Governor should speak out
North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple should speak up forcefully against Minnesota’s opposition to the Fargo-Moorhead diversion. His reason for not using his authority and credibility — that the matter is in litigation — makes no sense in light of an attempt by an agency of Minnesota...

Plan could double property assessments
FARGO — A new proposal by proponents of a $1.8 billion metro-area flood diversion could double the project’s potential special assessments for Cass County property owners, though diversion officials still say those fees will never be assessed. To fast-track the massive flood-control...

Diversion officials bristle at cost of wetland restoration

Officials: Plans for cemeteries a year away

Letter to the editor: ATM seems poised to spew greenbacks in Fargo’s way
Who needs a pipeline to move oil field benefits from the west? Fargo diversion backers have concocted a scheme to turn the state’s oil and agriculture bounty into a giant ATM machine. Fargo’s diversion cost estimate is about $2 billion. It’s a sure bet the federal government...
