LETTER: Leave imaginary commerce to your imaginary friends
The Bitcoin: An idea based on nothing promoted by people that want your US currency. How gullible have we gotten? How far from reality must we be to believe someone’s idea of replacing physical currencies with an imaginary one can actually work?

Letter: Tufte right for ND Supreme Court
When I heard Justice Dale Sandstrom was retiring at the end of the year, I immediately started thinking about who might succeed him on the North Dakota Supreme Court. The first name that came to mind was Jerod Tufte. Many friends and colleagues I talked to around the state also volunteered...

Letter: In a world full of bad news, it’s easy to forget all the good people
I want to share a few personal thoughts with everyone in southwest North Dakota. As we listen to the national news and hear about all the shootings, the terror plots of ISIS, and all the negative issues around the world, it’s easy to forget about all the good people and kind acts...

Letter: Cities, counties must avoid repeat of ’80s boom-and-bust cycle
I have read and watched the local and national news the past few weeks with interest in the oil energy industry. The industry has shown a tremendous change in its structure from one year ago. The industry in our state has lost a large amount of business and has had a large amount...

Letter: Thanks for American flag on Belfield water tower
Belfield’s new water tower displays our nation’s flag. Not the usual cloth flowing with the wind, but a “portrait,” worthy of the honor and pride of the Belfield property owner responsible for its placement there. To that property owner, I say, “thank you,” and “semper...

Letter: Planned Parenthood videos are a fraudulent ploy
Planned Parenthood has said all along that the videos at the heart of the smear campaign against them were heavily edited to deceive the public, and now expert analysis confirms it. Teams of experts in video forensics, production and transcription have determined the videos have no...

Letter: Dickinson needs to control growth in face of oil slowdown
I read The Dickinson Press article “Growth Control” in the Feb. 25 paper with great interest. In general, it states that some members of the Dickinson Planning and Zoning Board feel it is time to slow down development of new subdivisions for the city. I agree with these members...

Letter: Cramer’s words don’t match his actions
As a veteran myself, I don’t question Kevin Cramer’s sincerity when he tells our veterans how important they are to him and how much he appreciates their service. My problem is with his votes, because they are a true reflection of his rigid, extreme ideology and they are most...

Letter: Measure 1 complicated, unnecessary
I write to address a letter which appeared in the Sept. 11 Bismarck Tribune. It denied Measure 1 is a “personhood amendment.” Truth is found in North Dakota legislative records and Web archives. SCR 4009, sponsored by Margaret Sitte, placed Measure 1 on the North Dakota ballot....

Letter: Wording of Measure 1 concerning for families
I have resided in North Dakota for 38 years and the thought of Measure 1 passing is very concerning to me. I believe this measure will in fact hinder the ability for North Dakotans to make some very difficult and personal decisions due to its wording being so vague. My husband James,...

Letter: Understand the meaning behind Measure 1
Measure 1 will be on the ballot in November. It would insert language into the North Dakota Century Code (North Dakota Constitution) stating, “The inalienable right to life of any human being at any stage of development must be recognized and protected.” Measure 1 itself does...
