If you ever wondered

how much traffic goes in and out of Peachland in a day, you’re not alone. The Highway 97 Task Force Society wants to

know how much of the traffic along the highway is caused by people passing through and to help them find some

answers they will be conducting several traffic studies this summer. The Highway 97 Task Force Society formed

back in 2007 to address concerns about the possible four-laning See TASK FORCE on page 3

Unsafe left turn results in three-car crash Joanne Layh

Peachland View

Richard Smith

A three-car crash at the intersection of Highway 97 and 13th Street occurred last Friday when an eastbound driver apparently attempted a left turn before it was safe to do so. The accident happened just before noon. The eastbound vehicle,

a blue Geo Metro driven by an 18-year-old Peachland man, collided with a westbound vehicle, driven by a 75-year-old Peachland woman, impacting the front passenger’s side corner Geo Metro. Following the collision, the woman stopped and got out of her vehicle, but apparently forgot to place the vehicle in park, RCMP Cst. Kris Clark

told The View. A 51-year-old Summerland man driving a Snap-on Tools truck, stopped to provide assistance but ended up having his vehicle hit as well when the woman’s car, still in drive, impacted the truck. The 18-year-old man was issued a violation ticket for Failing to Yield, which carries a fine of $167.

Bette Johnston takes top prize at Peachland Rose Show Joanne Layh

A Fourth of July climber rose bouquet won Peachland resident Bette Johnston the top prize at last weekend’s Peachland Rose Show event.

The first Peachland Rose Show took place several years ago at the Peachland Little Schoolhouse. After a one-year hiatus the show returned last year, making a move over to Fourth Street Place. Anticipated to be bigger than ever, the show once again changed

As in previous years, entries were judged by Danielle and Malcolm Scott, who have international experience in exhibiting and judging roses. The show was sponsored by the Sowers and Growers Garden Club, who donated the trophies and plaques for the event. Garden club vice president Phyllis Papineau says they were once again very pleased the show’s success. “Attendance was up and everybody loved the

Papineau says because Peachland is an idea place to grow roses, the Sowers

and Growers will continue to sponsor this popular event in the years to come. “You just have to go down Beach Avenue and look at the roses. You look at every garden around and the roses are fabulous. This is what the judges said. In many cases Peachland is ideal for roses because they don’t get the mildew and the diseases that the West Coast roses get.” Papineau says despite this spring’s rain they will continue to host the show at the end of June each year, as this is the time of year when roses are at their best.

Task force society will conduct new Highway 97 study Society says something has to be done about highway sooner rather than later Continued from page 1

of the highway through Peachland. Since then the nearly 600-member strong society has become a strong advocate for a bypass around Peachland. The Highway 97 Task Force Society is a separate entity from the Highway 97 Committee. The Highway 97 Committee is a committee of council that is appointed by council and

passenger vehicles, so it is difficult to ascertain how much air and noise pollution is caused by the traffic. Put says the MOTI studies also don’t reveal how much traffic is local and how much is passing through. “We want to know what goes through and does not stop in Peachland,” Put said in an interview with The View. To find out how many vehicles stay in Peachland and how many pass

We are probably the only community in the world with 11 kilometres of prime beachfront without a hotel, a motel or a resort on it. It’s staggering.

includes representation by members of council while the Highway 97 Task Force Society is comprised of citizens, though some are also members of council. The society directors hope the results of the traffic study will support their view that a Peachland bypass feasibility study by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI) is needed sooner rather than later. Society director Burt Put says numerous traffic studies have been conducted over the years by MOTI, but they don’t separate commercial vehicles from

through, volunteers will be positioned in pairs at the bottom of Drought Hill and at Antlers Beach, where they will count the traffic along the highway. The volunteer will also log the direction of traffic each vehicle is traveling in along with the type of vehicle (commercial or passenger). The results of the study will be compared to previous counts conducted by MOTI. “By comparing the numbers going down the hill and going out we’ll get a good read on who the through traffic are. They’re the ones that will use the bypass,

not me who turns into my home halfway in,” society vice president Peter Warner said. The first traffic study is tentatively scheduled to take place on the second Friday in July, as that is when MOTI conducted a study in 2012, Put says. By closely matching the date to last year’s study, the society hopes to be able to make as precise a comparison as possible. Put says they will need about 24 volunteers throughout the day to have a sufficient number of people to count traffic from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. “We’re anticipating the count will be up significantly,” Warner said. “If we can show quite a marked increase in traffic that will show the ministry and the public that there is going to have to be something done, either four-laning the existing route or putting a bypass in, sooner rather than later. I think the biggest argument apart from pollution and noise, which all communities that have roadways going through them experience, is what sets Peachland apart from every other community in British Columbia is we’re a ribbon 11 km long of the most gorgeous beachfront in the province and no development can go forward,” Warner said. “Every time a developer comes and wants to put in a resort or a hotel or something, he gets sent to the ministry and then they learn that everything is up in the air until such time as this decision is made. We are probably the only community in the world with 11 kilome-

tres of prime beachfront without a hotel, a motel or a resort on it. It’s staggering.” Warner said businesses would flourish if Peachland were allowed to develop as a small tourist centre where people would come to rather than drive through. “Right now our tourists are predominately visiting the beach, parking their motorhome or car, bringing a pic-

nic and then leaving at 5 p.m. because there’s nowhere to stay and that’s a shame. If we had a 500-bed resort at Antlers Beach then just think how full those restaurants would be six, seven, eight months a year. Think how full the dress shops and other little shops we have would be,” Warner said. “Those few Peachlanders that maybe don’t support a bypass, they’re really looking

at the status quo as if it is going to be there forever. One thing we all know is this last little bit of two-lane road between Penticton and Armstrong is not going to stay two-lane for long. We’re either going to get a bypass or we’re going to get four lanes,” Warner said. The society says they will release the results of their traffic study to both the public and MOTI.

OPINION

Peachland Views Congrats to New Monaco for quality community consultation I would like to thank the New Monaco team for giving the Peachland community the opportunity to offer input on design options for the development. It was quite heartwarming to see so many residents attend, eager to complete the questionnaire accurately and with much consideration. In addition, it is truly refreshing to have a developer who values the views of the local community. Congratulations to New Monaco for holding such a successful evening. Gill Evans, Peachland

Is someone poisoning the quail and marmots? Shame on you Watching a lone male quail stay around our yard for two or three days then go into convulsions and die is very disturbing to me. This is the second time this has

happened to us. I feel that some cruel person is trying to poison something, perhaps the marmots?

Also, the marmots aren’t the same this year. God may forgive you for this; I know I won’t. Stella Garnett, Peachland

Greyhound service to Vancouver is for the nocturnal only I am writing to warn residents of Peachland and West Kelowna (population: approximately 30,000) planning a trip to Vancouver by Greyhound that the service is now as follows: Two buses leave Westbank at 3:35 p.m. and one

bus leaves at 11:30 p.m. The only departures from Vancouver to Westbank are at 12:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. However if you are lucky enough to live in Merritt (population: approximately 8,000), you have a

choice of 10 buses leaving throughout the day. I would be very interested to know if anyone can explain the logic for the recent change in the timetable. Gill Evans, Peachland

Stars on Stage thanks Peachland Boxing Club for assistance As many of you may know, Stars On Stage put on their last show before summer on June 23 at the Peachland Community Centre. As a non-profit organization, we try to involve as many community groups in the preparation and set up of these shows. Councillor Terry Condon and the boys involved in the Peachland

Boxing Club volunteered to set up and take down the chairs for this concert. Councillor Condon, along with the club, went above and beyond the call of duty as they set up and took down chairs in such a timely manner as well as assisted with the loading of sound equipment and the cleanup.

COmmENTARy

FROM THE MAYOR’S DESK

Future transit improvements for Peachland MayoR KeITh FIeLDInG

Glenrosa; and • Expand service to new areas in the community (Ponderosa and Trepanier).

In April 2013, BC Transit held an open house at the Peachland Community Centre to present possible service improvement options to the public. In addition to the open house, BC Transit staff spent time onboard the #22 bus interviewing customers and operators to seek additional feedback and ideas. The key themes that emerged from this consultation fall into four categories as follows:

Capital infrastructure issues

• Improved and more direct evening service; • Improved service reliability (buses sometimes run late during the peak periods); and • More frequent service during the peak periods.

Scheduling issues

Routing issues

SPecial TO The Peachland View

• More weekend service requested, especially on Sundays and holidays;

Mayor Keith Fielding

• During the evening the route is too circuitous connected with the #21

• Bus stops along Highway 97 at the IGA are needed; • Additional bus stops on Beach Avenue required (particularly around 5th Street); and • More bus shelters needed and amenities.

Other Issues

• More education and outreach is required on how to use transit and the benefits of transit; • Improved bus destination signage; and • Improved regional connections (to Summerland and Penticton).

Based on the consultation results, short-term and medium-term service change options have been identified as follows:

Short-term (2013 – 2014)

#1 Introduce bus stops on Highway 97 in front of the IGA; #2 Improve Sunday/ holiday service to match Saturday service; and #3 Introduce direct evening service between Peachland and West Kelowna.

Medium-term (2013 – 2018)

#4 Introduce weekday peak-only commuter service between Beach Avenue and the Westbank Exchange; #5 Introduce new week-

day community service between Ponderosa, Trepanier, IGA and Beach Avenue (an internal to Peachland service); #6 Introduce a weekday peak-only commuter service and an off-peak community service between Ponderosa, Trepanier, IGA and Beach Avenue (combination of #4 and #5); and #7 Introduce handyDART service to Peachland so that customers with mobility impairments can more easily get to medical appointments and treatments, and access other amenities. The report recommends implementing the service change options in a staged approach with the most critical needs and costeffective options being implemented first. Increas-

es in capital and operating costs for new service levels (e.g.: for fleet expansion, bus shelters, increased hours of service and trip frequency enhancement) will likely change over time as our population grows. As the report points out, our capacity to fund our share of such improvements must be confirmed on an annual basis as part of our budget approval process and linked to the budget process of BC Transit itself. Council has received the report for information and will at a later date direct staff on implementation priorities. I am always interested to receive comments and ideas from readers and can be reached by email at mayor@peachland.ca

Symptoms of an enlarged prostate

Staying connected to life’s most important conversations, even when they’re whispered, is a great reason to get your hearing checked. Book a complimentary hearing screening today and try hearing aids for two weeks at no cost, and no obligation.*

Many men suffer from an enlarged prostate gland. Because an enlarged prostate most often affects men over the age of 50, many younger men may be unaware of the symptoms of an enlarged prostate. However, identifying warning signs early can lead to an earlier diagnosis and a more effective course of treatment.

An enlarged prostate, known as prostatitis or sometimes benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH, is the inflammation of the prostate. What causes the prostate to expand is largely unknown, but the condition has been linked

to a few different factors. It may occur as a result of a bacterial infection or decreased immune function. Others find it is the result of weakening muscles. Genetics and the aging process also play a role in prostate enlargement. According to Prostate.net, men have a 50 percent chance of getting prostatitis in their lifetimes. Since the condition is so common, some believe that all men could eventually have an enlarged prostate if they live long enough.

Symptoms

Symptoms of an enlarged prostate vary in their severity, and a small amount of inflammation can cause major symp-

toms and vice versa. Information from the United States National Library of Medicine says less than half of all men with an enlarged prostate actually have symptoms of the disease. Those who do may experience any number of the following: • Weak or slow urine stream; • Feeling of incomplete bladder emptying; • Increased urinary frequency or urgency; • Testicular pain; • Pain with ejaculation; • Straining to urinate; • Continued dribbling of urine; and • Stopping and starting while urinating. For many men, the increased frequency to visit the bathroom is one of

the first indicators that there may be an issue with the prostate gland. Those who have slept comfortably through the night may now be rising one or two times per night to urinate. Many times an enlarged prostate, which leads to an inability to fully empty the bladder, can trigger urinary tract infections. This may compound symptoms and cause additional pain or burning when passing urine, as well as increased urinary urgency. An infection also may lead to blood in the urine. Understanding enlarged prostate symptoms can help men with the condition feel better faster.

DISPATCHES FROM THE FARM

Slinging the humanure with Ellen Page JoRDan MaRR

SPecial TO The Peachland View

One of the closest brushes I’ve had with celebrity (besides looking in the mirror; I did, I’ll remind you, take top prize in last year’s Tenderflake best pie category at the Peachland Fall Fair) involved a public disagreement with actress Ellen Page, darling of Halifax. I was spending the summer in Nova Scotia on a farm; she had been out for a walk in a Halifax neighbourhood on a sweltering day when a most unpleasant pungence passed under her nose. The city, as it turned out, had recently implemented a new strategy of dealing with sewage sludge, by way of adding a composted, pelleted version of the stuff to the city’s public flowerbeds. Something had clearly gone wrong. The sludgecum-compost wasn’t supposed to stink--and residents were...incensed. Ellen Page led the charge on the CBC that day. Fun fact about

Ellen: she is keenly interested in ecologically-sensitive agricultural practices, and has even taken workshops on the proper composting and application of what is euphemistically referred to as humanure. On the radio, she fumed

Jordan Marr about the city’s practices. Sewage sludge is contaminated with industrial pollution, she stated, and applying such byproducts to city soils was deplorable (the city maintained that the sludge had been purified of contaminants). That night, I penned an op-ed for one of Halifax’s daily papers, in which I proposed a moratorium on bowel movements until the matter could be settled. The

ickiness Haligonians felt regarding the new policy was understandable, but it raised this question: what did they think was happening to their humanure otherwise? Besides death and taxes, another certainty in life is that we all need to make regular trips to the porcelain throne. Modern plumbing has allowed us to conveniently ignore the question of what happens after we flush, and I suggested that there was no better way to instigate better waste management practices than forcing people to confront the ceaseless flow of what our bodies can’t absorb. The ocean is a pretty vast toilet, but there are consequences to the enormous amount of organic waste we pass into it every day. What has this got to do with a farming column? Every morsel of land-based food we produce and eat represents a drawing down of the soil’s reserves of minerals and decaying organic matter, both of which are crucial to life. In a nature absent humans, this ‘drawing down’ is by

and large a loan, nearly 100 per cent of which is returned to the soil eventually. Humans have disrupted that process of return. We flush away much of what the soil has loaned us, and send another sizeable chunk to the landfill. There are work arounds for this problem. Foremost among them is development and use of synthetic fertilizers, without which the world’s population would be nowhere near where it is today. But they are expensive, often pollutive, and depend largely on finite resources to produce them. I’m not about to advocate for the return of human sewage to our farming soils. But the fact that we don’t return them makes the conservation and return of all other organic wastes even more crucial. As an organic farmer, much of my time is devoted to maintaining my soil this way through composting organic mat-

ter from both on the farm and off, and by growing crops specifically to turn back under the soil. You may not wish to regularly consider where the contents of your toilet are headed when you flush. But every once in a while it’s important to remember that they’re not just off to a golf vacation in Palm Springs.

Our collective ignorance about our waste management can increase the likelihood of poor management practices, which is why I wasn’t as upset about the City of Halifax’s composting decisions as Ellen was. Jordan Marr grows certified organic veggies for home delivery in Peachland.

The most frequent phrase in the whole Bible is “Don’t be afraid!” Sur-

prising, isn’t it? One might think that it would be “God loves you,” but no, it is “don’t be afraid”. In the Bible as a shepherd is looking after his flocks on a dark and cold Judean hillside, an approaching

midst. “Don’t be afraid,” would be the minimum they would need to hear. In watching the movie Quartet recently, I was struck by how well each of the members of that retirement community of musicians helped each other to overcome the fear we all have of being alone and having no one care whether we live or die or how we might live or die. In the film a community of creative people were still able to use their gifts and talents to give delight and sustenance to each other and the staff who cared for them. Don’t be afraid! Each day they encouraged and helped

each other through the obstacles and limitations in their lives and those dark fears that lurk in all of us. What are our deepest fears? Is it fear of not being loved or respected for who we are and the gifts we offer the world? Is it fear of not being good enough, fear of failure or fear of death? So many fears beset us as individuals and as nations and often it is hard to overcome them. Yet, if we do not deal with them our lives become stunted and confined and when nations experience fear it can so easily lead to hate and perhaps war. The Holy One says,

“Don’t be afraid.” In fact we often sing in our congregation, “Don’t be afraid, my love is stronger, my love is stronger than your fear, don’t be afraid, my love is stronger, for I have promised, promised to be always near!” This is a lovingly wonderful gift the Creator offers to each of us. The sustaining, upholding love that helps us deal each day with our fears also helps us get out of bed and say, “Thank you for the life I have been given; thank you for the people who care about me and for whom I also care; thank you for birds singing, thank you for your amazing world; and thank you for your sustaining steadfast love that surrounds me each day.” After we look into our fears – in order to not allow them to control us – and realize that we may well not be able to deal with them by ourselves, we are then able to open up our inner being to allow the working of the Holy Spirit to strengthen and uphold us. Then, along with others in a loving, supportive community, we are able to go forward, to risk and to become whole. “Don’t be afraid, my love is stronger, my love is stronger than your fear, don’t be afraid, my love is stronger, for I have promised, promised to be always near,” God says. May we always be open to the Holy One’s loving, strengthening spirit at work in our lives.

Naked zipliners raise $24,000 for breast cancer research

Cool temperatures and the threat of rain weren’t enough to deter over 60 women from braving the elements stark naked to

Ladies queue for their opportunity to zipline naked.

zipline for a cause last Thursday. The zip naked fundraising event began in 2011 when eight women from the SS Rodeo roller derby team raised $1,500 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation by ziplining naked to show support for a fellow teammate. Last year ZipZone opened up the event to all women and together 84 women – ranging from age 18 to 73 - raised just over $15,000 for the cause. This year the Zipzone Adventures sponsored fundraising event raised over $24,000 for the breast cancer research, an $8,000 increase over last year’s event. “We had 64 ladies and we were blessed the rain held off. Even though it was overcast at least the ladies didn’t go out in the rain, which was actually pretty nice, so our prayers were answered. They would have gone anyway and still had fun,”

Photos Matthieu Warnet-Pelletier

The Zipline Naked event was free for female participants, who each raised a minimum of $250 for breast cancer research. Zipzone president Kevin Bennett told The View. Bennett says next year they aim to break the Guinness World Record for the largest number of naked zipliners by getting more than 183 women to participate in the fundraiser. “We’re going to keep doing it. It’s such a fun

event and it’s good for everybody. The girls have a good time, the charity gets a lot of money, and it’s good PR for us, too so it’s a really good winwin-win for everybody,” Bennett said. “It was a great success.

Everybody left with big smiles. I’ve had a lot of congratulations on Facebook and stuff – lots of people signing on saying, ‘I can’t wait to do it again next year,” or for the ladies who couldn’t make it, “I’m coming next year”

so I think it’s starting to develop into an event that people are putting on their calendars now, which is wonderful.” ZipZone Adventures is located about 8 km up Princeton Avenue, just outside Peachland.
