The Forum Ed Board: Age not an issue in presidential campaign

Fargo Forum Editorial Board: Angel Fund distorted by politics
It’s a mistake to politicize North Dakota’s Angel Fund, but that’s what is happening because Republican candidate for governor Doug Burgum has been involved in the fund’s investments. Recent reports revealed that out-of-state investors took advantage of the fund’s tax incentives,...

GFH: Too little enforcement of Bakken wastewater rules
Sure, compliance is better than enforcement when it comes to environmental law, as the North Dakota Department of Health declares. When oil drillers ship their product without spilling it and safely dispose of fracking wastewater and other byproducts as well, that’s terrific. The...
