Water usage bills tested Summerlanders will soon see how much water they are using as the municipality sends out consumption information. The statements, to be sent separately from the municipal utility bills, are information statements to show how much water a household is using and how much it would cost under the proposed billing system.

Under the proposed water meter rates, Summerlanders would pay $30 after the 10 per cent discount for up to 20 cubic metres or 20,000 litres of water. Additional water is charged at three rates, with the amount allotted under each rate based on the size of the property. For those who go over the base allotment,

the charge is 35¢ a cubic metre, then 55¢ a cubic metre and finally 90¢ a cubic metre for the most excessive water use. Mayor Janice Perrino said municipal council had considered several billing options before settling on the system which will be used. In the past, water has not been metered in Summerland. Instead, residential users

pay $35.82 for an unlimited amount. Perrino said the metered system with escalating rates for excessive consumption will encourage water conservation. The system also penalizes those who waste water. “We want to give a break to those who conserve and we want to stop water abusers,” Per-

rino said. She said the high rates for high consumption will serve as a deterrent to many who might otherwise water excessively or inefficiently. “When it comes to people’s pocketbooks, they decide what they want to spend their money on,” she said. See DRY Page 6

Reservoirs continue to spill Summerland’s reservoirs remain full to overflowing, although the spill is expected to stop within the next two weeks. Water operations manager Scott Lee said all reservoirs except Garnett Lake are full at present. Municipal crews have kept the level of Garnett Lake down in order to prevent high water problems with Eneas Creek. As a result of manage-

ment efforts on the lake, there are no flooding problems reported in the area. At other municipal reservoirs, the water is continuing to overflow. Once the reservoirs stop spilling, the community will be using stored water for the rest of the season. Water storage dates tend to fluctuate widely. In some years, the reser-

voirs continued to spill throughout the year while at other times, Summerland went into water storage as early as June 20. From 2000 to 2009, the water storage date was from June 23 to July 6. In 2010, the water storage date was July 9 and in 2011, it was July 31. Although water is continuing to overflow the reservoirs, the community remains in Stage 1

watering restrictions. The restrictions allow for lawn irrigation three days a week. If the reservoirs show a significant drop in water levels, the municipality can impose more stringent watering restrictions. Lee said the yearround restrictions help to reinforce the importance of water conservation. “We live in a desert and water isn’t an unlimited

resource,” he said. “We don’t have water to waste at all here.” Since the drought of 2003, Summerland has had restrictions in place for the community, with Stage 1 restriction in place all the time. Lee said the restrictions are helping to curb water use. “Our consumption in Summerland has been declining for many years,” he said.

propane gas and for carbon monoxide which is created when fuel burns. RV owners will be advised and given time to make changes.

Resolutions

Council adopted a new vehicle policy for the municipality. The policy outlines the use of municipal vehicles. Concerns were raised about the number of vehicles taken home by staff at night. Under the new policy, most on staff may not take municipal vehicles to their homes, but certain staff members were given exemptions in order to allow them to respond quickly to emergencies and after hours service calls. In addition, the municipality will number all its vehicles for identification purposes. The new policy clarifies who can take a vehicle home and what the vehicle can be used for. The vehicles currently are numbered, but numbering will be made more visible and consistent for the benefit of the public.

Karate support given Summerland karate athlete Claire Boothe will receive grant in aid of $500 to assist in her travel costs to attend the Junior Pan-American Championships in Cancun, Mexico. The championship will be held Aug. 26 to Sept. 1. Boothe is a Team Canada member of Karate B.C.

Housekeeping amendment approved Council will note an additional housekeeping amendment regarding docks when a bylaw amendment is considered for first reading. The amendment will bring municipal regulations in line with provincial ones.

House construction approved Council approved a development permit for 14409 Latimer Ave. The permit authorizes construction of a single detached house on the property. A similar, earlier permit had expired and new property owners want to undertake construction.

RV campground policy adopted Council adopted a recreational vehicles in campground policy. The policy clarifies what is allowed for recreational vehicles in Summerland campgrounds. The clarification came after a recent fire at one campground may have been affected by unauthorized construction attached to a recreational vehicle. Many recreation vehicles have propane appliances, and the addition of skirting and decks can impair venting required for

EDITORIAL

our pick

Water use challenge Summerland’s proposed water usage rate structure is a good start on encouraging water conservation, but it falls short of making us change our water-happy habits. There is no incentive to lower usage below 20 cubic metres, even though perhaps 10 cubic metres might be in reach for small, water-efficient households. That’s because the base rate stays at $30 for the first 20 cubic metres. This structure keeps us careful, but doesn’t push us to be ultraconservative. After the 20 cubic metre mark, usage rates rise to 35 cents, 55 cents and 90 cents a cubic metre. These higher rates should prove to be incentive for the big users to use water more efficiently. Monitoring irrigation output and moisture levels, fixing leaks and using water-conserving appliances and equipment will make economic sense. In the past, water was billed at a flat rate. This week, residents are receiving mock bills to show what their water consumption and rate would be under the proposed system. The idea is to penalize excessive water use by way of the pocketbook. The information-only bills will give residents a chance to start reducing water usage before it costs them. Residents should take a good look at the statements, which are being sent separately from regular utility bills, and get back to the municipality with any feedback, concerns or questions. The water situation in Summerland is pretty good this year, with full reserviors, an improved water infrastructure and a population respectful of watering restrictions. The proposed water billing system is about the future: continuing to have good water to drink and enough water to keep some of our naturally arid landscape green. Some of us could take the new usage information as a challenge to go well below the 20 cubic metre mark.

Nuggets from Barlee’s gold pan VICTORIA – Shortly after word came of the death of B.C. historian and politician Bill Barlee, my wife searched through her seemingly endless trove of B.C. books and produced half a dozen of his original self-published quarterlies, known as Canada West magazine. The earliest one is Winter 1970, where the publisher’s note advises that subscription rates were increasing 20 cents per year Tom Fletcher to $2.95. Subscriptions were up to more than 1,600 and counter sales were increasing, but costs were also up and Barlee refused to accept either display advertising or U.S. subscriptions. The only colour pages in the issue are highquality prints of four majestic paintings commissioned for the magazine. Irvine Adams’ scenes of sacred aboriginal sites in the Okanagan-Similkameen include The Gateway to Inkameep, where Barlee remarks: “Today that stream which once teemed with redfish no longer surrenders its once-valued harvest and the perimeter of the desert is gradually being eroded by man’s questionable progress.” With the typography of Old West wanted posters, Barlee provided tightly sourced accounts of B.C.’s legends. “Lost gold mine at Pitt Lake” analyzes and adds to earlier accounts that begin with an aboriginal miner known as Slu-

mach, who would periodically arrive in New Westminster to squander a small fortune in gold, then disappear up the remote tidal lake. Slumach was hanged for murder in 1891 and in the next 70 years, 11 more men would die trying to find his secret. Barlee concluded that the area’s geology is wrong and the fabled gold-laden creek “probably does not exist.” A passion for prospecting runs through the magazines, and hints at Barlee’s aversion

iour for the region when he ran for federal office in 2000,” Nesteroff writes. “But by then he was ridiculed for it, and finished a distant second.” Barlee’s 1972 Canada West profile of the boomtown of Hedley would resonate in his career as an NDP MLA and cabinet minister in the 1990s. Hedley’s Nickel Plate and Mascot mines produced fortunes in gold, silver and copper before they played out, and Barlee led the fight to preserve their

They overran B.C. in historic waves to take gold, and according to Nelson Star reporter Greg Nesteroff, Barlee believed they continued to loot Canadian heritage sites. Nesteroff was inspired by Barlee’s work, and traced his lonely mission to restore the ghost town of Sandon, “the mining capital of the Silvery Slocan.” Barlee bought a surviving block of buildings in an effort to make Sandon another Barkerville, but heavy snow collapsed them. As tourism minister, Barlee found money to build replicas, and construction began on three. But Barlee lost his Penticton seat to Bill Barisoff in the 1996 election, and today only half-built shells remain. “He was still selling Sandon’s restoration as an economic sav-

history. Today you can tour the Mascot mine, a proud historical site with a spectacular climb up the rock face that serves as the Grouse Grind of the B.C. desert. I first discovered Barlee as a reporter at the Kelowna Capital News, in the early 1980s, when he did a weekly history show on CHBC television called Gold Trails and Ghost Towns. A barebones studio affair with tales and artifacts displayed for host Mike Roberts, the show lasted a decade. On subscription fees and a few classified ads, he built a life’s work that allowed him to walk the boardwalks of history and the halls of power.

culls Increased bike traffic on Summerland and Okanagan roads is a good thing in many ways. There’s the whole good for the environment thing of using pedal power instead of fossil fuels. And the fitness angle, with well-exercised people staying healthy and out of the costly healthcare system. And there’s the tourism economic benefit, with bicyclists patronizing our restaurants, hotels and shops. What’s not so good is the increasing bike vs. motor vehicle conflict on the roads. We need to start planning bike lanes and bike routes on our highways and byways.

Need sani-dump more than chargers Dear Editor: I find our mayor’s enthusiasm over installing several electric outlets for recharging electric automobiles that may someday appear in

Summerland odd, to say the least. Only a couple of weeks ago, she was dead set against installing a sanistation for the many RVs that residents

already own, as well as the many RVs that visit our fair city and spend their tourist dollars here. Oh yes, I get it; there’s a grant available for the electric

outlets. It will come from a higher government agency, or in other words, from one of our other pockets. I don’t recall seeing or hearing anything about who will pay

the cost of the electricity for these “fillups.” Will we, the taxpayer, be on the hook for that? Will an attendant be required, and if so,

who pays for that? I realize that going green is the buzzword of the day, “motherhood” and all that, to which I also subscribe, but really, Madam Mayor

and Councillors, we need a sani-station far more that the proposed electrical recharge stations. Terry and Sharron Bradley Summerland

THE EARLY YEARS

Farm Beach, now Sunoka, wasn’t very busy in the 1940s. Guarded by The Sentinels, the pumping station, just visible on the lower right, was part of the Experimental Farm and the general public wasn’t allowed to swim there. Now the beach is one of the most popular in the valley and if we finally have summer in the Okanagan, it’s going to be extremely busy. If you’re planning to be part of the beach bunch, don’t forget your sunscreen.

Dear Editor: Firstly I would like to sincerely thank the Corporation of Summerland for providing a dog beach by Peach Orchard Beach. Why, though, is only the northern end of the enclosed space fenced with chain link fencing leading into the lake? The south end is wide open and an open invitation for dogs to run away. It is painfully obvious that whoever planned the enclosure has never repeatedly called and chased their dog as it runs away. He never had an anxious moment as their dog races on to a busy road like Lakeshore Drive to greet a newly arriving dog. For a small amount of labour and eight to 10 feet of chain link fencing, the safety of our dogs and dog owners could be significantly improved. Elden Ulrich Summerland

Grateful for lift to hospital Looking for witness Dear Editor: I just wanted to comment that my husband and I experienced the kindness of one of Summerland’s residents on this past holiday Monday. We were riding our road bikes from Peachland to Summerland, turning off the highway just by the Summerland sign. My husband went over the cattle grid

and went over the handlebars of his bike and suffered quite serious injuries which we subsequently found out was amnesia due to concussion and multiple abrasions. One car went past us and made no effort to stop and ask if he was okay even though he was bleeding profusely, but the next car stopped. Unfortunately

I never did get the gentleman’s full name but his first name was Russ. He immediately put my husband, myself and our two road bikes in his car and drove us to Penticton Hospital where my husband was put on a back board and went through many tests, etc. This gentleman would not even accept money for his

gas and I just wanted to let the people of Summerland know that they have a very kind and wonderful person living in their midst. I hope you can put this little letter into your newspaper as I would dearly like this person to know how very grateful we are for his act of kindness. Lesley Westwood Kelowna

after bike accident Dear Editor: On Sunday, June 17, (Father’s Day) I suffered an accident while riding my bicycle along Kirk Road, Trout Creek. As I was lying helpless in the middle of the road, a lady very kindly pulled her car over to the side of the road.

She asked if I needed assistance. I declined as my husband was fetching his truck to take me to Penticton General Hospital. As I was shaken up and in a lot of pain, I neglected to ask for this lovely lady’s name so that I could offer my thanks and

allow her name to be used as a witness in the accident. Now that I am a little more mobile I would like to express my appreciation. I would ask this Good Samaritan to give me a call at 250494-7288. Fenella Sobchuk Summerland

Dry run for new water bills Continued from page 1

Summerland’s watering restrictions will remain in place even after metering is in use. At present, Summerland has several stages of watering restrictions for residential users. At present, users are allowed to water their lawns three times a week, but depending on the reservoir levels, lawn watering may be reduced to twice a week or once a week or prohibited entirely. “We can still restrict as the need arises,” Perrino said. In 2003, the worst

drought in decades, Summerland came close to running out of water in its reservoirs. Since that time, Thirsk Dam has been raised, doubling the size of Thirsk Lake and increasing by around 25 per cent the total water capacity for the community. Because Summerland is in a dry area, water conservation will continue to be an issue, Perrino said. “We need to be sensible,” she said. “It’s such a privilege to have good, healthy water to drink. We need to use it wisely.”

Dry days will boost fire hazard rating The risk of a wildfire in the Okanagan Valley has been extremely low following above normal rainfall in June, but the recent hot weather could change things quickly. Kevin Skrepnek, fire information officer with the Kamloops Fire Centre, said the risk of a wildfire was low last week, but the risk level changes daily.

“We are expecting hot and dry weather coming up,” he said. With the temperatures as forecast, he said the risk could easily go to moderate or high within days. Because of the soggy spring, campfires are still allowed, but they must measure no larger than half a metre square. Fires larger than that size are considered open burning,

which is prohibited at present. “If you’re looking for a cooking fire, the cooler the better,” he said. Despite the wet June weather, Skrepnek said wildfires are still possible this summer. In 2003, the worst fire season in decades, the spring weather was wet, but a hot and dry July and August resulted

in fires throughout the province, including fires close to Kelowna, Penticton and other Okanagan centres. Although the dry debris west of Summerland did not burn that year, Skrepnek said provincial forest fire crews have been out removing material in the Bald Range area west of Summerland in March and April. He said the pre-

ventative measures are needed to reduce the risk of wildfires. In recent years, 2009 had more fires, consuming more hectares of land, than in 2003, but the damage to buildings was lower. Skrepnek said this spring has been wet, but the winter was drier than normal. Those who see a wildfire are urged to call #5555 to report it.

BC Company Law

BC has revised its legislation for companies. The BC Business Corporations Act has now been in effect for some time. The new Act is a complete revision of company legislation. Many changes from the old BC Company Act have been made, too many to list in a column of this nature. For a complete review of the changes and how those changes will affect your company please call Patrick Bell of Bell, Jacoe & Company. With over 30 years of handling company incorporations, reorganizations and general corporate matters, he is Summerland's most experienced Lawyer on these matters.

Thursday, July 12, 2012 Summerland Review

What’s that green building on the highway? Approaching Summerland on Highway 97 from the north, less than a kilometre from the Rosedale intersection, you will pass an oddly shaped two-storey building at Thompson Road. What’s in that building? The most obvious answer is The Summerland Visitor Centre, which occupies the main floor of the building and provided information for 9,400 visitors to our community in 2011. The rest of the

building is home to the Summerland Chamber of Economic Development and Tourism (SCEDT), also referred to as the Summerland Chamber of Commerce, our local business membership organization serving approximately 800 members. When asked what a Chamber of Commerce is some people may think it’s a bank; others, a branch of government. Neither of those is correct, but it begs the question, “What

is a Chamber of Commerce?” Long answer: A Chamber of Commerce is an organization established to promote civic, commercial, industrial and agricultural progress in the community it serves, and to work for sound legislation and efficient administration of the community and at all levels of government. More simply put, the Chamber exists to make our community a better place in which to live. It provides an avenue for the business people in Summerland to create a positive business environment. It also provides our local business sector with a vehicle to promote Summerland to

the outside world either for tourism or business investment purposes - and helps people find their way when they arrive here. The Chamber provides the opportunity for those people who create local jobs and drive our local economy, to work with government and the public to build an even better community. It is the recognized voice of business. The Summerland Chamber of Commerce actively partners with the District of Summerland to support businesses. Summerland is home to an initiative that is unique in the Province of British Columbia in that every business that

Recent headlines have highlighted the push to ban the use of tanning beds for those under 18 years old, but tanning beds pose a risk for everyone. While they reduce the amount of burning UVB rays, they have more of the cancer-causing UVA rays than ordinary sunlight! A new study out of Harvard is showing that women aged 25-36 who use tanning beds 7 times per year have a 73% increased risk of developing skin cancer. A lot of people think that slowly building up a “base tan” will provide sun protection and reduce the need for sunscreen. However, according to the Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation, “tanned skin is damaged skin” and any damaged skin can lead to skin cancer. A base tan can, at best, provide the equivalent of SPF 2-3 – significantly lower than the recommended SPF 30. At that minimal benefit, it’s just not worth the risk. Have you ever thought of getting a tattoo? How about a medical tattoo? There is a growing trend to permanently ink medical information onto our bodies, such as serious allergies or DNR directives. The problem is that emergency workers aren’t trained to look for them… plus, questions exist as to the legal ramifications of following or ignoring such “inked” orders. Stick with medical ID jewelry for now. Vaccinations are typically associated with infants and children, but many of these vaccinations lose potency by adulthood and boosters are needed to maintain effectiveness! Diphtheria & tetanus require boosters every 10 years and pertussis requires 1 adult booster. 3 BC people died of tetanus in 2007! Two others to consider (in addition to flu shots) are pneumococcal and shingles vaccines. Adult Vaccines: A Grown Up Thing To Do! Many BC pharmacists are now trained and experienced in providing vaccinations! Talk to us to review what your needs may be.

Thursday, July 12, 2012 Summerland Review

Berrisford brings home four medals Haley Berrisford, an 11 year-old from the Summerland ORCA Swim Team, won a medal in four out of five freestyle events at her second AAA Provincial Championships. She was competing among 600 of B.C.’s top swimmers in a four-day extravaganza from July 5 to 8 at the WaterMania pool in Richmond. Berrisford earned medals: two silver in the 800m and 400m freestyle and two bronze in the 200m and 100m freestyle events. “What was impressive is Haley’s ability to strategically race.

She’s only 11, and we discuss race splitting and she is able to execute her race plan with a natural feel of the water and shes knows what speed and pace she is going, whether it’s a sprint or a distance event,” said Orca Coach Joanne Malar. At Day One of competition, Haley had a difficult double, two races within 20 minutes of each other. The first event was her favourite race, the 800m freestyle (32 lengths or 16 Olympic Size/50 metre lengths) followed by another provincial final of the 200m freestyle.

At the Olympic level, these are doubles that swimming sensations Ryan Lochte, Michael Phelps and Missy Franklin are able to pull off at their level. Haley was entered second in the 800 freestyle, and raced to a best time by dropping 19 seconds to win silver in a time of 10:45.90. She got back on the blocks 20 minutes later and won a bronze in the 200 freestyle in a

time of 2:29.36. On Day Two, Haley qualified for the final (top eight) of the 50m freestyle, finishing seventh in this ultra sprint event, the extreme opposite of her 800 freestyle event. On Day 3, she swam the 200m Individual Medley (IM) and the 100 freestyle. She finished eleventh in the IM and followed it up finaling in the 100 freestyle sprint in 1:10.77.

In a tremendous effort, she dug deep to have a great finish and new PB in a time of 1:08.35, snagging her third medal, bronze, in this event. On Day 4 Haley strategized to deliver a perfectly split preliminary swim to drop nine seconds off her best time to qualify second for finals in a time of 5:11.45. In finals, she raced the provincial leader to attain her fourth medal, silver, drop-

ping an additional four seconds in a time of 5:07.70. “With this being only Haley’s second time competing at this highest level of provincial championships, and medaling four times, this just confirms what we already know,” said Malar.

“Haley is on her way to being one of Swim B.C.’s and eventually Swim Canada’s premier age group swimmers if she continues her dedicated work ethic and determination to improve, which we know she will.”

Podium finishes for triathletes Among the 194 entrants in the recent Kamloops KOS triathlon race were 16 members of Summerland’s TriPower Triathlon Club. Podium finishers were Ryan Peters, third, age 5; Tayla Ingram, first, 8-9 girls category; Connor Berrisford and Quinten Pearson, tied for first, 8-9 boys category; Holden Berrisford, 8-9 boys category; Tamatae Westby, first, 10-11 boys; Keegan Ingram, second, 10-11 boys; Haley Berrisford, first, 12-13 girls. Here’s how all the team members did: Ryan Peters, third, age 5, first time racer; Sean Peters, sixth,

age 6, first time racer; Fiona Girard, 11th, age 6; Tayla Ingram, first, age 8-9 category; Connor Berrisford and Quinten Pearson tied for first, 8-9 age category; Holden Berrisford, second, 8-9 age category; Holden Girard, 15th, 8-9 age category; Tamatae Westby, first, 10-11 age category; Keegan Ingram, second, 10-11 age category; Owen Lemoine, fourth, 10-11 age category; Evan Peters, sixth, 10-11 age category; Kassandra Hintz, fifth, 10-11 age category; Haley Berrisford, first, 12-13 age category; Andrew Carlow, fifth, 12-13 age category; and Ian Peters, sixth, 12-13 age category.

Personal Olympics memories It is that time again where I get excited about the up and coming Summer Olympics which will be held this year in London from July 27 to August 12th. Listening to Joanne Malar tell her Olympic stories and looking forward to her new challenge as CTV’s color commentary for swimming brought back vivid memories of the only Summer Olympic

Games Canada ever hosted. They were the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal and I had a very personal connection that still makes me emotional even today. My younger brother had been a member of Canada’s National swimming team for three years but it was the last day of the 1976 Olympic trials and he had not made the Olympic team. I remember

watching his final event, the 100 metre freestyle with more nervousness that I had ever felt before. When he finished third I remember a sense of relief and jubilation that he was going to the Olympics. Coming from a small community that at that time was about the size of Summerland, the city of Mission had the same buzz Summerland had when Kristy Richards and Justin Kripps competed in the 2012 Winter Games. The lead up to the Games was amazing. My brother Gary had the opportunity to meet Prime Minster Pierre Trudeau but was more impressed with his attractive young wife Margaret. When the Olympic Games finally arrived the country was ripe with anticipation but our athletes were not doing very well.

LEISURE TIMES

Dale MacDonald Gary was a member of Canada’s 4x100 medley relay team but his spot on the team was not assured until he posted Canada’s fastest ever 100 metre time in the heats. Canada was ranked fourth going into the Olympics so there was hope for a medal. I was a University student at the time coaching Mission’s summer swim club. So there I was with the members of my swim team watching on national TV my brother’s dream

become a reality. Even though they were rated fourth, Graham Smith, Steve Pickell, Clay Evans and my brother Gary MacDonald set an Olympic record in finishing behind the Americans to win a silver medal. It is a day I will never forget and as I follow both Kristy and Justin as they continue their dreams and watch Joanne at this year’s Olympic Games, it will always be very special. (To make the world even smaller, Brent Hayden, Canada’s current 100 metre freestyle record holder is also from my hometown of Mission). Dale MacDonald has been Summerland’s Director of Parks and Recreation for the last 22 years and in his sporting past has won provincial championships in four different sports.
