Doug Wolter: Above all, be an encourager
I hardly ever read any articles in the Minnesota State High School League Bulletin when it crosses my desk. Bulletin writers are always pounding the same themes -- participation, sportsmanship, responsibility, teamwork -- that kind of stuff. It’s not that I don’t believe in those...

Wolter: Here comes 2017; work hard, for nothing is certain
The Minnesota State High School League, in its indisputable wisdom, has decreed that the state tournament experience is too awesome to be offered only to a select few. This is why those bygone days of single-class state tournaments has become a thing of the past -- remembered only...

Doug Wolter: Dragons, Generals getting noticed for all the right reasons
In the middle of December, it’s late enough to recognize the fast starts -- and too soon to predict what will happen after teams return to action from their Christmas breaks. Today, however, it’s hats-off time to the Adrian Dragons boys basketball team and the Sibley-Ocheyedan...

Doug Wolter: Football battles to stay ahead of injuries
On Saturday while relaxing in a lawn chair at a family reunion, my wife’s cousin Gary and I discussed football. Gary wondered out loud why, when we were younger, NFL players seemed to suffer so few injuries compared to today. We opined that perhaps the change is largely due to the...

Letter: Wilmont baseball created many memories for family
Thank you to Doug Wolter for his article on Wilmont amateur baseball having disbanded this year. For the article, Doug interviewed my son, Sam Baumgartner, who played with Wilmont for 24 years. Both he and Brett followed in their dad, Bob’s, footsteps. Bob was on the team over 30...

Doug Wolter: Trust me, the game has changed
I am suitably excited about the return of major league baseball, and as a lifelong fan I know the lure. Baseball is as regular as the coming of spring and — its disciples remind us — just as unchangeable. That’s not exactly true, of course. Baseball has undergone many important...
