SERVING THE PEOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1960 Che JKuntltp fnxm^iht HUNTLEY, ILLINOIS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1991 VOLUME 31, NUMBER 23 USPS 580-360 Historical Museum Breaks Ground On New Addition By Tracey Schwartz Last Thursday the McHenry County Historical Society (MCHS) held a ground breaking ceremony for the addition of a new 2 story wing to its museum located on Main Street in Union. The $266,900 project is being built by Carmichael Construction of Marengo. It will be complete 135 days from ground breaking. According to museum director Nancy Fike all the monies to complete this addition have been donated with the major contributor being MCHS Founder Dorothy McEachren. The building designed by architect Tom Hopkins, will be a 60' X 77' structure attached to the north side of the existing museum. The exterior will be done in a rustic textured block to resemble the limestone architecture of the West Harmony school located on museum grounds. Pseudo windows with Italian made brackets and limestone lintels will also be put in. The barnwood interior will have fire proof walls and a lift for moving antiques between floors. The 2nd floor will be used entirely for storage. The rear section of the lower floor will become an agricultural display area. The remaining area is undetermined as yet. Several years ago Lois Deicke of Huntley donated $25,000 to the Society for an agricultural annexation. Finally, this donation has met its purpose. This is the first building program MCHS has taken on since 1972 when it purchased the museum. In 1981 the Society first began thinking about expanding. According to Fike, Huntlian Fred Ahrens continued on page 3 All set to dig the first scoop!

Redskins 0-3 After Hard Hitting Game By Shari Torrence, Cheerleading Sponsor Lions Sponsor Glaucoma Screening Unit The Huntley Redskins varsity football team suffered a loss last Friday, September 20, against the Chicago Christian Knights of Palos Hills. The final score of the hard-hitting game was 14-6. The Redskins played their best game of the season so far. There were 10 first downs for Huntley and 10 first downs for Chicago Christian. The Redskins yardage came mostly from the running game. Junior Sean Faworski had 12 carries for 54 yards. Lane Linnenkohl ran for 52 yards on 11 carries. The highest rushing average went to junior Nick Hunter, who averaged 14.8 yards per carry for a total of 74 yards. Linnenkohl had the only Redskins touchdown on a running play to score six. Huntley had 185 rushing yards to Chicago Christian's 229 yards. Junior quarterback Derek Brettman had only three completions, but he gained a total of 83 yards. Junior Chad Jeschke caught two passes for 70 yards. Faworski caught one pass for a 13 yard gain. This may have been Huntley's downfall, as Chicago Christian gained 147 yards on their passing game. On defense, junior Tim Lombard had four sacks against the Knights' quarter¬ back. That is in addition to his six solo tackles and his ten assists. Junior Robert Selling had a total of 23 tackles as well. These two players led the way for the Redskin defense. The junior varsity Redskins lost to Chicago Christian 6-0. On behalf of the junior varsity team. Coach Slattery said that the team had definitely improved since its game against St. Edward, but yet more improvements will need to be made before the game against Walter Lutheran of Melrose Park. Nathan Chapel, on the junior varsity squad, was injured in the game against Chicago Christian, but no further details were available on his condition. Both Redskin teams will play at home again on Friday, September 27, beginning at 6:00. They will go up against Walter Lutheran High School from Melrose Park. Huntley Lions Club will sponsor a visit from the Lions of Illinois Mobile Glaucoma Screening Unit on Sept. 30, from 9am to 12noon at the Huntley Medical Center. What do glaucoma, diabetes, and hypertension have in common? The answer: a direct relationship to blindness. All three, or the complications resulting from them, are involved in blindness. "Early detection, and knowledge are the best way to fight blindness," said Richard Swanson, President of the Huntley Lions. "Our screenings are for all three conditions. Visitors will also be screened for hypertension, or high blood pressure, and visual acuity, or how well you can see how far. Through these screenings we hope to alert people to potential trouble signs which will lead them to obtain professional care from their physician if any danger symptoms are uncovered." During the glaucoma screening itself, a licensed medical doctor uses a special device to measure the pressure within the eyeball. The screening is painless and quick. Doctors who do the screening are residents in ophthalmology from the Abraham Lincoln School of Medicine of the University of Illinois at the Medical Center. Lions assisting in screening are Ed it Bev Hartmann, Del it Fran Borhart, Darryl Gurnett, Dick Kohley, Huntley Medical Center, Lorraine Smith and Margaret Driscoll.
