Letters to the Editor: Drobinski would bring Washington problems to 62nd District
I am writing today to express my concerns about one of the candidates running for state representative here in the 62nd District.

Letters to the Editor: Waukegan coal plant changes aren’t good enough
As a Waukegan resident, I’m very disappointed by NRG Energy’s recent decision to continue burning coal on the lakefront. NRG, one of the largest power companies in America, recently announced it will invest $120 million to bring old equipment up to date so sulfur emissions will meet EPA and Illinois standards. On the surface, this may appear a good thing ... but it is not good enough.
