What I still do NOT understand is why the Historical Society would not jump wholeheartedly at the offer of free land and assistqance with moving so they can protect their collection from future flooding. But, I guess grudges outway long term planning. I question whether any of you really love, enjoy, or care about the historical items or if you just love to hate the state fair and Hostfest.

It is all about a new event center. Have u heard the masses asking 4 one? Nope. Have the masses asked 4 more crowding in minot? nope. Has the majority suggested WCHS move to make way 4 a new event center? Nope. Are Ward Co. citizens begging to pay 4 a new event center? Never. Does Minot need a new event center to remain a viable business community? No. How much respect will be left 4 the bullies if they get their way? Would it be too much 2 ask 4 a public vote on a new event center? Oh, i forgot this is minot.

It won't be settled until the courts or the legislature settles it.

Apparently, there are irreconcilable differences at this stage of the dispute and the rapport has been ruined.

An eviction is not a nice thing to do. The North Dakota State Fair Board decided to play hardball.

The game continues, which will probably see the State Fair removing all the buildings and maybe razing them, which gives the State Fair Board a huge black eye, which they will richly deserve.

There will be no settlement, the rapport no longer is there, gone, now nonexistent, and the dispute is the Hatfields and the McCoys from now on out.

The North Dakota State Fair Board NEEDS to first scrutinize and then re-evaluate their priorities, for their own good. To preserve any credibility and prove they are worthy of being a state fair board, it would be a good idea to cease all action against the WCHS.

It was a beautiful fairgrounds before the chain link fence. If they had any sense at all, they'd remove the unbelievably ugly fence around the place.
