Monty Johnson saw the stars align over Wadena this summer. M State-Wadena's dean of students had been looking at storm clouds out his window all day June 17 and had been part of the decision to delay the Summer of Fun parade that evening when the sirens went off in Wadena. Like many others, Johnson headed for the safety of the basement in his home on Seventh Street -- one block west of the campus. When Johnson emerged from his basement shortly after 5 p.m., he found he was standing at Ground Zero.
