Enterprise hamlet council is seeking to obtain an old weigh scale building and property from the territorial government. Enterprise wants old weigh scale building
The Hamlet of Enterprise is seeking to assume ownership of an old weigh scale building and property, which occupies a prominent site along Highway 1 in the community. Council unanimously passed a motion on July 7 to apply to get the property transferred from the GNWT to the hamlet. John McKee, the hamlet's interim senior administrative officer (SAO), told council that the old weigh scale building is currently an asset of the Department of Public Works and Services.

Brenda Johnson is sergeant of the Fort Smith Patrol of the Canadian Rangers. Always a positive experience
Brenda Johnson of Fort Smith has been a member of the Canadian Rangers for more than 20 years. She joined in 1993, just two years after a Canadian Rangers patrol was formed in the community. "I am actually surprised how much time has passed since I joined," she said. "It must have been enjoyable, otherwise I would not still be involved. It sure doesn't seem that long, though."

Author and former CBC journalist Patti-Kay Hamilton at the Hay River Literacy Society’s fundraiser Jan. 26, where she told stories of her time working for the broadcasting company in the North. More recently, she's won accolades for her short story, The Hunter and the Swan.

Big win for short story
“Do we let nature take its course or do we, as humans, step in?” This is the question Patti-Kay Hamilton refers to her award-winning story, The Hunter and the Swan. The short story, which follows a hunter's dilemma of whether to put an animal out of its misery or let it be, recently won her this year's Canada Writes prize for creative non-fiction.

The three-time champion Inuvik Benchwarmers team won its third straight NWT Women's Slo-pitch Championships July 13 with a 30-2 thrashing of the Pitches Be Crazy team. Showing they are number one, in the back row from left, are Justin Simms, Lisa Burns, Courtney Larocque, Terra McNabb, Chelsea Larocque, Chloe Larocque, Stacey Christie, Jenn Kalinek, Natasha Kulikowski, Nichole McDonald and Jeremy Burns. In the front row, from left, are Wilma Hendrick, Rebecca Kaglik, bat girl Adrianna Hendrick, Sophie Stefure and Shandie Tanner.

Crowning the champions
For one Inuvik team, it was all about the three-peat. For another Inuvik team, it was all about ruing what might have been. The Benchwarmers from Inuvik rallied from losses during the first two days of the NWT Women's Slo-pitch Championship that began July 11 to take out team Pitches Be Crazy in a wild 30-2 thrashing in the final game to cop their third consecutive territorial crown.
