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.

Letters to the Editor: Fighting for less coal pollution in Waukegan
“Although NRG is looking for praise for reducing coal pollution in Illinois — in part by installing legally required emission controls at the Waukegan plant and in part by upgrading or closing plants in other communities — the glaring fact remains that NRG’s decision will subject Waukegan to coal pollution and the wide-ranging health risks associated with coal pollution for years to come.”
