Huntley Faces Second Opponent Of 1994 Football Season By Joyce Liput Huntley High School's Friday night football game was considered a good one by many, for the effort if not the score. Though the Redskins lost to visiting Miiiedgeville 29-14, the team achieved an improved over-all performance level. Huntley brought into play some improved offensive maneuvers and worked hard for their 14 points. Huntley's first touchdown came in the second quarter when Ty Thompson ran 17 yards to score. Matt Robisky ran the 2-point conversion leaving Huntley trailing 14-8 at the end of the half. Thompson also scored a second time when he ran the final touchdown of the game. Huntley's next game will be away on Friday, Sept. 9, against Polo, beginning at 5:45pm. Go, Redskins! Huntley To Receive Grant For Village Hall Renovation Governor Jim Edgar announced 84 Illinois communities will share $4 million in Community Development Assistance Program grants, enabling them to renovate public buildings to accommodate the needs of people with disabilities. The Village of Huntley will be among those to benefit, receiving a grant of $51,800 to install a chairlift and rehab the interior of the current village hall building on the Town Square. Many communities, particularly small communities, lack the financial resources to renovate public buildings and bring them into compliance with requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act. These grants will provide the funds necessary to enable local governments to undertake the renovations needed to ensure that public services are accessible to all citizens, regardless of physical challenges. Rabies Reported In McHenry County Since spring 1994, three cases of rabies have been reported in McHenry County. The first of the three confirmed cases, a skunk, was found in the Algonquin area. The most recent two cases were bats, one from the Union area and the other from the McHenry area. There is a possibility that one of the bats had physical contact with an unvaccinated dog. The dog has been quarantined for observation. Pets must be currently immunized against rabies in order to provide a rabies barrier between wildlife and humans. Illinois State Law requires that all dogs be vaccinated against rabies by the age of 4 months. McHenry County Animal Control further recommends and encourages cat owners to vaccinate their pets as well. For the welfare and safety of humans and pets it is essential that pets be vaccinated and not allowed to roam free. Local Cornfield To Be A Star By Sally Archambeault Everyone in this area knows that our local scenery is something special. To Sterm, Rosenberg, and Cafferata, an advertising agency located in Chicago, a quiet section of Coyne Station Road west of Huntley in Grafton Township was the perfect setting for a commercial commissioned by Memorial Hospital of Morristown, New Jersey. Last Thursday, Sept. 1, Line #9 Productions of Schaumburg was out on location with a crew of more than a dozen people and a truckload of equipment. The actress was posed as a "sitting duck" in the middle of the road, and the large fan provided the sound effect of a truck hurtling toward her while she stared straight ahead, blissfully unaware. The theme of the ad campaign was women's health, especially the threat of heart disease, referred to as the "over-looked enemy". This commercial will only be shown on cable stations on the East Coast, and will be accompanied by a print campaign with pictures taken last Thursday at the same location.
