Why not just split the country in two
The left has been coming unglued since the Trump election. We've all seen it. The violence, the vandalism, the incivility, the rifle toting madman gunning down Republican softball players, the mobs harassing people in restaurants, the Kavanaugh fiasco, I could go on. And now, we have...

Concentrated feeding operation not right for Devils Lake area
I am an enrolled member of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation but my direct lineage is Mandan and Hidatsa. I have lived my whole life with my family in Mandaree, on the Fort Berthold Reservation. I oppose the concentrated animal feeding operation that's sited near Devils Lake....

UJ hockey worth getting out to watch
I have seen Jamestown hockey develop over many years; who would have thought there would be a college team someday. Well, there is and I have been watching games for the last few years and it is quite enjoyable. These young men play fast, clean with crisp passing and shooting, and...

More than one reason vote will be no on referendum
I will be voting “No” on the school referendum and these are the reasons why: It is obvious the Jamestown school system does not have a problem hiring teachers. For years my neighbor tried to obtain a position. She substituted in order to make herself visible but was never hired....

Use Legacy Fund to bolster school security
North Dakota’s luck has held again. So far we haven't had a school shooting in our state. This isn't about taking anyone’s guns, arming teachers or mental illness. I don't want any parent, grandparent or friend sending children to school and end up having to identify them at a...

Ryan is an enemy of working people
Good riddance to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, a pathetic lifelong politician who never held a real job in his life. The Wisconsin Republican is a longtime enemy of working men and women across the United States. Like most establishment Republicans, the man talks a good game while...

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...

Time running out to sign up for health insurance
Years ago, I worked as a nurse in North Dakota hospitals. It was not uncommon to meet farm families or young adults who were unable to get health insurance and were worried about their ability to get and pay for needed health care. This problem is serious because research clearly...

Remember when things were different
Remember when life was much simpler.Remember when everyone walked to and from school. Remember when there was no school parking lot, look now. Remember when every older man was proud to provide for his own family. Remember when the word “no” only had to be said once.
