The Church had purchased the house and property immediately south and ad¬ jacent to their land. Earlier this year, the Church tore down the atmcture and made a parking lot. ^Several objectors approached village officials and the Catholic Church was forbade the use of the proper¬ ty for parking until a decision could be made of it's legality for parking, under the zoning ordinance. Attor¬ ney Caldwell sXf^ "Since it is two lots under single oiraen^Dj^cxon- tnrf, the parking lot wou^f » ol accessory use to the churcll Itself. It really don't need rezoning. The character of it's use is changed, but it falls under the permission, It's classified under these rules which apply now ... the church owns both l<As, so tbat applies to the lot on which the building is located and then accessory tises clearly inciden¬ tal to the above, which would apply to parking, so that really there is no rezoning involved because even though the character of the use is changed, the exact way to use the land is different, it still falls under the zoning ordinance." The village board, by vote, approved tiie use of the lot. Mr. Jack Brunschon and Mr. Al Ackman were present at the meet¬ ing. Mr. Brunschon asked the board to restrict parking on one side of Grove Street in front of his resi¬ dence and Mr. Ackman's residence. Mr. Brunschon stated that Grove Street is a fire lane with cars parked on either side of the street at Main Street, it would be difficult for a fire truck to maneuver be¬ tween the parked cars.

Auto Wrecks 5 Acre Corn Chief Richard Nelson reports that last Saturday night, an automobile was driven through the cornfield on the Ralph Drafall farm off Ruth Road, near the Huntley-Dundee blacktop. The Grafton Township is preseittly grading along Ruth road and the fences have been taken down on the Drafall and Mac Bund gard farms. The motorist also took down 2 rows of corn on the Bund¬ gard property and drove through a bean field. The beans, however had been picked. Chief Nelson stated that a car was driven through the Drafall com field on a "fox and geese" like pattern. It Ls estimated that $750 worth of damage was done on the Drafall property. Chief Nelson has been checking vehicles throughout the Huntley area for corn stalks on their undercarriage. It was reported that the Automo bile made seven entrances and ex¬ its into the field, going deep into the cornfield. It was also reported that the corn was flattened to the ground so that a mechanical corn picker could not pick the ears. Hunt¬ ley police have a tire print. Some of the tires are bald on the side as if the driver had made power turns. The Drafall's insurance Company have thus far declined to pay for the loss, stating that if the corn was in a crib or housed it would be protected, but still in the ground, it is not protected. It is estimated that possibly 5 acres of com was des- royed. Veterans Day Services New Flag for Huntley On Monday, Nov. 10th, the Am¬ erican Legion presented the village of Huntley with a new flag.

Pastor Harm stated, "We dare not forget men like Bill Borchart, and others who paid the supremo price that we might en joy a today and tomorrow . . . Is it enough simply to remember them, I don't think so. We have to make ourselves worthy of the sacrifice they made ... by rededicating our¬ selves to the principles upon which our nation was built aivd by which it alone will prove itself worothy of enduring."
