The Ellsworth High School baseball team made a playoff run all the way to the Division 2 state finals last season. This spring the Panthers are back hoping to go a step further. The Panthers finished state runner-ups to Portage in an 8-3 loss at Fox Cities Stadium in 2012. Head Coach Steve Block believes EHS will benefit from previous experience to their ultimate goal. Last spring was Ellsworth's first-ever appearance at state in school history. "For those players who were at state last season, having that experience is step they don't have to take this year," Block said.

BEMIDJI -- A 35-year-old Bemidji man was arrested after apparently assaulting two people near the Mississippi river trail bridge. The victims told Bemidji police they were walking along the trail when a man stood on the bridge holding his arms out, blocking them from going by. The man allegedly told the victims they needed to pay "the street tax" and when they refused, one was hit in the face and the other was grabbed as they tried to run to get help.

MADISON - Danny O'Brien, who followed the same road as Russell Wilson in becoming a quarterback at Wisconsin a year ago, has reportedly left the program. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel said O'Brien saw the writing on the wall, after four other quarterbacks moved ahead of him on the depth chart. O'Brien transferred from Maryland in 2012 with two years of eligibility left. But unlike Wilson, he failed to impress. Curt Phillips finished the spring practices as the Number-One quarterback, with Joel Stave in the second spot.
