Letter: Crisis pregnancy centers mislead about health care capabilities

I take issue with the article in the Homewood-Flossmoor Chronicle titled,  “Pregnancy care center opens in Flossmoor to provide pro-life options” specifically because AID for Women has a reputation of shaming women and telling them inaccurate information about their care. 

Racist incident provides teachable moment

Dear Tom Houlihan,
I just reread your editorial “Viewpoint” in the May 1 issue of the HF Chronicle and was struck by the box reading HATE HAS NO HOME HERE. 

That conviction was not shared by the boys who posted pictures of themselves in blackface on a recent Saturday night. If it wasn’t hate, then ignorance/lack of empathy/cruelty. 

St. Baldrick's event provides opportunity to focus on beauty inside

Editor's note: Joy Bunville submitted the following letter after participating in a St. Baldrick event at Park Junior High School on Saturday, April 21. The event was a fundraiser for the St. Baldrick's Foundation, which raises money to fight childhood cancers. Participants shave their heads to show solidarity with young cancer patients, who often lose their hair during treatment.

Mayor Paul Braun addressed the Flossmoor Hills/Highlands Civic Association

Flossmoor Mayor Paul Braun attended the Feb. 20 meeting of the Flossmoor Hills/Highlands Civil Association to inform the neighbors about the sales tax referendum on the March 20 ballot.

If approved, the tax would add 1 percent to the sale of all goods except groceries for home consumption and prescriptions and non-prescription medicine. Mayor

These are a few words I think best describe Homewood.

My family has lived in Flossmoor for almost 50 years. My husband grew up in Homewood. We moved back to Flossmoor from Chicago almost 10 years ago. 
 

Letter: Justice remains elusive for Emmett Till

Editor,

I appreciate the articles written in the June 1 (H-F Chronicle) issue, “Family helps bring stories to life at national museum” by Jade Greear, and “Black man’s history being included in American story” by Paul Thornton.
 
The article written by Paul Thornton is one expressing the importance of black history and also to inform the public and those who are not familiar with the Emmett Till story. 
 

Election worker appreciates mayor's thoughtfulness

It's a welcome sight for election judges to see Mayor (Richard) Hofeld arrive at the polls every Election Day. This presidential  election on Nov. 8 was no exception. 

Of course, we're always glad to see our friendly mayor.  But he gives us reason for more. Mayor Hofeld always personally greets each precinct table of election judges, and gifts them with a full package of delicious cookies from Panera's restaurant at Cherry Creek in Homewood.
