Moment of silence today for plane-crash victims

The bells will toll on the University of St. Thomas’ St. Paul campus at 12:05 p.m. today in memory of the eight who died in an airplane crash Friday in northern Minnesota.

While the bells toll, all are asked to observe a moment of silence in memory of Sen. Paul Wellstone, his wife, Sheila Wellstone, his daughter, Marcia Wellstone Markuson; campaign workers Thomas Lapic, William McLaughlin and Mary McEvoy; and pilots Richard Conry and Michael Guess.
