Letter to the Editor: Life-changing events deserve special circumstances
An existential crisis occurs whenever a life-changing event brings to one's awareness the basic issues of life in a way that makes them sharper and more acute; and consequently, many things seem to be much more of a life-and-death struggle, as time itself seems to loom larger and...

Opinion: Tragic Veto of Carbon Monoxide Bill by Governor Burgum
The veto of a carbon monoxide bill this week by Governor Douglas Burgum was a tragic choice that will result in the injury and death of innocent citizens of North Dakota that could otherwise have been prevented. All this bill did was give the same protection to renters that homeowners...

LETTER: Support DSU's nursing program
This letter is to support retention of funding for the Dickinson State University budget, specifically for the Department of Nursing. Should DSU have to decrease its budget by >20%, the Nursing education programs would be in jeopardy. This letter is supported by past Professors...

Churches respond to political cartoon Last Wednesday’s edition of the Dickinson Press included a somewhat bewildering political cartoon out of Fargo. The cartoon depicted renowned white supremacist, Craig Cobb, being influenced by the devil to take advantage of a church’s strong...

LETTER: ND Farm Bureau can still do the right thing
This past June, voters stood up for family farmers by rejecting changes to the 84 year old anti-corporate farming law in our great state. Seventy-five percent voted to continue the long held tradition to support families who work, live and support our state's economy and reject corporate...

LETTER: Where is the outrage of real native problems?
The day will come when the DAPL project will either be completed or mothballed. If completed it will likely be after President Obama can no longer pad Warren Buffet's wallet by delaying or blocking the movement of oil by pipeline as opposed to rail.

LETTER: Keep tax money in public schools
Are you voting to build new schools this fall? Are you voting to give your tax money to private schools? People seem not to realize it but that is on the ballot under the Governor's race. My opponent is saying we should build new charter and private schools to compete with our...

LETTER: Vote No on Measure 4
I feel that I must speak out in opposition to Measure 4, the initiated measure that would quintuple the tobacco tax in North Dakota. It is a noble goal to see smoking reduced in our state, but this isn't the way to do it. It may get a small percentage of the populace to give up...
