FORT FRANCES—Exceeding its campaign goal of $750,000 by more than $54,000 over the past two weeks, the “Building for the Future” committee has been overwhelmed by the community support for a new Fort Frances Public Library and Technology Centre.
Duane Hicks has been a staff writer/photographer for the Fort Frances Times since 1998, becoming editor in 2019. Raised in Fort Frances, he left town in 1993 to attend the Journalism program at Carleton University in Ottawa. He returned in the spring of 1998, being hired at the Times shortly thereafter. He covers a variety of news beats, including municipal politics which he has covered since 2001. He also makes a mean salsa which he shares with the rest of the Times staff on his birthday.
