Vera Swanson, Secretary A man Called Scoop Hello Huntley, This week marks one year since Quin O'Brien the third, former publisher and founder of this paper, died. In last weeks editorial the author encouraged us to reflect on events in our life. When I did, this came to mind. When I thought about Quin's death I started flipping through old papers to see what has happened since his death. In these old papers from last June I found one question that seemed to be on everyones tongue. This question was. Is the Farmside going to continue? The answer to this is a resounding yes. The Farmside will continue as long as we receive the unequaled support from this town as we always have. This issue is dedicated to the memory of Quin O'Brien III. Succeeding are some of the editorials from key issues of the last year. In My first editorial as publisher I spoke of a dream Quin had. It was his dream of giving this town a paper to be proud of. How am I doing Dad? 25c per copy Landfill News Last week we told you that the proponent of a landfill near Huntley appealed to the Illinois Supreme Court, after having been turned down by the McHenry County Board, the Illinois Pollution Control Board, and the State Appellate Court. On Friday, June 5, the Supreme Court refused to hear his appeal. After two and one half years we have won our fight against a proposed Huntley landfill that had the potential to pollute our water supply and would have been a nuisance to our community. If you are happy with this conclusion you can show your appreciation with the pur¬ chase of Raffle Tickets from local business establishments, or by making a contribution directly to the L.E.A.C. account at the Huntley State Bank. Your Landfill Emergency Action Committee will be dis¬ banded, but first we must pay off a debt of several thou¬ sand dollars. We appreciate the help you have given us in the past, and we now ask you to help us close this account.
