This is the October 20, 2016 edition of Ward & Jones!

Larry and I want to thank Kane County Coroner candidate Tao Martinez for coming in and answering our open-ended questions. There ain’t nuthin’ better than educating the electorate.

And we’re running out of time, but any other candidate (above write-ins) who wants to come on the show before the big day, all you have to do is ask!

Monday! The Smiling Conservative and I will cover the final presidential debate among many other things. Until then…

Ward & Jones, October 17, 2016


The Smiling conservative was a bit feisty this morning, but he’s no match for yours truly.

We talked about the Cubs, an unshackled Donald Trump, Kane County Chairman Lauzen continuing the downward spiral, should child sexual abuse statute of limitations be removed, should Denny Hastert have to pay more hush money, and the ACLU takes a serious look at Elgin’s new public nuisance ordinance.

Thursday! Kane County Coroner candidate Tom Martinez. Until then…

Listen to the October 13, 2016 edition of Ward & Jones!


From Trump-esque Republican chickens coming home to roost, to Elgin’s new downtown nuisance ordinance, to alcohol at movie theaters, the Smiling Conservative and I had a few disagreements today.

It’s a good thing I’m always right!

Monday! I will give a first-hand report on the Sunday evening Cubs game. Until then…
