Buckled in

Cst. Beth Chevalier used a plush dog to demonstrate how to properly strap a child into a car seat yesterday upstairs at the Rainy River District EMS ambulance garage on Scott Street.

Collecting trees

Former volunteer firefighter Dale Gill collected a tree from the curb in the west end of town during the Fort Frances Fire Brigade's annual Christmas tree pick-up Saturday. Teams spent the afternoon collecting the trees, of which there seems to be fewer and fewer each year. The trees then were taken to the wood chipper at Daryl's Custom Landscapes Ltd.

'Thar she blows!'

The town's trackless sidewalk plow cleared a path along King's Highway last week. A dumping of white stuff was followed by some cold days, but there's good news—it will be warming up here. The short-term forecast is calling for the mercury to rise as high as four C (39 F) on Friday before dipping to the minus-four (25) to minus-12 (10) range for the next two weeks.

Driving the lane

Senior Muskie Cole Kowalski looked to drive his way to the hoop during Fort High's 78-69 loss to the visiting Dryden Eagles in NorWOSSA action Monday afternoon. Kowalski poured in 14 points for the black-and-gold but it wasn't enough as they saw their league record fall to 2-3. The junior squad had much better success, though, routing the Eagles 61-15 to improve to 4-1 in league play.

Stick check

Neebing Hawks' defenceman Keaton Cristofaro tried his best to knock the puck away from Noah McPherson of the Fort Frances Canadians during his team's 3-1 win in Sunday's final of the annual PeeWee 'AA' tournament held here. McPherson scored the Canadians' lone goal as they settled for a silver medal.

Standing tall

Junior Muskie Grace Petsnick looked to tip the ball over the net during Fort High's straight-sets victory (26-24, 25-15, and 25-23) versus the visiting Dryden Eagles in NorWOSSA action Monday afternoon. The squad improved their league record to 4-1 with the win.

Wide-open shot

Payton Boyko of the Dryden Eagles looked to capitalize on this clear-cut chance on Muskie goalie Kamryn Sandelovich during Fort High's 1-0 win in NorWOSSA action last Wednesday at “The Duke” (Couchiching Arena). Sandelovich made the save—and also stopped every other shot she faced to earn the shutout.

Swedish team

Jace Dittaro of the Fort Frances Bantam 'AA' Canadians, right, handed a signed jersey to the captain of the Swedish Tullinge TP hockey club as a keepsake for their recent trip to Canada. The Canadians, who were in Winnipeg competing in a tournament, were provided the chance to play the Swedish team, which had travelled to Winnipeg to play a series of exhibition games with area teams.

Pass options

Muskie forward Cole Magill looked to make a play around the outstretched stick of Dryden Eagles' defender Ben Silander during a second-period power play last Wednesday night at “The Duke” (Couchiching Arena).
