Carl Schubring, a former editor of the Fort Frances Times, jokingly told me the following story.
When the community had a sole lawyer, the poor lawyer could barely put food on the table for his family. When a second lawyer appeared on the scene, together they comfortably could feed their families.
When a third came into the community, all made a very good living.
I remembered this story in reading about the fact our community does not have a full-time sitting judge. Back then, there was a magistrate and district judge in Fort Frances.
