Its getting crazy here too. We had our fourth of July thing here and we all have pancakes at the Community Barn. The farmers are all hot about they are going to lose their ethanol subsidy, but they are all making a killing right now and they are all buying new combines and more land. You can’t buy an acre of Corn Ground.
We have a 200 million tax shortfall in SD and the Farmers pay no sales tax (Over 500 million) Those rich Republican Farmers are cutting Social Services and aid to Schools. Now that they are making money they send their kids to private school..
Most of our people are working in SD, but for the lowest wages in the country.
The bigger expensive houses are selling OK, but the older low priced ones cant get financing. Older homes are getting to be in bad shape too. No money to fix things. When you look around you see peeling paint and rust. Its not good.
