Japan trip tops $8,000 Travel costs paid for three municipal representatives by John Arendt Summerland’s recent Sister City delegation to Toyokoro, Japan cost the municipality more than

$8,000 as the municipality picked up the tab for two members of council and one staff member. Mayor Janice Perrino, Coun. Orv Robson and municipal planner Ian McIntosh were among the 19 people who participated in the Sister City visit.

The cost for each of the municipality’s representatives was $2,750, including flights and accommodations while in Japan. The total for these three people came to $8,250. The municipality did not pay for a spouse’s travel costs.

McIntosh said the municipality did not pay for the members of Summerland’s Sister City Committee, five students including members of Summerland’s royalty or members of the public who were part of the delegation.

“Of the 19 who went, three were paid,” McIntosh said. He added that the visit was a chance for Summerland delegates to learn about Japan and to examine ideas which may be possible here.

Bears observed near town core by John Arendt

When Melissa Campbell noticed a mother bear and two cubs in a pine tree in front of her Steven Avenue house last week, she and her husband contacted provincial conservation officials. “I’ve been watching them from the house,” she said. “It’s pretty close to town from Steven Avenue.” However, even though

the bears were near the house and on a street just two blocks from Summerland’s downtown, they were not removed. Barb Leslie, inspector with the provincial conservation service for the Okanagan region, said attempting to remove a mother bear and cubs can be dangerous. “Dealing with a sow and cubs is very difficult,” she said. She explained that if

one of the cubs is captured before the mother is captured, the result is an angry and aggressive mother bear. She said residents need to take measures to ensure bears will not want to spend time on their properties. Zoe Kirk, WildSafeBC community coordinator with the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen, said the public needs to be alerted when

a bear is in the area, until the bear leaves. She added that relocating a bear or a family of bears often results in a slow death for the animals which have been removed. Bears, especially those with cubs, will often take refuge in a tree, Kirk said. The mother ensures the cubs are in the higher branches before she climbs to a lower branch until night.

Summerland has had a number of bear incidents this year. Kirk said throughout the province, the number of calls about bears in inhabited areas was down by about 20 per cent. Then, three to four weeks ago, the trend changed and many more bear sightings were reported. One-quarter of all black bears in Canada, or around 120,000 bears, live in British Columbia.

Bike tour raises funds for youth sports Three Summerlanders are cycling along the Pacific coast to Mexico in an attempt to raise money to promote youth sports. Ella MacDonald, 20, her sister Sandra MacDonald, 24 and Gerry Hol, 20, hope to raise $15,000 during the 4,000-kilometre tour. The trip began in late September when the three started their trip in Bellingham, Wash. The route will take them south to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The three are raising money for Right

To Play, a global organization using sports and games to help children build life skills and better futures, while promoting social changes in their communities. Sports has been important for the three cyclists. Sandra MacDonald took a break from academics after high school to focus on competitive skiing. She was on the B.C. Ski Team and has raced on the international North American Cup circuit. After that season was over, she accepted an athletic

PoliCe RePoRt Driving suspensions issued

Police issued two immediate roadside prohibitions on Saturday. At 7:13 a.m. police issued a suspension to a motorist in the 13000 block of Prairie Valley Road. A 1991 Chrysler was idling in front of a house and a 20-year-old Summerland man was passed out on the front seat. Police said the man was impaired. He was issued a 90-day driving prohibition and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days. At 7 p.m., during a road check on the Princeton-Summerland Road, police stopped a 48-year-old man who was driving a 1988 Chevrolet pickup truck. The driver failed a sobriety test and was issued a 90-day driving prohibition. His vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

Conditions breached

On Saturday at 4:35 p.m., police arrested a 30-year-old Summerland man for breach of conditions. The man had previously been arrested for a domestic assault and was under conditions not to have contact with the woman. The two were in the same vehicle on Saturday. Police arrested the man. He was taken to court and given new conditions.

Apples picked

Overnight on Sunday, three bins of apples were picked from an orchard in the Canyon View area. Police are continuing to investigate the theft.

Ella MacDonald has attended two years at the University of British Columbia in the undergraduate science program. She is planning to switch to a registered nursing program. Her sports involvement has included soccer, volleyball and recreational skiing. She also enjoys surfing, sailing and windsurfing. Hol is an avid hockey player and played for the Summerland Steam Junior B hockey team last year. He attended the University of British Columbia Okanagan in the kinesiology program but is changing to the marine engineering program next fall. The plans for the cycle trip began in December, 2012, when Ella MacDonald was discussing the idea with her

older sister. “For the past two years, I kept talking about travelling, but I always went back to school,” she recalled. When she suggested the plan, Sandra MacDonald agreed to join her. As they began to prepare for the ride, Hol joined their team. The three of them believe in Right To Play’s purpose. “We have gained so much from sports that we would like to give back as much

as we can to those in underprivileged communities,” Ella MacDonald said. The three are now in Oregon. At the end of September, they had to take some time off from cycling because of the rough weather they had encountered. The trip is expected to take up to three months.

our pick

Living with bears B.C. is bear country. With an estimated 120,000 black bears — one-quarter of the entire Canadian black bear population — in this province, bear safety and bear awareness become facts of life. Last week, a mother bear and two cubs were observed in a tree on Steven Avenue for a day. The incident occurred in a residential neighbourhood and within blocks of Summerland’s downtown. It was a little too close for comfort. Each year, there are reports of bear sightings near orchards and vineyards or in the outlying, less populated parts of Summerland. In these cases, the bears are drawn by the smells of the ripening fruit and grapes. Last week’s bear incident was more disturbing because it was in a heavily populated residential area. This is not the first time bears have come close to people in Summerland. We have had other encounters this year. Such encounters are not good for those of us who live here. Bears are wild animals and potentially dangerous. The encounters are not good for the bears either. Four problem bears in Summerland have been destroyed this year and two others have been tagged so conservation officials could track their movements. We need to do more to reduce the number of bear incidents in Summerland and in the area. Conservation and bear awareness representatives have urged the public to keep attractants such as garbage, bird seed and overripe fruit where bears cannot access them. A bylaw regulating when garbage may be set out at the curb has also been proposed. In Naramata, such a bylaw helped to dramatically reduce the number of bear incidents. Still, despite the best efforts in our community, we will continue to have some contact with bears. We need to learn how to handle such encounters to avoid a serious incident in the future.

The amount of community participation in Summerland’s growth strategy is impressive. So far, more than 1,200 people have been involved in the various events or surveys. Public participation is vital in such a project. The growth strategy will affect all who live here for many years to come. It is important that such a document reflect the wishes of the public.

B.C. marijuana referendum misguided VICTORIA – I won’t be signing the “Sensible B.C.” petition to demand a provincewide referendum on marijuana enforcement. You shouldn’t either, and here are a few reasons why. Let me start by saying I’ve been calling for legalization and regulation Tom Fletcher of pot for 20 years, to conserve police resources and reduce violent crime. Our war on drugs is a failure even for heroin and cocaine, and marijuana is obviously much easier to produce. But the current effort led by Dana Larsen, B.C.’s clown prince of pot, is not only misguided, it’s dangerous. The petition does not propose legalization. It seeks to impose a provincial law that would stop B.C. police from using any resources for simple possession charges. This would create a loophole in the federal drug law. So what would that do? It would protect otherwise innocent customers of the current illegal marijuana trade, while leaving the criminal distribution business in place. For a closer look at that, I recommend reports from the Surrey Six murder trial now underway, or the upcoming case against three accused assassins of Red Scorpion gangster Jonathan Bacon in Kelowna.

Larsen’s loony law would tie police hands when they are trying to hold someone on a lesser charge while they search for evidence of something nastier. This is a source of many simple possession charges today. Police chiefs have a different idea, asking for the option of treating simple possession as a ticket offence to keep the court time to a minimum. Both of these notions have the same obvious flaws. They don’t deal with sales to minors and  they divert no revenue to government,  leaving most of that in the hands of criminal dealers who buy cocaine, guns and fancy cars. Colorado and Washington have gone the legalization route, so far without interference from their federal government. These states need money, and they don’t need more crime or ill-considered hippy gesture politics. Meanwhile in Ottawa, Health Canada is trying to convert a poorly regulated mess of small-scale medical marijuana licences to a free-market system of commercial producers. Local politicians tore a strip off Health Canada officials at their recent convention, after years of warnings that federal licences were scattered at unknown locations, often used as fronts for larger grow-ops. Mission Coun. Dave Hensman predicted that when a grower gets a letter  cancelling his licence, he’s more likely to roll up a big joint with it

than to shut down. Burnaby Coun. Nick Volkow suggested the response would echo an old Cheech and Chong routine: “Dave’s not here, man.” Here’s another reason not to support Larsen: the conduct of his organizers. One fellow set up a petition table at, of all places, the Terry Fox Hometown Run in Port Coquitlam. After scrawling “pot cures cancer” on the table, he proceeded to interrupt speeches by cancer survivors and the run itself by yelling the same false slogan. You can imagine how people with terminal cancer and their loved ones would react. Some would know that marijuana may alleviate side effects of chemotherapy, just as it can ease suffering for some multiple sclerosis patients. But the suggestion of a cure is as cruel as it is moronic. Larsen’s “cannibus” has been rolling around B.C., reaping uncritical media coverage. It even blundered into the recent Walk for Reconciliation in Vancouver, an event to mark the end of federal hearings into the effects of residential schools on aboriginal children. I wouldn’t support the Larsen bunch for anything, unless it involved them looking for jobs. Just say no. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalNews. com.

bad apples We are amazed by the brazen actions of a thief or a group of thieves who picked three bins of apples from an orchard on Canyon View Road earlier this week. This was not just a petty crime of opportunity. Coordinating such a theft took planning and likely involved several people. If anyone has information about this theft, please contact the Summerland RCMP detachment or Crime Stoppers.

Program support valued

Dear Editor: On behalf of the 2013 Summerland Royalty, I would like to sincerely thank the community of Summerland for their continued support of the Summerland Blossom Pageant and Royalty Program. The Summerland Royalty have just returned from a trip to our Sister City, Toyokoro Japan. This was truly an experience of a life time for these youth ambassadors to have the opportunity to represent our community in Toyokoro at city hall, schools, daycares, dinners, functions and in family homes. Maddy, Nicole, Tori and Natasha, I was extremely proud to witness how well you portrayed Summerland and Canada during your trip. The relationships that you have developed with Japanese dignitaries, friends and your home stay families should never be forgotten. Through relationships like these we will all learn respect and tolerance of other countries and respect our differences. Thank you to Summerland’s Sister City Committee for making these relationships possible. Thank you to the citizens of Summerland for supporting our fundraising efforts by buying our apple pies, perogies, hot dogs, fajitas and supporting our bottle drives in order to make this trip a reality for the Summerland Royalty Youth Ambassadors. We could not have done this without all of your support! Karen Hooper Blossom Pageant and Royalty Coordinator Summerland

what we are proposing to the District of Summerland in response to a letter from Henry Sielmann in last week’s Opinions section. Unfortunately, Mr. Sielmann doesn’t

address any of the topics or issues relating to the article in the Summerland Review titled Electricity Policy Requested which supposedly prompted Mr. Sielmann’s letter in the

There may not be a woman in this photo, taken around 1912, but the home (on Rumball Avenue) was owned by the Spencer sisters. In addition, the picture was taken by Mary Spencer, one of the first female professional photographers in Canada.

space heating, hot water about 15 per cent and electricity is 20 per cent (Natural Resources Canada – http://oee.nrcan. Electrical energy is not the type of energy we consume the greatest, but we do require electricity all the time as nothing happens without electricity — no communications, business or even heating. E l e c t ro M o t i o n ’ s Revolution generates electricity when it heats your home — which coincides when we have peak use for our electricity – during the heating season. Data provided by Summerland Utility and analyzed by John B. Hall (retired CEO of PLP Utility) clearly shows that reducing this peak demand by generating our own electricity during heating season will save the community millions of dollars. The Revolution will reduce energy consumption and costs for homeowners while also benefiting the utility by eliminating the need to remotely generate and distribute the electricity we generate in our homes. Ironically, electricity is globally gen-

erated using thermal (heat) methods using coal, natural gas, diesel and nuclear fuel. The US Dept. of Energy (DOE) states that ‘for all the electricity generated in the USA more that two-thirds of the fuel used is lost as heat’. This means that 3 kW of energy is required to provide 1 kW of electricity at the demand site (e.g. your home). We have thermal pictures showing our electrical substation ‘glowing’ at 32 Celsius when the temperature outside is -20 Celsius…these are some of the heat losses which the U.S. DOE statistic refers. The Revolution does not increase carbon emissions. I have lived in Summerland for 20 years and want to see my Revolution benefit my community first. For review, I have posted the presentation we gave to the District of Summerand’s council to our website at and will personally reply to any email inquires for additional information.

back to them…with both hands. I still don’t know how he knew which of us owned that iPad. Their city hall, (municipal government) manages the health care system, the education system, the social system as well as what we consider to be municipal functions. The town of Toyokoro owns and operates farmland including packaging and distribution. All of this in a town of 3,000 people.

We can learn a lot from these people and from looking outside our very small environment. I feel extremely fortunate to have been given a very intimate look into how a small rural farming town in Japan manages its business. All by very gracious and forthcoming people. I hope the Sister City program continues for a very long time to come. Ian McIntosh Summerland

Lessons learned during Toyokoro visit Dear Editor, I was one of 19 people fortunate enough to recently visit our sister city of Toyokoro in Hokkaido, Japan. It was an amazing experience and I will never be the same. The graciousness of these wonderful people was an eyeopener. Watching our Summerland royalty expand their horizons and engage with a very different culture was inspiring.

I personally got to view how the Japanese deal with parking (where land is at a premium). Their parkades are like car vending machines…you drive in, pay your fee and your car is whisked away, either underground or up several stories to a storage spot to be retrieved when you return. No forgetting where you parked your car. The Japanese have no garbage receptacl es…an yw he re.

You create garbage, you take it with you. No garbage cans on the streets, in restaurants, in washrooms or in stores. Everything is spotless. Most commuters ride bicycles. Women in business suits and high heels, office workers, everyone rides bicycles. They don’t have bicycle lanes, as all bicycles go on the sidewalks…and no one wears bicycle helmets. Turns out they believe pedes-

trians and cyclists mix better than cars and cyclists. Their sidewalks are much wider to accommodate both, and they have a textured strip to aid the visually impaired. Their honesty is incredible. One of our travellers left their iPad on the railing of a communal deck outside our hotel room. They were very concerned but upon our return a gentleman was waiting at the bus door to hand it

Events mark Small Business Week Did you know that in B.C., small businesses, defined as those with fewer than 50 employees, or selfemployed without paid help, represent 98 per cent of all companies? And did you know that small businesses provide nearly 56 per cent of privatesector jobs in B.C., and employ more than one million people? Here in B.C., the small business community contributes 26 per cent of the province’s gross domestic product. These businesses are definitely the engine of our economy. Canadians have been celebrating this fact since 1979 when business people in the Fraser Valley launched the first Small Business Week event. Since then Small Business Week has been held every October to recognize and celebrate the outstanding contribution of these businesses.

This year, during Small Business Week, the Summerland Chamber of Commerce is hosting an inspiration and education week to celebrate our business community. On Oct. 22, we will welcome NHL coach, author, and Stanley Cup champion, Ryan Walter to Centre Stage. Now a nationally recognized speaker and president of the Abbotsford Heat, Walter says the difference between winning and losing has little to do with talent or coaching. The difference often comes down to how leadership fuels and sustains its team’s hungry spirit. The first 150 ticket holders will also receive an autographed copy of Walter’s new book: Hungry – Fuelling Your Best Game. On October 23 and 24, the Okanagan region’s own media

We are looking forward

to having her teach us how to best engage others using social media tools and strategies. The week of learning and inspiration will culminate with a Tweet-up, a networking social where we can practice our new skills. These events are open to the community. Tickets for all the events are available through the Summerland Chamber of Commerce office. More information is available at Please join us to celebrate Small Business Week.

Preoccupation with growth is a mistake

Dear Editor: Summerland city council’s preoccupation with growth completely ignores the fact that we do not have to grow. The key to stable, productive and safe communities is to establish and maintain sustainable economic activities. Over time that will allow the city to fine tune infrastructures to serve the needs of the community. One of our city council’s most important mandates is to protect our properties and our quality of life. For those members of city council who are not sophisticated enough to appreciate the laid back friendly rural lifestyle we have adopted over the years the solution is simple: Move to a larger centre like Kelowna, Toronto, or Detroit, where they can satiate their cravings for all the things that destroy societies, like drugs, noise, and pollution. Forget about building sky scrapers and high-density and high social cost developments, not to mention helter skelter rural developments that are extremely expensive to service, instead of orderly infill developments from the city centre out.

Stop wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars we don’t have on plug-ins for electric cars that will never be used by anybody and unsightly electronic billboards that only adds to the clutter. It is also time to start looking for undeveloped land to store all those RVs that are beginning to make our residential neighbourhoods look like trailer parks. A high priority should also be given to upgrade our city’s bylaws from rural to city status to give the bylaws department the tools it needs to curb the proliferation of hedges, fences, wood piles, farm equipment, unlicensed and derelict vehicles on our residential properties and public parks and boulevards. The smart way to deal with distressed properties is by adopting and enforcing land use by-laws that does not allow unsightly premises to develop. For the councillors who still remember why they were elected, it’s time to forget about their political ambitions and personal interests and begin to address the real needs of the community.

Sister City delegation

Joined by representatives from Toyokoro, Japan, Summerland’s Sister City delegation prepared for numerous events during their recent visit to the community.

Culture bonds formed through Sister City ties Continued from Page 1

“For the value we received, I’d say it was well worth it,” McIntosh said. He said the delegates were able to see some of Toyokoro’s developments and projects during various excursions during the trip. In addition, the cultural exchanges over the years have been worthwhile. McIntosh said one Toyokoro resident, who visited Summerland when she

was 15, spoke to this year’s delegates and thanked them for the experience. Now 37, she said the visit to Summerland was a life-changing experience for her. During this year’s trip, Chris McIntosh, a Grade 2 teacher at Giant’s Head School, brought a banner which was made by her students to present to the people of Toyokoro. During the visit, videos were created for her Summerland

students. The videos can be seen on Darlene Forsdick of Summerland’s Sister City Committee said the ongoing ties between Summerland and Toyokoro are important for both communities. “These visits bring with them the opportunity to strengthen international ties and form cultural bonds that will seat firmly in the minds of their children and ours,”

she said. The Sister City agreement between Summerland and Toyokoro was signed in 1994. Since that time, 101 adults and 39 students from Summerland have visited Toyokoro, while 203 people, 114 of them students, have come from Toyokoro to Summerland. A delegation from Toyokoro will be in Summerland next August.

Beitels celebrate 75th anniversary by Carla McLeod Special to the Review A Summerland couple have accomplished something that very few others have or ever will. Joe and Bessie Beitel have been married for 75 years. They met through the matchmaking

efforts of family members. They courted for one year and were married in 1938. Three years later they left the farm in Saskatchewan and moved to B.C. Over the next 41 years they raised three children and moved to several different commun-

ities throughout the province, where Joe served as pastor and built new parsonages. Bessie worked in retail. They retired in 1982 and moved to Summerland in 1999. As in every couple’s life, there were some rough times. “When we first

got married we were poor,” Joe explained. They also experienced tragedy when they lost their son in an accidental death. The Beitels said their faith sustained them during difficult times. “We were serving the Lord,” Bessie said. “It gave us a hope. The future looked so much brighter even though there were difficult years. Our faith is really what kept us going and we had good health, both of us,” Joe added. They also learned to manage disputes without hurting one another. “We never went to sleep at night without saying we were sorry or making up,” Bessie said. Neither one of them ever would have considered separating. Joe referred to what they shared

as a “steadfast love,” saying, “We just had a love for each other that kept us together and here we are after all these years.” And what do they look forward to? Joe answered, “We have a hope that the next life

is going to be heaven,” Joe said. “The future is as bright as the promises of God. Everything will turn out okay.” When asked if they would still be together they responded with, “Yes, we believe

so.” If you know a positive story about someone from our community, contact Carla McLeod at or contact the Summerland Review newsroom at 250-494-5406.

This gripping historical drama recounts the events leading up to the national plebiscite on Dictator Augusto Pinochet’s political future in 1988 Chile. Savvy ad man René Saavedra is recruited to spearhead the “NO” campaign and quickly realizes that not only does he have to persuade voters on how to mark their ballots, he first has to convince a dispirited, skeptical population to even go to the polls. Against stacked odds and with scant resources, the campaign gains momentum and the tensions and dangers build. Fascinating and suspenseful, bitingly funny and smartly compiled, this is a vibrant account of a powerful political coup. DIRECTOR: Pablo Larrain; CAST: Gael Garcia Bernal, Alfredo Castro PG ~ subtitled Pre-purchased Tickets $13 are available at the Penticton Art Gallery, 199 Marina Way (250-493-2928) and the Book Shop, 242 Main Street (250492-6661).

Ryan Donaldson then scored at 11:27, with the assist by Sam Nigg. After a Grand Forks goal in the second period, Paulsen Lautard of the Steam scored at 7:56.

Scott and Braden Saretsky had the assists. In the third period, the Border Bruins added a power play goal, but Summerland responded with two more goals, both

by Donaldson to end the game. The first, at 11:05, was unassisted. The second, at 10:45, had assists from Piers Egan and Robertson. On Saturday, the

Steam travelled to Princeton to face the Posse in a 4-1 win. DaCosta began the scoring with a power play goal at 14:45. Assists were by Donaldson and Scott. Scott scored for the Steam at 2:22 with the assist by Easton Bodeux. In the second period, Cooper Holick scored at 14:14, with the assist by Braden Saretsky.

Authors to hold book launches This weekend two Okanagan authors will be holding book launches in our community. October is Women’s History Month in Canada and Summerland author, Sherril Foster has written a book about a local woman in celebration. Mary Spencer became known, especially in B.C., following her contract with the Vancouver Daily Province newspaper in which her wellknown photographs of the infamous train robber, Bill Miner, appeared in 1906. Mary received a little recognition for this assignment in Kamloops, but there is much more to her story which does not

include the fact that the woman photographer who appeared in the 1982 movie, The Grey Fox was Miner’s paramour! Mary lived in Summerland from 1911 to 1938 and her beautiful fieldstone home still stands. She was an accomplished artist in many art forms, which while living here included painting on china. The launch for Sherril Foster’s book A Steady Lens; the True Story of Pioneer Photographer, Mary Spencer will take place at the Kettle Valley Steam Railway Prairie Valley Station, 18404 Bathville Road, this Saturday, Oct. 12, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

For those who enjoy dancing to the music of an earlier era, monthly dances have resumed. The Summerland Dance Club has arranged the dances for the past 60 years. The first of this season’s dances was held on Saturday at the Rosedale Room in the Summerland Legion. Dances will continue on Nov. 9, Dec. 7, Jan. 11, Feb. 8, March 8, April 12 and May 10. George Sutton, a member of the Summerland Dance Club, said the styles of the

waltz, fox trot, jive and polka dances and the live music are from an earlier era. “This is going back in time,” he said. Public dances were held regularly after World War II. At its peak, the dance club had 40 members, but today there are 16 couples, Sutton said. He added that the club is intended for couples, not for single people. Those interested in joining are asked contact Anne Ling at 250-494-7168 or Ron Hack at 250-486-6858.

To those going through a separation or divorce, the holiday sparkle has dimmed and holiday cheer may be a painful memory. You need the support of family and friends this holiday season, but you will have to be wise in choosing which of those people are going to be supportive and will help you move through this season in a healthy manner. A safe place to find people who understand is through a divorce recovery support group. Such a group can provide you with friends who understand what you are going through and who can be a mutual support through the

holiday season. DivorceCare meets weekly to help you meet these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each DivorceCare session has two distinct elements: a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and a small group time to discuss what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members. DivorceCare is a free, 13-week course that begins at Summerland Baptist Church Sunday, Oct. 20, 5 to 7 p.m. To sign up or find out more about DivorceCare, call Summerland Baptist Church at 250-4943881.

Dances planned

Arts PAlette

David Finnis The Summerland Museum will also feature a showcase about Mary which will be on display during Women’s History month. Kelowna-based artist Julia Trops will be signing her new book Art and Money on Saturday, Oct. 12, 1 to 3 p.m. at Margot

Stoltz new AIR (artist in residence) studio, located on the Wharton Street entrance of the Summerland Art Gallery. This is a book on, well, art and money, and is based on her interactions with artists, businesses, and the community over the past 12 years. On Tuesday, Oct. 22 at the Summerland Library The Friends of the Summerland Library Society is sponsoring a seminar for authors on publishing and marketing their manuscripts. The discussion will explore the many choices that confront the unpublished writer and how to go about evaluating them. Seating is lim-

ited and participants are asked to register at the Library before Oct. 15. And since we are on the topic of books and authors you might want to mark Nov. 23 and 24 on your calendar for the fifth annual Authors and Artists Christmas Faire being presented

by Red Toque Books and the Shatford Centre. 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@ or call 250-404-3225. and artspalette The Arts Palette is written by David Finnis, publicity chair and president of the Summerland Community Arts Council, P.O.

It’s foolhardy to head out in a poorly maintained vehicle in the dead of winter, of course, but even vehicle owners in temperate zones need to consider a fall car-care check. • Read your owner’s manual and follow the manufacturer’s recommended service schedules. Check Engine Performance. • Fuel—Put a bottle of fuel de-icer in your tank once a month. • Oil—Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual. • Cooling System—The cooling system should be flushed and refilled as recommended. • Check Heater/Defroster & Windshield Wipers—Replace old blades. • Stock up on windshield washer solvent—you’ll be surprised how much you use. and always carry an ice-scraper. • Have a mechanic check: • Battery • Lights • Exhaust System • Tires • Transmission —Often neglected until a major failure, routine checks and fluid changes at prescribed intervals can prevent very costly repairs down the line. • Emergencies—Carry gloves, boots, blankets, flares, a small shovel, sand, tire chains, a flashlight, and a cell phone. Put a few “high-energy” snacks in your glove box.
