Emotions rule over law at Board of Adjustment meeting (July 30, 2001 Journal).

My sympathy goes out to the Livingoods.

My wife and I own a small farm on the outside of Mabel. Fillmore County says that I cannot sell one or two building lots to build a house on. I could sell my farm to an Amish, they could put a sawmill on it. Fillmore County could say No, but they would bellyache and they would build their sawmill.

They would build a house on skids and a year or so later they would put a foundation under it. If you think it is not so, go north of Canton and take a look at farmsteads that have two to three houses.

Lets have one zoning for all citizens of Fillmore County.

We would like to say "Thank You" to all the people who made the Fillmore County Fair a success. From the Fair Board to the 4-Hrs, the commercial interests to the volunteers what a great job you have done. Sure there may be room for improvement, but the positive attitude of those involved makes working through problems and difficulties easy. Even Mother Nature cooperated.

This County Fair makes us proud to be participants. Keep up the good work and we will see you next year.
