Which of These People are Behind Bars?

Dick Barr, a Lake County Board Commissioner, alleges that his car was robbed on Christmas Eve. His proof is a porch-cam video of his driveway:
Did Dick Barr file a police report? If not, then why not? If someone broke into your car on your driveway, wouldn't you call the police?

In Chicago there is a code of silence that they call don't snitch:
It's an old problem and an old code — "don't snitch." And it exists everywhere. But in Chicago, where homicides and shootings are up significantly this year, that old code is leaving a rising number of violent crimes unsolved.
In Chicago, Violence Soars And Witnesses Go Silent
But isn't Lake County supposed to be better than Chicago? Shouldn't Dick Barr march right down to the Round Lake Beach Police Headquarters and tell them everything he knows?  If he hasn't already, why hasn't he?

And Dick Barr absolutely needs to show the police the video.  That's because even though Lake County has not seen any snow since last March, the video shows a solid coat of snow on the ground. And Dick Barr, an actual elected Lake County Board Commissioner, will need to explain where all that snow came from.

Because the police aren't stupid.

Some Guys Belong Behind Bars

Lake County Board Member Dick Barr filed an unbelievable report on social media, claiming his car was burglarized at his Round Lake Beach home, twice on Christmas Eve:
Lake County Board Member Dick Barr posted security camera videos early Christmas Day on social media showing his car being burglarized twice. The security camera video showed a masked suspect getting out of the passenger side of a vehicle and running up to Barr's vehicle that was parked in the driveway of his Round Lake Beach home.
Lake County board member says his car was burglarized twice on Christmas Eve while he was delivering presents
This is a photo from Barr's video:
Now, anyone who lives in Lake County knows there hasn't been any snow on the ground since last March -- unlike what you see in Dick Barr's photo:
Your LakeCountyEye checked the Round Lake Beach weather report:
The temperature there on Dec 24 was a balmy 54 degrees. Precipitation was .02 inches (about average for the Gobi desert).

Sneezin's Greetings

Secret Santa
Did Santa Claus bring a COVID test-kit and put one in your stocking? If Santa had read the label correctly he would have put it in your nose.


There is good news for anyone who lives in Lake County. You are less likely to have COVID than those who live in McHenry County. Twice as less likely as those in Wisconsin:
New cases of COVID-19 in Lake County increased 72.23% in the past week, to 370.4 per 100,000 residents as of Friday, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. In suburban Cook County, the average is 299.83 new cases, a 62.16% jump. The numbers are more pronounced in McHenry County to the west, with 521.81 new cases per 100,000 residents, a 56.38% increase; and across the state line in Kenosha County, Wisconsin, the average is 821, a jump of 77%, according to the CDC.
Lake County’s COVID cases increase, as it continues to lead state in vaccination rate
The bad news is Santa had been down every chimney in McHenry County before he even flew into your town. And every chimney in Wisconsin as well. So whatever it is that Santa left under your tree, creosote is the least of your worries.

What a Nudge

Is that a gun in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
How bad does hasbeen Lake County favorite son Ted Nugent want to gin up sales for his new CD? So bad, he sent a copy to the President:
TED NUGENT Says He Sent A Copy Of His Latest 'Pro-Gun' Song To President JOE BIDEN
The CD, which contains these lyrics ...
Come and take it
Go ahead and try go ahead and die
comes with high hopes to be a big hit when played at the next State of the Union Address.

In related news, an environmentally conscious Lake County will be banning single-use plastics:
In what was described as a small but important step, the Lake County Board on Tuesday adopted a policy banning the use of single-use plastics at its operations by Jan. 1, 2023.
Lake County Board adopts policy banning single-use plastics by 2023
A County official told your LakeCountyEye: "Absolutely, Ted Nugent's CD will be covered by the ban. Nobody ever listens to a Ted Nugent record more than one time."

Secret Weapon

Happiness is a Warm Gun (Lennon/McCartney)
There are many revelations yet to be disclosed by the Capitol Riot Investigation. One of the most shocking is that the President has a Secret Santa: Ted Nugent.


Honorary Lake County favorite son Ted Nugent sent one of his songs to Joe Biden for Christmas. Nugent says the ballad ...
is a love song to the punks in our government who think that they have the right to infringe on our constitutionally guaranteed, God-given individual freedoms. So I sent them a love song. In fact, I sent a copy of 'Come And Take It' to [U.S. president] Joe Biden
TED NUGENT Says He Sent A Copy Of His Latest ‘Pro-Gun’ Song To President JOE BIDEN
Come and take it
Come and take it
Go ahead and try go ahead and die
Come and take it

Come and Take It

There is no truth to the rumor that Ted Nugent's Secret Santa is a Secret Service agent.

What's the Beef?

... said the three-legged wedding usher.
That sound of a roaring freight train you hear is not a deadly tornado. It is a deadly freight train:
It's 2013 again, only instead of Barrington leading the charge against the Canadian National's acquisition of the EJ & E Railroad, this time several suburbs along the Irving Park Road corridor are organizing to oppose Canadian Pacific's merger with Kansas City Southern.
Suburbanites have till Friday to speak up about rail merger
More trains on the ground will mean more money in the pocket of someone, to say the least.

An industry spokesman told your LakeCountyEye: "Of course, any increase in rail traffic will mean an increase in exploding oil trains. We are taking all the necessary safeguards by installing extra-heavy-duty cow-catchers on all of our engines."

Oh Give Me a Home

Uncirculated Condition
Do you have a lost pet? Sadly, the Sheriff's Dept does not have the resources to help. If your pet is an American Bison however, well that's another story:
Authorities said the owner of the animal reported it missing to the Lake County Sheriff's Office in mid-September.
Sheriff warns residents not to approach ‘Tyson the Bison’ which has been on loose for months in Lake County
This lost bison ...
is making a name for herself in the Cary area, an hour northwest of Chicago, with citizens posting photos and videos of her on Facebook, along with jokes and statements of support. A local artist has painted a portrait of the wily bovine — dubbed Billy by her fans.
A runaway buffalo roams the streets of suburban Cary, inspiring social media posts, art and Sasquatch comparisons: ‘Are we dreaming this?’
Going by several aliases -- such as "Tyson the Byson" and "Buffalo Billy" -- the runaway ungulate has eluded capture because no one knows exactly which name they need to to call out. One thing is known, there are ten names the bison does not answer to:
10 Rejected Names for
the Lake County Lost Bison
  1. Joe Blow the Buffalo

  2. Terramycin the Bison

  3. Covid the Bovid

  4. Buffalo Bill Barr

  5. Lice In the Bison

  6. Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

The Revolution Will Not be Tote-Bag-ized

Question of the Day: Why are Governors Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott, US Senator Ted Cruz, and US Reps Jeff Duncan, Bill Posey and Lauren Boebert all chanting Let's Go Brandon?

The short Answer:
Let's Go Brandon
is the alt-right's new rebel yell.

It is ...
a euphemism that many people in conservative circles are using in place of saying, "F*** Joe Biden."
Here's what 'Let's Go, Brandon' actually means and how it made its way to Congress
That's right, Let's Go Brandon is your way of giving the middle finger to Joe Biden.

And if you itch to flip off the President, then why not do it with a Let's Go Brandon Tote Bag? You heard that correct, the McHenry County GOP will be giving away Let's Go Brandon tote bags at their next fundraiser:
Just in time for the holidays, why not give a Let's Go Brandon tote bag to that hard-to-shop-for grandparent? Or take one to that next Secret Santa office party? Is there a better way to publicly declare your allegiance to the resistance?

Best of all, these are easy to carry when you're at church or the grocery store or just out caroling. Nothing says "I am an insurrectionist" like your Let's Go Brandon tote bag!

OMG Omicron

With great power comes great responsibility.
Note to Ops: Run for your lives. The Omicron Variant is coming:
As Lake County awaits first omicron variant case, health officials suggest everyone ‘continue using the same precautions we have been using all along’
One public safety expert told your LakeCountyEye: "Make no mistake, the Omicron Variant is dangerous. But this is no Thanos or Dormammu. As far as Marvel Villains go, I'd rank Omicron Variant somewhere between Doctor Octopus and Green Goblin. No need to call a Spiderman or Wolverine. Captain America would be able to clobber an Omicron Variant."

Tough Guy

He is a former anti-abortion lobbyist. State Senator Daniel McConchie now wants you to go to jail:
Illegal abortions are guaranteed to be on the rise this year. Dan McConchie says ...

Women who need an illegal abortion brazenly thumb their noses at the law. While McConchie condemns those who ...
work insidiously to lift up the lives of felons and those with no respect for rule of law

Women who receive illegal abortions are criminals who should be kept in jail. And McConchie strongly opposes ...
efforts to allow prisoners to walk out of jail without bail

Turkey Shoot

I'll give you my gun when you pry it from my cold dead turkey.
BREAKING NEWS: Thanksgiving has been cancelled in Lake County.

Armed with an AR-15 military-style assault weapon, the Thanksgiving Turkey this week gunned his way out of the turkey farm.

The Thanksgiving Turkey was subsequently apprehended. But despite being in illegal possession of a lethal firearm, and despite admitting to the use of deadly force, a jury acquitted the Thanksgiving Turkey of all charges.

One jury spokesman said it was a clear-cut case of self-defense.

The whereabouts of the Thanksgiving Turkey is currently unknown.

Boom Boom Boom Boom / I'm gonna shoot you right down / Right off your feet / Take you home with me / Boom Boom Boom Boom
The Lake County exploding oil train did not explode. And the Lake County ethylene-oxide cloud did not explode either. Nor, for that matter, did the Lake County nuclear plant, nor the Lake County mosquito abatement truck.

So, what did explode in Lake County last week?
There is no question many northern Lake County residents either heard or felt something Friday afternoon. But what it was remains a mystery. At about 3:30 p.m., emergency dispatch centers began getting reports of what sounded like a large explosion.

Those Who Cannot Remember the Past are Condemned to Repeat It

Can I put you down for a yardsign?
A Halloween treat goes to the first person who can name this Illinois GOP Congressman who gained notoriety for opposing Donald Trump. You would be as likely to see him on TV as in his Congressional office. His far-rightwing Congressional career ended because of redistricting.

Park Your Drachmas in a Harvard Barn

Oh Noes Moto
Anyone who has ever seen the McHenryCountyBlog will not be surprised -- but the Russian Mafia has bought McHenry County.

A shell corporation called Optima bought the defunct Harvard Mororola plant in western McHenry County. Big surprise, the US Government now says the plant was not bought to crank out iPhones:
the DOJ complaint notes that the Harvard plant purchase was part of the sprawling Optima money laundering scheme (including fraudulent loans used to purchase the plant in the first place).
A Ukrainian Oligarch Bought a Midwestern Factory and Let it Rot. What Was Really Going On?
U.S. prosecutors say the decaying plant was part of a broader scheme to hide millions in stolen dollars across the American Midwest.
Don't plan on moving to Harvard to find work at the plant, it will have to be demolished by the Village ...
the net cost for that, after salvage, is probably three to five times the city's annual budget. It will be a financial catastrophe.

A Friend in Need is a Friend in High Places

Well then your name isn't Ex-Barrington Hills Mayor Martin McLaughlin.

As readers of this blog are aware ...
The Friends in High Places Zone
over the past 5 years, members of the Sanfilippo family donated $15,000 to Martin McLaughlin.

And now McLaughlin is holding a fundraiser at the Sanfillipo Residence in Barrington Hills. Coincidence? Your LakeCountyEye does not think so:
Note to Ops: Politics is about raising dough.  This is the recipe for success:

By all indications a proponent of tough clean-air regulations, Curran was critical of Lake County's Republican smoke filled rooms:

Won't Somebody Think of the Children?

The Lake County Very Silly Party is spreading a broadsheet ...
They want to cancel Halloween!

Their demands are stark and transparent ...


"If you are an adult living in fear of children who don't cover their faces it sounds like you could use some psych help. It's not children's job to suffocate themselves to make you feel safe. If you're that scared, STAY HOME and keep your fears off of everyone else's children."

You bet, your LakeCountyEye is scared. Scared that Halloween will be totally ruined if the kids are not allowed to wear their masks.

OK, your LakeCountyEye understands that some people may harbor some religious or psychological animus toward Halloween. If so then on October 31, simply decline to participate. Why spoil the fun for every kid?
