Oct. 19 — Rockdale has lost its biggest industry, greatest jobs provider and largest taxpayer. Again. Luminant announced Friday it will close its Sandow 4 and 5 power plants by January, and is also shutting down Three Oaks Mine, throwing more than 450 persons out of work, plus between an estimated 100 and 200 sub-contractors who will also be affected.
