Why are you so against saving the village from fruther lass and destruction if we have another flood? On one hand you post your feelings about the possibility of another flood and then you push for keeping the historical village in the flood valley. Your thoughts are inchoherent at best.

Doesn't the state own the NDSF? If so, that's not really corporate welfare as much as maintenance, repair, or expansion of an existing asset to better serve your clientele. The Hostfest pays to be there, and in many events (including vendors) pay a percentage of sales as well as rental space. (all of this information is public knowledge if you search their website) If improving or expanding the existing space for vendors and events means more events , vendors, and more visitors the expansions will pay for themselves, it’s more of an investment opportunity for the state than an expense. While I like the pioneer village, it’s not an attraction that draws many visitors or makes much money on it’s own merit. With the air shows, firework performances, and unknown other events (thanks to the nice new building that opened this year) on north hill by the Air Museum, the village is better suited to be located on north hill and will probably get just as many quality visitors.

Money talks and the excrement that hits the fan walks.

Until they go to court and then the judge gets to decide what's what.

The historical society didn't ask for this fight and have to go full mode defensive. What gives the state fair board the right to throw their weight around and create a completely ugly situation when all they had to do was extend a helping hand instead of a jackboot on historical society's throat, going all NAZI on everybody in town and handing an 8 centimeter Star of David to display on their sleeves, who says they can do that?

What a bunch of cads we have on the state unfair board, bullying is the word of the day today.

Off with their heads.
