Ethel Agnes Feldman, 87, Red Wing, died Monday at her home. She was born July 7, 1915, in Red Wing to John and Leacy (Carnes) Feldman. She graduated from Central High School in 1933. She took courses in typing and bookkeeping. She worked as a companion to a friend for 19 years, as a secretary for nine years at the Boxrud Co., and as a secretary of Goodhue County Farm Bureau for 15 years.
It was difficult for emotions not to be stirred when Allen Poole delivered the Memorial Day address along the Mississippi riverfront, and when Red Wing's first two servicemen from the war in Iraq -- Troy Jonas and Alan Davis -- arrived home safely last month. The freedom for which our veterans fight is represented by Old Glory herself flying freely in the breeze. That said, we respectfully part ways with U.S. Rep. John Kline and others in their recent votes in support of a constitutional amendment that would ban burning of the U.S. flag.
County Administrator David Hamilton will serve as interim administrator of Goodhue County Public Health as the agency transitions into new management. The reorganization was approved Tuesday by the Public Health Board. Last month the board decided to receive a staff report that was prompted by budget concerns. Public Health is designed to operate as a separate entity with its own administrator.

EL PASO -- Methamphetamine was being manufactured in a trailer home destroyed by a fire last month in El Paso Township near Ellsworth, investigators concluded. Pierce County authorities investigated an explosion and resulting fire May 25 at N655 County Highway BB after firefighters found items they suspected were related to illegal drugs. Evidence of chemicals, ingredients and equipment commonly used to make methamphetamine were recovered. The fire destroyed the trailer home along with two cars and a motorcycle.
BLAINE, Minn. -- Nate Safe had the area's highest finish at the Class A track and field meet with a second-place finish in the shot put. Safe scored 10 points for Cannon Falls with the red-ribbon performance. The senior threw 54-04.25 in the finals. Esko's Chris Hudspith won the event with a throw of 55-01.50. Zumbrota-Mazeppa's Ben Sand competed in the triple jump. Sand failed to make the finals after his three jumps in the preliminaries. Zumbrota-Mazeppa's Caitlin Perra surprised even herself with her third place in the 400 dash.
To The Editor: I am concerned about the use of lawn chemicals. I lost a dog to a neighbor's' use of these products. Birds are very susceptible. I urge everyone to give this very serious thought. Judy Beers Red Wing
ZUMBROTA -- The Zumbrota Livestock Auction Market, a local family-owned business with nearly 40 years of history in the community, is being sold to Central Livestock Association, which operates livestock markets in South St. Paul and Albany, Minn., West Fargo, N.D., and Sioux Falls, S.D. The change of ownership will be effective July 1. Don and Pat Webster founded the business in 1964. Today their sons, Gerry and Tom -- who grew up in the business -- are overseeing daily activities, and Tom's wife, Barb, works in the office.
