Instilling a love for music

The recorder may not be the sweetest-sounding instrument in the world but Donald Young School music teacher Karen Wilde believes the experience it gives her students is priceless.

Wilde teaches the recorder to children in grades four through eight at DYS although students there start learning the basics of the instrument in grade three.

First baby of 2000 welcomed

Fort Frances—and Rainy River District—welcomed its first baby of the new year, century, and millennium with the safe arrival of Garrett Austin to Darwin and Michelle Woods (nee Mauro) at La Verendrye hospital Jan. 2 .

Ironically, the eight-pound baby boy, born at 3:45 a.m., was more than two weeks overdue.
