T. Spnatlin Co. at 11902 4th Street, Huntley. Mr. William Tananerus of Wood- .slock inUiated the new address in conjunction with postal, utility andl law enfoi cement officials. Original¬ ly the new five digrit postal num¬ bers were to include McHenry and Luke Counties. The dividing line between the two counties being used as a base line with numbers fjoing west in McHenry County. i..ake County however, turned thumbs down cn tht* project' and ' set up their own numbering system, which according to Mr. Tammeas doesn't work. So aU McHenry Coun¬ ty numbers go west from the Lake County line. The base line for north and south numbers runs through Woodstock, Illinois, the center of the McHenry County. The line hap¬ pens to run throu^ Cooney's Fun¬ eral Home which is the starting point for all north and south num- liei^. The farther north or south you go the larger the numbers be- et^nucs. Nunibers on Wast and south streets are odd. Numbers on north and east streets are even. The numbers indicate how ta>r each liome is from the base line iConney's Funeral Home) or the Lake County Line, For instance the Huntley Farmside office is lo¬ cated on the north side of 4th street sO number is even. The number 11902 indicates that the office is eleven and 9/10 miles from the Lake County Lin e. The last two digits indicate a lot in this tenth of ;i mile. The number of tho Huntley Shoe Box is 11711 whi(ii indicates tbat business is 1 and 7/10 miles from the Lake County Line as. they too are located on an east-west str«K>t. The Shoe Box is on the south side i>( tho street and therefore has an odd number. E)rnio's Restaurant located om (.>ast side of Route 47 has 11012 for a number which indi(^ates that they are eleven and 0/10 miles from the line running through Cooney's Funeral Home in Wood- .stock. The Huntley Farm Store located on the west side of Route 47 across from Ernie's Restaurant has man¬ ber 11013 iadicaiting they too arev U and 0/10 miles from the Wood-| stock line. This doesn't mean that Huntley| will get house to house delivery mail. According to a post (rffice spokesm.an Huntley will need 2500 people before mail is delivered hoiiso to hcus:^. Hcxwevcr residents who live Vs miles from the post office are entitled to rural mall delivery of a certain number of those living cn a street request it.

This Ls a change of posiMon for Stroupe, who spoke against Uie ooncopt at the McHenry eounity pui>- Tic ineeting in Crystal Lake test August. "The public opposition vo!i<'ed by eonceriiod residents -sf McHenry, Kane and Uie other throe ooumties outside Cook forced those in Spring¬ field to change the bill to p-ive those of us in the suburban coinvMes fair rtrreser.tation and ™aran<oed serv- i'O in mtuirn for our iax doUai-s." .Strcupc said. "l>irir« the hoWay st^son, I spent 25 or 30 hours studv- in^ the revi.sed bill, comparine it with every phjectJon I have heard or sren. and prepariixg a point-by- point analysis. T found that most cf ti-.e criticisms we hear and read are either misileadiinp or inaccurate. I concUided that ^he Hill is a good one for us and that someone .'should speiak up and say so, and why. I'm wiilinff to do this at any puMic forum." Stiwipe matatains that a genera¬ tion i of one-man. Ohfroar transpor- tatioh is napikHy dmaiwing to a close.
