  • Bone-chilling cold can’t curb parade of dogs Oct 18, 2014 6:59 PM
    Perhaps it was fitting, given the bone-chilling weather, but Saturday’s Halloween costume pet parade at Randhurst Village in Mount Prospect was dominated by the dogs. “This is Cody, and he’s a prisoner,” Megan McNally said of her goldendoodle pet, adorned in a black-and-white striped prison inmate costume and wearing a cap reading “Bad Dog.” “We came up with it because he’s a pretty bad dog,” the 13-year-old Arlington Heights girl said.

  • Reflejos: Changing lives one at a time Oct 11, 2014 8:19 AM
    Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” Reflejos, a sister publication of the Daily Herald, can't change the whole world.

  • National Newspaper Week: Why we do what we do Oct 8, 2014 8:22 AM
    There's certainly self-interest in a newspaper promoting literacy and education. Without readers, who would buy our paper? It speaks to the third part of my grandfather Hosea Paddock's motto: “Our aim: To fear God, tell the truth, and make money.” But it's certainly more than that. It's also the underpinning of why we do what we do: our responsibility to the community.

     
  • National Newspaper Week: Why grammar is important Oct 10, 2014 6:29 AM
    I don't remember exactly when Grammar Moses was born, but I do recall administering regular quizzes to the small group of people with whom I worked when I adopted my first editing job at the Daily Herald 24 years ago. I was working with people who were new to journalism, and they needed a little coaching on the finer points of grammar, sentence structure, homonyms, spelling. Well, the whole ball of wax.

  • Daily Herald and readers: We're in this news business together Oct 7, 2014 5:43 AM
    “To fear God, tell the truth and make money.” That's the motto our founder, H.C. Paddock, wrote back in 1872. I can imagine, if he were alive today, Hosea would add an equally simple, yet critical addendum: Get people to talk to you. This week, journalists across the country will be participating in National News Engagement Day. We're doing several things at the Daily Herald this week to help put a spotlight on all the ways use technology to talk to each other instead of hide.
