Letter to the Editor

Station memories sought

Dear sir:

In many of our small towns, and even in our larger ones, the railway station was long the hub of activity. We went there to listen to news wire, to meet other townspeople, or to hang around waiting for the next train.

We greeted long-lost relatives, and said goodbye to those who were leaving. The station was our gateway to the outside; our economic lifeline.

Anthem thoughts

Sir:

In reference to “Moving with Mike" (Jan. 21), I think Mike should take a look at any dictionary and see that an "anthem” is certainly not classed as anything other than a song of praise or devotion.

Focus on healing

< B>Dear sir:

With the end of the century, changes are impacting everything in our country, no matter which political party is in power, and there will always be a group or groups griping about what was in the past.

The forces driving change are bigger than political ideology, they reach everywhere and effect everything. They also signal opportunity.

Mystified

< B>Dear sir:

This is a letter to acknowledge and thank the many people I had the pleasure of working with in the 12 years I was a member of the Emo Library board.

Something in the water?

< B>Dear sir:

I noted in last Friday’s Bulletin that John Harrison has been made manager of Abitibi-Consolidated’s mill in Thunder Bay.

There are roughly 50 paper mills in Canada and currently five of these mills, or 10 percent of the total, are managed by people who are from Fort Frances, all of whom achieved this lofty level of success relatively young.

Dismaying response

To the editor:

On Dec. 27, a social took place at the Memorial Arena. In spite of weeks of signage around the area and advertisements on Channel 9, in the Fort Frances Times, and on CFOB, the event was far from a success.

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.
