  • Investing in tradition

    Charlotte Franks-Erickson|May 6, 2024

    If you close your eyes and think "Fourth of July'' in Sheyenne, N.D., you just might be able to taste the specially roasted slow-cooked beef that's made in the famous Stone Pit BBQ.

    Amy Wobbema|May 6, 2024

    “My name is Derek Petteway. I have been out of MRCC custody since November 28th, 2023. While at MRCC I was able to obtain my CDL, and since have found a very fulfilling career path because of it. I started a job as a crane rigger about two months ago. This job has treated me very well and it will provide me with outstanding benefits and a great retirement plan. The end goal for me is to eventually become a certified crane operator one day. “None of this would have happened if it wasn’t for t...

  • Letter to the Editor: May 6, 2024

    District 14 Republican Legislators|May 6, 2024

    District 14 residents, Let’s set the record straight. A recent letter to the editor is trying to paint a misleading picture that we are not conservatives. The letter’s “evidence,” is linked to a cherry-picked, bogus scorecard. This scorecard is blatant deception and does not deserve more attention or time. However, the voters of District 14 don’t deserve to be misled and are owed the truth. This scorecard excludes many bills and votes that provided a direct benefit to District 14 residents and businesses. Diving further into the data, thi...

  • The Supreme Court at work: "sword dancing," opinion assignment and writing

    David Adler|May 6, 2024

    The U.S. Supreme Court writes opinions to explain and justify to the American people the decisions it reaches in cases it hears and resolves in conference. The explanation of the Court’s interpretations of statutes, constitutional provisions, precedents and, ultimately, its results, is critical to the partnership between the judiciary and the citizenry, one that hinges on the public’s trust in the Court’s rationales and exercise of awesome power over the life of the nation. In a constitutional democracy grounded in reason and persuasion, the H...

  • Sermonette: An appearance of Godliness

    Pastor Joe Greiner|May 6, 2024

    Check out this gem of a verse I noticed the other day. In his 2nd letter to Timothy, Paul warns Timothy of how people will be in the last days. There’s a lot to this verse, but focus on the penultimate phrase in the list. "For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance o...

  • Card problems

    Nathan Price|May 6, 2024

    The Cardinals haven't been kind to the Black Sox this season. After a hot start to the year, the Black Sox have cooled off with their two most recent matchups against two separate Cardinals' teams. In a matchup at home against the Langdon/Edmore/Munich (LA/E/M) Cardinals on Thursday, April 25, the Sox suffered their first lopsided defeat of the season. After a scoreless first inning, the Cardinals broke out for a 3-run second inning, and followed that up with a disastrous 8-run inning in the...
