Will I guess if we need a new courthouse than let's build it for the taxpayers of YMC! Let's build it in Clarkfield !Centrally located, Planning and zoning is already there, the ag office place is there! Why drive all the way to granite falls?

Your post about the FEMA trailer obviously shows you cared. Can't deny that can you?

Perhaps you're right commonman. We may never know. Actually, I don't understand why farmkid thinks I really care whether he's against the renovations, or new construction. I just thought maybe farmkid would have something of value to contribute to the conversation, but evidently, as he/she surmises, my thoughts are usually wrong.

Farmkid and hartman, I think you are having the same argument. I didn't read farmkids post to be negative and I know hartmans isnt. Sometimes you can fundamentally disagree, but still agree on certain topics. If the current building is so inefficient, it makes sense to build a new one, saving money in the long run.

Gee Hartman, such wise fatherly wisdom you're offering up. Where was that on the 16th? I've got plenty to offer, but as I'm not a resident, then why?

BTW: Of course you're wrong. You're usually wrong when you post your thoughts. After all this time you haven't figured that out?

I'm thinking, farmkid, that if you believed your opinion of whether the residents of YMC should either renovate, replace or take a different approach to upgrade their courthouse were worth sharing, you would have already expressed them. Please tell me if I'm mistaken.

Yup, I was there, and you're not very clever.

What makes you think I'm against the renovations, or new construction?

"You mean people didn't complain about the expense when it was first built?"

Quite a bit of guessing in your post, farmkid, unless you were there. I was just pointing out the weak nature of your first post.

I'm sure there were a few who complained about the cost farmkid. Most likely it was those satisfied living in sod houses with an outhouse in back. Others took pride in knowing that what they were building would not only improve the local infrastructure but also the quality of life for current residents and that of future generations. Past generations paid for a beautiful, functional building that has served the County well over a 125 year period. Now its time for the present generation to do the same.

I suppose the alternative would be finding some extra FEMA trailers, connect several of them together, call it a courthouse and force future building costs on to the next generation farmkid. Is that your plan?

You mean its going to be more costly (after accounting for inflation) to build a new courthouse than it was 125 years ago?

Have the STS crew renovate it, unless the STS guy is too busy working on personal interest projects.
