This one's called "Killing Hitler," by Roger Moorhouse (Bantam, $25). I've read tons of Hitleriana, but I must say Moorhouse has convinced me that I've still missed a great deal. Everyone's heard about the famous plot to kill Hitler during his trip to the Eastern Front, led by Claus von Stauffenberg.
WILLMAR -- Last week the last client was discharged from the adult mental health treatment facility on the campus of the former Willmar Regional Treatment Center, ending a nearly 100 year history in this community.

MONTICELLO, Minn. -- Months of planning at the Monticello nuclear plant will be put into practice when spent nuclear fuel is moved from an indoor pool to new above-ground storage. The Prairie Island nuclear plant in Red Wing already uses outdoor dry-cask storage. The Monticello casks will go into concrete storage modules. The storage area is surrounded by two chain-link fences and monitored by cameras and other security devices. Moving the spent fuel will allow Xcel Energy to continue operating the plant for another 30 years, project manager Mark McKeown said.

At least one event is planned in each of Minnesota's 87 counties.
