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...

Bravo to ND Senate for rejecting proposal
The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week: • Bravo to the North Dakota Senate for rejecting a proposal to remove the North Dakota State Hospital from the state constitution. The Senate voted on Tuesday to reject a proposal to remove a section from the constitution listing...

Clearly, Cobb not ‘superior’
Self-described white nationalist Craig Cobb, not the brightest light in the reliably dim-bulbed world of racists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis, apparently doesn’t see the in-your-face irony in the claim he’s a victim of discrimination. In the latest chapter of Cobb’s North...

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...

Cramer should back off ‘media bias’ case
Does “Make America Great Again” mean bringing back the Fairness Doctrine, which for decades required broadcasters to present both sides of hot issues? North Dakota Congressman Kevin Cramer says no. But his actions speak louder than his words, because Cramer’s using his position...

Burgum off to good start with native initiative
Most of Gov. Doug Burgum's first State of the State address Tuesday, Jan. 3, to the North Dakota Legislature was without surprises. He stressed what he's been stressing since he began his run for governor: State government can do better by being leaner and adopting efficiencies....

Another shutdown for Minn.?
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton and Minnesota legislators should be in a happy mood. They have returned to a spectacularly renovated Capitol building. The coffers are more than full, thanks to a surplus surpassing a billion dollars. The state’s business climate, job growth and status...

ND’s efficiency/access tradeoff hinders Grand Forks
Lloyd Omdahl's column in Monday's Grand Forks Herald (and Jamestown Sun) doesn't mention Fargo. But Grand Forks readers ought to see that word when they read between the lines. Omdahl's column is a terrific complement to Herald staff writer Sam Easter's story from last week, "Great...

A mixed review of 2016
The extremes of angst and anger among Americans are reflections of a partisan/social/economic divide that expressed itself in the 2016 presidential election, and could deepen in 2017. Angst and anger either drove Americans to the polls in November or kept them away.

The fog of fog forecasts
Weather folklore includes the wildly unscientific notion that fog will be followed in about 90 days by storms. By that reckoning, fog in early April means nasty thunderstorms in late June or early July; and fog in early October is a warning to prepare for a blizzard in late December....

Water: Too little, too much
Red River floods are recent memories. Red River Valley droughts are not as immediate in the memory files. The too-muchtoo-little story of water in North Dakota is the reflection of not fully understood changes in wet, dry and “normal” conditions that have asserted themselves...

Minneapolis, don't shun Wells Fargo over DAPL
There's a quote that's often attributed to Winston Churchill, but really belongs to another former British prime minister, Harold Macmillan. It goes like this: "Jaw, jaw is better than war, war." The Minneapolis City Council should take note - not because of the quote's origin, but...

How voter ID can make ND - and America - great again
To North Dakota lawmakers: Are you interested in helping President-elect Trump fulfill his promise to make America great again? And are you interested in making North Dakota a national leader in that effort? Then take up the cause that's sure not only to be smart policy, but also...
