Will County prosecutor tapped to fill McAsey's House seat

Author: Editor

Democratic Party leaders chose a Will County assistant state's attorney Saturday to fill the year and a half remaining to state Rep. Emily McAsey's term representing the 85th District. 

John Connor, 47, a Will County prosecutor for 14 years, has been involved in such high-profile cases as the murder trials for Drew Peterson, a former Bolingbrook police officer convicted of killing his second wife, and Christopher Vaughn, an Oswego man who's serving a life term for killing his wife and three children in Channahon.

Connor, a Lockport resident, said he's excited for the opportunity and knows he'll have to hit the ground running when he heads to Springfield Monday for the special session at which legislators could approve a state budget before a June 30 deadline.

Weather Channel sends Trump a message: ‘Still Don’t Care? Proof You Should’

Author: Editor

When President Trump announced at 3 p.m. Thursday that he would be pulling the U.S. from the Paris climate accord, the Weather Channel editors were ready. They turned the “official homepage of Mother Nature” — usually devoted to tornadoes, blizzards, heat waves and hurricanes — into a not-so-subtle protest.

“So, What Happens to Earth Now?” said one headline that appeared on its home page.

“Still Don’t Care? Proof You Should,” said another, linking to a story about “ghost forests” that are dying off as a result of rising tides and sea levels.
