August 9, 2013

It’s time to put aside the emotions, hurt feelings and back-and-forth accusations in the ongoing dispute between the Ward County Historical Society and the North Dakota State Fair Board....

Oh who cares....if anything the city shouldn't be lying to the regular people about the continuous commercial property building that is hurting the people's lives and lying about property lines and so forth. It's sickening...it's time to take our community back and the historical society should fight like mad on the fair grounds......and why is the Chamber involved they should be worried about the businesses that are interfering with people's lives...it's not their mission to worry about a non-profit......

HMMM!!!! Let's see. The fair has run in the "red" for several years. And now its wants to expand to increase the deficit spending. Perhaps when the fair learns how to run in the black, they can then produce a package to the HS that would be enticing. Until then, learn to manage what you have!!!!!!!!!!

I think they are fine where they are. I think it is stupid to build a big new building on the fairgrounds. Are they crazy? Putting a convention center where the parking is so far away and most of all, in the middle of the flood area? Then the tax payer can rebuild it after the next high water. Seems pretty ignorant to me. I also wonder why they would build a convention center so far from the bulk of the hotels and restaurants. Why not make the pioneer village better where it is and people will come. I have spoken with several who went this year and they really enjoyed it. This is a state fair and they are talking about removing the buildings for the display of 4-h and a barn or two. I think that is wrong. We have enough rides concerts etc. Leave it alone and there can be something for everyone not just teens.

So, let me get this straight . . .

You agree, put emotions aside. Pioneer Village seems to be the weak spot on the fairgrounds. You haven't stepped foot in it and nobody you know has stepped foot in it in years. And you're not in the minority. Roughly 1% of the NDSF attendees went to it during the fair (according to Pioneer Village #'s), and they didn't get 1/2 of the 1% to sign the petition.

The MDN has no shame. The people who own this newspaper are the only ones who would profit from a protracted legal battle.

and after 'we' spend a ton of money on lawyers, which i'm sure the lawyers appreciate, we'll need another property tax and sales tax increase to pay for their services i'm sure.

Oh, I agree. The Historical Society should spend money on legal fees, which will mean even less money for repairs or moving.
