And topping the list once again, South Dakota. Yes, the Rushmore State is making headlines again in a good way. Students who attend public college or university here reportedly have the least student loan debt.

As we have heard more and more this week about President Biden's student loan plan providing $10,000 in student debt cancellation for millions of Americans, and up to $10,000 more for those with the greatest financial need along with measures to lower the burden of repayment for their remaining federal student debt, South Dakota has the lowest average loan balance per borrower at $28,218.

How does that compare with states around us?

12 Businesses That Would Do Great in Sioux Falls' Abandoned Gordmans Building

For thirty years the people of Sioux Falls saw the sign for Gordmans off-price department store across the parking lot from the Empire Mall.

We were wondering what people in Sioux Falls would like to see take over the space. Some folks wanted their Gordmans back. It was a great place to find deals on clothing. But, all the Gordmans are gone, so that's a no-go.

And since we've gotten our Chick Fil A and Chipotle, the city is primed for another thing to line up for.
