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.

As Jefferson Elementary School prepares to close, alumni remember with fondness their grade-school days. "I can understand why Jefferson's closing, but I feel bad because it was a wonderful school," said Anna Smith who taught first-grade for 31 years at Jefferson Elementary before retiring in 1985. "I taught in several schools, but this was the finest," she said, smiling. Jefferson Elementary opened in 1917 after the eight-room building was completed for a mere $35,000. The original schoolhouse was located on West Third Street and was built in 1869.
