weird to think that a POS like Keith Ellingson has any say on anything that happens in EGF

 

Could Mr. Ellingson get into his car right now, no map, no GPS, and drive directly to East Grand Forks.

The majority of the money that the Boardwalk took was from unofficially forgiveable flood loans if I recall correctly. 

Emotions were high in a closed-door meeting in August between the city of East Grand Forks and a business that received a $510,000 loan more than a decade ago that has since gone unpaid.   https://www.grandforksherald.com/news/3694592-recordings-show-emotion-meeting-over-unpaid-loan

If I remember correctly, there was also a grant after the flood of 1997.   

Made the news for some time.

Allow me to save EGF and Polk County some authoring. Others may adopt as they may choose. However, my recommendation would be to adopt it in executive session, publish it quietly, and then invite the Governor and AG and see how well they are keeping up on local law. ;) 

 

WHEREAS: The pandemic is a serious public health concern; and
WHEREAS: The Governor has statewide restrictions on business in place due to the pandemic; and 
WHEREAS: The pandemic would never be used for personal political gain by any public entity or official; and 
WHEREAS: Infection of a state official in our jurisdiction would be a great tragedy and embarrassment to the jurisdiction, 
THEREFORE: We the duly elected and sworn council take actions as follows: 

HERETOFORE: Any statewide elected official present in [legal jurisdiction here] shall at minimum TRIPLE any mask wearing mandate set for the State by the Governor; 
HEREBY ENACTED: [ dated ] 

PENALTY: Failure to comply with this jurisdictional law mandates a personal fine (to be paid from the official's personal funds, with no State reimbursement) TRIPLE the greatest single fine issued to any entity under the Governor's statewide restrictions plus two nights incarceration in the jurisdictional holding facility. Failure to comply with this section (failure to pay fine) mandates the penalties of this section again plus no fewer than 180 days incarceration in the jurisdictional holding facility (no exceptions for any request, e.g. special health circumstances).

Fargo has benefited from the MN "pause" and will continue to do so over the holidays.

Was in GF Sunday......Rhombus was hopping.

ND HS winter sports got rolling with games on Monday.

Legend's and Brewtus Brickhouse in Clay County plan to give Walz the middle finger and reopen. Same goes for The Boardwalk and Joe's Diner in Polk. Go support these establishments if possible  this weekend.

It paid big time to have ties to the mayor at the time when it came to the flood loan "disappearing" come repayment time.

Well NCAA has recommended unvaccinated student athletes wear masks, get weekly COVID tests, and be quarantined if exposed to the virus. Vaccinated student athletes  will not be tested. They also can remain in practice with masks for up to 14 days and not be quarantined. Unvaccinated individuals need to mask and practice social distancing in all situations except practice and competition. Everyone needs to mask for travel snd indoor settings. Can not quite get a vision on the practical application of all of this….. just saying!

Forget all of the political BS. You want to play?  Then you do everything you can to put yourself in a position to be successful. Get in the weight room, the film room, get your workouts in, keep your grades up, stay out of trouble, and do everything you can to help your teammates be successful. You have an obligation to be ready to play. Next man up means you are ready to play and have prepared yourself physically and mentally to compete and do your best. That includes taking care of your health. That means you get vaccinated. It is safe and very effective. The mask protocols are different and a separate argument. Before going into combat you train, you prepare mentally and physically. You get updated with multiple shots. Sometimes you take anti malaria meds and sometimes you take anti nerve agents that are still being studied. You do that because more than anything you don’t want to let your fellow soldiers down. Combat teams just like sports teams rely on each other and you have to count on each other to do their job. The evidence of the safety and efficacy of the COVID vaccines is overwhelming. The coaches and players are stuck with NCAA guidelines. The masks are a minor irritation that can’t be allowed to detract from the focus and mental preparation to be successful on the field. The sooner people are vaccinated, the sooner we can quit arguing about masks and the sooner the politicians can move on to something else to screw up. 

If you had covid before you have better immunity than the vaccine. Just saying.  If you don't have immunity get the !@#$ don't let your teammates down.
