  1. ” because of its high concentration of low income families.”


    Poverty levels:

    Crystal Lake 8.9
    Marengo 11.3
    Woodstock 19.6
    Harvard 26.6

  2. The entertainment continues with my compassionate conservative friends seeking to find a mathematical way to justify with numbers and percentages the denial of services and aid to the poor. Should the aid be directed to Harvard instead? Remember, there is a high concentration of Latino families in Harvard, including many undocumented immigrants. I’m sure they will agree with this idea. Or not? Sit back, relax, and enjoy the compassionate conservative way of sympathising with the poor. Was that 2018 I heard knocking? Tic, tock, tic, tock…

  3. Angel, listen. Participate in the discussion with serious people to solve serious problems by offering suggested solutions, evidence-based observations, questions which relate to the topic at issue.

    You are accumulating a disturbing written record of obsessive stream-of-consciousness.

  4. You are talking to a flake, Susan. He doesn’t have a perception of the fathomless federation and lives in his own dream world.

  5. From the sunshine blogger’s desk: “This is a journal of news and opinion designed to bring to light matters of public interest and to encourage public participation in the governmental process.” Tic, tock, tic, tock…

  6. Private institution not our tax $$$.

    Perhaps a email to those organizations suggesting they direct it to where it’s needed the most would be a better path than whining about it here.

  7. Although nob is right about the subject – this is a church. It has nothing to do with tax dollars. I do see a big problem with them promoting toxic vacinations, though. No one need ever take those deadly things.

  8. I’ve noticed Cal has a Kathy Bates character from misery following him closely. Too funny. Tick tock indeed. After 2018 she will need to double up on her meds. In the meantime thanks for keeping us informed Cal.

  9. Section 8 deadbeats visited upon the populace in the still of night!

    Sen. Althoff feels such demographic displacement is great.

    Does she feel the higher crime rates/school disruptions are great, too?

  10. Is there a way to find out what the % is of Section 8 folks who have recently relocated to McHenry County?

    Why the increase in Chicago folk being moved out to McHenry?
