Heinz Lange (December 18, 1919 - June 11, 2000) was a well-known Merritt teacher and inventor. Windmills were his passion at least as early as 1967. His "normal" windmills were used to aerate local lakes. By 1974, he had developed a vertical axle helical windmill prototype. A decade later he was issued patents for his unique design that he dubbed the Wind Onion.
The consequences of the start of the First World War for the Nicola Valley people were immediate.
There were no deaths in battle to suffer and mourn in the summer and fall of 1914; those would come, starting in the spring of 1915.
But there were changes in circumstances to embrace and endure, large and small.
