About $991,000 in grants and scholarships was awarded to graduating seniors Wednesday evening at the awards program at Red Wing High School. The community's contribution was $43,100 of the total amount. "This has been a great class," Principal Larry Sonju said. He opened the ceremony and presented the National Merit Commendation scholarships as well as the All Star student awards. Sonju said the amount of scholarship money was a little less than last year, but still very significant. Last year $1,068,800 was distributed with $46,150 from the community.
Red Wing's Patrick Herzog failed to advance to the state Class AA meet after a disappointing round Tuesday at Bellwood Oaks Golf Club in the Section 1AA meet. I say disappointing, although most people would consider shooting three-over par a fantastic round. But Herzog can do much better. Right now, Herzog is bummed. He had a legitimate chance to win a state title. Months of hard work and dedication did not pay off. Did he choke? No. He just didn't hit the ball well. And anyone who has played competitive golf knows that can happen from time to time.
Minnesotans can count themselves among the millions of Americans who will realize lower taxes following the federal tax cut signed by President Bush this week. Residents of other states won't be as fortunate. Minnesotans' good fortune is due in large part to Gov. Tim Pawlenty and the Republican-controlled House who insisted that state government tighten its belt to balance the state books. That hasn't been the case across the nation. Indeed, many states, faced with budget shortfalls during the economic slowdown, are marching forward with higher taxes.
HASTINGS -- Section 1AA is the toughest section in the state for boys golf. Yes, Section 4AA boosts two of the state's best teams in White Bear Lake and Elk River. But Section 1 has five legitimate state contenders and a handful of individuals capable of winning a state title. After Day 1 of the section meet last Thursday, Red Wing was in good shape. The Wingers held a one-stroke lead with an impressive score of 296.
To The Editor: Seven astronauts came rushing toward Earth with joy and anticipation, only to be placed like shining stars in the heavens forever. They were heroes to all. May they rest in peace. Seven were found; the joy touched all of our lives in all Christian nations. God bless our troops, the men and women, who gave their all, so we can vote, have freedom and worship. We pray for all of the faithful departed who gave up their lives through the mercy of God. May they rest in peace. The Lord says there is no greater thing than to lay down your life for a friend.
Some Goodhue County residents might revel in a new law effective today that makes it easier to carry a pistol for personal protection, for occupational reasons or simply because they want to pack heat. But over time the novelty of toting a handgun around town might wear off when people learn how inconvenient it can be, said Goodhue County Sheriff Dean Albers.

MIESVILLE -- The names aren't the same, but the rivalry between the Red Wing Aces and Miesville Mudhens still is intense. And another summer holiday battle just added fuel to the fire. Red Wing utilized its speed and timely hitting Monday to overcome an early 1-0 deficit and defeat the Mudhens 12-7 in a Classic Cannon Valley League contest at Jack Ruhr Field. The Aces stole 10 bases and capitalized on four Miesville errors.
