Sibley, Let me get this straight, your attitude is to forcibly take money from widows and senior citizens on fixed incomes to launch this boondoggle and then make them pay for it when it fails, with NO vote. My attitude is at least let them vote on it. Ah, whose attitude s**ks? The seniors not getting money from a bloated farm bill all agree with me. I will advocate for them all day long. P.S. Another township said NO last night.

After fiber do you want the widows to pay for sewer-&-water to be run up to your farm site? I'm sure you can get a Joint Powers Board to get that going so the elderly have to pay for that too. After that, go for a curb-&-gutter Joint Powers Board.

You city folks just don't get it! You get choices of Internet providers. We who live in a rural area don't get choices. The choices when we first wanted internet was dial-up or Clearwave. We had to cut down 100+ year old trees in order to get "line of site" to the tower. Then we got the privilege of paying $60 a month for 512K. Clearwave cut us off as of February 1. Now we have NO Internet. If we want to get Internet, 300 feet of cable will have to be buried through our grove just to get line of site to a different tower. And no one seems to know the answer to this - why doesn't Ma Bell (Century Link?)want us to know that fiber optic cable has been buried for years and unused? Give us rural people access to that cable so we can have BASIC internet!!

Oh, and he's a Carlton grad where neither Christianity or the Constitution are welcome. Carlton teaches students to hate the True God and to hate free enterprise. He probably had Paul Wellstone for a professor and reads "Rules for Radicals" every night, the playbook of socialists.

Ok, now this project is finally making sense to me . . . it's about business getting cheaper internet, taxpayer be damned. Odd how businesses are willing to drive other businesses out of business for cheaper internet. I wonder if they are the same ones that complain about people shopping at WalMart?
