For many folks greeting Iowa
for the first time along Highway20, Sioux City provides their first glimpse
of the Hawkeye State. And that’s not necessarily a good thing. The
city’s local (read: non-canned) country station goes by the call
numbers KSUX, for goodness sake. By night, the city burns with the otherworldly
glow of “Riverboat” gambling while old roadside motels slowly
decay. By morning you might drop by the Corey Motel with its little stone
block cabins, each shaded by an individual tree. Nearby a massive grain
complex fills a line of trains just passing through.
