Another Day Another Dollar

An actual unretouched screen cap of an actual contribution to Mark Curran:

By all appearances, Lake County favorite son Mark Curran loaned his campaign one dollar.

Why would the Curran campaign need to borrow a dollar? A down payment on some Trump swag? Probably not:
One GOP spokesman told your LakeCountyEye: "Curran may have won his primary without raising any money. But that trick is not going to work for him again in November."

Your LakeCountyEye will keep you apprised when further developments warrant.

Wire the Money

That smoke you smell is not your neighbor burning leaves. No, it is from Richard Uihlein, who has money to burn:
A suburban billionaire and his wife have contributed millions of dollars to conservative candidates and organizations across Illinois and the nation this election cycle, state and federal records show.
Which candidates are being backed by suburban megadonors Richard and Elizabeth Uihlein?
Lake County moneybags Richard Uihlein has, in particular, lavished his largesse on Dan McConchie:
Uihlein has given to Illinois Republicans running for a variety of other offices this cycle, including:
• State Sen. Dan McConchie of Hawthorn Woods, whose campaign received $277,137

Which candidates are being backed by suburban megadonors Richard and Elizabeth Uihlein?
McConchie is a former anti-abortion lobbyist. This is from 2013:
Dan McConchie, vice president of public affairs for Washington-based Americans United for Life, was the keynote speaker. He cautioned there is "no one silver bullet" that will suddenly prohibit legalized abortion. But he urged abortion foes to bring pressure upon legislators to force votes on initiatives aimed at chipping away at legal abortion, suggesting it offers the best path towards success.

From the same year:
The Sioux City Journal reports on yesterday's rally in Iowa:
It's been 40 years since the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion, but Daniel McConchie isn't giving up hope of overturning that decision.

For the record, Uihlein cofounded and is CEO of the ULINE shipping supply company. A variety of coat hangers are available from the ULINE catalog:

Sunk Cost

Question of the Day:

What is the difference between the McHenry County Blog, the International Space Station, and this photo posted on the McHenry County Blog?
Answer: The photo may appear to be a sunken boat with waving BIDEN flags. But even someone looking down from the orbiting space station can see that the image was photo shopped.

Not so obvious is where the boat sank. Sharpeyed operatives may notice a boat sticker:
Note to Ops: Boat Responsibly!

Whatever Floats Your Boat

An actual unretouched screencap from the tinfoil theocrats at the McHenry County Blog:
Judging from the picture, the McHenryCountyBlog boat has been under water for a few years, maybe since before Joe Biden was elected:

Brown v Board of Stagnation

An actual unretouched screencap from Lake County's 1# fakenews source, the Lake County Gazette:

To find out why everything is stagnating, your LakeCountyEye contacted the Russian Troll Farm that provides all the content for the Lake County Gazette. They said: "We dispatched a busload of critical race theory teachers to Deerfield, through Long Grove. We don't know what happened to them."
That's all your LakeCountyEye has. Go critical.

The Party of Fiscal Responsibility

Hasta La Vista Baby
Note to Ops, we have a winner. This week's Joe Walsh Lifetime Achievement Award goes to Lake County GOP Congressional Candidate Joe Severino:
Businessman Joe Severino contends he had to file to protect his interests and that he is the victim of a bad court ruling and bad lawyering. But with claimants against him including the Internal Revenue Service and the Illinois Department of Revenue, the action will not be helpful to him
Bankruptcy filing emerges in North Shore congressional race
A GOP spokesman said: "(Former Lake County Congressman) Joe Walsh left behind some big shoes to fill. Even one of those shoes would be hard to fill. We are confidant that our Congressional candidate will step in it."

Bad Things Come in Third Lake

For adults only.
Did you know that Clarke Mosquito is in the business of also killing aquatic plants?

The residents of Third Lake ought to know, if they don't:
On Friday June 24th Clarke will be treating both Third Lake and Druce Lake for invasive weeds. They will be applying the application within the outlined treatment zones which can be found here.
Yellow Flag – Lakes being treated for invasive weeds
Do you want Clarke dispensing herbicides in your lake? Not if you believe the report from an expert at the last Third Lake Village meeting:
"Let me start with what we are doing to our lake is not making any logical sense, and appears to actually be detrimental to the health of the lake and it's inhabitants. The proposed treatments are being done far to late in the season, using a general photosynthesis inhibiting herbicide that kills anything it comes in contact with."
"This is going to kill most of the vegetation in the lake. That alone should be enough to give us reason to pause this treatment, however there are a few other questions based on information from Clarke that just does not make any sense."
"By doing what is proposed we will kill the majority of the aquatic vegetation in the lake, which will cause oxygen depletion and that will kill fish."
"They did something similar in Silver Lake MN when they did exactly what is being proposed here in treating both the curley leaf and milfoil at the same time. It suffered a major decline in water quality and native plant diversity. It took years to recover."
"Basically, we stand at a point where we are going to do more harm than good by moving forward with the proposed treatments based on the results from similar efforts elsewhere. This combined with the illogical answers and information provided by our selected vendor leads me to believe that it is unwise both financially and as a steward of the lake to allow this treatment at this time."
"I ask you to not make the mistake of allowing the inappropriate treatment that is going to kill our lake at this time."

Village of Third Lake / Jun 20 2022 Minutes
After Clarke does a job of dispensing herbicides into Third Lake, what's next? Clarke will be dispensing insecticides in the Village of Third Lake:
Clarke will be performing the second Village wide adult mosquito control application this evening, July 21, 2022
