Ahhh, Progress.

Our corner of Iowa has seen a lot of hustle and bustle this summer. The changes to the school building have been amazing. A developer is making it into an apartment building with 32 apartments-one, two and three bedroom units. It is going to have a health club and a daycare center open to the public or so says “the grapevine”. Both sure would be welcome. Winter can be long and, boy, can a person get out of shape by spring. It takes me all summer to get back in shape. So having a place to exercise might be a good thing. All the new windows are installed and it looks great.
Before new windows.
After new windows.
Our interchange is undergoing some more changes, too. Menards has expanded their operations. It is now 960,000 sq. ft. in size.

Luv’s truck stop is building and should be open by the first of the year. It will have a Chester’s Chicken restaurant and a McDonalds. Definitely a good thing that there will be a health center in town.

Conway Trucking opened about the same time Menards did. It is a very busy interchange now. It is becoming a very dangerous interchange with all the trucks coming and going and all the locals gawking at the construction.

We, also, have two restaurants, a Dairy Queen, a motel, RV Park and a very pretty park at our interchange. Needless to say, like so many small towns, our “main street” is moving out to the interstate exchange area.

Check out our little town. 



  1. That's a LOT of construction projects in your town!

  2. Yes, it is. Especially since we are a town of just over 600 people.
