PRIOR LAKE, Minn. -- Thoughts of a Missota Conference title might have gotten in the way of a victory for the Red Wing boys basketball team Tuesday night. The Wingers, who would have clinched the title with a win, were defeated by Prior Lake 64-48. Red Wing dropped to 18-6 overall, 11-2 in the conference. "This was a huge wakeup call," Red Wing Coach Kraig Ulveling said. "From the get-go we weren't ready to compete. I think we just thought we'd go over there and expect to go through the motions." Instead the Wingers struggled from the beginning.
To The Editor: Jails and prisons are full. Taxpayers can't afford new ones. Courts are busy. Prisoners love the revolving door. Jail and prisons keep them off the street for a little while. There's no money to educate them to the straight and narrow path. Here is a thought: Pipe into the cells only the best music, such as religion, classical and songs that are upbeat. Television must be on the positive only. If a man finds a wallet, does he take the money out and throw the wallet in the trash bin?

There probably isn't any good or easy way to slice $1.8 million from the Red Wing School District's budget for 2003-04. But the Finance Committee on Monday outlined for Supt. Kelly Smith and School Board members a few cost-cutting measures that it finds, if not desirable, at least palatable. Jefferson Elementary's days are almost certainly numbered as a student center. There was little discussion Monday because closure appears a forgone conclusion. Several committee members have children who attended the school, said Mike Schultz.

ROCHESTER -- The unspoken language between Shawn Sweeney and Stewart Talbert immediately following the game said it all. Sweeney, the former Lake City girls basketball coach, gave Talbert, the current coach, a big pat on the back and a look that said, "We were so close." Lake City was edged out of the Section 1AA, East Subsection playoffs Monday night by Lewiston-Altura 46-40. The game came down to the wire with the Cardinals holding just a one-point lead in the final minutes. "Shawn, probably more than anyone else, understands what I'm feeling," Talbert said.

If you haven't seen "Economics USA" , played the Stock Market game or seen a varsity boys hockey game, you may not have experienced all Red Wing High School has to offer. One teacher can fulfill all those voids with just one semester. This teacher, known by his upbeat personality and good guy reputation, has many unknowns to his intricate web of education. Mr. George Nemanich has taught for 16 years, 14 of them here. Inspired by his high school economics teacher, he knew going into college that he aspired to be like that teacher.
