March 3, 201 6 Striking out on vacations Hello, Years ago I served in the North Dakota legislature. During that time I made a lot of wonderful friends. and heard a lot of great speeches. I think of Senator Waldera promoting a bill that legalized dollar limit poker at charitable functions. And saying. “Do you think the cowboys that trailed cattle into the Dakota Terri- tory spread a blanket out by the fire, and said, "Let’s play bingo!” But there was one Senator who would get his idioms mixed up. At least I think they are idioms. It‘s phrases like. “He’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer”. He would say thing such as. “I’m not the brightest bulb in the drawer”. Or “You can't make a pigs purse out of a sow’s ear"! I used to really pay attention when he spoke! He was dang sure good for an occasional col- umn. What made me think of this is this morning? I’m thinking, "I’m not the brightest bulb in the closet”, or "My elevator doesn’t run all the way to the top"! You see, every couple of years, I promise my first wife I will take her on an exotic vacation. 1 took her to the Watford City and Drake High School rodeos on our honeymoon forty some years ago. Of course she had to secretary and time. And carry a flag in the Grand Entry. And years later, I promised I would make it up to her. I took her to a bucking horse sale in Mesquite. Texas. Of course she had to haul a trailer load of horses 1200 miles! One year I took her on a cruise. I found that a cruise is much the same Hat Tips By Dean Meyer . as being locked in a huge casino for five days. I pretty much stayed at the tables, while she suffered with a bout of seasickness in our 8 by 10 cell. I took her to Oklahoma City for the National Finals Rodeo, only to find out that they had moved it to Vegas! That was a real downer. This year I swore it would be dif— ferent. She was looking forward to lying on a white, sandy beach. A cold drink with an umbrella sticking out of it in her hand. Listening to the waves roll up on the shore and im- mersin g herself in a good book. So I booked a trip to Charleston, SC. That‘s right. The east coast. Which is being pummeled by torna- does and snowstorms. You can see Charleston on the news pretty much every week. This weekend it was 72 above in Bismarck! 72!!! And the high in Charleston was 51 . With rain show- ers. By the time you read this. we will be on our long—awaited vacation. And all of our friends have been posting pictures of themselves on sunny beaches in Mexico. Or golfing in Florida. Or riding and roping in Arizona. Or watching the dolphins and whales off the coast of Califor— nia. I told her this morning that we should cancel our flights, and we could take a dump trailer and a skid steer along and help with the clean up along the Atlantic Coast. And that is how the fight started. Later, Dean PSC hearings rescheduled for wind farm The North Dakota Public Service Commission (PSC) has unanimously approved a request to delay the pub- lic hearings for the proposed Brady Wind Energy Project. As a result. the public hearings that were scheduled for the wind project and the associated transmis— sion line for March 2 in Dickinson were rescheduled for March 30. The public hearings have been rescheduled as follows ( two separate hearings): Wednesday. March 30; 8 a.m., wind project; and 5 p.m., trans— mission line: both at Dickinson City Hall. 99 2nd Street East, Dickinson. The request for continuance was submitted by the Concerned Citizens 'ofStark County. The group ‘asked that the hearings be postponed: to allow them more time to review all of the recent information that has been submitted for the project. Brady Wind L.L.C.. a wholly- owned. indirect subsidiary of Nex- tEra Energy Resources. has submitted applications for permits for the Brady Wind Energy Center and an associated transmission line. The wind farm will have a capacity of approximately 150 megawatts and will consist of up to 87 wind turbine generators and associated facilities. The project will also include a 19 mile long, 230 kilovolt (kV) trans— mission line. Total cost of the wind project is estimated at $250 million and thetransmission line is estimated at $12 million. The hearings provide an opportu— nity for members of the public to contribute to the PSC's official record.
