September 22, 2013

Lianne Zeltinger, Minot I would like to thank Mayor Curt Zimbelman for hearing the cry from the valley. He knew who to contact to get the ball rolling....

how 'bout obnoxiously noxious? Save dandy lions you say? Transplanting Canadian Thistle in Legend's yard would be more fun! The earth and sun have cleansed the land of the 'crap' of which he speaks. Too bad neither of them can cleanse us of the verbal 'crap' spewed by liberals or litter/trash spewed about by mammals! Have a great week-end.

We will have that "crap" in our soil 4 ever. Wack any weed you find annoying. On the up side, those homes not repaired can't suffer much should there be another flood.

Of course, you are right. Cleaning the symptoms away is ludicrous. We should ignore the weeds, the debris, the and the abandoned houses. We need to keep the crap from the flood as a daily reminder.

The weeds are just the symptom. The "dry" dams in canada are the disease. one****shifted from the flood water and canada said they would not fill it more than half full because of that damage. Last report on KX some weeks ago was both dams less than 10 feet from the top. You could wack any weeds you find offensive. what are you doing about the fact that we are more vulnerable to flood than b4 2011?

Call me soft if it suits you. I spent many hours volunteering and giving things to flood victims. When I look at a flood yard not maintained; i think about a family so ripped apart they just can't do it all. The weeds were just weeds to me--not offensive. The flood and damage to peoples lives could have been avoided. Weeds are a good reminder of that damage.

I would not accept a room if i knew flood victims were forced out to acc ommodate me. They could and should have cancelled Hostefest because of that very issue.

The flood was TWO years ago. Not last week, last month, or even last year. People reseve their hotel rooms a year in advance. Minot residents were told they would have rooms till the time of the Hostfest. I am sure you would never create a fuss if your room was canceled, would you. We were flooded, but I for one am happy to not have to look at 4' high weeds everywhere. Weeds are easy to take care of. My you are a bitter whiner. Guess you are one who has been turned in because of your unsightly yard. What was the number of yards called to the city ---200+?

We just went through a devastating flood, are still rebuilding and weeds are your problem? Hostefest people were given preference over flood victims in our hotels. Flooded people were told to hurry up and get it done. Weeds! it does take all kinds.
