DL News Staff
The experienced gained by a very young Detroit Lakes boys' tennis team last year was invaluable, but it's an experience the Lakers really don't want to repeat. Although DL finished with a respectable record near .500, the Lakers didn't defeat a section opponent, and felt some bumps along the way through the 2005 season. But what doesn't kill you only helps you.
The Detroit Lakes Youth Wrestling Club and Mat Rat team competed in several tournaments over the month of March, including events in Perham, DL, Frazee, Bertha, Deer River and Fargo.

Second place finishers included Zach Peterson, Tanner Hackmann, Tyler Hackmann, Jordan Macknar, Nathan Francis, James Huwe, Casey Fonder, Josh Weber and Ben Gailfus. DL hosted a tournament March 11, with the first and second place finishers advancing to the regional tournament in Cass Lake March 25.
The crystal ball has reared its ugly head already for the Minnesota Twins. The boxscore which resulted in the Twins' season opening loss in Toronto Tuesday could be repeated many, many times in the next 161 games. Five hits, no walks and one error resulted in a 5-3 loss to the rebuilt Blue Jays. Really, take who Minnesota played out of the equation. The punchless Twins have proven that the 2005 season was not just a one-year thing. This team is offense-less. Of the five hits the Twins gained Tuesday, three of them came off the bat of lead-off hitter Shannon Stewart.

House Republicans released their public works funding proposal Tuesday, suggesting the state borrow $949 million for projects ranging from college building renovations to constructing nature trails. The proposal is much closer to one passed last month by the Senate than one pushed by GOP Gov. Tim Pawlenty. The Senate bill would borrow $990 million, while the governor wants to borrow $811 million. The bill - funded by the state selling bonds - is the main reason legislators are in St. Paul this year.
