LETTER: Dickinson 'should be proud' of local hockey team
We wanted to let you know how impressed we were with the Dickinson Hockey Team when they stopped at the Hibachi Buffet and Grill on Saturday evening on their way home from their game in Bottineau. Thirty of them came in and swarmed the buffet tables, while being quite, respectful,...

Letter: Get something ‘constructive done’
I read Governor Burgum “announces task force to examine higher education governance”. Somehow it seems that all North Dakotan’s have been to that rodeo maybe two or three times.

Letter: Learning is a team sport
I read with considerable interest the excellent article by DSU President Tom Mitzel (The Role of education as technology changes the world) in the Dickinson Press on November 4th. He emphasizes the role of the university campus in providing a laboratory for interaction among students...

Letter: Stop valuing winning over governing
In school, we are all taught how our government works. Congressional hearings are held to consider a bill's effects. Experts are brought in and testimony is given so that all sides are heard from, and then the bill's merits are debated. The more important the bill, the longer this...

Letter: Technology can never replace relationship between students and teacher
Governor Burgum's recent comments about increasing the use of technology in the classroom raise serious concerns about the direction of education policy and practice in North Dakota. The education of our children is too important to be subjected to the latest tech fad or a business...

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 to the Editor: Life-changing events deserve special circumstances

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...
