GREENSBURG, Kan. (AP) _ The recovery of Greensburg continues
this week.

Kiowa County Memorial Hospital and the Greensburg School
District both break ground on new projects.

The hospital is building a 15-bed facility. Meanwhile, the
school district is constructing a 130,000-square-foot school.

Both projects are designed to meet the highest level of
certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

They're also expected to provide a boost in morale for
Greensburg.

They're two of the first Greensburg institutions to commit to
rebuilding 18 months after a tornado destroyed most of the town.

The hospital is expected to be open by December 2009.

School officials say their building will be completed by May
2010 with construction on the new school itself expected to start
in mid-November.
