Noted and passed - Dec. 8, 2014

• We note Elgin Mayor Brad Hanley's decision not to run for reelection in February.

In his four years as mayor, Hanley has performed a tremendous job, leading the way on a variety of issues -- most importantly, keeping Spears Creek free of additional pollutants ...

Rich: The joy of pinto beans and cornbread

One afternoon, I had a hankering, a primal-like craving, for a supper of pinto beans and cornbread with a tall glass of cold, rich buttermilk thrown in for good measure and extra filling.

Morgan: I’m thankful for…..

Editorial: Spending run amok

Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma has long waged a campaign against the excessive government spending that has become the rule rather than the exception in Washington. For several years, he has published his "wastebook," which details some of the most egregious money-wasting projects of the federal government.

Here, according to one national media outlet, are some of the most glaring examples of how Uncle Sam can throw your money away.
