COON RAPIDS, Minn. -- Been there. Done that. It's old hat. Nobody would have blamed members of the Red Wing girls golf team if they had adopted that attitude Wednesday during the state Class AA golf meet at Bunker Hills Golf Course. After all, the Wingers had won two straight state titles and with a 13-shot lead, appeared to be headed for their third crown. But the Wingers stayed focused. And arrogance certainly never entered the picture.
ZUMBROTA -- Optimism about the future of the Zumbrota Nursing Home and assisted living apartments remains high, although officials cannot say who is likely to own or operate them a few months from now. Financial troubles -- too few patients and too much debt -- forced the Zumbrota Community Hospital to close at the end of April.

WABASHA -- Weapons and drugs seized last month from Wabasha County Jail cells led authorities to believe inmates planned to escape and attack jail staff, Sheriff Rodney Bartsh said today. A "shakedown" of 13 cells May 23 yielded a trace amount of methamphetamine, a pipe rolled from a Trivial Pursuit game card, a piece of Plexiglass shaved into the shape of a key and two spoons filed down to knife points in a couple of the cells, Bartsh said. Tightly rolled magazines in the shape of a club also were recovered. "We feel they were trying to escape," he said.

SOFTBALL Regis 2, Pepin 1
LAKE CITY -- It had just opened a day earlier, May 20, but Skyline on Pepin -- formerly Waterman's -- already had taken on a new demeanor. The buzz of the lunch crowd signaled a revitalized atmosphere geared for local customers. It was nearly 10 years in the making, owner Duane Noreen said of his ownership of the 20-year-old restaurant, which has changed little in the dining area as the new owners refurbished the kitchen, replacing nearly all the equipment. Now Noreen has an 18-year lease with options and is intent on keeping the restaurant locally owned -- whether he turn
ELLSWORTH -- Six years after an accident during a school play rehearsal left her paralyzed, Tasha Schuh hopes her story will comfort and inspire young people facing their own challenges. Schuh, now just a semester short of a college degree, will speak June 8 at what organizers hope will become a regular program for area middle school and high school youth, college students and adults.
