    MAKING STRIDES Students from Diamond Vale and Merritt Central elementary schools participated in a Terry Fox Run Challenge last Thursday, Oct. 2. The students ran from their school to the other and back with the help of volunteers from the Community Policing Office on traffic control. The schools also raised $480 for the Terry Fox Research Foundation. Above, from left: Payton Moffatt, Brayden Black, Nikita Blachford and Hayden Ellis run for the cause. Emily Wessel/Herald

    City taking over airport fuelCity council approved spending

    more than $50,000 over the initial expectation to upgrade Merritts air-ports fuelling station, increasing its budget to do so.

    At its regular council meeting last Tuesday, council approved by a vote of 6-1 to spend $100,000 to upgrade the Merritt airport fuelling station with a new one equipped with a point of sale (POS) payment system. Only Coun. Dave Baker was opposed in the vote.

    Approximately $45,000 of the cost was budgeted for in 2014, but the remainder will come from the citys reserves for future expendi-tures.

    The budget has been amended to allow this additional purchase, City of Merritt financial services manager Ken Ostraat told the Her-ald.

    Ostraat said the new system is going to be automated as opposed to the manual setup at the airport now, which has a user pay someone on-site for the fuel used.

    The POS will essentially replace

    a cash register with a computer, and will credit the city for the fuel directly through debit and credit card purchases.

    Ostraat said the fuelling station itself will be replaced, but the tanks in the ground will remain, although some of the plumbing may change.

    Itll be convenient for the people that are flying into the airport, so they dont have to call somebody to come unlock the fuel pumps in order to access it, Ostraat said, of the coming changes.

    Coun. Neil Menard puts hat in ring for mayor

    Coun. Neil Menard is seeking a first term as mayor of the City of Merritt in the November election.

    Menard was elected as a councillor in February in a byelection to fill one vacant seat on council.

    He is also the president of the Merritt Centennials a team both of his sons played for in the past.

    Menard has resided in Merritt for over a decade,

    and before that, spent time in the city on and off since the 1970s for his work in the forest industry.

    He is the second person to officially put his name for-ward in the run for mayor, joining incumbent Susan Roline on the ballot.

    The nomination period for the civic election ends tomorrow at 4 p.m.

    General voting takes place Nov. 15.

    New owners take a swing at SagebrushWith a golden golf club,

    Newmark Group chief oper-ating officer Nathan Schau-erte took a swing on his first day as the representative of the official new owner of the Sagebrush Golf and Sport-ing Club.

    Saturday marked the official hand-off of the Quilchena-area golf course from receivership to the Langley-based development

    construction company. Now closing out its sixth season, the golf course will

    see action on its original vision as a golfing destination under Newmarks charge. The takeover of Sage-brush marks Newmark Groups first foray into golf

    course ownership after about a year of negotiations with the court-appointed receiver.I know some people wondered if a real estate development construction

    company has much in the way of understanding the path to develop a golf course

    and see it operate well, Schauerte said.Obviously, we love what we see, and we just want to

    continue to evolve it.Schauerte said New-marks main goal is to move forward with development at the property, which was

    stop-and-go since its opening in 2009.

    Helping steer that course will be the members of Four for Fore Investments Ltd.

    Val Rundans, Calvin Payne, Roy Jeffrey and Peter Jeffrey who will sit on the Sage-brush Golf and Sporting Clubs advisory board. Four for Fore was the original group of investors

    behind PGA-winner Richard Zokols idea of an exclusive golf club ca
