People representing nearly every special interest imaginable are lining up before lawmakers, asking that their programs be spared from inevitable budget cuts. Add the Republican Eagle, as a representative of the Minnesota Newspaper Association, to the que. Our special interest is a bit broader than most, however. Our concern affects all Minnesotans. We request that the state keep intact the information policy analysis division within the Department of Administration.
Basketball Sixth grade Red Wing had two teams competing in the St. Cloud Winter Shootout during the weekend. Red Wing White placed third. Team members were Andy Ahern, Sam Bezdichek, Connor Burke, Nate Kelly, Alex Nelson, Isaac Oeltjen, Joe Smith and Alex Symanski. Red Wing Rockets took fifth place. The Rockets lost to Sartell, which advanced to the championship game, but then won the next three games.
To The Editor: On Jan. 10, Hans Blix, chief U.N. weapons inspector, told the Security Council that his team hadn't found any "smoking guns." On Jan. 27, Blix will make a full report to the council; he's widely expected to repeat that, to date, no evidence of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction have been found. And according to newspaper reports, Tony Blair's "assessment of the situation is increasingly in line with that of Mr. Blix." Meanwhile, at the White House, presidential spokesman Ari Fleischer continued to make the case for invading Iraq.

Roseanne Grosso was elected vice chairwoman of the Goodhue County Public Health Board at Tuesday's meeting, one week after she was bypassed for a similar post on the County Board. Bob Noah, Kenyon, was elected Public Health chairman. Grosso, who represents Welch Township and the western half of Red Wing, expressed her gratitude, and asked why she was selected for a vice chairman this time but not last week.
Katie Mettling, Britta Hendrickson, Erin Kelly, Jess Kelly and Megan Swanson didn't start for the Red Wing girls basketball team Tuesday night against Cannon Falls. But the four reserves found themselves in the middle of the action with the game on the line in the third quarter. Coach Carl Pierson wasn't pleased with his starters after a lackluster start to the second half, so he gave the reserves a chance to shine. Although the starters weren't out for long, Red Wing's reserves helped the Wingers regain momentum and hold off the Bombers for a 38-32 nonconference victory.<
The duties of City Council members are demanding and time-consuming enough. It makes little sense to attend another meeting just for the sake of reporting back to the main body. We endorse -- with reservations -- the decision to make the council liaisons' attendance at their various city boards and commissions voluntary.
