JOLIET — Two women whose loved ones are residents at Sunny Hill Nursing Home expressed support for striking union workers Wednesday but also concern that the strike had entered its third day. They want Will County officials to come to an agreement with about 1,000 members of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 1028 so the residents at the county-owned nursing home are cared for by people who know them and care about them, instead of temporary workers from outside agencies. Jo Ann Caretto said her mom, Charlotte Poulos, 93, now is being cared for by strangers. …
JOLIET — Former Will County Board member Cory Singer, who lost his race against incumbent County Executive Larry Walsh in the 2012 election, wants to be back on the county board. The Frankfort Republican announced Wednesday that he will file nominating petitions next week to run in the March primary for county board District 2. Singer, 41, lost to Walsh in an election year when Democrats gained an advantage over Republicans on the county board for the first time in 32 years. The votes are tied 13-13, but Democrat Walsh has the tie-breaking vote. Singer attributes his loss against Walsh …
Financially struggling Dixmoor has decided to dissolve its fire department at the end of the month. In a letter dated Tuesday, the village attorney notified the union representing fire department employees “that this shall serve as notice that the Village will be moving forward with implementing the dissolution of the Fire Department. The final effective date shall be December 1, 2013.” Earlier this year, newly elected Mayor Dorothy Armstrong said Dixmoor was facing a budget deficit of more than $1 million. Armstrong said it was costing the village $773,000 a year, a third of its revenue, to maintain its fire …
A Country Club Hills alderman is questioning a 2009 arrangement in which the police chief at the time provided private security for the city-owned amphitheater and paid cash to her employees — including the current police chief. Regina Evans was the police chief from 2009 through 2011. When told of documents obtained by the Sun-Times that say Evans provided private security for the city amphitheater in 2009 at the time she was chief, Ald. Vincent Lockett said Wednesday that he was unaware of the arrangement. “That would definitely be a conflict of interest,” Lockett said.

Matt and Yvette Hodges knew a tornado was possibly headed toward Mokena on Sunday. But it wasn’t until they got the afternoon phone call from Yvette’s father that they discovered that downstate Washington — where they lived as children — had been devastated by the massive storm. “My dad called me as the tornado was hitting,” Yvette Hodges said. “Their house was spared but they saw it coming at them. ... and I could hear the panic in his voice.” Yvette Hodges said when she told her husband what was happening, she “immediately knew” she would have to stop him …
Traffic was snarled for a few hours Wednesday on westbound Interstate 80 after a semi truck with a load of biscuits jackknifed just west of U.S. 30 near New Lenox, according to Illinois State Police. The accident, which occurred shortly after 10 a.m., involved two semi tractor trailers and one passenger vehicle and blocked traffic for about three hours. One truck driver had slowed to a stop in the right lane when the driver of the tractor trailer behind him tried to change lanes, but sideswiped the other truck, splitting open the trailer on the second semi, Trooper Guy Vancina …
A new, long-term water supply agreement with Oak Lawn has received tentative approval from Tinley Park trustees. Tinley Park — along with Mokena, New Lenox, Oak Forest and Orland Park — jointly negotiated a 40-year contract with Oak Lawn, which is embarking on a multimillion-dollar project to upgrade the system that supplies those suburbs and seven others with Lake Michigan water from Chicago. The water contract for the five communities lapsed in 2011, with Oak Lawn extending its terms until the end of this year. A focus of the talks on the new deal has been how the towns and …
In August, flanked by village officials and his new police chief, Robbins Mayor Tyrone Ward stood in the village hall and declared a new chapter for his impoverished village, which was still reeling from the revelation that about 200 rape kits, some nearly 30 years old, had languished untested in a police evidence room. Now, just three months later, Ward and Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart are locked in a power struggle over the Robbins Police Department’s future. Dart claims there are serious problems within the department, and he’s threatening a takeover. A team of police administrators from Dart’s office …
