The Superdome, heavily damaged when Hurricane Katrina hit Aug. 29, can be repaired and ready to reopen for major football events by Nov. 1, a consultant's report says. Repair costs are estimated at about $140 million and most of that is expected to be covered by the state's insurance and by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The renovation will include extensive improvements to the building that can be done at the time at a lower cost.

Running the ball again and again with its punishing wishbone attack, Westchester High rallied with two fourth-quarter touchdowns Wednesday night to upset top-seeded Granada Hills, 26-21, in a City Championship quarterfinal game at Granada Hills.
