To the Editor,
The 2000 Fillmore County Fair is history. I think it will be remembered as one of the best county fairs here in decades. Not only was the weather perfect, the good mood and attitudes of those exhibiting and attending was unparalleled in recent years.
The Fillmore County Fair is a fine example of what the spirit of volunteerism can do for a county. From the tractor pull to the poultry show none of it would happen if it were not for the effort of the people that volunteer to help.
Unfortunately these volunteers and the Fair Board are often criticized in an unconstructive manner. Our family learned long ago that here in Fillmore County if you don't like the way something is being done, lending a helping hand goes a lot farther than an ill word.
"Hats off" to the Fillmore County Fair, the Fair Board and all the volunteers. It was a wonderful fair.

To the Editor,
In reading last week’s article concerning the investigation of the MN Dept. of Health, it amazes me to think how ignorant Mr. Scheevel and Mr. Davids think we as citizens are.
When Mr. Davids was confronted about this meeting, his first reaction was, “who told us,” and “how much do we know?”
Suspicious??? Possibly! He continued to say that the meeting wasn’t about the Reiland Dairy. O.K., let’s see who was in attendance - Mr. Davids, Mr. Scheevel, three staff members from the MPCA (who were assigned to this project to decide whether or not an EIS was needed), the Dept. of Health and the DNR (who just so happened to ask for an E. I.S. on this project).
Coincidence? We think not! To us it looks like a huge elephant that Mr. Scheevel and Mr. Davids are scared might just fall out of that willow tree on top of them.
When looking up what an E.I.S. is, it says that an Environmental Impact Study is done to see if a proposed project has the potential to impact the environment. Nowhere does it say that it is a tool to stop dairy expansion.
Maybe the topic at the next meeting Mr. Scheevel calls to order should be How can Reilands build a dairy without a 7.3 million gallon earthen lagoon. Mr. Davids and Mr. Scheevel both need to remember they are representing ALL farmers and citizens in this area.
