Ring in the New Year with a Bang

If the Times Square Ball is any indication, the new year is arriving not a minute too soon. It's that time of the year again to make resolutions, and number one on the 2013 list is to stay away from the infected websites -- and your LakeCountyEye means it this time.

One infection-free website is the McHenryCountyBlog. The website had been infected with some icky erectile dysfunction malware. Back around Thanksgiving, operatives in search of erectile dysfunction drugs had to look no farther than the McHenryCountyBlog, which was loaded with hidden hyperlinks from foreign websites where these same erectile dysfunction drugs were available -- and without a prescription!

But as readers of this blog are cautiously aware ...
Spam Roast
Q the Eye/12.02.12
your LakeCountyEye schooled the disoriented libertarians at the MchenryCountyBlog on how to remove those unwanted -- heh heh -- trojans from their website. Their website is now safe to visit again -- lookin' good McHenryCountyBlog!

One end-of-year ritual at the McHenryCountyBlog is to post the salaries of public sector employees who work in McHenry County:
Every year state law requires the posting of salaries and fringe benefits exceeding $75,000 for those employees under the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund.
McHenry County Salaries
They number in the hundreds but the McHenryCountyBlog has been posting a few employee names (with salaries) every day, in alphabetical order:
Apparently reading them all at once can induce drowsiness.

Induced drowsiness, however, may be a good thing after a night of induced happiness. For those operatives too hung-over to face the new year, your LakeCountyEye has reproduced -- directly from the McHenryCountyBlog and for your contemplation -- the slumber-inducing salaries of some public employees:

It is unknown whether the tireless tax fighters at the McHenryCountyBlog are old enough to have voted for Teddy Roosevelt. But even if they cast their ballots for Woodrow Wilson, the public sector pensioners at the McHenryCountyBlog can still boast that they speak softly and carry a big stick!
