of business over the individual in minot. They also practice favorites in business like refusing the wall-mart on north hill. Worse than letting business walk on homeowners is we have not had representative Gov't since about 1950. They do not accept NO as a majority vote.

12 years 4 flood control? As we learned in 2011--after all the work since 1969 (and money) we never had adequate flood control. It will never happen until they start digging Our "civic leaders" have their eye on a civic center instead of immediate flood control work.

The little red school houses that once dotted the landscape of North Dakota didn't do one bit of good to help educate the youth of North Dakota during those formative and tumultuous times of early settlement of the state. Those school houses should have never been built, they weren't equipped to educate even a single-celled organism.

It is too bad any of them were ever built. It provided a job for somebody who could have done better had they gone to school and not ended up a useless worker relegated to building a small school so children had a place to go to not learn a thing.

What was the government thinking hiring people to help build schools when all that happens is nobody learns one single lesson of what an education can do, open doors, raise tolerances, improve skills. Teach somebody to have an open mind.

Why bother to learn one thing? An education is a waste of time and money, you don't need to learn a thing in life, you know too much already.
