John Arendt Summerland Review

Bre Harker picks some apricots from a residential tree. Volunteers with the Summerland Asset Development Initiative’s Fruit Tree Project have been harvesting fruit for homeowners with trees on their property.

The documents have now been signed for a development on Wharton Street. On Thursday afternoon, developers and members of municipal council met to sign the paperwork. Mayor Janice Perrino said the multi-storey development will benefit the downtown area. “This is such good news for Summerland,” she said. “This is a real boost. It will help to revitalize our downtown.” Before construction can begin, the developers will need a development permit and a building permit. The development permit will go to the municipality’s design committee and then to council. The building permit is handled directly through the Developm e n t S e r v i c e s “This is such good news for d e p a r t - Summerland. This is a real ment. boost. It will help to revitalize Randy G i b s o n , our downtown.” Janice Perrino one of the developers, said the target for groundbreaking is February, 2013. The completion of the first building is expected for early 2014. By early September, a sign will go up to announce the project. Joe Mahovlich, one of the developers, said the project’s value will be between $90 and $120 million. Perrino said the development will help the downtown area. “This whole project is in the core,” she said. “It’s where we want to grow.” The developers have been working on this project for the past 18 months. In spring, they presented conceptual drawings of the project at a public open house. See PROJECT Page 3

Branding to assist in promotions Municipality and chamber will work together to define community by John Arendt A $10,000 community branding exercise is designed to assist the

municipality and the Summerland Chamber of Economic Development and Tourism in promoting the community. The municipality and the chamber will each contribute $5,000 for the exercise, which will be completed by the Tour-

ism Advisory Authority. Connie Denesiuk, a member of the chamber board, said the branding exercise is important for the community to market itself. “Who are we and what can we give to our visitors?” she asked.

While the chamber has worked on branding and marketing in the past, Denesiuk said this is the first time the chamber and the municipality are working together in this area. She added that the exercise by itself must also lead to action and change.

“It’s a huge waste of time for people to get involved in committees that don’t result in change,” she said. Mayor Janice Perrino said the branding exercise is an inexpensive way for the community to define itself. See NEED Page 5

POLICE REPORT Girl attacked Police are looking for help from the public in locating a suspect in an assault and attempted abduction of a 13-year-old girl last week. She was walking west on a trail near Victoria Road north and Julia Street at about 2 p.m Friday when a man came up behind her and grabbed her by the hand. She tried to pull away and he slapped her once in the face. She screamed and the man ran away eastbound on the trail. The suspect is described as aboriginal, between 30 and 40 years of age, about six feet in height and 175 pounds. He has scarring or pock marks all over his face. He was wearing a black sweater, black cotton pants and runners. Anyone having information about this suspect or this incident should call the Summerland RCMP at 250-494-7416 or contact Crime Stoppers by phone, web or text.

Boy towed on road Police got a call Monday afternoon about a child riding in a boat being towed behind a motor vehicle on Highway 97 north of Summerland. They followed up and ticketed the driver. The boy was hanging on to an inner tube.

Discussing development

Canyon rescue

Mayor Janice Perrino, second from left, and municipal planner Ian McIntosh, fourth from left, answer questions on the proposed Bentley Road Industrial Area at an open house on Thursday afternoon. A total of 34 people attended. The proposal calls for more land for industrial development following the removal of a block of properties from the Agricultural Land Reserve. Those who wish to fill out a questionnaire on the proposal may do so until Sept. 1. The questionnaires are available at Municipal Hall or online at summerland.ca.

Summerland search and rescue had to help a 20-year-old Burnaby man who got stuck climbing the canyon wall at the trestle over Trout Creek. He and a companion were attempting the climb Sunday afternoon when he had to be rescued.

LEGALLY SPEAKING...

A public service message from Bell, Jacoe & Company

Mistakes can Happen No one is immune from committing an honest mistake that can become funnier with the passing of time. The Advocate, BC's legal magazine, relayed a story that occurred to an unfortunate gentleman of law. He received a Transfer of Land that was requested to register the Land Title Office. Because he had not seen the client or drawn up the transfer he was not privy to all the details of the transaction. In looking at the Transfer he noticed that the occupation and address of one of the new owners had apparently been left off the document. As there was some urgency to the transaction he copied out the first purchaser address and listed the gentleman's occupation as "businessman". Upon being advised of the registration of the Transfer the first purchaser was surprised to find that he owned the property jointly with Mr. Tom Obo, a person he had never heard of ! Turns out that the mysterious Mr. Tom Obo was in fact the Postal Code for Airdrie, Alberta T0M 0B0.

Project to house library and museum Continued from Page 1

The first five-storey building in the plan will have an area of more than 6,000 square metres. It will include commercial and professional spaces and residential units. Additional buildings are also planned. The development will also house the Summerland branch of the Okanagan Regional Library and the Summerland Museum. At present, both are in buildings much too small to meet their present needs. The library, with an area of 316 square metres, is 48 per cent of the size needed to adequately serve Summerland’s present population, according to the Okanagan Regional Library. The building was opened in 1981. Since 2003, the Okanagan Regional Library board has been working to find a larger library location for Summerland. The museum, with an area of 372 square metres, is also facing problems because of space limitations. The building has been in place since 1983. While the project has been billed as a Wharton Street development, Gibson said the focal point will be on Kelly Avenue, across from Memorial Park. For several years, the municipality has been looking to

develop the area. Earlier, another developer had expressed interest in the Wharton Street project, but an agreement was not signed and the plan expired in January, 2011. The property was then re-evaluated on March 28, 2011. Municipal planner Ian McIntosh said the project will include a $2.8 million cultural centre, a $2.1 million museum and $1.037 million worth of servicing in the area.

Recently, The Journal of the American Dietetic Association reviewed 8 herbal products commonly used by diabetics. Five of the eight products were found to have no clinical evidence of benefit: aloe vera, chromium, cinnamon, fenugreek and nopal (prickly pear). Bitter melon, ginseng and gymnema had evidence supporting some effectiveness, but side effects limit their use – most importantly the danger of hypoglycemia. The jury is still out on the advantages of acupuncture, although the risk of complications seems to be low. One study suggested improved arthritic knee pain and function, while a meta-analysis indicated that benefits, while noted, were similar to placebo! Usually, 4-10 needles are placed for up to 30 minutes with 6-12 sessions over 3 months. If you want to give acupuncture a try, be sure to seek out an experienced practitioner. The dietary supplement business is a multi-million dollar industry and grand claims of effectiveness are often made to attract sales. When considering a product, do your homework to ensure the purported benefits are based on facts. Remember to check the safety as well and if you choose to take a supplement, tell your health care providers. Many “natural” products can interfere with medications, lab tests and health conditions. Make our pharmacies a stop in your research into supplement and alternative health claims. We do our best to stay up-todate on the latest information.

EDITORIAL

our pick

Developing in the core The Wharton Street development project has the potential to significantly change Summerland’s core area. The agreement, signed on Thursday, is the result of 18 months of effort. While the groundbreaking is still several months away, there is still much to be done before construction can begin. A target date of February 2013 has been set for the groundbreaking for the first building and the developers do not expect the work will be completed until early in 2014. With an estimated value of $90 to $120 million, the Wharton Street project is significant in its cost and in its scope. The project calls for a series of large buildings with residential, commercial and professional spaces. The development will provide new spaces for the Summerland Museum and the Summerland branch of the Okanagan Regional Library. These new spaces are badly needed as both facilities are operating out of cramped buildings at present. The need for a larger library and museum has been evident for many years. While expanding these facilities will help the community, the biggest improvements from Wharton Street will come when residential units in the building are occupied. Adding population growth to the core of the community simply makes sense. As people move in and near the downtown area, there is a resulting vibrancy. At present, Summerland’s downtown is quiet and deserted after business hours. This will change once people are living in the area. With more activity, there is a potential benefit for the businesses already present in Summerland’s downtown area. And if that happens, it would be a badly needed boost for the local economy.

When three Summerlanders each put their names forward to represent their political parties in the 2013 provincial election, it is time to take notice. They are showing a willingness to get involved and to make a positive difference locally and provincially. This level of commitment is impressive. We urge others to get involved if they see a need around them.

Time for investment in forests VICTORIA – The B.C. government’s emergency committee on timber supply has produced its report, but it leaves many of the big questions unanswered. Can the Burns Lake sawmill, destroyed by fire last winter, be given enough timber to rebuild? It’s likely, committee members concluded, if areas that are currently considered “marginally economic” are Tom Fletcher harvested. With nearly half the pine in that region dead from beetle infestation, and much of the better timber already cut, that means harvesting areas that would produce only about two thirds of the volume that is currently considered economical to log. Will eight more sawmills have to close once the beetle-killed timber becomes too degraded to cut in the next few years? Committee members hold out hope that extending the cut to less economic timber stands can reduce this impact as well. But with the current cut far above historical levels to maximize beetle-kill harvest, some industry contraction seems inevitable. All this depends on adequate forest inventory and investment in replanting, fertilizing and provision of additional roads and power lines that would allow access to timber and potential bioenergy development. And that is where the political fight lies ahead. The timber supply committee

delivered a unanimous report, despite the harsh divisions between the B.C. Liberal and NDP members who serve on it. NDP forest critic Norm Macdonald, vice chair of the committee, agreed it did good work during the seven months it has toured affected areas of the B.C. Interior. But he said the roots of the problem go back a decade, to when the B.C. Liberals started reducing support for forest health just as the beetle epidemic was spreading.

the newly amalgamated forests, lands and natural resource operations ministry, points to the urgent efforts to upgrade the government’s detailed picture of the state of the forests, so it can consider new cutting, planting and fertilizing efforts. But there’s no denying that he came to the job in a crisis that will take more spending in the future, and he will have a hard time finding it as Finance Minister Kevin Falcon looks to balance the books for the 2013 election.

Will eight more sawmills have to close once the beetle-killed timber becomes too degraded to cut in the next few years? Ten years ago the government removed the obligation for the province to reforest areas affected by disease and fire. This was not only at the peak of the epidemic, it was one year before devastating wildfires raced through the Interior in the summer of 2003. “In 2002, the government removed its obligation to replant those areas, and cut the budget by 90 per cent,” Macdonald told me. “The three-year budget that’s in front of us is keeping on the downward slide, and it’s not what people in communities are saying is the answer. So that has to change.” The opposition, the auditor general and various forest experts have been blasting the government for the degraded state of the timber inventory, at a time when environmental changes have been sweeping. Steve Thomson, minister of

If nothing else, the pine beetle epidemic has forced the B.C. government to consider some of the intensive forest management that we hear about in Scandinavia, one of those places that supplies B.C. with wood furniture. And it has prompted renewed interest in offering new forest tenures to aboriginal communities with unresolved resource claims. Under current law, the government can only direct award new forest tenures to aboriginal communities. So part of the committee’s proposed solution is to “expedite negotiations” with the Burns Lake First Nations to give them a chance to harvest some of the marginally economic forest areas that remain. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews. com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca.

culls A community branding exercise could be one of the most positive things to happen in Summerland, provided the groups involved act on the recommendations from the report. Only a few years ago, a meeting and brainstorming session on community branding resulted in a lot of good ideas presented but little if any action taken afterward. This time, the exercise will come at a cost of $10,000. If the recommendations are simply received and filed with no action taken, the result will be a waste of time and money.

THE EARLY YEARS

Comin’ through

Pleasure boating on Okanagan Lake has always been popular, even in the 1920s, but when the SS Sicamous headed for the Summerland wharves, smaller boats were quick to get out of her way. The Sicamous was a passenger steam ship with room for 310 passengers and 900 tonnes of cargo and it must have been a thrill to buzz around her in a little motor boat. Many Summerland residents made it an evening ritual to be at the dock when she came in, whether to collect mail, meet friends or just watch the majestic “floating palace” come and go.

Grant funding awarded Museum and arts council receive money Two Summerland organizations are among five from the region which have been awarded gaming grants.

The grants, announced last week, include $22,500 to the Summerland Community Arts Council and $15,000 to the Summerland Museum and Heritage Society. Three Penticton

organizations also received money. The Penticton Minor Baseball Association received $9,360, the Penticton Aquatic Association received $13,200 and the Penticton Minor

Lacrosse Association received $10,850. Throughout the province, $3,690,470 will be distributed to 146 organizations. “From preserving our local history to giving tomorrow’s

Olympic champions a club and place to practice their skills, these grants make a difference to the people who enjoy participating in local sports and culture,” said MLA Bill Barisoff.

Dry conditions lead to campfire ban As the fire risk increases, the municipality and the Kamloops Fire Centre have both issued campfire bans in the area. Both bans took effect on Friday, Aug. 17 at noon. The bans are in place as the fire danger rating is high throughout the Kamloops Fire Centre, with a few pockets where the danger rating is extreme. Those violating the Kamloops Fire Centre’s ban may be

issued a ticket for up to $345 and anyone causing a wildfire through arson or recklessness may face up to $1 million in fines and three years in prison and will be held accountable for associated fire costs. Gas or propane stoves and briquettes are not affected by the ban. The fire ban is in place in the Lillooet, Kamloops, Salmon Arm, Merrit, Vernon and Penticton Fire Zones.

Summerland is in the Penticton Fire Zone. A wildfire was burning near Osprey Lake about 35 kilometres west of Summerland at press time this week. The 10-hectare fire appears to have been caused by an earlier lightning strike, smouldering underground in tree roots until it broke out during the hot and dry conditions Sunday. The Osprey Lake fire was being

fought by about 25 fire fighters as well as helicopters and an air tanker. It was located in a remote area off the Summerland to Princeton Road, away from

structures and camping areas. It was one of about 50 new fires in B.C. over the hot weekend, and the largest of 10 in the Kamloops zone.

Ziebarth seeks to represent Liberals Businessman and civic volunteer Mark Ziebarth of Summerland is seeking the nomination for the B.C. Liberal Party in the riding of Penticton. He declared his candidacy at a family picnic attended by friends and supporters Wednesday evening.

Ziebarth wants to help build the economic strength of British Columbia for coming generations. “I am a fiscal and financial conservative. I believe the best, highest and most important role of an MLA is to strengthen the economic health of the

province. Everything good stems from a good economy.” Without a healthy economy, “there’s no money to pay for the hospitals, health care and roads.” Ziebarth is president of Freemark Information Services, an advisory and consulting business. He

is currently executive vicepresident of ABK Restoration Serv i c e s and an Mark instructor at the Ziebarth Okanagan College School

of Business. From 2003 to 2009 he was located at Penticton as president and chief executive at Bongarde Media. Now a Canadian citizen, he is a graduate of George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Active in business, civic, church and pol-

itical organizations in the South Okanagan, he was named Business Leader of the Year in 2008 by the Penticton and Wine Country Chamber of Commerce. He is co-chairman of the Penticton B.C. Liberal Riding Association’s Free Enterprise Friday event series,

and is secretary of the association. He is chairman of the Penticton Mayor ’s Advisory Council for the South Okanagan Events Centre, and board treasurer of the South Okanagan Medical Foundation. He and his wife Julia have four children.

to rise each year. We need more well paying jobs to support families in the region.” Denesiuk said the riding and the province need well-paying jobs for families and good stewardship of resources. During her time on the Summerland School Board and later the OkanaganSkaha School Board, Denesiuk served as a trustee and later as board chair. She also served as the president of the B.C. School Trustees’ Association. In addition, over the past 32 years she has been a partner with her husband Bob in a small construction company. She is also active in community service and volunteer work. D e n e s i u k ’ s announcement, on her 35th wedding anniversary, comes one day after MLA Bill Barisoff announced he would not run in the 2013 provincial election. Barisoff was first elected to the legislature in 1996. He has been the Speaker of the House since 2005. The Penticton riding Liberals are expected to nominate their candidate Oct. 20 at the Ramada.

Finnis makes bid for NDP candidacy A former municipal councillor and federal New Democratic Party candidate is vying for the opportunity to be the party’s candidate for this riding in next year ’s provincial election. While the riding of Penticton, which includes Summerland, has been a Liberal riding since the 2001 provincial election, David Finnis believes the New Democrats are poised to make a strong showing. “The current polls are quite encouraging,” he said. “We are seeing a terrific

shift.” He said part of the reason for the increasing popularity of the party David is a disFinnis satisfaction with the existing provincial government.

No shortage of water despite heat by John Arendt Summerland still has plenty of water

in its reservoirs this year, despite the hot weather since midJuly.

Scott Lee, director of water operations for the municipality said Thirsk Lake

stopped spilling on July 14. The water level at Garnett Lake was deliberately kept

low enough to prevent the reservoir from spilling. All other lakes in Summerland’s water storage system are continuing to spill. “It speaks to the groundwater resurgence,” he said. A few years ago, dry conditions had resulted in lower groundwater levels. Lee said he does not anticipate increased water restrictions in

the near future. “I don’t see us heading into Stage 2 any time soon,” he said. Summerland has a series of watering restrictions for domestic users. Under Stage 1 restrictions, watering lawns and gardens is permitted three times a week. Increased restrictions will limit the number of times a

residential water user can irrigate. Lee said the ample water level is partly the result of cool, wet weather in spring and partly the result of better water conservation measures in the community. In addition to a strong water supply, Lee said the quality of water is good. The last water quality advisory was on June 23, 2011.

Input sought on proposed electoral boundary changes The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for British Columbia will hold public hearings so residents can share their views on the new federal electoral map it recently proposed. The commission’s proposal focuses on the creation of six new electoral dis-

tricts as a result of the increase in the province’s population. Every 10 years, commissions readjust the boundaries of federal electoral districts while taking into consideration population numbers, communities of interest or identity, historical patterns and geography. After consul-

This means that whether you run a large company or a one-person homebased business, you walk into the same network of more than 800 businesses, with immediate access to all the benefits that come with a Chamber membership. Local promotion is one of the most important benefits, with members able to rack their brochures or business cards for free at the year-round Visitor Centre, which also runs a Made in Summerland shop highlighting local artists and authors. Free directory and website listings go a long way

to giving businesses an online presence, especially for those who have not yet launched their own websites or social networking pages.

Arlene Fenrich the best ways to grow or improve your business. Nothing is more powerful than personto-person marketing, so every month the Chamber organizes a Business-AfterBusiness networking function, a chance for members to make the kind of professional connections that can improve their own businesses while also strengthening Summerland’s overall business profile. The next Business-AfterBusiness event is scheduled for Sept. 18 at the Summerland Rodeo Grounds. Being a member of the Summerland Chamber also gives businesses access to province-wide benefits through the B.C. Chamber of Commerce. This includes a B.C. Chamber Group Insurance Plan, a unique plan in which policy holders are part of a large pool, helping to keep annual individual premium increases low.

Best of Summerland for sister city tour Five students and two adults from Summerland’s sister city of Toyokoro, Japan, got the chance to experience a beautiful Okanagan summer last week. The visitors included students aged 14 and 15 as well as a math teacher and the assistant manager from the Toyokoro Board of Education. They were each hosted by a Summerland family and were able to experience typical Canadian family life, exposure to English language, new food and Canadian culture. Sister City chairperson Darlene Forsdick said, “Host families played a major role in making this visit the success it was.” “They opened their homes and their

hearts in making our visitors a part of their families.” Residents may have noticed the visitors around town and on the beaches as they explored much of what Summerland has to offer. Activities included a climb to the top of Giant’s Head, a tour of the new RCMP station, a round of golf at Sumac Ridge, a ride on the KVR steam train, visits to Adams Bird Sanctuary and Summerland Sweets, and a round of shopping in Summerland’s downtown. The visit concluded with a sayonara (farewell) party at Peach Orchard Beach where the delegation honoured those present with a traditional Japanese dance. At the farewell

party, repeat host family parent Shelly Parker said, “Put us down to host again next time. This is such a great experience.” Visits between Summerland and Toyokoro take place in alternating years with Summerland planning a visit to Japan in September of 2013. There are already several Summerland names on the list for the next trip. The Sister City Society is a Committee of the District of Summerland. Anyone interested in finding out more can visit summerland.ca/residents/ SisterCity.aspx. If you’re interested in applying to host a student two years from now, contact Forsdick at 250-4949489.

Church assembles school kits Donations accepted until early October Members of Summerland United Church’s Mission and Service Committee attended a recent barbecue dinner at Marilyn and John Topham’s home to kick-off their annual school bag campaign. Offerings at the Sunday morning service along with subsequent generous donations were sufficient to fill 307 bags with items needed by underprivileged children in selected countries. Donations are welcomed and will still be received until the first week of October. The school bags will then be taken to the Ten Thousand Villages Store in Pen-

ticton for transport to the Mennonite Central Committee’s warehouse facility in Abbotsford to await shipping to this year ’s designated countries. Many people have been involved in cutting the cloth, sewing the seams, and filling the bags with scribblers, pencils, erasers and rulers. In the past five years, more than 1,000 school kits have been sent from Summerland through the Mennonite Central Committee to many developing countries. Since February, MCC has sent such school kits to Zambia, Lebanon and Jordan. This fall, school kits will be sent to the Ukraine/Crimea, Bosnia and Mozambique.

Artist in residence Janice Cornett-Ching, one of the participating artists in residence at the Summerland Waterfront Resort, shows some of her work. Throughout this summer, artists have displayed their work and have held workshops.

Hotel brings artists in residence Artists in residence have been present at the Summerland Waterfront Resort during the summer. Lisa Jaager of the resort said the artists have displayed their work and have also held workshops or instruction ses-

sions. The workshops have included sand sculpture as well as more traditional art forms. Jaager said the arts workshops are presented to hotel guests but open to anyone.

“This brings arts and culture directly to the front lobby,” she said. Janice CornettChing, one of the participating artists, had an exhibit set up at the resort hotel Aug. 6 to 10. She also has had

her exhibit since Monday Aug. 20, continuing to Friday, Aug. 24. with art instruction twice a day while the exhibit was in place. From Aug. 20 to 24, she will have art instruction from 10:30 a.m. to noon and from

1:30 to 3 p.m. She said the instruction has been worthwhile since she is able to introduce people of all ages to art. “It’s so neat to teach people things they didn’t know about so far,” she said.

Mercy Tech Mission has returned from southern Africa, and according to founder and director Rick Cogbill, they are seeing lasting results from their efforts. “Our goal is to fight poverty worldwide by passing on our skills to others, so that they can get good jobs, and thereby provide for their families. This was my fourth trip to Mozambique, and the progress is phenomenal. Our maintenance shop project is well underway, and the students from our training programs are already using their new-found skills on a daily basis.” Cogbill was in Mozambique for the months of April and May of this year, and was joined by local Summerlander and Rotarian John Topham for the month of May. “John organized a woodworking training project centered around a wood lathe. The products made on this machine will not only be useful in the homes and the primary schools of that area, but also could be sold to the public, providing another source of income to these wonderful, but impoverished people.” Although the donated wood lathe was shipped months ahead of the Mercy Tech trip, it became bogged down in customs and import issues, and didn’t arrive at the mission base in time to be used.

“But it’s now delivered and set up, and John is already making plans to return to pick up where he left off with his woodworking students.” Other Summerland residents who have travelled to Africa with Mercy Tech Mission include builder Bob Denesiuk, and Cogbill’s daughter Laura. “These visits to rural Africa are lifechanging,” Cogbill said. “Everyone who has gone has expressed interest in

Those requests, along with the number of new volunteers stepping forward to help others in need, show that Mercy Tech Mission is experiencing a time of growth. The rural people in Mozambique are desperate for knowledge, often making great sacrifices to attend the training times. “They’ll travel for hours just to be there when our classes start.” Cogbill appreciates the interest and support he has received

“Our goal is to fight poverty worldwide by passing on our skills to others, so that they can get good jobs, and thereby provide for their families.” Rick Cogbill returning. They see how much the people appreciate it when someone comes to share what they know, with no strings attached.” Already plans are under way for a fifth trip, possibly in March of 2013. “Bob and I want to finish the maintenance shop,” Cogbill said. “It will become the center for our automotive training in that area.” Mercy Tech is also investigating other locations where their skills training programs can be utilized. “We will continue at our current site in Mozambique as long as we are useful there, but already other organizations are asking us to consider working with them.”

from Summerland and beyond. “Sometimes we think it’s ‘other people’ who will change the world, but it’s not true; we can all make a difference. Whether through Mercy Tech, a service club, or a local church, the main thing is that we do something. Let’s face it, we don’t choose where we’re born; it could just as easily be us growing up in the African bush. The least we can do is give something back and change a life, or even a whole community.” For more information on Mercy Tech Mission and their projects, please visit their website at www. mercytechmission. com.

Extra term to see projects through When I put my name forward to run in the 2005 provincial general election, I did so with the intent that if successfully reelected it would serve as my final term in public office. However, as the 2009 writ date fast approached, many important projects for our region that had been in progress for, in some cases, many years, were close to becoming a reality but in a majority of cases had yet to reach the ground breaking stage. Specifically in Penticton both the Okanagan College (now Jim Pattison) center for excellence and the Penticton pool project were not yet underway. In Summerland an important project to upgrade the gateway entrance to the community along with improved lighting and sidewalks was in a similar circumstance. Peachland also had a visionary and

important project to help transform the waterfront and expand the public walkway. In the south end of the valley Okanagan Falls was very close but still yet to receive final funding approval for the important sewer expansion and relocation project and the Skaha Bluffs Provincial park was still only an idea in progress at that point. The final factor also on my mind at that point was the pending status of the West Bench water system upgrades that also has the longterm potential to help resolve outstanding issues with the Sage Mesa water system. With so many important pending projects on the go I made the decision to run in the 2009 provincial general election that unfortunately became the nastiest of my entire political career. It was a great honour to be re-elected

in 2009 and, as it would turn out, the Province’s rapidly deteriorating financial situation and fragile global economic environment made it incredibly difficult to ensure that those projects moved forward. The Okanagan College project in particular came very close to not reaching the ground-breaking stage. Fortunately today those projects are all a reality and citizens are enjoying the benefits that will be an important legacy for our future in our amazing part of the province. I would also like to make it clear that none of these projects move forward without a team of people who are able to work together on behalf of the communities we collectively represent. If there is any one point I would like to stress in politics, in government and in life is that people can do great things

VICTORIA VIEWS

Bill Barisoff when they work together and the amazing quality of life we enjoy here in the South Okanagan is greatly related to the calibre of people who live here. There also comes a time when it must come to an end and the torch must be passed on to the next generation of leaders who share the same passion to make a difference in the communities we serve. I have enjoyed an incredible journey in my time as a Member of the Legislative assembly and watching the Okanagan transform over the

past 16 years has been a great honour to be a part of it. In roughly eight months British Columbia will have one of the most important elections for the future of the province in recent memory and I would like to announce officially that my name will not be on the ballot this time around. I have never been one for staging press conferences or issuing media releases and preferred to share this information directly with you in my weekly report. There are still many important projects I am currently working on and my

weekly reports will continue. In some of those weekly reports I will also pass on my own concerns facing the

future of our amazing region and this great province. Bill Barisoff is MLA for the riding of Penticton.

Tennis time

Carla McLeod, Special to the Summerland Review

The Ladies Team Tennis Tournament was held at the tennis courts this past weekend. A total of 32 women from the Thompson Okanagan region participated.

People make the magic As many of you know I was great friends and a colleague of Harold Simpson who passed away while I was living in Australia in 2005. Harold was one of those amazing people who were always involved and helping our community. How appropriate it was to name the Youth Centre after him. Well, this year we have lost two people that I am honoured to say were also my friends and did so much for Summerland.

Enid Maynard was a real character who was always an advocate for the planting and preservation of trees in our area. For many years Enid would meet regularly with our department to encourage strategies for the planting of trees in Summerland. She would apply for grants and generously donated her own money to buy new trees for our different projects. Unfortunately in the last few years Enid’s health had deteriorated and she passed away in June.

LEISURE TIMES

Dale MacDonald But true to her word the “Tree Lady” as many of us knew her left in her will $10,000.00 for the planting of trees in Summerland which

will be a legacy for years to come. Another character, who not only I knew but most of Summerland did as well, was John Tamblyn. A former principal at Summerland Secondary School, John didn’t let retirement slow him down one bit. His involvement with the Summerland Kiwanis was legendary and the projects he initiated and supported are too numerous to mention. I will miss his visits to my office and the invites to speak at Kiwanis meetings

SCOREBOARD

where he and Jerry Hallquist used to heckle me and then with big laughs solve the politics of the day. People like Enid and John were part of the magic of living here in Summerland and will certainly be missed. This weekend Ironman takes over the South Okanagan but don’t forget the September long weekend when the exciting local Summerland Orca Kids of Steel and Sprint Triathlon takes place. Dale MacDonald is Summerland’s recreation director.

Eight from Summerland in Ironman Summerland will be represented by eight triathletes in the 2012 Subaru Ironman Canada on Sunday. Three have taken part in the event in the past. They are Patrick Amundsen, 58; Andrew Burden, 34; and Sophie Chadwick, 24. Also entered this year are Jillian Abney, 20; France Burke, 46; Derek Carnell, 55;

Neil Crofts, 50; and Lauren Currie, 28. The race, which starts and ends at the Okanagan Lakeshore in Penticton, consists of a 3.8-kilometre (2.4-mile) swim, a 180-kilometre (112mile) bike ride through Osoyoos and Keremeos and a 42-kilometre (26.2mile) run on the east side of Skaha Lake. The 30th annual race has drawn 2,800

competitors from more than 25 countries and 44 U.S. states. They will have 17 hours to complete the course and earn the title of Ironman. The race begins at 7 a.m. west of the Lakeside Resort when the swimmers enter the water in a mass start. As they leave the water, they get on their bikes and pedal south along Lakeside

Hearing Clinic

Road and Highway 97, turning west at Osoyoos for the climb up Richter Pass. They return by way of another pass at Yellow Lake on Highway 3A. From the Okanagan Lake transition area they set out again on foot to complete a full marathon to Okanagan Falls and back. The course closes at midnight. Summerland resi-

dents are among the 4,000 volunteers who help put on the race. Volunteers and other spectators can watch for the Summerland triathletes and cheer them on. Here are their numbers: Abney, 2065; Amundsen, 1906; Burden 458; Burke 2765; Carnell, 1905; Chadwick, 2066; Crofts, 1742 and Currie, 2132.
