Janet Fredericks: “Untitled (sky view),” mixed media drawing. (Courtesy Town Hall Theater) The works on paper that are collected in this exhibit, with just a few exceptions, are looking down at our land.

CLEVELAND — Former Apple Valley wrestler Seth Gross of South Dakota State won the title at 133 pounds, while former high school teammate Mark Hall finished second at 174 in helping Penn State earn its seventh team title in eight years Saturday at the NCAA championships. The Gophers’ Ethan Lizak finished fourth at 125 pounds, earning All-America honors for the second year in a row. Bo Nickal reversed an early attack from Ohio State’s Myles Martin and spun him on his back for a first-period pin that clinched Penn State’s title. Nickal won his second straight title at 184 pounds and joined Zain Retherford (149) Jason Nolf (157), Vincenzo Joseph (165) as repeat champions for the Nittany Lions, who pulled away to beat the Buckeyes 141.5-133.5.

Minnesota Vikings and execs from the other 31 NFL teams are making their way to Atlanta this morning. The owners have their Spring meeting at the Ritz Carlton in the Buckhead part of town. The action doesn't start until Monday afternoon, but expect the Minnesota Vikings' contingent to be lobbying the fellow owners privately for the 2018 Super Bowl. Team VP Lester Bagley says he and others, including owners Mark and Zygi Wilf, have specific lobbying assignments among the other team owners. No word on who gets Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys - probably the biggest household name among the owners. (Seriously, try to name some others. Rooney, Irsay, Mara - but what do they look like?) Bagley says Zygi Wilf is friendly with Jax Jaguars owner Shahid (Shad) Khan, a Lahore, Pakistan native, now U.S. citizen billionaire (estimated $3.8B, owns Illinois-headquarted Flex-n-Gate auto parts) who also owns England's Fulham FC Football (soccer) League champion. He came to the U.S. at age … [Read more...] about The Vikings have landed in Atlanta to make Super Bowl pitch
