A Chicago mother from the Southwest Side is being honored today with the Goldman Environmental Prize for North America for her fight to clean-up the air in and around the Little Village neighborhood.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Saturday unveiled plans to redevelop three old industrial sites on the Southwest Side – including the two infamous coal plants that closed last month.
An era is ending in Chicago: The last two coal-fired generating plants are in the process of shutting down over the next few weeks.

Eight protesters who spent more than 24 hours on a perch on a power plant smokestack on the city’s Near West Side were arrested as soon as they came down Wednesday morning in bad weather.
