Commentary: Proposed line 3 replacement is responsible and best solution
Several portions of a March 19 commentary by Winona LaDuke require a response to provide readers with accurate information about our Line 3 Replacement Project. Unfortunately, too much information presented by others about Enbridge's pipelines is narrowly focused and lacks the context...

Commentary: Ready to take pants off for charity
When the subject line of an incoming email reads "Take Your Pants Off For Charity!," I'm going to open that email and see what it's all about. I mean, let's face it, if we can take our pants off in public for a good cause we should go for it. Why not bring back a sophisticated and...

Commentary: Adults playing video games
Long ago I admitted to being behind the curve in technology and a general stick-in-the-mud about some of the crazy stuff whirling around me. My recent views on why in the world NASA is trying to develop a strain of potatoes that would grow on Mars is an example.

Commentary: People possess ability to maintain under stress
Several years ago, I was gifted a very fun stress ball. It was filled with a glittery liquid and sea creatures, was soft and rubbery to the touch and difficult to put down. No matter how hard it was manipulated, pulled apart, pushed in, squished and stretched to the extreme, it always...

Commentary: Miss those summer days so long ago
I hate to be the "When I was a kid" guy, but here I go. When I was a kid… we played outside all summer with little supervision, made our own fun and we ran in neighborhood packs. Driving around towns these days I don’t see the same activity I recall as a kid. The days of vacant...

In one way or another I have been a part of this community my entire life. I was born here, I grew up here and I am very fond of this place and the people in it and I am certain there are others that feel the same as me. I know the destruction of fire; I have experienced first-hand...
