  • Nazi policy was anti-Christian Dec 15, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: I would like to correct two gross historical falsehoods in the letter by Mr. Lowry on Dec. 6 that stated the Nazis were complicit with Christian churches regarding atrocities, and soldiers of the German army were also Nazis who adopted “Gott Mit Uns” (God with us) as a slogan. Completely wrong.

     
  • Silence on Pearl Harbor was insult to veterans Dec 15, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: Failure to not only commemorate Dec. 7, but to totally ignore it without a single printed word on its anniversary, is a grave insult to those servicemen and women who served and sacrificed so we all could live in a safer world.

     
  • Utilities must be held accountable Dec 15, 2014 5:01 AM
    A letter to the editor: ComEd customers received a bit of good news this holiday season in the form of a $46 million refund. The refund, on November electric bills, was accepted by ComEd under a legal settlement. It culminates a seven-year legal battle Attorney General Lisa Madigan and the Citizens Utility Board mounted to hold the utility accountable for unwarranted costs factored into two separate cases before state regulators in 2007.

     
  • Halas would slap look off Cutler’s face Dec 15, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Carol Stream letter to the editor: We’ve all seen some pretty lousy Bears teams over the past many years, but this one really stinks. This, for a city so rich in sports history, including the founding of the National Football League and all of the Halas history, is inexcusable.

     
  • ‘Does not work’ label wrong Dec 15, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Oswego letter to the editor: One of the great canards of our time is that torture does not work. A basic tenet of behavior modification is that nonreinforced responses extinguish, i.e., ineffective methods are abandoned because they fail to produce desired results. Torture is probably as old as our species. Were it ineffective, it would not have survived the 200-millennial trek of our species whose survival and propagation depended upon skillful discovery and implementation of things that work.

     
  • Remember what happened on 9/11 Dec 15, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: I assume I am in the minority and have never been very politically correct. But I do remember Sept. 11, 2001. I remember the fear on the faces of many of the suburbanites as they waited to board a train to take them home. We were attacked without warning by a minority group of terrorists who hate us just because we are who we are (of course, we trained them to be pilots).

     
  • Terrorists’ actions much worse Dec 15, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Algonquin letter to the editor: Why is Congress (Diane Feinstein) wasting all this time and resources, including taxpayer money, on all of this CIA business? After what these terrorists did to us on 9/11 all bets should be off. All measures should be taken to avoid any more American bloodshed.

     
  • Leaders’ politics betray us all Dec 15, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Wheeling letter to the editor: Sleep deprivation, simulated drowning, slapping, ice baths, waterboarding, diaper-wearing of terrorist murderers, humiliations. Now compare this with 2,995 horrific deaths of innocent victims on 9/11 and the ever-growing number of beheadings and deaths of additional innocents. Which of these scenarios should produce the greatest revulsion, the greatest indignation and horror?

     
  • Riots make it hard to sympathize Dec 14, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Vernon Hills letter to the editor: I’ve tried very hard to be open-minded about the racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, but I’ve found it increasingly difficult in light of the massive property destruction and violence.

     
  • Address school funding, taxes together Dec 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Villa Park letter to the editor: Last spring, a senator from downstate introduced a plan that would change how the state funds its schools, siphoning money away from many suburban school districts and giving it to Chicago and downstate schools. I voted against this plan in the Senate.

     
  • Don’t expect perfect resolutions in police work Dec 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: One can surmise that all police officers are not perfect, but one can also surmise that society is not perfect either. In fact, some segments of society are completely dysfunctional, considering murderers, rapists, thieves, muggers, child molesters, wife beaters, girlfriend beaters, those who don’t pay child support, and so many others who behave unlawfully

     
  • Unique mental health program Dec 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Aurora letter to the editor: The Association for Individual Development is the grateful recipient of a $24,925 grant from the INC Board, NFP to be used toward the “Living Room” program.

     
  • Extracurriculars for the home-schooled Dec 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: At Larkin High School in Elgin, home-schooled kids are not allowed to participate in extracurricular activities or have access to resources provided by public schools unless they are enrolled for a certain amount of credit hours.

     
  • All sorts of trouble with our local elections Dec 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    Name a problem, our local elections have it: Low turnout. Too many offices. Too few candidates. Bad timing. And now, says DuPage/Fox Valley News Director Jim Davis, hordes of school board candidates have to file in far fewer places.

     
  • Editorial: All the reasons we want to be Facebook friends Dec 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Daily Herald editorial explains how the Daily Herald fan page on Facebook acts as an extension of the newspaper but, even more than that, makes the case for how it increases the connection between the paper and its audience to create a partnership beyond any that could have existed a few years ago.

     
  • Time to get over the litmus test Dec 14, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: It is probably too soon to declare a feminist reformation, but a few signs here and there give one hope.

     
  • President oversteps his authority Dec 13, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Lake Bluff letter to the editor: On Nov. 20, President Obama acted with unprecedented executive powers to grant legal status and new protections to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants.

     
  • Post office doing the best it can Dec 13, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: This is to comment on a submission from Joan Gordon of Hoffman Estates that was published in the Daily Herald Dec. 4. In her comment, she talked about leaving packages.

     
  • Are travel teams really worth it? Dec 13, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Wheaton letter to the editor: A local team will be competing for the Pop Warner Championships. My first response is congratulations to the young athletes who have worked so hard to get there. Second response: This is one of those Onion hoaxes, right? Who sends a 10-year-old to Florida to play football?

     
  • Finally, the truth about Obamacare Dec 13, 2014 5:01 AM
    Well, finally we get the truth about Obamacare. No not from Obama. He seems to have a problem with the truth. From a man who was the chief architect of the entire bill, Professor Johnathon Gruber of MIT.
