I wholeheartedly support Don Harmon for state senator from the 39th District in the March 18 Democratic Primary. The 39th includes Oak Park north of Jackson Boulevard all the way to North Avenue as well as parts of Chicago and a northwest slice of DuPage County.
We, the undersigned, strongly urge our fellow Oak Parkers to vote for Senator Don Harmon in the March 18 Democratic primary for state senate in the 39th Legislative District. Don represents us with intelligence, integrity and a deep, heartfelt passion for public service.
I request that Democrats who vote in Cook County's First District vote for Blake Sercye. The case is simple. He's bright, makes things happen and has practical ideas about using Cook County government as a tool for making citizens' lives better.
I never thought a simple letter to my son's school would make me feel like Don Quixote lunging at windmills. My fourth-grader asked if he could read a book with me so he can improve at writing "summaries" in class.
Oak Park's housing discrimination was discussed a great deal by the village boards during 2003-2007, and the Community Relations Commission prior to that. Questioning of the Housing Center and other institutions was heresy.
Congratulations to the Oak Park and River Forest High School Wrestling Team. Coach Powell, his very able coaching staff, and all the wrestling team members should feel proud of their recent state championship victory.
After I saw 12 Years A Slave, the Academy Award winner for Best Picture, I wrote a column on Nov. 12, titled, "White Americans need an education in slavery." To my surprise, the column elicited far more comments from readers than any column I have ever written.
