Why? Why is the City of Duluth even involved with this. Don’t they have a casino to deal with, or some over priced office furniture to purchase.

I liked your “Why is the City of Duluth even involved with this? Don’t they have a casino to deal with, or some overpriced office furniture to purchase”, so much, I had to use it.
Yesterday Whinert is whining about a lack of money from the state. Different day, same old got my hands out tune.
Today DFL Duluth and the Ness regime appear dead set against numerous construction and retail jobs for a possible multi-million dollar development and replacement jobs for those lost in DFL Duluth, i.e. K-Mart, Advanstar, Qwest, Post Office and so on.
Why is it so often Democrats are against JOBS? Obama – Keystone pipeline, Jauch – iron ore mining, O Neil, Jewel, Sweeney – Polymet mining, and Ness – big box retail development outside of DFL Duluth.
Another day, another needless controversy.
Vintage DFL Duluth!

Dude – you need to take off the tinfoil hat and the GOP rosey red rhetoric tinted glasses and chill for timeout. Personally, I am much more concerned abouut the our state GOP “leaders” raising my property tax burden my more than 20%. Meanwhile giving tax breaks to the companies and millionaires that are not creating jobs. That tax increase is a few thousand dollars I no longer have spend at any business whether it is in Proctor, Midway Twp or Duluth. Let’s look at the “job creation” your beloved GOP has spent time on since the last election here in MN… shutdown, no jobs there. Gay marriage, no jobs there. Elimiation of homestead property tax credit, no jobs there. Shoot first ask questions later, no jobs there. Voter ID, no jobs there. Stealing from schools to balance budget, no jobs there. Killing Viking stadium, no jobs there. Stripping down the bonding bill to next to nothing, no jobs there… Need I keep going? Maybe you should look at the actual job creation done by your party and not just spew the party line.

Dude – You need to stop drinking the liberal kool-aid and chill for a minute. I am much more concerned about Mark Dayton attacking the rich, increasing spending on education, and having his personal wealth in banks based on other states so he can dodge his tax bill.
Before you go on blaming republicans in the state house and senate, how many jobs did democrats create when they held the majority with a republican governor?

Sounds like the Judge is following the law, and not playing politics. Good for him, that’s how it should be, no matter your “personal feelings” on the matter.

Small glimmer of hope there is a judge following law not making it.

Maybe the Casino is moving to Proctor?

“Duluth Mayor Don Ness has maintained that I-35 is a gateway to the city and should be treated with careful consideration of the impression it makes on visitors.”
Yet he’s perfect ok with the Central Hillside & other parts of town looking like a total warzone.

This on-going saga has an even more intriguing aspect to it that is happening throughout the country and that is the shopping around of judges and finding one that will side with a party not based on merit, but on political gender.
Read and understand the second part to what the assistant Duluth attorney said, “[we’ll be proceeding with the matter in due course] and hope to be more successful with a permanent injunction.” So the first judge fails to deliver to Duluth a temporary injunction and let’s them know very clearly that this case is based solely on a review of state law. Apparently in the legal realm that signals to the litigating attorney to try, try, and try again until you prevail. My concern would be: (1) How many tries does the plaintiff and their attorneys get to seek an injunction? (2) If a subsequent judge issues an injunction isn’t there some kind of state judicial board that reviews each judges options and actions and seeks to assure the public that neutrality, not politics, exists in the courts.
We see this all too often in the courts and it is unacceptable! We are seeing it develop in the Supreme Court as they tackle the legality of ObamaCare with a court openly divided by politics, 5 conservatives and 4 liberals. We’ve seen it in the Scott Walker recall effort – where his attorneys sought legal actions in a more conservative county of Waukesha, only to be overturned back home in Madison and the liberal county of Dane. And we will surely experience it first hand before this is all over. Stay tuned.

Can’t wait for the Spirit Mountain Chalet to be built at the bottom of the hill, so all those skiers can avoid Proctor establishments.

Sure, DK–you have no personal axe to grind here. That’s why you’ve filled up every discussion concerning this issue following a news article.
No comment on the utter lack of basis for Midway and Duluth’s arguments?

Hi Mayor Brenna- happy to see your duties as mayor aren’t keeping you from trolling the boards.

Just admit it DK, he and the judge are right. You never had any basis in law for taking this to court. You’re just wasting your Township’s money on legal fees.
