We are tired of living in crowded cities. We want living space so we need to implement Gov. Dayton's budget, tax the rich and redistribute that wealth to the workers.

@stonetrooper: You're right on the money with that comment. Here's what our fine city government does: http://www.hastingsstargazette.com/event/article/id/25007

Thank you to all the volunteers!! Now to see if I can sneak this comment in - glad the all the premium stories are ones that I could care less about reading - seems like they are all editorialized comments or biased based on the headlines. Used to be you could read the news and have your own opinions but now they all have a slant to accomplish a point of view.
