This edition's student spotlight shines on Weston Kramp, a sophomore at Red Wing High School. He was chosen because of his interesting and rather unusual hobby -- bug collecting. What first interested you in bug collecting? "When I was 3, I saw my mom's collection and wanted to start my own," he said. Are you in any groups or organizations? If so, have you won any awards for your collections? "I won a reserve champion ribbon in 4-H. I've also won a few blue ribbons on my other collections." He also collects foreign coins and currency.
The Prairie Island Native American community has been generating attention this legislative session for the cards it holds in the nuclear waste debate at the nearby Xcel Energy nuclear power plant. But Prairie Island, and the other tribes that profit handsomely from casinos, are equally embroiled in the debate over whether to expand gambling in Minnesota. The push to expand gambling beyond the borders of reservations is not new, but the flush economy kept the idea from moving forward in previous years.

To The Editor: It was a little over a year ago on my way to work in the morning. As I was driving out of Red Wing right by the river bottoms, my car suddenly made a load crack and took off the road. No matter what I did, it wouldn't slow down and I hit a tree at 68 mph. The Fire Department responded, and then I was air lifted to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. I lost the lower portion of my right leg, broke my back in two places and suffered spinal cord damage. I have since that time had several surgeries on my stomach due to the seat belt.

A syringe found Thursday at Colvill Park has triggered the need for public awareness. Derek Yarwood, a 10-year-old from Hager City, was participating in a fishing class at the park when he found a syringe on the shore. He picked it up, thinking it would be a good device to blow up worms, according to his father, Jason Yarwood. This resulted in the needle poking him once in a finger and once in his thumb. "He was scared, because his mother was worried. ... He didn't know why he should be scared," said Yarwood.
