Other Views: Hess drills; finds gusher of talent
For a government-run institution that critics say is on its last legs, about to implode, failing at its core mission and facing all manner of other ills, the North Dakota University System sure draws a lot of capitalist support. Case in point: Thursday’s announcement of the Hess...

A cellphone privacy decision by the U.S. Supreme Court sends a strong message that technology will not undermine protections guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The court said police must obtain a warrant to search for information on a suspect’s cellphone....

Our View: Build the Roosevelt Library on DSU’s campus
Every school kid in North Dakota is taught how important Theodore Roosevelt was to our state and nation. Roosevelt was a hero of the Spanish-American War after leading his Rough Riders to victory in the Cuba. At just 42 years old, he became the youngest person to be inaugurated as...

Our View: Don’t forget to go vote today, because it counts
We are all busy these days, especially here in our growing western North Dakota, but we all need to put the coffee cup down and leave for a few minutes early this morning for work so you can vote on your way. Can’t do it this morning? Do it at lunch or on your way home, but find...

Other Views: North Dakota jobs are amazing
North Dakotans have gotten used to monthly employment statistics that rank the state first in job creation in the nation, and for having the lowest unemployment rate among the states. It’s a remarkable achievement, driven not only by obvious job growth in the Oil Patch but also...

North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple made the right call when he declined to call a special session of the Legislature to address needs in communities impacted by the Bakken oil boom. Several Democratic legislative leaders had urged the governor to convene the assembly in May. Dalrymple,...

Usually, cultural change in North Dakota starts in the bigger cities and seeps down to less populated towns. That isn't necessarily the case when it comes to tobacco, however. Earlier this year, Cooperstown, a town of about 1,000 people in Griggs County, passed a tobacco ban in...
