Letter to the Editor

Dear editor,

On reading my issues of the Fort Frances Times, I've read with interest the idea of building a hotel on the site of the former Shevlin Woodyard.

It seems to me that Fort Frances has plenty of accommodation, with all the building additions and renovations that have been done in the industry lately.


What a privilege to be nurtured in a family where the biblical views of love were so evident, cherished and endorsed. If only every young adult were blessed and launched with these attributes. However, that can only happen if we recognize that we all are created in God's image.

God's grace

The word Grace is defined as a gift, benefit, favour, gracious, liberality and the divine influence upon the heart and its reflection in our lifestyle. The grace of God is a free gift. We can't earn it by good behaviour or good works.
