This was a rough year, extremely wet as shown in the yearly totals, August 10th was the day of the 8" rain (do you remember?) in¬ cluding a 4" downpour in an hour. Hunttey is not prepared fon this amount of water nor is any town. Towns drain into rivers and rivers wc found out, have lAmita. The water level in river wAbets haS to lywer before the drain starts run¬ ning freely again, it sure is a frus¬ trating feeling to be powerless to do anythiriig constructive until wa¬ ter subsides. 1 used extra pumps to puJl water from the tile but it just mtde a "round-robdn"; water went out and cam e right back in because the outlet tile was bucking the flow in the creek. At one time the flow ff water was actually bemg forced from the creek back into Huntley's tile, I made .several trips checking ihe river outlets and the trouble was all the way to the Rock River. During these times, drainage tiles became sluggish and it takes a few days of normal flow to oorrect this. Therefore, when taking care of the ice and snow on the streets, one mus-t look art aU areas of city maintenance so that while correct¬ ing one problem, a bigger one is not credit eisewher — especiclly tliis year. On streets with curb and gutter, s»nd camot be applied thick enough to help without dt- veloping ck"ainage problems because when it thaws the melting ice flush¬ es the sand into the dnains. The volume of tnaffk; helps break up icy conditions, so the lesser travel¬ led secondary streets will remain hazardous 'longer than the main streets. Stop aigi* should be pro- tecled, howevw, when temperatures are very cold, no ahpasives will adhere to the ice. So for fche short time that advense weather oondi- ticms exist, people must be cau¬ tious. Sidewalks in plajoes were dif¬ ficult to clear and pedestriais al¬ so had to use the Streets. Which reminds me of the worst winter day of '72, Dec. 12th; with a freez¬ ing temperalture, ovemi^ we had 4" of snow, cha.nging aft 5:00 a.m. to hafi and sleet, tiien 3" of rain. The next couple of days were down aix>und 0. Well we've been up to our ears ill water this past year. Hope '73 win be better but looks like we may have a Uttle trouble this sjwing; there is a tot of modsture in the ground. Here's to lietter days. 4cross The Editors Desk The following is a letter sent to Isihareholders of the Huntley Medical jcenter Building: IHUNTLEY MEDICAL BUILDING, Dear Shareholder: Your attendance at the Annual' iMeetan^' of the Huntley Medical |Building certainly would be appre¬ ciated The Directors Ihiiik lhat Ithis is a very important meeting Idirough the fact that thoy will be jliscussing the possible sale of tho lildmg.
