A nontraditional class for students with emotional behavioral disorders, and some Native American students, is opening new doors and hope for those who previously had little to strive for. "You've got a bond here with them that you could never have in an office," said Chris Rogers, Red Wing High School social worker. He was bundling up before hiking a trail near Hay Creek where his class would be building a winter shelter. Rogers teaches a winter survival course that is run through the Student Educational Adventure program.

NORTHFIELD, Minn. -- The Red Wing gymnastics team placed sixth out of eight teams at the Northfield invitational Saturday. The Wingers had a team score of 129.25. Northfield won the invitational with a score of 142.95. "We need to break the 130 barrier," Coach Beth Mayer said. "We've been very consistent. We've been right at 129 for a while. But when you add up everyone's season bests, we are in the mid-130s. We just need to have everyone do their best on the same night." Tami Klenke led the Wingers on the vault with a 19th-place finish.
