Not since a McHenry County Board Chairman tried to change County Board Rules to banish photographers to the back of the room have restrictions been evident.
That was in April, 2007, an initiative of County Board Chairman Ken Koehler.
Yesterday, entering the Board room, one could see a sign on the far wall saying, “Camera. This area only.”
Guess it must be some effort by Democrat Jack Franks to limit photographs of his face from the front.
On the floor was duct tape outline about a six foot square along the wall.
I note that the Northwest Herald photographer Rick Bamman ignored the sign.
None of the photos in the online story were taken from the newly-designated area.
