I would like to suggest that very serious consideration be given in regards support to the Cannon Valley Trail. Safety and maintenance equipment is very important to the men and women that tend to the trail. An update in facilities at the Welch Trailhead would be most welcome. I am a regular rider on the Cannon Valley Trail. During 2006-2016 inclusively, by my logs, I have ridden on this trail approximately 251 times. The Twin Cities Bicycle Club, of which I am a member, has a regularly scheduled ride every Thursday May through September.
Many thanks to the Red Wing Fire Department, Pierce County Sheriff's Department and my many concerned neighbors and fellow travelers on Wisconsin Highway 35 on Halloween who stopped to render aid after a nearly very serious accident. I was only shaken up and the occupants of the other car suffered a broken rib. I'm not sure about their car, but my pickup is likely totaled.
WABASHA — On Saturday and Sunday, Nov 11-12, the National Eagle Center will offer complimentary admission to all active duty military personnel and veterans in honor of Veterans Day. All weekend, military veterans can come and meet our nation's symbol up close and in person.
Are you concerned that health care services are being taken away from you in areas where you live? This seems to be a serious problem throughout our region. This is not the fault of doctors, nurses and all the excellent caregivers. You look no further than to Dr John Noseworthy, Dr. Jeffrey Bolton and anyone else in Mayo Health system's leadership, who has control of the pocketbook, to see where the problem exists. It is profits over patients!

For 79 years, the Red Wing Noontime Kiwanis Club has been recognizing 4-H clubs in Goodhue County, selecting and announcing a 4-H "Club of the Year" every October at the Kiwanis 4-H Club Banquet. Kiwanis members choose the 4-H Club of the Year based on each club's submitted application and evaluation of the club's activities throughout the year. The esteemed award is given to a 4-H club that has shown exemplary involvement of all its members, development of its youth leaders and generosity to its community.
Numbers can say a lot. Minnesota families have adopted 12,500 children from the state's foster care system in the past 20 years. With more children in our system in 2016, families adopted more foster children — 868 — than any other year over the last two decades. Adoption is cause for celebration, not only for the newly created families but for all of us in Minnesota. More than anything else in their lives, children need safe, stable, nurturing families. That is what enables them to learn, gain confidence and grow into healthy, productive adults.
Q: What is the law regarding small signs placed alongside a road or berm? There are a lot of small curb signs popping up all over Red Wing and as a driver, I find them distracting and obstructive.
