Speak Out

Daily Southtown (Sunday) - - OPINION -

Gov.-elect J.B. Pritzker tapped a group to tackle the ed­u­ca­tion is­sue. State of­fi­cials es­ti­mate they need about $7 bil­lion more to fund kinder­garten through 12th grade. Un­less this group faces re­al­ity as to what re­ally is the prob­lem, we will keep go­ing down this road again and again. Why not ad­dress the ele­phant that has been fac­ing us for years? Why not have a plan to com­bine some school dis­tricts? This would au­to­mat­i­cally save us money. This­would be a bold move but money is es­sen­tial. By all means stop com­ing to us the tax­pay­ers.

I’m with first lady Me­la­nia Trump. I think the red Christ­mas trees in the White House look ab­so­lutely beau­ti­ful. It’s time for a change like every­body said so why not change the Christ­mas trees? Merry Christ­mas, ev­ery­one.

Daily Southtown colum­nists Donna Vick­roy and Ted Slowik are ex­cel­lent jour­nal­ists. I love to read what­ever they put in the news­pa­per.
