John Arendt Summerland Review

Chad Lybrand negotiates one of the corners during the Giant’s Head Freeride longboarding event on the weekend. The event, held on Giant’s Head Mountain, drew around 200 participants from around the world. The paved path on the mountain is considered one of the best places for longboarding.

Despite some harsh penalties for impaired driving, some tipsy motorists continue to get behind the wheel, putting themselves and others on the road at risk. Cpl Bruce Haley of the Summerland RCMP detachment said police receive numerous reports each day of erratic driving in the community and on Highway 97. “We get them every day of every week and every month,” he said. Since the beginning of the year, those calls have included 38 reports of impaired drivers, as well as many other calls about speeding, bad lane changes or other unsafe behaviour. A total of 18 motorists have been changed, either under criminal charges or under the provincial immediate roadside prohibition legislation. Haley said the impaired drivers have been out at all hours of the day or night. One July morning at 6 a.m., police stopped a motorist on Highway 97, driving between 130 and 140 kilometres an hour on a road with a speed limit of 100 km/h. Other impaired drivers have been stopped and charged at 2:30 p.m., police say. On July 29, an impaired driver of a motorhome, who was refused service at a liquor store, was later stopped and did not provide a breath sample. He received a 90-day driving prohibition and his motorhome was impounded for 30 days. While some of the impaired drivers stopped by police are older motorists with ingrained habits, others are young drivers, in their teens and early 20s. The strong messages against drinking and driving and stiff penalties have been in place for many years. See IMPAIRED Page 6

Summerland tops in study Quality of life factors examined in provincial report by John Arendt A comparison of B.C. communities puts Summerland near the top in terms of several socioeconomic factors.

The study of 77 communities, prepared by B.C. Stats, places Summerland’s overall socioeconomic index ranking second in the province, just behind West Vancouver-Bowen Island. In several of the individual categories, Summerland was ahead of all

communities. The Regional SocioEconomic Index place Summerland in second place. The indicators in the study were the Index of Human Economic Hardship, the Index of Crime, the Index of Health Problems and the Index of

Education Concerns. Two other indicators, Children at Risk and Youth at Risk, were also included. The economic hardship category examined the number of those receiving economic assistance. The crime index examined property crimes, violent crimes and other

criminal activity. The health index looked at numerous physical and mental health factors including infant mortality, life expectancy at birth and teen pregnancy rates, as well as suicide and homicide statistics. See REPORT Page 2

The education figures examined graduation rates and post-secondary education, as well as achievement of those within the school

system. “When viewed together, these indices provide a summary measure of the relative successes and challenges across all regions of the prov-

ince,” the study stated. “The indices are intended only to flag regions that may be experiencing higher levels of socio-economic

stress relative to neighbouring areas. By themselves they don’t tell us why a particular community or region is doing poorly or well, but rather form

a necessary first step in determining the causal factors underlying the observed conditions.” Arlene Fenrich, president of the Summerland Chamber

of Commerce, said the report can help to promote the community. “We hope investors and business owners will take note of these facts about our com-

munity,” she said. “We recognize how important measurements of this kind are when business owners are considering opening a new establishment or relocating a business and employees to a new community.” Christine Petkau, manager of the chamber, said the report and Summerland’s standing can be used to help promote the community. “These are the kinds of things that attract people to the community,” she said. Despite the positive report, the downtown businesses have been struggling in recent years and there are still vacant buildings along Main Street and Victoria Road. “The fact that we have some gaps on Main Street is problematic,” Petkau said. She added that the quality of life factors in the report and the idyllic setting will help to bring people to the community. “We are the town authors in the last 100 years have created,” she said. While the study paints a positive picture of Summerland, Mayor Janice Perrino said it does not show all aspects of the community. “It does not tell our true economic state,” she said. “Our downtown has struggled over the years. We are still lacking horribly in affordable housing.” In addition, she said it is a struggle for the municipality to take on various infrastructure projects because of the costs involved. She added that report should serve as an encouragement to the community, since it identifies some of Summerland’s strengths. “We can take a look at what we’re doing well and how to maintain it,” she said. “We have to make sure we are on the path of securing a good, healthy longterm future.”

Accident aftermath

Police, firefighters and paramedics were called when a truck struck the glass wall and the window at McDonald’s on Prairie Valley Road at Highway 97 in Summerland. There were no injuries.

Truck crashes at McDonald’s A single vehicle accident on Thursday afternoon left windows broken, but no more significant damage when a truck struck a glass wall at the McDonald’s restaurant on Prairie Valley Road in Summerland.

The accident occurred around 3:40 p.m. when the truck accelerated on Prairie Valley Road near Highway 97. Police said the accelerator may have been jammed, resulting in the accident.

There was no structural damage to the restaurant. While the glass wall and the outer panes of two windows were broken, the rest of the building was unaffected. The driver of the truck, a 74-year-old

The hot and dry summer weather has led to a fire ban throughout the Kamloops Fire Centre. The ban took effect on Thursday, Aug. 1, when the danger rating was high, with a few scattered pockets where the rating was extreme. The ban covers all provincial parks, crown lands and private lands, but does not apply within the boundaries of local governments. Melissa Welsh, fire information officer with the Kamloops Fire Centre, said the ban was issued because of the hot and dry summer weather. “We put it in place to prevent or decrease the number of human-caused fires,” she said. Normally, half of


A public service message from Bell, Jacoe & Company

Real Estate Fraud When your lawyer asks you for identification, don't be upset; he or she is protecting your property. More and more cases of fraudulent real estate transactions are being encountered and as a result more precautions are being taken to ensure that the true owners are the ones actually dealing with the title. The BC registration system is different from Ontario's and is not as susceptible to real estate fraud, however, it can and does happen here. Lenders in Ontario such as the Chartered Banks have been requiring that lawyers have mortgage clients produce two types of identification when signing up a mortgage for some time now. This has now become Canada-wide. In Summerland, we have the luxury of personally knowing most of our clients. That small town benefit doesn't unfortunately fit in our increasingly complicated world. Even though we know who you are, the financial institutions will still require that we take copies of your ID when you come in for legal services, so get that ID ready.

all wildfires in B.C. are caused by human activity. This year, 72 per cent of wildfires have been caused by human activity. Human-caused wildfires can divert resources and crews from responding to naturally occurring fires. While the campfire ban is in place, campers may still use cooking stoves fueled by gas, propane or briquettes or a portable campfire apparatus as long as the

flame is no higher than 15 centimetres. Those violating the ban could be issued a ticket for $345. Anyone who causes a wildfire through arson or carelessness could be fined up to $1 million, spend up to three years in prison and be held accountable for associated firefighting costs. The Summerland Fire Department will be issuing its own fire ban during the period of the regional ban.

IS THE HORSE IN FRONT OF YOUR CART? We hear a lot of talk and advice in respect of your investments, with tired catch phrases like; “buy and hold;” “don’t panic and sell low;” “stay the course the markets will recover” and on and on, they chant. We hear this simple question not at all; “Why are you investing?” Why are you investing? For what purpose are you struggling to save while your disposable income continues to shrink? Is it for the obvious reasons like retirement or purchasing a home or for a holiday or to create a legacy? There is a belated growing awareness amongst our regulatory authorities, investors and financial pundits, that the above question needs to be addressed and explored in depth before you place your funds into the hands of an advisor or banking institution, with a faint hope that the funds will be nurtured and grown to your satisfaction and to suitably satisfy your needs. Please spend some time with the help of a financial coach / advisor who considers it a simple necessity to start or continue moving down the road on your life-journey with the horse placed in front of the cart, not behind it! Determine to explore and understand your saving options. Design your financial future by working with your coach to paint a picture of your retirement. Learn what sort of investor you are. How risk-averse are you? Does your retirement picture demand a lot financially or is it modest and in sync with your current and planned economic activity? Do you really understand the relationship between risk and return? What are your short-term, medium-term and long-term needs? What is your time-frame? How soon do you wish to move into your next phase, whether it be full retirement or simply a change in pace? Once you develop a fair understanding of what your financial future should look like, whether you are now in the accumulation, the preservation or the distribution phase, you can then more easily plot a course to ensure you progress through your current phase towards your next phase in accordance with your wishes and designs; with your goals and values in mind. Not to forget; with your current budget in mind, or as I prefer to call it; your spending plan in mind. A good coach / advisor should insist that you understand the investment being proposed. Don’t ever feel inadequate if you do not understand. The investing world is becoming more complex daily and many advisors themselves don’t really understand what they are suggesting you use as a wealth accumulation / preservation product! In any event your investment needs could and should be adequately addressed with standard and easily understood products and solutions. I have spent over forty years in the financial services profession, with the past twelve years dedicated to the financial coaching / planning and advising role. I am a consummate believer in the financial life planning process which is considerably more meaningful and satisfying to complete than the standard financial planning exercise. I am contracted with a highly reputable managing general agent firm as an independent advisor which enables me to draw upon that firm’s extensive resources for your benefit. Please feel free to chat about this personal opinion of mine if you believe it bears some resemblance to your situation and your opinion.

our pick

A glowing report A recent study, prepared by B.C. Stats, shows what many Summerlanders have known for years: This is a good place in which to live. The study examined several socio-economic factors and placed Summerland in second place out of nearly 80 B.C. communities, just behind West Vancouver. Factors including health, education and the crime rate were examined. Put simply, when it comes to quality of life, Summerland excels. We do not have the problems of poverty, crime, health problems and education concerns to the same degree as in some other B.C. communities. While the figures are impressive, it is important to remember that this report does not tell the full story. The report examines each community’s rankings, but not the reasons why a specific community has done well or poorly. Also, while the factors which enhance the quality of life in Summerland are good, our economy does not show the same strength. Many businesses, especially in the downtown area, face ongoing struggles. Some have closed their doors. Housing is expensive and jobs are scarce. Without a robust business sector and the revenue it generates, Summerland will have an increasingly difficult time keeping up with the costs of maintaining the community. Eventually, unless the economy improves, it will take a toll on the quality of life factors. Summerland’s ranking in this study can work effectively to help market the community. Efforts are already being made to use lifestyle as a way to attract individuals and businesses to Summerland. At the same time, a stronger economy is needed if Summerland is to have a good quality of life in the years to come.

Throughout the summer, a variety of hockey camps are held at the Summerland Arena, bringing players from around the region and across the country. The camps serve to draw players and their families to Summerland for a week or two at a time. They are also helping to prepare a new generation of players as they work to excel on the ice.

B.C. aboriginal progress fragile VICTORIA – The ceremonies have become common at the B.C. legislature. Government officials and aboriginal leaders gather to celebrate resource sharing agreements that allow economic development in areas that need employment but are hampered by a century of uncertainty and dispute over treaties, or lack Tom Fletcher thereof. This approach emerged a decade ago with forest agreements. The B.C. Liberal government bought back timber cutting licences from big forest firms and made them available for community forests and aboriginal communities who claimed the areas as their traditional territories. Recently the approach was extended to mining revenues and water licence fees paid by private power developers. These are substantial steps forward for the only province in Canada in treaty limbo. A 2010 sharing deal worth more than $30 million in royalties for the Mount Milligan copper-gold mine north of Prince George helped the McLeod Lake Indian Band recover from the pine beetle and forestry slump that devastated its business base. After many years of struggle, Mount Milligan expects to go into production this year.  Another agreement with Kamloops-area commun-

ities shared revenues from an expanded Afton mine. Perhaps the most ambitious agreement was concluded in March of this year when the government signed a deal with the Tahltan Nation for mining and hydroelectric development in remote northwestern B.C. The deal clears the way for a major extension of the BC Hydro grid to power the Tahltan village of Iskut and also the Red Chris metal mine, opening up the region to other mining and hydro potential as well. To get that deal, the province put up $20 million last year to buy back Shell Canada’s coalbed gas leases in the Klappan region, headwaters of the Nass, Skeena and Stikine Rivers. Those leases had become a target of international protest. Even after these expensive concessions, it would be an error to conclude that all is well between the Tahltan and the province. Stikine MLA Doug Donaldson questioned Aboriginal Relations Minister John Rustad on this point during the recent legislature session. The Tahltan Central Council was pleased about shared decision-making on resource projects, until they found out that B.C. had handed the environmental assessment of a new open-pit coal mine over to the federal government. The proposed mine is in the Klappan, known around the world as the Sacred Headwaters. Rustad said shared decisionmaking deals such as the Tahltan agreement do not cover activities of the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office.

Whether the review of that coal mine is federal, provincial or combined, it requires extensive consultation with affected parties. That’s great, but all that goodwill could evaporate quickly if a coal mine ends up getting a permit despite Tahltan objections. Rustad’s Nechako Lakes constituency is also a focal point for oil and gas pipeline proposals. Donaldson highlighted another problem. Last year the government signed a reconciliation agreement with the Gitanyow First Nation near Terrace, one of many communities struggling to get through the B.C. treaty negotiation process. That agreement included a joint land-use plan. Then the Environmental Assessment Office asked the Gitanyow for its input on proposed gas pipelines through its territory, to feed the government’s liquefied natural gas plans. Again, the joint  landuse  plan has no provision for pipelines. The Gitanyow hereditary chiefs wrote to the B.C. government in July, threatening to go to court over the pipeline proposal and questioning the value of their hard-won reconciliation agreement. Resource revenue sharing agreements and shared  landuse  plans are well-intentioned and represent real progress. But these situations show how fragile they are.

bad apples The number of student suspensions in Summerland over the past school year is disturbing. Of the 31 major suspensions issued by the Okanagan Skaha School District, 13 involved Summerland Secondary School students. While the total number of suspensions in the school district showed a decrease from a year earlier, the Summerland figure is cause for concern.

Longboarding risky on Solly Road Dear Editor: I commend the organizers of the Giant’s Head Freeride longboarding event on the August long weekend, for I think they must have taken all the neces-

sary safety precautions to run a safe and exciting three days of competition. Unfortunately it is after the day’s racing the potential problems arise. Like revellers after

a concert seeking the afterparty, the longboarders appear to want to keep that downhill thrill going. The temptation seems too great to resist (and it is almost all downhill from the

mountain) for these individuals not to race down to Rotary Beach by the lake. Their chosen route looks to be Solly Road, a public road shared by vehicles and themselves at the

same time. Singularly, or in groups of two, three or even more, they streak down the road in the late afternoon at speeds of 50, 60 or maybe even as much as 70 kilometres an

hour, followed by support cars, vans and small buses containing individuals with arms hanging out of windows and sunroofs, clutching cameras to video the ride. Just before the sharp S turn on Solly Road, Gillespie Road enters Solly below a fairly steep grade to the hill. The last thing a motorist turning left to go uphill on Solly expects to see rapidly

approaching them is an individual zipping along at breakneck speed with no brakes, wearing maybe a helmet and maybe gloves as safety gear. Visibility at the corner is not the best to start with and an apparition suddenly barreling towards them is a recipe for disaster. As is often said, someone is going to get killed out there.

These ladies did something in the 1930s that we’ll soon be able to do, too. They took the bus to Penticton. It would have been a bumpy, dusty ride over the winding dirt road in those days. White and Thornthwaite Taxi and Transfer in Lower Summerland provided the bus service between Summerland and Penticton and used the same vehicle as the local school bus. While we’re not sure what the bus fare to Penticton was at that time, some records indicate that a taxi ride to Kelowna could cost almost $3.

Socialism isn’t just a word Dear Editor: Re: NDP soul search going nowhere (B.C. Views, Aug. 1) A significant aspect of NDP post-election soul searching, following its catastrophic defeat by the forces of free enterprise, will have to be coming to terms with the need to move the party further to the centre, away from its ideological far left-wing base. While the federal NDP appears to have decided  to delete references to  “socialism”  from its guiding party preamble to make it more palat-

able politically and competitive electorally, merely removing  socialism  as a founding principle, without jettisoning its politically outdated doctrine,  will not convince Canadians that the NDP is anything  but a socialist party.   Confronted with the political reality of the concept of socialism proving  itself to be an  abysmal failure throughout the world,  being replaced by  more  free enterprise,  less  government and less social engineering, the ques-

tion naturally arises as  to whether  B.C.’s NDP party will be able to “jump over its own ideological shadow” and  abandon  its traditional stand on the  principles of democratic socialism, as defined in the B.C.  provincial NDP constitutional  preamble: “The New Democratic Party believes that social, economic and political progress in Canada can only be assured by the application of democratic socialist principles to government and the administra-

tion of public affairs ... including, where necessary, the extension of the principle of social ownership.” Stripped of its defining political raison d’être, NDP soul searching to remain a legitimate electoral contender in the province would make it a journey of heading somewhere into the future  without the benefit of a road map and without a clear sense of its destination ...  always carrying the baggage of its political past.  E.W.

Dear Editor: Last Wednesday I delivered a white three-year-old selfcleaning GE stove to a friend’s home in the Glenfir School area. I didn’t realize at the time that my friend was not going to be home so I put the stove on their patio outside their door with the intention of coming back later to install it. Some time over the next day or so, someone thinking that it was a discarded appliance took the stove from the patio.

The loss of this stove has created a hardship and hard feelings between my friend and I. Neither of us is able to afford the cost of replacing it. If you are the person or persons who removed the stove, would you please return it no questions asked. You can call Mark at 250-488-7124 and I will even come and pick it up. No harm done. Please do the right thing. Mark Dicer Summerland

bringing the total cost to $600. This amount does not include higher insurance premiums. For the second incident within five years, there is a seven-day driving prohibition, a possible seven-day vehicle impoundment and a $300 fine. Impound and towing fees can top $230. The total costs, including the $250 licence reinstatement fee, is $780. The third incident within five years results in a 30-day driving prohibition, a 30-day vehicle impoundment, a $400

fine and potential referral to remedial programs. Vehicle and impound fees are $680 or more. The total cost comes to $1,330. Those who register a Fail, or a blood alcohol reading of more than 0.08 and those who refuse a breath test will receive a 90-day driving prohibition, a 30-day vehicle impoundment, a $500 fine and potential referral to remedial programs. The total comes to $1,430. A reinstated driver’s licence is valid for two years, not the

usual five years. If a driver is required to enrol in the Responsible Driver Program, the cost is $880 plus GST. Those who are required to get an ignition interlock device installed in their vehicles must pay an administrative fee of $150. The total costs of the interlock, including installation and monthly monitoring fees, can top $1,700 for one year. “To be caught for impaired driving can cost the driver between $4,000 and $5,000 from start to finish,” Haley said.

Less water needed for longer lawn Too many of us look out at our lawn and are inclined to think it’s too long! So in this heat, we reluctantly trot out the lawn mower and start cutting. Well, there’s actually good reason to let it go.

an residents use 675 litres of water per person, per day – this average spikes to 1000 litres in the summer, used mostly on our lawns. We can save 500 to 1,500 litres a week by letting our grass grow a little bit longer.

By keeping our grass two to three inches tall we help conserve water. Longer grass allows the roots to be shaded so they are better able to hold water. It also slows the evaporation of water from the soil, making it work more effectively. In turn, our lawns need less water and need it less often. There’s less freshwater available in the Okanagan than almost anywhere in Canada. Yet, on average, Okanag-

Water works best when grass clippings are left as mulch on your lawn. The clippings provide nutrients, reducing the need for fertilizer. They also help retain moisture, requiring less water and reducing evaporation. And don’t forget to aerate the lawn in early spring or fall. This will improve water penetration and help your lawn grow full and green.

Don’t mow, let it grow

Leave clippings as mulch

One inch a week will do

Most lawns need only 2.5

cm (one inch) of water per week – and after a good rain, not even that much. Watering too much promotes shallow roots, weed growth, disease and fungus. Watering deeply and less often promotes deep, healthy root growth. If you’re watering deeply but not seeing results the problem may be inadequate topsoil. Try top dressing with half an inch of compost, then over-seeding for a thick vigorous lawn.

Summerland Funds needed for roadwork students suspended by John Arendt

by Joe Fries Black Press Fewer students are being sent home from class. A total of 31 major suspensions lasting three or more days were handed out during the 2012-13 session, down from 42 in each of the two previous years, according to new data from the Okanagan Skaha School District. Just over half of last year’s suspensions were drug-related, and just under half were imposed on students from Summerland Secondary School. Black Press obtained the statistics through a freedom of information request. It’s unclear what’s behind the overall decrease, although the district administrator responsible for discipline thinks it could be the result of principals building better relationships with students. “The better you know kids, the less of those kinds of (suspendable) mistakes they make,” said director of instruction Don MacIntyre. Thirteen of the suspensions were handed to students at Summerland Secondary School, seven were issued at Princess Margaret Secondary, and six originated at Penticton Secondary School. Also on the list were ConnectED, McNicoll Park Middle and Summerland Middle schools. Sixteen of the suspensions related to drugs, five involved weapons, and four had to do with property offences. The rest involved fighting, weapons, poor behaviour, starting a fire or pulling a fire alarm. MacIntyre is notified whenever a school issues a three-day suspension, and he then reports it to the school board at an in camera meeting. If it’s a second offence, the student may be referred to a district discipline committee with the power to issue an even longer suspension.

Without grant funding, the water separation and resurfacing work on Garnett Valley Road will be put on hold. The project is the next phase in Summerland’s water system separation work, which is splitting the municipal water system into domestic and irrigation water streams. The work on Garnett Valley Road and in the Jones Flat area has an estimated cost of $4 million. Don Darling, director of works and utilities for the municipality, said a grant application last year was denied early this spring. The municipality will apply for the funding once more this year, but without a grant, the project cannot proceed. “If we don’t get the grant, we don’t know how long it will be

before we get water separation,” he said. “If we get the funding next year, it will go ahead next year.” The design work for the water system upgrade is already in place. Darling said there is no timeline for the completion of the next phase of the water system separation work. After the water line separation work is completed, the municipality will be able to get the road resurfaced.

For years, residents along Garnett Valley Road have complained about the condition of the road, which has numerous potholes and rough sections. In July, council chose not to proceed with road overlays and intermittent patching on Garnett Valley Road. The proposal, at an estimated cost of $63,606.50, would have provided some relief for motorists on the road, but the work would then

have to be torn up when the water system upgrade proceeds. The works and utilities department identified nine capital projects for the community to undertake. The combined cost came to $1.254 million, but the municipality had $150,000 approved for sidewalks, drainage and paving upgrades for 2013. As a result, two projects worth $59,000 were approved for this year, with the

remaining money to go to next year’s projects. Mayor Janice Perrino said funding these projects becomes difficult for the municipality. While the total municipal budget for 2013 was $28,656,114, much of the money has been set aside earlier. “By the time all the bills are paid, we have $675,000 left to pay for sidewalks, roads and extra projects,” she said. “That’s all we’ve got left.”

organizers are hoping to raise $20,000 from the event. At present, they have received around $5,000 in donated prizes and another $3,000 in other donations from the community. Depending on the level of support and participation this year, the tournament could become a regular feature. “If we can pull this off, it’s going to be an annual event,” Johnson said. “I was totally amazed by the response from the community. Now it’s a matter of getting the golfers.” Those who wish to register should contact Johnson at 778-516-0081 or email GraceQuest@

pede. Matt Darmody, organizer of the event, said 30 bull riders from B.C., Alberta and Australia are expected to participate on Aug. 17. The riders are part of the Bull Riders Canada circuit. The Summerland event is part of a Western Canada circuit. Darmody said the event will have something for all ages. “It’s family-oriented for the whole day,” he said. “People don’t

regularly see bulls in Summerland. I think it’s going to be a big hit.” He added that the animals in the show are treated well and develop a good relationship with their trainer. “You get really attached to the bulls,” he said. “They’re like your best friend. They want to do their best for you.” The bull riding stampede will take place at the Summerland Rodeo Grounds Aug. 17 at 5 p.m. Gates open at 3 p.m.

Weather records broken during July by Tom Fletcher Black Press

Not a drop of rain was recorded at Vancouver and Victoria airports during July, the first time that has happened since Environment Canada began keeping rainfall records in 1937. Much of the rest of B.C. also had an unusually dry month, with numerous local records falling. Williams Lake airport recorded 1.6 mm of rain during the entire month, while communities in the northwest had only occasional showers. Provincial bans on all open burning including campfires took effect Thursday in the Kamloops and Coastal fire districts, covering most of southern and central B.C. The ban covers coastal areas except Haida Gwaii and the designated “fog zone” along the west coast of Vancouver Island. Fire bans apply

to open fires of any size, including those with permits, as well as industrial burning, fireworks, tiki torches and burn barrels.

Camp stoves that use propane or briquettes are still allowed. The ban took effect as rain showers were forecast for many

areas of B.C. The B.C. government’s wildfire management branch says lightning is expected over the next week in the

coastal region. Provincial fire restrictions cover all private and Crown land, including parks, but not

within the boundaries of local governments that have fire departments, which establish local restrictions.

Matheson winner of Ultraman

While Craig Percival of Australia led the Ultraman Canada competition on Saturday and Sunday, David Matheson’s performance in the run component on Monday earned him the win. Matheson, 42, of Canada, ran the 84.4-kilometre route from Princeton to Summerland with a time of 7:04:13. His total time for the three-day ultraendurance triathlon was 21:47:47. The three-day event began with a 10-kilometre swim and a 144.8-kilometre bike ride on Saturday, followed by a 273.5-kilometre bike ride on Sunday and the run on Monday. The course ended in Memorial Park in Summerland. A total of 29 athletes from around the world, ranging in age from 29 to 60, participated in the event. All but two finished.

Summerland Review Thursday, August 8, 2013







Summer programs abound As I write this article we have just had an amazing stretch of weather during July but the rain has returned for the long weekend. As I have mentioned before, summer is my favourite part of the year. I love seeing our lakefront parks and beaches filled with families using all the amenities. Whether it is the sailing or power boats on the lake, the busy water park, the picnics in the gazebo or the people on the docks or pier at Rotary Beach, the smiling faces never get old. Summer programs continue to keep the kids busy with sailing lessons, tennis lessons, art programs and the ever popular

Leisure Times

Dale MacDonald day camps. With the August long weekend we will have just completed two major events that are not for the faint of heart. The Ultraman triathlon finished in Memorial Park, an event that includes a swim in Skaha lake, a bike to Princeton and a run to Summerland. Definitely not an event for your everyday athlete but

my compliments to Steve Brown for all the work he does to make the event happen. As many of you know, we just hosted the Ride the Giant longboarding event at Giant’s Head Park. This annual event brings riders from as far away as Costa Rica, Columbia and all over North America and has been filmed by the Discovery Channel. Andrew Monaghan and his team have done an amazing job of hosting the over 200 competitors in the event. My congratulations to Summerlander Randy Huber and

his Pinnacles for winning the soccer championship this year. It seems like just yesterday that Randy’s dad Barry, Bob Leslie and I were coaching in mini soccer. Also congratulations to the women Pinnacles for winning the Provincials. At the arena Greg Holst has returned with his Bulldogs Hockey Camp. Greg who used to play in the New York Rangers organization and coached for years in Austria has now been doing his camp for almost 20 years. The Bulldog Camp will be followed by the Cyclone Taylor’s McGillivray Hockey

Training Camp that has also been successful for a number of years. For something a little different we have the annual Horseshoe Tournament at Memorial Park on Aug. 10 and 11 and for the adventuresome, Bull Riding at the Rodeo Grounds on Aug. 17. Lots to do in this amazing summer paradise! Dale MacDonald has been Summerland’s Director of Parks and Recreation for the last 22 years and in his sporting past has won provincial championships in four different sports.

Ask Your Dentist...


I had some dental work done in Mexico, I thought they did a really good job but my crown fell out Dr. Cindee Melashenko and I had to pay to have it re-done here, is that common? Anonymous This is a great discussion and I am happy that you felt comfortable to write to me. It is possible to have dentistry done while you are on holiday. However, a dental vacation, although appealing, leaves you with no one with whom to follow up with if and when problems arise. I’ve had quite a few patients over the years that have had major dental work (implants, crowns, bridges) done outside of North America and are left with a difficult decision of what to do when their dental work fails: pay to return to the dentist who did the work and possibly have it re-done for less or pay to have it done here and maintained here. Although nothing lasts forever, with proper planning quality dentistry should be a good investment when done well. In my opinion, the best advantage of having a relationship with a dentist and a hygienist locally is that we warranty what we do and are here to guide you in keeping the health of your mouth ideal for years to come. We value our relationship with you and expect to see you regularly. 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!

New shows open Two new shows open at the Summerland Art Gallery next Thursday, Aug. 15 with a reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Deifying the Diva will be in the Main Gallery and Crossing Borders will be in the Adams Room. Deifying the Diva features oil paintings and bronze sculptures by Lynden Beesley and Alexandra Edmonds. Crossing Borders features a felt and wool display by the Desert Sage Spinners and Weavers Guild. The Desert Sage Spinners and Weavers Guild are a Guild of more than 60 members, from Summerland to Osoyoos, who use fibre as their medium. Learning together, they employ both traditional and innovative techniques. Over the years, for many of them, their hobby has become their art. They are spinners, weavers, knitters, garment makers, the list is endless. They craft practical items, whimsical ones, wherever their creativity takes them. They have dyed, spun, woven, felted, knitted almost any material possible, from silk, wool, paper, plastic bags, old fabric, wire... How far will their imagination take them? They do not know, but they are still far from running out of ideas, enthusiasm, or creativity. You are invited to drop by the Art Gallery at 9533 Main Street and view their work. The Art Gallery is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Art Happening is a new show currently at the Shatford Centre in Penticton. The exhibiting artists are all members of the Federation of Canadian Artists and you will find a wide range of media on view: watercolours, oils, encaustics, acrylics and mixed media among them. Gallery hours are Monday to Friday 9 a.m to 5 p.m.

Arts Palette

David Finnis Branching Out is a solo show featuring works by Barb Hofer. This show at the Leir House in Penticton is a tribute to trees. Branching Out is a mixed-media collection of her paintings using watercolour, acrylic, collage, and lately, encaustic. Barb is always open to new ways of representing her art and the show spotlights her journey of discovery. Trees have always been a focus and a challenge and this


show depicts trees in the Okanagan landscape, along with the creatures, fruits, and flowers that flourish there. Seasonal changes celebrate the wonderful Okanagan Valley. The show runs until Aug. 31. You can view the show Tuesdays to Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. 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 or call 250-404-3225. and The Arts Palette is written by David Finnis, Publicity Chair and President of the Summerland Community Arts Council, P.O.
