Robert Moore project on track

The Rainy River District School Board held its monthly meeting Tuesday night at Robert Moore School.

Court teams set to resume

It was a good first month to the NorWOSSA season for the four Muskie court teams in December, but it will be a matter of shaking off the rust for their next league action tomorrow in Dryden, which comes a full three weeks after their last league contests here Dec. 18.

Men’s hoops back on court

The local men’s basketball league returned to the court Monday night looking to cut into that added turkey weight put on during the holiday season.

The Vous got back on the winning track with a narrow 73-70 victory over the Muskies.

Brad Wardas and Aaron Rost led the Vous with 17 points apiece while Jeremy Strain netted 15 for Fort High.
