CCD: your comment on the trust fund was profound. fact is there is so much money coming into the state; they could use that trust money for cities in the center of the state where oil impacts r not as devastating.

Kenmare votes no on their school bond. Notice the quiet; no more hist. soc. and state fair (hostefest) talk. they are waiting 4 the vote. if the bond passes, within 6 months you will see all of the pet projects surface, all of the money they could have put toward schools. State fair, maybe more hockey, event center and you name it. if u have religion or any concern at all for those with less than an $80,000 or so income; Vote No. It may well be the start of a new Minot we can all be proud of. Walk on our bridge to somewhere (that no one uses) over n. bdwy and do your thinking there.

Oil and housing issues were known at least 5 years ago.

The sentence is poorly constructed and is in need of punctuation.

'We are all aware of the growth in the city and region, and we are aware of the lingering effects of the recent events of a few years ago, of the burdens of some in the community have to face'.

The sentence as written in the letter is a run-on.

When you write 'We are all aware of the growth in the city and region and the lingering effects of the recent events a few years ago', it sounds like the lingering effects have growth too.

One would hope the lingering effects would be mitigated and attenuated by now.

However, if it isn't a run-on for you, that's your choice.

That sentence is not a run on sentence. It is a compound - it is acceptable joined by conjunctions.

We are all aware of the growth in the city and region and the lingering effects of the events a few years ago and the burdens that some in the community have to face.

How is that sentence not a run-on?

what a shock - politicians and lawyers think taxes are too low in Minot. a yes vote will help get the last of the low income and elderly on fixed incomes out of minot. and since minot has spent our tax dollars so wisely in the past, Why Not give them more?

There are no run on sentences. It is well written.

Hot off the presses from the Attorney General's Office, no agency from Minot has yet asked for a legal insight/interpretation of the law on whether funds can or can't be used from the Common Wealth Common Schools Trust Fund. So quit saying we can't use the funds and start educating people fully on this bond and start doing some researching.

Nice idea. problem is we have high taxes, utilities and cost of living already. they spent our money on hydro dams in canada, hostefest, state fair, hockey and much more foolishness. let the state pick up the tab. they r collecting billions from oil tax and sales tax for this very thing. A portable is acceptable for school when it is all you can afford.

Wow another lawyer jumping on the band wagon favoring increased taxes. Pretty easy for him to say whats another $300-$400 a year. I will surely be voting no on Dec 10 and I hope the majority will be with me.

A letter written to the editor in support of the upcoming bond issue vote that has run-on sentences does not speak well of the educational system in Minot.

I will vote 'yes' for Mr. Demakis to return to high school to learn sentence structure.

I will recommend the on-line writing laboratory web site offered by Purdue University.

It is obvious Minot's educational system is rife with deficiencies.

To bad you are a lawyer, most people don't trust lawyers. The farther we can stay away from lawyers seems to always mean less trouble for us.
