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?
Save the date!! Prospect Moose at 601 N. Main St., in Mt. Prospect—Fall Craft Fair!! 10-4pm. Come and stop by for all day lunch and baked goods too! Baked donations welcome, free admission. 🍁🎪
Kudos to the Daily Herald for recent changes making it easier and quicker for subscribers to login to the e-edition.
What do you all think of the extreme amount of contenders in the Democrat primary? I think it is insane and does nothing to promote a healthy election against the republicans (Trump.)
It’s tomorrow!! Prospect Moose at 601 N. Main St., in Mt. Prospect—Spring Craft Fair!! 10-4pm. Come and stop by!!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Local DeMolay Chapter to celebrate Organization's Centennial. DeMolay International, a youth centric program for young men ages 12-20, has begun its centennial year serving youth around the world. Founded in March of 1919, DeMolay was formed in Kansas City Missouri as a program for a fatherless young man and his friends. In May of 1948,the program found its way to the Lake County area as Lakes Chapter of DeMolay, meeting first at the Masonic Hall in downtown Libertyville and then later in Waukegan where it was active until 2010. Several years later the Chapter was resurrected in Lake Villa with the sponsorship of the Millburn Masonic lodge. Today, DeMolay is present on 5 Continents and more than 25 countries. Membership in DeMolay is a global brotherhood of tens of thousands of young men with a common goal to make themselves, their family and their community stronger. DeMolay Alumni include Walt Disney, actors John Wayne and Buddy Ebsen as well as many other leaders in entertainment, politics and media. The DeMolay program educates young men on the skills necessary to run their own organization through athletic, social and education programs. Lakes Chapter members participate in various activities, including sports, leadership training, social outings and service themed community engagement. Regional leadership camps provide opportunities for members to develop life and leadership skills. The Chapter Members also have a voice as delegates to the annual Illinois DeMolay convention held in July. At this convention the members elect their peers as the state leadership of the organization while participating in sporting and other fun competitions. Currently, Lakes Chapter meets at 6:30 p.m. on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month at the Masonic Lodge in Millburn (Lake Villa).
