Obamanomics powering Brookings

The Peoples Republic of Brookings is not just home to South Dakota's most obese GOP blogger.

Brookings and Pierre could see, smell, feel and hear a hundred trains a day if Genesee and Wyoming gets its way.

Daktronics is going to the Stupid Bowl!
In 2013, the City of Brookings issued building permits for more than $58.6 million worth of construction – the second-highest one-year total in the city’s history. Construction of the huge Bel Brands USA cheese plant and the city-built wastewater digester helped push the value of commercial construction in the community to $35.6 million. [Brookings Register]
Just a reminder: former SOS Gant employee, Pat Powers fled his hometown, Pierre...at least twice...for the Peoples Republic of Brookings. Why? Because the state's capital is a shit hole.

Real estate values in Brookings County are rebounding from the horrors of the Bush era.
Some officials in the Dakotas are sparring good-naturedly over whether the North or the South is better off. North Dakota's energy boom has money flowing into the state coffers and the state economy. But South Dakota also has a strong economy and low unemployment, and some leaders there say that state has a better quality of life. [KFGO, Fargo, North Fucking Dakota]
The forecast for the week shows Mr. Kurtenbach will continue to freeze his fucking ass off so this interested party can keep working on his tan.
