Longtime commissioner, mayor dies at 94


By TRACEY MCMANUS
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS - With
almost all of his 94 years
spent in High Springs, most
generations living in the city
today may have once walked
into Marcus Hunt's downtown
store, heard him serving in city
government or saw him in his


retirement.
Dean Davis, a longtime
friend of Hunt, remembers all
of it - from walking into his
Hunt and Sheely Dry Cleaners
in the 1950s and talking to him
as a commissioner and friend
in recent years.
"I can remember the smell
of clean linen in his store,"


Davis said. "And he got High
Springs to where it is today.
It's still got a warm, family
atmosphere."
Hunt's time in High Springs
started in 1917 when he was 2
years old and ended August 18,
2009 when he passed away at

HUNT


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA - Residents of
an Alachua home on NW 158th
Ave. might consider themselves
lucky to be alive after a massive
water oak came crashing down
and destroyed their home late
Tuesday night.
Grace Garrison normally
gets home from her second
job around 11:15 p.m., just in
time to sit down in front of the
living room television, rest her
feet and flip over to the tennis
channel where she likes to
watch tennis stars Venus and


Serena Williams. But Tuesday
night, Garrison was running
late, arriving home at about
seven minutes before midnight.
"When I first got out ofmy
truck and was walking up to the
porch, I heard what sounded like
acorns falling," she said.
Moments later, Garrison
found out that what she heard
was more than acorns falling on
her roof.
"As I turned the key to open
my front door, I heard this really

have access to a cost-
free and needle-free flu
immunization this year,
thanks to a partnership
between the Alachua
County Health Department,
the UF Emerging Pathogens
Institute, Alachua County
Public Schools and various
other local organizations.
Under the Protecting
Alachua County from

kindergarten-through-

spray does offer some
protection from the swine
flu," said Dr. Glenn Morris,
director of the UF Emerging
Pathogens Institute. "That
could be very significant,
especially if a swine flu
vaccine is..not widely
available until later in the
year."
FluMist will be'
administered at . local
schools in October and
through mid-November.
Schools will be sending
home consent forms and
information sheets during
the first week of the school
year, which began August
24. Parents who want
their children immunized
must send the forms back
to school by September
24. The form will allow
health-care professionals to
screen out those children
who should not get FluMist,
such as those with asthma.


private health care provider.
Organizers of the
immunization program are
targeting elementary and
middle school students
because they are considered
'super spreaders' of the
flu virus. The goal is to
immunize 70% of that
group, which is the level at
\which flu protection spreads
to the rest of the population.
"Studies clearly show
that immunizing children
is a very effective way of
cutting down on,flu in the
rest of the community,"
said Dr. Parker Small, Jr.,
professor emeritus with the
UF College of Medicine.
"In an average year more
than 30 people in Alachua
County die of flu or related
illnesses like pneumonia,
and every indication is that
the coming year will 'be
worse because of'swine flu.
We want to prevent those
deaths."
Health officials also
point to the direct benefits
for the immunized children'
and their families.
"Unfortunately, children

said Pat Hughes, Alachua,
County Public Schools'
director of health services.
"If we can widely immunize
our students, we think
they'll have a happier and
healthier winter."
"Children who are
immunized against the flu
are much less likely to bring
it home to their parents and
other family members."
said Jean Munden, director
of the health department.
"That means fewer students
missing school and fewer
adults missing work."'

Hannah Montana

She has the best of both worlds


By KEES BOER
Entertainment Writer
Hannah Montana
is such an interesting
phenomena - a story about
someone who is rich and
famous, who really became
rich and famous. It's almost.
like reality TV. On top of
that, her real life dad plays
her dad on the show.
This weekend, I sat
down to watch Hannah
Montana - The Movie. I
had interviewed Billy Ray
Cyrus for the paper before
and it's always nice to see
someone on TV that you
actually know. I remember
him saying his daughter,
Miley, was going to become
an actress. I think he
wanted me to interview her.


I was so busy at the time
and I wasn't sure, because
so many parents have told
me about their child being
extremely talented. That
was a big mistake!
At the same time,
I wasn't necessarily
looking forward to it that
much, because so much
in Hollywood is fake
and plastic. The- movie
actually starts in the same
vein. Hannah Montana is
walking through Beverly
Hills, buying everything
she can, and the whole
materialistic mindset was
just disgusting me a little
bit. Trust me, once you
start working with children
in third world countries,
excessive spending

becomes repulsive.
Hannah is getting out
of control and Miley is
slowly but surely being
forgotten. That's the story'
of the movie. Her dad is
rightfully becoming quite
concerned and he wants her
to learn what life is really
like. He decides to send her
back to the place where she
was born, a little town in
Tennessee, similar actually
to Alachua!
At this point, the film
becomes a bit of a fish out
of water story. Hannah just
doesn't fit in anymore...
but. Miley does and brings
home the message about
giving up the rat race to
help others, and how life
isn't so much about just
doing your own thing.
I was also excited to see
a friend of mine play the
love interest of Billy Ray
Cyrus' character - Miss


The Movie


Melora Hardin, who has
also been featured in an
interview in the paper.
This DVD has some
really nice extras on it.
There are a few deleted
scenes, and some bloopers,
but also one featurette where
Miley takes you around
Franklin, Tennessee, and
Emily Osmond takes you to
a few spots in Los Angeles.
An additional featurette
includes Jason Earles and
various members of the
crew discussing what they
do.
I don't have too any
reservations about the
film itself. In one of the
featurettes Miley takes the
Lord's name in vain' and
Emily Osment takes us
to a place in Los Angeles,
which seems to promote
the evolution theory as a
science. Outside of that, it's
a good DVD to own.

you get for $72?

Ask Your Dentist
'by Douglas M. Adel, D.D.S.

The role of saliva


Q: Why is saliva
important?
A: Saliva is your mouth's
lubricant, a mixture of water,
mucous, protein and enzymes.
As such, it performs a variety
of roles. For one thing, it
moistens and begins to break
drown starch. It also binds
chewed food into a ball' or
bolus o you can swallow it.
Saliva also contributes
to our sense of taste. That's
because taste buds don't
react to dry' food. Saliva is
generated by three pairs of
major salivary glands and
numerous minor glands in
your cheeks and lips. The
paratid glands are near
the base of the ear. The
sublingual glands are under
the tongue. The third type is


the submandibular, which is
under your jawbone. They
generally secrete a small but
steady amountiofsaliva. Food
- sometimes just thinking
about it - will trigger a heavy
.flow of saliva. That's where
the phrase "mouth-watering"
comes from.
Saliva also helps prevent
tooth decay. It provides the
liquid that can help wash out
particles of food left behind
after eating. Among the
minerals that are in saliva are
.calcium and phosphorous,
which help strengthen tooth
enamel. Getmoreinformation
from your dentist about saliva
and about the other factors
that contributes to keeping
your mouth healthy and
functioning properly.

New gifted program


in place in Newberry


that will be administered in October.
SThe department is armed with 17,500 doses of
the nasal spray and hopes to vaccinate 70 percent
oflthe children in this age group since they carry
the most germs and are most likely to spread the
flu, said Jean Munden, administrator for the health
department.
"The intention of the mist is that if you can
target the children that may take diseases home with
them to parents and grandparents, we can prevent
a flu outbreak in Alachua County," Munden said.
While the mist is not designed to target the.
current H1N1 virus, better known as swine flu, it
is another precaution taken amid paranoia of the
pandemic.
Besides avoiding the flu, Santa Fe High School
Principal Bill Herschleb said the first week has
also been about avoiding traffic. He said by the
time the dismissal bell rings, roads are congested
witfi cars of parents who like to escort their kids at
the start of the school year before letting them ride
thi buses.
: "It is terrible traffic," Herschleb said. "During
tif first week, parents feel compelled to pick up
arV drop off their children."
B3ut the start of the academic year is also
bringing a $4.8 million science building to the
AlIchua school. The building, funded by the
school board's capital improvement money, houses
eight classrooms, digital microscopes, student
interactive tablets and is expected to get a seal
by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental
Design for its environmentally friendly structure,


Herschleb said.
The new school year is also the start of a
44-student magnet program at Oak View Middle
School in Newberry, according to the school's
principal, Karen Clarke.
Enrollment is up by 50 students as sixth-
graders from, High Springs, Alachua, Newberry,
Archer and Gainesville have come to participate in
the gifted program, which will expand to all grades
at the school within three years.
And as volunteers from the Alachua County
Lion's Club helped direct traffic outside of W.W.
Irby Elementary School in Alachua, inside there
were nearly 97 new computers to support the new
Web-based software at the school this year. '
"In the classroom, we now have-another vehicle
for instruction," said Principal Lina Bedoya-
Burklew.
SAnd at A.L. Mebane Middle School in
Alachua, Principal Shane Andrew is gearing up for
the school's first after-school program, which will
launch in three to four weeks.
The program is aiming to provide 80 children
with academic and recreational activities four days
per week. Although the school is still waiting on
the funding from the United States Department of
Education, Andrew said this prospect and a new
leadership team at the school has teachers and
students armed with a good outlook for the school
year.
"There seems to be a buzz in the air that change
is good sometimes," he said.

HUNT: ____________________
Continued from page A 1

Hunt had wife of 72 years.


North Florida Regional Hospital
at age 94.
His role in the community
started as a businessman, when he
began working at Henry Couver's
dry cleaning store in 1936, which
he later bought and named Hunt
and Sheely Dry Cleaners.
In a post-war era when most
Americans were struggling to
get by, Hunt joined the City
Commission and served on it for
31 years, including four one-year
terms as mayor between 1963 and
.1987.
Leonard Withey, High Springs
city manager from 1980 to 2000,
spent several years in government
with Hunt and said he was a fiscal
conservative who was as careful
with the city's money as he was
with his own.
Nearly 50 years ago, when
commissioners were paid $10 per
month, Withey said Hunt even
offered to give up his pay until the
city got in better financial shape.
"He was quiet most of the
time in meetings to where you
would almost think he was
asleep," Withey said. "But if
you mentioned anything about
spending money, he was wide


awake."
Friends say he was passionate
about always doing what was best
for the city, and in his 31 years in
government, he became someone
residents trusted.
"You could talk to him about
anything and get good, sound
advice," Davis said. "He was a
true statesman who always wanted
to do well for High Springs."
Hunt also worked to raise
a family with his wife of 72
years, Georgia Daniel Hunt, and
daughters, Janette and Annette
Sheely.
Hunt's other passion was his
church, First Baptist Church of
High Springs, where his family
said he spent much of his time
after his retirement in 1984. That
same church is where funeral
services were held -Saturday
before his burial at High Springs
Cemetery.
"He just .really cared about
the community," Annette Sheely
said. "There was a lot of devotion
there."

HOME CRUSHED:

loud crashing sound and
everything was shaking,"
she recounted.
"That's when I knew it
was- the tree falling on my
house."
Inside the home were
Garrison's son, daughter
and grandson. In the dead
of night she called out to
her children, eventually
climbing in to pull them
from the home. She was
able to get her daughter and
4-year-old grandson out of
the mangled wreckage that
was once her home.
"My son Chad was
really stuck under all of
the rubble," said Garrison.
Before the tree fell, Chad
had been sleeping in his
bedroom. But his doorway
was crushed by the heavy
.limbs of the water-soaked
oak tree. He eventually
managed to dig his way out
of the home.
The dark hours of
night masked the extent of
the damage. The home is
a total loss by all accounts.
By morning light, the home
looked more like a pile of
firewood than a place to
sleep. The rotted and water-
logged oak tree that stood
just yards from the home
apparently fell in the wake
of torrential downpours
Tuesday evening.
The tree's main trunk
landed across the middle
of the home, crushing the
spot where, on most nights,
Garrison would have been
catching her nightly dose


A.L. Mebane lived in home


of the Williams sisters.
The rest of the tree was
sprawled across the house
from end to end. Despite
the enormity of the tree,
Garrison's Ford Explorer,
parked alongside the
house just moments before
incident, seems to have
been spared any major
damage.
A a c h u a
Commissioner Jean
Calderwood said she has
known the family for years
and arrived at the home at
around 7:30 a.m. She heard
about the fallen tree from
Chad Showers' supervisor.
"Chad called to let his
supervisor know a limb fell
on his home and he would
be in late today,", said
Calderwood.
"When his supervisor
called me, I came by to
check on the family and
when I got here, I realized
this was not just limb,"
Calderwood commented.
As word spread of
the crushed home pnd
Garrison's misfortune, a
parade of family, friends
and community resources
converged on the scene,.
EverReady Tree Service
was among the first to
respond, donating their
services, which included
equipment and a crew to
secure the site and gain
limited access to the home.
Alachua Police Department
officers secured the
scene and helped call in
community resources to


assist the family. Food
Lion, just down the road
from the shattered home,
donated beverages for the
family and those at the site.
Also on site was the
Rev. Adrian Weeks of
St. Matthew Missionary
Baptist Church, to which
the family belongs. Weeks
is mobilizing a community
effort to help the family
in the long term to
secure housing and other
necessities. Meanwhile,
the North Central Florida
Chapter of the American
Red Cross responded
to deal with immediate
concerns of food, clothing
and shelter.
The American Red
Cross has reserved a
motel room in Alachua
for Garrison, her children
and grandchild as well as
providing the four with
short-term basic needs.
The future for Garrison
and her children remains
an uncertainty. The home,
where, three generations
of the family had grown
up, no longer exists. The
history of the home goes
back before the Garrisons
moved there in the early
1970s. A.L. Mebane lived
in the home for many years.
An Alachua icon, Mebane,
for whom the local middle
school is named, lived in
the home, which sits atop
a hill and once overlooked
the Alachua County
Training Center.
Staring in awe


Wednesday afternoon at
the now-obliterated home,
Alachua Mayor Bonnie
Burgess recollected
memories of it from her
childhood. Burgess'
grandparents lived in the
home across the street.
"I remember when we
were kids and A.L. Mebane
lived in that house.
"I used to look up at
that house and think it must
be built on the biggest hill
in Alachua," she said.
Though the home
appears to have been
recently remodeled, it
appear Wednesday that little
more than a few belongings
might be salvageable from
it. Alachua police officers
were able to pull out a few
of the 4-year-old's toys
while others managed to
gather a few of Garrison's
family heirlooms.
O v e rwhe lm ed ,
Garrison and Showers
thanked The American
Red. Cross and St. Matthew
Missionary Baptist Church.
But Garrison said she didn't
know where her family
would go next.
"I don't have insurance
on the home anymore; and
I don't know what we're
going to do," she said.
The Rev. Weeks
is asking, community
members to step forward
and support the family.
St. Matthew Missionary
Baptist Church is
coordinating long-term
efforts to help the family.

Excessive Heat: Riding the cool wave this summer


By JENNI WILLIAMS
Communications
Coordinator
Haven Hospice
Special to
Alachua County Today
Summertime equals
heat-excessive heat for
those living in the South.
According to the United
States Environmental
Protection Agency's Web
site, during an average
summer in the United States,
approximately 1,500 people
die of conditions such as
heat exhaustion or heat
stroke caused by excessive
heat events. That's more
people than those who die
as the result of hurricanes,
lightning, tornadoes, floods
and earthquakes combined.
Excessive heat can


affect anyone. Normally,
the 'body cools itself by
increasing blood flow to
the skin and perspiring.
However, when heat-related
illnesses occur, the body's
temperature control system
becomes overloaded. When
this happens, perspiring
may not be enough to help
cool you down. Older
adults are more vulnerable
to heat-related illnesses. As
we age, the body's cooling
mechanisms may. become
impaired. Health conditions
such as chronic illness,
mental impairment and
obesity can also increase an
individual's vulnerability.
Taking certain medications
may affect the body's
cooling mechanisms as
well.
There are many ways


to stay cool during the hot
months. First and foremost,
drink a lot of water.
"People tend to forget to
drink," says Vema Groger,
dietician with Haven
Hospice. "Remember to
carry a bottle of water with
you at all times and have
it handy. Drinking water
needs to become a habit."
Groger also points out that
a lot of illnesses can be
traced back to not being
well-hydrated. Lack of
hydration in the body can
result in dehydration as well
as increased inflammation
and the acceleration of
diseases.
In addition to staying
hydrated, the most
important measure to
preventing overheating,
according to medicinenet.


corn, is to avoid vigorous
physical exercises in
hot and humid weather.
Raising your body's
temperature by exercising
in hot and humid weather
could become dangerous.
If you are one who loves
working outside in your
garden or flower bed, take
frequent breaks and drink
plenty of water. Alcohol
and caffeinated drinks may
cause dehydration, so it is
best to avoid those liquids.
Air conditioning is also
key to staying cool. If
your community or home
is not air-conditioned,
visit the local mall, movie
theater or library. Wearing
lightweight, light-colored
and loose-fitted clothing
also will help you stay cool
during the hot summer


HAMPTON INN:
Continued from page Al

There are more than 1,300 Hampton Inns in the nation


"I don't want to jinx
myself by giving a time
frame," he,said.
After the plans are
complete, the hotel needs
to obtain a set of permits
before construction can
begin.
He said the Hampton
Inn is expected.to provide
between 18 and 25 jobs
depending on how many
part-time and how many
full-time employees the
hotel decides to hire.
The nearest Hampton
Inns are one in Gainesville
and one in Lake City. This
will be the only one in
Alachua.
Because of the size
of the market in the area,
there should be at least 15
miles between Hampton
Inns. If they were any
closer, it would be like
they are competing with
:themselves, he said.
Pole said many local
business owners-:have said
:there is a need for another
-hotel in the city. He said
the area is growing, and


the newest hotel in Alachua
is about 30 years old.
Hampton Inn, being the
newest' hotel, will have
an advantage over its
competition.
"The people that come
to Alachua will. stay in
Alachua," he said.
Local businesses and
industries often send people
to hotels in Gainesville,
Poole said. The hotel will
hopefully put an end to that.
The four-story hotel
is planned to be located
across from Santa Fe High
School on U.S. Highway
441.
Among its amenities


will be an outside pool, a
meeting room and a sundry
shop. Each room will have
high speed internet and a
microwave.
Poole said the City of
Alachua has been helpful
in the process so far, and


he looks forward to having
a Hampton Inn in the area.
There are more than
1,300 Hampton Inns
throughout the nation. They
are a part of the Hilton
Family hotels.

l Crime Stoppers Most C


With a new school
year beginning in an area
with two large college
campuses, it is important to
address some very serious
crimes: sexual assault,
rape, and date rape. Rape
is this nation's most under-
reported violent crime.
Approximately 7,800,000
women have been raped
by an intimate partner at
some point in their lives
according tp the National


A message from the desk of

Sheriff Sadie Darnell

Coalition Against Domestic
Violence. This number does
not take into account males
raped by females because
those crimes are rarely
reported.
When does a date
become a crime? It happens
when one partner forces the
other to have sex against
his or her will. If you want
to keep a good time from
turning bad, keep this in
mind: "Against their will is


against the law."
You have the right
to refuse a date without
feeling guilty. If you do
accept a date, it doesn't
mean you owe him (or her)
anything. If you do get into
a situation where you are
sexually assaulted, there are
some things to remember
in order to help catch and
prosecute a rapist. First, if
you are able to do so- leave
something, at the crime


scene. This will connect
you to the suspect and the
scene. To preserve valuable
evidence, don't change
your clothes, bathe, shower,
or douche. Try to recall as
much information about the
incident as possible. The
important thing is to get to
safety, call for medical help
and then report the incident
to law enforcement. Above
all, remember...it is not
your fault!

May we all stand that test


In Saint Luke chapter 5,
Jesus is followed by a huge
crowd to the shores of Lake
Gennesaret or the Sea of
Galilee, because the local
synagogues were too small
to handle the large numbers
that were showing up to
hear Him teaching. During.
our Lord's time, the area
around the lake was the
richest and most populated
of the Holy Land. It wasn't
unusual for there to be
four thousand boats on the
lake, catching the abundant
fishes. I mention this so that
we understand that there
would have been plenty of
boats available for Jesus to
use to get to a point where
he could, teach everyone.
Out of all those boats, why
would Jesus pick the boat
of Simon to use? Was it
fate or luck of the draw?
No, in actuality, Simon or
Peter, as Jesus would later
name him, and the brothers
James and John had all
been followers of John the


Baptist and he had sent
them to Jesus. They had
been with Jesus on several
different
occasions
during ' His
early ministry
but apparently I
had gone back
to their living
as fishermen.
When Jesus

lake, He
reco gnized

the trio' while LEAS
they were All Saints

nets on the A parish
shore and Christian E
asked Simon Chu
to take Him
out a little way in his boat
so that He could teach the
crowd.
The purpose of Christ's
being there was to catch
men's souls and bring them
to a better understanding
of God. The lesson the
Lord -taught the people


ai

was undoubtedly about the
Kingdom of God, :about
membership in it and about

in the world.
It probably

would remember Jesus'
lessons and be more open
to the message of sAlvation
and their membership in the

kingdom of God, offered by
Christ's crucifixion, death
and ascension.
After the Lord had
finished teaching, he had
Simon take the boat out to
deeper waters. This was
to perform the miracle
of the giant catch of fish.
Why did Jesus perform
this miracle? Was it in
appreciation for the use
of Simon's boat? Or was
it to stir up the emotions
of a simple fisherman to
a higher calling? That's
exactly what happened.
These men had fished all
night long, relying on their
knowledge of the lake
and the fish, which got
them nothing. They were
very weary souls. They
thought another attempt
would be futile, but on the
word of Jesus, their Lord
and Master, they dropped
their nets over the side
of the boat. They were
immediately rewarded for
their faith in Him. This
giant load of fish started to
break the net, then started
to sink the boats when they
gathered them in. This
miracle caused Simon,, and
James and John, to be filled


with awe and Godly fear.
Simon fell at Jesus' feet and
cried, "Depart from me;for
lam a sinful man, O Lord. "
It was his own feeling of
unworthiness being in the
presence of God that caused
him to cry out like that.
What happened next wasn't
God leaving but moving
closer to Simon and taking
his hand to reassure him.
When we cry out to God
in our sinfulness "Depart
from me, 0 Lord", He says
earnestly ind emphatically,
"Come unto Me!"
Not only does Christ
want Simon with Him at
this time on the boat but He
wants him to remain with
Him'. Jesus says, "Fear
not; from henceforth thou
shalt catch men." Not
only does Christ say this
to Simon Peter, He also
includes James and John
in this call to the ministry.
These fishermen are called
by God to spread the
Gospel. They are called to
'catch men alive' in the net
of Christ, so that those who
were caught in the netmay
enjoy life more fully, more
abundantly.
As we read in the


Gospel of Saint Luke,
Peter, James and John
accepted the call from the
Lord. "And when they
had brought their ships to
land, they forsook all, and
followed him. " Why would
Jesus give them this large
catch when He knew they
were going to leave it as
soon as they got to shore?
It was to assure them that
'earthly success was Christ's
gift and that spiritual
success must be preferred
over worldly possessions.
Their fellowship with
Jesus during His ministry
was more precious than
the world's wealth could
ever be. It was from
fellowship with Christ that
the disciples were to learn
their profession, a very real
and most blessed thing.
It was learning of
Christ Himself, who is
the embodied Truth-and
Every soul will be brought
to this same test sooner
or later. At death, if not
before, we are all asked if
we can forsake all to follow
Christ into undiscovered
lands. May we all stand
that test!

DATED: August 12 2009


Larry and the other boys in his neighborhood didn't
have many baseballs to play with. Because his dad was
away fighting in the war, Larry and his mother did not
have enough money to buy baseballs.
So, when the last ball is gone, Larry has to make a
big decision. He has a baseball that Uncle Chuck caught
at a Cleveland Indians baseball game. Should he give up
his Big League prize for the neighborhood team? The
answer can be found in "The Sacrifice."


Napo.


ChapA1 F-rv, - R agad K FdY4


Uncle Chuck brought his hand out from behind his back and
handed Larry a baseball. He said he had caught the ball at an
Indians game before he went into the Army. It was a pop
foul hit by Ken "Butch" Kelter in a 1941 game against the
Philadelphia Athletics.
Uncle Chuck said that if the boys needed it, they could use the
ball for their games.
Larry was stunned. All he could do was stare at the ball. He had
never held a big league baseball before, and now he actually had
one of his own. He tried to imagine who might have played with
this ball. He wondered if his favorite played; Bob Feller, had thrown
this ball during the game. Larry gave his uncle a giant hug and said
thanks. Uncle Chuck told him to put the ball away for now so
it wouldn't get lost.
Larry hurried into the house and set the ball in a place of honor
on the dresser in his room. It was the finest gift he had qver gotten.
Later that afternoon Lany and Uncle -
--------
Chuck went to the open lot for the
afternoon game. When they got to the
baseball field, Mr. Williams was coming
out to sit on his porch. Uncle Chuck
walked over to meet the old man. Larry
saw the two men sit down in the porch
swing to watch the game.
The boys divided up into teams and flipped
a pop bottle cap to see who would start in -
the field and who would be the first to bat
Larry's pitching had been good, and by the fourth
inning his team was up by two runs. But while his
team was at bat, the boys heard a whistle and a freight
train rumbled down the track.
Usually, the game stopped until a train passed. This time, however,
the batter stayed at the plate and the pitcher threw the ball. The
hitter connected with the ball and popped it foul in front of the
oncoming train. The ball bounced once, hit the front of the train,

A. The boys used a pop bottle cap before the game. What is a pop
bottle cap? Are they still used? Why is food sealed in containers
like cans and bottles?


and rolled down the track. The boys could only watch as the ball
bounced several times under the train.
Once the train passed, the left fielder found the ball between the
rails. The fielder threw the ball to the pitcher. Larny could see that
the ball had been damaged. All the boys ran to the pitcher's spot
for a look. The pitcher laid the ball in his glove. There was a huge
gash on one side and the binding string was already beginning
to unwind.
Several boys had old or damaged balls like the one that just collided
with the train. They played with the old balls at home, but no one
had a ball that was in good condition.
Then Larry thought about the ball Uncle Chuck had just given him.
He did not want to give it up. As he stood thinking about what to
do, Larry could see the ball laying on his dresser at home.


B. Find out the following about a baseball. How much does it
weigh? What size is it? What is it made of? What shape are the
cover pieces?
