More Emo water woes

The Township of Emo once again is asking its residents to refrain from non-essential water use.

The Emo Spray Park and truck filling station also have been closed to conserve water.

“We had our raw water pump fail a few weeks ago and we’re waiting for our new ones to come in,” noted Jason Smith, the operator in charge of Emo’s water treatment plant.

Town reps at AMO

Fort Frances has representatives among the more than 1,600 delegates from hundreds of municipalities and other organizations across Ontario attending the Association of Municipalities of Ontario’s annual conference in Niagara Falls.

Mayor Roy Avis, Couns. Ken Perry and Paul Ryan, and Fort Frances CAO Mark McCaig are at the conference, which runs through Wednesday.

Local fastballers drop openers

It was not the Rainy River District’s day to shine on the mounds of Moline.

Both squads from this area lost their first games at the 2015 North American Fastpitch Association ‘A’ World Series in Moline, Ill., yesterday to drop into the losers bracket.

The Sight & Sound Wolves were blanked 7-0 in five innings by Meister Dairy FP (Wisconsin) in the kickoff to the tournament.

Muskies needed for fair float

Jim Scheibler is trying to promote Muskie sports of all kinds.

One way he will be doing that is setting up a booth in the arena at this year’s Rainy River Valley Agricultural Fair, running in Emo today through Saturday.

He also has made a float for the parade on Saturday and hopes current Muskie athletes—and even alumni—will come and join in.

Great eight for Wilson

It’s the story that won’t stop because Tylar Wilson apparently can’t be stopped.

The Fort Frances driver is now a perfect eight-for-eight for the season after capturing the feature the past two weeks in the Street Stocks division of the Borderland Racing Association.
