If you've ever called or dealt with the Grafton Township assessors office you've encountered Louise Kreutzer. Mrs. Kruetzer, an active community member and senior rights activist, was recognized at the Township meeting for her eleven years of service as secretary to the assessor. In addition to her secretarial and research duties, she will continue working with Senior Services and running the Huntley Senior Center. Mrs. Kruetzer represents the seniors of Illinois and McHenry County, making trips to Springfield to meet with legislators and also to Washington, D.C. Though always busy, Louise hopes additional spare time will enable her to work at compling anecdotes and events for her book of Huntley history.

At the last village board meeting, Steve Nimbar, Director of Public Works, stated that his department had found evidence of tampering with the sampling device which tests the waste water from Pentaplex (a local manufacturer of printed circuit boards). Pentaplex has been repeatedly cited for dumping excessive levels of amonia into Huntley's sewer system. Following action taken at the board meeting, the sewer was permanently disconnected and the manhole cover welded closed. National Award Winner This award is a prestigious honor very few students can ever hope to attain. In fact, the Academy recognizes less than 10% of all American high school students. Christine Brown, who attended Huntley High School was nominated for this National Award by Miss Chris Lundin, a Science Teacher at the school. Christine will appear in the United States Achievement Academy Official Yearbook, published nationally. "Recognizing and supporting our youth is more important that ever before in Americas history. Certainly United States Achievement Academy award winners should be congratulated and appreciated for their dedication to excellence and achievement,'' said Dr. Geroge Stevens, Executive Director of the United States Achievement Academy. The Academy selects USAA winners upon the exclusive recommendation of teachers, coaches, counselors or other school sponsors and upon the Standards of Selections set forth by the Academy. Christine Brown is the daughter of Milford ic June Brown. Her grandparents are William ic Lauretta Bein of Huntley and Manning ic Eileen Brown of Huntley. Notice Hydrants will be flushed in Huntley on July 27th and July 28th beginning at 10:00 p.m.
