There is no question that the health of humanity is inextricably tied to the health of nature.
Deer-vehicle crashes happen more frequently this time of year. The Illinois Insurance Association and its member companies encourage motorists to be alert, focused and ready to react to deer on roadways in the coming weeks.
Sometimes doctors have to deliver bad news to their patients. Unfortunately, because of COVID-19, the physicians of Illinois implore you to reconsider your holiday plans this year.
My parents gave it to me straight. I needed another year in the 5th grade. Technically, my grades, thanks to something called “social promotion” would have allowed to me squeak into 6th grade, but it wouldn’t be pretty. I needed another year to mature.
Every day we wake up free is a good day. We have all lived a lifetime of good days and we owe that to our veterans and to those who are currently serving.
Contrary to what the roosters in the political offices say, it will not be them that save us. They are good at crowing that "we're trying to get this done," but it's the president or the Democrats or the Republicans, whoever, etc.
As we approach the holiday season and continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering some friendly reminders about health and wellness:
I am supporting Scott Bennett in the upcoming election because he has made it a priority to increase funding for schools throughout the 52nd District.
In the Nov. 3 election, Illinois voters have a critical decision to make at the top of the ballot — whether to approve a question on a proposed amendment to the state constitution replacing Illinois’ current flat income tax rate with a graduated tax structure that the federal government and most states already have.
October is National Substance Abuse Prevention Month. By communicating with kids about how cannabis affects the developing brain, parents and educators can help keep kids substance-free.
The country is currently experiencing a health care crisis in proportions that it has not felt since the 1918 flu. The crisis is especially dangerous for elderly people living in group care.
My name is Michael Cox. I am a retired Danville police officer. I worked for the Danville Police Department for 30 years. I would like to recommend Sandra Lawlyes for the position of Vermilion County State's Attorney.
Oct. 5-9 is Pediatric Nurses Week. Within the stuttering community, parents’ fear that a child is beginning to stutter is well known — and very real.
I am a retired federal employee, and I am writing to raise awareness of the over 2.5 million retirees like me who have their Social Security benefits significantly reduced each month by the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and the Government Pension Offset (GPO).
If you want to live in a kinder, greener, healthier world without factory farms, slaughterhouses, wet markets, and pandemics, then go vegan in honor of World Animal Day, Oct. 4. Many zoonotic, or animal-borne, diseases, including COVID-19, bird flu, and swine flu, exist largely because anima…
On the ballot this fall you will be asked whether you support changing Illinois’ income tax structure. Vote NO on this question. The amendment would end the State’s flat rate income tax, but it will not solve our state’s fiscal problems.
I am a retired federal employee writing to raise public awareness about the Fair COLA for Seniors Act, H.R. 1553, which would provide more accurate annual cost-of-living-adjustments (COLAs) for Social Security beneficiaries, federal annuitants and veterans.
National Suicide Prevention Awareness Week is Sept. 7‐13. There is an average of 123 suicides each day in this country. Suicide is the 11th leading cause of death in the U.S. and the third leading cause of death among 15 to 24‐year‐olds.
Over 45 years ago young people were being forced into battle against what the government deemed a national threat. They were being told it was their patriotic duty to stop an enemy before it spread over here.
Our current racial tension reminds me of a man standing on the ledge of a tall bridge contemplating a fateful jump into the river below when a passerby runs up to stop him. “Wait!” shouts the passerby, “Don’t jump. Let’s talk.”
I found Wednesday’s Facebook post of white police officers passing out popsicles to Black children in the Community Housing Unit to be irresponsible, and counterintuitive to the newspaper’s role in the community.
We want to express our chagrin that Danville is apparently willing to throw away the legacy of one of Danville’s larger pioneer families because of misplaced apprehensions about their Lynch family name.
