Governor candidate: Focus on public education first
Are you voting to build new schools this fall? Are you voting to give your tax money to private schools? People seem not to realize it but that is on the ballot under the governor's race.

Letter: Measure 4 doesn't have enough specifics
There are many things about Measure 4 that concern me. One of them is that the spending programs, which are very vaguely described, are locked in for seven years. So what happens if there are problems? What if there is actual fraud or abuse or waste?

LETTER: Who is "Vote Right 36?"
Have you noticed in the paper the District 36 Democrats have gone negative? At least I think they are Democrats. Their ads don't say they are Democrats, but rather something called "Vote Right District 36." Normally we have right-wing Republicans and left-wing Democrats, so why aren't...

Letter: An inconvenient truth for ND Democrats
Democratic leaders and candidates across the state maintain that during the last legislative session North Dakota Republicans gave "big oil" a tax break that is costing the state millions of dollars each month in revenue. Here's an inconvenient truth! For seventy legislative days...

Letter: Government needs to get out of 'sin tax' business
It is my intention in writing this editorial so that all citizens can read this in all North Dakota newspapers. Citizens, please vote "no" on Measure 4 in the upcoming state measure voting. Slam the door shut to government control! It is nothing but a scam. But more importantly, a...

Letter: Election is important to America's future
How did we, the United States of America, the greatest nation on Earth, end up with a president that trashes the Constitution in every way that he pledged to uphold and defend, and is not held accountable and people voting twice for him? Plus, the prospect of electing the first female...

Letter: Choosing 'non-politically correct' Republican over deplorable Democrat
I look at the picture under a title that caught my eye in The Dickinson Press Opinion page and see a young face — that of Matthew Becker. So young, yet already an elitist establishment political snob. Trump was not my pick of the large pool of very capable Republican candidates....

Letter: BLM's duty is to protect tribes from wasting natural gas
Every day, our resources are burnt, released, or lost right in front of our eyes. Our money is literally going up in smoke. Waste of tribal resources deprives communities of royalty revenue that is vital to funding health care, education and roads. We are losing more revenue and getting...
