This spring and summer the Minnesota and Wisconsin Departments of Natural Resources will study recreational boating on the Mississippi River. The area will include pools 4 through 9, which is about from Red Wing to Lansing, Iowa. Minnesota is conducting the survey on the west side, and Wisconsin is doing the east side. The study will involve data collection of traffic at all boating sources: marinas, public boat launches, campgrounds, resorts, and riparian residences.
BLAINE, Minn. -- Red Wing boys track and field coach Jerry Schaubach called it a "mixed day." Red Wing had two participants -- Paul Gronvall and Casey Ide -- in the Class AA state tournament Friday. Red Wing's Gronvall failed to make the finals in the shot put as he struggled against the elements. "Rain started coming down pretty hard during the second flight of the shot put," Schaubach said. "Four of the top eight shot putters didn't make the finals." One of those was Gronvall, who threw 48-5.

The Winger football team found itself in unusual circumstances one night last October. In Austin playing a game that had switched sites due to the Red Wing teachers' strike, the players were in the unique position of coaching themselves. And they almost pulled it off. The Wingers fell behind early but made a valiant second-half comeback that fell just short, 28-26. It was one of the defining moments for the Red Wing High School class of 2003. The 2002-03 school year was memorable in many ways, and not all the remembrances will bring smiles.
