By Mitchell B. Pearlstein The "Minneapolis Star Tribune" recently had another superb editorial in its series of pieces on crime, disorder and vulgarity in Minneapolis. Just inches away, Lori Sturdevant's column discussed an ad placed in the paper by Growth & Justice, a very good "progressive" think tank, which contended that Minnesota is undertaxed, and that if income taxes were raised we'd all be better off. Among those who read the two pieces, many surely concluded that if taxes were raised, Minneapolis streets indeed would grow safer and more civil.

Regular season in the Morris 18-U Girls Fast-Pitch Softball League wrapped up last week with three games. League playoffs began Tuesday. Results were not available when this edition of the Sun Tribune went to press. In the regular-season final week, Wheaton could not make it and forfeited three games. Schedules were rearranged so that the remaining three teams each would have two games. In the first game of the night, Benson-Hancock overtook Morris by a score of 12-6.
The Elementary Softball League playoffs kicked off last week, and Engebretson and Dairy Queen will play a winners bracket game today on the South field, and Ag Country and Thompson Insulation will play a consolation game on the North field. Both games start at 6 p.m. The playoffs began with a back and forth battle between Thompson Insulation and Bank of the West. In the fifth inning Thompson put up five runs to go up by four.
The Morris Eagles amateur baseball team probably is happy that, unlike its big-league counterparts, there's no All-Star Game break in their schedule. The Eagles will prefer to just continue playing like all-stars. The Eagles defeated the Appleton Aces 7-4 on July 7 at Chizek Field, running their winning streak to six games. The Eagles have won 10 of their last 12 and improved to 8-3 in the Land O' Ducks League and 13-9 overall. The Eagles finish the season on the road at Chokio at 8 p.m. today, against Dumont at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Wheaton, and at Ortonville at 2 p.m.
