Under repair

Nick Delorenzi, foreground, and Spencer Smith were among those working on the rehabilitation of the Caul Bridge on McIrvine Road this week. The bridge has been reduced to one lane of traffic as crews work to upgrade it to provincial safety standards, including the installation of steel guardrails. The project is scheduled to be completed by Aug. 20.

Powerful drive

John Angus unleashed a powerful drive on the 17th hole Saturday during the Fort Frances Lakers’ fundraising golf tournament at Heron Landing. Sixteen teams came out to support the local Junior ‘A’ team in a best ball scramble format, with the day starting off with a pancake breakfast at the Couchiching Recreation Centre.

Ravyn Bedard rocked the walls at the new Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre on Friday evening as she held a guitar workshop entitled “The Art of Shredding.” Just under a dozen teens showed up for the event, which was geared more towards heavy metal music lovers.

It has been a life-changing six months for Chicago Blackhawks’ defenceman Duncan Keith—one that not even the greatest hockey players of all time have ever matched.

Keith, who got his start in minor hockey here in Fort Frances, became the first player to win Olympic gold, the Stanley Cup, and, most recently, the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s top defenceman all in one season.
