To The Editor: On Saturday, when peace demonstrations were taking place in growing numbers all over the world, we were on Highway 61, perhaps 30 or 40 Red Wing people holding our little signs, greeted with appreciative beeps and thumbs up by many passing motorists -- and fingers up or thumbs down by a few. I suspect we each had as many reasons for being there as the Bush administration has offered for going to war. Their logic has been stuck together like a shish kebab without any stick running down the middle. First, it was the war against terrorism.

The Army men's swimming and diving program was one win shy of the program's 600th victory. The team couldn't get that victory Feb. 7 against Brown, but it wasn't due to Red Wing's Doug Klein. Klein did more than his share as he swept the diving competition. He won the one-meter diving with 277.13 points and the three-meter diving with 277.58. "The divers were a huge part of our success," Coach John O'Neill wrote on the team's Web site.

In a nutshell, she said, the more state aid that cities receive, the more they spend. Awada recommended cutting LGA by 51 percent to cities with populations exceeding 2,500. Red Wing's Finance Director Marshall Hallock said he is concerned that the report relied on per-capita data rather than analyzing both spending and revenue.
