Yes, let's keep our historical collection right along the river so it can be destroyed by nature. (sarcasm, for those of you not sure how I stand on things;-)

You have to know when you're not wanted anymore. Must be the time. Time to move to new and better places.

The Ward County Historical Society needs to have a fund raiser to raise some cash and forget about the fair board.

The Ward County Historical Society does not need the NDSF.

If the fair board wants the buildings off of the fairgrounds, they can do it themselves if they want them gone so bad. The fair board can find a location where the buildings can be placed. All at the expense of the NDSF.

Next thing you know, the fair board will ask the Norsk Hostefest to find a new venue.

Our original All Seasons Arena was voted down. Hostefest was the drive for the building. Since then some $14+ million has been given by Minot and Ward County to the State Fair--much directly benefiting Hostefest, a private business. Don't let them do it. It smells like lutefisk to me.

Move it out with the air museum it won't flood there.
