Dennis Mutz returned home Sept. 17 from hospital in southern Ontario after being burned in an electrical accident at the AbitibiBowater mill in Fort Frances. Dennis is doing well and looking forward to returning to Confederation College next week, where he is working towards a career as an electrician.

He still is healing, though, and his arm will take the longest to recover.

Our community wishes Dennis continued recovery and glad you’re back.

The annual “Bassin’ for Bucks” tournament was held in Sioux Narrows on Sept. 5-7. Four teams from the Devlin/La Vallee area were among the 120 vying for top honours.

Finishing in 16th place was Bill Godin and Ted Olson, followed by Paul Jewiss and Mike Graham (29th), Ralph Galusha and Bill Galusha (43rd), and Wayne and Brad Beacham (84th).

Anglers tell me it was an excellent tournament, well-organized and lots of fun, even though the weather made for some bone-chilling fishing.

Congratulations to our local anglers.

Robin’s 2¢:

Two cows, Daisy and Dolly, were standing next to each other in a field.

“I was artificially inseminated this morning,” Daisy said.

“I don’t believe you,” replied Dolly.

“It’s true,” insisted Daisy. “No bull.”
