Armed with weapons and a search warrant officers converged on the farm at 12619 W. Main St., Huntley, at about 5:30pm on July 14. Reports of unusual traffic and suspicious activities drew the attention of police. Chief Rossi emphasized, "We must develop the case thoroughly before we can act." A two-month combined investigation by the three agencies culminated in the arrest of 2 suspects, Kenneth E. Arellani, 28, of Chicago and Thomas D. Glozer, 21, of Waukegan. Police confiscated a plastic bag of marijuana, an electronic scale and smoking pipes. Weapons found on the property and taken into custody included a double- barrel shotgun, a pair of 22 semi-automatic rifles, a 44 magnum pistol, a bullet proof vest, numerous boxes of ammunition, rifle scopes and several gun clips capable of holding up to 30 bullets. Also found were several ornate swords and daggers. Several dead chickens were reportedly seen lying about the property causing police to wonder if ritualistic activity was taking place. A portable telephone found to be stolen and numerous photos of motorcyclists cavorting at the farm were discovered on the property. At the time of the arrest each suspect was charged with felony possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of firearms without valid firearms owner cards. The suspects were taken to McHenry County Jail in Woodstock. Chief Rossi reported both men were found to be convicted felons and further charged with possession of stolen property. Bond was set Monday, July 17. Glozer was released on bond and is sought on the additional charge. Arellani was unable to post bond at that time. The suspects were apparently residents of the farm, owned by an un-named person. A woman friend of the suspects was still in residence at the farm. Pheasants and other wildlife being raised at the farm will be under the care of the Conservation Office. Chief Rossi states, "Further investigation on this and other cases will continue between the Huntley Police and other agencies." WflWWWWWWWWMWOMBWi Don't forget to mark your calendar for July 29th.

Breakfast is being served—to aproximately 175 people who are part of the Bluecoats Drum and Bugle Corps from Canton, Ohio. The group is on tour for most of the summer, from mid June to the end of August. They have come with their four motor coach buses, 2 semi trucks (one for food ii kitchen supplies and the other for instruments, uniforms & equipment), several motor homes and a truck ii trailer with souvenirs that are for sale. The group sleeps at various schools along the way and selected Huntley as their "home base" during the Midwest Championship competition at DeKalb. The grade school gym and a portion of the hallway was. according to one observer, "wall to wall sleeping bags". The Bluecoats used the football field for practice and headed off for Huskie St^duim on Friday and Saturday evening. Their performance earned the Bluecoats a fifth place rating, with the nearby Phantom Regiment in Rockford winning first place. The Bluecoats will be entering the international competition in Kansas City which will take place this year on August 19th. During the past two years, the group has placed in the top 12 internationally.

It is now too late to mail applications and guarantee delivery of stickers before the July 31 expiration date. Stickers also may be purchased at 975 banks, 216 savings and loan associa¬ tions, 41 credit unions and about 600 Chicago-area currency exchanges.

As it outgrew the funding capabilities of the Canton Police Department, the Bluecoats began to hold fund raisers. They stage two shows and hold a Memorial Day Mini Car Grand Prix as their major fund raisers. They also receive gifts and earn monitary prizes to help make up their budget of $1,000,000 for the season. The age range of participants is 14 to 21 years old with the majority of members being in the 17 to 18 range. When they reach the age of 21, regulations force them to stop playing, but a number of them go on to become directors, or assist in other ways for the welfare of the group. Rick Brown from Huntley was a member of the group as a teen and is now one of the percussion directors. Each section of the Corps has a director(s) so that much of the practicing is done in small groups before it is all put together. Several parents have devoted their entire summer, while others join the group for a week or two, doing what needs to be done to keep this group on the road. Cooking, driving, scheduling ii finances are areas in which the parents are a tremendous help. In addition to all the hours of togetherness during the summer, the performers meet one weekend per month during the rest of the year in order to perfect their music and routines. Wild, Wild West Festival St. Thomas Church, on Rt. 176 in Crystal Lake, will have a Wild Wild West Festival July 20-23. The festival is an annual fundraising event for the parish.
