Eiintlrg Jarmsik USPS.580-360 THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1989 VOLUME 29-NUMBER 24 OFFICE PHONE 312-669-5621 SERVING THE PEOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1960 25c per copy State Judging Teams McHenry County 4-Her8 Mike Gregory and Jacki Peterson of Harvard and Brian Wesemann of Huntley were selected to be members of the 1989 Junior 4-H Dairy Judging Team. The Junior team will represent Illinois in a regional 4-H dairy judging contest at the Mid-South Fair in Memphis, Tennessee on September SOth. Team Members are selected on the basis of their performance in the state judging contest in June, and the invitational contest held ' in August. There is a lot more to the 4-H judging program than just teaching young people how to evaluate a livestock species. In the process of judging and giving oral reasons, 4-Hers learn to think on their feet and to logically organize and articulate their reasons for placing the classes the way they did. These are skills that people can use all of their lives. For more information on the , 4-H judging program or on 4-H in general, please contact the McHenry County Extension Service at 815-338-4747. 3rd Grade Skyline One of our first class projects in social studies was to learn what a skyline is and make one. A skyline is the line at which the earth < and the sky seem to meet. We formed three committees for the sky, water, and buildings. We made a paper collage mural showing a city skyline. We used blue cubes of construction paper to form the sky and water. One very important thing we learned from making the skyline was to cooperate and share with each other. It was fun working in groups. Our chairpersons were: 3A Sky - Robby Mcintosh Water - Justin Norris Building - Lisa Neal SB Sky - Kerri Tumminello Water - Beth Miller Building - Nicole Walker Written by: Lexie Koeller Beth Miller Keri Tumminello Marilyn Eckman Installed As President Troop #167 Honors Leader The American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary 11th District InstUlation was held on Saturday, August 26th at the Wheaton American Legion Post.

Harvest Season and Slow Moving Vehicles Family drives along country foads arie common on cool and colorful fall days. A drive down a rural road in the fall can be enjoyable, but it can also be dangerous if drivers are not alert. Not only does fall produce beautiful scenery, it also produces harvest season and slow-moving vehicles (tractors, combines and other farm machinery). Slow-moving vehicles (SMVs) can pose a hazard on rural roads. Each year during the harvest season, thousands of accidents occur in the U.S. involving SMVs and passenger cars. "Most accidents involving SMVs are caused by motorists who are unable to reduce their speed in time to safely overtake farm machinery on Redskins Football The Huntley Redskins (1-1) lost to Chenoa 14-6 in a non -conference game Friday night. The varsity only game found Huntley down 7-0 at half-time. Brian Elwood scored Huntley's only touchdown in the fourth quarter. Huntley's attempt at a hard fought comeback ended with 4 incompleted passes. the road," says John Scott, a safety expert with the Country Companies insurance group. "Rear-end collisions and fatalities are often the result." Safety and health have been a priority of the Country Companies for more than 35 years. During this time, safety experts like Scott have presented health and . safety programs to more than 3 million Illinois residents. Country Mutual Insurance Company, one of the Country Companies, is the largest farm insurer and one of the largest auto insurers in Illinois. Rural roads are the most common place that SMV-auto accidents occur because motorists tend to be more relaxed and are traveling at higher speeds. The biggest difference between passing a car or truck and passing a SMV is the time it takes to pass safely. Motorist do not realize that tractors travel at significantly slower speeds - on average, 15 miles per hour — and they fail to adjust for the reduced reaction time. For example, a motorist coming over the top of a hill traveling 55 mph sees a truck 400 feet ahead which is traveling 45 mph. The motorists has 27 seconds to slow down before reaching the truck. If the vehicle ahead is a tractor rather than a truck and it's traveling 15 mph, there is a mere seven seconds before a collision would occur. The safety experts have several suggestions to help reduce the likelihood of an accident when traveling on rural roads. Watch for the Slow Moving Vehicle emblem, a fluorescent orange triangle bordered by reflective red, and flashing amber lights on tractors or other farm vehicles. These indicate a vehicle is traveling at a low rate of speed. Finally, remember that whether you're on a rural road or on an interstate highway, always wear your safety belt.
