Once the land is gone...

Posted: July 17, 2012 - 9:23pm

Last Tuesday’s (Crow Wing) county board meeting show that our board members do not care or believe in preserving any of our remaining farmland, even with a signed petition from 12 people against dividing 35 acres of precious farmland, even with only three board members voting.

Selling real estate enters county politics. Looks like trustee can’t be trusted.

I bleieve Mr. Trusty’s relatives were firm believers in protecting the land.

I get mostalgic every time I drive between Robbinsdale and Hamel, where I was raised on 40 acres and think of the thousands of acres with prime land that is now million dollar homes, roads and street lights. Yes, Mr. Trusty, Mr. Thiede and Mr. Houge, once the land is gone, it’s gone forever.
