U.S. may not survive if Trump is president
Minute Man Project, American Family Association, Center for Security Policy … these and other organizations have been studied for devious extremist actions. American Renaissance, which sounds so American and innocent, has endorsed racial bigotry. Some are on their own and some have...

Ensure safety of water with equipment
Regarding the Dakota Access pipeline, simply run a larger diameter steel pipeline that would surround the smaller one (proposed under the Missouri River) so that any possible leak would be contained. Also, it would ensure that the “millions” of oil revenue dollars currently flowing...

Leaders need to say pipeline will be built
Have we reached the point in our society where the rule of law is only applied randomly based on skin color?I am not referring as to whether or not the Black Lives Matter movement or the protests taking place over the Dakota Access oil pipeline have any legitimate reasons for their...

Letter to the editor: Funding already exists for anti-tobacco programs
One of the things North Dakota voters must decide at the ballot box this November (unless you vote early by absentee ballot) is whether we should increase taxes on smokers by 400 percent. I have several concerns about the measure, but what concerns me most is that only a very small...

Letter to the editor: Jamestown could learn from VC’s recycling center’s operation
If Jamestown wants more convenient recycling I don’t see why they can’t do what Valley City does. Valley City recycling center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Every bin is clearly marked and there are security cameras in place. Jamestown is open a few hours on three...

What will happen to the top 12 feet of water in Devils Lake once it rises and overflows into the Sheyenne River in the next 20 years or so? A Red River Valley Water Supply Project news story on Sept. 23 in The Sun creates more questions than answers. Some water advocates are promoting...

Letter to the editor: Pl ant-based diet is good for health, planet
It seems like there is always some special observance around the corner. There is even a World Day for Farmed Animals. It’s observed fittingly on Oct. 2 (Gandhi’s birthday). It’s intended to memorialize the tens of billions of animals abused and killed for food around the world....

Letter to the editor: Liberals defend Islam’s violent practitioners
Our country is under attack. We are under attack by Jihadist Muslims that our government has invited into the country to come and slaughter us. Sound harsh? It's the truth. It started with George W. Bush, who didn't have the will or the brains to restrict or scrutinize Muslims entering...

Vote yes on Measure 3
I believe that North Dakotans have the expectation that we are all equal and should be treated fairly, whether as neighbors, in business, in government and in the courts. I have been saddened to learn, however, that as victim of crime, my rights are not only lesser than the person...

Protesters should stop their unlawful activities
As protesters against the Dakota Access Pipeline continue to unlawfully vandalize private company machinery and occupy land that they have been ordered to remain away from, my social media accounts continue to spotlight these acts of masked men and women. Not only are these people...

I recently welcomed to Fargo Lt. General Todd Semonite, the commanding general of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., and Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn. Our meeting was a productive exchange of ideas as we strive to reach a permanent solution to spring flooding,...

Letter to the editor: Protests raise questions about protesters
The protests that are taking place south of Bismarck concerning the Dakota Access Pipeline raise a lot of questions that I believe are being left out of the media coverage. The pipeline people claim that they had several meetings prior to the start of the project to get public input....
