MICHAEL GRAHAM

I am prepared to make the four-year trustee commitment to you, the voters of Fort Frances, as a team player representing the communities of Rainy River District on our board of trustees.

JUNE CAUL

My name is June Caul and I am hoping to be elected as your new mayor in the upcoming municipal election.

I am a lifetime resident of Fort Frances and I am proud to say that my son and daughter have remained here to work and raise my grandchildren. I am a retired teacher and was employed by the Rainy River District School Board for more than 30 years.

Cantata rehearsals set to start

With cooler weather upon us here in Borderland, Diane Maxey already is thinking about the holiday season—and that means the Christmas cantata.

Those interested in singing in this year's cantata are encouraged to come out to a listening session set for this coming Monday (Oct. 15) at 7 p.m. at the New Beginnings Fellowship.

'Run for the Donut' set

The second-annual “Run for the Donut” is planned and ready to go.

Runners are advised to lace up their shoes and start preparing for the 5K race hosted by the Rainy Running Club, the Municipality of Emo, and the “Run for the Donut” committee.

You are invited to run or walk the scenic five-km course at Emo's Lions Park and then enjoy doughnuts and prizes at the finish line!

DAVID KIRCHER

My name is David Kircher and I am running for re-election to the Rainy River District School Board.

I bring several strengths to the table. I am inquisitive by nature and therefore ask questions and seek answers from multiple sources in order to reach a consensus for a solution to a problem.

Signs for bike path requested

A local resident is asking the town to put up some signs to clearly point out where cyclists should ride—and pedestrians shouldn't walk—along the La Verendrye Parkway.

“Can we have a few signs up regarding the bike path?” Cynthia Donald wrote in an e-mail to council, which it received at last night's regular meeting.

RUDOLF ZEITLHOFER

My name is Rudy Zeitlhofer and I am hoping to be elected as a Fort Frances trustee for the Rainy River District School Board.

My experience teaching in this board for 24 years is a huge asset. I have seen how the actions of this board have affected kids from inside the system.

Town applies for study funding

The town is applying for funding to do a study for the two properties it recently acquired from Resolute.

The Rainy River Future Development Corp. has prepared and submitted two funding applications to complete a land use and economic development feasibility study for the Shevlin wood yard and at 420 Mowat Ave. (the old nursing station building).
