We are part of The Trust Project.

I was so saddened and shocked to read the story of the 10-year-old girl that was killed by a 14-year-old boy in Wisconsin.

Iliana (Lily) Peters was reported missing Sunday night. Her body was found Monday morning near a trail by Leinenkugel's Brewing Co. Chippewa Falls is about 100 miles east of St. Paul.

What is happening in this world?

I am happy that he is being charged in adult court. This is not a childhood prank!

Denis Richardson is a resident of Fargo.

Sims writes, "Voting to discontinue saying the Pledge of Allegiance because it includes “under God” was not a wise decision. It was not only an unpatriotic decision, but a foolish one."
Minch writes, "Our children and their teachers are not served by self-indulgent, virtue signaling motions from a member of the board that do nothing but display his inauthentic and misplaced 'wokeness.'"
Berube writes, "I do know if we tolerate this type of very dangerous behavior, it will only get worse."
Kotrba writes, "I believe more research and resources are needed if we’re ever to see a cure for all sorts of conditions, including genetic disorders like Huntington's disease. That’s why I’m disappointed by Congress’ latest attempts to pass Medicare negotiation policies in the next reconciliation package."
