ZUMBROTA -- The Zumbrota-Mazeppa boys basketball team has been waiting for 2003. And so have the communities of Zumbrota and Mazeppa. The 2003 graduating class has been in the spotlight for some time. And this was their year. The Cougars advanced to the state tournament for the first time in school history and finished third in Class 2A. Although the Cougars feature a balanced attack, no player stuck out more than senior Tyler McAthie.
More than one reader has asked how to track down an address for someone serving overseas in the Armed Forces. The best way is to contact the individual's family, the National Guard advises. And even then, the best chance of communicating is via e-mail. The National Guard is directing most people who want to send general letters of support to Operation Dear Abby on the Web.

To The Editor: More and more of our troops are killed or captured in Iraq as this exiguous alliance of the "willing" continues this illegal incursion. While America is off "enforcing" U.N. Resolution 1441, it seems a double standard to allow Israel to maintain its illegal occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, a clear violation of U.N. Resolutions 1402 and 1403. I hear our administration speak of the 12 years Saddam Hussein's regime has been in defiance, but what does it speak of the 30 years of Israeli defiance? Nothing.
Zumbrota-Mazeppa senior Tyler McAthie has been selected to the Associated Press All-State second team. McAthie owns Z-M school records in almos every statistical category. He has been a member of the Hiawatha Valley League All-Conference team for the last four seasons. Red Wing junior Patrick Herzog received an honorable mention. Herzog was the Wingers' top scorer this season, despite playing much of the year with a broken bone in his right foot. Zumbrota-Mazeppa senior Josh Hinsch also received an honorable mention.
Tuesday was anything but typical for Jerry Rosenow, narcotics investigator with the Red Wing Police Department. Instead of jeans and a T-shirt, he was decked out in a suit and tie. And instead of associating with people who use and sell drugs, or those who can put him in contact with those who do, Rosenow spent time with senior citizens who he hopes can help police reduce drug use in Red Wing simply by reporting what they see and hear. "You are the eyes and ears of Red Wing," Rosenow told about 20 seniors at the Elderberry Cafe.
