Outage planned

More than 1,060 district Hydro One customers will be affected by a scheduled power outage this Sunday (June 10), in addition to all Fort Frances Power Corp. customers in the Town of Fort Frances.

Charges laid in fatality

Charges have been laid in connection to a fatal crash that occurred two years ago in Chapple Township.

A 28-year-old Fort Frances woman was charged with causing death by criminal negligence, dangerous operation of a vehicle causing death, and impaired operation of a vehicle causing death.

Outage in district

Some Hydro One customers in the west end of Rainy River District suffered an unexpected power outage yesterday afternoon.

Hydro One reported crews had to cut power in order to make repairs to a wire burning on a crossarm.

A total of 718 customers in Lake of the Woods, Pratt, Big Island FN, Morson, Sutherland, and Big Grassy River FN were without power from about 1:45-3 p.m.

Muskies champs again

Death, taxes, and the Muskie boys' soccer team winning the championship.

Those seemingly are the only certainties in life.

The Muskies netted a pair of goals in the second half as they nabbed their eighth-straight league title with a 2-0 shutout of the visiting Kenora Broncos in the NorWOSSA final yesterday afternoon.

Junior athletes claim crown

The Muskie track-and-field team claimed its first-ever junior title at the NWOSSAA championships that ran Tuesday and Wednesday in Thunder Bay.

Eleven different Muskies also qualified for the all-Ontarios set for June 7-9 in Toronto, the most Fort High has ever sent.

Tori Toriseva won the junior girls' 300m race while Alacea Yerxa nabbed bronze in the 1,500m.

Muskie boys nab bye

The Muskie boys' soccer team (5-0-1) swept away the competition in Kenora yesterday to finish in first place and earn a bye to the NorWOSSA final here this coming Wednesday.

James Gushulak and Cam Lidkea both scored twice to pace the Muskies to an 8-0 rout of the Dryden Eagles in their first game yesterday.

Beavers keep on winning

The Northwest Bay Beavers ran their record to 3-0 with a 17-13 win over the Fort Frances Herricanes in Rainy River District Women's Fastball League action last night.

Darcy Smith picked up the win while Jess Woodgate was tagged with the loss.

In other games, the Manitou T-Birdies topped Sabaskong Tebinaak 15-12.
