FILE - In this Friday, Aug. 8, 2014 file photo, smoke, dust and debris rise over Gaza City after an Israeli strike. The Palestinian economy is expected to contract for the first time in seven years in 2014, shrinking by 4 percent, the result of the recent Gaza war, continued Israeli and Egyptian restrictions on Palestinian trade and a drop in foreign aid, the World Bank said Tuesday. The downturn is expected to be sharpest in war-battered Gaza, with a projected drop of 15 percent, the bank said. (AP Photo/Hatem Moussa, File)

  • Go back in time to an oasis named Okoboji

    "I remember doing this when I was a kid," Linda Clarksean said with a laugh as she walked up the steep ramp to the 84-year-old Tipsy House holding the hands of her 5- and 6-year-old grandsons.

    No matter how hard we try to prove otherwise, Iowa still seems to have the reputation of the typical Midwestern farm state, known for miles of corn- and soybean-lined gravel roads. It's not surprising, then, that the stigma carries over into most movie, book and any other media portrayals we should be lucky enough to get. Cityview Online, Wed, Sep 17 2014 @ 07:14 AM
