The work will be appreciated no matter where it goes... And I thought this was a forum to reply to the articles; not pick apart everyone's grammar. Relax.

I think it's funny how people have to criticize every grammatical and spelling error that people post on here. It's an informal forum with no way to edit once you've posted. Get over it!

It's a pretty sad day when we have to get excited that 5 local companies got some work. I hate to see what happens in the future around here.

I just heard today that Little River is shutting down for a month and laying off another shift of people. Sounds like they may be relocating if you ask me.

NOT all Grand Rapids companys were on that band wagon. Let's not take out on the majority because of a handful that were thinking of no one but themselfs.

I had heard at one point the Gun Lake tribe was not going to even consider a contractor who was a member of the GR Chamber of Commerce.

They already told members of the GR Chamber of Commerce not to bother bidding, you have to love it. Crazy Horse finally gets some revenge.

Is this Crazy Horse's tribe or Noondays?

Nonetheless, what difference does it make since they will only employ token Indians.
