Letter to the editor: Opening CRP land doesn’t solve all problems
Ducks or ranchers? This year has brought on many challenges for ranchers across North Dakota and neighboring states with the drought we are experiencing. They have to decide to either buy hay or sell the cows. As a cattle producer, that has to be the most difficult decision to...

Letter to the editor: Bakken’s population is more diverse
Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEOof Facebook, visited the Bakken last week, and hopefully he saw more than the incredible technology that brings oil from the ground, because, even though North Dakota is still a newcomer as a leader in the global oil and gas markets, the impact is...

Letter to the editor: Health care bill devastating to many families
I don’t want to hear more numbers. I am not a number. My children are not numbers. When they talk about millions of Americans losing Medicaid, they’re talking about my family. When they say Medicaid recipients are “takers” who don’t deserve medical care unless they “get...

Letter to the editor: Thankful for what Trump has done
I would like to thank President Donald Trump for the things he has already done, and the most recent one was for veterans. Now, let’s talk about former President Barack Obama and the Clinton Foundation. Obama knew for a long time Russians were involved in this election system...

Seek solutions that truly reform health care
On behalf of the North Dakota Hospital Association’s 48 member hospitals and 1,600 physicians and medical students in the North Dakota Medical Association, we are writing to express our concerns about the Senate’s health care bill - the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA). ...

Senate’s bill is far worse than ACA
I really appreciated the letter by Jamestown Regional Medical Center CEO K. C. DeBoer, which was published June 27 in The Sun. DeBoer’s statements about the proposed U.S. Senate health care bill are exactly right. Any way you slice it, the bill would mean great hardship for many...

Project’s success allows others to enjoy facility
As kids growing up in Jamestown, you could always find us at one place in the summer - the ballpark. It was a natural place to be and was more like an extension of our backyard. Our grandfather, Jack Brown spent much of his time there as well. He loved to tell us stories about selling...

Horrific acts, violence have happened in politics
In my lifetime there have been many acts of violence in politics. There were three assassinations and at least four attempted assassinations of political figures or people seeking equal justice and rights. These include President John F. Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King...

Lower class deserves health care
There is a debate over health care in America today, and when we read Facebook, it’s easy to get the impression that people who want health care are simply moochers looking for handouts and should work harder or get better jobs.This always reminds me of my two grandmothers and the...

Reporting on accident injuries might deter drivers

Letter to the editor: GOP health care bill helps wealthy, hurts families
A more appropriate name for the Republican “Better Care Reconciliation Act” would be “If You’re Not Wealthy And Get Sick You Die Act.” All of the health care cuts in the bill add up to a $592 billion tax cut for the wealthy. Meanwhile 93,000 North Dakotans will be kicked...

Letter to the editor: Cramer is ND’s most disingenuous politician
The assertion that anyone other than Kevin Cramer is North Dakota’s “most disingenuous politician” is laughable. After all, this is the same Kevin Cramer whose first action in the new Congress was to try to eliminate the only independent ethics oversight of members of Congress....

Letter to the editor: Health care bills not good for North Dakota
There is nothing in the new health care bills that is good for North Dakota. Nothing. Last week, the Senate revealed its Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) of 2017. The bill was in response to the American Health Care Act (AHCA) passed by the House. Neither bill is good for North...

Letter to the editor: Hoeven should vote against health care bill
I’m 41 years old, have life-threatening muscular dystrophy and Medicaid insurance pays for a ventilator that pushes every breath into my body. Without this vital machine, I’d be dead in minutes.
