How should North Dakota use the Legacy Fund money? Many people have all kinds of ideas and here are some that I think make the most sense. Give each school district money each year to do what they choose to do with it. Start a state-run social security program that is just for North Dakotans. Get rid of property taxes in the state. Make college free for North Dakotans with the stipulation you have to stay in the state to work to help with the worker shortage.

Any and all of these are achievable if we put a great program in place. Now I'm not saying that they are all doable those were just ones that I thought of. I think the two biggest ones there would be a state-run social security program. They always say the federal one is going to run out so we'd be able to run a state one if that ever came out. And getting rid of property taxes would be a great idea. The property taxes are kind of spendy here in the Bis-Man area.

Investing in education I think is a great idea and most people think the same. We need to invest in our youth. The youth are the future of our state and country. How do you think we should invest the Legacy Fund money? Do you have any ideas on how to use it?

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
