Island Lake, a community of friendly people™, have lately gotten their share and more of media attention. The Daily Herald for instance observes ...
The political infighting that has overtaken the Island Lake village board in recent years has served mostly as a lesson in ineffective local government. Leaders in other towns should take note, lest they be tempted to allow personal passions to draw them down a similar path. The Island Lake tragicomedy, with its bad behavior and gridlock, plays out a couple of Thursdays each month for all to see.
Money wasted on dueling lawyers
Of course whenever a village board is perceived as a tragicomedy of bad behavior and gridlock, they have a problem. More specifically a problem of perceptions, and one that some aggressive PR damage-control would turn around in a jiffy. And by aggressive PR damage-control your LakeCountyEye means, of course, a new website.

Well thanks again to the Daily Herald, your LakeCountyEye is happy to report there are no flies on the Island Lake village board:
Island Lake Trustee Laurie Rabattini is seeking local residents to join a subcommittee that will discuss improving the village's website. Meetings will be in the evenings and weekends as needed. If interested, email

Your LakeCountyEye notes that the domain name ...
is still available.

Operatives wishing to be subcommittee members are urged to act quickly before domain squatters get there first.

I have followed the career of Laurie Rabbatini from her showing up to a meeting with a pig nose on all the way to her rebuttleling the Herald articles.

All I can say is: Pull the plug on this disaster of an elected official. It is amazing to me that she can actually walk upright.
