Letter to the Editor

Dreams crushed

Dear editor:

There has been a group working hard for the last while trying to get an assisted living project off the ground.

Unfortunately, their dreams were crushed with the town’s decision to see the lots they needed to a contractor from Thunder Bay.

Bring back fort

Dear editor:

In a 2003 Fort Frances Times’ article about the demolition of Fort St. Pierre, former museum curator Pam Hawley was quoted as saying, “We’ve thought about constructing a replica of the fort in the future, so it’s something we might see returning.”

I believe the proposed market square project is now our opportunity to bring the fort back to Fort Frances.

Great support

Dear editor:

I would like to express how impressed I am with the support the community has given the Rainy River District Festival of the Performing Arts.

Our talent show and bake sale fundraiser last week was very well-attended and the response the performers received from the audience was enthusiastic.

Girls can play

Dear editor:

“A boy told me I skated like a girl; I told him if he skated a little faster, he could, too!”

In December, the NHL hosted its first-ever outdoor women’s hockey classic and later the first National Women’s Hockey League all-star game took place in its inaugural season.

Missing home

Hey Mike:

Over the past few weeks, the town of Fort Frances has been on TV five or six times a day with that new Tim Hortons commercial.

And for those of us who now live in other parts of Canada, it sure makes us miss the little town of our origin.

Each and every location on that little clip is familiar to us and, yes, we are proud to have called that town our home.

Amazing blessing

Dear editor:

I am so proud of the Fort Frances Choraliers!

What absolutely fantastic performances they gave at Rainycrest, the New Beginnings Fellowship Church in Fort Frances, and at the Zion Lutheran Church in International Falls.

The balance of sound and the professionalism was second to none!

Go Lakers

Dear Mike:

Many Junior ‘A’ teams in Canada are privately-owned and financed.

The Fort Frances Lakers, for one, are a community-owned and operated team that depends on the community to operate.

Renew tradition

Dear editor:

Sports rivalry . . . does it exist locally? Apparently not in the eyes or thoughts of our local high school principal, Peggy Keffer.

She claims her administration, including the Muskie boys’ hockey coach and athletic director, do not want to play the International Falls Broncos due to the fact that someone may get hurt.
