What's making news in Minneapolis:

House panel vote leaves VIkings stadium deal in peril: The proposed public subsidy package for a new Minnesota Vikings stadium was decisively rejected by a House panel late Monday night, leaving the team and stadium supporters visibly stunned. In an early sign that the project faced trouble, Rep. Joyce Peppin's 15-member House Government Operations and Elections Committee blocked an attempt to void a Minneapolis city charter provision that requires citizens to vote on spending city money for a new sports facilities.

Fate of Minnesota schools' integration aid hangs in limbo: A task force's recommendations that could determine how Minnesota schools spend $108 million in integration aid is apparently stalled this session. That means schools will continue to spend the money as they have. Under the current formula, Minneapolis gets $480 per pupil, St. Paul gets $445 and Duluth gets $206. But some other districts with high populations of minority groups, such as Columbia Heights or Worthington, get far less. (Kim McGuire)

Confidence? Check. Champion? Check: Minneapolis South High School senior Donald Hooker Jr. backed his confidence with performance, bringing home a championship in the tournament's second-toughest individual division, the only player among 280 competitors in that division to win every game.

Philanthropy beat: Skyway campaign focuses on learning: Shoppers in the Minneapolis skyways typically see advertisements for fashion and perfumes. But this month, they'll run into eye-catching ads spotlighting something quite different -- Minnesota's student achievement gap. (Jean Hopfensperger)
