    A weekend of flooding

    Brandon Sun publisher Ewan Pow took in some of the flood fight over the weekend.

  • No need to book a tee-time at Brandon's Wheat City Golf Course in the near future. The rising Assiniboine River, which has yet to crest,  has breached the dike protecting the course along the first hole.
