One reader's comment: "Sad"
The mail today?
Keith Nygren's August 17, 2011 Memorandum to "All Personnel". And the reader's comment? "Sad" (Click on the letter to enlarge it; then click on the Back button on your browser to come back here.)
The Memo read, "Effective immediately, Scott Milliman is no longer an employee with the McHenry County Sheriff's Office Patrol Division. He is not allowed access to any part of this facility not accessible by the public and must be escorted to retrieve any personal items."
"Signed Keith Nygren, Sheriff"
And he must have been in town on Wednesday, because that signature sure looks like his.
Who got copies?
Andrew Zinke, Undersheriff
Commander John Miller
EEO Kathy Seith
Attorney John Kelly
Deputy Cypher, Quartermaster
Has no one told him that "EEO" is not a title, likc Undersheriff or Deputy? Nobody is going to walk up to Kathy and address her as "EEO Seith". How stupid!
And why is the sheriff copying Attorney John Kelly? Is he going to throw more taxpayer dollars away on legal work at an outside law firm? It's an HR matter, Keith. For that you use your in-house attorney. In case you have forgotten, that's Lou Bianchi. Just call Donna Kelley. You must have the number.
And "Quartermaster"? What's that? Don't you have a secretary to do your filing?
Oh, and your Merit Commission? Since the August 10th Merit Commission meeting was canceled, Keith, when did you get the MC's approval to fire Scott? It couldn't have been at the July 13th meeting; that one was canceled, too. Maybe it was at the June 8th meeting. No, that one was canceled, too.
Have the Northern Lights been too bright in Minocqua this year?
