Letter: Appreciating the work of police
I was running late Friday morning bringing my 15-year-old to school at Sheyenne High School and the cops were standing at one entrance and one exit of the high school drop off. I thought, ‘Here we go, tickets for no seat belts.’ As usual, there's that moment of no return...

Letter: AG should drop charges in Knodel case
Enough is enough. Within a mere 40 minutes of deliberation, the jury for the Aaron Knodel trial voted unanimously to acquit the defendant of 3 charges—11 of those honest jurors publicly stated they voted “not guilty” on all five at that time. If it were not for one juror,...

Letter: Time is running out
In the flurry that is the end of the legislative session, there exists a dread of being overlooked. Time is running out, money is being allocated and, the reality is, some constituencies/issues get lost in the shuffle. Thankfully for North Dakota taxpayers, this session,...

Letters: Rail safety needed
The issue of rail safety and North Dakota is not new. Since the Bakken began booming, communities large and small couldn’t help but notice the uptick in black oil train cars moving through the epicenters and outlying corners of their townships, cities and farmland. At first they...

Letter: Hoeven helps undermine Obama, national security
Sen. John Hoeven was part of a disturbing letter to the Islamic Republic of Iran. That letter has the implication as to what our president can and can’t do. To undermine the president of the United States in this manner was irresponsible and borders on more serious charges. The...

Letter: Don’t give water resource district a blank check
With spring comes the fear of flooding once again, however, this time it isn’t coming from Mother Nature, rather the fear is coming from the Cass County Joint Water Resource District in its recent mailing. Make no mistake about it; if you vote for this, you are committing your...

Letter: Thanks to Hoeven for calling out Obama on Iran
Although we are facing large reductions in revenue, I am confident that the Legislature and the governor will deal with our situation in a responsible way. I wish I could say that for our federal government, especially in the area of national security. From the start of my political...

Letter: Public defense attorneys deserve praise, funding
