The police department in West Point, Iowa is giving children a pat on the back for practicing good safety habits.

There appears to be some interest in a large piece of real estate in Burlington.

The city spent about $5-million to tear down homes and relocate residents from a roughly 28-acre site known locally as “The Manor.” 

It is located near the intersection of Highway 34 and Highway 61.

The idea behind the project was commercial development, but a potential developer from Minnesota backed away.

The result is that the property has sat vacant for about four years.
