Dangerous SR bridge to be replaced (03/15/04)
The 125th Avenue bridge southwest of Sioux Rapids will be coming out to be replaced with a culvert in the near future.

Diversity Week in Storm Lake (03/15/04)
It's expensive being an Indian," says Zack Morris with a feigned sigh. His headdress cost a small fortune, with its deer fur strands melded with hundreds of hand-colored porcupine quills. The bald eagle feathers full of religious significance took months on a waiting list for a national depository to legally obtain - after the humbling experience of having to "prove" he was a genuine Native American...
Ag taxing down, but homes up sharply (03/15/04)
Trying to find an easy way to explain how Iowans are taxed can seem like trying to catch smoke. Thanks in large part to the state legislature, which tries to make everything fair - or at least as complicated as possible. You may have seen a decrease in your withholding tax, but things have a way of catching up with you whether you pay the IRS, the governor or the county board...

Guest Opinion (03/15/04)
What about the former Wal-Mart building? I think the new State Park project is a good project, it has a lot of vision- a lot of future. I understand the idea is to attract visitors to Storm Lake, to spend their money within our stores, to spend nights in our motels, to eat at our restaurants and to enjoy our lake...
