Reader doesn’t want pot businesses in Oxford

Now that recreational marijuana is legal, small communities, like Oxford, are in the position of determining the impact on the area. There are uses for marijuana in medicine and it has benefited many, but recreational use is different. Adding a storefront dispensary to Washington Street, downtown area, would pose significant problems and require resources that […]

Scout concerned about poor condition of roads

I am working on the communication merit badge for Boy Scouts, and one of the requirements is to express an opinion to a local newspaper. I have concerns about the conditions of the local roads. It appears that the roads are just being patched instead of being repaved. It seems that this just results in […]

Drop a line to former elementary teacher

Have you ever had a teacher that made a difference in your life? I have. She kept me after school because she knew no one was home except for my elderly, crippled grandfather. So, she made up little chores and taught me songs. I would have loved to know what happened to her because I […]

To the editor: Vote for Denninger

I have never considered myself to be a “political person”. While I vote in all elections, because I truly believe that every vote counts, I have never aligned myself with any one political party or candidate. I considered myself to be an informed independent, who voted for a person, not a party. However, when my […]

Water rates up in Lake Villa

My “fixed income” daughter’s water rate has doubled in less than a year ($60 to $120) and now, she has a meter, but still pays through the park (Lake Villa Manufactured Home Community)?
