Special weather statement in effect for:
- Central Okanagan – including Kelowna
- North Okanagan – including Vernon
- South Okanagan – including Penticton
Rain with embedded thunderstorms beginning Thursday over the Southern Interior…..
A developing cold front will stall over the Southern BC Interior late Thursday and begin to transition out of the area on Friday. Rain and the threat of thunderstorms are likely beginning Thursday.
This weather situation combined with spring snow melt will lead to rising river levels and may increase the risk of flooding.
Quickly flowing water and the adjacent riverbanks are potentially unsafe. Don’t approach washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts, and keep away from creek and river banks.
The River Forecast Centre issues streamflow advisories and warnings when necessary to provide alerts to potential flood conditions in the stream systems of the province. Please refer to the River Forecast Centre website for updated streamflow advisories or warnings.
More than 170,000 elementary and high school students participated in the Student Vote program for the 2017 British Columbia provincial election.
After learning about the electoral process, researching the parties and platforms, and debating the future of B.C., students cast ballots for the official candidates running in their local electoral district.
As of 4:15 p.m. this afternoon, 1,092 schools had reported their election results, representing all 87 electoral districts in the province. In total, 170,238 ballots were cast by student participants; 163,923 valid votes and 6,315 rejected votes.
In the Student Vote results, the NDP forms government with 60 seats. The Green Party forms the Official Opposition with 14 and the Liberals win 12. One independent candidate was elected.
In the Boundary-Similkameen it was a similar story. NDP candidate Colleen Ross won the student vote with 43 per cent, followed by Vonnie Lavers of the Green party (27 per cent), Liberal Linda Larson (22 per cent) and Independent candidate Dr. Peter Entwistle (7 per cent).
In the general election, Larson took the riding with 43 per cent, followed by Ross (33 per cent), Entwistle (14 per cent) and Lavers (10 per cent).
67 racers registered to have the chance to see exactly what their ride can do. When the array of registered cars range from everyday driver type sedan, to full blown designated race cars the crowd of nearly 400 spectators is bound to be delighted all day long.
An added treat for the fans, drivers and the club members alike was the addition of three Junior Dragsters to the day. These young drivers are exactly who WCRA hopes to target with their program.
Results for the day
Jr. Dragster special event: Kyler Skjonsberg brought his 2006 Jr. Spitzer all the way from Red Deer, Alberta to take home a trophy.
Sportsmans’ Bracket: Mark Sherriff from Summerland drove his Deputy Diesel Ford F-350 Super Duty truck to victory.
Pro Bracket: Kelowna’s Gord Hoeft took his 1973 Ford Mustang to the winners’ circle.
Super Pro: Ralph Pool, from West Kelowna, raced home with the Super Pro trophy in his 1968 Plymouth Baracuda.
Bike/Sled: David Layton took the trophy home to OK Falls, with his 1999 Yamaha.
Peachland’s Phil Walter made sure he got the reaction time trophy by nailing a perfect .500 light, not once, but twice! Walter drives a 1986 Nissan truck.
The next drag racing event in Osoyoos will be on Sunday, June 4. Gates open at 9 a.m. For more information go to www.winecountryracing.ca
It finally feels like SPRING! Which means… it’s time for spring cleaning!
Right now, you can de-clutter AND support a great program for Tuc-El-Nuit school students at the same time. It’s time to Fill Up a trailer for MindUP!
Tuc-el-Nuit School is looking for donations of clothing, household goods, toys, books, etc. (virtually anything except food and furniture) by or before WEDNESDAY THIS WEEK.
These donations, which will hopefully fill to capacity the Big Brothers and Big Sisters trailer parked in our parking lot, will be sold to Value Village by the pound.
For the past four years, Big Brothers and Big Sisters (Okanagan) has fully funded and presented an incredible empathy, self-awareness and self-regulation program called MindUP to students at Tuc-el-Nuit School. Designed to support brain function, personal success, friendships and resiliency, the 15 lessons focus the mind, sharpen the senses, and introduce concepts like perspective, choosing optimism, expressing gratitude, and performing acts of kindness. The kids love the role-play activities, hands-learning opportunities, and highly engaging presentation style. Teachers love developing new tools and ideas to support students’ mindful engagement.
MindUP is fully funded and presented by the Okanagan chapter of Big Brothers and Big Sisters. That said, it is a really expensive program for Big Brothers and Big Sisters to support. All proceeds from selling the donations in the Big Brothers and Big Sisters donation trailer will go towards supporting the MindUP program in our school.
Please leave your donations beside the donation trailer in the Tuc-el-Nuit school parking lot between now and Wednesday this week!
If you have multiple boxes for pickup (perhaps you just had a yard sale and need to get rid of the unsold items??) we’ll gladly come pick them up.
Contact Benita at email@example.com for more info.
Thank you for your support!
