‘Freedom Ride’ raises big bucks

The sun was shining, the horses were happy to get out of the stable and run, and the riders were pumped.

All in all, it was a perfect day Saturday for the Northern Ontario Therapeutic Riding Association’s fourth-annual “Freedom Ride” starting at Trail’s End Riding Stable in Devlin.

The 16 riders who took part raised almost $6,000 for NORTRA—about $1,200 more than last year.

Float plane back in business

After more than $1 million in renovations, the float plane that flipped over on Lakeland Bay just over a year ago took to the air again last Thursday.

The de Havilland single-Otter C-GUTL is used mainly to fly people and supplies to remote lodges. And the plane completed two trips to outposts operated by Northern Wilderness Outfitters on its first day back in service.
