LETTER: ND Farm Bureau can still do the right thing

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: 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...
