The city's promotional partnership with the Red Wing Area Chamber of Commerce ended this morning when the City Council voted to discontinue the 8-year-old agreement. The move came four days after the council voted to terminate its lease with the chamber at the train depot on Levee Street. During a special meeting, the council voted 5-1 with no discussion to terminate the promotional agreement. President Steve Castner made the motion, and Joe Krueger made the second.

Residents across the nation deserve to find out the results of the presidential election on a timely and reasonable basis. Legislation under consideration threatens to keep Wisconsin residents in the dark -- at the whim of election officials. Assembly bill 113 proposes that clerks withhold from public inspection records of the canvass of the presidential election until 10 o'clock that night. The consequences are clear for the public.
Red Wing's Al Harteneck threw his 10th perfect game Wednesday night. Harteneck bowled the perfecto in the Businessmen's League at Nybo's Lanes. It was his third game of the night.

ST. PAUL -- Allowing more nuclear waste to be stored in Minnesota either is good for business or is nuclear racism, depending upon who does the analysis. The dispute's two sides on Wednesday began debating a House bill to allow Xcel Energy to store more nuclear waste at its Prairie Island and Monticello plants. Discussion will continue Tuesday, and maybe Wednesday, on a bill written by Rep. Torrey Westrom, R-Elbow Lake.
