Becker Power Plant Back In Service After Two Year Shutdown

Facebook Twitter

10/22/2013 - 9:40 AM

BECKER, Minn. (AP) - Minneapolis-based Xcel Energy says the Sherco 3 power plant is back in service after damage was repaired from a turbine failure nearly two years ago.

The failure happened Nov. 19, 2011, as the 884-megawatt coal-fired plant near Becker was being returned to service following a maintenance outage. The malfunction caused extensive damage to the unit's steam turbine and generator.

Experts found cracking in one row of turbine blades caused by stress erosion. The company says the problem was a function of the original design.

Repair costs are estimated at more than $200 million. Insurance is expected to cover most of the costs.

Sherco 3 is owned jointly by Xcel Energy and the Southern Minnesota Municipal Power Agency, which provides electricity to 18 municipally-owned utilities.

Farmers Show Frustration With Troubles Settling Farm Bill

Facebook Twitter

10/22/2013 - 11:40 AM

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - Washington's inability to settle on a farm bill is frustrating farmers in Minnesota.

New enrollment in conservation programs has been halted, and farmers worry about disruptions in farm prices next year if no bill is passed.

Melrose dairy farmer Dennis Ritter tells the St. Cloud Times the unsettled status is making it tough for him and other producers to plan.

The House and Senate have passed different farm bills. A House-Senate conference committee is set to meet later this month to begin reconciling them.

University of Minnesota Extension educator Dan Martens says this is the time when many farmers are planning for next season with tasks such as negotiating rents for land. But Martens says the lack of a farm bill makes it tough to know what's in store.

St.John's Abbey Arboretum To Welcome In Bow Hunters

Facebook Twitter

10/21/2013 - 9:35 AM

COLLEGEVILLE, Minn. (AP) - St. John's Abbey Arboretum is soon allowing in bow hunters in an effort to control the deer population.

According to the St. Cloud Times, 105 hunters will be out from Oct. 26 through Dec. 31 or until 55 deer are killed. It's the 12th since hunting was allowed in the 1990s. It'll be the first archery hunt.

Officials hope to reduce the population to nine per acre, instead of 15 per acre. They hope it will allow young trees and other plants the deer have been eating to flourish. They also hope for a drop in car-deer crashes on the St. John's University entrance road.

The rules require hunting parties to shoot three antlerless deer before taking a buck. The abbey will keep track of those numbers.
