Happy 4th of July Eve

In anticipation of the Fourth of July festivities, it's home improvement time at the LakeCountyEye compound. Look for your LakeCountyEye this week hanging asbestos shingles. According to the News-Sun ...
Drought-like conditions in Lake County are beginning to take their toll for upcoming Fourth of July fireworks shows. Officials in Round Lake Beach and Wauconda on Friday announced they are canceling their towns' fireworks displays, citing the risk of fire from the hot and dry conditions over the past month.

Operatives may add this to the unexpected consequences of global warming: a rain of fireworks and brimstone every Fourth of July.

While on the subject of fire crackers, McHenry County, which had been redistricted to north of the Canadian border, still dismisses global warming as a lamestreammedia hoax ...

But for those still situated in the lower 48, your LakeCountyEye recommends observing some sensible precautions. Every town and TIF district has a parade scheduled, so don't overdo it. Operatives are advised to march in no more than 10 parades on the Fourth -- 12 max. Always bully your way to the head of the parade line-up, especially on those 100+ degree days. In between parades, don't forget to hydrate. And your LakeCountyEye recommends the Route 53 extension for shaving some precious minutes off that dash between municipalities. Finally, nothing makes a mess like a trunk full of Tootsie Rolls and Hershey Kisses -- make sure to fling hardcandy at the kiddies whenever the mercury tops 110.

Follow these simple commonsense precautions and your LakeCountyEye guarantees you many more future Fourth of July parades to come!
