  1. Minnkota Power (Grand Forks) is a big push behind enhanced (CO2 based) oil recovery. They'd be grabbing off-gas from their stacks (Young Station) and compressing it to CO2 and selling it to the CO2 injectors. Selling what is normally waste, that sounds good for Minnkota, right? You missed the real reason: No atmospheric (CO2) emissions from Minnkota's coal plants. Project Tundra
  2. 17th Avenue South is a non-starter. It's a mile from both 32nd Avenue and Demers Avenue. What should go there is an underpass (no ramps) like at 40th Avenue in Fargo. That would let Alerus traffic go west from events to the north-south road in the industrial park and then to 32nd or Demers. I know the King's Walk folks want 47th Ave but it'd be more cost effective to finally put ramps on Merrifield Road (where there's already an overpass). It's only three miles from Merrifield Road to 32nd Avenue South. Putting in a Merrifield exchange would truly open up south end development. As far as a south bridge over the Red ... 32nd would make sense as would Merrifield Road, because they'd line up well to Minnesota side roadways, so those can't happen.
  3. You can do that as long as the luck formula involves someone standing in front tipping pucks.
  4. My concern: Who's going to step up and show the group of forwards it's acceptable to put up some goals, early and often. Last season it was like they were afraid to.
  5. Well, either my math is off, or Berry is carrying 27 this season (instead of the Blais/Hak traditional 26 slot roster): G (3): Thome, Scheel, Feeney D (8): Peski, Poolman, Bast, Kierstad, Rieger, Tychonick, JBD, Frisch F (16): Johnson, Yon, Bowen, Michaud, Smith, Mismash, Adams, Keane, Kawaguchi, Hain, Weatherby, Senden, Blaisdell, Albrecht, Pinto, Caulfield Given recent history, I don't have any issue with that. We've seemed to be scrambling at times to fill a game day roster card.
  6. Right now it's all pretty pictures. What'll scream "FBS" to me is someone walkin' in and goin' all ...
  7. Given that city block is about 365' from curb to curb north to south (University to 2nd Ave N, thank you Google maps) that's a softball field. Allowing for stadium and street standoffs you have about 220' down the left field line which is a minimum.
  8. I'm the field shown is only marked for football and soccer, not lacrosse.
  9. And built for defense: The batters look into the afternoon sun (to the southwest). Pitcher's park.
  10. Eat up that much general parking (softball complex) they'll need the east parking ramp. If they put athlete housing on old Memorial, they'll need east parking ramp. Maybe, just maybe, the bridge to nowhere will go somewhere (other than a west parking ramp).
  11. Tell that to the guy who loads hand grenades into shipping crates.
  12. I have trouble arguing against any of those three statements.
  13. A Randklev update (injury status, this season, and next season): https://www.inforum.com/sports/hockey/3971068-Former-Moorhead-hockey-standout-UND-commit-Randklev-still-fighting-back-from-ACL-tear Summary: Next key rehab date in September (decide if allow full contact) Team for 2019-20 -- Fargo Force Team for 2020-21 -- UND
  14. Folks, reality check: It's been relatively flat for the last decade or so, and should stay that way, but come about 2024 the number HS grads will be start to drop significantly (say 10%). Not all colleges are going to survive that well. If you're not planning and preparing, now, for that you're going to have a lot of empty classroom and residence hall space. And those students, they're a 5G generation; they'll be looking more and more for online options. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2016/12/06/high-school-graduates-drop-number-and-be-increasingly-diverse
