I object to Wednesday Journal giving inaccurate information regarding the proposed stadium lights at Oak Park River Forest High School. [OPRF, neighbors make closing arguments on lights, news, Feb. 11] Both the reporter and the editorial claimed that OPRF have the lights on nine nights in the fall and six in the spring. On Jan. 29, the high school presented an exhibition to the plan commission of a sample schedule that included 61 nights that the lights would be on, including 38 games. The conditions also stated that the lights will be on until 8 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, and Friday nights until 9 or 10:30 p.m. depending on the game. I request that you issue a correction on the information you provided.
