  • Column sparked memories of past service Nov 24, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Des Plaines letter to the editor: Michael Gerson’s Oct. 28 column on the L’Arche program for the disabled was a very touching piece that brought to mind the years I spent working with Spred, an agency of the Archdiocese of Chicago.

  • Article unclear on denying would-be voters Nov 23, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Grayslake letter to the editor: Specifically, what documents are people being required to produce to prove that they are eligible to vote?

  • GOP provides answer to ‘disconnect’ question Nov 23, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Mettawa letter to the editor: Although there clearly are an increasingly number of people who want something for nothing, my theory is that they’re tired of empty promises from the same old ineffective leaders.

  • Retired Oakton teachers have much to offer Nov 23, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Skokie letter to the editor: Oakton is in the business of educating, not depriving students of the decades of experience and knowledge these teachers have. These teachers have sound reputations in their departments and are sought-after teachers. The students deserve a chance to study with them.

  • New Senate will only add to gridlock Nov 23, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Hoffman Estates letter to the editor: As a firmly liberal-side voter, I found last week’s election results very concerning. I’m not a fan of either Bruce Rauner or Mr. Madigan, so I look forward to seeing the irresistible force go hammer and tong against the immovable object in Illinois politics.

  • Fix the side streets, too, please Nov 23, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: While many busy highways like Route 20 receive attention for crucial adjustment, some other roads have yet to see any type of repair. Although repairing or altering roads, such as highways, are very important for people who have to commute to reach their destinations, there should be more focus on fixing less significant streets that haven’t seen kinder days these past few years.

  • The true role of an ‘investor’ Nov 23, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Wood Dale letter to the editor: The media uses Wall Street and investor as if they were the same. These are not investors but greedy stockbrokers, investment funds, day traders and even computers.

  • Herald to run next Tammy campaign? Nov 23, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Huntley letter to the editor: Enough already. We get it, and everybody in the Daily Herald’s reading audience should well have known a long time ago that Rep. Tammy Duckworth’s legs were amputated due to combat.

  • Obamacare came to us through deception Nov 22, 2014 5:00 AM
    A Bartlett letter to the editor: The Nov. 14 story in the Daily Herald echoes the reality of the five videos, dating to 2011, in which Jonathan Gruber, the major architect of the Affordable care Act, or Obamacare, now admits to deception and lies as a method to pass this legislation. His comments reinforce what most in the GOP had said, but that, alas, the media in concert with the Democratic Party wouldn’t report.

  • Archbishop should reach out to St. James Nov 22, 2014 5:00 AM
    A Cary letter to the editor: I urgently request of you, Archbishop Blase Cupich, as one of your first official actions that you contact the pastor of St. James Catholic Church in Arlington Heights urging him to embrace a new model in addressing the newly released, more-detailed files of priests

  • Hospice care can benefit Alzheimer’s patients Nov 22, 2014 5:00 AM
    A letter to the editor: The recent death of Tom Magliozzi, co-host of NPR’s popular show “Car Talk,” from complications of Alzheimer’s disease is a reminder that dementia is a terminal illness. While Alzheimer’s is just one type of dementia, it accounts for at least 60 percent to 80 percent of all dementia cases, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. People don’t often think of Alzheimer’s as a terminal condition, but it is a crippling affliction that slowly robs the brain of its ability to direct normal bodily function.

  • Who are the state’s real big spenders? Nov 21, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Warrenville letter to the editor: If we are to believe a letter-writer from Lombard, and Democrat intellectuals in general, the editors were “bought” on the theory, “that Rauner’s victory shows that with enough money you can buy yourself anything you want.” Bruce Rauner’s victory had nothing to do with Governor Pat Quinn’s crippling taxes and abysmal employment rate in Illinois.

  • Mixed message in preservation decree Nov 21, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Mundelein letter to the editor: How wonderful that Libertyville powers that be have decided that historical preservation is important. But how ironic that this decree should come on the eve of the demolition of the Brainerd Building.

  • School uniforms could reduce problems for kids Nov 21, 2014 10:26 AM
    A Rolling Meadows letter to the editor: I want to tell you about uniforms. I think that students should have uniforms. I say that because a lot of bullying is happening in school, and kids are getting afraid of school.

  • Not electing Romney was a big mistake Nov 21, 2014 10:26 AM
    A Lake Barrington letter to the editor: The recent election has shown that people have had enough. We made a big mistake by re-electing President Obama in 2010, and a bigger mistake by not electing the man who I believe would have been the greatest president in modern times, Mr. Mitt Romney.

  • DuPage GOP takes credit for Dem idea Nov 20, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elmhurst letter to the editor: Springfield legislators can take a lesson or two from the DuPage Republicans in how to take advantage of an issue raised by one of their opponents. The Republicans on the county board had no interest in dealing with the O’Hare noise problem that affects so many residents in the northern part of DuPage.

  • Obama ‘failures’ didn’t come true Nov 20, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: I just returned from the Florida panhandle. The beach is sugar white sand, the water a stunning turquoise. The Louisiana oysters large and delicious. I remembered how harshly President Obama was criticized for his “mishandling” of the massive Gulf oil spill disaster.

  • Duckworth series sent inspiring message Nov 20, 2014 5:00 AM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: I wanted to thank you for running the series of articles on Tammy Duckworth’s military career and her remarkable recovery from horrific war injuries. Her strength and courage are extraordinary and an inspiration for so many others.

  • Lame duck politicians can do damage Nov 20, 2014 5:00 AM
    An Inverness letter to the editor: Now that the elections are over, it will be interesting to see which unpopular bills are pushed through by those who are leaving. Note which lame duck politicians who no longer have to worry about re-election vote in favor of them.

  • Byrne was tenacious, courageous as mayor Nov 20, 2014 5:00 AM
    A Northbrook letter to the editor: I met Jane Byrne on several occasions. She was a tough cookie and a remarkable woman, especially for her time. Following our very first meeting I may have been the first to publicly predict to a friend in attendance at our meeting, that “one day, Jane Byrne will be the mayor of Chicago.”
