  1. Cal, you’d be a perfect appointment for SSGC, big $$$$$ handling big $$$$$. 🙂

  2. I think this story falls under the “too many governments” heading.

    A Tuberculosis Board?


    They must be doing a GREAT job, because I haven’t read about a case of tuberculosis around here in years.

    Hell, we should create a Cancer Board, an AIDS board, and even a Common Cold Board. If boards are that effective, we could wipe out disease in McHenry County!

    The big problem is that boards tend to be dominated by people who have a vested interest, emotional or financial, in the subject.

    A prime example is MCCD, which is stocked with people who think it is their job to protect and expand the bureaucracy — as opposed to taxpayer watchdogs deciding if we have enough parks and if the bureaucracy is doing a good job.

    Don’t get me wrong — some of the boards are probably beneficial.

    But some of them could just as easily be replaced by a button and the button lost, and the rest need to have their members replaced with taxpayer watchdogs.

  3. Guess I’m old enough, too, but I’d bet the County Board doesn’t discriminate on the basis of age.

  4. Old people rule, kind of a shame younger people don’t get involved sooner in life.

  5. Steve Wilson, you obviously didn’t read Cal’s post on the recent extensively drug resistant TB case right here in good ‘Ol McHenry County.
