73, a balance is needed. What seems to be taking the longest is the repair, rebuild, and development of di kes, levees that will prevent something like this from happening again. The flood did weave a strong thread through our community through the lives of those directly and indirectly affected by the devastation. It is my hope that everyone pitches in early and frequently this year in cleaning up litter and cutting the grass and weeds from abandoned lots. That is something that everyone can do.

disgusted, totally understand and while not flooded have volunteered and assisted where I could, labor and monetarily. My issue is that while we do need flood control we cannot just forget about everything else that makes Minot a community worth living in. I honestly wish the best for those impacted by the flood and I am aware that the headaches continue to pile upon you all but am also tired of hearing the "forget about everything else". Once rebuilt, how nice will it be to live in a town with no parks, etc. As much as we hate it, taxes drive everything and if folks move away because we don't have parks, recreation and other "niceties" of a community the burden becomes heavier for those who stayed. Not sure what the correct answer is but there has to be a balance. Now to just find that elusive balance...

73, I understand your sentiment, but our home that didn't have a drop of water in the 69, 74,76, or 79 flood, took on over 5 feet on our main floor or about 13 feet from the street level. We refurbished our humble abode because we were not taking on a mortgage. btw, thank you for the $30,000 we received from FEMA. It gave us heat and power before the winter of 2011. The rest of the work has been done by us, and paid for by us. Of course, if the feds get their way and add ten grand for flood insurance, we will never be able to give it away. The park district has their job which is not repairing the d i k e s. It will be great when that is done. Of course, they could bull doze the valley from west of Burlington to east of Logan, north to University Ave and south to burdick.

Flood control? Releases from Lake darling r 22cfs (nearly nothing). Hurry up and rebuild--said the city. I say to the city: Hurry up and get flood control. Not hockey, park stuff or an event center.

Just for the heck of it I searched Bluestone Construction on the ND State business services records search and Bluestone Construction is not listed. Is it a new company that has not yet registered?
