Summer Landmark Comes Down


After 77 years making history, it came down this week …

The historic Grand Stand on the Marshall County Fair Grounds in Warren, was demolished Wednesday, with Gowan Construction of Oslo partnering with the Marshall County Fair Board on a project that includes the rebirth of the iconic summer landmark.

The decision to move forward with a new grandstand was made at this month’s meeting of the Marshall County Agricultural Association with final plans on a new structure to be presented to the Marshall County Fair Board December 16th.

The Grand Stand was built in 1939 and fair board members say she has hosted a number of great events, but they say structural concerns and the investment to make repairs could not justify maintaining the existing structure through another fair season.

While board members say they are uncertain a new grandstand will be in place for the 2017 Marshall County Fair, they do promise Grand Stand events will continue next summer – even if that means temporary seating.

Fabian Appointed Assistant Majority Leader


Representative Dan Fabian has been appointed one of six Assistant Majority Leaders on the Republican Leadership Team in the upcoming session.

Fabian, from Roseau, was just re-elected to a fourth term and represents the listening area in the Minnesota House.

Last session Fabian served as Majority Caucus Whip, a title that will go to Little Falls Representative Ron Kresha. As far as legislative priorities, Fabian says lawmakers need to address a crisis in health care coverage, including the issue of access.

For the independently insured, without group health care coverage, options for policies in Northwestern Minnesota are few. Policies that are available limit coverage to specific health care networks and come at premiums that can run over $20,000 annually with deductibles of more than $12,000.

The Governor has proposed a plan to write down those premiums by 25%, but still has no agreement with Republican Leadership in the State House and Senate.
