Makes more sense to have the State Fair in Bismarck where it is the State Capital and it is in the center of the state and there is an interstate! Get this bleeping State Fair Mess the bleeping out of Minot! We can still have the bleeping Hostfest without the State Fair!

TOG: May I say wow! You said enough smart in 3 lines to make me a neo-con. The fair alone taxes us and being surrogate mother to Hostefest is just too underworld for me. Give me liberty from these silver tongues with leutefisk on their breath.

Agree completely. If they do get the boot, however, the city could pay for the move with the "projects" portion of our sales tax or the state could pay for it with pocket change from the billions they are hoarding. It is appalling to me an event center is a priority when we have so far to go with flood control. All this concern about structures in the flood plain would be moot if we would hold off on empire building until our city has real flood protection.

Have any of those three letter writers visited the village since the flood? Restoration with hollow core doors, loss of hundreds if not thousands of artifact---all by the flood waters of the river. If the WCHS had any smarts at all; they would be saying, " yes, we will move, but we need financial assistance to do so". Why not take the opportunity at this time to get out of the flood plain so they can really preserve history?

The State Fair Board has done enough damage to the rapport with the WCHS and probably won't be fixed.

It is better to fire them all.
