A big Republican talking point is "run government like a business." Many people buy into this idea, but I haven't seen any commitment to it from our Republican leaders. Recently, there have been a slew of health care bills brought forward with no input from healthcare providers, businesses,...

Summer is here but not all seasons are over
We are in the transition stage or rather already transitioned from the school sports calendar to the summer sports calendar. With that comes a bit of a lull and a few months of trying to put things in this "school of thought" column.

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...

Trade policy big for North Dakota
At a recent CoBank meeting in Fargo in was clearly documented that a free trade policy is a must for North Dakota agriculture. Our rural economy is based on trade. No simplistic political solution by our congressional delegation will be a panacea for our North Dakota farmers. Globalization...

West Fargo has started their nationwide search for a new Police Chief. Good luck finding a qualified applicant willing to take the position. I think that they have forgotten about an insignificant little invention called the internet. What happened in West Fargo most certainly did...
