The new pool is a great addition to the community. Special thanks to the Bethany Legacy Foundation for the generous contribution. Hope the city doesn't raise prices to pay for other tourism projects.
Maybe a more emphasis is needed on summer youth sports (baseball)and less on tourism. And why it got this way? On another note is it just a coincidence that the new park on the river was moved there behind the recently purchased home of the city economic developer? Nice view now.

@Reality, You are correct about China purchasing our land but you are just a few decades late and a few presidents behind on hearing the news. You also might want to be concerned about the long history of China purchasing our raw element mines in the western USA, and the water rights that go with them. Also concerning is Saudi Arabia buying farms owning water rights, growing high quality alfalfa, shipping it to Saudi Arabi. Water rights in the West go with the property when purchased. The deep pocked countries buy farms with old water rights, drill very deep wells, use all of the Water for their crops that are sent out of the country, leaving little to no water for the rest of the towns farmers and citizens. Some communities do not even have enough water for domestic use. This problem is real, it is concerning, it is bipartisan. Congress and the senate need to act.

The Chinese hold over a trillion dollars in US debt. Interest on that debt costs the US government, paid to the Chinese, over 70 million dollars PER DAY! The Japanese are the second largest holder of US debt at almost a trillion dollars. If I were the Chinese or Janapese, given that the increasing US debt liability is just not sustainable, would you invest in more US debt or: real estate, manufacturing, or other tangible assets? Not rocket science. Both political parties are responsible for the increasing debt, and, WE, the American voter, have let it happen. Fiscal mismanagement is rampant at all levels of government.

Well shucks, then let Ford put it on his land at the Proving Ground. Doesn't matter if the farmer is growing anything,but maybe the next owner will. As far as the power plant and your gloom and doom about cancer. Only thing I can say don't like you can always move. There are plenty of people moving here. Why should city council have any say in this considering it a county thing. Two mile buffer zone does not apply.

If you want to debate who let the Chinese in to buy farmland you gotta go back several presidents - this one’s not on Biden although I get the maga - who’s motto is why bother with facts when my uninformed opinion matters more- might be confused on that point . But let’s get real all those screaming about saving farmland aren’t growing diddly squat. So stop the preaching and let farmers decide what they do and don’t want to do with their PERSONAL property. You holier than thous screaming about saving our farm “heritage” need to stay out of farmers business. Let’s be clear the only thing anybody gets from the coal burning plant is an increase risk of cancer and no energy. We may not get the solar energy but we get cleaner air. As for where it goes and where it doesn’t that’s what ordinances are for except the city dropped the ball and as Tammi said the cart got before the horse so I agree the approval should be denied until the city gets their act together.

The Chinese are buying the farmland with the help of Joe and Hunter Biden.

“We need to leave good farm land alone. The farmers are what everyone needs from animals to humans.” Couple of posts suggest putting solar farm at JPG instead of using good farm land. The argument must be that the land growing crops at JPG isn’t good farm land and the people growing and harvesting those crops aren’t real farmers. Gotta explain that one to me. I understand hiding the solar farm at JPG, but that’s not the argument. The argument tries to define good farmland and good farmers from, I guess, land and people working it at JPG that aren’t as good. Don’t get that.

I was reading a story about South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem complaining about China buying US farmland. The first question that came to mind was, who is selling the land to them.If nobody sells land to the Chinese, they wont be able to buy it.

Solar farms should be limited to the old proving ground, Marble Hill or the MIDCOR Industrial Park on Wilson Avenue.

First of all, HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY J.B. Why don't they put the solar farm on Ford's property at the Proving Ground? Doesn't it make sense not to take up good farm land. He sure has the room out there. Ford could use some of the farm ground out there that he plants in crops. Or I'm sure Hambrick has got some land that he could use. We need to leave good farm land alone. The farmers are what everyone needs from animals to humans. The more we grow here in America the less we have to get from Mexico and other country's. Take care of the home before profit. I'm sure that both men will make a hugh amount of money if they get to do this. Just saying.
