The Barnes County Water Resource District might shrink a pipeline for a Hobart Lake flooding fix from 26 inches to 24 inches to deal with objections from a nearby property owner. Bruce Anderson, one of the district managers, told Barnes County commissioners Tuesday that a 24-inch pipe would cost about $689,000 to install, contrasted with $819,000 for a 36-inch pipe, but it would likely take two years to decrease water levels five feet, versus one year with a 36-inch pipe.

A small concession of umbrellas sold out at five bucks a piece, and for a few minutes that five bucks was a good investment, when a small shower stayed overhead just long enough to dampen any dust and freshen the pit, which was, literally, already waist-deep in body-sucking, boot-stealing gumbo stew.
