The activity, held at the “Circle of Life” building on Mowat Avenue, aimed to pass cultural traditions onto youths as part of UNFC’s “Akwe:go Summer Program.”

    Amy Penner of the Fort Frances Her-icanes was judged to be a split-second too late in slapping the tag at second base on Couchiching Lady Raiders’ base runner Jen Singleton (23) in the fourth inning of their Rainy River District Women’s Fastball League game yesterday evening at VanJura. But the Her-icanes rallied from a two-run deficit in their final at-bat to win a wild 17-16 affair.

    The Sixth Street recycling depot continues to be overflowing with items each Monday morning—both with recyclables and non-recyclables, as seen with this mattress here. The town is urging the public to wait until their scheduled “blue box” curbside pick-up day to get rid of their recyclables, or use common sense and only drop off recyclables when there’s room in the bins.
