10 YEARS AGO (2009): With almost four decades of sports officiating in the books, Ed Baker has called it quits. Baker, 62, sped off the floor of the Fargodome's north court and into the history books as the horn ended Mandan's 57-46 victory over West Fargo in the Class A boys title game. Baker, a life-long Minot resident, was working his 13th state tournament.
20 YEARS AGO (1999): Four players from regional and state champion Minot are among the 15 athletes honored on the All-West Region basketball team. Earning all-region status for the Magicians were Jeff Brandt, Mark Olson, Kent Bloms and Steve Grabowski.
