Mike McFeely's Myopic Musings

Mike McFeely’s Myopic Musings

Then again…, this is the rantings and ravings of a mediocre talk show host pandering to a dwindling peanut gallery on parsed information provided to him by the very proponents being paid directly or indirectly to develop the project.

Pawluk’s Pen Perils (part 7)

The danger of losing objectivity is that a pragmatic solution for Fargo’s contrived flood levels becomes harder to reach, largely because the goal is financially unrealistic.

Pawluk’s Pen Perils (part 6)

What happens when taxpayers get to pay sales tax and tax assessments for local and federal share for the dam, diversion and then flood insurance?

Pawluk's Pen Perils (part 5)

Pawluk’s Pen Perils (part 5)

Rather ignominious to bellyache that people need a flood so that Pawluk and his ilk can pompously deliver a “WE TOLD YOU SO”, when they’ve had SIX LONG YEARS to complete internal flood protection and help those 20,000 property owners avoid FEMA flood insurance,
