Editorial: Slow down on speed-limit reductions
People take speed limits personally. Some limits even are taken as a sign of character: Think of the federal 55 mph limit, and you'll picture yourself back in the 1970s, when the Arab oil embargo kneecapped the nation, and President Jimmy Carter spoke of a national malaise. The Reagan...

Editorial: Don't count out region's colleges just yet
"It's admissions season — and this one is one like no other," USA Today reported last month. Now, take a guess. How does that story turn out? Is the season "like no other" because it's showing clear signs of an industry in collapse? Are America's best students abandoning expensive...

Editorial: Rural Minnesota lawmakers must step up on Local Government Aid
When the Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities speaks, northwest Minnesotans should listen. So should northwest Minnesota lawmakers. Especially State Sen. Mark Johnson, R-East Grand Forks, and State Reps. Deb Kiel, R-Crookston, and Dan Fabian, R-Roseau. More about them in a minute....

Editorial: Take threats to Badlands, Little Missouri River seriously
The bill passed the Senate 47-0 and the House 76-11. So, the odds of Gov. Doug Burgum vetoing it are slim. Still, attention should be paid to House Bill 1020. That's because the bill makes plain how far North Dakota's balance is tipping toward oil development and away from Badlands...
