Letter to the Editor: Omdahl should have told ‘the rest of the story’
I enjoy reading Lloyd Omdahl’s articles, but I find the latest one a little misleading. He fails to give the "rest of the story" as Paul Harvey used to say.First of all, let's dispel the notion that the ethics measure was a groundswell of primarily North Dakotans looking to better...

Letter to the editor: Rural residents taxed for TRAC without representation
Marvin Allen's letter on Jan 19 was spot on. As a rural resident I wasn't given the opportunity to vote on the sales tax to pay for the Two Rivers Activity Center, but they made sure I help pay for it when I shop in Jamestown.This is taxation without representation. If the city of...

Governor, first lady make behavioral health a priority
Within the last few weeks, Gov. Doug Burgum released his proposed budget for the biennium and I want to commend him for making behavioral health a priority. Within the budget are important line items like $3,050,000 for increased substance use disorder (SUD) treatment, which is important...

It’s time to work together for ND
The election is over. Now is the time to put aside all of the campaign rhetoric we have heard from all the parties. After all the bloviating is done and all the post-election analysis is finished we all still remain North Dakotans. It is time to reach out and shake hands and put all...

Where will money come from for drone infrastructure?
I'm confused by Gov. Doug Burgum's $30 million drone infrastructure project. While I don't necessarily think it is inherently a bad idea on principle, I just don't understand where this money is supposed to come from.We have not freed up $30 million through so-called efficiencies....

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...

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
