Bureau Of Prisons http://northernpublicradio.org en Light At The End Of Tunnel For Thomson Opening http://northernpublicradio.org/post/light-end-tunnel-thomson-opening <p></p><p>Federal officials are taking initial steps in their plans to open the Thomson Correctional Center. They say they’re eager to activate the modern, but little-used facility, which was sold by the state of Illinois last fall.
