    It was overcast and backlit but I decided to run over and get a few shots of the new construction. Not very good photos but will give you some idea of what is going on. These are all looking at the west side.

    It's been reported that Coach McFarland, conversing at the Council Bluffs outing following signing day, said he expects A-Rob to be the starter this fall.
