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: Fridrich has skills needed for City Commission
I met candidate for Dickinson city commissioner Jason Fridrich when he was a student in my business courses at Dickinson State University. Even as a young student, it was evident that Jason would made a positive impact on DSU. He was a mentor to other students as well as a serious...

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...

Letter: Election is important to America's future
How did we, the United States of America, the greatest nation on Earth, end up with a president that trashes the Constitution in every way that he pledged to uphold and defend, and is not held accountable and people voting twice for him? Plus, the prospect of electing the first female...

Letter: Nelson only governor candidate who'll regulate oil in ND
The well-publicized clash between the opponents and proponents of Dakota Access Pipeline continued recently when some opponents made their presence known to the three gubernatorial candidates during a debate in Bismarck. As an interested voter living in western North Dakota, I have...

Letter: Choosing 'non-politically correct' Republican over deplorable Democrat
I look at the picture under a title that caught my eye in The Dickinson Press Opinion page and see a young face — that of Matthew Becker. So young, yet already an elitist establishment political snob. Trump was not my pick of the large pool of very capable Republican candidates....

Letter: Elkin has been great for Stark County
I enthusiastically encourage everyone to vote for Jay Elkin for Stark County commissioner in this November's election. Jay has performed in his present position as a county commission in a commendable manner. He represents District 5 on the Commission, serves on the Finance Board,...

Letter: BLM's duty is to protect tribes from wasting natural gas
Every day, our resources are burnt, released, or lost right in front of our eyes. Our money is literally going up in smoke. Waste of tribal resources deprives communities of royalty revenue that is vital to funding health care, education and roads. We are losing more revenue and getting...

Letter: Time to stop protester's unlawful criminal activities
As protesters against the Dakota Access Pipeline continue to unlawfully vandalize private company machinery and occupy land that they have been ordered to remain away from, my social media accounts continue to spotlight these acts of masked men and women. Not only are these people...

Letter: Dakota Access protesters hurt workers, ignore law
We ought to consider one question when it comes to who is in the right on the Dakota Access Pipeline: What if it was the other way? If the builder of Dakota Access had ignored the legal process and built the pipeline, the public would be inflamed and rightfully so. We would never...

Letter: We don’t need annual legislative session, we need term limits
Well, well, well, they’re at it again! The idea of annual sessions of the North Dkaota Legislature is once again surfacing its ugly head. Of course that liberal idea is cooked up by Democrats and RINOs (Republicans In Name Only). These people want more and bigger government. We...
