It may not look cool to wear a life jacket but it sure looks better than dead. What a waste.

One drink on the water has the same effect as two or three on the water," says Stocker.
Great! I guess that means go ahead and have three. I like the way this woman thinks.

What a tragic loss for families this weekend.

I believe that iowa law states that anyone 13 or under must be wearing a life jacket. Please keep your kids in life jackets!

@ Levi-- I had heard that it was a 23 yr old from Chicago who had just married someone from Blakesburg,(which is close to the Rathbun area).
Although that's just what i've heard. nothing for sure.
