Bob Bovee and Gail Heil will perform for the first square dance in the new hall at Hobgoblin Music, home of Stoney End Folk Harp in rural Red Wing. The dance floor in the old gray barn on Highway 19 will be inaugurated at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 11. Bovee and Heil will call the dance in addition to performing their American traditional music. They have a large and varied repertoire including authentic cowboy songs, blues and ragtime numbers, ballads and yodels.
Perennial favorite Leo Kottke will make his traditional midwinter appearance at the Sheldon Theatre at 8 p.m. Jan. 11. Kottke is recognized as one of the premier guitarists performing today. He has been entertaining crowds with a unique finger-picking style for more than 30 years. "His ability to make a 12-string guitar sound as if four other guitarists have stepped out on stage with him has transformed the old tradition of folk guitar into a modern art," according to the Sheldon.
Red Wing's residential taxes grew among the fastest in the state in 2002, according to a tax watchdog group. For owners of a $112,700 house -- the city's average assessed value -- property taxes rose 15.6 percent, the fourth largest increase of the 32 nonmetropolitan communities studied by the Citizens League of Minnesota. Figures from the Minnesota Department of Revenue varied slightly.
Red Wing junior point guard Patrick Herzog was silent for much of Friday night's Missota Conference matchup against Academy of Holy Angels. He scored just five points in the first three quarters. But when the Wingers needed him, Herzog stepped up. Herzog drilled a 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter to send the game into overtime. Then, he scored seven points in the extra frame, leading the Wingers to a 64-63 victory. "That's what good players do. They step up when their team needs them," Coach Kraig Ulveling.

The headlines (R-E, Jan. 2) should have been the complete lack of deaths and reports of drunken driving. It's amazing. It's the first year in how long? The statistics were way down, weren't they? That should be a good article. Could you have a reporter find out what in the world that thing is up in the sky south of Red Wing? It looks like a clock or big balloon or plane flying back and forth. It's been up there several nights.
The Red Wing girls hockey program honored Alyssa Johnson in an emotional ceremony prior to the Wingers' game against Rosemount Thursday evening. Johnson was a standout player for the Wingers and a volunteer coach last season but was killed in a car accident last March. Despite the beautiful ceremony, however, it didn't translate into a win. Rosemount controlled the tempo and gave the Wingers few scoring chances in a 5-0 nonconference win. Red Wing dropped to 3-8 overall. "They came out in the first period and dominated," Coach Bay Shock said.
