Editorial: 'At least we have a budget' is small consolation for Illinois

Today's Daily Herald editorial. What should lawmakers have done differently from the budget they passed?

Editorial: Those who ignore distancing put everyone else at risk

Today's Daily Herald editorial. How strict do you believe authorities should be toward people who ignore social distancing practices?

Editorial: Can we trust a 'Fair Tax' if there are no Fair Maps?

In a second editorial Sunday on the Fair Maps Amendment, the Daily Herald editorial board asks how supporters of a change to our tax system can expect us to trust them with our taxes if they refuse to change an election system that discourages our trust.

This Daily Herald editorial says that legislative leaders who can't be trusted to let voters speak on an issue they favor, Fair Maps, will have a hard time persuading them to back one they're uncertain about, a graduated state income tax.

If the legislature doesn't act by May 3, it will be 10 years before Illinois has another chance to curtail the power of ...
03/30/2020
Editorial: We have 5 weeks to end gerrymandering here

If the legislature doesn't act by May 3, it will be 10 years before Illinois has another chance to curtail the power of incumbents to protect themselves from a challenge. Do you know where your legislator stands on Fair Maps? Sunday's Page 1 Daily Herald editorial acknowledged the complications posed by the national health crisis, but insisted lawmakers must find a way to act to fix our broken political system.

In Illinois, we have legislative and congressional district maps that are drawn by politicians. And we hate to say it, they're not drawn to further democracy. They're not drawn so you decide who your representatives are. They're drawn so the political parties do. May 3 is the magic deadline for both...

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.

I’m a high school civics teacher and a local (active) resident, and your “The Election Symbiosis” opinion today was spot on!!! Keep up the great and so important work of local journalism!
I keep hearing the Democrats lambasting the President, "No one is above the law". Then why do they want to allow Illegals into our country? Isn't that making illegals "above the law"?
For those of us who record Jeopardy because we are working during the day, your email headline was not a welcome spoiler. James had a big lead but his closest competitor beat him last time so there was still a chance, albeit a small one, that she could win.
Still wondering why the white couple weren't asked if they would like to change their seats at the Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant.
The Herald is my paper! I have been a subscriber for over 40 years!!
Your newspaper covers many topics throughout our suburbs but never addresses the continuing rising cost of subscription service. Last Fall increase was 23.9%. Just received bill for September - increased from $78 to $100 or another 28%. I cannot absorb this increase on a fixed income. Why no discussion in the newspaper?
