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: Transfer road to the state
Recently an enjoyable ride was taken on the newly completed and paved South Heart Road. The road takes you through the Green River Valley past some Badlands area, and in the Northern Reaches prairie covered hills in Ranch Country. In addition the pioneer, historic Hutmacher Homestead...

LETTER: Be thankful
As Thanksgiving nears, I want to communicate something important that we have learned as we are working through the process of the Bush Foundation Community Innovation project. Dickinson has added 10,000 new residents. The majority of those residents are young families. Between...

LETTER: Charlie Creek Wind Farm may hurt the landscape
One of the things all of us in Western ND appreciate on a daily basis is our beautiful landscape, our view shed, brilliant sunrise and spectacular sunsets. Billings County has arguably some of the most unique and spectacular landscape in our entire country. So why would we want...

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...

LETTER: Ross is the right choice
Stark County citizens deserve better leadership than the current commissioners seeking to be reelected. On the very controversial wind farm issue Jay Elkin voted four times. He voted YES, NO, NO and finally YES. Elkin voted NO for a wind farm proposed for his neighborhood and YES...

Governor candidate: Focus on public education first
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.

Letter: Measure 4 doesn't have enough specifics
There are many things about Measure 4 that concern me. One of them is that the spending programs, which are very vaguely described, are locked in for seven years. So what happens if there are problems? What if there is actual fraud or abuse or waste?

LETTER: Who is "Vote Right 36?"
Have you noticed in the paper the District 36 Democrats have gone negative? At least I think they are Democrats. Their ads don't say they are Democrats, but rather something called "Vote Right District 36." Normally we have right-wing Republicans and left-wing Democrats, so why aren't...

Letter: An inconvenient truth for ND Democrats
Democratic leaders and candidates across the state maintain that during the last legislative session North Dakota Republicans gave "big oil" a tax break that is costing the state millions of dollars each month in revenue. Here's an inconvenient truth! For seventy legislative days...

Letter: Government needs to get out of 'sin tax' business
It is my intention in writing this editorial so that all citizens can read this in all North Dakota newspapers. Citizens, please vote "no" on Measure 4 in the upcoming state measure voting. Slam the door shut to government control! It is nothing but a scam. But more importantly, a...
