Not content with what they already have, Oxbow’s lawyer stood up in Federal Court last month and argued that Oxbow is the victim. Apparently the federal injunction that stopped the construction on the ring dike is making it difficult for the private Oxbow Country Club to finish their golf course re-design.
Without hesitation, push-back in any form is met by Mahoney’s quintessential debasing criticism that “they” don’t “understand” and “must be educated” by the “all knowing” Imperial Fargo – Imperial Cass leaders.
