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...

Nation shouldn’t abandon net neutrality
Gov. Doug Burgum has certainly made his passion for technology and innovation known. This includes his vision for distance education where teachers and learners harness the power of the internet while not being bound by place or space. I agree that investing in a variety of approaches...

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.

Proposed hog operation not good for ND
A factory hog operation has been proposed less than 1 mile from the Devils Lake shore. Yearly, this facility would house over 100,000 pigs and produce over 3.5 million gallons of waste! Langdon, and many other communities already receive or are slated to receive water from the Spiritwood...

New health care proposal wrong for country
Another scary health care proposal is on the fast-track in Congress and needs to be stopped quickly. After voting “no” on the most recent “repeal-and-replace” bill, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., encouraged members of Congress to quit playing childish partisan games with people’s...

Millennials need to get involved in politics
