A note regarding opinions pertaining to upcoming park district referendum

Wednesday, Oct. 26, is the final Rantoul Press edition in which statements may be made in opinion articles that require a response regarding issues and candidates in Nov. 8 election. Most likely drawing the greatest local attention is the question of whether the Rantoul Park District should be dissolved.

Guest commentary: Every citizen owns a piece of Brookhill Golf Course

By Richard Jean

For Rantoul Press

Jack Anderson and the self-named “Friends of Rantoul Parks” (FRP) have gone too far. It is one thing to use half-truths and scare tactics to try and push their agenda. But now they have stooped to a new low and leveled a personal attack on a private citizen, Terry Workman.

Letters to the Editor: Oct. 11

There’s better use of golf course land

To the editor:

I’ve been a resident and property owner in Rantoul for many years. Real estate taxes are very high in this community and in this county.

Reeder: Some call it courage; I call it character

Editor’s note: In 2013, Scott Reeder lost his mother to breast cancer. He wrote this column for the first Breast Cancer Awareness Month following her death. He asked that this updated piece run to honor her and inform readers on what they can do.

My mother’s breathing was ragged.

I held her left hand with each labored gasp.

Poremba: Pray for hurricane victims

Let’s take the time to pray for all the people who are suffering due to Hurricane Matthew. It really is hard to wonder why this is going on.

The storms are getting worse, and so many people and their children injured or killed.

Letter to the Editor: Park District battle

To the editor:

You, the voters, are being misled.

Letter: Vote no on Nov. 8 park district dissolution question

To the editor:

You, the voters, are being misled.

If you vote yes on the Rantoul Park District referendum in November, it will cause a loss of $213,000 assessed tax revenue and $35,0000 state property tax revenue for the village of Rantoul. This equals $248,000.

The village cannot recover the state property tax revenue of $35,000.
