Rise and shine, Osoyoos — It’s Friday, April 22

ODN_rise_and_shine_page_headerGood morning, Osoyoos, it’s Friday, April 22. Here’s what you need to know as your day gets started.

  • Osoyoos weather: Risk of thunderstorms this morning and into the mid-afternoon. A high of 22 expected. Partly cloudy Friday evening.
  • A throng of about 300 gathered last night at the Sonora Centre to begin building an independent secondary school for the community to replace the one being taken away by SD53. The vibe was quite positive.
  • Looking for something to do this weekend? Why not explore Canada’s only desert?
  • The B.C. government is demanding print publications across the province pay delinquent recycling fees.
  • Here is the Mike Duffy verdict in a nutshell: the senator was found not guilty; the former PM’s office, eh, not so much.
  • Remember that iPhone the FBI desperately wanted to crack? Apparently they paid more than $1 million to get the job done.
  • If you own a Raspberry Beret or a Little Red Corvette, today would be a fitting occasion to show them off. RIP, Prince.
  • There’s good news and bad news for Ashley Madison users whose private data was compromised by hackers last year. They can sue the company, but they’ll have to out themselves to do it.
  • And finally, justice for victims of online trolling: a man is awarded $65,000 after her neighbour called him a pedophile on her Facebook page.
  • Have a great weekend, Osoyoos — but think about putting some pants on. It’s going to be cool out there.
