The address, which will be delivered at next Tuesday evening’s board meeting, is unique in that Chairman Buehler is not waiting until his first full year in office to deliver it, given the urgency of the ongoing pandemic emergency.

Also, for the first time, the Chairman’s speech will be delivered in a multimedia video format to enhance the presentation.

Chairman Buehler’s address, which will last about 18 minutes, will take place shortly after the start of the County Board’s monthly voting meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. April 20 at the County Administration Building, 667 Ware Road, Woodstock.

Besides being streamed live with the meeting itself on the county Meeting Portal at www.mchenrycountyil.gov, it will also be posted to county government’s Facebook and YouTube pages.

  1. There is no urgent “pandemic emergency”.

    Ignore Lord Jumbo Boy and fully open McHenry County for business and schools
    without masks and social distancing, and do it NOW.

    It’s past time to move on from the Fascist Il Duce Fauchi Fiasco.

  2. Kinzinger’s bait and switch:

    I want to help my district.

    I want to bring sanity back.

    I’m not interested in senator or governor.

    Well maybe I am

  3. On this date in history–

    In 1774 and the spring of 1775 Paul Revere was employed by the Boston Committee of Correspondence and the Massachusetts Committee of Safety as an express rider to carry news, messages, and copies of important documents as far away as New York and Philadelphia.

    On the evening of April 18, 1775, Paul Revere was summoned by Dr. Joseph Warren of Boston and given the task of riding to Lexington, Massachusetts, with the news that regular troops were about to march into the countryside northwest of Boston. According to Warren, these troops planned to arrest Samuel Adams and John Hancock, who were staying at a house in Lexington, and probably continue on to the town of Concord, to capture or destroy military stores — gunpowder, ammunition, and several cannon — that had been stockpiled there (in fact, the British troops had no orders to arrest anyone — Dr. Warren’s intelligence on this point was faulty). Revere contacted an unidentified friend (probably Robert Newman, the sexton of Christ Church in Boston’s North End) and instructed him to show two lanterns in the tower of Christ Church (now called the Old North Church) as a signal in case Revere was unable to leave town. The two lanterns meant that the British troops planned to row “by sea” across the Charles River to Cambridge, rather than march “by land” out Boston Neck.

    Revere then stopped by his own house to pick up his boots and overcoat, and proceeded the short distance to Boston’s North End waterfront where two friends waited to row him across the river to Charlestown. Slipping past a British warship in the darkness, Revere landed safely. After informing Colonel Conant and other local Sons of Liberty about recent events in Boston and verifying that they had seen his signals in the North Church tower, Revere borrowed a horse from John Larkin, a Charlestown merchant and a patriot sympathizer. While the horse was being made ready, a member of the Committee of Safety named Richard Devens warned Revere that there were a number of British officers in the area who might try to intercept him. About eleven o’clock Revere set off. After narrowly avoiding capture just outside of Charlestown, Revere changed his planned route and rode through Medford, where he alarmed Isaac Hall, the captain of the local militia. He then alarmed almost all the houses from Medford, through Menotomy (today’s Arlington) — carefully avoiding the Royall Mansion whose property he rode through (Isaac Royall was a well-known Loyalist) — and arrived in Lexington sometime after midnight.

    In Lexington, as he approached the house where Adams and Hancock were staying, a Sergeant Monroe, acting as a guard outside the house, requested that he not make so much noise. “Noise!” cried Revere, “You’ll have noise enough before long. The regulars are coming out!” At this point, Revere still had difficulty gaining entry until, according to tradition, John Hancock, who was still awake, heard his voice and said “Come in, Revere! We’re not afraid of you” and he was allowed to enter the house and deliver his message.

    About half past twelve, William Dawes arrived in Lexington carrying the same message as Revere. After both men had “refreshed themselves” (gotten something to eat and drink) they decided to continue on to Concord, Massachusetts to verify that the military stores had been properly dispersed and hidden away. A short distance outside of Lexington, they were over-taken by Dr. Samuel Prescott, who they determined was a fellow “high Son of Liberty.” A short time later, a British patrol intercepted all three men. Prescott and Dawes escaped; Revere was held for some time, questioned, and let go. Before he was released, however, his horse was confiscated to replace the tired mount of a British sergeant. Left alone on the road, Revere returned to Lexington on foot in time to witness the latter part of the battle on Lexington Green.

  4. Mike Buehler a McHenry County Board Chairman who actually demonstrates professionalism and has integrity.

  5. Yes, when is Buehler going to do something above Prim?

    About the County Health Dept?

    About Tirio breaking the law regularly and screwing up elections?

    About Acosta still stinking up the County Board?

    About why McHenry Co. Is the highest property taxes county in IL?

    About why Pam Althoff is masquerading as a Republican?

    About reversing Franks’ many absurdities in County Administration.?

  6. Mike is a great guy.

    He has inherited a mess.

    The Health Department has done a horrible job with the covid vaccine rollout.

    First, they prioritized Teachers, many were not even in schools, over Seniors with serious health conditions.

    Then they denied vaccines to around 100 citizens who used fake codes..

    So what?

    these citizens own the vaccine NOT the health department.

    When did these non front line administration employees get vaccinated?

    Why don’t we know these answers?

    I still have not been contacted for a vaccine although I signed up in January.

    Thank goodness we got vaccinated in February.

    This health department stinks.

    They need to be replaced.

    But Mike has a lot of work on his plate.

  7. Duncan, I agree with most of your points.

    Buehler inherited a catastrophe.

    Prim’s pick for Sheriff is mind boggling, until you know what happened out of public view.

  8. No matter how much you try to twist it, JPMatthews, Duncan Hines is and always will be a fruitcake.

    Rest assured, if D Hines isn’t using a dictionary, someone is writing their script!

  9. DALA, I guess I’m a fruitcake, too, because I agree with Hines on most of his points.

    When will Buehler do something except take a day off?

  10. DALA, put the crack pike down.

    Buehler is a good man, but he can’t stay silent in the wake of so much madness.

    He should focus on on the criminal misconduct of The County Board of Health.

    And he needs to do that NOW!
