Letter: City has bigger worries than a library
The letter from Jeanne Corey was perfect, she hit the nail on the head as to how people feel in town. Why did anyone offer $5 million and who did that? Shouldn’t these type of things be dealt with by running a vote? We are the taxpayers and I don’t think we need a $5 million dollar...

Letter: General aviation important to small businesses in ND
Here in North Dakota, simply traveling from town to town is very time-consuming. Distances are long here, and while those long stretches of highway provide plenty of business for my paving company, it also means managing different jobsites takes time. Additionally, we have a short...

DSU the only place for Roosevelt presidential library
