  1. Not government sponsored testing but it sure sounds like government efficiency. https://www.lakemchenryscanner.com/2022/01/21/illinois-attorney-general-says-centers-for-testing-control-to-be-shut-down-for-foreseeable-future/?fbclid=IwAR1FL733SwM798hbjg6zJATpOwPxXfoopMiyRIn9l_v1lztbrSAaJyWtyEM “The results, as one former employee described, were chaos, with received samples being stuffed into trash bags strewn across the office floor. Former employees recounted finding samples in bags that were well over 48 hours old, being instructed by management to falsify dates of receipt, and being instructed to lie to consumers about their tests being inconclusive or negative when, in fact, the sample had not been tested,” Ellison added.
  2. Our plan is to move out of Illinois to either Wyoming or Utah when my husband retires from his job (5 years). IF he could find a job out there now we would move immediately although we would have to kidnap my 94 year old mother as she is quite comfortable in her own home with her familiar surroundings. Thinking about buying land (at least 5 acres) now to build on later. Nephew and his girlfriend are moving to a new house in Tennessee this month. She convinced him that TN is a whole lot better/cheaper place to live than Illinois. Both were able to get transfers from their current jobs so it was an easy move. However, I had to give them the "How to vote to preserve it" lecture. Hopefully they heed it.
  3. In the comments section of Lake & McHenry County Scanner Facebook page some said it was a bully breed but don't know if that is true or not. Pretty impressed that almost all comments support the CCL holder.
  4. Don't recall reading about this back in April: https://www.lakemchenryscanner.com/2021/09/21/no-charges-to-be-filed-after-dog-fatally-shot-by-horse-rider-on-trail-in-libertyville/
  5. Just to clarify dogs can be trained to alert on any odor. So yes, they can be trained to alert to guns (gunpowder or even Hoppe's #9). A dog's reward for finding/alerting to the odor is a toy, food or praise. NOT addiction to the drug. Have been in the industry for several decades and this was the procedure even in the "olden days".
  6. Either you are being facetious or you are ignorant on the way that dogs are trained to alert to odors.
  7. Just renewed mine & my husbands Sunday morning (5/2). Miraculously I was able to do both of them with no problems. Laptop using Firefox.
