HUMBOLDT ? Some economic development projects can take a while.

Herder was one of several dignitaries to speak at the groundbreaking, which featured executives from Murphy, Monarch Cement Co. (which owns and will lease the land to Murphy), Dondlinger Construction, as well as Humboldt and Allen County officials.
