Letter: Residents’ interests weren’t represented at pipeline meeting
What does it say about a situation when residents don’t even show up to a hearing in their community? In my experience, it means residents have been so ignored to this point they’ve quit attempting to reason with interests that refuse to represent their own. I must say, I can...

Letter: Reitan’s actions regarding employees aren’t consistent
In the Jan. 6 issue of the West Fargo Pioneer, there was an article about a West Fargo police officer who had been arrested for DUI. Any time a law enforcement officer is arrested for a crime, it is a very serious matter. Unfortunately, Chief Mike Reitan doesn’t think so. He is...

Letter: CodeRED system efficient, effective warning tool
