Huntley Youth Football was established to help prepare young playersforhigh-schoollevel football. By teaching players the proper fiindamentals at a younger age, they will leam the correct way to play first, before wrong habits are formed. The league also allows for compe¬ tition in a structured environment with protective uniforms, something not found on a playground, park or backyard. Schools that have a youth program already in place are years ahead of other high schools because the players have already leamed the funda¬ mentals. As a result, the players benefit, as well as the school. The costs to operate a youth football league are high. Equipment needs to be updated. League fees, insurance costs and many miscellaneous expenses need to be accounted for. Anyone wishing to sponsor Huntley Youth Football, please contact Tom Mohney at 669-5572 or Beth Berndt at 669-5621.

Huntley C.A.G. chapter meets, plans block-watch program By Beth Berndt The Huntley chapter of Communities Against Gangs met Mon., Nov. 6 to discuss issues related to preventing gang activity from coming to Huntley. One idea the chapter is trying to implement is a block-watch program, which would identify certain houses as "safe" houses for children, or anyone, to go to should a problem arise. These houses would be identified by a symbol placed in the window during hours that they are home. This block-watch is an idea that is already in place in other communities, which seem to have had good response. It sends the message that the neighborhood is being monitored by concerned citizens and will held bring a sense of peace to people who need to be out of the house for any length of time. C.A.G. is currently looking for "Block Captains" to help bring this process to Huntley. It would involve attending a couple of meetings, talking to neighbors and dropping off literature at their houses. For more information, please contact Ed Allison at 669-0542 or come to the next C.A.G. meeting on Mon., Dec. 4 at 7:00 at the Park District office.
