Mural artists complete first work for upcoming Making Waves fest JOANNE LAYH Peer down 2nd St and you’ll notice an impressive transformation that has taken shape across the exterior of the Legion hall, thanks to mural artists Lacey Jane Wilburn and Layla Folkmann, collectively known as LALA. The Vancouver-based duo were in Peachland last week to complete the mural for the upcoming inaugural Making Waves Mural Festival, which will take place Sep. 2 - 4 at various locations in Peachland. Wilburn and Folkmann have been working as an artistic duo since 2010 after they met while studying Fine Art at Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton. Together they have produced over 100 murals all

across Canada with organizations such as MURAL Montreal, MU, Start Up Toronto, Mural Routes, as well as multiple other arts councils, arts organizations, and festivals. Internationally, they have been commissioned to paint in Iceland, Honduras, France, and Northern Uganda and have also collaborated with a number of brands including Microsoft, Absolut Vodka, Simons, and Yves St. Laurent. “This one was unique. Peachland contacted us for their first ever mural festival and they specifically wanted us to do the Legion because it is the heart of the community and a great gathering place,” said Wilburn. “We designed the mural to respond to the Legion so we wanted to

Boater inspection station

do an Okanagan landscape but with a poppy theme so it was thematically relevant but also uplifting and positive and local to the community.” The two arrived in Peachland at the beginning of last week and spent a couple days prepping and just four days painting. “We’ve learned we have to be incredibly fast. We have so much limited

summer time with our profession so we have learned to hone our skills so that we paint really fast and go boom, boom, boom, boom from project to project,” said Wilburn, noting that the following day they would move on to Kelowna for their next mural. “We have back to back projects and sometimes there are things like weather that you can’t anticipate

so you have to accommodate for that and the heat’s crazy here as well so we had to do two shifts in the morning and the evening,” added Folkmann. “The paint dries so quickly in the sun and we do a lot of blending soft tonal transitions and it’s not easy in the heat. It dries before you can put the paint on the wall.” While they were in town the duo say they received

nothing but positive feedback from residents. “People have been very supportive and kind and generous. People have been feeding us and it’s been really nice.” LALA’s other works can be viewed on Instagram: @ laceyandlaylaart.

Earlier this month, staff with the Okanagan and Similkameen Invasive Species Society (OASISS) met with one of B.C.’s Invasive Mussel Defence Teams at an inspection station located on Highway 97C just outside of Peachland. The two teams shared information on their respective jobs, and OASISS staff were able to see firsthand what happens when travellers arrive at a station with watercraft. OASISS has been working to raise awareness about invasive mussels and other aquatic species for the last decade in the Okanagan Valley. Our work is supported by the Okanagan Basin Water Board. The staff interact with boaters at launches and set up information booths at farmers’ markets and community events. Youth are also targeted through presentations and games at summer camps. Since 2015, the B.C. Government has been working to prevent the introduction of zebra and quagga mussels into the province. Prevention efforts focus on inspecting boats, monitoring lakes, educating the public and coordinating actions with neighbouring jurisdictions. If you are transporting a watercraft in B.C., it is mandatory to stop and report to all invasive mussel watercraft inspection stations along your travel route. Failing to stop at an inspection station can result in a fine of $345.

Long-time ops clerk bids farewell to Peachland Dear Peachland residents and friends: I AM RETIRING! I feel so very lucky to have been able to stay as the District of Peachland’s operations clerk for almost three decades, Aug 15, 1994 – Aug 26, 2022. During my time there have been so many changes in full time and seasonal staff, administration and council that its hard to count all the people that I have worked with over the 28 years, including eight different mayors and council, seven or eight CAOs, seven or eight directors of operations and many, many (75+) co-workers who left or retired. In my years here, I feel like I’ve gone through a technological revolution. When I started, no one had cell phones. We used twoway radios. I mostly knew where everyone was and what they were doing. I felt connected and in the loop. Cell phones changed all of that. My voice was the alarm voice for the water department for a few years and the water crew would make fun of “me” waking

them up in the wee hours. For a year or two, my office was in what is now the planning office downtown, so that contractors and workers would have easy access to operations while the downtown revitalization was ongoing. I was working on a data spreadsheet at that time, a huge project that had me dreaming numbers all night. It was a local engineer, looking over my shoulder one day that offered an insight into the program I was teaching myself to use. His comment made a huge difference in my use of the program. People know things and when someone offers their expertise, listen and learn. As much as I would have loved to attend college or university, I did not attend either. I learned ‘on the job’ and helped finance, admin and planning with a variety of work. My tasks included the mundane, the monotonous and the creative that stretched my patience, knowledge and abilities. I worked on the Peachland website upon the request from the CAO back in the

late 1990s. I learned about html code from library books and from my children who knew much more than I did. I knew nothing and that learning curve went straight up for years. My advice to the young people starting out in the working world is accept opportunities outside your comfort zone. Definitely not all opportunities are easy or fun but they can later make for great stories and new skills. Having a sense of humour is a must and helps one get through the not-sonice jobs. When I got a rescue dog from the SPCA, I was very lucky to be able to bring her to work. My co-worker Mirjam and I, at noon hours, scrounged thrown away materials from the garbage and metal bins, cobbled together fencing and built a gate to create a yard for both our dogs. My dog Shadow (2005 – 2020) and I would go out at noon on “my” trails in summer and winter; walking, running, and snowshoeing. As we both got older and slower, our joy in being out on a

trail never diminished. I have also commuted by bicycle every year for all of these 28 years, not every day of the week, but for sure at least one or two times a week from April – Sep. I always tried for three times a week but I found myself a wimp for weather (cold, wind, rain, extreme heat, smoke) and it can be hard to be motivated in spring and fall to get on the bike in the dark at 5:30 a.m. for the one hour and 20 minute commute. Princeton Ave is a killer hill but oh the joy in the after work downhill blast! I think my co-workers cringed at my speed, and on those days when I would tow Shadow in the trailer, I am sure her legs would be spread-eagled and toenails grasping for purchase as we careened around the corners with her ears flapping and her tongue hanging out. She never refused to get in the trailer and she warbled with excitement as we began. Over the years as I aged I never lost my drive to get up Princeton hill faster Continued on Page 5

Council unanimously approve form and character DP for Crystal dev’t JOANNE LAYH At their last regular meeting Peachland council unanimously supported the issuance of a form and character development permit that approves the design quality and character, including landscaping, siting, form, exterior design and finish of buildings and other structures, and any specific features of the Todd’s RV site project proposed by Porchlight Developments. The proposal to build six six-storey buildings and four luxury beachside bungalows at 3946, 3966 and 3976 Beach Ave, currently the site of Todd’s RV, received the final go ahead from Peachland council back in June. Since then, council has been presented with a package of renderings that identify the form and character details of the project. In her presentation to council planner Lor Pellegrino described it as “what will be a very iconic and very unique and interesting development.” She noted the exterior will have climate appropriate finishes, and “the light colours proposed

will reduce the heat island effect.” “I think it’s been very well thought through and I’m very impressed by the form and character, so I have no difficulty supporting this motion,” said Coun. Keith Fielding.

“I think this developer has done everything we asked from them, and they listened to us. I’m very happy to see the 15 parking spots in front because we need those for that area,” said Coun. Patrick Van Minsel. “I think this development will be

than the last time (seconds count), or the sheer joy of going fast downhill. I am impressed with anyone, young or old, that takes on the challenge of cycling up Princeton Ave. I love cycling to work and that last hill was always a challenge no matter which bike I used; a 1984 vintage Cannondale, a 2016 Cannondale or a creaky old mountain bike. My best time up is 23 minutes and

30 seconds, which is not too shabby for a senior. Now that I am retired, I am never cycling up that hill ever again. Ha. I can hear some of you saying never say never and whispering, “e-bike, e-bike!” This is a very active and involved community and I am happy to have spent a great part of my life working for you and the District of Peachland. You’ve been awesome. Am going to find other trails now…. Linda Nicholas, Operations Clerk

an example for many other developers coming to this town.” Coun. Mike Kent said a

resort type development like this is exactly what Peachland deserves and wanted to know what the timeline for

building would be. An architect representing Porchlight said their goal is to work on presales in conjunction with detailed design drawings and hopefully have shovels in the ground next spring followed by a twoyear construction period on the first of two phases. The project is being marketed by Chamberlain Property Group as Crystal Lake Okanagan Residences. To facilitate the upgrade of the campground to a 46-unit tourist/residential project, earlier this year the OCP was amended and the site was rezoned to CD11 Todd’s Resort Comprehensive Development Zone from C6 Campground and R1 Single Detached Residential, which allows for tourist accommodation and vacation resort residential accommodations. This spring the Ministry of Transportation and infrastructure also granted their approval, which was a requirement due to the property’s proximity to Hwy 97.

ZipZone gets 30 more years World of Wheels give back!

JOANNE LAYH ZipZone Adventures announced on Tuesday that the BC Ministry of Forests has granted them a 30-year Licence of Occupation for the Crown land on which they operate. ZipZone president Kevin Bennett says granting of the licence recognizes their stewardship of the land and watershed for the past 12 years, and their positive relationships with other stakeholders in the area, including the District of Peachland and the Westbank First Nation. Bennett estimates that over a 30-year period the adventure park will inject as much as $24 million into the local economy and generate $250,000 in tenure fees for the province. “Having a 30-year lease allows us access to more flexible and long-term lending facilities, for expanding the activities we have at ZipZone,” said Bennett. Continued on Page 9

The success of this year’s car show means the World of Wheels Car Society was able to give back $8,000 to the community this year. Peachland World of Wheels’ Pam Cunningham, Tory Fischer, Alex Charles, Randy Bloy and Kirsten Charles (shown left to right) presented a cheque for $4,000 to the Peachland Food Bank last weekend, accepted by Judy Bedford (shown in blue). Other recipients of $1,000 each included the Peachland HUB Society, BEEPS, the Peachland Wellness Centre and a Ukrainian family. The World of Wheels car show was held during the May long weekend and attracted approximately 10,000 people.

Bennett told the View he’s always looking for something new to add at the park and he has “a couple of ideas.” The 30-year tenure is for 17 acres, a reduction from the parcel they originally occupied. “Our original tenure was for 48 acres, because at the time, 12 years ago, we weren’t sure what the layout of the park was going to be, so we asked for a larger envelope. Now that we’re established, we only need tenure on the land we actually occupy,” said Bennett. ZipZone is Canada’s highest freestyle zipline, spanning Peachland Creek, about 8km along Princeton Ave. The adventure park was initially granted a tenure in 2010 and began operations in 2011.

FOR SENIORS What to do with your portfolio after 50 A fiftieth birthday is often characterized as a milestone moment. Despite that reputation, upon crossing the half-century threshold, individuals typically don’t feel that much different than they did when they were still a fun-loving 49-year-old. Though there might not be much to distinguish a 49-year-old from a 50-yearold, a fiftieth birthday is a good time to reassess certain parts of life, including finances. Conventional financial wisdom has long suggested reducing risk as retirement age draws closer. But a 2021 survey from American Advisors Group found that 18 per cent of respondents indicated their intention to work past the age of 70, while another 12 per cent indicated they have no plans to ever stop working full-time. Conventional financial wisdom rooted in retiring around the age of 65 may not apply to individuals who intend to work well past that age. That means recently minted fiftysomethings could benefit from adopting a new perspective on managing their money after they reach 50. • Work with a fiduciary. Fiduciaries differ from other financial advisors in a significant way. According to Investopedia, fiduciaries are legally bound to put their client’s best interests ahead of their own. Working with a fiduciary can provide peace of mind for individuals who want to know the person they’re trusting to guide their financial decisions is working on their behalf. That peace of mind can be especially valuable for individuals over 50 who don’t have as much time to make up for financial losses as younger people. Investopedia notes that some brokerage firms do not want or allow their brokers to be fiduciaries, so investors should make sure they’re aware of the legal responsibilities of anyone they trust to manage their money. • Monitor the progress of your retirement accounts. Tracking the performance of retirement accounts takes on more significance after 50, even for individuals who don’t see themselves retiring anytime soon. Monitor how particular investments are performing and reallocate funds if certain ones have not performed well in some time. Most investments will go up and down, but people over 50 can monitor performance more closely than they used to so they get an idea of which ones are working for them and which could be compromising their ability to enjoy financial flexibility in the decades to come. • Resist the temptation to avoid stocks entirely.

recent study published in the medical journal The Lancet found that life expectancy, which has increased dramatically across the globe since 1900, is expected to continue increasing in developed countries in the decades to come. That means people won’t only be working longer, but living longer as well. Investors 50 and over can prepare for that longer life expectancy by utilizing the growth potential of stocks SPRING INTO RETIREMENT LIVING

even after they hit the half century mark. Limiting exposure to risk after 50 is still important, but avoiding investment risks entirely could lead to a financial shortfall down the road. Managing a portfolio after 50 requires careful consideration of various factors. Deft management of an investment portfolio after 50 can ensure investors don’t outlive their money.
