Despite the loss of a State Arts Board grant, local support made it possible for the Red Wing Arts Association to schedule five Central Park concerts this summer. Linda Day-Dunlap, association director, cited major contributions from the Red Wing Area Foundation and Target Corp., as well as donations or in-kind help from 10 local businesses. "We were able to do a concert series as in the past," without cutting back on quality or on the number of programs, she said.

The Minnesota State High School League has the unenviable responsibility of running our state tournaments, imposing and enforcing guidelines on high school athletes and governing all athletics taking place in this great state. While most don't discredit or covet their work, there is certainly room for improvement. And the MSHSL would better serve our state by making a few alterations. Fewer teams should make the high school football playoffs. Wisconsin already adopted this theory.
Last weekend, both Red Wing 11AA teams played host to a MBT State Qualifier Tournament at the new youth Athletic Fields. The Red Wing Red Sox and Red Birds played. The Red Sox blanked Ellsworth 15-0 Friday in the first game ever at the new field behind the Ath. Turner Eckstrom, Alex Simanski and Harrison Maroushek shared pitching duties. Maroushek hit an inside-the-park home run and Travis Balster went 3-for-3. Kas Mapel added two hits. Also Friday, the Red Birds defeated Zumbrota 7-1. Justin Lance, Justin Cunningham and Henry Jaeger combined for the win on the hill.
To The Editor: I attended the City Council meeting Tuesday to hear opinion on what to do about our tightened city budget. The question was basically: What should we cut, and what should we keep? I heard many thoughtful comments from people of all walks of life who are committed and passionate about programs and jobs that are all in line to be cut. Then I heard from City Council President Steve Castner that it all comes down to about $30 extra per household per year. Thirty dollars per household would be enough to save all the jobs and all the programs.
