MidAmerican Energy Announces Wind Project

   DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - MidAmerican Energy officials say they have contracted with an Iowa wind turbine blade factory to make all the blades for 448 wind turbines the company is installing in Iowa.
      Adam Wright, vice president of wind generation for MidAmerican says about 500 workers at the Siemens Energy plant in Fort Madison will keep busy for at least the next 10 months making turbine blades for the wind expansion project.
     The CEO of Siemens Energy's wind division Mark Albenze says the MidAmerican order is the largest onshore wind turbine order in the world. It will help secure the jobs at Fort Madison and in a Hutchinson, Kan., plant where the wind turbines are made.
     The Iowa Utilities Board in August approved MidAmerican's $1.9 billion wind expansion project.

     She says the jackpot may be increased one more time on Tuesday morning in advance of the evening drawing.
     She says it's expected that between 65 and 75 percent of the 259 million possible number combinations will be in play when the numbers are drawn.
