Goodhue County commissioners rejected the city of Red Wing's request for an extension on tax-increment financing districts Tuesday. The city sought support for proposed state legislation to extend the decertification of three TIF districts two in downtown and another for the site of Food Service Specialties. The city still will pursue the legislation, but will do so without the County Board's backing. Red Wing School District previously supported a similar resolution. Commissioners Roseanne Grosso and Richard Samuelson supported the request.
Kristy Hanisch earned her first medalist honors of the season, firing a 41 Tuesday at Mississippi National to lead the Red Wing girls golf team over Lake City in a nonconference meet.

Red Wing was without senior Angie Hartmann, who will return next week from spring break.
To The Editor: A strong future for Greater Minnesota will be in jeopardy if budget proposals offered by the governor and Senate are passed.

SHAKOPEE, Minn. --The Red Wing girls golf team won a Missota Conference meet Monday at Stonebrooke Golf Course in Shakopee, Minn. The Wingers shot 172 to take home the crown.

CANNON FALLS -- It's hard to keep the Edgewood Supper Club closed. Yet it's proven just as difficult for recent owners to hold onto the popular restaurant that has entertained diners on Highway 52 for the past half century. Its most recent incarnation was short lived after Dick Jacobson, who purchased the restaurant in late 2001, closed the restaurant and motel a year later.
To The Editor: I ask everybody in Minnesota to join me in writing their legislators and demand this session be done by the May 19 deadline. We cannot afford a special session. We all realize the budget decisions are very difficult, but they will be no easier in a special session.
