Gary, sadly, there are probably a lot of small towns in Iowa that aren't what they used to be. The town I graduated from had 3 grocery stores, 3 bars, a hatchery, a meat locker and a furniture store along with an Allis Chalmers dealer. Plus we had 4 gas stations and a funeral parlor and a bank. Today, there is one bar and one gas station and a bank. The rest have all folded there tents and left town. Hauxfan!
