Local angler Mike Rousseau.

If you see a boat on the river in December, chances are it’s local angler Mike Rousseau.

Cornwall’s Mike Rousseau has a great respect for fishing. The life-long angler says he has learned a lot about fishing in his 32 years.
“No matter how good you are, you will always get a slice of humble pie from time-to-time when the fish just decide they don’t want to eat what you’re giving them.” Rousseau says. “You think you have them dialled in and the river gets flooded and changes everything. I love the comradery in the fishing community. There is a lot of secrecy but it seems like when you meet someone and they say they like to fish, you know at that moment you probably just met a new friend.” more

Corben Cameron has an absolute passion for martial art grappling. The elevenyear- old Corben, a grade 6 Viscount Alexander student has been training 5 times per week for the past 4 years at Cornwall MMA, with each session being either 1 or 1 ½ hrs long.
Corben, who trains in various forms of grappling, currently holds an orange belt in Judo and has set himself a goal of one day earning a Black belt in that discipline. Corben has been quite successful so far in the martial arts, having won a Cornwall Lions Club “Athlete of the year” award in his sport.

Corben recently competed in the Grappling Industries jiu-jitsu tournament held at Ryerson University in Toronto. This very large event hosted well over one thousand competitors from as far away as Michigan. Corben competed in two separate divisions, gi, and no gi grappling. These divisions were a gruelling round-robin format where each competitor fights one two-minute round match against each individual in the division. The eventual winner is determined not by the number of victories, but by the total number of points accumulated in the tournament. Cornwall MMA Judo and wrestling instructor Trevor Leroux was very impressed with Corben’s performance at the tournament. more
