  1. I looked back several years and did not see a one-place-fits-all thread for driving, traffic, construction, etc., so have at it, boys and girls! Saw this at the Herald's website just now, http://www.grandforksherald.com/news/4092767-police-beefing-traffic-enforcement-gateway-drive There are only a couple of possibilities here: (1) people are scofflaws, or (2) the posted speed limits are too low. Don't know about you, but I vote (2). Gateway/Hwy 2 is, in addition to being a designated U.S. highway, a divided, limited access arterial road with smooth pavement, a level surface, wide shoulders, raised median, and good visibility. In other words, it's good for 45-50 mph, easy. I always understood that traffic data tending to show a disproportionate amount of speeding was used to evaluate speed limits and (gasp) sometimes even raise them to conform with reality. Yet, the GFPD's knee-jerk response here is to "beef up traffic enforcement on Gateway Drive." I'm shaking my head at this one. Revenue over common sense? Thoughts?
  2. https://www.grandforksherald.com/news/crime-and-courts/7171655-GFPD-uses-prostitution-sting-to-study-human-trafficking-in-the-city Saw this story on WDAY Friday night and was puzzled. The gist was that GFPD ran a typical John sting, with a non-existent prostitute. Here's the problem: No indication of trafficking here. I've watched "COPS," and I can tell you that adult women can and often do voluntarily engage in sex-for-money. What about this setup is even remotely related to "individuals who are doing this against their will"? Could they not at least have posed as an adult offering the services of a minor, or the services of a "young woman new to town" or an "immigrant"? You know, to draw in the real scuzzballs? The CVIC person is quoted as saying that ordinary Johns "are doing harm and may not realize the person providing sex to them is going through, they may be being beaten, held against their will, starved." But all you could possibly accomplish here is to soften the market for ALL prostitution. You could bust 1000 Johns (ruining countless lives) and not put a single dent in 'human trafficking.' Would this not have been infinitely more intelligent to set up as a reverse sting, drawing in the trafficked, or the traffickers, rather than three horny, lonely dudes who were just looking for love in the wrong place? I really hope that the Herald and WDAY either got the story wrong or that certain details were left out. Because otherwise this sounds like a Keystone Kops exercise, devoid of logic, and I want to believe that the GFPD is better than that. If you want to bust regular Johns, fine, but please don't pretend it has anything to do with some greater evil. (Discussion time) What say you...is it time to legalize and regulate the sex trade in ND?
  3. Since the last crime-related thread was shut down a while back, I figure we need a new one. And with headlines like this, we needed a new one BAD. Seems the Herald/Forum aren't messing around with this one, and got right to the point.
  4. Off to a great start. Cloudiest US city for the month of October. This may actually explain a lot.
  5. Give us your best guess as to the businesses who are unlikely to ever re-open their doors or, if they do, it will be short-lived. Is this the perfect time for small businesses to fold? What about underperforming locations for regional/national chains? New businesses? Established players? (Insider information is 100% welcome.)
  6. The North Dakota Legislature appears likely to be sending to the Governor a bill permitting cities to install parking meters. How does the thought of having to pay to park affect your downtown dining options? Assume for the sake of argument that the meters will be active 7 days a week, and during lunch and dinner hours, and will take credit cards/pay by phone, and that the app is easily downloaded and user-friendly.
  7. In a column/article about UND hockey, longtime Herald sports writer Tom Miller dropped this bomb: Really, Tom? You had to go there? It's 2017. We're several years removed from the previous regime, we've grown, we've matured, we've tasted success, we've made the playoffs, and we are full of hope and optimism for the first time in a long time. Yet, you had to take a snipe at the previous coach? By name? Show some class. The writer here could have used big boy words and made several creative or witty allusions to the recent down period for UND football. He could have indirectly referenced Mussman a million different ways, and all of the readers in Siouxland would have gotten the joke, and maybe even smirked a little. He could have taken the high road and tied FB attendance to fan apathy or performance generally, instead of calling out a coach or a staff. This was small, petty, and mean. And bush league journalism. Okay for Deadspin, I suppose...maybe that's where Tom's aspirations lie. The Herald is blessed to have such an excellent sports writer in Brad Schlossman...I only wish the same could be said for his colleague and understudy. Boo, Tom. Boo.

  9. I was excited about this game, now I'm thinking they should cancel. Where you at, Grand Forks? Puck drops in four days, and this is embarrassing:
  10. Always Low Prices. Even in crisis.
  11. Dear City of Grand Forks, Please, please, please return our orange barrels. You've had them long enough. Sincerely, The Rest of the Civilized World P.S. What ARE you doing with all of them?
