  • Who are the state’s real big spenders? Nov 21, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Warrenville letter to the editor: If we are to believe a letter-writer from Lombard, and Democrat intellectuals in general, the editors were “bought” on the theory, “that Rauner’s victory shows that with enough money you can buy yourself anything you want.” Bruce Rauner’s victory had nothing to do with Governor Pat Quinn’s crippling taxes and abysmal employment rate in Illinois.

  • Mixed message in preservation decree Nov 21, 2014 1:01 AM
    A Mundelein letter to the editor: How wonderful that Libertyville powers that be have decided that historical preservation is important. But how ironic that this decree should come on the eve of the demolition of the Brainerd Building.

  • School uniforms could reduce problems for kids Nov 21, 2014 10:26 AM
    A Rolling Meadows letter to the editor: I want to tell you about uniforms. I think that students should have uniforms. I say that because a lot of bullying is happening in school, and kids are getting afraid of school.

  • Not electing Romney was a big mistake Nov 21, 2014 10:26 AM
    A Lake Barrington letter to the editor: The recent election has shown that people have had enough. We made a big mistake by re-electing President Obama in 2010, and a bigger mistake by not electing the man who I believe would have been the greatest president in modern times, Mr. Mitt Romney.

  • DuPage GOP takes credit for Dem idea Nov 20, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elmhurst letter to the editor: Springfield legislators can take a lesson or two from the DuPage Republicans in how to take advantage of an issue raised by one of their opponents. The Republicans on the county board had no interest in dealing with the O’Hare noise problem that affects so many residents in the northern part of DuPage.

  • Obama ‘failures’ didn’t come true Nov 20, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: I just returned from the Florida panhandle. The beach is sugar white sand, the water a stunning turquoise. The Louisiana oysters large and delicious. I remembered how harshly President Obama was criticized for his “mishandling” of the massive Gulf oil spill disaster.

  • Duckworth series sent inspiring message Nov 20, 2014 5:00 AM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: I wanted to thank you for running the series of articles on Tammy Duckworth’s military career and her remarkable recovery from horrific war injuries. Her strength and courage are extraordinary and an inspiration for so many others.

  • Lame duck politicians can do damage Nov 20, 2014 5:00 AM
    An Inverness letter to the editor: Now that the elections are over, it will be interesting to see which unpopular bills are pushed through by those who are leaving. Note which lame duck politicians who no longer have to worry about re-election vote in favor of them.

  • Byrne was tenacious, courageous as mayor Nov 20, 2014 5:00 AM
    A Northbrook letter to the editor: I met Jane Byrne on several occasions. She was a tough cookie and a remarkable woman, especially for her time. Following our very first meeting I may have been the first to publicly predict to a friend in attendance at our meeting, that “one day, Jane Byrne will be the mayor of Chicago.”

  • Predictions on what the GOP might do Nov 21, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: Now that the shoe is on the other foot (Republicans), let’s see what they will do. • Impeach Obama • Destroy the Affordable Care Act in spite of the fact that seven million people now have in medical insurance.

  • Disconnect between votes for Rauner, initiatives Nov 19, 2014 5:00 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: Illinois had a few ballot initiatives, and one involved the minimum wage. Sixty-seven percent of the people in Illinois voted to increase the minimum wage from $8.25 to $10. Bruce Rauner is quoted as saying, I have said, on a number of occasions, that we could have a lower minimum wage or no minimum wage as part of increasing Illinois competitiveness. Bruce Rauner won 50.77 percent of the vote to become the next governor of Illinois. Do you see the disconnect?

  • Retreat from ads starts with a book Nov 19, 2014 5:00 AM
    A Schaumburg letter to the editor: After months of campaign ads, they finally stopped on Nov. 3. Is there really a need to have started Black Friday ads on Nov. 4?

  • Illinois uninterested in voter ID law Nov 18, 2014 12:01 AM
    A Naperville letter to the editor: Your Sunday edition of Nov. 16 contained a column by Catherine Rampell from the Washington Post writers group. In this column, Ms. Rampell asserted that voter ID laws amount to voter suppression, and that these laws in fact changed the outcome of “some of the closest races this month.”

  • Thank you, Mr. President Nov 18, 2014 12:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the edditor: In Paul Carrozzo’s letter on Nov. 15, he states about President Obama: “His failed economics policies ... and unpopular health care law ... were all rejected by the American people.” Well that may be his opinion but the facts show otherwise.

  • Perhaps Congress can function now Nov 18, 2014 5:00 PM
    A Buffalo Grove letter to the editor: President Obama continues to blame House Republicans as the “do nothing” Congress. The actual fact is that, over the past few years, the Republican led House has sent the Democrat-led Senate 347 bills. Harry Reid has not allowed one bill to be debated or voted on.

  • Voter registration mix-up turned out OK Nov 18, 2014 5:00 PM
    A Barrington letter to the editor: I agree almost 100 percent with Mr. Donahue (“A modification for same-day registration,” Nov. 8), but my wife ran into a problem on Election Day. We went to the polling place we’ve used for over 20 years (and we vote in every election). I signed in and voted, but they told my wife they had no record of her and that she had to go the Hoffman Estates city hall to register and vote.

  • Presidential candidates must unite nation Nov 18, 2014 5:00 PM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: Kudos to Richard Cohen for illuminating the fact that the nation is weary of Hillary Clinton already. To me, it appears she has not announced her candidacy because the Democrats in charge have realized it, too. The longer she is out there, the Benghazi TV snippet and other issues will be easy fodder for the Republicans if not her own Party opponents in the primaries.

  • Government. The best money can buy. Nov 17, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Elgin letter to the editor: We are rapidly moving toward the “best government that money can buy.” This is true both in Illinois and throughout the country.

  • Exodus of public employees? C’mon. Nov 17, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Wood Dale letter to the editor: Metra has given raises of 15 percent and more. Like every other public employer organization, they use the justification of hiring and retaining employees.

  • Share the word about volunteerism Nov 17, 2014 5:01 AM
    A McHenry letter to the editor: In McHenry County, there are more than 58,000 volunteer needs met annually. It’s the passion and will to give of the volunteers that keep our community running. But when’s the last time you spoke about it? We all have volunteered in some way or the other. Whether it was for a food pantry or just your neighbor, you volunteer ... now talk about it!
