Illinois Bell Manager Don Leg¬ ner says construction and techni¬ cal work needed to provide the aervice, requested two years ago by Huntley subscribers, is nearing completion. Target date for the new service is August 13. When it begins, Huntley resi¬ dents will be able to make toU- free calls to Elgin and Woodstock, as well as Algonquin, Crystal Lake, East Dundee, West Dundee, Carpentersville, Hampshire, Plato Center, Union, and other com- munitties. .^ In effect, according to Legnw, where Hnntley phone nsera now have about 700 other customers_in their toll-free area, the naWpJW will be increased to nearly '•JOOO. CoatoBiers will be aWe to call anywhere in this enlarged ^11- fne area, aa often as thej « \e, ^l^^fiSiS^lfct n^tele. phone rates will apply. Foi* «e«" ample, one-party local residential service, now $3.65, will ^i^l^- One-party business servic^J^bw $6.75, will increase to $12. Because of necessary equipment changes, seven-digit dialing also will go into effect in Huntley at the same time as the extended lo¬ cal area service. Beginning Aug. 18, to reach a local number. Hunt- lay callers will have to dial all seven digits of the number in order to complete the call. The changes will not affect cus¬ tomers who have subscribed to the Community Service (Unlimit- ed-26) introduced last year. This optional offering permits tele¬ phone users to place unlimited calls toll-free to any one of more than 200,000 telephones within about a 25-mile radius. Legner believes, though, that some Community Service custo¬ mers will find they can save mon¬ ey by converting back to local service when the extended local area goes into effect. Although the new flat rate area is smaller than that for Community Service, some customers may find they're making most of their calls within the new area.

June Meeting oi Supervisors Tlie Supervisor's of McHcnr.s County held a i-ather stormy meet¬ ing on Monday. June 27. It was quite evident that tihc election was over, for a while any^vay. One ,->l the Supervisors was so biiash ;ls to tell the other that he had been standing in the sun too long, and that he was "way out in left field." Mr. Howard Vogel, Rich¬ mond, said that he didn't mind Mr. Wm. Ward, Chemung, saying that be was, way out in left field but that he didn't think the derog¬ atory remark was necessary. Mr. Ward didn't apologize. This was in regard to the rather heated discussion regarding $54.50 which appeared on the I .abor Fees and Salaries report and was said to be a bill for a dinner at the Mc¬ Henry Country Club for dinnei-s for the new County Board of Health committee. Mr. Vogel said that he did not think thait the taxpayers should have to p>ay this tab, but that who ever took these people to dinner siiould pay for it themselves. He said that the taxpayers should know of this CONTINUED ON PAGE THREE Resuriacing At ^Th^titSwt^eial - The Parking Lot at the Union Special Machine Co. has been black topped over the 4th of July and early Tuesday and Wednes¬ day of this week.

This is perhaps the first time in Its history that the grass has been cut on the land. At the present time the Park Board is looking for al used mower to keep the grass at a. length condncive for picnicldng, bar beques and relaxing. There is still much wood and other debris which should be cleaned up to l>eautify the park even more. There are several holes which could be very injurious to young chil¬ dren or horse-back riders which need ts be filled np. Some people have made use of the park already this year for barbeques. However, there ia a need for trash oans and buring barrels to be placed througteut the area. Work shoukl also be done on the Boy Scont Calvin. The window^ have been broken out on this building a long time ago. There is quit* a bit ot water at the park. S6me at the water at the present time li^ about 5 feet deep.
