Nuh, nuh, nuh. Not the ONAMIA city council. Don't make me laugh! When it comes to their beloved sex offenders, for some reason the Dahmerville "officials" just can't say no. It was SMART people on the FAIRMONT city council who said "no" to Nexus - They said "no" when Nexus pressured them to change THEIR city plan (at least THEY have one) and change THEIR zoning laws to (once again) accommodate this tyrannical, parasitic organization. (yeah Vic. Go for it.)
I can't report too much about the Nexus failed juvenile detention center down in southern Minnesota because Nexus neglected to provide details (shhhh. Its a secret...) to the Dahmerville city council - even while demanding tax abatement, of course. It seems to be a "don't ask, don't tell, show me the money!" situation.
According to a tip I received, Nexus bought the Five Lakes juvenile detention center several years ago and couldn't make it succeed. Nexus FAILED??? hmmm. This is what my "Tipster" told me. Anyway, according to the Fairmont Sentinel (a REAL newspaper with REAL reporters), the Nexus facility has been empty since 2002. Now they're trying to sell it -
but because the correctly placed Fairmont juvenile detention facility is in an area away from families - zoned INDUSTRIAL (notice it is NOT in a residential area), Nexus is determined to get the zoning changed so that they can dump the defunct facility. They do not care about how this affects the city or the citizens. Its only about Nexus. Its ALL about Nexus. It always is.
I'd say, there goes their lawyer's argument in MY case that Nexus allegedly didn't have anything to do with changing OUR zoning laws. Of course they did. You cannot deny the true nature of Nexus. (You remember the story of the Scorpion and the Frog???)
Well, we see another pattern with Nexus. Nexus attorney Mark Manderfeld is working Fairmont like he worked over Onamia. And get this - the opposition has been accused of hating kids, just like I was. When I first heard Nexus was coming to destroy our neighborhood, I thought they were just looking for a place to build a new facility. I honestly didn't begrudge them that. At first. Little did I know the lengths they would pursue in order to harm anyone who got in their way, (or even criticized them.)
Familiarity breeds contempt.
And I am now very familiar with Nexus.
Wouldn't it have been nice if the Dahmerville city council would have cared about Onamia's future like Fairmont's council cares about it's city?
"In short, setting precedent was his concern. He feared the code change would give leverage to other business owners seeking to move into parts of town where their operations aren't compatible with existing business."
"... If we change the rule for one private business,
we would have to do it for everybody."
Commissioner Tom Hawkins
Once again, Nexus isn't compatible... Why can't they follow the rules? Why do they act like the rules don't apply to them? What makes THEM so special???? Like spoiled rotten children, Nexus cannot tolerate anyone telling them "no". But they don't just kick and scream, they threaten and attack. (If you don't believe me, watch them quote parts of this blog in their bogus lawsuit against me.)
So, Nexus is making an appeal to the Fairmont city council.
Who do you think will win?
