CENTRAL OKANAGAN - For the second time this summer, next week you may see people driving through Central Okanagan neighbourhoods and dropping pellets or packets into curbside catch basins.

Weather permitting from Monday, July 27th  through Friday, July 31th, five crews (one in a car, four on scooters) will be driving by every roadside catch basin in the City of Kelowna, District of Lake Country, a portion of West Kelowna Estates in the District of West Kelowna and Sunset Ranch in the Central Okanagan East Electoral Area, treating standing water with an environmentally approved mosquito larvicide.

During this year’s second five day blitz, approximately 10,000 roadside catch basins will be treated as part of the Regional District of Central Okanagan Mosquito Control Program.

MOVIE REVIEW: 'Wonder' is a sweetly sincere message movie
  OPINION It's hard for us cynical souls to walk into a movie advertised with the tagline "Choose kindness" and not shudder in trepidation. What sentimental hooey is this? What new hellish circle of cheese
