  • Unlicensed, uninsured drivers cost us all Aug 9, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Niles letter to the editor: Gun control and illegal immigration have gotten so much attention in recent months, but why aren’t we addressing the problem of unlicensed/uninsured drivers? This too is a major law enforcement issue. Check the police blotter in the paper and you’ll commonly see two or three such arrests following minor accidents or routine traffic stops.

     
  • Saturday Soapbox Aug 9, 2014 1:00 AM
    Daily Herald editors reflect on items from around the suburbs ranging from a Wheaton reporter's influence in the Watergate affair to food donations in Elgin. Some opinions require lots of words and elaboration. Some don't. This is Saturday Soapbox, briefly stated commentary from the Daily Herald's editors.

     
  • Why government fails, and what we should do Aug 8, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Lee Hamilton: What’s odd is that while the frequent failures in government’s performance are very much on ordinary people’s minds, politicians don’t talk much about fixing them

     
  • Cartoon was an attempt to mislead readers Aug 8, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Elk Grove Village letter to the editor: As a longtime subscriber, I have always read your paper from Page 1 through to the end. However, when I reached your Opinion page Aug. 2, I threw away your paper in disgust! The “political cartoon” by Arial about the fighting in Gaza was so blatantly untrue and biased that I could read no further.

     
  • Look northward for a well-run state Aug 8, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Elk Grove Village letter to the editor: I would like to applaud and thank the Daily Herald for their Opinion editorial on Aug. 3, titled “First priority: restore our faith.” I also would like to leave this state. When we go up to Lake Geneva for the day we meet people and I ask them, “Are you from Illinois?” I receive answers like, “I would commit suicide before I moved to Illinois!”

     
  • Respect rights of those who differ Aug 8, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: I am in full support of Colin Collette and feel so sad that the Archdiocese of Chicago fired him for simply being who he is. I was outraged at first and even partook in the Herald online discussions. I have thought and prayed and slept on all this.

     
  • Walgreen experience emphasizes need for corporate tax reform Aug 8, 2014 9:38 AM
    A Daily Herald editorial says Walgreen made the right decision to stay in the suburbs, but its study of an option to move overseas emphasizes the need for comprehensive reform of corporate income tax policy.

     
  • Catholic Church was here first Aug 7, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Glen Ellyn letter to the editor: Marty Klemenz’s negative letter on Aug. 6 about the Catholic Church is typical of those who do not take time to read history and receive most of their information from the secular media or movies.

     
  • Solve gang violence first, Sen. Durbin Aug 7, 2014 12:01 AM
    A St. Charles letter to the editor: In an Aug. 4 letter headlined “Not a border crisis, a humanity one” in the Aug. 4 Daily Herald, the writer is standing up for Senator Durbin. It seems that the good senator has been catching some flack for spending time in support of the youngsters coming over our southern border.

     
  • Sox can’t catch, can’t throw, etc. Aug 7, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Naperville letter to the editor: Congratulations to Ken Williams and Rich Hahn. They have taken the 2005 World Champion White Sox to the worst team I can remember, including one starting pitcher, a left fielder who can’t catch fly balls, many errors and a bullpen that can’t get anyone out.

     
  • Why change Bible to fit our world? Aug 7, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Roselle letter to the editor: Puleeze! Engagement of gays leads to firing makes the front page? Did this director of music ever listen to what was taught in his church? Has he read the Bible concerning same sex marriage or liaisons?

     
  • Opinion that doesn’t belong on edit page Aug 7, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Wheaton letter to the editor: C’mon! Really? You imply that the Catholic Church should change its 2,000-year-old-plus belief regarding gay activities because the world has changed?

     
  • Fair view of church, gay marriage Aug 7, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: Thank you for finally (in my opinion) expressing a balanced view on church (Catholic Church) and gay marriage.

     
  • Got a problem with First Amendment? Aug 7, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elburn letter tothe editor: Again, and with all do respect to Theodore M. Utchen, we will pray where we want when we want. Who’s we, you might ask? The American People.

     
  • Base jumping should not be glorified Aug 7, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: First, our local delivery service is excellent. Thank you. Next, on the tragic story of Adam Rubin, the base jumper who died in Idaho, what exactly are you thinking? Why encourage, as your article did, people to go sky diving or base jumping?

     
  • Herald has chance to be part of the solution Aug 7, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Barrington Hills letter to the editor: Thanks for your Aug. 3 editorial highlighting the importance of restoring faith in Illinois government. This is in the hands of concerned citizens, but we’ll do better if we have a process that we can align around to help us move forward. If you choose, the Daily Herald can play a key role in this by taking your investigative reporting up a notch and by providing a communications platform to help us organize what needs to be done.

     
  • Attack ads do the voters no good Aug 7, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: The Illinois campaign style is for candidates to describe each other as the south end of a northbound donkey. One of the demonized individuals wins and proves the description to be accurate — just witness the state of our state. Normally the campaign is devoid of plans and heavy on insults, none of which is helpful to a voter’s decision-making process.

     
  • Israel not the worst of Mideast violence Aug 7, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Buffalo Grove letter to the editor: For readers who are too naive or prejudiced to think that all Middle East violence stems from Israeli’s action in Gaza, allow me to remind them that the more than 160,000 people have died in the ongoing Syrian civil war, and the 1980s war between Iran and Iraq cost more than a million lives (source: June 30 Newsweek article by Michael Crowley).

     
  • Nixon’s lasting damage Aug 7, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Richard Cohen: Richard Nixon was virtually a cinematic creation, a man of such character flaws, resentments, hatreds and insecurities that it’s hard to keep your eyes off him. Watergate and the cover-up were his downfall and they were, no doubt about it, breathtaking abuses of power, as obscene as the language he so often used. But what was once drama is now history. Not so the Southern strategy. It fouls our politics to this very day.

     
  • Stop the campus rape numbers game Aug 7, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Catherine Rampell: The Campus Accountability and Safety Act would, among other things, create new transparency standards for U.S. colleges, requiring them to conduct anonymous, standardized, representative surveys about student experiences with sexual violence.
