The summer before my sophomore year of high school, my family and I moved from northern New Jersey, to Indiana. Even though I grew up moving a lot, this was the first move that was really hard on me.... Posted on 4/17/13 at 8:09 AM

Senate Majority Leader Rich Wardner, R-Dickinson, and House Majority Leader Al Carlson, R-Fargo, recently boasted that they “got the job done for the citizens.” If that’s the definition of getting the job done, we fully expect the people of North Dakota to decide someone else should do the job. Too often, tremendous opportunities were squandered by an overly-ideological GOP majority with seriously misplaced priorities.

I’m not sure that everyone realizes the wonderful resource Jamestown has in its recycling center. Tons of materials go through there that would otherwise go into the landfill but instead go on to be reused in metal and paper products. The center also takes clean and useable clothing and shoes that go for good causes.

We are responding to the May 10 article, “Church’s ‘open’ view draws interest” which speaks of congregations that are “open and affirming” of those who engage in same-sex behavior. Sadly, this article also implies that Christians who believe that same-sex behavior is sinful are not willing to welcome or love people who struggle with this sin.

I was surprised the universal background check bill did not pass the Senate as it would help to reduce gun violence, and, if passed, would be the foundation for further legislation. I support this bill.
As a former Jamestown Public School Board member, I have tried to remain quiet about the actions of a number of our current School Board members. I know it is not an easy job trying to balance the needs of students, staff and taxpayers. It takes a lot of effort if you are going to be successful and do the job right.
Steve Bennion of Jamestown said he erred in his letter to the editor which appeared in Tuesday’s Sun regarding the Jamestown Public School Board’s decision not to hire Jeff Nold. One of the four hiring committee members does report to Bill Nold; Bennion had written that none do.
The Sun ran an ad in the April 24 edition on page A9, paid for by the Progressive Change Committee, which included my name. I have gotten two telephone calls at my home asking me about what PCC means to say in this ad. I would like to clarify for the community what I mean by putting my name on it.
The Jamestown School District’s School Board was found to be dysfunctional by the regional school accreditation association this past winter. That is unfortunate for our schools as strong leadership is important to moving our schools forward for young people.
I’ve enjoyed reading the editorial boards of the major North Dakota newspapers, owned mostly by Forum Communications, rail against the irresponsible actions taken by the Republican supermajority in the 63rd legislative session. What I find interesting, however, is the lack of transparency from these same editorial boards about the fact that they endorsed every one of these candidates. Every. Single. One.
The Jamestown Public School Board members who voted to refuse the hiring of Jeff Nold have sent an arrogant message to every staff member of our public school system. They have refused to hire an experienced teacher who has already been a state championship coach simply because of who his father is.
Working people have come together year after year to call for better working conditions and stronger safety protections on the job. As a result, workplace deaths and injuries have declined significantly, exposure to hazards and toxic chemicals like asbestos and lead have been reduced and far fewer workers are dying from trench cave-ins or from being caught in dangerous machinery.
