I was pretty surprised to see a reporter from the Daily Herald covering the Special McHenry County Board meeting on Thursday.
Not since Chuck Keeshan became an editor have I seen someone from the paper that prints the Northwest Herald.
The headline of Lauren Rohr’s article is
McHenry chairman’s hiring, lease decisions lacked transparency
The subhead is
Members of the McHenry County Board criticized Chairman Jack Franks and staff members Thursday, saying they should’ve been more transparent in issues related to staff hirings and the Valley Hi Nursing Home.
The article is two-sided.
Board Members: McHenry Chairman’s Hiring, Lease Decision Lacked Transparency
September 14, 2017

“Board member Yvonne Barnes of Cary said the hirings didn’t follow county protocol – an issue many board members have been trying to address for months.
From the beginning, she said, a proposal to create the new positions should have been brought before the appropriate committees and then the full board.
‘There’s no reason not to follow the proper procedures,’ Barnes said.”
