Editorial: Don’t ask us about our bracket

“How’s your bracket?” It’s a question that serves as a popular conversation starter this time of year, for both sports nuts and the casual observer.

My wife Sarah and I came home Friday night after stopping for dinner at the Sugar Grove American Legion Fish Fry, and read the Elburn Herald, as we do every week.

Letter: You get what you pay for

Asking voters to approve any increase in funds to any community asset is a challenge, particularly in these times. However, near-term shortsightedness can result in great long-term damage that ultimately costs each taxpayer much more. The people of Sugar Grove voted to build a new library building but have consistently failed to vote the funds… Keep Reading
