You sound lazy
I thought it was a little weird that he said he started the harvester to give back to iowans and give them something to be proud of. Then when talking about membership for the new and improved "private" club, he basically said his main membership targets were rich people from other states.
Didn't it open in 2000? 18 years of giving and sounds like people didn't appreciate it or value what they had.
Thanks, you sound like.... you believe the giant ice ball theory.
Does that have something to do with Empire Strikes Back?
I wholeheartedly second both of these sentiments....not to mention his open willingness to take countless amounts of government subsidies by relocating low income mothers from Chicago & conveniently transplanting them into his empty apartment complexes throughout the county, as he has suggested was part of his Christian duty to help these poor, single mothers. Not saying this has led directly to the increase in crime but it certainly hasn't helped the situation as the generally troubled fathers have inevitably followed.
On a personal note, when the man continuously comes knocking on my parents door as my father is in the final months of his life & stating that they can either sell their acreage to him now at his 'extremely generous' offer or he'll get it for next to nothing when the old man finally dies, it tells me all I need to know about his morals & ethics. Again & again, he was politely asked to leave the property & cease with his overtures until finally the local police kindly asked Dickson to end the 'harassing' - guess it helps to have lived in the same town for nearly 50 years. Now that my brother has taken over the farm/acreage, Dickson has only made a few attempts to swoop in but either way, the man had already done a wonderful job of 'expanding' the Huxley community by, as FarminCy noted, aggressively blocking or circumventing legal parameters but has added no real value to the community whatsoever. Seems like he's more than happy to be a greedy scourge rather than actually doing productive things to help a town grow.
Some may appreciate the money (inheritance & 'development) he drops on Iowa State but I would be more than happy if he squandered the remainder & got served a steaming plate of karma.
sounds like dickson is a douche bag.
I didn’t even know about the rest of the stuff. I just know he tries to get 7th grade girls to quit all sports so he can get them to play for him year round. He is a douche bag.
Don’t know anything about the man, but there seems to be a lot of one side of the story teaming up on here. Part of message boards and social media I guess, but not one of the fonder ones in my mind. Sometimes certain things make it too easy to vilify people.
Wasn't he buds with Leath? If I remmember he may have taken some flights with him....he was probably bummed when he left town.
I can't speak for others on here but I was merely compelled to state facts & truth based on personal experiences our family had w/the man as well as the interactions he had w/the community my parents were actively involved in & called home for a half century.
Either way, he certainly had his reasons for continuously badgering a dying man to sell him our pristine tract of farmland, timber, lake, barns, & home for next to nothing w/the usual parting shot of 'I'll have it eventually, and for much less than I'm offering now'.
It’s not social media that makes it easy to vilify Dickson. He does a damn good job of it himself.
We've thought about buying a lot at the harvester for a future house . That's all I know. Can someone explain what's going on out there for me?
Hope you aren't planning on golfing there.
