Letter: Get something ‘constructive done’
I read Governor Burgum “announces task force to examine higher education governance”. Somehow it seems that all North Dakotan’s have been to that rodeo maybe two or three times.

In school, we are all taught how our government works. Congressional hearings are held to consider a bill's effects. Experts are brought in and testimony is given so that all sides are heard from, and then the bill's merits are debated. The more important the bill, the longer this...

Letter: Technology can never replace relationship between students and teacher
Governor Burgum's recent comments about increasing the use of technology in the classroom raise serious concerns about the direction of education policy and practice in North Dakota. The education of our children is too important to be subjected to the latest tech fad or a business...

LETTER: Property tax facts ‘ambiguous’ and ‘mind boggling’
I read the editorial “Property Tax Facts from local representatives.” Perhaps a better name for the article would be “Property Tax, making everybody feel good while giving them the shaft.” Their facts seem to be ambiguous and mind boggling.

Letter to the Editor: Life-changing events deserve special circumstances

Opinion: Tragic Veto of Carbon Monoxide Bill by Governor Burgum
