Ridings adjusted Federal electoral changes separate Penticton and Summerland by John Arendt Summerland and Penticton will no longer share a Member of Parliament when the next electoral boundary changes take effect. Under the changes, Sum-

merland will be part of the new district of Central Okanagan — Similkameen — Nicola while Penticton will be in the riding of South Okanagan — West Kootenay. The Central Okanagan — Similkameen — Nicola riding also includes Princeton, Merritt, Peachland and a portion of Kelowna. The South Okanagan — West Kootenay riding

includes Keremeos, Oliver, Osoyoos, Castlegar and Nelson. Members of Summerland’s municipal council are concerned with the redrawn boundaries. “I don’t think it’s good,” said Mayor Janice Perrino. She added that Penticton and Summerland are closely connected. See QUESTIONS Page 2

A scheduled transit service for Summerland will be in place before the end of next month. Municipal administrator Tom Day said the new service will have its official opening on Monday, Oct. 21. The first bus will run on Monday, Oct. 28. The transit service will operate between Summerland and Penticton Monday to Friday with four buses a day. Evening and weekend service may be added in the future depending on the demand. The fare for the service will be $2 for a trip within Summerland and $4 for a one-way trip to or from Penticton. The route will start at the Summerland Library and the bus will stop at Nesters Market, Rosedale Avenue, the Summerland Health Centre, Summerland Seniors’ Village and Summerland IGA. Twice a day, the bus will also stop in Trout Creek. Buses will be scheduled for early morning, mid morning, early afternoon and late afternoon or early evening. Details of the schedule will not be finalized until September. Meribeth Burton of B.C. Transit said the schedule will be set up to accommodate transportation to and from work or school in Penticton. “Our big hope is that we attract commuters and post-secondary students,” she said. Summerland’s present transit service is a paratransit system which operates Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Those using the paratransit service must call ahead, 24 hours in advance, to arrange a ride. In addition, there is a bus twice a day to the Penticton Regional Hospital. “We’re adding something new and exciting, which is a fixed schedule,” Burton said. “This is the first time we’ve introduced a fixed route to Summerland. It has to work.” Mayor Janice Perrino said discussions about bringing a bus service to Summerland have been years in the making. “We’ve been working with B.C. Transit since 1999,” she said. While she would like to see the schedule expanded to include evening and weekend service, she said the initial weekday service is a place to start. “All you need to do is get the bulk of the population taken care of first,” she said. B.C. Transit will have a bus at the Summerland Fall Fair later this month.

Interior Health seeks input from patients Volunteers are sought to join a network of patients, families and caregivers to share their experiences with the province’s health care system. The Patients as

Partners Patient Voices Network will hold an orientation session in Summerland on Friday, Sept. 20. “The orientation session is a fantastic opportunity for

participants to learn more about the Patient Voices Network and how they can help make real changes to the health care system,” said Carol Stathers, the Network’s Interior

Health Liaison. Volunteers will receive information and support to participate in focus groups, seminars, conferences and surveys. The network is not

an advocacy group on patient care. Rather, it is intended to provide detailed information to assist Interior Health in evaluating the delivery of its services. In the past, mem-

bers of the Patient Voices Network have provided information on the Interior Health Authority’s website. Diabetic members were asked to describe their experiences with

TV that ties the town together.

the Interior Health Authority’s diabetes strategy. Stathers said the information is also used in cooperation with the University of British Columbia Okanagan and with Okanagan College. The Patient Voices Network began as a provincial initiative in 2009. At present, there are around 550 patients in the network, including 160 from the Interior region. Those interested in joining the network may sign up at or call 1-888-742-1772. Officials with Interior Health will meet with the applicants to determine if the Patient Voices Network would be a good fit.

The two communities are in the same school district and health care region. MLA Dan Ashton said the two communities should have been kept together. “Summerland doesn’t belong in a relationship with the north,” he said. The British Columbia commission on boundary changes set out its recommendations to create ridings which were near the name population size.. “The Commission had received submissions to place Summerland in the same electoral district as Penticton. This was deemed unfeasible because it would have resulted in an electoral district with a population variance well above the electoral quota,” the report said. Electoral boundaries are reviewed every 10 years, following the census results. The ridings are set out based on population. The Central Okanagan — Similkameen — Nicola riding will have 104,398 people, according to the 2011 census results. This is close to the target population for a riding.

Building regulations expanded Summerland’s building regulations have been expanded to clarify the rules and impose stricter penalties for violators. The bylaw, which received first three

readings at the municipal council meeting on Aug. 26, was two years in the making. The changes clarify the responsibilities of the owner of the building and the municipality.

The owner is responsible for all aspects of the construction process. Property owners will be required to sign an owner ’s understanding document, to state they are

aware of the regulations. “What we are attempting to do is present a clear picture of what is required,” said municipal planner Ian McIntosh. Other changes

include higher penalties for violations. The fees are doubled if construction takes place without a building permit and tripled if work proceeds prior to an inspection.

Those who continue construction after a stop work order has been issued will pay five times the value. “It’s very rare that people would continue with a stop work order in place,” McIntosh said, although there have been several instan-

ces of such violations. Other changes include the creation of a certificate of occupancy and clearer definitions of standard and complex buildings. Summerland’s existing building bylaw dates to 1992 and the last amendment was in 2000.

our pick

Introducing transit The recent announcement that Summerland’s scheduled transit service will soon begin is welcome news. For years, the need for such a service has been evident. We have many commuters who travel from Summerland to Penticton for work each day. Others need medical services, access to government offices or access to specialized businesses and services which are not available locally. And Summerland also offers some businesses and services which are not available in Penticton. Not all are able to make the trip between the two communities by car. Details of the service have yet to be finalized, but it will begin with four trips a day, Monday to Friday. Later, if the demand is shown, evening and weekend service may be added. While the transit service is a good start, the hours are limited.The need for transportation between Summerland and Penticton does not end in the early evening. Eventually, the transit service must be expanded to provide evening and weekend service. Additional hours will help those who need to travel between the two communities after business hours or on a Saturday or Sunday, for any reason. However, the service will not be able to expand to this level unless riders use the initial bus service. If buses are mostly empty during the day, then it is not likely that we will see additional hours of service. The initial work has been done and a scheduled bus service will soon be in place in Summerland. What happens next is up to the public. If there is a solid ridership base, the service will grow and expand with the community. If it is not used, the best we could expect is a limited service.

Over the summer, many children participated in the library’s Summer Reading Club. The program is held each summer and helps to instill a love of reading among children and youths. We hope this love of reading will continue. In a world where we rely heavily on the written word, any efforts to encourage and promote reading are welcomed.

Back to school labour disputes VICTORIA – Another school year dawns in B.C., with the prospect of disruptive labour disputes. First up are 27,000 support staff, in a legal strike position. These are the teacher aides, custodians, bus drivers and crossing guards. Most are members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, with a few Tom Fletcher Teamsters and other locals scattered around the 60 school districts. Public discussion about these disputes usually focuses on wage increases, which CUPE members in schools haven’t seen for four years. Their current deals expired more than a year ago, after they were subject to the same twoyear wage freeze imposed on the rest of government. The B.C. government moved from the post-recession wage freeze to a system they call “co-operative gains,” where raises must be financed by savings in other areas of the operation. Only two provincial employee groups have yet to do this: school support staff and teachers. (Education Minister Peter Fassbender confirmed last week that teacher raises will be funded by extra transfers from the provincial treasury as they try to get a long-term deal. But that’s a topic for another day.)

CUPE, the largest union in the country, has a sophisticated media campaign to generate public sympathy. We are repeatedly reminded not only that the last raise was 2009, but that the “average” pay is a mere $24,000 a year. If that number is accurate, it reflects a large number of parttimers. Let’s look at a few provisions CUPE doesn’t talk about, on behalf of those self-employed taxpayers who have no paid holidays, no employer pension or benefits and no paid overtime, but are expected to help pay all of the above to government workers. The 60 contracts have many variations, but core elements are the same. In the Central Okanagan school district, the starting CUPE wage rate is $17.37 an hour. The top rate is $26.59, or $28.78 for workers who qualify for a “trades adjustment.” All contracts have rigid seniority and “bumping” clauses to ensure that new employees absorb any reductions in working hours. From a taxpayers’ perspective, this leads to the maximum number of employees making the highest wages. Overtime in Central Okanagan is time and a half for the first two hours, and double time after that. Contracts also include the provision that unscheduled overtime is subject to a fourhour minimum. It’s amazing how often an unexpected hour of work can arise when it’s paid

at quadruple time. The Surrey school district contract details how even “spare board” employees are to be enrolled in the municipal pension plan, a defined-benefit system most private-sector employees can only dream about. Then there are paid sick days. The Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation reports that the average B.C. private sector worker took 7.4 sick days last year. The public sector average was 12. The Surrey contract details the windfall of unused sick days that must be paid out to employees who retire as early as age 55. The maximum is 150 days, for a lavish perk only available to employees hired before July 1, 1996. Even so, we’ll be paying these bonuses out for years to come. It goes on and on. Six weeks’ paid vacation after 20 years, with an extra day added for every year after that. There are many little things, such as a $60 “swimsuit allowance” for teacher aides who take part in swimming instruction. This is not to devalue the work done by these people. It is to suggest that given the growing gap between public and private employment benefits, finding savings is reasonable.

The latest federal riding boundary changes are disappointing for Summerland. While Summerland and Penticton have many close ties, the two communities will be in separate ridings if the proposed changes are approved. We understand the desire to keep ridings close to the same population, but the boundaries should also take into account the regional considerations which will be affected. Putting the two communities into separate ridings will not benefit this region.

The early years

Before they were vintage

On Saturday, Sept. 14, Main Street will bear a bit of a resemblance to this photo taken in 1956. The annual Endless Summer Car Show will line the street with vehicles that are now considered vintage and will impress you, make you smile, or bring back memories (especially if you’re also considered vintage.) And while you’re strolling through yesteryear, stroll over to the Summerland Museum to complete the journey. The past is a great place to spend a Saturday.

Kripps appreciates community support Dear Editor: The Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics are fast approaching and we are in full training mode at the Calgary Olympic Park training centre with some great new upgraded facilities. I would once again like to thank all my hometown supporters and especially Pharmasave Summerland, who are continuing their generous sponsorship. It is always a challenge to be able to train full time and make ends meet. I hope you all saw the Pharmasave logo

on my sleds in last seasons TV coverage of the World Cup races, and it will be featured again this season. As mentioned in an article in your paper last week Summerland Secondary School is organizing a sale this coming weekend (Sunday, Sept. 8, 1 to 3 p.m. at the school entrance), of some great sporting gear which I have been able to provide. Hopefully the money raised will help the school’s athletes in their upcoming seasons, as well as help with my team fees.

I believe school teams are very important and it is too bad that funding has been cut so drastically. Being on a school team played an important role in my development not only as an athlete but as a person. I will be starting this coming season as pilot of the Canada #3 sled in both the two-man and fourman competition on the World Cup Series. This is only the second time Canada has had three sleds qualify in both disciplines for the World Cup Circuit (last year being the first) and we are hoping to qualify all three sleds for the first time for the Olympics . It is going to be an exciting season and I know we can do it. Thanks to your paper as well for your continued coverage, I will endeavour to give regular updates on our quest for Sochi.

Why Summerland needs a cultural plan

Carla McLeod Special to the Summerland Review

Justin Hines performed at Centre Stage Theatre on Saturday evening to raise money for Agur Lake Camp. The concert was part of Hines’ Vehicle of Change tour. All money raised at the various North American concerts is donated to local charities. Hines described Agur Lake Camp as “such an incredible concept with incredible people behind it. I think it is amazing they are providing opportunities for everybody to experience nature, so I am a big fan of what they are doing.”

On Sept. 12 we are all invited to a Conversation Café at the IOOF Hall at 7 p.m. The topic for the evening is ‘Creating a Vibrant Cultural Community’ with the premise that culture is important to Summerland’s health and wellbeing. Hosted by the District of Summerland’s planning department and the local Community Cultural Development Committee, the evening will be an initial step in the information gathering process of developing a Cultural Plan for our community. Municipal cultural planning is a modern technique that helps communities of all sizes become more creative cities. It is

a tool for identifying what is unique about a community and using it for economic prosperity and improved quality of life. In May, I wrote about cultural industries such as performing arts, visual arts and heritage institutions, writing and published works, film and video production, broadcasting, advertising and creative design, and interactive digital media. Each of these industries is represented in Summerland, some more visibly than others. We know from available research that cultural industries are becoming important components of today’s

When a person passes away one of the first questions that must be answered is: Did the deceased have a valid will? If the answer is yes, then the process which must be followed to legally deal with their assets is called an application for Probate. If the deceased did not have a valid will then the process is called an application for Estate Administration. Both applications are essentially the same in that they list the assets to be dealt with, appoint a person to be in charge of the estate and then determine who receives those assets or the proceeds from the liquidation of those assets. Where they diverge is the method of determining who the beneficiaries are and the apportionment of the estate between those beneficiaries. In creating a will a person sets out their wishes for the distribution of their estate. Without a will the distribution of an estate is governed by the provisions of the Estate Administration Act. Those provisions are arbitrary and will require the involvement of the Public Trustee on behalf of minor beneficiaries. The consequences of passing away without a properly executed will drawn by your Lawyer can be financially and emotionally devastating to your family or beneficiaries. Without a will your survivors are left without any direction as to how your estate is to be distributed as well as any idea who should be in charge of distributing your estate. The passing of a loved one is traumatic enough without family members and survivors having to worry about legal issues. Proper legal advice at all stages of the process is essential to the smooth and worry free transmission of assets through an estate.

Cultural planning goes beyond identifying those sectors and asks us to participate in a process where we work together and weave our tangible cultural assets such as the KVSR, galleries, festivals, trails, people working in the above noted industries, etc., with our intangible assets – the stories and traditions that contribute to defining our community’s unique identity and sense of place. Ultimately the goal of a cultural plan is to create what is known as a Creative City – one that attracts the bright young minds that are driving the economy, re-building vibrant downtowns and supporting sustainable communities.

greater the incentive for people with similar interests and values to live and work here, and hopefully to also start businesses that will employ others. A cultural plan helps us get from here to there. ‘Here’ is a sense that we know many things about ourselves and different groups in different areas are working to identify these. ‘There’ is an intentional and directed plan to help us achieve a long range and holistic vision for Summerland that is linked with our strategic and economic objectives.

during the six years of his presid e n c y, from 2005 to 2011. S a r dinha’s Joe untimely d e a t h Sardinha comes at age 52, leaving his wife Julie and two grown children. The family has

asked for privacy as they recover from this unexpected death. “Joe’s death was totally unexpected. Everywhere I went, people asked how Joe was keeping – out of admiration and respect for Joe. He loved his family, farming and the farm community. I speak for all tree fruit growers in saying we are deeply saddened

by this news,” said Jeet Dukhia, current BCFGA president. Sardinha was the child of Portuguese immigrants, the second generation to farm in the Okanagan. “It was the land of opportunity. Quite often they would go back to Portugal, marry and bring their wives over and have families here,” said Sardinha,

After an accident

One man was taken to hospital with serious leg injuries on Friday following a collision on Taylor Place. A motorist, backing out of a driveway, struck the man who was working on his vehicle.

Police rePort

speaking of the wave of Portuguese immigration from the mid-50s to early 60s. “And before you know it they’re orchard owners themselves.” During his term, Sardinha led the BCFGA through a massive restructuring that saw consolidation of the packing houses and an increased focus on quality of the fruit produced in the province. But despite many difficulties: frosts, hail, low fruit prices, rising costs, Joe remained unfailingly optimistic, even managing to find a silver lining during a year when the apples coming off the tree were smaller than ideal. Or talking about low returns on the 2008 crop: “It’s definitely not all bad news. You have to remain optimistic,” Sardinha said in early 2009, noting that ambrosia, one of the market leading apples might be selling at a dollar a box less than the previous year, but that still translates into a very good return for the growers.

licence suspended

On Aug. 27 at 6:50 p.m., police stopped a 2007 Infiniti on Peach Orchard Road at Biagioni Avenue. The 57-year-old Calgary woman driving the car refused a roadside breath test and was issued a 90-day licence suspension. Her vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

Boat found

On Aug. 29, a 4.5-metre white fibreglass boat was found on the beach at Summerland Beach RV Campground. The boat has a 70-horsepower Johnson outboard motor. Police say the boat appears to have broken free of its moorings. The owner is asked to call the RCMP to claim the boat.

Vehicle impounded

On Aug. 31 at 8:25 p.m., police stopped a motorist on Highway 97 north of Summerland. A 44-year-old Coldstream woman blew a Warn during a roadside impairment test. Her driver’s licence was suspended for three days and her vehicle was impounded for three days.

Bike stolen

On Sept. 1 at 4 p.m., police were called after a bicycle was stolen from an apartment on Victoria Road North. The bicycle is a blue and green 2010 Kona 21-speed mountain bike.

truck and AtV stolen

On Sept. 2, a parking garage on Rosedale Avenue was entered. A blue 1989 Ford pickup with the licence FB3010 and a 2005 Suzuki ATV painted in camouflage colours were stolen.

Vandals stopped

On Monday at 12:40 p.m., police were called when four teenage girls were seen writing on the walls of Summerland Middle School. School officials gave the girls cleaning supplies so they could remove their writing. They were then turned over to their parents.

Thursday, September 5, 2013 Summerland Review

Rotary Club adds Facebook page Rotary, the world’s first volunteer service organization has joined Facebook. The Summerland Rotary Club has joined too. The club already has more than 125 likes on its Facebook page, with hundreds more people stopping by for regular visits from all over the world. Public relations chair Dave Cassidy said Rotary International started encouraging the use of social media last year. It is making people of all ages more aware of the service club is currently doing in the community. Facebook tells people what the club is doing – helping to build hospitals, medical clinics and support many worthy local projects too. Photos are taken at each event and each meeting and are then posted to the club’s Facebook page. The Facebook page also has updates on

what other clubs around the district are doing as well as international clubs too. It has helped broaden the clubs view of how they are all working together. Although the Summerland club has 25 members, many were reluctant to join in on Facebook initially. The page now has 125 likes, which means it can be seen by well over 46,000 people from around the world. “I am thrilled when I get responses from folks in Australia, India, Ireland, the Philippines, Germany and Costa Rica,” Cassidy said. The club will host a Chamber Business After Business on Sept. 17 at the Summerland Motel, which is owned and operated by club president John Lathey. Cassidy said club members want to keep the club growing by using both the face to face method as well as social media.

Summerland Review Thursday, September 5, 2013

Terry Fox Run scheduled by Keith Johnson

It has been 33 years since Terry Fox ran his heroic Marathon of Hope. Fox said, “Even if I don’t finish, we need others to continue. It’s got to keep going without me.” By Feb. 1, 1981, his dream of raising $1 for every Canadian was realized when the fund totalled $24.17 million. He died in June 1981. Summerland held its first run in 1986. The last three years have set progressively higher records with 143, 162, and 212 participants respectively. Summerland has raised almost $50,000. It is estimated that in 2013 more than 187,000 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer and more than 75,000 people will die from it. On average, 500 Canadians will be diagnosed with one of more than 200 forms of cancer every day, and more than 200 will die from it every day. About two in five Canadians will develop cancer and one in four will die from it. The Terry Fox Foundation has raised more than $600 million world-wide since 1980. In 2012, the foundation invested almost $30 million in three key areas of cancer research. The Canada-wide Terry Fox Run is Sunday, Sept. 15. Summerland’s run starts at 10 a.m. with registration at the Aquatic Centre. The run/walk starts at 11 a.m. on Kelly Avenue and finishes at the same site. Organizers have three routes of five kilometres, three kilometres and one kilometre, allowing for various levels of physical ability. The one-kilometre walk will be led by the Summerland Orca Swim Club. Snacks

will be served following the run. The five-kilometre and three-kilometre events are suitable for bikes, wheelchairs, scooters, strollers and rollerblades. The onekilometre walk is not suitable for bikes or rollerblades. Dogs on leash are welcome. National School Run Day is Thursday, Sept. 26. Giants Head Elementary School, Summerland Middle School, Summerland Montessori School, and Trout Creek Elementary School are planning events. At Terry Fox events, the emphasis is on participation. There is no run fee and no minimum donation. Pledge forms are available at the Aquatic Centre and other downtown locations, but are not required. Participants can register on-site with a donation. A large poster will be available for participants to indicate who they are running for. For details and for online fund-raising options, visit www. or call 1-888-836-9786. For local information, call Keith at 250809-7648 or email Keith Johnson is the organizer of the Summerland Terry Fox Run.






Hockey camp

Hockey players try out for positions on the Summerland Steam Junior B hockey team. The team held its training camp last week. The next home game is on Sept. 8 against Osoyoos.

Steam preparing for winning season Coaching staff with the Summerland Steam screened potential players at their main camp on Wednesday and Thursday. “It’s looking like a really strong group,” said Tim Keilty, owner of the Junior B hockey team. “Gregg (Wilson) and John (DePourcq) are both very excited about the prospects this year.” The team, entering its third season, reached the playoffs in last year’s hockey season. Keilty expects

to see another strong year from the players. “I think we’re going to be contending for the top position in our division all year long,” he said. DePourcq, head coach of the team, said he wanted to find players with good character, not just good hockey skills. He added that the mix of new and returning players will add to the strength of the team. The Steam will play their last exhibition game hosting

Washing the face more than twice per day leads to irritation, alters the hydro-lipidic film and triggers sebum production, which can make imperfections worse. makeup can aggravaTe imperfecTions. True and False. Oily products can block pores. Use only oil-free, non-comedogenic products and REMOVE MAKE-UP EVERY NIGHT. The sun can help geT rid of imperfecTions. False. The sun dries out the skin's surface giving the impression that imperfections have cleared up. In actual fact, UV rays thicken the skin and after prolonged exposure, there is a rebound effect - accumulated sebum resurfaces and new imperfections occur. Let me help select the correct Normaderm products for you.

Yamamoto, Brian Brian will always be in the hearts of: Colleen, his lifelong friend & partner, father Yuki Yamamoto & mother Beatrice Merrick, children: Shane (Dasha), Luke, Kilani (Brian), brothers and sisters: Rod (Georgina), Brenda (Kevin), Kim, Trudy, Shane (Gena). Brian passed away from cancer at the age of 62. Brian was a fierce warrior who fought every battle placed before him with honour and courage; loved by many people, most of all by his friend and partner Colleen and his children of whom he was especially proud of. Brian’s passions included riding his motorcycle “Ruby” to feel the wind in his face and going fishing with his kids, where usually he did more reading then reeling in any catches. His laughter and good sense of humour warmed everyone he met. Brian’s charm, genuineness and ability to disarm made him a friend to so many. Heartfelt thanks to the doctors and nurses who assisted us on this journey, there are too many to name, but you know who you are. We could not have done this without the spectacular support you provided.

Brian, you’re the man I adore, the partner I can share everything with, the friend who understands me so well, the lover who captures my heart. I will love you for always, for always I will love you. ~ Colleen.

“When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight. Some of you say, “Joy is greater than sorrow,” and others say, “Nay, sorrow is the greater.” But I say unto you, they are inseparable.” - Kahlil Gibran No funeral by request. Donations in Brian’s memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society of British Columbia, Summerland Unit, 202-1835 Gordon Drive, Kelowna, BC.,V1Y3H5 if friends so desire.Condolences may be directed to the family through

Discussion examines culture You are invited to the Summerland Conversation Café for an evening of lively conversation about the importance of culture to Summerland’s health and well-being. This Conversation Cafe is taking place next Thursday, September 12 at the IOOF Hall, 9536 Main St.. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the conversation starts at 7 p.m. Hosted by the Summerland Community Cultural Development Committee, this community-wide public conversation will focus on what culture means to us as individuals and as a community. Culture is that one common bond that brings the people of a community together. So please join us at the Summerland Conver-

sation Café and share your ideas on how we can strengthen and support Summerland’s cultural vitality. The style of this Conversation Cafe on Culture will be similar to the two held in August, 2011. If you attended in 2011 you know we will be dividing into small groups and encouraging everyone to share their ideas on what culture means to them and to our community and how we can strengthen the cultural assets we have and create new ones.   Culture is an inclusive term that covers the arts, multiculturalism, history, heritage resources and activities as practiced and preserved in a community.   These practices reflect the beliefs, experiences

and creative aspirations of a people in a specific geographic and political area. We have street banners, sculptures, murals and other public art. Not to mention the legacy of playwright George Ryga and numerous art studios in our town.   We also have a strong tradition of volunteerism and active service clubs. That strong sense of community spirit has been demonstrated time and time again.   We are a community that came together in the 1940s to build Thirsk Dam and in the 1970s and 1980s to build the pool and Centre Stage Theatre.   On Sept. 14 and 15 we are encouraged to “Celebrate Our Roots” at the 104th Summerland Fall Fair.

Arts PAlette

David Finnis While agriculture may be shifting from orchards to vineyards and wineries agriculture remains significant to the ambience and to the economy of Summerland. We’ve seen some festivals come and go over the years, but others remain strong. Action Festival with its influx of runners and slow pitch participants and

the Festival of Lights and the Good Will Shakespeare Festival are prime examples of how festivals add to the “joie de vivre” of communities and how cultural tourism can promote and enhance economic activities. ooo If you know of an event you feel should be included in the Arts Palette or on the Arts Council’s online calendar, email artspalette@summerlandarts. com or call 250-4043225. 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.

Health Care Cadet applicants sought The Summerland Health Care Auxiliary is accepting applications for the Candy Stripers and Health Care Cadets Program at the Dr. Andrew Pavilion, a 50-bed non-profit seniors care facility situated next to Summerland Health Centre. Those interested in volunteering must be between 13 and 18 years of age and must commit to volunteer once a week

after school for one hour and a half for September to end of May. The program includes visiting, reading, playing games, going for walks with the residents, assisting a recreation programs, decorating, seasonal crafts, baking and other activities. The next intake session is Tuesday, Sept. 24 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at the pavilion.

Ask Your Dentist...


My wife complains that I have bad breath. I brush my teeth, but according to her, it doesn’t seem to help. What can I do? - George


Dr. Cindee Melashenko

George, you are not alone! There are two likely causes of bad breath: bacteria on your tongue or bacteria under your gums. If the bacteria is located on your tongue (usually near the back), a toothbrush can effectively remove the bacteria causing the odour. There are also specially designed tongue scrapers that can be bought separately or are sometimes included on the back side of your toothbrush. Scrape your tongue daily and see if the odour is reduced. If the bacteria is located under your gums, the best solution is to see a great hygienist. When someone has bone loss around their teeth (periodontal disease), the bacteria continually grow under your gums until your hygienist cleans them out. Often bad breath is the result of these bacteria being present for long periods of time without being removed. I recommend you see your hygienist every 3 months to remove the colonies of bacteria and thereby remove the odour. Sometimes food can also be the cause of your bad breath. Mouth rinses, gum or mints can help reduce the odour until you have a chance to brush your teeth. We’re here to help in any way we can. Feel free to call, stop by, or send us an e-mail message. We are always accepting new patients and I’d be happyto answer your question in the next article (anonymously if desired). Have a great week!

We will match the competitor’s advertised price only during the effective date of the competitor’s flyer advertisement. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO LIMIT QUANTITIES (note that our major supermarket competitors may not). Due to the fact that product is ordered prior to the time of our Ad Match checks, quantities may be limited. We match identical items (defined as same brand, size, and attributes) and in the case of fresh produce, meat, seafood and bakery, we match a comparable item (as determined solely by us). We will not match competitors’ “multi-buys” (eg. 2 for $4), “spend x get x”, “Free”, “clearance”, discounts obtained through loyalty programs, or offers related to our third party operations (post office, gas bars, dry cleaners etc.).We reserve the right to cancel or change the terms of this program at any time.
