Welcoming the future through the past was the highlight of Tuesday’s official unveiling of the Summerland roadside marker in Trout Creek. In 1939 two fieldstone cairns were erected at the original north and south entrances to Summerland by lumber executive John (Jack) McDonald of New Westminster. The Lower Mainland resident fell in love with the region during regular visits to the area with his family and decided to express his appreciation through the structures. Some time ago the Summerland Heritage Advisory Commission took on the $10,000 project to restore the two markers. Included in the work was moving the one in Trout Creek about one kilometre north of its original location where it had been barely visible to motorists. A special crane was used to lift the 15,000-pound rock structure to the Trout Creek tourist pullout. Funding for the work was supplied largely through the generosity of the Summerfair Shopping Centre, owned by John McDonald’s grandson Bruce McDonald, the Amm families and other donors. Bruce McDonald and Jack Amm, first cousin to the lumber executive, were at Tuesday’s ceremonies. The second marker is still located on Bentley Road, which until 1956 served as the old highway and the northern entrance into Summerland. The markers originally featured two attractive appleshaped signs on each side: one

The stone marker was one of two that were erected in 1939 welcoming visitors to Summerland through the generosity of Jack McDonad, Bruce’s grandfather.

reading Welcome to Summerland, and the other reading Good Luck. Replicas of the signs were created locally and installed earlier this month. The restoration work was particularly important to Bruce

McDonald. “First of all this is simply nice to see something that I thought was gone and to have a little bit of history restored,” he said. “It is also wonderful to have this family connection and even though I don’t live here I still

feel like a part of the community and this re-inforces that.” Summerland Mayor Janice Perrino also spoke to the small gathering saying the community should never forget the importance of the past as they move ahead to the future.

Scammers target local seniors Scam artists calling seniors for money by John Arendt Scams aimed at the elderly continue to target Summerland residents. Cpl. Richard Schumacher of the Summerland RCMP detachment said variants on the grandparent scam con-

tinue to circulate in the community. The caller claims to be the target’s grandchild who needs money to cover bail costs following an impaired driving arrest. A variant of this call, which has targeted several Summerland residents, originates from a penitentiary in Louisiana where prisoners have been mak-

ing collect calls asking for money. Schumacher urges residents not to accept a collect call from an unknown caller. The scams continue to have some success. Earlier this month, an 84-year-old West Kelowna woman was taken for $1,500 in the grandparent scam. Other scam attempts

circulating in Summerland include requests to send in money in order to claim a large deposit and a mystery shopper scam. Under the mystery shopper scam, the target receives an unsolicited letter detailing how to earn extra money as a mystery shopper. The letter also contains a cheque and a list of how it is to be distributed. However, the

cheque is counterfeit and the victim who deposits it and then sends money to others on the list would lose out. This scam also has been reported in the Okanagan Valley earlier this month. Information on frauds and scams is available through the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at w w w. a n t i f r a u d c e n t r e centreantifraude.ca.

Summerland house prices drop by John Arendt For home buyers looking to get into the Summerland market, May was a good month as prices were considerably lower than a year ago. According to statistics from the South Okanagan Real Estate Board, the average price of a single family residential home in Summerland

was $407,960 in May, down from $487,500 in the same month of 2012. “Now is a good time to buy,” said Judy Klassen, president of the real estate board. “There is still a good selection of properties in the South Okanagan and great opportunities to buy at a great price — especially while interest rates remain

at historic lows.” There were a total of 22 property sales in Summerland in May, compared with 24 in the same month a year ago. While Summerland’s average price showed a significant decrease, selling prices in Naramata, Keremeos, Oliver and Princeton were higher than they were a year ago.

Across the entire board area however, prices dropped from an average selling price of $335,001 in May, 2012 to an average of $298,499 last month. Klassen said home sellers should not take the numbers as an indication of a sluggish market. Instead, she said the drop represents a one-time price decrease.

She said the board expects an increase of one to two per cent over the course of the year. Across the region, houses sold in May were on the market an average of 130 days. A year ago, the average house took 132 days to sell. “As long as you price your house well, you will sell,” Klassen said.

POLICE REPORT Close call for officer

A Summerland RCMP officer had to dive into a ditch to save himself from being hit on a traffic stop on June 12 at 10:55 p.m. near Sunoka Beach on Highway 97. The officer had one vehicle stopped and was returning to his police cruiser when a vehicle approaching from behind almost struck the RCMP’s vehicle. The officer got into his car and found the driver who nearly struck him pulled over. The female driver was found with open liquor, but was not drunk and was issued tickets for possession of open liquor and failing to move over for a police vehicle. The vehicle was impounded because it wasn’t road worthy. RCMP remind that if any emergency vehicle is stopped with lights flashing it is the law that approaching drivers must slow down to 70 kilometres per hour, or 20 less than the speed limit if 60 km/hr or less, and change to the other lane if possible.

Fight at the Legion

On June 15 at 11:44 p.m. a man walking by the Legion kicked the gate starting an argument that led into a fight where the victim received punches to the head. The man was charged with assault, mischief and uttering threats after being aggressive and not cooperating with RCMP.

Motor vehicle accident

A driver of a Toyota Camry was ticketed with failing to yield after attempting a left hand turn northbound onto Highway 97 at Trout Creek. The driver was found unconscious and taken to hospital after being struck by a pickup.

Carla McLeod/Special to the Summerland Review

The Kettle Valley Steam Railway held their fourth annual charity run for the Agur Lake Camp Society on Sunday. Ridership was by donation, with all proceeds going to the camp. Neil Andrews with the KVSR, helps Keith Dixon to board the train, as Beth Bonten looks on. Both of these non profit organizations rely on volunteers for their continued success. If anyone is interested in helping out they can go to the websites for information, www.kettlevalleyrail.org and www.agurlakecamp.ca

When you purchase real property, do you realize that the Contract of Purchase and Sale you are going to sign is "THE" document on which any lawsuit would be based. All of the terms of the deal must be written in that contract, including any addendums to it, or they will have no effect. The only alterations or modifications allowed to the "Contract" are those which both parties agree to. One party cannot decide later to unilaterally change those terms. This happens most often when the property is not quite completed and the Purchaser wants to add a non-statutory holdback or amendment. In British Columbia our Land Title Conveyance practice is based on a system of Lawyer's promises called undertakings. The Vendor's Lawyer sends the executed transfer documents to the Purchaser's Lawyer on his or her undertaking not to deal with the documents until the purchase price can be paid out. Without these promises the Transfer system would be very complex and slow. The unfortunate side to this system is that it must have certainty. The Vendor's Lawyer must know that the full amount of the proceeds will be available upon registration. It goes without saying then that the Purchaser's Lawyer cannot unilaterally withhold money from the Vendor, even if the Vendor has failed to perform one or more of the terms required in the "Interim Agreement". It may not seem right to the Purchaser, but it is the system we have to deal with.

our pick

The cost of housing Housing prices in Summerland and in much of the South Okanagan are considerably lower than they were a year ago. According to the latest figures listed by the South Okanagan Real Estate Board, the average price of a single family residential home in Summerland was $407,960 in May. In the same month in 2012, the average price was $487,500. Similar trends can be seen in some but not all communities in the area. Overall, the average price is noticeably lower than it was a year earlier. While declining values are bad news for those looking to sell a home, there is also a positive side to the latest numbers. Lower prices mean more affordable housing, especially for working people who are not in high-paying professional fields. Unless our community has some affordable housing, it will be difficult for any business to attract and retain employees. The cost of living becomes a factor. Houses are selling, but the price point determines who is able to buy. Already there are some who work in Summerland but live in Penticton or beyond because they are unable to afford to get into the housing market here. Even with the decrease in housing prices, properties in Summerland remain higher than in much of the rest of the region. While some properties will sell for considerably less than the average price, buying or even renting here remains costly. Furthermore, representatives of the South Okanagan Real Estate Board say the latest figures are simply an anomaly, not an indication of a longer trend. They expect prices in the region to increase slightly over the coming year. The real estate market will have an impact on how Summerland’s future will play out.

Running a marathon is a significant undertaking, as any runner can attest. Running a kilometre or two is much more manageable. For the past two months, students at Giant’s Head Elementary School have been working to run a marathon distance, a kilometre at a time. If these students continue this level of activity in the future, they will be able to develop habits for lifelong fitness.

What ails the NDP? Plenty VICTORIA – After 34 NDP MLAs were sworn in to continue a stretch of opposition that will reach at least 16 years, leader Adrian Dix took a few questions about his future. The party’s provincial council will meet June 21 to set the terms of reference for a review of the party’s dismal election performance, Dix told reporters. He repeated Tom Fletcher that his performance won’t be spared, and ticked off some conventional wisdom about the NDP campaign. Dix mentioned the alleged lack of “negative” ads, the local campaigns (read candidates), the decreasing reliability of polls and, when pressed, his surprise decision to come out against the proposed twinning of the TransMountain oil pipeline. Like last week’s hysteria over a tiny leak in that pipeline, these are great sound bites for the short attention spans of the modern media. But they don’t explain much. This all-powerful NDP provincial council is a case in point. A glimpse into its inner workings was provided by a summary of an NDP policy development workshop called “Imagine Our Future” that was leaked by the B.C. Liberals in the final days of the campaign. The workshop took place in November 2010, coincidentally at the same provincial coun-

cil meeting where the revolt against former leader Carole James tumbled into the open. While 13 caucus members were knifing their leader for reasons they still can’t or won’t articulate in public — a glaring problem in itself — the backroom policy brainstorm revealed a deeper malaise. Among the “dream tree” notions put forward in the workshop was “free” post-secondary tuition and public transit, along with raising wages and lowering fees for daycare. This isn’t a dream tree, it’s a money tree. Remember, this is the NDP’s ruling body, not a high school “social justice” class or an Occupy Vancouver squat. Showing a glimmer of adult supervision, the workshop table on “equitable tax policy” even identified the problem. Its first recommendation: “Increase our economic and financial literacy to gain credibility.” The “public ownership” table really got radical. Scrap public-private partnerships, the basis of most government construction today. “Nationalize” independent power projects, in the Venezuelan style of state seizure of private assets. And perhaps most incredibly, tear up the trade agreement between Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. that harmonizes transport truck regulations and so forth. In the real world, the four western premiers met this week in Winnipeg. And the threeprovince project now called “New West Partnership” will

continue to dismantle archaic inter-provincial barriers. Why would the NDP be secretly against that? Because it’s also a “labour mobility” agreement. This harkens back to a supposed golden age in Canada, when two corporate titans shared the beer business, producing identical bland lager from identical factories in identical stubby bottles. Inter-provincial trade in these stubbies was strictly forbidden, requiring each province to have a big unionized brewery to make uniformly bad beer for the proletariat. This is the power of a monopoly union. And because of it, this was how governments tried to “create jobs.” It’s a bygone era to which many core NDP supporters stubbornly cling. This explains the party’s revival of a “job protection commissioner” for forestry. Which brings us to the proverbial root cause of the B.C. NDP’s woes. Its largest financial donor is the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, which donated $1.4 million to the party in the past eight years, nosing out the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the Hospital Employees’ Union. Former HEU and BCGEU presidents now sit in the NDP caucus, critics for health and “green” jobs respectively. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

bad apples Once again we are dismayed with the scams which continue to target Summerland residents. Often, these attempts target the most vulnerable. If scams are reported, police may be able to track down those responsible, or at least to notify the public. If those who are targeted say nothing, then the scammers have an easier time trying to bilk others. If you have been targeted by scammers, please speak out.

The Early years

The last day of school

Photo courtesy of the Summerland Museum

Many of us still remember the excitement of the last day of school and the anticipation of enjoying a fun-packed Okanagan summer. This Grade 3 class in 1960 probably experienced similar feelings, but for their teacher, Miss Dale, it was most likely a bittersweet time. This was the last class before her retirement after over 42 years of teaching Summerland children. She was truly a dedicated lady. By the way, if you know any of the students in this photo, please stop by the museum and let us know. And speaking of the last day of school, the board and staff of the Summerland Museum would like to congratulate the 2013 Grads. We wish you a bright future and invite you to come in and visit the past whenever you like.

system, we want to say thank you. During various years, our girls attended public schools, Montessori school and were even a part of the home learners program for one year. In all of their school experiences we were impressed with the very helpful, kind and quality instruction they received. They were challenged, encouraged, listened to and cared for. School staff at all levels made their years memorable and enjoyable. So thank you to administrators, teachers, educational assistants, coaches, support staff, you all play a vital role to make the school run effectively; to make students feel like they matter, prepare them for a life time of learning and encourage them to be a positive influence in our world. Thank you so very much. Bob and Caroline Isaak Summerland

Tourism, conventions benefit region Destruction of black bears unnecessary Dear Editor: We often take for granted the impact tourism and conventions bring to our community and region. This is one occasion, when I want to draw attention to the effects a recent convention had in our community. Earlier this month, more than 600 delegates, from across Canada, and from 17 other nations, attended an Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC) annual convention in Penticton. Many delegates came earlier or remained longer to enjoy Penticton and Summerland, staying in our hotels, dining at our restaurants, shopping at our stores and sampling our local products, especially our wines.

As hosts for the conference, Okanagan College did a phenomenal job of introducing these people to a part of Canada many had not before visited. They left a substantial amount of their dollars behind: an estimate calculated in concert with the Economic Development office suggested about $1 million in economic impact. These delegates left with an appreciation for our region, its natural beauty, our hospitality and our culture. As an honourary co-chair of the fundraising committee, who helped raised $5 million to make the Jim Pattison Centre of Excellence at Okanagan College’s campus a reality, I was especially impressed with the Okanagan College decision

to bring the convention to the Penticton Campus. The very fact the centre is one of the most sustainable in the world was an important determinant in ACCC’s decision to bring the convention to Penticton. The many people, who supported the building and contributed to its construction, thought the Centre of Excellence would have a lasting economic impact on our region and it has demonstrated as much. I draw the readers’ attention to the conference for another reason, this time as the organizer of the Penticton Herald Raise-aReader South Okanagan Program. The ACCC chose to acknowledge the contributions of its keynote speakers, not with the

traditional gifts, but with a donation made in their name to the Kelowna and Penticton Raise a Reader campaigns. Those gifts amounted to $1,500, a substantial contribution when you consider how far those dollars can go, combined with volunteer efforts, in promoting literacy within our communities. Literacy is one of the most significant contributors to the well-being of our region, and I would like to say a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to the ACCC for the dedication it and its member institutions demonstrated by their generosity to the Raise a Reader Program.

Dear Editor: I fear that people have over reacted to the black bear sightings resulting in the unnecessary destruction of these three bears. We need to educate ourselves; these are black bears not grizzlies! “Statistically one  stands more of a risk of being hit by lightening than killed by a black bear.” Direct quote from Black Bears North America.  Black bears are known scavengers;

garbage creating humans must make more intelligent decisions about the storing and disposal of our waste. The killing of these three bears was cruel, uncalled for, unjustified and a very uneducated ignorant decision. They should have been tranquilized and relocated.  The automatic killing of black bears must stop.  Cynthia Kereluk Summerland

Byelection unfair Dear Editor: In the Vancouver Point Grey riding Christy Clark lost her seat in the legislature to David Eby, fairly and squarely. In the Kelowna West riding, Ben Stewart won his seat fairly and squarely. This is what an election is all about, the votes are counted and someone wins or someone loses, that is fair. This byelection in Kelowna is not fair. Ben Stewart is stepping down, not because he is ill, not because he has personal problems, not because he was

arrested for drunk driving. He is stepping down only for political reasons on behalf of the Liberal Party of B.C. Now, because of his politically motivated actions, the taxpayers of B.C. must bear the cost of holding a byelection. A byelection held solely for the purpose of getting Christy elected on behalf of the Liberal Party. Asking the public to change the fact that Christy lost, at the public’s expense, is just not fair.

Supplemen A Special

Tractor safety measures urged in Okanagan valley Dear Editor: What an incredibly beautiful and productive valley we live in! In a relatively short period of time each year, we grow an amazing amount of food and  ornamental plants in the Okanagan Valley.  The number and quality of backyard gardens in Summerland  is increasing as more people nurture an appreciation for food production.  Never before have so many people gone to town with muddy knees and dirt under their fingernails.  Working in the soil with a garden fork

makes us realize the effort it takes to grow food.   Gardening on a small scale helps us remember to value the people who farm for a living. When their neighbours are out gardening,  golfing, boating and playing tennis farmers are often on their tractors mowing, spraying, harvesting and hauling.  Farming is a risky business, not just because of the uncertainties of markets and the unpredictability of weather, but because farm tractors are powerful and potentially dangerous machines.  

SADI

OPEN HOUSE & BBQ For all students entering Grade 6 in the Fall

Extra copies of the 2013 Grad supplement are available at the

13226 North Victoria Rd. Monday - Friday 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Friday, June 21 6 - 9 pm

All parents and guardians are encouraged to come meet the staff, see the centre and sign up for low-cost summer experiences for kids aged 10 - 18.

I know too many farm families who have lost a loved one in a fatal tractor accident.   If you are the driver of a motor vehicle and there is a farm tractor sharing the public  road with you, please be patient.  When a tractor pulls over to the side of the road to allow you to hurry past, the tractor  risks driving onto the soft shoulder of the road and is in serious danger of a rollover. In the event of a tractor rollover, a rollover protective structure (in farm jargon that is ROPS) can help save the  trac-

tor driver. A rollover protective structure may be a  roll bar or it may be a cab structure.   I implore my farmer friends,  use your ROPS.  If you cannot use ROPS because the tree branches are too dense, then please slow down and keep your load low.   If an accident happens and your tractor rolls over, ROPS and a seat belt may save your life. By the way, farm tractors are not amusement park rides.  Please, don’t take a child on one. Let’s be careful out there. Jan Carlson Summerland

Honour system shameful for politicians

Dear Editor: Mr. Fletcher is to be applauded for his current column in this week’s edition of your newspaper. The notion of an “honour system” for politicians’ expense claims is the oxymoron of the century. It is shameful and an embarrassment. Gordon M. Clark Summerland

Summerland Review Thursday, June 20, 2013

Summerland a leader in environmental protection Summerland is taking leadership in its efforts to protect and manage biodiversity, a report prepared by the South Okanagan Similkameen Conservation Program states. “Summerland is providing leadership to the whole regional district,” said program manager Bryn White. In a recent report, Keeping Nature in our Future: A biodiversity strategy, Summerland was commended for its efforts to address areas of high conservation value within the community. “With 67 per cent of Summerland’s land base containing ecosystems ranked high or very high in importance for conservation, Summerland plays an important role in shaping

the future for biodiversity in the South Okanagan-Similkameen,” she said. Efforts are being made to protect these ecosystems by updating Development Permit Areas and strengthening associated bylaws to support protection of streamside vegetation, encouraging cluster development and planning to manage and control drainage, sediment and erosion. The community has 220 hectares of relatively natural parks, including Giant’s Head Mountain, land on Conkle Mountain and other areas. A challenge, she said, is to manage land uses since some uses are in conflict with others. In the past, conflicts have arisen

between hikers and equestrians and users of motorized vehicles on trails in the area. “There’s room for everyone to pursue their interests,” she said. Elsewhere, concerns have been raised about mud bogging in sensitive areas and near the community’s reservoirs. Mayor Janice Perrino said there are positive steps which have been taken by individuals in Summerland. These include choosing to voluntarily care for lands and setting aside sensitive areas on their properties for nature. “We just don’t do enough to celebrate and recognize those people, and we need to,” Perrino said.

Canada Day celebrations are starting to shape up for Summerland with the Royal Canadian Legion branch 22 planning events for Monday, July 1. Building on last year’s success, the Legion has expanded entertainment in the park from 10:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Performers will include several bands, pianists, guitar players and singers. Many of these acts were finalists in the recent Summerland’s Got Talent competition said organizers. As well as adding to the live music acts will be an

improved sound system. The flag-raising ceremony will take place at 11 a.m., followed by serving of a special Canada Day cake, ice cream and a barbecue. All the food is free, but donations are gratefully accepted to help defray the costs. Traditional picnic games with prizes will be hosted by the Summerland Girl Guides and SADI will have face painters for the kids. Other events are still being planned and will be announced next week. Organizers remind

those who plan on attending Canada Day events to bring their own chairs as seating is very limited. A complete schedule to the entertainment for Canada Day will be available at www.SummerlandLegion.ca.

60 years of service

Since 1953, Glenys Clark has been an active volunteer with the Summerland Health Care Auxiliary. In her first years as a volunteer, she helped to raise funds by standing on street corners selling tags and working with catering and banquet operations. She later supported the decision to open the first thrift shop in Summerland. She has been president for two terms, worked on pricing crews and supervised candy stripers. Clark continues to work at the counter in the thrift shop every Thursday afternoon and has been sorting buttons to sell at the shop for as long as she can remember. Above Summerland Health Care Auxiliary president Berit Hack presents Clark, left, with a pin to mark 60 years of involvement with the auxiliary. At right is Mayor Janice Perrino.

Image is everything The South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation is officially launching an equipment campaign on June 20 for the Imaging Department at Penticton Regional Hospital (PRH). Brochures for the campaign will be in every mailbox this week. The goal is to raise $1.5 million to change the three X-Ray rooms along with a portable machine used for the Emergency Department from outdated X-Ray cassette equipment into state of the art X-Ray Digital Radiography. Used on practically every part of the body and on patients of all ages, whether diagnosing a trauma injury, a chest infection or a cancer, X-Ray equipment is the most widely used diagnostic device recommended by doctors. In fact, more than 40,000 patients had X-Rays from all over the region and that number is a four per cent increase from the year before. “While X-Ray equipment is available in several of the communities served by PRH, many patients require further treatment and additional X-Rays are required. Providing the digital radiography will be a huge improvement for the patients”, said South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation chair, Jane Drapeau. Digital Radiography is a form of X-Ray imaging where digital X-Ray sensors are used instead of the traditional cassettes. Similar to a digital camera, this technology uses a digital image capturing device. This gives the advantage of an immediate image preview and the elimination of costly time intensive cassette processing steps. Digital has the ability to apply

special image processing techniques that enhance overall display of the image and is fast, with the least amount of radiation. The campaign, called Image is Everything will be chaired by long time board member Mark Ziebarth. “X-Ray digital radiography provides increased image quality, reduced radiation and allows for faster, more efficient diagnosis of diseases and injuries,” said Ziebarth. When asked about the future hospital Patient Care Tower expansion, Ziebarth explained, “this won’t affect the future expansion project, all of the new X-Ray equipment will stay in its current location at PRH and be used for many years to come.” The South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation’s executive director, Janice Perrino said, “because of the urgent need to replace this equipment, we will begin construction in the fall on one room and hopefully with more funds raised over the Christmas season and through the winter, the hospital will be able to complete the other two rooms and portable machine in the spring of 2014”. The public is invited to attend the Image is Everything campaign launch on June 20 from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the South entrance of Penticton Regional Hospital. Join them for cake, coffee and tours of the department along with a display of the Portable machine they hope to purchase. For more information and to make donations, contact the SOS Medical Foundation office at 250 492 9027 or on the website at sosmedicalfoundation.com.

Orchardists demanding stability with ag portfolio

by Richard Rolke Black Press O k a n a g a n orchardists are frustrated about B.C.’s revolving door of agriculture ministers. Pat Pimm, Peace River MLA, was named agriculture minister last week, making him the seventh person in the portfolio since June 2008. “We need continuity,” said Jeet Dukhia, B.C. Fruit Growers Association president. “We get a new minister and train him and then they are gone in a year. It’s a big con-

cern.” Dukhia says it takes time for commodity groups such as the BCFGA to develop working relation ships with ministers and to make them familiar with issues of concern. With Pimm taking over from Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick, the BCFGA is starting all over again. “We want to give a tour of the Okanagan so he knows our industry,” said Dukhia, adding that any discussions will include the need for the ministry to

fund the replanting of fruit trees to keep the sector viable. While the provincial government is focused on natural gas resource development, Dukhia insists that Victoria must continue to make agriculture a priority because of its importance to B.C.’s economy. “We want to know what their agricultural platform is and especially for the tree fruit sector,” he said. “We (B.C.) have the lowest agricultural budget in the country. We need a replant program on a continuing basis.”

Pen Henge ceremony to mark summer solstice The sun is about to reach its Summer Solstice and the longest day of the summer on Thursday, June 20. To mark the event, a gathering will take place at the Pen Henge standing stone array on Munson Mountain in Penticton that evening. The public gathering is being organized by the Penticton meeting group of the Okanagan Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada and it will feature safe solar viewing through filtered telescopes. If skies are clear, participants will gather at Munson Mountain at around

8.30 p.m. in anticipation of seeing the shadow cast by the sun over the summer solstice stone extending gradually toward the central heel stone.Sunset will take place at approximately 8.58 p.m. The actual time of the solstice will be at 10:04 p.m., not much more than an hour after the Pen Henge sunset. The Pen Henge standing stone array is a project spearheaded by Chris Purton and the Okanagan Astronomical Society which later became part of OC RASC, and which was supported by Penticton City Council and its Parks Department.

The installation, which is located at the top of Munson Mountain above the large Penticton sign on the east side of Okanagan Lake, consists of four stones that delineate the sunset points on the four cardinal dates of the year. Anchored by the Heel Stone, the Equinox Stone points to the Sun’s sunset point at both the Spring and Fall Equinoxes, while the other two stones mark the Winter and Summer Solstice setting points respectively.  Photos of the array and earlier observances can be viewed on the OC RASC website at www.

ocrasc.ca  through the Image Gallery link and the Pen Henge folder.   “For most of the year the structure simply illustrates the enormous range along the western horizon where the sun sets,” said Purton, a retired scientist at the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory at White Lake. “Most people subconsciously know of this, but they are quite fascinated to see the idea laid out so graphically.” A brass plaque with a brief explanation of the array is permanently attached to the top of the heel stone.

Marathon finish Grade 5 student Ryan Taylor, left, and Grade 4 student Sarah Paul finish the last segment of the Giant’s Head School Marathon on Friday morning. Over the past eight weeks, many students at the school have completed a marathon distance of 42.2 kilometres. Some have run more than twice that distance.

Students run the distance Students at Giant’s Head Elementary School have been on the run this spring. Since spring break, they have been tracking the distance they have been running or walking in an effort to complete a marathon distance of 42.2 kilometres. Students from Giant’s Head Elementary were expected to run a one-kilometre loop every school

day to accumulate 40 kilometres by June 13. On Friday, they finished the last 2.2 kilometres. More than 300 students at the school completed this year’s Giant’s Head Elementary School Marathon and some went considerably farther. Darcy Mullin, principal of the school, said many of the students far exceeded

the distance for the run. “A lot of kids have run more than 100 kilometres,” he said. Even some of the Kindergarten students surpassed 80 kilometres. Mullin said the marathon concept worked because it was divided into manageable portions. “Breaking it into manageable pieces has made it

attainable,” he said. Students continued running outside school hours. This year, between 50 and 100 of the students took part in the Giant’s Head Run. Organizers said the goal of the marathon was to create a love and habit of regular exercise and to inspire the students to fitness.

Tony Cooke

March 14, 1948 - June 9, 2013 It is with profound sadness and a sense of great loss that we announce the death of Tony, beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle and loyal friend to many. After establishing a construction company in Shropshire, England, Tony, his wife Jean and son, Mike, started another chapter in their lives when they emigrated to Summerland in 1981. Tony literally made his mark by constructing many buildings in the Okanagan, including Parkdale Lodge, Angus Place, Quinpool Green, La Vista, and Centre Stage Theatre. Rotary’s motto “Service Above Self ” and its 4-way test closely mirrored Tony’s personal ethical views and as a result, he became a very active, enthusiastic member of the Summerland Rotary Club in 1986. Believing strongly in the adage, “Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”, Tony’s main focus while in Rotary was on encouraging self-sustainability in developing nations. In 1991, he and Jean travelled to Zambia to oversee the distribution of medical supplies at the Arthur Davidson Children’s Hospital. These supplies had been collected by Rotarians from health care professionals throughout the Okanagan Valley. Tony and Jean spent the following year collecting hand tools, school books and medical texts to be sent over to the region - a process which turned the Cooke garage into a hoarder’s dream. During his year as Rotary President, Tony was named top president as well as his club being named top club in Rotary District 5060. Other Rotary highlights include his years as Assistant District Governor, his leading and restructuring of RYLA, a program to train 18-26 year old potential leaders as well as his involvement in PETS Seattle, where he helped prepare incoming Rotary presidents. Through these experiences he developed a love of teaching which combined beautifully with his passion for sailing. The result was Okanagan Yachting, through which his enthusiasm and expertise introduced many students to the joy of harnessing the wind, feeling the spray on their faces and being at one with the elements. His greatest joy was his family; wife Jean, son Mike, and daughter-in-law Heather. He loved Canada, living in the Okanagan, camping with friends, experiencing new countries and cultures, designing and constructing beautiful oak furniture for his home, fast cars and motorbikes, socializing with old friends, experimenting and baking wonderfully unique bread, and racing his sailboat,“Number Cruncher.”Even during the challenges of the last 27 months he crammed many trips into the “good” days and lived in the moment. A Memorial Service is scheduled to take place at St. Stephen’s Anglican Church, Prairie Valley Road, Summerland on Saturday June 22nd at 2 p.m. A Celebration of Life will follow in the church hall and a sail past at Summerland Yacht Club following the Celebration of Life. No formal flowers please, but if you wish, bring one flower from your garden to the church entrance. These flowers will be arranged in vases for use in the Memorial Service. If desired, donations in Tony’s memory may be made to pancreaticcancercanada.ca. Condolences may be sent to the family through providencefuneralhomes.com.

Painting added to gallery collection

“Urban Journeys”, featuring abstract paintings by Robert Dmytruk, opens at the Summerland Art Gallery with a reception from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, June 27. The paintings and drawings being exhibited in this new show represent part of the ‘urban’ series of work that Robert Dmytruk has been engaged in for the past several years. His interest is in exploring the numerous sensory overloads that bombard daily urban existence. There will be an Artist’s Talk at 2 p.m. on June 28 where

Arts Palette

David Finnis Robert will be discussing the techniques and themes in these paintings. Please drop by the Gallery to learn more. The exhibit runs until Aug. 10 so there are many opportunities

to bring your summer visitors to see Urban Journeys. When you are at the Summerland Art Gallery do take the time to browse the gift shop. You will find a wide variety of pottery, paintings, photography and gift cards. The Summerland Art Gallery is at 9533 Main St. and Gallery and gift shop hours are: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday. The annual Summer Arts Program run by the Summerland Community Arts Council for children and youth starts on July 8.

This five week program will include: music, drawing, painting, drama, clay, and puppetry. The courses are getting kicked off with the always popular Fun with a Pocket Knife instructed by Rick Wiebe. That week will also have a puppetry class instructed by Claire Tamang. There is a new class this year — ‘Wild about Writing’ instructed by Marian Rudisill. Book early to avoid disappointment as classes fill up quickly. There are loads of exciting and chal-

lenging workshops for kids of all ages. Whether you’re an actor, musician, artist or just simply want to have some fun you’re sure to find something to suit. You will find brochures at the library, pool and Arts Centre. The course descriptions are also online at the Art Council’s

website - http://summerlandarts.com The website also hosts a calendar that lists various arts and culture events both in Summerland and in our neighbouring communities of Naramata, Peachland and Penticton. There’s also a longer version of the Arts Palette that lists many

more events than are possible to include in this weekly column. The Arts Palette is written by David Finnis, Publicity Chair and President of the Summerland Community Arts Council - PO Box 1217, 9533 Main Street, Summerland, B.C. V0H 1Z0.

Year-end recital On June 9, the talented and dedicated piano students of Jean Boothe filled the Summerland United Church with music. Young musicians played a wide variety of styles including Canadian compositions, baroque and classical selections, jazz standards and popular theme songs. Performing for an appreciative audience of over 60 family members and friends, the pianists shared their favourite pieces playing with confidence and flair. At the end of the recital, each student was praised for personal successes during the year. These acknowledgements included exceptional performances in Royal Conservatory exams and the Kiwanis Music Festival as well as performing for community fundraising events. As a special treat, each young musician was presented with a plant from the Windmill Garden Centre and gift certificate from Summerland Sweets.
