This morning at 7:46 central time, bells rang at the Minnesota State Capitol to mark the one year anniversary of the moment the first plane struck the north tower of the World Trade Center. The bell ringing was part of an event attended by several hundred people which featured remarks by Governor and Mrs. Ventura. Minnesota Public Radio's Laura McCallum was at the event and she joins us now from the Capitol. At Memorial Park in Moorhead, people gathered this morning to hear the reading of the names of all the people killed in the September 11 attacks. Bob Reha was there, and he's on the line now. Later today, Minnesota's law enforcement organizations are holding an event at the metrodome called "Remember the Heros." Speakers will address the crowd before the Twins game, which begins at 12:05. Minnesota Public Radio's William Wilcoxen is at the Dome right now.
