President Trump sent his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, to perform a “domestic political errand” in Ukraine, according to Dr. Fiona Hill, a former top Russia adviser to Trump. According to sworn testimony, during the impeachment hearings, by Hill and others, Giuliani was working to the excl…
Ms. Alelston-Shafer seemed so concerned for those who make minimum wage, but she offers no solutions.
Just a quick comment on the Ded. 12 “Lightfoot sets a new standard” editorial.
On Nov. 26, after doing some shopping, we stopped for lunch at the Steak & Shake on North Prospect Avenue in Champaign. We were finishing our meal when our waitress stopped by our booth to inform us that some girls from a nearby booth had paid for our meal. We turned to thank them, but t…
We already have a health and wellness center.
When meeting a Trump supporter, I much prefer the malignantly ignorant Fox-type like David Martin (12/04/19) to the smug dotard expressing views like Bob Townsend’s (11 / 26/19).
Syndicated columnist Kathleen Parker wrote recently that there was a silver lining to an otherwise-embarrassing chapter in our history, on the one hand referring to the bureaucrats who testified at the Schiff hearings, and on the other the tenor of President Trump’s and his administration’s …
As the world continues to come up with new technology and social media, I feel there is a need to be aware that cyberbullying is still a thing.
Upon reading Jim Dey’s Dec. 3 column entitled “Time’s not on the side of ERA,” I was once again disappointed in opinion regarding equal rights for women expressed by The News-Gazette.
I believe we need a mass impeachment of the U.S. House of Representatives and, if successful, follow with a general election to replace them. Politicians have become so full of self-interest that they can’t do this job. American citizens deserve more.
U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin recently presented a bill in Congress to allow Amtrak to sue railroads for lack of on-time performance of their passenger trains.
A Nov. 26 letter cites failed entrapment videos by the so-called Center for Medical Progress group of anti-abortion activists (not to be confused with a research program of the same name at the conservative Manhattan Institute for Policy Research) to perpetuate long-debunked myths about Plan…
Unbelievable. We now have an impeachment inquiry that, if you watched, must be followed through from the testimony of almost every witness. Those who didn’t agree there was an attempt to bribe a foreign government admitted if they knew what they know they would have certainly raised an alarm.
The C-U Mass Transit District placed a “Notice of Proposed Property Tax Increase” in the Nov. 29 News-Gazette. Accompanying this is a second notice, intended as an exculpatory explanation: the increase is motivated by “the possibility that hospital properties could be considered in the equal…
In this season of giving thanks to our Savior, I am most grateful for the defeat of the corrupt Hillary Clinton presidential bid of 2016 (aka: President Obama’s third term).
Those of us who have watched the Illini football program for 45-plus years could see this coming miles away! The university and state government mirror each other. Throwing good money after bad! Sick of it; stop it. Drop program; plant test plots.
In recent correspondence with constituents, U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis explained that he does not support the impeachment proceedings because they detract from addressing critical issues facing our nation.
On the morning of Aug. 15, my wife was walking our leashed chihuahua on the public sidewalk of the 600 block of West John Street in Champaign when a pit bull owned by a person living on the block ran up silently, off-leash and unaccompanied, behind our dog and viciously attacked it.
I got home from work and noticed when I looked at the Nov. 21 paper that on the front page, on the right hand side, is a picture of Ambassador Sondland with words “The answer is ‘yes.’ Ambassador to E.U. confirms Trump sought ‘quid pro quo’ with Ukraine.” Apparently not only is the newspaper…
After an Amtrak report highlighted that only 10 percent of northbound Illini/Saluki trains arrive in Chicago on time, Sen. Dick Durbin introduced a bill that would allow Amtrak to bring lawsuits against freight railroad companies that don’t give Amtrak trains the priority required by law.
Last June, U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis and other members of Congress from Illinois wrote a letter to President Trump asking him not to pardon Rod Blagojevich.
I’ve been watching the shifting defenses (excuses) by the GOP of President Trump for some time now. This includes Russia all the way to the Ukraine. As each excuse is debunked, the goalpost shifts.
