In my opinion

We are just back from London and I want to tell you about Oxford (been on my dream list for years to visit Oxford University!); Windsor Castle (the Queen was there!); Stonehenge (still a mystery!); our hotel; the BAFTA Awards; every tourist site we got to see or didn’t get to see; Princess Di’s dresses; tourist buses; the tube; the pubs; everything. But I am tired. My brain is foggier than the London mists. I always thought it was a myth what people say about the recirculated air on long flights, but as we sat on that plane, I felt my throat

Brits’ version of English is far different than ours

grow scratchy and my body start to ache. I rarely get sick or catch a cold, but here I am, feeling quite germ-infested. I will never again raise my eyebrows at those who wear surgical masks while traveling. So instead of chatting you up and spreading any sniffles, let me just say we had a brilliant time, and that rumor is true: The Brits say the word BRILLIANT a lot. Before I snuggle under the covers and take a nap, let me share with you some other common British lingo. Lurgy: sick or under the weather.



Made Redundant: to be fired or let go from one’s position. “Bugger off!”: “Go away!” or “Leave me alone!” Minted: to be extremely rich. Cheeky: to be not respectful of something, having a flippant or facetious attitude.

Knackered: phrase meaning “extremely tired,” often uttered after a long, exhausting day; also see: “zonked.” Chin Wag: to have a chat with someone. Off One’s Trolley: mad, out of one’s mind. Pavement Pizza: euphemism for puke or vomit. Barmy: crazy, insane; always derogatory. Collywobbles: extreme queasiness or stomach pain brought on by stress, nervousness or anxiety. Bits ‘n Bobs: various things. (Example: “My mother has a lot of

Bits ‘n Bobs around the house.”) Starkers: completely naked.

Winter Olympics – big thrills and big air The Winter Olympics are waning. Competition officially ends Feb. 25. Sigh. It’s been a good (sleigh) ride. If you’re like me, the Winter Games provide opportunities to develop an interest in and become an expert on sports not typically televised during prime time. Let’s start with curling, which as far as I can decipher has nothing to do with anything curly, especially hair. It involves large round granite disks – called stones – that slide across the ice toward a target. It’s sort of a cross between bowling and shuffleboard, but with brooms and on ice. I’ve watched some curling matches (are they called matches?) and still don’t understand the intricacies of the game. I have been intrigued and drawn in by the propensity of players to yell unique – and dare I say odd – phrases during the course of the “slideshow.” I’m not sure if they are shouting at each other, their opponents or the stones. Either way, their

outcries are entertaining not to mention loud. A sport with a name like skeleton has to be dangerous. And it is. Skeleton racing involves plummeting headfirst down a steep and treacherous ribbon of polished ice on a tiny sled at speeds over 80 miles per hour. Racers do wear cool looking helmets, so there’s some amount of comfort in that. Equally thrilling, the luge is like the skeleton except backwards. Riders hurl themselves down a slippery ice track, feet first and face up, one or two persons to a sled. The twoperson model requires one racer to lie atop the other in a decidedly awkward pile-up of muscles and spandex. Awkwardness aside, it still looks dangerous. I think I’d take a pass – better make that a double pass for doubles luge (which is only available for men at this point anyway). Bobsleighing (the official Olympic term) has one, two and four-person

events. The one-person race is known as the monobob, which like curling has nothing to do with hair. Bob sledders ride down a winding, narrow and icy track in brightly colored go-karts powered by gravity on steroids (the sleds, not athletes). The ride looks to be kidney jarring in an extreme way. But hey, if the outcome is a gold medal maybe a little trauma to your internal organs is the price you pay. New this year, big air is exactly as its name implies. Athletes fly down a ski ramp that curls at the end and shoots snowboarders into the sky to heights formerly known only to people wearing parachutes. Is big air dan-

gerous? Do snowboarders fly? The Winter Olympics hosts a total of 15 sports and is basically a junior version of the Summer Games, which boast an impressive 42. This is further compounded by the fact that just one summer category, called “athletics” is comprised of 47 different track and field events and could practically qualify as an Olympics on its own. To increase the fairness quotient, especially for those of us suffering living in colder climates, I propose adding new Winter Olympic sports, with events potentially even more dangerous and exhilarating than skeleton or big air. Notoriously perilous and known for its edge-of-your-seat hysteria, ice fishing is a prevalent reality for many cold-climate folks. Ice fisher-people have actually been angling for years to get their chance at Olympic gold. If this occurs, fisher-athletes would be required to test clean for various drugs and steroids. Thankfully, beer

would not be on the list of banned substances. Other sports that might be medalworthy include passing a snowplow on black ice during a snowstorm at rush hour, pushing a full shopping cart through four inches of newly fallen snow across the official Olympic parking lot, snow shoveling the front steps with a non-motorized metal shovel while wearing choppers and finally, the most obvious, Zamboni speed driving. The Winter Olympics are great as is, but they could be even better with increased competitive options. And more medals, duh. I’m sure we can come up with even more superextreme sporty ideas. We’ve got four years to think about it. Jill Pertler is an award-winning syndicated columnist, published playwright, author and member of the National Society of Newspaper Columnists.

It sure felt good to feel the temps get above freezing this past week. There’s nothing quite like feeling the sun as its rays pour down on the frozen earth bringing the melting of the ice and snow. It also feels great just sitting in my recliner by the picture window looking out at the two large oak trees that sit on each side of the start of our driveway. While I am soaking up the warmth of the sun on the inside, the slow climb above freezing outside is having a nice effect on the piles of snow that have accumulated. It just feels good to know that spring isn’t far off. I rediscovered another real pick me up for the soul as well this past week. Since winter has been rather long for me this year, I found that in order to keep from becoming too depressed about working out in the cold every day, I just sing my favorite hymns as I’m scraping the barn and working with my cows. Last night I sang such great songs as these; Trust and Obey, His Eye is On the Sparrow, Great is Thy Faithfulness, In the Garden, Softly and Tenderly, When the Role is Called up Yonder, and a few others. They were so uplifting to my soul and the Lord just boosted my spirit right up to heaven’s gate. I couldn’t help but think of the



story in the book of Acts chapter 16. Paul and Silas were sharing the good news of salvation in Jesus to the crowds, and instead of accepting the message, the crowds became infuriated and beat them rods and threw them in jail. I’ll pick up the story at verse 25. 25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them, 26  and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken. And immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s bonds were unfastened. 27  When the jailer woke and saw that the prison doors were open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself, supposing that the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, “Do not harm yourself, for we are all here.” 29  And the jailer called for lights and rushed in, and trembling with fear he fell down before Paul and

Silas. 30 Then he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” 31  And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.” There certainly is power in singing and praising our great God, especially when you are struggling when the pressures of life. One of the songs I sang last night when I was working is about how God even looks after the sparrow. Because He cares for a tiny bird, how much more is He watching over me as well. It goes like this; Why should I feel discouraged? Why should the shadows come? Why should my heart feel lonely and long for heaven and home? When Jesus is my portion, my constant friend is He. His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me. And then the chorus goes like this; I sing because I’m happy. I sing because I’m free, for His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me. There is power in these simple words and what a great pick-meup for the soul. Until next week, stay close to Jesus my friend. His presence in your heart is the only thing that matters in the long run. Remember He wants to be your all in all. God bless.

Sign up now to be a St. Baldrick’s Shavee at McHenry West HS McHenry West High School will host the 10th annual St. Baldrick’s Community Shave on Thursday, March 22, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the school. Please consider becoming a “Shavee” this year, or come out that night to show support for the new “Shavees” and returning “Shavees.” All money raised by the “Shavees” goes to support the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which helps fund pediatric cancer research. The money raised through sales of our local t-shirt, and through the many activities put on by our students and the community in the weeks leading up to the event, go to our local families who are dealing with the financial burdens of fighting cancer. This year’s theme is “A Decade of Difference.” The inspiration for this year’s theme, and the artwork for our local t-shirts, represents our 10 years of coming together as a community in the fight against childhood cancer. It is truly a celebration of who we are in McHenry.

In the weeks leading up to the Community Shave, MCHS students, and the community, will be promoting many fundraising events. Please join us in our attempt to reach our goal of raising $140,000 this year for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, and to beat last year’s $25,000 raised for our local families. In the past nine years, we have surpassed $1.3 million dollars. Let’s keep it going. All of these proceeds make an enormous impact locally and nationally. Without the support of so many people in our community, St. Baldrick’s in McHenry would not be what it is today. Thank you for your continuing support. Please check out our St. Baldrick’s web site at There will be links to all our events, and information and links for purchasing this year’s t-shirts online. You will also find general information about the St Baldrick’s Foundation and the process for becoming a “Shavee.”

ence (DUI) charge when he was converted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) authorities to an inmate held on their authority under a contract between McHenry County and ICE. KRV Legal Inc., a law firm, filed the complaint alleging that Martinez’s continued incarceration was unlawful. Last week, pending criminal charges against Martinez were stricken with leave to reinstate by the State’s Attorney’s Office.  Martinez is currently in ICE custody at another facility and, as a Mexican national in this country illegally, is awaiting the outcome of deportation proceedings.  The controversy began with the Illinois General Assembly passing and Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner signing the Illinois Trust Act (P.A. 100-0463), which went into force and effect on Aug. 28, 2017.  Niceforo MacedoHernandez, a Mexican national, had been held in the Jail since Aug. 9 on domestic battery charges arising from an incident at his home in Crystal Lake. Several days after the Trust Act

went into effect, and claiming that the Sheriff’s Office was continuing to hold Macedo-Hernandez on an immigration detainer in violation of the Act, KRV Legal filed a series of motions which in time came to embrace other defendants alleged to be in the same situation, some named and others unnamed, as part of a class action. That class action was voluntarily dismissed by the plaintiffs on Nov. 7. “I restate now what I have said for the last six months, namely that throughout this we have followed the law, with public safety being our first and foremost consideration,” said Sheriff Bill Prim.  “I am confident this issue is now behind us, and that public safety has at no time been compromised. “I also commend the State’s Attorney and his staff for an outstanding job,” Prim added.  Wednesday’s ruling bring to a close six months of legal proceedings in McHenry County Circuit Court attended by a flurry of emergency motions, defense counter-motions and significant media attention.
