Our View: Measure 8: ‘Yes’ on later school start
Seldom has there been a more successful grassroots effort to affect change than Measure 8 on the November ballot, the initiative to require that public school classes start after Labor Day. It’s been parent-driven from the start. It’s underfunded (if funded at all). It’s opposed...

Our View: Vote ‘no’ on conservation fund
The sentiment behind Measure 5, the Clean Water, Wildlife & Parks constitutional amendment is sound. Preserving and enhancing the state’s outdoor places are good ideas. However, the method by which amendment supporters would indulge that sentiment is a recipe for an administrative...

Our View: Measure 3: ‘No’ on change for higher ed
A measure on the North Dakota ballot that would radically change governance of the university system is an overreaction to a recent rough patch for the State Board of Higher Education. Measure 3, which would professionalize and politicize higher education, should be turned back. The...

Our View: Voters should return Cramer to House
North Dakotans should return Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer to a second term in the U.S. House of Representatives. He’s earned it by virtue of his work ethic and his responsiveness to the people of his state. Cramer’s opponent, Democratic state Sen. George Sinner of Fargo, is a...

Our View: Legislative tour a good idea, but needs expansion
Earlier this week, a group of influential North Dakotans — many from the eastern side of the state — boarded a 40-seat stagecoach and took a two-day tour of the so-called “Wild West.” Well, what really happened is a group of 40 state legislators took a bus ride through the...

Our View: Opportunity can’t be tabled
You can either pretend a boom isn’t happening, or you can accept it and try to grow with it. One has to wonder if the Belfield City Council is trying its best to adapt to development in western North Dakota or if it is simply flipping the page without giving it so much as a glance. Why...
