It starting to look like our unique salebarn. It's hard to explain

or Monday (Dec.21). The water line is coming along nicely. soon we will be able to get inside and get our kitchen done.

I have a meeting with the county commissioners on Sept 22nd. will post and let you know how everything went and how
soon we can be and running.
My meeting yesterday ,Aug. 27th,with the
states attorney and planning and zoning was another learning experience for all of us. Not exactly how I'd like it to
go. But I also have to remind my self that this is all new to Moody county. I am seeing things from the experience and background
of our unique salebarn and they are seeing the paperwork and rules and regulations they have for the county fitting me into
a category that to them looks like where I should fit into. This reminds me... of back into 2009 when we switched state vets. He was seeing things from the angle of his job position,
and of course I was seeing things from our unique salebarn. We are like no other. So threw the years and all the trials,
I can say we have the best working relationship.(lol from what I've been told, he didn't think we would ever get alone).
We are so unique and so different for a salebarn. We cater towards your small acreage people. That with one stop, you can
get whatever kind of animal and misc. you like. We are also so proud of the family like setting that is so important to us.
We hope if you come for the first time as a stranger, that you come back the next time as a friend. EVERYBODY IS SOMEBODY
We're getting there, it just all takes time and getting to understand each others reasoning
I'd like to start out by thanking each and every
one of you that was there with us or thinking of us yesterday morning. The salebarn sold for $201,000.00 to Law Motors..
We pushed it about as far as we should of. So with that said. We are very proud to announce that we will be carrying on Mom
and Dads Legacy. Only we will be up west of Colman a few miles. ( 35 miles straight North of the salebarn). As I was driving
home last night( after going to watch my daughter barrel ra...ce
by Larchwood IA.) I was able to have some quiet time to reflex on all of yesterday's happenings and to which direction
we are now heading. My thoughts of not being able to buy the sale barn property- That was a dream of Dads and Moms- which
has filtered down the generations as we grew to love the business and the customers. The dream is still there, Only now this
is our dream and this dream is going to be in a new location that we have room to grow and expand as we need to. We will have
a building that will be much warmer in the winter, plenty of parking, plenty of room to ride them horses to show them off.
a better set up for our poultry, we'll have hanging gates, the café will have a nice set up, office- well ????.
We are open to any suggestions, comments- good or bad. We do have a sale August 1st.
This Morning was a meeting with the county commissioners in moody county about a conditional use permit to built
our salebarn. The meeting was open to the public/ neighbors to address there concerns. I did have 4 neighbors there. 2 were
just concerned about there land/ property because they are avid hunters and that is what they use there land for. the other
2. Well lets just say, we can call the kettle black. because the one that was concerned about livestock getting out, a...nd diseases, while his is always out on the roads in
his summer pasture and he is also the one that shot my pig for going up to his place instead of being a neighbor and calling
me to tell me my pig was coming to his place, and than dumping her down the road in the bull ditch. The other one, WELL, the
only thing she could come up with was the nuisance violation that is at the salebarn. When I reminded her that her motor home
was also part of the violation and also that all dads stuff sitting around there that we are not allowed to move or sale is
also part of the violation. Her only comeback was the motor home was licensed. which in Minnehaha county, it has to be runnable,
which a lot of us know that it wasn't because of the blown motor. And if it were runnable, how come the cameras have it
recorded being hooked on to and pulled out of there by a gray/ silver pickup. And the only other thing they could come up
with is there might be diseases floating down the bull ditch on there property.
The Highway maintenance guy was also
there. His input/ concern was the extra maintenance/ grading that may need to be done.
I go back in to meet with the
county commissioners on Aug. 4th. it will not be open to public. I will find out than what my restrictions/ conditions that
I will have to follow. We have talked about a good fence- chain linked around the outside to keep any animals that possibly
but hopefully never exscapes. about putting in another driveway just north of mine. I do have my building permit so we can
start ground work.
So all in all, I would say it went really well. Aug. 4th I will have more answers. I do know that
if we are going to have this salebarn up and running by Sept.15th, we will need as much volunteer help as possibly in all
areas of getting this up and going. So with that said, Please let Myself, Ashley or Nick know.
THANKS, CINDY KRAMER
Met with the Moody County Commissioners Yesterday. Aug. 4th(Sorry
I run a pretty wild schedule, I know every one is waiting to hear how it went.) We have one more meeting Sept. 1st ( if I
can get everything Submitted in time,) I have to fill out a application for a Conditional use Permit for a Class D Concentrated
Animal Feeding Operation. This type of operation, meaning a salebarn is new to Moody County and we are all learning as we
move forward to what all steps need to be taken. s...o
hopefully we will have all paperwork covered and get the 100% go ahead Sept. 1.
Thank you all for being so patient
Ok so from what I am told and understand at this time, we will not be able to do household auctions like I
wanted to, because of the Land being zoned AG. only AG related. I will keep checking on what other options we will have.
I will keep you updated on our progress, Cindy K
Thank you in advance. You are all so wonderful.
EVERYBODY IS SOMEBODY AT
