Reader Opinion: The right thing to do
Perhaps studying the history of the U.S. through native eyes might shed some light on the lack of trust and unity in this country. Study black history when they were brought to our country in chains. Study the native history of boarding schools, the abuse and punishment they received...

Reader Opinion: Not deserving
A friend of mine once said the DNR stood for "Do Nothing Right." I tend to believe him. It's time to boycott fishing, hunting, trapping and anything else the DNR is in charge of until this state takes over the Indian reservations and make them adhere to the state laws concerning hunting...
