Memorial Day will be celebrated Monday with patriotic programs throughout the region. In Red Wing, the observance will have a new format with a full concert at Bay Point Park instead of a parade. Veterans groups in other area cities will present traditional programs. Red Wing's observance will begin with a solemn ceremony at 8 a.m. at the Veterans Memorial in John Rich Park, said Daryl Duden, chairman of the Memorial Day Committee.

AUSTIN, Minn. -- The Red Wing softball team won another game in the Section 1AAA playoffs Friday night, but unfortunately also lost another one to end the Wingers' season. Battling back in the loser's bracket, Red Wing beat Northfield 4-2 but then lost to Winona 7-0. "I told the girls going into the tournament that each game is a new season," Red Wing Coach Clair Austin said. "In the past 10 years, we've never gotten to day two of this tournament." The Wingers got revenge against Northfield, a team that had beaten them twice during the regular season.
The sun dominates the sky in June -- even the night sky, which never gets as dark as it does in winter. That's good news for lovers of sunlit evenings and lingering twilight, but it hands star watchers the shortest nights just when the weather is getting nice and warm. All is not lost, however. Behind the veil of light, Mars is brewing up a spectacle. Seen only by early risers, Mars has been growing and brightening as Earth closes in on it. Mars comes up after midnight during most of June, but late in the month, it begins rising before midnight.

MADISON, Wis. -- Sen. Sheila Harsdorf, R-River Falls, expressed fundamental support for a plan to freeze property tax bills. "When we said no new taxes to balance this budget, that doesn't mean we just sit by while taxes are shifted to property taxpayers," she said.

Officials at the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system -- including Minnesota State College-Southeast Technical at Red Wing and Winona -- don't have much control over the funding cuts dished out by lawmakers. Their task is to manage their budgets so they will have minimal effect on marketing their institutions. But they do have the ability to establish a uniform identity, which is equally important to promoting the system to students.
