We have a surplus of money. Some of this tax money should go back to the taxpayers. This often becomes a claim when there is more money than the budget called for in the past. Legislators in Bismarck are positioning themselves to give this money back during this session.
"All the programs since the Great Depression were meant to prevent recessions and depressions. Yet all that was done was to plant the seeds of the greatest financial bubble in all history.” – U.S. Rep. Ron Paul.
As we bid good riddance to a truly unforgettable administration, it seems like the majority of the public has forgotten that George W. Bush himself had great potential to be remembered better than what he is now.
It looks like the left has already tired of their supposed inclusionary bipartisan approach to political events. The entire Barack Obama campaign was about change, togetherness, bipartisanship, etc., but over the course of the inauguration, that supposed tenet was tested.
A big thank-you and congratulations to John L. Pelkey Jr. (letter, Jan. 18). Someone finally hit the nail on the head. The UP Center is just another on a list of projects rejected by the residents of Fargo that got pushed through (no accident). Do the detox center, mega-$$$ library or zoo ring a bell?
In response to Tammy Clemenson-Culver’s Jan. 3 letter regarding pit bulls:
She makes numerous references to pit bull owners. That is exactly where the problem originates. The owners are responsible for their dogs’ behavior. Any dog can be raised carelessly and taught to be aggressive. It is strictly environmental.
Ann Krause, Breckenridge, Minn.

I have to give credit where it is due. The Forum and the local area media have all been very objective in their reporting. The stories about me regard misguided and, to say the least, poorly handled violation of my Fourth Amendment rights: the unjustified inspection of my salvage yard west of Amenia, N.D., for contamination that didn’t exist.
