Columnist compendium: Some thoughts our columnists shared this week

Capital News columnists share their opinions and the latest from their professions. Here's a round-up of what they had to offer last week.

In the Kelowna Capital News the week of Nov. 21 to 25:

• Gwen Steele looks forward to this time of year when she can sit back, read about gardening and plan what she’ll do next spring in her xeriscaped spaces.

Don Burnett says the change in weather pattern has gardeners guessing how ‘out of the zone’ the Okanagan will become.

Paul Hergott writes about the wrong-headedness in our driving habits and penalties. Stopping truly preventable car crashes will only happen when we realize it’s being inattentive to the demands of driving that leads to the crash.

• This week’s physiotherapy columnist tells us to beware of ‘texter neck.’ Don’t let all that tweeting give you a pain.

• Our mortgage professionals tell us that divorcing couples don’t necessarily have to sell the house. One can buy it from the other, with some attention to mortgage funding.

Charlie Hodge looks forward to this time of year because he loves everything about it — even the snow.

Joel Young sees sunshine and roses for entrepreneurs where business economists see doom and gloom on the horizon.
