THURSDAY, AUGUST 29, 1968 VOLUME 9 — NUMBER 20 PHONBl ¦669-6621 (any time) (if no answer) 469-0998 SCHOOL FILE HUNTLEY HIG}| SCHOOL HUNTLEY, ILL 8 PAGES MAILED AND DISTBIBUTKD WSBBLV Chief Closes TavernsFriday Huntley's chief of police Richard Nelson reported that on Friday night last week at about 10 p.m. 12 motorcycles and riders and four cars of people (about 25 persons in all came into Huntley and stopped at Offie's Tap. The police chief and four patrolmen entered the tavern, closed it as well as other taverns in town and directed the !?roup to leave town. Mr. Nelson stated that he informed the group that if they returned to town the taverns would be closed until they left. It was re ported that the group then left town in orderly fashion. After the group had left Huntley the taverns were permitted to re¬ open. The reason this group of people were asked to leave town stemmed from an accident which happened the previous week-end when a group of 60 motorists and motor¬ cyclists became unrully and creat¬ ed a disturbance in one of the tav¬ erns as well as doing other acts of indiscretion on main Street. When the group was ordered out of town at that time, some of them threaten¬ ed to burn buidings and return 200 strong. The Huntley police depart¬ ment hired aditional men to cope with any possible situation last week end as well as having members of the fire department on hand in case trouble should develop.
