Be eco-friendly: Recycle your Christmas tree Nothing beats the look and scent of a real Christmas tree, but once the big day has passed, what can you do with the leftover greenery? “Your tree can have another life after the holidays,” says waste reduction facilitator Rae Stewart. “By dropping it off at any one of the convenient Chip It locations, your tree will then be chipped and composted into GlenGrow.” GlenGrow is a nutrient-rich soil conditioner that is excellent for top dressing lawns or for use in vegetable gardens and potting soil. It’s avail-

able at the Glenmore Landfill and many landscape supply centres in the spring and summer. Before dropping your tree off at one of the locations listed here, remove all unrecyclable material such as ornaments, tissue, or garland. If you use plastic bags or ties to transport the tree, please remove those as well. Christmas tree dropoff locations are open until January 31st. For more information, visit re g i o n a l d i s t r i c t . c o m / recycle or call the Regional Waste Reduction Office at 250-469-6250.

South Renfrew Road to remain two-directional Joanne Layh Peachland View

Though the road is not quite big enough for one lane of traffic, Peachland council decided earlier this month to keep the south portion of Renfrew Road open to two-way traffic, despite some safety concerns around the narrowness of the road. Last month Councillor Eric Hall raised concerns about the safety of the road at a committee of the whole (COTW) meeting.

In response, director of operations Joe Mitchell presented an information report to the COTW that explored potential changes to the traffic operation of the section of Renfrew Road south of Sherburn Road. In a presentation to the COTW, Mitchell made the recommendation that the flow of traffic be oneway from south to north. “It used to be a fairly narrow gravel road for many years. It didn’t have shoulders, it didn’t have ditches and quite often it would wash out or there

would seem to be drainage issues to it,” Mitchell explained. In 2011 a decision was made to pave the road but there were still issues with debris. Mitchell said every time it rained debris washed onto the road, which is why earlier this year a curb was added to prevent debris from coming onto the road. However, before the curb was added vehicles could go onto the shoulder for passing purposes, but with vehicles unable to now mount the curbed area,

the ability to pass has been further reduced. Mitchell said that while the two-lane road was paved as wide as it could be paved, it has an average width of just 3.7 meters, which is less than the travel width of a single lane of traffic on a road. “There is very little potential in this area for widening. It’s quite a steep road and it’s on a fine sandy material so to widen it would be extremely expensive and there really isn’t much right of way to widen

that area so there is not too much we can do with that,” Mitchell said. “If you are driving a car going up that road and there is a snowplow coming down that road, there’s nowhere to pass so one vehicle has to back up or down. Backing up is an issue for a lot of people, especially backing up where there’s a steep slope on the one side and this perceived barrier, which is just the bank, on the other side. If two people come to each other and neither Continued on page 3

Changes to holiday garbage and recycling collection With Christmas Day and New Year’s Day falling on Tuesday this year, pick- up schedule for your garbage and recycling will jump one day ahead for both of those weeks. For example, if your regular collection day is Tuesday, your garbage will be picked up on Wednesday instead. If your regular collection is Friday, your pickup will take place on Saturday for the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s only. Monday collection days are not affected, only residents with collection Tuesday through Friday are affected. All collections return to the normal Monday through Friday schedule on Monday, January 7. Place your garbage and recycling carts at the curb by 7 a.m. and ensure the lids are completely closed.

Recycling:

Remember to put all wrapping paper (except foil), flattened boxes and cartons into your recycling cart for curbside pick- up, or take to your nearest recycling depot. Keep the recycling spirit going by saving all shiny and foil wrapping paper and cards, ribbons and bows for re-use.

Recycling and landfill operations:

• The Glenmore Landfill and Recycling Depot, Glenmore Road (7:30 a.m.- 4:45 p.m., closed Dec 25th, 26, and Jan 1) • The Westside Residential Waste Disposal and Recycling Center, Asquith Road (7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Friday thru Monday) • Kirschner Road Recycling Depot (8 a.m. - 6 p.m., closed Dec 25 and Jan 1) For more information, visit regionaldistrict.com/ recycle, or call the Regional Waste Reduction Office at 250-469-6250.

If we make it a one-way south to north there will be problematic exits from the area…I would suggest we live with the situation at this time until a developer comes along in the future.” Councillor Schierbeck went on to say it is not a busy road and the users know about its limitations. “I too think the mistake we made was paving this road in the first place because all we’ve done is encourage vehicular

Your Private Charter Small Group Specialist “TOONERS” Pontoon Boat Charters.

www.peachlandtooners.com Hello From Okanagan Lake Tooners Boat Charters, Peachland BC. Well neighbors it’s the completion of our 2nd season and what an interesting year, it was a successful and a fun filled season! To our valued customers, (also known as Tooners) Thank You for choosing, Okanagan Lake Tooners Patio Boat Charters, your Private Charter Small Group Specialist, “Tooners for short! Your patronage and reviews are very important; they serve as an indicator to the quality of serve we are providing to you. We encourage and appreciate all your thoughts and comments. So please keep those reviews coming on tripadvisor.com and tell your friends. In the 2012 season Tooners introduced an inclusive 2-hour Boat Cruise addition with wine tour package. Working together with Winelicious Wine Tours and Napa North Wine Tours, we have designed a wine tour cruise that has become one of Tooners most popular excursions. As well, thank you Rocky J’s Beach Hut Restaurant, for preparing amazing Picnic Basket Style Lunch’s. The benefits of working together with in the community have been a positive influence for all concerned. I would like to mention a special guest, Mr. Richard Smith, Peachland’s Local Historian; Richard provided a group of local business owners a private history lesson while aboard Ex coelis. The scheduled evening cruise of 2 hours stretched well past the allotted time. It was a picture perfect beautiful Okanagan summer evening and I had no idea about the rich history of Peachland and area. The lesson was well received by all aboard. Finally, thanks to Peachland’s Council for supporting a designated drop off pick up zone within the Day Wharf area. The area painted with yellow paint provides boaters access to the downtown core no matter how busy it is in the day wharf. This area is for the many of boaters who visit Peachland and is vital in the day-to-day operation of local businesses including Tooners. The area designated adds an element of safety to all the customers of all ages. As with any change it takes time to educate people about the rules and for the most part the designated area was used in adherence to the posted 15-minute limits. However they’re a few who take it upon themselves to ignore the rules. So I would ask the few to support local businesses and follow a simple rule, 15- Minute Maximum. Tooners is now preparing for next season and working hard on improving our services for you! Reserve your cruise today and lets show off what we have rite here in our back yard. Happy Holidays to all and thanks you again for all your support. Want a private quiet spot to camp Then let Tooners deliver you, your friends and your camping gear to Okanagan Mountain Provincial Park. Come and explore the natural beauty of the Okanagan nature rite across the lake. Hiking biking, or going for a dip and just relaxing, it’s right here in our back yard. Are friends and family coming for a visit and you don’t know what to do? How about a private cruise on Tooners Luxury Pontoon Boat “ Ex coelis” (From the Clouds) Sightseeing, picnics, searching for Ogopogo or just lazing around with friends and family is priceless, give us a call and book early.

Moberg said. “We could wait until somebody drives their car over the edge and then say ‘we should do something’ but I think

sometimes you have to be proactive to avoid problems,” Councillor Hall said. Though the committee of the whole did respond

positively to Mitchell’s recommendation, they did agree to improve signage that would warn motorists of the narrowing road.

P

eachland residents who want to avoid being a victim of break-ins can learn a lot from Michael, a professional thief who told the RCMP all about his exploits recently. Step inside the mind of a break-in artist who openly admitted to breaking into at least 34 homes and businesses in Nanaimo from October 2011 to May 2012. The 45-year-old is currently incarcerated and is seeking help for his addiction to crack cocaine. Over the past 25 years Michael has been convicted of 27 criminal offences and has spent upwards of 10 years in jail. His crimes ranged from theft, break and enter, possession of drugs, stolen property and assault. During Michael’s recent crime spree he would travel by either bike or bus. He would take a few days to choose an area and then select a target to break into. He preferred daytime break and enters and only took small items he could easily carry and conceal. These items included laptops, digital cameras, small electronics, jewelry, alcohol and cash. Normally within one hour, the majority of the items would be exchanged for either cash or drugs. Before breaking in, Michael would always check to see if there were unlocked windows or doors, and if not, he would simply kick in a door or force or pry open a window. He was in and out in minutes. Michael would also go to certain areas days before breaking in just to watch and learn. He would look at entrances to businesses. He would monitor when homeowners left for the day and when they returned. He would also look for areas that he could not be seen and would afford him time to break in. Peachland has its share of unconscionable individuals who think nothing of breaking into your home and stealing your valuables. Making an honest living is foreign to them; they would rather pilfer your laptop than put on a tie and go to work like the rest of us. The only thing we can do is not make it easy for people like Michael. If you can’t afford a security system, all you can do is batten down the hatches. We don’t recommend bear traps under windows; you’ll be charged if a poor thief gets hurt. Many residents leave their front door unlocked when they are working in the backyard, making it easy for anyone to walk in and steal something. Stop being a victim and put these criminals out of business. To learn more about home security and other crime prevention tips, visit the website www.bc.rcmp.ca

Online information is often misleading I have always been a strong believer in the principle of accountability. It is why I make every effort to ensure that my MP expenses are amongst the lowest in Western Canada, why I spoke out in favour of changes to the MP pension plan that were more respectful to taxpayers, and is why I do not use over the top rhetoric or profanity in the House of Commons.

Dan Albas, MP Since being elected, another belief I continue to act upon is personally returning phone calls and emails where possible, and compose weekly reports on events that occur in Ottawa and in the riding. As taxpayers, you provide significant resources to all levels of government and I believe firmly that your calls and concerns deserve to be heard. We may not always have agreement in a democratic country as diverse as Canada but I submit that one thing that sets us apart from others is that we are respectful of our differences and tolerant, at times even open mind-

ed, to the views and values of others. With the final sitting of the House of Commons for the year of 2012 now concluded this will be my second year in Ottawa representing the citizens of Okanagan-Coquihalla in Parliament and I would like to take a moment to reflect on this milestone. For me the past two years have been an immeasurable learning experience, and a great honour serving as your MP. There is one overarching issue that continues to concern me and that is the lack of accountability in information that is presented online. To be clear, there are many justifiable reasons to disagree on policy and decisions of our elected representatives at all levels of government. However, I am certain that most would agree that a genuine disagreement should be based on factually accurate information. More and more frequently, information being presented is not only factually inaccurate; at times it is even intentionally distorted in an effort to mislead. Frequently this misinformation is located online and often authored by Internet experts or other anonymous sources. At times even conventional media sources can report on a story that may leave out important factual information, an example of this I will share: Many of you have like-

ly heard media reports of our Government committing to purchase the F-35 stealth fighter aircraft. The reality is that not only have no F-35s been purchased to date, the decision to commit Canada to the joint

delayed it further, and as we would ultimately discover, at much greater cost to taxpayers. In fact, it was the same Liberal government who was subsequently forced to turn around only a few years later and

“There is one overarching issue that continues to

concern me and that is the lack of accountability in information that is presented online.” strike fighter program (JSF) was actually made by the Liberal government of the day back in 1997. In 2001 after a design competition the Lockheed Martin F-35 was awarded the contract over a rival aircraft design proposal from Boeing. My reason for pointing out that the Chrétien Liberals made this commitment is not a case of pointing the finger of blame at someone else but rather to illustrate just how far back this issue originates. We must also not forget that this is not the first time Canada has had to replace a strategically important aircraft that have become obsolete. Senior taxpayers will recall that we paid $478 million in cancellation penalties when the Liberals cancelled the $4.8 billion EH-101 helicopter order that was to replace the aging Sea-Kings. It should also be pointed out that cancelling the replacement for the SeaKing did not negate the need to replace this aging helicopter, it only

purchase fewer replacement helicopters at an increased cost now estimated at $6.2 billion. With the replacement Sikorsky helicopters behind schedule we still rely on 40-year-old Sea-King helicopters that require 35 hours of maintenance for every hour in the air. It is important that we not repeat the mistakes of the past and that is why the reset button has in effect been announced by our government to ensure that whatever aircraft replaces the CF-18, we avoid following the expensive and costly lessons that we should not forget occurred with the replacement of the SeaKing. While I recognize that few taxpayers rejoice at the thought of replacing soon to be out of date aircraft, this does not, as we have learned in the past, negate the need to do so. As always, I welcome your comments and concerns and would like to wish all citizens of Okanagan-Coquihalla a merry Christmas, and a prosperous new year.

Fog clearing for snooker league BARRIe heWeR

Special to the Peachland View And not a moment too soon. The Peachland Little Snooker League (PLSL) is now on its annual Christmas break and won’t return to league play until January 4, 2013. That does not mean that there is no snooker. On the contrary we

expect PLSL players will be doing whatever they can to sharpen their cues in preparation for the jousting expected during the second half of league play. The fog has cleared enough today to make it possible to report on PLSL standings. I am sure you will recognize some of the names below. Rumour has it that a tall well-dressed man vis-

ited our legion early last Friday. He asked the bar steward if could have a look at the snooker table. He spent some time reading the PLSL results and with no one else to play he practiced some snooker on his own. “Pretty good,” reports the bar steward. As the visitor was leaving he asked the bar steward, “Please tell the gang Cliff dropped by.”

ship. You may not be sure of which method of ownership that you have, but if you own your home with your spouse, it is likely in joint tenancy. What does this mean and how will this affect your estate? The implications are huge. Joint tenancy means that both parties (usually spouses) each have an equal share in the property (and yes, property includes your land, your house and your mobile home). If there are four owners, each holds a one-quarter interest in the land. What is most interesting about joint tenancy is that it comes with the right of survivorship. This means that the surviving tenant(s) inherit the property and it does not pass through your estate when you die. Tenancy in common can be owned in unequal interests. For example, I can have a 99 per cent interest in our home and my husband

can have the remaining 1 per cent. The interesting part is that when I die, this 99 per cent interest will pass through my estate. Even though my husband inherits my share in its entirety, he must pay probate fees on it! One of the biggest parts of estate planning (for me) is determining how to minimize probate fees. Obviously, it is preferable for spouses to be joint tenants in most circumstances. If you don’t currently have your spouse on title to your home, you may want to consider it. The cost for adding a spouse on to title is minimal compared with the probate fees that will be paid should you predecease him or her!

PEACHLAND VARIETY SINGERS held their annual Christmas concert this month. The choir was directed

by Phyllis Papineau with accompanist Dave Smith. The program included: Glory Glory Hallelujah, Bring Him Home, Chatttanooga Choo Choo, Good Tidings To You Medley, Happy Days Are Here Again, Home For The Holidays, It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year, Jingle Jingle Jingle, Salsa Noel, Were You There In Bethlehem, and Why We Sing. The audience joined in a carol sing along at the end of the concert. During the interval The Treasures sang duets, solos, and group songs. Refreshments after the concert were provided by the singers.

The Northern Flicker is a beautiful wo o d p e c ke r that is often seen in Peachland and they stay here all year. It can be a nuisance however, as it likes to make holes in places where homeowners don’t want them. The male and female are similar in appearance with salmon coloured wings and a spotted breast and a black bib. The male is distinguished by a red moustache; so the photograph is of a male, though the female is

usually not far away. We feed them suet in the winter and they make a lot of noise eating it. In the springtime you might hear a banging noise in your house; it could be a Flicker drumming on your roof vent, trying to attract a mate and mark its territory. Unlike other woodpeckers, the Flicker spends time on the ground and likes to eat ants. They also eat berries and fruit during the winter season. Marion Hall

From the Mayor’s Desk: A further step on the path to affordable seniors housing Readers may recall from one of my previous articles, that at the September 2012 Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) conference, the Hon. Rich Coleman, Minister for Energy and Mines and Minister for Housing, encouraged Peachland (via its “arm’s length� Seniors Support Society) to update the seniors housing needs analysis, and submit a complete project proposal to BC Housing before year end. I am pleased to report that this work has been completed and that a full proposal has now been submitted. The 2009 needs analysis was updated by consulting group, City Spaces, and The Good Samaritan Society, with whom we have a Memorandum of

Understanding to assist in project definition and development put together a detailed plan and business case. Project development funding for this consulting work was provided by BC Housing.

Mayor Keith Fielding The development site assembled by the District of Peachland lies between 5th and 6th Streets above Waldo Way. As currently envisaged, phase one of

the project is a five-storey building, the first floor constructed of concrete with the upper fourstoreys of wood frame. Residential apartments are located on the upper four floors, and will include 52 one-bedroom units and 8 two-bedroom units. It is envisaged that the two-bedroom units will be made available at market rates to subsidize total project cost. One-half of the first floor is for supportive housing services (kitchen, dining, administration, common areas, etc.) and one-half is for market rent retail space, to further subsidize the operating costs of the supportive housing. Preference will be to lease to health related services that will be beneficial to the seniors’ residential

core. This lease area also provides a key partnering opportunity with other community services such as with Interior Health Home and Community Care, and would also be ideal for an adult day program. Programs and services offered by the Peachland Wellness Centre will continue as before, with the current building remaining on site in convenient proximity to the new housing. Due to a redefined use of the available on-site space, a second phase project (of similar size to phase one) can be accommodated at a future date, making this a more economically viable project than previously conceived. Combined with cost reductions achievable through lower development and construction costs, re2 The Peachland View ductions in debt service

costs due to current lower interest rates, and the integration of market rent (ground floor retail space) to offset operating costs, the proposal shows a significant reduction in operating costs per unit, per month, and therefore a reduced level of BC Housing contribution. A public open house will be scheduled in the new year to outline in some detail the vision and business plan as submitted for consideration by Minister Coleman and BC Housing staff. This event will provide a good opportunity for public input, further refinement of the plan, and discussion of practical questions regarding many (as yet unresolved) operating issues. Given the vision, and plan, and the will to move forward on this important project, we look forward now to working with the

province to secure the equity contribution and/or debt service reductions necessary to achieve our goal: preventing the need for Peachland seniors to move away from Peachland in later life in order to find appropriate affordable housing tailored to their needs. Our MLA, Bill Barisoff, has been very supportive of the Peachland seniors housing project and will, I know, be taking a great interest in its evolution during the next critical stages of provincial review. I look forward to engaging the community in further discussion of the project in the coming months, and meanwhile, on behalf of my colleagues on district council, extend to you all, season’s greetings, and best wishes for a happy and prosperous new year!

Business After Hours

Dr. Peter Stapleton of Lakeside Chiropractic Centre hosted a successful Business After Hours with over 25 members attending. He is a graduate of the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, Ontario and strives not only to relieve painful symptoms but works hard to empower patients to achieve a higher level of function. In addition to this, he believes that chiropractic fits in very well with other health care providers and enjoys working with these professionals to put his patients’ health care needs first. Dr. Stapleton comes from a family of medical doctors and found during his pre-med undergraduate degree that the more holistic nature of chiropractic better suited his interests. He is a true outdoor enthusiast, being an avid snowboarder, golfer and cyclist. He has found that chiropractic treatments mixed with healthy living can help people to stay active in all of their endeavors. Matt WarnetPelletier was the lucky winner of an Obus form back rest Stapleton offered as a door prize and everyone enjoyed an evening of networking and the wonderful appetizers, particularly Peter’s homemade guacamole!

the food and merriment inside made for a very memorable and enjoyable festive event.

to the delight of all the little kiddies. On Saturday, December 8, Rob and Janis hosted a potluck Christmas party at their home, which was attended by the chamber board of directors and staff, the Visitor Information Centre staff and volunteers, as well as Mayor and council. In lieu of gifts we requested socks and happily presented a large box of socks to Judy Bedford at the Peachland Food Bank for her Christmas hampers.

New staff at visitor centre

We have a new staff member at the Peachland Visitor Information Centre as a result of a cap youth intern grant that Loretta Robinson secured. His name is Matt Warnet-Pelletier and he was born and raised in northern Quebec. Not only is Warnet-Pelletier’s bilingualism an asset to our centre, he is an extremely talented photographer who has been published in the 2012 Peachland Visitor’s Guide, as well magazine covers and numerous newspapers in Quebec. A future project for Matt will be internet training courses that will be offered to the public at no charge in January. Watch for future notices of dates and times.

Quarterly meeting

Our next quarterly meeting will be held at the Gasthaus on Monday, January 28. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to enjoy a fabulous meal, meet with fellow chamber members as well as being updated on chamber business.
