On Sunday, Oct. 21, R James Maxson quoted me from the newspaper interview. The quote was quite out of context. After thinking quite hard to remember, and talking to a colleague, I remembered the context.
I would encourage Mr. Maxson to call or email people before ...
I was wrong to sign the petition to put Measure #1 on the ballot calling for the establishment of an ethics commission. At first glance, I thought, “Who wouldn’t agree that we need ethics in our North Dakota government?” But after further examination, I found ...
What’s the value of regulations and laws if they’re ignored? This summer Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem filed a claim for $388 million from the Army Corps of Engineers for failing to enforce laws regarding DAPL protestors, which he said was Corps’ “direct ...
On Nov. 6th, North Dakotans will have the opportunity to vote for or against the legalization of recreational marijuana in our state. While I believe there are many reasons to oppose Measure 3, the health, safety and wellbeing of our children is one I am absolutely ...

If youmare friends with a person serving in virtually any state function, even as mundane as one of the 150 state executive boards such as the Interagency Council on Homelessness or Library Coordinating Council, you are banned from buying the person lunch, a beer, or gas ...
Veterans Day. Each year on Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. our county comes together in honoring and thanking our veterans for the ultimate sacrifice they have given to protect the freedom we have in our country today. Veterans Day is a day when we honor those veterans who are still ...
The mid-term election of 2018 could mark the turning point as to which way the United States of America will turn. The Democratic party already has a strong hold to turn America into a Marxist, socialist, Communist state.
Yes communist. That includes North Dakota ...

In the article about a candidate’s forum entitled “A Matter of Perspective,” States Attorney candidate Roza Larson is reported to say “I don’t think the state would ever want to waive its immunity.”
This would be a reference to sovereign immunity from ...
“That government is best which governs the least”- Henry David Thoreau
This election day North Dakotans have the opportunity help fulfill in a small way the vision of small government and freedom that many North Dakotans hold dear. On this year’s ballot there ...

North Dakota’s electric cooperatives urge voters to consider the power of a unified voice when casting their ballot in the 2018 election. While electric cooperatives strongly support transparency, ethics and good governance practices, we fear there is ...

I am writing to urge a “No Vote” on Measure 3. My insight to essentially unlimited access to recreational marijuana stems from the time when I was in the Army in Vietnam. Not all of us who served there were drunk or drugged. It is my direct experience that a ...
I would like to “thank” taxpayers of Minot and Minot Park District for the “skate park” at Roosevelt Park.
I have spent a lot of time there this summer with my great-grandson, Kane House, who is 7 years old. I am amazed at the number of young people who ...
Vice President Mike Pence recently spoke the truth. In his words: “When it comes to small business America, when it comes to steel America, you have a champion in President Donald Trump.” He continued: “The proof is in your paycheck and that is the tax cuts are ...
On October 12, 2018 I wrote this public comment on Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations proposed in the Devils Lake Region to the North Dakota Department of Health:
My name is Lisa DeVille. I am enrolled member of the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation but my ...
I do not have to see the movie: “Gosnell” to realize the possible horrors of abortion, or more politically correct; Women’s Reproductive Rights. I realize since the Roe v Wade decision in 1973, close to 62 MILLION abortions have occurred in this country. And we tidy ...
One thing most people can agree on is that the Brett Kavanaugh Senate hearing was a sorry spectacle — a repeat of the 1991 Clarence Thomas hearing on steroids, with many of the same players.
Except for one major new player: a president that is in our faces like 24-7, ...

I applaud the Minot Daily News for publishing the views of the state legislative candidates in District 3, in which my entire Minot family resides. At age 38, I was elected as a state senator in that district and served for two terms, retiring voluntarily at age 46. It ...
