Prom and graduation season is upon us.  Area high school students will soon be participating in prom and graduation celebrations that occur not only at the school, but also at private locations.  Many students will feel pressure to use alcohol or drugs.  Car crashes kill more teens during weekends of prom and graduation season than any other time of the year. 

Illinois State Police District 10 Troopers will be doing their part to make this a safe prom and graduation season for everyone.  District 10 Troopers will be conducting directed patrols with aggressive enforcement of the ‘Fatal Four’ which includes speeding, DUI, seat belt, and distracted driving.

Iroquois County union workers oppose right-to-work zones

Right-to-work zones, or empowerment zones, would limit the power of labor unions, allowing voters to decide if workers in their communities should be forced to join a union or pay associated dues.
