Letter to the Editor
On behalf of the La Verendrye Hospital Auxiliary, I would like to thank everyone who came out to enjoy an afternoon of good food and fellowship at our annual fall tea.
Also a big thank-you to the membership who so willingly gave of their time and talents to make the tea possible.
This past Saturday I had the chance to play in my first-ever 3-on-3 basketball tournament and I had such a blast, I felt I needed to send out a big “thank you” to Kevin Gemmell and Rainy River First Nations for hosting this great event.
Dear Mr. Behan:
I am sure that many people driving by Robert Moore School in the last few months have noticed the change that has been happening at the school playground.
First, Daryl Eyolfson’s crew built a running track and a play hill.
Now, in addition to this new landscape, just days before school was to start, new equipment went up.
Some reflections as the wind has died down, the sun has set, and the kerosene lamp casts ghostly shadows over an uncertain future for rural residents.
The roosters have come home to roost despite the head winds.

Usually I’m not much of a complainer but the other day upon leaving the Walmart parking lot, I observed the height of laziness!
Improving access to justice is one way we are making government a force for good in more people’s lives.
As Attorney General of Ontario, it is important to me that the residents of Fort Frances, and the District of Rainy River, are able to access the legal services they need.
This past Sunday, Rainy River witnessed what a grand time can be had with a bit of cardboard, a few rolls of tuck tape, our beautiful river, and some community-minded volunteers.
Once again, folks just stepped forward to make this happen.
Your headline on Page A4 in last week’s paper, “Right direction,” caught my eye.
While reading it, my thoughts went to the story—or rather history—of a town in the Bible.
We read about it in Genesis, chapters 18 and 19. It seems like the Lord himself came down to see what was going on.
Actually, quite interesting to read.
Sherry George is enthusiastic about establishing an (historical) interpretive centre in Fort Frances (“Take Energy Forward,” June 15). But I take issue with several of her statements, especially pertaining to Canadian and Rainy River region history, and I’ll address a few of them.
