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: What would Jesus recycle?
I was thrilled when I read that Dickinson is considering curbside recycling. As a Christian, a parent, a citizen, a pastor and an inhabitant of this earth, I commend the City Commission and those who are involved with bringing this important issue forward. I hope and pray this will...

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...

Letter: Dakota Access Pipeline provides short- and long-term benefits
The Dakota Access Pipeline, a 450,000 barrels-per-day pipeline now under construction, will stretch from the Bakken to Illinois daily and will be a large benefit to North Dakota’s economy, its workers, and its taxpayers. The pipeline will become one of the state’s major taxpayers....

Letter: Stults energy article was balanced but concerning
Kalsey Stults’ article on coal, wind and natural gas was one of the most balanced articles on energy that I have read in some time. I agree with Congressman Kevin Cramer that there is a conscious effort to eliminate the use of coal. Such a policy will increase the cost of electricity...

Letter: Families of crime victims deserve rights
My brother was killed while riding his bicycle in 2008. While I feel that law enforcement did their jobs, I do not feel like others in the legal system did. I cannot do anything to bring my brother back, but if I can do something to help others for the future and ensure that people...

Letter: When it comes to electricity, am I missing something?
Am I missing something here? The coal-fired power plant in Stanton has announced they will be closing down for lack of market. They cannot produce electricity for what the market will pay. At the same time, the Public Service Commission is issuing permits for wind farms as fast as...
