Performing Arts Boosters give thanks

by Denise Blaszynski President, Kaneland Performing Arts Boosters 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… Keep Reading

Stepping into the light of Sugar Grove

by Shannon Halikias, Sugar Grove Public Library director Stepping into a new library directorship means entering a rapid learning process. A new director has to acclimate to a new community and its history, learn a unique collection, and sometimes tackle substantial administrative or financial issues. Usually this process includes meeting multiple pressing deadlines, and a… 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

Letter: A response to a previous letter

Mr. Jerry Elliott often writes inflammatory Letter to the Editor submissions to share his concerns about the management of Kaneland CUSD 302, but he regularly includes erroneous information. This is unfortunate because it can mislead district stakeholders, suggesting reckless mismanagement of funds. Nothing is further from the truth. This letter is in response to Mr.… Keep Reading

Letter: Fox River’s math just doesn’t add up

Because of the Nov. 4 referendum, the recently formed Fox River & Countryside Fire/Rescue District has been spending a lot of time defending their Fire District in the press. In one of their letters, they stated that “change tends to bring out strong emotion.” They are correct—change can be quite emotional, especially when that change… Keep Reading

Letter: In response to a previous letter

I have made numerous attempts to contact Ms. Denise Klock in regard to her allegations of response times leading to “needless property loss and death.” Due diligence to substantiate her claims have included attempts to contact her by phone, email and certified mail. Certified mail receipt indicates she picked up the letter on Oct. 22.… Keep Reading

Letter: A puzzle that matters

The fire disconnection referendum on the Nov 4 ballot poses a bit of a puzzle, i.e. a “financial aptitude test,” if you will. The issue presents an optical illusion where a proposed change may look smaller or better than it actually is. On the one hand, people of the Elburn area have folks from outside… Keep Reading

Letter: The facts are simple

I have been listening to people talk and reading articles about Fox River & Countryside Fire/Rescue District, and decided to do some research. Personal feelings aside, it’s time to look at the facts. The city of St. Charles was the agency originally responsible for providing coverage for the areas that now belong to Fox River.… Keep Reading

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

Letter: Simply the facts

Chief Kelly Callaghan of the Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District (ECFPD) recently submitted an article entitled “Vote No to the ‘Hostile Takeover.’” The so-called “hostile takeover” is actually a reference to the resident-initiated petition to disconnect that will be decided by voters on Nov. 4. That petition seeks to disconnect territory from the Elburn… Keep Reading
