Blast Shields

Question of the day:
When in Lake Bluff, what do you say to a pickleball player?
See you in court.
HaHa, the legal guns are out in Lake Bluff and the target is pickleball:
The use of pickleball courts in Lake Bluff's Blair Park has ignited a contentious battle between the village and the Park District, with both sides appearing to dig in for a protracted fight. In a dispute stemming from a noise complaint coming from play on pickleball courts, the two government entities are at odds whether the Park District acted within its authority to operate the courts, and whether village approval was required for the conversion from tennis to pickleball courts.
Lake Bluff, Park District at odds over pickleball courts; 'We have to enforce the zoning code'
Along with noisy pickleball, the Village of Lake Bluff has also banned noisy leaf blowers:
Following a regional examination of the issue with participation from many North Shore communities, the Lake Bluff board instituted the seasonal ban earlier this year as the use of gas-powered leaf blowers have generated environmental concerns and the noise they make is considered an irritant by some.

All that peace and quiet in Lake Bluff no doubt made it easier to hear all of the gunfire coming from neighboring Lake Forest. Where the Shields Township GOP held a social, with open-range target shooting:

Leaves for Greener Pastures

Is that a leaf blower in your pocket?
Much to the chagrin of Lake County moneybags Dick Uihlein, nothing in the Village of Lake Bluff blows:
The Lake Bluff Village Board has denied a request by a prominent local couple, known for making large financial donations to conservative political candidates, for a two-year exemption from the village's new seasonal ban on gas-powered leaf blowers. At their June 27 meeting, village board trustees unanimously supported the recommendation to deny a request from Liz and Dick Uihlein for a two-year exemption on the village's newly instituted seasonal prohibition of gas-powered leaf blowers — which runs from May 15 to Sept. 30 — at their home in Lake Bluff.

Note to Ops: Does City Hall fail to pay you your proper respect? Well, don't get mad, get even. Your village trustees aren't being paid anything to pass those onerous ordinances, and there is a reason for it. That's because the system is set up to encourage rich and powerful guys, as well as local business interests, to get stooges elected to their city councils. And then those stooges can pass onerous ordinances more to your liking.

It's as simple as selling shipping supplies in an age of on-line marketing. Just sayin!

Hunter Blatherer

Don't forget to smash that like and subscribe button.
Question of the Day:
How many conspiracy theorists does it take to change a light bulb?
That's just what they want you to believe.
HaHa, Mark Curran has been airing conspiracy theories on YouTube. And then YouTube cancelled Curran. Which only proves they must be true:
Former Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran was censored by YouTube for posting a video detailing Hunter Biden's connections in international business dealing and alleged sex trafficking connections. "International Child Advocate Attorney Liz Yore knows what type of crimes exist on Hunter Biden's laptop, and was briefed on the massive file that exists now with the House Oversight Committee detailing his massive links to sex trafficking," Curran said on Facebook.
Former Lake County Sheriff Curran: 'YouTube censored our interview earlier this week for no explanation'
For the record, Illinois voters also cancelled Curran last November. Curran was on the ballot for Supreme Court Justice. And before that, Curran was cancelled by the voters in 2020, when he was on the ballot for US Senate. And if that weren't a kick in the pants, the voters cancelled Curran a third time in 2018 when he lost a re-election bid to be Lake County Sheriff.

What's next for Lake County favorite son Mark Curran?

Your LakeCountyEye observes that there isn't anyone, except a handful of losers, running for the Republican Presidential nomination. The field is still wide open. Just sayin!

McHenry County Man Gets Inked

Question of the day:
Who would win in a fight -- the McHenry County man who shot himself in the foot or the Chicago Tribune Creepy Cartoonist?
Answer: The McHenry County man who shot himself in the foot. He's insanely faster on the draw.

HaHa, the Creepy Tribune Cartoonist™ printed a drawing of the McHenry County man who shot himself in the foot:
One local cowpoke told your LakeCountyEye: "I'm skeptical. That guy would be wearing overshoes if he was working in McHenry County."
