Pipelines helped put Trump over top
Presidents tend use their first week in office to act fast on their biggest issues - really, the issues that helped get them elected. And given that tendency, then the Obama administration’s choosing to block both the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines might just rank among...

Let state - not motorists - punish lawless protesters
When protesters block traffic, they’re treating motorists with contempt. “Sure, you have your interests, but ours our more important. And now we’re going to make you sacrifice for our cause,” the protesters effectively announce when they occupy a highway. Arrogance is almost...

Mandated wage hikes aren’t good for business
It’s a rather depressing time for business in North Dakota. The oil, agriculture and Canadian tourism industries all tanked at once. Now, consider a governmentmandated plan to add 27 percent labor costs to small businesses throughout the state. That’s essentially what would happen...

Interstates safe enough for 80 mph speed limit
Safety concerns are a natural reaction to speed limit increases. Common sense tells us the higher the speed limit, the more likely a fatal accident could result. Statistically speaking, that’s probably true in all cases. But it isn’t necessarily automatic. For instance, South...

It’s not spring, but still...
Some meteorologists, locked solidly in the strictures of scientific definitions, don’t like the notion of tagging a brief warm spell in midwinter a “January thaw.” Lighten up.

Reject oil spill free pass in ND
North Dakota landowners who oppose an attempt to weaken the state's oil spill reporting requirements know of what they speak. They are on the front lines daily dealing with spills of oil and other toxic drilling liquids that pollute waterways and render farmland and pastures useless...

Treasurer serves ND well
Another attempt to eliminate the North Dakota Treasurer's Office has bubbled up in the Legislature, this time with bipartisan support. Bipartisan or not, the idea should meet a quick and merciful death. Of all the state's constitutionally mandated functions, the office of treasurer...

Keep fire hydrants clear of snow for everyone's sake
Keeping fire hydrants near your house or business clear of snow and other debris is important because every second firefighters spend doing other tasks take them away from doing their most important job—fighting fires. Jim Reuther, Jamestown fire chief, said this week that the...

Big laws need bipartisan support
We’re not sure what President Barack Obama’s legacy will be. But we are sure about what it should be: Presidents should not pass major, once-in-a-generation legislation without bipartisan support. When Massachusetts voters elected Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate in 2010, Obama...
