Author: Editor

Republican state Sen. Sue Rezin of Morris on Tuesday became the latest contender for the GOP nomination to take on freshman Democratic U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood of Naperville next year. 

Rezin announced she has filed a declaration of candidacy and other paperwork with the Federal Election Commission for a run in the sprawling suburban 14th Congressional District. She is among at least a half-dozen Republicans looking to take on the first-term Democrat in a district that had traditionally held strong Republican leanings.

Will County Children's Advocacy Center earns $75,000 grant to help victims

Author: Editor

The Will County Children’s Advocacy Center received a $75,000 federal grant to expand its resources for victims of child pornography and child sex trafficking. 

This is the third time that the advocacy center has received a grant from the National Children’s Alliance, according to a news release. The Will County Children’s Advocacy Center was one of only 34 CACs across the nation to receive the grant for services or training, and the only one in Illinois to receive the grant for services.

“The Will County Children’s Advocacy Center is continually expanding the services it provides to the most vulnerable of populations – children who have been sexually abused or exploited,” Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow, the chairman of the Will County CAC’s board of directors, said in the release. “As a nonprofit organization, we rely upon grants like this to help us continue evolving with creative programs and offerings to meet the needs of our communities.”

Congressman Foster wants to allow 'Dreamers' to serve in military

Author: Editor

U.S. Rep. Bill Foster, D-Naperville, introduced a resolution in support of allowing so-called “Dreamers,” or undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country as children, to be able to serve in the military. 

Foster argued that allowing undocumented immigrants to serve would improve readiness and let young people who grew up in the U.S. serve the country, according to a news release.
