A member of the Kenor District's Northwest EMS hockey team put a backhander past the Rainy River District Paramedic Services' goalie during the second period of a 7-5 win in a charity game last Thursday afternoon at the '52 Canadians Arena.

Skiing along

Fresh snow made the trails a bit sticky but Muskie Joe Dueck still was going strong as he reached the finish line of the senior boys' race. He wound up fifth in his division, with teammates Aidan DeGagne and Conal Jarvis coming in seventh and eighth, respectively, during the first Nordic ski race of the high school season.

Female skier

Caryss Kehl of Atikokan slid into the finish line for a third-place showing in the Grade 7/8 girls' division of the Nordic ski meet hosted by the Muskie team on Monday at the Rocky Inlet trails. Almost 60 racers in six divisions competed that day in sticky, falling snow and relatively mild temperatures.

Ski meet

Charlotte Arnold, a senior girls' skier from Atikokan, worked hard to finish her race yesterday. The Muskie Nordic ski team hosted its first meet of the season at the Rocky Inlet trails and had to deal with huge flakes of snow falling during the latter half of the race, which made the race course a bit sticky.

'Holiday Melodies'

The Rainy Lake Orchestra performed “Holiday Melodies" before a packed house yesterday evening at the Fort Frances Public Library.

Open for business

Hannah Mueller stood next to some of the clothing items offered at the new Westside Bait & Tackle this morning following its grand opening on Saturday. The store, located on Highway 11/71 just west of town, is run by Mueller and her father, Bill, as the pair hope to offer a convenient shopping location for anglers heading to or coming from anywhere west of Fort Frances.
