Coming aboard

Newly-elected councillor Ken Perry, left, signed his declaration of office as Mayor Roy Avis looked on last night in the committee room at the Civic Centre. Perry, who handily won Monday’s byelection over Todd Hamilton, was sworn in as the first item of business on the committee of the whole agenda.

Carpet Bowlers

Lloyd Wheatly and Marcine James, skips for the respective teams, looked on as their team members prepared to bowl. Twenty-four members took part in this past week’s carpet bowling at the Emo Legion.

Candlelight Ski

Cheryl Behan, foreground, Kerry Zucchiatti, and Kris Krag were among those who turned out for the Rainy Lake Nordic Ski Club’s candlelight ski Saturday night at the Rocky Inlet trails. Afterwards, everyone gathered at the club’s chalet to enjoy some food and music by the Mud Lake City Boys.

Eagles feast on Muskie spikers

The Dryden Eagles proved to be far too much for the Muskie girls' volleyball program as both the seniors and juniors found themselves on the wrong ends of their matches here last Thursday.

The juniors saw their NorWOSSA record fall to 3-2 after taking their match against Dryden to the full five sets.

Collecting trees

Dan DeGagne of the Fort Frances Fire Brigade piled another Christmas tree onto the trailer as Leo Arrigo looked during the bridge’s annual pick-up on Saturday afternoon. Residents who had their trees collected are encouraged to give a donation to the brigade. If they didn’t already, they still can make one at the fire hall. Funds will be given to a yet-to-be-determined local charity.

New councillor

Mayor Roy Avis, right, congratulated Ken Perry after he was elected as councillor in last night’s municipal byelection. Perry garnered 1,813 votes in the municipal byelection, defeating opponent Todd Hamilton, who received 792 votes. Perry will take his oath of office at tonight’s council meeting.

Road closure

Portage Avenue, from Sinclair Street to Church Street, and Sinclair from Victoria Avenue to Portage Avenue, were closed to all public use and parking as of last Thursday due to construction at the biomass boiler site. Only mill deliveries will be permitted to use this portion of the roadway on the south and west sides of the biomass site.

Easy save

David Novak kept his eye on the puck above but rarely saw much of it as he made just four saves on seven shots in the Sabres’ 6-4 loss Friday night.

Tree toss

Making a stop on Fifth Street East, Kayne Shaw of the Fort Frances Fire Brigade tossed a tree into a trailer, as Leo Arrigo and Dan DeGagne looked on, during the bridge’s annual pick-up on Saturday. Residents who had their trees collected are encouraged to give a donation to the brigade. If they didn’t already, they still can make one at the fire hall.
