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

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

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

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

Letter: Thank you for 31 wonderful years

It is with a heavy heart that I write the following words: Dr. Robert Hansen DDS passed away earlier this month, following an 18-month battle with cancer. I had the honor of serving as his Office Manager for the past 31 years, and I can tell you from firsthand experience that he was a wonderful… Keep Reading

Letter: Let’s get the facts straight

I am writing about the disconnection from the Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District to the Fox River Fire/Rescue Protection District. Having served 35 years on the Elburn Fire Department—the last 11 as fire chief—I believe you should vote “no” if you live in the affected area. Elburn has no debt, has been in service… Keep Reading

Letter: Stay committed to Elburn Fire District

I have lived in the Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District for more than 77 years. I have grown to know the members of our Fire District staff and their families. The department has visited our schools, marched in parades and come to our neighborhood parties. But most of all, when any of us have… Keep Reading

Letter: Previous letter renders several opinions without facts

I read again with interest the letter from Tim Lyons published in the Elburn Herald on Oct. 9. This letter was from an individual identifying himself as a Batavia Fire Department Lieutenant. Lt. Lyons is also reportedly the brother-in-law of Elburn Fire Chief Kelly Callaghan. The letter contained several inaccurate statements and misinformation regarding Fox… Keep Reading

Letter: Dispensing with the myths

I was pleased to read the letter in the Oct. 16 Elburn Herald publication, written by Fire Chief Greg Benson of the Fox River and Countryside Fire/Rescue District regarding the district’s proposed takeover of a significant portion of the Elburn and Countryside Fire District’s service area. In his letter, Benson states, “…we would welcome the… Keep Reading

On Tuesday, Nov. 4, some of the voters in the Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection District will have the option to choose whether to disconnect from the Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection District and join Fox Fiver Fire and Countryside Fire Protection District, or stay with Elburn and Countryside Fire Protection District as their fire… Keep Reading

Letter: Getting the facts straight

I read with interest the letter from an area resident published in the Elburn Herald on Oct. 2, 2014. The letter contained several inaccurate statements and misinformation regarding Fox River & Countryside Fire/Rescue District. The intent of this response is to provide accurate information. Contrary to the letters’ assertion, the writer has never requested a… Keep Reading

Letter: Go away, Fox River & Countryside Fire District

As information continues to surface regarding the substandard emergency services provided by a privately-owned company who call themselves Fox River and Countryside Fire/Rescue, the impact of this politically initiated land-grab for-profit scheme has gone from concerning to terrifying for the effected residents. Fox River’s pathetic response times have led to needless loss of property and… Keep Reading

Letter: Say no to fire district territory takeover

Our neighbors—one a 22-year resident—will be voting against the proposed territory takeover by Fox River & Countryside Fire Protection District from the current Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District. Fox River & Countryside Trustee President Jim Gaffney stated in a Nov. 22, 2010, Daily Herald article that the Fire Protection District was “strapped for cash”… 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
