The markets, which run each Tuesday at the edge of Memorial Park, will continue until October. The items available range from fresh fruits and vegetables to handcrafted items.
Fruit growers say the municipality and the region need to take measures to ensure there is sufficient water for agriculture during drought years. Speaking to municipal council on Monday, B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association president Glen Lucas and Summerland orchardist Denise MacDonald said a dry year could be detrimental. “If we ever do get a drought, we aren’t prepared for it at the agricultural level,” MacDonald said. A decade ago, in 2003, Summerland experienced one of the worst drought years in its history. Following that experience, the capacity of Thirsk Lake was increased, expanding the community’s water supply. “The solution is more storage,” Lucas said. He added that the greater efficiency in water use has also helped fruit growers, but further measures will be needed, especially as climate change affects precipitation patterns. “We need more of an area-wide approach,” he said. Municipal administrator Tom Day said the present discussions about water are about domestic rates. However, dialogue with the agricultural community will be reopened once the residential billing questions have been answered. The Fruit Growers’ Association represents 540 member orchardists in the province. B.C.’s fruit industry is only 1/30th the size of Washington State’s apple industry, but there are many positive aspects about it. “I think we’re the best Ambrosia and Gala producer in the world,” Lucas said. “Our growers are very advanced, even compared to Washington State.”
Tree fruit project continues by Steve Kidd Black Press
It would be safe to add the tree fruit project to the list of groups that makes your donation stretch a long way. In their case, though, they’re not after your cash, but your time or your fruit trees. The project, organized by the Summerland Asset
Development Initiative, has been collecting fruit for more than a decade from backyards or trees set aside by orchardists. “We thought this would be great for the kids to get out and it brings a positive relationship between them and the community with them out there picking the cherries or whatever fruit it is that people are
willing to offer,” said Val Wright, one of the organizers of the project. “We don’t like seeing fruit that is on the ground. There are just too many hungry people that out there.” With the cherry season starting soon, Wright is on the lookout for volunteers, both returning and, especially, new recruits. Some of the fruit goes back to the owner of the
tree, and some to the volunteer pickers, but mainly the tree fruit project redistributes the fruit to the Food Bank, to seniors’ facilities and to schools. But Wright said they try to do much more with the fruit. “It’s not just that we pick it and we deliver it,” said Wright, listing off some of the initiatives they support, like work-
ing with older community members at the seniors’ centre. “We do pie making, we do canning, we do drying,” she said, discussing how the youth work with the seniors to preserve the fruit. “What an interchange between the older people and the youth. It’s almost magical to watch.” See PROJECT Page 2

That’s just one way to extend the use of the donated fruit. With the help of a local grower, Billy Boerboom of the Apple Barn, they are able to preserve more of the fruit. Boerboom, said Wright, has set aside part of his cold storage facilities for the use of the project, where they store a portion of the fruit earmarked for schools. “We actually have that fruit going until February. Kids are eating pears and apples in February when there is snow on the ground,” said Wright, who operates a school breakfast program. It’s a program that has benefits all around, and not just the tangible benefits of the fruit or having your backyard fruit trees cleared. “When you look at it, we get so much back. It was a way to
give back to the community and a way to meet new people,” said Wright. “We’re trying to teach, we are trying to build as many assets as we possibly can. We are trying to get the youth, the parents, to make this the best community that we possibly can and also to share the wealth we have.” But it doesn’t happen without volunteers. Youth and families are very welcome to join in, said Wright, and of course, anyone with a fruit tree that needs to be picked. “We really do need more volunteers. And we need people to offer us a tree or two trees. Nothing goes to waste and we make sure the fruit goes to a good home,” said Wright. To volunteer, donate a fruit tree for harvest or for more information, call 250-494-9722 or visit www.sadi.ca.
POLICE REPORT Mailboxes entered
Police were called to two instances of mailboxes forced open over the past week. On June 20, mailboxes on Giant’s Head Road at Conway Crescent were broken into. On Monday between 2 and 7 a.m., mailboxes at the 9300 block of Jones Flat Road were entered. Police say mail was likely stolen. In addition to the Summerland RCMP investigation, Canada Post is also investigating the incidents. Other similar cases have been reported elsewhere in the Okanagan, police say.
On June 20, police were called after a water dispensing machine at the Trout Creek Esso had been broken into. Change had been stolen from the machine.
Police were called on June 22 at 11:08 a.m. when two men were fighting on Main Street. An investigation is continuing as one of the men said he was assaulted. One of the two men received minor injuries during the incident. The two are known to each other.
On June 22, police were called after yard work tools were stolen from a seniors’ centre on Brown Street. A Black and Decker lawn mower and a green electric weed eater were taken.
On June 21 at 9:25 a.m., police investigated a 26-year-old Summerland man for impaired driving. The man was sleeping in a vehicle on Prairie Valley Road. He was given a 90-day driving prohibition and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days after he failed a roadside screening device.

Full Circle Outlet store to open by Kristi Patton Black Press
Jessica Nemeth didn’t want to see the community she grew up in lose something that so many depend upon. When she heard the non-profit Penny Lane Bargain Outlet was closing its doors permanently, she batted around the idea of opening another retail outlet that offers rock bottom prices on clothing and furniture while using the profits to inject it back into community projects. “Penny Lane put $2 million into the community in the last 11 years and supported so many projects in Summerland that have to do with youth. There is still
a need for a business like this and there is no place in Summerland right now to buy a pair of socks or clothes for the whole family,” said Nemeth. “I half-heartedly said I was going to save Penny Lane and it has turned into a whole new project, which is awesome.” Now Nemeth, the president of the newly-formed Okanagan Community Development Society, is looking towards the goal of opening a new store in August. Full Circle Outlet, will be in the same vein of the store it is replacing by providing affordable clothing and home furnishings while giving back to the community. They already have made connections with off-shore
manufacturers, purchased home items from Zellers liquidations and Vancouverbased Orb clothing has agreed to sell end of season clothing at low prices. Previous employees of Penny Lane also will be returning to work in the Full Circle Outlet. “My philosophy lately has been that we all have something to give and it can be really little or really big, but why not do something. Someone said to me that I could probably make a really solid business out of this and profit for myself, but that is not what I want. I was born and raised in Summerland, and my mom too, and I want people to see it doesn’t take much to give back.
You just have to give some of your time,” said Nemeth. Others also share that vision and stepped forward to help sit on the board which includes vice president Jeff Kruck, secretary Kristi Leardo, John Ryland and treasurer Paula Cowen. The Summerland Charity Shops Society decided to close the doors of Penny Lane on June 1 because of substandard inventory from suppliers that was coming in and mostly unsaleable. This began after the contract with Sears ended in October 2012 and rather than see its legacy tarnished, the society moved to close the store. Leaning
on the experience of the previous society and on previous reports conducted by Community Futures on Penny Lane, the OCDS developed a new refreshed vision for a new outlet shop. Community Futures and Summerland Credit Union also provided assistance by getting $85,000 in loans to OCDS so they can get their new digs at 13207 Victoria Road (across the street from Penny Lane) open. Nemeth said she can’t thank their new landlords, Dionne and Kosta Bakalos owners of Summerland Gold and Silver, enough for everything they have done on the lease. Full Circle is hoping to be open in
August and Nemeth said they are making plans to get on social media to spread the word of the store and to arrange for a big opening day celebration. “Penny Lane brought a lot of people to Summerland’s downtown core and we are really
lucky to have the past board to have implemented everything they did and really get the ball rolling for this. Combined with our fresh ideas and looking outside of the box we might be able to achieve something that hasn’t been achieved yet,” said Nemeth.

Mail security Although we live in a world where much of our information is circulated electronically, we continue to rely on a postal system for some important purposes. For many, bills and cheques are still sent through the mail, as are parcels and documents. Some of the information is sensitive and confidential. For these reasons, we are concerned about the two incidents over the past week of mailboxes being forced open. This is not just a Summerland problem. Other cases have also been reported elsewhere in the region. At first glance, damage to mailboxes appears to be a nuisance crime and an inconvenience. However, when an awaited cheque does not appear or when billing information does not arrive, the matter becomes much more serious. If a newly issued credit card is among the items taken, or if personal financial information or legal documents are missing, the ramifications can be significant. Unlike other thefts, it is often impossible to determine what has been stolen when mailboxes have been entered. One does not know in advance what has come in the day’s mail. The warnings about checking one’s mail regularly are useful, but it is more important to take measures to ensure this problem does not occur again. If anyone has seen something suspcious when the mailbox incidents occurred, or if anyone has information, however minor, about this crime, please call the police or Crime Stoppers to report it. The next time something like this occurs, it could be your own financial information or personal data which has been compromised.
Tomorrow, Summerland’s graduating students will receive their diplomas at the School Leaving Exercises. This is a significant achievement, one which is many years in the making. Many of the graduates have not just worked hard enough to receive their diplomas; they have also earned scholarships and bursaries as a result of extra efforts. We congratulate all for their achievements.
Cabinet rookies handed hot files VICTORIA – There are nine new faces in Premier Christy Clark’s cabinet, seven of them elected to the B.C. legislature for the first time on May 14. They have been handed some of the hottest problems, and Clark’s marching orders in “mandate letters” for each ministry. And this is the start of a four-year term, when unpopular reforms are Tom Fletcher attempted. Take Amrik Virk, the former RCMP inspector from Surrey who’s suddenly in charge of advanced education. His mandate includes: “Review the student loan program to make recommendations for improvement to ensure the loan program is meeting the needs of today’s students.” Virk must also set targets to “match the skills we need with the skills we are graduating” and require post-secondary schools to “ensure student seats are being filled.” B.C. can’t afford to keep cranking out university grads with $50,000 in debt and no job prospects in a system that’s subsidized 65 per cent. Virk will be working closely with Education Minister Peter Fassbender, who must “ensure seamless transitions” from high school to the workforce for post-secondary trades and apprenticeships. In his spare time, Fassbender is to overhaul the school district
bargaining agency and achieve a 10-year peace with the teachers’ union. Justice Minister Suzanne Anton has worked as a Crown prosecutor, so she’ll have some insight into the system that still grapples with Stanley Cup rioters from two summers ago. Her orders are to get traffic tickets and other administrative penalties out of the courts, keep working on integrating police fiefdoms and generally treat the constipation that afflicts law enforcement today. Oh, and get that new Okanagan prison built, to relieve a system that has inmates living in tents. And examine whether to spin off the Liquor Distribution Branch into a Crown corporation, a possible prelude to selling it. Transportation Minister Todd Stone’s first test was a grilling by the Vancouver media. Yup, this Kamloops hayseed has been to the Big Smoke a few times, ridden that fancy SkyTrain and taken the odd ferry, too. Now he has to impose the ferry route reductions that have been worked on by two previous ministers, and push Metro Vancouver through a referendum on ways to fund its own transit. If more tolls or taxes are going to be implemented, now is the time. Coralee Oakes has made a political leap from Quesnel city hall to the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. One of her key tasks is to
invent a framework for a “rural dividend” from liquefied natural gas development in northwestern B.C. Oakes has to figure out how to “better provide provincial support” to sport and cultural organizations, but do it with no new money. All ministers have strict instructions to balance their lean budgets and take part in the latest “core review” to identify government functions that can be sold, delegated or shut down. New Minister of International Trade Richmond’s Teresa Wat has to find a way to continue the growth of lumber and other exports to China, India and elsewhere on the Pacific Rim. On top of that, the alwaysdelicate softwood lumber agreement with the U.S. expires in three years. The last major eruption on that front was in 2009, when B.C. cut stumpage rates for remote coastal areas to give communities much-needed employment. The Americans were livid, just as they were with our beetle-kill harvesting efforts. And of course, the U.S.-directed environmental movement continues to target Canadian industries. Third-term MLA John Rustad gets aboriginal relations, with specific instructions to deal with gas and perhaps oil pipelines through his Nechako Lakes constituency.

Although we have had plenty of wet weather, summer in the Okanagan is characterized by hot and dry conditions. Wildfires occur each summer and, if past years are any indication, around half are caused by human activity. A carelessly discarded cigarette or a campfire which has not been properly extinguished can easily lead to a devastating fire, destroying forests and threatening communities. Since dry conditions can occur quickly, it is important to be careful around fire at all times.

Summerland Review Thursday, June 27, 2013
Electric vehicle advantages seen Dear Editor: Without much fanfare the District of Summerland has legalized the use of Low Speed Vehicles on its roads. Many people don’t even know what an LSV is. As an ordinary citizen I am not that knowledgeable myself. I have started to research the issue and
am quickly learning to appreciate them as an important component of Summerland’s development strategy. Like myself many citizens have provided input to the “Where do we grow from here?” campaign. We will soon learn about the formal recommendations pre-
pared by the consultants and how council will formulate these into a strategy for the future of Summerland. Based on what I have witnessed in various discussions, I anticipate that the preservation of our natural environment and a safe, friendly, people-oriented community will be essen-
tial to the success of this strategy. LSVs are great facilitators to achieve this vision. They are compact electric vehicles, equipped with lights and safety features. They are smaller and cheaper than cars and designed to get around town. Due to their low speed and open con-
struction, LSVs will make it easier for us to mingle as we conduct our daily business around town, drive our dog to the Rodeo Grounds for a walk along the KVR trail, head up to Giants Head Park for the nice views or get the grandkids down to Peach Orchard Beach. I personally
believe that the introduction of Low Speed Vehicles will allow citizens to further improve the quality of life in our town. The passing of the LSV bylaw however, is only the first step. I’d like to be part of making LSVs a reality and that is up to us as members of the community.
Are you curious or knowledgeable about Low Speed Vehicles? I have set up an e-mail account at LSVforSL@shaw.ca and would like to initiate some dialog among the citizens of Summerland. Drop me a note and we’ll take it from there. Henry Sielmann Summerland

Community picnics are a great place to make memories. This photo captures the action of the girls’ race at a picnic in Trout Creek in 1906. Cheered on by their parents, though probably not so much by their brothers, the girls seem to be giving it their all. On Canada Day, why not make some memories of your own? Come to Memorial Park and enjoy a community picnic with all the fixins — games, food, entertainment and lots of fun — from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the flag-raising ceremony at 11. See you there!
SADI continues efforts to help Summerland youth Dear Editor: I am writing on behalf of the Summerland Asset Development Initiative to first express our gratitude to the District of Summerland for supporting the work we do at the SADI Unity Youth Centre. The generous
support provided through grants such as those provided by the District allows SADI to provide a safe, supervised space for Summerland youth to go outside of school hours. Over the past months we have been working hard to maintain the pro-

Efforts were made to save tree
Dear Editor: I am a resident of Parkdale Manor in Summerland. Two years ago, browsing online, I discovered the manor. I was attracted not only to the comfortable suites but also to the beautiful courtyard with a mountain ash tree as its centre piece. Visiting, I discovered the lovely tree to be even more awesome than the
Service above self
photo shows. I applied, was accepted and moved in. The staff are remarkably friendly, the atmosphere family-like and the food excellent. Last week as we sat at dinner Wayne Cyback, manager of Parkdale Housing visited to tell us that the mountain ash was coming down. He said its roots were heaving the court-
yard bricks, creating a tripping hazard. We were all too stunned to answer. He departed, leaving us to ponder the fate of the tree that we all loved for it beauty and its shade. But he promised he would put up a shelter of some sort with an aluminium roof where we could escape the hot sun when we wanted to sit outside.

We look forward to welcoming you all next time.
I needed a day or two to think about the situation, and decided that I owed it to myself and my fellow tenants to let Wayne know how we felt. So I wrote him a letter. He was courteous enough to come to see me immediately, and to show me the details of what the tree roots were doing to the interlocking bricks in the courtyard. I saw there is a problem, but it was obvious that cutting down the tree was not the only solution. He said he would not consider replacing the mountain ash, and when I questioned him about the three beautiful mature trees in the front yard which are causing heaving
in the brick walkway between them, he said they also would eventually have to go. After encountering Wayne’s brick wall resistance I decided to send a copy of that letter to Orv Robson who is chairman of the Parkdale Housing Board of Directors. Orv also responded immediately and was understanding, but indicated that the board had a contract with Wayne which gave him responsibility for making decisions of this nature. I was back at the brick wall. If the mountain ash comes down, people will still visit the manor, but they will be less tempted to make it their home. Residents will still
live at the manor but they will be less inclined to sit in the lovely courtyard. Trees are living beings that make people feel at home. Aluminium shade devices are mechanical things that people use out of necessity, not because they are comforting and make them want to linger. Grooming the tree and the brickwork may cost a bit more in the short run. But how much will it cost in the long run if the manor loses it’s trees one by one? Just like I was, people will be drawn to stay here because of the homey feelings of trees. How many potential clients will be turned off by a cheap looking alumin-
ium shelter at the centre of the courtyard? And how many brick wall experiences will tenants tolerate before they begin to move on? Parkdale Housing is a non-profit organization with a history of excellent service to seniors in Summerland and area. I would like to see that reputation continue untarnished. Perhaps it needs to review its self-declared goals? “Focusing on client and family satisfaction, staff are committed to the Society’s values of compassion, commitment to excellence, cooperation and innovative approaches to client services.” Keith Dixon Summerland

Ask Your Dentist...
The last time I visited the dentist I had to have that cover over my mouth and I really didn’t Dr. Cindee Melashenko like it. Why do you use that and can I have dental work without it?
It sounds like you are referring to a “rubber dam.” You are right, it is like a cover over your mouth and it helps to isolate your teeth from your saliva. I always use a rubber dam when I am doing a root canal treatment to keep the tooth dry and also to protect you from any sharp instruments or debris from getting into your mouth.
On the trail
Members of the Gellatly Bay Trails and Parks Society visited Summerland’s historic parks. The members travelled from Priest Camp Historic Park at Garnett Lake to the Lookout of the Okanagan Fur Brigade Trail, a distance of 4.1 kilometres. To top off their hike all the members then climbed up Mount Aeneas before returning to Priest Camp.
Speech inspired a generation Dear Editor: Ever since NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw declared those born in the teens and twenties “the greatest generation of the 20th century,” it has been challenging to try living up to that image. Mercifully, perhaps, it is now possible to relax a little, thanks to news emanating from some city halls, some provincial electoral politics, corporate boardrooms and executive offices, the Prime Minister’s office and the adjuncts of the senate chamber. A motivational

Brokaw’s “greatest generation” had a motivational speaker, Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill, who proclaimed on May 10, 1940, “I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, sweat and tears. But we shall not flinch or falter, we shall not flag or fail… Let us, therefore address ourselves to our several duties and so bear ourselves that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth should last a thousand years, men will still say that

I like having isolation for any fillings I do since most of the materials we use to fill your teeth do best in a dry area. Isolation also helps to protect you from swallowing the amalgam (which is a mixture of silver and mercury). For most filling or crown appointments, an alternative we offer is a device called an Isolite. Most of my patients appreciate and prefer it over the rubber dam.

Pipe band seeks additional members Mark Brett Black Press
The pipes, the pipes are a calling. The Summerland Pipes and Drums are looking for a few good men and women to bolster their ranks and keep the spirit of the band alive. In the four years since its inception and certification as the community’s official pipe band, the group of about 15 musicians have participated in a wide range of special
events and parades. While the organization is thriving overall, band officials are finding work, school and other commitments of its members sometimes leaves the group a bit short. While not a competition band, their philosophy is to be a quality group with a generous repertoire of pipe tunes performed in an atmosphere of fellowship. They are hoping to find people of all ages and skill levels from musicians who may

Therefore, those who have been discouraged by internal dissension or lack of leadership in previous bands will find it a refreshing change.” For beginners and those looking to
upgrade their skills, Summerland Pipes and Drums have very experienced musicians in both disciplines. Pipe major David Cain has a resume of membership in Grade 1 and 2 caliber pipe bands in eastern Canada and MacIntosh is a professional percussionist whose experience ranges from military bands to symphony orchestras. Instruction is costfree to members. “It’s for the fun of it,” said MacIntosh.

Babysitting course offered in Summerland
The Kelowna and District Safety Council is bringing the Canada Safety Council’s popular Babysitter Training Course to Penticton and Summerland residents this summer. Penticton courses will run July 15 and 16, July 30 and 31, and August 14 and 15, and Summerland’s course will run on July 25 and 26. These two-day courses will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day and will be held at the Shatford Centre at 760 Main St., Penticton and at the Summerland Asset Development Initiative at 9117 Prairie Valley Rd. Open to boys and girls ages 10 and up, the course offers a full 10 hours of actual training. Many important topics will be discussed, such as the rights and responsibilities of the employer, the child,
and the babysitter, and the developmental and behavioral characteristics of children of different ages. Basic child care, nutrition, injury prevention, emergencies, age-appropriate play, and basic first aid procedures will also be covered. A special component of the course will prepare babysitters for handling the special needs of children who are visually impaired, hearing impaired, physically disabled, speech impaired, and mentally challenged. “Although the Canada Safety council recommends that children don’t start babysitting until they are 12 years old, the reality is that many 10- to 12-year-olds help care for their younger siblings, and this course will give
them the skills and information necessary to be much safer and aware babysitters and helpers,” says Tania Meyer, executive director. “Many parents also register their children in this course as an alternative to Home Alone classes, as the curriculum covered in this babysitting course is much more in-depth than Home Alone curriculum.” Students will receive a KDSC Babysitter’s Gear Bag, a comprehensive student reference book, and a graduation certificate. These courses typically sell out, so register online through the Babysitter Training Course page of KDSC’s website at www.kdsc. bc.ca or by calling KDSC Toll Free at 1-888-580-7233.

Thursday, June 27, 2013 Summerland Review
Contemplating the future of the senate Without question, one of the most frequently raised concerns that I hear from citizens of OkanaganCoquihalla, pertains to the Canadian senate, and by extension senators. Recently I have had several requests to write about the senate in an MP report. Although I have covered this particular topic previously, it has been suggested that some may have missed that report. As this is a topic
of concern for many, I have included further information on the subject of our Canadian senate that I also discussed in February of this year. The two senate questions I hear most often are directly related to each other: “Why isn’t the senate abolished?” and “Why not just stop appointing senators and get rid of the senate?” The answer to these questions is complex as it involves
the legal status of the senate and the obligations of government to comply with legislation that, in some cases, is well over 100 years old. The senate, it should not be forgotten, is part of our constitution. When the founders of Canadian Confederation created the senate, they did so by essentially dividing Canada into five different regions: The Maritimes, Ontario, Quebec, Western and

“Additional.” A d d i t i o n a l includes Newfoundland, Labrador, NWT, Yukon and Nunavut. By design the senate is not based on a representation by population model as is the House of Commons but rather on the principle of “equal” regional representation where the first four regions each have 24 seats while the “Additional” regions have nine of the 105 seats in the senate. All of this was reaffirmed in 1982 with the repatriation of the constitution and a new constitutional amendment process was adopted. Consequently the constitutionally mandated senate representation arrangement means that regions of Canada are legally entitled to the number of seats as defined within the Constitution Act of 1867. To date every Prime Minister elected in Canada’s history has by legal obligation, appointed senators when vacancies arise, most often created when a senator reaches the mandatory retirement age of 75.
In addition, the Prime Minister may, in exceptional circumstances, temporarily appoint four to eight additional senators if there is a deadlock that must be broken. One of the challenges to the senate “equal” representation model is that it conflicts with representation by population. As an example, the current senate model ensures there are actually 30 senate seats east of Quebec – that is six more senate seats than the 24 in all of Western Canada combined. Likewise for Ontario in spite of having a larger population than Quebec, Ontario has the same number of senate seats as Quebec. This senate imbalance was summarized recently by Justin Trudeau who made the comment that “We have 24 senators from Quebec and there are just six from Alberta and six from B.C.… That’s to our advantage.” Given that some regions in Canada, from a population perspective, are under-represented compared to others,
Dan Albas when it comes to the discussion of senate abolishment, many in western Canada are strongly in favour while regions of Canada such as Quebec are just as strongly opposed as demonstrated by Mr. Trudeau. Many constituents are surprised that the legislation to reform the senate, enabling provincial elections and establishing for the first time, term limits, have been held up in Provincial courts. In order to be able to move on senate reform, and rather than wasting years and potentially millions of taxpayer dollars in legal wrangling, our government has posed a series of six questions to the Supreme Court of Canada requesting a ruling on how the
senate can be legally reformed or abolished in accordance with our constitution. One of the many questions to determine if there is a requirement to have a Canadian constitutional debate involving all of the provinces and territories. Although many have expressed a desire to see action taken on the senate, few have expressed interest in opening up a Canadian constitutional debate that could potentially pit different regions of the country against each other at a time when national unity is critical. This will be the first time in over three decades that our Supreme Court will look at the issue of senate reform and/ or abolishment in a review process that will ideally provide more clarity on how action can be taken on our Canadian senate. Dan Albas is the Member of Parliament for OkanaganCoquihalla. His blog is DaninOttawa.com and previous MP reports can be read at the www.danalbas. com website.

Members of the Summerland Yacht Club held a sail past in honour of Tony Cooke, whose memorial service took place on Saturday. Cooke was an ardent sailor and sailing instructor. The Summerland Yacht Club boats sail past Cooke’s boat Number Cruncher, which was skippered for the occasion by his son Mike. On the yard arm is a photo of Number Cruncher, skippered by Cooke, in full sail during a recent Giant’s Head Regatta. The boats also sailed through roses that had been brought from the gardens of Tony and Jean Cooke’s friends and then scattered from Number Cruncher.

Endurance athletes compete in Ultraman Once again, the South Okanagan and Similkameen will play host to one of North America’s most challenging endurance events: Ultraman Canada. Ultraman Canada is an individual three day, 514.5 km swimming, biking and running endurance race that takes place during the August long weekend. This year’s event marks the 13th running since its inception in 1993. The event didn’t run for a few years in the
1990s due to lack of participants for ultra distance events. This year just as final preparations are being completed, Ultraman was very pleased to be contacted by IGA, Okanagan Falls and H. Y. Louie to come on board as a gold sponsor of the event. “This is a huge sponsorship for us and the entire event as IGA will be an active supporter of the athletes, support crews and volunteers,” said race director Steve Brown.
“IGA will be a major supplier of food and hydration products for everyone in the event. The location of the IGA store in Okanagan Falls makes stocking up for our athletes simple and convenient, to say nothing of the Day 1 Finish which is directly behind the store in Kenyon Park.” Athletes Dave Matheson and Bruce Schoenne are locals along with three other Okanagan Athletes who will be competing along
with Mexican Inaki De Le Parra. Other countries represented in the event are United Kingdom, USA, Australia, Russia and Israel. There are 29 athletes in this year’s invitation only event. Athletes must have completed at least an iron distance race in the previous 18 months under 14.5 hours to qualify for an invitation. Day 1 (Aug. 3) begins with a 10-kilometre swim in Skaha Lake from Penticton to Sovereign
Road near Okanagan Falls, followed by a 144.8-kilometre bike ride through the south Okanagan, over the Richter Pass, and ends back in Kenyon Park in Okanagan Falls. Day 2 (Aug. 4) sees competitors start a 274.2-kilometre bike ride from Penticton to Osoyoos, returning to Okanagan Falls, then climb “The Wall” to Willowbrook and Twin Lakes on their way to Princeton where they complete an out and back section to
Alison Lake to finish at the Princeton Arena. Day 3 (Aug. 5) completes the event with an 84.4-kilometre run from Princeton to Summerland along the Princeton Summerland Road. The athletes finish at Memorial Park in Summerland. The event this year features five men all capable of winning the event. De La Parra won last year’s Ultraman United Kingdom and has to be considered among the favourites. Local favourite Matheson, former winner John Bergen, and new comers Craig Percival of Australia and Christian Isakson of Portland, Oregon are also competing. The women’s race only has five entrants but all of them are capable athletes and in the hunt for the win. Okanagan athlete Kathleen Wood of West Kelowna is the local favourite. There are two returning veterans
and three rookies at the Ultraman distance. The Ultraman family of events is also about to welcome a new event in the series located in Orlando Florida. The inaugural race is set for February 2014. This will bring the total number of Ultraman Events to 4 including Ultraman U.K. and the Ultraman World Championships, Hawaii. The expansion of the brand is also being discussed during Ultraman Canada as chair and owner Jane Bockus will be here to hear presentations from other locations including Australia for 2015. Residents are invited to witness the end of all stages as follows: Stage 1, Kenyon Park, Okanagan Falls, approximately 2 p.m.; Stage 2, Princeton Arena, approximately 3 p.m., Stage 3 Memorial Park, Summerland approximately 1:30 p.m.

Summerland Review Thursday, June 27, 2013
Golfer in Maple Leaf Junior Tour Emanuel Sequeira Black Press
Being among the youngest bantamaged boys in the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour, Declan Riddle just wants to gain experience. Riddle, 12, said it’s been good playing in Coquitlam, Langley and Pitt Meadows’ Swan-e-Set Bay Resort. “I really love it,” said Riddle, who shot an 85 on June 2, which was his best. “They (players) are very good. They do have some talent in parts of their game.” The Summerland resident said his play has been okay but knows he has more. Riddle wants to continue getting scores in the 85 range and lower. Playing on the MJT will give the experience while focusing on hitting the ball straight. “Working on not worrying about distance,” said Riddle, who appreciates the support from his family. “More on accuracy. If you want to win but make some mistakes, it will be difficult to get back in.”
Declan Riddle, 12, of Summerland was one of the youngest bantam-aged boys competing in the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour.
Riddle’s coach Brodie Carle said the first year for players in the MJT is a feeling out process. “It’s hard the first year,” he said, as players are learning the courses. “He’s done reasonably
well.” Carle, an instructor at the Two Eagles Academy in Kelowna, said that Riddle possesses outstanding composure and his best features physically are his short game and put-
ting. “At 12 he is a feel player which is very rare,” said Carle, who has coached Riddle since he was 10. “I coach other good players who depend on instruction. He makes a lot
of independent decisions.” What Carle loves about Riddle is his attitude and awareness. Riddle loves to play the game. “It’s so tough to play it but when you
have it, it’s really fun to do it,” said Riddle, a fan of Phil Mickelson because of his consistent play and focus. Riddle, a multisport athlete in hockey, basketball, volleyball, tennis, squash,
rugby, karate and swimming, began playing golf when he was three after he was given a set of plastic clubs. The backyard became his training grounds. He eventually upgraded to the Summerland Golf and Country Club, whose staff he praised for their kindness, after trading in his kid clubs for real ones. Among Riddle’s goals is to become a scratch player at age 14 and travel for tournaments. The MJT, according to its website, provides a road to college golf in Canada and is the only program offering free college consultations. Players get exposure to coaches during qualifiers or high-level tournaments. Riddle, who also plays in B.C.’s Zone 2 and shoots in the mid to late 70s, has also been chosen to represent B.C. in Washington State for Wahlroth Cup (Under Junior Linkster - Vancouver based not Okanagan) which is a Match Play style as per the Ryder Cup.

Summerland Review Thursday, June 27, 2013
The staff and students of the Summerland Montessori took the opportunity to thank Josh Roberts of Murray’s Pizza last week. Roberts has been sponsoring the school’s reading program by giving a personal pizza to any student reaching their monthly reading goal. This year marks the 10th year that Roberts has provided this service.
Museum holds summer events The Summerland Museum would like to invite you to visit them on Canada Day after the flag raising ceremony in Memorial Park. They have a fabulous new display on the Japanese community of Summerland which is well worth seeing. The museum will be open with special hours from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Canada Day. They are, of course at 9521 Wharton St. beside the Summerland Library. In addition, to their new Japanese display the Summerland Museum is excited to once again be offering their very popular Geology Bus Tour of Summerland. Join expert geologist Dr. Kathleen Jagger for an entertaining and informative journey exploring the first rock formations of Summerland. The tour will be offered twice this summer, on Saturday, July 20 and again on Saturday, August 10. Registration and payment are required prior to the event. Please call the Summerland Museum for more information at 250-494-9395 or swing on by at 9521 Wharton Street, Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Opening next Thursday, July 4 at the Cannery Stage in Penticton is Fortune’s Fools. This hilarious comedy, by Frederick Stroppel, is a concise history of love gone right and love gone wrong.
It’s the story of two couples, Chuck and Gail who are about to be married and Jay and Bonnie the best man and maid of honour. Chuck is so smitten with Gail that he makes up stupid rhymes like “perfect life and perfect wife.” Jay on the other hand is less smitten with feminist, vegetarian, Bonnie. After their first meeting he remarks that he has experienced “...an overwhelming rush of instant contempt.” Things don’t always work out the way we expect and the twists and turns in these two relation-
David Finnis ships are definitely a unique look at the institution of marriage. Showtimes are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. There will be a reception opening
night in the adjoining Opus Bistro which will give everyone a chance to meet and chat with the cast and crew. Reserved seat tickets are available at the Wine Country Visitor’s Centre Railway and Eckhardt in Penticton or reserved by phone at 250-2762170. ooo If you know of an event you feel should be included in the Arts Palette or on the Arts Council’s online calendar, please email: artspalette@ summerlandarts. com or call: 250-4948994. http://summerlandarts.com and
