Midway ride

Midway rides are sure to be a popular attraction again as the Rainy River Valley Agricultural Society's annual fall fair in Emo got underway today, with the feature event being the crowning of this year's Emo Fair queen tonight upstairs at the Emo-La Vallee Arena. The fair, which runs through Saturday, offers a variety of activities for all ages and interests.

Moynagh Thrun

There has been no team that has matched the amazing success of Minnesota's Jim Moynagh, left, and Joe Thrun at the Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship. The dynamic duo has carted home five FFCBC titles—more than anybody else in tournament history—and will be a good bet to grab a sixth crown at this year's event.
