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.
I am compelled to tell my fellow North Dakotans about the grand scheme that Fargo is trying to sell to the Legislature. If sold, North Dakota taxpayers will be on the hook for at least $562 million of the full amount of the scheme, $2 billion.
Long after President George H. W. Bush’s march into Iraq to prevent Saddam Hussein from taking over oil-rich Kuwait and baby Bush’s seeking revenge for his daddy’s unfinished work by finishing off bad ol’ Saddam, I was wondering what our peace-loving action has produced, which is not much according to Iraqi-American writer and activist Jonathon Azaziah.

We applaud our North Dakota Legislature for passing some of the most pro-woman and pro-life health laws in our nation with the intent to uphold the sanctity of human life in our great state. For all the criticism these bills have received from the secular media and pro-abortion supporters, these sources have failed to respond to the one question that defines why the good people of North Dakota are pursuing this type of legislation.

I get that, but here are just a few examples Republican legislators don’t.

Flaring of natural gas in western North Dakota is out of control. We can monitor the expanding oil development and excessive waste in the Bakken compliments of nighttime satellite images of North America.
March is Red Cross Month and the American Red Cross recognizes our “Everyday Heroes” who help their community by giving of themselves — the volunteers, blood donors, class takers and financial supporters who help us assist those in need.
