Our view: Bump-outs good for downtown
Herald editorial board The bright paint on the streets in downtown Grand Forks may be confusing to pedestrians and motorists, but it's serving an important purpose. The red areas along the corners of DeMers Avenue downtown are temporary bump-outs, designed to narrow a busy street...

Our view: Pelosi isn't good choice as speaker
Herald editorial board When Democrats held a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives prior to 2011, Nancy Pelosi ran the show. For four years, she was the first woman to hold the powerful role of speaker of the house. As Democrats seek to retake the House — they need a...

Give context to statues of Confederates

Our view: Risky times for region's ag producers
Herald editorial board The opening round of President Trump's trade tariffs went into effect Friday, and now the country awaits answers to so many questions, including: 1. Will ag producers be as adversely affected as many predict? 2. Will China blink? 3. Can the president's strategy...
