He's a doctor, a Navy lieutenant, a triathlete and formerly the star of a reality TV show designed to find him a soul mate. And ladies, he's still single. "The Bachelor" star Lt. Andrew Baldwin hit Duluth on Monday and will be here until tomorrow as part of Navy Week, an event designed to recruit people.

A 29-year-old Duluth man was arrested early Wednesday after calling police with a cell phone from a purse he's accused of stealing. A reporter told Duluth police Sgt. Don Boso that it didn't appear that the suspect arrested by Officer Kristina Schulte early Wednesday has a prior criminal record in Minnesota. "If this is his start, he should end his career now,'' Boso deadpanned. According to police, a 26-year-old woman said the man asked her for a cigarette at Horseshoe Billiards in Lincoln Park/West Duluth about 12:22 a.m. Wednesday.

MONTICELLO, Minn. -- Months of planning at the Monticello nuclear plant will be put into practice when spent nuclear fuel is moved from an indoor pool to new above-ground storage. The Prairie Island nuclear plant in Red Wing already uses outdoor dry-cask storage. The Monticello casks will go into concrete storage modules. The storage area is surrounded by two chain-link fences and monitored by cameras and other security devices. Moving the spent fuel will allow Xcel Energy to continue operating the plant for another 30 years, project manager Mark McKeown said.

ST. PAUL -- Minnesota's 150th birthday has come and gone, but the celebration - and history lesson - lasts all summer. That is the Minnesota Sesquicentennial Commission's message as it touts hundreds of events scheduled around the state in the coming weeks and months to commemorate 150 years of statehood. More than 90 events are scheduled yet this month and another 500 are planned for July, said Jane Leonard, the commission's executive director. At least one event is planned in each of Minnesota's 87 counties.
