Members of the Canadian Coast Guard were in Peachland on Wednesday to provide containment response training to members of Peachland Fire and Rescue, as well as fire crews from Kelowna, West Kelowna and Penticton Indian Band. Peachland is home to the coast guard’s boom trailer containing response supplies that can be mobilized throughout the regional district anytime there is an on-water need for pollution mitigation, such as a vessel leaking hydrocarbons.

Hallmark production crew shooting another movie in Peachland JOANNE LAYH A Hallmark production crew arrived in Peachland this week to film a new movie, “A Town Called Love”. Filming was scheduled to begin on Aug 3 at two private residences on Princeton Ave, followed by filming in various public and private downtown locations from Aug 8 - 10. Director of community

services Cory Labrecque says district staff have been engaging with Hallmark’s location company to proactively find ways to minimize disruptions to businesses, traffic and parking. Location manager Matheson Kincaid told the View as soon as he read the script he immediately thought of Peachland because the movie is set in a town called Love that

features Love Lake and includes a ton of walk

When he called up the director, who grew up

It was meant to be filmed in Peachland.”

and talks along beautiful parks next to the lake.

- matheson kincaid

spending summers at his grandmother’s house in

Peachland, he was apparently thinking the same thing. “It was meant to be filmed in Peachland,” said Kincaid. “After a typical big city girl’s car breaks down, she falls in love with Love [the town] and the mayor’s hunky son and decides to stay and live happily ever after,” reads a synopsis of the script. One scene will feature

a book reading gala set in Heritage Park. Other scenes will take place in front of the municipal office as well as along Centennial Way. Kincaid says he’s not sure what channel the movie will air on or when. Whenever it does air, there’s no doubt some residents will be interested to see Peachland on the small screen once again.

Extreme temperatures, dry conditions and the high-extreme fire danger rating prompted the regional district to implement a campfire ban throughout all Central Okanagan municipalities and electoral area fire service areas just ahead of the B.C. Day long weekend. At this time the regional district is reminding people to remember that smoking is not allowed in any local parks in the Central Okanagan. Within the District of Peachland smoking is also prohibited in children’s play areas, sports fields, undeveloped parks and wilderness trails. In addition, to prevent accidental fires and injuries, all fireworks are banned within the Central Okanagan, unless specifically permitted by a local fire department. All open burning has been prohibited within the Central Okanagan since April 30. As of noon on Thursday, Aug 4, BC Wildfire Service will expand the ban to all areas throughout the Kamloops Fire Centre, which is currently experiencing hot and dry conditions. Fire danger ratings are generally “high” or “extreme” throughout the area. This campfire prohibition will remain in effect until noon on Oct. 15 or until the orders are rescinded. As of noon on Thursday, Aug 4, the following activities are prohibited: • Campfires as defined in the Wildfire Regulation; • Category 2 open fire as defined in the Wildfire Regulation; • Category 3 open fire as defined in the Wildfire Regulation; • Fireworks; • Sky lanterns; • Burn barrels or burn cages of any size or description; • Binary exploding targets; • Tiki and similar kind of torches; and • Chimineas, outdoor stoves and other portable campfire apparatuses not CSA or ULC approved. These prohibitions apply to all public and private land within the Kamloops Fire Centre jurisdiction, unless specified otherwise in an enactment (e.g. in a local government bylaw). BC Wildfire warns that anyone found in contravention of an open burning prohibition may be issued a ticket for $1,150, required to pay an administrative penalty of up to $10,000 or, if convicted in court, fined up to $100,000 and/or sentenced to one year in jail. If the contravention causes or contributes to a wildfire, the person responsible may be ordered to pay all firefighting and associated costs. To report a wildfire, or open burning violation, call 800 663 5555 or *5555 on a mobile phone.

Legion, pharmacy and medical centre to get makeover during mural fest

PHOTO ALEX MORRISON

The public will be invited to watch as the historic Peachland Legion receives a mural that will be a unique interpretation of gratitude and remembrance.

JOANNE LAYH Exterior walls of the Peachland Legion, Peachland Pharmacy and Peachland Medical Centre are about to be transformed for the town’s inaugural mural festival, which is set to take place over the Labour Day long weekend from Sep 2 - 4. Festival organizers say the first mural artists will be arriving in town this week with others following through the month. The grand finale and mural unveilings will take place during the outdoor Making Waves Mural Festival. “With a world-class line up of professional mural artists, and a slate of local musicians, other performers and kid’s entertainment, the family-friendly festival celebrates public art and building community,” says Peachland Community Connects Society chair Shelley Sweeney. The Making Waves Mural Festival is organized by the society with a mission to bring specific areas within Peachland to life with murals and public art. The murals will feature Peachland-related themes, such as water, wildlife, community, reconciliation, and positivity. The artists welcome everyone to come by and chat and to learn more about their works. “While most people would agree that Peachland is one of the Okanagan’s most beautiful towns, the back streets are grey and unwelcoming,” says Sweeney. “We want to create a year-round outdoor art gallery that will encourage visitors and delight residents 12 months of the year.”

A proposal for a mural festival was first presented to the community in April 2021, when Peachland Community Connects Society came to council hoping for their endorsement of the mural project and permission to use some of the district owned buildings as possible canvases. At that time then chief administrative officer Joe Mitchell recommended that should council wish to entertain a decision on public art, that a policy be implemented prior to proceeding. He added that given their current workload, staff wouldn’t be able to complete all of the research and policy creation that would be required for a 2021 mural festival. However, the Tourism and Economic Development Committee (TEDC) volunteered to complete the background research on a policy, including review of similar policies from other municipalities in the province, and council directed them to complete the research with input from the Peachland Community Arts Council. Since then, a public art policy has been implemented, which establishes a long-term vision for public art in Peachland and provides a framework for program administration and management. However, no municipally owned buildings will be featured in this year’s event. This year’s fest will see three walls in Peachland transformed by mural artists, with wall donors including Peachland Pharmacy, Peachland Medical Centre and Peachland Legion #69.

“There is nothing more peaceful and awe-inspiring than the beauty of art -- and I can’t think of a better canvas than that of our scenic town of Peachland, said Mayor Cindy Fortin. “The vibrant and skillful mural creations will only enhance our community with colour and story. With

the new art policy in place, it is the perfect time for the inaugural Peachland mural festival, and I look forward to it becoming an annual event.” Programs, schedules, and information about the artists and performances can be found at peachlandmakingwaves.com.

Goose cull in Peachland long overdue Dear Joanne, A goose cull? It’s about time. The leave diseased excrement all over our sidewalks and green spaces. Our dogs eat it and bring the disease into our yards and homes.

The green spaces are unusable because of all the goose shit! It is unacceptable, in my opinion. This should have been taken care of long ago. Glen Shaw, Peachland

Concerns about affordability and inflation DAN ALBAS MP Since I was first elected I have used the summer months, generally passing on speaking opportunities, and embarking on a listening tour -- throughout the riding -- to hear the concerns of local citizens. One of the greatest things about this riding is the vast diversity of the people who live in our various communities. Some within more densely populated urban areas -- others in smaller towns and there are those in unincorporated rural areas. In turn each fall when the House resumes, I share the concerns raised in Ottawa. This year, unlike any other, there is a different tone to what I am hearing. Affordability, given re-

cord high inflation and the direction of our governments at all levels, has been a concern in many communities. Healthcare, such as the inability to get a doctor or having to travel significant distances for a health care related services, are ongoing challenges. Many citizens have talked about the sheer frustration of trying to drive in and out of Kelowna either via Hwy 97 or the Coquihalla and the ensuing traffic gridlock adds stress and anxiety that some have said left them unwilling to make the trek. Overall, there is a sense that various governments are failing to provide basic core services and are more focused on other areas that many view as non-essential.

There is also a concern of increased government secrecy and in inability to get simple, clear answers why services are delayed and when they will be restored and/or available locally. From my own perspective there is no question that, even as an elected official, it has become more challenging to obtain information from the federal government departments and agencies that I often deal with. Likewise, I have heard of similar challenges from citizens attempting to obtain information from Interior Health. From a traffic standpoint, aside from the flood related damage to the Coquihalla that is currently under repair, that last major Fed-

eral/Provincial partnership projects to decrease traffic congestion within this region was the widening between Summerland and Peachland as well as significant widening of portions of Hwy 3 between Princeton and Hope. Both projects were completed prior to 2015 and there has been significant growth since. The intent of this week’s report is not to pick on any one level of government or agency/department related to government but rather to ask a simple question. How satisfied are you with the current state of government service delivery in your community? I can be reached at Dan. Albas@parl.gc.ca or call toll free 800 665 8711.

FOR SENIORS Simple ways to lessen your financial load after 50 By the time people reach their fiftieth birthday, many have begun to imagine what their life in retirement may look like. Though data from the U.S. Census Bureau indicates the number of people working into their 70s increased significantly during the first two decades of the twentieth century, the vast majority of professionals still call it a career sometime during their 60s. Retirement may still be a long way off for people who are 50 or in their early 50s, but around this time thoughts of what retirement could be compel many people to seek ways to reduce their financial load in anticipation of the day when they will no longer be working. Cutting back needn’t be complicated, and the following are some simple ways for individuals 50 and over to save money. • Address unsecured debt. Unsecured debt, which can include credit card balances and medical bills, tends to carry higher interest rates than debts that carry a collateral requirement. According to the Federal Reserve, roughly 12.5 per cent of individuals over 50 still have student loan debt, which is another type of unsecured debt. If possible, people over 50 should pay off these debts immediately or make their best effort to pay extra each month so they are paid off as soon as possible. • Pay in “cash.” It’s not enough to simply pay off unsecured debt like consumer credit. It’s also important to stop accruing additional debt. Individuals over 50 should resist the temptation to use their credit cards, instead paying with cash or debit cards. Credit card debt is often characterized as a problem for young consumers, but a 2021 report from ValuePenguin found that the median credit card debt among individuals between the ages of 55 and 64 was higher than it was for consumers aged 35 to 44. Paying in cash, whether it’s with paper currency or a debit card, ensures you’re not digging yourself into debt. • Reexamine your housing situation. Adults 50 and over who purchased their home in their late 20s or early 30s are likely nearing the maturity date on their mortgages. If so, paying a little extra toward the principal each month will help you pay off that mortgage a good deal earlier than if you keep paying the same amount you’ve been paying for years. Though paying extra money each month may not seem like reducing your financial load, it will do so considerably over time. For example, the financial experts at Wells Fargo note that individuals with a fixed-rate mortgage loan of $200,000 at four per cent can cut the term of that loan by more than 4.5 years by paying as little as $100 extra each month toward their principal.

owners over 50 who have already paid off a significant percentage of their mortgage loans could reach maturity much sooner if they start paying more toward principal now. Since housing costs are many people’s greatest expense, removing a mortgage payment from your financial SPRING INTO RETIREMENT LIVING

COVID-19 vaccine clinics for kids between 6 mos. and four years old

Trustee Candidate Information Meeting

PEACHLAND VIEW Interior Health is now offering COVID vaccine clinics for kids under five and is encouraging parents to register children now at getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca. The clinics provide children between the ages of six months and four years old with a COVID-19 vaccine specifically formulated for this age group. “Vaccination against COVID-19 is still the best way to reduce the risk of getting really sick and needing to be hospitalized due to COVID-19,” said Dr. Carol Fenton, medical health officer with IH. “While children are at lower risk of severe disease from COVID-19 compared to adults, they can still get very sick. The vaccine is safe and effective in preventing serious illness from COVID-19.” Once registration is complete, parents will be invited to book an appointment at their local community clinic. Interior Health says parents can also register children younger than six months, so they can be invited to book an appointment once the child becomes eligible for the vaccine. Appointments are necessary for these vaccines and will be held in “child-friendly local immunization clinics.” The pediatric COVID-19 vaccines are not available in pharmacies. For more information about COVID-19 vaccines for children, visit interiorhealth.ca.

Fair calling on first-timers to enter TAMI THERIAULT

PRESIDENT, PEACHLAND FALL FAIR The first time I entered my peach pie into the Peachland Fall Fair I was so nervous! My friends and family loved my pie but what would the judges think? Would they think my flaky crust was delicious or would they find another baker’s crust to be of better quality and flavour? I ended up taking second place that year and the lucky winner of first place was honoured with their name engraved on the trophy for best peach pie! Many of our volunteers enter items into the fair. Some are talented in handicrafts, some in photography, some in baking, and some have several entries in different sections. There are folks who enter items into the fair looking to be a fierce competitor and some who enter things just for the joy of making and growing and sharing their talents with others. Even with the fair only about a month and a half away, there is still time to prepare your entries. There are many handicrafts that can be done within hours, photos can be taken at any time, baking can be done just before the fair or baked ahead and frozen until the fair. So don’t be shy and don’t delay - get your entries ready today. We are so excited for you to share your talents with us all. The fair always takes place the weekend after Labour Day. This year it will be held on September 10 and 11 at the Peachland Community Centre.
