Absolutely crazy that we are this far into the pandemic and we don’t have an easy source for information. A national COVID page with a click to your zip code is like a no-brainer. Instead, most every source of information (DH included) mentions going to a website without providing a specific a link or address, where typically some state or county health department that has been quoted but again sends you into the abyss of over-information, trying to be so specific on a general info website. Websites can be created in minutes; why has this taken months and still nothing?
There are more restaurant/bar establishments in the Elgin area now ignoring the regulations than there are restaurants/bars that are limiting their businesses to outdoor and take-out business. I will only take my business to the businesses that comply with health regulations. The local Mayors/Village Presidents express their alarm and concerns for the safety of their citizenry regarding the pandemic, however, these hypocrites are doing nothing to enforce the Covid restrictions, which would certainly reduce exposure and infection. Our local elected officials, the State and Governor Pritzker are losing face by not pushing enforcement with the many tools that they have available.
It’s time to protect our American Dream. Let's all Hard Working American Democrats , Republicans, Independents, come together and help President Trump win 4 more years. I genuinely appreciate and request all our friends across the country please make sure all our friends , families and our neighbors have voted for President Trump and all Republican candidates ⛳️
What happened at the trump rally in Geneva yesterday?
I appreciate you.
Regarding the High court: Employers can balk on birth control. Is it sexual bias against women that men will still be able to receive Vi**ra through their insurance?
Let's End Racism. We establish daycare for all children from birth through preschool as part of the education system and include diversity. Parents would be encouraged to participate in day to day activities. Racism could be eliminated within a generation as children learn more in their first three years than they do for the rest of their lives. The elimination of this hatred would save billions if not trillions of dollars each year.
Why did Walgreens on Roosevelt in Glen Ellyn close?
Today’s editorial marks the low after mark in my respect for the editorial integrity of the daily herald. The editorial and the Governor it quotes would appear to be either ignorant of, or actually hostile to, people of faith and their needs. At a minimum it is highly insulting to many of us who believe that our spiritual health is as significant a component of our pursuit of happiness as our physical well being. To be subject to the condescending lecture by you and the governor that “It’s not just about yourselves;“ is demeaning for a group of people for whom love of neighbor on responsibility to them is a fundamental tenant of faith. Why do you think we and our church leaders have for so long acquiesced in such a clearly unconstitutional restriction on he free exercise of religion. The constitution itself would seem to infer that the exercise of religion is an essential service. If the governor and health officials, not to mention most church leaders, were true leaders they would have set about early on in this process to develop guidelines which could facilitate the free exercise of religion in a safe and responsible fashion. Our leaders have abrogated their responsibility to people of faith. While they have found ways to accommodate all sorts of groups from golfers to abortion seekers yet when it comes to church services just say know. Hypocrisy and discrimination at its unconstitutional worst. Why? Really be honest. Why? I can infer from your editorial that “without a doubt” you view people of faith and congregations as being a group of selfish and irresponsible needy people who care for nothing other than milling about and hugging one another. While I will acknowledge that many good church people i know are more open to sharing their love for another I find them also a people for whom obedience to legitimate authority is a fundamental value. We miss the spiritual nourishment we receive from participate in public worship that we are more than willing to adhere to reasonable measure to avoid jeopardizing the community at large. Time for the DH to demonstrate some real leadership in he community instead government line. join the people of faith in demanding of government and church leaders establish constitutional ways to open up our churches. A newspaper should ne an the forefront of protecting all constitutional freedoms not just that of the press. (Also find it somewhat ironic that on the same day you publish and editorial supporting widespread limits on the free exercise of religion you print a story promoting the opening of a Planned parenthood clinic. Taking of an inconvenient human life seems to be implicitly more important than religious expression). Perhaps we need to go to Target, Walmart, Menards or Home Depot and ask them if they could set aside a little space to accommodate worship services Even though these are jsut a few examples places where you can surely count on full compliance with Covid guidelines. Why can we trust mobs fighting for packages of toilet paper, hamburger and hand sanitizers to social distance but we can’t trust those who wish to give honor and glory to God to do so in a safe and orderly fashion. It couldn’t possibly be because there is no tax revenue in it? Could It?
An open letter to Gov. Pritzker, IDFPR/BCENT and general media. Why is our industry publicly classified as “non essential” with jokes & memes of a 6' service? Yet we "as an industry" are trained & educated on infection control and standard precautions. Many paid for our education through state and federal student loans-with interest. While we work in salons, spas and barber shops we also work in schools, photo studios, retailers, theatres, film & television, hospitals & cancer centers. Explain to them how "non-essential" we are. While we're being ridiculed, we are making plans and accommodations with additional logical precautions on how we will safely reopen. Suggestions put forth by the Professional Beauty Association, Barbicide, even ISHA are the guidelines we need to safely reopen. Most of the general public are unaware we're not necessarily employees but self-employed; paying taxes, carrying insurance for public safety, buying our own products, continuing our education...but do not qualify for state unemployment benefits so we must wait for May 11 to, hopefully, get assistance thru the federal CAREs program. We, too, have been shut down since 3/21. Have you seen the cashier at a grocery or 'essential' liquor stores who've worn the same gloves and paper mask their entire shift or the bank teller who is using hand sanitizer on their gloves after rubbing their face before handing out cash? These essential public service providers are NOT even remotely following standard precautions. STOP the hypocrisy (Ms Lightfoot) and work WITH us to implement a plan of how and when we can get back to work to ensure the safety of our salons, barber shops, clients, OUR communities and us! Why? Because we provide more than “just a haircut or nail service". I’d like to add that as an industry of beauty professionals (88k licensed in Illinois) we generate a lot of revenue for the state including the fees we pay for our BCENT licensing ($4.4m+ biennial) and WE CONTINUE to meet education requirements and comply with all sanitation and hygiene procedures and practices for PUBLIC SAFETY. We pay our taxes and we vote. We ARE essential to all of ILLINOIS.
The Daily Herald's Sunday editorial had much to commend it. However it did not reflect it's own motto which states in part "Fear God". There was no encouagement to rely on God, to seek his strength and wisdom. This is in contrast to past presidents who encouraged reliance on God in the midst of great challenges.
