Letter to the Editor: Time has come to end second-hand smoke
The time has come! The time has come to rectify decades of the unhealthy practice of smoking in public places. Forever, non-smokers have had to endure the stench and life threatening effects of secondhand smoke. Years ago we put up with smoke in bars, restaurants, on planes, and...

Letter to the Editor: Decision time in North Dakota
It's decision time in North Dakota. Soon, voters will decide not only who will represent us in the United States Senate, but perhaps who will control the United States Senate. With that in mind, there are a few simple things we should all consider before going to the polls. This...

Letter to the Editor: Gulleson strong farm advocate
I'm tired of Kevin Cramer's negative campaign messages. By attacking Pam Gulleson and her family for struggling to make ends meet, Kevin Cramer just hit a new low. I grew up on a North Dakota farm and I know very well about the challenges we faced. It is true that Pam Gulleson's family...

Letter to the editor: Consider using
North Dakota is rich in natural gas but low gas prices are causing oil companies that are pumping in North Dakota to burn it instead of collect and sell it because it is simply more cost efficient. Extraction is currently at a net loss for them. When a rig goes in the ground, natural...
