Recently, Joel Heitkamp had Sen. Dwight Cook , R-Mandan, on his KFGO radio show. When asked for comment on Kathleen Sebelius’ responsibility for the healthcare.gov website, Sen. Cook felt it appropriate to say on live radio:
Gov. Jack Dalrymple disappoints yet again. The newly appointed North Dakota Task Force on Property Tax Reform has ONE woman and nine men – despite a North Dakota law that requires him to at least try to achieve gender balance. And he seems to be going backward. The last board he appointed had a jaw-dropping two women.
In response to Austin Noyes’ Dec. 2 letter titled “Filibuster vote should send chills down spine,” he does a good job spreading what many could take as lies. The first, and the biggest, being that the filibuster is in the U.S. Constitution. This is a flat-out lie.
In the 1930s, President Roosevelt tried to pack the U.S. Supreme Court with “yes men” judges. Fortunately he failed, and it has not been tried since – until now, by President Obama and Democratic Senate leader Harry Reid. In a blitzkrieg strike from the progressive left wing, the Democrats have gone nuclear in order to appoint their judges to any court with a mere 51 votes instead of the 60 votes per 225 years of tradition.
I read the article about trans fat in the Monday, Dec. 2, Forum with interest. I’m not a professional baker; however, I’ve learned over the years that butter and lard give you the best and tastiest baked goods. If you use lard to oil your baking pans, they won’t have a buildup on them. In fact, the pans will start to brighten as you use them. Lard used in cakes that don’t call for butter will be light and fluffy. I think lard has been given a bad rap over the years. It is an amazing natural shortening.

We celebrated Thanksgiving. I am grateful for the bounty of our land, and the Thanksgiving feasts are affirmation. This fall, I am especially grateful because on Nov. 25 a federal court in Minnesota recognized that Anishinaabe people have a right to continue the covenant with the creator to live that Anishinaabe life.
We climbed into the patrol car on a dark Sunday morning at 6 with a light rain freezing on the windshield. I was getting a firsthand look at what it is like to be a sheriff’s deputy in North Dakota’s Bakken Oil Patch by riding shotgun out of Killdeer on the first day of December.
