A proposed petition seeking the recall of Sen. Steve Murphy, DFL-Red Wing, will not be forwarded to the clerk of the appellate courts after the Secretary of State's office determined it did not meet legal requirements. Secretary of State Mary Kiffmeyer informed the Lake City group in a letter sent to three of its members.
Red Wing's Angie Hartmann has achieved a great deal of success on the golf course, helping the Wingers win back to back Class AA state titles. Now, Hartmann has entered her senior season and she's not about to settle for less than the best. Hartmann led the Wingers to another Red Wing Invitational victory Tuesday as the team carded 345. Rochester Mayo finished second with 347, while Fairmont was third (351) and Burnsville placed fourth with 352. Hartmann had the low score for the No. 1 ranked Wingers, firing 82 (42-40) despite having trouble with her putter.
Minnesota State College-Southeast Technical, with campuses at Red Wing and Winona, announced last month that it received accreditation for students to take classes -- and get their complete associate degree programs -- online. It's a great example of how far distance learning has progressed since the advent of the Internet.

MAPLEWOOD, Minn. -- Red Wing had very little trouble walking away from the Hill-Murray Invitational with the title Monday afternoon. The Wingers easily won the meet with a team score of 341. Fourteen teams played in the tournament at Hillcrest Country Club. Red Wing's Angie Hartmann was the meet's medalist with an 82. Teammate Britta Hendrickson took second with an 84. Alyssa Halvorson was fourth with an 86, Katie Mettling took fifth with an 89 and Kristy Hanisch placed sixth with a 91.
ST. PAUL -- No one left the Capitol at 2 a.m. today totally happy with a nuclear storage waste compromise, but most involved accepted the outcome. Senators voted 42-24 at 1:50 a.m. to allow more waste storage at Prairie Island power plant as well as a similar Xcel Energy-owned one near Monticello. Some liberal Democrats joined conservative Republicans in opposing the measure. "I would call it a fair compromise," said Michael Noble of Minnesotans for an Energy-Efficient Economy. "We think it is a good starting point," added Xcel's Scott Wilensky.

Concerned Citizens of Senate District 28 -- read: citizens opposed to nuclear power -- may not agree with Sen. Steve Murphy's drive to keep the Prairie Island nuclear plant operating through the end of its current license, and maybe 20 years additional. But that is insufficient reason to kick Murphy out of office. The group filed a petition Monday with the complaint that Murphy has a conflict of interest. Murphy is an employee of Xcel Energy's steam plant in Red Wing.
