Letter to the editor: Exciting to see hockey win and pride in flag
When considering the NFL and its disrespect for the U.S. flag, it was exciting and so much fun to watch a generation of young kids honoring our flag especially near a foreign country that despises us. The women’s gold medal USA team each wore the flag and were darn proud of it...

Letter to the editor: Port misinformed on effort to restore tax
Rob Port (Feb. 21 Sun) is totally misinformed about the effort to restore the 6.5 percent oil extraction tax. It is not an effort of the North Dakota Democratic NPL Party. The group working on an initiated measure consists of concerned, informed citizens from around the state. They...

Letter to the editor: Recruiting shouldn’t happen in ND schools
What is happening to basketball in North Dakota? A few years ago there was chatter about parochial schools recruiting athletes and giving them free tuition. If you saw the latest Class B poll, several parochial schools are ranked again. I am not against parochial schools as I...

Letter to the editor: Money is most corrosive element of politics
We live in a highly divided country today. In my lifetime, the divisions have never been greater and are still growing. Since the early days of our Republic, we have had a two-party political system. Perhaps it has not been the best idea but it is what we have. The lines between...

What You Think: Administration working to build its own swamp
It is tiring to watch Congress continue to offer temporary short-time budget extensions again and again. It is depressing to see these extensions become manipulations that hold the nation hostage to the obdurate demands of this GOP president.

Letter to the editor: Burgum should listen more closely to women
For some time, Gov. Doug Burgum has showed himself to be on the right side of history when it comes to the public health issue of addiction. This was especially clear in his State of the State address in Minot. His compassion for North Dakotans who are struggling with the illness...

Letter to the editor: The cost of tyranny haunts us today
“If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.” The wisdom of James Madison some 230 years ago. “In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first...

Hoeven’s provision should be permanent
With the passage of the Tax Cut & Jobs Act in December, Congress and the Trump administration promised historic tax relief. Unfortunately, it looks as if a lot of farmers won’t receive tax relief, given the current situation with Section 199, a tax deduction that is essential...

What You Think: Coverage lacking on March for Life
On Friday, Jan. 19, the 45th annual March for Life was held in Washington, D.C. Did you know that? Did you see any coverage on it in the paper, local or national news? I didn’t, maybe I missed it.It was the largest March ever. An estimated half a million people came to march. Many...

Legislature shouldn’t have given away money
Everybody has received the real estate tax Christmas greetings from the county auditor. In addition to unfunded legislative mandates burdening real estate taxes, the Republican majority has sprung other expenses and loss of service on us. With the extra mandate of Social Services...

Cramer has been there for ND veterans
A Jan. 15 letter from Chris Deery that attacked Rep. Kevin Cramer was misleading and short-sighted. The letter suggested that a 2014 Cramer campaign ad “displays disrespect for veterans” because it was shot at a state-owned cemetery. The letter was penned by Deery, a veteran himself....

Letter to the editor: Hoeven hiding from constituents
Why has Sen. John Hoeven been hiding from his constituents? I was checking his website for any upcoming events on Dec. 30 and was disappointed to see he didn’t have any future events, the most recent one having been on Nov. 22. However, a few days later on Jan. 3, I rechecked...
