Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down for Lombard

THUMBS UP: June Kortum, founder of The Gathering Lighthouse in Lombard, is on a mission to help people get their lives back on track through spiritual and emotional counseling. The nonprofit in downtown Lombard is open to the public and strictly donation-based, meaning there's no fee structure. Good luck in the new venture.

THUMBS DOWN: A system conversion error at Illinois American Water Company left about 2,400 Lombard and Glen Ellyn residents making up the difference of about $200 on their monthly bills. Mistakes happen, but this was an unfortunate one.
