April Fool's Day

Readers will have noticed a number of humourous stories, photos and ads in yesterday's Daily Bulletin—all done in the name of fun for April Fool's Day.

The Times' staff likes to cut loose once in a while and hopes you enjoyed them.

New fish species identified

Anglers who cast their lines into Rainy Lake this season might be surprised by what they catch—that is, if they can outsmart a fish.

A unique species of three-headed walleye never before identified in Rainy Lake or any other body of fresh water was recently discovered by the Rainy Lake Wildlife and Aquatic Conservation Association (RLWACA).

Free tax help offered

While figuring out their income tax may not be difficult for some, it can be stressful to others—especially if they can't afford to hire a service to do it for them.

As such, the Fort Frances Volunteer Bureau once again is offering a helping hand through the Canada Revenue Agency's Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVIP).

Council's pay noted

A new report received by town council at its regular meeting Monday night shows how much the former mayor and councillors were paid in 2018, as well as their conference expenses.

Mayor Roy Avis, who also sat on the Fort Frances Power Corp. board of directors and local Police Services Board (PSB), had remuneration totalling $30,549.83 last year.

'Relay For Life' returning in June

With the 18th-annual “Relay for Life” in Fort Frances now less three months away, preparations are well underway.

The event will take place on Saturday, June 22 from 2-11 p.m. at Point Park.

Organizing committee chair Anneda Chabot noted “Relay” has evolved over the years, going from a 12-hour event to a more condensed version that now takes place.
