The Chronicle welcomes new editor Randall Weissman

Homewood trustees approved a resolution endorsing the Daly Group LLC for the development of a casino.

The Illinois Gaming Board will be hearing presentations from applicants competing for a South Suburban casino license on Oct. 13 and is expected to award the license in the coming months.

Approving an endorsement agreement prepares the village to move forward with development if the operator of the casino, Wind Creek, is awarded that license.

The board vote was 5-1 with Trustee Karen Washington casting the no vote.

Washington said she has concerns about the impact a casino could have on the village . . .
