Letter: Further outrage regarding Jordan dismissal

I feel I must add my voice to the growing crowd of unhappy local customers outraged over Old Second Bank’s poor decision to terminate longtime local branch manager Margie Jordan. Me thinks maybe there’s more to this than meets the eye, what with the laughably improbable benchmark of signing up 20 new accounts per month… Keep Reading

Letter: In defense of first responders

Forty-six years ago I returned to Illinois from my active duty service, which included Vietnam, only to be met by jeers and accusations such as “baby killer” when I wore my uniform. Today, some American citizens are treating our police force even worse, and we should all find that intolerable. Our police, and I would… Keep Reading

Editorial: Remembering Bob

We were saddened to learn of Sugar Grove village trustee Bob Bohler’s passing on Sunday morning. Bohler, 64, brought a lifetime of hard work, respect and dignity to the village—as a resident, community and public servant—and there is no doubt that Sugar Grove is a better place because of him. Elected to the Village Board… Keep Reading

Letter: Frustration with Jordan’s dismissal

I am writing this letter to express my frustration with Old Second Bank (O2). Recently Margie Jordan, the branch manager at Kaneville O2, was terminated after 22 years of service. The reason she was given was “non-performance.” This was the result of her not meeting the required quota of 20 new accounts per month. The… Keep Reading

Letter: Lessons from Lincoln

This past week, the House of Representatives commemorated the 150th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s death. References were made to the hundreds of books that have been written about this man and the lessons we can learn from his life. One lesson that is particularly important for our society and especially Illinois today comes from… Keep Reading
