Q the Eye/09.16.11

Dear LakeCountyEye,

So where is "Mettawa(Libertyville)"? Was there some odd municipal merger that I wasn't informed of?

Dear TA,

Hawk-eyed operatives will recognize that today's question is also a comment that was posted on a press release story appearing earlier this week on this blog:
Nuclear Energy:
Risks, Benefits, and Alternatives
The author of the question is one of your LakeCountyEye's most prolific commenters, Team America. Not totally coincidentally, TA was also a finalist in this blog's weekly trivia contest ...
The Thrilla in Lake Villa
For his winning entry ....
Sente vs Malnati
Team America is awarded a free upgrade from the comments section, with a walk-on guest appearance on Q the Eye. Way to go TA!

Strong Mayors Make for Strong Codes and Safer Communities
Wherever it may be, safety is doubtless the #1 priority in Mettawa (Libertyville)!

BB - usually your crack research squad is A-1, but you have fumbled as badly as the Bears on this one - MacLean lost election in 2008 by only three votes and hasn't held office since.

hi TA,

Thanks for the FYI.

My face is not red however. While MacLean is not mayor of Mettawa -- our crack research squad has determined that MacLean is mayor of Mettawa(Libertyville). Not to be confused with Mettawa, the village of Mettawa(Libertyville) is located not far from Brigadoon.

Of course - MacLean is Scottish, after all!
