Email

ST. PAUL -- Lt. Gov. Yvonne Prettner Solon smiled all 12,800 feet down from an Army airplane today, becoming the first state executive to parachute onto the Capitol mall.

"It is a magnificent view," she said after her feet were firmly planted on the ground.

The 66-year-old Duluth woman continued her smiling as she was peppered with questions, saying that she would jump from an airplane again "now that I know what it is like."
