Ingulsrud will keep on saying there are no issues when in fact there are many. At American Crystal it’s called the “We can’t tell them the truth, We have to tell them what they want to hear”, syndrome.

Hmm, drier fire in EGF this morning, http://www.kfgo.com/fm-headline-news.php?ID=0000005334
tipped over molasses car in Drayton, Sugar on top of the factory in Moorhead, pellet car delrailed in EGF, Moorhead had to go to City power, Crookston not processing beets until Monday (NOT due to heat, or else ALL factories would be shut down. Their problem is because they flooded the waste water pump house), and and and, I could go on… I hope the farmers have been saving money for a rainy day, I see clouds coming

I feel it is time for the growers to put a leash on the deceit and lies coming from the inmates running their asylum!!! I went and stopped to talk with these locked out workers for a better feel of what is wrong. I invite others to do the same! The smoke poured out the roof, and then I seen fire trucks blazing by me. I look at the faces of the locked out workers and it broke my heart to see them standing watching not allowed to react like they were trained to do. Then someone made a comment taking ownership about THEIR factory being on fire. I heard Mr. Inglesrud earlier, say everything is going well running fine no problems. Is it? There is plenty of genuine concern here for safety and for community. And if the Clergy are reading these blogs and news, whatever the faith they are, should be putting this foremost in their call for prayer and help to stop this madness!!! PLEASE!!
