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...

NDSU coach making way too much money
I just read recently about North Dakota State University football coach Chris Klieman accepting a job as head football coach at Kansas State University. The article goes on to say that Klieman will be paid nearly $16.9 million over a six-year period, including $88,400 for the remainder...

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...

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....

Proposed JPS tax increase raise questions
The proposed increase in taxes being promoted by Jamestown Public Schools through the referendum scheduled to be voted on Sept. 25 raises several questions as to whether or not it should be approved by the voters. Could the school district in its planning over the last several years...

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...

United States needs to lead again
The United States is withdrawing from world leadership and abandoning a position we have held since WWII. The last 75 years of our leadership led to unparalleled prosperity and progress for America, our allies and friends.But in recent months, the U.S. is pulling out of institutions...

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...
