GREAT START: Three "Great Places" projects are off and running after Gov. Tom Vilsack signed agreements last week with Clinton, Coon Rapids and Sioux City. Those three communities were chosen as pilot projects for the new state program that brings together resources of state government to aid local projects designed to make Iowa communities a great place to live, work and raise a family. Many other projects wait in the wings, hoping for success of these first three.
