Flames came dangerously close to Highway 97 but fire crews prevented them from crossing over.

Marine evacuation saves lives in Seclusion Bay Interface Fire By Joanne Layh

The Seclusion Bay Interface Fire that began in Peachland just after 10 a.m. on Monday morning claimed a total of 1 home, 2 garages, 1 police vehicle and a boat. The fire spread over 30 hectares through Peachland and West Kelowna before fire crews were

able to contain it. No lives were lost in the fire, thanks the coordinated efforts of fire crews and a swift marine evacuation of people who were trapped in Seclusion Bay after fires blocked the road out. Fire crews battled the blaze as three RCMP members went down into the Seclusion Bay area to

evacuate people with as much haste as possible. Some residents were able to get out on their own in the very early stages of the fire. However, flames soon cut off the avenue of escape and RCMP members had to abandon their vehicle and gather everyone together for a marine evacuation. Constable Denise Ben-

feld was one of the officers trapped in Seclusion Bay. “It was smoky in some spots with no visibility,” Benfield said. She quickly radioed to her boss for an evacuation boat. Benfield says that while they were waiting ashes began to fall on them and they could see the fire advancing on upon them.

A boat evacuation brought 15 people to safety, including an elderly woman who was found asleep in her home. Aux. Constable Barnard and Constable Routley helped the elderly woman to safety. “She was hard of hearing. She was not able to get out on her own. With

the fire advancing in a very fast manner they knew they had to get her out one way or the other,” Constable Steve Holmes said. “They literally picked her up and carried her down to the water’s edge while trees were exploding beside continued page 2 see Seclusion Bay Fire

Seclusion Bay Interface Fire continued from page 1 them and while the smoke was so thick they were barely able to make their way.” “I couldn’t breathe anymore and all I could see was flames coming through smoke,” Barnard said. They tried to drive out but knew they could not make it so they backtracked to the house. They decided to carry Anne, the resident of the home, down to the lake for a marine evacuation. “She was just perfectly calm and willing to do whatever we had to do,” Routley said. Peachland, Kelowna, Lake Country and RCMP rescue boats were used to assist in the marine evacuation at Seclusion Bay Resort.

As the evacuation was beginning, the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) in Kelowna was being activated. Soon after, an emergency social services reception centre was set up at the Westbank Lions Hall where evacuees could register. It was a matter of less than 45 minutes from the start of the fire until everyone had been evacuated. Peachland Fire Chief Grant Topham was the first to arrive at the scene and he witnessed just how quickly winds spread the fire. “It took off fast,” he said. “There were heavy winds blowing from the NE and from the east side of the lake, pushing the smoke right up towards the highway,”

Topham said at a press conference later that day. “The highway was quite smoky, you couldn’t see very well from there. It was only a matter of a few short minutes - 15 minutes or so – that the flames were up to the highway to the guardrail.” Fire crews attacked it right away and were able to prevent the flames from jumping the highway. Peachland Fire and Rescue Service (PFRS) would take the lead, calling upon aid from West Kelowna, Kelowna, and Summerland, who responded quickly. The coordinated efforts of the various fire crews eventually lead to a successful conclusion, but the battle wasn’t easy. Before 11 a.m., RCMP

members had blocked Highway 97 between Drought Hill and Ponderosa Road for safety reasons and to allow emergency vehicles to move through the fire zone unimpeded. At least a few northbound motor homes remained stopped along the highway, optimistic that it might reopen shortly. It would be some time before officials were in position to redirect northbound vehicles to Highway 97C via Trepanier. Along with the various fire departments, BC Forest Service arrived just after 11 a.m. with a bird dog overhead and air tankers in tow. A 14-person ground forestry unit followed at just after 11:30 a.m., and when the airspace was cleared,

a helicopter moved in to action the fire. By 11:30 a.m. the fire had grown to 10 hectares, and both Peachland and West Kelowna had declared a state of local emergency. The fire grew to 12 hectares by 1 p.m., and an hour after that was up to 15 hectares, though by then winds were beginning to die down. The loss of a structure was announced at 1:30 p.m. but it was unknown to officials then whether the property was situated in Peachland or West Kelowna as the border between the two districts in Seclusion Bay is not clearly marked. The house would later be identified as belonging to West Kelowna. The homeowner also lost a

garage and a boat to the fire. By 2:35 p.m. a second structure was confirmed destroyed, with another two thought to be affected. One structure would turn out to be the garage of the elderly woman who was carried to safety by RCMP. By this time, the RCMP were also able to confirm that 21 people had been evacuated. In a strange twist of fate, the mayors of both Peachland and West Kelowna were out of town on the day the fire broke. Mayor Fielding was on holiday in the UK, though plans for an able acting mayor were in continued page 3 see Seclusion Bay Fire

Last month it was agreed that Councillor Schierbeck would take his place rather than Councillor Bell, who was originally scheduled to be acting mayor this week but due to other commitments would not be able. So, at a 4 p.m. media conference at Fire Station 1 in Kelowna, acting Peachland Mayor Peter Schierbeck addressed the

public. “This has been a very tough day for West Kelowna and Peachland,� he said. “We offer our sympathies and sorrows to the people who lost their homes.� EOC director Elsie Lemke said that between PFRS, West Kelowna Fire and Rescue, Kelowna Fire Department and Summerland Fire and Rescue, they had 46 fire personnel battling the blaze. Fire crews continued to work hard, and by 4 p.m.

the fire was contained and Highway 97 was reopened to single-lane traffic between Peachland and West Kelowna. Later in the afternoon, the number of registered evacuees had increased to 37 and the EOC moved down to level one, indicating that less staff were needed than in the early stages. Overnight, Peachland and West Kelowna fire crews along with BC Forest Service monitored the fire, which although con-

tained, still remained active. They bolstered containment guards and patrolled around structures to put out any hot spots. Officials were concerned that lightning forecast for the area overnight might reverse gains made during the day, but fortunately the weather cooperated. Fresh crews arrived at the scene at 8 a.m. on Tuesday morning. At this time, the reception centre closed as all evacuees had been provided food,

lodging and clothing assistance, as needed. Commuters in the morning would find Highway 97 open, but with speed restrictions in place while emergency crews were still active in the fire zone. The EOC remained open and active in a support role for the fire incident command. Throughout Tuesday, hazard assessments were conducted to remove and reduce dangerous trees and other conditions in order to make the area safe for the public and restore services as quickly as possible. At noon on Tuesday a private briefing for the evacuees was held at the Westbank Lions Hall to bring the affected parties up to date. In total, Emergency Social Services had registered 67 evacuees. On Wednesday morning, the Fire Investigation Team on the Seclusion

Bay Interface Fire announced the cause of the fire. During weather conditions that saw winds gusting up to 70 km per hour, a tree had fallen on a power line, sparking the fire. A surplus of fuel in the area took care of the rest. Throughout Wednesday, fire crews strengthened the north and south fireguards while BC Hydro was actively working in the fire zone to ensure safety and restore infrastructure and electrical service as quickly as possible. However, power poles situated in steep and rocky terrain made for a difficult process. As the View was going to press, officials announced that it was still unsafe for evacuees to return home, though they would be offered transportation and an escorted temporary access on Thursday to obtain personal effects and belongings.

Politicians break ground at the Westside Interchange project.

By Phil Seipp The politicians have been at it again, grabbing shovels and moving dirt for another construction project in the Valley. On Tuesday, July 13 MP Stockwell Day, Premier Gordon Campbell, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Shirley Bond and Chief Robert Louie of the Westbank First Nation (WFN) were among those gathered at the WFN headquar-

ters for a groundbreaking ceremony. Although the Westside Road interchange has already been approved and construction has been under way for some months, government representatives made this opportunity to re-emphasize the degree of co-operation that has gone into this project. All the speakers at the ceremony reiterated the mantra of “On Time and On Budget� for the last

phase of this latest improvement to Highway 97. Under the agreement, the WFN has responsibility for managing the project and overseeing the work of the contractor, Ledcor CMI Ltd. Ledcor takes over from B.C. General, which built the detour routes that will be used during construction of the interchange itself. For Peachlanders and other users driving into Kelowna it will mean two years of detouring

around the construction zone. Chief Louie pointed out that the more disruptive work will not begin until after Labour Day and emphasized that the project staging has been well planned to minimize delays to the traveling public. The interchange is budgeted at $41million and, according to Premier Campbell, is a portion of $600 million in highway projects completed in the Okanagan Valley in recent years.

contributed Due to an extended road construction schedule affecting the 20 km bike course, The District of Peachland Recreation Department announced on Tuesday, July 13 that the 16th annual Peachland Triathlon scheduled for Sunday, July 25 will be cancelled. “We apologize for the inconvenience, and appreciate the disappointment for the athletes, but a safe alternative could not be found for race day,� says Race Director Pelma Haffenden. Staff, along with the construction crew, assessed the route trying to find alternatives. Unfortunately, because the location of the construction is at the mid-point of the cycle, it was challenging for to find a 20 km route that staff felt was both safe and appropriate for the athletes. “Rather than compromise athlete safety and the integrity of the race, we feel that it is in the best interest of both the athletes and the District to cancel the triathlon for this year,� says Haffenden. Full refunds will be issued to the already registered triathletes. The 2011 Peachland Triathlon is scheduled for Sunday, July 24, 2011 featuring an improved route and amenities from the Beach Avenue/Centennial Way construction project.

It’s what’s on the inside

To the editor, What a spin we’re in. In response to the front page article in last week’s View, let’s have a look at the not so ‘green’ flip side. By the time the Centennial Project is completed it will have added more than a few thousand tonnes of C02 emissions to the atmosphere in direct and indirect activity related to the project. About another point made in the article – the recycling of the asphalt – all Canadians should be proud. In spite of being one of the most wasteful nations on earth (on a per capita basis) Canada has led the world in recycling asphalt technology. The use of this technology has been around in Canada and world wide for decades, not because it is green, but because it saves thousands of dollars. Let’s bring sustainability down to earth. Barrie Hewer, Peachland resident

I would have thought Mr. Renoe would have asked the owners what plans they have to fi x the outside and said so in his letter. This would likely have negated him from writing surreptitious comments of a new business trying hard to establish in our community. The meals we have experienced were excellent. The outside condition has no relevance as to what’s inside. Art Basham, Peachland

 WEEKLY COMMENTARY BILL BARISOFF, MLA Last week the summer heat fi nally descended upon us, and while it is always refreshing to watch the crowds of families and friends gather to float down the channel parkway, the summer heat also often brings out the roar of the air tankers fighting forest fi res from the Penticton airport. The recent heat wave has increased the area of British Columbia under extreme fi re threat rating from 19 percent to 62% of the land mass in B.C. On July 8 alone 32 new wildfi re’s were report province wide and it has been confi rmed that 13 of these were human caused. Since April 1 of this year already 402 fi res have been responded to. Please take great caution when using the back country and respect the new reduced campfi re size regulations. For more information please visit www.bcwildfi re.ca While on the topic of escaping the summer

heat, we are blessed to have many great lakes and rivers nearby that are perfect for a swim or a day at the beach. Please remember that last year 66 lives were lost as a result of a water related accident. July and August are the two most tragedy prone months and our interior region is the second highest in B.C for recording water related fatalities. Please be vigilant and also remember to keep an eye out for others. Conditions can change quickly on the water. Late last week you may have also heard that all of the recommendations from the local elections task force are expected to be in place prior to the next November 2011 municipal election. Some of the more significant changes include imposing expense limits on local election campaign participants, requiring registration and disclosure by third party advertisers, requiring sponsorship information on all election advertising, making electronically searchable campaign fi nance disclosure statements available earlier and extending the term of office local government to four years from the current three year commitment. Over 10,000 British Columbians took the time to submit recommendations to the commission, including

many from the Okanagan. I would like to personally thank everyone who made an effort to get involved and for sharing your input. In other news you may have heard that British Columbia ended the fi scal year with a deficit of $1.779 million. While a deficit is never a situation that any of us are pleased with, in this case our deficit is nearly $996 million smaller then what was set out in the September budget forecast. Overall there was an $833 million decrease in government spending, partially offset by an $87 million reduction in revenue. The ongoing instability in world markets shows the continued need for prudent fi scal management so we can continue to deliver the vital services British Columbians depend on. In spite of the decrease in spending in some areas of government, funding for health, education and other social services was again increased by over $1.1 billion for this fi scal year. Collectively health, education and social service spending is nearly $30 billion annually. The anticipated annual HST revenue to government for a 12 month period is expected to be $5.3 billion in comparison.

Sometimes less really is more Dear Editor, It would seem that our local council is following the lead of our provincial government in their economics and ethics.  The charge for the town supplying us  with water is a good example.  When planning the residential water rate they set the base rate at $36  based upon an expected average use of 889 litres per resident per day.  Actual water consumption turned out to be an average of only 736 litres per day.  We are each using 17.2 per cent less water than was thought, isn’t that great?  Our council though doesn’t think so. They decided that if we are using less water, they will lose money.  How did they react to our saving 17.2 per cent of water consumption?  By increasing the base rate from $36 to $55.50 - a whopping 54 per cent.  One would think that if you use less of a product, there would be incremental savings in production costs.  Not according to our council.  They say that costs remain the same regardless of usage. Isn’t this a marvellous incentive to conserve water? The less water you use, the more you pay. I am not too sure if that means that the more we use, the less we pay?     Then we turn to ethics, being honest and keeping promises.  When, without referendum, it was decided to keep the ugly old school house, the council promised not to spend any money on the project of refurbishing the school until all grant funding was in place.  Despite this promise, they are now planning on spending many thousands of dollars before a penny of grant funding has been awarded.  Perhaps they should take the opportunity of the upcoming byelection to fill Ernie Hurd’s position and include a referendum on the old school house at the same time. If the majority of residents agree that we should spend our tax money on the school that’s fine but if not, then let’s get rid of the school.     Now, don’t those two examples remind you of Campbell and his buccaneers?

The Peachland View

This week at the Little School House art series: Mary Walker By Eric Hall A continuing source of pride in our community is the Little School House on Brandon Lane (off 4th Street). This building is adjacent to the Anglican Church and, in fact, was the Anglican Church for many years; a lot longer than it was a schoolhouse! After ten years as a school, the larger Primary School on Beach Avenue was built. As many of you know, the Little School House was saved from demolition by a determined group of volunteers. They worked hard to enhance and preserve the building. Now we can enjoy the benefit of their hard work by stopping by during the summer months to check out local art work (from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.), Thursday to Saturday. On Sunday, you can combine looking at art and having a cup of tea and dessert (from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m). This week is week three of a nine-week program and features the work of

Mary Walker, who specialises in quilling. Yes, that’s quilling not quilting. But if you are not familiar with quilling, then you’re not alone (even my spell check doesn’t recognise the word). Quilling involves making shapes and creating art using paper. If you are not sure what that means, you can fi nd out this week. You can stop by and look at the quilling art work of Mary Walker. The display is there for the public to visit without charge from Thursday through Sunday. Mary intends to offer a brief introduction to quilling at a small cost for those who might be interested. So stop by to look at the art and, if you are interested, ask Mary when she is offering instruction classes. Mary has won several awards for her work culminating, in 2010, with an award for a wearable quilled garment. Mary tells us that, “this is a unique, one of a kind art form. Not only thera-

peutic, as all art is, but simple enough for the youngest and the oldest among us to create�. Some of the earliest quillers were Italian nuns. They cut paper into intricate designs and painted the edges with gold and gold fi ligree was invented. The name quilling came from the use of a feather (or quill) on which the shapes were made. Many years later the paper shapes were made on long hatpins but the name quilling continued. Today, it is an unusual but very interesting art form. If you want to learn about something new, plan to visit the Little School House. On Sunday, you can sit out on the patio with a cup of tea (or coffee) and dessert for just $4.50 per person. The money goes towards the maintenance and preservation of what is one of Peachland’s treasured assets. You get good service with a smile and it’s all run by volunteers. It’s Peachland pride at work.

The Peachland View

Peachland Highway 97- July update report

Terry Tanner, Councillor Terry Condon, Bob Sugden, and Burt Putt (shown left to right) meet with MLA Bill Barisoff (centre).

By Bob Sugden Most Peachland View readers know that our Council and Community adopted the Sustainable Peachland Charrette Report prepared by the University of British Columbia Design Centre for Sustainability. Last week, the Task Force with Councillor Terry Condon delivered this important message from the charrette to MLA Bill Barisoff in his Penticton office. “Transition Highway 97 to a scenic character through Peachland; Highway 97 is a key mobility corridor for travelling through the district and accessing downtown Peachland, and will continue to support this function whether it remains as a highway or becomes

an arterial street if the highway relocates. Although the future location of Highway 97 is uncertain, the concept plan envisions this corridor as transitioning to a scenic route with a safer and more pedestrianfriendly character, similar to the recent highway improvements along the Sea to Sky highway. This character may be more or less strongly realized depending on the future plans for the highway corridor, and may include options such as: locating traffi c lights at key intersections, with at-grade pedestrian highway crossings connecting to pedestrian access at 13th Street, 8th Street and Clements Crescent; creating a scenic streetscape with street trees at the sides and in a central

boulevard along the road; and, reducing posted speeds through the segment from Princeton Avenue to Clements Crescent. The municipality has historically sought to make similar improvements to this corridor, and will be challenged to work creatively through intergovernmental negotiation to best achieve this vision.” – excerpt from the charrette report. To make this a reality, we need Bill, the Speaker of the House, on side. Councillor Condon was emphatic, “Bill, I doubt one can find 50 people who want four through lanes on 97 in Peachland, today!” It was just a year ago, that the fires hit West Kelowna. This week they came even closer to Peachland. Seclusion Bay fires had Highway 97 closed on Drought Hill. Highways through our province are not only corridors for travelers, goods and services but vital for fire fighting and creating fire breaks.

The Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, Shirley Bond, along with Premier Gord Campbell flew over the fire zone on Tuesday to take a first-hand look. Our message has been ‘to develop a future plan.’ Minister Bond acknowledged there are “issues” to be addressed. A business plan can be none too soon. Whoever builds a house without a front and back door? With the new Pincushion Peachland getting underway with 2,000 new homes to be built, where will their back door be? Where will their fi rebreak be? The Task Force, Council and the 97 Chamber of Commerce Corridor Panel all share the same perspective. Solutions require a long-term resolve but if it does not start now, it will never happen. A cut and paste process will be unending. Highway 97 started innocently enough in Kelowna. West Kelowna may unravel the couplet but four lanes is their only option. At the sod turning for the Westside Road interchange, this week, Chief Robert Louie addressed the media with a key message. One must decide on right project and it does not happen overnight. The planning took over five years. Adopt the right process or forget bringing a future highway on time and on budget! Getting the attention of the provincial and federal officials to adopt a planning process is indeed the next pressing issue for Peachland.

News From the Chamber

By Darlene Hartford

Linda and Kevin Barker moved from Nottingham three years ago and Linda says, “we certainly won’t be going back any time soon.” The Barkers are new owners of Carol’s Hair Studio in Heritage Plaza and have renamed the business The Headgardener Salon. Although renovations are in the immediate future, the Headgardener is open for business with new hours of operation Tuesday to Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Linda offers family hairdresser services including shampoo and set, which is a practice gone by the wayside in many salons. Joining the Barkers is barber, Gina Larsson from Prince George. Gina is an old fashioned barber-stylist specializing in razor cuts, brush and crew cuts and tapers. Gina will be at The Headgardener Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays with a 7:30 a.m. start for the early riser; book appointments with Gina up to 1:30 p.m. only. Contact Linda or Gina at 250-767-2176 or drop by Heritage Plaza and visit Peachland’s British corner with British Invasion Sweets & Goods and The Headgardener Salon. Recently, Ace Film Company photographer, Allen Jones, traveled to many Peachland attractions and businesses building an image bank on behalf of Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association. Peachland Chamber

and Visitor Information Centre shared Allen’s unique eye one Saturday afternoon with Westbank Chamber of Commerce. Allan visited Peachland’s peopleplaces and nonchalantly captured our leisurely lifestyle as residents and visitors strolled along Beach Avenue, but also caught the energy of youth as young girls took to the rope swing at Swim Bay. Photos of campers at both Camp Okanagan in Paradise Valley and Todd’s RV Park depict visual differences between wilderness and waterfront camping. Historic buildings, outdoor patios, and still life photos of wine cellars and flowers are all inclusive of the image bank. Although most shots were candid kayaker Peter Price and locals Ted and Donna Cave were fill-ins for video segments of TOTA’s shoot. Okanagan ATV Tours provided footage of rough terrene and breathtaking views above Peachland while testing Allen’s, and assistant Sara Miller’s skill in traversing the countryside. A wedding at Working Horse Winery provided unique shots of a bride and groom running and jumping amidst row upon row of vines while harnessed draft horses worked the vineyard. Photos and video footage will be used in Peachland tourism initiatives and are available to businesses. Watch for the line-up of films being featured during Okanagan Film Festival at the Paramount Theatre in Kelowna. The Beast of

Bridging the generations wall mural By Judy Wyper The Peachland Wellness Centre (PWC) has a teen volunteer program which operates during the school year. Wendy Howard has volunteered as the facilitator since 2004. Over the years they have undertaken varying projects such as sewing teddy bears for the RCMP compassion kits, raising money with a walkathon for polio research, and helping at Halloween parties in the recreation centre, the St. Margaretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church garden sales, and Rotary Gala events. In 2007 they decided to clean up the graffiti-covered walkway below the highway at Trepanier Creek. They envisioned a mural

of fish and imaginary watery creatures to depict what lives in Lake Okanagan. Wendy applied for and received a grant from the Central Okanagan Foundation for Youth. This would be used to cover the costs. She liaised with the Department of Transportation to obtain permission for the project. The teens provided artistic examples of what the fi nished product might look like. Their plans involved participants from Peachland Elementary, Glenrosa Middle School, and Mount Boucherie Senior Secondary. Each school publicized the idea and crowds showed up to paint and watch. An RCMP officer gave vouchers to participants. The Rotary Club set up a tent for the Teen Volunteers to use when registering the painters. Sandy Davies and Jerry Dober served free hot dogs. It was a joyous occasion. A fanciful, whimsical fi nished product graced the underpass walkway. Wayne Power joined Wendy the next day to apply a clear coat of protective paint. But over time the mural was repeatedly vandalized with graffiti and the original masterpiece

was looking sad. This summer the Department of Highways contacted Wendy, who is also the Programs Coordinator at the PWC, to see if the mural could be restored. Wendy phoned Phyllis Papineau of the Arts Council to make plans. They mobilized a small group of volunteers for a paint-in. Sandy Davies and her neighbour Oliver Mendosa helped Wendy with the preparation of the wall. It was hosed and then washed with mops.

Phyllis told Vic Loney of the District of Peachland about the project and he was so delighted with the idea that he offered buckets of paint. So thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how it was that last week I joined some other seniors to paint fish and monsters onto the wall of the pedestrian underpass. It was cool and refreshing in the shade with Trepanier Creek rushing beside us. We masked the areas of graffiti with blue paint and added our colourful creations

to maintain the playful spirit of the original mural. Phyllis commented, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame that the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; creations would get graffiti on it. We had to do something. So it began by children and was restored by seniors. Grandmothers! I think we should call it Bridging the Generations.â&#x20AC;? And she painted those words above the mural. Now people aged 4 to 80 have worked on the mural. Isobel Simonyi

stressed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a lovely time this morning restoring it, putting our talents together and painting.â&#x20AC;? Wendy hopes that the mural will be respected when people see that the work was done by all the generations. Please spread the word to protect this group project. And if you are interested in being involved in any of the PWC activities, phone us at 250-767-0141. Our website is www. eachlandwellnesscentre. ca.

Summer Boredom By Ana Frias

Have you noticed? Summer is here! Do you have bored teenagers at home yet? When I was younger, I found I always enjoyed a few weeks of sleeping in and relaxing, but then the boredom set in. Growing up in a small community, with limited options, I’m sure I drove my parents crazy with, “I’m bored!” and “There’s nothing to do!” So what can you do to keep your teenager from getting bored? Here are some suggestions of things to keep your teen busy: • Summer Job: Does your teen want a summer job or even a backto-school job? Our employment counsellors can assist with resume development, job readiness skills, interview skills and even the job search. Call Carissa at 250. 707.1396 or email cglasser@boysandgirlsclub.ca. Part-time summer employment is a great way for your teen to gain important life skills such as budgeting, time management and more. Is your teen too young for the job market? There are always opportunities for babysitting, dog walking, yard work and other odd jobs. • Volunteer: Volunteering is a great way to

gain work experience, job skills and references. It looks great on a resume, as well as university and scholarship applications and can be used as credit towards graduation. Volunteering is also a great way to explore your interests while giving back to your community.

School Bus Transportation Update from School District No. 23 In preparation for the 2010/11 school year, all students who have been assigned a seat and have paid the student transportation charge (or made alternative arrangements through their school Principal), can pick up their bus passes after August 30th at the school they will be attending in September. The assigning of vacant seats to courtesy riders and late registrants is now in progress. Any returning riders who have not made a payment of the student transportation charge by the June 30, 2010 deadline need to complete a new application as soon as possible to be considered for any of the remaining vacant seats. Please go to our website at www.sd23.bc.ca/transportation for further information on eligibility, requesting registration, and/or paying the student transportation charge.

gram. The program is designed for teens ages 13-17 to come to camp and learn how to and what it takes to be a camp counselor. The expectation is that they are a mature teen that is able to provide an extra set of helping hands with the younger kids. CIT’s would be on the same schedule as a camper and would stay overnight from Sunday to Friday. The CIT Program is a good way for

teens to get experience and attend camp free of charge in exchange for some work around camp. For more information, visit our website at www.boysandgirlsclub.ca/camp.php. • The Beach: Peachland is home to one of the only public beaches in the Okanagan with lifeguards. Swim Bay is a fun place to spend the afternoon, meet with friends and cool off from the heat.

New pastor at Peachland Baptist Church Pastor John and Maria Rankin began their ministry at Peachland Baptist Church on April 1, 2010. John brings a somewhat unusual background for a pastor. He had worked as a corrections officer and driving instructor as well as serving in several churches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned I could survive past the gate, and that these fellows were

needy,â&#x20AC;? he said of his 10 years working at the medium security federal prison in Mission, B.C. He was a corrections officer, a case agent, and a counselor. John grew up in Vancouver. He attended Northwest Baptist Theological College and Columbia Bible College in the Lower Mainland.

Maria grew up in Aldergrove and started working in childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ministries at age 15, teaching Sunday school and organizing clubs. The featured speaker at the camp was Jay Carty, a former Los Angeles Laker. John asked his counsel on their romance and received advice to be cautious. When John and Maria later married, he told Carty and received back an e-mail, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You made my day!â&#x20AC;? During his years of study and corrections work, John became childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pastor at a church in Burnaby and then associate pastor

in family ministries. In 2001 he came to Merritt to be the full-time solo pastor of Merritt Fellowship Baptist Church. While in Merritt, he also took on work with the provincial Ministry of Children and Families as a child case worker. He also operated a private business in driving instruction, and still holds that license. John and Maria, now married for 28 years, have three children, Phil, now 26, Katrina, 24, and Lena, 22. When the children lived at home, the Pastor John and Maria Rankin Rankins often ministered as a family, in a plans for an expanded variety of ways. ministry.

Their wisdom can be passed on to a younger generation.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Lord instituted the church and he will build it,â&#x20AC;? said John, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hope in Christ can

Maria noted that so much wrong information is hitting people today, especially through the internet, that Christian truth is more vital than ever. Since they have been here, John and Maria have started a gym night for youngsters at the Community Centre on Wednesday nights. They are also planning to hold a Vacation Bible School Beach Party from July 27-29 for all children â&#x20AC;&#x201C; kindergarten to Grade 6.
