Letter to the Editor
At a time when Illinois lawmakers should be supporting healthcare heroes who are working tirelessly during the COVID-19 pandemic, we instead receive unwelcome new legislation that will drive up the costs of practicing medicine in Illinois and send more physicians packing to move to a more welcoming state. A very bad piece of legislation sponsored by the trial lawyers of the state was recently passed in the wee hours of the morning by a lame duck Illinois legislature.

Illinois lawmakers fast tracked a contentious bill that will have a crippling effect on the residents and businesses in this state. HB3360 would force a defendant to pay prejudgment interest in a lawsuit or arbitration claim whenever monetary damages are awarded. Prejudgment interest refers to additional money courts award for interest back to the injury date. Why be alarmed?

Well the General Assembly is finally back in session! After being off for nearly a year, and allowing our Governor to be an autocrat! Now maybe some checks and balances in Springfield. One group of legislators hasn't been sitting on their hands for the last year, they actually came back to Springfield with an agenda! The Illinois Legislative Black Caucus have stated they've conducted over a 100 hours of hearings on criminal justice reform.

I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Dave Pickett. I could always count on Dave for a big smile, a firm handshake (when his hands weren't full with camera equipment) and a great chat on the sidelines of numerous local sporting events over the years.

The First Amendment offers wide protection for free speech in America. But that right to express an opinion is not unlimited. Everyone knows you can't run into a crowded theater and yell fire. There are also long-established limits on what you can lawfully say and write about individuals and organizations. During a deadly pandemic, spreading disinformation about the novel coronavirus is the equivalent of yelling fire in that crowded theater. The result is the same: it puts people's lives at risk.

Governor Pritzker and Senator Durbin are so upset with Speaker Madigan that they believe he should step down as the Illinois Democratic Party Chair. Senator Duckworth went further, suggesting that he should also step down as Speaker as well! Why their outrage?

Over the past many weeks, I have had multiple conversations with friends and colleagues about the election and its results. I am disheartened by the shear amount of misinformation out in the media now of the allegations being made, and whether there is any evidence of voter fraud being knowingly and purposefully committed. And we all agree that in every election there will be some amount of voter fraud. That said, there are a few key issues with the case of voter fraud that I do not doubt will not sit well with several readers, but it is important for those readers to see this.

Deer-vehicle crashes are more frequent this time of year. The Illinois Insurance Association and its member companies encourage motorists to be alert, focused, and ready to react to deer on roadways in the coming weeks. Tips to avoid deer-related incidents: .. Slow down around timber, field edges, watering holes, and other areas where deer gather.

As we celebrate Thanksgiving, let’s take a moment to remember all those who are spending the holiday on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19: not only doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, but all the other essential workers who protect and care for our communities. On behalf of Memorial Health System, I would like to express my gratitude to these workers and their families. This year, their hard work and dedication mean more than ever.

Unfortunately, the Republican Party seems to have lost its legitimacy. By refusing to accept the results of the election by lying and making up stories of non existent wide spread fraud and creating false doubts they are seriously damaging faith in the American electoral process.

I must admit, I was surprised to read that the VFW will be hosting a Veteran’s Day lunch this year. Traditionally, the VFW has hosted the Memorial Day celebration and the American Legion the Veteran’s Day celebration.
