Letter to the Editor

Old memories

Dear “Times Friends”:

I’m writing to renew my subscription and to thank you for keeping me in touch with Fort now that I live in Windsor.

Dropping support

Dear sir:

The second-annual ice fishing derby is scheduled to take place in March.

It was advertised as promoting business in the community of Fort Frances but there are businesses that have not been paid for last year’s services.

Egan letter

Dear sir:

As a follow-up to my letter in last week’s Times, here are several points I’d like to make with regards to the meeting of the arena user groups held earlier this month:

oIt was likened to a game of charades. Nothing could be changed to accommodate the users because all decisions had been made previously, unilaterally, by the town.

About face?

Dear sir:

I have been following the actions of town council with regards to the new ice facility since former Coun. George Blanc told “Ice for Kids” representatives and town citizens to raise $500,000 so a two-sheet facility could be built using the Dakota (St. Vital) building as a model.

Warning

Dear editor:

We are writing this letter to warn your readers that, when buying over-the-counter medication, to check the expiry date both on the outer packaging and on the container inside.

Recently, after purchasing and using a common cough medication for a period of time without it being effective, the date on the bottle was checked. It had an expiry date of 1993.

Last farewell to Mother

To the editor:

You may remember me as Bob Cottam, the guy with the plaid tam that has become my trademark apparently. From time to time, I have written about numerous subjects, and I hope you, the readers, have found them interesting.

Arena must benefit all

Dear editor:

I’d like to take this opportunity to write in reaction to the article which appeared in Thursday’s edition of the Daily Bulletin concerning whether or not the town should bring in a new “no-alcohol” policy for the planned ice rink auditorium.

Starting a trend

Dear Mr. Editor:

Your paper last week carried the obituary for Don McNabb, and I noticed it mentioned the fact that for some time he trucked milk to Kenora.

I would like to elaborate a little on this part of his life. This was in his younger days, in fact more than 40 years ago. Before that, no milk went from this district to Kenora.

Flemming letter

To the editor:

This letter is being read by the people of the Rainy River District after the municipal elections and our students are back in school...so back to TVOntario!
