Editorial: Let’s get ready to Jinglepalooza

Those in attendance last Saturday for the Elburn Christmas Stroll might have noticed that the Elburn and Countryside Community Center was absent from this year’s downtown event. Fans of the Community Center’s Stroll activities in year’s past can breathe a sigh of relief, however, as the center will host its inaugural Jinglepalooza event on Friday,… Keep Reading

Editorial: From the classroom to the newsroom

by Madeline Mohatt and Shannon Gilkey Kaneland Krier staff As staff members of the Kaneland Krier, the chance to spend a day shadowing the staff of the Elburn Herald was a great way to expand our knowledge as student journalists. On Nov. 11, we took over the Elburn Herald newsroom. In the midst of invasion,… Keep Reading

Editorial: Helping one of our own during a time of need

Like many of you, we received news late last week that Kaneville Village President Pat Hill is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer. This week, Elburn Herald reporter Susan O’Neill spoke with the Kaneville community to get a better sense of the next steps in Hill’s fight against her cancer. Meanwhile, the next step on… Keep Reading

Editorial: Oh, look: some good news

We’d like to take a moment and step away from the ongoing story involving the Nov. 4 Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection District disconnection referendum to focus, albeit briefly, on some local news. Elburn recently saw the addition of not just one, but two coffee shops. The first coffee shop, The Corner Grind, held its… Keep Reading

Editorial: Have your say on Nov. 4

As you likely know, our Letter to the Editor section this month has served primarily as an outlet for local residents to weigh in on a fire district disconnection referendum that will appear on the Nov. 4 General Election ballot. On that day, voters in the northeast section of the Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection… Keep Reading

Editorial: Celebrate with some Class in a Glass

Declining temperatures notwithstanding, October is typically an excellent month for local weekend activities and fundraisers. So if you’re looking for something fun to do on Saturday, Oct. 11, consider “classing” things up with a trip to the inaugural Class in a Glass wine-tasting event from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Elburn and Countryside Community… Keep Reading

Celebrate the second annual Kindness in Kaneland Week

Last fall, we helped announce the creation of Kindness in Kaneland Week—seven days of programs and celebration meant to promote friendship, respect, happiness and, most important, anti-bullying, in the Kaneland community. The collaboration between organizers and the Kaneland School District was unquestionably a success, as it helped put forth a message that went above and… Keep Reading

Editorial: Get an early jump on the holiday spirit

The month of October is hardly an appropriate time to discuss anything related to Christmas (are you listening, Wal-Mart?). Nevertheless, we want to mention that a fundraiser for Sugar Grove’s Holiday in the Grove 2014 will take place later today. The pork chop/chicken dinner, catered by 5-B’s, is available from 4 to 7:30 p.m. in… Keep Reading

Editorial: Reflecting on the events of Sept. 11, 2001

It’s hard to believe that today marks the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, and United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in Stoneycreek Township, Penn. And while some historic events can lose a little bit of their cultural… Keep Reading

Editorial: Enough is enough

We were as surprised as anyone last week upon receiving word that Kaneland interim superintendent Dr. Ken Sorrick had resigned from his position just one day after the School Board voted to hire him. We were also confused by the resignation, as Sorrick’s statements during the meeting suggested that he was eager to go to… Keep Reading

Editorial: A big thank you to the community

Photo: Mike Schramer tried something new with his Bobcat this year. He helped build berms around each court to contain the water that Chief Kelly Callaghan (below, right) provided. Without the continued support of the community and these volunteers, programs and events like the mud volleyball tournament wouldn’t be possible. We thank them for all… Keep Reading

Reaffirming our objectivity

We’ve recently fielded some public comments regarding our stance (and perspective) on the situation involving the Kaneland School District and Superintendent Jeff Schuler, who will become the superintendent of schools in the Wheaton-Warrenville School District on Sept. 2. Therefore, we’d like to use this space to explain our philosophy when it comes to reporting on… Keep Reading

Editorial: Witnessing the power of the Healing Field

Two weeks ago we used editorial space to provide further information to our readers regarding the Healing Field ceremony and display near Kaneland High School, scheduled to take place Memorial Day Weekend. Well, if you happened to drive past KHS any time between Friday and Monday, you certainly noticed the sprawling display of American flags,… Keep Reading
