Question of the Day
A giant crater opened alongside the road when the line collapsed Friday morning.
The collapse happened at the intersection of Johnson Parkway and Phalen (FAY’-luhn) Boulevard. The sinkhole is an estimated 25 feet across and 25 feet deep.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/1j4LWRuhttp://bit.ly/1j4LWRu ) reports the busy intersection will be shut down for several days. The site is just north of the Hmong Village shopping plaza, a popular weekend destination.
No one was hurt during the collapse. The sewer line is operated by Metropolitan Council Environmental Services.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minnesota nurse is accused of stealing powerful painkillers from patients and sneaking in saline solution to cover up her crimes.
Thirty-two-year-old Cali Arndt of Cottage Grove was charged in federal court with stealing morphine, fentanyl and other narcotics for several months in 2012 while working at Fairview Southdale Hospital in Edina.
The Minnesota Board of Nursing says Arndt resigned from Southdale on Oct. 30, 2012, the day after an investigation into the thefts began. The board suspended her license a few months later.
According to the board’s consent order, Arndt said she had been treating her chronic back pain with Percocet and developed an addiction.
A Southdale Hospital spokeswoman would not say how many patients may have been affected.
