PRESCOTT -- Acting on a tip from informants, Pierce County authorities searched a Prescott apartment Wednesday afternoon and reportedly recovered methamphetamine and all the items needed to manufacture the drug. Sheriff Everett Muhlhausen said the search of 1354 Ash St., Apt. 4, recovered components that are rare and only used to manufacture the drug. Items included an "extremely high" amount of a chemical called red phosphorus that is difficult to obtain legally and usually used for matches. "We found everything," Muhlhausen said.
I anticipated a call: "What's wrong with the R-E? Don't you know how to spell?" The call never came, which means that the headline in Wednesday's edition -- "Mooving up the ranks" -- accomplished what we intended. It drew readers' attention to but did not distract them from the substance of the article. The story was about youths showing their cows during a Holstein show at the Cannon Valley Fair.

The Red Wing Aces failed to come up with a win Tuesday night at the Athletic Field, but the presence of KARE 11 sports reporter Eric Perkins was enough to make it a successful evening of amateur baseball. Perkins was in town to film a "Perk at Play" segment, which ran during the 10 p.m. news. He also broadcast the 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. news live from the Ath. "A lot of us will never forget this," Aces Manager Corey Tauer said. "Even though we didn't win, this night was so much fun. I can't thank Eric Perkins enough.
ELLSWORTH -- A request to rezone a 568-acre farm with mostly choice soil to allow dense residential development has raised doubts about Pierce County's Comprehensive Land Management Plan. The request is inconsistent with the first two goals of the county's land plan, said County Board member Maureen Ash, River Falls Township. The first goal is to "preserve for farming the great majority of the prime agriculture soils in Pierce County while allowing for changes in the farming industry and the rural economy."
