Kris Klassen's troubles this year won't be due to a lack of talent. Having too much talent and trying to figure out how to organize it might be her biggest challenge. The Red Wing boys tennis coach is excited about her team, but hasn't officially named her lineup. "We have 44 kids out for tennis this year and even our younger kids are very talented," Klassen said. "Our junior varsity team should be excellent." The Wingers were slated to open their season Friday, but Lakeville said it wasn't quite ready to compete and postponed the match.
Many residents will be surprised if they go to the Web sites for the city of Red Wing or Goodhue County to track down the most basic government information: the names of their elected representatives. For Burnside residents, Chuck Griffin still is listed as their City Council representative. Wacouta residents will find that Gary Iocco is identified as their county commissioner. Neither the city nor the county has updated its list of elected officials since the November elections.
