Alexia Gate cruised her way to a silver-medal finish at the annual Hial Pike races held in International Falls last Tuesday. The Muskie runner wound up clocking in with a time of 14:45.40 in the junior varsity girls' division as part of an impressive showing by Fort High's cross-country team.

Generous donation

Just in time for Thanksgiving, Bargain Shop staff member Patrick Gallow, left, and Charlene Smith, second from right, joined Jill Pernsky and Dan Smith from the Salvation Army in rounding up the generous donations which came in during the Bargain Shop's annual food drive. The campaign ran from Sept. 29-Oct. 10.
