High number of participants compete in Rattlesnake Island swims By Cindy Fortin Peachland View

before you

The weather couldn’t have been better or the lake more cooperative for the 15th annual Rattlesnake Island swim Saturday, August 13. More than 60 swimmers participated in the two swim events. Under a bright, cloudless sky and in relatively calm waters, 44 swimmers donned pink swim caps for the 3.1 km swim that started at Rattlesnake Island at the opposite side of the lake, and finished at the 5th Street dock at Swim Bay along Beach Avenue. Following that, 22 swimmers sporting blue caps tackled the more difficult 7 km swim, which began at the dock, and proceeded out and around Rattlesnake Island and back again. Wouter Terpstra,18, of Vernon led the pack in the 7 km swim, finishing with a time of 1:44:38, well ahead of the second place finisher. He chose to free-style swim the entire length of the race, and only began to feel the stress near the end. “I felt good until about the last 1,500 metres, when I began to tire out. But I had looked at the results from last year, and had a good strong feeling about it,” said Wouter, who has been a member of the Vernon Kokanees Swim Club for six years. Second place in the men’s division was Matt Spector (50-59) with a time of 2:02:00, and Mike Cooke (4049) finished a close third at 2:02:15. The first female swimmer to cross the finish line was Allison Donelon in the 20-29 age category, with a time of 1:56:58. Donelon was second overall in the swim, in both men’s and women’s. Tracy McQuair (30-39) was the second woman to complete the race with a time of 1:58:02, and Martien McGillvray (3039) swam in third at 1:59:24. Top overall placers in the 3.1 km swim were Luke

McIntosh (16-19) for the men with a time of 0:43:00, and Makayla Skrlac (13-15) for the women at 0:47:12. Benjamin Achtem (40-49) was second in the men’s division at 0:44:55, and Luke’s brother Noah McIntosh (13-15) snatched third at 0:51:57. Second best in the women’s was Jennifer Short (16-19) at 0:47:12, and Andraya Skrlac (0-12) was third at 0:47:36. One of the highlights of the race was a mother and son who chose to swim together. Mary Rudd, of Summerland, and her son Kelly Toots completed the race as a team, crossing the finish line arm-in-arm. “We wanted to come across the finish line together,” said Rudd, whose son had only recently returned after traveling in Asia and South Asia for the last year-anda-half. “We’ve been in training together, and I’m going into the senior games in Trail next week and thought this would be a good workout. The water was perfect.” Toots was thinking more along the lines of having a story to tell. “I just thought it would be cool to tell all my grandkids one day, ‘Hey, I was the young guy who swam across the lake’.” Following the two swims, participants warmed up and were treated to a pancake and sausage breakfast served up by the local Lions Club outdoors at the community centre.

Peachland hiking victim described as loving and generous By Cindy Fortin Peachland View Twenty-one-year-old Peachland resident Daniel Lovegrove died Saturday, August 13 when he and a fellow hiker fell down a steep, rocky embankment near the rapidly moving Monashee River. Lovegrove had been attempting to rescue his friend, who initially fell when the ground gave out beneath them, and he too was sent tumbling. The other man, a 20 year-old resident of Kelowna is still missing, having been carried away in the water. The men were hiking along a trail in the canyon section of the river near Cherryville, east of Vernon, when the accident occurred. The pair slid about 45 metres down the embankment. A third man desperately tried to save his friends. He dressed Daniel’s head wounds and attempted to resuscitate him before racing downstream to save the other man, who he could not locate. Search and Rescue officials spent all of Saturday and Sunday searching for the second man, who is presumed dead. Lovegrove died at the scene due to his injuries. His mother, Kerry Lovegrove, describes her son as kind, loving and generous. “He was a very bright boy and very confident. He could have a conversation with anyone. He believed in everyone having the right to be his or her individual self. He looked out for the little guy and looked out for his friends,” she said. He will be sorely missed by Kerry and his father Thomas. He was their only child. He will also leave a hole in the heart of his grandmother Carol Ewasiuk, a well-known local artist, his many friends and family and especially his girlfriend Jennifer, who was at the Gold Panner campsite where the group was staying when the accident occurred. Lovegrove and his family have been living in the Okanagan for four years. He worked at the Starbucks, near Save On Foods in West Kelowna.

Daniel Lovegrove, 21, who passed away last Saturday in a hiking accident, was described by his mother as kind, loving and generous. He was an active young man with a generous soul. photo submitted

The family plans to set up a Daniel Lovegrove memorial education fund, which will provide postsecondary scholarships and bursaries. “Daniel tried to rescue his friend; he died a hero. Even if he had known it would be a decision that could cost him his life, he would have made it. In that moment all he could think about was his friend,” says Kerry. “He has brought me more joy than I could ever

Editor’s Perspective

Ex-premier’s appointment to the U.K. hard to digest

W

e’ve all had those moments when we’ve had cause to pause, shake our head in bewilderment and say, “What?” I found myself doing this exact thing when earlier this week it was revealed what ex-premier Gordon Campbell was about to earn in his new position as high commissioner to the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. While this pending appointment was reported back in June, only recently was the dollar figure that went along with the flowery title revealed. Campbell’s salary will be a whopping $200,000 annually. He will receive this in addition to a tidy expremier’s pension of $100,000 a year. “What?” Just when you think that government may be progressing forward, it continues to de-evolve. What exactly will Campbell be doing over there? Saving the world? As it turns out a high commissioner’s job is mostly a diplomatic appointment, a symbolic position. Canada’s presence in London goes back to 1869 when Sir John Rose, 1st Baronet, was appointed as Canada’s informal representative in Britain. Campbell is our country’s 27th high commissioner to claim this prestigious post. It is reported that one of Campbell’s responsibilities is to work with Britain and the European Union to scrap their plans to issue a fuel quality directive that would unfairly discriminate against the oil sands sector. (Such as in Alberta, which would give them a “dirty oil” label and possibly cause a similar response in the U.S.) So what must one do to get such a (mostly) cushy job? Let us not forget this is the same man who pleaded no contest in January 2003 to driving under the influence of alcohol, while sitting as our premier. This is the same man who introduced the controversial harmonized sales tax, then was forced to announce his resignation last November due to the public outcry. This is the same man who, without mercy, cut back on government services and jobs when first elected to parliament. And the list goes on. Now it wouldn’t be fair not give him his kudos. After all, he has given most of his adult life to public service. He was our premier for nine years and prior to that was the mayor of Vancouver. Premier Christy Clark may have summed it up best when she recently released a statement saying Campbell was responsible for reinvigorating the relationship between B.C. and the Conservative government. “Campbell always looked to build strong bonds within Canada and abroad,” she said. “He always took into account the needs of the entire country and worked to build Canada and unite Canadians.” What? United Canadians? Well, that would explain why I’ve been inundated in recent years with requests from Bloc Quebecois party members wanting to become my pen pal. Well, good luck to Gordo. One thing is for certain, with that kind of money coming in, he will no longer have to worry about the cost of healthcare. For himself and his family, that is. Cindy Fortin, Editor

Peek into the Past

Peaches are in season now, but gone are the hills and flats that boasted many peach orchards on the sandy slopes of Peachland. This photo of Rosemary Wilson with a great bucket of peaches was taken in the 1940s. Her dad was Jack Wilson, whose name lives on in the Blind Angler restaurant. Her younger brother still owns a house above the traffic light and the family once had a cottage on the beach near the south boat launch. Photo contributed by the Peachland Historical Society

Dear Editor: My goodness, but Peachland does seem to have a lot of complainers. My husband and I have so enjoyed seeing all the fun along Beach Avenue this extremely short summer. We love waving to ‘the tourists’, who are smiling and waving as they cycle happily along on the four wheel bikes.

I am over 60 years of age and this is the first time I have seem a municipality spend the money for the enjoyment of the entire population, but as we can see, you certainly can’t please all the people all the time.

Their big, sad black eyes and their skin over boney little bodies tells a story of horror. This is Somalia, a country that for more than 10 years has been terrorized by warlords and Islamic fundamentalists who even are trying to stop foreign aid from getting to these starving souls. There are also images projected showing men with guns and observing the condition of these men it is quite clear that men with guns don’t go hungry. The purpose of the frequency of showing these im-

Bylaw officer’s decision and towing fees challenged By Cindy Fortin Peachland View It was a partial victory for a Peachland couple when council voted in favour of reimbursing roughly half of the towing charges they incurred when their truck and pleasure boat with trailer were towed to a Summerland impound. A presentation by the couple and subsequent decision by council, was made at the Committee of the Whole meeting on August 9. Doug Smith and Cora Hopkins convinced council the bylaw officer had made an error when both their Dodge truck and pleasure craft were towed on the May long weekend, prior to the World of Wheels event. Smith and Hopkins had left their truck and boat, which had a “for sale” sign on it, in the parking lot and boat launch area at the south end of town. According to bylaw enforcement officer, Mike Girouard, it is an offense to park any vehicle, boat, motorhome, or other property anywhere throughout the municipality and within the boundaries of the District of Peachland, with a for sale sign on it. He said the bylaw officer involved, Gerry Zimmerman, did try to contact the couple in advance of the towing. Zimmerman was not present at the meeting. “On May 20, our bylaw enforcement officer identified a truck with a boat for sale in the parking area, over by doggy beach. He tried to contact the people. The bylaw officer also left a voice mail for them, telling them that it had to be removed before the car show,” said Girouard. When Smith and Hopkins didn’t respond a fine was issued and on the third day a tow truck was called in. There were two towing and storage charges, one for the truck at $228.14, the other for the boat at $258.99. The fine was $30. The couple said they would have removed their vehicle immediately had they received the messages sent to their cell phone, which was experiencing poor reception. They also disputed the day of the first call, once they were able to listen to their phone messages. “Some of the statements that Mike stated are very true, and some are very false,” said Hopkins. “There were three message from Mr. Zimmerman on our cell phone, and not on the 20th, as stated. The 21st call said we were in violation of a bylaw; the second one was later on that day. He was very angry because we hadn’t responded. The third one was ‘so bad, so sad’ we are moving your boat at 7:31 in the morning.” They also questioned why their home phone was never called when that number was more prominent on the sign, and why their property was towed to Summerland and not to the parking lot behind the Edgewater Inn, which is common practice during World of Wheels. They also disagreed about the length of time their vehicle and boat were at the site

Doug Smith’s and Cora Hopkins’ truck and boat shown here, were towed to Summerland last May. The couple had parked their truck and boat in the parking lot at the south end of the downtown core, near doggy beach. They recently fought and won a partial reimbursement of the towing charges. Cindy Fortin photo

– not for 72 hours, but only for 34. However, it was explained that the 72 hour rule did not apply in this situation, because they were in violation for having the for sale sign on their boat, not for parking for more than 72 hours. The couple was willing to accept some of the blame. “In this case, we got a fine, we paid the fine and we don’t dispute the fine. We know now that you don’t park there with a for sale sign. I bet if you take a poll in Peachland 75 per cent of people do not know that law exists. So every sign for selling cherries, or whatever you are selling, is illegal. There are signs everywhere, but we are paying the price for that,” said Hopkins. She added: “We don’t dispute the ticket, we got the ticket, we paid that, we understand that. That’s the way it goes. But the towing was unnecessary. And Mr. Zimmerman, I am sorry, but he has out-and-out lied in that report. He is not telling the full truth. He can write whatever he wants in there, but I will tell him to his face that he is lying and not telling us the truth.” They also asked council why their truck was towed away, as well as the boat, generating two towing charges, when it did not have a for sale sign on it. In the end council decided to reimburse for the towing of the truck only, agreeing there were some mistakes made in the process. They will be reimbursed for $228.14.

Mike Gibbling chef/kitchen manager has been by their side since they first opened, helping them grow the business into what it is today. “Mike has played a large role in the front of house and kitchen, making sure customer service and food quality are of the highest standard we can provide,� said Susan. The restaurant offers an extensive menu, including appetizers, lighter choices, soups and salads, sandwiches, burgers and dinner entrees, all of which are generous portions. The chicken souvlaki is just one delicious treat among many. All entrees come with a choice of fries, baked potato or white rice and vegetables. Big E’s offers lunch and dinner specials as well as daily drink specials. They offer a unique lunch punch card promotion, where after nine lunches the 10th lunch is free. Eric is a huge sports fan, which works well, as you can watch most any sporting event on one of their many big screens. They also offer is a free shuttle service.

Shepherd’s Pie: Food for the Journey towards my Creator By Derek Koch, Peachland Campus Pastor, Emmanuel Church Contributed to the Peachland View I had an interesting conversation with a friend last week about intelligent design and creation. We were discussing how much faith is required to believe in evolution, compared to how much faith is required to believe in an intelligent creator. Presently, he is trying to make up his mind. While considering the idea that we were purposely designed and created, I suggested that if we indeed were created, then it becomes our obligation to know our Creator. My friend responded with an inquiry about why knowing our Creator was important. I responded that if we are created, our Creator might require something of us, might have a plan for us, and might be interested in knowing us. So how do we find out? The journey goes something like this…it may look a bit simplistic but I think it will help us get started. First, we make a choice whether we believe in a Creator or not. If we do, we then decide what kind of Creator we’re talking about. Are we talking about a

spiritual force or someone more personal? We begin to search out what other people have discovered and how different spiritual movements explain the idea of creation. We may read various books, including the holy books of various religions. Next, we decide who or what our Creator is. Once we’ve made that decision, we respond to our Creator in the required manner. We have no choice. After all, we are only the creation. We’re not in charge. Following the pattern above has been helpful to me. Growing up as a Christian, since the age of five, has, of course, created a strong bias in me towards believing all things were created through Jesus Christ. However, as an adult, I have done my own soul-searching and come back to that same conclusion. After looking at a lot of the evidence available to us, I still believe that we did not evolve and that we are an intelligently designed species living in a complex and beautifully designed universe. So that would move me from atheism (belief in no god) into some kind of agnosticism (someone or something out there bigger than me, but who or what is it?).

I continued to read a lot of books, talk to a lot of people, then made a decision that our Creator was indeed personal, loved us, and has a plan for each of us individually. I discovered that the Bible made the most sense when it describes creation, human nature, history, archaeology, prophecy, and most important -the intervention of God through Jesus Christ to fix this messed up world. I’ve discovered that Jesus wants all of me. As my Creator, He gave everything for me and so requires all of me in return. It’s a beautiful submission because when I surrender, I realize that I’ve landed in a world of peace, hope, fulfillment, and an upcoming eternity of the same. I encourage you to take this same journey. I’d love to hear how you work your way through it and would welcome an opportunity to walk it with you.

Council has approved suitable locations for two new hillside community playgrounds, one at Morrison Park on Morrison Road, at the top of Trepanier Bench, and another at Knoblauch Park on Elliot Avenue, up Princeton. This move comes after it was decided by the district there was no suitable location near Cousins Park, across from Swim Bay to replace the aging playground that was removed from its longtime location next to the old Primary School. The aging playground had been deemed unsafe and was demolished. According to the District, “Both parks are already developed with grass and would be suitable for play structures.” Councillor Lindsay Bell was a strong supporter of the hillside parks and originally put forth the motion to develop them after it was decided building a new playground at Cousins was not possible. She was happy to see the hillside parks approval go through. “One of the reasons I came on council was to get more things for children up on the hills. My frame of mind is, what do we need for children and families here?” Staff will be holding a public open house on Thursday, September 8 to get some community input into the types of structures they would most like to see in their neighbourhood park, including engaging children in idea sharing. Following that meeting, staff will proceed with the purchase and installation of playground equipment.

District awards $50,000 economic impact study contract to Vancouver-based group By Cindy Fortin Peachland View

Dave Smith, director of planning and development services, holds up a copy of the “Terms of reference” manual which lays out the areas of concern needed to be addressed in the economic impact analysis. The $49,997 contract for the study was awarded to Vann Struth & Consulting Group, of Vancouver. Cindy Fortin photo

Peachland

The District of Peachland has awarded the economic impact study contract to a Vancouver-based company, Vann Struth & Consulting Group, for a total cost of $49,997. The District will pay $45,000 of that amount, while the Regional Economic Development Office will provide $5,000. The municipality decided the analysis was needed after being inundated with applications for development in recent years, such as the Ponderosa/Pincushion and New Monaco developments, as well as projects in the downtown core and the lower Princeton area. “The apparent challenge for Peachland is to manage growth responsibly and to ensure that growth occurs sustainably, considering economic, social and environmental impacts. Council has agreed to undertake an economic impact analy-

sis study to help guide future policies and decisions in the district,” said Dave Smith, director of planning and development services. With the assistance of the district and the community, the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission and the Peachland Economic Development Committee, a 16 page “terms of reference” document was compiled for the economic impact analysis. The guide lays out the objectives, scope, and deliverables needed in the study, as well as the mandate/mission statement. According to the document, the economic impact analysis will examine “the effect of a policy, program, project, activity or event on the economy of a given area. Economic impact is usually measured in terms of change in economic growth and associated changes in jobs (employment) and income (wages).” The study is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

Transit fares set to increase in 2012 Continued from page 7 both conventional and custom service, and monthly passes by approximately 12 per cent,” explained Keith

Grayston, financial services, City of Kelowna. Monthly adult passes will jump to

Keeping track of foreign aid money is difficult

$60, up from $53, senior passes will increase to $42 from $37, college passes will be $48 from $43, and student passes to $38 from $34. The last transit fare increase was on September 1, 2007 when conventional cash fares were also increased by $0.25 and monthly passes saw a $4 to $6 increase. Councillor Peter Schierbeck wasn’t happy with the increases, saying: “I

Continued from page 4 and how that money is being spent and that makes one wonder. The military in those famine struck countries, seem to be extremely well equipped. The leaders of these nations trot along in their Giorgio Armani suits, flashing their gold Rolexes and being chauffeured in their limousines. At the same time, it is obvious that the aid workers on the frontline, those who do the actual work, have virtually no money to work with and not enough staples to really help prevent mass starvation. China and India have been buying large tracks of fertile land in places like Congo, Sudan and Ethiopia. The land is irrigated and farmed. The products are not sold in the African markets but are shipped to China and India in order to feed their own billions of people. The West has nothing to do with the drought conditions causing the present famine, but we are certainly carrying some guilt regarding the military conflicts in these poor countries. Many western nations, including Russia, are downsizing their military departments and/or modernizing used and outdated equipment. That used equipment is in most cases being sold to Third World nations, rather than being destroyed. What is not being sold to the various nations may well end up in the hands of weapon merchants. And so the fighting goes on. Our boys are coming home from Afghanistan and with them a shipload of used equipment. It will be interesting to see what is going to happen with equipment that is deemed obsolete. The world is governed by greed. Bert Put, Peachland

feel that the increase in fares at this time is absolutely wrong and I’m totally opposed to it. If you fix the system so that it runs properly and efficiently, on time, then by all means. You’ve got to fix the system before you increase the fares.” Mayor Keith Fielding agreed, but in the end the motion to increase the fares was carried at the August 9, 2011 regular council meeting.
