Thirty years ago WCCO’s live broadcast from the Minnesota State Fair with Bill Carlson and Debbie Ely Stories included:
Wayzata shooting
Air Supply concert injury
Minnegasco price increases
Walter Mondale campaigning
Honsa’s Bakery re-opening
along with Bud Kraehling’s weather and Tony Parker’s sports


Tim McNeill: Thank God for Debby Ely!! She has saved some great stuff for people to see.

Greg Baker: I remember it all too well! I had just started 3rd grade at Widsten elementary in Wayzata (now a condo complex). Anyone who knows that area of Wayzata knows that the shooter walked right past the front door of our school. I shudder to think how much worse a situation that could have been. Thank God for small favors!
