Publisher’s Response

Fargo Phantom is a collaboration of local professionals, financial advisors, entrepreneurs, educators, physicians, farmers and what many may refer to as a “crackpot.”

All writers have selected a “Phantom Name” due to the controversial content and editorial mission of the publication. The decision was made to help protect their professional standings in the community.

This underground newspaper is dedicated to seeking truth and justice and revitalizing the role of the free press as a guardian of liberty. We remain faithful to the traditional and central role of a free press in a free society – as a light exposing wrongdoing, corruption and abuse of power. This is why we are not accepting advertising for this venture. This is why we have assembled a arsenal of writers from all walks of life and income status.

Fargo Phantom is also designed to stimulate a free-and-open debate about political ideas facing the Red River Valley. Through educating and advocacy, we will continue to promote democracy. One constant motivation is the old-fashioned notion that the principal role of the free press in a free society is to serve as a watchdog on government - to expose corruption, fraud, waste and abuse wherever and whenever it is found.

Mattern says West Fargo golf course No Golf Course


FARGO - A proposal to build West Fargo’s first golf course is “probably not going to move forward” anytime soon, Mayor Rich Mattern said today.

Mattern made his remarks during the fifth annual State of the Cities forum, hosted by the Chamber of Commerce of Fargo Moorhead at Fargo’s Ramada Plaza Suites.

An audience member asked Mattern through the emcee when they could make their first tee time at the West Fargo golf course.

“Well, if you’re polishing your golf clubs to go golfing in West Fargo, I would put that back in the bag,” Mattern said.

“Right now, if I had to say is it going to be built or not, I would say not,” he continued. “And I take some of the blame for that, I think, and the developer. We didn’t get the best of information out there when we should have, and it wasn’t presented very well, and the economy is not the best.”

City leaders approved an agreement with Westport Beach Development Corp. in December to build an 18-hole golf course on the city’s south side. Under the agreement, the developer would donate the land, but the city would be responsible for operating and maintaining the course.

City officials project the course will cost $6.7 million to build. The city approved a $500,000 contract in December with Lehman Design Group of Scottsdale, Ariz., to design the course, which would be surrounded by a housing development.

The proposal has been a hot topic in West Fargo, with critics arguing the city has more pressing needs than a golf course. Several hundred people attended a public forum Feb. 17 to discuss the proposal.

Mattern said he doesn’t believe the project has been nixed for good.

“I still think it’s a great project, and it’s a win-win for everyone,” he said. “But the people for the most part, I think, have said that right now they don’t want it. And so if they don’t want it, that’s the way it’ll be.

“But right now, I think it’s probably not going to move forward.”
