My husband and I left Illinois years ago for the peace and quiet of Northwest Indiana. We are now rethinking that.
Lake County has become Cook County. The new tax (1.5 percent) begins Oct. 1, which will bring an influx of money to the county, but it's evidently not enough, from what I have been reading in The Times.

The council wants to give raises and bonuses and start a pension fund. Then they are talking about borrowing from the existing fund because they need more money. Give me a break.
Lake County, start living within your budget. Cut your budgets like all regular people have to do.
I plan to find out which of you are elected and which ones are appointed, and I will remember all of you come election time.
Our newly appointed E911 director is already getting too much. His request for an assistant is ridiculous.
