FORMER WINTHROP MAN GETS STATE OF ADJUDICATION FOR THREATENING DOCTOR

A former rural Winthrop man accused of making a threat against a New Ulm doctor in April 2021 received a stay of adjudication Monday in Brown County District Court. A stay of adjudication allows an individual to avoid jail time and keep their public criminal record clear. Ronal Schoenborn was arrested near the New Ulm Medical Center in April 2023. He was charged with felony threats of violence and misdemeanor disorderly conduct after having signs attached to his vehicle including one that offered a $500 reward for Dr. Randeep Dahmi being brought to him unharmed. Officers found five $100 bills in Schoenborn’s possession. He was fined $500, sentenced to one-year supervised probation and ordered to serve four days in jail, credited with time served. Probation conditions include no contact with the victim, contacting or visiting the victim’s place of employment or be within five blocks of the New Ulm Medical Center.

A summer to remember

Todd Pack played plenty of baseball in his youth, and some of his fondest memories on the diamond were made in Tracy — especially 50 years ago, during the summer of 1972. Pack was one of the premier ballplayers in the region in the 1970s; at the time, he lived in Walnut Grove, and in 1972 had to make the decision to play Legion ball either in Tracy or Lamberton.
