Qs for Crime Stoppers for McHenry County

Some questions continue to remain answered by Crime Stoppers of McHenry County, and they aren't going away.

How did you spend the $50,000 you received from the McHenry County Circuit Court over the past 3+ years? Other than the $3,400 paid out for tips in 2009, what did you do with the rest of the money?

Other than this $50,000, how much did you receive from donations and other sources?

Other than Helen Torscher, who won't answer letters or email, and Richard Heizer, who has yet to return my telephone call of March 4, who are the other Board members?
Why does CrimeStoppers USA believe you are a 501(c)(3) organization, which is required for membership in CrimeStoppers USA, but IRS doesn't know of you?

Why aren't you registered with the Charitable Trust Bureau (CTB) of the Illinois Attorney General's office? Isn't this required for any organization that receives donations? (Hint: the CTB says registration is required.)
