Letter: A look into video gaming machine numbers

It has been over two years since the first video gaming machines became operational in Illinois, and the results may be surprising. In the first 27 months of operations there were over 19,182 terminals that reported $972.5 million in net terminal collections. Of this total, approximately $243.1 million went to the state’s Capital Projects Fund… Keep Reading

Letter: Where’s the shovel love?

I am a student in seventh grade at Kaneland Harter Middle School, and I am very disappointed in the people living near my bus stop. Every weekday, I walk to the bus stop in the dark and the cold, and I have to stand in the street for up to 10 minutes while cars drive… Keep Reading

Letter: A letter from a concerned Kaneland parent

I am a concerned parent of the Kaneland School District. Our kids are about to be locked out of a groundbreaking educational endeavor forever because the School Board won’t act. The Dunham STEM School is a STEM school set up by the Illinois legislature, and only six districts in the entire state have been selected… Keep Reading

Letter: Election law prevails

For the past two years, I have been trying to make a difference in Kaneland School Board governance. I must admit this has been a learning experience and eye-opener for me.

Thinking of Bob

I wanted to take the time to write these sentiments and make them public. This past week, a dear friend and long-time colleague basically told us goodbye. As difficult as it was for me to hear, I know that it must have been tremendously difficult for him to say. We don’t always know what to… Keep Reading

Letter: A letter regarding Kaneland’s tax levy

I wrote my previous Letter to the Editor this time last month. As I was saying then, I continue to request Kaneland School Board and administration to join our other county and local taxation containment programs. It is a well-known fact that our local housing market and business environment is suffering from stagnant-to-declining growth. The… Keep Reading

Letter: Performing Arts Boosters give thanks

Often overshadowed by turkey, pumpkin pie and watching football, taking time to reflect on why we’re thankful is truly the meaning of Thanksgiving. The moment that Thanksgiving ends, the frenzy for holiday shopping begins and we forget why we are thankful. The Kaneland Performing Arts Boosters is thankful for the support and dedication of parent… Keep Reading

Letter: An invitation to the School Board

I am writing this as an invitation to the School Board to stop by and visit the Transportation building. This is a building that hasn’t changed since the 1960s. Currently, we have one bathroom with four stalls and one small sink, all for over 60 employees. Our seating area is roughly 300 square feet—about the… Keep Reading
