Letters to the Editor

Enough!

Donald Grant, Minot No one will forget the tragic and shocking events at our national capitol building on January 6th. Terrorists overran the thin security forces and attempted a coup of sorts, somehow trying to change the election results they deemed fraudulent. How can we move forward from ...

Reasonable Americans reject unlawful violence

Aaron Moss Minot Watching the events of January 6th at the US Capitol unfold, I like most proud Americans, felt gut punched. As a descendant of immigrants who fled murderous oppression in two different countries, as a U.S. Air Force veteran who has served deployed overseas and in defense of ...

The politics of hate

Mike Monson, Minot John Adams our first Vice President and second President opined that “our Constitution was made for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” I am seriously afraid that none of our elected officials in Washington, D.C. ...

Donors step up

Dianne Jeter, Minot I have worked at Roosevelt outdoor skating rink for some 20 plus years. Over that time I had accumulated a lot of hockey and skating equipment. A few years back my storage unit was broken into and all was taken. Thanks to Jordan D. Matt N. and Mary O. for their ...

Time to fix the voting process

Dan Reinhard, Minot Now that the fog of all-out war has cleared, it’s time to fix our voting process. But how do we as a nation solve all the problems we witnessed in the November General Election or the unprecedented proceedings that happened in the State of Georgia? I believe there are ...

Response to Berube letter

M.L. Berg, Minot In a letter published recently in your paper, Mr. Gary Berube, claimed that “there was fraud and corruption in the 2020 election (As you know there was)”. If by ‘you’ he means the reading public, then I disagree. From the start of the campaign until the vote of ...

Show more respect in 2021

Dennis Sommers, Minot Yet another friendly text message greeted me today - perhaps similar to those many have found in their “in boxes” during 2020. Included was a link to a “must see” video monologue about politically charged events about which, unfortunately, even our grandchildren ...

Trump needs to go – now

Darek Zaun, Minot After watching the events in Washington, D.C., this afternoon on television and listening to President Trump’s tepid response on Twitter I cannot escape the conclusion that it’s past time for him to be removed from office. Waiting until January 20th is just asking for ...

Fake news led to Capitol protes

Steven Moen, Minot Why is the fake news media surprised and outraged at the mostly peaceful protest at the Capitol on Jan. 6th, after all they have spent more than four years orchestrating the coup that looks to be completed which will turn our country over to China without a shot being ...

Dark and distressing days

Andrew Allis, Granville This is, indeed, a very dark and distressing day in this nation’s history. As it stands now at the time of the writing of this piece (early post-election dawn), it looks like two outright communists (not used in a pejorative sense, but rather an accurate description ...

Fraud and corruption in 2020 election

Gary Berube, Mandan Why is it the only elected official with any ethical and moral conviction happens to be a freshman from Mo, Senator Josh Hawley. He knows there was fraud and corruption in the 2020 election (As you know there was), but he has the courage to stand up and object. I expect ...

Hoeven’s help needed

Sarah Patten, Stanley Sen. Hoeven is up for re-election in 2022. People today in will not forget his refusing to commit to voting in favor of a $2,000 stimulus check. He could show the people he is supposed to be working for that he actually gives a damn by standing behind an increased covid ...

Accuracy of data critically important

Amber Vibeto, Minot If we are going to use data to justify putting small businesses and restaurants out of business, keeping families away from dying loved ones, imprisoning the elderly in long-term care facilities, keeping kids out of school and sports, forcing people to wear useless and ...

Drivers license department disappoints

Robert Gupton, Berthold What a person can expect from, DRIVERS LICENSE DEPARTMENT MINOT NORTH DAKOTA. I made an appointment and there was no problem with being seen on time; however, at window 3 the woman that worked today December 16th, 2020, at around 2:30 PM lied intentionally about my ...

The fall of the Roman Empire (USA)

Gary Berube, Bismarck I think it is utterly disgusting and unacceptable that our lawmakers overlook, accept and condone unethical, immoral and alleged fraudulent practices. The only person that has the backbone to stand up to the corrupt politicians is President Trump. The rest of the ...

Their concerns should be ours too

Mark Ostrem, Rugby Thank you to all ND officials that have been standing with the citizens of Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin with their concerns about election irregularities. Many people in these states believe their elections were manipulated. It seems appropriate ...

Thank you, Minot

Carl Young, founder, COVID-19 Memorial Project, Bismarck Last week, Minot’s Roosevelt Park hosted the Covid Memorial Project. I wanted to take a moment to thank the Minot community. For all that sent comments to us about the memorial, and shared their stories. We appreciate each of you ...

Last gasp to overturn election

Donald Grant, Minot Seventeen Republican attorneys joined the Texas Attorney General in an attempt to get the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn election results in four key states, thereby giving Donald Trump another four-year term. What action is this really? It’s a naked asssault on our very ...

Mandate came too late

David J. Fugere, Dunseith Tomorrow I will bury my best friend. He died from the virus, the democratic hoax, as some have called it. When I woke up this morning, I turned on the news and saw the Governor of North Dakota standing at a podium, congratulating himself on the decline in the cases ...

Good work but don’t let guard down

Dr. Joshua Wynne, vice president for Health Affairs, Dean of the University of North Dakota School of Medicine & Health Sciences and North Dakota Chief Health Strategist Dr. Paul Carson, director of the North Dakota State University Center for Research Immunization and Education and ...
