by John Arendt Summerland is another step closer to having a bus service now that the municipality and B.C. Transit have entered into an agreement. The agreement was approved on Monday. The service will include four return trips each

Camp opens



weekday and two weekday stops in Trout Creek. The Penticton Regional Hospital will be included as one of the stops. Fares will be $2 for a trip within Summerland and $4 for a one-way trip to or from Penticton. At present, Summerland has a paratransit service between Summer-




land and Penticton, operating one 20-passenger bus 2,250 hours a year. This service, a door-todoor pickup, requires riders to make arrangements 24 hours in advance. For a fixed-route service, the cost to the municipality is expected to run between $48,000 and $54,000 a year.




While the agreement has been approved, the details have yet to be determined. At present, there are several options for service, depending on the destinations in Penticton and on the routes in Summerland. All options are for four weekday trips, although



the times of those trips has yet to be determined. Mayor Janice Perrino said the service must be set up to allow working commuters to get to Penticton early enough to get to workplaces in the city and leaving late enough to allow them time to catch a return bus.

John Arendt Summerland Review

Participants in the Valley First Granfondo Axel Merckx on Sunday morning cycled up Peach Orchard Road in the King of the Mountain challenge. Close to 3,000 participants took place in the third annual cycling event.

Curbside garbage bylaw urged by John Arendt A bylaw restricting when Summerland residents could put out their garbage would help to reduce unwanted encounters with bears, a wildlife advocate says. Zoe Kirk, community coordinator of the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen’s WildSafeBC program, said Summerland does not have a curbside garbage bylaw at present. As a result, some residents will put their gar-

bage out the night before it is to be picked up. The smell of the garbage then attracts bears and other wild animals. So far this year, two problem bears have been destroyed in Summerland and last year, three or four bears were destroyed, Kirk said. “Summerland has traditionally been a bit of a hot spot for bear encounters,” she said. In Naramata, where a garbage bylaw was introduced several years ago,

the number of encounters with bears has dropped dramatically. In the past, bear complaints were common there and conservation officers had to destroy six to seven bears each year. In the last three years, one problem bear had to be destroyed. “We have no less bears there,” Kirk said. The Naramata bylaw forbids residents from setting out their garbage until the morning it is to be picked up.

While a fine is in place for violators, so far it has not been used. Mayor Janice Perrino said a curbside garbage bylaw will likely come to the council table in the near future. “For me, if we can save even one bear, it’s worth it,” she said. Kirk added that the bylaw also helps to reduce the number of encounters with other wildlife, such as deer. The WildSafeBC program recently installed

six remote wildlife cameras in Summerland in order to track the movements of animals in the community. The pictures from these cameras will then be analyzed and the data will be used to provide information about the species and their movements in the area. The results will be provided to the municipality, giving more information for planning, conservation and wildlife management.

municipality. The start date has not yet been finalized, but Perrino would like to see it

begin in fall. “Our hope is for September or October,” she said. Once the bus

system is in place, adjustments will be made to the schedule and the service. “It’s going to take

some time for this to get up and running,” she said. Steve Harvard, senior regional transit manager with B.C. Transit, said the details such as the times when the buses will run have yet to be determined. He said the initial service will be for Monday to Friday during the day. “My concern is that there are no weekends and no nights,” Perrino said. Coun. Martin Van Alphen said the need for a bus service is greatest among seniors and among students, but a weekday daytime service will only benefit seniors. “I don’t think we’re addressing our youths,” he said, adding that they would use the service in the evenings and on the weekends.

Harvard said the initial route can be expanded in the future if the demand exists. “We have to get the service established,” he said. Monday to Friday service is normally the highest demand for transit service. Coun. Bruce Hallquist said it is important for council to consider the service carefully. “I’m not as sold as the rest of you on this,” he said. He added that the bus service between Peachland and Kelowna often has empty buses on its route. The motion to sign the transit agreement was carried with Hallquist opposed. Coun. Lloyd Christopherson was not present at the meeting.

Summertime Cheer

It has taken a while but it now looks like we are headed toward an Okanagan Summer. While not everyone is a total sun fanatic, we all enjoy the Okanagan for what it has become famous for. No matter what outdoor activity you enjoy, the holiday and summer season is time when everyone should take extra precautions when driving or traveling. Please be extra careful on the busy roads this summer. Arriving safely is far more important than getting there quickly. If you are going to enjoy more spirited beverages this summer, please take advantage of Designated Drivers and Taxis. Statistics very clearly show that there is an increase in Drinking and Driving during the summer season. Let's see a reversal of that trend. We will all be better off for it.

our pick

Transit planning An agreement bringing scheduled transit service into Summerland has been needed for many years, but a bus service by itself is not good enough. The system needs to be planned and scheduled so it can meet the needs of those who need it the most. For this reason, there are some concerns about the system which has been proposed for the community. It is much better than the existing paratransit service, but still far from ideal. The proposed system offers four trips to Penticton each weekday. This is a good start, but when the buses run is just as important as the frequency. Unless the service allows commuters to ride to and from Penticton in time for work each day, it cannot meet the needs of a large number of potential riders. Unless it has evening service, it will not help the youths who want to go to Penticton for various activities. Since the schedule has not yet been finalized, it is possible to create the service which is right for our community, however despite the best efforts to make the schedule work, it may be lacking. The information so far calls for a weekday service, but says nothing about weekend bus service. For those with Monday to Friday work or school commitments, weekday service appears adequate, but for those who want to go to Penticton for shopping or social activities and for those who work anything other than a Monday to Friday shift, weekend service is necessary. The service must then be weighed against the cost to the municipality. There is a cost to basic transit. Additional service adds to this cost. If it is planned carefully, it is likely the service would be well used. If the service is inadequate or poorly scheduled, it will be nothing but a waste of money.

The grand opening of Agur Lake Camp on the weekend has been years in the making. The camp, for those with special needs, has come about because of the generosity of many in the community who have donated money, supplies and time. The result is a camp which will provide an experience to many who have not been able to access the outdoors in the past.

Get ready for Hydro rate hikes VICTORIA – There’s a new sheriff in town for BC Hydro, and it didn’t take long for the political range war to resume. The new sheriff, Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett, found himself on the barricades as soon as he got the hugely complex responsibility for energy and mines. His saddlebags bulge with reports on BC Hydro’s Tom Fletcher seemingly runaway costs, along with Premier Christy Clark’s “core review” to cut $50 million a year from government operations. NDP energy critic John Horgan highlighted the latest BC Hydro troubles in his assault on the B.C. Liberal budget. First there was a $140 million cost overrun on the Northwest Transmission Line, under construction north from Terrace to the tiny Tahltan village of Iskut and adjacent mine properties. Then BC Hydro revealed results of an audit of its earthquake preparedness. “Condition red” was the key message. Basically, the sprawling utility has disaster plans for each of its dams or other power facilities, but no overall way to get the provincial power grid back up after a major earthquake. Horgan recited his list of BC Hydro sins after a decade of

meddling by the BC Liberals: huge deferred debt revealed by the Auditor General, enormous liabilities for private power contracts, and more rate increases that Bennett has already admitted are on the way. And now they can’t even keep us safe from the big one. Bennett fired back. About $2 billion of that debt is for seismic upgrades for the 80-yearold Ruskin Dam in Maple Ridge, and the equally frail John Hart Dam on the Campbell River, built with wooden water pipes. Major BC Hydro works slowed down after completion of Revelstoke and Mica dams in the 1980s, and now the work is more expensive. The Northwest Transmission Line is a partnership with Imperial Metals, which wants to power its Red Chris coppergold-silver mine. Bennett said the company is not only paying for the last section to Iskut and the mine site, but pitching in for the main line as well. Ottawa paid $130 million to get remote communities off decades of dependence on diesel generators. AltaGas, owner of one of those private power projects in the region, puts in $180 million to get connected to the grid. The line will open up more mining and hydro possibilities. The cost overrun traces back mainly to the shortage of high-skill labour such as geo-

technical engineering that the remote region already faces. And this is before natural gas pipelines and LNG plants gear up. Bennett takes over from the last sheriff, Rich Coleman, who put BC Hydro through the wringer in 2011. Coleman soon abandoned his idea of putting off the Ruskin and John Hart upgrades (again) to keep rates low through the election, and saw the B.C. Utilities Commission jack up the rate increase to seven per cent to help slow the ballooning debt. What’s ahead for rates? The utility is looking for 32 per cent in the next three years, says energy lawyer David Austin. He calculates that only 2.5 per cent is attributable to increased private power costs. Among other things, BC Hydro needs regional emergency centres capable of functioning after a Japan-sized quake, plus expansion. Bennett came clean on another reason for rate increases – the government’s increasing dependence on taking a “dividend” as BC Hydro’s lone “shareholder.” The newly updated budget tells us this annual “dividend” is past $500 million and rising fast: $545 million this year, $611 million next year and $684 million the year after. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews. com.

bad apples When a charity shop is broken into, the effect of the crime goes far beyond the dollar value involved. Last week’s break-in at the Critteraid Charity Shoppe on Main Street did not net the thieves much money, but it was a blow for the store and for Critteraid. Not only was money taken; the door locks also had to be changed, resulting in a loss for the shop. This in turn means a little less money for Critteraid to use in its efforts to help animals.

The Early years




s 5

Lions Club gave much support Dear Editor: It is with regret that the Summerland Lions Club has had to advise that the club, figuratively speaking, is closing its doors. The Summerland Lions Club has, over a period of nearly 40 years, helped make our community a better place to live. Its many achievements include the providing of playground equipment in our parks, being a driving force behind the building of the Harold Simpson Memorial Youth Centre, etc.

Groups and individuals have also benefitted from the assistance provided by the Lions including the Lions Easter Seal bus, Air Cadets, Boy Scouts, Girl Guides, student bursaries and the royalty pageant to name a few. The members of the Lions Club, past and present, can be justly proud of the contribution they have made to Summerland. This support has taken many forms including financial, supplies, prizes for raffles and other fundraising activities.

The Lions Club has reached the point where declining membership, increasing age of the membership and an inability to attract new members all add up to the fact that the club is unable to undertake new projects nor carry on with other activities for the betterment of our community. Thank you Summerland for helping our Lions Club help the community. John Edwards president Summerland Lions Club Summerland

Dear Editor: At the end of June, Leo Caumartin retired from his dry cleaning business. He is one of Summerland’s most conscientious good citizens. We have appreciated the care he always took.

He would make sure that your soiled or spoiled clothing was returned to you in its original condition or better. From grease-covered overalls to a tiny baby’s christening dress, each article was given a new life.

I’m sure that the endless sound of his machines and washers and pressers all day must have seemed to echo in his ears after he went to bed. He will be missed but he has earned a break. Griselda Evans Summerland

Brent Mountain has long been a favourite destination and while it’s not an extreme hike, one has to admire the hardiness of this young woman to make the trip in a skirt and loafers. This photo, taken in 1937, shows the fire lookout that still sits atop the mountain. Signatures from long ago can be found in the log book and on the walls of the old building and though most of the log books have become prized souvenirs, the Summerland Museum would appreciate the opportunity to scan them and preserve the history they contain. Hopefully there will always be a book and pencil in the Brent Mountain Lookout.

Dear Editor: Just think: If all proceeds from the Penticton Regional Hospital parking lot were to flow into a special fund for the hospital itself, a lot of financial woes would to be solved. This hospital was built by the people for the people, and no council or foundation should be allowed to literally give away potential earnings from this parking lot to a private company. There is only one description for this decision: “predatory capitalism.” This is a form of capitalism that is entirely aimed to benefit only a few. This type of capitalism is impossible under a social democracy where people actually have a say, but is

allowed to flourish under any business-minded form of government and therefore borders close to fascism. Hard words to swallow? Yes, anytime government allows itself to be dictated by business, it’s called fascism. So, imagine my horror when receiving the latest flyer from the hospital foundation begging us, the tax payer for extra donations for a new digital X-ray machine. We have been very supportive towards the hospital over the years but were never asked if we would like to pay for parking on our own property. Yes, the hospital parking lot belongs to us the people, not some foun-

dation. But still, the proceeds should be going to the hospital itself to help finance those desperately needed upgrades. Heck, if I knew my parking fees and fines were to go to the hospital itself I might even consider using that lot and provoking a fine to boot to help a good cause. My main concern is about all those people that have a large enough burden to bear by having to visit loved ones in the hospital and who should not need to worry about some parking fee and being harassed by an attendant that was observed while he was waiting and watching for someone’s time to run out.

School district sued following crash Head-on collision near Summerland occurred in June, 2011 by Joe Fries Black Press Two people whose car was involved in

a three-vehicle crash that killed a man and sent 10 others to hospital have filed a lawsuit against the Okanagan Skaha School District and one of its teachers. The estate of John Borba is also named in the notice of claim

filed in May in B.C. Supreme Court in Victoria. On the day of the June 2011 crash on Highway 97 near Summerland, Borba’s car crossed the centre line and collided head-on with a bus carrying 14 students

from Princess Margaret Secondary School. Borba, 46, died at the scene, while nine students were sent to hospital along with Jennifer Mitchell, the pregnant teacher who was driving the 24-seat bus.

A coroner’s investigation later found the rear tires on Borba’s northbound Chrysler Cirrus were nearly bald and, combined with water on the road, likely resulted in his vehicle hydroplaning and sliding into the southbound bus, which was returning to Penticton from a field trip in Kelowna. The third vehicle, an Oldsmobile Alero driven by Elaine Tanner, was also travelling southbound when it was sideswiped by the bus and pushed into the concrete guard along the road shoulder, according to the coroner’s report. Tanner’s lawsuit alleges 27 separate acts of negligence on

the part of the three defendants, including: Borba failing to maintain his lane and operating a vehicle he knew was defective; Mitchell failing to reduced the bus’s speed to avoid the crash; and the school district failing to have the bus properly serviced and maintained. As a result, the notice of claim continues, Tanner sustained injuries to her left foot and back, experiences anxiety and difficulty sleeping, and has suffered pain, permanent disability, and a loss of earnings and enjoyment of life. No monetary figure is listed in the lawsuit, but she is seeking general and special damages, plus costs for legal fees

and health care. Tanner was a triple-medalist in swimming for Canada at the 1968 Olympics. Her husband, John Watt, was in the car with her at the time of the accident and has also filed a lawsuit naming the same three defendants. Replies to the lawsuits have not yet been filed. Watt told CTV News after the crash that he tried to help Borba, but was too late. “The impact of that really upset me that I had to witness this poor young fellow’s death, but to his family: He didn’t feel any pain. It happened very quick and very suddenly,” Watt said.

Summerland’s reservoirs are still filled and overflowing as the Thirsk Dam continues to spill. Shawn Hughes, water distribution chief operator for the municipality, said the reservoir normally continues to spill until mid to late July,

but from 2000 to 2009, the reservoir stopped spilling in late June or early July. In spring, melting snow fills a series of reservoirs for the community. Once the reservoirs stop spilling, the water remaining is all that is available for

the community for the rest of the year. In 2011, the reservoirs stopped spilling on July 31 and in 2012, the spill date was July 14. Hughes said he is expecting a normal year for the community’s water supply this year.

Critteraid charity store broken into

A break-in at the Critteraid Charity Shoppe last week did not net the thieves much money, but it took a significant hit on the store’s fund-

raising work. The break-in occurred overnight on Monday. A total of $105 was taken, “which for us is a lot of money,”

said Pat Smith of Critteraid. “It wiped out the money we made on the holiday Monday.” The store lost further as the locks had

to be changed — at a cost exceeding the value of the money taken. “The staff here were in tears on Tuesday,” Smith said. “I’m

still very unhappy and sick about the whole thing.” The store was not damaged and there was nothing else taken.

Great question Don. Enamel is the really hard protective surface on your teeth. Studies show that the average human will wear away enamel at 1mm in 100 years. You can imagine that 1mm of tooth loss isn’t very much. So, when your hygienist or dentist sees more than 1mm or significant wear on your teeth when you are very young, they start asking questions. When are you damaging your teeth? And why? Many people unknowingly clench their teeth during the day, usually due to stress. We press our teeth together the hardest during the day. If our front teeth are chipping or wearing it usually happens during the day. Once you find out when it is happening you could wear a guard to protect your teeth from damage (for example while in front of your computer screen, while driving, or while exercising/ weight lifting). At night we can wear our enamel away too. People only clench or grind during a small portion of the night. We don’t grind our teeth at night because of stress, but the theory is that we move our jaw to the side to open our airway because we can’t breathe at night (sleep apnea). The grinding pressure is lighter than during the day but we find damage on the back teeth because our mouth is so dry that the friction can cause enamel loss night after night. Most people don’t notice they clench during the day and if you grind at night, it isn’t likely to be all night long, so your wife may not wake up hearing you. The next time you are in to see your dentist, ask where the damage is. If it is on the back teeth you may wish to request a sleep apnea test. Keep asking questions! We’re here to help in any way we can. Feel free to call, stop by, or send us an e-mail message. We are always accepting new patients and I’d be happy to answer your question in the next article (anonymously if desired). Have a great week!

Orchards spared cherry damage by John Arendt

The hot temperatures last week, on the heels of cool and wet weather in late June, took a toll on the cherry crop in

Oliver and Osoyoos, but orchardists in Summerland have fared much better. Keith Carlson, a Summerland cherry grower, said the cherry varieties in

Oliver and Osoyoos are early season cherries which are harvested at the beginning of July. As a result, the cherries, which were ripening, split when

the hot weather came. In Summerland, he said, fruit growers have later season cherries which were not affected by the weather change. Weather condi-

tions still can threaten cherry crops, Carlson said. The combination of rain followed by heat will result in split fruit. “You can lose a whole crop in a mat-

ter of hours,” he said. Last year, cherry growers were hit with a severe hail storm in late July, just before mid-season and lateseason varieties were to be picked.

The cherry industry has been consolidating as 80 per cent of the cherries grown in Summerland are grown by 20 per cent of the orchardists.

Measures urged to cut air conditioner usage by John Arendt The recent hot weather has meant a greater demand on energy as residents cool their homes in the late afternoons and early evenings. However, the cooler indoor temperatures come at the expense of greater energy consumption and higher power bills. “By taking simple steps to save energy, customers can reduce the load on their air conditioners or heat pumps, which can help their appliances last longer and help them avoid extra

costs on their electricity bills,” said Tom Loski, vice-president of customer service at Fortis B.C. Fortis advises customers to set their air conditioners to 25 or warmer, to use fans to only cool the rooms they are using, to keep their air conditioners or heat pumps well maintained and to avoid using heatproducing appliances during the hottest times of the day. “We definitely notice a spike in usage with the hotter temperatures,” said Nicole Bogdanovic, communications specialist with Fortis.

While the electrical system can handle the load, the cost savings from conservation can be significant. Those who are looking to install a home cooling system should consider an air source heat pump, since it is the most efficient way to heat or cool a house heated by electricity, Bogdanovic said. Rebates and loans are available through Fortis. Information about how an air conditioner may affect one’s electricity bill is available using the energy calculator at fortisbc. com/energycalculator.

Make Your Home Safe for Independent Living Are you a low-income senior or a person with a disability who wants to live safely and independently in the comfort of your home? Do you have difficulty performing day-to-day activities? Does your home need to be adapted to meet your changing needs? If so, you may be eligible for financial assistance under the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program. Find out today if you are eligible and if you meet all of the requirements as a low-income homeowner or as a landlord applying on behalf of an eligible tenant.

HAFI adapts homes for B.C. seniors and people with disabilities

Brenda has always been an active woman. However, recent health issues including osteoarthritis in her left knee and losing kidney function have slowed her down. Her mobility is limited and she is now on dialysis three days a week. To adjust to her changed circumstances, Brenda sought help with her daily living activities. Part of that help came from the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program offered through BC Housing. Launched in January 2012, the HAFI program provides financial assistance to help eligible low-income seniors and people with disabilities adapt their homes so they can continue to live independently. Brenda applied for a new walk-in bathtub because she couldn’t safely get out of the tub on her own. Walk-in tubs include additional safety measures such as anti-slip floors, grab bars, and a very low step in. Home adaptations may also include handrails in halls or stairs, ramps for


easier access, easy-to-reach work and storage areas in the kitchen, lever handles on doors or faucets, walk-in showers, and bathtub grab bars and seats. Brenda is a strong advocate for the program and has even shared HAFI brochures with nurses in the renal unit where she undergoes dialysis. If you or someone you know is having difficulty performing day-to-day activities safely and independently – the HAFI program may be able to help. Since the program began, more than 300 households completed renovations with HAFI financial assistance, making it possible for seniors and people with disabilities to continue to live in the safety and comfort of their home.

Agur Lake Camp holds grand opening by Carla McLeod Special to the Review

Out for a ride

Dawn Widdifield, executive director of the Community Recreational Initiates Society, left, and Volunteer Katelyn Marsden take Adam Collins for a ride in one of their adaptive trail riders, during the grand opening celebrations at the Agur Lake Camp.

Bonnar Dowler’s dream to establish a camp where families with special needs could go to enjoy the wilderness has come to fruition. The Agur Lake Camp Society held its grand opening celebrations on Saturday. The Community Recreational Initiates Society was on hand with their adaptive equipment giving trail rides to those with disabilities. Emceeing the event were president of the society, Carla Ohmenzetter and speakers bureau, Katie Bowling. Together they thanked the many people who have been involved over the years in making the camp a reality. Several presentations were also made. Dan Albas congratulated everyone involved and provided funding for

the hiring of a summer student. Telus presented a cheque for $15,000. The Penticton Kiwanis Club presented a cheque for $1,000, with Peter Armstrong of the club personally giving $100, and challenging others to buy a foot of trail. Sue Maverty of the Penticton Adventurers Club gave a cheque for $250. Ron Restrick of the Kettle Valley Steam Railway announced a continuing partnership with Agur Lake to provide a camp train each year, donating all proceeds to the camp. During the afternoon the public toured the cabins and traversed the trails and celebrated together the wonder of what can be accomplished when people work together towards a common goal. For more information about the camp visit agurlakecamp. ca, email or telephone 250-809-7130.

Residents petition Parkdale Manor to save tree by Carla McLeod Special to the Review The residents of Parkdale Manor have banded together in an attempt to save a tree in the courtyard of their home. A petition has been sent to the administrator of Parkdale Housing, Wayne Cybak as well as to the board of directors. The petition was signed by 80 per cent of the residents, asking the administration not to cut down the tree but to explore other options to solve the problem of the heaving bricks. Options include replacing the bricks with a pea-stone patio, an on-grade deck, or covering them over by building a ring bench around the tree. “That tree is kind of symbolic for us living here. It belongs with us,” said Kirsten DahlJensen, one of the residents. “They are going to cut it down because it is hollow inside. We are not whole either and we don’t want to be cut down. Even if the tree may be dying,

we are all dying, so why can’t it be here with us until it dies?” Helene Hamaliuk remembers a time when the previous owners would trim the tree and regularly check and replace the bricks and tamp down any roots, but she said it had not been done in years. “We need the trees because they give us oxygen,” she said. Others expressed how much they loved the beautiful old tree, saying how it provided shade as well as a home and food for the birds. Keith Dixon said, “there is a big difference for any of us to be sitting under a tree or to be sitting under an aluminum roof.” He said the philosophy is to get rid of trees that require any kind of maintenance. Jennifer Heald said there has been a lack of communication and she feels the matter should go before the board, before any decision is made. Cybak said he has had an arborist look at the tree and

would not be saying anything until he had received the report. Board chair Orv

People’s choice

Robson said he respects the feelings of the resident and realizes the tree has

significant meaning to them. “We have to look at what the conse-

quences of leaving the tree would be and look at the possible detriment it would be

to the surroundings,” he said, adding that he wished the tree could stay.

Summerland artist Pat Thomson shows her painting Blue Moon, which received the People’s Choice Award at the Summerland Art Club’s annual show. The painting is an acrylic piece using mixed media. In late September, when the club resumes, Thomson will conduct a demonstration and workshop showing how she achieved the effect. The Summerland Art Club meets in the lower level of the Summerland Library each Wednesday beginning in September.

Hunters Hill is a privately owned, multi-acre land parcel situated across the Highway from Sumac Ridge Estates. The land has never been in the Agricultural Land Reserve and is zoned for residential housing.


Hunters Hill has been working to compile important research and investigative data to attain a detailed understanding of the land itself. Hunters Hill has been exploring the potential and considering the benefits of a Neighbourhood Plan for submission to Council.


A Neighbourhood Plan is a land use document with clearly defined regulatory requirements. There are approved Neighbourhood Plans already in place for a number of land parcels in Summerland.



There have been a number of significant changes in the immediate vicinity of Hunters Hill over the last 3 years, some of which include: - Highway 97 expansion at Bentley Rd; - Open gravel pit constructed along Hunters Hill lot line; - Private properties being removed from ALR along Hunters Hill lot line;




AD RATES: 1/8 (3 col. x 3 1/2”) ............ $154/ad 1/4 (3 col. x 7” or 7 col. x 3”) .... $298/ad 1/2 (6 col. x 7” or 3 col. x 14”) ... $550/ad Full Page (6 col. x 14”) ..... $992/ad

In addition to researching and studying the land itself, Hunters Hill has been actively listening to the desires and interests of Summerland residents. And we will continue to encourage informed community dialogue going forward.


As Hunters Hill works toward the eventual drafting of a Neighbourhood Plan, broad-based community conversations will become more and more important. We will still be doing our part to listen, and we will also be providing future updates and information.

Heat advance to lacrosse provincials by Emanuel Sequeira Black Press

A three-goal second period helped the Penticton Heat bantam B lacrosse team advance to provincials. It wasn’t easy for the Heat against the North Okanagan Legends in Summerland Wednesday night. After earning a 5-1 victory in Armstrong on June 25, the Heat seemed to take their opponent for granted, according to coach Cliff Shortreed, who tried to warn them not to lose the game. The team won 5-4, but trailed 2-1 after the first period. “We came out flat, it was bad,” said Shortreed, adding that the win in Armstrong was among their best efforts. The second period ended up being a different story. “They played one of their best periods in a long time,” said Shortreed.

Offence came from Aiden Canada with two goals, Jace Canada, Carson Shortreed and Ethan Finlayson with one each. The final period was mediocre in Shortreed’s opinion. The teams traded goals and then with five minutes remaining, the Legends were handed a five-minute major. “They still didn’t give up,” he said. “They scored shorthanded to make it

5-4. We basically rode it out.” Shortreed told his players that there is no guarantee that provincials, being held in Delta July 19 to 21, was going to be any easier. One of the things that the Heat coach has stressed is discipline. During the series, they had to sit one player for a period after taking a bad penalty. “The kids came up with the team rule that if you are

undisciplined, you sit out a period,” he said. “Same thing goes for being late.” The Heat are slowly improving at controlling their emotions. It’s a young group (aged 12 to 14) that Shortreed coaches, with three returning players and three who were promoted from peewee. Between their series with the Legends, the Heat competed in Cranbrook’s Chris Watson tournament

and earned silver. “We had a great tournament,” said Shortreed. “I’m very proud of them.” The Heat’s peewee team has a play down in Merritt on Saturday. If they win, they advance to provincials in Kamloops July 10 to 14. The novice level doesn’t have provincials, but that Heat team is traveling to Burnaby for the Jack Crosby Tournament held July 4 to 7.
