Other views: ND pulls a reversal, gets younger
North Dakota has acquired a youthful swagger that still registers as a happy case of demographic whiplash for a state that not long ago was wringing its hands over the mass exodus of its young people. During much of the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s, North Dakota suffered a prolonged bout...

Other views: Lost value going up in flames
Now maybe North Dakota finally will get serious about curbing the enormous waste spewed every day from the fiery stacks of natural gas wells dotting the prairie like industrial birthday candles. The state's regulators and politicians have dithered and wrung their hands while flaring...

Other views: Independence gets Cramer noticed
An emerging coalition of "pragmatists" could be key to Washington governance, said Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., last week. Many of them hail from the Midwest, the geographic center of the nation that also has tended to favor practical politicians. In Minnesota, Democratic Rep. Collin...

ND stands at outdoor crossroad
North Dakota is at a crossroad. The direction the state takes might have as momentous and lasting impact as the great trends that shaped the state from the beginning: agriculture, drought, energy and more recently a diversifying urban economy. Decisions -- private and public -- made...

Our View: $113 million event center not what community needs
There is reality, there are dreams and there are pipe dreams. The reality is Stark County needs a fairgrounds and a new rodeo arena. The dream is to build a multi-purpose facility that can be used as an all-encompassing site for the Roughrider Days Fair, rodeo, carnival and all of...

Other views: Education focuses on principals
North Dakotans should not be surprised that Gov. Jack Dalrymple is again hip-deep in an important public education discussion. From his days at the Legislature to his service as governor, Dalrymple has put education at the top of his to-do list. That history goes back to the work...

Other views: Cory Fong among North Dakota's best
Some North Dakota Democrats have short memories. When Republican Tax Commissioner Cory Fong submitted his resignation to the governor earlier this week, Chad Oban, executive director of the North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party, couldn't resist lobbing a cheap shot. Oban said Fong's decision...

Other views: Blame for shutdown belongs to select lawmakers
The Lincoln Memorial is swathed in police-line tape, national parks are closed from the Everglades in Florida to Mount Denali in Alaska, and an estimated 800,000 federal employees have packed up potted plants and gone home indefinitely. So who's to blame? Is it the group of roughly...

As U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer mulls how to respond to the government shutdown and debt-ceiling crises, he should remember something: He's not like other Republicans in the House. Other Republicans in the House -- a great many of them, anyway, especially the most conservative members...

In an ideal world, elements of the Affordable Health Care Act ("Obamacare"), including health exchanges that go up and running today, would be delayed or scrapped. It's not going to happen. Therefore, the best option for individuals and families is to access information to help negotiate...

Today's auction in Wishek of wild horses from North Dakota's Badlands has attracted national attention. It is likely buyers from several states and possibly Canada will descend on the small McIntosh County town for the sale of some 100 horses that have been culled from the herd in...
