  • Spouses can apply online too

  • Letter to the Editor

    To the editor:

    The swine flu is not coming–it’s already here. The question now is what will happen when our kids all get together when school opens Aug. 24. Will there be an explosion of new cases then, or later in the fall when the traditional flu spreads through society? A vaccine for the swine flu will not be ready until mid-October and right now that vaccine will take two shots given 21-28 days apart.

  • Who needs that much Drama?

    Drama is defined an exciting, emotional or unexpected series of events or set of circumstances. Most of us know that. But there are so many of us who live it. Drama. With a capital “D”.

    In any environment, whether it’s school, work, family or social, there’s always Drama. Most people keep it to themselves, handle it privately and we never know what is going on.

    But then there are those who over exaggerate everything and thrive on the crisis of the minute. You know them too.

  • A Williston Pioneer Editorial

    Next Monday, the familiar yellow school buses will be back on the roads taking children to school for another year of learning.

    Drivers should take note and remember traffic safety rules when school is back in session.

    It only takes one mistake to change the course of a life forever.

    Keep your mind on the road.

    Eat breakfast before you get in your car, lay aside the cell phone and forget about texting. The life you save might be a child’s.

    Anger is an interesting thing. Not an emotion in and of itself, it is a response to other emotions, such as fear or betrayal. It can be repressed or overt; expressed loudly through physical action or quietly through words; destructive or beneficial.

    To the editor:

    After reading the article on the mail carrier that failed to deliver mail facing a possible five-year prison sentence plus $250,000 fine.

    I understand that this is a serious offense, messing with the government and the U.S. mail. Yes, she should be punished. I think that’s a bit harsh of a sentence for not delivering mail when people can get away with starving, neglecting and abusing horses, pets and children with sometimes no convictions.

    To the editor:

    As Grand Knight for The Knights of Columbus at Holy Family Church Council 11784, I would like to thank the editor of the Pioneer, Carolyn Risner. She was very gracious in handling the Knights and writing an article concerning our activities and service in the community.
