To the Editor: It's a sacred day to all war veterans and none need to be reminded of the reason that Memorial Day must be commemorated. But what about the general public, and more importantly, future generations?
To the Editor: Many issues concerning seniors have been debated in Springfield during the recent legislative session. It is important that our older citizens are aware of what is going on in the Illinois Capitol, and that their voices are heard when these initiatives are being considered.
To the Editor: Illinois job creators are speaking with one voice: Adverse consequences from hiking Illinois' minimum wage will far outweigh the alleged benefits that some are trying to accomplish in Springfield.
To the Editor: May is National Military Appreciation Month and I would like to take the time to bring attention to the individuals and families in our communities that give so much to protect our freedoms right here at home.
To the Editor: Do you remember how vulnerable we felt hearing about the murder of 26 children and teachers at Sandy Hook? The Elmhurst Police Department immediately dispatched armed officers to our schools to calm parents' safety concerns for their children. Later that night, President Obama denounced the tide of escalating violence and challenged us to take action when he said, "If there is even one thing that we can do to prevent any of these events, we have a deep obligation, all of us, to try."
To the Editor: National Nurses Week, May 6 to 12, is celebrated annually, giving us an opportunity to recognize nurses and nurse educators who have touched our lives and inspired us in pursuing such an honorable profession.

To the Editor: During the summer of 2012, I started traveling to a place in Bartlett three to four times a week. The drive from Elk Grove Village is not very long but, there is an issue I would like to address.
To the Editor: Go Red for Women is the American Heart Association's national campaign to increase awareness of heart disease — the leading cause of death for women — and to inspire women to take charge of their heart health. Heart disease is the cause of one in three deaths each year, but it can be prevented.
To the Editor: It baffles me as to why the stoic old lame duck Congress would even consider involving themselves with a Saturday mail delivery issue. Having Saturday delivery is a waste of time and resources.
To the Editor: Over the past six months, many Lombard residents have expressed to me their hopes for our village, and these hopes are the basis of my goal to keep Lombard first.
To the Editor: My husband and I — then longtime residents of Elmhurst — frequented a family restaurant located at York and Butterfield roads called Mr. G's for many years. We always enjoyed their home-cooked meals, homemade desserts and friendly atmosphere. Usually the owner, Steve, greets you with some silly joke to lighten your mood.
To the Editor: It was recently reported that a proposal for a city ordinance restricting or limiting the mayor, who also serves as the liquor commissioner for the City of Elmhurst, from receiving campaign contributions from liquor license holders and applicants was being referred to committee.
