What happens in 15-20 years when the oil companies are here and gone? The county home farm will be a vast wasteland of asphalt and meaningless buildings. The commissioners need to wake up and realize in 20 years people will still have to eat and without any farm ground left, what are they gonna get to grow on the asphalt and concrete? Sacrifice farm ground for a few temporary jobs, we need to vote all 3 of the people out ASAP! They are clueless! This is NOT OVER!
