SERVING THE PEOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1060 ^)^t Jluntlep jfarmsJitre HUNTLEY, ILLINOIS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1992 - VOLUME 32, NUMBER 29 USPS 580-360 This scary cast of characters terrified the town on Halloween weekend. Jaycees Terrify IHuntley With Halioween Haunted House By Joyce Liput The Huntley Jaycees engaged in incredibly complicated preparations just to terrify the people of Huntley. Together with the Huntley Park District, the Huntley Jaycees spent the week before Halloween turning Deicke Recreation Center's basement into a maze of frightful turns, tunnels and passages. "Monsters" of all descriptions began to gather for final preparations two hours before the "guests" arrived. Final instructions, flashlights and fire-extinguishers were issued as further safety precautions. Just getting to the door could be unnerving, as patrons had the opportunity to slide their hands into bowls of brains, guts and eyeballs to get in the mood. With the screams of those going before echoing from within, they proceeded down the stairs, a delightful look of anticipated fear on their faces. Bubbling cauldrons, a roaring chain saw, coffins (complete with dead flower arrangement by Huntley Floral) filled the halls of horror, not to mention "Freddy Krueger," "Frankenstein," vampires, ghouls, witches, and monsters of alt kinds. Some took fright just listening to the horror from within, or seeing those who came out, and refused to go on. Some fell victim to the first face-to-face encounters and came back out the entrance. Sometimes a monster would provide a flashlighted escort for the daringly fearful. Or, they might go through ahead to warn everyone to take it easy on the little kids. Older kids tried to be "cool" while pushing each other forward saying, "You go first!" They would exit trying to maintain that look of cool with flushed cheeks and fear in their eyes. Then they would show up later to go through it all again. The overall comments made it clear, "It was really scary!" Jaycees and their helpers on Friday night included Mark Mercer, Mark Puffer, Bill Benton, Becki Schmalbeck, Paula Kohley, Laura Kohley, Joanna Pace, Laura Pace, Chad Tarnow, Peter Liput, Kevin Lessner, Kelly Kentgen, Patty Bearup, Chris Heckt, Emily Lombard, Chris Scholer, Scott Napperman, Cindy McDonald, Angela Webb, Cape Haselgren, Janis Mesick, and more who joined them on Saturday night.
