SERVING THE PEOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1960 tKIje JHuntkp jfarmsfibe HUNTLEY, ILLINOIS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1991 - VOLUME 31, NUMBER 20 USPS 580-360 Huntley P.D. Demonstrates After School Safety By Joyce Liput Huntley Police Chief Rick Rossi and Officer Mike Hewitt brought their safety program to Kindergarten through 2nd graders at Huntley Elementary School Friday, August 30. Officer Hewitt began the program by showing the group a license plate such as they would see on any car on the street. He then asked how they walked home from school, warning that groups are safer than alone. A three-some who usually walk home together, Tanya Krich, Katie Pippenger it Jessica Boston, volunteered to assist with a demonstration. The three girls pretended to be walking home from school when Chief Rossi, came in disguised as "the Bad Guy." He pretended to be driving through Huntley in his "folding chair car" and tried to get the girls to get in the car with him. He even offered them candy and ice cream. When they all refused, he tried to get children from the rest of the audience to get in his car and go for ice cream. Choosing three volunteers, Adam Reeves, Matt Williams and . Deana Rossi, they "drove" along until Police Officer Hewitt stopped them. After questioning the "suspect" and finding he was a stranger to the children in his vehicle, Officer Hewitt placed him under arrest. Chief Rossi removed his disguise so that he and Officer Hewitt could finish the program. The classes also participated in a discussion on handling potentially dangerous situations. Points on never talking to strangers, going near or getting in strange vehicles, and always telling an adult (parent, teacher, police, etc.) about anything strange were thoroughly covered. The final test came when the children were asked if anyone remembered the license plate number that they were shown at the beginning of the program. Many of them provided the correct information. Being able to identify the strangers and their vehicle was shown to be a very important part of safety. The classes enthusiastically expressed their gratitude for the presentation before returning to the classrooms. Village Advises Safe, Legal Burning With the fall season approaching, the Village President and Board of Trustees would like to remind residents of the provisions of the Village Open Burning Ordinance. Presently, the Village still allows residents to burn leaves on private property. The open burning of leaves is subject to the following conditions: 1. No leaves may be burned prior to 9am and all fires must be extinguished prior to 9pm. 2. No leaves may be burned within 10 ft. of any structure. 3. No leaves may be burned in the street or between the sidewalk and street. 4. All residue from the leaf burning shall be placed in suitable containers and placed for removal with the garbage pickup. Please note that open burning applies only to leaves. All other rubbish, debris, or yard waste should be disposed of through your local refuse hauler. In addition, any container burning, such as burning inside of metal drums, is against Village Ordinance. Residents should discontinue burning in this manner. Parkside Burglar Arrested Huntley Police arrested Robert Brian Bute, 27 years old, of Streator, II., for burglary to Huntley's Parkside Tap, at 3:20am, Sept. 4, 1991. While on patrol, Officer Hillner found a window that had been broken. According to Chief Rossi, after the owner arrived Officer Hlllner found Bute in the basement hiding behind a furnace. Bute was in possession of more than $40 in change taken from the register. Bute has been charged with burglary and criminal damage to property and is awaiting bond call at McHenry County Jail. Adam Reeves, Matt Williams and Deana Rossi pretend they have been lured into the car by promises of treats from "The Bad Guy" when Officer Hewitt stops the suspect. The demonstration was part of a program for K-2nd by Huntley Police, giving them tips on getting home from school safely. Tanya Krich, Katie Pippenger and Jessica Boston, pretending to walk home from school, are offered treats by "The Bad Guy" (Chief Rossi in disguise) as part of an after school safety program presented to Kindergarten through 2nd graders by the Huntley Police.
