Bravo to two who helped deer
The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week: * Bravo to Brent Harr and the unidentified farmer who helped rescue a deer that had ice and snow covering most of its head on Dec. 8 near Woodworth. Harr, a water operator with Stutsman Rural Water District, saw the deer stumbling...

Thank you, Gov. Jack Dalrymple
Wednesday was North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple's last full day in office. Thursday, Doug Burgum started his term in Bismarck as Dalrymple's successor. And for North Dakotans, that transition is both exhilarating and unsettling. Because while Burgum has a terrific reputation as a...

Dalrymple legacy exemplary
When North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple ends his tenure this week, he will leave the Capitol with the satisfaction that the state is in better condition to weather a fickle economy than it was when he took office six years ago. Dalrymple's steady hand and unflappable public demeanor...

Harr is a loving man
We would like to respond to the article in Saturday’s paper about Brent Harr and the deer. Brent is a very special young man. He cares for all of God’s creatures as well as his fellow man. Brent and our son, Jon, have been best friends from first grade. Brent would spend the...

Dalrymple offers a sound budget proposal
North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple's executive budget for 2017-19 is certain to be tweaked, criticized, ignored, praised and cut up by lawmakers when they assemble in Bismarck next month. That's the process: The governor proposes, the Legislature disposes. If recent history is any guide,...

If GF downtown declines, more empty parks loom
The future of Arbor Park is in limbo as city leaders and lovers of green space seek a solution for the sliver of land in downtown Grand Forks. At present, it's a quaint park in a lot vacated after the 1997 flood. Some, including the Herald's editorial board, want the park razed to...

Pipeline delay perpetuates rumor mill
The decision of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to stop construction of the Dakota Access pipeline serves no one well. The decision does nothing but provide false hope to the Standing Rock Sioux, increases community polarization and perpetuates a destructive rumor mill. The handwriting...

A double payback for Fargo
Reimbursement of nearly $450,000 to the Fargo Police Department for its officers' service at the Dakota Access Pipeline protest is more than payback for the city's expenditures. The department under Chief David Todd also is the beneficiary of the goodwill that accrues for helping...

Heed those weather warnings
As North Dakota natives know, the weather in our fine state can be beautiful - or a beast. This week's storm system brought home quite quickly that it's important to respect what Mother Nature can dish out and heed those warnings issued.

Letter to the editor: Lorenzes w ill be hard to replace

Letter to the editor: Be respectful of other’s opinions
So my kids have naturally been asking questions about the pipeline protests. Today has given me a chance to think a little bit. Applying the rule of thumb with any crowd and any topic, any size of 85 percent will be “rule abiding” compared to 15 percent “bad apples.” I came...

Put sales tax back on ballot
Building consensus is Grand Forks Mayor Mike Brown’s thing. Getting back up right after a hard-fought smackdown and vowing to fight again? Less so. It’s not that the mayor can’t do it; it’s that he hasn’t chosen to do it. Until now: “Grand Forks Mayor Mike Brown said...

ND again sounds flat note on pipeline
Like a holiday choir hitting a flat note, the response from North Dakota politicians to the federal decision to withhold a permit for the Dakota Access Pipeline did little to enhance the state’s role in finding an ultimate solution to protests that have stalled the project for months.Gov....

A few thoughts on Pearl Harbor Day
Seventy-five years ago on Dec. 7, 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt stated in a national broadcast that it “will be a date that will live in infamy.” The All Vet’s Club recently honored World War II vets from our community during our Nov. 11 Veteran’s Day of celebration...
