A report in our Jan. 10, 2011, issue that 12-year-old Ann Fisher of Little Fort was the youngest swimmer in the annual Little Fort Polar Bear Dip was incorrect, according to Clearwater resident Kelvin Arndt.

“This year’s swim I had two daughters go into the swim and my eldest daughter Siarah and her boy friend (Lyle), talked my youngest daughter Keltie to go into the swim,” Arndt said.

The local resident noted that Keltie was born on Jan. 1, 2000, and so turned 11 on the day of the swim.
