Letter to the editor: A special thanks to teachers
As we prepare to open the first middle school built in Dickinson, we would like to publicly thank the staff of Berg Elementary and Hagen Junior High. When the public voted to approve a bond with overwhelming support, these teachers reacted first with gratitude. These individuals...

LETTER: Property tax facts ‘ambiguous’ and ‘mind boggling’
I read the editorial “Property Tax Facts from local representatives.” Perhaps a better name for the article would be “Property Tax, making everybody feel good while giving them the shaft.” Their facts seem to be ambiguous and mind boggling.

LETTER: Stand up for the flag
Parade season is here once again. I watched the parade in Dickinson on July 1 from a corner near Cenex and could see both sides of the street for a block or so. It looked like I was the only one who stood and respected the American flag as the color guard marched with it down the...

LETTER: Weather modifications increases drought
I learned of weather modification a couple years ago from some friends that live in Bowman County. I didn't think anything of it until I did some research and started watching North Dakota State Water Commission radar. Bowman, Burke, McKenzie, Mountrail, Ward, Williams, and part of...

Letter to the Editor: Life-changing events deserve special circumstances
An existential crisis occurs whenever a life-changing event brings to one's awareness the basic issues of life in a way that makes them sharper and more acute; and consequently, many things seem to be much more of a life-and-death struggle, as time itself seems to loom larger and...

Opinion: Tragic Veto of Carbon Monoxide Bill by Governor Burgum
The veto of a carbon monoxide bill this week by Governor Douglas Burgum was a tragic choice that will result in the injury and death of innocent citizens of North Dakota that could otherwise have been prevented. All this bill did was give the same protection to renters that homeowners...

Opinion: County commissioners stood up for taxpayers, shareholders
I would like to make some comments following the story of the County Commission meeting and the Red Trail Energy stock that we as citizens of Stark County own.

LETTER: Evangelical Lutheran Church respond to political cartoon
Churches respond to political cartoon Last Wednesday’s edition of the Dickinson Press included a somewhat bewildering political cartoon out of Fargo. The cartoon depicted renowned white supremacist, Craig Cobb, being influenced by the devil to take advantage of a church’s strong...

LETTER: ND Farm Bureau can still do the right thing
This past June, voters stood up for family farmers by rejecting changes to the 84 year old anti-corporate farming law in our great state. Seventy-five percent voted to continue the long held tradition to support families who work, live and support our state's economy and reject corporate...

LETTER: Charlie Creek Wind Farm may hurt the landscape
One of the things all of us in Western ND appreciate on a daily basis is our beautiful landscape, our view shed, brilliant sunrise and spectacular sunsets. Billings County has arguably some of the most unique and spectacular landscape in our entire country. So why would we want...

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: Ross is the right choice
Stark County citizens deserve better leadership than the current commissioners seeking to be reelected. On the very controversial wind farm issue Jay Elkin voted four times. He voted YES, NO, NO and finally YES. Elkin voted NO for a wind farm proposed for his neighborhood and YES...
