Anyone know which buildings they got approval to take down? KFGO reported that 5 of the 8 were values under $250k and tearing down these (unused eyesores?) would save a million dollars annually from the operations budget.

That's correct.  Sigma Nu just got completely gutted down to the studs and renovated.  It was almost condemned a few years ago.  They used to be at the old white house, though, so it's kind of getting tore down.

Sigma Nu must of been in what your referring to as the old white house when I was at UND in the early 70's?

Yeah,  I was told they started there.  Not sure when they moved.

Didn't there used to be a Valley Dairy in 314 Cambridge.  My sister used to have nicknames for all of the Valley Dairy locations... Carton Dairy, Mission Dairy..  She called this location Alley Dairy.

I lived at the ATO house for a couple years which was right across the street from the Valley Dairy in the alley. The "official" nickname for this location was "The Sweat" due to all the letters in the Sweetheart Bread sign being burned out except SWE  T. This is also the location where "jesus" usually worked.

That was meant as a little dig at the two fraternities.  I was joking.

Yeah, I think Jesus was pretty stoned most of the time as he saw some crazy stuff in that store and never so much as raised an eyebrow.
