    A St. Charles letter to the editor: If the U.S. wants to reduce Russia’s ability to blackmail European nations to not stand up to her aggressions in Ukraine and elsewhere, we ought to sell European nations some of our natural gas.

  • Vow not to shop at these companies Aug 11, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Lindenhurst letter to the editor: We read about Walgreen and other companies leaving America because of the taxes they would have to pay. I want to point out that it is against the tax laws of our country to use a method strictly to avoid taxes or solely as a reduction for a tax benefit.

  • U.S. tax law suppresses job creation Aug 11, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Bartlett letter to the editor: Edd Jarina’s letter of July 29 concerning U.S. companies relocating their headquarters outside the U.S. misses the point. This isn’t surprising since the new media have done an awful job of explaining the issue.

  • Reform tax code to benefit middle class Aug 15, 2014 3:55 PM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: The stampede of corporations threatening to set up headquarters in another country and using “tax inversions” to do this is just another scam on the American taxpayer! Walgreen is the latest to consider this. Not only are they “playing” the politicians, but they already get all kinds of tax loopholes, tax incentives and they keep workers' salaries low so they can hoard their profits offshore.

  • In health crisis, erosions of trust in science are dangerous Aug 10, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Michael Gerson: A prominent AIDS researcher recently recalled for me the panic at the start of the pandemic in the 1980s. Her superiors asked her not to publicize her work because they didn’t want their institution to be known as an “AIDS hospital.”

  • GOP creating its own nightmare over ‘dreamers’ Aug 10, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: I once used the term “spoiled brats” to describe “dreamers,” those young undocumented immigrants brought here by their parents.Yet now I think the real spoiled brats are those House Republicans who -- with no skill for leading the downtrodden -- settle for punishing the defenseless.

  • Editorial: Even in the dark, a school's anniversary matters Aug 10, 2014 1:00 AM
    A Daily Herald uses District 214's centennial to argue that we shouldn't be preoccupied with 'bad news,' that life is a balance of good and bad and that balance should apply to what gets our attention too.

  • Town shuts down; school boss quits; horse racing ban Aug 10, 2014 1:00 AM
    Soapboxing: A reporter's busy week runs the gamut from a town shutting down to horse racing in McHenry County; the heroin epidemic rages on; pension payouts approach salaries. Jim Davis, DuPage/Fox Valley news director, tackles these topics.

  • Durbin’s legislation needs support Aug 10, 2014 5:01 AM
    A letter to the editor: Last week, Walgreen officially announced it will not move its corporate headquarters overseas. Citizen Action/Illinois applauds this decision. We have been a vocal opponent of the proposal to move Walgreen overseas as part of a tax-dodging process known as corporate inversion. It is heartening that in these days of overt corporate greed, we see an American-grown company take heed to what the people care about, which is investments in our own communities.

  • Obama part of problem of immigration Aug 10, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: In their wisdom, our forefathers passed legal immigration laws. There is a reason the immigration laws are the way they are. One reason was to prevent the country from being overwhelmed!

  • ‘Worst’ president label doesn’t fit Aug 10, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: Much is being made of a recent Quinnipiac University poll that rated President Obama the “worst” president since World War II. On July 29, Dennis Johnson’s letter said “ ...the majority of the people in the U.S. think Barack Obama is one of the worst presidents ever.”

  • Herald missed big picture in this story Aug 10, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Wheaton letter to the editor: I commend the Daily Herald for wanting to encourage harmony in all contexts of human relationship. But there is a bigger picture to this story than what the Daily Herald portrayed.

  • He supports smaller McHenry Co. Board Aug 10, 2014 12:01 AM
    A McHenry letter to the editor: The choice for McHenry County Board in District 4 is crystal clear after the board held its last meeting.

  • Simply pity these pathetic creatures Aug 9, 2014 1:01 AM
    A McHnery letter to the editor: Observe perennial malcontents Ward Churchill, Bill Ayers and Michael Moore, spoiled brats living large off the same free market capitalistic system they detest, vilify, openly undermine; wanton hypocrisy on parade.

  • 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.

  • COD president should be commended Aug 9, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Naperville letter to the editor: I retired from College of DuPage 20 years ago after having the honor of serving as president for 16 years. During my tenure, the college’s board and administration worked to have several million dollars that had been allocated but not released made available so we might proceed to build the library/administrative building.

  • Time for compromise on marriage is past Aug 9, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Barrington letter to the editor: Your editorial, “Time to talk, not judge,” is cynical and naive, disgusting in its blatant ahistoric context. A beloved choir director loses his job because he does what every lover wants to do, affirm in a public way his commitment to his lover. The church affirms this for heterosexual couples, but finds homosexual unions a scourge, not because of a clear biblical mandate, but because of its patriarchal beliefs.

  • 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.

  • 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
