Parents, Patch wants to hear from you on the questions that get families talking.
Welcome to "Hey, Mom and Dad"—a weekly feature where we ask our Facebook fans to share their views on parenting. Every week, we get the conversation started by taking a look back at a question we asked parents the week before on Patch Facebook pages from around the area.

State Sen. and County Board chairman candidate Chris Lauzen responds to Geneva Mayor and County Board candidate Kevin Burns' press release on garbage incineration.
To the Editor: I have not proposed a “garbage incineration” plan. In fact, my legislative record includes opposition to the Robbins, IL, incineration plant with then state Sen.

Thomas Edison remarked, “Invention is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.” In order for us to innovate and bring global best practices to benefit Kane County citizens and taxpayers, we must be willing to survey every safe modern technology that may improve residents’ quality-of-life. I favor comprehensive reviews in all areas of …
