First Funerals for Tornado Victims

ENTERPRISE, Ala. (AP) - The school superintendent in Enterprise, Alabama, says he's doing all he can to get high school students back in class as soon as possible.

Schools in Enterprise will be closed all this week, as the town cleans up from last week's killer tornado and mourns those who were lost.

Eight students died when a twister slammed into Enterprise High
School. The first funerals will be held Monday.

While some have questioned why school officials didn't send students home early on Thursday when they learned of the tornado warnings, people at a church service Sunday applauded and hugged Superintendent Jim Reese.
