    A Schaumburg letter to the editor: Let’s see, we currently have a governor who will make about $161,000 in 2013 and mows his lawn with a hand lawn mower. Bold letters in a recent edition indicated that Bruce Rauner made $61 million dollars in 2013.

     
  • Herald editors exude conservatism Oct 24, 2014 1:01 AM
    An Elk Grove Village letter to the editor: How is it that your paper can endorse Mr. Bruce Rauner for the state’s top job? I personally think it is because that top 1 percent always stick together.

     
  • Votes for these two are votes for status quo Oct 24, 2014 1:01 AM
    A South Barrington letter to the editor: Recent letters from Joan Brody (Oct. 4) and Jim Peterson (Oct. 12) praise Tammy Duckworth “ ... for her work to cut waste and fraud in government ...” and “ ... reduce waste in military spending” among other things. but they both neglect to mention Ms. Duckworth’s time as an assistant secretary in the Veterans Affairs for more than two years (2009-2011). The scheduling fiasco where the VA failed to give veterans timely physicals and treatment was occurring. And, the VA was covering up the scheme. Apparently, that sorry episode escaped her.

    A Mundelein letter to the editor: As the race between Republican Bob Dold and Democrat Brad Schneider for Illinois' 10th Congressional District nears Election Day, one thing is abundantly clear to the trustees of Mundelein; only one candidate has made an effort to connect with our vibrant community.

  • Stolman has proven his commitment Oct 24, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Lake Forest letter to the editor: Having spent 28 years in Lake County government and served as executive director of the Lake County Health Department for 18 of those years, I interacted with elected officials on a daily basis. My experience in working with David Stolman as a board member and ultimately his time as chairman on the county board was both professional and rewarding.

  • Let’s limit political commercials Oct 24, 2014 12:01 AM
    A St. Charles letter to the editor: I’m getting tired of all the political commercials, Democrats and Republicans. They’re now getting boring and we still have a few weeks to go to election time and indirectly we taxpayers are paying big bucks.

     
  • Ebola allowed to spiral out of control Oct 24, 2014 12:01 AM
    Ebola allowed to spiral out of control What is wrong with the CDC and the people that run this country? Due to their inability to stand up and control things immediately and take Ebola seriously it is now in the U.S. and spreading. How could the CDC allow a restricted person with an elevated temperature get on an airplane and expose others? Why are they taking an Ebola-stricken patient from one hospital to another when they have no real clue how two nurses were infected by it? Bring the specialists and the equipment to the patient. Why are they taking more risks by bringing the patient across the U.S? And, most importantly why are they leaving our borders open to countries that are epidemic with it? Checking temperatures and thinking this is any kind of preventive measure is absolutely ridiculous. What ever happened to quarantines? Where are the travel restrictions? The stupidity of how this has been handled so far is dumbfounding and scary. And, while they figure out what they are going to do Ebola will spread in the U.S. They are worried about frightening the American public. Too late. Everywhere you go people are talking about this. Why hasn’t our president addressed this to the public in some manner, any manner? By the way, they are saying that economists in the U.S. are worried a travel ban will cause problems to the economy of these countries. If we wind up with a problem here, I can guarantee other countries will ban us from entering their countries. If they had put travel restrictions and quarantines in the first place we wouldn’t have this disease here. Blaming a hospital in Texas is not the answer. Blame those who should have known better up front. And, to make this any kind of a political issue is outlandish. Cheryl Bast South Elgin

     
  • Durbin part of a broken system Oct 23, 2014 1:01 AM
    An Elk Grove Village letter to the editor: There are two things you missed in your endorsement of Sen. Dick Durbin. First, a vote for Sen. Durbin is a vote to keep Harry Reid as the head of the Senate. I think we can all agree that Harry Reid’s policies have been a disaster for this country and that he has got to go. Second, a vote for Sen. Durbin is a vote to continue with the same kind of government we have had for years that hasn’t worked.

     
  • Munger would be beholden to no one Oct 23, 2014 1:01 AM

  • The long wait to get nation on track Oct 23, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: Referring to a recent letter titled “Time for the era of liberalism to end,” I was confused by the writer’s desire to “wrap up this reckless experiment and get back on track.” I don’t know to what “reckless experiment” and “track” was he referring.

  • We’ve moved on from religious bashing Oct 23, 2014 1:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: In his letter “Catholics should remember the past” (Oct. 4), George Blinick makes reference to the problem between the Catholic Church and Galileo.
