is a call for the province to allow the use of photo radar to ticket speeders in school and playground zones. The proposal from Penticton council argues that police-

staffed speed traps and volunteer-run speed reader boards are labour-intensive and have had limited success in reducing speeding. Revenue from fines would be shared on a negotiated basis with local municipalities, Penticton suggests. The UBCM executive hasn’t taken a position on the idea but the province has always firmly said it has no intention of reintroducing photo radar, which was eliminated in 2001.

Eden takes top spot in golf championship Ryan Eden of Summerland was the overall low gross winner in the Men’s Championship at the Summerland Golf and Country Club earlier this month. The championship was a hard fought battle among Eden, Nathan Ward and Len Filek.  While Eden shot a fine five under par, 67 on Day One of the championship, both Ward and Filek also recorded sub-par rounds. Eden commenced Day Two with a two-stroke lead, but struggled to maintain it. At one point Filek took over the

S

lead, but could not hold it and at the conclusion of 36 holes, Eden and Ward were tied at two under par 142. On the first play off hole, Ward had a three-foot putt for birdie to win the championship but lipped out. The second play off hole was the long #8, and Eden hit his approach shot to eight feet, and made the birdie putt to win the 2013 edition of the Summerland Men’s Club Championship. This is the third time in the last four years he has won the championship.

Seven Summerlanders in Challenge triathlon For seven Summerland triathletes, Sunday was a long day of swimming, cycling and running as they competed in the Challenge Penticton triathlon. The triathlon, which replaces Ironman Canada, attracted around 1,400 participants, or about half the number as were in Ironman in the past.

The course featured a 3.8-kilometre swim, a 180-kilometre cycle portion and a 42-kilometre run. Of the individual men, Neil Crofts finished 107th with a time of 12:24:25. He was 12th in the men’s 50 to 54 category. Ken Cashion finished 205th. His time was 13:35:50, placing sixth in the men’s 60

to 64 category. Michael MacDonald, the 309th individual male finisher, had a time of 15:14:40. He was seventh in the men’s 18 to 24 age group. Raymond Maaske, in 337th place, completed the event in 15:53:00, finishing 60th in the men’s 45 to 49 category. B. Edward Benoit, the 362nd finisher,

It took a while but it now looks like we are enjoying a classic Okanagan Summer. While not everyone is a total sun fanatic, we all enjoy the Okanagan for what it has become famous for. No matter what outdoor activity you enjoy, the holiday and summer season is time when everyone should take extra precautions when driving or traveling. Please be extra careful on the busy roads this summer. Arriving safely is far more important than getting there quickly. If you are going to enjoy more spirited beverages this summer, please take advantage of Designated Drivers and Taxis. Statistics very clearly show that there is an increase in Drinking and Driving during the summer season. Let's see a reversal of that trend. We will all be better off for it.

Machtaler wins golf championship Summerland golfer Greg Machtaler continued his winning season in Salmon Arm earlier this month as he won the 2013 Titleist/FootJoy PGA of BC Cham-

pionship. Machtaler, the assistant pro at the Summerland Golf and Country Club, chipped in for the birdie on the second playoff hole to beat

Bryn Parry of Seymour Creek. The top prize, presented by Axis Insurance Managers, included a $6,000 cheque and the William Thompson Tro-

Golf winner

phy. “I can’t explain it,” he said later. “It’s been a dream summer.” Machtaler added the PGA of BC Championship to the Assistants’ Championship he won in Chilliwack in June and the Pro-Assistant Championship he won with Summerland head pro Tye Babkirk in July, and the 2013 Canada Cup in Victoriaville earlier this month. Parry said the future for Machtaler is endless. “He’s just getting started,” said Parry. “I cheer guys like Greg on because I’ve been there and I know how hard it is to get to that next level. Greg has a great future in front of him.”

Machtaler had numerous chances to win the William Thompson Trophy, but a lipped out birdie putt at 17 and an approach on 18 that went a hair long into the fringe forced Machtaler into needing to two-putt for the win. His eight-foot birdie putt stayed right and that meant the trio was back to 18 for a playoff.

Parry and Edd Boudreau of Gorge Vale, the two runners-up take home $3,750 cheques for their efforts. Finishing in a tie for fourth were Olympic View’s Kevin Maxwell, who shot rounds of 69 and 72; McCleery’s James Harper, who shot 73 and 68; Two Eagles’ Dean Claggett, who shot 76 and improved by

11 strokes to 65 on the second day and Northview’s Kyle German, who also shot 73 and 68 for a 141 total. The fourth-place finishers each cash a cheque for $1,800. The top 37 players in the tournament shared more than $32,000 in prize money in the PGA of BC’s most prestigious tournament of the year.

Steam prepares for hockey season The Summerland Steam are set to start their third season in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League. A total of 50 players will be vying for a spot on the roster, with many locals in the hunt.

The camp began yesterday and continues today. The exhibition season starts Friday, Aug. 30 with rival Kelowna Chief in town at 7:30 p.m. and on Aug. 31 the Princeton Posse challenge the Steam again at 7:30 p.m.

The Steam will wrap up their exhibition games with the Osoyoos Coyotes in Summerland on Sept. 8 at 7:30 p.m. The league’s regular season starts with the Steam on the road for their first five games, visiting Osoyoos and Revelstoke on Sept. 13 and 14. The following weekend the team will travel to the Kooteneys , Nelson, Beaver Valley and Spokane. On Sept. 27 the Steam play their home opener when they face the Princeton Posse.

Fundraiser to benefit high school Justin Kripps, 2010 Olympian and 2014 Olympic hopeful, has teamed up with the Summerland Secondary School Athletics Department to hold a fundraiser which will benefit both the school’s athletic program and his quest for Sochi 2014. As a member of Canada’s World Cup Bobsleigh team, Kripps receives significant quantities of merchandise from Adidas, one of their main sponsors. It is common for sponsors to supply athletes with their products, but as Jon Montgomery (2010 gold medalist for skeleton) has said, “As athletes we often have to live hand to mouth, and the support we receive is usually not edible.” Cash sponsorships enable athletes to purchase what they need to live and train and compete. With ongoing financial restraints, athletic programs at Summerland Secondary School have seen funding  steadily erode so that now individual athletes have to come up with $300 to $500 for each team they want to play on each year. “If it wasn’t for the school track team, I wouldn’t be where I am now,” Kripps said. “That is where my career started.” To help Summerland athletes, Kripps will donate his excess Adidas gear to the athletic department for them to sell and split the profits. Tom Brickenden, athletic director at the high school, is organizing the sale. “We are happy

Justin thought of us,” Brickenden said. “We are glad to be helping him on his Olympic journey. It is great to have one of our former students to watch at the Olympics.” Items include jackets, workout pants, snow pants, gloves, toques, caps, shirts, track spikes and various other items. “Of course Justin is now six feet and 220 lbs. of solid muscle, so this clothing is all on the large side,” Brickenden said. “It may be too big for most of our students, however we are hoping to attract a variety of people. Snowmobilers, snowboarders — in fact anyone who wants to help support our school and Justin, and have some good quality winter sports clothes at prices far less than retail.” Some of the items are brand new still with tags on, others have been slightly worn. The sale will take place Sunday, Sept. 8 from 1 to 3 p.m. near the main entrance of Summerland Secondary School. Kripps has also donated a signed print of his 2010 Olympic bobsleigh four-man team in action. The print is signed by all four team members  Pierre Lueders, Jesse Lumsden, Neville Wright and himself. Brickenden intends to frame the photo and hopefully generate enough money from its sale to have a bursary for a 2014 grad pursuing athletics.

Art Walk shows works by local artists Have you taken in Art Walk 2013? If not you have until Aug. 31 to visit all or some of the 38 venues in Summerland that are displaying art by local artists. Art Walk 2013 is an excellent opportunity to experience the original works of 37 local emerging and established artists. You will find paintings, photography, jewellery, pottery, textiles, and sculpture on display throughout Summerland and the surrounding area in venues that include restaurants, retail

outlets, and wineries. You can pick up an Art Walk brochure, which lists participating artists and venues, at the Art Gallery and Summerland Visitor’s Centre. Look for the Art Walk decal on participating businesses. It is exciting to know that our local theatrical company, Summerland Singers and Players, will be putting on the classic radio play, War of the Worlds, originally broadcast by Orson Welles, in October and that they are organizing a community read of A Christmas Carol on

Arts PAlette

David Finnis Dec. 6. Of course, you don’t have to wait that long to watch a great stage performance. The Many Hats Theatre Company are bringing the Norm Foster play,

Skin Flick, to the Cannery Stage beginning on Sept. 5. Don’t be afraid of the title. This hugely entertaining comedy won’t make you blush. (Though there is some language you might not want the kids to hear.) Skin Flick is a delightful poke at the adult film industry as only Norm Foster could do it — a tender and affectionate comedy about five innocent people caught up in the process of making an adult film. The laughs lie in the shock and discomfort of the char-

acters as they venture into uncharted waters. There will be a reception opening night in the adjoining Opus Bistro which will give everyone a chance to meet and chat with the cast and crew. Reserved seat tickets are available at the Wine Country

Visitor’s Centre Railway and Eckhardt in Penticton or reserved by phone at 250-2762170. 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 The Arts Palette is written by David Finnis, publicity chair and president of the Summerland Community Arts Council, P.O. Box 1217, 9533 Main St., Summerland, B.C. V0H 1Z0.

School supplies

Dixie Rosher, left, and Marilyn Topham fill some of the 400 school bags for the Summerland United Church’s 2013 project. Bags will be sent to Mennonite Central Committee in Abbotsford and will then be distributed to students and teachers in developing countries.

United Church prepares school kits School kits from Summerland will be distributed to students and teachers in developing countries. This is the eighth year Summerland United Church has partnered with the Mennonite Central Committee in Abbotsford to send school kits to developing countries. These school bags make a difference for students who have schools with teachers but none of the tools for learning. Parents have no money to provide the paper and pencils needed by the students. All the boys and girls who have the privilege to attend school are thankful for these gifts and eager to put them to use. Children are often

only able to attend school until Grade 6 when they then must go out to work to help support their families. Education means they will be able to get a better paying job. In the past, bags have been distributed to students in Bosnia, North Korea, Kenya, Syria and Guatemala. In 2012, 129,779 school kits were distributed to developing countries. Each kit was prepared and donated by worldconscious church members. Through the Mission and Outreach Committee, with the assistance of the Summerland United Church congregation, cloth bags are made to contain note books, pencils, an eraser, ruler and col-

oured pencils. The local church’s goal is 400 completed school bags which will be sent to the central point in Abbotsford for loading and transporta-

tion to the selected countries. Anyone interested in helping with this humanitarian initiative can contact Summerland United Church.
