  1. Good to have a sheriff that works.

    Nygren could not find the pot farm that was in his own backyard.

  2. I am Nick Koczor and I just wanted to thank you for arresting me. I needed this. It gave me another chance. And today I am still being a productive member of society. My life is still far from perfect but I really appreciate the courts for being more tolerant then what they wanted. So again I thank you I could not ever seem to find my way out until there were repercussions. I tried but due to a fear of leaving loved ones behind I could not do this. My oldest brother died while I was locked up and it showed me I’m not invinciple. To the lives I have destroyed and countless family problems I have caused with your loved ones addictions I’m truly SORRY. I just want everyone to know there is a way out of this bondage. Today I have a choice. And I try to do the right thing. I’m not perfect and I still have so much to learn. This is the fact I will not speak of Mchenry County in a bad way. I have no right to judge. They however arrested me before I could cause a lot more harm to a lot of people. Drug addiction is a disease of the mind. I could rationalize and justify my actions while I was locked up. Now with a little time and the friends I have made being out. I can admit graciously I was wrong. Also for anyone who knows me I dislike being wrong. This is where I have to give credit and thanks that all of this happened for a reason. Before this I was clean 2yrs and 3 months I thought I got this thing beat. The facts are clear my disease grows with my recovery and if I don’t take action on a day to day basis I go right back with certain thoughts. Its really not that difficult I just get in my own way. So again the northwest Tasc force thank you again. You 5 know who you are and I don’t need to give names. Thank you again for another chance And one I may or may not have deserved. I am truly grateful!!!!
