Our View: Build the Roosevelt Library on DSU’s campus

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...

Our View: Mr. President, it’s time to come to North Dakota

Other Views: Good call on special session
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,...

Our View: What’s best for our children?
Why plan for now when you can plan for the future? The recommendation made Monday by DLR Group to the Dickinson Public School Board to build a middle school instead of a high school made at least one board member question the proposal. The engineering group, which has worked countless...

Our View: Public information officer will help city’s construction chaos
Contrary to popular belief, there are actually four seasons in North Dakota: fall, spring, winter and construction. Two words you never would have put together five years ago were Dickinson and traffic. Dickinson is growing at an incredible pace and there is no sign that it is going...

Monke: Enough is enough with Keystone XL
I’ve always wondered about the people who protest certain topics. Are they really that upset? Does everything rile them up that much? Does somebody pay these people to protest? Is this their job? Lately, every time there is political movement on the Keystone XL pipeline, there’s...

Bakken: New, desirable norm with tobacco
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...

Zaleski: How easily we buy into scams
Modern marketing is so effective that it fools people into buying into a lot of nonsense. By "buying into," I mean literally buying. We demand more information about the food we eat, and we get it. Providers of the information, corporate or government, happily bamboozle us newly "educated"...

A billion here, a billion there ... And pretty soon, you're talking about the Alaska Permanent Fund, which reached a new high of about $45 billion at the end of March. North Dakota may have topped Alaska in oil production, but North Dakota's oil tax "Legacy Fund" has a long way to...
