  • Spots for disabled on church lawn Jul 25, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Wheaton letter to the editor: I was surprised to read the article stating that a woman was unable to find a spot in the 500 block of North Main Street where she and her disabled parents could watch the Glen Ellyn 4th of July parade.

     
  • Only one goal for ‘progressive’ Dems Jul 25, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Batavia letter to the editor: Democratic Illinois Governor Quinn and the other progressives, who no longer want to be referred to as liberals, are avoiding many important issues that the citizens of Illinois expected them to cast a vote.

     
  • Obama didn’t invent $4-per-gallon gas Jul 25, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Wheaton letter to the editor: The author of the July 18 letter, “Time to stop Bush blame game,” would like to blame President Obama for prices at the gas pump. He says, “When Bush left office, gas was $1.88 a gallon. Now gas is $3.75.”

     
  • Senate is missing the important issues Jul 25, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Hoffman Estates letter to the editor: The political maneuvering in Washington, D.C., is disheartening. Instead of dealing with the major issues affecting our country the Senate introduced a bill to override the Supreme Court ruling on Hobby Lobby’s religious freedom.

     
  • Congress has a short time to do nothing Jul 25, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: All the letters I read from writers to Fence Post from those who are constantly berating President Obama should be interested in this tidbit. For the rest of the year (five months) the U.S. House of Representatives has all of 26 days on its calendar. Does anyone really think anything will get accomplished?

     
  • Choose more credible columnist than Brazile Jul 25, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: Columnist Donna Brazile had a column in the Daily Herald on July 7 which, judging by the title, was the Herald’s intent to give readers an unbiased information piece about the need for long-term refunding of the Highway Trust Fund. However, true to form, Ms. Brazile took the opportunity to blame the delay in funding on some members of Congress (without stating which party she had in mind) because “some road-rage members of Congress want to make repealing Obamacare, or adding pet projects like permanent tax breaks for the rich, as a condition for funding.”

     
  • The case for driverless cars Jul 24, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: When I read the Daily Herald article on driverless cars on April 29, I had to think about that one for a while. In case nobody has noticed, we have had driverless cars on the streets for several years now.

     
  • Administration ineptitude won’t end Jul 24, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Glendale Heights letter to the editor: When are Americans going to wake up to this administration, led by the president? I can only hope he is naive and/or inexperienced.

     
  • Educate, don’t force workers to save for retirement Jul 24, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Schaumburg letter to the editor: In the July 14 Your Views section, state Sens. Daniel Bliss and Michael Frerichs tout the Secure Choice Savings Program as the answer for people who do not save for retirement. What they neglect to recognize or share with the readers is that payroll deduction retirement savings plans already exist.

     
  • Let immigrants call White House home Jul 24, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: President Obama is scrambling to find places to billet all the children swarming illegally across our Southern border. My suggestion: Give them lodging in the White House.

     
  • Don’t ignore tips on water safety Jul 24, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Libertyville letter to the editor: The lure of a refreshing swim on a hot day is hard to resist; however, swimming off a boat has unique and often unforeseen dangers.

     
  • Attempt to poison dog was dangerous, cowardly Jul 23, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Hawthorn Woods letter to the editor: An open letter to a coward in Hawthorn Woods: So, you think it is an acceptable act for you to pepper someone's yard with mothballs, some hidden away in meat.

     
  • Extended runway would give citizens nothing Jul 23, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Wheeling letter to the editor: Mr. E. Allan Englehardt’s recent common-sense Guest View about the Chicago Executive Airport should be heeded by the CEA commission and the elected officials of Wheeling and Prospect Heights. These two towns, which own the airport, derive no income from its operations except for the taxes paid for gasoline it sells.

     
  • In heinous cases, death penalty appropriate Jul 23, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Des Plaines letter to the editor: This is a problem that is short and simple. A person has been found guilty of stabbing a family member in the face and chest; also, the daughter is sliced in many places. To me the death penalty is the proper solution.

     
  • Tea Party embarrasses nation Jul 23, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Huntlet letter to the editor: David Pinter pointed out that spending $100 million on a presidential library in Illinois is a waste since Illinois can’t provide “basic services.” I agree, the Obama Library should be privately funded. The last thing the library needs is to have Republicans, who have done everything possible to discredit the president, controlling its funding, location, size or content.

     
  • Why no change in this legislature? Jul 23, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Naperville letter to the editor: After more than 35 years of the same people running the legislature, the state of Illinois is nearly bankrupt. We have the lowest credit rating among all 50 states. We have billions of dollars in unfunded pensions for teachers and other government employees

     
  • Chicago only studies O’Hare noise woes Jul 22, 2014 12:01 AM
    A West Chicago letter to the editor: With all due respect to Arelene Mulder of the O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission, the only thing the commission is doing and has done over the many years is dole out soundproofing.

     
  • Baffling high court ruling on benefits Jul 22, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Sleepy Hollow letter to the editor: How could six of seven Illinois Supreme Court justices rule that state retiree health benefits are protected when the constitution is silent on such a benefit? The unprecedented ruling was founded on the premise that it was not the intent of constitution drafters to protect “only” core pension benefits.

     
  • Reid owes Justice Thomas an apology Jul 22, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: Sen. Harry Reid does not appear to be very bright; however, there may be a legitimate reason for his mendacious claims. In addressing the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case, Mr. Reid stated that the decision for the women of the United States had been made by five white males.

     
  • Editors shouldn’t decide who’s right, wrong Jul 22, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: The July 1 letter from Jeff Slepak was very interesting. His statement at the end in which he urges everyone to use logical arguments, verifiable facts and state opinions as opinions is nice in theory, but impractical. I disagree with everything else.
