Vikings to turn lights off at night

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings are turning off the lights at the team's new practice facility in Eagan after neighbors complained about the glow. 

Spokesman Jeff Anderson says the NFL team will turn off the lights between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. The shut-off time will be moved to about midnight when the team hosts night events such as high school games. 

The team moved into the new building in March. The building's north side is nearly 100 feet high and is lit up with the team's Norseman logo and the words ''Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center - Home of the Minnesota Vikings.'' 

Mendota Heights residents complained about the lights last month. Anderson says the team is ''listening to the community.'' 

The team expects the change to occur this weekend.
