Letter to the Editor

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.

Empty promises

Dear editor:

In response to a bullet in last week’s article headlined “Town council briefs” pertaining to Ahlan and Judith Johanson’s request of a review of the municipal property standards bylaw.

I have, over many years, tried to have the bylaws enforced by attending and speaking at town council and the committee of adjustment with little or not results.

Inflammatory

Dear editor:

Yes, Jim, “to gain respect you have to respect others!”

I have always found you to be a reasonable and fair individual; one who did his research and homework. I would think these are important qualities in a newspaper publisher.

Union loathing

Dear editor:

I would be remiss if I did not take issue or offer response to the recent slanted, biased, steaming load of rubbish and drivel thinly veiled as “journalism” in last week’s edition of From the Publisher’s Pen (“You Must Respect Others,” June 15).
