The Sheldon Brass Band, fresh from a second-place finish in national competition, will present its spring concert at 8 p.m. April 26 at the Sheldon Theatre. The local ensemble was runnerup in the Honors Division at the North American Brass Band championships held in Little Rock, Ark., earlier this month. It was the band's first trip to the annual competition in four years, and the first under the direction of James Kurschner, who became conductor last year.
Moratorium votes Goodhue County Commissioner Richard Samuelson cast the dissenting vote Tuesday on the proposed moratorium for lot splits of less than 35 acres within an A-3 Fringe zoning district. He voted for approval of the moratorium on change of zones from A-1 to A-2 within the 58 sections of the county. Wednesday's report was incorrect; we are sorry for the error.
MINNEAPOLIS -- The Red Wing boys golf team is sitting in the middle of the pack after the opening day of the Tri-State Invitational Friday at the Les Bolstad Golf Course. The tournament concludes today and the Wingers tee off at 9:20 a.m. this morning on Hole No. 10. The tournament is considered the best in the state by most.
Regina Nicolosi gave up her country when she married an American and moved here. She's not willing to give up her religion in order to fulfill the next stage of her life. Nicolosi believes she is called to become a priest in the Roman Catholic Church. But the Catholic Church restricts priesthood to males. If she switched to a different church, ordination would not be impossible. "I have asked the question myself," she said. "Why not join the Episcopalian Church and be ordained there?" Put simply, she doesn't want to leave the Catholic Church.
To The Editor: It appears again that taxpayers of the Prescott School District are being asked to shoulder the burden of a new school via a substantial increase in property taxes. This madness has got to stop. There have to be other alternatives to finance improvements to our school system to ensure a quality education to the children instead of defaulting to apparently the easiest path by throwing a referendum out there, hoping it passes, and having the taxpayer pick up the cost. In four years, we have seen our property taxes increase 85 percent.

The news is grim. Smallpox has a mortality rate up to 50 percent. It is highly contagious and easily spread. If 400 people are infected initially, 8,000 could be infected within two weeks. The small, round sores erupt across the body, eventually causing pitted scars -- if not death. Don't expect a bright side to the news, either, said Dr. Michael Anderson of Red Wing, director of emergency and urgent care at Zumbrota Community Hospital.
LAKE CITY -- Krystle Frank went 2-for-3 with two RBIs to lead the Zumbrota-Mazeppa softball team in a 12-2 win over Lake City in the Hiawatha Valley League. Jess Huneke earned the win on the mound for Z-M. She went five innings, allowing two earned runs on three hits while striking out two and walking two. Lindsay Krahn took the loss for the Tigers. "Defensively, this was much, much better," Lake City Coach Dan Schroeder said. "But this was probably the best team we've played. They have some girls who can just crush the ball.
