Your questions, your suggestions and ideas. We want the wellness center to be a place you will find useful and that you'll really enjoy.

Jo Kimery, Beach Prairie West Development board member Spending plan only h To the editor: It was 2006 when Parshall No. 1 was first drilled for oil. It has been an unbelievable story here in the West ever since. Before 2006, west- ern North Dakota was seeking solu- tions for losing population and enticing new businesses to relocate, and look at us now. In some eyes, the envy of the na- tion, and in others, they wish it would go away. Nonetheless, it has been a success story for North Dakota, but two unanswered ques- tions still remain today. Either fund the necessary infra- structure to develop oil and gas, or slow it down to a pace that can be reasonably managed. The current ad- ministration doesn't support the latter but still wants to take credit for this one time harvest of our natural re- sources. They don't seem concerned about the people who have to live with this development every day. So let's address the impacts once and for all. How many studies and pleading by western political subdivisions does it take for administration to fi- nally accept responsibility and pro- vide a real plan. I personally have heard it from my constituents and every session rolls along with hope for better results. Requests for a spe- cial session (twice) were ignored even though:these requests came, not only from me, but also from the many elected officials representing Please support your local merchants If th solution the affected cities and counties in the find a way to address the lack of oil patch, funds on their own.
