Back picketing

OSSTF District 5B members Duane Roen, left, Mike Allison, and Vince Gouin took to the picket line once again near the Rainy River District School Board office this morning. With today’s one-day strike—and another planned for Monday—impacting final exams, a condensed exam schedule has been prepared.

Shooting pucks

Howard Hartlin launched a puck on goal as part of the Fort Frances Girls’/Women’s Hockey Association’s interactive booth during “Play Zone 2016” at the Fort High gym last night. Almost two dozen clubs and sports, along with volunteers and members, were on hand to offer information to interested children and their parents.

Strike irking FFHS students

As the school year nears a close, Fort Frances High School students are growing weary of the negotiation impasse between the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation District 5B and Rainy River District School Board.

Teachers have opted for a full withdrawal of services one day a week since April 27—and students feel this is hindering their education.

Prom smiles

After taking part in “grand marches” at Rainycrest and the Townshend Theatre, the soon-to-be graduates gathered for supper in the high school gym.

Show ’n shine

A total of 72 vehicles and motorcycles participated this year while hundreds of people walked along the street to check them out.
