GFH: Conrad-led commission: Save America’s golden years
GRAND FORKS -- Besides its wheat, sunflowers and new bounty of Bakken oil, North Dakota produces something else: notable moderates on the national scene. In the U.S. Senate, both John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp are among the senators most willing to work across the aisle. And this...

GFH: Too little enforcement of Bakken wastewater rules
Sure, compliance is better than enforcement when it comes to environmental law, as the North Dakota Department of Health declares. When oil drillers ship their product without spilling it and safely dispose of fracking wastewater and other byproducts as well, that’s terrific. The...

Other Views: Man camps, if needed, should be welcomed, not fought
As Williston preps for its expected move next month to ban man camps, Grand Forks should pay attention. That’s because man camps likely loom in Grand Forks’ future, too. If construction of a fertilizer plant gets the go-ahead and construction workers by the hundreds start to pour...

Other Views: Shame on oil-tax reformers for greasing skids
One side says North Dakota will be better off with stabilized, more predictable oil extraction taxes. The other side says that stability would come at an unfathomable price: potentially, multiple billions of forgone tax dollars over the decades, meaning multiple highways that won’t...

Other Views: Don’t disparage pipeline construction jobs
With pipeline projects come jobs. It’s just plain logic that many people — maybe thousands of people — will be needed to build them. Yet we constantly hear that pipelines won’t be as economically lucrative as some believe, because many of the associated jobs will be “temporary.” We...

Other Views: Enhanced driver’s license enhances recreation options
Grand Forks already benefits from Canadian shoppers, who continue to pour across the border in great numbers. In contrast, comparatively few North Dakotans drive north. So, why should North Dakota bother to create an enhanced driver’s license or EDL to better enable northbound...
