Harp performance

Mark Brett Black Press

Lise Fisher of Summerland plucks her harp strings during the warmup for her performance at the Penticton Kiwanis Music Festival at the Penticton United Church Thursday morning. The festival begin in 1926 and features a wide range of artistic disciplines including voice, dance and instrumental music. It runs until the first week of May.

What started out as a proposed walking and cycling path between Lowertown and Trout Creek, called the Lakeside Trail, has now grown into a much grander vision. There is now talk of The Trail of the Okanagans, potentially stretching from Sicamous to Osoyoos. Paul Barber, representing the Summerland Rotary Club explained that initially the club was looking for a significant project to become involved with. A fellow Rotarian, Don Gemmell sold them on the idea of the Lakeside Trail. Before too long word got out and other groups and individuals started showing interest in the plan. “All of a sudden this vision started to develop. Let’s not think small. Let’s think of the possibility of making a real impact… something that will support economic activity in our community,” said Barber. Gemmell said this is not just a vision shared by this group alone. “We had the City of Kelowna visit us and say that they too have the same vision. They brought a map of a pathway that runs from the Shuswap all the way to Osoyoos. Their viewpoint is that it’s very rare that all the communities in the Okanagan region actually get together to do something constructive like this. It is very exciting.” He went on to say that the local steering group is focussing on Summerland, south, with the city of Penticton also becoming an active part of the committee. See TRAIL Page 2

Information session planned by John Arendt

It will be a time for questions and answers about Summerland’s proposed growth plan as the municipality will hold a town hall meeting early in April. The meeting will take place on Monday, April 7 from 6 to 9 p.m.

in the high school gym. The town hall meeting will begin with a 15-minute presentation about the plan by municipal planner Ian McIntosh. Following the presentation, members of council will each have five minutes to share their thoughts about

the Urban Growth Plan. Coun. Bruce Hallquist and Coun. Lloyd Christopherson, who both own land in the affected area, will not be present. The two councillors have been absent from all other discussions and meetings about the plan.

Municipal administrator Tom Day said the statements from council members will help to address a concern which has been raised by the public. “People are saying they haven’t really heard from council,” Day said. The proposed

growth plan calls for the removal of 80.34 hectares of land from the Agricultural Land Reserve near the core of the community, while 91.7 hectares in the Prairie Valley area would be added to the land reserve. See PROPOSED Page 3

Trail would link Penticton and Summerland Continued from Page 1 “It has the potential, if we work together, to provide real economic benefit for our community.” Henry Sielmann with the Trans Canada Trail Society supports the idea. “There are models that tell you if you brand a trail, if you provide a certain level of collaboration, in a beautiful area, which this valley clearly is, people will come,” he said. He also explained that there is currently a registered gap in the Trans Canada Trail between Penticton and Summerland. The society would support anything that would help people get safely from the one community to the other. “This trail will certainly do it,” he

stated. Ian Lobb, a private citizen, is bringing experience to the table. He has spent a total of 15 years developing cycle tourism around the world. Lobb worked extensively with the trail system in Ontario, called The Water Front Trail. The project is a 740-kilometre trail that runs through 43 communities. Lobb said that tourism, now, is more about the experience and that there is exponential growth around cycling tourism specifically. He also said there will be a ripple effect because of the trail, which will bring new businesses and jobs to the Okanagan. “When this idea was first presented I thought it was

just brilliant and something this area needs.” It has been recommended that all of the loosely associated groups involved, form a society in order to move for-

ward. This process is in the works and the hope is to operate under the name, The Trail of the Okanagans. They have the support of the Regional District and the local Municipal-

ity, who have agreed to speak to the Ministry of Highways on their behalf, and have provided them with the engineered drawings required. Dan Ashton, MLA for the riding of Pen-

ticton, is supportive of the proposal made, to start with the short section between Trout Creek and Lakeshore Drive, as the first stage of the trail, and is lobbying on the group’s behalf. Funding for the trail will not come from local taxes, but rather from federal and provincial grants available, as well as from fundraising efforts and local business and individual support. Gemmell said there is no real time line for the project. “We would love

to put a shovel to it tomorrow, but we know it will take time to have people learn the vision. There is a high level of certainty if we are able to create this, that there will be significant economic benefits well into the next generation, for the Okanagan.” The first of many public information meetings, in the communities along the proposed trail, will be held in Summerland at the IOOF Hall, on Saturday, March 22, from 1 to 3 p.m.

Tourism to get new website Visitors to Summerland will have a comprehensive website, separate from the Chamber of Commerce, beginning in late April. Christine Petkau, manager of the Summerland Chamber, said the new site has a tentative launch date of April 28. The 80-page site will have comprehensive tourism information. “It will be a really good showcase for our town,” she said. At present, tourism information and information for chamber members are on the same site. The new site will allow tourists to find the information they need, without including business information. Meanwhile, the chamber’s site will also undergo a make-

Survival competition

The 902 Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron Summerland were among 40 air cadets from Oliver to Penticton competing in a Survival Competition in Peachland March 8 and 9. (From left to right) Flight Corporal (F/Cpl) Meaghan Vader, Warrant Officer First Class (WO1) Bryce Johnston, and Warrant Officer Second Class (WO2) Zachary Fitzpatrick help build a signal fire. Members of Penticton Search and Rescue flew over to judge the competition and also to practice their spotting skills.

Proposed growth plan now on hold Continued from Page 1 The removal of this agricultural land has generated strong opposition. At a public hearing on March 3, a petition with more than 2,600 signatures, including 1,200 from Summerlanders, was presented. The petition was in opposition to the land exchange. Mayor Janice Perrino said questions have been raised about why a new growth plan was needed. The existing growth plan, which put Summerland’s future growth in the Summerland Hills area and Rattlesnake Mountain, was established in 2008, in a 4-3 council decision. Once the Summerland Hills Golf Resort proposal was off the table, there was no other development proposal of similar scope. Perrino said the need for a new growth plan was determined by council 14 months ago. “All seven agreed the Urban Growth Area was not working and it’s not a good plan for the future,” she said. “This was nothing more than a no-growth plan.” Of the council members able to participate in discussions on the new plan, Coun. Peter Waterman has consistently voted against the new plan, because of concerns about the removal of agricultural land. After the council members have spoken at the town hall meeting, a question and answer session will follow. “There will be dialogue back and forth,” Day said. After the meeting, a public hearing on the proposed growth plan will be held on Tuesday, April 22 at 7 p.m., at a location to be determined.

The earlier hearing, held on March 3 in the Arena Banquet Room, filled the space. An estimated 50 people were locked out since the building was at capacity. As a result, council later opted to hold a new public hearing, with a town hall meeting in advance. The town hall meeting will take place on April 7 from 6 to 9 p.m. and the location has changed from the arena to the Summerland Secondary School gym. We’ve got the Tractor you’re looking for!

ture easier to use. The new chamber site is expected to be in place some time this summer, Petkau said. The chamber represents all Summerland businesses. It is the third lar-

gest chamber in the Thompson-Okanagan region, behind Kelowna and Kamloops, and it is one of the 25 largest in the province. There are more than 125 chambers in the BC network alone.

EDITORIAL

our pick

Regional benefits The Trail of the Okanagans, a proposed walking and cycling path, has great potential as part of a regional marketing strategy. Initially a proposed Summerland trail, the concept has grown to become a regional trail, extending from Sicamous to Osoyoos. It has gained support from many communities. Creating the trail will be a significant task, since there are many communities and regional districts involved. However, the potential benefits will outweigh any difficulties along the way. For tourism businesses, especially those close to the trail, the advantages are easy to see as travellers will stop in many places along the way. As a result, the trail must be seen as a benefit for the entire region rather than for any one community alone. The idea of cooperative regional marketing makes sense, especialy in an area such as the Okanagan, where there are many smaller communities. While each community will continue to take on its own individual tourism promotions, adding a regional component has the potential to reach many more people than individual efforts alone. A similar marketing strategy, on a smaller scale, is already in place locally as Summerland’s Bottleneck Drive wineries do much to promote themselves as a group. The cooperative marketing, in addition to each individual winery’s efforts, has helped to promote all member wineries. There are also some regional tourism marketing efforts already in place in the Okanagan. These showcase the valley as a whole, offering many options for visitors. Expanding on such efforts by adding valley-wide attractions and visitor opportunities has the potential to draw significant numbers of tourists.

An anti-bullying video created by five Summerland youths has attracted attention from beyond the community. The staged bullying incidents move the anti-bullying message beyond statements and pink shirt initiatives by challenging people to consider how they would respond and why. These are tough questions, but they need to be addressed if a lasting change is to be achieved.

Green machine gathers in B.C. VICTORIA – Canada’s sleek, imported green propaganda machine rolled into the capital last week for a couple of days of meetings. You wouldn’t have heard about it, because they didn’t stage any protests or press conferences. Instead they met quietly with selected reporters as well as politicians from both sides of the aisle. They didn’t invite Tom Fletcher me for some reason, but from what I can gather, it was a friendly networking session. When I speak of our U.S.directed environmental movement, many people still don’t know what I mean. They see the sign-waving on TV and assume it’s all spontaneous, driven by passionate volunteers. Nuke the Whales for Jesus, as we used to joke in the 1970s. It’s an industry now, and as with our automotive industry, Canada is a branch plant of the U.S. The Victoria event was an annual conference called Organizing for Change, sponsored by Tides Canada. Thanks mainly to the work of B.C. researcher Vivian Krause, this offshoot of the U.S. Tides Foundation now at least identifies itself while it pulls B.C.’s political strings. Organizing for Change currently includes Ecojustice, Greenpeace, Sierra Club B.C., ForestEthics Advocacy, Forest-

Ethics Solutions, Georgia Strait Alliance, Dogwood Initiative, Pembina Institute, West Coast Environmental Law, Wildsight and Seattle-based Conservation Northwest. Tides is itself a front for wealthy charitable foundations based mostly in Seattle and California, funded by billionaires who see “saving” B.C. as their personal eco-project. Their hired activists met with Environment Minister Mary Polak to discuss her justintroduced Water Sustainability Act. This was to demand heavy fees and choking regulations on water used for “fracking,” that nefarious gas drilling technology so demonized in fake documentaries and celebrity protests. Tides no longer attempts to hide its strategy of targeting energy development in B.C. and Alberta. Its tactics are well known, too. Environmentalists need high-profile wins, and the economic pain is best inflicted outside of the U.S., the biggest polluter in world history. Organizing for Change’s stated priorities for the year are the “last stand of the Great Bear Rainforest,” the “Sacred Headwaters” and the Water Sustainability Act. Professional protesters are mainly just taking credit for the 2012 buy-back of Shell’s coalbed gas licences around the headwaters of the Nass, Skeena and Stikine Rivers. Tahltan Central Council declared that territory theirs in 1910, and having pros roll in with slogans and graphics wasn’t exactly crucial to the outcome.

Their greatest marketing success so far is the Great Bear Rainforest, which is continually portrayed as being in peril from hunting, logging and of course, oil and gas development. One of the documents Krause unearthed is a 2008 plan entitled “Tar Sands Campaign Strategy 2.1” that has proven remarkably prophetic. As Greenpeace, Sierra and ForestEthics were negotiating the 2007 Great Bear land use plan, other network members were preparing to “raise the negatives” and market Alberta as a unique threat to planetary integrity. I’ve written before about the distortions and evasions required to present such a fossil fuel fairy tale. Suffice it to say that while we have busloads of protesters in B.C., you don’t see them in those benevolent petro-states Angola, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Venezuela, Kuwait or Algeria. They’re not saving the whole planet, just the safe and lucrative parts. And as I mentioned after the protester-staged Neil Young concert tour, it’s amazing how American oil and gas interests and Alaska oil tankers remain invisible to this sophisticated network. NDP environment critic Spencer Chandra Herbert met with the green machine too. He wants all of B.C.’s groundwater mapped and measured deep into the Earth’s crust. That should take a while. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

culls

The upcoming information meeting on Summerland’s proposed Urban Growth Plan is important as it will allow people to raise their concerns about the controversial plan. H oweve r, whether any opinions will change as the result of the question and answer format of the town hall meeting remains to be seen. The plan will set the direction for growth in Summerland for many years to come. As a result, it is important to study the issue carefully before forming an opinion, whether for or against the plan.

Much is understood about land swap Dear Editor: Congratulations to Summerland mayor and council for deciding not to decide just yet on their plan to apply to swap nonviable land for arable land. During an interview on CBC Radio’s Daybreak, Mayor

Janice Perrino stated that there is much that the public doesn’t understand and that extra time is needed to help us to understand. Here is what I do understand: 1. Local food production is becoming an increasingly

important issue worldwide. 2. We have ideal land in the core of Summerland to produce food. 3. Most of the population of Summerland are against the proposed swap, otherwise council would have nothing

to fear in holding a plebiscite this fall in conjunction with electing a new council. 4. Two councillors have been sitting on parcels of arable, serviced Agricultural Land Reserve land and could stand to benefit from the land

swap. 5. A questionnaire was faithfully filled in by many residents and skewed to fit the designs of council while hopefully pacifying the population. 6. The Summerland Hills land was removed from the ALR in 2005, citing

at the time that this land would not support food production. Some of the present council were party to that deal. The switch in opinion is disingenuous in the extreme. Where is the credibility? 7. Summerland residents are being

patronized at every turn but will not be fooled by this game of smoke and mirrors. I look forward with interest to hearing what it is that I don’t presently understand. Susanne Cooper Summerland

THE EARLY YEARS

Clean, clear and wet

March 22 is World Water Day, designated by the United Nations General Assembly in 1993 to celebrate freshwater and focus attention on the management of this important resource. As a town dedicated to agriculture, Summerland has always recognized the value of water. If you look closely at this photo, taken around 1910, you can see the network of flumes providing irrigation for the young orchards. With efficient management we will always have access to clean, clear water for ourselves and our crops. On March 22, raise a glass of the good stuff and celebrate the fact that you can.

Business owner concerned Council not listening

Dear Editor: I would like to applaud Erin Carlson and stop the land swap movement and publically voice my support of this endeavour. Awareness has been brought to the issue as well as compelling arguments against taking land out of the ALR. Many of the points that favour no land swap were actually listed by Council in their “Urban Growth Strategy Review.”Council needs to

focus on downtown revitalization. Without a vibrant downtown it is difficult to attract new families and businesses to Summerland, which ultimately should be the primary goal of all Summerlanders at this worrying stage of stalled growth. As stated in the “UGS Review,” Summerland has had a lower than average growth rate for some time and as we have large areas in the downtown core which are fully serviced

and underdeveloped, energy should be focused in that direction. It seems to me that Council is putting the cart before the horse in this whole initiative. Attention should only shift to developing areas outside the downtown core once we see a substantial turn-around in our growth of new residents and businesses. Felicity Stahl Concerned business owner and Summerland resident

Dear Editor: While in the gym this past Tuesday morning (March 11), I heard a piece of a short radio clip wherein Janice Perrino was saying that the people who are against the removal of the land from the ALR are “fear-mongering” and that what has come up is “just awful.” Also mentioned by the radio announcer is that the council has plans to hold another public meeting telling the citizens of Summerland why the mayor and council feel removing the land from the ALR is the right thing to do.

How can this be? Summerland citizens (well over 300 — many of whom weren’t admitted to the meeting because of numbers too large for the fire safety rules) were at the arena on March 3 having done their homework on this isue, citing facts and figures, pointing out the holes and misinformation distributed by the council and surely deserved to be listened to. How can the mayor have been listening to the facts and figures on March 3 given by honest, sincere citizens concerned for the future of their town? Surely had she been lis-

tening, she could never have labelled the opposition to this ALR removal as fear-mongering. Personally, I don’t think we need another meeting to explain the merits of taking prime agricultural land out of the ALR, and we have told the mayor and council loud and clear why not. The sad fact seems to be the mayor and council have lost the trust and goodwill of many of the town’s people, are acting against our wishes, aren’t listening to the citizens of Summerland and continue to insist on their own agenda. Gerri Davis Summerland

No more meetings needed

to the residents Dear Editor: I write in regard to the proposed Urban Growth Plan in Summerland. Mayor Perrino was patronizing at best during the March 10 council meeting, telling us how misinformed we are, and how if we have better information we will understand the need for the proposed plan. I attended the public hearing and heard much practical and factual information, offered by citizens of various ages and occupations, refuting the need to remove land from the ALR. I also heard educated assessments of the survey process, with specific doubts cast on the participation count and the interpretation of survey data. These doubts have in part stemmed from comments made by council when the Urban Growth Plan report was accepted in December 2013. We were told that participants chose densify the downtown core and protect the agricultural land as the major considerations in urban growth of our town. Exactly how densify in the

downtown was interpreted to mean increase the size of downtown, and protect agricultural land interpreted as build on this land, they will come remains a mystery to those of us who participated in the open house and survey processes. Mayor Perrino says what she heard from presenters at the public hearing were concerns about food and food security - a correct understanding, but quite limited. Mayor and council seem to be ignoring other serious points made by their citizens. Concerns and questions were expressed regarding conflict of interest in properties involved, support for our agricultural economy, continued growth in the hill areas, demographic research pertinent to urban growth, present availability of building lots, and how to draw new business and industry, as well as local food strategies. I look forward to further pub-

lic discussion of this matter.

Ask Your Dentist...

Q

During my last dental check up you asked me about how I slept. I’ve been thinking about it and realized I do wake up Dr. Cindee Melashenko a lot during the night and don’t feel very well rested, what should I do? Al

A

I’ve been asking questions of all my patients about sleep since it is so important for our health. Sleep apnea can increase your risk for heart attack and stroke and can drastically affect your energy and mood. To determine if you have sleep apnea you need to be tested. We offer a simple monitor that you can wear overnight and the results are interpreted online by a medical doctor. If you have severe sleep apnea, we refer you directly to your medical doctor for treatment (usually a CPAP machine). Some patients find that the CPAP machine is very uncomfortable and they or their spouse actually sleep worse with it. If you have mild to moderate sleep apnea, you may have the option of a simple mouth guard (specific for sleep apnea). The “mouth guard” simply moves your lower jaw forward to help open your airway. No noisy machine, no need for electricity, just insert the guard before sleep and your breathing is better (and your snoring is gone). Get tested today so you can start sleeping your way to better health!

They will join Arlene Fenrich of Edgy Petals, Thor Clausen of Bartlett Tree Experts, Maged Said of Mission Bottle Washing and Connie Denesiuk of Advocacy First. The board members were sworn in at the chamber’s Annual General Meeting on Tuesday.

Most of this year’s board members served on last year’s board. The only new member this year is Owens, while Darin Fair, a member of last year’s board, will not return this year. The chamber represents more than 800 Summerland businesses.

Chamber budget tops $300,000 The Summerland Chamber of Commerce will require more than $300,000 to provide its services as the voice of Summerland’s business community in 2014. On March 11, the chamber’s budget was presented at the annual general meeting. This year, the chamber expects to receive $301,575. The biggest portion of this will come from the municipality in the form of a $200,000 grant in aid. The grant in aid funding is unchanged from previous years. Provincial grants of $29,675 are anticipated. In 2013, provincial grants came to $24,570. Sales and function revenue are expected to bring an additional $57,500, down slightly from the $58,904 received in 2012. Rental income is forecast at $6,400, twice the amount received in 2013. The telephone directory is expected to bring in $8,000, down from $14,051 in 2013. In addition, the chamber received a Goods and Services Tax rebate of $22,031 last year. The rebate covers 2010 to 2012. A GST rebate is not anticipated for this year. Total expenses for the year are forecast at $320,175, resulting in a loss of $18,600.

COUNCIL REPORT The regular meeting of municipal council was held on March 10 in council chambers. Coun. Bruce Hallquist and Coun. Lloyd Christopherson were absent.

Video initiative

Five Summerland students worked on a video project with an anti-bullying message. From left are Ryan Antonovitch, Pierre Holmes, Colton Worts, Navi Raike and Teaghan Trewhitt.

Youths create anti-bullying video by Carla McLeod Special to the Review Five Summerland students have created a video about bullying which has been posted online. The video is called, Being More Than a Bystander. It was filmed in the back alleys of Summerland. With camera operators Pierre Holmes and Colton Worts well hidden, Teaghan Trewhitt proceeded to pretend to bully Navi Raike and Ryan Antonovitch. Since the video was posted on YouTube, the five have

been contacted by television, radio and newspapers, including Global TV, CBC Radio and The Province. The purpose of staging these events was to see how many people would intervene if they saw someone being bullied. “We had a speech given to us by Angus Reid, here at the school and he inspired us to make this video,” explained Holmes. “He was saying that you can wear a pink shirt, but is that really going to help if something were to occur? Would you do something about

it or would you just sit there in your pink shirt that says, stop bullying,” added Worts. The reactions they got from people on the street were mixed. “There were more people who turned a blind eye to it, than those who actually stopped to help,” said Holmes. Speaking about the people who did take action he said, “They were seen as a hero in our eyes.” It was also explained that there were some who stopped to help, but did not want to be featured in the video, resulting in some lost

footage. In regards to bullying in general, although it does still go on, “It’s gone down a bunch,” said Worts. This group also has plans for future endeavours. “We want to do more of these social experiments, like feeding the homeless, bringing awareness to racism and stuff like that,” Holmes

said. Their hope is that people will watch and share the videos they produce and subscribe to their channel on YouTube called ColourTV.

Council received the 2013 Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program report for information. The report is required under the terms of the provincial Climate Action Charter, which Summerland has signed. Under the provisions of the charter, the municipality must measure and report yearly greenhouse gas emissions and actions to reduce them. As of January, 2010, 178 B.C. municipalities have signed the Climate Action Charter. The charter requires participating communities to make a commitment to become carbon neutral in corporate operations by 2012, measure and report community greenhouse gas emissions and create complete, compact and more energy efficient communities.

Road closure supported

Council gave the first three readings to a bylaw closing the road and removing the highway dedication to an unnamed road adjacent to the new Okanagan Regional Library location at 9537 Main St. Because this road is within 800 metres of an arterial highway, the closure requires approval from the Ministry of Transportation before the final reading. Once the road closure is complete, municipal staff will arrange to transfer the closed portion of the road to the Okanagan Regional Library.

Financial plan adopted

The municipality’s five-year financial plan for 2014 to 2018 was given final reading.

In general terms, the Community Charter permits a municipality to close a road and remove the highway dedication. In order to complete this process, Council must adopt a Road Closure and Removal of Highway Dedication Bylaw and must advertise its intent to adopt the bylaw. Pursuant to Section 40 of the Community Charter, the District of Summerland gives notice of its intention to close to traffic that portion of the highway adjacent to Lot 19, Plan 5297 known as 9535 Main St. shown outlined in black on the sketch below, and to remove the dedication of that portion as highway. Bylaw No. 2014-003, closing that portion of highway to traffic and removing its dedication as highway, will be considered by the Council at its Regular meeting at the District of Summerland, Municipal Hall, 13211 Henry Avenue, Summerland, B.C., on March 24th, 2014 at 7:00pm. Persons who consider they are affected by the bylaw will be provided an opportunity to make representations to Council at the meeting or by delivering a written submission to the Corporate Officer by 4:00pm on that date. Pursuant to Section 26 of the Community Charter, the District of Summerland further gives notice of its intention to sell the closed portion of highway to the Okanagan Regional Library. The closed portion of highway will be transferred to the Okanagan Regional Library for consideration in the amount of $1,000.00. Enquiries relative to the proposed Road Closure and Removal of Highway Dedication Bylaw No. 2014-003 should be directed to the Administration Office, District Hall, 13211 Henry Avenue, Summerland, B.C., or by calling 250-4946451. A copy of the Road Closure and Removal of Highway Dedication Bylaw No. 2014-003 may be viewed at the Administration Office, during normal business hours (8:30am to 4:00pm, Monday to Friday).

Colourful banner submissions sought Artists of all ages will begin work on colourful street banners this month at the Summerland Community Arts Centre. Banner submissions are being accepted at present and work will begin later this month. The theme of the banners this year is “What will I do tomorrow?” Banner chair Karan Bowyer said the majority of banners will be painted by children and teens, but adults are also welcome to participate. Elizabeth Potter is the coordinator of the banner project. Betty Candale and Katrina Fricke are

assisting with the work. The banners will be on display around the downtown and on Lakeshore Drive in April. Submission forms are available at the arts centre and online at summerlandarts.com. Designs can also be drawn on a standard sheet of paper, folded in half lengthwise. This is the 16th year Summerland has had the annual street banner project. Bowyer said there are only a few blank canvasses left for potential artists, so now they are running on a first come, first serve basis.

CREATING JOBS AND OPPORTUNITIES

ECONOMIC ACTION PLAN 2014 works by controlling spending and putting Canada on the road to balanced budgets in 2015. Balancing the budget protects our economy and keeps it strong. Economic Action Plan 2014* includes proposed investments in things that matter to Canadians like:

Mexican sounds featured at El Mariachi concert The warm sounds of Mexican music will bring a festive atmosphere to Centre Stage Theatre later this month. El Mariachi los Dorados will perform on Saturday, March 22. The concert will feature music from the band’s new album, Si Tu Te Vas (If You’re Going to Go.) The 12-piece ensemble performs traditional Mexican music, but includes some new compositions, said

Diego Kohl, who plays the guitarrón, a bass instrument. The band has performed for 10 years but continues to make some changes. For this year, the band features a new singer, Ricardo Ochoa, who also plays the viuella, a small guitar-like instrument. Band leader Alex Alegria said the music has strong roots in the band’s Mexican heritage. “All of it is very traditional,” he said. “We want to keep

the tradition going.” Alegria founded the ensemble in May, 2003 to bring traditional Mexican music to Canada. Since that time, the band has performed throughout Western Canada, the United States and Canada. The Summerland concert on March 22 begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at Martin’s Flowers in Summerland and The Dragon’s Den in Penticton.

Tip of the week: If after the stone is delivered, the stone does not completely cross the far hog line, that stone is removed. If a stone comes into contact with a stone that is barely across the far hog line and still in play, and the delivered stone isn’t across the hog line after contact with that stone, because it touched a stone in play it remains in play. Thanks to all the volunteers throughout the year; we could not manage without you. Thank you to Cliff and Gord White for the great ice. Watch for details; our season starts October 2014.

ORSTED, Jean R

Jean R Orsted was born January 19, 1933 in Dauphin Manitoba. She passed away peacefully on March 10, 2014. Jean met her future husband Lloyd in 1951 while working as a sales clerk at Eaton’s in Winnipeg. Jean and Lloyd together owned and ran several hotels in Manitoba. They moved their family to BC in 1968. Lloyd built homes in Summerland and if Jean was not busy with her five children she could be seen shingling a roof alongside her husband. Jean loved gardening, cooking (her beef dip was legendary), canning and occasionally making a batch of her “special cherries”. There was never a shortage of animals around her home. She never met an animal she didn’t like! Even up to her death Jean cared for any animal that strayed near enough for her to love. Jean was pre-deceased by her husband Lloyd, her mother Mary and father George as well as her sister Sheila Marie. She is survived by her brother Fred and her five children Heather (Allan), Donna (John), Scott (Marguerite), Kathleen (Bradley), and Cindy (John). She also was blessed with many grandchildren Spring (Aaron), Dorian (Deb), Joe (Jenny), David (Pamela), Robert (Larissa), Ghistaine (David), Russell, Thomas, Allison, Benjamin, Kristopher, Jarred, and Sam; along with many greatgrandchildren. A celebration of Jean’s life will be held at a later time. Memorial donations may be made in Jean’s memory to the Penticton SPCA. Condolences may be directed to the family through providencefuneralhomes.com

DeROSIER, Mary Elisa Roma (nee Biagioni) April 15, 1920 – March 9, 2014 Mary passed away peacefully at Summerland Seniors Village at the age of 93 years. She is survived by her 4 children; Harold (Vicki) DeRosier of Summerland, BC., Ronald (Barbara) DeRosier of Kamloops, BC., Barry DeRosier of Summerland, BC., Debbie (Max) Armstrong of Barriere, BC., 9 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren, 4 great great grandchildren and brother Rocco Biagioni of Summerland, B.C., and many nieces, nephews and other family members. Mary was sadly predeceased by husband Roy, parents Alfredo and Domenica Biagioni, brothers; Marino and Adorno, sister; Rita and daughter in law; Jeanne DeRosier. Mary was born and raised in the Stone House built by her father Alfredo Biagioni. It was here in Summerland where she met and married Roy DeRosier February 5, 1940. Here they built their family home and raised their children. Roy worked at the Summerland Box Factory, Mary at the packing house and together they farmed a 2 acre orchard. After the death of her husband in 1965 Mary continued to run the family home and orchard. She worked at the Summerland Co-operative Growers’ Association as a shipper (BC Fruit Packers) until her retirement in 1985. She continued to run her orchard and enjoyed working in her always beautiful vegetable and rose gardens. In her younger years she was an avid golfer and curler. Mary enjoyed fishing and camping with her family and of course her morning outings with her coffee buddies. Mary was a parishioner of the Holy Child Catholic Church and was a member of the CWL. The family would like to express their thanks to the staff of Summerland Seniors Village who cared compassionately for Mom during her 5 years there. We would also like to express our thanks to the staff of Providence Funeral Homes in Summerland for all their support. Mary will be lovingly remembered by her family and all who knew her. Prayers will be held Thursday, March 20th, 2014 at 7:00 pm., followed by Mass of Christian Burial, 11:00 am., March 21, 2014 from Holy Child Catholic Church, 14010 Rosedale Ave. Summerland, BC., with Father Jim Ratcliffe Celebrant. Interment to follow in Peach Orchard Cemetery. Refreshments will be served in the Holy Child reception hall. Donations in Mary’s memory may be made to the Alzheimer Society of BC, 104-35 Westminster Ave E, Penticton, BC. V2A 1H7. Condolences may be directed to the family through providencefuneralhomes.com

DR. MURIEL EDITH SHAW June 1, 1939-March 4, 2014 Muriel spent her childhood in Tidsdale, Saskatchewan. She graduated from Tisdale Composite High School in 1957 and studied nursing at the University of Saskatchewan. She met Dave in 1960 and they were married in 1961. Muriel and Dave lived in Regina, Winnipeg, Prince George, Ottawa, Calgary, and Vancouver, raising their four children: Nancy, Bob, Sue and John. They settled in North Vancouver in 1975 and resided on the North Shore for the next 33 years. During this time Muriel returned to school and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Simon Fraser University. She went on to earn a Masters degree at the University of British Columbia and in 1999, at the age of sixty, she completed a doctorate in Interdisciplinary Studies at UBC. It is no surprise that Muriel’s primary research area was successful aging, as she certainly exemplified how to live life to the fullest at any age. During this time, Muriel was also very active at St. Andrew’s-Wesley Church in Vancouver, leading many of the popular Jazz Vespers services as a lay clergyperson. Muriel was also an avid runner, completing 28 half marathons in the past 12 years, as well as a lifelong hockey fan. Muriel and Dave moved to Summerland in 2008, where they enjoyed happy retirement years. With all her professional and academic achievements, Muriel was most proud of her roles as mother and grandmother. She was extremely active in her children’s and, especially grandchildren’s, lives. As a grandmother, Muriel took a keen interest in all eight of her grandchildren’s accomplishments. Her love for Lauren, Bobby, Jodi, Caitlin, Daniel, Elsie, Matthew and Alexandra knew no bounds. Muriel wanted everyone to know that she had lived a full and happy life. Muriel lived without regrets and would want all of us to celebrate her positive spirit and remarkable accomplishments. She will be greatly missed. The family held a private service on March 15th.

Thursday, March 20, 2014  Summerland Review

The BC Government is proposing to offload the province’s world-class recycling programs, run by local municipalities, to an association led by big multi-national corporations. The idea is that we’ll get a better, more efficient program that costs taxpayers less.

Currently, BC homeowners only pay, on average, $35 a year for curbside recycling. Under the proposed regime, you’ll pay more. Every time you bring home a pizza, buy toilet paper,

Unfortunately, what we’ll really end up with is anyone’s guess.

How much more? Well, nobody’s saying.

The association isn’t guaranteeing that we’ll get a better program, or even one as good as the current Blue Box program already in place. Since the association is led by big businesses outside of BC, many of whom are not even headquartered in Canada, one could presume that profits will come before environmental stewardship. They usually do. They also won’t guarantee that there won’t be any job cuts here in BC.

Here’s the only thing anyone does know: we already have a Blue Box program that works, is efficient, managed locally and puts the BC environment first. So why is the BC government flipping a coin, bringing in a questionable recycling program that some of our local elected officials are already calling a “scam?”

And how is this supposed to make things better for BC?

or pretty much anything else that comes in a package, businesses will be passing their increased costs on to you.

It’s time to contact Premier Clark and ask her.

What’s going on here?
