Becker County Sheriff Tim Gordon has assigned two deputies to assist families with Internet safety concerns. The decision also includes the aid of Arvig Communications System and a volunteer computer technician employee. Gordon said the decision to help parents was based, in part, on data released by the Minnesota Attorney General's Office about teenagers being victimized by predators using the Internet to "chat" online. According to the state Attorney General's Office: 42 percent of parents do not monitor the content of messages sent and received by the children. 50 percent of t
The Detroit Lakes baseball team had the appropriate answer to a bleak showing against Thief River Falls Friday with a sweep of Mid-State Conference foe Wadena-Deer Creek Tuesday. After the Prowlers showed DL the door twice at Washington Ballpark under some glum weather conditions by the scores of 11-1 and 13-0, the Lakers rebounded with a conference sweep on the road in Wadena with victories of 4-2 and 10-6. "(The guys) played solid ball," said DL head coach Steve Fuhs. "They hit the ball well and made good contact.

Frazee coach Joe Sailer became a prognosticator when he proclaimed after a 17-0 victory at Pelican that the "...next game could be completely different against these guys, because they are a good team."

The Detroit Lakes boys' tennis team took their shot at the Mid-State Conference title by loading up their doubles, with the plan producing two championships and a runner-up duo. But the Lakers fell short of the conference banner, finishing third with 22 points, while Staples-Motley took top honors with 27 and Park Rapids second at 25. The Lakers filled their singles slots with younger players, who played well, but not quite enough to tip the scales in their favor. Seniors Shawn Gode and Sam Neitzke sealed a Mid-State championship in No.
Most areas were covered by the Detroit Lakes softball team in its sweep of visiting Wadena-Deer Creek Tuesday at Snappy Park, with pitching being the key in game one and hitting in game two. The Lakers' offense, in fact, came up clutch in both wins after leaving just a combined six runners on base, compared to a total of 13 RBI by DL hitters. "The girls came up with some clutch hits, and they are getting more and more confident up at the plate," said DL head coach Phil Kirchner.
The Detroit Lakes girls' golf team is making for a great linkster squad, but a terrible waltzing partner. The Lakers have excluded the "one step back" move during the 2006 season, instead opting for the more unconventional "one step forward, one step forward" offering. For the game of golf, the Lakers have been an anomaly with their above-consistent play. The squad hasn't experienced one hiccup in the regular season, which ended Tuesday at the Detroit Country Club.
