Voters will head to the polls for a primary election Tuesday morning. We'll get a clearer picture of the race for three seats on the Sioux City city council. Polls open at seven AM and close at eight PM. On the ballot: Jim France, Dan Moore, Pete Groetken, Maria Rundquist, incumbent Keith Radig, Doug Batcheller, Chris Baltushis, and Thomas Venesky. The primary will narrow the candidates from eight, to six for the November 6th general election.
We're getting our first good look at the extent of damage done to Wayne, Nebraska's business park by the EF4 tornado that hit Friday night. The Wayne Greenhouse, Grossenburg Implement, and Pacific Coast Feather were destroyed. Some of the businesses don't even know where to begin to clean up, but Grossenburg is on the fast track. They've drawn up plans for a new building they hope to have open in four months. People whose jobs were knocked out by the tornado, can learn about employment services at a meeting Tuesday morning at ten in the Wayne City Auditorium.

The guard is bringing back workers because of an interpretation of a law called the "Pay Our Military Act."
