Brock: Oil tax revenue split has to change to favor impacted areas
I tried to imagine sitting down at the kitchen table to discuss household finances, and I began by stating our budget this year is probably going to be about 10 times higher than usual. After reviving my spouse with smelling salts, I would calmly explain that there are just a lots...

Brock: Do you remember bag phones and phone booths?
Technology has greatly improved our lives. Still, there are some technologies worth celebrating and others that, looking back, you think if I knew then what you know … maybe not so much. Recently while visiting a museum, I came across a phone booth and a bag phone on display. There...

Brock: Remember who violates open meeting laws when you vote
There are few things that get this old fat guy hopping mad, largely because I don’t hop near as well as I did 30 years ago. Lately, what has me contemplating leaving the ground is when universities, school boards, city and county governments violate open meeting and record laws....

Brock: CanArtopia returns to help Food Pantry
There are some things that shouldn’t be a problem in America — and even less so in booming western North Dakota. Topping that list is hunger. There are many social services to feed the hungry, and still some of our neighbors go to sleep hungry. Many are working, but the area’s...

Brock: Welcome to Dickinson, where the golden rule applies
I moved to Dickinson almost seven years ago. Like many of the folks moving here I, too, did so for employment. Unlike many that are moving here today, I had visited Dickinson and knew about the great quality of life here on the Western Edge. When folks ask me where I’m from, I...

Brock: Where did my summer go?
What the heck happened? I went to sleep on May 15, woke up yesterday morning and it was the first day of August. I feel like I’m in a “Twilight Zone” episode. One minute I fall asleep, dreaming of soaking up summer sun and enjoying all the great things about summer in North...

Brock: A visit with four of the many men moving to Dickinson
While waiting outside for the oil to get changed in the company car on what was a beautiful summer day last week, I struck up a conversation with four other guys who were also waiting for their vehicles. They told me their names, but those are less important than who they were, where...

Brock: ‘Back in the day’ memories
I still can’t believe 40-years ago in June I graduated from high school, and it is not the type of thing you celebrate like a 10-year or 20-year reunion. Recently, I heard someone describing how things were in high school 10-years ago beginning with the phrase “back in the day.”...

Brock: Looking back on the class of 1974
Scores of folks will line up to watch the annual Roughrider Days parade on Saturday. It’ll include the floats of class reunions. I have never attended a class reunion in large part because I moved so far away and partly because I’m not sure it is legally safe to return to the...

Brock: My wife’s dachshund dog, Pressley
Admitting you own a dachshund is not an easy thing for a man to do, so I have always told folks Pressley is my wife’s dog. I am quick to tell folks that I own Griff, a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon bird dog ugly enough and pretty stupid, but an acceptable masculine working hound....

Brock: Visiting the Big Apple
Last week, my wife and I made our first visit to the East Coast, including New York City. Whoever coined the term “Melting Pot” to describe our county must have been in the Big Apple at the time. There were people from all over the world, each speaking a different language that...
