Rise and shine, Osoyoos — It’s Friday, August 12. Here’s what you need to know as your day gets started.

Mainly sunny today with a high of 32 this afternoon. We can expect to see a few clouds rolling in late in the day. Sunset tonight at 8:17 p.m.


A rollover about 27 km east of Osoyoos closed Hwy. 3 for more than four hours last night. Four people were taken to hospital — two females airlifted to Kelowna and two males treated in Oliver. The investigation continues.


Just two days after Town of Osoyoos Council passed a rezoning amendment bylaw that prohibits the sale and dispensing of marijuana within the community, Health Canada made it clear it won’t allow dispensaries or compassion clubs to distribute the product either.


Hey, we’ve got Music in the Park tonight. Youngster Beamer Wiggley is up first. Then, as it gets past his bedtime, Rick Wood takes the stage. The fun gets started at Gyro Park at 6:30 p.m.
