Hundreds attend the Peachland Rose Show Joanne Layh Editor, Peachland View Over 300 people attended last weekend’s Peachland Rose Show, but only one person went home with the Overall Best in Show trophy and that was Judy Runzer, who won for her bouquet of roses. Runzer’s winning bouquet contained numerous rose varieties including Gold Medal, Peace, Mardi Gras, Double Delight, Fame, Olympiad, Pope Jean Paul, Spellbound, April in Paris, and Gemini. “This has been the best year since we’ve lived in Kelowna for growing roses. It’s been absolutely fantastic,” Runzer, a past-president of the Kelowna Garden Club told The View.

The winners of the remaining best in show awards were: • People’s Choice – Best Fragrance: Noel Eckrol; • Miniature Rose Best in Show: Phyllis Papineau (1st and 2nd) Irene Oishi (3rd); and • Large Roses Best in Show: Carol Cain (1st), Barbara Clark (2nd), Irene Oishi (3rd). “We had 200 entries, which is up 60 from the previous year,” Sowers and Growers Garden Club member Phyllis Papineau said. “The judges were very impressed with the quality of the roses and some people spent hours here, which is really lovely.” In addition to the rose displays, the event also included an auction, about 20 floral themed works of art on display by local painters, as well

as a tea and luncheon. “The Rainbow Auction for gardening items has been very popular. That’s an addition we couldn’t do in the little schoolhouse because we didn’t have any room,” Papineau said. “We’re thrilled to bits with the turnout and response.” International rose show judge Malcolm Scott said the show was exceptional considering the weather this spring. “I was a bit worried but they’ve come through with some great entries... all different types of roses are represented from hybrid teas to miniature roses and floribundas. It’s been a pretty good representation,” Scott said. “Everybody always wants to enter the perfect one, but every rose is nice. From the weakest entry to the best, it’s nice. It’s the volume that makes the show.”

Joanne Layh Editor, Peachland View The Peachland legion is facing difficult financial times and if nothing is done to reverse current conditions, they could close their doors before the end of the year, local legion finance chair Barrie Hewer says. Hewer says the legion has been operating with a deficit budget for the last 18 months and has been dipping deep into reserve funds to pay for operational expenses. “Over the last eight months it’s gotten worse and worse on an expediential basis,” Hewer told The View. “At the current rate of burn, it [the reserve fund] will be gone by November.” The legion is now facing some tough choices about what they need to do to become sustainable going forward. At their June 25 general meeting, the membership will be asked to vote on whether or not to refinance the assets of the legion, which includes the property next to the legion. Refinancing is a short-term solution that will help the legion for a period of time, but Hewer says they are also working closely with the B.C./Yukon Command on long-term strategies, with the main focus being on increasing their membership. The Peachland branch is not alone in their challenge. Legions across Canada are losing memberships and facing similar, if not worse, financial hardships. Hewer says that in addition to refinancing and their strategies for improving revenues, they also intend to apply to the district for relief on their property taxes. In addition, staff at the legion have taken pay cuts to help the branch stay out of the red. In an effort to turn things around, the branch has also just begun a membership drive that they hope will help attract new people to the legion. Hewer says one of the biggest obstacles in attracting new members is changing old perceptions about what the legion is and who can join. “You can join if you are a Canadian citizen and over 19 years old. You can join and have fun,” Hewer says. “We renovated the front third of the legion. It has chesterfields, chairs, a fireplace, specialty coffees…we’re trying to change the Peachland legion to be a place where people can go and relax. We’ve got free

email, free Wi-Fi. We need to attract new members. It is the only thing that can save us.” Hewer says the legion also offers members a chance to play snooker, volleyball, pickleball, and do other activities, but changing public perception about what the legion offers has been a challenge. “People don’t think of it that way. They think of it just as a dark old place for veterans to talk about stories of the past and current army personnel to come in and tell stories about the present and that’s wrong,” Hewer said. Despite these challenges, the Peachland legion continues to give back to the community by fundraising at least three days a week, primarily through their meat draw events. As a charitable organization, the legion must give away any charitable funds they raise, which means that even though they may be losing money each month, they continue to fundraise for charities and pass those funds on. Hewer says it would be a huge loss to the community if the legion were to close its doors, since many organizations benefit from donations from the legion. Legion donations go to many different organizations, both national and local, including the Peachland Food Bank, Wellness Centre, and the Boys and Girls Club. “If you lose legions, you lose a lot of services for veterans and armed forces people and seniors housing and youth groups and all kinds of stuff,” Hewer says. “To be perfectly frank, roughly 78 per cent of our income comes from the bar and that’s what keeps our doors open. Charitable work doesn’t keep the doors open because we can’t use any charitable proceeds for operational expenses.” Hewer says if the membership votes not to refinance, the doors likely will be closed at the end of November. “We’ve got strategies we’re trying to implement. That’s why we’re trying to get this line of credit so we can put these strategies in place. We have an active working executive that’s worked really hard over the last nine months to increase revenues and we’ve had some really good successes and some difficulties on other ideas,” Hewer said. June 25 to June 30 is Legion Week in B.C. As part of their Legion Week membership drive, the local branch will host a public open house on Saturday, June 30 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

A preliminary concept plan for the proposed Oasis building shows a main floor with parking spaces, common areas, and some commercial retail space. Conceptual plan Kasper Development Corporation

Positive reception for proposed Oasis building Joanne Layh Editor, Peachland View Peachland could have a four-storey retirement living building downtown by the end of next year if the proposed Oasis project proceeds as planned. The builder and developers hosted their first public open house last week where they presented concept plans that reveal a four-storey retirement living complex that includes three floors of residential units above a main floor of common areas, parking, and some commercial retail space. A spokesperson for the project, builder Doug Kasper, says the project will have somewhere between 51 and 63 residential units in the final design plan and the project could be finished in the next 18 months if all goes well. Over 50 people, most of them seniors, attended the public meeting last week to learn more about the supportive housing project and the type of hospitality services that might be offered to residents.

In the concept plans presented last week, about one-third of the main floor is designated commercial retail space and two-thirds would be a common area for the residents, containing a kitchen and dining area, as well as space for another amenity. “We’re listening to the comments of the seniors today. If there is a growing demand or a special need for common area or space it will be brought in to assist the building at having success for the community. It’s an open palette right now. Those are some ideas that we put on the renderings. It’s not concrete. It’s still shifting depending upon people’s comments,” Kasper told The View. No exterior plans were presented but Kasper says it will be fitting to the area. “The owners of this property had developed the Gateway…I think it would be complementary to that so that it doesn’t detract. I think it would be of the same style,” Kasper said. If built, the Oasis building would be located on the property at 13th Street and Lake Avenue.

OPINION

Peek into the Past

Seniors need to just say ‘no’

Packing House This 1910 building was one of Peachland’s earliest fruit packing houses and it was located on the area now designated Heritage Park. The back was a loading dock for the sternwheelers. Beside this to the left was a cannery and prior to that one of the first jam factories. The Ford Model T truck delivering fruit would indicate that this was taken in about 1924 and the business seems to also be an agency for Studebaker horse drawn wagons and buggies. Much of the fruit was still delivered by horse drawn wagon.

e hate to see seniors taken advantage of by people who prey on their vulnerabilities. A knock on the door by a smooth-talking salesman may be the devil in disguise, and seniors need to be wary about opening their wallets unnecessarily. There are too many horror stories about seniors being scammed out of thousands of dollars. And regardless of how often these stories are published, people are still giving their hard earned money to fly-by-night operators. You know what they say. . . there’s a sucker born every minute, and fools and their money are soon parted. But even suckers can learn to be leery, and the Better Business Bureau has countless tips to help prevent you from getting burned by bad deals. Contractors Solicit at least three bids for the remodelling work you are planning, but do not automatically accept the lowest offer. Ask for local references and inspect the finished project. Ensure that the contractor is properly licensed and bonded. Do not sign a contract with sections left blank, and don’t make final payment until the work is completed. Bank inspector schemes No bank employee or police officer will ever ask you to withdraw your money for any reason. If anyone asks you to do so, call the police or your bank manager right away. People should never discuss personal banking details with someone whose identity they do not know. Lotteries If you’re thinking about responding to a foreign lottery, don’t do it. Ignore all mail and phone solicitations for foreign lottery promotions. If you get what looks like lottery material from a foreign country, turn it over to the Competition Bureau in Canada. By responding to just one foreign lottery offer, you’ve opened the door to many more bogus offers for lottery or investment “opportunities.” Your name will be added to the “sucker list” that fraudulent telemarketers buy and sell. Relative in need scam The bureau warns senior citizens to be aware of an emerging telephone scam that is preying on seniors across North America. For example, a senior citizen receives a distressed phone call from someone who they believe is their grandchild, who says he has been arrested or involved in an auto accident and needs money to post bail or pay for damages. Seniors are asked to confirm the identity of the caller by calling him or her directly or verifying the story with other family members before taking any further action.

Volunteers make this community The Rose Show that was held on Saturday, June 16 again showcased the spirit of volunteering so prevalent in Peachland. The past president of the Kelowna Garden Club commented on how hard the Sowers and Growers had worked to make it a success. One of the rose judges, Malcolm Scott, also from Kelowna, echoed these sentiments when he said his former club in the Lower Mainland was huge but was lucky to get 10 members to organize a show. The Sowers and Growers, along with family and

friends, had 30 workers who not only set up, but also baked for the tea, exhibited roses, provided auction items, and cleaned up in record time. Visitors enjoyed the floral paintings and photographs that provided even more colour to the event. The Peachland Little Schoolhouse terrace tables added a certain charm to the tea setting. Peachland continues to be a great place in which to live due in part to its volunteers. Phyllis Papineau, Sowers and Growers, Peachland

Character and form not historic Like it or lump it! This is the message I got loud and clear from the public hearing on the rezoning of TNI’s Edgewater Inn property. Most people at the meeting were pleased with the overall development plans, but I (and several others) wanted to express our concerns that this building, although a nice enough building, did not follow the guidelines and intention of the downtown charrette report. The building, which will be the centerpiece of downtown Peachland, is situated on one of the first developed sites in the village but does little to reflect the historic nature and village atmosphere of the community. At the beginning of the meeting we were told by both Mayor Fielding and Dave Smith, our planner, that character and form would be discussed later at the building stage. Unfortunately the architect, Shane Worman, stated that he had no intention of changing anything about the building, including character and form. He flippantly said that he did not like the

Mona Lisa, so it was okay if some people did not like his design! This position was further endorsed by Mr. Steve Allison of TNI, who was quoted in the June 15 issue of The View saying, “For the whole town of Peachland, there were three negative comments. I can live with that. You can’t please all of the people all of the time…!” I feel that we who are willing to voice our concerns are being bullied and intimidated. I, like Mr. Allison, have also invested in Peachland. I bought a house here and have chosen to live in the community. I pay my taxes to the municipality and spend money here. How hard would it have been for Mr. Allison and his architect to welcome the input and offer to reconsider character and form at the later stage? TNI’s business goals should not be allowed to ride roughshod over Peachland’s downtown development goals. Carol Smithson, Peachland

MP will give full support to Bill C-38

MP Dan Albas Commentary

This week I will be voting in full support of Bill C-38, the Jobs, Growth and Long-Term Prosperity Act. My support for this bill will be a disappointment for some citizens who for a variety of different reasons oppose the second phase of our government’s Economic Action Plan that is carried out in Budget 2012. When I ran to become a member of parliament I did so with the intent to support a platform that recognizes the importance of jobs and supporting our regional economies. In our region some of the largest employers in communities like Okanagan Falls, Princeton, Merritt and Logan Lake are supported through mining activities and responsible resource development. Many of the spin off industries that also benefit from this industry are located in communities like West Kelowna, Penticton and Summerland. It is also the revenue from resource royalties that help fund the very services that we as Canadians depend upon. When the U.S. housing market collapsed we all watched the resultant decline in our local forestry dependent communities. Mill closures and resulting unemployment in communities where well-paying jobs are in short supply are very serious concerns. While we are fortunate to see our resource sector being revitalized, we must also recognize that it is important to diversify and expand our markets so that our Canadian economy can enjoy more stability. Likewise we must also recognize that in order to diversify to other trading partners we require efficient access not just to the markets themselves but also to our resources. We also cannot ignore that today Canada is facing one of the greatest and most challenging global economic environments in modern day history. While our government is criticized for attempting to do “too much” with Bill C-38, the opposition and supporters are suggesting that Canada should instead do nothing. Obviously this is a point of disagreement and one we have debated about at length. In fact, there has not been a budget bill for the past 20 years to receive as much study as Bill C-38 has. It should also be noted that in spite of opposition claims to the contrary, Budget 2012 is actually a smaller budget document then the bills were for budgets in 2009, 2010, and 2011. Recently our government actually voted to extend the house hours until midnight so that even more debate

could occur. Although not widely reported in the media, it was the NDP who voted against increasing the debate time on Bill C-38. I am reasonably confident that regardless of the amount of bills or debate time allocated, the opposition and supporters would con- These pretty California poppies planted along the Beach Avenue tinue to remain opposed to Budget 2012. walkway are drought-tolerant, self-seeding, and easy to grow in Fortunately, there are some facts that can be agreed gardens. Photo Trudy Williams-Boos upon. During our government’s Economic Action Plan, Canada’s job creation record has been the best in the entire G7. Further, our consecutive budgets have also ensured that Canada’s net debt to GDP ratio is by far the lowest in the G7. More importantly, both the International Monetary Fund and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development have predicted that the Canadian economy will be amongst the very best performing in the industrialized world over the next 24 months. In summary, Budget 2012 continues to build upon the success of Budget 2011 in ensuring that Canada is a leading country in a challenging and fragile international economic environment. I do appreciate that there are those who oppose Bill C-38 and my support for this bill will not be welcomed by them. I have at the Peachland Branch for readers aged 5-12 years heard from and met with many different citizens who Free program runs throughout disagree with this bill much as I have met with a great July and August with special events in July. many who are in full support.

Regional board Dispatches from the farm highlights: June 14 A tale of two radish bunches

Contributed 2011 audited financial statements adopted The regional board has adopted the 2011 audited financial statements for the Regional District of Central Okanagan. A copy is available for viewing online at regionaldistrict.com and at the finance and administration services in the regional district office at 1450 KLO Road, Kelowna. South Slopes Official Community Plan (OCP) The regional board has adopted the new South Slopes Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 1304. This is the first OCP for the area that includes the electoral area outside the City of Kelowna boundary between June Springs Estates and the south portion of Lakeshore Road and was developed after more than one year of extensive public consultation. One of the primary objectives in developing the area OCP is incorporation of several environmental development permit requirements that previously were not in place to ensure the protection of important environmental values and areas. The bylaw also identifies the ‘Kelowna Mountain’ properties as a recreation resort study area, which indicates the secondary planning process required prior to consideration of any future change in land use. Organic solid waste management study The regional board has received a study and report regarding manage-

ment options for organic waste across the Central Okanagan. The assessment evaluated feasible disposal methods for primary categories of organic waste like yard waste, biosolids, white and contaminated wood materials. The study found the current regional organic waste management system offered a high level of sustainability and that contrary to expectations, introducing a segregated food waste collection program wouldn’t likely deliver improved performance and could actually worsen the solid waste management system. As a result, the current program operations and functions will not see any changes. However, they may be adjusted in the future based on changes in provincial mandates. Shorts Creek risk assessment The regional board has received a report prepared by Urban Systems assessing conditions posed by continued erosion from high water levels and flows in Shorts Creek in the Fintry Delta area near Fintry Provincial Park. The board has asked regional district staff to continue efforts to quickly bring together provincial government ministries and agencies to further discussions and possible short-term actions to reduce the potential impacts of further creek erosion and flooding issues that may be caused with future heavy rainfall and protect both road infrastructure and properties.

Jordan Marr Special to the Peachland View

For some time, the price for one of our farm’s Peachland-grown, organically produced radish bunches has been $2. And for some time, I’ve noticed that a similarly sized bunch of California-grown, conventionally produced radishes at Peachland’s IGA is $.79. Ouch! I wince as much as you do, believe me. A trip to the grocery store always involves a peruse of the produce section to see what my California competition is charging and I’m often gobsmacked at the difference. Especially when you consider that that $.79 is being split among IGA, the distributor that shipped the radishes 1,000 miles to get them here, and the farmer who grew them. So what’s the farmer’s cut then? A quarter, maybe? That means she’s getting by with oneeighth the price that we are. How the heck is this possible? I suspect most people, even our most faithful customers, wonder why the premiums demanded for locally grown, organic produce are so high. The answer isn’t straightforward, but I can still take a stab at it by exploring the possibilities. Here’s one: we’re hosing you. In spite of carefully constructed outward appearances (crappy truck; dishevelled, threadbare attire, that polka-dotted bindle I’m always carrying on my shoulder), Vanessa and I are secretive veggie-tycoons who use our vast radish-wealth to fly our helicopter to our various homes that dot the globe like so many flea beetles on our latest crop of arugula. We wish. The reality is that the local food economy is a very com-

petitive one that would very soon punish those who sought to bilk their customers. Check out a local farmers’ market and you’ll find most veggie prices are comparable, which most likely reflects that farmers are charging what they need to make a (rather modest, I assure you) living. Unless I’m part of a local radish cartel that I’m not telling you about... Or perhaps the answer is that the Okanagan’s organic veggie growers are terribly inefficient. But how to define efficiency? Often, the definition leans toward the production of the most food for the cheapest price, period. But that defiJordan nition pays no heed to the billions of tonnes of topsoil that are blown and washed away from the world’s farms each year because of production practices that stress maximum output at the expense of the environment. The list of negative environmental consequences of producing food as ‘cheaply’ as possible is long, and many of those consequences are reduced or even eliminated with organic farming practices. There’s a consequence though: many organic farming practices are more time-consuming, which makes the produce more expensive. Why do so many people spray herbicides on the weeds in the cracks of their driveway rather than just pull them out? Because spraying them is much, much faster. Even if we all agree to factor these environmental problems into the efficiency equation, I can’t be

sure that my California competitor is pillaging the environment to charge what she does. Though when I consider the long hours we work and our ongoing effort to improve our farming and business practices against the fact that her radishes cost the same as two Timbits it makes me wonder. And I just can’t imagine that a whole region of farmers is inefficient. A couple of city-raised doofuses like Vanessa and me? Maybe. But all the organic farmers in the Okanagan? No way. What if we consider that the California radishes are not organic? Here we might find a clue. Marr Our first crop of radishes this year was beautiful, but we lost two-thirds of the second crop to pests. Our competitor’s radishes are most likely sprayed with chemicals to prevent such challenges. And I nearly forgot: California and other warm southern regions can probably grow twice the number of radish crops that we can in a year, a plain old competitive advantage. That sort of thing goes both ways though: right about now, in a cream-coloured sugar shack outside of Davis, California, a beleaguered farmer is writing an essay for his customers to explain why his maple syrup costs $200 per litre. All of the above presupposes that the two radish bunches are exactly the same. I believe otherwise, but that’s for another essay. It’s getting late and our radishes are begging to be weeded. Again.

June is wedding time. According to U.S. statistics, of the estimated 2.3 million weddings that are solemnized each year, the average age of the bride is 25.3 years of age and the groom is 26.9 years of age. Roughly one-third of those getting married each year have been married before. $72 billion a year is spent on wedding receptions, with an average cost $20,000 per wedding and an average guest list of 172 people. Each year approximately $19 billion is spent on wedding gifts through registries. The officiate at many of these marriage ceremonies is likely a pastor or other duly appointed representative of the Holy Christian Church.

Many question whether the Christian wedding is really any different than marriages that take place before a judge or justice of the peace. For Christians, marriage has two natures: a human nature and a divine nature. The human nature of marriage cuts across all marriages. The estate of marriage is defined by government. Statutes and regulations define who can be lawfully married and the process by which the marriage is registered. These regulations also define the legal rights and liabilities of the spouses to the marriage. Marriage creates a partnership. The law requires you take your spouse to the exclusion of all others. You must be faithful to your spouse. Like all partners to a partnership, one spouse can bind the

other spouse to purchases, debts and liabilities. Spouses are legally obligated to support one another. Income tax codes allow spouses to claim one another as dependents and share or split income and losses. If a spouse becomes incapacitated, the other spouse is authorized to make decisions with respect to the care of the incapacitated spouse. Marriage laws are essential for healthy marriages and families. They create legally enforceable rights, obligations and boundaries. While these laws and regulations are necessary for healthy marriages, they do not empower couples to live up to these rules, other than force compliance under the threat of the consequences of breaking a rule. For Christians, marriage has a divine nature. Jesus said, “A man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” (Mark 10:7-9). Ever wonder how God joins a couple together so they are no longer two but become one flesh? The prophet Solomon wrote this gem of wisdom: “A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” (Ecclesiastes 4:12.) The three-stranded cord provides a beautiful image of how God makes two into one. The bride and groom are two of the strands of God’s three-

stranded cord. When God blesses the couple on the day of their marriage, He gives them a third strand that wraps around both of them and binds them together as one. The third strand is made up of love and faith. God created us male and female so we could be fruitful and multiply and live together in lifelong relationships involving intimacy, fidelity and sharing all that comes in life. God uses this attraction and desire to bring the bride and groom together and will continue to use this attraction to keep the couple together. God gives the couple not only love for one another, but also faith and trust in Him and His Word. God’s Word encourages and empowers couples to love one another sacrificially and forgive one another from the heart. Solomon’s short verse reminds couples that many stresses will tug at them and their relationship that could cause their bond to be broken. However, if they believe and trust that God brought them together and has given them the grace and gifts to keep them together, then their three-stranded cord can bear the burdens of life. Is life pulling you and your spouse apart or is your love and faith being tested? Join us at Grace Lutheran Church at 1162 Hudson Road in West Kelowna at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. on Sundays. God will strengthen the cord that binds you.
