MCSD - good management in final days?

Is it true that both the Sheriff and the Undersheriff of the McHenry County Sheriff's Department are on vacation at the same time?

Rumor has it that Nygren is playing in Florida and Zinke is in Springfield, Mo. True?

If it is true, who is running the ship (into the rocks) in McHenry County?

It is believed that Nygren has taken many extended vacations during his final term in office, which began December 1, 2010. His reign ends November 30, 2014. It would be fascinating to know how many days he has been at work since December 1, 2010, and how many days he has not been at work. What have the taxpayers gotten for their $150,000/year? Not much.

Nygren, as the elected Sheriff, is still responsible for the proper running of the Department. When he is gone and allows his Undersheriff to leave on vacation at the same time, that is a terrible management decision.

Is there anyone else at MCSD who is trained to run the Department and make decisions affecting the Department  and the County of McHenry?

If Zinke were acting responsibly as Undersheriff, he would not leave town when Sheriff Nygren is gone. Who approved his vacation time? Did Nygren sign off on Zinke's vacation request? Did Zinke sign his own vacation request?

With a lame duck and an election loser in the Number 1 and 2 spots at MCSD, is it any wonder that decisions of this type are making made? Like, who cares?

Should the County Board declare the Office of Sheriff abandoned and vacant? And cut off Nygren's pay for the next six months?
