The Red Wing softball team didn't schedule a doubleheader with Shakopee Thursday night. But that's almost what the Wingers got. Three times, the Wingers trailed the Sabers by one run. And three times the Wingers came back. It took 12 innings, but Red Wing finally came out on the right end, dropping the Sabers 4-3 in a Missota Conference marathon. Emily Klein scored the winner on an RBI sacrifice by Tina Strauss. Genna Strauss and Klein started the 12th with back-to-back singles. Jamie Novak's infield single loaded the bases for Tina Strauss.

ZUMBROTA -- Is the city of Zumbrota willing to help save Zumbrota Health Care, and specifically, the Zumbrota Nursing Home and the assisted living apartments known as The Bridges? Health-care officials, who were forced last week to shut down the Zumbrota Community Hospital because of financial woes, posed the question Thursday night to the Zumbrota City Council.
