West Fargo needs crossing guard program

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.
