What is the Fargo Phantom?

Publisher’s Response

Fargo Phantom is a collaboration of local professionals, financial advisors, entrepreneurs, educators, physicians, farmers and what many may refer to as a “crackpot.”

All writers have selected a “Phantom Name” due to the controversial content and editorial mission of the publication. The decision was made to help protect their professional standings in the community.

This underground newspaper is dedicated to seeking truth and justice and revitalizing the role of the free press as a guardian of liberty. We remain faithful to the traditional and central role of a free press in a free society – as a light exposing wrongdoing, corruption and abuse of power. This is why we are not accepting advertising for this venture. This is why we have assembled a arsenal of writers from all walks of life and income status.

Fargo Phantom is also designed to stimulate a free-and-open debate about political ideas facing the Red River Valley. Through educating and advocacy, we will continue to promote democracy. One constant motivation is the old-fashioned notion that the principal role of the free press in a free society is to serve as a watchdog on government - to expose corruption, fraud, waste and abuse wherever and whenever it is found.

Alternative to the Fargo Forum: Xcel Customers Ouch This Will Hurt

Some Xcel Energy customers must pay natural gas bills costing hundreds more than they may have anticipated.

The company last winter failed to receive electronic readings from gas meters of about 4,400 North Dakota residences, said Bonnie Lund, Xcel’s senior communications rep in the state.

That equals about 10 percent of all North Dakotans whom Xcel serves, and customers must now retroactively pay for the energy Xcel approximates they used.

For more information

Customers affected by Xcel Energy’s meter reading failures can call (800) 895-4999 about payment options, including an installment plan that does not charge interest.

What do you think about this at a time when energy companies are recording record profits ?
