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.

It’s been a couple of very good months for the Fargo-Moorhead diversion project. The North Dakota Legislature appropriated sufficient funding for Fargo flood control projects, and signaled that state support for the diversion was solid. The U.S. Senate passed the Water Resources Development Act, which includes authorization for permanent flood control in the Red River Valley, which includes the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-favored diversion.
The U.S. Forest Service has offered an apology for the 14,000-acre Pautre Fire south of Hettinger on April 3, a prescribed burn by Forest Service workers that got away from them. But now the federal agency has told ranchers that it will take up to two years to pay on damage claims.

I’m not sure that everyone realizes the wonderful resource Jamestown has in its recycling center.

The center also takes clean and useable clothing and shoes that go for good causes.

If the North Dakota Industrial Commission is serious, more of the state’s “culturally important” places might be off limits to oil, gas and other potentially damaging development. The commission, at the behest of member Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, intends to visit specific places this summer with the goal of putting them on a list that might afford the sites some degree of protection.
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.
