A Summerland company is working to get a wireless safety product into workplaces across North America. Rick Shervey, director of Pro-Active Safety Systems Technologies Inc., said the wireless technology will help to prevent collisions with mobile equipment at work sites. The device uses radiofrequency identification technologies to track the precise movements of

equipment and workers. When a worker is too close to mobile equipment, a specially designed safety helmet or safety vest emits a beep and a vibration to alert the worker. Shervey said the technology can detect people in the vehicle blind spots and lets the workers know they are in danger. “People I know have been killed or badly injured,” he said. He added that there

are many accidents across Canada and the United States each year which could have been pre-

pending. Developing the product has been a long process, the result of almost six years of work and $2.5 million. Grant fund-

ing has come in from the National Research Council. Now that the design is done, Shervey wants to get into production before the end of this year. He would like to have all parts of the product built in the Okanagan, with the final assembly and packaging to be done in Summerland. He hopes to have around 30 people employed in a couple of years when the company is in full production.

Apple growers turn to cider by John Arendt After years of enjoying homemade apple cider among themselves, several Summerland orchardists are now marketing their product commercially. Tom Kinvig of Sum-

merland Heritage Cider Company said he and some fellow orchardists have been making cider together for 10 to 15 years, gathering for a glass every Tuesday. At the time, Kinvig used a cider recipe he had found as a way to use

some of the apples from his orchard. Over time, as he and the other fruit growers continued their Tuesday meetings, they looked at ways to make a better apple cider. “It wasn’t always the best stuff,” said cider

maker Bob Thompson. “We thought there had to be a better way.” Four or five years ago, Thompson took a course in cider making in Washington State. The orchardists also started growing apple varieties designed for

cider. These varieties, including Michelin, Kingston, Black and others, are not grown for eating. Instead, they are European varieties, some of them more than 150 years old. See TRADITIONAL Page 3

West Nile virus precautions urged Although West Nile virus showed up in the Okanagan Valley in 2009, the disease remains rare. Still, the Interior Health Authority is urging people to take measures to reduce the spread of the disease. West Nile virus is spread from infected birds to people through mosquito bites. Since 2009, three cases have been reported in the province, all in the Okanagan. Last year, there were no reported cases. “It’s not as great a concern as we had originally speculated,” said Kevin

Touchet, manager of environmental health with the Interior Health Authority. The disease has been more prevalent in Saskatchewan, Alberta and Washington State. Touchet said the presence of the Rocky Mountains has kept the virus from moving west. The climate of the Okanagan Valley has also kept West Nile virus from spreading more quickly here. About one in five of those who are bitten by an infected mosquito will show symptoms of the disease. Fewer than one in 100 will have ser-

ious problems from the disease. Touchet said some prevention can begin at home, by getting rid of potential mosquito breeding grounds. This includes draining stagnant pools of water, emptying water from wheelbarrows after a rain and cleaning out eaves or birdbaths where water tends to collect. For those going to areas where mosquitoes are present, the Interior Heath Authority urges a few precautions. ❏ Use mosquito repellent. Products containing DEET

are safe if the label precautions are followed. ❏ Wear protective clothing. Dark clothing tends to attract mosquitos. In areas with lots of mosquitoes, wear loose, fullfitting pants and longsleeved shirts. Avoid using perfumes, soaps, hair care prod-

ucts and lotions with floral fragrances. ❏ Install mosquito screens on windows and consider staying inside between dusk and dawn and in the early evening. ❏ Prevent mosquito breeding around your home. Stagnant pools can be a big source of mosquitoes.

The province tests dead birds in the corvid family, including crows, ravens, magpies and jays, since these birds are more likely to die from West Nile Virus. People can report dead corvid birds to the province. Visit the B.C. Centre for Disease Control Dead

Bird Reporting page at bccdc.ca/discond/a-z/_w/WestNileVirus/Surveillance/WNvDeadBirdReporting.htm. In addition, Interior Health traps mosquitoes at 14 sites in the Southern Interior and sends them to a provincial lab for testing.

ATV stolen On Aug. 2, police were called after a green Yamaha Grizzly ATV was stolen from the 11000 block of Prairie Valley Road. The theft occurred overnight. The ATV has aftermarket wheels, chrome underplating, a rear seat and utility box and a chainsaw rack at the front.

Vehicles stolen Two vehicles were stolen over the past week.On Aug. 2, a gold 2000 Ford F250 pickup truck was taken from the 5000 block of Woods Avenue. The license number is DD5504. On Aug.4 to 5, a blue 1998 Dodge Caravan was taken from Trout Creek Auto Sales. The license number is 568LPE. Anyone with information about the thefts is asked to contact the Summerland RCMP detachment.

Thefts attempted Police were called following two unsuccessful vehicle thefts last week.

“The old way of doing things is still the best way of doing things,” Thompson said. While it is possible to make cider from any apple variety, he believes the quality of his cider is superior because of the apples used. “We think we make a cider unlike anything else in the valley,” he said. “It’s a far more complex product than you can get from Galas and Golden Delicious and Macintosh.” The apples have a bittersweet and bittersharp taste and contain a high tannin level. At present, they have planted a little more than one hectare in cider apples. Much of this land is not yet in produc-

Exercise improves your sleep and your heart – and it’s a great prescription for diabetes. Aim for 2 kinds of exercise: aerobic and anaerobic. Aerobic exercise (walking, biking, swimming) for 30 minutes 5 days per week strengthens the heart & lungs and improves blood sugar & blood pressure. Anaerobic exercise ( strengthening with weights, therabands) just 3 days per week reduces insulin resistance. Exercise: a miracle drug? Excess body weight is the top risk factor for type 2 diabetes, but losing as little as 10% can significantly improve your health. Exercise certainly helps but the most effective strategy is cutting calories. Choose one (or more!) of the following: Eat high-fat/high-calorie foods less often; eat smaller portions; substitute lower-fat/lower-calorie alternatives. All it takes to reach your goal is 250-500 less calories per day.

Health Matters

One of the most difficult situations for avoiding excess calories is dining out. Whenever possible, plan ahead and check for nutrition information online. On the menu, look for low-calorie/ diabetic options. Choose foods that are not fried and don’t have heavy sauces. Substitute veggie side-orders for starchy foods. Finally, ask for a take-out container and save a third to a half of your meal before even beginning to eat.

our pick

Safety innovation After years of research and development work, Pro-Active Safety Systems Technologies Inc. is working to attract investors for an innovative safety system. The system uses radiofrequency identification technology to help workers prevent collisions with dangerous mobile equipment in the workplace. Considering the number of injuries and deaths from such collisions in Canada and the United States, there is clearly a need for good safety innovations. This safety invention is significant for several reasons. It could help to create jobs throughout the Okanagan as companies are needed to build the various components for the devices. The assembly work would then be done in Summerland, resulting in some job creation here. After coping with significant job losses in the last few years, anything which could add jobs deserves a careful look. Summerland needs a wide range of businesses if the community is to be vibrant. Developing the technology is important and it has been a time-consuming task, but the work does not end with the device. Since the beginning of the year, three devices, developed in Summerland, have been unveiled. The others are a rescue cart for firefighters, developed by four members of the Summerland Fire Department, and a device which combines hot water heating, space heating, air conditioning and backup electricity into one unit. Each of the innovations this year deserves further consideration. There is a lot of creative work coming from this community. We have the ideas in Summerland. Now we need the investors to step forward to help bring these ideas beyond the concept stage and into full production.

The long weekend brought visitors to Summerland for two sporting events. Longboarders gathered on Giant’s Head Mountain for their annual competition while participants in the Ultraman Canada triathlon finished the intense three-day event in Memorial Park on Monday. We are pleased the organizers of both events chose our community.

bad Pipeline posturing doesn’t help apples VICTORIA – The B.C. Liberal government is taking its new hard-line approach to federal environmental hearings on the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline proposal in September. Environment Minister Terry Lake has filed the B.C. government’s notice to cross-examine Enbridge, one of the world’s biggest pipe- Tom Fletcher line operators. Lake outlined the “tough questions” B.C. representatives will ask about spill response capacity on land and sea, tanker escort tugboats, pipe wall thickness, and Enbridge’s sluggish response to a pipeline rupture in Michigan. That’s all fine, and to be expected after Premier Christy Clark’s high-profile confrontation with Alberta Premier Alison Redford going into the recent premiers’ meeting in Halifax. Clark’s demands for “worldleading” safety and spill response, as well as meeting the constitutional obligation to consult and accommodate aboriginal groups along the route, are mostly a statement of the obvious. Her call for a “fair share” of proceeds from exported oil to reflect B.C.’s risk has been assaulted from all sides. Pipeline opponents seized on Clark’s suggestion that a major oil spill might be tolerable if there was enough money in it

for B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix picked up the theme as he conducted his own belated tour of the proposed route to reiterate his opposition. There had been earlier hints from Alberta that B.C. might need further rewards for the risk. But when Clark made the “fair share” demand public, Redford was moved to channel Margaret Thatcher, declaring: “The Premier of Alberta is not going to blink on royalties.” The lady’s not for blinking, but

than 60 years. Protesters have an easy target in Kinder Morgan. With a tenfold increase to 25 tankers a month proposed to sail under the Lions Gate bridge, a heavy oil spill from Second Narrows to Stanley Park would be catastrophic to Vancouver’s environment and economy. Tankers have made that trip safely nearly 100 years, but the congested modern shipping lane offers more threat of collision, and clearing Burrard Inlet

Even if some way can be found to levy a B.C. tax on revenues from the Northern Gateway pipeline, it’s no solution. neither is B.C.’s Iron Snowbird, as Preston Manning dubbed Clark this spring. All this political theatre doesn’t amount to much. I’ll stand by my January prediction that the Enbridge proposal is unlikely to proceed, mainly due to the tangled state of aboriginal claims. Wealthy U.S. foundations that view the B.C. North Coast as their 500-year eco-experiment will be happy to help fund a decade of legal challenges, while continuing the media-spinning and protest support they are doing now. Even if some way can be found to levy a B.C. tax on revenues from the Northern Gateway pipeline, it’s no solution. For one thing, it would confer an advantage to the Trans-Mountain pipeline that has been shipping Alberta oil to Burnaby and the U.S. for more

for near-daily tanker transits would disrupt the rest of B.C.’s shipping trade. An Angus Reid poll last week showed as many as half of respondents remain openminded about the costs and benefits of new oil pipelines across B.C. Unlike B.C. politicians, they seem interested in learning more before making up their minds. Dix and the NDP ran to the front of the anti-pipeline parade early, as they did with the carbon tax and other issues. Clark began the Northern Gateway discussion with a principled position to wait for the result of the federal review, but that’s apparently out the window with an election looming. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews. com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Once again concerns have been raised after a small forestry c a m p g ro u n d west of Summerland was damaged. The Trout Creek Crossing campground receives more damage than other campgrounds along the Summerland-Princeton Road. The cost of cleaning up and repairing the campground quickly becomes significant. If you know who is responsible for the damage to this site, please pass the information to the RCMP.

Forestry campground destroyed Dear Editor: It is a shame that just a few youths have to ruin it for everyone else. For the past five years, youths have

burned picnic tables, destroyed the outhouse and cut down young trees to make room to park their vehicles and tents while partying at the

Trout Creek Crossing forestry campsite. This campground is also at an access to the Trans Canada Trail. This costs the tax-

payers more than $500 for each replacement table, plus the costs to transport, for clean-up and destruction of property. The Trout Creek

Crossing campsite cost about $2,500 after the last youth party there. It would be a shame to see this site closed.

How would you like your property destroyed? Anyone seeing damage being done can report it to B.C. Forestry Services at

THE EARLY YEARS

Troop in a truck

Photo courtesy of the Summerland Museum

Packed into a truck for the long, dusty drive to summer camp at Okanagan Falls, the Summerland Scout Troop was probably anticipating fun, adventure and a break from their regular chores at home. Their parents were probably anticipating peace and quiet. In 1918, the trip to Okanagan Falls on a narrow dirt road, especially with this newfangled mode of transportation, made just getting there a big part of the summer camp adventure.

Oil pipeline plan is sheer madness Dear Editor: Sheer madness! Sending that mess from the tar sands — oops! I mean oil sands — through all those hundreds of

kilometres of manmade (and repeatedly proven to be fallible) pipe and then to ship it out from Kitimat, down through the fiord called the

Douglas Channel. If it gets through there unharmed and manages to dock in the mysterious East (which is accessed by sailing west) it

will bring a fine price, though not as much as the wages that would be paid to local workers if it were to be processed locally.

The jobs involved in processing both this messy stuff and the raw logs we continue to export will enable a lot of Chinese workers to buy

nice new cars — but not from Canada. And no, sir, I’m not a “radicalized environmentalist”. Harry Killick Summerland

Informational warning signs needed at dog beach Dear Editor: At the time of this writing, it appears that there is no indication that the Peach Orchard Dog Beach will be fully fenced to provide safe, secure enjoyment for dogs

1-250-558-1700 or 1-250-558-1728. Take pictures, record license plate numbers. Vera Antonsen Summerland

and dog owners alike. If the addition of a small portion of chain link fencing to the south end of the area is too much, may I suggest informational warning signs be posted in the area.

Wording might be something like this: This is an unsecured and not fully fenced area. If your dog leaves this area off leash it will be considered unlawfully at large, may be seized and subject

to Summerland’s Dog Control Bylaw #96-002. Penalties include fines up to $2,000 per day. After 72 hours the dog may be destroyed. Elden Ulrich Summerland

Dear Editor: I would like to express my concerns about the new proposed costs for water usage for our .20 acre lot. The recent District of Summerland statement had our midApril to mid-May costs at $40.29. For the following monthly billing period, the cost shot way up to $126.46. This huge increase must reflect the start of the irrigation season which will span six months of the year. I do not feel that these rates could be considered affordable or justified and would hate to have to let our garden die off as a result. Our household is quite efficient, with new dual-flush toilets, new dishwasher and front-load washer. Outdoors, we have re-done the garden with lots of drought tolerant plants in mulched beds. We have a vegetable garden to augment our summer grocery costs. We have added drip-lines to water our only real luxury, a new hedge of tiny cedars. I feel that rates must be re-examined and need to be adjusted downwards significantly. As it stands we would be charged approximately $1,000 per year, up from approximately $430 last year.

Providing service to businesses It’s generally accepted that membership organizations exist to serve their members. In most cases, it’s fairly easy to classify those members. For example members of a hobby club share a similar passion and professional membership organizations have their profession in common. Chambers of commerce have a much more broadly based membership in that the common denominators are business

ownership and enough of a desire to improve the business climate in a community that they join the local Chamber. The Summerland Chamber is unique in British Columbia in that every business that has a license with the District of Summerland automatically becomes a member. In addition, all our local service and cultural organizations are also members of the chamber. This means that we have an unusual-

ly large membership relative to the size of our town, and that such a broad membership brings with it very diverse goals and expectations. So how do we meet everybody’s individual needs? The short answer is that we can’t. Instead we must continually work to meet the needs of businesses and our community as a whole. We do this through marketing Summerland and serving our membership through educa-

tion, promotion and advocacy. Advocacy takes the form of having our views represented in the wider region, for example, by having a seat on the Kelowna International Airport advisory committee, or by supporting wider community initiatives such as the Penticton Hospital expansion or bringing a new airline to the local airport. Locally, we work to make our members’ needs known through avenues such as these

articles, through communication with the District and by having representation on the Economic Development Committee. Promotion efforts include creating a Tourism Advisory Committee to explore a community vision, submitting an application for a provincial business award, creating a comprehensive business information package for someone wanting to move to Summerland or promoting local business initiatives such as the Summerland Credit Union Capital Fund. Through our voice in the Thompson Okanagan Business Examiner we can also make the wider region aware of news in Summerland. An example of educational opportunities that we can promote to our

Recycling program now accepts oil Oil, filters and containers added to list of materials allowed at site B.C. Used Oil Management Association sent two ambassadors to Summerland recently to promote recycling of used oil. Oil, oil containers and oil filters can be dropped off at the Summerland landfill to be recycled by B.C. Used Oil. The site is open to the public and do-ityourselfers. It is not to be used by commercial businesses, usually because they have been set up as oil collectors as well. Summerland landfill recycles not only used oil, but other products as well. More information about what is recyc-

lable at the landfill is available at summerland.ca/departments/works/landfill.aspx. There are also three medications returns facilities in Summerland which are Pharmasave 9515 Main St., Shoppers Drug Mart at 10108 Jubilee Rd. and Summerland Medicine Centre, 13009 Rosedale Ave.. More than 18 million litres of used oil is not recovered by the B.C. Used Oil program each year. These oils are hazardous to the environment and drinking water. Instead of sitting in landfills, used oil can be recycled into a variety of useful products. Information on environmental handling charges is available at usedoilrecycling.com/en/bc.

Practice road safety Watch for pedestrians at crosswalks and around playground zones.

Summerland’s Heritage Commission has launched a $10,000 fundraising campaign to restore two stone road markers that have welcomed residents and visitors to Summerland for more than 70 years. Erected in 1939, the markers originally featured two attractive apple-shaped signs on each side: one reading Welcome to Summerland, and the other reading Good Luck. At the southern entrance to Summerland, one marker sits well below road level on the east side of Highway 97 in Trout Creek, about 100 metres north of the bridge. It became barely visible to motorists after the highway was

upgraded in 1990. The other marker is located on Bentley Road, which at one time served as the old highway and the northern entrance. “The marker in Trout Creek needs repairs before it can be moved to its new location at the tourist pullout on the highway, approximately one kilometre to the north,” said commission chair David Gregory. “New

foundations will be required, and we will also need new signs to replace the originals that are in poor shape. We hope to have that work done locally.” Cheques can be made payable to the Summerland Museum and Heritage Society and sent to the museum. Tax receipts will be issued for donations $25 and more. The Municipality of Summerland will

not contribute funds, but will administer contracts to carry out the work, liaise with the province to secure space at the pullout, and supervise installation. The markers were originally erected through the generosity of J. H. McDonald, a lumber executive from New Westminster who fell in love with the community on his family’s visits to Summerland.

Belanger in provincial pageant Former Blossom Queen vying for role as B.C Ambassador by John Arendt A Summerland contestant will represent the community at the B.C. Ambassador pageant in Merritt later this month. Jacquelyn Belanger, a former Blossom Queen in Summerland, will be at the provincial competition Aug. 17 and 18. There are 12 contestants from around British Columbia. During the two days of the pageant, she will give two speeches, one of them about the community. For this speech, she will be dressed to represent something from the community. “I’m dressing up as Giant’s Head Mountain,” she said. While the pageant is an opportunity for Belanger to represent the community, she said it is also a good opportunity for her to improve herself. “It was an oppor-

tunity I could not let pass. I had to do it,” she said. In addition to the two public speeches, Belanger has also been preparing for a three-hour knowledge exam which will cover all of British Columbia. During the preparation, she said she has gained a new appreciation for the province. For example, she has had to study the meaning behind the elements in the provincial flag. “It’s not just a flag anymore,” she said. “It’s what our province stands for.” The pageant also has an evening gown segment, an impromptu question, an interview with the judges and a talent presentation. For her talent, she will play the saxophone. She also performed on the saxophone for the 2011 Blossom Pageant in Summerland. At the end, three equally ranked ambassadors will be selected.

Sailing away Fred Trautmann, left, Thor Clausen and Danny Foster, at right prepare to take participants out on a boat at the Summerland Yacht Club during a Taste of Sailing. The event was held in conjunction with the fifth annual Okanagan Women’s Regatta. A total of 66 women registered for the introduction to sailing. With Trautmann, Clausen and Foster are Jean Futa, Theresa Kwas, Joan Swan and Charlotte Burbeck.

Women compete in annual regatta The Okanagan Women’s Sailing Association held the fifth annual Okanagan Women’s Regatta and A Taste of Sailing in Summerland on the weekend of July 27 to 29. Starting on the afternoon of July 27, volunteers from the Summerland Yacht Club had more than 60 women sign up

for A Taste of Sailing. Volunteers took out women who had never tried sailing to give them a sample of the sport. Throughout the evening the competitors for the fifth annual Okanagan Women’s Regatta were arriving from throughout the Okanagan Valley, giving the women in the

Taste of Sailing an opportunity to meet them. All day Saturday and Sunday the competitors in the regatta were on the water racing. Competitors come from throughout the Okanagan as well as the Lower Mainland to test themselves

against their peers. The competition was close in all fleets, lots of fun with spinnakers flying everywhere. There were three fleets in the event, the winners of each were: A Fleet – Ghost Rider, helmed by

Kerri Hardisty out of the Kelowna Yacht Club B Fleet – Contagious, helmed by Gillian Thomson out of the Kelowna Yacht Club D Fleet – Fitzcarraldo, helmed by Briar Hahn out of the Penticton Yacht Club

Witnessing the stories at the Olympics As my eight-day Olympic swimming extravaganza unfolded, I felt so privileged to witness the personal stories, triumphs, emotions and excitement of the Olympics. As an athlete, it was difficult to describe an Olympic experience, and I find it just as difficult this time, as a CTV commentator.

Friendliness The Olympic Games always resonate with a unique mix of happiness, excitement, goodwill and a global community all blended into one. As an athlete, I experienced three Olympics — Barcelona, Atlanta, Sydney — and was a spectator at three more — Athens and the Winter Olympics of Turino and Vancouver. London was my seventh Olympic experience. Every country displays their different flavours and all these Olympics to me were equally as special. As many British Columbians experienced in Vancouver 2010, there is a definite sense of spirit. There is an energy that resonates at a deep level throughout the competitors, volunteers and spectators. It is simply beautiful. One would love to bottle that combination and replicate it universally and constantly. Friendly rivalry exists between so many athletes within one’s own country but also between countries. Seeing 20-yearold, Chad Le Clos of South Africa, win the 200 butterfly by 5/100th of a second over Michael Phelps was a surprise finish no one expected. In an interview with CTV, Phelps was asked how it felt to have Le Clos beat him as Le Clos was just

eight years old when he watched Phelps set his first world record and wanted to be just like Phelps one day. Phelps response was, “I love that guy,” and he genuinely was happy for the young gold medalist who defeated him in his signature event.

Excitement There is never a lack of excitement at the Olympics in terms of athletic performances and accomplishments. The top moments for me in the swimming pool was seeing two British Columbian swimmers mount the Olympic podium. Brent Hayden of Mission, winning bronze in the 100 freestyle and Ryan Cochrane of Victoria winning silver in the 1500 freestyle. These were the only two medals for Canada in the pool. The determination and self-confidence required to have a perfectly executed performance on game day is admirable and many new young Canadian swimmers will be inspired.

Another top moments for me was seeing Phelps become the greatest Olympian of all time, winning his career total of 22 medals, 18 of them gold. In London, his first two races were subpar, finishing out of the medals in the 400 IM and silvers in the 4x100 freestyle and 200 fly. He maintained his composure and ended up winning four gold medals and it was so satisfying to see the greatest swimmer and Olympian of all time show his human side of going through

struggles and hanging in there to elevate back up to victory. There were young females who at 15 and 16 years of age, set world records and won gold medals in complete shock — Ruta Meilutyte (Lithuania), Katie Ledecky (USA) and Ye Shiwen (China) as well as veterans who competed in their third and fourth Olympics.

Emotion So many emotions whizzed around inside of me, watching swimmers hold back tears not only after victory, but after competing in their

last career race. Sport has given so much to them personally, their families but also to all of us fans and supporters. Life is about allowing real emotions to be experienced and both celebrating with each other and sympathizing in difficult times. This togetherness unites us as a world community and simply as human beings. From the Blade Runner, Oscar Pistorius, making history to Paula Findlay succeeding in simply finishing her triathlon, or Scott Dickens weeping to learn he earned a final swim. It is priceless to witness families experiencing their child’s dreams. We can have these Olympic moments not every four years, but every day. By taking the time to get to know each other in the community better, caring about some one else’s goals, celebrating small successes and being supportive when times are tough. This is what I love about Summerland, and it being a smaller community. I feel like we are more aware of these community factors and are more personally vested. You don’t have to travel thousands of miles to experience a

LEGALLY SPEAKING...

A public service message from Bell, Jacoe & Company

Computers and the Law Computers and the new software and technology that has accompanied them have had a huge impact on all our daily lives. Well, the Legal system is no different. Computers now occupy most Lawyer's desks and absolutely all of our Secretary's Desks. In addition to revolutionizing word processing and research techniques, computers and their related technologies have created a huge new range of questions to be answered in the fields of Privacy, Publishing, Censorship and Trademarks to name a few. It will be some time before Courts can decide on the parameters and rules to be put in place to govern these areas. Many people in the legal community have realized that the technology is changing and expanding so fast that the game may change before the rules are in place. Lets hope that the new technology not only raises the question but also helps the system quickly determine the answer.

Horseshoe tourney scheduled Horseshoe players from around British Columbia will compete in Summerland this weekend. The Summerland Horseshoe Club is sponsoring the 56th annual Horseshoe

Pitching Tournament Aug. 11 and 12 in Memorial Park. Nick Culic of the Summerland Horseshoe Club said the tournament will bring players from the rest of the Okanagan Val-

ley and beyond. After this tournament, he said some of the players will go on to compete at the provincial level in Vancouver and at the B.C. Senior Games. Last year, the Oka-

nagan was represented by four players from Summerland and one from Vernon. All five brought back medals. He said the horseshoe club in Summerland used to have

many members. While it is still vibrant, he would like to see more joining in the future. “We really need to get some younger people to be involved,” he said.”

Olive Myrtle Caldwell/Freeman The family of Olive Caldwell is saddened to announce her passing on Tuesday July 31, 2012, in Penticton. Olive was born on October 3, 1923 in Ethelton, Saskatchewan to Rupert and Katie Brown, the fifth child of eight. She was raised on the family farm outside of Ethelton, Sask. In 1941 she attended Normal School in Saskatoon. She taught school at June Rose School west of Simpson for two years. At that time she met the saxophone/fiddle player of the small county school’s band. She married Donald Freeman on July 1, 1944. They farmed 5 miles west of Imperial and together they raised seven children. In 1952 they moved the house to Imperial, Saskatchewan. Olive was a 4-H leader in Imperial. She was very involved with the United Church Women (UCW). Olive and Donald both loved to curl. They spent many hours curling together. After celebrating 25 years of marriage, Donald passed away in June of 1970. Olive and the three youngest children moved to Summerland, BC in the summer of 1971. In November 1974 she married John Caldwell of Summerland. They lived for many happy years in the Trout Creek area. They enjoyed many trips fishing, travelling to Arizona and other parts in the United States, and travelled across Canada to visit the Maritimes. Olive made a trip to New Zealand and Australia with a friend. Olive was a member of the The Rebecca Lodge of Summerland. She was very involved in making turkey pot pies and other fund-raising functions for the Rebecca’s. In 1999-2000 she was the president of the Rebecca Assembly of British Columbia. She travelled the province visiting all the different Rebecca Assemblies. Sister-inlaw Edna Brown, a Rebecca Sister, accompanied and assisted on these trips. In 1992 they moved to a new home and John passed away in August of 1993. Olive loved crafts. She spent many hours knitting, crocheting and sewing. In her later years she tatted many daisies for her card making. She was always making something. Olive and Don were blessed with seven children; Shirley, Patricia, Beverly, Gerald, Ronald, Mavis and Phillip. She was pre-deceased by her parents, husbands Don and John, her daughter Pat, sisters Beatrice, Helen, and Audrey and sister-in-law Betty.
