Letter to the Editor

Great addition

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.

Hello?

Dear editor:

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.

A question to those in charge of approving the model of increasing cost for energy: why is there no model for reducing energy costs?

Improving access

Dear editor:

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.

Sincere thanks

Dear editor:

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.

Not so sure

Dear editor:

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.

Include fort

Dear editor:

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.

Choosing status quo

Dear editor:

On June 16, the University of Toronto awarded world-renowned ELA scientist Dr. David Schindler with an honourary doctorate degree.

In accepting this honour, Dr. Schindler lamented that since his time at the Experimental Lakes Area, east of Kenora, Canada had abandoned its leadership role in protecting the environment.

Open for discussion

Dear editor:

Thanks to the Fort Frances Times for allowing us to air concerns about parking at Rainycrest.

Even though handicapped ramps for parking lots are in use everywhere, it seems that Riverside Health Care management cannot afford a ramp at the Rainycrest parking lot.
