I was born and raised in Chicago and once even had a Christian club with some of the Cobra Stones (the youth adjunct of the notorious Blackstone Rangers of that time). We had a wrestling mat and the boys did skits of how the police would stop and question them, etc., and then we had a bible lesson.
If Joe Biden made a deal with a foreign country to give his son $50,000 a month for 12 months and his son didn’t have to do any work for the money then that’s what I call crippling your own son.
As a resident of Kankakee, I'm concerned about the city’s finances largely because those finances are tied to my property taxes. Kankakee residents should take note of these latest headlines if they, like me, are tired of paying high property and sales taxes to the city.
Many voters rightly wonder if Joe Biden has the stamina for the campaign ahead. Let’s remember, he’ll have help. There are several younger, energetic women he is considering as his running mate. Susan Rice or Kamala Harris, if selected, would ease voter anxiety, and either could give Mike Pe…
I take the health of our community personally. As a health care administrator, I strive to be sure our staff is following current guidelines during COVID-19 to keep themselves, their families, and our fragile patients safe and healthy.
As a building and zoning director, every year I’m concerned to see Illinois communities devastated by severe weather and flooding. It destroys our homes, businesses, schools and hospitals. In fact, flooding is now the costliest and most frequent natural disaster we face.
Here's a thought. If all the protesters who seem to hate this country would stop listening to the politicians they support and TV News, and instead spend a day in church, and all the anti-protesters who seem to love this country would stop listening to the politicians they support and TV New…
Protecting and improving upon the Affordable Care Act is absolutely essential, now more than ever. Our current leaders have consistently tried to do away with medical coverage provided by the Affordable Care Act and exclude those with preexisting conditions from receiving necessary coverage.
A heartfelt thank you to Kankakee County Board Chairman Andy Wheeler and all the gracious sponsors who worked together to provide Kankakee area residents with the fireworks for the Fourth of July. The display was outstanding, and even the weather cooperated. Thank you for thinking of the are…
When our country was attacked at Pearl Harbor, this country united and defeated the enemy. Today within our country it is being attacked with much destruction to the basic fibers of this nation, such as great men who had the foresight to the future problems facing this country.
Thank you Judge Leshen and Dr. Copeland (Daily Journal, July 11) for making time to write such beautiful and well reasoned words. The Daily Journal is also to be commended for seeing their importance during these unprecedented times.
Growing up in Dolton back in the 1930's to the 1940's, me and some of my friends worked at the farms in South Holland, Illinois, and we picked a lot of tomatoes.
I don't agree with everything (Gov.) Pritzker has done. But when I drive around this area and see all the "Pritzker Sucks" signs, it makes me wonder what is happening to public discourse.
I want to thank Andy Wheeler, all the volunteers and especially all of the generous contributors who helped to put on the fireworks display for the people in Kankakee and the area this year.
Two speeches, one July 3 at Mount Rushmore and one from the White House south lawn July 4, sets the tone of the debate as to who is fit and should lead us as the next president of the United States.
Fourth of July fireworks are a long-standing tradition. Watching a professional display is the best way to keep loved ones safe, but some choose personal-use fireworks. The Illinois Insurance Association and its member companies urge residents to be aware of the risk, consider the consequenc…
During this time of year, you might look out your window to see bees and butterflies buzzing around nearby flowers, moving from one plant to the next, pollinating along the way. Many of the fruits and vegetables we enjoy in the summer are a result of the important work these insects do.
The past few days, Gov. J.B. Pritzker has been all over TV violating his own social distancing rules by marching shoulder to shoulder with protesters.
I have lived in Kankakee for 17 years and want to thank Public Works for their consistently outstanding work, helpfulness and genuine friendliness. I have had numerous instances when I needed something done, from tree pickup to gravel removal, and they always have done a great job.
Ninety-five percent of all scientists agree: Climate change is real and caused by us. A 2014 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found that carbon dioxide levels are the highest in recorded history, at 413 parts per million (ppm). We can measure the levels of the past 800…
I just turned 88 years young April 28. I want to thank so many people for their love and caring. Numerous cards and phone calls with so many wonderful expressions of loving.
