Sandstone had better beware. A signed contract with Essentia is just a start in the negotiations. Who on the local board that signed the contract to sell for the debt should be terminated. What ever Essentia says, anyone with a room temp IQ should know their motivation is to make Sandstone feel good about feeding all their secondary and tertiary care to Duluth, eliminating even appropriate specialty care in Sanstone and also eliminating competition with the superior Twin Cities facilities.

"Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes" is a Latin term which translates to "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts". If anyone truly believes the city's desires trump return on investment for Essentia, you are delusional. They likely want the three year lease so they can drag their feet on expansion and buy the complex for even less three years from now.

Big business and big government will ultimately win in the end. That is the new American way.

Why do I smell something fishy here? Such an abrubt turnaround? I wouldn't trust Essentia to act in the town's best interests.
