The Summerland Asset Development Initiative has added a skate park ramp at the Unity Youth Centre. The new half pipe, which was completed last week, will be officially opened today. R.J. Dueck, a professional skate park designer and builder, designed the facility. He has directed the construction on more than 50 of the largest and most recognized skate parks in North America, including the Penticton Skate Park. Other professionals in the field, as well as volunteers and students came out to support the construction. Shawn Hoffarth of Skatelife Canada, a division of Young Life Canada, helped to build the half pipe with the students. Laceydawn Loeppky, youth activities coordinator at the youth centre, said the cost of the facility was $900. In addition, Summerland Builders’ Mart donated around $700 worth of materials for the half pipe. While Summerland has had a skateboard park in place since the 1990s, Loeppky said the new facility is needed. “It’s another place kids can hang out in a safe environment,” she said. She added that SADI organizers hope to attract more students with the opening of the skate park ramp. The ramp will be available while the youth centre is open Monday to Thursday from noon to 5 p.m. Students must bring their own helmets, but in the near future, Loeppky said the youth organization hopes to be able to supply helmets to students who do not bring their own. The grand opening of the half pipe is at the Skateboard action Brad Riemer, a youth worker at the Summerland Asset Development Initiative’s Unity Youth Centre, Unity Youth Centre on Giant’s Head Road on tests out the new skateboarding ramp. The ramp adds to the activities available at the youth centre. Thursday, July 26 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Police station took years to complete by John Arendt While the construction of the new Summerland RCMP station was done over the past year, getting a new building for the detachment was a long process. The official opening of the facility takes place tomorrow. Mayor Janice Perrino said discussions about a new facility had been in

the works over 12 years and five municipal councils. “It is a day that has taken a long time to come,” Perrino said. “The police have been very patient, very understanding.” The new building replaces the station on Jubilee Road East, which had been the home of the RCMP since 1975. When the building was con-

structed in 1969, it was originally a restaurant. The RCMP detachment which moved into the

prisoners are now taken to cells in Penticton. The new facility has around 835 square metres of usable area and around 450 square metres in the basement. The basement may not be used for office space or cells. The new building had a cost of $4.5 million “The detachment is here for the next 50 years,” Perrino said.



POLICE REPORT Cyclist hit On July 19 at 4:45 p.m., a 16-year-old boy riding a bicycle near the north entrance of the Rotary Beach parking lot was struck by a passing motorist. Police say the cyclist was struck from the rear and lost control of the bike as a result. He sustained minor injuries. Police were not able to find the motorist. Police say the vehicle may have had Alberta license plates. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the Summerland RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

Man intoxicated On July 19 at 2:40 a.m., police were called when an intoxicated man was observed outside the Summerland Lakeside Resort. The man was arrested for being intoxicated in public and was taken to cells in Penticton.

Driver suspended On July 18 at 9:10 a.m., police were called with a report about a possible impaired driver on Highway 97. The driver blew a Warn reading and was given a three-day driving suspension as a result.

Boat struck Overnight on July 22, a sailboat anchored 150 metres from shore at Lakeshore Drive and Butler Street was struck by another boat. Police said damage to the sailboat is estimated at $25,000. The owner of the other boat has not been located. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the Summerland RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

ALS ride comes through Summerland Six riders from the Victoria area will be cycling through Summerland in midAugust to help raise awareness and funds for families living with ALS. They will be cycling 650 kilometres from Kamloops starting Aug. 8, through the Okanagan and finishing in Hope Aug. 18. The plan for the ride was inspired by Cindy Lister, who lost her father to the disease. “Cycle of Hope has been my way of healing from the loss of my dad from this devastating disease. My goal is to raise awareness and much needed funds to find a cure for ALS,” said Lister. Paralympic athlete David Cook is experiencing first-hand the effects of ALS. Cook, a silver medalist in sailing at the 1996 Atlanta Paralympic Games, has been diagnosed with a form of ALS, similar to that of physicist

S 3

COUNCIL REPORT The regular meeting of municipal council was held on Monday in council chambers. The mayor and all councillors were present.

Resolutions Sign increased Council approved a variance permit to increase the size of a wall sign at 10104 Main St. The variance increases the size of the wall sign from 2.5 square metres to 2.7 square metres. A request to increase the size of a window sign from 1.5 square metres to 3.2 square metres was also granted.

Rear setback reduced Council approved a development variance permit to reduce the rear yard setback at 15418 Garnett Valley Rd. The variance reduces the setback from 7.0 metres to 5.5 metres.

Special occasion license approved

Hospital expansion A proposed four-storey patient care centre at the Penticton Regional Hospital would host a medical school, surgical suites, outpatient clinics and an oncology centre.

Council approved the request from Ultraman Canada to hold a private special occasion license in Memorial Park on Monday, Aug. 6 from 2 to 6 p.m.

Council gives support to proposed care facility

Land agreements signed

Summerland has joined the push for the construction of the proposed patient care facility at Penticton Regional Hospital. Municipal council is sending a letter to the province in support of PRH patient care project, asking for a commitment by the province to construct the facility in the “very near future.” The plan for PRH expansion calls for a four-storey patient care tower that would host a medical school, surgical suites, outpatient clinics and an oncology centre, plus a new five-storey parkade nearby. So far, the Regional Hospital District of Okanagan-Similkameen has committed


$120 million to the build, while the hospital foundation has pledged $20 million, leaving a $160-million funding gap for the province to fill. At a municipal council meeting, Mayor Janice Perrino reported on a delegation June 26 to Kelowna to meet with Minister of Health Mike De Jong about ambulatory patient care tower. “It was an excellent meeting and minister De Jong asked a lot of good questions and although noncommittal he was very supportive,” said the mayor, who is also the chair of the Regional Hospital District of Okanagan - Similkameen and executive director of the South Okanagan

Similkameen Medical Foundation. “We have a lot of work to do to the get project to the top of the list at the provincial level.” “That hospital is amazing,” said Perrino. “It is so overdue for expansion.” It currently operates at 110 per cent of capacity, she said. The 60-year-old hospital serves 90,000 people in the South Okanagan and Similkameen. The expansion would triple the size.

She noted that all present and past directors of the hospital have signed on in support of the expansion. The project is already the number one priority of Interior Health. “We want this to be the province’s number one project.” She urges all councils and organizations in the hospital’s coverage area to make their support known to the provincial government. “This is not a $300 million project,”

because of the local funding, she said. The expansion would “get the Baby Boomers through to the end of their lives.” The basement of the hospital tower would be devoted to training doctors and medical technicians through the University of B.C. Okanagan medical school. The expansion would allow for greater efficiency, so there would not be additional staffing costs when it opens, she said.

The mayor and corporate officer will sign the license agreements with the Canadian Armed Forces allowing the use of lands at 16700 Prairie Valley Road and the Dale Meadows Field Complex.

Policy amended Municipal staff will amend Summerland’s Climate Action Fund Policy as outlined in the long range planner’s staff report.

Zoning bylaw amended Council gave second, third and final readings to two bylaws making text amendments to the municipal zoning bylaw. The bylaws were for wording changes and for zoning adjustments on Highway 97.

Health Matters Not all health issues are life-and-death! Take foot odour, for example. The combination of sweat, heat and bacteria can lead to a pretty stinky situation! Fortunately, the situation is manageable: bathe your feet daily, treat your footwear to a bath too and give them every other day off, wear breathable socks, spend a few hours per day barefoot and consider using anti-perspirants or deodorants. Clean, dry and cool is the rule! Vertigo – specifically BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) – is the sense that one’s surroundings are moving… when they aren’t. It can lead to nausea, dizziness and dangerous falls. It is an issue with the inner ear where the sense of balance is centred. Tiny crystals become dislodged and lead to erratic signals to the brain. It can usually be treated with a simple canalith repositioning procedure – see your doctor. Scarcely a day goes by in the news these days without reference to the growing epidemic of obesity – and particularly troubling is the rate in children. The first-ever Canadian Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines for the Early Years was recently released and recommends 180 minutes of physical activity per day for one to four year olds. Building these habits early can improve health and longevity down the line! The recent sport-drink phenomenon is leading to health issues. Generally, they are not considered necessary for average daily activity and were designed for elite and extreme athletic pursuits. Calories are often high and dentists are reporting that the acids are leading to dental erosion, tooth sensitivity and cavities – particularly in teens, many of whom are consuming these drinks daily! Water still refreshes best! What’s new and trendy isn’t always the best thing for optimal health. Our pharmacists can help guide you through the mire of information to the gems of true wisdom.

our pick

A place for police Summerland’s new RCMP station, which officially opens tomorrow, is long overdue. Discussions about the facility have taken place for 12 years and with five municipal councils. Twice, Summerland voters were asked to vote on referendum questions about a new detachment. During this time, the members of the RCMP detachment continued to work out of an increasingly inadequate facility on Jubilee Road East. The building had not been constructed as a police station but as a restaurant. In 1975, when the building became the police station, Summerland had a small detachment and the facility provided adequate space. Over the years, Summerland’s population has grown and the detachment has grown with it. Anyone who has been inside the building within the last decade has seen the crowding problems. There have also been some maintenance problems in the building. Since 2005, the cells have been condemned, forcing our officers to transport prisoners to Penticton. The new building is considerably larger and before it was constructed, there were concerns that Summerland would have a much larger facility than was necessary. There were questions about whether a smaller and less expensive building could have gone up instead. While the $4.5 million cost is noticeable, the building will serve for many years to come and it is big enough to allow the police detachment to expand as the community continues to grow. Planning for future needs, not just present needs, makes good sense. In the years to come, other facilities in Summerland will be in need of replacement. Building larger than our present needs may seem extravagant but it makes sense in the long term.

A skate park ramp is now in place at the Summerland Asset Development Initiative’s Unity Youth Centre. The ramp adds to the places where youths can skateboard in Summerland and it provides an additional activity at the youth centre. The cost of this facility was modest, with a price tag of $900. In addition, Summerland Builders’ Mart donated around $700 worth of materials.

Involvement from the keyboard I received a call to action the other day. On my Facebook news feed, there was a link to a site where I could vote for a charitable organization. The organization which received the greatest number of votes would get some badly needed funding. There was no limit to the number of times I could vote, so the message was clear. Vote early and vote often. It was that John Arendt easy. Navigating to an online form and clicking to vote was enough to make a difference. And that was not the only call to action I received. Someone else posted a link to an online petition, urging me to add my name to those voicing their disgust and outrage about the actions of one politician. Again, I could participate without leaving the comfort of my chair. It would take a minute for me to fill out the necessary spaces. Those requests were in addition to the plentiful calls to repost, share or click the Like button for a picture or message. In each case, an almost effortless action was supposed to make a world of difference. A click of the mouse would show my support and make my voice heard. And if enough people shared a status or signed an

online petition, it would result in lasting change. Could it really be this simple? Since I have had Internet access, I have received such messages time and again. Earlier, they came via e-mail but today, social media sites such as Facebook are used to get the message across, more frequently than ever before. Because it is so easy to share a social media status update or click a button on an online

900 million users worldwide. Electronic communications can be effective ways to spread the word about an event, an organization or a cause. But awareness by itself is seldom enough. And publicity campaigns are no substitute for action. There are service clubs and organizations which need people who will get involved. There are advisory boards and committees which make recommendations to muni-

In each case, an almost effortless action was supposed to make a world of difference. A click of the mouse would show my support and make my voice heard. form, I wonder if these actions have any significant effect. Filling out an online form and voting repeatedly for a charitable organization will not guarantee the organization will receive the funds it needs. Giving a donation to the charity and volunteering my time are much more certain ways of showing support. An online petition about a political issue might not find its way to my politician. However, if I call up a member of council, MLA or MP and raise my concerns, at least I will have been heard. Online communication and social media have their place. At present, close to 27 million Canadians are using the Internet. Worldwide, the popularity of social media continues to grow. Facebook alone has more than

cipal council. There are political parties and advocacy groups. There are parent councils at each of Summerland’s schools. There are sports and arts organizations which need volunteers. There are agencies raising money for research and treatment of various diseases. And there are plenty of charitable organizations which need donations in order to keep functioning. In short, there are plenty of tangible ways to get involved. On second thought, maybe there’s a better way, a simpler way. I could search online until I find an image with a strong message, share it on a social media site and wait for all my friends to repost it. Nothing could be easier. John Arendt is the editor of the Summerland Review.

bad apples A motorist who hit a cyclist near Rotary Beach last week should have stopped to check if anything was the matter. Unfortunately, this did not happen. The 16-year-old cyclist sustained minor injuries, but collisions between motor vehicles and cyclists or pedestrians can easily be much more serious. Leaving the scene of the accident is not just a cowardly act; it is also illegal.

Signs are needed for businesses Dear Editor: Signs indicating you are entering Summerland are absolutely necessary for local businesses. They inform the travelers they are passing through Summerland. They also show that there is a

local business community, downtown or otherwise. Further, a guess is that the majority of local businesses rely on tourism and other visitors to stay in business. Some businesses are focused directly on the tourism mar-

ket while others see it as an extra customer source. Both would likely argue outside customers are essential for keeping the doors open. Literally hundreds of visitors come to my business each year. A fair number of

these customers stated they never knew there was so much to Summerland. Signage helped. Many businesses over the past few years have strongly encouraged Summerland council and the Summerland Chamber of

Economic Development and Tourism executive to increase the signage for local businesses. Those signs did not cost millions of dollars nor are they glitzy or offensive in any way. Tell me what town does not have a wel-

come. What people do on their land or building to attract customers is their concern, allowing for municipal bylaws and landlord permission as guidelines for sign design. It is unclear wheth-

er having more “corporate graffiti” will attract more customers, or limiting signs will promote the exodus of businesses from Summerland. Advertising is a cost of business. Bruce Charneski Summerland


Bathing beauties

Swimming and swimwear was a bit different in 1908 than it is today. Never mind bikinis, bathing dresses without sleeves were considered too immodest and the solitary gentleman sitting in the water a distance away from the ladies was probably a lifeguard, the only man allowed anywhere near the swimming party. By the way, 1908 was the first year that Canada was represented in the swimming events at the Olympics, held in London, England as 100 men from 14 countries competed in six events. Our lone swimmer didn’t bring home a medal.

Public works staff have done great job Dear Editor: Hopefully all of the anger and disappointment has been vented about the Canyon View Cemetery cleanup. I understand your grief, but could not understand one request to fire everyone at the Summerland public works department who had anything to do with it. This clean-up was necessary because numerous and very large items placed on gravesites made maintenance

extremely difficult and perhaps families in their grief did not take note of or follow the cemetery guidelines. Take a look around town and see all of the public services, buildings, roads, parks and cemeteries that are so well taken care of by the many municipal employees. Although I am not a municipal employee, as manager of the Summerland Museum, which is housed in a municipal building, I deal with all

of these departments regularly. I am very grateful for the quick service and care they provide. We are very fortunate in Summerland to have such dedicated employees who do a great job keeping Summerland in good shape and looking good. Our little town is beautiful and very well cared for, thanks to all of the municipal employees. Keep up the good work. Sharon Stone Summerland

Dear Editor: After getting past the dismay as to how much water my family uses in a month as recorded in the last received mailing from the corporation, I noticed an interesting piece of information in the newsletter from the District of Summerland. It states that all dogs must be on a leash unless they are at the Dog Beach. A review of the Dog Control Bylaw 96-002 reveals that any dog “not leashed... while on a highway, park or other public place” is considered unlawful-

ly at large and according to section 28.b. the pound keeper may seize such a dog. The owner of such a dog faces a fine of not less than $50 a day to a maximum daily fine of $2,000 and after 72 hours, the dog may be destroyed. With the designated dog beach adjacent to Peach Orchard Park and being a twosided fenced enclosure with one end open allowing dogs to escape their designated area, is the District of Summerland setting up dog owners for a revenue grab when the dogs

become unlawfully at large? Is the district in violation of the wording of their own Dog Control Bylaw which states, “where a property is fully enclosed with a secure fence and self-locking gate which will prevent a dog from escaping, the dog may be untethered and permitted to roam.” I am of the opinion that if my own dog was to leave the partially fenced dog beach by its unfenced south end and be seized and myself as a responsible dog owner was to be fined, I believe I would for-

ward a claim for compensation from either Parks and Recreation or Engineering and Public Works for their absolute slipshod work performance in constructing a fenced enclosure for dogs to run untethered. How much money and work would it really take to add eight to 10 feet of chain link fencing to the south end of the doggie beach? Is this another example of municipal departments lacking common sense and not knowing what is expected from them? Elden Ulrich

vided by the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association, the branch of the Ministry of Tourism that supports our region. They estimate that Summerland receives three per cent of the annual $1.7 billion of tourism income in our region. We can question those numbers or imagine that it’s lower or higher. The point, though, is that tourism is a juggernaut in our local economy and cannot be ignored. Tourism is a key area for the Chamber of Commerce work in our community. In the next few columns I will address the other key areas for the Chamber; member services/ support and business attraction/ retention. Since summer and visitors have arrived, however, tourism is a great place to start. For the past two years TOTA has been working on a regional tourism strategy that will take our region through the next decade. They recognize that our region, and particularly the South Okanagan, is very busy with tourism for the summer months when visitors come for our peaches and beaches. That’s currently the case for Summerland too. TOTA’s goal with the 10-year strategy is to turn that short season into a year round season, by targeting tourists who want what we can provide and by helping our tourism businesses grow to provide what is necessary. TOTA has done extensive research to determine what type of traveller comes to our region to visit and have narrowed this to three types of visitors: free spirits who are adventure seekers, authentic experien-

cers who enjoy parks and nature and cultural explorers who enjoy history and culture. If you visit TOTA’s website at totabc. org and scroll down their main page, you will find the regional strategy section. It’s well worth the read to understand these types of travelers and what they are looking for when they visit Summerland. The Summerland Chamber has a number of members whose businesses depend on these visitors; hotels and bed and breakfasts, cafés and restaurants, the art gallery and museum, fruit stands, the Kettle Valley Steam Railway, shops and boutiques, etc. all come to mind. And while it’s TOTA’s role to attract people to the Thompson Okanagan, it’s our role in Summerland to distinguish


Arlene Fenrich and position our community in a way that makes us attractive to visitors year round. That will directly benefit our tourism businesses and in turn, our whole community. The Summerland Chamber is fully in support of TOTA’s 10-year strategy and is working with the District of Summerland and our tourism businesses to identify our strengths and clarify our vision. We want to present a unified picture to vis-

itors that will attract them to our town and expand our tourism season. One of the important things about visitors is that they often turn into residents. A common story among newcomers to Summerland is that they visited for a few days and decided to make a permanent move here. Hopefully some have moved their businesses here as well or decided to open new businesses. We always appreciate your feedback. Please contact me at or Christine Petkau at Arlene Fenrich is President of the Summerland Chamber of Commerce and the owner of Edgy Petals. All of the members of The Board of Directors serve as volunteers.

Summerland Review Thursday, July 26, 2012



S 9

Businesses have moved downtown by Dave Simpson Special to the Review Jennifer Kole’s Suburban Princess Boutique at 10107 Main St. has moved to the store vacated by Summerland Realty. Fresh Take Furniture, 10105 Main St., is a tastefully decorated antique store owned by John and Candy Conybeer, longtime Summerland residents. They have some new and used classics from all eras. They also have some car memorabilia and even some old license plates. If you walk down to the next block at 9917 Main St., you’ll see the new home of Just Delicious Japanese Bistro and Japanese grocery store. They moved from their old premises across the street to a larger restaurant. Owners Katsu and Maisa Onishi serve up delicious authentic Japanese food. Starting back at the top of Main Street on the opposite side, Eric’s Photography has leased out half of his store to Summerland Office Supplies, a subsidiary of the Summerland Dollar Store being run by Gwen MacDougall at 10120 Main St. Just down the street from Eric’s is the new

bakery owned by Todd Laidlaw. His new store is called True Grain Bread situated at 10108 Main St. Drop in and look at the work of art on the left side of the store. A few doors away at 10104 Main St. is The Bad Robot. Why is he bad? Well, you’ll have to ask Robert Hacking about that. Hacking has opened up an electronics store that specializes in computers and professional sound systems. They custom build computers. Continuing down the street to the next block is another antique store, albeit a small one, it has a fine selection of lace and other interesting things at The Silver Kettle Antique and Collectibles. You can visit Darlene Macpherson in her store at 9914 Main St. Diana Cleghorn has moved in with her brushes, combs and whatnot to bring you The Dog Den at 13109 Victoria Rd. N. just behind Remax. You know your dog wants some fine grooming by a certified groomer. Summerland Realty slipped around the corner into the store at 13219 Victoria Rd. N. Chiropractor

Ken Zagrodney has moved to 13215 Victoria Rd. N. Dawn’s Day Spa moved up the street to the same building at 13215 Victoria Rd. N. Snowden is a licensed esthetician and offers special treatments for women and men. Optometrist Doctor Grant Goods put up a new building at 13225 Victoria Rd. N. His staff of technicians can fix your glasses or get you a new pair of lenses. At 13604 Victoria Rd. N. you’ll find that a Subway has graced Sungate Mall. Michael Mann is the owner. A new Source owned by Ryan York at Sungate Mall is sandwiched between the Subway and the Liquor Store. In a small town such as Summerland it is important to support your local merchants and get to know them. They are all friendly and willing to help you.

Summerland Review Thursday, July 26, 2012





S 11

Staying safe on Okanagan Lake We are now into full swing summer and enjoying the many water opportunities that are available in the Okanagan.

Many people spend countless hours at the beach or in their boats trying to keep cool. Boating safety is a must and this is a

reminder to be wearing your life jackets or personal floatation devices. One of the knowledge skills taught

during Red Cross Swim lessons is how to identify the difference between a personal flotation device and a life jacket.

There are three types of floatation devices: life jackets (available in youth and adult sizes: when worn properly will

Soccer champs The Pinnacles girls soccer team capped off their season by winning gold at the provincials. The team beat North Coquitlam 5-1 in the final after beating Saanich 2-0 and Kelowna United 2-1 in round robin play. The team also won the Spring Cup in Penticton and earned silver in the Kamloops Slurpee Cup earlier in the year. There are five Summerland girls on the team. They are Kylie Erb, Alix Varchol, Lina Campagnaro, Beth Thomas and Ali Parker.

turn an unconscious person onto his or her back), PFDs (more comfortable than life jackets and come in child sizes) and inflatable PFDs (approved if you are 16 years or older and weigh more than 36 kg: must be worn at all times). A Canadianapproved floatation device has a stamp or label that tells you it is approved by either the Department of Transport or the Canadian Coast Guard. If you change or repair a floatation device in any way, it is no longer approved. A PFD is designed to keep you afloat in the water. It will also help reduce the symptoms of hypothermia. PFDs are available in a variety of colours and styles. In order for it to work, all buckles, zippers and ties must be fastened and adjusted properly. Whistles should be attached to your PFD


Brenda Ingram or life jacket. So now do you know the difference between a life jacket and PFD? The life jacket if worn properly will turn an unconscious person onto his/her back. Remember to keep safe when on and in the water and plan ahead. Happy Okanagan summer. Brenda Ingram is the Programs and Facility Manager for the District of Summerland and proud to be a long-time resident of this great community.

Granfondo provided challenge for cyclist by Eve Cashion Special to the Review A Granfondo by definition is not a race but an opportunity for a recreational bike ride with friends. It means “big ride” loosely translated from Italian. Even though it is not a race, it does bring out the competitive adrenaline in many cyclists. The Granfondo saw about 1,100 riders lined up in downtown Kelowna on July 14. In the midsection of the crowd your binoculars would pinpoint one under-trained midaged female rider. When my husband and I picked up our registration numbers and studied the map with the hill profiles we would tackle en route to Vernon any confidence I had simply vanished. The seven-kilometre steep incline around Predator Ridge caused me to reconsider. As I counted all the hills on the profile, which indicated an elevation gain of 1,238

A cycling challenge Eve Cashion of Summerland was one of around 1,100 riders in the Granfondo Kelowna cycling event.

meters, I was almost ready to downgrade my registration to the half-distance Medio Fondo. I had built up some cardio and muscle by riding from Trout Creek to Okanagan Falls a few times a week. I rode on Oliver Ranch Road which allows cyclists to enjoy the fragrance of the fields and vineyards and to avoid the highway. A few times I did the longer loop from Trout Creek to Oliver and back. Saturday morning dawned with

a slight cloud cover over Kelowna and we were grateful for cooler temperatures knowing how quickly one can overheat on those hills. Standing at the starting line I observed not every leg was svelte and tanned. In fact, some were quite white as though all their training had been done at spin classes in the gym. I positioned myself with the middle-aged riders whose goal was to finish the 122 kilometres in six hours. We were a mixed bunch, not

all lean and brawny, in fact some stout and portly. This observation is to give hope to any would-be cyclist who is considering the next Granfondo. We left downtown Kelowna via Glenmore Road, the fastest riders at the front were a swarm of colorful bees in bright jerseys. The rest followed in the breeze they left behind. As the threatening seven-kilometre incline loomed ahead, we geared down, huffed and puffed. At least one of us unclipped

our riding cleats and pushed our bike, jogging in our socks. Yes, it was me but I was not the only one. The 122-kilometre route was supported by rest and aid stations about every 20 kilometres. The Vernon station, being the halfway point had gourmet hors d’oeurves prepared by the caterer. Imagine grinding uphill for the past 12 kilometres and then arriving in Vernon to be greeted with a tray of diced strawberries topped with crumbled goat cheese served on french bread. Our return route passed through the undulating terrain beside Kalamalka and Wood Lakes. For this rider, it would tally up to three more hours in the saddle. In a air-conditioned vehicle those peaks are indeed scenic vistas but a cyclist’s viewpoint allows close study of every meter. I thought I was finishing strong pedalling at 33 kilometres an hour through the

outlying areas of Kelowna, and later my husband told me he finished in a peloton, a group, which was buzzing at 45 kilometres hour. Upon reflection, I was under-prepared for the gruelling hills and every steep incline found me grunting and thinking “ this is about as much fun as a wisdom tooth extraction.” The best part was knowing the last steep slope was achieved and the massage tables were awaiting. Over lunch we

made new friends and a few of us vaguely thought about being in better condition for next summer’s Granfondo Kelowna. As Summerland residents we have wonderful steep hills designed to build stamina – try cycling up to the Summerland Golf Club or your personal favorite hill. Here’s hoping there will be a larger representation in 2013 from Summerland. Eve Cashion was a Summerland participant in Granfondo Kelowna

New to Summerland?


She will celebrate at Dr. Andrew Pavilion, located at the Extended Care Unit in Summerland, surrounded by family, fellow residents and staff. Grace made her way to British Columbia 25 years ago, following her daughter, son in law & their family; after the sudden passing of her husband. Prior to moving to B.C., Grace spent the previous 75 years in Saskatchewan, with stops in various locations throughout the province!


Triumphed over cancer once but could not defeat it again, valiant and determined though she was to the end. Judith began slipping away on July 16th, the second anniversary of the death of her beloved husband, Ernest Firtl, and died at Moog & Friends Hospice House in Penticton two days later. She leaves her daughter, Debbie Gerrits, granddaughter Emma Jaffe-Gerrits, both of Summerland, her sister, Viktoria Valenta, nephew Roman, niece Eva-Maria, and grandnieces Yamuna and Viviane, all of Vienna as well as many dear friends in Austria, Canada, the United States and Australia. Born in Vienna in 1931, the hard times of World War II in Europe found her scrounging for food and taught her lifelong lessons of resourcefulness and frugality but also imbued her with a zest for life. Immediately after the war when she was just 17 she met her “Ernst” on the Danube. The young couple immigrated to Canada two weeks after her 20th birthday, landing on October 18, 1951 with $40 between them and settled in Ontario. The early years were tough and included maid’s work and tobacco harvesting. Judy and Ernest were married on the first anniversary of their arrival in Canada on October 18, 1952 and remained a happy, vital, adventurous and inseparable couple for 58 years. They bought their first home in Ajax in 1957 where Debbie was born the following year. Judy worked for and eventually became the plant manager of a textile company. Judith and Ernest built their dream home in Uxbridge when Ernest retired from IBM in 1983 and seven years later when Judy retired she and Ernest moved to Summerland where in 1990 they built a lovely home on Canyon View Road. During their Ontario years Judy and Ernest camped and boated constantly and in BC they loved to travel, cross country ski and walk hand-in-hand. Judy was an accomplished seamstress and pattern maker, did amazing knitting and intricate crocheting and loved to entertain, cook and bake. She volunteered for years at the Ladies’ Auxiliary thrift store in Summerland. The Firtl’s beautiful garden was a cheerful haven for birds throughout the year and a cool oasis for family and friends on hot Okanagan summer days. Judy’s cherished granddaughter Emma practically grew up in that loveliest of back yards, under the ever watchful eye of her Omi. A consummate rummy tiles player, Judy loved to share her favourite game with everyone who showed interest – and there were lots of them – but, except on rare occasions, few of her pupils managed to beat her. This set is for you Omi! Heartfelt thanks to the staff at Moog House for taking such good care of Judy. In memory of Judy, friends are invited to send condolences to and consider making a donation to Moog & Friends Hospice House. For details see Judith and Ernest will be interred together at a private graveside service in Canyon View Cemetery Summerland BC. Condolences my be directed to the family through And Flights of Angels Sing Thee to Thy Rest
