CITY CONSIDERS PRODUCING ELECTRICITY FOR SALE

 CHICAGO. Sept. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was released today by Crain's Chicago Business:
 The City of Chicago is exploring the conversion of a West Side incinerator into an electricity-producing power plant, says Crain's Chicago Business.
 The 20-year-old incinerator at Kilbourn and Chicago avenues processes nearly a third of all garbage collected by the Department of Streets and Sanitation.
 A private company would operate the converted facility which would produce electricity for sale to neighborhood businesses.
 Golf Course, Luxury Homes Latest Report For Ft. Sheridan
 After all the rhetoric over what to do with Ft. Sheridan when it closes, Crain's Chicago Business reports that it looks like it will become a luxury golf course with homes valued up to $550,000.
 Suggestions of what to do with the property in north suburban Highland Park have ranged from its conversion to a nature preserve to a veteran's cemetery.
 The latest plan is said to have a 50-50 chance. Highland Park Mayor Dan Pierce says it's a compromise, but like most compromises, it's controversial.
