Water works

The Dorothy Olson Aquatics Center on 22nd Street Southwest in Willmar was closed but there was a "wading pool" Sunday afternoon out front as the retention pond behind Bill Taunton Stadium overflowed following a three-inch rainfall overnight Sunday. Willmar and Bird Island will co-host the 2010 Minnesota Amateur Baseball Tournament. The 2009 tourney starts Thursday in Gaylord and Arlington. Tribune photo by Rand Middleton
