The Goodhue County Public Health Board delayed the hiring of a public health director until at least June and approved an interim management plan. Last fall, the board agreed to combine the nursing director and administrator's position after Administrator Rich Alitz resigned.

Only about 20 percent of the public health budget, or $3.2 million, is derived from the local property tax.

To The Editor: "Twelve years ago, in February of 1991, I crossed the border between Saudi Arabia and Iraq with the 24th Infantry Division. Back then I was a 20-year-old Abrams tank crewman, and I fought in several battles in southern Iraq. I can say from personal experience, the media got it wrong. The first Gulf War wasn't clean, it wasn't pretty, and it wasn't precise. In the chaos and destruction of battle, anything can happen. We killed a lot of people.
Ellsworth High School has sent many wrestlers on to area college programs, including Mark Matzek who is leading the way for Augsburg College. Matzek got two wins last week in a double-dual meet with South Dakota State University and St. Cloud State University. The sophomore's dominating wins at 133 pounds were a 12-4 major decision and a 19-3 technical fall. He is ranked eighth in his weight class in the latest Division III individual ratings. Augsburg is second as a team in NCAA Division III rankings. Ellsworth's Josh Erlandson also got a win in the meet for Augsburg.
HAGER CITY -- It wasn't on the agenda, but a contingent of parents used the Ellsworth School Board's meeting Monday night at Lindgren Elementary to express their concerns about the condition of some of the district's athletic programs and the efficacy of some coaches.

Valentine's Day is a day that people either love or hate. Whether you have a significant other or not doesn't seem to affect people's feelings of Valentine's Day in any drastic manner. It has been this way since the tradition began. There are a lot of differences in teen relationships today in comparison to a few decades ago. Today's high school relationships can be complicated; when we say "you won't understand," we're probably right.
To The Editor: Colin Powell put on a polished performance Wednesday at the U.N. Security Council. This was the clincher. Who could deny the need to attack Iraq after this overwhelming show? Well now, who could deny the rush to attack? Let's think about the audiences. There are we, the people of the United States, who have a tendency to trust our leaders. There are the governments of the U.S.
A 4-0 loss isn't anything to get excited about. But the Red Wing boys hockey team wasn't disappointed with its play after Saturday's setback to second-ranked (Class A) Blake at Prairie Island Arena. The Wingers played well for over two periods and held one of the most dangerous teams in the state in check. Blake, a team that beat Mahtomedi 7-0 early last week and rode a seven-game winning streak into Red Wing, has one of the state's top scorers in Brendan Kennedy (35 goals).
