Letter: Lisbon veteran’s home an example of positivity among VA criticisms

Letter: Support the outdoors, but not the conservation amendment
Here we go again. The last constitutional conservation measure heading for the statewide ballots failed because of fraudulent signatures. Now conservation groups are working to get a similar measure back on the ballot; however, it is no less of a fraud. The Clean Water, Wildlife...

Letter: Amendment seekers can’t have it both ways with gathering signatures
You can’t have it both ways. But it looks like the supporters of the proposed Clean Water, Wildlife and Parks Amendment want exactly that. They made a promise that they were going to do things differently this time around by not paying people to gather signatures to get their measure...

On Feb. 23 an editorial was printed in the Fargo Forum related to funding being provided to western North Dakota. I would like to provide a few facts that may change the opinions expressed on the matter. The state of North Dakota returned $1.044 billion, not $2.5 billion, for several...

Letter to the Editor: Christian numbers dwindling in the Holy Land
Tis the season to be Jolly, fa la la la la, la la la la. There are 14 million Christians throughout the Holy Land but they are a rapidly dwindling minority. Many of them are so desperately vulnerable that they feel they have no choice now but to emigrate. In Iraq alone, since the...

Letter to the Editor: Natural, divine law should influence civil law
Civil law should reflect divine law and natural law in implementation. According to the Bible, God' s law is naturally written on our hearts (Rom. 2:12-16). We know that moderation in drinking and eating are important values. We know of the sins of overdoing these functions through...

Letter: ND needs to use oil-impact monies to fund teacher pay
For years I have worked in early childhood education. For years my colleagues and I have received a well-below (national) average salary. We were told that North Dakota didn't have the money and that our cost of living was lower here, so we didn't need to be better compensated. Now...

Letter to the Editor: North Dakota should take lesson from Minnesota on cigarette tax
Minnesota just raised its cigarette tax by $1.60 per pack, leaving me in envy of our neighbor's efforts to help people quit smoking. High cigarette prices and noticeable price hikes like Minnesota's recent increase prevent young people from getting hooked and help current smokers...
