Even the County Police commented the excellence of the Huntley High School student's behavior. The Chief also said this was the first time since he has been in Huntley (10 years) that anything like this has happened. OfHcials are conducting an thorough and extensive investigation of the threat. In co-operation with the telephone company, all calls to the schools are being monitored.

Huntley Firemen Appreciation Night For Wives The Winter Dinner held January 21st by the Huntley Fire Department is also Wive's Appreciation Night. A special "Thank You" to all the wives who are the unseen supporters of the Fire Department. They put up with calls at any time, day or night, also with meetings schooling and drills. It takes a very special woman to be a fireman's wife as they must be very understanding and have lots of patience.
