School board members have agreed to award a single contract to one general contractor. They originally planned to award 19 different contracts, but 5 weren't bid on, and the school board said the rest were too high. The board says it plans to award the contract to a local builder Monday. The County Board of Supervisors will then have to release funding for the project. The new high school is slated for completion in time for the start of classes in the Fall of 2002.

Officials from B-W-X Technologies say no one was exposed to radiation after a slow leak was discovered at one of the company's nuclear facilities in Campbell County.
The leak was discovered two weeks ago... near a containment pool at the Lynchburg Technology Center.
The pool holds irradiated hardware and "spent fuel" from commercial nuclear reactors.
A B-W-X spokesman says the leak was patched. A test of groundwater around the site showed no contamination.
