An official from Mid-County Cooperative says they will rebuild after a fire destroyed the co-op's bag products warehouse in Shawano early this morning and threatened other buildings at the company's Seward St. location.

President and CEO Pat Vogel said the warehouse, which was formerly the bag warehouse for Shawano Equity Co-op before the two co-ops merged this year, is a total loss. He estimated the value of the building and contents to be at least $200,000.

Leader Sports Editor

CLINTONVILLE The Clintonville baseball team had its 2000 season come to an end Wednesday afternoon with a regional final loss to Seymour 5-4. Late-inning heroics would not save the day for Clintonville as they failed to come through in the clutch at the plate.

Trailing 5-4 in the top of the seventh inning, the Truckers had men on first and third and could not score to at least tie the game.

"Not getting the clutch hitting really hurt us today," said Clintonville Head Coach Bill Kinziger.
