Here's the thing that lots of local hockey fans might not know about the International Ice Hockey Federation Men's Under-18 World Championship, which is coming to Grand Forks next month: The tickets are very reasonably priced. So, if you're used to sticker shock when you you're checking out a showcase event, be prepared for a different feeling when you start looking into the upcoming world championship games. That would be a feeling of pleasant surprise, accompanied by the words, "Hey, these prices aren't too bad at all."
Here's why Minnesota House Republicans should support proposals to boost Local Government Aid: Because LGA works. It does just what it's supposed to do: help Minnesota towns from the Arrowhead region to the southwest maintain professional police departments, pleasant parks and proud libraries. It does this as a matter of routine, without scandal or selfishness. (Nobody's getting rich off of LGA.) And it has been accomplishing this challenging task since the 1970s.
Listen. Do you hear it? It's the sound of the system working—the system, that is, to prevent more young people from using illegal drugs. Granted, the sound is not the...
The answers to some questions are difficult. This answer's easy: It doesn't matter whether voters "should" remember Bill when considering Hillary, as the InsideSources.com debate on this page asks. For the fact is, voters will remember Bill. They are remembering him at this very moment. And those memories already are playing a huge role in Hillary Clinton's presidential race, for better or for worse.
Will music therapy at UND survive? That's hard to say, though there's no doubt that the program's supporters have offered good arguments the past few days. In particular, we're struck...
The banner headline "72 DIE IN STORM" now has appeared on the Herald's front page twice. The first time was on March 18, 1941. The second time was on Monday, when the Herald reproduced the 1941 front page in miniature as part of the paper's coverage of the storm anniversary. The takeaway from these two appearances: What a difference 75 years makes. And what a testament that is to a gigantic change in North Dakota and Minnesota's fortunes.
The trouble with “free college” is that it would be hugely expensive, might hurt the world-leading quality of American universities ( as Neal McCluskey explains in his column ) and...
It’s not the new start time -- 8:20 a.m. instead of 8:05 a.m. for Grand Forks elementary-school students every day. It’s not the new finish time -- early dismissal roughly...
Sometimes, after learning about the life of a person who has done wrong, a reader thinks, "Well, that person was foolish and cruel. Making bad choices, hurting others and never learning from mistakes add up to 'should have known better.'" But that's not the typical reaction, we're guessing, to the story of Marcus Schumacher. He's the man who, after threatening his wife, "barricaded himself inside their northside home ... and allegedly fired at Fargo police officer Jason Moszer in an alley, fatally wounding him," as a Forum News Service story on Sunday's front page described.
Lots of great insights about Donald Trump in today's ThreeSixty roundup of analysts' views. Here's another: "Like his style or not, Mr. Trump is an in-your-face guy," writes Monica Crowley, editor of online opinion at The Washington Times, in a column at washingtontimes.com. "Voters want that kind of guy taking it to President Obama's record, Hillary Clinton or whomever the Democrats nominate, and to the unbridled, destructive leftism that has rendered America virtually unrecognizable.
