Message of the Day – A Jar Opener

It’s time to get back to my “Message of the Day” feature. Switching back and forth on computers—NEVER, EVER buy a Hewlett-Packard computer—has made accessing photos difficult to impossible.

At any rate, take a look at the jar opener I found in Crystal Lake.

It’s a campaign gimmick for Veronica Armstrong, who is running in the Republican primary for McHenry County Board in District 3. That’s the one north of Crystal Lake Avenue in Crystal Lake that goes into the southern part of McHenry.

The message on the hand-shaped rubberized friction increaser is provocative.

It says,

County Board District 3

Get a grip on your future.
Get rid of the screw offs.

The only incumbent running in District 3 is Barbara Wheeler. (Ed Dvorak is retiring.)

Wheeler was a leader in the successful fight to ban video poker (really slot machines) in unincorporated McHenry County. She also ran unsuccessfully against District 2’s Ken Koehler—also up for re-election—for county board chairman. The punishment was not being named a committeeman.

So, are the “barbs” on the jar opener aimed at Barbara or the county board in general?
