At Tuesday’s meeting of the McHenry County Board, citizens from the Spring Grove-Fox Lake area appeared to object to additional gravel pits in their area.
One of those who spoke mentioned the Thelen Sand and Gravel company.
Hearing the name of the gravel company struck a cord.
I had just looked at recent contributions to McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks.
Here is what was Franks reported to the State Board of Elections:

Supporters of Jack D Franks
Franks pointed out that the issue was not one involving County government because the property was in Spring Grove.
But one speaker told of plans by the gravel firm to put a conveyor belt under a county highway.
That certainly would involve McHenry County government.
