The Truth in Lending

Mark Curran wants to be your next Illinois Supreme Court Justice. And he needs your donations.

HaHa, J/K. Lake County favorite son Mark Curran didn't even raise $2,000 last quarter:
Curran was eclipsed by both of his opponents, John Noverini and Daniel Shanes, by a factor of fifty to one.

Everyone knows who Daniel Shanes is, but who is John Noverini?

Noverini is a candidate who lent himself $89,000 from out of his PAC on Oct 4, near the beginning of the reporting period:

He then loaned $95,000 back to the PAC on Dec 31, the last day of the reporting period:

This means for the entire Oct 1 to Dec 21 reporting period, the money was deposited in John Noverini's PAC for a total of 5 days. For the remainder of that time, the money was in Noverini's pocket. And despite everything, Noverini could still claim a fifty-to-one fundraising advantage over Mark Curran.

Note to Ops: It takes brains to be a Supreme Court Justice.

And if that don't beat all, Lake County favorite son Mark Curran will be on your primary ballot again. Curran wants to be your next Illinois Supreme Court Justice.

Curran's opponents have outraised him in the last quarter by a factor of fifty-to-one:

But perennial candidates like Mark Curran have something better than money: ballot name recognition.  His 2020 yardsigns have been seen by motorists up and down the state:
Also, there is an election life-hack that is exclusively available to perennnial candidates. Candidates shouldn't throw away old campaign material. These can be repurposed instead:

Some Additional Shipping Fees

What are the two happiest days in a boater's life? When he buys his boat and when he sells the boat.

The moral of the story? Never rent a boat.

HaHa, the Village of Third Lake does not want you renting any boats either. Because they do not know how to tax you:
Note to Ops: If you do rent a boat on Third Lake make sure it is equipped with a radar detector. Just sayin!

An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure

Playing against type, the McHenryCountyBlog is uncowed. They are uncowed by the risks of COVID -- believing that Cook County vaccination mandates will directly benefit businesses in McHenry County:
If you go there to escape the tyranny of being vaccinated, however, don't try to book a room in a McHenry County hospital:
The number of people admitted to the hospital with COVID-19 hit a pandemic record during the last week of December
McHenry County hospital admissions at record level for COVID-19
Rise in virus cases puts pressure on local hospital systems
While the McHenry County hospitals are full, it is unknown if the same goes for the McHenry County bughouse. The dogmatic theocrats at the McHenryCountyBlog might know.
