There are those among us who, most unfortunately, think of the COVID-19 pandemic in political terms rather than in scientific and medical concepts. This type of grossly erroneous thinking is based on either abominable, willful ignorance or is the product of a pitifully weak mind that is easi…
I would like to suggest that Bradley, Bourbonnais and Kankakee use part of the federal COVID-19 funds to place enclosed shelters at the many bus stops located around our area. Most stops do not provide any seating or shelter from inclement weather.
The Bradley-Bourbonnais Magnificent Mile. These two communities should be very proud of the truly great job that CSL Behring has done in the beautification of their property. There is nothing shabby or second rate in the wonderful picket iron fence that surrounds their property, the same goe…
Record flooding, historic droughts, Lake Michigan’s disappearing shoreline. These are the increasingly visible effects of the climate crisis that threaten to further disrupt our economy and our daily lives, while disproportionately impacting underserved and marginalized populations in long-n…
As I read the Gary W. Moore column in the (Kankakee) Daily Journal on July 1, I felt an immense admiration for his calm fortitude as he faces death.
As Mike Ditka might say, “In life and football there are Tom Bradys and, Choose one: Mike Tomczaks, Rex Grossmans, Kyle Ortons, Jay Cutlers and Mitch Trubiskys."

In 1993 a bipartisan coalition overwhelmingly passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) through Congress. But a subsequent Supreme Court case partially overturned the RFRA law. In 1999 a similar coalition crafted a curative that would reinstate the RFRA’s approach at the state level.
The seeds of fascism do not grow the same in every field, but when they do, we like to think we can recognize them. The Hitlers, Francos and Mussolinis of the world. What many people fail to recognize is the adaptability of fascism in different environments.
Mario Sebastiani was an ideal man to work for and to work alongside. He put great stock in the values of loyalty and hard work. Those were important values in his life.
