A headline in Wednesday's Republican Eagle read, "Vikings hit rock bottom in latest scandal." I wrote it, and I meant it. For those who don't know, during the Vikings annual charity snowmobiling event near Onamia, Minn., a 30-year-old women allegedly was sexually assaulted while socializing with members of the Vikings organization. Charges were not immediately filed, but the investigation focused on several members of the Vikings, both players and personnel, a sheriff from Mille Lacs County said. Regardless of what happens, it's a sad situation.
MANKATO, Minn. -- After grabbing a two-goal lead early in the second period in Tuesday night's Section 1A playoff game against Mankato West, everything was looking good for the Red Wing girls hockey team. But the Wingers couldn't hold off the Scarlets as Mankato West came away with a 4-2 win. Red Wing ended its season at 8-14-1. "We didn't come to play," Coach Bay Shock said. "The last two games, we really played well. Even in the first period when we were up, we couldn't control the puck. I think we were a little nervous and apprehensive." K.C.

A fugitive recovery team from the Minnesota Department of Corrections arrested them at about 4 p.m.

Eric Eichorn, who opened Rivertown Sports last spring, has purchased 4 Seasons Sports, located a few blocks west at 2301 Old West Main St. He is operating both businesses at present, but eventually plans to close Rivertown Sports and move all his merchandise to the new store. Rivertown Sports is located at 1529 Old West. Main St. Eichorn plans to keep the 4 Seasons name and add to his bait and tackle merchandise geared for most types of fishing. Eichorn said the purchase of the 6,000-square-foot store was obvious since he needs more space and better parking.
