'1-Stop Registration' event slated

Do you or your child still need to register for a sport, club, or recreational activity?

Well, tomorrow will be the time to do so as KidSport is hosting a “1-Stop Registration” open house from 5-7:30 p.m. in the arena auditorium.

Representatives from more than 20 different sports groups and clubs will be offering information and accepting registrations during the event.

Scanning glasses

A pair of glasses were scanned through the lensometer at Cousineau Eye Centre to quickly determine the prescription in the lenses. The technology is one of the many aspects that helps to make the centre “paperless.” Everything is integrated online into their computer system, eliminating the need for hard copy files.

Welcome back!

Early childhood education worker Nicole Cheetham welcomed Izabella Adams with a big hug as she arrived for her very first day of school this morning at St. Michael's. Students across the district headed back to the classroom today as school started after Labour Day locally for the first time in several years.

Belting tune

IsKwé belted out some big notes in front of a full Rainy Lake Square last Thursday evening. The Canadian born Cree/Dene/Métis pop and electronic music singer saw great success at the 2017 Western Canadian Music Awards, having won Electronic/Dance Artist of the Year for her 2017 album “Fight From Within.”

Tennis club lauding repair job on courts

Local tennis players were without courts in town for more than a decade and had to head over to International Falls to enjoy the game.

That all changed last summer when four tennis courts were built behind Fort Frances High School.

But after the $475,000 courts were built, players quickly noticed they were uneven and would collect water like a “bird bath” whenever it rained.

Big return

Anthony Andrusco returned the ball with all his might during the doubles tennis tournament held here Saturday. He landed in second place overall with the help of his partner, Humberto Pacheko.

Busting through

A Lakers' training camp participant for the “Black" team tried to barrel over his opponents on the "White” team as they all rushed to the play at the Ice For Kids Arena on Saturday night. Those who attended the camps played as hard as they could in hopes of making the Lakers' roster for the 2018-19 season.
