Man wins 'Catch the Ace'

The ace has been “caught.”

Richard Norman of Alberton was the lucky winner in the “Catch the Ace” raffle draw held Friday evening at the Emo Legion.

His ticket was drawn and he had selected envelope #17—which contained the ace of spades.

As such, Norman won the weekly prize of $1,340 as well as the grand prize jackpot of $20,321—a total of $21,661.

Pair of drivers nabbed

On Friday at 11:30 p.m., Rainy River District OPP officers stopped a motor vehicle for a Highway Traffic Act infraction.

After speaking with a 17-year-old driver, he subsequently was arrested for an alcohol/drug-related offence.

He was taken to the Fort Frances detachment and released on a promise to appear in court on Jan. 28.

'Country Jam' set to resume Friday

The next “Country Jam” at the Emo Legion will be held this Friday (Jan. 11) starting around 7 p.m.

New musicians are more than welcome to drop in to the jam. Just bring your own equipment and set up as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, if you enjoy old-time country music, plan on attending. Admission is only a toonie, which goes towards heating (or cooling) costs.
