Northeast Iowa town experiences major baby-boom

The AP reports: a tiny NE Iowa town is experiencing a baby boom. It seems residents of Saint Lucas are doing their part to boost the tiny northeastern Iowa town’s population. Television station KCRG reported that the town of about 150 is experiencing a baby boom. Resident Courtney Schott said 19 babies were born to town residents from August 2018 to October 2019, and several families have announced that they’re expecting again. The boom follows about 10 years of more young families settling in the Fayette County community. Resident Eric Dietzenbach says the town has “completely changed from, you know, a bunch of retired people a bunch of young families.”
