In manifestly unrelated news, police have yet to apprehended the gunman who fired dozens of shots at a busy McHenry County intersection:
the incident happened around 1:25 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Route 31 and Bull Valley Road in McHenry. According to an alert sent out to area law enforcement officers in McHenry County, a subject in a red Jeep was armed with an AR-15. The subject began shooting the AR-15 out of the back of the Jeep towards another vehicle that was traveling behind it, the radio alert said.

Shooting the Bull Valley

pew pew pew
If statistics are correct, anyone taking a shot in McHenry County probably isn't being vaccinated:
McHenry police are investigating reports of multiple gunshots fired about 1:25 p.m. Sunday in the intersection of Bull Valley Road and Route 31. Police were seen gathering evidence in the intersection for hours, using cameras and drones at the scene. No injuries have been reported and the incident appears to be isolated, police said in a news release.

Authorities are on the lookout for a person or persons hopping around on one foot. And nursing a gunshot wound on the other.

Supreme Being

Stop in the name of love before you break my heart.
As if to prove the old adage, out of sight out of mind, Lake County favorite son Mark Curran is back and wants to be your next Illinois Supreme Court Justice:
Republican Mark Curran, who lost the U.S. Senate race in 2020 to Sen. Dick Durbin, says God wants him to run for the Illinois Supreme Court, so he's following the call.
CURRAN's MISSION FROM GOD
Curran desires your support, but Establishment types, Party Hacks and Freemasons need not apply:
"We are taking on the Establishment, the Party Hacks, the Freemasons and those that could care less that Individual Liberty and Conscience Protection are no longer cherished or protected."
CURRAN's MISSION FROM GOD
The Illuminati who, for the record, were not mentioned in the statement, agreed to take a CURRAN yardsign.

And Curran reiterated he believes he is on a mission from God:
"I believe God wants me to make this run.”
CURRAN's MISSION FROM GOD
A spokesperson for God said: "PSYCH!"

Masking For It

Perhaps banking on the assumption that a college campus is a place for educated people who trust science and are capable of listening to reason, the College of Lake County has asked you to wear a mask:
All individuals, vaccinated or unvaccinated, are required to always wear a mask while on campus unless eating or drinking in designated spaces.

This requirement applies to anyone who wishes to access the CLC campus. With the possible exception of the College Board of Trustees:

Down and Out in Old Mill Creek

Given that the hock is part of a horse's anatomy, then the Village of Old Mill Creek is in hock.

And in more ways than one. According to the Illinois Comptroller, Old Mill Creek is delinquent:
Illinois State Comptroller - Local Government Division - Delinquent Units
Did you know that lots of democratically elected governments have gone bankrupt through no fault of their own? Ukraine, Belarus, Detroit are a few notable examples.

Note to Ops: There is no shame in being down on your luck. If your hometown is in a hole, why not open a GoFundMe account? Lake County municipalities are generous to a fault. If each one chips in a few bucks, expect to be back in the black in no time!

Lies, Damned Lies and the Big Lie

Note to Ops: Are you looking for the Next Big Lie? Well, look no farther than the Lake County Republican Federation:
The Big Lie has the Big Mo. If you are to believe the Lake County Republican Federation, these Lake County elected offices are occupied by former elected Republican officials: Coroner, State's Attorney, State Rep 52, County Board 4, 5, 7, 12 & 19.

What next? Do not be surprised if they start saying that the President of the United States is still Donald Trump:
The Lake County Republican Fabrication
And wouldn't that be a kick in the head? A lie will circle the globe before the truth can get its shoes on.

Lies My Teacher Told Me

The facts that constitute the Big Lie are easy to understand. Simply repeat over and over that a certain former government official still holds high elected office, even though it ain't so. And by high elected office, your LakeCountyEye means the Lake County Regional Superintendent of Schools.

If the Lake County Republican Federation is to be believed, Roycealee Wood is still the Lake County Regional Superintendent of Schools:
Elected Officials | Lake County Republican Federation
And faster than you can say COVID-19, the Big Lie has spread already from the Lake County Republican Federation to their amanuensis, the Lake County Republican Central Committee:
Elected Republican Officials (Lake County) – Lake County Republicans
One GOP spokesman said: "I have plenty of proof. I have proof in Arizona, Pennsylvania and Georgia. And guess what, it's going to turn out and it's gonna flip. You watch. You're gonna see firsthand. We're gonna flip the Lake County Regional Superintendent of Schools."

The Lake County Republican Fabrication

The Big Lie, like COVID-19, respects no boundaries. And like COVID, the Big Lie has infiltrated Lake County.

If the Lake County Republican Federation is to be believed, Donald Trump is still President of the United States:
Elected Officials | Lake County Republican Federation
It goes without saying that there is a lot of money to be made from the Big Lie. Repeat the Big Lie enough times and Republican donors open their checkbooks.

Well, your LakeCountyEye wants a piece of that action, too!

Note to Trump 2024 Ops: Why not spread your Big Lie on this blog as well? Contact your LakeCountyEye for a free estimate. You are guaranteed a better ROI compared to what you get from that other bush-league website.

Pizza Pallor

Two slices are twice as healthy.
The Lake County toxic gas cloud is leaking out from Wheeling:
Officials identified the material as anhydrous ammonia, used for the refrigeration of processed food. Fire officials said crews mitigated the leak and then remained on location to ventilate the 500,000-square-foot factory, which makes and freezes pizzas. No firefighters were injured.
Seventy employees evacuated, three hospitalized after ammonia leak at Wheeling pizza factory
One observer who was at the scene said: "It looked like a mushroom cloud to me."

Note to Ops: It's all in the delivery.
