A week ago, our safe little world was shook up again as we witnessed another senseless rampage, this time in Connecticut. It seems inconceivable that someone could come up with a plan to murder little kids, still full of the innocence of childhood. The story continues to rip at our hearts this week as we witness the funerals for the students and staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School. I don’t know what the answers are to these violent outbreaks.
This November, North Dakotans will send one of our three public service commissioners to Washington, D.C., to represent us in the House of Representatives. Given that we can only send one person to this national legislative body at a time, it is critically important that person be possessive of a wide, deep and high appreciation of our state, its people, its industry and resources, and its offerings and needs.

I am responding to the article “Police respond after job search leads to heated argument” in the weekend edition of The Jamestown Sun.

Board member Dick Geigle, speaking on behalf of the JSDC, used to deride Mayor Clarice Liechty and three Jamestown City Council members in The Jamestown Sun and on a radio interview regarding their decision to utilize half of the 1 percent city sales tax for city infrastructure.
Gov. John Hoeven and the North Dakota Republican Party are bringing Michele Bachmann to town. Not only does Bachmann have little idea of what’s best for North Dakota, she contradicts herself at every turn.
Well it is the 100th birthday of the Boy Scouts in this great nation of ours. The Boy Scouts has long been a great organization to help young men to become our future leaders and it is still going better and stronger. The Boy Scouts have achieved a lasting impression on boys who have put on that uniform.
A bearded man visited America on Christmas Eve. It wasn’t Santa Claus. Karl Marx (i.e. the spirit of government- imposed poverty past, present, and future) was back from the Global Warming summit in Copenhagen. The Socialist Democratic Party and its helpers (Sens. Byron Dorgan and Kent Conrad and Rep. Earl Pomeroy) voted for socialized medicine.
The new health care bill is a bunch of garbage. It should have been thrown into the garbage can before it ever hit the floor of Congress. When the members of Congress are not being placed under the health care bill’s provisions, why should the citizens of this great nation be asked to do so?
