    Other then upping the property tax assessment NO and they don't care. There is a motel in town value for 2014 tax year 16 million and for 2015 tax year 22 million. Just the school portion of my tax bill was 800 three years ago and last year was over 3000. And that was before they decided to build a 65 million dollar middle school.

    we went from about 17000 to around 30000 not counting the temporaries. It is starting to drop now. At one point Walmart was paying over 14.00/hour for base starting pay.

    Boys can stay home and care for my critters. Younger one will still be in high school and the older will probably be at the local JC. It will be too expensive for them to head out on their own until they make some money, so I will have built in critter sitters. Also my sis and brother are less than 10 mins away.

    can't beat that "home-grown" labor. That's what dad would tell us boys' when driveway needed shoveling. "What do you think I had you boys for"

    Few years back they had radio ads here trying to lure people to move to N. Dakota. Jobs and more jobs. We still have a lot of empty business space available for lease. It's a little better, but this area is still trying to recover from the dot com bust and most recent recession.
