National Elks leader visits here

“I plan to spend 250 days on the road in the next year,” said Manning yesterday, who came from Delburne, Alta. to Fort Frances to visit the local lodge.

Water sample comes back clean at Sturgeon Creek annex

Principal Jerry O’Leary is staying positive the water once again will be safe at the Sturgeon Creek annex in Stratton after a sample came back “clean” on Monday.

“They tested again today as we have to get two tests back with positive results. But we should find out in a couple of days,” he said yesterday.

“Hopefully, we can put an end to this story,” he added.
