Letter: Reducing state income tax attractive on paper, not reality
Some legislators want to reduce the North Dakota state income tax rate to zero, virtually eliminating the income tax as a source of revenue for our state. North Dakotans have been justifiably proud of a balanced tax structure, with income taxes, sales taxes and property taxes. Each...

Letter: Country Of Origin Labeling (COOL) needed for oil and gas
I, for one, am very grateful for the drop in oil/gas prices, even though it is having a negative effect on the region I live in. I live in North Dakota, the No. 2 state in the nation for oil production, which has been growing in leaps and bounds.

Letter: Abolishing property tax the only solution
I’m sure by now everyone has received their property tax statements. Doesn’t it give you a warm, wonderful feeling when you see how much more they are confiscating from us … again? It sure does me. It’s making me so warm, I’m hot boiling mad! Isn’t it amazing how they...

Letter: ‘Nokota’ horse owners only in it for money
Lauren Donovan, I am surprised by your article on the Nokota horses. After all the times you spoke to my dad, Tom Tescher, about the truth of the horses, you still write that they are Nokota horses. My dad did the history on these horses, as you well know. He could trace them back...

Letter: Kemp’s column misses the point about New York Times article
I am writing in response to the column by John Kemp printed in your paper. His article was in response to The New York Times article “The Downside of the Boom.” He criticizes the Times’ article for only telling part of the story and not mentioning the positive impact the boom...

Letter: Tell Republicans you expect answers on immigration
President Barack Obama said in 2011: “There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply, through executive order, ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate...

Letter: Without the raise, personal budgets just don’t pencil out
Dear Dickinson Public School Board, I must first state: my opinions are my own and in no way associated with anyone else. My mother is a teacher. My husband is a teacher, as well as many of our friends, and they reside in our community. I am the mother of a child who has a wonderful...

Letter: What is the legacy we want to leave?
I have read and watched the local and national news the last few weeks and have wondered what has happened to us? I cannot believe how people are acting and the things they are doing. Who would have thought that (so-called) reputable people would mishandle public donated funds? Who...

Letter: Commend Press for reporting on DSU Foundation issues
I commend The Dickinson Press for reporting on the Dickinson State University Foundation’s apparent mismanagement and illegal funding activities. As a former resident I too am shocked by this illegality, but also gladdened that the foundation’s board of directors are being taken...

Letter: LED flashing stop signs would be helpful in Dickinson
On our way to Grand Forks, we went through a town that had LED flashing stop signs. Wouldn’t it be great if Dickinson would put these up until people learn where the new signs are? After a few months, they could be replaced with normal signs as people get used to the location. Gee...
