Apr 3, 2006: V. of Round Lake admits in Executive Minutes a court may rule the village did not have jurisdictional authority to adopt any special regulations against Wooster. Admitted by the Village officials is the village did not provide prior notification to the lake's legal owners. A court never rules on the ordinance, however, as IL legislators get the law suit dropped in 2008 to make way for clarification bill HB3441.
Mar 7, 2007: Health Department Directors Mark Pfister and Michael Adam prove themselves liars, claimingthey prefer homeowners resolve differences on Wooster Lake. The truth is they prioritized reinforcing fraud via a new ordinance while derailing a homeowners compromise in 2005.
Jun 3, 2008: Attorney author of HB3441 writes to Gov. Blagojevich how "a Lake County Board Member and a Republican ally" are abusing powers of local gov't against private lakes and explains the mere clarifying nature of HB3441. (Bonnie Carter is the referenced Lake Co Official)

Sep 30, 2009: Attorney author of HB3441 writes to Round Lake informing their 2005 ordinance against Wooster has always been a sham and was never legal. He advises "The simplest way to deal with an ordinance which was a mistake is to repeal the ordinance."
ClausenMiller cites unlawful ordinance causing vigilante behavior on Wooster.pdf Senator Cullerton's Office later reconfirms HB3441 was a
"minor clarification issue" and "was not written to infringe on the (existing) jurisdiction of municipalities..."
Nov 14, 2005: An attorney opines in a letter that the RL ordinance solicited by Lake Co Board Member Bonnie Carter is "invalid" , highlighting lack of jurisdiction and lack of prior notification, a blatant violation of due process and the 14th Am. of the US Constitution.
Apr '14 - Apr '15: Grant Township Assessor's Office first assesses Wooster Lake properties as restricted, thenflip flops its assessment, changing that Office's status of the lake properties from restricted to now "no restrictions". The Lake County State's Attorney confirms the GTA Office is usurping
its power and does not have the legal authority to override the recorded titles, declarations, ordinance, etc. filed at the Lake County Recorder's Office. The GTA Office is only expanding the issue by not obtaining the necessary declaratory judgment from a judge.
February 2012: Owners of Wooster confront Fox Lake Mayor Ed Bender's 2001 vote on behalf of Fox Lake ordinance 2001-52 (while a village Trustee).

2001-52 over a decade earlier.)"
