Ridding the Twins stadium of stank

Friday's five most fascinating stories printed on wood pulp: 

County officials were told that there would be no odor problems when they built the Twins stadium next door to a garbage burner that takes in 1,000 tons of dump a day. Just kidding! Now the building is undergoing a $2.3 million remodel, with $500,000 being used to handle odor problems. County commissioners are pissed.

Man suspected of stealing blind woman's laptop arrested 
Metro Transit police arrested the man suspected of stealing a Braille laptop computer from a blind woman on a bus in November. The laptop was valued at $6,500.

A 20-year-old Colorado man surrendered after being indicted on charges of threatening to kill President Obama and blow up the Mall of America in Bloomington. He said he was just joking around. Hilarious! What a knee slapper. 

New additions at zoos usually mean crazy new animals for us to gawk at. Not this time. The Minnesota Zoo is installing an "elaborate" $1 million playground, to get kids "in touch with nature." Isn't that the point of all those animals in cages?
