Pauline's Corner: State money needs to go to schools

Our governor has given us such great news. Illinois can’t pay its bills, but his people are getting their raises. Isn’t this wonderful?


They can’t pay bills, but they can build bike paths that stretch for miles. Yes, they may be needed, but if you can’t pay your bills, why use money you don’t have?

Have no fear, Herbie the Love Bug will ride again

To the editor:

Dear Rantoul,
Everyone loves a parade, and no one more than I. So I must apologize for my absence at this year’s Fourth of July Festivities.  
Due to circumstances beyond my control, my crew chief was out of commission, and my pit crew were left scrambling.


Pauline's Corner: Mrs. Poremba goes shopping

July 19 will be a day for memories.

The reunion is for former Vetter employees.

Time to help Binas. My husband and I are so sorry for Jim and Carla Bina, who lost their home to fire in Ludlow.

Expressions: Living small, but living large

By the time this article goes to print, my family will have successfully hosted yet another large party at our home in honor of our daughter’s graduation and several smaller summer get-togethers. In its 14 years of existence, our house has been the warm gathering place for friends and family.

Looking good, Rantoul

To the editor:

By ALEX ROSTOWSKY

America loves an underdog.


On the world’s stage, the United States is anything but. Regardless of the issues the nation may be facing today, we are often a dream destination and the envy of countries around the world.

Spending mucho moola to study train noise is a bad idea

To the editor:
I have lived in Rantoul ever since I returned from Korea in 1954. I worked on Chanute Air Force Base for 33 years; also operated a furniture business for many years.


A lot of things have happened since I have been here in the past 60 years, most of them being good.


Pauline's Corner: Check out the new restaurant in Potomac

Thursday was an amazing day. A friend of mine took me to Potomac, and we stopped and had lunch at Country Kitchen.


The people who run this establishment are really nice, and the food was great. I am looking forward to trying out their all-you-can-eat buffet Friday. I will let you all know how it was.
