Board of Review Turns Down Grafton Appeal "We will take our ca.se to the State and to the courts." So stated Mayor Anthony Wujcik of Crystal Lane after he bad read a letter to the Crystal Lake Council from the McHenry County Board of Review slating that there will be no re¬ ductions on the assessments on the vacant lots in the part of Grafton Township which is in the corporate limits of Crystal Lake, specifically in Crystal Vista, Crystal Gardens, and the other West end subdivi¬ sions. The letter from the Board of Re¬ view stated that the assessments made by the Grafton Township as¬ sessor were correct The Mayor and Crystal Lake City CouikII tlvough their lawyer, Hal McKenney stated that the assess¬ ments on Uie lots had been raised while lots ttie same size in the Huntley'area of Grafton 'Townsh^ have remained at the old lower level. Besides this the city contends that this is a depressed area be¬ cause of the water and sewer as¬ sessments soon to be levied on these Crystal Lake lots and that this tax has caused the value of the property to depreciate because of the sewer and water assessment soon to be enacted.

Mr. Pucinski, candidate for die U.S. Senele seat currently held by Mr. Charles Percy, is tliought to be the only national Democratic office¬ holder to visit Huntley in a genera¬ tion. He watched the water fights and joined the Legion picitickerg in Diecke Park. "People such as those who live in the Huntley area are the ones who will elect me," said Mr. Pucinski. "These ordinary, hard¬ working people, visibly coiKemed about the soaring cost of living and angry about paying more than their fair share of the tax load, are tired of being represented by a million¬ aire senator who seems to be look¬ ing to the 1976 Presidential race instead of to the present neecb of the people of lUinoia. We need a workhors4 not a jfcovkhorse," Mr. Pucinski added. In a oonvenation with Mr. Bob Schirftz, Commander of the Huntley American Legion Poit Mr. Pudnski stressed that he is firmly opposed to any type of amnesty for draft evanders until all our fighting men and POWs are safely back homeu "1 am a Legion member," he said, adding that he led die first B-29 bombing raid on Tokyo and was awaixled the Distinguished Flying Cross and Air Medal.
