Look and listen. That's what Jon Stravers, better known as Hawk, told a group of sixth-graders from Twin Bluff Middle School on Thursday morning after they departed Levee Park and headed slowly down the Mississippi River.

Tennis is supposed to be a relaxing, stress-free sport. But things were awfully tense during the boys Section 1AA meet Thursday at Red Wing High School. The No. 2 Wingers knew the meet against No. 3 Owatonna would be close. But not this close. Through five matches, the Wingers trailed 3-2. But shortly after, Red Wing's Stefan Voigt notched a win at No. 3 singles to knot the meet, 3-3. That left only Joe Bluhm out on the court for all the marbles. Bluhm, playing at No.

It's one thing for a mom to check up on a teen-age boy at a friend's house. But it's another thing if that call happens during "movie night," at which point it is pure humiliation. Movie night is a ritual at the house of Dave and Peggy Broze, current and former assistant coaches with the Red Wing High School track team. The Brozes have opened their home to the boys' distance runners every Monday night since August for a movie and sundaes. After practice, the boys head to Godfather's for supper and then make a dash to Brozes by 7 p.m.
A city committee is recommending that the Red Wing City Council accept an offer to purchase the historic train depot on Levee Street. The Depot Negotiation Committee on Wednesday said it will recommend that the city sell the depot to the Red Wing Area Fund for $128,000 the same price the city paid the railroad in 1990 when it bought the depot. Subsequently the city sold the building, then in disrepair, to the Area Fund for $1.
Cannon Falls baseball A headline on Wednesday's sports page was incorrect. Zach Montgomery is a baseball player for Cannon Falls, not Kenyon-Wanamingo. The headline should have read that Montgomery tossed a win "over" -- and not "for" -- Kenyon-Wanamingo. We're sorry for the error.
The federal government enacted a sweeping health-care law in April on the premise that it was looking out for the best interests of individuals' privacy. For one Red Wing man, the law -- which prevents the R-E from publishing ambulance runs with names -- means he was unable to have a quality visit with his sister before she died. More than one person has called in recent weeks asking why the R-E no longer publish names of people taken by Red Wing ambulance.
