  1. Facilities Master Plan

    When those were built, there was clear land all the way to Larimore. Now they look like low income projects that one sees in the South. They just aren’t a good use for much more valuable real estate property.
  2. Downtown Grand Forks

    Always thought 3rd St needed at least one block that imitated Bergen, Norway architecture. https://goo.gl/images/Sxs3BP
  3. Downtown Grand Forks

    When the water plant is demolished, there is no reason that a ten story condo doesn’t go up in its place. Put a new library near there, with external balconies overlooking the Greenway. Think much of 3rd street could see development, as shown by the apartments replacing the old Simonsons Lumber Yard. The St Anne’s area / Gateway should see some high rises too.
  4. WSJ: Oil Booms in North Dakota

    One link which can’t find now says next fall it should be completed. Existing pipelines will be used and the NGLs will be mixed with oil incoming and separated. The NGLs mostly come from gas plants by Watford City so there is a lot of up front work already done.
  5. WSJ: Oil Booms in North Dakota

    Andeavor Logistics is building a $150 million NGL separation plant in Belfield, which will produce propane, butane and natural gasoline. The story has not been picked up in the North Dakota press yet, but has been picked up by a San Antonio paper, where Andeavor is based. NGL’s will be sent off in rail cars.
  6. President Kennedy Candidate for UCF President's Job

    Money is a small segment of Kennedy's personal drivers IMHO. Power and increasing responsibility are what drive him. Politics says you go for a bigger job, like running for the Senate when you are already in the House, which he did. UCF would be a much more challenging job with at least four times the potential impact.
  7. Grand Forks Library

    Feel strongly that a downtown needs a main library. Fine with library branches in strip malls etc, but GF made a big mistake 4 years ago. Urban renewal tore down blocks of downtown and some of that still hasn't been rebuilt.
  8. President Kennedy Candidate for UCF President's Job

    Maybe he knows what is coming down the pike better than this board. UCF would be a great job. It is not as if he were applying to an XDSU. In the upper world that Kennedy is in, if you don't move on you are a loser. Kelley never was considered for another job for very good reasons.
  9. UND (8-17, 3-10) vs SUU (10-13, 4-8) 2/15 7 PM

    Too bad that UND doesn't play these teams twice. Guess that's reserved for Weber, the Montana's, Idaho and EWU.
  10. President Kennedy Candidate for UCF President's Job

    He makes final decisions and doesnt look back. That is a rare characteristic of U President types.
  11. 2017-2018 College Hockey (Non-UND Hockey)

    CC has a very large endowment (>$700 mill) for a small (2000 student) enrollment. Their campus is close to downtown Colorado Springs too. The USOC committee, or their associated sports federations and trainers, would probably be a prime renter too.
  12. Grand Forks Library

    Grand Forks' problem is that it doesn't have a significant corporate presence. Fargo is the distribution center for the state, has major ag and wind related manufacturing, and had a major corporate breakthrough with Great Plains Software. Bismarck doesn't have much corporate presence either, except MonDak and Basin Electric, but state government has grown much over 40 years. Grand Forks badly needs a homegrown Polaris, Arctic Cat, Marvin Windows, or DigiKey.
  13. 2018-2019 Recruiting

    Maybe he is preferred walk on for next year without a scholarship and will be redshirting. Next year will have several scholarship openings. But it probably means someone is leaving. Jones seems to use redshirt scholarships on personnel with questional skills. IMHO redshirt scholarships should only be given to players with strong skills but needing more physical maturity.
  14. College Hockey Expansion

    Since UND moved to DI, am batting .750. Your at what, .000? Stated well before Penn St added hockey that the P1G would add hockey. I was laughed at by self appointed experts like Goon. UND and Denver will run through burning hoops to protect their hockey programs. Got the Great West right. Got the Big Sky whan all the trolls and "experts" said it will never happen and mocked me for years. Never considered that NDSU wouId actually let us in the Summit but the price was two Fargo fb games for admission. Presidents get an orgasm if they get like schools together and The Great Northern remake of the Summit is coming. Idaho wants FBS badly and they will get a Summit fb league to form once IPFW is gone. The WAC FBS statement were nearly home run but foul.
  15. College Hockey Expansion

    Your writeup on why you would advise Arizona State not be invited to the NCHC is appropriate for a clueless Hall of Fame, or rather infamous.
