District 2155's school board paved the way for a new school Monday night by approving a contract with Kraus-Anderson for $1,276,521 at Monday's board meeting. Under the agreement, the general contracting company will hire all sub-contractors for the job of replacing the senior high-middle school building which was destroyed in the June 17 tornado. The district has no official settlement with their insurance carrier, the Riverport Insurance Group, but negotiations are in progress.

The return of Brett Favre is supposed to have Minnesota fans frothing at the mouth but the Mississippi Marvel has not played enough football this year to regain his 2009 form. Let's give Mr. Fantastic until January to have his team looking like a Super Bowl contender. The Twins may not have the American League Central Division crown in their pocket but they sure have their rivals from the Windy City worried. The Chicago White Sox had a 3 1/2 game lead on the Twins at the All-Star break in July. They went into the break riding an impressive eight-game winning streak.
