Removed from the cemetery Flower pots, ceramic figures and other mementoes left on graves at Canyon View Cemetery were moved to a nearby municipal property earlier this month during a clean-up initiative at the cemetery. Family members who had placed the items have expressed outrage over the action.

Grave items removed Flower pots and mementoes moved during clean-up effort by John Arendt Flower pots, ceramic angels and other items placed on graves at Canyon View Cemetery were removed earlier this month and taken to a nearby municipal property.

The removal, which was done as part of a larger maintenance and clean-up effort at the cemetery, resulted in an outcry from the public, especially from those who had left the items at the graves. At a meeting of municipal council on Monday morning, several of those affected by the decision asked why the items had been removed from the

cemetery. “I was absolutely shocked,” said Pat Horner, whose father,

removal of the items. “I find it very disrespectful for the living and

the dead,” she said. “It hurts.” Margaret Lynum, whose husband is buried at the cemetery, said the items had been placed on the cement pad, not on the grass. “Why can’t we do what we want with this piece of cement?” she asked. “This decision was illadvised to say the least,” said Chris Beaton.

No changes to crosswalk Crosswalks near intersection of Main Street and Rosedale Avenue to remain as is by John Arendt Municipal council will not change the crosswalks on Rosedale Avenue near Main Street, despite a request to add another marked crosswalk. At the municipal council meeting on Monday, council voted to keep the intersection as it is. Earlier, Dave Simpson had

submitted a petition to council, with more than 1,500 names asking for a crosswalk to be added at Main Street and Rosedale Avenue. At present, there are marked crosswalks in place nearby, but not directly at the intersection. “People are trained to cross at an intersection,” Simpson said. “Whether or not you mark it as a crosswalk, it’s going to be used.” Acting administrator Ken Ostraat said the intersection is an unmarked legal crossing, but the safest places to cross Rose-

dale Avenue are at the marked crosswalks. Mayor Janice Perrino said adding a marked crosswalk would also mean the municipality would have to close the vehicle drop-off area in front of the medical building, since the drop-off area would interfere with a crosswalk. She added that the safety of the intersection is also a concern. “I want people to be as safe as possible,” she said. Coun. Martin Van Alphen said the loss of the drop-off

area would outweigh any benefits from an additional marked crosswalk. “The pullout at the building is necessary,” he said. “With a crosswalk, we’d lose that.” Coun. Peter Waterman said the petition needs to be considered. “I’m not about to ignore 1,500 people who have a difficulty with this issue,” he said. A resolution to leave the crosswalk unchanged was approved, with Waterman opposed. Coun. Bruce Hallquist was not present at the meeting.

POLICE REPORT Lost camera found A camera lost at the Peach Orchard Water Park has been turned in to the Summerland RCMP office. The owner can identify it and pick it up there.

Fake money order Police warn residents to be careful when making deals over the Internet. A Summerland man told RCMP on June 8 that he sold an all-terrain vehicle to someone from out of town who gave him a fraudulent money order.

Sailboat adrift A small sailboat was found drifting in Okanagan Lake at Trout Creek June 6. It is a 12-foot yellow and white Koma. The boat is stored at a residence on Nixon Road. The owner should contact police to retrieve it.

Hit and run suspect Summerland RCMP assisted the Penticton RCMP detachment following a hit and run incident June 9. Summerland police stopped a suspect in a silver pickup at Highway 97 and Prairie Valley Road and issued a three-day driving suspension for consuming alcohol while driving. The vehicle was impounded and the driver, a 23-year-old Summerland man, faces other charges related to the hit and run in Penticton.

Bluegrass music Loren Legg, left, and Max Legg were among the many participants at the Summerland Bluegrass Festival on the weekend. The event, at the Summerland Rodeo Grounds, drew musicians and fans from around the province and beyond.

Cemetery policy reviewed Continued from Page 1

Alicia Jelen said she could not understand why the decision to move the items had been made. “I just can’t understand how someone could do this,” she said. Members of council were outraged by the removal of the items. “The kind of cleanup you’ve seen has never been done

in the Summerland Review twice, on March 22 and March 29. Notices were also placed at the cemetery. More than 2,000 people are buried at the cemetery and the municipality does not have a complete database with contact information for the next of kin for each of them. Perrino said the notice could have

How we can resolve this I’m not quite sure.” Dave Hill before,” said Mayor Janice Perrino. “We know what happened was wrong. We know it was a mistake.” Dave Hill, public works superintendent for the municipality, said he is responsible for the decision to remove the items. “There wasn’t even a thought in my mind we would have such an outpouring of sadness,” he said. “How we can resolve this I’m not quite sure.” He said the cleanup was advertised

been handled more effectively and should have been included in the municipality’s monthly newsletter. Hill said Summerland and other communities have regulations restricting what may be placed at a grave. Summerland’s bylaw was revised in 2007. Members of council want to ensure a similar incident does not happen in the future. “Isn’t it possible to have a little more flexibility?” asked Coun.

Lloyd Christopherson. “I think somewhere along the line, we have to come to a compromise here.” Coun. Orv. Robson said the removal of the items makes the cemetery look bleak. “It looks like a moonscape right now,” he said. “We need to have some beautification there.” Coun. Peter Waterman apologized for the lack of sensitivity shown and asked council to revisit the bylaw. “Perhaps we should be examining what we do in beautification and who’s responsible for it,” he said. “It’s extremely meaningful to the families what’s put there.” “My heart goes out to the public and also to the staff members who had to do the job,” said Coun. Martin Van Alphen. “I’m sure it wasn’t pleasant. I personally think the bylaw needs to be readdressed.” Mayor Janice Perrino said council will examine the bylaw over the next two to four weeks. A resolution to revisit the bylaw was passed unani-

mously. Coun. Bruce Hall-

quist was not present at the meeting.

Health Matters June is Stroke Awareness Month and there’s news that quantifies the relationship between stroke and diabetes. A study from Columbia University in New York found that people who have had type 2 diabetes for 10 years or more have 3 times the risk of having a stroke. Researchers emphasized the need to do everything we can to avoid diabetes: get regular exercise, eat a healthy diet, see your physician regularly and don’t smoke. An apple a day may or may not keep the doctor away, but evidence is suggesting that an orange a day can help keep a stroke away! Of course, there are many benefits to eating citrus foods, such as vitamin C and fibre, but it may be the flavenoids they contain which can reduce the risk of ischemic (blood clot) strokes. They seem to protect blood vessels and reduce inflammation leading to a 19% drop in stroke risk. Bad cholesterol? Good cholesterol? Do you know the difference? Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) is the bad cholesterol which clogs arteries, forming plaques which can dislodge and cause heart attack or stroke. High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is the good cholesterol and its job is to remove LDL from the arteries and transport it back to the liver for destruction. Low levels of HDL can be a greater risk factor than high levels of LDL! High HDL not only reduces heart attack and stroke risk, but is also associated with a lower risk of dementia. It seems to reduce the plaques thought to cause Alzheimer’s Disease. There are many non-drug measures to increase HDL: exercise, moderate alcohol consumption (1 drink/day for women; 1-2 drinks per day for men), weight loss, avoidance of trans fats and a diet high in fruit, vegetables and low-fat dairy products. Managing cholesterol can be a complicated dance, but our pharmacists can help you learn the steps. Visit us soon!

A public service message from Bell, Jacoe & Company

Canada vs. The USA Do you believe we are becoming more and more like our American cousins? Well, in some respects their culture has been a very bug influence on ours. Whether or not that is a good thing is a matter of opinion and for that matter who's opinion it is. From a legal stand point, there are many areas where the American judicial system has encountered situations years ahead of the Canadian experience and as a result has been used as a guide by the Canadian courts in dealing with that situation. One aspect of our two legal systems will never be the same however, and that is the influence that juries play in creating law and awards. In America, a jury has a relatively free reign in handing out awards in civil matters. In Canada there are strict limitations on the amounts a Judge or Jury can award. The reason for this column? An article in the Canadian Lawyer Magazine estimated the value of all monetary awards given by juries in the US in 2002. The number was $283 BILLION dollars. Something to think about.

Respecting graves The removal of mementoes and objects from Canyon View Cemetery is an incredibly poor error in judgement. The items were removed recently as municipal crews were doing maintenance at the cemetery. By doing this, the workers violated extremely personal spaces. It has been said that a grave is a place to mark one’s place in the world. It is also a place for family and friends to remember and grieve the loss of a loved one. Headstones are in place at most of the graves, but many families also will leave flowers or mementoes. Small statues, plaques and gifts have been placed at many of the graves. A municipal policy prohibits many of the items at graves, but this policy had not been enforced in the past. With these items in place, the cemetery felt like a place of remembrance and a place where Summerlanders could mourn in their own ways. When the items were removed, the cemetery felt much colder, much less inviting. An expression of grief has been denied. This decision affects the entire community. Most Summerlanders know people who are buried at Canyon View Cemetery. Many of us have buried our own loved ones there. We have a connection to the place. Removing the items from the graves was not just a poor decision on the part of the municipal workers. It was also a violation of personal spaces and a betrayal of trust for those who had placed items at the graves. People are outraged over the lack of respect shown at the cemetery. Trust has been lost. It is now time for apologies and it is time to do whatever is necessary to correct the damage, as much as is possible. And it is time to revisit the policy about items placed on graves, so an incident like this one will not happen again.

Students at Summerland Secondary School were recently recognized for excellence in academics, athletics, arts, leadership, service and other areas. T h o s e students who received the awards have made a consistent effort over the past year. We congratulate them for their work this year and hope they continue to make the effort to excel in the future.

Goodbye greenhouse gas goals VICTORIA – In February this column asked the question: “Are B.C.’s greenhouse gas reduction targets history?” The answer is contained in a new draft plan from BC Hydro on how to meet future power demand. And while it’s not explicitly stated, the answer is yes. The draft plan was released in May for discussion purposes, but so far there hasn’t been much discussion. This is surprising Tom Fletcher given some of the recommendations, such as firing up the Burrard Thermal natural gas power plant more often and buying fossil fuel power from the North American market to keep up to demand. The plan confirms a few things that have been evident for a while. Dreams of exporting B.C. hydroelectric power are gone for the foreseeable future. And with mining ramping up along with natural gas development and population growth, BC Hydro now projects electricity demand could rise by 50 per cent over the next 20 years. The emergence of huge shale gas sources in B.C. and across the United States has changed the North American energy picture dramatically, as U.S. electricity producers replace coal by burning cheaper and cleaner gas to ramp up power production. B.C. is losing gas market

share in the U.S., its only export customer for heating fuel and electricity use. Former premier Gordon Campbell’s climate goals officially remain in place: 33 per cent greenhouse gas reduction by 2020 and a whopping 80 per cent by 2050. If the gas boom proceeds as planned, B.C. domestic emissions will not be down, but up considerably by 2020. Premier Christy Clark has a new target for 2020: three liquefied natural gas produc-

to develop the Horn River and Montney shale gas deposits in northeast B.C. I asked David Pryce, vicepresident of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, why so much gas is being developed now. He said producers have made huge investments in B.C. shale gas drilling rights, and are in an international race to supply LNG to Asian countries where the price is currently four times higher than in North America. Whatever the domestic price,

If the gas boom proceeds as planned, B.C. domestic emissions will not be down, but up considerably by 2020. tion lines feeding high-pressure tankers at Kitimat, for export to Asia. Not only will B.C. need to buy gas-fired power from outside the province to keep up to industrial and residential demand, but the natural gas industry will need its own new gas-fired electricity to produce LNG for export. Natural gas passed forestry as B.C.’s top resource revenue source many years ago. In 2005, the volatile gas price spiked up and produced $1 billion in windfall profits that allowed the B.C. government to buy a rare period of public sector labour peace through the 2010 Olympics. Now a glut of shale gas has pushed the North American price down from its historic range of $4 to $6 per thousand cubic feet to about $2.40. Despite that low price, gas producers in B.C. are going flat out

B.C. gas producers have to show LNG investors such as Mitsubishi and Korea Gas that they can fill a steady procession of LNG tankers at a competitive rate. If LNG doesn’t fly here, B.C.’s gas export market soon evaporates. Currently gas producers pay about $400 million a year in royalties, and that much again to buy up shale gas drilling rights. The industry already employs about 12,000 workers in B.C. The B.C. government has little choice but to redefine its climate targets. Instead of cutting domestic emissions, it will try to take credit for displacing coal power in Asia. Fortunately, B.C.’s main coal exports are for high-grade coal used in steel-making. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews. com.

culls The intersection at Main Street and Rosedale Avenue has been an ongoing problem in Summerland. Marked crosswalks are in place nearby, but not at the intersection. On Monday, a petition with more than 1,500 signatures was presented to municipal council. People have been unhappy about the intersection since the upgrade work was completed at Rosedale Avenue and Prairie Valley Road. We need a safe intersection, but we also need to ensure this issue does keep returning.

Summerland Review Thursday, June 14, 2012







N 5


Cemetery has become desolate Dear Editor: A cemetery should be a place where one goes to find comfort and peace while reflecting on memories of loved ones. It should be inviting and yet offer seclusion. That is not the case of our own Canyon View Cemetery. It has always seemed cold and desolate. It offers no benches, no flowers, and no continuous perimeter vegetation

to act as a buffer from the outside world. No ambience whatsoever. It feels like a place where you do not want to be. Last Friday I went to visit my dad at the cemetery. I was shocked at discovering that the flowers I had placed there recently had been removed. Gone was the tiny angel from his headstone that has watched over him

since 1995. Gone was everything family members had placed lovingly on numerous headstones throughout the cemetery. Upon leaving I noticed the spanking new signage attached to the entrance gates stating that only fresh flowers are allowed between April 1 and November. Why? Considering that we can have frost every month except

the summer months why would anybody leave fresh flowers that would last only a day or two at the most? Many family members do not live in our city and cannot afford to have someone purchase and place fresh arrangements on an almost daily basis. Artificial flowers last for days and weeks, allowing us to leave some colour and brightness behind, letting our


lost and loved ones know we are thinking of them. I can appreciate that there needs to be guidelines as to what can be placed on headstones, as well as restrictions to size and placements so as to not unduly impede the ongoing maintenance of the cemetery. Does the cemetery committee not have a heart and soul? Do they have no respect for the pioneers who came here and contributed to the growth of our

community? Do any of them not have family or friends who are resting up there? Do they feel this is the way to honour the memories of veterans who sacrificed their lives for the rest of us? My dad, Ted Dunsdon, who was born in 1906 and was Summerland’s first white male baby deserves better than what is there now. So do the rest of the people who toiled and made Summerland what it is today.

City Hall should reconsider the money they arbitrarily decided to spend on some glitzy sign, and dedicate that money to something more deserving, the final resting place for our citizens. A place that is a little more dignified, a place that reflects the love and respect we have for our family, friends, pioneers and veterans, a place where you really want to be. Louise (Dunsdon) Thomsen Summerland

Disrespect shown by cemetery workers Dear Editor: Today the Canyonview Cemetery was cleared out of all statues, flowers — everything other then the headstones — with no notice to families or friends. Staff were instructed to remove everything and pile it across the street for anyone to take away. My two-year-old son has been buried there for several years and we place statues and butterflies, etc. on his plot during the spring and summer and have never had a problem. Today we were lucky. I received a message and was able to retrieve most of my

son’s items from the pile, but there were families that were not as lucky. We were told council would be meeting to discuss this and to call Town Hall next week to see if we can bring the items back. The disrespect shown today towards my family and my son are unthinkable. At this point I will not be taking items back, and I will warn anyone I know that has to make the decision of where to place a loved one not to go to Summerland. I would like to hear what the Town of Summerland has to say as to why this has happended. Why

were families not contacted and asked to remove items? Why was nothing in local newspapers? The photo I have of the pile of items left for disposal should not be acceptable. There are families tonight that have no idea what has happended. Families that do not live close by. Families whose grief is still raw and should not be strained anymore than it already is. Families like mine who take our school aged children to leave birthday presents for an older brother they will never meet. Katie Weitz Summerland

Mementoes removed Happy Fathers’ Day

Photo courtesy of the Summerland Museum

Dad, grandfather, uncle, or a special mentor — Fathers’ Day is for celebrating fatherhood, the paternal bond and the influence of father-figures in our lives. Main Street (Granville Road) wasn’t home to a lot of stores when this photo was taken around 1907, but young Bill Ritchie was content to just hang out with John Ritchie, his dad’s cousin. Bill was lucky to have a Dad and another father-figure to look up to. Enjoy Fathers’ Day this Sunday — spend some quality time with Dad. In fact, why not bring him to the Summerland Museum to stir some memories and watch the model train.

Dear Editor: As I went to visit my husband’s grave after only a week since last there, I found all the mementoes and flowers had been taken out. They have been there for three years, some people a lot longer. These were placed in a pile, some broken and some no longer even there. It would have been nice if there had been a notice in the mail so we could have taken the things

that mean something to us. I only saw a very small notice on the fence for the first time when I went up only because the stuff was all gone and I don’t use that gate. It stated nothing is to be there from April to November. I think this was very disrespectful to everyone. Shame on you, Summerland. Donna Waddington Summerland.

Thursday, June 14, 2012 Summerland Review


Treatment of graves insensitive Dear Editor: Upon attending my late husband’s grave site at Canyon View Cemetery on Sunday, June 10, I was horrified to discover that maintenance had cleared the entire cemetery of all personal effects such as photos, flowers (organic and synthetic) and in my case, my granddaughter’s painting and a jewelry box.

There was no public announcement of an intended clean up and everything that was collected together was dumped unceremoniously behind a tool shed. I spoke to others whose loved ones’ graves were stripped bare; in many cases, these are the graves of recently deceased individuals. It is unclear to me who came up with this obnoxious plan.

Removal disrespectful Dear Editor: Upon reading Louise (Dunsdon) Thompsen’s letter, my wife and I drove to Canyon View Cemetery to see for ourselves and sure enough, the miniature yellow rose my wife had planted in the provided hole in front of her parents’ grave not only had been pulled out and discarded, but the

soil that had come out with the rose was just laying there not even cleaned up. On further looking around, I was shocked to see other grave sites in the same sad state. Further, in the children’s section, mementos of little ones’ lives had also been carted away. Once a place alive with memories now

has become a sterile field with a bad haircut. How thoughtless. How hurtful. How disrespectful. In the sense that graves are sacred to loved ones, this is akin to vandalism. Shame on our public works and shame on our mayor and council. Eric Cooper Summerland

Pet cemeteries are given more respect than this. A grave, and a cemetery, is a sacred site. It is a reasonable expectation that the maintenance of the cemetery is done in such a way as to respect the deceased and those that are maintaining their memory.

Feasibility study needed for national park in region Dear Editor: We needed a South Okanagan-Similkameen National Park Feasibility Study. Collectively we of the South OkanaganSimilkameen needed to see the product of eight years of rigorous scientific study reporting on the feasibility of a national park here. The study, a collaboration of senior bureaucrats within Parks Canada and the B.C. government, incorporates studies of a wide spectrum of knowledgeable experts – from biology through to economics. The study is also the product of hundreds of meetings with local individuals, organizations, and businesses. The report of that comprehensive SOS national park feasibility study was recently released as a result of a Freedom of Information request. The report shows quantitatively and unequivocally that a national park here

is not only feasible but would provide what a substantial majority of local people want. Park supporters outnumber opponents two to one. The report identifies solutions for every concern. The park can be established respectfully to those stakeholders with legitimate concerns. The Feasibility Study recommends governments of Canada and British Columbia proceed toward establishment of a national park reserve here. A national park would be much better than current. It would be better for people, better for the land, and, better for nature. The South Okanagan-Similkameen is one of the four most endangered ecosystems in Canada. Landscape fragmentation and degradation put nature ever-more at risk here. Further, the federal

What occurred here is insensitive, tactless and negligent. I understand the need to maintain a neatly-kept cemetery. But please, do the memory of those buried the courtesy of leaving those personal elements place at a grave site alone. Margreet Vandersluys Summerland

government would bear the lion’s share of costs of establishing and managing the national park, thereby relieving B.C. of a cost burden, which judging by provincial budget cutbacks, is hard to bear. Management by Parks Canada would be far superior to B.C.’s management capacity. So now it is unequivocally documented that benefits a national park are high and costs are low. In that context it is baffling in the extreme that our B.C. politicians apparently want to walk away from this golden opportunity. They reject the majority of locals that support the park, and the professional advice of their own senior bureaucrats. To justify that untenable position they have offered no quantitative reasoning of the scientific caliber of this feasibility study. Can we collectively afford to let our B.C. politician’s anti-

science position prevail? It is my conviction that if together we lack the courage to establish a national park here we will guarantee our enduring legacy of shame. If we forfeit this opportunity it will never come again. Future generations, will look back, from their perspective of a once-beautiful landscape lost to fragmentation and say, “While they had the opportunity why did our forefathers not conserve this land? Why were they so short-sighted?” Let’s inform our politicians that we prefer instead an honorable legacy. One in which future generations will look back with gratitude saying, “Thank goodness our forefathers created this cherished South Okanagan-Similkameen National Park while it was still feasible.” Bob Lincoln Kaleden

Summerland Review Thursday, June 14, 2012

COUNCIL REPORT The regular meeting of municipal council was held on June 11 in council chambers. All members of council except Coun. Bruce Hallquist were present.

Resolutions Tree removal approved The municipality will remove a mature London Plane tree on the boulevard adjacent to Turner Street. The decision came because of concerns the tree was obscuring the sign at the Petro-Canada service station at the corner of Highway 97 and Rosedale Avenue. The property owner must pay for the cost of replacing the removed tree with two new trees, to a value of $500.

Road closure approved Council granted a special event road closure for the Valley First Granfondo Axel Merckx Okanagan on July 8.

Road closed for anniversary Council approved a road closure request for Penny Lane Bargain Outlet’s 10th anniversary on Saturday, July 7. The closure is for four to six parking stalls on Wharton Street and for the closure of Victoria Road from Main Street to the lane directly behind Main Street.

Container purchase approved The municipality will purchase 20 roll off containers for the landfill operations. The cost of the containers is $5,467 plus freight and taxes. Funding for the purchase will come from the landfill reserve fund.

Beverage license granted Council approved a special occasion liquor license for the Summerland Slo-Pitch Association’s annual tournament June 23 and 24 at Dale Meadows Sports Complex.

Sign meeting approved Municipal council will meet with the provincial Ministry of Transportation to determine the current regulations and guidelines for highway signs. The resolution came following a recommendation by the Economic Development Strategic Action Committee.




Use of rock questioned A low-impact drainage system along Kirk Avenue in Trout Creek has neighbours concerned about the safety of the street. The road was designed with a low curb. Large rocks have been set beside the road instead of the more conventional storm drain system. Marilyn Hansen, a Trout Creek resident, said the rocks are a hazard for children cycling in the area. “Every day I see little kids on bikes,

Ian McIntosh said the low-impact drainage system is simpler than the conventional storm drainage system, but the municipality’s plan was for xeriscape landscaping and fine gravel. “It’s not what we thought we were getting,” he said. “What happened on Kirk Avenue is not what we were hoping to end up with.” McIntosh added that the municipality is reviewing its subdivision and development bylaw.

The wine tourism industry is ensuring Okanagan College’s Viticulture students receive some extra fruit for their educational labour. The Okanagan Wine Festivals Society has collaborated with TricorBraun WinePak to provide an annual $1,000 award to a student enrolled fulltime in the College’s Viticulture Certificate program at the Penticton campus.

Eric von Krosigk, chair of the Okanagan Wine Festivals Society, said the award illustrates its full-spectrum support for the wine industry in the Okanagan. “With this type of bursary, we underscore the importance of viticulture to our wine industry,” said von Krosigk, who is also the winemaker and viticulturist at Summerhill Pyramid Winery.

Personalized Gifts Personalized gifts can show that special man in your life that you care about him in a special way. Instead of a run-of-the-mill item pulled off a store shelf, a personalized gift can feature a name, date or sentiment right on the gift itself. Think about giving Dad a personalized plaque that designates his work area in the garage or a pocket lighter or photo frame engraved with a special message or his name.

Or he may have a restaurant he insists on going to all the time, so guaranteeing a gift card to said restaurant will be a hit. If Dad appreciates not only the taste, but also the culture of food, plan a tour of food shops in the area or go on a wine- and cheese-tasting adventure. Gear Heads Some dads get revved up about automotive gifts, especially if they spend the weekends pampering their prized cars or trucks. If he tends to have a wrench in hand and head under the hood, treat your father to some new supplies for his automotive pursuits. Quality car waxes and upholstery cleaners are always in demand. Or give him a gift certificate to his favorite hand-wash, auto-detailing center. Gas station gift cards or a new ratchet set are other good auto gift ideas. Techies Some dads get excited about the latest tablets or smartphones. They may keep abreast of virusdetection software or think the technological gadgets sold in those speciality magazines and From Brian, Carrie, Nick & Staff mall stores are must-haves. Chances are if you spend enough time with Dad you know just A Reputation you can Ride on! what he likes to dabble in, and you can get him an electronic device he’ll find invaluable.

Father’s Day 2012

Golf club-fitting technology is a welcomed quick fix (NC)—Every spring, golfers salivate over the added yardage and straighter shots promised by the latest equipment and teaching aids. But, just like an off-the-rack suit or dress at your local department store, when it comes to golf clubs, one size does not fit all. As Michael Breed on the Golf Channel has pointed out, playing golf with a set of clubs not tailored to your individual swing is like running a marathon in the wrong size shoes. It might feel fine for a little while, but you’ll soon develop blisters and your technique will consequently be affected as you attempt to compensate.

A player’s height, physique, swing speed or swing plane are among a myriad of factors that need to be considered when determining the right set of clubs for that unique swing. And the results can be dramatic.

Whereas many facilities—on the course, and off—have an affiliation with certain manufacturers, Cuerrier says Golf Town’s new “fitting technology powered by Swing Labs” provides a non-partisan custom club-fitting approach.

“With many customers, we’re seeing improvements of more than 20 yards off the tee and much tighter dispersion rates as far as accuracy goes,” says Andre Cuerrier, a teaching professional veteran with PGA of Canada, as well as the director of academies and services at leading retailer, Golf Town. “People are really shocked at how much of a difference properly fitted equipment can instantly make.”

“One of the great things about this technology is that there is no brand bias,” 8 he explains, adding that the company has just completed installation of the fitting system into as many as 54 stores across Canada. “After analyzing your swing, the software suggests a clubhead’s brand, model and loft, as well as shaft model and flex, to optimize each player’s performance. Of the more than 820,000 possible combinations, the computer might suggest the least expensive line that we sell.”

are instantaneous. Before a client makes a significant club purchase, we instruct our staff to recommend the club-fitting process by one of Golf Town’s certified professionals. Our store-based Class-A, PGA of Canada professionals tell us that the added bonus of a

proper fit is the acceleration of the learning curve for those wanting lessons afterwards.” “What you’re taught becomes more implementable,” Cuerrier explains. “It’s hard to apply new skills when you’re fighting clubs that don’t fit you.”

Summerland Review Thursday, June 14, 2012






S 15

Golf club hosts amateur championship Chris Moore of Vancouver was leading by two strokes after Monday’s opening round of the 27th British Columbia Golf Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship at the Summerland Golf and Country Club. Moore, a member at McCleery Golf and Country Club in Vancouver, fired a threeunder par 69 that included five birdies on his outward half

and only two bogeys overall, coming at the 8th and 11th. Moore was able to navigate the pristine fairways and small, tricky greens at the Summerland club on the way to his excellent score. Helping his cause was a threehole stretch that saw birdies on five, six and seven. Following close on the heels of Moore were Norm Bradley

of Kelowna, Travis Eggers of Fort St. John, Victoria’s Terry Ishizaki and Vancouver’s Cameron Laker. All four players shot identical oneunder par 71s on a day that featured calm weather in the morning followed by gusting winds and warmer temperatures in the afternoon. Still within grasp for the lead were 2011 BC Amateur runner-

up Kevin Carrigan of Victoria and local player Cory Hilditch of Penticton who sat in a tie for sixth after respectable evenpar 72s. Bradley, a member at Kelowna Golf and Country Club, led the Master-40 division of the championship by two strokes over Greg Koster of Courtenay who pieced together a one-over par 73. Three strokes back of

Bradley was Greg Bismeyer of Pitt Meadows, thanks to a twoover par 74. Bradley had previous success in this championship, finishing runner-up in the Master-40 division in 2011. The Men’s MidAmateur Championship is a 54-hole stroke play competition that

features an overall competition, a MidAmateur division for players aged 25-39 and a Master-40 division for players aged 40 years and older. All players compete for the overall championship and are 25 years or older as of June 11, 2012. Also being played

concurrently with the individual Championship was the White/Haddrell Club Team Championship which features twoman club teams from clubs with two or more playing representatives. The teams for this championship are decided following round two.

Summerland golfers place in BC PGA tournament series A golf pro and a top amateur partner from Summerland Golf and Country Club placed in the Professional Golfers’ Association of British Columbia’s recent tournament at the Harvest Golf Club in Kelowna. Golf pro Tyrel Babkirk, with partner Len Filek, came in at T-8th with -2 and won $184. Winner of the tournament was Mark Anderson, head professional at the Mission Golf and Country Club, partnered with club champion Stu Dunaway, shooting a 7 under par 65. Anderson earned the top professional prize of $1,200

while Dunaway won a set of TaylorMade R11 irons. Second were Royal Colwood’s team of head professional Jason Giesbrecht and Chris Westlake. Finishing two off the lead in third place (67) were Rob Anderson and Jason Monteleone of Kelowna Golf and Country Club. The TaylorMade & Adidas Golf PGA of B.C. Tournament of Champions pairs the best amateur player at golf clubs across the province with that golf club’s head professional. The scoring format of Best Ball takes only

the best score of the two players per hole, giving the potential of scoring well provided both teammates do not struggle on the same hole. The prize structure offers professionals a chance to win a share of the $6,850 purse, and the amateurs an opportunity to win their share of more than $7,000 of golf products. In another PGA tournament, Greg Machtaler of Summerland placed T-16th with 71, 74, +1 in the FlightScope / Cobra PUMA Golf PGA of BC Assistants’ Championship in June 4 and 5. He

took home a prize of $425. Winner of the championship was Brad Clapp. The Professional Golfers’ Association of British Columbia is an association comprised of more than 650 golf professionals who work at and operate golf courses, driving ranges and other facilities across the province. Its mandate is to promote and advance the game of golf, serving the needs of both its membership and the golf public through professional and junior golf development programs and high-calibre competitive events.

Summerland golfer in championship Len Filek of Summerland is seen in the opening round of the 27th British Columbia Golf Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship. The event took place at the Summerland Golf and Country Club Monday through Wednesday.

Daycamp coming up at Youth Centre this summer Do you know what the Summerland Youth Centre Association is or where the Harold Simpson Memorial Youth Centre is located? Well, the Youth Centre Association has a mandate to operate the Harold Simpson Memorial Youth Centre for the benefit of Summerland residents, but for youth in particular. The Summerland Youth Centre Association is a not-for -profit organization of dedicated volunteers. The executive

board consists of two members of the Lions Club, two members of the Kinsmen Club, one District of Summerland staff and four directors, members at large. Each year a president, vicepresident, treasurer and secretary are elected from the youth centre membership. The building, at 9111 Peach Orchard Rd., was opened in 1994. The original building on Giant’s Head Road became too small for our growing

community and funding for the new building was provided by Kinsmen, Lions, the Vancouver Foundation and the Summerland and District Credit Union. In December 1992 the breakdown of funding for the new Youth Centre building was: $25,000 from the Kinsmen, $25,000 from the Lions, $15,000 from the Youth Centre Society, $150,000 projected sale of the current Youth Centre on Giant’s Head Road and $50,000 from the Summerland and Dis-


Brenda Ingram trict Credit Union. The land west of the arena is municipal land and the municipality agreed to let the building be built there.

The fundraising goal was $335,000 and the building committee was able to meet these goals. The centre makes space available for youth groups such as the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club, Cadets, Scouts and Guides. Adult groups also use the facility for quilting and volleyball and the Lions and Kinsmen call the Youth Centre home. The Centre became the Harold Simpson Memorial Centre named after Harold Simpson who was a

member of the Lions Club. He worked extensively for building and maintaining the existing building. The months of July and August are busy with the Daycamp program sponsored by the Youth Centre Association. I have worked closely with this program and watched many children (six to 12 years old) participate in the week long summer programs. Many children return year after year. Registration forms

for the Daycamp are available at the Parks and Recreation office. Call 250-494-0447 for information. If meeting friends, playing games, going to the beach, swimming at the pool, visiting the museum, and much more sound like fun, sign up for Daycamp. Brenda Ingram is the Programs & Facility Manager for the District of Summerland and proud to be a long-time resident of this great community.

He also has - 17 Grandchildren and 19 Great Grandchildren (#20 on the way). Tom was predeceased by parents Lucy E. Round and Frederick T. Harding, brother Frederick, sisters Lou Howlett (Cliff ) and Edith Fidler (Jack). He has two nephews Ron and Greg Howlett. Tom was born in Victoria and was a YMCA member in the early 30’s. Prior to enlisting in the Royal Canadian Air force, he joined the militia at 16 years of age. He served in the (RCAF) as an air craft mechanic for 29 years and was stationed in Coal Harbour and Haida Gwaii servicing airplanes during the war. Tom and Eileen were married in Comox where he was stationed on the air base. They were then transferred to Cold Lake Alberta (CFB). The growing family then transferred to Uplands airbase in Ottawa before moving back to CFB Cold Lake to retire from the air force. The family moved to Nanaimo in 1971 where he worked as a commissionaire and managed Brian Ball’s stationary. In 1977 Eileen and Tom moved to Peachland to create a beautiful oasis while Tom commuted to Kelowna to manage another stationary store. They moved to Summerland in 1991 to build a new home and another Garden of Eden until poor health required a move back to the island to Mill Bay where family could care for him. The family was blessed to have him here on Vancouver Island for his final years. He was such a sweetheart and cherished by all who knew him. His beautiful smile and spirit made all feel better, just by being in his presence. He was noted for a fondness of ice cream. A Celebration of Poppy’s Life was held on Tuesday, June 12th at 11:00 am – at St. John’s Anglican Church at 3295 Cobble Hill Road in Cobble Hill. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Red Cross, as they helped to make Poppy’s life more comfortable in his last days at home. The family is ever grateful for the compassion and care from Dr. Wilson(s) and the staff at Cowichan Valley hospital in his final days. Rest in Peace Poppy, you will be in our hearts always.

Charles Frederick Miller went to be with the Lord on April 11, 2012 at the age of 83 years.

lost revenue and control measures. Water-based recreational activities such as angling, boating and diving can spread aquatic invasive species to new locations. Plants, animals, and microscopic creatures can cling to clothing, equipment and boats. If not cleaned, these species can be introduced into new bodies of water. Locally, there has been little attention on invasive aquatic species, with the exception of Eurasian water milfoil. Invasive plants like milfoil, and also algae, can form thick mats on the surface of the water, which can impede light penetration to underwater plants and animals, hinder boat traffic, clog intake pipes of boats, foul fishing lines and nets and cause a danger to swimmers. Once established, these species are extremely difficult, if not impossible, to eradicate. Econom-

ically, the impacts of aquatic invasive plants can be devastating. Many of these species can cause increased boat repair and maintenance costs when they become tangled in motors. Real estate values can become depressed on water bodies with aquatic plant infestations like milfoil. Water intake structures on dams can be damaged from mats of invasive plant materials. Management strategies to address infestations are extremely costly. U n f o r t u n a t e l y, the concerns do not end with plants. In fact, aquatic invasive animals pose a far greater threat to our waterways. Of immediate concern are two freshwater mussel species, zebra and quagga mussels. These invertebrates rapidly colonize hard surfaces and can subsequently clog water-intake structures, impact recreation, alter food webs and affect water

quality. Invasive mussels can affect entire ecosystems. Recent research has determined there is a high risk of invasive mussels not only surviving in some parts of Okanagan Lake, but there is a high potential for massive infestations. When it comes to aquatic invasive species, the ecological balance of our lakes and rivers is at risk, and so is our drinking water. Prevention of harmful new invasions is the first priority, as it is the most cost-effective way to deal with the problem. Once species are established, the task becomes far more complex and costly. The issue of invasive aquatics is a hot topic and it’s the focus of a province-wide campaign in 2012. So watch for it, and in the meantime, take the time to become more familiar with aquatic invaders during Invasive Species Week and learn what you can do to make a difference.

What do the snakehead fish, rock snot and milfoil have in common? They are all invasive aquatic species known to occur in British Columbia. They are threatening B.C.’s aquatic and riparian ecosystems, such as streams, lakes and wetlands, and the native wildlife that rely on these environments. Fortunately, we don’t have the snakehead fish or rock snot – an invasive freshwater algae – in the Okanagan or Similkameen Valleys. But we do have many other non-native, aggressive aquatic species that have invaded our natural habitats and there’s potential for an onslaught of dozens more, if we fail to take action. June 11 to 17 is B.C.’s inaugural Invasive Species Week. This annual event will provide an opportunity for people all around the province to participate in local events and learn more about how to prevent the spread of invasive species. This year’s theme centres around invasive species in aquatic environments. “It’s hard to ignore invasive aquatic plants when you live in the Okanagan Valley — it would be a rare person in our region who has never heard of Eurasian milfoil. However, the list of aquatic invaders is far more extensive than you could possibly imagine,” said biologist Lisa Scott, who is also the coordinator of the South OkanaganSimilkameen Invasive Plant Society. Like their terrestrial counterparts, aquatic invasive species have been entering Canadian waters for centuries but never as rapidly as today. Fisheries and Oceans Canada states that aquatic invasive species have already been responsible for significant devastation of some native fish species and fisheries in Canada. Annually, the problem is responsible for billions of dollars in
