In January, doctors said Daniel David Yennie would probably never walk or talk again. But on Friday morning, the 21-year-old walked to the front of a courtroom in Goodhue County District Court just before his attacker, Jonathan Lee Closner, was sentenced to 212 months in prison. Yennie stood before Judge Larry Clark as his sister Nicole Yennie-Drake read a victim impact statement on his behalf.
The 2013 Red Wing Collectors Society commemorative was unveiled Thursday morning.

Growing up in Red Wing, Phil Duff knew the city's streets well. The son of former Republican Eagle owner and Publisher Philip Sheridan Duff Jr., Duff spent a portion of his childhood delivering papers throughout his family's neighborhood, located just south of the Red Wing Golf Course. The hardest part, Duff remembers, was trekking up and down West Avenue on his way to and from the newspaper's downtown office. "I had to ride my bike over the big hill down to the newspaper," he said. "Riding back over that big hill was always a pain in the neck."
