Channel 7 Covers Crystal Lake GOP McCain Acceptance Speech Party

I missed last Thursday night’s John McCain party at the new Republican Headquarters on Route 14 in Crystal Lake.

You know, the place with the spiffy new sign where Pauly Toyota used to be.

My wife had her Methodist Church small group meeting Thursday night and society frowns on leaving 11-year olds home alone.

I even missed last Thursday night’s airing of the Crystal Lake audience reaction on ABC Channel 7.

In any event, ABC showed up in McHenry County. It was the only suburban video taping I saw on Channel 7.

McHenry County Board member Mary Donner got to be the local star.

She was quoted thusly,

“John McCain is the down-to-earth guy. The commonsense man, the person who’s going to go in and take care of the situation that needs to be taken care of.”

I wonder if Channel 7 came to Crystal Lake because the Northwest Herald has partnered with Channel Two.

ABC wasn’t the only crew on hand.

NASA Education’s John Blanchard brought camera and microphone.

On top you see the lead in shot that was on the Crystal Lake segment of last Thursday’s piece on Channel 7.

Next is McHenry County Board member Mary Donner being interviewed.

John Blanchard can be seen interviewing McHenry County Republican Party Chairman Mike Tryon at the bottom of the article. His show, “Muster America,” airs on Comcast on its public access channel.
