Op-ed: Globe editorial is off the mark (by Peter Children)

The Globe states that the deal cut with Cargill looks like growth; you think? Really? Gargill could buy this entire city and rent it out…lock stock and barrel. They are the largest grain brokers in the world…plus they  own Armor Meat Packing as well. They are a global company owned by one family….they are not a public company.

The Globe compares them to I.C. Systems; not even close…bad comparison. I.C. System came here and sold this city a siding job; promised too much, more than they needed to but wanted to impress the council in order to insure the funding they needed…in the end they fell short and had to pay. Then they got irate when they had to write the check. They were Bookmeyer’s campaign mangers and through his (Bookmeyer’s) efforts they thought they’d shut down the HRC offices and get rid of the 8 or 9 cases filed against them. Didn’t work.  In the end Bultje got fired…he’s no longer with the company.

This city is very fortunate to have Cargill come into this town, whatever they want, give it to them.  I’m impressed they are here, I’m not impressed with 20 jobs but that will grow to a infinite number sooner then you think.  At least they won’t be spewing unsafe fumes over the city.

Once again those writing these editorials at the Globe have thrown the three former councilpersons, Weaver, Marsters and Nelson under the bus. The Globe knows that the former council put this deal with Cargill together, but when passing out roses they seemed to have again run short…….
