ELLSWORTH -- Pierce County Finance Committee agreed Thursday to forward to the County Board a proposal to hire rather than elect the county's chief officials. The topic will be on the agenda for the Aug. 26 County Board meeting. The proposal does not have the committee's endorsement. "Personally, I can't see where something such as suggested here would in any way improve the persons selected for these offices," County Board Chairman Dick Truax said.

You'll have to forgive Corey Tauer for his overconfidence. After all, he is a first-year manager. Then again, maybe he can back up his predictions. When asked which team may be the favorite heading into the Class B state amateur baseball tournament this weekend, Tauer said, "Honestly, I'd pick us." "I think with our talent we really have a chance to win it," he said. "We seem to win the games when we need to." The Aces will open against the Marble Mallards, who will be coming from the Iron Range. The game will start at 5 p.m.

The stately Sheldon Theatre -- the 'Jewel Box' -- is one of Red Wing's main attractions. The theater has the ticket stubs to prove it; 30,000 patrons viewed stage performances during the 2002-03 season. But the economic impact of the theater -- indeed, the entire local arts scene -- reverberates throughout Red Wing.

The good news for the Red Wing School District is that fewer schools have been labeled as under performing by the state. Not so good is the fact that some students from Burnside Elementary School still appear to be struggling. That puts Burnside on a revised list of schools that are not making "adequate yearly progress." "This is our first year, so there are no punitive actions," Supt. Kelly Smith said.
