  • Vote out politicians who have no guts Aug 19, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Rolling Meadows letter to the editor: Durbin and the other politicians of this country, both state and federal, along with the media are playing us for dummies again. They make Walgreen out to be the bad guy to divert attention from the fact that they are too gutless to close the loopholes in the tax laws. Who were the people who wrote the laws to favor certain companies, and passed various corporate welfare laws in the first place? You’re right, the same politicians who will not stand up for simplifying and making our tax laws clearer and fairer for everyone.

  • President has a lot to put up with Aug 18, 2014 5:01 AM
    An Arlington Heights letter to the editor: What a lot of hogwash by the writer who recently claimed President Obama has caused the illegal immigration of children from the south.

  • Gutierrez fails to serve Illinoisans Aug 18, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Palatine letter to the editor: I was of the impression that Congressman Luis Gutierrez was elected by citizens in the Illinois 4th Congressional District. I was unaware that he also represents El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. I wonder if the people in the 4th District feel they are truly being represented by Mr. Gutierrez since he seems to spend the majority of his time running around the U.S. arguing for the rights of the millions who have broken U.S. law by coming here illegally.

     
  • Financial clout shouldn’t win votes Aug 18, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Bartlett letter to the editor: While it is easy to criticize officials currently in office on all levels — county, state and federal — I believe if Bruce Rauner were truly honest and sincere in his quest to help the state of Illinois, instead of finding fault Rauner could use his personal wealth to take Illinois out of debt.

  • Community-based hives would protect the honeybee Aug 18, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Mount Prospect letter to the editor: The constant articles about extinction of species, pollutants and climate change are unnerving. One noteworthy problem that can affect the world food supply is the plight of a tiny insect the size of a fingernail — the honey bee, which pollinates a high percentage of our food. The results of this pending extinction would be grim and serious. Pesticides are to blame and so I ask, why are such killers permitted?

     
  • March to raise awareness of climate change Aug 18, 2014 5:01 AM
