  • Schmit: Eyes on Five has what you need to know about Week 1 Aug 28, 2014 7:55 AM

  • Griffin: Taxes grow even as property values drop Aug 27, 2014 5:00 AM
    Over five years, the assessed value of property in 44 suburban townships dropped 26.8 percent. At the same time, property tax levies in those areas averaged an 8.3 percent increase.

  • The new face of evil Aug 27, 2014 5:57 PM
    Columnist Richard Cohen: I used to not believe in evil. When Ronald Reagan called the Soviet Union “the evil empire,” I thought it was a dandy phrase but also a confession of ignorance. Reagan had it right, though. The Soviet Union was evil. Now we are facing a different type of evil

    Everyone has a favorite bait or lure, but one key to angling success is to be flexible enough to adapt when none of the usual stuff is working well, as Mike Jackson explains in this week's Outdoors Column, with help from Ned Kehde, the Finesse Fishing guru.

  • Radtke: Social media message hasn’t changed — use it wisely Aug 27, 2014 9:46 PM
    Anyone out there remember Friendster? How about MySpace? I didn’t think so. OK, well maybe some of you remember those social media websites but when they were popular the term social media wasn’t. In fact, a short six years ago there were still those who didn’t think social networking (that’s what it was called then) would ever make it. Oh, how wrong they were.

    Sometimes she can't help herself. M. Eileen Brown gets overwhelmed by the lovely fresh produce at the farmers market and ends up buying more than she can possibly cook. Instead of letting the tomatoes and greenbeans rot on the counter (again) she turned to Alice Waters for a soupy solution.

     
  • Late columnist's spy novel hits silver screen Aug 28, 2014 5:03 AM
    A newspaper man who wrote novels, the late Daily Herald columnist Bill Granger clearly would have something to say about one of his books being made into a movie starring Pierce Brosnan. But what? “He would have just loved this,” Lori Granger says. “It would have been a kick.”
