Hey what do we know about DeKalb County?

Is the board run by NIU People?

Who here is from DeKalb county as well?

I'm not from there, but have worked on this a little. The first contact I made was early in April of 2008 with an email to Chairman Ruth Anne Tobias, who also works at NIU where they shooting took place. The last contact was a similar email to all board members on April 24. I didn't get replies from any of them, despite being very sensitive to the NIU shooting event. I think it is going to take some in-person efforts.

Here is the link to their website: http://www.dekalbcou...unty_board.html

Sorry this isn't more helpful.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property, and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means." -- Thomas Jefferson to John Colvin, 1810.

I notice that SCCC has an organization at NIU.

Should I try contacting the spokesman there? Or would someone up that way do so?
