Letter: Symbol of freedom should be made in USA

Letter: More thought should be put into street projects
I hope everyone in Belfield has read Resolution No. 03-09-09 "Declaring street improvements necessary" in the Dickinson Press issue of March 12 and 19. I found these articles particularly disturbing because it seems to me that the council is trying to get what they want through underhanded...

Pakistan should be priority
When the Obama administration settles on its "AfPak" strategy -- that is, Afghanistan and Pakistan -- top priority has to go to Pakistan. It's the most dangerous place on Earth: nuclear-armed, menaced by terrorists, economically in crisis and mired in political turmoil. Moreover,...

Letter: Those who know true gumbo should judge
As a transplant from the south, I must say, I really did enjoy the gumbo cook-off. It was a fun event, no doubt. I fully understand that it was for a good cause, too. However, I must vent. Having lived in the south my entire life, I have never seen yellow gumbo. Nor have I seen...

Letter - Taxpayers should decide lawmaker pay hikes
Here we go again. You can sure tell when it's time when the legislators are getting ready to meet. The Legislative Compensation Commission is proposing giving lawmakers a pay raise. First, it should be up to the taxpayer whose money it is, to give any raises of any kind. While in...

Judge says traffic fines issue shouldn't linger
FARGO -- A federal judge said Friday he won't grant class action status to a lawsuit over illegal traffic fines issued by the city of Fargo if it's only going to turn into a "boondoggle" of expenses that leaves little money to be returned to those who paid the fines. U.S.
