to Gather for
Obama Watch Parties
Crystal Lake—McHenry County Democrats will gather tonight at watch parties to celebrate with the 70,000 people at Denver’s INVESCO Field as Barack Obama accepts the nomination for President of the United States.
Many of the county’s leading Democrats including Illinois General Assembly, county wide, and County Board candidates will be at the Crystal Party Bar at the Holiday Inn Crystal Lake, 800 South Three Oaks Road. The party will open up at 7:30. The celebration is sponsored by Northwest Suburbs for Obama.
Becky Deignan will hold a house party at her Cary home, at 10 Boxwood Lane.
The three parties are among thousands nationwide organized on the Obama for President campaign’s unique inter-active social networking web site my.barack.obama.com. People can log on, enter a local zip code, find parties in their area and register to attend for free.

And to explain the graphic, Heck of a Guy blogger Allan Showalter has suggested the McHenry County Board adopt Dick Tracy as the center of its county seal. The two photos above were found in his story,
I agree, because it is distinction and would provide instant differentiation from all other county seals.
And, can you think of anything that epitomizes McHenry County?
If I could, I’d put it on the masthead of McHenry County Blog.
The county could even turn county offices into tourist traps by selling copies of the county seal that were different (that is, authentic) from those merchandised by local stores.
In a fit of inspiration after Barack Obama showcased his personal campaign seal, Showalter thought maybe Obama might try out his suggestion as well.
Perhaps a well-connected McHenry County Democrat could get through to him.
