Red Wing High School announced its 2003 All-Star Athletes during the annual athletic awards banquet Friday at the Courtyard Cafe. This year's winners were seniors Marcus Schmit and Angie Hartmann. Schmit lettered in football, basketball and baseball. He helped the Winger football team reach the state tournament in 2001. Schmit also was a major contributor during the boys basketball state tournaments for the past two seasons. "Marcus is an excellent choice for male athlete of the year," basketball Coach Kraig Ulveling said.

Tennis is supposed to be a relaxing, stress-free sport. But things were awfully tense during the boys Section 1AA meet Thursday at Red Wing High School. The No. 2 Wingers knew the meet against No. 3 Owatonna would be close. But not this close. Through five matches, the Wingers trailed 3-2. But shortly after, Red Wing's Stefan Voigt notched a win at No. 3 singles to knot the meet, 3-3. That left only Joe Bluhm out on the court for all the marbles. Bluhm, playing at No.
FIRE CALLS Thursday: false alarm at S.B. Foot Tanning Co., 1835 Bench St.; 8:35 a.m. RIVER TRAFFIC Wednesday: Jennie K., 12 barges, up, 12:01 a.m.; James W. Buky, 12 barges, up, 9:30 a.m.; Bill Carneal, 12 barges, down, 5:06 p.m. TRAFFIC COURT The following cases of area residents were processed in Goodhue County District Court. Fines do not necessarily include surcharges or other fees imposed by the court. April 28: Rene Hafkenscheid, 147 E.
It's one thing for a mom to check up on a teen-age boy at a friend's house. But it's another thing if that call happens during "movie night," at which point it is pure humiliation. Movie night is a ritual at the house of Dave and Peggy Broze, current and former assistant coaches with the Red Wing High School track team. The Brozes have opened their home to the boys' distance runners every Monday night since August for a movie and sundaes. After practice, the boys head to Godfather's for supper and then make a dash to Brozes by 7 p.m.
A city committee is recommending that the Red Wing City Council accept an offer to purchase the historic train depot on Levee Street. The Depot Negotiation Committee on Wednesday said it will recommend that the city sell the depot to the Red Wing Area Fund for $128,000 the same price the city paid the railroad in 1990 when it bought the depot. Subsequently the city sold the building, then in disrepair, to the Area Fund for $1.
