SEPTEMBER 12, 1968 PHONE: .669-6621 (any tfane) (U no anawer) 48»-0»»8 HUNTLEY c!%- SCHOOL FILE HUNTLEY niQU HUNTLEY, ILL SCHOOL 10 PAGES NAILED AND OtSTBIBUTBD H'KBKLy 7 aaaee a «•»• Village Board , Meeting The Huntley Village Board met in regular session on Thursday ev¬ ening, Sept. 5. at the Village Hall with all members present. Following the preliminary busi¬ ness (readng of minutes.- approval of bills) the board approved this year's tax levy. This levy may be examined at village clerk Richard Enstrom's office. Mr. Percy Swanson, superintend¬ ent of streets, was present at the meeting and offered two samples of Huntley water in quart jars. One sample had been taken direct¬ ly from the tap and the second sample had been treated with a chemical. The second sample was clear, whereas the one taken direct¬ ly from the tap was clouded. Mr. Swanson stated "you could see the difference." He said that at the present time 30 pounds per day of chemical (which looks like salt) is added to the water. The chemical costs $30 per cwt. Mr. Swanson stated that he obtained the chemical frx«n the City of Har¬ vard, which is now using another chemical in their water. Harvard had a ton of this chemical on hand, which they said they did not want, so Mr. Swanson loaded it onto a truck and brought it to HunUey. —- lie board next discussed the ex¬ tension of Mill Street. It was re¬ ported that the school board and tho park board have not yet dedicat¬ ed the land for the proposed ex¬ tension from Route 47 to Lincoln Street to the village. Until this land has been dedicated, the vil¬ lage cannot consider extending the water or sewer lines to the school on this property. The discussion stemmed from a report that the school was receiving clouded water. At the present time the school is at the end of a water line. — The board then took up the main topic, a discussion of the proposed improvements to the sewer and water departments. On Saturday. Oct. 5, the village will be asked lo approve the conditkm of a ter¬ tiary pond at the sewage disposal plant. This pond will cost $63,000, and is being required by the State of Illinois. A separate and second proposal will ask the voters to ap¬ prove of $U8,CCC, to construct a well, pump house, pump and wator tower. The judges of the election will be Enwna Ackman, Ella Carroll, Margaret Dwyer. Norma Garlieb and Ruth Kahl. The motion for the proposed im¬ provements was made by Jamos O'Connor, seconded by Leonard Ackman, and carried unanimously. Mr. Marvin Birchfield, consultmg engineer for the village, stated that lhe improvements will cost the tax¬ payers an additional 18c per $1C0 valuation, meaning that a person with a $10,C<!0 home would be as- sessed $18 more per year, or $1.50 per month. Mr. L«roy Anderson was present at the meeting and asked the vil¬ lage board if he could construct a colonial type duplex house on his property adjacent to his home on Cindy Jo Ave. Mr. Anderson was told that under the t>resent zoning code he could construct such a dwelling. It was reported at the meeting that cars are being parked on the tree bank on the north skie of Mul¬ len Street. This property has been posted with "no parkhig" signs, al¬ though il is blacktopped to permit access to Union ^lecial Madiine Company's parking lot.

Barn Destroyed Sunday By Fire Huntley firemen responded to a <n\l from Clanyard Farm No. 3 at 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sent R At he farm they discovered t'le bam hid been struck by 'i"-htninc an-1 '"as burning vie-nrously. TTie ef¬ forts of firemen t-i control the blaae were hampered by a hieh line wire which ran directly over the b?m and t'nere was some fear that it would break. At 2 a.m. the Commonwealth El- ison Co. workmen came and dis¬ connected the line, disrupting elec¬ trical service west of the fire. The firemen stayed on the scene until 5:30 in the morning. They were able to save the milk house. This fire was unusual due to the fact that the fire siren was sound¬ ed. It is the practice of the 'fire department not to sound the siren at night but rely on mechan¬ ical devices which are installed in the homes of many of the firemen to alert them. Some at athese de¬ vices were not working the night of the fire and not enough men re- ponded to the call, thus the fire siren was blown. It was reported thftt the dairy aninult ytei^ leemeA to Um Wm. WOUnu fai^. Mn Iikf Ura. Thom¬ as Ziller are the tenant operators of aanyard Farm No. 3. which is owned by Wm. McCredie of Elgin. il 1st PTA Meeting The Huntley P.T.A. will hold iheis first meeting of the school year at the Huntley.school at 8:00 P.M. on Wednesday, September 18 The meeting will be a "get aeqaan- ted" evening with the teachers.

The school year began on August r6 thw year, but for a select group of boys, school means only one 'hing — football. Eight returning lettermen greeted new coach Jack McDonald at the first practice: John Bastian, Barry Borchart, Dave Bjom, Dan Dammyer. Chuck Goehl, Paul Yurs, Gary Helmuth, »nd Ray Hicks. All except Ray and Gary are Seniors. Others who will ^ee a lot of action this year are Seniors Fred Hoffman and Mike Ashbough, and Junior Jim Drafall. A large turnout of Soi^more and Freshnnan boys has resulted in one of the largest squads in recent years at Huntley High. The backfleld is experioiced, with Chuck Goehl, Barry Borchart, and John Bastian all lettering last sea¬ son. Line lettermen from last year include Dan Dammyer, Gary Hel- moth, Paul Yurs, Dave Bjom. This forms «. good micleas from which to fill out the rest of the line. I feel def«ise will be a Redskin strong point this year 7 lettermen returning from last year's startteg lineup. A big hole in the Hne wfll have to be fliled as Riehard Knestner was the unfortunate victim of a shoulder seperation kst week and is a doubtful player this season. At this point I am going to stick my head over the proverbial chop¬ ping block by predicting Huntley victories over Hampshire, Hebron, Hiawatha, Central, and a very close win over Earlvill with Richmond a tossup to give the Redskins a 5-3 (possible 6-2). For a tie for second place in the Little Eight Confer¬ ence. First game for the Redskins is this Friday at home against Rich¬ mond at 8:00 P.M. See you there.
