I’ve been a bit under the weather last few days so I apologize for not making my rounds as often in the latter part of the week. It was an extremely busy work week and then I got sick on Friday. Go figure, right before the weekend. The big news to pass on is from the Minot flood front. Our mayor this week chastised FEMA for failing on multiple levels to deliver on their promise to get trailers set up for people still displaced by the June flood. FEMA representatives promised some 2,000 trailers would be set up by mid September. This number was scaled back to 400 trailers and it now looks like the set up date will be the end of October. This has raised serious concerns because North Dakota winters tend to show up early. This doesn’t surprise me because government is an absolutely inefficient beast that can NOT be as responsive to the needs of the people as a local government. Anyway let’s hope the state will inject itself into the process and find a way to help these people out. I’m normally not a big supporter of any government intervention; however because this flood was a man made event caused in my opinion by the complete mismanagement of water flows out of Canada, I feel in this instance the government whether state or federal has an obligation to make this right. This past week was a busy week in the conservative blogosphere. Below are links to some a my favorite articles. So tee it up and enjoy another SENTRY JOURNAL round at the LINKs.

One final note. It was made official this past week. Minot’s Oak Park won the Coco-Cola live positively best park campaign with 3 million plus votes. Oak Park will be awarded $100k to help restore the park. You all played a key part in making this happen. Again I thank you! Keep up the great work and have a great week.
