CORRECTION Scrapper's Story Scrapper's Story opened last Thursday in Red Wing. A story in Tuesday's edition reported that the business would open today. We're sorry for the error. BRIEFS 4-H Goodhue County 4-H fund-raising committee will meet at 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Cannonball in Cannon Falls.
It's awfully nice of Packer fans not to say a solitary word against another team's total embarrassment -- 6-10 record and no playoff spot. In reference to the article on Wal-Mart (R-E, Jan. 7): If Wal-Mart's not looking to take employees from our downtown stores, why are their representatives going into our stores and handing out little blue cards to our employees, asking them if they are happy or if they'd like to change, and with a contact person on the card? Wal-Mart normally opens with twice as many people as they intend to keep, and then after they weed through, then what?
The Red Wing City Council's annual retreat offers opportunity to orient new members and give time for newcomers and veterans alike to shape an agenda. But there will be extra work for this year's workshop Friday and Saturday at Mississippi National Links. Newly elected President Steve Castner faces an especially difficult task in getting the council to think as one -- emphasizing "we" over "me" -- and to lay out a vision for the city's continued vitality.
At Fairview Red Wing: Dec. 29, 2002 Willie Charles Thomas III was born Sunday to Tonya Rowan and Willie Thomas of Red Wing.
ELLSWORTH Abby Johnson scored seven points for the Prescott girls basketball team Tuesday night. Not a big deal, right? Johnson's point output will show up in the box score, but what won't be there is the countless shots she altered. Johnson's domination in the paint and point guard Bre Syverson's outside play helped the Cardinals earn a 51-43 Middle Border Conference win over Ellsworth. Ellsworth's Megan Strom is one of the area's top ball handlers. She was able to beat Prescott defenders off the dribble consistently.
How many people are employed by the city of Red Wing, full time and part time? Not all we Packers fans are so nice. But those Packers fans have their mouths so full of crow yet, we have to chew a little yet before we can get back at them. When Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Kathleen Blatz administered the oath of office at inauguration ceremonies, she instructed each individual to raise their right hand. However, Mike Hatch took his oath with his left hand raised. Is it acceptable to raise either hand? Got an idea, complaint or compliment?
