    A Lake Zurich letter to the editor: On Saturday, Dec. 13,I was glad to see you covered the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on the front page. However, I was immediately turned off and frustrated by your subtitle that stated: “Cupich praises all worshiping Our Lady of Guadalupe.”

  • Diversity good for neighborhoods Dec 24, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: Thank you for the research showing neighborhoods and schools where minorities are the new majority.

  • Looters were working for someone else Dec 23, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: Who is funding these groups of thugs and opportunists that rotate from one “event” to the next?

  • Appeasing Castro will not stop tyranny Dec 22, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Round Lake letter to the editor: In my mind I can still see the stately Neville Chamberlain waving a copy of a non-aggression pact with Hitler claiming that he had achieved “peace in our time.” History shows that instead of securing peace, Chamberlain (and other pacifists) naively opened the door for World War II

    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: Note to the McCaskey’s: The Chicago Bear fans have been abused and punished enough under your ownership. Please sell the Bears. Mr. Halas must be rolling over in his grave. My son is threatening to become a Packers fan. Oh, the horror of it.

  • Put food on the table for our children Dec 21, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Streamwood letter to the editor: As I listened to MSNBC today talking about the 39 million people who rely on food banks for their food, children who leave school on Friday afternoon and do not receive food until school on Monday, I teared up (even as I type this), thinking, how can we allow this to be?

  • 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.
