Sad tale of history

To the Editor:

Why would the McHenry County Conservation District Board spend any money on history?

Every aspect of life, in this administration, is destroying our history and doing their best to obliterate our history in America.

It is a very sad tale. The majority of young people cannot answer one simple question about America’s history. What is worse? They don’t care and have no interest in learning. They only want to know where their next given pleasure is waiting for them for free.

Charging an extra dollar? The board would not hesitate to charge $10 if it was for political gain, but for history? They simply do not care.

They would pull their employees for themselves, but not the community.
