    A Glen Ellyn letter to the editor: Recently the Daily Herald published a letter from a College of DuPage board member who questioned the approval of a new classroom facility on the Glen Ellyn campus.

  • Proposal would encourage retirement savings Jul 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    A letter to the editor: We need a retirement system that works for every resident of Illinois. Our state is facing a looming crisis. More than 2.5 million people are working today without access to a retirement savings plan at work. Research shows that we are 15 times likelier to save for retirement if we can do so using a payroll deduction. Without employer-sponsored savings plans, too many will be solely reliant on Social Security.

    An Elgin letter to the editor: There has virtually been little reporting in the Daily Herald of the growing flood of illegals walking right into our country from Guatemala, Honduras and other central American countries. There is chaos on the Texas border, with various governmental agencies scrambling to feed, house and medically care for thousands of unaccompanied children, teens and adults streaming into our country.

     
  • Obama’s lax policies created this crisis Jul 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Pingree Grove letter to the editor: We have a major humanitarian crisis on our southern border. Many would call it an invasion. Unaccompanied alien children who have crossed the border in violation of our laws are being processed by HHS, and now President Obama is asking Congress to invest $2 billion dollars for more in-processing facilities for these illegal immigrants. This crisis has been precipitated by Obama administration policies and by not enforcing border security laws.

     
  • Obama’s visit was just politics Jul 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Wauconda letter to the editor: Re: Your July 10 headline ”Obama urges border action / He visits Texas to address wave of children coming” Who are you kidding?

    A Daily Herald editorial reflects on the perspectives we bring to our lives, whether we choose to define ourselves by joy or sorrow. Quoting Epictetus: "It's not what happens to you but how you react to it that matters."

     
  • Rulings give too much power to religions Jul 13, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: I am sadden by the recent Supreme Court rulings. The latest in a misguided zeal to protect religious freedom has now injected religion into the Constitution.

     
  • Noise from O’Hare expansion the new reality Jul 13, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Elk Grove Village letter to the editor: I would like to take a moment to address the editorial that was published in the Daily Herald on July 2. The Daily Herald supported O’Hare expansion, as did a number of local leaders. Chicago wanted additional and reconfigured runways with different areas being affected. What did they expect would happen with all of this new noise?

     
  • Quinn park handouts are political ploy Jul 13, 2014 5:01 AM
    The state of Illinois is billions in debt and Patrick Quinn plays Santa Claus handing out millions in grants to area park districts. Planning for the Naperville Park District’s recreation center had been complete. Now the park board commissioners must give “additional thought” to how the free millions thrown their way can be used for the center. Hopefully voters will see through Quinn’s vote-buying charade and, in the future, reporters will do their job and challenge Quinn’s reckless spending of taxpayer dollars at a time when Illinois is in a fiscal crisis.

  • Cut taxes, regulation for a stronger economy Jul 13, 2014 5:01 AM
    A St. Charles letter to the editor: Our system has been so strong that it has been able to keep its head above water even though taxes and regulations have been significantly increased. Our economy was great in the 1980s and 1990s when taxes and regulations were cut, and it can be that way again.

  • Are we doomed to polarization? Jul 13, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Lee Hamilton: We Americans are trapped in a political dilemma. We all like representative democracy, but we don’t much like the way it’s performing. The reason for this dissatisfaction is clear. Polls in recent years detail a polarized nation, divided both ideologically and politically.

     
  • Tablets for all students unfair to taxpayers Jul 12, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Gilberts letter to the editor: This is a follow-up to a letter in the Your Views section regarding the purchase of 4,000 electronic devices for Elgin Area School District U-46. I agree that this should not be a purchase that is passed on to the taxpayers of Elgin.

     
  • Recycled products not always easy on budget Jul 12, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Lombard letter to the editor: I remember years ago when recycled plastic milk jugs went beyond school, public and park benches, becoming available to homeowners in the form of outdoor furniture (“Milk jugs make fine backyard furniture,” July 5). After extensive shopping, it became clear the cost was beyond my outdoor-living budget.
