SERVING THE PEOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1960 CJie Suntlep jfarmsiitiE USPS 580-360 THURSDAY, JUNE 29 - VOLUME 35, NUMBER 13 - HUNTLEY, ILLINOIS TWENTY-FIVE CENTS Huntley Chamber opposes business license ordinance The Board of Directors of the Huntley Area Chamber of Commerce and Industry would like to inform the business conununity and govemment entities they have chosen to stand opposed to the business license ordinance. It is the Board's intent to state their position as it pertains to licensure of businesses established in or doing business within the boundaries ofthe Village ofHuntiey. The Board of Directors of the Huntley Area Chamber of Commerce is opposed to the licensing for two reasons: First, businesses whose intent is to fraudulently solicit or solicit and then provide substandard goods will not file the appropriate licensure application. They will not have reason to do so. They will simply make their sales and disappear. They will have no reason to pay fees simply to bilk their customers, and simply relying on their business ethics to entice them to file the licensure paperwork is rhetorical. Second, the village has no ability to enforce this ordinance. There is no possiblemethodologytocontrol these vendors who may sell within the village limits, and there is no legal maneuver to force such businesses to file the licensure paperwork. This village does not have "home rule" and therefore cannot follow this form of ordinance.

But really...what do we celebrate? What ¦ is the Fourth of July all about? Today, I want to emphasize there is a reason for the celebration. There is a reason for the fireworks. There is a reason to pause and reflect on the important history of our nation. That reason..FREEDOM! That is what this day is all about. I believe freedom can be compared to the throb of the heart. Freedom beats in the hearts of everyone across this great land. It was the quest for freedom that lead to the American Revolution. Now, more than 200 years later, I believe this Fourth of July should be a special celebration of America's freedom. Consider where America and the world might be today if 50 years ago, the champions of freedom had failed in World War II. Fifty years ago a generation of Americans took up a cause..left home and family...for months years..facingan unknown future and even death. In 1941, President Roosevelt's State of the Union Address spoke of the Four Freedoms; Freedom of Speech andExpression, Freedom of Worship, Freedom of Want, Freedom of Fear. Ask a World War II veteran or family member about freedom and you' 11 get a ready answer. To them, freedom is something to protect, to cherish and to hold on to. see FREEDOM on page 9 Firefighters train in departnnent water fight By Joyce Liput StaffWriter The new name for fire department water fights is "Hose and Water Training Competition/'and it's definitely appropriate. The level of skill involved in holding a stream of water on the designated target could only improve the efficiency of firdighters. With 85 lbs of pressure coming through the nozzle, each five-man team tries to control the hose and aim the stream of water at a barrel centered between them. The team that forces the barrel past the other team in a 2-out-of-3 contest wins. Average times run 15-25 seconds, with the shortest being 5 seconds. The longest contest took place between the Huntley Oki-Timers team andthe Wilmot/45 team-1 minutes 33 seconds! Long seconds go by with no movement on either side of the spr^ing hose as each team holds the barrel in position. Who knows what tiny fluctuation caused that all- important variation of pressure that moves the barrel back into play. The Huntley Old-Timers team, comprised of Bofe Kxtaie on nozzle, Gary Nepermann, Mark Kunde, Milford Brown and Doug Jacobson, fought. in memory of former team member, JohnHutsler,Jr., who passed away recently. After first overpowering Woodstock II team, Huntley Old-Timers eventually fell to the Wilmot/45 team, who went on to win the championship. Huntley's younger team of Mark Kunde, Scott Ravagnie, Matt Williams, Eric Bentley and Jeff Homuth fell to Wheatland in the 2nd heats. During a brief break in the action, Connie Hustler, wife of John Hutsler, awarded Huntley Old- Timers team members with framed photos ofthe team in their youn^r days (around the70s). "I remember when..." and "maybe this was..." memories were shared.
