Students were asked to write an essay entitled "My Life Without The Bill Of Rights." Winners are: CLASS II (llth il 12th grade) 1st - Stephanie Jaroch 2nd - Natasha Drufke Srd - Matt Ewertowski CLASS I (7th il Sth grade) 1st - Jessica Kittel 2nd - Matt Drufke 3rd - Emily Lombard Class II 1st Place My Life Without The Bill Of Rights By Stephanie Jaroch, Huntley High Senior The Bill of Rights is the basis for any action an American makes. Life without this base would be very different from the life we know today. Everyday activities would be affected by the lack of the structure that the Bill of Rights provides. The freedom and protection that the first ten amendments guarantees would be lost in our society. Americans can only wonder what their life would be like if the Bill of Rights had never been written and whether the basic privileges in the Bill of Rights that many Americans take for granted would be supporting the country. Life would be dramatically changed if there was no Bill of Rights to guide the footsteps of all people. For example, the First Amendment provides for the freedoms of the press, religion, assembly, speech, and petition. Without this particular amendment, common practices would be under the scrutiny of everyone. An author could never write a book without having it be challenged or even censored by all who opposed his ideas. An artist could never paint a picture or compose a sculpture without someone flghting the display of it. All those who have grievances against the government could never be heard. Of all the amendments contained in the Bill of Rights, the First Amendment seems to cause the most controversy, mainly in its interpretation as it pertains to the above examples and to many others across America. This controversy is also provided for in the form of free speech. Without the First Amendment, children could never read what are deemed the classics, for most of them would be censored if it were continued on page 5 '^ Objects found in nature were place on light- sensitive paper and exposed to light in order to make a negative-like picture as part of the April 22nd, Earth Day program at the Huntley Library. Huntley Library Celebrates Earth Day With Art, Music By Joyce Liput The Huntley Library's Earth Day Celebration, April 22, brought an unexpectedly large number of children to take part in the activities. The first part of the program was directed by Theresa Darby, a Huntley artist who does illustrations for children's books. Half the group started with paper and crayons, designing Earth Day posters. The other half used objects found in nature to create a design on light- sensitive paper. Feathery leaf patterns, shell designs and a variety of shapes appeared after exposing the papers to outside light. The groups exchanged jobs and everyone completed both art projects to take home. Talented musician/singer. Sue Hansen, presented the second part of the program. A rousing chorus of "Happy Earth Day" was followed by a recycling "Rap" song, and American Indian Song. Hansen conducted the group in making a "dirty words" list, having to do with ecology. To finish off the fun, they used these words in an ecology Bingo game. Huntley SHARE Food Program Starts Up End Of May By Reverend Ron Woodruff The Huntley "SHARE" program, a food program open to participants who do two or more hours of community service in a month, is close to starting. A site for the food distribution center is in the process of being secured and an announcement to this effect may be made in another week. A site must be secured before the program can start. As soon as the site is determined, the program will start with a sign-up day for those wishing to receive the first distribution, which quite probably will be on Saturday, May SO. Sign-up will take place at least two weeks before that distribution date. A Host Organization Volunteer Team has been trained by the Rockford SHARE center to administer the program. Team leadership includes: Host Site ii Outreach Team Leader, Rev. Woodruff: Community Service Team Leader, Carol Von Bosse; Registration Team Leader, Jan Ruemelin, assisted by Irene Freund and Vera Swanson; Distribution Team Leader, Alex Von Bosse; Trucking Team Leader, Joe Femali; and Distribution Day Team Leaders, Ann Christiansen, Bee Markus, and Peggy Phillips. Others on the Volunteer Team include Walter Freund, Fred Ahrens and Cora Woodruff.
