More than 100 years ago it became a shoe store. Today it carries on that tradition instilled in its current owners by longtime owner Leroy "Fritz" Hughes, who took over half a century ago. "We were around 30 years old, and we wanted to know where we were going to be at," said Rod Hauschildt, who owns the store with business partner Jim Boxrud. In 1965, Hughes had hired Hauschildt away from his job as a salesman at Red Wing Shoe Co. When Hughes had an opening six months later, Hauschildt recommended Boxrud -- also a Red Wing Shoe Co. employee.

Xcel Energy and the Prairie Island Tribal Council have reached a tentative agreement Monday regarding proposed increased storage of spent fuel at the Prairie Island nuclear plant. The agreement is contingent on a referendum by tribal members, which is expected to be done by April 17. The agreement would boost Xcel's standing as it asks the Minnesota Legislature to approve additional on-site storage of nuclear waste. "It does help to remove one issue that legislators have expressed concerns about," said Scott Wilensky, Xcel's executive director of state government affairs.<
Red Wing photographer Phil Revoir is hoping to develop a 4.1-acre parcel that he owns along Highway 61. But he wants to make sure city staff knows it is not the land that was clear cut nearly a year ago. His parcel, located on more than 360 feet of frontage, is zoned agriculture-residential. He wants to rezone the land for general business development. The Planning Commission is expected to hear the request during its next meeting at 7 p.m.
To The Editor: There have been a number of letters recently trying to state that one must support military action in Iraq, or support the policies of President Bush in Iraq, in order to support our troops and oppose Saddam Hussein. I am dismayed that people would use such an argument or logic. Does that mean if I pray for God to open both Bush's and Saddam's heart to a path of peace -- something both of their hearts seem to be lacking -- I am not supporting our troops? If we are going to apply such polarizing logic, we will cease to be able to talk to each other at all.
The Red Wing boys basketball team remembers the last time the Wingers met Mankato East. And it's not a good memory. The Cougars knocked the Wingers out of the state quarterfinals in 2000. A few Wingers even remember losing to East on the football field, during the state semifinals at the Metrodome. So the Wingers won't need much more motivation for Tuesday's Class AAA quarterfinal. Red Wing will face Mankato East at 7 p.m.
