Council approves TNI parking agreement Joanne Layh Editor, Peachland View A parking agreement between the district and TNI will go ahead as planned, Peachland council decided at a special council meeting held this week, but not until after much discussion about various issues such as the fairness of the agreement and whether it should be opened up again to public input.

About a dozen people came to the council meeting hoping to speak about various concerns related to the proposed development. “It is clear to me from feedback that I and others have received that many people wanting to comment on the design of the proposed TNI building have ended up feeling angry and frustrated. Angry because they have experienced the process as being

disrespectful, and frustrated because they care about the issues and don’t feel their opinions have been welcomed or heard,” Mayor Fielding said in reference to the disappointment some felt after attending last week’s advisory planning committee meeting. “This is a very unfortunate outcome and one I intend to ensure we address by establishing an additional opportunity for public input on form and character issues, Continued on page 2

District lifts water advisory Children, seniors and people with weakened immune systems can now safely drink Peachland’s water once again. The Peachland Public Works Office has rescinded the water quality advisory that was recently put in place due to higher turbidity levels or dirt particles in the water. The turbidity level is again below 1.0 NTU and that level is now rated “good.”

District opens glass recycling depot

About 25 people attended last week’s advisory planning committee meeting to voice their opinions about the proposed TNI development. Some members of the public left the meeting unsatisfied, prompting the district to issue an announcement that there would be an additional opportunity for public input on form and character issues before the project is granted a development permit.

Peachlanders who have been taking their glass recycling to Asquith Road in West Kelowna or the Boucherie Bottle Depot on Kyle Road in West Kelowna won’t have to make the trip out of town anymore. That’s because a new glass recycling depot has opened in Peachland. The glass recycling depot was recently opened at the Public Works Yard, located at 5379 Princeton Avenue. The depot is open weekdays only. The glass depot will accept all clean glass jars and bottles. Items should be brought in rinsed and empty. Windows, mirrors, cookware or other non-glass recyclables will not be accepted at the depot. Residents should be careful not to place glass in their curbside recycling cart as it can contaminate the other materials and could injure workers, which is why glass is being collected in a separate bin at the recycling depot. For more information about the new depot or recycling, visit, or call the Regional Waste Reduction Office at 250469-6250. The glass recycling depot at the Public Works Yard is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Parking a medium-term solution

Thank-you During the past Saturday afternoon the Peachland Legion held an open house to thank the membership for their continuing support. MLA Bill Barisoff, MP Dan Albas and Mayor Keith Fielding attended. Each of them spoke of the important contributions an active Legion makes to communities across Canada including Peachland. The mayor and his wife, Olive Fielding both purchased memberships as did over 30 others that attended. The 90 people that attended the open house enjoyed music by Brandee and delicious food prepared by Scott Wilshaw and Jim Land. Ruth Krentz was awarded the Legion’s Volunteer of the Year award and those who participated in the meat draw Ruth coordinates raised over $100 dollars which will be used for charitable purposes. The money raised during these events cannot be used for operational expenses, but is funnelled back into the community to groups or individuals that qualify according to B.C. government regulations. The success of this event would not have being possible without the generous support of Effective Printing, Beyond Ink, The View and the volunteers who helped make the event the success it was. To each of them we say: Thank-you.

structured in a way that will ensure respectful consideration and reasoned analysis in light of the charrette report and the Beach Avenue Neighbourhood Plan,” Fielding announced at a special council meeting on Wednesday. Fielding said the public input process would be completed before any development permit applications are granted and promised to announce more details soon. Back in February of this year, TNI revealed their plans to build a three-storey building that would replace the Edgewater and an adjacent building on Beach Avenue. Since then there has been a public hearing and an advisory planning committee meeting to gather public input about the project. Council has demonstrated a strong endorsement for the project and just last month gave the zoning bylaw a third reading, though some members of council still had reservations about the referenced parking covenant and license agreement that makes provisions for the parking requirements of the proposed building, which is why a special council meeting to discuss it was called this week. The parking covenant isn’t a part of the zoning bylaw, but the zoning bylaw references a need for a parking covenant and most councillors were in agreement it would be better to nail down the terms of the parking agreement before the building is built rather than after. As it currently stands, the parking covenant would provide 57 stalls of paved parking for the proposed TNI development in addition to 22 public stalls for a period of five

years, with the option to renew the agreement for another five years. The gravel parking lot, located in the area behind the Edgewater building, is owned by the district and is currently used by the public. As part of the parking agreement, TNI would be required to pave and landscape the parking lot (at a cost estimated between $170,000 and $220,000) and pay 72 per cent of maintenance and repair costs throughout the term of the agreement. At the end of the 10year period, TNI would be required to provide another parking option and the district’s improved parking lot would return to public use. While council made the decision to approve the parking covenant, not all members of council found it to be an ideal agreement. “I do not consider the district giving away 40-plus parking spaces a win situation,” Councillor Kerbes said. “I don’t know why the parking dilemma created by this development became the district’s problem to solve.” “Peachland puts on many special events. More than two-thirds of it should not be for the exclusive use of TNI and its employees,” Councillor Fortin said. “I think we are in danger of looking at this issue in the very short-term and in isolation,” Councillor Condon told his colleagues. “I’m also very cognisant of the Sustainable Downtown Peachland Plan and the comments about surface parking. I see this as a transition to the situation that does meet the described criteria in that plan. We’re not in a position, nor is any developer, to be able to snap fingers and have a completely revitalized downtown. This is going

to take us some time and some money as well. It is not a perfect arrangement but as a transition arrangement, I believe it is a good arrangement and I can live with it.” Councillor Schierbeck also agreed it was an acceptable medium-term arrangement until something better can be done in the future. “Utopia would be definitely a parkade,” he said. “I also understand that’s very costly and nobody wants to expend those kinds of funds. I think the process we are going through here could well be the catalyst to that stage in the future.” Some councillors also questioned the fairness of the arrangement because it calls for less stalls and in the past other businesses have had to contribute large sums of cash in lieu of providing parking stalls. Since the charrette report calls for a 25 per cent reduction in parking, the number of stalls required has been reduced to reflect that, chief administrative officer Elsie Lemke said. “I know that this is very messy,” Mayor Fielding said. “It’s a difficult issue. One of the reasons for that is we’re beginning the process with one step and there are going to be multiple steps as this unfolds. We want to encourage downtown revitalization. It’s been a central part of our priorities as a council… the parking is difficult but what we have here is a practical way forward that may not be ideal but I think is quite reasonable.” As it currently stands, the parking agreement does not contain any particulars about hours, so it may yet be possible that TNI-designated parking would be made available to the public at certain hours.

District of Peachland regular council meeting highlights - June 26 Contributed 2012 Annual Report Council approved the 2012 Annual Report as presented at the June 26 regular council meeting. Under the Community Charter, the district is legislatively required to prepare an annual report for the preceding year for public review and comment. The report details the previous years activities and establishes objectives and measurements for each department for the upcoming year, as well as objectives and measurements that are tied to council’s strategic priorities and financial plans.

Free Rotary Wi-Fi downtown The two white boxes that appeared on two Beach Avenue lampposts recently represent one more reason to visit downtown Peachland. Launched on July 1, these Wi-Fi transmitters provide free internet access to residents and visitors from the Peachland Museum to 4th Street and up to 500 feet into Lake Okanagan. The Wi-Fi zone was designed by local Rotarian Brian Junnila. The service is funded through a partnership between Peachland Rotary Club, the district, and the chamber. The Peachland Rotary Club donated $13,115 toward the project in equipment and in-kind contributions, the district contributed a one-time cost of $1,775 in addition to a monthly $70 contribution for a three-year term, and the Peachland Chamber contribute $125 per month for the service. Over 100 people used the free Wi-Fi service on Canada Day. Contributed photo

Peek into the Past

Small buggies in short supply

Upper Princeton 1910

Joanne Layh Editor, Peachland View

Plenty of sun and good air circulation is needed to produce a bountiful crop of fruit. The growing and picking of fruit has long been established in the Okanagan, as this picker is seen plucking ripe fruit from a tree. These fruit pickers were working in an orchard in the Upper Princeton area in 1910.


hile I generally prefer to buy most of my groceries at the farmers market or at a smaller B.C. owned store, from time to time I head over to a certain big box store to pick up pop or toilet paper and other things like that. I realize big box stores are all about going big – big sizes, big selection, big store – but does everything have to be massive? I’m talking about the shopping buggies, here. I’m sure those massive buggies are great for people who have big families or need to stock up, such as Hutterite families who only come into town once in a while to load up on supplies, for example, and I am not suggesting there is anything wrong with that. But for the single girl, they’re not very practical. They’re so huge they’re actually difficult to manoeuvre, and I only need about a quarter of the cart or less to fit my items into. Occasionally, I spot a small buggy in the parking lot and practically make a run for it before someone else snatches it. But for the most part, the only time I ever see a small buggy is when it is in the tight clutches of someone else who has the same needs I do. There are dozens if not hundreds of large buggies available at any given time, but try to find just one small buggy and you’ll find it nearly impossible. Sure, there are baskets available, but they don’t help hold my pop or toilet paper. I suspect the store management believes that if they provide mostly bigger buggies then people will buy more to fill them up. You won’t find those massive obesity carts outside of North America, I think it is safe to say. I can appreciate these stores cater to families since that is who their main market is. However, I’m sure there are also millions of single people who shop there. We spend money, too.

Charrette report not written in stone I applaud Steve [Allison of TNI] and his architect for finally saying enough is enough and putting these naysayers in their place where they belong. If it takes a measure of intimidation, then so be it. If you don’t like it, move. I built a house years ago for a very wealthy man in Alberta. He asked me one day if I

knew what the golden rule was. He said, “Ernie, he who has the gold makes the rule.” I understand there can be extremes to this concept but we have someone here who has some gold and he is willing to invest it in Peachland. I too attended the charrette process and although there were some

good ideas that came out of it, it wasn’t written in stone and there wasn’t a rush of developers interested in implementing every idea that was suggested by a bunch of concerned citizens acting in the role of amateur planners. Talk is cheap. Ernie Hurd, Peachland

Boo to loud motorbikes Reflective vests and full-face helmets save lives. Loud pipes are just annoying. Do you think Peachland could be the second city in Canada to implement noise-snare technology to put a muffler on a million two-wheeled road cannons? Every doctor, lawyer and housewife in Western Canada has pitched their muffler into the trash to play the part, and there are another thousand of them

on the roads here every summer. I love watching folks enjoy a ride on a gorgeous day, but I watched a bike roll through town on the weekend that was so loud it made a little kid burst into tears. If no one is speaking up about the issue, it’s because moments of silence have become so rare that they have to be savoured.  Pete Couillard, Peachland

Historic is not the answer In the June 29 issue of the Peachland View, M.R. Henderson’s letter to the editor calls for a pioneer-era theme in downtown Peachland. Although I respect her opinion and thoughtful argument, I disagree. As Ms. Henderson points out, historic buildings (Baptist Church, Little Schoolhouse, Primary School, etc.) have been preserved for the benefit and enhancement of the community. One would hope that existing structures of historical value will continue to be preserved. However, new buildings should not be constructed with a 1900’s façade. The result would only be an unattractive mix of buildings, some existing unchanged and some new buildings made to try to look old. At best, downtown would be striving to look like a Hollywood set of an old cowboy movie. Ms. Henderson points out that communities such as Chemainus, Barkerville and Fort Langley have themes such as murals, gold rush and a trading post to attract visitors. None of these communities have the natural beauty of Peachland. We Peachlanders are stewards of a beautiful, natural area that is loved by residents and visitors alike. The lake, foreshore, swim bay, mountains, views, clean air, slower pace are the attraction. The downtown

doesn’t need any dressing up with any sort of themes to make it more desirable. As the downtown is developed, we should be striving for well-designed, functional, aesthetically pleasing structures constructed with high-quality building materials giving a feeling of quality and permanence. I am pretty certain most of us would be disappointed with civic blocks of square, two-tone beige stucco structures. We have felt the “Peachland vibe” downtown for the past few summers. This unique experience can be enhanced with a vibrant, unique, even eclectic downtown with a strong influence from our talented visual and performing arts community. Yes, talk is cheap, and realistically, perhaps we cannot financially achieve the Sydney Opera House on our foreshore, but a part of me also asks, “Why not?” Bold dreams, aspirations and decisions will be judged much more kindly by future generations than mediocrity ever will. The cost per square foot of a well-designed building isn’t much different from uninspired architecture. And we certainly don’t need to copy Barkerville or Kimberley models.  Rodney J. Irwin, Peachland

Bye-bye, beloved trees Ode to the bistro trees The trees that were our pride and joy, Were stolen from outside our door. In heavy pots, two sturdy pines, They really made our front door shine. The restaurant doorway’s not the same, Our décor’s gone, it’s such a shame. The lovely hanging baskets too, Full of flowers of every hue. Taken, empty, nothing left, Our outdoor patio’s bereft. We hope the Peachlanders will see, We tried so hard for our property,

MP Dan Albas One of my favourite times of the year has always been Canada Day. Since becoming a Member of Parliament I have found new meaning to the celebration for all that is great about our amazing nation. As Canadians we have a sincere love for our country and the values we share that makes this special place we live in like no other in the world. We may not always agree, but we disagree respectfully and show tolerance, compassion and understanding for those around us. Collectively the hard work and sacrifice that came before us shaped a nation we continue to build upon today. Yesterday visiting communities such as West Kelowna, Peachland, Penticton, and Okanagan Falls proved that in spite of what the weather brings, Canadians will not be denied an opportunity to share in the enjoyment of one of our most special days of the year. Over the past 12 months I’ve encountered a few noteworthy events I believe illustrate the values that are unique to the special quality of life we enjoy as Canadians.

I am also mindful of the 158 Canadians we have lost in service while in Afghanistan. In many of our communities the cenotaphs serve us reminders of those brave Canadians who have given the supreme sacrifice of service to our great nation. To the friends and families who lost loved ones, we will never forget your loss nor the values we continue to defend against those who would do us harm. During my time in Ottawa I have had a chance to meet some of those who have served in Afghanistan. It is a life changing experience for many of them. To serve in an environment where there is so little when in Canada we are fortunate to have so much, is often a difficult transition when returning back home. Even seeing the green grass, forests, the mountains and the hills is something that citizens in other parts of the world may never see in a lifetime. Although Canada Day may come only once a year, I believe we should always be mindful to make the most of each and every day we enjoy as Canadians living in this blessed and beautiful country we all call home.

P.S. In future buy your own damn trees, You’ll find them at Bylands Nurseries! 

Dick and Vanessa de Boer the bistro, Peachland

Left turns onto 13th illegal I was driving by the construction of the new roadwork and realignment of 13th Street just after the newly painted road lines where done. Has no one else noticed that making a left turn from San Clemente on to 13th Street will be dangerous, and by law, illegal? The last time I looked, crossing a double solid yellow line was illegal. The rules regarding double solid yellow lines on British Columbia highways have not changed. They require that a driver remain to the right of them at all times. Technically, this means that as soon as your left side tires stray onto the lines themselves, you have broken

those rules. You are not even allowed to cross them in order to avoid an obstruction on the highway as you may with single lines or a combination of single and broken lines. Shame on whomever is responsible for road safety and construction in this town. In my opinion, San Clemente should have been closed off as a dead end road. This would be safer for people turning right onto 13th from the south, left from the north and anyone turning left or right from San Clemente. Not to mention that it is an illegal left turn.

The trips cost $5, except for the trip to Camp Arrowflight, which is free. Pick up and drop off will be at the Peachland Community Center. If this isn’t possible, other arrangements can be made. If you are planning to come on any of the trips below call or text Caleigh at 250-859-3893 to register and save your spot:

Whether you are interested in the leading role or helping design costumes and props, all youth are needed. Rehearsals will take place from 10 a.m. to noon at 4th Street Place from August 20 – 24, with a

performance to be held on the 24th. There are also two special events planned for the summer.

The second event will be on August 17 from 2 – 3 p.m. at Cousins Park. Be sure to wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty because splat! We are having a paint balloon fight. If you’re not quite a youth, but between the ages of six and 12, and you still want to participate in fun programs this summer, come and check out Fired Up Fridays every Friday at the community centre from 12 – 4 p.m. This drop-in program is free for all Boys and Girls Clubs members. Call the Webber Road Centre

at 250-768-3049 for more information. For more than 100 years, Boys and Girls Club in communities across Canada have been helping young people to discover, and achieve their best potential as they grow to become Canada’s future adults, citizens and leaders, by engaging them in activities that challenge and help them develop healthy minds and bodies. Clubs help prepare children and youth for life by helping them to discover and develop their abilities and skills, building confidence and competence. Club staff also help build selfesteem by empowering youth to help shape programs and share their ideas. Through these opportunities youth are given the chance to develop life and leadership skills and to learn how to contribute to clubs and their communities.

The Peachland View - 11


Dispatches from the farm Coming soon: Fetal carrots Jordan Marr Special to the Peachland View Have you ever read The Doubter’s Companion by John Ralston Saul, one of Canada’s great thinkers? Subtitled A Dictionary of Aggressive Common Sense, it’s comprised of a few hundred satirical and very sardonic definitions of words and ideas most of us take for granted. It’s far and away my favourite bathroom book, and it came to mind when I received a visit recently from a chef inquiring about our produce. Here’s an excerpt from Saul’s definition of white bread: It’s the sophisticated product of a civilization taken to its logical conclusion: essential goods... have been continually refined until all utility has been removed. Utility is vulgar. In this particular case, nutrition and fibre were the principal enemies of progress. With the disappearance of utility what remains is form, the highest quality of

high civilizations. To refine flour beyond utility is to become refined. Back to my walkabout with the chef: he had come looking for veggies to include in a multi-course dinner for 12 he was to prepare the following evening. The diners had paid a lot for this privilege by way of

Jordan Marr a charity auction, and he intended to prepare something really special. As we toured the farm I showed him some nice stuff: some really tender baby arugula and buttery baby spinach; richly coloured baby beets; our gourmet salad greens and

the first shelling peas of the season. “Have you got any micro-greens?” he asked. Micro-greens are very popular with chefs lately. They’re harvested a few days after a seed germinates when each individual green is 2-3 cm tall. Five or six of them are often gingerly sprinkled on an entree just before it’s served. I told him we didn’t grow them. Next he asked for pea shoots; these are the growing tips of young pea plants, the upper 5 cm of which are very succulent owing to the plant being so young. We didn’t have those either; we pretty much just grow our pea plants for, well, the peas. We walked some more before he stopped short and eagerly pointed at one of garden beds and asked what he was looking at. I told him fava beans, and assumed he would next implore me to promise to save him some of the beans once they were harvested in six weeks or so.

“The shoots of fava plants are very tender,” he said, just before breaking one off and plunking it in his mouth. “Delicious.” It was then that I realized our baby spinach and baby argula and baby beets were insufficient for being much, much too old. Vegetables by then have developed such pedestrian traits as taste, colour and the sort of texture that requires the use of one’s teeth, and thus wouldn’t do for the meal this chef had in mind. It occurred to me to take him out to a recently germinated bed of what will eventually become baby carrots with a pair of tweezers to snatch them out before they’re ruined (we could call them fetal carrots, maybe?) but I decided against it. I didn’t think my eyes were up to the challenge that day. I’m exaggerating the sense of vexation I felt. But I was vexed, a little. I decided to be a farmer much more out of a desire to sate people’s hunger than to grow dainty

foodie ornamentation. I’ve had great business relationships with chefs in the past, and the ones who support local agriculture, including this chef, play an important role as ambassadors for what we farmers do, to say nothing of their direct contributions to our livelihoods. But in their drive for originality and refinement, I think there is a risk of forgetting that we’re all in the business, at the heart of it, of feeding people. In the end, the chef settled for some regular old normal-sized greens and some shelling peas. Fifteen pods, to be exact, which is about 75 peas; more than enough to sprinkle on each plate as a garnish. Jordan Marr grows veggies at the Homestead Organic Farm in Peachland and offers home delivery to area residents. For more information visit

Taste of Wine Country: Cruising the vineyards Bruce Fuller Special to the Peachland View A couple of seasons ago I came across a racing barstool located in Penticton. The chair itself was one of those bright shiny jobs that would’ve fit right in with a kitchen chrome set from a Lucille Ball movie and had a black and white checkered top of real leather. You could picture Elvis propped on it eating a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Who the hell would think to race a barstool? I can see folks racing to a barstool, then racing off it to the last cab after the final bell…but racing them on the street or a track? Not likely. When I searched “racing bar-

stools” online, I found a number of clubs in California (none in Napa or Sonoma). I bought it thinking if we topped it with one of our wrecked old saddle rigs, added a funky horse tail, and maybe a lasso and tied the contraption to one of our hitching rails, guests might get a kick out of it and the photo op thing would work for us all. We thought it appropriate to give our new horse a name and figured that, “Corky” would be just fine in our setting. Now, Corky doesn’t kick but it can sure as hell get to bucking and has gone ballistic more than once. On the dead end road below us I’ve cranked her up to some

43 km/h. I also discovered taking her between the Gewurztraminer rows

Bruce Fuller where the odd boulder jumps up is not a great idea. In addition to the barstool, we also have an old golf cart for cruising the rows. It huffs and puffs, hacks the odd cough, and never goes fast enough, it seems. Katie, our Golden Retriever, head of security,

and certified alpha-bitch, has owned the passenger seat side since we rolled the Yamaha off the garden trailer. Clown-like Lara, our Old English sheepdog is relegated to fixing her claws to the floorboards by the gas pedal and brake. It’s not a good idea because when she spots a runaway Quail family, she shifts her bum over the gas and we’re off on a merry chase. Then there are our visiting cruisers. Hundreds of car buffs with custom paintwork and chrome bits buffed to the hilt, trek up our dusty gravel driveway to the winery. Their investments in both time and cash are phenomenal and a bit of road dust seems okay with them

as many are packing soft little wipes and boxes of magnetic Swiffers. Surrounding the property and regaling all within earshot of the marvels they’ve created or written cheques for, they picnic, sip enough to guarantee a dingless return to their heated garages, and work hard at bragging rights. Then along come the motor homes, convoys of my-SUV’s-bigger-thanyours, the offroaders, and every vehicle ever seen in the housewives of here or there. Bruce Fuller is the founder and proprietor of Rustico Farm & Cellars in Oliver, B.C. For more information visit

We have seasons in our lives. As we press into the presence of God and to His heartbeat, as we apply His word, for those around us and ourselves, God gives us the victory. There are seasons of training that everyone goes though in life. As a child you tied your shoes, but you had to be taught how to do that. Then you learned how to tell time. Some time after that you learned how to drive a car. These were all seasons where you learnt something and grew to the next level. It is the same with a Christian. You go from level to level, as you learn and apply God’s word in your life. Will you make mistakes? Oh yes, but God is greater than any mistake and He will always get you through. It is important to note that if you feel like you are “stuck” you can get out of that stuck position. Usually when you feel that way, God is prompting you to go forward. How is your walk with the Lord? Two ingredients are: The word of God and your prayer life. These are daily ingredients that must be adhered to so that we are growing and expanding in the Kingdom of God. So what does this mean? Take time to read The Bible and hear from God. He will speak to you personally about your relationship with Him. Pray. What that means is talk to Him. Ask, seek and knock. Matthew 7:7-11 gives us a clear example

of this. Matthew 7:7-11(amplified) “Keep on asking and it will be given you, keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you. For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, [the door] will be opened. Or what man is there of you, if his son asks him for a loaf of bread, will hand him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will hand him a serpent? If you then, evil as you are, know how to give good and advantageous gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven [perfect as He is] give good and advantageous things to those who keep on asking Him!” Are you being obedient to the last instruction from the Lord? Many are looking for the next word from God, but have yet to fulfill the last instruction from Him. You will not be going forward until you fulfill your last instruction. I encourage you to get a book, and write down His instructions to you. It will help keep you on track and on target. How are you spending your time? Who are you spending your time with? The books you read and the people you hang out with or are around will determine the direction of your life in five years. I am determined to hang out with Jesus, to hang out with people who encourage my dreams, who inspire me to greatness, who live a life uncompromisingly in the face of God. I hope you make that same decision. It is a decision. You are in control of your life and you determine the direction you will go. Remember, it is God and God alone who gives us increase in our lives. He will put men and women before us to teach us His word. God will breathe inspiration into you through these teachings and experiences. What are you doing in your life? Some people are getting ready to get ready to get ready. They spend their lives on the edge of greatness, never daring to go and do that thing that burns within them. I have seen so many people who are waiting for perfection before release. Release comes when you choose to obey God (in His timing) and move ahead. There is so much to this but remember this, it is important to have a plan, but also recognize there is a point where the “leap of faith is required”. Be diligent, and comprehensive but don’t get stagnated by the perfection trap. Life is a journey and not “an arrival”. This excerpt was taken from the book, Orchid in the Snow by Denise Adams.

Fielding retires from Wellness Centre Judy Wyper Special to the Peachland View

In June Olive Fielding retired from being the Wellness Centre seniors outreach coordinator. Fielding joined the board of the Peachland Wellness Centre (PWC) in 2004, volunteering at first in many ways, including the bereavement group. In 2005 she began volunteering in the Peachland Reaching Out to Seniors program, linking people together for companionship and services. In 2006 Fielding began working together with Wendy Howard in the Seniors Aging In Place program. Until her retirement last month, Fielding helped link people to the wide variety of services they need. The job of seniors outreach coordinator is straightforward in its description, but it requires vigilance, a lot of knowledge, making connections, and time. The human factor

ensured that things would not be as straightforward as one might hope. Fielding put in time each day, because people have needs every day. She spent time sitting in the hospital with people and spent time comforting loved ones. She spent time driving people to medical appointments and spent time with them when they were worried. The PWC was fortunate to have Fielding as part of its family of friends. But of course she is not really leaving us. Yes, she has retired. Yes, she won’t be an employee, but she plans to stay on as a volunteer, which is how she started. She has come full circle. We wish her well in all her future activities. Meanwhile, Wendy Howard, our program coordinator, is taking over the duties of the seniors outreach coordinator. She knows many of the participants in the program, and has an avid interest in being able to continue to bring support

to people who want to be linked to information, services, or other people. The office staff continue to be an integral part of this service. During the June Volunteer Appreciation Tea Papa Thom, one of our board members entertained us. A fine time was had by all socializing and singing and witnessing the raffle fundraiser draw. Congratulations to the following winners: • Gretzky lithograph prize: June Kilpatrick; • Papa Thom Dinner prize: Grace Klock; and • Summerland Golf package prize: J. Denbigh. We are happy to report we found a nutritious source of wholesome meals for our Meals to Go program.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 You can have all the inspiration in the world, Aries, but without solid financial backing, your enterprise will not find its wings. Spend your energy finding investors.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 While some people are revved up with energy, Leo, you will seem to be stuck in neutral this week. Don’t fret too much about it unless you have deadlines you need to meet.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, you may be adept at finding an easy way around a difficult thing, but sometimes taking the harder road offers good life lessons along the way.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 You are torn between two choices, Taurus. Family matters are on one side and work responsibilities are on the other. It may take a few days to work out a decision.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, these next few days you will want to do activities that put yourself first. Whether it’s a date or simply alone time, enjoy it and stop neglecting your needs.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 It’s difficult to contain all of your energy, Gemini, so instead you can choose to share some with others. Try tackling some other people’s projects until your energy wanes.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Vacations tend to bring the relaxed side out in a person, and it can be hard assimilating back into your regular routine. You, however, have no problem getting back into a groove.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 When money issues arise, the only way to remedy them is to stop spending. This could involve taking a hard look at your lifestyle and what you may not be able to afford.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Some people may view you as being selfish this week, Cancer, but you view your actions as putting yourself first for a change. Either way, it’s a decidedly “you-centered” few days.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Turning a hobby into something that makes money is an admirable goal, but it will take a little work, Scorpio. Don’t give up too easily as it could take a few months to solidify.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Everyone expects you to dole out the advice, Aquarius, but this week you will be looking for your own. It could be because you have been tackling so many projects lately. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 There are few things that escape your attention, Pisces. However, this week you will be blindsided by certain news.
