More than 1,400 jobs created by construction of a facility to train students for future careers Thursday, Oct. 27, Governor Mark Dayton attended the ground- breaking of a new Integrated Sci- ence and Engineering Laboratory Facility building on the St. Cloud State University campus. The new building was funded as a part of the 2011 bonding bill. Construc- tion of a state of the art science and engineering building will create more than 1,400 jobs and its pres- ence on campus will ensure that St. Cloud State students are well- prepared for the jobs of the future for decades to come. The 100,000 square-foot research and teaching facility will house classrooms and labs which are slated to serve high-level sci- ence, technology, engineering, mathematics, medical technology, and radiology classes. It is esti- mated that 11 percent of the new jobs created in Minnesota by 2019 will be in the science and tech- nology sectors. This new facility will help accommodate a 20-per- cent increase in enrollment in Sci- ence and Engineering majors at St. Cloud State. Additionally, the research done in this new facility can be used to support Minnesota companies and spur further inno- vations. The new building is slated to open in the fall of 2013. Weather for Weather column: Our weather for Halloween this year was a far cry from what the weather was during the Halloween Blizzard of 1991. Temperatures in the area were in the 50s. We did start offthe morning with some "scary" look- ing fog, but that soon burned off and we enjoyed lots of sunshine. Morning lows on Monday, Oct. 31, were in the 20s and lower 30s. Ben- son was the cool spot around the state with a start of just 21 degrees. That was just eight degrees above the record low for that date for Benson set back in 1993. Tempera- tures for the trick-or-treaters were very pleasant, as they were still in the 40s and 50s. There wasn't the need of Superman costumes over a snowmobile suit this year, thankfully! Don't forget this week is the weekend that Daylight Saving Time ends and we turn our clocks back one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday morning. By this time next week we will have the sun rising at around 7 a.m., but it will be set- ting at about 5 p.m. We will gain an hour of sleep. I know that I can use it, how about you? Have a great rest of the week and enjoy that leftover Halloween candy! Weather fact: Did you know that lightning is five times hotter then the surface of the sun. Mark Anthony Chief Meteorologist, KSAX-TV November's first week Weather history: On this date (Oct. 31) in 1978, record high tem- peratures were experienced in some parts of the state as temper- atures rose into the 70s. Alexan- dria, for example, hit a record high of 72 degrees. MN AT A GLANCE: Moorhead...Low...30 High...44 Duluth....Low 32 High...46 Alexandria...Low...32 High...45 Twin Cities...
