KARE revives wind turbine story

Joe Fryer, a reporter for Twin Cities NBC affiliate KARE 11, came to St. Olaf at the end of August 2006 to see construction of the college's wind turbine. While he was here he interviewed students, administrators and staff to learn about the college's comprehensive efforts to be a sustainable community. KARE recently rebroadcast the segment as an "Encore Extra."

"The most important thing to know about St. Olaf College is we're a college of the church," St. Olaf president David Anderson told him. "And we do believe that the earth we inhabit has been entrusted to our care and that we're stewards of it."
