Dear Editor: I am with the McKinley Park Civic Association and we are interested in your articles on the BRT [Chicago Transit Authority Bus Rapid Transit proposed for Ashland Avenue] and are very much against it.
Dear Editor: With Chicago facing a financial crisis, Randolph/Fulton Market leaders want Mayor Emanuel to withdraw his Fulton Market Forced Landmarking plan. It is not supported by our community and would jeopardize almost $200 million in new economic development for Chicago not including new tax revenues, jobs, businesses and residential units.
In a recent Gazette NewsBrief article, “Dyett High to reconfigure, remain open,” dated Jan. 2, 2015, Alderman Will Burns’ description of his leadership with regards to Dyett High School is inaccurate.
Dear Editor: From Bunker Hill to Antietam, from Somme to the beaches of Normandy, from the jungles of Vietnam to the mountains of Afghanistan, brave Americans died to preserve our democracy.
Dear Editor: American Lung Association and American Thoracic Society members and volunteers understand the impact of polluted air. We know that, as a nation, we have to do more to protect the ability of people to breathe, and that requires us to reduce carbon pollution from power plants.
Dear Editor: Black youth across this country are faced with a serious challenge. Violent crimes among Black youth (ages 17-29) in urban areas have been on the rise, and no one seems to have any real solutions on what to do about it.
Dear Editor: The misinformation about BRT [Bus Rapid Transit] spread by your most recent wish list article [Dec. 6 Gazette] was disappointing.
Dear Editor: I am writing this letter in hope of righting a wrong. I’m trying to get as many people as possible to contact the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame to bring to light what I consider a gross injustice.
Dear Editor: Mayor Emanuel does not have a budget crisis in the Chicago Public Schools — he has a priority crisis. Chicago’s public school students deserve a world-class education regardless of their ZIP code. Following the closure of nearly 50 schools last spring, the remaining neighborhood schools all over our city now see deep cuts to their budgets.
