  • Police killings no excuse for riots Dec 17, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Glen Ellyn letter to the editor: The AP reprint in today’s paper, “Data on police killings scarce,” is just one more example of the disgustingly biased liberal journalism that seems to pervade today’s “mainstream media.” A more real story would seem to be how does the black community reduce its crime rates and respect others (including cops)?

     
  • CIA torture needed, none of our business Dec 17, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: The CIA detainees’ torture report should never have been released. These Islamic religious zealots are at war with America and the western peoples and they want us dead. After 9/11 with thousands of innocent people dead, we had to get information from the combatants we captured to be able to annihilate the enemy.

     
  • Get the whole truth on Ukraine press Dec 17, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Round Lake Beach letter to the editor: As eyewitness to events at Kiev’s Maidan Square in February of this year, the popular protest did not fell the corrupt-but nevertheless-democratically elected President Yanukovych but an armed coup by fascist and neo-fascists of the extreme Right Sector (Praviy Sector).

     
  • Avoid use of plastic in holiday events Dec 17, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Grayslake letter to the editor: Please consider the environment when planning holiday celebrations and shopping. Household waste increases 25 percent from Thanksgiving to Christmas.

     
  • Two writers misguided on protests, wages Dec 17, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Streamwood letter to the editor: Tracy McGrath in her letter of Dec. 2 says that a protester who walks out of a Ferguson, Mo., store (looting) with goods is clearly not a protester but a criminal. Excuse me? How does she know that? Yes, a looter is a criminal, taking things that don’t belong to him/her, but how does Tracy know that this person is not among the protesters? Simply, she cannot know that unless she was there when this occurred.

     
  • GOP is sidestepping what Americans want Dec 17, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Schaumburg letter to the editor: One item that American people want is comprehensive immigration reform. Last session, the Senate passed such a bill 68-32 in a vote that included 14 Republican senators. The bill was sent to the House where an informal poll showed that it would easily pass, but Speaker John Boehner never brought the bill to the floor for a vote. Now, with a record Republican majority in the House, there is virtually no hope for passage in the next two years.

     
  • Thanks for support of Naperville Lions Dec 16, 2014 12:01 AM
    On behalf of the members of the Naperville Noon Lions Club, I would like to thank the citizens of Naperville and surrounding communities and our sponsors for the overwhelming support which was shown for our 17th annual Turkey Trot.

     
  • ECC remembers Topinka fondly Dec 16, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: As praise and accolades continue to come in for Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka following her tragic death, Elgin Community College also would like to recognize her as a trailblazer and for her tireless dedication to Illinois. She was an ideal example of a true public servant.

     
  • Why so easy on Cantore? Dec 16, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Aurora letter to the editor: After reading the editorial opinion Dec. 10, I was thinking what a good interview DuPage Forest Preserve President Joseph Cantore would be for a follow-up.

     
  • Senators, lead out against carbon pollution Dec 16, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Northbrook letter to the editor: Where are Sen. Dick Durbin and Sen. Mark Kirk on the climate issue? Apparently, they are voting for business as usual by their lack of visibility. When our own Congress fails to let the marketplace reduce our carbon emissions at no cost to the taxpayers by implementing a carbon fee and dividend approach to pollution, we need to ask who they answer to.

     
  • Leaders have failed to protect American jobs Dec 16, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Des Plaines letter to the editor: We sat back for 40 years, like lambs going to slaughter, while our government failed to protect economic development opportunities for folks to better their lives. We watched as the steppingstone, living-wage jobs moved to Asia. We were told education and higher-paying jobs would fill the gap. It has for some, but not for most.

     
  • Obama did right thing on immigration Dec 15, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Libertyville letter to the editor: It is clear that the illegal immigration issue in this country is a political football which enables both parties to score points with their constituents but not an issue to be solved.

     
  • Paper or plastic? Whichever it is, recycle Dec 15, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Libertyville letter to the editor: I looked into the facts, and found that both paper and plastic have problems, though plastic seems to have a modest advantage.

     
  • Sign the bill letting instructors teach Dec 15, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: Gov. Pat Quinn has recently granted 126 clemency petitions. He needs to sign SB 2887, recently passed by both Illinois houses and currently on his desk. SB 2887 will grant clemency to 80-plus adjunct and full-time faculty at Oakton Community College in Des Plaines who are scheduled to be terminated July 1 because of an ill-conceived bill

     
  • 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).
