Letter to the Editor

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.

Empty promise?

To the editor:

At the council meeting Monday night, Coun. Dave Bourgeault questioned S/Sgt. Hugh Dennis as to whether anything could be done to help the kids hanging out around the pool hall.

These kids complained of having nothing to do.

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.
