  • Whose war on women? Oct 2, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Kathleen Parker: Let’s be clear. The war on women is based on just one thing — abortion rights. While it is true that access to abortion has been restricted in several states owing to Republican efforts, it is not true that women as a whole care only or mostly about abortion.

  • Griffin: Why gas tax distribution varies in suburbs Oct 1, 2014 5:01 AM
    When Wheeling has to fix its roads, the village can count on $14,096 per mile in motor fuel taxes disbursed by the state. North Barrington gets just $3,647 a mile. The towns are the two extremes among 73 suburbs analyzed by the Daily Herald. Funding swings widely among different towns because motor fuel tax revenue — which comes from taxes drivers pay at the pump — is distributed to towns by population, rather than taking into account road mileage.

  • For-profit colleges earn their bad rep Oct 1, 2014 12:48 PM

    Joe Girardi loves managing the Yankees, his family's happy and he's making huge dollars. The timing was simply wrong in the fall of 2013. But the way things are shaping up, the math might produce a different result in the fall of 2015.

     
  • St. Edward’s story is waiting for a championship ending Oct 1, 2014 10:06 PM
    I’ve been kidding St. Edward coach Mike Rolando for the last couple of years to hurry up and win a state championship so we can write a book already. Well, partly kidding anyway.Of all the interesting stories on the Fox Valley prep sports beat over the last decade, none would merit elaboration in book form more than the revival and eventual rise to a state championship of St. Edward football.

  • Introspection time for evangelicals Sep 30, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Michael Gerson: It is fair to say that some cultural views traditionally held by evangelicals are in retreat. Whatever the (likely dim) future of political libertarianism, moral libertarianism has been on the rise.

     
  • Conservatives’ short memories on school protests Sep 30, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: What’s really at the heart of that story from 2010 where five students at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif., conspired to wear T-shirts bearing the American flag? Was it patriotism? Or petulance?

     
  • Eat right, live well: You can’t beat the benefits of beets Sep 30, 2014 6:01 AM
    There are more than 60 types of sugar but I bet you rarely think of beets as a sugar source. Yet beets are higher in natural sugar than carrots and even corn. Beets are a vibrant purple-red root vegetable that add beautiful color to our plates and important nutrients to our diet. A 3-ounce serving of beets contains 8 grams of carbohydrate and about 35 calories.

     
  • Jews observe High Holy Days in Catholic church Sep 30, 2014 5:48 AM

    Not a bird watcher, you say? Well, our Jeff Reiter is out to convince you that birding is the hobby for you.

  • Statistics can be tricky things, and the new eye in the sky Sep 30, 2014 6:32 PM
    By every measure, St. Francis senior defensive lineman Quinn Calcagno put in a career performance against Hales Franciscan in last weekend’s 29-0 victory.
