  • Lawsuit against Obama just frivolous Aug 1, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Geneva letter to the editor: The U.S. Constitution, which is the bedrock of our legal system, says in Article II Section 4; “The President, The Vice President and Civil Officers (Supreme Court Justices) shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

     
  • Civilians defending themselves every day Aug 1, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Wheaton letter to the editor: Concerning Mr. Zlotow’s assertion (Fencepost July 21) that “odds are it (weapon carried) will more likely be used to one’s detriment rather than one’s benefit, and the detriment of the public as well.” I wonder what news, documentation, or whatever source, he derived this from.

     
  • Durbin not culprit in immigration crisis Aug 1, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: I suspect Mr. Stack who recently wrote a letter to the editor blaming Senator Dick Durbin for the current crisis at the border has not been following the crisis, or the Senator’s efforts for immigration reform very closely.

     
  • Opponents did not get say on Menard’s Aug 1, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Vernon Hills letter to the editor: Your story about Menard’s being approved is somewhat inaccurate. The board held a “special village board” meeting one hour earlier than the normal time.

     
  • We’re too loose with the hyphen on nationalities Aug 1, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: I sometimes get a bigger jolt from the columnists than I do from my morning caffeine-loaded coffee. I can basically count on not agreeing with Ruben Navarrette, but I read his column every time it is on the Opinion page. I found it especially jarring that he recently referred to himself as a Mexican-American even though he and his parents were born in the United States.

     
  • Disagreement OK, but silencing writers is not Aug 1, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Prospect Heights letter to the editor: Once again I must take issue with those like Mr. Dennis Johnson (“Leftist writers can’t see error of ways,” July 29), who would silence writers and others who do not agree politically with them. I totally disagree with Mr. Johnson’s opinions and with some of the writers who appear in the Daily Herald. However, I would never suggest that they be silenced.

     
  • Permanent solution to homelessness needed Aug 1, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Schaumburg letter to the editor: Since many cities around the country have suddenly discovered that homelessness is either a misdemeanor or a felony, is jailing them and providing food and shelter the answer? Since most homeless people are either emotionally or rationally handicapped, can incarceration, with appropriate medical attention, be just the prescription to treat this urban tourist eyesore?

     
  • Biotech industry can lead way to economic recovery Aug 1, 2014 5:01 AM
    Guest columnist David Miller and Mark Denzler: The Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity’s five-year economic development plan recently identified the biomedical/biotechnical industry as a high-potential industry cluster with projected job growth of 157,000 by the year 2025. These firms are a cornerstone of the economy. And the fight to grow them should start by supporting public insurance programs that keep drugs affordable for low-income Illinois patients and ensure drug innovators are properly compensated.

     
  • Editorial: Gay choir director’s firing cause for discussion, not judgment Aug 1, 2014 9:12 AM
    The firing of a Catholic church choir director because he got engaged to another man is hard to understand, but hopefully it will open the door to more discussion and less judgment, a Daily Herald editorial says.

     
  • Who made the decision to fly Ebola victims to Atlanta? Aug 1, 2014 4:12 PM
    The announcement that at least one of these Ebola sufferers will be flown to Atlanta didn’t mention who made the decision. It seems not to have been a high federal official, because the jet being used is a private charter. And just hours before it took off from Georgia, Tom Frieden, the CDC director, was talking with journalists and gave no hint of the impending action.

     
  • Elgin’s 311 system an initial success Jul 31, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: A few days ago, we noticed our streetlight wasn’t on. In the past, we would call and report it along with pole type (metal or wooden) and number.

     
  • Why not ban alcohol, tobacco, too? Jul 31, 2014 12:01 AM
    A South Elgin letter to the editor: The St. Charles City Council has refused to allow consideration for video poker approval for charitable causes because of the objections of two disgruntled aldermen who oppose even discussing it.

     
  • Is a memorial appropriate here? Jul 31, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Carol Stream letter to the editor: Naperville Park District suggests a plaque at the quarry following the death of two people. While I have sympathy for those who lost loved ones, the article goes on to tell about the fact that these people were intelligent and had potential. But a memorial?

     
  • President has shown his lack of experience Jul 31, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Mundelein letter to the editor: In a letter to the editor in December 2009, I wrote that I feared we had elected a president that lacked the experience to deal with both domestic and foreign polices.

     
  • The GOP as the party of reform Jul 31, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Michael Gerson: The Democratic cast of mind — in the midst of multiple failures — manages to be complacent, culturally polarizing and bereft of policy innovation. For all its disadvantages, the GOP is suddenly the party of reform — and our politics are richer for it.

     
  • Darth and taxes: Assumptions can be misleading Jul 31, 2014 9:25 AM
    Columnist Jim Slusher: Sometimes, assumptions are so embedded in our consciousness that not only do we take for granted their universal acceptance but we forget there could even be an alternative view.

     
  • Editorial: The real goal of the millionaire tax referendum Jul 31, 2014 10:14 AM
    An advisory referendum asking whether incomes over $1 million should be taxed at a higher rate might sound like a straightforward way to gauge the will of the voters. But a Daily Herald editorial points out there’s a lot more to it than that.

     
  • Tragedy reminds us to cherish our loved ones Jul 31, 2014 5:18 PM
    A Rolling Meadows letter to the editor: Life can change in a heartbeat. This week, my young neighbor, Ryan Flannigan, died as the result of a senseless tragedy. It is never easy to lose a loved one, but it is especially difficult to process when the loss could have been avoided.

     
  • Show compassion for parents of baby, too Jul 31, 2014 5:18 PM
    A Prospect Heights letter to the editor: Today, the charity organization Rest in His Arms will hold a funeral at St. Anne Catholic Church in Barrington for a 7-month-old baby who died from starvation. Whether you can attend or not, say a prayer — for the soul of the baby, and for the parents.

     
  • Show you disagree; don’t shop at Hobby Lobby Jul 31, 2014 5:18 PM
    A Grayslake letter to the editor: I respect the right of Hobby Lobby ownership to disagree with, and not personally use, any form of contraception they feel goes against their religion. I do have deep reservations against them imposing their views upon employees, however.
