As always has been the case, the nation today faces many formidable challenges. Eight years after the Great Recession threatened to wipe out our economy, the climb back to prosperity has been methodical rather than spectacular.
Terrorism remains a significant menace, mutating into more insidious forms that become increasingly difficult to detect.
Our national debt grows. The gap between rich and poor widens. Immigration issues go unaddressed. The cost of college skyrockets. Medical costs do, too.

Two of the three candidates vying for a two-year term to serve Will County Board District 6 in the Nov. 8 election are at odds.
Two of the candidates are currently on the board – Don Gould, R-Shorewood, and Ragan Freitag, R-Wilmington.
But challenger Joe VanDuyne, D-Wilmington, has a problem with Freitag’s representation of the district, so he’s campaigning to take her spot.
Congressman Bill Foster has made a name for himself as the only scientist elected to serve on Capitol Hill. And that expertise serves him well, not just in matters of policy relating to such issues as climate change but also in terms of temperament and style.
Foster, seeking his third term representing the 11th Congressional District, is thoughtful and quietly effective and we see no reason to oust him this year.
