In the best of times, one in four diabetics ration their insulin. Many are forced to pay full list-price for their insulin ($300 per vial, about three vials per month) -- paying more to stay alive than they pay for rent. Because of insulin rationing, many people have died, and many more live…

I attend St. George Parish in Bourbonnais. May is the month of the Blessed Virgin Mary and on Wednesday evenings the parishioners gather in the parking lot of the church to say the Rosary. I couldn’t help but feel sad we have to gather together in prayer isolated in our cars. At least in Ame…

I was wondering if the governor has the power to call the assembly to Springfield, why has he not done it? If Walmart, Menards, and Target can open safely, why can’t our legislators come together? Where are the checks and balances of our government? This whole virus thing just doesn’t add up…

The human race was working tirelessly to perfect self-driving cars, explore space tourism, develop gene therapy to reverse aging, reach beyond the boundaries to make what we once thought was impossible a very real possibility. Humans were delving into the depths of our wildest imagination to…

Wow! The ignorance of the Illinois state leadership is astounding. Those people and those surrounding them haven’t a clue. The continuing of our state shut down is not only stupid, it is ridiculous. They shut down the schools when 95 percent of the young people are asympomatic or have mild s…

Earth Day has come and gone with another tree planted on the White House lawn. Symbolic ceremonies are sometimes empty, but no ritual could be so hollow as this particular one by this particular president. Earth would be better served if President Donald Trump chopped down all the trees on t…

This is in my memory the first time Gov. JB Pritzker at his daily briefing (April 27) actually discussed rural Illinois counties. But he did so to defend his "one-size-fits-all" policy. However, he did not mention that the two counties that had as high per-capital death and case rates are Ja…

Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, April 19-25, has been canceled due to COVID-19. There is no time to honor the unseen professions in the basement laboratory. Laboratorians are an invaluable part of the health care team, with approximately 70 percent of physician diagnosis and treatment…

Your April 13 article (editorial) regarding forming a coronavirus museum is splendid in keeping history alive but it also says that the destruction that occurred in New Orleans was the result of a natural disaster. Whereas the hurricane (Katrina) was natural, the destruction was the result o…

These past weeks have proved to be extremely burdensome on most of us. There has been so little to smile about, especially since the holiday of Easter is upon us, until suddenly “a single rose” appeared among these thorns of gloom and doom.

He can do no wrong. Suck up to dictators, treacherously ask for help from foreigners in an election, defy the Congress when subpoenaed. Yes and he probably could shoot someone in the streets of Manhattan and get away with it. The apologists for Trump would probably come up with some excuse f…

The petty partisan criticisms of the Trump Administration by political leaders who only seem interested in stoking anxiety and exacerbating division among the American people is disturbing. Gov. J.B. Pritzker has made a name for himself as one of the nation’s chief nitpickers.

I live around the corner from the Strasma Forest Park Preserve on Duane Boulevard, and take daily walks with my dog, Bella. We usually also go down to Beckman Park and the boat landing area. It is discouraging to see the litter, and there are all types thrown out, bags of fast food leftovers…
