LAKE CITY -- Bay City got a big win over the Lake City Serpents Tuesday night. The Bombers led the entire game and outhit Lake City 10-7 for the win. Steve Bowe got things going for the Bombers as he led off the game with a single. He stole second base and advanced to third on a ground out. Bowe then scored on a fielder's choice when Shane Strain hit a shot to third base.
Thanks to the pathetic losers who had the guts to come down my driveway, steal 100 feet of garden hose, the spool it was on and the attachments. I don't know what their problem is. Their parents must be really proud. If anyone around town happens to see their neighbor has a garden hose with two purple attachments -- a flower nozzle and a straight nozzle with about eight different selections on it -- please call the police. It's really depressing. You can't keep anything in your yard anymore.

Political junkies were in their glory this past week as Minnesota became the center of presidential politics. The Twin Cities was visited by President Bush and six of the Democratic presidential candidates -- three in person and three via video conference. Average citizens, we suspect, focused their attention on the weather forecast in anticipation of summer weekend fun.

To The Editor: At the public hearing held Jan. 17 by our Red Wing City Council, we were told of our good fortune at having new businesses which have added to our tax base. We've long heard how fortunate we are at having the Xcel Energy plant here which provides much of the same. With all these advantages I must conclude our budget problem may well be due to overspending, not lack of income. Our governor has opted not to further burden the taxpayer.
BAY CITY -- The Bay City Bombers amateur baseball team split a pair of games over the weekend. Saturday, Menomonie defeated Bay City 4-1. Shane Strain led the Bombers, going 4-for-4. Tim Eaton had the only other hit for the Bombers. Bay City defeated Spring Valley 7-6 Sunday. Aric Kittelson earned the win and Shane Strain picked up the save. The Bombers scored three runs in the first, two in the second, one in the sixth and one in the seventh. Bay City pounded out nine hits. John Peterson led the way by going 3-for-3 with a double and three RBIs.
We have a $5 trillion deficit. So how do we pay for a $350 billion tax cut 60 percent for the wealthy? We just put the bill in an envelope, borrow the money for a stamp, and send it to our grandchildren. President Bush is one clever guy. In regard to the item from a veteran at the Volksfest parade in Goodhue (R-E, June 19): I'm a member of the American Legion and I, too, was a bit dismayed that there was no color guard. I think in the past the Legion from Bellechester has been asked to lead the parade, and maybe they should be asked again.
FIRE CALLS Saturday: responded to Highways 63 and 35,
The so-called "Birthplace of Minnesota" is now home to the hip and trendy. It seems Stillwater, Minn., long considered a traditional, if not exhausted, regional haven for weekend vacationing and antique hunting, is changing with the times. Recent ventures of recreational and culinary creativity have gone over big, making the city along the St.
