  • The truth is obvious: Cutler cannot play Dec 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Niles letter to the editor: It has to be perplexing to all Bears fans that the one person who finally spoke out with utter verity about the continual woes of Jay Cutler gets thrown under the bus by Bears management. Were Aaron Kromer’s recent comments any different from what Mike Ditka or Buddy Ryan would say in public about an underachieving player? How sad that the Bears management is so clueless that a coach cannot say what everyone else knows: our quarterback stinks and is a major reason why the Bears stink.

  • Catholic Church isn’t the only religion out there Dec 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Bartlett letter to the editor: I’ve always been taught that true reporting of the news is done without any bias. You act as if the only important religion is Catholicism. You seem to bend over backward to breathlessly inform of us of “His Holiness” the pope, or the recently installed head of the Catholic Church in Chicago.

  • Story on DVD about vets made a difference Dec 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Libertyville letter to the editor: I would like to thank Burt Constable for publishing the story on Nov. 9 about the movie “America Will Never Forget Their Sacrifices.”

  • Elgin does not have a park district Dec 20, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: Thank you for publishing the interview with Elgin mayoral candidate Joseph Galvan. Residents need to learn all they can about those who wish to lead our community.

  • Use of body cameras has helped the public Dec 19, 2014 4:14 PM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: The massive public reaction to the tragic deaths of three black men at the hand of white police officers has led to a national call for use of body cameras to record and prevent any future mistreatment of suspects. There is ample precedent.

  • Find the spirit of Santa within ourselves Dec 19, 2014 4:14 PM
    A Buffalo Grove letter to the editor: Back in 1960, I cried when my third-grade teacher pulled six of us aside and told us there was no Santa Claus. It was a devastating heartbreak I can still picture today. Many children believe in you. Many grown-ups count on you to drive the economy at this time of the year.

  • The superrich are destroying opportunity Dec 19, 2014 4:14 PM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: Wal-Mart employs about 1.5 million people in the U.S., and the average worker there makes about the same. Meanwhile, the Walton family is worth over $150 billion, more than the bottom 33 percent of Americans combined. The increasing cost of higher education limits opportunities to specialize, and it is delusional to think that everyone in this country is afforded an equal opportunity.

  • Don’t feel threatened by Christmas music Dec 19, 2014 4:14 PM
    A Wheeling letter to the editor: For years Christmas was celebrated as “the birth of Christ.” Today it has become very commercial and celebrated more with Santa, holiday songs, and lit-up houses, buildings and parks. Nothing is wrong with this, but people should remember this is a celebration of Christ, our Savior’s birth, for Christians.

  • Accept that global warming will affect you Dec 19, 2014 4:14 PM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: Why deny global warming? People distrust politicians and media. Some can’t accept the possible impact on them, so they go into denial. People see climate as what is happening to them where they are at any one time.

  • Feinstein’s motives are un-American Dec 19, 2014 4:15 PM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: In releasing the CIA reports, Sen. Diannee Feinstein showed her true colors. She’s losing her chair in the Senate on Jan. 1, and she is getting even.

  • Brown had the power to prevent being shot Dec 19, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Rolling Meadows letter to the editor: When will the law become the law that people follow? The recent riots in Ferguson, Mo., resulted from a crime. Michael Brown broke the law when he performed a strong-armed robbery and assaulted the shop owner, then assaulted a police officer in his squad car. Those are crimes.

  • Obama team going the wrong direction Dec 19, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Elk Grove Village letter to the editor: If the Obama administration were a football team, they would be losing by three touchdowns going into the fourth quarter. But instead of trying to score points, they try to destroy the stadium.

  • Minorities have made tremendous gains Dec 19, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Inverness letter to the editor: After a long struggle, the promise of the great, liberating 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments was fulfilled 50 years ago by passage of bipartisan-supported, far-reaching civil rights legislation, strengthened and vigorously enforced by every successive administration.

  • Accept responsible terminal proposal Dec 19, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Grayslake letter to the editor: As outlined in Grayslake Village Board and Lake County Board documents, Saia Inc.has directly addressed local concerns, apparently to the unanimous satisfaction of the Grayslake Village Board.

  • Turkey’s president not fit for office Dec 18, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Glen Ellyn letter to the editor: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has recently stated that women are not equal to men and that the true purpose of a woman is to be a mother. “It is against nature,” he said on why women are not equal to men. This is outrageous.

  • We’re a society crippled by caffeine Dec 18, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Glen Ellyn letter to the editor: When walking down the street or through the halls of a school, you’ll see several caffeinated drinks in people’s hands. Nowadays people seem solely dependent on coffee and other caffeinated drinks to function on a daily basis, and this doesn’t seem like a positive trend.

  • Congress passing bills not knowing details Dec 18, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Des Plaines letter to the editor: Why do we work these important decisions under the cover of darkness and at the final hour? Answer: Our broken legislative system, both the House and Senate, do not consider the details of the bill. They negotiate decisions without details.

  • A clarification on the local Ebola scare Dec 18, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: In the Dec. 10 Your Views section, Mark Scales of Libertyville demonstrated in his comments, titled “Hospital scare deserved more focus,” that he did not realize the recent Ebola scare was not at Northwest Community Hospital, but at an NCH doctors office on Rand Road in Arlington Heights.

  • Don’t surrender reason to religious extremists Dec 18, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Mundelein letter to the editor: I would like to respond to Robert Clark’s Nov. 30 letter titled “Message of religion went off track.” Looking at the history of most religions, one finds an unfortunate record of atrocities.

  • Separation of church, state a value to keep Dec 18, 2014 1:50 PM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: The religious right’s continuous efforts to inject their brand of religion into our schools, government and way of life is both disturbing and dangerous. It has created a backlash causing the pendulum to swing from a comfortable “reasonably acceptable” to an annoying “politically ridiculous.”
