i^he Mnlltd Jarmsik USPS 580-360 THURSDAY, MARCH 19,1987 VOLUME 26-NUMBER 60 OFFICE phone' 31-2-669-5621 YOUR HOME TOWN PAPER SINCE 1960 2S4 per copy • Minutes of Huntley Planning Commission The regular monthly meeting of the Huntley Planning Commission was called to order at 7:30 p.m. by Chairman Wilmer Rohlwing. Those members of the board present were Jack Daum, Ron Hahn, Noel Hansmann, Robert Schachtner, Paul Mercer and Tom Jurs. Also present were Mayor Dhamer and Building Inspector John Spradlin. The minutes of the last meeting of February 9, 1987, were read. Mr. Jurs moved to accept the minutes as read. Mr. Hansmann seconded. Motion carried. The first order of business was presented by Attorney Ralph Hardy, representing Michael and Jeff Grismer, on behalf of their parents .who own the property on Myrtle Street. The Grismers are proposing three, four-unit apartments, which are some variation of a duplex. Because of the sewer line on the north section of their property it makes the fifth lot unusable except for access or parking. With this project the density would be about 10 persons per acre. They believe this is compatible with the area. They are not building for resale, but for investment. When looking at buildings from the west it will not appear to be totally two structure. The property directly east of this propoerty is zoned manufacturing. They plan for brick buildings with space in the future for garages. The use of the garages are restricted only to tenants. They plan to put up some garages at least before two buildings are completed. When asked about storage are, Mr. Grismer said some inner storage could be available right away, either in apartment building or garages. Mr. Schachtner questioned engineers approval on this. It was explained that at these early stages, the engineer is not yet asked to review, not until plat layed out. The Grismers did pay the $125 for the meeting and $20 filing fee.

Woodstock Opera House Celebrates lOTh Anniversary Michael Zegarski, Crystal Lake, and Michelle Gessert, Elgin, have been chosen to play the leads in "South Pacific," the upbeat South Seas musical now in rehearsal by a cast of 45 under auspices of the Woodstock Musical Theatre Company. Zegarski will play Emile de Becque, the plantation owner on the island. Gessert is the nurse he falls in love with, Ensign Nellie Forbush. The play opens at the Woodstock Opera House on Friday, April 3 in a 10th anniversary celebration of the Opera House renovation in 1976 and early 1977. The Woodstock Musical Theatre Co. presented the first musical following the re-opening, and in a sentimental gesture is repeating that first show, "South Pacific." Several cast members from the original presentation are in this cast, a few in the same roles played 10 years ago. Most notable is the choice of Shirley Smith to re-appear as Bloody Mary, a powerful role for a popular local actress. Bob Wildbrandt, Crystal Lake, is a familiar figure on the Opera House stage, and in "South Pacific" he is the Professor. Tony Casalino, the dynamic Woodstock high school director of theatre and stage veteran, played the Professor 10 years ago, and in this 1987 revival, he's the colorful Luther Billis, sailor. Other veterans in the show include Sharon Harrison, Kathie Comella, Sue Parks, Jim Meisel, Lou Czarny and Brian Sager, all of Woodstock; Charlaine Tiffany, McHenry; Bill Baber, Twin Lakes, Wis.; and Peter Carroll, Crystal Lake. "South Pacific" will be presented for 10 shows between April 3 and April 18. Information about the show and tickets may be obtained by calling the Woodstock Opera House between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, at (815) 338-8300.
