Muleskinner – Move to China with the others – we don’t need you obviously. Minotian – yeah, a lot of them are ‘keyboard plinkers’ and if it was not for them, things would be screwed up beyond belief. Not everyone owns acres of land where they can plant things and sit around the Cenex until it is time to go harvest (and whine how bad the crop is) and in the winter go live in the south. The ‘mostly empty’ buildings you cite are dumps and everyone knows it and it would have taken over $1M to make them useable. Don’t you realize that the ‘keyboard plinkers’ you refer to are most likely friends or relatives o yours? Yeah, some career – very few make it to retirement – call the Auditor and ask for the statistics. Average employee tenure is about 6 years because they have to deal with uncaring louts like you every day. Finally, yeah that’s what we need – more lights that folks can run. Maybe spending some money on re-sending ‘native’ North Dakotans back to driver’s ed.

Instead of wasting money on a new building that the county doesn't need, why don't they put up some much needed traffic lights?

Is it possible for Ward County to import 500 workers from China to work at a dollar an hour and reduce the cost of the labor to lower the cost of the building?

They do good work and they work 12 hours a day, seven days a week, the new offices could be occupied much sooner.

Why bother with lazy American workers who only want to work 2 hours in an 8 hour day?

There were 40,000 workers from China in Libya when it collapsed and they all got out of Dodge when Gaddafi was deposed.

Ward County can invest in the labor and pay for it in advance to guarantee the work force to be in place. The Chinese gov would make sure they are there working.

It would be a win win.

This is fantastic. It's nice that they are looking to build a building that is less "concrete" and more beautiful. A good step forward for the city in dealing with critical issues of space and growth.

I know all those people that will be brought in from around the state to fill the beds won't be bringing cars but some people do need to work at the existing courthouse and where will they park now? Build it and the prisoners will come.
