Auctions Speak Louder Than Words

Psych!Maybe the calendar does read May, but it feels like July. And, it goes without saying, when summer weather arrives, Lake County wastes no time getting itself out-of-doors and into other people's discards for a chance to pick through their unwanted cast-offs.

As readers of this blog are accumulatively aware ...
What's In Store?
Your LakeCountyEye is always on the lookout for a rummage sale. So when Lake County holds a countywide municipal auction, your LakeCountyEye notices:
The Lake County Municipal Vehicle & Equipment Auction will be held Saturday, May 18 at the Lake County Fairgrounds at 1060 E. Peterson Road, Grayslake. Inspection and registration for the auction will be Friday May 17, as well as on auction day. Auction items include police cars, seized vehicles, vans, pickup trucks, trailer, computers, office equip., bikes, and misc. items from Lake County and other local communities.
