Fargo and West Fargo school districts should merge
Now is the time for Fargo and West Fargo public school districts – and the elected board members who lead those districts – to seriously consider merging. Yes, one large school district for Fargo and West Fargo rather than the two separate districts we have today. We’d urge...

Adoption lawsuit is frivolous
James and Tahnee Young sound like a couple who someday will make fine adoptive parents. It's commendable that they want to adopt a teenager who has been "overlooked by the system." But the Fargo couple is way off base in filing a lawsuit against Catholic Charities of North Dakota—seeking...

Fargo needs airport parking ramp
It’s encouraging to see Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney is making an effort to bring fresh blood to the Airport Authority board. He named Tammy Linn to replace Ken Pawluk, a former Cass County commissioner. It’s the latest sign of his determination to seriously pursue a sorely needed...

A mixed review of 2016
The extremes of angst and anger among Americans are reflections of a partisan/social/economic divide that expressed itself in the 2016 presidential election, and could deepen in 2017. Angst and anger either drove Americans to the polls in November or kept them away.

Dalrymple legacy exemplary
When North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple ends his tenure this week, he will leave the Capitol with the satisfaction that the state is in better condition to weather a fickle economy than it was when he took office six years ago. Dalrymple's steady hand and unflappable public demeanor...

A double payback for Fargo
Reimbursement of nearly $450,000 to the Fargo Police Department for its officers' service at the Dakota Access Pipeline protest is more than payback for the city's expenditures. The department under Chief David Todd also is the beneficiary of the goodwill that accrues for helping...

VP debate genial, but not timid
The common wisdom is that debates between candidates for vice president don't move the polls, but rather reveal previously unknown information about the people in the second slot on the ballot. In that purpose, the debate between Republican Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Democratic Virginia...

More N.D. children in poverty

Tax cut scheme unwise
Smarter heads prevailed Monday when the Fargo City Commission turned down an ill-conceived property tax cut proposal that was more political and ideological fluff than substantive tax policy. Commissioner Tony Gehrig, making good on his pledge to advance his 20 percent cut (which,...
