Speak Out

Daily Southtown (Sunday) - - OPINION -

It’s about time. Fi­nally gym classes

have­moved into the 20th cen­tury. They’re us­ing spin bikes and other new tech­nol­ogy. We are be­hind coun­tries like Switzer­land when it comes to fit­ness. They have stand­ing desks for chil­dren so they can be­come more fit. We don’t need to take away re­sources from­schools. We need to in­vest in our schools and use money for more ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy.

I can’t be­lieve the dis­gust­ing and dis­grace­ful

com­ments from all can­di­dates run­ning for all the of­fices in the state of Illi­nois. None of these can­di­dates re­spect their op­po­nents or their op­po­nents’ fam­i­lies. It’s a shame that these can­di­dates have sunk to such depths of dis­re­spect­ful­ness.

Joe, Al­sip

We are still hav­ing ma­jor prob­lems with vot­ing.

Sev­eral states are try­ing to dis­en­fran­chise vot­ing by pass­ing laws that are geared at a cer­tain group of peo­ple. What can be done? Com­ply with what­ever they ask for. If you come pre­pared then there is noway they can stop you. If so, take names, badges or what­ever and re­port the in­ci­dent. Do not get dis­cour­aged be­cause then they win.
