Griggs County Courthouse Controversy

My name is Ron Dahl and I can be contacted at rondahlnd@yahoo.com. This site will be heavy on documentation and it will also contain my views and observations on various topics.  I will always try to scan any pertinent documentss and upload them here so that they are available to everybody.  I'll try to make all the legal documents here and offer my attempt at describing them in everyday terms.

The focal point of this site will be Griggs County, North Dakota.  Stories from the surrounding area will be included when they are related to Griggs County issues or just plain interesting.

I welcome guest opinions, commentaries and editorials with your views and observations.  Just email them to me and I will try to post them here.  I'll typically use web standards in deciding what might be offensive and vulgar and unfit to post here.  That means pretty much anything goes, but I have to reserve the right to use my own standards to refuse anything I consider vulgar, profane or inappropriately offensive.

Right now the decision by the county commissioners to build a new courthouse without voter approval and the backlash leading to the subsequent recall effort is big news here.

Enjoy your visit and come back soon!
