Officials in several Great Plains cities say they're sensing an economic upturn.

Sioux Falls, S.D., Mayor Mike Huether points to voters' approval of a $115 million events center as proof that residents are comfortable the city's "fiscal house" is in good shape.

Heuther says that "it's all about confidence."

A report written for Texas Tech University indicates the region is positioned for continued prosperity through energy and agriculture sectors, as well as the Internet.

A sporting facility is also the hallmark of confidence in Lincoln, Neb., while a downtown convention center is being built in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The Bismarck, N.D., City Commission last month approved a $25 million expansion to the city's exhibit hall. Museums have been expanded in downtown Tulsa, Okla.
