Search for man ends in tragedy

FORT FRANCES - An emotional search has ended in tragedy. The remains of Chauncey Lyle Grover, who has been missing since mid-January, have been found.

On January 22, members of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Rainy River Detachment received a request from the Treaty Three Police Service to assist with an investigation into Grover's disappearance.

Weekend warriors

It was a long, chilly wait for shoppers this weekend. Long lines were spotted Saturday morning at Safeway and Walmart in Fort Frances and Cloverleaf in Emo. This line had formed just 15 minutes into Safeway's day. Several stores are attempting to encourage social distancing by limiting the number of people in the store. The move also ensures staff can sanitize carts before each use.
