  1. Seems as though a lot of “Hispanics” are turning up dead lately in McHenry Co.

    I wonder why that is ?

    Thanks to our lovely politicians like Althoff …. although, to be fair, it may not have anything to do with the sad-sack likes of her, maybe it was just some chap who knew ‘too much’ about the sordid goings on over at the Algonquin Road Dist. under its old misadministration.
