Coat giveaway on again

The Associates of Ste. Marguerite d'Youville once again are looking to help make sure no one goes cold this winter.

The group will hold its annual coat drive later this month.

The public is encouraged to drop off clean, used winter coats in good condition—for men, women, and children—at the Fort Frances Volunteer Bureau (the old CN station) on Oct. 22-23 from 1-4 p.m.


My name is Harold McQuaker and I am running for the position of mayor of the Town of Emo in the upcoming election.

I was born and raised in Rainy River District and have made Emo my home for 45 years. My wife, Shirley, and I raised our two boys here and their children are growing up in Emo, as well.

Duo top LaBelle's tourney

Jason Cain and Dan Tucker had a three-fish total of 14.22 pounds to snare the annual Rainy Lake Fall Bass Classic title held Saturday at La Belle's Birch Point Camp on Northwest Bay.

The duo also weighed in the biggest fish of the one-day tournament—a 5.31-pound lunker.
