Have you ever been bored during the winter season? Well, you might want to look into skiing as a pastime. If you've never skied before, now would be a good time to start. It is recommended to rent skis the first couple of times to see if you really like it. That way you won't end up wasting your money if you don't enjoy it. Lessons can be pricey, so if you can, ask a friend to teach you. Skiing and snowboarding might seem really hard at first, and at times you may feel the urge to quit. Don't worry, it is quite simple once you get the hang of it.

ELLSWORTH -- Youths in Pierce County, specifically at Ellsworth High School, are making a difference in their community and with their peers about tobacco control and education. Ellsworth High School received a $1,500 grant last year that has allowed more focus and effort to be put into the tobacco program. "It is really a passion for me," Ellsworth High nurse Sharlene Kreye said.
Two local bowlers achieved perfection last week in leagues at Nybo's Lanes. Last Saturday in the River City Mixed league, Chad Schoeder rolled a 300 game. Schoeder finished with a 644 series. Both totals were league-highs for Saturday night. Friday, Red Wing bowler Mike Wood Jr. rolled a 300. Even more impressive was Wood's 811 series. Both totals also were league-highs. Wood plays in the Bush League Friday nights.
Winter is here in full swing, and for high schoolers, it doesn't just mean cold weather and bad roads. This is the time of year where many students are starting to feel the stress of the school year. The few days that we get to enjoy off of school during dismal season are looked forward to with great anticipation and relief. Unfortunately, due to the strike that the education community experienced this year, many days scheduled as breaks were re-entered into the school calendar.
For a journalist, covering a meeting can be as boring and uninspiring as reading the phone book. But for an outdoors journalist, covering a meeting, particularly one hosted by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, is typically the stuff of fireworks. I've gone to meetings where civility was cast aside like an old sweater vest. I've seen fist fights and staged revolts and heard conspiracy theories thrown around by the black helicopter crowd that had no basis in fact, let alone reality.

The Red Wing boys hockey team snapped a five-game winless streak with a 2-0 win over Farmington Friday night in the Missota Conference. "For us this was really a must-win," Coach George Nemanich said. "Farmington is a section opponent and if we want to get a good section seed then we needed this win. "I think the guys responded to that. To be at home was a big factor." The Wingers scored their first goal on a power-play at the 13:40 mark of the opening period.
