Petting lamb

Kids gardening

Taryn and Kade Oster helped their dad, Brad, hoe a plot of dirt at the Kids' Garden Club yesterday evening at the Fort Frances Community Garden in the north end. After preparing the plot, the family divided the section into rows and planted seeds.

Fire safety

Caitlyn Townson checked out a pot that started a house fire after being left by a stove burner while at the Fort Frances Fire and Rescue Service's spring open house Saturday morning at the fire hall. Aimed to promote fire safety and emergency preparedness, the event also featured hand-outs, giveaways for kids, and free T-shirts.

Couchiching moving forward on drug-testing policy for staff

The Couchiching band office has decided to move forward with implementing a drug-testing policy for its staff, including the chief and council—an idea it has tossed around for the last few months.

Chief Brian Perrault and four councillors were tested first earlier this month, followed by the other two councillors 10 days later.

All the tests came back negative.

Game time

The Tweens Club that meets weekly at the Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre chose to stay indoors yesterday due to the inclement weather. But Hailey Joyce, Mikka Slack, Liz Cousineau, Marie-Mai Langevin, Izzy Meeks, and MacKenzie McClain still enjoyed playing games such as “Hedbanz" and "Life” while munching on some snacks.
