West Fargo needs crossing guard program
As a mother I tend to worry more than I rightfully should about my son and his well being, and I will admit that my worries aren't always of utmost importance. Sometimes I worry about irrational things as I'm sure all mothers do, but I have always felt that my child was safe crossing...

A great leader was lost, will be missed
I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former Rep. William (Bill) Kretschmar this week. He will be greatly missed. Rep. Kretschmar or "Kretsch" as he was known to many of his friends and colleagues was long referred to as the "Dean of the House" of Representatives in North...

Letter: What is happening to our once great city?
Another disappointment with the decisions made by the leadership of West Fargo. One has to wonder who will be put on administrative leave or be terminated next. Placing Greg Warren on administrative leave is the most unbelievable front page news anyone could imagine.

Money speaks louder than health
I would like to commend our North Dakota legislators who voted in support of BreatheND. Lawmakers had some of the strongest push back from SB 2024 than any other bill presented this session. Hours of testimony applauding the agencies successes, emails, calls, and letters to the editors...

Ex-Tobacco users want BreatheND to stay
I started smoking when I was 13, and was a two-pack-a-day smoker for many years. I watched both my grandfathers die from smoking, and several aunts and uncles. Last year I had part of my left lung removed after recurring lung disease. Quitting smoking was one of the most difficult...

Hoeven, Cramer got it wrong

Legislators should support public health
I'm looking forward to an impactful career in public health while I work towards a Master's in Public Health at North Dakota State University. My professors there have opened my eyes to the incredible benefits local public health units bring to our communities.
