Doug Wolter: Much is at stake in conference talks
There are so many issues involved in the ongoing Southwest Conference/South Central Conference merger discussions that it almost boggles the mind. Travel issues. Enrollment issues. Rivalry issues. Configuration issues. One superconference? An east and west division? And so on. Even...

Doug Wolter: MLA's football cup is running over
Imagine the football team of your dreams. How would it perform? If you’re the kind of fan who dreams of pure, unadulterated dominance, it might perform like the Mountain Lake Area Wolverines. Five games into the 2013 high school football season, the Wolverines are pummeling their...

Doug Wolter: The best find a way to win in volleyball
It’s still early, as the cliché goes, but in assessing the area high school volleyball field the way things set up now, it’s safe to say that some of the best teams in 2012 are some of the best teams in 2013. Every year, good players graduate. And coaches remind us about how...

Doug Wolter: It's very early; area teams need the proper perspective
The high school football season has barely begun. So it’s too early to get overconfident. And too early to get demoralized, too. A rational perspective is what coaching staffs need to be drilling into their players these days. And nowhere are the extremes more evident than they...

Doug Wolter: With Timberwolves, skepticism comes with the territory
If only the Minnesota Timberwolves had had a few more competitive years in the historical record, they might have more die-hard fans today. As it is, I suspect many Wolves fans see themselves more as detached critics than invested fanatics.

Doug Wolter: It's time to appreciate Joe Mauer
By the time his career is over, Joe Mauer might very possibly be regarded as the greatest Minnesota Twin of all time. Isn't it time we learned to appreciate him? Mauer is no Kirby Puckett. Twins fans don't love him that way. It seems, in fact, that although the All-Star Twins catcher...

Doug Wolter: Sometimes you can go home again
Everyday life has a tendency to numb the senses. There are significant moments all around us if only we'd take the time to look, but we miss them because we are either too tired, too distracted, or too much in a hurry to care. But once in a while we all get in touch with our sentimental...

Doug Wolter: In Luverne, winning at tennis is cool
In some high schools, it's not cool to be on the tennis team. This is not the case in Luverne, and if it ever were, head boys tennis coach Greg Antoine is having none of it. "I know the baseball players drive by the tennis courts and yell and scream, but they haven't been to six...
