The street department has been out looking for storm sewer catch basins to drain the excess water from the streets. However, in 1910, or there¬ abouts, when the storm sewers were installed, no map was made to show their location. This year, with the large a- mounl of ice, the street depart¬ ment is having some difficulty finding some of the catch basins. Therefore tho street department is asking your co-operation to help them find these hidden catch bas¬ ins. If there is a catch basin near your house which has not been cleared which you know tho loca¬ tion of, please call the Village Hall 669-2341 or Mayor Brill at Heine¬ mann Hardware, 669-3201. There has also been some com¬ ment that the slush has nol been plowed off of some of the streets. Morris Kiefer street man says that tho reason for this is that the Vil¬ lage plow is not heavy enough to get down to the bare pavement to remove this slush, and that before the slush can be removed, the storm sewer must be opened or else a flooding situation will exist. % of Vehicle Tax StUl Due Chief Kenneth Fay of the Hunt¬ ley police department announced today that approximately throe fourths of the p€K)plc in Huntley havc not paid their vehicle tax lo date. Starting March 1, Chief Fay and the other members of the Huntley ix>lice department will ticket cars which do not have the vehicle stickers on them. The money collected from these taxes is used lo maintain the streets and sidewalks of Huntley and nothing else. The police department asks for your cooperation in paying this tax. Vehicle stickers are $3 per -passenger car and $5 per truck. Each car or truck registered with¬ in the limit of Huntley is required to have a Hunlley vehicle license.

Heart Sunday Elsie Jordi, Heart Chairman February 25, is Heart Sunday in every community, including our own town and rural district . A house to house canvas was made on this day last year in our town by a group of heart minded citi¬ zens. This proved very successful but for the rural district a letter was sent lo every family for a con¬ tribution which did nol reach the expectation of the heart commit¬ tee. This year the committee hopes to have volunteers for a farm to farm canvas as we all know no one is exempted from this heart disease. Who or where it will strike no one knows. As of today McHenry County had the largest per centage in heart fatalities last year. So we the heart committee are sincerely hoping that anyone who is interested and willing to help this great cause will call any member of tho American Legion Auxiliary and will proudly say, "I want to help." Don't forget Heart Sunday, Feb. 25. Be ready for the Heart Fund Volunteer. Dowd Dinner Two sheriffs and two former sheriffs paid tribute last night to Chief Deputy Ed Dowd of McHen¬ ry County Sheriffs office at a tes¬ timonial dinner financed by Dowd's friends and attended by almost 500 people. The two sheriffs speaking in be¬ half of Dowd, who is a resident of Crystal Lake, were Sheriff Mel¬ vin Griebel of McHenry County and Sheriff Norris Froehlich of Lake County. Griebel said that he had never regretted his appoint¬ ment of Dowd as chief deputy and he commented that 'working one's way up is an American tradition and Dowd has done this. He has worked under three sheriffs in Mc¬ Henry county and has served in every capacity." Griebel added that there are many details to the sheriff's office besides law enforce¬ ment, including the serving of pa¬ pers, providing court bailiffs, and acting as custodian for the two buildings that make up the court¬ house offices. He said that Dowd has his whole-hearted support for the sheriff's ofice. The ex-sheriffs who spoke in praise of Dowd were Henry (Hick) Nulle of Green Lake, Wis., and Harry Herendeen of Crystal Lake, county treasurer. Dowd began his pKjlice career under Nulle and served all four years for Herendeen when Griebel was chief deputy. Nulle called Dowd "a Mr. Ed who has worked like a horse." And Herendeen described Dowd as a "policeman's policeman." Master of ceremonies for the tes¬ timonial dinner was Soortscaster Jack Brickhouse of Chicago. CrjiB- lal Lake's mayor, Louis Goosms, commented on the cooperation the city had received from Dowd. Among those present were Coun¬ ty Judge James Cooney, County Clerk Vernon Kays, County Cor¬ oner Theron Ehorn, County Super¬ intendent of Schools Richard Taze¬ well, County Superintendent of Highways Wayne Mentzer, Justices of the Peace Joe Ritter of Wood¬ stock and Jere Dodge of Algon¬ quin, and an entire delegation from Lake county.
