“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Cabela’s Campaign

As noted by the South Dakota War College this morning, the Cabela’s deal remains a central issue in Rapid City.

While TIFs are a key part of the current debate, it’s the land giveaway part of the deal that sticks in many people’s craw (and the Visitor Information Center move, though that appears to have gone away with Cabela’s statement that the VIC can stay where it is).

As the September 18 vote comes up, both sides are working to get their info out. There will be a forum on the subject at 5:30 pm on Monday, Sept 10 at the Alpine Ponderosa Room at Rushmore Plaza Civic Center.

And yesterday, I received the mailer below from Cabela’s.
