Letter to the Editor

Well done

Dear sir:

Last week, I had the pleasure of being a small part of the Rainy River District Music and Drama Festival.

I would like publicly to commend the participants, the organizers and volunteers, and the teachers and parents involved.

Honour and dishonour

Dear sir:

Hopefully, you will find space for these lines, written by a relic from the past. If my English seems somewhat stilted, it is because I have now been living in Norway for more than 50 long years.

Apology

Dear sir:

This letter to the editor is an apology that I make to anyone that I may have offended at the Emo fish fry last Friday night.

I did not go ahead of the line of customers intentionally but did not know, and was not informed, that people were called by numbers.

Disgusted

Dear sir:

I am a local trucker from the west end of the district, and after reading the Crime Stoppers report in your March 25 issue, I was totally disgusted.

I don’t think offering a reward to someone to turn in an individual who’s paying taxes (fuel, licences), and trying to make a living and support his family, is necessary.

Grateful

Editor:

I would like to use your letters column to publicly thank everyone who has expressed their love and concern for my son, Lantana Wind Dancer, whose story was told in last week’s Fort Frances Times (“Toddler survives dog attack”).

‘Ugly politics?’

Sir:

Is Howard Hampton confused or incompetent? On March 21, 1998, he stated in the Thunder Bay Chronicle-Journal, on page 4, that “New hospitals are reserved for the wealthy 905 suburbs around Toronto where the Tories get the greatest percentage of their votes.”

Overwhelming support

Dear sir:

Once every five years, the Fort Frances Bowling Club hosts the Sunset Country 5-Pin Bowling Aggregate Tournament, where six teams from each affiliated community compete for the coveted aggregate banner.

Even though the Fort Frances bowlers were defeated this year (let’s just say we were too busy hosting), the weekend was a success.

Many thanks

Dear sir:

This past weekend, March 20-22, Tom Thumb minor hockey held a tournament in Fort Frances. The Times Tigers won the “A runner-up.” We’re proud to come in second out of 14 teams.
