LETTER: Vote No on Measure 4
I feel that I must speak out in opposition to Measure 4, the initiated measure that would quintuple the tobacco tax in North Dakota. It is a noble goal to see smoking reduced in our state, but this isn't the way to do it. It may get a small percentage of the populace to give up...

Letter: Dickinson deserves commissioner able to make unbiased decisions
My first memories of Dickinson begin in the backseat of my grandparents’ (Jack and Judy Rustan) Buick LaSabre. My brother and I would travel from Texas to spend the summers with them. I still remember feeling of comfort as we peaked the hill just before Exit 59 — the feeling of...
